Maybe you don’t know him by that name. His real name is John Trimble, jr., but he had an interesting boxing career under the monicker of Johnny Fulton. Reason we mention it I today is that John will go to work for the last time Mon-L day at Quaker Oats. Helk^H turned 65 Jan. 20 and is retiring after 19 years. He and his wife live at 851 A avenue NE. “I hope to do a lot of fishing, hunting and playing golf,’’ John said. “My brother. Oeie (father of the john Trimble ice skaters and track men. Ode, jr.. Bruce and Ralph), has retired, so tho two of us will have time for lots of recreation together.’’ John became a pro boxer in 1927. There was no amateur boxing or Golden Gloves then. He fought for John Fryrear and the late Frank Whitney at the old C. R. auditorium—later the Eagles club until it was torn down for urban renewal. “All of nu 85 fights were as a welterweight,” John recalled, “hut I weigh about 218) now. I would guess I lost about IO of my tights. I met Battling Nelson of Waterloo in nine bouts around the state and I think I won six of them. “One of my biggest thrills was fighting Kid Leonard, who was boxing Nelson at the old auditorium in the bout in which Nelson was killed. I met leonard a week later in Moline and lost a close decision Later Leonard boat Tony Zale before /ale was middleweight champ and whipped him so badly that Zale was out of boxing for a year. From Time Check “Most of my inuits wore in Cedar Rapids. hut I also fought in Moline. Omaha, St. Baul and I ais Angeles My biggest purse? Oh, aliout $500 when I beat Joe Rivers but rn those days $25 a week was a big wage ” Trimble was born in C. It. and grew up in Time (’In k. then a nigged neighborhood on the near northw t side Caddy Kelly and Joe It' ! whose real names were Joe Grail and Bete Revna, respectively, were among other boxers from Time Check “I borrowed the name Johnny Fulton from one of my friends.” laughed John. “Most of us used other names so if we got heat it wouldn't look bad in the paper." Trimble has enjoyed seeing films of old title lights on TV recently. He said Jack Dempsey always was his favorite, but be also admired middleweights Harry (itch. Mickey Walker, Sugar Ray Robinson and Jack LaMotta Trimble served as a judge or trainer during almost every one of the Golden Gloves tout naments sponsored bv The Gazette. He also Used to help the late Alex Fidler with the refereeing occasionally. John has two sons and two daughters, as well as seven grandchildren. They’ll enjoy looking through this scrapbook, as we did Saturday. It's a pleasure to congratulate Johnny Fulton Trimble on his retirement at Quaker Oats and fine boxing career. Pass the Hash football —Rumors in Iowa City have been saying Frank Lauterbur, former Iowa ocach. is about to announce a connection with a pro football team the champion Miami Dolphins being mentioned in some cases. We called FXL Saturday and he quickly denied he has any new job. although he has talked to a number of people. Probably the Dolphins angle came up because FXL was defensive line coach of the Baltimore Colts in 1955-56 when Don Shula was a defensive back for the Colts. A year or two later Shula retired as a player and began the coaching career that has lei! to the pinnacle with the Dolphins. OOO —Bob Lemmings, Iowa’s new r coach, may reap a bonus in hiring Tom Cecchini as one of his defensive assistants. Cecchini has been head coach at Xavier of Cincinnati, but that school has dropped football It is likely a number of Xavier players will transfer to other schools, and some of them may come to Iowa. “That is a possibility,” Commings admitted Friday, “but that’s not the reason I wanted Tom Cecchini on my staff. He is a fine coach. In fact, we had to go right down to the wire to get him. as he had an offer to join the Syracuse staff.” \ny Xavier players transferring lo Iowa would In* eligible immediately. The NCAA permits that in eases where schools drop football. This is what happened when Marquette gave up the sport about 12 years ago. One of the players who left Marquette was Karl Kassulke. the Minnesota Vikings star who was so badly injured in a motorcycle ac cident last summer Karl transferred to Drake, where his coach was Bus Merles, now the Vikings’ offensive backfield coach We asked Bob Commings about a statement he made when lie was campaigning for the Iowa job: That In* was sure a couple of assis taut coaches oil other Big 'Pen staffs would join him at Iowa if he got the job We wondered if the fact Commings was hired on a year-to-year basis discouraged some of the aides. , “Not at all.” lie replied “There were three Big Ten assistants who are close friends of mine, but it turned out they had good reasons for .staying where they are, and I eertamlv don't blame them, although I would have liked having them on my stall ” The three reportedly were: Dick Moseley of Minnesota, Rudy Hubbard of Ohio State and Jim Grutten of Indiana.

In the second half, however, it By (.us Schrader Gazette Sports Writer IOWA CITY Michigan, still bitter about losing the Big Ten s Rose Bowl assignment, almost blew its hopes for a post-season basketball bid here Saturday night. Tin; Wolverines trailed up-jstart Iowa 82-78 with 24 minutes left in an overtime, but then recovered for an 86-84 victory that kept them one jump back of Purdue in the Big Ten •race. “Our press won it for us in the overtime,” beamed Michigan Coach John Orr, who figured in a near-riot here a year ago. “One of our freshmen, Steve Grote, got that three-point play when we were down four points in the overtime. “Then our Joe Johnson stole (the pass from Candy La Prince after the throw-in put us ahead to stay. It was a 5-point play.” Orr referred to (Irote’s short shot with 2 28 to go. He was fouled by Iowa’s Scott Thompson and made the free throw to cut the gap to 82-81. When ICandy got the ball on the throw-in, he was hemmed in by two Wolverines and his deflected pass was taken by Johnson for an easy layup under the bucket. “I was just trying to get the pass into the middle.” said Candy, “when a Michigan man deflected it and it went right to Johnson. But we had plenty of other chances to win this one.” The Hawks didn't start out that way. fndeed. Michigan raced off to a 13-0 lead after 5:47 before Iowa could score. Then the Wolverines fizzled like 'Comet Kohoutek as the Hawks hammered away in a game of catch-up. “Michigan surprised us with that zone defense,” explained Coach Dick Schultz, “and our players stood around and looked at themselves. That made two ends of the court we were standing around, as we weren’t doing anything un offense either. “When we finally did get going, we made the mistake we have made so often — getting impatient. We would cut the gap to three or four points but then let it slip back to nine or IO. “We had a momentary lack of poise in the overtime. The thing that killed us was the three-point play.” Bright sjx)t on both sides was Ned Fegebank, Iowa senior who has not been consistent at hitting shots, lately. He rained in 14 of 22 shots, and never got a set up. And In* never drew a free throw or committed a foul, even though he was guarding Campy Russell, the Big Ten’s top scorer. “Yes, 28 points is tm college career high," Neil said. “It was one of my best shooting nights ever, as I never had to shoot many long shots in high school. “I have guarded Campy before, of course I lust try to make sure he doesn t get that first step on me, because then he’s gone I guess he got most of his (joints late in the game when he’d slick the ball right in my face and make those long shots Russell got only I t points, and ID.
