Castiglia to Quit Grid, Remain
Redskin; Turley Clipper Coach By Lewis F. Atchison “You should have been here five minutes ago.” said that well-tanned traveler from Cali fornia^ George Preston Mar shall. “Jimmy Castiglia was Just here and you missed a good story.” Then it was true that the fullback had quit the Redskins • In a hull? “He’s quitting football,” Mar shall admitted. “He’s the father of another girl—that’s five girls—and he's got to go to work. I hear Eddie Canter’s jealous of Jim.” Castiglia, it developed, had dropped by the Wigwam to pick up a copy of the club's Indian head insignia. He’s going into the trucking business on his own and it will be named, of all things, the Redskin Trucking Co. But that wasn't all the news over on Ninth street, where things begin popping when the well-tanned traveler returns. Doug Turley, Redskin end, has signed as head coach of the Wilmington* Clippers and spent a couple of days conferring with Wilbur Moore about backfleld pla y Paul McKee was in town signing up prospects for his boys camp in New Hampshire . and there are a couple of player deals on the fire that may stir up some excitement. Later Marshall had lunch with Rear Admiral E. C. Ewen, Navy chief of public relations and an old-time Academy star. "If you're looking for features the admiral would be a good one,” said Marshall. "He s the only player in history to captain two Naval Academy football teams. He played in that Navy Great Lakes game in 1819 that they still talk about and could give you some interesting dope on the game.” We were more interested in what he thought of that other admiral s chances of giving the Redskins a winner this year. "He'll be an excellent coach,” skid the admiral. "I think Admiral Whelchel knows more football than any coach in the business and he knows how to Jbandle men. He ll do a good job.” Marshall had a report from Harry Gilmer, also the proud papa of another girl, and it was good. Li'l Harry is ready to go, he says, and apparently as good as ever after a session of spring practice with the Alabama U. squad. "I haven't heard from Sammy Baugh,” continued Marshall, "and vital statistics are slow coming in lrom Texas, but didn’t Sam s wife have an other youngster last winter?” There was more to report, but Page Hufty, a Nat baseball fan. was honking at the front dpbr, anxious to get £oing to tne ball park and Admiral Ew'en had to get back to his mimeograph machine. There'll be more news from the wig wam soon. The chief will see to that. Taylor Star as A. U. Takes Series Lead Righthander Johnny McLachlan drew the pitching assignment for American University today as the Eagles moved to Chestertown, Md.. to play Washington College in the second game of a three-game series for the Mason-Dixon Con ference baseball championship. All he had to do was emulate Dick Taylor's 7-hit stint yesterday to make Coach Staff Cassell and A. U. supporters happy. Taylor, a thin, bespectacled youngster who looks like anything but a pitcher, twirled the Eagles to a 2-0 decision over Washington here yesterday. It was his second consecutive win over the Shoremen and he went along today just in case he's needed for relief duty. Whether starting or reliefing floundering brethren, it's all the same to the Western High School alumnus. Taylor has appeared in 11 of A. U.’s 14 games this season, chalking up six victories against one defeat on his own, and saving several other games. Taylor held American to three hits last week but v;as nicked for seven yesterday. He needed a per fect pickoff throw to first by Catcher Lamon that removed one of two Washington batters on base in the sixth, to help ease him over a bad situation. At all other times he was the master. Ken Sullivan of Washington was even stingier with hits, giving up only two. But a couple of walks In the first inning, a balk, and Joe Hossick's long flay gave the Eagles one run. American scored again in the seventh when Taylor was safe on an error, advancing on a walk and infield out, and came home on Hossick's single. Cantwell Still Unbeaten Prank Cantwell remained unde feated this season while leading Georgetown University’s tennis team to a 7-2 victory over Loyola of Baltimore in matches yester day at the Hilltop.
