Track with eight points. 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-
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-
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
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.

"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.

The four lowest scores in the qualifying tourna-
ment which decided who would represent Manhat-
tan were turned in by Hall Milliard, Jay Funk, El-
mer Lutz, and Junior Lovell.
The first match of the year was played at To-
peka with Wyandotte and Topeka, the competition
proved too stiff and the Manhattan lads came in
last. Uzelac of Wyandotte was medalist with a 76
over Shawnee's well trapped layout, the Topeka
golfers, however, had the low total for the four man
team and won the match.
The next week-end Topeka played here and nosed
out a 659 to 556 victory over a water soaked course.
The course was so wet the match had to be post-
poned until afternoon so the water could be drained
from the g1'eens. Schoonover of Topeka was med-
alist with a 76.
The Blues next match was a mid-week affair with
Marysville on the Manhattan Country Club course.
We won from the Marysville boys by the score of
8 to 4, Elmer Lutz was the medalist with a 72.
Manhattan played a return match with Marysville
the next week and again defeated them. This time
the Blues won by a score of 'IV2 to 41!2, Hall Millia1'd
was the medalist with a 76. Douglas Cave who had
beaten Lovell out of the fourth man position played
in this match.
The Manhattan boys added another victory to
their list when they played at Emporia's Invitation
Tournament. The golfers were first in a field of sev-
eral schools which included Topeka, Newton, Ot-
tawa, and others. Newton was second with 1046
points to Manhattan's 1456: the Blues were first in
the 2 and 4 man team events, and won second and
fourth in the singles.
A tournament was held at the first of the year
among those boys interested in tennis and Max
Decker, last year's number-one man, again emerged
the winner. Bob Gahagan landed in the number-two
position while Chan Murray and Don Sollenberger
held down the number three and four posts, respec-
At the Salina invitational, which,was their first
meet of the year, the Blues, except Decker, were
eliminated in the second round. Decker was elimi-
nated in the quarter finals.
The next week found the Manhattan High tennis
men busily engaged. On Saturday they met the Be-
loit team and lost 4-2. Gahagen and Decker were
the only ones to win their singles matches, while
Beloit swept the doubles to cinch the meet.
On a return meet the following Monday at Beloit,
the Manhattan boys encountered a few court haz-
ards in the form of a high wind and dust storm and
it was almost a complete rout 5-1. Norman Ross,
who challenged Don Sollenberger, was the only one
to win his match.
On Wednesday of the same week, Manhattan met
Junction City and lost the dual meet 5-2. Sollen-
berger won the only singles match while Ross and
Decker turned in the only doubles victory.
At the Eastern Kansas Conference meet which
was held at Emporia the boys had better luck. Max
Decker got into the semi finals. Bill Adams, a new
comer on the team and the only junior on the team,
also ad-vanced to the semi finals. He lost also after
a hard fight to Topeka's number-one man. In doub-
les Gahagen and Sollenberger got in the semi finals
and lost to Emporia, however they won the consola-
tion honors by defeating Lawrence.
In the regional meet which was held at Manhattan
all of the players were eliminated in the first round.
