KLEINPELL PresidentLooking Forward In this centennial year, when the citizens of Wisconsin are reliving the history of the past hundred years, it is proper that we should be proud of the contributions that the River Falls State Teachers College has made to the welfare and progress of the State. Since 1874, more than 15,000 of its students have played a role in the making of this history. Through teachers, farmers, and professional workers, the College has influenced the vision and the imagination of the people of Wisconsin. But what of the future? Never before in the history of the nation has greater emphasis been placed upon higher education. That college enrollments will increase with each succeeding decade is a truism found in the professional literature of the day. The challenge to meet the demands of tomorrow was never greater. Will our College meet the challenge? Of course, we will meet the challenge! As in the past, the College will continue to be a resource for the young people of this area. Its program will be enlarged, its faculty strengthened, and its services improved. The needs of the institution are great. None is more urgent than an enlarged physical plant. Is it an idle dream’. ; to imagine the day when dormitories will house an Increased student body, when--, a new library will relieve the present crowded conditions, and when a physical, education building will provide not only seats for athletic games but be an integral part of an enlarged recreation program for men and women? I think not. The future of the College depends upon the present student body and thousands of former students living in Wisconsin. The loyalty of our students has never been questioned. Through their efforts the College will meet the challenge of tomorrow. olevenAdministration RUDOLPH A. KARGES EDWARD J. PRUCHA JOHN M.

Big Nate was never better as he led his team to a second consecutive conference championship. In doing so, the 6-foot-6-inch sophomore center garnered an amazing total of 618 points in 22 games—an average of 28.1 points per game. This average was by far the leading one in collegiate basktball the past year. The friendly lad from Chippewa Falls nonchalantly tossed in basket after basket to build up his tremendous total. Newspapers all over the country refer to the blond pivot man as "Mr. Basketball," "Mr. Swish," and so forth, but to his mates and fans, he is just "Nate," the same unaffected boy on the basketball court that he is on the school campus. Every team River Falls faced during the season knew that it would have to stop the strapping 205 pound star, if it expected to win; in fact, it was not uncommon to see two and three opponents guarding DeLong the entire game. Nate could not be stopped. A one-hand push shot from any spot on the floor was his main weapon, yet he rifled many points through the hoop, twisting turn shots, rebounds, fake and dribble-in-shots, etc. Not only is Nate a sensational scorer, but a fine defensive player, and above all a team player. His mates showed their respect and admiration for Nate when in the Winona game they refused to shoot. Instead they fed their star and enabled him to rack up 72 points in a single game—the third highest individual point total for one game in collegiate basketball history. The magic name of DeLong has done much to put River Falls State Teachers College in the athletic limelight, and his brilliant play has given the Falcons a "golden era" in basketball. We salute you, Nate DeLong—a true champion and sportsman! Pogo sixty-Iwo;Back rowi Managor Thompson, Longoll, Rognoss, Swenson, Glaunor, Lynch, Fintlad, Engoldingor, Manager Prescott, Jon sen, E.

The last undisputed championship previous to the 1947 title came in the fall of 1938. Coach George Schlogenhauf's 1947 Falcons smashed to an undisputed pennant on the strength of four consecutive league victories, finishing In front of the Superior Yellowjackets, whose one loss was sustained at the hands of the mighty River Falls eleven. 21-13, in one of the best games ever to be played on Romer Field. Continuing on their victory path. River Falb spoiled the Hamline University homecoming by whipping the "Pipers," 19-7. Eou Claire gave the Falcons unsuspected competition, but with an undisputed championship in the balance. River Falb drove to a 21-13 win in the Falb homecoming fray. With the conference championship under their belt. River Falb climaxed a highly successful season by scoring a 19-6 victory over the Kansas State Teachers College at Pittsburgh, Kansas. RIVER FALLS O-ST. CLOUD 6 A total of 68 candidates reported for the opening practice sessions, and from this wealth of material Cooches Schlagenhouf and Kolberg molded a powerful grid team-one of the best in Falcon gridiron history. The team was built around 17 returning letter men and a number of outstanding freshmen who gave the veterans stiff competition for first teom berths. River