PAGE 4 TH£ TlfTQH DAILY TRIBUNE MefldW/ NOT . 9,19$4 tolfs, Browns Pacing League By 'FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer It's tini.e for the other National Football League teams to admit they're licked when Johnny Unitas 'stars as a runner for the Baltimore Colts and Jimmy Brown throws a touchdown pass for the Cleveland Browns. Unitas, who didn't' score a touchdown- during the entire . 1963 season, ran 11 yards for a key fourth-period touchdown Sunday as the Colts downed the Chicago Bears, 40-24, for a club record eighth straight victory. 'Brown, who hadn't completed a pass since-thet 1962 season hit Gary Collins with a 13-yard touchdown pass to help the Browns to a 34-24 victory over the Washington Redskins. As a result of the triumphs, the Colts lead the Western Divi, ; sion by 2Vi games and the Browns hold a -two-game lead in the Eastern Division. The peerless passer and the intrepid runner also starred in their specialties — Unitas completing 16 of 32 passes for 241 yards and Brown gaining 121 yards on 18 carries. Lenny Moore co-starred with Unitas, scoring a touchdown in a record 12th consecutive game, and Frank Ryan shared laurels with Brown via a 62-yard scoring play with Paul Warfield. Cards Keep Pace The second-place St. Louis Cardinals kept pace with the Browns in the East by defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers, 34-30, but the' 'Detroit Lions' Western Division hopes suffered a severe setback in a 30-7 loss to the Green Bay Packers. The defeat dropped the Lions into a second-place tie with the Los Angeles" Rams, who beat the Philadelphia Eagles, 20-10. The Minnesota Vikings defeated the San Francisco Forty- Niners, 24-7, and the Dallas Cowboys topped the New York Giants, 31-21, in other games. The seven-game crowd total was 352,281 with 47,891 at Chicago, 76,385 at Cleveland, 28,245 at St Louis, 53,994 at Los Angeles 42,327 at Green Bay 40, 408 at Minnesota and 63,031 at New York. Moore's' two-yard touchdown plunge and three of four field goals by Lou Michaels enabled the. Colts to build a 16-3 lead at halftime. Rudy Bukich threw touchdown passes of four, nine and 32 yards for the Bears in the second half but the Colts countered with three touchdowns of their own including Unitas' 11-yard payoff run after he was trapped trying to pass. -The Colts ran up 479 yards rushing' and passing against a Bear team eager to avenge an early-season 52-0 shellacking by Baltimore. Brown Scores Brown plunged two yards for a touchdown in addition to his scoring pass, Ernie Green ran 21 yards lor a .touchdown and Lou Groza' kicked two field goals for the Browns, who led, 27-10, after three periods. Sonny Jurgensen starred for the Redskins with two 14-yard touchdown passes to Bobby Mitchell and a 10-yard scoring aerial to Charlie Taylor. Charlie Johnson's passes gained 237 yards and produced two touchdowns for the Cardinals but the Steelers threatened to pull out the ganie when they moved to the St. Louis 24 with 39 seconds left. Pat Fischer's interception saved the victory for St. Louis. Bill Nelsen threw two touchdown passes for the "Steelers. (Continued on page 6) No Favoritism On B-B Tickets .Principal Charles Edwards today asked the Tribune to inform ell readers that there is no reason for calling his home or the high school and superintendent's office asking for "priority" in the sale of season basketball tickets. There will be no favoritism and no departure from the sale plan agreed upon by the .athletic council and announced last week in the Trib-- •une. The sale to "the general public will be held Friday, (the "lucky" 13th) with the main door of the high school opening at 6 p.m. and purchasers being admitted to the gym through the south door. The tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Those unable to be there Friday will have an opportunity to buy tickets still unsold the; following Monday. All-seats .are reserved at $10 for adults and S4.00 for children, re- .gardless of location .with a limit of $40 in tickets per person (4 adult tickets or. thai equivalent in combinations of adult and children). . Boston Celtics Still Lead NBA The Boston Celtics and "Wilt- less" Wilt Chamberlain : are maintaining their reputations as two of the toughest opponents in ; .the National Basketball Association. The perennial world champion Celts beat back a hectic Cincinnati rally in the final period Sunday night to edge the Royals, 106-103, and the "very tired" Chamberlain' scored 41" points to spark the San Francisco Warriors to a 130-121 win over the New York Knicks. Boston held a 26-point lead going into the final quarter and appeared to be breezing to its 10th victory without defeat. But the Ros'als battled back to within two points with 11 seconds remaining and forced the Celtics to sweat a little. Jerry Lucas led the scoring with 37 points for the Royals, who are flaying without their No. 1 scorer, Oscar Robertson. Sam Jones was top for the Celts with 26. Chamberlain, who is still playing his way back into shape after being sidelined by a stomach ailment, got a helping hand in the scoring department from Al 'Attles, with 32 points.-But Wilt had a battle for high scoring honors with Willis Reed of the Knicks, who hit 38.

