DUCATION IS the surest
safeguard of our democracy. An
enlightened citizenship is essen-
tial to its social well being and
progress. Whenever too little at-
tention is paid to this great
agency of democratic growth, the
nation is bound to suffer through
the inefficency of its people.

t is the youth of today who will have the task of rebuilding the world of tomorrow.
So it is our task to help them to be responsible, moral, healthy, and hopeful citizens.
Youth loves responsibility. They love the feeling of success in doing. This annual
itself is an example. So let us provide the opportunities for our fine youth. Today
democracy must not only be taught, it must be lived. To live democracy we need an
educational system which teaches our boys and girls to think through situations-
local, national and international. Let us not fail our youth!-but rather let us

Efficient and accurate, even in minute details, Mr. Lancaster
has made an excellent Superintendent as well as a teacher. He
has always been willing to give suggestions and advice to all
students, occasionally spicing conversations with a surprising
bit of humor.
Since he came here three years ago he has begun an annual
Music Week and started the yearly Homecoming, both new ideas
in Yates Center. He holds an A. B. degree from Phillips Uni-
versity, and an M. Ed. from Oklahoma University.
Miss Gunnerson, of the commercial department, has many
friends in the community acquired by her active participation
in community affairs and long years of service to the school.
Having the reputation of insisting upon perfect transcriptions
by her students, she and her department are often called upon
to type tests, programs, records, and announcements by all def
partments of the school. She has an A. B. degree and a Bachelor
of Accts. degree from Bethany College, Lindsborg, and graduate
work from Colorado State Teachers College, Greeley.
Master mathematician, Miss Ireland is also sponsor of the pep
club and Student Council, and is an expert amateur photogra-
pher. With a B. S. degree from K. S. T. C., Pittsburg, her prepara-
tion in mathematics was most thorough and extensive. She em-
phasized the linking of the fundamentals and theory of mathe-
matics with the practical application.
Miss Ireland, always conscientious in her work, carried much
of the responsibility for making the '41 Homecoming a success.
In divers ways she has been an influence for good throughout
English, literature, journalism-these are the subjects Mrs.
Sykes is credited with teaching on the enrollment blanksg but
besides these subjects her pupils learn impressionable lessons in
fairness, persistence, kindness and friendliness.
Mrs. Sykes' work is her hobby. She spends countless hours
working with her journalism class on the Wildcat's Howl, at-
tempting to read all books reported on by her students Cin so do-
ing she keeps herself well readl, and making out tests which she
thoroughly enjoys if she thinks she has created one that will
bring feigned sighs of despair from her class. She has a B. S.
degree from K. S. T. C., Emporia, and graduate work at the Uni-
versity of Kansas.
Years of patient service as sponsor of the Girl Reserves has
made Miss Geith remembered by her students. Her classes in
English profit by her keen mind and learn from her great say-
ings of famous people-one of which she writes on the black
board each week. Not only is she a lover of literature, she her-
self is an author.
From Western Union College in LeMars, Iowa, she has an A.
B. degree and graduate work at the University of New Mexico.
A man with an engaging and delightful personality is Mr.
Mohler, science and mathematics teacher. His many outside
activities include the sponsorship of the Hi-Y Club. He spends
much time at his hobby of gardening and poultry raising.
Mr. Mohler received his A. B. degree from the University of
Kansas, his B. S. in Education from Central Missouri State
Teachers College at Warrensburg. He has taken graduate work
at .Kansas State Teachers College, Emporia.
