Friendly halls we walked each hour--the
echoing gym we filled with rising chants of the
"Black" and "Cold" at our games-the noisy
cafeteria where we ate our lunch and shared
the tables with our friends each noon-they
are empty now. The year is ended, but we
shall always remember . . . the spontaneous
laughter, the sense of oneness, the very spirit
that was us and that belonged solely to THS.

ADMINISTRATDRS LEND HELPING HANDS
Happy, satisfied students and a well functioning high school are the aims of our adminis-
tration. ln addition to long advanced planning of the activities for each school year-both
curricular and extra-curricular-they are always ready to extend a helping hand whether it be
to express a word of encouragement or to help us select the correct subjects to take as we
prepare socially and scholastically to become the leaders of tomorrow.

With patience, understanding, and wis-
dom, the teachers of Troy have kept our
memories sunny and bright.
lt's easy to see that without a faculty
there would be no classes of any kind. We
Trojans not only had classes and teachers.
but our memories are of periods that were
both educational and interesting, and of
those who led these hours-those whom
we came to understand and respect. Fortu-
nate are we, who received a personal touch
of guidance when we needed it most.
We remember our teachers as they sol-
emnly handed out'that dreaded test or just
as solemnly passed it back to us, graded.
We remember them as our club or organi-
zation sponsors, laughingly joining with us
in our many activities. Their sense of hu-
mor, although it was sometimes partly hid-
den, always added that intangible some-
thing to our clubs and to our classes.
quietly-an encouraging smile . . . a nod
Much of their help and work was done
of approval . . . a few words of praise at
the end of a written composition-few of
us really seeing them in action.
The proof of the success their work
brought was seen in the well-done projects
we undertook, the reports received from
former students who are now well on their
way to their desired destination, and the
slightest softening of smile lines around
the mouth of the toughest individual as he
responded to words of understanding.
For all of this our faculty receives a vote
of thanks that can only be uttered in our
hearts and minds as the realization of its
need comes over us.
Shown on the pages that follow, they
will always be remembered as dear.

SENIURS ARE UNDERCLASSMEN'S EXAMPLES
For us seniors, the years indeed are ended. All the years of our public schooling are gone. Of these, one
year will forever remain fondest and occupy a special place in our hearts. This is our senior year. We lived it
through only once, but shall relive it over a thousandfold as we borrow the rich memories it holds so dear.
Trying times and deliriously happy ones both were a part of it all, as we built in our minds, day by day.
our future plans.
We have so much to recall. Remember? . . . the deafening, but spirited roars from the cheering section
at our games as the score went up another notch . . . the crowded halls we hurried through to our six daily
classes each week . . . senior sneak day-one of the special privileges for which we had eagerly awaited . . .
the proud moments of Homecoming, Queen of Courts, the All-School Party when members of our own class
were crowned and deemed with great honor . . . the juniorfSenior Prom where we floated to the melodies
played, and dreams and realities became one and the same. These, too, were only a part of the undefinable
spirit which drifted around us as we attended each important event, remembering-this is the last time.
To the underclassmen and to ourselves we gave class day, a review of our never-to-be-forgotten THS ad-
ventures from our scrub year until the last diminishing days of being admired. respected seniors.
Xxfith all the nostalgia, the hopes, fears, and dreams. came the realization that with commencement, we
must focus our eyes on new horizons and search for the bright stars that will direct each one of us toward
Keeping this closely in mind, the strains of "pomp and Circumstancen filled our ears and guided our
footsteps. At last we are graduates. 16

IUNIURS ARE MIDDLEMEN IN UNITING SCHOOL
To be juniors-the go-betweens of the high and mighty seniors and the lowly scrubs-was an important
position, we believe. The job of serving as the link between the two classes of opposite ranks went consid-
erably unnoticed however for everyone was either paying attention to the new batch of sophs, and getting
them situated or the seniors who soon were to be leaving dear THS.
Thoughts of becoming seniors frightened us in the beginning. We looked over our past record to see
how well-qualified we were. Our sophomore year was spent becoming acquainted and getting used to the
spacious halls, numerous rooms, the student government, and new-found friends. The successful party we
gave as sophomores held memories of a waltzing cat, a hula dancer, and run-a-way lunatics for us all. Class-
room capers ended in passed final exams, and as we drifted into the realm of juniordom, we found more re-
sponsibilities could be entrusted to us and they were managed to our credit.
Some of us felt our time allowed more extra-curricular activities, so into them we plunged with vigor-
ous vitality, learning more and more with each experience. We presented the Junior-Senior Prom to honor
the seniors, and contributed our bitsto "Your Show," and many varsity programs.
Sweet, pastel shades of color were gracefully alternated around Moore Bowl in the spring as our junior
girls formed the spectacular daisy chain at graduation. Sad, we felt, and yet glad, that so much was being
left for us to carry on.
Now we feel that we really belong and must go on to become seniors-and to carry through the good
examples and traditions practiced before us, to serve as inspiration to incoming classmen, and to decide the
future before us. Most profitable to our growth of character has been this, our junior year, as we broadened
our friendships and gained a wider knowledge through the textbooks we studied. Yes, we're proud to bear
the name of the class of '56

SUPHUMURES BRING NEW TALENT T0 THS
To us sophomores, it doesn't seem possible that barely nine months ago, we were regarded as curious
scrubs just fresh and green from our respective junior highs. Since then, we have gained simply reams of
knowledge not only from books but from living as well. But, most of all, we have been united into one class.
We remember our first few weeks here at THS-those l-o-o-ng halls where we could hardly see from
one end to the other and felt lost Wandering amid the big seniors-those half hour lunch periods in the cafe-
teria where we learned to eat in a hurry-and, of course, all that horrible homework. We didn't mind being
called usub-scrubs" or sitting on the "shelf" because we knew it was all a part of belonging to THS. We really
loved every minute of it!
Eager and willing, we plunged right into our high school life. Cnr friendships became more numerous
every day and soon we were saying "Hi" to almost everyone. joining as many activities as we possibly could
manage, we served them with the anxiousness which only sophomores could possess. The exciting and long-
awaited All-School Party . . . the joyful and heart-breaking games . . . the varsities and well-produced plays
-we attended all of these and were thrilled to be a part of them. Studying hard, we had many valuable ex-
periences in our classrooms and with our teachers. When our first dreaded finals were over, we breathed a
sigh of relief. Our own Sophomore Party-enthusiastically planned and presented with care-featured all of
the new talent and ideas that we brought to THS. lt will certainly be remembered by all of us as the high point
of the year.
Yes. this year has certainly been one packed full of wonderful memories. We will never have another
sophomore year-we will never again be new to THS and have all the fun of discovering for ourselves just
what high school is lil-ce. lnstead. we must look ahead to our two remaining years of high school-to two years
of fun and hard work both in our activities and classrooms. Yes, we are now quite willing to take our place
as juniors at THS.

formed in religious assemblies mainly although many of their most enjoyable numbers consisted
of a lighter nature. The choir also sang for church and civic groups, and participated in music
festivals and many contests.
The hope of every Topeka High vocalist is to someday be a member of the Madrigal Singers.
This a cappella group, composed of the finest singing talent in the THS music department, was
ably directed by Elbert Fly. ln a class by themselves, they carried a heavy schedule, warbling
love songs, classical songs, and novelty songs for high school and civic groups, and church and

FILL THE ATMOSPHERE WITH LILTING SONG
Two of the fine choral groups at Topeka High are the Boys' and Girls' Senior Clees which
are also directed by Mr. Fly. The members are chosen in spring try-outs.
Presenting a major portion of the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter assemblies, their
excellent singing proved to be a pleasurable experience to student audiences and guests.
Trojans waited with abated breath for the main mid-winter musical event, the operetta
"Firefly" by Rudolf Friml. Long hours of classroom practice, learning the techniques of moving
on and off stage quickly and safely, and the always present problems of proper dress made up
the work-a-day life of all student music groups. But as long as their hearts held a song, work
was forgotten and troubles vanished.

