B-team that may give an indication of what followers of -both units may expect during the _ year. Game time for the inter-squad affair is' 7:15 in the new gym", and the public is invited. Sullivan has no height at all on his outfit,? the tallest member standing 5' 10>£" but both he and varsity coach Dick 'Ban- feel that the freshmen have some real manpower. They'll get quite a test if the B-team goes with its height of 6' 4Vi" Friz Surber, 6' 3" Bob Shortle and 6' 2M-" Bill Compton. They will be rounded out with some good ball handlers and plenty of speed in such boys as sophomore Terry Mcintosh, junior Bill Grishaw, and sophomores Larry Deakyne, Bill Greene, Dan Cochran, Oren Rector and Denny Weber. Sullivan's squad has been pared to 15 boys, with Mike Renie and Fred Tolle the tallest, both a half inch under 5" 11". Several of the freshmen showed fine possibilities in junior high, including Steve Floyd, Mike Lett, Jim Tudor, Greg Miller, John Swift and John Sallee. Sullivan admits he was disappointed with his freshmen footballers, but is much more optimistic over his hardwood candidates who he feels not only want to play but have some ability. He looks for this game, in which five will get the nod for squad,, as a final test to see which five will get thte nod for his starting unit in regular scheduled games this year. The entire freshman roster follows: Player HT.

This may well be the most unusual bonus ever paid any one in basebalL Customarily, baseball bonuses are paid youngsters, not veterans. And what makes this one all the more unusual is that the Yankees are paying it even though Yogi will sign with the Mets. The Mets have called a press conference and it is safely presumed they- will announce the signing of Berra to a two-year contract as player-coach at an estimated salary of $35,000 a year. Even though they fired him as manager after the World Series, the Yankees turned around and offered Yogi a two- year contract as a front office consultant at $25,000 a year. He accepted that contract, signed it and mailed it back to the Yankees. Yanks Give Blessing From Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Ralph Houk, the Yankees' vice president and general manager, said Yogi has the Yankees' blessing no matter what he decides. "If he wishes to sign with the Mets, he is free to do so and we wish him the best of luck," said Houk. "We gave Yogi a two-year contract and told him if he could do better, he was free to do so. No .matter what he did even if he signed with another club—we told him we'd pay him a full year's salary. "That means he has $25,000 coming to him. Yogi never asked for this. It was. our offer pure and simple. It's like a $25,000 bonus, if you- want to caO it that. "Yogi could have had a job with us as' long as he wanted one," Houk continued.- "To my knowledge, he was happy with our contract." Careful Thought Berra did considerable soul searching before casting his lot with the Mets. It wasn't easy to break off his 21-year association with the Yankees. One of the factors that helped influence him was his unexpected dismissal as manager 120 1 last month. 1401 With the Mets, Yogi will try 135 .105 150 175 150 to - get back in playing shape so that he might be able to pinch hit or even play occasionally for hia old boss, Casey Stengel, next season. At 39, it won't be easy. Then when Casey finally steps down, Berra will be No. 1 man .in line, for his job. He has the experience now and the crowd appeal. And he has Casey's blessing, too. . Wilt 2nd In NBA Scoring NEW YORK (UPI) — Wilt Chamberlain of San Francisco and Oscar Robertson of Cincinnati are off the injury list, and the rest of the National Basketball Association had better take note. In statistics released today by the NBA, both Chamberlain and Robertson made their presence felt. Jerry West still leads the scoring race after Sunday's games with 423 points, but Wilt is right behind with 365 points. Chamberlain, moreover, has the league's top scoring average with 36.5 points per game. He has been able to play only 10 games due to a pancreas ailment. The "Big O" picked up 30 assists to raise his total to 101 for 10 games and lead in that department. San Francisco's Guy Rodgers is second with 96 for 14 games. Robertson has been out with an eye infection. West became the scoring leader through accuracy. He has the deadliest eye on field goal shots for a .524 percentage. Detroit's Terry Dischinger follows with .509. Larry Costello, who wasn't among the top ten in free throws last week, raced ahead of Cincinnati's Adrian Smith With a .932 free throw percentage. Smith has .919. Bill Russell of-Boston is the leader in rebounds with 311 followed by Cincinnati's Jerry Lucas, who has 297. Irish Apologize For Attack On M.S.U. Band EAST LANSING, Mich.

