The ,Stajf wish to ex-
press their 'indebted-
ness to Ruth Gcwitt and
Emma Tomlinson for
designs and headings.
Julius Caesar came one day,
A visit on this earth to payg
Rapid was his swift descent
Until his snow-white robe was rent,
And torn the halo Virgil lent,
Upon a big dirigible.
With his classic nose smashed badly,
And his arms careening madly,
Downward still he took his flight,
Little thinking he would light
Wroiig side up instead of right,
On a mighty Hupmobile.
Soon the driver started speeding,
Spurted onward, quickly leaving
Poor J. Caesar, by one bounce,
By one great uplifting jounce,
With his robe spread like a flounce,
'Neath a noisy motorcycle,
Caesar's soul to heaven fled
And to the gathered shades he said,
'Like a battle, like a riot,
Never resting, never quiet,
Earth has changed, you'd never know ity
They may use ponies, but they sure don't
Mary Helen Shirer.
A brilliant student you surely
Of the Senior class you're the
We'1'e proud of you because
E plusses are against the laws.
QHOW do you do, Miss Jose-
eHow do you do today?
Sing us a song of the days

Before we go away.
-A tall and silent youth is he,
'Tis hard to say just what helll
But he's an "Imp", a declara-

In this dainty maid we see
NAS Winsome a lass as e'er can
'So gay and blithesome in all
'Oh yes, Ruth, we're strong for
'Herels one who shines in Do-
Her pastry is Haky and lightg
She knows just how to use
'To make things come out just
A quiet, modest little lass.
McDonald is hem- nameg
Would we could say of all the
She always is the Same,
A laughing, snappy, Winsome
.lolliest girl in the Senior class,
A rlonihination of traits like
Makes her a favorite of the
A. .. Efs,
Glen Yun Dorp.
Glen is our great football star,
And manager of plajvsg
Known in High School near
As biggest G. U. of Senior
She came to us so very late
We don't know much about her,
But our regard for her is great,
We couldnlt do Without her.
A jolly, witty, Winsome maid
Whose smile will never die or
Many will miss this happy face
For in T. H. S. shes won a
Here is a girl named Mattie
Whose heart We fear is cut in
For she with this so oft comes
"l-low far I am from old St.
Tal1 and slender, with eyes of
A poet she'd inspire,
Her temperament is even, too,
This girl we all admire.
He's with us in body, and spirit
But almost unconsciously mem-
ory Will lapse
Back to a time so pleasant and
When Q. U. I. Z. girls abound-
ed an a Grace was here.
Frances plays and Frances sings
And Frances gets the ads,
The old hall with her laughter
Shes a favorite of the lads.
Her eyes are always sparkling
Her face is fair to see,
der figure it is tall and slight,
A bonny lass is she.
Oh Edith, just what shall We
To only you yourself portray?
So quiet, earnest, and sincere,
tYou'll surely have a bright ca.-
Her wavy nut-brown curls
Are the envy of the girls:
She also sings so very Well
We can,t neglect that fact to.
Albin is an athlete true,
For he is on the teams
Of basketball and football, too,
How talented he seems!
A jolly girl is Lora Wfhit.,
Fun loving to the bone,
When she is asked to help a. bit
You never hear her groan.
A modest girl, not very shy,
And pretty, too, I sayg
She likes to know the reason,
Things are a certain v'ay.
May the footlights be your goal,
For an actress you surely areg
To see you, follfs'-will st-ay' up
The Jan. eleven star.
Emma indeed is a sweet little
Ready to do her part,
Athletic girl of the Senior class
And very fond of "Art".
He as an actor has Won fame
With Bill and Maggie as a
To tell of him We try in vain,
But We prefer him as just
A tiny girl is Nina R.,
Her singing brings us joy:
Some day she'll be an opera.
She's cunning as a boy.
When Corinna goes a-Maying,
She never takes the train,
That means so much delaying-
She'd rather walk, with Blaine.
An editor, an actress,
Combined most happily,
Poet, songster, language shark,
Our own fair Dorothy.
Our Ellen's smiles We never
For once when she was young
Tie gods all smiled on her, and
Is still a-smiling back.
