Wabash, with a 32-12 decision over former member Plymouth; was the only victor. Peru, in the only conference game scheduled,, conquered a stubborn Hartford City "eleven 20-0 only after the Airedales held them scoreless through the first half, and penetrated to the Peru five yard line in that half before losing the ball. •In Friday night games, Greenfield earned a 20-7 victory over Alexandria, in which Steve Eden .tallied the losers only T-D and added the extra point. Elwood -won the battle of statistics against an undefeated Madison Heights 13-6 with errors the difference between a win and loss while Tipton fell ,to fifth rated Cathedral 13-12 with a nullified touchdown and a fumble on the Irish three yard line costing the Blue Devils big opportunities. Lyle Robinson kept jn the conference scoring race with Elwood's only touchdown; Peru's Gayle Bomar added two more touchdowns and Denny Hunt .two extra points to stay with the leaders; Sophomore Bob Raver tallied two -Huntington T ; D's in place of injured Jerry ISfcanks£ Dan Crouch and Jim RumSaugh scored the Tipton touchdowns while Wabash got diversified scoring from Randy Pell, Terry Sutton, Bill Under and Dick Gifford. A heavy conference schedule this week could change the entire complexion of the standings as Elwood visits Tipton in a clash of the two league leaders, while third place Peru is at home to fourth place Alexandria. Huntington in the only non- league game entertains Columbia City seeking its second win of the year and Wabash hosts Hartford City in a game that sees each team going for its first conference victory.

LANGFORD UPI Sports Writer . NEW YORK (UPI) — The Kentucky Wildcats have clawed their way back into the national college football rankings after a 13-year struggle. The Wildcats led a general shakeup of the United Press International Board of Coaches ratings this week by jumping into the top 10 for the first time since Sept. 19, 1951, staking over seventh place. Texas maintained its first- place standing and third-ranked Alabama and sixth-ranked Ohio State held their places from the first weekly ratings of the 35 coaches last week. But everything else was turned upside down as Illinois advanced from fourth to second; Michigan took over fourth, and Notre Dame moved into fifth, its highest standing in three years. Three other newcomers to the top 10 were Nebraska, No. 8; UCLA, No. 9 and Syracuse, No. 10. . Kentucky has earned its spot with successive upsets of the two pre-season favorites in the Southeastern Conference, Mississippi and Auburn. The Wildcats lost all five of their SEC games last season, but have •unleashed a powerful offense this year which ripped through two of the best defenses in the conference for 47 points, with the running of junior Rodger Bird, the passing of junior quarterback Rick Norton to end Rick Kestner. Texas drew 27 first-place ballots, followed by Alabama with three Illinois with two and Michigan, Ohio State and Kentucky with one each. Illinois held only a one-point margin for second place over Alabama with 259 points to 258 for the Crimson Tide. Texas totaled 332 out of a maximum 350. Points are awarded on a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis for votes from first to 10th place. The second 10 was headed by LSU in 11th place with Michi gan State and North Carolina State tied for 12th. Mississippi ranked 14th followed in order by Southern California, Georgia Tech, Arkansas, Wyoming and Oregon. Florida, Arizona State and Iowa tied for 20th. NEW YORK (UPI) — The United Press International major college football ratings with the first place votes -and iwon- lost records in parentheses:.^ u ON THE SIDELINES BY HAM kt66 Well, the so called "big game" is pajEt. But the actual big games are still ahead. No matter what we may think of last week's outcome, nothing is going to change the final score. What is important is that the halfway, point has! nom( been reached in the schedule of all conference teams, and at least for Tipton, the tougher games remain to be played. Scouting ind i c a t e s that Elwood and Peru are the clubs to beat, but don't forget that Wabash tied Peru 21-21 and last week thoroughly shellacked former CIC member Plymouth 32-12 and Tipton winds up the season with those defending champion Apaches. Interspersed between those outings is Noblesvflle, (beginning to come into its own now after successive victories, over Indianapolis Howe and New Castle,, the latter a real stunner, and a igame with Alexandria, a lot improved over last year's Tiger team and one which will be smarting to atone on its own field, for the 63-6 pounding the Satans gave them here at Tipton last year. So the Blue Devils have a lot of reason to stop pining over what might have been and face squarely to the future. , Plenty of Praise,In defeat last week, they earned more than their share of laurels.

