‘Spring Has

Assistant Battalion Sports Editor
In an interview held immediately
following Saturday night’s intra-
squad football game, new Aggie
pead football coach and athletic
riirector Hank Foldberg told re
porters, “Our spring was a suc

Foldberg said he was pleased

A look at the lineups for the

Jim Linnstaedter, who as a
jSS freshman played quarterback, and
who some of the reporters expected
I to be tried in that slot by Fold-
^■■berg, was left in his halfback posi-
■fltion. We felt we needed his run-
fining ability there,” the ex-Wichita
“coach explained.
Linnstaedter was a standout for
the Maroons Saturday, both on
offense and defense. He gained
37 yards rushing, 23 on pass re
ceptions, 15 on kickoff returns and
passed for seven. He intercepted
a John Erickson pass and return
31 yards.
Caffey At Left Half
Lee Roy Caffey, who last sea
son vied with Sam Byer for first-
string fullback, was moved to left
ialfback. He was the leading
gainer for the Whites Saturday,
totaling 91 yards.

Thirty-seven of those yards
came on an unexpected pass from
Caffey to Richard Whatley. When
asked how he discovered that Caf

and said, “That’s just part of the
He told of trying to find hidden
abilities among the team members.
He said he was happy to have Caf
fey in that he can handle the left
half position, although “he still
has a lot to learn,” and can fill at
the fullback slot in case of injur
ies there.
Reagan and Ford Top Rushers
Leading rushers in the game for
the Maroons were Travis Reagan
and sophomore halfback Budgie
Ford. Reagan carried 11 times
tor 51 yards and a touchdown and
Ford carried nine times for 42
yards. He also completed a 22-
yard pass to Reagan in the fourth
period for a first down.
Foldberg said that it is “hard
to say” who will be the best Ag
gie passer. “They have their ups
and downs,” he added. Jim Kel- iillii
ler, who started the game for the WmSfrm
Maroons, completed four out of
five for 83 yards. James Willen-
borg, the other Maroon quarter
back, hit three of four for 45
Joe Mcllhany, who ran the
White squad most of the night,
completed two of five for 19 yards WMmm
but Foldberg made it point to men
tion that he was happy with the
way Mcllhany hit his receivers.
Simmons Aggressive On Defense
When asked to comment on the
line play, Foldberg said, “I
thought Simmons did a real fine
job.” Sophomore tackle Melvin
Simmons was aggressive on de
fense for the Maroons, ending a
third-quarter White threat by
covering a Caffey. fumble on his
own five. Earlier in that period,
he stopped another White drive
by deflecting a Mcllhany aerial.
One reporter noticed the new,
five-man line setup used most of
the night on defense. The new
coaching staff is trying to “kill
two birds with one stone,” Fold
berg explained. It is the same
basic setup used by LSU (Aggies’
first opponents next year) and an
effective defensive alignment.
When asked where he thought
the most experience and depth
were in his team, the head coach
said it was without doubt at full
back, and then possibly at center.
He said there are seniors doing
good work for him throughout the
team, but added that matters are
being complicated by the aggres
siveness of the underclassmen.
Jim Linnstaedter ,
This, speedy left halfback traveled 72 yards on offense for
the Maroons Saturday night and added a 31-yard return
on a pass interception. He joined Travis Reagan and Budgie
Ford as a standout in the 24-0 victory over the Whites.
Paret’s Death
Starts Inquiry,
Much Criticism
Wednesday, April 4, 1962 College Station, Texas Page 5
NEW YORK — (AP) — Benny Kid
Paret, who was proud . of his
ability to take a punch and fire
back, died Tuesday, 10 days after
he was battered senseless in losing
the world welterweight boxing
crown to Emile Griffithc
The stocky, 25-year-old Cuban,
star of one bruising battle after
another since he started his U. S.
campaign four years ago, never
regained consciousness after being
pounded against the ropes in the
12th round at Madison Square
Garden on Mai’ch 24.
A two-time welterweight cham
pion, he became the first defender
of a title ever to suffer fatal in
juries in the ring. He was the
third fighter to die of boxing in
juries this year and about the
450th since 1900, according to ring
historian Nat Fleischer.
There was criticism that he had
fought too soon after taking a
severe beating in a 10-round knock
out loss to NBA middleweight
champion Gene Fullmer at Las
Vegas last Dec. 9. There was
worldwide criticism, too, of the
Paret-Griffith fight and cries for
the abolishment of the sport.
The autopsy Tuesday however,
showed no evidence of an old brain
Dr. Milton Helpern, the city’s
chief medical examiner, reported
the findings after a four-hour
“Death was caused by compli
cations of brain injuries sustained
as a result' of the boxing bout
. . . The autopsy did not reveal
any gross evidence of old brain
Death came to the Kid at 1:55
a.m. at Roosevelt Hospital. His
death was foreshadowed when
pneumonia developed Monday, com
plicating the severe brain damage.

gatta will be held at Onondaga

The Saturday Evening
NFL Announces
Tradition Shakeup
NEW YORK — (A 5 ) — A 14-week,
98-game program running from
Sept. 16 to Dec. 16 was announced
Tuesday by the National Football
League and lists several depar
tures from recent traditions.
The tradition shakeups involve
the Cleveland Browns and New
York Giants, perennial Eastern
Conference title contenders, and
the Baltimore Colts of the West
ern sector, who for the first time
in 10 seasons will wind up the
season at home..
The Browns and Giants will
meet in an opening-day showdown
at Cleveland Stadium, rather than
on their usual mid-season date.
Their traditional December meet
ing in New York’s Yankee Stadium
has been retained.
The season cqftain-raiser be
tween Cleveland and Eastern Di
vision champion New York also
enabled the league to work in a
“round robin” of sorts between the
two and the Philadelphia Eagles
during the first three weeks of
the season.
The other schedule innovation
permits the Colts, who always have
closed on the West Coast, to
finish before home crowds. It also
sets their traditional meeting with
Washington for Dec. 9 in Baltimore
and gives them a final day clash
with Minnesota.
The league-champion Green Bay
Packers, who’ll play three “home”
games in Milwaukee, open defense
of their Western Division crown
against Minnesota.
