The Faculty Club
The Faculty Club is
and junior high school
held the first Tuesday
ficers of the club are:
composed of the Senior
teachers. Meetings are
of every month. Of-
President, Miss Thom-
Miss Coverdillg chair-
man of the program committee, Miss Howeg
chairman of the social committee, Miss
Howard, chairman of
the flower committee,
The club co-operated with other clubs in
giving a series of lectures. These lectures oc-
curred monthly and took the place of many
of the regular meetings.
At a joint meeting of the grade school and
high school clubs, Mr. Brown reported on the
National Educational Association which he
attended in Detroit.
The December meeting' was a social meeting,
a tea, held at the Junior high school.
Faculty Wives Club
The Faculty Wives Club of the Emporia High Schools had its origin in the fall of
1926, largely through the efforts of Mrs. T. S. Trigg, who became its first president.
Its purpose was to furnish opportunities for closer acquaintanceship among the
faculty families. The meetings are monthly during the school year with two or three
guest days when husbands and children participate. Mrs. J. R. Willianis was president
this year. '
A large family picnic at Dryer Park opened the present year's program. Fried
chicken, watermelon and other picnic specialties, were furnished in abundance.
At Christmas time the entire group was again bountifully served at the Mit-XVay
amid beautifully decorated tables and surroundings. Following the dinner a Christmas
party was held in the music room of the Lowther Junior High School.
During the year a royal welcome has been extended to four husky new members of
faculty families, jack South, Jimmie Huckstep, Bobbie Zajic, and Dean Edward Smith.
CHARLES SHARP-His personality makes him a leader, Being a humorist
makes him funny, A swell fellow to have around, He does his bit to

President of Senior Class.
The Senior Class
The Senior Class of 1931 is the largest E. H. S. has ever graduated, numbering two
hundred and fourteen. Not only is it the greatest in size and abundance of knowledge,
but it has developed to the highest degree the art of diffusing the minimum of knowledge
over a maximum of test paper.
In the early autumn, finding it hard to maintain the dignity and stateliness ex-
pected of them, the Seniors donned informal attire and stole away to a secluded spot on
the Cottonwood. There they indulged in childish gaieties, roasting weinies, tossing
stones into the stream, and singlng "Sweet Adeline."
But after several months of continued respect and admiration from the underclass-
men they felt equal to the formality and solemnity of the Senior Banquet, which was
the most successful event of the year.
The sponsors of this illustrious class are: Miss Hancock, chairman, Miss Rodewald,
Miss Sirpless, Miss Jackson, and Mr. Hurt. To them they offer their sincerest thanks

The Junior class of 1931 is a very peppy and active class,
Most of our efforts have been concentrated upon our studies and various organiza-
tions, as many of our members are on the honor roll and in the clubs. Besides being up
in the scholastic life we have also taken part in social events, which everyone enjoyed to
the utmost. In April we had a skating party at which everyone had a most enjoyable
time Qin spite of the many tumblesj. We are looking forward to many more such
pleasures, one of which will be a picnic in the middle of May.
The Athletic Department would have been at a loss had it not been for the number
from our class that took part.
This past year we have looked up to the Senior class with a great deal of admiration
and pride. Through the coming year our class will have to fill their place and our aim
will be not only to equal their commendable work, but by untiring efforts, endeavor to
attain unchallenged honors in academic and social privileges which are at our command.
We wish for the Seniors success in whatever they do.
We sincerely hope that we can be of some assistance to the Sophomores who will be
taking our place next year, and also that they may profit by some of our experiences.
We owe a great deal of appreciation to our sponsors: Mr. Lodle, Miss Shirley, Miss
Howard, Miss Sorensen, Miss Dutton, and Mr. Stout.

