7 Football

8 Football Managers Lewis F etterly served as V arsity football manager during the 1929 season. In the fall, the football manager is about the busiest man connected w ith the football team. Among his many duties are listed checking in and out equipment, looking after equipment on trips, taking care of the needs of the team in the way of bandages, liniment, etc., assisting the coach, and being of general assistance to the team. The football manager is chosen by Central Board but must work up to the position. Each fall, Central Board picks four or five men from freshman and sophomore applicants to act as assistants to the manager. At the end of the season, the two most satisfactory candidates are chosen as Assistant V arsity and Freshman managers for the next year. The best of these two is appointed V arsity Manager after servng one of the two other places. Joe Mayo was Assistant V arsity M anager this year while Leonard Schulz served as freshman manager and was assisted by F rank Holmberg. John McLaughlin was a Varsity assistant. For his work with the team, the manager is awarded a small M on a regulation athletic sweater. This carries, an honorary membership in the M club. The manager makes all trips with the team which makes the job one greatly sought after. Lewis F etterly was very successful as football manager, which is one of the hardest of the managerial positions to fill.

10 i t f NTINELI The Season 1929 The breaks seemed to be against M ontana s Grizzlies in the fall of W hen M ajor M ilborn called his football team together in September, a veteran crew and a large number of lesser experienced men answered the call and the coach soon formed the best football team Montana had had for inanv years but unfortunately it suffered the worst season of m any years. Although the team had lots of fight and was widely known for its powerful line that continually charged, there seemed to be something lacking when a final punch was needed to score points. The Grizzlies started the season with a bang, beating the Saints and J 1 l_i_l E

11 4ENTINIL tying W ashington. A fter a setback at Idaho, the tea m s punch seemed to be lost, for after that although it outfought and out-rushed most of its opposing teams, the w inning points could not be scored. A new system was adopted this y ear in the selection of captains. M ajor M ilburn selected a captain for each game. A t the end of the season Ray Lewis was elected honorary captain. Lewis was a strong center and an able leader in the line. In the backfield, Q uarterback Jim m ie M orrow was the leader of the team. Morrow was considered one of the best backs in the west and received all- A m erican honorable mention. J im m ie s ru n n in g and passing ability were an asset to the team and he was an able field general. Am ong the other prom inent backs were C arpenter, whose sh ifty ru n n in g m ade him a h ard m an to stop, and W aldo Eke-

The line with W alker, Speneer, or Peterson at tackles and Muhlick and M urray at guards was one of the strongest on the coast. M ontana opened the season Septem ber 28 w ith a 19-0 victory over the highly touted team of M ount St. Charles. The Saints came to Missoula with the intention of winning the state title, but they found a Grizzly prim ed for th eir coming. Milb u rn s men opened the game w ith a rush and tore through the S ain ts line and swept the ends to score a touchdown within a few m inutes of the startin g gun. Twice more during the first half, Grizzlies crossed the Ilillto p p ers goal for touchdowns and the score was 19-0 at half time. In the second half, M ontana s team v'as r

The next week the Grizzlies tra v eled to S eattle where on October 5 they su rp rised the Coast by scoring a 6-6 tie with the Huskies of the Univ ersity of W ashington. Both team s fought h ard on offense and defence, with the Montanans showing an amazing power on offense which kept W ashington ever on the guard. M erle Ilu ffo rd, H usky sophomore sensation and all-a m erican candidate, was the only m an of th at team to p enetrate the Grizzly line and it was Ilu ffo rd who scored the Huskies only touchdown a fte r a pow er drive in the second q u a rte r in which he had carried the ball most of the time. The follow ing week the Grizzlies journeyed to Moscow to m eet the U niv ersity of Idaho beef tru s t. D uring the first half the Southern California

14 HENTINEEl shift installed at Idaho by Coach Calland had the M ontanans completely bewildered. In the second half, Montan a rallied but it was in vain and the final score was 19-0 against the fighting band from Missoula. The team showed the effects of the two previous hard games and injuries weakened it m aterially. R eturning from Idaho, the first team got a week-end off while the second strin g engaged Interm ountain Union college of Helena. The reserves scored seven touchdowns to win by a score of F ourteen of the first strin g players were kept out of the game to give them a rest. Komoll was the Interm ountain star on defense. He stopped more than half of the M ontana plays th at were stopped and was on the ball all of the time. Retz sparkled for Interm ountain with a neat exhibition of c arry ing the ball. The hardest defeat of the season to take was that suffered at the hands E

