PAGE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Tuesday, Dec. 8, 1964 SPORTS PARADE •By MILTON RICHMAN NEW YORK (UPI) — One angel has fallen already and out in Los Angeles they're praying that the second one won't be* the American League's outstanding pitcher. Dean Chance of the Angels was officially certified the A.L.'s Nb. 1 pitcher for 1964 Tuesday and there are a lot of people who happen to think he's the No. 1 pitcher in all baseball. Chance's best buddy, Bo Belinsky, finally was dealt away by the Angels last Friday during the major league meetings at Houston. Luckily for him, Bo landed right, side up with the pennant-contending Phillies. "The Phillies must be brave people," commented one baseball official who, like everyone else, was aware of Bo's fun- loving antics. Refers To Chance "I don't know," 'disagreed in- other baseball man. 'They tell me that other guy on the Los Angeles club makes Belinsky look like an angel." There could be no doubt he was referring to the brash, bright-eyed, 23-year-old Chance, who won 20 games last season, 11 of them shutouts, and turned in' a near phenomenal 1.65 earned run average. Chance is a genuinely likable young fellow. Bob Willis, who was his general manager at Fox Cities of the Three"'- I League in his second year in pro ball and knows him about as well as anyone, insists Dean is misunderstood a great deal. "You have to get to know him," says Willis. "It takes a little time but he's worth it. I've been in baseball a long time and I never met a finer boy than Dean." Speaks His Mind Chance is the kind of individual who says exactly what he thinks and since he's impulsive to boot, he rubs some people the wrong way. When he felt he deserved a raise, he spoke right up and said so this year even though the baseball" season was only=a few weeks old. He hollered so loud that Angel General Manager Fred Haney finally gave him an increase. Haney says he would have done so anyway be- Young Jockey Winner of Six Aqueduct Races NEW YORK (UPI) — Apprentice Mike Venezia, the first jockey ever to ride six winners at Aqueduct, was back to work again at six o'clock this morning. Venezia, a 19-year-old native of Brooklyn, N. Y., who weighs 95 pounds, rode the first four winners at. Aqueduct Monday and closed the program by taking the eighth and ninth races. In between, he had three consecutive seconds. "Wow," Venezia said after his brilliant performance. "I guess we'll have to get some champagne and celebrate tomorrow (Tuesday) night" Venezia had little time for celebration Monday night since he' had to be up at six Tuesday morning to exercise four horses for trainer Ed O'Brien, who sub-leased his contract from Venezia's uncle,, former trainer Al Scotti. SETS EXHIBITION DETROIT (UPI) — The Detroit Tigers and Milwaukee Braves will play a three-game exhibition series from April 810 to open the new $18 million stadium in Atlanta, Ga. TOP TEAMS NEW YORK <UPI) — Five of the six teams entered in the fourth annual ECAC Holiday hockey tournament Dec. 21-23 at Madison Square Garden are listed among the top 10 teams in the East in the intercollegiate hockey newsletter. MAY MISS GAME NEW YORK (UPI) — Injured defenseman Jim Neilson of the New York Rangers may miss Wednesday's game against the Chicago Black Hawks. Neilson suffered strained ligaments of the left knee against the Hawks on Saturday. cause he had promised. Winner of this year's Cy Young Award, which is annually voted to the majors' outstanding pitcher, Chance has an opportunity to go on to even bigger and better things. Basically, he's a good guy and a superb pitcher. He has- the head and the arm with which to reach the heights. The only thing that possibly could hold him back is his mouth. Chamberlain and Bill Russell Tpp NBA Statistics NEW YORK (UPI) — Wilt Chamberlain of the San Francisco Warriors and Bill Russell of the Boston Celtics continue to lead in the National Basketball Association's two major categories of scoring and rebounding, according to the official NBA statistics released today. The statistics, through games of Dec. 6, show Chamberlain the leader in total points with 803 and in points-per-game average with 38.2. The big dipper is 82 points ahead of runner-up Jerry West of the Los Angeles Lakers despite having played less games than the Laker ace. West, with 721 points, is also second in points-per-game