convenience of the students, and a student should 
select his course and complete it. However any 
student presenting 16 units for graduation must 
offer 3 units in English; 1 unit in Science, 1 unit 
in History or Civics, and 2 units in Mathematics. 
Students completing the Domestic Science Course

a certificate can, under any circumstances hope to 
graduate, short of three semesters. 



RULES AND REGULATIONS 

OF THE 

BOARD OF EDUCATION 



PRINCIPAL 

It shall be the duty of the Principal to call a 
meeting of the faculty at least once each four weeks 
for the purpose of considering matters pertaining 
to the interest of the school. He may call a meet- 
ing at any other time if in his judgment it is im- 
portant. 

He may appoint a committee of four teachers to 
act with himself as a faculty advisory body, with 
jurisdiction in matters pertaining to scholarship, 
discipline and other school affairs. 

He shall have jurisdiction in cases of discipline, 
and shall report to the Board of Education matters 
which he considers sufficiently serious. 

In connection with the faculty he shall lend all 
possible aid to the outside schools of the county 
which may be doing high school work. 

He shall have charge of the buildings and 
grounds at all times during the sessions, and shall 
be responsible for their keeping. 

TEACHERS 

Vacancies in the regular teaching force caused 
bj' illness or unavoidable absence shall be fdled by 
some one selected by the Principal who shall im- 
mediately notify the High School Board of the va- 



cancy and the name of the substitute. Substitutes 
must be paid by the teacher whose position has 
been filled. 

Teachers are required to report one week before 
the opening of the school year and be subject to 
the call of the Principal. All teachers shall remain 
during the week following the close of the school 
year, and as much longer as the school board may 
require, for completing the work of the year and 
arranging for that of the new year. 

The teachers shall make any reports requested by 
the Principal or Board of Education. 

Teachers desiring supplies must hand into the 
Principal's office a written requisition for the same, 
the last Friday of each month. 

STUDENTS 

Every student who has been absent or tardy, 
must bring a written excuse from parent or guard- 
ian. Parents wishing to have students excused be- 
fore the regular time will please send a written re- 
({uest. Dental and other engagements can and 
sliould be made for times outside of school hours. 

Students are expected to conduct themselves as 
ladies and gentlemen with a due regard for pro- 
priety. The Princii)al has power to suspend any 
stuck'iil for wilful disobedience, open defiance of 
the authority of any high school teacher, profanit3% 
vulgarity, truancy, persistent neglect of work, or 
irregularity of allendance, for use of tobacco on 
the school grounds or on the way to and from 
school or for any conduct considered detrimental 
to the best interest of the school. The authority 
of the school extends bevond school hours and the 



school grounds and especially to all times and

class rooms or assembly. No canvassing or adver- 
tising of any kind shall be permitted on the school 
premises. Lists of students are not to be given 
out except with the permission of the Board of 
Education. 



COURSE OF STUDY 



It is the purpose of the High School to offer 
courses of study which will do the greatest amount 
of good to the greatest number of students. The 
majority of high school students never go to col- 
lege, but take up some work when they leave the 
High School, therefore, unless they are sure that 
they are going to college they should try to select 
some course which will prepare them best to do 
what they wish to do, when they leave the High 
School. 

Students, who later in their course decide to go 
to college, can usually, without any difficulty, take 
the subjects required for college entrance. 

Those students who are reasonably certain of go- 
ing to college should register in the college prep- 
aratory course, and if they know what course they 
will pursue in college, follow the suggestions found 
on page 45.

MANUAL ARTS 



A foiir-3'ear course is offered in Manual Arts, in- 
cluding woodwork, forge, pattern making, machine 
shop and photography. Any course offered is so 
arranged that any boy may take as an elective a 
part or all of the manual art subjects. It is highly 
advisable that nearlj"^ every student take at least a 
year of such work. 

First Year — Wood-working — IB 

The course in woodworking is designed to give 
such training in the processes of elementary wood- 
working as will insure mastery of the common 
woodworking tools, acquaintance with drawings, 
the ability to design simple pieces of furniture, and 
practice in the sharpening and care of tools used. 
Special attention is given to planing, joining, glu- 
ing, sawing and chiseling. A start is made in 
wood turning, care of lathes, and use of the differ- 
ent tools, which work is completed in the second 
year. 

Forging — lA 

Perhaps no form of manual training involves 
greater dexterity of hand, accuracy of eye and 
quickness of thought than smith work. From the 
first sim])le exercises in "drawing out," the neces- 
sity of striking while the iron is hot is impressed 
firmly on the mind of the pupil, and instant judg- 
ment is brought into continual play. 

