Horace Bushnell Patton, A.B., Ph.D.


Professor of Nlino·alogy and Geology

Dr. Patton, better known as "Bunse" among the student body, is a familiar figure in the library and in tbe Geology lab. The Sophomores first meet "Bunse" in the elusive subject of crystallography in which he is so far over their heads tbat they besitate to answer present to roll call. In lithology the Juniors become well acquainted with the proverbial "mistaken identity." In a word Dr. Patton is a rock fiend and can "lecture" equally well with either hand.

Victor Zeigler, A.B., A.M.

0'1', :;S;:;, TBII Associate Professor of Geology

It has been suggested that at least double credit be given for all bis courses, for the amount of material he can expound in one period compares to the expostulations of some of his colleagues in the same interim as (X) : O. Victor recently lowered bis established batting average with the frosh by several thousandths of a per cent when be began springing unannounced quizzes in General Geology. The rest of us sincerely hope that Germany's loyal press-agent will not exhibit the poor judgment of extending this practice to other than freshmen courses.

Harry J. Wolf, E.M.

TEll Professor of 1Ilfining


, I

Wolf knows everything there is to be known about the Mining game from ringing suckers into a million dollar corporation on a five-dollar mine to freezing out a lease r when he strikes a pay streak by running a joker in hi s contract. These things cause the mine accounters and surveyors to harbor a sneaking suspicion that they have in their midst a "Wolf" in sheep's clothing. He holds the record for spreading the least amount of subject-matter over the greatest amount of space and if his different courses were not numbered, DO one would be able to distinguish which one be was attending.

K~, 1'BII, ~S

Associate Professor 0/ Jl[pta/lurg.l'

"King Bill" is a metallurgist and as far as known has never been bothered by the rough Seniors. The King's research is handicapped by the lack of a small boy to check minutely detailed bills. "A week from some rainy Tuesday" the King will publish a treatise on "The Sarcasm Curve as Applied to Metallurgy." Did the King's good nature suffer when Doc Fleck left?






rl ssistant Prol essor 0/ Civil Ellgineerillg

Prof. Showman is king of the Testing l ab.; briquettes and test-pieces being loyal subjects of this august ruler. Fairness reigns supreme in Harry Munson's domain. During the summer he acquires a little exercise showing the Freshmen the mysteries of surveying. As a pastime this wizard of the briquettes has placed mental gymnastics in the column headed "Fine Arts." Why bother with a log book or a slip-stick? Mental division, multiplication, squaring, cubing and even taking of logs seems second nature when a Mechanics problem is at hand .

George E. F. Sherwood, A.B., A.1\1.

Associate PI-oj'I'SSOr of Motliematics

"Fluffy" is associate professor of Mathematics. This is not usuallv interpreted as meaning president, but during the past two years the Mines equivalent has been president sub rosa. The dignity required by this position can well be imagined. Probably "Blonde" is best known outside of class for his famous didacticisms on the well known game of "sluff," which are delivered free of charge or provocation; whenever the psychologists convene. "Blonde" is a recognized authority on the styles in hats and collars.

Claude C. Van Nuys, B.S., E.M., A.M.

Professor o] Physics

Van Nuys is a new man this year, having relieved the stud-ent body of a great burden by taking the place formerly occupied by L. F. Miller. He comes here with a good reputation and has been living up to it ever since. His hobby is filling the blackboard with one integration. Besides being able to teach all phases of Physics, he can write a book on the mysteries of alternating cu rrents.

Charles R. Burger, Ph.B., A.B.

lI.'l'lI., q,B.K Professor o] Nlath(,l/lati~s

"Ma" is the head of the Matb. department and the cause of many sleepless nights to Sophomores, some trying to differentiate while others are wondering who ties his purple tie every morning. His chief occupation outside of the class-room is milking the cow and feeding the chickens. It is surmised that "Ma" must have taken Wolf 's mine accounting course and applied it to keeping his grades straight (a zero equals a TO or vice versa as required to balance the personal equation).


