?AG£4 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Monday, Dec. J4,196* SPORTS PARADE NEW YORK (UPI) — That titanic tug-of-war between the AAU and NCAA rapidly' is degenerating into a national bore so that >any attempt to deter-: mine who's right and who's wrong inevitably works out to 6-5, pick 'em. Even .those avid followers of amateur athletics who used to merely mutter disgustedly "who cares." • As is generally the case in most disputes of this type, both sides are wrong, if for no other reason than each seems dead bent upon prevailing pver the other. Not content with making a mountain out of a molehill, the AAU and NCAA went one step further and made a federal case of their disagreement. The two groups already have' succeeded in confusing, everyone, including some ; of their own affiliates. If they persist, and you can bet they will, they most certainly will reach a point where they'll put everyone to sleep. The mass confusion which both groups have managed to achieve was never more apparent than it was Friday dur- , ing the final convention session of the Eastern Athletic College Conference, which is a member of the NCAA. Hoping to help solve the controversy, the ECAC's Executive Council proposed a national coalition in which the NCAA and AAU both would have equal voice. The proposal was passed and it will be submitted to the NCAA at its annual convention in Chicago next month. "What do we do in the meantime?" inquired Yale's Director of Athletics Delaney Kiphuth. No one knew for sure. Some felt, their schools should continue to go along with the NCAA and not compete in ' AAU-sanctioned meets; others saw no reason why they should 'keep their schools from competing in any "good, clean wholesome meet." Joins Latter Group "'• Kiphuth took his place in the ~latter group. He promptly announced Yale would compete "in an AAU track meet that was held Friday night. -Jeremiah Ford II, Director of Athletics at Pennsylvania and spokesman for the Ivy League, said the Ivy/League "considers itself an autonono- mous body" and would act independently. The point appeared settled when Ralph Furey, Director of Athletics at Columbia, which is a member of the Ivy League, the ECAC and the NCAA, suddenly announced his school was pulling out of the same track meet Yale had entered. Naturally, he was asked how come? "Well, we agreed we're an aulonomous body," he said : "So we're acting autonono- mously." Moore Leads Colts ington Against By MARTIN LADER ' UPI Sports Writer Lenny Moore, unwanted by the Baltimore Colts just a. few months ago, may-be the equalizer -to the great Jimmy Brown in the National Football League championship . game at Cleveland Dec. 27. Moore, a 31-year-old veteran of eight pro seasons, was sidelined with injuries for most of the 1963 campaign and was on the market this year. No one took him, the Colts had to use him, and both Moore and Baltimore were rewarded with, outstanding success. •Moore closed out the regular campaign on a high note Sunday as he scored two touchdowns in leading the Colts to a 45-17 rout over the Washington Redskinsi Moore set two NFL records in the process, scoring his 20th touchdown of the season to break the old mark of 19 established by Jim Taylor in 1962 and also scoring in his 18th straight game. The two touchdowns gave Moore a total of 114. points for the season, tops in the NFL. >Keep Edge The victory was inconsequential to the Colts, who clinched the Western Division title three weeks ago, except for the fact that they dispelled any doubts they had lost their competitive furge. Cleveland secured the Eastern Division crown by beating the New York Giants 52-20 on Saturday afternoon. The Green Bay Packers earned the right to play the St. Louis Cardinals in the Playoff Bowl at Miami, Fla., Jane. 2, by tying, the Los Angeles Rams 2424. The Minnesota Vikings finished in a secondplace tie with Green Bay in the West with a 41-14 trouncing of the Chicago Bears, but the Packers gained the Playoff Bowl because they outscored Minnesota in the two games between the teams. In other season-closing games, the Cardinals nipped the Philadelphia Eagles 36-34, the Dallas Cowboys tipped the Pittsburgh Steelers 17-14, and the Detroit Lions beat the San Francisco Forty Niners 24-7. Ray Berry also set an all- time league record as the Colts coasted to their 12th victory in 14 games. He caught five passes for a lifetime total