It's true that the first impression of the word suggests tre- mendous battles ,hard work, and even heartaches, yet perseverance is neces- sary in even our everyday life. A school problem, a family' crisis, or a community project can all be overcome by a little perservering effort. Many tirnes things will go Wrong and we will feel that there is nothing to do but quit, but if we endure and persist, the pain and heartaches will tu!1'n to joy. , Our nation owes its existence partly to the perseverance of our forefathers. How successful would they have been if they had not persisted in battling the hardships which constantly faced them? It is said that the conditions of conquest are always ea-sy. We have but to toil a while, believe always, and never turn back. This is exactly what our forefathers did, and truly their pain and heart- aches turned to joy. The ability to press relentlessly forward to-'ward a distant goal or ideal is a priceless attribute. So next time the going becomes difficult and the temp- tation to quit becomes great, heed the advice of the anonoymous author of the following poem, and resolve to try once more-this time harder. When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit- Rest if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a fellow turns about When he might have won had he stuck it out. Don't give up though the pace seems slow- You may succeed with another blow. Often the goal is nearer than It seems to a faint and faltering many Ofen the struggler has given up When he might have captured the victor's cupg And he learned too late when the night came down. How close he was to the golden crown. Success is failure turned inside out- The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems: afarg So stick to thef ight when you're hardest hit- It's when things seem worst that you mustrft quit. f f 1 f JUNE I JUNE ELIZABETH HEBERT Editor, Bee Hive '51 Student Council '48 '49 '50 '51 Student Council Treasurer '51 Pelican Girls' State '51 Band '48 '49 '50 Homecoming Court '50 They can conquer who think they can.

JUNE 1952 K. . , N 911519 -TH E BEE HIVE if Y f f 45520 ass is or By Jane Andry The Date: September, 1948. The Time: 8:30 in the morning. The Place: Behrman School Basement. And we, the 1952 graduating class of Behrman High School were the actors. We ntunbered one hundred and twenty-four green kids fresh out of grammar school, entering into a land of bewilderment-:1 land in which we knew no one except a few of our grammar school pals, who were just as amazed as we. How frightened lwemall were! We felt so straznge and new that if one had given us half the chance we would have run to our mothers. And how conspicuous we were! We felt as if we had ten arms and legs and two heads. And we might have had, the way the other students smiled pityingly at us and could tell at a minutefs notice that we were freshmen. How clumsy we were! How did we know we were going up the wrong steps? Oh, the arrows tell us so. Did someone say we'd serve detention for drinking at the fountains between classes? Are you serious? Say, what is detention anyway? Where's Room 216? Oops-wrong floor. Will we ever remember what period this is? Half hour for lunch? We'1l get indigestion! Oh gosh, we'll never get used to this routine. Oh, how we wish we were taking it easy in eighth grade right now. But we did get used to it. And we also got past Freshman Day with flying colors. What fun it was to wear pajamas to the football game! Seniors arenit so bad after all. But just wait 'til we're seniors, we thought. Our poor freshmen! V Our freshmen year wasn't all play however, there was work to be done, plenty of it. Oh that algebra! And would we ever pass Civics? But with a little effort we were again in the auditorium in September, '49, waiting for our schedule for the coming sophomore year. But as we looked around we didn see as many faces, some were missing. In our sophomore year we won the hon- ors on field day and felt very proud. On top of that, the same day, a sophomore was voted Miss "Queen Bee". Though the going was not as tough as in our freshman year, there were -still many pitfalls and some of us did not make the grade. But most of us did, and at the end of our second year w'e thought, "Gee, we're already half way." In our junior year we felt quite sure of ourselves. Things looked much brighter. We walked through the halls with assurance and smiled at the clumsy, frightened freshmen. We were in for good now, we thought. How could any- thing possibly happen to us now? But as we progressed further into the school year a lot of surprising things did happen, and many of us founnd our Junior year the hardest one of all. Our Class, you might say, made history this year, for it was we who in- augurated the first Junwior-Senior Prom. How proud we were when it proved successful! And again this year we ran off with the honors on field day. Oh, but we were happy. Truly, our c1ass,las every graduating class, deserves! ,a chap- ter in the history of Behrmafn High School! It seems Freshman Day was just yesterday and here already it is May. To think we were once freshmen who were actually scared of this immense building. Scared of it? Why welove it. In leaving Behrman, we think not only of the fun we've had and of those long hoLu's of studying, but we think of the many wonderful friends. We think of the problems we'Ve had and how we were taught to solve those problems ourselvesg and of the many, many difficul- ties we encounli'-ered and how we were guided to cope with those difficulties. We have been taught endurance, patience, and determination. We shall always look back on our days in Behrman High as the happiest of our lives-wonderful, happy days that we shall never forget.

However, Edith Rus- sell sighs AT LAST, while Ada 'Gros would like to come back ONCE IN AWHILE to visit. Arline Rustin, Dolores Trosclair, and Janet Van Hees will ALWAYS have a special place in their hearts for Behrman. During our senior year dancing and music have played an important part in our activities. Pat Lacombe rhumbas best to BEGIN THE BEGUINE, but Charlie Sutherland prefers that new catchy tune BLUE TANGO. Emma France still likes that ever-popular BOOGIE WOOGIE. Jo Ann Koch seems to fancy the modern trend of HARLEM' NOCTURN. Bertwell Andry favors HAM- BONE, a Novelty tune, just as Lowell Braem prefers PUT SOMETHING ON THE BAR BESIDES YOUR ELBOW. Jean West likes to dance to that swingy tune VAGABOND SHOES. While others are thinking of graduation, dancing, and music, there are a few like Gayle Sutton who whisper to their specials I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU. Linda Bragg and Gerald Camus are WONDERING what Janet Saleeby tells Bill FOR SENTIMENTAL REASONS. Louis Domino can be heard saying GIVE ME A KISS TO BUILD A DREAM ON. Lorraine Courtney and Ruth Massey are thinking about someone UNFORGETTABLE, and Annie Lou Ber- geron tells Bobby I'VE GOT YOU ON MY MIND. Jean Soudelier, Ronnie Sperier, and Marian Woolverton tell Squirel, it's BECAUSE OF YOU. that June Hebert is DANCING IN THE DARK. Jackie Sena". warns everyone to be care- ful because FOOLS RUSH IN, but Ann Emiliani answers that doesn't bother me because I'LL WALK ALONE. Bill Stagner asks, ,BE MY LIFES COMPANION and Lela Blanchard answers ANYTIME. It seems that Jane Andry tells Ken- neth I CAN'T GET STARTED. How about giving hey a push, Kenny? Eleanor Tregre Frickey, Nellie Turner Nielsen, and Helen McCloskey all say TELL ME WHY Joe Bodungen, Barbara Kirby, Frank Patai, Betty Russo, and Ronnie Windham have STARDUST in their eyes. It must be wonderful being married because Shirley Raggio Tingstrom is singing THE GLORY OF LOVE. While Virginia Chifici remarks I'VE GOT A RIGHT TO CRY to Lawrence, Elsie Waguespack is asking her mysterious fellow to FORGIVE ME. Virgie Adams tells J. C. to TRUST IN ME, while Buddy Coley .whispers YOU WONDERFUL YOU to Marilyn. Joycelyn McMahon says you made me love you because of ALL THE THINGS YOU ARE. V Merrill Treadway will be ALL ALONE until Buddy comes home, lucky Janis Newberry who has her ring, sighs I'M JUST WILD ABOUT HARRY. WHY DO I LOVE YOU is Marilyn Lasserre's favorite question to Eddie. Lucille Foucha is telling her one and only I'LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS and Joyclen Schaubhut adds I CAN DREAM, CAN'T I? Marcella Borcherding says THEY DIDN'T BELIEVE ME, but Milton Demandre and Jack Hall insist that they are UNDECIDED. Barbara Porter exclaims that BEYOND THE SUN- SET there will be a BLUE MOON for Clark Fox. Beverly Beninate, Julian Dumesnil, Martin Gould, Jane Nickoll. Lois Leftwich. Lloyd Lawrence, and Jack Stacy all ask to be treated TENDERLY -and Lloyd DiGiovanni tells them THAT'S MY DESIRE, too. Ray Strickland has GREEN EYES because of JALOUSIE says Betty Arnona and Merrill Molaison. While Jo Ann Bornf: moans that she is LONELY, Charmlaine Molaison tells us it's not MY FOOLISH HEART that makes me sad. Walter Biggs likes it DOWN YONDER and especi- ally during NIGHT AND DAY exclaim Billie Clasen, Kenneth Soulant, and Ray Sperier. Muriel Goodloe and Pat Wattigney tell us that SEPTEMBER SONG makes John Oser think of LITTLE WHITE CLOUDS. Janet Bond said I'LL REMEMBER APRIL because that was when Betty Hunn asked her one and only for JUST ONE MORE CHANCE. NEVERTHELESS, says Slyvia Campbell, the command was given to Mae Cunningham to be MY SILENT LOVE. If SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES, Joe Bergeron and Roy Hingle, THE BREEZE AND I will get it out remarks Sally Thomas. Eugene Brown has SYMPATHY for June Dunbar because she is saying FOR ALL WE KNOW we may never meet again. - 1 f -f 1 LJUNE I SENIORS PRES-ENT 'SHE FORGOT TO REMEMBER' By Joycelyn McMahon An enthusiastic audience howled at the antics of the . Senior Class in the presenta- 'Lon of "She Forgot to Re- member" in the school audi- torium on May 29. The play, under the direct- ion of Mr. O. Roberts, opened as Marvin Ellis and Taylor Snowden awaited the arrival of their fiancees, Gwen Archer and Elaine Woodbury, with whom they were eloping. The boys soon learn that the girls' train has been wrecked. Elaine appeared a little later thinking she was Gwen: Of course, she thought she was engaged to Marvin instead of Taylor. In the meantime Mar- vin's aunt, Miss Ellis, and Elaine's mother, Mrs. Wood- bury, came to the hotel to try to prevent the elopmentg they discovered that they are old school chums. Naturally they favored the mixed-up state of affairs in which Marvin and Elaine became greater friends. After many complications, Taylor and Gwen became disgusted with the whole situation and left. Obviously the two weddings were cancelled, since lone party of each disappeared. But the remaining half of each wedding party was none too sad, for they recognized the beginning of a "beautiful friendship? The cast included Jane Andry as Elaine Woodburyg Buddy Coley as Mar- vin Ellisg Kenny Soulant as Taylor Snowdeng Jo Ann Koch as Gwen Archerg Gayle Sutton as Mrs. Woodburyg ,Janet Saleeby as Miss Ellisg Bert Andry as Mr. Leland Kingg Charlie Sutherland as the detective-gEmma France as phyllisg Shir- ley Tingstrom as Camilla, Sally Thomas as Hesterg June Hebert as Dianeg Louis Domino as Buddyg and Lorraine Courtney as Mrs. Brewster.

