FORTY years of youth have passed through the halls of Topeka High School -forty years of hurrying footsteps and laughing voices. Forty years ago the North Building was a proud new structure: forty years ago the chairs shone, the walls and floors were unmarred. But what matter if now that shining newness is gone? It has given way to a lovable old age. Memories cloak the scratches and cracks until they are not discernible, and everyone, from sophomore to senior, will remember forever not only the scarred and worn buildings but the many friendships their kindly walls have fostered and sheltered. The 1931 Sunflower is, for all students, the tangible reminder of life in the old Topeka High School buildings. It is a volume of memories of your teachers, your classmates, your clubs, and your activities. As you turn its pagegi may they bring a thousand happy reminiscences, a thousand happy dreams of auld lang synel s X , I 'rim ss? mx fav,- 5 W gr 1 e c do 1 , ra -fc a a-.A a ,... ! -- 'X Jplllgn Y 1 2- i - - .un Ah' 5 -T ?5: , E fi ie 17: 1-.

A' M K P3 7 K 9 Y Miss Ewing ,- LAST summer when members of the Sunflower staff decided to make the his- tory of Topeka High School the theme of the 1931 yearbook, they found that Miss Laura L, Ewing, dean of girls, had been a member of the faculty throughout the entire life of the North Building. Consequently, in tribute to her years of unselfish service, standing for all that is best and happiest in the life of the school, the staff wishes this 1931 annual, the last published in the old school, to be "Miss Ewing's book."

It was of the latest architecture and was as much a source of pride as its successor is to students of 1931. Many changes and additions have been made in the course of the years be- cause of the ever-increasing enrollment. The assembly hall was originally on the third floor, and there was no cafeteria or gymnasium. During its thirty-seven years of service, students have come and students have gone, until traditions now cling like ivy to the red brick walls. When this year of school is ended, seniors, juniors, and sophomores alike will bid fare- well to the beloved school with gratitude in their hearts for its protection and with affection for students and faculty members they have known within its halls.

A N W D if SY The South Building ELEVEN years after the completion of the North Building, increased enroll- ment called for an addition to the high school. The South or Manual Train- ing Building was formally opened May 10, 1905. Since that time, under the supervision of the vice-principal, it has maintained a hospitable identity of its own. Like the North Building it has its history and traditions, dear to students and faculty alike. For the last five years it has been the scene of a new activity-the night school. At first open for only a few classes, it now is completely filled and several classes have been started in the North Building. The South Building will remain vivid in the memories of several thousand grateful men and women who have received within its walls opportunity for further education and advancement.

When the ever-increasing enrollment made more room necessary in 1924, the offices of the superintendent and board of education were moved from the North Building into the new quar- ters provided. Teachers, supervisors, and maintenance men were given adequate accommodations in the new building: and even high school students profited to the extent of six classrooms on the third floor of i'The Annex." The Library Expansion of the high school buildings group took a last step in 1928 with the addition of the portable frame cottage placed on the property north of the North Building. Used originally for a kindergarten at Quincy School, at the high school it became the library and study hall. It had seats for 124 students, but often at the opening of a new term more than 200 pupils were enrolled. The heat of an October afternoon, the peaceful if begrimed mural figures, the huge black stove that smoked-all Will be remembered by the students who had classes in "The Library."

Towne was principal in 1870, the first step in secondary education in Topeka was taken. During that same year, Miss Towne, with the help of Professor Bonfield, city superintendent, organized a "B, Junior," or high school class which included a study of physical geography, botany, algebra, and French. The Board of Education in August, 1871, passed a resolution calling for the establishment of a high school department in the newly constructed Lincoln school building. Thus the school was officially opened in September, 1871, with Prof. C. W. Raynes as principal. Thirty-six pupils were enrolled at the end of two weeks, and C. H. Hoffman was hired as the first regular teacher. But Mr. Hoffman, finding the students a rather unruly group, resigned, leaving his position to Prof. D. A. Hoover, who also soon resigned. Prof. Linaeus A. Thomas was secured the next year from Mt. Union, Ohio, and the school was transferred to the Washburn building where it became known as "Washburn High School." Professor Thomas laid the foundation for the present Topeka High School, organizing it and working out an adequate course of study. Following him as principal in direct order were William Crichton, John E. Williamson, Harry G. Larimer, Calvin W. Hickman, Professor John L. Wil- liams, Luther Denny Whittemore, Harry L. Miller, Aaron J. Stout, now super- intendent of Topeka public schools, R. R. Cook, A. M. Darnell, and our present principal, W. N. Van Slyck. Among the teachers who have given long service, Miss Laura L. Ewing holds first honors. Starting in 1892 as a Greek and Latin teacher, Miss Ewing soon advanced to the position of vice-principal and dean of girls. This year on ac- count of ill health, Miss Ewing has had to give up her work temporarily, but next year she will be back at her old duties in a new home. Four years after Miss Ewing became a member of the faculty, Miss Bessie Boughton started as an English teacher. Miss Anne Monteith began teaching mathematics in 1901, and W. H. Greider joined the faculty as a physics teacher in 1903. The following years brought Miss Maude M. Bishop, 1904, Albert H. Win- ter, 1905, and John H. Hoehner, 1906. For several years Mr. Hoehner coached athletics. The present faculty was increased in 1907 by the addition of Miss Nellie M. Ansel, Miss Abigail McElroy, and J. F. Kaho, vocational adviser. Every year since that time, a few teachers have left and a few have been added and now as we go forward to our new building, we take with us one of the finest faculties in the country.

