Miss HELEN FELTON Secretary to Mr. Richards EM-HI ON A SNOWY NIGHT HE Emporia Senior High School was first called the Garfield building and was erected in 1880. It stood at the same location as our present Senior High, but was much smaller. It was an eight- room building of brick construction. The original faculty consisted of six teachers and the student body of approxi- mately 125 students. At first the course included only three years but was increased to four, when the State Uni- versity standardized Kansas High Schools came into effect. The 6th, 7th and Sth grades were also held in the Garfield building at this time. The people of Emporia voted bonds for the present Senior High building in 1912. Construction began April 2nd and was completed within two years. The formal opening was held May 3, 1914. Much change has taken place since the first building and it will continue to do so in the future. The high school course was divided into Junior and Senior High Schools at this time and the days were divided for them. The Senior High classes met in the mornings and the Junior High in the afternoon. This plan was continued until the completion of the present Junior High building in 1925. The new building was 102 feet by 175 feet with three stories and a full basement. It is of classic architecture and the front entrance has two Ionic columns of Bedford stone. Carthage stone, Tliamond and Vitrified brick backed up with Buffalo paving make the structure of the basement. There are forty rooms, a gymnasium and an auditorium with a seating capacity of 900.

Burk Ron'-Frank Arnold, Phillip French, Doris Arnold, Gerald McGuire, Roy Alderson Ifmrzl Ron'-Bill Miller, Ann Bizal, Marianna W'hite, James NVelch This year the Student Council not only became larger in size, but more important to the student body at large. Doris Arnold was re-elected to the presidency, and Philip French as secretary and treasurer. Meetings of the Council were held in the foods class dining room the first Tuesday of each month. The faculty who attended the Council meeting included Mr. Brown, Miss Hamer, Mr. Lodle, Miss Hancock, and Miss Jackson. The three officers were representatives from the Girl Reserve and Hi-Y Clubs. The Sophomore class spoke through James W'elch and Marianna White, the Juniors through Roy Alderson and Ann Bizal, and the Seniors were represented by Frank Arnold and Bill Miller. The total membership was nine students. Although the main duty of the Council, continued to be furthering school activities and performing services such as taking charge of holiday decorations, Thanksgiving donations, etc., the social aspect was not neglected. XVith the exception of the Junior- Senior Prom, the Girl Reserve Valentine Ten Dance, all other school parties were under the Councilis direction. 10 Girl Reserves . . . "To find and give the best" has been the purpose of over three hundred girls this past year who have been members of the Girl Reserve Club, the high school or- ganization of the Y. W. C. A. Twenty-two Girl Reserves returned from their re- spective summer camps, Camp Bide-a-Wee at Wichita, Camp Brewster at Omaha, Neb., and Camp Wood at Elmdale, filled with great enthusiasm, and the club activities began in earnest at the Setting-Up Conference held in the Y. W. C. A. in September. A second con- ference was held in January, again at the Y. W. C. A., from Friday after school until Saturday afternoon. In order to be financially independent, the club carried on several money-making drives, including the annual magazine sale, candy sales at football games and after school, the G. R.-Hi-Y benefit play in October, and the collection of dues. The theme was chosen to predominate club activities. "Stars" was chosen for the theme and each letter stood for a trait of character that each girl should strive to attain. S for Sincerity, T for Tolerance, A for Aspiration, R for Reverence, and S for Service. The collection of money, food and clothing for the welfare at Thanksgiving was left for the G. R.'s and at Christmas the Service Committee had a party for underprivileged first grade children. They also helped to decorate the school for the holidays. Another activity was the Christmas party preceded by a large group of girls going caroling at the hospitals. A new feature, a Valentine Tea Dance, proved to be a success.

