Lease, seizes this oppor- tunity to place itself on record before the classes disband for ever. This spirit of helpfulness has been dis- played in the numerous activities that are a part of school life, particularly in connec- tion with the Young Peoplels Missionary Volunteer Society, the Boys, 3 "I" Club, in teaching, in his preceptorial duties, and in that spirit of kindly consideration even when the necessary discipline has had to be applied, so that all will long remember him for his very 'kindness' sake so long as Mount Vernon Academy shall remain in their minds. So, with pleasure, we respectfully dedi- cate this issue of "The Treasure Chest, 1937" to HAIRQLID lf.

Every club or organization has to have leaders to keep it out of chaos. This section of the book represents the leaders of Mount Vernon Academy, the leaders in the threefold purpose of our own school - the training of the head, the hand and the heart. Un the opposite page you can see the Local Academy Board, which, under the able leadership of Elder Robbins, chairman of the Board, has maintained the high moral and scholastic standards of the school. In the following pages are the leaders who, day after day, are in constant contact with the student and guides him upward. ln other words the teachers are to take the place of our parents while we are here at school. Mrs. E. G. Wfhite said that "M. V. A. would give character to the work." Many of the leaders in the work today are gradu- ates from Mount Vernon Academy which is the training school for LEADERS. E llgobbins Great success has crowned the ef- forts of Elder E. H. Robbins as chair- man of our school board. Before coming to Mt. Vernon Elder Robbins has been the president in VVest Virginia, Wlest Pennsylvania and Chesapeake Conferences. This iS the second time he has been Confer- ence President of Ohio. v For twelve years, from 1920, to l932, Elder 1.R'obbins was chairman of the 'board at Wfashington Missionary College. He was also one of the seven members of the managing staff at the Vlfashington Sanitarium, For thirteen years Elder Robbins was President of the Union Confer- ence. Through his untiring labor and ceaseless efforts the honored traditions of our Academy and our school spirit have been more firmly established. V. llqovell Professor V. P. Lovell, our prin- cipal and business manager has proven himself to be the students' best friend. His year of loyal serviceiand cheer- ful guidance has been an invaluable aid in helping the students maintain the high standards of M. V. A. He received his A. B. at Union College and his A. M. at Indiana University. Before coming to Mt. Vernon Acad- emy, Professor Lovell was Educational Superintendent in Missouri and Mis- sionary Volunteer Secretary in Kan- sas. He was principal of Enterprise Academy and also Indiana Academy for four years. Professor Lovell, by his wise coun- sel and by his genuine interest in the students and their activities, has pro- moted M. V,. A.'s spirit of progressive- ness. icharcl Farley- For four years Elder Farley has been associated with the Mt. Vernon Academy Where he has been our Bible teacher. He received his A. B. degree at Wfashington Missionary College, and his M. A. degree at the University of Maryland. Before coming to Mount Vernon Academy, Elder Farley Was Bible teacher in the Shenandoah Valley Academy. He was a worker in the New Jersey Conference in 1923-1925, and he was Chaplain at Washington Sanitarium in 1925-1929. He was also a member of the faculty at Wfashing- ton Missionary College in 1929-1932. Elder Farley has been the minister of the Mt. Vernon Church for the past four years. lfVe have learned to 'know him as a sympathetic friend, and a large measure of the success of the 1937 "Treasure Chestm can be attri- buted to Elder Farley's helpful advice on literary matters. F A Harold ll". lame Professor Harold Lease, our pre- ceptor, mathematics andl science teacher, has been dearly loved by every one during his four years of faithful service at Mt. Vernon Acad- emy. As he himself was one of the students here at the school, he is well able to understand the local difficulties and problems. He graduated from N-Vashington Missionary College in 1926, receiving his A. B. degree. He also has attended the Capitol University., Columbus, Uhio, and Qhio State University. In 1926-27 Professor Lease was Principal of the Reading Intermediate School at Reading, Pennsylvania. In 1927-33 he was Dean of Men, and Science and Mathematics teacher in Qshawa Missionary College. Ushawa, Qntario. As preceptor he is very capable. and the boys love him almost as dear- ly as they do their own fathers. l L T sther llgruck VVhen we secured the services of Miss Esther Bruck, our preceptress and foreign language teacher, we were indeed fortunate. Miss Bruck spent the first sixteen years of her life in Europe amid its many languages. Therefore she was well prepared to teach the foreign languages not merely from the liter- ary viewpoint but as spoken languages. Miss Bruck attended Elizabeth Schule and Obelyzeum in Hanover, Germany. Wfhen she came to Ameri- ca, she Finished high school and junior college at Broadview. She spent three years in Atlantic Union College and received her A. BQ in modern lan- guages. She taught two large French classes this year and also conducted a very interesting Erench Sabbath school class. Miss Bruck also has charge of the library and, with the help of several girls, has made many improvements. Afllargaret llbiymire Mrs. Margaret Plymire, the acad- emy's English and commercial teacher, is one of the products of M. V. A. Mrs. Plymire was graduated from Mt. Vernon Academy in l924. From Mt. Vernon she went to W'ashington Mis- sionary College where she took a sum- mer school course. Next Mrs. Plymire went to the University of Pittsburgh, where she majored in English, Com- merce, and German. For the past hve years Mrs. Ply- mire has been teaching. Eirst she taught in Erie, Pennsylvania, next in Lynchburg, Virginia, and now she is back again at Mt. Vernon Academy, this time as a member of the faculty. Hier work here has been greatly appreciated by all the student body, while Mrs. Plymireis quite well-known thoroughness will be reproduced in those fortunate enough to study under her supervision, and will ensure them success as they follow her splendid example in all things. yn. 15. Kelley A writer has said, "A faithful friend is better than goldf' Right he is, and Mrs. Phyna Kpelly is just that faithful friend, only she more than fills the place of gold. Mrs. Kelley completed her high school education at Bethel Academy. Having chosen the commercial course for her life work she went to Southern junior College, where she continued with this ambition. Later Mrs. Kelley attended Emmanuel Missionary Col- lege. Wfhile here she majored in Com- mercial and minored in Expression. Mrs. Kelley obtained her first posi- tion as Registrar and Commercial Teacher in Adelphian Academy, Holly. Michigan. Her next call was to Em- manuel Missionary College where her work proved so satisfactory she re- mained for six years. After an urgent request, Mrs. Kel- ley came to Mt. Vernon