Grants Pass Ekes
Rally To Score
Huge Homecoming Crowd
Gets Thrill As Locals
Narrow 20-Poinr Lead
The Roseburg high school In
dlans came within an ace of mak
ing last night's homecoming fes
tivities letter perfect with an
amazing display of fourth quar
ter power, but couldn't overcome
the three touchdown lead Grants
Pass piled up in the first . half
and lost a heartbreaker, 20 to 14.
By halftime, it looked like the
Indians were slated to end their
home season as they had started
it by taking a one-sided beating.
But Roseburg turned the tables
on the heavier Caveman squad
in the second half, played the vis
itors on even terms in the third
quarter, then exploded with two
touchdowns and threatened with
a third in the final stanza.
Every available seat at Finlay
field was filled by the homecom
ing crowd even standing room
was a premium as Coach Cece
Sherwood's boys fought from be
hind in an effort to upset the far
vored Cavemen. .- ,
Too Much Power
' The Indians made a valiant try,
but it was just too much power
in the person of Craft, the Grants
Pass left halfback. The bulky
backfield ace had his own way
during that first half and no
Roseburg defensive combination
could stop him.
Five '01 Grants Pass' first nine
offensive plays saw Craft on the
carrying end his fifth try good
for a 17-yard sprint over right
tackle to pay-dirt.
Roseburg's Barry Kenny, who
played a whale of a game the
remainder of the contest, fum
bled on his own 29-yard line on
Roseburg's second play to set up
the first Caveman touchdown.
Grants Pass made it 15-0 midway
through the second quarter with
a touchdown pass from Graue to
Miller, good for 36 yards, follow
ing n siietnlnpH rirtvp lin the field
from their own 22-yard line.
The margin went to 20 points
less than four minutes later when
Miller and Graue teamed on the
same pass play to work the ball
to Roseburg's 22-yard stripe, an
other pass to Craft good for 17
yards and a center buck by Quin
ton, Caveman fullback. Craft ran
through left tackle on a single
wing formation to cross the goal
line untouched. The kick was
blocked, Grants Pass' only con
version failure in three attempts.

utes gone in the second half,
when Bill Wagner recovered a
Grants Pass fumble on the Cave
man 15-yard line. But a charg
ing line messed up Roseburg
pass attempts and the Indians
relinquished the ball on the 19.
Grants Pass runners brought
fans to their feet at this point
with several long runs, but the
visitors wound up in a hole, fol
lowing a pair of holding penal
ties. Turning Point
It was at this point that Rose
burg suddenly came to life and
the spark that did it was the In
dians' first sizable gain a 25
yard pass from quarterback Ron
nie Strickling to Dale Blanck.
The quarter ended with the ball
on tne urants rass ju-yara line,
fourth down and still a long way
Roseburg struck, and struck
fast in that final period. Refusing
to kick on fourth down, Strickling
tossed another pass this one
good for 20 yards to Frank Ol
son, who was dropped on the
Grants Pass 10-yard line. Bill
Van Horn raced to the one-yard
stripe on an end sweep and
Strickling sneaked it over from
there. In 48 seconds a"fter the
quarter opened, Roseburg rack
ed up seven points on the touch
down and Weber's kick.
Four minutes later, Roseburg
was again knocking at the Cave
man's door, following a poor
Grants Pass punt and a series of
quick-opening running plays. Van
Horn, Weber and Scott teamed to
put the ball on the one-foot stripe.
With fourth down coming up,

Roseburg fought desperately
for possession of the ball from
then on and gained it with less
than a minute left in the game.
With time running out, it was
strictly a passing game for che
Indians. They made it to their
own 47-yard line from the Rose
burg 20, but the clock was
against them and the final play
a pitch-out to Van Horn around
right end was good for only eight
yards as the gun sounded.
The game's outcome was' a
double disappointment to 13 of
the Roseburg players, who, as
seniors, were performing on Fin
lay field for the last time. Trib
ute was paid to these future
"alums" as well as graduates of
former years, by the senior nigh
school band during halftime cer

An ex-groom was being held here
under $12,000 ball and a racing

William K. Weaver, 33 an un
employed groom from Nogales,
Ariz., pleaded innocent to seven
charges of maliciously interfer

While Weaver was being held
for the April term of the Rock

$13.60 on a $2.00 wager.
Thereupon Weaver, according
to the T.R.P.B. authorities, tele
