- .mong the shadowy elms and oaks could be seen the ivycovered
buildings of Bethany. This was the squcaeon which our campus now stands. You could not
see then the white tower of cut stone rising to the clouds., You could not see the architecture
that was to challenge the quiet beauty of Grace Cathedral. This existed only in the dreams
of a few Topeka citizens. Then the Bethany grounds were purchased by these citizens for the
building of this vision. Spring, 1932, and Topeka High School said goodbye to its first Senior
class. Ten years have gone 'by rapidly, but tower has not changed. nor have its friends,
they students. Ten years have passed and the outgoing Seniors still look up at it more and more
frequently. as those who -are about to leave will always do, as it chimes away their remain-
ing hours together with the message andkprayer, "Dear Lord our God, be thou our guide."

That he will never know a fear .

Our beloved building finds the light
To guide us towards a better life

0,Q KL Remember? Way back ini 1939 when the
Glass of '42 entered Troy, they were uncertain,
awed, and unknown. Choosing Frank Eckert
for their president, they had an exciting
Sophomore party that netted exactly six cents
profit. As Juniors they staged "june Mad,"
thrilled to their first Junior-Senior Prom,
proudly formed the Daisy Chain, and ushered
for the graduation exercises. Finally they
were Seniors! Their last year teemed with
activities-music, dramatics, athletics, and all
the rest. Friendships begun in earlier years
mellowed and strengthened into lasting ties.
, We Finally came the climax - Commencement!
i m obufffv YVhether the members of the Class of '42 find
S 3 vgwfl jobs, go on to college, or join the fighting
forces of our country, these Seniors, products
,Q that sell themselves, are Topeka High School's
W best method of advertising to the community.

Homecoming Game and, second, of the All-School
in the festivities of the Senior Class as social chairman and as
of the school in the impressive induction ceremony for incoming
In addition to being an honor student, "Issy" was active in the Senior Glee
Club, and in both the Dramatic and Publication departments. Everyone in
Topeka High knew by sight this dainty little Senior with Haming red hair
and friendly smile. With her merry "Hello" and eager interest in everything
that promoted the schoolls welfare, she was representative of Trojanville.
JIM BRIER, King of the All-School Party, proved this year that friendship
and duty can exist together. As Chairman of the Proctor System, he main-
tained a strict discipline and at the same time made and kept friends innum-
erable. Large of stature, with winning smile and quiet dignity, jim had
an unbounded enthusiasm that established leadership. As a three-letterman
in football, he was one of the mainstays of the Trojan line, As a trackman
and later as Track Manager, he showed his versatility in sports. On the
nightgofgghisggeoronation at the All-School Party, he was the same unaffected,
the school had admired and honored throughout his three
High-a true Trojan athlete, student, and friend to all.

Attendants to the King and
Queen of the All-School Party
are often known as Senior Favor-
ites, representing the choice of
the entire school. After a prelim-
inary nomination has been car-
ried on throughout the school,
the field is narrowed to ten boys
and ten girls. In the second bal-
loting the highest votes determine
the King and the Queen, the next
highest their- Attendants. An-
nouncement of royalty and their
retinue is the climax of the All-
School Party program.

Of all the activities throughout the school year there
is one event that every boy and girl looks forward to
eagerly. This is the All-School Party, held this year on
December 5. The introduction of the royalty was breath-
lessly awaited. Who would they be? The suspense ended
when james Brown and Gladys Hall were announced
as King and Queen. The Coronation was followed by
dancing, refreshments, and a jolly good time.

New faces are always interesting, but this
year's Sophomore class is particularly pleasing.
Its members have taken hold of Trojan ways
with unusual ease, and they never seemed
deserving of the derogatory title of "sub-scrub"
that has been applied to so many previous
classes. The Sophomores' brought with them
beauty, brains, and vitality to spare. They
have shown much school spirit, and their class
spirit was demonstrated' by an attendance in
excess of 300 at the class party january 22f
The january '42 Sophomores faced several
innovations, including "big brothers" as well
as "big sisters" and an impressive induction
ceremony. The Sophomore class sponsors this
year are Miss Frances Hutchison, Miss Alma
Calvert, Mrs. Fayeben Wolfe, Miss Bernice
Finley, E. B. Weaver, and E. L. Fink
Under the chairmanship of President Taggart the oflicers ponder over Sophomore party
plans. Left to right they are: Cadwalader, Bradstreet, Taggart, Miller, Goodrich, and Duff.

