The French Clubs
Le Cercle Francis, was organized into two sep-
arate groups this year, French Club I and II. They
were not considered as activity clubs so it was nec-
essary to have meetings during the class periods
every month. The French Club is the oldest club
in Manhattan High School. It was originated by
Mrs. Robert Kuhn, and Miss Snapp has been the
sponsor for the last two years.
The programs of French Club I consisted of
speakers, contests, and plays. Mr. Pyle, a French
speaker f1'om Kansas State College, spoke about the
French Christians and other customs of France.
Later as a program the class had a baseball game,
all of the questions being asked about French gram-
mar. Also there was a French knowledge contest,
the grand prize being a candy bar.
Officers of French I were Betty Boone, mlle. le
president, Irene Swanson, mlle. le secretaireg and
Victoria Majors, mmle. le president des programmes.
An outstanding meeting of French Club II was
the Christmas party at which time the drama,
"Three Little Pigs", was presented in French.
A Valentine party was held in February. At
this time valentines were exchanged among the
At one program a quiz contest was given about
Officers of French Club II were Dorothy May

vice-presidentg Martha Baird, mlle. le secrettaireg
and Barbara Bouck, mlle. le president des pro-

entire club was divided into three science divisions,
each working on different phases of physical science.
The astronomy division, with David Gates as
chairman, made a six-inch reflecting telescope which
was entered in the Kansas Junior Academy of Sci-
ence meeting at Lawrence. Later the group plotted
stars with the telescope. Many varied programs
and numerous guest speakers added to the interest
of the group.
The radio division of the club was headed by Gabe
Sellers. Discussions on topics concerning radio made
up the largest share of the programs. A photo-elec-
tric cell was made and entered in the Kansas Jun-
ior Academy of Science meeting at Lawrence.
No1'man Crook was the chairman of the aeronaut-
ics division of the Physics Club. Discussions were
led by different members of the group on numerous
phases of aviation. A sextant was completed and
entered in the Junior Academy of Science meeting
at Lawrence by the group.
The various officers of the camera division of the
club were Donald Sollenberger, president: Ward
Haylett, vice-president and program chairman, and
Paul Jorgenson, secretary-treasurer.
Throughout the year the club meetings were de-
voted mainly to the students and their activities
along the photographic line. Once in a while speak-
ers came in to give the fans pointers about
what's what in the photographic world-but for the
main part, the fans themselves planned and carried
out the programs.
The club's second semester activities featured a
snapshot contest. We won't go into the particulars
here fexcept to say that the prize winning picture
appea1's in this annual! because the important thing
is that no other club has sponsored a contest-and it
just goes to show, that though the Camera Club was
only started at the beginning of this school year, it
has accomplished a lot and given its members a

Those music lovin' seniors really brought down
the high ratings at the annual Music Festival at
Topeka. Betty Anne Faubion and David Gates were
rated highly superior for their piano and clarinet
solos, respectively. A superior rating was given
Edith Hanna for her violin solo, and Margaret Col-
lins was given an excellent plus rating for her vocal
About this same time, Faye Clapp, our artistic
senior, won second prize in the individual awards
offered to contestants in the Art exhibit at Linds-
borg. A high honor to be bestowed on such an un-
With their audience "rolling in the aisles", the
Senior play cast deserved the highest of praises.
"The Torchbearers" had a most noteworthy cast,
headed by Martha Baird,-oh these actresses! Bar-
bara Bouck and Bill Docking, Junior play leads, sup-
plied more than their share of laughs. Practically
stealing the show was Bill Packer, another "new"
student, as an eccentric and dapper gentleman tif
you can believe itj. Other members of the cast were:
Mary Margaret Arnold, Betty Ann Faubion, Dor-
othy May Summers, Mary Louise Emery, Merrill
Peterson, Bruce Bryan, Norman Ross, and Russell
Due largely to the work of the senior members,
Manhattan was host to the first annual convention
of the Kansas Fede1'ation of Student Councils. Al-
most seventy-five students from twenty schools were
entertained by us, and had a most enjoyable time
iso they saidj-at least it was our sincere wish that
they did! Mary Louise was the president of the con-
vention, a most worthy position! She had her share
of the trouble, too-just ask her!
The Senior Sneak, as sneaks always are, wasn't
a surprise to anyone, nevertheless the seniors did
enjoy it. As usual, lots of tricks were played on the
gals, but lots of fun was had by both male and fe-
Even though the class was a "remarkable" one

We cannot write of the Camera Club without men-
tioning that it is a member of the Junior Academy
of Science-a fact that Mr. Parrish and his group
are extremely proud of, and rightly so.
