It is hard to write of Katherine P. Seyfer. Her life
has left an impression upon our hearts that will never be
Those students who have always attended school here
hold a feeling that cannot be expressed in words. A mem-
ory is stirred of a time, back in the second grade, when
they so proudly exhibited the writing on their slates to a
visitor who kindly praised them. Or perhaps, it is the
memory of the sympathetic smile which made them feel
that comradeship was offered them when t'hey were call-
ed upon to speak or read.
On up through the years, they remember the linking
of her name with so many school projects. Perhaps they
knew her personally-perhaps t.hey did not. The feeling
was the same. They knew she was active in civic af-
fairsg they knew she was interested in school problems'
they knew she was interested in them.
For many years she was a faithful member of our
Board of Education. To this often times thankless task
she brought a big heart a trained mind and an under-
standing of the problems of teachers and pupils. Not un-
til the demands of these duties became greater than her
physical strength could endure did she give them over
to another. But such a spirit of hers demanded that she
carry on the work which she loved. She became inter-
ested in the work of the Parent-Teachers Association.
Throughout the remainder of her life she gave a great
portion of her time energy and enthusiasm to this or-
ganization. For here was a work of the sort dear to
'her heart. The one -big intere-st of her life was boys and
girls-how to make them better citizens.
The ideal which she has set before us remains undim-
med by her passing. Here is a challenge to the best in
each of us.

Mrs Seyfer had a wonderful gift in her ability to write poetry. Her last poem
Nocturne appeared ln the December lssue of the Kansas Authors Club Magazine
Mrs Seyfer had felt that this poem would be her last one and lt is a farewell to her
beloved life companion. Following are a number of her best known poems- ' '

The class of '27 has been a very progressive classg a class that has had inspira-
tions and has put them into effect. It achieved great success with the play, "Patty
Makes Things Hum" while in junior high school.
In its Sophomore year, this class contributed a number of regular players to
the football and basket ball teamsg a number of its members were in the opera "The
Bohemian Girl" and the public speaking play. Three of its members represented
the school in the Fine Arts Contest.
This year, the Juniors have had representatives in all athletic and fine arts
contests. The Juniors have given valuable assistance to all of the school entertain-
ments and performances.
The reception given to the Seniors was one of the successes of the year. It
signified the democratic spirit that prevails in our high school.
Vo-operation among the class members under the leadership of Howard Pixley,
president, Fern Snyder, vice-president. Elane Elston. secretary, and Mildred Gassman,
treasurer, the sponsors, Mr. Helgeson, Miss Burt. Miss Ramage and Miss Hill was
the thing that lead the Juniors through a victorious year.

THE ARK LIGHT
Journalistic writing in the Arkansas City High School began in 1915 with a
publication called "The Arkansanf' This booklet was published every six weeks.
Every funny story, every clever poem, every interesting event-all, were saved for
"The Arkansanf' Even with the lnfrequency of publication, it was eagerly read and
greatly enjoyed. There was no Journalism class: instead, the booklet was put out
by the Senior English class.
Nlne years ago,. Mr. J. B. Heffelfinger, Supt. of the Arkansas City schools, con-
ceived another plan for A. C. H. S. which he thought would "take" if it were carried
out. He placed Miss Pauline Sleeth in charge of the project. The plan was for a
school paper. to be published regularly. The first year, the Ark Light was edited
by class sponsors and a student member from each class. The work was done en-
tirely out side of school hours. The next year a Journalism class was formed, the
Ark Light becoming a class project. Since then, it has grown in circulation, quality,
and size, and it has become necessary to solicit advertisements. Business men of the
town have responded generously in supporting the Ark Light in this way. The ex-
penses of publishing the Ark Light are about S1200 .per year. About one-halt of this
is furnished through advertisements. The Newman Dry Goods Co. has advertised
in every lssueg the Home National Bank ranks recond on the list. Many others have,
in this way, assisted the Ark Light- in becoming one of the fixed institutions of our
In nine years, much has been accomplished. The Ark Light has not only be-
come known to local townspeople, but to students all over Kansas. Students of other
schools who have read it among their exchanges have laughed at "Freshman Letters"3
have repeated the advice of "Konduct Katie"g and have enjoyed "Gushing Gertie."
In 1921 the Ark Light won third place in the state contest for high school
papers. In 1926 it won honorable mention for a special project carried out to bene-
fit the whole school. The principal of another high school in Kansas has said,
"The Ark Light is the best paper which comes to us, for it has more interesting and
worth while ideas than, any other paper we receive--college or high school.".
Journalism has become a fascinating study for hard-working students. Chosen
members of the class have represented the Ark Light at five out of seven annual
high school newspaper conferences held at Lawrence.
In the last two years, several new plans for advancement have been carried
out. A free pre-enrollment issue has been sent out to all prospective students. This
has meant an unusual amount of work for Miss Sleeth, the sponsor, and for the few
students who have helped her. The class has edited the Traveler one day each year.
Last year, it 4publlshed one issue of "Newman News." The class published short
story bookls last year. These stories show real ability on the part of students.
Prominent educators in the state have praised the book highly.
Many of those pupils who began with the Ark Light have taken up journalism
as a profession and are succeeding in their work on larger papers. Frank Clough
has reported for the Kansas City Star and now has a responsible position -with the
Emporia Gazette. This year, Dwight King was pledged by the national honorary
journalistic fraternity, Sigma Delta Chi at K. S. A. C. Several high school journalism
students have reported for ,the Traveler. Among them are Dean Nichols, Blanche
Allen, Dorothea iTaylorJ Martin, Mabel Bowman, Vernon Smith, Katherine Mans and
' . The Journalism class this year has been the largest in the history of the de-
partment. This class includes some promising journalists who deserve much credit
for the excellent paper they have published. Miss Sleeth has devoted much time and
energy to making The Ark Light a great success.

