SPORTS SECTION Basketball Boys Many eyes in the High School basketball circles turned toward last year's class B champions, B. Y. High, as they started their intramural basketball November 1. B. Y. High enjoys the distinction of having five lettermen back from their champion team of last year. This seems to be ample material for coach Rex Olson and assistant coach Owen Dixon to form another team which should, with lots of hard work, be something to worry about in the state tourney this year. Last years lettermen who are back include: Harold ChristenKent sen, Norm Christiansen, Broadhead, Don McIntosh, and Jae Ballif. These five boys should make the nucleus of a basketball team which B. Y. High will cheer for in the state tournament again this year. You did it before, guys! You can do it again! Sportshort Meet the men who make the teams. Owen (Jokey) Dixon Owen hag a record that is hard to beat. He was bom in Provo and has lived here all his life. While he was in high school he was outstanding in football (playing quarterback), baseball and basketball. When he went to college at B.Y.U. he again was outstanding in football (guard). He made a letter in track . In 1941 he was made Captain of the college team and made all conference and in 1946 made all conference He started again. teaching at B.Y. last year. Thats just one. Here is another oustanding record. Rex Olsen Rex was born in Salt Lake and ttended Granite High. While he was there he was oustanding on the football team. He played Tailback (LH). He was also on the school baseball team (short stop) and basketball team. After he came to the B. Y. U. he played on the football (quarterback) and baseball teams. Last year he was given the title of the 4th best passer in the nation. He was offered a contract by the Baltimore Colts. Last summer he spent six weeks working out with the Baltimore Colts.

Good luck, everybody! 19-- 6. 0. s. Elections Basketball, T9 Style 2, the people of the United States voted for the president of our nation. Who he was and what his own opinions are and the mistakes that he has made have for the last year (and before that, too), been covered with the dirt of gossip, jealousy, and unfaith in the way he put things over, but even after the criticism that has been poured on him and all of the degrading things done, he stood up and put on a campaign to out show any other nominee in history. His personality was put over to the people and through all of the opposition he received was not for the next best job in the U. S. like he received four years ago but for the most supreme job for proving himself the only man in our nation able to fit the job so well. It wasnt the posters, newspapers, radio programs and machines that he had to represent him, it was the president himself that gave him the election. It was proven in this election that no matter how far people with the power of money go to force in getting their candidate elected that the greatest power at all in such things is our DEMOCRACY. In nine years nearly everyone in the school will be voting, if we as just one group in the nation can prove to our world that we know the true meaning of democracy we will still be the leading nation of the world. This is the time of the year when the name Wildcats becomes all over the state, for their smooth type of basketball. With last years class B championship behind them and a new tournament this year our boys have really got to hustle to put another trophy in the case. This year the team will be known as Olsens boys although last year they gained famed as Crowtons boys because Rex Olsen is replacing one of the bestNftgh school coaches in the state, Dave Crowton. Dave is now with the University. Rex will have five boys back, two of these are all staters. Besides these he will have some very promising prospects that were on last years sophomore team or some of them that were not here last year. The quintet back from last year is: Harold Christensen, Norm Christiansen, Jae Ballif, Don McIntosh and Kent Broadhead. Harold and Norm were both all state, Harold being the outstanding player of the On November Best Things Come in well-know- n tournament. Deer (?) Hunting the male population around town from October 16 to 26, you are soon going to find out. The truth of the matter is that everybody, except Wayne Crosby, went deer hunting. Everybody at Y High I mean. You can make up your mind d or as to whether it was However, this article has to deal with the ones who had four legs. On Friday, the 15, those boys who did manage to get themselves to school didnt come to study, they came merely to pass the time away. When Saturday morning finally arrived all the boys were up and ready to go at 2 oclock. (Theyd do it for the DEER, but they wouldnt do it for