With a number of freshmen dotting the lineup, the Pirates began the season with a 7 to 6 victory over Morton. Using straight power plays, the Pirates crashed through for their lone touchdown early in the game. Elmhurst scored its second victory at the expense of St. Joseph College of St. Joseph, Indiana. In this game the Pi- rates repeated their tactics of the opener and pounded out an 8 to 6 victory. Aurora College came next and again the Pirates scored first on a long drive down the field. In the last quar- ter, however, the Aurora squad launched an amazing aerial attack that scored the game-tying touchdown. Frosh gridmen played a stellar role in destroying Wheaton ' s Homecoming with a 6 to 0 Elmhurst victory. The Pirates completely dominated the game, scoring the only touchdown on a pass in the second period. Two nights before the big Homecoming battle with the powerful North Central team. Head Coach Lang- horst was laid low by an attack of appendicitis, but with Coach Holden in charge, the Pirates turned in a moral victory by holding the vaunted Naper- ville aggregation to a 19 to 13 count. De Kalb, the next Elmhurst opponent, punched over four touchdowns in the first quarter, finally subduing the Pi- rates, 47 to 12. The Pirates took the field against St. Viator determined to avenge the severe drubbing given them by the visitors during the previous season and did so by a score of 27 to 6. 48 At the left top . . • JOHNNY NIENSTED, jun- ior left half back . . ■ next to him . . • SHINE ROBBINS, freshman half back ... to the right of Robbins . . .

Hoefer took charge as coach, how- ever, and turned out a team which won three dual meets, lost one, and finished third in a triangular meet. The Buc thinclads trounced Morton Junior College twice and Chicago once. They were barely nosed out at Loyola University, and finished third in a triangular meet with Wheaton and Loyola- Leonard Wolf was the mainstay of the team, along with Irving Camerer, Bob Sheahan, and Bob Camerer was elected captain of the team when Hoefer resigned.

Hampered by ineligibility, injuries, and poor team morale, the Bucs were able to defeat only Aurora, a non-conference opponent. College of Optometry, North Cen- tral, Wheaton, De Kalb, and Eureka each defeated the Pirates twice, while Aurora, Carthage, Macomb Teachers, and George Williams each trimmed them once. The Pirates began the season with what was thought to be the finest team in some years, but a winning combination was never found. The Chicago College of Optometry started the Bucs on the trail of defeat by a score of 28 to 23. Aurora then swamped the Bucs by a score of 41 to 28. The Pirates later reversed this de- cision in a return game on the Elmhurst court. Wheaton nosed out the Bucs in the final minutes of their first game, 34 to 24, and trounced them in the second en- gagement, 39 to 22. De Kalb piled up a 41 to 17 margin over the Bucs in the first meeting of the two teams on the Elmhurst court, and practically duplicated the score, 44 to 13, in the second game on the De Kalb court. Eureka took the measure of the Pirates, 50 to 29, and 33 to 2 5, and North Central also beat them twice, 44 to 24 and 3 8 to 22. Macomb Teachers won a single game from the Pirates, 44 to 34, and Col- lege of Optometry won its second victory over Elmhurst, 47 to 20, on the Optom- etry floor. George Williams Colle ge also defeated the Bucs in a game on the oppo- nents court. As the scores indicate, the team improved vastly as the season progressed, but ineligibility and the withdrawal of several players from the team left it with- out sufficient reserve strength, and many games were lost in the final minutes of play.

