Cardinal hoopsters from 1942

There's nothing quite as fun as old photographs.  They spur lots of memories and sometimes encourage us to reflect on the "good old days."  This photo, however, was taken more than 70 years ago during a time that was not so wonderful -- shortly after the outbreak of World War II. The only person we've identified is the coach at the far left -- E. L. McEwing.  We think this may be the Chadron High School "Cardinals" varsity basketball team, but we're not certain.  It could be the Junior Varsity.  Some of these folks are no longer with us, but we suspect there are still a few people around who can identify them.  Thanks to Richard McEwing for sharing this photo.  You'll find a higher resolution image of this photo in our Chadron Schools gallery.  And learn more about E. L. McEwing and other teachers and administrators in our Chadron Teachers gallery.