Stout, superintendent of schools, represents the highest type of leadership. Mr. Stout is now too much occupied with duties covering the whole city system to maintain the close association with Topeka High School that he had as its principal, but Topeka High School students know him for his great in- terest in all that pertains to their welfare. His spirit and influence are felt in all of their activities. The new high school is a memorial to his labor and vision.

His is the guiding hand that pilots our school safely through the year, with its difficulties and annoyances, its advancements and triumphs, As the first principal of the new high school, Mr. Van Slyck will make it an institution of inspiration as Well as an institution of learning. Topeka High School students and teachers are proud to have Mr. Van Slyck as their principal.

C. H. Hepworth, vice-principal, is a combination of executive ability, tire- less energy, and droll humor. So will Topeka High School students carry his memory through the years to come. As vice-principal, he has yet found opportunity in five years to build up the night school from its beginning to an enrollment of 1500 students. Miss Ewing Miss Laura L. Ewing, dean of girls, has made innumerable friends among the many students whom she has helped with her understanding counsel. Her unfailing sympathy is only one of her many fine qualities. Miss Ewing's deeds during her service in Topeka High School have proved her sterling char- acter. all Page 14 CFD .wg : i A . 1'- 'I 75,3 5 Z? zfiig M y QQFQ: tai ,11: 71 2- 521 A- - - "Jia 5521252216:- Af' Y N -- "' o 'T el' " "WF rage 1:1 CT? -,iw V l , , f Y ,Y f Y Y -il ,f ff A-fu' ' ' T - ' - f - "2 ' '-1 ?s:.

Students and teachers of Topeka High School have no more loyal and faithful friends than the caretakers and housekeepers who so patiently keep the buildings presentable. Mrs. Luke mothers the girls of the North Buildingg Mrs. Nelson looks after the girls in the South Building. All the custodians are friends of the students, and their good cheer is reflected in the hearty greetings that hail them on every hand.

Neil reigned as King at the 1930 All-School party with dignity. His election to the honor bears testimony to the sincere and Wide friendship he has among students of Topeka High School. Page 21 CT?

Her capacity for work is infinite and she has served on countless committees with no thought of credit for her hard Work. This accounts for the in- fluence she has always held in high school affairs and for her election by students as the senior girl who has given most service to Topeka High School. President of the Senior Dramatic club, chairman of the social committee of the senior class, president of the junior class-these are only the high spots in a career of joyous, unselfish giving of time and effort to the best interests of her school.

