Location , HE 1-ligh School is situated about the center of Mt. Pleasant Township, perhaps the most 5 sf picturesque spot in Westmoreland County. The property covers an area of about two Msg acres. It is located on the West Penn Railways, eight miles south of Greensburg, the C N s icti-,Trl , ,1 'J X County seat. The windows of the building command far and most inspiring views of the surround- can look for miles and see only fields and fields and the beauty with wl1icl1 ed mother earth. The land is high and the climate healthful. ing country. You nature has paint Charming in its magnificent scenery and wonderful in its agricultural and material develop- ments, Mt. Pleasant Township is one of the foremost promoters of public education in the State. Few High Schools have more attractive natural sites. Page Niue llagv Gm OLD HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING-Erected in 1905 X The man who has lived for himself has the privilege of being his own mournvr.-Bcr'c1ze1'. ' Historical The history of Mt. Pleasant Township High School is divided, naturally, into two distinct periods--the period of formation and development: and the period of improvement and perfection. For some time prior to the erection of the tlrst High School building, public opinion in Mt. Pleasant Township had been undergoing a tedious adjustment which, finally, settled in favor of educational improvements of which the High School is significant. This idea was given expression through the Board of Education in the summer ol' 1905, which immediately provided for the erection of a two-room brick structure and the establishment of a High School course of study. , The new building was a model of its kind: neat, serviceable and modern, and was a very suitable structure in which to begin the work of preparing boys and girls for useful and efficient service in life. With a class of seventeen with which to organize the work the Mt. Pleasant Township High School doors were thrown open to receive the youth of the district. The work progressed rapidly. The number of pupils in attendance increased and in the fall of 1911 it was found that the building and equipment would not accommodate all the students applying for admission. Now that the attempt in 1905 to establish a High School had proved to be a wise and prodtable undertaking, and with the assurance of a very promising future, steps were taken by the present administration to establish a course of study that would meet the needs of the boys and girls and give to them upon the completion of any of the prescribed courses a first grade High School diploma which would grant them admission to college without ex- amination 'or condition. Early in the spring of 1912 a meeting of the Board of Education was called for the purpose of considering plans for rebuilding and establishing a course of study more extensive and suitable to future circumstances. Under the skillful direction of the faithful Board of Education the proposed project was carried to comple- tion. During the erection of the building and equipping of the laboratories many difficulties were encountered and it was with no little effort that the project was brought to completion. However, in the fall of 1912 the new build- ing with its up-to-date equipment and furniture was ready for occupancy. Capacious as the structure was it required only a short time to learn that the rapid growth in the size of the student body was such that more rooms must be provided if all who apply for entrance are to be cared for. In the spring of 1.914 work was begun on the addition which has just been completed. The new part com- rises a large and well furnished and equipped Commercial Department, Gymnasium, and Class Room.

Statement ' l T- HERE is probably 11otl1ing that has occurred in our county during my superintendency of ' the scl1ools that has given me greater satisfaction than the rapid progress of the Mt. C V Ya' Pleasant Township High School. It just happened that one of the first duties I had to perform in connection with my work was to assist in placing this high school on good footing. It started in tl1e fall of 1905 with 17 pupils and was rated as a third grade high school. To-da.y it has, I understand, 128 pupils and is a first grade high school. In fact, it not only qualifies under the law as a first class school but has in addition to the state requirements a number of departments doing excellent work. The work in tl1e high school is of such clxaracter that it is attracting tl1e attention of the school men in many parts of the state. Very frequently visitors come from a distance to see this modern plant and the work done here. They go away with new conceptions of school work and modern school equipment, and often with determination to give to their own districts increased facilities for the education of their children. We congratulate the boys and girls of Mt. Pleasant Township upon the opportunity that is theirs to do the quality of work that will fit them for living a. more useful life. We also con- gratulate the Board of Education that they had the courage to take this advanced step in making these opportunities possible. Ja- .' ESQ tl 63131 .x 4,11 FII , ROBERT C.

The work of the world is done by few: G04 asks that a Part be done by y0H.--Bfftllff General Information 1, HE lirst lrligh School in the 'United States was founded at Boston in 1821. From the date of the founding of the school at Boston the influence which High School training has had upon man is easily discovered. It has raised the standard of intelligence of the ' GQ people and brought men and women into a knowledge of things which enable them to ' live more completely. A good High School brings to the community an ideal ol' worthy effort with adequate reward at the close. lt creates an atmosphere of accomplishment. Nothing is more ennobling in its tendency than intelligent care for the interest of the rising generation. In communities where the citizens and teachers have learned how to make the best use of the school plant, the High School becomes not only the place for the formal education of the boys and girls, but also the intellectual and social center ot' the community. So great has been the part that the High School has had in the intellectual, economic, and social development of Mt. Pleasant Township, that its building, equipment and courses of study are worthy of the closest study by those interested in intellectual, economic, and social im- provement. llanr Ummtg 0011: Bag: Uwmtg Emu MAIN ENTRANCE Aclion, not spcbch, prow.: thc man.-Horace Mann. PU ,RPO SE. The ultimate aim and purpose of the Mt. Pleasant Township High School is to give to its stu- dents a knowledge of their powers and capabilities and to stimulate within them a desire for life- long growth and improvement and for the enrichment of their lives through the intelligent per- formance of their daily tasks. A careful study of this bulletin should satisfy its readers that any boy or girl under the in- fluence of such a school for four years will be a valuable asset, not only to local interests, but to the country at large. ' METHOD OF INSTRUCTION. The method of instruction carried out in this school encourages the boy and girl to look upon study a necessity and pleasure-not a hardship and task. It shows him what a vital bearing education has on his future success and happiness, It gives him the ability to think for himself by teaching him how to reason. It develops his reasoning powers by degrees and leads him to realize the value of concentrated thought. This method leads the pupil to a thorough knowledge of the subject taught. Every lesson is outlined with the thought-"How will this help the pupil when he has left the High School and is brought to face the problems of life?" Practical value is a first consideration. Before a new lesson is assigned, it is thoroughly outlined and the more difficult parts fully explained. The pupil is not left to ponder the pages of the text in darkness. He is given a definite and concrete understanding of the work to be done. ling: Clfwmtg Glhrn The work is assigned with discretion, the assignment covering only what he can reasonably be expected to master. As a result-he does not become discouraged and give up in despair be- fore he has fairly begun. The instruction is largely personal. Classes are purposely made small in order that each student may 1'eceiVe the necessary individual attention which is of vital importance to boys and girls pursuing a High School course. The teachers' companionship and preceptorship is intimate and constant. In school and out he is a sincere friend-ready to advise and help. Dl SCIPLINE. The discipline is firm but kindly. The school maintains but one rule, with a few minor regu- lations-"Do Rightn. On this one rule the Mt. Pleasant Township High School has, for five years, disciplined its students. So far as possible the school is run according to the principles set down by the Great Teacher, two thousand years ago. The school authorities assume that those wl1o enter the High School come earnestly desirous to prepare themselves for useful and honorable careers in life. The aim of the faculty is to lead students to cultivate habits of steady application, self-control, ahigh sense of honor, truthfulness, and an interest in maintaining the high standard which the school has held for several years. Those who are not disposed to support heartily a sentiment of this kind should not apply for admission. In recommending graduates, the faculty will discriminate between those who have, throughout the four years, maintained a good dcportment grade and those who have not. fag: Zllmrntn Inu: 1.