Hugh is a boy with not much to
His actions are always so mild,
But if you would know his 'mob-
by, I say,
Just thing of a dainty Fair-
Au elocutionist now we see,
Ot great renown she'1l some-
So impulsive in every way,
She brings new pleasure to each
Hazel liked her poem, notg
Hazel said it was all "rot"g
HaZ91'begged us Write another,
We said we would, some way or
A lovely girl is Marguerite,
And in the laboratories
She makes you laugh, 'this gill
By telling such funny stories.
O a dainty maiden is Miss Maiv
She's been a blonde ever sim
she was born,
And she always loks so neat
From her Coiffure to her feat
One could not imagine her
VVe're mighty proud of big .lo
tHe isn't big now, but he'll
He's a shofei' who shofs
Not a loafei- who loafs,
And he's quiet, not given to
In H. S. she has succeeded
And this motto IGRVSS to you:
All ease and sunshine is not
Just a "Ray" of it will do.
Marguerite is a tiny lass,
But she's as neat as waxg
She makes up in the latter class
For what in size she lacks.
May we for brevity call her Bert
This girl who sings so well,
We know a lad who calls her
His initians-M. F. L.
lim-uce is big, and Bruce is tall
And Bruce hasilaxen hair,
And when"there'is atea or ball
ljnuce will su1'e be there.
Fran ces XVard.
Oh how we do like to roam
Out to her fair Shorey home,
lflow hospitable and kind,
l-lei' equal 'tis hard to find.
Ivan's love has gone from us,
He goes with us no rnoreg
The reason for this change of

She's such a silent little lass
She's scarcely known to our
But shke's a favorite anyway,

Oh that we might go so far
Of each your champion arts to
Last president of A. V. E.'s,
How difficult your task!
To let them do just what thley
.And to give them all they ask.
Ira B arrett.
In the Forensic club a leader,
An actor, too, you seeg
Of history, a reader,
And a star in botany.
Some think she is not jolly,
Just at tirst sight, you know,
But when they know her better
They find her far from slow.
. Mildred Jones.
Always giggling, gay and glad,
Never doleful, never sad,
In her, true school spirit we see
For a typical High School girl
So refined and dignified,
So very kind and true,
All known virtues are allied
And brought forth in you.
During the lapse of High School
She has shown various traits
Our admiration she compels
And in neatness she excels.
O Leonard is a busy man,
Chief editor of The World:
He does the very best he can
With writings, at hirn hurled.
A musician excelling in her art,
Toward success she has a start,
A very ambitious gir1 is she
For Dean in a college she Would.
One who excels in the manual
And a charming hostess is she,
fu the good-student class she
has a part,
This'gir1.by the name of Mayre,
'She is very neat and trim,
-Also quiet, but never prim,
She's good in English, that we
For she sits with us on the very
If you continue at the rate
You've begun in oratory,
Your foes you'l1 conquer in de-
-And crown yourself with glory.
Clifford, I can hardly tell,
What things you best can do,
You always get your English
And likewise Physics II. '
In Physics does she shine
'Or anything along that line,
But on those things We cannot
For in history she does excel.
Now in the days before the class of Janeleven had
gained the name Senior,-which rreans all-conquering in
war,-they went by the name of Subsoph, or the wise ones.
And they thought it fitting that they gather themselves
together and hold a partie.
So they selected wise men and maidens from their num-
ber who were to make all ready. And as it was ordered,
even so it was performed.
But it came to pass that divers men of the Sophs, and
of the Freshmen, whose diet is of milk and Who are mighty
men, encamped without the wall, and they were as mul-
titudinous as the tears of a flunker.
And as the Subsophs went unto the meeting two by two,
as was decreed, the men of war were upon them and did
smite them hip and thigh.
And did did tear them apart, one from the other.
And the maidens were sore afraid and did cry out
lustily. And the foe inclined his ear unto their cries.
And he was merciful and led them to the postern gate
where their friends received them and administered unto
them cod-liver oil and grape-juice and set before them
viands and instruments wherewith to eat thereof.
