REGIONAL CHAMPS

m The clipping reads:  A LOOSE BALL DRAWS THE ATTENTION of the players in the photo at the left as Manhattan and Salina cagers go after the bounding roundball. Fred Boone (Sandy’s underlines) and Sonny Ballard (22) are the two Indians while Larry Weis (10) is the closest Mustang to the ball.  In the photo to the right, Steve Douglas jumps amid a maze of Mustangs in a bid for two more points.  The defensive players are Ray Thome (44), Allen McCune (51) and Gary Baer (right).  Manhattan won, 65-58, to earn the Class AA regional championship.

REGIONAL TOURNAMENT at SALINA

Whooping, Hollering Indians, Shiny Trophy

Mark[s] MHS Regional Cage Victory

m

The clipping reads: As the Manhattan High School Indians won the regional tournament from Salina at Salina Friday there was every expression imaginable on the faces of the fans as seen in the photo at left above from surprise to supreme joy.  But when realization did finally catch up with them all, the shout was :Take State, Take State," in anticipation of MHS’s competing in the State Class AA tournament  here this week.  Manhattan won the right to compete for the state championship by taking the regional title — for the second year in a row.  In the photo at right, Guard Danny Kershaw (Sandy’s underline) accepts the championship trophy from W. M. Ostenberg, Salina superintendent of schools.  Kershaw, elected captain of the Indian squad at the end of the regular season for the remainder of tournament play, told the crowd Manhattan will do its best in the state meet to be a credit to the Central Kansas Leasue, "the best conference in Kansas." (Mercury staff photos by Keith Kemper)

YOU SAY IT[‘]S A LITTLE COLD OUT

M

Under the top photo, the clipping reads: WAITING FOR THE WATER — Take a touch of warm weather, add some bright sunshine and you stir up swimming desires.  The trio above has donned their suits to be in the spirit of sun-loving but they register some impatience that there’s no water in the pool yet.  Sitting poolside, left to right, are Sandra Drown, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy E. Drown, 1000 Michael Road; Sue Greiveldinger, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Greiveldinger, route 1; and Janice Brooks, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Brooks, 330 Bertrand.  All three are students at Manhattan High School.  (Mercury staff photo by Keith Kemper.)