He climaxed his career by a 40- yard line smash in the game with the Haskell reserves. This run early in the fourth quarter proved the only touchdown of the encounter. With an abundance of speed Dan skirted ends for consistent gains, while his drives through the line were most difficult to stop and often ended in scores. In addition to being the leading scorer of the conference last year, Dan has been captain of the mythical all-Northwest team for two years. His graduation will leave a big hole in the backfield next sea- son. REVIEW OF THE SEASON Vv'ith eleven lettermen returning and an abundance of less experienced material, Coach E. B. Weaver developed in 1930 the second consecutive all-victorious football team, By turning in win after win the Trojans made it possible for Topeka High to be the first Northeast school to cap- ture the conference title for two successive seasons. In two years opponents have tallied but two touchdowns. The infantile paralysis ban in September hampered early practice, but Salina was easily put to rout, 31 to 0, in the first night game in the history of the school. Dispelling any doubt as to the outcome of the Olathe tilt in the opening minutes, the Trojans swept through to a 33 to O victory. A light Argentine High team could not stem the tide of the invading Topekans and suffered a 34 to 0 setback. The Trojan regulars counted 28 points before the first half was completed, when they were removed in favor of the reserves. In one of the fiercest fought games of the season, the Black and Gold eleven wore down the Ottawa Cyclones and triumphed 26 to 0. While outweighed, the Trojans outfought the Red and White team. A crowd of 2.500 spectators witnessed the game. Going to Wichita for a struggle with East High, the Topekans defeated the Ark Valley eleven, Zl to 7. The only opponent touchdown of the year was carried across on a 90-yard run after an interception of a forward pass. After a scoreless first half, Coach Weaver's proteges came back to snatch a l5 to 0 win from a highly touted Emporia aggregation. A belated running attack uncorked in the last half proved the deciding feature in the renewal of clashes with the old rival, Lawrence High in the Kansas University stadium. The 26 to 0 triumph cinched the Northeast league championship and closed the conference season. Playing the Haskell Institute reserves in a post-season charity game, the Trojans nosed out the Indians, 7 to 0, For the first time the Topeka High eleven was held scoreless for three quarters, but a 40-yard run by Captain Emrich gave the verdict to the Topekans. Page 92 CTT? llw W M f ie. -,V -Arg, - ,f , -, .l 1-' 2 7: ROBERT BLISS Center, Weight 180 "Bob" came into his own this year and played a brand of ball which was scarcely outclassed, When a play was called through the center you could be almost certain there would be a hole there, with Bob leading the charge. Just the reverse was true when the plays were coming the other way. ROLAND ERWIN Tackle, Weight l70 A hard. consistent game marked Roland's style last season. He diag- nosed the opponents' plays and was one of the keystones in the best for- ward wall Topeka High has ever had. This was his last year with the team. ERANK GRANGE End, Weight l58 Holding up his end of the line with bulldog determination, Frank served equally well on offensive and defen- sive thrusts. He was always breaking up attempted end runs by getting through the interference and pulling down the ball carrier. A sure tackler, he was a great defensive player. DICK HERRON Guard, Weight l57 Dick played his first year of var- sity competition with marked success. Although not a flashy player, he could be depended upon to give his best. Dick will not be available for the 1931 edition of the football eleven. IVAN HOLSTRUM End, Weight 159 "Si" was one of the untried sopho- mores this year, but after letting him play in a few games Coach Weaver decided he possessed the necessary class. He broke into several games, improv- ing each time. He will probably fill a big place on the squad next fall. KENNETH KELL Quarterback, Weight 175 Running the team through victory after victory has been A'Kenny's" task for two seasons. His strategy and un- canny selection of the right play at the right time gained his all-conference selection. Placing punts to the far corners of the field, he pulled the team out of numerous tight places. Page i l CTT? "-llvua Q- Q' E QL- it - '?" 1 A c' - ,gf-X -" O -'ferr 'ctw Page 94 LYLEHLA CROIX Guard, Vx-'eight 163 Lyle had a vital part in most of the action. Bolstering up the defense, he helped the line repulse attack after attack by opponents on the Black and Gold goal line. Down under all the punts he often tackled the runner he- fore he could get into his stride. RALPH LA CROIX Guard, Xyeight 158 All opponents remember "Bus" as the tiny tornado who broke through to throw runners for losses. He seemed to know just when and how to hit a man to produce the best effects. Ever aggressive, he figured in most of the tackles during a game and made a pastime of breaking up plays. VUILLIAM LAWSON Halfback. Vifeight 165 "Bill" is a sure tackler. His biggest asset for two years has been a remark- able left-handed pass which he could place just at the right place before the waiting runner. A great player in making holes and running interference, Bill made possible many touchdown drives. JOHN LEEPER End. XVeight l58 John recaptured his berth again this year and was selected on All-North- east teams for 1929 and 1930, He was on the receiving end of many of Topeka's gains through the air, a fact which had much to do with making the Lawson-to-Leepet pass combina- tion the most feared in the league. VVYAYNE NUDSON Halfback, XVeight 153 This is the first year "Hucki' has had much opportunity to break into the contests. He made good in his opening game and showed steady im- provement in each succeeding encoun- ter. He had a lot of drive, and his speed aided him in doing his bit. BEN OXVENS Tackle, XVeight ZOO "Bennie" started the season with an enviable record from last year to sut- pass. Consistently opening big holes in the opposing line on the offense, he was also a bulwark on the defense. Coach XVeaver will be aided by his presence in the lineup again next fall. crtv "fl UML in Z: 5 i5E XX N , . f .fl f - f H af H 1- I - . ., T l ,N L-- J, ..-. VQ.. E E - . TREK.

