Renovation is the turning into a plastered wall, the Monroe Mirror Office turning into a men's rest room, and the school turning into a disaster area. Renova- tion is cubicles and cubbyholes carved out of corners, and team teaching in a room large enough to hold u team. Renovation is leaving the room to go to a place that isn't there . . . "Hey, where's the bathroom? . . . Who took the bannisters? . , . Whatever happened to Sep- tember? . . ."

The ancient Egyptian technique of designing and planning out a struc- ture on paper before building it is taught in modern mechanical drawing rooms iust rebuilt for the art department. Conversely, optical art fpaintings that dazzle the eyej and composite sculpture, an innovation in the arts, are being taught in pre-renovated art rooms. And in an up-to-date music suite, the classical quartets of Beethoven and the jazz quartets of Brubeck bounce boldly off an acoustical ceiling. The principles of gravity and nuclear fission, the research of Galileo and Einstein, and the vision of Mendel and Darwin command equally the atten- tion of young students of the sciences for whom Monroe is now equipping a special wing where the yet-to-be-discovered may be sought. Similarly in social studies the past provides the basis for the present and the key to the future. In our classrooms, history reaches from Sparta to Selma, from feudalism to freedom, from Magna Carta to Atlantic Charter, from James Monroe to James Monroe. The by-words of today's business world are speed, accuracy, and competence. So, too, in secretarial studies classrooms. There, Egyptian word- pictures, hieroglyphics, find kinship with stenography, the modern language of symbols. Steno, however, reflects the rapid pace at which twentieth-century America moves, and as we fly at heretofore undreamed of speeds, so the stenography student's pen advances across her pad and the typist's fingers fly across the keys. All of the foregoing aspects of Monroe's curriculum reflect a deep concern for the mind. Each day, however, in our gymnasiums, on our fields, in our pool, a very old concept is renewed: a sound mind within a sound body. And so both health education departments provide a varied program designed to develop physically fit, mentally alert young men and women. The past is history. The present is recorded above. The future waits. 'i -I 2121- me fl M 1:11?44i-if :ga :r:.:.ffi 9212. :t.'IW::Y.1: t 1 ' 'rr :t'O'9'!"' t'?"""'t1r9tint-'O'i'i5taA'?'4"f.fTZf': Hifi?
