At the end of the first eight minutes of play Westfield had stayed pretty close with the Dragons in front by only 18-14, but from there on the "Windfall hustle demoralized , the Shamrocks who left the floor at halftime in front by 12 points, 4230. Coach Roy Watson's youngsters put the icing on the cake in the first eight minutes after the intermission, just doubling Westfield's output, as the defense held the visitors to just 11 points and the Dragoqs went into the final quarter in front by a score of 65 to 41. That would have been good enough for a tie had they failed . to score in the last frame as with Watson clearing his bench, Westfield managed its best period on 24 points, but the Dragons poured 22-Jmore thrpugh the hoop to complete the route. . Most encouraging to their coach was the balanced scoring of the Dragons with four boys in double figures and nine contributing to the final score. Steve Pierce and Craig 'Plummer each- hit ten field goals and Pierce captured scoring honors with three at the foiil line where Plummer added; one more to give them 23 and 21 respectively. Also in double figures were Greg Hoback and Gary Stout with 15 apiece. ' Windfall also captured its B- team game 46-41. The box score: WINDFALL FG FT. PTS •Hoback 6 3 15 Pierce -L --10 3 23 G.

Harold and Berniece Lee Tipton One Of States 23 Major Unbeatens By KURT FREUDENTHAL United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)—Only 23 major unbeatens were left today in Indiana high school basketball, but the season's elite was far from established.

Columbus, Rushville and Gary Roosevelt have won their first four .games. Among the major first-time losers last Saturday were Indianapolis Attacks, Lebanon and Fort Wayne Central. Attucks bowed Nat East Chicago Washington, 58-51; Lebanon lost to unbeaten Lafayette Catholic, 80-79; and Fort Wayne's Tigers were beaten by New Haven, 63-57. East Chicago led at every stop to beat Attucks. Lafayette Catholic, another four-game winner, trailed Lebanon by 10 poins, with about five minutes to go, but its full-court press paid off with Bill Cutter's layup with four seconds left for the winning basket.' Rick Mount Mount tossed in 33 points for the losers. There will be as many good non-conference as league encounters in this next-to-last week of heavy firing before the Christmas layoff. Once-beaten Gary Tolleston tests Roosevelt of the steel city Wednesday.

ON THE SIDELINES BY HAM RIGG Sharpsvme-Prair jie Picks Up Ttod Wins RODEO ON TV LOS ANGELES (UPI) — The national finals rodeo from the Los Angeles Sports Arena, an event that has attracted prizes totaling $65,000 for more than 100 cowboys, will be televised on ABC-TV's Wide World of Sports program on Dec. 12. There were a number of surprises on the hardwood over the weekend as regards future Tipton opponents, but all of them indicate that coach Dick Ban- knew what he was doing when he tried to get some "power" on this year's schedule. Lafayette Catholic, for example, which for years has had to run in the shadows of coach Marion Crawley's Bronchos, Friday night continued its unbeaten skein by handing previously undefeated and highly touted Lebanon a setback despite 30 points from Rick Mount. Huntington got snowed out of its game with Warsaw,. also undefeated, but Elwood lived up to pre-season speculation •with a pair of triumphs over Muncie Southside and Indianapolis Tech—the latter the Panther's first victory ever over a Tech team. And Carmel, still unbeaten, added the scalp of highly regarded Indianapolis Broad Ripple to its string.- Hartford City, which coach Jim Powell said would be ready to start moving by mid- December, moved.up its time table with a pair of wins that broke a three game losing streak, spoiling Wabash's CIC debut and then knocking off Dunkirk ' on successive nights. Jackson Central upset a big Frankton club.