C-32 most balanced competition in the 14-year history of the Indiana Collegiate Conference today resulted in an unprecedented five-way tie for the football cfown. Top-rated Notre Dame, meanwhile, had to battle tooth and toenail to preserve its perfect record with a 17-15 win at Pittsburgh Saturday for its seventh in a row and Purdue's Rose Bowl hopes received a jolt at Michigan State, 21-7. Indiana, heade'd.for its fourth consecutive losing season, lost a brawling int'ersectional scrap at Oregon State, 24-14. iFive clubs ended their seasons last weekend and all except the "Big Three" and Evansville call it quits this weekend. The features are Michigan State at Notre Dame and Purdue at Minnesota. Purdue must beat the Gophers to keep its Big Ten title hopes live and Indiana plays its final home game against Oregon. Monon Bell Finale . . Also, Saturday DePauw is at Wabash for their traditional Monon Bell finalej Rose Poly at Hanover, Indiana Central at Manchester, Franklin at Kalamazoo, Evansville at Bradley, Taylor at Kentucky State, Wheaton at Valparaiso and Alma' at Anderson. Defending champ Butler, which owned the ICC title outright the last six years; - Ball State, Evansville, Indiana State and Valpo wound up sharing :the crown with 4-2 records. Butler bombed Evansville, 48-21, thus wrecking the Aces' chances for the undisputed title; Indiana State dumped hapless St. Joseph's 35-8, and Valpo scored twice in the final period to beat 'DePauw, 21-14. Ball State, which previously «ided ICC warfare, lost to Akron, Ohio, 25-15. Sophomore Joe Azzaro's first field goal, a 27-yarder, as the first half ended, .was. Notre Dame's victory margin at Pitt. • Five Records Set Five school records were set, pass play from John Huarte to Nick Eddy, and Jack Snow grabbed four more passes to give him 43 for the season. A blocked punt and the loss of pass-catching end Bob Hadrick with a badly sprained ankle led to Purdue's downfall at Michigan State, its first Big Ten loss in five games. Oregon State, the first coast club to beat, a Big Ten member this season, broke out of a 14-14 halftime deadlock to spank the Hoosiers, Paul Brothers hurling two touchdown passes and scoring another himself. Earlham Revenges Loss Earlham, which had a 21- game winning streak, clipped by Kalamazoo for its lone loss last year, took a 40-12 revenge Eagles Start Minus Use of Biggest Boy • Coach Bill Britton will open the 1964-65 basketball season for Jackson Central minus the services of his biggest boy, due to a football injury which broke two bones in the right hand of 6'2'A" David Leach, whose 19,0-pound frame takes up a lot of space under the backboard. Leach won't be ready until mid December. To compensate for that the Eagle bossman has his boys working on speed, defense and free throw shooting. It's a familiar sight to see every one. of his varsity, as well as B-team- ers, skipping rope at the start of each practice session to develop that footwork and all- important coordination. Four of his varsity are returned lettermen, Leach, Francis Schild- for its seventh straight win this \ meier, Dan Clements and Mike season. Doug Seibert, the state's j McConnell. leading college scorer, led the route with two touchdowns. Whittenberg, the Nation's No.l small college outfit, blasted Wabash,. 42-7, to run its unbeaten string to 30 games. Chuck Green pitched three touchdown passes and scored twice. Elsewhere, Gib Bosworth got all the points in Rose Poly's 13-6 win at St. Procopius; run- nerup Franklin in the Hoosier College Conference, roiled over Hanover,' 34-7, but four other "foreign" teams also prevailed over their Indiana rivals—Defiance dumped Anderson, 33-7; Northwood tripped Taylor, 12-7; Olivet routed Indiana Central, 34-0, and Wilmington edged Manchester, 14-13. OA' THE SIDELINES BY HAM RJGG < GOLDWATER. "REMOVED" LONDON (UPI) — The likeness of defeated Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater has been removed from Madame Tussaud's Waxworks, it was reported Sunday. The Sunday Mirror uoted a spokesman at the wax saying, "Goldwater'will not be melted down. We will put him to one side in case he comes in useful later on." Britton is high on Schildmeier, a proven competitor who he expects to be his strongest offensive threat as well as a top'- notch.defensive man at guard, and McConnell has adjusted well to his transfer and is expected to fit in well as another scoring threat. Aside from Leach, the only other big boy in the Eage lineup is Larry Kerfoot, a 6'2" junior. Two players stand an even six feet, Darrell Teal, a 190 pound senior who did not letter last season and Rusty Beck, a 165-pound junior forward. Rounding out his squad, Britton has guards Mike Par 4«n, a 5'9" senior and Mike Sumner a very quick 5'4" junior; Dick Russell a sophomore forward at 5'10" and Kent Carson, a 160 pound freshman who stands 5'11". The Jackson Central schedule lists nine home games and nine out of town games in addition to the county tourney Jan. 7-9 at Carmel , and the Sectional tourney which also is listed for Carmel iFeb. 26.

