The Re-Echo has been published by the Senior Classes for twenty-five years. ln these books are embedded the traditions of the Senior Classes, passed down to each succeeding class. Many of our parents were in those classes and as the pages of the past annuals are turned we .see a familiar face here and there. ' We of the class of 1937 pause to pay tribute to those classes, especially the class of IQIZ through whose efforts the Rc-Echo was instituted. The Re- Echo has progressed greatly since the first paper-backed yearbook was dis- tributed, but the spirit that was embod- ied in that book still exists today. THE SENIOR CLASS OF IQ37.

Emporia High has always been fortunate with her teams. They have won state championships in both football and basketball. But whether they won or whether they lost, sportsmanship has been of first concern. We are proud of the display of trophies in our halls but we are prouder of the repu- tation that our teams have won for sportsmanly conduct. PECDPLE BO RD OF EDLICATIO L12 N1R.F. B. HEATH MRs. NV. D.

M. RICHARDS-19 ur uperintendents Mr. Lowther, former superintendent, came to Emporia to serve as head of the city schools in November 1896. He served for thirty-eight years until his retirement in the spring of 1935. He had the longest record of continuous service to one school system of any one school head in Kansas. The Lowther Junior High School building. erected in 1923, is named in Mr. Lowther's honor. 4 Mr. Lowther attended the University of West Virginia and the University of Kansas where he graduated in 1894. He studied at Clark University and at the Uni- versity of Chicago. He was a member of the State Schoolmasters Club, the Masons in Emporia and he was a 32ml degree in the Scottish Rite consistory of Topeka. The Modern W'oodmen, and Sigma Xi, national honorary society of the University of Kansas, were organizations in which he held mem- bership. He was a member of the Emporia Chamber of Commerce, served several years on the board of directors of the Y. M. C. A. and for twenty-five years was a member of the city library board trustees. Mr. Lowther supervised the introduction of many of the present changes in the curriculum beginning with a manual training de- partment in 1903. Home economics, commercial training, ath- letic training, art, library, and music courses have kept pace with the changing times. In 1912 the people of Emporia voted bonds for the present Senior High building and it was erected on the school block just north of the old Garfield building. Completed in 1914 it was a 4-year high school. At this time the high school course was divided into Junior and Senior High Schools. lt was necessary to divide the days-the Senior High classes meeting in the mornings and the Junior High in the afternoons. This continued for several years until the present junior High building was completed in 1925. Mr. Richards, the present superintendent, was appointed in August 1935. Mr. Richards is a native Kansan, having spent his early boy- hood on a farm in Elk County near Howard. He attended the rural schools in Elk County through the eighth grade. At the age of 18 he obtained a teacher's certificate and began teaching in a rural school in Elk County. He taught two years at Severy, Kansas, before he went to college. After he had completed college he went back to the Severy High School as superintendent. fContinued on Page 74D 1896-L. A. LOXVTHER-1935 I 13 I i. I Q , . , X The Principals At the Emporia High School in the last twenty-five years there have been four principals, Messrs. Charles Wagner, S. U. Pett, R. R. Cook, and R. E. Brown. Mr. Wglgner was a student of the Kansas University from which he obtained his A. B. He was principal of Emporia High from 1910 to 1912. Not only was he principal but he also taught mathematics. Mr. S. U. Pett became principal in 1912. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1900 at the Michigan State Normal. He was instructor of agriculture and psychology in Emporia High while Mr. Wiigner was principal. Mr. R. R. Cook obtained his A. B. at the University of Kansas and became principal in 1915. In the fall of 1918, Mr. Cook went to Topeka and Mr. Brown became principal. Mr. Brown graduated from Emporia High School in 1904. He went from there to the College of Emporia where he was a member of the graduating class of 1908, obtaining his Bachelor of Arts degree. During the last year at C. of E., he taught Latin at Emporia High. l14l I Later he taught history and English classes. He became vice-principal in Emporia in 1916. Part of his work as vice-principal was to be financial manager. During this time Mr. Brown attended the University of Kansas several summer terms. He obtained his master's degree in 1923. Wliile at K. U. he became a member of the Phi Delta Kappa, an honorary educational fra- ternity and national organization. Mr. Brown is a member of the Rotary Club and of the Schoolmasters Club which is made up of principals and superintendents from many first and second class cities all over the state. It is the oldest club of its kind. Mr. Brown is also one of the Y. M. C. A. Board of Directors in Emporia, a member of the Athena Honor Society Qscholasticj of the College of Emporia, and a member of the C. of E. chapter of the Phi Mu Alpha National Music Fraternity. When Mr. Brown started teaching, the grad- uating classes were much smaller, many being less than 50. Now the classes are three or four times that large. 4 Mr. Brown has witnessed many changes in the years he has been principal. The National Honor Society was organized and other activi- ties, such as band, orchestra, glee club, and dra- matics have been brought into the school as units of credit. SENIOR OFFICERS I.oREN MILLER ,A,7,,,. , .,,,,. ,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,, , Prvsidwzf LENORE FLETCHER ,,,,, .,,L,,, S ccretary GEORGE KING ,L,,... . .VY... Treasurer' JIM SLATTERY ,,7,, , View-Prcxiflwzt enior Class "Time Marches On," and the uncertain sophomores of a few years ago have become tlie aggressive Senior Class of 1937. These Seniors have endeavored to make their class outstanding and have indeed succeeded. Its members have excelled in scholarship, sports, dramatics, leadership, and all other fields of activity which they have entered. They began their last year in good form by first electing a group of very competent officers. Loren Miller was elected president, Jim Slattery, vice-president, Lenore Fletch- er, secretary, and George King, treasurer. These officers, with the aid of the Senior sponsors, Miss Hancock, Miss Jackson, Miss Howard, Miss Rodewald, and Mr. James, planned a varied group of activities for the year, all of which were successful. Probably the most elaborate one was the Senior Banquet which drew a big crowd and was enjoyed by everyone who could attend. The crowning of the King and Queen was another important affair, especially to the seniors because all but two of those nominated were members of this class. The class of 1937 is one of the largest that has ever graduated from Emporia High School. T151 l,ORl'Nl, Rlfl-S--Ci. R. '34, '35, '36, '37, Ci. A. A.