Academy. Aside from being Registrar she teaches Bookkeeping and Public Speaking. Tn F A Mrs. V IP. Lovell f'Drive away sorrow with music," is the motto of Mrs. V. P. Lovell, who is the beloved and efficient piano teacher of Mt. Vernon Academy. Mrs. Lovell was graduated from Bircli Tree High School in Missouri. Following her graduation, she went to Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska, where she majored in music and elocu- tion. She obtained her first position in Mounteer, Missouri, where she taught music and elocution. Her next call was to Enterprise, Kansas to teach many students the art of Hticklingithe lvoriesfi Cicero, Indiana was to be the next stop for Mrs. Lovell. There, through her efforts for them, many students have her to thank for their ability in playing, This year M. V. A. students are fortunate to have Mrs. Lovell as H member of the faculty. She plays for the orchestra, chorus, and does much of the accompanying for special muSiC- C L T ID Robert Edwards Can you imagine Mount Viernon Academy without music? Cr imagine giving a program without the orches- tra? ' Vxfe feel greatly indebted to Prof. D. R. Edwards for the success that the Music department has had this year. Prof. Edwards attended the Peabody 'Conservatory of Music, and received his A. B. at Wfashington Missionary College. He was violin instructor at VV. M. C. in l923-26, then director of the music department in the Canadian junior College in l9Z6-27. For three years he supervised the orchestras in all the junior High schools in VVashington, D. C. Before coming to Mt. Vernon, he was Music Director in Southern Junior College. Prof. Edwards teaches two music classes: Harmony, and Rudiments of Music, which are very beneficial to students who want to make music their life work. He has also proven himself a very capable violin instructor. l lljaul fhpplegate Paul Applegate, the superintendent of the print shop, is another one of Mount Vernon Academy's products. Hle was graduated from the academy in l926 and from here went to Wfash- ington Missionary 'College He spent a number of years there, working in the college press, and generally gain- ing a great knowledge of printing and getting valuable experience, which was to fit him for his lifeis wor.k. Mr. Applegate returned to Mount Vsernon, where he taught linotyping in the College Press. His good work and his reliability soon enabled him to be raised to the position of foreman of the type room. For a time he served in this capacity, then was promoted to the 'office of assistant manager of the press, and from there to his present position of general manager. ln addition to his numerous other duties, Mr. Applegate takes an enthu- siastic part in the making up of the C'SpiritH and the Annual. Anna Aldridge They say, Wfhe way to oneis heart is through the stomachf' so judging by that, Miss Anna Mary Aldridge must hold more hearts than any one in, out, or about M. V. A. Wfhy? Be- cause she is the matron. Miss Aldridge hnished her academic work, and took one year's Bible course at Southern junior College. She then went to Berrien Springs where she en- rolled for the Dietetics course. She completed this in 1926, and was gradu- ated from the collegein 1928. She obtained her iirst position as matron and Home Economics teacher at South Lancaster, Mass., where she remained for six years. Her next work was at Cfraysville, Tenn. Here she served as precep- tress, matron, and Home Economics teacher. After a year of hard work at Grays- ville, Miss Aldridge came to Mt. Ver- non Academy to be matron and Home Economics teacher. D F A Quy Nevv'ion MUncle Guy" - the affectionate name used in all honor and respect is an M. V. A. product in the truest sense. Mr. Guy Newlon became the farm manager of Mt. Vernon Academy in 1936. 1-le has done much to build up the agricultural industry in the school. Mr. Newlon took a business course at Wfesleyan College, XVest Virginia after which he entered the Michigan Agriculture College to specialize in agriculture and dairying. Later he was employed at the F1 A. Barnette Sons Dairy, producing the highest quality of raw milk for the city of Detroit. Later he worked at the Firestone Farms in Akron, Qhio taking care of the test cows. He was later hired as herdsman of the W7hite Swan Farm. Wlith all this experience Mr. New- lon has come to Mt. Vernon Academy, to build up the farm and dairy, and to teach the students the real science of farming. L T Ii-f2lRcy Applegate LeRoy Applegate is the teacher of theory and practice in printing. He was 'born at Cape May Court House, New Jersey. Lee, as he is commonly known, graduated from Mt. Vernon Academy, 1931. Hie is foreman of the press room, the stock room, and the bindery depart- ments. He has twelve boys working for him now, and eighteen students are taking the printers course under him. Liee has had a great deal of ex- perience in publishing annuals. Six years ago, the Mt. Vernon Academy faculty said that there was to be no annual put out that year. However Lee thought that there should be one, so he took the responsibility of putting one out himself. So with the hearty and speedy co- operation of the senior class, he had the copy set, the advertisements in and the annual ready for delivery in eight days. Thus the record was not broken of having an annual every year. Cl WGVTQS Czarter Mr. Charles Carter is the man in charge of the M. V. A. puffery. He is the one who runs the huge machine which puffs the Moverna brand of wheat, rice, and popcorn. Mr. Carter, although originally from Mt. Vernon, belongs in heart to Trinidad, where he labored for a few years in the book work, and was also in charge of the Home Missionary Department. Previously to this time, he and his family had spent three years in British Guiana, Mr. Carter being the Held secretary in that district. From Trinidad, Mr. Carter return- ed to the States, Wfest Virginia, name- ly, and served in the colporteur work for two more years. Finally, he made his headquarters at Cicero, Indiana, where he made his acquaintance with Prof. Lovell and his family, Wfhen the call came from Mount V-'ernon for someone to take charge of the puffery he answered it and arrived here in July of 1936.

A more fitting or a more appropriate group could not be found to represent this section than the Student Association, for it repre- sents everyone in the school. K Mount 'Vernon Acade1ny's first attempt to have a student government, has proven itself to be a success. Lawrence VValling- ton was the fortunate one to be chosen as president of Mount Vernon Academy's first Student Association. At the beginning of each school year the student body elects a corp of officers to serve for one year, and each class elects a fellow classman to represent them in the Student Government. The purpose of this organization is to build up the school, both educationally and morally. To do this, it sponsors various projects such as the publishing of the "Spirit of M. V. A," and the "Treasure Chest," by electing the officers for the Spirit and Annual staff. It also sponsors a nre department for the prevention of fire. 1 SENII IR Mrs, Phyna E.

