Edwards limi:-r Pence Grimes Gehrke Nahours Compton I-'Ianni-lly Coaches and Captains and Edwards placed on the all-league first team with Hosier, Pence, Nabours, and Dallinga receiving second team positions. Ted Grimes was selected as captain of the all-league team. The league race was completely dominated by two teams. The others were far behind, fighting to place as high as possible. Like Salina, Manhat- tan defeated every league team and only the Ma- roons stood between them and another C. K. L. championship. Clay Center proved to be the rough- est hurdle to cross. Tom Flannelly saved the day for the Indians when he caught a speedy Clay Cen- ter back on the two yard line. With their power- ful line, the Braves held the Tigers for nine downs and after that the Redskins never again came close to being scored upon. After a tough schedule which included few easy games, five C. K. L. teams had been defeated. Only Salina stood in the path of the Indians and another conference championship. Both teams had a per- fect record in league play and they were both de- termined to win this final game. The winner held undisputed possession of the league crown while to the loser went the honors of losing only one game. Many games of rugged competition lay behind, and this was the crucial battle of the season. The Ma- roons were a much heavier team, but slower. The Indians were light and speedy. Salina was the scene of the encounter. A crowd of 6,500 fans witnessed the clash of the two powerful teams. The Indians took the initiative and scored early in the game. The heavier Salina line battered the Red- skin's running attack, but that didn't stop them. They took to the air and passed Salina crazy. It Dickens Schwartz Eidson Balder 1 . was Grimes and Cleavinger on the pitching end, with Dallinga doing the receiving. Salina scored its only touchdown on a pass from Bobby Knight to Koenig. In a mighty last half drive which saw eleven boys playing as one, Grimes scored the last touchdown of the season. The Salina Maroons, a supposedly unmovable object in the path to the C. K. L. championship had been removed, and the Indians again were the possessors of the league title. A Glorious Finale Ted Grimes, one of the co-captains this season, was one of the outstanding backs in the state. He did the biggest share of the punting and passing. He was selected as captain of the all-league eleven and placed on the all-state first team. He will be missed next season. Kay Cleavinger, was the other co-captain of the squad. Kay did a superb job of calling signals as well as his share of the scoring. He was selected on the league first team and given honorable men- tion on the all-state team. Bernard Dallinga, now of the U. S. Navy, was the blocking back on the team. He did a fine job of smashing down the opposition for the ball carrier. He shared in the scoring and was a fine team man. He placed on the all-league second-team. Dick Nabours, played a superb job of playing tackle for the Indians. He is big and rugged and did his share of the work in holding the offensive power to a minimum. He was placed on the all- league second team and received honorable men- tion on the all-state team. son I-Ierwig Machin Busenbark - f wmzz fr -f , I .. A IV' L IW . 223' - .4 Q2 ,en 9...

He was outstand- ing all year and played a grand game at all times. He made the first team on the all-league team and honorable mention on the all-state team. Bill Edwards, was the other member of the In- dians to receive the honor of being placed on the all-state first team. He also was selected for the all-league first team. He was a beautiful down- field blocker and was responsible for the out-come of "21'7," which worked so successfully. He was rugged on the defense as Well as on the offense. Dave Lewis, a small but rugged guard, played a swell game at the side of Edwards. Dave did his share in bringing the championship to M. H. S. Ernie Pence is the rough and rugged type of cen- ter. He is light in weight but he did a whale of a job in spite of his size. You could always depend on his passes being good and his assignment taken care of. He was placed on the all-league second team. George Bascom is the product of the last year's B Squad who came into the limelight this year as a guard. He played the game rough and tough and was the aggressive type of ball player. Thornton Gehrke was another team member who came up from the B squad. He played his first game of football against Lawrence. He was a fine defensive end and shared in the team scoring. He made the all-league first team and the all-state second team. Boles Nelson Parker Lovett Jim Balderson was one of Manhattan's spirited reserve team centers. He played a great part in the final outcome and success of the season. Richard Cederberg was the lightest boy on the squad, but that didn't affect his playing in the least. He was the sparkplug of the squad. He had a fighting determination and played a fine game at gua.rd. Ralph Dickens played a grand game at guard. Regardless of a knee injury he was in there giving his all for the team. He was good on defense as on offense. Bob Herwig was a hard fighting unconquerable- spirited back on the Indian football team. He was a fine punter and a good team member. Jim McCole, was a powerful and burly Indian back. He had the old will to win and was very hard to stop once he got started. Bob Ramsey, a tall, rugged end, really developed towards the end of the season. He was a hawk on defense and a good pass catcher. Don Scott, played a fine game at end until he re- ceived a broken arm. He was a grand team mem- ber. Ray Thompson was the mighty mite of the team. Although small in stature, he was plenty rugged at all times. He had the will and determination that a superb player possesses. Gale Kloeffler was a new member to the team this year. He didn't play a great deal, but he was a great boy to have on the team.

