COACHES-fContinuedJ Ivan J. Laws, "B" team football coach for the last eleven years, led the Tiger 'Cubs" again last season. A graduate of Illinois University, he has built up a reputation for developing inexperienced boys into potential varsity men. Don Farnum, Perigo's classmate at Western, led the Tiger second team for the third year. His coaching gives ambitious sophomores a chance to develop into varsity material. Lloyd Chappel, a newcomer to the coaching ranks, joined the staff as cross-country coach last fall. A brilliant runner, who once wore the Orange and Black stripe, he brought the sport back into its own by developing several classy runners. He also is serving as assistant track coach this spring. john Bridgham, newlyeappointed tennis coach, completes the staff. Bridgham won letters in the sport at Grinnel and he is hoping to bring forth a strong squad this season. 6 qv fLeft to Rightl: Leach, Reid, Grams, Trux, Miller, Boettcher. MANAGERS The managers of the athletic teams deserve credit for the excellent way in which they handled the equipment and looked after the bruises and bumps of the athletes during the year. Performing a job to which little glory and much work is attached, these boys are of invaluable aid to the- school.. Letters were awarded to Leach, Stanley Miller, Trux, Clyde Reid, and Alfred Boettcher.

SEASON SUMMARY With a new and experienced coach-Mr. Carleton B. Roels-at the helm, an almost com' pletely veteran crew of Tigers got off to a brilliant start in the 1938 season with an easy victory over the Dowagiac Chieftans. The little school fought hard but the Bengals' great all-around play brought victory to them. The next weekfend, the team travelled to Kalamazoo to do battle with the big maroons. Although the line, led by guards Hampton and Ireland, pushed the Celery City boys all over the ield in the Erst half, a couple of long runs by Berry, their all-state back, clinched the game. Back on their own field, the Tigers resumed their winning ways by taking measure of a listless Niles eleven. The statistics showed Niles took a worse beating than the score indicated. Muskegon's Big Reds really got a scare as they made it three decades since a local team has beaten them. The Tigers threatened all the way, and iinally crept up to within one point when Hen- drix scored after Taylor deposited a long pass inches from the goal line. With two minutes to play they had the ball on the Reds' four'yard line. In spite of this, the contest was a moral victory for the Bengals and the fans were justly proud of their team's heroic efforts. Inability to score from within the ten-yard line kept the Bengals' total against Grand Haven from mounting. In spite of this, they turned in another fine game and raised high their fans' hopes of a great season. Still drinking deeply of the bittemess of last year's defeat, the boys returned the follow- ing week to trounce their old Maize and Blue rivals from across the river. Before nearly five thousand fans, they excelled in every department of the game and really evened up the year'old score. In a driving November rainstorm, our Tigers fought to a scoreless tie with Muskegon Heights' Tigers. Both teams were hampered by the conditions and true test might have brought about a changed score. It is interesting to note- that Heights was the only team to equal our boys in total yardage, each gaining 106. The following Saturday, the Tigers romped to an easy victory over the demoralized Dutch' men of Holland. Several sophomores showed well in this game-particularly Peckham and Buck' ner-showing great promise for the 1939 season. The climax of the season, which ended the high school careers of nineteen seniors, saw the Tigers tie the hardfiighting St. Augustine team from Kalamazoo. After the season, anotner honor came to the team when Glenn Ireland was named on the All-state team. To Coach Roels and his boys orchids for bringing to our school one of the most sucf cessful seasons in many years.
