PAGE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Monday, Nov. 30,1964 p h Sponsors Name Bowl Opponents By United Press International A college football season can't be written off as a success or failure until the last game is over, and sometimes not even then. The finale meant everything to Army and Notre Dame, but Southern California, Oregon State and Alabama didn't know how to raise their success even . after the final whistle had blown on their own last games. Army's 11-8 upset victory over Navy was more than enough to let the Cadets call a 4-6 season successful. Notre Dame, on the other hand, isn't likely to be satisfied with a 9-1 mark after blowing the national championship in a startling 20-17 loss to Southern California. Oregon State and Southern Cal, however, both had to wait until after the Rose Bowl Committee met to name the Pacific representative to the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day to measure their accomplishments. Trojans Are Snubbed Unfortunately for the Trojans, the committee just didn't rate the whole season on the defeat of Notre Dame. Although both the Beavers and Trojans had identical 3-1 conference standings, Qregon State got the bid to meet Michigan at Pasadena Georgia and Oklahoma, i pair of bowl-bound teams, wrapped up their regular seasons with victories over arch rivals. The Bulldogs downed Georgia Tech, 7-0, for a 6-3-1 record and Sun Bowl bid. Oklahoma already going to the Gator Bowl, put on a last-quarter scoring spree to defeat f Oklahoma State. In the big Notre Dame downfall, Craig Fertig passed for two touchdowns and Hike Garrett ran for one to overcome a 17-0 half time deficit. Take Early Lead The Cadets rolled to an early 8-0 lead by tackling Roger Staubach for a safety and on a touchdown pass from Rollie Stichweh to John Seymour. But Barry Nickerson had to kick a last-period field goal for the first Cadet victory over Navy in the last six meetings. Mississippi meets arch-rival Mississippi State and LSU faces Florida- this weekend to conclude the 1964 regular season. The bowl outlook: Rose — Michigan and Oregon State. Orange — Alabama and Texas. Sugar — LSU and Syracuse. Gator — Florida State and Oklahoma. Cotton — Arkansas and Nebraska. Sun — Texas Tech and Georgia. Liberty — West Virginia and Utah. . Bluebonnet — Mississippi and Texas. TO SIGN CONTRACT NEW" YORK (UPI) —Floyd Patterson, a former champion, and George Chuvalo of Canada, Hawks Need Injured Petti! By United Press International The St. Louis Hawks apparently will need injured veteran Bob Pettit back in the lineup to keep close to the hot-playing Los Angeles Lakers. The Hawks have slipped to three games behind first-place Los Angeles in the Western Division race of the National Basketball Association. The Philadelphia 76ers nipped St. Louis 97-94 Sunday night while the Lakers breezed past the Baltimore Bullets 126-110. Pettit started his 11th NBA season with a 24.5 point scoring average per game, but the balding star has missed the last five Hawk contests because of a muscle injury. St. Louis lost three of those five games. The Hawks say there is a good chance Pettit will play Wednesday night against Los Angeles. In the only other game Sunday night, the Cincinnati Royals moved to 3V4 games behind Eastern Division-leading Boston with an easy 105-95 win over the rookie-studded New York Knickerbockers. The Royals ran away jvith the game in the third period, taking an 88-63 lead into the final period. Oscar Robertson and Adrian Smith shared Royal scoring honors *with 20 points apiece and teammate Jerry Lucas led rebounders with 21. Willis Reed, New York's leading scorer, was held to five points by big center Wayne Embn'. Knick subs Bob Boozer and Art Heyman paced their team's scoring with 13 each. In a see-saw game before 8,381 fans at St. Louis, Philadelphia won when John Kerr broke 93-S3 tie with 95 seconds remaining by scoring a two-pointer. Len Wilkens — who had 28 points for the night — then hit on a free'throw for St. Louis, but Paul Newmann clinched the 76er win with a final field goal. The Lakers had two of their best middle periods of the season, . scoring 36 points in the second- period and 39 in the third period against Baltimore. Jerry West paced the Lakers again with 30 points. National Basketball Association By United Press International Eastern Division W. L.