Drawing, bending, twisting, upsetting, welding, 
shaping of wrought iron, the annealing, hardening, 

li 



tempering, and working ol" high carbon steels arc 
given careful attention in the course. 

Second Year — Pattern Making 2B 

First is taken up a studj' of the proper materials 
and tools used in the art, the principles involved in 
the construction of patterns and especially those of 
draft and shrinkage; secondly, the tempering and 
mixing of sands used in general foundry practice; 
thirdly, bench work with snap flasks and solid 
small ilasks, and the molding of small patterns 
made by the student. 

Machine Shop — 2A 

As a preparation for the work each machine is 
carefully studied, its construction and various mo- 
tions, the office of each nut, bolt, screw and part. 
Actual work is begun with a series of exercises, 
such as plain turning, facing, thread cutting, inside 
boring and threading, turning of tapers, and chuck 
work of all kinds. Later, the pupil is given work 
on the drill presses, miller, shaper and grinder. 

Third and Fourth Years 

After the completion of one year of machine 
shop practice the pupils are permitted to enter any 
one of the shops in which they may wish to make 
themselves proficient in advanced work. These 
pupils are given individual attention and at the 
beginning of the year their courses are planned by 
the instructor. Their needs are carefully studied, 
and each individual requirement is met. This plan 
of shaping the course to the individual has proved 
most satisfactory for advanced pupils. 

Photography 

Pupils who have completed one year of advanced 
machine shop practice may elect photography. In 



15 



general, the course consists in instruction in the 
care and mechanism of the camera, tray develop- 
ment, negative making, intensifying and reducing, 
printing, exterior and interior photography, flash 
light photography, copying and enlarging.

employed here two periods each week. All pal- 
terns made in the wood shop musl be tested in the 

16 



nioIdint> room for draft before acceptance by the 
instructor. The ecjuipinent consists of: 

12 Obcnicycr Flasks. 

16 Riddles. 

12 Bellows.

shop, is being added each year. A print w^ashing 
machine, capable of thoroughly washing 150 prints 
per hour, has recently been completed, and an elec- 
tric printing machine is in use. The equipment 
consists of:

COMMERCIAL 



The Commercial Department offers a regular 
four-year course and all students of the average 
high school age who wish commercial work, are 
advised to pursue this course. Students may, by 
consent of the Head of the Department, register for 
a two-year course, but unless they are of a mature 
age, such registration will be discouraged. The 
immature student needs the added years of training 
and a chance to take not only more vocational 
work, but also the cultural elective, than he can 
crowd into two years. The following courses are 
offered : 

First Year — Bookkeeping 

Thirty-six weeks, ten periods per week. This 
will be carried on partly as class work. Regular 
recitations will be held and the class will be kept 
doing the same work as much as possible. Still 
there will be plenty of room for the ambitious stu- 
dent to progress rapidly. 

First Year — Spelling 

Thirty-six weeks, five periods per week. In ad- 
dition to drill in spelling, pronunciation and mean- 
ing of words this work includes the use of words 
in business letter writing. 

An average of 90 per cent in the work of the first 
year will excuse the pupil from that of the second 
year. 

ARITHMETIC — Thirty-six weeks, five periods per 
week. Drill in the use of arithmetic in business 
practice. Rapid methods and checks, 



18

English list studied in class. 

Second Year — Bookkeeping 

Thirty-six weeks, ten periods per week. This is 
a continuation of the work of the first year. Pu- 
pils who complete the required work in time may 
be given advanced practice. 

In the four-year commercial course, pupils who 
have taken the course in advanced arithmetic in 
their second year will be able to acquire a sufficient 
added knowledge of business arithmetic in conjunc- 
tion with their work in bookkeeping. 

BUSINESS PRACTICE— This work is carried on 
in conjunction with the bookkeeping. Tlie pro- 
gress and the ability of the student to master the 
preliminary work in bookkeeping governs the time 
when he commences business practice. 

Second Year — Spelling 

Thirty-six weeks, five periods per week. A con- 
tinuation of the work of the first year, substituting 
as far as possible typewriting for spelling: 

In the four-year commercial course, this require- 
ment is met in one year's work.

21 



AGRICULTURE 



First Year — 

The work of the first year's course will lay the 
foundation upon which the remaining agriculture 
courses rest. Its purpose is to show that a knowl- 
edge of the sciences, especially botany, chemistry, 
and physics is necessary in scientific farming. In 
other words, the course will emphasize the useful- 
ness of scientific knowledge to the farmer. The 
work will be carried out by means of lectures, ex- 
periments, demonstrations, field trips, and refer- 
ence reading. 
Second Year — 

Dairying, Animal Husbandry, 
Poultry Husbandry 

The work in dairying will be a study of the dairy 
breeds of cattle, care and management, rations for 
dairy cows, the production and handling of milk, 
Babcock test for butter fat, butter making, and 
marketing milk. 

