Bill Palmer Don Wingate Dun Coats
Representative Representative Representative
From a group of some 900 bewildered Sophomores who entered Troy in the fall of 1938 has emerged
Topeka High's sixty-ninth Senior class. 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
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
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.

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.

Barbara Long, lovely bru-
nette, following in the footsteps
of her older sister, made a
charming Queen to rule over
the All-School Party. Quiet,
poised, and friendly from her
first entrance into Troy, Barbara
was elected vice-president of
the Sophomore class. 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. Besides being a
proctor and a hostess several
terms, Barbara belongs to sev-
eral music groups, to Masque
and Wig, the Thespians, and
the Girls' Honorary Pep Club.

This quotation is familiar to all pupils of Miss Maude Bishop. 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.
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-
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.

With their "sub-scrub" days behind them, but
still awaiting the time when they'll be high and
mighty Seniors, the Iuniors have proved their
importance by taking an active part in student
life at Topeka High. Through the efforts of the
Iunior class officers, a gala Iunior-Senior Prom
was presented this spring.

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-
ning the co-recreational program with the
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
True to campaign pledges, varsities were
held at every possible date.

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
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.
S. H. Stark

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
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.
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

Coach Fred R. 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
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. Re-
lays, the Conference meet, and the
Regional and State meets.

1941 promises to be a great year for
the Trojan baseball team. 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
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.

Climaxing the double round-robin in-
tramural football season, the Intramural
All-Stars, a team picked from the four
intramural squads, journeyed to Emporia
for a game with the Emporia "B" team.
Playing under adverse weather condi-
tions, the two elevens battled to a score-
less tie. Coached by H. D. Shotwell and
P. Snyder, the intramural squads are
who are not ready for
Bishop's and Miss Whee1er's groups.
Played as a preliminary to the Trojan-
Alumni tilt, the game ended with Miss
Bishop's team the Winner by a score of
19-18, in an overtime thriller. Members of
the winning team were: Bob Swenson,
captain: lean Fisher, Clair Martin, Ralph
Young, Willard Hall, Ierry Shakeshaft,
and Paul Smith. They received the en--
graved plaque given each year to the
victorious team. AV

ances. The Girls' Glee Club and Girls'

the year was a trip to Wichita to sing

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.

The 71-piece orchestra is one of the
finest organizations in Topeka High and
has furnished a great deal of pleasure
both to those playing in it and to its
various audiences. 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.

After qualifying at the District Meet, 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.

Again the Masque and Wig scored a hit with
"Ceiling Zero," the 1941 production. The audi-
ence was tense with excitement as crash fol-
lowed crash and ambulances shrilled over the
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.
Lois Elaine Willcuts, Don Love, and Hink Guy
deserve extra credit for their fine work in the
leading roles. L. E. and Marianna Becker as
air hostesses made all the boys want to go on
airplane trips. Hink Guy, lack Meyers, and
Vernon Leiberman didn't do much to influence
the girls to travel by rail either!
Everyone agreed that one of the finest per-
formances of the evening was given by Fred
Howells, as the janitor who, before his crash.
had been a good pilot.

During the debate season of 1940-'41, fourteen
new members were admitted to the National For-
ensic League, honorary society for debaters. 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-
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

' With a program brimming over with good old Christmas spirit, and
amusements varying from Chinese checkers to dancing, Topeka
High witnessed, on the evening of December 6, anotherrin a long
line of successful All-School parties.
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
Colored king and queen, Howard Hurst and Marjorie Harmon,
were accompanied by their attendants, Betty Iohnson, Ernestine
Turner, Clyde Carper, and Millard Hicks.

Gaily bedecked in spring formals and
tuxes, Topeka High Iuniors and Seniors were
transported to the South American Way.
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.

National Honor Society this spring. Initiation services
were held the evening of May 19, with several col-

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.

School only a short while, the loss of Philip
Becker was deeply felt by his classmates. He was
killed in a train accident, Iune 21.

Trojan band and was in the accordion band. He
was a Boy Scout and a member of the Central
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."
"Cheerful and willing to help people," describes
David Schmitendori, who was fatally wounded

from the voters and taxpayers of
the City of Topeka
By a 4 to 1 vote in April your parents and neighbors decided to extend the
city's educational system to include the fine modern plant and splendid ac-
credited college facilities of Washburn.
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!
