NVhen, as Sub-Sophoniores. our class was organized, we began our career in this school with the determination to come out on top. In order to take care of the overflow of enthusiasm we have created at different times, the boys and girls have organized separate societies, the L. I. N. X. and the L. O. X. Along with our fun we have gained a little knowledge. Standing out prominent among the social activities of the class during the Sub-Senior term was the reception given for the Seniors in the school gy1'nnasi1un, the first reception to be given at the school. i.

The present officers are: Byron Collins, president, Elinor Eckert, vice- presidentg Charles Curry, treasurer, and Bert Nash, secretary. The faculty advisers are Miss Lindsay and Miss Ingham. Two decidedly successful organizations are the S. H. A. R. P. S. and F. L. A. T. S. The president of the S. I-I.'A. R. P. S. is Ruth I-Iarbaugh, and that of the F. L. A. T. S., Chesley McCormick.

If vini and ginger are used as a criterion of class standing, the Sub- Juniors are headed toward an even more successful future than their past has been. Since organization the aim has been to be representative of not only the class but the school spirit.

They X lil I were the bestest organization in all High School, O Best Beloved, and there were no others like unto them. In the high and far-off times they were the ones who had the most interesting parties, best assembly programs, and so on and so forth. ln the year 1916, the officers of the class Were most awf'ly original CI'm not sure, O Best Beloved, but I think that if you look it up in the Encyclopedia you will find that it means different from everything, or in other words, 11ot like anything elsej. The most important of aforesaid leaders was a person by the name of Thomas Capps. Wlieii, he was not able to attend, the seat of office was taken by a person whom everyone knows as Philip Fable, The individual who had to get up and read reports of the aforesaid interesting meetings, O Best Beloved, Went by the name of Marian Squire. Then the person who put his life in danger by trying to collect moneys from us was called by the general public, Russell Zarker. And last, but not least, came Harold Smiley, who took us firmly by the ear and expelled us from the room if we became unruly. The girls' and boys' organizations went by the name of I-Iarts and Darts. Of course these also were the very bestest in High School.

Besides the president, Marjorie Ranb and Henry Eller were chosen to represent us in the student council. Our class colors are green and white. For our class advisers we chose llliss Fleming and Miss Shaver. Ever since we first entered high school We have looked forward to the time when we might act as an organized body and be represented in all student activities. That time is here, so prepare to witness great victories for the Green and Vlfhite. Having no desire to offend the noble Seniors who are leaving us, We do not claim to be the best class ever, but we do hope that when we leave, as they are now doing, we shall have gained something for ourselves and also shall have contributed to the glory of T.

Seniors give you a grandfatlierly smile and sing you 21. lullaby. In the first edition of the school paper you are pictured, as a gentleman said in assembly, as being so green that the cattle even stopped and looked. thinking you were something to eat. There is one consolation, fellow sufferers, when you become a Junior you may wear bright green whenever and wherever you please. XVhen you are an Ahnighty Senior you will think you can even rule the teachers. Freshmen, enjoy your youthful days, for being a. Senior implies you must be dignified, wear stiff collars, and be just so, but- 'iliittle Freshie, don't you cry, You'll be in the Annual by and by."

