President It was my privilege to be chosen president of the Associated Student Body of Modesto Union Academy for the first semester. It is here that I wish to extend my appre- ciation to a fine office staff, the sponsor-Mr. Schwindt-, faculty and especially the student body as a whole. I am sure as God looked down on our meetings, parties, and assemblies He was very much pleased with the attitude of all. We all know a crisis is coming in the last days. We here at Modesto Union Acad- emy have discovered and learned many things that will make us stand true tothe ideals of Christ. Many will leave this year, including myself, and I am sure they will always look back at good old M.U.A. as a place of true Christian association, Ronald Marxmiller IRVING LOGAN 2nd Semester A.S.B. President The school spirit of M.U.A. is greatly promoted by the Student Association. The second semester has proved no exception to this statement. The Student Association serves to draw the students together, and to bring out their talents, They were given a chance to do this in the Amateur Hour, which was the first one put on at M.U.A. Other activities included several chapel pro- grams and the annual spring picnic. With the loyal support and cooperation of each student, we bring this successful year to a close, thanking all for their part. Irving Logan QND SEMESTER ASB.

Many activities were planned for the year and the girls had some wonderful times together. First, they gave a talent program on November 20, which was a good representation of the Club. Then came the biggest event of all- their formal banquet. The auditorium was beautifully decorated with streamers coming down to a lighted Christmas tree which truly gave it a Christmas atmosphere. The girls also sponsored two interesting films on .iaturday evenings and sold refreshments in order to help raise money for their proiect, which was, draw drapes for the chapel rostrum, which will add much to its usability and appearance. Of course, there were things they would have liked to have done had there been more time in which to work them in. Our sponsor, Miss Chinn, brought together the girls more closely through her love and helpful guidance.

There are two bass horn players, three on baritones, two trombones, two horns, ten trumpets and cornets, four drummers itwo snares, one bass, one cymbalsl, one bell lyra, three flutes, seven clarinets and six saxophones. While we had several experienced players, because ot the preponderance of the "new crop" members it was necessary to play easy music, the Bennett Band Book KNO il, particularly, The second semester we' concentrated upon music "over our heads", in order to take part with older and more experienced groups at the great massed band festival at Pacific Union College, April 3. Some of these numbers included symphonic arrangements ot Bach. So, this year's music library might well be captioned, "From Bennett to Bach." Students, faculty, and community have cooperated with unusual enthusiasm in order to help develop a pro- gressive organization. The merit system has been a boost to industry on the part of individuals. The band has taken part in several musical programs. At the festival our own feature number of K. L. King's "The Iron Count Overture", a melodious number of medium difficulty. It is our sincere wish that our Modesto Union Academy Band continue to add its measure to a harmonious school spirit.
