This company came from all the lands around, from Grand Isle, North Hero, South Hero, Georgia, and Colchester, because they had wanted to join this good company who had start- ed out to obtain a high school education. Soon we reached the entrance of a great dark woods, known as Freshman Lands. We wandered through the trees with fear and trembling and wished we could turn back or find a new way out. After stumbling about in the dark and brushing against the huge trees of algebra, we found ourselves hopelessly tangled in the brambles of English and science. A cold wind scattered leaves of discouragement upon us in the form of flunks and demerits, and we were knocked down by the snubs of the upperclass- man. Frankly we decided to elect class officers to boost our morale. Judith Davis was elected President, Betty Bushey, Vice-President, Jacque- line Atwood, Secretary, and Jean Cabree, Trea- surer. Along with many of us being lost in these dark woods we were badly frightened by many ghosts, which we found out later were merely teachers, tardy marks, and Sophomores. For nine long months we remained lost in this dark woods. . OVER THE RIVER Suddenly we realized we had reached a broad and swift flowing river. It was the golden river of our sophomore year. We gaily and bravely went aboard our good ship, Soph-ship. Judy Davis was the captain, and she directed the class activities on the way across, Allen Beaupre was our Pilot, and he assisted in directing the crew, Ensign LeClaire kept the records, and Leo Pid- numuuuu num mmnuuuuuuul num mumumnnu. geon was the goodmate looking out for sand bars and snags of school life. Below in the ship, all the sophomores were passengers who were busy with their daily duties, studying during the day. Late in the day they often came on deck to take exercises. The first thing we did this year was to initiate the incoming freshmen, although in the evening we made up for everything bad we had done to them by presenting them a reception. After this everything was smooth until the end of October when we took part in the annual Hal- lowe'en Carnival, which turned out to be quite a success. The minstrel show was held in November and our class was again represented in both Glee Club and the show. The one-act play this year was "Triumph in Ashes", with Judy, Charlotte, Shirley Breault, Mary and Ellen Beaupre and Paul Robar taking art. P In December, some of us took part in the Christmas Cantata which was presented on the 21st and 22nd, We closed our year's activities with the Ver- mont Music Festival. Members from our class taking part in All-State Band were Betty Bushey, Judy Davis and Jean Cabree. TH RO UGH THE MEADOW As soon as we reached the shore, we saw a lovely meadow before us, the meadow of Junior- land. A long road wound like a silver ribbon across the land. We set out happily on the road because we were nearer our goal, High School Education. With the goal ahead, we went wheeling along. We hurried to elect our officers! Florence Phillips was elected President, Judith Davis, Vice-President, Doris LeClaire, Secretary, Roger Conyeau, Treasurer, and Bernard King and Irma Lombard were elected to serve on the Blue and Gold 5 Student Council. Miss Kellogg was our class sponsor. As we wheeled along we found there were many rugged stones and rough places in our way, like laboratory experiments, sociology, and American Literature, but we managed. At the beginning of our junior year, early in September, we all received our class rings. The Hallowe'en Carnival was again held in October, we had the "Salt and Peppern wheel and the "Baseball Throw". In November, many of us took part in the annual Minstrel Show. The Juniors taking part in it were: Betty Bushey, Shirley Breault, Judith Davis, Doris LeClaire, Mary Beaupre, and Charlotte Bluto. On October 26, the Juniors presented a one- act play, "None So Blindv directed by Miss Kel- logg. The characters were Betty Bushey, Shirley Breault, Judith Davis, Doris LeClaire, Allen Beaupre, Bernard King, Leo Pidgeon, Robert Limoge and Paul Dingler. Judith Davis and Constance Jackson attend- ed Girls, State. Paul Dingler and Leo Pidgeon attended Boys, State. Bernard King was chosen by the seniors for Class Marshal. Basketball started in November. From the Ju11ior Class of Girls, there were Doris LeClaire and Shirley Johnson on the team. Boys were Bernard King, Allen Beaupre, Robert Limoge, Douglas King and Leo Pidgeon. Shirley Johnson and Douglas King were on the All-Tournament Team. Both boys and girls won the class tourn- ament. The last of April baseball started. Leo Pid- geon, Robert Limoge, Allen Beaupre and Bern- ard King were players. In May, We had the Music Festival. Betty Bushey and Judith Davis were in All State Band. Florence Phillips, Mary Beaupre, Lois Russell and Leo Pidgeon were in All-State Chorus. And at last we reached the roadis end, and we came to a beautiful mountain. It was awe-in- spiring, and we stood gazing upward at it en- tranced with its beauty and possibilities, wonder- ing what it was. Definitely and ultimately, we had come to the end of Juniorland. SKYLINE DRIVE Just as in a dream, we found ourselves on the top of this wonderful mountain, On The Skyline Drive, Seniorland. We were at the top of our high school journey. An exalted position, I'l1 assure you. The officers chosen for the year