Since this is the
versary of the found-
ing of the American
High School, it is very
fitting that this feature
be emphasized in this
Rlcli E. BROXVN
How simple was the plan which resulted in the organization
of the old Boston Latin School in 1635! Boston at that time
was just a handful of rude dwellings huddled about a rhatch
roofed and walled church. A meeting of the men of the hamlet
had been called, in the church, to discuss whatever business was
of common interest. In the course of the meeting it was de-
cided to start a free school. There was no ceremony about it.
They didnit even call upon Governor Winthrop to proclaim
that the people in Boston were establishing something new. It
seemed to them just the natural thing to do in their situation.
Thus, the first American High School was founded for the pur-
pose of teaching Latin and Greek. The instruction in reading
was left with the parents in the homes.
From this simple beginning, the American High School has
grown by leaps and bounds, until today we have 28,000 high
schools, 240,000 teachers, and 6,000,000 boys and girls studying
a great variety of subjects. The high school of today, with its
enriched curriculum, is much different from the old Boston
Latin School, with a curriculum of two subjects: Latin and
Tercentenary Celebration of
the American High School
For some time, the high school
was only a preparatory school for
college, and it was with fear and
trembling that it finally began to
add to its curriculum such subjects
as Manual Arts, Home Economics,
Physical Training, Commercial
Work, Art, Music, etc. All of
these subjects have enriched our
curriculum today, until most em-
ployers will not even consider a
person for a position, who has not
graduated from a high school.
The American High School will
continue to grow in usefulness, its
curriculum will become more en-
riched, with the result that boys
and girls will be better trained to
take their places as the citizens of

THE Emvonm - Rc-60110 1935 - HIGH scHooL 7
When Supt. L. A. Lowther completes his work
at the end of the present school year, he will have
served the Emporia public school system for near-
ly four decades. Superintendent Lowther came
to Emporia as head of the city schools thirty-eight
years ago-in November, 1896. His announce-
ment of retirement this spring, was made because
cf his health.
There was a political atmosphere in Emporia as
well as in the meeting of the school board that
November evening in 1896, Mr. Lowther recalls,
as he was elected on the same night that the news
came in announcing the election of William Mc-
Kinley as President of the United States. And
to the young West Virginia school man, the action
of the Emporia Board of Education was of greater
importance than the result of the voters of the
country. 1 fl
Superintendent Lowther followed John Deit-
rich, who went from Emporia to Colorado Springs
as school superintendent. Coming to Emporia
from Cottonwood Falls, where he had been the
head of the schools and had organized the high
school, Mr. Lowther immediately began a reorgan-
ization of the Emporia school system, and he has
seen it grow from a small beginning to one of the
largest and most efficient in the state.
Looking back 38 years, Supt. Lowther recalls
that James Barnett was principal of the high
school and Miss Mary Maynard was assistant prin-
cipal when he came to Emporia. There were only
125 students in the high school and just six
teachers. Prin. Barnett taught mathematics in
the new "assembly room" which had just been
built on to the old Garfield building, then used
for the high school as well as for Grades 6, 7 and
8 which were housed on the first floor.
No school buildings are standing today which
were here in 1896 except the Riverside school,
then called the Central Avenue. It since has been
moved to another site and has been remodeled.
In 1896 there were eight grade buildings: The
Stone school which stood on the northeast corner
of the present Senior high block and which in
early days was the old State Normal building.
Miss Frances Riggs was principal. Other schools
were the Fourth Ward, Miss Sadie Andrews, prin-
cipalg Union, Miss Margaret Tytherleigh, princi-
pal, Kansas Avenue, H. E. Peach, principal, Third
Ward, Miss Mary Smith, principal, Central Ave-
nuc, T. S. Gallagher, principal, Walnut, Miss
Hannah Bunbury, principal, and West Sixth Ave-
nue, later the Lincoln, Miss Mary McCreary, prin-
cipal. Most of these were two or four-room
frame buildings, heated by stoves and with no
modern conveniences. In the past 38 years all
have given way to modern school buildings of
brick construction. Grade school buildings
erected while Mr. Lowther has been superinten-
dent are Century, Union, Maynard, Walnut, Kan-
sas Avenue and Mary Herbert.
Emporia High School likewise has grown in
great strides since 1896 when a 3-year course was
offered by a faculty of only half a dozen instruc-
tors. W'hen the State University standardized
Kansas high schools, Emporia was modeled after
the university standards, a 4-year course was
offered and more teachers added.

1935 - HIGH SCHOOL
The people of Emporia voted bonds in 1912
for the present Senior high building and it was
erected on the school block just to the north of
the old Garfield building. Completed in 1914,
it was a 4-yearhigh school and with the passing
of the Barnes school law it expanded rapidly.
Rural school graduates were permitted to attend
without paying tuition under the new law and
soon the new school was crowded.
Atthis time the high school course was divided
into Junior and Senior schools. It was necessary
to divide the days-the Senior high classes meet-
ing in the mornings and the Junior high in the
afternoons. This continued for several years until
the present Junior high building was completed
Supt. Lowther has supervised introduction of
many of the present changes in curriculum be-
ginning with a manual training department under
Miss Anna Cron in 1903. Home economics,
commercial training, enlarged playground and
athletic training, art, library and music courses
have kept pace with changing times. High
school principals who served under Mr. Lowther,
following Mr. Barnett, are: F. W. Allin, 1901,
J. H. Sawtell, 1902, W. L. Holtz, 19053 C.
Howard Lyon, 1906, Charles A. Wagner, 19085
S. U. Pett, 1911, R. R. Cook, 1915, and Rice E.