She always had a great love for the out-of-doors. Evelyn also enjoys playing the piano and she wants to become a nurse. Florence Robinson was born on November l6, 1918, in Zanesville, Ofhio. Elorence's height is an asset to helping her be a good player in basket ball, which is her favorite sport. Get- ting autographs is her hobby and she plans to go to Lincoln, Nebraska, next year. The Cincinnati Church School claimed Margaret 'Roth as one of its pupils for nine years, after which she came to Mt. Vernon Academy. Wfhile attending church school, Marge gained the name Hcheese cutter," because of the peculiar way which she swung a bat when playing baseball. She was born in Cleveland, Ohio, january 23, l9l8. . Olive Russell, the brown-eyed, black haired girl from Cincinnati, was born on November l, l9l9. She has a good alto voice and she wants to 'take up singing as a vocation after she graduates. Anyone can tell when Olive is in the crowd by her hearty laugh which rings 'out above all the rest. ,Olur Vice-President, Anne Szasz, was born in the little city of Arad, Roumania, November 20, l9l9. Her parents brought her across the wide- ocean to America when she was but a year old. After spending part of her childhood in St. Louis, Missouri, she moved with her parents to Cincinnati, Ohio, which is her home at present. Anne has always enjoyed sports, es- pecially baseball and tennis and she loves reading and music. Some day she hopes to graduate from colleO'e as a Registered Nurse. D Ethel XN'est was born on a wintry day in December, in Bradford, Con- necticut. Although she is not the old maid type, Ethel has a great liking for cats. She is a post graduate, having been a member of the senior class of '36, Hfer hobby is roller skating and she enjoys secretarial wor.k. Known as the smallest girl in the class is Dorothy Wfoods, born March Sl, l9l9. Dot was born in Croaksville, Ohio, and her education was equally divided between the public and the Church Schools. She enjoys bicycle riding and likes to keep pets. Dot wants to become a commercial teacher. Ethel West Dorothy Woaods E tl ll R junior Class Oflicers President ..... George Movvry Vice President ..

Afs steady growth lt For the first time in the his- tory of the Mount Vernon Academy there is a Junior class of forty-Five members. Then, almost as unusual as the large membership, is the unique manner in which the class is divided between the boys and girls. Wfhen the juniors made their chap-el entrance. twenty-two boys and twenty-two girls followed the banner carried by the Sergeant-at-Arms. V'ery few classes ever have such an even division. Nevertheless, the quality of this year's Junior class seems quite to over- shadow the quantity, impossible as this 1 4 X' L' Q I 3 may seem. Leaders in every phase of school activity are to be found in the junior class. Among the religious leaders of the students, Alfred Chilson, George Mowry, Florence Conger, and Clara Wfolcott are prominent. Look at the honor roll of any period or semester and you will always find the names of Margaret Zettel- meyer, Gene Hackleman, Anna Farley, Annetta Bihlman, and Adriel Chilson near the top. Also all the musical organizations are dominated by Junior musicians. Some of the most popular ones and their special lines are: Violin-Robert Borrowdale, con- sidered the best student violinist at M. V. A. . Piano - Betty Johnson, Ardyce Coon, Esther Cole, and Miriam Myers. Piano and violin-Kay Lovell. Vocal-Bob Metcalf, james Eaton, Christopher Hiel, and Mary Zervos. Both of the major offices at the academy seem to prefer junior girls. Annetta Bihlman works in the business office, and Dorothy Hoffer works in the press office. Featured in missionary endeavor are: Lawrence Pulvers, Secy.-Treas. of the Tourney Center church, a newly organized branch of the Mt. Vernon church, and james Taylor, who assists the leader of the church. The academy fireman, Clarence Thompson, and the school truck driver, james Eaton, are both Juniors. Numbered with those whose ser- vices are considered invaluable at the press are: Gene Hackleman, the most efficient linotype operator, and LeRoy Summers and Donald Crumley, press room workers. Lack of space prohibits a complete sketch of the entire class. If you want to know each member better, come down to M. V. A. next year. iultis a good place to be."

Our class contains more than one student who possesses fine leadership ability. Some are leaders in school activities such as the Studentls Asso- ciation, Prayer bands, and clubs. Even though vve cannot all be leaders, and occupy offices, We can be Winners. Everyone desires to win. lt is a line feeling to be on top, to be first in vvhat- ever we try to do. There is a place and a Work for each one of us. Each day opportunity stands outside the door, and bids us rise to fight and Win. Once vve have vvon, new opportunities will come to us which will help us to rise higher on the peak of success. This year the faculty has granted the Sophomore class M E S , permission to organize underclassmen. The Sophomore class has organized and we have chosen as our officers: President, Ben Leach, Vice-president, Helen Collins 3, Secretary, Hortense Mooreg Treasurer, Clayton Kelly, Sargeant-at-arms, Stewart Bainum, Faculty advisor, Professor H. FQ Lease. Under the leadership of such com- petent officers, our class is certain to accomplish much. Of course. the leaders cannot by themselves achieve a great deal toward the upbuilding of our class. It is the cooperative atti- tude of each member that will make the Sophomore class just what it should beg and what we all, by Work- ing together for the good of our class, can and will make it. Wfe are proud to be Sophomores, even though we arenlt quite as far ad- vanced as the juniors and Seniors, We all realize that every one must begin on the lovvest rung of the ladder of success, and vvorfk up. VVorking up is better than sliding down, it may not be speedy, but it is certain.