of 506, three better than the old mark set by Billy Howton. i Rail/ To Tie Green Bay, which had been expected to sweep to the Western Division title this season, had to rally from a 21-7 halftime deficit at Los Angeles to prevent falling into third place. A five-yard pass from Bart Starr to Boyd Dowler accounted for one touchdown in the final quarter and Jim Taylor brought home the tie by bucking over from the one. The first Los Angeles touchdown came on a 95-yard pass play from Bill Munson to Bucky Pope. The Vikings completed their most successful season in history as Bill Brown ran for two touchdowns and scored a third after taking a 20-yard pass from Fran Tarkenton. The outstanding play of the game; belonged to Chicago, . however, with 20-year-old Andy Livingston, the youngest player in the NFL, returning a Wckoff 86 yards for a touchdown. The loss left the defending champion Bears with a 5-9 record and their worst season in history. >FG Wins Game A 19-yard field goal by J i m Bakken with 22 seconds left provided the Cardinals with their margin of victory against Philadelphia. It was Bakken's fifth three-pointer of the game and tied an NFL record shared by three others. The Cards and Eagles also combined for a league record when they scored 47 points in the second quarter. Norman Snead passed for three Philadelphia touchdowns and Charlie Johnson of the Cards hit for two. ' A three-yard smash by Perry Lee Dunn provided the winning points for Dallas as it offset a final-quarter 36 - yard scoring pass from Ed Brown to Gary Ballman. Brown passed for both Pittsburgh scores, the first one traveling three yards to Dick Hoak. Dick Van Raap- horst botted a key 10-yard field goal for the Cowboys. Milt Plum threw touchdown passes of 64 and 82 yards to Jim Gibbons and Tommy Watkins added a 68-yard punt're­ turn for a score as Detroit whipped the Forty Niners. The lone San Francisco touchdown came on a 13-yard pass from John Brodie to Dave Parks. National Football League Final By United Press International Eastern Division W. L. T. Pet.

Five Major Prep Quintets Bite The Dust By KURT FiREUDEWTHAL - United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)—Indiana's high school basketball clubs headed into the final full week of action before the winter holiday break today with East Chicago Washington battling Anderson in the "game of the week." The two inter-sectional powers are among only 13 major un- beatens that survived a number of form reversals last week. Five major quintets bit the dust for the first time Saturday, including "Big Ten" members South Bend Washington, Columbus and Tipton. The South Benders, No. 1 in last week's UPI coaches' board ratings, lost a Northern Conference scrap at Fort Wayne North, 60-56; seventh rated Columbus was beaten for the first time in 48 regular season games at undefeated Indianapolis Manual, 79-71, and Tipton, No. 9, was upended at home by Frankfort; 72-63. After two consecutive unbeaten regular seasons and a state tourney finals berth last March, Columbus lost its first season game since February of 1962. Manual, in the UPI's second ten last week, outscored the Bulldogs 21-11 in the final period for the victory which was sparked by Mike Hargraves' 25 points. Other first time losers were Elkhart and Evansville Boose. Marion edged Elkhart in an overtime thriller, 76-74, and Huntingburg axed Bosse in the Southern Conference 8-58. Second rated Kokomo, 76-67 winner from South Bend Central Saturday, leads the major teams with a .seven-game winning streak. Brazil and Washington are six-game winners. Five-game, winners are top- ranking Gary Roosevelt, Manual and Washington of Indianapolis, Elwood, Anderson, and Harrison and Rex Mundi of Evansville. Terre Haute Garfield, Evansville Memorial and East Chicago Washington have won their first four starts. Columbus, now 5-1, hopes to rebound at the expense of South Central Conference foes Franklin Tuesday and Martinsville Friday. Tops in the SIAC are .Rex Mundi against Evansville Mater •Dei Thursday and Evansville Central at Washington Friday. Upstate, major games Friday include Fort Wayne North, at LaPorte,' Riley-Washington in South Bend and Valparaiso at Gary Froebel, while Gary Roosevelt is at South Bend Central and Hammond at Michigan City Saturday. Other top games include Garfield at Wiley in Terre Haute Wednesday, Attucks at Tech in Indianapolis Friday and New