Jefferson OS 5-4780 AFL, NFL (n Dollar Battle For Grid Stars By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer Illinois linebacker Dick Butkus and Baylor flanker Larry Elkins became the central figures today in the battle of dollars between. the National and American Football leagues. Twenty-four hours after the rival pro leagues conducted their drafts in neighboring New York hotels, the NFL was able to announce the signing of nine stars while the AFL had seven of the glamorous college aces in its fold. But the dickering in high financial circles was only beginning and already big struggles ere shaping up between the Chicago Bears and the Denver Broncos for the 245-pound Butkus and between the Green Bay Packers and the Houston Oilers for Elkins. Butkus, regarded by some ex perts as the No. 1 college player of 1964, was the No. 1 draft choice of both the Bears and the Broncos while Elkins, who set several pass receiving records for Baylor, was chosen first by both the Packers and Ithe Oilers. Makes Outstanding Offer Butkus is reported leaning toward the Bears of the NFL, but Denver General Manager Cal Kunz says he has made the big fellow "an offer he can't possibly refuse." The Broncos may be inclined to increase the offer to new heights because they have already.lost several of their other top draft picks to NFL clubs. Elkins may also be inclined to sign with the NFL's Packers but the Oilers are untying their purse strings just as they did last year when tliey obtained Don Trull" and Scott Appleton in the draft. The Oilers are eager to reunite Elkins and Trull who formed a brilliant passing combination at Baylor. Halfback Ken Willard of North Carolina is expected to sign shortly with the San Francisco Forty-Niners and give the NFL another "victory" over an AFL rival. Six teams have already signed their No. 1 picks —the New York Giants, Los Angeles Rams, Baltimore Colts and Detroit Lions of the NFL and the Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders of the AFL. - Giants Start Draft The Giants started the NFL's marathon session Saturday by making fullback Tucker Frederickson of Auburn heir No. 1 choice — and soon after announced they had signed him. Other No. 1 choices signed by NFL clubs were halfback Clancy Williams (Washington State) by the' Rams, fullback Mike Curtis (Duke) by the Colts and fullback Tomy Nowatzke (Indiana) by the Lions. First-round picks signed by AFL clubs were tackle Jim Davidson (Ohio State) by the Bills and guard Harry Schuh (Memphis State) by the Raiders. The Raiders also signed tackle Rich Zecher of Utah State, fullback Gus Otto of Missouri and halfback Larry Todd of Arizona State — thejast named a first- round "future" who decided to forego his = senior year at college to start his professional career in 1965. ON THE SIDELINES BY HAM RlGG MA1RESSE WINS LUANDA, Angola (UPI) — Willy Mairesse of Belgium drove his Ferrari to victory in the seventh Grand Prix of Angola with an average speed of 80.78 miles per hour. At .this writing, conference teams stand 13-6 against non- league opposition with the first CIC clashes due this week. Four of -the eight basketball playing schools in the loop are undefeated, headed by Muncie Burns' biggest team in years which is,now flowing along on a 3 rCcord. Tipton and Huntington are 2-0 and Elwood is 1-0 after a one-sided triumph over Sheri dan. Six of the eight teams sport winning records, including Alex and Peru each at 2-1 while Wabash is playing 1-1. Only Hart ford City has yet to win a game the Airdales having accounted for half of the total league losses with an 0-3 record. 'Dale coach Jim Powell,. however, says he isn't worried over his team's start and that by -mid December they'll be ready to roll. Tough Competition Looking ahead, regardless of how the Airedales fare, it seems the conference is in for some real battles before a champion is determined. With coach Marion Crawley's Lafayette Bronchos so long dominating hardwood warfar in the Lafayette Sectional and Regional, a few T. H. S. belit- tlers intimated that coach Dick Barr was padding his schedule when he shifted his holiday tourney to Hammond and picked up Lafayette Catholic. The Bronchos have now dropped two of their first three games and are not expected to be in the class of Kokomo when those two clubs meet this week. In the meantime a look at the outcome of Saturday night's games shows that Lafayette Catholic trimmed always powerful East Chicago Roosevelt 80-73 and is rated the strongest contender to end Jeff's long domination in that Sectional this year. Still Undefeated And Tipton closes out its regu lar pre-holiday schedule with Carmel which is still rolling along undefeated after taking the measure of North Central Saturday night. Noblesville is having its trou Wes at the moment but the Mil lers are only waiting for the re turn of a guard, ineligible until the first of January, because of transfer, to start making their move. And Tipton's second game of the New Year, right after Lafayette Catholic, is Huntington which has allowed its first two opponents just 34 and 39 points respectively. A typical Vike de fensive team apparently. In com piling a 19-1 season record last year,' Huntington allowed only three teams to score with more than 60 points, Tipton getting 75 in the Vike's lone loss of the season. They Are Good Barr scouted two teams over the weekend and sees trouble ahead. Muncie Burris has not forgotten the 101-55 shellacking handed it by Tipton on the local floor two years ago and will come in here battling for all it is worth Friday to avenge that humiliating blow. Both Barr and assistant coach John Moses have scouted the Owls and report they are big and dangerous ... a real good club. Barr also scouted Huntington in its 70-39 win over Berne Saturday night and scoffed at the idea the Vikings are in a rebuildnig year. Like Burris, they're big, they hustle all over the floor on defense, and spread their points over the entire team. They don't need too many points to win. RIGHT... 10% Discount on ALL ITEMS!

