DEAR M, H, S, ,
It seems rather funny, since it is our turn to go. We have seen so many sneak out ahead of us that we really never realized
that our turn was coming up so fast. It is almost like a basketball game, At the first there is so much time to go, even at the
half you never know who is going to win because the lead may change so quickly. So many come out for practice, but only a
few play the game. Some foul out and others just weren't up to trying. While all this is going on, that old clock is constantly
ticking away. Time marches on, and it often appears as if we are not going to win. Then all of a sudden the gun goes off.
We find that we are ahead, We wonl We are the heroes of the year, No one else--just we, the class of '53,
I guess this doesn't mean so much to you, old M,H,S., because you are able to see this once a year, Oh! we know we
aren't just like the class of '52 or even the ones of '3O. That is what we would like you to remember, the little differences
other than our names and the number in our class. It is like that basketball game we were talking about, A year after it is
played very few remember just exactly what happened. The ones that do remember are those who played and the ones who
cheered for their team to win. In the game that we will remember it will be a little different, We will recall our starting
team or sophomores, at forwards were Dale and Charlene, the center was Harry, and the guards were Bill and Karen. For
our first try at the Pigskin king and queen we had Les, Kenny, Sue and Martha. We shall remember the many who started
in the band, orchestra and our beginning in athletics, A few dramatic stars were born in the production, "Yes and No"
But, that old clock kept moving right along, Soon we were ready to start the second part of that game. As juniors we
thought that we were the greatest of them all, A new team was on the floor. There were Frankie, Bonner, Karen, Ann and
Harry who were playing hard for the class of '53, There was another chance at the honor of Pigskin king and queen, Our
play production "The Patchwork Quilt" was the very best, A great many of our members were in the all school play "The
Ghost Ship". We participated in band, orchesua, robed choir, and all the sports, to show those seniors what we were going
to do. We threw quite a Gold-diggers Ball, then our traditional Junior-Senior where we said good-by to the fine class of '52,
But wait, here came the class of '53,
The horn was sounded, just one quarter left. Could this be us? Why they just started this ball game. The clock was right,
"My, how time does fly". Another new team was in control, There were Les, Bill, Sue, Kay, Frankie, Karen, Bob, Rims,
Ann, Diane. Why we all got to score. This was the year we had to take the cake, We crowned her majesty, Queen Karen,
and his honor King John, to climax our Pigskin Prom. The football team was the champs of the mighty C. K, L. In band, or-
chestra, and robed choir we were still going strong. Many helped publish the weekly Mentor, some helped add up the mater'
ial for our annual, others were in the school plays.
Bang! The gun goes off, The game is overl We have won, we are the heroes now, but there are the juniors following ,
close behind. I guess we had better close now, we haven't any time to kill, Our class has another game coming up, they say
it is a little longer, but the same rules will apply. We will try to improve our passing and our team work too. You have
helped us understand and find our way around. So in parting we would like to say, "Thank you for all you have added to our
lives and the many memories we shall cherish for ever and ever".
"FAREWELL OLD M.H. S, "
The class of '53

