From the first day of school in the Fall, when
Topeka High,'s grounds are strewn with russet
leaves, through the Winter, when the snow-capped
tower lifts its head maiestically against the gray
sky, and when Spring's first warm breath lures the
flowering crab trees along the walks into brilliant
bloom, Topeka High's beauty is constant. 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.

An integral part of Topeka High's student government is
the Representative Council. Guided by Miss Lois Fergus,
Faculty Sponsor, and headed by Speaker Neil McNeill, this
Council functions in a similar manner to the United States
House of Representatives.
Composed of 66 homeroom representatives, the Council
meets once a month. At their Hrst meeting, members elected
Neil, speaker, Dean Smith, vice-speakerg Nancy Taggart,
Secretary, and- Geraldine Dykes, treasurer.
Since legislation concerning money originates in the House
of Representatives, similarly the Representative Council Was
responsible for the sale of Activity tickets, of which a total

SE IOR GIRLS' COUNCILS
As an all-around service group, Senior Girls' Council has
put forth its time to make successful such activities as the
Sophomore Induction, the Sophomore Tea, and Open House.
Chosen for their leadership and scholastic ability, the 34
girls are under the guidance and sponsorship of Miss Annau
bel Pringle, Dean of Girls. 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." Senior Girls' Council members are on hand for the
Vesper Tea at graduation time, the All-Girl Party, and Col-
lege Day activities.
Working along with the council is the Senior Girls' Ad-
visory Council, chosen also for leadership. Composed of I6
members, these girls Worked more individually, but each
council has set forth' thervarious activities as its responsibil-
ities and has won honor for its service.

HOMECOMI G GAME
Preceding the Homecoming game, the air
was thick with speculation concerning the
identity of the Homecoming Queen and her
attendants. 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
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.

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. '

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.

Great Bend's Panthers went down before Topeka 14-6,
and the Trojans made their Homecoming a success by whip-
ping Wyandotte 20-7.
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.

Made up of boys lettering in sports, the HTH
Club of Topeka High School provides an
organization of some 50 boys. "T" Club
initiation is one of the highlights of the year,
with initiates being made to do Whatever the
members tell them to. Between the hard
work and time put in to earn a "TH sweater,
and the good-natured hazing just before the
initiation, membership into the club is con-

Much credit for seasons scores goes to
Men behind the sport scene at Topeka
High are the coaches.
Head coaches had assistance from faculty
men who spent much of their time aside from
their regular teaching duties helping the
mentors mold their teams.
Bob Briggs took over the head football
coach's job with Mel Seelye assisting with
the varsity. Marvin Bayless, and Vernon
Hayes guided the "B" and "C" teams with
the assistance of james Colton, Chet Daven-
port, Robert Gray, Lloyd Kistler, and Leo
Chet Davenport continued being head
cage coach with Mel Seelye taking over the
D. L. Erwin, led the track team, while swim-
ming coach Chuck Mills and Bob Briggs
helped with the cindermen.

Taking tickets at plays, handing out programs, and seeing that the
mechanics of the arrangements for plays are carried out srnoothlv,
the Play Cadets this year are to be commended for their unfailing
and trustworthy work. Miss Evelyn McCauley was faculty sponsor.
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.
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-
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.

"No matter how young a prune may be he's

Hilarious youth at its gayest was the theme of
the play, "Junior Missf' sponsored by the Junior
YVith Pat Kirk interpreting the role of captivate
ing Judy Graves and Marilyn Towler in the part
of her chum, Fuffy Adams, teen-age life was viewed
from every possible angle.
Judy cavorted through episodes ranging from an
"ex-criminal"' uncle to her hrst pair of heels and
coped admirably with all situations.
The entire cast was on its toes to keep the
audience charmed by the delightful antics of such
characters as Hilda, Lois Graves, and B. Curtis.
The use of Gene Gooding, a Senior, as Harry
Graves, sets a new precedent in Topeka High's
dramatic world. It is the beginning of a plan to
combine the drama clubs with the classes, thus
providing even better plays on the stage of Topeka
High School in the future.

