able leadership of Elder Robbins, chairman
of the Board, has maintained the high moral
and scholastic standards of the school.

would give character to the work." Many
of the leaders in the work today are gradu-

VVhen we secured the services of
Miss Esther Bruck, our preceptress

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.

ID Robert Edwards
Can you imagine Mount Viernon
Academy without music? Cr imagine
giving a program without the orches-
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

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.
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-

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.
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

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
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.
Mr. Charles Carter is the man in
charge of the M. V. A. puffery. He

Another sign of M. V. 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

ever have such an even division.
Nevertheless, the quality of this

though vve cannot all be leaders, and
occupy offices, We can be Winners.

This year the faculty has granted
the Sophomore class

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.

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.

from which to choose when we enter

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.
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
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.

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

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.

fathers not only enables us to face

to express himself by its use. The an-

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.

Hlivery new language, a new soul"
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.

True expression is always remem-
bered by Public Speaking students as
an inward sentiment finding its way

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
The orchestra is scheduled for
greater heights in the years to GOING-
Do not fail to join it when you come.
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
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.

"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-
"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"
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
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.

The business staff of the "Treasure
Chestn and C'Spirit of M. V. A.,', this
year is composed of seven students.
They are as follows: General Manager,
Marvin Midkiffg Business Manager,
lack Liintner, Assistant Business

tion Manager, Kathleen Lovell, As-
sistant Circulation Manager, Marjorie

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-
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.

evening, from 6:45-7:45, a very fitting
Way to usher in the Sabbath.
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
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
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.

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
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.
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
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
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 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.

The "Columbia Union Visitori' and the

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

The Large Washer
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
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
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 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.
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
farm machinery is not torn up as it
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
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