were: President, Judith Davis, Vice-President, Leo Pidgeon, Secretary, Doris LeClaire, Treasur- er, Shirley Johnson. The two members chosen to represent the student council were Connie Jackson and Maurice Roussin. While we spent nine months in this high at- mosphere on the mountain, we won many honors. Here are the activities of the year: We started off by selling magazines. Profits were 8318.26 Irma Lombard sold the greatest number. On October 8, we had a Senior hop with Al Cole's orchestra for music. At the Hallowe'en Carni- val, we took care of the cider mill and the paddle wheel. Next came the Senior Play, "Spring F every on October 24. Those taking part were Betty Bushey, Florence Phillips, Constance Jack- son, Judith Davis, Shirley Breault, Doris Le- Claire, Leo Pidgeon, Allen Beaupre, Bernard King, Paul Dingler, Maurice Roussin and Robert Limoge. We all had various parts in the Minstrel Show which was held November 20 and 21 and the Christmas Pageant held December 19. Then came the long awaited New York Trip. We left at 5:30 a.m. on April 6, accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Morris, Mr. and Mrs. Mayville, Mr. Patton, Miss Meyers, Miss Kennedy, and Miss Stanley. We also took Bernard Smith as our class marshal. We all had a wonderful time. In May, Betty Bushey was chosen for All- State Orchestra, Judith Davis and Jean Cabree All-State Band, and Leo Pidgeon and Florence for All-State Chorus. Now, we come to the final week of our Sky- line Drive. What lies beyond depends on each and everyone of us.

At New York City we find that Allen Beaupre, who was once the quiet boy in the class, now is assistant producer of the show in Radio City Music Hall. After he graduated he went there and acquired a job as an usher. When he was thirty he had graduated to stage manager. Then later Allen became assistant producer. We can see that Allen will be top producer any day now. After Lois Russell graduated from Milton High, she decided to become a waitress in a prominent Brattleboro hotel. It was here that she married her high school sweetheart. He was a very good chef so they decided to start a hotel of their own. Lois and Ray have come home every year for the Alumni Banquet. At the last Banquet, Lois said that she and her husband ex- pect to build a branch hotel soon. Since Milton has grown in size, they intend to build one here and return to their home town to live. We found Shirley Breault in Cuba. You see, she travels a lot since she married that certain sailor. When he receives his discharge they will build a new home in South Hero. They will also have full interest in Breau1t's Beacon Market. After Bernard King graduated from Milton High he entered the United States Air Force. He served three years, then when he received his honorable discharge, he started work for General Electric. He now has a wonderful wife, who originally came from South Hero. He and his wife are residing in Milton. Bernard isn,t the noisy, carefree boy he was in high school nowg he has settled into a quiet home-loving husband. We find Irma Lombard has been in Chicago working for a large law firm. Irma went to Al- bany Business College after graduating from Milton High. She liked her work very much and planned to make a life career of it, but she changed her mind and now resides in Milton with her charming family. 5 uuunInnInI1nnmnnnnnmmmu nlnuluununig nunIIImmmmumnmmm llumummmmu11nu u in un nu umnnnnmmm. We find that Paul Dingler joined the Marines after he got out of school. He enrolled in the police squadron. He is now out of the Marines and is one of the outstanding detectives in New York City. Recently he cracked a large crime syndicate, something no one has been able to do for some time. We see Judith Davis went to college to study to become a good secretary. After she got out of college, she became the indispensible private secretary for a well-known politician in Wash- ington, D. C. She takes trips all over the country and often makes speeches at S300-a plate ban- quets. We see Iean Gabree in Hollywood after she graduated from high school. After she arrived in Hollywood she got bit parts in a movie. She has now made a few very good musicals. She can currently be seen in her latest film, "Life With My Husbandsf' After Connie jackson graduated, she organ- ized a 4-H club with which she had great suc- cess. Her club soon rated highest in the state. After a few years that same friend who furnished transportation to the members of the Senior Play became Connie's permanent chauffeur. We see that Doris LeClaire became a very efficient secretary in an insurance company. After working there a few years, she accepted a permanent position as a homemaker on a nice little farm in Georgia, Vermont. She also keeps her husband's books for him. We find that after graduating from Milton High School, Roger Gonyeaa entered the army and after serving twelve years, he received an honorable discharge. Then he went into farm- ing. When he was approaching thirty years old he became engaged to a Burlington girl, whom he knew when he was in high school. We see that last week they were married. Blue and Gold 7 We find that Joyce Scribner went to New York City and took a job as maid at the Hotel Picca- dilly. After meeting her high school boyfriend, Jim, who was a bellhop at the hotel, she decided to marry. They