X: T 1 X- T INTRAMURALS 1939-1940 DURING the 193 9-40 school year River Falls has had the largest and rnost successful intramural program in its history. The success of an intramural program is not measured by new records in individual or team scoring, but by the number of students who take part in the sports. The slogan has been of a double nature-Participation For All-A Sport For Everyone. This theme was carried out under the able guidance of Clifford Juedes, who took advantage of the rather limited resources in the line of equip- ment and aroused the interest of a large percentage of the men in the student body. The program was varied enough to bring into prominence not only physical skills but also mental skills. The system of point awarding made it necessary for the men to enter as many events as possible in order to have a chance to earn an award at the close of the season. One hundred points were given each participant in any of the events on the program and additional points were given to each winner as well as to those who ranked high in the standings in the event. This made it possible for one man to enter all events and win the high point trophy at the end of the year without ever winning a first. The program began with the organization of a touch football league in the fall. Seven teams were organized and a round robin schedule run off. The Gophers, captained by Orville Grassl, took top honors. The other members of the championship team were Kuselik, Boles, Van Sickle, Kulbeck, Johnson, Hopkins, Ericson, Dempsey, H. Grassl, and Dosch. A horseshoe singles tournament occupied the off season between touch football and basketball seasons. H. Hull replaced last year's champion, "Doc', Schmidt, who contented himself with second place.

They formed the nucleus about which Clifford .Tuedes built his 1940 team. The returning men were Bartz, Gray, Hoagenson, Kroeger, Nelson, Peloquin, Peterson, and Trecker. New men who comprised the rest of the squad were: infielders, Hageseth, Kliszcz, Kelly, McCollow, and Ptacekg outfielders, Noyes and Hollander, catchers, Frolik and Toblerg pitchers, Olson, Horn, Paulson, Berklund, Drehmel, and Solberg. Last year, in the first year of conference play, River Falls took second place. Their record for the season, including non-conference games, was live wins and five defeats. Last year's team was coached by Mert Wulf, who acted as playing coach. This year Clifford Juedes has taken the task of coaching the Falcons. Conference games were scheduled with Eau Claire, Stout, and La Crosse, a home-and- home series to be played with each school. Non-conference games were scheduled with Concordia, St. Thomas, and Minnesota State Prison in order to prepare the Falcons for the conference season. River Falls opened the current season with an impressive 10-3 victory over Concordia College of St. Paul. The Falcons started fast, scoring two runs in the second inning. They added two more in the third, four in the fourth, and two in the eighth. The visitors' tallies came in the seventh and eighth. Highlight of the game was the splendid hurling done by Falcon pitchers, Peloquin and Olson. The former allowed but one hit in the Hrst five innings. Batting honors went to Kelly and Trecker, Falcons' first baseman and left fielder respectively, the former got three hits in Hve times at bat, while the latter got three in four times up. The River Falls nine was in poor form in the second game of the season, being trounced by St. Thomas College of St. Paul 12-1. Four pitchers, Gray, Peloquin, Olson, and Drehmel, worked on the mound for the Falcons. The Tommies were credited with nineteen hits, the majority of them received on ground balls. River Falls was able to get only eight hits off the slants of Maliousky and Wegner, St. Thomas pitchers. In the third game of the season, May 3, the squad lost a close one to Eau Claire 4-3. Peloquin turned in a good performance on the mound. The following day the squad journeyed to Stillwater to meet the strong Minnesota State Prison team. The Falcons came out on the short end of a 7-1 score. Olson turned in a good job of pitching, but River Falls did not seem able to get hits at the crucial time. Hits were rather scattered and as a result they were only able to push across one run.

Twelve teams of ten players each were organized into two leagues. Each league played a round robin schedule and at the completion of this the top three teams in each league were matched in a championship tournament, while the bottom three teams in each league were matched in a consolation tournament. The Grand Champion team was the Bucketeers, captained by Ed. Jacobson. Other members of the team were Diermeier, Wills, Doornink, Peterson, Dueholm, O. Grassl, and B. Boettcher. At the completion of the regular intramural basketball season an open tournament was held in the same sport. Seven teams entered the straight elimination tourney and Ed. Jacobson's "P.K." team took the championship in a close game with Dubbe's "Park Trotters." Other P.K. members were Deetz, Gardner, Wessels, Schroch, Berklund, Demp- sey, Bergstrom, and Dobberstein. Bowling held the attention of about forty men during the winter months. Leo Kelly's "Sparers,' emerged as the winner at the close of the season. Interest in this sport developed slowly, but at the end of the season many enthusiasts were doing their best to bowl over the pins. A swim decathlon in the spring attracted the attention of eight men. Bob Ahlstrom took top honors with John Schorta not very far behind. Recreational swimming in the form of splash parties is being planned for the rest of the year. Last year many students took advantage of this opportunity and a good turnout is expected at the forthcoming session. Table tennis singles were run off in the fall with Bob Pla-tte defeating Wayne Munger for the championship. Fourteen men entered the sport, and interest and compe- tition were very keen.
