This year We won a game, squeezing by Bethany in the first game of the season with a score of 13-12. Next year we should have a very good team. We lose a great deal in the line, such as Robinson, a fine offensive center and a better defensive line- backer. Wilhelm, at the right tackle position, was a very rough man for any opposition. Turner, for one year experience, turned out a very good year as left tackle. Traxler was laid out early in the year because of brain concussion, but did very Well the part he played. Romine, one of the all-around men on the team, played as guard and fullback and proved to be equally good at both positions. Don Yutzy is the only backfield man We will lose this year. He did a very fine job for his first year. Bob Conlin will be leaving a spot hard to fill. Arthur will have the familiar face of Fults, hard driving and hard hitting halfback. Mattox, Knight, Schultz will make up the rest of the backfield. Some of the returning linemen are Dick Yutzy at end, and a glue fingered pass receiver, and Blaudow, who did the punting, The rest of the line be made up of frosh and sophs. The boys who sit on the bench have to be remembered, also. Coach Lukachik is looking forward to a very good year and years to come. He says the boys have it if they will just put it out. e282 Q1 ""'-X E g xl 395 -. .avi sim 1 1 A :WY - 4 Front row, left to right: Davy Conlin, Dick Baker, Bill Honn, Don Yutzy, Francis Blaudow, Maynard Knight, lack Mattox, Dick Robinson, Dick Yutzy, Iohn Dukeman.

Back row: Bob Haney, Iohn Blucker, Abe Grant, Roger Hallman, Rodney Ryan, Dean Hendrickson, Duane Basketball The basketball team got off to a slow start but after the third straight loss they opened the conference play with Newman. Going into the game with all odds against them the Knights proved themselves real champions by defeating the big Newman team 47 to 42 to take control of the Okaw Conference. After defeating Atwood they met Villa Grove, this ball game would decide who would be the leader of the conference. lt so happened that Villa Grove proved to have the edge by a narrow margin of two points and came out victorious 39 to 37. This game will long be remembered by local fans as one of the best games played on the home floor for several years. Oye, Bussy Anglin. Handicapped in height against Sullivan we received our worst defeat of the season, 42 to 27. As this goes to press we have five games remaining on our schedule. Even though our record stands at 6 wins and ll losses, that is no indication of the ball team we have. We have suffered all season by the lack of height but with speed we have it. Two hard driving guards such as Don Yutzy and Iohnny Dukeman added much to our team. We also benefitted from the center play of Francis Blaudow and Maynard Knight. Such sharp- shooters as Billy I-lonn and Dick Yutzy contributed to a fine showing. The return of lack Mattox who, suffering a broken arm wasn't with the team until after holidays, and the exceptional floor play of Dick Robinson were also factors which made for a very successful season. Weremember how Young America H. S. beat us 44 to 22 on our home floor and how we came back later in the season to defeat them 59 to 55 in an overtime period. Most of our games were close and exciting games. The boys displayed wonderful basketball, the type of basketball Coach Mulkey and all the followers were proud of. We were proud they wore the colors of our school. The squad will lose two seniors this year, Don Yutzy and Dick Robinson. They will be missed, but with a little height added we are looking forward to green pastures and a bright future for boys who love to play and who never say quit.

We look forward to seeing Captain Don Yutzy continue his stellar perform- ances in the dashes, pole vault and broad jump. Don was the leading scorer with 92-9f2U. His record of Z2 points in the triangular meet against New- man and Atwood. l-le won three firsts in the lUU, 220, 440 yard dashes and second in broad jump and a tie for first in the pole vault. We are indeed hap- py to have two fine distance men return to our track team, Wilhelm a.nd Dukeman. Romine will be a great threat in the broad jump as he showed steady improvement all season. Mattox and Knight will be back to add to their height in the high jump. We are expecting great hurdling from Blaudow, Stone, Yutzy, and Knight. Fults will be an improved dash man.

