After a hard fought campaign last fall these capable officers were elected to head the class of '4l: Glen Ticehurst, president: Edward Johnson, vice-president: Fred Rausch, secretary-treasurer: Ioanne Wallace, social chairman: and Dan Coats, Bill Palmer, Don Wingate, Student Council Representatives. Looking back over the three years of high school life that lie behind them, Seniors realize that time has flown by far too quickly, and it is with much regret that they say goodbye to the friends they have made and to the good times for which Trojanville is famous. Pondering over their early days in T. H. S., Seniors will remember the eventful night of Friday, Ian- uary 14, 1939, when they proudly presented their first social event, the Sophomore Party, under the lead- ership of these competent officers: Gordon Dibble, president: Barbara Long, vice-president: Barbara Duff, secretary-treasurer: Shirley Rogers, social chairman: and Martha Menninger, Bob Fisher, lack Cummings, Student Council Representatives. The class of '41 soon outgrew its subscrub days and enthusiastically took to the task of being Iuniors. The success of their prom will long be remembered by everyone who had a part in it. Officers of the Iunior year were: Bob Fisher, president: L. E. Willcuts, vice-president: Don Iohnson, secretary-treasurer: Martha Menninger, social chairman: and Gordon Dibble, Paul 'Hurd, Herbert Kauffman, Student Council Representatives. Recalling the difficulties involved in putting on last year's Prom, the Seniors were able to enjoy being guests of the Iuniors in the last of these events for them. A successful class party and the Senior Play climaxed their last year in high school, which will be fondly recalled as one of the happiest of their lives. - SHIRLEY ROGERS l 9 l Ed Iohnson Vice-President ed Haus h Ioanne Wallace Social Chairman VERTICAL ROW: Virginia Adair-Pep Club, Hostess, Proctor: Norma Elaine Adams--Honorary Pep Club, Iunior Glee Club: Myrna lean Adee-Honorary Pep Club, Proctor, Hostess: Ida AdoIphsonMHon- orary Pep Club, Proctor, Hostess: Sammy Alexander4Proctor.

Kg BILL When Bill Palmer reigned at the All-School Party, December 6, he was admired not only as King, but as the finest type of Trojan. He made two letters in football and three in basketball. A proctor captain in both his Iunior and Senior years, he served this year also as Student Council Representative, all the While maintaining a high stand- ard of scholarship. Scores of friends attest to his good dispo- sition and sense of humor. To- peka High will not soon forget anyone who has upheld the standards of the school so worthily as did King Bill of the graduating class of 1940-41.

In her Iunior year she carried an im- portant role in the class play, "Broken Dishes." As a Senior, she served most efficiently as election clerk.

