To Miss Hartwell who holds the distinction of having taught twenty-one years in A. H. S.. a record held by no other teacher in Alliance, we dedicate this
Miss Hartwell has taught pupils who are now all over the world. She has always shown her willingness and efficiency in helping others both in the classroom and elsewhere.
And so it is with pleasure that we recognize her in this way.FACULTyMR. PARTRIDGE
Mr. Partridge as Superintendent of Schools has charge of all the schools in Alliance. Proof of his fine work can be seen both from the economic standpoint and from the scholastic records of the students. The Alliance school system is fortunate in having a superintendent who sees the possibilities of a greater development in our schools.
Every school must be well supervised. The principal has the task of mixing just the right amount of discipline, freedom and fun into a well-regulated school-life. Mr. Nelson has done all of this and more in making our school one of which we can be proud.MRS. VERA BAYER

••Twixteen.” a comedy in three acts was presented by the Junior Class, December 6th and 7th.
Rodney Wells, Jr., portrayed by Freddie Cutts, has discovered that the only way to get Doris Mansfield, characterized by Frances Copsey. is large biceps and notes delivered the “hard way.”
Pete Thompson, played by Roger Lewis, helps every thing out by getting these notes to Gwendolyn Todd, portrayed by Pat Long.
Dave Underwood filled the role of Specks Howard, whose grave dignity verges on the comical side.
Rod's two sisters. Elizabeth and Francie were played by Arlene O’Connell and Inez Antrim. Elizabeth is very dramatic and Francie’s only ambition is to be an author.
Mrs. Wells was played both by Beverly Falfar and Marcene Roland. She was very interested in her children’s affairs.
The final character. Mr. Wells, was brought to life by Richard Holder. He took himself very serious and was unintentionally humorous.
‘Twixteen” was directed by Miss Lewis who came to A. H. S. at the start of this year. She taught dramatics to the junior class during the first semester.

Faculty Advisor Managing Editor
The Spud, bi-weekly publication of Alliance High School, is an asset to the school. It teaches the student working on it. the fundamentals of news writing, interviewing, and column writing. Every angle of the journalism world is learned through practical application.
This issue of the Bulldog is the second one in 20 odd years. Nearly 20 students worked long and hard for four months to present this copy to you. Many students do not realize the long work required to present an annual to the student body or the many “little” jobs that are so important to a properly organized and edited annual. For the many students who did the unheralded jobs, we say “thanks.”English
RIGHT: Senior English, conducted by Mrs. Perrin, combines literature with grammar. A study of the distinguished writers is taught during the first semester but grammar and a study of the speech is taught the second semester.
BELOW: Junior speech is organized to make the pupil speech conscious. Second semester is devoted to American literature. This junior subject is conducted by Miss Quigley.
ABOVE: Composition, with special emphasis on vocabulary, learning to speak correctly, and to write by doing so. is taught in this sophomore class.
LEFT: Mrs. Bayer instructs the freshmen in a course including literature. composition, and grammar. The instructor is near the back of the room in this shot.Foreign Languages
This language found its begin-ning in A. H. S. by popular demand. The student learns how to speak and read the language under the capable direction of Miss Quigley. It is offered to juniors and seniors. Verbs, declensions and derivations occupy much of the time. This is a good subject as it may be put to good use because of our close relationships with the Spanish-American countries.
A two-year course taught by Miss Hartwell for freshmen and sopho. mores, is a study of verb declensions. form endings and sentence structure. Second year students study Caesar in the Latin translation.TYPING
Offered to juniors and seniors, this subject is taught by Miss Smith and Miss Schiebel. Beginners learn the keyboard, type letters, time tests and start office work. Second year students work on speed, office practice. legal practice and filing.
Miss Smith teaches the beginners who concentrate on form and reading ability. Miss Schiebel teaches the advanced shorthand classes. These work on speed mainly. Many Gregg Shorthand speed certificates ire given to both groups.
Miss Schiebel teaches twentieth century bookkeeping as well as personal record bookkeeping. Both are offered to seniors. In these classes, practice sets are worked which cover the steps in the bookkeping cycle.Natural Science
General Science: A ireshmen subject, taught by Mr. Johnson, enters into the ways and wherefores of man's knowledge of nature and how he controls it and light.
Biology: Mr. BinAeld teaches the sophomores to understand the complications of plant and animal life. Reproduction and structure of these are carefully studied.
Physics: Juniors continue scientific study under Mr. Johnson. In this picture Anita Atkins. Jenny Lee, Doug Hord. and Richard Holder are studying electricity.
Chemistry: Finishing a science

