coach won the consolation trophy at the state tourna-
ment, and in the third year coach Klandruds five

by a score of 9-7. In football his success was just
as outstanding: During his last year at River Falls
High School his football team was one of the two
undefeated elevens in the state, such strong teams
as La Crosse, Eau Claire, and Central High School
of Minneapolis being victims of his proteges. The
previous year La Crosse was the only football team
that succeeded in defeating his eleven. At Marsh-
field during two succeeding years Klandrudls cagers
again fought their way to the state tournament where
they won their first game.

of his players. Mr. Klandrud is a builder and trainer of men, who places a pre-
