u PUBLISHED AT THE STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE RIVER FALLS, WISCONSIN VOLUME 38 THE LIBRARY WISCONSIN STATE COLLEGE RIVER FALLS, WISCONSIN 3TO THE ALUMNI . . . Whose loyalty and support during the many years since the first class left the campus have been responsible in very large measure for the success and advancement of their alma matter. 4370.1 5 LO 7-5X am 5FOREWORD 1949 marks the seventy-fifth year since the founding of the River Falls State Teachers College, and the '49 MELETEAN in addition to reviewing people and events of the past year also pays honor to the people and events of former years that have made the College what it is today. 6CONTENTS 0 THE COLLEGE 0 ACTIVITIES 0 SPORTSTHE OLD NORMAL SCHOOL BUILDING THE FIRST BUILDING ON THE CAMPUS ERECTED 1875 DESTROYED BY FIRE 1897 THE RIVER FALLS STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE Founded 1874, the fourth normal school to be established in Wisconsin by the Board of Regents of Normal Schools. Opened 1875 with a faculty of nine and a student body in the Normal Department of 104. 1897— The Normal School building destroyed by fire. The school opened at one o'clock the next afternoon in buildings offered by citizens of River Falls, and "continued during the year without the loss of a single student and but one half day's loss occasioned by the fire." 1898— South Hall erected and opened September 6. 1909—First summer session held. 1912—Department of Agriculture established. 1914—North Hall constructed. Two tracts of farm land, aggregating about forty-five acres, purchased. 1917- 1920—Further purchase of farm lands. 1918— Barracks built in 1917 for a unit of the Student Army Training Corps transformed into shops for the Agricultural Mechanics department. 1920—Athletic field purchased. 1926- 1927—Four-year courses leading to the degree of bachelor of educa-cation established. The River Falls Normal School becomes the River Falls State Teachers College. 1927— The Training School Building constructed. 1930—Industrial Arts Building completed. 1935— River Falls State Teachers College granted accreditment in the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. 1945—Appropriation of $347,000 by the state legislature for the construction of new buildings.

Richards, 1942-1945 Dr. Chalmer Davee, 1946- 9 The most important factors in a college are the students and the faculty. The college is in the class-rooms where the student meets the teacher. In every year of its history the student body at River Falls has been characterized by a spirit of loyalty to the college and a cooperative attitude toward the faculty and the administration. Outstanding records have also been characteristic in the various activities of the school in which students have taken a leading part—athletics, forensics, publications, dramatics and other fields. The brilliant record of River Falls athletic teams in intercollegiate competition is well known. This department has been fortunate in the character and ability of the men who have directed its program. Many of these men have received appointments to responsible posts in athletic departments of some of the leading universities. The achievements of members of the faculty in class-room work has established a reputation which reflects great credit on the college. Evidence of this high standard of scholarship and teaching skill is found in the records made by graduates of the college in the graduate departments of many universities. Members of the River Falls faculty, in every period of the school's history, have been called to important positions in other institutions of higher learning, some to the presidencies of other colleges, and some to positions on the instructional staffs of leading colleges and universities.Important contributions to the progress of the college have been mode by loyal alumni. Graduates of the college in teaching positions widely over the state have directed the attention of prospective students to the facilities at River Falls. The support of the local community in making River Falls "a good place to go to school" has played an important part in the growth and progress of the college throughout its history. World War II took a heavy toll of both students and faculty. Over 1000 students and graduates entered the armed forces. Eight members of the faculty took leaves of absence to engage in the war effort. The college, however, maintained its standards and the usual activities with some curtailments. With the close of the war many veterans returned to college, and the enrollment rose to the high of 831 In the fall of 1948. To promote the future expansion of the college there was organized in 1947 the River Falls State Teachers College Foundation, with Edward Rock of Hudson as president of the board of directors. Contributions were made to the fund at once, and an intensive drive was carried on during the last of 1948 and the early part of 1949. $250,000 is the goal, and the fund is well on the way to that goal. "The Foundation," says President Kleinpell, "will assure the future progress of the college, for it will provide that extra spark so necessary to our future building requirements." The foregoing account was compiled from a history of the River Foils State Teochers College written by J. H. Ames, former president.ADMINISTRATION 9B| FACULTY HH CLASSES HH 13OR.