S., decreed that the inhabitants of said city should , JI be represented in the court of rulers, by an organization SEM called the Student Council. The members of the council should consist of the President and two other representatives from each of the six most important sections of said city, elected by the inhabitants of t.he several sections at the beginning of each term. Meetings should be held on the first and third Mondays of the month. Officers should be elected at the beginning of each new term, and all laws passed by the Council should be subject to the approval of King Stout. Questions of vital interest to the citizens of T. H. S.. such as the High School pin, bulletin boards, class programs in assembly, and route of travel from one building to the other, have been decided. Once and once only, have the laws of tl council inet opposition from the people. The residents of the Sub-Senior section utterly refused to be assisted in giving their semi-annual reception for the Seniors. The residents of the Junior section then refused to assist and even King Stout was helpless. This law has never been enforced. June ALOHA OE 1916 The Story Tellers' Club NEYV organization, the Story Tellers' Club, has been formed 1172-Ak-.lilgl for the girls of the High School. The club is under the per- sonal supervision of Miss Lulu McKee, one of the best kinder- ? hi garten teachers in the city, and Miss Boe, our Dramatic in- structor. Vile meet every Weclnesclay afternoon and have per- fectly lovely times, telling stories and playing childrens' games. NVe have visited several of the grade schools in the city, and have entertained them by tellingstories, thus putting the knowledge gained in the club to practical use. NVe also visited Miss McKee's kindergarten on the East Side where we saw many interesting' things. The officers of the club who were elected at the first of the term are: President, Verna Vliseg Vice President, Esther Thomas, Secretary, Blanch Botliamg Treasurer, Florence Fritton, Vtforld Reporter, Esther Lindell. 5 June ALOHA OE 1916 1 Claire Menninger Dorothy Bair Eldon Shoupe Howard Naylor The Classical lub fd Tj HE purpose of this organization has, is, and shall be, to pro- mote a greater interest in the study of Latin and to obtain 'M lic more knowledge of this subjectuthan is offered in 1hc class fr L+ 1 room. The club has been organized now for only two years and already the purpose has been realized to a great extent. The membership of the club is limited. Only students enrolled in second year Latin or higher may be members. These must have a pass- ing grade .in that subject and come up to the other regulations in the constitution before they may be admitted. The membership is over 100 and about 60 per cent of this number attend the meetings. This is probably as large an attendance as any other club in the school can boast, and it certainly shows an awakened interest in Latin. One very unique feature was thc edition again of the Latinus Papyrus. edited by the members of the club. Our officers for the past year have s 7 Fig' i'll l beenf President, Wm. C. Menningorg Vice President, Dorothy Bairg Sec- retary and Treasurer, Eldon Shoupg Business Manager, Howard Nayiloiw Advisers, Miss L. If. Ewing and Mrs. L. J. Embleton.

