Elwood, weakened by'the temporary loss of several players, fell to a six touchdown Blue Devil parade which, was also without the services of key offensive halfback Jim Rumbaugh, and dropped from a tie for first third place in the standings as the Satans won 41-7. It was the third win without a conference defeat for Tipton while the Panthers absorbed their only setback and -still remain very much in contention. Peru, which has been scored n by only .two opponents, romped to its fourth shutout of campaign with a 35-0 surprise over Alexandria, that moved them into second place in conference, an early season with Wabash the only blemish on the Tiger record. Twice tied and once defeated Wabash won its first league game with a 39-6 conquest of Hartford City which is still win- in CIC play and has only one conference game remaining. Fifth place Huntington jour- the tie neyed out of the conference for a 23-14 victory over Columbia City. ' : • There's no letup in action this weekend as Tipton travels to Alexandria for a game with that old nemesis while Elwood will return to near full strength for a Homecoming outing against Peru in another battle which could turn the standings topsy turvy depending -on the outcome of the other headliner. Hartford City closes out its conference schedule by entertaining Huntington, hoping to pull together a defense that fell apart for the first time last iw^ek. The Airedale's biggest trouble until then was in denting touchdown territory, with only two six-pointers to their, credit in six games. Appropriately enough, the two leaders divided honors in scoring, Tipton maintaining offensive honors with 165 points for a 27.5 average, while Peru holds the best defensive average against all opponents, limiting its foes to 35 or an. average of just under six-points a game. Danny Crouch again took the lead in a close individual point scoring race by notching his 9th and 10th touchdowns of the sea son against Elwood, while Peru's "Gayle Bomar with one against Alex, stands second on 54 points. Lyle Robinson of Elwood tallied his team's only T-D to hold third place with 48. Terry Sutton of Wabash moved into fourth with three touchdowns against Hartford City for a total of 39 points. Bill Moore of Tipton and Randy Pell of Wabash tied for fifth with 37 points each. Denny Hunt of Peru and Lex Boyd of Tipton are locked for extra point honors, each, with 12, while Elwood's Rich Leavell and Huntington's Pete Thorn are in a tie for third with seven P. A.T.'s apiece.

The city bus driver and a woman passenger were killed, and 21 other persons, including 16 children, were injured. ON THE SIDELINES BY HAM R1GG BUS OVERTURNS HUANCAYO, Peru (UPI)—A bus traveling at high speed overturned near here early Monday, plunged into a ravine more than 200 feet deep and burned, killing 19 persons and injuring 23." ' Well., it's- already started. Members of the 101st Airborn Div. may have thought they had a furious battle against the fanatical Hitlerites in that Battle of the Bulge, but wait'll this Friday night at Alexandria and that's seem a comparative .tea party. Our Alex sportswriting colleague ~ Bob ,-iDickson couldn' wait until he had completed the account of last Friday's game between Alex and Peru, until he tacked onto the end of his story just before the statistics: "Things don't ~get any easier this week as the Tigers must now prepare for a good Tipton ball club. However, there should be blood, in their eyes when they think of Nov. 2,1963.' They Want Revenge Jn case you've forgotten, Nov 2, ,1963 was the date Alex invaded Tipton for a game with coach John Moses' Blue Devils a team which was winding up a 9-1 season convinced it was one of the best teams in Hoosier- land, and determined to prove it to Alex coach and CIC repre sentative on the state coaching panel, Jim Wehsollek. Now Wehsollek and Moses are good friends,, but like most good football players, believe there is no place for friendship on the football field. Particularly not when they are trying. to prove a point. So Moses unleashed the full fury of the Blue Devils on a somewhat "down" Alex eleven that day and -the final score was 63-6. The Satans never did, ap parently, prove their point," for they never did achieve that first nod of recognition in the state football poll, although we can name four boys on that team who could have made any team in the state. A Red Flag Ever since that day, though there have been a lot of round balls, baseballs and spiked shoes flash through the air, the thought of that Nov. 2 game has been the equivalent to Alex of a matador waving a red flag in the face of an irate bull.. Perhaps it's deserved, perhaps