The Iirst part of a recita- tion period is devoted to directing the pupil in the preparation of the following day 's work. The essential features are pointed out, the difficulties are noted, and a method suggested to overcome them. By this method the teacher is able to prevent a student from wasting time i11 the prepar- ation of his work. There is, however, little gained by having the pupil put unnecessary time on obscurities of the lesson, when by judicious suggestions from the teachers, the difficulties should be mastered very readily. Furthermore, the teachers are enabled to get an estimate of the power possessed by the student. This is made possible in the Mt. Pleasant Township fl-ligh School because the classes are not crowded, the work is arranged in departments and the teachers are given periods for ample supervision and personal suggestions. ADMISSION TO THE SCHOOL. No entrance examination is required, provided the applicant for admission is a graduate of the eighth grade. According to a resolution adopted by the Board of Education in 1912, appli- cants residing in Mt. Pleasant Township must be graduates of the eighth grade. No special en- trance examinations will be held by the High School principal for resident pupils. An examination for non-resident pupils applying for entrance to the first year class is conducted by the principal at the High School on the day following the opening of the fall term. In cases where students enter advanced classes by certificates from other schools, they will be placed on trial in such classes as their certificates warrant. Hugs Cllmsntg Zhu: N. B.-Physics and Chemistry credits from other schools will be accepted only upon the pre- sentation of the student's laboratory notebooks, duly approved and signed by the principal of the school and the instructor under whom the pupil studied these branches. Notebooks must contain , the number of experiments required and cover the specified laboratory requirements of this school. REPoR'rs. On the first Thursday following the close of each school month, reports of the work for the month are submitted to the students and parents. It is suggested that you talk over the report with the pupil every time it is received. The pupil naturally looks for praise or censure, according as the record is good or bad. If good, an encouraging word should be spoken, on the other hand, if irregular attendance, low deportment, or neglected lessons are reported, the fact should not pass unnoticed. Besides these reports, a term general report containing a summation of the student's record for the year is submitted at the close of the school year. A term average of 88? or more in a given branch, where the deportnient grade does not neces- sitate a drop in the average, will make final examination in the given branch optional. CHAPEL. Every Friday morning chapel exercises are held in the Auditorium, at which the students are required to be present. At this service there is singing, reading of the Scriptures, and prayer all - in accordance with the School Law Requirements. Members of the Faculty conduct these exercises. The singing is in charge of the regular teacher of music. fag: Zlhumig Dix He who day obeys with modesty, UPPWV-Y 'w0"fh5' of fame or other being allowed to command.-Cicero. SCHOLARSHIPS. To give expression to the school authorties of Mt. Pleasant Township, that something of credit to the district and of special benefit to graduates be accomplished, there has been put forth each year, an effort to secure scholarships for those who receive the highest grades upon graduation. It is indeed gratifying to know that since the High School has ranked among the first grade schools-since 1912--several colleges have awarded scholarships to the honor pupils of the graduat- ing class. The granting of such scholarships is for the purpose of assisting young men and women to secure a college education. Any boy or girl in the academic department is eligible to compete for a scholarship. HONOR CERTIFICATES. Besides making every effort to secure scholarships for the students, we have another method of rewarding those who do excellent work in this school. This reward is in the form of an Honor Certilicate, which is a sort of special recommendation. Such Certificates are granted to members of the Senior class, who are proficient in some one or more branches of the curriculum. And truly they are Honor Certificates, for the amount of study necessary to obtain them must be of the highest degree. Graduates feel great pride when they have earned such statements of merit which often serve them well after graduating, when called upon to measure up to certain requirements in the out- side world.

Building and Equipment ef? D oi many yeais the Bo iid of Education, the patrons, and the High School teachers of Mt Pleasant 'lounship had been dreiming of 'i -beautiful, modern and capacious elm'-9 temple of learning which should be called "The Mt. Pleasant Township High School." Then, one day, with one accord, the officials whose duty it was to do so, met and enthusi- astically determined that the dream should come true. The methods of procedure were promptly decided upon and complete arrangements were made to further the ultimate success of the project. The result was that in 1912 excavations began the construction proper. Slowly but surely the dream became a noble reality, and a fitting climax it was when, on the evening of March 7, 1913, dedication exercises, attended by an overflow crowd of interested folks, were held in the beautiful auditorium. The dedication of the new building proved to be quite an inspiring event. An elaborate program was rendered mostly by representative students themselves, although an introductory address was made by the principal, and a masterful talk was delivered by Prof. Robert C. Shaw, County Super- intendent. The students acquitted themselves well. There were solos, recitations, and instrumental music. The latter was largely furnished by the High School Orchestra. Indeed, the whole entertainment was a real "house warmer." A local newspaper, the day before the above affair, published a very liberal announcement in which it said that the people could feel great pride in the fact of possessing one of the best and OME people dream tllltl dream. Others dream and work. I l ' c yd T' L ll il i . U' c Nag: Umrntg Nine most modernly equipped buildings in the state, as well as having a course of study that ranks with the best. It further stated: "It is truly what a school house should be: 'a power house of knowl- edge! " Directors, teachers, and many, many friends co-operated in various ways to bring the numer- ous details concerning the new structure to a commendable completion, and sincere thanks is due all. May such co-operation never be lacking! . At a great distance, one feels a thrill of pride when looking toward the structure, and even the stranger afar off can decide at a glance that it is no mean edifice. Approaching the tract of land so well selected for the school our visitor remarks to us that the campus in many respects resembles that of a college. Then we point with pride to the concrete walks, gracefully graded ground and young trees. We next view the exterior of the High School proper and note that the well-made bricks were put up by none but the best workmen, that the base of stone makes a solid support that will not permit any sagging of the super-structure, that the architecture, while neat and imposing, is not gaudy or fantastic, that the windows are numerous and well placed as they should be in any school building. Then our visitor states that it was very wise to build the school on the rectangular plan for much space which would otherwise be lost can now be utilized. Besides, square corners make any building have an imposing and magnihcent appearance. And such an appearance cer- tainly demands respect and admiration. - The beautiful white pillars and upper portion of the Main Entrance cannot but elicit a Word of praise from our visitor as we escort him toward the doors. Wlien we open them, he examines the Hag: Zllhirig X., finish of the wood and says, "Almost too elegant for a school building." But we respond, "We spared neither pain nor expense to make the wood-work throughout show up as nicely as do these doors. A special stain was used, and why should not our young men and women have the best pos- sible surroundings ? " But our words are little heeded, for he is looking down the long, large, well-lighted and at- tractive hall and is doubtless thinking of by-gone, days when school accommodations were of the poorest and rudest construction. VVQ arouse him and lead him down into the basement. Here we proudly show him the Shop 3 the Engine Room and its Equipment, including the Electric Light and .Power Plant, the Gas Mixer and Generator, the Water Plantg and the Heating and Ventilating system. During the whole trip through the basement we are pleased to hear him quite frequently remark that he never imagined a school basement could be so finely finished and well kept. And indeed it is seldom that one sees a basement lighted so abundantly with electricity, or occupying so much concrete floor space and all of it devoted to good use. ' In the shop, the extensive array of tools, devices, etc., is so striking that the visitor cannot help saying, "Truly the school does much more than formerly to prepare young people for the future, and to help them discover and develope whatever natural skill they possess." The twelve work benches conform to the latest approved models. The complete set of cross- cut, rip, and back saws make it possible for the young workman to work out almost any practical design in carpentry. And to aid in the final construction of the problem, we see full outfits of planes, gauges, squares, chisels, braces and bits, hammers and hatchets, mallets, rulers, scrapers, screw drivers, nail sets, spokeshaves and drawshaves, spirit-levels, carborundum bench ggrinder vBQP lllhiriu Our lluge Clflgirty Emu ENGINE ROOM, SECTION I-Power Plant in Operation f' and carborundum double-faced stone, as well as a large cyeo grindstone. To learn to use all these is an education in itself, and there is every evidence that the boys are becoming quite efficient in that direction. "Now," we say, "let us pass into the Engine Room and examine its wonderful equipment." And our visitor shows great eagerness to do so. "How different from what one would expect to find an engine room!" he exclaims. "Why I have always associated gloom, dirt and chaos with the idea of engine rooms in general, but cer- tainly this one is a model for its cleanliness, systematic arrangement of most modern machines and for its appearance of complete harmony in every detail." "True," we proudly agree. "And note the excellent finish of the walls, ceiling and wood-work. -We keep them looking nice, too.-Besides, there is a place for everything, and everything may always be found in its place. Those cases over there, built in the wall, have a compartment for all needed materials, and, no matter when you may come in here, you will find them there unless they are being used at the time." ' Then our visitor comments most strongly upon the eompactness of everything in the room. "It is, I think, remarkable that the machinery for so much power can be built in so small a space," he says. "And with it all, there is ample room to move around at will without any real danger. Ordinarily, a stranger in an engine room feels very uncomfortable and afraid 3 but here it is so different. There is no dangerous machinery hidden here and there to take one by surprise. And how brightly everything shines! That means work. a Q Qing: Ulhtrtg Ulhrrr Hag: Ulhirty Zinur ELECTRIC LIGHT AND POWER PLANT "There is nothing but work in the whole house." we reply, "for we've no room for anything or anybody that is not associated with work.-But come, let us look closer at the various ma- chines." So saying, we take him to the Electric Light and Power Plant. 'tThis Plant," we explain, "is a Duplex, Vertical, Direct Connected Type, capable of develop- ing 18 H. P. It has a capacity of 400 lights. Think ot it! 400 lights can be kept aglow by means of this compact plant.-N ow let us look at the engine. It is equipped with the Bosch high tension jump spark system of ignition, of which you have no doubt heard a great deal. The cylinders are water-cooled, while tl1e circulation is controlled by a circulating pump located at the base of the foundation. NVhen working full load, this plant consumes less than one-eighth gallon of gasoline per H. P. l1our. Surprising, isn't it ?-The Switchboard, over there, is equipped with standard Volt-meter, Ammeter, Rheostat, Main Switch and Circuit Breaker. The wiring is in rigid conduit. Our total operating expense for last year Q12 monthsj was only 3558. Have you ever seen a better and more economical system in a school building?" "Really," says the interested spectator, "1 am certain that I have not." "Now," we continue, "let us take just a moment to glance at the Gas Mixer and Generator. Here we are. It operates on 860 gasoline and has a 50 burner capacity. Its work is to supply gas for the laboratories which we will visit later. i "And here is the water plant,-our Pneumatic Water System from which the entire building is furnished with water.