His ability to take out the opposition made possible many of the long Trojan end runs. He should become one of the best ends in the conference next year. lVlARl.lN POlNDEX'liER Center, Vileight 195 Vwlhen Marlin came to Topeka from Vvlyandotte High. he used his weight to good advantage and was a power- house of strength. His accurate passes were just where the backs needed them for the start of scoring drives. RALPH SNYDER Tackle, Vwleight 172 XVhi1e not always in the starting lineup, Ralph lost little time in show- ing his ability after breaking into the conflict. He was a most capable re- serve and could at any time step into a breach in the line and keep the for- ward wall impenetrable. ERNEsT WERNIQR End. XVeight 147 Although quite light, "Ernie" had the knack of pulling down pigskins out of the ether with remarkable ease. His determined aggressiveness, together with his pass snagging ability, made the Topeka team a constant threat in that mode of battle. RAY WILLIAMS Halfback, Weight 155 Shifty on his feet, Ray was a classy open field runner, and he possessed a mystifying style which caused oppos- ing tacklers to fail on many attempts to bring him down. As safety on the defense Ray is one of the reasons only a single touchdown was made against the Trojans all season. . ,:i. Page 95 Football Squad, l93O TOP Row: Bliss, Lawson, L.

He captained the conference all-stars, as well as placing on the state honor roll. PAUL BETHEL Forward Paul entered school from Lawrence High at the spring semester. In his second contest he supplied a great portion of the fireworks which downed his former team-mates. ORAN BURNS Center Oran came to the varsity squad with ex- perience from the second team, and he shows much promise as future first team material. He proved his worth as a reserve pivot man. PAUL GILPIN Guard Paul is another of the new men who saw action several times during the season. Al- though he did not quite make his letter, Paul will furnish stiff opposition for one of the forward positions next year. KENNETH KELL Forward "Kenny" was only eligible for the first semester's play, but during this time he con- tinued his steady performance of last year. Combining fine work with sure handling of the ball he followed in shots by team-mates to turn them into points. JAMES LANDES Center "Jim" stepped into the regular lineup this season, and did his share toward bringing the team through a successful season, An arm in- jury prevented him from scoring sensa- tionally, but he always played a sound de- fensive game. 1 RALPH LA CROIX Guard "Bus" brought added glory to himself and the school when he was selected on the all-state honor roll. Diminutive yet exceed- ingly fast, he was able to hold down the leading scorers of the conference and at the same time collect counters. CHARLES LYON Guard "Chuck," after being used at forward for the greater part of the year, was changed to a guard berth where he fitted in at once. His free throw in the final seconds of the Ottawa game turned the hectic regional final in To- peka's favor.

He played a consistent floor game and led the Trojans in many of their scoring drives. For two years he has been a tower of strength in the forward wall. ALLAN PETT Guard Consistent in staying with his man. Allan caused forwards to make their shots hur- riedly, and he kept his opponent bottled up. I-le also possessed scoring faculties and dropped in baskets from well out on the floor. EUGENE ROBINSON Forward NVhen the offense was not clicking just right. "Gene" would be sent in, He would instantly start the Trojan barrage of baskets and put in the needed punch into the team. CHAUNCEY SHARPE Center Chauncey utilized his six feet four inches to good advantage. and was able to outjump all the centers in the league. He also showed to good advantage at guard position as he could capture balls out of the melee, ,., Basketball Squad, 1931 FRONT Row: Charles Lyon, Eugene Robinson.

