Ui THE POST FACULTY As we seniors of 1947 start thinking about leaving high school, we want to remember the teachers that were teaching our last year. We have ten faculty members, five men and five women. Five of them have a last name starting with B. How about touring the building with us and meeting our teachers? As we come in the front door and turn left down the corridor, we find first the principal's office. Mr. G. R. Hamilton, who has had charge of the office for sixteen years, teaches world history and civics. He attended Hanover College in Hanover, Indiana, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree, and the University of Illinois for his Master of Arts degree. His early years were spent in Franklin, Indiana, but he has lived in Atwood during the years he has taught here. We leave the office just in time, for as we step out into the corridor again, we can hear the tapping of many typewriters in heavy use. When we take a peep inside the typing room, we find Mrs. Blanche Bishop. She has taught the commercial subjects-typing, bookkeeping and shorthand-for the past five years. Her educa- tion, other than high school, was received at Illinois State Normal, where she received her Bachelor of Education degree. Her home, previous to her home in Atwood, was Bement, Illinois. We retrace our steps past the principal's office to the drinking fountain, we find ourselves staring into the room of Mrs. Louise Bean, who teaches English II and III and drama and has directed the class plays for four years. She was born in Chicago, Illinois, but has made Atwood her home. She attended the University of Texas and the University of Mexico, but received her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Illinois. Just before going down a very small flight of stairs, we see a room with long tables and chairs, so We go in to chat with the agriculture teacher, Mr. Oscar Brewer, Who has instructed the FFA boys for three years. He also teaches the veterans' training class. Atwood has been his home all his life. He graduated from A.T.H.S. and then attended the University of Illinois for his Bachelor of Science degree. While we are still chatting with Mr. Brewer, the sound of music comes drifting from the room at the foot of the stairs. We decide to go in and talk to Mr. E. E. Weller, the band director. He tells us that he has been teaching music here for nine years, excluding the four and one-half years spent in the armed service. We also learned that he had gone to the University of lllinois for his Bachelor of Science degree and Illinois Wesleyan for his Master's degree. His home town is Lawrenceville, Illinois. Everyone likes to make trips to the kitchen and loiter around, so While we are there, let's interview the teacher, Miss Eloise Boyd. Besides home economics she teaches girls' physical education. She comes from Sullivan, Illinois, and attended Eastern Illinois State Teachers College at Charleston, Illinois, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree. Miss Boyd has taught here for two years. We are now on the bottom floor of the building and will visit Mr. Clarence Rogers and his manual training class. He also teaches the boys their physical education. No one would believe, to look at Mr. Rogers, that he has been here for twenty-one years. He is basketball, football, and baseball coach. We think he really knows his sports. We finally got around to asking him where he attended college and where his home town was. We were surprised to hear that his home town is Browns-
