(Continued from page 6) / ' Top College Teams Relying On Defense By FRED McMANE UPr Sports Writer There's one thing that virtually all of the nation's top 10 college football teams have in common, as evidenced by last Saturday 's play — pro-like defenses. Seven of the top 10 teams won their games Saturday and another played to a tie, and of these eight teams only one allowed its opponent more than six points in .what was indeed an amazing-show of defensive football. The finest performances were turned in by top ranked Ohio State and No. 3 ranked Notre Dame, who continued along the unbeaten path with victories over Wisconsin and Stanford respectively. The Buckeyes held Wisconsin to only three first downs in the first half and used their 'old grind-'em out style of offense to wallop the Badgers 28-3. They recovered two Badger fumhles and blocked a punt while completely immobilizing Wisconsin's offense, and the Ohio State offensive machine marched out 291 yards on the ground to score twice in both the first and fourth quarters. Irish Impressive Notre Dame's victory was even more impressive." The Irish, who have had the best defense against rushing in the na­ tion this season, limited Stanford to only one yeard on the ground and to only four first downs in scoring a 28-6 victory. So futile was the Stanford -attack that Ray Handley, the national rushing leader with a 5.7 average entering the game, was limited to only 43 yards in 19 carries. Meanwhile, Notre Dame's John Huarte continued his magnificent passing with a 21 for 37 performance that netted 300 yards. •Fourth-ranked Arkansas held Wichita to only eight first downs while a 17-0 victory. The Razorbacks, who conquered Texas two weekends ago, scored a touchdown in each of the first two periods and added a field goal in the third quarter to maintain their position among the nation's top 10. Nebraska Wins Nebraska's fifth-ranked Corn- huskers, whose defensive line averages 223 pounds per man, Colorado for minus three yards rushing and held the Buffs to only 49 yards total offense in a 21-3 win. The victory was Nebraska's sixth this season in the Cornhusker's drive toward a. second straight Big Eight title. * Texas, ranked No. 6 had a great deal of trouble from Rice, but got two field goals from (Continued on Page 6) John Collet Is Picked to Win X-Country Title Griffith junior John Collet, the favorite for the Indiana high school cross country championship, Saturday paced regional winners into next weekend's state meet with the fastest time of the four second-round champions. Collet won at LaPorte regional by negotiating the Elks Country Club course in 9:39.3 for a course record. At the finish, he led runnerup Mark Gibbens of West Lafayette by about 25 yards. • Brothers Don and Stan Vandrey of Valparaiso were third and fourth, respectively. West Lafayette with 47 points was low among the four team winners. Hammond was second at LaPorte with 74 points and Calumet third with 88. Host Bloomington won its meet with 56 points, followed by Evansville Bosse . with 89 and Brownstown with 122. John Rowe of Evansville Harrison with a time of 10:04 bettered the Bloomington course record by 30 seconds. Dennis Coyle of 'Fayetteville was second and Jeff Rogers of Scottsburg third. Indianapolis Washington with 93 points won at New Castle, with Dave Howell of Daleville the individual champion in 9:56.2. Lonnie Marks of Middletown was second. Baltimore Colts Open NFL Lead By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer It's the offense that wins headlines but the defense that wins games. Take that as gospel from the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Colts, who lead the Eastern and Western divisions of the National Football' League today thanks to their mighty defensive units. The Browns are powered by fearless line - buster Jimmy Brown and the Colts by peerless passer Johnny Unitas, of course, but it was the Cleveland defense that engineered j Sunday's 42-20 rout of the New York Giants just as it was the Baltimore defense that produced the 34-0 romp over the Detroit Lions. The victory gave the Browns a one-game lead over the St. Ben Davis with 109 points and Anderson with 117 also will send complete teams to next Saturday's finals at Indianapolis. Defending state champion Ashley had to settle for second place at Fort Wayne with 107 points, behind Elkhart's 72. Fort Wayne North was third with 108. Don Leedy won in 9:46.2 and Marion's Gary Hall was runner- up. Fred McClish was Ashley's top runner, placing fifth. Louis Cardinals, who were upset by the Dallas Cowboys 31-13 while the Colts now lead in the West with .a 6-1 record compared to the 4-2-1 marks of the Lions and the Los Angeles moved into a second-place tie in the West with their 27-17 upset win over the Green Bay Packers. 