IS J Irish Make Joke Of Talk of Upset By United Press International The nation's tpp-ra'nked undefeated • college football teams seem almost oblivious to the building bowl bid pressure as they keep on extending their victory strings. Notre Dame, which isn't expected to compete in a bowl anyway, took last weekend in stride by thrashing Michigan State, 34-7J to run its record to '8-0. The Irish were considered ripe for an upset. But upset talk only lasted until the second play of the game when . halfback Nick Eddy sprinted 61 .yards for the first touchdown. Eddy ran 16 times for 113 yards and another five- yard touchdown and caught a two-point conversion pass from quarterback John Huarte. . The Huarte to Jack Snow passing combination balanced the Irish attack. Huarte completed 11 of 17 for 193 yards, six "to Snow for 114 yards. He passed for a touchdown and a pair of two-point conversions and ran 21 yards for another score. Bowl Teams The next three teams in the ratings —Alabama, Arkansas, and Nebraska — won't have bowl pressure bothering them any more either. They all ran their \ r e c o r d s to 9-0 ' and clinched major bowl berths. Second-ranked Alabama defeated ninth-rated Georgia Tech,- 24-7, to assure itself a spot in the Orange Bowl even if it loses to Auburn in its last £amet Ailing. Joe Namath came off the bench in the second period to throw two long touchdown passes' and put the Tide ahead, 14-0, at halftime. The lead bulged to 24 -1) before Tech's lone score in the last period. The Yellow Jackets might still get a Sugar Bowl«bid, however. Third-ranked Arkansas and fourth-ranked Nebraska will clash', in the Cotton Bowl. Arkansas beat Southern Methodist 44-0. ; -i Settles for Second Nebraska slipped by Oklahoma State, 27-14, but had to settle 1 for its second bowl choice. The Cornhuskers had hoped to -return to the Orange Bowl, where they beat Auburn last year, but had to settle for the Cotton Bowl instead. Texas beat Texas Christian, 28-13, to run its record to 8-1 for the only other major bowl berth settled on Saturday. Sixth-ranked Michigan and seventh-rated Ohio State will really have the bowl jitters when the Big Ten's representative is decided in their game this weekend. • . v Both teams kept their hopes alive as Michigan ran its record to 7-1 with a.34-20 win over Iowa. Ohio State equalled it with a 10-0 victory over Northwestern. Hopes Dampened Oregon State, the eighth-rated team, had its Rose Bowl hopes dampened by a 16-7 loss to Stanford. The loss gives Washington, UCLA and Southern California a crack at the Pacific title along with the Beavers. An almost sure representative in the Sugar Bowl is lOth-rated Louisiana State, which ran its record to 5-1-1 with a 14-10 squeaker over Mississippi State. Florida, which was idle last weekend, and Florida State, which beat North Carolina State, 28-6, will probably be battling for a Gator Bowl spot when they meet this week. Syracuse, which beat Virginia Tech 20-15, is a likely opponent if it doesn't go to the Sugar Bowl. FOR REAL ESTATE & INSURANCE CONSULT 120 South West St. SPARTANS FG FT PTS Ogle — 3 2 8 Mumaugh ..

INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) —The season debuts of champion Lafayette and Columbus and Tipton headline this week's accelerated Indiana high school basketball program. Lafayette, with Bill Wolsieffer in charge in the absence of ailing Marion Crawley, displays a new look in its Saturday home opener against Attica. The Bronchos graduated then- entire starting lineup of last year, including Denny Brady arid Terry Stillabower from the club mat lost only to Tipton during the regular season. That was a 72-67 setback for the championship of the Lafayette Holiday tourney, but then Lafayette rolled to 19 consecutive victories for its third state crown and Crawley's fourth. Columbus, ; also a state finalist last March, boasts a 42-game regular season winning streak. Although minus its first eight players, including the talented Jerry Newsom and Steve "Hollenbeck, coach Bill Stearman should have another formidable quintet led by Dave Stillabower. North Vernon is the Bulldog's first opponent at home Friday. Tipton also starts the same night, at Clinton Central, with its 1-2 punch of Dick Mcintosh and Harvey Harmon gone. Coach Dick Barr has Don Curnutt and several other capable hands back, however, but it will take some to equal last year's classy 19-1 season record spoiled only by a two-point loss at Elwood late in the season. State tourney runnerup Huntington and Eyansville Rex Mundi, the other 1964 finalists, get another week's practice be. fore opening the season. South Bend St. cJoseph's football mythical state champions open Friday against city rival Adams. Kokomo, T'oomington, and Warsaw, all perfect in football this fall, open the same night at home against Sheridan, Shelbyville and Pierceton, respectively.