TWO BEHRMAN TEACHERS ON SABBATICAL LEAVE By Arline Rustin Two of B6h1'1Tl31'l'S most staunch supporters, Miss Odette Saizan and Miss Alfreda Voegtlin, have been on Sabbatical leave during the past year. Both Miss Voegtlin and Miss Saizan are teachers in the high school divi- sion and have been at Behrman since it was opened. Miss Saizan, who teaches Spanish, has spent most of the year in Lima, Peru. Using itl as a focal point, she has traveled to other parts of South America. Miss Voegit1in,- who is a meni- ber of the English department and who served as last year's ranking teacher. at Behrman, is enjoying her first "free" year away from Behrman at her home in Algiers. For many years, both pupils and teachers of Behrman have looked to Miss Voegtlin and Miss Saizan for guidance and assistance, and it is with eager anticipation that they await their return in September. 952 44525 TH IVE 1 f 1 f E BESQE H WHO'S WHO AMONG THE SE'NiIORS ANNOUNCED , - By Ann Emiliaxii At last the big day had arrived! There we were, excited Seniors, eagerly waiting backstage to be called! It was April 16, the day the student body cast their votes to determine which Sen- iors would be winners in the annual "Who's Who" contest. While many Seniors suspected the categories in which they had been placed by the Junior Class, others were completely surprised. Each walked to the center of the stage to the applause of the student body. After the last Senior was presented, everyone re- iturned to class to vote for these who he thought best fitted the. titles. Ballots were collected and counted by the Juniors under fthe supervision of Mrs. Evelyn Cormier, Librarian. The voting was close because the Seniors had been so well chosen for the positions.

HISTORY STUDENTS HEAR ADDRESS OF YOUTHS FROM 'GERMANY By Janet Bond Four students, Janet Saleeby, Janet Bond, Eugene Brown, and Ronald Windham attended an assembly at Sophie Wright High School on Monday, May 5th, to hear two German youths who are touring the country under the auspices of Freedoms Foundation. The-se boys, Wolfgang Bernhardt, of Berlin, and Wolff gang von Kaltenborn of Kassel, spoke to the students of various high schools of New Orleans, "to impress upon them the importance of the free way of life which Americans enjoy, by telling of personal experiences under the shadow of Totalitarianism, where personal freedom does not exist." Each high school in New Orleans was invited to send four students to the conference. The students from Behrman were seniors selected by the teachers of the United State-s History classes The program at Wright began in the High School auditorium where the students were addressed by several dignitaries, among whom were Mr. William Fitzpatrick, editor of the New Orleans States, and Pulitzer Prize winnerg and the Reverend James Greeley, S. J. Both of these men are Freedoms Foundation award winners. The German boys then spoke to the audience, telling something about themselves and stressing the threat to feedom found in Communist Rus- sia todayg they emphasized the vigilance which American people must employ to guard against this threat. After -the auditorium program, students met with the boys in the library to discuss conditions in Germany today. ' The Freedoms Fotmdation sponsored a contest throughout Germany in which students were to write a one-page essay on' the meaning of the word "freedom" Fifty 'winners were selected and sent to tour the United States. Bernhardt and von Kaltenbofrn fwere two of the winners and came to America to tell us what freedom mean's to them. ll il nn -1 I ull 31 - si?

Such athletic equipment as parallel bars, vaulting horses, climbing ropes, chest weights, tiimbling rings, and wrestl- ing mats are included in the Field House for the use of the students. 333 TH Fey y BEE QHIVE 1 1 fi f ' A 'C STUDENTS OF SOLID GEOMETRY CLASS DECORATE 'CHRISTMAS Tries' IN APRIL A By Arline Rusiin .Anyone who entered room 203 during the early part of April was immedi- ately convinced that the members of this yearfs. solid geometry class were more than a little eccentric. There on a desk in front of the room for everyone to see was a decorated Christmas tree! Those who did not quickly retreat learned that this tree was not adorned with the usual' Christmas ornaments, but with odd-shaped objects, which, they were informed, were tetrahedrons, oetahedrons, dodecahedrons, and other geometric patterns- with polysyllabic names that the pupils of the solid geometry class had fashioned. The Very bravest visitors ventured to voice the question that bothered everyone-"But why in April?" The prompt' reply was that this imaginative class of eight girls and one boy had not taken solid geometry during December. "Besides, shouldn't we always have the Christmas spirit?" someone added. It was revealed that these inspired students had labored ambitiously on their "masterpieces" for three weeks. Consequently, it was no surprise that the figures were so colorful. The various polyhedroiis were painted, varnished, nail-- polished, papered, 'and glitter-dusted unfcil finally the finished products were ready for display. Strange as it may seem this year's solid geometry class taught by Mrs. Angeline 'Werner is composed of eight girls and one lone boy. They are Jane Andry, Ada Gros, June Hebert, Joycelyn McMahon, Barbara 'Porter, Arline Rustin, Janet Saleey, Jean Soudelier, and Lloyd Lawrence. 1 1 Al l I S 95534 1 f fp f fJUNEl 952 FIVE BEHRMAN STUDENTS IOIN FUTURE TEACHERS OF AMERICA By Ada Gros In March of this year, the Future Teachers of America Club was organized in New Orleans. It is composed of Junior and Senior students from Behrman, Country Day, Fortier, McDonogh, McMain, Nicholls, and 'Wright who intend to make teaching their vocation. The projects that the club worked on this year were scrap-books for child- ren in Charity Hospital and the writing of letters to school studen' s in Germany. In the Campaign For Truth, members of the Future Teachers of America col- lected magazines which were sent to foreign countries so that the people could learn how Americans live, play, and workg it is hoped th-at pupils of other countries will better understand the habits, customs, and nature of the American people. To investigate the special type of educational facilities that are available to the men and 'Women in the leprosarium at Carville, the Future Teachers of America are planning a trip there. Behrman's representatives to the F. T. A. program are Jo Ann Borne, Marcella Borcherding, Joel Babylon, Ada Gros, and Carolyn Herndon. Jo Ann served as librarian of the club for the past year. All of the individual pictures appearing in this edition of the BEE HIVE were taken by Tipery Studio. With the exception of the football picture and the picture of the Behrman Field House by Art- hur Tong: the senior art and Homecoming Court, Panuski Sz Stempel: the Sugarettes by Leon Trice and pictures on the snapshot page by Behrman students: all group pictures were also furnished the BEE HIVE free of charge by Tipery Studio. 335 T'H E BEE HIVE 'f f' f 1 H236 STUDENTS PRESENT BOOK REVIEW ON TELEVISION By Lucille M. Foucha , "Cheaper By The Dozen" and Bells On Their Toes," both by Ernestine Gil- breth Carey, and Frank Gilbreth, Jr., were the two books reviewed by Junior and Senior students of the Martin Behrman Senior High School. The students, guests of the Teen Age Book Review, presented their interesting and thorough discussion over Station WDSU-TV on Thursday, February 14. . This year something new was added to the review. Since the action of the book took place during the time of the "flappers" and "shieks" in the l920's, Marcella Borcherding, Jackie Senat, Joycelyn McMahon, and Gayle Sutton strum- med their ukeleles while Jane Andry and Emma'France danced the Charleston. Jackie Senat and Lloyd Lawrence, dressed in costumes of the period, served to introduce the review. I The book, ."Cheaper by the Dozen," tells the' story of the Gilbreth family before the death of Mr. Gilbreth in 1924. It consists largely of the antics of the Gilbreth children and reveals father's ideas of efficiency. "Belles On Their Toes" is the story of the Gilbreth family after Mr. Gilbreth dies. It is the story or Mrs. Gilbreth, principally. In this book the girls find romance and the boys dis- cover that there is a war going on. It tells how- Mrs. Gilbreth takes over the business of motion study and becomes a leader in that field. This is the fifth consecutive year that Behrman students participated in the Teen Age Book Review. This is the second ,year that the students have appeared on television for their book review. Last year "Call It Treason" by George Howe was presented. Other books reviewed by Behrman students on previous Teen Age Review programs were "The Red Chair Waits" by Mary Margaret Huggins, "The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come" by John Fox., and "The Robe" by Lloyd C. Douglas. Continued on next page W- 1 1, 1 1- f J U NE 1 952 BEHRMAN PUPILS KNOW HOW TO HAVE FUN The Behrman Bees have been "buzzing" all year-working hard and having fun.