'Skins Down Bears The Washington Redskins scored a 27-20 triumph over the Chicago Bears, the Philadelphia Eagles downed the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-10 and the • Minnesota Vikings defeated the San Francisco Forty-Niners 27-22 in the other contests on a seven- game card that drew crowds totaling 333,161. Brown gained 56 yards on 12 carries to increase his career total to 9,986 but the key plays in the Cleveland victory were made by defenders Paul Wiggin, Jim Houston and . Charlie Scales. Wiggins recovered a fumble to score a touchdown, Houston intercepted a pass that ON THE SIDELINES BY HAM RIGG r Bob Hammel, former CIC scribe now writing for Kokomo linked Tipton's Bill Moore with Eastern's fullback Lee Taylor as "the best Big 10 prospects the Kokomo area has turned out in quite awhile . . . Both are big, strong, agile and fast and show a liking for contact. And both are good bets in the classroom." ' Jim Hinga, the Ball State basketball coach who was one of four officials handling the Tipton-Noblesville game, expressed interest in Moore while getting into -his uniform before the game Wednesday and asked wha.t number he wore. Hinga said he was interested in watching the boy because he (Hinga) had played basketball with and was a good friend of Bill's uncle, Jim Ertel, while playing basketball at' Purdue. At halftime we asked Hinga what he thought of-Moore, and he summed up the boy in one of the set-up a second touchdown and j briefest and best c *P sul ? com - ments we ve ever heard on a WHY did the present Congressman vote wheat on American credit to Russia to subsidize Communist countries? economic aid fo communist give-aways, yet votes hasn't he raised his voice in protest over the cover-up of corruption in Washington?

Republican-Congressmen have tried to bring the facts about the Bobby Baker, Billie Sol Estes, Walter Jenkins, etc., scandals fo the American people but have been over-ruled by the Democrat majority in Congress. , Indiana is currently sending one half million dollars every week to Washington to pay the INTEREST on the National Debt. Any salary increase for Congressmen should have waited until they could balance the budget. Your present Congressman's voting record has earned him the congratulations and endorsement of the ultra-liberal A.D.A. for his consistent support of their programs. .

Scales raced 28 yards with a fumble on the ensuing kickoff in rapid fire succession in the fourth period to transform a 14-13 lead into a 35-13 romp. A crowd of 81,050 at Cleveland saw the Giants outgain the Browns on the land and in the air but the pressing Cleveland defense intercepted. three passes and recoverd thre fumbles. The Baltimore defense held the Lions to a mere 53 yards rushing and came up with three interceptions as it prevented Detroit from reaching the Colt 20 until the final period. Unitas threw scoring passes of nine and 19 yards r.nd Lennie Moore scored cn an 11 -yard dash to pace the Colts to their sixth straight victory. Lou Michaels weighed in with a pair of field goals. Don Meredith engineered, the Cowboys' upset of the Cardinals by completing 12 passes for 192 yards. ..Meredith passed for one touchdown and set up a two-yard scoring plunge by Don Perkins with his passing.

The Tipton T-men departed at 8 a.m. Saturday for Detroit where, after an overnight stay, they attended Sunday's NFL game between Detroit Lions and Baltimore Colts.. Coach John Moses and three of the T-Mcn took a different route to Detroit, however, leaving Friday night to take in the Peru-Mac- onaquah high school football game, then going on to East Lansing, Michigan where. Moses and players Dan Crouch, Bill Moore and Dick Burkhart were Saturday gues.ts of Michigan State University when the Spartans played Northwestern in a Big 10 game. The Saprtans are interested in the Tipton youngsters, for football, and M.S.U. baseball coach Danny Litwhiler is alsG interested in Crouch as a catcher. Don't Sell 'erri Short In our Saturday "Sidelines" column we warned what might be in. the offing this Friday when Tipton meets Peru. That item was written Friday afternoon. That night the Bengals Three long runs enabled,the, made a very good prophet out of "us by romping 42-0 over Macon- aquah,- despite committing six fumbles, three of which • were recovered hy the losers. John Hentgen ran for three touchdowns on dashes of 35, 50 and 92 yard, and gained a total of.20G yards in just six carries-. . . 