Health and Safety Promote Good Habits,
Before a student can be graduated from Pl-IS
he must complete courses in health and safety.
One semester is devoted to each subject.
ln safety, students learn the mechanics of
driving a car, methods of parking a car in
tight spaces, and helpful hints on passing a
drivers examination test. Classroom study in-
cludes solving parking and passing problems,
learning to read road maps, and figuring mile-
age problems. The trainees view films which
demonstrate good driving as well as scenes
from many accidents. One of the usual require-
ments is a safety notebook which may include
pictures of a cars 'linsidesf' diagrams of defen-
sive driving techniques, and sketches of cars
of the future.
Health students learn the chief hygiene rules
and study the Basic Seven chart which gives
pictured examples of what should be eaten
each day for a Well-balanced diet. Cell draw-
ings, a skeleton, and films are used to stress
the best habits for keeping the body healthy.
Patiently describing the Basic Seven chart, Lindsay
Hagen tells classmate Steve Shafer how to eat his
way to health.

Experience Through Business Courses
The commercial course offers a great deal of
experience to the student planning to make a
career in the business world. Bookkeeping pre-
pares the student for jobs requiring accounting
skills. Typing and shorthand ftwo years of each
offeredl complement each other. Second year
typing is the transcription of shorthand into
typewritten material, with speed and accuracy

hand so that students may practice taking
material at various speeds. Witli training along
