Sr. Class 4. en Zora cquire any emoried 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.

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 seniors. Z0 5. ,- v. EIQIE E .

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 MHS athletes. 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.

A busy and intent expression describes the look on the faces of the Blue M staff as they work to meet a deadline, Members of the staff from left to right are, Stewart, Bishop, Shipp, Skiver and Funk. Standing is Mr. Grimes, instructor and advisor. 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 produced. Mentor reporters working to get their stories in on time are, from eft to right, Fryer, Reid, Mackintosh, DeCrraff, Frey, Burtis and Todd. 1 Qin Mcfure Since these journalism students are smiling, it proves that this picture was taken at the beginning of the year --on. :mb " P .L E.

Standing, Grimes, King, Terrill and Rogers. At the time of the Blue M election, the Mentor staff was also elected. Dick Haines was voted to carry the big job of editor with Bill Bryson being chosen as his assistant. Ann Glover was chosen as business manager and Barbara Sondergard her assistant. Sports editor went to David Pfuetze and Donna King was given charge of circulation. Ellen Terrill was selected as feature editor and Donna Rogers third page editor. Wanetta Funk designed the new nameplate used. Although the printing boys are not in journalism, they are really the ones that put out the paper, so to them should go a lot of the credit for a good paper. With these able people to head publication, the Mentor turned in a very successful year. Another election of Mentor staff members was held the second semester too late to be covered when this copy was written. Examining a press is part of the crew that prints our Mentor.

Donna Rogers, a senior, was a twirler this year for her first time. Agnes Parsons, a junior, was the other new twirler this year. Paula Hannagan, ajunior, has been a twirler for two years.

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.

This is a big help when they start playing again with so many experienced players They have added many a mellow note to the musical programs. They were entered in the district and state contest. They had to be early birds on Thursday morning at 7:30, since this was the only time they could get together to practice.

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. This brass sextet is composed of a trombone, two trumpets, a French horn, a tuba, and a baritone.

It has proved very successful in its first year. They went to Emporia for an exchange assembly and to Highland Park for another exchange assembly. It has also been very popular in our school, appearing on several programs throughout the year.

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 quality. irgm, gba 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.

Pat Lutz was the accompanist, For underclassmen it will only mean anticipation of another year, but to seniors it is saying "goodbye" to one of the best loved parts of Manhattan High School. 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. 70!kxecl gndem A The Mixed Ensemble, this year, was composed of fourteen members. In traditional style they are gathered around a table, specializing mainly in madrigal and folk type songs, Throughout the year they have been an outstand- ing group, providing programs for civic and service clubs.

Here the Orchestra is shown at the performance. This program combined the orchestra, band, treble clef, girls' glee club, boys' glee club, and the robed choir. lt was an impressive program including both the novelty and religious numbers. The audience vastly enjoyed all performers and responded to show their appreciation. The program ranged from the seriousness of "Jesu Bambina" sung by the girls to "Winter Wonderland" by the band. The traditional "Night Before Christmas" by the choir was enjoyed by the audience. Of course behind all such organizations are directors who work for weeks on such a program. These two men have made our departrnent build up. They are Mr. Norvell, director of instrumental music and Mr. Fly, director of vocal music. 0 ' Qcfef In addition to singing in various programs in school all year, the Boy's Octet found themselves in demand to sing for many service clubs and other outside organizations.

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 Brooks, Corresponding Secretary, Ann Glover, Treasurer, Mary Lee Durlandg Bob Haines, Leland Reitz, Joe Holbert, Marlene Young, and the sponsor Mr. Swaim. Counting ballots at the Pigskin Prom are Stewart, Shipp, Swaim, Brooks, and Fellows.

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. K- .Syrian was 45 Jones 2 5 B-SQUAD.

