FOOTBALL SEPTEMBER l2 RAIDERS SCORE 25-0 WIN OVER NEKOOSA A non-conference tussle, originally scheduled for Friday night but postponed to Satur- day evening because of a heavy downpour, attracted one of the largest crowds in Nekoosa's football history. The crowd was estimated at well over 2,000 fans for our first game of the season. Good blocking and an alert, hard charging line gave Rapids domination of the play. The Red Raiders halfback, Mike Johnson, circled left end on a reverse play for Rapids first touchdown. Another added in the third and two more in the last quarter assured the "Man- dersmen" of the game. Don Walrath and Harold Coyer stood out in a stubborn defense. Being that Wisconsin Rapids was champion of the Wisconsin Valley Conference, it is inter- esting to note that Rapids lead only 6-0 at' the half of this game. SEPTEMBER 19 MOSINEE EDGES NEKOOSA 7-6 Nekoosa fans and members of the "Pep Club" traveled to Mosinee to see this close- ly matched game, which was played in the afternoon with the temperature about 900. Fem- ling ran 77 yards, on a delayed reverse play, for a touchdown, but Lancour's extra point hit the crossbar. After holding us for three downs we were forced to kick. They returned our punt for a touchdown and made the extra point. Although we had gained more yard- age and made more first downs, it seems as though luck favored Mosinee. "Rock" Walrath and Coyer were co-captains. SEPTEMBER 26 NEKOOSA OUTSHINES RIPON I2-7 Nekoosa rang up its first football win of the season, when our boys defeated Ripon in a hard fought, well-played game on Ripon's field.

We were out-weighed considerably by the Spartans, but certainly not outfought. Sparta had the strongest line attack that the team has played against this season. Our passing attack was very effective iust as it was throughout the season. Six pass completions out of eleven attempts were the main factors in both of our touchdowns. Norman Femling converted both extra points. Don Walrath and Harold Coyer were co-captains. OCTOBER 31 TIGERS NIP NEKOOSA IN HOMECOMING TILT 12-7 The Marshfield High school gridders, due to the aerial work of Charles Specht, edged out a I2-7 victory over a stubborn Nekoosa eleven. Buehler stood out on offense while Frisch and Walrath took charge of the defense. In the first quarter, Nekoosa drove to within I8 yards of the goal, but lost the ball on downs as the Tiger defense stiffened. After a pass interception by Duane Hein, Marshfield put in a sustained drive from their twenty to net six points. A similar drive a short time later gave Marshfield a I2-O lead. In the closing seconds of the second quarter Frisch clipped a pass to Buehler and he thrilled the fine homecoming crowd by scampering seventy yards for a goal. Femling's extra point was successful. The second half was full of action but neither team could push the ball over that white line, so the score stood at I2-7 with us on the narrow end. The Tigers had IO first downs while the Papermakers earned 8. Nekoosa enioyed a fairly successful campaign this year with 3 wins, 4 losses and one tie.

GIRLS SPORTS Progress is being made on recreation interests for A. H. S. girls. Many opinions promoted the kinds of recreation that are most desirable. Most of these desired recreations involve strenuous physical exercise. The first step undertaken was the organization of a G.A.A. On March 9, a meeting was held in which officers were elected and it was decided by a majority to revise the old G.A.A. Constitution which is form read and voted as acceptable. Officers are as follows: President .. Beatrice Zombkowski Secretary .. .. Mary Lou Blackburn Vice-President . .. Marie Martinson Treasurer .. .. Joan Werner The second important episode in girls activities was the opening games of basketball, stacking up thrilling scores. In short, girls basketball proved itself worthwhile, in more ways than one. April 21, the G.A.A. sponsored a concert by the Girls' Glee Club of Central State Teachers College.
