Guy Krumm was named the new basketball coach by the board of education. The reorganization of the athletic set-up at Kaukauna High school moves Paul E. Little, formerly head coach of all major sports, to the newly created position of athletic director.
In one of those wild and wooly games that the baseball players showed how the game should not be played was as Little Chute defeated the Mellow Brewers Sunday 15 to 14 in ten innings at the Chuters Park. The Chuters spotted the Kaws ten runs in the first inning this apparently is not enough as the Brewers let down and saw the Chuters fighting back to tie up the contest and win the tenth. Dago Schuler started on the mound for the Kaws and was relieved by his brother Ed in the fourth when the count was 10 to 7.

When Phil Zwick, the Kaukauna battler, beat Nick Peters, California lightweight champion a few weeks ago, the Kaw fighter thought he would finally get a break in the fight game that he waited for the past 12 years. Peters was ranked fourth best lightweight in the world. Well, our Phil Zwick knocked the dope cockeyed when he gave Peters a boxing lesson. The referee called the halt in the ninth round and gave the bout to Phil. All lightweight boxers now refuse to fight Phil. This is the same thing that happened seven years ago when he knocked out the eastern favorite in Madison Square garden, New York.
