Tlze Constitution TCDPEHQ-HIGH-SCHOCJL. SU U PLC LUCP1 QDECADES after having won- a prominent position in American history, the traditionally romantic American frigate Constitution+'fOld Ironsides". as it is known to young patriots-holds students of Topeka High School directly under its spell. An actual part of the historic ship, its lower foreyard arm, daily weaves about them its inspiration of strength, high courage, and integrity. Because it is the embodiment of these characteristics, a silent influence each year upon the lives and ideals of more than two thousand students, the good ship Constitu- tion through its member spar will form the theme of this yearbook, the 1934 Sunflower. The spar was obtained for Topeka High School from the United States Navy in 1930 when the ship was being restored, the movement being sponsored by Barton Phelps, June 1901, the Topeka Board of Education, and the Honorable Charles Curtis, then Vice-President of the United States. The former mast arm's eighty feet of pio- neer New England timber was erected in a replica ship- deck framework of steel and wood and was dedicated to its present service before a brilliant assemblage of national leaders and students. Stationed near the entrance to the school auditorium, the spar flaunts in the winds the colors it fought so valiantly and successfully to protect. Far from the scene of its former glory it pierces the blue Kansas skies, a sen- tinel challenging the spirit of youth. x'i l . l 5HIP'S On Watch .................. The U. S. Constitution ........

Memories of "The Old Building," tales of life at Eighth and Harrison, are not for them. They belong completely to the anew." As sophomores in September, 1931, the present graduating class came to give the recently completed high school the "beauty of occupancy." More intimately than any other class who will ever be graduated from its halls, the class of 1934 belongs to the stately building of which all Topeka is so proud. TOPEKA HIGH SCHOOL i ii l Page Six Messages From 'Sl1ip's Qwners' Ig AM glad to offer my congratu- lations and good wishes to the Class of 1934. My one sentence of advice is, Keep your life's horizon mov- ing back. Schooling for some of you may end with graduation. Your education, if you are to amount to anything, has only be- gun. With new learning, your hori- zon widens: you are able to see more beauty in the world, to find greater happiness, to do greater ser- vice. If you wish to live a worth- while life, keep your life's horizon moving back. A. J. STOUT, Superintendent of Schools. TOPEKA BOARD OF EDUCATION James A. McClure J. W. F. Hughes, President Chester Woodward Mrs. D. L. McEachrnn John F. Scott Mrs. Julia Kiene A. J. Stout, Superintendent of Schools cg AM proud of the Public Schools of Topeka. This feel- ing of pride is not limited to the physical appearance of the build- ings, grounds, and equipment, but extends to comprehend the indis- putably fine achievements of the student body which, in turn, re- flect credit upon our teachers and officers of administration. J. W. F. HUGHES, President Board of Education. Page Seven- Sl1ip's Cfficers at Helm W. N. Yan Slyck CZQQILLARD N. van siyck. the captain of our mighty ship, has successfully steered his 2300 passengers through the calms and storms of another school year, thereby completing his sixth voy- age as principal of Topeka High School. Mr. Van Slyck has many duties besides that of commanding the fortunes of the school. He is di- rector of secondary education in the city, with the task of coordinating the work of the junior high schools with that of the high school. He takes active part in the boys' di- vision of the Young Men's Chris- tian Association and in the Boy Scout work. This year he has been honored with the office of second vice-president of the department of secondary school principals of the National Educational Association: and early this spring he was named consultant ex officio of the emer- gency committee in education. Besides his numerous other school duties our good captain sponsors the Student Council and the Representative Council, and through his remarkable patience, fairness, and tact receives the co- operation and respect of the entire ship. C. H. Hepworth Vice-Principal A familiar figure on the decks of our ship is C. H. Hepworth, vice- Laura L. Ewing, Dean of Girls Page Eighti Willard N. Van Slyck, Principal principal of day school and direc- tor of night school. From early morning until late at night, Mr. Hepworth is busy with all that concerns the ship's business. He has direct oversight of the boys of the school, issues passes, and assumes the duties of principal when Mr. Van Slyck is away. This genial gentleman is always on deck when there is work to be done and diffi- culties to be smoothed out. A stu- dent or teacher in trouble is sure of quick response from Mr. Hep- worth. Miss Laura L. Ewing Dean of Girls Sailing along at the prow of our good ship, Miss Laura L. Ewing, dean of girls, is an indispensable member of the ship's officers. For two years she has checked per- sonally every program written for Topeka High School's two thou- sand odd passengers, besides giving her sympathetic and clear-seeing advice most generously to all who ask it. The force of her gracious personality is felt not only among the girls, over whom she has super- vision, but throughout the entire ship. C. H. Hepworth, Vice-Principal L L eoclore L. L9Cll0lU6Ilg61'C!t Teacher of Physics Died December 2 8, 1933 C61-IEODORE L. Schowengerdt came to Topeka High School first as a substitute teacher of mathematics and science in 1930-313 but the fol- lowing fall, with the entry of the school into the new building, he joined the faculty as teacher of physics in both day school and night school. He became ill in midwinter of 1932-33, and from that time was able to be in the classroom only at inter- vals. His death occurred December 28, 1933. To his fellow-teachers and students Mr. Schow- engerdt was a loyal friend. Throughout his long illness, his interest in all that concerned Topeka High School kept him in close touch with its busy life. Considerate and patient always, he smoothed the way for pupils who found his subject difficult. Although his stay in the school was brief, all who were fortunate enough to know him will cherish the memory of a sincere and upright gentleman. Page Nine They Keep Voyagers Entertainecl English Department Miss Wolfe, chairman Miss Ansel Miss Fuller Miss Kerr Miss Bixler Miss Grandon Miss Kingsley Miss Davis Miss Hopkins Miss Tomson Miss Fry Miss Webb Miss Hunt, journalism Miss Wheeler, dramatics NGLISH teachers have endeav- ored this year to interest stu- dents in all types of literature and life. They sponsored an essay con- test on the new Central Market: their classes sold tickets for a Masque and Wig Club play, con- tributed material to the Tugboat, a literary "tabloid" edited by the fall term rhetoric class, and sent many entries to the Scholastic con- tests. The freedom of reading classes won a set of books. Indi- vidual students have received hon- ors for book reviews, essays and verse. Language Department Miss Fowler, chairman Latin Mrs. Harner Miss Robertson Miss Collins, chairman modern languages Miss Drake Mrs. Fudge Mrs. Terrill Mr. Greider The language department has carried on its activities this year mainly through its two associa- tions, the Spanish and Latin clubs. Each of these organizations gave a banquet during the spring semes- ter, representative of the customs of the countries. The French Club gave a tea for the French residents of Topeka, and the German Club held several informal social gather- ings. By getting subscriptions, the de- partment obtained a piano for the classical room, in which language club meetings are held, Science Department Miss McElroy, chairman Miss Graeber Mr. Chambers Miss Wilson Miss Wolcott Mr. Dickson Because of increased enrollment in botany and biology, the science department added another mem- ber, Miss Mildred XVilson, to its teaching staff last fall. Interest of Page Ten students in outside work is shown by the three different types of habitats found in the botany and biology classrooms, which are taken care of throughout the year by science students. The Science Club carried on ex- periments at its meetings in con- nection with the study of physics and chemistry. Some of these ex- periments will be repeated at the faculty meeting sponsored by the department next fall. Mathematics Department Miss Stewart, chairman Miss Austin Mrs. Kingman Mr. Seaman Miss Boyles Miss Oman Mr. Snyder Miss Calvert Miss Wilson Although the subjects included in the mathematics department are elective, in proportion to its size Topeka H i g h S c h o o l has a larger enrollment in mathematics than has any other high school in Kansas. T Work of cer- Y tain mathematics students was exhibited at the State Teachers' meeting last fall. At the March faculty meeting, math pu- pils presented a play and discussed phases of mathematics. Nina McLatche As Miss Nina McLatchey has been on leave of absence this year, her place has been taken by Miss Iva Oman. Commercial Department Mr. McCoy, chairman Mr. Fink Miss McCauley Mr. Shotwe-ll Mr. Lund Mr. Seaman Mr. Dice Two years ago the commercial department of Topeka High School had an enrollment of 7753 the present enrollment is 1264, an in- crease of 73 per cent. Each term many students have to be denied typewriting because there is not sufficient equipment to care for them. Some of the commercial . by Ray Crooks teachers are teaching six classes a day in order to meet more of the demand. Five subjects are included in the department: Stenography, type- writing, bookkeeping, commercial law, and office practice. Mr. Shotwell's picture does not appear in this Sunflower. Social Studies Department Miss Frizell, chairman Miss Bishop Miss 0'Meara Miss Davis Miss A. Pringle Mr. Greider Miss R. Pringle Mr. Dice Miss Swenson Miss Boughton Mr. Mayer Miss Hulse Mr. Hadley Mr. Kaho The social studies curriculum was enlarged this spring by the ad- dition of sociology. Classes have not taken part in group contests, though two students took the ex- amination on the League of Na- tions and the eight Summerfield contestants received extensive drill from the history teachers. The de- partment presented a number of its outstanding students in a fac- ulty meeting in November, show- ing the purpose of each term of social study. , industrial Arts and Home Economics Departments Miss Tucker. chairman home economics Miss McMi11en Miss Woodworth Mr. Winter, chairman industrial arts Mr. Hoehner Mr. Hays Mr. Chamness Mr. Powers The home economics department has the largest enrollment it has had in many years. In its curricu- lum are included foods, home man- agement, home nursing, home dec- oration, and child care. There are also two special classes-hospi- tality, for girls, and homecrafts, for boys. Possessing some of the best equipment in the state, the classes in the industrial arts department are increasing in enrollment. Two full- time teachers have been added since the new building has been occu- pied. Students of the department have received prizes at the Kansas Free Fair. Carmie S. Wolfe Nellie M.

