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.
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-
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-

Of the Activities of the Emporia Senior High School
VIRGINIA JENSEN, Editor
. JAY SOUTH, Business Manager
It began on a sunny September day in 1943, and the
action of the play missed not a beat from first till final
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-
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-
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.
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

College Training Detachment as
talked about the cadet program
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

Behind the scenes of all successful productions
there is always a group of expert producers. Our
producers, the members of the Board of Fduca-
tion, have been doing an excellent job, although
their work often is not recognized.
During the past year the Board has suffered
several unexpected handicaps and the extra meet-
ings called have demanded more of the members'
time. Mr. Marcellus, new to the Board this
year, was called to the navy soon after his elec-

The school year 1943-1944 draws to a close
in a time of apprehension and uncertainty created
by the war. 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
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. Your record is clear,

SO LONG, SENIORS OF 1944
You are completing your High School work
at a time when the entire world is in a state of
expectancy. When will the war end? What
part will this class have in the winning of the
war? How can this graduating class contribute
to the winning of the peace?
Already, some of the members of this class
are in the service. This yearls Seniors have been
outstanding in the War Efforts undertaken and
successfully carried out by our High School.
May you continue to carry on after you leave us.
Whatever you do, wherever you are, we know

During the Past Year
Gizoitoxz Lomas and JOHN E. BECK spent several nights
a week teaching home mechanics to adults, many of them
parents of senior high students. Miss Ruth Woodbury had
charge of the sewing classes and Hugh Brogan, head of the
adult education course, was in charge of the local classes
which met for ten week periods in the fall and at the be-
ginning of the year. Other classes were public speaking
taught by George Pflaum, farm production instructed by
ll. W. Taylor and Luther Williams, typing by Mrs. Wood
Bloxom, shorthand by Mrs. Bernard Kelly, and accounting
by F. L. Robinson. The instructors have all done a fine
job to help many people help themselves during the present
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.
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.

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
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
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 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
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.

Faced with the difficult task of building a winning
team around a nucleus of only three lettermen, the Spartan
coaching staff consisting of Alfred D. 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. S. for a long time.
ln spite of this disadvantage they used their speediness and

alertness to overwhelm some of the foes. 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. The highlight of the evening was a din
speech given by "Phog" Allen, head basketball mentor at
Kansas University. Coach Smith announced that Carl

Only two veterans from last year's "A" squad re-
turned this year to form the nucleus for this year's squad.
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
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
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.
At the end of the season Dicky Murphy and Carl Knouse
were elected eo-captains for '44.

Altliough limporia lost mnvt of their games, they won
their game at Nlanliattan, keeping a thirteen year record in
whieh the Spartans have not loxt a game there.
A jinx was broken with Ottawa this year as the Spar-
tans lost their first game to Ottawa here in twelve years.
ll. II. S. eagers spent New Year's live in Topeka hunt-
ing a gas station to help one of our friendly jzmitors who
took some of the players up to play Highland Park.
The night of the Salina game here arrived and no
basketball suits were available! Coach Smith had sent
them to the laundry and they were finished 30 minutes
before game time.
After the game with Hasltell at Lawrence, the Spar-
tans saw Kansas I.'niyersity play Oklahoma, only losing by
a close margin Z4 to 25.
All the players went to Topeka in ears except Archer,
Moore antl Knouse, who agreed to ride the train. The train
was late so the boys started toward home: on the way they
noticed a Iinpeka ear parked in front of an lfmpnria cafe.
They wtre lueky enough to receive a ride to Topeka antl
arrived just before game time. And was Smith worried!
