It has always been a fundamental wish of Americans to place education as the
foundation or the cornerstone of all the things which are strived for to better our
country-understanding of others, clear thinking, and the principles of democracy.
On the shoulders of our superintendent, W. M. Richards, rests a responsibility of
seeing that these American ideals are imparted to us-the students of Emporia High,
and to all young people of Lyon County. Mr. Richards, in accepting this task, has
carried it out with wise judgment and efficiency.
As the world grows ever more troubled and
confused, we are grateful and proud to have Superin-
tendent Richards at the helm of our public schools.

Never before have the obligations of
citizenship-spiritual, political, and fi-
nancial-been greater than at the present
time. Since good citizenship stems largely
from attitudes developed early in life,
you students of E. H. S. may look back
with pride upon the citizenship-build-
ing activities which you supported dur-
May I extend my sincere congratulations to the graduating class of 1948.

Americans are wondering what will happen during the next two or three years.
We all hope that the peace, for which we are working so hard, will become stronger
as the years go by. Whatever may happen, we know that the 1948 graduating class of
Emporia High School can be counted on
to do its part. ' '

We, the graduating class of the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and forty-eight, who
modestly admit, with the acknowledgment of numerous teachers, to being the most remarkable group of
Seniors ever to darken the door of our beloved Alma' Mater, do hereby bequeath various and sundry
items to be cherished and cared for by next year's uppcrclassmen-although at the present time these lowly
Sophomores and juniors are undoubtedly too immature to care for them properly! It is sincerely hoped by
the adult and intelligent members of this present group that their childish ways may be put aside to care
for the battered institution in futurc years.
To the entire Sophomore class we bequeath:
ITEM I. A patient suffering of teachers who, without fail, assign lengthy lessons over holidays and
often important games, the gloomy halls of E. H. S., our miraculous talent for jamming loclters, and last,
a shrewdly devised means of sleeping through classes with the ability to cram for a semester test five
minutes before it is given-without hope that we can find a way to pass it.
ITEM II. To the junior class who will reign supreme over the humble underclassmen next year, we
leave our noteworthy quantities of unadulterated pep shown at all the games and the pride we display
toward the boys who play them. Wi: leave utter lack of fright in dealing with any situation, even
semester tests, and last we leave a sincere wish that they' will care for old E. H. S. as we have so nobly
done, because in all probability our grandchildren will trudge down the same timeworn halls.
ITEM III. To the Senior Sponsors we leave our thanks and gratitude for the magnificent task they
have done by acting as our guidings hand to the present group since the days of our childhood, as Sophs.
ITEM IV. To the Faculty we leave our profound congratulations for having lived for three awe-
inapiring years with this outstanding class of '48,
ITEM V. Listed below are various items left by members of this graduating class to be cherished
and prized by the underclassmen related in this last will and testament:
Dick Whittington leaves his quiet, courteous manners to be portioned among the entire Sophomore
class at the request of their sponsors.
Betty jo Leonard leaves her definitely new look to Poncho Allen, who still gives the gals that old one!
Don McGregor bequeaths his gift for gab to shy Donnie Nicltelson with earnest hopes that it will

We buy our tickets and eagerly step into, of all things, the House of Mirrors. After wandering aimlessly
through the mirror-lined passages we think we have found the exit at last but to our surprise we have
entered what resembles Rogues' Gallery, but the sign says E. H. S.'s Hall of Fame.
We're rather indifferent until we recognize our very own classmates staring at us from within
walnut frames. The guide comes forward' and offers to give us a brief resume of the class of '48's

Ifs hard to say goodby to friends, to the busy
days that made up our Sophomore, junior, and Senior
years, and even to the inanimate building of Emporia
High. Perhaps it's difficult for the Seniors to leave
E. H. S. because we are on the brink of entering in
the future and even now these three years in high
school have come to symbolize the happiness and joys
that can only be found when we are young.
The graduating class of '48 has been an unusually
active one. Scores of accomplishments initiated by
its members will make this group be remembered for
years to come. Key Club, Adopt-a-School plan,
Queen of the Courts,-all mark a precedent of ac-
tivities to be carried on by other classes. Its capable
officers, Bob Toms, jackie Capps, George Emrich,
and Elizabeth Koch, have been responsible for many
accomplishments of this group.
The Seniors who will walk across the stage to
receive their diplomas will not bid goodby to every-
thing in E. H. S. but the memories of the fun in
Emporia High will be remembered always, it is our
hope that the classes of '49 and '50 will enjoy them
as much as we.