That's how much lower priced it is than a comparable model Chevy Impala. (And compared to a Ford Galaxie 500, this Coronet is 314 dollars less!) And Coronet is no compromise. It's a hot car—with optional power to 426 cubic inches. It's a full-size car-in room, looks and ride. But, thank The Dodge Boys, it's lower priced—from the two-door sedan model right on up to the sports jobs. In fact, between convertible models (Coronet 500 vs. Galaxie 500 XL), the price savings is 604 dollars hi favor of Dodge! Any wonder, the Coronet is the sellingest full-size Dodge in history?

STATE ROAD 28 EAST TIPTON, INDIANA CAMELOT AXLASS1C ACHIEVEMENT 5Q .95 ^eweier Tipton basketball fans who missed "This is Basketball", have the opportunity to see the film tonight in comfortable surroundings at the Elwood theatre in a program starting at 7:30 p. m. Tickets are on sale at the door at 50 cents, student or adult, and go into a fund being promoted by Elwood Sports Editor Gene Conard to build a recreation area that will include improving the baseball diamond and planting grass in a picnic area in that community. The program was started by the American Legion of th.-.t community and is now a civic undertaking. In addition to "This is basketball", the two hour program of athletic movies will show the Elwood-Tipton basketball game of last season and several football films including the one in which the Panthers handed Peru its only defeat in the CIC this year. Box office to the theatre will open at 7 p. m. Around the CIC Monday's edition of the Peru Tribune lists this season's Tiger basketball varsity, and we can see coach Bob Biddle different from most other Indiana hardwood mentors when it comes to using the tape measure on their boys. Dick Barr, when he measures 'em, lists them with if anything, an edge in |the heights, Mike Baker, for example, was listed at 6'7", but even with shoes Mike stood a shade under that, and uigley, the tallest Blue Devil in uniform this season,'is just zz close to 6'4Vi" as he is to the listed G'C". But up at Peru, big M i k e Eikenberry, whom we've been told for a year was between 6'5" and 6'6", and who was introduced to Eastern Carolina College baketball coach Wendell Carr at this summer's Indiana Kentucky All Star game as 6'6" is now only 6'4". That gives us cause to wonder what the heights of 6'0' Gayle Bbmar, 6'2" Ken Day 6'2" Jerry Yentes and 6'0 Rick Inniger would be if we were to measure them. Peru Loaded Incidentally, for those who think Barr might be in trouble next season.when he graduates 11 of his 12-man varsity, Biddie lists a 13-man squad, ten of whom are also seniors. He lost only' one boy from last years team, 5'7"'Jeff Henry, and acquired in that boy's place both Bomar an all-state football transfer from Kentucky, and Inniger, reportedly a real basketball whiz who was a starter last season for Berne, Indiana Yowsuh Our advice is not to sell Peru short this season when looking around for basketball toughies. And for those who have forgotten, Eikenberry pumped in 37 points against Tipton last season. In other high scoring efforts, he tallied 27 against Mishawaka, 23 against Hartford City, 70 in a two game holiday tourney at Columbia City and 28 against Indianapolis Tech. His only game out of double figures was 8 points against Kokomo after missing a game because of illness. Mike is certain to be one of the contenders for scoring honors this-season and we'll be watching the point column closely when Peru opens against Marion. Saturday night. ' One Of Our Own Another boy we'll be even more interested in this season from the scoring point of view is our own Donnie Curnutt. With Dick Mcintosh averaging 28.7- points per game last year, and-Harvey Harmon hitting 16.6 there weren't too many shots left for the rest of the team, considering that Danny Crouch came up with games of 10 against Wabash, 16 in the holiday tourney against Lebanon, 15 against Jackson Central, 12 against; Rochester, 16 against Hartford City, 12 against Westfield, and Bill Moore also had several double-figure games.. Nevertheless, Curnutt averaged 16.7, per game himself. With both Mcintosh and Harmon departed for college ball, Tipton will be needing points in profusion to make up for the 45.2 per game which, that pair accounted for,, and a large burden of that scoring will fall square on the shoulders of Curnutt. T.H.S. Records ' Bonnie's got a long, long way to go to eclipse the career scoring record established, last j season by Mcintosh. No. 7 tallied 628 points his senior year for a one-season record, 39 points in the game for a one- game record and 1,195 points for an all-time T.H.S. record. The Splendid Splinter came up with 369 in 22 games last year and had 54 points in a part-time role as a sophomore, so that leaves him 772 points short of Mac's record,' and that is far too high a goal to set for any youngster. We would not, however, take any bets he doesn't .' get it, and certainly we wouldn't bet that he doesn't establish a new one season mark. Teamwork The big key to Tipton's success, however, is teamwork. Coach Dick Barr had a beautiful defense working last season, despite the fact that Tipton was one of the highest scoring teams in 'the state and led the Central Indiana Conference in scoring figures. It was teamwork, plain and simple, which created the tough defense and the high scoring. And the Blue Devils will need that teamwork more than ever this year. We have an idea who will be in the five starting slots Friday night when Tipton travels to Clinton .Central, although coach Barr won't list anything official before Thursday, but we know it will be five boys who can work together and who don't care who gets the points as long as the points are going to the credit of Tipton on that scoreboard. We look for the scoring of several boys to accelerate considerably from last season. If it doesn't, the Blue Devils will be hurting for it takes more than one boy to score or the opposition will be ganging up on that one and the whole team will suffer. Judging by Barr-coached teams of the post, however, we'd say it is goii.S to take a high scoring team io halt the Blue.Devils. (HIIS BOWL POSSIBILITIES EL PASO, Tex.

