present "The Troian Story." This drama has its
humor and its tragedy, its rising action and

In the beginning . . .
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-
Your Guide to East High, a booklet planned by
the orientation committee and printed by the print

Sophomores gain practice in reading, writing,
speaking and listening activities in English classes.

the facilities of the East High library. One of the
most important features was the card catalog. R.

also receive a knowledge of foreign culture. Ad-
miring the Mexican souvenirs and studying the

Behind the Scenes
Among the "unsung heroes" at East are the
custodians, cooks and the nurse, who really have
a great deal to do with making our school days
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

stripes as a symbol of the democracy
which provides our free education.

Focus on College
The third annual College Day ac-

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.
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.

Gridsters Provide Tough Competition
The Troian gridmen opened the season
with hopes of retaining the Big Six crown.
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-
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
Homecoming also was the scene of an up-
set as the Troians, trailing 16-O, rallied to a
'I9-T8 win over Fort Dodge.
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

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-

The council, which meets every first and

once a month for a two hour session, has com-
pleted such proiects as stressing cafeteria con-

R. Andrews scores a predicament as he defeats L. Anderson of
Clarion 5-1 for the 120-pound state championship.
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
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.
