Entering the third week of play the CIC contenders stand 13-6 in non-league warfare with four of the clubs as yet undefeated, two with winning records and one at the .500 mark. Muncie Burris, with its biggest front line in a decade, leads the conference with a 3-0 mark and engages in its first CIC game Friday night at Tipton. The Owls also face neighboring Muncie South in a big city clash the following night on the latter's floor. Huntington and Tipton are 2-0 and each have a light schedule the Vikings at home Friday to Warsaw. The Burris game is Tipton's only action. At Home for Two = Elwood, 1-0 faces two tough games over the weekend but has the homecourt advantage in Send greetings daily with a Christmas gift subscription to THE TIPTON DATLY TRIBUNE. both, hosting Muncie South Side Friday and 'Indianapolis Tech Saturday. Peru which has now won two in a row after losing its opener to Marion, visits Alexandria (2-1) iFriday in a battle of Tigers while Alex is also home Saturday to neighboring Madison Heights. Wabash, now 1-1 opens conference play Friday night at Hartford City but returns home Saturday against Oak Hill. Hartford City, still winless after ;three games, also has the homecourt advantage in a weekend pair against Wabash Friday and Dunkirk Saturday. Scoring Leaders Eleven players in the conference are averaging 15 points per game or better with a number of others just a fraction of a point behind. Tipton's Donnie Curnutt, the state's highest among major cage schools has 75 points in two games for a 37.5 average after setting a new school record last week with 42 against Sharpsville-Prairie. Steve McCollum of Hartford City fell to a second place tie with Peru's Mike Eikenberry when he scored only 11 against Richmond Saturday night. Both players have 66 points in three outings. There's a gap of only two points between fourth place and the two-way tie for 10th with Mick Miller and Randy Pell of Wabash rounding out the top five scorers on 17 and 16.5 averages respectively. Only Huntington, featuring a well balanced attack that has four boys averaging in double figures, failed to place a scorer at 15 per game or better. Pro Baseball To Approve New Draft of Players By ED FITE UP I Sports Writer - HOUSTON (UPI) — Organized baseball was expected to follow the pattern of pro football today and take its first actual step toward passage of a radical new draft that would mark the end of six-figure bonuses. The general feeling was that both major and minor league officials will endorse the unprecedented free agent draft which is employed by all pro football teams. Under the free agent proposal, all college, high school and sandlot players will be grouped together and the 20 major league teams will make their selections in reverse order of their standings at the end of the season. Players" drafted by a particular club only will be able to negotiate with that club, thus discouraging the cut-throat bidding that has led to the payments of astronomical bonuses. Minor league officials already have indicated they will vote in favor of the proposal Wednesday following final discussion of the plan today, and the majors were expected to follow suit on Friday.- Meanwhile, in what might have been the last restricted draft in baseball, the majors and Class AAA and AA minors shelled out $924,000 Monday with 107 players changing hands. The majors drafted four players in the regular draft at $25,000 per player for a total of $100,000, then paid out $472,000 for 59 first-year players; the AAA clubs picked 30 players at an outlay of $288,000 and the AA teams 14 players at a cost of $64,000. Most noteworthy of the four regular draft deals was the New York Yankees' selection of Leon (Duke) Carmel, a 27-year- old former failure of the Cardinals and Mefs. • A flurry of trading Monday among the convention visitors was climaxed by a midnight announcement of the Cleveland Indians ' obtaining outfielder Chuck Hinton from the Washington Senators for outfielder Woody Held and first baseman Bob Chance. Earlier, the Philadelphia Ball State Faces Michigan In Opener Tonight By United Press International Although Michigan is expected to get through the opening night of the college basketball season with its No. 1 ranking undamaged, the rest of the teams in the top 10 might not be so lucky. The Wolverines, led by 6- foot-5 Cazzie Russell, are expected to breeze past Ball State tonight in their bid to improve on last year's 23-5 record. Third-ranked Davidson is expected to have its hands full with ever-dangerous Wake Forest, however. Davidson returns with virtually the same team that went 22-4 last season. Duke might