Boyd, Tipton . Leavell, Elwood Lehner, Wabash Levert, Hartford City Peru's Tigers., sparked on offense by all-state quarterback candidate Gayle Bomar, and a great defensive line, handed Tipton its first conference setback of '.the season last Friday and set the stage for any of three teams to emerge the CIC winner in final games of the season this weekend. A determined Elwood eleven moved into a tie for first place by downing Wabash 20-7 while, Tipton was falling before Peru 26-14. The Blue Devils and Panthers are now knotted for the lead with identical records of 4-1 in league warfare and Peru, its CIC schedule completed, waits in the wings in position to take over the leadership should both Tipton and Elwood lose conference outings this week-end. Peru also has lost only one game but has an, early season tie on its record against Wabash. The schedule is against Peru, however, with both Tipton and Elwood closing out the season on familiar home soil, Tipton hosting Wabash and Elwood entertaining Huntington. While the conference leaders battle to insure no worse than a tie for the title, Peru has the opportunity to further enhance the CIC's reputation when the Bengals are at home against 10th rated and undefeated Warsaw, which resigned from the conference this year. The other two conference clubs have finished their schedule for this year, Alexandria having wound, up with a 20-7 loss to Huntington that marked the fourth win in a fi>w for the Vikes after starting the season with three losses, while Hartford City closed out in a burst of glory in a 48-6 rout of Portland as Jack Edgemon broke into the ranks of conference scoring leaders with his second consecutive three touchdown night, Mike Levert kicked 5 of 6 conversion tries to finish among the leaders in that department. Tipton, which leads the conference scoring, has three boys among- the individual leaders with six or more touchdowns, although Dan'Crouch, seeking the lead for the second year in a row, had his first place margin cut to one touchdown as Elwood Lyle Robinson added his 10th and 11th of the season against Wabash while Crouch was blanked toy Peru. Two others remained in close contention, Terry Sutton of Wabash has 63 points and Gayle Bomar of Peru now has 60. The race is even closer for the PAT leadership with Peru's Dennis Hunt 'maintaining a one- point margin over Tipton's Lex Boyd, 21-20 as each made good on two placements in their match last week. FORD FACES OPERATION NEW YORK (UPI) — New York Yankee southpaw ace Whitey Ford, 17-game winner in the American League in 1964 and a one-game loser in the World Series, will travel to Houston, Tex., to have his ailing left arm operated on.

RAISES TICKET PRICE CHICAGO (UPI) —The Chicago White Sox announced a price increase on the sale of tickets for the 1965 season. The increase, described as "modest," ranges -from 15 cents. to 65 FIRST TV STATION ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia UPI — Ethiopia's first national television station was opened Monday night' by Emperor Haile Selassie. (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By MILTON RICHMAN . UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI)— This is a story that should have been told during the World Series or else kept quiet at least until Christmas. It is being told now because any time really is the right time to disclose an unselfish deed and because the man behind that deed, former, major leaguer Vic Wertz, would never divulge it even if he lived to be 100. Most people remember the 39-year-old ex- outfielder- first baseman as a left-handed, long- ball hitter who spent 20 seasons in the American League with the - Detroit Tigers, St. Louis Browns, Baltiipore Orioles, Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox and Minnesota TwinsT Victim Of Catch They may also recall he was the victim of one 'of Willie Mays' most fantastic catches during the 1954 World Series and that he suddenly was stricken with polio a year later. As a ballplayer, Wertz was always known as a guy with a heart as soft as marshmallow He hasn't changed a lick even though he's a businessman^ now with his. own beer and wine distributorship in Mt. Clemens, Mich. Wertz went into heavy debt 10 years ago when, while still playing ball, he started the venture with three modest delivery trucks, a franchise and a barrelful of hope. He worked tirelessly building the business to where he now has 16 trucks and employs 25 ,men. Sales Idea Vic suddenly hit on an idea to stimulate sales last summer. He would conduct a contest among his drivers. Those who showed the biggest percentage of increase in sales over the year would be his personal guests on an all-expenses paid round-trip to the World Series and the World's Fair. Originally, Wertz planned to take about a dozen of his drivers, but as the summer moved along and the • competition among them because so keen, j terback club, he began to feel all of th'em deserved, to win. So the soft-hearted one-time slugger finally invited all those who wanted to go. Moreover, he asked them to bring their wives along — as his personal guests. '.. -• Bodge at a new lower price.

