A new Electronics course was inaugurated during the past year. The specific purpose of the course was to train students in fundamental electronics principles which would be useful either on the job or In the home. The old band room was converted to house this new addition to the Mechanical Arts curriculum. Other courses available to the Mechanical Arts student included machine shop, printing, woodworking, and mechanical drawing. In which architectural, machine, and sheet metal drawing was done. Field trips to several local Industrial complexes. In¬ cluding John Deere, were available to students who wished to take advantage of the excursions.
