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. 

North Numbers

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.
