HE school year and class of
1939-4-0 have come and gone
leaving their mark on the annals of
dear old E. H. S. It has been our aim
in this Re-Echo to present to you a
lively and interesting account of this
eventful year. Our photographers
have been busy taking pictures and
our staff taking notes since last Sep-
tember, both doing their utmost to
secure the best material possible to
make this a book you will all be
proud of. It is our sincere hope that
you will gain as much joy and satis-
faction in reading this book as we
have in compiling it.

Board of Education
An organization which is truly responsible in many ways for the success of Emporia
Senior High School is the Board of Education.
Although they do not appear often in public, these six members meet faithfully
throughout the years to discuss plans for the betterment of our school.
The entire student body and faculty appreciate what they have done and only hope
for more years like the year of 1939-40.

Sefrefury to the Board
Deep-seated and dominant in
human nature and fundamental to
all real progress is the desire of parents
to make life richer and better for
W- M- RICHARDS their children. The American people
have placed the public school first as
a means for accomplishing this end. Their faith in public education has caused them
willingly to levy taxes, to build school buildings, to purchase equipment and to employ
teachers. Many parents have made great personal sacrifices to keep their children in
school. Schools have not always been as good as parents desired. But in times of
prosperity and in times of adversity, during years of drought or flood and during years
of abundant crops schools have been maintained.
May every pupil who attends the Emporia Public School and every teacher who serves
keep the faith of those who have made public education a part of the heritage of
W. M. RICHARDS,
Superintendent of Schools.

Secretary to Mr. Richards
RICE E. BROWN
Each year some two hundred or more young men and women graduate from the
Emporia High School. The completion of a high school course means more today than
ever before. Practically every position of importance requires at least high school
graduation. We hope the three years which the members of this 1940 graduating class
have spent in Emporia High School have been happy and profitable ones. Whatever
you plan to do after graduation, we want you to know that our best wishes go with you.

All members of the student body wish to express their appreciation to the loyal instuc-

There were two new teachers this year, Mrs. Jaquith and Mr. Murphy in the English
and Commerce departments respectively. Faculty meetings were held once a month
to discuss plans for making Emporia High a more progressive school. The work is gen-
erally done in committees. The National Honor Society has a standing committee with
Miss May Hancock as acting president. A new committee has been added this year
regarding the point system. Miss Jennie P. Douglas is president.
With the beginning of the fall term, Emporia High was honored to be the first school
in the state to begin a survey known as the "Co-operative Studies of Secondary School
Standards." The entire faculty participated in this survey.
Miss Hamer, Dean of Girls, acts as the girls' representative on the administrative
staff of the school. She is always glad to help the girls with their home, school, and
personal problems. She also acts as director of the social program of the school and as
chairman of the faculty sponsors of the Girl Reserves.
Mr. Brogan is assistant to the principal and also teaches in the Commerce department.
He aids in sponsoring many school projects and is always ready to help with something
new. The school would have a hard time carrying on Without these two members of

In the year of 1937, a large group of bewildered sophomores began their senior high
school careers. Since that time a few have dropped out, but newcomers have joined
the class to take their places.
This group has developed into the graduating class of 1940. Its members have
shown their outstanding ability in many fields: scholarship, athletics, music, debate,
journalism, dramatics or any other activities. Thirty-three seniors were elected to the
National Honor Society.
The seniors have carried out their duties well and have done their best to promote
good will and student cooperation Within the school. The underclassmen will do well
to follow their example in the years to come. .
The first class meeting was held in September and officers were elected. The presi-
dent appointed several committees to carry out the work during the year. The main
social event was the senior banquet, which was held at the Broadview Hotel on January
20. Following the banquet, the juniors presented the seniors with a prom in the gym-
nasium. The class also planned several social events for the last week of school when
the seniors are excused from classes.
This class will have the privilege of introducing two new features during commence-
ment week. They will Wear caps and gowns, and the Baccalaureate and Commence-
ment exercises will be held in the new city auditorium.

