THE SHOES WE QHOOSE
B y Burton Wells
N VVALKINC along the way, we as individuals place our own patterns
upon the sand-the patterns of our footprints. They are of various sizes,
the markings are different, unique, and distinctive. That you know. The
shoes we choose make the difference. The shoes we choose to wear at
work and play are important because they definitely express the kind of
people we are and the positions we hold in life. They reveal our ideals,
careers, achievements, and failures. They show something of our per-
sonalities. Look at any manis shoes and you will know something of the
man. Sherlock Holmes, no doubt, could read our footprints and write a
biography of each of us.
The shoes we choose may not always reveal our original hopes and
dreams or the person we aspired to be, because circumstances sometimes
prevent the realization of dreams. Millions of people may wear one kind
of shoe even though they prefer another style and leather. There are
many reasons why people are not able to choose their own professions,
and thus they cannot be blamed for their choices. Perhaps at choosing
time their choices were faulty or perhaps they did not persevere to
achieve their dreams. Failure in perseverance would certainly lay the
responsibility upon the chooser.
But truly, we can say that the shoes we wear do indicate our positions
in life, our wealth, our health, or our personalities. Our shoes leave their
distinct markings upon the sands. Seniors, briefly, I leave you this chal-
lenge. lf shoes mark the man, choose your shoes well. Take time in the
choosing. Give the matter serious thought. Seek advice. Be careful that
the shoes are suitable for your journey and that they will help you realize
your dreams of happiness and success.

TIME OF OUR LIVES
HY, THE senior class has been this wayl
They left their footprints. I would know their
footprints anywhere-in Africa or Kalamazoo.
And these tracks were made by shoes worn in
service and useful activities. They come from
the high school and lead out in the world. From
the markings here l note they have spent much
time in giving, not in receiving. Worn down at
the heel, halfsoled-shows how busy they were.
These seniors walked firmly, showing they knew
where they were going.
Say, folks, finding these brings back memories
to me. I am reminded of the good old times we
had as students of this high school. lill just have
to tell you about our days here. Oh, we had the
time of our lives-wish you had been here too.
The first year of high school was a glorious
one because it marked the great change from
grammar school. There were 39 of us, all told,
and we came from several different schools. That
made it quite jolly and interesting as it gave us
a chance to get acquainted with more boys and
We selected Barbara Peltier as class presi-
dent, Dale Laughlin, as vice-president, Nancy
Manley, as secretary, Norma Duffy, as treasurer,
and Burton Wells and Tracy Ryan for our stu-
dent council. Miss Holden was our class spon-
As all freshmen have to be initiated, we also
had to make the sacrifice. On September 12,
we were initiated by the sophomores. We were
not too kindly treated by them but that night a
reception, held in our honor, soon made us for-
get our afternoon's difficulties. Dancing and re-
freshments were enjoyed. We all felt more a
part of the school after our initiation.
ln October we participated in the Hallowel-
en Carnival. We had several booths and much
fun. Nearly everyone in the class took part in
the annual Minstrel Show either in the Clee Club
chorus or a part in the show. In january there
vias a sleigh ride for the whole high school, each
class having its own sleigh. After the rides, re-
freshments and dancing were enjoyed by all.
Our class presented "Our Famous Ancestorsn
in the one-act play contest. Those taking part
were: Elaine Limoge, George VVhite, Norma
Duffy, Burton Wells and Nancy Manley. Miss
Day directed us and we won the trophy which
had been donated by the class of '47,
VVe didnit make much history our first vear
as we were all too busy watching the clock.'But
we had the time of our lives just being green
Our second year of High School we were
more familiar with the task which lay ahead of
us. The first day of school was a reunion with
teachers and friends. The second day found us
working in full force toward the goal we have
Class officers this year were president, Thel-
ma Preston, vice-president, Shirley Hazen, Sec-
retary, Nancy Manley, Treasurer, Ernest Dubu-
que and student council members were Evelyn
V arney and Dale Laughlin.
As the days passed by, our first big event was
freshman initiation, which gave us our CllZlIlCC
to retaliate but we gave the freshmen a warm
reception that night.
Each class took charge of the booths at the
"Fallowe'en Carnival. The Sophomore class had
two, one was the baseball throw and the other
the Tunnel of Thrills. XVe ended the nightis
entertainment with a movie called "The Phan-
tom of the Operaf,
Blue and Gold
Several members of our class took part when
the band played at the Armistice Day Parade,
and after the parade enjoyed a free turkey din-
ner. The band also played Memorial Day for
the Legion Parade.
Since we didnit have any Minstrel Show that
year, we started basketball practice very early.
'he girls, team had a very successful year. The
girls from our class who played were Barbara
Gonyeau, Barbara Sheperd, Barbara Peltier,
Norma Duffy and Elaine Limoge, The boys,
team carried twelve men and won twenty games
out of twenty-seven enough to get into the "CU
tournament played at Burlington, Our members
who played were George White, Burton Wells,
Dale Laughlin, Bernard Roque, Tracy Ryan and
Henry Blow. That year there were six cheer-
leaders and only one represented our class, Janet
About the middle of April baseball was well
under way. The last of the month we played
our first game defeating St. Anneis. We battled
our way to a successful season. The members of
our class who went out for baseball were George
White, Frank Tourville, David Sweeney, and
Tracy Ryan. On the afternoon of Memorial Day
we played a double header. The first which was
with the alumni, we lost 4-3. The second with
Fairfax, we won 7-6.
In September of 1949 the class of ,51 once
again gathered with old and new students to be-
gin a new chapter in our lives. That year study
hall was known as our home room, with Mr.
Morris taking charge. He was also our class
sponsor. Time for the choosing of class officers
came. Barbara Gonyeau was elected president,
Ernest Dubuque, vice-president, Barbara Shep-
ard, secretary, and Burton VVells, treasurer.
Members on student council were Janet Fisher
and Dale Laughlin. We received our class rings
on September 8. We were then in the best of
First came the Minstrel Show with practically
everyone taking part. VVe repeated the show
at North Hero Community Hall a week later
with another capacity audience. Then came the
Operetta with Virginia Adams, Evelyn Varney,
Elaine Limoge, Janet Fisher, Carol Vantine,
Claire Roussin, Burton Wells, George White,

