TOPPENISH HIGH SCHOOL
Many of the happiest hours of our lives have been spent
within the portals of clear old Top-Hi. In this 1947 Tohiscan
we present words and pictures to portray the many great
joys, the very few small griefs, and the endless fun that was
ours during this school year.
To the Pep Club and their advisor, Miss Chris-
tensen, for their hard work and good sportsman-
ship, for their interest in the school, their ambition
and initiative, their pep and enthusiasm we dedi-
cate this 1947 TOHISCAN.
Sept. 3-School begins.
Sept. 20--First warm-up game with Zillah, here. We won.

THE SUPERINTENDENT SPEAKS
We learn poorly if we are working at the process only because some person or group in
authority insists that we should learn. We learn much better if we really believe that we need an
education, but we never fully test our capacity as students until the time comes when we get our
hearts set on doing something which requires a certain background of knowledge. Then, as we
attempt to build up this required background, we may approach our real capacity as learners.
Therefore, my hope for the young people of Toppenish isg that, as time moves on, more and
more of them may have their curiosity stimulated early in their high school years through having
made an early and wise choice of a vocation.
THE PRINCIPAL SPEAKS
Poor indeed are the boy and girl who have no school to which they can be loyal, of which
they can be proud and in whose achievements they can glory. lf, perhaps, some personal contribu-
tion has made possible your school's accomplishment, then there is added cause for just pride.
Herein is the record of you and your school for the year 1946 and 1947. Your instructor,
your class, your team, your pal-they are all here. With them you will associate triumphs and
defeats, your work and your fun, even, perhaps your hopes for the future. Keep this book. lt is
you and yours-with the years its value will grow.
To the seniors who are leaving-ma ou take some trace of intellectual enthusiasm with
. . D lf Y, . .
you. May your ideals stand the trials of lifes experience and may your dreams worth dreaming

The Senior Ball. "Winter Wonderlandf' was a very successful event. This yearls seniors were
the first to have such an event and it is the hope of the class that this will be made an annual affair.
Grid-iron winners of the inspirational award were seniors, Larry Kramer and Chuck Bowers.
There were a number of good senior players on the football squad. -
The class of '47 has used its dramatic ability too. As seniors they presented the three act
comedy, "Junior Miss."
The senior sneak, a privilege to which students look forward from freshman days, was really
a special event and everyone had a wonderful time.
And then graduation! School days at Top-Hi are over but we have for our own, memories
and a diploma.
The officers who served the junior class this year were: Polly lhatuan, presidentg Delores
llrink. vice-president: Doris Ucker. secretary: Bill Utey. treasurerg and liarl llrost. activity manager.
Some of the activities for which the class was responsible were: ,lunior-Senior lianquet and

The Top-Hi Wildcats' 1946 football season was a very successful one. They played seven
conference games and won six of them. They won the first game of the season with Zillah by a
score of 19-0. The next game was a conference game with Sunnyside. They also won this game by
a score of 19-6. A week later they played Selah and ended up on the long end of a score of 53-0.
ln this game there were seven touchdowns made and seven different men scored. Their first defeat
of the season came at the hands of the Yakima Pirates. This was one of the hardest fought games
of the season. Yakima came out on the long end of a 13-6 score. ln the first half of this game there
was no scoring. Toppenish scored first in the third quarter, but later saw Yakima push over two
touchdowns in the last quarter to defeat them. It was in the next game that Top-Hi was handed its
first league defeat by the Pasco team by a score of 21-0. The next week Top-Hi went up to Cie Elum
and played in six inches of snow but won by a score of 13-0. Then came the annual Armistice. Day
game with Vvapato. ln the last practice session before this big game Larry Kramer hurt his hip and
was unable to play. liven without his help, we were able to hand Wapato their first Armistice Day
defeat in 6 years and also their -first defeat of the season. The score at the final whistle was 13-6.
The next week end the Wildcats went to Kelso to play a post season game. They took a 26-6 beating.
This week end Kenny Cooley was picked the outstanding player of Southwestern Washington.
During this season one player, Larry Kramer, was picked on the All-Valley team. He was
also picked on the All-State team to play in Seattle next fall. Several players were chosen for hon-
orable mention on the All-Valley team. Larry Jensen was named honorable captain for this year.
Larry Kramer and Chuck Bowers were chosen for the inspirational award. Bob Bogucki, who weighs
only 135 pounds, was one of our most valuable backs. Chuck Bowers, who started the season at
guard, was later shifted into the fullback spot and was said to be one of the hardest driving men in
that spot in the valley.
The following boys, 17 of whom are seniors, made their letters: Seniors: Armstrong, Bogucki,
Bowers, Busby, Cherry, Cooley, Dean, Gresham, Hadley, Hale, Jensen, Kissler, Kramer, Patton, Scott,

The Top-Hi basketball team with Bill Stephens as captain, completed a very successful sea
son with 18 of their 22 games going to the "Winn Side of the ledger. This gave the "Cats', an .818 per-
g Some of the highlights of the season were: The winning of the Darrel Tucker Jamboree in Wap-
ato, nipping Auburn by a score of 36 to 34 in the closing seconds of the game, and beating Selah
by the decisive score of 39 to 23 to cop the Northern Division Championship.
Of the play of the squad through the season, Coach Day had to say-"Starting the season with
veterans returning from the year before and the addition of Patil Ortolf, who had returned from the
military service to complete his schooling, the Wildcats drove through early season practice games
for seven straight wins and also took first place in the Jamboree held in Wapato. With two losses
in conference play the Cats finished first in the Northern Division play.
"Good material, good floor play and, above all, excellent teamwork play paid off. Unforeseen
circumstances during the latter part of the season and during the Yakima Valley Tournament helped
to keep the Cats away from a coveted spot in the state tourney. All in all, it was a good seasonglefs
have a few more."
Those fellows who won their major "T" in basketball were: Bill Stephens, Paul Ortolf, Lar-
ry Kramer. Don Lundberg and Don Cherry.
The schedule of games is as follows:
