Sponsor Miss STUART
. HE Mathematics Club has completed its third semester. At the begin-
ning of the year, Miss Nora Stuart became the Sponsor The club had
a membership of fortv five
The club was formed, not with the idea of creating an interest in the
subject of mathematics particularly, but to show how mathematics permeates
all branches of everyday life. With that idea in view the programs were planned
to have something of an educational value and to provide recreation, too,
so that the student might see that mathematics is not such a dry subject after
The first meeting was a demonstration in Cookie Making. A paper
was read by Miss Stuart showing the correlation of Mathematics with the
Art and Science of Cooking. Frances Woods gave the actual demonstration
of the process of making the cookies, calling the attention to the mathematical
forms in the equipment, the ingredients, and the process. The artistic side of
mathematics in this project was illustrated by mounted pictures cut from
magazines, showing beautifully arranged table settings, and a series of artistic
breakfasts, luncheons, and dinners. These were explained by Marguerite Jack-
son, Lucille Garton, and Thelma Rodman. A poem Learn to Keep House was
read by Audrey Hayden. Tea and cookies were served by the hostesses, Ruth
Davis, Rose Chambers, and Pauline Campbell.
The second program was, also, a very interesting one. Mr. Musser gave
a talk on The Signs of the Zodiac in which he explained the mathematics
of the solar system, and the supposed effect of Zodiacal constellations on the
character of a person. The boys were quite anxious to know their achievement
and personality colors, as well as their successful fields of work.
The third program was a very practical talk on The Matheznatics of
the Naval Academy at Annapolis by Mr. Frank Reynolds, vice-president
of the Board of Education. Mr. Reynolds, who is a graduate of Annapolis,
emphasized the necessity of accuracy and thoroughness in Mathematics in its
application to naval training.
At the last meeting of the first semester, Bliss Cochran spoke on the
Relation of Mathematics to Art. Another interesting program consisted of
a dress show in which the application of mathematics to dress design was shown.
As a whole, the club has vividly portrayed mathematics in everyday life.