It has often been stated that one cannot flunk in peace in Miss Bishop's classes. Lazy students, besides being prompted by Miss Bishop's poetic quota- tions, are always kept busy with special assignments and reference work. Thus they soon learn it is more profitable to keep up on daily assignments rather than attempt to get by with only partial preparation. One of the most versatile teachers in Topeka High, Miss Bishop has taught and tutored in history, constitution. economics, Latin, English, algebra, and geometry during her years in Topeka High. Among her many pupils have been Mrs. Verna Nims, Miss Amy Swenson, and Miss Mabel Kingsley, now on the high school faculty. Miss Bishop was teaching in Topeka High when W. N. Van Slyck. principal, was a pupil. Graduating Seniors well remember how Miss Bishop has always obliged them by taking an active part in student activities. They re- member how willingly she consented to do the "Big Apple" at that varsity during their Sophomore year. and how she "rolled them in the aisles" when she appeared in their Iunior-Senior Prom. Miss Bishop was born in Topeka on the site of our present city hall, but received her grade and high school education in Franklin, Nebr. ' In 1896, after only three years of college work, she graduated from Washburn with an A. B. degree. She was a member of the honorary scholastic organization, Tau Delta Pi. Miss Bishop started teaching in Topeka High in 1904. She spent two summers at Harvard. in 1903 and 1906, and in 1924 received her Master's degree at Washburn College. Today, Miss Bishop remains a character loved by all Trojans. Her high voice, echoing through the second floor halls, has always been a part of Topeka High. Her humorous disposition and interesting stories have long been admired by Trojans. Graduating Seniors of 1941 will never forget Miss Bishop, chairman of the Senior sponsors. lack Rigby Clyde Smalley Lyle Smeltzer Margery Tibbets, el lf Iames Dickson Its not the things you've done, dear, But the things you've left undone, That give you the bitter heartaches At the setting of the sun." Ella Wheeler Wilcox Miss Maud Bishop Many students in Topeka High's 1941 class have taken chemistry. During the time they were enrolled in chemistry, they have come to know Instructor Iames Dickson as a most kind and interesting person. Their days in his class will always be something to look back to. How well they remember their first laboratory experiment-glass bending- and how they jumped when Mr. Dickson first demonstrating the explosive reaction of hydrogen and oxygen! They remember Mr. Dickson's dem- onstration of the manner in which atoms go around together, his gal- vanic method of writing on the blackboard. and his many humorous stories, most of which were told more than once during a year's chem- istry course. Mr. Dickson was born in Auburn, Kansas. He has lived in Shawnee County all but the few years of his life when he taught school in South Dakota. His high school and college education consisted of four years at the Teachers' College at Emporia, and four years at the University of Kansas, where he obtained his A. B. degree in 1901 and his A. M. degree in 1906. Mr. Dickson was head of the science department in the high schools at Aberdeen and Deadwood, South Dakota, before coming to Topeka High in 1909. During his years at Topeka High, Mr. Dickson has taught both chem- istry and physics. For many years, he has also taught chemistry to nurses in training from various hospitals in Topeka. In all these years of chemistry teaching, no serious accidents have ever occurred in his classes. as Mr. Dickson stresses caution above all else. The "odoriferous odors" encountered about the third floor halls are always traceable to Mr. Dickson's lair-room 300. Within the room the littered desk and equation-filled blackboard have become familiar to chemistry students for the last three decades. Although his teaching has been chiefly confined fto one course, Mr. Dickson is well known in Topeka High and holds a warm place in the regard of all Trojans. l37l 4 cw, K n A, i, Q if E t gf?

LVLC6 f Q, when Topeka High School decided on the bicameral system of student gov- ernment patterned after that of the United States Congress, the two houses have worked ener- getically. Today, business moves through both governing bodies smoothly. One of the main issues in the fall election was the school charter. Social events and parties were other items on the many platforms of the candidates. The Student Council, with Bob Fisher as pre- siding officer, has been busy sponsoring var- sities and Working on the All-School Party. The latter is one of the main responsibilities of the Council, as all members take an active part in the preparations. Another product of this house has been the forum assemblies. These give the students a chance to air their grievances on problems confronting the school. The Representative Council handled the sale of student activity tickets, handbooks, and Sun- flowers. They also took an active part in plan- l53l ning the co-recreational program with the Student Council. Near mid-year the Student Council drew up a bill listing regulations for candidates seeking office and passed it unanimously. However, in the Representative Council things took a differ- ent turn, for the election bill was killed by an unanimous vote. The Proctor bill, which orig- inated in Representative Council, was approved by a slim majority, but was later voted down in the Student Council after all' pros and cons had been thoroughly debated. This bill pro- posed a student election of the proctor chairman and proctor captains from a faculty-certified list. As to the much-discussed school charter, both houses formed a committee to revise the old charter and to draw up a modernized form. A special assembly was held for student sugges- tions before either house voted on the new charter. True to campaign pledges, varsities were held at every possible date. -- L. E.

Van Slyck Miss Annabel Pringle Lloyd W. Chambers At the head of Topeka High's faculty is a capable group of directors. During his twelfth year as principal. Willard N. Van Slyck has continued to uphold the traditions of Topeka High. His interest in student gov- ernment has greatly promoted the democracy of which all Trojans are proud. Upon the shoulders of S. H. Stark, vice-principal, rests much of the Work of making the school run smoothly. The ripple system and the new enrollment procedure have been inaugurated under his guidance, insuring every student fair and impartial opportunity with every other student. Miss Annabel Pringle, at the opening of the fall sem- ester, gave up her social studies classes to take over the duties of Miss Helen Shirk, now Mrs. William Long, as dean of girls. Well-loved by all Trojanettes, Miss Pringle has fitted into the position perfectly. Director of guidance, Lloyd W. Chambers has been instrumental in helping students plan their courses to suit their choice of vocation and in obtaining work for those who need employment. The fine co-operation given by Topeka business men and civic organizations is due largely to his effort. 1551 S. H. Stark wz ADMINISTRATORS Formerly the principal of Topeka High School, A. I.