Wayne had knocked highly regarded city rival Northside off by 19 points the njght before: Talking with Corky Lamm of the Indianapolis News Friday night afteV the Bums game, Barr .pointed out that as of this writing, he felt the Central Indiana Conference was as strong as any conference in the state, including the always powerful NCC which has Kokomo and Anderson as possible state contenders. They may not have the biggest schools, but they're do ing just as good a job athletically. An Analysis Our first greeter Saturday morning at the breakfast table said rather challengingly and with a tone that indicated he had been disappointed with Tipton's showing | against Burris, "Well, what do you think of the team now?" Undoubtedly he was referring to the fact that Burris had whittled Tipton's 25-9 first quarter lead from 16 points down to six points as the Blue Devils entered the final Quarter. Frankly 'we were quite satisfied. The factor no one wants to forget is that after a brief timeout with coach'Barr between the third and fourth periods, the team returned to.the floor and scored nine straight points on a free throw iby Keith Smith, a field goal and two free throws by Bill Moora, then two straight baskets by Donnie Curnutt, and in a matter of seconds the Satans had reasserted themselves with a 15-point margin. Corky Lamm summed it up quite succinctly when in the final sentence of his story he said "... count Tipton as a contender. Tres Solide. (very solid). Still Need Work After just three games, Tipton has bad all five starters in dou ble figures and "two reserves, though playing limited time, are just on the verge. Barr pointed out that he Has not been pushing his kids as hard as a year ago, looking for them to reach their true potential just about tourney time. Tipton is mixing its press this year anditheway it shook up Burris in the first quarter shows how strong it-can be when Barr gets the edges smoothed. Keith Smith is fitting into that just as Harvey Harmon did a year ago. Tipton had either 15 or 16 "steals" against Burris and that must be some kind of a record. Donnie Curnutt fitted into that too, along with Smith and Dan Crouch. And Tipton is feeding beautifully. Lex, Boyd for the first time failed to get a-field goal, but he hit several perfect feeds and passed up shots he could have taken to give other boys better shots. That sort of teamwork counts for a lot. Speaking of teamwork, that ts something the B-team needs to work on. Taking nothing • away from a big Burris reserve-team, Tipton could have won that game if there had been just a little more unity on the squad. The boys may not realize it on the floor, but from the stands, individualism stands, out like a sore thumb, and when- one or two boys are not working to gether, it doesn't take a coach to notice it from the stands and have the spectators shaking their heads and talking among themselves. This can be a real good B team and next year and the year after give Tipton another varsity to be proud of but it has to be five, six, seven or eight boys all working together. Two Games — Two Wins University of Georgia freshmen picked up two consecutive wins,' and Dick Mcintosh con tributed 26 or 28 points in the first one when the Georgia •Frosh set a school record of 115 points. Saturday night against a powerful Clemson College frosh team, Dick was held to seven points as he was double-teamed after that first game effort, but Dick got credit for 18 assists in the victory. That again is a testimonial to teamwork.

Tipton, Indiana OS 5-2143 The SharpsvilhKPrairie Spar-' tans 'overcame, a huge' disadvantage in height Saturday night to chalk up their second victory in two days and bring their season record to a two and three mark by^chopping down the Marion Bennett Trojans 82 to 69. The Spartans posted their first win Friday night against Plainfield Charlton 72 to 58. The winners found themselves on the short end of a 28 to 25 score at half, but came through with. 49 points in the last half to bring Coach Bob Blessing his first coaching victory. The Spartains had balanced scoring with Cullison leading the way with 16!, Stout 15, Watson 12, and Kingery 10. Led by the sharp shooting of Denny .Cullison the Spartans made 4heir second annual homecoming game a happy one by sending the visitors to their fifth straight defeat. The Trojans of Bennett found that their own errors, cold shooting in the first half, and foul trouble in the second gave the >much smaller Spartans chance to overcome a front line that averaged over six-three. The Spartans of Sharpsville Prairie played their best game of the year as they gave new coach Bob Blessing his second victory of the young season. The use of a balanced attack and the fine playmaking of Gene Watson eventually proved the key to victory. -Bennett dug a hole for themselves in the first quarter by hitting only two of nineteen attempts to find themselves down 16 to 7. The visitors seemed to be • bothered by Sharpsville- Prairie's answer to Notre Dame's "house of noise", as several costly errors counterbalanced their own control of the boards, and made vocal support even louder than it was before. The Spartans behind the shooting of Denny Cullison, and Jerry Carter took advantage of miscues and shot the home team into a nine point lead. The visitors warmed up in the second stanza as McDonald found the range for nine points for a bigger output than the entire Trojan team in the first quarter. He received help from his teammates toward the end of the - period and the visitors ended up with 22 points. Coach Bob Blessing's boys were upto the sudden hot spell however as Ihey. received balanced scoring from Cullison, Stout, and Kingery with 8, 7, and 6 points respectively to actually increase their lead to eleven points at half 40 to 29. The visitors outscored S-P by two in the third stanza as they tried desperately to get back into the game. Fouls in the final period proved to be the downfall of the Trojans. In an effort to get the ball the visitors committed foul after foul and the PASADENA, Calif.
