Transcript Roy Grant, staff photographer, didn't join the yearbook staff till around the middle of the year. But once a member, he became known as one of the book's hardest working lensmen. Don Uhrbrock, staff photographer, managed to crowd lots of yearbook picture taking into a schedule that also included photo work for the Cougar and for the U. of H. News Service. The "Harris touch" gets the once over as John Harris, staff photographer, gives one of his pictures a critical measuring. Zerlene Schriber took time off from working as a free-lance writer to help out as a staff writer for the Houstonian. Sara Weinberg served as editor of the Vanity Fair section, rounding up pictures of the judge's choices in the Houstonian's annual beauty contest. Marvin Brisco edited the Fiesta section, using the knowledge gained as one of the top men in the '54 Fiesta to good advantage. "My typewriter was getting hot anyway," John Pate, Copy editor and head copy writer, explains as he takes ten for a picture. Nobody had to tell Earl Carson, Exchange editor, to smile for the birdie. Besides handling mail between the Houstonian and other college yearbooks. Earl kept the staff members laughing with his uncorkable sense of humor. A vet of past Houstonian staffs, Gladys Smith continued her good work as a staff writer and layout helper on the '54 Houstonian. Mable was able. Mrs. Stewart wrote the Houstonian copy to accompany the European Study Center pictures. She also served as general staff writer, as well as with the book's layouts. Dorothy Newman, secretary, stole time off from her regular job as secretary in the Journalism School office. 352 Gene Rummage, another of the Journalism School's two-timers, served as Layout editor for the fraternity and sorority section as well as pounding a beat for the Cougar. Margie Neugebauer, special staff assistant and secretary, had a last name some yearbook workers found difficult to say, but everyone was quick to praise her efficient, cheerful way of getting things done. Nancie Sweeton, Art editor, had the ability artists are traditionally believed to have, but minus the temperament. Tucker Blaine headed Alpha Phi Omega's Student Directory staff until lack of manpower forced the APO's to suspend publication temporarily. "The Ancient Romans started it all," John Pate, editor of Acta Diurna, faculty newspaper explains. Pate answers frequent inquiries about the paper's ususual name by pointing back to Julius Caesar's day when an earlier Acta Diurna kept Romans informed of the "Acts of the Day."