It was hold the evening of January 21 in the Broadview grill room which had been decorated to represent the theme "Fairyland," with the class colors, rose and silver, pre- dominating throughout. Each table had small silvered thorn trees decked with pastel crepe paper leaves, placed at each end, and placed in the center of a rose and silver runner was a large basket of multi-colored flowers and candles. The candles furnished most of the light and made an effective background for the bright dresses of the senior girls and dark suits of the boys. The same color scheme was carried out in the nutcups and programs. After the dinner an interesting program was introduced by Loren Miller, the toast- master. It included two instrumental numbers, one a piano quartet by Barbara Jean Wilson, Esther Mae Wfalker, Barbara DeLay and Vera Bible, and the other a cornet and trumpet duet by Edwin XVortman and John Hollingsworth, accompanied by Mary Jane Knouse. The Class History was read by Bill Zimmerman and Mildred Mauk, the Will by Kermit Worley, and the Prophecy was given in play form by Sarah Margaret Morris, French, Cecil Mcllvain, and Quentin jane Lee Swope, Edna Louise Fleming, David Donnellan.

The students who are elected to the Honor Society must receive a majority of faculty votes. A recognition service for the thirty-one new members was held March 12 in the general assembly. Members of the 1936 Honor Society conducted the services. Cn April S, a dinner, given by the faculty, was held at the Broadview Hotel. Each member took part in the program that followed.

This year, however, about twenty-five students are classified as Senior I's and will be Senior II's next fall. For this reason they organized as a class, and elected officers. The officers are: President, Newton Wilson, Vice-President, Bill Bixlerg and Secretary-Treasurer, Allen Smith. These Senior I's have been outstanding in many extra-curricular ac- tivities. They have participated in debate, various athletics, dramatics, glee clubs, Echo, in the music contest, and in the Girl Reserves and Hi-Y. Many of their names appear on the Honor Roll each six weeks. Next fall the Echo editorship, Hi-Y presidency, and the offices of football cap- tains will be filled by these Senior I students. Some of the Senior I's will finish their work next January, while others will continue their classes till next May, when they will graduate with those who are now Junior II's. The Senior I sponsors have been helpful in assisting the Seniors and giving advice. The sponsors this year have been Miss Thomson, Mr. Smith and Mr. Payne. This is the first year a Senior I panel, with individual pictures, has appeared in the Re-Echo. We are sure these Senior I's, with such a good start will make a fine addition to next year's graduation class. NEWTON WVILSON ,,,s..

Although they have not had any outstanding features of their own, they have taken part in the all-school activities. A great number of the Juniors were proud to see their names on I the'Honor Roll. The Junior boys have fought hard on the "A" and "B" football and basketball teams which have helped to bring many victories to Emporia High. They are also well represented on the track teams. The girls of the Junior class make up a large part of the G. A. A. and have taken active part in sports such as volleyball, basketball, horse- back riding, and bowling. Besides the sports the Juniors have participated in various clubs. They are: the Up and Atom, Latin Club, Girl Reserves, and Hi-Y. There are also a large number of Juniors on the Echo staff and in dramatics, musical activities, public speaking and debate. ' The Juniors were fortunate to have Mr. Lodle, Miss Shirley, Miss Coverdill, Mr. Bloxom, and Miss Howe as their sponsors. The election of officers was held in the middle of the year and a group of trustworthy Juniors was chosen. Robert Lair was elected presi- dent, Stuart W'atson as vice-president, Mary Jane Knouse as secretary, and Dorothy Atherton as treasurer. Although the Senior class has a large responsibility, the Juniors are looking forward to their position earnestly. They hope they will be able to fill the place as Seniors as efficiently as it has been filled in the past.