In May we decorated the gym for our Junior

our class was well represented at the Music
Festival. Taking part in All State Chorus was

Nancy Manley, Barbara Shepard and George
White. Ruth V illemaire played the Graduation
Processional and Recessional. George White
was chosen as Class Marshal.
Barbara Gonyeau was chosen to attend Girls,
State at Montpelier last June and David Sweeney
and Burton Wells to attend Boys' State at North-
But time, that thief, stole our eleventh year in
school, and at last we became Seniors. Folks,
have you ever been a Senior in high school? You
say you have? Well, then I know you will enjoy
hearing about the times we had. Good times
were had by all, studying, taking part in sports,
and carrying on our other activities. We elected
the following officers to S6l'V6 us. Burton Wells
was our president, David Blatt was our vice-
president. We then voted for Ernest Dubuque
Blue and Gold
as secretary and Ruth V illemaire was our treasu-
rer. Our two student council members were
George White and Bernard Roque. The student
council then elected George as president. Miss
Holden was our home room teacher in our 12th
year. That year we also had Doris Jackson join
One of our means for earning money for our
class trip was to sell magazines. Out of our sale
of 35935.20 we made a profit of 832672.
One of our annual events was the Minstrel
Show in which most of the Seniors participated.
Dancing chorus was composed of eight Senior
girls who were Norma Duffy, Claire Roussin,
Janet Fisher, Virginia Adams, Barbara Peltier,
Nancy Manley, Carol Vantine, and Barbara
Shepard. Four of our Senior boys David Blatt,
Burton Wells, Ernest Dubuque, and George
White were endmen while Bernard Roque acted
as Interlocutor. During the intermission the
chorus girls went among the audience selling
fudge and made 3510.00 toward our class trip.
At the Halloweien Carnival we had two
booths. In one we had a Paddle Wheel and in
the other we had a Baseball Throw. We all had
our turns in working in either one booth or the
On November 17th the high school presented
four one-act plays. The seniors put on a play
called "High Windowv. Those in the cast were
Dorothy Dubuque, Carol Vantine, Joan Granger,
David Blatt and Ernest Dubuque. This play
won high honors but the class of '54 had the
plaque presented to them.
The Christmas Pageant was presented on two
nights, the evenings of the 21st and 22nd of
December. The Glee Club proceeded in with a
candlelight ceremony from the back of the Au-
ditorium. They sang the Seraphic Song which is
sung every Easter time at Radio City Music Hall
in New York City. Ten boys "Walked for the
Kakeii that year. This was the first time Milton
High had such an event. The Seniors who "Kake
VValked,' were George VVhite, David Blatt, Yates
Rousseau, Burton Wells, David Sweeney, and
Bernard Roque. The gym classes, both boys and
girls, gave a very nice tumbling act. David Blatt
was the only senior who took part in that act.
Under the direction of Miss Holden the Senior
Class three act play, "June Madf, went off suc-
cessfully on March 16th. The Seniors who par-
ticipated were Carol Vantine, Betty -Scribner,
Norma Duffy, Janet Fisher, Nancy Manley, Vir-
ginia Adams, Tracy Ryan, Burton VVells, George
White, Dale Laughlin, Frank Tourville, Wayne
Steady, and David Blatt.
After much planning and waiting March 24th
finally arrived. This was one of the biggest days
in our four years of high school. Most of us were
up bright and early that morning, as that was
