EVERY BOOK is in an intimate sense, a circular
letter to the friends of him who writes it .... Yet,
though the letter is directed to all, we have an old and
kindly custom of addressing it on the outside to one. Ct
what shall a man be proud, if he is not proud of his friends". . . .
So wrote Robert Louis Stevenson.
So writes the staff of the 1940 Sunflower, who prepared a book
this year for the enioyment of all Topeka High School, but addressed it
especially to one, a man whose friendship the high school is proud to
claim-A. J. Stout, for twenty-one years City Superintendent of Schools.

AM' Z Me of a government that
volunteered to give up much of its power in the
interests of democracy. It is the story of the Stu-
dent Council of Topeka High School, which, on
April 19, 1939, unanimously voted to offer for
popular referendum four amendments to the
school Charter, providing for the establishment
of a second governing body to share power with
the Council itself.
The amendments, which soon developed into
a complete new charter, set up a bicameral Stu-
dent Congress modeled after the Congress of the
United States. A President and Vice-President
were to be elected to form the executive nucleus
of the new administration. Besides the Student
Council, the Representative Council, made up
of Home Room Representatives, was to have
actual legislative power.
Although a Representative Council already
existed, it had been squelched in previous efforts
to institute changes in school routine. Last
spring, in a sincere effort to remedy this situation,
a conunittee from the Student Council headed
hy L. M. Cornish worked out a plan for a Repre-
sentative Council as the lower house of the new
Before the hnal vote on the amendments by
the student body at large, the Student Council

sponsored a' student assembly, in which the Pres-
ident, Bill Everett, explained the structure and
theory of the bicameral system, and heard objec-
tions and comments from the audience.
Once accepted, the machinery of the new Con-
gress began to function with the opening of the
new school year. Membership of the Student
Council remains almost the same: three Repre-
sentatives and the President from each of the
classes, presided over by the Vice-President of the
Student Congress. Ex-olhcio members include
the chairman of the Proctor System, secretary of
the Point System, and the editor of the Mforld.
As before, each home room elects a Represen-
tative, who, in turn, casts a vote in the election
of the Speaker of the House. This group gives
student leadership to some 75 boys and girls who
express the desires and grievances of their home
As in national government, the President has
the power of veto, though he may be overruled
by a two-thirds vote in both houses. Bills intro-
duced in either house must first go through com-
mittees, and to become laws they must secure
majorities in both houses.
The Student Congress elected this fall, headed
by Barton Bayly, President. and Stewart Reed,
Vice-President, has done notable work in organ-
izing a Pep Club, in handling activity ticket and
special program sales, in sponsoring assemblies
to explain their work to the students, and in
organizing a successful All-School Party in spite
of numerous interruptions.
This is ri condensation of "Student Council Goes Democratic," by Paul Williams, which appeared in the February Issue of
We, the graduating class of l940, entered Topeka
High in '37, choosing Harry Beerbohm as our
Sophomore president. We became well acquainted
through the school's one and only "Tag" day and
a big Sophomore party. Dick Grabham, our junior
class president, led us through our junior year, in
which we gave a successful Prom remembered for
Virginia Griileds "Deep Purple." As Seniors, a long-
awaited, much-discussed class party materialized in
February. A student opinion poll, giving the first
composite seli-portrait of a graduating class, was a
feature oi the late spring. Miss Wheeler gave us our
Senior play in May, followed by the Class Day, Ves-
pers, and Commencement in Moore Bowl. Class
sponsors who guided us through High School were
F. A. McCoy, Miss Ethel Frizell, Miss Ellen Camp-
bell, Miss Mildred Huddleston, and D. L. Erwin.

This year again, the primary purpose of the Proctor Sys-
tem has been to provide a method whereby students with
grades above average and with interest in some school
activity are selected to welcome and direct visitors, in-
spect passes, keep order in the halls, aid students in lind-
ing classrooms, and perform special duties assigned to
The Chairman of the Proctor System, who is appointed
by the Principal, appoints, with the aid of the Faculty
Proctor Committee, a Proctor Captain for each class
period. These Captains select from the rectnmnendation
lists submitted by teachers a group ol' proctors. Each
proctor is responsible for a certain post.
This year a Captain was appointed to have charge of
fourth hour. ln former years the Proctor Chairman
supervised this period, but the new plan was adopted
so that the Chairman might be free for other duties.
Mrs. Esther Kingman, Miss Merle Fowler, and A. M. Sea-
man composed the Proctor Faculty Committee this year.
Chester Hamilton, Chairman ol' the Proctor System, was
assisted by Captains John Crabb, John Herron, Barton
Bayly, Tom O'Neil, Bill Palmer, and Dick Epps.

