Elgin, Oregon 97827Dedication
The sports field of the future in 1959 is the sports field of the present.
The Husky Tracks of 1959 carried a photograph showing the general manager of Mt. Emily Lumber Company and Elgi-
Superintendent Ray Osbum standing at the ’’site of Elgin's athletic field of the future. " Nearly twenty years later, th. in-
is a reality.
A football field, all-weather track and baseball diamond have materialized in less than a year, thanks to the hi. rc
Elgin High School students, staff, school board members, Boise Cascade, California-Pacific National, and Clarenct
Ringheim. The Husky Tracks staff dedicates this annual to those who helped make this dream come true.TABLE OF CONTENTS

to adjust to a new coach each
