PAQE4 THE TIPTON DAILY.TRIBUNE Wednesday,. Nov. 18,1964 Tipton, Peru Split Games In Tuesday Opener Tipton Junior High split a pair of basketball games with Peru in their season opener last night at the junior high gym, the 8th graders losing out by one point in the final period, 39-38 after leading all the way, and the s eventh graders winning 40-23 after a first quarter 8-8 tie. > A" little guard: who got hot with 14 points in the second half, 10 of them in t h e last quarter, was too much, for coach Jerry Clossin's 8lh graders, who nevertheless' put up a good scrap before bowing in the night's second game. Sahald- achwy, who tallied only three points in the first quarter and none in T the second wound up with scoring honors for both teams on a 17-point night for the visitors. The Tipton Imps played fine hall in thefirst quarter, taking a 13-9 lead with Fike and Balser getting two buckets apiece, Blackford and Floyd each one and Snipes adding throw. At halftime they had increased their margin to seven points as Snipes added two more buckets and Balser one while Peru was held to three "points. The visitors closed the gap to f o u r points again in the third period, outscoring Tipton 13-11 as Snipes, who was high for Tipton added two more baskets, Fike, Tunmer and Balser each added one and Blackford made good on one of three at the foul line. The final quarter--went to Peru 14-8 with Snipes netting two more field goals, while Balser and Fike each got a bucket and a free throw. Missed Free Ones It .vas the free throw line which hurt Tipton as they outscored Peru in field goals 18-15 but sank only two of 10 at the foul line while Peru netted nine free throws in 17 tries. In the seventh grade game Zimmerman, Legg and Day sank first period baskets and Zimmerman added t w o free throws in that 8-8 first quarter. After that Tipton sprinted into a 22-14 lead at halftime as Elston hit three field goals, An- ders6n and Zimmerman each made a fielder and a f r e e throw and Legg hit another field goal. In the third quarter Tipton outscored Peru 8-3 as Legg added two more field goals and Zimmerman and Anderson (Continued on Page 6) - SPORTS E (Reg. U.S. Pah Off.) By MILTON R1CHMAN UP I Sports Writer WEST POINT, (UPI) — It's quiet up here, high above the Hudson river, so quiet you can hear the leaves fall. , First thing you notice about the leaves is that they already have turned dark brown. Obviously noticeable, too, at the U.S. Military Academy are the wheels turning day and night on the field where Army's football team practices and in the athletic office. And before he finally turns in for the night, every member of the Cadet corps says the same two words: "Beat Navy" is Nov. 28. The site is Philadelphia. Each Cadet, from the lowest plebe on up, knows the objective as well as he knows his own name. Preparing For One Year "We've been preparing for Navy since last Dec. 8," said Army cdach Paul Dietzel, completely aware the last Army- Navy game was played last Dec. 7. "Let's not kid ourselves. Both teams' seasons hinge on this game. We've won three games -and lost six. They're three, five and one. "Whichever team wins this game will have'had a successful season," Dietzel added. "Whichever team loses will have had a dreadful year." Since coming from Louisiana State to take over as Army's head coach, the youthful, blond Dietzel has watched the Middies beat his Cadets twice. Navy walloped Army, 34-14, in 1962, Dietzel's first year at the helm, and hung on for a 21-15 victory last year. The Cadets had the ball on the Middies' two - yard line but didn't have time for one more play a year ago. i. Learned A Lot "We've learned a great deal from ithose two games," said Dietzel. . "In that first game, I didn't really know how good (Roger) Staubach was. He was sensational against us. Last year's game was a great battle and we found we could keep up with Navy. "Now begins the great guessing game. What will we try against them? What will they try against us?" Dietzel smiled at the prospect, like a chess master who (Continued on page 6) All Conference First Team is shown here with Tipton's Bill Moore, far right, being congratulated by president of the CICi Principal Harold Johnson of Huntington.

