Ted Hahn made a neces- sary adjustment in preparation for a happy evening.

At the organ were Ella Mae Huff Clettb, Sherbie Phillips, anol leanie Hakes having a little pre-clevotions fun. Mary Ellen Dillon was at the receiving encl of a very funny phone conversation. Dick Bunn may not look especially happy sewing on his football letter, but Winning it was probably part of one of his happiest high school clays. Har- lan Phillips Cleftl and Ray Eclgington enjoyed a boyish prank, raiding the cookie jar. vigff ' , , f1 ' g F7-'F .

Little Musl-ry Squad Uriheateri un Home Court An all-veteran quintet coached by Lefty Schnack this year gave Muscatine High School a seasonal record of I9 wins in 24 contests. The team had for its first six men Iettermen from last year's squad. The Muskies started the season in a very impressive manner by defeating Iowa City, the defending state champs, 41-20. In the very next game the Purple and Gold disposed of the present state champs, Daven- port, by a score of '34-30. The team this year had all its bad luck out of town, suffer- ing every one of the five losses on a foreign floor. The only losses in the regular season were to Clinton, Ottumwa, Davenport, and Webster City. The Muskies beat every team which had beaten them with the exception of Webster City, a team that was scheduled only once on the Christmas trip to the North. In conference play the team won I3 while losing only I. This record gave the Muskies a 'lie for the Little Six crown with Ottumwa. ln tournament play the team won the district played at Muscatine by defeating University I-ligh of Iowa City and Lyons of Clinton, but they lost to Davenport, the new state champs, in the sub-state. Page 18 The six boys above were the nucleus of the team during the 1946-47 season. Top row Cleft to rightlz Gene Paetz, senior guard and captain of the squad, was given first team honors on the all-conference team and honorable mention on l.D.P.A. and Register all-state teams. lim Proffitt, senior forward, was placed on the second all-conference team and given hon- orable mention on the l.D.P.A. squad. Tom Bloom, senior guard, was the spot player of this year's squad. Bottom row: Kenneth McCleary, junior forward, is the only starter re- turning next year. Willis Valett, senior guard, was a first team all-conference player and was given second team l.D.P.A. and fifth team Register all-state honors. Sonny Phillips, senior center, was one of the hardest fighters on the sguad. Page lf? 'Tx x . .

The team participated in the reorgan- ized Little Six Freshman-Sophomore Conference and gained an even split in the 14 games played as preliminaries to the A Squad conference battles. The B Squad started slowly, losing four of their first five games. With the return of Bill Sturms and DeWayne Mclntyre, former A Squad members, at the end of the first half of the schedule, they closed fast and finished the season with five victories in the last six starts. Among the sophomores who will be greatly missed are Ierry Boulund, lerry Grady, Bay Edgington, lohn Hahn, Harlan Phillips, Bill lohnson, and Captain Tommy Thomas. These boys will probably furnish valuable A Squad material next year. Freshmen who showed promise were Gary Gordy, George Hahn, and Robert Lick. The team played in the finals of the county tournament, but they were defeated by West Liberty's varsity team, 19-18. The freshmen played two games with lowa City, winning at Iowa City in a thrilling overtime battle, 33-31. Page 20 -N sxl X X.

Hansuirs Underclassmen Gain TWU Victuries The B Squad, under the direction of Bob Hanson and Tom Bruner, came through a tough schedule with a record of two wins and four losses plus a wealth of experi- ence and knowledge that will prove valuable in future years. The team was beaten by Wapello, Iowa City, St. Ambrose, and Reynolds, Illinois, while gaining decisions from Reynolds and Wapello. The team had a very satisfactory season, considering the fact that much of the squad was composed of freshmen. Boys who showed some promise for the A Squad next year were Andy Hibbert, Harry Lewis, Bob Iones, and Iohn Hahn in the line, along with George Hahn, Gary Gordy, and Iim Marshall in the backfield. The outlook for next season is very bright with so much of the fine material that was shown this year returning.

Might Wehermen Rapture First Grid Title Co-Champs of the Little Six! This was the A Squad's claim to fame for the l946 season. Under the direction of Skip Weber and Lefty Schnack, the team was victor in six of the eight games played. The only defeat was in the first game of the season at the hands of the St. Ambrose eleven, and the only other mar on the record was a tie with Burlington in the second encounter in the schedule. From this game to the last of the season the Muskies proved themselves to be unbeatable, although they were pushed to the limit against Washington, Zl-l4, and Mount Pleasant, 7-2, and climaxed this drive with a top-flight performance at Ottumwa to win the title. Mus- kies will long remember the Ottumwa thriller because it brought home to Muscatine its first football crown.

