Yes, our dreams are being realized-How many times did We Wonder if We would ever make it? Well, We did and here We are, Seniors! But the days are fading rapidly into the time when, as the song says, "We will pass and be forgotten like the rest." True, We may be for- gotten by those Who follow us, but not too easily will We forget the many glorious times We have experienced. Though many of us may never meet again after graduation, We will be together in each other's memories. And our high school days will linger with us.

An.. 4 I Q 5 ,,, Page Fiftmfu Uzensic Adding four trophies to the large collection in Room 308, the debaters ended a successful season at the State Tournament in Lawrence. Resolved: That the President of the United States should be elected by direct vote of the people, was the topic discussed by the high school debaters throughout the Nation. The top team included Dick Gregg, Jerry Hertzler, Allen Gray, Midge Werner, Dick Thorn- ton, and Richard Meek. . Long hours of practice after school and in the evenings plus an excited last minute search for rebuttal boxes, speeches, and manuals, is the preparation for a tournament. Checking in at hotels, drinking 7-Ups for breakfast, and the em- barrassment of flying rebuttal cards in the semi- finals is all a part of a debate tournament. The debaters often times find themselves loaded down with brief cases, rebuttal boxes, dictionaries, and debate handbooks, standing awkwardly in the middle of an exclusive tea room while in search for a drug store. Winding up the trips, long and controversial discussions, describe and analyze the judges, time-keepers, opponents and audi- ences. Bra ,ll ior Debatorsa Allen Gray, Dick Thornton, Dan Turner, Martin dshaw, Jerry Hertzler, and Richard Meek. "Madam Chairman, members of the opposi- tion, pivotal states, majority rule, fraud and cor- ruption, and vitriolic invectivesf' were familiar phrases at the end of the season. Successful tournaments were Topeka, Win- field, Kansas City and the district at Wichita where Newton placed first. Carol Douglas, Beverly Godsey, Dick Gregg, Elisa Simons, Douglas Cain, James Unruh, Mar- tin Bradshaw and Nancy Hogan, were the first year debaters. Last semester the debaters worked on orig- inal and standard orations, dramatic, and humor- ous readings, informative, after dinner speeches, with the hopes of winning Sweep Stake for the third consecutive year. Future debators give their undivided attention to a fellow student. N Page Sixteen Here are shown some of the promising art students produced by the cl of 1954. Gut The students who took arts and crafts under the supervision of Miss Marie Orr were given every opportunity to develop their artistic tal- ents. Working in one of the state's best equipped class rooms these smock clad enthusiasts have turned out many attractive and original works in clay, oil, water color, ink, charcoal and pastels. They have also tried their hands at working with silver, metal and leather. With pallets and the other equip- ment usually associated with artists, these Rembrandts of NHS have made posters for the all-school activities and club meetings. Dick Thornton, an as- piring art student, designed the division pages for this Railroader. rawi n One of the events which highlighted the year and brought well earned rec- ognition to the art students, was the Annual Scholastic Art Awards Cere- mony which was held at Hinkel's in Wichita last February. Thirteen stu- dents received honors. Two Gold Achievement Keys were presented to Carol Sue Ewing for her water colors and Randall Pierce received one for his charcoal. Added to the art dcpar1ment's classes this yi-ar was Applied Design. mechanfca fzawin Two ideas are stressed in Mechanical Draw- ing. They are worthy home membership and pre- vocational drawing. Students learn to draw house plans, and make house arrangements. They study internal combustion engines such as the car en- gine. Methods of drawing used in aircraft indus- tries are taught, and a background of manufac- turing processes is given.