Falb opened the season on September 20 by playing the St. Cloud Teachers at St. Cloud. Although the Falcons lost by a 6-0 score to the "Granite City" boys, the game proved to be a great benefit to the Red and White gridmen. The contest proved to the Falcons that there was no easy row ahead and that they would have to Improve with every game, If they were to achieve any measure of success. Steady week to week improvement was the key to the success of the Schlagenhouf coached eleven. After the St. Cloud defeat the Falcons edged a speedy Stevens Point team, 12-0; romped over Stout Institute, 204); rallied to triumph over La Crosse, 27-14, and then reached their "zenith" of performance by smashing a favored Superior team. The Falcons were not ready for the opening game and as a result suffered a 6-0 defeat at the hands of a more polished St. Cloud eleven. Both teams were handicapped by a light rain which fell throughout the game, making playing conditions miserable. With only two weeks of practice before the contest. River Falb could not make their tricky T-for motion' work effectively, and the hard charging boys from St. Cloud thwarted all Falcon offensive efforts. After a scoreless first half, in which both teams missed scoring opportunities, St. Cloud took odvantage of a Falcon fumble to score the only touchdown of the game. River Falb fumbled on their own 14-yard line after stopping a St. Cloud drive, and an alert "Huskle" dropped on the ball. Fullback Stukel blasted to the Falcon 5 and Weitzel carried into pay-dirt on a neat reverse to give the Huskies a well-earned 6-0 triumph. RIVER FALLS 12—STEVENS POINT 0 Playing their first home game of the season, the River Falb eleven scored their initial triumph by whipping a scrappy Stevens Point team, 12-0, in a game played in a driving rain storm. The Falcons showed definite Improvement both offensively and defensively over their play of the previous week. In the second quarter, hard-driving Gordon Schock spearheaded a Falcon march which was climaxed by Schock's 9-yard burst off tackle for a touchdown. The second touchdown came mid-way in the fourth quarter when Arnie Feller, pile-driving fullback, picked off a desperate Pointer heave and went 30 yards for a score. Stevens Point presented two very fast halfbacks in Curry and Koehn who made life miserable for the Falcons. Several Pointer scoring threats were halted by the sterling defensive play of the Falcon line. Coach Schlagenhouf Assistant Coach Kolberg Pago ilxty.flvoRIVER FALLS 20-STOUT 0 In a game marking the dedication of Stout In stitute's new athletic field, the River Falls Falcons began their title drive by soundly trouncing the Blue Devils of Stout, 20-0.

The Falcons had too much speed and power for the Stout eleven and the Blue Devils couldn't stop the fast-striking Falcon T-formatlon. Numerous fumbles marred both teams' offensive efforts. RIVER FALLS 27-LA CROSSE 14 Playing under the lights at La Crosse, the powerful Falcons notched another win in their championship drive by defeating the Indians 27-14. River Falls took the opening kickoff and drove all the way to the La Crosse 2-yard line only to fumble.

The speedy "Auggies" did not have the height needed to cope with the Falk cagers and they could not penetrate the closely-knit Falcon defense. Note DeLong, continuing his scoring exploits from last season, meshed 32 points for River Falk, while Horry Gibbs gornered 14 markers, all on some long range sniping. Andy Cupka and "Red" Lindgren led the "Augs" with 11 points each. Actually, the Falcons won at the free throw line as they mode 30 out of 40 free throw attempts. RIVER FALLS 59-GUSTAVUS ADOLPHUS 56 A high scoring "Gustle" machine from St. Peter invaded the Falcon lair ond gave the local cagers a terrific battle before dependable Charley Most swished some beautiful baskets to give the Falcons a 59-56 triumph. The game was close throughout, with the final outcome in doubt until the closing seconds. The "Gusties" clamped a tight defense on DeLong, but Big Nate still managed to score 16 points. Most rippled the nets for 13 points, 10 of these coming in the waning minutes of the game, and it was his shooting that pulled the game out of the fire. The great Junior Skoglund (leading scorer in the Minnesota college conference) led the Gus-tavus team with 19 points, while his brother, Stewart, added 15 to the "Gustie" total. RIVER FALLS 35-ST. OLAF 53 It was 20 below zero at Northfield and the Falcons were even colder than that, as they fell before an inspired St. Olaf team, 53-35. Playing their first game on a foreign court, the River Falls team fell completely apart after taking an early lead in the first half. The "Oles", led by freshman "Ham" Muus and Adamson, stormed info a 27-18 half-time lead and then ran away from the tiring Falcons in the second canto. DeLong and flashy Newmen Benson were the only River Falk cagers playing up to par. Nate hit