The welfare of all women students is the general purpose of the organization. More specific purposes include: the welcoming of incoming freshmen; sponsorship of the homecoming queen, her robe, crown, flowers, and reception; management of the annual Christmas Tea formerly handled by Miss Hathorn,- charge of Mother's Day which has become a tradition on our campus; and last but not least, sponsorship of on all-girl banquet held in the spring for the installation of the new officers elected in March. The organization publishes a handbook which contains the club's constitution, instructions for election of officers, greeting from the Dean of Women and club officers, a copy of housing rules posted in all CWA approved houses, and other information which may prove helpful to girls beginning college life. The last paragraph of this handbook entitled, "Campus Living," sums up the aims of the organization as follows: "College can be a rich experience, socially as well as academically; what you gain from your years in college will depend upon you. You will meet hundreds of new people — your adviser, your instructors, other students — each of whom will form some opinion of you. Endeavor to be what you desire to appear as you make each of the many choices which will confront you in the many new opportunities which lie ahead." 65Back row: Potorson, Llotzke, Savage, CKorlraw, Taylor.

Meetings were built around speakers, Bible study, the impressive Candlelight Dedication Service, and hymn fests. The YW also canvassed the town in an old clothing drive for needy Europeans. In order to finance sending a delegate to the Geneva Conference, candy sales were held. The YW girls closed the year with a picnic-outing in the park. The YWCA and the YMCA have worked together on various projects throughout the year. Their first joint project was the traditional Freshman Mixer on the first night of the school year. From there they progressed into the YM-YW breakfast discussions, which were usually held at Professor Jacobson's home twice monthly at 7:30 Sunday mornings. During the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter seasons, the two groups held special vesper services at the churches. They also cooperated on the World Student Service Fund Drive to aid foreign students. Perhaps their most succesesful project was the February weekly meetings which this year took the form of a courtship and marriage lecture series. The advisers for YM are Professors Jacobson and Sheldon,- YW advisers are Miss Liene-man and Mrs. A. S. Johnson. 67Back row: McLaughlin, Forlhun, Greenfield, Krueger, Murry.

A picnic on the campus, a mixer in North Hall gym, a lively movie, a fine concert by the Minneapolis Lions Club Quartet, teas, and entertainment by the various church clubs welcomed the freshmen and introduced campus life to them. 91THE QUEEN AND HER COURT HOMECOMING—1948 A capable and efficient homecoming chairman. Beautiful queen and attendants. Many and clever floats—the freshmen won the first prize (sorry, our photographers didn't get a successful picture of that). Carefully decorated houses—the veterans at the campus apartments carried away the honors there. Clever skits. Wonderful weather. A fine display of school spirit. And a great football team, even though we didn't win the game. Homecoming chairman Harold Shay. Betsy Welch, Gretchen Luebke, Shirley Swanson.

The stupendous scoring ace led the Falcons to their third straight conference championship and in so doing tallied 650 points in 27 games. Thus in three years of collegiate participation Nate has scored 1735 points, only 464 short of the all-time collegiate record of 2199 points. With one more year of competition remaining, "Big Nate" has an excellent chance of establishing a new record.

Olson 1 0 6 Safety .... 2 128 112The River Falls Falcons, defending conference Champs, remained in the 1948 football title chase until the final week of the season, but a long string of injuries to key men took its toll, and the fighting Falcons dropped their last two conference starts, thus giving the Blugolds of Eau Claire the state championship. With the loss of such sterling performers as Burk-hard, Vanderhoof, Werndli, Levenick, Teske, Jansen, Tobias, and Schuman from the '47 squad. Coach George Schlagenhauf and assistants Kolberg and Hoy were forced to rebuild the River Falls eleven. Optimism ran high as the '48 Falcon squad reported for the first practice session September 1st, despite the loss of the afore-mentioned gridmen. This optimism quickly changed to pessimism, as one by one highly regarded players suffered serious injuries. As the season opened against Hamline, veteran players such as quarterback Gordon Olson, all-conference backs Schock and Feller, regular guards McCardle and Glauner were all missing from the lineup due to injuries. After the opening loss to Hamline University, the Falcons came back to win four successive games, but with the championship hanging in the balance the old injury jinx struck again and the Falls aggregation went down to three successive defeats. Despite the disappointing finish of the team many of Coach Schlagenhauf's stars reaped individual rewards. The Falcons placed more men (four) on the All-State eleven than any other team in the Wisconsin State Teachers College Conference. Halfbacks Cardinal and Schock along with Wilson at center and McCardle at guard made the honorary team. In addition to this the veteran Cardinal led the conference in scoring as "scat-back Bunny" tallied six touchdowns and added eight P. A. T s for 38 points. Highlighting the past season's grid activities was the stirring 27-18 triumph over Superior State at Ra-mer Field. It was the peak effort of the season for - the. Falcons. Following this sensational win. River Falls ran into the big, bad Blugolds of Eau Claire in ■ the Falcons homecoming dash. After a terrific struggle Eau Ciaire emerged the winner 13-7, and an injury riddled River Falls squad could not regain enough strength to come out victorious against La Crosse and Gustavus Adolphus in the season's finals. The River Falls eleven had good personnel but seldom could field their strongest line due to recurring injuries. CHEERLEADERS Top: Fredeen. Center row: Schaer, Radkey.

