WSQBCATION ' ' '
During our 12 years of school each day we have looked out of the windows
of our classrooms and seen the mountains and skies of the land we live ing from these
windows we have watched the winter snow pile against our school and the burning
summer sun heat down upon the roof-tops of our homes. We of the Elko County
High School have spent our present lives growing up among the sage anil sunsets of
Nevadag our county, our town, and our school have grown from the sand hills and
valleys of this great land. All around us, no matter where, we see the west and its
peopleg our heritage. This is our land and they are our people. In this land and
with these people we will live and make our homes. We, as seniors, dedicate this
book to this land, the west-"OUR WEST.',

The Senior Class of 1946 presented the annual
Senior Class play, November 2, 1945. The play,
'AThe Yankee King," under direction of E. D.
Grace, had a large cast. The leading characters,
Ma and Pa, were played hy Ida Bess Sanderson and
Iohn Patterson, respectivelyg and the supporting
,M roles hy io other ahle Seniors.
The opening scene gave the audience a glimpse
into the domestic life of the Hinkle familyg Ma,
Pa, Marion and Wilbur. They appeared to be a
very normal group hut it was soon discovered that
Pa was the heir to the throne of Laurania. After
a series of harrowing but hilarious incidents the
play concluded in a surprise note revealing the
henpecked Pas as master of his house and the
incident in Laurania all a had dream.

The student b l
ocy was very fortunate this year to he entertained by a short one-act
p ay with an all-Frosh cast. The cast members were as follows: Edith Eckman, Bobby Parkin-
son, Martha Hill, and Agnes Glennon. The play, "Sparkin"', under the direction of Ezra
Grace, was the story of a hillbilly boy courting his girl. lt showed the complications that can
arise when the girlls grandmother doesn't exactly approve of the match. After a series of laughs
and screams of excitement the play came to a pleasing climax. S. K

BASKETBALL ' ' '
Amazingly cunning teamwork. and hrilliant all-around playing plus excellent school
spirit plummeted Elko High to one of its greatest showings ever made at a State meet. Ou
fast, hard-hitting offense was led by four one-year letter men, Smales, llerrueta, Johnson, and
Higgins. The remaining position was ably filled hy Rood, a promising Sophomore.
Elko started oiT her hall season hy overpowering a strong Idaho team. This game added
new zest to the haskethall season, since this is the hrst time we have played an out-of-State team
since hefore the war. To the surprise of the whole State Elko fought its way through twelve
consecutive games, winning them all, overwhelming the two strong eastern teams, VVinnemucca
and White Pine. Uur return games with White Pine proved to he the lirst defeats of the season
for Elko. These two games left VVhite Pine and Elko evently matched. The zone tournament
at WVinnemueea provided the hattleground on which Elko and Wliite Pine fought out their tie.
Summing up this year's haskethall season, we can say that 1946 ha
of Elko across the athletic annals of the State.

This year's interclass basketball
tournament was won by the Sopho-
more team, when, after many spirited
struggles, they overtook the Seniors
in the final game with a score of
The first two games were won by
the Iuniors and the Sophs, the Iuniors
defeating the Frosh 57-IS. They had
no trouble at all in winning. How-
ever, the Frosh gave their best and
really played a nice game. The
Sophomore-Senior game, however
showed in the First half two well-
matched teams, and in the second
half a victorious Sophomore team,
who won by a score of 28-17.
The next game was between the
two winning teams and proved to be
the most ecxiting game of the tourna-
ment. With the score 23-22, the
Iuniors leading and only twenty
seconds left in the game, Tommy
Smales sunk a long shot, thus win-

TRACK' ' '
Through the history of our school lilko has kept
a State-wide reputation of having a strong track squad.
In the past three years Elko has chalked up a hrst,
second, or third place at the State meets. This is the
first real all-out track year since the war and Elko has
made a good showing at the dual meets and relays
in different parts of the State. Elko sent another great
team to State this year and so far has kept up its hard-
hitting reputation. The pictures on this page show
two of our track letter-men, Higgins and Smales,
brushing up on the fine points of some track events.

Much of the fun we've had in school this year we owe to the student council. It is this com
mittee which grants student body awards, elects the POHOB editor, disperses certain student body
funds, and makes all necessary revisions in the constitution of Elko High. Our student body ofhcers,
the four class presidents, and two representatives from each class make up this group, who, with Miss
Markey and Mr. Brome as sponsors have aided in bringing about a year filled with success.
The governing body of the school is the executive committee. It supervises all tctixities
carried on during the school year. Alvin McCuistion, our Student Body President, presided over the
committee with the help of the sponsor, Miss Markey. Among the many important duties performed
by this group was the arrangement of the calendar of school events which has played such a viluiblc
part in the campus life of the student body of Elko High. M. P