Gasoline Engine near by keeps the fan turning at 200 revolutions per minute, delivering 30 cubic feet of fresh air per minute for each pupil in the building. The Thermostat System ol' ll eat Regulation, a most amazingly suc- cessful method, is a special feature of the heating system. The entire system was installed by the Columbus Heating and Ventilating Co., Columbus, Ohio, whose Pittsburgh branch had charge of the installation. We just about manage to finish explaining the principles upon which the above system oper- ates, when, as we are walking through the basement, we hear lusty and continuous shouts from somewhere. Our visitor looks at us questioningly, and we quickly say, "Oh, yes! there is an Inter- class Basket-ball game today in the Gymnasium. l' fear we are too late to witness it, but we will hurry there at oncef' VVe do so, but, as surmised, the game was over. However, the opportunity, being a good one, we take time to view that much needed "plant". As our visitor comes to the entrance of the "Gym", his eyes glisten with delight, and he pauses, saying, "So this the room where the BODIES of the boys and girls are given physical Maur Ellhirtn Bram ling: Uhirtg Eight GYMNASIUM f' education! VVell, it is unusual to find such esthetic surroundings. The clean Walls of a beautiful sand finish, and the plenteous supply of electric lights would together be a stimulus to think of high and noble things, and they do say that when our minds are occupied by elevating ideas, We unconsciously lift our heads and throw back our shoulders and feel stronger all over.-Pride: I guess that's about what much of it amounts to, but those who have no respect for themselves or their surroundings are really to be pitied. You need not fear that the young people who assemble here do not benefit in a thousand ways by so doing." Vlfe agree heartily with the sentiment of our friend, but hasten to point out other features in the make-up of the room. "Beneath this fine wood fioor," we begin, "there is a concrete foundation. You can decide as much for yourself by stamping sharply with your heel. The purpose of such a foundation is to make the floor capable of bearing almost any weight or shock, and there will be no wear out except from the surface of the wood, which will be very, very slow because no one is allowed to mar the fioor unduly.-You will also note that the wood-work has been finished in "battle-ship gray" but unlike our Uncle Sam, we do not wish to hide anything from view. That color is the most service- able and doesn't show minor scratches, finger marks or other stains caused by usage, as readily as would another finish." "Splendid," returns the on-looker,"-"I suppose many a good game is played here from time to time." ,HBP Ulpirig Niue "The yelling we have just heard is pretty good evidence that things are doing along that line. 'We hold .Inter-class games here, for class supremacy in athletics, believing that friendly rivalry is a good thing. Our various teams have big things planned for the future. "Besides, this room is used for social gatherings. In here are held the class receptions. We are not hampered, for 1100 square feet of floor space are at our disposal," we explain. Then our visitor, who seems to see a great deal more than we sometimes think he does, adds that the numerous light bulbs are very wisely placed beyond immediate danger from a flying basket-ball, yet alford sufficient light for the bountiful feasts of the banqueters. VVe now start upwards to begin our inspection of the various "gymnasiums" for mental de- velopment. In our conversation while ascending the stairways, our friend is told to be sure to notice that all class rooms are large and as scientifically arranged as possibleg that the students' desks are all ofthe new pressed steel, with cherry finished woodg and that the blackboard space is not only especially large in each room, but is especially excellent in quality. VVhen we come to the Laboratories, the stranger is amazed at the wonderful collection of ap- paratus, particularly in the Chemical and Physical Rooms. He is also a triHe taken back by the odors which greet his olfactory nerves! "At any rate," says he, "your Chemical Laboratory is like others in one respect." "Yes,,' we reply, "but unlike most others in respect to their location in the building, and in respect to the cost of their equipment. You see, these rooms are placed on the second floor so that the fumes which you have noticed will not invade any other part of the building." llngr Zfnrtu Z, "Over here are two large chemical tables, with drawers, cases for storing various needed arti- cles, and a three shelf rack on which you may see reagent bottles. These tables were designed especially for this school. We did not simply order "tables". We knew exactly what kind we wanted, and nothing else would have been acceptable.-A-.An expert mechanic along any line must have the very best tools in order to do his best work. Boys and girls should also have the pro- per materials with which to do their experimenting because it is experimenting. A truly success- ful solution to a problem up here can scarcely be obtained by novices if they must suffer the great difficulties encountered when, for example, something goes wrong with an inferior piece of appara- tus." "And how much more rapidly can our students work here at these troughs which are plumbed for individual gas and water supply, than if such were not the case. Why, the safety of the young chemist would not be at all certain if, in case ol? an accident, the necessary flow of water could not be obtained. Indeed the benches thus equipped are very useful and labor saving for all who work in our Laboratories." The all-seeing eyes of the stranger are searching every nook and corner in sight while we speak, and he is quick to say again, system prevails. He also comments very warmly upon the artistic workmanship betrayed by the large and well arranged display cases, placing special stress upon the value of the natural wood linish. "These cases," we add, "contain a complete supply of all sorts of materials for use in our three Laboratories. See the bottles of acids, the different instrumentsg and all other pieces of para- phernalia. This is for illustrating the theory of the lever, this for illustrating the manner in which noise may become soundg this for teaching about the generation of electrieityg all these bulbs, wires, linac Blurty ibut llagr Bfnrtg Umn ENGINE ROOM--Section II etc., are for the teaching of the application of the principles relating. to electric power. So it is plain that for the study of Physics or Chemistry we have every conceivable device,-and we should have, for our equipment is valued at 351800.00 Quite a sum, is it not?" "Yes, but I'm sure you have the very latest and best models of most modern design. Besides, the outlay will not have been in vain if your students are enabled to learn enough of' the wonderful secrets in the realm of scientific knowledge to arouse them to further untiring investigation, or in some manner to beneiit themselves and posterity." "You're always looking ahead," we put in. "I wonder how many people realize the vast im- portance of courses like these. The world is daily making more urgent demands on the schools of the entire country to produce experts in analyzing the component parts of the innumerable articles of' commerce. We also sorely need skilled engineers. No college can turn out proficient engineers, unless High Schools like this one prepare them for those higher institutions of learning. Hence our work here in these class rooms is intended as a stepping stone to more advanced fields. Of course, all our fine apparatus, some of' which was made to order, would not amount to much in the hands of our students if we had not strong progressive teachers. We are proud to say that we have such, as results show." Then, as we turn our attention to the Agricultural Laboratory, we tell our companion that all the fine equipment we are examining was furnished by the C cntral Scientific Co., of C hicago. "Here in our Agricultural Department, we are especially prepared to carry on experimental work," we begin. "This outfit was recommended by the State Department. As you know, the 1911 School Code of Pennsylvania requires the teaching of agriculture, and wise is the requirement, ling: .Harm Zilhrn ilngr Zffnrtg iffnnr STUDY HALL--Seats 100 Pupils f' for "back to the farm" is the only theory whose application will counteract the enormous demand for food products now being felt by all. "Close by you there are the soil thermometers, the use of which, while not yet general or completely practical, is a very important 'factor in investigations now being worked out. Here are brass soil tubes, glass soil tubes, and galvanizcdiron supports. There are what we call soil bins, for the study of varieties of soils and sub-soils. Those dishes are used for evaporating solu- tions from which we very often get precipitations of much value in the experiment the student may be studying.