the morning we left for New York City. The
Vermont Transit bus met us at school at 5:30 A.
M. Soon we were on our way, 28 seniors, Mr.
and Mrs. Patton, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Mayville,
Miss Swindell, Miss Kellogg and two juniors,
Wayne Lafayette and Jerome Limoge. We stop-
ped in Glens Falls for breakfast and Reinbeck
for dinner. WVe stopped at Hyde Park for an
hour after dinner and visited the late President
Roosevelt's home, museum, and library. We ar-
rived at the Hotel Piccadilly at 4:25 P. M. We
were assigned to our rooms and then we went to
a broadcast that night. Easter Sunday we went
to Church. Some of us went to Riverside Drive
and others to St. Patrick's Cathedral. That after-
noon we had a tour of Rockefeller Center includ-
ing a trip to the Observation Tower. Then in
the evening we went back to Radio City Music
Hall saw a magnificent stage show and heard the
Seraphic song which we had sung at the Christ-
mas Pageant. Monday morning we had a Down-
Town tour of the Bowery and Chinatown. In
the afternoon we went for a boat trip around
Manhattan Island. In the evening we enjoyed
a play called "Happy Timev. After the play we
were entertained with a dinner and floor show
at Wivel's Restaurant. Tuesday morning wc
-.vent to the Empire State building and shopped
through Macyis. At 2:00 that afternoon we left
for home, a tired but happy group. of students.
We chose blue and gold for our class colors,
and the yellow rose for our flower. Note how
it grows on our garden wall.
The Senior Ball was held May 30th. This
was the last big event of the year before Gradua-

ROM OUR superior height as Seniors, hav-
ing reached this point, we are not unmindful of
our past toil and do not forget those who are
coming after us and are endeavoring to follow,
distantly of course, in our footsteps. We have
truly left our "Footprints on the Sands of Timev,
but we know well that no other class can hope
to step exactly into those amazing tracks.
Some of you may be pondering mentally just
why no one can do it, but you are all wrong in
your conclusions. It is not because the tracks
are too big, it is not because they are perfectly
plain to the naked eye, it is not because they are
crooked and straggling, and it is not because they
wander aside into paths.
How our hearts swell with pride when we
consider the real reason. Do I need to put it in
words? Is it not sufficient for you to gaze in
soulful admiration upon this extraordinary class
of 1951. Is it not written upon our extraodinary
faces, all over our brachycephalic heads and
even in our graceful and commanding poses.
Let us now bring our minds to gaze on "Foot-
prints on the Sands of Timev, in the year of 1961.
I am a member of the F. B. I. Do you know
what that means?
You don,t know ? VVell, it means FOOT-
PRINTS BEING INVESTIGATED. Here on
these sands are deep impressions of footprints.
The seniors of 1951 have passed this way. They
have been making tracks, important tracks in the
last ten years. Their impressions are traced on
the sands and cannot be erased. They show that
the seniors walked here with an upward look and
a firm tread-going places. They are unwaver-
ing and true. They point toward progress and
achievement. They lead to the right places, the
true goals of accomplishment in all the fields of
activities. You know, I can tell something about
cach senior by the tracks he makes. Each ex-
presses the individual and his achievement and
what he is doing today. I see this in their foot-

