Threugh all the Seasons, she remains a symbol, the four points of her tower signifying leadership, scholar- ship, citizenship, and honor. To us who love her, she is ageless. Though years may crumble her walls, and countless millions of feet wear away her marble stairways, through the years the memories we carry with us will keep her always as she is today . . . noble, fine, and beautiful.

At their Hrst meeting, members elected Neil, speaker, Dean Smith, vice-speakerg Nancy Taggart, Secretary, and- Geraldine Dykes, treasurer.

Throughout the year, they serve as hostesses, guides and aides for various events. "Sugar 'n Spice" meetings-all-girl gatherings-attract crowds with topics on "The Ideal Boy" and "The Ideal Girl."

During the half, gaily colored balloons and enthusiastic cheers replaced the rumors when the football players' choice was revealed as Bonnie Frommer, Homecoming Queen, and attendants as Evelyn Stahl and Gerry Dykes. The honored girls were escorted to the throne, especially made for the event, by Carl Seufert, President of the Student Congress, Neil McNeill, Speaker of the House of Repre- sentatives, and Bob Bradstreet, Vice-President of the Student Congress. They were given the traditional chrysanthemums, and then were escorted to a reserved box in the bleachers where they viewed the rest of the game. Our opponent for the evening, lVyandotte High School, was invited to attend the varsity following the game. Homecoming royalty with escorts Bob Bradstreet, Carl Seufert, and Neil McNeill, enjoy cokes at Homecoming Varsity roy c osos victorious season in FCQTBALL Quick opening plays of the T formation set the keynote of the Trojan offense this year. With speedsters Dean Boyles and Rollo Gurss toting the ball and a light, fast charging line up front, Trojan fans never lacked action, whether in home games at the Moore Bowl or on out-of-town fields. ' On the power side Troy had driving Dick Lyle operating from the fullback slot, and a pair of huge tackles in Sophomore Darrell Hill and Senior George Kisner, both tipping the beam over 200 pounds. Consistent ground gainer for the gridsters was the fundamental line buck with the half- back going over guard. The only really intri- cate play was the crossblocking by the line- men against heavier opponents. Relying mostly on fundamentals, the '48 Trojan gridders gave the enthusiastic crowds plenty to yell about.

K fs 35 a S5 Troj an griclders With one of the lightest and least experienced teams in rea- cent years to work with, Varsity Coaches Bob Briggs and Mel Seelye molded a grid aggregation which ranked fifth best among all AA schools in Kansas. Trojans started slow, losing their first two, but after trouncing Emporia 19-0 went on to win six of the next seven games to bring their record up to seven won and three lost for the season. The Hutchinson Salt Hawk's double wing offense proved too much for the Trojans their first time out as Topeka went down 14-12 at Hutchinson. Dean Boyles salvaged some glory for Troy by taking a kickoff on his own ten yard line and racing the remaining 90 yards for a touchdown. Finally breaking into the win column, Topeka romped over Emporia 19-0, and then traveled to Kansas City to trounce Ward High 20-O. stx Y 0 Qgf.

The Wyandotte game ended the regular season, but, be- cause of its good record, Topeka was asked to play in a post season game Thanksgiving Day at Clay Center. Proving worthy of their invitation, Trojans rolled over their hosts 27-14 to wind up play for the season. Three Trojan gridders won recognition for their play in the 1948 season. Cofaptain John Knoll copped the First team All-State center berth, and haliback Dean Boyles and end Bill Roberts were voted to the Third All-State team. In amassing their record scores for the year, Topeka used many underclassmen. Sixteen squad members are returning to bolster Troy's hopes for next season.

GAME CADETS Selling and taking tickets at basketball and .football games, and selling programs too, the Game Cadets organized this year with Ken- neth Powers as their faculty leader. Indispensable to the organizing of games, the Game Cadets had an eventful season with both the ihome games and the Regionals in basketball being held here. INKSLINGERS Fourteen boys taking printing and making above average grades in the subject this year formed a club called the Inkslingers. The boys, sponsored by Francis D. Modlin, printing instructor, had the job of doing special printing, such as basketball and play programs. The Inkslingersl Club is on its way to becoming a lasting Trojan in- stitution. USHER CLUB Mrs. Marvin H. Hess, Sponsor, says that the Usher Club's 50 mem- bers are chosen with an eye to their ability to smile. This ability is evident whenever a school play, a concert, a touring play, or any other function takes place in the auditorium. The club is an ex- cellent example of real 'Acourtesy kids" who serve the school faith- fully and well.

