Reviewing the events of twenty-five years in eight
pages is a tremendous task. The staff realizes that
there may be inaccuracies and omissions. It has been
impossible to mention all the outstanding figures and
events in East High's history: the objective was to
hit the highlights. Though most space has been de-
voted to activities, class work has always been of
such high caliber that to praise outstanding teachers
would require all the pages allotted to history.
The generation of students that has passed through
the corridors and classrooms of East High School has
made its presence felt in Morningside and wherever
the 4600 alumni have scattered. Much of their am-
bition, loyalty. and civic responsibility can be traced
to the influence of this school.
Through th-e years there has grown up at East
High a traditional school spirit which has kept stu-
dent morale high even under disappointment and
defeat. Strong community support has promoted this
attitude: truly outstanding leadership among both
faculty and students has contributed. Students con-
stantly display enthusiasm for their school work as
well as for the many extra-curricular activities. The
fact that East High has won more than its share of
honors is the result of this remarkable school spirit.
Building on the traditions of the past, East High looks
to the future with high hopes, "As our banners go

The Tomahawk and Arrow will be celebrating
their twenty-fifth anniversaries in two years. There
has been much rivalry between these publications.
and each year they prove to each other that' "The
pen is mightier than the sword."
The name Arrow was chosen by the student body.
Like Tomahawk, it harmonized with the Indian
motif then used by East High School. The original
plan was to use as a theme each year some country
where arrows had been employed. After American
Indian, Medieval, Viking, Egyptian, and Roman
annuals this custom was abandoned. During the de-
pression years C1933-1938 inclusivej no annuals
were published. Instead, a "Senior Edition" of the
Tomahawk was issued. It was similar to the East
Junior "A" Booster.
In 1948 the Tomahawk introduced a new system
of getting subscribers. Printing prices had reached an
all-time high: therefore subscribing for the Toma-
hawk became compulsory. However, the Arrow still
runs on a voluntary basis.
The tenure record for Tomahawk advisers is held
by Miss Hulda Kreutz, now serving her seventh year
in that capacity. She formerly advised seven annual
staffs. Mr. Lowell Schroeder holds the record, eight
I years, for Arrow advisers.
The Student Council, formerly called the Senate.
has played an important part in East I-Iigh's social
and academic life. Each year the council tries to find
a particular project in addition to its traditional
duties. The school party is a semi-annual affair.
while the student directories are published whenever
there is need. The war bonds purchased in 1942
and 1943 will be put to some good use when they
mature. One year the council bought new flags for
the classrooms. Final payments on the school flag
were made in 1948.
In September of 1948 plans for the cyclorama
fund began. Previous to this, talent assemblies had
been given to obtain money for various school needs.
but with this momentous task ahead all minor proj-
ects were dropped and the whole school concentrated
on eaming money for payment on the cyclorama.
This is the biggest and probably the most appreciated
undertaking the Student Council has ever attempted.

Mrs. Flora Davenport, East High's first dean. did
much for the school. She was acting principal for a
year and a half, then was dean until 1930, when Miss
Katherine Mourning took her place. Mrs. Davenport
still lives in Sioux City and maintains an active
interest in "her" school. Miss Mourning was relieved
in 1932 by Miss Alice Mower, who was dean until
1937. Both Miss Mouming and Miss Mower are
deceased. East High's next dean, Miss Lorraine Pow-
ers, stayed until Miss Hoyt, our present dean of girls.
arrived in September of 1941. In 1946, Mr. Milton
S. Delzell was appointed dean of boys, in which
position he still serves.
