Baseball team from Green, Kansas

Baseball team from Green, Kansas
Date: 1915
The Green, Kansas baseball team is shown in this photograph from 1915. That year, Green competed in the Clay County League, which also included teams from Wakefield, Leonardville, Oak Hill, Industry, and Clay Center. The only player identified in the photo is William Bert Hart, of Westmoreland, who is standing fourth from the right. Bert Hart was a well-known semi-professional baseball player in northern Kansas during the 1910s and early 1920s. Both a pitcher and infielder, Hart played several seasons for Green during this time period. He also played for semi-pro teams in Clay Center and Beloit, as well as the Westmoreland town team. In 1920, with Hart as its regular shortstop and occasional pitcher, the Beloit Leaguers salaried team claimed the "independent state championship of Kansas." Bert Hart spent most of his work career employed at the post office in Westmoreland; he and his wife Margaret also operated a hotel and restaurant there for several years during the 1940s.

Mercury wagon converted into a wind wagon near Green, Kansas

Mercury wagon converted into a wind wagon near Green, Kansas
Creator: Klocke, Richard R.
Date: 1961
Two photographs taken by Richard Klocke show a child's Mercury wagon converted into a wind wagon by Richard who lived on a farm near Green, Kansas. He built the wind wagon when he was eight years old. Klocke scavenged all the materials, the canvas sail was a discarded curtain from a fire at Green High School. His initials RK are visible in the lower right corner and an elephant is drawn on part of the sail. The mast was a piece of scrap lumber jammed into a Zero antifreeze can, which was obtained from the Skelly filling station in Green. The station was started by his grandfather and later operated by his uncle Elwood Branfort and his father Ivan Klocke. Richard Klocke operated the wagon by using one hand to hang onto a twine string from the corners of the sail and the other hand on the wagon tongue to steer from the rear like a rudder. The wind wagon would go up on two wheels when rounding corners. Klocke would travel west from his house on 21st Road over to the next farm where his friend Melvin Anderson lived and occasionally north on Stokes Street. He would walk home after going a long distance down one of the roads. The Mercury wagon is in the Kansas State Historical Society's museum.