Weaver and the Trojan basketeers experienced a most successful season. The Northeast Kansas league championship re- turned to Topeka in 1931 for the first time since 1928, Another regional tournament was won, and the final round of the consolation division was reached by the Black and Gold quintet. Opening the season against Westport High of Kansas City, Mo., the team showed a decided lack of offensive strength and took the short end of a 14 to 10 count. A much better looking combination defeated Salina, 14 to 9, after a late rally placed Topeka in front. Indications of the superb Trojan defense were prevalent in the Argentine encounter. The Mustangs failed to make a field goal and could score but four free throws, while Topeka gar- nered 18 points. The following week-end was disastrous, as Ottawa won 35 to 19, and St. Joe Central repeated the next night, 16 to 12. Atchison was taken into camp by the reserves, 35 to 15, after the regulars had run up an early lead. The first tie game in the history of the school was played with Wichita North. At the end of the regulation time the score was deadlocked at 17-all, and two extra periods failed to change the standing of either team. Three thousand spectators in the Washburn Field House witnessed the battle, the largest crowd attending a Topeka game during the season. Rosedale was unable to keep pace in the last half and trailed 22 to 32 at the finish of a game played on the Mt. Martian court. Last year's state champions, Wyandotte High, invaded Topeka and nosed out the Trojans, 23 to 22. Neither team forged more than four points ahead during the struggle so that the one point advantage held by the Bulldogs at the close of the first quarter was the deciding factor. Aided by a large rooting section, the Trojans downed the representatives of Lawrence High on the losers' court, 26 to 18. Page was high point man with 12 counters. Bethel also showed his former team-mates some fancy shooting. scoring 11 points. The Olathe Eagles could not protect the home citadel against the Black and Gold attack and suffered a 25 to 15 reverse. Continuing to pile up victories, the Trojans nosed out Emporia 19 to 18 after three extra periods. Emrich and Page kept Topeka in the running, with the latter accounting for the winning points. Coach Weaver used the starting lineup only four minutes in securing a 30 to ll win over Leavenworth. All the substitutes were able to show their talents to good advantage in this league victory. Wyandotte repeated an earlier win by leading when the final gun sounded 21 to 20. The Red and White five capitalized all scoring opportunities in administering the first official league defeat. With the Northeast title at stake the Trojans rose to great heights to answer successfully the Ottawa challenge, 22 to 13. Leading the greater part of the game Topeka produced a scoring drive led by Page and Emrich in the last half. Lawrence won a return engagement the following night in a listless encounter. 15 to 11, to finish the league schedule. Participating in the Ottawa regional tournament, Topeka met Lawrence in the semi-final round and came out victor, 19 to 15. Emrich broke a tie late in the fourth period, and Page cinched it with a field goal in the final minute. An Ottawa whirlwind attack left the Weaver five far behind in the opening minutes of the finals. Reaching a peak in fighting spirit during the last half, the Trojans brought the game to even terms, and a gratis throw by Lyons with but seconds left to play won the struggle, 20 to 19. A let-down in the brand of ball played at the regional meet was evidenced as Topeka went down before Manhattan in the opening round of the state classic, 22 to 20. Despite losses due to injury and sickness, the Black and Gold quintet proved itself superior to Sabetha and Arkansas City in the consolation. A husky Quinter High School team nosed out Topeka, 19 to 16, in the finals of that division to take the title to Western Kansas. Finishing the league schedule with seven victories and but one setback was alone a worthy feat. In addition several outstanding non-conference schools were defeated. With three lettermen back and the problem of a suitable gymnasium settled, prospects are ex- ceedingly bright for next season's quintet. Page 100 Svpring Sqnnrm pl cn?

Barnett in the position of athletic director has played an important part in the advance- ment of athletics in Topeka High School. He has been responsible for everything in connection with the sports, from the arranging of the schedules to all accommodations and equipment for the teams. In addition Mr. Barnett coaches the tennis and golf teams, both of which have met iavith unusual success. Perhaps more actively engaged with the racquet team, it is alone a tribute that this team has not been defeated in a dual meet in a period of three years. BASEBALL COACH While not having his teams so much in the public gaze, C. A. Hays, nevertheless, produces real baseball players. Until this season he has placed the Topeka nine in county league competition. With the formation of the intra-mural six-team league his duties have been increased. He coached a nine this year which was well versed in the art of the game and fully capable of holding its own with high school teams of this section. ASSISTANT COACH Assistant Coach Charles H. Hadley is Coach Weaver's right hand man. In the fall he di- rected the activities of the second football squad, and during the winter coached the reserve bas- ketball team. He was responsible for the instruction of the fundamentals of both these sports. This spring, with each coach confining his efforts to one department. Coach Hadley drilled the dash and relay divisions of the track squad with successful results, "COACH" Topeka High's chief sport mentor, E. B, Weaver, has continued to produce outstanding teams this year. He developed the second undefeated football eleven which won the Northeast title for the second time. His proteges of the basketball court worked his man-to-man defense to perfection in capturing the conference championship. In track he was responsible for the fine showing of the Topeka team in the field events, these entrants being sure point-getters. Coach Weaver's teams for the past six years have won wide recognition, and he holds a place in the select circle of the state's best coaches. GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION The Topeka High Girls' Athletic Association is a member of the Kansas State Athletic Asso- ciation. It was organized for the purpose of offering a standardized program of intra-mural athletics for girls. The activities in which the points are won include swimming, skating, hiking, baseball, gym- nastic classes, volley ball, horseback riding, tennis. For each award training rules must be kept. The offices of this year's club are: Sarah Benton, president: Vwfilma Ray Womer. vice presi- dent: Helen Williams, secretary: Ethel Rasmus, treasurerg Arlene Smith, social chairman. Miss Jean Henry, physical education instructor, is the sponsor. During the past year 50 pins have been awarded and 30 school letters. Page 104 l 'I -. .. ' ?2 . gr -5 Eiiq " " Qfi- vii .- ' I ,..

