Vet Ball Hawks
Don Colors For
Sharp Shooting
No new players met the Univer
sity of British Columbia at Mc
Arthur Court last night, but to
night the Canadians will be
fuddled on the defense by many
new faces, hands and feet in the
Casaba lineup, most of whom are
returned veterans tasting colleg
iate hardwood competition for the
first time in years.
Topping the list is Army Air
forces veteran Marv Rassmussen,
who played1 a sterling brand of ball
with the squad' last term, but was
ineligible for collegiate competi
tion until tonight. Registering
three weeks late for the fall term
was enough to force the topnotch
guard out of games on the road
when he was sorely needed.
Marines, Army and Navy
Stanley Williamson, letterman
of the 1942-43 season will be toss
ing for the hoop on the glass back
board tonight after a sojourn in
the Pacific ocean area with the
marines. Roy Seeborg, classy ball
handler, also a veteran of the
3942-43 season, will be back in
harness tonight after time spent
with the army in the European
Del Smith, high scorer on last
years conference title winners, has
returned for duty under Coach
Hobson after taking time out for
work in California. These four are
certain to see action against the
Thunderbirds tonight.
Ready Later On
Falling in the category of not
being ready for tonight, but
counted on for heavy action later
in the season are three other
Casaba veterans who have recent
ly reported for action. Royal Den
ton, blue scraper with height of
six feet and eight inches, is work
ing out regularly after four years
with the AAF, mostly in the Medi
terranean area.
Ken Hume, freshman star of the
’42 season, has completed a tour
of duty with the marines in the
Pacific. Former navy man Wilson
Maynard has returned to scrap for
his letterman status of the 1941
42 season. Others are expected to
join Coach Howard Hobson and
the Casaba squad after the rigors
of registration are completed.

and aerial plays but failed, and
Penn's Evans kicked to Leicht,

a 13 yard return. On the first play

backfield fumble which Leicht re
covered lost 6 more yards. Penn
State’s Kesanovich intercepted a
long pass intended for Dodge and
the East again took over. After a
loss of three yards by the Eastern
backfield, Evan’s pass was inter
cepted by Washington's Bill Mc
Govern. Leicht's pass on the first
play was intercepted by Dekde
Duck Stops Score
Several plays netted the East
a loss of 14 yards. A fake kick
and then a pass by Evans to
Dekdebrun looked like a pay dirt
special when safety man Jake
Leicht came from behind to smear
the touchdown-bound Easterner.

the East fumbled and Upstate’s
Bob Stephens fell on the free ball.