Toastmaster Richard McAdoo
The annual senior banquet was held in the Grill Room of the Broad-
view Hotel, January 20. The menu and decorations were designed to
fit in with the theme, "Just Imagine."
After the meal all eyes were turned toward Richard McAdoo, toast-
master, who introduced the program. The theme centered on the
thought of descendants of the class of 1940 returning to the forsaken
land of Emporia in a spaceship. LaVelle Smith, Georgialee Francis, Mary
Freeman, Phillip French, and Dorothy Kent appeared from the large
spaceship which decorated the stage and discovered the sole-remaining
Spartan, Jerry Tholen, dressed as the real "Sparty." He delivered the
class history in quite a notable manner considering his obvious antiquity.
As soon as he staggered off the stage, the entire class sang a senior song
written by Maurine Davidson and Gloria Brinkman.
Roy Alderson, Virginia Gunsolly, Virginia Hagan, and Bill Martin
presented the class prophecy and Donald Knopf read the Senior Will, as-
sisted by Betty Hildebrand and Violet Wilson. These were both highly
amusing and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The class was also enter-
tained by a flute trio consisting of Helen Morgan, Ray Barnes, and Bill
Kells. To close the program LaVelle Smith led the class in a song of his
own composing. Then everyone adjourned to the Senior High School
to attend a prom given by the juniors.
We, the members of the Class of 1940, of the Senior High School,
Emporia, Kansas, being of sound and deposing mind and memory and
not acting under duress, menace, fraud, or under influence of any person
or persons whomsoever, do make, publish, and declare this our last testa-
ment in the manner following to-wit:
To the faculty we leave our chewed gum and our privilege to chew it
in class, hoping that they will instruct the seniors of next year in this
beautiful art so well developed by our class.
To the underclassmen we leave our lofty ideals, desire for higher
learning, our friendly manners and, last but not least, our ability to
remain indifferent to the many quizzes to which we have been exposed.
We realize that we have made a most remarkable record in these four
years of high school and hope the underclassmen will do their best not to
mar the perfection of it.
Also the senior class wills and bequeaths to the following individuals
various valuables which we trust they will respect and honor till death
or duty intervenes:
Gloria Brinkman and Virginia Hagan leave to next year's Echo staff
their wit and wisdom to be carefully distributed through the issues of
Charles Pratt give up his chair in the fifth hour study hall to Lawrence
Hoover, who is a more silent sleeper.
Bill Collins and Louis Krueger reluctantly leave their technique in dis-
playing manly charms to jack Woodworth and Paul Kempker.
Mary jane Moore takes Bill Duncan with her but allows her cute ways
to linger behind and be given to Dora Mae Addington.
"Shine" McKinley and Margaret Rues, leave their jump and jive to "Corney"
Cornwell and "Dunner', MeClenny.
Bob Lodle and Bill Campbell regret that they cannot take all the fairer sex with them, however, they
willingly leave their athletic ability in care of Coach Sm'th h d' 'd ' i
Norma Jones silently turns her quiet manner over to Bill Robertson.
Bill Howard and Lawrence Eisenhauer willingly give and bestow their height and weight to the Clapp
brothers to be divided equally between them.
The leadership that has been deposited in the Davidson twins falls into the hands of the capable new
Those two little swingsters,

Helen Arndt lets the sophomores have her winning ways with the teachers. We don't know, but we
think they will need them.
Eugene Grissom turns over his casual manners and his beauty to any of the poor boys who were less
Anne Bizal and Doris Madison think the underclassmen will be in need of their knowledge, so they
generously leave it for the benefit of the student body.
Bonnie Stanley bequeaths her hair to be divided among those poor unfortunate boys with German
Minnie Schmidt thoughtfully hands over to the juniors who will endeavor to learn typing next year
the use of her nimble fingers.
Personalities such as Lilah Suttles' and Dorothy Warner's are left to those who feel they need them.
Don Knopf and Bill Martin reluctantly leave behind them many broken hearts, hoping next year's class
will produce a Romeo to repair the damage done.
Roy Bassett wills his flashy camera to C. S. Clay and expects him to carry on in his place.
Norbert Fladung wants his football ability transferred to some deserving person who will assure more
E. H. S. victories. '
Margaret Burris and Abner Vickery leave their sweet companionship to Margaret Jean Fleming and
Phillip French gives his debating ability to Tom Groh, but We doubt if anyone else could talk so much
and say so little in such a short time, or should we say a long time?
Anna I-lolt's athletic ability is to be kept for her sister, Florence.
Wayne Smith leaves his skating ability to Wayne Jolly. Better guard it closely, Jolly, or he might
want it back.
All of our hitherto unmentioned traits of character: our strength, intelligence, and beauty, together
with all odds and ends, we have placed in numerous large boxes to be kept safely until the fall term of
1940. At the first assembly of the school year, in the presence of the entire student body, our administra-
tor, Mr. Rice E. Brown, shall fairly and equitably distribute these treasures to the eagerly awaiting
The foregoing instrument, was at the date hereof, signed, sealed, and published as and declared to be