During the '52-'53 school year the junior class accomplished many things that they may well be proud of. They were
led through the year by Terry Murphy, president, Kaye Koon, vice president and Janet Kugler, secretary-treasurer.
Marlene Young, Mary Lee Durland and Joe Holbert gave the class of '54 a voice in school government by serving on
the Student Council. Helping lead the band during the half-time ceremonies at the football games were majorettes
Marlene Young and Paula Hannigan while Terry Murphy, as head cheerleader and Sandy Hunt helped the student body
cheer the team onto the CKL championship.
The juniors that lettered on the winning team were Bill Cummins, Roddy Long, Don McCord and Dale Smith. The
football season was climaxed by the Pigskin Prom and the election of the Pigskin king and queen. Candidates from the
junior class for queen were Loretta Pound, Marlene Young and Natalie Harwood while Bill Cummins, Roddy Long, Don
McCord and Dale Smith tried for the king title.
The juniors were represented on the basketball A squad by Bill Cummins for part of the year and the B squad was
sparked on to many victories by the fireball juniors.
The junior play "Green Valley" presented on Nov. 21-22 had a huge cast that gave many juniors a chance to show
off their dramatic talent. The following students participated in the play that dealt with the problem of a dam similar
to the controversial Tuttle Creek project: Don Wilbur, Loretta Pound, Jimmy Grassman, Charley Peak, Kay Aye, Basia
Miller, Neal Van Doren, Dale Norris, Bunny Cowan, Earl Smaltz, Robert Lash, Bob Johnson, Frank Grippy, Marilyn
Fair, Loyd Harlan, Janet Kugler, Terry Murphy, Marian Teare, Dick Warren, Joe Holbert, Prudy McCracken, Mary
Rogers, Kay Koon, Gloria Dallas, Joy Yeo. and Kay Chappell.
When the all-school play, "The Tiger's Necklace" was presented the juniors were right in the middle of things. Four
of the parts went to Sandy Hunt, Shirley Yowell, George Hooper, and Mary Lou Ficke. The play, a mystery-comedy,
was given Jan. 29-30.
The biggest event in a M.H.S, girl's year, the Golddigger's Ball was held Feb. 7 in Ghost Town at Glitter Gulch,
alias the high school gym. The corsages were more wacky than ever before and everyone had fun. This dance, sponsored
by the junior class, brought in needed funds to put on the Junior-Senior banquet and dance. This event took place in the
spring and was a formal banquet followed by a dance.
After a successful junior year, the class of '54 will next tackle the completion of their last year in high school as

The 1952-53 "lowly" sophomores were out to dispense with their unwanted title and make a name for themselves.
After being accustomed to being the wheels of the junior high, they were not satisfied to sit back and let the upperclass-
men run the show. Gary Hixson, Diane Koon and Faith Bugbee were elected to lead the sophomores as they stepped into
their new realm while Leland Reitz and Bob Haines were elected to cast the sophomores' point of view on the student
council. Miss Marley provided the faculty support for the sophomores.
The sophs jumped right into the swing of MHS activities by being well represented on the football team, Although
there were no sophomore lettermen, they turned out in fine shape and received a lot of valuable experience. The
sophs didn't stop at football, for when the other sports rolled around the sophomores were sharing honors with the rest of the
To give the athletic teams the'support they needed the student body elected Faith Bugbee as one of the cheerleaders.
She represented the sophomores in this field during the first semester.
At the end of the successful football season, plans for a bigger and better Pigskin Prom were formulated, Any time
there were calls for volunteers to help on one of the committees, the sophomores led the line to offer their service. They
were well represented on all committees and came through with the cooperation that characterizes a loyal Ml-lS'er,
Lu Ann Burnette and Sandra Hodgson represented the class as candidates for Pigskin Prom queen while Benny Osburn and
Lorraine Alexander represented the sophomore boys as king candidates.
If the all school play is any indication of what future MHS dramatic productions will be like, there is nothing to
worry about. The sophomores came through with flying colors by landing five berths in the cast. They were represented
by Lynn Marti, Alice Stubblefield, John Rush, Richard Mansfield and James MacFarlane. Other members of the sophomore
class gave a helping hand to the success of the play by working behind the scenes on one of the crews.
The sophomores' chance to set the world on fire came at the Sophomore Party. They took the upper hand and put
on the whole thing by themselves without the help of the upperclassmen. All committees, headed by sophomores, went
to work to help make their big social function of the year an overwhelming success.
This year's sophomore class seems to be full of outstanding talent. Many of them served as officers in the various
interest clubs and in the pep club. They were also well represented in the band and orchestra as well as the Robed Choir.
All this added up to make a highly eventful year for the sophomores, and it is just the beginning of a triad of memory
filled years in the halls of Ml-IS.

