PAGE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Thursday, Dec. 3, 1964 Celtics Hike Lead As Detroit Tops Royals By United Press. International Now that Bob Pettit is back in' business for St. Louis, the National Basketball Association's Western Division race is getting tighter. : • The brilliant Hawk forward returned to action Wednesday night after missing four games with^a muscle tear. He proved to be the difference as the Hawks nipped Los Angeles, 105102, to close to within 2V4 games of the' division-leading Lakers. In other NBA action Wednesday night, Boston moved 4V& games ahead of-Cincinnati in the Eastern Division chase by dumping New York, 116-91, while Detroit knocked off Cincinnati, 125-115. Baltimre topped injury - ridden San (Francisco, 120-114. The Laker-Hawk battle was tied 10 times in the fourth period until Pettit's go ahead basket with 94 seconds to go. Four final points by Len Wilkens more than offset a three-point play by Dick Barnett of the Lakers. Pettit led a well-balanced St Louis attack with 23 markers, while Elgin Baylor swished 35 for Los Angeles. Unstoppable Boston saw five Boston rr Cincinnati men score in double figures Philadelphia with Tommy Heinsohn and Sam Jones "scoring 20 apiece. Bill Russell added 19 and hauled in 121 rebounds. Johnny -Green had 26 for the outclassed Knicks. The win ran Boston's record to 18-5. Terry Dischinger hit 30 for Detroit in its big win ,over Cincinnati. Jerry Lucas and Oscar Robertson . combined for 58 points for the Royals, but got little help from their mates. . Walt Bellamy was the hero for Baltimore against San Francisco. He scored 31 and held the great Wilt Chamberlain to a relatively mild 33-point outburst. • The Warriors led 94-90 in the final quarter but faded after Chamberlain obviously tired, Wayne Hightower rfiinjured his broken nose, and Nate Thurmond sat out the late action when his pulled muscle pained him. That left Bellamy and flashy Gus Johnson in control of the boards for Baltimore. Palmer, Nicklaus Represent U. S. By TIM MORIARTY UPI Sports Writer KAANAPALI, .Maul, Hawaii, (UPI) — It was Arnold ^Palmer and Jack Nicklaus against the world today when Uncle Sam's "gold dust twins" started matching strokes against 66 other top-notch international golfers in .the 12th annual Canada Cup matches. Sport fans in this 50th and newest state of the. United States—most of them avid bettors — installed the Yanks as heavy favorites to'earn their country the team title for the fifth straight year. They were just as certain that when the final round of this annual 72-hole tournament is completed Sunday that either Nicklaus or Palmer will National Basketball'Association By United Press International Eastern "Division W.

S. the team championship for the .sixth time in H previous editions of the international tournament. Oddly, Palmer never captured the individual crown in four earlier appearances in Canada Cup play. However, the way the Penn sylvania muscleman carved up the Royal Kaanapali golf course in a pro-amateur warmup round Wednesday, this could be the year that he breaks bis jinx. iFiring seven birdies and eagle against two bogeys, 'Palmer chopped one stroke off Kaanapali's old record, of 66, set by New Zealand's Bob Charles last year. Arnie posted five of his birdies on the front nine, which he negotiated in 31, en route to his seven-under-par round. Arrayed against the powerful Yank tandem for the start of cup play today were .33 other I two-man teams. The longshot players among the Hawaiian golf lovers were putting their money on Argentina's long-ball belters, Roberto De Vincenzo and Leopoldo Ruiz, to upset the favored U. S. pair in the team race. Other strong contenders for the team title included Spain South Africa, Canada, Australia, England, New Zealand and Puerto Rico. s After Kevenge As Tipton Launches Conference Schedule STARTING LINEUPS TIPTON (2-0) POS BURRIS (3 -6) Moore, Sr., 6'3", 190_:—F____Hinga, Soph. 6'3", 175 Smith, Sr., 6*1", 170 F____Bracken, Sr., 6'2", 180 Boyd, Sr., 6'2/ 2 ", 180 G_ Eyan, Jr., 6'2y 2 ", 185 Curnutt, Sf., v 6'4", 170__G__J.Fanyo, Sr., 5'11", 160 Crouch, Sr., 5'10", 180__G____Hart, Sr., 5'10"; 180 More on the way everyday!