The 1938-39 Junior-Senior Hi-Y Club has had an average year as a whole, the officers and members co-operating to push the membership up to about 60. This year's programs held forth much variety and interest. Some of the themes and topics heading the list were: Fun and Hobby programs, religious and Sunday School relationships, athletics, sportsmanship, and international relations. A series of pro- grams was given to the study of Boy and Girl Relationships during the second semester. Some of the prominent Emporians who were guest speakers prior to March 14, were Rev. Allison, Supt. Richards, Rev. Large, Dr. Mosher, and Dr. Munger, and also Rev. Choguill. The G. R.-Hi-Y play, 'iBegin1Ier's Luckf, given last fall was an outstanding feature in the school activitiesg other activities are being planned for the spring semester. The club met twice a month. May the Hi-Y clubs of next year uphold the Hi-Y motto and have even more a suc- cessful year. OFFICERS President .,.,,,,, , L .- .,... GERALD MCGUIRE Vice-Pmidmf L .... .

It's time for another edition of the Re-Echo to remind us of the swell times we,x'e had during the PLISE year in the athletic, music, science, and social departments of our 'ole alma mater. At the first of the year the editor, namely Mariorie Fleming, made up the "dummy,', or the skeleton of the book, and our loyal business manager submitted the financial esti- mates. They were aided by their assistants. The staff was chosen early in the year and began active Work at the beginning of the second semester. Pictures of the different activities were taken and the kodak editors, Vic Liflansky and Jack Arnold, took snapshots of the different groups. So now our work is done and we have only this book to show for the many hard hours spent in the Re-Echo Corner. Other members of the staff have contributed much to the annual and deserve a great deal of credit. The 1939 staff is composed of: Editor, Marjorie Fleming, Business Manager, George Goldsmith, Assistant Editor, Charlotte Lewis, Assistant Business Manager, Bert Eindlyg Girls, Sports Editor, Juanita Kraus, Boys' Sports Editor, Jim Vfarreng Calendar Editor, Anita Graves, Kodak Editors, Victor Liflansky and -lack Arnold, Organization Editors, Victoria Trusler, Typists, lone Roemer and Geraldine McGuire, Junior Representatives are Maxine Davidson, Editor, and Donald Knopf, Business Manager. 14 Echo... , The Echo Staff with Jack Wichert as Editor, Kathryn Brockhouse as Assistant Editor, and Virginia Madsen as Business Manager, has put out an unsually good paper this year. The issues that are particularly remembered are the Christmas edition, April Fool edition, and the Hi-Y number, and the G. R. issue. There were several new features this year. Some are: Wfhat Do You Think?, Peg Sees the Stars, What Not Column, and Noticeahle Nothings. Every Monday after school the Echo Staff met and studied pointers given on correct spelling, writing leads, writing heads, proof-reading and copy reading. This yearis Emporia High Echo has been one of the best papers ever published at the high school. The columns and stories have shown both knowledge and skill. +++ G I R L R E S E R V E S Q Q , fC07lfilIIll'tl from Page 113 Miss Hamer was assisted by the cabinet in directing the activities of the club.

The Burrough Girl Reserve Club of the Emporia Senior High School was organized ff.I0l1fillllt'll 011 Page 16J 15 N Debate . . . With Mr. McCune as coach, the Emporia Debate team engaged in a full season this year. The debate team entered 121 debates with other schools. Seventeen of these debates were non-decision rounds. Of the remaining 104 rounds Emporia won 63. Emporia placed second in debate at both the conference and district tournaments. The debate team placed third at the invitation tournament at Topeka. Two of the Emporia teams at Topeka were undefeated. Emporia also entered the state tournament at Lawrence. The outstanding honor of the season came when Jack Wichert and George Groh were asked to debate in an exhibition debate at the Kansas University Debate Institute on November 26. The topic for debate this year was, "Resolved, That the United States Should Form an Alliance with Great Britain." Emporia attended debate tournaments at the following towns: Arkansas City, Reading, Coffeyville, Topeka, Wellington, C. of E., Topeka, Salina, and Lawrence.

