UR SUPREME desire will
be fulfilled if this edition
of the Orange and Brown conveys
to you the thought that the Abi-
lene High School is a treasure
chest, overflowing with stones of
Youths come seeking in the
halls of A. H. S. rare treasures
which have been buried by sue-
cessful adventures of the past.
They bring to light treasures
of science, music, art, and liter-
ature, and these jewels of knowl-
edge, others of power, and of
beauty, sterling character, and
golden friendships, are linked to-
gether by golden chains, with
each link so fine and strong that
the whole will endure forever.
Memories which will illumine
our lives are each day added to
our treasure store, and so, to
make this, the 1932 Orange and
Brown, an invaluable gem is

The social gatherings of the club included

Senior Class History
l-IRE I A DARK-HAIRICIJ Pirate queen
with haunting eyes and tea-rose com-
plexion, for a small piece of silver I would
gladly dis:-lose the future. Though I have not
the gift of prophecy. I ani inclined to reverie.
For just a few moments of your time I shall
trace for you the path of the largest band of
pirate youths who have traversed the halls of
A. H. S.
The events of their first year 011 the high
seas were a get-acquainted hike at Morton's
grove and a chapel program on Kansas Day.
They began anew their journey as Sopho-
mores with a hike at Murphys grove. An
appropriate Thanksgiving program was given
in November. A deviation from the serious
was a ring toss at the annual carnival, where-
by the skillful found their fortunes.
The next year they changed the style of the
class rings and chose the Cowboys head as
their insignia. 1,11 November 20, 1930, the
annual Junior play, "The Arrival of Kitty."
was given. They bade farewell to the Sen-
iors, whose Caravan had guided them ill their
journey, with a banquet in an Egyptian tem-
At last, they neared the climax of the jour-
ney with glad hearts. They conducted the
Christmas chapel. as has been the usual cus-
tom. In March. fifteen of the band were chos-
en as members of the Abilene Chapter of the
National Honor Society. and twelve members
were elected to the National Quill and Scroll
Society. The Senior play, "Smilin' Through,"
was presented April 22.
But when they reached the last semester
and were guests of the Junior class at a ban-
quet prepared for them as a farewell, there
was a hint of sadness. The all-day picnic,
and the Alumni banquet. were final climaxes
The leaders of this last year were: Deloss
Iiomine. president, Claude Coleman, vice-pres-
identg Clyde Harris, seeretaryg Vernon Stev-
ens. l1'BilSlll'6l'Q Melvin Martin and Alma
Chase. Student Council representatives. Misses
Marjorie Taylor, Esther Turvey, WVinnie Scott,
Esther Cliristmore, and Mr. J. Earl Endacott
were sponsors of the class.
And the caravan of pirates still goes on in
quest of varied treasurers. But the vagrant
thought of the band shall return as haunting
memories and in firelight glow each will often
rebuild the scenes of High School days.

bit toward storing np treasures in the A. H.
S. Treasure Chest.
Our officers for this year are: President.
Alden Carney: vieerpresidelit. Max Beamer:

Besides the class officers which we elected

the Student Council by William Gragg and
Ruth Fengel. Our able sponsors were Miss
Thelma Nelson. Mrs. Genevieve Andrews, Miss
Ethel Giles. Mr. Fred Allison. and Mrs. A. E.
Our first social event of the year was a very

XVe again changed the pattern of the class
rings. the form now being a handsome ring
bearing the new seal of the school and having
an green and black enamel background.
XVe presented as our Junior play this year.
"The Importance of Being Ernest." a very
entertaining and amusing play with princi-
pal parts portrayed by Mickle Menzie. Jane
Vase. Thalne Engle. and XVilliam Gragg.
This year we were also permitted to be the
first class to hold our most' important social
event of the year at the new Sunflower Hotel.
This. our Junior-Senior Reception, was held
on April 8.
Tlirougliout the entire year members of our
4-lass represented the school in various im-
portant activities. Several of our classmen
were active in the Operetta a11d Senior play
interludes. Adah Carol Stocking placed first
in the poetry division of a contest sponsored
by the Journalism department. William Gragg
represented the school in oratory. Besides
these activities, several members of our class
represented our school in the C. K. L. music
contest, and last, but not least. we were well
represented in football, basketball, and track.
Our final activity of the year was our usual

great responsibility, NVe must be the leaders
of this school for the following year. Thou