First we start with the footprints of our class
Burton Wells-Burtie enjoyed New York so
much when he was there that he returned four
years later and bought a business around the cor-
ner from Hotel Piccadilly. If you should ever
go to New York, stop at the Opera Inn where
you will obtain immediate service.
Next we see Yates Rousseaufs footprints in
the sand. Following in his brothers footsteps
Yates joined the Air Force. He now is mechanic
of his brotherjs plane repair shop and is stationed
in Washington, D. C., where "Dollyv is close at
Whose prints do we have here? They look
like a nurse,s print. Oh yes, they are Claire

Allen Hospital, Claire has done well. She joined
the Air Force, and after her discharge she return-
ed and is now Supervisor of nurses at the Fanny

ceived high honors. She has now set up her own
beauty salon in the village of Grand Isle, which
has a slogan, "If your Harris-Hazy, Come to
Annieis Beauty Salonf,
David Sweeney-David is the one who really
made good in our class, for he struck upon the
bright idea of inventing what he could have
used in high school, an atomic-operated type-
writer which doesnit make mistakes.
Dorothy Dubuque-Upon graduating from
High School, Dorothy was undecided whether
she would be a teacher or bookkeeper. Her
mind was made up for her, for she now has a full
time job in the Beaupre Production Co.
Frank Toaruille-Since he had been a farmer
in his earlier years, Frank entered U. V. M.
where he took up Agricultural Engineering. He
now has a full time job keeping the Island Farms
Barbara Gonyeau-It wasnit hard for Barb,
since she had such a knack for office work, to
obtain a good position in the General Electric
Plant in Burlington. But she found her work
much more exciting when, within a few years,
Paul Bobar took a desk next to hers.
George l'Vhite-VVe hear that George could
not settle down in any one college so attended
four different ones. Finally he graduated from
the University of Maine. He is now basketball
Coach at U. V. M.
Nancy Manley-VVe received word that
Nancy attended Burlington Business College.
She didn't work very long for she soon married
a U. V. M. graduate and is keeping up his books
on their farm in Grand Isle.
Maflelaine LeClaire-N'Iadelaine attended
Wilfred Beauty Academy in Boston. From there
she went to Florida where she obtained a good
position. Now she has a husband and children
who have curly hair. Maybe it's natural!
Bernita M artin-After graduation, Bernita
entered Burlington Business College, but her
Mother decided she needed help in the store, so
Bernita went only a few months to College.
After about six months in the store Bernita got
tired of working, so she married a young farmer
and moved to South Hero. We now End her
caring for twin boys and trying to do her house-
work at the same time.
Laurette Boussin-Laurette did almost the
same as Claire, as both graduated from the
Fanny Allen Hospital. But Laurette decided to
make her future a little different from Claireis.
She is now married to Maynard, lives in Swan-
ton, and is doing part-time nursing.
Barbara Shepard-Graduating from High
School, Barbara decided to follow in her sisters,
footsteps and take up nursing at the Mary Flet-
cher Hospital in Burlington. Her studies there
helped her in caring for her children for they
often become ill while following their father
from port to port. While following her husband,
who was in the army, from port to port, Barb
took odd jobs here and there nursing.
Wayne Steady-Wayne always had the skill
for doing hair. Therefore he went to a Beauty
Culture School in New York. He now is Chief
Make-Up and Hair Artist for a large Broadway
Production in New York City.
David Blatt-He always had a hand for
making small children behave, so David attend-
ed U. V. M. for training to be an elementary
teacher. He now has a job of Principal and
teacher in Blatt's Elementary School.
Bernard Roqua-Being a lawyer was easy
for Bernard. He attended St. Michael's College
in VVinooski and then went to Harvard Law
School. Having set up his office, he is making
an attempt to settle the Case of Smith vs Iones.
Norma Duffy-Poor Normal She just couldnpt
hold back a giggle, therefore she lost her job as
secretary, for the boss always thought she was
laughing at him. She finally gave up and mar-
ried Doug. They are now settled on a farm in
Blue and Gold
Milton. Milton High School hasn't lost Normais
giggle, for if you look in the grades you will soon
see that her giggle must have been inherited.
Dale Laughlin-After three years in the Ma-
rines, Dale took over a farm in Milton so as to
support his wife and children. Since Dale al-
ways loved children, he now has five.
Ruth Villemaire-Ruth was the second dieti-
tion in our class. She received her dietetics
course at U. V. M. For her future career she de-
cided to work in a largeschool in New York. She
must have liked this future for we still find her