Q S After leaving grade school and en- tering Mount Vernon Academy, the Freshmen have quite a change. ln the grade school we sat all day long' in the same room, with the sane teacher, and about fifteen minutes al- lotted to each class. XYhen we entered the academy, it took us a few days or several weeks to become accustomed to forty-five minute periods with a change of teachers and classrooms for the various subjects taught. Wie have two countries Caside from the United Statesj and three states represented in our class, Our departed member, Ruth Morris, is from China. and NN'ilfred Robinson comes to us from Mexico. They are both children of missionaries who are in this country on furlough. Wle have gi good list of subjects from which to choose when we enter as a student in the ninth grade. New Testament History presents itself not only as an interesting, but also as a very important subject. lt takes up the life of Christ as well as the history Of the early Christian church until the time of john the Revelzltor. EN English is one of the outstanding subjects of our education and we have English I in our first year. Wle study the use of grammar, we learn how to give short, interesting talks and how to write compositions. Business Training, heretofore not taught in our academy, has proven to be a very beneficial subject in that it prepares us to meet the world in a business-like way. Algebra is another one of our re- quired subjects. lt proves to be very interesting to some, while to others it is boring and tiresome. As electives we have household arts, typing, linotyping, and printing, which help to develop the practical side of life. i This year the Freshman class counts eleven members. Even though we are small in number we are doing our part to boost M. V. .-X. and uphold its standards and principles. President . ......... XfX'alter McCall Vice-President ..... ..

The school session starts at 7:30' oiclock and continues until 12:35, when We eat din- ner. The Work period starts at 1:30 and lasts until 6 o'clock, when supper is served. Evening worship is at 6 :45 and study period starts at 7:30. The lights go out at 9:45 at which time everyone retires. The following 'pages present that part of the student's life that means more to him than anything else-the classes in the school session. The pictures in this section were taken when the students least expected it, and it shows them in the midst of informal class discussion. The picture chosen to represent this section has been named "The Hall of Fame" with the boys and girls chosen by the student body. The hall is the owe that connects the chapel and the class rooms. Through ,this hall the students pass on their way from commencement to life's Work. ,4..... 1 usvmzm 1 The Bible Doctrines Class The History i Class ible llboclrincs llislory 8:15 again! Yes, this is the Aca- demic Bible Doctrines Class. Every day, a group, composed largely of seniors, comes to this class-room where Elder Farley teaches us the principles of the belief of the Bible. This con- sists of a study of the creation, fall of man, plan of redemption, the word and lan' of God, the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation, closing events of the worlds history and other like Bible subjects. Consideration is also given to the study of health, temperance, the home, and many questions that arise in such a class. Any one who has the privilege of taking this course of study considers himself fortunate. lt is a course from which many benefits may be derived, both for our spiritual and physical well- being, here and hereafter. Studying the mistakes of our fore- fathers not only enables us to face intelligently present day conditions but also prepares the way so that we may act wisely upon future issues. Many are the improvements and con- veniences made possible -by the untir- ing efforts of the builders of the nation. ln the ascent and decline of every nation is seen the Qverruling Hand of the Almighty Cine. A most striking evidence of this fact is that in the full- ness of time "God sent forth His Son," when all nations of earth had been united into one vast empire.

The an- cient Greeks had their beautiful lyresg the savages, their tom toms, as com- panions in joy and sorrow, peace and war. WVe, in this age, need music to attune ourselves to our various ex- periences. To fulfill this purpose, the music department of M. V. A. offers every advantage to the musically inclined student. Professor Edwards teaches all orchestra and band instruments, Organ, harmony, and rudiments of musicg Mrs. Lovell teaches the piano and marimba. lf any one slogan points the way to success in music it is "practice makes perfect." Physics is the oldest and most fundamental of sciences. It is the story of manls slow release from ignor- ance and superstition. lt traces through the centuries his increasing ability to control the forces of nature. Perhaps these questions that arise in the Physics class will provoke some deep thinking. How heavy is the air? Do you know why ice forms at the surface rather than at the bottom of a lake? Wlhat causes the roaring' sound heard in a seashell when it is held close to the ear? Vlfithout a knowledge of physics we could not live intelligently, or fully appreciate the wonders of the world in which we live. An understanding of this subject is practical and even necessary in this age of increasing knowledge. like The Library The Typing Class Library yping Practice Ralph Waldo Emerson has said, "AS-DF space ASDF'."

Mount Vernon Academy's Library is a good place for students and teachers to acquire the desired know- ledge of books. ln the Library there are twenty- hve hundred books, including 3 com- plete set of the Americana and Bri- tanica encyclopedia, Bible commen- taries, and assorted lot of history re- ferences and also current journals. The Library offers an opportunity for students to get experience in libra- ry science.

A sp-eed of 45 words per minute is re- quired at the end of the year's work. Ths year, under the guidance of Mrs. Plymire, several students have been awarded certificates for ,reaching higher speeds. At the end of the year a typist should be able to type dictated busi- ness letters, telegrams, personal letters and any form oi manuscript with speed and accuracy.

