HAIL THE 1955 CKL CHAMPIONS

Written beneath the picture is the following: CHAMPIONS OF THE CKL are the Manhattan Indians who lashed Salina, 41 – 13, here Friday night for the honor.  As the gun sounded climaxing the struggle, members of the Manhattan team swarmed over Coach Ed Dissinger and carried him from the field on their shoulders.  That’s Dissinger in the picture to the left, looking anything but like a coach who has just seen his team wrap up the league championship.  Players who can be identified are Steve Douglas (70), Larry Rogers (68) and Bob Parrish (80).  Later on Dissinger found it possible to smile and flashed a big one, as he received congratulations from H. H. Bishop, principal of the high school here.  Complete stories on the game are on Page 10 and other action pictures are in Pages 2 and 10. (Mercury Staff photos.)
