Awards Made Banquet for Five Champions "A Unique Experience" "This is a unique experience.

Huffman's talk, fast moving and hard hitting, stressed 'both scholarship and athletics, and came after ,the presentation of the WHS athletic awards. Winners of these honors had not been announced 1 . Five District 2-A major sports championships were represented at the 'banquet, something unequaled in Wellington high school history, and probably not in the southeastern Panhandle high -school athletics. The tennis team had' won its title only Friday. The others were the Skyrocket football and boys and girls basketball teams', and the track team. (But this was not all. There was another winner that Sn an ordinary year would have held the spotlight. After three days practice and during the week of bi-dista-ict basketball playoffs, the girls volleyball team won the district titTe. Coach Don Beck then introduced the B football and bas- ketball teams and team. the golf Eight handsome trophies were presented as individual awards. The ibest all around football player trophy, given by Henard Brothers, went to Bryan Hatch, and a few minutes later Hatch again stopped! forward to receive the trophy as the most valuable track man, given by Brooks Auto.

Coach Huffman, early in his talk, toM the crowd that they must realize that one of the most important subjects is compDtitive athletics, needed more today than ever. "Today it is the school's duty to build students physically as well as mentally. Twenty years ago this wasn't true," he declared. Then he came out strong against those who would curtail high school athletics to intermural participation. There won't he any athletics without competition, he reminded, adding that competitive athletics buil'd the two qualities needed in crises, emotional stability and physical stamina. "You are privileged stu- d'ents," he told the teen-agers. "You are not the dropouts. You are the winners. You are the achievers, and I appeal to you boys and girls to help save the dropouts." Urging excellence in scholarship, Huffman recalled the day when an A on a report card was something many students were ashamed of. "That day is gone. The A student is. the popular student. They're not paying off for mediocrity any more. If you don't excell, somebody's waiting to take your place. You've got to beat somebody trying 1 to do what you're doing better than you are." The Tech coach reminded that not every student can make A's, but every student can give 110 per cent effort. "The I-Will is just as important as the IQ, You bet it is." He rounded out his speech by telling the crowd a lot of peqple have filed over their consciences pretty smooth. "Ten people doing something don't make it right; 1,000 people doing it don't make it right and 10,000 doing at don't make it right."