from a nucleus of six returning lettermen,
Coach E. B. "Buck" Weaver, ably assisted by D. L.
"Heavy" Erwin, assembled a squad that won the Con-
ference championship and dropped but one game-the
last one. The Black and Gold forward wall, in the first
game of the 1939 season, met slight opposition from the
Southeast Knights of Kansas City, Mo. In the next game
the Trojans merely tied the Ward Cyclones, although
the driving play of johnny Herron was spectacular. The
first Conference game Topeka won from the Lawrence
Lions. Sparked by Harry Perry in the line and Kenny
johnson and Kenny Nelson in the backfield, the game
almost developed into a track meet. The team then
journeyed to Ottawa, where, led by Charles' "Chuck"
Zarker, little Topeka quarterback, it pushed over four
touchdowns in the last half to bring victory. In the two
non-Conference games that followed, the Trojans played
their best game of the season against the Wichita North
Indians, but routed the smaller St. joe aggregation by
only two touchdowns. Facing the Emporia Spartans in
a Iinal Conference game for the championship, the Weav-
erites administered a crushing defeat. Fired by determin-
ation to win from the Wichita East Aviators and avenge
the only loss of last year, the fighting Topekans lived up

74 homerooms, nearly 600 boys compete
in the annual Homeroom Basketball Tournament held
from November l3 to December l6. Alter hve rounds
ol elimination, only two ol the starting 58 teams re-
mained- the Weaw'er and Dickson-Dobson homerooms.
These squads had won the right to square oil in the
linals, which were to be held after the annual Alumni
game December l6. There was a great deal ol specula-
tion as to who would win the tournament. The Dickson-
Dobson team was guided by Co-captains Dana Holstrom
and Dwain Francom. The VVeaver team had Fred Far-
rier, Bob Sloan, Robert Vandeventer, Galen Galbraith,
Bill Gies, lrwin Coulson, and George Coyne on whom
to heap their laurels. Wlieri the smoke had cleared away,
a new champion had been crowned. The Weaver team
had defeated the Dickson-Dobson team by the score of
Bl to l3. Many spectators will remember the game be-
cause of the way George Coyne led his scrappy little team
to the championship, and by the way those stars. Gies

After 12 years of arguments, petitions, and edi-
torials, most recently and successfully attempted
by L. M. Cornish, '39, and Paul Williairis, '40, a
varsity baseball team has taken tl1e field for the
City of Troy. Building the '40 team around sev-
eral members of the American Legion All-Stars-
johnny Herron, Bill Gies, Bill Heleker, Ira Bon-
not, and Kenny johnson -Coach Claude Hays
produced a team of which Topeka can well be
proud. Opening their current season against
Ward of Kansas City, Kan., the Trojans displayed
power at the bat, pounding out 23 hits. Herron,
Anderson, and Griflitli led the hit parade. Kenny
johnson, southpaw hurler for Topeka, held the
visitors to l2 hits, whiffing 12. The following
week the team traveled to Kansas City, Mo., and
thoroughly trounced De LaSalle Academy to the
tune of I3 to 2. johnson turned in a brilliant
pitching performance, holding the Kansas Citians
to hve scattered hits, while his team mates col-
lected nine. Goldsmith, Bonnot, and johnson
led in hits for Topeka. With such a start and
with the Trojan spirit to spur them on, it seems
certain that the boys of Topeka High School will
in the future have a baseball team that will carry
the Trojan banner to great heights and add an-
other fine record to the already long Trojan list.

