24 THE TIMES RECORD, TROY. N. Jones Gets Nod Over Freddie Dawson A BIT OF THIS AND A BIT OF THAT By JACK McGRATH The curtain rang down Saturday on one of college football's outstanding careers--and though the ending wasn't, as dramatic as most of us would have liked--the career of Dick Kazmaier of Princeton needed no finale to Insure its immortality. Before a mild concussion and broken nose sidelined him. for most of Saturday's game with Dartmouth, Kazmaier had been an inspirational leader for a team that surprised even its most ardent fans this year. In so doing he rewrote the record book and left behind him for future Princeton gridders the reminder that he was a football player of the top magnitude. Coach Charley paid a special tribute to the Maumce, Ohio, gridder, when he allowed a touch of sentiment to creep into the final game. With thirty seconds left to play Saturday Kazmaier was put back into the lineup, with orders not to handle the ball. Two husky linemen stood between him and the Dartmouth linemen for protection. And when the gun sounded, his mates lifted him to their shoulders and carried him off the field. It was especially fitting that his Tiger mates should carry Kazmaier off on their shoulders. For the slender shoulders of Dandy Dick has carried much of the burden of giving Princeton its second consecutive undefeated football season. Press box observers were quick to point out after the game that the way Princeton's offense bogged down with Kazmaier on the sidelines indicated just how important the slim perfectionist was in the Tiger victory skein. Kazmaier weighed only 155 pounds when he reported for practice with the Freshmen team. Dick had a difficult time trying to make the first-year squad as a second stringer. Makes Varsity. The following season, he turned out for varsity and the scales showed he weighed 161. That is a fair weight for a high school player. For a college team, it's rather slender. But Kazmaier was happy. He made the team. And Princeton never regretted it. Kazmaier moved into the company of such former Tiger stars as Snale Ames, Johnny; Poe and Jake Slagle. He was truly great. Just think--in three seasons of varsity ball, Kazmaier rushed for 1,964 yards and passed for 2,393 yards. That gives him a total offense of 4,357 yards. Dick scored 20 touchdowns and passed for 35. WEDNESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 28, 1951 St. Peter's Uses Zone Defense To Upset Siena, 51-43 Los Angeles (AP)--Favored Freddie Dawson, 146, Chicago, droped a unanimous decision last night to Bobby Jones, 147, Oakland, in the main event at the Olympic Auditorium. Jones holds the California welterweight ami middle- titles but was the underdog because of a previous loss to Dawson several weeks ago in San Francisco. There were no knockdowns, but Jones opened a cut on Dawson's eye in the seventh which continued to bother the Chicago, man. This year, Kazmaier had a total 1,827 yards, a figure which would give him number one ranking in that department in the nation unless one of his rivals runs wild next Saturday. And what about the future for the 171-pound halfback from Mau- mec, Ohio? Kazmaier has frequent ly that he has no intention of playing professional football However, he has added that a sensational salary offer interest him. It is extremely doubtful if the Trojan Women.

The pros like their players a little bulkier than and his 171 pounds and are not geared for the play for-pay ranks. Kazmaier expects a call from the Armed forces after he receives his diploma next June. After tha chore is completed, Dick plans to do graduate work in business ad ministration at Harvard or possiblj a mid-western university. 1 Maybe True. The other day the Associated Press carried a small item abou the release of Johnny (Red) Mari on as manager of the Birmingham club. Marion in his only season with the Barons directed them to the 1951 Southern Association playoff and Dixie Series championships. The release of Marion as pilot of the Birmingham club would just be another item, but this corner is of the opinion that Marion is high on the list of candidates for the job as manager the Albany Senators next season. Marion is probably one ot the Hi-Way Church.

The visitors, playing their first game of the season 'combined a tricky revolving zone defense with plenty of fight and hustle to hand the Indians their first Idss in three games. Siena may have been looking ahead to its all-important game with Manhattan Saturday night in Madison Square Garden, but the New Jersey boys were looking for the Indians and they got them. A 5-7 sophomore jumping jack, Don Finn, playing his first varsity game, led the reacocks to their victory by tossing in 21 points, on ten field goals and a free throw. St. Peter's took the lead from the start and maintained the advantage for the full game, leading 24-19 at the half. Hogan Hits 20. Bill Hogan tossed in 20 points for the Indians, playing an outstanding floor game. He entered the contest after eight minutes were gone and stayed until the end. The closest man to Hogan, r. points, was Billy Harrell with Harrell left the game on with four and a half minutes Hogan and Harrell played the boards well for the Indians, but 'he Siena shooting was and he locals were never able to solve he winners' defensive style.

Gordie has been inserted at center on a line that includes two more Ps, sophs Frank Paradise of Somerville, and Jim Pope of Ottawa.

CARDS' OWNER CUTS FIELD FOR MANAGER'S JOB TO THREE MEN St Louis (AP)--The search for new manager for the St. Louis ardinals has been narrowed down three men, two of them from utside the Cardinal organization, nly one has previous managerial xperience. That was the word yesterday om owner Fred Saigh, who said rid ay when he fired Marty Maron that he had no one in mind or the job. "Let's have no guessing game," aigh said in refusing to name the men under consideration. With the colorful Rogers Horns- taking over as manager of the ival St Louis. Browns of the merican League, reports circulat- ng in baseball quarters here were hat Saigh is seeking a "big name" man for the job. Eddie Stahky, the peppery sec- nd baseman of the New York has figured prominently in peculation as to who will get larion's job. Saigh acknowledged he was waiting permission from other all clubs to negotiate with the wo who are not with the Cardial organization. "I expect to now soon whether the men from utside our organization are avail- ble," he said.

Hal Wittner, official interpreter for Section II, NYSPHSAA, addressed more than 70 coaches, players and followers last night at Troy High gym on the regulations governing high school bsaketball play in 1951-52. Emphasis was placed on game ending foul situation, which, will again be a "laboratory" subject in New York State. In review, here it is: After five minutes of the last quarter has elapsed, a dead ball begins a period of change in tht treatment of fouls. All (except those of a technical mature) will incur two shots, which must be taken. the second is made, the ball goes to the ing team under the basket shot at If the second is missed, the ball remains in play. Two shots to each player concerned are also levied in the case of a double foul, a center jump between the 'principals following the tries. A technical foul, one shot, is followed by award of possession to the offended team at midcourt Another reminder was the resumption of play from out of bounds at midcourt after a time out has been granted. The team in possession at the call naturally retains control. take the elevator real smoking enjoyment Invest a couple of pennies more and give your state of mind a lift with El Pro'ducto's real enjoyment.