Never an angry word does he say to the laboring students with whom he works, although every minute his sharp ear is tuned to each instrument. Patiently repeating badly sung phrases he firmly commands attention, yet he has a word of encouragement and appreciation to give before dismissal from the endless rehearsals. The things Mr. Lawson accomplishes prove the effectiveness of his methods. The A Capella Chorus of more than BOO Voices has gained distinction for its beautiful tone quality, Besides the ex- cellent Topeka High School orchestra of 100 pieces, Mr. Lawson directs a city-wide Junior High School Orchestra. Each spring each of these organizations gives a concert. band under his organization has grown immensely in size and tone. a cantata is given by the complete music department. The boys' mixed quartet, are much in demand for entertainments, as are also trio. A Capella Chorus The A Capella Chorus will present the cantata, 'lThe Witch's Daughter." by Charles S.

Her glee clubs never enter a concert with failure spelled in their hearts, but with a gay determination to succeed. She has taken her glee clubs to several local sanitariums and institutions to give pleasure. Regardless of the fact that the glee club did not place in the Northeast League contest this year, Miss Fulton is pleased with the work her girls have done, She has five chorus classes, each con- sisting of about 40 students. Each class is an organized glee club which presents programs throughout the year. The girls under Miss Fultons direction have given about seventy-five programs since September, Miss Fulton assisted Mr. Lawson in the production of the cantata this spring, Including 350 Voices Nliss lfulton q 'Q 4,4 The Cantata, based on a poem by Whittier, will be directed by Professor Skilton the evening of May 22, at the city auditorium. Page 131 The Band The Topeka High School band gave its support to home games and out of town games alike. The field drill at Lawrence will not soon be forgotten. The Crchestra Besides aiding in the production of the cantata, the orchestra has presented several school programs. Page 132 Seventy Pieces l The band has also played for dcdicalions. the Governors inaugural and other civic occasions, One Hundred Instruments On several occasions, such as the school plays. a portion of the orchestra is selected to furnish the music.

Her ability as a coach is equally well known: the state- ment that she is in charge of a play is assurance in it- self that an excellent production is forthcoming. Miss Wheelerls gracious manner and flashing smile convey warmth and sincerity. One of the greatest pleasures of a student's high school career is the op- portunity of working under her tutelage.

Hunt-What a great deal this name means to students of the publications de- partment! It stands for quiet, gentle assurance, and encouraging kindness. Miss Hunt has been the adviser of the Sunflower and World for many years, and her patience and trust are ever- lasting. THE WORLD The departmental editor plan was again used for the collecting of World material this year. The editors cooperated well and successfully. The World was awarded first class honor rating by the National Scholastic Press Association and took first place in the state in the K. S. A. C. contest. THE SUNELOWER This is the last "Sunflower" to be edited by a class in the old school. The successful sale of the annual is accredited to the activity ticket plan which was first installed in Topeka High School last fall. THE SGRIBBLER The spring short story classes edited the Scribbler this year under the supervision of Miss Ruth Grandon. This Scribbler carried no advertising and had a larger distribution than that of pre- vious books. Fifteen hundred books were sold. THE HIGH SCHOOL HAPPENINGS Under the editorship of Florence Green in the fall and Mary Lair Howell in the spring, the High School Happenings, published weekly in the Topeka State Journal, maintained their high standard. ' QUILL AND SCROLL Beginning the year with three members from last year the Arthur J. Garruth chapter of Quill and Scroll added five members in December and l5 members in April. The group had three dinners during the year, with speakers at each one. Guests were Frank Tiffany, reporter for the TUPQIGI SIM? JOUFHRIQ E. E. Kelley, Kansas Grass Roots column, Topeka Daily Capital, Arthur J. Garruth, managing editor of The Topeka State Journal: and J. W. Orr and George Barrett of the College Press. The group also sponsored the reorganization of the Junior Press Club. with Helen Gibler as its adviser. Edwin Richards, Pres. Margaret Linn, Sec. Mary Rollman, V.-Pres. Helen Gbbs, Treas.

The sales campaign was opened by an assembly which endeavored to prove to the students the excellence of the magazine, Fifteen hundred tags were printed. and were sold during third hour by members of the short story classes. The finished magazine made its appearance May 8, It contained a wide variety of stories, poems. and sketches, and three hard-earned cuts, There were no ads and the magazine was financed entirely by its sales.