WITH CULURFUL WORDS,
First Franz, thinking Nina was a boy, wanted
to adopt her to sing in his boys' choir. Next she was
wrongly exposed as a pickpocket. When her real
identity was made known. she was sent away in
shame. Three years later as a famed prima donna,
Nina sang at the engagement party for lack and
Geraldine. Here the real contents of the letter were
revealed and the two pairs of lovers were correctly
united in the surprise ending.
The operetta was directed by Elbert Fly, C.

Dramatic Coach was Tom Hinde, Art Director was
Harry Nelson. and handling the stage sets was Quen-

With ninety-two members, the band was di-

SEASON, PLAYING AND PERFECTING
Remembering the Music Department, we think
of the sixty-member orchestra, directed by Rob-
ert Hallman, with lVlarylyn Smith and Margaret
Herr as the co-concert mistresses. Our orchestra
was very busy this year, playing for the operetta,
and the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter as-
semblies. Between acts at the three plays, we well
remember their beautiful selections. Carrying
through a new idea, a concerto concert was pre-
sented which featured different instruments, in so-
los, accompanied by the orchestra. Taking part in
various junior high school assemblies, playing for
the spring vespers, and giving their annual con-
cert, the orchestra successfully ended the year.

VERSATILITY SHOWN IN MUSIC DEPARTMENT
Adding the necessary zest and spark to all THS social events from theusenior Shake-up and Football Dance"
and Sophomore Party to the varsities, was the job of the Trojan dance band,sponsored by George Neaderhiaer.
Formed for the second straight year, the dance band played both slow, dreamy music and fast, peppy tunes.
making our memories of these big social events complete and "just perfect."
With pep and enthusiasm, our high-stepping drum majorettes and drum major added sparkle to our
marching band. The girls were picked by George Neaderhiser and Robert Hallman after seeing them perform.
The majorettes, who wore white satin
uniforms with gold braid, performed at foot-
ball games and parades as they were led by
Pat Clark, the drum major.

DEBATERS TRAVEL STATE, EXPDUND ON TOPIC
"Mr, Chairman, worthy opponents, judges, and guests. I rise to . . Time after time Trojan debaters prac-
ticed variations of those lines before the big day arrived when the whole world seemed to sit back and wait for
the rest of that sentence. With Tom Swain, Harriet Adamson, Larry Reeder, and Tom Wright forming the
Trojan T954-'55 varsity squad, the topic "Resolved: That the federal government should initiate a policy of
free trade among nations friendly to the United States" was discussed from one end of Kansas to the other.
Totaling 65 wins and three trophies, the season was a most successful one, living up to the motto "Keep
it alive in '55." jerry Skinner, Gayle Askren, Doug Wilmore, and Alan Stancliffe made up the junior varsity
and Carol Faulconer and Alice Peele were alternates. The season opened with a clinic at Shawnee Mission.
Members of the debate class, composed of sophomore and novice teams, traveled to Wyandotte, Emporia, Man-

A must for the sophomores is a year of physical education.
The girls received instruction in various sports, depending on
the weather. On the warm fall and spring days, classes could be seen
participating in archery, hockey, soccer, or softball. With chilly
weather came volleyball, deck tennis, and basketball, and social
and square dancing were taken up in the gymnasium.

PRUCTURS' RESPONSIBILITIES KEEP TROY
Taking their place in our memories of Troy are the proctors who helped efficiently in their
various jobs at all times.
The Nurse's Proctors, ever ready and wishing to help an ailing fellow Trojan, were able
assistants of Mrs. Fern Taylor, Topeka I'ligh's registered nurse. Recommendations for sophomore
proctors were given on the basis of honesty, personality, and intelligence by junior high principals.
Returning as Mrs. Taylor's proctors in their junior year if they so desire, they courteously and
confidentially continue to perform such duties as answering phone calls and carrying call slips.
The SAL Council is the name of the group of student library assistants newly organized this
year to fulfill the standards of student assistant organizations in school libraries throughout the
state. The council is composed of thirty-six Trojans trained to aid the librarians, Miss Jean Rob-
ertson, Mrs. Naomi Cowger, and
Miss Lois Fergus, in giving library
service to the faculty and student
body each class period of the day.
Performing their duties throughout
the year, the SA's learn how to make
better use of the library for them-
selves and for those whom they

of learning. Sponsored by Mr. Vernon Hayes, the Movie Proctors always received a warm welcome
from the students.
To lighten the load of the main office force was the
primary task of the Office Proctors. Delivering call slips,

THESE STUDENTS PLAN BUSINESS FUTURE
The Vocational Part-time Business Club, composed of students enrolled in the vocational
office practice and retail selling classes, participated in many activities this year. They attended
the state convention at Emporia where they exchanged ideas with groups that came from other
parts of the state. Committee meetings, contests, business meetings, and a banquet and dance
added special interest for the convention. Another highlight of the year was the national con-
vention, which is held in many different parts of the country each year. The delegates to this
convention, selected from the outstanding members of the club, represent THS.
Two evening social meetings were held during the year. The state president and other state
officers attended these meetings along with club members in towns near Topeka.
The retail selling students elected Jon Bortis, Charles Eberhart, Richard Given, and Carol
Keller to serve as their President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer: respectively. Leading
the vocational office practice students were Ernestine johnson, President: Donna Holmes Vice-

VALUE EMERGES FROM
Election time, the janitor's nightmare, started
the year off with a bang that echoes yet. The
new election rules kept the candidates on their
toes measuring everything they distributed.
The candidates, walking-posters of their
merit, dashed madly around handing out
cards, and clever gimmicks to attract the vot-
er's eye. For the first time, elections were cut to
one week instead of running two weeks as they
have during the previous years. This week of
colorfuly gaiety and activity was followed by
a more peaceful reign of the new officers.

STUDENT CONGRESS FUNCTIONS
"Cf the people, by the people, and for the people." Following this maxim, the Student
Congress did a commendable job of representing the wills and wishes of the students throughout
the year in a progressive and democratic manner.
The combined houses of the congress performed many services in an attempt to oil the
machinery, take up the slack and iron out the kinks of student government here in a community of
The regular weekly calendar called for Student Council meetings Monday mornings at an
early 7 145 hour. Rep Council members met Thursdays, often with a cookie or doughnut gobbled
down just as roll was called.
Every member was responsible for some committee work whether by choice or appointment.
Presiding over the Student Council was Carter Umbarger, Vice-President of the Student
Congress, with able assistance from Linda Asay, secretary, George Erickson, attorneyg and Nl.

The Student Council did much to form our memories as together its members showed a steady
hand in school functions. The year proved to be a busy one for them, as highlights of their manage-
ment included all elections, the All-School Party, and the Point System. The Officers' Training
Course which they started at THS allowed all organization officers to receive training for their
roles-now, -as leader at THS-later, as leaders in john Public's world.

Among the jobs performed by
h these civic minded students were
' fx those of revising the election
rules and the cheerleader code,
and the approval of the point system proposals.

