A member of the 1932 team. Parnell Mahoney, won a national championship in extemporaneous speaking, while the team itself took third in the National Speech Tourna- ment, which was held at East High. The 1940 team captured second in the national tournament. Indi- vidual state championships have been won by Par- nell Mahoney Q19311 and Bruce Hughes 119431 in Extempore Speaking, and by Pat Betsworth Q19421 in Original Oratory. ln 1949 the debate team, having ranked second in the state. won the four-state N.F.L. district meet. Outstanding orator of recent years was Bill Kruse, Class of 1949, who topped district and state in both American Legion and Knights of Pythias contests and won the coveted Eastern trip awarded by the WNAX High School Forum. Outstanding coaches included John Schmidt. 1929-1938, C. W. Edney, 1938-1944, and Gwen Thompson, 1944 to the present. Slucfenld, .fike people, Feature of the early years at East High School were four sets of brother and sister clubs which were organized in January, 1925. The girls' organizations were Aeolian, Anungan, Alethian and Tokato: the respective boys' group were Pi-Sko, Maishu, Delta- mathian,and Viri Crastini. Every student who had earned twelve credits could belong. Merits were given for scholarship, attitude and achievement. Each se- mester a cup was awarded to the club having the 1 John Schmidt Mau' 0 highest number ot merits. Groups specializing in art, dramatics and languages organized and reorganized as interest fluctuated. At one time or another, clubs devoted to archery, acro- batics, current problems, and literature existed. Orpheon, organized in 1929, is the oldest club with a continuous record. Hi-Y and Hi Tri were organized in 1927, but they are not under the jurisdiction of the school. E r. 11 fi

sawn ew. ew Jligh naw Maze. Hal Buntley Wow! Muna Zasedlal "Pickles" and "Pinafore" were among the many operettas presented by East I-Ii.gh's vocal music depart- ment. Besides furnishing superb entertainment for the community, these productions helped finance trips. choir robes, and music. The first girls' glee club totaled fewer than twenty members, but by 1930 there were ninety-five singers in it. The boys' glee club that same year had thirty-one participants. An A Capella Chorus was organized in 1931, the mem- bers being chosen from the glee clubs. This enabled the department to select a larger variety of music every year. In the days when East High students participated in music contests. both groups and solo- ists received many superior ratings. amaze., ma.: eww Mr. Buntley might well be called the father of East High's music department, for he organized all the large groups except the orchestra and at one time directed all the school's music activities. He taught at East High from 1926 to 1945. Instrumental di- rectors succeeding Mr. Buntley were Douglas Reeder. Frank Van Der Maten, and Dale Caris. Since Mr. Buntley became Music Supervisor, the vocal music has been directed by C. V. Thomas and later by G. W. Iseminger. Elaborate productions, including several Gilbert and Sullivan Operettas, were features of Mr. Buntley's years at East High. 4 'Moy Kap! ' First musical organization at East High School was the 10-piece orchestra organized by Mr. Cobb in 1925. Throughout the school's history, the orch- estra has played an important role at all school func- tions. The present 55-piece orchestra displays the same enthusiasm for good music which prompted the original handful of musicians to organize. In response to student entreaties, a marching band of 34 members was organized in 1930. With the aid of the Morningside Commercial Club and various other civic groups, the cape-style uniform which was then in vogue was purchased. The whole community is proud of the present band, which has more than 100 members. H. M. S. PINAFORE was presented by the music department in 1938

n1fAe4zele4,0nlAe6?laa4 LES DAVIS lead 0 ' eaacfa The history of East High. School athletics is closely tied up with the career of Leslie H. Davis, who was coach of football and track for nineteen years and of basketball for twelve years. Associates of Coach Davis testify that his influence on the character of boys whom he coached was as remarkable as the proficiency which they developed in sports.. Davis- coached football teams of 1927-1946 averaged seven wins against two losses each season. Basketball teams of 1927-1939 had a season average of seventeen wins against three losses. Coach Davis made the un- usual record of winning four state cchampionships in three sports while coaching at East High. The foot- ball teams of 1938 and 1939 were undefeated and STATE BASKETBALL CHAMPIONS H9341 generally considered winners of the mythical cham- pionship of Iowa. East cagers, having played in the state tournament six years out of twelve, captured the championship in 1934. The track team won the state meet in 1945. ,4Mktac'7eam4'7' Keenest rivals of the Black Raiders are the Little Maroons of Central High- School. Football games between the two had ended in ten Central victories before East tumed the tables 6-0 in 1936. Since then, there have been six victories for East, six for Central and one tie. In basketball the Raiders were first able to defeat Central in 1927 by a score of 15-9. Usually cagers of the cross-town rivals meet three times a season. Until 1949-50, the winner of the East-Central games took the city title, with seven football and eleven basketball championships going to East High. For seven straight years, 1929-1935. East kept the basketball crown. The two schools have shared the city title once in football and once in basketball. Since 1937 when East joined the Missouri Valley Conference, of which it is the smallest member school, the Raiders have won or shared the title five times in football, but have never annexed a basketball or track championship. Highest honors won by East High athletic teams are the four state championships: football, 1938 and 1939, basketball, 1934, and track, 1945.