At none of our meetings was room 202 too small to seat all present. VVe fear that a good many students who are interested in Mathematics do not attend our meetings because they think they will have to go thru a great deal of red tape to do so. NVe take this opportunity to make things clear. There are no joining fees, no dues, no examination to pass, no red tape of any sort. Any one interested in Mathematics or curious as to what we do at our meetings, We not only Welcome, but urge to come and find out. A member of the XVashburu College Mathematics Club was present at one of our meetings and spoke very highly of the Club. She said, "I wish we could arouse as much enthusiasm and have as good au attendance as you have.'7 XVe see a bright future for the Mathematics Club. 1 i . June ALOHA OE 1916 Prof. Kaho Maym H. Parsons Elwin Charlesworth Lucille Elmore The Art Club il HE Art'Club is as yet very little known among High School people, but it gives promise of becoming one of the most active clubs of the School. It is composed of students who 5 'ffff WI' are interested in art and especially those who intend to con- tinue study of art after leaving High School. The aim of the club is to promote an interest in art among thc students of Topeka High School and to enable the members to obtain a higher conception of art. Wlith this thought in mind, the first meeting was called on March 15, 1916, and the following officers elected: President, Elwin Charlesworthg Vice President, Maym Parsons, Sec- retary, Lucille Elmore. At the second meeting drawings and sketches were handed in by the members and a committee was appointed to take the best specimens to Mr. Albert T. Reid, cartoonist for the HKansas Farmerj, to be .criticised by him. In this Way we learned the good and bad points of our work. Many more interesting meetings were held, and several prominent artists of the city gave us interesting talks, a.mong them Mr. Albert T. Reid, Mr. Robert Stone, and Mr. H. G. Parsons. At present there are about fifteen members of this club, but next year the club has promise to become one of the very best in the school. June ALOHA OE 1916 The Normal Training Class HE present Normal Training class of the Topeka High School is a very live and jolly group. During the term .ive have had a number of good times together. The first Jolhfication was at the home of Miss Elsie Carter. Here our teacher, Mr. AYllllE11TlS011, exhibited great ability as a riuiner, for in a race with our male representative he came out victorious. But, had the same fate awaited our teacher as did Tiot's wife, we fear that he would be a pillar of salt, for many times he turned to see how l1is opponent was progressing. The class is indeed fortunate in having such a capable and willing social committee, whose plan is to have some form of entertainment every two or three weeks. The officers are: Miss Elizabeth Schenk, Presidentg Miss Zelnia Tracy, Vice Presidentg Knnte Broady, Secretary and Treas- urerg Miss Lillian Fritchie, Sergeantfat-Arms5 Miss Ruth Gasche, Chair- man of the Social Connnitteeg Pansy Piercy, Nliorld Reporter. Among tlieinteresting and pleasant features of our class Work have been the excursions we have made to the various grade schools of the city, where we have had the opportunity to sec the methods used by different teachers in teaching certain subjects. This has not only been helpful in suggesting to us the manner of presenting certain studies to students but has made us acquainted to a greater degree with the present teaching force of the city and has inade us more familiar with the loca- tion and particular details of the different school buildings which accom- modate the school children of Topeka. T June ALOHA OE 1916 The Golfefs Club is NE form of athletics which the High School fails to recognize- . sl a sport that demands'more skill, experience, knowledge and Q, consistency of action than any other game of skill-is the . game of Golf. Last winter, while the High School golfers were housed in Tro1np's and XVaggoner's by winter's icy blast, and while the boys were recalling phenomenal shots-three hundred yard drives and thirty foot putts, one brilliant mind ,proposed that We form a Golfer's Club. The idea was hailed with approval, and plans for the Club were immediately drafted. Nvilbnr Cole was unanimously elected to the one and only office, that of treasurer, as he is blessed with an innate aptitude for col- lecting coin from young golfers. The charter members are: R. Adams C. Porter J. Bonebrake .T. Merriam W. Cole M. Dean A. Bonebrake D. Bowman VV. McClintock G. Rourke C. Kouns P. Young J. Porter J. Smith L. Tirrill This summer we expect to have the fastest foursome of trans-Missis sippi High School clubs, and we will probably be represented at a number of tournaments by our champions, Cole, Smith and Tirrill. The Chess and Checkers Club if HE Topeka High School Chess and Checkers Club is a very new organization that was started the first part of this term. It helps broaden and develop the 1T1111d.21S well as any organ- ization in this school. As this is our first term, we have not been able to do much yet, but We hope to be able to rival the T. H. S. Debating Team and other intellectual organizations in the near futu1'e. This organization should receive the unanimous support of all T. H. S. students interested in Chess and Checkers. YVe expect to carry on tournaments between different High Schools in Kansas and in adjoining states next term. The main organization in every large Eastern High School is a Chess club. Such should be the case in our school. June ALOHA OE 1916 The German lub 'if J NENV club which was orffanized this semester is the German .I ,N X . 5 J, V U ' . t T 'Q' Club. It was organized by Mrs. Terrill in her Second-Hour German Four class. The officers are: President. Raymond Longg Vice President. Florence NVolfeg Secretary-'l'rea,s urer, Faith Young. Membership to this elub is open to all students of the German department and all German students in the High School. The club was organized with the purpose of promoting the speaking of German among the High School German students, and also to give a better llllClC1'Sf2lllLlll1g' of German life and culture. The club meets every two weeks on Friday. The program committee, consisting of Matthew Kendall, ehairmang Ruth Nllard and Torrence Curry, out- lined many interesting' programs which have been given by the members during the semester.

