RIVER FALLS 17, HAMLINE O HAMLINE, another Minnesota college and conqueror of Carleton, bowed to the crimson tornado by a score of 17-0 in the second game of the season. Their onlyeserious threat came in the first period when an attempted place kick hit the goal posts and bounded back on the field. But after "Seeg" broke through their line to block a punt, the tide of battle changed. ttMac', and uWinkien mercilessly ripped the Hamline line to shreds, scoring touchdowns in both the second and the third quarter. However, the feature of the game was the stellar work of the subs who made five first downs to Hamlinets one in the last quarter. Larson smashed through the opposing line for long gains. In this quarter Johnny Schlicht made several sen- sational runs. Much of the Fallst strength was due to the ability of these reserves to carry on where the regulars left 01?. HMac's speci- ality was cutting through ta 6 k l 6. His fifty-s e v e 1: yard run in the Milwaukee game, as well as his fortyefive y a r d ja. u n t against Eau Claire, show- ed his ability in getting through opposing lines. The best end that ever were a football suit at River Falls was "Seeg," the first down on punts, and the best pass receiver on the squad, as well as a. fast charging lineman.

RIVER FALLS 12, STOUT O HE first conference game was with Stout, and when the last battle cry re- sounded from the gridiron the Falls had tucked away a 12-0 victory.