' MBHS' FACULTY NAMES ALL GIRL WINNERS IN SENIOR BABY CONTEST By Barbara Porter ' 1 ffGee whiz, I wish my folks had taken pic-tures of me when I was little." "Well, my mom says they took a. lot of pictures of me before I was four years old, but nobody can find them now. I'm sunk, too!" Say, that certainly seemed to be a dejected pair, but they had every reason to be, as did several other seniors during the week prior to April 8. After all, every senior wants his picture entered in the annual graduates' baby picture contest, and it's pretty discouraging to find that nobody thought enough of you as a littly tyke to take your picture or that 'somebody misplaced that darling shot of you at the charming age of two. It seems that lthings happen that way, but of the eighty-four seniors more that fifty did enter photos and snapshots that had been saved, maybe hidden, over the many years since the graduates' baby days. O ' The members of the faculty found judging no easy task, but the majority agreed that though time often changes things and people, it little changed Sally Ann Thomas who was chosen to be the BABY MOST RESEMBLING the PRESENT SENIOR. K Pert Lorraine ,Courtney was the CUTEST, and Arline Rustin, the little lady with the SWEETEST SMILE. While everyone agreed that Sylvia Campbell was the MOST SOLEMN, Anne Emiliani laughed herself into the roll of HAPPIEST BABY. Jane Nikoll sweetly took the honors for the MOST CONTENTED tot, while Billie Clasen captured attention of the judges to be named the MOST INTERESTED BABY. A . Maybe rnammas and daddies generally believe that boy babies are tops, but the faculty judges of Behrman High seemed to disagree. They picked an all female cast of winners in Behrmarfs Senior Baby Contest. SALLY THOMAS ARLINE RUSTIN iii N-E, 1952 JANE NIKOLL ANN EMILIANI BILLI E CLASEN LORRAI NE COURTNEY SYLVIA CAMPBELL -.

They are Joel Baby- lon, Marilyn Krider, and Merle Robichaux, and they seem quite pleased with the dresses they are modeling. are wearing smart They teen-age styles with the new '52 flair, which seems to have very popular with J become the school crowds. These dresses were made by the girls as part of their project for Advanced Clothing. On other pages of this is- sue of the Bee Hive can be seen members of the Junio: High Homemaking class and the projects they constructed as part of their program. These fashion wise girls have made the very popular flared -- skirts which can be worn quite well with their simple blouses made from cool -coittons. However, two of the girls seem to have their minds on cooking, and they are displaying the "easy to make" aprons, which often come in handy. Preparing a balanced meal plays an important in the Advanced Foods class, but even a well balanced meal always tastes better if it is served on an attractively arranged table. Muriel Chico, Marcella Borcherding, Marilyn Thomp- son, and Betty Lannes are pictured setting a 'table for a buffet luncheon. These girls participated in the table setting contest recently sponsored by Maison Blanche of New Orleans. ' The Senior High. Advanced Foods class is under the direction of Miss Ruth Thalheim. Mrs. Pat Lyons Harvey teaches Advanced Clothing to the Senior High students. The Junior High Homemaking class is taught by Miss Julia Dauenhauer. MBHS SENIORS ENTERTAINED AT IUNIOR-SENsIOR PROM - By Jo Ann Koch and Marilyn Ruiz Members of the 1952 Senior Class were guests of honor at a prom given by the Junior Class at the Behrman Memorial Gymnasium on Friday, May 9: 1952. The students danced the night away to the music of Sammy Coslta's band. The Juniors, under the leadership of Co-Chairmen, Jackie Brechtel and Herbert Ellenberg, provided, by their ingenuity and hard work, a most delight- ful prom. To keep as cherished mementos of this gala occasion, the seniors were given small diplomas tied with green and gold ribbon and small green graduation hats topped with a gold HB". A song was dedicated to the seniors. This was the second Junior-Senior Prom to be held by students of the Behrman High School, and 'the present seniors are grateful to those who as- sisted in making this a night long to be remembered and enjoyed. To the Juniors, and especially to Jackie and Herbie, the seniors say "thanks a million." 1 1 1 f 1 .ly-NE I 2-52 1952 MARKS GRADUATION OF SECONJD GENERATION PUPILS By Janet Saleeby Behrman Alumnae Cathe- A " ' rine North Patai, Class of February '32 and Ione Le Blanc Courtney, Class of Jan- uary '33, will find the gradua- tion exercises this June an ex- tremely happy occasion and one for reminiscence, They are to witness the graduations of their respective children, Frank Patai and Lorraine Courtney, in the very same auditorium in which they received their diplomas two decades ago. We at Behrman find this as proud an occasion as the Courtneys and Patais do, for Frank and Lorraine are the very first second-generation graduates of Behrman High! Mrs. Patai was a member of the first Behrman graduating cla-ss. She was one of a class of 9, only one of which was a boy. Behrman has really grown since then. Frank's Class numbers 84, 27 of which are boys. Y A When Mrs. Patai received herqdiploma, Behrman School was but a lyear- old infant and as yet had made no progress in the development of extra-curricular activities. The majority of Behrman's first graduates, including Mrs. Patai, re- ceived commercial diplomas. They had completed a regular business course in- cluding typing and shorthand. Frank, her son, is preparing for his future by doing part-time work with his father in the fields of radio and television. Mrs. Courtney also received a commercial diploma. Her treasured copy of the January '33 BEHRMAN BUZZ, the predecessor of our BEE HIVE, is proof of the fact that Behrmarr was in full swing at that time. Mrs. Courtney wasamember of the Loyalty Club, similar to our Boosters, the Glee Club and the "Buzz" staff. Lorraine, following in her mother's footsteps, has shown active school spirit, and has worked particularly hard with the Behrman Band. At present She is trying to choose between a career as an elementary teacher and one in the business world. ' Yes, the Patais and Courtneys have started something which will soon be commonplace at Behrman High. More and more Behrman students will receive diplomas from their parents, alma mater. They are laughing and talking and rushing through the very same halls that their parents trod a generation ago. Behrman is at the top of the list of New Orleans High schools, for she has kept in step with changing trends. Yet more and more mellow tradition is creeping with age into Behrman to make her more endearing to those of us who must leavc her. To both Catherine North Patai and lone Le Blanc Courtney we say "Con- gratulationsln Behrman ,is proud to number you and your children among its graduates. 34' IVE 1 f f 1 THE BEE H 4142 SENIOR HIGH ART STUDENTS DISPLAY TALENT IN MANY DIFFERENT FIELDS OF ENDEAVOR By Ada Gros During the past year, the art department of Behrrnan Senior High has been busy making many posters, puppets, floats, masks, and decorations for many occasions. The sltudents have regular class projects to complete, but in their spare time many busy themselves in making posters, painting landscapes, creating designs, and doodling. Oil paints, India ink, water colors, poster paints and pas- tels help to make their work appear professional. Each student attempts his best. Among the projects in art completed this year was the making of puppets by the more advanced students of art. The puppets were made in October by Bert Andry, Jane Andry, Jo Ann Borne, Muriel Chico, Freddie McDona1, Bar- bara Porter, Beverly Richards, and Janet Saleeby. These puppets were used at the Louisiana Teachers Convention held in Shreveport in November of last year. The six puppets, a narrator, an instructor, and four students of ar-t, we1'e made to illustrate art activities in the Louisiana rural areas. Bert Andry made their wooden bodies and the girls made their heads and sewed their clothes. The other props, desks and tools, needed for the presentation of the show were also made by Bert. There are drawings made for just about every holiday in the year.-,. Christmas, Valentine's Day, Halloween, Mardi Gras, and Easter. At Carnival time, the students made colorful miniature floats and masks. These projects' which were made by many students, helped to keep alive the Mardi Gras spirit. For the Lenten season students made proverb posters on the more serious side of life. Last year murals for our library were painted by the art students. The murals 'Were so well done that some of our advanced students have been asked to paint murals for the Algiers Public Library. These are presently being painted and will be ready for hanging in early stunmer. Continued on next page 1' 1 Y Y. Q 1 ' J-U N-E I 952 ART STUDENTS MAKE GREAT STRIDES in By Ada Gros The art students of the Behrman Junior High School have been very busy this year making posters with water colors, tempera and poster paints. Using India irik and chalk, the students drew cats, vases, and many different floral designs. Other projects completed by the students during the past year were St. Patrick's hats, Easter designs, landscape drawings, Christmas ,cards, posters lettering and figured drawings. Some students made three dimensional animals out of paper. The students used stylefoam plastic to make rabbits, baskets, eggs, and other designs representing the Easter season. Many students made papier-mache figures of negro mammies, rabbits, cats, little boys eating watermelons, and snowmen. The best ones were sent to Mc- Donogh High School to be put on exhibit. The art students of the Junior 'High School are taught by Miss Judith Snider. ' MBHS' During the month of April, the school, but especially the Art Department seemed to become "Latin American." The pupils made posters depicting Latin American scenes, people and places. Poster paints were not used for these posters except for the letteringg students made them on colored paper using colorful clipings from magazines. ' Behrman is proud of the work of its Art Department which always is ready to serve the school and to help beautify it. Under the guidance of Miss Estelle Barkemeyer, students work happy in the knowledge that theirs is an important and pleasurable task. - H143 LM DANCING, TUMBLING MADE INTEGRAL PART - OF GIRLS PHYSICAL EDUC.ATION PROGRAM By Emma France and Merrill Treadway Dancing, tumbling, learning 'the principles of safe driving, studying good health habits, and participating in sports were all part of the work carried on by the girls' physical education classes of the Behrman Senior High School dur- ing the past school year. The girls' physical education classes, under the direction of Miss Bernice Pailet, a graduate of Southeastern Louisiana College and past teacher of Arabi High School, were conducted this year with many variations. iThe girls in the gym classes this year learned to dance 'the fox trot, the Waltz, the tango, the rhumba, the samba, and the polkag they learned some square dances and folk dances. Practicing the many different dances was fun, though sometimes hard, and 'the girls soon learned that knowing their way around a dance floor paid dividends. Many of them helped teach some of the boys of the school the dances they had learned, and ,when Behrman presented its Spring Fiesta on April 26, several couples demonstrated how to rhumba, samba and tango. The senior high school girls learned that they could have as much fun dancing as they could hitting a home-run outdoors or by making two points on the basketball court. Another activity enjoyed by the girls was Stumbling. During regular gym classes many were surprised to see their classmates attempting, and sometimes accomplishing, forward rolls, backward rolls, flying angels, srroball-s, endless chains, three people forward roll-3, pyramids, and their favorite the squash pyra- mid. This phase of the program will long be remembered for backaches,- head- aches, assorted pains, and hours of enjoyment. Much of the time of the Freshmen was spent in learning every day health habits which help them keep healthy and look well-groomed a't all times. Some good daily health habits which are stressed are the daily bath, brushing of the teeth regularly, Wearing of clean clothes, and getting proper rest. Members of the sophomore classes are taught the fundamentals of safe driving. They are noit only taught the rules of safe driving but also the rules that all pedestrians should follow. , The junior classes learn how to apply First Aid whenever it is needed. They learn ho'W to handle and care for a person who is seriously injured before a doctor can be reached and also how to treat persons suffering from minor injuries. ' ' 1- ' ' JUNE 1952 NINE BEHRMAN GIRLS NUMBERED AMONG SUGARETTES ' By Ann Emiliani For the benefit of anyone who does not ye-t know them, let me introduce The Sugar- ettes, a precision drill team of 700 high school girls, parti- cipated in the half time ac"ivitie-3 of the 1951-52 Sugar Bowl Football Game, Of those who volunteered from Behr- man, only nine remained to participate on New Year's Day. The girls were chosen particularly for their height, Weight, and ability to follow instructions. Practices were held from Sep"ember through the Christ- mas holidays at Behrman, Peters and McDonogh, while the Sugarette Band held practice elsewhere. After prac- tice. or during intermission, refreshments were served. On the morning of January 1, the Sugarettes and Band nervously waited to be given the final instructions. They then marched across the field to their seats where they remained until the hali time. At the half time, before the Maryland Band had completed its routine, the band and Sugarettes took their places behind the goalpost, ready to march onto the field. The Sugarette Band marched ahead playing, paused, then started the KING COTTON MARCH, which most of the girls and boys will never forget. The mimetic routine included such sports as the Javelin, the Discus, the Sprint, the Broad Jump and the Hammer. The rou-tine ended as they left the field doing a rhythmic kick-step to the tune of WHEN MY SUGAR WALKS DOWN the STREET. The first performance of the Sugarettes was met with many Well de- servedpraises from the public. ' T In appreciation for their hard work and wonderful performances, ,the Sugarettes and Band were honored with a party and dance by the Mid-Winter Sports Association. At this time the Sugarettes were presented silver, miniature. Sugar Bowl pinsg the Band members were given pen-knives. . . . The Sugarettes from Behrman were June Dunbar, Ann' Emiliani, .Emma France, Iris Gordy, Janice Lauman, Merle Robichaux, Rita Joyce Romero, Jackie Senat, and Betty Sue Tyler. The Sugarettes will perform again next year. MBHS' . The senior classes are taught not only to recognize the symptoms of com- municable diseases but also how to treat them. They have learned aboutithe causes and cures of rare diseases as well as the mdre common ones. Each student did research work on a different disease and presented a report to the 'clas-sg this helped greatly in learing the truth about many disease and in dis- pelling "old wives' tales" that have attached themselves 'to the cause, treat- ment, and cure of some diseases. V Because of the limited playing space the classes were hampered a bit in their usual well-rounded intramural program, but the girls were taught- the fundamentals of volleyball, giant volleyball, basketball and indoor ball. Outside classes are enjoyed by everyone because of the difference from the usual :routine classes and the chance they afford the' individual to get a wonderful ready-made sun tan.