Castle at Elwood, Kokomo at Fort Wayne North and Southport at Indianapolis Washington Saturday. Fifth-rated Indianapolis Washington dumped previously unbeaten Warren Central Saturday, 71-53. Frankfort Winner of Against Blue Devils Port Chns^ I JLDOWN now... and Santa can COME UP with the proudest of gifts— ANEW BULOVA Layaway now—while our selections are complete- before the rush begins! Two bubbles broke Saturday night. One was labeled UPI No. 9, the other AP No. 4. Both belonged to Tipton and it was Frankfort which broke them as the Hot Dogs jumped off to a 6-0 lead and played a front-runners game all the way to defeat the Blue Devils 72-63 despite the preponderantly Tipton crowd. Frankfort, which entered the game on a 3-3 record, had just taken the measure of previously undefeated NCC rival Logansport, the night before and the win over the Satans gave them a 4-3 record. For Tipton it was the first loss in five outings. Tried Last Quarter The Hot Dogs were undeniably fired up for the game, while Tipton never did show any spark until the final period when they whittled the Frankfort lead from 16 points down to five in a drive that had the Hot Dogs about to burst their skins, but by then the Blue Devils were racing the clock and had to get possession. Their attempts to do that re suited in fouls which Frankfort converted into points with almost automatic regularity and at the finish had ballooned into its nine point margin. Frankfort admittedly was trying to play out the clock in the last eight minutes counting on the 16 points with which they started the period to hold up, and only four times in the period did they shoot for field goals but with Tipton's press harrying the Dogs, only one shot dropped through. The Satan personals, however, allowed the visitors to drop 12 of 15 charity tosses into the basket in that last quarter and that was too much to overcome. Led Some Departments The score belled many statistics of the game, however, and coach Dick Barr, thoroughly disappointed at the outcome, said "it's up to the kids now, how they come back. Mentally they weren't right for this one, but while disappointed • I'm far from discouraged. The films of last night's game (against Wabash) and of tonight's, will show them how far off some of them were . . . what they've got to work on. If each boy works on his weak points this can still be the team everyone expected. They've lost their rating, but against Frankfort they didn't deserve it, with a couple of exceptions. The material is there and I know if the boys want to, they can fight their way back." The statistics showed that Tipton had 21 more shots than Frankfort. They also outrebound- ed the visitors 33 to 23, although the Hot Dogs had a 16-13 edge on the defensive board with Tip ton in front on the offensive board where they should have gotten the points, 20 to 7 . Boyd Looked Good Coach Barr felt that Lex Boyd played a great game and had the others displayed his fulltime effort Tipton would have won going away. Boyd not only sparked the scoring with 19 points, his season high, but he took the shots when he 'should have, something the others weren't doing, and he played his deffensive position well. He was also the team's second leading rebounder with eight, five on the offensive board. The rebounding was led by Bill Moore with 10, eight coming on the defensive board. Moore also led in defensive statistics with three held balls, two recoveries Senator The executive took- top level In performance but not In price. 17 Jewels, mock-re sistant. $33.7$ You'll h.~ —oiid to give o '. that BuJova Difference! TIPTON, INDIANA FOR REAL ESTATE & INSURANCE CONSULT ice gRcte 120 South West St. and five assists. But oh offense, Moore took only four shots, hitting one, and with two of four] shooting at the foul line wound up the night with foiir points. Smith Played Well Keith Smith played a good all- around game although his field goal shooting was only 3 for 12, leading the team in offensive rebounds with seven, none on the defensive board, .having no bad passes, no violations and only one fumble wjhile- defensively gaining four held balls and one recovery. Teamwise, Frankfort's .500 shooting had a lot to do with the outcome, hitting 24 of 48 at- temps but Barr pointed out that a large part of- this was in Tipton's defense losing their man| and letting him get the good shot under the basket. Tipton had five