In addition, the Pep Club sponsored a number of delightful social events.
The formal Christmas dance, given December 8. was the highlight of the first semester. The traditional Christmas tree with colored lights softly glowing provided the decorative theme.
On March 29. the semi-formal dance was held. Here too. tradition plays its part. Each year, the Pep Club boy friend is presented at this function. In a musical setting, a “Hit-Parade” theme. Tom Morrow appeared from the folds of a huge sheet of music, as the boy friend of 1946.
The years activities culminated in the annual breakfast held at the Alliance Hotel, at which the Cheerleaders are chosen for the next

The code of Girl Reserves consists of the preceeding twelve standards which each girl does her best to live up to. The slogan is equally inspiring: Face life squarely, and And and give the best.
For the last nineteen years the Girl Reserve Club in A. H. S. has been an active organization. The Girl Reserve Club is affiliated with the Nebraska Y. W. C. A.
This club is not only local and national but also international. The governing body of the club is called the cabinet. The officers of the Senior Division are: President, Alta Colerick; Vice President. Phyllis Hoppes: Secretary. Joan Baird: Treasurer. Helen Stan-nus: Program Chairman. Ethel Berg: Publicity Chairman. Della Mae Stannus: Service Chairman. Edwina Shrader: Finance Chairman. Mary Rader; Social Chairman. Joyce Pollard; World Fellowship Chairman. Helen Murray: Music Chairman. Dixie Heidebrecht. The officers of the Junior Division are: President, Loretta Mulloy; Vice President. June Herman; Secretary. Marlys Skinner: Program Chairman. Jessie Lea Murray: Social Chairman. Fern Weinell: World Fellowship Chairman. Betty Broich; Music Chairman. Lulu Jane Peterson: Finance Chairman. Kathleen Corp; Service Chairman, Verna Wills.
For the advisory board the club has a council. It consists of fifteen leading Alliance women. The purpose of the council is to advise the club and work with them as an advisory commission. Alliance is noted for its splendid council and their work has been great toward the success of the club.
Also working with the cabinet and council are the sponsors. These elected by the Senior Division were. Miss Gladys Quigley and Miss Juanita Lang. Those elected by the Junior Division were Mrs. R. W. Andrews and Miss Vae Hoover. These women are teachers and help the girls with the club maintenance and organization.
Each week the club is given thirty minutes of school time for their meetings. The first two meetings each month are devoted to workshoos, the third to a program and the fourth to a business meeting and the fifth to a committee meeting.
The workshops are as follows; Art. Mrs. Andrews: Personal Relations. Miss Vae Hoover (Jr.) and Lilia Graham (Sr.); Courtesy. Miss Gladys Quigley: Worship. Mrs. F. J. Peterson; Music. Mrs. H. N. Young.
On the first day of school, as is the Girl Reserve tradition, the girls placed lovely bouquets and a note of welcome on the teachers’ desks. This starts the year off right by creating a friendly feeling between students and faculty. Also, at the first of school the girls act as guides and help new members of the school find their lockers and classes.
The club has had many interesting and important projects this year. One of the leading ones was serving at the Navy Mothers’ Canteen at the depot. The club also conducted the Junior Red Cross drive.
Early in October a "Get Acquainted Tea’’ was given. To this all the girls were invited and given a chance to meet each other and find out what the club means.
When the teachers had their annual convention here, the Girl Reserves were delegated to give a tea for the 500 teachers. This was a huge success and the girts received many fine compliments from those who attended.
In the summer before school starts a girl, or any number of girls, who has been elected the year before attends a Girl Reserve annual conference. This year the conference was held in Fullerton. Nebr. It was for our district Girl Reserves only. At this camp the girls learn how to supervise and manage their clubs and thev learn new ideas on how to make money and plan successful parties. The camp is a great help to all who attend.
The girls every year choose the theme for their club to live up to. This year the theme is "World Fellowship.” To carry out that theme, the girls gave a film to the whole student body on Greek War Relief. This also promoted world fellowship. A contribution was taken at the door which amounted to $13. Also for World Fellowship, the girls made a world flag which was put on the stage across from the American flag in the high school auditorium.Senior Division Girl Reserves