One of the most important events of the school year is the election of certain mem-
bers of the senior class to the National Honor Society. The qualifications for mem-
bership in this society are based on scholarship, leadership, character, and service.
Seniors must be in the upper third of the graduating class in scholarship to be eligible
This year for the first time the senior student body voted on the list of those who
were eligible. This vote was taken to find out who the students themselves thought
were deserving of belonging to this organization.
On March 20, a recognition service Was held in assembly for the new members. The
service was conducted by members of the 1939 chapter of the Honor Society with
XJ Herbert Gould
Vera Louise Irwin
Patricia Gangwer as master of ceremonies. Reverend O. E. Allison, of the First Metho-
dist Church, was the speaker.
The banquet was held April 30 at the Broadview Hotel. The theme was "Our
Neighbors." The table decorations and programs were Mexican style and the place
cards were miniature totem poles. Every member either took part in the program or
worked on a committee to plan the dinner.
The officers elected by this group at their first meeting are: president, Donald Knopfg
vice-president, Betty Melntoshg secretary, Francis Latimer, treasurer, Harriet Richard-
Senior ,M M
Prom TT e
To climax the senior banquet in grand style, the juniors presented
the seniors with a prom in the gym.. The Hawaiian decorations were
a bit super-special and provided a fit background for all the swingstcrs
in formal dress. Ormond Parker's dance band furnished the rhythm.
During intermission all eyes were enthusiastically fastened on Peggy
Wells giving her rendition of the native hula accompanied by Bobby
Dabbs on the drumsg and, of course, everyone was just as enthusiastic
when the junior girls served refreshments. On the whole, the prom
was a great success and the seniors appreciated it very much.
Rhudy, Davis, McClenny, Groh
The junior class has had a very interesting year both in activities and scholastic
achievement. Many junior names were present every six weeks on the honor roll and
they were quite active in all school organizations.
The football and basketball teams give a vote of thanks to the junior boys who helped
win our games. The girls were not left behind because they participated in the sports
sponsored by the G. A. A.
The class election was held early in the year and these officers have led their class
successfully through two busy semesters. The class sponsors were: Misses Shirley Thom-
son, Ethel Shirley, Charlotte Howe, Frances Keeney, Mabel Coverdill, Ruth Hopkins,
and Messrs. George Loclle, Wood Bloxom, and F. South.
The good times of the junior year are over now, and these students have yet to face
the trials of being seniors. But their record so far shows a promising group to rule the
Spartans in the year of 1940-41.

King and Queen
This year the popularity king and queen were crowned
at the school "Carnivalita." The: whole affair was very
gala and the confetti and noisemakers added to the fun.
The concession stand did a rushing business as did the
various sideshows. These all closed at nine-thirty, and
everyone adjourned to the auditorium for the coronation.
The identity of the king and queen was kept a secret until
the procession mounted the stage and the chosen two
ascended the throne. The queen, Georgialee Francis, was
attired in regal white and the king, Richard McAdoo, wore
a white dinner jacket. The queen's attendants, Dorothy
Kent, Anne Bizal and Virginia Gunsolly, wore formals in
pastel shades. The king's attendants were Roy Alderson,
B311 Martin and Bill Campbell. The Royal Couple were
cf:-wficd by two small pages. After the crowning a short
program was given followed by the recessional. The
Coronation Ball was held in the gym with the king and
queen as guests of honor leading the grand march. The
entire affair was one of the most successful entertainments
of the year.
This year our student council has taken a more prominent part in
school activities and problems than ever before. Evidence of this is
the part they played in working out a point system. The system is
complete now and will go into effect next year.
The meetings of our student council were held the second Tuesday
of each month in the dining room. Miss Hamer, Miss Hancock, Miss
jackson, Mr. Lodle and Mr. Brown were the faculty members who
attended the meetings and gave their assistance.
The sophomore class was represented by Winifred Louis and Harold
Geery, the junior class by Dan McClenny and Joyce Van Gundy, and
the senior class by Richard McAdoo and Lilah Suttles. Presidents of
school organizations represented on the student council were: Perry
Maxon, president of the Sophomore Hi-Y, Mary Susan Baldwin,
president of the Girl Reserves, and Raymond Jenkins, president of the
Junior-Senior Hi-Y. There is a total membership of nine students
and they do their best to aid in the governing of the school.
The officers are: president, Mary Susan Baldwin, vice-president,
Richard McAdoog secretary, Joyce Van Gundy.