have been married for about twelve years and are both employed at the Hotel Piccadilly. After Charlotte Bluto graduated from High School, she attended Business College. She was such a remarkable student that she was soon of- fered a teaching position there. She accepted it, but after a few years farm life in Colchester seemed much more alluring. When June Hayes was in high school, she thought she wanted to be a telephone operator, but a life of travel was more enticing. She join- ed the Women's Air Force and enjoyed it so much that she has made it a career and is now stationed in the South Seas at Pago Pago. After Florence Phillips graduated, Florence entered nurses' training. She put in many hard years of study and experience, and finally, was rewarded by making a great name for herself in this Held. She spent some years as a Navy nurse, but has recently decided that one sailor needs her undivided attention. After Leo Piclgeon graduated from high school, he entered the Army. He served his four years and then decided to settle down. After arriving in Milton, he found his girl hadn't waited for him. He now is a wealthy bachelor in Grand isle, since he has a monopoly on all the apple or- chards in the county. WVhen Robert Limoge graduated, he went to work for his father, but this didn't work out so well since Bob was supposed to be working in Georgia, but was spending most of his time in Milton. This was soon settled because Uncle Sam put Bob to work for a while. After spend- ing a few years in the service, he got out and bought himself a farm. He married his high school sweetheart and spent the rest of his days happily listening to the cows and the saxophone. When Maurice Roussin graduated, he headed back to New York after being so impressed by the city on the class trip. Maurice went to a Mechanical Engineering School for two years, and then Uncle Sam needed his service for a while. After returning from the service, Maurice took up where he had left off in his studies. He later passed the course with high honors. Now he has become one of the world's leading mech- anical engineers. At first, Betty Bushey thought she would go on to college and make herself one of the lead- ing women of the state but little persuasion from a farmer boy changed her mind. For a few years, Betty played saxophone in one of the lead- ing orchestras in the state. Now Betty, who always wanted to have many farm animals, has realized her heart's desire. After graduation from high school, Shirley johnson joined a famous girls, basketball team and toured the United States and the rest of the world. A few years later, Shirley came to be known as one of the great women athletes. After quite a bit of roaming around, Shirley finally settled down and married a 1952 graduate of Milton High. JEAN C. CABRPIE Lois E. RUSSELL FLORENCE H. PHILLIPS LEO H. PIDGEON Y Blue and Gold President 3 Address 6cTHE TRAILS9' Classmates, we find ourselves here on this mountain peak of our lives, The Skyline Drive. In our dreams and in reality we are up in the sky because being a senior is sublime, something not of this earth. From this exalted place, we can look down on the years of the past, our former years in high school. Truly we are among the rosy tinted clouds of our dreams. A high school education has elevated us. Actually we have climbed many feet above the level of the unlearned and untrained. We have grown, relatively, in stature and wisdom. In our climbing, we have breathed the fresh air of new truths and doctrines and principles, con- stituting a better way of living. We have elevated our minds-minds that can distinguish between the rights and wrongs in our national and social situations. And here we have a World View. From this point, we have a panoramic view of opportunities and adventures waiting, spread out like an open map before us, challenging us to seek and find and possess. It's a wonderful view, the world at our feet! As seniors we feeluthat we can achieve and accomplish almost any- thing. And perhaps we can. The picture before us is heroically and boldly etched to attract us. We like this world view. It is inspiring. And then, classmates,'tlJ1ere are trails. Yes, we have reached this high elevation, and we have this inspiring view of the world from the Skyline Drive, but we cannot linger here contentedly, merely satisfying ourselves with what has been and with what is. We must go forward with our elevation and our view. We must use our training and our knowledge. Do you see what I see? Look down yonder. Trails-trails, many of them, twenty. Twenty trails winding about all through the valleys and over the hills below us, going in all directions. These trails wind their ways into all the professions and trades and occupations known to man. Each of you must take one of these trails. Each has a different destination and a different goal at the end. One trail is yours -your pilgrimage, your endeavor to live a good and useful life in this world down below our Skyline Drive. May you each find happiness as you make your way down your own long, long trail. And now, in closing, I would like to extend the sincerest thanks of the Class of 1953 to parents, teachers and friends, who have helped us through these past four years of high school. Without you the climb to our Skyline Drive would have been even rougher.

