PUPILS REAP BENEFITS OF WORK OF BEHRMAN BAND
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'
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

BEHRMAN 'FIRST' AGAIN
By Joycelyn McMahon
It seems that Behrman has a penchant for being "fir-st." 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,