bad passes, three charged to Danny Crouch, one each to Moore and Curnutt. In violations it was Crouch with three and Boyd with two, while there were four fumbles charged, one each against Curnutt, Smith, Crouch and Hannah. Percentage Low • From the floor Tipton hit just 23 of 69 for a .333 percentage, not good enough to win most games, certainly, not against .500 shooting. In this department was Harmon' with 2 of 4; Curnutt 5jof 20; Meyers 2 of 2; Smith 3 of 12; Crouch 3 of 10; Boyd 7 of'15; Moore 1 of 4 and Hannah 0 of 2. Despite 21 more shots than Frankfort, Tipton got one less basket. Frankfort got eight more shots at the foul line hitting 24 of 32 for a .750 percentage, while Tipton hit only 17 zi Z\ for a .708 percentage. Tipton's B-team played a nip and tuck affair, winning its fourth against one loss 25-24 when Frankfort missed a chance to win it at the foul line at the end of the game. Baylor Back; Lakers Win By United Press International Elgin Baylor is back in the?] lineup and the Los Angeles Lakers are back on the road to' victories. After missing . three of the Lakers' last»four" games, Baylor joined the club Sunday night and played "one of his better ball games" pf the season in leading the team to 116115 victory over' the Detroit Pistons. In the only other National Basketball Association game Sunday night, veteran Hal Greer led the Philadelphia 76ers to a 121-115 come-from behind victory over the hapless New York Knickerbockers. ' , The Lakers, who had a 15-point lead early in the third quarter before hitting a ' cold streak, were played to a 114114 tie with-just 30 seconds left in the game. •However, Jerry West dropped in two free throws to bring the game out for the Lakers. Big Ray Scott led the Pistons scoring with 23 points while Eddie Miles was a point behind. The last place Knickerbockers of the Eastern division, - held a seven-point lead going' into the final period against the 76ers but Greer, who usually does well against the Knicks, hit accurately both from the field and free throw line to catch up. Greer led all scorers with 34 points, 16 recorded from free throws. Len Chappell had one of his best nights of the season for the Knicks and led them with 26 points.

By FRED MCMANE UPI Sports Writer There's* going .to be quite a scramble for the • number one rating among major college basketball teams this season if Saturday night's performances are any indication of things to come. No less than four of the nation 's top 10 ranked teams went down to defeat and three of. these were among the top five. The three which fell hardest were number-one ranked Michi- _ gan which lost to Nebraska,_ 73-73; second-ranked Vanderbilt* which fell victim to Virginia Tech, 69-64; and fourth place St. Louis which was toppled by Missouri, 62-56. Third-ranked Wichita took advantage of the failures of its rivals by downing ninth-ranked Brigham Young, 81-65, to make a strong bid for the number one ranking. San Francisco, Duke, UCLA and Kentucky also increased their status among the top 10 by scoring victories. The Dons tripped California, 65-55; Duke ripped South Carolina, 111-72; the Bruins beat Oklahoma State, 68-52, and the Wildcats trounced Syracuse, 110-77. Desperation Shot < Wins Michigan, the pre-season favorite to grab court laurels, had its winning streak stopped at four on a last-second desperation shot by sophomore guard Fred Hare. After fighting back from a 14-point deficit, the Cornhuskers trailed by only one point with 58 seconds to go and decided to freeze the ball for the final shot. With eight seconds remaining Hare let go with a jumper which bounced high off the rim and back into his waiting arms. Then, with his back to the basket, he tossed the ball up and in. Vanderbilt was humiliated by a Virginia Tech team which hadn't won a game, in three previous tries. Vanderbilt, which entered the clash with a 3-0 record, grabbed an early lead but nine minutes before halltime, Pat Moriarty hit on seven of eight shots to give Tech a 32-29 lead at the break. The Commodores pulled ahead by two points. briefly in the second half, but Moriarty and, teammate John Wetzel proved' too much to handle in the long| rung. Wetzel ended up with 18) points while Moriarty scored 17.'| Wichita Sweeps Two All-Anjerican Dave Stallworth; carried 'Wichita to victory over: Brigham Young with 26 points! to give the Shockers a two-) game sweep of the Cougars.