Vice-President Sophomore Class The Sophomore Class of '37 arrived from the Junior High feeling rather superior as they had been the "senior classv in Junior High. They found that this was not to be so in Senior High but they soon settled clown with real interest in school affairs. The Girl Reserves soon claimed the membership of the majority of the girls and many boys joined the Hi-Y. Several Sophomores became interested in helping edit the school paper, the Echo, while others' interest was drawn toward being librarians or debators. Those interested in music were soon found in the glee clubs, orchestra or band, while still others tried out for the many sports of E. H. S. The girls joined the Girls' Athletic Association and a few boys tried out for football. The honor roll was not found lacking in the names of Sophomores. Several times the honor roll was headed by a Sophomore. The Sopho- mores elected Richard Keifer, presidentg George Goldsmith, vice-presi- dentg Doris Arnold, secretaryg and Sally Wood, treasurer. The second term began with the Sophomores having more confidence and feeling years older than when they were Sophomore I's. They have become an essential part of the high school. Watch these Sophomores grow and develop great leadership among the students within the next two years. They will be a successful group throughout their remaining school years. The Sophomore sponsors for this year have been: Mr. Stout, Mr. Nichols, Miss Sirpless, Miss Douglass, Miss Miller and Miss Rice.

Annually these are enlarged and developed in keeping with the growth of Em- Hi. Twenty-five years ago the Girl Reserves, l-li-Y, band, orchestra, Echo, Re-Echo, Up and Atom and various other school organizations were non- existant or a few small groups. They have progressed until they are a very important part of Spartan school life. GVGINITS The Girl Reserve of Senior High is the outstanding club for girls. This year the mem- ix::mET bership totals 335. MORMS In July the National G. R. Conference was held at Grinnell, Iowa. The Emporia G. R. was represented at the conference by four girls. The purpose of the conference was to give the girls new ideas to carry out in their own club and to meet and associate with the girls from all over the country. One of the cabinet members, Vice-President Margaret Snow, was forced to leave school be- cause of illness. Her place was taken by June Archer. This year a new idea was carried out as to the programs given every two weeks. The Pro- gram Chairman assigned a girl to a certain pro- gram in advance, and this girl organized her helpers and planned a program for the date set. This lessened the work of the Program Chairman and gave a chance to girls who had never before had a chance to show their ability as leaders to organize the program. One of the featured items on the G. R. pro- gram for the year was a dinner given every month at the Y. W. C. A. Each month one of the com- mittees took charge of the dinner and the pro- gram. Fine times were had at these gatherings and they offered the girls an opportunity to be- come better acquainted with their teachers as well as with each other. The World Fellowship Committee gave a party for the Mexican children of the Spanish Mission. In the past they have been aided by the G. R. of the Junior High School, but this year they carried it out to the best advantage alone. This is always quite an affair in the lives of the Mexican children. Two of the G. R. girls started the year in service, by selling candy in the front hall after school, to students and teachers. This is an old custom which is not only a benefit to those who like candy but also to the G. R. treasury. An- other service many of the girls took part in was the magazine sale held the first semester. The magazines were published by the Crowell Publish- ing Co. Prizes were given to the girls Who sold three or more magazines. The G. R. was divided into committees to see which could sell the most. About S40 or S50 was obtained through this sale to put in the treasury. A helpful deed which was performed by the Service Committee was the making and hanging of new curtains in the G. R. G. R. Prvxizlenl I 42 I GIRL RESERVE restroom. A new rug was also obtained for the floor. The Setting Up Conference was held in Oc- tober at the Y. W. C. A. The chairman of each committee and a selected group met and planned for the coming year. After the Setting Up Con- ference a group of girls composed a G. R. song. The song is entitled "On the Good Ship S. S. Progressug the tune is that of "The Good Ship Lollypopf' The song was so titled because the theme of the year was "Ships." The Mid-Winter Conference held at Hering- ton, Kansas, was represented by six girls and two sponsors, Miss Thomson and Miss Shirley, from our own G. R. club. They went in cars on Fri- day and returned Sunday. The conference theme was "Life and I." Friday evening was spent in getting acquainted. The next two days were filled with discussions, lectures, special music, worship and a banquet. It was the Tenth Anni- versary Conference of the Kansas District of the Y. NW. C. A. We were fortunate in obtaining Mrs. William Inskeep Morgan, lecturer and discussion group leader of Iowa City, to speak to the girls and boys of Emporia High on October 20, 21, and 22. During the last four years Mrs. Morgan has lectured in many colleges, universities, and high schools. She was formerly a faculty member at the C. of E. For Thanksgiving this year, the members contributed clothes, food, and money which was turned over to the Wfelfare Board. Every year near Christmas time, one of the most worthwhile jobs that the G. R. participate in is either the adoption of a family or sponsoring a party for children. The Service Committee had charge of giving the children from different schools a Christmas party. I This year it was decided to have a party for the first grades from every public school in Emporia. These were: Mary Herbert, Century, Maynard, Riverside, Union, Kansas Avenue, and Walnut. The Social Committee in March entertained in the high school gym all members of the G. R. with a backward party with everyone wearing her clothes backwards. Prizes were given for the best costumes. A Parent-Daughter banquet was held April 29th at the Mit-Way Hotel. The theme carried out was "Treasure Hunt." Many girls and their parents attended. Lenore Fletcher was judged by the faculty as the best girl citizen in the senior class at the second election. She represented Emporia High School in the district contest held. The winner from the district was entered in the state contest and the winner from the state contest will get a trip to Wfashington. The selection of the girl in the district was held in the G. R. meeting by Mrs. H. G. Itull. The selection of the girls is based on four qualities which are: dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism. Miss Hamer, dean of girls, left February 13 for New Orleans where she attended the National Association of Deans of Wonaen, which was held there February 16-20. She also attended the National Education Association which was held February 20-25. Because of the terrible flood in the Ohio and Mississippi valley district the G. R. collected food, clothing, and money which they gave to the Red Cross to send to the flood sufferers. The G. R.'s success this year depended upon these cabinet members: Sarah Margaret Morris, president, June Archer, vice-president, Mildred Mauck, secretary, Margaret Bishop, treasurer, Lenore Fletcher, Programg Evora Martin, Pub- licity, Mary Jane Knouse, Music, Elizabeth De- Long, Service, Barbara DeLay, Social, Dorothy Edds, XVorld's Fellowship, Margaret Bishop, Fi- nance Committee. Election of next yearls cabinet was held April 1, and the following girls were chosen: june Archer, president, Doris Arnold, vice- president, Dorothy Atherton, secretary: and Emily Hughes, treasurer.