With an eventful Sophomore year behind
them, the juniors emerged as an energetic
and powerful class. An exciting election and
"Young April," the class play, filled the early
fall with activities. For the first time a junior
class aided incoming students, and they super-
vised College Day. Their Junior-Senior Prom,
given April 10, was the high light of the year.
With such a background the class may well
look forward to an even better time as Seniors.
Sponsors of the class are Miss Ruth'Phillips,
Mrs. Verna Nims, Miss Maud Hulse, Mrs.
Lucile Ely, and W. jones.

President of the Student Congress
Vice-President of the Student Congress
Speaker of the Representative Council
Secretary of the Point System
Student Congress members rolled out of bed many
a morning to reach Room 200 of Troytown by
7:30. Meetings of the Representative Council dur-
ing the first week of school worked on the election
of game cadets and the sale of activity tickets. The
Student Council left over from the year before
helped out by putting on an assembly to promote
the activity ticket. George Beverly was elected
Speaker of the House. -After a delayed election the
new Student Council took its place. Following up
campaign promises, office holders promoted var-
sities. When the All-School Party came up, sweat
ran from Bill Holliday's brow as he put over one
of the biggest parties the school has had. One of
the main issues for both houses was the bill dealing
with a colored advisory council. Many early morn-
ings were spent on this before it was voted upon
and passed, Although this year's council was not
as aggressive as some of the councils of the past, it
took care of everything as it came along without
complaint or excitement. -Frank Eckert.

The year 1942 will appear on the pages of our history texts of the future as a year
of great significance. We hope and pray it may be the year in which the death
knell is sounded for totalitarian governments, and democracy for all the peoples
of the world will become a reality. These are important days in world history,
and you are to be congratulated on having a part in formulating a better world
order. Peace and good-will can be achieved if we maintain a high sense .of the
importance of the individual personality. Selfish greed which has characterized
much of our national and international relations in the past must give way to
sounder and saner philosophy as conceived in the teachings of our Greatest
Teacher, Jesus Christ. Move forward, my young friends, with your banners high,
resolved to make life finer for everyone.

This year the editorial staff of the Sunflower has endeavored
to produce an annual that covers as broad a field of interest
as possible, appealing as much to the Sophomore and junior
as to the Senior. YVe have tried to make this book representa-
tive of Topeka High, showing the students in the many
different activities and functions of the school, both inside
and outside of the classroom. During the nine months of
preparation our foremost thought has been to please you,
the student body. YVe hope we have done so. May it serve
not only as a source of interest and pleasure now, but a
record which you can get out periodically in the years to
come and thumb through the pages, recalling the many
happy times spent in Topeka High School in 1941-42.

XVith the aim ol' making the advertising section as interesting
to students as possible-and consequently as profitable to
the advertisers as possiblevwe of the business staff of the
1942 Sunflower set out on our task last November. NVith this
aim in mind we have tried to make pages attractive by planned
layouts and the use of student pictures. The 1942 book has
more pictures of students in the ads than ever before. XVhat-
ever success we have attained, however, we owe to the business
men and women of Topeka, who have stood behind us faith-
fully, even with stocks "frozen" and all business war-ridden.
XVe extend them our sincerest thanks. YVe urge readers of
this hook to make these friends know "It pays to advertise

W.P.A. Week, hobo varsities, a red-hot All-School
Party, a sizzling junior Play, a wild Homecoming,
and the excitement of the biggest election in our
history gave plenty of fire to Fall headlines. A
streamer glorified the Homecoming issueg pub-
licity on the All-School Party took the form of a
special edition. Trojan Teasers, without an editor,
went past expectationsg Periscope, running a little
gay at times, did better than hold its own, a real
challenge to the Spring editors. Lastly, the Fall
World was put out with a variety of student pic-
tures, made possible through plentiful advertising.

VV1th an army camp as the setting, the All-School Party of 1941 proved
o , ,gg 33211. a hilarious success! Army l1le at its best was portrayed by the stagger-
ing sentinel, Clarence Alarrell, and by potato peeler, Bill YVebb. Ned
9 115' Fleming caused many moments of high tension when he tried to
Q retrieve a home-knit sweater from the camp hostess, alias Dale Briman.
YV. N. Van Slyck and H. Hoehner were joined together in holy
a wedlock by the "Rev." Sol DZ Dice, after a triumphal march down
the aisle, assisted by two graceful and charming flower girls, better
3 0 known as S. H. Stark and E. B. YVeaver, and a devoted mother by
' the name of F. A. McCoy. The climax came when eight Trojan
X favorites were introduced to reign over this All-School Party, con-
' W trary to the traditional six. Isabel Neiswanger and jim Brier were
chosen Queen and King. Betty Chubb, .lean Kerns, Betty Pressman,
George Beverly, Frank Eckert, and Terry McAdam were their at-
' tendants. The colored students chose Gladys Hall as their Queen,
Q Q and James Brown as their King. Attendants were Virginia -Iolly,
Norma Jean YVheeler, Leonard Pryor, and Bob Reed. Folk dancing,
moving pictures, bingo, and countless other attractions supplied every
party-goer with entertainment throughout an evening of merriment.