To "Follow the Gleam" of truth and right has been the aim of
every G. R. Club member this year.
Fourteen girls attended G. R. camps last summer and returned home
full of ideas and ready to start to work. The three camps are: Bide-
a-Wee, at Wichita, Brewster, at Omahag and Camp Wood, at Elmdale.
Mary Susan Baldwin had the office of presidentg Dorothy Kent,
vice-presidentg Joyce Van Gundy, secretary, and Dorothy Hudson,
Some of the more interesting events which the club sponsored were
the Valentine Tea Dance, Easter Services, "Carnivalita," Mother-
Daughter Banquet, and ABC Teas. This yearis cabinet and officers
also planned for a reorganized cabinet for next year with two chair-
men of each committee. A new committee will also be added, the
The Burrough Girl Reserve is the high school colored girls chapter
of the Y. W. C. A. The Emporia High School chapter has been active
for 14 years, holding most of their meetings in the Mary White rest
This year there were sixteen members making a much larger club
than last year. Anna Holt was presidentg Ruby Harness, vice-presi-
dentg Barbara Ray, secretary, Lucia Wilson, treasurerg and Lorentine
Butler, Echo reporter.
The girls had a very interesting program worked out. Several par-
ties and picnics and various well-informed speakers were on the calen-
dar. They also carried out several worthwhile service projects.
The Junior-Senior Hi-Y is an organization in our school whose aim it is to build and
develop the characters of the boys who are members. To carry out this aim the Hi-Y
has different speakers during the year. One of the especially entertaining speakers this
year was the Rev. R. R. Walton, of the Second Christian Church. He talked on the
subject of negro spirituals and sang and played several. Other interesting speakers were:
James Putnam, who talked on "Manners Make Men", Leo Gessel, state Hi-Y secretary,
who told how Hi-Y meetings should be conducted, the Rev. Claude G. Large, and "Big
Jim" Kramer, a noted evangelist from the west coast.
The Hi-Y has had an average membership of forty. What they lacked in quantity,
however, they made up in quality for the club this year has engaged in more activities
than any Hi-Y in recent years. They have given a hayrack ride, an ice skating party,
sold hot dogs at football games, co-sponsored the "Carnivalita," and sent a good many
members to the two Hi-Y conferences at Yates Center and Chapman.
The proceeds from the G. R.-Hi-Y play, "Seven Sisters," are to be used to send the
members of the cabinet and the officers of the Hi-Y to Camp Wood. Some of the
money will be used to pay part of the expenses of a delegate to the National Hi-Y con-
ference in Kentucky.
The sponsors of the club are Mr. John R. Williams, Mr. Hugh Brogan, and Mr. Con-
rad Hanson. The officers are: president, Bud Jenkins, vice-president, Hal Swope,
secretary, Jim Welch, treasurer, Bill Howard, program chairman, Leonard Rich, service
chairman, Ralph Morse, music chairman, Roy Barnes.

