SCIENTIFIC MINDS AND GREAT PHYSIQUES
Crash! Boom! Bang! Any of these sounds could be heard coming from a science lab on
any laboratory day and some even during a. lecture period. It seems that some students
are very anxious to use their five-dollars' worth of equipment. Hardly a day goes by that
some of the hopeful amateur chemists donit drop a test tube, spill acid on their hands or mix
concoctions that emit such atrocious odors that they are practically gagged.
Many a scientist-to-be would have given up long ago if it were not for the encourage-
ment of our esteemed instructors, Mr. Ramage, Mr. Olson, Mr. Roedel, and Mr. Lindgren.
Mr. Dalton, the mystery man of B.H.S., left soon after the first semester to teach chem-
istry at a junior military academy at Joplin, Missouri and was replaced by Mr. Lindgren.
Don't think that chemistry is the only science that is offered in our school. Biology,
general science, and physics are also offered. The promising biologists have a great time
disecting frogs and get a few gray hairs trying to classify animals to the nth degree, While
the physicists try to get the intricate parts of a motor and the principles of electricity
through their heads.
The biology department, headed by Wallace Ramage, is indebted to the generosity of
Colonel C. B. Little who donated several new plants to the collection they already have.

If you take the co-tangent of the circle and set it equal to the subordinate sine, divide
it by the result you obtained when you cleared your adjacent triangular hypotenuse by the
transversal quadratic, multiply that by D sub 47 to the sixth power, worry over you slide
rule for several hours or so, and perhaps you'll end up in the basement of the field house
some cold, Windy night in August. Should you ever become lost, set your compass to the
various math rooms Where you may find Mr. Hook teaching navigation. If, perchance,
you would find some quaint little problem arising in the grocery store, for instance, you
might have Mrs. Anderson's practical math class help you out. The board of directors of
our school have hung up an "Information" sign on Miss Huff's door where her geometry
classes, both plane and solid, are answering the farmers' questions concerning the capac-
ities of their siloes, or corn cribs.
Such is the hubbub of our daily mathematics. The schedules of the classes are strenu-
ous and the burden on our teachers is tremendous, but the dogged determination of the
typical B.H.S. student and teacher has made our math department "tops"

SCDCIAL. SCIENCE .
Social Science is by far one of the most important departments in the curiculum of
Bismarck High School. Some phase of it is required for every year and is the continual
worry of many of our would-be genii.
Due to the crisis in the world today, the history classes, World History under the
supervision of Mrs. Pollard and American History instructed by Miss Evarts, have tried to
stimulate an increasing interest in current affairs and the factors in the history of the
world which have led us into the present turmoil.
The orientation classes with Mr. Nelson at the head have done their bit for national
defense by taking the standard Red Cross First Aid course. If you ever cut your finger
or sprain an ankle, just call on one of our beloved t?J Frosh, and you will be fixed up as
good as new in no time, you hope!
Mr. Murdock, a newcomer this year, has taken over the civics and sociology classes
with great efficiency. Also included in this course is the National Safety Driving course
which the seniors must pass in order to get a diploma. Although many of the upper-upper
classmen, seniors to you, know how to drive, it has consisted chiefly of pushing a button
here or a pedal there, and they acquired a few gray hairs over the technical parts of