for 19 while Benny came through with 12 points. RIVER FALLS 52-LA CROSSE 41 The Falcons began a defense of their conference championship by tripping the La Crosse Indians 52-41 at La Crosse. Still not approaching last year's form. River Falk was forced to come from a 25-21 deficit at the half. Horry Gibbs had his famous left hand push shot working to perfection in the second half, and it was his long range shooting that forced the Indions to abandon their tight defense around the basket. The brilliant DeLong ogoin led the scoring porade with 24 points, while "Gibber" potted 12. Schwanberg, Indian All-conference forward from last season, led La Crosse with 12 points. Wally Lindholm saw extensive service in this game and his eight points and brilliant rebound work were vital factors in the Falcon victory. RIVER FALLS 62-STEVENS POINT 51 Although obviously tired from playing the night before at La Crosse, the Falcons managed to defeat a fighting Stevens Point five, 62-51. Again it was a second half rally that enabled the locals to win as they trailed the Pointers, 26-21, at the half and at one time the margin was 21-9. Big Nate, again, was the Falcons' king-pin as he tallied 28 points, despite the fact that he missed 14 free throws. He scored 19 in the second half to engineer the Falcon rally along with Benson and Most. The Point team fowled constantly, and they lost five men on personals. Little Tom Curry and Al Haidvogl each meshed 12 points for Stevens Point. RIVER FALLS 79-ST. OLAF 55 Reaching their peak performance of the early season, the Red and White gained revenge for an earlier defeat by drubbing the touring St. Olaf team 79-55. For the first time this season the Falcons came up with an excellent floor game, and the team was clicking in brilliant fashion. DeLong hit for 38 points and had good support from his mates. The big boy scored at will ogainst the "Oles" and would have tallied even more had he not fouled out of the game. Ham Muus won the plaudits of the crowd by his sensational shooting for St. Olaf. His 20 points kept the game from being a complete rout. Pago ixty nine"Oh, no, Mr.! You can't go anywhere now!" Big DeLong in jovial mood. RIVER FALLS 52-GUSTAVUS ADOLPHUS 62 The River Falls Falcons lost three players on fouls during the second half in a game with Gustavus at St. Peter, and as a result suffered a 62-52 defeat. DeLong, Gibbs and Henneman all left the game on 5 fouls and the "Gusties" took advantage of this to erase a 29-21 Falcon half-time lead. Before fouling out of the contest, DeLong whipped in 19 points to lead the scoring of both teams. Close guarding by Henneman held Junior Skoglund to 15 points, but the other Gustie cagers came through with decisive boskets. Cady hit for 10 after Nate had left the game and Stu Skoglund also tallied 10 points in the second half. With the exception of DeLong none of the Falcons could shoot with any consistency. RIVER FALLS 54—MANKATO 57 Competing In the Mankato Invitational Tournament, River Falls fell before their hosts, 57-54. The Falcons had only two days of practice before the tourney, and they were unable to stop the smooth working Mankato aggregation. The brilliant sharpshooting of Don Nelson, Mankato forward, swept the "Scarlets" into a 36-30 half-time lead and the fighting Falcons could not erase that advantage. Nate DeLong, as usual, led the Falls with 22 points, while Booty Deiss showed last season's form by pouring In 14. The hot shooting Nelson had 24 markers, 18 A scramble underneath Falcons' basket as River Falls wins 87-67. of them coming in the first half splurge. Dewey Olson, another Mankato veteran, added 14 to the Minnesota team's total. RIVER FALLS 57-GUSTAVUS ADOLPHUS 62 In the rubber game between the two schools, Gustavus took the deciding tilt from River Falls, 62-57, in a thrilling game at the Mankato Tournament. While the Gusties won the game, the Falcons' sensational center, Nate DeLong, outscored Junior Skoglund of the Gusties, 38-24. Big Nate fouled out with three minutes left in the contest, and with him went the Falcons' glimmering hopes of victory. As has been true all season, the Falcons could not present a well balanced scoring attack, nor could they play effectively on a large court. RIVER FALLS 47-STEVENS POINT 51 Continuing in their mid-season slump, River Falls fell before a hard working Stevens Point team on the Pointers' court. DeLong played despite a severe cold, and was not up to par for the tilt. Benson regained his shooting eye for this game and was high scorer for the Falcons with 17 points. Nate scored 15 before fouling out in the second half, while the two big boys for the Point, Haidvogl and Ludwig, scored 17 and 10 points, respectively, besides playing sterling defensive games. Pago seventyRIVER FALLS 60—AUGSBURG 65 A smoothly operating Augsburg quintet streaked to a 65-60 win over the slump-ridden Falcons on the huge Armory court in