Frederick W. Lucht, J r., B.E.

l nstructor in Mechanical Engineering

No, not the reincarnation of Ichabod Crane, but a junior member of the M. E. department to whose teachings many of us are exposed. His strongest point is the description of sawdust burning boilers, while his weakest is the piercing point. He astounds the Freshmen by showing them in how many different ways one can draw a straight line. It is a usual occurrence to find Lucht following Hawley around in the Junior drawing room. A Freshman's dream-Lucht being called to the fatherland to fight for the Kaiser.

Ransom Smith Hawley, B.S., M.E.


Professor of Mechanical Engineering

He fills all of the requirements of a good professor. Of the many facts that show his efficiency one is Contrast. He is a strong booster for the students and is seen at all mass meetings. If anyone is in doubt as to whether they should go out for athletics or not a consultation with Ransom is most heartily advised.

Ralph R. Knowles, B.S.

Instructor in Electrical and Mr chanical Enginl'e1·ing and Mining

Ralph has been with us as a friend (?) as well as a faculty member for so long that anything we do must be proved to be correct "for the sake of argument." The familiar "OH,

vVELL" in a fog horn tone seems to meet the approval of its originator. Even the meekest in !

our midst have become very adept at expressing their opinions of the subject at hand in a most J fo rceful manner under his guidance. In all, Ralph is the "Handy Man" in any line about the

James C. Roberts, Ph.B.

Professor of Safety Engineering

"Doc" has an ever welcoming salute and "good morning gentlemen" for all his classes and seems to have the human side of life more at heart than anyone else of the faculty. He has brought about the only free and first-class advertising the school has had. He is one of the few men here whose time is yours for the asking and does not value any information he may give at one dollar a word. "Doc" doesn't profess to have the only course in the school or to be a walking encyclopedia of mining details, but when it comes to "Safety First" he's there.




B.M.E., A.C.

Assistant Professor ill Cliemistrv

"Tiny" bears out the old saying-"small, but mighty." He is very alert to see that all disturbances are squelched at first sight. This, we think, is merely a force of habit, gained in training the twins at home. In the General Chern. room behind his capacious desk he might be looked upon by the frosh as Lavoisier the second. His favorite pastime is acting as an official at Track Meets. Though he studied in "der Vaterland" he still does not trust a single Test, but runs everything in duplicate.

John C.


B.S., A.M.

A ssistant Professor of C h emistry

According to the Tech. Chern. class, "Dad" must have been a wonder of a brickmaker in his early days. Now, however, he is our leading dispenser of Chemical knowledge to the frosh and, despite his care-free methods of running experiments, shows a remarkable propensity for checking results and telling Sunday School stories to the f rosh at the same time. His greatest delight, next to chewing the rag, is sitting in concentrated sulfuric acid and subsequently going home in his overcoat and B. V. D.'s.


Carrol George Dolman, A.B.

Assistant Professor of linglish nn d lV/ad!'rll Languages

A new man on the faculty who has fitted well into the spirit of the school. He follows athletics closely and between seasons specializes in the indoor sports of billiards and chess. The Spanish department has been placed on a unique basis by this famous tongue twister, Spanish now being a favorite elective for Seniors. Dolman has made a special study of exemption from examinations, but is too modest to claim perfection for his ystern,

T. C. Doolittle


"Cart" is the little fellow we have to pay our fines to in order to come to this establishment.

He keeps himself locked in a steel cage during working hours; maybe he thinks that safer. The law regarding tuition is his hobby; be careful or he'll get you.

Fred G. Carter, A.B.

Athletic Director

"Coach" is a new man at "Mines," but is already well known and well liked by the students.

He had a big job ahead of him as athletic director, but has made good. The coach is a v e rv pleasing fellow to look at; but go no farther, girls, he's hooked. He has a habit of collecting odd relics when starting on athletic trips. Some say he sells them to the bewhiskered men from Jerusalem; others, that he decorates the T'ramwav depot with them.

"Abe" is our representative from the sunny land of band-organs and spaghetti and maintains that the only reason the Austrian Empire still stands is his personal absence from the front. "Mose" is "Cap" Kinsley's faithful follower, and "Cap" would be more likely.to appeal' without his shadow than with" Abe" missing. As an ass ayer "Abe" shines, starting his fire two days ahead of time to be sure his furnace will be properly heated and then leaving the lab. adorned in soot and coal dust, when he would easily pass for an aspiring minstrel.