The Burrough Girl Reserves has had a very successful year along the business and social line. The club has 15 members. They began their year by having Installation and Recognition Ser- vices for the officers and new members at the Second Christian Church. A covered dish luncheon was held at the Y. XV. C. A.

The class, now under the direction of Mr. Shull, has twenty-two active debators, many of whom are participating for the first time. During the school year, the team took part in a total of 135 formal debates. The tournaments attended were the Reading Invitation Tour- nament, one at Coffeyville, Hamilton, College of Emporia, Osawatomie, the Eastern Kansas Conference Tournament, the District Four Tourna- ment, and the Kansas High School Debating League Tournament at Kansas University. Emporia acted as host for four of these larger tour- naments. Fifty of the eighty-seven debates entered were won by our team, and three of these were first place in tournament debating. Our debators are now rated tenth in the state, which is very good, considering the length of time the class has been a part of the school curriculum. Although there is always a large amount of work to be done, the class has also found time for several social actitives, the outstanding one of which was the debate banquet held early in May. At this affair, keys were presented to everyone in the class for their work during the year. Private parties were also held for the members of the class, and a farewell party was given for Mr. H. B. Taylor, who resigned early in the year. Emporia is now a member of the National Forensic League, and about seventy-five High School Forensic members met here for the state contest. Several Em-Hi students placed in the meet, and went to Jack- sonville, Illinois, for the national contest. Mary Jane Groh was elected president of the Emporia chapter of the league and Bob Lair was made secretary. DRAMATICS SENIOR Pl AY CAST The dramatics class which meets sixth hour every other day Linder the direction of Miss Miller has furnished much laughter for the school this year. In class they worked on exercises to improve diction and to get the correct pronunciation of words. For enjoyment as well as practice they gave a few pantomimes and characterizations. They did this in class while they were not busy working on plays for outside use. Some of the many plays which the dramatics department presented for the entertainment of the school and other organizations are as follows: "The Ring and the Lookf' "Rich Man, Poor Manf, "Little Personf, and "There Is Always Tomorrowf' One of the successful plays of the year was the one-act play given by the seniors in the dra- matics class. The name of the play was "Com- mand Performancef' which was presented for Open House. The main persons in the cast were Laura Mae Lunsford, Jane Lee Swope, Ker- mit Worley, Fred Griffith, Mary Louise Louis, David French, and Quentin Donnellan. The first semester of the school year the dra- matics class, under the auspices of the Girl Re- serve and Hi-Y Clubs, presented a three-act play in the Lowther Junior High School auditorium called, "Big Time." The leading characters in the cast were Jane Lee Swope, Laura Mae Luns- ford, Kermit Wforley, Quentin Donnellan, Paul Conway, julian Aubuchon, Gail Rindom, Loren Miller, Lloyd Morse, and Norman Bumgarner. Then the performance of the year came. It was the Senior play which is presented every year by the Senior Class sometime during the last few weeks of school. This year Miss Miller chose two casts so more of the Seniors would be able to par- take in the play. Some of the leading persons in the two casts are: Mary Louise Louis, Loren Miller, Sarah Margaret Morris, julian Aubuchon, Quentin Donnellan, Jane Lee Swope, Bill Zim- merman, Lenora Fletcher, Hubert Rowlands, Cecil Mcllvain, Barbara jean Wfilson, Wiiiifretl Jones, Kermit XVorley, Edna Louise Fleming, Mary Lumley, and Florence Foster. l4Sl l46l Junior-Senior FRED Gkllfl-'ITH I Prrsizlmt I 1 , The Hi-Y clubs feel that they have had a very successful year. Their activities of 1936 and 1937 started with the attending of Camp RKHMD Wood. The boys who attended Kmmfn were Gerald McGuire, Robert Lair, l'ff"i'11"'f Bill Zimmerman, Fred Griffith, and Rhodes Lewis. Emporia has had representatives at .Camp Wood for many years. The Hi-Y and Girl Reserves presented their annual G. R.-Hi-Y benefit play, "Big Time," on Friday, November 20th. On October 19th and 20th, the Girl Reserves and Hi-Y brought a well known speaker, Mrs. William Morgan, of Iowa City, to the Emporia High School. She gave a series of lectures on family relationships and she spoke at the annual G. R.-Hi-Y banquet. They put on three very successful entertainments: first, Carle Von Hoffman, the cxplorerg second, Max Gilstrap, the whistling ranger, and third, C. H. Jones, the top spinner, who gave a program on Gyroscopes. Besides the G. R.-Hi-Y benefit play and entertainment course, the Hi-Y clubs made money by selling hot dogs at the football games. This money will be used to send boys to Camp Wood next summer. At the first of the year the cabinets of the clubs recommended that the Hi-Y clubs donate the main doors to Hutch Memorial, a new building being erected at Camp Wood. The recommendation was approved by the clubs. The Junior-Senior Hi-Y held a series of meetings on war and peace. There were three meetings in which the subject was discussed. Dr. Wells Smith spoke at the first meeting on peace by disarmament, and at a second meeting, Captain J. J. Donnellan spoke on peace by armament. At a final meeting, Rev. Allison of the Methodist Church, who had heard both talks, summed them up and led a discussion on the subject. The Sophomore club attended the meetings also.

