ENTERED AS SECOND~CLASS MATTER OCTOBER 9, 1895 AT POST OFFICE AT TIPTON. INDIANA VOLUME 69, NUMBER 42 TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 19M .7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK Blue Devils Open Season with Win Against Bulldogs Tipton fans who braved the weather and highways for the Blue Devil opener 'last night, returned home reassured as to the Satan firepower, after an 80-72 victory over Clinton Central, but convinced coach Dick Barr is going to have to work his charges hard on defense before they're ready to tackle some of the state's stronger hardwood powers. Donnie Curnutt, whose high game last season was 29 points in Tipton's 75-72 vctory over Huntington, opened with the awesome shooting mid Indiana fans have been expecting of him by hitting 13 of 23 field goals and seven of seven at, the charity lane for a 33-point start on the 1964-65 season.-Coach Barr's other two returned starters lived up to their coach's predictions by also hitting in double figures. Dan Crouch connecting on five on nine shots from the floor and five of ten at the foul line for 15 points while Bill Moore hit six of 11 field goal attempts and added one point in two trips to the foul lane. Close At Start The Devils' and Bulldogs battled on practically even terms through a first quarter which ended with Tipton in front 20-18, using a half court or zone press which failed to bother coach Ray Craft's boys. 'Frequently one of the Tipton defensemen would!lose '".is man and the Bulldogs would catch one of their forwards all alone' under the basket for two pointers that kept C'inton Central in contention. In the second period coach Barr shifted his men to a man- to-man defense in the opposition 's backcourt and the press shook up the Bulldogs into errors that saw Tipton shoot into a 37-28 lead, holding the home towners to just ten points in that quarter. Jt broke into a wide open scoi ing spree in the second half when Tipton again outscored Clinton Central 24-21 to enter the final quarter .ahead by 61-49. The Tipton lead,, which ranged •from -10-14 points most of the game, was narrowed to eight points at the finish but the Bulldogs, while scrapping all the •way, never appeared to. have what it took for an upset. Hot Shooter Craig Stowers, ° a 5'11" forward did a great job for the losers, weaving in and outcourt and constantly losing his de- fenseman to notch up 31 points for the losers. Tipton did its best job on the backboards, controlling that phase of the game,' but carelessness' on ; defense kept the Satans several times from breaking the game wide open just when they appeared on the verge of doing so . . . that and the fact in traditional fashion, the Bulldogs hung on every step of the way. Percentagewise, the Satans hit a .492 clip, dropping through 30 of 61 field goal attempts. Scorebook Wrong One mixup by officials on the scoring bench got Tipton into double foul trouble when at half time, Lex Boyd had three personals and Bill Moore only one. This was the situation on five score books. On the official book however, and that is the only one that counted, it •was "Boyd and Moore each with two personals. Both boys eventually fouled out, but it was Boyd going to the • bench with six personals while iMoore was retired on only four. Coach Barr substituted freely last night, with Dave Quigley doing a real nice job in relief of Boyd who probably needs a game or two to get the football out of his system but is a real man under the boards, while Gary SCeyers, who spelled Keith Smith, failed to.hit any or his fto field goal attempts but sank'six points in as many tries from the free throw line.-Jim Harmon made good on one of two field goal tries. In all, eight of the ten players seeing action got into the scoring column and the two.who failed to 'score, Jim.' Hannaft and Jerr/ Carter, con* tented themselves wiQi "defensive play, not taking "a 'shot Snowfall Halts Defending Champ Lafayette Jeff i By BOB GATELY United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — Defending Indiana high school basketball champion Lafayette will open its season tonight at home against Attica, weather permitting. Winter weather cut into Friday night's first big schedule of the new season and there were several postponements in the northern and central sections of the state, largely because of road conditions which made it impossible for teams to get to their/games. And some of the worst road conditions in the state were reported early today 'in the Lafayette area. But the weather didn't keep perennial powers as Kokomo, Columbus and Tipton from getting their seasons rolling Friday. Columbus, which made the state tourney finals last March, opened with a 73-68 victory over North Vernon to run its regular season winning -streak to 43 straight games. Tipton found at least part of the answer to the loss of last year's stars, Dick Mcintosh and Harvey Harmon, in Don Curnutt who dumped in 33 points for an 80-72 win over Clinton Central. Craig Stowers scored 31 for the losers. Kokomo opened with an easy 79-52 victory over Sheridan while Madison, which 1 opened earlier, dumped Connersville, 83-64, behind the 33-^oint performance of Howard Humes. His brother, Willie, had 18. South Bend St. Joseph's, this year's mythical state football champions,, got off to a good start on the • basketball season with a 61-53 victory over city foe Adams. A couple of schools which posted perfect football records found things a little different with the change in games. Warsaw and Bloming- ton both lost their openers. •Pierceton downed Warsaw, 65-60, and Shelbyville beat Bloomington, 57-47. In one of the night's top individual performances, Rick Mount scored 39 points to lead Lebanon over -Crawfordsville, 85-67. That brought:him within just 17 points of the Lebanon career scoring record of 1,094 points set by his father, Pete Mjunt, who wound up his career in 1943. Bluff ton overcame a 31-point performance by Steve McCollum to down Hartford City, 72-69. Bluffton trailed, 38-30, at halftime but pulled ahead in the third quarter. Don Thatcher scored 31 points to lead Areola over Monroeville, 55-54, and Greg Walts scored 30 in Georgetown's 65-63 win over Silver Creek.