Second row-Bond, Hayes, Fowler, Dabbs, Barnes, Davey
Third row-Lewis, Mr. C. Hanson, Kopke, Reed, Jones, John R. Williams
The Sophomore Hi-Y is an organization for the younger boys of the school. It en--
gages in many of the same activities as the Junior-Senior Hi-Y. This group aided in
sponsoring the play, "Seven Sisters," and the "Carnivalita." The district setting-up
conference held in Emporia last fall was sponsored by the sophomore and senior Hi-Y.
This organization engages in many other activities. One of the most interesting was
a "Smorgasbord." A Smorgasbord is a Swedish dinner at which a great variety of
foods are served in open sandwich style so that the diner may take his choice of the
kind of sandwich he wants. The boys enjoyed this immensely.
Other activities of the Sophomore Hi-Y included giving baskets at Christmas and
Thanksgiving and attending the Hi-Y conference at Chapman. Two of the boys,
Norman Alverson and Keith Reed, are representatives on the Youth Council.
The club meets twice a month and the boys conduct the meeting themselves. The
themes for discussion at some of the meetings were: character, personality, manners, and
amusement. At one meeting, Mr. Roy Clay, chief of police, and Mr. Jack Herron,
demonstrated their large collection of interesting guns.
During the first semester there were twelve boys in the club, but during the second
semester they boosted their membership to over forty. Unfortunately the picture was
taken during the first semester and so does not show all the boys. Sponsors for the club
are: Mr. Herbert James, Coach Alfred Smith, and Mr. Conrad Hanson, the local Y. M.
C. A. secretary. Officers for 1939-40 were: president, Perry Maxon, vice-president,
Bob McCantsg secretary, Calvin Granger, treasurer, Bill Rosacker.

The Echo, the weekly publication of our high school, has completed another success--
ful year with Mr. E. South as faculty advisor. The staff was headed by Virginia
Gunsolly, editor, Maurine Davidson, assistant editorg and Wanda Bailey, business
During the year there were several predominating issues of the paper. Among these
were the Christmas, April Fool, Easter, and Mother's Day editions.
The Echo also participated in a national contest sponsored by the "Children,s Crusade
for Children." A special edition was published in April for this purpose. These issues
of all school papers entering the contest were sent to the Library of Congress to be kept
in the national archives for the use of future historians.
Several new features were added to the paper this year. These included: Movie of
the Month, XVhat Does Webster Know About It?, Little Bits of Nothing, Colonel Corn's
Corner, and Around the Locker Room.
The Echo, with the Re-Echo, held a banquet at the Mit-Way on April 22. K. W.
Davidson, business manager of The Emporia Gazette, was the guest speaker and there
was an interesting program. It is hoped that the Echo-Re-Echo banquet will become
an annual occurrence.
The journalism department also organized a chapter of the "Quill and Scroll," an in-
ternational honorary journalistic society whfch had not been active in our school for
several years. The gold pins and certificates of this society were presented to the editors
and business managers of both school publications at the Echo-Re-Echo banquet.
Our Re-Echo staff started out this year with a resolution to do the work more quickly
and thoroughly than any staff before us. We realized this aim to a certain extent and
also gained much information about editing, budgeting, and publishing a yearbook.
We started the year with a picnic at Dryer Park. All the staff and sponsors at-
tended and it was a bang-up success. But we soon got down to work in our private
corner of the Echo room.
Deciding the theme was the first big problem. Finally some brilliant staff member
suggested using Jerry Tholen's original "Sparty" caricatures so Tholen was promptly
added to the staff as art editor. This started the ball rolling and then came the real
work. Days of work and nights of worry, composing write-ups, mounting pictures,
and rebuking each other for slowness and lack of sparkle in some of the Work.
We had a few minor worries such as the trouble we had with the deadline for the
senior pictures, trying to get a Re-Echo assembly planned and rehearsed, and balancing
the budget. However, after so much painstaking and nerve-racking labor, we straight-
ened out these difficulties, were ready for something new and had no trouble in finding
it. F. J. South, our faculty advisor, was a great help to us in ironing out our troubles.
This book is the result of the many hours spent in the Re-Echo corner. We hope it
lives up to your expectations.
The Re-Echo staff is as follows: Maxine Davidson, editor, Virginia Hagan, assistant
editor, Donald Knopf, business manager, Bill Martin and Roy Alderson, assistant business
managers, Lilah Suttles, organization editor, Harriet Richardson, calendar editor, Violet
XVilson, girls' sports editor, Bill Ebright, boys' sports editor, Betty Hildebrand, senior
section editor, Roy Bassett and Jack Arnold, kodak editors, Jerry Tholen, art editor,
Betty Jo Messick, typist, and the junior representatives who will be editor and business
manager of the 1941 publication, Marjorie Davis and Bill Warren.
The Re-Echo sponsors were: Misses Cross, Jackson, Howard, Rodewald, and Messrs.
Murphy, james, Price, Smith, and Parker.
Dramatics took on new importance this year as it was made into a solid course meeting
five hours a week. There was not an after school club so Miss Miller devoted her entire
time to the class. The students studied diction, voice improvement, pantomimes and
Several one-act plays were presented in assembly and Girl Reserve meetings. They
were: "Boy Meets Family," "A W'ee Red Cap," "Hyacinths for Christmas," and "Ro-
The first major play of the year was "Seven Sisters" which was presented as a G. R.-
Hi-Y benefit on November 10. Those in the cast were: Virginia Smith, Celeste Conk-
lin, Virginia Hagan, Peggy Lou Wichert, Sue Baldwin, Wilma Hayes, Jean MacFarlane,
Lorene Zeiner, Phillip French, Sam Martin, Richard McAdoo, LaVelle Smith, Harold
Porter, and Carlton Ewbank. This was the story of a Hungarian family. The ever-
busy mother was continuously in a dither over the problem of marrying off her daugh-
"The Night of January 16th" was presented February 29 as the Dramatics class
benefit play. Those in the cast were: Mildred Colwell, Francis Baysinger, LaVelle Smith,
Bill Warren, Lois Pirtle, Phillip French, Georgialee Francis, Carlton Eubank, Celeste
Conklin, Jack Kowalski, Constance Brown, Roy Alderson, Richard Easum, Sue Baldwin,
Peggy Lou Wichert, Clyde Wilson, Mary Freeman, Bill Ebright, Phillip Harvey, Dorothy
Hudson, Margareti Litwin, John Mattingly, and Jim Uht. It was a very interesting
play with all action taking place in a courtroom. Bill Warren gave an exceptionally
good characterization of attorney for the prosecution.
"Running Wild" was presented by the seniors on April 12. The play was short and
snappy and very entertaining. Members of the cast were: Roy Alderson, Dorothy Kent,
Norbert Fladung, Virginia Hagan, Bill Ebright, Howard Adams, Margaret Litwin, Anna
Holt, LaVelle Smith, Bob Sharrai, Mary Humphreys, Richard McAdoo, Maurine David-
son, and Ernest Torres. All members of the cast made good performances but Howard
Adams carried off the honors in his role of a famous botanist.
Our Dramatics class has really done exceptional work this year and we are very proud
This year's debate topic was: "Resolved, That the Federal Govern-
ment Should Own and Operate the Railroads."