Christmas pageant theme was Wlforship
Through the Ages." As always, however, it was
a rhapsody of color, music, and beauty. YVith its broad-
ened conception of worship, it brought the true Christmas spirit
to all. In the opening scene an Indian chanted his praises to the rising
sun and worshiped with his fire dance. Hanukkah, or the Hebrew's "Feast ol
the Lights," came next, impressive in its serenity. Following were tableaux of relig-
ious paintings, 'AThe Nativityf, "Modern Conception of a Heavenly Choir," "Sistine Ma-
donna," and "Saint Cecilia at the Organ." Organ music, singing of familiar carols, rich costumin
and elaborate sets made this a memorable pageant. '

"Young April" delighted a large audience the eve-
ning of November 21. There was never a dull
moment as Professor and Mrs. Mclntyre struggled
with the problems of their children, George and
Terry. Margaret USoosie" Milam leaped from one
love affair to another in her realistic performance
as the perturbed Terry. Georges romantic en-
tanglements, interpreted with a professional touch
by Jack Main, were equally numerous. Bethel
Hecht came across with a sympathetic portrayal of
Mrs. Mclntyre. The kindly Professor, slightly
absent-minded, was played convincingly by Kirke
Mechem. A. patio in California aFforded a lovely

the hilarious play put on by the Senior class May l.
Life was hectic for Broadway star Maggie Garrett,
brilliantly interpreted by Dixie Parker, when Dan

of a fascinating tramp steamer, appeared on the
scene. Dan and Maggie played "Romeo and ,lu-

Unlucky Friday, March I3! YVhat atmosphere
could be'more Htting for a mystery-comedy
like "Through the Night"P YVedding plans
were shattered that night, that night when the
notorious "Owl" planned a robbery and a
murderer struck his deadly blow. The audi-
ence saw it happen. They shuddered as they
witnessed the fatal stab. They watched ex-
citedly as the characters on the stage solved
the mystery, and sighed when the true lovers
were safely matched. Gloria Gray and Jack
Main, or "Sayre" and "Bunny," both starring
in romantic leads for the second time this
year, scored another hit. Bill Lentz as the
murderer, interpreted his part with precision.
Comedy was supplied by Delores Johnson, the

How do Trojans get their noon meal? This way:
Hosts and Hostesses are excused a few minutes
early so they may check in, purchase their dinner,
and be seated at their' tables before the others ar-
rive. As the last hell rings, four lines rapidly file
in. Each ravenous Trojan gets his tray and moves
down the counter to select his lunch. In less than
fifteen minutes the'four lines have disappeared,
and everyone is sitting with his friends discussing
the latest news. Since each of the three lunch
periods is thirty-Five minutes long, Trojans have
time after eating to mingle with the crowd, either
in the halls or on the front veranda.

W. N. VAN SLYCK
With W. N. Van Slyck, principal, as their chair-
man, the four administrators of Topeka High
School worked tirelessly through the school year
to make student life happy and purposeful. A
new counselling plan, under consideration for
many months, was inaugurated in an effort to
help each student decide upon his life work and
choose his courses accordingly. An induction
ceremony for incoming Sophomores provided
a welcome not extended in other years. Student
government became more real because the ad-
ministrators encouraged students to bring school
problems into the open for discussion and solu-
tion. Teachers formed study groups to consider
better methods. junior Red Cross was installed.
Classes gave service to civilian defense work.
These things result from able leadership on the
part of Topeka High executives.