not. All the Blue Devils and coach Moses were trying to do vfns convince coach Wehsollek they were deserving of a rating. Had they already been rated, there would not have been the need to prove what they could do and the score might have been a lot different. Alex didn't under stand that, however, and if there is any way the Tigers can gain.revenge for that humiliating, they are going to give it the goll darndest effort this Friday night you've ever seen. Not Bad Club Alex is a much better ball club than its 35-0 score against Peru indicates. With the score 14-0 against them, they had marched the kickoff from deep in their own territory to the Peru 17 yard line when a disputed clipping penalty such as the Devils suffered against Cathedral, set them back 15 yards on a first and 10 situation. That broke their spirit, as it would many a good club, and thereafter it wasn't much of a ball game. But the Tigers didn't have the incentive against Peru that they will this (Friday. Your Support Will Be Appreciated McADOO [MIKE] CL0USER Democratic Candidate for JOINT REPRESENTATIVE Tipton-Howard Counties Election November 3, 1964 ' PAID POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT Are Rated Now On the other hand, where Tipton was fighting for its first recognition on a football state rating last year, they have now achieved that distinction and they know it was the sole result of coach Jim Wehsollek voting for them just before and just after the Cathedral game. The question is will they ease up a. trifle this year," feeling more kindly disposed to Wehsql lek who spends much of his summer on the Tipton, golf course? Or will they be battling to advance their standing in the ratings? Conference leader Dan Crouch and teammates Bill Moore and Jim Rumbaugh are very well up in the CIC scoring race They'll want to get in as much time as possible ... particularly Rumbaugh who, because of a bad knee was limited solely to defensive action against Elwood last week. Real Nice Gesture There is nothing personal in Bob Dickson's remarks in his si>lumn Dixie Quotes, but there is no question but what Bob, not realizing Tipton's sole objective last year, felt that the Satans were guilty „of a gross job of "pouring it on". And there is nothing more he, coach Wehsol­ lek, the Alex fans and most of all the Alex players, would like but the unex -crted feat of pull ing the rug from zzlz- the feet of the high standing Devils. Nevertheless,, Dixie is eminently fair young man . (Continued on Page 6) an US. Seizes Early Lead InOlvmoics By LEO H.

LOUIS (UPI) — The St. Louis Cardinals, transformed from underdogs to favorites by one magic swing of Tim McCarver's bat, returned home today confident they will crush the Yankees . and make St. Louis the first National League team in history to win seven world championships. This was a day off for travel in the World Series. The classic, in which the Cardinals now lead the Yankees by three games to two and need only one more win to wrap up the title, resumes here Wednesday. With the Cards on top, and the sixth and seventh (if necessary) games both scheduled -in the Cards' home ball yard. Oddsmakers who have steadily made the Yankees the, series favorites' ever since it began switched today and named St. Louis the 11-5 pick. Strengthen Record If the oddsmakers are right at last, then St. Louis will strengthen its tradition as the most successful National League club in World Series. At present the Cardinals are the only NL team to win six world championships, one more than the San .Francisco (formerly New York) Giants. "It has to look good from here," admitted Cardinal Manager Johnny Keane as he led his men home by plane immediately after Monday's 5-2 conquest ' of the Yankees in New York. That went into the books today as one of the most dramatic games in series history, contest that first saw Tom Tresh save New York from defeat in the ninth inning by hammering a two-run home run with two out — only to see McCarver top that with his three- run homer in the top half of the 10th to win it for the Car- dinajs. The Cards, having won two straight games in enemy country after trailing 2-1 in the se- series, came home with their spirits higher than ever, convinced by this" comeback as will as their amazing Natioinal Yankees would switch to Whitey Ford, if Ford's damaged heel improved unexpectedly. Although the Cards now are favored to win the series, the Yankees remain slight choices to win the sixth game — by 6-5 odds if Bouton hurls, 13-10 if 'Ford goes. "We can win it out there," insisted Yankee Manager Yogi Berra in New York, with a look in his eye that dared you to suggest he may be