TYME A Letter From the Publisher Iff Lit TECH ' S NEWS MAGAZINE Tyme Editor Donna Joh nstone Stall Carol Cloyd, Beth George, Shirley Hill, Llewllyn Little LA VENTANA STAFF CO-EDITORS Beverly Hunt and Ronnie Lett ART EDITOR Pete McKay from graii- pM lepo- ileyaii m it ;, liis enice k ndiiii SECTION EDITORS Donna Johnstone, Tyme and Sophomore View; Jimmy Snowden, Sports Illustrated; Sheila Looney, Mademoiselle; Barbara Reed Hill, Playboy; Carla Dunn, Life; Brenda Oliver, Town and Country and Junior View; Elaine Saul, Future; Mary Margaret Mon- arch, Post; Betty Anglim, Freshman View and Index; Patsy Lokey, Senior View. PHOTOGRAPHY Johnny Shipman, head; Darrel Thomas, Mi ton Adams, Bruce Ott, Koen ' s Studio Studio i rUii DIRECTOR OF STUDENT PUBLICATIONS Bill Dean SECRETARY Jean Finley i This year ' s edition of La Ventana is the largest in the history of the book. It is larger because of you — our read- ers and subscribers. More of you are in this book than ever before and more of your organizations are in evidence; therefore, there are more pages. We also feel as though this will be one of the best La Ventanas in recent years and for this I want to thank a hard-working and creative staff. For their leadership I would like to thank Beverly Hunt and Ronnie Lott, our co-editors. Pats on the back should also go to ... Pete McKay, for some truly distinctive and striking art work . . . Jimmy Snowden, for the quiet and efficient way he went about making Sports Illustrated what it should be, . . . Carla Dunn, for meet- ing deadlines with quality in Life . . . Sheila Looney, for making the Tech co-ed more attractive than usual in Mademoiselle . . . Mary Monarch, for her fresh approach to problems and to Post, . . . Elaine Saul, for those clean and sharp layouts in Fu- ture, . . . Barbara Reed Hill, for new ideas in Playboy both before and after she got married, . . . Donna Johnstone, for a critical eye that kept us moving as she produced Tyme and Sophomore View, . . . Betty Anglim, for the Index and for turning in Freshman View on time, . . . Brenda Oliver, for just finishing Junior View and Town and Country, . . . and Patsy Lokey, for thoroughness in Senior View. There are others I want to single out. Johnny Shipman, who is leaving, has been our chief photographer the past two years and is responsible for much of color on the pages to fol- low. His staff consisted of Darrel Thomas, Milton Adams, Richard Mays, and Bruce Ott. The advertising was sold by Al- pha Delta Sigma under the able lead- ership of Kirk Carr. Individual shots for the class sections and organiza- tions were taken by Koen ' s Studio, directed by Don Burnett. The cover was done by Durand Manufacturing Company and special gratitude goes to Hal Payne of Du- rand for his cooperation. The book was published by Taylor Publishing Company in Dallas under the super- vision of Mac Upshaw. Assistance was also rendered at the plant by Fred Koeger and Phil Orman, ex-student publications director, and Floyd Hob- son, local representative. Complete appreciation can never be fully expressed to Jean Finley, pub- lications business manager, who looks upon her work as more than just a job and takes personal interest in our students and our problems. Without her participation, the spirit and fun of La Ventana would be gone. Janice Aldridge has served ably as our office secretary since replacing Mrs. Carol Dooley in January. In 1959 the magazine format idea was the creation of W. E. Carets, chairman of the journalism depart- ment. He has never let this book escape his attention and devotion and for this all of us in La Ventana are grateful. Let me also thank the Student Publications Committee composed of Dr. E. A. Gillis, Chairman, Dr. Regi- nald Rushing, Dr. Rae Harris, Dr. Katherine Evans, Dr. Bill Lockhart, Ralph Sellmeyer, David Hancock, Lor- rie Woods, John Hutt, and Brian Lemons. Their understanding and co- operation has made the job much easier. Finally, thanks to you. Thanks for putting up with our errors and thanks for buying the book. I hope you enjoy it.

