MRS. COLLINS-ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL
Mrs. Belle XV. Collins, known to every
student who has attended Bryan High
during' the last nine years, came to the
school in l9ll. as a member of the His-
tory Department of the lfaculty. She
taught this subject for four years, at the
end of which time, she was placed in
charge of the office, where she has
reigned without interruption up to the
present time. Mrs. Collins, according to
the conclusion reached by many students.
taught history so much and for such a
long period of time before taking charge
of the office, that she could not forget it!
for she reigns day after day on' her throne
in ll2, as did those kings and queens in
the history which she taught.
During the past sunnnerathat of 1919
-Mrs. Collins handed a surprise to the
student body, when she married Mr. Col-
lins, She had been Miss llelle XValne be-
fore that time, and the students are not
yet used to the "Mrs Collins." But, per-
haps by next year, all the students will ,
be used to calling her Mrs. Collins.
Mrs, Collins has proved herself to be one who conducts herself and her
actions along the principles of "XVhat is Right, and XYhat is XVron'g,,' and
she never permits anything or anybody to swerve her from those principles.
ln every case which comes before in her work in the office, she takes her
stand on the side which she believes to he right. lf a student is justified in
his action, she is quick to see it, and to dismiss him, but on the contrary, if a
student has done something which he was not justified in doing, she sees to
it that that student receives the punishment due him, which is in every sense
of the word-right.

BIOGRAPHY OF PRINCIPAL ALEXANDER
Together with the regret of seeing Mr. Gideon leave the school, came the
agreeable surprise that the man who had been chosen to succeed him as prin-
cipal was no other than Mr. Alexander. known to almost all of the students
as the former teacher of senior mathematics at Bryan and, also, as the former
keeper of that famous dwelling place called 109. It was with great pleasure
and enthusiasm that the students and the faculty welcomed INlr. Alexander
as the new principal. No other person in the world could possibly have been
chosen to succeed Mr. Gideon, who would have the support and the respect
of the school as Mr. Alexander.
Graduating from the University of Colorado after having taken two years
at Vanderbilt. Mr. Alexander began teaching. which occupation he has been
in since that time. He first came to the Bryan Street High School in the liall
of l9lO. He taught mathematics for two years here, and then' went to El Paso,
where he was principal of the El Paso High School for one year. He re-
signed this position with the intention of giving up teaching, and with that
thought and determination, he located on a fruit farm in' Southern Alabama,
where he remained for one year. At the end of that year, after an absence
of two years, Mr, Alexander returned to Dallas. where he again began teach-
ing in the Bryan Street High School. He retained his position as instructor
in higher mathematics at liryan until january l of this year, at which time,
he was made principal of the Reagan School of this city. Serving in this
capacity for about two months. he was appointed by the Board of Education
as the successor of Mr. Gideon as the principal of the Bryan Street High
School and assumed his duties March 22. Mr. Alexander has been teaching
for something like twenty-two years. and the position he now holds is suffi-
cient proof of his wonderful ability.
The school was indeed fortunate to have a man of the character and
ability of Mr. Alexander for its principal, and that it realized this fact is
readily shown in the reception which was given him upon his first appearance
as principal in the auditorium last March. He is a man who is honored and
respected by all those under him, both students and teachers.

LIFE OF OUR FORMER PRINCIPAL
After holding his position as principal of the Bryan Street High School
for one year almost to the day, Mr. S. E. Gideon, dear to the hearts of every
student and teacher under him and every one else who knew him, resigned
this position on March l9, to take up a position in Chicago.
Mr. Gideon has an extraordinary record behind him. He is a graduate
of Shurtleff College, and was a student of Law at XVashington University.
Later, he studied at the University of Chicago. He was admitted to the Bar
in Missouri after leaving the University of Chicago. Mr. Gideon did not
devote all of his time to the practice of law. but rather did he mix business
activities with it. He was on a farm for several years. and he says of him-
self, "I am by far, a better farmer than l am a school man." He was in the
canning business for four years, and then took charge of the shipping of
horses from Arizona into Texas. He was employed by the same company
for whom he now works, to value land in Kansas, Iowa and Missouri.
During the Great Xlar, Mr. Gideon proved himself to be both patriotic
and capable by helping the government as a member of the National Com-
mittee on lfducation and Special Training Xlvar Plans Division, General Staff.
He served on this board in l9l7 and l9l8, as Business Manager for the lOth
District, composed of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.
After this service, Mr. Gideon was appointed to succeed Mr. N. R.
Crozier as the Principal of Bryan High School. He came to assume his
duties in March of 1919, and remained until his resignation last March. Dur-
ing the time he was connected with the school, Mr. Gideon won the friendship
and respect of every person with whom he came in contact, or with whom
he had any dealings. In his work as principal, he showed an ability and a
squareness, that made every student and teacher his firm friend. He had the
co-operation of the student body and the faculty, for he proved himself to be
a man who deserved that co-operation in the fullest sense of the word. His
resignation from the position of head of the school came as an unexpected
surprise to the students, and, although they were glad to see his advance-
ment to a better position, they were sorry to lose him. He is, indeed, a Man's
