The following dialogue occurred: Miss Coppock: Fred, please don't act so self-conscious just because Phylliss is here. Fred Clarke : Aw, I'm ~ot con- scious. And then we wonder what the play will be like. Members of Miss McClure's first period typing class have exchanged their typewriters for different ones. This was done in order that the stu- dents might become more familiar with different types of machines. 11 II ~ "e The Junior Business Training class is making charts to illustrate ways of saving money. The charts are indi- vidual, one showing the value of en- dowment insurance, two others show pensions, and the others are combina- tions of more than one method of saving. During clothing selection class last week, the girls studied and discussed their particular types and personali- ties. This was very interesting and the girls enjoyed it very much.