Tom H. Allan sen

Junior Smoker Committee. Mandolin Club.

"Dcke" is a plugger. He is accused of rushing the Tau Beres, but "Deke" pleads not guilty.

Two things have been suggested for "Deke": first, that he smile just a little once in awhile, and second, that he try sleeping at night instead of during "efficiency" lectures. It is hard to tell whether "Deke" argues for pleasure or for knowledge or just from habit. "Deke's" hobby is the mandolin, at which he stars.

Harry Earl Boot nerr, @T "DEWEY"

"Dewey" is no longer a sojourner in the metropolis of Golden. No one seems to know what the attraction is, but "Dewey" says "mum's the word" and continues his daily trips to Denver. It is rumored that he will be Wolf's right-hand man when it comes to administering tbe military affairs of the school. "Dewey" makes a hit with tbe ladies and at the same time batting high with tbe fellows.

As soon as Luther]. cut his wisdom teeth he decided to emigrate from Emporia, Kansas, and after trying his wings at Case, took up his abode in Golden. Solomon in all his glory could nol be compared with L J. when arrayed for one of his frequent invasions of Denver.

"Tu tf y," our ivory soap Rotation expert, was born at a very tender age in Leadville and J

after passing through the Mellin's Food stage began to acquire a great self esteem for his own ~

achievements and which met with no serious opposition during his first two years with us. .~

"King Bill," however, insisted that even a good assaye r like "Cris" could not get through the I course by instructing the others and spending the rest of the time eating candy at the club.

After all we find a kind heart and a pleasant smile following him always and we are sure that

Leadville is equally as proud of its prodigy as "Dorsey" is of his old chum. I

He is ODe of the fastest little base hall players Mines ever turned out. With the ladies "Dick" has no competitor; we all step aside for him. The thing that annoys him most is to have some one say, "He can't go bye-bye tonight." He has a quick and ready retort for any sally made against him, though sometimes he neglects to take the barbs off. Taking him all in all, however, "Dick" is a regular fellow.

Robert Woodward Gibson



He is a boy from the sunny south with a sunny disposition. There are only a few things that make him sore; for instance, a casual reference: "The Chattanooga ball team is last again," or just tell him, "Gib, you're in love." Of course he really isn't in love-his field spreads over too wide an area for that. Oh! my, yes. Going from the romantic to the more serious side of his life: Gib is a student who works hard for everything he gets here. If that means anything, he will get there.

"Cap." is an enthusiast in military pursuits and is First Lieutenant of the Engineers Corps.

There is some attraction which draws "Cap." to Denver at almost any time regardless of such mere incidentals as classes. "Cap." easily holds the long record of the Junior Mexican Athletic Association, but in spite of "Abe" and a II other handicaps he still manages to get by.

"Porky," we are pleased to relate, has changed affections from the "benzine ring" to the "Golden Arch." Henceforth he may be seen taking dip and strike measurements, tracing faults, and plotting anticlines. This change of heart may perhaps be accounted for as being due to his trip to Loveland last summer. "Sluff" and three cushion billiards claim their share of his spare time. His consistent good nature has won for "Porky" many friends during his time at school.

A number of the present Sophomore class assembled in September, 1915, to help form a Freshman class of about for tv members. The roll has diminished considerably since then, though there have been many recruits from other institutions to fill the gap's left vacant by those who have fallen by the wayside. A fewhave been side-tracked by matrimony and quite a few have been discouragd by a lack of appreciation on the part of the faculty, but about twenty have managed to survive and they, with a dozen others, constitute the present class.

~ We were delightfully entertained by Professor and ]\lIrs. C. C. Van Nuys on

~ February 9, 1917. Their kindness was deeplv appreciated by the class.

i~ It seems that social functions have been somewhat neglected, but several members I

.!~.::' of the class have won the hearts of fair Golden maidens and attend the pictu re show I

~ regularly on Friday evenings.

