North Alumni News! AUGUST 2010
MEMORY BOOK Wichita North High School 1437 N. Rochester Wichita, Kansas 67203 (316) 973-6300 http://north.usd259.org
Most of you are familiar with the “75 Years of Memories Booklet” published in conjunction with North’s 75th birthday celebration back in 2005. We had several leftover and I have given them away during reunion tours and whenever you come to visit. Well, we are almost out of them. Since everyone seems to enjoy this ‐ I thought it would be fun to put a new updated book together to sell for a minimal cost.
I am collecting stories to add to this North history book of sorts. This booklet will include; History of North High, Traditions, Alma Mater, Proverb verse, notable graduates, and alumni stories. Send me your memories, traditions, pictures and interesting North tidbits or suggestions of things you would like to see in this booklet.

PERSONALITY POINTERS Copied from “Redskin Trails” A Student Handbook November 1943
1) Watch your voice; an attractive speaking voice costs nothing but effort. 2) If you are interested in other people, you will learn to listen as well as talk. 3) If you wish friends, be friendly, do your part. Make new friends; you should have a wide group of friends as well as close intimate ones. 4) Do not be conspicuous in the halls or in any public place with your boy or girl friend. You cannot afford to appear ignorant regarding good taste. 5) At social affairs observe the following: a) Speak to the hostess when you arrive. b) Join in all the activities and you will have a good time. c) Find what interests the other person and let him talk about it. d) The boy should see that the girl is served if refreshments are offered. e) Thank one of the hostesses on your way out. f) Don’t chew gum; it is extremely bad taste in any social gathering.
A special Thank You to whoever left the 1943 student handbook on my desk. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it and will share more in future newsletters.
