As sophomores, forty-sixers entered this
hall of learning, a little bewildered, perhaps, but
eager to gain the knowledge offered them. Wan-
dering through a maze of algebra-English-
social studies-Latin-these seekers of the truth
at long last attained the rank of SENIOR.
Amidst a flurry of banquets, inter-class
contests, dances and assemblies the Railers
finally arrived at the culmination of their high
school interlude, commencement, and journeyed
into a new world-through these portals.
To Principal Frank L.
Lindley, the guiding
light for many a Hail-

In honor of thirty
years of service to New-
ton high school as its
principal, thirty years of
willingness to undertake
the solving of student
problems, thirty years
of faithful school admin-

a counselor, Principal
Lindley's patience in
hearing students' ques-
tions, his guidance and
his ability to instill con-
fidence in the student

FRANK L. LINDLEY
principal also became known throughout the f
tire Midwest for his successful basketball coac
ing. During this 30 year period, Lindley-coached
basketeers won 18 Ark Valley, 24 regional and?
nine Kansas state court titles.
Devoting his full time to administrative re-
sponsibilities, this year marked the end of Mr.
Lindley's active basketball coaching.

The student council of 1945-46 started
the year Without a president, but the
school soon took care of this unusual
situation by holding a special election.
Jack Phillips Was the only candidate.
Beside taking care of the routine
activities of the school in general, the
council, for the first time in several years,
set up a schedule of assemblies. The
assemblies along with the school dances
were the two ,main considerations of this
year's student governing body. With the
help of his committee, Chairman Lee Reiff
took on the responsibilities of assemblies,
and, according to student opinion, the
new program was enthusiastically
received. . '
School dances, which are fast becom-
ing an integral part of school life, were
introduced through the council in the year
1942-43. Since that time an average of
six dances have been given every year.
The Roundhouse, local jive dive, is usual-
ly the scene of these festivities. Dorothy
Jane Trousdale acted as chairman of this

Senior Class of 1946
The class of '46, the smallest class to be
graduated from Newton high school in more than
a decade, began their high school career in high-
er learning as freshmen numbering 247.
Unnatural conditions caused by World War
II were in part responsible for 104 dropping from
class rolls during the high school interlude. High
Wages, employment in war factories and home
industries and the call to service were among the
reasons for some who dropped from classroom
' 5' iFinally, the class of '46 with 143 left on the
roll entered the last mile of the journey to get
a high school diploma. g

' Year, as a
J SWAN 0.4.
Down through the annals of
time, graduation has caused the
resemblance between wistful sen-
ior visages and the bottom face
on a totem pole to become remark-
able. It isn't until those last few
weeks of rush, bother and hurry
that seniors realize they won't be
coming back next year. They con-
stantly fill the air with 'tremember

all had at Harvey County
Park . . . mud, snakes 'n all.
No one is going to forget that
hectic, but wonderful week at the
state tournament. Boy, was that
the life! An' to think that our
fellas were the ones to walk off
with that mammoth trophy, too
. . . well, gee whiz!
Now gabbing about 'Uway
back whens," do you remem-

which bloomed and faded and
bloomed again? Or those
"perennials" that collected
Stardust clear from frosh hall
up through senior alley?
Leafing through yellowed pages
of the '41-'42 Newtonians, we
found Shrimp Oliver making
goobie eyes at Carr Besemann 'n
he didn't seem to mind one speck!
The whole school was buzzing
about dashing Taki Fotopoulos of

By the creation of a new commit-
tee, freshmen girls were allowed to
join the senior Girl Reserves this
year for the first time. This addi-
tion went under the name of the
Worship committee, and was respon-
sible for the devotions used in gen-
eral meetings of the organization.
The main event of the year for the
Girl Reserves was G. R. Week. This
is an annual celebration during which
every active member is kept busy.
In the course of this Week, the mem-
bers entertained their fathers at a
Dad-Daughter frolic and their moth-
ers With a Mother-Daughter tea. On
their regular club day, small notes
of affection were exchanged among
the girls. This annual interchange
of "love notes" has become a stand-
ing custom. In honor of the faculty
members, a tea was given them by
the Girl Reserves during this week
Girl Reserve officers for this year
were: Jessie Hawley, president,
Beverly Steiner, vice-president, Mary

IIasn't this year been wonderful though?
From the first day of school, when we all marched
quietly into our American history classes, to
Baccalaureate and Commencement.
We had quite an argument at the senior class
meeting over the question of having a hayrack
ride or skating party-, as a means of spending
our class dues. But due to the fact that there
were too many complications connected with the
former, the class unanimously voted for a skating
party, which was held Monday, December 10.
Oh what fun, trying to skate! Between the
spills, chills and banged heads, most of us were
put out of commission for practically a week.
The Virginia reel was quite the thing at the
senior-sponsored school dance. Everyone was so
tired from "capering" around that you could
almost consider the sighs given out as a sign of
relief. It was fun hearing a group of the senior
boys giving their all in a few popular ditties.
Presentation of the senior assembly went
along very smoothly until Grimm's "One-finger
Concerto" came out into the open. Then the
laughter W ' so continuous through the "Story
of Williamaiellu and the boys' t'Quarto," that

their last dinner together.
May 4th, the day of the Girl Reserve break-

were both highlights of the year.