REWARD 1. To our faculty, we hereby will and bequeath all the amazing knowledge and start- ling information that we have furnished them from time to time in our various examination papers. We know that much we have impart- ed to them in this way must have been entirely new to them, as well as to all the teachers and students everywhere. If the faculty see fit, they are hereby authorized to give out such of this information to the world as they may feel the world is ready to receive. This, of course, is left entirely to their personal discretion. REWAHD 2. To the Junior class, we give and be- queath all such boys as were not able to keep pace with such brilliant girls as compose the majority of our class, trusting that the junior girls may be able to hold firmly to them and steer them, next year, through the gates of Commencement. REWARD 3. To the Sophomore class, we will and bequeath any stubs of pencils, erasers, or scraps of paper that we may inadvertently leave behind us in the excitement and haste of gathering up our cherished treasures for the last time. May they feel free to use them, and sense, perhaps, that they may, in some mystic way, gather some of our great knowledge from them. ltizwanu 4. To the Freshman class, we will and bequeath any overlooked cuds of gum we may have left adhering to the underside of desks, bauisters, assembly seats or any likely or unlikely places. VVe have sometimes had to rid ourselves of these in too much haste to be able to pick and chose the most desirable means of disposal. REWAHD 5. To the following, we make single bequests : 1. To Theresa Jordan, we will a new Olds- mobile so that she can make frequent trips to the Islands instead of meeting johnny at the dance. 2.

To Iames Russell, we will the privilege of opening a near-by restaurant in town at any hour of the morning that he chooses. 21. To Richard M iner, we leave a high school diploma so that he can get out of school a year earlier to start his cabin business. 22.

Our little boat is resting at the bend in the stream. We have reached the Commencement, or turning point in the deep and unknown channels of life. We are pausing here at the bend to bid farewell, and to muster our strength for the work ahead. The voyage of life has many windings and turnings, and it is sometimes difficult to realize just how many more obstacles we must face. As we row through the waters, it seems like a long course to follow, never knowing what is around the next bend. We are frequently tempted to let our little boat drift wheresoever it may. It is pleasant to pause here at the bending of the stream, and recall the calmness of the school- ripples through which we have been rowing. We cannot linger here long, however, for already the noise and roar of life's larger waters are call- ing us. We know that we must row ahead out of the peaceful, shallow current of our young life, where we have been so ably guided, and pull hard through the deeper and rougher channels of future life. Tonight marks the end of formal schooling for some, while for others it is just a pause before going on to a higher education at college. In the former case, it does not mean that the devel- oping of the mind through learning must stop. We must keep alive the urge to learn and never become so contented that we consider ourselves fully educated. For those of us that are going on to college, we should only have thanks in our hearts for those who have made this possible. Before we leave these protective portals to- night, we wish to thank our parents, guardians and friends. For many happy years, our parents and teachers have carefully sheltered us from adverse wind. They have warned us of the evil rocks and shoals or tangle of sea-weed that we will be sure to meet in our onward course. If they had not given us this guidance, our start on the voyage of life might have been saddened by many disasters. We want you to know how much we appreciate your loving thoughtfulness before we sail onward to the sea of larger life awaiting us. And thus classmates, we linger at the bend of the stream-the end of our course. So far, we have pursued our course together, but now we must row forth alone into the deeper chan- nels to come. Let us, as the billows of life force us apart, keep our Blue and Gold ever flying at the masthead. We want to face these deeper channels bravely and boldly. We want to hold our principles and honor high. With the help of our parents and friends, we feel quite capable of accomplishing all the tasks that we shall meet. YVe will show the world as we step out into its fields of endeavor that we are the materials of which the best citizens and truest patriots are made. . c t - J-ss--- '54 ,We cj! 