After one week of half-day periods it was closed for two weeks because of an epidemic of infantile paralysis. Upon the students' return, September 29, the campaign for the sale of activity tickets was launched. In the first week more than 1.200 tickets were sold, assuring the success of the pro- ject. This plan, which was tried for the first time in Topeka High, had great part in the bril- liant year which is now closing. All the activities were given much better support than they customarily received. FIVE NEW FACULTY MEMBERS ADDED Three new teachers, Miss Florence Drake, Miss Ruth Jane Grandon, and Carl P. Snyder, were added to the faculty at the beginning of this year. These persons have proved themselves most likable and competent. Miss Drake's work in the Spanish department has been outstanding, and she was one of the promoters of the Spanish banquet. Miss Grandon sponsored the only Scrib- bler published this year. Mr. Snyder has assisted the athletic coaches and been Hi-Y adviser. Because of the overcrowded classes caused by the enrolling of an unusually large Sophomore class and the small number of January graduates, two new teachers were added to the faculty in February. Miss Mary Davis was employed to relieve conditions in the history classes and the study hall. She held classes in one of the rooms of the deserted fourth floor of the North Building. P. W. Chamness was appointed to assist J. H. Hoehner first hour in mechanical drawing. PRACTICE TEACHING STARTS During the second semester eight students in Washburn college who are working for their teachers' certificates assisted in various classrooms. This is the first time that practice teaching has been carried on in Topeka High School. ALFRED PAGE CHOSEN TO HEAD COUNCIL In the annual election Alfred Page was chosen by the student body to fill the most responsible position in the school-the presidency of the Student Council. JUNIOR PLAY REPLACES JANUARY SENIOR PLAY The plays this year have been of the same excellent quality which Miss Gertrude Wheeler always produces. The first play of the year, "New Brooms," was given by the Junior class December 5, taking the place of the one heretofore presented by the January graduates. The next play, "The Goose Hangs High," was presented by the Senior class on March 28. And the Senior Dramatic Club gave its annual production, "The Perfect Alibif' on May 8. ATHLETICS UNIFORMLY SUCCESSFUL Topeka High has excelled the other schools in the Northeast League in athletics this year. Before the largest and peppiest crowd in many years, the football team won the first night foot- ball game from Salina, 31 to 0. For the second successive year Topeka went through the sea- son without being defeated and won the championship of the league. In basketball Topeka won the Northeast League title at the regional tournament at Ottawa. The team, however, was defeated in the first round of the state tournament by Manhattan. DEBATE TEAM TO NATIONAL MEET The debate team won two championships-the Northeast League title and the state Forensic League tournament. Because of these victories, the Board of Education financed a trip for four members of the team to Ripon, Wis., where they took part in the tournament of the National Forensic Debate League. They won second honors in this national meet. SOCIAL EVENTS HAVE UNUSUAL BRILLIANCE Four social successes figured in the last year in the old building. The Junior-Senior Prom. after being postponed several times, proved to be a grand affair. The program was given by the Juniors and was followed by two hours of dancing. The big social event of the year, the All-School Party, was held December 12. Before the dancing each class presented a program. The one given by the Seniors was judged the best. The football banquet in honor of the 1930 Northeast League championship team was given November 26. Dan Emerich was elected captain of the all-victorious team before the dinner. The first city-wide Father and Son banquet was held on February 10. Gov. Harry Wood- ring and "Bo" McMillan, coach at K. S. A. C., were the guest speakers. The idea of the ban- quet was originated and sponsored by the Hi-Y Club under the presidency of LeRoy Clark. More than 1,200 fathers and sons attended.

Fawcett of To- peka high school, snatched the United States national ora- torical championship from the grasp of Horace K. Trollop of Pauline, Kans., in the finals at Washington, D. C., yesterday. Mr. Fawcett orated with such forcefulness that the west wing of the Capitol building was blown entirely away. The damage done will do much to relieve the unemployment sit- uation. In an interview given to the Washington press the champ announced his inten- tion of returning to his home 'TIS TSN! "The school spirit of this dump is a flop." said XV. J. Barnett last Friday in a spe- cial assembly. He is entirely right. It is disgraceful that more do not attend the foot- ball games. What has the world come to when nobody goes out to see palookas who never have their chemistry get beat by the White City, Kan., team 90 to 9. The team feels dejected at this negligence. Ray Williams was totally unable to play during the Tecumseh game because that blond junior was not in the stands. Dan Em- rich was heartbroken and had a complete breakdown when he saw the bowl was empty of even the hot-dog seller. Tf students would only tear themselves away from their town Topeka to begin ex- tenslve naming for 3 hog' shadows across the fighting lessons and sit in the the sun cast long bowl as purple calling career. J. Edmond Mayer, who discovered the brilliant orator, will see that he gets on the right train. When he started to the finals two months ago he woke up on the train 358 miles west of Denver and was quite some time arriving at his destina- tion. Our hero will return to- morrow. The band will meet him at the Scanty Pay depot.