With five regulars on the 1947 championship team out with injuries. Coach Schloaenhauf was forced to start a relatively inexperienced lineup. The first quarter was scoreless and both teams had difficulty in getting their offense to click. However, in the second period the Pipers intercepted a Falcon pass to score the initial points of the game. The Falcons struck bock with their best offensive spurt of the game with Cardinal, Gordon Grilley and Feiler leading the way. A fumble halted the advance and the locals never threatened again. In the second half the Falcons wilted in the heat and the Pipers scored twice to rack up a 20-0 triumph Willis Castle and Sam Richie were the Hamline stars while Gene Cardinal and Bob Wilson did yeoman work for River Falls. RIVER FALLS 28—WHITEWATER 19 The opening conference game saw a revitalized Falcon team come from behind to soundly defeat the visitors from Whitewater. Still handicapped by numerous injuries the Falcons fell behind 12-0, as speedy Don Erickson raced 65 yards with a River Falls punt in the first quarter for a T. D., and later in the second quarter a blocked punt gave the White-water boys their second six points. The Falcon "T" showed signs of life in the first quarter and finally in the second canto a varied running and passing game gave the locals their first T. D. of the '48 season. A five-yard pass from Cardinal to DeLong climaxed a 72-yard scoring drive. In the second half the Falcons broke loose with a strong running and passing game which enabled them to go into the lead. A 45-yard drive ended in a scoring pass. Cardinal to Gibbs. Later guard Norb Studelska blocked a Quaker punt for a safety and just a few plays later another Falcon drive ended successfully with Horkness pitching to big Nate DeLong for another T. D. Whitewater came back to tally on a pass, but little Gene Cardinal scooted 18 yards in the fourth quarter to clinch the win. Cardinal, running and passing, was the outstanding feature of the game along with some nice pass receiving by the Falcon ends. Freshmen Hark-ness and Linehan showed up well in the contest. RIVER FALLS 26-STOUT 7 A visiting Falcon grid team gave their hosts, the Blue Devils of Stout Institute, a neat 26-7 trimming in a night game at Menomonie. The Falcon line with McCardle and Glauner getting back in action stopped Stout's rushing attack cold and at the same time opened gaping holes for the speedy River Falls 114bocks. Acting Captain Gene Cardinal raced 55 yards for the first Falcon score and early in the second period quarterback Harley Horkness sneaked over the double line for the second score. Gordon Sc hock was back in action for the first time and his powerful running sparked the Falcon offensive surge. Along with "Card," Schock tore the Blue Devil line to shreds to tally again in the fourth canto. Everett "Nook" Grilley swept end for 48 yards and the final Falcon score. The Blue Devils' passing attack finally accounted for a Stout tally in the final minutes ogainst the River Falls reserves. It was the best all-around game played by the Falcons thus far in the season. RIVER FALLS 12—PLATTEVILLE 0 The Platteville Pioneers took on the River Falls Falcons in their homecoming fray and in turn the obliging Falcons "took" the Pioneers into camp 12-0. At the kickoff an aroused Pioneer aggregation stopped the Falcons' offensive efforts and quickly generated a drive of their own. They carried to the Falls five-yard line only to be halted by a stirring defensive stand by the Falcons. Schock then carried for ten after River Falls gained possession. Cardinal streaked for another 20, Schock and Feiler blasted for short gains to the Platteville 38-yard line. Here Feiler powered his way through the line and literally exploded into the clear for the first score. The second quarter saw another Falcon offensive display, with Schock and Feiler accounting for most of the yardage. Gordy cut through tackle for the final eight yards and the Falcons had a 12-0 leod for the half. The final 30 minutes was played largely in mid-field as neither team could get rolling. Platteville fired pass after pass, but an alert secondary defense and a rushing Falcon line erased the temporary threat. RIVER FALLS 27-SUPERIOR 18 After three consecutive conference wins the Falcons ran into their stiffest competition of the year in the Superior Yellow jackets. A courageous comeback enabled the hard-hitting Falcons to score a 27-18 triumph. Walter "Doc" West, Superior quarterback, uncorked