Lafayette As Lebanon Wins By BOB GATELY I United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — The Indiana high school basketball season is just really getting started but a few teams already are stamping themselves as contenders for the state title won last March by Lafayette. One of the top threats is Lebanon which ran its winning streak to three games Friday night at the expense of Lafayette, 73-69. It was Lafayette's second loss in its first three games. Rick Mount, a junior who already holds the Lebanon ca.reer scoring record and increases it every game he plays, paced the Tigers with 35 points to bring his total for three games to 110. Huntington v runner-up to Lafayette in the state' finals, is still untested with one victory agains Northfield. The Vikings take on. Berne tonight. Another member of the final four last season, Columbus, ran its regular season winning streak to 44 games Friday night with a 74-60 victory over South Central Conference foe Connersville. The other 1S64 finalist, Evansville ' Rex Mundi, will open tonight against Roekport. Gary Roosevelt's Panthers and Kokomo's Wildcats made, it plain Friday night that their claws are as sharp as ever. Roosevelt downed city foe Froebel, 95-88, before an overflow crowd and gained revenge for FroebeTs upset victory in last season's tourney sectional. Larry Wright paced the Panthers with 26 points. Kokomo, which "will, meet Lafayette next week in a North Central^C onference clash, warmed up Friday night with a 103-58 victory over Rossville. It was the third straight for the Wildcats who built up a 63-24 halftime lead and let the reserves play the entire second half. Always dangerous South Bend Central had its hands full before squeezing out a 56-53 overtime victory over city foe St. Joseph's. The Bears led by 11 points, 3S-25, midway through the third period but St. Joseph's came back to tie it up in the fourth and the regulation game ended in a 49-49 deadlock. A basket by Richard Smith and a free throw by Leon Davis finally put Central ahead to stay with 37 seconds left in the overtime. Three-time state champ Indi- anapc^s Attucks, "down" the last couple of years, also may be on the rebound. The Flying Tigers routed city foe Bre- beuf, 107-35, with Jim Bailey tossing in 23 points. Attucks invades Terre Haute Gerstmeyer tonight. • Jerry Flake scored 34 points to lead unbeaten Washington to an 84-71 victory over Huntingburg in a Southern Conference game.. Neal Carnes hit 32 in New Haven's 83-77 win over Fort Wayne Catholic. Dick Gossett scored 31 points to lead Seymour over South Central Conference foe Bloomington, 80-59; Charles Lewis had 31 as Crown Point downed North Judson, 64-48; and Jeff Trumbull scored 31 in a losing cause-as Knox beat New Carlisle, J38-63. Hammond G-avit's Dave Rose wasn't in that class when it came to scoring. He got only one basket for the night but it was a big one. His jump shot with four seconds left gave Gavit a 62-60 victory over Griffith. Giants Get First Pick In Player Football Draft By CURT BLOCK UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI)—The New York Giants opened the National Football League's player draft today and were expected to grab Illinois' Dick Butkus, Notre Dame's John Huarte or Alabama's Joe Namath in the first round. The Giants, defending Eastern Division champions, earned the right to choose first in the draft because of their last place standing in the league at present. However, the Chicago Bears with three first round picks and the Green Bay 'Packers and San Francisco Forty - Niners with two apiece , were expected to grab much of the best talent available.

