Selecting the prime sharpshooters from a field of 150 aspirants who turned out for the Husky rifle team, Coach Major Harry R. Pierce, himself an expert riileman, has molded a potential championship team. Until the squad rounded out into shape, Major Pierce depended largely upon the returning letter- men to win the matches for the Husky squad, but gradually the mediocre element was weeded out and the team was limited to twenty members which comprised the Varsity and the ROTC teams. Diligently practicing and improving their marks- manship, the target shooting aggregation prepared to make a bid for the coveted McKay trophy which is awarded annually to the ROTC team making the highest number of available points. This, the six sharpshooters proceeded to do and on January 30, 1938, claimed the silver cup. Members of the McKay trophy team were Captain Tony Lloyd, Joe Voellmeck, Bob Dent, Howard York, Bob Holland, and Jack Coskey. Defeating all other schools previous to the Hring of the Ninth Corps Area match, the Husky riflemen bogged down in the match and placed fourth, enabling them to compete for the national trophy together with four other teams. Only five teams in the United States being allowed to shoot for national recognition. Out for another trophy, this time the Hearst marksmanship trophy, five members of the ROTC team are gunning for points and Major Pierce declined to predict what the outcome would be. Particularly blessed is the Washington rifle team with the services of Captain Tony Lloyd, one of the outstanding shooters of the nation. His ability as a straight shooter has acquired him many trophies and countless medals. Lloyd defeated the best shots of all military schools at Camp Perry last summer to win the individual ROTC championship of the nation and was automatically placed on the select President's One-Hundred. Shooting 389 points out of a possible 400, Howard York threatened to dim the achievements of Captain Tony Lloyd. To prognosticate the outcome of the rifle team would be foolish at this early time. The Major is wise in desisting to comment, but he and Sergeant H. T. Gage, able assistant coach, have high hopes of victory. crop ROWD R. O. T. C.

I A tie for lirst place in individual scoring honors and second place in team scoring at the Northern Conference meet held over the Olympic Golf course, brought the Husky's competitive golf season to a successful finish. Carl Jonson's score of 148 tied that of Gill's, W. S. C. ace, for individual honors. Victories over Idaho and O. S. C. placed Washington third in conference standings for the year. Carl Jonson represented the University at the 'Pacific Coast Inter-collegiate tournament, held over the Pebble Beach course at Del Monte, Cal. Carl reached the serni-iinal round, where he was defeated by Roger Kelly of Loyola, winner of the tournament and medalist in the National Amateur the following Summer. Wes Karney scored a sub-par round of 69 to defeat Carl Jonson in the final round of the annual handicap tourney for the Sayles trophy. This event is staged over the University course. Jonson earned the right to have his name engraved for the second time on the plaque donated by Coach William Jefferson when he successfully defended his all-University title won the preceding fall. The ten men receiving varsity awards includedg Don Simpson, Bob Abernathy, Dave Norton, Neal Banta, Don Picht, james Longmuir, Bob Fissell, V. A. Vaughn, Carl Jonson, Les Carlson. The freshmen squad completed a successful season, dropping but two matches during the year, both to the Bellingham Normal school. Those receiving frosh awards wereg Jay Bloch, jay Sadler, Bob Phillips, Ernie Jonson, W. Kerr, Doug Dean, Tremaine, Neil Richardson.

Lamonte.Minor and Stan Silverman v compliment each other after an inter-squad match. Paul johnson, Jim Greenwood, Coach Augie Auemheimer, and George Grant look on. Silverman defends himself from one of Minor's lunges. Washington fencers celebrated a decade of consistent triumph this year when they won for the tenth time the Northwestern Intercollegiate Fencing Title. And next year's blade prospects indicate another team of championship calibre, with several effective men stepping out of the ranks. The .Husky season started on February 11, when a fencing trio composed of Lamont Minor, Stan Silverman and Paul Johnson travelled to Moscow, Idaho, and scored a 6-3 win. On the following day the Husky representatives met fencers from WSC, and again they scored a 7-2 win. Minor and Silverman returned to Seattle with untarnished record, having won all of their respective matches. Bruce Smith, Don Ide and Tom Tryon met the fencers of Shawnigan Lake School, Vancouver Island, and returned to Seattle with a 5-1 win. The fencing events in conjunction with the Minor Sports Carnival of March 12 brought representative blade stars from WSC, Oregon State and Idaho to Seattle, Lamont Minor and Stan Silverman again positions one and two on the Husky team, with t third berth being filled alternately by Jim Greenw George Grant and Paul Johnson. After some hig competitive fencing, Washington finally won the with scores of 6-3 against WSC, 5-1 against Ore State and 5-1 against Idaho. WSC's fencers had improved immensely since their first meet with the Huskies, making the competition much more keen. gn, ,lf f Front row: Rodney Townsend, Perry Palmer, Ernest Frolund, jack Knudson, Jim McEwing, George Harrison.

Captain Dick Greene In the season just past, their fourth year as organized volleyball competition, the Husky Varsity net squad looks back on a total of triumphs that is the most satisfactory yet in their short but pertinent history. In addition to climaxing the season by capturing the Northwest Collegiate Volleyball title, the Huskies scored in dual meets with Washington State, Idaho, Moscow Town Team, Reed College, the Seattle YMCA and the Washington Athletic Club, and also tallied to win the local city title. Perhaps nothing is more potent in establishing their consistent improvement during the season than comparing initial wins with those which ended the year. The Huskymen managed only to place second in an all-city round robin early in the fall quarter, rallying to earn the all-city title on February 16, playing the same local squads. The Huskies travelled to Pullman on February 11, and on to Moscow, Idaho, on the 12th, for engagements with both schools. WSC offered keen competition, and the Huskies were able to win but three of the five games, tilting the balance in their direction in the last game. Less difficult were the Washington-Idaho games, the Huskies taking three straight. Three stellar volleyball teams entered the Minor Sports Carnival of March 12. Besides the Huskymen, squads from Reed College and WSC travelled to Seattle for this classic of secondary sports. Washington won all games with Reed, and won two out of three hotly contested games with WSC, winning the Northwest Collegiate Title as a result. Coach Norm Kunde organized his '38 team without the return of a single member of last year's squad. Captain Dick Greene, a veteran of four years ago, returned to school, and proved to be the top man for the Huskies, on both defense and offense. Lefty Thornquist appeared without previous experience, joined the Varsity squad and established himself as an effective net man. Bob Stice plaved set-up for Captain Dick Greene most dependably. hn Knudson, Ernest Froland, Perry Palmer and rge Fukano stepped out of last year's freshman into the Varsity squad. olleyball lineup for 1938 included Captain Greene.
