Spring Shorts Poem
April and spring, at long art
they are here.
Basftxill, track, and tennis begin
r .thi time each year.
.M3:""Nin and snow from
f r. v. uatil next year.
Let's have our matches, meets
and games. The weather
will be clear.
Warm and sunshine, the weather
forecasts say.
But guess what always Happens
when it comes Saturday!
The baseball and track fields are
sloshing wet, and muddy.
Tennis courts are swimming
pools, and the weather's
strictly "Muddy."
It rained last night, today it's
freezing.
All week was fine, but now the
cold s increasing.
Don't be surprised if someday
you may hear
The weather man has disap
peared for predicting, "To
morrow t'will be clear!"

Tennis Players'
Tried by Various Troubles
Ah, summer is well on its way
now, and with it the urge to get
the old tennis racket down and
take out for the nearest tennis
court comes back.
You leave in plenty of time so
that you will get there ahead of
everybody else. But what's this?
When you arrive you find that
about a million other kids and
I their dogs got there first, so you
wait around a couple of hours
to get the court.
Grizzly Trackmen
Take Third Place
In the first track meet of the
current season, a quadrangular
meet- with Grants Pass, Crater
High, Ashland, and Illinois Val
ley, Ashland took third place
with Crater High edging out sec
ond place and Grants Pass first.
In the field events Ashland
tied for first in the high Jump
and in the pole vault. The Bears
also took a third in the pole
vault.
In the hundred yard dash the 1
Grizzlies took third place. Ash
land also placed second in the
660.
Although . Ashland Grizzlies
did not make too good a showing
in their first meet, the Grizzlies
have good potentialities. They
are especially pointing towards
the Hayward Relays to be held
April 18 and 19 In Eugene,
where they hope to win another
trophy.
AHS Basebailers
Bounced Twice ,
In the first two games of the
season the Grizzly baseball
club, although taking two sound
lickings, has shown promise for
the warm-weather sport of the
season.
After only three practices the
Bears went to Grants Pass and
were dumped 10-3 by the Cave
men, who had already played a
couple of ball games. A few days
later they played Crater High
and were trampled 13-4
The Eagle Point basebailers
squeezed by the Grizzlies 9-8 in
an extra inning game on the
Pointers' field April 11. Minus
ace outfielder Wayne Johnson.
their hardest hitter, the Bears
lacked the punch to grasp the
game.
Jim James led the Bears at
the plate with 2 for 3, and Walt
McCoy led 2 for 4 against three
Eagle pitchers. -

Tempers
Finally you and your partner
get out on the court. By this
time the afternoon is nearly
gone. You rally for a little
while, and, just as you get ready
to serve, some little children on
roller skates invade the courts
Now you have to play with them
skating on the court, because
they will take your balls or tell
their mamas if you try to put
them off by force.
Then come the dogs, and they
make off with a few of your
Drize balls. Oh. well, who cares
halls onlv cost about a buck i
apiece.
Despite all these difficulties
your partner finally manages to
deliver you a blazing fast ball
and you lay into it with all your
might. Boingg! ! Now no strings,
and it costs $5 to get the racket
restrung.
By the time you get the
money for new balls and re
stringing the racket, autumn is
here and there isn't any chance
to play then because you have
to go to school.
GAA Holds
Initiation

tion held their initiation Thurs

From here they were sent on a
scavenger hunt, to bring back
such items as a policeman's sig
nature and some popcorn from
the Varsity.
If you were downtown about
7:00 you must have seen Pauline
Davis dressed in a 14-inch skirt
and a baby bonnet; Sara Jami
son in a gunny sack skirt; Pat
Dean in her high heels and bob
bie socks, and many other
strangely dressed girls.
