THROUGHOUT THE country, picture magazines are
becoming more and more popular with the reading
public. Hence, in this yearbook We have attempted to
stay abreast of the times and present Abilene high
school as it really is, in pictures, rather than in flowery
and involved Writing.
We sincerely hope that by these pictures We have
shown Alma Mater in all its seriousness and at the same
time in its abundance of humor, and We hope that this
book will aid faltering memories throughout the coming
T0 ATHLETICS, the department that is rapidly be-
coming one of the most essential supplements to the
program of education, because of its ability to develop
both mind and body, its training in co-operation and be-
cause of its lessons in sportsmanship, We respectfully
dedicate this yearbook.
Twelfth Year for Gardner
Became Superintendent in I926g Van Osdoi Rounds Out
Five Years A5 Drincipa , Rules With "iron Hand" ibut Students Like It
NCE AGAlN ABILENE high school has added
a successful year to its history. The T937-38
school term was skillfully managed by the
schoolis three authorities: Superintendent F. C. Gard-
ner, Principal M. VV. Van Osdol, and the board of
Mr. Gardner has now served Abilene twelve
years in the superintendency of its schools. From
this, one may judge how well he fills the office.
In glancing backward, some interesting incidents
are found in the superintendent's life.
Shortly after Mr. Gardner had graduated from the
eighth grade, he accepted that wild and woolly ad-
vice, "Go west, young man, go west!" For two years
he was employed on a cattle ranch in Colorado. He
stated, "I have never spent a more interesting or
profitable two years in my life."
After a taste of the west, Mr. Gardner returned to
Emporia to continue his education. There he ac-
quired a high school education at the Roosevelt high
school, Having a desire for more knowledge, Mr.
Gardner enrolled at the Kansas State 'teachers col-
lege of Emporia. The next institution of learning he
attended was the University of Kansas. Still seek-
ing education, the young man went East this time
and his education was given a polishing touch at the
Teachers college of Columbia University.
Principal Marvin VV. Van Osdol sounds rather
lengthy and strange to our ears after we have heard
everyone call him "Van.,' lt's not that we donit re-
spect him that we never speak of him as Principal
Van Osdol. lt's not that at all. It is just because
he's "Van" to us.
By looking at hint, one would guess that Van
was an athletic type of man. And right the guess
would be. He figured in high school athletics, both
basketball and football, at Pretty Prairie, Kansas.
VVhen he had graduated from high school, he decided
to further his education. As a student at the Kansas
State Teachers college of Emporia, he played foot-
ball three years.
Fishing trips are "tops', with the principal. He
has gone a' fishing to Minnesota several times. This
year was Van's fifth anniversary as principal of Abi-
lene high school.
The board of education is made up of six out-
standing men of this community, Howard Keel is
a prominent clothierg E. L. Morse is cashier of the

ITH THF CLOSE of the 1937-38 school year. the
Abilene high school band wound up its twenty-
seconcl year as an organization for the better-
1ne11t of instrumental music in Abilene high school.
The band, under the direction of Earl R. Ray, op-
ened its season very successfully on September 21,
1937, XYl'lC1l a group of sixty-five musicians journeyed
to Hutchinson for the Kansas State Free Fair. The
group was resplendent in their new uniforms consist-
ing of an orange satin jacket with a zipper front and
brown wool patch pockets, On the breast pocket was
the A. H. S. monogram. The rest of the uniform
consisted of white trousers, an overseas cap and an
The band's goal for the year was to be able to at-
tend the National Regional Music Contest which was
to be held in Omaha, Nebraska. ln view of this fact,
the group started earning money early in the season.
On the afternoons of September 28 to October 1, in-
clusive, the band played for the western performances
of the Central Kansas Free Fair. At the end of that
week the coffers were just 375.00 better off,
VVith the arrival of the football season the musical
aggregation was awarded a free trip to Manhattan
for the annual homecoming game at which time they
were privileged to witness a chapter of the eternal
feud between Kansas State college and Oklahoma
During the local football season Professor Ray en-
tertained the fans with a small military band. This
year the leadership of the marching band was in the
hands of llliss Bonnie lllilham who showed excessive
talent in baton twirling.
The Abilene band also entertained many local civic
organizations throughout the year. On October 27,
the band gave a short concert for the Rotary club at
its regular weekly meeting. In addition to this, Mr.
Ray had many small ensembles who played for va-
rious occasions such as Hi-Y, G. R., church organiza-
tions, women's clubs and the men's civic clubs.
The instrumental department gave a public concert'
on March 31. 1938. Included in the program were such
selections as "Heigh Ho" fro111 the picture "Snow
lYhite and the Seven Dwarfs." "Builders of Youth"
which was the required Class "B" contest number for
the National Regional contest, and i'National Vic-
On April 14, Professor Ray took his instrumental
group to Salina where they entered the National Reg-
ional qualifying contest. Upon returning to Abilene,
the group had six of their nine entries eligible for the
national contest. The ratings for those eligible are
as follows: band, highly superior, brass sextet, su-

