Editor, Terry Dwycr Assistant, Mary Herrick 30 Enrolled In Foreign Language r.y Chris Dltlmar '•Lingua Barbara'. which to most of you is Creek, is not. Instead its meaning lies in the wonders of the Latin language. Translated into English, it means "foreign language." or really, "language foreign." because in this language the adjectives comb after the nouns. You may take its meaning literally, since it is a foreign language In almost every one in Humbold! high. That is. except to a small group of less than 30 students and one teacher. Miss Grocn- dykc. formerly of Central College in Pclla. where she graduated in June. 1962. Miss Grocndykc majored in English and minorcd in Latin and Spanish in college. While student teaching she taught second year Latin at Pclla High School. In her class at HumboUIt her students learn to pronounce and read Latin but do not converse in class. To understand Latin you must be an average or above average student with a good knowledge of English grammar. In this class the student docs a great deal of memory work, since a noun may have 10 different endings, while a verb has as many as 30 endings according to the different tenses when it is conjugated. Students arc learning to improve their English grammar, increase •.heir vocabulary, and obtain a background of World History indirectly through the method of study which they follow. If yoii think this is a snap course ask saiiie of our students who have liken ,nn exam from Miss Groe.ii- dyke. These exams include trans- la'ung ol either Latin or English words, and tin- translating of sentences. Occasionnllv she civs a vocabulary test which I understand iiidKt-s her pupils really think. !••!> \%«'l \l.

How would you feel if you just arrived in a strange, new country and the only person that you cared about was dead? That's how Julian Day found himself when he reached America in 1774. His father had died at soli a few days before his arrival. Now Julian was on the threshold of an entirely different world, and ho knew of no place or person to which he could turn. But fortunately for Julian 'he was befriended by hospitable Virginians. Although Julian had no real home, since his mother had died when he was a baby, he decided to return to England just as soon as he had earned his passage fee. Since he was an educated man, he was able to get a job as school master. Even though Julian had planned to remain in the colonies for only a very short while, the years managed to slip by. During this time he had met and talked to George Washington. Patrick Henry, and Thomas Jefferson, all of which spoke of independence. He thought that those men who dared to rise up against the King of England would surely be caught, tried for treason, and hanged. They were putting their heads into a noose just to think of such a thing. Itchcars.ils for this year's Senior Class Play. "My Three'Angels", beg.'in Oct. 8.