Members of the staff from left to right

Early in the school year when the
journalism class started buckling down
to work, elections were held to elect
the Blue M staff. Jim Stewart was
elected editor and Karen Skiver was
elected business manager. Between
these two and Mr. Grimes, advisor
and instructor, the rest of the staff
was chosen. Bob Shipp was selected
as assistant editor, Wanetta Funk was
selected as the artist and Roger
Bishop was chosen as sports editor.
With these people to head the annual
and with the cooperation and helpful-
ness of the entire journalism class,
the student body and the faculty, this
year's annual was planned and

Under the direction of Lawrence Norvell, the orchestra has performed many
programs for assemblies as well as playing for the spring concert and various
other concerts. The orchestra played before the junior play, all-school play and
the senior play. At the time this copy was written, it was undecided whether they
would be hosts for the CKL String Clinic again this year or have an exchange
concert with Clay Center. The orchestra played a concert before the graduation
exercises and also played the "Pomp and Circumstance" when the seniors came
in. They have improved thoughout the year and are now a very well-balanced
playing group. Their music has ranged from the classical, to the popular and also
included many of the fine pieces of music by Beethov-en and Bach. The orchestra
has more members this year than last year. There were 38 then, and it was
composed of 42 this term.

its second year a success in our school

is a big help when they start playing
again with so many experienced players
They have added many a mellow note

The brass sextet has now finished
its second year as an organization in
M. H. S. with great success. Their
activities were limited to appearing
in the district festival and the state
contest. They had to give up an in-
terest club in order to practice, plus
using their after-school free-time
on Fridays. But they all agree, it
has certainly proven worth while.

a trombone, two trumpets, a French

This year the need was felt for a new girls' organization, so the versatile
Mr. Fly created the "Treble Clef Club." Under his direction, this group has
been outstanding throughout the year. The girls, with their crisp blue dresses
and symbolic white treble clefs, made an impressive sight.
Their singing was also very outstanding. During the year they took up as
many different types of songs as possible, so they have gained a wide knowledge
of basic fundamentals. This will be a great asset next year.
Although composed largely of juniors and sophomores, the group worked on
many advanced pieces. They gave performances in assemblies, at P. T. A. 's and
at the annual Christmas Musicale.
Everyone always looked forward to seeing and hearing the performances of
the "TrebleClefClub, "because of their attractive uniforms and their unusual
The Girls Glee Club was remarkable this year for their most rapid advancement
in picking up the fundamentals Mr. Fly must teach the inexperienced groups. This
group is the main supply of girls for "Treble Clef Club" and Robed Choirg therefore,
basic knowledge is extremely important. This organization has been very good at
learning this valuable firsthand knowledge.
They have appeared quite often and one of their most impressive performances
was at the annual Christmas Musicale. Another was the Spring Musical Concert,
where they sang many charming numbers.
Their simp e dress of gray skirts and pastel sweaters makes this group
attractive anytime of the year. They are a great asset to M. H. S.
Their preparation in advanced work wil make them an important foundation
for next year's vocal department.

Performing in the annual Christmas pro ram, the greatly expanded Boys'
Glee Club demonstrated their ever-present gine quality. Their performance in
the Spring Musicale was vastly enjoyed by the audience.
This group, like the Girls Glee Club, is the main supplement for the coming
year's Robed Choir. In Glee Club they are taught the basic fundamentals which are
instrumental in fine vocal ensembles.
The boys enjoyed doing college pep songs, but covered all types of music.

For underclassmen it will only mean anticipation of another year, but to seniors it is saying "goodbye" to one of

Composed of fifty-eight members, the list of activities of this vocal group is a long one, Heading the list are
the religious assemblies, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, including processionals and recessionals.
Continuing on down the list, service organizations and clubs are predominant. Highlights of the year were the
Christmas and Spring Concerts,
The choir's programs were always impressive and their repertoire ranged from novelty numbers to spirituals.
Choir was always one class known for its informality and fun, but when the blue robes and white collars were
donned for a performance, the attitude was changed, A sense of cooperation and seriousness then reigned.

