P D .alliilil Dobbersfein Jacobson Thompson OH Wills Deefz All Star Intramural Basketball Team INTRAMURALS 1939-1940 HE table tennis doubles attracted the attention of thirty-eight men. Orville Thomp- son and Dewey Paulson defeated the Junkman-Enloe team for the championship. Seventy men entered the volleyball meet and seven teams were organized. The North Siders, captained by Marcel Nelson, emerged as winners with Bob Platte's Bachelors a close second. This is a sport which is gathering a larger following every year and which promises to be a favorite next year. The mental giants had a chance to show their skill in the checker tournament. Mervin Gilberts won first place in the field of thirty-two contestants with Drehmel as runner-up. One hundred and five men entered the softball league and nine teams were chosen. Play began in the third week of April and will continue through the third week of May. The games are being run off in a backdoor tournament. This gives a team a chance to win the championship even though it may lose one game. Interest is high and all participants are really enjoying the sport. A track decathlon will close the intramural season for the year. Already thirty men have signed up and a total of forty is expected before the time limit expires. Each man will compete in each one of the ten following events: the fifty, one-hundred, two-hun- dred-twenty yard dashes, shot put, broad jump, high jump, discus, hop-step-and-jump, push-ups, and baseball throw for distance and accuracy.

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.

The first bout ended in a 4-4 tie, and in the second meeting the local boys were victorious by a 6M-2 K2 margin. Previous to this these boys engaged in various amateur shows and tournaments in Wisconsin and in Minnesota. The season reached its peak when seven of the boys entered in the Seventeenth District Golden Gloves Tournament at Red Wing, Minnesota. They were Peterson, Mills, Aldrich, Barto, Thoeny, Gray, and Daggett. Six of these seven boys survived the elimination fights and reached the finals, and Thoeny and Barto went on to win the championships in their respective divisions. By winning this tournament Barto and Thoeny qualified for entrance to the North- west Golden Gloves Tournament at Minneapolis. In the opening elimination round Thoeny was matched against Shaughnessy, a pre-tournament favorite and one of the top amateur welterweights in the northwest. Thoeny won a rousing decision over his opponent after flooring his man four times and once being knocked down himself. Barto was matched against Jack Thurly of Winona, Minnesota, a popular pre-tournament favorite, to win the heavyweight title. Barto easily outboxed him to win a decision. In the second round of elimination fihts both boys were handicapped by injuries received the previous night and were defeated. The only men to graduate on the squad are Mills and Thoeny who have established envious records for themselves in four years of boxing. Mills has a record of seventeen victories and eight defeats, while Thoeny has a total of twenty-two victories and six defeats. All of these boys were coached and trained by Mike White, a former national golden glove contender, and Dan Linehan, local chief-of-police.
