Dean Hannelly Sees Prosperity Ahead for College, Community A student body of 20, attending classes in two small cottages at Phoenix Union High School, was present at the birth of Phoenix College and the beginning of higher education in the city. Now, the college, situated on a congested 50-acre campus, has an enrollment of 2,000 day students and 3,000 evening students. Linked synonymously with the scl1ool's history and ex- pansion is Robert J. Hannelly, Dean of the College. The silvery-haired Hannelly, who joined the teaching staff 32 years ago, was promoted to his present position in 1947. P.C. was preceded by only the University of Arizona in being recognized tl928J by the North Central Association of Schools and Colleges, regional accrediting group. After it attained a peak student capacity of 422 in 1928, pessimists gloomily predicted that the school would be affected economic- ally by the depression, however, Phoenix College remained open and enrollment maintained a steady pace during the depression years. West Thomas Road became the permanent home of the college in 1939, at nearly the same time World War II broke out in Europe. Although 821 registered in 1940, that figure dropped considerably in the next five years as the majority of men went from the classrooms to the battlefield. Following the war, more than 1,000 veterans took ad- vantage of the G.1. Educational Bill and returned here to resume their studies. When the veterans were graduated, enrollment figures dropped, but they rose sharply after the Korean War armistice had been signed. The baby crop of World War II and a rising population in the nation's fastest growing community sent registered-student figures soaring to Emotions mix as we bid graduates farewell. Only in the 5 last months of their biennial sojourn at Phoenix College are they mature, able, disci lined, and pleasant. On one hand, affection for them malges us wish to keep them. On the other, our concern for their success impels us to wish them bon voyage. Perhaps only our chronology, not our Q emotions, is scrambled because fulfillment of aims is in the Q future. There is consolation in the thought that the freshmen 5 will return as sophomores next year. They are at least half- way through the biennium. Furthermore, they have im- proved much since last fall. We shall welcome their familiar faces and semi-maturity come September. Yes, and though we know they have a long row to hoe, 5 we are curious, expectant, and glad when we think of the neophytes who will cast their lot with us next year. No two students, no two classes are alike, thank goodness. The challenge and the variety keep us young - at heart, anyway. Q fain, 4 541.., .

Latest material addition to the campus is the Fine Arts Center, which was built in 1955, and now accommodates the drama, music, art, photography, and journalism departments. School officials hope that the Board of Education will recog- nize the need for more buildings as the student population continues to increase. Dean Hannelly believes attendance will be doubled, and may be tripled, by 1970. As to the local howl against higher taxes, the Dean suggests that sales and excise taxes or other revenues be raised in order to alleviate the present property tax burden. Robert J. Hannelly Dean of Phoenix College since 1947 ! 5
