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.