Tracy, was called by Uncle Sam. We hear now
that he has taken the Footsteps of many famous
Generals. He now is Supreme Commander in

TESTATOR: Senior class, we might as well ad-
mit it: TIMES UP. Our high school days are of
the past. It's time to leave this dear old school,
so it's time to read our Last Will and Testament
and distribute our gifts to the class. During our
stay here, we collected many material and in-
tangible possessions which we cannot take with
us. We would grow footsore on our march if
we were weighted with too many earthly posses-
sions. They would be a burden as We tread the
sands of time. We think it wise to dispose of our
possessions to those who will follow in our foot-
steps, namely, the juniors and other school fel-
lows. Also, there are certain concessions which
we make to the school and faculty. Therefore,
we make this Last Will and Testament:
We, the class of 1951, of Milton High School,
realizing we are setting out on the sands to make
our footprints indelible and to set examples for
future generations, do hereby, will and bequeath

debts be paid, namely the expenses of com-
mencement which have been deep impressions

notable history after we have gone.
Blue and Gold
THIRD: To the principal and teachers, we
leave our promptess and wasted time with hopes
that they may distribute them among those they
teach in the future. VVe also convey our ability
to know a good thing when we see it. As this
ability has been largely created by their instruc-
tions, we are merely returning to them their own
FOURTH: To the rising Seniors we leave our
shoes of righteousness, our high grades, and our
good times. WVe also bestow on them all our
laughs and giggles, unsolved puzzles, tardy and
absent marks, all the unchewed gtllli, apple cores
and cold lunches, all the volley, basket and base-
ball scores, all the broken jack-knives and un-
sharpened lead pencils, half-filled note books
and all other unclaimed properties of no value
FIFTH: To the rising Juniors, we leave our
timely sayings and quips, and our good disposi-
SilXTH: To the rising Sophomores, we will
our right to go barefooted and our clever tongues
SEVENTH: To the janitor, we will and be-
queath the undisputed possession of our indivi-
dual desks and bottles of ink to be at his disposal
EIGHTH: Our understanding and compre-
hension of Ancient, English and American his-
tory we consign to no-one, but leave it in the air,
to be confiscated by whosoever deserves it.

And now, letls open up the shoe box.
I have here the Shoe Box, number 29. A very
good size shoe, you must admit. You see we
have as a class a large foundation, solid, substan-
tial, so we are bound to make big impressions.
This box holds some our possessions which we
have accumulated, and now I want to give them
to the individuals who own them.

YESTERDAY GUIDES TOMORROW
By Barbara Gonyeau
"Lost Memory Found! Man Recovers
ldentity! Amnesia Victim Returns to Arms of
Red and black headlines scream forth the
glad tidings, and readers throughout a commu-
nity let out a sigh of relief. For, of all the mala-
dies that can befall mankind, none is more shock-
ing to the victim than sudden loss of memory.
VVithout a past and robbed of identity, he is the
epitome of despair.
I can think of no more dramatic illustration
of the vital part that a knowledge of the past
plays in our daily lives. VVithout it, we are as a
new-born babe dependent upon instinct, with no
experience on which to base sound iudgment, no
understanding of cause or effect, no fact on
which to guide our future. In this light, history
is not a by-product of civilization. It is a sixth
sense without which we cannot function!
Ralph VValdo Emerson has declared that 'fthe
use of history is to give value to the present hour
and its dutyf and pithier words were never
phrased. Noah Wfebster, or one of the heirs to
his magic with a dictionary, defines history as "a
narrative of eventsv and, armed with this defini-
tion, we come to see that all of us are alternately
reading and writing history every day of our
Today we are again defending our freedom
extends across our land
on a battlefield that
"from sea to shining seafp lt reaches to every
doorstep where communist propaganda in all its
insidious forms and under the most artful dis-
guises is seeking to destroy our freedom by un-
dermining our faith in the principles on which
our government was founded. How grave is the
danger of this all-out attack against us is best
told in the words of Bernard Baruch. bersonal
adviser to our presidents through six administra-
tions: "If we lose, we lose foreverf,
KVe can best combat this attempt to destroy
our freedom by gaining from our American his-
tory a clear understanding of the principles on
which our government was founded, by learn-
ing of the long struggle, the privations and hard-
ships that had to be endured before those prin-
ciples could be established. Then we will have
a true appreciation of the freedom we enioy, and
we will be of a firm mind to defend it. And only
the staunchest firmness will match the fanatical
determination of the plotters who seek to under-
So let us turn to the history of the United
States as the effective antidote for the poison of
communist propaganda. And while we are
about it, letis read again the Declaration of In-
dependence and the Constitution of the United
States to remind ourselves that "All men are
created equal, that they are endowed by their
Creator with certain inalienable rights, that
among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit
of Happinessf, Letps not wait until our apprecia-
tion of these inalienable rights is tempered by
the despair of losing them. Letis bear in mind
that once again Uthese are the times that try
menis soulsf, and that the enemy who would des-
troy those rights is one who denies the very exis-
tence of the soul.
Thomas Paine's prophetic words should be
written today across the blackboards of every
schoolroom in our country. Then we need not
fear that these propaganda attacks will ever sub-
ject us to the humiliation of having our speech
dictated by the group of ruthless political plot-
ters whose sole aim is power for themselves and
slavery for the rest of the world. So it is that
the events of yesterday and today will guide to-
morrow. Therefore we need a knowledge not
only of the past but we need to give our best to

