William Allen White, to whose memory this book is dedicated, mode his entrance to Emporia, February 10, 1886, and his exit January 29, 1944. Mr. White belonged to the youth of the world. But we feel that the fact that he lived in Emporia made him belong to us more than to anyone else. His children, Mary and Bill, went to this school, walked these halls, had classes in these rooms that we use now. A living memo- rial of Mary White is the Mary White Rest Room for Col- ored girls which Mr. and Mrs. White gave to this school. His famous editorial, "What's the Matter with Kansas?", made The Gazette nationally known. Since that editorial, his many writings have been read by everyone. He was a most tolerant man and opposed narrowness and bigotry. His kindness for everyone made those who knew him remember him with respect and affection. His editorials about nature proved his love for beauty and his comments on cooking and recipes showed his humorous side which reached out to everyone. His humbleness, his complete unawareness of the fact that he was a great man was evident. He was o friend to everyone. Not a man will leave Emporia and say that he did not know William Allen White. He spoke to the students of Emporia High many times, the most recent was in 1941. He told us that our habits and personality would be formed by the time we were seniors. The great influence that he had upon us was evident because so many of us were interested in his editorials and books which are a part of our education in the Emporia Schools. The editorial, "Mary White," published soon after her death, will always be part of American school life and a favorite among students. The last paragraph from that editorial is an example of the beautiful thoughts that were a port of him. "A rift in the clouds in a gray day threw a shaft of sunlight upon her coffin as her nervous, energetic, little body sank to its last sleep. But the soul of her, the glow- ing, gorgeous, fervent soul of her surely was flaming in eager ioy upon some other dawn." While Mr. White was at home in London or New Yorlf, we believe that Emporia, Kan., U. S. A., was the place where he played his most outstanding role, that of editor of The Emporia Gazette. Other parts he played were those of politician, novelist, humorist, reformer, man of the world. He was a cosmopo- lite with an international reputation and probably he was the greatest editor that we shall ever know. One quality that we should remember about Mr. White was the fact that he believed it right that he could change his mind, and that even if one day he believed in an issue, events the next day might change his conviction. Peter Pan Park was the result of his love for Emporia young people. He contributed most generously to Ham- mond Park which he considered an unfinished iob. Each one of us has a chance to make these parks his own. For us who stay in Emporia they will continue to be the place for real enjoyment. As we, the children of a new generation, have known him and followed his worthy activities, we shall continue to be inspired by reading his brilliant writings which he has left to our world. We shall never forget the character of his charm, his charity and his lofty ideals. Thus, we dedicate this book to our friend William Allen White-V. J. ge-ff' PROLCDGUE As the 'I944 school year draws to its close, it marks the thirtieth year that classes have been held in this building, construction of which was started in 1912, and classes convened in the building Sep- tember, 1914. This building has sheltered many students and has witnessed their different ideas. It has known two great wars and from its interior have come the boys who have fought and shall fight to keep all that this building stands for alive. Many changes have been made since 'l9'l4 and many more will be made in the future to keep up with the changing times. The only remains of the old Garfield Building are the bricks and the bell which make the monument I-n the front lawn. lt has seen the beginning of romances, the start of careers. Boys and girls have found their interest in life and graduated from its doors to be- come great and famous men and women. SETTING Of the Activities of the Emporia Senior High School 1944 VIRGINIA JENSEN, Editor . JAY SOUTH, Business Manager SYNOPSIS It began on a sunny September day in 1943, and the action of the play missed not a beat from first till final curtain. The action took place in the Senior High School-in the laughter filled hallways, the friendly G. R, room, in the sleepy study hall, and buzzing classrooms. September 7th, the first day of school, saw sophies finding their way to new lockers, new rooms and teachers. Juniors joyously greeted friends they hadnlt seen since May 26, or the day before. Seniors practiced a haughty air, relishing their newly-acquired superiority. The first week of half-days flew by, and teachers finally memorized facesg and seated