average with 30.0. Russell is on his way to becoming the first player in NBA history to record over 14,000 career rebounds. He has picked off 552 in 25 games so fair this season for a 22.1 per game average, and if he maintains his current pace, he will go over the 14,000 mark Tuesday night against Los Angeles. Jerry Lucas of the Cincinnati Royals is second in rebounds with 532, but Chamberlain has the best per game average with 24.6. Cincinnati's Adrian Smith continues to top the foul shooters with a .920 average and teammate Oscar Robertson is far in front among the play- makers with 245 assists. Smith has missed only nine shots in 101 free throw attempts, which is the best record in league history. Oarry Costello of the Philadelphia 76'ers is second to Smith in free throw percentage with .867 and Guy Rodgers of the Warriors is second in assists, with 174. Terry Dischinger of the Detroit Pistons has supplanted Paul Neumann of Philadelphia as the league's best field goal shooter. Dischinger has. hit on 161 shots out of 318 attempts for a .506 percentage, which is only .001 per cent better than the Lakers' West. West is offering a serious challenge to Robertson as the league's most complete, 'ballplayer. Besides ranking second in scoring and field goal percentage, the , all-star guard is ON THE SIDELINES BY HAM RI6G Some days the pickings are lean for a columnist, and on those occasions one looks around the other papers to see what opposing coaches, writers and bystanders are saying. We were in a quandry this morning so .called coach Dick Barr and asked for his predictions on the outcome of games this weekend in the CIC. Top on the list of course is the Huntington visit to Elwood in the first of a Panther doubleheader that sees them host­ ing'Indianapolis Cathedral Saturday night. A Real Toughie Barr said "That'll be a real back-breaker" referring to the Vikes' visit to Elwood . . . "Huntington plays real close defensive, ball while the Panthers play more our own type game. . .it could go either way, of course, but I think the home- court advantage will prevail for Elwood here." Knowing the trouble Tipton has had in the past in the lair of the Panthers, we asked Barr why it was that everyone seems to have such a difficult time playing at Elwood. "I don't think the floor is regulation size," Barr said. "I may be wrong but it just doesn't seem full size. . .Another thing, the seats are so close to the floor along the sidelines that it distracts players who aren't used to it, and in adi- tion, there isn't much room under the basket for players used to dribbling around in that area. You remember how they bottled up Dick Mcintosh over there last year, and that's something no other team in the state could do when he drove in. It's just an awfully difficult court for a stranger to play on. and I think Huntington will find that out Friday night." To Beat Cathedral arr then went on to predict that the Panthers would have an easier time on their home- court Saturday against Cathedral. • In other, games around the CIC he felt Alexandria would seventh in foul shooting with .836 and fourth in assists with 5.4. ' ( HISTORY When you're looking for a full-size car (a Ford/Chevy-type car), butyou want it hot and handsome and at a lower price—you fiaven't seen anything till you've seen Coronet. Any way you look at it, Coronet's the most for the least.... with optional power to 426 cubic inches. With roojti, ride and style. With a price that's lower by a long shot—model for model—than evqry full-size Ford and Chevy in the book; Coronet! It's the sellingest Dpdge, because just about everyone who looks—buys. Have you seen Coronet, yet? BOYS CLYDE RF MOTORS Inc. State Road 28 East TIPTON handle Fairmount Friday night and have a good chance against Pendleton next Tuesday. He thought Peru would have an edge with big Mike Eikenberry at home against Hartford City but cautioned "that was a real good win the Airedales got last week against Wabash and when they came back the next night to defeat Dunkirk it may gave given them the incentive to go. Win For Vikes ^ Huntington returns home the night after the Elwood game to host Columbia City and Barr felt the Vikes would have little trouble- in disposing of its visitors. Tipton Outlook Of Tipton's two games this week, Wabash there Friday and Frankfort here Saturday, he felt