(AP) — Statistically, Paul "Bear" Bryant's South team routed the North in the inaugural American Bowl college all-star football game in Tampa Saturday. But the Rebels lost 21-15 on the scoreboard, where it counts, and the craggy-faced head coach for the South returned to the Alabama campus with two losses in one week. Alabama, which picked up l.kiee national championships and 10 straight post season bowl bopearances under Bryant, lost c">10 to Missouri in the Gator Bowl Dec. 28. Bryant jokingly suggested before the American Bowl that, if tie did lose two in a row, the folks back home may not let him return. "I wouldn't have thought that could happen, and I don't particularly like it," said Bryant of the two losses.

DOLLENS SHOE STORE Southern Illinois Leading Shoe Store 1003 Broadway Mt. Vernon By JOE MOOSHEL Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) — Surprising Illinois' moment of truth comes up early in the newly launched Big Ten basketball race. The eighth-ranked Mini, winners of 10 straight including an overwhelming 80-58 debut over Minnesota Saturday* take their show to Lafayette Tuesday night to face Purdue and Rick Mount. Purdue, one of the stronger title contenders in the league, opened its Big Ten bid with an 86-80 triumph at Wisconsin. Mount, who led the Boilermakers with 33 points, broke a 7373 tie with a rtire four-point play and the Badgers never caught up. Mount's basket made a 7 B -' 7 ;"i and the official called an intentional foul and awarded Mount two free throws instead PREP SCORES McLeansboro 65, Noiris City 53 St. Michael 68, Ida Crown 63 Angel Guardian 69, Cathedral 64 St. Benedict 104, St. Joseph 33 CHICAGO (AP) — Big Ten basketball standings including games of Saturday, Jan. 4: Conference All Games W.

Northwestern and Ohio State also picked 1 up important victories on the road Saturday while Michigan needed the home floor advantage to stun Iowa 99-92 in overtime. Baskets by Rudy Tomjanovich and Dennis Stewart in the final 20 seconds enabled the Wolverines to force the game into overtime, a period completely dominated by Michigan and Tomjanovich who scored eight of his 26 points in the extra period. Northwestern rang up its ninth straight triumph with an 85-71 triumph at Michigan State and 1 Ohio State blew a 20-point lead and then hung on for a 90-82 triumph over Indiana. Although the Illinois-Purdue game will feature Tuesday night's program, two other games are on tap with Michigan having an opportunity to grap a second conference win at home against Indiana. The other game features a pair of losers with Wisconsin at Michigan State. Big Ten teams will then rest until Saturday which finds Indiana at Iowa, Michigan at Minnesota, Illinois at Northwestern in a regionally-televised matinee and Wisconsin at Ohio State. Purdue not only is idle Saturday but the Boilermakers will be off after Tuesday night until Jan. 25.

Okay, sports fans, h6re's today's Kwickie Kwiz. In the past 25 years, how many times has it been an all-Southern Illinois championship in the state high school basketball tournament? You said Mt. Vornon-Hillsboro in 1949 and Collinsville - Herrin in 1957? It says so right there on the tournament program? Wrong. In 1943, the year the book says Paris beat Moline, there was another, champion. Carbondale Attucks beat Madison Dunbar in a game that was played before the Sweet Sixteen quarter finals ever got started. It was in Champaign and it was the state tournament, all right, but it had separate billing on the program. Attucks and Dunbar played for what was called "the championship of the colored conference." Some who saw that game — and the one the year before when Attucks beat Cairo Sumner for the same dubious title — thought Coach John Q. Clark's Bluebirds could have taken it all. "Uncle Tom Sideshow" Inconceivable as it must seem to this generation, S o uthern Illinois prep basketball playoffs were segregated until the year after Attacks' 1943 appearance in what the Chicago Negro Newspaper, "The Daily Defender," called an "Uncle Tom sideshow" to the state roundball carnival. — The Defender's editorial plus a stand by then Anna High school coach Paul Houghton and subsequent efforts by Benton's B. • Floyd Smith, president of the Illinois High School Association, are credited by J. C. Penn, former Attucks principal, for breaking the ice that locked downstate negro and white high schools in different worlds of competition. Houghton, according to Penn, opened his school's gym doors when other tourney sites had theirs closed to the all- Negro schools. In 1944, the custom was dead and the sideshow ended. Charles Arnett, a 45- year- old Carbondale barber, was a starting guard on the Attucks teams of '42 and '43. He recalls that they played on a cir- cuti of all- Negro schools like Cairo Sumner, Madison, Colp, East St. Louis and Brookport, 10 of them altogether. Won Valier Holiday Their infrequent competition against white schools included Christopher, Ina, Cambria, Galatia, Kinmundy — and they were invited to the Valier Holiday Invitational which they won in 1943. Earlier on, when Penn had confronted state prep athletics czars with the question, why are we excluded from tourney eliminations when we pay asso- ciatidn fees just like everybody else, he got a compromise agreement. The state group helped pay Attucks' way to national Negro prep basketball meets in Gary, Ind., and Roanoke, Va. The years of Attucks' big moments in Champaign were results of another signular agree' ment. The 10 downstate schools were divided into two districts, Big winners in each were invited to Champaign for the "colored conference c h a m pion- ship." The starters on the '43 squad were Charles (Bean) Arnett, Alfred (Doughbelly) Terry, Benard Terry, Frank Exum, and L. B. (Red) Owens. Owens went into the Army with Arnett after they got out of high school, and he's still in, serving in Viet Nam as a sergeant. Penn became assistant to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction and Coach Clark was principal of Attucks when it was merged in 1964 with Carbondale Community. Dreams of Centralist Going to Champaign was a big thrill for Arnett, and he treasures still his mementos of high school basketball. But he shakes his head when he thinks about the 1942 Carbondle Attucks team, on which he was a junior. "I only wish we could have played Centralia in the real tournament. We were that good. I think we could have beat them." That was the year Cen tralia, with its fabulous Dwight Eddleman, defeated Paris for the championship.

One Minute From The Square Roll PAINT injured Shoemaker To Ride Again First Mate Wins Malibu Stakes At Santa Anita By ED SCHUYLER JR. Associated Press Sports Writer First Mate won the Malibu Stakes at Santa Anita, but it was one of the spectators who made the big news in thoroughbred racing over the weekend. Willie Shoemaker, who was on hand io see First Mate score by three-quarters of a length over Skookum last Saturday, said he hopes to return to riding in four to six weeks. The injured leg that sidelined him is almost completely healed, and the 37 : year-old, five-time national riding champion said nothing can reinjure it "unless I fall off a horse again." That's what happened last Jan. 23 when Shoemaker's mount, Bel Bush, went down in a race at Santa Anita. Shoemaker suffered a brdke femur bone, and it appeared his great career might be ended. But, he said Saturday, "My hip is 75 to 80 per cent healed and I'll be able to ride.—I'll start working ponies Monday." MT. VERNON REALTY CO. THOMAS A. PUCKETT. Broker Mt.