During the year public concerts were given by the band and the orchestra, and the various ensembles made many ap- pearances at private and civic gath- erings. The latter part of the year has been spent in preparation for the state and national music con- tests. The art department won first place in the state at the Kansas Free Fair, and individual students have won prizes for posters. The depart- ment is called upon to further in- numerable school activities. Physical Education Department Miss R'eed Mr. Barnett Miss I-Iosmer Mr. Weaver Opportunity for participation in athletic events is afforded the entire school by the physical education department. For the boys there have been intramural football, bas- ketball, tennis, baseball, and track. For the girls were offered volley ball, basketball, and tennis. A spe- cial course in horseback riding was started this winter, with both girls and women members of the faculty enrolled. Work for the Girls' Ath- letic Association and participation in the pep clubs has been fostered among girls of all three classes. The Study Halls and Library Miss Boughton Mrs. Fudge Miss True Miss Crawford, librarian Miss Elliott Miss Sage Miss Green Miss Weisser Two study hall directors were added during the year - Miss Emma Sage and Miss Esther Weis- ser. This was necessary because of the increased enrollment in the spring term. The library staff also was increased by another assistant, when Miss Helen Green changed at mid-term from study hall duty to the library. Many students aid in the work of the library. Page Twelve Belle R. Snyder The C Miss Snyder, director With a staff Josephine Lindsley afeterla Miss Lindsley, cashier of 28 men and women helpers and 38 student workers, Miss Belle R. Snyder and Miss Josephine Lindsley, assisted by Mrs. Mabel Dunham, are hostesses each noon to the majority of Topeka High School's enroll- ment. In addition they serve many groups connected with the school at luncheons and banquets. Approximately 450 to 500 stu- dents are served in each of the three thirty-five minute periods. The last ten minutes students are priv- ileged to leave the cafeteria and go into the corridors and out-of- doors. The School Nurse Miss Beal Attending to the ills of several dozen of the 2,000 students daily, Miss E. Fredericka Beal maintains an office noted for its friendly'min- istrations. The famous "pepper- mint water" remedy, however, has cured many a student who pre- ferred being ill for an hour to tak- ing a test. A corps of special proc- tors receive valuable training in the office. The Office Force Miss Edson Miss McMurtrie Miss Senft Q Though the office force was de- creased this year from four to three, the secretaries have kept school routine unchanged. While the three share many duties, Miss Carolyn Edson has charge of the attendance and the telephone ex- change: Miss Janet McMurtrie of the desk and school finances: and Miss Bertha Senft of records and transcripts. Miss Leonette Breihan, whose picture does not appear, is night school secretary. Matrons and Custociians Mrs. Zane, matron Mrs. Heleker, matron Howard Fichtner, head custodian Richard Harvey Forrest Rice Marvin Gardner George Challacombe Gilman Brotherton Victor I. Wiel J. A. Taylor Lloyd Streeter, night engineer Garter Mann, engineer To care for the general welfare of the girls of the school is the task of Mrs. Zane and Mrs. Heleker, Mrs. Elizabeth Zane Mrs. H. L. Heleker matrons. Mrs. Zane has the care of the offices and rest rooms. Mrs. Heleker has a full-time occupation in the girls' gymnasium, Where al- most a thousand girls come daily. It takes the steady efforts of nine men to keep Topeka high school clean, sanitary, warm, ventilated, and safe: and this number is in- creased by student helpers required for Saturday and after school work. Students and teachers receive from the custodians accommodating ser- vices of every kind. Visitors com- ment upon the pride these men who act as their guides take in all that pertains to the welfare of the school. CUSTODIANS First Row: Brotherton, Challacombe, Rice-, Weil, Streeter.

Fredrlcka Beal Plea Thirteen CZQQITH old friends meeting again, sophomores getting lost, teachers smiling benignly, and enrollment proceeding full speed ahead, the new year begins at To- peka High School, September ll. 1933. There is excitement everywhere . . . . laughter, small talk, and con- fusion in the halls and classrooms. The vortex of work and commo- tion is found in the office of Miss Laura L. Ewing, dean of girls. Taking almost full charge of en- rollment this year, Miss Ewing and her assistants work early and late, tirelessly answering questions, changing schedules, filing cards, and: all in all, being responsible for things they should be responsi- ble for and taking the blame for other things they cannot help. Ser- vice Club members prove errand boys and invaluable helpers. Remarkable efficiency, coupled with a sweetness and friendliness of Miss Ewing at Work disposition, characterize Miss Ewing, our dean, whom we are proud to call our own. With each succeeding year, her position be- comes one of increased responsi- bility. Her understanding is limit- less, or she could not put up with us. Seniors Blase: Juniors Jubilant After their three-month period of silence and rest, the spacious halls of Topeka High School again echo Pulte Fourteen And Another Year Begins infectious Gayety Enlivens Halls As 2100 Troop in For Opening Days to the excited, youthful voices of the swarming, hungry multitude of two thousand odd. Through great doors they come-the confident seniors to go through the "ordeal of enrollment" for the last time Cthey hopej ..... the carefree juniors who have so many plans for the year Calmost every girl counting on the lead in the Junior play, and every boy seeing a chance to make the first team of something-or- otherj ..... the sophomores fthe dearsj about to explore, discover, demand, and absorb their first breath of the atmosphere that is soon to become a part of their everyday life for three years. That "So-and-so didn't go to Florida fgot that tan at Gage'sj . . . . . that there are only nine months of this ahead of us ..... that it's swell to see you again . . ." just typical first day remarks, heard in the group meetings-not mean- ing classes! Sad World for Sophomores Sometimes it's a pretty sad world for the new sophie. "Why do those upperclassmen look so funny when asked a few simple questions?" they wonder. "How do you get to be an editor of The World, or a Trojan- ette?" "Why don't all the kids get to use the elevator?" "How do you know which lunch line to choose?" "Do seniors cultivate stiff necks or poor memories-or both?" and so on. But they learn-ah, yes, they learn all too soon, and then the seniors' fun is over! And at this time of the year, hopes and expectations run high. Many are making resolutions .... this year is going to be different, that's all ..... Mr. Van Slyck ex- pects a "better-than-ever" student body this year, one that won't by Annabel Putney cough in assemblies, one that won't cut classes or eat lunch at the Gem, one that will go out into the world to set high standards and ideals Cprobably live in Topeka and work for the Santa Fej ...... Sophomores expect a good angel to pick them up and make them popu- lar overnight, and Topeka High to be even better than dear old Roose- velt or Holliday, etc ...... Mr. Mayer expects at least fifty to en- roll in the "Art of Debate" . . . . . Mr. Lawson expects an orchestra playing like little Beethovens or Kreislers in at least eleven public performances ..... . . and Miss Wheeler has a plan in the back of her mind to produce "Hamlet" with Bill Brownlee in the lead! Summer Memories Help In view of the fact that approxi- mately seventy pupils visited the World's Fair this summer, these seventy are hopeful for plenty of inspiration for themes during the year. Many others caught glimpses of Colorado, California, and Law- rence, Kansas, before returning to take up the daily routine of sleep- ing, eating, studying at dear old Topeka High. Some of them en- roll in too much chemistry, math, and history, and have to drop something after the first two weeks. There is really only one thing a good many "six-year seniors" are sure of-that is seventh hour at Edelblute's! Everyone is eagerly awaiting the Sunlights, the election, the Masque and Wig play, and other events to take place in the near future. Yes, the new year has begun. No one knows the outcome. But, in the words of one assembly speaker, "with this beautiful building, this splendid student body, etc."- well, surely we'1l live up to it all.

GIRL RESERVE LITTLE CABINET Book Exchange Busy Pity the embarassed sophomore who turns up at the Hi-Y Book EX- change asking for a locker! He soon finds out that the mob of people around the exchange are after books, not locks. The Hi-Y Club, sponsored by Carl P. Snyder, operates the Hi-Y Book Exchange. This department proves invaluable to students at the beginning of the year, when last year's books may be traded in, plus a little extra inimost cases. Upon careful examination, many discover that their newly acquired book once belonged to older brothers or sisters when they were in high school three or four terms ago. Little Sisters Lucky Under the capable leadership of its president, John Murrow, Qyes, of course,-one of the Murrowslj the Hi-Y Club maintains a digni- fied reputation for service. These boys have only one worry-they can't let the Girl Reserves beat them, you know. So these two clubs start the year with many plans for parties, service, and pro- grams. But they both demand some joint meetings so that they can keep tab on one another. The Girl Reserves prove them- selves helpful "big sisters". They adopt new sophomores as little sis- ters and help them get around. Many a proud junior or senior generously introduces little "Mary Jones" fwho was very popular at Crane or Boswellj to her teachers and girl friends. She doesn't risk introducing little Mary to her boy friends, for these "sub-scrubs" get better looking each year! Supper Boosts Roll The club starts with the Little Sister party as its first social event. Girls . . girls . . . girls . . . . Girls dancing together .... girls talking .... girls eating ice cream cones. With two little sisters for each big sister and one piano play- ing faintly over in a corner of the music room, the girls try to dance. Half of the time they don't know whom they're dancing with and when they do, neither girl can lead! But it's all in fun and one way of making the sophomores feel a little more at home. Later in the year, the Girl Re- serves and the Hi-Y combine in holding a good old-fashioned box- social. There are so many Girl Re- serves that only the Big Cabinet can be invited to go with the entire Hi-Y Club. fEven then, several boys join at 6 o'clock that evening and are welcomed to the partyj Dressed in ginghams and hair-rib- bons and in overalls, the "kiddies" have a lovely time. Of course, the boys aren't rich enough to really pay money for the boxes, so- they are provided with beans. Anyway, it is more flattering to the girls to have their boxes sold for, say forty beans, than six cents. "Grandma" Hosmer is there, acting as chaperon while the kiddies dance the Vir- ginia Reel. - Thus, mixing the gay with the serious, these clubs provide a worth-while year for many. The Girl Reserves, under the fine leader- ship of Miss Berenice Fuller and Miss Florence H. Warner, Girl Re- serve secretary, perform many ser- vices during the year. They have served at teas and entertained at a children's Christmas party, given at the Y. W. C. A. Mr. Snyder and Leo Gessell, boys' work secretary, sponsor of the Hi-Y, also provide similar work for their organiza- tion.

