Coach Howard--From the time the basket-
ball season opens until it closes, Coach
practically lives basketball. He really knows
his P's and Q's when it comes to basketball
or any other sport. He was a star basketball
player in college and has excelled in other
sports as well. Coach is respected and ad-
mired by all of the players and is always
willing to give advice or aid, whether it be
spiritual or moral to any fellow he comes
in contact with. He is quiet and even-
tempered. He wins the confidence of the
fellows by his frank and helpful suggestions.
The Foresters are proud of Coach Howard
and they think that he is all that a coach
should be, and more.
Ralph "Boag" Johnson is a second year
man of unusual ability. Boag has had sev-
eral years of experience, playing in high
school and on independent teams before
joining the Forester squad. Boag is a good
shot and can be depended on to help keep
the Foresters in the ball game. He ranked
high this year in the state individual scor-
ing. Boag likes basketball and knows how
to play it. He hopes to be a coach some day,
and if he can coach as well as he can play,
he will produce an awfully tough ball club.
Max "Sodder" Brown is one of the larger
members of the squad faround as well as
up and downlg however, he uses his height
and weight to do an excellent job at center.
Sodder is a Sophomore and is playing his
second season of Forester ball. He is a cool
headed player and tends to hold his team-
mates together during exciting moments. He
can be counted on to "come through" when
Ted Hanauer is the Forester who counted
the most points for the squad this year. He
is a tall, slim player and is very good on
"tip-in" shots. Ted played several years of
high school ball before joining the ranks of
the Forester squad. He plays an aggressive
forward position and is a big scoring threat
under the basket. He led the State Individual
scoring until after mid-season, and remained
near the top when the season closed. Ted
is a Freshman this year playing his first
of varsity ball with undisputable ability.
Richard "Dick" Klopfenstein is another
newcomerg however, Dick ranks as a Junior
and hails from Ciffin College. This was his
first year with the Foresters, during which
he proved to be a valuable player. He did
a good job of teaming with Hanauer at the
forward positions to lead the Forester at-
tack. He is an artist on long shots and one-
handed shots under the basket. If Dick was
left unguarded with the ball, you could usu-
ally depend on him to slip it through the
hoop. He also ranked high in the State ln-
Paul Harwood is another Freshman playing
Forester ball this year. Paul had experience
in high school where he played for several
seasons. His guarding ability is exception-
ally good, and many times he has kept his
opponent from scoring by excellent Suard-
ing. He is one of the larger players and does
a good job of holding down one of the
Dale Pence is playing his third year of
basketball for H. C. Dale is an alert player
and is a very good long shot. He displays
good sportsmanship and cooperation at all
limes. His lack of height kept him from bc-
ing a regular this year, but he always did
a good job as a capable substitute. Dale is
one of the most popular and respected fel-
lows on the squad.

'Last year the Foresters started "the ball
of a bigger and better athletic program
rolling," and this year they have kept it
rolling with increasing momentum. Al-
though the number of victories f8D against
defeats flzj is not so impressive, the brand
of ball and competitive sportsmanship dis-
played is evidence enough that the Forest-
ers were a powerful ball club this year.
lVlany a towering opposition returned home
with their spirits "felled" by the woodsmen.
There were many games that ended in favor
of the opponents, but only after they had
been hard pressed by the "Fighting Forest-
ers." Some of the strongest competition in
the State of Indiana had a hard battle be-
fore they were able to defeat the I-I. C.
squad. There were 5 games that were lost
to strong competition by 4 points or less.
These games could have been lost as easily
as won by either team.
On january first, the Foresters travelled
to Valparaiso University to enter a 4-way
tourney with Valparaiso, Manchester, Cen-
tral Normal, and Huntington participating.
The Woodsmen did not take any honors in
that tourney but they gave their opposition
plenty of trouble a11d demanded respect as
a formidable opponent in future games.
The college and fans may well be proud
ofthe thrill packed season that this year's
squad gave them. The fellows and coach
worked hard and had a lot of fun playing
a good season.

Doid Raab is another Forester playing his
third year of basketball for H. C. He is one
of the taller and heavier players. Although
he was not a regular this year, he saw con-
siderable action as a substitute. Doid takes
a keen interest in the game and does his
best whenever given a chance. He plays a
slow, deliberate brand of ball and is a dang-
erous shot under the basket.
Samuel Pierson, better known as "Sammy,"
is the scrappiest member of the team. He
is the smallest player and perhaps the
quickest. This is Sammy's Sophomore year
at H. C. and his second year on the squad.
Sammy likes to pester his opponents by
stealing the ball from them. He is a hard
playing sportsman and enjoys the game. His
size kept him as one of the first substitutes
of the squad. '
Russell Griffith, Jr., who is known to every-
one as "Rusty," played his third year ol
basketball for H. C. as an able substitute.
Rusty did not play basketball until he came
to H. C. He has that worthy ability of being
a good shot, hard fighting player. He is not
so large but he does his share, and more, of
recovering rebounds. Rusty can be depended
upon to fight the hardest of any of the
squad when he is given a chance.
Robert "Bob" Clark is another one of the
new players that has joined the Forester
squad this season. This is Bob's Freshman
year at H. C. and he shows promise of be-
ing valuable to the squad in future seasons.
He played ball in high school and has con-
tinued to .use his abilities on the H. C.
squad. Bob has proven to be an eager and
Clayton Barker and Winston Becker did not
see much action in varsity competition.
However, they are both Freshmen and show
signs of developing into valuable assets to
the team for the remainder of their college
education. Barker had played ball in high
school but "Beck" did not make the team
when he was in high school. Much can bc
expected of them in the future.
Arlo Schilling, George Humbarger, and
Gordon Overholt comprised the remaining
members of the second team squad. The
second team played many thrilling prelimin-
aries to the "big games." Arlo is a Fresh-
mang George, a Sophomoreg and Gordon,
Student Manager--You have heard how a
beaver works. You know how a mother can
worry. Well, the Foresters have one person
closely associated with them who works like
a beaver and worries 'like-well, almost
like----a mother. Carl Zurcher is the squad's
chore- boy and guardian. It is his duty to
care for the equipment and keep things in
ship shape which includes a hundred-and-
one duties that fall on student managers.
Carl does as much worrying about the con-
dition of the team as Coach does. He is a
dependable, kind, courteous, and intelligent
person. No one could do a better job as
student manager than Carl has done. The
squad thinks that he is "tops."
Yell Leaders-Practically every school has
three or four enthusiastic persons who try
to organize the cheering of the fans. Hunt-
ington College is no exception. john Regier,
Ferne Brindle, Ted Heiney, and Virginia
Williams did a swell job of leading the
cheering. A good cheering section aids team
spirit, good yell, leaders can help make a
good cheering section. We had all of them
this year, thanks to the efforts of Johnny,
Ferne, Ted, and Ciny.