AELLENBERG HEADS STUDENT COUNCIL By Jane Andry The student body held its annual election for student body president on Tuesday October 30, 1951. After a strenuous campaign against five candidates and a runoff against Louis Domino, Herbert Ellenberg emerged victorious, A few days later the student council chose Louis Domino as vice-president and Jane Andry and June Hebert as secretary and treasurer, respectively. The officers, along wi'h the homeroom presidents, were inauguratedafew weeks later on November 13, 1951, by the Honorable L.. F. Wingerter, who ad- ministered the oath of office. Judge Wingeritiei' congratulated the new student body officers and impressed them with the importance of representative govern- ment in our school as well as in our country. Herbert pledged his loyalty to the student body and promised to do his utmost to make the school year successful. The student council ,participated in the Homecoming Ceremonies on Sun- day, November the 18th. On Homecoming Day Mrs. Robert Cruice presented the flag that draped her husband's casket to our school. June Herbert, the trea- surer of the student council, accepted the flag .and thanked Mrs. Cruice on be- half of the faculty and the students of Behrmari. The flag was raised during the pre-game ceremonies of the homecoming game. The student ,council again this year sponsored a thanksgiving -program and the distribution of baskets to the needy of Algiers. Baskets prepared by each homeroom were judged by Mrs. Lillian O'Brien of the lunch department and Misses Pat Dunn and Joan Blanchard, Home Economists for the Louisiana Power and Light company. In judginglthe baskets attention was given not only to the decoration of the basket but also the food included in them. First prize was awarded to homeroom 205, second to homeroom 304, and third to homeroom 316. q The work of the student council is under the supervision of Miss Katherine Kenny, counselor. ia'-546 ' 'f A f " ' f' JUNE' 1952 GLEE CLUB ADDS NOTES OF IOY TO OUTSTANDING PRESENTATIONS By Lela Blanchard Ive often heard 1 Sald that good thmgs usually come 1n small packages and I suppose that m compauson Wlth others ln the c1ty the Behnnan Glee Club may be telmed small Although xt numbers less than seventy the e are hard workmg enthus1ast1c pup1ls who seem always w1ll1ng to do then? best ln the many programs ID wh1ch they part1c1pate Durmg the plast yea1 the Glee Club unde1 the d1rect1on of M185 Maly AIICG Ba S1Cl'1 cho1al d1recto1 entertamed at several outstandlrg pexformances In Decembel at the annual Band and Glee Club concert they sang many cllf fe1ent types of SGIQCIIODS Among the cho1ces we1e sprrltuals cmols and numbers Chnstmas Tree P1og1am held m Jackson Square The numbers wele done- a capella In the New O1leans Spung F1esta the guls of the Glee Club wele d1es ed as casket guls 1n gay cololful costumes They v1s1ted many of the patlos where they entertamed by smgmg Creole Songs At the Sprmg Flesta 1n chool the Glee Club sang the populal I'1'1610d1Cb of IN THE STILL OF THB.

Shortly after this performance they appeared in' the annual BEl-IRMAN BAND ALWAYS BUSY 'PLAYING' By Lloyd Lawrence Under the leadership of Mr. Milton Bush, Behrman High Bandsmen have enjoyed a very successful season. Activities began in the early part of the year with the beginning of the football season. The Band presented a variety of pageants with interesting themes, both serious and humorous. One of the most interesting themes, of all was a marching drill in which the band neglected the commands of the drum major and proceeded in their own. This, as you can imagine, proved to be very interesting and amusing. It also added greatly to the Homecoming half-time activities. Bandsmen helped the happy yule-tide spirit along by participating in two Christmas parades, one in New Orleans and one in Algiers. The Band also played for the annual Corinthians Christmas Party given on December 23. Pre- vious to this engagement the Band presented their annual Christmas Concert. The Band presented several selections by themselvesg for others, the Band and Glee Club united their efforts. There were soloists presented by each group. When the Carnival season rolled around the Behrman High Band and the Band composed of students from the Elementary schools of Algiers were on hand for the parades of Alla and Choctaw in Algieis. They also marched in the Midas parade of Gretna. The rating of superior was awarded to the Behrman High Band, the Com bined Algiers Elementary Band and the All City Elementary Band in the annual Louisiana Mucic Educators Association contest held at Peters High School last March. Superior ratings were also received by three soloists, three quartets and one sextet from the Behrman High Department. With the opening of the world premier of the motion picture "Flesh and Fury" held in New Orleans, the Behrman Band, the only band invited to take part in this activity, marched in a parade with the leadig members of the cast, Tony Curtis and Jan Sterling. The actors took pictures with the band and members had their music -autographed by the actors. The band contributeclmuch to the success of the Spring Fiesta presented by the school on April 26. In this show the band presented a variety of South American music. Because of the complex rhythm employed in South American music, it was necessary that the percussion section work harder than usual. On May 2, the Band joined other public school students in celebrating McDonogh Day. On this occasion student of the New Orleans public school placed flowers on the McDonogh monument. John McDonogh is remembered each year by public school students for the assistance he gave in the advance- ment of public schools in New Orleans. f if 3-lf1uNEf 1 952 Soloists, quartets, and the sextet who received ratings ot Superiod in the recent Louisiana Music Educators Association contest pose for their picture at the entrance of the school. BAND PRESENTS ANNUAL SPRING CONCERT The spring concert presented by the Behrman Band in the school audi- torium on Tuesday, May 20, 1952, featured William Wagner in a clarinet solo, Capricious Aloysius, and Lloyd Lawrence in a trombone solo, Adazio. Some of the selections that seemed especially well received by the audi- encebwere The Blue Tango, Night and Day, and The Poet and Peasant Overture. The Poet and Peasant Overture was conducted by guest conductor Lloyd Lawrence.

