Transcript THE HOUSTONIAN- 1940 DAVID McGRATH Culmination of a full years work, this vol time had its origin in a torrid two weeks last July when the editor and business manager got together with a very lew ideas and lots ol pencils and blank paper. By the time preliminary layouts were made and the necessary printing and engraving contracts signed, registration was at hand — and then the work really began. By flint ol a little lugli pressure salesmanship some 850 books were sold, and the sales were closed. That brought .1 lew muttered oaths that grew to screams before the year was over, but next year we hope you will have learned your lesson. Came December and the announcement of the Vanity Fair selections, and the yearly row about the method of their selection. Then with the January blizzard came the presentation of the beauties at the Houston Club, with the Cougar still griping about our autocracy.' The March winds blew the first pages onto the presses, and the whole stall laid to with a will in order to wind up the remaining bits of this and that necessary to bring you this pictorial memento of 39 and 40. That laying to continued right on through March and well into April. And now tis May — the year will be over in two short weeks, and here is your Houstonian — 1940. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we have derived pleasure from the production of it for you. PETERSON WILLIAMS BALDRIDGE ISL'SCHARDT
