Transcript Dedication And the night shall be filled with music, and the cares that infest the day, Shall fold their tents, like the Arabs, and as silently steal away. -HENRY W. LONGFELLOW And who shall fill the night with music more graciously, more beautifully, more willingly than our own Ed Gerlach? With much planning and thought we dedicate this, The 1955 HOUSTONIAN, to the man who has dedicated himself to the University of Houston . . . There are many great men with talent. Some have many talents, but few share them with as many people in personal contact as does Ed Gerlach with the students on this campus. We have called on him for pep rallies, dances, shows ... He is always there, sometimes on an hour's notice. He is responsible for our school having one of the very top college bands in the nation. Before coming to the University he arranged many hit recordings for top name bands. Numerous top entertainers have studied under Ed. When the words "Ed Gerlach and His Orchestra" appear on a poster advertising a dance you can be sure it will be a success. There is one trait about this man that stands out above all others, the personal friendship he extends to every student on campus! Thank you, ED GERLACH-Thank you! The 1955 Houstonian Staff EDITOR'S PAGE What is an Editor's job? ... To produce a fine yearbook . . . But it can never be done alone . . . without the help and cooperation of the student body, the faculty, and a very wonderful staff . . . My heartfelt thanks go to all these people ... I give my special thanks to: Barbara Smith, Layout Editor, for producing the plan for every page in this book; to John Koster, Photo Editor, the answer to an Editor's prayer when deadlines and quality count; to Barbara Hinson and Bob Hecht for doing an unbelievable job in handling the Organizations Section . . . Jerry O'Brien deserves many thanks for the fine job he did on the Sports Section; Chepin Stebbins and Percy March- banks took over the advertising problem in time of need; the staff could never have done without Janet Hickman, Carol Bertram, and Joyce Weinberg, our Girls Friday . . . The entire staff was tops . . . We all thank Jim Palmer, our wonderful sponsor; all the people at Taylor Publishing Company; Wheat Studio for taking special care to please us; Harris Johnston for beautiful portrait work . . . Our aims have been to produce a book worthy of the University of Houston . . . And now the dummy is closed, the files locked and the staff gone. We sincerely hope YOU enjoy this book ... The 1955 HOUSTONIAN WAS PRODUCED FOR YOU . . .
