F PAGE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Tuesday, Noy.lp, 1964 Elwood, Tipton Split Gridiron Honors In Central Conference FINAL CIC STANDINGS TEAM Elwood Tipton Peru Huntington Wabash Alexandria Hartford City Elwood and Tipton ran their season records to 5-1 in the CIC and 7-3-0 overall to tie for the conference championship last weekend, just a whisker ahead of Peru which finished 4-1-1 in league play and 7-2-1 overall in one of the best matched seasons the conference has • ever recorded. Going out of the league, conference teams won 16 games while losing 10. including competition against such perennially strong clubs as Marion, Logansport, Greenfield, Madison Heights, Warsaw, Noblesville, West Lafayette, Penn, Fort Wayne and Cathedral. Three of the contenders scored more than 200 points and two* had over 100 more than they allowed their opponents.' ' i - All seven conference schools celebrate the season : Thursday night in the annual OIC banquet which this year goes to co-champion Elwood. For Elwood it is the sixth time their Panthers have won or shared the crown .and the fourth occasion for Tipton. Elwood first shared the title in 1943" with Warsaw. They won all alone in 1948 and repeated in 1956 and again in 1957. In 1959 they shared the crown with Huntington. Tipton, which has never won the title outright, shared it in 1953 with Rochester, in 1958 with Huntington and in 1962 in a four-way tie with Alexandria, Huntington and Peru. During the Thursday banquet, CIC secretary John Ward will announce the members of the all-conference teams and honorable mention winners, as voted on by the coaches.

By MILTON RIGHMAN UP I Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — This may come as a shock to Cassius Clay but there's another heavyweight around who is absolutely convinced he is "the greatest" and why settle for one when there is a possibility two can drown each other out. Like Clay, 23-year-old Dick Wipperman of Sloan, N.Y., could not accurately be described as a blushing violet although unlike Cassius, he does not try to beat you over the head with his claim." "I think I'm the best heavyweight in the world," says Wipperman quietly while emphasizing he's including both Clay and Sonny Liston. "I've seen them both, and I think I'd have less trouble .with Liston, but I know in my heart I can beat either one." >.,,,. Stakes Out Course Wipperman • meets slugging Oscar Bonavena of Buenos Aires in the 10-round main event at Madison'Square Garden Friday night, and he already has staked out- his future course. » "If, I win, I'm going to demand a bout with the winner of the Clay-Liston fight,'' he said. "And if they don't give me the winner, I'm going to join the./Washington police force and to hell with fighting." Some consider Bonavena the hardest hitter to come along since Rocky Marciano. He has won all six of his bouts by knockouts and is a 2 to 1 favorite, but Wipperman is sure he'll beat him. Wipperman realizes he's talking up a blue streak and that he's in danger of infringing on Clay's copyright, but he's somewhat disillusioned with the fight game. Still Nowhere "I've been fighting three years, I have as good a record as anyone around and where has it gotten me? Nowhere," he said, bitterly. "I'm not; much for boasting, but it's necessary to talk it up. I'm not the Olympic champ, like Clay was. At least they rated him. They never even have rated me in the top 50." Of the 30 bouts he's been in, Burris, Alex Open Seasons This Weekend INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)— Indiana's infant high school basketball campaign picks up momentum this week with the debut of half a dozen major conference clubs—but the real big shots won't join the firing line for at least another week. Alexandria and Muncie Burris of the Central, Conference, Connersville, Martinsville and Rushville of the South Central and Terre Haute State of the Western loop usher in the season next weekend. Of them, only Rushville compiled a glittering record last season, 17-3, but took of course a backseat to Columbus which finished regular season warfare with a 42-game winning streak. | While Rushville lost the nucleus . of last year's fine club, Burris should be much improved over its 7-11 record of last time when it opens at Middletown Friday. Coach Rex Rudicel, starting his 17th year at the helm of the Owls, has five varsity players at least 6-2 tall. Connersville, only 5-15 last year, opens at home against Liberty, Martinsville