A TRIBUTE TO
This year's Re-Echo will be the last in which
our beloved Superintendent Lowther's picture will
appear as Superintendent of the Emporia schools.
The realization of this fact causes me real sadness.
I have had the privilege of being associated with
Mr. Lowther in three capacities: first, as a high
school student, second, as a teacher, and third,
as a principal.
When a student in Emporia High School, I
always thought of him as a kindly gentleman: a
superintendent who was always fair to the stu-
dents. We all respected him, and regarded him
as an educational leader.
It was as one of his teachers that I learned of
Mr. Lowther's ability as an educational leader.
The Emporia teachers sometimes attended the su-
perintendents' meetings, which were held in Em-
poria. Some of the superintendents talked long
and often. Not so with Mr. Lowther. When
he arose to speak, a hush always came over the
audience, because they knew he had something
worthwhile to say. He would make his point.
and then sit down.
I found that he was always willing to help me
are enrolled in the high schools as compared with
125 in 1896. A like number in the grades brings
Emporia's school attendance to over 3,000.
L. A. Lowther has watched and guided the
constant growth of the Emporia schools all these
years, so that to two or three generations of Em-
poria boys and girls, his name is closely associated
with their memories of school days. His promo-
tion cards, given to pupils when they "passed"
which read: "You have reached another mile-
stone. Accept my congratulations"-are among
the treasured momentoes of thousands of Empor-
ians and former Emporians. He has signed his
name to thousands of diplomas given to E. H. S.
Mr. Lowther attended the University of W'est
Virginia, the University of Kansas where he grad-
uated in 1894, and has studied at Clark Univer-
sity and at the University of Chicago. He is a
member of the state Schoolmasters Club, the Em-
poria Rotary Club, the Current Club, the Masons
in Emporia and is a 32nd degree Scottish Rite
Mason. He was born in Tyler County, West Vir-
ginia where he attended school, worked as an ap-
prentice in a print shop, had a job in a tobacco
factory and taught country school. He taught
his first school before he was 18 years old.--E.
with any problem which might arise in my work
as a teacher.
Our association has been very close for the last
seventeen years, during which time I have served
under him as High School Principal. I have
found him to be a superintendent who was ever
striving to improve his school system. He Was
very careful in selecting his teachers. He has
always been an idealist, but broadminded enough
to appreciate the practical things of life. I have
found in him that beautiful trait of unselfish-
ness, always thinking of the other person rather
than of himself. He always thought of the Wel-
fare of those in his school system, teachers and
students, rather than of his own.
A number of years ago, he suggested to the
Board of Education that I accompany him to the
winter meetings of the National Educational As-
sociation. The Board granted his request, and
the first meeting we attended together was held
at Atlantic City, New Jersey. On these trips, I
found that Mr. Lowther was held in very high
esteem by his fellow superintendents. One super-

I4 THE EMPORIA - Re-Echo 1935 - HIGH scHooL
The annual Senior Class dinner of Emporia
High was held Thursday night in the Broadview
grill room. One hundred and sixty members of
the Senior class and faculty were present. The
decorations and programs were arranged in keep-
ing with the Greek title "Spartans" which was
chosen last fall for the school name. The class
colors, red and silver, were used on the placecards,
programs, and table decorations. The speakers'
table which faced the other three, carried a large
silver ship, full of red roses, with red candles in
silver holders on either side of the ship. The out-
side tables bore silver fruit bowls full of red ap-
ples, gilded oranges, and silver pineapples. The
center table carried smaller bouquets of red roses
and red candles, in graduated sizes, each in a silver

candlestick. The placeeards were made to repre-
sent a Greek Galley-ship, with names and mark-
ings in silver ink.
The toastmaster, Chester Patton, and the other
seniors on the program wore "Grecian Costumesf'
Throughout the dinner four underclassmen, Bar-
bara Jean XVilson, Iris Miller, Paul Steg, and

dropg class prophecy, given by Mary K. Frith, as-
sisted by Betty Cremer. The class will given by

SE IOR CLASS
The Senior Class of ,SS was organized in Sep-
tember 1934. Chester Patton was elected presi-
dentg Dorothy Knouse, vice-presidentg Ruth
Waldrop, secretaryg and Joe Blackburn, treasurer.
The year of '54-'35 has been a most profitable
and active one for the Senior Spartans. The en-
terprises and accomplishments of the Class of '35
will long be remembered and echoed in the halls
of Emporia High.
There were many highlights of the year. One
was the Senior Banquet, a gala affair, where the
proud seniors donned their glad raiment and felt
grown up for at least one evening. Then there
was the crowning of the Spartan King and Queen.
That evening will be remembered not only for the
recognition of E. H. S.'s favorites but for the
glorious victory over the invading Topeka
The Senior sponsors-Mr. Lodle, Miss Shirley,
Miss Coverdill, Mr. Long and Miss Howe, have
been a great help and have shown every co-opera-
tion with the students, hence the Seniors wish to
thank them for their sincere interest.

SPEAKERS AT THE SENIOR BANQUET
Warren Pyle, Mar Beth Busch, Chester Patton, Mary K. Frith
Mr. Toastmaster and Friends:
We like to think that this is the best class that
ever graduated from E. H. S., but there are others
that have been just as good. Nevertheless we
have rated high in dramatics, in Hi-Y, and G. R.
organizations, in publishing an excellent Echo
and Re-Echo, in athleticsg and we have among us
several good musicians.
Let us reminisce. Do you remember the days
when we were making our Vocational Guidance
books in Citizenship? That was when we studied
careers-whether to be doctor, lawyer, merchant,
or thief. That year we elected Joe Blackburn
president, and Chester Kipling treasurer of the
Student Council. joe still continues to hold a
place of distinction, being the treasurer of this
class. Another thing that was inaugurated dur-
ing our regime was the school carnival. You
probably remember some of those stunts-Miss
Sheehan's dancing horse, Miss Marmont,s photo-
graph album, and the wedding of the painted
dolls, which was Miss Petty's idea. You will. also
remember the school picnic at Soden's Grove, that
resulted in no casualties. Joe Blackburn and
Ruth Waldrop presided over our picnic as King
and Queen, and they were escorted to the grounds
in Mary K. Frith's and Barbara Corbett's ballyhoo
car. ,Twas indeed a grand sight. "Toreadors,'
gave several of our class a start in dramatics.
Those who starred were-Carol Evans, Virginia
Nixon, Ed Clark, and Joe Donnellan.
After that memorable year, the little half-
grown chicks had their wings clipped after jump-
ing across Sixth Avenue. We found that we were
not nearly so important as we thought. I remem-
ber an incident which bothered me very much at
the time. One of my teachers said that our class
was like a small bird just learning to fly. It
+ + +
would have to shift for itself as no one was going
to come to the nest to feed it. I thought that
teacher would be "plenty hardf' but things turned
out much better than I expected.
About the biggest event of our Sophomore year
was the school frolic, and the election of our class
officers. Our stunt in the frolic was a success,
and much of the credit was due to the officers
who were: Joe Blackburn, president, Chester
Patton, vice-president, MarBeth Busch, secretary,
Charles Wayman, treasurer. We spent the re-
mainder of the year learning the ways of E. H. S.
Our Junior year held many things in store for
us to remember. Activity tickets were intro-
duced into the high school for the first time by
Coach Smith and Mr. Brown. They have de-
veloped into a system beneficial both to the stu-
dents and the school. Other highlights of last
year were our election of class officers, the oper-
etta, "Jerry of Jericho Road," and the state cham-
pionship basketball team. Chester Patton was
president of the Junior class, Agnes Thomas, vice-
presidentg Dale Buchanan, secretary, and Betty
Cremer, treasurer. Several members of our class
held important "leads" in the operetta. Those
participating were: Virginia Nixon, joe Don-
nellan, Chester Patton, and' Whitby Turner.
Jack Doty and Lindell Petty were chosen on the
state basketball team. Another event of the year
was the music contest. Leonard Hollingsworth
received a national "Superior', rating for his trom-
bone solo, and George Jones pounded a national
"Excellent" rating out of his snare drum.
Leonard was also in the brass quintet, which re-
ceived a national rating of "Excellent."
Now we are Seniors. W'e started the year right
with a fine football record, winning first place in
our league. These boys won the distinction of
being chosen on the all-state team: Harry Par-
ker, center, Dale Childears, tackle, Lindell Petty,
quarterback, and Vernon Pennington, halfback.
To lead our class we elected Chester Patton presi-
dent. He is an officer of much experience and
we knew we could rely on him. Dorothy Knouse
was elected vice-president, and Ruth Waldrop and
Joe Blackburn were elected secretary and treas-
urer. A large number of seniors belong to the
1-Ii-Y and G. R., two of E. H. S.'s popular clubs.
Betty Davis is president of the G. R. and John
Zimmerman president of the Hi-Y. A number of

