PAGE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Tuesday, Dec. 15, ,1964 Cassie Capitalizes On Stall worth Error By BRED DOWN UP I Spirts Writer It came down to a battle between two stars — and Cazzie Eussell won over Dave Stallworth. That, plus the old axiom that when planning a basketball trip it's best to think twice and then , not make it, is the story of Monday night's meeting between Wichita and Michigan— the nation's first- and second- ranked college basketball teams respectively. The final score was Michigan 87, Wichita 85 because in the final frantic moments Stallworth committed a misplay and Eussell took advantage of it to make a game-winning 30-foot clutch shot. • - Wichita's first loss of the season after four consecutive victories also "constituted the worst •blow travel-conscious airlines and railroads have suffered since Bobo (Suitcase) Newsom quit baseballs It rounded out a 72-hour period during which four of the nation's top-ranked teams—Wichita, Michigan, Vanderbilt and St. Louis—all suffered their first defeats of the season on the road.

Then came : Stallworth's misplay and Russell's great play. With.four seconds left, Stallworth bounced the ball out of bounds off his foot and Michigan took the ball It was passed downcourt to Eussell .and the 6-foot, 6-inch All-America candidate got off a 30-foot shot that went through the cords as the game-ending whistle wounded.

The 34-year-old Philadelphian, who kept his middleweight crown with a -15-round decision over Rubin (Hurricane) Carter Monday night, like to tell everyone about his private "20- year plan." He has been fighting 17 years already and claims he'd like to go on for three more. That's what he says out loud. When he's with his wife, Rosalie, and three sons, however, he thinks differently. He knows the years are catching up with him and he may be hard pressed to go three more. Moments after beating Carter at Convention Hall, Giardello let the cat out of the bag when he instinctively replied to a question about whether he would have quit had he lost. Hard To Say "It's a hard thing to say right now," said the suddenly thoughtful champion.. "Maybe, if I'd have , lost, I might have. . ." He never finished the sentence, then suddenly started a new one. "But I won. . . I won. . .and you never think about that when you win." Giardello knows there are few worlds left for him to conquer in ' the middleweight ranks. He couldn't even think of a logical challenger for his title right J off. "Maybe if (Dick) Tiger and (Joey) Archer fight, I'd fight the winner ' somewhere," he said, after thinking it oyer for some time." I don't know who the logical challenger would be." Giardello was no ball of fire even in winning Monday night. At the end, in fact, he looked more. like the loser than the winner. Lumps Under Eyes There were huge lumps underneath both his eyes, a bruise on the left side of his jaw and cuts on both sides of his face. Carter, on the other hand, was unmarked. He said he felt he could go 15 more rounds and looked it, too. . Both fighters felt they had won. • "I thought I lost only three rounds at most," said Giardel- at Conference Lead Game Fri< TEAM Peru Tipton' Elwood CONFERENCE CIC ALL-G 2-0 , .4-1 2-0 -4-1 1-0 • 5-0 STANDINGS Hartford City 1-1 2-4 Wabash 1-1 2-4 Huntington 0-1 3-1 Burris 0-1 3-2 Alexandria 0-1 3-3 Elwood captured "the big game" in last week's play and although currently third in the conference standings by reason of having played the fewest CIC contests, has stamped itself definitely as the club to beat. Heading into the final week of pre-holiday games, the Peru-Tipton- contest Friday night at Tipton shapes up as "game of the week" and the Tigers led by the tallest player in the CIC, Mike Eikenberry, have to be rated favorite on the hasis of a four game winning streak and a record marred only toy an opening loss to Marion. The victor of this game will take over undisputed lead in the conference standings while the loser will drop into third place behind Elwood which has only two non-conference outings before heading into tournament competition. The game will also match the two conference scoring leaders, Tipton's Donnie Curnutt who has a 25.2 average after five games and Eikenberry whose 21.6 in the same number of contests ranks second.

