ot cz oments Qeczce One of the most pleasant experiences at Davis was being a member of Mr. Child's staff of RE- CEPTIONISTS, who greeted the various guests at the Hilltop and directed them to their destina- tions about the building. These girls, who were chosen for their attractive looks, pleasant per- sonalities, and capability, were stationed at desks situated in the foyer just inside the main en- trance to the building and in the anteroom out- side of Mr. Child's office. There they exhibited their charms upon the many who visited Davis during the past year-including the many re- turning veterans lcould be that was why so many girls sought this servicell. Not a few of the guests at Davis have commented upon the effi- ciency of these future secretaries. There certainly was never a dull moment while rendering this service to the school. Quite often a veteran or a serviceman, who hadn't seen the inside of Davis in many a year, would wander through our doors and be welcomed by one of the receptionists. Returning to his old Alma Mater, the vet would wonder what condition Davis was in, and no one was better fitted to in- form him than these girls. Together they would laugh over Pop Phillip's unorthodox method of teaching and how he would get a girl to speak up by threatening to "come down and sit with you l" The student-faculty game never ceased to be a topic of conversation nor did the wonder- ful l?l and strange aromas that drifted about the halls after the chemistry class's latest attempt to blow up the building. And then there was George, the old standby, who was always faithful to all Davisites, welcoming back all those who wanted to return. But the' receptionists did much more than just this. They helped parents deliver lunches to their forgetful offsprings, and aided in the office by running errands. They certainly were a big help to all concerned. Another group of girls who helped Davis un- selfishly were those on the SERVlCEMEN'S COMMITTEE, headed by Mariana Weidt, who helped keep the Honor Roll up to date. They scanned "The Daily Argus" for the names of former Davisites who were in the armed forces. After checking to make certain that the fellow was an alumnus of the l-lilltop, the girls looked to see if his name was on the l-lonor Roll posted just outside of the office. Usually it was, for an accurate check was kept on all those who left Davis, but if for some reason it was missing, then the name was given to Mariana who cor- rected the situation. These girls per- formed praiseworthy service to Davis and its servicemen. SERVlCEMEN'S COMMlTTEE lTopl C. Waechter, C. Taylor, j. Bliss, B. Lockwood RECEPTIONISTS lLeftl Row l: j. Meserole, l.