' Statistics released today show that West picked up 95 points in three games through'Sunday night for a total of. 217 points and a 31.0 point per game average. His closest competitor in terms of total points was Gus Johnson of the Baltimore Bullets, who had 198 points in nine games for a 22.0 average. The Cincinnati Royals' great guard, Oscar Robertson, was second to West in point-per- game average with 25.3 in seven games. Robertson also led in assists for the second consecutive week with an average of 9.4 per game. The San Francisco Warriors' Guy Rodgers was | second in the assist department with a 7.8 average. Bill Russell of the Boston Celtics took over the rebound leadership from Nate Thurmond of Irish Elated At Top Spot SOUTH BEND, Ind. (UPI) Notre Dame was ranked No. among the nation's college football teams today for the. first time in 10 years, and students, players and coaches accepted the fact as a just honor. "We have worked hard to put Notre Dame where she belongs, and we intend to keep her there," Capt. Jim Carroll said. "I feel the rating is deserved." Istate uarterback John Huarte said "it is about time Notre Dame has given all its followers what they deserve. We'll have to work hard to stay No. 1, but working when you're winning isn't hard." "It's about time we're No. 1," defensive back Tony Carey said, "and. we should stay there. "The tetam is really glad and honored to be rated No. 1," end Jack Snow said. "That's where Notre Dame deserves to be, and we're going to stay."' Coach Ara .Parseghian, in his first season at Notre Dame after eight years at Northwestern, said he, his staff and the players, were "delighted." "It's what you're striving for," he said, "and it's a great accomplishment. "It puts more pressure on you, but I'd rather be there than on the other end of the stick." Notre Dame last was ranked No. 1 on Sept 28, 1954,' after the Irish opened the season with a victory over Texas in "the first Notre Dame game under Terry Brennan,. who had replaced Frank Leahy. Purdue defeated Notre Dame the next week to knock them from, the top rung. Parseghian's. Northwestern team was No. 1 for two weeks in 1962. "I've been on both ends of this," he told a Chicago quarterback meeting Monday. "So fear what's around the corner. It's a great start, and I'm happy about it." Parseghian pointed put it was his ninth appearance at the quar- eight' of them at Northwestern, and said "I've come down here when we lost them all, and when we've won five or six in a row. ''I had no anticipation we'd be in this great position," he added. "We have one good offensive unit and one good defensive unit. If you can put your finger on any one thing, platboning has contributed to our success, because we've been able to play boys who could help us. Had we had to go both ways, we- wouldn't be nsarly as efficient." Parseghian's mild acceptance of the No'. 1 rating was duplicated on campus Typical of the student reaction was the comment from one freshman. "We deserve it," he said. "Now let's look ahead to Pittsburgh and don't mess up." Grid Poll ON THE SIDELINES BY HAM RIGG Peru's Tigers are justifiably elated with their victory last IFriday against Tipton. Com menting after the game, coach Bob Larson happily exclaimed "\ye stopped the best offense in the league ... we stopped the best backs in the league." And Kent Dove, Peru sports editor in reviewing the game in his "Kent's Comment" column Monday said "It hurt physically to battle a fine team like Tipton for four quarters.