Johnnie and Sallie on opposite sides of the room! The next weeks travelled faster and faster- Home work became routine fand don't do it tonight if you can put it off 'til study hall tomorrow!j. During September the different clubs got under way, and Hi-Ya Fun Week launched the G. R. year with parties, picnics and get-togethers including a songfest. A Hi- Neighbor party with dancing, ping-pong and a refresh- ment bar ended the first week of playtime afternoons. The first assembly of the year outlined the activities and aims of the school year. John Rees, president of the Student Council, extended an invitation to the new stu- dents. Four hundred fifty students purchased activity tickets, and the pep club practiced cheering after school, in prep- aration for the first game of the year-with the Topeka But, sob! Emporia Highls gridmen were out- Redskins. weighed, and the first game was a defeat for lf. H. S. The initial assembly of the year introduced E. H. S.'s as baton twirlers, quartettes, dramatic skits, tumbling acts and a mock football game poured from the chapters of a huge book on the stage. The last exciting pages contained the cheerleaders, directing cheering and and leading in the school songs. Approximately 325 candles lighted the Junior High auditorium when the Girl Reserve recognition service was held. Helen Graves, graduate, gave a talk on l'Building for Tomorrow," the theme of the year. Freda Ames ex- plained the symbol of the Girl Reserves while the girls lighted their candles on the stage. activities, I' L The first all-school party October 15 meant lots of fun in the form of dancing, tennis, ping-pong and refresh- ments to a large number of students despite the group that went to the football game in Topeka. Members of the home rooms chose their representa- tives to the student council for the year. The home room schedule followed the same plan as the previous year. Scairdy cats, and also those who wanted to enjoy the dancing and games attended the all-school Spook-Spree on October 29. No spooks or witches were allowed at the party, of which admission was the purchase of a war stamp, to boost war stamp sales. Many students saw the captured Japanese submarine on display on Commercial, before attending the party. An Armistice Day program November 10, with Major Matthew J. Shevlin of the 84th College Training Detachment as talked about the cadet program general. November 3 brought to the polls the highest percen- tage of students ever to vote in the class elections of Emporia High. Six hundred nine votes were cast, and voting took place in the east and west ends of the gym balcony. The campaign was a lively one, with posters on the bulletin boards, and across the library windows in the study hall. Classes were headed by Bon Donnellan, seniorg Philip Jensen, junior, and Jim Benfer, sophomore. "Thumbs Up," an all-school play, was presented November 19 before the largest crowd to see an all-school play since 1929. The three-act comedy was well received by its audience Cof courselj and its timeliness made it especially interesting, since it had to do with the black market, war workers, spies, and the war effort. Rev. Orlo Choguill of the First Presbyterian Church was guest speaker for the G. R.-Hi-Y Thanksgiving pro- gram. Bob Richter introduced Reverend Choguill, who talked of this country, its beginning and foundation with relation to God. Devotions, a choral amen, a talk on the history of Thanksgiving, and the singing of "America, the Beautiful," by the audience, made it a very impressive and enjoyable program. Outstanding actress!

Any old tags or botttles? This was the cry from door to door as the city-wide salvage campaign was under- taken by limporia's city schools and grease, rags, metal and paper were the main objectives.

Somehow I am not concerned about the war alone but also about the period after the war. I am wondering whether or not the pupils of Emporia High School and those of all other high schools over America have been prepared adequately to meet the problems which will con- front them. It has been proved time and time again since December 7, 1941, that high school pupils can meet the challenges of a war-even a total war waged by strong and ruthless enemies. The real test will come when you must meet the need for making a better America and a better world in the postwar period. The situation will be different then. Your problems will not be so well defined Your course of action will not be so well mapped. Your enemies will not be so well known and perhaps not so easily at- tacked. In this period, you will have not only to choose your leaders but to help formulate pro- grams and evaluate results. This will be the real testing time. But why should I be concerned about this? The best criteria by which to judge what any individual or any group will do is that of past behavior. Up to now you have met, attacked and overcome difficulties.