--And here are burettes.-The Bunsen burner is always in evidence in any laboratory. -Then we have a miscellaneous collection of things scattered here and there, including scoops, sieves, soil angers, grading sieves, drying oven, pulverizing apparatus, balances, moisture-proof containers, water bath, beakers, flasks, and tubes galore." "Somewhat bewildering, I must confess," says our friend, "for we had very few things of a similar nature when I was a High School pupil. You know We did our farming according to the old-fashioned ways handed down by our grandfathers.--How things do change! Why scientific farming is saner and attended with surprising success everywhere! It is the present great field for the young man or woman." We agree most heartily with the statement just made, and we add that the pendulum must swing back again to the farms. H Our visitor next expresses a desire to go to the Study Hall, and whether or not it is according to our own plan to do so, makes no diFference, for we must above all show him every courtesy. Fug: Jnriu lim Arriving there, our visitor again 1'GIl'liLI'iiS about the beautiful cherry finish of the desks, and particularly speaks of the abundant supply of light from the large and numerous windows. - "An elegant room, indeed," he ejaculates, "It is very evident that you have made the best pro' visions possible for the care of the eye-sight of teacher and pupils in this room. It is really appal- ling to go about as I have do11e already and see the many ill-lighted schools, some of which were over-lighted and others under-lighted,-and still others with sufficient light not p1'operly distribut- ed. VVhy, to properly arrange forthe lighting of any school room is a science in itself, and I must say that few authorities who construct our schools seem to show any great knowledge of that science. Here, however, the rays of light from the windows, which are well placed, comes, for the most part, unilaterally, and no one needs face the strong beams of daylight." "Everyone has praise for just the details you have commended.-While we see many things here and there about the building that could have been improved upon, we feel that the construction of the whole has been a practical as well as a theoretical success. It was no easy matter to figure just how much strength of light could be admitted and distributed through a certain sized window. But we got there. ' "Now if you were to count the desks in the room you will find it can accommodate one hundred students. The desk supports are of the most up-to-date patterns in pressed steel and compactly built. You can see the advantage of eliminating all moveable parts that are not absolutely necessary." "Indeed I can. In addition to all other advantages we might mention, such supports are sanitary. The room can be kept cleaner than otherwise, and therefore the air breathed is less germ laden.-By the way, do you know that I have been actually expecting to find one condition existing lag! Jiang Dix 1' in your I-ligh School in spite of the wonderful machines in the basement?-So far it has not been in evidencef' "What is it?"' we query. "I expected to find most rooms stuffy and containing foul air, most noticeable to one who enters from withoutg but there is every indication that your li-leating and Ventilation system is all that you claim for it", he answers. " And no doubt when you came into this room you also looked for the teacher's desk to be in the front of the room. But there it is at the rear, on a slightly raised platform. The idea is rather new and is satisfactory. The teacher in charge of the Study Hall, while enabled to have a complete view of everything, can engage in whatever work he has to do at his desk without in any way distracting the boys and girls from their study. Besides, placed thus, the teacher is not under so great a nervous strain when he wishes to study for himself." Our friend nods his approval and tells us he would like to see the Commercial Room, the Library and the Auditorium at least before leaving. WVe suggest inspecting the Auditorium last, for it would make the best climax for the whole trip, and he consents. HA real business establishment!" says he, as we enter the Commercial Room.His eyes sparkle. "Yes," we say, "here is where we teach our boys and girls that a solid foundation is as neces- sary to a successful business career as to a building. And we see to it that they get the training so essential in these days of sharp competition. All lines of business knowledge are taught with un- tiring energy and with excellent results. Our Book-keeping, il-lankiug and Stenographic depart- ments are complete in every respect. Hag: Jung Drum "Come, let us show you our Banking department. Here is practically a modern bank in minia- ture, with the various windows, counters and desks for any and all banking transactions." "It is remarkable to have the advantage of studying theories and putting them into practice almost simultaneously," says our visitor. "Each pupil can have a chance to be a bank president, cashier or any other officer down to stenographer. "I see you have the latest improved models of the standard makes of typewriters. I would be willing to employ anyone graduating from this department, for I'm sure none are ever recom- mended for graduation who do not measure up to the requirements.-Your outfit seems also to in- clude the most trivial things." "It does," we state. "It is an equipment which, so far as we know, is the best that could be secured.-Appearance isn't everything, but here the furniture and other things are of line quality, and are useful and ornamental." "After examining the walls, desks, tables, typewriters, etc. more closely, our visitor expresses his readiness to proceed to the Library. "This Library," we begin, as we wave him to one of the chairs which possesses an extra wide right arm, "is our veritable gold mine of knowledge. And isn't it beautiful in general make up?- You may have been visiting many schools in our district, but I know positively that this Library is the most attractive!" l ' "Very true," he emphatically agrees. "Its tasteful and yet practical features are very pleas- ing and impressive. One feels as if he were visiting the library of a wealthy private home." Huge Jfnrtg Eight X., "The value of the lore preserved in these books," we continue, "cannot be measured by mere dollars. For 'Wisdom is more precious than silver or gold.'-To elevate a young person's mind by the reading of these books is a wonderfully admirable work. NVe try to interest all in good litera- ture." "The book-cases are, as you see, of Old English design. They were placed here at great ex- pensef' Our visitor carefully looks over the finish of the wood and says, "The fine finish makes an ex- cellent mirror to reflect the artistic surroundings. This is certainly an admirable place for the Library. The light is good and there is an atmosphere of seclusion and privacy." "Yes," we concur, "and this room makes an excellent place forthe meeting of our Directors." As we seat Ol'l1'S6lVGS at the large beautiful table, solidly built, and while resting for a moment, we point out features of special interest. We also make sure to impress upon him that there are in those cases, about 2200 Volumes of the best books on all subjects. All of them are carefully catalogued, and the reference index system is so well arranged that it takes but a moment to find where a required volume is located. "You see, this box containing two drawers of cards, alphabetically arranged, is our concise method of cataloging. It is very similar to the method employed in the Library of Congress." "I think so too,l' agrees the onlooker. 