The stu- dents rose nobly to the occasion and turned out en masse to register, A - - - inscribing a total Helen Bushacher O f more t h 3 n 1600 names in the books for their respective classes. A cursory glance at the election books proved that there were several hundred students who were a bit hazy as to whether they were sophomores, juniors, or seniors: but with a large expendi- ture of time and effort, the names were duly tabulated and the elec- tion board was ready for the pre- liminary fray, i . e., the primaries. A noble deed was done for the school when the office practice class de- ciphered the names of the register- ites and bound them in book form for future reference. In former elections there have been several offices that were un- Plze Sixteen Young Topekans Try Voting With Petitions, Primaries, Polls Students Elect Cflicers for Year contested, but such was not the case this year. A total of eighty students ran for office, and seeing that misery loves company, the 59 defeated candidates could not pos- sibly have been lonesome. The elections ran close in several offices. giving a decidedly political air to the affair. Another unusual aspect of the election was that in two out of every three cases, the candidate won whose name appeared first on the ballot. Proving something or other... . . . Eight Have Tray Meals As has been the custom for the last two years, an election board of eight members was chosen from the constitution classes upon recom- mendation of the teachers, Those serving this year were Harriet Black, Eugene Anderson, Frances Replogle, Wayne Carlson, Meade Harris, Peggy Paine, Helen Cmriffee, and Hobart Johnson. The only thing they got out of it was two meals served to them on trays and a legitimate excuse for not having their lessons for the two days. That may sound pretty good, but the catch is that they had to make up their back assignments. The final election garnered a to- tal of 1301 votes. Only nine of the 21 successful candidates were boys, while 39 of the 60 candi- dates in the primaries were boys, showing that they only stand 279 chances in 819 of winning, believe it or not. Phyllis 'McPherson Barbara Mansfield by Betty Lou Ufford "Ladies Second" in This Election All the class presidents were boys and all the vice-presidents girls. The girls further asserted their rights by pocketing all the social committee offices. The Student Council in each case had one boy and one girl. The students were fortunate in their choice of officers, because most of them, excepting, of course, the sophomores, had served in an official capacity be- fore. Bill Brownlee, president of the Student Council, was an alter- nate last year, as well as president of his class. Vernon Murrow, run- ner-up for the Student Council presidency, won the position of Chairman of the Proctor System. Vernon was experienced in this work, having been a proctor chair- man in his junior year, as well as co-captain with Bill until the time of the election, when both ran for president of the Council, As further evidence that the stu- dent body knew their business when they nominated officers, Rudy Petereck as president and Charles Bray as a member of the Student Council had previously served in the offices of president of the sophomore class and vice-presi- dent respectively. The vice-presi- dent of the junior class, Jean Swan, was secretary of her class in her sophomore year, and Julia Ann Duff, a Council member, was the chairman of the social committee. No novices for these juniors! Har- ryette Nightingale, senior Student Council member, and Dorothy Jane Willcuts, senior vice-presi- dent, were Student Council mem- bers in their junior year. The elec- tion of previous office-holders shows students' appreciation of the services given by their leaders. Sophomores Use Sleuth Tactics The voting places this year were the Classical room, the Visual Seated: Coats, Wellman, Nightingale, Brownlee, Mr. Van Slyck, ad- Instruction room, and the Activity room. After con- siderable dither- ing, the sopho- mores found the "Visual Instruction room" and proceeded to do their duty by their school. - . A strange and significant fact may be seen in the election returns. for statistics prove that 508 sopho- mores, 413 juniors, and only 383 seniors used their franchise priv- ileges. Interest obviously is in in- verse ratio to intellect. No offense, sophomores! Bill Brownlee The Student Council Bill Brownlee, president Harryette Nightingale, vice-president Jean Wellman, secretary-treasurer Charles Bray Helen Beth Coats Barton Phelps Carl Stanley In the Student Council are vested the powers of representing student opinion in the discussion of school problems and of acting as an advisory board to the principal. Members also promote the various activities of the school and further law and order among the students. There are no requirements for membership except in the office of the president, who must have served either as an alternate or an elected member. A new group of six alternates-two for each class-is chosen every nine weeks. The Council also includes three ex- officio members who have the visorg Brown, Dice, Abrahams, Bra-y.

The Representative Council Meade Harris, president Harold Weeks, vice-president Bob Boyle, secretary-treasurer Charles Bray. head safety council Members of the Representative Council are chosen in the home rooms at the beginning of the school year. This system has been in use since the advent of our worthy activity ticket, which has necessitated considerable Worry and marked ability in high finance on the part of the representative. This Council is largely responsible for the balanced or unbalanced budget at the end of the school year, for REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL its members must be able to chisel, cajole, threaten, wheedle, and beg for the students' money to pay for their activity tickets, Worlds, and other school activities involving the all-important currency. Meade Harris was chosen to head this group for 1933-34. Be- ing well versed in the idiosyncra- cies of council members, he man- ages to get a maximum of work and suggestions out of the members with a minimum of perspiration and coercion. The Safety Council was created as a part of the Repre- sentative Council at the last of the term of the 1932-33 school year to take care of the traffic problems in and around Topeka high, and to cooperate with the police in the so- lution of their common problems. The Service Club John B. Covey, president Harold Weeks, first vice-president Dorothy Jane Willcuts, second vice-president Harryette Nightingale, secretary Barbara King, Publicity chairman With his selection as president of the Service club, John B. Covey took unto himself divers duties and responsibilities. Not the least among these duties is leading the meetings held in the cold gray dawn at 7:30 o'clock. With his cohorts, John helps with the enrollment cards, grade slips, ticket-taking, ushering, and all other unpleasant work around the school.

Vernon is the third student to take over this posi- tion of trust and criticism since the system was inaugurated with the new building.

Covey Student Groups Work At the opening of each term, the Service Club helps in the office by sorting cards, delivering messages, and easing the burden of detail that slows up the work of the harassed office force. The proctors similarly begin their work early, recruiting aides from the study halls to regulate hall traffic. Effort is made to keep the organization representative of all interests. This year for the first time Negro proctors were appoint- ed. The Student Council's first big project each year is the All-School Party. It then turns its attention to such matters as the Point System and election rules. During the vo- cational lectures, its members meet and introduce the speakers. The Representative Council, be- sides caring for the activity tickets, World subscriptions, and Sunflow- er sales, this year has Worked es- pecially on the entertainment of de- baters attending the National Speech Tournament. 5 TARTING the 1933 seas- on as an inex- perienced squad. but rapidly devel- oping i n t o a powerful eleven. the Topeka high i school football team turned in a formidable record of five victories and two defeats. The Trojans tied with Lawrence for the title of the Eastern Kansas Conference and upset two strong non-league opponents. The To- peka team scored in every game and collected during the seven games a total of 97 points as com- pared with the 40 points gathered by their opponents. Their schedule, arranged by W. J. Barnett, athlet- ic director, included the stiffest competition possible in this part of the country. Nearly 100 candidates reported in early September for training under Coach E. B. Weaver and his assistants. C. F. Hadley, Fred R. Powers, C. P. Snyder, and H. D. Shotwell. These coaches drilled the aspirants long and hard for the en- tire month in preparation for the season opener, September 30. Sev- eral promising combinations were tried, each centered around the three r e t u r n i n g lettermen-George Shoup, end: Junior Shaw, full- backg and Norman French, half- back. Only minutes before the game started was the starting line- up anything but a guess. W. J. Barnett Athletic Director Salina-Topeka The opening game was played in Topeka. with Salina as opposi- tion. Although displaying ragged form, both teams managed to score. Rosenbaum played a good defensive game for Topeka. Salina won by one touchdown. Score: Salina 13, Topeka 7 Griclsters Tie for Title Green Team Develops into Powerful Machine: Wins Five of Seven Games Lawrence-Topeka In the next game Lawrence won a tight battle on its home field. Shaw and French gave the stands thrill after thrill with their beau- tiful runs. The field lights went out in the last few minutes of play and ended the game abruptly. Score: Lawrence 7, Topeka 6 Topeka-Manhattan Topeka snapped out of the pre- season slump and started a winning streak that went unbroken during the remainder of the season. Man- hattan, Topeka's traditional foe, fell before a strong Trojan attack in an afternoon game. Score: Manhattan 6, Topeka 26 Topeka-Emporia The league-leading Emporians met their first defeat at the hands of the Trojans in Topeka. Kinter starred for the visitors, and Brown and Long played a great defensive game for Topeka. Score: Emporia 7, Topeka 13 Topeka-Omaha For the third consecutive year Topeka upset the powerful Ma- roon Omaha Tech gridsters. Shaw made the only touchdown of the game, and French converted the extra point. All the boys had a fine time in Omaha. Score: Omaha Tech O, Topeka 7 by James Clark Topeka-Ottawa Topeka finished a lop-sided game with Ottawa on the long end of the score. Fumbles by the Tro- jans marred their brilliant show- ing. Score: Ottawa 0, Topeka 26 Topeka-Wichita East The Black and Gold evened the defeat of last year's team by turn- ing back the strong Wichita-East Aviators in a close game. Beckley and Lillard scorred for Topeka. Score: Wichita-East 7, Topeka 12 Eight Lettermen Seniors The Wichita game was the last game for the following lettermen: Charles R o s e n b a u m, George Shoup, Dick Brown, Ivan Lawson, James Kell, Norman French, Mil- ton Long, and Junior Shaw. Seven of Topeka's Trojans re- ceived an all East-Central Kansas Conference rating. Long, Shaw, Shoup, and Brown placed on the first team, and Rosenbaum, Law- son, and French placed on the sec- ond, French was made captain of the second team. Student Manager Aids Largely responsible f o r t h e smooth functioning of the season, Bill Brownlee as senior student manager of football served daily at the club house at Chandler Field and made all trips with the team.

Dean Pressler is a short, fast well-built, and smart quarterback. Although he did not get to play in many games. he made good whenever called upon. He had a lot of drive and his speed aided him in doing his share. new Hin, Emi-150 lbs. Dean was a good pass snagger. He was fast on the forward line, and on defense. stopped play with great success. Com- bining fighting with excellent knowledge of the game. Dean overcame the handicap of light weight and played an excellent game. Stanley Orr, Tackle-210 lbs. While not always in the starting line- up, Stanley lost little time in showing his ability and making his weight "felt", after breaking into the conflict. He was a most capable reserve. Stanley will he one of the returning lettermen. Lloyd Nitz, Halfback-155 lbs. A smart, speedy, and deceptive back. "The speed man of the backfieldf' Lloyd could always be counted on for consistent gains. He was the main cog in many of the successful trick plays. Lloyd will return to play next fall. Brown French Richard Brown, Tackle-180 lbs. "Dick" won a reputation as one of the hardest, cleanest fighting. most versatile tackles in state high school athletics. He was always in there fighting. Breaking through to throw opposing backs for de- cisive losses was his favorite pastime. ' Norman French, Halfback-150 lbs. Norman always gave a good account of himself in running back punts. He was one of the speediest men in the backfield. On end runs he often broke away for long gains or touchtowns. "Norm" was a let- terman from the 1932 season. Charles Cramer, Guard-160 lbs. Short. stocky, fast. and smart-Charles filled all requirements for an ideal guard. His speed enabled him to break through the opposing line and throw runners for losses. He always made holes in the line for the ball lugger. Kenneth Colvin, Tackle--205 lbs. Whenever a play came his way Kenneth was there to mess it up. The 200 pounds of beef he packed around on his frame did not hinder his playing. His weight, speed, and endurance made him a powerful de- fensive tackle. Crarner Colvin n 4 Vernon Lillard, Halfback-160 lbs. Vernon's first year on the squad was most successful, and he probably will be a real threat next year. His deception and open field running baffled opponents. Be- sides being an excellent offense man, he was exceptionally strong on defense. Dave Beckley, Quarterback-137 lbs. "The smallest man on the squad"- that's Dave, and one of the mightiest. A consistent ground gainer, he pulled the Wichita game out of the fire by scoring the touchdown that ended a sustained 60- yard drive by Topeka. George Shoup, End-175 lbs. A two-letter man and a smart defensive end, George was valuable on defense, and his speed getting down under punts kept the opposing safeties worried. The strong point in George's defensive play was his uncanny ability to bat down passes. Charles Kushera, Halfback-155 lbs. Kushera was one of five underclassmen to receive a letter this year. Although rather light for the backfield. Charles was an ex- cellent ground gainer, shifty runner, and a good blocker. Charles should be a power for next year. Junior Shaw, Fullback-160 lbs. The mainstay of the team. Junior. 1932 letterman, was always good for "just a couple more." On end runs and smashes through tackle he repeatedly broke away for gains. Junior had a drive remembered by anyone he hit. His defense playing was always exceedingly commendable. Lillard Beckley James Kell, Quarterback-150 lbs. Strategy and uncanny selection of the right play at the right time was Jim's busi- ness. Although it was his first season of play, he ran the team like a veteran. His absence in the line-up will be greatly felt next year. Charles Rosenbaum, End-Halfback- 150 lbs. When Charles came to Topeka from Pratt, Kan.. he became a powerhouse of strength. He played end on defense and halfback on the offense. Placing punts in far corners of the field, he pulled the team out of numerous tight places. Ivan Lawson, Guard-190 lbs. Coach Weax'er had an abundance of good guards this season. Lawson was one of them. taking part in most of the action. Bolstering up the defense, he helped the line repulse attack after attack. Ivan was always down under the punts. Milton Long, Center-205 lbs. "Tiny" was a Trojan mainstay on both offense and defense. His fast, accurate passes were just where the backs needed them to start scoring drives. Tackling hard, he was a threat to opposing backfield stars. He was named All-Conference center. Aaron Sheetz, Guard-190 lbs. A power on defense, Aaron bolstered up the left side of the Trojan forward wall. On offensive line plunges, he invariably made a hole and went on through to take out one of the opponents' backfield. He will be a power next year. Shoup Kushera L Shaw Kell Rosenbaum Lawson Long Sheet: Page Twenty-one OLLOWING a custom established long ago by the sport editors of the Topeka High School World, the Novem- ber 17 edition of The World carried the All-Conference selections for the 1933 sea- son.

