Coachcd by Mose Stucky the boys turned out a good team both in playing the game and in good sportsmanship showed both in games and in practice. The team played two non-league games, the first with Marion and the other with Lindsborg. In league standing the boys ended the season with a tie for second place.

Playing under new coaching the cage crew of M.ll.S. got off to a slow start as they lost their first six games of the season, but with a win the boys got their range and wound up the season with six wins and eight losses for a tie for fifth place. The team also played two non-league games with Planeview and Hillsboro, winning one and losing one. Even though Mr. Galle didn't turn out a first place team he won the admiration of the team as well as the students, which is just as much.

BOBBY MILLER MARY LOU KOEHN MAX SMITH President Secretary Treasurer The Junior High Group of Moundridge High School started in the fall of 1947 with twenty- eight active and ambitious students. The boys had a successful season in athletics. Competitive basketball games were held with other Junior High teams. Spirit was inspired by three able cheerleaders elected by the mem- bers of the Junior High Pep Club, commonly known around school as the "Kit-Kats". Most of the girls were members of the Blue Triangle Club as well as Kit-Kats. Under the leadership of the music teacher, Mr. J. T. Isely, a minstrel show was presented in an ssemhly and was repeated for P.T.A. A good time was enjoyed by all at a hamburger fry in the park followed by a scavenger hunt.

As a scented flower lingers on, so shall the memory of these seniors linger in the heart and life of Moulndridge High. Through four years of high school, they have overcome diffi- culties great and small with a steadfast heart and hand. Surely such a successful school life should leave a contented atmosphere. In the freshman year, Miss Betty Bird was our sponsor. We elected as president, Wayne Krehbielg vice-president, Mae Dee Begierg sec- retary-treasurer, Dolores Johnson. During this year three of our girls served as cheerleaders. Two parties were held this year. On our first one, we went to McPherson, enjoyed a picnic and then went to a movie. The other party was given in the gymnasium. As sophomores, in the year 1945, Mr. Isely was our sponsor. Class meeting was held and we chose as president, Dean Huffman, vice- preident, Alvin Moddelmogg secretary, .loan Krehbielg treasurer, Mae Dee Regier. Our class participated in many school activ- ities. All but a few sang in the glee clubs and chorus, and most of the boys went out for foot- ball and basketball. All the girls were G. R. members. We again had a party each semester of that school term. Miss Dorothy Claassen and Mr. Charles Grif- fin were our sponsors in our junior year. Joan Krehbiel was elected president, Betty Huxman, vice-president, Mae Dee Begier, secretary, Dean Huffman, treasurer. Early in the year a picnic was enjoyed in the Newton park. Skating and a movie also helped make the evening a pleasant one. An- other party, later in the year was held in the gymnasium. VVe ordered our rings from the Herff-Jones Co. Although one pattern was chosen by the class, the kind of setting was left to the individ- ual. They were received in February. Our play, "Lady Spitfire", was given Decem- ber 12, under the direction of Miss Esther Marie Hays. The cast consisted of five girls and five boys. Acting ability, plus time and patience on the part of the director, made this event a suc- cessful one. VVith the cooperation of every member in the class, not excluding the sponsors. we gave the annual Junior-Senior Banquet May 3, 1947, choosing as the theme, "The Magic of the Nightv. This banquet was in honor of the graduating seniors. The auditorium was decorted with varying shades of pink and blue, giving a beau- tiful blending effect. The main attraction was a fountain placed in the center of a garden of flowers. The water spray from the fountain trickled down upon the rocks below like the :sound of a spring among water falls. The guests made their entrance through a garden arch. Lanterns of various colors peeped through the trimmings overhead and gave a fairytale vision, playing with the shadows from the candlelight on the tables below. The tables were decorated with baskets of flowers. Programs were made in the form of lanterns. The Boys' Quartette from Bethany College was the attraction of the evenings entertainment. There was something sad, yet exciting, upon entering school for our last year. We were a class of thirty-two members. Miss Dorothy Claassen and Mr. Mose Stucky were sponsors. We went to the Harvey County Park for a Weiner roast. It was there where plans were first made concerning our sneak to Deliver on April 22, 1948. The play "June Mad" was