Sanderson, has again chalked up a successful year to its credit. Consisting of 100 members, the band started the school year by playing at the football games and going through their Various formations at half times. They Wound up their 1953-54 sched- ule by playing at the Regional Tournament held in Lindley Hall. G14 This year a new note was added when the twirlers performed during half time at the bas- ketball games. Drum major for this year has been Vernal Miller. The twirlers were Donna McKanna, Eunice Barrett, Marilyn Ewy, Helen Buller, and Janice Ervin. Page Eighteen Gfzclmesffza The Newton High School Orchestra has suc- cessfully completed its schedule for another year. Composed of 100 members and directed by E. S. Sanderson, the orchestra has participated in many of the school functions this year. November 17 they played for the seniors production of "Love Is Too Much Trouble", the operetta, "Hansel and Gretel," January 265 the junior play, "Curtain Going Up!" February 193 and "Cuckoos on the Hearth," the all-school play on April 23. Instead of entering the District Music Fes- tival at Hutchinson this year, the combined band, chorus and orchestra arranged to have an ex- change program with Kingman. Kingman presented its program in Lindley Hall, January 12, so the NHS musicians traveled to Kingman for the return concert, April 9. The solos and ensembles, however, did enter the Dis- trict Contest. December 14 the orchestra and chorus pre- sented a Christmas program. In May all the instrumental groups, the grade school musicians included, presented their spring concert.

Davidson concluded a busy year With many public appearances to their credit. The choral group's first program was given December 14 and was composed of various Christmas selections. The chorus also made sev- eral Christmas recordings for radio stations KJRG and KAKE which were played during the Christmas Week. Thirty-six members of the chorus attended the District music festival April second and third, usic where several students received superior and excellent ratings. The chorus gave a Valentine assembly con- sisting of love songs appropriate to the occasion. They also gave several other assemblies during the year. The entire group journeyed to Kingman April 9 for an exchange assembly for the King- man High School. All in all, the department had a very success- ful season With their appearances.

The operetta was presented in three acts and was under the direction of J. D. Davidson. The fantasy followed the fairy tale, which gives the story of two little children lost in the woods, who are tempted by a beautiful cottage. The cottage is owned by a greedy old witch who makes ginger-bread cookies out of little girls and boys. In the end Hansel and Gretel outsmart the witch by pushing her into the oven. As the oper- etta comes to a close, the father and mother ap- pear and a chorus of thanksgiving is heard. Hansel was played by Elizabeth Nickel and his sister, Gretel, by Judy Stroud. Peter and Gertrude were portrayed by Randall Schmidt and Lois Claassen. The Sand Fairy was Judy Enns and the Dew Fairy, Beverly Oliver. Ellen Dingwall played the part of the Witch. The 14 angels who stood at the foot of the children while they were sleeping in the woods and also the gingerbread boys were played by Donna Budde, Dorothy Byler, Naomi Claassen, Gwendo- lyn Entz, Gail Girndt, Marilyn Hodel, Karen Kelso, Beverly Pierce, Marcia Royer, Carol Schmidt, Susan Schmidt, Arletta Shepler, Joan Voth and Eleanor Wedel.

Lost play books Were the theme of the junior play, "Curtain Going Up." It is the story of the production of a high school play and the many complications that arise, such as the dis- appearance of the play books at the first rehear- sal, and a set of comically crossed-up high school romances. "Cuckoos on the Hearth," the three-act mys- tery comedy presented as the all-school play told a story of weird happenings in a lonely house in Maine one night during a violent blizzard. Arriv- ing that night as mysterious visitors were an eccentric author of horror stories and three other strangers, a bearded foreigner, a gangster, and a pretended minister. While all the time an escaped strangler from an asylum was lurking near. The year of 1954 proved to be a truly won- Shown here is just one ol' many hilarious moments throughout the , play.

Dramatics classes were held in Room 207 under the coaching of Mr. Allbaugh, dramatics instructor. "Love Is Too Much Trouble" was the play which was presented by the seniors this year. The play was a comedy which had its setting on a college campus. It took place at the 'fpoison pot," a favorite hangout for the college kids. The dramatization centered around the problems and troubles of college life and the activities that took place at this hangout.

In the Newtonian much hard work and planning must be accom- plished before the final paper rolls off the press. Each cub and editor has his own important job that must be completed to the final detail before the paper even goes to press. The cubs must hunt out and write the stories before the deadline comes due. The editors in turn must copyread, write, rewrite, make headlines and proof-read before the stories are pasted on the page dummy. Then last the final rush to the Kansan with the completed make-up and awaiting proudly the day the paper is sent out, knowing that they had a part in the sweat and work of each issue. This year's Newtonian staff includes, Nancy Becraft as editor-in-chief and news editor, Jane Cornick. Associate news editors were Ellen Kaye Cummings and Don Peterson. Shirlee Marlow was feature editor and Marilyn Nelson was her asso- ciate. Sports editor was Loren Obley with his associate being Jim Raffety. Dorothi Donnelly was business manager, adver- tising manager and morgue chief and circulation manager and exchange editor was Glenna Pummill. The Newtonian, living up to previous records again re- ceived a first class rating by the National Scholastic Press Association for the fall semester. Being judged on content, coverage, make-up, headlines and typography, the Newtonian received a total score of 1710 points. Senior Cubs on th Dorothi Donnelly and Glenna Pummi .

