English Teachers - Mrs. Helen Gilmer, Mrs. Grace Whitting- ton, Mrs.Myrtle Taylor, Mrs. Mary Pruner, Mrs. Hester Adams, and Mrs. Louella Vicars - are consulting the card catalog for suitable parallel reading. Mrs. Helen Gilmer ' s Speech Class is in " full swing. " Literature is a meeting of individuals; it comes alive when the reader meets the writer. The teaching of literature is a living art; it is intended to direct the students attention to understanding the author ' s tone and purpose and to his appreciating the uses of imagination. Through literature one becomes aware of his place in time - the great flow of human experience from past to present - into future. Reading helps one to appreciate how people of yesterday can enrich the brief hours of today; hence, how one ' s life, in turn, shapes the history of tomorrow. Jane Parks assists her class mates in vocabulary Mrs. Grace VTiittington informed her students that creative writing is es- drill. sential to understanding in English. 24

“Me a or (J a cu aiion Jane Kiser explains the figure for a problem in trigonometry. Lebanon High School provides for its stu- dents to obtain five full units in mathematics before graduation. Although only two units in mathematics are required for graduation many students take advantage of the college preparatory courses that are offered. The members of the mathematics department strive to develop basic concepts which will enable the student to solve his problems of counting and calculating. Mr. Donald Moore, Mr. Ronald Osborne, Mrs. Mary Ann White and Miss Blanche Campbell examine teaching aids for the mathematics program. Realizing that nearly every occupation in the modern world of science and communication depends upon a basic knowledge of mathematics, we feel that a student should be encouraged to go as far in fiiathematics as his ability allows. WTiether he intends to go to college, enter a technical field or learn a trade, he can ex- pect to find a use and a need for all the mathematics he can acquire. In order to create an interest in mathematics, our program strives to present a challenge to the student; and at the same time to create an atmosphere in which the student will have to think for himself in solving practical problems. Finally, we try to stimulate the student to explore and experiment with some of the newer concepts of mathematics.

QIn cfersi an c in a Although Shakespeare ' s MACBETH is not easy to understand, Seniors recall the theme, " To be too ambitious can lead to disaster. " The secondary school English teacher es- tablishes a program developing the many separate skills involved in reading growth. Constant atten- tion to vocabulary building, comprehension de- vices and pre-reading ' ' hints” are integrated in a program to improve reading skills and literature appreciation for each student. This program should challenge the strong. Stories and plays give insight into the com- mon problems. They lead one to see the familiar in a new light — a quiet scene in nature or a cas- ual meeting of people. Poetry has been treasured by people of all countries, and story telling poems and some of the brightest gems in the literature treasures. Grammar provides the terminology with which one learns to discuss languageproblems; a know- ledge of grammar is part of the equipment of an educated person. Finally English expresses our search for the good life and sustains our faith that we can achieve it. Mrs. Adams ' students are striving to become proficient spellers. 25