A close relation exists between the modern languages of today. One whose understanding' is limited to one language or the customs of one people, lives, as it were, in a small apartment with only one window. ln the French class we have learned many interesting facts about the cus- toms of the people of France. Stone roads built by Roman engineers more than two thousand years ago are still in use, and used by modern vehicles. Today the French language is gain- ing' a place of eminence in the civilized world. A wealth of art, literature and domestic life is opening to faithful students in our French classes. A laiid once veiled in mystery is unfolding to reveal its reality and attractiveness. lf while passing through the hall- way of Mt. Vernon Academy the sound waves carry the words, f'Gln, Stanley, Unlu '4Charge, Chester, Charge l" go and visit the room where the most interesting class given at the Academy, 'fPublic Speaking." ln this class you learn to express yourself before the public. Also how to color up the words with true ex- pression, and paint pictures with them, not letting them fall meaningless into space. True expression is always remem- bered by Public Speaking students as an inward sentiment finding its way outward. The modulation of the voice and the inllexion of the tone are im- portant features. Action is also im- portant, it consists in gestures attitude and bearing. 39 l i ,W f ff i Q XX I N l l The Orchestra. Students of M. V. X. regard the orchestra as one of the most interest- ing and important features in their academy life. Much interest in its progress is displayed. Members lof the orchestra cooperate heartily ii making the orchestra a success. This year the academy has placed the responsibility of the music depart- ment under the able leadership of Pro- fessor D. R. Edwards. He is very capable leader of the orchestra and under his direction the orchestra has grown. Professor Edwards previously taught in Southern Junior College. He has boosted all musical activities, of the school especially the chorus and orchestra. His wise choice of composi- tions has broadened the students sense of music appreciation. The library of music for the orche 1- tra has been enlarged during the past year. The music was chosen with the object in view to educate the students' minds along musical lines. Such com- positions as Schuberts "Unfinished Symphony," "Victor Herbert's Favor- ites," "lYilliam Tell," "'Ruy Blasf' "Symphony in G-Minor," and "Gw- pheus, are but a few of the pieces which have been mastered this year. The members feel that they have im- proved their musical talent immensely under such excellent tutelage. Every Monday and Thursday after- noon at ive o'cloc'k, students are seen hurrying across the cam-pus toward the administration building. After they have taken their places on the platform and tuned their respective instruments, they begin their practice, each one putting his utmost effort into his particular part. fVfarious trips have been taken dur- ing the school year. The orchestra gave three public concerts. Such ap- pearances help- to increase the students' poise and self-assurance before all audience. At each one of these, many difficult compositions were played- The listeners expressed their sincere appreciation for such excellent pro- grams and stated that the improve- ment in the organization this year is very marked. The orchestra is scheduled for greater heights in the years to GOING- Do not fail to join it when you come. Q NlZA Cur able music director this vear is Professor D. R. Edwards, who coimes to us from Southern Junior College. He lives for his music and is advancing farther each day to success. Besides being chorus and orchestra director, he is violin and organ instructor. Music appreciation is being de- veloped in all of our colleges and acad- emies. Professor Edwards has really put his whole heart and soul in the work of strengthening our music de- partment so that it will be the out- standing school of music in the de- nomination. Wfe did not have separate Glee clubs for the boys and girls this past year but, instead, had a splendid mixed Chorus. There are about sixty members in the chorus, twenty-five boys and thirty-five girls. Another interesting quality of the music department was the organiza- tion of a library of music. No music was sold to the students. lt is filed in leather-bound notebooks, each book containing about three dollars worth of music. The school spent about sixty dollars for this chorus music alone. Every member of the chorus es- pecially enjoyed the trips. The first trip was taken February 6, to Colum- bus. Three numbers were sung for the Sabbath service. Another trip was made to Cleveland, April 10. They gave a progam in the Hough Avenue and Lakewood churches and returned to Mt. Vernon late Sabbath afternoon. Although the Cvlee Clubs of the two past years made rather long trips, they considered that it would have been a rather difficult problem to make pro- vision for sixty students to stay over night in the homes of the church mem- gers. Therefore, they started in the early morning and returned in the afternoon. The annual concert was given the latter part of April. This was a huge success. A large crowd came out to hear the results of Professor Edwards' untiring efforts. The chorus succeeded in working up the "Hallelujah Chorusu which is a beautiful but very difficult piece to master. Some other selections were "Listen to the Lambsf' "The Lord is Exaltedf, "My Task," "VVhen Wfinter Comesf' "Coin' Home," and a number of others. The Chorus T ll S l ll "Say, june, is your assignment ready yet ?" "Not yet, Bob. l can't get the re- quired amount of words. How can l find 300' words on such an uninterest- ing subject?" "VVell, youill just have to apply yourself.. We have to fill the paper, you know. And thereis no copy in the press for our next edition." Such conversations are quite com- mon around the campus at M. V. A. Especially is this true the Thursday before another copy of the f'Spirit" comes out. For that is the day when most of the write-ups are supposed to be handed in. Of course, this is not always the case, but on the whole the reporters cooperate very heartily to pass in their assignments on time. Perhaps you would like an inner glimpse into the work of the "Spirit" staff. First of all, the editor-in-chief and a few of his assistants get together two weeks before the "Spirit'i is to come out, and plan for the next edi- tion. They decide what articles should GU be in, and what reporter should write each Then the number of words for each article is decided upon and the assignments are handed out to the re- porters. These in turn are given enough time to write up their articles. Then the editorial staff is ready for action. The editor-in-chief collects all the articles and edits them, corrects mistakes in spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure. After the articles have been edited they are given to the typists. The material must be type- written in double space in order to ob- tain best results from the linotypist who sets the type. The feature articles are taken care of in the same way by the feature editor. He passes out as- signments, collects them, and edits them. A few galley proofs are taken, which are -proof read by one of the editoris assistants. After the mistakes are corrected in the type, and the "dum1ny', is set up, the "Spirits" are printed and ready for distribution. The circulation managers then pass these out to the students and mail the rest to the subscribers.