i A surprised man holds his picture for all to see. Left to right are: Mrs. Pearce, Dr. William M. Pearce, Beverly Hunt, editor, Bill Dean, director of student publications, and Pete McKay, artist. LA VENTANA DEDICATION Man of the Year Historian, teacher, administrator, and " quite a guy " describe Dr. Wil- liam M. Pearce, former executive vice president of Tech and 1967-68 Man of the Year. A Sunday morning breakfast at the home of John E. Harding, as- sociate professor of management and economics, turned out to be a surprise dedication for unsuspecting Dr. Pearce. Presiding at the ceremony were Beverly Hunt, La Ventana edi- tor, and Bill Dean, director of stu- dent publications. Dr. Pearce, vice president of academic affairs at Tech since Sept. of 1960, was appointed to the newly created post of Executive Vice Pres- ident on Dec. 5, 1966. A " true " Texan, Dr. Pearce at- tended public school in Abilene and Amarillo, and began his college ca- reer at Kemper Military School at Boonville, Mo. He received his bache- lor of arts degree from SMU and a masters degree at Tech. Upon gradua- tion, he taught at public schools in Dalhart and Odessa, and joined the faculty at Texas Tech in 1938 as history professor. During World War H, Dr. Pearce served in the Army in the post of tank unit commander in four cam- paigns in Europe. Dr. Pearce received his doctoral degree from the University of Texas while he also instructed classes. Hav- ing received his PhD in 1952, he was named head of Tech ' s Department of History in 1953. On this appointment, one of his students commented, " It seems a shame to waste such a good teacher in an office. " He was not " wasted " in academic affairs or in serving West Texas and Tech. In the area of historical re- search, his publications include a book on the famous Matador Ranch. Cur- rently he is compiling a history of the first 50 years in the life of Texas Tech, to be published in its 50th anniversary in 1975. Having recently returned from a world tour with his wife, Tech grad- uate the former Frances Campbell, Dr. Pearce is ready to assume the po- sition of President of Texas Wesleyan College, a Methodist institution in Ft. Worth. His love for young people, his accuracy in research, and his service to Tech make Dr. Pearce well de- serving of the honor of Outstanding Man of the Year. « 1

LA VENTANA Tech ' s Picture Window As windows are portals that re- veal the world, the La Ventana is " The Window " of Texas Tech. Actually it is a complex of pic- ture windows reflecting a view of every aspect of campus life. Supervision of this window com- plex is the job of co-editors Ronnie Lott and Beverly Hunt. Lott, a junior from Roswell, New Mexico, served the 1966-67 La Ventana as editor of Tyme and Sports Illustrated. Miss Hunt, a senior from Odessa, was last year ' s picture editor. The La Ventana editors were called upon during the year to per- form several outside activities such as speaking to area high schools on the field of journalism and judging vari- ous campus and high school contests. The traditional magazine format of the La Ventana was first in- troduced in 1959 by W. E. Carets, head of the journalism department. Each section editor strived to achieve the look and style of their namesake publications. The first portal is Tyme which contains the dedication of the year- book. It also includes the activities of the religious organizations, music groups, journalism and the military. This window was viewed and com- piled by Donna Johnstone. Mademoiselle is the view devoted to the women ' s associations — social, honorary and departmental. Specially honored are Miss Mademoiselle, the Women of the Year and Tech ' s Best Dressed Woman. Editor of Mademoi- selle was Sheila Looney. A revealing window is Playboy, which has as its main feature a three page foldout of Tech ' s playmate elected annually. Playboys included are the members of the men ' s organi- zations. Barbara Reed was the editor. Sports Illustrated, edited this year by Jimmy Snowden, gives a comprehensive picture of the world of sports complete with action photos and statistics. Like its controversial namesake. Life presents candid scenes and arti- cles from various Tech " happenings. " This realistic section was supervised by Carla Dunn. Post tells Who ' s Who in Ameri- can Colleges and Universities as well as who ' s who in Tech student govern- ment. It was edited by Mary Mar- garet Monarch. Brenda Oliver was editor of Town and Country which surveys li i i 2 Tyme
