HOME ECONOMICS CLUB COOKS ALSO DANCE AT "SHINDlG" The Ahea Club held its an- nual dance on November 12 at the High School. The theme was the formal opening of a "Bubble Club" in which programs, dec- orations, and refreshments were carried out with bubbles and bal- loons. The president, Mary Hel- en Boyd, was the mistress of ceremonies. She announced sev- eral special dances, among which was an elimination dance. The refreshments were served by freshman and sophomore girls in bright colored aprons. The chap- erons were Mr. and Mrs. Dailey, Mrs. Hamlin, Mr. and Mrs. Dean, Mr. and Mrs. Burtsfield, Miss Meyers, ofiicers, and par- ents. Ofiicers for the year were: President Mary Helen Boyd Vice-President Ruth Holden Secretary-Treasurer Dorothy Anne Canfield AHEA ClUB HAS VARIED PROGRAMS The Ahea Club, a society or- ganized expressly for girls who are particularly interested in Home Economics, this year had one of its most successful sea- sons. A business meeting held at the High School on October 20 officially opened the c1ub's activ- ities for the year. At this meet- ing many things were discussed, particularly the programs which were to fill out the schedule, and the club budget. It was decided, after much debating on the sub- ject, that the dues should be set at thirty-five cents for the entire year. Many of the members be- came an even more integral part of the organization when they were appointed to posts on the program and finance committees. The program for this first meet- ing consisted of a short demon- stration of a new type vacuum cleaner. Dorothy Ann Canfield played hostess to the group at the next K I llllll1 I meeting. This was the Christ- mas party, and a pot luck supper answered the food problem for the evening. Frances Lloyd was another good Samaritan to the club. The Valentine party was given at her home, and was a great success. Valentine refreshments were served. At the second business meeting Miss Cora Faust from the Foster Shop gave an instruc- tive talk on wrapping Christmas presents. The most lucrative meeting of the season was held at Jefferson. The Jefferson Home Economics Club invited the club to attend a tea in their honor. AHEA CLUB Left to right, Row One: Julin, Burk- hart, Vestal, Holden, Boyd, Canfield, Hamlin, Ross.

DRAMATICS AT WEST SIDE MEMBERS VOICE IDEAS CONCERNING SPEECH ARTS CLUB Betty Doddtidge: The Speech Arts Club is to me one of the most interesting in the school. The club stands for a course that is needed and want- ed by all the members, that of the betterment of speech. The programs are invariably interest- ing and serve to teach, thus pro- moting the purpose of the club, as well as to give enjoyment. It is always interesting to listen to a speaker, who is absolutely sure of his subject, and the way that he presents it to his audience. This is what I have come to ex- pect from the Speech Arts Club, and I can truthfully say that I have never been disappointed. By way of variety, and also for the benefit of students in the club, the programs are some- times presented entirely by the members. This is an excellent way for discovering talent for fu- ture use in plays, convocations, and the like. This club is somewhat differ- ent from the other clubs in that the membership includes both boys and girls, a fact, which be- cause of its unusualness, might serve to enhance its unanimous popularity. :Ia :iz ,I ane Humphreys: I think that Speech Arts is a worth while organization for fur- thering of speech. One thing against it, is the way the dues are used. Why shouldn't the dues be used for the whole club, and not just the debaters? However, if it wasn't for Speech Arts, we couldn't arrange the debates with other schools. It also has brought us several good speakers, that we otherwise could not have heard. DEBATE SUPPORTED BY SPEECH ARTS One of the principal activities of the club is the sponsoring of the debate team. This group is made up of members of the speech class who wish to gain ex- perience along this line. Mrs. Mueller directs this group, which meets after school hours or dur- ing a free period. The reason for this is that there is no arrange- ment made for it on the regular schedule. The students who com- posed the teams this year were Virginia Vestal, Eloise Guirl, Ed Edwards, Peggy Howard, Faith Wayne, Quentin Ramsey, Vir- ginia Fox, and Marjorie Boll- man. The sectional debate was held in February at West La- fayette where West Side was sucessful in two out of four de- bates. The affirmative team beat Jefferson High School and lost to Brazil. The negative team won from Wiley of Terre Haute and lost to Crawfordsville. Out of the fourteen decision debates in which the teams participated, eight were victories. This is real- ly a commendable percentage especially considering that de- bating at West Side is a senior activity, while the teams at oth- er schools are made up of stu- dents who have debated for the past three or four years. PRENTICE PRESIDENT OF SPEECH ARTS The officers of the club must be members of the Speech class, except the representatives from the sophomore and junior classes. The club has had many dis- tinguished presidents in the past. From the classes of 1934 to the class of 1938 the presidents were: Bill Charles, Ruth Hall, Merton Clevett, Bob Keim, each holding office in succession dur- ing those years. MEETINGS MOST ENIOYABIE IN CURRENT HISTORY The club meets on the second Tuesday of each school month, and their entertainment covers a variety of different subjects. The programs during the past year have included a speaker who talked on Turkey and a variety hour at which Bob McAfee was master of ceremonies. Prizes were given at the latter, and Quentin Ramsey with Eloise Guirl received first prize for jit- terbugging. Virginia Riley took second prize for her singing of a popular favorite, and Virginia Creson walked away with third prize for a hill-billy interpreta- tion. One of the meetings consisted of a speech contest between the ex temporaneous speaking teams of Jefferson High and West Side. Bob McAfee, Virginia Fox, Faith Wayne, and Betty Lou Duncan upheld the honor of W. L. against Jeff. Meetings for the rest of the year included a talk on Colorado at which movies were featured, a one act play presented by the speech class along with a play given by another school, and the debate banquet. The program for each meeting is placed in charge of a committee made up of members from the club. PARTY MEETS WITH APPIAUSE Each year the Speech Arts Club contributes to the social life of the high school by spon- soring a dance, usually given sometime in the spring. This year's party was a great success, and was attended by a large ma- jority of the membership. The meetings of the last year have differed from the meetings in the past by having more out- side entertainment. 1-A'-' mr' -v

