Some of us will go to college, some to jobs, and some to home life. To us who are going, leaving high school is leaving a safe, secure part of our lives behind us for the experiences and even adventures of, as the old saying goes, "a life of our own," The knowledge we have gained from the administrators and teachers will serve as a considerable boost on our way in the world. Under the guidance of the present administration, our school has up- held the high scholastic standards, and tra- ditions it has always carried. MARGARET ORPIN Our Senior Class, like many others be- fore us, has been lucky in having such a competent and understanding staff to direct us through the time spent in high school. It has been said, you never forget the won- derful years spent in high school, and we wonlt. We think Mr. M. D. Morris, our principal, and Mr. II. W. Scott, our superintendent, all the teachers and coaches, deserve high recognition for their fine work. We also .would like to mention the long hours put in by the office girls, Mrs. Florence Blanken- ship in the Senior High Office and Miss Margaret Orpin in the Superintendent's Office.

Page Si enlcfzs That first day we started out for school it seemed as though the track which led to our senior year had no end. Remember how we would often stop, and standing on the first tie we could see only miles and miles of gleaming rails which ran on and on, seemingly forever. We trudged on, at times courageously and sometimes rather uncertainly, along the track of education. This track was built for us, to enable us to reach a brighter, happier future. Perhaps at times we wondered if the last station would ever be reached. Now at last we have reached that goal which we have worked and struggled so long to achieve. We feel proud of our accomplishment, for it has been a long, hard journey. Many times we might have been derailed or stopped completely in our desire for education. If our trainmasters had not assisted us as we stumbled over cinders. Many of us, anxious to reach the next station on the track of education, would become weary with the loafers and we were often tempted to give up completely: yet someone, perhaps some other train- man, urged us onward until at last we reached the last hill. That hill was the steepest one and as we reached the summit, we saw, for the first time, the finish line, the last station on the track. 'lNow, as we look back we realize, though it was a long' hard pull it was well worth our while. Though We do not admit it, we feel a twinge of sorrow as we witness the last golden spike being driven into our track of education.

This classroom is the home of the "shutter bug" fans who can often be seen taking a picture of almost anything imaginable around school, especially in good weather. From the first picture taken with their own camera, the students learn the basic principles of photography, from develop- ing the negative to printing the finished picture. The amateur photographeifs school year is full of interesting learning. Under laboratory work is learrning dark room procedure of devel- oping and printing pictures. The classroom work includes learning picture composition, negative judging, study of enlarging technique, study of different films, their speeds and sensitivities, and the artful use of filters. Some techcnical study is made of the production of color pictures. Jim Johnson and Lewis Bartel at work in the darkroom. Gut Students taking art or crafts under Miss Marie Orr found an opportunity to express their talents in many fields. The individual's impres- sions of life around him were recorded in clay, oil, water color, ink, and pastels. Others spent the year working in silver jewelry, metal, and leather. A spacious classroom and excellent facilities added to the student's creative ability. The main room with skylights, the two smaller rooms and the pottery room are equipped for many uses in the life of the potential artist. One of the highlights of the year was the annual art awards given by the Allen W. Hinkle Company and Scholastic Magazine for those who placed in the Regional Scholastic Art Contest. Two Gold Achievement keys were presented to Alfred Miller, with Janice Dillman, Carol Ewing, and Louis Sandoval, each receiving one.

Debate "Resolved: That the Atlantic Pact Nations Should Form a Federal Union," was the topic chosen for debate this year. The Newton high school debate squad enjoyed a very successful season. The team, which was composed almost entirely of first year students, was comparative- ly inexperienced at the beginning of the year. Lois Cowan and Greta Goering were the only returning debaters. This year the squad participated in tourneys at Russell, Haven, and Wyan- dotte. They wonhthe first place trophy at the district debate tournament at Wichita, which earned them a trip to the state tourney. Senior dehaters, Lois Cowan. Greta Goering. and Ned Arthur pose with the trophies. In February, the debate squad proudly brought home the second place trophy after making a fine record at the State Debate Tour- nament at Lawrence. Throughout the second semester, debaters. as well as speech students, worked on orations, readings, extempore, declamation, informative and after dinner speeches. Those who received ratings of highly superior in district competi- tion were Ned Arthur, Jim Cadle, Jerry Hertzler, Lois Cowan, and Dick Gregg. The big highlight of the year came when Newton high speech students collected enough points to win first place at the Ark Valley Speech Festival for the second consecutive year. A very successful year proved the worth of hard work and long hours of practice on the part of Mrs. Moore's speech students. IjPl'DHif'I'S Rich ard Mc-ek.