34.3 per carry ... On top of that, he caught one pass i good for 20 yards. Peru's • other halfback, Bill. Shuey scored two touchdowns and Bob Rockenbaugh tallied the other when he intercepted a pass and ran it 52 yards for a touchdown. The "Rock" had another touchdown nullified when he intercept.ed another pass, and raced 47 yards for a -.core only to have one of hi: teammates draw a clipping penalty, behind him. Tough at Home Yes boys, that shapes up as quite a ball game Friday night. Another factor also enters into it. We don't recall ever seeing Tipton beat the Bengals when the game was played at Peru. We don't say it didn't happen, but we don't remember it. Normally, grass is grass, and the best team is going to win no matter where they play if it is called fairly. But for some reason, those Tigers are usually about two touchdowns better on their own field than they are elsewhere. Maybe it's the hometown support, but we've seen them just plain and simply outplay- some pretty good teams on their home gridiron. This just possibly could be the toughest team Tipton has faced. Four Officials We commented earlier on coach and athletic director Jim Rams to overcome a 17-0 lead which the Packers had built up in the second period. First, rookie Les Joscphson ran 53 yards for a touchdown. Then Roman Gabriel and rookie Bucky Pope collaborated on a 53-yard touchdown pass play. And then Bobby Smith raced 94 yards with a partially blocked punt. Rookie Bruce Gossett points with field goals of 37 and,43 yards. Sonny Jurgensen's fourth touchdown pass of the game went to end Preston Carpenter with only a minute to go and snapped a 20-20 tie. Jurgensen, who was booed by the Washington crowd before the game, completed 16 of 31 passes to out-duel the Bears' Bill Wade, who connected on 33 of 57 for three touchdowns. Norm Snead. passed for one touchdown and scored another on a one-yard plunge as the Eagles scored their fourth victory in seven games. Sam Baker kicked field goals of 14 and 47 yards, Jack Concannon ran 15. yards for a touchdown and Irv Cross ' galloped . 94 yards with an interception late in the game to round out the Eagle scoring. Clarence Peaks started for the Steelers with 101 yards rushing. - . Fran Tarkenton's eight-yard run and Carl Eller's 45-yard TD dash with a recovered fumble enabled the Vikings to come from behind with two fourth- period touchdowns. The Vikings also survived a 60-yard "wrong way run" by ' Jim Marshall, who scooped up a fumble and ran into the wrong end zone to give the Forty-Niners a safety in the fourth period. Fred Cox kicked two field goals for the Vikings and Tommy Davis a pair for the Forty-Niners.

Tipton athletic director Dick Barr commented after the No- blesvillej game that after testing it out, he agreed. It did result in a couple of penalties against Tipton, |but it also saved: two pass completions that might have been questioned as "traps"!, because by having four oficials j on the field, they were better Spaced and were right on the spojt when the passes were caught lust inches off the grass. I Grievance We're) not trying to stick our nose into the basketball ticket situation for quite frankly that's none of our business. Policies for ticket distribution arc quite properly set up and supposedly enforced by the high school athletic council which consists not only of the coaches but of non- athlctic department members of the faculty. We've been approached by several teachers, however, who have asked us to present what they feel is a grievance, insofar as jthey have been given to understand. We're passing along their domplaint to the athletic council, only as an intermediary, in the ^thought that perhaps the council has not even heard of the complaint and is unaware that it 'exists. These teachers are not members of the high school faculty but are grade school teachers within the Tipton Community School) system and do consider themselves members of the school!faculty. They have been given | to understand that this year, they are not to be included in | the opportunity to purchase i two season tickets that has been extended to the high school: faculty. They claim that they have been Tipton; "lean good; long-time supporters of basketball—through the years" as well as the that they have played their own role in the development of the pupils now making up thejhigh school student body: they point out too, that in this, the first year of the new school consolidation, it would be excellent community relations to extend the faculty privilage of purchasing two season tickets to all teachers who make up the Tipton Community School system. ! The | teachers have their own organization through which grie- vienccs may be expressed, but it is limited by constitution to four meetings yearly. Unfortunately their last meeting was held 'before'the ticket situation was announced, and their next meeting is not until December when it will be too late. We hope therefore that this medium will bring their plight before the eyes and consideration of the athletic council. Globetrotters Play Tonight The Harlem Globetrotters will be on exhibition tonight, featuring Meadowlark Lemon, in a game starting ai S •p.m. against the Washington Generals. Seven variety acts prior to and between halves of the game will include Peg-Leg Bates and national champions in table tennis, trampoline and tumbling. The contest is being played at Frankfort for the benefit of Frankfort Junior High School by the! Booster Club of that chool ps a fund raising project which provides most of the equipment for the school. Prices are S2.50 on the sideline .seats and $1.50 in the end zone. RE-ELECT OLIVER D.