One of the highlights on this year's musical calendar was the Christmas
Musical. Here the Orchestra is shown at the performance. This program
combined the orchestra, band, treble clef, girls' glee club, boys' glee club,

MHS's student council led by President Bob Hartley has again performed a
very efficient job. This sole student voice is a direct contact between the faculty
and the student body.
The enlarged council of nine members first prepared a budget which they
managed to keep within for the entire year. Besides carrying on its regular
projects as in years past, several new undertakings were started. The several
committees, started a year ago to give the students a bigger share in their
government, were continued. The Budget, Activity, Assembly and Point Revision
Committees were represented by several teachers with two members from the
council and two students representing the student body at large.
Proving popular since 1950, the coke machine remained tops, with both
students and faculty. Several other projects undertaken were preparing and
selling football programs, decorating football goal posts, selling and taking
tickets at the basketball games, arranging exchange assemblies, planning another
successful "twirp season" and sponsoring the Spring election. Climaxing football
and basketball seasons were the top social highlights of the year, The Pigskin
Prom and the Basketball Prom.
Members of the council are as follows:
President, Bob Hartley, Vice President, Diane Fellows, Secretary, Charlene

After an eight year drouth without having a championship football team, the
Manhattan Indians traveled to Salina Friday, November 14, to face a favored
Salina Mustang squad to decide the CKL. winner in one of the most hotly contested
races in the history of the league. Going into the fracas, four team standings
were hanging in the balance. The outcome of the game would decide the winner
as one of four league powers--Manhattan, Chapman, Salina or Junction City. Only
Manhattan could sweep the title undisputedly.
With both lines butting headS for the first period, it appeared a single touch-
down could easily provide the only scorin 5 however, with but a few minutes
remaining in the initial half, Knox unleaslged an aerial to Darling who in turn
lateraled off to Brown. Brown scampered the remaining distance for the first
marker. Only minutes later, after Suelter had recovered a Mustang fumble on the
Salina 47, Ball uncorked a pass to Darling who took it in stride on the five and
carried a Maroon tackler into the end zone.
The second half saw a duplication of the Indian superiority as the Braves ground
out three more tallies to trounce the Mustangs 35-0 and to sew up undisputed
possession of the CKL trophy with five wins against a lone defeat.
The Indians' steady, fine play all season long earned them, as well as the league
crown, a fifth place berth in the state AP poll. They suffered only two defeats,
one to the state mythical cham ion Lawrence Lions, 6-9, and to Junction City, 13-
19. They rolled over Marysvillle, Chapman, Clay Center, Topeka, Abilene,
McPherson and Salina. The Braves' potent offense racked up a total of 156 points
while their stubborn defense limited opponents to 67. Coach Ed Dissinger lettered
Z8 candidates, 24 seniors and four juniors.
Probably the hardest working members of a successful football team are
Coaches Bowman, Dissinger and Boles. those unheralded men who have the job of teaching the players their indi-
vidual positions on the squad. These men are the coaches.
Leading this year's Indians was Ed Dissinger, who in his first year at
the Tribe's helm piloted them to their first league crown in eight campaigns.
Rounding out the coaching staff are Phil Bowman, Dlsslnger's right hand
man on the A-Squad and Bob Boles, head B-Squad mentor. Bowman began
his career at MHS in IQSO after graduating from Kansas State College in
1948 and serving at Atwood, Kansas, for two years.
Bob Boles is a mainstay on the Manhattan coaching staff, as he has
been on various MHS athletic fields since before the war. Not only does
he handle the B-Squad, but he heads the basketballers and tennis players.

The Indian B-Squad had one of its finest seasons as the Junior Braves came
out on top in five contests while dropping only two games under the guidance of
their coach, Bob Boles,
The Braves started the season by taking two tussles from Wamego. They
smacked the Chapman Irish before suffering their first loss at the hands of
As the season went along, the reserves definitely improved. In their fifth
game they made one of their best showings of the season as they downed Clay
Center. Topeka went on a rampage and inflicted the Bolesmen with their second
In their final outin the Braves played by far their finest game as the B-Squad
swamped the Abilene Cowboys in running up their largest score of the season.
Every player on the squad saw action in the fracas.
Coach Boles' squad had great depth as he usually employed a two platoon
system and on occasion used three elevens. He will have a majority of this
squad back next year, so the Indians have a bright future awaiting them on the
gridirons in the coming campaigns.