Independence Street SERVICE MOTOR CO. Ehone OS 5-4549 Advertise In The Tribune Local fans will foe mighty in-] terested to hear the latest word on former Blue Devils Dick.Mc­ intosh ^nd Harvey Harmon. In the annual pre-season'game between the University" of Georgia varsity and the. freshman Dick Mcintosh plunked 24 points through the basket against the varsity. Some one mentioned that to Dick's dad, and Charles modestly confirmed 'his son's achievement adding, "Yes, but that was only.a practice game,' to which the questioner said "That's what I mean—what 's going he going to do when he's really trying'." Then comes word to coach Dick Barr from Red Rocha at the University tf Hawaii, and Red says he's tickled to death that he got Harmon, expressing the belief that if Harmon wasn't a freshman, he'd be able ; to make the University's starting five on the varsity. Real Compliment- Closer to home, came another fine tribute of which local fans may well .be proud. We talked with Jim Carey, one of the officials, after Friday night's game and Carey told this writer and Tom Schumaker of Wabash, "You know Tipton can foe mighty proud that it has two coaches the calibre of John Moses and Dick Barr. they both turn out not only athletes but gentlemen. I refereed a lot of football and toaskefball games) each year, and most of the time, from the opening play,, as they face each other, the boys are calling ea'ch other so-and-so's. The Tipton boys play hard, but they play it clean. They're real gentlemen." "Looking For Games" Speaking of officiating, Tipton's assistant football coach, the personable John Oberhelman, works during the winter as a basketball official. He's new to this area, after playing his high school ball for Evansville and college ball for Butler, so he's looking for openings to work basketball games in this area. Any area coaches or athletic directors who still have openings for officials on their schedules, can contact Oberhelman at T.H.S., and we'll guarantee them a first class job. One of his best recommenda tions is a spot on the Indianapolis Broad Ripple schedule Our Mistake Now In a front page item Saturday, we tried to correct a mistake in the mimeographed ticket in structions released by T.H.S. by informing the public that they should enter the main door of the high school and the south door of the gym when they go to purchase their season tickets Friday night. Somehow or other we got the day in as Tuesday. It should be Friday, as stated originally, but the door directions as listed above are correct. Tuesday is the right when the open house-is going to be held during which Dick Barr will have his Blue Devil varsity in a regular scrimmage. ' Fifteen Seniors Speaking of that varsity, we REALLY feel sorry for coach Dick Barr. After the footballers turned out Saturday for two practices on the hardwood, Barr now finds himself with a varsity 1 squad of 16 boys, 15 of whom are seniors. .Jim Harmon, the footballing quarterback who de-J velopetl so well this year, is the only junior on the squad. That 16 may be reduced by several more after two practice sessions today, and will certainly be reduced before Friday when the making last year's Sectional roster: Gary Meyers and Dave Quigley. ' Fastest Boys Jim Hannah, Jerry Carter and Larry Smith were members of the Jefferson Township team last season. Bill Elliott played both varsity and B-team ball but did not letter, while Harmon, Ren Long, Bob Crull and Terry Weber were B-team members last season at Tipton. Rumbaugh did not go out for basketball last year but he's a natural athlete with a good body, qiiick hands and the fastest boy on the team and one who, as Barr put it, he has to give a good tryout. Of those at whom he was getting his first look Saturday, Barr was impressed with both Rumbaugh and Jim Hannah, the speedy and strong former Yankee. Looking Good Quigley may be the key to whether Tipton can rebound this year from the loss of starters like Harvey Harmon and Dick Mcintosh, and so far, 'Barr is very favorably impressed with the tall hut slender senior who, while lacking the "foody" that Barr favors in his - hardwood candidates, possesses a real good shot, a lot of determination and is the quickest big boy Barr says he has ever coached. Barr would again like to go with the full court press which made so many Tipton opponents touch the panic button last season, and Quigley . indicates he can fit into that style of play. Of the others who have been working out daily since .Oct. 1, Keith Smith and Donnie ' Curnutt have beeji real impressive and both also fit into that press. Smith's shooting touch was tight last 'year but he's worked hard on it ever since and has softened it up so that his hitting has improved greatly. He jumps like a gazelle and there isn't a harder battler on the Tipton floor. Shouid Take Over Curnutt, crowding 6'4", may be the greatest natural shot Tipton