JEFFERSON STREET " TIPTON, INDIANA RIDE WALT DISNEY'S MAGIC SKYWAY ATTHE FORD MOTOR COMPANlT^WONDtt JWTUNDA.-NEW-YQRK WORLD'S FAIR -° they'd like to cut is the CIC,; championship, and aside from Noblesville, all the remaining contests count toward that. Possibly the ibiggesf is this Friday in the time-honored rivalry' with Etwood's Panthers. Even in a weak season ' Elwood has always played against Tipton in a manner that made it foolish to regard the record books. This year is far from a weak one for the Panthers. They too had tough moments last week and scouts who watched them play the undefeated Madison Heights team say that only a couple of miscues cost them that game. Elwood has good scoring punch. They-are second only to Tipton in offense in the CIC with 98 points in five outings or a 22 per game average. A decision awaits coach Moses too, in view of the Panther scoring. Many games are decided on extra points. In this department Elwood has a better record than the Satans. The Panthers hev made good on 10 out of 15, while Tipton is only 10 of 19. Both teams will be working on this department. What Elwood Says Gene Conard, the Elwood sports scribe, was in the stands Saturday night at Cathedral and was tremendously impressed with the Satans. Presumably, however, he was accompanied by the Elwood coaches on a scouting mission for this Friday's game. Conard told us this morning that he felt if Tipton had won 1 the kickoff and received, the whole game would have been different. "Your boys were obviously jittery, but if they'd ' received the kickoff, and had to run the ball, they'd have been over the jitters right away. As it was, the other team had the] ball and your jitters, your uncertainty until you settled down, let Cathedral get a quick touchdown they wouldn't have gotten otherwise. After that you played them to a standstill.' Conard was tremendously impressed with the plays of Lennie Tragesser. ''I saw him make six straight tackles. Not always but six straight times he was on the man with the ball . '. . he's great!" Elwood Shook Up Conard confirmed that starting halfback John Burton will be out of the lineup for the Tipton game. He carried the ball on the second play of the game for Elwood and notched a six yard gain against Madison Heights. Just as he went to get to his feet another player fell on him and gave him a sprained ankle so bad that it is now in a cast and it is proable he will not play the rest of the season. Conard also passed on a bit of information which we're inclined to take with a grain of salt. He said he was.told by coach Larry Shook that three boys, all starters and senior lettermen, have ibeen benched for disciplinary reasons. Without going into details, the three are halfback Rich Leavell a real good one; offensive and defensive guard Dave Lewis; defensive linebacker Ken Franklin. Conard asked his coach if the boys would be reinstated for the Tipton game in view ofj its importance, and Shook said, "No, I don't play that way." Well, every coach has his own psychological approaches to keying a team up for victory or in imbuing the opponent with overconfidence. We don't know what coach Shook has in mind. We are genuinely sorry about John Burton's ankle injury for no one likes to see a boy doing his best get injured, but when Tipton meets Elwood, we'd like to see Tipton able to win against the best team the Panthers can field. We know that is what the kids and coach Moses also want to see. •£ut« {Satisfaction Guaranteed) Make Septic Tanks Work Like New ASK YOUR DEALER FOR Kteoit»£tti-tftt TIPTON, COUNTY FARIvi BUREAU CO-OP (Reg. U.5. Pat Off.) By MILTON R I Of MAN UPI Sports Writer TOKYO (UPI) — Everyone's an expert, even 6,000 miles from the scene, and that includes United States Olympic athletes who picked' the New York Yankees Tuesday to beat the 'St. Louis Cardinals in seven games in the World Series. Understandably, some of Uncle Sam's athletes were much more concerned about their own chances than those of the Yankees or the Cardinals and one particular swimmer, who shall go nameless, was so busy getting his stroke down pat that he predicted the World Series would'.go eight games. For the most part, however, the U. S. contingent here, men and women alike, are greatly interested in the outcome of the scores and of the 60 athletes polled, 32 picked the Yankees, 24 named the Cardinals and four claimed no opinion one way or the other. Among those who liked the Yankees' chances, the - consensus was that it would take them seven games to beat the Cardinals. - Picks Yanks Jim Burke, a member of the wrestling team from San Francisco, picked the Yankees because he feels "they have stronger pitching than the Cardinals," and little Ike Berger, weightlifter from New York, also went along with the American League champions. "Imagine being from New York and picking anyone else?" Berger laughed. "They wouldn't let me come back home." Ken Sitzberger, a springboard diver from Chicago," and pole vaulters Fred Hansen of Cuero, Tex., and Bill Pemelton of Mercedes, Tex., all chose the Yankees. But the Cardinals drew heavy support from members of the U. S. basketball team. Princeton ace Bill Bradley" of Crystal City, Mo., and Lucius. Jackson of Houston both picked the Cards to' win in five and Oregon State star Mel Counts predicted they would prevail in seven. Bradley Likes Cards I'm from Missouri and the Yanks have to show me they're better than the Cardinals," said Bradley. 