T R me we -13 , G' 'F h x.:- 9' ' .47 E I J 9 Knowledge and Light T The Motto of class '27 "Knowledge and Light" is a fitting theme for this Q edition of the "Shamrock." At this season of the year when many memories rush upon us it is well to reflect upon this theme. Lights given us by T. C. H. S. flow into the mind and produce clear thinking: they assist us to approach serious truth with courage and animation. They arouse healthy enthusiasm. All of these results are ideal conditions for the acquisition of knowledge. True, the amount of knowledge acquired depends upon ones self. Were the study hours well spent or squandered? The question of natural talent may enter but it is not the most important. To discover the verdict on a stu- dent's success ask those who saw him in action: teachers who heard the recita- tion or read the examination papers. What would be their reply, ready en- thusiastic praise or only a compassionate smile? Whatever may be the decision in that regard ever cherish the motto "Knowledge and Light." May it ever guide us to higher and nobler efforts: teach us to overcome all difficulties, until finally we arrive at the feet of the Master for Whom the sacrifices are made to make T. C. I-I. S. possible. LIGHT When the great king of night subdues the sun And sends its blood-strained rays across the sky, Another time of beauty has begun With the appearing lights of heau'n on high. 'Tis then my mind will dream of days of yore, And Alma M ater's light will point the way How to reverse the sands of time once more, And take me to my golden yesterday. Then once again the bright thoughts of my youth Before my eyes will shine: and I shall hear The lessons o'er of knowledge and of truth Taught to me in the spring tide of life's year.

Behold Qui' uniors Louise Annen is always quiet, She never gets into a rl0t. Ethel Birmingham, lively and gay, A teacher of athletics will be someday. Kathleen Connaughton, the best of - friends, . On all, her sunny smile she bends. Florence Couch, a merry lass, Would be the pride of any class. Helen Crawford, a Cicero shark, Can read Latin in the dark. Beatrice DeC1armo's "I don't know" Is always said in a voice quite low. Every one who knows Helen DeKre1l, Declare they like her very well. Although Anna Degginger is tall, She doesn't think "she knows it all." Harold Devlin, it is said, Likes very much to stay in bed. The best of typists, Esther Dooley, A private secretary she will be, surely. Lois Ellenbecker, whom we all appre- ciate, In '28 is a brand new class mate. The Treasurer is Jeanne Finn, She never turns a shortage in. Of Catherine Fleish's soft little laugh If we told all about it we'd have a paragraph. There is a Junior, Frances Flynn, Who owns a pretty little grin. Can anyone deny that Robert Cior- man, Will make an ideal husband for some woman. Of Francis Hoy, we must say, He is glad that in each week there is a Friday. Page Twenty-six Faye Huber, from out of town, Starts to school while the sun's down. There is a new Junior, Paul Hille- brand, And he plays a cornet in the school band. Lassell Landwehr, of secretaries, the best In the field of politics will reach the crest. The Vice President, Frances Lawlor Still would be loved even if she were taller. Valentine Leinacker, brilliant and wise, In American History takes the prize. Every one envys the curls Of Rose Letuks, the fairest of girls. Amelia Letuks, the algebra wonder In her work there is scarcely an error. Catherine Masching, petit and proud, ls the life of every crowd. Diam-a lVlcKiernan, the President, In spirit is very independent. Irene McEntyre, a studious child, Has a manner which is mild. To Lucille Patterson the honor must go, For being the quietest in her row. The best of Juniors is Carolyn Pur- nell, Who seldom misses the ringing of the bell. Margaret Reel, no one can bar Or keep from becoming an opera Star. John Roach, the Junior's joy, Is the "cutest little boy." Catherine Smith. small and sweet, May she and worry never meet.

Class Colors: Silver and Cerise Class Flower: Orchid The Carnival On October the twenty-eighth Assumption Hall was decked in hallowe'en attire yellow and black draperies, Witches, cider, the electric bridge, the lunch, the candy counter: all contributed to the enjoyment. Yes, even Mr. and Mrs. Tom Thumb were there to assist in making the event enjoyable. But all of these were little compared with the excitement that hovered around the booth where the Popularity Contest was conducted. We wondered who the victors were. Surely not the Sophomores, for they seem depressed: but great was the applause when they were announced the winners. Congratulations Sopho- mores-you are splendid workers!

The topic, Resolved, "That a Federal Department of Edu- cation be established with a Secretary in the President's Cabinet" is one of vital interest. The spicy arguments and logical conclusions of the debaters held the attention of the audience. The affirmative was upheld by Louise Bir- mingham, Timothy Degginger and Paul Spurlock while Marie Murphy, Walter Gibbons and Clarence Malone gave convincing discussions fo the evils of the proposed law. The presence of so large an audience, their keen attention and generous applause are alike an evidence of the deep interest taken in this branch of high school activity. The judges, Miss F. Ulamperl, Miss M. McGuire and Miss T. Barnes, decided that the negatives put forth the strongest arguments and awarded the gold medal to Clarence Malone.

The Qrchestra ln the year during which it has been organized the orchestra has steadily approached nearer to real perfection. and this year it has almost reached the zenith. Each player shows talent, and is putting forth his best efforts to make the music at T. C. H. S. rank with the best in our State. The members of this organization appreciating the advantages they receive from the study of music. devote much time to improving their talentsf Wlien one considers the high place given music by the great men of all ages, he realizes that some knowledge of this art is essential to an education. Music exerts a very ennobling influence upon the mind and character and should be studied not only as means of pleas- ure and amusement, but because of its purifying and educating power. This art is closely connected with the inner life of man. A person who "is not moved with concord of sweet sounds' is "Fit for treason, stratagems and spoils: The motion of his spirit are dull as night. And his affections dark as Erebus Let no such man be trusted." Paige 'l'liil'ly-five -.- Q 1 , , 77. p ,5,,j,5,: a.4gX,sb4? H. . 'RX W 4 A . '?.

Lanham T. C. H. S. presented The Peasant Costume Revue. The audience enjoyed a delightful imaginary trip while Miss Lanham with the assistance of the pupils portrayed the typical life of the French, German, Dutch, Russian and Danish peasants. The entertain- ment was excellent and revealed in the delightful interpretation of talent hith- erto latent. It brought the audience close in touch with the humor, the pathos and the optimistic philosophy of life. Miss Lanham has a "charming way with her audience" and exhibited fine feeling and a vivid understanding of her works. She has appeared in four different European countries, in Canada and has given programs in thirty States. We are grateful for our intercourse with her for we learned to appreciate her unusual ability and pleasing personality. Her beautiful motto: "Give the world the best you have and the best will come back to you" is exemplified in all her work. Page Thirty-seven 2 ., I V , What The Topeka Daily Capital Says of Our Play HUNDREDS SEE COMEDY Assumption Hall Packed to See "Nothing But the Truth." An audience that packed the large hall of the Assumption church last night was highly entertained with a three-act comedy, "Nothing But the Truth," .presented by the Topeka Catholic High School. The hall was at- tractively and appropriately decorated for St. Patrick's day, with white and green streamers. The play, based on the actions of a young man, fClarence Malonej, who accepted a dare to tell the exact truth for twenty- four hours, kept the audience chuckling and at times threw it into an up- roar when he wouldn't even tell a "white lie" in a tight place. Each one in the cast handled his part nicely and demonstrated excellent training, the work of Miss Diama McKiernan and' Malone being especially good. The cast included: Miss McKernan, Louise Birmingham, John Murphy, Frances Strecker, Timothy Degginger, Walter Gibbons, Fern Huber, Mar- garet Shields, Rose Donnelly and Paul Spurlock.