Meeting us our first week at school was the bar- gain sale of Activity tickets, plus the news of var- ious summer activities. In the next few weeks, election fever rose to its highest pitch, and all the girls had a Hwacky party." After the voters once again had cast their ballots, the juniors took over and presented a masterful production of "junior Miss." And Senior Gene Gooding stole the show! P. S.-The gals paid, this week. With their consecutive victory string at three, the football squad chose Bonnie Frommer as Homecoming Queen with attendants Gerry Dykes and Evelyn Stahl also watching the Trojans pick up their sixth win of the season, After the "best All-School party program in years," the coronation of Queen Jeanne Bowman and,King john Knoll took the spotlight. The coronation proved a fitting climax to a "perfect" evening. These events and others like them afforded the material from which the fall World staff, Walter Menninger, Editor, and Donna Deck, Business Manager, fashioned news for you for a semester.

Among the after-school activities, tournaments were held in soccer, volleyball, basketball, ping- pong, archery, bowling, softball, badminton, and deck tennis. In these intramurals there have been more participants and interest shown than in the first two years. Swimming and tumbling clubs also had 'many entrants. Troy Janes also opened a snack bar in the main hall after school. Senior Leaders, girls outstanding in physicial education, were on hand to help in every ac- tivity. The club is sponsored by Miss Mildred Wells and Miss Ruth jacob, Physical Educa- tion teachers. Like a flashback to pioneer days, the Troy jane Husking Bee overtook Topeka High on the evening of November 12. Upon coming in the door, girls were greeted by the smell of fresh baled hay and buttered popcorn, while juke box music set all feet to tapping. l30l ampaign stunts liven ELECTIQ TIME Election time, and what a contest! Posters re- placed plaster, shy sophs became orators, speeches filled the October air-the race was on for the many oflices open to the students of Topeka High. Candidates went about campaigning in a vigorous way, leaving no ear undeafened to promises and pleas. Under the authority of Hugh Greer, Election Commissioner, assisted by Sally Morrison, Elec- tion Clerk, Miss Ethel Frizell, Faculty Adviser, and the student election boards, the election moved smoothly along. The primary served to narrow the Field, making competition just that much keener. After the thrills provided by ties and one-vote margins, the final election was awaited in excited anticipation. Then came the big day, with the usual smiles, tears, handshaking, and congratulations. It was all overg it was all wonderful, it was all truly American in sincerity, fun, and sportsmanship.

Our Sophomore year was one new experience after another. Seems that we never got breathing space. First came enrollment-those big halls and BIG Seniors. Our hrst thought was, "Help! 1'll get lost!" but soon We were as experienced at hall wandering as the Seniors themselves. We had our first Hnals. VVe came through them, weak but alive, in time to see our first operetta, "Sweethearts" We attended all the class plays, too, and we still have those dog-eared programs. Yes, our Sophomore year was hectic but fun. ' 1: " . 9: -V s:.' ss?

After football and basketball games, Trojans and guests trooped down to the cafeteria where icy cokes, fresh buttered pop corn and Hjust right" juke box music greeted them. From then on, the evening progressed from impromptu square dances, Charle- ston and Rhumba solos in admiring circles, and the Sophomore "Balboa" specialties, to dreamy last dances with muted music announcing the end. Outstanding in the minds of all who at- tended them, the Topeka High varsities are remembered as times of fun and friendly comradeship.

Inside activities include volley ball, basket- ball, and square dancing, with each sport re- ceiving .one six-weeks' period. Softball and fieldh k' ' oc ey are played outside on warm days, while the skills of these sports are practiced in the girls' gym.