l The Honor Society students for this year were school. Alvin Schmutz conducted one of the
honored at a dinner at the Broadview Hotel.
The Honor Society colors, pink and purple, were
carried out in the table decorations by bowls of
pink and purple flowers, candles and nut-CupS.
The placecards were models of the early Pennsyl-
most interesting of old school types--an old-
fashioned singing school. The "pupils', in the
school gave an entertaining program.

28 THE EMPORIA - Te-Echo 1935 - HIGH SCHOOL
This year, as is true of many other years has been a suc-
cess for the Juniors. They have represented the class very
efficiently in all of the school activities.
Many of the names on the Honor Roll were taken up by
a large portion of the Junior Class.
The winning of the football conference was partially
due to the unparalleled determination of some of the Junior
boys on the team.
Both the basketball court and the track field were
swelled with boys of the Junior Class and many of them
aided in capturing the basketball victories. They also dis-
tinguishcd themselves on the track field.
Some of the members of the class participated in the
music contests and received high honors.
The various clubs of the school such as, dramatics. Girl
Reserves, Hi-Y, Up and Atom, and G. A. A., can well
boast of their large Junior membership.
The yearly election for class officers was held at the
beginning of the school year. Charles Sheridan, president,
has shown himself to be very capable of holding that office.
Merton Wisler was a very able vice-president, while Price
Lewis, treasurer, and Lillian Rock, official scribbler, have
filled the duties of their offices in a very commendable
The sponsors of the Junior Class: Miss Douglass, Miss
Miller, Miss Sirpless, Miss Rice, Mr. Stout, and Mr. Parker
have shown a great amount of interest in the activities of
the class for which the Juniors are very grateful.
Next year the Juniors of '35 will be the Seniors of '36.
Our places will be filled by our ,brother Sophomores and it
is hoped that we have inspired them to go forward into
their new positions as we have been encouraged by the out-
going class of Seniors to whom we bid a lingering farewell.

Wfhen the school year began in Sep-
tember the new Sophomore Fs were a
bit hesitant about accepting the new
building, new teachers, and new activi-
ties as "O, K." But as time went on
they lost their fear and became interested
in school affairs, and entered into all of
the various school activities.
Most of the girls became Girl Reserves
and the majority of the boys entered the
Hi-Y. Some of the Sophomores became
members of the Echo staff, a few were
librarians, and several were on hand to
help out with the new school project-
A large number of Sophomore boys
entered in the sports of football, basket-
ball, and track and are promising ma-
terial for Emporia Senior High School.
Many of the girls were also athletically
inclined and they became members of the
Girls' Athletic Association.
Several Sophomores who had musical
talent ioined the band and orchestra: and
although they carried no leads in the
operetta, "The Flower of Venezia," there
was a sprinkling of Sophomore names
throughout the supporting cast.
As for scholarship, the Sophomore class
as a whole held its own with the ,Tnniors
and Seniors. and twice the list was headed
by a Sophomore. The Sophomores this
vcar chose lack Baird, president: Fred
Griffith. vice-president: and Mildred
Mauk, secretary and treasurer.
The first term ended successfully for
the September Sophomore I's in Ianuarv
and thev had manv new classmates who
passed from their leadership and rule as
the "Senior Class" in -lunior High to the
lowest class in Senior High and to be
looked upon in a descending manner by
the students in Em-Hi.