E, THE graduating class of 1951, welcome
you here tonight to our Commencement exer-
cises. We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks
to our parents who have undergone various
sacrifices to start us on the road to success. We
wish to thank our teachers for the patience and
encouragement they have given us. We wish to
thank the School Board for providing us with a
varied program of studies. Last of all, we thank
our friends who have been good in helping all
of us to complete our twelve years of school.
As we leave this school tonight we become a
part of the future of tomorrow. VVhat this future
will be depends largely upon what we make it.
As citizens of this country we will do our utmost
toward making the best possible world.
Now let us look back to our school and one
important subject that we have studied-namely
Sociology. People who have never been to school
and also many of those who have been, never
stop to realize that man is custodian of culture.
This, from a sociological sense means, civiliza-
tion or the man-made environment.
We are influenced at all times by a culture
environment which is made up of material and
non-material traits. Many people never stop to
think of its consistency. VV e have many culture
traits which have been handed down to us from
other generations and we just carry them on
without the slightest idea of what they are and
how they came about. A man tipping his hat,
whenever he meets a woman, is a custom which
is performed but many do not realize that it was
once customary for a knight in armor to raise
his visor when speaking to a lady, as an act of
courtesy. Customs ought to be the outgrowth
of intelligence and of the careful planning of
what is best for society rather than the chance
by-products of trial and error.
Man alone is a culture-builder because he
has four distinct physical advantages which help
to accomplish this. He has an,upright position,
free hands, a vocal apparatus, and an excellent

brain structure. With these advantages man
is superior to animal.
Every individual acquires a culture heritage
as he grows up. Man profits through this as it
improves. He brings all the past to bear upon
his present, and will bring the present to bear
upon his future. Each generation has the ad-
vantages of what the previous generations learn-
ed, because of the power which man has to
teach his offspring the things that have been
learned through trial and error. Children fall
heir to the methods, to the tools, to the religious
beliefs, and to the forms of social organization
which have been developed. Man is so de-
pendent upon his culture heritage that were it
taken from him, he would be left almost as help-
less as an infant.
People of other races seem peculiar to us be-
cause different surroundings make different
human beings of us, as far as personality traits
and behavior patterns are concerned. We often
think of the Chinaman as being peculiar be-
cause he uses chopsticks, without realizing that
he thinks we are peculiar using knives and forks.
The reason for this is that people fail to appre-
ciate the background of those from other en-
The culture environment in which one grows
up is mastered naturally and without too much
effort, but learning to live in a new environment
is a more difficult problem.
As time goes on, our culture changes, and we
adopt new traits which spread rapidly in the
United States. As these change, our personality
must be adjusted also.
It has no doubt become clear that man is
first of all a social creature, depending for his
very life and growth upon others. It is evident
also, that he is dependent upon the culture ac-
cumulated by societies past and present.
As we leave this school tonight we will take
over by doing our part in carrying on the culture
traits and trying to make our world a better one
in which to live.

but basketball is not all win and no lose. This
year was just the lower part of the swing of the

fought but losing games. However, our girls'
team enjoyed success in other ways besides Win-
ning. The cooperation of the girls and the sports-

nition of the importance of historical movements
upon literature. In the study of drama, poetry,
novel, essays and short stories the importance of
character development is stressed. Oral and
Written reports are an integral part of this course
English IV-English literature from Chaucer
to the twentieth century is studied in detail. An
attempt is made to give the student a concep-
tion ot the changes in literature as the result of
social. economic. and political changes in the
lite of a people. An intensive rather than ex-
tensive course of study is emphasized.