Co-op Battery SALE Thru month of Nov. FREE Bqttery charger with purchase of car, truck or tractor battery during this sale at your FARM BUREAU COOP Braves File Counter Suit CHICAGO (UPI) — The Milwaukee Braves contend that Milwaukee County broke the ball club's lease on County Stadium, clearing the way for the team to move to Atlanta, Ga., for the 1965 season. The Braves made the charge in an answer filed in federal court in Milwaukee Monday to a suit for an injunction filed by the county to prevent transfer of the franchise. The county contends that the lease requires the Braves to play all home games in Milwaukee dur­ ing'the 1965 season. The Braves charged Milwaukee County broke the lease, by failing to protect the team against ticket speculators on stadium grounds, by failing to 'make up" to the Braves for failures of season ticket sales and radio and TV income, and by making public statements implying that the Braves' management' was deliberately trying to have the team hot win games. . The club said that in an effort to offset the "disparagement" by county officials, it sold 119,000 tickets at reduced rates. It added that while it believes the lease was broken by t h e county, if the court held otherwise, the club would be able to pay the $175,000 which Milwaukee County estimated it would receive in rental in 1965. ' A professional team cannot and should not be required to play in the face of public antipathy and hostility," the answers said. "A court of equity will not enforce professional servitude under such conditions." I would hesitate to:' say they were over-rated but would rather believe we are under-rat ed.'' Earlier in the season, in response to "rating" claims from various sources, we commented "Let the teams settle it on the football field." That is just exactly what Peru did, and all. we can say is more power tp 'em. Off the game they played against us. last Friday, we hope that when the, UPI poll comes in tonight for publication in Wednesday^ newspapers, fke Bengals wrill be right up in there. Strong Finishes Tipton has been essentially a second half ball club. Excellently conditioned, they've scored one or two first half touchdowns, and then, as their power took its toll on the opposition they rolled to their high scores in the second half. Against Peru it was just the opposite. We had been led to believe that the Tigers were big but slow. They'^wiere big, alright . . . the biggest club Tipton has faced, all season, but if they were 'slow, then they must have sent in a lot of ringers against the Satans. Moses commented after the game that the Tigers just wore the Tipton kids down.-It took a mighty determined bunch of Blue Devils to fight back and grind out that last 75 yards that qulmirated in Harmon going over for the final score of the game, after taking the battering they did all through the game from that big, strong Peru line. It makes us wonder what Tipton will be facing this Friday when we recall the fact that Wabash faced that line all night and battled back in the final quarter for a 21-21 tie. CASPER PLAYOFF SAN JOSE, Calif. (UPI)—Bill Casper, one of golf's capitalists, and Pete Brown and Jerry Steelsmith, a pair of strugglers tangle in a three-way play-off for' the championship of the Almaden Open golf tournament today. To the victor will go a tidy little jackpot of $3,300. The sec ond and third-place finishers will each get $1,800. Casper already has won $87,- 353.08'in official PGA money this year — so he doesn't exactly heed the money. Casper, as usual, furnished most o£ the drama Monday. Three strokes off the pace with three holes to go, big Bill came roaring down the home stretch with three birdies on 16th, 17th and 18th with putts of seven- six and 25 feet. Noted as a fast finisher, Casper has shot 69, 64, 67, 65 and 68 in the final round of the last five tournaments he has played Brown, possibly the strongest man on the tour these days, blew a chance to capture the title twice. The first time came on the 14th hole where he took a double-bogey six. And the final . chance was on the ISth hole, where he had a chance to pick, up all the marbles by sinking a six-foot putt. But he missed. On the good side, Pete's big play was an eagle On the par-five ninth hole. Steelsmith,' leader through the first iv/d rounds, shot a solid 70 Monday .with three birdies and one bogey.

(Any fisherman worth his line would have instantly recognized the potential of a floating platform as'a fish-getting device.) Whatever its origin, drifting is an accepted way of catching, fish that goes back a long time. And, claim the fishing fans at Mercury outboards, it's just as good it was "way back when." Of all fishing .techniques, drifting is the easiest. It consists simply o f dropping a. tempting m orscl overboard, lowering it to the bottom anil letting the wind dk-ute ' your speed and direction. .Though driftin' is obviously-! that lazy man's'way to lunker.-, it also happens to be one of th« most effective. The lure covers a lot of territory at an extremely slow pa:e and at a depth other, methods may skip. Drifting finds greater favor aiming bait anglers than users of artificials because the former have developed greater patience while waiting for a strike. But it should not be overlooked, .even by the most avid plug taster, particularly as a fish- finding • tactic used in conjunction with trolling. According to the. Mercury folks, a lure can be trolled upwind past a likely looking territory. When a good stretch of water lies downwind, the outboard is shut off and. the boat allowed to drift naturally. Even though the ' drift. ffiay cover the same strip as the trolling pass just completed, the different type of presentation.! may: prove just the ticket on that pariciilar tiny: Drif tin's been around a while. And it's here to stay; It belongs In every fisherman!s "bag of : tricks" .. just use it more often. , RETAIL MERCHANTS MEETING 1 P.M. Wed. Nbv. 4 Farmer's Loan & 5 Trust Sodal feoonv ;
