MR. ROBERT A. THOMPSON PRINCIPAL By ANNE JOSEPHSON and BOB OTTO " Principal and pal to all, " that ' s quite a title and it adequately expresses the senti- ments of sixteen hundred students toward their principal and pal, Robert A. Thomp- son. John Burroughs has had the good for- tune of his supervision since it first opened its portals in 1924. Mr. Thompson, after graduating from Stanford University, began his career as a teacher at POLYTECHNIC H. S., where he taught many of the Burroughsonians ' par- ents and relatives. He then went to Sen- tous Junior High where he became prin- cipal. You won ' t find many principals who have coached football at Stanford, taken three-hundred-mile hikes, or gained the confidence of all he has met. Well, Mr. Thompson has. Besides his athletic ability Mr. Thomp- son has proved time and time again that he is bestowed with a keen sense of humor. The quality of fair play is one of his outstanding characteristics with a heap- ing teaspoon of brilliance tossed in, just for good measure. Put all this together and what do you have? Not only the principal but the human being, Robert A. Thompson. MISS THERESA BALLER Girls ' Vice-Principal By lANE KNOX With a sweet and gentle air that enables her to meet any situation, no other person is as well equipped for the position of Girls ' Vice-Principal at John Burroughs as Theresa E. Bailer. Miss Bailer is here to be a friend to all girls, ready at all times to enjoy their pleasures as well as to help them out with their difficulties. A fine education has fitted Miss Bailer for her wo rk. She is a graduate of the Uni- versity of Chicago and U.S.C. and also a member of the Alpha Kappa Delta, and honorary sociology fraternity. In 1928 Miss Bailer was a journalism teacher here at Burroughs and later be- came our counselor. She left here and went to another school where she had her first administrative experiences. But luck was with us and in September, 1939, she returned to be Girls ' Vice-Principal at Bur- roughs — her favorite school. MR. C. EVAN ENGBERG Boys ' Vice-Principal By BOB OTTO Now ending his first year at John Bur- roughs, Mr. Engberg has done many things, and helped many of the boys through the Boys ' Council which he and Mr. Wilding sponsor, and has advised the officers of all the school organizations. Last September Mr. Engberg came to John Burroughs from Dorsey High where he was teacher of science and language for four years. Our vice-principal attended Morningside College in Iowa where he received a B.B. degree. Then he came to the University of Southern California and received a Mas- ter of Science degree. He has completed most of the work necessary for a Ph.D. degree. Mr. Engberg sings at the Hollywood Presbyterian Church as a bass soloist. Most of the J.B. students have heard him sing and think he has a fine voice. As well as the duties of Boys ' Vice Prin- cipal, he also supervises the languages, the Boys ' Physical Education, and the Boys ' Activities. He also is sponsoring the A9 class this year. During the past year he has had much success and done much to help our school in many ways, and we hope he will have as much success in the future. PAGE nVE