1 Later, when We arise to go to the Auditorium, our visitor, in his final. glance over the Library voices the opinion that the chandeliers suspended by oxidized copper chains, correspond Well with the lines of the room. Nag: Jlnrtg Ninn' Bags Miftg PRIVATE OFFICE OF THE PRINCIPAL When we close the door behind us, he asks what other rooms might be seen if he had the time to spareg and we reply "You have scarcely had an opportunity to glance at our Manual Training Room, a very necessary room, especially for the students in the agricultural department. Our capacious Boys' and Girls' Cloak Rooms are separate. We will not have time to see our Town- ship Supply and Auditors' Room, our Store Room, and High School Supply Room. The Public Office you have already noticed in passing, and now that I think of it, let 's go to the Private Office for a few moments. I wish to show you something interesting." He looks at his watch and says, "Very well." "Here," we begin as soon as we enter the office, "is our 'Central' It is a modern Annunciatorg a three wire system by which a return call can be sent to any part of the building in response to the original signal." "It is a pre-requisite for a large school building. Yet I see very few, excepting in the newest schools," remarks our friend. We show him how the system works and then depart for the Auditorium. The first thing the stranger says when he gazes on the beauty of this room is, "Wonderful". "One would consider this a 1'oyal theatre!" "The beautiful stage, the artistic frescoing on walls and ceiling, the stage curtains, and the good taste which attends all, combine to give one a most exquisite picture. ' ' "But," we state with pride, "you must know that the frescoing is not only beautiful and ex- pensive,-it serves the purpose of aiding in the distribution of the light." Mage Zlliftg 49:12 Bag: Jiftg Uma AUDITORIUM "The electric light fixtures, you see, are like those in the other rooms. All the fixtures in the building are of Colonial Design, Tongstelier Type, Oxidized Copper. The Reflectors are Genuine Holophane. Mazda lamps are used throughout. In all, there are 135 electric lights in this room ar- ranged in drops, brackets and showers. Special reflectors are used back of the arch in order to effect a perfect illumination, which is also greatly enhanced by the foot-lights.-Let me switch on all the lights. There! Even though it is daytime, the flood of radiance is strong yet not blinding." " And how many seats do I see?" he queries. "There are -L15 theatre seats, and you see they are comfortably placed. VVe accommodated 800 people here last spring at the Annual Senior Class Play." 'WVell, I should judge that the cubic contents of the air in the room, owing to the height of the ceiling, is sufficient for even such a large audience.-How are the acoustics?" "Excellent," we return, "for you can see how a portion of the ceiling above the stage slants gradually forward and upward. NVe certainly could not afford to neglect so vital a matter in con- structing this hall. " "Now step this way, and look at our piano. It is one of the best New York makes and has served us well. The space on either side of it is used by the orchestra." Next we show our visitor the rear of the fine large stage. Here he examines the draperies and the stage drop. The latter, 011 which is painted a beautiful campus scene, was painted by a Fresh- man . Hag: Jiffy Uhrn The two dressing rooms and the general arrangement of all the stage details are carefully in- spected. The stage is four feet high, and from it we obtain a good view of the rest of the room. VVe point out the value of the fact that the ceiling slants toward the walls on either side of the long room, further aiding the acoustic properties. "Now," reluctantly states our interested companion, as we leave the stage, "I find that if I am to catch the next car, I must leave your charmingly adequate and modern school immediately. I may never 1'9tlll'l1, but I shall always carry in my mind the beautiful pictures my trip through your building has allowed me to see." And we respond, "You have been such an interested and enthusiastic visitor that our own pride in our surroundings has been stimulated, and we feel more than ever the truth of the proverb: 'A thing of beauty is a joy forever.' And we sincerely hope that our plans for the spiritual, mental and physical training of our boys and girls will meet with even greater success than did our plans for the construction of this building." "May your hopes come true for the sake of all concerned!,' he answers fervently, as he extends his hand. "Thank you for your courtesy.- Good-bye." .

" MATHEMATICS. Algebra I-II-Algebra to Quadratics and Beyond. Taught throughout the first and second years: Including the four fundamental operations for rational algebraic expressions, factoring, determination of highest common factor and lowest common multiple by factoring, fractions, in- cluding complex fractions, and ratio and proportion, linear equations, both numerical and literal, containing one or more unknown quantities, problems depending on linear equations, radicals, ex- ponents, including the fractional and negative, quadratic equations, both numerical and literal, simple cases of equations, with one or more unknown quantities, that can be solved by the methods of linear or quadratic equations, and the arithmetical and geometric progressions with applications. Pupils are required throughout the course to solve numerous problems which involve putting ques- tions into equations. Some of those problems are chosen from mensuration, from physics, and from commercial life. The use of graphical methods and illustrations, particularly in connection with the solution of equations, is required. Plane Geometry--The usual theorems and constructions of the text, including the general properties of plane rectilinear figures, the circle and the measurement of angles, similar polygons, areas, regular polygons, the solution of numerous original exercises including loci problems and applications to the mensuration of lines and plane surfaces. ling: Iffiftg Eight f' Solid Geometry-The usual theorems and constructions of the text, including the relations of planes and lines in space, the properties and measurement of prisms, pyramids, cylinders, and cones, the sphere and spherical triangle, the solution of numerous original exercises, and applica- tions to the mensuration of surfaces and solids. Plane Trigonometry-Definitions and relations of tl1e six trigonometric functions as ratios, circular measurement of angles, proofs of principal formulas, in particular for the sine, cosine, and tangent of the sum and the difference of two angles, of the double angle and tl1e half angle, the product expressions for the sum or the difference of two sines or of two cosines, etc., the trans- formation of trigonometric expressions by means of these formulas, the solution of trigonometric equations of a simple character, the theory and use of logarithms, and the solution of right and oblique triangles and numerous practical applications. Advanced Algebra,-The course in advanced algebra covers thorough review of all the topics in elementary algebra. and intermediate algebra, with more difficult applications than can be ex- pected in the earlier study of those courses, together with the following additional topics: Graph- ing of functions and equations, theory of equations, determinants, permutations, combinations, var- iation, and method of undetermined co-efficients. P SCIENCE. Physical Geography-The origin and significance of the great relief features of the earth, and the topographic forms of the land, the earth as a planet, the atmosphere, the climate, weather pre- dictions. Appropriate field and laboratory work accompanies the study of the text. Iiagr liftg Ninn lllagr Siam!

