47 Pep Club "Plenty of pep" was generated by the Blue Drag- ons this year by the several changes made in the club. New rulings made it possible for any sopho- more to join and to wear a cap that was adopted for the sophomore section alone. The old members are to vote at the end of the year on the eligibility of the sophomores to join the junior and senior sec- tion. Sophomores will be judged on merit alone. Those wearing the uniform consist of the juniors and seniors that had returned. June Limbocker, sophomore, Ward Haylett, jun- ior, and Mary Beth Walker, senior, were elected by the student body as our cheerleaders for the foot- ball and basketball seasons. The oflicers heading the sixty-seven members and as elected by the club were Dorothy Ratliff, presi- dent, Dorothy Drake, vice-president, Charlene Spel- man, secretary-treasurer. The climax of the year's work was the banquet in honor of the M. H. S. basketball squad. One hun- dred and fifty-eight guests were present at the ban- quet, held Monday, March 6. Girls' Intramurals Girls Intramurals were sponsored by Miss Opal Gaddie, and many sports were enjoyed by the girls who participated in them. The sports that were played during their alloted season were: fall and spring tennis, fall and spring softball, volley ball, basketball, and shuffle board. After signing up for intramurals, the girls were divided into five teams, Yanks, Cubs, Phantoms, M. H. S. All Stars, and Sluggers. For basketball only, another team was organized. Fall tennis singles were won by Shirley Marlow, and fall tennis doubles were won by Shirley Marlow, and Marjorie Goldstein. Fall softball championship was won by the Sluggers, and the volley ball cham- pionship was won by the Yanks. Spring tennis, spring softball and shuffle board haven't terminated yet.

46 A Successful Basketball Season Basketball lettermen returning for the 1938-39 season included Don Kastner, Bob Gahagen and Den- zil Bergman, Coach Prentup built with these boys and se-veral reserve lettermen a fighting team that was victorious in nine out of ninteen games. Manhattan started the season right by winning three of their first five games. The first game of the year was a thriller staged at Clay Center, De- cembtr 163 as the closing seconds ticked away, Pri- deaux swished a long shot from the center of the court giving us a 21 to 20 victory. During the next two weeks the Blues dropped both games of an exchange with Abileneg losing the first game on the home court 25 to 28, and the other at Abilene 27 to 30. Manhattan made a successful week-end trip to Nebraska defeating Wymore Friday night January 6, 45 to 333 Beatrice Saturday night by the score of 29 to 13. The MHS squal played their first conference game the next week on the home court, bowing to Law- rence, 22 to 315 but the following week the Blues defeated Junction City on their rival's court, 27 to 18. Hard luck set in and Manhattan lost the next three in a row, the first on January 20, to Ottawa, 13 to 185 then to Topeka, 16 to 27, and finally drop- ping the third to Emporia, 23 to 27. Fighting mad over their three conference losses, the Blues came back to beat Junction City, February 4, 19 to 18, and Clay Center the next week, 37 to 35. Again Manhattan weakened and dropped a game to Law- rence in a hard-fought battle which ended 17 to 19. The Blues came back to down Ottawa, February 24, for their only conference victory by the score of 24 to 19, but Emporia and Topeka proved too strong for the Jr. Wildcats, and won by the scores of 26 to 30, and 27 to 37, respectively. Manhattan looked good in their first two games of the regional tournament at Clay Center, winning from Beloit, 33 to 27, and Concordia, 28 to 185 their luck didn't last, however, and Clay Center, who had previously been beaten twice by the Blues, won the final game by the score of 24 to 28. Prideaux was the individual high scorer for the .season with the average of 7.58 for 17 games, he made a total of 120 points. This year's first string was composed of Jim Pri- deaux, Bob Gahagen, Don Kastner, Neal Hugos, Denzil Bergman, Elmer Lutz, Dick Doryland, Bob Kendall, Howard Hamlin, and Bob Nelson, the sec- ond team included Bill Adams, Paul Cibolski, Phil Charlton, Earl Maholand, Charles Holtz, Harold Smith, Dale Ham, Pat Farrell, Ken Oberg, Bill Payne, and Earl Miller. Assistant coach Bruce Smith who had charge of the second string developed some promising material: the future stars that were on the second string included Phil Charlton, James Smith, Robert Wells, Bill Wickers, Harold Hunt, Clyde