Joe Steele, pictured at right, isn't very large, but he had a man sized
job in the position of manager for the football team. Joe is a junior and
earned his second managers letter this year. His duty was to be sure that
all equipment, including balls, helmets, and all other items that are nec-
essary to the squad are cared for in the proper way and are at the right
place at the right time.
People seldom stop to think how important the position of manager ac-
tually ls, but after one watches him work for a short time, it can be read-
ily seen that his tasks are tremendous. He must attend all practices and
games and know just where everything is at all times.

An extra point and a blocked punt were

Dissinger gave strong warning to CKL
opposition that Manhattan wou d have to

An underrated Manhattan eleven out-
played a favored Topeka Trojan squad and

Walker set up the winnin tally as he
pounced on a Topeka fumile, and Ralph
Ball broke into the end zone for the winning
marker midway through the final period.

The hapless Abilene Cowboys suffered
their fifth straight CKL loss to the on-
rushing Indians Halloween night 27-7, as
fullbacks Larry Kelly and Bill Cummins
paced the ground attack for the powerful
Braves. It was Manhattan all the way as
Ball, Knox and Brown each scored to pile

Sparked by halfback Les Brown, the
Manhattan Indians jumped into the CKL

edged a hard fighting McPherson Bullpup

After sewing three successful years as head football mentor at Holton, Ed Dissinger resigned to take the reins at
Manhattan in the fall of I952. He proved to CK-L opposition that the Indians were still a powerful foe fully capable of
downing any team.
Freshmen CKL coaches ruled the league this past season as Dissinger piloted his Indians into the number one spot
while Junction City with newcomer Lew Comer and Chapman under the initial guidance of Bryan Sperry were deadlocked
in the runner-up and third place slots,
Dissinger set out on his coaching career back in 1936 at Buffalo, Kansas, and then went to Lawrence the following
year where he served as assistant coach. Atwood, Oberlin and then Holton followed in that order. He entered the Army
in 1943 as a private and was discharged in 1947 as a captain,
He graduated from Baker University at Ba ldwin, Kansas where he lettered four years in both football and track. He
still holds the Kansas Conference mark of 4:23 for the mile run and has also done it in 4:15 outside of conference com-
P Dissinger is married and the proud father of an eight year old son and a four year old daughter.
Ion Walker, Manhattan's fine six foot five inch 215 pound tackle, was the largest man named to the past season's
All-State grid team. Walker, a twin monogram winning senior, was the backbone for the Indian's bone crushing defense,
His inspiring play in the title contest at Salina was probably his finest showing of the campaign as he reached over the
line to pull the Maroon backs dovm for losses on several occasions.
Francis Darling, Manhattan's fine end, was named to the All-CKL and All-Area teams plus receiving an honorable
mention for All-State honors. His fine pass catching and defensive tackling were outstanding even though he was hobbled
by an injured knee part of the season.
Larry Kelly was named to the All-CKL aggregation and placed on the second team of the All-Area squad. He was
also crippled with a leg injury but was well enough by November to pulverize the Salina defenders in crashing for a
pair of touchdowns.
Dale Hodgson, guard, and Ed Hanks, halfback, were named to the second string and an honorable mention post
respectively on the All-Area team.

several years have been able to figure on at least two wins each season,
both charged to Manhattan, dropped the Braves from the top rung
which they never recovered. They tied for fifth place in the final
With an addition of eight points in three games the Indians could
have ended the season with an impressive CKL record of eight wins and
only four losses instead of their far from spectacular
five wins against seven losses.
Junction City dropped them twice, once by two
and another time by a single point. Abilene also
edged the Braves out by two counters.
All thirteen lettermen on the squad were seniors
so next year's team will go into their first game with-
out a single minute's experience.
Each of the Indians' usual starting five was
leading scorer on occasion, proving the all around
scoring punch the Braves possessed. The opening
quintet was usually composed of Darling and
Kelly at forwards, Brown and Ball at guards, and
Hartley at the center post.