Frequent reference is made to the Agricultural Year Book. The note book work is a special feature of this branch. Chemistry--The aim of the course is to present Chemistry to tl1e beginner in such a way as to enable him to grasp tl1e fundamental principles and to help him to secure a working knowledge of tl1e Science in tl1e laboratory. First Principles of Chemistry by Brownlee and others, and laboratory exercises accompanying same. - . The course of instruction in Chemistry is based on the following: The study of the text book complete, that the pupil may gain a comprehensive and connected View of the more important facts and laws of elementary chemistry. Individual laboratory work consisting of exercises covering not less than thirty-five experi- ments. . - Instruction by lecture table demonstrations, mainly as a basis for questioning upon the gen- eral principles of chemistry and their applications. Throughout the course special attention is paid to the common illustrations of chemical laws and to their industrial applications. Hag: Sixty Gm lag: Sixty Gum SECTION OF PHYSICS LABORATORY 1' NOTE BOOKS-Each student is required to keep a note book in which all demonstrations and laboratory work are written up, giving the subject of the exercise, materials used, full descrip- tion of how the work was done, drawings, all data secured, solution of problems, anwers to ques- tions that follow the demonstration and laboratory work, or to similar questions prepared by the teacher. . Physics-The aim of the instruction in Physics is to give the student a. thorough knowledge of the principles and laws that govern physical phenomena, allfl to acquaint him with the actual opera- tions of these principles and laws. The work is presented to the student by lectures, with experi- mental demonstrations, combined with recitations, and the solution of problems. In the practical work, the student performs such experiments in the laboratory as will give him a practical knowl- edge of the principles and laws of Physics. H The course of instruction in Physics includes: The study of Hoadley's Essentials of Physics complete that the student may gain a comprehensive and connected view of the more important facts and laws governing the science of matter and energy. ' Instruction by lecture table demonstrations, mainly as a basis for questioning upon the general principles of Physics and their applications. Individual laboratory work consisting of at least thirty-five experiments. Throughout the course special attention is paid to the common illustrations of physical laws and to their industrial applications. Whenever the solution of numerical problems is required, the student is required to make use of the principles of algebra and geometry to reduce the difiiculty of solution. A complete record of the laboratory work in Physics is kept by each student. NOTE BOOKS-The note book work, in plan, is similar to that kept in chemistry. fag: Bing lllhrn Mechanical Drawing-The course in Mechanical Drawing is planned to properly p1'epare students for advanced machine design. It has been found necessary to introduce a course designed to apply the principles of Mechanical Drawing to the solution of practical problems in machine construction, and to familiarize the student with tilt? arrangement and proportions of the most important machines and their details recognized by competent engineers to be the best practice of the present time. ' The latest and most approved drafting room methods in use in this country are carried out. The plates include: Screws, Nuts, Bolts, Keys, Cotters, Gibs, Rivets, Riveted-joints, Shafting and Shaft Couplings, Pipes and Pipe Couplings, Bearings, Sole Plates, lVall Box Frames, Belt Gearing, and Engine Details complete, drawings from sketches of machines in high school engine room. The well-equipped engine room in the basement of the building affords splendid opportunities for students to study machine design from the practical as well as the theoretical side. LANGUAGE. German I,-'Phe Iii-st yew-'S work comprises: careful drill in pronunciation, dictation, men- orizing of easy colloquial sentences, drill in the rudiments of grammar, i. e., the inflection of nouns, adjectives, pronouns, weak verbs, andthe more usual strong verbs, the use of prepositions, tl1e simplest rules of syntax and word order, simple exercises in conversation, and the 1'eading of from seventy-five to one lmndred pages of a graduated text from a reader 01' from editions of easy texts. Thorough drill in German composition. German II.w-The second year's work comprises: the reading of one lmndred fifty to two hun- dred pages of literature in the form of easy stories and plays, a. further study of syntax, conversa- iiagr Slxtg 31 nur X, tion based on the text read, practice in the translation into German of easy variations upon the matter read, and also in off-hand reproduction, sometimes orally and sometimes in writing, of the substance of selected passages. . Thorough drill in German composition. Latin I.-The Work of the iirst year comprises: Teaching the pupil to pronounce accurately and to read fluently and intelligently the work of the Latin text, the mastery of inflection, so that num- ber, case, person, mode, tense, etc., can be instantly recognized and conversely, can be formed with- out much hesitation by the student himself, the acquisition of a working vocabulary of from one to two thousand words, the mastery of the order of, the Latin sentence, the mastery of the simpler principles of syntax regarded as a means of expression, learning how to understand simple narra- tive in Latin, learning l1ow to translate such narrative into true English. In necessary connection with the pursuit of these aims, a. good deal of training of the ear is employed, through listening to the reading or speaking of the teacher, and, inaddition, a certain amount of practice in turning English into Latin is necessary, as an indispensable instrument for fixing forms in the memory and establishing a feeling for their syntactical powers. Latin II.-Caisar's Gallic VVai', 4 books. Latin composition, based on the text. Vocabulary, syntax, movements of campaigns, and narrative themes on certain groups of chapters. . Latin III.--Cicero: 4 Orations Against Catiline, The Manilian Law, and Archias. Latin composition, based on the text., Vocabulary, syntax, written translation, Homeric traditions, arguments, theme- writing, and study of a.uthor's style. Nag: img Jim' Latin IV.-Virgil's Aeneid, 6 hooks. Vocabulary, syntax, written translations, Homeric traditions, Greek mythology, Roman religion, and the geography of the Mediterranean. Scansion and practice in reading hexameter verse. English I.--The course in English in the first year consists of: I.-Grammar-A thorough review of English grammar, with special attention given to the inflection ot' nouns and pronouns, agreement of pronoun with antecedent and of verb with subject, distinction between transitive and iutransitive verbs, between the active and the passive voiceg attention to tl1e most common errors in the student's oral and written composition. Conjunctions coordinate and subordinate, other kinds of words used as connectivesg study of tenses, distinction between the present and the present perfect, the past and the past perfectg con- sistency in tl1e use of tensesg tl1e distinctive uses of the indicative and the subjunctive modes, the various adverb relations expressed by word, phrase, and clause, e. g. purpose, result, cause and manner, the objective complement, the adverbial objective, accepted idiomatic uses of it, their, as, but, than. II.-Composition and Rhetoric-The work of the term includes: 1. Letter VVriting, with attention to substance as well as to form. 2. Short themes both oral and written, based for the most part on the experience of the student. A fair proportion of the themes is narratives and descriptions. 3. A review of capitalization and of the simpler principles ot' punctuation. Elementary studies of the principles of Unity and Coherence in the composition and in sentences. llagr Sixtg Six X, S III.-Literature-Required for reading a11d study: Classics selected from the list as recom- mended by the National Conference on Uniform Entrance Requirements in English. IV.-Oral Composition-Throughout tl1e High School period tthe four yearsj considerable emphasis is placed upon oral composition. Considerable attention is paid to the development of clearness of oral expression. Students are not only helped in every way to overcome common errors in speech, but are also trained to express themselves clearly and forcibly in sustained dis- course. In this work constant attention is paid to distinctness of utterance, to pronunciation, in- flection, and phrasing. A number of opportunities are offered each year for students to speak from the platform in the High School auditorium. The dramatic work of the school affords splendid opportunities for train- ing in oral expression.