When the 1945-46 school year opened, the "A" Club started moving in fine shape. With Dave Barker as president and Coaches W. R. Binfield and C. J. Kubicek as our sponsors, the "A" Club showed itself to be one of the most promising clubs in A. H. S.
Ilamae Zabel was elected Football Queen by the “A” Club's members for the year 1945. Her attendants were Pat Myers and Betty Buchfinck. The Queen was formally presented by Ed Bruere, the "A” Club’s representative, at the intermission of the Kearney game. At that time, she was presented with an engraved trophy.
New members were initiated at the end of the football season. As a test, they were required to attend school for one day dressed as girls and to push baby buggies through the halls. Having passed these obligations, the following boys were pronounced members of the club: A1 Weinell, Marvin Dietrich, Alvin Wilkins, Darwin Schwaderer, Keith Tol-stedt. Tom Johnson. Kenneth Delimont, Louis Mandelberg, Jim Strong, and Jim Worden. Duane Wright and Harold Roselius lettered in basketball and will be initiated at a future date.
The year 1945 having been completed, officers for the coming year were elected. Tom Johnson was elected president; Alvin Wilkins, vice-president; Jim Worden, secretary-treasurer; and Louis Mandelberg, sergeant-at-arms. Under the able leadership of these officers, the "A” Club looks forward to a bright future.Top How—Schwaderer, Johnson, Wilkins. Tolstedt, Cooper. Bottom Row—Colerick, Wright, Hunt.

Future Farmers of America
The Future Farmers of America is the National Organization of. by. and for farm boys studying vocational agriculture in public secondary schools. High school departments of vocational agriculture provide a four-year course of systematic instruction in agriculture and farm mechanics which is taught by teachers who are agricultural college graduates and are employed on a twelve month basis. They follow up their instruction throughout the year by supervising the farming operations of their students on their home farms and ranches.
The major purposes of the Future Farmers of America are to develop agricultural leadership, cooperation, citizenship, improved agriculture, and patriotism. The national organization includes chartered State associations composed of local chapters situated only in public high schools having departments of vocational agriculture. There are four degrees of active membership—“Green Hand. ’ “Chapter Farmer.” “State Farmer.” and “American Farmer.” Advancement through these grades is based on achievement in vocational agriculture and progressive establishment in farming.
Throughout the United States, the Territory of Hawaii, and the the Island of Puerto Rico, the organization has grown rapidly in numbers of chapters and membership, and is now recognized as the largest farm boy organization in the world. National headquarters are maintained in the Agricultural Education Service of the United States Office of Education. The National Convention is held annually in the Municipal Auditorium at Kansas City. Mo., at the time of the American Royal Livestock Show.
During the past year F. F. A. boys conferred the degree of Honorary American Farmer on Hon. Claude R. Wickard. then Secretary of Agriculture, and the degree of Honorary State Farmer on the British Ambassador, the Earl of Halifax. During the past year our local chapter has conferred the Green Hand degree on 21 boys, and the Chapter Farmer degree on 13 boys. Louis Miskimen was made a State Farmer.
Some of the activities of the year were: the summer camping trip, open house for the new vocational agriculture boys, the ceremony contest. Green Hand degree ceremony. Chapter Farmer ceremony. District Eight Officers’ Training School, fire hazard survey, tractor-hayrack ride with dates, parties with the Home Economics Department girls, pest eradication contest, ice skating party, 12 basketball games. Parent-Teacher-Boy mixer, Parent-Son supper, project tour, and many others to be completed.G. W. ROSLING, Sponsor

The Alliance branch of the Hi-Y Club was first organized in the school year of 1935. This club consisted of a membership of forty-eight boys with P. W. Lamb as the sponsor. Mr. Lamb had been very active in promoting the organization in several other high schools. He now has charge of the association at Auburn, Nebraska, and assisted at the Lincoln and Jackson High Schools at Lincoln, Nebr.
The officers of the first club were Carl Young, president; Ralph Worden, vice-president; Elliott Wilson, secretary; and James Hall, treasurer.
In 1936, H. C. Nelson came to Alliance and became head of the club. Mr. Nelson continued as active sponsor up until his death in 1945. Mr. G. W. Rosling succeeded Mr. Nelson as sponsor at the beginning of the school year of 1945 and 1946.
The Hi-Y Club is a branch of the Young Men’s Christian Association, whose headquarters are at Topeka. Kansas. The purpose of the Hi-Y Club is to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community, high standards of Christian character.
This year’s officers are: Jack Wells, president; Dave Barker, vice-president; Gene Wilcox, secretary; Ray Grove, treasurer; A1 Weinell, sergeant-at-arms; and Ralph Lot-speich, program chairman.Hi-Y ’46 Sweetheart and Court