the DEAR.) Well, anyway, they went up to the hills to forget all about life in general, and the only thing they had for company was a gun and a few squirrels. After spending a couple of freezing nights, and shooting a couple of shells they returned home, a few of them sad, and lonesome, some wishing it was not over, others happy because they got their deer. Of course, Kenneth Collard, Kent Broadhead, and El Roy Nelson, who are all famous for catching dear oops, I mean deer, share honors for coming back with one apiece. June and Gene Hanson felt brotherly for a change and went together. Gene played hog though, by bringing back two, while June only got one. Then there wras Condon Avery. He brought back quite a tall tale with him. It seems that both he and his father shot at the same time. (You know that old line.) Well, anyway, they got it. Condon thought he would be smart and go back again, so Saturday (October 23) they packed up and went back. It doesnt pay to be a PIG does it Con ? Well, next year we wish those boys who didnt get their deer better luck, and for those who did get theirs well next year have fun and bring back two. two-legge- Little Packages Well its over again (football season that is). B.Y. High won and lost many games that we expected to win (of course, we expected to win them all). The ones we lost are expected to be justified next year. We are proud to have such a fine and outstanding group of boys out of such a small school. We are losing some of our team next year because of graduation. (Lets keep them back.) Among those to graduate are: Grant Brockbank, center; Fred Johnson, guard; Phil Morgan, Guard; DeVere Brough, tackle; Don McIntosh, end; Condon Avery, end; Paul Salisbury, left half; Jae Bal-liand Lynn Rogerson, fullbacks; Jim Jones, end; ElRoy Nelson, end; Harold Christensen, quarterback; and Norm Christiansen, left half. Those who are left and those who will enter can carry on the work which those mighty seniors started. f, Coming Assemblies 19 First Jr. High Assembly. Jr. High Class Officers are in charge of it.

The BY High Wildcats lost their closing battle at Springville Friday, Oct. 29, when the Red Devils defeated them 12-- in an afternoon game at 2:30, and put BY High in a tie for fourth place with Spanish Fork and American Fork. The Wildcats played a winning game all the way, but were defeated when the Devils completed a pass and ran 60 yards for a touchdown. Jae Ballif plunged over for the Wildcats six points after Norm Christiansen broke away and took the ball almost to the goal line. the extra placed-kickeBallif point. The Red Devils scored their first touchdown just before the first half ended and then fumbled when they attempted to buck the line for the extra point. The Wildcats made their touchdown in the third period and also the extra point, in favor which made the score of the Wildcats. In the last quarter the Devils completed the pass and made the touchdown to bring the score 12-Again they attempted to buck the line for the extra point, but failed. The Wildcats look forward to a very successful basketball season. 7 d 7-- 6 7. If anyone has been wondering why there was a slight decrease in four-legge- d. Wildcats Lost Last and Tie For Fourth Class Activities The class rooms have really been buzzing this year with special acti- vities. The problems of Democracy class have been a very busy example. On November 2, the class went to the several district polling places to watch the actual voting take place. The ninth grade Core class also visited these places the same day. They learned much that should be of help to them in the near future. Another special activity of the P.D. class was a visit from Dean E. Roberts, a student at the University. He isnt just an ordinary student, he is rather a celebrity because he was secretary of the senate in Washington, D. C., from 1939 to 1942. In 1942 he joined the marines and went back again to Washington from 1946 to 1947, and in 1947 he came to the B.Y.U. to attend school. When he graduates from the Y he will go back to Washington to take up his job once more. He is the head of the National Student Opinion in the area, and in addition he writes Our World for the Universe. He also writes for 500 other papers. Mr. Roberts talk was partly on the rules and regulations of vot- 10-m- And in This Corner B. Y. High Holds Voting Poll It seems that B. Y. High is really doing things up in a big way. On October 27, the P.D. class sponsored a mock election. Mr. Glen Ovard, the training teacher, was in charge of it. It seems the majority of the students want all Republicans. When the public elections took place, B. Y. was proven half right and half rong. The folview lowing is a complete ing. He also gave a birds-ey- e of the of Washington, D.