With a squad that is nicely balanced with veterans and newcomers, Moon began indoor practice right after Christmas. Wolf, Sheahan, Jaeger, and Cam- erer are the outstanding veterans on this year ' s squad. Wolf, whose specialty has been the mile, was entered in the 220, 440, and relay in the Wheaton meet and gave promise of being a certain point- getter. Sheahan has been a consistent per- former in both the mile and two mile, and Jaeger has copped a great many points in the dashes and the broad jump. Cam- erer has yet to be defeated in the two mile in a dual meet. Carl Kroenlein, a senior, has added needed strength in the pole vault and the dashes, and has been an important cog in the relay team. Martin Knicker has been garnering points in the pole vault, and Armin Munz, a junior, has been used in the dashes and the relay. Frank Kroh, and Frank Vertovec, both sophomores, have been entered in the mile and two mile, and in the shot put respectively. Earl Young, a sophomore, has bolstered the squad in the low hurdles. Thor Chris- tensen has been throwing the javelin. Freshman stars who have played leading parts in the Buc ' s success this year are Bob Leuschke, Irving Baumrucker, Dick Vandekieft, Shine Robbins, Lucian Keppel, Don Jepsen, and Art Hilander. Leuschke has been a consistent winner in the low hurdles and the javelin. Baum- rucker is a star performer in the 440 and 880, and has been running anchor on the relay team. Vandekieft does equally well in the high jump and the shot put, and Hilander has been winning points in the high jump, javelin, and high hurdles. Shine Robbins has won several places in the javelin and discus for the Bucs. Lu- cian Keppel has been entered in the pole vault, and gives evidence of developing into a dependable vaulter. Don Jepsen is another javelin and discus man who has acquired several points toward his letter. 55 Elmhurst ' s 193 5 baseball team began the season with the best prospects for a successful season in many years, and immediately set out to live up to the expectations of its followers by beating Northwestern University 4 to 2 in the opening game of the season. The Buc ' s next start was against De Kalb, and here they dropped a heart-breaker by a score of 1-0. The Pirates then came back by whipping Wheaton, 4 to 1. Paul Bloesch, veteran Elmhurst pitcher, pitched all three of the early season games and allowed only one earned run in the three tilts. He is just as effective in the batter ' s box as he is on the mound, and gives every indication of having a bigger year than he had last year. BLOESCH is in the center of the picture. Across the top row are: MANFRED STOERKER, who is not a hitter of the powerhouse type, but more than makes up for his weakness at bat with his steady fielding in center field; RUDY ALLRICH, lanky first baseman, whose hitting in the pinches has contributed to the team ' s success this year; ROLAND VETTER, speedy left fielder of the Pirates, and a consistent hitter; HUBERT STOLPER, a smart, hard-working catcher, directs the Pirates from behind the plate; ROY ANDERSON, right fielder. In the center row are PAUL JANS, HAROLD BRUCKNER, and ROBERT HAPPEL of the Pirate reserve force; and FRANK BORK, slugging shortstop of the Pirates, whose depend- able fielding and heavy batting make him a fixture in the infield. In the bottom row are: DICK PARSHALL, right fielder; WALLY BLOESCH, brother of Paul Bloesch, the regular Buc third sacker; ALVIN KUHLMAN, another reserve; SHINE ROBBINS, who plays second base and teams up with Bork to give the Bucs a stellar keystone combination; and ARNOLD LAMBARTH, reserve pitcher. 56 Coach C. C. Arends, who has coached Elmhurst tennis teams for the last five years and has never a losing squad, again turned out a strong net team this year. Despite the loss of his ace number one man through graduation, Coach Arends has assembled a i that began its season by tying the University of Chicago " B " team. The Bucs lost to a powerful Bradley 1 in their second start of the year, 4 to 2. TENNIS VERNON HOECKER, captain of the team, who appears m the lower right corner of the picture, has been playing in the number one position. A veteran who is in his second year of competition, Hoecker has de- veloped rapidly under Coach Arends ' tutelage. Hoecker combines a fine competitive temperament with a sound game. The Buc number two man, FRED SIBLY, is shown in the upper right hand corner. Possessed of a brilliant game, but inclined to be erratic at times, Sibly has the ability to ring up a respectable number of victories this year. EMIL HANSEN, who is second from the left at the top, plays in the number three posi- tion for the Bucs. One of the best players in the conference a few years ago, Hansen was forced from Com- petition by illness, but his comeback this year has left no doubt that he will be an important cog in all Elm- hurst victories. PAUL EISEN, who appears between Hansen and Sibly, and BILL STRAND, who is at the top left, have been waging a bitter battle for the number four post. Eisen, who is probably the most consistent player on the squad, is a constant threat to any competition, and Strand, another player who is likely to reach the peak of his game against strong opposition, is capable of many victories. EUGENE BAUER, in the lower left hand corner, and JOHNNY NIENSTED, bottom center, have been pushing Eisen and Strand all year. 57 INTRAMURALS Across the top . . . the hne: REICH- ENBACH, K R O H , BERGER, HUBER, ARNESON, SATTER, LAUER, LIPPERT, WOBBE ... the backs: KNICKER, STOER- KER, GABLER, SCHLUNDT, CAM- ERER ... the Soph Blues, of course . . . center . . . the coed bas- ketball champs . . .