school. The graduating class of 1948 had thirty-six students who were awarded the
recognition pins. They are: Eunice Barry, Harlan Spatz, Ann Jones, Phil Bosserman,
Ann Bourland, Dona Campbell, Jackie Cripps, Bob Edwards, Marcus Eudaley, Beverly

The junior class has earned itself a reputation for
energy and originality. The students of this Aclass
have put their cooperation and abilities behind every
drive sponsored by Emporia High to assume their
suceess, capably led by the class officers, Duane
Allen, Gerald Shadwick, Eunice Valyer, and Mickey
The "Forty-ninersv presented the Seniors with a
Prom that they will never forget. With a -merry-go-
round as the theme, it showed the clever, original
idea of those who planned it.
By their friendliness, excellent display of athletic
ability and willingness to work, the Iuniors are prou-
ing themselves more than able to fill the role of next
yearfs leaders, as Seniors.

The past school year, the Student Council, headed by Phil Bosserman, with twenty-
ninc representatives, worked to promote and further school activities. Their goal was
to build an interest among the students of Emporia High School in their school's work.
The projects accomplished by this organization were as follows: built interest in
Student Council electionsg sold season football ticketsg concessions at first home gameg
noon entertainment programg chartered buses to different schoolsg handled the publicity
of Fire Prevention Weekg sponsored the all-school party after the Ottawa game, January
9, with the Six Countsg helped to establish the "Adopt-a-School" Plan for the schoolg
rearranged and decorated the trophies and trophy casesg furthered interest among
students in Student Council activities.
The Student Council established a precedent for future basketball festivities by
climaxing the season with the crowning of a basketball queen.
The Student Council is the governing body for the students and therefore it is
their organization through which they may express their ideas and projects for the
school to participate in.

"Have you seen your beat?" "ls your personality in?", are some of the many questions asked by
the Iicho sponsor, Mrs. Lois jaquith, as she prepares to get copy for that Echo that appears every Friday
'-801110 llllw .
The journalism class this year was large, which made it difficult to get inches. In order to divide
the stories, numbers were drawn and stories chosen in that manner. The boys this year were quite out-
numbered by the girls,-the ratio being one boy to every five girls, Hint-hint, boys, Mrs. jaquith would
like to see some more boys in her journalism class next year.
"Small Talk", "Spiffy Spartan", "Sparklin' Spartanette", "The Birthday Column" and various other
features and editorials have been featured regularly in the Echo this year. Student opinion polls brought
out many interesting answers from students. Polls on universal military training and the adopt-a-school
plan were conducted by the journalism students. Features on the different nationalities of the students
also appeared in the lfcho.
The licho has vigorously backed the adopt-:1-school plan from its beginning, with editorials. front-
page news stories, features, polls, and also printed articles writttn by students from various English classes.
This ear, for the first time, a six- ave a r was ut out b the 'ournalism class. It first a -ared

Monday is deadline day for the Echo on pages one and six. Many Mondays after school various
members of the class can be found sweating over a story and trying to meet the deadline. Wednesday
is the deadline for the paper which comes out a week and a half later. This is the reason some of the
stories and column seem a little aged.

Putting out an annual is a pretty big job, as the members of this year's Re-Echo staff found out early
in the year. F. J. South, Re-Echo advisor, and other faculty members, had a hard time choosing' the staff
for the 1948 yearbook, but after they were chosen and okayed in the office in February, things really
began to hum in the printing room.
When the assignments were made, each member went to work getting write-ups and advertisements,
collecting kodak pictures and doing other work to make this year's Re-Echo a "super" job. The staff
also helped choose the cover of our yearbood and everyone has agreed that it is one of the best covers
E. H. S. has ever had.
After much discussion, the Spartan was chosen as the theme of the book.
The Re-Echo staff found that it takes a lot more to edit a yearbook than they thought it would. The
cover was done in Chicago, the engraving in Wichita, the printing in Emporia and the binding in Kansas
City. But, thanks to the Re-Echo staff of 1948, their advisors, and many business establishments, the
annual of Emporia Senior High School went to press on time in April and then came out to the student
body as you can plainly see, a really swell book that the staff and school can well be proud of.
The 1948 Re-Echo staff was as follows:

Again this year, as in the past, the Emporia High School Band was called upon
to play for many engagements. Approximately 30 times this year, the band has
responded to the call to suit up and furnish some organization with music. Besides
playing for all home games, the band attended out-of-town games, and performed at
the Regional Tournament, the Christmas parade, a military funeral, Wheat Train,
Rural Youth Day, and Junior and Senior High School assemblies. Breaking a tradition
of the past, the band did not enter the district music contest this year, for lack of
competition, although several soloists, representing th-e band, did so.
With the graduation of last year's twirlers, the organization was at a loss, until
some very capable talent was discovered in Donald Thompson, Elaine Woodbury, Pat
Street, and Carolee Shocbrook. Despie their inexperience and youth, QPat and Carolee
are sophomores, Elaine is a freshman, and Donald, head drum-major, is an eighth-
graderj the kids all turned in professional performances.
For the first time this year, the band was organized under elected officers. Bob
Toms was chosen President: Thelda Askew, Vice-President: Jackie Cripps, Secretary-
Treasurer, and Mike Meares was an efficient Assistant Director.
The band is looking forward to receiving some new uniforms in the near future.

For the first time in its history, the Mixed Chorus was organized as a class,
instead of an activity. It met three days a week, fifth hour, under the direction of
Miss Mary Alice Steelsmith. lts enrollment was nearly seventy.
The schedule included participation in the Christmas program, which will be
presented two nights next year to take cate of the immense crowds. Besides this, it
appeared in the Easter assembly, and its annual spring concert, "Revolt In Rhythm".
The A Cappella has played an active part in the musical field this year. They
received highly superior rating in the music contest and performed capably before
civic groups of the community. Also they have sung on various occasions in school.
SENIOR DOUBLE SEXTETTE
The Senior Double Scxtette also received highly superior in the music contest and
perhaps made appearances more than any other musical group in school, They have
worked together for three years and this was easily visible when they sang before
assmblies, Y-Teen meetings, and outside clubs. Lee Barry was the accompanist.
JUNIOR TRIPLE TRIO
A newly-organized group, the Junior Triple Trio, composed of all girls, has sung
before church circles and in the Spring Concert. Their accompanist is Rae Deane
Mary ,lane Tate, Ist sopranog Shirley Boyd, 2nd soprano, and Jo Riegle, alto,
compose thc Senior Trio which has been quite active for two years. School parties,
Y-Teen, G. A. A., assemblies and the Senior dinner are just a few of the places they
Ethel Wilson, lst soprano, Peggy Smith, 2nd soprano, and Barbara Burton, alto,
called themselves the "Harmony Three" and pleased many audiences. Some were the
"Revolt in Rhythm", Y-Teen, and school parties. They were accompanied by Miss

A helpful organization in Senior High is the Emporia Senior High Stage Craft, The boys in this
group have worked hard this year helping various other organizations to put over their activities.
They set the scenes for the school plays, "Dear Ruth" and "You Can't Take It With You", and for
the three Clair Tree Major plays, "Alice In Wonderland", "Mrs, Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch", and
The Christmas Pageant was made more of a success through the cooperation of the Stage Craft group.
Another helpful thing they did was to set thc scenery for "Harvey" which was presented April 2
at the Civic Auditorium.
Not only did they do all this but they also put up bleachers in the Auditorium and at the football field.
The officers of Stage Craft were: President, Dean Clappg Vice-President, Donald Hufferdg Secretary
and Treasurer, Dave Smith. Other members were Dick Grey, Angel Rodriques, Bob Smith, Candy Torres,
Pat Harkins and jery Simpkins. George Lodle was sponsor.

G. A. A.
Any girl in sehool could belong to the Girls' Athletic Assoeiation this year. The purpose of G. A. A.
is to give its members opportunity to participate in planned recreational activities outside of regular
school hours. The girls took part in such activities as swimming, hiking, bowling, tennis, volleyball,
badminton, tenniquoits, brscball and basketball. Teams for these sports were organized by student
leaders. Points were given for purriipation and awards made for accumulation of points.
One of the outstanding things the G. A. A. did this year was give an all-school party.
Prominent leaders of G. A. A. were Lois Gaines, Presidentg Maxine Gibson, Vice-President, Joyce
Hoffman, Secretary, and Eunice Valyer, Treasurer.