The Sophomore class of 1931, composed of 236 members, is one of the largest and
strongest groups in Emporia High.
Representatives from this class have rendered valuable assistance in football, basket-
ball, Girl Reserve, Hi-Y and other high school activities. Many Sophomores will be
found regularly on the honor roll. Much is expected of this class in the coming years.

organize and elect officers.
The following were elected to offices: Helen Roberts,
president, Lois McCain, vice-presidentg and Carl Kowalski,
The class has held one social event and are looking for-

"XVhen we were very young," the pot

a fable quickening the vivid imagination
of our tender years.
Now our seeking of the pot of gold
is an actual effort to complete our high

The "Fountain of Wonders." What an inspiration!
This was the theme chosen as the year's theme by a repre-
sentative group at the Setting Up Conference, which 'was
held early in September at Jensen's cabin. Each month repre-
sents a different spray of the fountain and these ideals are
carried out in varied and interesting programs, The program
committee plans our bi-weekly programs using talent in the
school and varying the type of program as much as possible
so as to interest the many types of girls in Girl Reserve.
At the beginning of each semester the membership com-
mittee assigns the new girls a big sister, who helps her get
acquainted and adapted to the new environment.
The Service and W'orld Fellowship committees serve to
make our organization helpful to the school, community, and
nation. At Thanksgiving and Christmas, baskets were sent
to the poor and a Christmas party was given for the poor
children. Another project of the service committee was to
redecorate the G. R. rest room.
Every organization must have money. This money is
raised by our finance committee which sells candy at the
football games and in the corridors after school. They also
sponsor the annual magazine sale and G. R.-Hi-Y play.
No club can get along without fellowship so our social
committee provides many good times for us. A skating party,
picnic, and a jack and Jill party were some of the parties
sponsored by the social committee.
The publicity committee co-operates with all the other
committees and does our advertising.
The music committee provides music for all occasions.
One of our most valuable sources of knowledge and in-
spiration is gained through conference. Our club was repre-
sented at the Estes Park Conference by: Beth Mott, Peggy
Ballweg, Cornelia Conwell, Eva I.ou DeYoung, Maurine
Knouse, Imogene Shoop, Marguerite Rowland, Alberta Bur-
rell, Mary Jane Finney, and jean Reid.
Those girls who went to Camp Wood are: Maurine
Wagner, Marian Tibbals, Ruth XVinn, Frances Onstad, Gladys
Faye Brill, Dorothy Star, and Katie Louise Young.
The representatives at the Mid-W'inter Conference at
Baldwin were: Beth Mott, Ruth Winn, Marjorie Morse, Beth
Fulton, Mary Kretsinger, Clara Louise Meckel, Margaret
Lewis, Helen Ives, Evelyn Jones, and Ethel Page.

The Emporia High School has entered the Kansas State
Scholarship Contest for many years in the past until last
year when we remained out of it. We are entering again
this year in hope of continuing our previous success.
The plan for the contest this year is somewhat different
than before. Previously the contest has been based upon
twelve subjects and the school winning the most points in
these subjects was winner of the contest. This year the
school having the most points in any subject will receive first
place. A class "A" high school may enter the contest in
twenty-five subjects and not more than fifty pupils. Emporia
High is entering in twenty-five subjects.
The contest is considered beneficial to the students be-
cause it stimulates interest and better work in the class room
and gives them something to work forward to. It also ac-
quaints them with different types of tests. The contest gives
the school and the individual an opportunity to measure their
ability with that of other schools and individuals.
Those entering the contest this year are:
English, 9th Year-Selma Star, Coral Horton.
English, 10th Year-Geraldine Foster, Dorothy Van
Zante. Y Mil
English, 11th Year-Edith Eisenhauer, Clara Louise
English, 12th Year-Edna Scheel, Lois Bellinger.
Algebra IH-Mildred Hoch, George Johnson.