And with much turmoil they did prepare prunes, and
grubers, and cider of ancient vintage, and the juicy fruit of
the pickle tree. c
And they did ransom the men of their tribe and there
was great rejoicing throughout the house.
But the savory viands did but whet the appetite of the
besiegers and they did seek for more fromllthe same place.
And they did repair to a certain side door whereof they
But the chief of the Janelevens had introduced a species
of energy known as E-lec-trieity.
Now in all the land there was no energy equal to E-lec-
tricity-neither in the fall campaign nor in the spring
And its grip is as the grip of a pedigreed pup.
Wherefore, I say unto you, that as the chief of the
enemy would fain open the -door by stealth, he was seized
of a relentless seizure, even that of E-lec-tricity.
And he was sore distressed and he called loudly unto
his friends and unto his enemies.
And those within did joyously acclaim, and they re-
leased 'the leader of the foe, and his friends did silently
bear him away. V
And within the house all was glad with feasting, even
till the first cock-crow.
And it was so.

Smallest Number, if Navy Blue,
' The history of the boys' organization of the Class of
Jan. '11 began in the Sophomore term, wherfiearly in the
term a number of the boys of the class got together and
decided that in order to take their part in the social life
of the class, they had best organize. They elected Ivan Dib-
ble, first president, and called themselves the V. A. G. S.
This was changed to G. U. N. S. a few months later be-
cause of the similarity between V. A. G. S. and J. A. G. S.
The organization was very loose-andllittle was accomplished,
only one party being given. In the next term. under Paul
Nowers, the same conditions held! Many affairs were
planned but none were carried outi Such was the condition
of affairs that the following meaning for our letters was
G-enerous to a fault? Well, I guess not!
U-nenviable reputation they have got!
N-ever failing to attend our parties we'l1 agree,
S-eldom thinking anythingfs due the A. V. E.
However, just before the end of the term, a very success-
ful party was enjoyed out in Westlawn, where the large
crowd was entertained by quite an original serenade.
The Junior term, with Ira Barrett presiding, was un-
marked by any great increase in enthusiasm. The same old
guard continued to uphold the colors. Early in the term
a steak-roast was held on the Shunganunga., near Wash-
burn, for the A. V. Efs. A soaking rain came up and
everyone was drenchedg but Clyde Atwood, offering his
house, all went thither, where an enjoyable time was had,
after everyone got dried out. Near the end of the term a
first class card party was given at the home of Leo Nold,
which was largely made possible by an infusion of new
blood which was tb make the Senior year one to be re-
At the beginning of the Sub-Senior term a meeting was
held at which 'following ofncers were elected: Ralph
Keller, President, Morris La Croix, Vice President, Leo
Nold, Secretary and Treasurer, and Leonard Warren, Ser-
geant-at-Armsl Plans were made immediately for re-
organization. Due to the ability and work of Morris La
Croix the orggnization was at last put on a sound basis. The
members were brought closer together, and the society was
made strbligfalld iirm. A constitution was framed and adopt-
ed, which the society had never had before. The
festiyities 'of the term were opened by a very original party
at Glen Van Dorp's, where the G. U. N. S. showed that they
belonged in the first rank as entertainers. The G. U. N. S.
had a hand in most things of importance during the term
and showed that they had begun to Wake up. A very unique
pin was chosen by the boys, consisting of a small, solid gold,
dull 'finish revolveron a tie pin, without lettering. This is
by far the mostiattractive pin in the school, among the 'boys'
organizations, being excelled only by that of the A. V. E.'s,
our companion society. The term was concluded by a very
enjoyable card party at the home of Morris La Croix, where
our reputation for quality was fully sustained.
Due to various reasons, which it is thought best not to
give here, the G.iU. N. S. in this, their last term, have done
little along social lines. A line party was given at the Ma-
jestic, followed by an oyster supper, which was the last
function given by the society before graduation. But along
many other lines they have worked to the advantage of the
school. Though smaller in numbers, perhaps, than any other
society in school, the G. U. N. S. have done more towards
the display of their colors than any-one else. One fine morn-
ing the school arrived to find a seven foot canvas banner
hanging from the new telephone cable, forty feet above the
ground, proclaiming to the whole school that the G. U. N. S.
were alive. On another morning the assembly was startled
by means of an ingenious contrivance which Hipped a G. U.