Rodkey, Arthur Lewis, Warren Taylor, Henry Chapman, Richard Lund, Herbert Ford, J. B. Wol- berg, Wayne Oberhelman, Robert Toburen, Warren Toburen, Robert Finn, Wendall Obenland, Marshall Walker, Bill Faubion, Charles Hoffman, Donald Mal- lon, and Franklin Scofield. Prospects for next year's team are not dim be-- cause of boys like Nelson, Hamlin, Kendall, Oberg, and Payne who will probably be the main-stays dur-- ing next year's basketball season. Boys' Intramurals The Boys' Intramural Association was organized a few years ago to give the boys who don't go out for varsity teams a chance to take part in various sports. Mr. Mordy, American history teacher, spon- sors this movement: Elmer Lutz was elected presi- dent of the intramural association this year and Donald Willis, secretary. Sports included in the as- sociation's functions are: touch football, basketball, basketball free throw, baseball, horseshoes, and tennis. Intramural touch football brought out 76 boys who were divided into two leagues and several teams. The Bachelors won in the National League, the Ind- ians, the American Leagueg the play-off game be- tween these two teams for the championship proved the Bachelors to be superior. The members of the Bachelors team were Paul Jorgenson, Ken Oberg, Roy Jones, Lawrence Funk, Clifford Jenson, Leon- ard Clark, Philip Van Winkle, Perry Peine, Bob Keith, Ward Haylett, Elmer Lutz, Lawrence Math- ews, Bu1'ton Scofield, Fred Huber, Howard Tea- garden, Harold Suboterg the members of the Indians team were James Foster, Don Ross, Dan Muller, Norman Neimeier, James Mall, Charles Burson, Dale Ham, Phil Charlton, James Scott, Bill Grifiing, Continued on page 48

Lake got fifth in the half mile, The Blues track squad jumped into a rather heavy season with ten meets on the schedule this year. Don Kastner was elected captain. Don started in his sophomore year by running the 220 yard dash in less than 22 seconds and being a consistant point winner throughout the season. In his junior year due to injury he was out practically all of the sea- 3011. The season opened with Manhattan dropping their first dual to Junction City 52 to 82. The teams were very evenly matched in the track events, but the Blues lost in the field. Kastner won the 220 yard dash but dropped a close race to Sullinger in the 100 yard dash. Johns and Keith won their respec- tive races, the 880 yard run and the 220 low hurdles. Grandfield and Kendall took the 4401 yard dash and the pole vault. Manhattan won one of the three re- lays, the medley. Following the Junction meet a small group went to the Sterling Relays. Johns set a new record in the medley relay Manhattan started out well and in the half mile 2:04.'. The old record was 2:0i7.2. In all probability would have shatered the present rec- ord of 3:37.5 if a small boy had not run into the anchor man and caused him to break stride and lose valuable seconds. The boys who ran in the relay were Kastner,'220 yards, Keith, 100 yards, Grand- field, 440 yards, and Lake the 880 yard run. In the Salina invitation Kastner got second in the 100 and 220 yard dashg Grandfield, third in the 4-410 yard dash gJohns, first in the half mileg Payne fourth in the high jump and the third in the med- ley relay. The showing was good under keen comp- ctition. We had two duals, Onaga and Clay Center. The Blues beat Onaga bad and lost a close one to Clay 76 to 64. In the Onaga meet we won all the track events but the high hurdles, the mile run, and the half mile relay. Winning in the field events the meet was rather one sided. With Clay Center the Blues won all the track events except the mile run and the half mile relay. The men from Clay cleared the field events to get the winning points. Nine members of the track team went to Law- rence to enter the K. U. relays. The boys returned earning one pointy Kastner pulled a fourth in the 100 yard dash for two pointsg and the medley re- lay fKastner, Keith, Fenton and Johnsj won for five points. The boys had a big day at the Emporia invitation getting second behind Emporia's first. Capt. Don Kastner had a busy day winning the 100, 220 and 440 yard dashes. Kendall got first in the pole vault and Johns a first in the half mile. The Blues placed all relay teams: the mile got first, the medley sec- ond, and the half mile fourth. Keith got second in the low hurdles. Three meets are scheduled for the end of the sea- son. The league meet at Emporia, the Regional here at Manhattan and those who have qualified for the State meet will travel to Topeka at the end of the school year.