Four Latin clubs were organized at the beginning of the school year. The meetings
were held during the regular class periods every three weeks. The program, which
consisted of roll call, reports, and games, was in charge of a different committee each
meeting. The reports were varied according to the season. A community service
project was adopted by the Latin clubs at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Each class
adopted a needy family and provided a dinner. The social events consisted of two
skating parties, a line party, and a picnic.
Each Latin club elected its own officers. The following students served as officers
in some club during the year: Jean Burnap, Harold Porter, Gloria Davidson, Eleanor
Randel, Dorothy O'Donnell, Harold Geery, Barbara Prier, Maurine Hennessy, Connie
VanCleave, Carol Bronsema, Betty Beitz, Bill Rosacker, Carrie Arnold, Peggy Gibson,

The high school band of eighty members under the direction of O. R. Parker had a
very successful year. Even before school started, the band played a concert and paraded
for the 4-H Club.
The band received their 80 new uniforms of black trimmed in red during August
and were ready for appearances when school started. Among the various places that
our band played were: Topeka for the State Fair, at Burlington and Topeka for football
games, and at Wichita for the district music festival. The band played for broadcasts,
for the U. S. Marine band welcome, for the Hallowe,en and Armistice Day parades, for
the basketball games, and for assembly.
Last year the band along with the orchestra received the highest rating possible in the
music contest, Highly Superior. The school board purchased a new tuba for the band
Norma Jean Knouse was the drum major and Carrie Arnold and Connie VanCleave
were the twirlers. These girls put on many fine exhibitions with their barons.

