Miracle - of Science?


the infamous experiment

CAPTION FOR PHOTOGRAPH:
"Don Dale demonstrates use of the retort in his project."

     "A new organization in the school is the Science Club, which was formed with the purpose of providing a meeting place for students with like interests; another purpose has been to provide a time in which discussions concerning events, discoveries, and inventions might take place. The opportunity to further one's scientific knowledge and to develop a project in some particular field of science proved a worthy incentive for many students and gave them the chance to work with their hands as well as their minds.
     "The Science Club provided a center for scholarship information in various fields of science. A sure reward for each member was the realization that he could use his mind to a greater extent and that he could go beyond the scope of a classroom textbook into self-experimentation and/or research, the basis of future textbooks."
