The old Constitution has been preserved intact but the activities have increased. There are now six general divisions: Photography Biology and Science conducted by Fr. Adam' Radio and Electricity under Rev. Felix Pasko' and Biography directed by Rev. Ferdinand Bakinowski. Great progress has been made but even more is predicted for the future. The Photography Dept. has taught the use of various cameras the tech- nique of taking developing and enlarging pictures- Biology and Science students have done practical work in the Biology Laboratory while the Radio and Electricity classes have conducted experiments in the Physics Laboratory studied code and made crystal sets. The records of all these doings besides being entered into the minutes have been printed for the public in the Bulletin. The big event for this year has been the 400th anniversary of the death of the scientist for whorn this club is named, Nicolaus Copernicus.

This is exactly what we did. To our surprise the orchestra most favored in the country opened up with Murawskis favorite piece since high school days Green Eyes. And to top this all off Murphy played a mellow solo on the saxophone which enticed us all to ecstasy. So I have ended my tour and believe me I think that all of our class- mates have chosen the right fields for their careers and are citizens that America is and will be proud of.
