The East Syracuse over UCLA —_ The Orangemen keep looking better and better after an opening loss to Boston College. Army over Penn State — The Cadets snap back after being toppled by Texas.

Miami (Fla.) over California — Golden Bears make the long trip to Florida for nothing. Alabama over North Carolina State — Bam'a breezing.

Also: Georgia over Clemson, Wake Forest over Vanderbilt, Tennessee over Boston College, Auburn over Chattanooga,. Virginia over WMI, William and Mary over Furman and LSU over North Carolina. The Midwest Ohio State over Illinois — -Buckeyes move up in the national rankings despite being six-point underdogs. Minnesota over Northwestern — Could be one of the best games of the day. . . Michigan over Michigan State — Spartans suffer a let-down after their victory over Southern Cal. Iowa over Indiana — Hawk- eyes could be the Big Ten surprise of the year.

Sponsored by Tip Toppers Place Announced Later CLOUDY AND WINDY ST. LOUIS (UPI)—A "rather windy" day is predicted for today's second game of the World Series here. The weather bureau said the sky over Busch Stadium would be partly cloudy to cloudy and the temperature at game time would be about 65. ODDS NOW EVEN ST.-LOUIS (UPI)—The odds- makers are now quoting the World Series as an "even money" ) affair on the strength of the ; Cardinals' opening game victory. The Yankees were 17-10 favorites before Wednesday's first game. For today's second game, the American League champins were hairline 11-10 favorites. Rummage sale. Saturday.

LOUIS (UPI) — Barney Schultz says he's ready to come back today after Wednesday's game-saving three innings stint in relief of Ray Sadecki. "I'm ready to go tomorrow," Schultz said after Wednesday's 9-5 Cardinal victory. But I don't think I'll have to. We'll have more stuff." The pitcher in whom Schultz has so much confidence is right hander Bob Gibson who will oppose Yankee Mel Stottlemyre. Gibson said he's ready and anxious to go. "You can't be worried about them (the Yankees). Of course, they're good but so are some of the teams in the National League." Needed Rest Gibson probably would have started Wednesday but he came in to relieve Curt Simmons in Sunday's pennant clincher over the New York Mets and needed an extra day of rest. Catcher Tim McCarver called Wednesday's victory, "a team effort" but the Cardinals got the lift they needed when Mike Shannon hit a 400 foot home run off the top of the left field scoreboard. Shannon, a $50,000 bonus play er in 1958, tied the score with his blast, sending Ken Boyer home ahead of him. The Cards broke loose for three more runs in the inning routing starter and loser Whitey Ford. Shannon said, "I hit one longer at Pittsburgh and one at Dublin, Ga.,' but this was a bigger thrill." Shannon, a St. Louis product, had been with the club last season but saw little action. Wanted To Play "I was disappointed when they sent me down this season but it was good because I wanted to play. I made up my mind I was going to hit more. "I'm not swinging -any differently but I've got more concentration and more determination than before," Shannon conceded. Centerfielder Curt Flood had two key hits in the late innings Wednesday—both • of them on fly balls Tom Tresh couldn't handle in left field. Flood said he sympathized with Tresh because "the wind and the sun out there 'are tough." MARTIN WINS MATCH VIRGINIA WATER, Eng. (UPI) — Irishman Jimmy Martin won the $12,000 piccadilly 72 hole pro golf tournament Wednesday by carting a two- under- par '268 on the 6,209-yard par 72 east course. The two stroke victory over runner-up Bernard Hunt earned the Canada Cup player the winners* purse of $2,100. KNICKS WIN HARTFORD, Conn.