June ALOHA OE 1916 Central Radio Club 1 11115 Central Radio Club. one of the most active organizations in the school, makes its first appearance in the Annual with this issue. The members have club rooms in the Central g m , Congregational Church in which they hold business meetings every week. An important feature of the club is its origin- ality. Among the best of its ideas is that of having illustrated lectures given each meeting with subjects pertaining to wireless telegraphy. Sonic other clubs have since taken up this feature. The club has recently had several thousand letter-heads printed using the design of the club and they are being used by the members in their correspondence. A few of the plans of the club for the future are as follows: A summer camp, at which experiments with portable radio outfits will be eonductedg a trip to HK. ll." for the purpose of visiting the Physics departineut in which a member of the club is an instructor. Special 1ll0l1Og1'Hl'11 pins are being worn by C. R. C. meiubers. The club has also subscribed for several of the leading scientific magazines for the use of the members. The Engineering Club t HE Engineering Club was organized in December, 1915, by Prof. J. hi. Kaho, its purpose being to acquaint the young men of the High School who have decided upon engineering as 5'fJaY?i' 'mv J their life work with those who have already trodden the path over which all engineers must journey, and to give them some idea of the opportunity which awaits young men choosing this field. field. This term the club has been very active in giving its members the best of opportunities to become thoroughly acquainted with their voca- tion, and what will be necessary for them to do in order to become effi- cient engineers. Talks have been given this term by Kenneth Sutlierland. Ray Long. Raymond Morehouse, NVilliam. Kellogg, Roswell Cofran, William Moseley. and by the superintendent of the air brake department of Santa Fe shops, Mr. H. G. XVood. - About eighty-three members of tl1e high school are contemplating becoming engineers but out of this number only twenty-five attend the meetings. The officers of the club are: Wm. A. Beasley, Presidentg Ken- neth Sutherland, Vice Presidentg Arthur Saville, Secretary and Treasurer. June ALOHA OE 1916 l 9flgNJ:4"' J 4-'EW W A K Wy?

And a more pep-full and earnest organization isn't to be found in Topeka High School. L An The Glee Club, which numbers about forty girls at pres- ent, is admirably guided in the paths of music by its director, Mr. Smith. It is given places upon all of the important school programs, and fills them satisfactorily, too. Some of the songs that the club has sung are, '4Doan Yo' Cry Ma Honey," t'Lovely Night," "Carmena," "Kerry Dance," 4'They Met on a Twig of a Chestnut Tree," and "De Coppah Moon." An iinportant step of progression was made by organizing the club. The officers chosen were: President, Pauline Sanders, Vice President, Ruth Burgettg Secretary, Lura Barnes, Manager, Faye Knox, Librarian, Ruth NVard5 and Woi'lcl Reporter, Nela Fritz. The statement of the important business carried on would surprise you. lVeek by week this Glee Club is becoming a more permanent and sub- stantial orgauization. Very soon the Topeka High School will forget the 'tDark Ages" in which it had no Girls' Glee Club. 4 June . ALOHA OE 1916 The Boys' Glee Club HIS year the Boys' Glele Club has been more prosperous than ever before, owing to its organization for business. The oth- eers are : President, Matthew Kendall 5 Vice President, Horace Bowman, Secretary, Joseph Hicks, Manager, Roy C. Naylorg Librarian, Howard Naylor, Assistant Librarian, Laurent Schwartz. In the past year they have developed a first class entertain- ment worthy of presentation at any place Elllfl at any time. The first half of their entertainment eousists of Glee Club songs and other numbers furnished by readers and soloists. The second half is in the Simpiif a minstrel show. In this ll. Davis, the "comedy kingf' is the 'fprima donna" of the company. H. Davis made his debut, as a soloist, at the Congregational Church. 4NV11en his chosen quartet failed him, he sur- prised everybody present by singing a solo. Lyman King, the much Wanted dramatic artist, is the running mate of H. Davis in this setting. NVhen those two start we invariably say, "XVhat next?" The success of the Glee Club is due to their leader and director, Prof. S. B. Smith. June ALOHA- OE 1916 The Jubilee Singers 'HE Jubilee Singers will now favor us with a seleetionf' There was slight applause. VVe had never heard the Jubilee Singers and we were rather inclined to be skeptical as to their ability. But they filed onto the platform, eight of tl1e1n, and looked at us as bravely as they dared. "O, Lord, I'in hungry and ll want to be fed, O, Jesus, feed nie," and so on to the end. There was nothing skeptical, nothing critical, nothing derogatory about the storm of applause that swept over the assembly as they Walked off the stage. Our hearts were won by these earnest boys who sang as if their hearts were in their singing. They have not sung for ns very often, in fact, they are rather stingy with their songs, but the plaintive strains of "O, Lord, I,1l1 hnngry,', will never cease to vibrate ainong' the freseoes of the assembly hall. June ALOHA OE 1916 The Emporia Trip tiff-:""ij musical organizations of Topeka High School have had their part in helping to fill the trophy case. The three loving cups won in the State Music- al Contest, held at Emporia, April 23, 1916, are no small part of the collection of cups and trophies that the High School possesses. The cups won by the Boys' Glee Club, by the Mixed Chorus, and by Edna Gish in sight reading, are not the only honors that were given to T. H. S. Margaret Rust was given second place as soloist and Inez Horner won third place in the piano solo contest. There were only three entries in the Or- chestra contest, which explains the fact that our Orchestra won third place. Much disappointment was expressed when it was heard that Margaret XVolfe, pianist, was ill and could not go to Emporia. It was also regretted that Miss Ewing could not go, as chaperon., but Miss Olcott and Mrs. Rutledge proved to be very acceptable substitutes. NVl1GIl the Topeka contestants were feeling worried as to the outcome of the contest, nothing could have been more en- couraging than the telegram which they received from the 2' Juniors of T. H. S. wishing them success. It was distinctly a time for merry making, but withal a touch of sadness pervaded the atmosphere during the whole Emporia trip, for everyone realized that if Topeka High School enters the contest next year the delegation must be accompan- ied by a new musical director. For two short years Mr. Smith has lived and moved among us, and in that time, he has en- deared himself to every student in Topeka High School. Next fall he leaves for Boston, and he takes with him the love of every one with whom he has come in contact.