against Mooresville, and Rushville against Batesville, all Friday. Alexandria entertains Anderson Highland and Terre Haute State is at Rosedale, both Saturday. - Southeastern rivals Madison and Scottsburg aim for their second triumphs Saturday — Madison at Salem and Scottsburg at Corydon. Alabama Moves Up On Top Rated Irish THREE IRISH INJURED SOUTH BEND, Ind. (UPI) — Halfback Bill Wilski and linebackers Jim Carroll and Jim Lynch are on the injury list for Notre Dame and may not play against Michigan State on Saturday. Wipperman has won 26, including 12 by knockouts, lost three and fought one draw. The loss that bothers him most was to big Jim Beattie in his last bout at the Garden on Oct. 2. Referee Barney Smith stopped the fight in the seventh round, awarding it to Beattie because, he claimed, Wipperman had taken 10 punches in a row without retaliating. By GEORGE C. LANG FORD UP.I Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — Alabama's Crimson Tide, the most consistent. team in the United Press International college football ratings this season, edged within 13 points of top-ranked Notre Dame today. Alabama replaced Ohio State jin second place following Penn State's crushing 27-0 victory over the Buckeyes Saturday jwhich tumbled the Ohioans to seventh place in the' UPI standings. Alabama, ranked third the first month, of the season and advanced to second two weeks ago before returning to third last week. The Tide rallied to beat Lou- lisiana State 17-9 Saturday to clinch the Southeastern Conference championship and extend its winning streak to eight. Notre Dame (7-0) lost two first-place'votes from its total of 21 a week ago but retained its total of 329 points to hold the top spot for the second week. Alabama received 10 first-place ballots from the 35 coaches on the UPI rating board. Arkansas and Nebraska took advantage of Ohio State's misfortune to move up a' notch to the third and fourth spots, respectively. Both have perfect 8-0 records. Texas, No. 5, and Michigan, No. 6, each climbed two places from the preceding week, while Oregon State (7-1), the Pacific (AAWU) Conference leader, made the biggest advance — ,from 12th to eighth. Georgia Tech dropped from sixth to .ninth after being knocked from the unbeaten ranks by Tennessee, and Louisiana State, which lost its first game to Alabama, slid from ninth to 10th. Michigan State, which meets Notre Dame next week and is riding a streak of three consecutive Big Ten victories including a 21-7 upset of Purdue Saturday, vaulted from 16th to 11th. Syracuse moved from 14th to 12th; Oregon remained 13th; Purdue dropped from 10th to 14th and Florida State, tied with Purdue last week in 10th, skidded to 15th place. Georgia ranked No. 16 followed by Arizona State and Bowling Green, one-of six major college teams with a perfect record, in a 17th-place tie. Florida State, Auburn, Southern, California and Utah were locked up in a four-way dead heat for 19th. . Notre Dame and Alabama, the only two teams ranked in the top 10 at the start of the season which hav^ not been beaten, face the stiffest competition this weekend. Notre Dame hosts 11th - ranked Michigan State and Alabama visits ninth-ranked Georgia Tech. ON THE SIDELINES BY HAM R1GG Top Coaches For Platooning NEW YORK (UPI) — College football's unwritten 'rule of 1964 is spelled p-l-a-t-o-o-n-ing. Coaches Ara Parseghian of Notre Dame, Tom ' Nugent of Maryland and Glenn' Dobbs of Tulsa all made that)plain Monday when they called on the National Rules Committee to restore unlimited substitutions and. eliminate game-delaying penalties. If "We wouldn't be 7-0 today if we didn't have the. opportunity to use specialists," said Parseghian, whose Irish are ranked No. 1 in the country by the United Press International board of coaches.j "We went to platoons in spring practice and it's one of the reasons we were [able to do well against teams that perhaps were better than we," added Nugent. j "Let's get rid of the penalties and get on with the game," concluded Dobbs, who said he will continue to vote for pla tooning as a member of the Style, size, snuings, selection The size is full. The selection, large. The style, obvious. The savings? Fontostk. Every Coronet model (and there are 17) is priced lpwei 1 than;every comparable model of Ford and Chevrolet. And we mean a lot lower. The prke savings are at least 104 dollars on the six-cylinder sedan ... and as much as 604 dollars on the V8 sports convertible, the Coronet 500!

