The French Clubs Le Cercle Francis, was organized into two sep- arate groups this year, French Club I and II. They were not considered as activity clubs so it was nec- essary to have meetings during the class periods every month. The French Club is the oldest club in Manhattan High School. It was originated by Mrs. Robert Kuhn, and Miss Snapp has been the sponsor for the last two years. The programs of French Club I consisted of speakers, contests, and plays. Mr. Pyle, a French speaker f1'om Kansas State College, spoke about the French Christians and other customs of France. Later as a program the class had a baseball game, all of the questions being asked about French gram- mar. Also there was a French knowledge contest, the grand prize being a candy bar. Officers of French I were Betty Boone, mlle. le president, Irene Swanson, mlle. le secretaireg and Victoria Majors, mmle. le president des programmes. An outstanding meeting of French Club II was the Christmas party at which time the drama, "Three Little Pigs", was presented in French. A Valentine party was held in February. At this time valentines were exchanged among the members. At one program a quiz contest was given about French civilization. Officers of French Club II were Dorothy May Summers, mlle. le presidentg Joanne Aubel, mlle. le vice-presidentg Martha Baird, mlle. le secrettaireg and Barbara Bouck, mlle. le president des pro- grammes. Science Club Continued from page 33 entire club was divided into three science divisions, each working on different phases of physical science. The astronomy division, with David Gates as chairman, made a six-inch reflecting telescope which was entered in the Kansas Junior Academy of Sci- ence meeting at Lawrence. Later the group plotted stars with the telescope. Many varied programs and numerous guest speakers added to the interest of the group. The radio division of the club was headed by Gabe Sellers. Discussions on topics concerning radio made up the largest share of the programs. A photo-elec- tric cell was made and entered in the Kansas Jun- ior Academy of Science meeting at Lawrence. No1'man Crook was the chairman of the aeronaut- ics division of the Physics Club. Discussions were led by different members of the group on numerous phases of aviation. A sextant was completed and entered in the Junior Academy of Science meeting at Lawrence by the group. The various officers of the camera division of the club were Donald Sollenberger, president: Ward Haylett, vice-president and program chairman, and Paul Jorgenson, secretary-treasurer. Throughout the year the club meetings were de- voted mainly to the students and their activities along the photographic line. Once in a while speak- ers came in to give the fans pointers about what's what in the photographic world-but for the main part, the fans themselves planned and carried out the programs. The club's second semester activities featured a snapshot contest. We won't go into the particulars here fexcept to say that the prize winning picture appea1's in this annual! because the important thing is that no other club has sponsored a contest-and it just goes to show, that though the Camera Club was only started at the beginning of this school year, it has accomplished a lot and given its members a 50 Class History Continued from page 20 Those music lovin' seniors really brought down the high ratings at the annual Music Festival at Topeka. Betty Anne Faubion and David Gates were rated highly superior for their piano and clarinet solos, respectively. A superior rating was given Edith Hanna for her violin solo, and Margaret Col- lins was given an excellent plus rating for her vocal solo. About this same time, Faye Clapp, our artistic senior, won second prize in the individual awards offered to contestants in the Art exhibit at Linds- borg. A high honor to be bestowed on such an un- suspecting female! With their audience "rolling in the aisles", the Senior play cast deserved the highest of praises. "The Torchbearers" had a most noteworthy cast, headed by Martha Baird,-oh these actresses! Bar- bara Bouck and Bill Docking, Junior play leads, sup- plied more than their share of laughs. Practically stealing the show was Bill Packer, another "new" student, as an eccentric and dapper gentleman tif you can believe itj. Other members of the cast were: Mary Margaret Arnold, Betty Ann Faubion, Dor- othy May Summers, Mary Louise Emery, Merrill Peterson, Bruce Bryan, Norman Ross, and Russell Minnis. Due largely to the work of the senior members, Manhattan was host to the first annual convention of the Kansas Fede1'ation of Student Councils. Al- most seventy-five students from twenty schools were entertained by us, and had a most enjoyable time iso they saidj-at least it was our sincere wish that they did! Mary Louise was the president of the con- vention, a most worthy position! She had her share of the trouble, too-just ask her! The Senior Sneak, as sneaks always are, wasn't a surprise to anyone, nevertheless the seniors did enjoy it. As usual, lots of tricks were played on the gals, but lots of fun was had by both male and fe- males. Even though the class was a "remarkable" one fwe must put this in quotes because it has been used so oftenj lots of the sophisticated seniors cried at Baccalaureate, and Commencement promises to hold its sorrows! F.F. A. Club Continued from page 32 ' reception at which time formal installation of the oflicers was held. .Club members, who are also engaged in various farming activities, have an average of 3.5 projects per member. The net worth on January 1st of these members was 54,3823 each one is encouraged by the increase of his net worth to build his farm- ing program until high school is completed. Members of this organization are Amos Wilson, president, Burk Bayer, vice-presidentg Dale Knight. treasurer, Adelbert Wilson, reporter, Grant Poole, secretaryg Lawrence Jenkins, watch dogg Orville Gil- man, Wayne Lewis, Raymond Nelson, Jr. Palmer, Raph Newell, Norman Woolgar, Alvin Abbott, Mel- vin Barry, Ioys Guest, Oliver McMahon, Roy Mc- Manis, Ray McManis, Ulysses Mathews, Kenneth Parker, Jack Richter, Darold Ukena, William York, Carl Lemarr, Walter Warren, George Wreath, and Mr. Lee Walters, an honorary member. Mr. Harold Kugler is the advisor. great deal of pleasure. We cannot write of the Camera Club without men- tioning that it is a member of the Junior Academy of Science-a fact that Mr. Parrish and his group are extremely proud of, and rightly so.
