successful ad campaign Allene Aszmann and Mildred Smith became champion ad salesmen.
The staff has Worked hard all year but our social side has not been entirely omitted. At
Christmas time the annual-salesmen banquet Was held at the Original Mexican Restaurant at
which time we presented Eleanor Thoma and Martin Iones with silver trophies. When the copy
was sent to press We celebrated our relieved spirits with a picnic. In May the annual Was hostess
to the gala formal "All-Publications Banquet" Which is held each year by the Times, Hueben und
Drueben, and La Retama staffs for the purpose of announcing the staffs of the following year.
Our Working side by side and our recreation has created a stronger feeling of friendship
among the staff members. We are hoping our humble efforts will serve as a reminder that inter-
national friendship begins With each individual. -Imogene Tampke.

With the closing of another school year La Retama has passed another milestone. lt has been
no easy task to uphold the traditions of the past and attain the standards which in the last twelve
consecutive years have placed our annual in the All-American or Superior ranks by the rating
of the National Scholastic Press Association. ln spite of the fact that our faithful friend and ad--
visor, Miss Olga Scholz, could not help us with this tremendous undertaking, we met our tasks with
courage, knowing that our new advisor, Miss Betty leanne Dobbins, had had much experience.
The staff chose as its theme, "Friendship," which is so needed with the world in a turmoil as
it is at the present time. Having chosen our theme, we immediately began taking class pictures.
ln October, we began our successful sales campaign owing much of our success to Eleanor
Thoma, who sold l26 annuals, breaking all previous records, and to Martin Iones, who sold 83
annuals. The staff would like to express our appreciation to our many friends in the Student
Council and the Debate Class who aided in this campaign.
In March the annual began to take shape as we began mounting the proofs of the lay-outs
that Alice Neal, Bertha Grundrnann, Grace Ann McCreless and others had devoted hours to plan-
