Transcript Something better for you—that was our idea when we began planning for the 1954 Houstonian. We planned a Houstonian that would more accurately record the day to day activities of the University student body. More complete coverage was one of our ideas for a book that would, we hoped, leave no one out. By checking through past books, we planned to avoid old omissions, to include past ideas that had lent merit. Dead spots, stiff pictures, too formal language in writing a college yearbook would have to go, we decided. Wyn Wardell, our photo editor, came through with a natural lighting photo process. The new picture taking method captures the scene as it was at the time it was snapped. The artifical flash light glare is gone. The natural look, a new look has taken its place. Of course, much of the 1954 Houstonian is old. And frankly, we think you'll be glad. Proven methods of standard layout, writing, and checking copy have been retained. Sometimes, somewhere in the book, we may have goofed. But we've done our best. We hope that this year's Houstonian will prove a true and pleasurable record of your activities last year. Mary Madison, Summer editor, completed her third year on the book, busy as usual, doing her job well, but never quite drawing the praise she deserved. Not pictured is Jim Mayor, Fall and Spring editor, who got the yearbook off to a good start with plenty of good ideas. John Vitello, Sports editor, got to know the "Inside" of the University's athletic setup, becoming a sort of "Twelfth Man" on the school's teams. Janice Lang, Class editor, had one of the toughest jobs a staff member can hold. But her section was one of the first to be completed and sent to the publisher. Wyn Wardell, the Houstonian's chief Photography editor, used natural lighting for his pictures, giving yearbook shots of campus life a "New Look." On the seventh day he rested. Jim Palmer, faculty sponsor for the Houstonian, did more than his share of worrying and always had the right answer when a difficult layout problem or an elusive word threw a staff member for a loss. Even though Bruce Underwood is sitting down in this picture, Houstonian staffers can't be fooled. The Journalism School's genial chairman was always on the spot when someone needed any help. 351