Honored by their election they found their job one of serv-

the university foreign students gathered to-
gether on Christmas Eve to discover that
Christmas is the same in any language. Each
student entertained and drew spontaneous
applause both onstage and off.
Ranging from a Norwegian folk dance, to
a German and an ltalian Christmas carol, to
a French ballet, the evening's program rep-
resented a variety of talent from many coun-
tries. But the impressive point lay in the fact
that it wasn't all just an act on the stage, for
Teddy Berg, our own foreign student,was
there to tell us about Christmas in her na-
tive Norway. As Christmas Eve drew to a
close, and the curtain was ready to fall, the
students joined together to sing, "And praises
sing to Cod our King, and peace to men on
As the curtain came down, a hush spread-
over the audience to he suddenly hrolcen by
a loud applause and let down of tension as
the attendants in couples were presented.
Lilting strains from the organ drifted out,
and attendants Caralee Turner and Les Kelly,
lVlary Nell Newsom and Don Hearn, Judy
Allen and Don Casson, and Jayne Allen and
Howard johnson walked slowly down the
long side aisle.
Then the big moment came-sedately and
regally down the middle aisle came Susan
Schober and Tom Brown-Queen and King
of the l954 All-School Party.
After an impressive Coronation ceremony,
the royalty formed the traditional reception
line. Remember the thrill as we passed
through it, greeted the chosen ones, and then
danced the evening away to the strains of
Bud Burdiclfs Band? Now, as we look back,
we realize that, although the evening is over,

be enthroned in the heart of Troy.

"Guest in the House" left many enjoyable memories to all but
those in the Proctor house in which
peaceful family was whirlwinded into a state of complete chaos as
their sickly guest, Evelyn, created a scandal while in the process of
wrecking the happy marriage of her hosts. Even the eight-year-old
girl was affected by Evelyn as she convinced the poor child that she
she had herself,
increased, Evelyn slowly revealed her true self
behind her coy, sweet manner. Realizing that she
was no longer wanted in the house and with no
place to go, she committed suicide.

The orchestra quieted . . . the spots flashed on their brilliance
. . . and the curtain opened to reveal another great THS dramatic
production, "George Wlashington Slept Here." But did the famous
President really sleep there? Believing that he had, Newton Fuller
was induced, much to his wife's disgust, to buy the ramshackle coun-
try house, only to find that it was Benedict Arnold, not George
Washington, who slept there. Removing the cows from the kitchen
merely constituted the first of the l"uller's many worries. Drilling
for water and finding first mud,then the neighbors water well: dis
covering that the road to their house was their neighbor's private
propertyg and depleting their financial supplies by purchasing
enormous amounts of gravel and manure also caused several hairs
to turn gray. Wherm all possibility of meeting the next payment
seemed lost, and the land was to be surrendered to their ill-natured
neighbor, they restored their then lovely home
to its original delapidated condition, but . . .
too soon. The deeds were found to be inac-
curate and correct surveying revealed the posi- -
tion of the road and well to be on the Fullers'
property. To avoid anticipated legal troubles,
the harassed neighbor offered to loan them the
much needed money leaving only one more
problem-to again renovate their home.
lnnie Parnmore and Fritzie Steele "butter up" B.
Nloser before they discover the hoax he has played
on them for years.
"But Mr, Kimberl We've got enough gravel and
two whole loads of manure-l" so says Fritzie tn
whislcered John Stocking.
A peck on the cheek is Fritrif-'n greeting to wife
,lnnie as he comes home with everything from
chiclcen feed to fancy cigars.

DRAMA GROUPS HONOR THEATRIOAL TROUPERS
Masque and Wig is one of the most inactive and yet active clubs at THS-inactive for there are no club
meetings, yet active for its members are constantly working on a performance for their class or for the public.
Since any member of the cast or staff of the year's theatrical productions and all play production and stage
craft students are automatically members, it remains a large group from year to year. ln Masque and Wig each
member finds recognition, no matter how small or unspectacular his job may have been.
ls it just a regular call slip? No, it's a letter notifying some budding young actress or actor of his newly
acquired membership in the National Thespian Society. Named after Thespis, a Creek actor of the olden days,
this society stands honoring its members who have greatly contributed either on or for the stage.
The Gertrude S. Wheeler Troup Number 2l0 chose for its officers: Joyce Warner, President: Harold
Ceer, Vice-President: and Kay Firestone, Secretary-Treasurer. The combined hard work of both the members
and the sponsors, Miss Gertrude Wheeler, dramatics teacher, and Miss Martha Herrick, produced a Thespian
float for the Homecoming Parade. Appearing on the float were the smiling face and the frowning face, which
are always present in the minds of Thespians.
As each new member was formally initiated, he pledged "to live up to the aims and ideals of the National
'Thespian Society and to promote to the best of his ability all dramatics with which he may be associated."

JUNIOR RED CROSS CARRIES HELP, CHEER
With the creed, "join and Serve," the junior Red Cross again this year promoted many valuable service
projects-both large and small. One of our most impressive assemblies of the year, the first Veterans' Day
Assembly, featuring 67 persons from 26 foreign countries who received their citizenship papers and became
true citizens of the U. S., was sponsored by the Junior Red Cross. Parties were given for the homebound chil-
dren of Topeka and the patients in the closed wards of Winter Veterans' Hospital. Gift boxes were filled and
sent to foreign countries. Here, in the main hall at THS, a Western Party was presented for all Trojans. Lead-
ership in all these activities was ably supplied by the 35 member Red Cross Council.
As a new feature this year, everyone who had an interest in the work of the junior Red Cross was invited
to attend the meetings and participate in the various activities. New council members for the next year were
elected from this group of about 75 interested Trojans during the second semester.
Officers of the Red Cross Council were: Brad Sheafor, President: Larry Reeder, Vice-President: Betty
Macy, Secretaryg and Caralee Turner, Treasurer. Mrs. Esther Kingman was the sponsor.

Even embryo publishers and columnists love the smell of printer's ink and the thrill of seeing words born
in their minds in irrevocable print. Keeping nearly a week ahead of all school activities, the World staff mem-
bers were among THS's best informed students as they faithfully covered all of Troy's events from the elec-
tions, homecoming, the All-School Party, and graduations, to club and classroom news. Distributed every Fri-
day, our Trojan paper featured such columns as Tower Views, Tro-lane and Tro-joe, Periscope, and at Christ-
mastime, a special literary section. Hardly taking a breath between one deadline and the next, the World staff
worked long hours after school in the l-room proofreading copy, writing headlines, and planning and pasting
the make-up pages. For three or more hours every Friday and Monday, four typewriters clicked at high speed,
dictionaries were scanned for synonyms and definitions. "Where's more copypaper?" Did you see my notes
on the play story?" "What shall we feature next week?" were routine questions expecting no definite
While the staff was accomplishing these taslcs, the World reporters were scurrying around the building
digging up their assigned stories and others from almost out of nowhere, and ad solicitors were combing the
downtown business district in an effort to acquire new ads.
No edition of the World could make an appearance if it wasn't for "the boys in the print room." Under
lVlr. Gilbert's able supervision, make-up sheets grew into wet proofs and finally, after a trip to the presses in
the nether regions, to six page papers awaiting fifth hour which is the Trojan way of saying "Paper, get your

SUNFLUWER FEATURES SENTIMENTAL THEME
Between planning the dummy during last summer and checking the final copy sent back by the printer
this spring, a million infinite details literally went into permanently recording the events of this school year
-into making your l955 Sunflower
Those thousands of photo stickers to go on the thousands of pictures--endless checking of names--copy
with the memory theme written in just right and typed seven inches wide-"We must get more ads. Come
on now. You can do it."-subscription lists constantly being brought up to date-schedules made out for
everything and everything alphabetized-everyone on the capable staff will always remember these everyday
Heading the editorial staff was Vivian Casper, Editor-in-chief, who with Willa Swift, Assistant Editor,
and Lynne Martin, Associate Editor, carried the burden of organizing and editing the annual with the ad-
visorship of Mrs. William Greer. Art Editor was Georgia Petree. Tom Walker as cartoonist added the finish-
ing touches to the pages. Sally Mack took charge of the sophomore and junior pictures. Specializing on the
athletics section and arranging for all the sports pictures was Chuck Farnsworth, Sports Editor. Nancy Peter-
son served as Copy Editor and wrote much of the copy in addition to her job of carefully checking all the
pages. Under the faculty sponsorship of Tom Hinde were photographers Larry Fager, Delbert Marshall, and
Charles Messick. Mark Saylor as Business Manager, aided by Brad Sheafor, his assistant. led a crew of ad
solicitors in securing the advertising to help finance the yearbook. The heavy job of circulation managing
was handled by Barbara Brower. On two dates in the fall and winter she supervised payments made through
homerooms and kept careful records of all orders. Actually distributing the books involved not only the spring
delivery but also the readying of the supplements for mailing which was taken over by staff assistants.
For the first time in Sunflower history, a supplement was printed and mailed to subscribers during the
summer. Late spring activities were, in this way, able to be recorded despite early deadline dates. Thus the
never-to-be-forgotten pageant of commencement had concrete form in pictures-the daisy chain, the faculty
in black robes, the palm-decked stage, the smiling official, the music, the diplomas, the grey-capped seniors
stepping in time to the pomp and circumstance of a graduation march. Here was sentiment in black and white,
permanent, a new feature of l955.