On the first day of school, with the temperature 105 degrees, the football team
began to prepare for a season of hard fought football.
The record book this year will be rather misleading with the two wins and
seven losses recorded there. It does not tell of the effort constantly put forth by the
Spartans and their coaches. They had to fight tough opponents, four of these-
Wyandotte, Wichita North, Great Bend, and Topeka-ranked among the top ten in
The season's opener was with Wichita North who trounced us 49 to 6. The first
victory was won against Burlington with a score of 19 to 6. The second win of 6-0
was played on Schaffner Field with Chanute. Failure to convert cost the Spartans two
of their games against El Dorado and Ottawa, both coming out 14-12.
The average weight in the line was 170 pounds while the backfield had 162-pound
Jim Collins, Senior halfback, topped the scores of the year with a total of 48
points. Gene Bloxom, Junior end, came in second with 14 points, closely followed by
jim Roth, quarterback, and Ralph Hahn, Sophomore halfback, each with 12 points.
Tackles Bob Smith and Dean Staley both played good hard ball during the season.
Dale Searcy, substitute center, helped break up many of the opponents' plays. Merle
Harrison, guard, was a constant performer, and was elected captain at the end of
Collins, Hahn, and Goff displayed good running abilities. Roth and Hoffmans
did most of the passing for the Red and Black. Richard Burkey's hard tackling brought
down some of the statels best players after they had eluded the Spartan line.
Many thanks should go to Coach A. B. Koch and the assistant coaches, Wood
Bloxom and Gerhardt Eikermann, for coaching a hard fought year. A lot of credit is
also due Stanley Bostrom,
trainer, for all the time and effort he put in this season.

The Emporia High "B" team had a bang-up football season, winning three out
of four games. On September ZS they traveled to Eskridge which fell in their path
with a loss of 20-24. The Spartans defeated El Dorado on their home ground October 7
with a score of 22-13. On October 15, the Spartans suffered their first loss to Newton
by a score of 6-19. On October 23 the "BD team gave out with a 14-12 victory over
the Madison "A" team on Schaffner Field.
The game with Madison was the closest one of the season. Starting with a scoreless
first period, Bob Banister collected the first winning touchdown pass from Carl Hoff-
mans in the second quarter. In the third period, the Bulldogs returned with a lateral
pass, which put the ball up to the two-yard line, and carried over for a 7 to 6 score.
An attempt to complete a pass for the extra point failed.
The Spartans soon made the second winning touchdown pass and successful kick,
making the score 14 to 6.
In the third quarter, a 31-yard gain' for Madison helped put the ball on the
Spartans' two-yard line where Peace carried it over to make the score 14 to 12 in
favor of the Spartans after a pass for the estra point failed. The fourth quarter ended
without much threatening of scoring.
The team, consisting of Seniors Juniors, and Sophomores, is coached by Gerharclt
Eikermann and Wood Bloxom who taught the boys a number of new plays which
showed worthwhile results.
The members of the first strong were "Push" Harr who filled the fullback positiong
Carl Hoffmans showed interest in his quarterback position, Ralph Hahn, who showed
his skill, played opposite J. R. Heath, making the two halfbacks. On the line there were
Jim Mullikin and "Ellisy" Hammer showing some good blocking as guards, accompanied
by Warren Pierce and Ed Banister for tackles, aided by Kenneth Boughton and LeRoy
Crist as ends. Last but definitely not least was the center position filled by Bruce
Musgrave. The team,s average weight was approximately 147 pounds. '
These boys didn't get much publicity but they worked hard all season to prepare
for next year's football season.
The lfmporia High Spartans lifted the lid of the 1947-48 basketball season on the
home maples by out-pointing Manhattan 28-22. Head Mentor Gerhardt Filtermann led
led his charges through an 18 game season, winning 9 and dropping 9 after facing per-
haps the roughest basketball schedule ever played by the Spartans.
Mid-season highlight was the invitational tournament where lim-Hi played host
to NVichita North, NWyandotte, and Coffeyville. Upset in the first round game by
Coffevville 32-21, the Spartans were then nosed out of third place, 32-30, in a nip-antl-
tuck ball game with XVyandotte.
Probably the heartbreaking loss of the season came at junction City, when the
Spartans lost a close decision, S1-SS, in an overtime.
Another exciting incident occurred when a last minute rally proved the difference
in tl Spartan 28-27 win over Arkansas City.
The regional play was the last of the season for the Spartans. Paired off against
Manhattan the Spartans rose to a -14-33 victory. The Spartans then encountered the
Salina quintet and were set back 55-57.

