TURCH LIGHT FUR YOUTH These things shall be,-a loftier race Than e'er the world 'hath known shall rise With flame of freedom in the souls, And light of knowledge in their eyes. John A. Symonds The theme for- this year's WILDCAT is light-of learning, activities and fun. All kinds of lights are involved in making a school year one to remember. It is hoped that this book will keep the 1951-1952 school year spotlighted in your memory. THE WILDCAT PUBLISHED BY THE JOURNALISM CLASS.

BURDEH LIGHTS UF A SEHUUL No longer just a dream was the much- wanted and needed gymnasium which -was dedicated Sepetmber 25, 1951. It served many purposes throughout the yeariz for the first time in M.H.S. history a hot lunch program could successfully be carried out-every noon aromas of meat loaf, chocolate cake, or apple- sauce issued delicately forthg a versatile stage lent itself to superior dramatic productions and community talent showsg the basketball floor was the scene of many hotly-contested battles, including those of the regional tourna- mentg and during the noon hour the recrea- tion room -beneath the stage furnished oppor- tunity for becoming proficient with a ping pong paddle, dominoes and checkers. The main building will long be remem- hered as the crux of the entire school pro- CLASSES IN TYPING,,SI-IORTHAND, AND SCIENCE are contained in the building shown here. One may find typewriters, microscopes, chemicals, biological specimen, Bunsen burneres and other scientific paraphernalia here. A SUNLIGI-IT THROWS A SYMMETRICAL PATTERN on the floor of the new gymnasium This building houses n well equipped dramatics stage, recreation room, lunch room, and excellent dressing rooms The auditorium will seat 1 400 basketball fans SETTING gram-Mr. Greer's office with its duplicating machines, first aid kit, and always-busy tele- phones and typewritersg teachers' voices ringing from a variety of classrooms, grade school 'noises coming up the air vents from the first floor, cold dressing rooms and creaky, crowded stairways. ' Commercepand science, both housed in a building by themselves, whad their char: acteristics which linger in memory-the ring- ing bells of typewriters, the odors of fore maldehyde andlhydrogen sulphide, and Miss Johnson's voice giving shorthand dictation, To complete the buildings grouped to- gether for the sole purpose of teaching stu- dents to become well-rounded citizens, was the combination music-vocational agriculture- woodworking department. A strange mingling of musical crescendos, 'high-powered blee- trical machinery, and hammering yet-to-bv finished -products into being came roaring into the street so that passing motorists mar- veled at the efficiency of it all. THIS-PICTURE SHOWS THE BEAUTIFUL white snow which fell on a cold winter day in March outside the main school building. Administration offices, a grade school, English, history. math 'and art classes, study hall, and R small gymnasium are incorporated in this structure.

Greer, busy with the varied details connected with his position, has successfully completed seven years as superintendent and was again appointed for another term. He is never too busy to spend necessary time with students or faculty members, greeting them from behind his desk vvith a pleasant "'Good morning" and giving them encouragement, guidance, and vital inspiration for the task ahead. In the years thati Mr. Greer has' been superintendent, he has brought about many extra-curricular activities. One very suc- cessful event which took place this year INSPECTING PAINT AND LIGHTING needs oi class rooms is one of the regular duties of the Board. Here they look over the needs in Mr. Mar1in's room. AND FACULTY LEARNING was a senior college day .which was held here March 11. This was organized for the purpose of having students meet different school representatives and to determine which college they wished to attend. Another of Mr. Greer's accomplishments this year was the organizing and admin- istrating of the hot lunch program which approximately 150 students take advantage of 'each day. Working along with Mr. Greer were members of the Board of Education who laid the foundation for the school year and directed the policy of the administra- tion. Many late evenings were spent by L. L. Lehmberg, directorg Marvin E. Goer- ing, clerkg and John P. Krehbiel, treasurer. MISS WILMA CHRISTIANSON, teacher of home eco- nomics, directs the boys' quartet as they burst forth WITH THE AID OF BIOLOGY CHARTS Mr. Harold Collins began Bob Krehbiel with his Porifera-lesson.

Standing before a class of 1951-52 Wild- cats, waiting patiently for the students to soak in the knowledge of education they are tryinglto teach them, is the faculty of M.H.S. Many times the teachers are 'seen slaving away grading papers or preparing the next day's assignments. "SCREECH" is the sound coming from the violin section as it is directed by Mr. J.

Besides trying to educate students, fac- ulty members are seen sponsoring school parties, taking cars to music contests, and selling tickets to basketball and football games.

FRESHMEN The freshmen of '51-52 have been a very challenging class to Moundridge High School They have accomplished having one class party this year, which was held on March 11 in the old auditorium, despite numerous obstacles. They played games after which refreshments of pop and candy bars were served. The freshmen have been not- iced both by teachers and stu- dents to be an intriguing class. Clumsy boys, with arms akimbo, tussling around, and hanging on one another's shouldersg loud 'boisterous girls who are forever chasing someone. These are sure signs of M.H.S. freshmen. Let's hope they mature socially in the process of growing up. MUSICAL' CHAIRS IS FUN for both the freshmen and Mr. Ramsdale, their substitute sponsor, at their class party on, March 11.

