Each year the vocational agriculture classes hold an exhibit ot the truits and vegetables they have raised on their home tarms. They sponsored the attair this season at the time the new building was opened to the public, thus enabling the parents and triends ot the boys to see some ot their work. One ot the visitors was Fred G. Messen- ger, to whom Lindley B. l-loopes displayed a platetul ot tempting apples. The boys divided into teams to compete in a rodent and pest ex- terminating contest. They earned points tor each rat, mouse, gopher. groundhog, Starling, and crow they killed. The losers in the contest had to turnish the retreshments at an ice-skating party. Another annual attair was the corn test plot experiment. Each ot the boys cultivated several varieties ot corn on a ten-acre plot at his home tarm. Thomas Watson won the corn grower's trophy, and Gale Nelson was the winner ot the corn exhibition trophy tor l939.

Thomas Receive Superior Rating in Pre-State Music Contest A superior rating in the pre-state music contest in Muscatine was the achievement ot the Muscatine High School chorus, under the direction ot Clittord V. Thomas. The high ranking entitled the chorus members to competition in the state contest at Fairtield, but they did not enter. The plan tor state music competition was somewhat ditterent this year. Con- testants earning superior ratings in the pre-state elimination contests competed in one ot tour state contests, one in each section ot the state. On May 2 the chorus went to Iowa City, where they participated in the music testival conducted by the University ot Iowa. M. H. S. soloists and small vocal groups also took part. Nationally lcnown critics judged the music ot the outstanding Iowa high school groups who appeared at the testival. The chorus made several public appearances at schools and churches. With the assistance ot tormer chorus members and other interested adults, the chorus presented Handel's "Messiah" in the high school audi- torium on December I7. They contributed to the beauty and ettective- ness ot the high school Christmas assembly and Good Friday services. l PRE-STATE MUSIC CONTEST WINNERS Sludenls who loolc parl in music worlc during lhe I939-40 season may remember il as one ol lhe mosl successlul music years M. l-l.

COACHING STAFF Bob Kinnan Letty Schnack Skip Weber Bob Kinnan, Lefty Schnack, Skip Weber Produce Cheers On Musky Football Field, Basketball Court, Track The successes and tailures ot Muscatine l-ligh School athletic teams lay in the hands ot Bob Kinnan, Letty Schnack, and Skipper Weber. Long hours ot coaching and watchtul waiting predominated in the work ot these men. Bob Kinnan has completed his ninth year as head basketball coach tor the Muskies. l-tis state-wide reputation tor tine teams speaks well ot his superior coaching. I-lis superstitions, his nervous antics during close games, and his being just one ot the team make Bob a typical coach. I-lead ot the gridiron and cinder paths was one Skip Weber, tormer iylusky pertormer and Iowa U. letterman. Skipper has tour years ot coaching tor the Purple and Gold to his credit and an impressive record. With good material returning next year, Skip will be gunning tor his tirst Little Six tootball championship. g gfxs an assistant to Bob and Skip, Letty Schnackgolayed no minor part in the successes ot the M. l-l. S. athletic program. We may sately call Letty the right arm because the question ot tuture material lies wholly with him. The main iob ot Schnack was to teach the rules and tundamen- tals to the up-and-coming stars who composed the so-called B squad. Coach Schnack assisted with baseball and had complete control ot the tootball and basketball B squads. -77M FOOTBALL-A SQUAD An all-stater, several all-conterence men, and a great Tield ot pros- pects Teatured the Turnout at The beginning ot the Tootball season last Tall. An impressive victory over Lone Tree opened a season which looked Tavorable to the Webermen. The game at Keokuk the tollowing week proved that too much contidence isn'T a good policy. Battling a high- pitched bunch ot Chiets, the Muskies emerged onthe short end ot a I4-7 skirmish. Seven days later The Muskies and the Trojans Trom Fairtield bat- tled to a scoreless Tie at Jetterson Field. Not Tully recovered trom the tray ot The previous week, The Purple and Gold took The only hard blow ot The season Trom Burlington. The Grayhounds ran and passed all around The Muskies to win 20-6 on The Burlington gridiron. Finally hitting The stride that was to be expected, the Webermen Turned on Tull speed and Trounced Mt.

Kinnan's Muslcy Cagers Progress to State Semitinalsg Win Undisputed Little Six Conference Championship "One ot my best teams as tar as all-around pertormances and coop- eration are concerned," said Coach Bob Kinnan ot this year's team. Win- ning the tirst six games was encouraging to the team ot veterans. Atter losing a game to Mason City the Kinnanmen added another string ot eight straight victories to their record. A let-down which almost proved tatal occurred about this time and the Muskies bowed to Ottumwa and Fair- tield in succession. Still in the running, the Muskies downed Ft. Madison and clinched the Little Six championship by beating Mt. Pleasant 37-27. Advancing through the sectional to the district tor the tirst time in several years, the Muslcies began to get their courage baclc once more, and tollowers ot the team began to rate it as one to beat in state com- petition. From the district, held here at Muscatine, the Muslcies ad- vanced tothe state meet at lowa City. Winning over Sergeant Blutt and Waverly, they again met Mason City in the semitinals, which they lost 34-30. This game was really the climax ot the tournament as shown by the enthusiasm ot some 8,500 spectators. All in all, Muscatine tans will remember the Muslsies ot '39 and '40 tor their courage and will to win. -32- BASKETBALL-B SQUAD Inexperience was The basic reason Tor The poor showing oT The Musky yearlings aT The beginning oT The season.

Pepsters Organize To Promote Better Cheering For Encouragement ot Athletic Trophy Winners Fitty-seven Muslqies organized the Pep Club with the idea ot stimulat- ing more enthusiasm in the student body and developing new and better yells. The group occupied one tull section ot bleachers at the basketball games, adding much color and pep tothe scene. They participated in or- ganized yells under the direction ot the tour cheerleaders, Belle Lamb, Wilma Mardoclc, Darrel Miller, and Norman Weis. Underclassmen who aided in leading the cheering were Carl Paetz, Margaret Swiclqard, Belly Mohnsen, Marion Edmonds, Harriet Olatstein, and Herman Oriesen- broclc. Throughout the year the club held scheduled meetings in the gym under the supervision ot Miss Louisa Jericho, who served as taculty adviser. This year the high school cheer leaders helped organize a pep club at iunior high school. Possibly these seventh and eighth grade students will be the ones to lead the cheers lor Muslcy athletes in tuture years. Some ot the cheer leaders traveled to the sectional basketball tourna- ment at Durant and the state bout at Iowa City to help Muslcy tans in en- couraging the boys. -90- GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION "You must go forward and not stand still. for if you stand still you will slide backward" was the motto which Miss Bernice Petersen, sponsor of the Girls' Athletic Association, kept before the group this year. Miss Petersen directed the girls in a program of health-building games, exer- cises, and good times. Outstanding pleasures of the year came in participation in three out- of-town events. A group of the girls went to Washington, Iowa, where they took part in the annual Cowgirl Round-up. Members of the organi- zation were guests of Burlington girls at their annual G. A. A. play day. Girls interested in swimming and diving accepted the invitation of the Seals Club of the University of Iowa for a day of exhibitions and contests at the university field house at Iowa City. G. A. A. members ioined in a local program of swimming, hiking, pic- nicking, and sports. They cooperated as captains and leaders of basket- ball, volleyball, tumbling, and deck tennis groups at the Y. W. C. A. Among these girls were a number who were active in urging the introduc- tion of a girls' physical education department in the high school. Officers of the Girls' Athletic Association were Betty Timm, presi- dent: Margaret I-Ieitz, secretary, and Mavis Koepping, treasurer.
