BACK Row-HMcLaughlin, Alfonse, Warner, Peterson, Coach Diobold, Case, Kahl, Biss MIDDLE RoweFarrall, Paulson, Schnur, Freeberg, Claflm, Nyht. Standish, Jensen FRONT Ronk-"Bud" Mam'on, King, Knerr, Mullendore, Larson, Landis, MacDonald BASEBALL EVEN veterans answered Coach Dieboldts call for spring baseball practice, ing the nucleus tor the 1928 baseball nlne at tuver raus. 1116 ned and 'v'v'iuu: diamond stars were handicapped by poor weather throughout the season, and as a result they were unable to secure the fielding and batting practice needed to put them in first class condition for the coming year. However, under the able coaching of Mr. Diebold the home boys were playing high class ball by the time the season closed. Led by Captain "Winkiett Claflin, the Falls mound staff was of high class calibre. ttWinkie" was the possessor of a lightning-fast ball and a sharp breaking curve. "Lefty" Case was the portsider of the squad, who had a world of stuff and a tantalizing change of pace. The third pitcher on the staff was Clarence Nyht, a dependable right hander, who worked as a relief pitcher. Behind the bat Norman Kahl, a high class receiver, completed the Red and White battery. There were six infielders on the team. mVicn Knerr and Clayton Peterson held down the initial sack in veteran style. Coach Diebold,s keystone combination was the class of the infield. Landis at second base and ttBud" Manion at short were smooth working fielders who were all over the infield, smothering hard hit liners. John MacDonald played the hot corner in stellar style, his strong whip cutting off many legitimate base hits. The utility fielder was Schnur who could play any inheld post, and do a good job of it. 'The hard-hitting Alfonse played right field while Larson, the slugger de luxe of the team, patrolled the left garden. In center field was the brilliant fielder, "Bill" Biss, who was all over the field snaring Hys. Mullendore and Paulson were other outfielders of tried ability. Although the lack of practice prevented the Falls attack from functioning in a smooth manner at the start of the season, they showed great promise as the season advanced. As a leadeoff' hitter "Bud" Manion was sure to get on base. When runners were parked on the bases, Larson, Alfonse, and Claflin could be relied upon to furnish the scoring punch. Games were played with Carleton, St. Olaf, Macalester, St. Johns, and the Minnesota Prison team. - One Hundred Twenty-Eight

HAMMER BARTOSH LUND BEERS SWIMMING t b 7 ITH the completion of the new 60 by 20 pool, swimming at River Falls has gained considerable prominence as a minor sport. Many Falls seals have received valuable aquatic training in the pool where a combination of crawling, choking, sputtering, and swimming is in progress all at the same time. An innova- tion in this yearis swimming program was the class meet between the freshmen, sophomores and juniors. The events were very closely contested, being won by the sophomores by a 42-39 score. Hammer, Lund, Bartosh, Klimper, and Beers were the outstanding swimmers in the meet. They carried the brunt of their class events and came through with several firsts. Plans are under way for expansion of the swimming program at River Falls. Next year it is hoped that tank meets can be scheduled with neigh- boring schools. In the forty yard free style Lund won first place for the second year class when he swam the distance in the record-breaking time of 263i; seconds. He was closely followed by Klimper who copped second place for the juniors. Crowell won third place for the freshmen. "Bucky" Bartosh gave the second year class first in the forty yard breast stroke when he beat Thomas and Kreuger who won second and third respectively for the frosh. When "Johnny" Hammer swam the twenty yard back stroke in thirteen seconds the first year class copped first place. Alfonse who won second for the sophomores was closely followed by Kreuger who ranked third for the frosh. The sophomores led the field in the eighty yard free style when Bartosh defeated Hill and Goodwin, freshmen, who gave him a close race. Displaying true diving form, Lund copped first for the sophomores. Kreuger and Schlicht kept the freshmen in the running by winning second and third place. Hammer plunged through the pool to give the frosh first in the plunge. Beers and Lotz gave the sophomores second and third in this event. First place in the eighty yard relay went to the first year class, Schlicht, Sutherland, Krueger, and Hammer carrying of the colors for the class of '31. However, in the 160 yard relay the sophomores turned the tables on the frosh. Beers, Bartosh, Lund, and Lotz furnished the punch that enabled the sophomores to win the event and score a close tank victory over the freshmen. One Hundred Twenty-Seven
