These impressions made upon the sands of time must not be allowed to fade away through a trivial gust of wind. So We pre- sent this annual-a publication for the pleasure and enjoyment of the student body. ' -THE ANNUAL STAFF. i 2 A Athletic Field Dedication O I. EARL ENDACOTT, our history instructor and class leader, who has shown admirable qualities in guiding his students in the past year along the path of higher development and achievement, Whose dominating influence has con- veyed itself by inspiring courage and confidence into the hearts of those in Contact with him, and who has aided many in their quest for knowledge, We dedicate this 1934 edition of the "Orange and Brown." -THE ANNUAL STAFF. ' Administration l lElVlBlERS OIT THE BOARD OF EDUCA- TION are: C. VV. Taylor, presidentg S. R. llcller. vice-presidentg Howard Keel, Olin Strowig. W. C. Grigg, and Dr. H. H. Bennet. These men are conservative, they are aware of the im- portance of education and they give unstintingly of their time and effort in behalf of the schools and of the taxpayers. At the August meeting of 1925, the board adopted the policy of retiring the bonded indebtedness, which then amounted to fl1SII3,OOO, to pay all current expenses in cash, and gradually to reduce school costs. Since that time, the board has reduced the F. C. GARDNER Superintendent K. S. T. C., Emporia iLife Certifieatej University of Kansas, A. B. , Columbia University, A. M. MARVIN VAN OSDOL Principal K.

School costs have been reduced, although, for the past few years, valuations have diminished almost as rapidly as reductions have been made. The tax levy has been lowered and will no doubt, be further lowered as the bonded debt is paid off., The schools have been constantly improved both as to physical plant and as to scholarship. Exten- sive repairs have been made in all buildings. Schol- arship and student activities are of highest stand- ing. Co-operation and good-will among parents, pupils, and teachers are outstanding characteristics of the Abilene Schools. Board of Education C. W. Taylor, Pres. Dr. H. H. Bennett Howard Keel W. C.

The following persons were elected to guide the class through a very successful year: john Dean Baker, president, Dorothy Buchanan, vice-pres1- dent, Elinor Welcli, secretary, Robert Nottorf, treasurer. Peggy Morse and Vlfayne Zook repre- sented the class in the student council. Class spon- sors were Miss Marjorie Taylor, Miss Mabel Pin- son, Paul Collins, and Doyle K. Brooks. The annual class play, the first dramatic presen- tation of the year, "It Pays to Advertise," was pre- sented at the City Auditorium, November 17, 1933, under the direction of Miss Esther Christmore, as- sisted by Miss Marjorie Taylor. Lois Coulson was elected by the class as a can- didate for annual queen. Eugene Dawson repre- sented the school in the C. K. L. Oration contest and won first place in the league. Dawson was also a member of the debate team. A number of junior boys were prominent in football, basketball, and spring sports and several members of the class took part in the C. K. L. Music Contest. For class projects, members sold candy and pop at the Chapman football game and at the McPher- son basketball game. One of the most outstanding events of the year was the junior-Senior Reception, given by the jun- iors in honor of the seniors. It was held at the Sunflower Hotel, May 4. The juniors, as well as the other classes, pre- sented a sketch class night. This performance con- cluded the activities for the year. TOP ROW fleft to rightj-Huston, G.

This year they selected as their guiding officers: Joan Hogan, president, Betty jean Jones, vice- plresidentg Ruth Mary Nelson, secretary, jean Buchanan, treasurerg Faye Snyder and Dudley Londeen, student council representatives. They were under the able supervision of Miss Juanda Hawkins, Miss Vera Lawellin, Albert Hawkes, and Roy Martin. ln order to make money for the class, candy was sold at the McPherson football game and also at the Salina basketball game. Betty Jean Jones was chosen the sophomore candidate for annual queen. In the sales cam- paign, which was held this year to arouse the stu- dents' interest, the sophomores ranked third. Repeating their performance of their freshman year, the sophomores remained third on the honor roll. They were also outstanding in the sports of the school. Four sophomore boys were on the first football 'team and five on the basketball squad, while many other boys were members of the sec- ond teams. Not to be outdone by the boys, the girls were also prominent in basketball, hockey, volley ball, and tennis. Sophomore girls were especially outstanding in dancing. There were more second- year girls in the G. A. A. Revue than any other class. The sophomores together with the freshmen and juniors ended their school activities for the year 1933-34 with a stunt given on class night, May 22. TOP ROW fleft to rightj-Sparks, Witwer, E.

S. were swung open in September, one hundred and fifty- two freshmen entered the portals of the school, to become one of the outstanding classes. A large per cent of this group "weathered" their initiatory year and proudly received the title of sophomore. These pilgrims were led by a group which in- cluded: Junior Duckwall, president, Arlene Bevan, vice-president, and Charles Horner, secretary- treasurer. Jean Murphy and Douglas Brown rep- resented the class in the student council. Members of the faculty are divided among the four classes to act as sponsors. The four leaders chosen to guide this class were: Miss Evelyn Bloome, head sponsor, who was assisted by Miss Ethel Giles, Mr. l Floyd Currier, and Mr. Fred Allison. The various home football and basketball games are given over to the classes and clubs for the sell- ing of candy and pop. This year the freshmen sold at the Abilene-Ellsworth football game and at the Abilene-Chapman basketball game. The proceeds from these two class projects went toward buying this page. The annual sales campaign, in which all classes take part, was held differently this year. Each class selected their candidate for annual queen and the group selling the most annuals won. The freshmen chose Jean Murphy and at the close of the campaign, found themselves in second place. The activities of these freshmen for the year 1933-34 ended with their stunt on class night.