AUTHORIZED BUICK DEALER IN THIS AREA:. SERVICE MOTOR COMPANY, Inc 123 So. Independence Te?ephpne OS §-|54§ There is a. vast difference between acting as a publicity agent for a genuine attraction, be it in.athletics, the theatre or politics, and acting as a "shill" for some third-rate feature like a flea circus for which no sane person would sheil out a dime, Knowing our propensities to publicize the Blue DevUs, it was with a grain of salt that our sportswriting. colleagues noted our pre-season claim that this could be the "greatest ever" football. team for Tipton. And we weren't basing that claim on pre-season drills for there is no basis on which to judge a team when it is playing itself in scrimmage. We based that estimate on the personnel which we knew was available t<_ the coaching staff, and our confidence in. the coaches. Undoubtedly there were some snickers around the conference typewriters when we started repeating our talk of a year ago about "statewide rating".' The snickers probably turned into guffaws when the Blue Devils bowed in .the season opener to a determined and good, but not great Carmel eleven. What happened in that one we'll never know: The Satans knew they were good and the only thing we can think of is that they held Carmel in such poor esteem that they never did realize until the game was over that games aren't won on paper. Since then, however,, they've come back to earth, and they're starting to make our prediction look good. . It is with >a lot of staisfaction, and also with genuine respect for their opinion we read this week, under the heading of "GOOD' REPRESENTATIVE": With, a couple of breaks that went against them, Tipton's Blue Devils could easily have added prestige to Central Indiana ' Conference football Saturday, night when they fell to fifth ranked Cathedral 13-12. Once when "the Devils needed a first down on the Irish 20, the ball was moved back and the CIC team needed less than a foot for the first down. (That was when JBgl/Moore on a 4th-and 2 situation .'gained 2V4 yards only to have the official move the ball back several feet from where Moore had.downed it). On another occassion the Cathedral quarterback went back to throw, had cocked his arm and did not make a forward motion, when he was hit by two Tipton men and the ball went tumbling. A Tip-' ton man picked it up (Len Tragesser) and ran it into the end zone only to have the official rule that it was an incompleted forward pass. 'This writer was impressed and also surprised at the strength of the Tipton ball club. The Devils no doubt were sky high for this one, but they did a good.job" . . . Bob Dickson, Alexandria Times-Tribune. And again . . . "This guy saw the Devils effort at CYO field last Saturday against fifth rated Cathedral. The Devils were impressive in several phases . . . Crouch is a threat in both the running and passing game.... . The Devils were nervous when they kicked off and Cathedral went the -distance in a few plays . , . After •Moses discussed the situation with a couple of Devils", Cathedral found the outside not so outside and spent the entire last half playing defense . ... they gained just three yards,in the last period . . . Crouch is drawing raves again, Billy Yo-Yb Moore is drawing attention; Rumbaugh has had a few adjectives spent on him of late, and the Devils defense (Watch Tra- Make Septic Tanks Work Like New "ASK yQUk RIAUR fOR TIPTON COUNTY FARM BUREAU gesser) is making its presence felt (ask Cathedral) ... We just might get the job done, but with much, much argument Tipton mauled us 32-6 last year after teasing us with an even- steven halftirrie 6-6 tie." Gene Conard, El wood Call Leader. In Wednesday's Call Leader, Conard also had this io say: "The Central Indiana Conference of late has come to a certain point of respectability in that at least a ,coupIe CIC squads have had their names spelled in various fUPI and AP polls with consistency. This has to be Huntington and Tipton. The Vikings for years were hi a class by themselves and most of the other squads fought it out for second place. Tipton—well, Ole 'Pop Moses has something new going on much to • the concern of other CIC and area squads .. . . it's called- success. Time wuz when Elwood kids, Alex kids,.Peru kids and all the other kids regarded Tipton as a week off—an opportunity to boost their scoring average or sit it out while the reserves took the knocks. Now? Well, let's use the best we got and see how we make out. . • * Scouts have found the community of Tipton good hunting ground in recent years. College' head.hunters have plucked off the likes of Ron Captain, Donnie Lankford, Jim fiiltz, Wally Murray, Dick 'Mcintosh, Tim Renie, Harvey Harmon, Steve VanHorn-and others too numerous to mention for display on various collegiate campuses. Quite a bundle of feathers for the old beret, we must say. Of course many of those same scouts are now peeking through bleacherrbinoculars and what have you at kids like Dan Crouch, Jim Rumbaugh; some Tra_gesser kid ana a couple of tyhers w\th drooling 'dimples and sweaty hands. Crouch is what they, the college scouts, have referred ,to as an ideal prospect for any college. He is husky, quick, intelligent and can kill you in 22 different ways . . . Rumbaugh is a fine trackman and will gladly demonstrate his speed on the gridiron if you as much as ask. Tragesser likes the idea of knocking guys down—with the ballthat is. He did it for a solid 48 minute's at Cathedral last week and a few of Joe Dezelan's backs • were wondering' if it wouldn't be better to line up laying down and start from there. It didn't work either way!" But down Noblesville way from the typewriter of Don Jellison Wednesday afternoon came this thought:' "It's unreasonable for the UPI board of coaches to overlook Carmel in rating Hoosierland's top football teams . .. Publicity is what it takes for a school to be ranked among the leaders. Tipton has pounded hard in recent weeks for a rating ... the pounding in the direction of Alex coach Jim Wehsollek, the.CIC representative'on the UPI.board. Last year Wehsol­ lek turned a deaf ear and was smeared by Tipton by some 60 points in the season finale. Coach Nyers wants his Greyhounds recognized (Carmel defeated Tipton 20-14 in the season opener) and the players want to be included in the ratings. But little can be • done until someone of the board of coaches takes the Greyhounds under his wings . . . sports writer Ham Riggs quoted Moses as saying "If Cathedral is fifth in the state, we're third". To this' Nyers . must 'feel like saying if Tipton is third, Carmel must be second. And we agree." We're not familiar with Noblesville's football' schedule and doh't know if they play Carmel or not.! : but we're looking for,ward to one date on •the Tipton schedule . . . October 21. After that'we^ll see if Don still agrees. Cards Match Yanks in Hits; Lead in Runs ST.