II.. October 7, 1926. The organization started as a Y. W. C. A. club called the "Ambilla" which was in 1919. Miss Ruby Lucas was the first president of the club. Since this club was separate from the other G. R. club, Miss Margaret Wray, then secretary of the Y. W. C. A., thought it should have a name. She suggested to the club members that it be named after some Negro artist. The president of the club then, QCUIIHIIIILHI on Pagv 215 16 Dramatics . . . CLUB As the dramatics classes were overcrowded this year, a new feature was installed, a dramatics club which met every Wednesday after school. The officers of this club were Geraldine McGuire, President, Phyllis Hughes, Vice-President, George Goldsmith, Secretary and Treasurer. In the two sets of classes, the ones meeting on Monday and Wednesday for beginners and Tuesday and Thursday for the more experienced, the pupils studied diction, voice improvement, characterization, pantomimes and emotions. Several one-act plays were presented in chapel. They were: "Miss Mobrey's Big Moment,', "Made to Order Christmas," "Mrs. Harper,s Bazaar," and "The First Dress Suitf' The G. R.-Hi-Y benefit play was "Beginner,s Luck." The leads in it were Doris Arnold, Frank Arnold, Phyllis Hughes, Charlotte Lewis, and Bettyanne Atherton. Another new feature connected with the Dramatics Club was a 3-act play entitled "The Clutching Claw"-a gripping mystery. Bettyanne Atherton and Fred Cravens took the leads in this. The very popular collegiate play, "Spring Fever,', was chosen as the Senior play. The leads in this were Doris Arnold, George Goldsmith, Charlotte Lewis, Vic Liflansky and John Ross Karr. I 18 Latin Club . . . This year We have had three Latin Clubs, which held their meetings during the Latin class periods. The meeting, every three weeks, consisted of a program which was begun by a roll call of Latin words or anything chosen by the committee in charge. Then reports and games were presented. They were usually chosen appropriate to the season, such as Saturnalia, which corresponds to our Christmas, Psyche and Cupid, as our Valentine's Day along with reports on the Roman Depression compared to our day and many others. The social part of the club consisted of a skating party at the grove, an informal party at the Y. W. C. A., and a spring picnic. This year no dues were taken but a, small assessment was made for the picture. At Thanksgiving time the classes each adopted a family and gave food for a dinner. The clubs enjoyed this service so much that they adopted the same families for Christmas. This time they bought food, money used for clothing and toys for each family. All the decorations were voluntary and no assessments were made. This proved to be a very worthwhile project that was enjoyed by everyone. Each club elected its own officers. The following were elected for the first se- mester in the hour two club called Societas Latina: Doris Mae Addington, President, Joyce Van Gundy, Vice-President, Dan McClenney, Secretary, C. S. Clay, Treasurer, and Pat McGuire, Reporter. These were elected for the second semester: Barbara Thomas, President, Dean Romine, Vice-President, Jean Saffell, Secretary, Laurel Fry, Treasurer, Dorothy Lou Phillips, Reporter.

