Leadership in triplicate
Valley College's leadership has changed hands more
often in the past two semesters than the government
William J. lVIcNelis, Valleyls president, left the
school on a sabbatical leave. Dr. Marie Martin took
over the leadership in September. She was offered a
permanent position at Metropolitan College of Business.
Again Valley searched for a new leader. This time

in three pairs of strong hands.

From one position to another
Moves within Valley's administration re-
semble a life-size chess game. In chess, when
an important player is lost, he is replaced by
another piece, who serves in an exact or similar
capacity. So it is at Valley where the adminis-
tration moves may have a far reaching effect.
Because any move affects the lives of literally
thousands, each is carefully planned. To insure
the move is correct, a test is given to select the
most valuable player.
Last summer many of Valley's administra-
tors were wanted to serve in their present
positions. Some of the moves were planned as
replacements for instructors or administrators
on sabbaticals, or other leaves.
The biggest change came when Valley Col-
lege president, William J. McNelis, left Valley
for a year's sabbatical in Europe. This move
was covered by Dr. Marie Y. Martin of Los
Angeles City College. Dr. Martin from the
very start won the hearts of the students with
her warm smile and sincere personal interest
in the school's students and activities.
When Dr. Martin left Valley to assume the
presidency of Los Angeles Metropolitan College
of Business in November, William N. Kepley
Jr. moved into position as Valley's president.
William E. Lewis was moved in on the
administrative chessboard as dean of student
activities after Mrs. Nena Boyer retired in
.Tune of '62
Dr. Helena Hilleary moved into the position
of assistant dean of student activities, a place
formerly occupied by James N. Cox. Dr. Hil-
leary's duties are to assist Dean Lewis in student
As dean and assistant dean of student activi-
ties, Lewis and Dr. Hilleary hold jobs that are
directly tied to the running of student govern-
ment and are charged with bettering the collec-
tive student body socially and scholastically.
Returning from a year's sabbatical, Robert
N. Cole was moved into place to resume his
duties as dean of special services.
Kermit Dale, who held Dean Cole's position
while Cole was on sabbatical, moved to the
position of assistant dean of instruction.
Valleyls chess game assures the students
that when an administration opening occurs,
the best qualified person can be assigned to
the position and that Valley will never face a
stalemate in the movement of top talent, edu-
cational and administrative ability.

Although this is the first family trip abroad, it is
not lVIcNelis' first tour of Europe. He was there in 1937
tenant during World War Il.
lVIcNelis' replacement during his leave, Dr. Marie

woman president. As the year progressed, the presi-
dent's chair at Valley was again to change passengers
awaiting the return of lVlcNelis.