Frankfort might be the tougher opponent. In previous years, Wabash would have been tougher on their own floor, for it was what we referred to as a sort of bandbox, but this year coach Herb Harrah's boys are situated in a sparkling new gymnasium which is regulation in every way and boys used to playing a regulation court should not have too much difficulty adjusting to it. Frankfort is used to a big court so our floor will pose no problem for them and Barr expects the NCC members to give Tipton just a little more opposition although he warns that Wabash can be tough when it wants to play bal land pointed to their close battle with Marion as an indication that Tipton will have to play ball if it wants to win. The Apaches also have a double header, visiting Southwestern, over near Lafayette, for a Saturday clash. Working Out Asked what the Satans had planned for them in getting ready for the weekend, Barr said "We had a little one-on- one yesterday and today we'll go with two-on-two. Wednesday and Thursday we'll start work on getting the boys together on teamwork and setting up a few plays that our scouting reports indicate may be helpful. One other game in the area was of interest to Barr, who said he'd have chief scout John Moses down at Carmel Saturday night when the Sectional site is the scene ' of a time-honored conflict between Carmel and Noblesville, both future' Tipton foes. Carmel Respected "We don't know too much about Noblesville yet, except that they always play pretty good ball. It's too early to real ly size 'em up yet, for I understand they'll have one or two new boys eligible to play with them after the first of the year and that can make a tremendous difference in any ball club. Right now, however, we're more concerned with Carmel because we have a date on that floor just before the holiday tourney. Right now too, you have to rate Carmel one of the better early clubs in Hoos- ierland. They've already knocked off two Indianapolis teams, North Central and Broad Ripple, and that's a real accomplishment. Coach Bill Shepherd has himself a real fine' ball club and we want to scout them closely against the Millers." Barr was tickled to death too with Lafayette Catholic's victory over Lebanon. Not that he holds anyting against Lebanon but the win by Lafayette shows that the Blue Devils will be up against a real strong team in their first game after the turn of the New Year, and played on the Lafayette floor, Barr said, "our kids will know they can't let down,, no matter how we do in the tourney". Seventh Grade Divides dames Windfall Junior High had a lot of "beef in its lineup last night and just plain overpowered Carl Treece's Tipton seventh graders in a 27-26 thriller in the local junior high. Tipton at several times held tight leads in the contest but appeared a bit timid against the big junior Dragon front line. Windfall captured-each of the first two periods, the opener 6-4 and the .second quarter 6-5 to leave the floor at halftime in front 12-9. Following the timeout, Doug Legg got a hot hand with three baskets and Tipton tied it up at 20-20 going into the final frame by outscoring their opponents 11-8 in'the third quarter. At Foul Line In the final quarter each team got two field goals but Windfall capitalized on Tipton fouling to outscore the future Blue Devils 3-2 at the charity stripe and pulled out the victory. Coach Treece expressed pleasure at his boys' performance but felt that they seemed needlessly in awe at the size of coach Wimpy Ray's Windfall cagers. •In the other game of the seventh grade double header, Lutheran School failed to provide any opposition for coach Trece's squad and after trailing 14-2 in the first quarter when their only points came at the foul line, dropped steadily back to absorb a final 46-11 walloping. Arnold Leader In the Windfall game, Arnold was the top Dragon scorer with 13 points, followed by Mullins with five, Caudill with four, Yohe with three and Kendal with two. For Tipton it was Jay Anderson with eight, Zimmerman with six, Legg with eight, Elston with three and Day with one. Larry Anderson was top scorer in the game with Lutheran, getting 12 points, all on field goals, with Grimme nine, Cage eight, Smouse six, Deal five. Fakes four and Smith two. Fpr the Lutherans it was Schulenburg with five, Ireland with three, Tuscher with two and Smelser with one.