Under animal husbandry will be studied the 
origin and development of farm animals, feeding 
farm animals, care and management, common dis- 
eases of farm animals and their treatment. 

Poultry husbandry will take up artificial incuba- 
tion of eggs, brooding of chicks, rations for egg 
production, rations for fattening fowls, care and

out orchards, spraying, irrigating, pruning, and 
also work in nursery practice. The work will be 
carried on in the field as far as it is possible to 
do so. 

The floriculture course will deal with the pro- 
duction of cut flowers grown under glass and for 
commercial purposes. Most of this work will be 
done in the green house. 

Olericulture is concerned with the growing of 
vegetables and the course will deal with the subject 
both from the standpoint of the home garden and 
from that of market gardening. This course will 
be largely field work. 

Fourth Year — 

Farm Crops, Soils, Farm Machinery 
and Farm Management 

The course in farm crops will deal with the ce- 
real crops of economic value, forage crops and 
pastures. 

The course in soils will deal with the formation 
of soils, kinds of soils and their management, cover 
crops, mulches, humus, soil elements, and crop 
rotations. 

Farm machinery will be a study of the common 
farming implements, their construction, and their 
uses. 

The farm management course will Ijc a sort of 
review of the agriculture course which has extend- 
ed throughout the four years of high school. It 
will make practical application of the fundamental 
principles which have been learned. 

Special Course in Agriculture 

For pupils over 18 years of age, whose appli- 
cation is approved by the principal and the superin- 
tendent of schools, there is provided a one year's

ing, carpentry and blacksmithing, and 630 hours 
on agriculture, including botany, horticulture, ani- 
mal husbandry, soils and crops. One hour each 
day will be devoted to each of the following: Shop 
mathematics and English, elementary chemistry, 
introducing soil analysis. 

When the student leaves, a certificate will be is- 
sued him setting forth his proficiency.

DRAMATICS 

This course is an alternative for English 3 or 4. 
It is a cultural course with a two-fold purpose, i. e., 
(1) To acquaint the pupil with the Historj^ of the 
Drama and the New Tendencies of the Drama. (2) 
To give the pupil stage presence and help his 
enunciation and voice development. 

The first semester takes up the History of the 
Drama from the Aristotelian Greek Drama througli 
the Drama of (ioldsmith and Sheridan. 

The second semester takes up the New Movement 
in the Drama, and a study of the chief contem- 
porary dramatists. 

The work of both semesters is supplemented l)y 
reading certain representative dramas; and the 
work in expression is carried on through both 
semesters. 

The classes will l)e small, and certain restric- 
tions will be placed on the freedom to enter the 
course. Those wishing to enter the course must 
consult the instructor some time between Sept. 1st 
and the beginning of school,

SCIENCE 



First Year 

(iencral Science, thirty-six weeks, five periods a 
week. The subject is treated from the point of 
view of natural science in general rather than from 
the points of view of the several subdivisions there- 
of. Clark's General Science is used as a reference 
for class use and aside from this students are as- 
signed some collateral reading. A certain amount 
of laboratory work is required. 

Second Year

a week. The subject matter of any one of the 
standard high school texts is taken as the basis for 
the work. Arey, Bryant, Clendenin and Morey's 
Physiography and Smith, Stahl and Sykes' labora- 
tory manual in physical geography are in use. 
Tarr's New Physical Geography is also used as a 
supplementary text.

11, 1916. This course for the present year will be 
open to 2nd, 3rd and 4th year students. 

Third Year 

Chemistry, thirty-six weeks, seven or eight per- 
iods a week. This is strictly a laboratory course, 
using as a basis Smith's High School Chemistry and

principal elements, valence, law of definite and mul- 

31 



tiple proportion and is preparatory and prerequi- 
site to the first course in chemistry given in the 
Junior College. 

HOUSEHOLD CHEMISTRY— This covers a 
year's work. It is especially for girls who take do- 
mestic science and who do not expect to go to col- 
lege. Snell's Household Chemistry is recom- 
mended. 

Fourth Year 

Physics, thirty-six weeks, seven or eight periods a 
week. Milliken and Gale's Short Course in Physics

each, ten periods a week are offered. The work 
consists entirely in actual assays of ore samples and 
some instruction on ore deposits and important 
minerals associated with them. Beringer's text- 
book of Assaying, Griffin & Co., London, is used as 
a reference. 