Minneapolis. The smaller "Auggios" used their speed to full effectiveness and River Falls' height advantage was of no avail. Benson and Gibbs kept the Fakons in the game during the first half with some nice sniping from the side. Ace Delong was still handkapped by a bod cold, but despite this he racked up 23 points for the evening's chores. Again Nate was forced out at a crucial time on 5 fouls, and this severely hurt the Falcons' chances. Hone, Carlson, Llndgren and Johnson sparked the Augsburg team with magnificent shooting and some brilliant ball-hawking defensive play. RIVER FALLS 82-SUPERIOR 65 Back on their home court after a disastrous road tour, the local cagers kept their conference record unblemished by blasting the Superior Yellowjackets, 82-65. Things looked dark for the Falcons as the Superiorites blazed to a 31-16 lead, with six minutes left of the first half. Milt Krznarich of Superior put on a scintillating set shot exhibition as he tallied 18 points during the first half. However, DeLong and company broke out of their slump and began hitting the bucket with amazing regularity to narrow the half time score to 37-32, and then smash to a commanding lead in the last half. Delong was never better, as the stupendous scoring ace rifled 42 points through the hoop. Benny Benson provided the spark to ignite the Falcons, and his 16 markers did much to pull the locals out of danger. "Itch" Undholm's rebound work was outstanding throughout the game. Milt Drznovich and Dominte Moselle were the Superior oces in the fast, rough-and-tumble game. RIVER FALLS 73-STOUT 38 A weak Stout Institute team was not in the same class as the Fakons, and the Red and White breezed to on easy 73-38 triumph on their home court. Holding the Blue Devils without a field goal for eleven minutes, the Fakons piled up a 40-14 halftime lead, and then coasted the entire second half. Stout attempted to stop the great DeLong by applying a tight zone defense, but the sharp shooting Fakons quickly broke the zone wide open and DeLong resumed his amazing scoring performance. Nate collared 33 to add to his impressive season's total, and the other River Falls cagers did some nice point-getting of their awn. Veteran Don Bredoht led the out-classed Blue Devils with 10 paints. RIVER FALLS 63-EAU CLAIRE 64 In a clash between the two unbeaten conference leaders the Eau Claire Blugolds snatched a last second win from the River Falls Falcons, 64-63, In a thrilling game played at Eau Claire. River Falls worked to an early lead, but in doing so, their star, DeLong, collected 4 personal fouls. With Big Nate on the bench, the five-wagon Blugolds raced to a 33-28 half time lead. Eau Claire continued their fast breaking tactics in the second canto and held a commanding lead with six minutes of play remaining. Then DeLong went back Into action and dropped In basket after basket to narrow the margin. Charley Most hooked in a beauty to put the Falcons ahead with two minutes of play remaining. Emanuel, Eau Claire ace, potted two gift shots, but Delong countered with another basket. The Blugolds foiled the Falcons' stalling toctks, and guard Ade Washburn swished one from medium range to give Eau Claire a 64-63 triumph in the last 17 seconds. DeLong put on a brilliant show with his 31 points, but it was not enough to give River Falls the victory. RIVER FALLS 87—LA CROSSE 67 Snapping bock after the heartbreaking defeat at the hands of Eau Claire, River Falb gave La Crosse a 87-67 lacing to highlight the Falcons annual Winter Carnival. Unstoppable Nate DeLong had another big evening, as the big pivot man racked up 36 points to lead his mates. Wally Undholm scored 16 points to continue his fine play, and his rebound work ogain was outstanding. River Falb hod too much height for the La Crosse team and the outcome was never in doubt, as the Falcons held a 45-35 half-time lead. Schwonberg, as usual, was the Indian ace with 15 points, while Horry Lukes tallied 10 for the Lq Crosse quint.. Pog» wvwtfyon RIVER FALLS 75-MINNESOTA B 71 River Falls kept their perfect home court record intocf by edging a bruising Minnesota B team, 75-71, in one of the best games of the season. As they hove done so many times this post season, the Falcons come from behind to grab the victory. The 'little Gophers", led by Wally Solovich, Bill Pepper and Joe Knoblaugh, drove to a 37 27 half-time lead, as the Minnesotan's hard, bruising play swept the Red and White off their feet for a few minutes. Good shooting and fine rebound work by Delong, Gibbs, and Lindholm kept the Falcons within range, and then Newmen Benson cut loose with four consecutive buckets to close the gap. Big Nate added some more quick points, and the Falcons were in a lead they never lost. Excellent play on the part of Solovich and Knoblaugh made the Gophers dangerous at all times. Delong came up with 27 points, Gibbs tallied 17, Benny swished in 14 and Itchy Lindholm added 