Article from The Emporia Gazette by E. T. Lowther, ca. early
TWO OLD WARHORSES
of Kansas athletic
battles, forays and skirmishes dating
back half a century are pictured here on a visit at The Gazette office Thursday.
They are Arthur A. Schabinger (left) and Homer Woodson (Bill) Hargiss. Schabinger,
who now is retired and living in Florida, is
visiting relatives of his wife at LeRoy; Hargiss now lives in Topeka. They renewed
old times on the campus of the College of Emporia and attended the chapel announcement
of the $100,000 gift for a new College library, Thursday morning. "Schabie"
was perhaps C. of E.'s greatest all-around athlete in football, basketball and baseball.
Bill Hargiss came to C. of E. as a coach in 1910, after a stellar playing career
on old State Normal teams; later coached at the Teachers College, Oregon State and
K. U. Schabinger also is a former coach, at Ottawa U., Emporia State and Creighton
University. In this picture they are reminiscing about the "good old days"
with E. T. Lowther, of The Gazette.