Second-Year Wrestlers in Puur Dual Bets Competing for the second season, Muscatine wrestlers showed great improve- ment and won four of eight dual meets. Ralph Warren, captain of the squad, pro- duced a fine record, winning l2 of l3 matches. His only loss was suffered in the second round of the state finals. The team won victories from Davenport, Moline, Burlington, and McKinley of Cedar Rapids. They also placed fourth in the district meet at Davenport. Ralph Warren won the district championship in the l55-pound class. One of the highlights of the season was the purchase of purple and gold uniforms. The prospects for next season are fine in view of the fact that several A Squad men are returning. These looys are Loren Goss, Keith Bloomer, Kenneth Phelps, Earl Laws, Don Hopkins, LaVaun LaRue, Harold Miller, George Smalley, and Earl Cochran. The boys not returning are George Cordwell, Keith Kemp, Marlyn Whit- mer, Reginald Meyer, and Captain Warren. ln only two seasons of activity the sport has become very popular at M. H. S.

Like his older brothers, the F. F. A. members, every good Cfreenhand hopes to merit the "State of Iowa Farmer" degree someday. The F. F. A. boys held regular meetings twice each month and stressed cooperative activities among the members. In fact, the club's many social and recreational events stimulated a more friendly relationship. Their familiar blue corduroy jackets were prevalent in M. H. S. halls, and nine times out of ten the wearers of these famed jackets also wore broad grins which illustrated the boys' spirit of friendliness. Lindley B. Hoopes, F. F. A. sponsor, deserves loads of credit for the fine work he has done to fulfill the club's aim: "To develop the farm boy into a stronger rural citizen."

Curia lleqia Haul-is as uslsies' Uldest Club Curia Regia's meaning, the royal division, seems a very fitting name for this club. The oldest one at M. H. S., it was organized in l9ll. The members, Musky Latin students, enjoyed every third Wednesday when they could skip sixth period study hall to attend the meetings. l-lighlights of the year included the December initiation and special meeting and the May picnic at Wild Cat Den. Regular busi- ness meetings were seldom skipped, however, for besides interesting programs there were refreshments to make things even more interesting. First semester officers included Pat Zeug, presidentp Andy l-libbert, vice-presi- dentp Donna Eichelberger, secretary, and Phyllis Mclieown, treasurer. Second semester officers were Andy I-libbert, president, Marilyn Eichenauer, vice-presi- dentg Betty Russell, secretary, and Marcia Fuller, treasurer. Miss I-letty Margaret Kernble was the adviser of this group. Page U3 ' q ','. :gif-flgui? . . A 9 'vk' . ' ---" i - pm f ,K.,.Qi5,ij,5+ "-wma, 2, ,wx , H-q'."""-'-Q-Q, K ' 2 ,..

Eurnpleted Emp Brings Happy Ba 5 for Staff The Auroran office was the scene of constant hustle and bustle. Cries such as "Where's my dummy?" "ls that copy typed yet?" and "Are both typewriters being used?" could be heard by anyone passing by the Auroran office during the sixth period or after school. The yearbook caused many anxious moments during the year. All copy had to be at the printers' by April first, and there were many times when everyone connected with the publication of the book held his breath, crossed his fingers, and hoped the deadline could be met. Members from the last year's journalism class edited the bi-weekly, assisted by members of this year's journalism class. loan Sywassink, with Mary Ann lohnson as senior assistant, managed the yearbook publication, and Sallie Stark managed the newspaper staff.

Paqe 97 The Neighbors House Our neighbor's is an oldish house . . . a wide, white house set on the hill where shades are rarely drawn . . . so that the lights seep out and the dawns creep in and shadows climb up on the pines and hide in the upstairs halls. Theirs is a quiet house . . . over and above the laughing and the scuiiling you can hear . . . the crackling of the fires on many hearths and the purring of big kettles on the stove . . . Theirs is a hungry house where apple bowls and trenchers filled with nuts - and plates oi cheese and bread and meat and milk and opened pickle jars are everywhere in evidence . . And even in the bedrooms . . . little bags of private sweets are hidden under the pillows out of sight . . . in case . . . one should wake hungry in the night. In homes where good food and good liv- ing are the rule, the name of H. l. Heinz Company and the flavor of Heinz 57 Varie- ties are well known and much admired. 1. Secretary to the President.
