AND SCHOOL BOAB
SUPERI TE DE T
Working closely together in order to plan the
best policies for the Ames school system were
Mr. Walter Hetzel, Superintendent of schools,
and the school board. One of the main problems
under consideration this year was how to house
the growing number of pupils in all the schools.
The first unit ot the new high school, to be ready
in the tall ot 1960, will be part of the solution
to this problem. In addition, the curriculum in
many schools was changed and adapted where
needed, and new courses and books were
chosen to tit these changes.
Mr. Hetzel was responsible for seeing that
the policies ot the school board were carried out.
The school board, which met on the second Mon-
day ot' every month, determined the budget for
all the' schools and planned the changes that are
necessary. This year, president of the board was
Mr. Frank E. Adams, Mr. Frank Howell was sec-
retary, and Mr. Hiram Munn was treasurer.
SCHOOL BOARD: Don S. Stevens, Mrs. Lee Rosebrook, Thomas E. Hannum, Frank B. Howell, Walter L. Hetzel, Frank E. Adams, Mrs. Julia Cole
Welden, Herbert B. Howell, and Dr. J. M. Walter.

In his sixteenth year as the high school ad-
ministrator, Mr. Herbert Adams was in charge
of a great many various student and school af-
fairs. He co-ordinated activities to the best ad-
vantage of both students and teachers, he plan-
ned many school functions: he arranged the sche-
dule of classes at the beginning of each new
semester and helped students with scheduling
problems, he presided over the sound system
every morning, and he was always willing to
discuss with any student pertinent school ques-
This year Mr. Adams was presented with many
additional problems as preparation was made to
move certain classes to the first building of the
new high school. Involved in this transition
were the completion of architectural plans, the
ordering of additional books and supplies, and
coordinating affairs between the two schools.
Many difficulties have yet to be eliminated, a task
that will require the combined efforts of both
students and teachers.
