Six seniors of the Mount Ayr Community high school were awarded scholarships during the senior class day program on
May 23. They were Garry WION, Barbara BARKER, Ann MILLER, Mary Ellen CORLL, Betty BRAND and Connie SANDAGE
Garry WION placed second in the discus throw at the annual Nebraska Junior A.A.U. track meet held Memorial Day at
Cozad, NE. Garry threw the discus 150 feet, six and one/half inches, which exceeded the record by 11 inches. With
his best throw of the season, Garry realized his ambition to exceed 150 feet. As a member of the Southwest Iowa
Track Club, Garry participated in the junior division, which was for boys under 18 years of age.
On Tuesday of last week the outlying schools of the Mount Ayr Community school district held a conference track
meet on the local track. The event was sponsored by Chet ROED, coach of the Raiders, and Dale GEISE, physical
education instructor. The Maloy Junior High, with 42 points, won the conference championship by taking three places
in the last event - the pole vault.