GIRLS' GLEE CLUB The Girls' Glee Club, under the able direction of Miss Hopkins, has done some fine work this year. They participated in the "Christmas Cantatan and the Music Contest in the spring. Several Glee Club mem- bers belonged to the All-State Chorus at Emporia State and attended the Southwest Kansas Music Festival held at Xvichita. Miss Hopkins and the Glee Club worked on two selections for the Spring Music Contest. The songs were: "A Bird Flew,', by Clokeyg "The Lord Is My Shepherdf, by Schubert. We know that the members of the Glee Club enjoyed working with Miss Hopkins this year as much as Miss Hopkins has enjoyed working with them. The girls in Glee Club are: Winifred Donnellan, Virginia McKinley, Marcia Hurt, Fern Tompkins, Juanita Palmer, Emily Hughes, Geraldine McGuire, Geraldine McConnell, Maudine Jones, Charlotte Lewis, Ernes- tine Shawgo, Marion Wilson, Phyllis Hughes, Doris Golden, Harriette Richardson, Shirley Taylor, Marjorie Jane Horton, Mary Rosacker, Car- lene Macurdy, Virginia Sue Anderson, Doris Arnold, Bettyanne Atherton, Betty Beitz, Violet Benson, Kathryn Brockhouse, Connie Brown, Mildred Colwell, Dorothy Conklin, Ruth Anne Crumley, Esther Davis, Evelyn Davis, Vernelle Field, Anita Graves, Helen Graves, Iretta Green, Virginia Gunsolly, Henrietta Heaney, Mary Lucile Jones, Dorothy Kent, Esther Lary, Francis Latimer, Alma Mackey, Dorothy Marcellus, Ina Lou Mc- Kim, Lenora Morris, Betty Jane Newcomer, Beverly Jean O'Bryhim, Lida Jane Peters, Madlyn Pomeroy, Helen Louise Price, Elaine Sheridan, Betty Lou Skinner, Patricia Slack, Grace Slead, Betty Smith, Margaret Snow, Dorothy Sowerby, Sue Thompson, Victoria Trusler, Etta Turner, Beu- berta Tyler, Dorothy Warner, Violet Wilson. . . . BOYS' C-LEE CLUB Miss Hopkins did excellent Work this year with her Boys' Glee Club class. The boys did fine Work on "Barbary" and "The Sea Gypsyf' both of which were sung in the Music Contest. We are sure the boys enjoyed singing these songs as well as Miss Hop- kins enjoyed teaching them. The new program selections for the vocal solos which were sung in the music contest were "Open Roady' and "Give a Man a Horse He Can Ride." The Boys' Quartet also did fine work this year. They sang "Standing in the Need of Prayeru in the contest. +++ GIRL RESERVES . . . lcv fffififf aff liflffl Miss Bonita Davis, wrote to Washington, D. C., corresponding with Miss Nannie Bur- rough, a well-known missionary Worker, asking if the club might be named after her. Miss Burrough gave her consent, so the new name and constitution was adopted October 7, 1926. The Junior High School girls worked with the Senior girls making a total of twenty-three members. The club now has nine members. The officers are: President, Blanche Hunter, vice- president, Annabelle Sheldon, secretary and treasurer, Doris Golden. The members are: Annabelle Holt, XVinifred Henderson, Lucy Wilson, Ruby Harness, Evelyn Allen, and Barbara Ray. Sponsor, Ethel Lyle. It was very hard for a club this small to have many activities. One of the largest activities is the "pioneer dinner," given annually for the elderly colored people of the town. Food sales, socials and programs are given to take care of finances. Programs are given in the club and speakers are invited to participate. The club has helped in many social activities. 21 ,- N4 1. ' ! . M i .V J , ' . v . . SMALL GRCJUPS ,jfld .j" ,,7 , , -f The small groups of the music department have been very popular this year. The Boys' Quartet, which was composed of Scott Mouse, Ray Barnes, Paul Wolf and Harold Robohn, and were accompanied by Jim XVarren, sang well in the State Music Contest and received an excellent rating. The mixed quartet, Ruth Crumley, Elaine Sheridan, Scott Mouse and Paul Wfolf, received superior and the Girls' Quartet, Marcia Hurt, Charlotte Lewis, Elaine Sheridan and Esther Davis received a highly superior rating. This year for the first time, a girls, "swing trio" was organized which was composed of Dorothy Kent, Marcia Hurt and Charlotte Lewis. They were accompanied by the music instructor, Miss Ruth Hopkins. Beside school activities this group sang for other town organizations and made weekly broadcasts. Groups of this type are always in demand and our school can be justly proud of their record. 22 ii t' . BAND 4 ,ff Wfith the fine supervision of their leader, Mr. Ormond Parker, the band has been well represented at parades, basketball games, always in full swing and in full dress uniform at all football games. The band, as well as smaller groups, has been a dependable means of entertainment at assembly. Each year in April both Band and Orchestra, with many soloists and small groups, take part in the Spring Music Festival at the Kansas State Teachers College in Emporia, representing the school in one of the most important competitive interscholastic meets of the year. QThey ranked superior last year.j The Band will always remember and appreciate the fine eo-operation of the people of Emporia, including: The Band Parent Club, which was organized to help the band find ways of raising money for new band uniforms, the five service clubs who made our Jabberwoc possible, the Women who helped with the food sale, and above all the basketball game which was for our benefit. The Head Drum Major was Zelda Mae Renfro and assistant twirlers were Mary Elizabeth Evans, Mary Lou McCullough, and Darlene Johnson. ?' - JJ ag...-.4 . . .

