saznmfammm mug! This year, the book you hold follows the theme, "Down Melody Lane with Tohiscanf' As soloists and as members of many varied ensembles, all members of the administration, faculty, and student body have added their notes to the l953 hit parade. lt is our wish that all these close the year with the knowledge that their notes, however soft or uncertain, were blended into the Top-Hi tune as the best they could give. Now the song is ended. But the melody remains forever in the hearts of those who shared in its singing. "Hail to thee, our dear old Top-Hi, we'll remember you." 7fne Olykct of One Hffedian Adding a very important note to the harmony of this year and many before it was our old friend, Al Owens. He be- gan his service to District 202 by acting as a member of the school board from t March, l935, to lune, 1937. ln l937, he transferred his efforts to the maintenance crew, and during the following l6 years, has set a pattern seldom equalled for cheerful, unselfish, and efficient perform- ance of duty. From a broken window to a balky furnace or a new room, all mat- ters of repair, replacement, and alteration are met with pleasant competence and prompt attention. Toppenish students from kindergarten to graduating seniors have seen the pleasant, busy Mr. Owens as he hurries from one task to the next. ln sincere appreciation, we dedicate the l953 Tohiscan to you, Al Owens. 2
