Future Farmers, Greenhands, Sponsor Club Exhibits
Compete in Rodent Contest, Have Corn Test Plots
The pictures on the mount below illustrate some ot the activities ot
agriculture students. 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.

owing to a bad start, the team was much
better than their record indicated.
Basketball squad members, Glen Bloom

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
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.
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. Pleasant 37-O aT The Muskies' tield
and a week later ran over The FT. Madison Bloodhounds 3 I-O aT The Prison
City Tield. ,
Beating Ottumwa lthe score 6-Ol was The one goal above all others
that The Muskies wanted and obtained This year. Showing a desire and The
heart to win, The Webermen tinished Third in The conterence standings.

team won three ot their six games ot the toughest competition available.
Two games trom Columbus Junction and one trom the Mt. Pleasant B
squad constituted the wins tor the season. The Musky B's were turned

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.
Inexperience was The basic reason Tor The poor showing oT The Musky
yearlings aT The beginning oT The season. During The TirsT monTh oT par-
TicipaTion They were held To a lone win ouT oT six sTarTs. Learning TasT
wiTh experience and The guardianship oT Coach LeTTy Schnack, The Musky
B's Tinished as runner-up To WesT LiberTy in The counTy TournamenT. Los-
ing To The LiberTy guinTeT I8- I 2 aTTer winning over some real compeTiTion

ing perTormer, was The mainspring in Coach Schnack's Team oT Tresh-
men and sophomores. Don Carver, The scrappy Torward, was valuable
as a scorer. ArT Lucas and Earl Pulliam were oTher mainsTays oT The B

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.
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.