,t£~ There have been and are many good athletes in the class, five having made their

,~ .. , varsity letter already. They are Coulter and Miller in basketball, Peterson and String- f I

~ ham in football and C. M. Schneider in both football and baseball. The Freshman

c{ football team, with Peterson as captain, made an excellent showing and gave the varsity ~

,; lots of good practice. Trips were taken to Ft. Lyons, Colo., and to Cheyenne, Wyo., ~

.~ and both were thoroughly enjoyed by all. At Ft. Lyons the game resulted in a score of. ~I

~ 2J to 0 in our favor, and at Cheyenne it was 14 to 0, also in our favor. ,I;

I As Sophomores the class got a poor start by going through the creek, much to the IX~

t!~ delightof their opponents, the frosh, but in view of the comparative sizes of the two

i classes and the fact that the fresh were tied up in the barbecue, we do not feel ashamed. ,',!:l.

iVlulford was elected class president and everything has moved along quietly this year. I

I~I Several good students, as well as the athletes mentioned before, have developed and we ~;,: !

all look forward to the time when our Sophomore year will be completed,' as it is, ac- "

cording to all reports, the most difficult period of the cou rse. We cannot help but feel

that a bright and rosy future is in store for us as Juniors. Undoubtedly, when we be-

come mining engineers, among our most pleasant reminiscences will be man v thoughts

~ of 'our first two vears of life at Mines and the friendships made then. II

Upon arrival we were all properly welcomed by the present Junior class, then Sophomores, by being pulled through the creek, tied up and "wrinkled." After this preliminary education we soon became acquainted, held ou r first class meeting, elected D. L. Jones class president and then proceeded to do ruo re or less studying. After the Christmas holidays we were allowed to discard our frosh caps, very ornamental, but inconvenient postage stamps of green, white and yellow. Time passed rapidly until summer surveying was at hand. We all blossomed forth as true engineers and gave the tourists a treat for a month. Here ended our careers as f rosh.

The Annual Freshman Ball was given on the evening of December 18, J 915, and was a great success. Due credit has been given the committee for arranging such an elegant function with such a small class to pay the expenses. This was the only occasion upon which the class assembled formally.

";7 It is the nature of Freshmen to claim their class as the best ever, but this "

G As our introduction to Mines we' were challenged by the 'haughty Sophs, ;\~

~ to a tug-of-war on the banks of Clear Creek. We naturally accepted the ~-

i~ challenge but found later that we had. been duped, as in order to pull the ~,:..

~ Sophs. through the briny deep would necessitate pulling several upper class- ~

~~ men and a huge cottonwood or two, but some kind fairy (or do they call small ~~

r«, boys fairies?) cut the rope; as a result several upper classmen braved the tor- ;>'g

2f rent and we were declared the winners. In the evening, taking advantage of ,'"

~. the darkness and out over-confidence, the Sophs., assisted by the upper class- t;r

G1 men (or was it the upper' classmen assisted/by. the Sophs.}, proceeded, after ~'

§if a game but useless struggle on our parr, to .bind us handand.foot, "one ,and all, ~~~I

~ until we looked like so many bales, just to show us that it could be done, after ' !

~ which we were given our freedom.' ~~;

~~ As the insignia of our station we were forced to 'wear the most cunning ,~

§} little blue dot caps, topped with a green button and which covered about as ~~i

~( much ground as a Charlie Chaplin mustache. These caps served to distin- ~

F'i guish us and set us apart from the others. ;,1 I

·M __ M"'II





My pick is stuck in my belt-loop, my pipe is stuck in my face, I'm off to the snowy mountains, I'm moving from place to place,

With the clear, cool air about me and the chance of a "strike" ahead, And all of my cares and troubles back in the town I've fled.

Smoking my strong tobacco, humming my happy song,

I'm off on the search for the gold I've hoped, the gold I have sought for long; But whether I find it or fail once more, whatever my fate deems best,

At least I'll have been on the hike again and sated my deep unrest.

By day in the barren gulches, or up on the snow field's sheen,

Or wandering through the va l leys, all quiet and cool and green; With an'rice-co ld torrent tumbling over the rocks and sand

And maybe a cordial rancher to shake me by the hand,

With a welcoming, "Howdy, stranger, would you care for a bite with me?" Then a supper of spuds and bacon whose savor is heavenly,

And night comes over the mountains, and the heights and peaks assume A dim and a vague trauslucence.c like shadows of stately bloom.