C. J. KUBICEK
With only four regulars of last year s undefeated conference champions returning to the locker rooms for workout August 23. Coach Binfield prepared to groom a new Bulldog squad into a hard-hitting well-balanced nyichine. This team was not destined to shine as did the ball club of a year ago. but the members of the squad were willing to work and sweat to produce a good workable '45 lineup and to form the nucleus of an excellent ’46. The 1946 Bulldogs had a lot of tough luck and tough breaks, but of the whole squad not one man turned in his equipment because he was ashamed to stick it out with a losing team. And that, after all. is what football really is. the learning to stick together and to work as a team. The team that wins is not what counts; it’s how the game is played that is the prime objective of all athletic competition.
Of the four regulars returning only two were left to finish the season. Gerald Eberly, rugged Bulldog end for three years moved to Pasadena. Calif., at the first of the season. Eddie Bruere, three year veteran halfback suffered a broken collarbone in the Sidney game as the result of roughness. Jack Wells. 200 pound tackle on last year’s squad stayed to finish the whole season as one of the most valuable men on the team. Dave Barker, tackle of the mighty eleven of last year, filled the center spot until Bruere was knocked from the race. Then, after two weeks grooming, he was ready for the role of fullback on the first eleven. Letterman. Graham, fast and rugged back acted as right half and signal caller. Don Hunt shifty and alert passer, filled the left half position with Dietrich. Maurice Rogers, valuable reserve back, called signals when Graham was not in the action. On the line was Howard Brungard. rough and tough end of the 1945 Bulldogs. Tom Morrow, reserve tackle and guard of last year, played and knew all four line positions ’this year. Marvin Dietrich, transfer from Hershey. Nebr.. proved a most valuable man in the Bulldog backfield. carrying most of the passing load for the locals. A1 Weinell. reserve ’44 tackle filled the berth of left tackle this year. A1 was a very valuable man on defense. Jack Martin, returned from the Merchant Marines, gave the Bulldogs a much needed hand at tackle. Other non-lettermen who were key men on the Blue and White club are: Darwin Schwaderer. tackle and guard, who played first eleven half the season; Louis Mandelberg, first string guard, the roughest man on any team for his size; and Tom Johnson. who took the place of Gerald Eberly when he moved to California. Tom caught a pass and scored against Cheyenne.
Although this year’s squad didn’t make an impressive showing as far as the wins and points were concerned, they did prove that a losing team can be a team which fights to the end. Of this the outstanding example is found in the Armistice Day game at Scotts-bluff, where the Bulldogs fought to the end despite the Bearcats 32-0 victory.MARVIN DIETRICH. Back