Hungarian Melody High School Orchestra City Auditorium Eight o'Clock Senior Class Prophecy E STOOD IN THE LABORATORY of Pro- fessor Lynden Gamber, P. D. Q., B. V. D. who was about to demonstrate his "time turningn machine to me. There is a crash, a flash of light, a whirr of grinding wheels, as the professor turns the dials and Starts the machine in operation, and upon the magic screen we see the former graduates of Abilene High School busily engaged in their future occupations. First appears none other than "Skyscraper" Rutz. who has been enjoying notable success as "Durante, the Human Bloodhound." After many years, Rutz finally succeeded in capturing the two most famous bootleggers of all times, Bill Owens and "Ozz" Simmons. "Gunner" Mustard, King of the Underworld, swore out the warrant because the boys cheated him in a crap game. Now we see the "Slippety Sloop Carnival Com- pany," and who should be billed as "Atlas" but Dwight Pickerall. As our glance roves we stop be- fore the Hawaiian Village and there, dancing to the- tune of Kenney Holmes "gutter,', are the famous "Shakem" Yancey, Edna Flanagan, and "Hips, Hips, Hooray" Hockensmith. We are sad- dened by the death of Robert Froelich who was last seen going into the village with a lawnmower. Dr. Dwight Hopkins. "Coroner," later reported that the body was sold for buzzard bait. The machine roves on and in quick succession, the following appear: Al Makins, Don Billings, "Hairbreadth Harry" Leonard, fhusband of the no- torious "Belinda" Gans, international beautyj and Bill Weaver, all are now members of the "Rock Chalk Quartettef' It seems that federal agents caught them raising notes fbank notesj and Uncle Sam decided to further their education of music at the government institution of voice at Sing Sing. Director Leonard states that they will remain in school for an indefinite time. C20 to 50 years.j Oliver Hartenstein and Company, Uean Rogersj, are proprietors of the "Whoopie Night Club." For the adagio dancing team they feature John Ayers and Doris Van Duyne. In the orchestra, directed by Glen Strawsburg, "King of Jews," we find Law- rence Dieffenbaugh, piccolo player, Dorothy Mil- ler, ivory ticklerg and Cleobelle Seaton, torch singer. Willard Bethe has discarded his eleventh wife, Melva "Catch 'em" Fisher, in favor of a more tor- rid number called Lydia "Linger" Long. The grounds were inhuman treatment of Willard's pet boa constrictor. Evelyn Landis is mining for gold somewhere in New York City, where it is rumored Dorothy Dahnke and Lila Ruth Thurber jumped from the roof of Charles Martsolf's penthouse. Glen Weber and the two Tinklers are at their home in Topeka. They say they thoroughly enjoy the asbestos pictureS, overstuffed walls, and pad- ded furniture. Betty Lou Harris and Francis "Pretty Boy" Brown were arrested in Detroit, Kansas, for selling John Lesher and wife, Lucille Hugg, a set of fur- lined beer mugs which they stole from the apart- gif-:nt of "Carry Nation" Stants, W. C. T. U. presi- Cnt. joy McMillan, jaunita Reneau, and Bernadell Steele are chorus girls in Chicago. It is 1'L11'I101'CC1 that they are vieing for the love of the famous heartbreaker, Earl Stoffer. Hazel Weber, Marie Haslouer, and Ruth Foster are kindergarten teach- ers at Oxford. Dorothy jean Miller and husband, Lyle Fackler, are motoring to Reno, Nevada, to see Dorothy Amsbaugh who is a waitress in Leroy Anderson's "Swept Off the Floor" Cafe. Opal Hoffman is a noted singer with the Lauer "Metropoetical Opera Company." Ruth McKee helps her sing the choruses. They are now at the local Salvation Army meeting. Cecilia Pientka, Inez Hicks, and Adeline Brown are now confirmed old maid school teachers. They teach typing, book- keeping and foods in dear old A. H. S. Doris Knox is now a substitute teacher in the library and is taking the place of Miss Giles who is ill with the whooping cough. Frances and Helen Kauffman are co-presidents of the "Tickling Cough Syrup Companyf' They say that life is just one big sore throat to them. Bruce Nemecheck was struck by a model "T" Ford one night after a lecture in which he proved that the world was flat like Bobby Brooks's head. It is rumored that "Cueball" has sold his "brain t???j container" to the Giese Billiard Manufactur- ing Company. Dean Issitt is pastor at the Lansing Chapel. Some of his regular listeners are Wilbur White, Art Nichols and Herb Meuli. Herb absconded with the class funds in his senior year at A. H. S. Agnes Ayers, who it was rumored has matrimon- ial tendencies toward Kenneth Whitehair, is nurs- ing him back to health. It seems that he jilted Vivian Stevens, Chicago gun moll, and received a terrific beating at her hands. Jack Nelson and wife, Ruth Hurd, are now head clerks in Viola's store. Hazel Huston is a mission- ary in "Teachem All" in the South Sea Islands. Mary Lucille Asling and Bernice Berger are dem- onstrators of the "joe Whitehair Perfect Calf De- veloper." joe Bonfield is chief assistant janitor at Abilene High, but Steven Hollenback, president of the school board, expects to dismiss him soon. Donald Berger has written several books. Among his best sellers are, "How to Cheat on Endy's Quiz- zes," and "Ten Years in the Reformatoryf' Alma Eisele, Lucille Cormack and Nova Kohart are engaged in cleaning at the Brown Building. Anna Milligan is a resident at the Old Folks' Home. Lenore Hatter, after her disastrous affair with Parson Issitt, has firmly declared never to love another. She now writes for the "True Confes- sion Magazinef' Mildred Hoover, Gwendolyn Ro- mine, and Fern Sampson are now featured as fan dancers in the Cave of the Winds. Adah Hamilton is posing as a model for "Elmer- liettio" Hollar, who after his discharge from the New York Street Cleaning Department, decided to study art. Charlotte Shearer is engaged as a seamstress in a nudist colony somewhere in New York. Imogene Tyler is a violin scraper with Cab Cut- away's Orchestra. Thelma White is their featured blues singer. And lastly as the picture begins to fade, whom should we see but our own former class president, Margaret Whitehair, who is im- mensely enjoying her second childhood at the Chil- dren's Wonderland in the basement of the new Duckwall Store. How she does attract trade by her winsome smile! "VVell," I said, looking at Gamber, "It's a great old world after all." "Yes," he answered, and stepped to the wine closet, took out a bottle of Sand Springs water and drank to the health of the future graduates of A. H. S. Written and decomposed by the third assistant reporter on the staff of the "Scientific Daily." DONALD "DOC" DIETER. Class History By OPAL HOFFMAN FTER FOUR YEARS of pioneering in a path all its own, the senior class of 1934 has at last arrived at its destination, and journey- worn, dusty traveling cloaks have been replaced by caps and gowns. The goal the seniors have long sought to achieve has at last come to view. Every journey has its rainy days and its sunny days. And through sunshine and shadow the class has eo-operated to overcome resisting obstacles and to blaze a trail to success. Barriers have been con- quered, and the path hewn with victories and some defeats as well, yet our sturdy, courageous little band has advanced, fearless, and undaunted, toward the treasure which the future alone can reveal. In the year IQSO our determined group first en- tered the halls of A. H. S. in a quest for knowledge. Some were unable to continue the journey, and the numbers dwindled. But we were not disheartened. Our guide was Alfred Makins, assisted by Harry Leonard, Gwendolyn Romine, and Herbert Meuli. Early in its career as pioneers, the class demon- strated unusual scholastic, literary, and athletic ability. The second year was one of greater success and achievement. Under the direction of Dean Issitt and his assistants, Gwendolyn Romine, Margaret Whitehair, and Herbert Meuli, we gained speed. As we journeyed, we came upon precious treas- ures-the golden beauty of companionship anfd sportsmanship, the glitter of the silver of talent and knowledge. Having now struggled on for two years in the forests of darkness, and having aceomplisl.ed to some degree the task of clearing this wooded thick- et for future settlement, we set up a new govern- ment, headed by Margaret Whitehair, whose aides- de-camp were Alfred Makins, Hazel W'e.er. and Herbert Meuli. One of the outstanding events of this, our third year, was the presentation of the junior play, "Her Friend the King," in which elev- en of our number took part. The play was directed by Miss Esther Christmore, and was received by an attentive audience, whose hearty applause proved that the production was a success. The paramount social event was the junior-Senior Re- ception, carried out in the theme of a circus. On class night a clever stunt was presented. At last have we sighted the clearing ahead. With the ultimate aim in view, we turn back for a few moments the pages of time to recall memories, both sad and gay, of our experiences through four years of travel, during which time we have penetrated hitherto-unexplored lands, and have become wiser- better fitted for the future that awaits us. VVe were guided to the close by Margaret Whitehair, Alfred Makins, Hazel Weber, and Herbert Meuli. The three-act comedy, "Seven Chances," with a large cast directed by Miss Christmore, was pro- duced to an enthusiastic audience. The crowning event was our entertainment at the reception by the junior class on May 4. With that we felt that our high school days had been brought almost to a close, and as we make our exit from the portals of A. H. S., we turn with sad hearts to bid our dear Alma Mater a fond "adieu." Class Will PON BEHALF OF MY CLIENT, the class of 1934, of Abilene High School, of the City of Abilene, County of Dickinson, State of Kan- sas, United States of America, I have called you to- gether upon this solemn and serious occasion, to listen to her last VVill and Testament, and to re- ceive from her dying hand the few gifts she has to bestow in her last moments. These are her decisions, as at last definitely ar- rived at through very deliberate consideration. She hereby gives the following items into your posses- sion, praying that you will accept them as a sacred trust from one who has gone before. Listen my children-whoa-I mean-listen then, one and all, while I read the document as duly drawn up and sworn to: We, the class of 1934, being about to pass out of this sphere of education in full possession of a cram- med mind, well trained memory, and almost super- human understanding, do make and publish this, our last Will and Testament. ITEMS: To the whole school we leave our bull-headed- ness, dumbness, laziness, wise-cracks, and ability to skip school without being caught. We give and bequeath to our dear faculty a few days and nights of peaceg no longer do they have to worry over whether or not students have their lessons. To the juniors we leave our desire to learn physics, and our art of cheating on history quizzes. To the sophomores we leave our "iron hand" over the "freshies" and hope they won't hurt them -much-next year. To the "freshies" we leave the "A's" and the hon- or roll and our ultra-smartness. QP. S. Don't wait to long for these, freshmen.j QContinued on page 315 ' Joe Bonfield, Faye Verla Engle, Donald Makins HE STUDENT COUNCIL, governing organ- ization of the school, held its first meeting of the school year, 1933-34, September II, 1933. The officers of the council were: joe Bon- field, president, Faye Verla Engle, vice-president, Donald Makins, secretary-treasurer. The head sponsor of the organization was Miss Winnie Scott, who was assisted by Albert Hawkes. Twenty- three members, representing every organization in the school, made up the student governing board. The purposes of the organization are to promote in all ways the best interests of the school, to aid the internal administration of the school, to foster sentiments of law and order, to promote the gen- eral activities of the school, and to develop in the student a growing appreciation of membership in a democracy by providing educational possibilities and privileges of participating in such a democracy. Outstanding accomplishments of the year includ- ed the sponsoring of the student activity ticket at 32.50. The student council reduced the number of stolen and lost articles by checking hall lockers at various hours during the day and the owners of the unlocked lockers were given seventh hours. The council also sponsored the lost and found box, entered a float in the Dickinson County Fair pa- rade, and presented several chapels during the year. The athletic committee planned all the pep chapels, held before every game. At the first of the year the council had the yells and songs of A. H. S. mim- eographed and given to the students. Student Council Ojjiceffs Seven committees of the council functioned steadily throughout the year. These committees were asked to hand in written reports of their pro- ceedings at the close of each semester, and the rec- ords are kept with the minutes of the organiza- t1on's meetings. The chairmen of the committees were: Ruth Hurd, chapel, Peggy Morse, social, Margaret Whitehair, organization, Lynden Gamber, public- ity, Bill Shearer, athletic, Glenn Simmons, lost and found, Ellwood Baker, house and grounds. Every member of the council served on one of these com- mittees. The annual banquet was held at the Hotel Sun- flower, Thursday, March 15. "St. Patrick's" was the theme of the evening, which was carried out in the table decorations and program. The speakers, introduced by Joe Bonfield, toastmaster, included Donald Dieter, Eugene Dawson, Jean Murphy, Wayne Zook, Faye Verla Engle, and Supt. F. C. Gardner. Each member of the council invited a guest, and following the banquet, the group at- tended a picture show at the Lyric Theater. In April, the lawn was reseeded and shrubbery replaced. Also, the school ground was cleaned un- der the direction of the student council. As the last accomplishment of the year, the stu- dents of A. H.