Bass l48J MUSIC Emporia High has always been proud of its fine music department. Our music department has certainly developed and improved in a quarter of a century. We now have boys' and girls' glee clubs, music appreciation, and class voice, in addition to the band and orchestra. For a number of years Miss Kathleen Sowerby was head of the music department. Upon her resignation last fall, Mr. Edwin Payne became the director. Under his direction the department has been very successful this year. Individual students have participated in vocal or instrumental solos, the year. The music students who wish to a cultural standpoint. in trios, quartets, and other groups, throughout department offers special opportunities for those contribute something valuable to the school from to really appreciate the In just the last few years, E. H. S. has begun music department and realize what a valuable part it played in the high school life. Students are, as a whole, much more eager for music training and appreciation now, than in the past. Year after year Emporia High has entered the annual spring music contest at the K. S. T. C. and won high ranking, despite the keenest of competition from out-of-town groups. was held from April 20th to 24th. this year than any other year in the history of the school. Emporia, as always, won many honors. This year the music contest More entered from Emporia High the Lowther Junior High School the this vesper formed a boys' and girls' mixed chorus. This is the first year the music department ever gave a vesper. A vesper service was given at first Sunday in May. Students in Another feature new to the school this year is the class in vocal training. In this class the students study ensemble and solo singing, the technique of voice production and interpretation of songs. The class also studies poise, and the conduct and position. of a singer on the stage. Each pupil is required to do solo work. The other pupils act as critics, and make helpful suggestions. I N 1 J' sv if of During the recent depression occupations in the field of music have not been overcrowded as other occupations. With shorter working hours and more time for recreation in the future, everyone who possibly can should take up music. Besides its occupational opportunities, music can be made a hobby, or a way of profitably spending leisure time. Music is decidedly profitable, and contributes to culture and higher standards of living. Our high school music department is trying to ac- complish such ends. l l49l Band and Urchestra Along with the many other subjects of high school, students may take both band and orchestra under the direction of Mr. Ormond Parker. These groups meet five times a week during the regular school day. There are eighty-three band members and sixty-five orchestra members. The band played for all of the home football and basketball games this year. They wore their uniforms to all of the football games and whenever the weather permitted they gave an exhibition drill between halves of the football games. They also made several trips out of town with the football team-Lawrence, Wfichita, and Ottawa. Besides these three trips, two trips were made to Kansas City to the American Royal and the Santa Claus Parade. In telling of these musical organizations, orchestra must not be forgotten. The orchestra has played between acts of school plays and has also aided in assembly programs. Small ensembles from the orchestra were used many times for banquets. Several of the orchestra members attended the All-Kansas Orchestra which was held at Wichittl. Each year in April many students enter in the Spring Music Festival at the Kansas State Teachers College here in Emporia. Both band and orchestra enter. There are also many soloists and small ensembles en- tered. This year there were 10 soloists and 4 small ensembles. Soloists, Violin, French Horn, Trombone, Drum, Tuba, Clarinet, Baritone, Cornet, Saxophone and Baton Twirling, were the events en- tered. The Ensembles were Brass Quartet, Brass Sextet, Reed Quartet and String Trio. Although six band members and nine orchestra members will be lost by graduation, their places will be filled by the new Sophomores from the Jr. H. S. Band and Grchestra. The Senior High band members are as follows: Junior Anderson, -lulian Aubuchon, Wfarren Austin, -lohn Bailey, Shirley Bales, Levi Barnes, Frances Bishop, Herbert Braynard, Kenneth Brewer, Kenneth Briggs, Floyd Browning, Don Burton, Leland Coleman, Keith Cooper, Ruth Crumley, Richard Easum, Dorothy Edds, Mary Evans, Harold Frazier, .lack Frost, Robert Fry, Hubert Gray, Rex Gray, Bob Goodwin, XVilliam Green, Eugene Grissom, Duane Hickox, Ray Hill, Don Hollar, John Hollingsworth, Esther Jordan, Richard Keifer, Vfilliam Kells, Paul Knoeppcl, Mary Jane Knouse, Elvin Koger, Victor Liflanslty, Bob Lodle, Bob l,umley, Mary Lumley, Emma McGlinn, Gerald McGuire, Maryan Macy, Max Morris, Avis Mercer, Bill Miller, Marjorie Mitchell, Robert Mott, Maurice Myers, Eva Nelson, Beverly O'Bryhan, Mildred Pat- terson, Mary Etta Perkins, Betty L.