One of the highest honors that may be at-

the International Honorary Society of High
School Journalists, Quill and Scroll. Only
those associated with high school publications,
either the annual or the newspaper, are
eligible for membership. Each student nomi-

While scurrying after ads, identifying
names, typing, folding papers, and doing
various other jobs, members of the Junior

has completed its third year of existence.
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.

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.

THE SQPHQMORE CLASS
The Sophomore class of '51, that's us! 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.

from impromptu square dances, Charle-

to dreamy last dances with muted music
announcing the end.

As YVinter lies between Fall and Spring, so the Junior class
is the 'Amiddlel' class at T.H.S. The newness of belonging is
gone but the thrill is still here. YVe've sponsored our first
play, two wonderful formals, the junior-Senior Prom-and
they've been smashing sueeesses.
YVe've seen our teams through-victory and defeat, and
we've laughed and joked with the rest of the school. XVe've
had a swell time being "middle-of-the-roadn Juniors.
Mrs. Fayeben Wolfe at mid-year served as Junior Sponsor
in place of Miss Irene Kloppenberg, who taught afternoon
classes at Boswell Junior High.

As the scene opened in an average American

to Troy the true spirit of peace and good will.

Big moment discloses
Tension was great during the weeks
leading up to the All-School Party. 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.

attendants were Bettie Tumbleson and

las. The climax was reached when

MADALYN BRYANT, even in her junior year, entered the ranks of royalty when she was chosen
Rambler Homecoming Queen. This year she was elected Rambler Pep Club President and served ac-
tively in the Phyllis YVheatley Girl Reserves. ln view of her many honors and her winning personality,
Madalyn was deservedly elected to this crowning honor-Rambler Queen of the All-School Party.
RICHARD DOUGLAS, Rambler King of the All-School Party, this year took over the reins of the
Colored Advisory Council and served as its President, discharging his duties always with skill, good judg-
melnt, and cheerfulness. For two years a member of the Rambler basketball team, Richard showed that in
athletics, as well as in social life and school government, he really is a king.

' ' TEAM
Playing perhaps the toughest schedule in the state, Topeka high
school's cagers were able to garner only a 7-won and 12-lost record
for the year. 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.

Whether at basketball or football
games, Trojan pep hit high tempos this
year, with spectators and cheerleaders
doing an exhausting job of cheering for
Tiopeka's teams. From old standbys like
'iRica Chica Boomi' and "Gold, Black,
We're back of You" to new chants like
'iliittle Wildcats, Whee-e-e-e, Big Tro-
jans, Wow ! I," cheering progressed
through the year, aided by the tireless
work of the cheerleaders and pep clubs.
Organized for timing, the pep clubs'
cheering even turned to a sing-song
i'Open the Windows" when the gym-
nasium got too stuffy, and clapping in

Topeka High's Ramblers finished the 1948-
49 basketball season with a creditable record
of seven wins and seven losses against some of
the best squads in the area. 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. Harold Wash-
ington was second with 86 tallies, while
Qharles Douglas and Gilbert Carter were
third and fourth with 81 and 80 points re-

"In your Easter Bonnet, with all the frills upon
it," you'll be decked out as the Juniors were on
the night of the junior-Senior Prom.
John H. Hoehner and his stagecraft class outdid
themselves and succeeded in reproducing a teeming
section of Fifth Avenue on Troy's own stage.
jack Perry's sidewalk cafe had much to offer in
the way of entertainment. Tap dancing by Muriel
Dexter afforded Dick Dennis his opportunity for
hilarious pantomine, which he continued to supply
throughout the show. I
Changing the mood, Charles Axton delivered
an engaging discourse on "Sally of Our Alley,"
with self-accompaniment on the ivories.
The surprise of .the evening came when Miss
Ethel l'An-wanw" Frizell marched onto the stage,
complete with her Christmas tree.
Amos Howard ended the program with the
"You'll be the Sweetest Lady in the Easter Paradef'
then the Prom continued in the cafeteria.
Under the general direction of Annette Huke
and faculty adviser Mrs. Fayeben Wolfe, the
juniors "Easter Paraded" through a fine prom,
Iuniors and Seniors mingle and the cafeteria
is filled with rustling skirts and gay music