The Aggies won th eir first game in 20 years from the U niversity w ith a score of Not since a 5-0 victory in 1908 have the Bozeman crew headed the Grizzlies until this year. The two point m argin of victory was gained by the expert toe of Iv ar Twilde who m ade two kicks for extra points a fte r both team s had scored two touchdow ns apiece. A fighting Bobcat coupled w ith U niversity penalties were responsible for the Bozem an victory. The Grizzlies then w ent to B erkeley and on November 9 met the strong U niversity of C alifornia team. This was the only game of the season in which M ontana was really outclassed.

In the fourth quarter, the same man raced 40 yards to a touchdown after intercepting a Grizzly pass. M ontana threatened time and again with long drives and several long runs. Morrow took the opening kickoff 72 yards and Buckley ran back the opening kickoff of the second half to M ontana s 31-yard mark where he was stopped by Morrow. Montana registered 8 first downs to the C ougar s 7 and gained a total of 221 yards against 144. The last game of the season was in

A fumble broke up the most serious Grizzly th reat on the 11-yard line in the first quarter. This defeat put M ontana in the cellar position of the conference w ith the U niversity of W ashington. M ajor M ilburn, Grizzly coach, will be in charge of the U niversity football squad in the 1930 season, but because of arm y regulations, will be tra n sfe rred a fte r th a t season E

U nder the direction of Eddie Chinske, a good freshm an football team was developed at the U niversity last fall. A few experienced high school m en rep o rted a t the beginning of the season but m ost of the squad was green and inexperienced. U nder new conference regulations outside com petition for freshm an team s is frow ned upon so no games were scheduled for the yearlings w ith conference schools. Three games were scheduled w ith M ontana schools and the Cubs gained one victory. The first game was the annual encounter w ith the B obkittens of M ontana State. A last q u arter rally by the Bozeman team resulted in th eir victory by a 19-7 count. The Cubs sta rte d fast and scored a touchdown in t h e first H o lm b e rg Frosh F ootb all q u arter and at the end of the th ird q u arter still had a one point m argin despite a touchdow n by the Bobk ittens early in the second half.

At Butte, they took on the School of Mines and lost, 6-0. The Cubs lacked scoring punch. W ith only a d a y s rest, the University first y ear men went to Dillon and won their last game of the season from the State. Norm al College. The Cubs used straight football to score four touchdowns for a 25-0 win. The squad from M issoula had things th eir own way d u r ing p ractically the whole S c h u lz game.

22 M ontana had one of its most successful basketball seasons of its history in The Grizzlies won 13 of 22 games played and gained recognition as a team to be feared. Coach S tew art h ad a well drilled squad th a t could shoot; som ething th a t p ast Grizzly basketball men could not do. U nfortunately, the N orthern division of the Coast Conference thought the trip to Missoula was too fa r for basketball games and would not include M ontana in the official conference schedule. How ever, games were scheduled with Idaho and W ashington S tate College and the Grizzlies took two games from each of these schools. Due to the fine shooting of the Grizzly floorm en this y ear it is expected th a t a full conference schedule will be accorded M ontana in UNTINiLl V arsity B asketball The first team composed of Billy R ohlffs and Eddie Chinske at fo r wards, Ted Rule a t center, and Captain R ankin and H arp K ilroy at guards was one of the fastest breaking outfits in the N orthw est. These players were supported by Johnny Lewis, Glen Lockwood, George Carey, Clifton Rohlffs, J a c k D oherty and Don S tocking giving the squad greater reserve pow er th an a U niversity team has had in the past decade. A t the s ta rt of the season, several of the squad were inexperienced but Coach S tew art soon h ad the squad organized and late in December, the Grizzlies went east. The first game of the barnstorm ing trip was against the N o rth D a kota S tate College. The first half was a deadlock a t 8-8 but the S taters ran aw ay w ith it in the second fram e and the final score was Montan a th en travelled to M inneapolis to m eet the strong U niversity of M innesota quint. The game was even m ost of the way b u t the Gophers sp u rted near the end to win at 27 to 24.

