Parsons, Kansas MR. H. W. SCOTT Miss Margaret Orpin As we seniors close the chapter of high school from our book of life and go out into the world to our lifetime work or to further our education, we will realize more and more the teamwork of the administration, teach- ers. students, custodians-All working to- gether during some of the happiest days of our life. With this foundation of leadership and co-operation, it becomes our goal to live up to these standards - having the right to say with pride, "My high school-Newton High-is tops with me!" We of the 1952 class wish to express our sincere appreciation. Gonducfofzs We, the Newton High School class of 1952, will always remember the friendly and efficient services of the administration. Superintendent H. W. Scott and Principal M. D. Morris, during their first year as coun- selors of our school, along with their assist- ants, Miss Margaret Orpin and Mrs. Pauline Bowman and the school board members, have done much to retain and even further the high standards accredited to our school. Newton schools have been recognized as among the best, and we Newtonians have the right to be proud of our capable execu- tives. MP M D MORRIS ' Mrs. Pauline Bowman "f",5,' E Pfsx :gig jug 1.

B19 glasts When we toddled off to school on that Sep- tember day, the track that led to our senior year seemed to stretch for miles. Standing on the first tie, gleaming rails ran through meadows, up and down rocky hills and finally disappeared in the hazy distance. Even though we looked until our eyes grew weary, we could not see the end of that track. Perhaps, at intervals, when we were trudging along the track of education, we asked ourselves if the last station would ever be reached. Now, with graduation, that question has been answered. Most of us have a perfect right to feel proud that our goal has been accomplished. We could have been derailed or stopped completely in our desire for education. Not all of our travel over the long miles of track was enjoyable and easy. Sometimes we stumbled over cinders and had to be assisted, often we had to watch our step care- fully in going over those rocky hills. Those of us, anxious to get on to the next station, would wait impatiently for the loafers who had stopped to look around. On various occa- sions it would have been easy to have given up completely, however, we kept struggling over the miles and after the summit of the steepest hill had been reached, we saw the finish line. Al- though most of us would not admit it, we were sorry to see that the last golden spike had been driven in our track of education. JUDIE MORGAN Class V. Pres. 45 MARY ANN GRISWOLD Class Sec.

Shop Team 3 4 if Y' meweil As Seniors, Newton High School is about to open its doors for us once more, only this time in EXIT. Our elementary and high school train- ing is now as passing landscape to us, the graduating class of 1952- passengers on Life's Train. Our long-looked-forward-to high school years have suddenly passed without undue warning. It is now even more up to us to keep our engines humming and headed in the right direction in order not to sidetrack al- though a slow, rough track may lie ahead. We, as Seniors, think back to our highlights of memorable scenes- to the advantages we have had, one of which was knowing Miss Theodora Grove, biology instructor and friend, who passed away September 18, 1951. Her passing was deeply felt by the class. One special attraction we have enjoyed has been the winning of new and better friends and working with them so that another record run could be made for us Newtonians and our home station, Newton High. Now again opportunities for hard work and achievement lie ahead, also the pitfalls, and easy paths lure with false promise. This is our fer- vent hope as summed up by those of old, "Grant that we may have the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change those things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference." l!.VliO'2S ---- im, 7-oofs if 'Za Y . t i TOP GROUP: Bat-lt row, lliek Asheraft, Larry Baller.

Q16 Students of the art department of NHS are not famous for their brush- offs, but rather for the brush-ons-the subtle touch of brush on canvas.

Many of the students of the art de- partment won awards for their draw- ings submitted in the Scholastic Re- gional Contest, sponsored by Allen W. Hinkle. Those who won gold keys were Alfred Miller and Max Penner. piwtogfzaplul The photography department is the only department in NHS Whose stu- dents shoot people-with cameras. The shutter-bugs have won many merits during 1951-1952 and have as their instructor, Mr. Leo Brandt. Mr. Brandt and students aid the Newtonian and Railroader by taking pictures of school functions. This opportunity not only helps learning photographers put in practice classroom study, but is ap- preciated by all Newton High. Several young photographers won awards for their pictures entered in the Scholastic Regional Contest. Winners of gold keys were David Claassen, Jim Laswell, Merle Frey, and Harold Rodgers. One of the largest squads in the history of Newton partici- pated in the invitational tourna- ments. Newton teams reached the semi-finals in the Topeka, Kansas City, Winfield and Haven tournaments, winning second place trophies at Win- field and Haven. This year Newton was desig- nated as one of the schools to host an annual invitational tour- ment. Fifty-four teams from 17 schools came in November for this tourney. Throughout the second semes- ter, debaters, as well as speech students, worked on orations, readings, extempore, declama- tion, informative and after din- ner speeches. Those who re- ceived ratings of highly superior in district competition were Helen Naylor, Reta Bowen and Darlene Okerberg. One of the highlights of the year came when Newton was admitted to the National For- ensic League. This entitled 15 students to qualify as members. A dream of past years came true for the first time on April 3, 1952. Newton high speech students collected enough points to win top honors in the Ark Valley Speech Tournament held at El Dorado. With that dream realized, all the hard work and long hours of practice put in by Mrs. Moore's speech students were well worth the efforts. Debate "Resolved: That all American Citizens Should be Subject to Conscription for Essential Ser- vice in Time of War" was the question argued by debaters this year. Another successful season was in prospect, but unfortu- nately the district tourney came when almost the entire first string was ill with the flu. Prob- ably this was a contributing fac- tor to a team taking third place in the contest. Top picture: Debaters study strategy.

