TI-LE-QEE HIVE f f 5 f 364 NEW TEACHERS THINK B-EHRMAN IS OUTSTANDING By Arline Rustin Many new faculty members have been teaching at Behrman School during the past year. 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. I hope to be back to join no match for Behrman's faculty a member of the faculty and a MBHSf PUPILS REAP BENEFITS OF WORK OF BEHRMAN BAND PARENTS' CLUB By Joe Bergeronand Lloyd Lawrence Members of the Behrman Band Parents' Club worked very hard this year for the funds that will be needed next year by the Band. 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.

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. K. A MBHS' The tour .through the museum was most educational. Some of the most in- teresting things on exhibit were Nicoya Polychrome ware from Nicoya in- Costa Ricag sculpture in both clay and stone from areas in Middle Americag clay heads from the Totonac Region, Mexicog a model of a Maya pyramindg a skull with turquoise-inlaid teethg textiles and masksg marble vesselsg Zapotec incense burn- ersg treasures from the seag jewelryg and the interior of an ancient tomb. 363'

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