Nothing-nothing in the world-could be
a better reward for all the late hours, exacted
efforts, and tireless energy the staff put forth
than to see the book finally in print and the
knowledge of a responsible job well-done.
We, the staff, sincerely hope every mem-
ory of your days at Topeka High will spring
to life as you leaf through its pages today and
in the decades to come: that the knowledge of
your golden high school days may be trans-
ferred to your posterity and compared with
theirs by means of your yearbook--that is the
purpose of your Sunflower.

UUILL AND SCROLL URGANIZES PRESS CLUB
To gain entrance into Quill and Scroll, the international honor society for high school journalists, candi-
dates nominated were required to be of at least junior standing, in the upper third of their class scholastically,
and to have done superior work on either the World or the Sunflower before their recommendations could be
sent in to and approved by the Executive Secretary.
Fourteen students met these requirements and journeyed with the six former members to the University of
Kansas, March l4, where an impressive initiation ceremony was held jointly with chapters from Lawrence
and Shawnee Mission following a dinner in the Student Union Building.
As a special request, Tl-lS's chapter performed the initiation for Highland Park's eligible students in their
school thus.assisting them in beginning a chapter of their own. Included was the lighting of the seven candles,
symbolizing the journalists' creed and an explanation of their meaning.
Also in the spring, announcement was made of the formation of the Trojan Press Club by Quill and Scroll.
Membership included students whose efforts on the World or Sunflower editorial, business, and mechanical
staffs made the publications possible and who merited recognition.
Vivian Casper was elected President of Quill and Scroll: Carolyn Butts, Vice-President: and Willa Swift:
Secretary. Mrs. William Greer is the sponsor.

HI-Y, KEY CLUB SHAPE VALUABLE PRUIECTS
As a junior Kiwanis Club, the Key Club strove to serve and co-operate with the school in
all possible ways. With the money they earned, the club sponsored many worthwhile projects
throughout the year such as giving a party for the adult shut-ins of Topeka, a scientific assembly,
and a stag skating party here at THS. The main task and valuable service performed for the
school by the Key Club was the compiling and selling of the THS student directory.
Officers of the Key Club were: President, Kent May, Vice-President, Tom Swain: Secre-
tary, Dan Cassong and Treasurer, Pat Aherne. Sponsor of the club was Dr. Perdue Graves.
"To create, maintain, and extend high standards of Christian Fellowship throughout the
school and community" is the motto of the Hi-Y organization. Composed of twenty boys, the
group, with the help of Bill Schnebel and Otto Bodenhausen, the sponsors, organized basketball
and ping pong teams for intramural play. The Hi-Y boys sponsored a convention, made a float
for the Christmas parade and planned the before-school group-singing at Christmas time. This
organization of the YMCA helps the boys to develop their bodies, minds, and spirits.
Leading the group were: President, Norman Swartz, Vice-President, Don Wells, Secretary,
Clifford Starbuck, Treasurer, Glen Long: and Chaplain and Program Chairman, Noel Scrivner.

PLAY CADETS, USHER CLUB SERVE SCHOOL
Our memories of this year's play cadets remind us of the courtesy they displayed at all
times. Held responsible for selling and taking tickets for the school-sponsored plays and the
operetta, members were stationed at all doors of the auditorium and sold tickets at both windows.
Sixteen play cadets were used for every performance. The girls wore suits or date dresses,
while the boys wore clark suits. Miss Frances Hutchison was the new sponsor.
"Service with a smile" describes the activities of the Usher Club. Aside from their regular
duties of ushering for plays and the two performances of the operetta, the club was invited to
usher for other programs presented in Hoehner auditorium and served at the three general sessions
of the Kansas State Teachers' Association.
Arriving an hour before the lights were dimmed, they made sure that everyone was in the
right seat before curtain time. This year, for the first time, they were made members of the
Masque and Wig for their services at all dramatic functions.
Harold Eads was chosen head usher, and Miss Bernice Finley sponsored the successfully

RELIABLE CADETS, SNACK BAR, CUNCESSIUN
Lingering in our memories are the football and basketball games and the varsities we all
looked forward to. Four THS service groups made it possible for us to enjoy these activities.
The game cadets directed by Jack Dean, during the football season, and Clarence Mullenix,
during the basketball season, had charge of the selling and taking of the tickets at the home
games. Capably handling the responsibility of the ticket money, the game cadets contributed
to the success of the games with their efficiency and hard work.

Helping to keep order at the varsities, the varsity cadets did their part to make our varsities
enjoyable and worth remembering. Each cadet, at his assigned position in the cafeteria, kept his
eyes open for any trouble in that vicinity. Membership in this group was open to anyone interested.
Do you remember how, after a grueling day of work and strain, the snack bar looked like
an oasis in the desert? Much credit must be given to the four workers who stayed after school
every afternoon selling not only pop, ice cream, candy bars, and gum: but also school supplies,
banners, stickers, and pep club emblems.
STAND WORKERS ARE TIRELESS IN EFFORT
Helping to satisfy our hunger and thirst were the sixteen concession stand workers. On
game nights these loyal Trojans would stay after school to cook the hot dogs and make the hot
chocolate and coffee. While waiting for the game crowds, they would have a snack. Then their
duty began as all through the game they sold hot dogs, hot chocolate, coffee, potato chips, pop-
corn, all kinds of pop, candy bars, and gum.
Four members of the varsity cadets fwell-known to those of us who were inclined to be
rowdy, were the varsity ejectors. Four of the largest boys in the school. they escorted anyone
who made trouble during a varsity to the door.
Always lending advice and courage to these groups was Charles Shoyer, sponsor of the
varsity cadets and concession and snack bar workers.

HOSTS AND HUSTESSES PLAY MAJOR RULES
Nose-tingling aromas of hot cinnamon rolls and juicy roast beef issuing forth from the kitchen ovens and
drifting up through our halls and into open classroom doors made fourth hour the most anticipated one of the
day. During the short half hours that we spent within its walls, our cafeteria was always the scene of much
Weak with hunger, we filed through our long lunch lines, selected our tantalizing trays and hurriedly
gulped our food down in less than half an hour. Never quiet for a moment, the cafeteria then gave us a chance
to review the morning's happenings with our friends.
Frequently heard above the din of chattering Trojans was the familiar cry "Sophomore" Whether a
sophomore, junior, or senior made any blunder such as dropping a tray, spilling something, or slipping and
falling, this shout was heard throughout the entire cafeteria. Cn game day, Trojan yells, led by the cheerlead-
ers, echoed from each nook and corner and resounded out into the halls of Troy. New to our cafeteria SCCIIC this

to be played.
To keep down rowdyism and promote a clean, orderly cafeteria were the duties of the hosts and hostesses,
consisting of 36 members in every lunch hour. Wiping off their tables faithfully where jim had spilled his
water and Mary had left some cake crumbs, these cheerful helpers under the supervision of D. L. Erwin, made
our cafeteria one to be proud of. Head hosts and hostesses Barbara Barnett, Ray Christian, Dorothy Spicer, and

LATIN, FRENCH CLUBS PROMOTE LANGUAGES
Encouraging an appreciation for Latin throughout THS was the purpose of the latin Club.
sponsored by Mrs. Helen Sutherin. Boasting l00'iQ membership in the junior Classical League,
it readily proved that Latin is alive and enjoyable.
Much planning and hard work on the part of the club members resulted in the first prize
float in the Homecoming parade. A much awaited event for the club was the language banquet.
Here food and skits-Roman style-added to the enjoyment of all. Open house, complete with
program and refreshments, was held in the spring for all junior high Latin students.
Each Latin class is organized into a separate club which has its own meetings in addition to
those held by the entire Latin Club. The five class presidents this year were: Laurie Seeber,
Brock Spencer, Louie Vallas, Roy Boley, Chuck Farnsworth, and Larry Reeder.
With the advanced French students, the French club began the vear and enjoyed the activities
of the first semester together. The club, which is sponsored by jerry O'Sullivan, initiated the
first-vear students at the beginning of the second semester.

