Mr. Wahe participates in racketball
With only one exit, the four walls seemed like enemies to those slow-moving individuals on the racquetball court.
These people had faced the junior dean, Mr. Wahe. He played as much as possible with his busy schedule. "It's a challenge I"d like to take up more often." he said.
Mr. Wahe matched up against Mr. Smith, Mr. Hallbcrg, his wife Shelia and daughter Stacy. In one game between Mr. Wahe and Stacy, it was each his own as the ball whizzed by, barely missing one or the other. Even though Stacy was not as quick as Mr. Wahe, she held her own winning 21-20. Mr. Wahe said, "I was taking it easy on her. She’s just a kid.”
This fast-moving game, seemingly safe at first, was actually quite harmful. For example, That little rubber ball, when hit hard enough, could leave red marks. The walls were enough to jar the body into a state of soreness while the racquet left bruises that lasted for about a week. This game was made for those who liked fast action, and Mr. Wahe was one of them.

Senior dean captures second
All was quiet. The horses line up at the starting gate. The gun sounded. They headed out of the gate. One of the jockeys looked like ... no it couldn't have been, but it was: Duncan Keid!
During his high school years in Pimento, Indiana, was when Mr. Reid first became interested in horses. He worked as a stahleboy, grooming and running old race horses. "I worked there about four years. It was an educational experience.” Mr. Reid was chosen to harness race for charity at the Quad City Downs. There were three heats: June 5th, June
12th, and June 26th. Mr. Reid placed 1st on June 5th, sending him to the finals. During the qualifying heat on June 26th, he placed 2nd. "It was nice to know I could do something like that and have so much fun doing it.”
Mr. Reid said, "The thrill of controlling the fast moving horses and the sense of danger added to the joy of victory.” When asked if he would race for other than charity, Mr. Reid replied, "I'd like to. Nothing compares to the excitement of harness racing ... except basketball." $
A he come off ihc track. Mr. Reid give the "high ign". happy he ha placed tecood.