N. banner down over the face of the platform clock. Several
other escapades planned and successfully executed at the
unholy hour of twelve o'clock, Sunday nights, have led the
boys to believe that their name is not in vain.
With this account the Great Unrivalled Night Schemers
bid you adieu, feeling that they will not be forgotten.
Three years ago the orchestra was organized under the
leadership of Miss Odes Samuels. It flourished under her
direction but began to lose interest when she graduated
at the end of the term. Lee Samuels reorganized it and it
is now one of-the strongest of High School enterprises. One
difficulty which the orchestra has had to surmount was the
lack of funds.
The music played was that which belonged to the indi-
vidual players. Now the literary societies have started a
music fund with the proceeds of the "farces". In this way
a permanent repertoire is attained. -
The orchestra has played at all the social events of the
Much of the enthusiasmof the football seasongwas due
to the "orchestral band" which helped the rooters.
Several of the players will graduate in June, but they
are breaking in new players and doing all in their power
to make this best of High School organizations a perma-

We were no longer infants in the High School world and
strangers to each other when we met one September after-
izoon in 1908 to organize. For three terms we had been
"learning the ropes", and weaving the first threads of many
friendships, our class wa salready organized and active, and
we felt that when we, the girls, could claim an organization
and name of our own, we would have taken the last step
in becoming citizens of our busy T. H. S.
And so, very early in our Sophomore term, we met at
Winifred Helbert's to adopt our laws. We had seen other
girls of other classes and had watched their fun and friend-
ships, all our short career. So now we sought eagerly for a
name which would mean all of that to us and by which
We might be known and remembered, perchance, when we
had gone on the long journey. So we went out from our
first meeting, rejoicing in the title of A. V. E. and with
almost every girl in the clas ssigned as a charter member.
With the energy and enthusiasm that has ever char-
acterized them, the A. V. E.'s took up their burdens and
Well do I remember the first party given for the G. U.
N. S., the planning and laboring that it might be worthy
of our mettle. Its success was symbolic of the success that
has waited upon our efforts always.
Foremost in our minds, however, stands our reception
for the Q. U. I. Z. girls, all green and gold and white, our
very festive hop given entirely in our own honor, two,
spreads for the class of Jan. '11, one in the "studio" and one
out on "The Drive,', where We were stiffly and staidly en-
tertained at crack-the-whip and blind man's buff, and a.
party tendered to our football squad and their much-loved
I dare not go farther into our parties, our plays, and our
"stunts", for that which I can not do justice to I will not
touch at all. Instead, I will let speak for us the A. V. E..
reputation-generosity, originality, and "something doing".
Every month we have met together and laughed and'
talked and eaten, commonplace enough but pleasant, so,
pleasant that they have left warm, happy, noisy memories,
which will stand out from our High School page always.
Our gold and' which has waved its sunny way through
High school, our little golden lamps have blazed on our
waists, proclaiming our proud names to the world. Here's

LST! Q. ,T
No athletics in T. H. Sl! Impossible! Such was the
burden of the cry often heard in the halls early in the
term. But thus it seemed to many, who thought the stu-
dent body had no school spirit. Here was the situation:
VVe had a great deal of very promising material out, in
fact enough to make two good teams. Everything pointed
to a first-class football team. But there was a danger in a
very important quarter. The students seemed to take no
interest. A pro-position had been made by the manage-
ment that read as follows: Either six hundred season
tickets for the athletic year must be sold at wha was a
ridiculously low price or here would be no athletics of any
cort. At first things looked dubious, but due to the exhi-
bitions of football given by the team during the first three
games, the enthusiasm aroused, and the kindness of some
of the business men, the whole block of tickets was sold.
From that time the school spirit grew and waxed strong.