The orchestra is always heard before the curtains open on a school play or operetta. This year the orchestra played before and during intermission when "Down In The Valleyf' t'Seven- teenth Summer," "The Little Dog Laughed," and "A Murder Has Been Arranged" were presented. In the spring, the instrumental de- partment gives two p1'ograms: An Instru- mental Spring Concert, and a concert ot the musical numbers that were played at the Music Festival, from which many hon- ors are always brought home. Newton High School students should be proud of their excellent opportunity for musical training. 5' Page Ezglnfen From the first roll of the drums and ring of trumpets as the Newton High School Band marches on the football field to the last strains of the Newton High School Orchestra at commencement, the Department of Instrumental Music, under the direction of E. S. Sanderson, has con- tributed much to our high school activities. A football game has never really begun until the gold and black clad band mem- bers play the lively marches which spur C214 on the crowd and team. School spirit is roused at a basketball game when the skillful baton of Mr. Sanderson exacts a rhythmic beat, as the band along with the cheerleaders leads the crowd in the singing of "The Ilailroader Song." During the academic year, the band, in the fall, journeys to the State Fair at Hutchinson where they perform before the crowds. The band and orchestra also participate in the High School Christmas Programs . l , , A a Y '. , ,UK vb,-, AF' F Page Nflnetwri i v, .

Glam Wanting to sing is the major requisite for being a member of the Newton High School Chorus. Tryouts are given at the beginning of the first semester to those who have signed-up for this elective. As the singing Railroaders develop power, rhythm is heard above the engine hum and the chorus mechanics, 61 fnon- unionb members, fill the car from tender to baggage, being directed by John D. Davidson. Engineer Davidson also directs the Girl's Glee Club, Boy's Glee Club, Madrigals and other various ensembles. Traveling on the right track, the double header Chorus and Girl's Glee Club put full steam ahead in presenting a Christmas program comprised of Christ- mas melodies and Fred Waring's " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas." A timely spring concert was also giv- en. This featured vocal numbers taken from supply section of Spring Festival ar- rangements where many honors were accredited to this department. Students can be proud of the knowledge, experience and good times their music department provided.

Glnefzeffa Highlighting the season for the New- ton High School vocal department was the operetta "Down In The Valley," by Kurt Weill. This was presented November 5, 1951 by the Railroader chorus, directed by John D. Davidson. The roles of the narrator and preacher were enacted by Bruce Loganbill. Re-ta Bowen portrayed Jennie Parsons, heroine, and Howard Oliver was Brack Weaver, hero. Duane Rowland was Thomas Bouche, villain, and Dick Ashcraft por- trayed Jennie's father-All hillbilly folk of the South. The curtain opened with the narrator telling the story to the audience about Brack Weaver, in jail and condemned to death. Later Brack escapes to meet his girl. Reminiscing about the past, he re- members when he met Jennie in church. Jennie and Brack had also gone square dancing. This is where they met Thomas Bouche. Bouche had previously asked Jennie to go dancing with him, thus he and Brack got into a fight, in which Bouche was killed. Returning to realiza- tion, Brack gives himself up. Stage scenery, being very modern to correspond with the modern music, was made by the art and manual training de- partments under the direction of Miss Marie Orr and Mr. Wayne Lyon. 'The chorus also gave "Down In The Valley," upon request, to the State Probate Judges Convention, November 19, 1951. 1. - Square dance scene from "Down In the Valley" Page T e 130 f , W 4 in if Q Senior Play, Donna Beeson, Sallie Love, Bill Foley, Judie Morgan, Hoyt Evlls, lmrle 0ke1'be1'p:, Gene Whitney, Pat Scott, Calolyn Pierre, Brum- Lognnlmill, Arlen Anderson Gloria Swarts, Gary Roy:-r, Beverley Lander. 'zamatics "Show Business" is the curicular study of the dramatics students. Under the direction of Miss Virnelle Jones, dramatic coach, students study and participate in pantomiming, acting, directing, playwriting, stage-managing, make-up, lighting, costuming, etc. Requests for entertainment from civic or- ganizations are met with response from this department. They headline these programs with one-act plays some of which are written and directed by students. Besides filling the position of teacher and coach of the drama de- partment, Miss Jones revived the Newton Thespian Troupe 47 into an active club. Twenty students were chosen as Thespian members. "Seventeenth Summer" was the delightful play given by the senior class this year under Miss Jones' :Bees on . ge Twenty-Two 3 direction. This class, last year, as Juniors, enacted "Men Are Like Streetcarsf' "A Murder Has Been Arranged" was this year's all-school play. Dramatics is an elective course which students enjoy while learning that through co-operation, a produc- tion is carried to its fulfillment.