the 1940 season against
Salina and junction City, the Trojans
stepped out in grand style, taking
eight lirsts. Gordon Dibble won the
440, Forrest-Slaughter the 220 and
broad jump, Matthew XVilliams the
pole vault, and Bob Hodgell the high
jump. The relay teams also won their
events. ln the second meet of the
current season Topeka ran over Em-
poria 110 to 22. The Trojans, paced
hy Zane Murphy and Bob Hodgell,
won thirteen events. Eugene Burke,
distance man. won the mile, Les
Breidenthal, the singing track star,
sailed the discus 126 leet 11 inches to
win this eventg and Gordon Dibble
placed lirst in the quarter mile. To-
peka relay teams scored grand slams
in all of their events. Next, in line lor
the Thinclads was a quadrangular
meet with XVyandotte, Argentine, and
Highland Park. The Trojans won in
a photo finish, squeezing out XVyan-
tlotte 50 to 55. Bob Hodgell Cleared
the high binrnp har at 6 feet, M, inch
and tossed the jayelin 165 lieet.2 inches,
to win both events. Zane Murphy,
Houston Hogue, Glen Ticehurst, and
Forrest Slaughter formed Topeka's
winning 880-yard relay team. Don
Johnson, Trojan weight star, tossed
the shot 40 feet 7W inches for first
place, and Les Breidenthal took his
accustomed Hrst in the discus. The
medley relay was called a dead heat
between Topeka and Vlyandotteq run-
ning for the Trojans were Dibhle,
McClure. Brier, and Sterrett. Forrest
"Count" Slaughter was the man of
the hour. XVith only the hroad jump
left, Topeka and 1Vyandotte were tied
51 to 51. Then Slaughter stepped
into the picture and kangarooed 20
leet UQ inches, to nose out the lVyan-
dotte contestants and win'the meet

of 'l'roy boasted another suc-
cessful season under the tutelage of VV. ml. Bar-
nett, one of the finest Tennis coaches in the
state. Coach liarnc-tt's teams have lost only two
games in the last eleven years, and are regarded
as one of the strongest teams in the state. Last
year was no exception. The team defeated Mlyan-
dottc and Wlichita East in the two early meets
of the season. 'I'hen catne the only mar on their
record as they lost a closely contested game to
the Wlyandotte Bulldogs. The netsters regained

the l9?l9-40 basketball sea-
son offered to Topeka High only a series
of defeats until the last game, the season
as a whole was much less disastrous than
the mere number of wins and losses would
indicate. lt was a successful season in its
promise for the future and in its detnonstra-
tion of good sportsmanship on the part of
the team and of the school.
At every game the Topeka High student
body crammed the bleachers to see the Men
of Troy battle for the Black and Gold.
The newly organized Pep Club furnished
strong support for the combatants, while
the Trojans put up strong resistance to all
challengers. ln every game, spectators saw
a Topeka team staging a hard fight to the
last setond of play: and they had the satis-
faction of knowing that the majority of de-
feats were only by a small margin.
According to sport analysts, the squad was
composed of good material, though lacking
in co-ordination and aggression. Only three
trusty Seniors were on hand to form the
nucleus of the team f Tom O'Neil, Stewart
Reed, and Don Crites. These veterans were
reinforced by several promising younger
players who are certain to be sure-hre men
next year. The Trojan style of play im-
proved as the season progressed.
Among the valuable newcomers on Coach
li. B. XVeaver's squad this winter, Bill Gies
was one of the most outstanding. Bill had
his first experience on the squad this year,
but he was high point man for the season
with a total of 78 points. In the Topeka-
St. joe game played at Topeka, he contrib-
uted I8 of Topeka High's 31 points, and
made ll of the Zti points by which the
Trojans trampled Lawrence in the final
Urien Griffith was another star, running
second in points with a total of GO. Bill
Palmer was a close third with 57, followed
by Don Crites with 52.
The Trojans found their hrst victory when
the wall of Troy withstood the attack of the
Lawrence Lions, 26 to l9. They then ad-
vanced to the Regional Tournament at
Osage City in an attempt to qualify for the
State Tournament to be held a week later
in Topeka. Griffith took honors on this
trip. XVhen Osage City and Ottawa were
overthrown 33 to l9 and 37 to l8 respec-
tively, he scored ll of the points against
Osage City and I0 against Ottawa. The
Trojans lost their chance for the State
Tournament by falling to Emporia in the
finals, 27 to 24 after two overtime periods:
and for the first time in seven years the
Topeka team was host but not competitor to
the visiting teams of Kansas Basketballdom.
team was what some may call the
little ray of sunshine in the era of gloom that prevailed
over the Trojan Basketball camp this season. Coached
by D. L. "Heavy" Erwin, the second teamers gave a
creditable account of themselves, chalking up a total
of seven wins against three defeats.
From the opening tilt with the Wyandotte Bulldogs,
the Erwinites showed steady progress from game to
game and can boast of not being defeated twice by the
same team during the season. Coach "Heavy," from
a squad of 25 men later cut to l5, developed a smooth
passing and ball-handling quintet which brought a
sparkle to the eyes of the Trojan fans as they thought
about next year's team. Powell, Tyree, Lewis, Roberts,
and Patterson composed the nucleus of the second
squad, which promised so much for the coming seaspn.

