Dick Musial

Sixteen hundred miles from his St. Louis home after his first game on the West Coast, Stan Musial stared thoughtfully at the locker room floor and considered his son Dick. "Having a well-known father can work both ways. In some cases it can hurt." Quite obviously it has not hurt young Dick, a 17-year-old senior at a St. Louis high school.

Dick Musial is a good student, a fine athlete and the totally unawed son of a famous father. A slight but speedy halfback, Dick scored three touchdowns in the big game last fall and after a little chat with Terry Brennan aimed for and was accepted by Notre Dame. Dick switched from baseball to track in high school, last year ran the anchor leg that won his school the 880-yard relay district title and this spring competes regularly in the 100- and 220-yard sprints. His best time for the hundred is 10.3 seconds, fast enough to make his father back out of Dick's challenge to race.