F- l e- 1 W " Undefeated, untied, and with its goal line crossed but five times, the 1940 edition of the Trojan gridsters is the first undefeated squad Topeka High has known in ten years. A truly great ball club, it was rated tops in Kansas high school football. The proteges of E. B. Weaver and D. L. Erwin went through a tough nine- game schedule, bowling over such teams as Southeast of Kansas City, Mo., Ward of Kansas City, Kans., Lawrence, Ottawa, Wichita North, Wichita East, Emporia, Salina, and Wyandotte. In the initial game of the season, the Troymen rode over the Southeast Knights of Kansas City, Mo., 48-0, with Duane Patterson, flashy junior halfback, scoring four counters. Ward wa: the next Topeka oppon- ent, and the Trojans returned from Kansas City with a 40-0 Win. Then came the first conference game, with Lawrence, ancient Topeka rival, as the foe. The Trojans, though not playing up to their usual standard, emerged victor 7-6 in a hard-fought battle. Kenny Iohnson, great Trojan back, scored the lone Topeka tally. Pat Green stood out for the losers. l52fl The Ottawa, Wichita North, and Em- poria games followed, with Trojan wins nf 20-0, 26-0, and 19-O, respectively. The Nin over Emporia gave Topeka undis- puted championship of the Eastern Kan- sas conference. The defensive play of 'ohn Herron and Harry Anderson stood nut in these games. The high-stepping Trojans next moved Lo Salina, where they downed the Vlaroons 26-6, Kenny Iohnson turning in mother brilliant performance. Bradley :Jlayed a bang-up game for Salina. Wichita East was the eighth Topeka victim by a score of 27-7. Don Iohnson :ind Bennett Eddy played a great game for the Trojans. Last came the big game, Wyandotte. The Trojans were out to get revenge for the 1939 defeat, and they took it tn the form of a 32-13 win over a stub- born Bulldog eleven. Kenny Thompson, Wyandotte back, starred for the Ca- nines. Bill Palmer, senior fullback of :he Trojans, scored two touchdowns :Ind passed to a third. Thus the Trojans of 1940, Eastern Kansas Conference champs, and one ot the greatest of all Topeka teams, closed I qlO1'1OU.S SGCISCQIQ.

Powers was forced to build his' 1941 track squad around a small group of returning lettermen. With such performers as Bob Hodgell, Gordon Dibble, Les Breidenthal, and Donxlohnson gone, Coach Powers had to find boys capable of filling their shoes. ' However, with the return of Glen Tice- hurst, Ioe Barrientos, and lim Brier, to- gether with a prospective bunch of Sophomores, the tracksters promised a good season and plenty of competition in the State meet. Last year's squad topped off a suc- cessful season by winning the Confer- ence and Regional meets. This year, in addition to several dual meets, the squad entered the Baker and K. U.

Last year's squad, the first Topeka High has had in a decade,'proved, by hanging up an undefeated record for the season, that Trojan baseball teams are just as good as ever. This year's squad promised to be a repetition of last year's. With the re- turn of six lettermen, Coach C. A. Hays looked ahead to a bright year. Al- though hurt by the loss of Kenny Iohn- son, stellar southpaw, Mr. Hays had an imposing group of new hurlers. The infield and the catching were well handled, and the team had plenty of punch with Iohn Herron, Orien Griffith, and many other returning veterans. The tentative schedule listed games with Ward, Wyandotte, Emporia, and Rockhurst of Kansas City. -ED IOHNSON Bud Oppliger-heaves the ball back to the pitcher BASEBALL Bob Powell burns one over the plate Row 1-Chappell.

"Sing with an open tone, cmd breathe with the diaphragm"-this is a common command in the vocal department. There must be merit in it, too, because the department boasts five top-notch organizations that have made them- selves popular by their many perform- ances. The Girls' Glee Club and Girls' Ensemble are under the direction of Miss Helen Dobson. Don M. Gleckler directs the Boys' Glee Club, A Cappella Choir, Madrigal Singers, and various male ensembles. THE MADRIGAL SINGERS are se- lected from students belonging to both Senior Glee Club and A Cappella Choir. They find interpreting English madrigal music a fascinating pastime and have brought pleasure to others by giving numerous concerts. Light numbers, Negro spirituals, and classics make up the repertoire of the A CAPPELLA CHOIR. The high spot of gyoja ' gig the year was a trip to Wichita to sing for a teachers' convention. Other per- formances included church programs and spring festivals. Giving many and varied musical pro- grams, the GIRLS' ENSEMBLE has been much in demand. Selected from the Girls' Senior Glee Club, these girls hold their practices after school hours and work over more difficult music than is used in the glee club. THE BOYS' SENIOR GLEE CLUB is a group selected from four chorus classes. Uniformed in black trousers and jackets trimmed in gold, the boys make a pleas- ing group, both to hear and to see. Ranking with the Boys' Senior Glee Club is the GIRLS' SENIOR GLEE. Light and heavy numbers alike are included in their programs. During the year the girls sang in many church programs and at several spring festivals. - IANE BANTA Bob Richmond, tenor soloist Row lfGrassick tpianistll Miller, Foster, Montgomery, Robinson, Kahle, Babcock, B.

