Transcript Copy Editor Karen Lumpkin is alone and crowded; the staff is gone for the night and the remaining work covers her desk, right. Left, Susan McKenzie, executive assistant cleans up after unhappy Vanity Fair-Miss Houstonian contestants leave. Houstonian Editor Linda Callaway and Color Beauty Photographer King Wong select transparencies for use in the book, far right. Right, Thorn Cammack, photo editor, shoots a self portrait. Layout Editor Beverly Dee inherits the burden of the Houstonian editorship for 1969, bottom right. 438 Houstonian Forms Editorial Board; Changes Unify Design and Theme Innovation and change served as bywords for the 1968 Houstonian staff. It was the first year of existence for an editorial board consisting of the editor, executive assistant, copy editor, layout editor and photo editor. All editorial and technical policies were made by this board. The editor's theme emphasized people in all photographs. This led to the demand for quality action shots under Greek Life, Campus Life, Organizations and other sections. The Administration Section was reorganized to include pictures that corresponded to the five facets of the university set up by the State Legislature—Finance, Academics, Development, Student Life and Staff Services. A large area of change was in the appearance of the yearbook. Alterations in the cover, paper and typography aimed at unifying the design and theme. With five experienced staff members returning, the Houstonian again survived the trauma of new workers. Together the staff combined colorful ideas to produce the 1968 yearbook. 439