The high school orchestra of sixty members under the direction of O. R. Parker had
a very fine year. This was the largest number of students enrolled for several years.
The orchestra appeared for many engagements. Among these were appearances for
the Women's City Club, the plays, broadcasts, assemblies, baccalaureate, commence-
ment, and at the district contest in Wichita. The orchestra received a rating of highly
superior in the state contest last year. The school board purchased a new bass viol, a
cello, and two violas for the orchestra this year.
In the district contest, which was held at Wichita, the following were entered: band,
orchestra, clarinet quartet, brass sextet, and twelve soloists.
A twelve-piece dance band was organized this year and played for the all-school par'-
ties. The dance band made remarkable progress and everyone who attended any of the
parties will vouch for the good entertainment which this group provided.

Pageant and the spring music contest. They sang over the radio for the public school
program and several glee club members belonged to the all-state chorus at Emporia
State. Several also attended the Southwest Kansas Music Festival at Wichita.

Four years have passed since the Girls' Pep Club was
organized in 1936. Every year more girls become mem-
bers and this was surely the best year so far for the "Spar-
tan Peppers," who did more than their share toward cheer-
ing our teams to victory.
The cheerleaders during football season were: Bonnie
Stanley, Anne Bizal, Virginia McKinley, Margaret Rues,
jerry Tholen, and Richard McAdoo. During the basket-
ball season they were: Bonnie Stanley, jerry Tholen, Anne
Bizal, Margaret Rues, Richard McAdoo, and Duane Clapp.
The officers of the club were as follows: Dorothy Kent,
president, Georgia Lee Francis, secretary, and Violet Wil-
son, treasurer. Miss Ruthe Cross and Mr. George Lodle
are the sponsors of this organization.
Members of the Pep Club wore the same uniforms as
last year, red sweaters with Spartan heads on the front
and black skirts, A special section was reserved for this
group at all athletic events and they made a very impres-
sive picture in their red and black.

With only three lettermen back this year, the coaches had to construct an entirely
new' team. But having plenty of "A" reserve material from last year, they built a
really fine one. The team won six games, lost four, and placed second in the Eastern
Kansas Conference. Considering the powerful teams the Spartans played, that is a
very good record.
The Spartans opened the season by defeating the Burlington High team, 7-0. The
next grid battle ended in a defeat at che hands of the powerful Wichita East team. It
was a closer game than the score of 6-13 would indicate. To make up for this defeat,
the Emporians romped on their next three opponents piling up large scores in each
game: Ottawa, 26-7, Argentine, 19-Og and Lawrence, 19-7. Then after an open date,
the team lost to the conference champions, Topeka, by a score of 13-32.
The next game the Spartans played was with Manhattan, whom they defeated 7-6.
The following game was forfeited to Emporia by Wichita North. This was through
the ineligibility of one of their players. The next fray ended in a victory for Chanute,
the score being 7-14. ln the last game of the season the Spartans suffered defeat at
the hands of El Dorado. It was on Thanksgiving day and on a muddy, slippery field.
The score was 7-8.
The Emporians during the season made a total of 113 points, their opponents made
87. The co-captains who were elected for the 1939 season were Jim Corey and Bob
Lodle. Emporia High placed five boys on the all-conference team. They were: Jim
Corey, left end, Clyde Wilson, left tackleg Norbert Fladung, left guardg Bud Jenkins,
left half, and Jim clapp, fullback. Jim Corey and Clyde Wilson were elected to the
honorary all-state team.

Coach Alfred Smith and our basketball team are to be congratulated on the fine
record they have made this year. With Bill Campbell, captain, the only letterman
back this year, Coach Smith used almost all of last year's "B" team. This proved to
be a really fine team as they demonstrated by defeating their first three opponents, In-
dependence, Herington, and Fort Scott, by large scores.
The Spartans, then, lost a close hard fought game to the powerful Wyandotte team.
Wishing to redeem themselves, the Spartans drubibed Fredonia, 36-16. The next game
ended in a bare one point victory for Newton. Not in a very good humor over this
the Emporians romped on Junction City 32-19. The next cage battle ended in an
18-15 victory for Lawrence. The team won their next four games in swift succession,
their victims were, Ottawa, Argentine, Topeka, and Lawrence. The Spartans lost their
next two engagements to Wyandotte and Newton High Schools.
Regaining their stride the Spartans easily won their last two games, namely Topeka
and Ottawa. This left Emporia tied for first place in the Eastern Kansas Conference.
However, Topeka came through with their first win of the season by defeating Law-
rence. Emporia was then undisputed champion of the Eastern Kansas Conference.
The Red and Black won the regional at the expense of Capitol Catholic of Topeka.
Garnett, and Topeka High. This game with Topeka was the highlight of the season
for it was only won after six and one-half minutes overtime.
In the state tournament the Spartans defeated St. Joseph's of Hays before being
eliminated by Winfield, the state champions last year and this year.
This was indeed a successful season for Emporia, we not only won the Eastern Kan-
sas Conference, but the regional championship. Out of 22 games played the Spartans