No attempt is made to arbitrarily divide the
curriculum into "Courses,' so-called, calling one
the college preparatory course, another the com-
mercial, or another by some other name. Ou the
contrary, it is our purpose to leave the pupil as
unhampered as possible.
Certain subjects are required of all pupils.
Aside from these, pupils are given wide free-
dom of choice among studies called 'electiyesf
All students who expect to enter college, how-
ever, must make a selection from those electives
which are preceded by an asterick CU except
that for some colleges, courses in Latin are not
required though it is highly desirable. Either
two years of Latin or two years of French are
In cases where any doubt exists in the minds
of parents or pupils as to subjects to be chosen,
advice should be sought from the office. When-
ever it becomes evident that a pupil has made
a mistake in the choice of his studies, an at-
tempt will be made to remedy the difficulty.
Blue and Gold
Algebra I-The aim of this course is to teach
the language and the science of the simple equa-
tion, to emphasize the importance of the equa-
tion and its application through the solution of
Plane Geometry-The aims of this course are
to teach the pupils to reason rather than to ac-
cept statements as true without proof, to use
geometric tools accurately in simple construc-
toin and show their practical application.
Algebra II-This isa review of elementary
algebra plus a sufficient amount of advanced
material to prepare the pupils for college.
The aims of this course are flj To present
mathematics as a practical subject arising from
the life situations of ordinary people, f2j To
give an insight into mathematical principles
necessary to understand our increasingly com-
plicated environment, To provide an ex-
ploratory course in mathematics.
Students who have a fairly good average in
their English courses and who are planning on
attending college should fulfill the usual require-
ments of two fat leastj years of foreign lan-
guage. The two year language requirement must
be made up of two years of the same language.
Latin I-lt is the purpose of this course to
endow the student with the following: Clj The
fundamentals of latin grammar to permit the
student to continue Latin II, 12D A correspond-
ing knowledge of English grammar, An ac-
quaintance with derivatives and related Latin
words, Q41 Sentence writing and translation of
Latin, 155 The meaning of a word in its sur-
rounding context, Q65 The historical and cul-
tural material available in Latin I and UQ An
acquaintance with mythological material.
Latin II-The aims set up for the first year
are continued and enlarged upon, with more
intensified study. The studentis power to trans-
late should become increased. There is con-
tinued opportunity to become acquainted with
the history of Rome. Caesar proper is not en-
countered until late in the year and then in
French I--To as great a degree as possible,
the beginning student in French will be de-
veloped to understand the spoken word, to
speak it, to read it, and to write it. For the most
part the reading deals with modern French life.
The course tends to break down the studentis
shyness and self-reserve by having him read and
speak French aloud. Occasionally dictation in
French is given and corrected by the pupil that
he may better comprehend his weaknesses.
French II-A student should have a C aver-
age to continue in French II. For the majority
of the students this will be the extent of their
French course. Consequently, the skills attain-
ed during French I are incorporated into French
II but more intensely. Besides a completion of
French grammar, one or more interesting works
General S c r e n c e-The composition and
changes in matter, control and use of fire and
heat, cause and prevention of disease, food,
our water supply, weather, harnessing or energy,
use of machines, electricity, and light, methods
of communication, and transportation, the
heavens, the earth's surface, and plant life are
topics generally studied.
Biology-A course designed to give a more
thorough systematic knowledge of the living
things on this planet. Much emphasis is placed
on the relationship between hitherto unfamiliar
organisms and everyday routine of life.
Physics-The course helps to develop the
ability to observe facts accurately, to record in
an orderly fashion the data obtained, to set up
apparatus correctly and expeditiously, to make
quantative measurements, which may be used
to solve a physical problem and most of all, to
make accurate computations and to state results
in good English and in readable form.
Chemistry-This science deals chiefly with
the changes in the composition of matter, the
practical application of chemistry to everyday
life, human health, in the home, in industry, its
contribution to society and the progress of
civilization, its relation to plant and animal life,
all are stressed. Mathematical solutions to
chemical problems are required. Laboratory
periods for student experimentation average two
periods per week.