ln digging among debate
records, in searching out the history of our other
departments, it is to be found that A. C. li. S. has nothing to be ashamed ol' and has
much to be proud of.
The greatest, incentive to
societies, the Cavaliers and the
do one's best is a spirit of rivalry. ln 1905 two rival
Argonauts, were formed. In the following years great.
competition existed between these two clubs.
These clubs existed for about seven yearsg then they gave way to one debate
Since that time A. C'. H.
Arkansas Pity debate team won
torioutsg in 1921-22 we won the
year we won second place with
solved and several dual debates
This year a debate squad
S. has held her share of the honors. In 1919-20 the
state championship. In 1920-21 our team was all vic-
championship of the Ark Valley League and the next
19 out of 24 decisions. Last year the League was dis-
of twelve was chosen. This was organized into teams
and each team was prepared to enter any debate. In this way keener competition
was involved. more material was secured, and a formation of next year's debate stu-
dents was begun. Members of the squad were: Opal Agnew, Eddie Castle, Tracy
English, Frances O'Dowd Garland Russell, Landon Mathews. May Kittrell, Izola Mann,
Wilbur Shoup, Russell Piper, Lydia Pannell and Gordon Newton.
The question this year was "Resolved: that the Proposed 20th Amendment to
the Constitution Shall be Adopted." Izola Mann and May Kittrell for the affirma-
tive and Eddie Castle and Frances O'Dowd for the negative, represented tl1e school.
This team won the southern half of the Ark Valley League but lost to Hutchinson in
the final debate for league championship.
A. C. H.S. has always distinguished herself in oratorical contests. This year
Russell Piper represented us in the Ark Valley Oratorical Contest at Kingman, win-
ning second place. Ile, also, won second place at the Southwestern Invitation Uontest
EXTEMPORANEOUS SPEAK ING
Extemporaneous Speaking this year was handled in a slightly different man-
ner than ever before. The Public Speaking class and Junior English classes took up
the work. They were given twelve magazines from which they were to be prepared
on any of twenty-four topics. Fern Snyder and Eddie Castle were chosen to repre-
sent the school in the contest at Newton. They made a good showing against. stiff
competition. Eddie Vastle placed third.

The Y. W. C. A. was organized in the Arkansas City High School in 1912,
through 'the efforts of Miss Eula Sleeth. The first Y. W. C..A. presidentjwas Miss '
Verna Walker. The sponsors the first year were Miss Luclle Johnson and Miss, Helen
Brock Know Mrs. George Probst.J
fl During the first few years, the organization did excellent work without any
sr- help from the members of the faculty. r
To meet expenses, the girls gave food sales, bazaars at Christmas, had "dollar
X days" and candy sales. This furn-isbed money for the treasury as well as enjoyment
for all who did active service.
The social events of the Y. W. C.. A. have been varied during these years. The
I9 kid parties, backward parties. teas, chocolates, hikes, picnics, .parties for junior
hlgh school girls, and Mother and Daughter banquets have given great pleasure to all.
The girls have always been active in social service work. They not only got 'X'
enjoyment themselves, but many times made others happy as well. They did this Q 3
by sending Christmas boxes to Mission schools, giving post card showers for children
in India, giving parties for children in Arkansas City, and sending flowers to the sick.