Sophomore Class History
By TABITHA DAVIDSON
FTICR THE launching of our good ship in
our Freshman year and starting our
search for the Treasure Chest of knowledge.
our second year saw us at far sea sailing at a
rapid speed. At times our speed was slackened
by great breakers, but we hope to be carried
on to a successful landing two years from
There were one hundred thirty-three in our
little crew this second year. Some were un-
able to continue the search. Occasionally
o11e or two were picked up from some ship-
wreck and added to our crew. For captain or
president of our crew we elected Dean Issitt:
first niate or vice-president. Gwendolyn Ro-
mine: log keeper or secretary, Margaret
VVhitehairg purser or treasurer, Herbert Meuli:
and for first and second lieutenants or student
council representatives, Jeanne Rogers and
The finding of precious jewels of English.
Latin, geometry, also sportsmanship and
companionship, was an incentive to us to con-
tinue our search. Other things that encouraged
us greatly were the recreations we had. First
we took a deck stroll to Baer's Grove. VVQ
played games and enjoyed ourselves immense-
ly. Our radio was a great pleasure to us. It
brought us many interesting reports. While
listening in we heard the report of the Abi-
lene-Ellsworth football game and the great
success our representatives had in selling hot
dogs, candy bars, and gum. WVe also heard
the Abilene-Herington basketball game and
that our representatives sold candy and Es-
kimo pics. Then in the spring We took anoth-
er stroll on deck. Perhaps the thing longest to
be remembered was the night we all gathered
in the lounge and saw the stunt that a few of
the crew patomimed for us. All of our little
gatherings served to break up the ordinary
routine of the search.
Perhaps the greatest stimulation we had
on our search was the encouragement of our
guardians of the deep, who at times gave us
much aid. Under their careful guidance we are
now ready to enter our Junior year. Our guar-
dians for this year were: Miss Lorene Rey-
nolds, Miss Mabel Pinson, Miss Leona Gris-
wold, and Mr. Paul Collins.

Freshman Class History
By MABIGL MIGLLOR
RITE EMERALDS, showing only their
green hues in the early autumn sunlight,
were the one hundred forty-six Freshmen to
arrive and begin their eager search for the
bigger and better treasures of A. H. S. As
the days grew shorter and then again longer.
the little jewels began to display iridescent
shades as was becoming to them. and also
fitting to show their readiness to be advanced.
Under the worthy sponsorship of Miss
Neva IVeisgerber, Miss Margaret Scott, Miss
Vera Stcininger and Mr. Roy Martin. we were
carried safely to the Sophomore shore losing:
o11ly a few of our members on the way. and
finding a few who had strayed to replace
them. At the first class meeting held early
in the fall, Vaughn Ayers was elected presi-
dent, Lucille Holmes, vice-president: Doro-
thy Buchanan, secretary: XVayne Zook. treas-
urer: and Peggy Morse and .lohn Gleissner,
Student Council representatives.
In brilliancy of minds, we tied first place
on the Ilonor Roll with the Sophomores as our
only competitors. Our brilliant hues were
prominent in both girls' and boys' athletics
and all other school activities. Our talented
troupe furnished much valuable material in
Debate. Oration, Declamation, Glee l'lub, girls'
basketball and hockey. football: boys' basket-
ball and track, showing that the future of the
school is in capable hands. XVe also have
participated in such clubs as are open to us.
Late in the fall, we held our Freshman hike
at Baer's Grove. Different means of trans-
portation were provided by the classmen.
Games were played and a car wreck was fea-
tured for additional excitement.