Orem Highlight this year for chorus students of Newton High School was the opera "The Medium" by Gian-Carlo Menotti. January 28, 1953 was the first time this weird, modern opera has been pre- sented by a high school group. Jan Lehman played the part of Madame Flora, Monica, her daughter, was portrayed by Donna Underwood 5 Eddie Anderson was Toby, the mute Gypsy boy living with Madame Flora. Mr. and Mrs. Gobineau and Mrs. Nolan were played by Howard Oliver, Pat Skene and Jean Ralph, respectively. Accompanying were pianists Dorothy Briggs and Sharon Regier. 4 . ,, , , Morbid black scenery and white furniture was the setting for this tragedy about Madame Flora, who led people to believe she communicated with the dead. During one of her seances, she was frightened by an imaginary hand. She blamed Toby for this and drove him away. When he sneaked back to see Monica, with whom he had fallen in love, Madame Flora thought he was her ghost and shot him. The curtains closed with Madame Flora hysterically weeping over his body and crying "Was it you ?" Everyone turned in a fine performance of this difficult opera to the applause of many spectators.

Davidson, chorus instructor, also directed the Girl's Glee Club, Boy's Glee Club, the Madrigals and other ensembles. The mixed chorus, Girl's Glee Club and the Madrigals presented a Christmas program com- prised of both new and old Christmas melodies. A spring concert was also presented by the groups.

Through the capable leadership of the officers and sponsors, the group has accomplished much during the past year. Besides their weekly meetings, they have been active in school and civic activities by pre- senting a program at the Old Folks Home on Halloween, sending representatives to the Fall Conference, and operating a concession stand at the football games with the help of the Hi-Y. The Y-Teens have also sent food to the needy at Christmas, held a parent party, and elected new officers for next year. It is easy to see the Y- Teens is an outstanding organization. HI-Y CABINET MEMBERS: Standing, Mr. Don Petersen, Mr. J. Birch Don Schroeder, Dick Ashcraft, and Mr. A. R. Self. Seated, Bob Simpson One of the most prominent groups at New- ton High is the Hi-Y organization. Much has been accomplished by this fine group in the past year. During football season the group helped the Y-Teens operate a concession stand at the games. At Christmas they helped the Y-Teens fill bas- kets for the needy. The Hi-Y held a meeting every week, alter- nating them with group and cabinet meetings. At various meetings speakers talked to the group, the dramatic classes presented programs, and films were shown to the group. With the fine co-operation of its leaders and members, the group has experienced a successful year. G Stuart. Robert Challans, Loren Obley, Bob Raffety, Lewis Boyd. and Howard Oliver.

In their first Ark Valley outing the Railers were upset by Wellington 37-31 on the local court. After the Wellington game the Trainmen won 7 straight games before dropping a 47-45 decision to Inman in the Dodge City Tournament.

One week later, the North High Redskins prevented the Railers from attending the state tournament, by defeating the Railers in the finals of the Regional Tournament at Wichita 68-65. The Railers ran into trouble in out of town games as they met six of their seven defeats while playing on a foreign court. Injuries also hampered Railer play as John Reese and Bob Mellott suffered sprained ankles which prevented them from playing in two games. Reese and Bafus were selected for the All Valley Honor Roll, and Castro received honorable mention. Bafus and Cadle led the Railers' scoring, averaging more than 13 points per game.

Page Forty-Six fm-.....,. enivzs afzewell Little did we realize 13 years ago, when we boarded the train of education, we were emerging on a journey of such im- portance. The doors have opened and closed for us at various stations and now once again the conductor is beckoning to us, "Last stop, this trip. Everybody off!" Yes, once again the doors of Newton High School are opening for us, only this time as an EXIT. We are about to emerge on an even greater jour- ney than the one which we are now completing. We will soon become passengers on Life's Train. After the evening of May 22, when we receive our diplomas, we will realize that our long-looked-forward-to high school days are suddenly behind us. A little bewildered, hesitant, excited and filled with anticipation, we will be preparing for the rough track which lies ahead. We must keep our engines humming and headed in the right direction. As Seniors, we look back to the highlights of memorable scenes-the advantages and privileges which we have enjoyed throughout our years of high school. We have enjoyed the winning of new and better friends. With the help of our fellow-Railers we have worked towards making another record run at our home station, Newton High. Once again opportunities for further achievement lie ahead of us, yet there are also the pitfalls, and smooth tracks lie ahead with the lure of false promise. Our hopes for the future are summed up in the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson when he said, "The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what he can do, nor does he know until he has tried." ty-S Quia MPLS Q?-xg ' g f5T5:T52'f2HL 1Qu5g9ulQiqL fm, Nm -gi 1