T VVAS DECIDED that by raising the cost of the annual from fifty cents to seventy-five cents and using the magazine type inaugurated last year, it would be possible to continue the "Or- ange and Brown" for the students of A. H. S. Early in the fall, a staff was chosen to edit the 1933-34 yearbook. Margaret VVhitehair was chosen editor-in-chief, Hazel NVeber, associate editor, Ruth Hurd, organizations editor, Agnes Ayers, photograph editor, Bruce Nemecheck, sports edi- tor, and Elmer Hollar, business manager. This group, together with their advisor, Raymond Lees, have endeavored to bring to the students and fac- ulty of the high school an annual that will live up to the high standards which have been set up by the previous yearbooks. Under the management of Elmer Hollar, an in- teresting sales campaign was held to arouse the in- terest of the student body. Each class chose a can-- didate for annual queen, and the class selling the largest number of yearbooks had a page in the an- nual dedicated to their queen. The four girls chos- en were: Frances Kauffman, senior, Lois Coulson, junior, Betty Jean jones, sophomore, and jean Murphy, freshman. The seniors sold the most an- nuals, so Frances Kauffman was crowned annual queen. A different feature of this year's campaign was that money which had been checked in at the opening of school for locker rent could be used for the payment on an annual. The staff chose as its theme American History, and has attempted to carry this theme throughout the annual. The dedication is made to J. Earl En- dacott, instructor of American History in Abilene High School. As has been the custom of previous years, con- tracts were ,let to the Burger-Baird Engraving Company of Kansas City, Missouri, and to the Re- flector Printing Company of Abilene to print the annual. Organization pictures, group pictures, and snap- shots were taken throughout the year. Before Thanksgiving all the individual pictures of the sen- iors were taken. All the photography work was .lone this year by the Jeffcoat Studiti. HE ABlLENE HIGH SCHOOL "BOOSTER" has endeavored throughout the year to convey to the students and faculty the aims, deeds, and accomplishments of our high school. lt has been the policy of this bi--monthly paper to stimu- late sportsmanship and school spirit. ln order to give the members of the journalism class experience in the various lines of newspaper work, a new staff was elected three times during the year. The three editors-in-chief of the "Boos- ter" were: Alfred Makins, Betty Lou Harris, and Rosemary Gans, the news-editors were: Gwen- dolyn Romine, Stelouise Hockensmith, Lila Ruth Thurber, and Lynden Gamber. Other positions on the staff include: assignment editor, make-up edi- tor, sports editor, and business managers. Of all of these, the job of business manager is one of the most important. It is through the effort of these managers to collect advertisements from the busi- ness houses of Abilene, that the "Booster" is able to exist. Rosemary Gans, Junior Leonard, Glen Simmons, Lynden Gamber, Don Duckwall, Juanita Reneau, Hazel Huston, Stelouise Hockensmith, Robert Froelich, and Donald Dieter acted as busi- ness managers during the year. The entire journalism class acted as proof read- ers and copy readers. Raymond Lees, instructor, was the advisor of the staff. As the custom has been in the past, the journal- ism class had the privilege of putting out the Abi- lene sReflector, january 26. Betty Lou Harris, Stelouise Hockensmith, and Gwendolyn Romine were editors. The "Booster" was represented at the annual High School Journalism Conference held in Law- rence, October I7 and I8 by eight students, one of which, Margaret Wliitehair, was chosen to repre- sent all the girls at the conference in response to the address of welcome. A contract was let to the Reflector Printing Company for printing of the "Booster.,' During the year twelve issues were published by the journ- alism students. Although few of the students who take journal- ism in high school will enter the newspaper field, the training gained in this class will be beneficial in future business life.