It also attended a music clinic at Charleston, participated in the Douglas County Music Fes- tival and in contest activities. The boys' group has taken part in all these activities. rthurite Staff The staff has worked hard this year to put out an annual. This is really the class year book. lt was produced almost entirely by the students themselves. Their advisers let them take the initiative in almost every instance. The revenue has come from noon concessions, a pop machine in the rec. room, as Well as a very successful circus. Of course the annual Senior Class Play was a great hit. They spent many days buzzing around town collecting advertising and selling subscriptions. Oh, those teachers that loved them when classes were interrupted for picture taking. lt was great fun. The staff hopes you think it has been worth their time and effort.

Iohn Krummel Roberta Hendrickson Nancy Pugsley 1 x49v Ronnie Fulis Senior Prophecy I am the "Spirit of the Class of 1950" I have watched over this group now for many years. just yesterday, December 3, l97O, one of the class members joined me in my celestial palace and now we are preparing for a trip around the world to revisit his old classmates. Yes, Marvin Shaw has come to his reward. The Pest Exterminator Company finally got him. Won't you climb on a cloud and join us in our journey? Down we drift toward earth. Look down there at that fertile farm land. Why, that's Bob Conlins farm and theres Dr. Robert Graham, veterinarian, working on some of Bobs sick sows. Going on we see a snappy looking trailer whizzing along the highway. Thats the home of Ioan Gaffney. Shes happily married to a traveling account- ant. Walking along the same road we see a ragged, dirty, ill-dressed but happy bum, Leonard Wilhelm. Hes enjoying a life of ease. Our cloud carries us over that little city of Arthur. As we drift over one backyard we see a clothesline sagging under the weight of sixteen children's clothes. Roberta Hendrickson's abode, no doubt. We revisit our old alma mater. In the Social Science department we find Doris Hansen teaching. She's well liked by all her inmates. A new section is being added to the city, Lacey Acres. Francis Lacey has laid out and is building the beautiful section. Dick Robinsons funeral home is doing a thriving business here with the able assist- ance of Dr. Lydia Schlabach, who is practicing in Arthur. Our cloud flies away and soon we're in the nation's capital. Floating by a hotel window we see Nancy Pugsley. Shes here to accept nomination to become our first woman President. Interviewing her is that ace-on-the-spot reporter, Pat "Brenda Starr" Conlin. The largest church in the world is being dedicated here tomorrow. We park our cloud on the high spire and look down to see john Krummel who serves as janitor in this high ecclesiastical structure. john seems very happy in his church work. As our cloud drifts away from Washington, D. C., out over the Atlantic we see a gigantic ocean steamer returning from Europe. Theres Peggy Leathermann, well-known Met opera star. She's been singing the lead in the opera of that well-known composer, john Haney. The opera is "Salome and Bye." Also on the ship is Horace "Roamin' " Romine. Hes returning from a lion hunt in Africa. He captures wild animals and brings them back for Delores Naugle's big wild animal show. Shes a very proficient animal trainer. Our cloud is drifting into "Gay Paree." We pass over the world famous beauty salon of Mademoiselle Marilyn Lowe. Paris has simply gone mad over her American hair styles. Theres Betty Mattox, famous actress, getting a beauty treatment. Our cloud leaves the earth and we are heaven bound. OOPS! What's that thing that just whizzed by? Its a rocket. Don Yutzy, wealthy playboy, is financing rocket trips to the moon. Stewart Traxler is chief engineer. There among the passengers is Harlin "jack Benny" Turner, well-known comedian. The people here on earth don't respond to his humor so he thought he would try the ones on the moon. With that we leave my charges behind. I hope you have enjoyed the trip.

For 45 years Huston-Patterson Corporation has been pro- ducing fine high school and college yearbooks . . . bools which have won honors in competitive showings and many expressions of appreciation from gratified clients. But, since a 1949 annual produced in our plant took FIRST place in competition with entries from FORTY-ONE states, we think we may be pardoned if our pride begins to show. We're not too proud, however, to give a large share of credit to the school's staff and faculty advisors. Such suc- cess never would come without the long hours of pains- taking care they devoted to the preparation of copy and layout. Yes, in the final analysis, it's co-operation that counts. Teamwork spells achievement in printing as well as on the football field or basketball court. Co-operation, teamwork-they are words which through too frequent use may have lost some of their meaning. But here at Huston-Patterson we still strive to give them their full import and significance in our yearbook printing as well as in all other phases of our business.