HISTORY 



The student should be led to distinguish the es- 
sential points in history. Special attention should 
be attached to the development of movements of 
far reaching importance to civilization. Mere 
memorizing of facts and dates is to be avoided. 
Abstracts should be used only to train the pupil to 
get at the gist of the subject. Whatever note-book 
work or map drawing is required must be done 
neatly and accurately. 

ANCIENT HISTORY— Thirty-six weeks, five per- 
iods per week. This subject is a condensation of 
the usual one year's work in the history of Greece 
and Rome and that portion of European history 
closing about 800 A. D. The development of civ- 
ilization; the growth of institutions; the rise and 
fall of nations, with the study of the reasons for 
both their success and failure. Special attention 
should be given to the successive westward move- 
ments which have resulted in the present location 
of European peoples. 

MEDIAEVAL AND MODERN HISTORY— Thirty- 
six weeks, five periods per week. From the year 
800 to the present time. Special attention given 
to racial movements and to the development of 
civilization. The growth of the modern forms of 
government. Details of English history are to be 
omitted. 

ENGLISH HISTORY— Thirty-six weeks, five per- 
iods per week. This should be a development of 



the history of the Enghsh race in its social, indus- 
trial, political and constitutional aspects, 

HISTORY AND GOVERNMENT OF THE UNIT- 
ED STATES — Thirty-six weeks, five periods per 
week. A consideration of the growth, development 
and progress of the American nation and its insti- 
tutions. Special attention should be given to pres- 
ent social, industrial and political conditions of the 
nation. In civics, the duties of citizenship should 
be emphasized and attention given to the question 
of municipal government. 

HISTORY OF COMMERCE— This course will 
take up the history of commerce from the earliest 
times and trace the growth down to the present 
time, taking especial account of geographic, eco- 
nomic and political factors. 



34

37 



DRAWING 



MECHANICAL DRAWING 

The first year aims to give the student a knowl- 
edge of the use of the instruments, an ability to 
read drawings and an intelligent appreciation of the 
varied use of drawings. 

The work starts with geometrical constructions, 
lettering, copy plate work, advancing as rapidly as 
possible to orthographic projection and then to 
very simple working drawings. 

The second year the student starts with drawings 
of simple machine parts from models such as check 
valves, globe valves, gate valves, injectors, etc., 
which he takes apart for the purpose of making 
both the detail and assembly drawing. More let- 
tering work is given in the early part of the year. 
Tracing and blueprinting are also given. 

During tlic latter part of the year the student 
who desires to specialize in architectural drawing 
is given an opportunity to do so. 

The third year the student should be able to 
make drawings of complete machines and he is 
started on drawings of machines in the different 
shops, tlicn given some machine outside of the 
school to make sketches of and obtain measure- 
ments sufficient to enable him to make complete 
details and assembly in the drawing room. The 
arcliitectural student is given a list of requirements 
including cost, size and direction of frontage of a 
lot, number and arrangement of rooms, and other 
data supposedly from a client and is obliged to 

38 



work up a set of plans, specifications and contrac- 
tor's contract. 

The fourtli year student is oblii^cd to do a great 
deal of figuring of costs and other executive work 
in addition to the drawing work. The drawing 
work in this last year is planned to supplement as 
much as possible the special line of work that tlic 
student has selected and is entirely individual work. 

FREEHAND DRAWING 

The Art Department presents a varied course to 
suit the abilities of the student. It ranges from 
copy plate work, drawing geometrical figures, con- 
ventional design, casts of the human face and form 
in pen and cliarcoal, to illustrating, designing and 
painting in water color, pastel, or oil. 

The aim of the department is not merely to 
train the hands to guide the pencil, l)ut to train the 
perception, to broaden the power of observation, 
strengthen the ability to express oneself and give a 
keener appreciation of the beautiful. 

The first work is in outhne and light and shade, 
from geometrical figures and kindred subjects. 
From these the work is carried up the scale as fast 
as the student is capable, regardless of the pro- 
gress of his neighbor who may be more or less 
talented, speciahzing in perspective first, and then 
chiroscuro. 

During the second credit year the student is al- 
lowed to take up color, if he shows the proper 
amount of ability and energy, and should be able to 
do some very creditable illustrating or color work. 



39 



MUSIC 



Students, who have taken music during the year 
1915-16, will find a course in second year music 
open to them. 

Beginning students will enter the regular first 
year classes unless permission is granted by the 
instructor, to enter the second year class. 

There will be a band and an orchestra and credit 
will be given according to the time expended.