also find Virginia Tech troublesome. The Blue Devils, fifth-rated nationally, went all the way to the NCAA finals last season before losing to UCLA, 98-83. Although Virginia Tech returns only two regulars from the squad that went 16-7 last season, a crop of talented sophomores, including 6 - foot - 10 Bob King, is expected to give the Gobblers another good season. Seventh-ranked San Francisco has a rough opener against Oregon State, which wound up fifth nationally last season. This year the Beavers will not have 7-foot Mel Counts, however. In other top games, North Carolina (No. 8)- faces Clemson, Seattle (No. 9) meets Arizona, and Minnesota (No. 10) clashes with South Dakota State. FALLS INTO FONT POOLE, England (UPI) — Nineteen-month-old Tina Williams fell . into the three-foot deep baptismal font here Monday at the new Mormon church, but was quickly rescued. Her mother had been baptized shortly before. Phillies made, their third deal of the meeting by trading outfielder Danny Cater to the Chicago White Sox-for pitcher Ray Herbert and sold Vic Power back to the Los Angeles Angels. The Senators also got catcher Dolph Camilli in • a cash deal from the Los Angeles Dodgers. mi DODGE CORONET the savingest, sellingest full-size Dodge in history If you look at low-price cars and miss this four-door sedan Coronet 440 with V8 power, it can cost* you 306 dollars. 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 in favor of Dodge! Any wonder, the Coronet is the sellingest full-size Dodge in history? Come see for yourself. •All price differences based on manufacturer's suggested retail prices for comparable Dodge, Chevy and Ford models, exclude of 19 fV^JHCB white walls, destination charges, state and local taxes, if any. Dill W CLYDE OVERDO RF MOTORS Inc. Alabama Named Nations Best By CURT BLOCK NEW "YORK (UPI) — The South has risen to college football's summit once again with today's naming of Alabama as the nation's No. 1 team by the United Press International Board of Coaches. Alabama gained the 1964 national championship with . a spotless 10-0 record garnering 22 first place'votes to seven for runner-up Arkansas, which likewise finished their 10-game schedule without a smear. The Crimson Tide won the national title in 1961 but fell to fifth in '62 when Southern California reigned and was rated ninth last year while Texas held sway. United Press International will present Alabama with a trophy symbolic of the national championship at a date yet to be announced. J Although Alabama Coach Paul Bryant was claiming his squad deserved the honor, Notre Darners couldn't surpress the feeling that they had given it away. Notre Dame, the top team for four straight weeks, needed only a victory over Southern California for the trophy but wound up instead falling into third place in the ratings when the Trojans rallied for a stunning 20-17 come from behind victory. The disappointed Irish held onto four first place picks and Big Ton champ Michigan took the two remaining first place votes and settled for fourth place in the balloting. Defending collegiate titleholder Texas came within one point of an unbeaten season and wound up in fifth place. The Longhorns lone defeat was a 14-13 heartbreaker to Arkansas. Big Eight champ Nebraska (9-1) finished sixth, down one spot from last year. Louisiana State (7-1-1) completes its regular season Saturday against Florida but regardless of the "Aitcome they've nailed down Rose Bowl, moved up a notch to No. 8 and Ohio State fell one position to ninth. Southern California, bypassed for the Rose Bowl, vaulted four spots re-entering the top ten in the final position. Florida State headed for second 10 followed by Sugar Bowl- bound Syracuse and undefeated Ivy League winner Princeton. Penn State and Utah were knotted for 14th, Illinois and New Mexico shared 16th place; Tulsa and Missouri were tied for 18th; and Mississippi and Michigan State were deadlocked for the 20th.

The Roman Catholic school is observing its 175th anniversary this year. ON THE SIDELINES BY HAM RIGG ' . , We're waiting for the morning mail to give us the starting lineup (heights and weights) of the Muncie Burris team', but in. the meantime we looked over' the roster of the group • coach Herb Harrah has organized to greet Tipton next week at Wabash. We remember watching Harrah perform for the University of Louisville in the NCAA' tourney back in the 50's and he has apparently gathered a group that play the same slam-bang ball he and his teammates used in going to the finals. Not only height but "beef". They don't play dirty ball but just good HARD ball and the Satans may have all they can