(0 i b MEN'S STORE WE GIVE S&H GREEN STAMPS Pleased With Crouch IFans have no idea how pleased coach Dick Barr was with the defensive play of Dan Crouch last week, and between now and Christmas he'll be spending increasing time on trying to bring the defensive play of all the rest of his squad up to a par with that displayed by Crouch. "If we can get that kind of defense from all the boys,," he says, "we'll be ready to take on anyone." The factor that does please him with ALL the boys is their unselfishness^-their teamwork. What they want more than anything else is for the scoreboard to show Tipton in front at the finish. Naturally, each boy likes to get some baskets, but they'd rather pass off their only chance for a basket all night if another boy was in a better position to take the shot and that shot meant the difference between victory and defeat. Shuns Limelight Barr had a word of praise too for. Donnie Curnutt. "I've never seen a boy who can shoot like Donnie, who is so reluctant to do so. Most of the high scorers around the state fire the ball every time they get their hands on it. Their teammates resent this and team play suffers. Frequently the team doesn't even finish with a winning season. Donnie will pass off any time he sees a teammate in a position to score and the hoys on the floor know it— that's the reason they all work so well together and the reason we had four boys in double figures, against Sharpsville," Ban- told us Sunday. "And when it comes down to a game-winning shot, they'd every one of them like to see Donnie with the hall."

Distributed by King Features Syndiaito Windfall Captures Fourth In Row By BOB MANEY The surprising Windfall Dragons won their fourth start in as many tries Saturday night by downing the Trojans 4 of Indianapolis Chatard 83 to GO. Although lacking the outstanding boy and the height they had last year the Dragons used better balance and just plain hustle to trip their opponents. Windfall started off slowly in the first quarter, having a hard time hitting the basket. They found themselves on. the short end of the score most of the stanza and used the charity line and Trojans generosity to.keep themselves in the game. The Dragons notched their first field er with two sixteen to go in the quarter and from then on there was no stopping them. With just seconds to go in the period Gary Stout made an amazing save of a lose hall under,, She Windfall goal getting it back to Plummer who put it through the hoop to-put the Dragons on top 17 to 14 as the buzzer sounded.' The Dragons were never headed in the second period forcing the visiting Trojans into mistake after mistake. Led by Greg Hoback with nine and Gary Stout with seven points the Windfall club pulled away to an eleven point halftime lead. The Trojans tried gamely to get back into the ball game in the third quarter but the Dragons behind second line center Greg Lassiter's eight points increased it to fifteen points, 60 to 45 at the end of the period. Coach Roy Watson cleared his bench in the fourth quarter and the second stringers capa'Sly finished the job. Chatard put on a full- court press, and time after time the Dragons shook man lose under their own basket for an easy two points and increased the Windfall victory margin to its finai twenty-three point spread. Chatard placed three men in double figures as Bethram. Marietta, and Keckly all scored ten for the losers. TheDragons put four men in double figures paced by Greg Hoback's 23 points, Gary Stout's 18, and Pierce and Lassiter's 11 each to give the winners good balance for the night. The Dragon B-team made it a perfect night for the home crowd they notched their third Victory of the season with : 47-34 count over their counter parts. .