MBH5 WEEKLY LETTERS FROM MISS HYMEL PUBLISHED BY LOCAL NEWSPAP-ER INFORM FRIENDS OF DELIGJHTFUL YEAR SPENT TEACHING AND TRAVELING By Janet Bond . Miss Margaret Hymel, eighth grade teacher of Behrman, who went to England under the exchange system, hais found an unnsual lway of keeping her friends and the people of Algiers informed of her experiences and travels. The interesting and informartive letters which she Writes home are published Wholly or in part "The Algiers Herald," our local newspaper. These articles have been read with interest and enjoyment by the subscribers of The Herald, and have kept Miss Hymel in touch with her community in which she has played an im- portant part for many years. Miss Hymel, while at Behrman, taught eighth grade English and music. She was quite active in school programsg last year Miss Hymel very capably directed the senior class play. In theatrical work outside of Behrman, she was president of the Algiers Little Theater last year. In England Miss Hymel has taken the place of the English exchange teach- er here at Behrman, Mrs. Jessie bllis, at the Pirincess Royal School, in Batley, England. Like Mrs. Ellis, Miss Hymel has done as much sight-seeing in her spare time as possible. She arrived in England in the latter part of July and traveled about on the Continent, visiting France and Italy. She spent Christmas in Switzer-- land, and recenftly journeyed to Scotland and Ireland. Miss Hymel will return to the United States in July of this summer, and resume teaching at Behrman in September. ' ' f if 1 JUNE 1952 YEAR SPENT AT BEHRMAN IS HAPPY ONE FOR EXCHANGE TEACHER FROM ENGLAND By Janet Bond Although she has spent only a few months in Behrrnan as one of the' teachers brought to America under the exchange program jointly sponsored by America and England. Mns. Jesse Ellis has endeared her- self to everyone she has met. The students love her and teachers, principal, and the many friends she has made in and around New Orleans will say good-bye reluctantly when Mrs. Ellis sails in Aug- ust for her home in Batley, Yorkshire, England. "America is so different," Mrs. Ellis exclaimed, her blue eyes twinkling. "But I love all of it? And indeed, by the time she returns to England she will have seen more of America than most of us who are its natives. A young lady of wide interests, Mrs. Ellis has always en- joyed traveling, and has made the most of ner opportunues here in me U1l.ll,CL,l States to do some sightseeing. She has been to Texas and Florida and plans to drive to California in June. Before coming to America and Algiers, she had been to Egypt and India, and had traveled through most of her native England. ' At home in Batley, a small industrial town set in the English rnoors, Mrs. Ellis teaches Social Studies at the Princess Royal School. When asked how American children compare with English -students, she replied, "To me, children are the same everywhere, but I do think that Behrman students are more lively and energetic than the boys and girls in England." Though Mrs. Ellis has only 'been here a short time, it seems that we have known her for years. Her broad, lilting English accent makes her a true "Britisher," but her enthusiam for America makes us feel that her year here has already made her one of us. In February Commissioner Glenn Clasen presented Mrs. Ellis, during an assembly in the Behrman auditorium, with a key to the city. She was :made an honorary citizen of New Orleans. Behrman has been very happy to have you with us, Mrs. Ellis! We hope that when you return to your home in Batley, you will often think of us and remember with pleasure your year at Behrman.

The party 'Was held in the school basement. Everyone came dressed as Circus perform-ersg there were clowns, a circus band, chorus girls, and even a trained seal. Of course there was entertainment. Each senior had to perform before he received his ring. A famous lion trainer appeared, thrilling the audience as the lion became a lamb. Genuine Hawaiian hula dancers were a treat. Squeals of delight were heard as the snakes danced 'to the charmer's tunes. The Ring Master called out the trainer with his hoops and dogs.' A. human pyramid folloiwedg trained horses went through their paces. Singers and dancers enticed many to try their chance at the "wheel of fortune" When all had received their rings, delicious refreshments were served. Unfortunately most good things come to an end, eve-n RING PARTIES. The party ended and mingled with the usual "good night" were the excited voices of eighty-four happy seniors chorusing "Have you seen my RING?" 452 f f 1 f f JUNE I 2 Completing the table setting which was entered in the Maison Blanche table setting contest are Muriel Chico, Marcella Borcherding.

Fouclsa It may be rihat the goals toward which they are striving are worthwhileg perhaps it is that they all realize the importance of their concerted efforts: maybe they just like helping others-but whatever fthe reason is, the Junior Red Cross members of Behrman are busy the year round. One of the activities sponsored by the Junior Red Cross during the past year was the making of Christmas stockings for service men who were in hospitals. The stockings contained comic books, hard candy, tooth paste, tooth brushes, soap, and stationery. . . Girls in the home economics classes made chambray dresses for little school children who were in need of the help the Red Cross could give them. Then, too there were the Junior Red Cross drives to collect money which the Red Cross needed to aid people. Money was collected in every home room by the representatives. Two members of the Junior Red Cross from Behrman were selected to go to a camp last summer. At camp these members participated in many ac- tivities which helped train them to explain the program to the other members when they returned in the fall. Last year the representatives who attended the Red Cross camp were Karen Nielsen and Lorraine Courtney. Two representatives from each home room of the school meet every third Thursday of the month in Room 102. Under the capable guidance of Miss Ruth Thalheim, home economics teacher, these pupils conduct their meetings and do the work of the Junior Red Cross. TH 1 1 1 1 E- gsg H JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS UNTIE EFFORTS TO PRESENT BEHRMAN'S 'A CRUISE TO LATIN AMERICA' By Jo Ann Borne Glorious land of the rhumba, samba, conga-South America, here we come! A cruise to that Latin American Vacation spot-Brazil! This is the theme on which Behrman School enthusiastically decided to base this year's Spring Festival. On May 26, 1952 Behrman presented "A Cruise to Latin America." As in last year's Gypsy Carnival, there were, before the main show, stunt shows, grab bags, vending counters, and gobs of good things to eat. A major produc- tion in itself was the Style Show, planned by Miss Mary Alice Bassich and presented in the school basement by girls from the Junior and Senior High Schoolsg they were escorted by some of Behrman's star athletes. The main attraction, of course, was held in the auditorium, which was packed to capacity. The curtains opened, showing a perfect view of our "Vallette Street wharf" crowded with voyagers, and their friends who had come down to wish them "Bon Voyagel' Just before the opening of the curtains the band entertained the audience with their overture-an arrangement of South American songs. The Band. and Glee Club serenaded our friends before they boarded the the ship to leave. Our Style Show commentator was on hand, too, to describe the latest in traveling outfits modeled by our travelers. To put everyone in a joyous mood before saying goodbye, the Behrman Jazz band played "Way Down Yonder and "When the Saints Come 'Marching In." The last half of the show was climaxed by the presentation of the queens and courts of the Azalea and Camellia festivals. They were presented at a party given in their honor in South America. lncidently, our voyagers were on hand to see this colorful spectacle. Everyone present was entertained by a group of dancers, who did the samba and the tango. There were Mexican dancers, two soloists, and a trio-All gave delightful performances to add to the entertainment. As the show ended, all of the performers formed a Conga line and proceeded tc "snake" across the stage-a perfect close for a marvelous performance. The students, as well as the teachers, enjoyed presenting "A Cruise to Latin Amercia" amd they all worked hard to make it a success. They had their play, too, of course, for the Thursday and Friday before the show were set aside to get everyone in that South American mood. Students and teachers came to school dressed in colorful skirts and blouses and shirts, and those who really had the spirit wore Carmen Miranda head pieces. Students having the most colorful costumes and the cleverest head pieces were judged by the teachers during the lunch period. Members of the Azalea Court were Jacqueline Baker, queeng Shirley Anderson, first maidg Geraldine Brupbacherg Betty Gondrellag Grace Hilde- brandg Virginia Lawrenceg Pauline Caslerg Sybil Bergesg Amarylis Cunningham, Bonnie Sutherland, Jane Rae Bourgg Pearl Gondrellag Ruby Lucasg Shirley LeBlancg Joanna Schmidt, Irma Lee Spenceg Mary Ann Tullierg Peggy Kirkmanj Margie Ancling Joy Boyerg Gail Falcong Ronda Beninatig Jane Boyerg Christine Brown, and Barbara Creduer.