whistling past a graveyard. the lead-in men's springboard the Olympic Games today while other Yanks scored impressively in basketball, rowing, swimming and boxing. The U.S. forces, leading all nations with five medals on the first two days;of competi- tio, set up chances for a 1-2-3 sweep of the men's springboard event when Gorman, Larry Andreason of Los Alamitos, Calf., and Ken Sitzberger of River iForest, 111., grabbed the Jead at the end of the seven preliminary dives to top eight qualifiers for the final. Earlier, the eight-oared crew from Philadelphia's Vesper Boat Club and a U.S. four- oared crew without coxswain made up of rowers from the West Coast qualified for the finals • by winning "second chance" heats. U.S. Whips Peru The U.S. basketball team whipped" Peru,- 6045 for its 41st.Olympic triumph and third this year with Jerry Shipp of the Phillips Oilers'leading, the way on 18 points. The- Russians, leading threat to American basketball supremacy, also continued , unbeaten by routing Hungary, 8442. American swimmers bagged an Olympic record when Steve Clark of Santa Clara, Calif., Larry Schulhof of Munce, Ind:,' Mike Austin of Rochester, N.Y. and Gary Allman of San Jose, Calif., won its heat in the men's 400 meter free style relay in 3:38.8. That broke the mark of 40.6 set by Australia in an The series leaders planned to work out at Busch Stadium today, while the Yankees remained at home in New York where they planned to drill in Yankee Stadium. When the series • resumes Wednesday, it will be southpaw Curt Simmons on the mound for the v Cardinals and probably righthander Jim Bouton for the Yankees. They were the third game rivals' in New York and Bouton got a 2-1 victory on Mickey Mantle's ninth - inning homer off relief pitcher Barney Schultz.

Middleweight boxer Tony Gibson of Spokane knocked out Yot Thiancharoen of Thailand at 57 seconds of the second and Charles Brown ' of Cincinnati scored a unanimous decision over John Hope of Australia n the featherweight division. Preliminaries Schduled Most of the third day of competition was devoted to preliminaries with three gold medals decided tonight in lightweight weightlifting, women's 100 meter free style swim and men's 200 meter backstroke. Another 18 gold medals, will be deeded Wednesday, eight of them in free style wrestling. Dan Brand of Oakland, Calif., a middleweight wrestler and a leading favorite for. a medal, won a unanimous decision over Japan's Tatsuo Sasaki but heavyweight wrestler Larry Kristoff of Carbondale, 111. was eliminated. Kristoff drew with 1956 gold medalist'Hamid Kaplan of Tur-, key and was ousted after accumulating six penalty ponts. In ' modern pentathlon, the U.S. team led by David A. Kirkwood of Los Angeles gained second place behind the Russians after the riding, fencing and shooting, events. Russia had'8,475 points and the U.S. 8,142. Gibson, a former Harlem Globetrotter basketball player with a low boiling point, struck out 13 batters in his six-hitter— only two strikeouts short of the single-game mark set by Los Angeles Dodger Lefthander Sandy Koufax in the 1963 series against New York. Ninth Inning Trouble Throwing blazing fast balls and sliders with only occasional change-ups, Gibson fanned Clete Boyer and pitcher Mel Stottlemyre to get out of a second-inning jam and didn't encounter trouble again until Tresh's ninth-inning homer electrified thte crowd of 65,633. Mckey Mantle opened the ninth by reaching first safely on shortstop Dick Groat's error. Gibson struck out Elston Howard and retired Joe Pepitone on a savage liner back to the mound which he knocked down and recovered in time for the play at first base. But then Tresh, the most effective Yankee hitter during this series, hit the first pitch into the right field bleachers to tie the score. Cards Bounce Back The Cardinals, who won the National League pennant in cliffhanger fashion, came right back to win in the 10th. Bill White walked and moved to second when Ken Boyer bunted safely toward second. White was trapped off second by Howard but made third safely for a stolen base. White had to hold third as Groat hit into a force play at second but then' came McCarver to tee off on relief pitcher Pete Mikkelsen's 3 and 2 pitch and drive it well into the lower right field stands for the game- winning blow. •Gibson started the Cardinals' two-run fifth inning rally against Stottlemyre with a one- out single and both he and Curt Flood were safe when second baseman Bobby Richardson fumbled Floods' grounder. Lou Brock singled home one run and the other srored when White hit into a force out with the Yankees narrowly missing the inning-ending double play at first.