Vocational Agricultura Instruction. , HE occupation of farming has always been one of the most fundamental and most im- portant occupations occupying man 's attention. It is steadily increasing in importance. Pennsylvania like many other States in this country has sudered a decrease in the rela- Mgifsmt tive amount of its rural population during the past thirty years. In 1890 Pennsylvania's rural population was over 5573 of the total population of the State, today the rural popu- lation represents only between 35 and 407, of the total population. Part of this great decrease in the relative population has been caused by the boys and girls leaving the farms and going to the towns and cities. This decrease is also partially caused by the great increase in the urban popula- tion, due to the fact that many of those who come to us from foreign shores settle in the centers of population and enter the industries. Regardless of the cause of the decrease in the relative number of rural citizens, this fact stands out very prominent: That a smaller percentage ot' the total population is now living in the open country engaged in the business of raising food supplies than was so doing thirty years ago. This fact alone makes agriculture of importance to all citizens of the Commonwealth. The development of agriculture is then of interest to us all. Pennsylvania is usually considered to be an industrial State and as such is best known. But Pennsylvania also takes rank as one of the good agriculture states of the Union. It is a well known fact that Pennsylvania has in Lancaster County the best producing agricultural County in the United States. However, the agricultural possibilities of Pennsylvania. generally throughout the State are undeveloped. As a people we have much to learn concerning the inanagenlent ot' the soil and the control ol' soil fertility. Insect, pests and fungus diseases annually rob the farmers Magi' Dmrntg Uhrn 0 3- 0 -, -ur- 'Dis llagr Snrrniu Ifuur BOYS OF THE AGRICULTURAL DEPARTMENT 1 , of thousands of dollars worth of farm products and many of these common destroyers can be en- tirely controlled and the loss saved. 1 c Agricultural Colleges and Experiment Stations throughout the country and the United States Department of Agriculture have done much towards bringing to the attentioii of the farmers a large amount of scientific agricultural information of great value. Our own State College has been a great factor in developing agriculture in the State of Pennsylvania. Hundreds of young men from all sections of the State have availed themselves of the splendid training at that Institu- tion. There are, however, scores of young men on the farms who never go away to school. It has long been felt that they should have an opportunity to receive some agricultural instruction. As a result of this increasing demand, Agricultural High Schools have been established in several sections of the State. In sections where successful High Schools are already in operation, Depart- ments of Agriculture have been attached to these High Schools. In these Agricultural Schools and Departments an agricultural course extending through four years is offered to the boys of the rural community. The complete course has been established in Mt. Pleasant Township High School. This agricultural course is so arranged that one-half of the boys' time is spent in the study of academic subjects, to give him a thorough education, and the other one-half of his time is spent in the study of practical subjects. The practical work consists of a study of soils and soil fertility, poultry raising, farm forestry, farm crops, vegetable garden- ing, farm book-keeping, dairying, orcharding, farm management, etc. Shop work, including foraging, is also included. The projectwork is an essential part of the training. Each boy carries on some agricultural project each year. A project may consist of raising an acre of corn, half an Slug: Brnmtg Ziliur Hag! Brnmtg Six AGRICULTURAL RECITATION ROOM . Z acre of potatoes, care of a iiock of chickens, or some similar line of work. Project work is carried out on the home farm usually where it is under the daily observation of the boy's parents. The Supervisor of Agriculture in the school gives the boy assistance throughout the year with his pro- ject work. A daily record is kept by the boy of all activities in cormection with the project, in- cluding receipts and expenditures. It takes three or four years to develop this type ot' education in any school to a point where it begins to be very eliicient. Too much must not be expected in the first two or three years. Later as the school developes there will be a larger enrollment of boys taking the work and the school will have a more complete equipment. The minimum equipment only being put'in the iirst year. One phase of the work that will in the future prove to be very helpful to a community is the short courses offered in the Wintei' to boys and young men who are beyond school age and the evening courses offered to farmers. Farmers' Institutes and other agricultural meetings are also conducted in these schools. As all this work is developed the school comes to serve the whole community in a much more complete manner than ever before attempted. SYNOPSIS OF CO URSE. First Year. Second Year.

POULTRY RAISING-The course in Poultry Raising consists of lectures and recitations on the egg, its construction, composition, fertilization, incubation, and brooding, poultry feeds and feed- ing, poultry h.ouse construction, insect pests and parasites, and common poultry diseases. The laboratory work is an essential part of the course. In the laboratory a careful study is made of the different breeds, methods of preparing poultry for market, such as killing, picking, cooling, packing, etc., caponizing, and judging. FERTILIZERS-The work of this department includes a study of manures, fertilizers and amend- ments as affecting soils and crops, fertilizer materials, availability of fertilizers, methods of mixing and applying, and means of determining fertilizer requirements of crops and soils. Careful at- tention is given to the arithmetic of fertilizers. FARM Fomssrnv-The course in Farm Forestry is arranged to teach the principles of forestry as applied to the care and formation of the Woodlot, relation of forestry to agriculture, wind- llugr Brnmtu Nita 112192 Eishm CLASS IN FORESTRY x. breaks, shelter-belts, and forest plantations, collection, storage and planting of tree seed, estima- tion of board feet and cordwood, methods of preventing decay of fence posts and shingles. Careful study is made of the various trees in reference to their adoption and use. The practicum work consists of field excursions and laboratory exercises. This includes a careful study of the habits of growth, the identification of trees by leaf, bud, twig and bark, insect enemies and diseases of forest trees, estimating timber, wood structures, methods of thinning, natural and artificial reproduction. V13cE'i',xn1,1: GARDENING-Vegetable gardening is the study of gardening with reference to the growing of garden products for commercial purposes. The course includes the management and construction of hot beds and cold frames, starting early vegetables under glass, sowing and plant- ing in the open ground, systems of cropping, methods of tillingg garden irrigation, grading, packing, and marketing: Particular attention is paid to the selection of varieties best adapted to meet the demands of the trade. SOILS-Soils and Farm Crops cover the principles of the origin, formation, classification, pro- perties and management of soils with particular reference to crop production. The apparatus for soil work includes soil tubes, balances, thermometers, besides microscopes, which are also used for work in farm crops. In addition, there are collections of soils, seeds, and farm crops, appliances for testing seeds, and some provisions for water and gas on the laboratory tables. T The laboratory workin soils and crops includes a number of exercises in soil physics, the mechanical analysis of soils, and some experiments in pots with soils, fertilizers, and plants. On Nag: Etglpm Un: A POULTRY RECITATION ling: Eighty Glam the farm crops seed testing and grading, comparison of types of cereals and forage crops, and a variety of pot experiments are carried on. The crop work in connection with soil study is carried on out of doors to a larger extent than in the laboratory especially where arrangements can be made for carrying out the work through the growing season. The crop work comes under project Work which is carried on by each boy on his home farm. FRUIT RAISING-This course is designed to cover a study of the origin and history of our culti- vated fruits and of the varieties best adapted to the home and commercial orchard. Practice is given in describing and identifying varieties, fruit judging, and placing exhibits. The course also includes a study of the methods by which plants are propogated, germination and testing of seeds, hard and soft wood cuttings, grafting, budding, propogation by division and layerage. Careful attention is paid to pruning and spraying. FARM ANIMALS-This course is so arranged as to give the boy a working knowledge of the principles of animal husbandry. The course covers a study of the breeds of horses, cattle, sheep and swine, principles of breeding, stock judging, stock management with reference to sanitation and hygiene and a consideration of the common diseases, feeding practice, recitations on the princi- ples and practice of feeding including function of feed, physiology of digestion, and feeding for different purposes, practice in compounding rations, mixing feeds and actual feeding when pos- sible. ORNAMENTAL GARDENING-The course in Ornamental Gardening consists of a study of the fundamental principles of the art and the most common plant materials used. Together with the Nag: Eighty Uhrn Hag: Etghtg Haut BOYS IN FARM SHOP WORK Z practice in designing and planting the student is made familiar with what to plant and where to plant it in order to secure the most effective results. The aim of the course is to cultivate in the student good taste and judgment in beautifying the home surroundings. The care of the campus is given to the students as practical work. FARM Cnors--The subject of Farm Crops necessarily follows the course in soils and is designed to give the student a thorough knowledge of grain, forage and root crops. The different crops such as corn, wheat, oats, timothy, clover, alfalfa etc., are taken up and studied under the follow- ing heads: origin and description, classification, importance, soils and fertilizers, preparation of the soil, preparation of the seed for planting, planting and cultivation, disease and insect enemies, harvesting, selection and starting of the seed, marketing and returns. SHOP WORK-The course in Shop Wo1'lc aims to teach the correct use of common wood work- ing tools. A complete set of carpenters tools is placed at the disposal of each individual of the class. Proper methods of their use and care are demonstrated. The student is taught to make many simple articles which are very useful 011 the farm. Before taking up the wood work the student is taken to the drawing room where the work is completely outlined and a detailed drawing made of the proposed design. Furthermore the student is not only taught how to make pencil sketches and drawings but is given an opportunity to trace and blue print his work. This gives the student a thorough drill in drawing room standards and practices. A completely equipped drawing room is provided for the above work. FARM M ECHANICS-TlllS is taught with a view of familiarizing the student with modern farm machinery and land drainage. Farm engines and tractors, farm implements and machinery, and ilagr Eightn lliiut Fug: Eiglgtg Six CLASS IN SOILS LABORATORY 1, farm drainage are the subjects covered in this course. A, special study of these together with prac- tical demonstrations of new machinery is given with a view of determining the efficiency of these machines under local conditions. An endeavor is made to give the student a working know- ledge of modern labor saving devices on the farm. AGRICULTURAI, PROJECTS-Project work is an essential part of the course of study. It fur- nishes the opportunity to connect the work of the school with the life of the farm, for the projects are carried out on the home farm rather than at the school. This co-operation of the school and home inc1'eases the efficiency and service of the former a11d brings it in closer touch with the daily home activities of the pupils. The projects under way at the present time are corn growing, poultry raising, hog fattening and vegetable gardening. P FARM ll'lANAGEMENT--T110 work in this course consists of lectures, recitations, references, practice on farm methods and practices in various countriesg history of agriculture, choice of a farm, types of farming, size of farm as related to type, capital, equipment and labor, crop rotations, cost of producing crops, requirements of live stock, etc. TI'IE TEAeu1zR or AGRICULTURE is employed the year around. His summer work consists of supervision of project work and instruction in connection therewith. His assistance is as freely given to boys who are not enrolled in the school but are carrying project work, as it is to those who are enrolled in the school. Slug: Eighty Drum I X I ' KN' IH ' f V .