HE HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA, composed of forty-seven members, has completed an- other successful year under the leadership of Harold E. George. The organization made several appearances throughout the year including a musical introduc- tion to the junior class play and a half-hour pro- gram preceding the G. A. A. Revue. In the spring they were called on by the seniors to help with the production of "Seven Chances." This group of musicians rendered its laSt program at the gradua- tion exercises in the City Auditorium, May 23. The goal, that the orchestra set for itself second semester, was first place in the C. K. L. Music Con- test. The selection chosen for the orchestra was "Andante and'Gavotte," written by George DaSch of the Chicago Civic Symphony orchestra. Through graduation the organization will lose ten members. This is the first time in six years that members of the orchestra have graduated un- der the same music supervisor that they started with as freshmen. In the Central Kansas League Music Contest held in Salina April 20, the orchestra received fourth place. FRONT-Kinderclick, Stratner. HE A. H. S. BAND, under the direction of Har- old E. George, has received favorable com- - ment wherever it has appeared. The band has a membership of sixty-five.

HE YEAR 1933-34 was an interesting year for the Girls' Glee Club. Under the baton of Mr. Harold E. George, the girls made a very ex- cellent demonstration of their talent and ability. The Glee Club consisted of thirty-three members. Before the Music Contest several eliminations were made in the Glee Club. Two tryouts were held for the solo events. ln the first all contestants but two were eliminated in both soprano and alto solos. These four were given more intensive train- ing, and were allowed a second opportunity at the final elimination in early April. From the personnel of the Glee Club, Mr. George selected the sextet. The members of this group were as follows: Faye Snyder and Opal Hoffman, first sopranosg Frances Kauffman and Katherine Moot, second sopranos, Maxine Bishop and Jean Buchanan, altos. Alternates were Hazel Weber, Ruth Mary Nelson, and Phyllis Lee Havener. In the C. K. L. Music Contest held in Salina April 20, the Abilene entrants placed as follows: Faye Snyder, in the girls' high voice, Frances Kauffman, girls' low voice, girls' sextet, and the girls' Glee Club. HE BOYS' GLEE CLUB of A. H. S. under the able direction of Harold F.. George was one of the most outstanding clubs of its kind ever produced in this school. The club has over thirty members and was well received from its first ap-- pearance to the last. This group made many appearances throughout the year, the first one in the high school chapel. At that time they showed great possibilities. Other appearances included: the Junior High, the Musical Department Concert held at the City Auditorium. and the broadcast over KFBI, in which program the soloists, and quartette took part. At the Central Kansas League Music contest in Salina, Loy Leffingwell took the only first place for Abilene in the bass solo event. This contest number was "At the Close of Another Day." The boys' glee club placed seventh and the quartet re- ceived fifth place. This quartet was composed of Robert Nottorf. Vernon Witwer, Gilbert Norman, and Loy Leffingwell. Bishop Anderson placed sev- enth in the boys' high voice event. Plans are being made to organize this club into a pep organization as well as a music club. This should increase considerably the school spirit. Boys' Glee Club TOP ROW Cleft to rightj-Bowles, Norman, Collins, George, MacDonald, Weber, Cavender.

Simmons, HE HI-Y CLUB, whose purpose is to create and maintain in the community and school high standards of Christian character by band- ing the boys together for clean living, clean speech, clean sports, and clean scholarship, was reorganized this year with the largest membership ever enrolled in the Abilene school. The organization was placed under the sponsorship of Doyle K. Brooks and Roy Martin. Early in the year, three boys: joe Bonfield, Al- fred Makins, and Glenn Simmons were chosen by the men's faculty to supervise the re-organization of the Hi-Y club in the school. On October I6, a general assembly of all boys in school was held for the purpose of creating enthusiasm for the promo- tion of the Hi-Y club. In this chapel Alfred Makins and Joe Bonfield, former members, and supervisors of the assembly, explained to the boys the principles and benefits of the Hi-Y, and urged that every boy join. The dues were reduced to twenty-five cents and the en- rollment numbered almost ten per cent. In the fall shortly after reorganizing, the Hi-Y Retreat was held at Brown Memorial Park for the purpose of allowing the members to become better acquainted with each other. At the Christmas chapel the organization joined forces with the Girl Reserves in the presentation of an appropriate drama, portraying the birth of Christ and the arrival of the Wise Men. Follow- ing this, the white gift chapel was presented. Throughout the year numerous meetings were held, and with one exception, home talent was used for entertainment. This one exception was a pro- gram presented by the Y. M. C. A. of Manhattan. Three members of the club attended the Hi-Y Conference at junction City, November 24-26. The delegates were: Glenn Simmons, president, Don- ald Dieter, program chairmang and Don Donnelly, acting secretary. Registration of all delegates and sponsors was held Friday morning, November 24. This marked the beginning of the conference. Saturday noon the guests were entertained at a luncheon, after which a group picture Was taken of all conference members present. In the afternoon the delegates visited Fort Riley Brooks, Rutz, Martin, Dieter. and were shown all the points of interest of the Fort. In the evening the closing banquet was held, and all chapters having sufficient merits received their awards. This was accompanied by a very in- teresting musical program. The banquet was closed with a discussion of business matters. The convention ended Sunday, after a period spent in devotions, and a discussion on the subject, "Good Christian Character." The last meeting of the year was held at the Brown Memorial Park, where the organization had their second semester retreat and picnic. At this final meeting, Simmons turned the organization over to Eugene Dawson, the 1935 Hi-Y president. The picnic consisted of roasted wieners, buns, apples, cookies, and marshmallows. Before the lunch, the members went swimming in the lake. Following the refreshments, the group circled around the campfire and listened to a most inter- esting program composed of musical numbers on the mandolin and various vocal numbers. The re- treat ended with farewell talks from several mem- bers and group singing. The officers of the club are chosen according to their classification in the school, or as follows: president, a senior, vice-president, junior, secre- tary, sophomore, and treasurer, freshman. Other officers such as student council and program chair- men are elected by a majority vote with no restric- tions as to classification. The following officers were elected to compose the cabinet of next year: Eugene Dawson, presi- dent, Ralph Mcllflillan, vice-president, Charles Hopkins, secretary. The office of treasurer was not voted upon because it is to be filled by a fresh- man, and he will be voted in for the office at the first Hi-Y meeting of next year. Bill Shearer was elected program chairman. Walt Akers was elect- ed conduct chairman, and the future student coun- cil representatives are Donald Makins and Dwight Zook. j The officers of the year were: Glenn Simmons, presidentg Ellis McKanna, vice-president, Ralph McMillan, secretary, Charles Hopkins, treasurer, Donald Dieter, program chairman, Clarence Rutz, conduct chairman, Alfred Makins and Brooks Gibbs, student council representativesg Dwight Lange, property chairman.