Mr. Ilepworth grew very weary of trying to finance a football team on half enough money, so he proposed au. organization to back the school. Accordingly, the Athletic Association was formed, and no longer is Mr. Hepworth forced to go without lunch in order to save expenses. For the Athletic Association is a live organizationg it receives the ,support of every student worthy of attencling'Hig11 School. The Association financed the football team, the basketball squad, the track team and the tennis tournament. It put on "stunt" night early in the term, which was so decidedly successful as to be voted an annual affair.

HE High School Club of the Young WOmG117S Christian Asso- ciation has a purpose, as all organizations of the school do. This purpose is to bring the students to a personal relation with Jesus Christ. This club, more than any other organiza- tion, expresses our best and highest ideals. In November of the year 1913, a group of eleven girls met together and organized the T. H. S. Y. WV. C. A. There were seventy members that year, and at the present time that number has more than doubled. The club has had a very successful year. It has been fortunate in having outside speakers at some of the meetings and in having talks by some of the members of the Boys' Club. We sincerely hope that the two clubs will soon have regular joint meetings. ' The club meetings have been well attended and its members are look- ing forward to the time when every girl in High School will belong to the Y. W. C.

June ALOHA OE 1916 Curtis Nettels Kenneth McCandless Dean Wilson Lyman King The Boys' lub OPEKA High School has no organizations which are essen- tially of a religious nature, save the Y. VV. O. A. and the Boys' Olub. For this reason alone, if for no other, these two clubs 5'4.TiV" W should receive the support of the entire student body. But the Boys' Club, while essentially a Christian organ- ization, incorporates into itself many other ideals. It is by no means a reform organization, existing to reform students who are not like its members. Its purpose is not to preach evils of high school life, nor to recommend a remedy for said evilsg it is founded on basis of student thought, student ideas, and student interests. The club meets on every Monday evening at 6:15 in the cafeteria. A "two-biti' supper is dished up. for three jitneysg after which discussions are held. Questions like these are pondered over: "Wl1at will my vocation be?" "Is prize fighting de1noralizing?" "Should managers of student enterprises be reimbursed?" Other forms of program are also carried out. One night we tramped to Burnett's mound, "and the wind howled dismallyf, One night We invited the members of the Y. W. C. A.g one night we held an eloquence contest which John Troxell won with his stirring oration, ffThe Decline of Virile Manhood." A political party convention, a mock trial, a highly dramatic playg these and many other features provided enter- tainment during the year. Our president, Curtis Nettels, has been the life of the club. He has been a friend to every member, a friend that we Will remember as long as we live.