grow into this lively, ambitious, self-approv-

This golden casket at the present time con-
tains more than 500 gems, each one diligent-

brilliantly than the others.
Upon entering A. H. S. one has the oppor-

the subjects he is most particularly interested
As ever onward we seek through the golden
days of our high school life, we become more
familiar with the valuable departments in our
Our language department consists of three
years of Latin and two of German. The pur-
pose of this department is to give the students
a more thorough knowledge of the ancient civ-
ilization upon which his own is founded, and
to give a greater appreciation of one's own
language, which is derived from both Latin
The Physical Science department is a great
aid to all students, in that it gives them the
fundamental laws of nature, and aids the stu-
dents to do better things in life if they so
wish. This includes Chemistry, Physics,
Physical Geography, and General Science.
Our History department makes history ap-
pear as a silver chain, the links having been
forged one by one from the past of our na-
Many exceptional opportunities are given
to girls in the Home Economics department
which develops in the girls an understanding
of the principles of those things essential to
home life. Likewise the boys are given their
chance in the Manual Training department to
develop their skill in the use of tools that will
enable them to do ordinary repair work, read
blue prints, and estimate the value of Work
done by a worker of wood. Valuable formation
and actual experience in the everyday prob-
lems of farmers is given the boys of the Agri-

teresting projects are worked out during this
Perhaps of greatest importance is the Eng-
lish department which specializes in four dif-
ferent phases of English-English and Amer-
ican Literatureg oral and written composition:
drill on grammar fundamentals, creative work
expressed in Journalism, and development of
personalities in the public speaking course. A
new method was worked out in which every
student taking English would be required to
divide his year into four parts and take nine
weeks of each phase.
The Library in the Study Hall is extensive-
ly important in that it contributes to all
phases of school life and aids many in self-
The Commercial department is the most
popular. Through this department an inter-
esting business life is developed. The objec-
tive of the commercial course is to train and
qualify students for business or stenographic
Other important departments are the Art
department, which develops appreciation of
the beautiful, and creates artistic tastes: the
Instrumental and Vocal departments of mu-
sic which work together in order to aid the
talented student to further his musical abil-
ities, and to give all an appreciation of good
music. Then lastly, but not least, comes the
Physical Education department in which both
boys and girls are required to take a two
years' course in physical training. It is
through this training that better sportsman-

friendships are also formed by the outstand-
ing scholastic and social events in which we

We have pursued and discovered-and now
we can live happily over the past precious
memories which have inevitably accumulated.

tion. It was composed of approximately one
hundred seventy members and four sponsors.

Little Sister party. The club later co-operat-
ed with the Y. W. C. A. in giving a tea for the
mothers who were interested in their work.
At Christmas time the annual G. R.-Hi-Y
White Gift chapel was again presented. Carols
were sung to keep up with the spirit of the
season, and just before the holidays each
member was given a lolypop doll as a Christ-
mas present from the organization, to store
away with all other treasures acquired during
Community week was a new feature intro-
duced this year. During this week special
events were planned, including the Sunday
on which all members attended church in a

party in which the fiftieth anniversary of the
Girl Reserve movement was celebrated, the
Easter carols which were sung to the 'tShut-
ins" on Easter morning, the Shipmate and Dad