'M-ixij-f4 2391 j Blue and Gold 15 AL T A T UR Y BY Friends, it is my privilege to welcome you here tonight to see us graduate. I am very grate- ful for this honor given me. It is a great pleasure for us to see you here and to know that you care enough to come and see us embark in that world in which you are veterans. We hope you will be as happy to see us join you outside our nar- row walls as we are to do it. We have enjoyed high school but know that life is not static. There are more experiences awaiting us. To thine own self be true, and it must follow as night the day. Thou cansit not then be false to any man! What straight forward and worthy ad- vice that is! Shakespeare gave that advice to his son. Surely advice from such a great man to his son might well be worth while for us to consider. Can there be any more worthy advice for a high school graduate? In my opinion there canit be. Let us go into the subject a little. just what does this mean? Of course, it will not mean just the same to everyone and might not even to any two of you, but I think it probably would bring to each some measure of self-confidence. How often we plan to do something which we know we should do and find ourselves influ- enced otherwise by a friend who cannot know how much it means to us that we follow our con- science! That is not being true to ourselves is it? A little later we begin to think of the job which ought to be all done-maybe it is a bed- room which needs cleaning or an apology which should have been made-whatever it is, it both- ers our conscience and brings our irritable side foremost. We snap at a friend and hurt his feelings. One cross word may bother him more than we know-maybe just enough to put him too into a vile mood. What a succession of in- stances could occur. This is just one example and may wander a bit, but think-if in the first place we had kept our own council-all that might have been omitted. Isnit it better, if we have convictions and believe them to be good and sound, to follow them and not let a chance word of a friend or acquaintance lead us astray. Faith in oneis self is the root of all other faiths. The lack of it can paralyze a life. Of course, it is natural to have nervous moments. Everyone who has spoken in public knows the panic that occurs just before the occasion, and we are told that the best actors are those who are most nervous before the curtain goes up. There is always the fear that lines will be forgotten, that something will go wrong, and yet the play goes on, usually without a hitch. The same preliminary lack of confidence attends accomp- lishment known to man. But if we all succumb- ed to such misgivings, nothing would ever be done. The best way is to forget doubts and set about the task in hand. If you are doing your best, you will not have time to worry about failure. What is more necessary to a human being than self-respect and how can any person have self-respect unless he is true to himself and his fellow men. Only if we keep our morals high, our minds clean and our brains at work, can we respect ourselvesg only if we respect ourselves can we respect others. Without respect for others, how can we live with them happily and usefully on this earth. "To thine own self be true-Thou cans't not then be false to any mann. This seems to me im- portant advice to follow as we begin our lives outside the protecting walls of school. Now we must meet our problems by ourselves without the kindliness and guidance of our parents and teachers always at hand. Following this advice of Shakespeare, we might be a little less apt to go astray. ALLEN ERWIN BEAUPRE KCB0pe7, GENERAL COURSE Allen plans to enter General Electric Trainees' program this fall.