Directed by David T. Lawson, this group of young musi- cians has put forth every effort and has produced some really fine music. In past years the orchestra has given unstinted time and energy to preparing for the big musical show of the year, "Say It With Music," which because of conflict in dates, was not given this year. Thus the orchestra missed a good chance to show the public what it had been doing during the year: but, to make up for it, the group had a trip to the University of Kansas to attend the Midwestern Music Clinic, the first meet- ing of its kind to be organized. The orchestra looked forward with anticipation to playing host to the He- gional Music Festival, and did its part to make this, the biggest event ever held in Topeka, the finest event as well. - IANE BANTA French horn quartet, Iames Barker, Myrl Becker, Harry Spencer, and R L.

A twirling corps of 10 girls in gold uniforms led by Betty McElhiney adds a final touch of beauty. With Harold Siebert as drum major, the band has played for numerous occasions, the most important of which were the inauguration of Governor Ratner and "Trojans on Parade." Besides these per- formances, it played at the football and basketball games and gave several con- certs during the year. After qualifying at the District Meet, the band and orchestra settled down to con- sistent rehearsing to prepare for the final event, the musical event of the year-the National Music Competition Festival. This year Topeka was host for the first time to Region Nine of the Festival, the last gath- ering of national scope in which Kansas schools will take part. -IANE BANTA Harry Spencer gains honors axine Spannagel, Bob Canatsey, Cecil Baker, cmd Anna Marie Sund -clarinet foursome-make ready for district contest ,L,4ig2fglY?22,i4 ,QLD 2552 ini? wif' qgzzf, Q :3:5'E5x-C5 J '7:I.

The audi- ence was tense with excitement as crash fol- lowed crash and ambulances shrilled over the field. Although there were many occasions for laughter, the play had its sad moments. More than one sturdy male was caught blowing his nose and wiping his eyes When Texas Clark, played by Vernon Leiberman, died after his exciting crash. Perhaps it was just that every- one was so taken with Vernon's southern drawl that they hated to see him out of the play.

Don Dustin, president of the Topeka chapter, Bob Wright, Paul Moser, lim Davidson, Phil Herrick, and Albert Wessen are the old members of the League. New members include Ted Crane, Iohn Dean, Ned Fleming, Ioanne Iones, QMary Lonam, Bob Meyer, Payne Ratner, Bob Rymph, Bill Sellen, Harold Siebert, Harry Smith, Howard Swartzman, Warren Walker and Pearce Zimmerman. The team, ranking third in the state tournament, was composed of Donald Dustin and Bob Wright on the affirmative, and lim Davidson and Paul Moser on the negative. During the year the entire squad, under the coaching of P. B. Graves, had taken part in 184 debates, winning 125, losing 59. Seniors, how- ever, Won 34 and lost only five, Iuniors won 76 and lost 34: and Sophomores won 15, lost 20. Of the 10 tournaments entered, the Trojan de- baters won first place in two, the Pittsburg and the State District events. They tied for first place in three others, but took second in speaker ratings. Because of their record during the season, they were invited as one of the 12 outstanding teams in the central states to participate in the Went- worth Tournament. Topeka High Forensic members participated during the spring semester in extemporaneous speaking, oratory, readings, and after dinner speaking, maintaining an equally high standard. With a record such as the Trojan debaters have set in this season, Topeka High can look back and be proud of the fine things the 1940-41 debate squad accomplished. -SHIRLEY ROGERS Senior debaters in action-Bob Wright fires away while Paul Moser gets up steam State toumament debaters, Dustin, Wright, Moser, and Davidson hear Mr. Graves' advice Row 1-Ioanne Iones, Ned Fleming, Iim Davidson.