The four teams and their captains were Blues, Ralph Pollock: Reds, Warren Gad- dis: Yellows, Frank Oliver: and Greens, Earl Atkins. To be eligible for participa- tion in the games on,'Thursdays and Fri- days, a player had to report for the prac- tice sessions held during the week. The schedule as drawn up by W. J.

The Blue eleven, captained by Pollock, led the league throughout the entire season. and finished the play in first place with a record of three victories, two ties. and one defeat. With a backfield of passing and running strength the Blue set a pace that went unchallenged. Second place went to the Yellow team who had three wins, one tie. and two losses.

This passion for adventure led Ambrose Applejohn, hero of Walter Hackett's comedy- fantasy, "Captain Applejackf' into many hair-raising experiences in one disordered evening. The play, the first production of the school year, was presented October 27 by the Masque and Wig club. Charles Bray played Ambrose Applejohn, who in the second act was bloodthirsty Captain Apple- jack. His delineation of the me- thodical gentleman and the swash- buckling pirate offered fine con- trasts.

I want to marry a girl, and she wants to marry me, but we can't get married because her parents want us to." Thus Tommy explained his sit- uation, and it was around this sit- uation that "Tommy", the Junior class production, was built. The play, a comparatively recent com- edy of manners by Howard Lind- say and Bertrand Roberts, had clever lines and amusing situations which evoked hearty laughter from the audience. It was revived on Broadway last fall for a second run. Lamar Wheat carried the title role, Tommy. His characterizations of the model lover in the first act and his quick change to the ex- asperated and desperate cave-man in the second and third acts were largely responsible for the success of the play. Opposite him, Julia Ann Duff took the part of Marie, the charming young girl with a mind of her own, around whom the love interest centered. Charles Stanley Charles Man speaker. ACT III-"TOMMY" breezed on and off as the self-suf- ficient automobile salesman who was sure that Marie could not re- sist his fiery wooing. The parts of Mr. and Mrs. Thurber, the parents who were de- termined to do the match-making for their daughter, were taken by Charles Manspeaker and Lucy Jane Keilmann. Tommy's effort to win the parents' favor instead of Marie's was evident only to Marie and to her uncle, David Tuttle, the kindly politician, played by Persh Ciilligan. Uncle Dave, smoothing a rosy path for the young couple, almost stole the show. Maurice Reed took the part of the crafty judge, and Cornelia Ann Miller was his wife, Mrs. Wilson. Bill Clark as "Willie" recalled to mind Penrod and other young tor- mentors. The fine setting for the play was made possible by the stagecraft class under J. I-I. Hoehner's direc- tion. Student Stall Labors by Betty Lou Ufford To the laity, the auditorium when a play is incubating is hal- lowed territory, affording a spec- tacle to be witnessed only by the chosen few. At 3:15, all the the- atrical traditions of years arise and tramp the boards of the Topeka high stage, accompanied by screams and gestures from the cast and by suggestions from the staff and di- rectors. Although the staff do not get much out of their work, they con- sider it a privilege and an honor, if for no other reason than the fact that they can "hang around" with- out being forcibly ejected. The student director is the only one of the staff who can tell the actors what he thinks of them and get by with it. He is also accorded the rare privilege of going tempera- mental and being present at all re- hearsals. The business manager takes care of ticket sales. After relatives of the cast are provided with the best seats, box-office problems are practically solved and almost all the tickets sold. To the costume manager goes the job of rustling up dress suits and tuxedos. Isla Bundy had the worst of it this year with nine to be Sherlocked. The property manager has to figure out where to get daggers, candy-boxes, tobacco pouches, pearls, and furniture. Someone with a crazed look is likely at any time to request you to bring a wall or a sofa to school tomorrow. The stage managers are responsi- ble for most of the noise and the beautiful sets. Nothing pleases them more than a play that requires a lot of scene shifting and thunder. The publicity manager's duties are supposed to be purely creative. They consist mainly in writing neat phrases about the cast and try- ing to get the city papers and World to accept them. Nothing need be said for Miss Gertrude Wheeler and J. H. Hoeh- ner, for the consistent success of their productions speaks conclusive- ly of their virtues as coach and stage manager, respectively. Page Twenty-five Nxlell Begun---Not Half Done 1.

The rally was fur- nished by Miss Katherine A. Tuck- er, as sponsor, with Jean Swan, as student manager, doing the bang- ing. Considerable banging by the audience in the form of applause was evident throughout the pro- gram. The first picture that you see smiling so blithely at you from the top of the page is the Snowball Chorus. This chorus was un- usually effective in its presentation of a snow scene. Aided by the Oc- tavians who sang "Snowball," the chorus rolled snowballs all around the stage and gave a convincing dance. Once they even stooped to give the Octavians a volley of fuzzy white balls Cwhich were not made of snow, by the wayb .

Incidentally the trimmings on the girls' costumes were not made of hair from Santa Claus' whiskers. Recent reports lead us to believe that there is no Santa Claus after all. Now move down one space and look to your left. To whom do those distinguished countenances and clothes Qahemj belong? None other than the Topeka high school chain gang who found themselves mopping the floors with the seats of their pants the night of the party.

They really don't appear to be masquerading, do they? It is said, though, that the "man about town" in the center of all those beautiful "wimmen" is trying to cover something up with that big nose of his. He also seems a bit bashful, too, does he not-if hav- ing one arm around Jane Harper and the other around Alida Jane Terrill proves anything? The girls Cwith the exception of Jane Har- per and "our hero"j did a bit of a dance step under red and green lights, followed by a vocal duet "Masquerade," sung by Jane Har- per and Arthur CBingD Wolf. This Masquerade Chorus was probably the most graceful part of the pro- gram, which in its entirety was very graceful indeed. The chorus- ettes each wore a green formal with cellophane collars and cuffs which crinkled and gleamed delightfully with any change of position. The Snowball and Masquerade Chor- uses were both directed and cast by Alida Jane Terrill, who we think deserves a great big hand.

BROWNLEE, elected King of the All-School Party, combines dignity and good fellowship in such a manner that everyone, from the Iowliest sophomore to the loftiest senior, admires him frankly and without envy. He has been active in dramatics, athletics, and student government, attain- ing in his senior year the presidency of the Student Council: All of his responsibilities he has carried to completion with quiet thoroughness. He has the attributes of a true king: under- standing, sincerity, and devotion to his kingdom-Topeka High School.

The honors that have come to Howard heh has carried modestly.

Page Thirty-five ANGING from stamps to aviation, from sewing to drama. Topeka High School's clubs cover a field even broader than that of the school curriculum. Every de- partment has its organization, and every activity is represented by a group that is either preparatory or directly connected with its work. New clubs may be started at any time, if the consent of the Student Council is obtained and a faculty member agrees to act as sponsor. Each Thursday morning during the school year the second hour bulletin carries a list of clubs meet- ing in activity period that day. Most of them are bi-weekly, alter- nating according to a plan worked out by John E. Lund, faculty member in charge of the activity schedule. The schedule is rigidly adhered to, and nothing interferes with the club meetings. The school organizations have helped with the All-School party, and in many instances they have done charitable work or contrib- uted to some worthy project. The student relief fund this year had its largest contribution through the concert sponsored by the Clef Club. The Hi-Y and Girl Re- serves, as well as the pep organiza- tions, collected clothing and food for the needy at Christmas time. The language classes bought a piano for the use of the depart- ment. All in all, the clubs figure largely in the life of the school. .lunior Dramatic Club Charles Manspeaker, president Kenneth Murrow, vice-president Julia Eidson, secretary-treasurer Betty Anderson, chairman program committee Misa Annabel Pringle, sponsor The Junior Dramatic Club is in reality a training ground for the Masque and Wig club, as its main purpose is to prepare students for the school plays. In its meetings, members of the club usually pre- sent two short plays and give one or two readings. Besides this they have charge of the Easter assembly, and usher at all of the plays. To join the Junior Dramatic Club, a candidate must demon- strate his dramatic ability before the sponsor by reading a selection and doing a set pantomime. From Page Thirty-six Club Mirror Many Hobbies Organizations Result of lnterests Fosterecl in Class and Outside Work the list of candidates, the club chooses twenty boys and twenty girls to constitute its membership each fall.

In order to be eligible for the casts of these plays, a student must be a member of the club. The club this year brought a set of ten period chairs to be used on the auditorium stage.

It is a club that has something to show for its ex- istence at the close of the year. With its thirty members, limited to those who have completed Art I and II, it is invaluable to the various publicity departments of the school who would have a hard time if it were not for the posters made for them by the Art Club.

Probably the high point of this year was the opera "Carmen" adapted to suit the needs of the club and given before the Spanish students. Also the annual custom of the Spanish banquet was carried out, with entertainment featuring bull fights, cock fights, and the dancing of the tango.

This year the girls serv- ed at the All School party. A point system is in operation in the club which determines at the end of the year which girl has done the most work. This member is then honored with a pin. Aviation Club Alfred Crouch, president Clif Dollard, vice-president Glen Anderson, treasurer Arthur Wolf, treasurer Fred R.

At present the membership is limited to 60. Booker T Club Kenneth Garrett, president John Ewing, vice-president King Floyd, secretary John Trice, treasurer Sol D. Dice, sponsor In order to meet the needs of colored boys who wish an organi- zation similar to that of the Hi-Y, the Booker T club was formed this fall with a membership of some fifty boys. It is organized much the same as the Hi-Y club and has the same purposes and creeds. At their weekly meetings, the boys discuss racial and social prob- lems, varying their programs with music and plays. Often they have outside speakers as their guests. This year the club has divided into two basketball and two base- ball teams, has sponored several parties, and taken part in a few de- bates. Sol. D. Dice helped with the organization of the club and has continued as its sponsor.