Mrs. | Russel McDonald of Pittsburgh. Nature Notes By GEORGE CLINE Getting a turkey for Thanksgiving in ;Tipton County is not the same j as it was 100 years ago. In those days you didn't go to a supermarket or a Euchre party to get your turkey,, you shouldered your muzzle-loader went into the woods and brushy places and shot a gobbler. My father said that to the best of his knowledge he shot the last wild turkey that was killed in Tipton County, and this was in the southwest part of Praifie Township, jprobably about 1875. And when * wild ones could not be had for food, the settlers raised their own turkeys and the ones they ihad were the bronze kind very | much like the wild turkeys only larger. Some of these domestic turkeys could fly nearly | like wild ones, too. When I was a kid, we not only had turkeys and chickens, but geese, ducks and guineas as well, and so did most other farmers. All I of these except the ducks and j geese, roosted in the trees in-both summer and winter. In those days a farmer didn't want such fowl as couldn't pretty well take care of themselves. ! One way; to get wild turkeys was to shoot them from'the roost at night, or as they came in to roost at dusk or when they left about daylight. But,my father could call them, as could most oldtimers. jl still have his turkey call, which he had made from the hollow wing bone of a wild turkey that he had killed in Irish Favored by 12 Over Southern Cal. By FRED McMANE The college football season ends today for the nation's grid squads, but for Notre Dame, Navy and Army the entire season rests on this afternoon's games. The Irish are out to clinch the national championship against South em California while the Middies and Cadets tangle in their traditional inter- service clash at Philadelphia. Only a handful of other games are on tap this afternoon as the curtain falls on the 1964 campaign. Georgia meets Georgia Tech, Florida takes on Miami, Duke plays Tulane, Oklahoma faces Oklahoma State, Texas Christian meets Southern Methodist, Tennessee plays Vanderbilt and Boston College plays Holy Cross in other traditional battles; . Lr<rge Crowd Expected A crowd of 80,000 is expected to watch Notre Dame and Southern Cal in action at Los Angeles, 'and there are (big prizes at stake. The Irish are the nation's No. 1 team and a victory" oyer the Trojans will give them both the national title and their first perfect season since -1949. A victory for the Trojans, however, would probably get them a bid to the Rose Bowl. The choice 1 in this one, though", is Notre Dame by 12 points. More than 100,000 fans will bs' on hand at Philadelphia's John F. Kennedy Stadium to witness the Army-Navy game and both ] squads know that "there is no substitute for victory" in this: one. It has been a dismal season for both teams, but the winner of today's, contest will have had a successful campaign. | ., Navy has won the last five games of this series and is a seven point favorite to make it six in a row. Army Leads Series This will | be the 65th meeting between the two teams. Army has won 30, Navy 29 and there have been Ifive ties. Several other games today also have long histories. Boston College and Holy Cross will be meeting for the 61st time and the Eagles| are 13 point favorites to top the Crusaders. Georgia is a one-point favorite over Georgia Tech in the 59th meeting between the two teams while Tennessee is sH over Vanderbilt (and Oklahoma is 10 over Oklahoma State in other contests in jwhich the teams are meeting for the 59th time. • In the other major games, Florida is an eight-point choice over Miami, Duke is six over Tulane and; Texas Christian and SMU are even money. Tonight, ] Arizona State will meet Arizona and New Mexico will take on Kansas State. Arizona State] Arizona and. New, Mexico all have hopes of a Sun Bowl berthi Prairie. To call with it you sucked on one end in a certain way so as to imitate the "cu -ouk, cu-ouk" of the turkey hen. Last week I ran across a hedge-apple (Osage orange) tree in a woods in the west end of the county, where I hadn't known there were any. Around 1900 the Osage orange was introduced to tins area 5nd recommended for hedge-fence and for posts. They do make excellent. posts when of the proper size, but they never were a success as a fence. In.! the first place they spread out' and take up valuable land, and then they soon grow large enough that with no sticky brush near the ground, they will not turn stock unless planted side by sides by the hundreds. Many years ago we used to laugh aV a fellow who had decided that his putting out a half mile of hedge fence along the road had been a mistake and that he should kill it out. This proved to 'be more difficult than he had bargained for because nothing seems to discourage its growth. At one time he got a man with a big steam engine and heavy chains, to pull up the trees by the roots, and this set them back —but that was 50 years ago, and when I passed there the other day there were a few Osage orange sprouts growing where the hedge fence had been. The tree got its name from the fact that its fruit is the size of oranges, but they are green in color and lock like they had warts all over them. At the covered bridge festival in Rockville, Indiana recently, they had these on sale at 5 and 10 cents, one sign saying that they would keep mice and bugs away. fellow w a s honestTuT public auctions held at 15 But one enough to say that he didn't know about that, but \he did •know that if one were burned in the fireplace it would send off colored rays of light of various hues so as to be very beautiful. A few years ago we had an old hedge-apple post in the pole pile and when we put the buzz saw to it, the sparks flew. When they