WASHINGTON (UPI)—It was the old American custom of rooting for the underdog that caused me to take up the cudgels for okra. Okra is to the vegetable world what the New York Mets are to baseball. It is at the bottom of the standings. There are some who claim it is not fit to eat, just as there are some who claim that what the Mets play isn't baseball. And yet to know okra is to love it. When Tom Buchanan, cofounder of the New Okra Institute' of America, recently invited me to join the great okra crusade, the first thing I did was check around to see why okra was so lowly regarded by so many people. ~* My studies lead me to believe that part of the trouble stems from word association. Okra has been used in verbal con^ texts that are hound to' create unfavorable impressions in the public mind. Sounds Unappettizing For example, one of the major encyclopedias defines okra as "a herbaceous hairy annual plant." This may be technically accurate, but it sounds rather unappetizing. Would you knowingly eat a plant that was both herbaecous and hairy? Of course not. The very thought causes a person's taste buds to run for the bomb shelter. Or take Clemson University, which is one of okra's best friends. Its horticultural department developed a new variety of okra that has done much to improve the breed. Unfortunately, however, they named the plant "Clemson spineless okra." For more people, the word "spineless" has an ' unflattering connotation. It implies a lack of courage or fortitude. Actually, of course, okra ' is one of the most heroic of all vegetables. It has done far more for mankind that mankind generally realizes. Coffee Substitute In Turkey, okra seeds are sometimes used as a substitute for coffee. Elsewhere in Near East, okra leaves and immature pods have long been used in poultices and fomentations. A Marquette University research team recently announced that it had been able to convert okra pods into an inexpensive and plentiful substitute for blood plasma. ^ . . And now, in still another potential contribution to the welfare of the human race, okra is being investigated for possible use in the treatment of ulcers. ' Besides all of this, okra has a high mucilage content, making it the ideal ingredient for holding shrimp gumbo together. In short, okra represents true nobility. The next time you hear people say it is herbaceous, hary and spineless, I urge you to punch them right in the nose. The Almanac Today is Saturday, Oct. 24, the 298th day of 1964 with 68 to follow. . ' The moon is approaching its last quarter. The morning stars are Jupiter, Mars and Venus. • • The evening'stars are Saturn and Jupiter. On this day in history: In 1861, the' first telegram was sent across the United States when California Chief Justice Stephen .Field mes saged to President Lincoln in Washington. In 1901, Mrs. Anna Edson Taylor went over Niagara Falls in a barrel, the first person to survive the stunt. In 1945, Secretary of State James Byrnes announced the charter of the United Nations was in force after the Soviets ratified it. In 1952, General Dwight Eisenhower, campaigning for the presidency,' said if elected he would go to Korea to seek an end to the war. ON THE SIDELINES BY HAM RIG$.

Main OS 5-4483 sporting fans comes from Sharps ville Principal Andrew Fernung who told this writer Wednesday that the opening game of the Spartan basketball season will be played in the Tipton gymnasium. Originally scheduled to meet Windfall on Friday. Nov. 6 in the Sharpsville gym, Fernung said he has rescheduled the game for Saturday night, Nov. 7, so as not to conflict with Friday night, Nov. 6 against Wabash. Last year the traditional rivalry between the two .county schools was scheduled and played in the Windfall gym and hundreds of fans were turned away from the door because of inadequate seating. Thanks Edwards Fernung said he had received excellent cooperation from acting Supt, Charles Edwards the Tipton principal, and while it would cost Sharpsville some money to rent the gym for the Windfall game, he felt it was the only fair thing he could do in order to give all the fans of the two schools the opportunity to get seats. With- Tipton scheduled t o meet Sharpsville in the same gym Nov. 25 in the Blue Devils'- second game of the season, Fernung thought that there might be a lot of Tipton fans interested in seeing the game too, which would swell the crowd and .help additionally to defray costs of the gym's rental. Playing here too, would enable the Spartans to familiarize themselves with the floor and lighting before meeting the Blue Devils. • County Roundup We will start next week a roundup of the area schools, listing their, season schedules, the team rosters with height and weight, and expectations of the coaches and a photo of J each of the teams. j In the Stands We were pleasantly surprised Wednesday night when Kent Dove, 'Peru's actiive young sports editor dropped down on the field to say he was. among a group of half a dozen fans and scouts who came down from the Circus City to get an idea of what his own Tigers will be " facing next Friday night. Peru was idle Wednesday in preparation for a game last night against Maconaquah. Dove said coach Bob Larson expected more or less of a breeze for his Tigers in that one and would probably go with his reserves most of the game How to see to it thai tomorrow takes care of itself Just ask your paymaster to give you a card like the one shown above, and fill it out.

