77951 Railroader Published by the Senior Class of Newton High School Newton, Kansas The Staff Editor-in-Chief: Pat Flinn Associate Editors: Diane Darling Kenny Schlender Adviser: Alden Allbaugh Photography: Leo Brandt Printing: Kansan Printing Engraving: Sun Engraving Company, Parsons i Page Tim JOHN B. HEFFELFINGE R Dedication it To Superintendent John B. Heffelfinger, in recognition of his distinguished leader- ship and devoted service through twenty- eight years as head of the Newton city schools, the Class of 1951 respectfully and affectionately dedicates this book. Company, Newton Company. Appreciation The Railroader staff expresses sincere appreciation to Leo Brandt photography in structor, for many hours spent in taking pictures, developing and printing them for this book. Thanks to Teri y Lee Merryman who posed for division page picture The staff is also grateful to H W Scott Senior class sponsor, to Beverly Lander for art work which has been used in the book and to Senior journalism students for assistance with writing copy. Much credit must go to persons connected with the Kansan Printing Memories By MARILYN BROWN September: School was started, everyone gay, This year was the end for the Seniors, Hooray! Cheerleaders, monitors, and officers were selected, Senior class president Bocock elected. After the state fair came football and thrills Cheering and yelling, bumps and spills. The Senior Kick-Off party was quite an affair Refreshments and dancing, fun for everyone there. Newtonian and Railroader staffs were chosen by Allbaugh, We think he's the nicest guy We ever saw. October: The time to choose a queen for Old King Football came, All nominees were so fair 'twas hard to pick the name: Lovely Diane Darling was the one to win this race, Pretty attendants Branine and Fotopoulos set a speedy pace. "Pride and Prejudice," the senior play, was really some production, The cast and crews were grand, and that's a true deduction. November: Phyllis McMillan was presented the DAR award, Citizenship, patriotism, dependability were the points on which she scored. The mothers served the football boys a dinner quite delishg They had a cake shaped like a gridiron and chicken on a dish. December: The Christmas dance was very nice, good times were had by allg The decorations were cute and smart, it was a lovely ball. Four teams were at the tournament that was held in Lindley Hall, Though Newton took the second place, they really played good ball. The debaters took a little trip, they journeyed to Hutch: Second place was won by them and that is pretty much. Then they went to El Dorado for another meet, Goering and Baird took first place, a typical Railer feat. January: The first semester was at an end and everything was hummin', The exams were taken and then, of course, second semester was comin'. After 28 years as superintendent, Mr. Heffelfinger has retired. Mr. Scott will relieve him, a new history teacher is required. Po 1 l J Page Four Superintendent John B. Heffelfmxzer: Principal Prank Lindley: Associate Principal H. W. Scott: Miss Carmnlita Suttlc- and Mrs. Ruth Grahill, se-1-1'eta1'ie-s. Friendly Counselors The Class of 1951 will always bear a special distinction. They will be remembered as the last class to be graduated from Newton High School during the administration of Superintendent John B. Heffelfinger who, before the opening of another school year, will retire after 28 years as head of the Newton school system. Under Mr. Heffelfinger's administra- tion, Newton schools have been distinguished as among the best, and Newtonians have known many occasions on which to be proud of the achievements of students and teachers in many activities. The Class of 1951 also pays tribute to Principal Frank Lindley and Associate Principal H. W. Scott for their helpful, friendly and sympathetic leadership during many memorable days at Newton High School. TOD Row: ALDEN ALLBAUGH Journalism, Dramatics OLIVE L.

Students in Miss Marie Orr's arts and crafts classes and Leo Erandt's photography classes received training and experience in creative expression which, if continued throughout post- school days, will provide worthwhile leisure time activity and perhaps profitable vocations. Lawrence Davenport, Joan Marsh, Elma Lough and Alfred Miller received cherished Gold Achievement Keys for work entered in the regional Scholastic art contest at Wichita. Davenport was one of a few student artists throughout the nation to receive a National Scho- lastic Art Award scholarship. Elma Lough was chairman of the Art Service Committee which provided posters and other displays used to promote many school activities during the year. Other committee mem- liers were Beverly Lander, Sue Kitching, Joan Marsh, James Rose, Rosalyn Tipton and Alice oewe. Artists gave performances of living pictures of famous paintings of the Christmas story before two Newton groups. Crafts students made many Christmas gifts and other useful articles. At the end of the year, arts and crafts students made decorations for several stu- dent banquets. Miss Orr and the art department also entertained the state art teachers convention. Photography Students Don Royston, Marvin Smith and Barbara Parker won honorable mention awards in the regional Scholastic photography contest. In addition to work with his students, Mr. Brandt spent many hours doing photography for the Newtonian and Railroader.