A.F.S. COUNCIL GETS START
Many memories of the serious and humorous moments we spent with Adele Berg, our
foreign student from. Norway, will always remain with us. Not being able to give her name
musical pronunciation it was meant to have, she became known to students and teachers alike by
her nickname, Teddy. We, her classmates, not only learned the differences and similarities of
her country and ours but also learned that students in other countries are just as funloving as
are, and on some occasions it was hard to tell who
was teasing whom. Thanks, Teddy, for the privilege
of being your classmate during your year in our
It was just a little over a year ago that the cry
was heard throughout the halls of Troy, "Andrea,
Dolores, and Bill get to go!" Yes, Andrea Paul, '54,
and Dolores Arn and Bill Lauterbach, '55, were
chosen to go abroad under the auspices of the Amer-
ican Field Service. They returned to eagerly tell of
the summer which they spent as exchange students
in Germany and France.
The AFS Council here at Troy was organized
because of the interest and work of a past German
exchange student to further the work of the AFS and
to promote better understanding of countries among
TI-IS students. Sponsoring the council was Miss Bar-
bara Aly, who spent a year in England as an exchange

With the purpose of giving its members a better outlook toward the teaching profession, Topeka l-ligh's
DeWitt Clinton chapter of the Future Teachers of America performed many valuable projects such as assisting
with National Education Week and the Kansas State Teachers' Convention and helping children with their art
work during the Sunday afternoon art gallery hour. Meetings of the club featured speakers who told of the
opportunities in teaching and a demonstration of the teaching of mentally retarded children. A new plan this
year was to have a buddy system where each member of the club was assigned to a Topeka teacher who helped
the member to learn more about his particular field of teaching.
Officers of FTA were: Carol Morford, Presidentg Tom Woodward, Vice-Presidentg Donna Breeden, Sec-
retaryg Astrid Skoog, Treasurer: Jo Schendel, l-listoriang Laura Ciraves, Librarian: and Ernestine Johnson,

LEARN MODERN IOEALS OF THEIR PROFESSIONS
Appearing on a nurses' page in the Topeka Daily Capital, assisting with a coke party given by the medical
auxiliary for the girls of Troy, making trips to both Forbes Air Force Base and the KU Medical Center, and pre-
senting a variety show at Nvinter General Hospital were only a few of their many projects. One of the high
points of the year was the impressive initiation and pinning ceremony in the spring where Futures Nurses' pins
were given to the members of the club who were juniors. The sponsor was Katharine Tucker.
Calling themselves the 'I-roHoma, or Trojan future homemakers, the newly reorganized FHA, sponsor-
ed by Annette Weissbeck, began the year with a coke party for all home economics girls interested in learn-
ing more of the ideals of homemaking. As their project of the year, they presented a spring circus party, com-
plete with fish ponds, balloons, and pink lemonade, for the orphans of Topeka.
Officers elected for the year were: Phyllis Viergever, President: Carol Snyder, Vice-Presidentg Donna

to the entire student body during a December assembly.
"Your Show" was originated during the l95l-'52 year by Larry Shiner in an effort to un-
cover some of the hidden talent of THS. With Mrs. Esther Kingman as sponsor and three
representatives from each class managing the program, the first "Your Show" was presented to
its audience. Since then, Trojans have always looked forward to "Your Show" as one of the
best assemblies of the year.
This year's production included everything from an accordion trio, tap dance and several
singers, to magic tricks and the "serious" message of the day taken from Mother Goose. lntro-

GIRLS' AND BUYS' STATERS STUDY GOVERNMENT
Seven junior boys and two junior girls representing THS packed their suitcases and found their ways
last june to an event-packed week of politics, sports, government, and new-found friends-Girls' and Boys'
States. Rowena johnson and Harriet Adamson found the site of their constructive seven days on the campus
of Kansas University, and Larry Reeder, Rodgar Taylor, Dan Casson, Howard johnson, Bob Moore, Brad
Sheafor, and Tom Swain made North High School of Wichita their home for a week.
Organized for the purpose of better acquainting students with the functions of their state governments,
the trainees from Kansas received much practical experience in the form of organization, responsibilities. and
application of material learned in the classroom.
For the first few days the actualness of the experience took the form of elections as civic-minded "citizens"
put vigor and vitality into campaigning for state and county offices. Larry Reeder was elected Speaker of the
House of Representatives, Tom Swain, State Senator, and Rodgar Taylor, Mayor of his city. Dan Casson was
appointed State Fire Marshal, Bob Moore received a post with the KBI, and Howard johnson became Commis-
sioner of Agriculture. Rowena johnson was elected as a justice of the Supreme Court, and Harriet Adamson
became Speaker of the House of Representatives and a Senator to Girls' Nation, a meeting similar to Girls'
State but on a nationwide scale.
When the results of the tallying had been recorded to deter-
mine the election winners, work of the government began. Every T I
delegate had some responsibility. It may have been that of attend- R
ing city council as a member, or being a representative to the
legislature, or holding a state office. Legislation ranging from
joint resolutions favoring the holding of Girls' and Boys' States
simultaneously in the same town fan annual endeavorj to bills
asking for compulsory driver education were discussed, debated,
passed, or rejected. Cities, into which the delegates were divided,
passed rules governing traffic regulations and conducted codes for
their respective jurisdictions. Regulations against singing in the
shower and exceeding a speed limit of thirty m.p.h. in the halls
were frequently considered.
When the end of Girls' and Boys' States drew to a close, not
only were the functions of state government fixed a little better
in their minds, but all delegates found they had made many lasting
friendships and could draw on an unlimited number of pleasant

rooiam MEN PLAY A Runnrn sEAsoN IN
Following an absence of four years from the Halls of Troy, Otto Bodenhausen returned this fall to take
over the job of head football coach, which was vacated by Bob Briggs.
With a record of three wins compared to six losses, the Trojan football squad suffered from inexperi-
ence throughout most of the season. But spirit and determination partially compensated for that as the green
Troymen romped over St. lVlary's of Wichita, Manhattan, and Ward, while four of their six losses were only
by six points or less. Accounting for the other losses, Wichita East beat Troy by twelve, while Shawnee Mission
handed Topeka their only real licking, 42-l3
While IO7 boys reported for practice the first day, Coach Bodenhausen had only two lettermen and a
couple of transfer monogrammers from which to form a nucleus for the squad.
The Trojans had a strong offense, as they out-rushed all but one of their opponents, Lawrence, but gains
were frequently hampered by fumbles.
Opening the schedule on September l7, the Trojans met Highland Park, and the Scotties evened the
series record between the cross-town rivals by downing Troy, I9-I4. ln the three times the two teams have
met, each has won once, while the third, in 1952, ended in a 6-6 deadlock.
Next on the agenda was Lawrence, perennial gridiron powerhouse, and the Trojans met with defeat
number two, 0-6. lt was a moral victory for the men of Troy, however, as they were 20-point pre-game un-
derdogs. Lawrence went on to win the mythical state championship.
ln their homecoming game, the Trojan warriors were subdued for the third time in a row The con-
querors this time were the Redskins from Wichita North, held scoreless for three quarters before Artie Dil-
lon dove into the end zone with seven minutes remaining in the game. The final score read: North 6, Topeka 0.
On October 8, the team traveled to Wichita to meet the Aces from East. Behind, 26-0, at halftime, the
Trojans battled back valiantly, but in vain. Final score: East 26, Topeka l4.
The Black and Cold notched its first win on October l5, when it dropped St. lVlary's of Wichita, 20-7.