Big news centered around the school election with its handbills, White-wash signs, and campaign hubbub unpar- alleled in Trojan political history. With the special train to Emporia was started the Lights and Sidelights col- umn, a collection of notes by Iournalisrn students. Other events of outstanding signifi- cance to World newswriters were an All-School Party that left nothing to be desired and an all-victorious football team which students feted in the first Athletic Banquet in years. Last fall's World also featured a lit- erary column: "Roseybell," a colorful character in a series of stories: and a Willow column that backfired. -HERBERT KAUFFMAN, Editor World Editorial Staff-fSeatedl Peterson, Martin, Willcuts, Grubb, Kauffman teditorl, Zimmerman, Saderstrom, Painter, Youngman, Rogers. tStandingD Williams, Burkhardt, Rutter, Mayer, Rausch, Lewis, Rice, Starr, Shoaf, Sturm. 92 tbusiness managerl, Couch.

Valuable business experience was one .of the rewards the Fall busines: staff of the World gained from its tern of active advertising work. We drev up and sold several composite ads per taining to school functions and studen interests. In fact, these ads were the surest source of our revenue. I enjoyed the business managershiy immensely, for I had a grand staff tc co-operate with me. My solicitors Wert good workers, willing to get out in anj kind of weather in order to bring in tht ads on time. In meeting business men and women I feel I learned much about salesman ship: and the managership helped mt to develop leadership and responsibiT ity.

News was ample-a basketball team that functioned, 12,000 musicians in town for a national convention, and some fine plays and parties. School affairs in general kept me from ever wondering if anything went on under the Tower. The Topeka State Iournal provided World Staff members with a memorable experience when they invited us to put out the Iournal for one day. The World's pictorial sidekick, the High Life, man- aged to put out a banner edition. Yes, it was a Spring to please the heart of any editor, indeed.

To start off the festivities a program was held in the auditorium, with Dale Briman and Chuck Feezer laying them in the aisles as co-masters of ceremony. The curtain rose on a street scene outside of a toy shop, with typical characters grouped around. A Salvation Army worker rang her bell, and Mr. McCoy and Mr. Fink circulated about as the fat and thin Santa Clauses. Surprise hits of the show were Miss Welty with her two obstrep- erous little boys, Mr. Stark and Mr. Weaver. Dressed in quaint buster brown suits, short pants and all, they ran riot on the stage. Elaine Scrinopskie and L. E. Willcuts, waiting for a bus, 'carried on a nasal Bronx jargon in the true Brenda and Cobina style. A toy shop literally bulging with toys tlive ones at thatl formed an- other scene, with Mr. Briman as the capable owner. For entertain- ment he brought forth from the shelves mechanical accordion playing dolls, colored jitterbugs, girls' dancing choruses, and the town clown. Madame Dale Easton and her clothes modeling mannequins brought down the house, as did Madame Easton's authentic fan dance. Some of the daintier members of our football team gave their interpretation of the Can-Can. Harold Siebert distracted everyone by trotting on and off the stage, removing a portion of his clothes each time he appeared. Presentation of the king and queen and their attendants climaxed the program. Queen Barbara Long and King Bill Palmer, looking every inch the royal couple, were surrounded by their gracious attendants, Barbara Duff, Carolyn Kline, Gordon Dibble, and Kenneth Iohnson. Colored king and queen, Howard Hurst and Marjorie Harmon, were accompanied by their attendants, Betty Iohnson, Ernestine Turner, Clyde Carper, and Millard Hicks. - BARBARA RICE.

April 4, via the Iunior-Senior Prom. Amid the strains of Spanish music, the colorful cos- tumes ofthe troubadours mingled with those of the La Conga and Tango dancers. From beginning to end, the program was filled with laughter, music, and dancing. Set in a South American hotel, comedy was fur- nished by its eccentric Spanish manager, Iose, played by Vernon Lieberman, and a lazy servant, Iuan, portrayed by Fred How- ells. Betty Chubb, as Bosita, Iose's daughter, and lack Myers, as an American tourist, held the romantic leads. Several vocal ensembles added variety by singing popular numbers. When the final curtain rang down on the performance, Trojans adjourned to the cafe- teria where they danced to the music of Odell Weidner's orchestra. At intermission stu- dents flocked to the refreshment tables where they were served lime floats and cakes. The hand of the clock slipped around to ll:30 far too quickly, and another successful Iunior-Senior Prom Went down in history. - SHIRLEY ROGERS Dale Briman can't see any- thing funny.

