NORBERT MANION JOHN MACDONALD
MUCH of the success of our athletic teams is due to the managers. The
tasks of the manager are varied and many. He must be the businessman,
the doctor, and the errand boy of the team. He is responsible for every article
of equipment which he checks out at any time. It is his job to arrange for the
transportation of the teams when they play away from home, as well as make pro-
visions for their lodging and meals on these trips. His task requires that the needs
of every member of the team he met, and that each player have all his needed
equipment. Then, too, his surgical ability is called into practice when he admin-
isters t0 the bruises, cuts, sprains, or other injuries of the players.
Few people realize the hard work, the long hours, and the faithful service
rendered the school and our athletic teams in this capacity by our managers, and
there are few, perhaps, who receive as little credit and distinction as do the man-
agers for their worry, responsibility, and long hours of toil.
This year iiNor" Manion, manager of the football team, and John MacDonald,
manager of the basketball squad, have met very capably the responsibility and
requirements of good athletic managers. These men have worked faithfully and
consistently from the first fall practice at every game until long after the final
gun of the season was fired. Both these men have had experience as actual players
of the game and this has been of untold value to the members of the team and
the coach. They have worked for one year as assistant managers in keen compe-
tition With other men of the school in order to earn the positions they have so
capably filled. Much of the success achieved by our athletic teams has been due
to the ceaseless and untiring efforts of iiNori, and iiMacfi

OACH Klandrud has ably piloted the Red and
White to a state championship in basketball
during his first year as athletic director at River
Falls. He won his iiL" in basketball at the La
Crosse State Teachers College where he gained spe-
cial distinction playing guard.
At the River Falls High School his basketball
team won the district championship for three suc-
cessive years. His team during his second year as
coach won the consolation trophy at the state tourna-
ment, and in the third year coach Klandruds five
lost to Stevens Point in the state championship game
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.
It was in view of this excellent record that Mr.
Klandrud was selected as the Athletic Director at
River Falls State Teachers College. During his CARL KLANDRUD, Coach
first year here as football coach the Red and White
gridders tied Superior for the northern champion-
ship. When La Crosse won a 12-6 victory over
River Falls they eliminated us as state championship contenders. La Crosse proved
to be the only conference team to score on .Klandrud,s welleversed eleven. In
basketball With Coach Klandrud at the helm River Falls won their second state
championship in three years
Coach Klandrud has inaugurated a forward- -looking athletic policy at River
Falls. He has organized class and interschool athletic teams in order that every
man may have an opportunity for athletic training. Tennis, baseball, track, and
swimming have also enjoyed unusual prominence under his guidance. His friend-
ly, sincere approach and easy manner of handling players have won a place for
him in the hearts of the men on the team as well as the entire student body. He
knows the game as few men do, and above all he knows how to get the most out
of his players. Mr. Klandrud is a builder and trainer of men, who places a pre-
mium on sportsmanship and clean athletics.

GEORGE WHITE JOHN DZUBAY
THE spirit with which the student body at any college supports athletic teams
is dependent upon the extent to which the cheer leaders are able to arouse
the student body. River Falls has always justly prided herself on having a school
spirit which has loyally supported her representatives in competing contests. But
school spirit is not spontaneous, and it requires cheer leaders with enthusiasm,
vigor, and devotion to spur the student body on to a high pitch of loyalty.
iiBuck" White with his uHave you got ,er, gang?" and his overflowing enthu-
siasm made the students yell whether they wanted to or not. His ability to rouse
the entire school body to action coupled with his initiative, his loyalty, and his
encouraging smile have materially contributed to the development and maintenance
of the traditional River Falls spirit.
John Dzubay has worked hard to develop the support of the student body.
It was his sincere appeals for student cooperation, his pep talks, and his able
leadership that brought the responses from the student body that helped carry the
Red and White teams through many crucial games. John was an essential wheel
in our cheering machinery, and he did much to keep River Falls boosters noisy at
Ramer Field and in the little white gym. Although Leonard Madison did not lead
cheers very often, he served the school faithfully whenever he was called upon
to do so.
The cheer leaders of this group have given their loyal service and devoted their
ability, energy, and time to the promotion of the traditional River Falls spirit.
They have always given their cooperation at football and basketball games, mass
meetings, assembly exercises, and parades. We extend our appreciation for their
