Central Comets In Home Grid Debut By FRED MENDELL Central Christian high school will play its first football game ever in Hutchinson, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Trinity's Pritchard field. Central will play Galva. This is a year of innovation for both schools. Until this year, Galva had been playing 11-man football, but because of the low enrollment, Galva dropped to the eight-man game. For Central the whole business is something new. In fact Coach Larry Schmucker was so short of hoys who knew what the game was about, that he opened practice sessions by showing the players how to put on their uniforms. And he was still explaining basic football terms, while other high school sqnads were scrimmaging. Central kept on practicing while other schools were playing first and second round games. But Coach Schmucker was surprised at how quickly the boys caught on. While many have pacifist leanings, they took to football like birds to flight. They like to hit. The team opened its schedule with an 8-0 win over Partridge, and held the Quails to six yards in total gains. Football couldn't be an expensive sport for Central, because money in large amounts just wasn't available. "Trinity got us started," Supt. Millard Seaman said. "If it hadn't been for Trinity we wouldn't have considered football. But Trinity gave us some uniforms, about a dozen hal- mets, some shoulder and hip pads. "Curt Bennett, coach at Sterling College gave us more equipment and so did Chaparral high, as there was more epuipment at Harper and Anthony than the one high school had need for when those 'high schools combined." While new equipment to outfit just one player costs well over $100, Central put 24 players on the practice field for about $50. The boys bought their own practice jerseys. Central Christian did spend some extra funds on pants. The most experienced player on the Central squad is Ted Seaman, son of the school superintendent, who played some high school football in South Date- ta. Ted had 27 defensive points in the game with Partridge. On offense he is a blocking back. Other outstanding performers in the opener were Stan, Neufeld, nose guard; Ervin Jen- Recluce Roster PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) The Portland Trial Blazers reduced their player roster to 12 Monday, returning forward John Baum 'to the Chicago Bulls. The second-year National Basketball Association team had picked up Baum, 25, oh loan from the Bulls Sept. 7. lings, outside linebacker, and Randy Royse, a junior running back from South Hutchinson. Not all of the 24 squad mem- bers can see action in a game. Two are junior high lads just out for practice. Three are transfer students who are ineligible under Kansas High School Activities Assn. regulations. The other 19 can play, and most of them probably will see action against Galva.