a series of beautiful passes which gave the Yellowjackets two first period tallies. Swept off their feet by the Superior aerial game. River 115 Butch McCardle, Guard Dick Swenson, GuardWayne Sinnen, End Dave Ruhsam, End Falls couldn't get going until the second period. After the second Superior score, Gene Cardinal and Gordon Schock carried 60 yards in three plays to give the fighting Falcons their first score. Cardinal streaked 28 yards for the big six points. Another Superior threat was checked and the Falcons Immediately drove 80 yards for the second T.D. Again Schock and Cardinal were the big guns in the drive. Gordon Olson scored the touchdown on a sneak over center. Cardinal's perfect placement gave the Falcons a 14-12 half-time lead. However, River Falls wasn't through yet, as they received the second half kick-off and promptly marched to their third counter. Schock blasted over the goal for the score after he. Cardinal and Feiler tore off the yardage. The Falcons turned to the air to account for their fourth score as Gordy Olson flipped a pay-off pass to end Nate Delong. Superior came back on West's passes to score again, but this was the Falcon's game and the aroused locals scored an impressive 27-18 win over a worthy foe. RIVER FALLS 7-EAU CLAIRE 13 The annual River Falls homecoming game saw the unbeaten Blugolds of Eau Claire smash headlong into the unbeaten Falcons of River Falls. Played before the largest crowd ever to see a game at Ramer Field, the game was hard fought throughout, but Eau Claire scored in the last quarter to break a 7-7 tie and thus emerge the winner. A big and active Eau Claire line played havoc with the Falcon "T" and with the exception of Gordon Schock the River Falls backs had trouble getting anywhere. An early Eau Claire surge was halted short of the goal and play see-sawed back and forth until mid-way in the second period, when Harley Harkness heaved a beautiful aerial into the waiting arms of "Bunny'' Cardinal who ran to score. The play covered 52 yards. The lead was short-lived, as Eau Claire took advantage of a fumbled punt to score just before the half ended. Gordon Schock injured a shoulder in the first-half play and was forced to leave the game. His departure meant the beginning of the end for the Falcons, as their offense failed to click without the explosive running of Schock. The Falcons battled valiantly, but Eau Ciaire's powerful line took its toll and finally fullback Bob Schaaf was sprung loose for 52 yards and the winning touchdown. 116RIVER FALLS 13-LA CROSSE 39 Obviously down after suffering the heartbreaking defeat to Eau Claire, the River Falls Folcons fell before a vengeful La Crosse eleven 39-13 at La Crosse. Again the old injury jinx cropped out and the Falcons manpower was seriously limited. The game began badly for River Falls, as La Crosse blocked Cardinal's punt and recovered for a touchdown. Little Gene quickly righted that as he streaked around end for 66 yards for a score and added the point after to give the Falcons a 7-6 lead. However, this was the Indians' night and they really went on the warpath to grab a 19-7 half-time lead. Ace Loomis, Mirschl. Evans and Dohr led a powerful running game which shattered the sluggish Falcon line. River Foils rallied in the second half to cut the margin to 19-13 as on Olson to DeLong pass resulted in a 20-yard scoring thrust. Another Falcon aerial offensive fell short and La Crosse broke loose for three touchdowns in the last quarter to swamp the Falls eleven 39-13. RIVER FALLS 13-GUSTAVUS ADOLPHUS 39 A stubborn but crippled Falcon team journeyed to St. Peter to meet the powerful Gusties and fell victim to the well-manned Minnesotans 39-13. The tricky, speedy Falcon "T" formation gave the Gusties considerable trouble, but River Falls with several players on the injury list, just couldn't muster the mon-power to keep on even terms with Gustavos. Big, fast-moving Red Malcolm moved for yardoge almost at will and personally accounted for three of the six Gustie touchdowns. Gene Cardinal made the first Falcon score in the first half and continued his fine ploy. Harley Hark ness intercepted a wild Gustie pass late in the ball game and sped 30 yards for the final Falcon T.D. Meanwhile Gustavus pounded through and around the Folcons for six touchdowns, enabling them to emerge as 39-13 winners. The non-conference fray with Gustavus ended the college careers of end Dave Ruhsom, tackle Wayne Sinnen and guard "Butch" McCardle.

