"HTmi enter’’ Jr [tot Can (rvice eitrn Ct UlUUi. ,.,„i ‘Spring Has Foldberg Been A After Success’ Game By VAN CONNER 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 cess.” “We definitely know our 44 men ow,” he began, and added that U 2lMhp felt the 3-week off-season prac- Jtice session had accomplished what it set out to do. In the rough-and-tumble game [that bespoke of none of the 44 in k “safe” position yet, the Maroons ■■■■passed and powered to a 24-0 vic- |•fj■tory over their white-shirted team- MMImates. Foldberg Is Pleased Foldberg said he was pleased SjPg Hwith the way the men hit each Bother and added that he hoped •£$-'Bit wou ld continue next season ^■Hwhen they are playing for keeps. A look at the lineups for the ^Si annual spring game showed that h|h the burly All-America end had ftfal done some shuffling of positions jM and players during the spring workouts. 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. i hisb hi* feeif Thirty-seven of those yards came on an unexpected pass from Caffey to Richard Whatley. When asked how he discovered that Caf fey was a passer, Foldberg smiled and said, “That’s just part of the program.” 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 yards. 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 THE BATTALION 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 injury. Dr. Milton Helpern, the city’s chief medical examiner, reported the findings after a four-hour autopsy. “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 injury.” 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. The Jlth annual Syracuse Re gatta will be held at Onondaga Lake near Syracuse, Saturday, June 16.

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.