Well, those kind of friends the Blue Devils can do without. Most right thinking basketball followers of the Blue Devils realize the Saturday night loss to IFrankfort was ... or could be a blessing in disquise. Many fans told us before the season started that they hoped the Satans didn't roll up any such victory string as the team acquired last year. Now, they at least should be satisfied. Need Lots of Work Coach Dick Barr himself, talking to newsmen after Tipton's early wins, admitted the team wasn't as far along as it was this time a year ago. Personally, we don't know if it ever will be. As we said long before the season started, normal improvement was to be expected out of Tipton's three returned starters, Don Curnutt, Bill Moore and Dan CrOuch. But we couldn't look along last year's bench and find two boys capable at the start of the season of stepping right in where Dick Mcintosh and Harvey Harmon left off. Far from it. Rating Too Earl/ Perhaps by the end of the season . . . working hard and playing teamwork on both offense and defense . . .those shoes can be filled. And that is where the Frankfort loss comes in handy. The boys certainly realize now that that lofty rating which came their way last week was to say the least, a bit premature . . . based largely on the prestige the team acquired last year and the fact that it had three returned starters. But those two departed starters represent 45.2 points per game. They also represent a whale of a lot of defense . '. . and to our mind the latter is the biggest item on which their two replacements are going to have to work. Team Can Score The offenisive punch is, there. Even though Tipton hasn't played the likes of Gary Roosevelt, Kokomo, etc., the team is averaging right on 80 points per game, and that offense can be sharpened. Having now lost to a team that came into the Tipton game with only a 3-3 record, there is no reason for any of the kids to have their heads in the clouds ... a situation which might very well, have existed from the listless fashion in which some of them took the floor Saturday night. Study Mistakes The boys know now that they have to work, and if they wonder why coach Barr gets on them in practice, or yanks them from the lineup when they feel they are doing a good job, they can look at the game films and quickly find out what they"re- doing wrong . . . which one oflhem is letting his man slip around him for easy baskets that makes the shooting percentage' look so fantastic.' The "press" is such a strong defense that it is practically an offense, and those that say it is no longer effective because Tipton used it so much last year, should watch Elwood using it this year. It is still a great weapon but it takes more than one man to, apply it Just Need Practice We think coach Barr was perfectly right when he said the team isn't as far along as it was a year ago.. It really hasn't' started to jell' yet as a, team. Practice and additional games will solve that or should as long as the boys try to work together, familiarize themselves with each other's moves and learn to anticipate what each of their teammates is going to do under given conditions. The team has not quite reached that point yet, but it can with hard work. Now that they realize they can't pick out in advance the team they need to play hard against and the team they can take it easy on, the improvement in their • play should start to show. ' Looking Ahead The Frankfort game was just the start of the tough side of the Tipton schedule; Coming up this week are two toughies, Peru Friday night and the trip to Carmel Saturday .. . and speaking of Carmel, coach Barr had this to say about Carmel's loss Saturday by one point to Noblesville on a field goal by Eddie Grissom with seven seconds left on the clock . . . You've got to give it to the Millers . . . they have got confidence. They KNOW they're going to win." Disregard Height This Friday Tipton is going to host a BIG' Peru team. Center Mike Eikenberry is listed by coach Bob Biddle as 6 4". The Peru sports editor admits big Mike is close to 6' 6Vi". Ken Day at forward is listed as 6' 2". We watched him run cross country last Fall to build up his legs and when we saw his size we asked Biddle incredulousiy, who's THAT. We"ll bet that when they stand side by side, Day's as big in every way as Bill Moore. So forget the lineup we listed in the Tribune Thursday. Tipton will be against a big team Friday night. A team which at this writing has won four in a row and gets another test tonight against Logansport. No matter how it does with the Berries, Peru knows that the conference outcome might very well hinge on the outcome of Fridays' game between the two conference leaders. ..Friday night,, not last Saturday, is the game the Blue Devils had better be up for.

'•'li ii i •::): ' ADVKKTISKMKXT ' Karen Sends Her Love Whatever happened to Karen, the girl whose fight against cerebral palsy stirred emotions throughout the world some dozen years ago? Did she ever grow up, in the face of a doctor's advice to her parents to "take her to an institution and leave her and forget you ever had her"? And what kind of adult could Karen possibly be? Her true story, told by her mother, Marie Killilea, in the best-selling "Karen", of the most widely-read books of the decade. As a hardcover, it sold over 100,000 copies, and as a paperback has gone into six printings. It attracted millions in a Reader's Digest condensation, and an excerpt in the Ladies Home Journal received more reader response than any other piece in that magazine's history. Published in ten different i - languages, the story of this freckle-faced pig-tailed girl's fight for a productive life won two Christopher Awards and the Golden Book Award. Re-written for young people, it appeared as a juvenile under the title of "Wren". And before TV millions, Marie Killilea, who co-founded the national cerebral palsy foundation, appeared on "This Is Your .Life". The response was overwhelming in another sense. More than.27,000 letters from all over the world poured into the Killilea household, an avalanche which still continues. AIL in one way or another, asked the question: "What has happened to Karen and her family since "Karen' was published"? After answering some 14,000 of them, Marie Killilea finally decided that there was only one way to properly reply to all of her daughter's well-wishers: write a sequel to "Karen". The result: "With Love from Karen", a kind of long, long letter to the world, Jhat describes thiVgafs' following. Karen's courageous emer 1 -' gence into "adolescence."