COACH: Dick Barr | 'I'm starting, the same five I did in our first two games, but you can also'say that Dave Quigley, Gary Meyers, Jim Harmon and Jim Hannah will see action . if I get a chance I want jto use the other three boys on the squad." That was the announcement of coach Dick Barr when "questioned on a starting lineup for the important Muncie Burris game Friday night, j Burris is big, the biggest team Tipton has faced so far, jand it's an aggressive team which has improved steadily after] a one- point squeaker over Middletown, 61-60 in its opener. Victory number two came by 12 points, 76J64 against Eaton and last week the Owls thoroughly tromped Yorktown by 30 points, 85-55. j . • Idols of Muncie | And with Muncie Central blacklisted until at least Jan.jl, former followers of the Bearcats have turned enmasse to Burris with the result that Muncie radio station WLBC which in thepast announced the Bearcats' gamies,, will have space on the Tipton stage Friday night, to send over the airwaves the play-byplay account of the undefeated Owls. • | And the Muncie Press, which earlier in the week predicted "Burris may surprise Tipton" will also be on hand for- this CIC opener. Coach Rex Rudicel, who has been at the helms of the Owls for 17 seasons, refuses to tab this team as the best he has ever coached but admits it looks right now as though it mightjbe •before the season is over. A clue to how strong the club is- comes from the fact that a 6'4" senior Gary Long, who weighs 180 pounds, has been unable to break into the Burris starting unit after transferring from Wabash where he was a regular last year. Want Revenge And it's no secret that Rudicel would rather have his team bleat Tipton than any other team in the CIC.

The other Tipton points- were scored by Don Curnutt with 18, Bill Moore with nine,, Dan Crouch with six and Keith Smith 4. That's only 37 which leaves .Tipton on the short end of a 4&-37 returned basis. Worked on Defense Coach Barr isn't as much concerned about his offense however, as he is the defense. Burris used a helter-skelter man for-man defense that • shook Tipton up through much of the game and this week Barr has worked his own boys hard' on both defense and rebounding in the hope of choking off the effectiveness of- the Burris all court play. The Tipton coach said he felt his boys realized the importance of this one. "I may have stressed defense a little, too much this week, because that was what I felt we needed to tighten up. Last week we had four boys in double figures and I figured our offense would talie care of itself. At times this wed; the boys went overboard on teamwork, passing off when they should have .taken the shot. In a way that's good, but I feel that once they get in the gajne they'll realize "the importance of getting the ball in the basket and will take the good shot when it presents itself." Tipton hopes the same thing. Time for the varsity game is 8 p.m. SOUNDS GOOD - BUT.... We've.enjoyed a lot of relaxing moments with our Huntington friend George Frye whose column "By George" covers the Viking sports front . . . but we wonder where he spent his last moments before writing the lines that appeared under his. byline this Tuesday. "Things. are going rosy in Tipton these days. They've got to go rosy when you score 103 points in 32 minutes. . "I couldn't place Tipton any lower than the first four when mentioning the best basketball teams in the state of Indiana at this stage of the season. They rank right along with Lebanon, Kokomo and Columbus at this writing . . . and don't sell Fort Wayne Central (Holiday Tourney) short. In fact I'd have to go a little further and call Tipton the No. 1 team at the present— the best darned team in the state of Indiana." By George! You don't think that li'l ol' rascal could be softening Tipton up for the Viking's appearance here at the Tipton gym Jan. 15? LINEBACKER GETS REST PHILADELPHIA . (UPI) — Philadelphia Eagle linebacker Don Hultz got an unwanted vacation from football for the rest Sf the seasbn when he was operated *6n for a knee injury. Hultz"was' injured in last the CIC.

Present also on the squad were two boys who'were on the team when'they absorbed that -pasting and there is nothing they'd like better than |to be able after the game to chortle at Titpon's aspiration to state recognition. Those are the circumstances surrounding this game and coach Barr knows this may very well be the, toughest test his team will get prior to the holiday tourney, although the schedule is just starting to toughen up. Veterans Returned J Burris last year gave the Blue Devils all they could handle before the whistle ended with Tipton in front 79-70. Back from that squad are Gary Ryan rwho popped 14 points into the basket as a sophomore, Ted Hart who had 11, Rick 'Fanyo who also had 11, Phil Taylor and Sandy Bracken who had six apiece. That's 48 points returned. by Eagle 'Physician James Nixon at Graduate Hospital. / '65 Corvair Mow to see, mow to try in cars mow people buy Order a new Chevrolet, Chevelle, Chevy Uj Corvair or Corvette now at your dealer's m EqstJeffersonSitrecr vTiptoit,Indiana r r ' OS5-2143 NAME ALL-STARS NEW YORK (UPI) — The Eastern College Athletic Conference has announced its small college' northern squad for 1964 with back?