Topeka garnered first place trophies in the Atchi- son and District tournaments, and placed fifth in the state. Competing in tournaments where as many as 75 teams were entered, besides winning two, the de- baters placed third at Emporia, third at YVyan- dotte, and fourth at Hutchinson. This year's question for debate was, "Resolved: that the United Nations now be revised into a federal world government." Coach Walter Rus- sell's two-speaker team lost only seven of 45 debates during the season. First team: Bob Bradstreet, Walter Menninger, Katrina Swartz, john Carlson JU IOR RED CROSS JUNIOR RED CROSS Organized as a service group to aid in the in- terests of the Red Cross at Topeka High School, the Junior Red Cross Council has done every- thing from planning and staging assemblies to packing a chest for overseas. Officers include Bob Bradstreet, Presidentg Marilyn Miller, Vice-Presi- dentg jack Green, Secretaryg and Miss Ruth Gran- don, sponsor. The chapter this spring entertained at luncheon the editor of the national Junior Red Cross publi- cationsg student and faculty representatives from grade and junior highs also were present.

The story of this miracle formed the theme of our 1948 Christmas pageant. As the scene opened in an average American home, we heard a mother reading to her child. Magically the curtain drew back, revealing pictures of these ceremonies in France, England, and Mexico. Lilting strains of the "Nutcracker Suite" fur- nished a background for the fairy tale ballet where Christmas toys come alive and dance. Lastly, we saw the beloved scene of the Nativity-- the lowly manger and the tiny Babe. Carols from the combined choruses Hlled our ears. Our Christ- mas pageant with its beauty of meaning brought to Troy the true spirit of peace and good will. as m tw 365 chilli um fulfil aC X .

After the first balloting to decide the King, Queen, and attendants, the five top-rank- ing boys and five top girls were voted on again. Much speculation resulted about the outcome of the voting, but the results were kept secret until the night of the party. After the last act in the program, "newsboy', johnny Reppart came on the stage announcing that Topeka High's royalty had been chosen. Bob Soulen, act- ing as announcer, came forward to the mike and introduced the royalty as they emerged from the versatile juke box.

Then followed jancy, Hunter and Rollo Gurss, Suzanne Sutherin and Jerry Getz, Bon- nie Frommer and Bill Roberts. Rambler attendants were Bettie Tumbleson and jack Alexander, Mary Mfashington and Arnold l-lodison. Rambler Queen Madalyn Bryant then came forward with King Richard Doug- las.

The basketballers provided Troy fans plenty of thrills, however, with four overtime contests and many others nearly as close. The Trojans were defeated decisively only a few times, but seemed to lack the power to come through in the tight ones. Having only Bill Roberts and Bob McCracken measuring over six feet tall to begin with, the Trojans found rebounds even harder to get after they lost Roberts because of a knee injury.

The Rambler five, led by Coach Merrill Ross, finished in a three- way tie for fourth place in the conference with R. T. Cole and Parsons. The Ramblers blew hot and cold over the season, but did well considering they had lost most of their starters from last season. Most of the Rambler l.osses were by small scores, and the season was packed with many thrills. jack Alexander led the Ramblers in scor- ing with a total of 122 points.

Albert Silk Coal Co. 1 1 X - ' 41281 YOUR OWN UN AIRPLANE VIEW OF WASHBURN UNIVERSITY Washburn is set in an attractive place, framed by a landscape of cedars and old elm, and vignetted by the customary ivy Following the tradition of liberal education long established in this country, Washburn aims to graduate men and women who are intellectually competent and emotionally mature, qualihed for both leadership and discriminating cooperation. New courses in professional training, such as the Bachelor of Business Adminis- tration, enable students to prepare effectively for the demands of a new world. The College of Liberal Arts is accredited by the Kansas State Board of Educa- tion, the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, and the Association of American Universities. Washburn alumnae are admitted to mem- bership in the American Association of University Women. The School of Law is a member of the Association of American Law Schools, and conforms to its standards of excellence in library, teaching staff, and scholarship. The school is also on the list approved by the American Bar Association. Its loca- tion in the capital city provides students opportunity to attend and observe thc procedure of a variety of courts, and the chance to meet and become acquainted with the best minds of the legal profession to be found in Kansas. An enlarged faculty keeps Washburn classes small and individual contacts pos- sible. A very important part of education takes place through an informal inter- mingling of students and faculty in a democratic atmosphere. The new Student Building will contribute greatly to a finer student spirit on the Washburn campus. Summer session announcements and the University catalog will be supplied upon request.