HE HIGH SCHOOL Operetta, "Valentien,"
a two-act musical review, was presented
December 4 at the City Auditorium at 8:15.
It was a presentation of the music depart-
ment under the direction of Miss Leona Gris-
Wold. The lnusic included some chorus and
solo numbers taken from the opera "Faust"
The first act took place in Germany in the
seventeenth century, just before a war. Val-
entien, portrayed by Loy Leffingwell, and
Rupert, Marvin Rasher, are two officers who
are leaving for the front.
Marguerite, Gladys Scott, a peasant girl,
and also Valentien's fiancee, does not regret
seeing Valentien leave, as her interests have
been elsewhere in the few weeks previous.
Elaine, Lily Johnson, Rupert's financee, was
very sorrowful at his departure. Frank By-
num, as the "fickle Englishmanf, Siebal, too
dignified to fight, took care of the ladies in
the absence of their lovers. Nadine Wells,
captain of the Fair, directed the rehearsal,
celebrating the return of the soldiers. First
maiden of the chorus was Willmith Scott,
first youth, Alden Carney.
The second act started with two dancing
couples, Pierrette, Io11a May Morrison, Pierrot,
Harry VVoodburyg Nanette and Phillipe,
Joanne Rogers and Glen Simmons. Tom and
the Squire were played by Donald Dieter and
Jack Nelson. The Egyptian girl was Mickle
Menzie: trumpeter and messenger, Percy Kel-
ler. This act took place after the war ended..
In this act, the soldier boys returned to
their sweethearts with the exception of Ru-
pert, who had been killed at the front. He
was bemoaned by his fiancee, Elaine. Mar-
kuerite welcomed Valentien with open arms,
much changed in her attitude since the war.
After a joyful meeting, they journeyed to the
fair prepared in their honor.
Miss Margaret Scott had charge of cos-
tumes, which were typical of the Germans at
that period. Miss .Iuanda Hawkins had
charge of the dances, which were put on by
the Physical Education classes. They also put
on the interlude between acts. Mr. Harold
George directed the high school orchestra
which gave a prelude. Irene WVi1more had
charge of the ticket sale. Eleanor Weller, ac-
companied by violin music by Lennice Jean
Baer, was accompanist for the production.

Tennis and Golf
ENNIS IS THE next to final Central Kan-
sas League event. Several likely tennis
players reported for tennis tryouts on the high
school courts. An elimination contest was
held and the four best were to play in the
ventral Kansas League tournament. A prac-
tice match was held with Salina in which Alu-
lene was defeated. On May 4, the Central
Kansas League tournament was held at
Lindsborg. Abilene placed fourth in boys'
doubles and fifth in boys, singles. Salina
won first in both doubles and singlesg Ells-
worth took secondg Lindsborg took third, and
Abilene, llhapman' and McPherson tied for
fourth place, The squad consisted of four
new men this year, They were: Ralph Gam-
ber. Bruce Merrill, Robert Casanova, and
Three new clay courts are being fixed up
at the athletic field and as soon as they are
worked flown into shape, they will make very
good courts to play on. The three north
courts are still gravel and they are in better
condition than they were last year.
The annual golf tournament was held at the
Country Club to determine who was to rep-
resent Abilene in the Central Kansas League
tournament. The representatives were John
and Donald Dieter. The tournament was held
on the Chapman Country Club course.
Two dual meets were held with Salina
this year, Abilene losing both times.
A new method was used in the meet this
year. Both players had to count their strokes
together for the final score. The Cowboys fin-
ished in third position, coming in with a to-
tal of 181. Salina was first with a total of
176, and Herington was second with 178.
Other positions were claimed in order by
Liudsborg. Chapman, McPherson, and Ells-
For the first time in years, Abilene did not
have an ent1'y in the Central Kansas League
track and field meet which was held in Sa-
lina, Saturday, May 7. Few boys turned
out for this sport. A few steady men re-
ported for practice, but not enough to make
it worth while to waste time on track. Sev-
eral requests were received by Mr, Marvin
Van Osdol to turn his energies to baseball
rather than track. A meeting of all the boys
was held and a vote was taken on their
choice of continuing track, or dropping it al-
together and adopting baseball. The result was
that track was discontinued and baseball took
its place. A very good team was expected
as quite a few of the boys had had previous
experience in the Twilight League and on oth-
er teams. Practice was held every night, ei-
ther at the athletic field or the city park. A
game was scheduled with Salina at Salina
on May 4. Abilene was defeated. Several oth'
er games were scheduled for the rest of the
All considered. minor sports were fairly
successful this yearg and the greatest value
received was the interest which was aroused
in the under classmen in these sports. Junior
High is beginning to conduct tournaments in
most of the minor sports, this gives the boys
a groundwork in which to build for future at-
tainments. It is observed that more candidates
tried out for the various sports this year than
ever before and while the majority of the
team members were upperclassmen, there are
numerous Sophomores and Freshmen who
barely failed who will be back to carry on in
Next year's prospects in Tennis, Golf, and
Baseball appear exceedingly bright. A number
of lettermen will return, and the interest de-
veloped this year will be increased.