It's like those intentional bases on balls in baseball j— a waste of time to take those penalties. "They say platoon football hurts the smalled s c }h o o 1 s," Dobbs wound up. "Rut that's not so. All the small schools in our area are using them and playing better than ever." Coaches have, in effect, restored a version of the unlimited substitution ruling — pla tooning — by accepting delay- of-the-game penalties' in order to get their specialists into the game. . | "Now we have to decide whether to go all thej way with unlimited substitutions or return to the other system of hav-. ing players line up and regis-, ter with officials eachjtime they enter — during timeouts," said Dave-Nelson, coach j of Delaware and a member of the rules committee. | Dean Chance Named Outstanding Pitcher By DICK DEW UPI Sports Writer BOSTON (UPI) — Wilmer Dean Chance, whose chief claim to fame had been as Bo Belinsky's partner in a variety of improbable escapades, has been voted baseball's outstanding pitcher. The 23-year-old Los Angeles Angel righthander was an easy winner in Cy Young Award voting announced Monday. And his victory margin was in sharp contrast to the scores of nine of the games, he pitched last season. Chance, who tied the major league record for most 1-0 victories in a season at five, rolled up 17 of the 20 votes filed by a select committee of the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Larry Jackson of the Chicago Cubs was second with two votes for his basebalHeading total of 24 victories while 1963 Young award winner Sandy Koufax picked up the odd vote for a 19-5 record with the Los Angeles Dodgers.. Easy Winner The easy selection of Chance came after the quick-working fast - ball pitcher tied the 1-0 record last set in 1933 by Carl Hubbell. But not even Hubbell had the luck Chance did because he lost four games by the identical score-this past season.- Chance, who turned in one of his finest performances by shutting out the National' Leaguers for three innings of all-star play last season, said he was "real happy" oyer his selection but admitted he had been told three weeks ago that he had been, chosen. Hy Hurwitz, national BWAA secretary who announced the poll results, said Chance's unidentified informant was premature because the ballots were not tabulated until Monday. Upon getting the news officially, Chance insisted on sharing credit with at least five other members of the Angels — Coach Marv Grissomp first baseman Joe Adock, shortstop Jim Fregosi,. second baseman Bobby Knoop and outfielder Lou Clinton. "I hope to win eight or nine games before the All-Star break next season," said Chance, who had only a 5-5 mark at mid- season. 'I I can do that, I know I can have another good year. I have always been a strong finisher." Prick Praises Chance Baseball Commissioner Ford Frick, who presents the annual award, admitted he. would have voted for Chance himself if he had been on the selection committee. | . "He's one of the great ones," Frick said of the Wooster, Ohio, resident. . j Chance's 1964 record was in sfiarp contrast to his earlier major league efforts. He won 20 lost 9, pitched-a lively-ball-era high of 11 shutouts | and a league peak of 15 . complete games. He had a 1.65 earned run average in 278 innings during which he walked j only 86 and struck out 207. t ' His previous two and a fraction seasons with the Angejs had produced a career mark of 27 wins and 30 losses and a 3.23 earned run, average with a high of 14 victories in 1962 as a rookie. j We appreciated Jim Bannon's | plug for the Blue Devils in Monday's Kokorho paper, so it's kind of embarrassing to | correct a quote he attributed to us about Harvey Harmon. He had us saying that Harvey was doing so well -at Hawaii "he may make the varsity his freshman > year". Jim picked that up while covering the Tipton-Wabash game last Friday, but what we. actually said was that "if he wasn't a freshman, coach Red Rocha said he was good enough to make the varsity." Frosh are" not eligible for the varsity at Hawaii nor at other NCAA schools. Satans Respected We had quite a gab-fest with a number of state sportswriters and radio broadcasters last night at the Speedway Motel while attending Tony Hullman's annual party for members of the "fourth estate". In view of the departure of Dick Mcintosh and' Harvey Harmon from coach Barr's Blue Devils, it was kind of surprising to find the respect with which the Satans are being regarded hi advance of this year's season basketball opener. A Logansport writer- (they cover the Peru area) asked us who was gbing to be tough in the CIC this year, and before we could answer another non- CIC scribe pointed