Dur- ing the year 1909 the paper was supported entirely by subscriptions and contained no advertising. By 1911 the paper was well-established and it has continued and grown to the weekly four-page paper we now have. This year many special editions of the Echo have been put out.

Some of the best experiments performed by members, have been on hydrogen, oxygen and dry iee. Outside speakers have entertained the stu- dents. Mr. Lance Hill, technologist, gave a very instruc- tive talk and performed a heart test on one of the students. The members of the club are all Senior High School students who are interested in science, and in learning more about it. Many who took chemistry, as Juniors, have kept their contact with it, by belonging to the club in their Senior year. Those who belong must attend the meetings regularly and assist in experiments when asked. Mr. Dale Stout sponsors the club, assisted by Mr. John R. W'illiams. From an unusually large membership this year the fol- lowing officers were chosen: President, Keith Brewer, Vice-President, Robert Lair, Secretary, Margaret Bishop, Treasurer, Edna Louise Fleming, Sergeant-at-Arms, Stuart Watson, Program Chairman, David French, Social Com- mittee Chairman, Lenore Fleteherg Publicity Committee Chairman, Margaret Yearout. Industrial Arts Department One of the outstanding departments of the Emporia High School is the Industrial Arts De- partment. Supervisor George A. Lodle instructs the boys as to the using of lathes, mechanical tools, and complicated machinery on which, in due time, the boys are able to make lovely pieces of furniture. The desks, lamps, dressers, radio and magazine racks, tables, beds and cedar chests shown in the above pictures were all made by the Emporia High School students. Many of them were taken home to be treasured by proud parents. At the Open House held in the spring, the Industrial Arts display was a big feature. The products all show skill and artistic ability. Classes offered in the Industrial Arts Depart- ment are Mechanical Drawing, Architectural Drawing, Manual Training I and II and Advance Cabinet Making III and Wfood Turning I and Il. Students who have done outstanding work this year in Mr. Lodle's classes have been: Mechanical Drawing: Leon Bateman, Rob- ert Bannister, Junior English, Leon I.eGresley. Manual Training: Robert Gilliland, Jack Sager, Keith Brewer, Russell Roth, Max Harris, XVayne Gatewood, Herbert Worrell, Billy Duncan, Curtis Duncan, Kenneth Emley, Herman XVal- ters, Bill Martin, Cleon Davis, Runnells Cox, Ed- ward Fladung, Fred Davidson, Orville Brown, Mark Essex, Floyd Rice, Charles Staatts, Virgil Patterson, Leonard Clausen, Lowell Kraum, Mil- lard Uhl, Myron Macy, Clyde Aldridge, Charles Aldridge, Marion Jones, Robert Bannister. ISS! Ulympian Coun il and S. P. R The Latin Club was organized at the beginning of the school year by the sponsor, Miss Douglas. The club did not follow the usual pattern in consisting only of Latin Ill students. This year it was composed of the Sophomore students and has proved to be invaluable. They are di- vided into two groups. The hour two class was called Senatus Po vulusc ue Romanusg the ' D h l l Iznglish translation being the Senate and the Roman People. They met every third Friday of each month. At these meetings discussions were held com arin Y customs of Ancient Rome to those of toda . Two mem- P is Y bers have planned each program and have endeavored to develop in the u ils an a reciation and better understandin' of the Latin lan'ua e. P P PP . E ' s . s s After the meetings, games were carried out in the Latin style to complete the program. The Olympian Consul of the hour five class was organized to help the students learn and remember Latin phrases and words used in the modern world of today. The meetings were very interesting and con- sisted mostly of reports by the members. The social events of the year have been a skating party and a picnic which were attended by both clubs. The officers for the second hour are as follows: for the first se- mester-consul primus, Gerald McGuireg consul secondus, Betty Crab- treeg scriba, Victoria Truslerg quaestor, Sue Thompsong second semester- -consul primus, Donald Lloydg consul secondus, Dean Classg scriba, lfloyd Browningg quacstor, Richard Keifer.

