HIllllIllI3lHHlIUlI HIE slfccnss of any group or organi- zation depends largely upon the efficient leadership of the group. As principal, since its opening in 1927, ."Xll- derdice has heen fortunate in having Dr. Roland G. Deevers. He has capahly di- rected the policies of the school during its growth from a small high school to that of a fair sized community. Intro-- duction in Allderdice of modern educa- tional trends, growth of Allderdicc as one of the highest ranking high schools!-in short, much of the success of Alldcrdice may be attributed to Dr. Roland G. Deevers. Our tenth anniversary marks the first year of Mr. Glaes' service as vice-prin- cipal of Taylor Allderdice. If his brief year of effective management is any in- dication, the years will luring him further outstanding success in this capacity.

UUH SCHUUL N FEBRUARY 7. 1927, the first classes were conducted in the Taylor Allderdice new high school on Squirrel Hill. The building was one of the finest and mo-st modern of the schools in the country. Since then a large annex has been built to accommodate the fast-gr-owing number o-f pupils which has in- creased from six hundred eighty-nine to approximately 1 three thousand two- hundred fifty. Of the thirty-four original instructors twenty-three remain among the one hundred twelve teachers at the present. Allderdice has grown.from a junior high school to the largest high school in western Pennsylvania., As Allderdice has grown, many important organizations for the improvement and management -of school affairs have arisen. The Student Council, which was begun in September, 1929, and has progressed efficiently, is one of the most helpful and influential groups in determining the school's policy. The Foreword, which is the school's newspaper, has exerted quite an influence at Allderdice. There are many other athletic, scholastic, and non-scholastic clubs and organiza- tions which have not only been quite useful in helping the pupils use their leisure in a worthwhile manner -but also in broadening their knowledge and developing good character. In june 1930, the first class of fifty graduated from Taylor Allderdice. Since that time the classes have increased until the present class which is onegof the largest. Every class has given a gift of some sort to improve the appear- ance of Allderdice or benefit the pupils of the school in some 111?l111'1C1'. The honor students of Allderdice graduate not only with honor, but they also may be members of the National Honor Society. Students who have honor grades and good character are chosen as members of this honorary society although not more than fifteen per cent of the class may be chosen. There have been ten thousand pupils at Allderdice during its first ten years, and most of them have some sort of pleasant feeling toward our school and the ideals for which it stands: schol- arship, tolerance, initiative, cooperation, obedience, honesty, and good judgment. 9