The Tigers are still within mathematical contention in the CIC race but know they have to win this one. or, for this year, they are dead pigeons. Absent at El wood Dove told us to discount Elwood's 19-7 win over Peru..He said there was no question but what the Panthers played one whale of a ballgame against his Tigers but that Peru had eight men not able to play that game. Biggest Foe Tipton Coach John Moses admits he's worried over this one and was in the stands at Peru last night, along with Dan Crouch, Bill Moore and Dick Burkhart, to watch that Tiger ^uting. Peru is by far the biggest club the Blue Devils will face all season, and for the first time, the Tipton, line of which he is so proud will find its self outweighed. . 10 pounds per man. I For just an idea of comparison, Tipton's 205 pound Ken Mahaney will find himself facing a 262 pounder with the appropriate name "Tank" Corik- lin. That boy played Tipton lalst year wieghing 300 pounds, but he showed the desire to play football so coach Larson convinced him that if he'd take off some of that weight he'd be a much better ball player. Today, 38 pounds lighter, he's picked, up a lot of speed and is catching the eye of a lot of college scouts. . . j Tipton's Dick Burkhart, k 1 215 on the other side of the line will find himself facing a similar wall of granite in McKee who tips the scales at 242., I Tipton's great little guard Lennie Tragesser, at 170, will be spotting the man he faces [26 pounds at 196 while even Ja'ck London at center, weighing ^.75 for Tipton, will be giving away five pounds to his opponent. Tough Backs Tipton will have a little edge in thebackfield in the matter of weights, but that will not be too decided with Bob "T h e Rock" "Rockenbaugh weighing 196 at fullback, and he comes by that name honestly. The CIC is exceptionally strong in fullbacks this year with Lyle Robinson of Elwood, Jim Hahn of Alex, Rockenbaugh of Peru, Jerry Franks of Huntington who also'runs at halfback, and our own Danny Crouch, but all opponents describe "The Rock" as real tough. He's the pile- driving type who grinds out his yardage midway in the line. All Stater The Tigers are sparked by a boy we personally voted for all- state honors this season-Gayle Bomar. A rugged boy at 180 pounds, he.was all state quarterback in Kentucky last season as a junior, and he's a threat from the opening whistle. Going into last night's game he had not onb' scored nine touchdowns himself, but passed for as many more. He can run in side or out as weil as pass the ball. Paired with that duo are the two Tiger halfbacks. Bill Shuey and John Hentgen. Another danger is the talented toe of Dann3 - Hunt, who has kicked 13 extra points in 18 tries Tipton's job there is to see that he doesn't get a chance to apply that toe.- Moses Has Job One of the biggest jobs facing Moses right now is keeping his kids "up" for two more games, after getting them into the right mood for Noblesville. He and they both know the danger of holding an opponent too lightly after that opening loss to Carmel. Against Alexan-; dria they were fortunate, after trailing 6-0 to that fired up squad at the half, in that it was sheer brute power that wore down the Tigers of Alex in the final half. Even though they realize the importance. of these two remaining games, it is hard to keep keyed up mentally every week. And they're going to need to be keyed up. As Dove told us Wednesday night, "You guys better not discount Wabash either. We had 'em down 21-0 when suddenly they caught fire and we just couldn't stop them". That game wound up in a 21-21 tie that has Peru now hanging on the ropes instead of in"a sec-] ond place tie with Elwood. Real Big Game But back to Peru, the Tigers j have several advantages work-! ing for them now. They wera j beginning to talk of state rat-' ings until that Elwood loss. Now they've got that off their mind. And unlike Tipon, they- ve got nothing beyond the Blue Devils to worry about. Tfteir last two games of the season are against non-conference foes so it ought to easy . for -coach Bob Larson to get his boys in] high mental state for this one that they know will "make 'em or break, 'cm". For Tipton, while it's a big (Continued on Page 4)