34 THE EMPORIA - Re-
1935 - HIGH SCHOOL
I dipped into the future as far as human eye
can see, and saw a vision of the Spartans in the
days that are to be. Far, far my fancy wandered,
long, long, I sat and dreamed, and many, many
years unfolded in a grand review, it seemed.
In distant lands had Spartans scattered-even
to Greece, their homeland far away. And there
among the legends of their forefathers, they en-
rolled their names on the honor roll of fame.
What do I see on that bronze plate, hanging
amidst the ruins of the Parthenon? Some ancient
poetry done in Embry style in tribute to all the
E. H. S. Spartans who had wandered to the far
off land of Greece.
It seems that in some hectic battle the fierce
Trojans got unruly and slayed these gallant
soldiers and nurses: Virgil Bugbee, Evelyn New-
lin, Ethel Marcellus, Lawrence Prchal, Winston
Smith, Harold Thompson, Luvoid Holt, Treva
Hensley, Lewis Eisenhauer, Emma Lou Kline,
Marie Loomis, Ellen Kopke, Millard Fillmore,
Loren Macy, Marjorie Thomas, Lorene Stout, and
Wilma Smith, who made the supreme sacrifice in
this great massacre. Perhaps many more would
have perished if it hadn't been for some gallant
soldiers who came in and conquered the Trojans.
The names of these heroes, which appear on the
second bronze plate were: Tommy Nixon. who
heads the list, followed by Paul Wise, Bill Diggs,
Chester Kipling, Raymond Thorpe, and Dale
Buchanan, and last of all that of Cecil Fish. He
didn't fight any but he kept the rest at it.
Vision travels fast and the desert of Arabia, hot
and stifling, comes in sight. A caravan of sheiks
is winding its way toward me. No one could
mistake the handsome Warren Pyle riding the
front camel followed closely by his companions:
Edward Owens, Norman Rees, Johnnie Waters,
Delmas Goldsberry. John Funk, Orville I-Iollar,
Arthur Hughes, Harry Edwards, and Herbert
Stevenson. Where are they going? I said that
they were sheiks-draw your own conclusions!
I'm told that over across the way lives Mary
Burris, Ellen Cary, Clara Jane Williams, Evelyn
Warnken, Bernice Robinson, Evelyn Stevens, Vera
Patterson, Velma Johnson, Sarah Evans, and Helen
The desert fades from sight. Now China ap-
pears. What! Has China gone modern? A
great ovation is being given Mar Beth and Charles
Nash CI said Mar Beth Nash, not Buschj for
winning an international walkathon after having
walked S00 days and nights.
This event did not draw all the village crowd,
however, because there was also a peanut race
taking place a few yards away. Harry Beals and
Otto Eubank were the efficient managers and had
built up quite a team consisting of Anna Fowler,
Eleanor Fladung, Nada Browning, Wanda Hall,
Dorothy Williams, Imogene Wilson, Edna Lamb,
Cleodora Held, Edna Keehn, and Mina Judson.
This team would have won the race if Mina hadn't
tripped in her Chinese kimono. Walter Harold
Phipps was the trainer for this team and would
have managed it if he and Wendell Kassens hadn't
been so busy manufacturing celluloid chopsticks.
Down the street Calvin Ransburg was dancing
in a night club, while nearby at a movie theatre
Hope Rider and Linus Austin were co-starring in
"Love Me, Love My Dogf' They were running
competition to Chinese grand opera, in which
Whitby Turner and Edwin Clark had the leads
with the gentle support of Doris Robe and Ver-
The Chinese can't appreciate art, either, so the
crowd went to see "Love Me, Love My Dog.',
But those who would sacrifice pleasure for art
were: Estaline Lowry, the Chinese missionary,
Edwin Theel, president of the Non-Burning Rub-
ber Co., Keith Detrich, Chinese history teacher,
,Ice Donnellan, the world's worst tenor, Harvey
Schoeck, great Hollywood reducing dietieian,
and Chester and Jean Patton and their three
beauty prize winning children.
China is left behind and the shore of sunny
California comes to sight. It must be New Year's

36 THE EMPORIA - Re-Echo 1935 - men sciioot,
One of the joys that comes with the end of
school in the spring, besides the three months'
vacation is the Re-Echo, the book of the year.
At the close of the first semester, the staff for
the 1935 Annual was chosen. These students
were given a list of assignments and told to get
busy on them. They thought that from the
looks of the assignments they had been given the
worst end of the deal, but before they were even
selected, Norlene Cooley, editor of the book, and
Mr. South worked untiringly on the "dummy."
The "dummy," as you no doubt know is the plan
of the book in detail. Every little detail is taken
Care of and finally the finished "dummy" is sent
to the engravers. Then Norlene had to make
several copies of the Ndummyi' for other uses.
Soon afterwards Seniors began having their pic-
tures taken and proofs began to come in. Each
of these had to be checked and cut down so they
could be mounted and sent by panels in to the
engravers. Write-urns of various organiyations
and departments began to pour in. They had to
be checked and made ready to be printed. Group
pictures and special sections were completed and
the book came from the udummyi' into its present
form. Thus the book repeating the history of
"Em, Hin for 1935 was published. The staff
has thoroughly enjoyed the work, and they sin-
cerely hope that you too will enjoy it and keep it,
as something to treasure in the years to come.

year under the supervision of Mary K. Frith and
her co-operative staff.
The Eehois career began in 1911 as a small
magazine and has grown to a full four-page week-
ly newspaper in twenty-three years.
The Echo is a clean, up-to-date, non-partisan
newspaper. Its object is to aid in the intellectual
development of the Emporia High School and to
publish the news of the school.
This fall "The Emporia Echoi' was represented
at the Central Interscholastic Press Association
meeting held in Kansas City, Missouri, October
11, 12, 15, 1934, by Vincent Davis and Jack Pyle
with their able supervisor, F. Jay South.
Ruth Simmons, as business manager, has very
successfully handled the money for the Echo the
past year and deserves much credit.

THE LIP-AN - TOM CLUB
The Up and Atom Club which was started in
1929 by Mr. James, was organized for the pur-
pose of bringing together the pupils socially as
well as to work experiments which could not be
worked during class periods. Each member is
given the opportunity to bring in new experi-
ments and interesting facts about science. Sev-
eral outside speakers are brought in during the
year. The first president of this organization
was Oscar Williams, a 1931 graduate.
Membership to this organization is extended to
any person in the science Classes, or to anyone
who is interested in science and new faets. The
ones wishing to join, outside of the class, must
first be approved by the officers of the club.
Officers for the Up and Atom Club of 1935 are
as follows: President, Chester Patton, Vice-
President, Leo Conwellg Secretary, Margaret Bar-
ber, Treasurer, Mary K. Frith, Sergeant-at-Arms,
Max Brown, Program Chairman, Lewis Wfhite and
The club is sponsored by Mr. Dale Stout, as-
sisted by Mr. John R. Wfilliams. Meetings are
held every two weeks, after school on Tuesday.
Some of the outstanding experiments put on
this year have dealt with oxygen, hydrogen, dry
ice, electricity, eggs floating on salt water, and
many others. Different numbers have assisted
the program committee.
The club plans to hold one social function this
year. A skating party was held this year and a
trip was taken to Lance Hill's laboratory where
the club members were introduced to the ap-
paratus used in a doctor's laboratory.

