Shooting Sports With BBs Indian Boy One To Watch /n KCAC Track Meet Here BUI Burk* By BUI Burke ", The Kansas Conference" track and field meet ; will be held in Salina Friday at the Martin Stadi- ; urn oval. Top athletes of the conference will be in , action. Salina—and Kansas Wcsleyan—are fortunate " 'in playing host to the meet. Heretofore, Salina i'jias not been known as a good track town from: ,' ith^ standpoint of attendance, ,-;• But there should be enough interesting compe- ; \Ution Friday to draw a siz- •"able, crowd for .the KCAC .''event. •:• One athlete fans are espec- "• tally urged to keep an eye oh •1 Is Lloyd Elm, the outstanding !- freshman Indian runner from ••• College of Emporia, ,"; Elm, who hails from Syra',;. cuse, N. Y., runs the mile and : 4 2-mile mighty well. • Recently Emporia was in ' Salina for a track meet at Wesli. That same night •.: I traveled to Lindsborjf to attend an athletic,ban- ilquet. About five miles outside of Salina, iTubbed ;"my eyes. There was Elm running in a ditch •;• alongside the. highway. - I later learned the full story. After Elm had .finished the mile and 2-mile—which he won, of •'„ course—he told Wayne McConnell C of E coach, .to watch his track shoes. ; "Why," McConneil asked. ." "1 want to run down the highway and don't •' sant to ba bothered with them," Elm said. A few ...minutes after I spotted him, the Emporia team '• came by and picked him up. I Later, at Emporia, Mac decided to test Elm's J '. endurance. So he put Elm in his car and drove 1 : out six miles from town. He told his distance ! ace to get back as quickly as possible. 1 Mac then returned to school and was busy [ about his work. Forty-five minutes later there i was Elm, back on the track, looking as fresh as ! " when he started. | So that's why I suggest taking in (he meet Friday afternoon asd keeping a special lookout for Elm. He's interesting to watch. Incidentally. College of Emporia will be favor. ed to win the meet * *• * In recent days the Kansas State basketball scliedulo for 1954-55 was announced and it is an interesting one. Besides the Big Seven schedule, the K-Statc Wildcats meet Noire Same, Indiana and Wash- 1 ingl.on, at home. .Season tickets—with such im• prcssive opponents will not be hard to sell and it isn't too early to begin thinking about choice seals. The first non-league game, and season's :home opener, will be with Wyoming Dec. 11. Then Washington comes to Manhattan Dec. 18. The following Tuesday Indiana will be at the fieldhouse. The Fighting Irish move in during the midst of the Big Seven schedule. The : game is slated Feb. 21, a. Monday night, which is fortunate, Many high schools and colleges play on Tuesday night in this area. But the Monday date will afford fans opportunity to see the Irish in their first appearance in the midwest—the midwest as we know it. K-State and Notre Dame have played only twice previously. The first game was in 1928 at.Notre Dame, the Irish 38-23. In 1952 the Cats met and defeated Notre Dame, 80-64, at the Spartan Basketball Clinic. This will be the rubber game. * * * :Five Delker boys—all from the same family- have completed athletic careers at Chapman high school. Delker is a familiar name to fans in this area, and to CKL followers. There's been- Delkers attending Chapman since 1914. Henry Delker, related to the brothers, captained the 1914 Chapman football team that won: the CKL. Warren was the first of five sons of Frank Delker to play for Chapman., Warren, who later attended Kansas Wesleyan, is now in the Air Force j in Westover Field, Mass. j Six-foot, eight-inch Vernon followed Warren. He j lives in Chapman and farms southeast of .town. Third was Les Delker, another who attended ! Kansas Wesleyan. Les now lives near Salina ' where he farms. • . i After the three boys came four girls. They i helped the athletic picture with cheers from the sidelines. Then came Jim Delker. He was one of the greats of the Delker. family. He led the Irish past Sacred Heart in the finals of the regional two years ago, also to a victory over Salina high school, and in the Class A state tournament. He also was named to the Class A all-state team. . In track he set a new CKt record with a leap of 5 feet, 1 inch, and was awarded a track ! There will scholarship to Kansas State. . j consisting of This past season came Ted Delker, the last of the brothers. He scored an average of 10 points a game during the cage season and played end on 'ho Irish football squad. • It may be many years before another Delker is carried in the box scores at Chapman. But lans won't forget the famed brothers for a long, long time.