Sometimes with .no wa l ls 'abou(me, no roof but the SKY above, I lie in my army blanket and=-ponde r on life and love? Well, no, I pull on my briar, I'm held by the night in thrall

And I watch the thin smoke melt away and think of nothing at all. Peace to the wid.e world's worries, they are millions of miles afar, Thev look as distant and small to me as the uttermost tiny sta 1', And- the nightwind brushes l!1ytempjes and drowsy visions creep Into my idl e, carefree br a in-c-and then comes a dreamless sleep.

M~- pick is stucK' in my belt-loop, my pipe IS stuck in my face, I'm off on another prospect, hoping that I may trace

Some vein of the yellow metal, Or even the red or white,

And never was -heart afore eager, and never were hopes more bright. What if I never strike it? you ask, with a pitying smile;

Why, friend, the very searching is many' times worth the whil'e, For it lifts my troubles from me and I know from the very start

That one sort of gold I am sure to gain-the gold of a ca ref'ree hea rt!.

The Prospector's Course, which opened February 4th, proved to be quite as popu-

. lar as in past years, thirty-eight ore-seekers from half a dozen states enrolling to learn the chemical and geological secrets which would open to them the earth's treasure vaults.

F. G. Carter

/l tlilrttc Dirrctor

"Coach" came here to fill the place "Doc" Hanley had last year. His ability was soon appreciated, as shown by the fact that the men worked hard and steadily under him in all athletics that he coached.

Besides being football coach he is athletic director r nd has charge of the physical training of the "f rosh" and "sophs."

"Coach" is always on the job ready to do all in his power to bring athletics up to rhe highest standard possible.

/l sslstant Coach

Here is a man that would rather have his team win than eat. "Aqua," as the fellows called him, was constantly figuring out new plays which were surprisingly original. He played under Yost of Michigan and showed the value of training . "Aqua" is a firm believer of the "hustle idea," and this year's team will never forget this fi rst principle.

"Kis" helped us out again this year, showing us where we could improve and how to meet the most aggressive offense. To know that "Kis" was watching a Mines game was enough to put fight in the game. He is conceded to be the biggest man in football 10 the Rocky Mountain region.

H. G. Buckingham

"Buck" is one of the Miners' most loyal adherents. Before the Aggie game "Buck" got the team together at the Y. l\tl. C. A. and said things that will never be forgotten by the team. The men left for the field with tears in their eyes and a great determination in their hearts. The result of the garile showed the effects of "Buck's" talk. How abou t a "Sky-rocket" for "Buck"?

Athletics at the School of Mines have always been popular, hoth with the students and faculty. Good feeling and harmony have been a feature of our athletics and a keen sportsman-like rivalry exists for all positions on the various teams. Men having ability in any branches of sport owe it to the school as well as to themselves to come out and do their part.

A good idea of what athletics means to the school may be obtained from a review of the past year.

The football team was composed of excellent material, but their performances were extremely erratic. They played the game hard and, win or lose, were solidly supported by the student body and no matter where the score stood, the famous Mines Spirit never flagged either on the field or in the stands.

Baseball labored under a great disadvantage, the players commg directly from Idaho Springs or the surveying field without even warming up. As a result they were unable to compete successfully against their trained opponents. Despite such handicaps the Miners stuck behind the team as usual and the spirit of the players never lagged. This year a veteran team with good training should bring back the school's laurels.

Coach Carter started drilling an entire new system of play into the basket ball men and even though they failed to win, their play was a vast improvement over last year's


The coach's work should bear fruit next season.

The change of schedule which threw the school field work into May and ruined the baseball prospects entirely eliminated the track team, but there is plenty of good

material out for this year's squad.

That the season was a failure would be hard on the efforts of those who played.

Calling the season a success, from the standpoint of games, would be equally in error. Comparing it with the last six years it was not up to standard, but there were times when it was good. We will just call it an average season and let it go at that.

lVIany of the newspapers in town give ]\1ines little credit for what they do, but they fail to remember that we pick our team from a small number of men. Our comeback, although a bit prematu re, was true to ou r old form and one of the best ever staged.

The team makes no excuses and takes their defeat like a Miner alwavs does, which is about the best that can be said of any team.