"THINGSb07tQl'QaCt.CO E" SCENE. Several people are sitting in the drawing-room of a Park Avenue Apartment house where their hostess fEdna Louise Flemingj is pouring tea. It is the year 1975. CHARACTERS. David French-an eminent scientist. Cecil Mcllvain-a great poet. Quentin Donnellan-the coach at Notre Dame. Sarah Margaret Morris--a buyer for Tiffany's in New York. Jane Lee Swope--a very famous stage and screen star. Quentin: We've had a wonderful time this evening, real- ly I don't know when I've had a better time. Edna Louise: Thanks, coming from you that's a big compliment. Quentin: I've always enjoyed going to parties. David: I can remember when I used to use all my in- fluence to get to go to college parties. Iane Lee: It seems like a long time ago, doesn't it? Edna Louise: Who could forget their high school days? Those were the good old days! Sarah Mnrgaref: I guess the gang is pretty well scattered now. I wonder whatever became of our class president? David: Lornie Miller? He is connected with the "Bet- ter Light, Better Sight" Institute. He has a monopoly on "Lornie's Shure Fit Cosmic Ray Glassesf' Iane Lee: Those are the glasses that utilize cosmic rays and thereby make artificial lighting at night unnecessary, aren't they? Ceril: Yes, they were first used by motormen on the underground trolley but now they are standard equipment for everyone's rocket. Sarah Margarel: And talking about rockets, did any of you read about Kermit Worley leaving yesterday in his rocket for the peace conference in Utopia? Quenlin: Say, I took a trip the other day also. I went on the tube elevator to the surface, and believe it or not, Paul Conway was the operator. Edna Louise: The other day when the Queen of England made her speech I saw that Lenore Fletcher was her secre- tary. lane Lee: Speaking of broadcasting, Florence Foster broadcasts the Associated Press news on station ISKY in Russia. Sarah M.: Who was that handsome boy in our class with the brown hair and the musical name: do any of you re- member? David: Was it Jenkins? Yes, Don Jenkins. He was a traveling salesman for awhile and then he became an ex- position artist for "United Television and Radio Corporation of America." Quentin: Keith Brewer is president of that, isn't he? David: Yes, Don had a strong man act wherein he held :i girl upon a piano.

Edna Louise: Have you been to Europe lately through Jack Baird's trans-Atlantic tunnel? Cecil: I always knew that he would do something mar- velous like that if he ever had the chance to express him- self. Sarah M.: But you'll have to give the blue ribbon to Barbara DeLay for having the latest idea in diet. Her English tea room is very famous for its roast crow. jane Lee: June Thomas landed Lord Borebrook, but I hear he's had a busy time with her because her mind is like a railroad time table, subject to change without notice. just now they are on a cruise to Singapore. Quentin: They'll miss out on Norman Bumgarner's new songs. I hear he is going to introduce the "Meat Grinder's Twist" in his Gold Diggers of 1975. Edna Louise: just the other day I noticed a quaint little shop on Park Avenue. You know I wanted to buy one of the-se glass hats that are so popular now, and who do you think was the owner of the shop? It was Virginia Gray. You know she always did have a lot of clothes sense. David: Well, some of the lights of our class are still burning. Mary Beth Steward is now in Congress, and Mabel Schwindt is a Red Cross nurse. Of course you know that Margaret Bishop is living in the White House as wife of the President.

Ceeil: Edgar Hunter married Jesse Owens' sister and is now managing the World's Olympics. Quentin: And julian Aubuchon was telling me about the troubles that confronted the owners of trailers. He said the hitch-hikers of today have adopted a new attitude. The only thing they use their thumbs on now are the trail- ers, and instead of being thankful for a ten-mile lift, they get sore if you don't offer them room and board. He is operating a station that services trailers, and he says that the attendants have to sew on buttons, get out the wet wash, and even darn socks. lane Lee: Ken Everett is a man to be envied. Sarah M.: Yes, Postmaster General is no job to be sneezed at. David: And if you did you would blow away all the rocket stamps printed on onion skin. Cecil: Not to mention the six weeks' detention you would receive at the Institute for Preservation of Public Health. Edna Louise: Orland Deputy is in the hospital at Cal- cutta, India, recovering from the sprained ankle and shock he suffered when he punctured one of his air-flow shoes while climbing down Mt. Everest. David: Talking about slides, Worth Seagcndollar took one right up to the highest paid scientist of today.

CONHICT 6 SPARTAN PEP ' Fmporia High girls' pep club was organized this year for the purpose of lead- ing in cheering and singing at the football and basketball games. Under the direction of Miss Dorothy McCauley and Mr. George l.odle, sponsors, many girls joined the organila- tion. The officers elected were: Laura Mae Lunsford, President, and Lenore liletcher, Secretary-Treasurer. Members of the club adopted a uniform consisting of a blaclt skirt, red sweater, black scarf, and red hat. Many of the girls attended out-of-town games, and those who did lltlt tried to at- tend every home game. A section was reserved in the bleachers for the club, and it made a very colorful and helpful addition to all of the games. Besides gathering at the games, the girls held meetings just before each game to practice the yells. At these meetings talks were given by Mr. Brown, Superintendent Richards, and Mr. I.odle. The club has proven a great success this year. The boys, through their determina- tion, won many games, spurred on by the enthusiastic cheering of the girls. ln the future this club will probably become one of the strongest organizations of the school. Twenty-five years from today, a new group of girls dressed in different uniforms will he cheering a new team of boys, participating perhaps, in some ne f they still will be Iimporia Highs "Spartan Peppers." vu game. But The Spartans finished the season with six victories and four defeats. The team occupied third position in the conference with a S00 per cent standing. The season opened with the Spartans defeating the Strong City crew 21 to 0. The next fray ended in a defeat at the hands of Newton, a strong Ark Valley league team. After a hard battle the team lost a heart-breakers 6 to 7. The Red and Black, then in a vengeful mood, handed Burlington a 13 to 7 setback. In their first conference game the Spartans lost to a much larger Topeka team on a very muddy field 0 to 20. Emporia then showed its best form of the season by completely routing the Lawrence Lions in the second conference tilt 25 to 0. The next conference battle, a game packed with thrills, resulted in a loss to Manhattan 19 to 20. A determined Spartan crew then proceeded to down the Hutchinson Salt Hawks 25 to 6. E. H. S. gridsters continued their onslaught by whitewashing Ottawa in the last conference game 18 to 0. The Red and Black then dropped a hard fought contest to Wichita North 0 to 6. In the last game of the 1936 season the Spartans journeyed to Council Grove on Thanksgiving to face a strong home team. The score after the last gun was 40 to 12 in favor of Emporia. All in all, the team turned in a good season, losing two games by one-point marg'ns, and one game by one touchdown. The Spartans were especially adept in running up high scores this season. The point total of 167 is the highest ever attained by an E. H. S. squad. At the close of the season the squad elected Orland Deputy, halfback, and Edwin Lowry, end, as co-captains of the 1936 team. Jack Snow, end, was chosen on the Eastern Kansas Conference All- Star team, and Deputy and Lowry were chosen on the second all-confer- ence team.