The instructors have all done a fine job to help many people help themselves during the present labor shortage. Vocational Agriculture Tuesday and Wednesday nights of every week since january, 1940, have been busy ones at the Vocational Agriculture building. Farmers who enroll by 30-day periods come for miles around to overhaul mowing machines, rakes, and build trailers, which was only a small part of the jobs they undertook. J. W. TAYLOR, teacher of the Vocational Agriculture classes, had worked overtime with his regular classes and the night classes too. Much credit is due Mr. Taylor for his fine work. Mechanics taught six classes a week of auto 14 boys enrolled. Besides studying and trucks they also assemble and disassemble them. The boys take care of their own and the family cars doing overhauling and repair work. Auto Liswis HANSEN has mechanics this year with the parts of automobiles Miss CHARLOTTE CURRY has taktn over Mr McCunes Senior Social Studies classes for the rest of the school year. Miss Curry, who is a graduate of the College of Emporia, where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree, and the University of California, from which she has her Masters degree, is fond of cats and, when time permits, likes to braid rugs. School Nurse Our school nurse, Miss STELLA E. KLEIN, has had varied and interesting experiences which include teaching school, being superintendent of nurses at the W. A. Foote Memorial Hospital, public health nursing, and her work here in the schools. Miss Klein took her nurses' training at the Wichita Hospital Training School and did post- graduate work in hospital administration at Grace Hospital, Detroit, Michigan. She enjoys her work in the schools and is certainly kept busy guarding the health of so many students. Miss Petty Miss MARY D. Pia'r'rY received her Bachelor of Science degree in commerce and education at the Kansas State Teachers College and is going to finish her B. U. this summer at the Denver University. For the past year she has been teaching a bookkeeping elass in Room ZOA. Her hobbies are knitting, reading and dramatics, although she says she doesn't get much time to do them now. Pre-induction Test Pre-induction or knowledge tests were given in the spring by Hugh Brogan to all boys who were of pre- induction age. Almost all of the junior and Senior boys took at least one of these tests. There were seven different types: civics and government, mechanical aptitude, mental ability, American history, silent reading and arithmetic. These tests were given for the purpose of showing the boys which subject they are weakest in, so they will have a chance to refresh themselves in these subjects before enter- ing the service. A refresher course in the fundamentals of arithmetic was given by Kathryn Zenor and Supt. W. M. Richards, each having a class which began one hour before school each morning. Emporia High in War Work Emporia Senior High has done their part towards the war effort in Red Cross work. It has made baby gowns and shirts, mcnis robes, two afghans, drapes for the win- dows of the Winter General Hospital in Topeka, and con- tributed books and S10 to the money drive. The first paper drive brought 34 tons of paper and the second one totaled a half ton of rags and 20 tons of paper. Girl Reserves made 53 utility kits for the soldiers at Winter General Hospital. The public schools all worked together selling bonds and stamps to purchase a P-51 Mustang pursuit plane.

Floyd McCune, senior social studies instructor, and active students council sponsor, and director of War ac- tivities in Emporia public schools, was E. H. S.'s first faculty member to be "caught in the draft." Mr. Mc- Cune, well-known an1ong students and fellow teachers as friend, humcrist and sportsman, was assured his position upon his return, by the Board of Education. In an essembly program March 1, the Minute Man flag, obtained by a 90 per cent participation in buying war stamps and bonds, was presented to the school. Two numbers by Elaine Sheridan, accompanied by Connie Brown, opened the program. Lewis G. Shultz, chairman I 23 of the Lyon County War Finance Committee, gave a short talk on the importance of the purchase of stamps and bonds. Sketches from the life of William A. White were presented in assembly, February 18. The story of Mr. White's life was carried through by narration between the skits. An old-fashioned barn dance with lively trumpet and fiddle music, waltzers in whirling skirts and bow ties depicting the Gay Ninetics period, a sketch telling of his first editorial, and First World War Scenes portrayed memorable phases of Mr. White's life. The program ended with a tribute to youth. The presentation was given in shortened form in the city schools' radio program February 10, Mr. Wliite's birth- CContimu'tl on Page 263 l ,L l l 4 Honor This year's Honor Society had forty-seven members.

