.n. and towns of the Central Northwest, centering at Minneapolis and
Saint Paul, is the task to which the organization of Northern States
Power Company is dedicated.
The Company has pioneered in
three of the outstanding develop-
ments of the electric industry-
"super" power, rural electrifica-
tion and customer ownership.
A total of more than 450,000
horsepower of generating capacity
in 51 hydro and steam plants sup-
plies the electrical energy de-
mands of this .great territory.
Transmission lines extending into
Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Da-
kota and South Dakota, are uni-
fied through interconnection into a
compact, efficient "super" power
system.
A total of 419,582 customers of
all classes are served, 313,343 being
users of electricity. Electrical en-
ergy output in 1926 totaled 805,-
380,692 kilowatt-hours.
Northern States Power Com-
pany is cooperating with farmers,
educational and government agen-
cies in the solution of the problems
of farm electrification-its Red
Wing line was the first experimen-
tal rural electric line in the world.
At the close of 1926 the Com-
pany had a total of 53,938 share-
holders-a shareholder for every
six electric customers.

feature of the 1925
and 1926 contests.
For the Gophers the
schedule is bound to
be a hard one. Okla-

lege will appear in the
Stadium next Satur-
day with a team rated
one of the strongest in
the Missouri Valley
Conference, and the
following week Dr.
Spears will take his
squad to Bloomington,
Wisconsin, coached
now by Glen Thistle-
waite, late of North-
western, will be the
guest at Minnesota's
knitting bee on Oc-
tober 29, Dad's Day.
After three years of
ties, Minnesota flowed
over the dam last fall
and nosed out the

the last few minutes
of play, when Mally
Nydahl ran back a

conference game, and first meeting with
the Hoosiers of Indiana University since
1922. In that year Minnesota was vic-
torious.
Homecoming Will Be Early
Homecoming has been set for an early
date this year, October 22, for the joint
reason that pleasant weather is to be
looked for at that time and because on
that day Iowa, for years one of the
staunchest of gridiron foes, will send its
stout warriors to carry the Black and
Gold against the Maroon and Gold of
Alma Mater. Captain Nelson, tackle,
will lead Iowa this year. That state is re-

uncomfortable that every effort will be
made to have the team at the top of its
form by the time of this fall's fracas.
Wisconsin is said to have one of the
strongest sophomore delegations in its
history, together with many returning
veterans of high caliber.
Breathing Spell on Nov. 5
Following three conference games on
as many Saturdays, Captain Joesting
and his fellow players will find a breath-
ing spell on November 5th, when they
have nothing to do but journey to South
Bend, Indiana, home of Mr. Studebaker

This team has been creating quite an Following last winter's regrettable
athletic stir among the many colleges for happening when Bennie Oosterbaan got
which Indiana is famous, and there is a hold of a fumble and ran many yards to
likelihood that Minnesota may encounter a touchdown whereby Michigan beat
opposition of a · severe type. Yes Minnesota 7 to 6 in one of the hardest
sir!
Down at Des Moines, Iowa, Drake
University has been burning up the
league known as the Missouri Valley
conference in recent years. Inasmuch as
it is coached by one Oscar Solem, often
known as "Ossie" , who happens to be
one of the brightest stars of other days
in Minnesota' s football heavens , the
Drake eleven was signed to meet M i n n e ~
sota in the Stadium November 12th.
If Drake goes as well this year as it did
last this will more than limber up Dr.
Spears' kindergarten members for the
games in the long series between them,
the Gopher-Wolverine contest at Ann
Arbor, November 19th, promises to be
a stiff one. Many would have said before
last year's game that Minnesota was
about to break the Michigan hoodoo.
This year, most experienced observers
will withhold judgment. Michigan will
have to beat Ohio State in an early
season game to remain in the champion-
ship 'running. If she does, and Minnesota
happens to come through against Iowa
and Wisconsin, the game at Ann Arbor
will be memorable.

All Americans from Minnesota
F
IVE Minnesota players, including
. Captain Herbert Joesting of the 1927
team, have been selected as All-American
representatives of the game of football .
In this connection it is notable that in
1910 when James C. Walker was se-
lected by Walter Camp as All-American
guard, he and John F. McGovern, All-
American quarterback in 1909, were two
among only nine men from any part of .
the West who had been selected for that
honor. Four of the nine were from
Michigan- Heston, Schultz, Wells and
Benbrook; and three were from Chicago,
Herschberger, Eckersall and Steffen.
John F. McGov-
ern, first of Minne-
sota's All-Ameri-
cans, is still one of
the most loyal sup-
porters of Minne-
sota football, in his
capacity of sports
editor of The Min-
neapolis Journal.
McGOVERN McGovern entered
the University from Arlington, Minn. ,
and played on the 1908, 1909 and 1910
teams, being captain of the team in 1909.
James C. Walker, guard in 1910 and
1911,wasthesecond
man selecte d by
Walter Camp from
Minnesota as an
All-American
player. Walker was
one of the finest
guards ever to play
on a western field,
or for that matter,
in any part of the WALKER
country. He played only two years at
Minnesota, going later to the medical
college of the University of Virginia,
from which he was graduated in 1914.

end, and receiving
man in the famous
forward pass com-
bination of Wyman
to Baston which
played so large a
part in making the
fame of Dr. H . L.
Williams' famous
1916 eleven, was the
third player from Minnesota to be named
an All-American. Like McGovern,
Baston has kept up his interest in Minne-
sota football. He has recently returned
to Minneapolis and entered the auto-
mobile business.
Earl Martineau was the last Minne-
sotan to be selected
on Camp' s mythi-
cal team before the
death of the famous
football expert.
Marty starred as
few backfield men
have been able to
do, fighting against
odds in many games
and reeling off his MARTINEAU
famous, uodging runs for hundreds of
yards each season that he played.
Marty's last year, 1923, found him
captain, and it was accepted as a matter
of course in the football world when
Camp made him an All-American.

as any ever made by Walter Camp.

a finger at least in

sending a 200 pound line into the battle.
Kochian is a letterman, though, and
weighs enough to hold the average up.
The center problem of last year is not
bothering either. There are at least
three men qualified to hold down the job.
Benser was injured before the schedule
was completed last November, and
Halvorson was' switched from guard to
center where he starred against Mar-
quette. A sophomore, McMillan, also
has to be considered.
The backfield was pretty well cleaned
out by graduation last spring and then
Gordon Moore, sensational half who
had one more year to play, did not return
to school. This left only Boyd and
Thomas who had earned letters, and
Thomas cannot be used for anything
except kicking.
Boyd did not gain a place in the
regular lineup last year until near the
end of the schedule. Then he landed
with all his weight of 190 pounds.
Rockwell must find three other men to
go with him. More than that, prac-
tically every back from the 1926 fresh-
man squad must make good to give the
needed reserve power, but he claims to
have the greatest layout of sophomore
backfield material the school has ever
boasted.
Among the outstanding ground gainers
is Mike Knauf of Moorhead, Minn. , 181
pound athlete, who is getting much
attention as a successor to Don Nemic,
fullback. He is a powerful fellow with
worlds of drive and good football sense.
Harold Westerdahl, former St. Louis
Park high school quarterback, and
Macalester freshman quarterback, is
another excellent prospect as is Kirkness,
of Valley City, one of the fastest men on
the field.

Like the pine that seeks the blue,

Thy sons are strong and true.
From thy woods and waters fair,
From thy prairies waving far,
At thy call they throng,
With their shout and song,
Hailing thee their Northern Star.