presented April 20, under the direction of Miss Hays. It was a great success and everybody went away well pleased. SENIOR SNEAK It was April, and the seniors were going a- round with secret smiles and buttoned lips. Several important class meetings were held in the Science building, without too much pri- vacy, and soon all arrangements were made for our sneak to Denver, Colorado. Early in the evening of April 22nd, thirty- six excited seniors and sponsors boarded a chartered Santa Fe bus, with a host of towns- people giving us the send off. We arrived at the Roosevelt hotel in Denver about 6:30 a.m., after a night which included singing, eating, and of course, very little sleep- ing. Then our rooms were assigned to us, we took several minutes to "freshen up", and went to a nearby cafe for breakfast. Our first visit was made to the United States Mint. Vile were shown around in groups of ten by guards. One of the interesting things we saw was a brick of gold, worth approximately PS22,000. Then we saw the complete process of making coins. The capitol was our next stop. It was a real thrill to climb to the top and view the sights of the city. Following this we took the trolly to Fitzsimmons General Hospital for veterans. The hospital, located in Aurora, is the largest of its kind in the United States. We ate our noon meal in the hospital cafeteria after which we were taken through the Physical Therapy Ward and the Occupational Therapy Ward. The class separated after this interesting visit. Some went to a Historical Museum, others went shop- ping in the downtown district, and others went to their hotel rooms to catch up on sleep. The evening was spent in various places of entertainment, and by 10:30 every senior was reported inside the hotel. After a peaceful night of sleep everyone awoke feeling rested and happy, and rarin' to go again. Looking out of hotel windows, we saw something that almost made our tempers rise, but remembering that we were the so-called dignified seniors, we took a deep breath and tried to greet the beau- tiful snowflakes. We then set to work packing our grips and started getting ready for a day of fun in the mountains. We chartered a bus in Denver which took us to Berthoud Pass. VVe had a wonderful time in spite of the snow and high altitude. We stopped at Idaho Springs for cokes and malts and then went on to the top of the Continental Divide, with breath- taking scenery all the way. At this place we ate'lunch, turned and came back to Denver. When we got back we met an old friend of ours who insisted upon taking us to a Chinese restaurant for dinner. It was quite a thrill to some of the class who had never eaten Chinese food before. The food was delicious. Tired but happy, we climbed into our bus and waved good-bye to a town that showed us a swell time and left us many never-to-be-for- gotten memories. X ,, i g ,An- 2' -+11 41512601 .f 'zopgaa 'k 'A' Today, being May 11, 1973 A. D., the Senior Class of 1948 is holding its 25th Anniversary of graduating from M.H.S. Twenty-five years ago we vowed to meet in the high school building, which is now crumbling with age, but the aud- torium still stands. I, Kenneth Koenig, president of the Senior Class of 1948, have the pleasure in being asked to take charge of this reunion which is sponsor- ed by Roland Schrag's Quick-Crow chicken mash, a new scientific mash that will make the chickens lay eggs already fried. The room is decorated as it was at the Junior- Senior Banquet, May, 1947. There are twenty- five present and seven missing. Among those missing are Mr. and Mrs. Earl Neufeld, former Mae Dee ltegier, who cannot be present as she is busy knitting. This will be their third blessed event. Earl is head of the Neufeld Diaper Co. located in zooming Zimmerdalefnow a suburb of Moundridge. Others missing are Mr. and Mrs. Dale Goering, his wife being the former Violet Krehbiel, who are on a mission in South Africa. Gerald Kaufman is in the local Mercy hospital nursing a broken neck caused by the crashing of his flying Kaiser. Also missing are Cot Kreh- biel and his wife Betty Huxman who are travel- ing in Southern France for the year. Betty has been working hard on her new novel, HHow to Capture a Cannibal". Our last person absent is NVillis Loganbill, who having taken up the car- eer of a boxer, has been having a "cooling off" period at the North Pole, for misbehavior in the ring. Upon entering my office this morning, Elsie Stucky, who has done a splendid job in keep- ing my books up to par, told me she has finally accepted a diamond from Stan Sehrag who is President of K. U. Stan has been wooing Elsie for 23 years. The event will take place this com- ing summer. James Dyck, Chemical Engineer for Bubble Cum Company, still as charming as he always was, has been courting Joan