has ever seen. Last year, although he carried a 16.9 per game average, he was inclined to ease off on his shooting if he missed more than two in a row;, hut then he had such shooters as Mcintosh and Harmon in front of him. With Mac, who carried a per game average gone from the lineup/ Barr feels Curnutt as a senior will be willing to .take over the reigns and he looks for the "splendid splinter" to be one of the sensations of the entire state. Donnie also fits well into the full court press, can fast break with the best of them and although he shoots largely from outside, will get more than his share of rebounds off the defensive boards. Ankle Injured Danny Crouch reported with a gimpy ankle after the Wabash football game and spent Saturday afternoon just shooting and soaking the ankle in the whirlpool bath but a starter last year and a key figure in the full court press, he'll be ready in a few more days. Bill Moore looks just as strong in a basketball uniform as his opponents found him in football and Barr was very impressed with the big fellow in both Saturday workouts. A real pleasure to Barr Saturday was Lex Boyd, who at 6'2" and 200 pounds, is 3 0 4 •another who has the body that j Watson -3 2 (Continued on Page 6) I (Continued on Page 6) Windfall Wins 51-47 Saturday From Spartans Sharpsviile-Prairie and Windfall battled" through a nip-and- tuck thriller Saturday night before the largest crowd ever to see' a regular season game'be- twVen those two rivjals with ccach Roy Watson's Dragons emerging the final winner 51-47. It was the second victory in as many outings for Windfall while the loss came in the Spartan's season opener. It appeared quite' probable that that one game experienccl under their belt provided the Dragons with their margin of victory as- the Spartans appeared "tight" at the outset and fell behind 15-6 in the opening quarter when their, shots- were shotgunning instead of arch- ; ing at the basket. They led the ' victors in both offensive and defensive rebounding but the ,' Dragons had an edge in speed • and utilized this to the utmost ' in applying a full court press • that forced Sharpsviile-Prairie ; into errors which later in the season they may not be' committing. Press Worked The Spartans bounced back well in the second quarter, outscoring Windfall 21-9 - and with their height advantage appeared enroute to victory, enlarging their 27-24 halftime margin to eight points at 35-27 early in the third period. But that was their biggest advantage as Windfall- plyed the press, forced the Spartans into errors and coming from behind forged into a 40-38 head at the end of three periods. Sharpsviile-Prairie hung on, taking advantage of free throw shooting in the final period, but the Dragons were far more accurate from the floor and were never headed in the final quarter. Shooting Off The comparative low scoring was the result of first-game marksmanship on the part of both clubs, Windfall hitting only 20 of 68 for a .294 average and just .500 at the foul line where they netted 11 of 22 free throws while Sharpsviile-Prairie tallied five less field goals with only 15 of. 66 for a .222 average. At the foul line they kept in the game by hitting 17 of 22. i Windfall got its top scoring effort from Craig Plummer with 20 points while Steve Pierce was the only other player on either team in double figures, getting 13 for the night. Should Improve Jerry Ogle was the only Spartan hitting with any accuracy, puting in four of his seven shots for eight points to lead his club. Better efforts should be expected in the future from Tom Carter who hit only 2 of 17, Denny- Cullison who had only 2 of 10 and big Dick Kingery with only one in 8. Carter departed the game via the foul route and his absence under the boards was costly. Windfall's hustle is the most impressive 'feature of its game and is going to offset height advantages held by many other clubs 'before this season is over, 1 while Bob Blessing's club should improve sharply as the boys get: a few games under their belts! and loosen up on their shooting.! Windfall also took B-team! honors 37-27. I SHARPSV1LLE-PRAIRIE j FG FT PTSi Ogle 4 0 8 Carter 2 Kingery , • 1 Cullison ' 2 season tickets go on sale. In fact, the squad will be reduced before Thursday, when the tic kets go on sale to parents of the players, in fairness to the parents who may or may not be expecting their 'boys to play this season. -The Roster Now As it stands right now, the 15 seniors still on the varsity squad are: Don Curnutt, Gary-Meyers Dave Quigley, < Keith Smith. Jerry Carter, Bill'Moore, Dan Crouch, Lex Boyd, Jim Rurn baugh, Jim Hannah, Ron Long. Bill Elliott, Larry Smith,, Bob| Crull and Terry Weber. Since the' footballers just reported Saturday, coach Barr wants an other day or two to look at them and compare them with the others, before deciding on who to .issue the 12 .varsity uniforms to.