They have given their time and sup- port to the team at every possible mo- ment, and with their rousing cheers kept spirits high at all the games. They were on hand at the pep rallies and assemblies lending their pep and energy to the Hailer "cause" This year the cheerleaders went to work on the yells. They made up some new ones and gave some of the old ones a face lifting by working up some new actions. Besides the new actions they have discovered that some of the boys are good acrobats. Their uniforms are the same this year as they were last, white and gold with black letters. This year's original squad had to make some changes before the end of the year. The alternates, Jean Kinser and George Bueker took the places of Marcia Morgan and Jim Suderman.

Meeting every Wednesday morning during the regu- lar activity period the two representatives chosen from each class plan the parties, assemblies, dances and "Roundhouse." A few of the many events planned by the student council which have highlighted the year were the Sock Hop and the Coronation Dance. One of its many aims is to keep the sportsmanship and spirit at the high level always associated with New- ton High. The sportsmanship at the games and the enthusiastic co-operation and support the student body exhibited at school functions are attributed to this fine group of energetic workers which compose the student council.

The groups held joint meetings at Christmas and to observe Career Day. Over 316 bags were folded by the Y-Teens for hospitals, and they distributed baskets of fruit and cookies to the Bethel Home for Aged, the Presbyterian Home, and Spangler Nursing Home. Cash, hose, and mittens were sent to the Navajo Indians at Christmas time. The 216 members bought a grocery coupon book for an elderly woman during the Christmas season and contributed money to the Christian Children's Fund, World Fellowship, and Korea. Y-Teen Officers: Marilyn Hodel, Secretary: Eleanor Wedel, Vice-President: Marcia Mor- gan, Treasurer: Miss Whitted. head sponsor: Winifrud Tang:-man, President. A Y-Teen Halloween party was held in Octo- ber and a Mother-Daughter party in May. The Hi-Y alternated with the Y-Teens in using the auditorium during the year. At vari- ous times in general meetings the boys heard some interesting speakers and saw entertaining pictures. Ice cream sandwiches were served at several general meetings. During the Christmas season the boys deco- rated the balcony above the front door with Christmas trees and lights. Money was also donated to the needy at this time. lli-Y Ul'l'ir'1i':- for this yin: were Koliort Stratton.

Qu Club The Artonians, the Newton Art Club, was organized in October, 1953 with a two-fold pur- pose-to promote good fellowship among art stu- dents and to sponsor exhibits, films, talks, and all art activities in the school. Meetings were held on the second Tuesday of each month. Special art programs were given by members and outside talent. Artonians could often be seen on excursions and sketching trips during the spring. From this group several members who qualified were selected to become members of the National Honorary Art Club. , An exhibit was held May 7 to show to par- ents and friends the work done this year by the members. esirian The Newton High School Dramatics Depart- ment is a member of the National Thespian Society. The most important meeting of the year was the May meeting at which a group of juniors and seniors were initiated. The juniors initiated into this club will carry on next year as officers and senior members of the club.

The members met every two months in Room 307 with Miss Olive Anderson, sponsor. The meetings consisted of a program with either a guest speaker or talks on Spanish-speaking countries and singing Spanish songs. Presiding over the meetings were, Susan Schmidt, presidentg Marilyn Wilson, secretary, and Sally Monarez, songleader.

An average of 12 students met each Thurs- day after school in Room 100 to read products of the pen of The Bard of Avon. Perhaps the aim of the club is shown best in this statement by Mrs. McBeth, "There is a renewed appreciation of the values of a liberal education. A knowledge of Shakespeare's plays is certainly part of our cultural heritage." This year the club has read several well- known plays. Some of the most popular were "The Comedy of Errors," "Taming of the Shrew," "King Lear," "The Twelfth Night" and possibly the most popular "Romeo and Juliet."