handle on the Wabash floor. Mostly Seniors There's Randy Pell, the Apache quarterback who stands 6'1" and weighs 180. He's a senior. In reserve for him is a. 6'1" and 175 pound sophomore named Bill Cantrell. At the other forward post is 6'2" Jesse Williams, a senior who only scales 195 and his reserve is 6'1" and 175 pound Dick Gifford. Then at center is Tom Parrett, just a "little feller" at 6'4" and 220 pounds. In his reserve is 6'2" junior Bruce Pretorius who packs 180pounds on to his 6 '2V2" frame. Bill Unger, the football playing guard is 5'11" and ,160 and he .teams with Mick Miller at 5'10 and 155. Brad Plom is the only small one at 5'9" and 140. All. are seniors except Pretoris and Cantrell so the Apaches have experience as WPH as size. Muncie Burris A note from Warren "Bud" Collier of the Muncie Evening Press who used to help on the sports scene at Elwood advises that Rex Rudicel, who has been Muncie 6urris coach for 17 years, calls this possibly the best team he has ever had there. One of the big reasons for his team's improvement is the development of Jim Hinga, son of the Ball State cage coach. Only a sophomore, Jim is 6'3" and 175, playing a forward position. Teamed with him are Sandy Bracken, a 6'2" senior who weighs 175 and Gary Ryan, a 6'2W junior who weighs 185. Bracken is the other forward with Ryan at center. In the backcourt are Rick Fanyo, 5'11 and 160 and Ted Hart; 5'10 and 180. Hart was a starter on the team that bowed to Tipton 101-55 two years ago. In reserve coach Rudicel has 6'4" senior Gary Long at 180: and guard Phil Taylor a 5'7 senior who weighs 155 and was also . a member • of that losing Burris team two years ago. Other subs are Tim Kishel, a 6'2" junior, Mike Ashley, a 5'11" sophomore . and Steve Justin, a junior at 5'11. Going With Beef We understand even better now, why coach Dick Barr in making that difficult final cut, decided to go as he put it with "the boys with bodies". Guys of the size we've listed, scrambling for a loose ball, would put little fellas into the third row of the bleachers. . .or higher. Looks like this is gonna' be a great season. Talked with George Frye, the Huntington scribe yesterday and he said Dick Barr was a regular circus watching Huntington pulverize Berne last Saturday night. Barr says the Vikes are perhaps not quite as tall as last season when big Mike Weaver listed at 6'4" actually scaled 6'6%", but they are just as big weight-wise, and a real hustling ball club. House Needed Had the pleasure yesterday of talking briefly with new school Superintendent Vincent Guenther who has taken over the reigns of the Tipton Com- State Road 28 East TIPTON 25 *1000 The answer to extra money is here signature only, car or furniture. KEN SULT, Mgr 117 N. MAIN TIPTON O S 5-7419 • munity School system but still hasn't been able to find living accomodations for his. family. Anyone having or knowing of a four-bedroom home will get a very cordial reception at t h e Superintendent's office on West Jefefrson .street, Mr. Guenther would like to rent, until he'can get settled but is in the" eventual market to buy or build. . The family includes four boys, one now in college, one a senior, one a sophomore and one an eighth grader. The sophomore incidentally, averaged 20 points a game last season as a freshman for Fowler and now stands 5'11" and 175. Full Court Press Coach Dick Barr took the state by storm with his- famed full court press last season and since then has demonstrated it at a number of clinics around the state. Among schools o n the Tipton schedule now a t tempting to use it is Peru which, after holding Marion to its lowest point spread in a to- date undefeated season, has now won two in. a row. Barr, threugh his stress on the fact that a boy must learn to control the ball with either hand , and shoot with either hand, .has had the leadng scorer in the CIC for" two of the last three seasons and is off winging now with another of his boys bidding to be not only highest in the conference but highest in the state. Started by Murray Three years ago the late Wally Murray captured conference scoring as well as player of the year honors as a junior. The following season Wally was second in a close race with Warsaw's Dave Johnson, now at Purdue,, who beat him out in the final game of the season at Warsaw with 22 points at the foul line the same night Donnie Curnutt wound up with 14 stitches in his cranium. Last year it was Dick Mcintosh pacing the conference scoring derby with a 28.6 average and with Curnutt currently leading the way, we can look down into the underdlassmen and see possibilities of continued leadership in this division. Joe