H154 1 f 1 1 1 ANTICS OF FRESHMAN-SENIOR DAY DELIGHT STUDENTS AND FACULTY By Edith Russell Ah, Senior-Freshman Day, a day of fun and frolic for all! On this day the seniors and freshmen Hrulei' the school. This is the day of all the school year that belongs exclusively to them. Everywlfere about the -school are the freshmen dressed in their funny clothes and the seniors dressed in their best! A close look at the freshmen re- veals that the boys are dressed in short pants, different shoes and socks, ties, ladies' hats, their hair is parted in the middle, and their shirts are on backwards. The girls are decked out in rough-dried dresses turned inside out,. and are wear- ing different shoes and socks, their hair is plaited in five pigtails and tied with colored hair ribbons, they 'wear no make-up, jewelry, or fingernail polish, and everyone carries dolls. To start this memorable day everyone gathers in the auditorium where the seniors and freshmen are introduced. Two of the freshmen present each sen- ior with a cap and each freshmen with a "freshie" bow. The freshmen in turn present their senior with an apple. At the conclusion of the program classes begin. Woe be unto any stray freshman caught wandering in the halls! At lunch time the freshmen are ordered to "wait on" their seniors. The freshmen are forced to sit on the floor to eat their own meals. The lunch period is lengthened so that the seniors may have more time to put freshmen through their paces. ' As soon as the bell announcing the end of the lunch period rings, seniors. freshmen, and some of the teachers congregate in the auditorium for a Kangaroo Court. At this a few of the freshmen are accused of "crimes, and must be de- fended by their seniors. One "serious" crime of which they are accused is drink- ing out of the water fountain.. Punishment for some of them is singing, pretend- ing to be a band, and group singing. At this conclusion of the program classes are resumed. During 'the day the seniors seem to do nothing but sign caps or have some- one else sign theirs. It is not uncommon to be calmly walking down the hall and have a senior stick his head at you and say, "Sign" With so much pleasantness the day seems to speed by, and school is soon out. The freshmen breathe a sigh of relief. They made it through the day! Now, they must endure the night at the football game. Many freshmen attend to enjoy the fun that they know is in store for them. Here, at the half-time the king and queen of the Freshmen class are crowned. After !the game is over, freshmen and seniors trudge home, tired but extremely well pleased. The seniors smile because they have been so happy and proud, and the freshmen drift into dreams of the not-too-distant future when they will be seniors and have the privilege of "commanding" a freshman. GRADUATES PRESENT NEW FLAG T0 SCHOOL As a token of their love for Behrman, the graduates of the 1952 class presented to the school a flag to be used in parades. Gayle Sutton, president of the Senior Class, presented the flag to Mr. Charles E. Steidtmann, principal, who accepted the flag in the name of the school. This flag carries the colors of the school, it is green trimmed in gold. On an oval background of green rests a large gold "B" encircled by the name of the school. The lettering on the flag is gold. - When it is not being used in parades, the flag will be kept on the stage of the school auditorium. i I -I - 4355 IH E BEE HIVE p - BDOSTERS PRESENT PRECISION DRILLS DURING HALF-TIME PERIODS By Jackie Sena! More than 150 Boosters from the Junior and Senior High Schools helped spark Behrman's teams throughout the past year. The Boosters, always on hand and full of pep, presented unusual exhibitions of skill in their drills. Perhaps the mo'st novel of all the drills executed by the Boosters this year was that which they presented during half time of the Behrman-Holy Name Game. Together with the Band, the Senior High Boosters perfected a dancing program which they called the " Hat Show." In fine coordination the Boosters began the half by doing a kick dance to "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow." A waltz-tap to the "Bowery" followed next. The most spectacular and colorful was the lariat tcssing to "Red River Valley? Here the girls twirled crepe paper lariats of all colors in cow-boy fashion, as if they were performing at a rodeo with ropes. The last routine was a military step to"Americarr Patrol." Each year the Boosters perform in recognition of Seniors and Ninth-grades. This year during the Behrman-Destrehan Game they presented such a show. It began with the Band and Boosters forming a bow and waltzing around to "School Days." Going right into the next routine, the Band became a heart and the Boosters, an arrow splitting the heart, At 'the end of the half the band was seen as a graduation cap and the Boo-sters, as the tassel. This was executed while the "Coronation Marchv was in full progress. Although both these shows were finely executed, none was more unique than -that of the Home-Corning Game. For the first time the Boosters presented pre-game entertainment. The Junior High Boosters, carried red and white stripes and white stars against a blue background on the field to form the symbol of our country, the American flag. They remained in their positions and the band played the National Anthem while the flag was raised. I During the half the Senior Boosters and the Band executed with skill and precision several drills honoring service branches of our country. In honor of the Air Corps, the outline of an airplane was formed by the girls. Then they formed an anchor for the Navy, a' cannon for the Army, and a hill with a cross in honor of the Marines. The show 'was climaxed by the Boosters securely locked as a chain representing the strength of America. The Booster Club, consisting of all girls, was formed five years ago by Miss Mary Alice Bassich to help cheer the teams on to victory and to make the half time more entertaining for the spectators. Since that time Mi-ss Bassich has tirelessly worked and given up her time to make the shows a success. Among the graduates of our 1952 class are Jo Ann Borne, Joycelyn Mc- Mahon, Jackie Senat and Gayle Sutton who have worked as Booster Captains under Miss Bassich for the past two years. A MBHS' ' SQUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA COLLEGE ENTERTAINS BEHRMAN BAND By Lloyd Lawrence The Behrman Band, Mr. Milton Bush, the director, and four chosen mem- bers of the Band Parents, Club, enjoyed a one-day trip to Southeastern Louisi- ana College in Hammond on Wednesday April 9, 1952. The Band had scheduled two concerts, one at the Hammond High School and one at the college but be- cause of difficulty which arose in making arrangements the Band was noe able to play for the high school audience. However, some of the high school musi- cians did get to hear the concert held at the college. Early in the day the Band attended a rehearsal of the college glee club and later they were present at a rehearsal of the Southeastern Symphony. The Behrman Band played their scheduled concert at 3:00 in the afternoon. In addition to a delicious lunch, which was served in the college cafe- teria, those who made the trip to Hammond enjoyed fresh strawberries and cream as a fitting dessert. , H156 1 f 1 1 Y f 1 1 l.",JUNE 7,1952 Cheerleaders who sparked our teams during the 1951-52 sessions are from left to right, Jean Soudelier, Barbara Hunt, Jimmy Dunn.

CHEERLEADERS MERIT SCHOOL PRAISE ,By Jackie Senat I Y "Hats off" to our cheerleaders who did a splendid .job 'this season in cheering our teams to victory. ' -. ' Each Friday before the games, pep meetings were conducted in the school auditorium by Behrman's competent cheerleaders. The whole school attended and worked up enthusiasm for the game which followed either that night or on the following Sunday. - P -1 The night before Behrmanys Homecoming game there was a "Pep Paraden which the cheerleaders led. It consisted of Boosters, Alumni, players, the'Band, and Behrman patrons. This year the cheerleaders went in a truck and led cheers. At the football banquet the deserving cheerleaders received their letters. Two cheerleaders, who have tirelessly worked this year and who will graduate in June, are Janet Saleeby and Jean Soudelier. Janet has been a cheerleader since 1948 and has been' head cheerleader for two yeras. Through her leadership and dependability she has merited for the cheerleaders a high rating at Behrman High School. Jean was elected cheerleader in 1949. Other cheerleaders for the past season were Gayle Abbott, Jimmy Dunn, Sammy Harding, Barbara Hunt and Karen Nielsen. 9 ' Gayle Abbott replaces Janet as head cheerleader next year. . Miss Mary Alice Bassich, adviser to the cheerleaders, has announced that there will be openings for four new cheerleaders next year.

