score in our favor. It was W. L. all the way with Donham and Canfield leading. Another victim of the fighting Red Devils was Peru. This was the twentieth straight win for us, and oddly enough a 20 to 0 score was the outcome of the game. Big Burr Prentice’s line play was one of the highlights of the game. W. L. walked over, trampled, and pounded into the ground a hapless Frankfort team with a 41 to 0 score. The game was a track meet, with only one school participating. Monticello was the next on the list of W. L. victims. We won easily, but we were scored on for the first time of the season. The score that appeared in the newspaper the next day was 27 to 2. The paper also mentioned that Hudlow and Canfield led the backs, while Prentice and Swindler led the linemen. Page forty-seven

OUR FINE FOOTBALL TEAM Ist row: Swindler, Dietrich, Smith, Baumgardt, Halwick, Thise. 2nd row: Ritenour, Elrod, Mann, Donham, Canfield, Prentice, McCormick, Halwick. 3rd row: Coach Mackey, Guard, Capps, Ryder, Lang, Hedworth, Asst. Coach Cornell. {th row: Allen, Thise, Collings, Kizer, Isenbarger. The W. L. team started off the 1943 season in an encouraging manner by trimming Washington of Indianapolis, 38 to 0. The grid- ders kept their name in the “win” column the next week-end by slipping and sliding to a muddy 27 to 0 victory over Hoopeston. As you may have guessed, it was raining; but there was hard blocking and tackling. Bill Canfield scored all of the W. L. touchdowns. On October 1, W. L. knocked off their traditional rival from the other side of the beautiful Wabash. The game ended with a 14 to 0 Page forty-six

Jefferson, deciding that one beating wasn’t enough, tried it again. We gave them just what we gave them hefore, a 14 to 0 score with W. L. on the long end and Jeff on the wrong end. Hudlow, Canfield and McCormick were the backfield stars. In the line they were all playing bang-up football. Crawfordsville ventured outside their city limits for a night and wound up in West Lafayette, where they fell prey to our gridders. It was our twenty-fourth win over a period of three years. The Crawfordsville team crossed our goal line, and the game ended with a score of 25 to 7. Some authorities say that all good things must come to an end. It’s even believed by a few. That is just a nice way of saying that W. L.’s wonderful winning streak ended. We went down to Washing- ton of South Bend in a great game. Our men were covered with mud, and the score sheet was streaked with rain, but the score, 27 to 0, in favor of Washington, could plainly be seen. And that is how W. L. fared this year . . . eight games won, and one game lost . . . a beautiful record for a great high school team. Page forty-eight
