WILLIAM FLOYD This year as in former years we, the Class of ' 51, wish to thank Mr. William Floyd, superin¬ tendent of schools, for his ceaseless efforts in our behalf. Those of us who have had the opportunity of working with him will remember his quiet co¬ operation and helpful advice. We are all famil¬ iar with his friendly smile and greeting when we meet in the halls, and we must surely be aware of the vast amount of work which he does to make our school maintain its place as a modern, well-run institution. Through his effi- cent management and work with the School Board he has carried through many plans for improvements and additions for the three schools which he supervises. A great believer in listening to the other per¬ son ' s viewpoint, he is always willing to listen to suggestions from students about the school and lends a sympathetic ear to any problems we present to him. School Board Although they are not well known to most of the stu¬ dent body, the School Board plays an important part in the smoothly run management of our school. Meeting once a month with Mr. Floyd, the Board, consisting of J. Henry Law, K. H. Kettelhut, and Burr Prentice, decides what policies the school shall follow. These men direct the expenditures of the school city, hire all personnel for the West Lafayette schools, and formulate plans for additions and improvements for West Lafayette schools. A tribute to their foresight is the blue-print for the future gymnasium-auditorium. We appreciate the untiring efforts of the Board and Mr. Floyd in securing for us the best possible leader¬ ship, curriculum, and equipment for the boys and girls enrolled in our schools. MISS PEARL ADAMS Miss Adams, secretary to Mr. Floyd, can always answer a fre¬ quent question of club and class treasurers, " How much money do we have in our treasury, Miss Adams? ' ' Keeper of all activity funds, she pays our bills and helps us to be systematic in re¬ cording our funds and expendi¬ tures.

CARL HAMMER " These are the morning announcements, " is the greeting to the entire school each morn¬ ing from Mr. Carl Hammer, principal of West Lafayette Senior High School. Mr. Hammer is always very busy perform¬ ing his duties at the school which include computing our senior rankings, checking credits, interviewing students, and writing numerous letters, but he can usually find time for a little pleasant conversation with anyone who happens to drop in the office. Whatever the reason for visiting Mr. Ham¬ mer for any problems, whether they be sched¬ ule mixups, questions about college, personal problems, or what-have-you, you are certain to get a reasonable answer or good advice from our friendly chief executive. Our principal is keenly interested in all the various clubs and activities of the school and keeps up-to-date on the achievements of each one. Enjoying sports very much, he never misses a West Side game at home or away unless it is absolutely impossible to be there. He attends many of the mixers and often drops into the Den to watch the proceedings. He is always very much amused at the stu¬ dents ' reaction to the " Iron Claw. " Yes, all of the students and especially the seniors certainly appreciate this understand¬ ing friend who always works for our best interests. MRS. DOLMA PRESTON " The thing I enjoy most is ringing the fire- bell, " says Mrs. Preston, our efficient secre¬ tary. The obvious reason for this statement is that during a fire drill is the only time there isn ' t at least one student in the office asking questions, buying paper, or just waiting to see Mr. Hammer. She goes on to say that actually she enjoys her work immensely and doesn ' t mind the questions a bit. Mrs. Preston has worked in the high school office for two years now taking care of all correspondence, mimeographing, making out report cards, helping Mr. Hammer ar¬ range schedules, sorting mail, and working always to keep the business of the school running smoothly. The Class of ' 51 has appreciated her help¬ fulness very much during its junior and sen¬ ior years. ADMINISTRATION Page 15