IGHWAYS WAS CHOSEN as the theme for the 1933-34 by the G. R. cabinet at their frist meeting. The G. R. year began with the Big and Little Sister Party in September. This was a backward party. All the new members were re- quired to wear their dresses backward, and were bade goodbye as they entered the building. The rest of the party proceeded in the same manner. The service committee, with Verda Stants as chairman, had charge of distributing baskets to the needy at Thanksgiving. The food and clothing for these baskets was furnished by the club mem- bers. This committee also conducted the Red Cross drive. The music committee, under the leadership of Dorothy Buchanan, furnished the music for all the meetings and had charge of group singing. In con- nection with this, Dorothy Miller was pianist for the year. She played for all the meetings and was accompanist for the programs. The finance committee, conducted by Mabel Mel- lor, made the money for G. R. This was done by candy sales after school and the book exchange. Students could buy or sell books through the ex- change and the Girl Reserves received a small com- mission on the sale. The membership committee, headed by Vivian Stevens, conducted the member- ship drive. It was held as a contest the second se- mester, with the ,losers putting on a program at the next meeting. Devotions for the meetings were provided by Lila Ruth Thurber and the devotions committee. They also had charge of the celebration of the World Week of Prayer for the high school. The publicity for G. R. was in charge of the pub- licity committee under the guidance of the chair- man, Ruth Foster. This committee, alternating with the seven others, made for the bulletin board, appropriate posters which told of the meetings and work of the club. Esther ,lo Davis with the program committee planned and carried out all the programs for the meetings and parties. The social committee, Jeanne Rogers, chairman, had charge of the Big and Little Sister party and the Mother-Daughter banquet. Seven Girl Reserves attended the G. R. Confer- ence at Minneapolis in November, where they were entertained and instructed and got new ideas for their club. Those who went to conference were: Dorothy Amsbaugh, Ruth Foster, Lila Ruth Thur- ber, Dorothy Miller, Hazel Weber, Stelouise Hock- ensmith, and Dorothy ,lean Miller. The G. R. and l-li-Y had a joint meeting at Christ- mas. This was the annual white gift service for the children in Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. At this season the G. R. also sold candles and sang Christmas carols. In December the names of "Sunshine Sisters" were drawn in keeping with the "Highways" theme. Letters, gifts, and other remembrances were sent to these "Sunshine Sisters" and at the February meeting the names were revealed. The largest event of the G. R. year was the an- nual Mother-Daughter banquet, May I. The theme "Highways" was also carried out in this with mini- ature mail boxes at each place containing three let- ters, the menu, program, and list of old and new officers. Tables were attractively decorated with pastel colored May poles and spring flowers. Ruth Fengel, past G. R. president, acted as gardener and conducted the installation services. This year's president, Hazel Weber, is succeeded by Faye Verla Engle, vice-president, Vivian Stevens, is replaced by Betty Jean Jones. Bernadine Stants takes Faye Verla Engle's place as secretary, and Carolyn Green succeeds Betty jean Jones as treasurer. The new cabinet members installed were: service committee chairman, Doris Eicholtzg program, Mary Alice Steelsmithg social, Lucille Holmes, fi- nance, Mary -lane Lucier, music, Faye Snyder, publicity, Virginia Mason, devotions, Pauline Bear, membership, Betty jean Jones, Pianist, Renee Johnson, and student council representative, Es- ther Io Davis. Both the retiring and incoming cabinets went to the girls' camp at Brown Memorial Park for G. R. retreat, Saturday and Sunday, May I2-13. The last meeting of the organization was held Tuesday, May 15, in honor, especially ,of the graduation seniors. The G. R. has been assisted this year by the spon- sors, Miss Neva Weisgerber, Miss Vera Lawellin, Miss Evelyn Bloome, and the local Y. W. C. A. Girls' Athletic Association TOP ROW Cleft to rightl-J.

