»ATIUWN SUN, MUNPAY. - JANUARY .11. i WPASE Gammel And Evans Will Lead 7954 Two ambitious and smiling Ganders—J. W. Gammel and Von Evans—were set Monday to -lead the 1954 Roberc E. Lee football team. They, had !bnen elected captains of the team last week, and announcement of the .honors came as-a highlight Saturday of the annual football banquet in tne school cafeteria. Caramel, a back who lettered as a sophomore and who will be after his third letter next season, and Evans, who starred last year at guard, both proved their popularity with their teammates by carry- Wading Time NEBRASKA CITY,.Neb. —UP— School children found a double use for an ice skating rink recently flooded in Hayward Park. They used the rink as a wading pool, awaiting the first cold snap. ' ing off the highest athletic honor a Gander can win. Their first official duties will be to help the coaching staff plan spring training that is scheduled to start on Feb. 13. When these two lads were named by the outgoing captains, Jim Morris and Louisi Del Homme, the news was received with cheers. Previously Coach Dan Stallworth had"named. 35. -.lettermen; and he had presented a silver iplate to David (Kosse) Johnson, Baytown's second All-America college gridder who won the honor as Rice's great fuilback in 1953. Coach Stallworth praised the 1953 team as the team with the biggest heart. He predicted that the record of the 1953 team, which formally was awarded a huge football as co-champions of district 8-4A, will go down in Robert E. Lee history as one of the greatest achievements of recent year. He told how the team got off the floor after being mauled by Lamar in the opening game and how it came fighting back to have a fine season that was climaxed by a tie with Port Arthur. The big hope of 1953 was anoth- er shot at Lamar which was denied by a matter of seconds, but he promised the graduates that the 195* team would try to avenge the J953 loss when the teams— the Redskins and Ganders—line up for play in Houston to open the new season next Sept. 16. Those winning letters were Morris, DelHomme Stolhandske, Guinn Baker, David Wallace, F. C. Saxon, Ed Williams, Ken Cockrum, Vincent Lampasas. Mike Hensley, W. J. Stokley, Evans, Gammel, Don Browning, Jim Wilson, Doyle Mitchell. Birnie Nbvasad, Glenn Wat- son, Nick Listi, Cameron Gates, Don Walker, Ron Callaway, Richard King, John >Enderli, W. R. Mize, Ed Bussa, Buzzy Byers, Harold Stuart, Kenneth •'Smlth./Doii Hullum, Wayne Hollister, Charles Hill, Jim Rincon, Leo Wotipka and Bob Dooley. Stallworth praised Johnson : for his great play as a Gander and for his great play at Rice.-He told the modest Owl star how much the home folks thought of him; Kosse, embarrassed but happy, thanked his former coach for the gift and for the support he had received through the years. As the youngster advanced to the microphone, he received a standing ovation from those on hand. In the audience were Kosse'a wife, Barbara, sitting with him at the head table, and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. D. E. Johnson, who were also praised as "All-American Parents." Supt. George H. Gentry awarded the district trophy, and he too praised the spirit and the comeback of fche Gander eleven. Morris Frank, sharp as usual as. master of ceremonies, said he thought there was more spirit at the banquet than he had noticed at recent affairs- He said the fact that the youngsters had had a season far better than expected w»-J perhaps the reason for fche high feeling. Fred Hartman also praised the team for its great showing during the past season and pointed to the traditions and heritage of Robert E. Lee athletics. ''You are the. luckiest schoolboy athletes in Texas," he said, "to have the honor of representing a school whose all-around program is so respected throughout state." t tj __ ,!_'< , He said Bay town fans sadly .sald- goodbye to the 17 graduating sen- 1 iors, but ho predicted the team *' next year would 'carry'ori. in<the" usual brilliant style of past Gander- teams. .

Which explains the interest this week in a two-fisted mauler named Mik e (Rock}') Casillo, who gets his big Madison Square Garden break on Friday night as an 8 to 5 undershot against welterweight Vines Martinez. The latest in the line of battlers sailing under the intriguing title of 'Rock}"" would seem to be a natural. He is compared, favorably or not depending on whether you are of the slugging school, to Rocky Graziano. He looks like him,' walks like him, talks like him and acts like him. More important^, in the trade, he fights like him. Casillo carries it farther than that. He even fondly tofcs a picture of his "idol," Rocky Graziano. You may consider that the final straw, if you are not a Graziano idolater. And it is not necessary to dig up a lot of old waste to say that if you aren't you have a lot of company. The Rock did a lot of things that the good, clean- cut American boy is supposed to abhor. Cassilo, fortunately, is short in most pf those departments. He is simply a 23-year-old who served an unblemished hitch in khaki and found, while driving an eight-wheel truck, that he always seemed to be mixing it up with somebody. The transition was easy. Rocky simply decided to get paid for his fisticuffs. The record insists that he can fight He has engaged in 29 professional encounters and lost only three. Seventeen of his victories were by the knockout route, and when he puts the clamps on them they have trouble moving not only that night but later on. Consider, as example, that in his last seven bouts he tins scored six kayoes. Thnse six fighters still are in semi-retirement, so you have t° more or less agree with the younp man from Blu e Island, 111., when he say s he knocks them "dead." If you saw Graziano fight, then you've seen Casillo. He's the same walloping whirlwind, both fists flying until there's nobody standing up in front of him. And productive of twirling turnstiles, he can lake the other guy "out" in the first minute or the last minute of a fight. Jack begun, his manager, never ceases being amazed a t the young man's qualities. For instance. Begun turned down a $15,000 offer to fight Carman Basilio at Svracuse to get his boy in the Garden.
