Projectionists Provide Pictures . These eighth and ninth grade boys have the knowledge of the Beginning Projectionists and have gone on to more advanced work. They work during the day at var- ious times in the Audio Visual room helping both students and the teachers with the machinery. They are (from left to right): Dennis Schaaf, Ed Zbacnick, Dennis Arnold, Rick Ormiston, Ron Dick, Mr. Hart, )im Buchan- an, Steve Shannon, Dave Han- auer, and Dennis Miller. The Beginning and Advanced Projectionists serve a great service during the school year to both faculty and students. They learn how to handle the audio visual material and aid the teachers in preparing classroom instructional aids. The student body and faculty both owe these boys a big vote of thanks. The Beginning Projectionists, also under Mr. Hart ' s guidance, is a club for students who are interested in learning the basic skills of operating audio visual machinery. Most of these boys will join the advanced pro- jectionists ranks next year. They are (left to right): David MacPherson, Redie Bordeman, Mark Lohrman, Ron Blessing, Mr. Hart, Bart Buechner, Scott Lombard, Steve Fuller, Gregg Warren, and Mike Southern.

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.

Talking, Traveling, and Typing . Pictured at the left is the Foreign Language Club. Its purpose is to learn more about languages and lands. The club members meet one afternoon a week and study their languages; French or Spanish. The students listen to tapes and records and read pamphlets to learn more about both the language and the country which it is from. They enjoy learning to speak the language and are preparing for more extensive study in their freshman year. The stu- dents keep a notebook and use a textbook just as the regular classes do. Mr. Allen directs the Spanish Club and the French Club is under the guidance of Mrs. Swafford. Shown from left to right are: Jennifer Johnson, French; Leonard Wadewitz, Spanish; and Debbie Mann, French. The goal of the Geography and Travel Club is to see and learn as much as possible, and to understand people and their way of living. To accom plish this, they are using books, stories, and guest speakers. The club is spon- sored by Mr. Eberhart, a new teacher at Northwood this year. When this picture was taken, the group was preparing to view slides which were taken by Mr. Johnson. Through information about other lands and parts of the world, the students learn to understand other people and their way of living. Some of the places which the group has " visited " this year are Europe, Egypt, India, and many parts of the United States. They have also taken two field trips in Fort Wayne. The " travel hounds " who make up this club are: (left to right) Mr. Eberhart, Stan Gerber, Chris Kessens (Seated), Paual Fox, William Stein, Larry Evans, and Steve Fuller. Shown here is the Beginning and Advanced Typing Club. Their director is Mrs. Craw. The club, consisting of about twelve members, are interested in learni ng the basic typing skills. The advanced group works primarily to increase speed and accuracy at the typewriter. The group meets one after- noon a week to practice. At these sessions, practice sheets are distributed and the typists use them at the meeting and at home during the following week. Typing is an accomplishment to be proud of and these students are obtaining it early so it may be of greater use to them in the years to come.
