The students above were members of the various 1932 classes of McDonogh#35 who were chosen to assist the principal and office staff with many of the numerous tasks they had to perform on a daily basis. Two or more students were selected from each class. They were selected because of their courteous behavior, efficiency, and tact.

Every semester a new group was chosen and sometimes some of the students who had served before were selected again because of some special aptitude they had shown for office work.  Two from this group were selected as their leaders. They were Ethel V. Lyons, head office girl, and Thelma Rose Johnson, her assistant.