The powerful Wolverine ca gers showed the University'of Missouri how well they play the game of basketball Monday night as they steamrolled to a 51-61 victory. Michigan, led by Cazzie Russell, Bill Buntin and Larry Tregoning, never trailed in running up its third straight triumph. Michigan built a 19-point lead with five minutes still remaining in the first half and went on to prove it was no match for the Tigers. Buntin led the Michigan scoring attack with 14 points while Russell and Tre goning tallied 12 each. There was a scarcity of games among the nation's top 10 teams Monday night but 19th ranked North Carolina scored an impressive victory by downing lOth-ranked Kentucky 82-67. The Tarheels, who were upset by Georgia - last week, never were able to pull far away from the Wildcats until the final three minutes of the game when Billy Cunningham and Bob Lewis led a scoring surge. Lewis ended up the game's high* scorer with 23 points and pulled down 14 rebounds while Cunningham collected 22 tallies and 13 retrieves. Villanoya, the nation's 12th- ranked team, had a close call with Princeton. The Wildcats had to go into overtime to defeat the Tigers 61-60 and it took a jump shot by Bill Melchionni with only 22 seconds left to pull it out. Princeton played a slow-down game against Villanova's zone defense and managed, to control the first half, but Melchionni and George Leftwich rallied the Wildcats to tie the game with three minutes remaining. The Tigers then froze, the ball until the last two seconds, but a 20- foot jump shot by,Bill Bradley at the buzzer went off the rim and sent the game" into overtime. Melchionni was the game's high scorer with 24 points. Bradley netted 23 fpr the Tigers. Bradley, Indiana and Arizona all set their sights on jumping, into the top 20 as each picked up its third consecutive victory. The: Braves hit on. 58 per cent of^ their shots to down Murray State 76-74, the Hoosiers built up an early lead to top Oklahoma 87 -69 'and- Arizona withstood a late, Texas Tech rally to beat the Red Raiders 77-75.

Wabash A clash between two unbeaten powerhouses, marking the debut for both in conference play, headlights a busy week-end of action in the OIC. Huntington and Elwood, rated with Tipton and Peru as leading contenders in the race for conference laurels, clash Friday night on the Elwood floor in what rates now as the -most important game on the pre-holiday schedule. Elwood bffers the second highest, scoring team in the conference against coach Bob Straight's always stingy defense which in two outings has limited Northfield to 34 points and Berne to 39. A clash last Fri. between Huntington and' Warsaw which would have been more indicative of the Viking's true strength was cancelled on account of snow. In the meantime coach Ray Manis Panthers, taking up where they left off last year when they were the only team in the state to derail'Tipton in regular season play, have roared to three wins, tromping hapless Sheridan 92-51, Muncie Southside 73-65 in a close battle and Indianapolis Tech 79-53. Elwood's floor is expected to be an advantage to the Manis- men, but this clash may well be the top attraction in all Hoo- sierland this week. The Panthers are home again Saturday to Indianapolis Cathedral. Tipton, currently leading the conference with one- win and undefeated in overall play at 3-0, has a week-end double'aead- er also, going after victory num ber two in conference play Friday when they invade the ! 5rand new teepee of the Wabash Apaches and then return hom.e Sat. for a non-league game against 'Frankfort of the North Central Conference. ' In another big game in-the CIC, the other two teams with conference wins, clash at Peru with the Bengals of coach Bob Biddle, now'3-1 after an opening loss to strong Marion, hosting coach Jim Powell's Airedales who picked up two big victories last weekend over Wabash and Dunkirk after bowing in their first three outings.. Muncie Burris is idle until a meeting with Wabash next week, while Alexandria, a 49-48 winner Saturday over previously unbeaten Madison Heights, but a Friday loser to .Peru, goes out of the conference' to meet Fair mount on the Tiger's ftoor. The Bengals return to action next Tuesday at Pendleton.

Huntington has none in that lofty department but with its fine defensive record appears to need none. Tjie Vikes have, however, four boys averaging in double figures. Alexandria and Burris also failed to dent the high scoring column individually but Alex has three in double figures for the season and Burris has five. Hartford City is the only team with more than one boy reaching 15 points per game or better. 'Elwood with five in double figures has one boy hitting over 15 per game, Peru also has one as does Tipton and Wabash. Wabash has three in double figures and Tipton has four.
