DAILY TRIBUNE • SATURDAY,, OCTOBER 17, 1964 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK {LY DENOUNCE K Devils Get Good Scare From Alex But Win 21 to 6 They may be next to last in the CIC standings, but no one is ever going to convince Tipton that's where they belong after a band of Tigers from Alexandria not only held Tipton scoreless throughout the first half but held a 6-0 lead at that intermission. The Blue Devils finally won, 21-6, and with a big assist from neighboring Elwood which stunned Peru 19 to 7, enlarged their lead to a full game in the race for Central Indiana Conference honors. The duaL outcomes insure that the Satans, with one more conference victory can gain at least a tie for the CIC title but need a victory against both Peru and Wabash to stand all alone at the top and gain the honor of holding the conference banquet here at Tipton. Coach Jim Wehsollek had his Tigers fired: up for a defensive effort second to none the Devils have faced this year, and while breaks played a role in Tipton being held scoreless throughout the first 24 minutes of the game, the Alex determination had a great deal to do with the fact that the vanuted punch of captain Danny Crouch and compan3 T appeared more like the pat of a powder puff throughout the half. A tremendous Homecoming parade'from the heart of Alex to the football field at the southern extremity of the city, preceded the start of the game which saw Alex winning the toss and electing .to" receive. ; Run Nullified . Lex Boyd's' kickoff was returned 28 yards from the Alex 15 to the 43^ but Tipton • j stood firm, Dick Burkhart throwing the carrier for a four yard loss on the first play from scrimmage, and after a two yard gain, .Jim Rumbaugh got through with a helping hand supplied by Dan Crouch to throw the runner for a one- yard loss making' it fourth and 13 to go. Alex punted to Rumbaugh on the Tipton. 30 and the speedy safety ran it back 45 yards to Alex's 25 only to have a clipping penalty on the same play put the ball back to tlie midfield stripe. Rumbaugh got eight yards and Crouch six- for a first down on the Alex 37. Alex braced at this point and held for downs, taking over on its own 29. After a two yard gain through the line, quarterback Steve Teler fired a long pass over the left side of his line with the receiver losing Dan Crouch and carrying a total of 51 yards before he was brought 'down from: behind Rumbaugh on T i p- ton's 14 yard line The Satans staged a strong stand here, taking the ball over on the 10 °yard line when Boyd rushed Telfer into an in­ completed pass. Tipton got another break when, after Alex held for three downs, Crouch punted and Alex fumbled the kick with Tipton recovering on the Allex 41.. Rumbaugh closed out the quarter with a 13 yard gain. 'Fumble & Penalty • After Crouch opened the next period with >a three yard plunge Rumbaugh fumbled and Alex recovered on its own 41. After a punt exchange Billy Moore intercepted a Telfer pass and ran it 56 yards for a touchdown only to have the play nullified with another Tipton player was called for roughing the passer and the call gave Alex a first down on Tipton 's 31 yard line. Tipton recovered the ball on a fumble but a pass by Crouch was intercepted' and returned from ,the Alex 38 all the way to the Tipton one-yard line before the, runner was knocked out of bounds by ' Crouch just short of a touchdown. Husky fullback Jim Halm had no trouble plunging over for the score on his first try and after Alex failed in its extra point try on a grounded pass, the Tigers - caVried a 6 -0. lead into the dressing room'at .halftime. : Quarterback Jim Harmon returned the second half kickoff to the Tipton 43 on a good run with a nice block by Rumbaugh 'and after a three yard .drive by.