Our High School experienced a marked revival
of interest in Debate this year. Sixteen people
participated in a total of 74 debates.
The Debate season began with the organization
of a Debate Club under the sponsorship of Har-

the entire first semester, and had about twenty

Because a number of the people debating this
year were underclassmen, and because there has
been a marked interest in Debate iz the Juniorp.,

during the next school year.
The following people won letters by partici-
pating in the League and State District tourna-
ments: Sam Estep, Harold Peters, Junior Keifer,
Maudine Perry, Esther Mae Walker.
These people won third place in the District

GIRL RESERVE CLUB
In order to successfully carry out the work of
the Girl Reserves, the organization is divided into
six smaller groups, with a chairman and sponsor
for each. These chairmen meet together every
two weeks so that the committees may work to-
gether. As the G. R. is the largest organization
in the school, the girls have a great deal of work
Early in the fall of each year the club sponsors
a Magazine contest. Around Thanksgiving the
members bring donations to be given to the needy
older members of the club, take the new ones and
they are introduced into the "family" of Girl Re-
serves. Other features of the year were the G.
R. fashion show, the annual G. R.-HiY banquet,
and "Guess Again," co-sponsored by G. R.
This year the annual G. R.-Hi-Y banquet was
held at the Grace Methodist Church. These
banquets are held every year in an effort to bring
the G. R. and Hi-Y organizations together in
both work and play. This banquet was a huge
success with its delicious dinner-merry iokes and
magical tricks. The toastmasters for the oc-
families, and at Christmas they bring presents for
the poor children. This year the girls adopted a
family of six. Throughout the year they fed and
clothed them and supplied their needs as much as
they possibly could. The girls sell candy bars at
the football games. Each night after school
Betty Cremer and Virginia Wiand sell candy bars
in the first floor corridor. For that, too, the
Girl Reserves are given credit.
Perhaps it seems all work and no play, but just
ask any G. R. girl and she'll tell you soon enough
that it is not so. Every month they have a cov-
ered-dish supper at the Y. W. C. A. Each month
these suppers are under the direction of a different
committee, so as to give every girl a chance to
help. These dinners are merry occasions and will
be remembered for many years as one of the many
happy moments spent in the G. R. Club.
This year, the girls had a skating party at the
Grove. Many members were present and there
were no broken bones. So that the new girls in
the school will feel at home, the club has a big
and little sister party or tea. The big sisters, or
casion were Hellen Ellis and Sam Estep. The C.
of E. quartet were guest entertainers and the
guest speaker was Miss Mary Alice Sellers from
Roosevelt High. The theme was "Friendship.',
Group singing opened the banquet. These oc-
casions are gay-fun-loving affairs, and are to be
looked forward to by every member of the two
The annual Mother-Daughter banquet was held
at the First Methodist Church. Over a hundred
girls and their mothers were present. Miss Betty
Davis, president of the club, was toastmaster for
the dinner and Miss Helen Grissom led the group
singing. Mary McClean gave a reading and Mil-
dred Paulson gave some selected songs, accom-
panied by Mabel Jacobs. Mary Jane McCoy,
president of next year's club, gave a toast in honor
of mothers, and Mrs. M. H. Wallis responded in
honor of the daughters. The menu was as fol-
lows: Fruit cocktail, mock chicken turbot, po-
tato au grautin, Harvard beet, spring salad, rolls,
butter, angel cake, whipped cream, and coffee.
These occasions are held annually. Here the
girls can really entertain their mothers and the

June 20, at 5:30 p. m., nine girls and Miss
Thomson boarded a train bound for Omaha,
Nebraska. After a hot and dusty ride these girls
arrived at Omaha about 2:00 o'clock. They were
met by cars and taken out to Camp Brewster, the
National G. R. Conference. This camp is located
five miles south of Omaha on the Missouri river.
The girls registered and received their cabin
assignments and then they were taken on a gen-
eral sight-seeing trip around the camp and meet-
ing many of the other G. R. girls. The first
meeting was held that evening, in which a general
outline of the camp was given.
generally the girls were tired, and ready for the
warning bell at 10:15.
Ten days were spent in this delightful manner,
gathering information that might be brought
home to the G. R. Club. On june 30, the girls
left camp at 7:30 to catch the train which left
at 8:30, leaving behind, a place where they had
spent many happy moments, and where many
friendships were formed.
"Setting-Up Conference" this year was held in
the Y. W. C. A., instead of the usual place, Camp
NVood, due to bad weather. About 30 girls and
their sponsors attended. The meeting lasted from
Friday night until Saturday noon. Here plans
for the coming year were made. No theme was
chosen for this year because the girls decided one
At 7:00 the next morning they were up for

sion groups. These were divided into three groups
consisting of: family relations, religious topics,
and foreign and economic questions. After this

music, and handicraft: workshops of which one

From time immemorial, we have had music of var-
ious kinds. The first musical instruments, of
course, were crude in comparison to those of to-
day. But nevertheless they gave forth the music
of the time. At first there were very few in-
struments and then we began to have more and
more until now we have hundreds of different
What would some of the "Old Masters" think
if they should step suddenly into our musical
world of today? They would no doubt be much
surprised, but wouldn't they be pleased to see the
modern high schools of today offering music as a
study, making it poss'ble for thousands of stu-
dents over the world to obtain musical training.
It is natural for each student to Want to con-
tribute something valuable to his school and many
who are not able to do so in athletics, dramatics
or debate, can in music.
Each year E. H. S. enters the music contest,
held annually at the K. S. T. C. early in the spring.
Here many young people gather from over the
state to represent their school in the contest.
Keen competition is offered and sometimes it is
rather difficult to rate contestants. Each year
Em-Hi ranks high in these contests.
Wfe proudly exhibit our music department com-
posed of orchestra and band under the direction
of Mr. Parker, and the glee clubs under the direc-
tion of Miss Sowerby. Orchestra meets every day
first hour and the band fourth hour in the Junior
High auditorium for work. and the glee clubs
meet every day during the third and fourth hour.
Besides these organizations many individual stu-
dents participate in vocal or instrumental solos.