Sponsors of the class were Miss Ruth Phillips, Mrs. Lucille Ely, Miss Maud Hulse, Mrs. Verna Nims, and I. W. Iones.

Van Slyck, principal, has demonstrated enlarging and Keith Lager- strom has demonstrated printing. Miss Mary Davis has shown her cloud pictures, and Iames Crask his motion pictures. One meeting was held in the art gallery when the Topeka Lens Club was having its exhibit. Miss Davis is club sponsor, and Iames Crask is president. Usher Club Cabinet-Dustin. secretary-treasurer: Siebert, president: Sol D. Dice, sponsor: Giddings, vice-president. OZAAQ CZ! Like many other noteworthy features of To- peka High School, the services of the Usher Club often are accepted as a matter of course. Everyone who attends an evening program at the high school, or a program connected with the high school at the Municipal Auditorium, is shown to his seat quickly: rarely is there an error or case of confusion. Back of this precision is a highly trained corps of boys and girls who give their time as a school service. As an ad- ditional service, the club this year maintained the Book Exchange at the opening of both sem- esters. Sol D. Dice is the sponsor, and Harold Siebert the president. - ELEANOR MARKHAM Seated-Bryant, Love, Pozez, Gilliland, Crask fpresidentl, Lagerstrom Cvice-presidentl.

Thirty-seven students have been in- itiated this year into Quill and Scroll, international honorary society for high school journalists. Nominees are re- quired to have collaborated in the issu- ing of a publication, at the same time maintaining a B average in all subjects. E. B. Chapman, managing editor of the Topeka State Iournal, was guest speaker at the first initiation, following a dinner downtown. The second took place at a party at the home of Herbert Kauffman: and the last was held in the journalism room. Miss Ruth E. Hunt is faculty sponsor. fgzaionafgmiifozkznfi All dramatically minded students have as their aim membership in the Thespians, a national honorary dra- matic society whose members have had a major cast or staff position in a high school play. The aim of this organ- ization is to heighten the standard of high school plays. The Masque and Wig and this club joined in a banquet in Ianuary, when the initiation for 10 National Thespians was held.

Initiation services were held the evening of May 19, with several col- lege alumni assisting. - h The first National Honor Society in Topeka High was in 1926. Since first installed, membership in its ranks has been one of the greatest honors that a Senior could achieve. To be eligible, students must rank in the upper third of their class. Then the faculty vote on their character, leadership, and service to the school. Members of the faculty committee this year were Mrs. Verna Nims, chairman, Miss Ellen Campbell, Miss Elizabeth Culver, Mrs. Lucile Ely, Miss Mabel Fry, Miss Maud Hulse, I. W. Iones, and Carl P.

He was killed in a train accident, Iune 21. Philip was a Sophomore in the home room of D. L. Erwin, his uncle. An active member of the music department, he played a tuba in the Trojan band and was in the accordion band. He was a Boy Scout and a member of the Central Congregational Church. David T. Lawson, director of music, said, "Philip was a dependable boy. He was developing into one of our best musicians. His death was a great loss to us." DAVID SCHMITENDOBF "Cheerful and willing to help people," describes David Schmitendori, who was fatally wounded October 5, in a hunting accident. He was a Iunior, and a member ot Mrs. Rachel Fudge's home room. Always trying to improve in the different things he undertook, he was Cx good worker. Ready and able, he will always be remembered by his classmates and teachers ior his winning smile and friendliness. Funeral services were held Monday, October 7, at the Church of the Nazarene.

Let's join them in the thrill of riding in a new Chevrolet Special Cabriolet- the thrill of settling back in the soft red leather upholstery, and the thrill of a quick pick-up. It's a pleasure, too, to know you're safe-enclosed in safety plate glass, re- lying on hydraulic brakes, and doing your night driving by the light of sealed beam head lamps. There are lots of other features, too-shock-proof steering, vacuum-controlled gear shift, separate parking lights, and a silent 90 horse-power motor. It sounds as if "Chevy" is first again, just as it has been nine out of the last ten years. To find more about the new Chevrolet, go to the Blevans Chevrolet Company, 10th and Quincy, and when your dad is in the market for a new car, take him there and try the leader of the low price field . . .

This means Washburn now is YOUR college! P 4 There is where you'll meet your friends, your old high school classmates: there is where you may obtain a university education within walking or bus distance of your home. When Washburn opens in September as a municipal university it will be available to you at a greatly reduced tuition. Washburn is Topeka's gift to you. Take advantage of its facilities, its traditions, its spirit!
