49 Golf The four lowest scores in the qualifying tourna- ment which decided who would represent Manhat- tan were turned in by Hall Milliard, Jay Funk, El- mer Lutz, and Junior Lovell. The first match of the year was played at To- peka with Wyandotte and Topeka, the competition proved too stiff and the Manhattan lads came in last. Uzelac of Wyandotte was medalist with a 76 over Shawnee's well trapped layout, the Topeka golfers, however, had the low total for the four man team and won the match. The next week-end Topeka played here and nosed out a 659 to 556 victory over a water soaked course. The course was so wet the match had to be post- poned until afternoon so the water could be drained from the g1'eens. Schoonover of Topeka was med- alist with a 76. The Blues next match was a mid-week affair with Marysville on the Manhattan Country Club course. We won from the Marysville boys by the score of 8 to 4, Elmer Lutz was the medalist with a 72. Manhattan played a return match with Marysville the next week and again defeated them. This time the Blues won by a score of 'IV2 to 41!2, Hall Millia1'd was the medalist with a 76. Douglas Cave who had beaten Lovell out of the fourth man position played in this match. The Manhattan boys added another victory to their list when they played at Emporia's Invitation Tournament. The golfers were first in a field of sev- eral schools which included Topeka, Newton, Ot- tawa, and others. Newton was second with 1046 points to Manhattan's 1456: the Blues were first in the 2 and 4 man team events, and won second and fourth in the singles. Tennis A tournament was held at the first of the year among those boys interested in tennis and Max Decker, last year's number-one man, again emerged the winner. Bob Gahagan landed in the number-two position while Chan Murray and Don Sollenberger held down the number three and four posts, respec- At the Salina invitational, which,was their first meet of the year, the Blues, except Decker, were eliminated in the second round. Decker was elimi- nated in the quarter finals. The next week found the Manhattan High tennis men busily engaged. On Saturday they met the Be- loit team and lost 4-2. Gahagen and Decker were the only ones to win their singles matches, while Beloit swept the doubles to cinch the meet. On a return meet the following Monday at Beloit, the Manhattan boys encountered a few court haz- ards in the form of a high wind and dust storm and it was almost a complete rout 5-1. Norman Ross, who challenged Don Sollenberger, was the only one to win his match. On Wednesday of the same week, Manhattan met Junction City and lost the dual meet 5-2. Sollen- berger won the only singles match while Ross and Decker turned in the only doubles victory. At the Eastern Kansas Conference meet which was held at Emporia the boys had better luck. Max Decker got into the semi finals. Bill Adams, a new comer on the team and the only junior on the team, also ad-vanced to the semi finals. He lost also after a hard fight to Topeka's number-one man. In doub- les Gahagen and Sollenberger got in the semi finals and lost to Emporia, however they won the consola- tion honors by defeating Lawrence. In the regional meet which was held at Manhattan all of the players were eliminated in the first round.

Lake got fifth in the half mile, The Blues track squad jumped into a rather heavy season with ten meets on the schedule this year. Don Kastner was elected captain. Don started in his sophomore year by running the 220 yard dash in less than 22 seconds and being a consistant point winner throughout the season. In his junior year due to injury he was out practically all of the sea- 3011. The season opened with Manhattan dropping their first dual to Junction City 52 to 82. The teams were very evenly matched in the track events, but the Blues lost in the field. Kastner won the 220 yard dash but dropped a close race to Sullinger in the 100 yard dash. Johns and Keith won their respec- tive races, the 880 yard run and the 220 low hurdles. Grandfield and Kendall took the 4401 yard dash and the pole vault. Manhattan won one of the three re- lays, the medley. Following the Junction meet a small group went to the Sterling Relays. Johns set a new record in the medley relay Manhattan started out well and in the half mile 2:04.'. The old record was 2:0i7.2. In all probability would have shatered the present rec- ord of 3:37.5 if a small boy had not run into the anchor man and caused him to break stride and lose valuable seconds. The boys who ran in the relay were Kastner,'220 yards, Keith, 100 yards, Grand- field, 440 yards, and Lake the 880 yard run. In the Salina invitation Kastner got second in the 100 and 220 yard dashg Grandfield, third in the 4-410 yard dash gJohns, first in the half mileg Payne fourth in the high jump and the third in the med- ley relay. The showing was good under keen comp- ctition. We had two duals, Onaga and Clay Center. The Blues beat Onaga bad and lost a close one to Clay 76 to 64. In the Onaga meet we won all the track events but the high hurdles, the mile run, and the half mile relay. Winning in the field events the meet was rather one sided. With Clay Center the Blues won all the track events except the mile run and the half mile relay. The men from Clay cleared the field events to get the winning points. Nine members of the track team went to Law- rence to enter the K. U. relays. The boys returned earning one pointy Kastner pulled a fourth in the 100 yard dash for two pointsg and the medley re- lay fKastner, Keith, Fenton and Johnsj won for five points. The boys had a big day at the Emporia invitation getting second behind Emporia's first. Capt. Don Kastner had a busy day winning the 100, 220 and 440 yard dashes. Kendall got first in the pole vault and Johns a first in the half mile. The Blues placed all relay teams: the mile got first, the medley sec- ond, and the half mile fourth. Keith got second in the low hurdles. Three meets are scheduled for the end of the sea- son. The league meet at Emporia, the Regional here at Manhattan and those who have qualified for the State meet will travel to Topeka at the end of the school year. Boy's Intramurals Continued from page 46 and Ray Zabel. The basketball season was fairly successful with 65 boys participating.