The team, under Captain Heil, rapidly developed and
fulfilled all its early promise. It won every game, the
first part of the season. A great deal of credit is due Harry
Heinzman, the coach, without whom we 'could not have had
our remarkable success. The weather during the entire
season was remarkable, no game being delayed. Greater
enthusiasm, and more rooting was done, than had been
the case for years. After the Emporia game the rooters
paraded the avenue. A band was gotten up for the St. Joe
game and that night a night-shirt parade was held, the
first in Topeka for several years.
When we played at Lawrence, the rooters had a special
train of seven coaches. A band, and several very large
banners were taken down by the rooters, who paraded the
streets of Lawrence and effectually woke the sleepy place
up. One of the most remarkable of things, by the Lawrence
papers, as showing our school spirit, was the parade of the
Topeka girls around the football field. The game and the
championship were lost by a piece of hard luck. Lawrence
failed to cross our goal line but won the game on two
safeties. In a great many ways this has been a remark-
able football year for T. H. S., and one that will be re-
membered. Jan. '11 had several men on the squad: Van
Dorp, the great full-back, Nichols and Johnson, both of
whom did good work, and Carlson, who did star work on
the second team. Other players among the best were Heil,
McFarland, Van Houten, Slaughter, Chamberlain, Olander,
Martin, De Armond, Villipigue and Billings. At the end
of the season fifteen of the squad were presented with "T"
sweaters. "Cot" Heil was chosen captain again for the
1911 season. He will have to break in a practically new
Bright hopes are entertained for the basketball season.
Capt. Woodford, a star, has had men enough for four
teams on the floor most of the time. A team which has a
strong chance for the state championship has been devel-
oped. The stars are Wooford, Bolton, Johnson, Jan. '11,
and Anderson and Washburn. Carlson, Jan. '11, is also a
good player. The team has been chosen as one of the Kan-
sas City League, and has ably upheld its right to such a.
place. The season will be hard, but so far no game has
Last year no track team was organized, but two men
were sent to the state meet. They won gold medals for
the half mile. With this result, which was more than had
been accomplished for a long time, we ought to be spurred
on to work for a first class team next spring.
In the splendid results and enthusiasm evoked this year,
this class feels it has borne a part, and wishes most truly
that it may continue and increase year by year.

it was the last High
School play to be given by Sub-Seniors.
Under the management of Glen Van Dorp, and with
Miss Irene Welhans as coach, "The College Ball" was suc-
cessfully presented. The leading parts were taken by
Kathleen Middaugh, Dorothy Paikhurst, and Harry Howes.
Other parts were played by Ellen Irwin, Louise Culver,
Blaine Johnson, Leonard Warren, Hugh Nichols, Leo Nold,
and Glen Van Dorp. The cast was well trained and dis-
played much talent in handling the parts.
After much reading of plays, a Senior play, "The Toast-
master," was chosen. This was a college play, heavier than
the first one and of a more humorous nature. As before,
Gien Van Dorp managed the play and Kathleen Middaugh
had the leading feminine role. She played very well, even
better than in the preceding play. Blaine Johnson, as the
leading min, was greatg particularly in the part of Maggie,
a servant girl, did he show his talent. Ellen Irwin had
perhaps the most difficult part in the play, that of a deaf
and dumb Woman. Her acting Was excellent, proving the
truth of the old saying, that actions speak louder than
Words. Nina Roudebush, as Buzzer, the small bov, made
the hit of the evening. Ira Barrett, as one who loves and
hopes, caused much fun and was Well received. Glen Van
Dorp Was good in the title role. Leonard Warren, Hugh
Nichols, Joe Hull and George Tulien all handled their parts
Well. A banquet scene in the third act, arranged especially
by Miss Welshans, was rather unusual and gave a pretty
and effective ending for the play.

A commendable school spirit has been in evidence almost
everywhere in the Topeka High School during the present
year. In general school work, in football, in basketball, and
in social affairs, it has furnished encouragement to both
Faculty and students. If this spirit has been wanting at
all, and we are afraid it has, it has been in our literary so-
cieties. Except the officers and the members who take part
in the programs and farces, very few of the students have
attended the meetings of either society, and there has been
little interest taken in them. This is a. boost and not a
knock. It is written in the hope that in the future these
societies, which should accomplish so much for the students,
will be made interesting and will be well attended. While
the Seniors may be to blame for not setting a good example
in pushing the work of these societies, it must be remem-
bered that their work is strenuous and that it is the lower
classmen who should put life and energy into the literary
work of the schools.