Wallace tangles with Gary Roosevelt Thursday and Riley is at Gary Froe bel Saturday. Southport, usually among the best in the state, opens . at Franklin Friday and entertains New Albany^ Saturday.

Sportswriters and Broadcasters Association is now in the process of picking its annual Indiana All Star Football Team arid the weekend mail brought us a list of the final nominees for that list after it had ibeen narrowed to roughly 20 boys for each position. The organization wll pick a first, second and third team after all votes are in, and the 33 boys and the "coach of the year" in the state will be hon -J ored at an All State banquet Dec. 12 at the VanOrman Suburban Hotel in Bloomington sponsored by the Herald-Telephone, of that city". Three From Tipton Heading the list are the candidates for end,, and No. 1 man on that list is Tipton's Bill Moore, although the Yo-Yo operated at end this season only on defense. Apparently his two-year record as a soph and junior at end, plus his running at halfback and occasional quarterback this season, was the clincher. Two other Titpon boys are also on the final balldt. . . fullback Dan Crouch and guard Lennie Tragesser, a junior whose play in the Cathedral game brought him to the attention of the big city press. The scribes and announcers are to vote for six ends, six tackles,. six guards, three cen ters, three quarterbacks,, six halfbacks and three fullbacks. CIC All Stars , Tipton, with eight boys, placed more on the CIC all star honor roll last week than any other team in the conference but even then we were disappointed in one selection. Of course it was an honor to even be mentioned this year in view of the fact that all stars were cut from three to two teams plus honorable mention, but we'd have moved Jim Rum baugh up at least to second team honors instead of the honorable mention he did receive from the coaches. Great Blocker ' We don't have the figures in front of us through the last two games of the season, but we wouldn't be one bit surprised if Jim wound up with the leading average yards per carry of any of the Tipton backs. In addition, he did one whale of a job for the other .backs in throwing key blocks. It is understandable that Jim didn't make the'top team, for there isn't a coach in the conference who didn't try to get mention for one of his own backs, and with others being plugged like Gayle Bomar of Peru, Jim Hahn of Alex, Jerry Franks of Huntington, Lyle Robinson of Elwood, Jack Edgemon of Hartford City, Terry Sutton of Wabash, Randy Pell of Wabash, plus both Crouch and Moore of Tipton, it w a s probably too much to hope that out of 28 backs in the conference, Tipton would have three of the first four. Nevertheless we know darned well that his teammates and coach Moses agree with us that Jim belonged up there somewhere. We just hope now that Jim's legs will get a good rest and that he'll get all the honors he deserves w h e n' track season rolls around. Another Good One Another boy we were mighty glad to see getting honorable mention in this fine field of athletes was Mike Rice. The linemen, particularly the interior linemen, from tackle to tackle, seldom get the recognition they deserve, but Mike stood out time and again, and certainly deserved his honor. Cagers Ready The county schools have already launched the roundball season. Friday night -Tipton's Blue Devils get underway against Clinton. Central, team that was reported in ad vance to be tough, and which lived.up to that notice .by run nirig up a 20-point margin last weeic in its opener. Coach Dick Barr saw'fhat one and said the Bulldogs looked good partic ularly on.defense. At the same time, two CIC. schools started action, Muntie Burris defeating Middletown a n d Alexandria running up a 77-56 victory over Anderson Highland. Coaches Poll While at the CIC banquet last week we distributed polls to the -basketball coaches who were present and mailed copies to those absent, asking them for a Baltimore Needs One Mom W«" for Weste^ brief opinion of their own chances and a prediction as to how they expect the CIC teams to finish this year.. We've received four of those ballots; back, plus one ; from Dick Barr, and for-those whoj are expecting the Blue Devils to run rampant this-year, it might be interesting to note that of the four'received, two of the CIC coaches don't even expect Tipton to win their own conference. So far, it is Elwood and Tipton, each with two first and two second place votes with third place battle between Peru and Huntington. Ballot Is Confidential We promised the coaches we wouldn't tell how they voted individually. That's in case they expect their teams to be at or near the' bottom and wouldn't want their own boys to know how they rate 'em. We will prepare a CIC roundup for all conference newspapers as soon as the final ballots are in, listng the overall finish as predicted by the eight coaches. Overlooking Tigers In picking Peru -third or fourth; we have a sneaking idea sorneone is overlooking them. With 6'6" Mike Eikenberry back, the Tigers will be the biggest team in the conference. They've also picked. up' two transfers who are reportedly mighty good boys. One is Gayle