Krehbiel, winner of the 1970 Academy Award for that "sly act- ing" in the role of "Queen .Jezebel of the Aztecsn. The marriage will take place as soon James can rid himself of the former Evelyn Vogt. He claims she picks his pockets and makes him cook all the meals. Al Stucky has found time to come to Olll' re- union from VVashington, D. C., where he is a "Dark Horse" candidate for next year's presi- dency. lt is a great pleasure to have Don Goering with us, who has traveled all the way from Buenos Aires to attend this reunion. Because of his brilliant mind, he has been teaching monkeys how to read and writeg which has brought him fame and fortune. Glancing over the audience we spy Virginia Toevs, who flew up from Tokyo where she is operating a Beauty Salon, piercing the Japanese women's ears. Sitting next to Virginia we find none other than Gary Krehbiel, who is now on strike. Shortly after his graduation, Gary join- ed a union and has worked his way to head- quarters where he has taken over most of the work of the now old and feeble John L. Lewis. Continuing our search over the audience we find Mr. and Mrs. Delbert Wedel. Mrs. Wedel is the former Dolores .Iohnson. We are certainly happy to see them here. They are operating a fur trading center in Alaska. They are both clothed in rich luxurious furs, indicating that they are either prosperous or mighty cold in this climate. Surprise! As soon as this feature of our pro- gram is eoncluided, we have the wonderful an- nouncement to make that none other but that well-known baritone from the Metropolitan Op- era Co. has consented to render an Aira--the celebrated Mr. Curtis Dean Huffman. And who would you guess is sitting at the front table gaz- ing up at him in adoration, but his wife Marjorie Bender Huffman. Marjorie is a noted career wo- nviait she peddles brooms in the streets of New 'or . We are very happy to have with us Alvin Mod- delmog sitting in the audience. He is very suc- cessful in his "Moddelmog Fix 'Em Shopn. He has just patented his latest discovery, which is a streamlined jet-propelled baby-walker, with Master Deluxe Model siding and knee action fea- tures. In a far corner I see VVayne Krehbiel, who has stopped chasing women and opened a stable for Pedigreed Morans tracing horses, that isl. Across the table we see Corky Regier, who is making eyes at him. After seeing this we un- derstand why Ethel so suddenly changed her profession from a Plastic Surgeon to a Veterin- arian. And who is that flashing black-haired blonde? None other than Margie Penner, who as dyed her hair. Margie is manager of the All-American team from Elyria. She will not be able to stay for the entire program. She has to hurry back to Madison Round Garden on the Island of Alcatraz, where her team will play for the Olym- pic title of 1973. Mr. and Mrs. VVayne Stucky have been mar- ried only 10 years and are still on their honey- moon. They are spending this month sight-see- ing in McPherson Coufnty. VVayne's wife, the former Lois Schlender, claims that each year their honeymoon becomes more dear to them. Delene Waltner and Ethel Vogt. old maids, are co-partners in the love-lorn column entitled, "The Final PlungefAnd How To Prepare For It" As for myself, I have the sweetest little wife! .lane Stucky. She still warbles in her high voice each morning, just like a bird in the gilded cage. Did I say cage? VVhy, that's impossible, I'm pro- viding her with all she wants-after all, I am the World's Champion in Tiddle-Dee-Winks! This takes care of all our former classmates. The banquet has been a big success and we are happy so many of the class of 1948 could attend. Our next get-together will be our 50th reunion, op May 11, 1998. So until then, good-luck to all 0 you. V 4 512601 Ufan VVe, the Seniors of 1948, being of firm body and sound mind founded on truth, are hereby willing to pass on our individual possessions and talents, trusting that you will keep the spirit ot' M. H. S. alive and flourishing! This being our last will and testament to you, we hope you will not take the following state- ments as slams, but as valuable assets to those upon whom they are bestowed, and may they be a continual reminder of the generosity of the Senior Class. To the future classes of M. H. S. we will our ways of being different. XVith this we hope you can improve BI. H. S. as much as we did. NVe, as a class, will our ability to co-operate on choosing caps and gowns to the ,496l'S. To Mr. Greer, our superior, we will all our financial difficulties for our sneak, so he might realize the necessity of hard earned money and help Senior Classes in the future. To the dear faculty we leave many pleasant memories of smiling faces and good deeds twe hopel. And now we bequeath our individual talents and possessions to the needy under elassmen.

