Personal Glimpsis 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 needed. 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- dividual Scoring. 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 guard positions. 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. 50

TheEFores ters '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. 49 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 dependable substitute. Clayton Barker and Winston Becker did not see much action in varsity competition. However, they are both Freshmen and show SI 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, a junior. 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.
