SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS
Responsibility rests in the hands of our Super-
intendent of Schools, Mr. William R. Booker. Mr.
Booker was born in Sullivan, Indiana. He attended
school in another city and upon graduating from
high school, attended the University of Indiana.
While attending the University, he taught school
and received his A.B. degree in 1916. Later, in
the year 1926, he received his master's degree.
Mr. Booker has been a teacher in Michigan
schools for 18 years. He was also a member
of the faculty at Kalamazoo College. Before his
present position, he was Superintendent of
Schools at Greenville, Michigan.
Mr. Booker's ideas and ideals on education
are all summed up in his statement, "The edu-
cation ol our boys and girls is a function of the
State and the Nation. Every child is entitled to
an education. 'Education is the eternal debt of
adults to youth.' "
Under Mr. Booker's supervision much work is
achieved, all ior one purpose: to educate. It is
Mr. Booker who is called upon when there are
knotty problems to solve, and he is very adept
at solving them.
The beneficial work this man has accomplished
is greatly appreciated by all who have ever
come in contact with him.

BOARD OF EDUCATION
As another year, and the "zero hour" ap-
proaches, the Seniors are thrilled with happiness
as they cross the threshold to receive their
diplomas from the hand of Dr. C. A. Lund, Presi-
dent of the Board of Education. Few ot them
are ready to admit truthfully that the glory ot
this hour is greatly due to this very Board oi
Education from whom they receive their reward.
Board oi Education? Very few of our students
even know there is such an organization. Why?
Because it is not talked about in the school
every day. Yet the Board is really at work
planning to overcome the problems of our school
so that we might have a school of and for our
It is this Board of Education that is studying,
just as we are, for the interest of all the students.
They are the men behind the scenes. As the
people prepare the stage for the actors, so does
the Board of Education set up the stage tor our
education. It is with their final touch that every-
thing is completed in due time for this ever
important purpose. And they even tell us when
we can have a vacation! tIsn't that just too sweet
of them?l They hire the Superintendent: they
give out various instructions which are to be
carried out. They are the final authority for all
activities ot the schools.
We, the Senior Class of 1938, wish to thank
the faculty and the Board of Education for every-
thing they have made possible for us and bid
goodby with the deepest sincerity.
"The Senior Class of l938."
