vmlgvn rT--w3.n . "mm. WV, : Y defeating St. Thomas 20-12 and Hamline 17-0 in pre-season games the Red and White gridders established recognition as championship contenders. As the conference season started River Falls began her victorious march when Stout, Milwaukee, and Eau Claire bowed to the Red and White gridders in rapid succeSSion. Superior, the uWonder team of the North," was next held to a scoreless tie by Coach Klandrud,s eleven. The Red and White team remained in the conference race until the last game of the season when La Crosse succeeded in defeating us after a hard fought battle by a score of 12-6. The Kellerites were the only conference team to score on the Falls eleven this year. Letters were awarded to sixteen players: Captain "Bud" Manion, Captain- elect, Clarence Alfonse, Standish, MacDonald, ClaHin, Altenberg, Larson, Schlicht, Seger- strom, Jenson, Hagestad, Farrell, Luberg, Hunt, Keilholtz, and Bartosh. Letterman re- turning next year are Captain Alfonse, Schlicht, Larson, Keilholtz, and Bartosh. With the re- maining members of the squad, Klimper Hammer, Sutherland, Peterson, Thomas, and Krueger, back, prospects for next year look bright. +Da- CAPTAIN-ELECT ALFONSE By COACH KLANDRUD Alfonse was moved from the backfield to line and immediately won for himself a position as a regular wing man. Al was a dashing, smart, cour- ageous end who knew where to be and arrived there on time with a lot of stuff. He was a fine pass receiver, a good blocker, and a man who was down under punts. Very few kicks were returned, and a great deal of credit for the showing of this years team was due Al. He was always in con- dition to play and never was injured during the season. He will make another captain that River Falls will be proud of. CLARENCE ALFONSE One Hundred Nine xmnwmwm yf.
