Business Education Dept The trainees of the Business Education Department, who have been taug-ht to keep accurate ledg ers, take efficient dictation and pound the typewriters unerringly, will occupy the desks and swivel chairs of to¬ morrow’s offices. This year’s Sophomores could elect a year or semester of Typing, and a semester of Personal Records. The same was offered the upperclassmen, in addition to electives of Bookkeeping I and II, Business Arithmetic- Business Law and Stenography I. Exclusive¬ ly for the Senior, Clerical Practice and a two- period Secretarial Training course was available. Overhead projectors came into substan¬ tial use this year throughout the Depart¬ ment, while the acquisition of several IBM Selectric typewriters augmented that course. CARRIE EKBLAD, B A..

Miss Joyce Sholl guided the school’s first French IV class through their new texts. The German language had its stu¬ dents at the first and second year level. First through third year Latin students made forays into the Roman heritage. With the heaviest enrollment, the Spanish Depart¬ ment again earned laurels in the National Spanish examinations. After hours, the four language clubs fostered an extracurricular interest in respective countries and cultures. i i KATHRYN CALLIHAN. B E.. Wes¬ tern Illinois University; M.A..