A-30,805 By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (UPI) — The St. Louis Cardinals rolled over the New York Yankees in the first game of. the 1964.World Series in a manner that more, than lived up to the proud tradition of the most successful of all National League teams in classic competition. ' The word was "out-classed." The National League champions out-hit, out-ran, out-fielded and out-pitched the American League standard bearers with a 9-5 victory that, delighted a crowd of 30,805 at Busch Stadium. •There were many Cardinal heroes—Curt Flood, Carl Warwick, ;Mike Shannon and Barney (Pappy) Schultz — as the Redbirds unleashed a 12-hit attack that tagged Yankee ace Whitey Ford with his eighth loss in World Series competition. Flood Was Hero First, of course, was Flood whose rousing triple off the left field bleacher wall climaxed the four-run sixth-inning rally which overcame the early Yankee lead. But to set the stage for Flood, it first was necessary for Shannon to tie the score- with his towering homer and for Warwick to deliver with his pinch-hit single that gave the Cardinals a 5-4 lead. And then, of course, to make the display of power pay off in victory it was necessary for Sckultz to hold off the Yankees in the final three innings—just as he had held off rivals so often during the. hectic days of the National League race. The Cardinals tapped- Ford for single runs in the first and second innings. but Ford seemed enroute to his llth series victory anyway thanks to Tom Tresh, who drove in three of the first four New York runs with a homer and a double. Opens With Single Ken Boyer opened the sixth inning with. a single, however, and after Bill White struck out, trotted home on Shannon's (Continued on page 8) Both Need Stay Atop STARTING TIPTON POS Boyd, Sr., 200 .

Principal Charles Ed wards and athletic director Dick •Barr have begged and borrowed all the bleachers they could get for the visitor's side of the field to accomodate the Panther followers, many of whom are coming here hoping to watch the football team pull the same upset over the j state ranked Blue Devils that their; 'basketball team pulled on Tipton-last winter. As a result, there are not likely to be sufficient seats on the visitors' side to handle the crowd. Tipton followers who want seats are urged to get there early or the Elwood overflow will. takg up much of.the west side bleachers. Elwood suffered, its first setback just a week ago against a Strong and undefeated Madison Heights. eleven, but in a game that was decided by breaks and which could just as easily have gone to Elwood. Twc Great Fullbacks Strongest threat to Tipton is veteran fullback Lyle Robinson, who like Tipton fullback Danny Crouch is his team's scoring leader. Robinson has tallied twice against Noblesville in a 34-12 victory, once against Hartford City in a 20-0 triumph, three times against Alexandria in a 27-13 win and scored the- Panther's only points in the 13-6 loss to Madison Heights. He was scoreless in only one game when Elwood beat arch : rival Anderson 15-7 but his bull-like charges set up both touchdown ' opportunities in that one. Missing from the Panther lineup is senior letterman and half- hack John Burton, who tallied touchdowns against Noblesville and Alex but who suffered a severely sprained ankle at the outset of last 'Friday's reverse. His place will be taken by senior le'terman Rick -Groover,-, a 5"7" halfback who scales 153. The other halfback will be Jeff Marcuson,' a 167-pound junior who stands 5'9" and was a trackman for the Panthers as a sophomore. -Changes at Quarterback A new face in the starting lineup for Elwood is Mike Manis, 6'2" son of the-basketball coach, who will fit his 180-pourid frame into the signal-calling slot. He has been the number one reserve for coach. Larry Shook but his development has been steady and Shook has moved, him up to the starting, role-where he can be counted on to pass and roll out.' • ' i He has a good arm. and Elwood strategy is to keep Tipton" off balance ; mixing passes by Manis with drives by Robinson. Only two of the Elwood starters have hot previously won football letters. They.are Bob Frye, the 5'10" junior right.tackle and; Marcuson, so Shook has plenty of experience in the lineup. Many fans will be comparing Robinson with Crouch for their ground gaining ability but neither coach is holding either player in light esteem. Robinson was not present in the El­ wood lineup a year ago when Tipton went on from a 6-6 halftime tie to a 32-6 victory, and even coach Moses agreed that had Robinson been playing instead of wearing a cast, the outcome might well have been different. Both are mighty good, solid football players but Moses feels that with Harmon, Rumbaugh and -Moore, he has a decided backfield advantage. Good Tipton Line In addition, the Tipton line, showed against Cathedral that it was second to none in defensive play and Moses is counting on the center of .that line to repulse Robinson who todate registered most of his gains through' the middle. With Peru regarded as a slight favorite over Alexandria in another conference game Friday night, the loser of this.Tipton- Elwood battle will likely drop into third place since the Tigers of coach- Bob Larsen haven't lost any games although being tied by Wabash. The winner on the other hand, will remain atop the conference standings. Moved from 19,th to 14th in this week's state ratings, the Blue Devils can retain or move up further in the coaches' poll with a BIG victory, and this coach Moses is hoping for. He knows, however, that no Elwood team, . no matter how weak, has ever been a pushover against Tipton. The long-time rivalry between the two schools in all sports, guarantees an all- out effort by both teams. It shoSild be a contest: worth the money to all who flow into the field. Blue Devils On VFW Calendar A very nice .and useful book- calendar is now being distributed by the V.F.W. which we are certain local businessmen, secretaries, club managers and social and fraternal secretaries will want to own.