H U Y E' iiiiiitiillll We didn't have a very spectacular season this year, but a good time was had by all. We played hard games, but when the final score was tallied, it often appeared that the opposing team had found our little weaknesses and capitalized upon them. All members of the team received individual trophies for the effort they put into playing to make it as good a season as possible. The coaching was handled by Mr. Patton and Mr. Morris with the assistance of Bernard Lareau and Alden Iones as managers. Four members of the team are graduating this year. They are Allen Beaupre, Leo Pidgeon, Bernard King and Maurice Boussin. A Banquet was held for the teams at the Uni- ted Church a short time after the season was over. It was sponsored by the P. T. A. and was appreciated very much by the players. LEO PIDGI-:oN M H S Last fall we had a Soccer team with Mr. Patton as coach. WVe played four games, three of which we tied and one we lost. The boys on the team were: Allen Beaupre, Leo Pidgeon, Maur- ice lloussin, Peter Cadreact. llonald Boudreau, Lee Patno, Albert Parker, Bernard Lareau, Alden Jones, Bernard Smith, Leon Breault, Warren White, Lawrence Waite, Wayne Barrows, Alton Lombard, James Manley, Raymond Limoge and Burton Sargent.

This year we were again invited to take part in the liichford Invitation Tournament, where Shirley johnson was chosen on the All-Tourna- ment Team. Our Basketball Banquet, put on by the P.T.A. was held at the United Church. Buck Hard, Burlington IIigh's Basketball coach, was our speaker, and we all had a very enjoyable evening. The Class Tournaments were held during noon hours this winter. with the juniors carrying off most of the victories followed by the Sopho- mores.

Plays, short stories. poetry. essays and novels arc analyzed for construction and appreciation. There is an emphasis upon graunnar in oral and Written re- ports. Iinglislz Ill-The student in lCuglish Ill gains a detailed knowledge and understanding of .-Xmeriean literature from Colonial days to the 20th Century. XVriters who were merely names on a title page hccoine a reality through a recog- 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 of study. Er1gli.s'll IV-English literature from Chaucer to the twentieth century is studied in detail. An attempt is made to give the student a concep- tion of the changes in literature as the result of social, economic, and political changes in the life of a people. An intensive rather than extensive course ol' study is emphasized.

Sociology and United States History are required for raduation. Civics and Ilome Economics CGirlsl are required as Freshman or Sophomore subjects. Glee Club, Band, Physical Education and Music Appreciation are offered to both girls and boys for which one-half credit is received. Subjects preceded by an f'l receive credit for college entrance. Those preceded by a ffl dagger are essential to sound business training. 5 H ' 'I 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. On 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 freedom of choice among studies called 'electives'. All students who expect to enter college, however, must make a selection from those electives which are preceded by an asterisk UD 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 essential. 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 attempt will be made to remedy the difficulty. 34 Blue and Gold fllathematics Department 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 practical problems. 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 constmc- tion and show their practical application. Algebra II-This is a review of elementary algebra plus a sufficient amount of advanced material to prepare the pupils for college. GENERAL MATHEMATICS The aims of this course are: C11 To present mathematics as a practical subject arising from the life situations of ordinary people, C21 To give an insight into mathematical principles necessary to understand our increasingly compli- cated environmentg QSQ To provide an explora- tory course in mathematics. Language Department Students who have a fairly good average in English may elect a language course. Those who are planning to enroll in college or nurses' train- ing should take two years of one language to ful- fill the requirements of those institutions. Latin I-lt is the purpose of this course to endow the student with the following: flj The fundamentals of Latin grammar to permit the student to continue Latin Ilg 12D A correspond- ing knowledge of English grammar, QSJ An acquaintance with derivatives and related Latin words, f4Q Sentence writing and translation of Lating f5j The meaning of a word in its sur- rounding contextg CGD The historical and cul- tural material available in Latin I, and 17D An acquaintance with mythological material. Latin II-The aims set up for the first year are continued and enlarged upon, with more in- tensified study. The studentls power to translate should become increased. There is continued opportunity to become acquainted with the his- tory of Rome. Caesar proper is not encountered until late in the year and then in simplified form. French-A study of this language aims at giving the pupil an understanding of the French way of life and an appreciation of the contribu- tions of France to the modern world and in part- icular to Amercian life and culture. In the first year of study emphasis is placed on oral French along with those fundamentals of grammar which are necessary to make it possible to carry on simple conversations. An average of C must be obtained in French I to continue with French II. In the second year the main emphasis is on reading French culmin- ating in the translation of a French novel. Science Department General S c i