They were taken at the Hutchinson game which was played at Emporia. These pictures are quite good and will serve to instruct future squads. 1611 QUl',N'I'IN IM ?NNIal.l,AN: Iflilill CjRIl"lflTI l: c2Ll.lI'lL'I'l'l.lLkIs., l-16 pounds, S foul ll? inchcs, lfullluacla, 160 pounds, 6 fcct, 3 yu.u's, SCIUUI' 3 years, SUIHUI' ll. ll. -IXXCIR SNOXV: HOXVARU BENSON: lfod, 170 pounds, 6 fcct 2'l inclmcs, 3 ycnrs, lfnd, 189 pounds, 6 f-L'L'l -WL inclmcs, .1 , Scnior ll.

This section of high school athletic recreation is organized so that those boys who wish to play basketball and are not on the regular "A" or "B" basketball squads may play on organized teams which fulfill a regular schedule. Coach Smith, Mr. Lodle, and Mr. James directed and super- vised the contests in the intra-murals this year. At the beginning of the season the boys were divided into two groups, the heavyweights and the lightweights, according to their size. This division puts the boys in equal groups of about the same size and thereby gives everyone an equal chance to do his best, the small as well as the large. Some of the reserves of the "B" squad, who were not required to be at practice every day were allowed to play on these teams. A few of these reserves captained teams in the heavyweight division. On certain days of the week the heavy- weights played their games and on the other days the lightweights played their schedule. Those teams which were competing in the heavyweight division were captained by Wolf, Aldridge, Hunter, Garcia, Diggs, and Gray. Those in the lightweight division were headed by Preston, Kas- sens, LaLoge, Briggs, Carter, and Gasche. In each section two rounds were played with the winners of the first round and the victors of the second round meeting in a championship game. In the first round of the heavyweight schedule, the team captained by Aldridge and consisting of C. Aldridge, Walker, Glick and Wagner finished at the top of the list. In the second round of the heavyweight division the team captained by XVolf and consisting of Axe, Robinson, V. Miller, Sheridan, and Holmes won the honors. In the playoff or championship game, Wolf, the winner of the second round, conquered the Aldridge quintet in a hard fought game 13 to 9. In the first round of the lightweight division, Kassens was the vic- tor, while the team headed by Briggs won the second round title. Due to some difficulties in getting the two winners together, the championship game of this division has not yet been played, as this is written. Those who have watched these games as spectators have witnessed many a good, clean contest and have been fully satisfied. This form of school activity promotes good sportsmanship as well as knowledge and skill in playing the game. The result has been many a close score and a great deal of enjoyment for all those who participated. E651 W'ith only two regulars returning,.Coach Smith had to mold almost an entirely new team. llowever, with the reserve material on hand, an- other championship team was produced.

Even though the Spartans have won only one meet so far this year they have made many good showings. The first meet of the season, a dual meet with Topeka, was lost to the Trojans who were on the long end of S416 to 42 M. On April 6th, the following Tuesday, the annual interclass meet was held. Chase County also was entered in this meet. After the last event the juniors had 67X,, Chase County was second with 49?'f,, the Sophomores third with 2522, and the Seniors last with 25 points. On April 16, the Spartans went to Lawrence to participate in the annual high school meet that is held in connection with the K. U. Relays. The medley relay team, consisting of Smith, Rangel, Snow, and Donnellan, finished second in their heat, and Russell Roth finished second in his heat of the half-mile. ' Saturday, April 24, the Fifth Annual Emporia High Invitation Meet was held. This year it was larger than ever before with twenty-one schools represented. Emporia took only two firsts, the mile relay and the 880 relay. Eureka won the meet with 42 points, Hamilton was second with 5192, Chase County was third with 21, and Emporia tied with Newton for sixth place with 16 points. Outstanding performances of the meet were given by Donaldson of Eureka who won the half-mile in two minutes and six seconds, and Liby of Hamilton who set a new record of fifteen and four-tenths seconds in the high hurdles. The conference meet will be held on May 1, and Coach Smith thinks the Spartans are capable of winning this contest. Following the confer- ence meet will be the regional meet at Topeka.