We are always proud of Em-Hi students who can
rank high in the various contests. The band
and orchestra are always ready when called upon.
The orchestra is on hand at all of the plays and
operettas, and the band helps us out at many foot-
ball and basketball games. The glee clubs, too,
are always happy to help out when needed.
It has only been for the past few years, that
music has been considered necessary in the high
schools. Not much interest had been taken in it
up until then, but the interest is firmly estab-
lished and it is growing rapidly. With the guid-
ance of our capable and much loved instructors in
music, we hope that E. H. S. will remain high in
all the contests in the years to come.
The annual music contest held at Teachers
College was one of the largest we have ever had.
Many schools who had not entered last year, were
here this year, which made competition keener.
The contest as usual began on Monday and lasted
until Friday night. Throughout the week many
different uniforms were seen around town, whites
and blues being the predominating colors.
E. H. S. took many honors in this contest,
among which were the following:
Highly Suberior-George Jones, Snare Drums,
Leonard Hollingsworth. Trombone, John Hol-
lingsworth, Cornet, Girls' Glee Club.
Superior-Alvin Schmutz, Boys' Medium

THE CHEER E DERS
So goes the "Old Fight Yell" that is dcar to the heart of every Em-
poria High School student.
This year there has been a better turn out of cheerleaders than any
other year so far. All those who wanted to be cheerleaders turned in
their names to Mr. Brown at the first of the year. One day in chapel
all of them came to the stage and led us in several yells. Those who
who were finally chosen were: Barbara Corbett, Virginia Nixon,
Laura May Lunsford, Bill Zimmerman, Paul Bailey, and Jane Wallis.
Three or four of these led the student body at every game. The
cheerleaders dress in the school colors, red and black. They dress in
black with the red megaphones which they received at the football
banquet on their sweaters.
A new school song was written by Margaret Sierer. The name of
it is, "We're Loyal to You Emporia High," and it is to the tune of
Illinois Loyalty. As this is the first year that we have had a name
for our team, we have several new yells centering around the Spartan
Those who have not tried to lead a group of people in yelling at a
football or basketball game cannot realize how hard it is. Much re-
sponsibility rests on the cheerleader. It is oftentimes hard to get the
attention of the crowd to direct them in the yells.
Sportsmanship in the bleachers is as important as sportsmanship on
the playing field. If the team knows the crowd is behind it, it will
exert itself to put forth all its energy to win the game.
Those participating most actively are in the above picture. They
are, left to right: Laura Mae Lunsford, Bill Zimmerman, Barbara
Corbett, Paul Bailey and Virginia Nixon.
THE EMPORIA - Rc-6660 1935 - HIGH scHooL 53
The efficient coaching staff pictured above
deserves much credit for the record made by the
Emporia Spartans in the 1934 football season.
Mr. Bloxom is assistant to Head Coach Smith.
Mr. Lodle coaches the "BU team, laying a foun-
dation for another winning team.
In viewing the season's record we see that the
1934 football season was one of the most suc-
cessful for several years. The Spartan gridsters
Won the Eastern Central Conference champion-
ship by defcating Topeka 7-0. This is the first
time Emporia has defeated Topeka in football
since 1924. A post season game was played at
Guthrie, Okla., with the Oklahoma state cham-
pions. The game ended 0-0.
In the regular season the Spartans won six
games, defeating El Dorado 13-6 in the opening
game. Ottawa and Lawrence, two conference
teams, fell to scores of 18-7 and 28-7 respectively.
LODLE, SMITH, BLoxoM
The next game with Topeka was the high spot of
the season. The Spartans eliminated Topeka 7-0
in the most thrilling game on the schedule. Sa-
lina was next to lose to the Spartans 18-6. In
the final conference game Manhattan was de-
feated 25-7. This left Emporia unbeaten in the
Burlington tied the Spartans 6-6. Guthrie also
tied the Spartans in a post season game 0-0.
Wichita North defeated Emporia in the mud 20-0.

THE EMPoR1A - Re-Echo 1935 - HIGH SCHOOL
In reviewing the basketball season of 1934-35 the record is not so
cheerful. A large squad reported for practice but only five lettermen
were back. Three of these men graduated in the middle of the year.
Petty, all-state guard, Pennington and Embry graduated after the first
semester. Vernon Kelly from last year's "BU team also graduated.
The team started off by defeating Pawnee Rock in a slow dull game,
19-13. The Newton game was a thriller with Emporia barely win-
ning, 22-21. Lawrence and Wichita North defeated the Spartans,
22-21 and 18-14. Emporia made a comeback by beating Parsons 23-
21 and dropped the next one to Arkansas City, 19-34. The next two
games were conference with Manhattan and Ottawa. Emporia win-
ning both 32-29 and 15-13 respectively. Topeka proved too much,
leaving the Spartans on the short end of 34-18. Lawrence was the
next victim to the tune of 27-22. After losing to Iola 24-40, we
later won by a forfeit. Eureka and Manhattan defeated the Spartans
by the same score of 20-26. The tables turned and Emporia defeated
Eureka 36-35 in a game packed with thrills. In a journey to Ottawa,
E. H. S. dropped a conference game, 17-18. The last game of the
regular season was a fitting close for a good team. The Spartans
swallowed all personal glory and defeated Topeka 28-26. This game
was marked with the excellent team working and showed what Em-
poria could do.
Friday, March 15, Emporia played their first game in the Regional
Tournament at Junction City. They met Abilene at 7 o'clock. They
breezed through the tournament by defeating Abilene 26-15, Junction
City 42-19, Manhattan 31-24.
The State Tournament at Topeka was held March 21-22-23.
In the first game with Hutchinson, Emporia lost a badly fought
game 22-16. U This game was closer than the score might indicate.
The next game, the first game in the consolation tournament, was
lost to Pratt 25-19.

different men and women on the School Board,
and I know that every member has always had
the kindliest feeling towards him.
And now he is leaving usg and how he will be
missed! As he muses upon the happenings of the
past thirty-eight years, he will not only recall the
hundreds of teachers and Board members with
whom he has worked during this time, but his
mind will often wander back to his relationship
with the thousands of boys and girls who have
been in the Emporia School System during these
thirty-eight years. But while he is musing upon
the past, there will be many who will be thinking
of this dear old gentleman, and although he can-
not be with us in person, as in past years, we shall
ever remember him as a true friend, as our own