STUDENT IIIJUNIJII MEETS IN TNIIJIN 29 TI IIISEIISS PIIINS Bill Lawsonis Phord Fae- ton Used for Dumping Gum Papers in Kaw. The Student Council met in room Z9 last Wednesday to discuss means of transporting five carloads of last year's English test papers to the city dump. Also, plans were made to get rid of 34,798 reams of unused material written for the World during the current semester. Another problem which was solved was the disposal of 20 tons of empty gum wrappers which were found in the audi- torium after the last assembly. The system used in this work is to be quite simple, Two committees of 12 will alter- hately push Bill Lawson's Fhord Phaeton, which will be loaded with the wrappers, un- til they reach the foremost peak in Calhoun Bluffs. Then the Whole kaboodle will be shoved off the cliff into the river, directly opposite the Tecumseh power plant. l-O..i Several students motored to the Gem Drug Co. for lunch last Friday. After a hearty meal of cokes and paper nap- kins they were given permits by W. N. Van Dyke to go to the ball game. QT? - - - Al "nr ':2.- 'Ti - -..-Lgv. --v - ll A! fini? --1' V.

Thousands upon thousands of Latin students are perishing from acute con- traction of the facial muscles while trying to do as the Romans did. But that is neither here nor somewhere else. The idea is, must there be these needless sacrifices to learning? No! A hundred times, no, and still no! Rather we should become Cannibals than to permit this outrage. Let us abolish Latin from the curriculum, deport it back to Italy. Throw all the text- books into the deep, blue sea.

And so his merry way he goes, His troubles to forget, No difficulties yet- Till finals. BIEKWJHIEEKS 1 1. f , 1 C-l ll i lf you like soul-stirring realism, heart-rendering pathos, humorous dialogue, and tense situations, be sure not to fail to read, "The Ele- vator Boys Around the Block" or i'How Tom ad- vanced from bootblack to ap- ple seller in six months." The author, Horace Algeria, tells the story of his life in the wilds of the Blue Grass regions of Topeka. How he had to work in the fields and till the soil. How he was forced by his cruel father to rise at 4:00 in the morning to milk the hogs and carry slop to the cows, gather the horses' eggs and harness the chickens.

KAW 1:-mis The Kaw club met at a meeting of the Kaw club last evening in the Linken Floorem room. Nothing much was done as there was nothing much to do. However, Bill Scott had the whole group in tears by his spasmodic render- ing of that plaintive old ditty, "The Prisoner's Song." Then Embree Newlee arose and re- cited a tragic poem called "Spring" The audience did. 1.-0,.. spent the first nineteen years of his life attending a grade school at Menoken, Kan. He had to walk forty-two blocks through the snow and sleet to a drug store for his lunch. To really understand the gripping fight put up by this small, dark-complexioned he- man you must read the book for yourselves. It can be pur- chased at Jerkers and Sons Book store for only 55.00. -,...O. Always remember a bird in the hand gathers no moss.-- Aesop, Page 15 1 CT?

In an itemized list given by the coach the interviewer no- ticed that the following had been ordered but not paid for: Vaulting poles, 485 at S2 a doz. High Hurdles, 851 at 35C a carton. Discuses, 1 at 81.89 a bunch. Many of the boys out for track have declined to go out for the manly sport of hurling the biscuits, but nevertheless our famous muscle man has the record for all inter-scholas- tic competition and won the same when he slung that old lead weight two miles and a quarter. Of course, you never hear Mr. McCoy speak of his honor but he never fails to wear the gold plaited snow- shoe that was given him as a prize. Next week our team meets and will defeat the mighty team from Yates Center. The lads from Yates Middle have a Page 152 JUST BETWEEN US SIIILS Did You Know- That- Diana Campbell has dibbs on being the first one to shinny up the flagpole at the new building?

The coach is taking 89,001 men on this trip. The one is Ed Richards, world renowned slinger of the wet towel and sponge. IIEFEHEES THHIIW SIIIES TIJPEKII WIN Silver Lake and Fleahawks Battle Decisively To Tie Until Lone Shot Wins Silver Lake, the seething metropolis of Shawnee county, sent a team of basketball players to play with our Fleahawks. The game was called in the cafeteria at 6:25 a. m. When everybody left, the game was over and the score stood ll to 10. Who won? Well, if you read the rest of this chronicle you will see. To start the festivities Cap- tain Cireely of the Silver Lake Gangsters met Horace Brunt, shining light of the Fleahawks and they tossed a bright new penny to determine who would shoot at what basket. Referee Brunner tossed the ball up, Brunt got the tip, and Dunkel passed to Colvin, who threw the ball at the score- keeper. Colvin then ran into the balcony and escaped. While the chase was on, the two teams each made eight points. The players were refreshed during the half by chile and strawberry ice cream. The second half was a fight from start to finish, with Brunt making a setup on his ninth try and Cilotto of the Gangsters scoring a sloppy field goal. As time went on and neither team was able to score and break the tie, the referee made a free throw, thus bringing the score to ll-10. db Wo A , , , ,-I - - f -, - f ,- - V ' 7 ' 4 ex.
