NUMBER 24 TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1944 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK BANKER Bengals Outplay Tipton 26-14 To Knot Conference Outplaying the Blue Devils in every department of the game, Peru's Tigers last night threw the Central Indiana Conference race into a deadlock as coach Bob Larson's boys handed the Tipton club its first conference loss 26-14. Gayle Boraar, by far the best quarterback Tipton has faced this season, used perfect timing to keep the Satans constantly off balance, and the big Peru line turned back the majority of the Blue Devil efforts to penetrate it. Tipton had no alibis, for the game was young when, after turning back one Peru drive, speedy Jim Rumbaugh raced 74 yards on Tipton's third play with the ball and Lex Boyd .kicked the extra point to give the Satans a 7-0 lead. From then until the final minutes of the last quarter, Peru rPimed up 8 'itl down tne field almost at will, scoring in every quarter to pile up a 26-7 lead. As usual, Tipton lost the toss and Peru elected to - receive. The Tigers returned the kickoff from their own 14 to the 24, and after gains of 2 and 4 yards, Bomar hit Hentgen with a pass that netted 36 yards and put the ball in Tiptcn territory on the 44 yard line. The Tigers picked up two more first downs going to the 18. After gains of 4 yards by Bill Shuey and one 'by Bob Rockenbaugh, a pass failed and the Bengals elected to go for a field goal which was far wide of its target and Tipton took over on its own 20 yard line. Bill Moore, who was given- the bail only one time in the entire first half, picked. up six yards on Tipton's first play from scrimmage. Danny Croucj] was stopped at the line of scrim-; mage, but on the next play, on a third and four situation, Jim Rumbaugh broke loose through the right side of his line and seconds later was 74 yards down- field in touchdown territory Lex Boyd's placement was perfect and Tipton was in front 7-0. 'The clock showed 5:56 remaining in the first quarter at that point. After Peru took the kick from the "22 to the 35, Tipton braced for the plays, but on a third and nine to go situation, ' Bomar tossed another' pass, good .for 23 yards and Peru was on the Tipton 41. Another pass moved it to the Tipton 33, Rockenbaugh drove for 10 through the middle and a first down on the 23. Rockenibaugh and Shuey picked up three and six respective, and on a rollout that caught everyone nap ping, Bomar faked a handoff to season last week with a 6-0 rec- Rockenbaugh and .skirted the 1 ord wnile Washington and Roos- left end of Tipton's line for I4, evelt are 5-° in league play. •Previously unbeaten and un- taking the ball on their own 25 yard line and marched 75 yards for the game's final score. Crouch made gains of 4, 10 and 28, Moore picked up 1, 12 and 8, Rumbaugh 7 on a 4th and 5 situation and Boyd took a pass for 10 on that drive. With the ball only inches from the goal line, Harmon plunged over on a keeper. Boyd's kick was again good and the final score was 2S-14. 'Elwood, by downing Wabash 20-7 while Tipton was losing, moved into a first place tie with the Satans while Peru clung crown in case the Devils and Elwood both' lose their final games next IFriday. pa VOTE Pa Kokomo NCC Crown By BOB GATELY United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)— With Indiana's high school football season rapidly drawing to a close, two more conference championships were settled 'Friday night but some will go down to the wire. • Kokomo, ranked second behind South Bend St. Joseph's by the UPI board of -coaches, downed New Castle, 44-14, for its ninth victory of ithe season and the North Central Conference championship. And New Haven, led by Dave Shaw's three touchdowns, dumped Fort Wayne Elmhurst, 33-7, to wrap up .the Northeast Indiana Conference -crown, • But there was a real scramble for the title in the Northern Conference and things • were about as tight in the Northwest Conference.

The token of things to come came on the following kickoff when Harmon made a .nice 17- yard return only to loose the ball while tackled and Peru took over. The^ Tipton line braced, however and held for ;downs.' The Satans were unable to gain and Crouch punted to the Tigers who took over on their own 31 Twelve plays later the score was 13-7 with Rockenbaugh driving over from the one for the score.

Trying to get off the pass, Harmon tossed it behind him and Peru fell on it for a recovery on the Tipton 20 yard line. It took Peru just three plays to go over and Hunt's kick made it 20-7 with, the second half only 3:09 old.

Post Officials Fight Ouster PHILADELPHIA (UPI)—Two ousted executives of Curtis Publishing Co. today mapped plans for "aggressive action" against their dismissal by the board of directors. Clay Blair Jr. and Marvin Kantor, leaders in a_ campaign against the policies of Matthew J.. Culligan, were given their dismissal notices Friday after a storm closed-door meeting. The vote for their dismissal "in the best interests of the company" was 8-3> Blair, 39-years-old" $75,000 a | year' editor of the Saturday Evening Post and editor-in-chief of:all .Curtis publications, .and Kantor, 37-year-old $80,000 a- year • chief administrative. officer, claimed the board action was totally unwarranted and legally indefensible. They also were senior vice presidents. Although fired, Blair and Kantor retained their posts as board members and refused to resign. Only the stockholders may fire a board member, and the next scheduled stockholders meeting is not until April. Blair and Kantor called a news conference in the. lobby of the publishing firm's building .after the" board action and told reporters "we fully intend to be at the next regular monthly meeting of the board next Tuesday." They said the combined equity in their contracts .with Curtis amounted to "about a half-million dollars." .- • Their attorney Bernard Buchwald was asked what was meant by the "aggressive action" mentioned in the statement' "No' decision has been made yet. They (Blair and Kantor) have contract rights. We intend to protect those rights. Nothing has been settled," Buchwald said. The protest over Culligan's policies was contained in a letter to M. Albert Linton, chairman of the executive committee. Blair said it was drawn up at a "duly organized' joint session of the long-standing editorial board and publishers board of Curtis Publishing Co." at a meeting Sept. Greenwich, Conn. "All 15 signatories of the letter were duly constituted members of either the editoral or publishers board," Blair said. '.'They included all editors and. all publishers of Curtis magazines." Culligan was accused of being preoccupied with Curtis' recent venture in a mining business at Timmins, Ontario, near the big mineral strike made early this year by Texas Gulf Sulphur Co. Blair and Kantor also said a 200-word statement issued by the board during the special meeting was made without their knowledge, or consent and had been handed to reporters during a five minute break.

After federal, authorities waived jurisdiction, Davenport was returned- to, Valentine this morning and placed in the basement cell of the Cherry County District Courthouse. The jail cell was prepared with an inner-spring, mattress bed, complete with sheets and quilts. Mrs. George Walker, Cherry County sheriff's wife, said "I'm going to see to it that he gets fed real well." Other residents in the community remained in disbelief and shock at the turn of events.

Many residents insisted that if Davenport took the money, he did it for the good of the community. • *• • "He always stood in back of everything in the community," another said. "The family was well thought of by all." Davenport's wife was equally active in civic affairs. She was a director of Valentine's popular "Queen and King of Hearts" celebration held each Valentine's Day. Business in this small town of 2,800 has come to a standstill.