Commercial training in this country shows a phenomenal growth, attracting the attention of educators and securing the support of the foremost business men. ln fact, the change in public sentiment and the widespread adoption of tl1e central idea of commercial training have affected a change in High School and college'curricula. The main cause lies in the fact that this is essentially a commercial and industrial nation. Even the agriculturist is becoming more and more a business man, and the day laborer finds commercial training a stepping-stone to something better. Hence the rapidily increasing demand for trained men and women in every avenue of business. The aim ofthe commercial department in the High School is to present to its students a thorough explanation of the fundamental principles of commercial work and to fit them for busi- ness pursuits. I The complete course covers a period of four years. Besides the regular commercial branches taught, at least two academic branches are required each year. The academic training which the student receives gives him a thorough training. in English, Mathematics and I-listory, branches which are essential to a thorough knowledge of business. llagr Eighty Nia: Yi Nags' Ninrtg COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT-Book-keeping and Banking Section SYIIOPSTS of C OUTSC.

Elective History Detail of Branches J INTRODUCTORY BOOK-KEEPING The object of the Theoretical Book-keeping Department is to present to the student a thorough explanation and illustration of the fundamental principles of bookkeeping. The instruction is indi- vidual in method and illustrative in character. The student is carefully drilled in the fundamental and scientific principles of double entry book-keepingg the forms of all classes of commercial paper, as notes, drafts, checks, bills of exchange, bank drafts and receipts. After a thorough drill in journalizing, posting, making out statements, trial balances, and the methods of closing the different kinds of ledger accounts, including constant blackboard illustra- tions, the student is passed to more advanced work. Fug: Ntnriu 49:12 Fug: Ninrig Uma COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT--Stenographic Section PRACTICAL BOOK-KEEPING. There is only one way to learn book-keeping and business work, and that is through experience. Such experience is furnished in the Actual Business Department, where business principles are taught by requiring each student to put them into actual use. Furthermore, the student is required to make out all papers and go through all forms neces- sary to complete the work. ' COMMERCIAL LAW. While some schools devote very little attention to this subject, here it is considered one of the important branches. Only those topics are taken up, however, which are of interest and use to those in business life. Some of the subjects treated are contracts, negotiable papers, agency, part- nership, corporations, liens, interest and usury, law of partial payments, bankruptcy, wills, mort- gages, deeds, conveyances of real estate, et ceterag the aim being not to make lawyers, but to teach the essentials of the law so as to enable one to fully protect himself or employer. RAPID CALCULATION. ' It is a well known fact that boys and girls just entering high school do not possess an adequate knowledge of arithmetic sufficient to carry on business transactions. For this reason it has been deemed advisable to introduce into the regular commercial curriculum a course in Rapid Calcula- tion. In this work the student receives a thorough drill in all of the fundamental arithmetical operations involved in business. Nag: Ntmtu Zllhrn PENMANSHIP. ' Every merchant or tradesman in search of a bookkeeper, stenographer or clerk asks for a specimen of the applicant's handwriting. Very often the applicant fails because he cannot write a good, legible hand with speed and accuracy. The person who writes well secures the position in preference to all others. Skill in penmanship depends not so much on correctness of letters as the movement with which they are written. Unless the movement be free, bold and untiring, penmanship loses its beauty and value. In this department care is taken to develop skill in a free, easy and rapid movement, giv- ing zest and pleasure to an otherwise laborious task. In his instruction the head of this department aims to combine theory and practice, but the student is made to understand that the art is acquired through practice. STENOGRAPI I IC DEPARTMENT. The Stenographic Department has one of the most complete and thoroughly practical courses to be found in any school. It seems that many commercial schools are striving to see how short and easy they can make the course. The ability to write 100 words a minute in shorthand and operate a typewriter is not all that is required. In order to secure the best positions and command the highest salaries, one should have a thorough knowledge of the commercial branches listed in the outline and spend considerable time on the regular academic work offered. The complete Commercial course, leading to graduation, requires four year's work. fag: Ninety Inu: Opening Exercises. . Omce. ..... !. Programme of Mt.

The study of Expression and Dramatic Art rightly pursued a11d intelligently guided tends directly toward self-knowledge, enabling the student to co1'relate his own experience and his own thought to the universal life of humanity. Into whatever field of activity a boy or girl may be called, he should be able to embody his ideas --to bring them into eltective demonstration. This school aims to cultivate in the student a facility and forcefulness in presenting l1is own thought to others. The teaching of Ural English iq. v.J is to free the student 's voice from false habits of speech and manner, from self-consciousness, from inertness and from fear, so that his expressive agents may become obedient to mental activities. Furtliermore, to waken the student to a consciousness of his own spiritual possession, to a realization of his heretofore dormant activities, stimulate tl1e natural unfoldment of the mind, he is given special instruction in Dramatic Art. The staging of plays is now so universally demanded in high schools, colleges, and universities, that training in dramatic art is considered a very important part of the school curriculum.

A Note on the Grade Schools At the time of the erection of the first High School building in the township, ten years ago, there were 1600 boys and girls in the township within high school age. The numbers have in- creased until at the present time there are more than 2300 children in the grade schools. The number of pupils in the various grades is as follows: First Grade .. Second Grade Third Grade . Fourth Grade Fifth Grade . Sixth Grade . Seventh Grade Eighth Grade .. .... 568 ....388 ....346 .. .... 372 . .... 225 .... 204 .... 150 ....120 ling: Our iunhrrh aah Jtftg lllhrn- lag: Gln: iliunhnh anh Jiftq Inu: A MODERN GRADE BUILDING-UNITED SCHOOL Building Nearing Completion. f' In 1904 a class of 9 boys and girls was graduated from this department. Interest and enthu- siasm grew steadily, new work was added from time to time until, as a result, in 1914 a class of 54 boys and girls was awarded diplomas. The graduation of so large a class, as compared with the class of 1904, gives some idea of the rapid growth of the schools. The following recent advanced steps in education in our district have aided materially in keeping the boys and girls in school until the work of the grades is completed, namely-modern buildings, improved heating, Ventilating, and lighting systems, better grading of schools, well trained teachers, higher salaries, closer supervision, special teacher of Penmanship, longer school term, and the splendid opportunities now offered to those who desire High School training. All of these have led tl1e pupils to look upon their school work with pleasure and to consider their going to school an opportunity and advantage and not tl1e task of fulfilling the School Law. The manifested enthusiasm on -the part of the patrons in general speaks well for our grade schools. The cut shows a modern type of grade school building. It is the most completely equipped school in the district. The building and equipment comprises: four class rooms, an office, library, and two finished rooms in the basement, all of which are lighted with electricity and heated by the new vacuum vaper type of heating plant. The most scientific principles of heating, Ventilating, and lighting are carried out. Approximate cost, 9511,000.00. Huge wil? iunhrrh anh Jfiftp lin: ""'rxS KTW' ff' F -' ., ,n A4,.. ' N. X 1.
