East earns Hula Bowl victory HONOLULU (AP) - Quarterback Norris Weese of Mississippi came off the bench to inspire a bruising ninning attack as the E^st downed the West 24-14 Saturday in the Hula Bowl football game. Weese ran 34 yards for the East’s first touchdown and directed two other scoring drives. The 19S-pound Weese, who ran for 92 yards and passed for 35 yards, was named the game’s outstanding offensive player. Heisman Trophy winner John Cappelletti of Penn State and Jim Jennings of Rutgers had one-yard touchdown runs for the East and Chuck Ramsey of Wake Forest kicked a 19-yard field goal. Ben Malone of Anzona State accounted for all the West scoring with a 33-yard pass reception and a seven-yard run. The heavier East team contained the West within its own 30-yard line in the first half, but the offence didn’t start moving until Weese replaced starter David Jaynes of Kansas. Weese directed a 49-yard drive to the West one-yard line, but lost a fumble there to West linebacker Tome Poe of Washington State. The East got the ball again on the 36 after a short West punt. One play later, Weese got a key block from tackle John Hicks of Ohio State, reversed his field to the left arid scored from 34 yards out. Weese had a 26-yard run in the next East drive which was capped by Ramsey’s 19-yard field goal. Despite losing the statistical battle, the West capitalized on two big plays to keep the outcome in doubt until the final minutes. Daryl McOallion of Houston intcR^ted a Weese pass at the East 46 early in the third Sifter and Arizona State’s nny White hit Malone for the touchdown six plays later.

Meanwhile the Longhoms are probably wishing right now they could replay Sun* day’s match against the Mets. The locals with more than their share of problems during the 60 minutes of action found themselves trailing 4-0 after the first period and 7-0 by the end of the second. Rick Zaperniuk was a thorn in the Longhorns’ side as he paced his teammates with three goals and an assist. Dave Morrow gave the Longhorns a little more trouble with two goals while singles came off the sticks of Brian Kinsman. Joe Poplowski and Craig lopojnisKy. Bemie Syrenne and Ron Krikke repUed for the locals, who outshot the Mets 43-36 and took seven of 15 nilnor penalties.

I’ve been in the league 22 years and I’ve got some pride. He thinks it’s quitting, but it isn’t easy to admit you’re through "1 just had to come to that realization. They don’t want kids to sit out, and they don't want me to go to the minors because I’ll be taking some kid's place. I’m throwing away (26,000 by retiring now, but I can’t agre« to sit on the bench and take their money.” Blair, giving his version of the incident, said: "Yes, I got a little curt with Dean.

He’ll continue to learn over the next few years.” Most of Sunday’s round was played in a cold drizzle.