A.,', this year is composed of seven students. They are as follows: General Manager, Marvin Midkiffg Business Manager, lack Liintner, Assistant Business Manager, Betty Borrowdaleg Circula- tion Manager, Kathleen Lovell, As- sistant Circulation Manager, Marjorie llouseg Advertising Manager, LeRoy Summers, and Assistant Advertising Manager, Robert Borrowdale. p At the beginning of the school year the "Spirit', was enlarged. First, the business manager visited the College Press and got an estimate of the cost. Then he figured approximately how many subscriptions and how many ad- vertisements would be necessary. After this, a campaign was launched to se- cure subscriptions. The same pro- cedure was followed with th e "Treasure Chest," with the same suc- cess. V The general manager had super- vision over the entire staff. lt was his duty also to see that necessary funds were in hand. The business manager had to 'keep the books and see that all advertising was collected for and that all bills were paid. The assistant business manager helped him with his duties. The circulation managers saw that the "Spirit,' was properly distributed at the school, and the list properly ad- dressed and mailed. They also had to hx up any changes of address, and if some were not receiving the paper they had to adjust the matter. Every two weeks the -advertising managers visited their friends, the mer- chants in Mt. Vernon, and secured their advertisements for the school paper. They also solicited for "ads" for the UTreasure Chest." All the oflicers, not only of the business staff, but also the editorial staff must work together to make the school paper -and the annual a success. By their faithful work the "Spirit" has been enlarged and the subscrip- tion list was the largest in its history. The new, improved, modernistic Annual is also the result of much hard labor on the part of both the business and the editorial staffs. The members of the staff have labored hard to build up the "SpiritH and f'Treasure Chestf and hope that those who follow will be even more successful in this work. Kat 43 Tx Missionary Volunteer Officers Sabbath School Officers flissionary Voltin tears Sabbath School Four-thirty each Sabbath after- noon the Young People are gathered together for an hour, for the purpose of studying topics which are of spe- cial benefit and interest to them in pre- paring for a part in Gods work. Several times this year surprise visits have come from returned mis- sionaries, colporteurs, and ministers. The students are always glad to hear the visitors as it brings to them a view of what is being done in our great work and also what is ahead of them as the future leaders of our denomi- national activities. This year the Missionary Volunteer Society has given its offerings to the building of the new greenhouses. The young people feel that their offerings have bccn made to a worthwhile cause. "Sabbath school begins promptly at nine twenty-nine, tomorrow. Are you listening? Remember the twenty- nine." Since there are nearly one hundred and fifty talented young people from which to choose those who shall take the various parts of the program, the results are at once distinctive and interesting. Some of the most interesting things connected with our school are that the mission reading, and the Scripture reading, are almost invariably given by members of the Public Speaking class. This certainly adds variety be- cause of the different ideas that the several students have of their part in the program. Then, too, the musical items are usually given by students. m fXNlZ!XllQNS QOi1DOl'lQL1F ligand linisteriai Seminar The students who attend the col- porteur band meetings on Sabbath afternoons carry avvay With them memories of pleasant and instructive hours. Membership in this band is entirely voluntary, and officers are selected from among the members. Visiting conference Workers, members of the faculty, and students who have had ex- perience in this work give inspiring talks. In addition to this, lessons in Christian salesmanship are given, so that students who feel a burden for this work may know how to approach people and place truth-filled books in their hands. To those students vvho are going out in the literature minis- try, the colporteur band gives invalu- able instruction. One of the most interesting features of school life is the Seminar, which is organized to give the young men and young women the concrete experience that they desire to lit them for the gospel work. The personnel of the Seminar is composed entirely of students, and the officers are elected from among this group. Each semes- ter a new corp of ofhcers are elected, this gives to more students the advan- tage to the get the experience of leadership. The seminar is conducted as a regu- lar church service, thus helping the students to come in contact with that which he will have to meet later in life. The meetings are held each Friday evening, from 6:45-7:45, a very fitting Way to usher in the Sabbath. The Ministerial Seminar The Colporteur Band CYS an Our Four Leaf Clover Club boasted a membership of a little over Hfty girls this year, and we have had some memorable times. Each Thursday evening we gather in the parlor for games or a program or a possible out- ing. Among other things that will be remembered from this years' school activities will be the time we too'k our supper of fried egg sandwiches, cocoa, and apples up on the hill: our program Christmas when several of the girls gave an interpretation of "Christmas Carolu by Dickens. That night we all gave gifts to our Friendship Friends, and Miss Bruck gave us each a 'box of candy. Wfe had a rythm orchestra one night with tin horns and tin pans -and it really played tunes one could recognize. There were many other good times when we played games, had guest performers from the Three "I" Club, or had "dorm talent" pro- grams. Sometimes vve had guest speakers or musicians, but we like to feel that our Club is "of the girls, by the girls, and for the girls." Our 'fFriendship Friendsn has been C LS sponsored by the Club, and I think every girl had some other girl who did not know who she was as a Friend. She did thoughtful things for this Friend to make her happieruand her day brighter. Maybe she made her bed, dusted her floor, or perhaps she had received a box from home with goodies in it - and so she shared it with her Friend. Miss Bruck is a very enthusiastic Club member, and she always has an idea to make meetings more interest- ing. Un Club nights she enters into the games, help-s on our programs, and 1na.kes herself indispensable in many other vvays-so the girls of next year's Club already have a good start toward a prosperous and thriving Four Leaf Clover Club. This year We have started a pro- ject-that of redecorating the parlor, refinishing the floors and completely re- furnishing it. Wfe have a good start Hnancially toward our goal, but the year closed too soon, and so We leave the money and the goal to the fine Four Leaf Clover Club of 1937-38.

A. these three 'TSM are to us as three watchwords. Let us consider each one separate- these three "Ins are to us as three are interested in making the best of our school days. Wife are interested in our school as a whole and most of all, in 'keeping with the Golden Rule, are interested in each other. The second is Inspiration. Wie, by coming here for an education have been inspired to live more clean, pure lives and thus be a help to others. Improvement, the third l, is that certain thing that all of us, no matter how perfect we may think ourselves to be, have much room for. Vlfe all want to improve that thing that once wasted is forever lost-time. Wie should all desire to improve ourselves, knock off the rough edges, so that we will not be so green and growing as when we entered as freshmen. Wfe also hope that when we leave the doors of this institution that we will not only have improved upon ourselves but that by 47 our influence we might feel that we have in some small way been a benefit to our fellow students. g The boys club meets every other Thursday evening under the able guidance of Thomas Geach, and in his absence Lawrence Wfallington is in charge. The secretaryis reports are given at each meeting by Gene Hackle- man or his assistant Christopher Heil. Order is maintained by Leon Paden ably assisted by LieRoy Summers. Shortly before Christmas th e treasury was badly in need of funds. Wle talked the matter over and finally conceived the ideaof making Christ- mas wreaths. Some boys gladly do- nated time to make them and others to sell them-. ln this manner quite a large sum was gathered in. Wie boys in all our activities try to measure up to these three watchwords. that were before mentioned. ln the programs the boys try to improve their amateur tlent. ln our work we show our interest. The inspiration "I" is a little bit neglected but that is just one of the many places where it takes interest to make an improvement. 