|Biography/History||"The William Randolph Hearst Trophy, the most coveted of all national school rifle awards, was won by the North Dakota State Rifle Team, according to a telegram received recently by Dr. Shepperd. This makes the third national championship that North Dakota State rifle teams under the able leadership and guidance of Capt. Frank S. Ross, have won during the past three years." |
"The best individual score of the team was made by Edward Comm of Fargo, who, although shooting in a team for the first time this year, turned in a phenomenal score of 196 out of a possible 200 points."
"Exceptional scores were also turned in by Morris Barks, Alvin Lee, Kenneth Piper, and Arthur Johnson, the other four members of the five man rifle team." (The Spectrum, May 13, 1930, p. 1) The team was coached by Captain Frank S. Ross, Assistant Professor in Military Science and Tactics.
