As we entered the auditorium last September on the first
day of school, we rather regretted leaving behind us those lazy
summer days of vacation with the swimming, fishing, picnics,
trips, etc. But at the same time we were quite eager to meet
new friends, renew acquaintances and take part in the mary
school activities that would be offered during the year. .
As usual one of the firstaactivities of the school year
was the sale of activity tickets. For one dollar the purchaser
was admitted to all school events suchoas dances, athletic
events, etc. 'Ihis also included the monthly issues of Who's
who, our school paper. About five hundred and fifty activity
tickets were sold. '
Boy's Sports '
THCKTIL' FOOTBALL. 'Ihe tackle football program was changed
this year, giving more boys an opportunity to participate. The
season was divided into two six-week periods. During each
period the squads were divided into two teams the Blue and
the Gold , playing a night gameunder the lights. Both of
these squads were coached through the entire season by Hr. Ogles
by. The W. K. boys really put forth much effort to make the
season a successful one. These boys were: Marlin l4cNicho1s,
Jerry Yeric, Harold Cretsinger, Gordon Hjortaas, Bill Wallace ,
Basil Nunnally, Jim Osborne, Bob Miller, Bob, James, Butch Wyers
'Ibm Gould, Dave Lunt, Harold McGee, Dick Wood, Jack Warren, Norm
Skidmore, Chuck Stevenson, Gus Korbakis, Tom Wondergem, Jim
Conklin, John Coleman, George Logan and Tom 'Ibdaro.
BASKETBALL. Once again the ninth grade W.K. basketball f
team came through with the city junior high school championship,
winning six out of their eight games. They defeated both South-
western and Southeastern three times, losing to 'Lakeview by only
one point in each of their two games. 'Ihe team's success was
due to the fine coaching of Mr. Stone. 'lhe two high scoring
stars were Butch Wyers, with ninety four points and Gordon Hjor-
taas, with eighty six points. ihey were assisted by Basil
Nunnally, Bill Wallace , Jerry Yeric, Marlin McNichols, Tom'

Higalights of the Year Kllontinuedj
The seventh and eighth grade had a good squad too. They
didn't come through with a winning record, but many of their
games were fairly close. The regular squad consisted of Scott
Orr, Brent Willson, Doug Sackett, Leroy Tisdell, Ivan Ranger,
Brick Storslee and Dick Osborne.
SWIMMING. Llthough the swimming team took third place in
the All-City swimming meet, we are exceptionally proud of them.
It was a very close scoring event all the way and we lost out
by a small margin. W. K. took eight first places to top both
Southeastern and Southwestern, but bowed out in the relays.
Southeastern was first with 113, Southwestern was second with
109, and W. K. third with 105. The swimming team was coached
by Mr. Vydareny. Some outstanding swimmers of the team wercg
Gordon Hjortaas, Alec Borden, Bill Clawson, Mickey Franklin,
Bob Morris, Mike Reed, George Manusos, and our diver, Ron Roberts.
INTRAMURAL. The intramural program, coached by Mr. Vydareny
and Mr. Stone after school , and Mr. Blackburn, at noon, was very
successful. The boys participated in a variety of sports, such
as touch football, basketball, volleyball and softball. Awards
were given to all boys that took part in the program, based on
the point system. Those with one hundred to two hundred twenty
five points received a felt letter, two hundred twenty five to
three hundred fifty points, a chenille letter, and three hun-
dred fifty points or more , a gold pin, which is the highest
GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. This year has been a busy one
for girls who participated in the GAA activities. First on the 5
agenda was volleyball. There was a ninth grade team and a seventh
and eighth grade team combined. 'Ihe Playday was- held in W.K.'s
gymnasium and many girls from the junior high schools took part.
Basketball came later in the season and again teams were
chosen to represent W. K. The girls went over to Southeastern
for their Playday and had loads of fun with the other girls.
In the spring time softball and swimming dominated the scene
for the girls' sports. All of the sports taught girls fair
