Page 26 .On The Arizona Republic, Phoenix, Arizona. .Friday, January 21, Mulleneaux, Oliver Top Cat Candidates By ARNOTT THE ACTION of the directors of the Arizona alumni in recommending that Mike Casteel's tenure as head football coach be terminated this spring appears not reports, highly unpopular. . A coach should be judged on a team of necessity being placed at the top of the list. But also important are his character and his ability to get along with people. For this column's money Mike Casteel rates high on all counts. IT IS TRUE that the Cats produced an undefeated record only in 194S under Casteel. That year they won. five games. But it also is true that Arizona, under Casteel, has faced increasingly strong schedules as material improved. Before the start of any given year it usually was apparent that the Wildcats would be doing well to gain an even break. In 1941 they shared the conference title and last campaign wound up at six victories and four losses not counting the Salad Bowl. Casteel was criticized for not jumping on the T formation bandwagon. At the same time his clubs always were among the nation's best offensive machines, based on total yardage gained. And actually his single wing, like Michi- - t vvN MIKE CASTEEL, , gan's, employed much of the T's hipper dipper. The grandstand experts second-guessed Mike by claiming Fred Enke was a natural as a T quarterback and the system should have been built around him. Working from the single wing, though, Enke led the nation in total offense. The wolves, in 1917, yelped that a smart coach would have figured out how good Enke was - earlier in the season rather '. than starting Art Pollard at .' left half in the first few games. NO ONE MENTIONED that Pollard had played a whale of a season the year before. Not only that but Enke actually had more game time built up when Pollard was pitched off the team after those early games than the man he was replacing. ; Certainly Casteel is a likable guy. Even Arizona State at Tempe alumni were shocked at the news that Casteel was being ousted. Although there is nothing Sun Devil supporters would like better than a victory over the U, they respect Mike whose teams never lost a game to their brothers in the valley. The storm of protest in the valley, including Arizona alumni who figured they got a bum deal m not being allowed a voice in the projected move, was almost unanimous Thursday. NOT ONLY do the alumni directors appear to be off base in taking the step they did, - - but it is hard to see why Dr. ! McCormick felt he was obliged i to act on their recommenda-; tion. Undoubtedly he felt that :" the directors represented the ' feelings of the entire graduate . group. We can't speak for the en- tire state, but Phoenix alumni were bitter about the move ! Thursday and several wanted - to know why no poll was tak-; en or why they weren't told of what was going on so that a . defense could be mustered. One suggested that the stu- dents at the school also should - have had a say In the proceed-: ings. ; MOST OF THE informed figure that Carl Mulleneaux, former Phoenix High, Utah State and Green Bay Packers ace end who coached the Arizona line for Casteel last year, is the No. 1 man in line for the job. There also Is much conjecture as to Gerald Tex) Oliver who piloted the Wildcats through one of their most brilliant eras and who now Is a Tucson business man after a stint at Oregon. 1 Mulleneaux. whose ear to the ground picked up rumblings and grumblings about Casteel and who also heard he was in line for the job. did all he could to back Casteel and deserves a strong vote of confidence for that attitude. The Des Moines Register, by the ivay came in promptly with a request for confirmation that Al Kawal. head coach at Drake, was being considered as a replacement for Casteel. No confirmation. 5& - jSft If 5 Sanders Named Football Coach : LOS ANGELES, Jan. 20 (AP) Henry R. (Red) Sanders, athletic Hirector and head football coach at Vanderbilt University, Thursday was named head football coach at UCLA. . Wilbur Johns, athletic director, announced the appointment of the 44-year-old Sanders after a three-hour conference late Thursday with the associated students board f control. 1 The length and amount of the contract was not disclosed by-"Johns. Insiders surmised it was a com DUNCAN only ill advised, but, from early three counts his ability to teach Phoenix Open Drives, Putts Johnny Bulla had one of his hottest sessions with a putter as he tied the competitive course record of 64 at Phoenix Country Club Wednesday in a practice round for the Opening starting next Wednesday. Playing with Joe Jemsek and Art Katz, of Chicago and Dave As-kins and Eddy Cavanagh, Bulla compiled nine-hole rounds of 32 and 32 by canning long ones consistently. He birdied 17 and 18 and sank putts of 10 feet or better on the last five holes. On No. 9 he dropped one from so far out he almost couldn't see the hole. The score ties a mark held by Ben Hogan, Dale Andreason, Ed (Porky) Oliver, Cecil Hardwick and Gray Madison. Jemsek, by the way, is owner of the St. Andrews course on Chicago's west side. He plans to stay around for the tournament and shoots a mean hand himself. JOHNNY PALMER and Johnny Revolta were early birds on the country club course. Palmer still is loosening up kinks by swatting practice balls, but Revolta went around the course Thursday. Palmer was on his way to the Long Beach tourney, but was held up in Lordsburg by the snow storm and when he finally got loose just pulled in at Phoenix to work out. He had ducked home to Badln. N. C. for Christmas, his first at home in several years, and missed the Los Angeles and Bing Crosby events. He couldn't play at Badin because of mud and cold there and claimed his shoulders were a little sore Thursday after Wednesday's session here. LT. DICK TAYLOR of Phoenix and Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, one of Arizona's top amateurs, says he won't be able to take part in the Phoenix Open. He says he can't get away from the base for everything and was in Phoenix with the D-M boxers for the Golden Gloves program. He wants to play in the Tucson Open and in the Tucson County Club Open invitational. He says the new course there is in excellent shape. Carver, Buffs Vie At Tempe Carver's improving cage team will have to be on its toes Friday night when it meets the veteran Tempe Buffaloes in an mter-dis- tnct game at the Tempe High School gymnasium. Tempe has been playing m-and- out ball this year, defeating Gil bert, Phoenix Tech, Mesa and Casa Grande in order before the holidays, then dropping three of the next four, the losses being to Coolidge, Nogales and Superior. TEMPE RECENTLY defeated Florence, 36 to 34. The Gophers defeated Carver, 45 to 25, but that was in early season and the Phoenix club has come a long way since then. Tempe will be led by Roy Cop-pinger, captain of the all-conference team last year. Cacho Perez. Lester Dean, Jamie Groover and Don Gordon are the other likely starters for the Buffs. Coach J." S.-, Flipper will start with Houston Turner and Hadie Redd at guard. Captain Willie Kemp at center, and Jesse Jackson and Carl Hammons at forward. When they played last year at Carver Tempe won, 58 to 49. THE BUFFS HAVE virtually the same team this year, while the Monarchs are a green club. Kemp, their most experienced player, was No. 11 on the Carver squad last year. Carver goes to Tech for a Phoenix City League game Saturday night. A keen rivalry has developed between the two schools and comparative scores indicate a close struggle.