135 QQ' iff t ' The things that make it possible for more students to attend Mount Vernon Academy are displayed on the opposite page and in the pages to follow. The indus- tries at M. V. A. provide an opportunity for every student to -earn part of his way through school. One of the largest and most promising of the industries is The College Press, where one may not only help himself through school, but also learn a trade which, in after lite will be a beneht to him. The Puffery is the newest industry and under the capable management of Mr. Carter, it has grown until we do not have the equipment to take care of the demand. Industries played an important role in the original plan of the institution, for, aside lirom the training of the mind and the heart, the Spirit of prophecy said that the school was to provide for the training of the hand. New industries are being added gradu- ally and, before long, we expect to have several others in operation. In the office Addressing the 6'ViSit0f', At the Inteffype THE PRESS The leading industry oi Mount Vernon Academy is the College Press. From fifteen to twenty students are regularly employed in the press. Some oi them in this way are working a large part of their way through school. The printing class and the linotype class are carried on in connection with the shop. From these classes each year, students who show capability along this line are picked to work in the shop. ln this way they can learn a very good trade while they are help- ing put themselves through school. Students who i have learned the printing trade here may go on to Wfashington Missionary College or some other of our colleges after leav- ing Mount Vernon Academy and work all of their expenses while in college. Mr, Paul Applegate is the manager of the College Press. He is an ex- perienced printer and linotype operator and is very capable of iilling this posi- tion. Mr. Lee Applegate is the fore- man of the press room and bindery. The salesman for the shop is Mr. A. B. Cole and he furnishes the shop with all the worlq it can handle. Mount Vernon Academy has a better equipped print shop than any other academy in our denomination. This year quite a bit of equipment has been added to the shop. Several new faces of type have been purchased and also a new job press. Wie are con- tinually adding to the equipment in order to compete with other print shops. NYe strive to constantly im- prove the work done by the press. Taking a Proof Sawing Lead Locking up a Form C Folding the "Visitor', Our Automatic The Cylinder Piess The "Columbia Union Visitori' and the school paper are both printed here. Most of the Work done is job Work from around Mt. Vernon. VVe also pub- lish several books a year. Near the close of the year the shop prints most of the annuals for the high schools in and around Mount Vernon. The outlook for the College Press is very bright for next year. Wfith its continually increasing volume of busi- ness and its additional equipment, it can compete with most any oi the other print shops around Mount Ver- non. Not only will it make money for the school, but it will also help many students work their Way through school, and in the meantime they will be learning a trade. In the Printing class the students learn the setting of hand type and the making up of jobs. This composing Work is given in the iirst part of the year. The second half oi the year is devoted to press room work. They learn during this time how to feed a job press and all about the press. They also learn something oi the bindery Work. Besides the regular class period each day, the printing students each have a practice period. In this period they practice setting up hand type and feeding a press. The linotype class is a very small class. Qnly four or hve students are allowed to enter it. In their class Work they are taught some of the various kinds of linotype composition and also something of the mechanical end oi the linotype machine. They also have one period a day during which they practice operating the linotype machine. mm Feeding a Job Press Trimming Paper Wrapping the "Visitor ,Mil- A Hopper of Puffed Wheat Gir1's Biagging Weighing and Sealing The Finished Products. THE llilollfflfl Stop! Look! Listen! Bang! What is it? Mount Vernon Academyls new- est and noisiest industry - The Puff- ery. Anyone coming within the vicinity of the Puffery, smelling the delicious odor of newly puffed wheat, and hear- ing the mysterious rumbling of machin- ery, cannot help being tempted to in- vestigate. Suppose you were to go inside as many have done. You would really be amazed by the efficiency with which this plant is operated. W7hite-clad students in all five of the departments go about their work in such a busi- ness-like manner that it gives one the impression that here is an industry that is rapidly growing. Even now, plans are being formulated, which, if they mature, will bring to Mt. Vernon some of the most modern puffing equipment available. A predominating feature you will notice as you continue your t0u1- gf inspection, is the amount of student labor provided by this industry, M 1-, Carter, the head of the plant, Qand also foreman of the Puffing dep-art- mentj employs a number of students in the manufacturing of the various puffed products. As you step into the bagging de- partment, you will see Ruth Murray and Hazel Tanner hlling celophane bags with puffed wheat from an over dead hopper. If you should follow Miss Murray as she takes the unsealed bags to the weighing and sealing de- partment, you would meet Clarabcllf? Davis, who weighs the bags to 1113146 sure that none are underweight, and Betty Sweitzer, who electrically seals the celophane bags. From here, yOU go to the shipping and packing depart- ment, where the 'bags are packed in cardboard cartons for shipment. The Mt. Vernon Puffery, besidtl supplying some of the foremost whole- sale houses in Qhio with puffed wheat and rice, furnishes the Academy din- ing-room with the major part of itS l?1'eakfast cereal. Wfhen you come to Mt. Vernon visit the Puffery. Preparing Dinner THIE lilltl 'll3N 77 '4How do you do? "Good morning! May l look through your dep-artment P" "Certainly, I'll be glad to show you through. This room, of course is the dining room. W'e serve ll5 students six at each table. The host, hostess waiter, and waitress perform their various duties at the noon meal, which is served on the American Plan. "Here is our serving room from which we serve breakfast and supper on the cafeteria plan. At the right are the two rooms w-here the dishes and silverware are washed. "Next is our kitchen, which is usually full of activity from early morning until rather late in the even- ing. Gui' work table is in the center. "Vile make our own bread, about 300 loaves a week, whole wheat, and occasionally white or raisein, and cin- namon rolls. Miss Garnette Kiehl is our baker. This time-saving electric mixer is a great convenience. In the right hand corner you see the girls 'doing tinsf Notice our large stove andvoven. The girls say the stoves and pots and pans at home seem like toys, after they have worked in this kitchen. "Here are our store rooms. In one we keep stap-le goods and cereals, while in the other we keep fresh fruit, vegetables, and canned goods. This cookie cup-board contains boxes of cookies, which are a very important item in our bag lunches. These are served on Friday nights instead of supper, to eliminate the usual evening work. This is especially nice in the winter when Sabbath begins so early. This room to the left we call 'the ice- box room,' as we have no better re- frigeration. VVe are looking forward, however, to a better refrigeration system as soon as we are financially able to obtain one. This should -be quite a saving for the school in preserv- ing foods, which we can not do now with the existing system." f'This has been quite interesting to visit through your department, and l