The Elgin Huskies had a very successful season in basketball
in 1940 and 41. losing only lwro ball games all season and thus
making h story for old Elgin High.
T he Huskies turned otv: an all-veteran team in 40, and with
the skilled coaching of Coach Gibson, the team, with its small
bu speedy boys ended the season with 18 out of 20 gomes to its
cied' . This is a record that Elgin High is very proud to hold.
Although they lost only two games, tbe boys came out sec-
'. ord in the Tu-valley league, which entitled them to a trip to
John Day. Oregon, to the district tournament. The boys lost out
V in their second game of the tournament, but made a very good
showing again . Hie team that went to the state tournament at

In 1926 Elgin High packed their football suits in moth
balls, never to be donned by the Elginiles agan. Fourteen
years have flown by since '.he strenuous sport was dropped, and
now much to everyone’s enthusiasm, students again had the
pleasure of cheering Huskie teams on the gridiron. However.
4here was a notable contrast between the scene of 1926 and that
of 1940. For the mighty Huskies sported 22 brand-new outfits
during the past year. Likewise :he years had taken their toll
to such an extent that the interest and enthusiasm for football
is far from keen.
Coach Gibson was badly handicapped by lack of material as
there were only about 16 boys regularly reporting for practice,
of whom only one had any previous experience and many had
never so much as seen a football game. Despite these drawbacks,
with long hard hours of practice by the players and coach alike,
a surprisingly effective team was rounded in o shape. By look-
ing at the won and o»i columns the Huskies did not have a very
good season, compared to records in basketball and baseball, but
can justly be as proud of football as of the win-studded records
of other sports.

IVER MASTER SON,
During the year, the Seniors had several activities given for
them. On their sneak-day. they went to Walla Walla and spent
the day enjoying airplane rides and the beauties of the park in
that city. At the close of the year they were given the Junior-
Senior banquet, and the Alumni banquet.HITSKIE TRACKS

The Student Police for the school year 1940 and 1941 con-
sisted of the following members: Carl Giltner. Freshman; Joan
Tuttle. Sophomore; Alice Wiess. Junior; Myron Hallgarth, Sen-
These members played an important part dur ng the basket-
ball season by putting out advert’slng and taking tickets at tho
games. Their duty was also to keep order in the gymnasium.
Student police also have charge of directing traffic at night,
base ball games.
There were no eausflties in the police force this year.
The firemen have been very active in the school year of
I94 0-’41. Their duty is to patrol the building in case of fire
and to see that everyone is out. At least one fire drill practice
is held every month. The firemen have special duties to per-
form, shutting windows and doors, shutting off electric current,
and guiding students down the stairways.
The staff consists of eight members: Tom Barnes. Truman
Hebener, Jim Chandler, Myron Hallgarth. Esley Wilson. Kill
Nock. Joe Blackman and Orval Trump.
The las play of :he year was “M’liss. My Western Miss”,
piven to help finance the Junior-Senior banquet. The cast is as
George Smith, know'» as “Bummer” the town loafer. Dale Myrick;
M’iiss. h s daughter. Genevie U ng; John Gray. the schoolmaster.
Dimer Smi.h; Yuba Bill, a native westerner, Esley Wilson: Mrs.
Dona Moffits, landlady of the Roaring Dog Hotel. Mildred Down-
ing: Clytie Moffi.s, her daught er. Maxine Hatcher; Bess Star-
light, an actress. Ida Reed: Clara Hunting, from the city. Marilyn
I at en; Carter Langdcn. her fiance. Bill Nock; Judge McSnaggley,
lho law, Marvin Ryedam. Director .M ss Wales.
In he IL’tle mining town of Smith’s Pocket in the Sierras,
lives George Smith and his young daughter. M’liss. Smith is
1 nown as “Bummer”, tho town loafer, for about the only work
he does is to work a small claim occasionally, believing that one
day I' will yield great wealth. The only one who shares his con-
lidince is M’liss. All others jeer at the old man. UnbeknowTn
to Smi.h. a brother of his has died in the East and left Smith
his eo Ire for une. Two schemers from the East arrive in
Smith’s Pocket fortified with this knowledge and plan to do
away with Smith, pose as relatives and gain possession of the
fortune. Old Smith is killed and the blame is placed on young
John Gray, the schoolmaster, with whom M’liss is in love. How
M’liss clears the good name of Gray and outwits the schemers
forms the basis of a thrilling and exciting play.HUSKIE TRACKS