at us and said "The Blue Devils". Similar sentiments were expressed by George Frye of Huntington and several of the Indianapolis writers who followed Tipton last season aand knew Barr had three starters back.' Such was the gist too, of Jim Bannon's column yesterday at Kokomo. Lots of Powers Actually, while we expect Tipton to have a real fine ball club, we don't expect them. to come up with near the record they had last season. Several of this year's opponents are greatly improved over last trip around. We can start right off with Peru which in .addition to big Mike Eikenberry, has been very much improved with the acquistion of Gayle Bomar, the Kentucky transfer so responsible for Peru's football victory over the Satans. Frankfort is expected to be stronger, as is Clinton Central with whom the Blue Devils open their season. Carmel is big and strong and by now, even though they lost some good ones, Tipton fans have come to recognize the fact that under ' coach Bob Straight, Huntington is always going to be tough. The same thing goes for Elwood, under coach Ray Manis, even though Tipton will have the home court , advantage. That'll only set the Panther mentor up for a new towel- throwing, record (only kidding Ray). And according to a story elsewhere on this page announcing the season opening this week of Alexandria and Muncie Burris, the latter club is going to be one of the biggest the Owls have ever floored with five boys standing 6'2" or better. . Tough Tourney One writer, looking at the Tipton schedule last night thought that the holiday tourney this season had a better field than Tipton faced last year ' at Lafayette with the three opponents offering a bet- t e r balanced competition than the Satans played a year EWERS NAMED DIRECTOR DUNEDIN, Fla, <UPI) —Dr. Joseph R.- Ewers of Bloomington, Ind., will succeed jThomas W. rane as executive (director of the Professional Golfers Association. • . j Ewers, an associate professor of business administration and assistant to the president at Indiana University, will |join the PGA staff shortly after [the first of the year. TRESSEL SELECTED NEW YORK (UPI) 4- Martin L. Tressel of Pittsburgh, Pa., has been nominated toT president of the United "States Lawn Tennis Association. ' Tressel,- acting president. of the USLTA since the Sdeath of James B. Dickey, and 'other officers are up for election at the 84th annual meeting at Colorado Springs, Colo., Feb.) 6, 1965. INAUGURATES AWARD ROCHESTER, N.Y. ^UiPI) The first James H. Ellery Award will be given at the conclusion of the present American Hockey League season to the individual in the news media who contributes most to league progress. Ellery,' who died lait" April, was the AHL's secretary and publicity director. > ago. We expect the Blue Devils to be tough - yes, but let's use a little logic. If Tipton had all five starters back, it would be reasonable to expect each to improve just a little and therefore we could expect a better team. But we don't have all five starters back. So we'll allow for a little improvement in the three starters who are returned. For the team as a whole to improve, that 5 means coach Barr has to'develop two boys from the reserves or.the B-team, capable of playing just as good, if not better, than Dick Mcintosh and Harvey Harmon did last year. Now seriously, does anyone expect that? Better Depth The one thing we do believe Barr and his Blue Devils will have going for them is- the No. 6 man that they didn't have last year when Harmon was injured. In fact, we also think they'll have the No. 7 and the No. 8 man who will be able to interchange without appreciably weakening the club. And in case of injury or one or two boys fouling out, that could be very important. Like last year, we feel there are at least two boys on this year's club whose loss would hurt Tipton in any game, but there will be adequate replacements for the No. s 3, 4 and 5 boys, and if we're right, those fans who line up in front of the main entrance to the high school 'Friday night to purchase season tickets are going to have a very enjoyable season. Yes, we do look for a mighty fine Tipton ball club, but let's- not start putting pressure on the kids before they even take the floor for their first game, by talking how about another powerhouse like the Satans had last year. Let's wait until they get a couple of games under their belt and at the same time we get a chance to judge the improved opposition. LOST FOR SEASON OAKLAND, Calif. (UPI) — Rookie linebacker Dan Conners, who hurt a shoulder earlier this season and has been recuperating, will replace Bill Budness in the Oakland Raiders' lineup against Houston on Sunday.
