Students Orientated with Future Teacher Careers F uture Teachers of America had a successful and rewarding second year. FTA offered much to students who hope to pursue a teaching career, a most fulfilling vocation, and one of the leading occupations of our nation. The club offered information to these future teachers on the different possibilities in their future career In addition to the monthly meetings, this club participated in the organizational assembly at the beginning of the year, and contributed to several charity drives. With the thought in mind of encouraging the FTA members to enter the teaching profession, films and speakers were presented and proved a great aid to students. In order to learn what other schools do and thus gain new ideas for their organization, several Future Teachers of America association members attended a district convention. Here they met with members from all over the state of similar future teachers organizations. This enabled them to get new suggestions for lectures and films and other meeting programs. The sincere desire and cooperative spirit displayed by FTA members made it clear that this worthy organi¬ zation is here at Rocky to stay. lob w ood.

Future Nurses Aid Nurse in Rocky School Clinic FlTl RE Nl RSE’S SPONSOR Mrs. Matilda Bacon shows the proper method of dressing an injury. Many clubs at Rocky offered entertainment along with practical experience in future careers. One such club was the Future Nurses of America. Here girls not only found activities which interested and educated them but also many new friends all interested in medical careers. The Future Nurses combined practical experi¬ ence and fun in many activities designed to help the community. Among these were the practices of helping to collect money for Christmas seals and the Heart F ' und, and of supplying food for needy families. Members gained information about their future careers through lectures, demonstrations, and visits to local hospitals. Future Nurses members served as assistants in the clinic which now includes the recently added boys’ clinic. They aided the school nurse, Mrs. Bacon, with one girl per period. These girls, however, are best known to the student body as the people who sell Rocky High book covers. These red and gold book covers were sold twice during the year, at the beginning of the school year and at the start of second semester. 148 FUTURE NURSES

The Future Homemakers of America club promoted interest in homemaking activities while giving the girls some social experience in club activities. The club helped mold its members into future homemakers, providing enjoyable activities at the same time. At the annual Christmas party, which the FHA sponsored, the girls filled Christmas baskets with food for needy families in the community. All the members participated in the decorating of a Christmas tree which was kept in the living center, lighted, the entire week before Christmas. This added greatly to the holiday mood at Rocky and thus was a project of FHA for the whole school to enjoy. During the year, the future homemakers tried their hands at fashion and at cooking. The girls exchanged family recipes and even invented some new recipes of their own. The club meetings consisted of parties, outside speakers talking on topics of interest to the girls, and work meetings for the various projects undertaken. Since the chores of the home claim more of our nation’s women than any other career, the aim of FHA is to help each member to acquire skills in homemaking. BL ' SY . S BEES, the girls are learning how to sew, one of the important techniques of homemaking. 150 FITL RE HOMEMAKERS