However 5 URING the past year a dramatic wave has swept over Topeka ir 7 the Dramatic Club has carried out all its undertakings suc- cessfully and has done even more than the niost-optimistic of persons. could hope for. This gives the performers a chance to show what they can do on the stage and the audience the freedom to criticise and to boast of their own ability. The people who put on the "Fairy Play" certainly portrayed a beautiful dream, and "Back to the Fawn" was just one big long laugh. And did you hear about our party? Such impromptu acting and such eats! Our purpose is to extend throughout the club a distinction between good and undesirable playsg a greater knowledge of the best dramatic literatureg and an idea of the work involved in all dramatic lines. Having lived up to our purpose, We feel satisfied with the past year 's Work, but we are hoping to be even more successful next year, if such a, thing be possible.

The team that went to lllanhattan was composed of YValter Cole, Curtis Nettels and Paul Youngg while Faith Young, Thomas Dewey and Byron Collins met the Kansas City team here. A remarkable thing' about the debating teams was the wide dissim- ilarity in the personnel, of the eontestants. The rapid mode of attack of lYalter Cole, the sparl-:ling wit of Curtis Nettels, the 1llilg11GllS1'1l of Paul Young, the eold logic of Thomas Dewey, the masterful control of English by Byron Collins, and the aggressiveness of Faith Young were some of the most noticeable differences in our team. The teams were at splendid monument to the work of Prof. Beneke. who gave so mueli of his time and talent i11 developing the debaters. June ALOHA OE 1916 The Trail of Kismet By CHARLES B. HOYT TIE AWARDEN tilted baek in his swivel ehair, fastening a steady gaze on the tall, gaunt figure before him. "I have some good news for you." he said. Seeing no if was - change of expression on the face of the eouviet, he hurried ou: "You are free. Your innocence was established this morning. The guilty man confessed on his death-bed. It is bad that justice should have bungled things, but?" The warden stopped. Ile was looking squarely into the deep-soeketed eyes of the convict. And they were afire. Hate burned there. '4Tell it to me-all thisli' the racked voice was saying. 'CI knew you would. Sorry that justice bungled? lVhat good is your sympathy or the law's now? I told them at the trial that he-this man who eon- fessed-was the thief. They laughed at ine. They knew. The law- it always does. And see what it brought? llihile I slaved year in and year out behind these walls he eonvineed her-the only one I held dear in my life--that I was guilty. She loved nie. but she aeeepted him. Then, two years after their marriage, she died. And now you're telling me it is too bad-too bad that justice should have bungled-- HY:-t you cannot give me baek anything you have taken. You ean't even offer ine what paltry happiness there is in inouey. You ean.'t even-" The warden touehed a bell at his side. Two deputies entered the room. He pointed at. the prostrate figure on the floor. HNews too niueh for hinif' he explained. And then. as the door was opened and the shrunken, lifeless form of the eonviet carried out, the warden looked after it a bit nieditatively. '4Funuy.', he mused, as he turned baek to his desk, "what crazy things those fellows will say when they go out of their head like that." June ALOHA 0E 1916 loha Oe The years are gone, to come no moreg We Wander forth to other landsg And other ones, with other hands Will hold the place we held before. We hope that they who follow may Succeed Wherever we have failcdg May forward eolne where we have trailed: And make the course a broader Way. The school has bee11 our closest friendg To it we gladly hold our eyesg We hope to see it ever rise And grow in strength to have no end. And now, tho not unmoved, we leaveg We feel that life's been real hereg We feel that we have been sincere. And yet in goiiig. do not grieve. For We have learned at least to see, To strive beyond our narrow reaehg To learn, and having learned. to teach Ourselves more strong and true to be. And now, but one, We pass as from A whole, where equal with the rest We only strove to be our best- And so from that we better come. Tho you, oh school. our feeble trace In course of time shall wash away, With us will never be the day XVhcn others occupy your place. -Curtis Nettels.