ALLIANCE vs. STERLING
Sterling proved that no invasion of Colorado gridiron soil would be taken lightly as they passed their way to a 13-0 victory over the Alliance Blue and Whites.
John Bruner proved to be the stellar attraction as he smashed through the Bulldog primary with bone-splitting power and hit Gacomini with many well-aimed tosses. This smooth-running aerial combination paid off seconds before half time as Gacomini caught one in the Bulldogs end zone.
The Blue and White's forward wall maintained a staunch defense during the third period and well into the fourth. However, the Tigers again broke loose moments before the gun to push another drive over the Bulldogs' goal.
Bruere and Graham, salty Alliance backs, shone in the local backfield.
The entire Blue and White line, who proved themselves able to give and take hard punishment, held Sterling's two two-hundred pound backs to small gains.
Reducing the game to statistics, the Bulldogs held the upper hand. The Alliance lads piled up ten first downs to the Tiger's seven, and gained a total of 173 yards while the opponents gained 104.
After the final tally, "Binnie" sent in the second eleven to finish the game.
ALLIANCE vs. CHADRON
The Alliance Bulldogs opened the 1945 season by trouncing Chadron 30-0 on the College field.
Displaying speed in the backfield and power in the line, the local 11 began a powerful game with Dietrich intercepting a pass and running 45 yards for the first tally of the season.
The starting line-up, consisting of nine seniors, again gained possession of the ball as Barker kicked off and recovered as the ball bounced off a Chadron lineman's chest. It took the flashy back just six plays to cross Chadron’s goal for the second time.
The half ended with the Bulldogs' boasting 179 yards gained to Chadron's 29 yards.
In the third canto. Dietrich passed to Eberly and Brungard for long gains, paving the way for the third tally. Another touchdown made the score 24-0.
After adding another six points to the heavy end early in the fourth, the Bulldogs left the field to the Bullpups.
Graham and Bruere were outstanding in the back-field as they paved the way for an impressive season's
ALLIANCE vs. SIDNEY
Taking every possible advantage to win. the Sidney Maroons smothered the locals 25-0.
A capacity crowd witnessed the first win Coach Leo Shuman's club has scored over an Alliance squad in ten years. The shut-out was caused by several injuries to the regulars which forced Coach Binfield to use both reserve backs and linemen. Bruere sustained a broken collarbone which cut short his senior football career. Eberly, Martin. Graham, and Barker received injuries severe enough to cause them to leave the field. Dietrich failed to start the second half due to roughness.
The locals had control of the ball only once during the first quarter and only a few times in the second. Nothing was gained, however, in either. Sidney’s Bonesteel, one of the best conference backs the Blue and Whites have encountered, sparked the Sidney 11 to drive after drive of power and deception leaving the locals cold. Neither Hunt nor Dietrich could make their aerials work in six attempts. Although the Bulldogs showed better spirit in the second half, they again fell prey to the swivel-hipped, hard-driving Bonesteel. The Alliance 11 was led by the smashing tackles of line-backer Barker, who accounted for most of Sidney’s upsets.
The Blue and White forward wall, playing against a rough and determined Sidney line, showed considerable fire and aggressiveness in the second half.
ALLIANCE vs. NORTH PLATTE
Alliance began its Big Ten competition by swamping North Platte 25-0. The Bulldogs, opening up in the first quarter, began the march which gave them their first touchdown and proved to be the downfall of the Platters.
Barker and Dietrich, leading the Bulldogs’ defensive wall by smashing the end runs of Calhoun and Tillman for many losses, kept the Bulldogs going as they stepped ahead 7 to 0.
The outstanding play of the line proved valuable as the Bulldog line dug in on their own eight and kept the Platters from scoring in the first half of the game.
Coming back at the half, the Bulldogs kicked to North Platte. Barker intercepted a pass and set up another touchdown for the Blue and Whites. With the Bulldogs' failing to make any more extra points, they had piled up a score of 19 to 0 by the end of the third quarter.
The fast Bulldog backs and the outstanding line backing by Dietrich and Barker, as they intercepted six passes of the Platters, proved to be the chief cog of the Bulldog offensive.
The outstanding players of the Platters were Calhoun and Tillman.
rBulldogs fail to stop McCook in goal-line stand.
ALLIANCE vs. McCOOK
Taking their fourth defeat of the season, the Bulldogs were scuttled by the Bison club from McCook. 35-13.
The score, however, showed a bigger margin than did the actual held play. Due to the Bulldogs' usual faulty pass defense, the Bisons were able to outscore the Blue and White and take with them another victory.
Alliance took the opening kick-off. but because of a fumble by Barker the four downs proved useless. McCook took the ball on her own 35 and started marching, scoring late in the first quarter. The Bulldogs retaliated and started to drive, led by Barker, Dietrich, and Graham. Barker scored both the touchdown and the conversion. The second quarter was mostly McCook’s, led by McKillip. The stellar back scored again with a sensational run which made the score 17-7. Led by a fast-moving backfield. starring McKillip. Peppier and Dennel, the Bisons tallied two more counters. The half ended with the McCook squad way out in front, 28-7.
The Bulldogs, led through the line by Barker, came out in the second half with a grim determination to win. The McCook club was lucky to hold Alliance to six points. During the last half, the team looked like the Bulldogs of '44 and '45 as they fought with the old spirit and fire of the last year’s Conference Champions.
Although they managed to score only one more touchdown, the Alliance club played one of their best games during this half.
McCook scored one more touchdown as the result of a quick kick by the Blue and White, and the game ended 35-13.
ALLIANCE vs. CHEYENNE
Cheyenne. Wyo., reaped sweet revenge here when they took the locals to a 40-6 trimming.
The Blue and White received the first kick-off and started out with plenty of zip and fight. Hunt carried the first play through his own tackle for a 10-yard gain. The next four attempts were futile, and Cheyenne took over, thus starting their pay-off drive. Whelan and Storey made the tallies for the Cheyenne club.
The second half was slow in getting under way. but finally produced results for the Cheyenne 11 with a brace of touchdowns by Whelan. The locals pass offense was slow, and few were completed in spite of the attempts of halfback Dietrich. Dietrich finally got one away to Barker which was good for 30 yards. Johnson took another one from Dietrich and made good with six points. Alliance's first and last score of the game. Cheyenne pulled the old statue of liberty play from a fake punt which was good for about 45 yards. This revival of the old razzle-dazzle showed the crowd the flash and deception of the game at its best. The half ended with Cheyenne in possession of the ball The Blue and White backfield standouts were Barker and Dietrich, while the whole Bulldog forward showed unusual fire.Left to Right: Howard Brungard end; Jack Wells, Guard; Tom Morrow, guard;

