F U E a - ti 5' Q Q if Dedication 2 We have had the sincere pleasure of having lvlr. Burnett as a memher of our faculty staff. He has taught here for six years as the head of the Commercial Department. Last year at midfyear he took over the Physical Education classes due to the shortage of teachers. Mr. Burnett has been a great favorite among the studentsg we respectively dedicate this annual to him. FOREWORD 6808.9 This 1944 "Tohiscan" has been condensed be' cause of necessary shortages. We have tried to have as many activitieslhnd organizations represented as possible. We hayearrpmpted to capture all the school memories and help 'lyou preserve them. MAN MQWDN MEMORIAM . GSQLD In memory of the boys and girls who have left our school to give or endanger their lives so that we may have world peace. i i in I 1 1 .. ' Q '- fffvffw H fa 1 I ILQ454 SUPERlNTENDENT'S MESSAGE 65089 SPEND YOURSELVES WISELY Even though the war has caused many limitations on the things we can do there is still rich opportunity for all who are willing to spend themselves in attaining high objectives. Your superintendent has watched with interest in the field of sports when young men spend their last ounce of physical energy in order to make the team of defeat the opponent, for the assured result is stronger men with more courage and self con' fidence, men with renewed and superior energy. Likewise the onlooker sees young men and young women with a purpose apply their mental energies to the point of fatigue in order to attain some worth while objective and the result is again just as sure to be increased power. There is this difference, however, physical attainment is limited--possible mental attainment seems almost unlimited. Spend yourselves wisely and without stint. The reward is definite and sure. E V. B. Armstrong. PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE GEOSS Your Tohiscan represents hours of work and planning on the part of the staff. These hours are well spent because as the years go by you will cherish it more and more for the memories it recallsg for those friends of high school that you have not seen for years, possibly since graduation. Keep it and treasure it. Joseph Temby. BOARD OF EDUCATION Left to Right: Don Smith, Otto Halvorson, Allan Kirkwood SECRETARIES Left to Right: Mary jane Thalheimer, and Louise Griifith.

B. hy Bill Anderson who held the office of Activity Manager. On April 21 the junior class gave a very successful dance which replaced the annual junior play, the funds were used to sponsor the juniorfSenior Banquet. Many juniors participated in Band and Chorus as well as the many who were outstanding in sports. Toward the end of the year the juniors gave a very successful hanquet for the Seniors. Our class advisers were Miss Quick, Miss Foley, and Mr. Moe. Our class officers were: President, Holt Brewer: Vice President, Margaret Granger, Secretary, Pat Arm' strongg Treasurer, Doris Foster: Activity Manager, Barbara Clark. "llI'Nl 1201 THE SOPHOMORE CLASS OF 1943-44 C5089 The oiiicers of the Sophomore Class of 43f44 were elected by their classmates because of their ambition and determination to carry out the will of the class. They are: President .............................................................................. Neil Weeks Vice President ........ .................. Bo b Bond Secretary ................. ......... Be nny Tabalon Treasurer ....................... ....................... V ivian Anderson Activity Manager ......... ............................... F rancis Proulx Advisers ...................... ........... M r. Burnett, Mrs. Sheppard, Miss Prahinski, Miss Jamison The Sophomores are traditionally the victims of the Seniors and Juniors because they are the new arrivals of the Senior High. They are given the honor of serving at the Junior and Senior Banquet, also of putting on the entertainment. And they are the guests of the Juniors and Seniors at the annual Sophomore Mixer given at the beginning of the year for the Sophomores to get acquainted. There have been some outstanding athletes in the 10th grade class. Outstanding in football, track and going to the top in basketball. There has been high spirit and vitality in the Sophomore class and they showed their effort to get ahead. THE FRESHMAN CLASS OF 1943-44 GNOXD Under the leadership of Larry Kramer as president the freshman class has en- joyed an active and interesting year. The outstanding activity was the ninth grade party given in the cafeteria. It was a basket social and a good time was had while selling the baskets, eating and the dancing thatlfollowed. It is also well to note that the Freshman Class won all the Bond sales contests held with the whole student body participating. This fact alone proved the Fresh' man's worthiness to become Senior High School students next year. The ninth grade did well in sports also. Although Junior High interscholastic football was not played the ninth grade had a good time playing and scrimmaging the High School "B" squad. In basketball the squad did fairly well, playing 10 games and coming out with five wins and five losses. Officers are: President ............. ...........

BOARD OF CONTROL GWOSQ The Board of Control, consisting of Associated Student Body officers and repref sentatives from each home room, is the elected governing body of the school. The Board discusses problems and difficulties which arise in connection with student activif ties and recommends to the students solutions for them. Some of the accomplishments this year were the beginning of the Recreation Center and the make-up of an Honor Roll. The Recreation Center has not yet been established but the gymnasium is serv' ing the purpose until a building is fixed for it. Some of the activities that take place are dancing, pingfpong, volleyball and badminton. Many of the students have turned out to support this Center and perhaps next year we will have a building for it. The Honor Roll is a memorandum of the students who have attended Top-Hi and are now in the service. We hope to have this roll completed soon. The student body feels that a commendable piece of work has been done by the Board this year. Back Row-B. Bond, Mr. Temby fadviserj, E. Shively, C. Hagerman, V. Widmeyer, R. Halvorson, H.

I STAGE CREW The TopfHi Stage Crew finished a very successful year in 1944. The main purf pose of the stage crew is to handle the lighting and control board for all ammblies and plays, building scenery and equipment for the stage. Some of the things ac' complished by the stage crew were: The installation of a new 4000-watt dimmer. The building of a new cabinet for the portable public address system. A new net drape. A new drop curtain for scenic effect. The stage crew did an exceptionally good job in lighting and scenic effects of the Chirstmas play and should receive much credit for the success of the play. This year a new program has been outlined so that when any faculty member uses the stage, the services of one of the stage crew members was made available to assist him in any way possible. Mr. Russell Day was adviser for the stage crew and was very much responsible for the success that was achieved. Holt Brewer and Ron Halvorf son became very efficient in the handling of the control board and lighting effects achieved thereon. Other members of the stage crew were: Philip Allen, Jim Ward, Lewis Grubenoff, Cecil Hagerman, Lewis Kukes, Bill Pope and Wayne Walker. Standing-L. Kukes, L. Grubenoff, J. Ward, H. Brewer, P.

Kolma has played at all football and basketball games as well as many school and civic programs. The Band consists of 38 members. The Band is made up of both Junior and Senior high students. This year the Band has had more of a variety of music than in the past. Due to this fact the student body as a whole has appreciated the band more. There are not very many seniors in the band so we should have a good band again next year. Back Row-W. Brink, B. Rivard, D. Irvin, M. McDonald, A. Scrivner, D. Gibbs, M. Walker, T. Rutledge, L.

SENIOR FAREWELL F5919 Due to the world crisis at this time many of our members have already said "Farewell" to their high school days and have gone out to greet a new and very diff ferent world.

Now we, the members of the class of "44" who remain, go out to join those other members in their "new world" and "fond memories." Yes, we are anxious to take our place among them and yet we can not help feeling a pang of regret as we say gocdfbye to cur Alma Mater.
