Musical Entertainment The Cadet Orchestra, under the tutilage of Mr. Morphew, meets every other Wednesday night after school to practice. This orchestra is training to be in Concert Orchestra next year. They have labored hard and have prepared themselves for various special performances during the school year. The Concert Orchestra looks forward to having this group join them next year, and Northwood is exceedingly proud of the superb work they are doing. ' 1 Wh « f iff li r 1 i i The Glee Club, guided by Mr. Coyle, meets alternate days during the first period and on Thursdays before home- room. These people had hoped to join Concert Choir last year, and will try again to qualify for this organization this year. The biggest qualification is co-operation and attitude. During the year they have enlightened various P.T.A. meetings with their singing. Our Glee Club has also joined the Concert Choir for several numbers. The Cadet Choir or seventh grade training choir, under the supervision of Mr. Coyle, works every Tuesday night during seventh period activities. The choir trains for Glee Club and Concert Choir which they look forward to joining next year. They learn the basic music fundamentals and have their first experience in singing in parts. This group also earns the first two points toward their individual letters. Both Concert Choir and Glee Club look for- ward to having these Cardinals in their groups next year.

Orchestras Provide . . . Members of the Concert Band directed by Mr. Morphew, works toward total perfection of their musical compositions. They are continually participating in pep sessions, varsity basketball and tournament games, concerts, and the Northern Indiana School Band Orchestra and Vocal Association. All in all, they have mastered many difficult musical arrangements and Northwood is very proud of its Concert Band. Also under Mr. Morphew ' s direction, Concert Orchestra is one of the best musical groups ever seen at Northwood. This group is composed of eighth and ninth graders who excel in the playing of the string instruments. This group practices hard to make themselves the good group that they are. They meet every other day during first period and on Tuesday afternoons. The orchestra has provided entertainment at both concerts and contests. Cadet Band, guided by Mr. Morphew, labors to improve their musical ability that they might be able to qualify for Con- cert Band next year. This organization has practiced after school on Wednesdays during the activity period and special other times. They have performed well at special times throughout the school year. This group shows quite a bit of promise and the Concert Band will be greatly aided by their services next year.

Self Government Self Study . . . The Student Council is the individual student way of making his opinion heard. The members spend much time discussing, developing, and adopting both new constitutions and laws and new plans for the school. In addition to this, they participate in many school functions, projects, and services with both the student body and administration. The students run this organization entirely by themselves with the guidance of Alan Linkous, serving as president. Karen Asche has fulfilled the office of vice-president and Debby White has served as secretary-treasurer. When the group needs knowledge or advice they turn to Mr. Gehl who is their faculty advisor. This group is a living example of democracy in action and in many cases is the first opportunity that many pupils have to be involved in such an instrument of democracy. The Independent Study group consisting of twenty-four eighth and ninth graders has devoted much free time and school time to working on their project. Each student chooses a subject of special interest to him. A few of these subjects include science, veterinary medicine, rocket design, paleontology, math, sewing, and therapy. Each student chooses an advisor who gets the student started and discusses the various problems which may occur with him. The students and advisor meet once a week to discuss the progress being made on the report. The student is issued a permanent pass, and is excused from the classes he feels he needs to miss in order to work on his project. This is a new system and it is still in the experimental stages and the students involved represent those who wish to go ahead on their own beyond the individual class work. Northwood is one of the few junior highs to have such a program and is very proud of those stu- dents who elect to do this.