Emporia I-ligh's 1948 Sophomore squad was one of the most outstanding teams in
several years. Coached by Wood Bloxom, they met a tough schedule of schools includ-
ing the sophomore squads of Newton and E1 Dorado and "A" teams of Lebo, Americus,
Matfield, Cottonwood Falls, and Reading, meeting defeat only twice,
Two of these sophs, Jesse Prisock and Ralph Hahn, moved up to positions on the
"B" squad and Jesse climbed further up the ladder to win a major letter on the "A" team.
The success of this squad can be Contributed to their excellent teamwork and will-
ingness to stay in training. Nineteen boys were on the team at the end of the season.

"We're from Emporia and we couldn't be prouder-"
Yes, we are proud of our cheering section and justly so. The abundant pep of E. H. S. at all the
games is well known throughout the state.
Although there was no organized pep club this year, the entire school body turned out in large
numbers at every game to spur the boys on with hearty cheers and yells. The pep section was ably led
in the "A" games by five Seniors-three girls and two boys. They are Pat Nevins, Jane Hanna, Jo Riegle,
George Emrich, and James Fowler.
The junior cheerleaders were there at every game to inspire the "B" team on to numerous victories.
These five are Elizabeth Price, Marianne Hoch, Elizabeth jaquith, Rita jetty, and James Mullikin.
With their rousing cheers, the Spartans and Spartanettes did much to urge our team on to victories
and proving their excellent sportsmanship at defeats.

the screen. 3
On the set of the mlovie "Y. M. C. A." for Yonder More Cows Arej is the dynamic director Seymour

In the little theatrie off Times Square our guide informs us that Con White is finally on the
stage but is going to have to give it up because his hands get sore pulling the curtain every night.
We're told that if iou're traveling by car Mary jo Buck's face will appear on thousands of tooth-
paste ads and it seems li e old times.
The guide has recently been in a large city Cabout the size of Olpej and tells us of the things
he saw there. l
Ernest Russell is niw selling monogrammed handkerchiefs and Glenn Bergerhouse runs a "Burger-
house" down by the w terfront. The dime stores are run by Doris Anne Collinge and her assistant,
Helen Wellnitz. The cities super service station where you can tank up at low cost is operated by
Robert Schmidt, Bill Tiurner, and Bob Greenlee. Eugene Robinson is doing quite well as a billiard
ball and cue chalk saleiman.
Although they never won a Pulitzer Prize, books which are widely read are: "The Chaser or How
to Catch a Man" by Diana jones, "Marriage or Bust" by Barbara McClellan, and Eugene Kettner's
"Advice to the Lovelor ".
We ask our guide f spcrts have any Emporia High School athletes and find that Stanley Bostrom
is trainer for the New lYork jerkies, and Bill Smelser and Bernard Stewart are playing for the Chicago
Dubs. Dean "Sugarfooti" Staley and "Killer" Mickey Drake are to be matched soon in the world's
prizefighting championship where Staley will challenge Drake's title according to their press agents
"Front Page" jim Fowl-ir and Ray Lopez. The skating team of Belva Randolph and Peggy VanGordon
are to participate in thisl year's Olympics. Pat Shields will be there to sell popcorn.
Francis Hostetter ii in Alaska looking for a long-lost Em-Hi student and visiting Joan Kowalski
who is there on her honeymoon.
A well-known old folks home called "Pedagogue Paradise" is run by Chloe Funk and Harold Nuffer.
Some of the better known residents are Wood Bloxom, champion checker playerg Herbert James, bridge
sharkg Miss Virginia Foribeck, noted sociologistg Shirley Thompson, literary criticg and john R. Williams,
bacteriologist. They areiall living in luxury on the magnificena pension provided by the State of Kansas.
As it is about time for the show in the big top to begin, we thank the guide for his interesting
stories of our former classmates. He explains to us the way to return to the midway and we depart
happy to know what has happened to so many of our friends.
