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.

taste of troubles to come. The "Bucs" softened the
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
Influenza U-Xsian typej was the decided victor in the
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.

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.

The Niles Vikings' invasion of Filstrup Field October
25th was a desolate occasion. Early in the first quarter
a Viking back broke through to pay dirt for the game's
only tally. The Harbor defense stiffened from then on,
but the offense ran into a brick wall as the final score
was Niles-6, B.H.-O.
Six hundred Benton Harbor rooters cheered the team
on at Muskegon Heights, having participated in the an-
nual train trip which is the highlight of the football sea-
son. On the first play from scrimmage, speedy Osie
McCarty of Heights broke away for a 78-yard touch-
down run. Again early in the second quarter, McCarty
scored, this time as a pass play. After these two costly
escapades the Tigers controlled McCarty as though they
had a custom-made straight-iacket and decidedly out-
played Heights the entire second half. The Tigers made
several drives into Heights' territory in the second half,
but were denied a touchdown for the 5th straight
The contest with Holland, played in winds so strong
that punts went backwards, was won by our Harbor
eleven, 7-6, ending a 5 game touchdown and P.A.T.
famine. The TD came on a short pass to Chet Walker and
Joe Rodgers ran the extra point. Inch deep mud on the
field greatly hampered running, while the wind, with
gusts of 50 M.P.H., was not exactly helpful as far
as the aerial game was concerned.
"A young gentleman about to be grounded."
"Almost made it, the next play we did."
ln the first quarter of the Grand Rapids Union game
Benton Harbor launched a relentless 80-yard TD march,
climaxed by a 37-yard Colemen-to-Yarbrough pass. Early
in the fourth quarter, trailing 13-6, our Tigers drove
from their own 35-yard stripe to the Union l-foot line,
from where Duane Mitchell plunged over, only to
have the touchdown nullified by a penalty. Fullback
Duane Mitchell played his best game in his three year
varsity career, plowing through the Union line for a
total of 90 yards. Three long runs won the game for