(TRIBUNE Photo-Engraving) Tipton Mayor Visits Tipton-Iowa Style On Tuesday this week Tipton I reverse also is true, Rench learned. Mayor Ray Rench vi sited Tipton—Tipton, Iowa, that is. The mayor and his wife noticed a road sign for the Iowa town while motoring through the state on their just-completed vacation trip. They found that the community was located a short distance from their planned route "and detoured for' a brief visit there. •• .How does-Tipton, Iowa com-! pare with Tipton, Indiana? It is a county seat in a farming area, just as our Tipton • is, Rench noted. However, it is quite a bit smaller. Population of the Iowa town is only 2,800, compared with Tipton's 5,800. The business district seemed to be about the same size. However. Rench said the residential area is considerably smaller. He did not notice any industrial development in the .town, he' added. What's new in Tipton, Iowa? The county is presenting a referendum during the general election November 3 for a $595,000 bond issue to build a new court house. Rench visited the Tipton, Iowa, courthouse, which is about 100 years old and talked with Joeal officials. He learned that the bond issue has been presented, and defeated, twice before. Rench also visited city officials. He learned that mayor G. L. Daedlow has traveled to Indiana 'several times to attend football games'at Purdue and Indiana universities. However, he never has visited Tipton. He may do so the next time he journeys as far as Lafayette, he told Rench. While in Tipton, Rench also stopped in to see the local postmaster, who noted that mail for Nature Notes the two cities often is confused, finish, restored American sprint j The Tipton,' Indiana post office supremacy with a fourish. frequently receives mail inten- (Continued from page 6) 'ded for the Iowa town, and the Mayor and Mrs. Rench returned from their • vacation Thursday. Their motor trip took them through Missouri and into Colorado where they visited relatives and toured the Air Force . Academy at • Colorado Springs. They then drove to Grinnell, Iowa. They decided to visit Tipton after leaving Grinnell, as they were headed for Illinois on the last leg of the trip. There also is a Tipton souri, Rench said. He and his wife also saw a sign for that town. However,, the community was located too' far off their route and they were not able to visit there. Rench said he enjyed visiting Tipton's Iowa counterpart. In addition to visiting with local officials, he stopped in at the newspaper office there. The community has two weekly newspapers, produced by. the same publishing company. AS a memento of his visit to Tipton, Rench has two copies of the local newspapers, a sample ballot of the referendum, and an envelope which he mailed to himself from the Iowa town in order to obtain the postmark. He is looking forward to receiving a copy of the Iowa newspaper soon. The publication will carry an article about his visit as well as a photo of Rench and the Tipton mayor taken at a city council meeting.

Charlie and his wife came up from Boone County to the little brown house on the farm to help us celebrate. He attended Cornhill school while I was at Jim.'.own in Prairie. I-went to high school with-, him one year, but when I got down to I.U. he had gone so fast that he was through! He finally took seven years of college, became a department head ,in.-'a large university and now Mj s . I has his name in .the big book 'Who's Who in America. ! Bul I expect if I called him anything but Charlie, he would be offended. When he reached retirement age, they wanted a "farm". There were three requirements (1) The house must be back off the road. (2) There must be a large woods. (3) There must be a creek through'the woods. They finally found a place that met all three requirements and are now living in complete hapiness and in the same manner they lived when they were children at home with their parents. They grow most of their fruit and vegetables, have their own meat killed and processed, have bees to produce their own honey and cows to give them milk. They even have an oldtime cream separator and make their own butter. I think it unusual, and wonderfully Christian, that a man with, several college degrees is GO humble that he makes no pretentions about any thing, not • even his preferred manner of living. Too many people live in pretense, and by pre tense, and this is wrong. A question has been raised as to how .to tell the sex of a praying mantis, and this is a tough one. There are two phases of this large insect and the books say that all males and some females are grayish brown on top the underparts and .feet probably sreen. Mo?.t of the females are wholy green. So a green one is probably a female, and a brown one prciably a male but there is no certainty about this for either sex. II, seems that Paul and his wife ark getting to be as ardent nature fans, as I am. Now they have come up with'the discovery of an English walnut tree growing wild in. Tipton County .and bearing very fine nuts. I have three of these trees in the or chard, but I transplanted them after Raymond had given them to me when they were very small. Paul's tree was unknown to them until a short time ago, and grows in a fence row on another farm than their'-own. They have no idea how the nut that sprouted it and produced it, happened to be deposited at that particular, place,, and neither do I, but there is the evidence And incidently, I discovered a large pecan tree growing in] Tipton County several years ago, I asked the people who lived j there if they knew what kind of tree it was and they said they did not. IFtom this I would presume '.that it had never borne nuts.
