Contract With Uncle Sam
(NFH-PIO)—Uncle Sam is real
ly thinning the ranks of America's
top athletes. This time the friendly
summons from the President has
deprived the Washington Redskins
professional football team of one of
their prize fullbacks.
His name is James D. McCauley
now a private of the 23rd Training
Co. Reserve Command at North
Fort Hood. McCauley hasn't dipped
very deeply into Army life so he
is withholding comment on how
much he will like it. One thing he
is sure of its quite a change.
When called for an interview by
the North Fort Hood PIO he was
busying himself building a shelf
in his tent. McCauley is short and
powerful and in his meaty paws
a hammer and nail become fragile
instruments. Commenting on his
carpenters skill McCauley says
"I'm like a watchmaker with a
swollen thumb" but the resource
fulness that helped him through
many a gridiron battle stood him
in good stead. However he desert
ed his nearly built shelf willingly.
W Like his famous teammate
•'Slingin' Sammy" Baugh Mc
Cauley is a Texan. He calls Weath-
erford his home. Already famous
for having nurtured Mary Martin
of "South Pacific" fame the atmos
phere of Weatherford perhaps help
ed McCauley who never played
football till his senior year at
Weatherford High yet he took over
as Varsity fullback on his first
try. The coach needed only one
look at McCauley's bulldozer shoul
ders to conjure visions of crumbl
ing enemy linesmen.
McCauley never played second
string to anyone till he reached the
Redskins where the great 'Sooner'
Leon Heath was fullback. But as
McCauley says "Its not the same
in pro football." In the terriffic
heat of one of the World's most
competetive games one man can't
hold the pace too long. The record
bears him out in his few months
with the Redskins he played on
the offense nearly half the time.
Since he first donned cleats for
Weatherford High School Mc
Cauley has spent each Fall plow
ing through the lines. Yet con
trary to popular opinion McCauley
doesn't consider football hard work.
Of course he doesn't smoke drink
nor keep late hours during the sea
son but hour for hour he doesn't
think a man can find easier work.
"Football is more a way of life
than a job" most of the rewards
innot be put in the bank.
In his one season McCauley
•matched wit and muscle with the
Los Angeles Rams the Dallas Tex-
ans the Detroit Lions and the
Chicago Cardinals to name a few.

Cauley figures he is usually good
for about three to five yards
McCauley has two older brothers
who have played football "Mutt"
and "Snooks" McCauley. He says
"They were both good" but they
did not elect to become pros. It
was their urging that brought him
out for football his senior year at
Weatherford High and pointed the
way toward his future career.

23rd Training Co. North Fort Hood uses a little of the old football
spirit during bayonet drill. Private McCauley a former fullback
for the Washington Redskins football team figures "Though the
bayonet has no future in football the football training comes in
handy on the bayonet range. (Photo by Hansen.)

THE ARMORED SENTINEL
The hardest job to hold in the
American League these days seems
to be that of a first baseman. With
the recent trade of burly Ferris
Fain to Chicago from Philadelphia
for Eddie Robinson only Washing
ton's Mickey Vernon can be classi
fied as a first sacker with a steady
home and he has held that job on
ly since 1950.
Fain twice a batting champ with
the Athletics replaces Comiskey

Ft. Wortk Texas
WITH 10c COUPON GOOD ON NEXT
Park's Eddie Robinson a long-ball
hitter well up in the runs-batted-
in department. Elsewhere first
sackers continue their nomadic
Just what advantage Chicago or
Philadelphia can claim by the
Fain-Robinson swap won't be de
termined until the season is un
derway. However the deal kept
the endless shuttle of first base
men very much in the news.
