As in other schools smaller num-
bers of students have elected Latin
in the last few years. As a consequ-
ence it was dropped from the lan-
guage offerings in September. How-
ever two freshmen are studying Latl
in with a private tutor during schooll
hours. To replace the scheduled Lat4
in courses, German was added to the
language department as a second
modern language. Miss Olson con-
ducts the new German course of
study. The students study grammar,
poetry, and simple literature. They
are doing some Brecht poetry which
is simple in grammar and vocabu-
lary, but very existential in thought.
The German students put their
German to use in the community by
sharing German Christmas Carols.
Many of the German students have
become interested in baking Ger-
man foods which they share with the
entire class. A "Wein probe" was also
held. This consisted of the class tast-
ing wines, which actually were soft
drinks since alcoholic beverages are
prohibited in the classroom.
The French department hopes to
continue its travel program through-
out the year. One Saturday excur-
sion to Montreal took place on No-
vember 17. lt included a visit to
Notre Dame Cathedral, to the
French patisserie in Ville Marie and
soupe a l'oignon and crepes in the
Crepe Bretonne ala Rue Montagne.
Plans are developing for a four day
trip to Quebec City during April
vacation. This voyage will acquaint
the students with a city on this side
of the Atlantic which is essentially
French in its appearance, language,
traditions and culture.

er-aide from France will spend nine

Art classes have continued to ex-
pand in enrollment and offerings.
Particular interests this year have
been in the area of ceramics, lapi-
dary work and drawing.
This year the band and chorus,
under the supervision of Richard
Wheeler, have been practicing in-
tensely to improve their talent and
add culture and entertainment to
the school and community. On
November 10, the band and chorus
of Vergennes, as well as other
schools combined their talents and
participated in a music festival. They
displayed their works and came up
with a finely composed concert.