Topeka High's Orchestra has stim-
ulated wide interest in the music
of the great masters. This year the
85-piece Orchestra has provided
musical assemblies: and its mem!
bers in ensembles and solos have
appeared before clubs. religious or-
ganizations, and civic groups on
countless occasions. The gala event
of the winter is the Revue, "Say It
XVith Music," when popular music
is in order. This year orchestra
members did "swing out" with
striking results. The Orchestra had
a leading part in two occasions that
have become traditions to all To-
peka-the Christmas program and
the Easter Sunrise Service. lt won
a "Highly Superior" rating at the
District Meet in Lawrence, and in
consequence was invited to the Re-
gional Festival in Kansas City.

0 Selected from 380 chorus students, the 62
members of the A Cappella Choir, under the
direction ol' Don M. Gleckler, are an extra-
curricular group who like to sing enough
to sing on their own time. Cast as gay
Yugoslavian peasants in the 1940 "Say It
With Music," members gave their all in "I
Won't Kiss Katy," a national folk song. At
the District Festival at Lawrence, the
Choir ranked in the First Division for the
third successive year, receiving recommen-
dation to the Regional Festival at Kansas
City. Helen Simmonds, alto, is the soloist
of the A Cappella. Bill Wellman is student
0 Singing a rollicking sailor song, boys of
the Senior Glee Club put the audience into
an atmosphere of sailing ships and pirates
on the high seas at the "Say lt With Music"
revue, February 8 and l0. Directed by Mr.
Cleckler, many times during the year they
entertained Junior high school groups and
civic organizations and sang for club meet-
ings and church programs. Participating
in the regional contests at Colorado Springs
last year, the club rated hrst division, and
was recommended for the regional contests
in Kansas City this year.
0 ln trim new black uniforms with white
T. H. S. monograms, the Girls' Senior Glee
Club has been in the spotlight many times
this year under the direction of Miss Helen
Dobson. The songstresses obtained Highly
Superior rating at the District Festival for
the third consecutive year, and took part
in the Regional Festival. They also assisted
in the annual music revue, "Say It With
Music," as white-robed sirens singing "Gre-
cian Landscapem in a classical setting of
white and silver. Bruce Herrick is the ac-
companist for the club.
0 The Madrigal Singers, with their old
English folk songs, presented 24 programs
throughout the year, the most outstanding
being their numbers in the Christmas Pag-
eant and their performances before the
Music Study Club and the Three Arts Club.
This is a stnall A Cappella group directed
by Mr. Cleckler, with Phil Humbert as
student director. Like the other advanced
voice groups, it won invitation to the Re-
U Besides the four ranking organizations
of the vocal department, tnany stnall units
have been active through the year in club

the most in demand.

no niove was tnade to create a Pep Club until the
latter plltl of the football season. more than eight hundred
students established their tnenibership as Trojanettes and
'l'royian-Knights by niidhyear. The Student Congress, after
niuch discussion and heated debate, voted a preference lor
the merit system over the method of election used in previous
years for the selection ol' the Honorary Pep group. Organiza-
tion ol the Club proper was placed in the hands of an Iixecu-
tive Clouncil-Charles Hunter. Chairman: Bob Fisher, Bar-
bara Dull. Harry Colniery, and Val .Xslibyx The Council was
assisted by a connnittee of sponsors-S. H. Stark, Chairnianl
Nliss llelen Shirk, A. Nl. Seaman, Miss Evelyn McCauley, and
Nlrs. XX'inston Schowengerdt-to whom tnuch credit lor the
Clnb's success should he given. The first action under the
new plan was the election of three boy and three girl cjheer
leaders. The girl cheer leaders were a new feature in the his-
tory ol' Topeka lligh Pep Clubs. To fortn the Troian XVar-
riors. each Senior Troqianette and Trojan-Knight was given
the opportunity to earn tnetnbership by devoting a certain
atnount of his titne toward the operation and functioning ol'
the Pep group. ln all, more than l75 credit-hours were given
to tnenibers for work done. To cliinax these efforts, sixty
Trojan XVarriors, in black and gold uniforms, sat in a
formation to cheer their tezun to victory in the final honie
game of the year. 1-Xs a reward the Trojan XVarriors were
allowed to serve as ushers and teani managers at the state
tournatnent. This year has been devoted to laying a firtn
foundation on which to build: the coming ol' the new school
year should find established a prosperous, acitive Pep Club.