The second night, an e x tra period was necessary before N orth D akota won w ith the small m argin of 25 to 24. The last game of the trip b rought the first Grizzly victory. It was played at Valley City against Norm al College and the final score was R eturning from the east, the Grizzlies opened the home season against the U niversity of Idaho, a Coast Conference team. The superior floor w ork of the S tew art men gave them a 29 to 24 victory. Follow ing the opening victory, the Grizzlies w ent to Billings and met an independent team composed of form er college players. S te w a rt s clan won this game, The next night, the team was in Bozeman for the firs t game of the an n u al Bobcat series. A lthough the Grizzlies again lost the state title, the Aggies were forced to play th eir best and were also held to the lowest scores of th eir schedule in the games ag ain st the U niversity. C aptain R ankin sta rte d the first game at Bozeman w ith a w onderful exhibition of basketball and the Grizzlies took an early lead. The B obcats soon got th eir m achine und er w ay and led at half tim e, 28-12, as a result of w onderful shooting by Cat Thompson. The Grizzlies rallied in the second h alf and w ith only fo u r m inutes to play came w ithin two points of ty in g the score. A fin al sp u rt by the A ggies m ade the fin al score R etu rn in g to M issoula, M ontana opposed W ashington S tate College. M ontana opened w ith a fast offense ag ain st W. S.

S u b stitutions late- in the game did not stop the scoring as the reserves scored 14 points in the last seven m inutes. The next gam es w ere played at Helena where M ontana took two 19301

The first game was h ard fought d u rin g the second period a fte r M ontana had piled up a com m anding lead in the first but the S tew art clan won out, In the second game, the M issoula team started fast and was never headed with the final score, 63 to 32. The M ontana squad th en w ent to the Palouse and took the m easure of both Idaho and W. S. C. on th eir home floors. The form er was st opped 29 to 17, being outplayed in every departm ent of the game. M ontana made it a clean sweep of th eir conference games when they swam ped W. S. C. fo r the second tim e of the season. The C ougars tied the score a t 14, all near the end of the first half but M ontana pulled aw ay and the fast breaking offense gave the Grizzlies a 32 to 23 win. W hitm an came to M issoula fo r a two game series and M ontana copped them both. The second strin g played all but the last few m inutes of the first game w ith the home team on the long end of a 56 to 33 score. lientiniil In the second game, M ontana was pushed to the lim it. M ontana started with a lead which was held throughout the first fram e. N ear the end of the second canto, W hitm an tied the count at 31 all and brought the crow d to th eir feet. S te w a rt s men rallied, however, and came out ahead, 46 to 38. The second game of the Aggie series was played in M issoula before a capacity house. The lead changed five times during the first half but w ith a few m inutes left, the Aggies gained a lead which they never lost. The Grizzlies worked the ball in m any tim es only to miss short shots. F ra n k W ard, M ontana S ta te s all- A m erican center, was the sta r of the game and spoiled the U n iv ersity s chances of a victory. He kept his team going a t top speed throughout the second period to m aintain its n arro w m argin. The fig h tin g spirit shown by both team s in the first canto was increased in the second. The Grizzlies p u t everything they h ad into the game and were continually working into position for shots I IE

Their close checking, however, kept the A ggies m argin down to five points m cst of the time and m idway of the second half were w ithin two points of the Bozeman squad. The Aggies started pouring in long shots and ran the score to 44 to 32 as the game ended. The B ruin team cl sed the home season w ith two games against Gonzaga. The first w ent to Gonzaga, 40 to 35. Coach S tew art started the second team in this game and the Bulldogs piled up a lead th a t the V arsity could not overcome although they were close at several places. In the second game, the regulars again hit th eir stride and came out on the long end of a 55 to 29 count. The game ended the home season w ith a victory to m ake it 5 victories at Missoula against 2 defeats on the home court. M ontana ended the season on a trip to W ashington At W alla W alla the team split a two game series with W hitm an. The M issionaries took the first with a fine bit of basket shooting. They copped an early lead of 21-4 before M ontana s offense could get in motion. The score at half time was 27 to 14 and although the Bears spurted in the last half the game ended 37 to 29 against them. The second contest saw a reversal of the M ontana form and the Grizzlies came out ahead, 36-32, after a hot tussle. The last games of the trip were against Gonzaga at Spokane. Again the Grizzlies split a two game series to m ake it two games apiece for the season. The Bulldogs won, 36-29, a Grizzly rally late in the game falling short. The second game w ent to Montana.