Jefferson OS 5-4780 By CURT BLOCK UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — The amazing New York Mets are expected to climax nearly a month of speculation today by announcing that Yogi' Berra has signed as a player-coach in one of baseball's most amazing switches. Yogi's switch from a grey flannel business suit as office consultant and scout on the American League pennant winning New York Yankees to a white flannel baseball uniform as a player-coach for the National League cellar dwellers is not going to take anybody by surprise, however. It's no secret that Met Manager Casey Stengel and President George Weiss have been trying to lure Yogi away from his desk position with the Yankees from almost the moment he was unexpectedly fired as manager last month. It's also no secret that Berra is only too willing to get "a- chance to be back on the^ field' again under former Yankee Manager Stengel. The three-time most valuable player in the American League, who was the Yanks' prize catcher under Stengel, was reportedly offered a $35,000 contract for signing with the Mets. In addition, the Yankees will pay him one year's salary of $25,000 even though he leaves them. . Yankee Vice President Ralph Houk explained, "We gave Yogi a two-year contract and told him if he could do better, he was free to do so. No matter what he did—even if he signed with another club—we told him we'd pay him a full year's salary." The Yankees gave Berra the office position after unexpectedly firing him as manager, of a club that came within one game of being the world champions of baseball in his first-year at the helm. The change meant he -would have been out of uniform for the first season since 1945. A similar fate befell Stengel when he was fired as Yankee manager in 1960 after losing the World Series to the Pittsburgh •Pirates. He. then accepted the seemingly futile task of making a winner out of the Mets when they were created in 1962. >£et'A 0o • 9 BV BOB BSEVrSTEE Outdoor Editor, r J . 2Iireury OulbacrdM WHO'S ALL THROUGH? "Who says fishing's finished for the year? There's hardly a. spot in the country where a man can't find a place to wet a line—if he boasts a strong love for the outdoors and a sturdy constitution. With a little ingenuity and a fair measure of fortitude anyone can extend his fishing pleasures through the coming winter months,, say the Mercury outboard folks. " In most areas, fish are willing, but fishermen reluctant — a situation quite' reversed from that existing during the traditional warm weather fishing season. But the comparatively few anglers (actually hundreds of thousands) who do brave the elements reap a harvest. And the fishing fun's exceeded only by the warm companionship which prevails among winter bait dunkers. From the frozen lakes of the north to balmy: southern waters where ou'tboards work year around, there's some brand of winter fishing available. Each, has its own peculiarities., techniques and equipment, depending on weather conditions. They range from elaborate heated shanties ar.d hand lines to a mere jacket and regular casting gear. The midlands o f America have their share of cold weather, but not enough to provide a frozen platform or properly condition inhabitants to the ice fishing enjoyed farther north. So heated fishing docks, located over brush piles where- fish congregate, are the rage. These floating piscatorial palaces accommodate a large group of fishermen".and offer all the comforts of home. With such innovations, fishing is no longer seasonal. For all with the desire, fishing thrills" are available 12 month3 of the year. • MOYER PRESENT SOUTH BEND, Ind.