The French Clubs Le Cercle Francis, was organized into two sep- arate groups this year, French Club I and II. They were not considered as activity clubs so it was nec- essary to have meetings during the class periods every month. The French Club is the oldest club in Manhattan High School. It was originated by Mrs. Robert Kuhn, and Miss Snapp has been the sponsor for the last two years. The programs of French Club I consisted of speakers, contests, and plays. Mr. Pyle, a French speaker f1'om Kansas State College, spoke about the French Christians and other customs of France. Later as a program the class had a baseball game, all of the questions being asked about French gram- mar. Also there was a French knowledge contest, the grand prize being a candy bar. Officers of French I were Betty Boone, mlle. le president, Irene Swanson, mlle. le secretaireg and Victoria Majors, mmle. le president des programmes. An outstanding meeting of French Club II was the Christmas party at which time the drama, "Three Little Pigs", was presented in French. A Valentine party was held in February. At this time valentines were exchanged among the members. At one program a quiz contest was given about French civilization. Officers of French Club II were Dorothy May Summers, mlle. le presidentg Joanne Aubel, mlle. le vice-presidentg Martha Baird, mlle. le secrettaireg and Barbara Bouck, mlle. le president des pro- grammes. Science Club Continued from page 33 entire club was divided into three science divisions, each working on different phases of physical science. The astronomy division, with David Gates as chairman, made a six-inch reflecting telescope which was entered in the Kansas Junior Academy of Sci- ence meeting at Lawrence. Later the group plotted stars with the telescope. Many varied programs and numerous guest speakers added to the interest of the group. The radio division of the club was headed by Gabe Sellers. Discussions on topics concerning radio made up the largest share of the programs. A photo-elec- tric cell was made and entered in the Kansas Jun- ior Academy of Science meeting at Lawrence. No1'man Crook was the chairman of the aeronaut- ics division of the Physics Club. Discussions were led by different members of the group on numerous phases of aviation. A sextant was completed and entered in the Junior Academy of Science meeting at Lawrence by the group. The various officers of the camera division of the club were Donald Sollenberger, president: Ward Haylett, vice-president and program chairman, and Paul Jorgenson, secretary-treasurer. Throughout the year the club meetings were de- voted mainly to the students and their activities along the photographic line. Once in a while speak- ers came in to give the fans pointers about what's what in the photographic world-but for the main part, the fans themselves planned and carried out the programs. The club's second semester activities featured a snapshot contest. We won't go into the particulars here fexcept to say that the prize winning picture appea1's in this annual! because the important thing is that no other club has sponsored a contest-and it just goes to show, that though the Camera Club was only started at the beginning of this school year, it has accomplished a lot and given its members a 50 Class History Continued from page 20 Those music lovin' seniors really brought down the high ratings at the annual Music Festival at Topeka. Betty Anne Faubion and David Gates were rated highly superior for their piano and clarinet solos, respectively. A superior rating was given Edith Hanna for her violin solo, and Margaret Col- lins was given an excellent plus rating for her vocal solo. About this same time, Faye Clapp, our artistic senior, won second prize in the individual awards offered to contestants in the Art exhibit at Linds- borg. A high honor to be bestowed on such an un- suspecting female! With their audience "rolling in the aisles", the Senior play cast deserved the highest of praises. "The Torchbearers" had a most noteworthy cast, headed by Martha Baird,-oh these actresses! Bar- bara Bouck and Bill Docking, Junior play leads, sup- plied more than their share of laughs. Practically stealing the show was Bill Packer, another "new" student, as an eccentric and dapper gentleman tif you can believe itj. Other members of the cast were: Mary Margaret Arnold, Betty Ann Faubion, Dor- othy May Summers, Mary Louise Emery, Merrill Peterson, Bruce Bryan, Norman Ross, and Russell Minnis. Due largely to the work of the senior members, Manhattan was host to the first annual convention of the Kansas Fede1'ation of Student Councils. Al- most seventy-five students from twenty schools were entertained by us, and had a most enjoyable time iso they saidj-at least it was our sincere wish that they did! Mary Louise was the president of the con- vention, a most worthy position! She had her share of the trouble, too-just ask her! The Senior Sneak, as sneaks always are, wasn't a surprise to anyone, nevertheless the seniors did enjoy it. As usual, lots of tricks were played on the gals, but lots of fun was had by both male and fe- males. Even though the class was a "remarkable" one fwe must put this in quotes because it has been used so oftenj lots of the sophisticated seniors cried at Baccalaureate, and Commencement promises to hold its sorrows! F.F. A. Club Continued from page 32 ' reception at which time formal installation of the oflicers was held. .Club members, who are also engaged in various farming activities, have an average of 3.5 projects per member. The net worth on January 1st of these members was 54,3823 each one is encouraged by the increase of his net worth to build his farm- ing program until high school is completed. Members of this organization are Amos Wilson, president, Burk Bayer, vice-presidentg Dale Knight. treasurer, Adelbert Wilson, reporter, Grant Poole, secretaryg Lawrence Jenkins, watch dogg Orville Gil- man, Wayne Lewis, Raymond Nelson, Jr. Palmer, Raph Newell, Norman Woolgar, Alvin Abbott, Mel- vin Barry, Ioys Guest, Oliver McMahon, Roy Mc- Manis, Ray McManis, Ulysses Mathews, Kenneth Parker, Jack Richter, Darold Ukena, William York, Carl Lemarr, Walter Warren, George Wreath, and Mr. Lee Walters, an honorary member. Mr. Harold Kugler is the advisor. great deal of pleasure. We cannot write of the Camera Club without men- tioning that it is a member of the Junior Academy of Science-a fact that Mr. Parrish and his group are extremely proud of, and rightly so.
