Track has been the chief interest in previous years, but due to transportation difficulties all track meets were cancelled this year. This took the joy of competition from the par- ticipants: therefore, interest in this sport dropped. However, track was cultivated to some extent in connection with the spring football program, Tracksters also did additional work in their own branch of the sport. Several underclassmen appeared for this athletic test and their talents will be ready for use should they be needed in future years. For the first time in several years, there was a spring football turnout. Kinks were ironed out and prospects for next years team proved to be more than satisfactory. Underclassmen and eighth graders were present for this fun and valuable football education Baseball practice was held Saturdays and Sundays to complete the pro gram Coach Hess worked faithfully with his boys in the spring program CHEER LEADERS Originally there were eight cheer leaders two from each class but two members dropped out The club chose co presidents Barbara Birkeland and Lucille Hanford There were two pep rallies during the year The girls led yells at all home games and at the return St Marys game in Great Falls Official costumes of this group are white sweaters and red sklrts LEFT TO RIGHT Mary Eloff Mary Ellen Ennis Lucille Hanford Barbara Birkeland Wilma Blackwood Emogene Anderson ill' CHEER LE DERS FIRST ROW Robert Anderson Stanley Smlth Stanley V1n1on Donald Reynolds Donald Archel Eugene Frle mg SECOND ROW Ted Kelley Donald Knudson Char es Bradley Clay Flsher Mr Adrlen Hess Ronald Archer Wa1te1 Stanton Donald Jackson THIRD ROW-Charles Brodock Raymond York James Whlte Harlow Warden Jack Leplex Chrls Small Orval Serlght Th B Club IS an athletlc organlzatzon of men students who have earned thelr letters 1n basketball or foo ball There are a total of tmentv one members th1s year as fourteen new members were added to the sev n members from DYBVIOUS years The offlcers are Smlth sponsor Mr Hess The B Club sponsored a danc follomng the County Tournament and a banquet vas serv d bs the home economlcs department ln thelr honor short y after the D1Stf1Ct Tournament A prlvate dance was held after thls 0CCaSl0ll 'VIus1C was furnlshed by the Plax bots It 15 an honor to be a member of the B Club vxhose letters shovt hard vsork and determmauon to mn falrlx ln sports B CLUB T J U 1 l . 1 2 - , . 1 , ' , l .