The Emporia chapter of Future Farmers of America was organized September 28 by the Council Grove chapter and chartered October 3rd by the Kansas Association. This new group in our high school is part of the National Organization of farm boys studying Vocational Agriculture. The true vocational spirit is embodied in the F. F. A. motto: "Learning to do, Doing to learn, Earning to live, Living to serve." The F. F. A. emblem is made up of five symbols, the owl, the plow, and the rising sun, within the cross section of an ear of corn which is surrounded by the American eagle. Upon the face- of the em- J. W. 'fntoit blem appear also the words 'KVocational Agriculture" Vonlfiouul IlH?'fCIllfIlV'l' and fhg letfgfg F, A, The owl is symbolic of wisdom and knowledge, the plow is the symbol of labor and tillage of the soilg the sun is emblematic of progress and the new day that will dawn when all farmers are the product of Vocational Agriculture schools, and have learned to co-operateg the cross section of the ear of corn is indicative of the national scope of the organization as is also the American eagle. The official colors of the organization are gold and national blue. The purposes for which this organization is formed are as follows: 1. To develop competent, aggressive rural and agricultural leadership. 2. To create and nurture a love of country life. CCo11!iu11wI 011 Page 461 i 25 Industrial Arts . . . This year, as every other year, the industrial arts department has turned out many artistic and useful pieces of workmanship. This course has helped many students in originality, designing ability, and the value of working materials. The wood working department seems to be the most popular, where beautiful tables, lamps, beds, chests, cabinets, pedestals, book cases, foot stools, and numerous other articles are made. This de- partment offers separate divisions consisting of manual training 1 and 2, wood turning 1 and 2, and advanced cabinet making. Here safety first is stressed strongly and Mr. George Lodle, instructor of industrial arts, can proudly say his department has one of the finest records concerning accidents in the state of Kansas. Mechanical drawing and architectural drawing are the other two di- visions of the industrial arts department. Here plans and designs of projects are studied by students who some day may become architects or engineers. E5 S nior Class I9 3 9 The class of 1959 is the largest class to graduate in the history of Emporia High. lt is a class that has excelled in every field of endeavor. A class with many outstanding students, dramatists, journalists, athletes, musicians, debaters and personalities. Since entering Emporia High as Sophomores, in the fall of 1936, this class has played a vital part in the community as well as the school. The Senior class is presenting this annual and has also done a large part in editing and publishing the Echo, the school paper. This class has par- ticipated in many other extra-curricular activities. The president of the Student Council is a member of this class, as are the presidents of the G. R. and Jr.-Sr. Hi-Y. The Senior Banquet, held on January 21st at the Broadview Hotel, was the outstanding social event of the school year, combined with the Junior-Senior Prom, which was held in the Lowther Junior High School gymnasium.