RIVER FALLS 68—Augsburg 42 A veteran Falcon basketball squad opened the 1948-49 cage season by trouncing an outclassed team from Augsburg College 68-42. River Falls rolled to a 32-20 half-time lead and the "Auggies" never threatened in the ragged contest. Big Nate DeLong meshed 15 points in the first half and added two in the second half to lead the scorers. Newmen Benson gave a brilliant exhibition of possing and shooting and shared scoring honors with DeLong and sharpshooting Harry Gibbs. Captain Johnson led the Augsburg quint with 11 markers. RIVER FALLS 59-STOUT 49 In the opening conference game of the season the defending champions. River Falls, edged Stout 59-49 an the Blue Devils' court. A tight zone defense failed to stop the Falcons, as DeLong hit for 19 points with Benson peppering the nets for 16 tallies. River Falls engineered a 33-23 half-time lead and controlled the game throughout. Nylund led Stout with 12 points. RIVER FALLS 80-NEWBURG STUDIO 69 A visiting Newburg Studio team from Minneapolis found the great Nate DeLong too much to handle and the giant scoring ace rippled the nets for a 42-point total to lead the Falcons to on easy 80-69 victory. Benson and Gibbs came up with excellent floor games and the final result was never in doubt. Lefty Gilleland, former Minnesota ace, led Newburgs with 17 points. RIVER FALLS 68-EAU CLAIRE 57 The Blugolds from Eau Claire became the Falcons fourth straight victim, as the Falls team scored a neat 68-57 triumph. Four men did all the scoring for River Falls, as DeLong hit for 30, Benson slipped in 17, "Itch" Lindholm garnered 12, and Harry Gibbs added nine. Musolf, Emanuel and Proctor led the Eau Claire cagers who found it impossible to cope with the scoring antics of DeLong and Benson. RIVER FALLS 48—ST. THOMAS 70 A blazing St. Thomas quint ran away from the Falcons on the "Tommies'" floor to roll up an impressive 70-48 win. "Big Nate" kept River Falls in the contest for a time, but a well-balanced St. Thomas offensive surge gave the "Toms" a 42-25 half-time leod. DeLong tallied 25 points in the contest, which found him the only Falcon who could locate the bosket. Bury, Mauer, and Shonka were the big guns for the "Tommies." 119RIVER FALLS 49-SUPERIOR 52 Ted MacGregor led a last minute Superior rally which enabled the Yellowjockets to eke out a 52-49 win over the Falcons. The game was close and hard fought throughout with neither team gaining a decisive lead. Again Delong was the only Falcon able to score consistently, as the great center tossed in 26 points while his teammates were decidedly cold. Milt Krznarich and MacGregor sparked the Yellow-jackets to the close triumph. RIVER FALLS 48-DULUTH 46 Brilliant Newmen Benson stole the ball and arched in a push shot in the last minute of the game to give River Falls a sweet 48-46 victory over the Duluth Branch of the University of Minnesota in a contest played at Duluth. DeLong fouled out early in the second half after hitting for 14 in the first half. Benson took up the scoring burden and meshed a total of 20 for the night. Rudy Monson and Hill of Duluth gave the Falcons trouble until they fouled out in the waning minutes. RIVER FALLS 62-GUSTAVUS ADOLPHUS 42 Back on their home court after a three game road trip, the River Falls Falcons trounced a rough "Gus-tie" team 62-42. The visitors used football tactics in trying to stop the high-powered Falls team, but it was to no avail, as DeLong shoved in 21 points, with Benson, Lindholm, and Gibbs tossing in 12, nine, and eight points respectively. No "Gustie" could garner more than nine markers against the tight Falcon defense. 120 The Falcons ace guard, Harry Gibbs, drives in to score against Augsburg. Big Nate" jumps high to lay in another of his numerous buckets."Benny" about to connect on hi famous push shot. RIVER FALLS 68-ST. JOHNS 52 Competing in the holiday invitational meet at Mankato, the Falcons rallied strongly in the second half to whip St. Johns of Minnesota 68-52. Benson and Lindholm engineered the rally after DeLong was forced from the contest early in the second half by an ankle injury. Before retiring from the game, the blonde scoring ace had scored 26 points. Hot shooting "Benny" added 18 to the Falcons total with Lindholm getting nine in the last half. Veteran Stan Wil-farth paced St. John's. RIVER FALLS 63—MANKATO 56 Playing one of their finest games, the River Falls Falcons defeated the host school, Mankato Teachers, 63-56 in the invitational tournament. Scoring balance paid off for the Falls, as DeLong scored 15 points while dependable Charley Most scored 15 also. Benson hit for 13 and "Itch" added 10 to the Falcon total. Fossen played a fine game in relief of the injury handicapped DeLong. Sperlich and Fogelburg were the big guns for Mankato. RIVER FALLS 71-LA CROSSE 57 Returning to conference competition after the holiday tournament, the Falcons smashed to a 71-57 triumph over a good La Crosse team. The Indians mode it close until Benson went on one of his famous scoring splurges in the second half. "Big Nate" fouled out after scoring 17 points, but "8enny" took up the slack with 23 tallies. Harry Gibbs had his long left-hand push shot clicking and the veteran guard meshed 14 points. Knapton, Schwanberg, and Olson kept the dangerous La Crosse quint close until the final minutes. RIVER FALLS 62-AUGSBURG 57 A vastly improved Augsburg team gave the Falcons a scare before falling 62-57 to the powerful Falls team in a game played at the Minneapolis Armory. The great scoring duo of DeLong and Benson kept the Red and White cagers in the lead, although Augsburg threatened several times. DeLong ogain fouled out, but scored 27 points before doing so, while Benson riddled the nets for 18 important tallies. Johnson, Lund, and Sandberg were the Important cogs for the underdog "Auggies." 