Thief River Falls Third Eleven to
Go Home Scoreless After Tack
ling Local Men.
DEFEATED BY 12 TO 0 MARGIN
Touchdowns Mady By Lycan and
Hayner, But Achenbach Lost
Ball After Going Over.
GIRLS' SUPPER DREW MANY
Crowd So Large That They Were
Unable to Handle All Comers
Game Attendance Small.
In a game replete with tense situ
ations, the Bemidji high school foot
ball team defeated Thief River Falls
high school Saturday afternoon by a
score of 21 to 0. The score would
have been at least 18 to 0 had "Tub
by" Achenbach not had the misfor
tune to lose the ball just as he fell
across Thief River's goal line. The
ball was captured by a Thief River
player and was put in play twenty
yards from the goal.
A. E. Nelson, instructor in agri
culture in the high school, acted as
master of ceremonies during the first
half and when his whistle blew,
Thief River kicked off to Bemidji.
The ball was worked back and forth
in the center of the field for several
minutes going from one team to the'
other. At the close of the quarter,
the ball was close to the Thief River
The minute rest allowed the men
helped the Bemidji team and when it
lined up again, Wilbur.Lycan carried
the ball over easily. In order to
get over the line, he was forced to
fall across the piled up mass of line
men. The umpire wanted to call it
"Hurdling" but after reading the
rules decided that the play was al
lowable. The teams lined up again
but no further scores were made the
During the second half, both teams
played better ball but Bemidji did
not come back as strong as "expected.
By hard work, Harold Hayner was
sent across the Thief River goal line
for the second touchdown. Captain
Bailey missed both chances at goals
although the ball struck one of the
uprights on the second trial.
In the fourth quarter, Harold Hay
ner was struck and the wind knocked
out of him. His position was taken
by Mayne Stanton but Hayner was
enough recovered after the game to
run to the high school dresisng room.
Stanton was used to good advantage
in some line and cross bucks. This
was the only change made in the Be
midji line up.
The Bemidji ends, Graham and
Wright, were completely outplayed
by the Thief River ends and time and
again were effectually boxed by in
terference so that the backs had to
spill interference and stop the ball.
When going down under punts, they
were usually blocked so that the man
with the ball got a start before be
ing tackled. The ends did good work
in handling their own forward
The five center men on the Be
midji line, Oleson, Elletson, Sulli
van, Titus and Achenbach outplayed
the Thief River line at times and at
others allowed their opponents )to
sift through. The line was good un
der line plays but trick plays and
forward passes did not hold long
enough to allow the back field to
get the plays under way. Several
times Captain Bailey was forced to
change a trick play into an end run
because the line sifted a Thief River
player. The line men were fairly
good on breaking through and tack
ling although several missed easy
The Bemidji back field of Bailey,
Ryan, Hayner and Lycan played good
football on straight plays but were
a little slow on trick plays. Had
the line jumped to position faster,
many of the plays would have suc
ceeded where they failed. They
were also handicapped by the line
failing to hold long enough on punts
and forward passes. Bailey failed to
follow the man with the .ball many
times and on the line over play
once allowed a Thief River man to
come around and tackle from behind.
Bemidji won the game fairly and
had a heavier team to overcome. The
Thief River men relied more on
weight than plays and could do noth
ing when the Bemidji team played
football. The victory waa well earn-

part he played and the part he says
former Police Lieutenant Becker

Rosenthal, the gambler.
"Becker told me," he said, "that he
wanted Rosenthal murdered, shot,
croaked or dynamited. At his bid

thal. I hid after the murder. I saw
Becker that morning and later talk
ed with him over the telephone. I
paid the gunmen $1,000 for Becker
and told them he said not to worry
but to lay low.

getting ready to throw me to the

Shortly before 9 o'clock he declared

Mclntyre, Becker's lawyer, early in
the evening, "that ie. would fiaish
this crass examination if he had to