Girls' Athletic Association
The G. A. A. is composed of those girls who
are interested in extra-curricular activities. The
purpose of the G. A. A. is to promote interest in
athletics for girls, to encourage good sportsman-
ship at all times, and to have a good time while
participating in these activities. It is the only
opportunity for Emporia High School girls to
earn a school letter for sports. Besides this it
provides recreational activities in a wholesome
atmosphere, and develops leadership.
There are three awards that the girls may earn.
An "E" may be received after earning six hundred
points, the second award, a "K," is received after
earning four hundred additional pointsg and the
last award, a gold pin with a "K" on it is re-
ceived after earning four hundred more points.
These points are earned by organized activities
after school, such as volleyball and basketball,
and unorganized activities such as tennis and
swimming. Before an award is received the girls
must have comoleted sixteen weeks of living up
to certain health rules, by passing three subjects,
and pass the posture test.
Our association is a member of the Kansas
State High School Girls' Athletic Association with
headquarters in Topeka. Meetings are held every
month with an interesting program, in the hands
of a capable chairman. The officers are: Presi-
dent, Helen Ellisg Sports Manager, Hope Rider,
Treasurer, Estaline Lowryg Sergeant-at-Arms,
Dorothy Dodyg Program Chairman, Foreste Gaff-
ney, and Publicity Chairmen, Mary Ann Cun-
ningham and Ida Louse Henning.

The successful person in life is alwavs cz good
sport, not only on the gridiron but in his relations
with his fellowmen. Sportsmanship is an im-
portant factor in every business. The employer
should treat his employees fairly. One expects to
find sportsmanship in the home for it is the basis
for all learning and individual culture.
One sees many phases of sportsmanship in
recreation. Here is a place for everyone to ap-
ply his idea of good sportsmanship. This term
should be applied to the spectator as well as the
player. People should be educated to control
themselves in the bleachers. No one likes a
sportsman who reproaches a player for unfair
play yet in his private business takes every chance
possible to get the best of his fellowmen.
The following are the rules of sportsmanship:
1. I will not cheat. I will keep the rules of
the game but I will play hard for the fun of the
game, to win by strength and skill. If I should
not play fair, the loser would lose the fun of the
game and the winner would lose his self-respect
and the game itself would become a mean and
oftentime cruel business.
2. I will treat my opponents with courtesy
and trust them if they deserve it.

"Come ye, come all!" was the invitation to the
Topeka-Em-Hi basketball game. And to every-
one's surprise practically the whole town, turned
out on that beautiful, quiet night of March 8, to
see one of the most cheering and exciting games
of the season. This same cheering crowd knew
also that from somewhere a King and Queen
And so at the half, our very busy Business
Manager, James Grubbs, stepped behind a micro-
phone and announced that the King and Queen
were on their way. Mr. Parker stepped before
the band and they played "We're Loyal to You,
Emporia High." The royal procession started
with the attendants, runners-up in the popularity
contest. Attendants were: Mary K. Frith, Ed-
wena Kuhlman, Doris Robe, Ida Louise Henning
and Virginia Nixon, and Chester Patton, Stephen
Fletcher, Howard Deputy, Robert Lostutter and
Harry Parker. The procession walked to the mid-
dle of the gym and then turned to the right and
proceeded to the throne.
The throne was vcry prettily decorated as were
the chairs of the attendants, which were covered
with black crepe paper with a red stripe on them.
The King and Queen walked to the throne and
the attendants took their places. Miss Norlene
Cooley, Editor of the Re-Echo, placed the crown
on the heads of the royal couple in the annual
Re-Echo popu arity contest. The popular couple
was ele nkins and Jack Dody, center on the
b ke all team.
Additional entertainment was fur-
nished by Otis Smith and Wanda Bailey
in a spectacular adagio dance.

Spady and Tommy Gibbons down on the ground.
He leaned out the window, and I guess he leaned
too far because he fell out, however he landed in
a cotton field which was soft, so he was uninjured.
Some of the people, when they reached South
America, couldn,t take it. These people were:
Bertha Kirk, Mary Louise O'Brien, Harold Peters,
Walter Peterson, and Louise Price. Lelah Pearson
was the leading gold digger. Her helpers were:
Dolly Rodee, W'inifred Saffer, Everett Hunter,
Eldon Winsor, Max Arnold. and Paul Bailey.
Robert Beach and Joe Blackburn proved to be
quite a help to the President of the U. S. They
helped the New Deal, and by sending gold to the
U. S., helped the depression become less noticeable.
Veramae Bennett was very efficient as the secre-
tary of these two lads.
Some of the people decided to take a short trip.
They got into the wilds of South America and
came upon some savage Cannibals. These canni-
bals devoured Chester Blair, Dorothy Aldridge,
John Armstrong, and Mildred Bennett. Oral
Bowers, Anna Brewer, Willia Bowers. and Vivian
Cleeton stood their ground, and will become

Hover, Arline Pederson, Elizabeth Ray, Marian
Reed, Helen Rickabaugh, Ruth Tomlinson, Alice
Wolever, Lorene Wolfe, Margaret Wiederhold,
Bethol Wiard, Hazel Wilhite, and Josephine
Chance then came upon the scene. When they
arrived only Agnes Clark, Orphia Kealy, Bill
Eagle, Bruce Blossom, and Helen Ellis, were left.
No more were eaten, however, as the cannibals
decided to go to sleep. Then the Notorious
Quartet, which is composed of Yarber Black, Roy
Hiatt, Helen Jenkins, and Wilma Hainline sang
a couple of songs. By that time everyone had
departed, realizing they had a narrow escape.
Next my mind jumps away up to Germany,
the land of the Nazis. I was surprised to see so
many old Spartans there. Why, Esther Vander-
velde, Irene Davis, Rachael Wagaman, Ione
Schaffer, and June Prince were Nazis. In Berlin,
Adolf Hitler was holding Jack Pyle and Charles
Wayman for running down the street. They
hoped that they would soon be released, however.