121Dependable Charley Most "hooks" one in as Benson screens. RIVER FALLS 62-OSHKOSH 59 River Falls managed to eke out a narrow 62-59 win over Oshkosh Teachers for their seventh straight triumph. The Falcons hung on to a thin 27-24 halftime lead and emerged the victors, despite the fact that their sensational scorer, Nate DeLong, fouled out early in the second half after being held to 12 points. As has been true so many times the past season, Benson took over the scorer's role and the sharpshooter hit for 18 scores. Charley Most had one of his good nights and came up with 14 markers. Ritchie led the fighting Oshkosh quint with 16 scores. RIVER FALLS 62—PLATTEVILLE 58 Sixty-two again was the lucky number as the Falcons disposed of the Platteville threat by defeating their hosts 62-58. Clamping a tight zone defense on the Falcons in an attempt to stop the great DeLong, the "Pioneers" saw "Itch" Lindholm break through the zone for 25 points. Nate managed to bag 17 tallies despite the tight zone. The Falcons led 35-34 at the half and held on for another close win. Murphy and Tellefson paced the "Pioneers." RIVER FALLS 90-DULUTH 80 In a sensational display of marksmanship the Falcons handed Duluth their second defeat 90-80 on the River Falls court. DeLong and company hit on better than 50% of their shots to race into a comfortable lead after a close 39-37 half-time lead. DeLong was at his best as the six-foot six-inch scoring ace dropped in 32 points. Gibbs tallied 19 while Benson and Lindholm chipped in 13 apiece. Duluth showed offensive power also, and Hill and Monson hit the net with regularity to keep the score fairly close. RIVER FALLS 55-IOWA STATE TEACHERS 53 A smooth working Falcon quint racked up their tenth straight win as they edged Iowa State Teachers 55-53 in an excellent ball game played at Cedar Falls, Iowa. Taking an early lead on some nice shooting by DeLong and Benson, the Falcons fell behind late in the second half as the aggressive lowans staged a comeback. Benson, however, shot the Falls team into the lead again, and stalling tactics protected the slim lead in the last minute. DeLong scored 22 points and controlled both backboards. Jespersen and Kochneff were the Iowa aces. 122Another two points for the Falcons as "dead eye" Benson shoots. RIVER FALLS 57-STOUT 59 Underdog Stout Institute startled the high-riding Falcons and snapped their long ten-game winning streak by nipping the Falcons 59-57. After working to a 32-23 half-time lead the River Falls team hit a cold streak and went six minutes of the second half without a point. Delong picked up four fouls in the first 20 minutes of action and had to be held out of the contest for a length of time. Nate came back Into action and along with "Itch" Lindholm, led a sensational rally which tied the score at 57-all. With 15 seconds left, Vaughn Stoi hooked the game winning basket from the comer and the Falcons long victory string had been broken. Stoi and Pollock played brilliantly for the Blue Devils while Lindholm starred for the Falcons. RIVER FALLS 79-EAU CLAIRE 73 The amazing Nate DeLong personally led River Falls to a 79-73 win over Eau Claire State in a game played at Eau Claire. A 45-35 Falcon margin was wiped out by a Blugoid rally which netted 15 straight points without a return by the Falls. However, De-Long and Benson along with Lindholm quickly regained control and the Falcons emerged the winners in a fast, rough and tumble game DeLong bogged 29 tallies while "Benny" chipped in Id. Capt. Sam Young ond center Jim Bos were the Eau Claire hotshots. RIVER FALLS 87—WHITEWATER 53 A weak Whitewater outfit found the Falcons too hot to handle as the blazing River Falls five blasted the downstate boys 87-53. This was another of "Big Nate's" nights and he rolled in 40 points in a scintillating performance. Gibbs added 17 from his guard position while the clever Benson contented himself with feeding DeLong. Reserves finished the game after the Falcons roared to a 53-25 half-time lead. Stalling tactics by Whitewater failed to stop the prolific scoring of Delong. RIVER FALLS 100—MILWAUKEE 75 For the first time in history a River Foils team hit 100 points as the Falcons smashed a big Milwaukee team 100-75. The game was featured by another scoring outburst by the terrific DeLong who rifled 44 points through the hoop for his season high. Gibbs, Benson, Lindholm, and Peterson divided the remaining scores among themselves while concentrating on feeding their sensational center. Bolz and lemmer shared scoring honors for Milwaukee who also resorted to a stalling game in on attempt to hold DeLong down. The failure of their plan is indicated by the score and Delong's 44 tallies. 