SCIENCE CLUB CELE- BRATES EIGHTH YEAR Since its origin in 1931, the Science Club, under the careful guidance of Miss Inskeep, has grown from a very small mem- bership until, at the present, it contains approximately one-sixth of the student body. During the S years of its existence the club has had as its object, the ideal of promoting the knowledge of an understanding of nature and sci- ence as we find them in our ev- eryday existence. Science Club meetings are us- ually held during the first week of each month. At these meetings projects and articles of interest are pre- sented and explained by various members. ACTIVITIES ARE UNLIMITED The activities of the Science Club are unlimited in scope. Many trips and talks are enjoyed yearly by members. One of the most interesting presented dur- ing the last school year was the discussion of the properties of Liquid Air by Dr. Allen of Pur- due. Dr. Allen gave an illustrated lecture on liquid air by using various experiments and demon- strations to prove his points. Another enjoyable and en- lightening lecture by Dr. Brady on "Swordiishing OH the North American Coast" was presented to the club. Numerous other Pur- due faculty members appeared before the club during the year. Many hikes and trips were also enjoyed by the club mem- bers throughout the year. Among the most interesting of these were the breakfast trip to the Purdue University Horticultural SCIENCE CLUB Left to right, Row One.' Newton.

Row Five: Underhill, Werner, Becker, Demaree, Harper, Reed, Termen- stein, Baynes, Mellon. Farm and a trip to see the Alum- inum plant, just completed, on the outskirts of the city. The group also viewed the stars and planets, through a tele- scope owned by one of the club members, Phyllis Baker. The annual fall outing includ- ed a ten-hour stand at Oakdale Dam and Gaylord's cottage on the Tippecanoe River. Much "devilment" was raised on this trip, especially at Gaylord's. The spring trip, yet undecided at the time of publication, was looked forward to with great en- thusiasm by all members. MEMBER OE I.J.A. OE S. The West Lafayette High School's Science Club is a mem- ber of the Indiana Junior Acad- emy of Science, which meets ev- ery fall. This year the state meeting was held at Purdue Uni- versity: thus many of the West Side members were able to at- tend. Donald Frier, prominent W. L. H. S. S. C. member, was elected vice-president of the state organ- ization, at this meeting. West Side's Club contributed its share to the displays at Pur- due.
