8 -57" 'ii . 'F -- ' fs ' ,NS Q... Q . 14 mini tr fi n ln 1937 the halls of Lamar were opened for the first time. That fall almost all of this year's seniors were just beginning their long climb toward graduation. Mr. William J. Moyes, the principal of the new school, was busy opening "the finest school building in Houston and the best equipped in the Southwest," as the Houston Chronicle had called it. Organizing the new school was no easy job, but Mr. Moyes had a record of service that readily qualified him for the position. He had taught at Allen Academy in Bryan for four years, and at Marshall Training School in San Antonio, where he had been co-principal for two years. From San Antonio Mr. Moyes came to South End High School in Houston where he taught English and Latin. From South End High School he was promoted to the principalship of Central High Cnow Sam Houstonl. There he served as principal until Lamar was opened. Mr. Moyes' sincere interest in the welfare of Lamar School and its students, his boundless enthusiasm for the success of his football teams, and his remarkable wisdom in guidance toward scholarship have made Lamar one of the outstanding schools of the Southwest. Mr. Jesse Madden, assistant principal, came to Lamar in the fall of l945. He brought with him a sense of humor, a keen interest in athletics, and a desire to help the students understand their problems and assume their responsibilities. He has aided Mr. Moyes in solving the problems of Lamar. l

Yime to Study This is the first of three divisions of the Orenda, in it are the sophomore, junior, senior, and faculty sections. We shall start with the sophomores since everyone has at one time or another gone through this grade. Every- one at Lamar will remember this first day, the odd and even room numbers, the time he got stuck with a partner at a Friday night dance, the time he had pressing and collecting wild flowers-all of these are primarily times of helplessness and frustration, and they typify the sophomore year. By the next year things become more settled, the worried look has now disappeared, as the junior will remember having memorized Mark Anthony's death oration, figured his grade averages and honor- point totals, and recited geometry theorems. But most important he can now give advice to eager-faced sopho- mores. At the end of the junior year are the many elections which serve to spotlight the senior leaders. This last year is one of logs, cosines, May fete predic- tions, Macbeth, and club formals. lt is a year of play and acceptance of responsibilities. The continual progression through Lamar changes very little from year to year. This first section Qicerns the individuals that make up the school. The following two show how these students first organize their abilities and then enter into various competitions. FACULTY SENIORS CLASSES

9 Mr. W. E. Moreland Cseated at leftl, Superin- tendent of the Houston Public Schools, is elected by the School Board of which Mr. Ewing Werlein is president. Mr. Moreland's duties are many and va- ried. Under his leadership and farseeing vision the Houston School System has expanded rapidly and has attained an excellence in all fields of secondary education. Mr. .l. H. Wright Cstanding at leftl is Director of Personnel for the Houston Independent School Dis- trict. He is an active participant in all civic projects. He was for several years, assistant principal of La- mar High School and still has a deep interest in the welfare of the pupils themselves. Mr. J. O. Webb is the Assistant Superintendent of the Houston Schools in charge of the Senior High Schools. Mr. Webb is pictured at the left in his spaci- ous office on the first floor of the Administrative Building. Mr. W. J. Moyes Cat leftl has just placed two new football trophies on exhibit in the library. Football boys Dick Bintliff and Jack Carson ad- mire the Raymond Pearson Award which Lamar has received four times for winning the City Cham- pionship. The other trophy is the one awarded to Lamar by the lnterscholastic League, for winning second place in the State Big City Play-off. In an impressive assembly program Bill Chanslor ac- cepted these trophies on behalf of the team. Mr. Madden stands in front of sixteen hundred football fans at a "pep" rally and urges them to continue to support their team. Once a football coach himself, he gets great pleasure out of spon- soring the victorious Indians. Two of the yell leaders stand by waiting to say a word about the coveted Sportsmanship Cup which Lamar has won twice in the last four years.