New Mexico

Although this game was primarily to strengthen the weak points- of our team, in preparation for the opening of the conference season, it gave us an opportunity to determine our real strength. The game was hard fought and a number of brilliant play's we r« made. The team came back from Albuquerque victorious and ready for the con-


Colorado College

After a week of hard practice we were ready for our first conference- game and possessed plenty of confidence. The entire student body, along with a Jew of-the Faithful from Denver, went down to Colorado Springs on October 21SJ to ee the lV(iners and the Tigers fight it out.

Amidst great excitement III the bleachers the kick-off took place. One of the Tigers fumbled the ball and the Miners gained possession of i-to -Three tries for gain, a fumble, and Stringham stepped back for a field goal, but the ball-sailed wide and the

Tigers took possession of it on the z oyard line.

From there on the game became one grand march down the field with the Miners always on the defensive. The Miners fought hard but could not hold out against tile plunging backfield of the Tigers.



On October z Sth the Miners journeyed to Laramie to meet the strong Wyoming team, which was confident of victory after the Miners' defeat at Colorado Springs the week before.

However, the cowboys were unable to stand up against the aggressive playing of their visitors, the Miners scoring in every quarter. The Cowboys found the Ore Diggers' line as a stone wall, although in the last quarter they broke th rough our line for a


Forward passes were used often by both teams with varied su-ccess. Johnny Poulin did brilliant work in hitting the Wyoming line. All the Miners showed remarkable



Before the game no one conceded the Miners a chance, but after a two-hour talk by Buckingham, the team went on the field filled with the famous Mines spirit and fight.

It was a cold day and the field was covered with snow, but the Miners tore into their heavier opponents "hell bent for election." After the first few minutes of play, the champion Aggies were almost heart-broken, for gains seemed impossible .. The ore diggers carried the ball to the two-yard line only to lose it on a fumble. The ball was regained and held possession of only by hard fighting for the remainder of the time.

The Farmers threatened to make a touchdown towards the last of the game, but the old fighting spirit of the Miners showed up just in time and broke up their rally.

The game showed that the Miners could come back. The "dope" on the confer-

ence race was upset as the Dynamiters held Aggies to a scoreless tie.

"Chuck" Schneider tore through the Aggies' line time and again for long gains,

assisted by good interference.

Heitzman and Worth were again the stars on the line, while "Snick" played his usual fast game on the end.



Denver University

The Miners started the season with a disastrous defeat at the hands of the Tigers, then came back and held the Aggies to a scoreless tie. On Thanksgiving Day we went up against the Ministers, who were playing a remarkable game. For three periods the ball went back and forth with neither team having much advantage, both threatening their opponent's goal repeatedly. The latter part of the game the Miners began to show wear and tear from the smashing onslaughts of the Ministers. Then D. U. opened up on their long end runs, and although the Miners fought hard to break up this line of attack, the Ministers scored three times. The game was a clean-cut, hardfought battle and both sides deserve much credit. "Chuck" Schneider was the best ground gainer for the are diggers, while Williams, in his last game, maintained his reputation for playing a steady, sportsman-like game. "Heitz" and Worth bore a large part of the attack on the line, while "Snick" Schneider was in every play.

Anderson and Mahoney starred for D. U., Mahoney's long end runs being the feature of the game.

W. H. Williams


"Billy," with his clean, consistent playing; and hard fighting, made an ideal captain. His thorough knowledge of the game made him a leader to be looked up to. He never failed to gain when called upon and ran perfect interference for his team-mates. His defensive work was equally efficient and his presence back of the line gave the team confidence.

W. S. Stringharn Captain-elect-Left Halfback

"String's" punting has caused many dollars to TOll (up hill) into the Mines treasury. He is a capable runner, and a man to be feared in the open field and will make a good captain for next year.

M. G. Heitzman

Left Tackle

All Rocky Mountain (4).

"Heitz" was the unanimous choice for this position on the 1916 All Rocky Mountain team. The big "Carp" plays the game from the minute the whistle blows until the game ends. His place will be one that will be hard to fill.

L. K. Worth

Left Guard

All Rocky Mountain (4).

"Buck" was also on the mythical eleven, which he greatly jdeserved. He was a hard worker, playing a steady and careful game throughout his career. The work of Cadot and "Meyers has not been forgotten; so will it be with "Buck" and "Heitz."

