On the face of things, a fair season was the prospect. The Tigers had eight lettermen, including
three of the regulars from last year. A large squad of 36 boys turned out for practice each night.
At catcher, the Bengals have two letterrnen from last season, Everett Grandelius and Sam Bybee.
First base was well covered by Roy Sanders, with Alvia Cater in line for a close second. At second
base is Earl Beam and Paul Anderegg. Beam was on on last season's team. Larry Boone and
Stan Whitlow were holding down short. Larry was a regular second baseman last year, shifted to
shortstop to fill Captain Henry Olah's place. The "hot corner" was guarded by Richard Ghezzi, an R-l
winner, and by Bill Williams.
In left field was Fred Moeller, a soph, and Ronald Kinsman, who Won an R-1 last season. In cen-
ter, Leland Branch, MH winner from last season, and Robert Taylor. In right field is the veteran Rich-
ard Caughey, and alternate Floyd Dunham.
Pitchers were led by Ed Petrongelli, last year's regular batting in clean-up position: Earl Beam,
Alan Kushner, Neil Frick, Murlin Bush, and Gary Hoekenga.

A bright spot in a rather dismal basketball season has been
the climb of the Little Tigers to the Little Southwestern Conference
Championship. The title was not decided until the last game of
the season when Coach Herman A. Kriuzenga's red-hot quintet
defeated the Muskegon seconds, 40-25.
In their first conference game of the year the Baby Bengals
edged out a 40-39 victory over a tall Holland team. This was the
start of a four game winning streak which brought three more
wins to the second's total. The Tiger Cubs lost to Muskegon 36-28
and to Holland 32-28 for their only conference losses of the season.
These two losses seemed to stimulate our seconds who soared to
new heights, winning their last four games, and taking the con-

Our cinder squad at the time of this writing was
progressing rapidly. It looked as if we would have
a good team.
There are three lettermen retuming to bolster
Coach McKenzie's flying Tigers. These boys include
Paul Hulka, fast dash man and relay man, while
Bob Werner comes back to run the 440 and relay for
Mac with Ronald Zoratti, the other letterrnan, trying
his luck with the shot.
New comers and others retuming include Clifford
Georiche, running the mile: Paul Cook and Doug
Garvey, half milers and dash men, DePoy, Ramsey,
and Howell. Howell and Borgman have been doing
well on the hurdles. The Tigers are green, but could
develop into a strong track team. Watch their dust
and spikes, while we sign off now and go to press.
