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.