William Lyon Phelps said, "Outside the Bible
the six most famous words are 'To be or not to
be.' These words mean to live intensely and
richly or merely to exist--that depends on us.',
We feel that our work in E. H. S. has done much
-for us in that we have been inspired and encour-
aged to live intensely and richly and not merely
On behalf of the 1935 N. H. S. group I want
to thank the faculty for this recognition dinner
which,I know we all have enjoyed.
Since you have started us out intellectually and
now materially, we hope the goddesses of wisdom
and plenty will continue with us' on our journey.
We realize that we are the ones who will decide
whether it is, "To be or not to be."
We feel that we have quite an opportunity this
year in that we can participate in the celebration
of the aoorh anniversary of the founding of
American High Schools. This is rather unique
because we don't celebrate hundredth anniversar-
ies very often.
Our program is divided into two parts. ln the
first part we consider education of 1635.
The Latin-Grammar School was organi7ed in
Boston under religious influence. Its object was
to insure a learned ministry for the future. The
first step was taken by citizens of Boston in a
town meeting assembled on the 23rd of April in
1635. The first schoolmaster was Philemon Por-

The Latin Department of our High School will
give you a little idea of this Boston Latin-Gram-
mar School other types of schools developed. In
the New England and Middle Colonies the ideals
and attitudes of the Puritans were fostered and
developed through their religious schools. Unlike
the old Latin-Grammar School these schools pro-
vided instruction in a number of new studies
adapted to the needs and demands of a new social
order. These schools were open alike to boys and
girls. At that time om! examirmfions by schools,
committees or visitors measured the school's

You probably have been wondering about the

You often think of the early schoolhouse as the

well, because no doubt it was the little red school-

Boston deserved not only honor of establishing
the first Latin-Grammar School, but also was a
school for boys.
The first co-cduculional H. S. in America was
in the Central High School of Chicago, estab-
lished in 1856. By 1890 the H. S. was accepted
as a part of the state common school system sup-
ported through taxes. From this beginning has
developed our modern H. S. of today. Norlene

The band appeared at our home football games this year and
helped to inspire our team. On two occasions our band
was taken with the football team. Although it was raining
at both Lawrence and Wichita our band members dressed'
in white trousers and dark coats gave a marching ex-
hibition during the half. The band played for two basket-
ball games, the first and the last.
On Armistice Day, the band took part in the parade.
Several members cf the band played in the All-Kansas Fes-
tival Band at the Teachers College last fall.
The band cf forty-two members meets every day fourth

instruments are kept.

il is hoped that the band may have a good enrollment next
The musically inclined students of Emporia Senior High
School meet in an organized group every day first hour in

ever, other high school students assist this organization
whenever it appears in public.
A select grcup from the orchestra played for the cperetta.
The entire group has appeared for several civic affairs and
at different plays.
In years to come, we should have zu greater number en-
rolled in orchestra as the Junior High Orchestra has forty
members and they in the future should fill the vacancies
left by students who graduate.
Mr. Ormond Parker, who is our new band and orchestra
director, has done a great deal to build up these organiza-
titns, and he deserves much credit.

Each of you have probably heard someone say,
"Those were the good old days," but now we
compare the Latin-Grammar school of 1635 with
the modern high school of 1935, I believe that
we should say, "These are the good new days."
In the good old days discipline was vested in
the birch rod. We are glad that democracy broke
the master's birch and that good behavior is now
secured through understanding. Teachers are our
companions, leaders, and guides. Freedom has
There was a time when a little girl had to stand
by the blackboard with her nose in a circle drawn
by her teacher because she chatted too much
with her neighbor. Can you imagine how many
circles it would take under a similar circumstance
today? Even in our high school. Study halls of
30 years ago were very much like those of today,
the back seats were the most desirable.
Then learning was abstract-gained many times
through fear. Now a desire is created for the
students wants to know.
In those days the school buildings themselves
were uncomfortable and poorly equipped, these
have been supplanted by the most modern build-
ings and beautifully landscaped grounds that the
architect could create. The effect of such an
atmosphere is sure to call for the student's most
earnest efforts, and his sincerest ambitions.
Communities express their faith in knowledge
through the school buildings and grounds.
The secondary schools are the schools of the
people and the people have demanded that their
courses be practical and beneficial. Today there
are 24,000 high schools in the United States, which
accommodate nearly 6,000,000 boys and girls
from the ages of 13 to 19 years of age. These
students study about every kind of subject de-
signed to equip them for citizenship in a demo-
In the school of 1635, every pupil had to
study Latin and Greek and as the Scholastic
Magazine says: "The early academy began no-
where in particular and ended nowhere in par-
ticular." Today the student studies diversified
subjects which will enable him to become success-
ful in later life.

A Farewell Party
fliditciial in The Empcria Gazette, May 4, by W. A. Nvhitej
Saturday night's party given by the teachers in
the Emporia schools to L. A. Lowther, retiring
superintendent, was a typical party, wellvcon-
ccived, well-directed Emporia occasion. lt was
in effect a farewell party. Emporia teaahers,
board members, their wives and friends and a
few others, more or less directly connected with
the schools, gathered to say goodbye to a man
who more than any other man in town represents
the ideals of the passing generation in this com-
He is ending his thirty-eighth year of service.
Every Emporia born citizen of this town under
S0 years has passed through the schools and
touched the ideals and inspiration of L. A.
Lowther. This is a house not builded with hands.
But curiously enough he has been a builder with
brick and stone. Not one brick stands upon an-
other in this town of the old schoolhouse plant
which he saw when he came here in 1898. Every
school building now in use went up under his
direction. He found a rickety, outdated plant,
one or two buildings running back to the sixties.
He left an up-to-date modern plant, every build-
ing representing the new century rather than the
old. Not only has he seen the public school
building plant regenerated but he has watched
the two great schools in the north end of town,
the Kansas State Teachers College and the College
of Emporia rejuvenate themselves. Every build-
ing there has appeared since he came to town.
Between Fourth and Ninth avenues on Commer-
cial street, less than 75 feet of frontage on both
sides of the street stands as it stood when Mr.
Lowther came to town. Enough streets on the
outskirts of Emporia beyond the original town-
site have been added since he came here to make
a good-sized Kansas county seat town.
Naturally with all the material change, changes
in the educational ideas have come also, and he
has kept abreast of them. He has been a forward
looking, forward-moving man all these years-
nothing of the reactionary, only decently con-
The party Saturday night was a fitting tribute
to Emporia's most useful citizen. It was a fine
piece of social engineering, a short program and
a happy one.
