National School Assembly Programs This year for the first time Gem School students and members of the community were privileged to have the opportunity to see such fine entertainment programs as the National School Assemblies of Los Angeles brought to our school. During the school year such novel programs as the Melodeers, Toni Gauer, the Donas, the Marimbas, Lewis Magic, Deep Sea Diver, and Mr. America were presented to large and appreciative audiences. Junior-Senior Banquet The theme of the Junior-Senior banquet of the spring of 1949 was HC1ouds.H The Juniors carried out this theme pretty well by having gymnasium amid many stars, rainbows, and cotton clouds. On the stage they had erected a miniature farm, airport, lake with a light- house, resort, rivers, mountains, and trees. A colored a vivid effect to those in the balcony of being far acceptance speeches, a delicious banquet, enter- tainment by the Juniors, and an after-dinner speech by everybody the banquet in the balcony of the spotlight playing on this scene gave above the earth. After welcoming and the Senior's sponsor, Mr! Berry, attended a line party in Colby. District Speech-Drama Festival--March 26, 1949 Last spring the Gem speech class under the direction of Mr. McArthur took 8. One-aC t play to the District speech and Drama Festival at Fort Hays Kansas State College. The play selected was HThe White Lawnn by Roger M, Buschfield, Jr., which had been previously presented in this community by almost the same cast. Peggy, Estelle, Jerry, and Duane composed the cast and Darlene and Carrol handled the lighting effects. We received a ll, or excellent, rating which was only one step below that which qualifies students to enter in the State Festival at Kansas University. Although we were disappointed that we didn't quite make the grade, nevertheless we felt it was something to outrate Atwood, Oberlin, Oakley, Ellis, Hays, La Crosse, and St. Joseph's. Kanapolis, Smith Center, and Wakeeney also received ll ratings. Only Russel rated l, or superior. Credit staff who thank Mr. class for take this articles, In Appreciation should here be given to Beverley Mentlick and Estelle Treat of the have drawn the fine division pages found in this annual. We wish to Rutschman and Mr. Crawford for giving us permission to use Typing ll some of our annual work. Also the annual staff and Mr. Beery wish to opportunity to thank everyone who has submitted pictures, written or in any way helped to make this year's annual a success.

In the fall we began by playing volleyball. Perhaps our most interesting game of the sea- son was the one we played with Grinnell. We were very proud to think that we won that game and thus we set a high goal for the tourn- ament held at Menlo which followed We were very disappointed when we lost to Page City which eliminated us from the tournament Dur ing our volleyball season we beat Levant, Sel- den, and Grinnell and lost to Rexford and len- Our basketball season began early in December We started off with a Hbang' by defeating Selden and followed through by win- ning from Rexford and Edson We were taken down from our high horses when Leoville de feated us 61 to 52 After that game we seemed to go into a slump because we won only one game since then But as a whole we had excellent teamwork and good sportsmanship This year we will lose the four Senior girls which will be quite a loss Treat was our highest scoring girl in basketball and we hate to see her leave The following are the scores of our basket ball games Gem Gem Gem Gem Gem Gem Gem Gem Gem Gem Selden Edson Rexford Leoville Leoville Selden Rexford Menlo Edson lenlo Gem Vs Edson Service Spike' Grade Athletics This fall found the Tiger Cubs sweating it out on the gridiron. It 15 the first time that the Gem Grades have participated in competitive football. They only got to play two games, both of them with Rexford. The boys believe that it would be a good idea to add touch football to permanent athletic standing. The Gem team operated from a T-formation and depended on speed and trick plays to complete an undefeated season. Gem defeated Rexford 30-0 and 43-0. The basketball season got underway with eleven boys from the two grade rooms. They were Bob Davis, Ronnie Higerd, Ward Munkres, Lester Haremza, Fred Loseke, Ronnie Barnett, Bob Saddler, Kenny Havice, Carl Mellor, Vernon Flanagin, and Bill Weishaar Fred, Ronnie, Vernon, and Bill lettered last year We were very fortunate in being able to purchase new suits this year We playw host to Rexford, Grinnell, Edson, Selden, Dresden, Leoville, and Levant in a double elimination Tournament February 10 and 11 Edson took first, Gem second Rexford third, and Selden Consolation The Cubs played a press1ng man for man defense which changed to a full court zone once their opponents reached midcourt and again changed to a tight zone if penetrated any deeper into the defense They made the constant threat of a fast break for offense but also had set plays to use on zone defenses The season's record Gem Grinnell Selden Edson Rexford Leoville Leoville R 32 xl semen l Rexford A 1 Levant 5 dy Tournament 1 Levant 0 Grinnell Edson Edson Levant Tigers Cubs O I lg ma. rw Touchdown coming up' www Q mme 1 'Slew H """"i Q 'I QFQKQYJE 30 ' I ' 11 ----------- 13 M A 27 ----------- 11 2 11 ----------- 29 1 14 "-"""" V: 4 -., 31 ----------- 13 ng- 4 H .