123Newmen Benson RIVER FALLS 52—HAMLINE 69 An under-rated Falcon squad gave Hamline University quite a scare before falling to the "Pipers" 69-52. The Falls quint led 28-21 with two minutes remaining in the first half as the great Nate DeLong completely outplayed the highly regarded Vern Mikkelson. All-American Hal Haskins put on a brilliant exhibition of ball handling and shooting which enabled Hamline to grab a 32-30 half-time lead. River Falls couldn't connect the second half and the alert "Pipers" raced into a lead they never lost. DeLong fouled out with 10 minutes remaining and the Falcons' hopes went glimmering. He had 15 points for the game while Henry Gibbs tossed in 16 to lead the Falcons. Haskins broke the Falcons' back with 24 counters. RIVER FALLS 56-LA CROSSE 42 The champion River Falls cagers toyed with La Crosse as the Falcons won an easy 56-42 victory. The game meant nothing to either team as River Falls had already clinched their third straight conference championship. DeLong slipped 20 points through the net to lead both teams. "Itch" added 13 to the Falcons' total as the Falls ended the conference season with a 10 won 2 lost record. RIVER FALLS 69-BELOIT 75 RIVER FALLS 60-GUSTAVUS ADOLPHUS 50 After the tremendous scoring of the previous games, the Falcons found themselves extended to gain a victory over the rugged "Gusties." Led by Haldo Norman, Gustavus roared to a 22-11 lead, but the Falcons tied the game 25-all at the half. Lindholm led a second half rally which meant a 60-50 victory for the Falcons. Gustavus played a rough, rugged type of game, but it paid off as the Falcons were miserable In their shooting from the free throw line. Nate DeLong tallied 19 points despite missing 10 charity tosses while "Itch" Lindholm came up with 18 markers. Jerry Cady and Norman gave the Falcons trouble throughout the tilt. For the second consecutive year Beloit defeated the River Falls quintet for the right to represent Wisconsin in the NAIB tournament at Kansas City. This game was played at Stevens Point, and the fastbreaking Beloit "Golds" edged the Falcons 75-69. All-American Johnny Orr led the Mid-West Conference champs with 22 points while Ron Bontemps garnered 20. DeLong gave the Beloit boys all the trouble they wanted until he fouled out with three minutes remaining in the game. "Itch" Lindholm came through with a sparkling 20 point performance to tie Nate for high point honors. As was the case last year, the Falcons had trouble with the pressing defense used by Beloit. RIVER FALLS 86-SUPERIOR 39 It was sweet revenge as the Falcons routed the Yellowjackets 86-39 in a game highlighting the annual River Fails Winter Carnival. Besides avenging the 52-49 defeat suffered earlier at Superior, the victory clinched at least a tie for the conference championship. The Yellowjackets made it close for awhile, but DeLong started on another of his scoring sprees and it was no stopping the red-hot Falls cagers. Nate connected for 37 points in this contest while Gibbs found the basket for 20 markers. Benson, Lindholm, and Most played their usual brilliant all-around game. Fine defensive play by the Falcons stopped the Superior offense cold. 124RIVER FALLS 59-SIOUX FALLS 40 In a game played at Spring Valley for the Falcon Fieldhouse Fond, the River Falls Falcons ended their regular season by trouncing Sioux Falls College of South Dakota 59-40. It was no contest as the South Dakotans were completely outclassed by the veteran Falcons. Jerry Healy, a member of the 1947-48 Falcon squad, gave a good account of himself as starting center for the Sioux Falls cagers. DeLong and Benson paced the River Falls team, as they have done all season. RIVER FALLS 64-IOWA STATE TEACHERS 65 Receiving a last minute invitation to play in the NAIB tournament at Kansas City, the Falcons drew Iowa State Teachers, a team they had previously defeated, as their first opponent. The great Nate De-Long was never better as he led the Falcons to a 37-31 half-time lead. However, the Iowa boys played very aggressive ball, and the leod changed continuously during the last half. DeLong fouled out with 11 minutes remaining after tallying 29 points. Despite the loss of their great scorer, the Falcons battled furiously and led 64-61 with a minute remaining. Van Combs, a hot-shooting Iowa guard, cut the margin to 64-63, and os the Falls attempted to stall the remaining seconds Iowa stole the ball and went ahead 65-64. River Falls missed a free throw with 11 seconds left and that was the ball game. Back rowi Coach Hoy, Shlold, Voith, Engobroison, Managor Salbold. Front rowi Adamson, Hahn, Olmick, Notion, Solfort.

In conference games the Falcon nine played .500 ball which enabled them to tie Eau Claire for second place. Highlight of the season was the Falcons last inning rally against the conference champs, LaCrosse. Layman singled home the winning run in the ninth inning os River Falls nipped the Indians 8-7. Coach Sjowall's team played good ball but lacked consistent pitching and hitting. "Buster" Layman came through with some splendid relief performances to aid the Falcon cause. Bothun, Franko, and Feidt chucked good ball only to lose several heartbreaking decisions. Outfielder Jerry Siverling led the regulars in hitting, os he powdered the ball for a gaudy .350 average. Benny Benson played spectacular ball at shortstop and hit close to .300. The veteran Gene Cardinal covered third base in excellent fashion. Guith and Bob Olson in the outfield, Jacobson at second base, Fossen or Gordie Olson at first, and Don "Baldy" Miles, catcher, filled out the regular nine.