10, as the Falcons flashed their most impressive play of the season. The defensive work of rugged Jack Henneman also was outstanding. RIVER FALLS 92-RIPON 68 A blistering River Falls offensive machine rolled over a strong Ripon College quintet by a 92-68 score on the Falcons' court. The locals had their offensive working smoothly, and DeLong and Company forged Into a 42-28 half-time lead. Only some pretty shooting by Big Kermlt Welsk kept Ripon in the game and when he fouled out In the second half, the contest developed Into a rout. Again De-Long, "the pride of Chippewa Falls," led the scorers with 25 points. Harry Gibbs tossed In 16, while hard driving Boots Deiss tallied 15 points In the last half. Langy Itch Lindholm batted in 12, while Jerry Healy scored 9 quick points to add to the Falcon's impressive score. RIVER FALLS 63-EAU CLAIRE 59 The Falcons not only gained revenge for an earlier defeat but moved back Into first place in the conference race by defeating the Blugolds of Eau Claire, 63-59. Although not playing the ball they are capable of, the Red and White managed to erase a 32-29 half-time deficit and then go on for a close triumph. Eugene Deiss came through with another clutch performance, and the 10 points Boots scored in the last half meant victory for the Falcons. Little Dick Emonuel, the Ecu Claire hot shot, tallied 24 points to lead both teams in scoring, while Nate DeLong, the Falcon ace, had 21 for the night's work. Beautiful defensive work by Harry Gibbs kept Denny Helixon, Eau Claire forward, bottled up all evening, while Wallace Lindholm and Jack Henneman were brilliant on rebounds. RIVER FALLS 63-SUPERIOR 60 A second consecutive basketball championship was the reward as the Falcons defeated Superior, 63-60, at Port City. The final score indicates a close game, but actually River Falk held a commanding 34-22 half-time lead, and had a 14 point margin during the last half. Superior cut the big Falcon lead in the waning minutes, as the Red and White attempted to stall out the tilt. Nate DeLong, the scourge of the conference, shoved 24 points through the hoop and Deiss and Lindholm eoch tallied 11 to continue their fine play. Dodge and the Krznarich brothers led the Yellowjocket attack which failed to overtake the Championship-bound Falcons. RIVER FALLS 96-WINONA 48 In an unbelievable game, the score read River Falls 96, Winona 48, or In other terms, DeLong 72, Winona 481 The great Falcon center tallied the third highest Individual point total in collegiate history as he rammed 25 field goals and 22 free throws through the net for a total of 72 points. His teammates made up their minds to feed the River Falls star, and despite Winona's stalling tactics, the 6-foot-6-inch ace tallied point after point in rapid fire fashion. Benson, Gibbs, and the other Falls cogers refused to shoot open shots, and although the dismayed Winona team had four to five men hanging on the huge frame of DeLong, they couldn't stop Big Nate from getting the ball and then swishing it through the hoop. The game also set a new team scoring record for a single contest, and it is doubtful if the crowd on hand that fateful evening will ever see a game like it ogain. Pogo lovcnty-twoLa Crosse player driving in to score against Falcons. RIVER FALLS 51-STOUT 62 A vastly improved Blue Devil team defeated the Falcons, 62-51, in the last game of the regular season. Bolstered by the addition of Ed Nylund, Vaughan Stai and Stible, the Stout quint came up with a zone defense which stopped the scoring antics of Nate DeLong. With Nate held at bay by the tight zone, the other Falcons could not connect from long range and their offensive efforts were largely ineffective. DeLong scored 13 points, his season's low, before fouling out of the game, while Benson was the only other Falcon who could locate the basket as he tallied 12 points. Bredahl, with 13, and Stai, with 12 markers, were the Stout sparks. RIVER FALLS 61-BELOIT 71 In a play-off held to determine the Wisconsin district entrant in the National Intercollegiate Association Tournament at Kansas City, the Beloit Goldmen defeated a fighting Falcon five, 71-61, on the huge Beloit court. About 4,000 fans saw River Falls put up a valiant battle before succumbing to the big, speedy Beloit quint. A pressing defense all over the court by Beloit hampered the Falcons' offense and "Big Nate" and his La Crosse opponent battle for rebound. they were unable to feed their scoring ace, Nate DeLong. Despite this, Nate still managed to tally 20 points, high for both teams. Benson played his best game of the year and scored 16 markers to keep River Falls In the contest. Brilliant Johnny Orr, Little All-American forward, led Beloit with 16 markers, and his running mate, Erickson, added 13. The home floor advantage proved too much for the Falcons to overcome, and the powerful Beloit team swept on to victory, after grabbing a 32-25 half-time lead.