third year, you're a liar!" describing' an Easterner's
reaction to Hollywood. She had reason to be bitter.
for in the course of the evening, her son-in-law was
swindled, her own son ran away with his sister's
Jewels and the neighbor's daughter, and Mrs. Barton
was driven to refuge in New Jersey, her old home.

play, presented May 3. Ieanne Melfarland and Bob
Sehober played the romantic leads in this hearty
farce, aided by Barton Bayly and Iudson Goodrich
as "heavies" and john Leeson as the "Black Sheepy'
whose knowledge of Hollywood enabled him to
unmask the villains. Mary Wanner was the be-
leaguered Mrs. Barton, while character roles were

Fresh, beautiful flowers - the ideal gift
for both young and old - and especially
those in between. A single flower can speak
far more effectively than a hundred words.
That glorious thrill that comes when the
waxy wrapping paper is eagerly torn away
- revealing the lovely, fragrant flowers
nestling in clamp cotton - is feeling un-

equaled. The gorgeous blossoms beauti-
fully say - -"I remember." Your thought-
fulness will mean happiness to another.
Send flowers for birthdays, to express sym-
pathy, congratulations, anniversaries, holi-
days, and for those occasions when you want
to put your best foot forward. Instead of
saying it with words-"Say it with Flowers."

I "With a flourish of trumpets, the beat of a drum, the flyi
ing of colors, we celebrate, for the conquering hero comes-"
White's, the palatial hang-out of the clubby buddies. Breathe
in some of that colloquial atmosphere of the collegiates with
tall cokes, loud socks, bow ties and that pen-in-hand look.
ln frigid sub-zero weather or in the sweltering heat, White's
simply oozes blithe young figures and excitable heat tunes
for all curtain-raising Trojans.
Q Last fall the smartest array of chromium and neon met
the eye when Price's Grill stepped forth to introduce the
most "tendicious" steaks the Trojan population has known.
Suppers that don't cost a fortune make one feel as prosperous
as a pop vendor in the Dust Bowl. Hidden value is found
in the nickelodeon, the size of a steam calliope and just as
loud and long on records. Round up the gang and make
"Price's the Place."
C Pop into Adair's if you want to be clicked by roving carreraa
men. They know many's the "Penny-YVise-Trojan" that
makes his way there after roof-top formals for more superb
music and icy cokes that give amazing stamina. Throw off
your winter mood. Pep up! You feel right-you look right-
when you get the Adair spring tonic.
Q K. U. has Brick's, but Topeka High has the Gem. Here's
where after-session studes gather for coke dates, jamming the
booths, and choking the tables. lt's the brighter side of High
Life, and there you're certain to meet the person you've been
wanting to make a hit with for some time. A major attrac-
tion is the licorice disks that can turn out as sweet a tune as
ever these ears did hear. So, Sophomores, show your school
spirit by dashing to the Gem to wade ear-deep in Seniors
I The Mart-as popular as peppermint and twice as cool,
the place to impress the current sensation! Away from the
noise of the city and Olll to park beneath the stars, to sip cold,
nippy cokes and compare notes on the present international
and interscholastic affairs. lVhen that hot, stuffy weather
comes and it's 'most too hot to dance. cars race to the Mart
for short -who's-with-who sessions, Fifth Avenues, and six
nickels for the music box.
Q Hot cheese sandwiches, dripping butter, and softhick
malts, give Flad Fe Marsh the undebatable bid for no-hostess
luncheons. Girls choose their inviting balcony for those
necessary get-togethers before the formals. This is the place
to go when the new outfit looks exceptionally well. for here
gather the debonair darlings and cosmopolitan cowboys of
this mid-western metropolis.
O A rousing cheer for the sunshine season when the Snow
White Dwarfies abound. Fun-loving Trojans, after a dip in
Gages "briny deep," rush to get one of those descendants of
that age-old philosopher "hamburger." Order one of these
delightful specialties and watch the boy friend beam on the
economic loveliness of thy brow. Plenty of parking room to
clash up and get one-blast service.
I You can be sure the crowd's at lEd's after varsities, after
plays. after concerts and games. If you want to see who has
a date with who-go and show off your own date as well.
XVeary "formalings" drag into Edelblute's to get a fresh start
with recuperating cokes. for the dance that eve, after a hair-
tearing day of decorating. piling three-deep into one booth
to exchange juicy bits of the latest gossip. The night of the
T. H. S. elections. after returns were relayed, victorious can-
didates gathered to celebrate with tall, frosty double cokes.
Continually blaring nickelodeon and a three-foot rifle range
make this place ah all-time enjoyment.

more impressive than most low-priced cars."