Snakes, fireworks, and a kitten named Groucho were all a part of the crazy
combination that made the Senior play, "You Gan't Take It With You," the
laugh hit of the year.
The plot centered around the eccentric Sycamore family, headed by
6 Ame fllffgti Grandpa QYValter Menningerj and the one sensible daughter, portrayed by
1-owl Tw Esske an Ardith jones, in love with the boss's son Tony QBob Bradstreetj.
women Penny QMartha Herrickj and Mr. DePinna QCarl Seufertj brought roars
of laughter from the audience. To the satisfaction of all, a happy ending
was finally managed. Long hours of work put in by the cast, staffs, Miss
Gertrude Wheeler, dramatics director, and Miss Ruth Grandon, in charge
of business, accounted for the success of the play. Staging was done by KI. H.
Hoehner and the stage craft classes.

Under the coaching of Charles Mills, Troy's four-
teen man swimming team participated in eight meets
this year. This is the fourth year Topeka High School
has entered in this sport. Skip Dickinson, placed
second at the state meet in the 100 yard breast stroke.
Floyd Holcomb, wrestling coach, guided the wrest-
ling team through winter meets and early spring en-
counters. Wrestling both -on the home mats and in
out-of-town schools, the team displayed skill and ever-
increasing good sportmanship.
Starting to train while snow still lined the side-
walks around Troy, the track team showed up favor-
ably in meets all through the season. On April 22,
at the K.U. Relays for High Schools, Topeka won
third place. D. L. Erwin took over the reins again
this year as coach.

Coached by W. J. Barnett, the 1949 tennis team
continued its brilliant record, giving every indication
of retaining the state championship it has held for
many years. Phil Blackburn, Terry jaquith, Richard
Hadley, and Charles Keith started the season with
straight wins. Even Hutchinson, with its top-notch
players, failed to break the string of victories.
E. L. Fink, faculty sponsor for the golf squad,
started his proteges out right with a 12-0 Win over
Leavenworth April 1. The season continued to be
predominantly successful, with stiff competition in
almost every meet. Bill Barter, Dale Higgs, Lee
Neeley, and Connie Sneller were the Star linksmen.
Playing home games at Washburn University and
making a good showing at out-of-'town games, the
Topeka High baseball team, under the tutelage of

This is your Sunflower. Its purpose is to follow the
sunshine of your school days as faithfully as the flower
for which it is named follows the sun. We hope that
when you open your annual, whether it is today or a
decade hence, bright, golden memories will come forth
to delight you, that your years at Troy will be restored.
The problems and responsibilities of editing the an-
nual were shouldered by Jeanne Bowman, Editor, Vir-
ginia Bartos, Associate Editor, Jane Romig, Business
Manager, and Miss Ruth E. Hunt, Sponsor and Advisor.
Late hours, sighs of relief, and a restful feeling of
success are a part of the finished yearbook. Your Sun-
flower comes to you with the wish that each leaf may be
as gay, as sad, and as wonderful as your youth-a bou-
quet of remembrances from the 1949 Sunflower staff.

Of Course the oenior holds in memory dear
The proms, the plays, the dances bright and gay
The parties where the King and Queen held sway
The football games, and all the rousing cheer
Oi campaign stunts when voting day was near:
And he'll remember all along the way,,
The iriends he knew and every happy day
Spent underneath the tower his Senior yeary
And most of all he'll cherish lessons learned
ln classrooms and athletic contests ritep
For in the struggles here the victories earned
Send him toward worthy goals of larger strife,
The golden helmet on his heart has burned
And Troian valor he can hold for life.

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.
