MR. HUGH V. WALLACE, Principal of the Rolla Public School, was graduated from Lincoln Institute in 1903. 

While a student his work and inclination to usefulness indicated that he would early take his place among the workers of Lincoln Institute. He was the leader in athletics, being successively elected manager of the Athletic Association year after year. Under his management the Lincoln Tigers won several hard-fought battles over some of the best teams in the West. He was president of the Y.M.C.A. two years, and met the college Y.M.C.A. convention of the State and made nice impressions for the colored boys who were engaged in the same kind of work.
Upon graduation Mr. Wallace was elected principal of one of the schools in Springfield, Mo., his home. During the summer he conducted an institute with much credit and entire satisfaction at Joplin, Mo. He was appointed to this place by the State Superintendent W. T. Carrington, who has been specially interested in Mr. Wallace for some time.
Mr. Wallace is giving satisfaction at Rolla, and is very popular with both races.
