Industrial Arts Department The Industrial Arts Department at Roek Island Senior High School is composed of four divisions. These divisions are: machine shop, woodwork, mechanical drawing, and printing. In the woodworking classes, students studied the use of hand tools and machines. Advanced students use more complicated ma¬ chinery and tools. Sophomores in Machine Shop I learned the fundamentals of lathe work. Three new lathes were acquired this year replacing ob¬ solete machines. Students are graded on vari¬ ous things including tests, safety, written work, and the quality of their work. The main responsibility of the advanced students of the Print Shop was the printing of the Crimson Crier which is issued bi-weekly. Students also study the different parts of the Print Shop. In the Mechanical Drawing classes, stu¬ dents are taught to do layouts and drawing plans. DISPLAYING STUDENT ' S handiwork to interested parents at Open House is in¬ structor Don DeTaeye.

Mathematics Department Subtract one and add three, and that ' s the unequal balance in this year ' s mathematics department. Unfortunately, the depart¬ ment lost one teacher, who was taking a leave of absence in order to fulfill the requirements for his Master ' s Decree. But to counter¬ balance this situation, three new teachers wc re hired. The Math Department offered the students of Rocky a wide variety of courses. The courses ranged from classes in the funda¬ mentals of algebra and geometry to the complexities of trigo¬ nometry and college algebra. One project that the trigonometry classes undertook was concerned with the new addition to the school. In class the students calculated how much dirt would have to be removed for the construction of the new building. Then, by using a transit, they saw how close that their calcula¬ tions were.

Ed., M.S., Physical Education, Assistant Eoothall Goach Physical Education Department This year, the hoys experienced mass exer¬ cising. The hoys, covering the entire gym floor, listened to the resounding commands of Mr. Green. No new equipment was purchased this year, hut several improvements were made in the old equipment. Much to the dismay of the senior hoys, they were not offered a swimming course this year. However, the undt ' relassrmMi were granted pool privileges. Intramurals were offered through the gym classes to provide ex¬ tra activities for the boys. The girl ' s physical education department offered a stimulating and varied program of fitness and fun. Activities included basketball, softball, tennis, soccer, archery, volleyball, rhythm, recreational games, and swimming. This year the department purchased the necessary apparatus for a course in gymnas¬ tics. This offered a new innovation in exercise to the girls, who at first found it a trying experi¬ ence. The course was taught by Mrs. Brent and Mrs. Lange. JAMES JOHNSTONE, B.4., Phy¬ sical Education, Assistant Football Goach. Girls Golf Goach ROBERT J.