The unofficial guesses placed the figure at a minimum of $15,000 a year. Sanders succeeds Bert La Bruch-erie, whose 1948 UCLA team lost seven games and won three. His appointment ended a search for a new headman which began as soon as La Brucherie's abrupt resignation was announced several weeks ago.

Hogan, Oliver Seek Third Phoenix Titles Bantam Ben Hogan, the 147-pound golf ball belter from Hershey, Pa., will be shooting to become the first three-time winner of the $10,000 Phoenix Open when he comes here for the annual classic next week. Ed (Porky) Oliver, the corpulent shotmaker from Seattle, Wash., will have the same opportunity, since he pocketed first-place money in 1940 and again in 1941. The only other two-time winner of the Phoenix Open, sponsored annually by the Thunderbirds. special events committee of the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, is Byron Nelson, the umbrella salesman from Texas, who copped the local tourneys in 1939 and repeated in 1945. NELSON CAME out of retirement to participate in last week's Bing Crosby Invitational jn Del Monte, Calif., but didn't turn in a card on the final day of play. The former champion told Bob Gold- water, Thunderbird general chair man, that he would not play m the Phoenix Open. Hogan, U. S. Open and PGA champion in 1948 and winner of more than $36,000 in cross-country links play last year, will be the odds-on favorite to wear a Phoenix Open triple crown.. His previous wins were in 1947 when he posted a record 72-hole score of 270 and in 1946 when after a 72-hole tie with Herman Keiser of Akron, O., the Pennsylvania par-blaster won the play-off, 68 to 70 over the part 71 Phoenix Country Club layout. THE 72-HOLE course record in the Phoenix Open was set last year by the South African. Bobby Locke, who posted a 268, sixteen strokes under par. The experts, however, aren't counting out Porky Oliver, who last week in tjie Bing Crosby ended in a three-way tie with Sam Snead and John Barnum for eighth place. Porky was runner-up in the Western Open in 1948 and later took top money in the Tacoma Open. The lowest 72-hole score In a Phoenix professional golf tourney was posted in 1932, the inaugural year, by Ralph Guldahl who at that time was launching a brilliant golf career: In 1933, Harry Cooper won with a 281 and the following year only a pro-amateur contest was conducted. It was won by Ky Laffoon and Barry Goldwater with a best ball score of 64. Subsequent Phoenix tournament winners and their scores were: 1935 fPhoenlx Open) Ky Laffoon. 281. 1939 IPhoenix Open) Byron Nelson, 198 54 holes). Blackwell Tine After Operation GLENDALE, Calif.. Jan. 20 (AP) Ewell Blackwell. star pitcher of the Cincinnati Reds, underwent surgery for the removal of a kidney Thursday night at Glendale Sanitarium. Dr. C. Leroy Turner, one of two surgeons performing the operation, said Blackwell "came through fine and should be able to report to training camp in about six weeks." The 26-year-old righthander will have to remain in the hospital at least a week, the doctor said. The operation, an emergency measure, was necessary because of an obstruction, Dr. Turner said. here.