(TRIBUNE Photo-Engraving) Wichita May Be Top Midwest Net Power EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in a series of dispatches sizing up the nation's college basketball teams. Luther Says: "U-2 CAN BE A COUPON CLIPPER AT FALVEYS" By BILL OSTHOFF United Press international KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UPI)— Much of the wealth of talent in the basketball - rich Midlands may belong to a pair of rookie coaches this season. Gary Thompson of Wichita and Ted Owens of Kansas represent the- two pre-season favorites in the Missouri Valley and Big Eight conferences. Both Thompson and Owens, ! however, have long rough schedules ahead. In the 'Midlands, known as the Badlands of basketball, four or five teams usually shoot it out for top honors. Thompson expects the St. Louis Billikens to give his club a run for the Missouri Valley crown and Kansas can expect some tough competition from Kansas State, Oklahoma State and Colorado in the scramble for the Big Eight marbles. Decision In March The outcome will be decided in March when .the two league champions are part of the lineup in the NCAA's Midwest regional tournament. Wichita has high hopes of matching their 23-6 record of a year ago when they open the season with a veteran team- nine of 13 lettermen returning. Thompson, who replaced Ralph Miller last spring, has the four top scorers back — including everybody's All-America, G-fopt-7 Dave Stallworth. , The outlook for St. Louis also is bright, with four top flight cagers back for the coming campaign. Rich Naes, the Bills' top point producer and voted the team's most valuable player a year ago, returns with jumping-jack rebounder Rich Parks. Possible Darkhorses Cincinnati, a team which held a six-year dominance on the league prior to last season, along with Drake may be the darkhorses. , In the Big Eight, Owens inherited 11 returning lettermen, including four starters, from a team which finished third last season with an 8-6 conference record and 13-12 for the season under Dick Harp. The Jayhawkers have the depth and experience to furnish their -vbest effort in five'years for the Big Eight title. Defending champion Kansas State should also be in the running along with Oklahoma State and Colorado. ARRIVES FOR FIGHT ROME (UPI)—Former world middleweight champion Sugar Ray Robinson arrived by airplane from. Nice today to train for a bout with Fabio Bettini next week. The 10-round Robinson-Bettini fight is scheduled for the Place of Sports, Nov. 27. COLEMAN GETS HONOR ' MONTREAL (UPI) —Fullback Lovell Coleman of the Calgary Stampeders who led ball carriers with 1,629 yards rushing last season, was named player of the year in the Canadian Football League today. Coleman is a 26-year-old former star for Western Michigan. Eagles Defeat Wolves 81-76 Coach Bill Britton's Jackson .Central Eagles successfully opened their Hamilton county competition last night, coming from behind to knot the count at 72-72 in regulation time and then pull out an 81-76 victory in the first overtime period against Walnut Grove's Wolves. The Eagles trailed at all but the final stop, behind by 11 points at the halftime inter- mision but getting hack in contention in a red hot third qaur- ter when they tallied 29 points. Coach Britton had eight boys sharing in the scoring and three got into double figures. Roudebush and Leveridge paced the Wolves through their early leads and wound up with 21 and 18 points respectively for Walnut Grove but Schildmier had 25 and McConnell 20 for the victors with Beck ariing 11 more. The Eagles trailed by one field goal but outscored the Wolves 27-20 at the foul line, with each team being assessed 30 personals.'Russell fouled out for coach Britton's squad while Walnut Grove lost five players, via the whistle, Leveridge..

Back Your; Opinion This column is always open to any legitimate "gripe" from readers . . . we've expressed a few of our own and we've, got our name at the top of this column to let everyone know who's doing the talking. Occasionally we receive in the mail letters from readers who more or less dare us to print their opinion but don't have the courage to sign their names. Anyone who believes strongly -enough in something to voice his opinion should back up that opinion .with his signature. Weill yjithhold signatures on request, but we cannot and will not publish letters which are unsigned. In today's mail we got two of these. One we can throughly sympathize, with. It is a letter from Kempton stating that there is a broken hearted youngster out there who gave it everything he had but was cut from the squad remaining on the T.H. S. varsity. • The other letter sounds to us like a little "sour grapes" from a fan who was disgruntled over the handling of season tickets last Friday. Since "they were unsigned we can't print them but' we will attempt to answer both. Tough Everywhere As to the first, a couple of years ago, five different high schools consolidated into Clinton Central and in the first year of the consolidation C-C picked up a total of'25 boys who had won their letters the previous year Walnut Grove Leveridge Flanders House Wolfred Bryant Stern Brown Blackford Roudebush TOTALS 8 18 0 4 5 7 10 2 6 .3 21 28 2.0 76 Score by quarters: Jackson Central 12- 8-29-23-9-81 Walnut Grove ' 14-17-22-19-4-76 BOWLING at one or another of those five schools. Pity the job of that coach who had,, by I.H.S.A.A. requirements, to cut 13 of those previous year's letter winners from his team. . Some cuts come easy for a coach. We haven't met a coach yet, however, who enjoys making those final cuts when he knows he's lopping off the squad a boy who has all the desire in the world and also has some ability. When Barr cut his last four boys from the team we know it was one of the hardest things he had to do. They had survived half a dozen other cuts and wouldn't have been in the final 16 unless he thought they had some ability. There were three Tipton boys who also had to take that cut and we know that they and their families were just as heart broken over it as the boy about whom the letter was written. Barr had more than once since the first of October, praised this particular youngster to us in private conversa tions at his home. The final basis for Barr's cut was just exactly as he put it, given five or six, with, whom he had to make a choice; he went with the boys who, everything else about equal, "had the bodies". Contact Sport ' Tipton plays a "rough schedule" and meets a lot of boys who scale from 180 to 220 pounds. Basketball is a contact sport and there was no other consideration involved except the decision to go with the boys whose bodies were best con withstand that contact. It was a difficult decision for Barr to arrive at but he DID have to cut four boys. He told us afterward that a lot of other teams would have been glad to get any one of the four. Perhaps any other-year he himself would have been mighty glad to have them. We know how the player. feels and we know how the letter writer feels. The only consolation we can offer is the hope that this year's team will prove to be one of the best in the state, and the four boys who'were cut will then at least have the knowledge that it took one of the state's greatest groups of boys to beat them out. • Good Riddance The. other letter is from one who says, and we quote, "Adults wanting to see GOOD basketball can get a much better bargain by buying a season ticket fc>r Butler's' home games at $6.00 for 13 games." All we can say there is that if he or she would rather see Butler than watch these hometown kids whom we've watched from little kids, then for our part he or she is welcome and these kids will be better off without that kind of support. Sure, the ticket situation left much to be desired, from all re- (Continued from page 6) T-V DOC SALES and 543 S. MAIN OS 5-2250 Portables for Christmas • 19" PORTABLE e . . _..