This year, for the first time in several seasons, T. H. S.
has had a debating society. The membership has been about
fifteen. Much valuable work in preparing for the big de-
bates with Emporia and Wichita has been done. It is hoped
that more interest will be taken. The officers are: Ira
Barrett, President 5 Frank Hayes, Vice President g Leigh'
Garver, Secretary, and Kelsey Gardner, Sergeant-at-Arms.
Enough enthusiasm was evoked to cause an inter-class de-
Unlike the Athenaeum Society, the Philos have been Well
attended. This may be due to the fact that they have Won
in declamation contests and in the inter-society debates.
During the past year they have had seven regular meetings,
one in assembly, and have given their farce. The pro-
grams for the most part have been music, essays and read-
ings, tho' a few novelties, such as chalk-talks, have found
their way into the productions. There is, however, a pros-
pect of great improvement next year. Several small farces
will be given and refreshments will be served as some of

Could devour a loale of hay,
And ri: times if is forty-six,
What would three feathers weigh?
Now we learned all this more,
And it never seemed a boreg
For we had our friends, Miss Bishop
And Miss Plummer to show us how.
Tune-"Call Mc Up Some Rainy Afternoon."
Now we're going to sing a little lay
For the teachers who have gone away-
Bauer, Estberg and Bevier,
Morgan, Bechtel, Crawford, Everingham and Gernon,
Now they left for ieasons quite their own,
And they all had good ones, that is known,
f'MendeZssohn's W edcling March",
And they have gone, gone, and left us lonely,
But we know they are quite contented.
Tune-"Newt to I70?H'jW0ffZI1l', Wlzo do yon Love ?"
Next to Virginia, whom do you love?
She- is as gentle as any dove.
With her to teach, we know just how to cook
Things that look just like the loook.
What could we do without dear Miss Meade,
We'll try to follow where she may leadg
Next to Domestic cookery-oh,
Tell me now, what do you love?
Tune-"Every Little Movement."
Every time we see Miss Nash we love her more and
Even though her lessons make us feel so sad and soreg
If we should e'er forget a date
Unmerciful would be our fate,
We fear your wonder would be great, dear Lou.
Tune-"Any Little Girl WlLo's ci Nice Little Girl, Is the
Right Little Girl for Me."
Thereis a little girl who asks, "Why are you late?"
When you come in at eight-seventeen.
She is neat and prim, but we'd hardly say sedate.
Bertha Senft is the one we mean.
Oh we know that we-'ve s-aid things
That weren't exactly true,
But you were awf'ly good not to question when you
And we-'re all much obliged to you.
Tune-"I'll Make a Ring Around Rosie."
Now, Miss McKnight, that we're Seniors,
Each one of us has to gog
Whether you teachers will miss us,
None of us exactly know.
But we'll miss dear old High School,
And all you teachers as well,
But there's no use of repining,
So we say simply "farewell".
Tune-"Meet Me in Rose Time, Rosie."
How Mr. Dickie Dickson
And Mr. Coppedge, too,
Taught us all those experiments
Which were so hard to do.
They taught us of all liquids,
Acids and solids, toog
Then we were grieving,
But now on leaving
We would say thanks to you.
Tune-"The M esmerizing Mendelssohn Tune."
Mr. Greider, you have always been so kind and true,
When in Physics, 1ab'ratory, and class room, too,
Or in German's hard translations,
You gave us those explanations,
When we came into your class room we were sure to see
That tantalizin', hypnotizin', mesmerizin' physiognomy.
Tome-"Casey J ones."
In T. H. S. are teachers by the score
And two that teach about amoeba and spore.
Miss McElroy stands mighty high
But she isn't any better than Miss Eva Schley.
They're the ones
Who live in the basement.
They're the ones
Who have the funny bugs.