Thursday afternoons. The mixed chorus met every
Monday. ltednesday and Thursday during the activ-
XYhen the all-school l'ennv Carnival was held the
4 - 4
glee clubs sponsored a fortune-telling liootli, with
l'atricia Townley as general chairman.
Cln Sunday, December Io. the mixed chorus gave
.a concert over radio station Klflsl, featuring six-
teenth century hymns and Christmas carols. Many
directors from other towns gave as their criticism
that the chorus sounded like a professional choir.
Three concerts were given this year: one to the
grade schools on March 243 one to the high school and
junior high, March 253 and a formal concert was giv-
en March 25 for the public.
The chorus journeyed to Salina to participate in
the district music contest on Thursday, April 14, They

IIIC 1937 l70O'l'B.Xl,l. season found the Abilene
high school Cowboys still in the throes of a vie-
tory drouth that began with the opening' of the
1936 season and continued uninterrupted throughout
the past eanipaiggn except for an early season win
over the Linclshorg Swedes. ,Xlthough a dismal tail-
ure in the "win" eolunin, the season will eventually
prove itsell' as a valualmle conditioner lor the under-
elassinen who are expected to develop into one of the
finest grid niaehines ever to represent .Xbilene high
sehool on the gridiron.
The hopes of the Cowlioy fans were given a great

Abilenes bid for faune in the world
the undefeated Junction City Blue Jays. They held
the lays to two touchdowns in the first half, but were
unable to stop Lallis, junction's colored flash, in the
last half. The final gun sounded with Abilene on the
short end of the score, 33 to 0.
lt was a revived Orange and Brown squad that took
the field against the Mcl'herson Bulldogs. Having
been unable to score in previous games, the Hands
showed more puncl1 and aggrcssiveness and stayed
abreast of the Bulldogs until the last quarter when
Holbert, colored half, broke loose for a 95-yard dash
that ended the scoring at 20 to 12.
and from there on made up for lost time by playing a
crashing game from his guard position. A deadly
tackler, he was also a power on offense.
llflerven Neis, halfback-This was the first and last
year that Merven played under the Orange and Brown
colors. He strengthened a doubtful reserve force
and saw considerable action.

'gbrainsu of the Cowboy attack, a leader who at all
tinies could keep his teammates keyed up to a fighting

sound beating. lt was in this game that Tom Har-
ris, sub tackle. received a broken leg and was forced
out for the remainder of the season. The Irish were
Murphy, Tom Harris, Bill Barber, Fred Gans, Don
Vickers, Lester Akers, Prentice Gary, Bob Keast,
lfarl fiardisty, and Robert Akers.

later forced to forfeit this game.
For their last road trip, the Cowboys traveled to
Hays where they tangled with the Hays Cadets on a
snow-covered gridiron. The Cadets were out-played
and out-gained but took advantage of enemy fum-
bles and won, 20 to 7.
The Clay Center Tigers were Thanksgiving Day
guests of the Cowboys in a game that was a finale for
both teams. Determined to bring an unsuccessful
season to a successful close, the Hands out-charged
the Tigers but still lacked the punch that is needed
for counters and succumbed, 13 to 0. This game
wound up the grid careers of six regulars and eight
Virgil Allison, tackle-'f,Pege"
was the bulk of the team in more
ways than one, He took care of
his side of the line in a manly
manner and will leave a big hole
in the line when he graduates.
ior lllurphy, Bill Barber, Lester Akers and .l"rentice
Gary were regulars on the 1937 aggregation which
helps to confirm the belief that within a year the Abi-
lene Cowboys will be a team to be reckoned with
when Central Kansas League laurcls are handed out.
Prentice Cary, colored half, who will be a junior next
year, was one of the Cowboy's main scoring cogs, hav-
ing registered most of the Orange and Brown coun-
ters this season. jim lllachen, Alfred Switzer and
Junior Murphy, three ends, will engage in a battle
royal next fall for the wing positions while the guard
notches will be capably filled by the Akers cousins,
Les and Bob. Oddly enough, one of the hardest-charg-
ing backs on the Abilene squad this year was a fresh-
man, Bill Barber, who is ex-
pected to develop into a first-
class gridder by the time he's a
senior. ,llarl llardisty will prob-
ably take over the pivot duties
in 1938 after understudying
junior linsworth this season.

very interesting parties and meetings.

el before the Lindsborg football game, Mary Cather-
ine Horan as "crystal gazcrl' prophesied the results.
On October 22, the members of G. A, A. were seen

cheerleaders. Out of eight candidates, two girls were
chosen, Treva Herren and Mary A11n Fuller. This year
the G. A. A. girls bought orange and brown sweaters
so that they could sit in a body for a cheering sec-

brown gaberdine slacks and the orange sweaters.
As a rule each year at Christmas time the G. A. A.
girls give a party for the needy children of the grade
schools. This year they decided that they should have
the party just for the members of the organization.

was planned. As each girl entered the gym, she re-
ceived a piece of Hmoneyl' and then went on her way
to shop for a spring hat. The hats were placed at
different "shops" in the gym. After the shopping
trips, all the girls were served cookies and punch, and
later played games.

year went to VVanda Hicks, second award: and twen-

Poll of Senior Class Reveals Many Startling Facts About Potential Careers,

UMMVNISM. that sinister monster
that has ieared its ugly head out of
Russia to strike at nearly every corner
ot' the globe. has finally eaten its way
into Abilene high school where it is un-
dermining, to an unknown degree. the
student body of that institution. Al-
though the only visible sign of "red"
in A. ll. S. is the ink in the bookkeep-
ing department and the only hammers
and sickles are those used by manual

The purpose of the poll, which was
taken exclusively of those who. within

these students how they reasoned and