The track m anag e r s M stands for h ard work, a lot of tim e, w orry and grief. In late years com petition has become very keen fo r this berth. T here was a tim e when choice of a m anager depended upon who could be talked in to taking the job. Now there are more men try in g out for the job th an can be taken care of by fo u r such colleges. This y ear the team was u nusually fo r tu n ate in having one of the most efficent squad of m anagers in years. H eaded by C a m p b e ll Arnie Campbell, the boy were up and at it all the time. Assistants were Robert Boden, W illiam M orrison, Robert Schroeder, and Law rence N eff. The m anager m akes all trip s w ith the team, assists the coach, helps w ith the scoring of meets, sees to the condition of the field, the state of equipm ent, and most of all, help the men to keep in the best shape by repeated and prolonged rub-downs every night. The m anager is appointed to his position by C entral B oard. He m ust work up to the position by spending at least two years as apprentice. The first year he is ju st one of the staff.

30 IfENTINELI V arsity Track A t the beginni: ng of the season, M o n tan a s track prospects looked more th an favorable. E arly in M arch Coach S tew art had 36 m en w orking out daily in the gym nasium. This included a large num ber of lettermen from last y ear as well as a w ealth of prom ising m aterial from the 1929 frosh squad. A nd then an early sp rin g allowed the team to be out on the tra c k sooner th an was expected so th a t by the end of M arch prospects looked b etter th an ever. But M ontana was not to get off so lucky. W in ter q u a rte r grade slips came out and w ith them came a dam pening of spirits, for the squad was cut down five sure point w inners through ineligibility. In the ineligibles were the two best hurdlers. Don Stevlingson, holder of the state record in the lows and jo in t captain of the team, w as lost along w ith Foy P riest, who was usually good fo r a first in the highs, and second only to S tevlingson in the lows. S tevlingson was also a constant p erform er in the longer dashes. The other ineligibles were Jim my Morrow, holder of the state record in the broad jum p and a good dash man, and F ra n k C urtis who had already jogged out two letters in the distance runs. This was the final blow for M ontana. There was still a ray of hope, however, if the new m aterial could be whipped into shape b u t in spite of the good w eather the squad developed slow, even the form er letterinen seem ed to have trouble in their events. The squad w ent through its paces for the first time A pril 25 and 26 at the interclass meet. Despite dam p w eather, some fairly good tim es were tu rn ed in but six of the first places w ere taken by men ineligible for com petition. The seniors, owing to the good w ork of P riest, M orrow, Perey and Nelson, took the meet w ith a to tal of 41 1/3 points. The juniors were a close second with 40 1/3 points. The sophomores and

Parm enter was o u tstanding for the juniors, tak in g first in both the 100 y ard and 220 yard dashes, while his team m ates swept all places in the javelin and a sprinkling of seconds and th ird s in some of the other events.

M ontana was ranked as an outsider from the s ta rt but entered m ainly to give the m en experience in com petition.

In this meet the U niversity hopelessly outclassed th eir opponents, taking every first and eleven seconds for a total of 112 points to 18 f r the Bulldogs. Emile Perev was again high point man, this tim e w ith 14 points but he was closely followed by the Grizzly captain. Claude Samples, who scored 13 of his team s total. This m eet showed nothing at ail except th at the Bulldogs were very weak in both track and field. Because of the lack of com petition the times were poor and taking all in all the meet was probably the least interesting of any seen on Dornblaser field for some time. Gonzaga was somewhat ham pered by injuries and were allowed to use freshm en to fill out their squad. Probably the best exhibition of the day was the half-mile run. The race was a battle between Carey of Montana and Simpkins of Gonzaga. Practically deadlocked until they struck
