For our record of a year at East High School we focus on one small stage of that world as we present "The Troian Story." This drama has its humor and its tragedy, its rising action and audience applause. We've had fun living our high school roles, we hope our readers, too, will have fun as our actors and scenes pass in review on these pages.

Q "I Want to Be Happy" sang the 'Finale chorus as they concluded another memor- able performance. In the beginning . . . 3 Just as actors experience a few moments of stage fright, so did more than four hundred sophomores on the day school opened this fall. Feeling a bit bewildered by the unfamiliar surround- ings, but still enthusiastic, they faced the year with anticipation. ln the same way the stage crew builds a firm foundation for the more spectacular performance to follow, sophomores need to build a strong background for the years ahead. In this section we present sophomores, faculty and fall ac- tivities. 2 E Q - Z1 5 4 5 Y 5 1 4 3 7 Your Guide to East High, a booklet planned by the orientation committee and printed by the print shop for the sophomores, contains helpful informa- tion about the building, scheduling and activities. A. Holdiman studies her copy to be in-the-know on life at East. In our world history classes, we gain a better understanding of the world today by studying the ancient civilizations. L. Andreassen, M. Venter, J. Wylaorny and A. Baker combine their notes and ideas to present an interesting and informative panel discussion. Neatness and accuracy are the requirements of ci good draftsman. B. Jenney concentrates on trans- ferring a measurement from the book to a plate. Sophomores gain practice in reading, writing, speaking and listening activities in English classes. ihe varied program includes getting acquainted with the facilities of the East High library. One of the most important features was the card catalog. R. Potter, L. Miller, M. Venter and J. Wyborny are shown taking advantage of their newly acquired knowledge. Spanish classes not only learn the language but also receive a knowledge of foreign culture. Ad- miring the Mexican souvenirs and studying the Spanish books are S. Ferch, K. Sheeley, G. Case, A. Baker, J. Tovar and B. Denning. :fn-w..':r w1 irs f ,'f'f"" ' w-uQa...s:.1 'V Classes Broaden Understandlngs The main project of the Caesar class was to write and publish a bulletin for the Iowa Junior Classical League. R. Haughton, J. Bingham and J. Armstrong, officers of East's Latin Club, proofread the first copy. Many sophomores take advantage of geometry, an ancient study, which emphasizes reasoning and logical thinking. D. Artus proves one of the theorems on circles while the remainder of the class follow her explanation. By using Alouysius and his two cousins on the chart, E. Cunningham, J. Cherry, D. Granneman, C. Sheridan, J. Eyestone and Betty Clendennen learn more of the complex structure of the human body. Although the main objective of the bookkeeping classes is to practice keeping business records neatly and accurately, the students also learn the basis for filing income tax returns. Here J. Williamson figures how much tax she has to pay. ,srggvfye aresziikii W - ' ..- 2 '.MS!5M3i.iw3Seer5xzfSi Practice Makes Perfect if One of the first things we learn at East High is how to empty the building quickly and safely in case of fire. Chief Ray Tiller and Lt. D. C. Dobson presented an auditorium emphasizing fire prevention, dur- ing which they staged a fire drill to test our time in getting out of the building.

In addition to their regular duties of efficiently maintaining the school, the custodians are always ready to help open jammed lockers or unlock doors for a student to retrieve a lost book. Mrs. Mamie Larson and Mrs. Freda Manahl keep Eastonians who eat in the cafeteria well nourished with the appetizing menus they offer each noon. Very essential to the comforts of students in time of illness or injury is Mrs. Juanita Lininger, the school nurse. Her prompt attention and cheerful encouragement assure students that their health needs are an important consideration. Here nurse Juanita Lininger bandages the finger of student G. Loy, who came to her office for first aid. Early morning arrivals at East are familiar with the daily flag-raising. Promptly at eight o'clock each morning custodian Elton Bly raises the stars and stripes as a symbol of the democracy which provides our free education.

Juniors get an early start with their college plans through the discussion period set up for them to talk over their problems with the visiting counselors. Vice-principal Garlock and East grads Dorothy Dravis and Dick Johnson answer questions about the adiustment between high school and college at an auditorium for prospective college-goers. 25 In preparation for College Day, J. Strohm, B. Walsh and L. Nield thumb through catalogs to get acquainted with the offerings of various schools. Focus on College The third annual College Day ac- tivities featured discussion groups with representatives trom thirteen Iowa colleges. Juniors and seniors had a chance to ask questions about problems that going to college brings. Interested parents came in the even- ing for discussion groups. ln bright new outfits, the orange girls contributed to the success of half- time shows with clever pantomimes and snappy routines. They include S. Musgrave, C. Breckenfelder, D. Musgrave, C. Reints, A. Baker and R. Gautney. MARCHING BAND ln keeping with "What's My Line?", the East High marching band forms a question mark. Playing "Who?", they pay tribute to Jack M. Logan, superintendent of schools. Led by Janice Adams and Sandra Zegarac, drum majors, the band presented half time shows for the home foot- ball games and also took a band trip to Marshalltown, where they presented a show.

A siege of oddities started with the Du- buque game, when a last quarter pass gave Dubuque a 14-14 tie with the Troians, who had led throughout the game. ln the final seconds of the last quarter of the East Des Moines game a pass blocked by two East de- FURGERSON WELCH EHLERS BU RKE fenders fell into the arms of a Scarlet player on the goal line. This touchdown and the extra point gave East a 'l3-'l2 defeat and dimmed the hopes of regaining the conference crown. Homecoming also was the scene of an up- set as the Troians, trailing 16-O, rallied to a 'I9-T8 win over Fort Dodge. MCBRIDE FLOWERS BISHOP GARDNER Bar Wing Powerful Head Coach Lou Breitbach brought an innovation to the for- mer football systems when he introduced the bar wing as the Trojan offense. He developed the forma- tion into a powerful offensive weapon and made East a serious threat for state and city honors. WRIGHT DeBERG ig ee.: it , 1 .

VVi'b11 Varied talents NI Nl Whatever our interests are-music, sports, dramatics or books4 we learn that the drama of our high school days is a success only if we develop our individual talents and learn to appreciate the talents of others. Just as a successful show combines the in- genuity of artists, dancers and musicians working together, so does our cooperation with others in school affairs create memor- able accomplishments. ln this section, we record the events of the iuniors and winter activities. a V1 S ff 2?

After a rather slow start, the Troian cage- sters turned in a remarkable 14-7 record. With only one returning letterman, they were not regarded as much of a threat to regain the conference title, which they lost two years ago, or defend the district and substate titles, which they had held for two consecutive years.

East grapplers completed their third straight undefeated season as they compiled a 10-0-2 record. Romping through a twelve meet season, they amassed a total of 336 points to 109 by opponents. The only blem- ishes on the record were ties with West, 17-17, and Davenport, 19-19. The tie with West tied the two schools for the Big Six Championship. Both meets turned out to be crowd killers as the outcome of each depended on the final match of the night. Under the guidance of Coach Dave Natvig, the Troians took second place in the district WRESTLING SQUAD tournament behind city rival West. In doing so they set a new record by qualifying nine East grapplers for the state tourney. The state tournament provided many thrills as East placed five men and finished third behind state champion West and runner- up Davenport. Two matmen, Danny Carey at 95 pounds and Ronnie Andrews at 120 pounds, won state championships. Other grapplers who placed were Charles Patten, fourth at 127, Dic Manley, fourth at 138, and Bill Wright, third at 165. Front Row: D. Carey, J. Hibben, J. Weston, R. Andrews, D. Mingus, S.