They smacked the Chapman Irish before suffering their first loss at the hands of Junction City. 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 defeat. 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. SEASON'S RECORD 13 Manhattan Wamego Manhattan Wamego Manhattan Chapman Manhattan Junction City Manhattan Clay Center Manhattan Topeka Manhattan Abilene 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. 53 l , LARRY KELLY Senior Fullback RODDY LONG Junior Fullback RUSSELL BRADLEY Senior Guard DAVID SILVA Senior Halfback Jlmfbaf. oaffermen L P' rf P r' 'f vv-17 Ihlshaws 'f 'W -4 7 0 'J n lv ' ' 6 - ' is 6 - X l Yi as H BOB HARTLEY Senior Tackle RONALD GIER Senior Tackle DALE HODGSON Senior Guard JONATHAN WALKER Senior Tackle EVERETT IACOBSON Senior Halfback BILL CUMMINS Junior Fullback Q GARY WILSON Senior Guard RALPH BALL Senior Halfback 54 ELDON 'JOHNSON Senior Guard LC.

Manhattan 6 Lawrence 9 An extra point and a blocked punt were the difference between defeat and a tie game as the Lawrence Lions, state champions, edged past the Indians in the season opener at Lawrence 9-6. Coach Dissinger gave strong warning to CKL opposition that Manhattan wou d have to be reckoned with again this campaign. The Brave's lone tally came on a 53 yard pass play from Les Brown to Roddy Long. Charlie McCue, Lawrence's all- state fullback led the Lions in their scoring march. Manhattan 9 Marysville 0 Battling for the first time in two years on Griffith Field turf, the Indians scored on a first quarter touchdown pass from Harry Knox to Francis Darling and went on to shut out the Marysville Bulldogs 9- 0. Eldon Johnson brought the Brave's final two points when he pulled down the Marysville quarterback in the end zone. Manhattan 13 Chapman O With Larry Kelly galloping 61 yards on the first play from scrimmage, the Man- hattan Indians raced to an early 13-O lead and then held the Chapman Irish scoreless as the Manhattanites won their league opener on foreign territory. Doc Hanks went five yards for the second Brave touchdown three plays deep in the second period. The Indian defensive platoon played exceptional ball as the Irish were unable to penetrate beyond the Manhattan 20. Manhattan 13 Junction City 19 Playing scoreless football for over three quarters, the Manhattan Indians finally broke the scoring ice in the final six minutes to push across two touchdowns only to fall short of the Junction City Ja s 13-19. The Jays tallied three times in tiie initial half and then held off a determined Indian offense sparked by Larry Kell and Harry Knox's markers. Leonard Sueller fell on two Junction fumbles to pace the defensive platoon. Manhattan 27 Clay Center 19 The Manhattan Indians trailed the Clay Center Tigers for three periods and then broke loose to defeat the upset-minded Tigers 27-19 for their second league jkfee l0l90ll2l'lt5 .NUM asjcoredefid triumph. The Tigers built an early 13-0 lead only to have it erased by a determined tribe of Indians. Kelly, Brown and Hanks played sterling offensive ball and Ralph Ball turned in a fine performance on defense. Manhattan 13 Topeka 7 An underrated Manhattan eleven out- played a favored Topeka Trojan squad and went on to defeat them 13-7. Bill Cummins, junior fullback, led the backfield in rushing as he racked up 67 yards. Jon 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. Manhattan 27 Abilene 7 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 up a 21-o half time lead. Manhattan 13 McPherson 6 Sparked by halfback Les Brown, the Manhattan Indians jumped into the CKL lead with but a single game to play as they edged a hard fighting McPherson Bullpup eleven. Brown scored both Indian counters to pace the Tribe to a 13-6 victory. The underdog Bullpups made a battling contest of it as they racked up 205 yards rushing to 225 for the Indians. Manhattan 35 Salina 0 Two stron lines battled against each other for neariy two periods before the Manhattan Indians unleashed a blistering passing attack to take a 14-0 lead and then o on to defeat the Salina Mustangs 35.-0. ihe victory brought Manhattan their first undisputed CKL championship in e1g,ht D years. With Knox and Ball passing rilliant ly and Darling receiving them with uncanny precision, the win was nearly anticlimactic as the flawless Indians rampaged after a ' hard-fought season.