Schmith, by the way, reports that contributions are still coming in at Citizens National Bank for the Wally Murray Scholarship Fund and it is now ; assured that some deserving Tipton basketball player is going to get a start on a college education through this memorial to the former Tipton athlete. MICKAY NAMED COACH SAN FRANCISCO (UPI)— Head Coach John McKay, whose University of Southern California Trojans upset mighty Notre Dame last Saturday, was named Monday to head the West coaching staff for the 40th annual East-West Shrine game Jan. 2. . HULL SENT DOWN CHICAGO (UPI) — Dennis Hull, brother of the Chicago Hawks' star wing Bobby Hull, was sent down to the club's St. Louis farm team today. The move was made to reduce the number of players, to the National Hockey League limit of 17. NICKLAUS CHAMPION ' NORWALK, Conn. (UPI)— Jack Nicklaus, this season's highest money-winner in the Professional Golf Association circuit, won the "Tournament Champion of the Year" award issued by Golf Digest magazine. SERVICES SCHEDULED LOS ANGELES (UPI) — Funeral services for Charles G. Curtis, 50, former executive sports editor for the Los Angeles Times, will be held Wednesday at Glendale, Calif. Curtis died in his sleep Sunday morning. Advertise In The Tribune SPORTS "' UPI Sports Writer HOUSTON (UPI) — Democratic Johnny Keane, who has done business with the St. Louis Cardinals 35 years, is perfectly willing to deal with them again now although he'll probably never get the chance. "I wouldn't be the least bit adverse to making a trade with them," confided the slender, sun-tanned New Yankee manager, "but I don't think there is even a remote possibility of us -getting together. "They wouldn't even consider giving up any of their front- liners unless we gave them some of our-^top players in return and I jsouldn't be interested in doinjplnat." The mild-mannered, soft- speaking 53-year-old Keane, who first began his association with the Cardinals way back in 1930 as a skinny, wide-eyed shortstop in their farm system, finds himself in the mpst unique position in baseball. Most Successful As the man who led the Car? dinals to the 1964 world championship, he is generally con- . sidered the most successful manager around. And as the man who will pilot the Yankees in 1965, he considers himself the possessor of "the top job in baseball." Even though the Cardinals beat the Yankees in the World Series, Keane is convinced he now is with a stronger club. "We're stronger than the Cardinals in a different way," he explained. "This club wins ball games with one explosive inning. With the Cardinals, we had to put together r two-three hits most of the time. We feared that big inning from the Yankees throughout the entire series." w Familiar Aspect \ The switch from the Cards to the Yanks will have at least one familiar aspect for Keane in that he'll still be able to play Boyer at third base. Only it'll be the wrong Boyer, . Clete, not Ken. Keane claims there is a similarity among all the baseball playing Boyers. "They're similar in their general build, in the way they carry themselves and in the way they do things," he said. "You can see the Boyer walk in every one of them." . But there is ( quite a difference in the way -Ken and Clete bat. Usually about 75 points, 20 to 25 homers arid something like 50 to 60 RBI's. Keane is sure to notice that difference as the season moves along. Oh well, you can't all. win 'em Wilt Is Trailing Pace of Year Ago NEW YORK (UPI) - Wilt Chamberlain, off to a late start because of illness, will have to step up the pace if he expects to match last season's championship point total of 2,948 in the National Basketball Association. With the season a quarter completed. Chamberlain has scored 682 points for a 40.1 average in games through Sunday. The San Francisco Warrior scoring king, if he continues at this rate, would net 2,728 points for the campaign. Jerry West of Los Angeles continues to follow Chamberlain with 613 points and a 30.7 average. Walt Bellamy of Baltimore is third with 509. Three other scoring leaders retained their margins in statistical divisions. Bill' Russell of Boston has grabbed 457 rebounds; Adrian Smith of Cincinnati tops the foul shooters with 77 of 84 for a .917 percentage, and the Royals'. Oscar Robertson has a league leading 190 assists. Paul Neumann of Philadelphia is the only newcomer, taking the field goal percentage lead with 92 of 182 attempts' for a .505 mark. Willis Reed of New York is making an early bid for rookie honors with his 20.1 points a game average. FALVEYS IN CO-OPERATION WITH DANNERS FAMILY DAY' WEDNESDAY — DECEMBER 2 9 A.M. TO 8:30 P.M.