under the tutelage of Chet Davenport, smashed their way to an un-
defeated season by bowling over nine stunned opponents. Several
times the sophs totaled over 40 points in a game. They gained further
recognition when two of their fellow classmen-Ed Alberg and Willie
Coleman-were awarded varsity letters.
The Trojan "B" team, coached by Larry Reid, rolled to an un-
defeated season by shutting out the Lawrence "Bees," I4-0, and drop-
ping the Highland Park reserves twice by the identical score of I3-7.

LEN REIGNS AS
As the royal cars drove around the track, the spectators waited anxiously and wondered
which girl would receive the crown of yellow daisies. Then while the band heralded the royalty
with sweet melodies, Queen Lois Allen was escorted through an archway of black and gold
pompoms, preceded by her attendants, Judy Allen and Nancy Henley. Brad Sheafor, Speaker of
the House of Representatives, escorted the Queen while Dan Casson and Carter Umbarger, Presi-
dent and Vice-President, respectively, of the Student Council escorted the attendants to the gold,
T-shaped throne centered in a lighted crown formed by the band.
As a great hush spread over the crowd, Mayor Schnellbacher crowned the Queen of the
fourteenth annual Homecoming and presented her with a bouquet of gold mums and daisies. The
attendants received corsages of gold mums. Following the presentation, the spectators paid a loud
tribute to the royalty.

CHEERLEADERS SPARK PEPSTERS
"We're from THS-We're from THS-THS-THS-yes,
yes, yes!" Memories of these loud peppy chants led by our cheer-
leaders still echo in our ears. lntroducing new yells as well as the
old, these cheerleaders were always on their toes. With tireless
energy and constant smiles, they promoted school spirit and led
the entire cheering section at football and basketball games and
pep assemblies. Sponsored by' Miss Pat Key, they devoted many
long hours to practice and learning new yells. Chosen in an all-
school election, the cheerleaders were constantly on display and
had to represent the school properly at all times. They certainly
played a part in the outcome of our games

GIRLS', BUYS' PEP CLUBS STIMULATE SCHOOL
Forming awhite"T" against a black background at all Topeka High home football and
basketball games was the Honor Pep Club. These pepsters form the nucleus of the cheering
section and give the team added spark by showing them that the school is always behind them.
This honor organization is composed of junior and senior girls who have been selected on
the basis of the number of points that they have accumulated by attending meetings, making
posters, and wearing their uniforms to all home games while in the regular pep club. Carol
Morford was elected President and Nancy Harbes, Vice-President.
The Regular Pep Club members in their black uniforms caused the white T to stand out in
a striking manner. These students were led by Caralee Turner, President: Harriet Adamson,
Vice-President: Linda Larson, Secretary, Sharon Rosenwald, Treasurer: and Marilyn Gresser,
Point Membership Chairman.

Years later in being founded than the Ciirls' Pep
Club and varying somewhat in its regulations, the
newly organized Boys' Pep Club was a distinct asset
to athletic events and school spirit this year. Plans made
last year were worked out in October when the boys
appeared first as an organization wearing white shirts
and dark trousers. For winter wear, black V-neck
sweaters completed the uniform, and the effect as they
sat around a gold "T" made a nice complement to the
Girls' Honor Pep Club. The letter around which they
sat was formed by the athletic T-Club members from
various school sports wearing their brilliant gold sweat-
ers. The forty-two members of this year's T-Club were
an active group that had an "Honor Pep" appeal.
The regular group was not limited to classes, the and Bill L,,u,,,L,,,,,1,,
requirements being acceptable grades, uniforms, and
unlimited pep and school spirit. Greatest among the re-
wards earned by membership was just being a part of
a new and growing organization.

BASKETBALL TEAM CUMBINES HEIGHT, SPIRITQ
Topeka lliglfs basketball team. ably coached by jack Dean
and "Chick" Gordon, turned in a fine I2-8 record this year along
with second place trophies from two tournaments, With only
three lettermen back from last
TL- year's club--Tom Brown, Em- iw
' ' mett Thompson. and Dick Devine
--rookie Head Coach Dean had to
XJ count on several junior aspirants i
to fill out the starting line-up, and
they all came through with out-
standing performances. Tom Cole-
man, Glen Long, and Pete Sumey
earned the stars by their names.
Starting out the season with a
bang, the Trojans ran over North-
east of Kansas City, 54-42, and
then Lawrence, 60-52. Continuing
its win streak Troy rapped Par-
sons, 66-63, as Tom Brown scored

season were cut short on Decem-

on, Ye-ar Mission star john Peppercorn hit
the winning bucket with less than I0 seconds left in the game. Dur-
ing Christmas vacation, the Trojans entered the Highland Park
lnvitational Tournament and immediately made themselves unwel-
come guests by beating the hosts, 72-44. They were in turn defeated
in the finals, 53-47, by Manhattan, who finished the regular season
without a loss.
Back in school the Deanmen started the new year off right by
tromping the Highland Park Scotties again, 73-4l. ln their next
outing the Trojans played what could perhaps be called their worst
game, losing a 48-46 overtime decision to slightly regarded Wichita
St. Mary's,as they hit only 32 per cent of their field goal attempts
and only 36 per cent of their free throws.
Wyandotte spilled Troy on january 21 with a 57-43 rout.
These same Bulldogs went on to win the state championship.
Dropping its third straight game, Topeka was nipped by Salina
next when the Maroon center popped in the winning goal with only
I9 seconds left, but the Trojans got back on the right track with a
6l-54 Win over Washington Rural on .lanuary 28. They dropped
their next one, however, 39-54, to Shawnee Mission.
The men of Troy hit their offensive peak on February 4 when
they avenged an earlier loss by swamping Wichita St. Marys 81-58.
Trojan co-captains Tom Brown and Emmett Thompson scored Z2
and I8 respectively in that one. The following week they stung
Ottawa, 77-62, as Brown again led the scoring with 24. TOM BROWN PETE SUMFX
The successful season came to a head on February I8 before
a wild, screaming, near-capacity crowd, when the home-standing "' "' '
Trojans rallied in the second half to hand defeat to a powerful Wyandotte squad. 64-60.
Thr Ye1 one Year
Playing for her Highness, the Queen of Courts, Carol Morford, Topeka thrashed Highland Park for the
third time, 66-58. although the Scottics battled desperately in the final minutes against a team of reserves, and
Troy was forced to return its regulars to insure victory.
Salina then snapped the Trojans four-game winning streak with a 70-66 beating on March 4, but
Topeka ended the regular season with a victory over Lawrence, 57-42, the next night.
ln the regional tournament held at
Lawrence. the Trojans advanced to the
finals by blasting Atchison, 70-42, but
G A R N E R S E L VE V I C T 0 R I E S were eliminated, 59-48, by a well-balanced

CROSS COUNTRY BUYS TAKE LUNG IAUNTS
compi e a record of four firsts, four
seconds, and a fourth this year despite frequent colds and pulled muscles.
With Julius Lincoln, senior, leading the way with seven firsts in nine meets, the Trojan
harriers were quite successful, although compared with championship squads of the two previous
years, they had a rather disappointing season.
After winning their first two meets, the Trojans placed second at Wichita, breaking a winning
skein that dated back to the I952 season, I9 wins in a row to be exact.
Lincoln set several records during the year, lowering the Shawnee Country Club record to
9:26.5 and setting a new course record at Shawnee Mission, 9:22.
At the Haskell Invitational, second in importance only to the state meet, E.rwin's distance
men placed second to Emporia, with Lincoln placing third, and Stan Ridgeway fifth, for Topeka's
two top finishers.
ln the state meet, held at K. U., the Trojans took fourth behind Wichita East, Haskell, and
Lincoln again took third, Ridgeway, sev-
enth, Chuck Farnsworth, twenty-third, and
Dan Ralston, thirty-second.
The lettermen for the year were: Lincoln
Ridgeway, Dan Casson, Farnsworth, Ral-
ston, and Allen Oldham.
The latter three will be back next year.

secret chambers of the heart and mind.