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- etition. 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.

RALPH BALL First Letter xyl'lJ6ll'l6 On RGC! Coach Bob Boles' Indian hoopsters were tied for first place in the CKL for seventeen days before the Salina Maroons, who for the past 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 CKL standings. 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.

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 their second straight CKL win at home, Larry Kelly had the range as he popped in I7 points in leading the home standing Indian's scoring. Manhattan 58 McPherson 53 Manhattan 50 McPherson 66 Manhattan and McPherson split their set as the Indians dropped the Bullpups at MHS 58-53 while the Bullpups got revenge at McPherson as they drubbed the Braves 66-50, 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 a CKL scoring mark in tallying 35 as the southerners rolled to an easy 66-50 win, Ralph Ball paced the Braves' scoring with a comparatively few 14. Manhattan 53 Abilene 55 Manhattan 67 Abilene 55 Larry Kelly proved to be a full fledged Cowboy scalper as he poured in 28 and I7 points on two occasions against the Abilene quintet. The Cowboys 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, Manhattan 54 Marysville 53 Manhattan 47 Lawrence 44 A last minute free throw by Bob Hartley gave the Indians a thrilling 54-53 verdict over the Marysville Bulldogs in the Tribe's first victory of the season. Les Brown and Larry Kelly spearheaded the Manhattan attack with twelve points each. Clint Shepherd ripped the nets for fifteen to lead the Marysville scorers. Sparked by Frank Darling's sixteen points, the Indians grabbed a 29-19 half time lead and coasted to a 47-44 win over the Lawrence Lions. The big gun for the Lions was Black, their all-state football center, Neither team was particularly warm as the Indians hit for only 3096 on their field goal attempts and the Lions managed a frigid 233 Manhattan 50 Highland Park 61 Manhattan 61 Highland Park 67 The Highland Park Scotties, behind Eddie Delk's outbursts of 2Q and 2I points defeated the Manhattan Indians twice by scores of 61-50 and 67-61, 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, The Indians held an early 20-I2 lead but the hot Scots went ahead at the first quarter mark 23-22 and led the rest of the way.

Ralph Ball hit eight for the losers. A I6-3 first quarter advantage was the main factor in the Redskin win. Don Bafus was the big gun for the Railers as he swished the nets for 24 points to spearhead the Newton quintet to a 64-36 victory in a coaches' clinic contest. Larry Kelly dropped in eight free throws and a field goal for ten points to lead the Indian cause. The Braves hit only I6 of 54 free throw attempts for a frigid 305. Manhattan 51 Salina 63 Manhattan 76 Salina 82 The perennial CKL champions, the Salina Maroons, maintained their complete domination over the Indians again as they downed the Tribe twice, although they had to fight all the way to gain the pair of victories, In the Indians' first league road contest they bowed to the Mustangs at Salina 51-63 as Bruce Wenger hit 27 for the victors. Ralph Ball, diminutive 5'7" guard, led the Indians with 13, The Mustangs came into MHS with 27 consecutive CKL wins over the Indians and made it 28 with an 82-76 triumph. The magic number for the night was 23 as Bob Hartley led the scoring for Manhattan with that number while Wenger and Hurst each poured in 23 for the visitors. The Maroons hit a torrid 5096 of their field goal tries. Manhattan 55 Junction City 56 Manhattan 66 Junction City 68 Free throwitis dropped the Indians twice as the Junction City Blue Jays edged the Tribe 56-55 and 68- 66. In both contests the Braves outscored the Jays in the Field goal department but fell short at the free throw line. At Junction City, the Bolesmen could manage to svvish only eleven of thirty attempts at the charity line. The Jays dropped in I7 of 23 free throws. Teddy Boone was the leading scorer for the victorious Blue Jays in their 56-55 win with I5 while Darl- ing dunked I4 for the losers. In the second game Boone and Darling were again the big guns in the scoring attacks as the Blue Jays rallied in the third period to overtake a seven point Manhattan halftime lead.