The work in Saint Pau1's time was first studiedg his life and its influences
were taken up. The three Missionary Journeys of Saint Paul were, also, studied in
detail. The personality and service of Paul was the last division of the work.

The Music Departments of the Arkansas City High School and Junior College
V presented the opera, "H, M. S. Plnafore" by Gilbert Sz Sullivan in the High School Q
,Q Auditorium, March 11 and 12. - sr'
1' - "Her Majesty's Ship, Plnafore" was written by W. S. Gilbert and composed by LQ
ff 'Q Su' Arthur Sullivan. It was first presented May 28, 1878, at the 0pera.'.Comlque., and
fy ran for seven hundred nights with an enthusiasm probably never beforeedualled.
if This is probably the most popular o-f all Gilbert-Sullivan operas. It has met with
,lf wg enormous success not only at home but abroad. Its satire is keen but friendly: and Y
.rj in music as in text, it is gay and amusing. . '
Among the most popular numbers are the recurring choruses "We Sail the xC7l
Ocean Blue" and "Our Saucy Ship'-s a Beauty," the song "I Am Called Little Butter- f ,,
X cup," Josephine's "Sorry Her Lot Who Loves Too Well," Sir Joseph's "I Am the Mon- '
. arch of the Sea" and "When I Was a Lad I Served a Term," the trio "A British Tar is ' 5
a Soaring Soul,"Corcoran's "Song to the Moon," the duet between the captain and cj
Little Buttercup "Things Are Seldom What They Seem," Dick Deadeye's "The Merry
Maiden and the Tar," the octette "Farewell My Own," and Buttercup's recountal "A
Many Years Ago." -
Our performance involved more than a hundred students, which included the I
i boys' and girls' glee clubs of both college and high school, and the class A orchestra.
It was a decided success: excellent work was done on the part of the cast ln both
singing and acting, and the choruses did equally as well giving the performance a
, . professional atmosphere. 4
The orchestra was composed of students only. This really is remarkable, due '
milf to the difficult music associated with an opera of this caliber. The orchestra gave the V .41
Vi performance its necessary support in accompaniment. The dances, as everyo-ne says, -if
were beautiful and most appropriate for the opera. Z .fi
113 ' The opera was directed and staged by Howard Feldmanri, director of music ,3
E3 in the Arkansas City Public Schools. He was most ably assisted by Mr. A. E. San 1 'li
.1 A Romani, who taught the orchestra the accompanimentg Miss Edith Davis, who so 9 A .
jr willingly and capably gave her services in the direction of the danceg Miss Phyllis Q 3
fl I Burt, who gave her time and effort in designing the costumes: and Mr. Carl Hol- 5 ,

' SENIGR CLASS PLAY
"ln summer time when roses bloom, a young man's fancy lightly turns to
thoughts ot' love." Such is the theme of Tarkington's drama, "Seventeen" which was
presented in the .Junior High School Auditorium, April 22 and 23, as the annual senior
play. It is a play ot' youth, and love, and summertime, A play of romance. pathos
and little sister. A play of trials ot' one who is too old to be a child and too young
to he a man. Seventeen! Does it not recall memories of days of youth, and will it
not always bring back memories of the happy days we spent together while we were
The play was one of the most enjoyable productions ever staged in Arkansas
City High School. Beauty. grace and excellent acting were characteristics of the
performance. The seniors feel that they set a mark which will he hard to surpass in
their presentation of "Seventeen,"
One entire set of scenery was constructed for the production by high school
boys under the direction of Henry Shilling, ,stage manager. Howard Pixley. a junior,
assisted with the lighting effects. Harper Lyons had charge of the advertising, and
Leland Davenport acted as business manager.
The combination ot' Booth Tarkington's art, Miss Hea,ton's directing, the im-
mortal" canst. and the stage settings, make tl1e seniors ot' this year feel secure in
their belief that "Seventeen" was "the best ever."