W'ith the close of school this year comes the rea
tirement of Superintendent A. ml. Stout, for 23
years the executive head of the Topeka school
system. After teaching physics in Topeka High
from 1899 to 1909, Mr. Stout became principal.
In 1918 he advanced to the superintendency.
Because of his keen interest in the high school
of which he had been a part, Mr. Stout has kept
in close touch with its faculty, its courses, and
student activities. XVhile he always found time
to attend school functions, he rarely took a va-
cation except to attend educa-
tional conferences or to do
JK summer study. All city schools
will miss Mr. Stout: but To-
peka High will miss him not
only as a kindly administrator,
but as an enthusiastic and loyal

Coach "Ernie" Vanek guides the boys
through a successful year
Though the 1941-42 season was the first in Coach Ernest Vanek's re-
gime as basketball mentor at Topeka High, it was one he, his team,
and the whole student body may be proud of. Of all scheduled games
Trojans won ll, losing only five. The season started slowly. Most of
the team Was new to the first string. Only Ed Hailey and George Bev-
erley had had conspicuous playing experience. However, it was not
long before Coach Vanek's mentorship made itself evident. Trojan
courtmen were playing a faster, trickier game. Coach Vanek, who for-
merly played under "Phog" Allen at K. U., built his attack and defense
around his boys, style of playing. Fred First and -lim Tyree, scat for-
wards, were always shooting under the opponent's basket, ready to
take expert passes from the deliberate Beverley and Hailey. Rangy
Bob Powell consistently annoyed the enemy with his long reach. He
led the season scoring, closely followed by Beverley, Tyree, and First.
Gradually the Topeka team worked itself into the spot it so highly
deserved among the top teams in the state. After a brilliant season
came the State Tournament. By eliminating Argentine from the Re-
gionals, the Trojan five were ready for the toughest the state had to
offer. In the first round junction City fell before a Trojan scoring
drive that piled up a total of 46 to 22. McPherson followed Junction
City to defeat, but only after a hard, close game that ended 35 to 33.
In the third round Topeka lost to Winfield, the team that was to emerge
second place winner. Topeka Finished fourth in the 1942 State Basket-

From a nucleus of four returning lettermen: Coach Lloyd Kistler built this year's Rambler team.
Orville Brown, Bob Reed, Bill Gaines, and Ed Love, who lettered at Atchison the year before, were
the four lettermen. The season started with the team colder than the proverbial Polar bear. As a
result it dropped two games in succession, the first to the Kansas Vocational School 32-28, and the
second to Atchison 39-18. However, as the team developed, it came back to win one from Leaven-
worth and another from R. T. Co1e's school in Kansas City. This made the record just even. The
league-leading Bartlett team from St. Joe invaded Rambler home territory and went away victor-
ious, 34-28. To avenge this defeat, the Topeka team journeyed to Lawrence and defeated the local
team there. The Ramblers gave Leavenworth a second drubbing, 20-185 but Bartlett returned, and
again Coach Kist1er's men tasted defeat, this time to the tune of 43-17. Playing Northeast of Kansas
City, Kansas, Orville Brown piled up a scoring record of 19 pointsg but, despite this, the opposing
team won, 34-28. R. T. Cole's team, looking for revenge, appeared and defeated the Ramblers, 29-22.
Again the Topeka team avenged its defeat by beating Lawrence for the second time. The season
closed after Northeast and Atchison had defeated the Ramblers for the second time. Out of 12 league
games the Ramblers Won live and lost seven.

Nl his kindness and fairness have made him a favorite with both the pupils and the
faculty of Topeka High School.

Intramural football consists of four teams:
the Reds, the Blues, the Yellows, and the
Greens. Provided with equipment by the
Physical Education Department and coached
by H. D. Shotwell and Carl P. Snyder, the
teams play a double round robin. An All-
Star team is chosen from the best players of
the intramural season. Captains of the four
teams this year follow: Jim Pipkin, captain of
the Greensg Alfred Griffen, captain of the
Blues, WValter Reich, captain of the Reds: and
Bob Maze, captain of the Yellows. The Reds
finished first in the leagtbe, with the Yellows
Champs of the junior-Senior Intramural Basketball League: Eakms
Howard, Thorne, Springer. Coulter. Maupin
close behind, while the Blues and Greens tied.
"Swede" Ericson and Dave Maze were the
high scorers, each having scored 18 points dur-
ing the regular season. Climaxing the season,
the Intramural All-Stars played the Emporia
B team at Chandler Field. The game was a
clear victory for the Trojans, as the All-Stars
blanked Emporia, 7-0. YVith the ending of
home room basketball, intramural basketball
assumed new importance. Two leagues were
established, one for Sophomores and one for
Seniors and juniors. Each team was known
by number and elected its own captain. In
the Sophomore league the captains were Craw-
ford, Fleer, Vickers, Reaser, Engle, Rogers,
YVilson and Spillmer. Junior-Senior captains
were Brown, Kunkler, Coble, Peterson, Maze,
Farmer, Hupp, and Hartman. In the Sophoa
more leage, Teams VI and VII were the two
high teams, tying for first place. In the Alunior-
Senior league, Team VII won.

