The Uffice Mr. Clay pulls the venetian blind cord and immediately the office is flooded with the sunlight of another day. Soon the voices of teachers are heard as they come down the hall toward the office. Thus at about eight o'clock each morning the activity begins slowly, and mounts steadily throughout the day to make the office always a place of accomplishment and confusion. A few minutes later the office will be filled with teachers who must "sign in" before beginning their day's labor, outside, the walk up to school is becoming more crowded, and soon the students will also be pouring into the office to add to the general confusion. The office staff and its assistants are constantly on the run looking for grade cards, blank admits, absentee slips, or selling football tickets, looking up where a student is that period, or carrying out any other whim a student might have. Executing their jobs with great proficiency and apparently no bothers at all, this staff is nevertheless glad to see three o'clock roll around. As the sound of the voices gets further away, the blinds again are closed, and another day in the office is complete. ans Betty Gray Sallie Smith Roaer Gilliam Pat Ev , , , . T

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.

ll Miss Ruth Taylor ln her sweet understanding woy Miss Taylor handles the job of being Mr. Moyes' secretary. Her patience in all matters has made her re- spected and loved by everyone. Besides her full-time job as secretary Miss Taylor is able to secure substitutes, supervise the cafeteria cashiers, and look after keys and supplies. Mrs. Edith Ferrell Being the school's registrar is no simple task, but with ease and a wonderful sense of humor Mrs. Ferrell handles her job with apparently no difficulties. No newcomer to Lamar's office staff, Mrs. Ferrell recalls the first day the doors of the school were opened. A list of her many duties would consist of interviewing parents and students about courses, mailing transcripts of records to colleges, and ranking the Senior class. Mrs. Alice Harrell This picture of Mrs. Harrell, Lamar's treas- urer and bookkeeper, shows her in one of her most arduous tasks, stacking, counting, and roll- ing the money from the lunch room. Mrs. Har- rell's books, in which she records the expendi- tures and all money transactions of the many school organizations, are neat, accurate, and very helpful aids to students who wish to refer to past years about financial difficulties. With her patience, willingness to help, and interest Mrs. Harrell has won the deepest ad- miration and respect of theientire student body. Mrs. Selden Leavell In the attendance office sits Mrs. Leavell, and around her continually busying themselves are her student office assistants. Because of her kindness and common sense the job of handling discipline problems has been added to the usual tasks of managing the book room, checking on absentees, taking phone calls, and delivering messages. In spite of her many duties Mrs. Leavell always has time to joke with the continual group of students that mill into her office for no reason except to have a good time.
