The Blue speedster scored more points than his n] l Alma Mater and with Dim kelley. another ex-Caper, raced at will around the Maine cinder track. The season was more, however, than a triumph for a few individuals. In ad- dition to Gowell, Hurwitz, Waddington, Troland, and Cain showed strength in the track events, and Rogers, Sherry, and Ireland in the weights. A mile relay team composed of Gowell, Bottcher, Kelley, ami Hurwitz took part in an exhibition at Portland and gave an excellent performance, Vs far as tin ' season itself was concerned, there was little doubt of the ability of most of the contestants. With the cream of his varsity runners graduating in 1934, Coach t hester A. Jenkins must necessarily look to the Freshmen for incom- ing talent. partial answer to the problem was supplied b) the 1934 Frosh. In addition to team activities, members of the squad found themselves proficient at acquiring University medals in the Christmas handicap. For the second year in a row. a dormitory team raced through to the championship of the [ntramurals. Gowell, the outstanding entrant, was proficient in both the dash and hurdles as well as the broad jump. Me was beaten only infrequently during the year.

It began to look like the founda- tion of a Sophomore hierarch} oi victory. But the Class of 1938 had other idea-. n the face of it. the class didn ' i look to be as powerful as other Freshman classes which had preceded it. Their cross country fives were only average; and with the National Freshman Champion of the year before, the Sophomores were the favorites. Despite these handicaps, the Frosh entered the annual meet prepared to lift their rules, if possible, and if impossible, to give the best performance they were able. Before the meet was over, they had ac- complished all they had envisioned, and were, in their first year, champions of Maine ' - two underclasses. The transfiguration took place in the hands ol a half dozen capable runners. Led by the flashy John- UN Gowell, class president, the yearlings vanquished completely the soph running forces and hung up an easy triumph.

Bili Ke Freshman (J YON i loach FRESHMAN BASKETBALL ■ An opening season flourish thai died as soon as it hit Aroost ok gave the Maine Freshman basketball squad a season ' s record of eight wins against fi iur defeats. Until that Fateful Aroostook trip, the Frosh had losl only a single game, to Coburn, and had toppled four undefeated fives from their vic- tory perch. l!ill Kenyon and liis basketcers entered the Spudland on Februar) 18. That evening they were repulsed by Millinocket, 34-23. ( )n the following day, Ricker Classical Institute at Houlton edged out a 34-30 win. A 34-32 victory over Presque Isle. Aroostook champions, partly atoned for the first two losses, hut on the next night, the visitors were defeated, 36-34, by Patten Kcademj at Patten. Before the season opened, there were predictions of unusual ability in the squad of 7? men who reported to Kenyon. The first game of the season, against Higgins, seemed to justify the promise. With the score tied and only seconds to play, " Harpo " Swenson, Frosh guard, got the ball below the center of the court. The whistle blew even a- he shot. But the basket was good. In the succeeding week. Coburn, however, dampened Pale Blue ardor with a 36-28 setback. Totally outplayed by the smaller Coburn team during the first half, Maine ' s last period comeback was --tailed with victor} at one time in sight. Kents Hill, victor over Coburn and undefeated for the season, was an easy mark for the Frosh sharpshooters. Hebron, likewise undefeated, was dropped b) a single point, 36-35. Gilman High School from Northeast Harbor came to Maine with a reputation among small school fives, fter a good start, the team was worn out on the larger court and subsequently defeated. 21-14. Even at that, the Islanders held Maine to the smallest score of the year. Rumford, one of the outstanding schoolboj fives in the State, was taken 23-22. Winslow, for several years high school champions, were defeated with little diffi- •uln a 30-22 score. The season at Maine was brought to a close when the Frosh triumphed over I.ewiston High. 33-25. With the record of seven victories in eight games, the rive took up the Aroos- took tour with healthy expectations. In one game after another, they were defeated. I luring the entire season. Kenyon had trouble with his center position. Graham, a big Freshman from Brewer, started, hut was later replaced by Tom Lees. Neither man. however, was extremely successful. Bill VanGundy, Swenson, and Phil Rogers were easily the best on the team. VanGundy, despite his size, was a capable forward. Around Rog rs, at guard, cen- tered the hulk iif the Frosh attack. Swenson from the first game on was sure oi his position. 224
