Agriculture, Home Ec and Science Clubs Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


The Agriculture boys of the 0. H. S. met in September and organized an Agriculture Club. They decided on "Future Farmers of America" as a name and elected the following officers: Harland Ridder, president; Lawrence Bittinger, vice-president; Otto Menear, secretary; Logan Weber, treasurer. The boys pay dues of 25 cents a month and are planning to use this money to go camping in June. Each fall the club holds a Father and Son banquet. 0. H. S. has had an Agriculture Club for several years and we want to say that this is one of the best.

On January 24 the Home Economics girls held a meeting to organize a Home-Ec. Club. The name chosen for the organization was "The Vocational Home Economics Club," and the motto voted on, "Keep the Home Fires Burning." The girls have ten goals to strive for: (1) To have good committees; (2) To have dependable officers; (3) To have willing members; (4) To have an educational program; (5) To have educational projects; (6) To help each member to find out about new things; (7) To carry on the meetings in an orderly way; (8) To have everyone take part in the programs; (9) To have each program centered around one topic; (10) To try to accomplish something worth while for the school.

This energetic club has certainly reached its last goal, for not only has it already presented several worth while programs to the school, but it has helped the Athletic Club a great deal with donations of money.

The officers elected include: President, Catherine Moon; vice-president, Lois Ross; secretary, Kathryn Spiker; treasurer, Virginia Fraley.

The Science Club of 0. H. S. was organized under the department of Natural Sciences. The purpose of the club is to furnish research in Science and to set up worthwhile objectives in that field; to develop an appreciation of the great men whose efforts have made our aims in life more easily obtainable, and finally come to the realization that our field is one of constant progress and wonder.
The following officers were elected: President, Charles Dodge; vice- president, Loring Steiding; secretary, Maurice Butler; treasurer, Wilbur Gnegy.