e n c e-The composition and changes in matter, control and use of fire and heat, cause and prevention of diseaseg food, our water supply, weather, harnessing our energy, use of machines, electricity and light, methods of communication, and transportation, the heav- ens, the earthis 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 quantitive 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 contributions to society, to plant and animal life, all are stressed. Mathematical solutions to chem- ical problems are required. Laboratory periods for student experimentation average two periods per week. Blue and Gold 85 Social Sczence Department Civics-This course deals with the meaning of American democracy, the major problems of our government, and the obligations of the citi- ZCHS. Vocations-This course is given to help young people to understand the workers of the world and the kinds of work they do. When the right time comes, the pupils will need to make their own choice of work, to decide how they are going to earn their living and how they are going to prepare for success in the call- ing they have chosen. Sociology and Problems of American Democ- racy-Sociology concerns itself with problems of modern social living and how these problems are being solved by our democratic system of government. World History-The course attempts to give an understanding of how our present civilization developed from the past and what the different ages and peoples have contributed to the present. United States History-The objective of this course is to furnish a background of ideals, strug- gles, victories, failures, and compromises Which, viewed objectively, impress our country, force- fully and favorably on each high school student. Home Economics Department Home Economics is required of all girls in grades 7, 8, and 9. There is an advanced course which can be elected by upperclass girls. This year, for the first time, boys could take Home Economics. This class met twice during the band period. The boys made chefis aprons, sport shirts, and learned how to care for a sew- ing machine. They proved that boys, as well as girls, can be good cooks. The Freshmen studied units on good groom- ing, getting along with others, textiles, clothing construction, nutrition, and meal planning and service. In addition to these units, the advanced class studied interior decorating and caring for children. This class was responsible for making twenty-three new choir robes for the glee club. They also rearranged the Home Economics room, so that we now have a separate kitchen and a classroom with a family living center. Commercial Department Shorthand I-Aims: to train students to read shorthand notes fluently and to transcribe them accurately, to develop habits which make for efficiency in taking dictation and to build up a vocabulary usable at the rate of about 80 words a minute. Bookkeeping-Aims: to teach the elementary principles of accounting and routine of book- keeping, and to develop an appreciation of busi- ness situations and problems, sole proprietorship and partnership. Typewriting I-The objective of the course is: mastery of the keyboard with the formation of correct habits and techniques which will en- able the student to type accurately at the rate of forty words per minute. The various letter forms are studied with special emphasis on attractive placement. This includes carbon copies and en- velopes. Much time is devoted to personal typ- ing. Typewriting II-Objective: The ability to type accurately at the rate of fifty words per minute and set up attractively the following: manuscript typing, copying from rough draft, payroll, bills, invoices, statements, tabulations, and other business forms. Some time is spent in cutting stensils and instructions are given in the use of the duplication machine. junior Business Training-The objectives of this course are: to provide a background of eco- nomic education such as should precede any vo- cational training and to lay a firm foundation for the achievement of economic security. Ofice Practice--This course provides inten- sive pre-employment training. The objectives are Cll to aid the student in mastering office skills such as filing, duplicating, keeping payroll records, and operating calculating machines and Q25 to develop the personal qualities and traits that are essential for success in a business office. Shop This is a course in woodworking, using com- mon tools, power equipment and lathe. 36 gl Blue and Gold General Information Admission - Any pupil having graduated from the eighth grade is admitted to the high school. Other pupils are admitted upon presen- tation of an officially signed statement of proof that equivalent work has been completed. Tuition-All students whose residence is out- side the School District are charged tuition of 95225.00 for year 1953-54. If a pupil lives in a Vermont town which does not maintain a high school, his home district is legally obligated to pay this fee. Marking System-The marking system is a standard one used by most high schools. A Q92-1001 excellent workg B Q85-92D very good Workg C 177-855 good workg D C70-775 poor workg F Cbelow 701 no re-examination given. Report Cards are sent home six times each year for parents' examination. While the teachers and principal appreciate the prevailing good will and cooperation of the parents, the following suggestions may help in keeping cut' scholarship standing high: Good attendance is fundamentally necessary for a successful school. Satisfactory work in the high school requires regular home study on the part of the average student. Parents and other adults are welcome at the school at all times. We invite any intelligent and sympathetic criticism. Compliments of THE I. G. A.