Allan L. Jones, 17, 124 Maple Street, was drving along a Clinton County road when he found another motorist in a ditch. He turned his car around in' order to come back to assist and as he did the wind blew it sideways. The car was then struck in that position by Patrick T. Beaver, 16, 222 E. Walnut Street. The accident occurred one-half mile west of the county line near the' Audrey Cunningham 'farm, R. R. 5, Frankfort. Tipton County Sheriff Verl Grimme, who investigated the accident said damage to Jones' ' car was around $200 but that Beaver's was possibly a total loss.

Fair and colder tonight. by GEORGE CLINE When asked recently if it was I who had brought the rain that broke the drought, I had, regretfully, to say no. I couldn't get any one of the/'mariy political .candidates to promise rain, so .1 cooked up my own scheme. On Friday I tore the old shingle roof off the south side of the wood shed to put on a new one. It has been my experience that when you take a roof off a building,. .it is sure to. rain, and this factor working with the Friday the 13th hoodoo, I thought, would bring a downpour and put me in good with all the people of Tipton County. It didn't work,-but yet I may, claim some glory from the •situation.'' I didn't get all the hew shingles on the roof until Saturday, and I feel sure that it really wanted to rain that day, but because of the dry spell it took two days to prime the pump, with the result that the rain didn't come until Sunday! • On Tuesday we saw a big flock of wild geese flying south over Midwest Gridmen In Todays Headliners By CURT BLOCK UPI Sports Writer The final big Saturday of the, college football season features two time-honored Midwestern squabbles — Notre Dame. vs. Iowa at South Bend, Ind., and Ohio State vs. Michigan at Columbus, Ohio. A few schools conclude the campaign on Thnaksgiving Day, a handful of others wind up the campaign on Thanksgiving Day, a few more stragglers carry into the month of December. •But today is the last big Saturday afternoon for most gridiron fans, and a big one it is. Notre Dame, under new mentor Ara •Parseghian, has , rebounded from . a dismal 2-7 mark last season to a current 8-0. The amazing Armenian rediscovered and molded" talent which had been virtually untapped into an undefeated unit that now stands- on the threshold of a national championship. The Irish are rated 16-point favorites to continue unbeaten against Iowa, which features the passing of Gary Snook and the receiving of Karl Noonan. That duo has helped the Hawks achieve a nuipber two. rating among .the nation's, leading, passing teams. ,'•.,.

" , the west end of Tipton County. There must have been 100 of them—one of the largest flocks that I have ever seen in these parts, and they were all Cana da geese, none of them showing any white. They would fly into a' double V formation, then break and regroup, calling loud ly all the while. Their voices didn't sound just right and I suspect this was because many of them were young geese. Their peculiar behavior and evident restlessness probably meant that they were viewing the many corn fields as they went along and were trying to . make up their minds to stop l 'and eat. .There should be plenty of corn r for them in most any field now. These geese probably spent'the summer in the upper part of Canada, where they could nest and rear their young in peace and quietude. Five large trees died this season in the woods., three of them pin oak, one red. oak and one white ash. The cause of their deaths, so far as I could see, was natural causes and old age, although of course, all trees are subject at times to damage by insects and diseases.' Since I have plenty of lumber, J sold the logs, but two of the trees were so imperfect they were not fit from two to three feet in dia- from two to three feetindia- meter,. and those that were good will make excellent boards and timbers, and since I agreed to get the logs out of the woods < mostly to keep the hauler from tearing down young timber) we will have some good sport "skid-' ding" logs. Some of them will probably be too much for my !Ford tractor to handle and I may have to call for help. There was a time when skidding logs was a big business in Tipton County. The "skids" are the small logs or beams, that are used to slant up against the wagon so that the logs can be rolled on. The logs are rolled with a cant-hook when on the ground, but usually with a chain wrapped around them when they have to be loaded. However, when possible, log hauling was out off until winter when there was a good snow on the ground so that a mudboat could be used. The benches (crossbeams) of a mudboat are so close to the ground that it was very easy to roll;'logs onto them,, and this saves a lot of lifting and tugging. A cant-hook is like a good, stout pole, about four, and one half feet long,with a large iron hook ; attached near one end. A ' log-hook,! is simply* a hook that can be fastened into a log to anchor, one end of a chain thai,, is, wrapped around a log and used to roll it. Log tongs are like ice tongs, only much larger, and, stronger, and they are used to hook onto that end of a log: to,drag it endways when necessary, Jo,,'OuVof the brush and .saplings so that you can load it.All these, and plenty of chain a^re, necessary for hauling logs.

The • unions involved in the settlement were maintenance of way telegraphers, clerks, hotel and restaurant employes and signalmen. The signalmen agreed only to fringe benefits. • Federal mediators said the agreements were significant because-the unions are among 11 non-operating unions which include shopcraft workers. The six shopcraft unions, which have not reached settlement in their talks, have set a strike deadline for 6 a.m." (local .time) Monday which could paralyze the nation's railroad system. J. E. Wolfe, chairman of the National Railway Labor Conference,, said today's settlement followed recommendations of the presidential emergency board laid down on Oct. 20. Calls For Increase The settlement provided for increases of 27 cents an hour, broken down into 9 cent increases over three years i;etro-' active from Jan. 1, 1964. Other provisions are for four weeks vacation after 20 years service, a paid holiday and $2,000 life insurance policies for retired employes. The agreement was reached in mediation sessions conducted by Francis O'Neill, chairman of tj|ie..National Mediation Board. , O'Neill has been meeting with carriers and the shopcraft unions who are at odds over -a wage package similar to the one agreed to today, by fellow brotherhoods. The mediator said shop craft representatives and carriers would continue bargaining in efforts to beat the clock and avert the Monday strike deadline. The talks would be separate but there might be more sessions later in the day, O'Neill said. The shopcraft workers are asking for wage boosts hither than those recommended by the presidential board. Keeping Wertz Informed O'Neill said he wa.s keeping Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz informed as to the progress of the talks.