This arrow, already nearing completion at the end of the school year, will be the contribution of the Aviation club of 1933-34. Although the club was organiz- ed only last fall, members hope soon to have a real plane to work and experiment on. Eventually a number expect to learn flying. This year is the first time that girls have taken an interest in avia- tion, for the club's membership in- work, girls of the newly organized Sewing Club this winter have given much time and consideration to outfitting a needy junior high school girl, whose circumstances they knew. Not content with mak- ing her Christmas happy with a good wardrobe, they afterward supplied other needs with clothing brought from home and remod- eled. The girls are privileged in their club to do any sort of sewing they desire. 3111 emnriam Inez LOUiS8 Paynd gNEZ Louise Payne, a member of the I 93 4 class, died on October Z 3 , 1933. Inez was a very conscientious and ambitious student, eager for an education and ever ready to help in any way possible. She was much interested in sports and was an active member of the Dunbar So- ciety and the Phyllis XVheatley Girl Reserves. As one of her teachers said, "I t is a great mystery that one so capable and eager to live and do, should have to pass on in her youth." Grace SIIICISZI' CZQQ I TH a quiet, friendly manner that attracted friendship, Grace Smelser entered Topeka High School two years ago last fall. At Roosevelt Junior High, also, she had been highly esteemed by the teachers and her classmates. - Grace was a junior and just starting her major course in science. She was especially fond of cooking and had taken all four terms. However, she did not confine all of her time indoors. She liked nothing better than brisk hiking or participating in some sport. She had been a member of the First Christian Church for some years. I She died November 19, 1933. Page Forty-three Juniors Play Host at Prom Topeka High Scene of .lollilication At Season's Annua Formal Affair By Virginia Brown Rudy Peterick Jean Swan Julia Ann Duff Billye June Abernathy Junior Officers Rudy Peter-ick, president Jean Swan, vice-president Julia Ann Duff, secretary-treasurer Billye June Abernathy, ch. soc. comm. Helen Beth Coats, Charles Bray, Student Council representatives HE school first became acute- ly aware that a new Junior class had come into being last Oc- tober, when the primary election was held. The results proved that the Juniors had nominated with discretion, and the candidates were so evenly matched that the win- ners nosed out their victory. Juniors again came into public notice with the Junior play. "Tommy". The money made from the play was put toward the Junior-Senior Prom. The Prom. of course, marked the climax of the year for the Juniors. It occurred Friday eve- ning, April 20-an upperclass- man's function to which no sopho- mores were invited. Weeks of prep- aration went into the success of this party. The group of committee chair- men and committee members who worked on the Prom follows: Billye June Abernathy-Social Chairman. Program-Martha Jane Lepper, chairman: Charles Atwell. Bill Woodward. Decoration-Bettie Rae Kiene, chairman: Jane Riach. Invitations-Betty Bond, chairman: Martha Grandeen, Margaret Grandeen. Tickets-Rudy Petereck, chairman: Jack Graves, Bill Clark. Orchestra-Lott Kilmer, chairman 3 Don McEnt,ire. Jean Swan. Refreshments-Phyllis McPherson, chair- mang Bil-l Howe, Jane Thompson. Recreation-Bettie Rae Kiene, chairmang Jane Riach, Persh Gilligan. Checking'--Lloyd Norman, Kenneth Lewis. Clean-up-Charles Rankin. The Prom program was staged in the auditorium on a stage trans- formed by a sea setting. Robert Helen Beth Coats Charles Bray Wolfe was the author of the musi- cal comedy, "All's Wet That Ends Wet." Juniors having the leads were Jackie Burton, Isla Bundy, Charles Bray, Enid Clark, John Cresap, Charles Stanley, and Ar- thur Wolf. The success of the Prom, as well as of other Junior enterprises, was due in great part to the work of the sponsors. With Miss Annette Webb as chairman, the group of sponsors included Miss Maude Bishop, Miss Margarett Graeber, Miss Florence Drake, Miss Evelyn Fulton, and Miss Webb. The last important event in which the Juniors will take part is the daisy chain at commencement. At that time the pastel shades of the girls' frocks will make a per- fect background for the dark gray caps and gowns of the Seniors. Junior boys usher at commence- ment.

Page Fifty-one Win Recleems Losing Streak .af kg, '. i' " - Harlan Schlicher Basketball Captain An alumni contest opened the 1933-34 basketball season, Decem- ber ZZ, with the graduates taking the long end. The Trojans, led by Corlis, showed scoring ability, but the defense was ragged. The next two games went to the Trojans, as St. Joe Central and Lawrence fell before a rapidly developing com- bination. The following week brought disaster, for the Emporians swept into the league lead that they held through the remainder of the schedule. Lawson and Schlicher, Trojan guards, kept the score rea- sonably close by their skill in blocking plays. Topeka came back strong after this beating and won four games straight. The victims were Ottawa, St. Joe Central, Salina, and Ot- tawa again. The Ottawa games were the only conference contests. The Salina game opened the sec- ond semester's competition and brought the addition of Renker, Owens, and Sanneman, a letter- man, to the team. Topeka was defeated February 3 by the Bulldogs at Wyandotte in spite of a final period rally that Page Fifty-two Long-Delayed Victory over Emporia Makes 1934 Court Season Successful brought the Trojans within a few points of victory. The following week-end they defeated Manhattan and Lawrence, setting the confer- ence title as the stake of the Em- poria-Topeka game a week later. The Emporia game opened one of the most disastrous periods in Topeka high's basketball annals. The five remaining games on the regular schedule all ended in Tro- jan defeats. W. J. Barnett, ath- letic director, who has always ob- tained the best competition avail- able for the Topekans, had sched- uled games with Emporia, Newton, Wichita North, Manhattan, and Wyandotte, on three successive week-ends. It was one of the tough- est three weeks of competition ever scheduled for any one team in the state. The loss to Emporia shattered the title hopes of the Topekans, while the Newton trouncing point- ed out the opposition to be met at the state basketball tourney. The Topekans strengthened for their next two games and were beaten by Wichita North and Manhattan only in the concluding minutes. After a Violent attempt to hold the Bulldogs, the Trojans were swept away and became the forty-third consecutive victims of the Wyan- dotte team. A week later the Trojans shook off their losing streak and captured the district tournament champion- ship at Emporia. After an easy vic- tory from Eureka, the Topekans, meeting Emporia for the third time in the season, upset their rivals to win their way to the state tourna- ment. The record of the first team is as follows: Dec. 22 Topeka Alumni 29 Topeka St. Joe Central Jan. 5 Topeka Lawrence - 12 Topeka Emporia 13 Topeka Ottawa , By Harold Weeks 20 Topeka 30 St. Joe Central 14 27 Topeka 30 Salina 15 Feb. 2 Topeka 27 Ottawa 19 3 Topeka 21 Wyandotte 26 9 Topeka 30 Manhattan 24 10 Topeka 28 Lawrence 21 16 Topeka 21 Emporia 29 17 Topeka 18 Newton 42 24 Topeka 12 Wichita North 14 Mar. 2 Topeka 22 Manhattan 24 3 Topeka 14 Wyandotte 30 Regional tourney.

E. A. Thomas, secretary of the State High School Athletic Association, was the director of the tourney. The teams entered were Abilene, Belleville, Chanute, Dodge City, Emporia, Hutchinson, Leavenworth, Newton, Norton, Parsons, Pittsburg, Sabetha, Sa- lina, Topeka, Wichita East, and Wyandotte. The tournament featured many upsets, such as Hutchinson's vic- tory over Wyandotte to end the latter's string of victories at 48, Emporia's surprising win from the Newton five, and Wichita East's upset in defeating Hutchinson. In the finals Emporia won from Wichita East, capturing the state title. Hutchinson defeated Newton to take third place, while Leaven- worth won from Salina to lead the consolation bracket. Topeka lost out in the second round to Wichita East. The Tro- jans had previously routed the Abilene quintet. The Topeka team tied for sec- ond place in the Eastern Central Kansas Conference with Manhat- tall. Harlan Sclrlicher-Guard-Senior Height-6 ft. 2 in. Weight-173 lb. Dependable and consistent in both of- fensive and defensive guard play. Harlan was the backbone of the 1934 team. He was chosen captain for his ability to check- mate an opponent's offensive and for his leadership on the floor. He lettered twice in basketball. Norman Sanneman-Center-Senior Height-6 ft. Weight-155 lb. Returning at mid-semester for his sec- ond season of competition. Norman's jumping ability and experience at the pivot dominated many a game. Although handi- capped by a wrenched back throughout the schedule, he did splendid work. Junior Shaw-Forward-Senior Height-5 ft. 8 in. Weight-166 lb. Junior made up for his lack of height by gameness that handicapped many a taller opponent. Besides being a regular starter in the forward berth, he was one of the team's leading scorers. This was .Iunior's first year on the varsity, and he is lost through graduation. Ivan Lawson-Guard-Senior Height-6 ft. 2 in. Weight-177 lb. One of the foremost intramural stars. Ivan survived the pre-season cuts and soon became a regular. His height and power- ful build were the keys to his success as a guard. His skill in batting down passes and shots was a decided asset to the team. Lyman Corlis-Forward-Junior Height-6 ft. l in. Weight-162 lb. Lyman secured a forward position early in the season through his ability to hit the Corlis Trenery l basket. He struck several slumps in scor- ing, but by developing an aggressive style of play he remained an important cog. He promises to be a leader of the 1935 quin- ret. Junior Florell-Center-Junior Height-6 ff. 2 Vin. Weight-161 lb. Junior possesses the long arms and legs requisite for a center. A regular from the opening game, he has developed more rap- idly than any of his team mates: next year should bring one of the best ratings in the state to this pivot. Frank Trenery-Forward-Junior Height--6 ft. Weight-164 lb. Completing his second year of varsity competition. Frank is the only player to letter as a sophomore. Although this year he did not display the same skill at for- ward for which he was chosen as a sopho- more, he remains a foundation man for next year's five. ' Bob Owen-Guard-Senior Height-6 fr. Weight-148 lb. Though slight of build, Bob through his aggressive style of defensive broke up both passes and plays. He became eligible at mid-semester and soon earned a regular guard position by his stellar performance. Fred Renker-Forward-Senior Height-5 ft. ll in. Weight-145 lb. Joining the team at the opening of the spring semester. Fred won a regular for- ward position by his scoring streak late in the season. Smooth and cooperative style, besides a high scoring ability. made Fred eligible for varsity play and a letter. Owen Florell 1 f Schlicher Renksr Lawson Shaw Page Fifty-phhfee The Second Squad NDERCLASSMEN who did not survive the first squad cuts were given experience in Tro- jan court play and inter-school competition under Assistant Coach C. H. Hadley. Meeting for training at alternating times with the first squad, the Seconds drilled on the Trojan offensive and defensive tac- tics. From time to time the more promising boys were added to the first string. Second team games were played on the home court after the varsity games. When an opponent could not be obtained, the squad was divided for the game. The Seconds also had several out-of-town games, the most nota- ble being a victory over the Wyan- dotte Seconds. Some of the more outstanding second team members who will return next year are Harry Bartlett, Harold Gladfelter, forwards: Raymond Agard, cen- ter: and George Landes, Vernon Lillard, Phil Daneke, Bill Dawson, guards. The record of the second team is as follows: Jan. 5 Topeka 18 Lawrence 21 18 Topeka 22 Ottawa 17 14 Topeka 15 Emporia 81 Feb. 2 Topeka 16 Ottawa 19 8 Topeka 27 Wyandotte 14 10 Topeka 20 Lawrence 23 16 Topeka 23 Emporia 25 Mar. 1 Topeka 24 Michigan Valley 12 2 Topeka 20 Manhattan 7 3 Topeka 19 Wyandotte 21 Intramural Play Opening November 12 and con- tinuing until the championship game more than a month later, the second intramural basketball tour- nament offered championship and consolation play for nearly fifty home room teams. W. J. Barnett, director of the tournament, initiat- ed this intramural play to afford competition for every boy in school and to aid coaches in selecting their squads. For entrance each team must consist of eight players of the same reporting room or a combination of two. The schedule provided for elimination play with a consola- Page Fifty-four Haclley's Boys Play Hard Second Team Learns Many Lessons That Will Help Next Year's Squad By Harold Weeks Bottom Row: I-Ioraoek, Oliver, Kaul, Wylie.

