Transcript The Editor's Page As I sit alone in the office, content with the knowledge that the 1959 HOUSTONIAN is complete—the last page laid out, the last picture cropped, and the final line of copy written, the time seems right to evaluate the past year in terms of the yearbook and its editor. Yearbook-wise, the year 1958-59, the University's Silver Anniversary year, turned out quite well. For the first time, double spreads of color were used in the HOUSTONIAN, Miss Houstonian was announced over regional television, and an extensive history of the school was given along with the meaning of the U. of H. seal. For the editor, the year has been one of many rewards: lite feeling of good will that comes from working with wonderful persons such as organizations leaders Janet Isbell, Charlie Pieper, Bob Dunson, Sarah Wyatt, and Herb Hickman who were as anxious as I to see everything done exactly right; the feeling of self-confidence that comes from being entrusted by such capable advisors as Mr. Ross Strader and Mr. Hill Ross to do a good job; the feeling of appreciation of understanding parents who sometimes thought they were losing a daughter and gaining a yearbook; the feeling of loyalty inspired by friends like Ann and Faye who were always ready to help when called on; the feeling of true sisterhood to sorority sisters for their cheerful shouldering of extra responsibilities; the feeling of confidence in members of the faculty and administration, especially Mr. Farris Block and Dr. Pat Nicholson who gave generously of their time and experience; the feeling of gratitude to the yearbook staff, particularly to Millie and Don, the semper fidelis two; the feeling of thankfulness for Mrs. Vestal whose functions as chief aid, official greeter and wise advisor were illimitable; the feeling of appreciation of Mr. Tom Murray of Taylor Publishing Company who was patient with my many questions; and lastly, a feeling of deep indebtedness to Mr. Guy Roxburgh and Mr. Fred Seale, my summertime bosses, for making this whole college venture possible. For the student body, I hope the year has been fruitful in that it has provided experience that you will enjoy reliving by reminiscing through the pages of this 1959 HOUSTONIAN. Nancy West 415