The Railers, coached by Curtis Fischer, and assistants Don Hoffman and Ira Barkman, placed guard, Jerry Smith on the all Ark Valley and All State squads. He also received honorable mention in the nation. To begin the season the Railers traveled to Dodge City and were defeated 33 to 14. This was the first game ever played between the two schools. The following week the Railroaders bowed to a surprisingly strong Wichita West team, the newest member of the Valley, by a score of 21 to O. Louis Sandoval, quarterback, broke an arm during the following week of practice, and was out for most of the season. The Newton eleven tasted defeat for the next three weeks, losing to Wellington 13 to Og the following to E1 Dorado 20 to 7 and the next to East, 33 to 6. Fullback Chuck Jackson received a broken arm in the Wellington game, and was out for the rest of the season. The Railers rebounded to hand the Plain- view Gremlins a 35 to 0 defeat, but lost to Hutch 14 to 7, and to the Valley winning Ark City eleven 53 to 0. The final week of the season was highlighted by a 12 to 0 win over Winfield to close the season.

Coached by Cliff Yarnell and Walt Willis the Newton High baseball team undertook a ten game schedule. Approximately thirty boys turned out for the squad, with seniors making up most of the first nine. The only returning lettermen were Jim Raffety and Raymond Arellano. Much of the team was composed of boys who had played the previous summer on the American Legion team which placed second be- hind Wichita in the District Tourney, and won the McPherson Invitational. The season's opponents included West, North, East, Wellington, Winfield, El Dorado, plus Regional Tourney foes.

Back from last year to carry on were lettermen Alfonso Perez, Henry Wiebe, and Louis Sandoval. It will be remembered that in 1953 the Rail- ers placed sixth at the Sterling Relays, and fourth at the Wichita Invitational. They also sported a top 880 relay team. The cindermen opened the 1954 track sched- ule with a loss to Emporia in a dual affair. The following week they traveled to the first big meet of the year, the Sterling Relays, and wound up in a tie for second place with McPherson. The squad also entered the Kansas University Relays, the Hutchinson Invitational, and the Regional and State Meets. The season was highlighted by the superb running of Henry Wiebe, and the work of the medley and 880 yard relay teams. The squad as a whole was balanced in front line material but lacked depth. Under the direction of head coach Curtis Fischer, and assistant coaches Don Hoffman and Ira Barkman, were the following senior boys: Alfonso Perez, Louis Sandoval, Jim Suderman, Randal Pierce and Victor Ewy. The rest of the squad was composed of underclassmen who will return next year.

Page Forty-Seven Page Forty-Eight Highlights and afzewell At long last, our dreams have come true. As we walk across the mile long stage and reach for our diploma, the million memories are recalled. The Senior Play, and the cast party afterwards at Sod Suderman's began the year's events of fun. Even though the football season wasn't tops in history, it was tops to all the stars who gave their last action at the Winfield stadium win- ning a 14-7 victory. Basketball season was highlighted with our heroes bringing home the Dodge City Invitational Tournament Trophy, winning our home reg- ionals from El Dorado and moving onward to State tournament. Even though we were "ousted" by Topeka the first game, many seniors finished their stay in Manhattan, loving every minute of it. Our senior beaus were well taken care of during WPA Week with a dance opening the festive interlude. The Annual Senior Skating Party was rated with an A Plus for fun as everyone stumbled around together. As this week drew to a close, our junior friends entertained us with a comedy play. Our hand is almost touching the diploma now-but still memories rush into mind. The junior-senior events were tops as usual with seniors victors once again boosting our pride just a little more. As May 27 came creeping up on us, the gala spring events flew past one by one . . . the Jr.-Sr. reception, the speech banquet, the senior banquet, and last but far from least, we danced to heavenly music at the prom till our feet could move no more. We're grasping the priceless piece of paper now. Walking on across the stage, our eyes are misty as we say farewell to a wonderful stepping stone in life. We see the new horizons and know the time has come to be on our way once more. With the diploma in hand we know our dreams have at last come true. J' ,, . ..