The Senior Class of 1939 was highly honored to have the eminent scholar of celebrated fame, Mr. Gerald McGuire, present the following solilioquoy at the Senior Banquet: Mr. Toastmaster, Members of the High School Faculty, and also Members of the Intelligentsia, Provi- dently named Seniors: When I contemplate the hours spent under the intellectual tutelage of this esteemed faculty, my emotions rise to fever heat, which by interpretation means "I am very happy." On the other hand when I look into the faces of these my Senior Classmates and realize it is my duty to present an instrument which forecasts the demise of our class as Seniors, my emotions drop almost to the depths of despondency. If any of you have a prescription that would connect these two poles of emo- tionalism which are at this moment tearing my soul, you might greatly improve the pleasure of the hour and rescue a fellow classmate from a perplexing situation. A few more short weeks and the Senior Class of ,39 will be a memory and its members will become freshmen of that long roll of honored citizens, the alumni of Emporia High School. But dropping the soliloquy, 1 have a rather important task to discharge. The Seniors have zealously accumulated a large supply of good intentions and some worn out idealisms. We also have a supply of shelf-worn jokes and wise sayings which are of no further use to us and without any reluctance whatever we have arranged to bequeath our joint assets to our school, its classes and faculty. Inasmuch as they have no value whatever, it is a pleasure to give them away. We charge our friends, the Faculty and Board of Education, with the task of preserving and keeping them for future students of this school, the accumulations which we have carefully assembled and be- queathed so far as we could, where they would do the least good. Note carefully and do not forget: We, the Seniors of the Class of 1939, being-some of us--of sound mind and all of us of sound bodies, on this day of January 21, in the year of our Lord 1939, upon this occasion of relinquishing, abdieating, and departing from our hallowed positions in the high school, do hereby upon this aforesaid day bequeath, bestow, donate, give, and will the following named articles, possessions, and goods to become the full property to be held in fee by our most worthy successors to have and to hold until such a time as they may see fit. To the members of the Faculty we will our numerous wads of chewed gum, hoping that they will in- struct the succeeding Seniors as to the beautiful sentiments expressed by this monument of the past. To the Juniors we leave our indifference to the frequent quizzes given by our beloved teachers, and our nonchalance to their commands. To the Sophomores we bestow our ability to look wise and to know the psychological moment to do nothing. The following individual bequests are hereby set forth in this our last will and testament: Doris and Frank Arnold gladly will their abilities to succeed in anything they undertake to Maurine Davidson and Rex Cvray. Mack Davis bequeaths to Ted Obley his ability to be teacher's pet, and his ability to skip school and get away with it. Sue Thomson leaves her sweet personality and self control to Bonnie Sorenson. Lawrence Simpson donates his 'fway with women" to Jerry Tholen. Margaret Snow must leave behind her little shovel which scoops the cases, new and old-past, present, and future. She has expressed as her parting wish that it be given to anyone who can fill her shoes- size 7Z. Paul Wolf and Carrie Johnson with deep regret endow that spot by the library as a sanctuary for ardent lovers. fCOIIffIlIlPl1 on Page 543 41 Honor ff Society + First Row- 1Left to Right!

The annual Senior Banquet, which was held in the grill room of the Hotel Broadview, January 21, was attended by about 200 students and by members of the faculty. The programs, which were made into small books and the nut cups into small bookcases, carried out the theme of the banquet, "Literary Titles," and used the class colors, coral and royal blue. After the dinner, the toastmaster, Frank Arnold, introduced the fol- lowing program: "Magic World of Music," which was a violin quartet composed of Dorothy Green, Wanda Lang, Hazel Shaw and Maxine Dobson, played "The Spanish Dancef, Bert Findley gave a very unique talk entitled "We," comparing our careers to an airplane flight.

Due to the conflicting dates it was impossible to have a 'QCoronation Dance" so the preliminaries were held and the fol- lowing candidates were chosen: Bert Findly, Walt Sheridan, Delbert Sloyer and Harold Dody. Zelda Mae Renfro, Charlotte Lewis, Doris Arnold and Bettyanne Atherton. When the final election was held the results were kept a secret until the hook was put out. The can- didates were chosen on merits of popularity, leadership, and personality. The two students representative of these Were: Zelda Mae Renfro and Harold Dody. To be chosen King and Queen of a school is a very high honor and the lucky candidates should be proud of their position and the students proud of their choice. 1 1 p, dj Junior Class What can be accomplished in a large organization with- out a few leaders to bear the responsibilities and to present a colorful outlook for their followers? This question was considered when the Junior Class chose their officers who have led us through a happy and successful year. Presi- dent, Roy Aldersong Vice-President, Bill Martin, Secretary, Ted Obleyg Treasurer, Harriet Richardson. The Junior Class, who presented various types of talent, were represented in basketball, football, track, musical or- ganizations, and other clubs of the school. They also show great promise of being a worthy Senior Class next year. The biggest event of the year was the Prom given for the Seniors. This was the second annual Prom and was well attended by both Juniors and Seniors. We hope these dances will continue as an annual project. As the year draws to a close we, the junior Class, extend our heartiest wishes to all members of the graduating class and say that we will do our best to live up to your excel- lent standard.