The gym floor was divided into two crosswise courts separated by a huge net. Four games were scheduled ifor the afternoon sessions, and several on Saturdays. The intramural title and trophy went to the reporting group of Lloyd W. Chambers. Winning all their games with ease, the members early appeared as probable titlists. Ivan Lawson was the outstanding player. Others composing the team were Bill Dimmitt, George Shoup, Bob Nelson, Phil Daneke, Kent Hudkins, John Kirk, Wayne Fer- guson, and James Cooper. Their names were engraved on the cham- pionship placard. The combination team of Miss Robena Pringle's and David T. Lawson's home rooms was the sec- ond place winner, repeating its rec- ord of last yearf The members were Guy Schaffery Roy Nightingale, Edward Stevens, Charles Cramer, Richard Stark,,and Milton Long. In the consolation brackets, Miss Mabel Kingsley's representatives defeated Miss Annette Webb's home room in the finals. Two New Leagues Besides they usual mid-winter activities in the gymnasium, two more popular: basketball leagues were initiated this year through the untiring efforts of Mr. Barnett. One of the leagues formed was the night school play made possible by C. H. Hepworth, director of night school. The other was a league for students who had no other chance of participation. ' The Night School League was composed of nine teams made up of teams or players who were not students or competitors in other teams, and entrance did not require enrollment in night school. Each team paid a small fee. Games were held on a round robin schedule every Monday and Thursday night. The title of the night school league went to Whitekers. The Student League barely sur- vived to complete its schedule. Mr. Barnett had planned a schedule for eight teams, but fourteen entered. The requirement for players was that they were not participating in any other organized league. Many teams forfeited through ineligible players. When the league was threatened with disbandment, the situation quickly cleared. A small entry fee probably will be charged next year to be refunded if no games are forfeited. This will help eliminate the weaknesses in this year's rules, Mr. Barnett says. The title of the Student League went to team No. 13, managed by Frank Ellis, The members of the team were Everett Young, Charles Cramer, Morris Williams, Ed Worswick, Sharitt Baker, and Jess Skaggs. Second place went to team No. 4, with Maurice Birt as man- ager. Baslceteers Get Hot Shots 1. Carnera isn't so tall! Look at Junior Florell. 2. Oops! Caught 'em unawares. 3.

Don McEntire CC N a bright and artistic set- ting, a graceful, winning, maddening, penitent Dulcy played riot with the affairs of her long- suffering husband." The above quotation from a World comment is putting mildly the capacity Dul- cy had for causing anguish on all sides, and yet remaining lovable. Catherine Dunkel, in the title role of "Dulcy", made her characteriza- tion believable and pleasing, al- though the audience could have slain her with acute joy, as she continued her meddling in nine lives for two solid hours. Never- theless, the night of March 23 was a great one for the high school pub- lic as well as for the cast, when Kauffman and Connelly's satire was presented. This second presentation of the Masque and Wig club was greeted with acclaim. Gf course, the fact that this was the only play on the activity ticket may have had some- thing to do with the capacity crowd, but one may be safe in ascribing its success to any one of several reasons. For instance, the play was written by the authors of the highly successful "To the Ladies" of last year: it boasted a cast of experienced young actors: and it was filled to the saturation point with witty repartee. The action of the play was cen- tered about Dulcy's efforts at a week-end party to force her hus- band's irascible employer, Mr. Forbes, to include him in an im- portant jewel merger. Before she finally attained her end, Angela, the beautiful daughter of Mr. Forbes, became entangled emotion- ally with a scenario writer, an ad-- vertising man, and Dulcy's brother, Willie: and Mrs. Forbes became more than ordinarily interested in a bogus "but very charming" milli- onaire, Mr. Schuyler Van Dyke. who later was quietly withdrawn from the scene by his faithful cous- in, Blair Patterson. Mr. Forbes, who had an aver- sion to anything concerned with bridge, golf, or the movies, was provoked to the point of trying to leave Dulcy's house-party because of a surfeit of all of them. He was somewhat astonished when he dis- covered that Dulcy had generously lent his car to his daughter so she could elope with the scenario writer. However, all ended well. Willie, the brother of Dulcy, fi- nally won out in his case for An- gela, Gordon got his contract, Mr. Forbes welcomed a repentant Mrs. Forbes back to the family fold, the bogus millianaire was discovered, and a lovely time was had by all. One of the most enjoyable scenes in the play was the one in which Leach, the scenarist, recited his newest production to accompany- ing music by the demented million- arie. He proclaimed the Weasel to be dead in a portentous manner that gave his statement the impor- tance of a declaration of War. Dur- ing the rehearsals of this scene, Willie, supposed to be sleeping, habitually interrupted the tirade by falling off his chair, much to the delight of the cast and the worry of Miss Wheeler. Throughout the play, Dulcy's only consistently loyal follower was Henry, the butler, Warden Lawesfprize graduate, who had a dangerous proclivity for signing other people's names to checks, and a weakness for pearls. Page Fifty-nine Musicians Have Active Year V gNTERING the National Music Contest with more entries than any other high school in Kansas, Topeka High School reached a cli- max in its highly successful musi- cal year late this spring. David T. Lawson Music Supervisor With a "Superior" rating for the band and an "Excellent" rating for the orchestra at the Emporia Music Festival and the State High School Music Contest, both groups are to strive for national honors. Soloists who will represent the school in the national competition are Georgia Sue Reuter, bassoon: Tomorrow's Beethovens Win First V in Statei Give Numerous Programs Grace Louise Skeen, flute: Frances Truelove, saxophone: Jack Dalby, baritone horn: George Loper, vio- lin: Robert T. li Boyle, cornet: La Verne Hackler, oboe: Gilbert Had- sell, string bass: and Elizabeth Searle, harp. i Highlights in the year's program have been manyand varied, but the most notable was the production of the grand opera, "Faust". An orchestra of fifty-five pieces, a chorus of seventy-five voices, and a ballet of twelve dancers from Topeka High School united with six members of fthe Festival Opera Company of Chicago to present the opera before a packed house. Me- dieval scenery and beautiful light- ing effects added color to the groups on the stage. Next year, according to David T. Lawson, who directed the or- chestra, and Miss Evelyn Fulton, who led the chorus, another well- known opera is ito be presented on the stage. A few weeks ago, after the opera, Topeka High School won the sweepstakes award of the Eastern By Carl Bowman Kansas League at Lawrence. This included high rating by the Girls' Glee Club, Boys' Glee Club, band. orchestra, ensembles, and soloists. Still more impressive was the outcome of the state festival at Em- poria, at which Topeka's band and orchestra earned the right to enter the national contest. The orchestra goes to Ottawa May 26 and the soloists May 24 and 25. Des Mo-ines, Iowa, is host to the national band contest May 31 and June 1 and 2. Give Weekly Broadcasts A unique feature of the music program of Topeka High for the last three years has been the weekly broadcast over WIBW, known as the Topeka H i g h School Musicale. These musicales a r e given by the va- rious organiza- tions and solo- ists of the de- partment. Evelyn Fulton Girls' Music Director g CHORUS AND ORCHESTRA OF "FAUST" Page Sixty Topeka High School Singers THE GIRLS' CHORUS The Choruses Interest shown in choral work in Topeka High School has result- ed in the largest enrollment in glee club and chorus work of any school of similar size anywhere and in many prize-winning s i n g i n g groups and soloists. Today 300 students are taking such work in Topeka High, with the enrollment evenly divided between girls and boys. The Girls' Chorus under Miss Fulton was especially effective, the only vocal group to rate "Highly Superior" at the League contest. The girls have done much concert work in the city and nearby towns. The Boys' Chorus under Mr. Lawson's direction has had the largest enrollment in the history of the school-177 members. The selected boys' glee club for contest work ranked "Superior" at the League contest at Lawrence. As in both boys' and girls' chorus work, the aim is to develop voices, giving encouragement to solo singing: to teach a high grade of musicianship and sense of musi- cal appreciation: to acquaint stu- dents with a large amount of stan- dard and classical music literature: and to furnish many programs at various activities in the city. Fine voices or great musical training are not required. It is desired rather to reach a wide group of the student body through a love of singing and a desire to become better acquainted with the broad field of music open to all. All the vocalists work together on A Capella chorus work and present at vespers and concerts a representative group of modern, Russian, and ancient choral com- positions. This year the produc- tion of the opera, "Faust", took the place of the cantatas given in former years. The Ensembles The breaking up of large groups into small ensembles has increased the skill of students and provided excellent entertainment at times when a larger unit could not be THE BOYS' CHORUS used. Seven ensembles have been formed from the orchestra alone. The string ensemble is the larg- est and oldest of the groups. String trios, quartettes, octettes, combina- tions of strings, Woodwinds, and brass. and, for certain occasions, en- tire orchestras have found many ways to organize and produce unique effects. E Playing for more than 300 oc- casions, these ensembles have ap- peared before church meetings, clubs, teas, athletic contests, con- certs, and parties. Small ensembles are becoming more and more popular among the singers also. Thus Topeka High has had a girls' quartette, a girls' sextette, two boys' quartettes, and one boys' sextette-the Octavians. All have sung repeatedly in' public. A smaller A Capella group of thir- teen, mixed, added points at the League contest. To encourage ensemble playing, three points a year are given toward the twenty-five needed to earn the award from the Music Letter Point System.

These groups were available for meetings, parties, and gatherings of all sorts and usually per- formed without compensation. STUDENT VERSION We had a swell time working in quartettes, quintettes, etc. Although there were times when we worked our heads off getting ready for a performance, we usually got enough enjoyment out of it to make up for the hard work.