August 31, 1925, a week before the opening of school, thirty some boys re-
ported to football camp which was located at Wild Cat Canyon. The purpose of the
camp was to teach the fundamentals of football and to get the squad in condition.
Coach Curry had only two letter men, Captain Wise and Chandler, around
which to build his team, but there was plenty of raw material from which real
gridiron heroes could be made. Among these were Mills, Rarick and Harwell
from Junior High and some from last years squad who were out determined to make
a letter. Howell, a letter man, came to us from Columbus, Ohio.
We lost the first game of the season to Ohilocco. by a 28-0 score. but this did
not dishearten us because it was considered as only a scrimmage.
Loose playing in the first t-wo minutes of the game the following week ac-
counted for Ponca Clty's lone touch down, but it defeated us 6-0.
We then went to Wichita for the first league game. and with the breaks going
their way, we were defeated again 6-0. It was in this game that "Red" Howell heard
the "birdies" sing.
After three straight defeats, we downed Augusta 10-2 on our own gridiron.
One week later, Pratt. was tackled on our home field, which was a sea of mud,
and they were defeated 19-0. This made prospects look brighter for A. C.
Hutchinson was the next victim of our attack, losing to us by a 6-0 score. Fry
was out of the game with a sprained ankle. Hutchinson presented a much heavier
team than oursg but nevertheless A. C. won the game.
El Dorado came to town. With listless playing in the first three quarters,
El Dorado gobbled up a fumlble and raced for a touchdown-the lone score of the
game. In the last period, Arkansas City presented a real fighting spirit which,
if it had been aroused earlier in the game, would have made a difficult story to tell.
Determined to make up for its previous downfall, the team took Newkirk to a
cleaning, defeating them 37-0, the largest score of the season.
On Armistice day at Wellington, a bitterly fought battle resulted in a 57-7 -tle.
The game did not lack thrills. Wellington made a touchdown which didn't count.
Bill Mills got knocked out. "Stew" Fry and "Snowball" Johnson couldn't get along
together. ' '
Thanksgiving Day was an ideal day for a football battle. A great crowd of
rooters gathered to see A. C. take on Marion. Ark. City played her best game of
the year giving the spectators many thrills. Although A. C. excelled in every phase
of the game, Marion defeated us when in the last quarter, Pierce of -Marion, with
his left toe, drop-kicked the winning goal. Harwell received a fractured leg in the
second quarter. His fighting spirit was missed in the remainder of the game.
The football season as a whole was unusually successful considering that
Coach Curry had only two letter men as a nucleus for his team. He developed a team
which fought like veterans to the last minute of play during the entire' season. From
a group of raw material, Curry ironed out a football team which worked together
with clocklike precision when the season got in full sway. Curry is to be C0mmend-
ed. for his success in producing an almost entirely new teaxm. When the cleats are
donned next year, Curry should not have to worry about material as there will be
about eight letter men back and some material from Junior High. '
Records show that Arkansas City has always turned out good football teams.
In 1908-09 Coach Schmidt developed a team which lost only three games in two years.
In 1910 A. C. tallied seven victories, six of which were shut-outs.
A. C. was champion of southern Kansas and northern Oklahoma in 1911, win-
ning nine out of ten games played. ,
The team of 1912 scored six shut-outs and lost but two games.
ln 1914, A. C. never lost a game. In that year, however, A. C. lost Coach
Schmidt, and the opponents began to come through the line. It was left for Coach
Curry, who arrived ln 1923, to build up a team. With the familiar stars, Weller,
Wilson, Houston and others, Curry gave A. C. a team which lost no games. and only
nine ,points were scored against them.
1924 brought many injuries, and more defeats than victories.
Coach William Gough, J. L. Robinson, Francis Schmidt, Ivan Trusler, Roy
Williams, Ernest Uhrlaub, and Amos Curry have all helped to make.excellent
records for'A. C. H. S. Some of the former athletic directors are succeeding in
similar work in Universities and other schools today.

Banks landed a berth on
the All-Ark Valley team
this year. He is a hard
fighter, instills the spirlt