Carr, and John Harvey.
During the year the team has debated with Reading,
Madison, Cottonwood Falls, and Manhattan. The subject
debated upon was "Resolved that the chain store is a detri-
ment to the best interests of the American publicf'
Miss Miller, of our speech department, and Raymond

The Re-Echo staff has worked hard and faithfully in preparing this
book for you, the student body. W'e hope you will keep and enjey it and
may it bring back happy memories of Em-Hi dajs.
On March 12 the annual Re-Echo chapel was held. This was a pre-
view cf the 1931 Re-Ilcho. This clever, pcppy prcgram was written by
our calendar editcr, Margaret Lewis. The many K,I'gLll'llZl1lihl1S, classes, and
activities appeared in characteristic acts. A very unusual character on
the program was a weird looking horse, which represented the athletic de-
partment. The pregrum closed by announcing the Re-lfeho subscription
ceniest. The first place in the contest was taken by Mr. Hurt,s constitu-
tion class under Captain Tom Babinsky. Miss Miller's speech class placed
second with J. D. Petty as captain, The prize for the most paid up sub-
scriptions was awarded to Miss Howard's French class. Ruth Wiiin was
captain cf the French class.
The Re-Echo staff is licking forward to the annual Re-Echo picnic
which is held at the close ef the school year.

The Echo, the Emporia High School Weekly publication, has satisfied
its readers for another school year.
The real worlt cfficially began-after the launching in assembly of the
Echo subscription campaign, and the crganizing of the staff to which
anyone in the school was eligible.
XVith a staff membership cf fifty working industriously in their
spare time, the Weekly edition appeared regularly on Friday and was de-
livered to the subscribers in their sixth hour classes.
November 21 and 22, three staff members and Mr. South, supervisor,
attended the jeurnalism conference at Lawrence sponsored by the Kansas
University Department of Journalism. The representatives, Martha
Schaffner, editor, Otis Smith, sports editor, and Ada Ludy, reporter,
brcught back clever suggestions for the Echo.
The new features of the paper for the past year were the "Echoettes"g
the birthday column, "As NVe Grow Olderng the "Five Year Ago' columng
"Sport Gossip", the jeke column entitled "Stop Me If Youlve Heard This
One", :ind "NWho,d-a-thunk-itf' The new equipment of the department
includes the redimant set for cartoons and stereotype for map making.
Tl ks iving, Christmas, April Fool's Day, and the Seniors were
rized by special editions of the Izcho this year.

"The Haunted House"
A haunted house in which to spend their honeymoon
provided an exciting plot for the football benefit play given
on the night of November 14. Wfeird laughs, shrilling
screams, the rattling of chains, and shots proved very mys-
terious, The play was enjoyed by all who saw it.
"Up in the Air"
The garden of a movie magnate made a beautiful setting
for the operetta, "Up in the Airf' presented on January 29th
by the music department. A clever plot, together with gay
songs and dances, made it one of the best high school pro-
ductions of the year.