They're the ones
Who measure your affections
, By the times you bring them polywogs and frogs.
'Tune-"Ylcldlc on Yom' Fiddle Play Some Rctg-time."
Mr. McDonald, you have taught us conjugations,
We're sorry, for the times when
We hadn't our translations.
Mr. Cowdrick, we are thankful
For the knowledge we've been stowing
Bout Pericles, Miltiades,
And the wondrous galleys 'neath the seas,
And we're oh, so very sorry to be going.
Tune-"Pm On .My Way To Reno."
There is a fair young lady,
Her name's T. Helen Capps,
She's not a High School teacher,
But you've heard of her perhaps.
Important is her life and great
She seals big letters while you wait,
Shouting, f'Take this to Lowman school now.'
T1,me-"Cuddle Up Cl Little Closer, Lovey Mine."
Mr. Hoehner, Mr. Kaho, Winter, too,
Often you have made us work with prints of blue
Taught us how to make a plate rack,
Taught us all to put our tools back,
Not to smash our finger-nails black,
Thanks to you.
Tune-"IW be wiflz You, Honey, When It's Honeysuckle
Freshmen, don't be mourning, for you've only started
You could stay in school, somehow.
Then you will remember
All the good times you've had here,
And like us, you'll be grieving
Because you are leaving
Your old T. H. S. so dear.
He's got great blue dancing eyes,
He's got a great big heart that size,
He knows all about this and that,
And he's nice, big and jolly and ever so fat, .
He's our one big shining light,
And we think that Hickey is all right.
Come, come, come as fast as you can
And let us introduce you to that Hickey man.
Tune-"Youll be Sorry Just Too Late."
Here is to the janitors
Who sweep all the stairs and floors,
Armed with brooms and brushes big,
They just have to dig and digg
So we sing this song to you,
That you'll know how much they do,
And to help the janitors-
Donlt get shavings on the floor.
Tune-"Just Some One."
One song for dear Miss Ewing,
One song before we partg
Sweet thoughts are treasured for you
Deep down in every heart.
Never a teacher dearer,
Never one more belovedg
We fear we've grieved you,
We hate to leave you,
Tnne-"Yon are the Ideal of My Dreams."
, Miss Ansel, Miss Boughton, Miss Barkley,
You've shown us the way we should read
r Dickens and Poe,
Shakespeare and Thoreau,
And We Won't let our brains go to seed.
We'l1 try to remember your warnings,
And not say "there ain't" or "they is".
We won't say "twigs" for "feet",
We Won't say 'et" for "eat",
You have helped us in word, thought and deed. '
Tnne-"Kelly's Gone to Kingdom Come."
Here's to our Miss Patterson, Patterson, Patterson,
She can scare the teachers some,
y O-H, My!
She has taught us Latin well, German Well, grammar
And we are sorry to say "Vale" and "Aufweider
Tune-"Call Me Up Some Rainy Afternoon."
There is one Whom every one loves Well,
That she's Miss Graham we are proud to tell,
She has clever things to say,
We can listen night and-always to Miss
She has taught us Algebra and Trig.,
Geometry-horrid things that make you dig-
But we like what we hate
When Miss Graham is our fate,
She is best,
Leads the rest,

Are the three keynotes to all things in life.
These three words were the foundation of our
advertisement in your Annual issued January,
1910. We believe that we can still feature elabor-
ately on their importance in our paths of life and
You have a shining example in the success of
our business here in Topeka, and in such other
cities as Kansas City, St. Joseph and Emporia as
to what adhearing strictly to the principles con-
nected with these three words has accomplished.
It will accomplish the same thing for you or any-
one who will note their importance. Any young
man who takes up a business career in this life
will stumble over them every day of his existence.
It means 'everything to him who realizes their
importance. We have found that it meant every-
thing to us in our every day business dealings,
as we believe there is not a concern in this western
country that has a better F6 putation than we have.
You know it. We have demonstrations daily of
this fact. Our patronage has grown to ten times
its original size in twenty-three years. We delight
in enlightening buyers as to the quality of our
merchandise whether buyer or looker. Courtesy
enters strongly into our business.