In the picure above can be seen some of the students' class-room activities. The Distributive Education students in the foreground are recording a sales transaction. This is an i.mpor'ta.nt part of the course, because the recording is played back and each student is able to hear himself as others hear him. Con- structive criticism aids the pupils in their sales work. In the background is the display Behrrnan studenrt-s made and which won the city-wide display contest. This display was later sent to be entered in the National Distributive Education Convention in Wichita, Kansas. On the right is the moving-picture projector used so often by the Distri- butive Education classes. Selling techniques, advertising, display, textiles, and good-grooming are presented to the students through films. This year Behrman again won prizes at the state-wide convention which was held here in New Orleans ails the St. Charles Hotel. Shirley Harding won second prize for her merchandise manual on stockings. Iris Maxwell won third prize for her poster "The Link Between Your Present and your Future." This poster can be ,seen in the right hand corner of the above picture. Because enrollment in Behrman's Disstributive Education classes was so large, Behrman was able 'to send two voting delegates to the executive couincil of the New Orleans Distributive Education club. The delegates were Marilyn Lassere and Marian Donahue. The alternate delegate was Loretta Pitre. Other activities of the Distributive Education club included parties for the graduating members, and three city-wide dances. This year a casual dance, a semi-formal and a sock dance proved enjoyable to all who attended. Those members of the class who were not present when the picture was taken are Shirley'CamJnack and Marilyn Lassere. 1 1- 1 1 BEHRMAN D. E. PRESIDENT REPRESENTS LOUISIANA RETAILING STUDENTS AT NATIONAL DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION - CLUBS OF AMERICA CONVENTION? Mae Cunningham, Behrman distributive education student, was elected by the retailing students in Louisiana to represent them at the national Dis- tributive Education Clubs of America Convention held in Wichita, Kansas April 20-23. ' On Sunday delegaies from most of the states and one from Puerto Rico met at the Broadview Hotel in Wichita, Kansas, headquarters for the conven- tion. On Monday morning a public speaking contest was held. Those entered spoke on retailing. After this there was an inferesting talk on the theme of the convention, "Your Future Depends on Youll" Later in the day the representatives were taken on a tour through the city. Huge, modern schools, the coca-cola factory and the largest jet air force field in the U. SJ. were! among the interest- ing places they visited. Returning from the tour, the delegates witnessed dem- onstrations on selling and applying for jobs. Tuesday, after attending committee meetings, the delegates elected nat- ional. officers for 1952-53. Each candidate campaigned with much zest and or-- iginality. That night all attended a formal banquet and dance. Each girl dele- gate received a corsage to nihtch her dress. Awards for' the best manuals, dis- plays, essays, newspapers, scrapbooks and speeches were made Rt the banquet. Installation of the new officers at a candle lighh ceremony climaxed the convention. - - Last year Mae was elected treasurer of the citywide club and this year holds the office of Vice-president of the organiza"ion. She is the president of thc Behrman D. E. Club. MBHSH -' SENIOR ENGLISH AND BUOKKEEPING CLASSES ASSIST NEEDY FAMILIES By Jo Ann Borne "Where can we get a size 48 dress?" "We still need another gun and hols- ter set." "How about those shoes you promised?"-ZThese loud voicings emerged from Room 305 during the Senior English and Bookkeeping classes a few days before the Christmas holidays. Students could be seen popping in and out, carrying articles of clothing, toys, books, food, and just about everything imaginable. What could be going on? Christmas had a lot to do with it! Perhaps everyone was thinking about some poor or unfortunate family who would not spend a happy, or merry Christ- mas. At any rate, these particular classes decided to "adopt" families and ,help make their holidays happier ones. The Welfare Agency in New Orleans furnished them a list of families who were in need of help. The classes had asked for four families, but as things began to pour in, it was evident that many more families could be helped. They had a job ahead of them, and they set out to accomplish it. There were bicycles to be painted, skates to be oiled, dolls to be "restuffed'7 and given a "new" face, clothes to be sorted according to ages and sizes -1-- Oh, so much, to be doneg but what fun they had doing it! The boys made them- selves useful and, in their spare time, did all the painting and oiling and fixing that was necessary. Of course, the girls had their share of the work and did a wonderful job in restoring the dolls to their original glamour. A few of them even got some of the stores in Algiers to donate games and toys that the kids of the families had asked Santa to bring them. The last few days before the Christmas holidays started were 'spent in sorting and gift-wrapping the toys that were brought in and in collecting last- minute articles of food and clothing. When the last box was finally packed and off to the Welfare Agency to be delivered, everyone heaved a sigh of re- lief--glad to be rid of all the bustle and confusion, but, not one of them would have given up that task-+the pleasure of helping make another's Christmans happier and one to be long remembered. 359 STUDENT ASSISTANTS AID LIBRARIAN IN IMPORTANT WORK Linda Bragg and Barbara Porter Junior and Senior High School library assistants this year are helping with the re-organization of the Junior High School Library. The .above picture shows them at work processing the books. Roy Le- Blanc and Valence Hebert are checking' the. book order, Helen McCloskey is typing pockets and cards, and Carolyn Babin is cutting blurbs from booiksg Helen Coppola is pasting pockets and book plates in the books while Mary Lee Mann is stamping the books. Mary Wallace is entering accession numbers, Carol Lawrence is lettering call numbers on books, and Barbara Porter is shellacking them. These tasks are all necessary in getting books ready for circulation among the students of the schools and assist the librarian, Mrs. Evelyn Cormier, in her job of accessioning and cataloging the books. The room adjoing the Senior High School Library was formerly used as a work room and storage room, but recently it was converted into a smaller Work room with space for magazines and shelves to accommodate the Junior High School books. Students of both the Junior and Senior High School have the librarian's guidance in their research work and recreational reading. MBHS' I BEHRMAN COOPERATIVE CLUB WORKS TO AID SCHOOL By Ronald Windham The Cooperative Club, a club consisting of mothers of Behrman students, was founded in the year'1942. In the short time the Cooperative Club has been operating, it has accomplished much to make Behrman a better school. Never failing to live up to its name, the Cooperative Club is always will- ing to lend its support to other organizations formed Ito benefit the students and faculty. Both Junior and Senior High schools have benefited by the work of the Cooperative Club. Tacky parties and junior jumps were sponsored by the Coopera- tive Club for fthe Junior High students. Money to defray the expenses of the Senior Ring Party was raised by the Cooperative Club. In the past the Cooperative Club has accomplished many important things. Some of the tasks undertaken by the Club .were helping to raise funds to pur- chase the school bus, purchasing a tape recorder for the school and silverware for the home economics department. -if6O f 1 f , 1 ef JUNE..-1,9-gi BEHRMAN STUDEN'TS ATTEND PELICAN STATE Ph By Gayle Sutton and Ronald Windham - Learning to be a good citi- zen is an important part of everyone's education. Study- ing about the functions of vari- ous departments of our city, state and federal government is also important to each of us. But taking part in mak- ing the laws by which we are governed, planninng a city or conducting an election campaign can be fun as well as educational. At least that's what the delegates thought when they attended Pelican State conducted last summer on the Louisiana State Uni- versity Campus, Five students from Behrman joined many others from schools throughout the state to enjoy the nine frenzied, but happy days at Pelican State last summer. These students were edu- cated in the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of American Citizenship. Pelican State is divided into twelve cities, six parishes, and two main parties, each student becomes a citizen of one of the cities, and parishes and a supporter of one of the political parties. They have the opportunity of praciticing the governmental functions and duties, which are performed throughout the United States, such as nominating, campaigning, voting, and holding office. Each candidate for the Gubernatorial election, 1951, stated his qualifications to the Pelican Staters during their convoca- tions. In addition. to the political activity program the members participated in athletic events, stunt nights, and even a radio program. Delegates 'who were elected to attend Pelican State for the 1951 session were June Hebert, Jane Aundry, Gayle Sutton, Eugene Brown' and Lloyd Lawrence. The alternates were Jo Ann Borne, Jackie Senat, and Joycelyn Mc- Mahon, Ray Sperier, and Ronald Windham. As Lloyd Lawrence was unable to attend, Ronald Windham, his alternate, went in his place. Students chosen as delegates to represent Behrman this year at Pelican State are Barbara Hunt, Freddie McDonal, and Nick Christiana. Their alter- nates are Doris Bertoniere, Martha Jean Carroll, and Bernard Sanchez These students will learn that Pelican State is one of the best educational programs planned 'to increase their knowledge of citizenship. MBHS -- Contributions toward a high school scholarships fund are made by the Cooperative Club. Any student, needing the help offered by the scholarship fund is eligible to apply for such assistance.

Wheii all of these are combined with the added activities of Homecoming, it's enough to bring a lump in your 'throat and a mist to your eye. This seemed to be 'the feeling of hundreds of loyal Behrman supporters at Behrrnan's Homecominng game against Metairie during the past season. Everyone had worked hard to make this the biggest! Homecoming the Bees had ever fwitnessed, and even 'the defeat that the Bees suffered on the gridiron wasn't enough to daunt the spirit of the players or the enthusiasm of the crowd. The excitement began Friday with the Pep parade. Faculty members, students, and members of the Alumni met in front of school. From here a parade proceeded through Algiers. After the parade, the crowd gathered at the Foundry Field, where a Metairie "dummy" was burned. Around this bon- fire, Behrman followers cheered and sang. Before the game, fourteen of the football squad presented their sponsors 'with tiny footballs. During the half-time ceremonies, Carolyn Herndon, queen of the Homecoming, was crowned by Cornniissionerr Glenn Clasen, a former, athlete and graduate of Behrrman.

MBHS' - GENERAL HISTORY CLASSES VISIT MIDDLE AMERICAN RESEARCH INSTITUTE By Emma. France More than forty -students of the general history classes conducted by Miss Estelle Barkerneyer and Mr. Adrian' Martinez enjoyed their visit to thc Middle American Research Institute at the Tulane University Museum early this spring. Planning the trip, requesting permission from the principal and getting bus. transportation to and from Tulane, were all done by the students. With the hopes of learning more about the Mayan civilization, the classes went on a field trip to the exhibit. The pupils had studied about the' Mayansz, their customs, their type of art and sculpture, and their building methods- in class and wanted to know more about these people who lived on a peninsula of Cen- tral America kndwn as Yucatan, about one thousand years ago, Civil war broke out and wrecked the confederacy. Later the Spaniards invaded the city and crushed their rulers. The ci-ty was finally abandoned and within four centuries the jungle reconquered the land and buried the city that once had been occupied by the Mayans. 1 1 1 Y f .IUNEE -we 1 f- f 'Y' T :Jv- STUDENTS HAVE 'HOLIDAY' IN THE CLASSROOM -i Nl: By Janet Saleeby Students in Miss Mildred Steckman's seventh grade class are enjoying history and geography classes which have been given a new twist. Miss Steckl man has placed her collection of Holiday magazines, plus additional issues from the school library, at the students, disposal. The magazines contain up-toadate, attractively presented materials pertaining to the subjects which are. being studied. " Members of the class use the magazines for supplementary information for group reports and projects. When the students complete class room assignments, they enjoy perusing the colorful magazines. " H Picture wire has been strung along the blackboard. To this wire are clip- ped various maps and pictures from the magazines. These provide both interest- ing and colorful decorations for the room. The boys and girls are learning a little about filing through a collection of information from railroads, Steamship companies, airlines and chambers of com- merce, which advertise in Holiday. These pamphlets are kept in a file for the free use of the students. . ' I W The use of Holiday has greatly stimulated student interest in social studies and has proved a successful method of study.

When asked what his opinion of Behrman was, each new teacher replied favorablyg but each one seemed to have a particular reason for his approval. ' Mr. James Bonck thought, "Behrman is that heavenly, idyllic and estheti- cal oasis of the metropolis of New Orleans. I love itz" "Although I came to Behrman as a complete stranger to the students and faculty, everyone was sincerely friendly and cooperative," Miss Judith Snider said. She added with a smile. "You know whalt they say about us Northerners-that you have to show us. Here at Behrman I have been shown. It's a wonderful school and a fine place to be." Mrs. Jessie Ellis wanted everyone to know, "When I am home in England. I shall often think of Behrman School. May I thank both the faculty and sudents for helping to make this one of the happiest and most interesting years of my life." Mrs. Anna Unsworth said, "I like Behrman very much, and even though I'm up to my elbows in work, I have enjoyed this last year." "Because of my short stay at Behrmanf' Mr. Joseph Logreco explained, i'I'm not familiar enough with Behrman to say a great deal about it except that I llne "it" very much what I have seen." Mr. Logreco, who arrived in January replaced Mr. Clyde Griffith. Mr. Griffith was made an elementary itinerant teacher of Industrial Arts. Miss Bernice Pailet answered, "To me with a fine faculty, and a cooperative student the happy throng in September." Coach Joseph Salsiccia said, "There is anld student body. It's been a pleasure to be part of Behrman's activities." He summed up his thoughts by adding, "Behrman is A-l." "Now that I am a member of Behrman's faculty," Miss Gladys jones replied, "Behrman is nno longer just a public school across the river, but a combination of loyalty, cooperation, and good fellowship. The spirit of helpfulness among principal, faculty and student body is worthy of coirqmendation, and I am proud to be one of the happy family." M1'. Adrain Martinez reflected, "They say first impressions are las-ting. On my first visit here I found the students orderly, courteous, and considerate. With each new clay the impression deepens. I hope to carry this impression with me always." Behrman School means working body.