SAINTS: REGULAR SEASON INTRAMURAL BASKETBALL CHAMPIONS A record number of teams entered intramural basketball competition this season, and the regular league play and post season tournament proved to be great successes. Mr. Sjowall again ably directed the intramural sport, and much credit must be given him for the success of the leagues. Two separate leagues were set up this year in order to provide closer competition for the various teams. Seventeen teams battled for the National League crown. A powerful team, the Saints, captured the championship of the strong American League, aceing out such quintets as the House of McCardle, Local Yokels, Five Aces, Brewers, Six Old Men, etc. Eric Von Schweinitz, Dick Bodeen, Neal Fellrath, and Archie Abbott led the Saints to a perfect season record. However, the CL Club whipped the Saints in the annual intramural tournament. A YMCA team led by George Relyea and the Stale Jug Quint managed by Arthur Nevala finished In a tie for the National League title. The National League was composed of teams which would have found American League competition too stiff for them. In the tournament following the regular season a big, powerful quint, the Brewers, smashed to the finals and then soundly defeated the Saintly Sinners for the championship. The Brewers were paced by hard-driving "Pistol" Mulhollam and the two Durst boys, Roy and Dee. They gained the finals by scoring well deserved victories over the House of McCardle, the Five Aces, and the 4th Street Gang. Meanwhile the Saintly Sinners, composed of former Frederic high school stars, advanced in the lower bracket competition by defeating the FFA, Heart-O-North, and the YMCA. Despite the fine play of big Joe Hunt, Russ Johnson, and others the Saintly Sinners could not cope with the powerful Brewers and lost the championship game, 36-24. For the second consecutive year a hand-picked intramural all-star team defeated the strong River Falls Rockets. The score was 71-61 In favor of the All-Stars, coached by "Butch" McCardle, and the intramural stars led throughout the gome, thus proving the capability of the intramuralites.

In conference competition the team played .500 ball, winning three and losing three. Two of the defeats came at the hands of LaCrosse, conference champions. The highlights of the season were the fine pitching exhibited by Clair Tobias and Duane "Duke" Sydow. "Duke" pitched a one-hitter against Eau Claire, while Tobias struck out 18 Stout batters in a night game at Hudson. Veteran John Storzer did a brilliant job of catching, and his timely hitting won many games for the Falcons. Bob Gulth, the Hudson ball-hawk, provided the batting power and his .364 average ranked first among the River Falls regulars. Gene Cardinal played sensational ball at short, while "Stretch" Vine shone defensively in the outer garden. A few more hits here and there are the Falcons would have been int the fight for the conference championship. As it was. Coach Sjowall's nine played a fine brand of ball all spring and prospects for the 1949 season look bright. Coach Oscar Sjowall will field a representative Falcon nine this spring, and with a little help in the catching and pitching departments. River Falls should be in the championship fight. Seven returning lettermen will be back, including the entire regular infield from last year, and there are approximately three or four men battling for every position. However, a dearth of experienced receivers and pitchers may hamper the Falcons. Veteran outfielders Bob Guith and Al Franko are expected to divide the pitching burden along with a host of freshmen prospects. 1947 Baseball Letter Awards 1948 Baseball Schedule Newmen Benson, Drummond Gene Cardinal, Chippewa Falls Opponent Where Played Returning Lettermen: Harlan Fellows, Lodi Albert Franko, Clayton Concordia There Newmen Benson—Second Base Bob Guith, Hudson Concordia Here Gene Cardinal—Short Stop Lester Horn, New Auburn Augsburg Here Harlan Fellows—Third Base Wallace Mehlberg, Caroline LaCrosse There Al Franko—Outfielder-Pitcher Gordon Olson, Chippewa Falls Stout Here Bob Guith—Outfielder-Pitcher John Storzer, Oconto Falls Eau Claire There Lester Horn—Infielder Duane Sydow, Madison Augsburg There Gordon Olson—First Base Clair Tobias, Ellsworth Eau Claire Here Dick Tracy, River Falls LaCrosse Here Gordon Vine, Neillsville Stout There Al Werndll, Madison Carleton Here Bill Wisdom, Madison Page seventy-sixBack row: Grilloy, Spon, Dooring, Woidnor Front row: Karnes, Vandermause, Rondeau, Johnson THE STORK CLUB-1947 INTRAMURAL SOFTBALL CHAMPIONS Other Intramural Sports The college Intramural program, under the capable direction of Mr. Sjowall proved to be a great success during the 1947-48 school year. Basketball and softball had a record number of teams and players performing, and this widespread participation proves the success and the value of the intramural program. The 1948 intramural softball league will have 13 teams competing for the championship, including the defending champs—the Stork Club. Other strong contenders include the House of Collins, McCordles, the Fourth Street Gang, and Seldom Inn. Each of the 13 teams will play a 12 game schedule and a spirited fight for the title is expected. An all-school swimming meet was held this year for the first time since before the war, and the meet was a "splashing" success. Eric