The objectives of the club were to foster interest in photography among the students and facultyg to provide them with a useful as well as interesting extra-curricular activity: to promote exchange of ideas, exhibitions of photographs, and contests, and to help improve the photographic work of the individual members and finally, to provide a means of keeping a permanent record of student and faculty activities, sports, etc. The officers of the club were: President, Paul Jean Reepg Vice-President, Harold Webb: Secretary, Fuller Franke: and Treasurer, Scott Ross. The club met every Wednesday during activ- ity hour and at that time heard interesting lectures on photography. The club became associated with the Camera Club Service of the Eastman Kodak Company, which sent out four interesting lec- tures with slides to accompany each on the fundamentals of photography. The senior members of the club did the photographic work for the annual and enjoyed this type of work very much. During the year several contests were sponsored by the club to keep interest up and also to give the mem- bcrs a chance to obtain a prize for the best picture obtained during the contest. Photography is an excellent means of developing the capacities of the individual through an activity so absorbing that it may be regarded as re creation. It draws upon many different Fields of knowledge, encourages intelligent observation and deduction, and provided a means of self expres- sion which, in some form or other appears later in every personality. The study of photography of- fers an excellent method of introducing simple and practical applications of certain theoretical stud- ies in chemistry and physics in a way which holds the interest of the student and tends to encour- age further investigations. As an introduction to physics, it may be used to illustrate the principles of reflection and refraction, the properties of lenses ani the formation of images, and many other things. First Row: E.

This year's enrollment was 85, an increase of 10 over last year's group. The club met for work during the activity period four days a week with twenty to twenty-live boys working each day. Electricity, woodwork, metal work, archery, and models were the most popular hobbies. Two social events were held, an initiation party in the fall, and a river party in the spring. This year for initiation the boys had to wear wooden ties and also had to carry corn cobs in their pockets. The Archery Tourney created a lot of interest with about twenty-five boys taking part. A trophy was given to the winner of the event. The club attended the 1940 Electrical Engineering Show at the Uni- versity of Illinois on March 29, and found it very interesting. The officers elected for this year were Harold Webb, Presidentg Richard Worcester, Vice-Presidentg and James Laugel, Secretary-Treasurer. Mr. Young was the sponsor. First Row: G. Warfel, D.

We had forty members who elected the following officers: Jean Laugel, Presidentg John Schuch, Vice-President: and Juanita Kibler, Secretary- Treasurer. Our regular Thursday activity hour programs were full of interesting and amusing skits, talks, and demonstrations given by club members. At Hallowe'en, we sponsored an all school masked party. We gave a Leap Year Party on March 18. The big event of the year was the all school play "Growing Pains," which we sponsored on Feb. 21. The following day we gave a surprise party for Miss Harney in honor of her birthday and presented her with a gift. On May 16 and 17, we completed our year's work by sponsoring the senior play, "Young April." 'S X:-4 : we . V v. ' t' H- a. . -if' X . t e i -v- 3 3 F V W 1, .. M K .n- 4',c',.

Of course we do. Every- one of us is eager to learn more about Mother Nature, and that is exactly the reason we have developed a natural science club. It was tried out in 1939 and was found to be very successful and interesting. Because of this, we are ad- vancing it this year with the idea that the students will know more about nature and develop their own initiatives. The club consists of 21 members each of which has a project of his own to work on Some of the students have chosen more modern projects such as the growing of sollless garden while others are getting leaf butterfly and birds nest collections An aquarium and terrarium are being made too along with a host of other projects STUDENT FOUNFIL The newly organized Student Council has progressed a great deal since its be ginmng the latter part of last school year It is an organization of students designed to promote the welfare of the school The primary purpose of the council IS to advise and assist the principal and faculty in the conduct of school affairs It supervises the bulletin board recreation inside the building during the noon hour the book exchange and the activities calendar It also sponsors the assembly programs given each week By far the largest council project is the publication of the annual Newton Community High School Handbook The Handbook is designed to acquaint new and present stu dents and their parents with all phases of their school The officers of the council were Wilford Pulliam President Virginia Connor Vice President Victor Kibler Secretary George Bevis Treasurer and Scott Ross Dale Wiyatt Wayne Jones and Norma Short members The sponsor is Mr Gruene wald GROWING PAIN?"

The group consisted of two types of members, those who had never taken a Home Economic subject and those who had taken a Home Economic subject. The ones who had taken a Home Economic subject were the only ones eligible to hold an ofiice. The following people were chosen from that group as office holders: Catherine Dhom, President: Bessie Clark, Vice-President: Lois Bayles, Secretary-Treasurer: Janet Ross, Publicity Chairmang Geneva Winter, Song-Leaderg and Gertrude Doepel and Evelyn Smithenry, Program Committee. At this meeting a general talk was given on Home Economics regarding the fees, which were ten cents a semester, general activity, and a description of Home Ec in the past. The club was scheduled to meet activity hour every Monday of the first week of the month besides the night meetings. At one of the first of these night meetings, the new members were initiated by the old members. After the fun of feeding them "fish worms" and making them do various other things, the more solemn part of the initiation was carried out by the beautiful and impressive candlelight pledge service in rainbow colors. The most interesting of the other night meetings were the Leap Year Party, to which the F.F.A. boys were invited, and the Mother and Daughter Reception. At some of the activity hour meetings, interesting talks were given on the care of the hair and nails, and actual demonstration of the use of cosmetics was shown to us. The style shows were something which all of us valued too, because in these we were shown the proper types of clothing to wear for different occasions and the kinds of clothing worn in different countries.