His 1941 team was one of the best in the Southeastern conference and Sanders was named "coach of the year" in the league.

Then Vandy went on to win eight straight games, including decisions over Kentucky, Louisiana State, Yale and Tennessee. Grads, McKale Credited With Asking Change New Mentor Expected In Time To Handle Spring Training TEMPE, Jan. 20 (AP) - A search for a new football coach began at the University of Arizona Thursday as the Board of Regents of the university and state colleges voted to dismiss Miles W. (Mike) Casteel, who has guided the grid forces since 1939. Although Casteel's contract does not terminate until July 1, it was indicated the new coach will be hired in time to take over spring practice. Announcement that Casteel's contract would be terminated was made by W. R. Ellsworth, newly elected chairman of the regents. during the monthly meeting of the group. He said the board took action on a recommendation of Dr. James Byron McCormick, president of the university. ELLSWORTH MADE the report after Dr. McCormick and the board met in closed session for approxi mately two hours. "I predicated my action on recommendations I had from the executive committee of the alumni association and the director of athletics," Dr. McCormick said following the meeting. "I asked the committee to make a study and submit their recommendations. A majority favored selection of a new coach. The decision was not unanimous." The university president said the action was taken at this time for two primary reasons. First to allow Casteel an opportunity to make other coaching connections, and second, to allow sufficient time to hire a new coach to take over spring training activities. DR. McCORMICK SAID he believed the action of the alumni as sociation s executive committee was prompted by a feeling, that alumni were not giving enthusi astic support to the football pro gram under Casteel. "The executive committee was attempting to express the views of the alumni as a whole," he said. Casteel was notified of the com' mittee's recommendation prior to the meeting here Thursday, the president said. The coach, how. ever, refused comment Thursday in Tucson. Members of the coaching staff other than Casteel were not discussed by the board Thursday and Ellsworth declined to disclose the nature of recommendations on the coaching situation as filed by J. F. McKale. THE REGENTS authorized the university faculty on athletics to study the situation and recommend a new coach. Although recommendations for coaching assistants are made by the director of athletics, it was pointed out the head coach's opinion in the matter will be given wide consideration. Arizona Players Claim Coach Given 'Raw DeaF TUCSON, Jan. 20 (AP) Members of the University of Arizona football team rallied behind Mike Casteel Thursday night when it was announced he was to be replaced as head football coach. , Outstanding players declared he was being given a "raw deal." The players got together earlier this week when word circulated through the campus grapevine that Casteel was to be dropped. Wednesday the squad presented a petition to Dr. J. Byron McCormick, they report, in which they expressed full confidence in Casteel and his coaching abilities. "We were trying to show the university and the regents our true feelings about Mike," one of the players said Thursday. Lee Dyer, first string guard and one of the squad's top men, said Thursday night, "I feel it is a raw deal. I don't see how they can let Mike go on his coaching abilities." Bill Peterson, starting quarterback, declared, "I can't understand how they can fire a coach when his team has had a winning season and when his players are behind him to the extent that all of us are." Art Converse, All-Border Conference center and winner of the 1948 Governor's award for the team's most valuable player, said that he and Harry Varner, first string tackle, had taken a petition to Dr. J. Byron McCormick, university president, Wednesday afternoon. , The petition, Converse declared, was signed by between 30 and 40 players and gave a vote of confidence to Casteel. Converse said that he had asked President McCormick what the "big kicks were regarding Mike." He said that McCormick told him the biggest one was that Casteel was behind time with his football and that also he didn't have the ability of picking out the best football material. Converse said that McCormick told him that 'they' wanted to know why Mike had not used Fred Enke and Art Pollard in the same lineup last year. The Prescott footballer said McCormick did not explain who he was referring to as 'they.' Of the conversation .with the university president. Converse declared: "x x x I know, and I speak for the rest of the players, that there is no basis for any of these charges. I was also surprised that the president hadn't released our petition to the press." On IPisplay Tomorrow The NEW CHEVROLET for '49 SATURDAY, JANUARY 22 ffinootf MUiis ft his arf -w V it j. WSJ.