Luckily for the green newspaper men, they started in plenty of time. for they had trouble enough learning the tricks of the trade.

On one occasion the COB and the business manager went together to the new Central Market to "sell a big idea." They sold it, with some strings at- tached, and read essays on "What I Like Best about the Central Mar- ket" for a month. Some of the staff's more notable achievements were the handling of the advertising for the Masque and Wig play, "Captain Applejacku Cand, incidentally, sharing heavily in the profitsj : sponsoring two es- say contests, the Central Market and "Voltaire", and helping with the makeup for The Tugboat. These enterprises are the ones the staff brags about. However, to delve into a shady past would reveal a variety of black sins, such as omitting names from the honor roll Camong them, young Wil- lard's!j, forgetting to tell Mr. Hays when a six-page paper was coming upon him, and misquoting the faculty.

The only thing that has been assured in each issue of the spring World was that something was bound to happen that wasn't sup- posed to happen. The spring of 1934 was a great year for the World, though. It isn't often that one high school paper. under one staff, has a chance to run stories on a State Tournament and a National Debate tangle. Now for a word of thanks to the members of the staff: JACK GRAVES, assistant editor. After Jack was chosen from 20 juniors, he made an immediate start. in spite of his inexperi- ence, to prove that the choice was proper. Jack learned rapidly. and should make a fine editor. BETTY LOU UFFORD, column editor. To Betty Lou fell the terrible job of writing the Periscope. And she did it. It wasn't her fault that one of the plays had to have a publicity manager: she still handed in her "Pery". on time and typed. BARTON PHELPS, news editor. Barton was the fellow always found at a type- writer pounding out some story that just had to be written in the last moment. or else producing a masterful editorial. That last bit was Barton's specialty, for he did it consistently. VIRGINIA BROWN, club editor. To the uninitiated, the position of club editor has if s. Herbert Langsdorf no significance, but everyone in 219 knows that it is one of the most complex jobs on the paper. Virginia. however, organized her reporters and made the club column one of the best in its history. NANCY SHARP, feature editor. One of the most faithful time-givers on the staff. Nothing was too much for Nancy or the time allotted too small. in spite of the fact that she was on the debate squad. MURIEL LEWIS. alumni editor. Muriel is the first alumni editor on the World. She succeeded in digging up choice items about old Trojans. RICHARD FORBES, exchange editor. Richard has kept a steady supply of clipped editorials at the copy desk. as well as a "From Other Columns" column every week.

We don't mean it flippantly when we offer our congratulations and honest apprecia- tion to Bob and his co-workers. They were right there. MARIANNA CHASE.

Having won five of the six tour- naments which they attended this year, the Trojan debaters entered Janett Miller John Davis the national contest with an un- usual record. The question for de- bate this year was Resolved, that the United States should adopt the essential features of the British sys- tem of radio operation and control. During the Thanksgiving holi- days the team went to its first in- vitation tournament of the season, held at Winfield and sponsored by Southwestern College. In this con- test the Topeka team advanced to the semi-final round: then, elimi- nated by Hutchinson, it stood in a tie for third place. A week later J. Edmond Mayer, debate coach, took the team to Cof- feyville to participate in the tourna- ment sponsored by the Coffeyville Junior College. Janett Miller and John Davis, the Trojan affirma- tive team, went to the finals, where they defeated Cherryvale for the championship. Janett was awarded the medal for being the best indi- vidual speaker of the tournament. Another Topeka team, Edward Stevens and Irving Kass, took third place. January 5 and 6 the debate squad with eight members of the Page Seventy Debaters Bring Home Trophy ' Orators Return as State Champions: I Intramural Groups Hope to Follow sophomore speech club went to Emporia to take part in the invi- tation tournament. Edward Stevens and Irving' Kass, negative, won first place in this tournament, with John Davis and Janett Miller tying for third. Every sophomore team survived the four preliminary rounds and' entered the elimina- tions. February 24 the Trojan team won the championship of the first district in the tournament held at Horton. Winning this tourney en- titled Topeka to enter the state con- test to which only district cham- pionship winners were admitted. Then together with five repre- sentatives in ,other speech events, the debate teafn entered the Eastern Kansas Conference tournament at Manhattan March 3. They took first place in debate, oratorical dec- lamation, original oratory, and ex- temporaneous speaking, and second in dramatic reading and humorous reading.

At the state tournament held in Lawrence, March 19 and 20, To- peka defeated Pratt in the finals to take the debate championship of the state of Kansas, Pour members made a team in the state tourna- ment and both affirmative and negative sides had to win in the duo-finals. After the winning of the state tournament, a special assembly was held to honor the victors. Bill Brownlee, Student Council presi- dent, introduced each member of the debate team. The members spoke as follows: Edward Stevens, "Inner Workings of a Debate Team": Irving Kass, "The Lighter Side of Debatingug Janett Miller, "The Serious Side of Debatingng and John Davis, "What Debating Has Meant to Me."

At first teams were required to de- bate one side of the question only, but because the majority of win- ning teams Were affirmative, each team was asked to prepare both sides of the question for the elimi- nations. Eight teams entered the semi- finals in which four were elimi- nated. After the semi-finals rankings were considered.

Prank Montgomery and Hart Spie- gel, affirmative, won the debate. thus capturing the championship of the second intramural debate tournament. Hart Spiegel ranked as the best in the tourney, with Kenneth Lewis second, Virginia Stevens, third, Karl Rankin, fourth and Helen Bushacher fifth. Helen Bush- acher and Charles Hill had the highest average of individual rank- ings of any team in the contest. Edward Stevens acted as man- ager of the tourney and was as- sisted by Robert Grice, Bill Utley, Janett Miller, John Davis, Harold Weeks.

Edmond Mayer, who has given time and effort in pre- paring his squad for its various en- counters. Acting in the capacity of gen- eral chairman of the National Speech Tournament, Mr. Mayer worked tireless- ly to make the c o n t e s t run s m o o t h l y. It was through his enthusiastic effort that the t o u r n e y was brought to To- peka this year. J. Edmond Mayer M r. Mayer received national recognition at the tournament when he was presented with the Special Service Award given to coaches of unusual merit. This is the highest honor that can be conferred upon a high school debate coach, and only two such awards were made this year. Have National Rating Two Topeka High debaters have received national recognition this year. Janett Miller is second in the United States in number of National Forensic League points: and John Davis, her partner, ranks third. Both are completing their second year on the senior team. Janett is a junior, however, and has one more season of competi- tion. John graduates this spring. Irving Kass and Edward Stevens have won thirty-one out of thirty- three debates this season: yet, since this is their first year on the team and it is impossible to make more than 95 points in a first season, neither boy can rank nationally. Both will be back next year. Topeka Host to Tourney Topeka High School has been host this spring, May 7-10, to the Page Seventy-two National Speech Tournament held under the auspices of the National Forensic League. In addition to de- bate, the tdurnament included con- tests in oratorical declamation, or- iginal oratory, extemporaneous speaking, humorous reading, and dramatic reading. When the Sunflower went to press, it Wai impossible to estimate the numberi of contestants in the tourney. However, some three weeks before the event, fifty teams and individual entries from all parts of the United States had made arrangements to take part. Entries were limited to teams or individual students who had won first or secorfd place in state tour- naments, first or second place in National Forensic League district tournamentsmor to speakers who were qualified because of last year's experience. Guests began to arrive Saturday, May 5, and wlere assigned to rooms in private honies. Under the super- vision of Mrsl Barton Phelps, all contestants and coaches were pro- vided with lodging during their stay. Many Topekans helped in this enterprise by entertaining the contestants in their homes. The actual Work of the tourna- ment began Monday. At 10:30 o'clock in the imorning the first round of debate and humorous reading took place. In the after- noon drawings for extemporaneous speeches were made and the second round of debatei completed. There were also two rounds of orator' and declamationiin the afternoon. Monday evening Topeka High School entertained the guests at a banquet in the cafeteria. Many dis- tinguished persohs were present, among them Richard J. Hopkins, federal district judge: George T. McDermott, federal circuit judge, Governor Alfred lLandon, Mayor Omar Ketchum, hnd Dean Ray- mond A. Schwegler of the Univer- sity of Kansas. i l After dinner the coaches held a speech contest in the auditorium on the subject, "A Better Monetary Standard." During this time there was dancing in the cafeteria for the high school speech entrants. Tuesday the fourth and fifth rounds of debate, and the third and fourth rounds of other speech events were completed. Thursday the winners in all events were pre- sented in a special program, and Friday afternoon they broadcasted a program to all parts of the United States by the National Broadcasting Co. in Chicago. Judges for the tournament came from the University of Kansas, Washburn College. Ottawa Uni- versity, College of Emporia, Em- poria Teachers' College, Baker University, Kansas State College, and Kansas City University. Causes Court Delay "It is with a great deal of pleasure that I accept the in- vitation extended to me by the executive committee, to attend the banquet to be given in connection with the Na- tional High School Speech tournament on May 7. "I have a deep interest in the promotion of such worthy undertakings for the youth of our country and feel so keenly the importance of this event that I am going to adjourn our regular term of court at Fort Scott, which was sched- uled for Monday, May 7, un- til Tuesday, May 8, in order that I may be present on this occasion." So wrote Richard J. Hop- kins, United States district judge, to J. Edmond Mayer, debate coach. Judge Hopkins was a special guest at the ban- quet and social hour the first night of the tournament, May 7. ,X W ,if 51' if WZ 5 'X fa!

Mr. Powers initiat- ed fall track this year, and a large number of underclassmen became interested. The 1933 track team was highly successful, making the most form- idable record Topeka High has had in years. It won the conference meet and took the regional title at Manhattan. In the sophomore hexathlon, Bill Trapp was high- point man and Vernon Lillard runner-up. Pre-season meets for the 1934 track team included a close dual meet with Emporia, dropped by a 65-67 count, a victory over Ottawa by a 71 to 61 score, and participa- tion in the Kansas Relays where they placed in three events. Later meets include the Baker Relays, April 27 and 283 the con- ference meet at Ottawa, May 5: the regional meet at Manhattan, May 12: and the state meet at Emporia, May 18 and 19.

Hays, printing adviser and baseball coach, is well-known in city and state amateur baseball circles for his effective training of youth. Last sprihg nearly a hundred boys turned, out for play in the intramural league. Choosing the best players from this tournament, Mr. Hays trained them during the early summer months. Represent- ing the American Legion Post of Topeka, the boys captured the re- gional and state championships. At 'ITRACK By Harold Weeks the district tourney in Springfield. Mo., in August, the Topeka team lost to the Chicago nine that even- tually captured the "little world series" from Trenton, N. J.

Warren Custenborder, Jesse Gra- ham, Ralph Johnson, Raymond Hickey, and Dave Beckley. This spring a league, divided into two groups of five teams each, has been necessary to give each candidate a chance to play. Two games are held each evening after school on the Chandler field diamonds. An intramural league for soft baseball has been scheduled for the first time this spring, with Carl P. Snyder in charge. The games are played every night after school on the diamonds in the rear of Ah building. Ten teams of e players each were entered.