Ji. lass ay F ORIGINALITY is the basis of a successful class day, the outlook indicates the June 1916 graduating class of the Topeka lligh School will have one of the best which has ever been given. One feature in connection with tl1e semi- annual exercises is entirely new. It will be an all-day affair. Beginning at 9:45 o'clock in the morning of Thursday, June 1, the class day program will be presented. The principal feature will be a farce in one act. A large cast has been selected to take part in the farcical sketch. Second to this will be "The New Satan" a sketch of brimstone and sizzling ingenuity. The piece was written by Charles B. Hoyt, and will be staged under the personal direction of the author and Thomas E. Dewey. Standing out as important on the program is an act to be presented by Miss Lucille Elmore, Topeka's premiere danseuse and actress. Special musical numbers will be given by Miss Margaret Rust and Miss Faith Young. A black-face abbreviated comedy will be given by Harry Davis and Raymond Long. At 12:15 o'eloek a reception will be given in the gymnasium for the members of the Senior class. The banquet will be served at 12 :-15 o'clock, to be followed by brief after-dinner talks by A. -l. Stout and Paul Young, president of the Senior class. The members of the graduating class will be guests of the Orpheum theater management at the matinee i11 the afternoon. In the evening a lawn party will be given at the home of Miss Virginia Kitchell. Thru courtesy of Roy Crawford, manager of the Grand, special scen- ery will be furnished for the two sketches to be presented on the morning program. The members of the committee who will be in charge of the class day program are: Thomas E. Dewey. chairmang Miss Faith Young, Charles B. Hoyt, Miss Lucille Elmore, Miss Helen Rutledge, Miss Marian Dana, Paul Young, Miss Esther Thomas, Miss Esther Lindell and Miss Violet Matthews. Pncm Rum, WMMEW III 0: .lu Ll?

Ny mg on June ALOHA OE 1916 ur View-Point-The Theme ot a Dreamer FTER all has been .said and done and we sit back to eireum- , XX.i' speetly view this institution called a high school. we see a miniature world upon which each elass, like a passing gen- L s SQ - .i eration, leaves its imprint. What a study such a print would -AMW if make for the impressionist. Perhaps a few of the lilies would be broad and straight, others narrow and erookedg here a deep dent, there a. level spaeeg maybe there would be a bloteh or two, and no doubt a few weak, wavering streaks. And so we might go on forever examining the eolor and shading of this variegated design. But to bring our study to a close, suppose we place our miniature picture in the camera, of the world and with the penetrating rays of truth focus the image on the screen of life. TV,hat a change! NVhat's wrong with the camera? The light is poor, or the foeus is off, for surely this is not the same picture. But when we yield to the promptings of curiosity a.nd examine it minutely we find that the general outline is the same. One of our broad lines has wavered and its color weakenedg another has widened and taken on a deeper hue. Here is a crooked line, broken up and almost indistin- guishable. This one, formerly narrow and insipid, has straightened and stands out clearly. That. bloteh. has grown blaeker and more ir- regularg this one has rounded out and blends harmoniously with its surroundings. A few of our lines have disappeared entirely. Some leave the design more beautiful by their ahseuceg others, a spaee whose blankness eaunot be filled. And so, if we gaze upon this design long enough, the figures become jumbled. Two or three prominent figures gradually stand out higher and brighter, each dominating its distinct field. Lines and figures which in the original print fairly glowed in their brillianee have now been submerged in the background. Thus we might continue enlarging our picture until the whole disappears in obscurity. Here we have the relation of the high school to the world. One is the enlargement of the other. The joys, sorrows, struggles and triumphs which we experience here are but magnified there. Affairs upon which we have laid so mueh stress and energy may be found to be mere petty trifles. Some member of our elass may be pointed out to us as a young man fit to walk into the open outstretched arms of the world and there fulfill his duty. Another in our midst may be elassed as scarce fit or able to untie the shoestrings of mistress world. But let us judge ourselves. How many of us on meeting our master eould be addressed, "You have been faithful, over a few things, I will make you ruler over many."

After noting these points, stop and think of the cost of publishing such a book, and think also of the insignificant price which you paid for this production. The next question is: lYhe1'e the rest of the money coming from to pay for the book The answer is: From the MERCHANTS of Topeka. The remaining part of our Annual consists of about forty pages of advertisements tendered us by the patriotic business men of Topeka. Among the advertisenieiits you will find five pages of "Giggles and Grinsf' or jokes on the members of the class, two pages of slams by our famous comedian, "Happy7' Davis. and a nunihei' of snap shots of some of the guilty ones. ' Look over these advertiseineiitsg bear in mind who the loyal men of Topeka. are and remembei' that they made ALOHA OE possible.
