ART This year's classes were devoted to getting a good foundation in art. Points stressed particularly were perspective, rendering, and water color technique. In connection with the latter, moving pic- tures were shown demonstrating the water color styles. Very interesting to all art students was that time devoted to crafts. Any craft that was of particular interest to the indi- vidual could be made. Some of the pro- jects were airplane modeling, ship model- ing, clay modeling, study of interiors, wood work, and the painting of salad bowls. Class projects were water color painting, lettering, poster work, and ad- vertising problems. The climax of the year's art work in all the schools was the art exhibit and tea given under the direction of Miss Sartor, the art teacher. The decorations were carried out in a Greek motif. Greek col- umns were erected and overhead was a canopy of leaves. ln this enchanting set- ting were displays, the works of Nobles- ville's younger artists. IUNIOR BUSINESS ln Iunior Business a student gets a general introduction to business. Problems and lerrns of bookkeeping are stressed. The class decided to take up the study of various occupations and Miss Davis, their teacher, gave them guidance in that particular phase of business that was de- sired most. ln this case transportation and and selling were stressed. This study of types of business gave the students a taste of what they might like in the business world. A person in the business field must know his arithmetic and spelling, so spe- cial drills in these two essentials were giv- en at least once a week. A very worth-while and interesting project instituted by the class this year was the making of work-books on trans- portation. 'lhese information-giving books were then sent to the Riley Hospital in In- dianapolis to be enjoyed by the patients there. lt is hoped that such an important project will not be discarded. TYPING A requirement for the stenographer is typing, so the typewriters are always busily clacking away in the typing room. Lessons must be learned, typed, and handed in. Special standards are set up each six weeks for students to meet. The first six weeks the basis for grading is volumes of lines. A certain number of lines are re- quired to pass and all over add that much to the final grade. The second six weeks the grade basis is errors. Here precision and accuracy are developed. No mis- takes per day is B+, one is B, two is B, three is C, and four is a D. The amount of typing paper wasted is only understood by those who have tried for top grades. The third six weeks brings an increase in volume ol lines required. Also used to determine grades are the speed tests given each Tuesday and Thursday. The person with the highest number of lines and with one or no errors receives a medal for that day. The second highest gets a medal, too. The ten people having the highest speed averages be- come part of the "Big Ten."

Boris Livres lveril Libri Boni Wvunl V E GLISH anal LA GU GE SPEECH The people who elect to take speech the last semester of the senior year real- ize that the question is not whether they are going to speak or keep silent: but rather HOVJ they are going to speak- well or ill. Such a class is usually com- posed of two typesp those who enjoy speaking and grasp every opportunity for experience, and those who realize their own need for improvement. The course is introduced with a study of voice and a recording is made so that the student can hear his own voice. lt is a general prac- tice to have each student on his feet ev- ery other day. The senior play centers at- tention around drainatics for several weeks, but the last days are spent on kinds of informal speeches a person may need to use at any time. Each student has responded to the common need for better speech and has taken a step forward in a genuine spirit of friendliness. BROWSING What book do you want? May we help you get it? Our librarians are well trained. For one-half credit a semester they are re- quired to take periodic tests and keep a well-ordered library. Their special duties are to mend books and magazines, get them ready for the shelves, catalog them, and check the shelf lists. Miss Mary Campbell is head librarian and advisor to the capable assistants. A new project instituted this year was the St. Patricks Day tea. The public librarian, Miss Lulu Miesse, and a mem- ber of the faculty were guests speakers. Invitations were issued to the faculty and one fellow student of each librarian. It is hoped that this will set a precedent for future events to center social as well as business interests around our library. ROMANI HODIERNI The Latin Club, sponsored by Miss Wood, is an extra curricular activity dev signed to give interesting and valuable information. Material not discussed in class is touched upon in the club meetf ings. A program is planned for each meeting. This year Noblesville l-ligh School was very fortunate in again being repref sented in the County Latin Contest. Kay McLaughlin and Mary Ruth l-larnish placed first and second respectively to advance to the District Latin Contest. The officers of the club this year are: Consuls, Paul Robinson and Martha Kaiser: Scribe, Mary Ruth l-larnishy Quaesf tor, Bill Buck. FRENCH French as Cf part of the curriculum was introduced two years ago. lt is a favorite language in the school. ln the beginning, French stories are read and words studied. Many of the stories demonstrate a new language rule. Others are historical anecdotes of great interest. At the end of each unit the stu- dents study interesting landinarks and great men of France. The distinct twang of the French lan- guage is studied. This peculiarity sets the language off as distinctive and beautiful, As in the English language so in French, parts of speech and tense must be studied, understood and remembered. Conjugation of verbs is extended from the beginning course. ln advanced French a novel was stud- ied, "Without a Family." This project was much enjoyed by the class, and proved a great impetus to the study of the lan- guage.