After an initial loss to Marion by one point, the Moundridge Wildcats rebounded and finished the season with five wins, three losses, and one tie. The team placed second in the Mid-Kansas League for the season. Most of the games were dominated by poor weather conditions through- out the year, with the Nickerson game receiving a bountiful two inches while the action was on. The Panth- ers won that one 13 to 0 and went on to win the league with an un- defeated season. Bad weather was prevalent at the Buhler, Inman, and Burrton games even though the Wild- cats managed to win two of the three. League losses were to Nickerson and Burrton. The ame with Burrton was played on a snow-covered field and was decided in the last few min- utes of play when the Eagles scored a touchdown and kicked the extra point to defeat the Wildcats 7 to 6. ft Pi-ctured at left from top to bottom are Mr. Collins, head coachg Eddie Stucky, team man- ij ageryand Mr. Martin, assistant coach. Jammu REGIER ALLEN DALKE GLENN WALTNER Riallt End Fullback Left End The Moundridge-Halstead game was a fitting climax to the league season with the two teams battling to a 21 to 21 tie. It was Halstead's air attack against the Wildcat ground game. In' they final game of the season Moundridge routed Lindsborg 39 to 13 in a game highlighted by a block- ed kick hy Maynard Krehbtiel in the opening seconds which was convert- ed into a touchdown. Seven seniors played their, last game for Moundridge this year: Jake Krehbiel, John Goering, Max Smith, Waldean Wedel, Edgar Becker, Allen Dalke, and David Suenram. Other lettermen were Gene Goering, Jerome Regier, Nelson Galle, Glenn Waltner, George Goering, 'Gilbert Kaufman, Maynard Krehbiel, Delmer Kaufman, Louis Wedel,' James Stucky, Mervin Krehbiel, Bob Krehbiel, Galen Smith and Leslie Dyck.

This was the first year for Coach Harold Collins, who continued the rebuilding job begun last year by Tommy Allen. The team responded readily to his teaching and turnedin a fine record which gave indications of even greater things to come. The team used a variation of the well known "T" formation mixed with the buck lateral series to give a well-rounded of- fense with lots of punch. The Wildcats did lack a good air arm however, and had to make up for that with a machine-like ground attack. A large freshman group answered the call for football and gave a good account of themselves in the "B" games during the season. Mervin Krehbiel, Bob Krehbiel, Sherwin Niehage, Larry Wedel and Kenny Stucky will give Moundridge teams of the future considerable depth and speed.

In the opening game the Wildcats smothered Buhler 63 to 51 and went on to win the Marion Christmas Tournament with victories over Madison 44-38 and Marion 60-44. Most notable of the Wildcat victories were the Inman, Pretty Prairie and Chase games in the regional semi-finals. Moundridge defeated In- man 44 to 42 on the home floor early in Janu- ary after stalling the ball for the final two min- utes. The Wildcats tallied a double winiver Pretty Prairie by defeating them' 52 to 48 at home and 40 to 39 away on Jerry Eck's last- second bucket. Halstead stood off a final quarter surge by the Wildcats to win the last game of the season 53 to 50. The Dragon height 'was too much for the shorter Wildcats.

After two lean years of rebuilding, the Moundridge Wildcats finally came up with a track team that attracted wide attention. Seasoned performers such as David Suenram, Jerome Regier, Leslie Dyck, Edwin Stucky, Delmer Kaufman and Gene Goering formed a nucleous around which Coach Collins built the team that took the Ottawa Relays. The basis of the whole athletic set- up is a good track team, and the Wildcats have begun to build their athletic future with that in mind. The Wildcats w'on dual meets with Inman, Halstead, and a night meet with Canton and Little River. The Moundridge Invi- tational attracted the largest .and best field ever.

Although there! was almost always a last-minute rush in getting copy in, the ten members of the journalism class managed to get The Wildcafs Howl, the M.H.S. newspaper, out every two weeks except when holidays interrupted. Besides working on tlie Howl and the Wildcat, which you are 'now reading, the eight girls in the class attended a journalism conference in Eldorado in the fall. The girls also worked hard at getting concessions ready for every home basketball gamelto raise money for both the paper and the yearbook. l l t Sherry Westerman was elected by the class to edit the Howl. Business managers lwere Evelyn Flickinger and Joyce Stucky. Velma Vogt was in charge ot circulation. Despite delays caused by after-Christmas three-day meas- les and flu, Patsy Huffman, editor of the Wildcat, and Leola Wedel, business manager, condensed their efforts in a last- minute surge to produce this yearbook, with the help of Mary Ann Neufeld, who did the bulk of the typing, Carol lBilll Kaufman, Gene Goering, David Suenram, and other staff members already mentioned. - V Mrs. Martin was the advisor, Anita Krehbiel cartooned the divider pages and cover, Vernard Vogt was in charge of printing, and Vic Heidebrecht took the majority of the pictures.

The vocal department flourished under the direction of- J. T. Isely and Wilma Christianson. Miss Christianson took charge of the soloists, junior high chorus, and ensembles, while Mr Isely directed the larger groups. The mixed chorus consisted of approxi- mately one hundred voices. They present- ed the Christmas program on December 20 which featured "The Babe of Bethle- hem," a cantata of students chosen from the mixed chorus. The chorus took part in contests at Haven and Wichita. At both contests the chorus earned superior ratings. "MASTERS IN THXS HALL Hear Ye News Today" are the familiar words uttered by the mixed chorus of Moundridge High School as they presented their annual Christmas program on December 20. THE SEXTET OF M.H.S. sings for various events in and out of school. ' ' G0 NOT FAR FROM ME" comes melodiously from the mixed chorus. Buick row: L. Kuhn, James Stucky, L. Becker, W. Becker, J.