Four second place trophies were taken at the Salina, Hutchinson, Wichita North and Wyandotte invitational tournaments. During the second semester, orations, readings, extempore, informa- tive and after dinner speaking occupied the speech activities. Ted Ice, Gloria Swarts and F. L.

Journalism Assigning stories to the reporters, editing copy, writing headlines, correcting proofs, making-up the pages, writing ads and selling them, learning to shoulder responsibility were among the experiences of the editors of the Newtonian. The result of their efforts was read by hundreds of students and by subscribers scattered from coast to coast. Meanwhile, editors of the Railroader were planning pages, trimming pictures, writing copy and identification for this book. The aim of both groups was to record in picture and story a history of the 1950-'51 school year at Newton High. The Newtonian staff included Winifred Blankenship, editor-in-chief, F. L. Baird, managing editor, Anne Crepps, news editor, Rita Cooke, associate news editor, Marilyn Brown, feature editor, Dorothy Kaufman, associate feature editor, Kendall Hay, sports editor, Bob Millner, Ken Schlup and Keith Schlup, associate sports editors, Mary Jane Botterweck, Jerry Jacobson and Jim Hershberger, business managers, Mary Frances Bohl, circulation manager.

Under the direction of Alden Allbaugh, those inter- ested in the dramatic side of life, as an avocation or, who knows, maybe a vocation, are given a chance to learn by experience. Classroom work consists of study of the drama, radio, motion pic- tures, theatrical makeup, reading of plays and putting on one-act plays. The plays which are prepared by the students are often loaned out for programs here in town or many times in the country schools. Mr. Allbaugh also takes care of selecting casts and directing the class plays. Under his direction, this year's Senior group presented "Pride and Prejudice" adapted from the novel of Jane Austen. Last year, as Juniors, they enacted t'Mother ls a Freshman." The Junior class this year presented the comedy, 'tMen Are Like Street Cars." Left, SCENE FROM "MOTHER IS A FRESHMANI' seated: F. L.

The 1950 grid team. with 12 returning lettermen, started the season with a 13 to 12 last quarter loss to the Hays Cadets. But they bounced back in the second game of the season to trounce Ark City -10 to 1,1 for Newton's first Ark Valley victory since the 1947 season. Then the powerful Wichita East Aces handed the optimistic Hailers a resounding 33 to 6 defeat. Although the Trainmen scored twice in the last half to tic Hutchinson 13 to 13, they suffered a major setback when Jim Shepler, co-captain and half-back, received a broken leg. ,ww FOOTBALL SQUAD, front row: Harold Fauchier, Eldon Akers, Vernon Smith, Jim Bowman, Duane Howard, Ha-rlnic McCoy, Burt Schmidt, Kenny Kennard, Jim Sheplcr, John BOVV0l'SOI'li,- Jack Merritt.

Basketball The 1950-'51 basketball season was another to be long remembered, with the Railer cagers placing second in the State tournament, losing in the finals to Wichita East. Coach John Ravenscroft's team gave Newton the Regional tourney championship for the eleventh straight year. In the Ark Valley race which was one of the closest in many a season, the Railers, who had captured the league title five years in a row, shared first place with East. The Railroaders lost four games during the season, all to Wichita teams, bowing to North in the first contest of the year, to St. Mary's in the finals of the Newton invitational tournament and twice to East. One of the highlights of the season of 22 victories was the Railers' comeback in their first game with East. Newton trailed by 14 points early in the first half. But in a red hot final quarter drive, led by scoring twins Ken Schlup and Lawrence Davenport and climaxed by Kenny Kennard's winning goal, the Railers edged the Aces 65 to 63. Schlup hit 23 points and Davenport 21. Three-year lettermen Davenport and Schlup were placed on the All-Ark Valley first five, Gene Smith was named to the second team, and Jim Tangeman and Don Quiring gained honorable mention. Davenport captured a berth on the All-State quintet while Schlup and Smith were on the second team. Marlo Reimer received honorable mention for his outstanding showing at the tourney.
