Long speeches and short ones, debates, and discussions, orations and phonetics—these re- hearsed in the classes of MRS. HARRIETT MUELLER helped us to gain confidence and poise. From quivering knees and stammering tongues we gradually became able to speak in public without a flutter. Then the art of dra- matics was introduced to us the second semes- ter, and memorizing lines for one act plays become daily routine. Indians and frightening old ladies met in the hall were merely the result of our lessons in make-up, while stage crews and technicians learned the fun of back stage duties. To climax the semester’s work we wrote and produced an original one act play. Page 9

When we first came to Senior High School, we continued our study of English under the guiding light of MISS RUTH SINKS, or perhaps MR. HOWARD EVANS. We tried to straighten out our adjectives and adverbs, commas and semi-colons, our whos and whoms. We followed the trials of Silas Marner and the adventures of King Arthur. As jun- iors under MRS. HARRIETT MUELLER, we entered into the world of American literature peopled by Thomas Jefferson, Mark Twain, and Carl Sandburg. Incidentally we struggled with spelling and verbs. During our senior year with Miss Sinks we took wings across the sea to become acquainted with Chaucer, Milton, and Galsworthy. Finally we settled down in our last semester to write endless themes, de- termined to become complete masters of our native tongue. Page 8

Page 10 The familiar cloud of chalk dust, the bang of rulers, and the murmur of “‘ciphering’’ students gave evidence of the math classes. MISS BERNICE FITES and MR. CARMEN FABIAN took turns in directing our paths through the intricacies of geometry, advanced algebra, and trigonometry. Logarithms, square roots, sines and cosines took new meaning when we realized the important part precision instruments, en- gineéering projects, and global airways will play in winning the peace.
