Welcome to Teachers
We always reserve space in our column to honor
our dignitaries, and especially so, if these digni-
taries happen to be our teachers.

newest member of the Howard High family. Miss
Richardson graduated from Howard in '49, and
from A8zI State University in '-5-2.
We have another new addition to the faculty,
Mr. Garth, who is also in the English department.
Mr. Garth, too is a member of the great class of '49,
He graduated from Morehouse with top honors in
The Business Classes are happy to have Misses
Cora Butler and Lula Turner as practice teachers
for six weeks. The young ladies are Willing and
ready to serve. These young ladies are members
of the Business Education Department of A. and I.
University, Nashville, Tennessee.
Weextend to the-m our heartiest welcome, and
will give them our full cooperation. All are young,
attractive, friendly, and talented, and will prove
to be remarkably successful with students, and of
course with the teachers.

TRIBUTE TO MRS. MILLSAPS
The whole school is deeply grieved and shocked
over the passing of Mrs. Helen Millsaps, Howard
High School's late librarian. Both the faculty
and student body wish to express their profound
sympathy to Mrs. Millsaps' family in this period
of bereavement and share in their loss of a loved
one and a friend.
Mrs. Millsaps was born in Meridian, Mississippi.
She was educated at the Meridian Academy and
Atlanta University, where she majored in library
science. After teaching a few years in Butler,
Alabama, Mrs. Millsaps became librarian in Me'-
ridian. She came to Chattanooga in November,
1923 as the bride of Mr. John W. E. Millsaps andi
has resided here since. A short time after her
arrival in Chattanooga she was employed by the
city schoolsystem as librarian at Howard High.
For more than 25 years Mrs. Millsaps has faith-
fully supplied the literary needs of the Negro
people of this area. The work of Mrs. Millsaps
has been ceased only by her untimely death.

THE HOWARD HIGH BAND
By Delores Allen
Howard has a new Drum Major and five new
Majorettes: Doris Riggins, Ruby Davis, Rosemerri
Blake, Ehna Allen and Ernestine Graham.. All
are nice looking, but none can beat cute little
Miss Barbara Ware, our leader and a Senior. Of
course, our new Drum Major isn't as experienced
as Jasper Cameron, but he has to learn just as
Jasper did, but he has been doing well. Give him
a chance, will you?
We certainly miss the seniors we had last year,
but its okg we shall be just as good next year with
new ones that have taken their places, as John
Brown, Cecil Mitchell, George Keith and new cap-
tain of the drums, Joe Farrow.
What do you think of the half time show at
the game between Howard and Austin? Was it
three cheers for our Band Master?