Although Mr. Bloxom,s "B" team Won 5 games and lost 10, they became increasingly
better as the season progressed. They will be valuable material for next year,s "A"
team. The outstanding achievement of our "B" team was the defeating of Topeka's
undefeated "BU team, 20-19. This proves they have the makings of a real team and

With a goodly number of last year's track team out again this year, track prospects
were very promising. The first meet was a five way meet held in Emporia: Wyandotte,
Roosevelt, Council Grove, Madison, and Emporia participated. Wyandotte won the
meet with 73 points. Emporia placed second with S3 3-4 points. Madison, Council
Grove, and Roosevelt followed with 21 1-2, 20 3-4, and 5 points, respectively.
In this meet, Pratt won four firsts and Ray Jenkins one. The next meet was with
the Topeka Trojans held in Topeka. The Trojans proved their supremacy by a large
score. However, Jenkins and Pratt came through in true form. Jenkins won the
shotput and Pratt won both the high and low hurdles.
Even though the Spartans lost their first two meets they have demonstrated their
strength both on the track and on the field. We have a good team and expect a lot
from them this year in the conference and in the state meets.

tonight with a 30-23 victory. "It was
a hard fought game but I guess they
were too big for us."
We went to Fredonia tonight and re-
deemed ourselves with a victory, 36-16.
We, the Re-Echo staff, put on the
assembly program today and I guess
I must've looked pretty cute up there
on Tholen's drawing board. Anyway,
we got quite a few laffs.
I was quite innocently walking down
the street tonight when I saw some
of the queerest looking people. Found
out later they were G. R. girls going
to their backwards party.
We went over to Newton tonight and
after tussling with those guys all eve-

and they won, 18-15.
Went to the senior banquet at the
Broadview tonight. The food was
good and so was the program. The
class history was given by Tholen and
"Sparty," incorporated. Then of
course we went to the prom and it
was quite delightful. Parker's swing
band played a-nd they had the cutest
little hula dancer at intermission.
Lots of the girls went to Wichita to-
day for a G. R. conference. Tonight
we played Argentine here and beat

Eastern Kansas Conference. Oh boy!
We played our first game in the
regional tournament at Osage City
tonight. Drew a bye last night.
Lots of kids and faculty drove over to
see us beat Capitol Catholic, 44-25.
Over to Osage again. We defeated
Garnett in the semi-finals. And what
a crowd. Tomorrow night we battle
with Topeka High for the trophy, and
they're pretty sure of themselves, but
then, so are we.
Wow, what a crowd for the finals.
Roosevelt won the Class B and we
finally put the Trojans out in two
overtime periods. Emporia did pretty
well. We ate a big meal at Gould's
when we got back and then home to
bed. Gosh, what a night!
These tournaments are more fun.
We're in Topeka now for the state.
We're really going high power, stay-
ing at the Kansan this year. We
showed St. Joseph's of Hays what the
score was tonight, 33-27.
After a day of luxurious leisure at the
hotel we let Winfield beat us tonight.
I really shouldn't say let though,
cause we did our best.
We dejected, decrepit, disheartened
basketball boys arrived home just in
time to attend the school party to-
night. That pepped us up a lot
though. I'm beginning to feel like the
same old "Sparty."
Gosh, I bet my face was red sitting
up there on the stage for the Honor
Society Assembly. Never thought I'd
come to this.
Easter vacation today. I sure can use
the rest. School is wearing me down.
Our first track meet here and Em-
poria got four firsts. Wyandotte won.
I didn't place, but after all it was the
first meet of the season.
I really got lost in that crazy house
at the "Carniva1ita" tonight. I've

fun in a schoolhouse. Course I didn't