Coach "Boots" Johnson started the 1944-45 season with seven returning lettermen and two returning reserve lettermen. The seven re- turning hoopsters were Ernie Pence, captain and forward: Ted Grimes forward' Fred Rogers for- ward Don Plummer guard Thornton Gehrke guard Tom Flannelly center and Kay Cleavrnger guard Paul Schwartz forward and Bill Hosrer center were the returning reserve lettermen Al though passrng an uneventful cage season the Indians fought hard coming rn last with one league victory About frfty boys turned out for basketball and practice was underway with the throttle wide open by December 1 Later the squad was cut down to a maximum of thirty frve boys The first game was to take place December 9 with Emporia but It was postponed due to bad weather A spirited Redskrn quintet opened the season with a close battle at Chapman which the I1 rsh won by the small margin of 33 to 32 And rn early January the Clay Center Tigers journeyed to Man hattan to wrest a rough game from the Indians 52 to 35 In early January also the Junction City Blue Jays trounced the Braves taking them to a beat mg of 45 to 22 The Jays were out for revenge as a result of the wallopmg the Redskins gave them during the football season Grimes of M H S and Hood of J C scored high rn points Grimes scored 6 during the game Hood scored 16 M H S hoopsters then fell prey to the Emporia cagemen rn a close fought non conference game vshrch ended with the final breathless score of 20 to 21 Taking top scoring honors for the Braves was Ted Grimes who rung up a total of six points Following close on Teds heels were Schwartz and Plummer with four points each Accor ding to Coach Johnson the boys played a well fought game against an evenly matched opponent In the Indians camp the Tribe was defeated by the high flying Cowboys from Abilene 57 to 31 Three Abilene boys staged a scoring race among themselves and were three good reasons why the Cowboys gave us a licking The Indians were very cold from the field, and very consistent from the charity line. To the more experienced Lawrence Lions, the Redmen aggregation lost a hard, non-conference battle, 39 to 22. The Lions were an aggressive ball club getting the biggest share of the rebounds and using the fast break to great advantage Leaving their camp the Indians trekked to Salma to battle the Maroons The Manhattan quintet took their worst defeat of the conference in a 74 to 33 fmal score Captain Ernie Pence bottled Manhattan s hrghest individual score of ten points In a 40 to 24 finish the Indians were massacred by the McPherson Bull Pups In the first of two games played rn Nichols Gym at the college the Braves scalped the Chapman Irish rn a 30 to 16 score Eight hundred specta tors cheered the victory first one in the season The high point Indian was Grimes who bottled 16 points and the Irish high point man was Han nan with 5 points The Indians lost again to the Clay Center Tigers in an over time game the score ending 40 35 The Indians were tied seven to seven with the Tigers at the end of the first quarter but throughout the next three quarters the Manhattan quintet held the lead until the Trgers tied them at the end of the fourth quarter 33 33 In the overtime the Tigers left handed six four Tolrn bucketed six points The Junction City Jays again superrorly grabbed a game from M H S in a 50 39 fmal score Al though the Indians got hot rn the second half and scored 30 points to the Jays 21 it did not avail against the Junction City qurntets mighty drive rn the first half that carried them down the court to vlctory The Manhattan Indrans after a hard fought bat tle grabbed a non league victory over the Emporia Spartans in Nichols Gym to finish with a score of 36 26 Using their old technrque of a fast break as they did against Chapman they were rn command all through the game After the score was tied BASHFTBAII SQUAD Third row Lud Frser Coach S tter L s tt Hu ton V Ik nburg Nel on Pence Marlow I-r Y Blanchard Balderson Second Plumrr r Schwartz Ho rer Flanndly Grrme Gehrke Mr John on . , . . . . . . f !