Bomar who gave the Blue Devils such a lesson in football, the other Rick Inniger whose older brother was an outstanding eager. Looking <5ood Tipton coach Dick "nrr has •one boy who impresses and at the same time worries him Lex Boyd. The 6'2" and 180-pounder, who high jumped 5'10" last Spring has come up with a knot just over his biceps that is believed to be a calcium deposit. If not too far advanced, there are shots which can dis- olve this condition, but right now it is a pretty painful arm. Lex was a member of that great freshman squad of four ye'ars ago that pounded everyone on its schedule to a pulp, and he has absolutely delighted Barr with his play since the football season ended, so the condition of his arm is a real source of worry to Barr right now. The Tipton coach had his usual source of worries last week \vher£ up, ,',ti\ e changeover from cleated shoes to rubber soles, the football boys all came tip with blistered feet. Some of them, on< Dan Crouch, Bill Moore and Jim Harmon were pretty bad. They're expected to be allright by Friday though. A football ankle injury to Crouch, and a similar basketball mishap to Moore are apparently recovering also. The Rest O.K Barr reports Dohnie Curnutt is poundnig the net in the same sizzling manner which burned up so many of them last season. Keith Smith is taller, heavier, stronger and just as fast, Dave Quigley at 6'5" is what Barr calls the fastest big boy he's ever coached, and he has several others who have been uri expected pleasures, among them the two Jefferson Township ad" ditions, Jerry Carter and the husky Jim Hannah. Bill Elliott. Barr, ays, has to take off a little weight, but he's been working hard and the work is expected to do its own redifcing Gary Meyers may be the best 10-15-foot shot on.t h e team and Ron Long is turning into a bull on the boards, j so in all, it looks like the local hardwood followers will find it well, worth while to make the jtrip to Clinton Central IFriday^ Don't forget!

Jim Says: • ' "U-2 CAN BE ; A COUPON CLIPPER AT FALVEYS" (By TIM MORI ARTY. UPI Sports Writer Make it one for the Colts . . . two for the Browns. Those are the riiagic numbers needed to bring together Baltimore arid Cleveland for the first time in a National Football League championship game. The Colts can clinch their first - Western Division crown in five years by beating the Rams next Sunday . at Los Angeles while the Browns need only two victories in their remaining four games to wrap up the Eastern Division pennant and the .host team berth in the playoff r .Dec. 27. Revenge Victory A 17-14 revenge victory over the Minnesota Vikings Sunday enabled the Colts to open a 3% game lead in the western sector with only four left to play. It gave Baltimore a 9-1 log for the season while the Detroit Lions and the Los Angeles Rams, who both lost,' remained tied for second with 5-4-1 records. The Browns (8-1-1) pulled 2'/ J games ahead of second place St. Louis (5-3-2) in the East when they whipped Detroit, 3721, while the Cardinals settled for a 10-10 standoff: against the New York Giants. Old pros Johnny Unitas and Lenny Moore and substitute end Alex Hawkiris teamed up to help the Colts avenge their lone loss of the season to the Vikings. Unitas pegged a third period touchdown pass to Moore that covered 74 yards and put Baltimore ahead,, 10-0. It. was the 13th straight game in which Moore had scored at least one TD —an NFL record. Then, after .Minnesota- had barged ahead, 14-10, the Colts pulled ot out on a 27-yard strike from Unitas to Hawkins, who was filling in for injured Ray Berry. Brown Scores Twice Jim Brown was ' practically the whole show in Cleveland's first regular' season victory over the Lions in seven meetings. The veteran fullback scored twice to boost his ca reer' TD total to 103, just two short of the NFL record held by Don Hutson, and pushed his season' rushing total past the 1,000-yard mark by gaining 147 in 24 carries. The Cardinals' deadlock against the Giants moved them closer to elimination. It was produced' when Don Chandler^ kicked a 21-yard field goal for New York with six minutes left to play. The Chicago Bears, finally flashing some of their 1963 form, rolled to a 34-24 victory over the Rams; -the San Francisco Forty-Niners upset the Green Bay Packers, 24-14. the Philadelphia Eagles nipped the Dallas Cowboys, 17-14 and the Washington Redskins blanked the Pittsburgh Steelers, 30-0. Have Field Day Rudy Bukich and Jon Arnett enjoyed themselves at the expense of their old Los Angeles teammates. Bukich tossed three touchdown passes while Arnett plunged for one TD and gained 86 yards rushing as the Bears beat the Rams for the eighth straight time. Rookie quarterback George Mira, starting and finishing his first game for the Forty-Niners, fumbled four times but kept the Packers off balance with his pass-run option plays. He completed 10 of 17 passes . and gained 37 yards rushing. Paul Hornung of the Packers missed four field goal attempts —one from only 27 yards out. Sonny. Jurgensen tossed 80- yard scoring "bombs" to Angelo Coia and Charley Taylor as passes to Pete Retzlaff in the Eagles'victory before a record 55,972 fans at Dallas.
