Miss Iosephine Auld's talents do not end with her Latin I and English classes, for this well-liked newcomer to the Oakwood faculty coaches the junior high Lumberjill hockey team as well. Keeping the woodsmen well in hand in her Latin classes, Miss Georgia Baker often holds some timely and educational "pow- wows" which vie with Caesar and Virgil for first place in the minds of thoughtful Lumberjacks. Mrs. Richard Latham directs the commercial de- partment. Loggers completing a typing course under her supervision have left the two fingered hunt-and-peck system far behind. Deep-voiced Edmund L.