Back row: Feiler, Tobias, Thompson, Doiss, Lane Under the able direction of Oscar Sjowail, the Intramural Basketball program reached a new height, as a record-breaking total of 25 teams competed in the two leagues set up by Mr. Sjowail and the Intramural Student Committee. In the major or National League the powerful Lips, coached by Gordon Olson, rambled on to eight consecutive wins to grab the regular season pennant. Falcon athletic stars, Claire Tobias, Gene Cardinal, Eugene Deiss, Bud Thompson, among others, were the kingpins of the champion Lips team. The Sad Sacks finished in second place, as they lost but one game. Kenny Fuher and Oliver Lerum were the big guns all season for the Sacks. Other contending teams which finished high in the standings and which gave the leaders plenty of competition were the Five Aces, led by the Miles brothers, Dave Sauer, and Nell Mulhollam. The Whiz Kids, sparked by Pete Hendrickson, LaVerne Gust, and Don Rogness, lost a few heort-breaking decisions, but played excellent ball. A veteran team of the Intramural League, the Six Old Men, was another strong contender. The minor or American League pennant race proved to be a run away for the Trempealeau Sessions who were led by 6-foot-6-inch center, Earl Everson. The Heart-o-North finished second to the Sessions with a five won, two lost record. Allen Peterson and Dale Amundson provided the scoring punch for the North boys. In a surprising show of power the Trempealeau Sessions, champions of the American League, walked away with the Intramural Tournament Championship by edging the fa- vored Five Aces in the title clash by a 45-39 score. Trempealeau, paced by their big center, Earl Everson and sharpshooting Willis Johnson, advanced through the lower bracket with comparative ease, while the Five Aces encountered stiff competition in their advance,through the upper bracket. The Lips, champions of the National League, were the pre-tournament favorites but were eliminated in the quarter-finals by the Sad Sacks, who in turn were defeated by the Five Aces. The championship game sow the Trempeauleau boys put on a blazing fourth quarter rally which left the Aces in their wake. The big factors in the Trempealeau win were the fine rebounding of Everson and the nice shooting of Johnson. "Baldy" Miles, Dee Durst and "Pistol" Mulhollam led the valiant Five Aces in their bid for the championship. Although emphasis was placed on the basketball program, a number of other intramural activities were carried on. During the fall term several touch football teams competed every week in the Intramural Touch Football League, and the sport proved to be a success. A winter-long activity was bowling, also an outstanding success. Six teams competed in the bowling league and Club 21 and the Falcons emerged as the co-champion bowling teams. Facilities for ping pong, swimming, boxing, volley boll, etc., although limited, were available to interested students. An extensive Intramural Softball League is planned for the spring. The defending 1948 champions, the Blue Caps, have most of their team intact and with ace pitcher Cal Timm bock in the fold, they are favorites for the crown.

The highlight of the year for 24 of the WAA girls was the trip to LaCrosse in March for a playday. Girls from eight Wisconsin colleges attended the playday. The River Falls girls left in a chartered bus at some strange hour "between the dark and the daylight." The morning activities began at 9:00, and consisted of basketball, volleyball, and swimming. In the afternoon there was folk dancing and an Apache Relay. At noon a delicious lunch was served in the college cafeteria, followed by free time for individual sports. After lunch a general convocation was held with a stunt program, consisting of skits and songs. At the close of the day's activities, another general meeting was held to give awards to the teams and schools. This year a very clever sort of "trophy" was awarded to each school. This "trophy" was fashioned from a baby food can and lettered with fingernail polish. The trophy or cup would be a credit to any trophy case, or perhaps it would be more functional as an ash tray. This year each team was named for a flower. Tulip, Rose, etc. The 18 teams were composed of one or two girls from each of the 8 participating schools. A winning team was selected on the basis of points received throughout the day. The fitting prize for the high team was an assortment of flower seeds. The low team was awarded an assortment of vegetable seeds. All the WAA girls spent a very enjoyable day, with only minor casualties. For some of the girls it was the third year at a LaCrosse playday. In these three years the girls have made and renewed many fine friendships. These play-days are a valuable activity in furthering good sportsmanship and inter-school relations. Much credit must be given the LaCrosse girls for their well organized playday. We hope that through the cooperation of the schools these happy experiences will continue.Another WAA activity is the sale of chrysanthemum corsages for homecoming. These colorful corsages add much to the gayety of the homecoming weekend. Each spring a WAA banquet is held and awards are made to deserving girls. These awards are based on a point system. Points are given for participation in each sport, membership on an honor team, and membership on the winning tournament team. These points accumulate from year to year for the awards. Every Monday and Wednesday at four the WAA gathers in the gym for exercise and sport, but our real aim is the fun of working and playing together. 134 BasketballBadminton Softball Dancing Date Due MR 9’60 D»mco 2VJ-5370-75 , W75r, W | AUTHOR Wis.State College.