HE GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION started another successful year September 21, 1933, with a meeting for all the girls in high school who were interested in athletics. This meet- ing was also for the purpose of introducing the new executive board and sponsors. The board chosen to lead the G. A. A. this year met every month, at which time the programs for the next meeting and parties were planned. This group included: Stelouise Hockensmith, president, Ruth Hurd, vice-president and program chairman, Peggy Morse, secretary, Jean Buchanan, treasur- er, jean Goodwin, social chairman, Inez Hicks, publicity, Cleobelle Seaton, membership chairman, Elinor Welch, pianist, Rosemary Gans, hike cap- tain, Renee johnson, song leader, and Mildred Yancey, student council representative. VVork began immediately on the earning of points for awards. Before a student can belong to G. A. A. she must go on enough hikes to total fifty miles. By walking this distance, she will receive one hun- dred points. The first award, given when 600 points have been earned, is a pin in the shape of a sunflower with the letters G. A. A. inscribed upon it. The second award is a chenille letter, in the school colors, with the outline of the state of Kan- sas and lettered with G. A. A. To win this, 1200 points are necessary. The third award is a chen- ille letter in the state G. A. A.'s colors, which are brown and gold. This letter is similar to the sec- ond award, however, four hundred additional points must be earned to win this. When a total of two thousand points have been earned, the fourth and final award is given. This award is a gold "K" let- tered with G. A. A. and again the state colors are used. Several girls in the organization will receive their "K's" this year. The Abilene G. A. A. is a member of the State Girls' Athletic Association which was organized for the purpose of offering a standardized program of athletics for girls. Awards are given to the girls who have earned the necessary amount of points for competing in the different phases of athletics. One of the outstanding projects sponsored by the G .A. A. was the Follies of 1934. This revue, which included sixty talented high school students, was presented at the City Auditorium February 9. Throughout the year, four groups of girls at- tended Play Days, held in different parts of the state. Early in the year, six freshman members journeyed to Marymount College in Salina. Later six sophomore girls went to Concordia where one of the group, Faye Snyder, was crowned posture queen. On April 28, the old and new executive boards with the club sponsors attended Play Day at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, April 28. Five Abilene girls were chosen to go to the finals of the posture contest and in the last decision, Vir- ginia Eicholtz received second place. Several outstanding parties and programs were given during the year. On November 23, the G. A. iX.'s donned "kid" clothes and attended a party that brought back fond memories of former days. On December 21, a surprise meeting was held after school, in which every member received a gift and an Eskimo pie. The officers for the year 1934-35 include: Peg- gy lX'I.orse, president, Helen Lucile Hutchison, vice- president, joan Hogan, secretary, Jean Wilkins, treasurer, Virginia June Lorenson, social chair- man, janet Miller, publicity, Elinor Welch, pian- ist, Margaret Hurst, hike captain, Jean Buchanan, song leader, and Dorothy Buchanan, student coun- cil representative. Every school which is a member in good stand- ing in K. H. S. A. A. is entitled to membership in G. A. -X., but no inter-scholastic competition is per- mitted among the schools which take up this girls' program. The Girls' Athletic Association ended the activ- ities for the school year 1933-34 by spending a week-end at lllary Dell Camp. Both the old and new executive boards and sponsors were present. During the year several interesting features on the program were health talks which were given by the various physicians of the town. A girl receives four points toward the award for which she is working, for each of these talks that she hears. For each award a girl earns she must keep health charts for sixteen weeks. Several girls gave interesting reports on sports, posture, and health. After most of the meetings the girls sang group songs. l r Commercial Club TOP ROW Cleft to rightj-Corwin, B.

HE TSH CHAY JAY CLUB is an organization of fourteen students formed by the members of the advanced shorthand class. Candidates for membership shall have had one year of short- hand, and when voted upon shall be enrolled in the Abilene High School as a second-year student. The officers of this organization are: Lenore Hatter, president, Alice Hees, vice-president, Char- lotte Shearer, secretary. The purpose of this club is to gain a more definite knowledge of the principles of shorthand through both reading and writing, and to build a greater and better vocabulary of both English and short- hand words as a foundation for a stenographic and secretarial career. Meetings are held the second Friday of the month or as nearly a week after the arrival of the "Gregg VVriters" as is convenient, without conflicting with the regular Commercial Club and other organiza- tions. The club members are divided into nine groups, each of which has charge of one meeting. It is the duty of the committees to organize, plan, and present a program with the assistance of the club sponsor, Miss Mabel Pinson. Also, it is the priv- ilege of these committees to call on any member of the club to assist in the presentation of the pro- gram.

Throughout the year this group held thirty-nine debates. Due to bad weather, the debaters were unable to attend the Emporia tournament. How- ever, on February 7, the squad took an all-day trip which included debates with Junction City, Man- hattan, and Clay Center. To close a successful season the debaters jour- neyed to Salina for the C. K. L. tournament. Salina and Abilene each lost one debate, but Salina was given first place because their team ranked higher in individual percentages, Abilene was awarded second place. This is the second time in the history of the school that the debate team has ranked that high. Mary Mildred Hooper was awarded first place in the C. K. L. Declamation Contest held in Mc- Pherson for the reading of "The Alien" by Norman Bruce. Abilene also received a first place when Eu- gene Dawson gave his oration entitled "The En- emy Within Our Walls." Dawson, Huston, E. Baker. HE ABILENE CHAPTER of the National Honor Society was granted charter number 674. Under this plan of organization, the prin- cipal and members of the faculty have the privilege of choosing for membership fifteen per cent of those whose rank in scholarship is in the upper one-third of the senior class. Three points in addition to scholarship are taken into consideration, namely: Leadership, character, and service. Fifteen stu- dents were chosen by Principal Marvin Van Osdol and members of the faculty committee. Before the banquet the group elected the follow- ing officers: Gwendolyn Romine, president, Betty Lou Harris, vice-president, Ruth Hurd, secretary, Herbert Meuli, treasurer. The society held its banquet and formal initia- tion ceremony Tuesday evening, March 6, at the Lutheran Church.

S THE FIRST DRAMATIC PRODUCTION . of the year, the juniors presented, "It Pays to Advertise," a three-act comedy written by Roi Cooper Megrue and Walter Hackett. Leading, roles were portrayed by Eugene Daw- son, lag Rodney Martin, and Faye Verla Engle, as Mary Grayson. Cyrus Martin, played by Ellwood Baker, was young Rodney's father and a soap man- ufacturer. He had hired Miss Grayson to encour- age Rodney to become a successful business man. Meanwhile, Rodney discovered an old soap recipe. Ambrose Peale, i11 reality Dwight Zook, was a very capable advertising agent, and he decided to go into this new business with Rodney. Another of their agents, Ellory Clark, played by Wayne Zook, is the sou of Mr. Martin's worst enemy. Meanwhile, Countess de Beaurin, Elinor VVelch, arrived from France, and, in speaking that language, made a soap contract which later proved false. Finally, the news of Rodney and Miss Gray-- son's .marriage is revealed. Other members of the cast were: Harold Larsen as William Smith, Robert Nottorf as Donald Mc- Clfiesneyg Harold Kauffman ag George Bronson: Mary Jane Lucier as Miss Burke, Pauline Bear as Marie, Emmett Hesselbarth as Johnson, and four sandwich parade 'men: Harold Todd, Kenneth Kean, William Young, Hllfl Ward Cavender. EVEN CHANCES was presented by the seniors as the last dramatic production of their high school careers at the'City Auditorium, April 27. The able coaching of Misses Esther Christ- -more and Marjorie Taylor together with the ef- forts of the cast made the play all that is required of a senior class. ' Jimmie Shannon, portrayed by Jack Nelson, was a bashful young bachelor who fell 'heir-to his grand- father's millions, if he were married by his fast- approaching thirtieth birthday. A dinner party was arranged by Jin11nie's right-hand 111an, Billy llleekin, played by Robert Froelich, after which Jimmie went through seveniproposals. For one r.ea- son and another all seven refused his offer of mar- riage, and prospects began to look bad until in all seven cases the girls-reconsidered. In the meantime,.the supposedly confirmed bach- lor had fallen in love with Ruth Hurd, who carried the role of Anne Windsor, and with only thirty min- utes before the deadline, gained her consent, Other members of the cast included the members of Shannon's club: Don Duckwall, Lynden Gamber, Glenn Weber, Bruce Nemecheck, and Lowell Lauer, as houseman.

