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
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.
