FOOTBALL SQUAD ' 31 THE 1930 Kansas State football squad shown above was one of the strongest in several years Coach McMillin was ably assisted by a good group of assistant and freshman coaches in training the hard-working group of Wildcats. The four gentlemen below are those who coached the more than 100 yearlings in the fundamentals of football and through a victory over the highly-touted Kansas freshmen. Carl " Swede " Anderson was head freshman coach and got his training from Coach Bo McMillin at Geneva. It was his first year here. Dr. A. A. Holtz has aided in coaching of freshmen for a number of years and his efforts have always been greatly appreciated by the staff. Dr. H. H. Haymaker also found time from his teaching duties to aid in training the freshmen. Himself a former Aggie quarterback, he did much to develop backfield stars. Owen " Chili " Cochrane had charge of the " B " var- sity, or that group ineligible for either varsity or freshman competition. This squad furnished opposition to the varsity in scrimmages.

Kansas State 10 Nebraska 9 THE Wildcats, volume 1930, must have been the best ever or at least the best since 1911. For never before had a Kansas State team defeated Nebraska. There was once a tie back in 1925, but through all the fourteen games in nineteen years, total points amassed by Wildcat teams were thirty. But that ' s history. It was an inspired and hopeful band of smaller, but more plucky, warriors turned the trick. The Aggies got the ball and ripped through to the 5-yard line, where a fumble was lost to Nebraska. Later in the first period, the Aggies got the ball again and drove toward the goal. On the fourth down, Auker, from a difficult angle, placed a field goal between the posts for a three point lead, which the Aggies held throughout the first half. But in the third period, Nebraska came back with a whirl- ing attack, with Paul making a touchdown and Frahm adding the extra point. The Aggies started passing. Passes failed. An- other failed no.Cronkite leaped into the air and got it. He is gone, stretching those long legs like a stenographer does her small salary. It was good for 71 yards and a touchdown. Wig- gins, despite an injured knee, added the extra point. Score, Wildcats, 10; Nebraska, 7 . The Aggies later were backed to the goal line. Auker went into the game limping on a bad leg. He scored a safety for Nebraska, giving them two points, and then kicked out of danger. It was strategy, no doubt, and won the football game. The first ever to be won from the Huskers by an Aggie team. " BILL " MEISSINGER Halfback " RED " SCHOOLEY End " BILL " DANIELS End

FRESHMAN FOOTBALL r T " ' HE most outstanding freshman football team since 1926 was developed by Coach Carl " Swede " Anderson -L and his assistants last fall. The team scored a 10 to victory over the Kansas freshmen who, the week before, trounced Missouri by a big margin. The Aggies scored two safeties in the first half and Ralph Graham went 45 yards for a touchdown in the second half. The Kansas State freshmen were the only ones in the conference to go undefeated in Big Six competition. The Aggies lost to a more experienced Creighton freshman team, composed to a large extent, of ineligible varsity men. The score was 37 to 6, although at the first half it stood 6 to 6. B. C. Forbes recovered a fumble for the Aggie counter. Numerals were awarded to: Ralph Graham, T. B. Bushby, B. C. Forbes, P. H. Nelson, W. M. Peck, C. S. Skinner, L. W. Soukup.J. H. Hensley, W. J.