Paced by two returning lettermen, the Trojan
trackmen started the season by taking three
straight firsts. The first, a match against High-
land Park High, provided little in the way of
opposition. The second match was the Inter-
City meet, where teams from Seaman, Capitol
Catholic, YVashburn, and Topeka High con-
tested. Trojans emerged with a conspicuous
first here, too. Logan Miller carried away Firsts
in century, furlong, and quartermile dashes.
Bob VanDeventer, husky weight man, broke the
Topeka High record by heaving the 12 pound
ball 50 feet 'ZW inches. XVyandotte, Manhattan,
and Wamego all bowed to give the thinclads
their third successive victory at a quadrangular
meet in Manhattan. This match was close, with
Topeka pulling down GQMZ points while YVyan-
dotte followed closely with 68. At the K. U.
Relays the Trojans got third place, bowing to
Hutchison and YVichita East. In the state cham-
pionship 88-yard relay, Topeka took a close
second with Logan Miller, anchor man, pressing
close on the heels of the Hutchinson man. By
the end of the season the "Erwinites" showed

Entering the third year of its existence, the
Topeka High baseball team promised to be
the best in history. Coach C. A. Hays was
devoting all his time to the varsity squad, and
Charles Mills was in charge of a more complete
intramural program. Taking advantage of the
wildness of the opposing pitcher, the Trojan
batsman walloped their first opponent, WVich-
ita East. After going through four innings
without a hit, the Trojans started their scoring
drive when Kanatzar was hit by a wild pitch
and then stole second. Chappell and Powell
each stole second, and Tyree lined a double
Ollt through center. Lanky Pitcher Bob Powell
gave up only hve hits, walking four men and
striking out ten. The game ended with the
local boys leading, 9-5. Topeka I-Iigh's third
baseball team has set a standard of sports-
manship and ability that will set future teams
a fast pace indeed!

From the beginning it was evident that the l942 Tennis team
was going to be one of the best in years. The men were well
matched and positions were hard fought for. The number
one and two men, Kirke Mechem and Les Haslett, were so
evenly matched that Coach NV. Barnett hesitated to assign
either one to first place. Howard Swartzman held down
number three position without opposition, but joe Springer
and Bob Taggart were continually exchanging for the num-
ber four and live spots. Starting the season with a victory
against Wyandotte, the Trojan netmen went on to polish
off Argentine of the same city. The rest of the season was
equally difhcult, with matches against YVestport of Kansas
City, Mo., Kemper and YVentworth Military Academies, and
a return engagement with Wyandotte.

The Topeka High debate team clirnaxed its highly successful season by winning the 1942 Kansas State
Championship. After the first of the year, Trojan debaters won five straight tournaments. They started
claiming first place trophies at the Wyandotte tournamentg then followed with victories at Emporia,
Valley Falls, the state district, and the state tournament. During the season the squad, including Jun-
iors and Sophomores as well as Seniors, under the direction of P. B. Graves, attended eight tournaments,
winning 132 debates and losing 40. The state team included jim Davidson, Don Dustin, Albert Wessen,
and Howard Swartzman. Debaters winning the degree of distinction in the National Forensic League
were Don Dustin, jim Davidson, Bob Meyer, Bill Sellen, Howard Swartzman, Warren Walker, and Al-
bert Wessen. Jim Davidson was president of the Topeka chapter of the National Forensic League, and
Don Dustin its' secretary. A picture of the chapter appeared in The Rostrum, ollicial publication, as
the leading chapter 'in Kansas. Mr. Graves, who has been handling forensics in Topeka High for the
past three years, is retiring from debate after becoming one of the '
outstanding Kansas debate coaches.

Who sell the tickets, guard the gates,
and 'account for the ticket sales for
each game? NVhy, the Game Cadets,
of course! S. H. Stark, vice-principal,
introduced the plan of having students
manage the ticket sales. The Cadets
were chosen early last Fall by the Rep-
resentative Council. Accounting for
the tickets includes many letters and
reports besides counting money and
tickets. For this work they were
awarded one and a half points toward
their Honor T.
Scuttling cokes, rustling hot dogs,
and trading candy bars for nickels
at football and basketball games
kept concession stand workers busy
this year. Students interested in do-
ing this type of work signed up early
last fall. Those chosen received ac-
tivity tickets for their time. Bruce
Smith was faculty sponsor.

Washburn Municipal University was the first in this section of the
country to streamline its schedule in order to reduce the amount of
time required to earn a degree.

Summer session announcements and the university catalog will be
supplied gladly on request.