They found that this was not to be so in Senior High, so they soon settled down with real interest in school affairs. The Girl Reserve and Hi-Y organizations claimed their share of the new recruits. The Echo Staff drew the interest of many, while others became librarians and also debaters. Still others, members of the class who had acquired their inward confidence, showed their talent and ability by trying out for the glee clubs and the various E. H. S. sports. The honor roll was not lacking in the names of Sophomores. Several times the honor roll was headed by a Sophomore. The Sophomores elected as class offices James Welch, Presidentg Pat McGuire, Vice-Presidentg Lois Pirtle, Secretaryg and Dorothy Hudson, Treasurer. All in all, we mean to say that the Sophomores have regained their dignity and intend to carry bravely on, along with the Juniors and Seniors. They have taken part in all activities and expect to maintain their now essential part in Em-Hi. They have plans to become a successful group throughout their remaining school years. The sponsors of the Sophomore Class have given their whole-hearted co-operation to the class, and we want them to know that it has been greatly appreciated. The Sophomore sponsors for this year have been: Mr. Lodle, Miss Shirley, Miss Coverdill, Mr. Bloxom, Miss Keeney, Mr. Wfilliams, Miss Ice and Mr. McCune. 54' A J 9' 1' VT- J if 1 W- n SOPHOMORI2 CLASS PICTURE + + + S E N I Q R W I L L , , , CCOnlirmm1 from Page 4U Harold Dody, our stubby basketball center, deals out proportionate shares of his height to Marcus Morrow and jack Sheen. This is a tall story. W'alt Sheridan hopefully endows the ,59 footballers with the stuff that made him all-state this year- Coach Smith hopes so, too. Don't look now, but Barbara Campbell leaves her blushes as well as her crushes to Ina Lou McKim and Dorothy Lou Phillips. Betty Jane Newcomer leaves her beautiful black tresses to Gloria Brinkman-or some dissatisfied blonde. Jack Heins, one of the S7 varieties, leaves his obligations to Bill Campbell, one of the soup boys. Our peppy cheerleaders vacate their positions with the hope that those who possess strong lungs, loud voices, and acrobatic contortions will take their places. Marguerite Rowhuff solemnly requests that her parking space be reserved for some rural student who drives to school. Lee Way'n1an who climbed the ladder to success by tooting his own horn-in the band of course- bequeaths his licorice stick to any one who can horn in. Incidentally, he's taking Lois Corson with him. Lila Schwindt and Patricia Gangwer leave their ability to make good grades to Lewis Stout and Howard Anderson-hoping for the best. Be it hereby known and declared that Floyd Browning does enrich his successor with that great big spot he occupies in Dorothy Kent's heart. Wilfred Holt leaves his grand voice to Galen Milsap. The Seniors of the 1958-39 debate squad have nothing to extend to their successors except good will. Itls an ill wind that blows nobody good. Jim Wzxi'ren is glad he is in a position to give something. He wills his knowledge of Spanish to some unsuspecting underclassman. Berniece Hillis leaves her school spirit and athletic prowess to Mary Susan Baldwin. Fred Cravens bestows his childish voice and eager ways upon Roy Alderson. Elmer Keech, the Mathematical wizard, bequeaths his knowledge of said subject to one whom Mr. Bloxom may desire to designate. Marjorie Fleming and George Goldsmith bequeath to the entire high school their super '29 Re-Echo. Zelda Mae Renfro, our strutting major domo, wills her step and stride to Mary Lou McCullough. The will committee-namely, Helen Holdredge, Betty Crabtree, Patty Slack, George Groh and John Ross Karr, willingly bequeath to next year's will committee their headaches, chewed pencil stubs, scratch paper and Bromo Seltzer. And so in closing this, our last will and testament, the entire Senior Class wishes to thank the Faculty for its kindness and forgivingness to "Forgive Us Our Trespassesf' 54 SOPHCJMORE SPONSORS . . .