appreciate your taking the time to show me through." "You are quite welcome, lfm sure." The Large Washer The Maytags Sorting Clothes The Ironers THE LAUNDR Approximately thirteen students are employed in the laundry depart- ment of the academy under the able direction of Mrs. L. Johnson. Many have often wondered how the laundry is operated. It is the most interesting industry in the school. lt is a pleasure to Work there. Every Saturday night the laundry is collected by our laundry boy, George Zervos. Early the next morning the clothes are sorted by the regular laundry girls. W ' Each girl has her regular duty. There are two girls operating the large washer and one girl at the two small washers. Several of the girls scrub shirt collars. This hand vvork gets the shirts much cleaner, for the dirt is loosened. Then after they are washed in the washer, they come out snowy white. As soon as the clothes are washed they are ready to be hung out to dry. lf the day is too cold, there are lines in the laundry which may be lowgfefl. We have a machine which blows them dry, also. After the clothes are dried they are dampened on special long tables built for that purpose. There are three ironers and three dress ironers to com- plete the laundering process. All the bed and dining room linen is done on the mangle. The laundry is checked after it is ironed. The girls' laundry is checked and taken up to a girl Who distributes it among the girls. The boys' laundry is placed in boxes-each boy having his ovvn separate box. Helen Collins is the girl vvho checks out the laundry. just lately the laundry tables have been painted green and covered with white oil-cloth. This improvement makes the room a cheerful pleasant place in which to work. Mrs. Johnson is very careful to see that every thing looks neat and order- ly before it is given out on Friday. lf the clothes need mending she sees that they are mended. Esther Hannum, l-lortense Moore and others do the mending each Vveekg All of the girls think that it is El Pleasure to vvork in the laundry be- cause Mrs. Iohnson makes things aS pleasant as she can. Farm Group THE IFAIRM This year the school farm has several things to boast of. In the past year, considering the dry weather, we had exceptionally good returns. Let us now go on 3 tour around the farm. VVe shall start at the top of the hill, to the north of the campus, as we enter the gate by the old apple tree, we see many changes have taken place in the past year. The old fence rows in the fields that were once grown up in under brush, have been cut down. The fields are now farmed in furrows, to prevent soil erosion The steep rugged land that slopes to the east has been turned into pasture. A bicf advantage to this plan is that 6 b farm machinery is not torn up as it once was. The land further to the north, is owned by Mr. Page. This year the school is farming that land. Wfe can see Mr. Garlock on the school's new F-12 Farmal tractor plowing for corn. The school purchased the useful imple- ment this spring. This year approximately fifty-five :acres of corn, ten acres of oats, and ten acres of soy beans will be raised, in addition to twenty acres of wheat which were planted last fall. Let us now go -back through the pasture to the campus. As we go through the gate at the foot of the hill, we can see boys sawing trees in the lane. This land, which goes to the barn, is 'being cleared to provide a shorter, quicker way to get implements and machinery to the fields on the hill. As we pass the plumbing room, we can see a row of implements in front of the building. Some are new, but most of them are old ones being painted and repaired for the coming year. Let us now go to the vegetable truck garden, which is located on Sycar road, about a quarter of a mile from the school. This field is known as the ten acres. The land is low and very fertile. Practically all the vege- tables such as potatoes, tomatoes, peas, etc,, are grown here. This com- pletes our tour till another year. Mr. Newlon our farm manager is improving the farm land, and making it possible for a better yield in the years to follow. . f. Milking Time lllrllli flylllw The Spirit of Prophecy tells us that agriculture should be the most im- portant subject taught in our schools. Therefore the Academy Dairy takes its place among the other departments of our school. Students learn more from actual experience on the farm than from studying the theory oi farm- ing lrom books. The purpose of the dairy is to give work to capable students who are working most oi their way through the academy, and to supply milk for the kitchen. Last year a new dairy barn was built by student labor under the direc- tion oi Mr. French. This barn was equipped with the latest conveniences. The Hoor is built in such a way that it can easily be cleaned. ln the sum- mer the Hoor is washed twice a day. The barn was built after .lameswav plans. There is only one storey to the barn but it is connected with the old barn where hay is kept. There are also boxstalls for calves and stanchigns fm dfl' COWS Ellld young cattle in this part. A short covered walk connects the dairy barn with an up-to-date milk- house. Pure spring water runs through the cooling tank in the milk house, at all times. There is also hot water with which to properly clean the milk uten- sils. Many years have been spent in improving the dairy. ln former years the herd was composed almost entire- ly oi registered Holstein cattle. Qfur new Holstein herd sire is Burke Forbes Salo, bred by the Everson Brothers, and bought by the academy in the spring oi l936. Hle is from very gOOCl stock. l-lis dam has two yearly re- cords oi an average oi 3.876 butter fat for one year and 39? for the 116X'f year. All oi his nearest dams have yearly records and test from 35? 'CO 3-SW fat with good milk records alsO- lYe also have a nice foundation for a purebred Guernsey herd. Two VCVY nice cows and a heiier calf are from the herd of Mr. Van Emman oi Elgilli Uhio. lt is through the untiring elliorts of our able farm manager, Mr, NewlO11- that the dairy has been built up. illlfl lll the next few years we plan to have 21 much bigger and better dairy. Picking Spinach lllrlli QREENlllQlUlSES The Greenhouse industry is being constructed at M. V. A. Two small units are being operated at present and three larger units together with a sales building on the main highway, are now in the process of construction. The Young Peoples Societies of Ohio, West Virginia, and Vlfest Pennsylvania are raising the funds to pay for them. After operating the greenhouses for a year, it was realized that they were not large enough to satisfy the Academy needs, so last fall, during the first week of school, six boys and Mr. French went to Springfield, Qhio. There they tore down three large greenhouses. Each, one hundred and twentyi feet long and forty feet wide. VVhen these are erected they will sup- ply the academy and others with plants and fresh vegetables. Tn the Greenhouses we are running now, we have lettuce and spinach tak- ing the leading roll. The kitchen has received over one hundred-hfty pounds of spinach and over seventy-five pounds of lettuce this winter, also small quantities of mustard, cress, and celery. The small greenhouse is devoted entirely to chrysanthemums of which we had over one hundred dozen last fall. The greenhouses have supplied two boys with work this school year, and they are small in contrast to the ones that are going to be built, in fact, they are hardly as large as one of the new ones will be. The work in the greenhouse is pleasant-summer is there all the year around. Think of it, working in a garden with the temperature outside near zero. There is but one unpleasant task about the work in the greenhouse, which is, firing the boiler till twelve P. M. and getting up at three A. M. but this is only necessary when it is extremely cold out doors. Even this is not so bad when you get accustomed to it, but don't think you will ever get accustomed to it. The new greenhouses will be a great asset to the Acadmey, and they show the spirit of our farm manager, Mr. Newon, which is, "press on and upwardf' 1 ' 71:- J -...