Last year the Trojan team consisting of Fred Renker. singles player, and Warren Christner and James Kell, doubles combination, hung up another string of victories. These courtsters swept the championship brackets in both divisions in the Baker re- lays, regional conference, and state- wide tournaments. With only two returning letter- men, Christner and Clifford Steck, W. J. Barnett, tennis coach. has had to depend almost entirely on inexperienced' players. Christner. who plays No. 1 singles, was na- tionally recognized by a No. 4 ranking in the junior division for his outstanding play in several tournaments last summer. Steck is paired with Robert Thornburrow as the No. 1 doubles team. These boys will represent Topeka High in the Baker relays, conference, re- gional, and state meets this spring. This year's record opened with a clean sweep of the Winfield tour- nament last fall, when the singles title went to Christner and the doubles to Steck teamed with Kell. Kell was a letterman eligible for fig? semester competition. The spring results have added a 6 to l victory over St. Joseph Central, a defeat handed to Wyandotte by a Bottom Row: Thornborrow,'Adsit, Franklin, Blanton, Reynolds. Row 2: Shaw, Roush, Stanley, Christner, Hunter, Marshall. Top Row: Steck, Mr. Barnett, coach: Owen. TENNIS SQUAD 8 to 0 score, and an upset by the Wichita East racquet men who won by a ll to 1 score. This is Topeka's first loss in a dual meet in several years. Of the members of the 1934 ten- nis squad, only Steck, Christner, and Shaw will be lost through graduation or ineligibility. Players who will return for next year are Thornburrow, Agard, Roush, Franklin, Stanley, Owen, Reyn- olds, and Hunter. Golfers Have Full Schedule Because golf depends upon in- dividual skill instead of team or- ganization, the Trojan squad is usually small. " . ooue SQUAD ' Sage Weeks W ormington Colvin Ash Sandmeyer Brunkow H. D. Shotwell. coach, does meritorious work in providing ex- perience and advancing competitive style of play for the new members. The 1934 schedule opened with a quadrangular meet held at the Victory Hills course in Kansas City. The entries were Leaven- worth, Wyandotte, Rosedale, and Topeka. Topeka and Leavenworth finished the opening rounds in a tie for first, but in the play-off Leavenworth swept the final hon- ors, with the Trojans in second place. The next meet was a triangular match'on Topeka's White Lakes course between Wyandotte, Man- hattan, and Topeka, which the Trojans took with ease. A quintangular meet between Leavenworth, Wyandotte, Rose- dale, Lawrence, and Topeka was held on the difficult Lawrence Country Club course, and the Wyandotte and Topeka teams raced for first place. Wyandotte finally won by a 323 to 327 score. The remaining meets for the 1934 Trojan squad are the conference and state tourney. Outstanding players are Jack Wylie, a sophomore and runner-up in the city tournament last sum- mer, and Jack Colvin, a senior and letterman. Other members from whom the final four man team will be chosen are Charles Ash, Jack Wormington, Ralph Sandmeyer, Virgil Brunkow, Dick Sage, and Roy Weeks.

But he claps on the brakes, and the train comes a-screamin' and a-tearin' thru the station with the brakes all on and the whistles a-blowin', and then- crash!" said Saul Hodgkin breath- lessly, in the Senior play, "The Ghost Train". The part of Saul was played by Bernard Briman, who held the audience breathless by his weird tales of phantom trains and ghosts. Teddie Deakin, played by Alpha Perry, will be remembered by his inevitable "I say, d'you know, all this reminds me of a story I once heard of ai." Somehow or other, poor Teddy never did get to finish his story, even though he insisted that "it's quite a drawing room story." The newly-weds, Charles and Peggy Murdock, were played by Charles Neiswender and Mary Simpson. As could be readily seen, the novelty of married life had not yet worn off for them, and they believed as Charlie put it, "It's wonderful to be married--to have someone to stick by you through thick and thin-".

Top Row: Kelly, Kell, MacDonald, Turner, Atwell. p THE GHCST TRAIN I Though Richard and Elsie Win- throp, played by Francis MacDon- ald and Wanda Hunt, did not quite agree with the newlyweds' point of view, they did agree with every- one except Teddie that a haunted railway station is no pleasant place to spend the night. Throughout the entire play, Miss Bourne, played by Laura .Ann Bennett, 3 and Teddie had one grand tiltl. Miss Bourne could not see how anyone as dumb as Teddie could possibly live around sensible people. She told him emphatically that "things like YOU are found in cheese4-only better looking!" Mary ljlogeboom, in the part of Julia Price, had the whole audi- ence suffeting hallucinations with her as she cried wildly, "It will come tonight-I know it Will." Price, James Kell, adequately de- scribed Jiilia when he said, "I sometimesifeel that there is some- thing psychic about her." His fad- ing from the picture to come back in disguise, was rather unexpect- ed, but not any more so than the fact by which his real identity was disclosed. l Sterlingg Richard Brown, tried to soothelJulia's jumpy nerves with a talm, "Steady, dear, 1 l steady!" until finally Charles and Richard tried it on their wives. But his tone of voice changed some- what when he was proved to be other than he seemed, and he snarled, "Shut up, Price, don't squeal!" Jackson, Arthur Turner, soon had the matter under control, though, when he and Teddie en- tered the room at an opportune moment to catch the "devil's grandmother". As student director, John Strain did an excellent job of handling the cast. and, with Helen Bush- acher, property and costume man- ager, succeeded in turning out a fine mystery play. Frances Trulove was Helen's assistant. The business end of the per- formance was handled by Russell Kelly, business manager, while all publicity was handled by Nancy Sharp. Q As the sound effects were ex- tremely difficult in the "Ghost Train" and also quite important, the jobs of the stage manager and assistant stage manager were un- usually difficult, but were handled most successfully by Charles At- well, stage manager, and Orland Kilmer, assistant stage manager. Noted Artist Gives Sanction QERMISSION to use his paint- ing of the Constitution as the frontispiece of the 1934 Sunflower was given by Gordon Grant, the artist, to J. W. Fazel, head of the Capper Engraving Co., which has made the illustrations for this book. It was Mr. Grant's painting of which copies were sold by .school children throughout the United States 'some years ago to save Old Ironside from being dismantled. A framed copy hangs in Mr. Van Slyck's office. u Ay, tear her tattered ensign down. Long has it waved high. And many an eye has danced to see That banner in the sky: Beneath it rung the battle shout. And burst the cannon's roar:-- The meteor of the ocean air Shall sweep the clouds no more." --From "Old Ironsidesf' By this stirring poem. Oliver Wendell Holmes saved the famous battleship from being scrapped in 1830, when it was first threatened. The Constitution was one of six of its type built in Boston, Mass., from the plans of Joshua Hum- phreys. A wooden ship, it carried 44 guns and cost S302,000. Its crew consisted of 475 men. The vessel was first launched in Octo- ber, 1797, putting to sea in the summer of 1798. From then on the Constitution has figured as the most famous of American battle- ships. The brilliant career of the frigate includes forty battles in which she never met defeat. After many years of war service, the old ship was reconditioned in 1833, and made peace-time cruises to all parts of the world. In 1855. it went out of active service. Ex- cept for a brief period in 1878, when it crossed the Atlantic as a training ship, it lay in the Ports- mouth and Boston navy yards for decades. Gordon Grant Permits 'Sunflower' To Use Painting For Frontispiece Its existence was again threat- ened in 1930, but as a result of popular subscription and congres- sional action, the old vessel was once more reconditioned and placed in commission in July, 1931. Through the efforts of Barton P. Phelps, mechanical engineer for the Santa Fe Railroad and an alumnus of the class of 1901, the Topeka .Board of Education was able to obtain a spar from the Con- stitution. Mr. Phelps wrote to Vice President Curtis, who in turn By Annabel Putney made arrangements with the Navy Department. The Board of Educa- tion paid for the shipping, and the spar was brought to Topeka on three flat cars. It was first on ex- hibition at the State House grounds, Navy Day, 1931. It was then taken to Garfield School, where it was weathered for a year and shaped into a flagpole. The flag staff was designed by Dr. Ar- thur Gray and dedicated on Navy Day, 1932. at the east entrance of the new Topeka High School. f ww-fe like-'-4" if G mf: of 45'-if-qwfle fl- 1- - '-1.

Steiger, vice-president Mary Hogeboom, secretary-treasurer Helen Moimre, Harryette Nightingale, chairmen social committee VernoniMurrow, Howard Gilpin i Student Council ROM lthe class of '34 have de- veloped some of the finest leaders known in the history of Topeka High. This is as it should be, for this class is the first to spend its entire course in the inspiration of the beautiful new home of To- peka High School. As sophbmores in 1931 this group tookiparticular pride in the fact that they could find their way about the new building as easily as could thoseisuperior Seniors, who were themselves lost in an unfa- miliar setting. Let it never be said that any Senior had the laugh on a student of the class of '34, the first class to "grow up with the new bui1ding"! 1 This class as Sophomores and Juniors toolg part in all the cus- tomary activities, such as helping with the All-School Party program and entertaining the Seniors at the 1933 Prom. iThe Junior girls felt the thrill of Commencement when last June they led the graduating procession in! their long organdy dresses of pastel shades. They made part of a beaiitiful and picturesque effect, long remembered by the au- dience in the siadium, as in a color- ful line they filed down over the green grass at the edge of the i Harryette Nightingale Barton Phelps Officers Sophomore Year p Vernon Murrow, president Peggy Rickenbacher, vice president Harold Weeks, secretary-treasurer Barbara King. chairman social committee Hai-ryette Nightingale, Dorothy Jane Will- cuts, Student Council Washburn Bowl at sunset. And now as the Senior class of 1934, it is time for the third large class to graduate from this build- ing and then to separate and travel in all directions of the world never to be all together again. And so the class of '34 says goodbye to To- peka High School. Senior Sponsors Throughout its three years in Topeka High School the Senior Class of '34 has been guided by the faculty sponsors, a group composed of Miss Marie Crawford, Miss Grace Bixler, Miss Alma Calvert, and P. W. Chamness. Miss Craw- ford was chairman during 1932 and 1933, but this year relin- quished her place because her long hours in the library prevented her attending committee meetings. Miss Bixler was appointed chairman in place of Miss Crawford. The duties of class sponsors are at their height in the Junior and Senior years of a class. During the Junior year the sponsors must aid in arrangements and plans of the Junior-Senior Prom. The Senior year necessitates their supervision over announcements, invitations. measurements for caps and gowns, Baccalaureate exercises, class day and Commencement. 1 1 i 1 i ' Top Row FRANCES ADAM 4 Class Captain Ch.

After the banquet, the toast- mistress, Dorothy Jane Willcuts, introduced Coach E. B. Weaver who remarked that he felt much relieved because Mr. Barnett was not at hand to wise-crack at him, and introduced all the football let- termen. Coach Weaver presented Mr. Hadley, second team coach, as the man who took the hard knocks and received little glory.