SUGAR RAY WITHDRAWS .'PARIS (UPI) — A swollen right hand and a touch of the flu forced former middleweight champion Sugar Ray Robinson to withdraw from his Dec. 14 bout against Luis Folledo of Spain. Robinson, who injured his hand in his Rome fight against Fa-bio Bettini, said he "would need both hands against a fighter like Folledo," who is the eighth-ranked middleweight contender.

' . • • - (• Far Too Soon True, the Satans have defeated two tetams, Clinton Central and Sharpsville. But while we rate C-C as a pretty good club and S-P much better than their record to date indicates, neither is in a class with some of the as yet undefeated company the Blue Devils have coming up. Coach Barr admits he's got some defensive wrinkles to iron out and a couple of the boys from whom he's been expecting points have yet to find the range. Offensively he's not worried. •Moore, Boyd Crouch and Curnutt have all been in double figures. And in brief appearances Dave Quigley has 12 points that indicates he'll be a double-figure scorer any time he's play ing regularly. . Keith Smith and Gary Meyers have yet to find the range from the floor but coach Barr ex pressed no worry over that "They're just trying too hard and a little bit tight . . . they'll relax in another, game or two iBarr commented. Ratings Next Week iBarr will again be one of the ten basketball coaches rating the state prep teams for the UPI He received his official ap pointment for this year Tuesday and instructions to submit his ballot for the."Top Teh" Sunday, taking into account the outcome of games this weekend. Incidentally, that's quite _a .dis tinction, to be picked as one of only ten coaches out of the 573 coaching in high school prep circles in the entire state. We don't know yet how Barr is going to rate his Satans — in fact j he probably won't know himself until he sees how. they yfare Friday against undefeated Burris, but we'll sure be up at his place having coffee Sunday morning when he makes out that ballot ... in fact we'll probably carry it all the way down to Indianapolis Sunday just to make sure it's received in time Tough Opponents Seriously, we wouldn't be one bit surprised to see several of Tiptcn"s future opponents on •the list of rated teams when they are published next Wednes day. Among, those we can think of are Elwood, possibly Burris Huntington, Fort Wayne Cen tral, Lafayette Catholic and Carmel. The latter club incidently, last week knocked off Indianapolis North Central which had previously spoiled the record of a good New Castle team. Carmel has real good team balance and is another of the toughies who will test Tipton before Holiday Tourney time. DEPT. OF THIS AND THAT: Bob Sullivan, lieutenant in the state conservation department, must feel a sense of real achiev- ment. Last year.on a volunteer basis, he took over the coaching reigns at New Lancaster and of the ; hoys on his . team, three started Tuesday night for Elwood Junior High and three others were in Tipton Junior High's lineup . . 1 and they're good ones. Bob Hammel, 'one -time prexy of the CIC sportswriters, devoted his whole column' yes ; terday in the Kokomo Times, to a" comparison of Lebanon 's Rick Mount and Tipton 's Donnie Curnutt, after interviewing the only coach who has had the chance to try stopping both of them this year, Ray Craft of Clinton Cen ,tral. Craft feels Mount might have an edge on Donnie as a shot, but that Donnie is better defensively and is more conscious of feeding off to his teammates. He also expressed the . belief that Mount, although only a junior (he's older than Curnutt) has reached his physical maturity while Donnie, getting stronger every year, will keep on improving to reach his physical peak about his sophomore year in college . . . Coach Red Rocha writes he's delighted with Harmon and his other freshmen scholarship boys who are now beating the varsity regularly in scrimmages. Just. now joining the NCAA, he feels the scholarships given this year are so ^successful that he'll be allowed more next season and by the time Harmon is a junior Red will have a real strong team. He's already booked the University of Miami and University of Georgia (Dick Mcintosh) and plans in Harvey's junior year to have six or seven mid west college games lined up where Tipton fans will have the chance to see Harmon as a college performer. They will replace the service teams which the U. of H. has been playing on the Islands. 'Harmon incident ly, will be hoipe Dec. 20 for Christmas vacation for two weeks,-"and Will-be in the stands at Hammond for the holiday tourney . . . Gary Cox, who played a big role in Noblesville's Sectional win over Tipton two years ago, made a fine debut in Butler's opener Tuesday night and has nailed a starting berth as a sophomore. Sheridan's Dave Sanders is the big gun in Butler's attack and Noblesville's Stan Neal was Ball State's leader against Michigan the same night. MINOR LEAGUE MEETING HOUSTON, Tex.
