However, when the boys went up against Auburn, they didn't fare so well, although they put up a game battle. The season ended with Virden in a tie for second place in the M.S.M. Conference.

With no height to work on, the boys played very good ball all season. The team won T3 of 25 games including tournament games. Virden lost the M.S.M. to Franklin by a score of 76 to 63. Virden played a tall Springfield High team in the Regional Tour- nament. The boys in purple and white put up a good battle and it was a close game until the second half when the superior height be- gan to tell. The Bulldogs finished a rather discouraging season as far as the M. S.M. was concerned but have hopes that they will cap the M.S.M. Conference next year. A rough game!

This was to repeat the performance that the had given last year. The boys knew that they would not sweep the field events as they did llast year. The scoring' would be low and it was estimated that 35 to 40 points would win the M. S.M. track meet. Virden took only two first place ribbons. Bill Dodd won first in the low hurdles and the 880 yard relay team, made up of Bud Fuiten, John Clinton, Fred Lynch, and Bill Dodd, took a blue ribbon. Girard came out on top, beating Virden by one-sixth of a point with 42 2f3 points. Virden came in a close second with 42 V2 points. Waverly was third with 35 lf3, Auburn was fourth with 42 if2, and Northwestern was fifth with 26 points. Earl Voyles of Girard set a new M.S.M. high iump record with a leap of 5 feet 9 lf2 inches, one half inch over the former record. 35 ' OwuTemwT0f VKMORU CHEERLEADERS Linda Smith Ann English Betty Parker Wanda Sims Betty Qualls HELP THE CHEERLEADERS BACK THE TEAMS Betty Qualls Linda Smith Wanda Sims Ann English Betty Parker E V, Q' Q 1 .