ALLIANCE vs. KEARNEY
Alliance, playing alert and heads-up football, showed they could give any team a real battle, as they held the Kearney Blue and Golds to a 13-13 draw.
The Alliance club started to click in the second quarter with Barker carrying the load of the backfield as he punched over for the first points. The Blue and Whites again took possession when the Bearcats failed to click because of a fumble and a bad punt, then Graham smashed his way over the line for the second tally for the locals. Kearney, beginning to realize the ability of the Bulldogs, started a hard drive which was climaxed with a scoring end-run by Franks. The
extra point attempt proved good and the half ended 13-7.
The second half showed a determined Kearney 11; but the Bulldogs were able to keep the lid on Kearney’s scoring ability as they held them to six points during the last two cantos. The Bearcats then opened up on passes, but because of the alertness of Dietrich many were foiled. The rest of the game proved scoreless for both 11‘s.
The deadlock was largely due to the play of Wells and Martin of Alliance and of Gill for Kearney. Both the linemen and the backs showed much improvement in offensive and defensive plays, as was indicated by the score.ALVIN WILKINS

ALLIANCE vs. CHAPPELL
Alliance ended its 1945 football season in triumph as she outlasted the Chappell Longhorns, 24-12.
Seven seniors wore their Blue-and-White uniforms for the last time in the Bulldog-Longhorn fracas. They were: Jack Wells, A1 Weinell, Howard Brungard. Tom Morrow, Marvin Dietrich, Maurice Rogers, and Jim Strong.
The first touchdown drive started following the opening kickoff with the Bulldogs punching through the line to their own 45 yard marker for a first down. On the sixth play of the afternoon. Wilkins spun through left tackle and broke away for 55 yards and the first score.
Following the next kick-off. Chappell punted atid after three plays. Alliance carried to the 28 yard line. Dietrich passed to Brungard for the six points.
Minutes later, Taylor passed to Kenney who scored for the visitors from 20 yards out.
Early in the fourth canto, Wilkins again broke through the Chappell line and raced 71 yards to score.
On the first play after Chappell punted later in the quarter. Delimont raced 68 yards for Alliance’s last score.
Taylor passed to Shonka for the visitor’s final tally.
ALLIANCE vs. STERLING
Sterling failed to crash into the win column as they fell before a tall Bulldog five who proved to be supreme as they nosed out Sterling 31 to 30. The Bulldogs. playing their first out-of-town game, had trouble getting under way; but held enough lead at the half to enable them to coast through a fast fight the second half.
Dietrich led the Bulldog scoring attack with a total of 15 points, while Daniels headed the Tiger scoring column with nine points. The Bulldogs held the lead at the end of all four quarters as follows: 12 to 4. 17 to 11. 28 to 22. and 31 to 30.

Our local quintet racked up its second win of the season as they rolled over a listless Crawford five with a score of 61-23.
Wright, opening with the first basket, started a whirl-wind scoring-spree which was led by the center. Dietrich. The first half ended 28-16.
With Dietrich leading again, the Bulldogs, who were playing heads-up ball, were able to hold the lead which had been captured early in the game and were held throughout the whole contest.
The locals played a fast and smart last canto which proved too speedy and deceptive for the worn-out Crawford five.
