Every evening, rain or shine, these boys could be fou nd running laps around the football field, taking exercises, practicing for events, and improving their techniques. It has often been stated that if a boy is a good track man, he will be good in almost any sport. The Wildcats sent one man to state this year. Bill Dickey placed fourth in the 440. His time, 50. 5, was within a second of the state record, 49. 7. Bill, along with six other lettermen, will return next year. They are Larry Peckham, Jim Reddick, Jerry Webster, Frank Dorsey, Marion Deffenbaugh, and Earl Steinle. ycheciute Derby March 29 Fredonia April 10 Clearwater April 16-17 K. U.

Almost as many seniors as freshmen wandered into the wrong class room and stared in bewilderment at the persons who were supposed to be there. Even though our club activities, programs, games, etc. made our schedule full, we somehow managed to get most of our lessons. The Journalism Class worked long hours getting our Annual ready for us. There was always the inevitable rush to meet a deadline. It was really bedlam when pictures or a whole page turned up missing at the last moment . nnuai S tuff arid Gary Mur- i preparing the ■iint deadline. Compliments of DR. AND MRS. LESLIE H. COBB BOARD OF EDUCATION: George Gosney, Jennings Reusser, W. D. Munson, and Frank Carson. Atclminidtra lion Looking back over the past school years I noticed for the first time how difficult it must be to organize and run a school like Mulvane High. The administration has been busy the whole year trying to keep school going smoothly in the old building, and making plans for the coming year in the new building. Mr. Munson and the Board of Education has been working with the contractors, checking over plans, and overseeing the beginning of the new high school. Mr. Cook has handled the difficult job of working with students and faculty and of keeping order for the year. Members of the faculty have kept more than busy sponsoring clubs, and riding pep club buses to ball games, as well as teaching classes all day. We ' ve been difficult to handle at times and as all teen agers do, we ' ve felt terribly abused when forced to comply with school rules and regulations. Now that the school year is drawing to an end- -and graduation is in sight, we begir to realize that without these rules our school would not have been one to be proud of. School spirit and school pride conne from cooperating and working to- gether for a common goal.

Homecoming dance sponsored by the Student Council. One of the outstanding projects of the Student Council was the Fresh- man Initiation. I remember the day we seniors welcomed all the fresh- men to M. H, S. The Homecoming Dance in honor of the Football Queen, Lucille Laughary was such fun. The dance, which was after the game, was rather hard on the football boys. They were so tired they could hardly walk- -let alone dance! The Alumni was invited to the dance. The Student Council also sponsored all the Lyceum nunbers.

There was the night Kayettes had the concession stand at the Belle Plaine football game. It was a cool night so the coffee and hot dogs really went. I also remember the fun the Kay- ettes and Hi-Y had getting decorations and things ready for the Christmas Formal Dance. The only thing in Kayettes that was like school work was the Kayettes ' test which included memorizing the pledge and the declaration of privileges Courtesy of ROBINSUN ' S GROCERY Kayette concession stand.

The Hi-Y helped the Kayettes sponsor the dance. Hi-Y had many projects this year. The boys traveled to Plainview to help select congressmen for Boys State. They also purchased materials for ping-pong tables which were then built for noon hour recreation. Another project of Hi-Y that gave many basketball spectators more comfort at the games, were the canvas seats which the boys rented to them. . .

V,ea ' x v6 lO - At Last! We are going to have an active Pep Squad to perform at games, like other schools! We ' ve long admired other schools with their attractive uniforms and intri- cate drill work at games. Our Drill Squad, a newly formed organization, is a select group of girls chosen from the regular Pep Club. Their purpose is to help keep school spirits high and perform functions at ball games during half time. The Squad has had little time to practice or perform since it was formed late in the season, but we are looking forward to the performances of this Squad in the future and we feel that it will be an active group in years to come.

They landed in the winner ' s column three times, tied twice, and lost four. When school chums were dismissed at 3:30 and sat around in drug- stores sipping cokes, the football boys had just started their long, tedi- ous practice. Many times it was dark before all the baskets were in and the cage door was locked. Supported by a loyal pep section and many townspeople, Mulvane played each game with all their heart, dear diary, and never forgot the good sportsmanship that goes with every Wildcat game. . .

As th e days ran into weeks the process of " getting in shape " and " learning techniques " converted to the more pleasant team scrimmage. Finally, after three weeks of hard work the big day arrived -December 4- the first game of the season! The team was feeling good, and the Coach, of course, was on edge and nervous. Day after day they practiced hard, working together, striv- ing to build a better team. January IZ, 1954 and again January 15, the Wildcats met their only defeats of the playing season at the hands of Belle Plaine and Oxford. After that the work became harder and longer and in time it seemed to pay off. Mulvane managed to defeat the Augusta teami twice for the first time in many years. Then they met Leon on February 5 and after taking an easy victory- -became Sumwick League Champions for the second Consecutive season. The entire season proved to be exciting and profitable for the " Fighting Wildcats of the 1953-1954 Season. " BACK ROW: Coach J. Jackson, B. Smith, D. Shaw, J. Black, R. Howard, W. Danley.

" They all rushed to the door and looked out across the gym. There he was! Mr. Goodwin, that is. This time he had on his bright red tie which the boys knew usually meant sure victory. The " B " boys had a tough time this season winning only about 50% of their games. There is a great future for Mulvane High School when some of these hard fighting boys become the top 10 Wild- cats for M. H. S. . . . S cLuud . . .Golly, the M.H. S. Freshman team had a tough schedule this year. They started off by play- ing Belle Plaine and Derby. Just imagine boys get- ting up early enough to be at school by 7:30 a.m. But these were a group of hard working boys, so they prac- ticed early two days a week and from 1:45 p.m. until 2:45 p. m. three afternoons a week.

Of course, Josie, played by LaVonna Pitts, knew that all it took was love to straighten out Button ' s mind.
