Rasn or shine, harriers prepare to run a good time. PAUL DODSON
The cross country team compiled the best record for the sport in the school's
history by winning seven and losing only one. This was almost a complete re-
versal of the previous seasons when only a total of three meets were won. The only
loss was by one point to Holland, the only team defeated by the Tiger harriers in
the previous three seasons.
Paul Dodson was the number one runner and wasn't defeated by an opposition
runner until the state tournament when he finished a strong seventh after keeping
up with the leader until the last couple hundred yards. Ron Lange and Jim Herring
were generally right up with Dodson at the finish. Following these three came
George Peapples, Tony Littke, Cecil Pringle, Don Davino, Herman Pollard, Charles
Williams, and Jim Sherrill.
In the regionals, Benton Harbor finished sixth in a field of eleven. This showing
would have undoubtedly been better is Herring had completely recovered from
a bout with the flu. Besides Dodson with his first place finish, Lange also qualified
for the state meet by finishing ninth.

two miles later Paul Dodson was all alone as he receives his first place marker from Mr. Elsner.

Despite the fact that The Benton Harbor gridiron
squad suffered its worst season in seven years, They
gave some very commendable performances, as The
state's Top Teams can testify.
The Tigers' star soared like a premature Sputnik when
They crashed Chicago Well's goal line six Times in The
opening game to Win 36-6. Harbor was rated tenth in
The state as a result of this convincing victory.

Tigers' roar to the tune of 20-O. The Orange and Black
robed squad's offense, the least of their worries in the
first game, could never get off the ground against

South Bend St. Joseph game, forcing a cancellation.
In the next game against the Muskegon Big Reds,
Benton Harbor was literally "locked out" of the victors'
circle. In the first period of play, Muskegon sophomore
Terry Locke broke away for two touchdown romps. AI-
though the Tigers' defense stiffened during the remain-
ing minutes of the game, the damage was done. The
final score was T2-O.
October eighteenth's Tilt with Kalamazoo was "one
for the books." Until the fourth quarter The game had
been a hard fought defensive battle with each team
making two successful goal line stands. Early in the
fourth quarter the Maroon Giants' quarterback punted
from his own end zone, stepping out of the end zone
as he did so, giving Benton Harbor 2 points. Leo Hall,
Bill Umphrey, and Jerry Biggart were the backbones of
the Tiger defense that held Kazoo to a minus nine
yards rushing while Jim Turner accounted for half
the Bengals' yardage.
