IhiI aller it is lost and gone heyond reeall. we never fail to rememher what a preeious thing has slipped tliroLigh our fingers. These years in college, once gone, can never be recovered, so it behooves us to live lliern. losing, laughing, and laboring to the utmost, so that when tlie ' arc in the past, there II be no regrets. If. in future years, this book helps to relresh and enhance your most pleasant memories of the year just past, our efforts will have been more than justk rewarded. The Editor ami the St,m-f o THE 1939 HOUSTON! AN ADMINISTRATION CLASSES VANITY FAIR ORGANIZATIONS ACTIVITIES In the mind of this man, for ears the University of Houston has held hrst place ... his dreams were, in no small measure, the beginning from which our Alma Mater has grown . . . his sincere friendliness and hclphil counsel have lighted the path many a time when the way has been dark . . . his incessant eflorts have enabled the school to attain its present heights, and his heartlcit zeal will long serve as a driving lorce in the con- tinued rise of this university. To Dr. y. V. Kkmmhrer. with everlasting devotion and a deep sense of gratitude for all his labors in our behalf, we dedicate this 1939 Houstonian. V 1 1 ' t f ' ll BOARD OF TRUSTEES Standing: E. D.