On a bright September morning,
We assembled near a mountain,
Near 'a high, steep, rocky mountain,
Many young and eager creaturesg
Gathered there from all directions
To ascend this perilous upland.
Many years from a great distance
We had viewed its rugged grandeur,
Had admired its lofty summit,
And had promised to ourselves
That some day in the future
We would scale this lofty mountain,
And there pluck the gay bright flowers,
Blooming on the soft green slopes,
Now the days of dreaming over
The long hoped-for time was here.
But alas! At close inspection,
What a rough and thorny vision.
Strewn with boulers, bleak, forbidding!
Could we climb it, or would failure
Cause us to turn back disheartened?
Wordlessly we asked each other.
Then the master of the mountain,
Father Brown who ruled the mountains,
And assisted all the climbers,
By his good advice and counsel.
Came to us and said: "My children
Welcome to E. H. S. Mountain,
You will find it is not chi1d's play
To attain this peak so lofty.
But it is well worth the effort.
And you see the worst before you.
Trusted guides will help your climbing,
Guides of wisdom and experience,
Who can safely lead you over
Dangerous chasms, treacherous torrents.
And through thickets sharp and thorny."
These guides, whom we called our sponsors
Gazed upon us and then said:
"Never has a group of climbers
Started to ascend this mountain
Quite so well equipped for scaling
Or presenting such a picture."
Stalwart youths and lovelv maidens
Each one, bearing in his hand
A sturdy staff to use in climbing,
Carved with great care and labor,
From the Lowther Tree of Knowledge.
Hand in hand began our climbing
Bound together by a strong Theye
There could be no thought of failure
In our climbing expedition.
For Lewis and Clark were scouting
And a Bishop kept us treading
On the straight and narrow pathway.
There was no lear of famine
For with us we had a Miller,
Fish and Rice we had among us,
And a Cook and Butler even.
'Gainst colds and coughs we were protected
By Smith Brothers trusty cough drops.
We had Cole to use for fuel,
A Barber too, to keep us trim.
And of course with Ella Early
There could never be DeLay.
And when weary or discouraged,
We might rest beside the Poole
And sweet music by the Shepard
And the Piper might refresh us.
While the blithe and bouncing Brownies,
With their antics made us gay.
Then the guides further admonished
"Choose a leader from your number
Stout of heart and full of valor
Who will bear your standard bravely."
So as captain of this legion,
Was elected brave Chase Wilson
To direct our course, and start us
Toward the summit far aloft.
Then our little band of climbers
Learned of every sage his teachings:
Learned to use the English Language
That a common noun was always
Anything which was not proper.
Learned how Caesar built his bridges
Wishing he had used a boat.
In cooking snatched a crumb of knowledge.
Learned important dates in history
But preferred to make our own.
Math was viewed from every angle
Many found were not so 'cute.
Met Biology and learned there
All the living organisms,
That the lowest form existing
Was the humble Sophomore.
After six weeks of this journey,
Six long weeks with little progress
There appeared a Roll of Honor
Naming all of those whose climbing
Merited especial mention.
Much to our surprise and wonder
Many names were here inscribed
Of our own brave band of climbers
Taking heart from this our climbing
Grew less tedious and less toilsome
Shady nooks and leafy bowers
We discovered here and there,
Where in groups wc could assemble
And forget our work and cares.
In the G. R. Camp and Hi-Y
Many pleasant hours were spent,
Many friendships true and loyal
'Round their cheery fires we formed.
And a source of inspiration we have
Found their glowing lights.
Then one morning slips of paper
Were to every climber handed.
So we sought the upper Classmen
Asked: t'What are these slips of paper?"
And the upper Classmen answered:
" 'Tis a questionnaire you see there.
When great problems vex the nation
Mr. Hurt knows how to solve them
Writes a long. long list of questions
And submits them to our number
Makes of them a blazing bonfire
In the smoke he reads the answer."
And the next September found us
Eager to be climbing higher,
Confident and full of vigor.
Bud McCue was chosen leader.
Bud McCue, tall, dark, and handsome,
With his sunny Irish humor.
Now the service of these climbers
Everywhere was much demanded.
Every undertaking found us
Taking a most active part.
In Band. Orchestra, and Glee Clubs
Some indulged their love of rhythmg
And upon the stage. our acting
Won the priise of everyone,
While on the Echo staff were others
Having talents literary.
Days were filled with work and pleasure
And the time sped all too fast.
Then Charles Sharp was called to lead us,
Clever Charles, a seasoned climber,
Sure to bring us to our goal.
This same year brought us many victories
Many triumphs o'er our rivals.
Now our victories in football
Won this mountain great renown,
For so valiant were our warriors
That all foes were quickly vanquished,
Quickly conquered and subdued.
Captained by the dauntless Waller,
Mighty Davies playing tackle,
Bob Hainline and Philip McCarthy,
Fred Kowalski, "Chuck" McG1inn,
"Jimmie" Kinter, Courtney Lucas,
These brave men with other warriors,
Put to flight our enemies.
And the wee and Winsome Beth Mott
Now was chosen to preside
Over all the G. R. meetings
Over all the Girl Reserves.
On Gene Waller by the Hi-Y
This same honor was bestowed
Safely we have passed all dangers.
Loaded down with many trophies,
Which are tokens of our prowess:
Our superior skill as climbers.
And the tales of our achievement
And the glory of our brave deeds
Shall re-echo down the ages.
As examples for all climbers
Of the future generations.

forever. It is only a memory.
The things we do are here but for
the moment. After that they are
but memories. So our high school

hope you like it.