The Eternal Language The Music Appreciation Club, formerly called simply the Music Club, was added to the interest club curriculum of Manhattan High School this year. Mr. Elbert M. Fly, sponsor, specified at the beginning of the school year that this club was to be devoted almost entirely to classical music. He stated that previously there had been little opportunity for those who enjoy such music to study it, and the new Music Appreciation Club would afford the chance to devote more time to that. The first program was provided by Mr. Fly, who explained the motive of the club and played several records typical of the kind of music the members would expect to hear throughout the year. The next meeting was devoted to the elec- tion of officers. They were as follows: Marilyn Moore, president: Corrine Holm, vice-president and program chairman: Carol Blecha, secretary- treasurer. There was no social chairman as the club voted not to have any social activities. Ambitious Artists The Art Club directed by Miss Dobson started another successful year with twenty-three mem- bers. At the beginning of the school year the following officers were elected: president. Ben Wohlberag vice-president, Gene Ernst: secretary- treasurer, LeMoyne Botterman: and program chairman, Tom Marshall with Dean Winter and Clifford Beck as his assistants. Soon after the election, Botterman resigned and Helen Parsons was chosen as the new secretary-treasurer. Several interesting programs were given- talks on different phases of art, and a movie on soap carving. Most of the time, however, was spent in working on projects which the club members chose and presented at the end of the year for judging. Projects included pictures and clay molding. Some signs were also made for the stamp and bond booth. During the time Miss Dobson was out of school with a broken ankle, Mrs. Congdon, the substi- tute art teacher, took charge of the club. irll Row: Allen. Shirley. Miss Ilolv-un, Winters, Marshall.

Eyes of the School The prmtrng of the Blue M of 1945 marks the twenty fifth annrversary srnce the frrst publication rn 1920 Wrth the choosing of a staff rt was de crded to call the year book the Blue M and charge each student S2 00 for his copy The work rn gen eral was rendered unusually drffrcult by the fact that there were no particular precedent to follow It was made a success because of help offered by the art pr rntrng and English classes as well as rn drvrduals and teachers Wrth the passing of each year the Blue M has become symbolic of our high school days and rs one of the reatest accomplishments of each senror class The Blue M of 1944 45 was made possrble through the work of the Journalism students aided by a mrnrmum amount of help from other students and members of the faculty Money to make the Blue M a success was derrved from varrous sources chiefly from a rumma e sale a dance a show and thc sellrnfz of cokes The Blue M s were distributed at the Signature Dance sponsored by the Journalism class held at the end of the year Thrs dance rs made one of the most rmpor tant events of the year by the crowning of the Blue M queen and the presentation of her at tendants Besides the mighty Blue M the Journalism class produces a weekly paper The confusion of a wlrrrlwrncl of beats assignment sheets cuts heads and features rs clrmaxed each Friday by the print mg of the Mentor a four page four column pub lrcatron The paper rs edrted by the Journalism the prrntrnfr class rn charge of Mr Fred Ernst The orrgrn of the Mentor dates back to the year 1918 19 when the purchasrng of a Job press a few fonts of type and the organization of the prrntrng classes made possrble the realization of the lon hoped for dream of a school paper A semi month ly publrcatron with a staff corrsrstrnff of members chosen from the Junror and senror classes was de veloped Three years later in 1921 the frrst Journalism class was organrzed The paper made great prov ress due largely to the support of the lo al business men and ranked as one of the few weekly high school papers rn the state Thrs year the reporters were kept quite busv and were apt to be found anywhere around M H S seeking news The editors and staff were chan ed every nrne weeks to give each student actual expe rrence in varrous types of newspap r work The Mentor rs frnanced by advertrsrng. from local merchants and money recerved from the student actrvrty fund Practrcally all of the hrffh school students other schools and over a hundred servrc men recerve the paper regularly In addrtron to prrntrng the Mentor other duties were performed by the Journalism students These consisted of prrntrng profframs for the Homecomrn football ame extras for the Pr skin Prom and the pr esentrng of an assembly pro ram which wrll linger lon in our memorres Freedom of the press IS a lrberty cherished bv Americans Thrs practrce of democracy rn the of the meaning of the Four Freedoms mk R right Ro Mrller Larol Blrcha Roma Ice lx nuly 'Vlary Cerlarh lhxllr rrtln lhwerlx tidy C' rrx r 5 Xl rj l I ll m L rrolyn Glover Ru hard Grrffmy.