Johnson and his pep band for sparking
up the pep assemblies and out-of-town
games-especially when our side stole
the show and drowned out Atchison,
making their band director, who con-
ducted the soft and sweet, turn hot
under his starched, white collar.
Best game of the season was the
thriller against rated number-one Wy-
andotte in our gym when they and we
played tag for the lead. When the last
gun sounded, we read the score, 62-60,
in our favor and nearly raised the roof.
Then a voice boomed over the loud-
speaker that there had been a foul-
two shots. We held our breath as he
continued, "Tom Brown will shoot."
Shoot he did, adding two more points
to a perfect game.
Romance of the year was the Arm-
strong-Ellithorpe tidbit, now Ellithorpe
and Hlithorpe, lnc. Who said the fac-
ulty was inhuman?
Oh! Oh! The Sunflower got the big-
gest score on the World. Though the
junior journalists tried to act intelligent
and keep the All-School Party royalty
a scoop from us as well as you-all flike
we successfully kept our secrets from
theml, they overlooked a minor item.
One evening as we Sunflowers were
slaving our whiles away in our office,
it came to us fno credit to our super
intelligencel that the list would prob-
ably be in the drawer where all the
copy is kept that is sent back from the
printer. Sure 'nough. Ha ha, kiddies!
You should be sharper.
Girls who went in quest of chivalry
and honour and the niceties of the good
old days began to wonder if the forma-
tion of the Knights weren't the answer
to their search. Too bad gals. Better
luck next time.
Ted Kronner, the doll General Elec-
tric assigned to put on the "Previews of
Progress" assembly, sent the femmes
swooning to their classes. Louise Fager
ruined the morning when she wailed,
No better, more surprising, or more
welcome news was broadcast ever than
on February 4 over the radio when we
Trojans heard "There will be no school
today due to a ten-inch snow." Thanks
to the characters who f'mally had their
prayers of a huge snow storm closing

IT'S TIME TO THINK ABOUT

versity is proud of her long record of preparing young men and women

down thick when Jack Dean tried to
call St. Mary's of Wichita and cancel
the basketball game scheduled, but
their team was already on the train.
Two and a half weeks later Ctalk
about queerll Topeka suffered a city-
wide gas shutoff when the main gas
line snapped. Oh, "friz," when the at-
mosphere outside plopped to nearly
zero and thermostats in most houses
the next morning registered a cool fifty
degrees. Relieved were we to harbor
ourselves in good ol' THS where coal
proved a welcome stand-by. Teachers
brought their kids and Mrs. McCormick
even brought her pooch to class.
We predict a grand future for Marva

Shades of youthl To top off the al-
ready event-packed nine months, Troy
was a ground on which the flu, measles,
mumps, and even chickenpox ran wild
and got the best of the juniors. Now if
it happened to the scmbs . . .
"Battlecry" was the most popular
movie for the smuts, curiosity seekers,
and anybody who didn't want to be
left out of the general conversation
which ran high for the duration of the
Speaking of unmentionables. there
was much speculation as to the true
meaning of the secret GAMOA club.
A probable suggestion was "Germs Ac-
company Make Out Artists."
lt was hard to determine the biggest
Brownnose of the year, but several
authorities have come to the conclusion
that the title of "Brownie King" is tied
between Doug Wilmore and Fritzie
Steele. Carter Umbarger ran a close
second. "Neki hokey!"
Favorite expressions weren't by-
passed this year and a few common to
the hilt were: "You know it, girl"-
Nancy Peterson: "Capital X on that"
-Mr. Jones: "Muchly"-Miss Finley:

sembly when what started out to be
commonplace bidding for the five tags
to be auctioned off developed into hot
competition between classes as the
seniors bought the first "hot" tag for
555. Leaders stuffed literally hundreds
of dollars into wastebaskets and rushed
to count it on the stage and in the aisles.
The whole goal of S650 land more!
was raised right then and there, a whole
day ahead of schedule.
We want to thank J. B. Moser for
adding his humor to the plays and
operetta like a regular pro. Girls wear-
ing pony tails will never forget the dear
lad who'd pick up the lock of hair and
comment. "Just checking."
Among accomplishments this year,
the cheerleaders put into execution the
policy of increasing school spirit by
having the student body stand and sing
the school song after every pep assem-
bly and gamsewin or loseg the admin-
istration originated and enforced the
new seventh hour rule Qthat's an ao-
complishment?Jg homeroom period
was disposed of on Fridays-assembly
or not, parking spaces around school
were put on a first-come, first-serve
basisg new cafeteria procedures were
tested 5 and the sophomores were given
a 10:30 extended curfew.
l"lere's to a few well-meaning lan-
guage students who tried to make their
teacher happier by suggesting, through
notes, he become attached: Mr. Fink
who caught more than his usual num-
ber under the mistletoe in the guidance
office last Christmas: the majority of
the teachers who co-operated and got
up-to-date pictures for the annual: and
"Heavy" Erwin for the brighter lights
in the cafeteria. We love you all, you
The seniors, despite what they say,
will miss THS with a passion as they
leave its protecting walls to go out into
the world. But we have the memories,
kiddies, and we shall never forget.
Though the golden days are gone, their
memories linger on. Take care of this
old school, underclassmen. We've been
around and we know-it's the
"bestest." 'Til another time fmaybe
neverj we bid you adieu. Don't forget
us. We'l1 never forget you.

TOPEKA HIGH SCHOOL PEP SONG
Come on and give three cheers for old Topeka
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Show the foe that they cannot deny Victory
Let every Trojan son know we're behind the gun,
Till the battle is won.
And if we all pitch in, another victory we'll win
For Topeka High!
TOPEKA HIGH SCHOOL SONG
A song for the land where the sunflowers bloom:
Hail to our city so fair:
And three times three with a Sis! Boom! Bah!
For the high school whose colors we wear.
Swift speed the moments of youth's fair day.
Shadows will lengthen at eveg
But one bright spot will remain alway-
'Tis the high school whose colors we weave.
The Red, White and Blue are forever dear,
Pure as the heavens above,
And we'll be true, native land, to you
And the high school whose colors We love.
For we are the students of the T H S
Sing we the tribute that our hearts confess,
Ever we glory in the proud success.
Hail to the Black and Gold forever.

DESERVING TRUIANS EARN HONOR T AWARDS
Outstanding Trojans who excelled in academic and extra-curricular activities during the year were honored
in the spring at the Honor T assembly, presided over by Dolores Arn and Judy Clark, Secretary and Assistant
Secretary of the Point System, respectively. Accumulating points from outstanding grades, perfect attendance
and punctuality, participation and leadership in school clubs, holding school offices, taking part in dramatic pro-
ductions, working on publications, or lettering in sports or debate, many Trojans compete for these honors.
Presented with the highest honor, an All-Time Honor T certificate containing a picture of the T H S tower
were twenty-eight top Troians who had collected a minimum of thirty points during the year. Next, I05 out-
standing students, each with a minimum of twenty points, received Honor T certificates with Trojan heads on
them. Sixty-nine other Trojans were given Honorable Mention certificates for having at least fifteen points.