R. sponsored Sweet- heart Dance February ll, at the junior High gym. After a Grand March, "Their Mlajestiesf' Phyllis Jensen and Buddy Getz were seated on a heart shaped throne, given silver crowns and invited to enjoy tap dancing and music befitting a king and queen, The "Raggeds', and "Ruggeds," teams made up of G. R. committees, battled for a month to see which group could finish rag rugs first. Clean rags were brought by the girls, braided and sewed together, and donated to Wiinter General Hospital in Topeka. Huge pyramids of paper and magazines, and boys and girls in coveralls and jeans meant more scrap paper was being collected for Uncle Sam. The drive was carried on during the weeks of February 14-24 and students were excused from their study halls to hustle around on foot and in trucks and cars to bring back giant bundles and carloads of boxes, cardboard and whatnot ftrophies found amongst the paper included baby shoes, wedding tintypes, and a corsetj. The paper drive was a walloping success, bringing in a total of almost thirty-four tons of scrap paper. A clever skit enacted by the Service committee won the prize for the best song at the Girl Reserve songfest. The prize was an autographable white g0Q1t. Each com- mittee sang one song, many familiar tunes were changed into clever G. R. songs by the girls. Miss Charlotte Curry took over Floyd McCune's five social studies classes for the remainder of the semester. Mostly during school time for two weeks the junior- senior boys took tests to prepare them for the Army pre- induction tests. The tests included vocational aptitude, mechanical aptitude, math, Fnglish, history, citizenship. reading and science. Boys who found they needed more work on any of these subjects were given opportunity to join classes and receive special help. Ormond R. Parker, director of the band and orches- tra departments, received his call to report for "boot train- ing" the first of April. In his ten years at Emporia High, Mr. Parker saw many changes. Five thousand dollars worth of instruments, 76 black and red uniforms and 4 white ones were purchased. During eight summers Mr. Parker taught band and orchestra in a summer course. Parties were given for Mr. Parker by the faculty of junior and senior high, by the Fmporia City Band, and by the senior high band and orchestra. March 51 the Emporia Travelers' club sponsored the WIBW round-up show and dance in the Civic Auditorium to help raise money for the teen-age center. Youth of Fmporia were given the privilege and responsibility of planning the organization and government of the teen town and making and enforcing the rules. Thirteen Senior High school teachers and janitors and a few eighteen-year-old seniors gave blood at the Red Cross mobile unit. Now came the hilarious Senior Assembly, the memor- able Senior Banquet and the romantic junior-Senior Prom which need not be written down to be remembered. just one week more of school, four-days-then Bac- calaureate, and finally, after twelve years of fun and study, paper wads and history exams, grade cards fund one or two seventh hours!j-the commencement exercises. And so down came the last curtain on a jolly, successful school year-1944. CURTAIN CALL! Carl Knouse and Freda Ames were crowned King and Queen of Popularity at the "Final Fling," the last all- school party of the year. Their attendants were Ruth Granger, Phyllis Taylor, Challa Ireland, Bob Donnellan, Morgan Kramm, and john Edward Rees. The party, May 12, was sponsored by the Girl Reserves.