'I don't think they are. can tell me the Yanks have better pitching than the Cardinals. And keep your eye on Lou Brock. He could be the star of" the Series." Jackson based his opinion on what he called the Cardinals' superior ,power, "I know the Yankees have Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris" he said, "but I'll take fellows like Ken Boyer, Bill White, Curt Flood, Mike Shannon and Brock. They can hit that ball, too. Besides, the Yanks have been on and off all season; the' Cardinals have been more consistent." Counts looked for a "close series" end said he felt the Cardinals' pitching and determination would spell the difference.. "The Cardinals proved their determination over the last few weeks," Counts said. Everyone said it was between the Phillies and Reds, but the Cardinals came on to beat them both. I think they'll beat the Yankees, too." STOTTLEMYRE MVP NEW YORK (UPI)—Mel Stottlemyre, called up in August by the Yankees to help pitch them to a pennant, was named Most Valuable Pitcher in the International League Monday, for his 13-3 record with Richmond. RETAINS TITLE ' HELSINKI, Finland (UPI)— Olli Maeki of Finland retained his European junior welterweight crown Monday night by a technical knockout over Algerian Aissa Hashas of Paris in the eighth round. CALDWELL WINS LONDON (UPI) — Johnny Caldwell of Ireland, the British and Empire bantamweight champion, won by a technical knockout over Rafael Fernandez of Spain Monday night in the eighth round of a non-title bout. Injuries Hamper Cardinals, Yanks As Series Nears By STEVE SNIDER UPI Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (UPI) — The St. Louis Cardinals and a number of dazed fans prepared Tuesday to give their native son Yogi Berra and his New York Yankees a royal welcome — followed by a royal "boot. Berra, who left The Hill sec- tionof this city nearly 20 years ago to make his fortune with the Yankees, is expected to get a good-natured reception when he flies in with the American League champions about noon. After the formalities, however, Yogi will be wished nothing but bad luck in the World Series starting Wednesday — including the sidelining of regular shortstop Tony Kubek and,of* course, some improvement in the condition of Cardinal third baseman Ken Boyer's ailing left leg. Kubek Looks Doubtful The word from New York, pending the Yankees' arrival, is that Kubek — regarded as one of the better shortstops and a veteran World Series performer — probably will be sidelined with a sprained wrist. In the event be is unable to play, he- is expected to be replaced by Phil Linz, the' carefree, young infielder who incurred Berra's wrath with his famous harmonica solo following an important Yankee defeat. Last Minute Decision Berra probably will make the decision on Kubek after a light workout -at Busch Stadium when he must decide whether to take Tony off the World Series roster and add firstrbase- raan Mike Hegan. ' "I know I'm out of the first game,", said Kubek, who has been nursing the injury for a week. It's up to Yogi about the series." Cards Have Problem Although the loss of Kubek might upset the smoot functioning Yankee infield to some degree, the Cardinals face a more serious loss should : Boyer be hobbled bf his leg injury. National Leaguers point out that Boyer has been shading far to his' left to compensate for shortstop Dick Groat's "position play" and that a seriously ailing Boyer could mean a gaping hole in the left side of the St. Louis,infield. In addition, the Cardinals' attack would be seriously hurt without the bat of 33-year-old Ken who led the majors with 119 runs batted in this. season and spiced his .295 batting average with 24 home runs. lA Mild Tear Boyer—whose brother, Clete, will be playing third base for the Yankees—suffered a mild tear in the hamstring, muscle of his left leg Sunday in the Cardinals' pennant - clinching victory. "Boyer's injury is getting a little better," said Cardinal physician Dr. I. C. Middleman who . is supervising treatments being given by trainer Bob Bowman. It's really not good as of now and it could get worse," said Bowman.. "He'll play but running the bases could be a problem." Cardinal second baseman Julian Javier, a dangerous leftfield-line hugging hitter against left-handed pitching, also is ailing with a bruised hip that may slow him down on the bases.

"It took me almost a full season but I believe I've straightened out what had been bothering me," the 43-year-old Milwaukee Braves' left-hander said after the last game of the National League season. ; "I know I can still pitch in the majors and if the- Braves don't think so, maybe somebody else does," Spahn told United Press International. "In any case, I expect to be pitching again next season." Acting Manager Eddie Mathews called on Spahn to pitch the last inning of Sunday's game against Pittsburgh after Bob Sadowski had shut out the Pirates on two hits for the first eight innings. He allowed a scratch single arid struck out the last two batters to end the game. But that appearance was strictly for sentiment with nothing at stake in the standings, and did little to improve the statistics of Spahn's worst season of his career; 6 wins, 13 defeats and a 5.28 earned run average. He has won 358 major league games, more than any other left-hander history. Just what plans the Braves have for the $80,000-a-year great is uncertain. Club President John McHale said last week he would visit Spahn soon to "talk "things over" and decide on a future course. Spahn said his legs and arm were as good as at any time in the last few years, and that his troubles could be traced directly to loss o£ timing in his pitching motion.