Athletic Department URING THE PAST NINE YEARS, Marvin Van Osdol has coached the athletics in the Abilene High School, and has produced three C. K. L. championship football teams and two basketball championship teams. "Van" received his high school education in Pret- ty Prairie, Kansas, where he received four letters in basketball. He attended college at the Kan- sas State Teachers College of Emporia and received a B. S. Degree in Education. Wliile in college, he was awarded three letters in both basketball and football. This year "Van,' was both coach and principal of A. H. S. Next year he will give up coaching and devote all of his time to his position as principal. During the nine years "Van" has been in Abilene, the athletic department has grown, not only as to the making of good teams, but it has been self- supporting. Abilene now possesses one of the best FLOYD S. CURRIER, B. S. in Ed. . Kansas State Teachers College, Emporia ALBERT W. HAWKES, B. S. in Ed. Kansas State College, Hays MARVIN W. VAN OSDQL, B.

BOTTOM ROW-Carroll, Gibbs, Garten, Franklin, Huston, McMillan, Witwer, Todd, Emery, Curtis HIC "Cowboys," starting the football season with only one veteran "Cowhand" on the squad, kicked over the old dopebucket and tied for second place in the C. K. L., with the Mc- Pherson "Bulldogs." The Herington "Railroaders" came in in first place. With the only letterman, Wilbur White, at quar- terback, Van Osdol, Currier, and Hawkes built a team which gave Abilene its first hopes of winning the 1934 C. K. L. sweepstakes. The squad lost but two league and two non-league games. The season opener was a league tilt with Linds- borg on Abilene's field the night of September 22. The "Cowboys" defeated the "Vikings" by a wide margin of 13-o. This was the first of a series of victories which lasted until junction City defeated them October 27. The first victory for Abilene was followed by a second in a non-league encounter with Concordia the next week. The "Panthers" suffered almost as severely as the "Vikings" had, the score being I2- o in favor of the "Cowhands." The Herington "Railroaders" were beaten by Abilene's eleven by a score of I4-6 on the "Cow- boys' " home field. October I3 proved to be unlucky for the Ells- worth team who suffered defeat at the hands of the Abilene warriors. The "Cowboys" won by the narrow margin of I3-I2, which was their first close game. Abilene then met the Clay Center "Tigers", who had been undefeated for two seasons, and from them the "Hands" 'won their second non-league game, 7-0. The "Cowboys" then suffered their first defeat. The junction City "Blue -lays," on their own field, took the non-league game by a score of 7-13. I Abilene's first league defeat came the following week when the McPherson "Bulldogs" won from the "Cowhands" by a score of I2-IQ. The "Cowboys" recovered from their slump and defeated the Chapman "Irish" in the traditional Armistice Day battle by a one goal margin, 6-0. Abilene suffered its second non-league defeat at the hands of the "Cadets" when they journeyed to Hays a few days before the final game of the season with Salina. The score was 6-0. The "Cowboys"' second and last defeat came when the Salina "Maroons" downed them I9-o. This was the worst defeat of the season and was the one which gave Herington first place in the league. With twelve of the eighteen lettermen returning, Abilene should make a good showing again next year. Those coming back next year are: W. Akers, D. Burnett, H. Bell, C. Black, D. Chaves, E. Carroll, L. Franklin, R. Garten, B. Gibbs, P. Huston, R. Mc- Millan, and V. Townsend. I. Ayers, H. Lewis, C. Rutz, I. Schiller, and W. VVhite graduate this spring, leaving their places to be filled by the returning lettermen and those who made up the second team this year. Leroy Franklin played in guard position and was fast in getting down the field to cover punts. Ray Garten was a good half and also played a good brand of football at end. Leroy Harper started at guard and played a good game until he was forced out on account of an in- Jury. "Pat" Huston at tackle was always ready to do his best in opening holes or holding the opposing team. "Bud" McMillan played his position at guard very nicely and was ready to stop any thrust made by his opponents. Herman Lewis at end was fast and reliable. He was good at breaking up opponents' passes also. Ivan Schiller was a reliable tackle and readily responded to the appeal to "hold that line." "Vass" Townsend was on the receiving end of many passes and was responsible for stopping many end runs. , Clarence Rutz held down center throughout the season and was always reliable. I K Wilbur White at quarterback was fast and- quick thinking. When there were no holes opened he generally made one. Y Q "Walt', Akers played his first season on the first team this year and played his position at guard very well. john Ayers was goodon the receiving endluof passes while playing end, and also did some nice work in the backfield. "Herb" Bell held down the fullback position dur- ing the latter part of the season and didia-good-job of punting. fContinued on Page 29, First Columnj l Basketball TOP ROW Cleft to rightj-Hawkes, Gibbs, Black, Rutz, D.

HE OPENING OF basketball season saw the "Cowboys'l take the floor with three letter- men back: John Ayers, Delbert Chaves, and Dwaine "Buddy,' VVhite, the Abilene colored flash. From the first, Abilene was dcped out to win the C. K L. basketball championship again this year. The "C0whands"' first game of the season was their first defeat. The Sacred Heart "Knights," although only a class B team, defeated the Abilene quintet both at Salina and on the "Cowboys"' home floor, first by a score of 16-40 and in the sec- ond game, 20-39. Tneir first game, however, did not discourage the "Hands" To avenge the defeat they suf- fered in football at the hands of the Salina "Ma- roons," Abilene won a pre-season and two league games from the neighboring team. The score of the pre-season game was 36-26, and others 27-24 and 24-23. McPherson and Abilene met twice, each winning one of the games. The first played at McPher- son was won by the "Bulldogs," 20-22. The second, the "Cowboys" won by the same narrow margin, 30-27. Lindsborg was defeated by the "Cowboys" twice during the season, both times by an almost two to one score. The first game was 32-16, the last 25- 14. The 'fVikings" were the only team which Abi- lene defeated twice by such wide margins. Ellsworth was also defeated by Abilene's quin- tet, twice. The score, however, both times, was closer than with Lindsborg. The first game was 31-26, the second 34-27. The "Cowboys' " first encounter with the Chap- man team was one of defeat, but by the narrow margin of one point, 23-24. Three weeks later, the "Hands" on their own floor took the second game, 36-26. Abilene added two more victories to its list af- ter it had met Herington twice. The first game's score was 16-15, and the last, 36-17. Abilene played a non-league game with Lincoln and one with junction City. The "Cowhands" won from Lincoln 47-20, but were defeated by the "Blue- iayS" 29-34- In the regional tournament, Abilene met and de- feated Ellsworth, 35-19, and Manhattan 39-33. The Salina "Maroons" took the finals through 26-19, giv- ing Abilene second place and a trip to the state tournament. The "Cowboys" met Topeka in the first round of the state tournament and were eliminated, I6-40. ln the consolation, Abilene defeated Chanute, 33- 31, but were defeated again by Salina, the score be- ing 21-23. John Ayers was one of the men who started this season with a letter. john accounted for many of the points made by Abilene, and as a guard, kept the opponents' forwards on the move . "Ed" Amsbaugh was a member of Currier's freshman team last year, and was another good scorer. He held down a forward position during most of this season's games, also turning up where his opponents least expected him. "Herb" Bell, playing forward, did Some nice work in that position. "Herb" is fast and cool- headed and finds the basket when given half a chance. Larry "Dinkl' Curtis did such good work on the freshman squad that he was placed at forward on the first team. f'Dink', was not accustomed to an audience, but kept a cool head and did some good work near the end of the season. Dwaine "Buddy" White was another returning letterman, and considered one of the best guards in the C. K. L. It was "Buddy'l White's job to guard any member of the opposing team who was supposed to be good. He never failed at his post, and the "Cowboys" lose a good player. "Vass" Townsend played at guard, and was a real threat when allowed to shoot, even from mid- court. "Vass" returns next year and will be a marked man in the C. K. L. Clarence Rutz, held down center position on the "Cowhands' " team throughout the season and was one of the best in the C. K. L. Rutz was respon- sible for breaking up many plays of the opponents' and was also good on mid-court shots. His loss will probably be felt as much as any. Next year four of the seven lettermen will re- turn. Rutz and Ayers are lost by graduation this spring, while White will be ineligible. Amsbaugh, Bell, Curtis, and Townsend all return as the foun- E tContinued on Page 29, Second Columnj Football fContinued From Page 275 Basketball CContinued From Page 283 Charles Black at tackle was instrumental in hold- ing the opposing line many times. Charles is one of the heavier players and was stiff opposition when it came to going through the line. Delois Burnett was on hand to stop a11y attempt of the opposing team to go through guard and he played his position well. Eugene Carroll, colored half, was one of the speediest backs in the C. K. L. In a pinch, he near- ly always found a way to gain the necessary yard- age, and was also a good passer. Delbert "Debl' Chaves, during the first of the season. did some nice punting and also accounted for many of the extra points. -Brooks Gibbs at half was a dependable yard- gaiuer and kept a cool head.

