RIVER FALLS l4, EAU CLAIRE 0
IN the third conference game of the season River Falls conquered Eau Claire
by a score of 14-0. The home boys did not try many of their tricks, but were
content to rely on straight football and conserve their strength for the Superior
game. The Red and White did their scoring in the first half when oH-t'ackle
slants and line bucks by Klimper, MacDonald, and ClaHin carried the ball to
the goal line. Eau Claire presented a strong line that twice held the crimson
thunderbolt, "Winkie," in the shadow of their own goal posts.
Coach Klandrud started the game with his shock troops. After a thirty-five
yard run by MacDonald, the Falls played a conservative game, kicking 0n the
second and third downs. The Red and White pounded savagely 0n the Eau Claire
line throughout the game, but the plucky line play of the visitors held even the
mighty Clafiin on the six inch line.

HOMECOMING, RIVER FALLS 20, MILWAUKEE 0
IT was a smooth-working Red and White eleven that crushed Coach Percy
Clapp,s Milwaukee Teachers to the tune of 20-0. The victory upheld the Falls
gridiron tradition of never being beaten in a homecoming game. With the excep-
tion of the second quarter when Milwaukee threatened with forward passes, Klan-
drude men had things their own way. The Milwaukee line was smashed and bat-
tered by the fast-charging, shifty, crimson backs, Manion, MacDonald, and ClaHin,
who reeled 011' long spectacular runs. When the sound of cleated shoes died in
the distance, the River Falls eleven had marched through the southern team for

RIVER FALLS O, SUPERIOR 0
T HE Superior Yellowjackets had championship aspirations until the Red and
White gridders spoiled their homecoming by holding them to a scoreless tie.
River Falls played the best game of the season, never allowing the Norsemen
beyond their thirty yard line. The Falls, on the other hand, by clever field run-
ning twice worked the pigskin within the Superior ten yard line. A clever triple
pass, Claflin to Standish t0 MacDonald, placed the pigskin on the Superior
seven yard line during the last quarter. However, a costly fifteen yard penalty
stopped the crimson charge at this point.
It was the soaring sixty yard punts that left tiWinkidsii gilded toe as well as
his savage plunging, and his great performance in backing up the line that did
much to hold the Norsemen in check. Captain uBud" Manion rose to great heights
in this game as a clever and capable field general. It was his sensational tackle
that brought down 3 Superior ball carrier in spite of a two man interference in