At the end of three weeks Coach Fred Enke thinks his Wildcats will just about know how they are going to finish in Border Con ference standings. The Cats also will know how they compare with some of the nation's best now they have had some seasoning. Arizona leaves Friday to play Arizona State College at Flagstaff Saturday night. Monday they will engage the State College at Tempe.

The Monsters have had a week's lay off since their game last Saturday night with the Axbabes was cancelled because bad weather prevented the north ern squad from getting to Thatcher. Despite the two previous vie tories over the Bears, and the Monsters unblemished record, Starr is worried over the outcome of the games this week. The Bears have shown improvement and will have the advantage of their home court and the Monsters will be without the services of Jess Pease, stellar guard who is one of the leading Gila scorers. Starr is drilling his charges on ball handling and defense. The Monsters have featured strong de fensive play this season. The Monster defense completely bottled up the Bears' fast break in the opening game but Starr ex pects Coach Dutch Hoy to spring a new offensive against the Mon sters this week. The Monsters lineup will be much the same as it has been, with L. B. Christensen at center, Clyde Pace and -Junior Montoya at forwards and Dean Goodman at guard, with Darrus Hughes, who has shown definite improvement during the past week, in the other guard spot. Others who will see action against the Bears will be Arlen Draper, Monroe Bull, Brooks Curtis, Adair Merrell, Arthur Patterson, Lavar Burnett, and Jack Wilson. The Monsters will again be at the height disadvantage, with only Christensen topping the six foot mark. focfe Sto 13W President zona after a reign that started in 1943, and other strong Texas teams. Enke Thursday night listed Art Carroll as a doubtful player as far as Jriagstaii is concerned, ine former Phoenix College star sprained his ankle Wednesday. Tf he is unable to leave with us to morrow he'll join the team in Tempe," Enke explained. LINK RICHMOND, considered Arizona's greatest all-time player, is back with the squad. Richmond injured his knee in football practice in 1947 and has never been the same since. He re-injured it last fall and left the hoop squad. Now he is back. "He appears to be coming along quite well," Enke said Thursday. "He says his knee feels stronger than it did last year." Richmond has played on four Arizona teams that won confer ence titles, once as co-champs with West Texas. He is expected to see action for only fleeting moments against the Lumberjacks and Sun Devils. Enke sized up the two important contests against bitter State rivals as follows, "We don't know what to expect. We do know that both Flagstaff and Tempe will play their best against us. We think the new court Flagstaff will be using will help us." Cage Results BORDER CONFERENCE New Mexie 60, New Mexico A and M 49. COLLEGE North Carolina 69, William and Mary 61.

Continuously in Phoenix since 1897 H1CKEY-FREEMAN Hunt For New F ootball Boss In Full Swing: Former Phoenix Union.. Athletic Star In Line . For Job- TUCSON, Jan. 20 (AP) Spee- ulation on a successor for Mike Casteel as head football coach at the University of Arizona is in full swing. The name of Carl Mulleneaux. present assistant coach, is being mentioned. Mulleneaux gave up an end coaching assignment at St. Louis University to take over Arizona's line at the start of spring practice a year ago. BORN IN PHOENIX, he started an outstanding athletic career -playing with Phoenix Union High. Graduating in 1933, he moved northward and lined up with Utah State. He played three years of varsity ball with the Aggies. The big fellow was Rocky Mountain all-conference in 1935 and 1936; was named to the second All-America team in his senior year and played for the West in the 1937 Shrine game. Mulleneaux played end for seven years with the Green Bay Packers. Twice he was named to the first all-professional eleven. DURING THE WAR he was end coach at the Great Lakes Naval training station and played and coached at Bainbridge Naval Academy. He returned to the pro game after the war. Last year he turned down a renewal of his contract at St. Louis to return to his native state! i It is natural that the name of Gerald (Tex) Oliver is being men- tioned. Oliver originally came to Arir zona as track coach in 1933 but soon replaced Lt. Gus Farwick as" head grid coach. OLTVER TOOK OVER the Cats when their fortunes were at a low ebb. He raised them to a position of sectional and almost national importance. In his five years at the university his teams won 32 games, lost 11, tied four and won the only two undisputed Border Conference championships in the school's history. Oliver came back to Tucson a couple of years ago after an eight-' season stint as head coach of the University of Oregon. He became; interested in the real estate and insurance business and it is understood he has been most successful. AT THE TIME of his return Oliver said, "I am through with-coiching for good. I suppose you. might put it this way. If someone left me a million dollars I would, return to football. This isn't going to happen. I've devoted most of my life to footbalL It is time I thought of something else." Oliver hasn't given the slightest ' indication that he has changed his mind. . -: A man running 100 yards in 9.4 seconds actually is traveling about 20 miles per hour.