A. basketball ability to Eugene Hachman. Kenneth Koenig wills his camouflage revers- ible pants to Dewey Huffman, with tears at part- ing. Now Dewey's sly remarks will be unseen by teachers. To Bob Gray, .loan Krehbiel wills her jazzy snare drum playing. Go to it, Bob! Elsie Stueky bequeaths her quiet disposition to Marjean VValtner. VVe hope the teachers and all others concerned will appreciate the change. To Geneva Goering, Delene Waltner wills her blond hair. May the contrast become her. YVillis Loganbill is proud of his hair, but will part with enough to cover Mr. Boese's shiny dome. Dolores Johnson has bequeathed her rides to school to Lois Eck. VVe hope she will enjoy them as much as Dee did. Albiert' Stueky wills his false tooth to anyone getting one knocked out in basketball next year. ln order to eut off the main subject and cover up what is most interesting, namely the pres- ent height ot' fashion, Ethel ltegier wills her long skirts to Arlene Zerger. Margie Penner enjoys playing the piano, but Helen Schrag is being willed her ability to tickle those ivorles too. Dale Goering has consented to will his crew- euts to Vernon Lohrentz. May the change not shock the student body too greatly. To George Graber, Eugene Krehbiel wills his trips to the office. NYe hope he will enjoy the comfort of the office chairs as well as Cot has. Mae Dee ltegier gives her position as soda jerk first-class to Hattie Toews . 'l'o Bob Miller, Donald Goering wills his ability to get "A's". VVe,re sure Bob will take advantage of this and will therefore be out of high school in four years. Evelyn Vogt wills her typing speed to Keith Koller. He might find use for it in Typing next year. To Frieda Fulk, Marjorie Bender wills her shortness. lt will now take less material for the "new look". Stanley Schrag wills his "Charles Atlas" build to Eugene Stueky.

Neuf aways comes through. .lames Dyck bequeaths to Ernie Dirks his "cute" curl. Betty Huxman wills her giggles to Verna Stueky. We hope they will keep her out of trouble more than they did Huxy! To any pretty girls who forgot to leap this year, Delbert VVedel wills his twins brothers. Gerald Krehbiel wills his ability to catch eoons to Betty Stucky, in hope's that she will soon have a new coon fur coat. To Neva Kaufman, Ethel Vogt wills the fun of spending her evenings with the same fella'. As we come to the close of these bestowals, we heartily wish you, the under classmen, many memories of our pleasant associations together in times past. In witness whereof, we, the class of '48, the testators, have to this will set our hands and seal this eleventh day of May, one thousand nine hundred and forty-eight. , vim Y' "1 F. .el We, the Journalism Class of 1948, wish to acknowledge and to express 'ippreclatlon to the fol lowing firms who have helped with their contributions to make thls yearbook posslhle Bill's Cafe Davis Cafe Eck Hatchery Orth Drug Store Moundridge Studio J.