The club has been very successful this year under the sponsorship of Miss Ruthe Cross and Mr. George Lodle. It has been more active and enthusiastic than ever before. The officers of the club were: President, Berniece Hillis, Vice-President, Juanita Kraus, and Secretary and Treasurer, Dorothy Kent. The cheerleaders were: Charlotte Lewis, Winifred Donnellan, Marcia Hurt, Geraldine McGuire, Bill Miller, Victor Liflan- sky and Richard Keifer.

The Spartans won all but one conference 1 O ' 2 , battle. They won several non-conference games V V L with some of the toughest grid teams in the state. Vlbu T TW' Z Emporia continuously ran up high scores, in spite of Q, . a 7-7 tie against El Dorado on Thanksgiving Day. Out of nine games played the Spartans won five, lost ii' ' L three, tied one. Harold Robohn seemed to give the A crowd the greatest thrills, with his side stepping, Eif ' stiff arming and runs for large gains. Passes from Browning to Corey and Goodwin were always touch- down possibilities. Sloycr's power drives through the lines seldom failed to net a few yards. Harold Kent was another dependable back. Ridenour on the line played his heart out for the colors of E. H. S. Sheridan, our All-State center, was assisted by Walker and Armstrong on the line. Emporia placed three on the Eastern Kansas All-Conference team-Robohn, Sheridan, and Jenkins. The season started off with Burlington victorious over Emporia 6-2. After which we sought revenge by defeating Eureka 13-0. Never failing to score in any single quar- ter Emporia trounced Manhattan 38-0. We then journeyed to Lawrence to win our second conference victory by a score of 19-0. Then the well-known Topeka jinx got the best of us again even after a parade and rally up-town, which blocked traffic for blocks. We dropped the game 32-7. Most of our student body and number of towns- people were on board a special train that took us to Ottawa where we handed them a 7-0 defeat in the mud. Playing terrific ball the Wfichita North crew pushed over one touchdown to defeat Emporia 6-0. Then came the Chanute game in which we sent them home with a 34-0 defeat. The Thanksgiving Day game with El Dorado ended in a 7-7 tie.

Bill Barber was unable to compete on doetor's ordersg Walt Sheridan and Pete Robinson were eliminated in the middle of the season because of graduationg and State Tournament hopes were ruined when a mumps epidemic caught Delbert Sloyer and Theron Kassensg but Coach Smith and players are to be congratulated on their successful efforts. The non-conference engagements were featured by the defeat of the strong Wytln- dotte High team of Kansas City, Kansas. These encounters resulted in low, close scores, hard fought games, and several spectacular finishes. The Spartans were victorious in six of these games and were defeated in three. The highlight of the season was the defeat of Lawrence and Manhattan on successive nights which enabled the Spartans to capture first place in the Eastern Kansas Confer- ence. The feature of conference play was the seventh straight defeat of the Topeka Trojans on the Spartan court. Short handed because of the mumps six players were drafted from the "BU team to fill out the tournament squad which also included the remaining "A" team players, Dody, Goldsmith, Browning and Campbell. This hastily organized Red and Black team out-fought Olathe and Ottawa to reach the finals of the Regional Tournament at Ot- tawa only to be defeated by Ward High of Kansas City, Kansas, and so for the first time in seven years the Emporia Spartans were not represented in the State Tournament.
