|Math, Mary and Theo Hesch|
It was 1913, and Math and Theo were 25 and 23. It was the year after the Titanic sank; the year before their trip to see Europe, as well as the year their nephew Mike was born ☺.
Math was already writing the Buckman News for papers in Pierz and Little Falls. I suspect he reported glowingly about winning, huh? After all, they were strapping farm boys, as were their opponents from nearby towns.
Horst's account is actually fascinating--I didn't know any of that, did you?
