PRICE A youthful educator and administrator, who in a short period of time, has made an outstanding record as an administrator, civic worker, jour- nalist, and scholar. IN MEMORIAM JAMES THOMAS WALLACE James Thomas Wallace, a native of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, served faithfully and dutifully the Office of Cashier at Florida Normal and Industrial Memorial College for a period of five years, commencing in 1949 and ending with his untimely death August 25, 1954. He was a dear friend of the College, dedicated to the proposition that the success of anything depends upon each part functioning well. He was dependable, trustworthy, and likeable; he stood as a shining example of one of those who overcame handicaps and fought the good fight of service. James Thomas Wallace, because of his unselfish service, is given a per- manent place in the love and affection of our College.