"Lew" started the sea-
son at forward but was

he gave a good account

cool game -and was, al-
so, a good scoring guard.
HAYWOOD HACKLEY- RICHARD LAYNE-
"Haddie" was a valuable
asset to the teamg he
nearly always got the
tip, and was one of the
main scoring cogs of the
team. His height under
the basket gave him the
advantage to score. He
will be back next year.
"Dick" ran true to form
and tied for first place
for scoring honors in
the league. His excel-
lent work under the bas-
ket, continually baffled
the imposing guards.
There. is no reason why
he should not make the
All-Valley team next
"Stew" was one of the
hardest players in the
league. Although in
some games he did not
hit consistently, his
fighting spirit and team
work were missed the
moment he left the
game. He will be in the
game again next year.
Athletic Director Uhr-
laub rapidly moulded a
basket ball team which
we were proud of. Ty-
ing for second place in
the Ark Valley league
was no small honor as
it is the highest achieve-
ment any A. C. team has
ever made. "Dutch,"
through his years of ex-
perience and coaching,
knows how to handle
material to secure the
best combination. His
track teams have always
brought home many
cups. He coached the
junior high football
team this year, and the
boys received valuable
instruction and exper-
ience. Coach Uhrlaub is
not only an asset no ath-
letics in the high school
but to Arkansas City as
"Hoss" knew his bu-s-
iness at guard and was
no-t easily "sllcked.f' He
brought the ball down.
fast on offense and
broke up many passes
on defense. He was sick
the latter part of the
season., but he should
be out next year to make
the all-Valley team.
Prospects were indeed bright for a winning basket ball team when the first
cull for basket shooter.s was answered. Coach Uhrlaub had a team of letter men back
besides 't world of other material. '
In the first pre-season game with Chilocco the Arks showed mid-season form
-md scalped the Indians 46-30. A
In another pre-season game with Co-ffeyville the team did not show as good
form as in the first game but had little difficulty in defeating them 48-19. A
We opened the Ark Valley League season with a win-defeating Wellington
.lb-18 on their home court. - 1
The next night at home our boys were overcome 36-15 by Newtons excellent
driving and passing machine. .
The next game was with our old rival Winfield on the large Southwestern
court. The score see-sawed back and forth, but Smith and Hackley dropped in baskets
and when the gun went off A. C. came out on the long end of a 32-28 score.
We trod all over Hutchinson in the next game by the large score of 45-20.
The next Friday, El Dorado presented a flashy team. "The Purpleand the Gold"
led by only three points at the half, but came back strong in the second half to de-
feat their rivals 37-22.
The Arks, at Wichita the next night, showed that their fo-rmer game had ex-
hausted them, and Wichita ran away in the last half to win 33-19.
A. C. took Wellington to another cleaning on our court defeating them 50-21.
A. C.'s hopes of defeating Newton were blasted when the Railroaders defeated

us at Newton 34-10.
The next night at Hutchinson, we fared better and came out on the large end
of a 21-13 score. A
Winfield came down determined to defeat A. C. They gave the"Arks a battle
royal, and it took some hard fighting t.o clinch the game which finally :ended,.44-35
in our favor.
Our boyis were tired the next night at Kingman. Only in the last .few minutes
of the game did they pull out of the fire, winning by the close score of1.21-19.
A. C. played her best game of the year against Wichita here. The Arks were
superior in height and speed, and Wichita found herself at the small end of a 43-23 score.
The team missed a chance to clinch second place in the league by letting
El Dorado beat them 27-21 the next night. V
A. C. finally found her stride in the last game of the season with Kingman
and overwhelmed them 42-17. g V .,
The team fini-shed with an enviable record. They defeated Winfield 1wice,.in
one season which is the second time in the history of the school that this has been
accomplished. They tied for second place in the Ark Valley League, which fs the
highest record an Arkansas City team has ever made. Only one game was 'lbstcon
the home court. and that to Newton. The successful year for the'team was- due to
its untiring fighting spirit, good team work, and the coaching of Coach Uhrlaubf' '
A. C. did not participate in' the state tournament this year- because sojnany
players were ill with, the influenza. This is the first time'we have missed-'entering
the tournament for many years. I ' Y V '
Instead of second team games, an intra-mural basket ball league was- estab-
lished. Each room adopted the name of some Missouri Valley college. Intense in-
terest was shown in these gamesg some were close and exciting. Valuable training
was received by those who participated, and it should help develop better material for
future high school teams.
"Oklahoma U" won the cup.
A. C. I-I. S. has always had a fighting basket ball team. The first team with
scheduled games was in 1908. They lost two games to Winfield, tied one with Ponca
City and won one from St. Johns.
In 1909 Wichita was defeated twice, and Winfield for the first time.
A. C. had no basket ball coach in 1910.
In 1911. A. C. went to the semi-finals at Lawrence, won three out of four games
played with Winfield.
In 1913 Arkansas City was admitted to the Arkansas Valley League. A. C. won
but one game that year and that was from Kingman. 1914 found A. C. fourth in the
league. A. C. made a good showing at the state tournament in 1917. ,
A. C. won the state championship in 1918 after a slump in the league.

Golf was another new Ark Valley League sport in which A, CY was well rep-
resented. The golf team, composed ot' Richard WVilkins, Clenton Christy, Dick Metz,
and Jolm Ranney, represented A. C. at the fall golf tournament at Hutchinson. The
tournament was stopped on account ot' had weather, but Dick Metz wus low medalist.
The Wichita golf tournament wus held on May T. We were represented by John
Rzmney, Richard Wilkins, Dick Metz, and Harry May. The weather again was un-
suitable for golf, but Dick Metz was low medalist for the tourney. Wichita won first
and A. C. took second. This was :1 fine showing. Next year, we expect to do het-
ter in golf we only lose two golfers. John Runney and Richatrcl Wilkens, hy grad-