H. S., with forty boys reporting for practice at the beginning of the season. With but two weeks' practice the "Cowboy" track- men entered a dual meet at Herington with the "Railroaders" and placed second. The next track meet was also a dual meet held at Clay Center. With a greater amount of practice, the "Cowboys" made a better showing but still rated only second place. A triangular meet followed with the Chapman "Irish" and the McPherson "Bulldogs" at Chap- man. This time Abilene ranked with a higher number of points, but by a close margin Chapman succeeded in winning first with the A. H. S. track- sters second and McPherson third. A week before the Central Kansas League track meet in Salina, Abilene participated in a quadrang- ular track meet at Salina, and placed third with junction City first, Salina second, and McPherson fourth. ln this meet Abilene took only one first which was the 440-yard dash. Monday, May 7, Salina was the host to the C. K. L. track meet from which the "Cowhands" emerged with fifth place. Abilene took two sec- onds: the mile relay and the 440-yard dash, and third in the shot-put, to make a final total of fif- teen points. Abilene will have all but two lettermen back next year, Clarence Rutz and Elmer Hollar. Those who received letters and the events in which they participated are as follows: Amsbaugh, medley relay, Book, half mile relay, Bell, Ioo-yard dash, Burkhardt, mile relay, Curtis, pole vault, javelin, Gibbs, broad jump, relay, Har- per, hurdles, javelin, Hollar, foo, 220, 440-yard dashes, Kauffman, half mile, McMillan, pole vault, Muller, javelin, mile, Nugent, hurdles, mile relay, Parsons, mile relay, half mile, Rutz, shot- put, high jump, mile relay. At the Regional Track Meet in Manhattan, Fri- day, May II, the mile relay team composed of Har- per, Gibbs, Rutz, and Hollar failed to place. Gobf and Tennis For the first time in the history of tl1e school, Abilene placed first in the C. K. L. Golf Tourna- ment held at Abilene, Saturday, April 28, 1934. The 'fCowboy" golfers were Donald Dieter and Fred Gardner. Dieter ranked first while Gardner tied for fifth. This is Dieter's last year in A. H. S., a11d his place will probably be hard to fill next year. In tennis this year, Abilene took part in only one competitive meet, which was the Central Kansas League Tennis Tournament held in Salina, Tues- day, May 8, in which Abilene placed fourth. The singles players were Lyle Fackler and Elmer Hollar. Having had no actual tournament play, they succeeded in winning fourth place as also did the doubles team composed of Dudley Londeen and Donald Makins. Both Fackler and Hollar graduate this year, and it is expected that their shoes will be hard to fill from the ever-increasing number of tennis playing un- derclass men. CUTE KID Two old college chums, Dan and Ilal, met for the first time in many years. Dan was much mar- ried and a family man to boot, as are all family men. He invited Hal, still wearing the smile of a bachelor, out to his house for supper to meet the wife and Junior, his five-year-old offspring. At the house Hal did everything he could to amuse the kid, including giving him his watch to play with. It was while Hal was in one room talk- ing to the missus that Dan came running in from another where he'd been playing with junior and exclaimed, "Gosh, Junior is going to be an auction- eer when he grows up. Ha! Ha! Halu "What makes you think so?" queried Hal. "VVhy, he just put your watch under the ham- merlw PA TO THE RESCUE It seems that a young chap, courting a young girl, was conscious that papa, stuck around a great deal and seemed to have suspicions. Being a nice, frank fellow he, decided to put his cards on the ta- ble. o he said to papa: "Sir, I warn you! One of these evenings I'm going to elope with your daughter." "Young man," replied pa, "step down to the garage with me a minute !', Not a mite abashed, the young chap asked, "Are you going to attempt to thrash me?" "No, indeedli' came back father. "I'm going to give you a ladder!" NO PUBLICITY WANTED joe Schibble, of the Daily Blotz, was excited. You might even say joe was a-twitter. And you could hardly blame him, for he was about to gain an interview withg Vilma Vacuum, Holl.ywood's most glamorous star. Vilma, noted for her si- lence, seldom granted an interview to the lowly press. Small wonder that Ioe's blood pressure ran wild. The drawing-room curtains parted and Vilma, in person, stood before him. "Ah, Miss Vacuum," he greeted her, bowing low, "this is, indeed, a pleasure." 'fPleaSe do not keep me long," commanded Vilma rather severely, "I hate interviews. I wish news- papers would leave me alone." "I'll only be a minute, Miss Vacuumf, replied joe. "I just want a message to your fans for our paperf, "You may tell them," said Vilma, "that I de- spise publicity in any form." "Marvelous l" said joe. "In behalf of our paper, I want to thank you for the story. Goodbye, Miss Vacuum." "Ch, one thing more," Vilma added. "If you put that story in the back of the paper where no- body'll see it, I'll raise the devil, see l" Eddie-He may preach against card playing, but I have nothing but praise for our new minister.
