Number qt Things
"The world is so full of a number of things,
I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings."
To this end the Wilson School offers a variety of activities in the homerooms, the class rooms, the auditorium,
and even the halls, including such things as programs, contests, clubs, parties, and dances. These furnish the pupils
with a wide diversity of interests which indeed tends to E11 their world with "a number of things."
Glancing back over the school year of 1937-1938 our attention focuses on the auditorium as a center of programs
designed for instruction and entertainment. Some of these are contributed by the pupils themselves, while others are
brought to them by outside talent.
The holidays have afforded opportunity for developing the themes suggestive of each. Classroom teachers have
inspired members of their groups to plan and execute suitable programs for the celebration of such special occasions
as Book Week, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, as well as Commencement exercises. Many P. T. A. programs have
been augmented by the contributions of the members of the school. These include vocal and instrumental music num-
bers, plays, and demonstrations. The culmination of the programs was the Spring Musicale given May 24th, 25th,
and 26th, by the music department, which showed the intensive training in music fumished by Wilson School.
Representative of outside talent are the following: a lecture on "Alcohol Education" by Mr. W. D. Bailey from
the Y. M. C. A.g an illustrated travel talk by Mr. Roy Snell from the Detroit Newsg a recital provided by Grinnell
Brothers, introducing the Hammond organg and a mock radio program given by Mr. Legassey and a group of West-
ern High School students, some of whom were former Wilsonites.
Pupils have participated in various city-wide contests which include different grades as, the Spelling Bee for the
seventh and eighth grades sponsored by the Delroit Newry the Patriot Speech Contest sponsored by the Louisa St.
Clair chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Allied Youth Essay Contest on the subject "The
Increase in Accidents Due to Alcoholism," which was limized to the nine-A classes. In the Spelling Contest the sev-
enth grade winner was Lois Kirby, 7A'303g Jimmie Neubacher, 8B-308, was the eighth grade champion, and Mary
Morris, 8A-215, was the representative of Wilson at the Intermediate School Contest. Jack Briley, 8B-308, won the
Patriotic Speech Contest and Ruth Kubla, 9A-228, was the winner in the Allied Youth Contest.
The contests featured within the school itself include friendly competitions for P. T. A. membership and attend-
ance at the regular meetings, perfect attendance at school week by week and for the school year, ticket-selling drives
for different school functions, the sale of Christmas seals for the Red Cross and those at Easter time to aid the crippled
children, and the securing of advertising for and the sale of Quillx.
The clubs may be divided into two groups: those whish are organized with the idea in mind of contributing
directly to the success of the school, and those which afford an opportunity for the "worthy use of leisure timen in
developing talents and particular interests.
The homeroom is the place where all boys and girls have a feeling of belonging in a particular way. The home-
room teacher is the one to whom they turn for direction and advice, who seems a bit better-known to them perhaps
than the others. The homeroom houses a group of which they are a part and which affords them an opportunity to
develop any powers of leadership they possess and the best possible characteristics of citizenship. The members ofthe
homeroom group use their ingenuity to plan weekly schedules for the homeroom periods and occasional parties which
satisfy the desire for social events and draw the class a little nearer together.
Along with the regular classroom work, these numerous activities and contributions tend to E11 the world of the
Wilson family very full of worth-while things and to bring that happiness which should be the valuable possession