G. H. Roll

Ri!Jht End

"Spike's" six feet th ree of length showed to great advantage at right end. A forward pas needed to sail high to pass beyond his reach. He has played a consistent game throughout h is football ca reer.

S. A. Mewhirter

Right Guard

"Sid" was selected by one paper as all conference guard. "Sid" is not only a good player but he is a thorough student of the game. Two years of hard, consistent work won for him a secu re place on the team.

L. R. Van Burgh


"Van" proved himself, as usual, to be an excellent example of the well known "irresistible force" and has never yet found an opposing line which could prove to be the "immovable object." "Bullet" will be with the team next y-ea r in his role of ground gainer.

H. G. Schneider

Left End

All Colorado ("3).

"Snick's" playing reminds one of "Bud" Shanley in action. At spilling interference and nailing his man he is hard to beat. An all Colorado end this year and still improving. "Snick" figures as all important factor in determining the next year's championship.

G. K. Young

Right Tackle

Whenever there was any mix-up "Pete" was in the midst of it. He was one of the hardest tacklers on the team, showing good form at all times. On the offensive, "Pete" has opened many holes in the opposing line which were large enough for a" good sized horse to drive through.

F. C. Sealy


Fred was about the strongest man in the line-up. He was new at the game, but for all that, any opposing player that happened to get III his way was more careful the next time:

C. E. Peterson

Right Halfback

"Pete" started ou t the season by making a twenty and a thirty yard run in the Albuquerque game and threw his knee out. During the remainder of the season "Pete" was prevented from playing his usual game as a result of his injury. He leaves a vacancy in the backfield that will be hard to fill.

R. M. Weaver

]III ana g er

"Weave's" work as manager helped considerably to make one of the most successfu I seasons, financially, in :Mines athletic history. His smiling face was always to be seen at the admission gate, ready to take in the coin.

Joe was Weaver's assistant, His work was mostly that of janitor, but he performed his duties well and will make an ideal manager next year.

How about a "comp," Joe?

W. ]. Murphy


"Murph" played his last year of basket ball with his usual brilliancy. He is a steady man on the floor and his heart is in every game. He made a good captain, but was hampered by lack of experienced material to work with.

C. C. Taylor


"C. C.," after being out a year, made a decided comeback.' He was one of the fastest men on the team and displayed remarkable ability in basket shooting. "c. C." has still another vear to give to Mines basket ball and will no doubt display better form than ever.

R. S. Coulter


Coulter was one of the most able men on the team. His aggressive team work won for him the honor of being elected captain of next year's squad. Bis basket shooting was accurate and he guarded like a veteran .

M. T.



"Hof" was in the game every minute and broke up many plays with ease. His team work was good and as a fighter was an. object of interest. Three years of varsity basket ball has given "Hof" th~ technic of an' expert.

N. Gallucci


"Nick" was the find of the season. He had many faults at first but overcame them in no time and continued to improve. He will be heard from more than once before he finishes his career in Mines athletics.

E. ].


lit[ allay er

The manager's job at its best is thankless, so we will take the initiative and heartily thank him for the work that he has done. .

He entered into the spirit of the game with the men who played it. He accomplished his work to the satisfaction of everyone in his characteristic, quiet and unassuming manner.


The Scrubs

This year's basket ball squad was composed of excellent material. The second team played good baJl and afforded much needed practice for the varsity. The enti re squad had opportunity to play in conference games and next season will bring forth seasoned material. The following men rendered valuable service to the team:

Dunn Garnett Miller Bunte Wichman Pittser





I '






Coach Jones' call for recruits was answered by a good-sized squad early in February. The men immediately got down to hard work and prospects for a winning team were good. However, the weather conditions kept the team from practicing. This, along with the fact that most of the team was either out in the field surveying or doing tunnel work, hindered the team work and worked hardships on the players. Only a few games were played and these were lost. This does not reflect upon the

merits of the players, as in every game they out hit their opponents.

Heitzman pitched brilliant ball and in most cases had perfect support from his team-mates. The first inning of every game seemed .to be the "jinx." During the rest of the game the Miners outplayed their opponents in every department of the

game, but the score run up in the first inning was too great to overcome.

This year's team is practically intact and we have a clear vision of the championship.