BASEBALL TEAM TIES FUR BORDER TITLE
Finishing the season in a tie for first in the Border League, jack Dean's
baseball team compiled an all-over 8-5 record and a 7-3 mark in loop play.
The Trojans could have had a clear-cut championship had they won their
last game, but Curt Mathews, strong-armed righthander from Kansas City North
shut out Troy on one hit as his team grabbed a 6-0 win and a share of the title.
After opening the season with an embarrassing 3-2 defeat at the hands of
tiny Washburn Rural, the team then proceeded to win eight of the next twelve
games, including two shut-out victories over regional champion Wyandotte.
Larry Miller, Trojan southpaw, authored both of these wins over the Bulldogs
-one of them a one-hitter and the other a two-hitter.
Miller was the leading pitcher with a 5-2 record and the top batter with a
The Trojans placed third in the regionals, bowing to Ward in the semi-finals.

SWIMMERS BATTLE WITH EXPERIENCED FUES
Under the tutelage of Vernon Haves, this year's swimmers trekl-ted over to the Washburn University

pool each afternoon and practiced faithfully. But fame and fortune were not to be had y t e inmen.
Trouncecl thoroughly by every big school they met, the Trojans were able to defeat only Wentworth Military

52-I 3, and another by 53-I 2.
Aside from their win over Wentworth, the closest the Trojans came to a victory was a 3I-34 loss to
Wyandotte. Although five Iettermen returned this year, none could be called a consistent winner. As a result,
underclassmen, namely in the form of sophomores,f1llecI out the starting roles.
Captain Mark Saylor was the most regular point-
getter. He swam in the 40 and T00 yard freestyle
events. Diver Bob Butler, freestylers Allen Meyers,
Bob Wikkerink, Gary Rowles, and breast-strolcer Bob

WRESTLERS SEND THREE T0 STATE MEET
Coach Floyd Holcomb's wrestlers, like their more amphibious counterparts-the swimmers-suffered a
disappointing season. Also like the finmen they were able to salvage a victory from Wentworth Military
Academy, but could only find one other willing victim around-Manhattan. These two schools supplied
Topeka with its only two victories, while a host of others handed them twelve losses.
However, the grapplers proved to be tough foes for more than one opponent. Douglas squeezed by the
Trojans by only six points. Kansas City School for the Blind won by five once and eight another time.
Salina topped the matmen by just seven points, and El Dorado by only eight.
ln several cases, a capable 95-pounder would have made the difference between defeat and victory.
But Topeka High could put forth no representative at all for that weight and the Trojans forfeited five points
in every meet.
The season's brightest aspect was junior Bob Lindsay's second place finish in the state meet. Senior co-
captains Dan Noe and Charles Carhart placed in the regionals but were eliminated in the state meet.
Lettermen for the year were: Seniors-Hans Petersen fl I2 poundl, Carhart CIZOI, Ray Miller Cl27J,

TENNIS TEAM CLAIMS SUNFLUWER TITLE
The tennis team, compiling an 8-2 record, finished well in the state meet, as Lynn Fry placed second in
singles, and the sophomore duo of john Wohlfarth and Larry Deever took third in doubles. Coached by
"Chick" Gordon, tennis was one of the most successful sports this year. The netmen won the coveted Sun-
flower League title as Fry won the singles title, and Wohlfarth and Deever copped the doubles champion-
Losing only to Winfield-and to them twice-the netmen galloped through the season, shutting out four
opponents and winning all but one match against two teams.
The racketeers will return all but two of the lettermen next year. Only fifth man Charles Colley and

GDLFERS WIN TEN MEETS: SECOND IN STATE
Topeka High's golfers, having the most successful season
of any sport this year, ended the year with ten wins, a second
place in the Sunflower League, and a second in the four-man
division of the state meet.
Only one of the regulars will not return next year. He
is Gerry Rodehaver, senior, who played as fourth man through-
out the season. Of the other lettermen, three are juniors and
two are sophomores.
Sophomore Steve Swan was the number one man on the
squad, shooting consistently in the mid 70's. junior Dave Cur-
nutt and sophomore Eddie Saylor composed a strong second
and third man, respectively. Other lettermen were Rodehaver,
Art Proctor, and Dave Mohler.
The Trojans, coached by E. l... Fink, ripped through all
opposition, with the exception of a second place finish in the
four-man division of the Manhattan lnvitational, until the Sun-
flower League meet. Shawnee Mission, whom Topeka had
defeated previously, won the league title as the Trojans slipped
ln the state meet, the lndians again proved to be the only
obstacle keeping Topeka from a championship. The Mission
four-man team fired a sizzling 597 in copping the title. Topeka
was second with 624. The Trojan two-man team placed twelfth
in the state.

FIVE SCHOOL RECORDS SET AS TRACK TEAM
Harvesting five first places, three seconds, two
thirds, and an eighth in competition this year, the track
team, coached by "Heavy" Erwin, set five school records
in the process. Of it's five wins, two were relays, two
were dual meets, and one was the regional at Manhat-
.Terry Skinner lowered the T H S high hurdle mark
to I5.l and the lows to Z0.l. Tom Coleman, junior
sprinter, set a new mark for the T00-yard dash when he
ran it in l0.0 at Baker. Julius Lincoln, who was beaten
only once during the season, broke a T6-Vear-old mile
record when he ran 4:33 at Baker. He later lowered
that to 4:29.l in the state meet.
Another new mark that was set this year was the
incredible 3225.9 turned in by the mile relay team in the
preliminaries of the state meet. The team consisted of
Skinner, Larry Schneider, Dan Casson, and Dick De-
vine. This also set a new state record for the event, but
Shawnee Mission lowered the time to 3225.4 in the
Two new meets were inaugurated this year-the
Kansas State lndoor at Manhattan and the Topeka Re-
lays, co-sponsored by Topeka High and Highland Park.
The Trojans ran behind Wichita East and Shawnee
Mission most of the season, but dropped to an unex-
pected eighth in the state meet, scoring only twelve
points. Shawnee Mission defeated Topeka at the lndoor,

CLASS DAY ECHUES SPIRIT t
Sentiment reigned supreme as nearly five hundred
seniors, dressed in their very best, solemnly marched
into Hoehner Auditorium to pay their final respects to
T.H.S.-this was Class Day, l955. Senior Class President Larry Reeder presented the class gift of stone
benches for the veranda to Principal E. B. Weaver before the entire assembly and guests-the class of l905.
The lights dimmed and the orchestra set the mood. ln three acts and two hours, a review of the high
school days of the class of l955 was presented on stage in song, dance, and dialogue-"So Here We Are." With
a dude ranch of l970 as the meeting place for this year's graduates, highlights of the days at T H S were re-
called to life around a campfire and as various remembrances stepped from a life-size album of memories.
Tears glistened in many eyes as the sad, yet proud, presentation drew to a close and the seniors rose to
sing their class song with heart as well as voice--"Halls
of Troy." Knowing their high school days were now is
only memories, the seniors marched single file up the l
aisles ancl out of the auditorium, keeping the trying,
as well as the good times, close to their hearts.

"HALLS OF TROY"
Oh, we love the halls of Troy
That surround us here today.
And we will not forget,
Though we be far, far away.
To the hallowed halls of Troy.
Every voice will bid farewell,
And shimmer off in twilight
Like the old tower bell.
One day a hush will fall,
The footsteps of us all
Will echo down the hall and disappear
But as we sadly start
Our journeys far apart,
A part of every heart will linger here
In the sacred halls of Troy,
Where we've lived and learned to know
That through the years we'll see you
In the sweet afterglow.
