Ivan “Blossom” McCaskill,
former law student here and
now insurance salesman, was
charged with disorderly conduct
and resisting an officei' at the
Thanksgiving Day Classic foot
ball game between NCC and
A and T College, November 27.
The case is to be continued in
Recorder’s Court, with Attorney
M. Hugh Thompson defending
McCaskill.
Ivan was struck with a night
stick by James B. Samuels, local
police lieutenant, when McCas

sition of the sidelines on O’Kelly
Field near the end of the game.
When McCaskill, who was talk

the sidelines, Samuels gave him
a hard blow on the head with his
night stick. McCaskill was struck
again across the neck by Sam--
uels when he asked the officer
not to strike him again with the
stick. McCaskill then went to the
ground in pain. The force of

In view of the high caliber of
