Polish Attack .For Elgin Although the Pirates found several flaws in their attack and in their defense, many improvements were noticed. The tackling of Ronald Gunderson. Don Heins, and Wayne McNally was outstanding. The plunging of Tennis Mork and improved running of Jack Meyer and Dean Gunderson showed teal promise for the future. Above all, the downfield blocking of the Postville team was a prominent factor in the victory. The manner in which Jim Waters stepped in to handle Eugene Rima's quarterbacking duties showed that the Pirates do have some reserves that can handle important jobs in place of emergencies. The Pirates must now ready themselves for - their first night contest, to be played at Elgin on Friday. September 24, at 8:00. Elgin has a team with real possibilities and should give the Pirates a real test. Reserves Lose In a game Saturday morning at 10:00 the Postville reserves were downed by Tripoli's first team by a score of 25 to 6. Although the Pirates were definitely outclassed in this contest for two-thirds of the way, they outfought and outscored the Tripoli varsity the final quarter.