Although the band is losing about ten members, they will. be replaced by twenty-five more coming from the Junior High School and from the Elementary schools of Algiers. This will necessitate the purchase of approximately fifteen new uniforms. Purchasing of band awards is another expense that is assumed by 'the Club. A party givefn by the Band Parents' Club this year netted more than 3500. Much of this was used to purchase band instruments. - Parents of pupils of the Band are always welcome to attend the meetings and are urged to support the work carried on by the Behrman Band Parents' Club. The officers who presided over the Band Parents' Club for this year were Mrs. Leslie Johnson, President, Mrs. Charles Stacy, Vice-President, Mrs. Ann Calhoon, Secretary, Mrs. Curtis Hynes, Publicity Chairladyg and Mrs. Vincent Trauth, Registrar. f 1 1 f 1jU V u - NE 1 952 Wearing the blouses, skirts and aprons which they made in dhev Junior High home economics classes are. front row-Gail Wahl and Carolyn Wahl: back row-- Lincla Bu:-let, Joycelyn Hoffman.

Many of you will recall' that Behrman was the first co-educational public high school in New Orleans. This year it added another first to its list. lt was named the first white Junior High School in the Orleans Parish School sy-stem. One of the purposes of a Junior High is to help students gradually ac- custom. themselves to the once abrupt change from elementary to high school. It also groups children of about the same chronological age in 'thc same school. The Behrman junior high students at first had a little difficulty in adjusting themselves to a departmental work, a shorter lunch peroid, and no intermission, but they soon grew accustomed to these things and took them quite naturally in their stride. The Junior High is run on practically the same basis as the Senior High. Both have hour classes and elective subjects. The seventh grade students are required. to take English, social studies, mathematics, physical education, science, reading and spelling. The girls take home making and the boys, industrial arts. They may take either vocal music or instrumental music. Eighth graders must take English, social studies, mathematics, physical educationn, science, vocational guidanceg the girls enroll in home making, and the boys, in industrial arts. They must select three out of four electives, which may be reading and spelling, art, a foreign language, or instrumental or vocal music. The ninth grade is exactly like Senior High, which consists of tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades. Their required subjects are English, civic-s, algebra, and physical educat- ion. Their electives are similar to those of the Senior High School, 45265 TH 366 E BEE H ELAINE CAMPBELL AND .EOE NEWBY CHOS-EN FOX-TROT'WlNNERS By Marilyn Lassere Although they are not ready yet to become instructors for Arthur Murray, Elaine Camp- bell and Joe Newby seem, to be well on their way to suc- Gagzs as a ballroom team, Elaine and Joe were winners of a fox-trot contest spon- sored by the Behrman Coopera- tive Club at a tacky party held in the school basement on March 19.

Music for the happy occasion was furnishfld by the Algiers Teen-Age Band, under the leadership of drummer Kenneth Bourgeois. During the night, contests were held to determine the best dancing couple and the best group dancers.

' In this past year the Dads' Club has played an important roll in making the past season a successful one for the Bees. This year, as in Ethe past, some new football equipment, jerseys, pants and shoes, was purchased for the football team through the Dads' Club. This equip- ment has helped improve the appearance and has helped to insure the safety of the players. At the end of the season, jackets were presented by the Dads' Club to members of 'the team. In the past years the Dads" Club has always given picnics and awards to those boys who participated in athletics. The Dads never cease to cooperate with the various organizations formed to benefit Behrman. They are always ready to participate and help make a suc- cess of some extra-curricular event sponsored by the school. Presiding officers of the Dads' Club are Mr. Joseph Modenbach, Chairman: and- Mr. Felix Borne, Secretary and acting Treasurer. f f 1 1 1 1 f f 1 J U N E I HILITES PRoGRAM CONTINUED BY STUDENTS By June Hebert To develop lnterest in radlo pioduction and broadcastmg by part1c1pat1on in radio pro grams IS the purpose of the WNOE H1L1tes program Du1 mg the past year seven 1n terested students from Behi man accepted th1s opportunity Th1 year tudents repre sented the school 111 the 1deal g1rl and boy Conte t the annual ainouncer compet1t1on pro gram the straight news com mentaries held every week and the H1L1tes dance and style show Peihaps the most unportant of these program presented 1S the annual ideal glrl and idea' boy contest It is sponsored 1n an effo1t to encourage the rc cor gition of moral 1e11g1ous and c1v1c development among hlgh school students Out tandmg girl and boy can dldates from each of th :secondary schools compete against each other in the hope of being chosen the ideal gnl or ideal boy or the city Various p1 lZ9S including Spring outfits for formal sport and dayt1me wea1 are p1esentcd to the w1nne1s Behrmans candidates th1s year were June Hebeit and He1b1e Ellenberg Anothei unusual feature piesented by M1 Beverly Brown educat1onal di TECtO1 of WNOE 1 the announcer contest FOI the past two years Janet Saleeby has been Behrmans standard bearel She has competed 1n several categories in eou discus 1ons of d1ff1cult subjects Two othe1 features of H1L1tes which were gleatly engoyed by the stu dents were the annual HlL1tES dance held rn the Cla1borne Room of the St Charles Hotel on Friday April 18 and the style show at Colton High School on Saturday Ap11l 26 Jane And1y Jackie Biechtel Betty Gunnels and Patsy Hebert appeared on a number of p1Og1aITl as guest announcers and school news reporteis MBHS FOOTBALL TEAM HONORED AT BANQUET By Clark Fox At a iecent banquet given by the Dads and Mothers Club the football teams their dates and guest engoyed an expertly prepzned seafood d1nner M1 Pete1 Brechtel was the p11nc1pal speallei of the evening othe1 peakers included M1 Johnny Blechtel M1 Velnon Clasen and Comm1ss1one1 Glenn Clasen D1 Hemy La Rocca p1es1ded as Mastei of CGFGITIODIGS Coach Joseph S3lS1CC1a presented trophies to Captain Jack O er Most Valuable Player Tom Boyei Best Back A1thu1 Clarkson Best Blocker Paul VOIQIH Most IlT1plOV6Cl Playe1 Eugene Brown 'Most Spnited The managers and the va1s1ty players who letteled f01 the sea on 1ece1ved gleen and gold Jackets Other members of the team that did not lette1 1ece1vcd 1n1natu1e ffold footballs 952 4367 4 .

Truman, General "Ike" Eisenhower, Andrew Jackson, Woodrow Wilson, George Washington, General Douglas MacArthur are only cm few of the many Americans about whom Mr. Albert Jones' fifth period history class have been studying. Lively discussions about'Americans make them easily recognizable to the students of the class. These and many other names now slip familiarly from their tongues. Since the beginning of the year twensty-five boys and girls have been learning more about America from the time it was discovered by Columbus until the present day. A very decided help in these studies is the history work- book which contains questions on the different units. Between the students and the teacher there exists a spirit of cooperation and friendliness which has perhaps contributed much to make the study a more interesting and informative one. Lartely, it seems the class has been working extra hard. This is because term reports are due. The subject of these reports is chosen by the student from a variety of interesting personalities and phases of American life and customs. These reports range in variety from the colonists on down to President Truman and present day happenings and are six -to twelve pages long. To learn more about America and its people, there could not be a more informative source than American history. F L O W E R S The Bee Hive extends thanks to E. A. Farley, Florist, and Mrs. I Stenger.

BOYS LIKE ROUTINE OF GRAPHIC. ARTS DEPARTMENT By Jack Sta,cy I The small group of boys who are enrolled in Mr. Peter Quin's graphic arts class learn to "compose" and "run" various kinds of printing jobs. In a school where something is always going on, there is a demand for printed material. Some of the jobs which keep the boys busy are time printing of announcements, advertisements, program for football. games, shows and concerts, letterheads, schedule cards, schedules for track meets, and tickets for football, basketball, and baseball games. All this is done at a low cost. In addition to this, members of the graphic arts class print stationery, letterheads, and personal-cards: ' To many of the boys of the school, graphic arts is the most interesting of the industrial arts classes. MBHS' -' i BABY BEES WIN NORD TRACK MEET By Clark Fox The seventh and eighth grade Behrman Bees for the first time in the his- tory of Behrman, out-pointed other grammar schools to Win the Boyts Nord Track Meet at City Park Stadium on April 30.

ALUMNI PRESIDENT BILL DONNER., IR. SENIDS MESSAGE T0 1952 'GRADUATES Just ten years ago this June I was about to graduate, and I know from personal experience some of the thoughts that are running through your heads. You have reached' one of the most important crossroads in your life. Many of you will undoubtedly go into the business world to earn a lvingg others may enter into service to our country. Whatever you choose, your high school days are behind youg but they should not be forgotten. Remember the first day you entered Behrman as a high school student? Remember the new faces, the new teachers, the new subjects, the new sounds, and the new procedures? Yes, that was another milestone in vour life. Upon entering high school you emerged from child hood into a brand-new world. Remember the dances, parties, and football games? All these things were intergral parts of your school life: remember the spirit of our athlete-3 ca-rving the honor of Behrman into the fry? Remember your urging them on? Those memories linger in every student's mind, even after graduation. The Alumni Associationfs purpose is to keep those memories alive and fresh, and to preserve the friendships made while in school. A loyal and active alumnus never grows oldg he always has a deep feeling for his Alma Mater. The Behrman Alurnni Association is in need of active members, members who are not afraid to extend themselves for the betterment of their school. With active participation, particularly among the younger and new Alumni, our potentialities are unlimited. Many graduates are hesitant to take an active part in the work of the Alumni. on the grounds that :their little part would not affect the organization one way or another. This attitude immediartely defeats our purpose. There are eral. through the efforts of their individual, and sometimes insignificant, mem eral through the efforts of their individual, and sometimes insignificant, mem- bers.