get hard and dry it is almost impossible to drive a staple (steeple) in one of them. And I heard a man griping about mul- tiflora rose not long ago. He said that he had never put out any of it, but had sprouts of it at various places on his farm, the seeds having been carried by birds. Like hedge-apple, it has sharp stickers on it. Tuesday night of last week a young hoot owl came to a tree in our yard in Tipton and put on a concert. He must have been a young one for his voice did not have the depth and reso- nence that is common among these big owls. Perhaps his parents hadn't taught him to read music and he was playing by ear! Young birds have to learn to sing the family song and their voices change in tone as they grow up. They learn by imitating their parents. And not long after the big fellow left, a screech owl came and sang a tune that was much higher pitched and reminded me of the Beatles. The reason owls were so active on that night was be' cause there was a- snow on the ground -which"'made ' for•• good (CenHmwd-on pas* *) .'. December 5 Is Suggested For Yule Packages "Please pack parcels solidly,' was "the plea of Postmaster Ralph Watson. The head of the Tipton Post Office also reminded patrons that use of free "local" and "out of-town" separation 'bands will help move the mails faster. The bands are available at the post office or from most lettur carriers December 5 is the suggested deadline for mailing outW-town packages. "Don't worry about the parcels being delivered too early, just mark 'Don't Open Until Christmas' on the front," Watson said. A tightly stuffed package, with nothing rattling around inside, will have less chance of being damaged in transit, he noted. • "When packing a gift, remember the package you send may be shipped on' the bottom of a mail sack and there may be heavier packages on top. Amor, the relatively few packages that are damaged in transit, improper packaging is the greatest factor." . the postmaster cautioned. Just to be on the safe side he suggests all packages be in sured. He noted that poor packaging and addresses which .are either incorrect or not legible are re sponsible for the non-delivery of about half a million parcels each year. If the return address is incorrect or" illegible and the package cannot be returned, it will be saved for 90 days. If un claimed, the parcel is usually lost to the sender or intended recipient. Such parcels wind up U.S. Launches Camera To inspect Mars By AL ROSSITER JR. , United Press International CAPE KENNEDY (UPI)— The United States today launched a Mariner-4 camera prcbe on the first leg of a 7'/= month voyage to inspect Mars and its puzzling "canals." The spacecraft, with its battery of electronic eyes and sensors, is America's last hope to explore the planet before 1935. Its predecessor failed on an identical picture-taking mission 23 days ago. Besides producing, the first closeup pictures of Mars, the pioneering probe is expected to make studies vital to U.S. plans to land robots in 1969 on the planet, which scientists feel is the most likely to harbor life. •Mariner-4, launched at 9:22 a.m. EST after a flawless countdown was first aimed toward an earth orbit and when its Agena upper stage coasts into position 32 minute later over the Indian Ocean, it will act as a flying.launch platform to rocket Mariner on its curving, 325-million mile course-to Mars. If all goes well, the probe will swoop within 7,000 to 10,000 miles of Mars next July 14. Its camera will peer through the thin Martian atmosphere to snap 22 pictures ,while its scientific instruments try to unlock some of the secrets of the planet. The windmill shaped probe, wearing . a new metal nose cover in place of the fi'oreglass shroud {hat ruined the Mariner •3. launched Nov. 5, raced into (he sky atop an Atlas - Agena rocket. The shot had been postponed from Friday .because of radio trouble. About 4 minutes after the Atlas booster climbed into the partly cloudy sky on a bright column of flame, a space agen- .

All parcels should be addressed on only one side and should also have the address written on the inside of the package in case the exterior wrapping comes off 'Watson emphasized that ZIP Coding the addresses on parcels and letters helps insure against loss due to improper addressing. Since each area of the country has an individual ZIP Code, there is little chance of a piece of mail destined for one city being directed to a city which may have a similar name. For example, there are at least 26 possible areas around the coun ; try which would have Spring field in the address. Use of the proper ZIP Code would send the mail to the right post office, • "We are asking everyone to be especially cooperative this holiday season. During the peak of the 'rush' we expect that seven billion pieces of mail will flow through the system and it looks as if 12 billion pieces will be delivered during the entire month of December. That's quite a bit of mail," the postmaster concluded. NOISY MUFFLER Police- arrested Robert E.

By NICHOLAS DANILOFF United Press International MOSCOW (UPI) — Howling, rock-throwing Russians and Africans stormed the American, British and Belgian embassies today and broke into the Congo Embassy. Russian mounted police charges dispersed the mobs. Ths screaming rioters — protesting this week's U.S.-Bclgian Congo rescue operation — smashed windows and stormed the gates of the American and Belgian embassies, broke briefly into the Congo Embassy and then stormed toward the British Embassy across the.

Tass Touches Lightly Tass, the Soviet News Agency, reported briefly that "fot- eign students approached t h e building of the U.S. Embassy." It called the protest a "spontaneous demonstration."