Smith and Wfood llloxom, began uork this fall on a team which turned out a season of two victories, five defeats and one tie. The Spartans opened the season against the heavier and powerful Redskins from W'ichita North by a score of Zo to O. The Spartans were puzzled by the box formation which the Redskins used. The next game was a defeat by the Newton llailroaders, 27 to li. The Spartans then journeyed to Haskell, and were again defeated at the hands of the Haskell lndians by the tune of 27 to 0. The animal battle between the Trojans of Topeka and the Spartans saw the men of Troy come otit on top 26 to 0, lfmporia held the stronger Trojans 0 to 0 the first half but weakened in the final half. W'e gained our first victory of the season the following week at home, defeating the 111 Dorado eleven IS to 0. The Spartans took advantage of two costly fumbles and a blocked kick to pave the way to victory The game was played in a steady downpour of rain. lin- eouraged by the win over lil Dorado, Emporia High trav- eled to XVinfield to chalk up their second consecutive vie- tory of the season. The score was 24 to 6. The Spartans played their worst game of the season the next Friday los- ing to Salina 39 to 0. The Spartans were completely out- wtighed by the larger Maroons. The Spartans closed the season with a thrilling game with the Ottawa Cyclones. The score at the final gun 15 to 13. It looked as if lim- poria was on its way to a third victory, but the final quarter Ottawa scored two touchdowns. This year's team has been the lightest team at H.

Some of lfmporia lligh's opponents turned out to be the strongest in the state. Although a tough schedule the Spartans played to the best of their ability. With eight letiermen returning lfmporia will be looking toward 11 brighter season next year. At the close of the stason the Spartan football team was honored by a banquet given by the limporia Chamber of Commerce.

Carl Knouse was back at his forward slot. DeKoven "Denny" Moore was back at the center position. During the season the Spartans won three while dropping fourteen. The lack of height of our players was a great disadvantage to our team, although the Spartans played .1 fast, sparkling brand of ball. Most of time the H. S.'s gave the crowd a thrilling and interesting game from the start to the final gong. Emporia High lost the opener by a close margin to Manliattaia High, 28 to 24. The game was nip-and-tuck until the final quarter when Manhattan pulled ahead to win the ball game. The first out of town game was played on a small court at Osage City. The hosts came out on top 37 to 24. The Spartans lost their second home game to McPherson, who used a tight Zone defense. The score was 45 to 24. Emporia journeyed to Topeka to play Highland Park on a small court which again proved to be a disadvantage to the Spartans. The Scotties came out on top 48 to 29 after the score being tied at the half 12 to 12. The Spartans traveled again to Topeka the following week to play the Trojans. Superior height of the Topeka squad again spelled defeat for the Iimporians. W'e dropped the game 43 to 22. Emporia, still in the losing eolumn, lost to the Cyclones of Ottawa 30 to 19. The Spartans ehalked up their first victory over Burlington, 38 to 22. Our I 55 team led all the way and made all kinds of tricky shots. Riding at the crest of a victory the Spartans traveled to Haskell only to lose in the last seconds of the game. The Indians edged out a victory 30 to 26. limporia held the favored Wyatidotte Crew throughout the game, only to lose 54 to 22. The smaller Spartans played a well, hard-fought battle, but eouldnit beat the NVyandotte five who had .1 great height advantage. The Spartans lost again on their home court, 28 to 21, to Osage City. This was a close game all the way. The next week we played a powerful team from Salina. The Spartans were completely Olli- classed by the Maroons defensively and offensively. The victors maneuvered a tight Zone defense which the Spartans couldn't crack and take shots. The score was S7 to 15. Emporia played Ottawa for the second time this season and were completely off and "cold," losing 42 to 26. After playing one of their best games of the season against Wygiii- dotte at home earlier in the season, the Spartans journeyed to Kansas City to take on the Bulldogs and were com- pletely outclassed 51 to 22. Emporia won their second game, 29 to 21, from Haskell. The game was close all the way until the final quarter when Iimporia edged ahead, froze the ball and chalked up victory number two. The next night we went to Manhattan to win our third and last game. The score was 37 to 31. The Spartans played good ball and their plays clicked throughout the game. To close the regular season, Ifmporia had their annual bat- tle with their rival, the Topeka Trojans. Topeka applying a new fast break offensive kept the Spartans on the go throughout the game. The visitors went home with vic- tory, 60 to 32. At the regional tournament at junction City, the Spartans drew Salina which had already played Ifmporia in the regular season. Emporia lost by a score of S6 to 32 although a much better than played at Emporia.
