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.

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.
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
This year Noblesville l-ligh School

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-
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
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-
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.
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.
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
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."