Von Schweinitz and Ernest Glauner won top honors by placing first in two events. The 60-yard free style race was won by Von Schweinitz in the time of 0:34.4 with Glauner second and Kirby Symes, third. Glauner won the 100-yard free style event in 1:15.6, while Von Schweinitz copped honors again by taking first in the 60-yard backstroke race. His time was 0:40.6. Glauner captured the 40-yard backstroke event in 0:35.6, with Al Prescott, second and Symes, third. In the 80-yard free style relay event the team of Van Tatenhove, Newcomb, Mattson and LaMar won in the time of 0:46.8. The intramural swimming meet Is to be an annual event in the future, and much credit must be given to Mr. Sjowall and the athletic department for this Innovation. Page sevonly-ievonBack row: Stewart Middle row: Padilla, Rebollar Front row: Frazier, Bodeen TUMBLING TEAM Minor Sports TENNIS The Falcons are expected to have a strong tennis team for the 1948 season. Three returning lettermen. Bob Balfanz, Jerry Healy and Glenn Wallace, are tabbed as the leading net performers, but several other candidates are competing for positions and the squad as a whole will be a strong one. Bob Balfanz and his partner. Jack Wallace, captured the doubles championship in the state conference meet last spring and the entire squad came through with creditable showings. Several matches have been scheduled for this season and the Falcon netters will again compete in the conference meet. TRACK For the first time in the school's history. River Falls will have a track team this spring. Because of the great interest shown by many students, the college athletic department will sponsor a Falcon track team, and by the list of candidates reporting for daily work outs, the team should make a creditable showing. A couple of dual meets have been tentatively arranged, and the outstanding Falcons will compete in the annual conference meet. Many former high school track stars are included in the roster of candidates and the college's first track team is expected to make a representative showing. A tumbling and gymnastic team was organized by Mr. Sjowall this past year, and the squad gave several performances between halves of basketball games. It also made several exhibitions in neighboring towns. Members of the squad included Dick Bodeen, Maurice Stewart, Fritz Frazier and our two Mexican friends, "Monty" Padilla and Leopoldo Rebollar. Facilities for ping pong, tennis, boxing and for other intramural sports were available to the student body and the entire program was a complete success. Page seventy-eightR Club The R Club is a college organization whose members have won either a major or a minor letter in some varsity sport. Its purpose is to sponsor intramural sports and aid in promoting sportsmanship at all athletic contests conducted at River Falls.

This year participation twice weekly in organized sports such as field hockey, volley-ball, basketball, and swimming was so general as to make it possible to hold intramural tournaments for the first time. Perhaps the most exciting activity of the WAA has been its playdays. In February, RFSTC played host to girls from La Crosse, Stout ond Eau Claire. The clever theme of toy animals was carried out through the team divisions and as decorative centerpieces and ploce-cards for the luncheon held in the college cafeteria. Miss Bailey was presented with a corsage, and the groups of girls each sang their school songs. The afternoon was spent in in-indivdual sports, and 4:30 found the girls parting in good fellowship with memories of a happy playday. Page eightySchottr, Slono, Gibbon, Clymor, Sookomp.

BASKETBALL PLAYERS IN A HUDDLE La Crosse entertained River Falls In March with a theme honoring St. Patrick, which was carried out in all the days activities. The teams were composed of not more than two girls from each of the seven participating schools and given Irish names such as Monohan, Kelly, and Finnegan. In the morning these teams played volleyball, basketball and swam. The afternoon was spent in folk dancing, individual sports, and watching the program of skits presented by the various schools. At four o'clock in a general meeting the winning team was selected on a point basis. It proved to be the Rileys, including two River Falls girls, with 290 points. At the conclusion of this meeting the girls returned to their buses tired, but happy with another successful play day behind them. The playday at Stout was another similarly happy experience. These trips are made possible by the schools through the coopera- tion they extend in chartering buses to take the girls to their destinations. The WAA also successfully planned the sale of chrysanthemum corsages for homecoming weekend. Another similar project was the sale of hot coffee and donuts at the skating rink for the winter carnival. The last big activity the organization sponsored was the leap year dance which gave the girls that opportunity which comes only once in four years. Much of the credit for the growth of the Women's Athletic department is due to Miss Jeanne Bailey, the physical education instructor. She has never failed to supply a needed idea and has willingly cooperated in carrying it out. Everyone says, "Thanks to Miss Bailey for everything from loans of money to the delicious barbecues which made even the clean-up nights fun."