The Clay Center Tigers turned out to be the only CKL team the Indians could call their "cousins" as
the Braves triumphed over the Tigers twice, 67-55 and 73-59.
Little Ralph Ball sparked the Tribe's win in their only road success in league play as he plunked in
I9 points. He had to take runner-up honors, however, as Don Rosenow cut the cords seven times from
the field and on six occasions at the gift stripe to lead the scoring with 20 points.
The Indians hit a sizzling 442 on the MHS maples in mopping up the Tigers 67-55 as they gained

Manhattan and McPherson split their set as the Indians dropped the Bullpups at MHS 58-53 while the

Galen Rodgers poured in 67 points in the two contests to lead the Pup's
scoring. He hit thirty-two to no avail as Manhattan's balanced attack dropped
the McPherson squad in the first meeting.
Rodgers really got rolling at McPherson as he burned up the nets to set

Larry Kelly proved to be a full fledged Cowboy scalper as he poured in 28

eked out a 55-53 win on the AHS homeboards but the Indians retaliated at
Manhattan with a 67-55 drubbing.
In the Abilene win, the Indians led in every department but scoring as
they grabbed more rebounds and turned in a better shooting percentage. Kelly's
I7 led the scoring although Grumble of Abilene was close behind with I5.
Kelly's twenty-eight points and Bob Hartley's I7 rebounds were more than
enough to uproot the diminutive Cowboys on the MHS court as the Indians put on
the pressure in the third quarter to overcome an even first half,

The fast passing Scotties downed the Tribe early in December at Topeka
as Delk hit nearly half of Highland 's 61 points. Larry Kelly led the Brave
attack with I6 points and a like number of rebounds.
In the return engagement at Manhattan, Kelly again paced the Tribe's scor-
ing as he canned 29 points but the overall scoring punch of the Scotties proved
too much as the Braves went down to defeat 6I -67. Tom Davidson racked up 24
and Delk 21 for the winners,

of a deadline before the respective sea-
sons begin, is limited to pictures of
lettermen returning from last sea son's
squads. The track pictures include both
those who received first team monograms
and reserve lettermen.
These pictures do not show all those
who participated in this year's activities
as some did not return to the squads and
others came out for their first year.
This is but a small token of recog-
nition due these sports participants.

To add to its activities, the I-Ii-Y this year took over the sponsorship
of the student phone in the office. Along with this the club kept up its usual
tempo of doings by handling the concession stand at the football games and
working with the Y-Teens to fill baskets to provide ten needy families with
a Thanksgiving dinner.
The club kept its own schedule going by having a variety of programs,
ranging from the entertaining to the serious talks at the regular weekly
meetings to the social world in the form of the Mother-Son and Father-
Again this year M.H.S. Hi-Y was represented legislatively as it sent
three politicos to the Hi-Y Model Legislature in Topeka.
And to make everything a successful year, the I-Ii-Y'ers brought back
home the "Battle of the Sexes" trophy.

The Future Homemakers of America is a recently organized club, known
throughout the United States. By the same token the M.H.S. chapter of 1953 is
known throughout school by their good works.
Their many projects included baby sitting for mothers on election day so
they could vote, making scrap books for the Army hospitals and making May
baskets for the city hospitals.
A square dance with the F'.F.A. was a highlight
of the year, with the Christmas Party, chapter mother

A tiny drum with the MHS football players' names printed inside, a giant
helmet with a bright, smiling face and gayly decorated goal-posts set the scene
for the 1952 Pigskin Prom. Master of ceremonies, Bob Shipp, kept the audience
in suspense until out stepped "Her Majesty," Karen Skiver, and "His Majesty,"
Jon Walker. Applause filled the gym as "Queen" Karen and "King" Jon led the
initial dance after intermission. As the couples danced to the final strains of
music they realized that they would always remember the 1952 Pigskin Prom and
the special place it would always hold in their memories of their days of MHS.