They collect absence slips each day and check for open lockers, among numerous other things. Assisting Mrs. Pauline Bowman in the office this past year have been junior and senior girls chosen by Mr. Morris and Mrs. Mary Roberts.

The money earned by these organizations took care of expenses throughout the year. Hoyt Eells was the delegate sent to the Hi-Y Model Legislation at Topeka, November 30 and December 1. Meetings were held in the regular chambers of the State Legislature. After much discussion, the Hi-Y boys planned one party for the year. Then in the Spring, their fathers were cordially invited to attend the Hi-Y Father-Son Picnic. "To Find and Give the Best" is the motto of the Y-Teens. These girls accom- plished several worthwhile projects for the community during 1951-52. At Hal- loween, club members gave a program for the residents at Bethel's Home for the Aged. Apples and cookies were donated to the four homes in Newton. White Christmas gifts were given to a Newton family to make the holiday sea- son happier for them.

Bernie Castro, Jack Bannon, Jim Raffety, Victor McCall, Arthur Mc- Millan, Eddie Bell, and Bob Mellott com- pleted the first twelve. Newton brought home their eleventh con- secutive Regional and sixth straight Ark Valley crowns. All games this season were closely matched, many won by two and three point margins. This year's record stands 21 wins and 4 defeats. The highest margin the Railers lost by was six points to Parsons in their Invitational meet. Bill Brainard and Clarence Waters were the standout performers on this year's squad. Brainard was second scorer in the Valley, but was first in total points for the season. He was also top scorer in the state and the second New- tonian to play in the North-South compe- tition at Murray, Kentucky, in June. Waters was third in the Ark Valley scor- ers column. Both boys were selected on the All-State five. Don Bafus, rough- going junior, was placed on the mythical state second team.

Ah, that wonderful feeling of importance! Despite rain, snow, or below zero weather, the football games were a must. At the homecoming game, October 16, Edith Hershberger, Queen of Football, reigned. Her majesty, attended by Jean- nie Thomas and Marian Orpin, was driven to her throne in a red convertible. Seniors, after working long hours, gave the play, "Seventeenth Summer," on ' the evening of November 15. The two leading parts of Angie and Jack were por- trayed by Beverley Lander and Gary Royer. Then came basketball season. If you wanted to be sure of getting a good place to sit, the only thing to do was to come early. Fans were tense as the Railers fought for top honors, playing many close games against skilled opponents. Cheer- leaders, streaking across the floor in black and gold outfits, led excited students in peppy yells. Commencement Speaker, Franklin D. Murphy of Kansas University During the last few Weeks of school, se niors were racing about the halls with dazed expressions on their faces. Things were happening so fast-numerous activities to at- tend-a hundred and one things to do before graduation! Coming first in the spring events was the Senior Banquet. Seniors, dressed to the peak of perfection, had dinner together at the Ripley Hotel on May 4. Juniors had a chance to show off the talented people of their class when they en- tertained the seniors at the Junior-Senior Reception in Lindley Hall, May 8. Next on the social calendar came the Junior-Senior events held on May 14 and 15. What excitement as members of both classes battled for top honors in track, basket- ball and the fights. Seniors went back to those carefree childhood years on Kid Day, May 16. The "children" paraded across the stage showing numerous styles of youthful garments. Baccalaureate was held at Lindley Hall on May 18. Proud seniors put on their caps and gowns for this occasion. May 19 was a day crammed full of important moments. In the morning students gathered in Lindley Hall for Honor Assembly. Then the highlight of the year came in the evening with the Junior-Senior Prom. Couples gaily whirled around the gym floor to dreamy music played by an imported orchestra. The day of May 22 was the day for all seniors. Their years of high school were now completed. Commencement was held in Lindley Hall with Franklin D. Murphy from Kansas University addressing the seniors. With Ted Ice, Bill Brainard, Mary Ann Griswold, and Judie Morgan as class officers of 1951-52, most seniors felt that much had been accomplished. Yes, there are a lot of occasions and events to be remembered in that last short senior year. Paga .Fo rty-Sevcn c,. , .ff . l 4 S5552 Quia fz A W9 ffziiifw MW if Qfliwagrtdtff-QJ.