Another Puff-Pant Prom.Homecom mg Homocoming this year, 1947-48, fostered a lively spirit of competition, as well as the usual gaiety and the up-to-par enthusiasm which bubbled over in all the activities of the homecoming weekend. After a political tussle between Howard Kuhn and his rival candidate, Harold Shay, Howie was elected chairman of the festivities—and a competent man he proved to be. The election of Masquers' candidate, Janie Prescott, was preceded by one of the most vigorous campaigns ever staged on this campus. Thirteen college lovelies participated in the primacies, from which were chosen the two finalists, Jane Prescott and Kathleen Reid. Terry Hayes, manager for Jane Prescott, and Bill Hayes, manager for Kathleen Reid were responsible for this campaign which showered the campus with pamphlets, slogans, pictures and posters. The climax came when pictures of Kato Reid, on unique "flying discs," were dropped from an airplane just before the final voting. The usual Pep rally with its songs and skits was held Friday night, and was unusually entertaining. First prize for the skits went to the FFA; second, to the Men's Glee Club, and third, to the "Dirty Dozen," a new and lively offspring of the veterans' organization. Jane Prescott, attended by the four runners-up in the contest, Kathleen Reid, Lola Estenson, Margery Butler, and Elaine Peterson, was crowned queen at the end of the program—the official opening of festivities. The traditional snake dance followed, writhing through main street to the huge bonfire beside the Kinnickinnick. The homecoming parade this year was packed full of originality, with the "Dirty Dozen" excelling in their float and slogan "Bury O'Clarey." "Fold the Blugold" was the slogan for the homecoming game, and the Falcons came through victorious in their encounter with the Eau Claire eleven that afternoon with a score of 21-13. The alumni were guests of the faculty at a coffee hour following the game. A large number of alumni from several years ago were back this year. A dance that evening closed the 1947-'48 homecoming with the same enthusiasm with which it was begun. It was one of the most successful events in a very successful year at RFSTC. Page ninety-nineWinter Carnival From the moment its festivities began, the River Falls traditional Winter Carnival, held February 6th and 7th, promised to be a tremendous success— mainly, because there was actually enough snow for tobogganing and skiing and it was cold enough for skating at the high-school rink. Many of us will recall that other years bathing-suits would have been more appropriate! Terry Hayes, a senior from Cumberland, who was selected by the Student Senate as chairman of the 1948 Carnival, is the person directly responsible for the success of this spectacular event. Pago on hundredDuring the week preceding the carnival, the walls of South Mall were literally papered with campaign posters loudly and ingeniously acclaiming the merits of the candidates representing various organizations. After a pep-rally Friday afternoon, during which the candidates were introduced and skits presented, the student body elected Marlys and Tom Wilkinson as King and Queen —the first married couple to reign over the two-day celebration; Marlys and Tom were officially crowned King and Queen by carnival chairman Terry Hayes during the halves of the River Falls-La Crosse game. To the stirring strains of "March of the Priests," the royal couple In their purple velvet robes marched to their thrones. A blaze of spotlights accompanied the royal party across the darkened gymnasium to the dais. Betsy Welch and Arnie Feller, Gretchen Luebke and Bob Krueger were the attendants. Living up to the spirit of the occasion, "Big Nate" and company came through with an 87-67 victory over the La Crosse Indians. La Crosse has been the opponent in the Winter Carnival basketball game In 1943, 1947, and 1948. A skating party was held at the high-school skating- rink following the game, during which Jean McLaughlin, Fritz Frazier, and Ray Henry distinguished themselves by winning, respectively: the women's egg-balancing race, the men's speed sprint, and the distance race. A rather heavy, wet snow slightly Impaired visibility, but everyone agreed that he had a good time. Saturday afternoon those of us who weren't limping from the skating orgy on Friday night assembled on Hovde's Hill for tobogganing and skiing. Even those sturdy souls retired to the cafeteria before long to get circulation started again; this was accomplished with the aid of hot and sweet music for dancing "off the platter." The only casualties of the afternoon were a couple of sprained knees and a black eye. The R Club formal on Saturday night was the climax of the Carnival. Les Williams and his band provided dreamy prom music, and Glenn Wallace stole the floor-show with his comic songs. Everyone went home conscious of having had a good time and looking forward to next year's Carnival which we're sure can't possibly be eclipsed by this one.
