True, the Bronchos dropped four of thenr first half a dozen games, but they licked arch­ rival Frankfort in a. North Central Conference scrap Wednesday night, 88-73, and on "enemy" territory, at that. The champs hit a hot streak and led by seven points late in the second period before Frankfort took a 41-40 half time lead. But Lafayette was back out in front at the third stop, 59 to 56, and pulled away in the last period. Just to show this is a typical topsy • - turvy season, it was Frankfort that spilled Tipton from the perfect ranks last Saturday, 72-63, at Tipton. ' . Steve Kirkpatrick led Lafayette, with 26 points and Roger Kirts added 21. Dan Davis was high' for 'Frankfort with 21'. Elsewhere, Knightstown Memorial snapped a 37-game losing streak with a 61-58 triumph over Carthage. The long string included eight losses this season, but it was far from the all- time state record which belongs to. Jackson Twp. of Porter County, which once lost 65 games in a row.

The Hawks got fine scoring efforts from Zelmo Beaty, Charley Vaughn and Bill Bridges Wednesday night to down the New York Knickerbockers 117103, and this trio has suddenly given the Hawks new hope for the future. Beaty, a 6-feet-9 center, netted a pair of key baskets early in the fourth period to break open a close battle and lift the Hawks to a comfortable lead. He tallied 22 points in the contest while Vaughn and Bridges added 19 each. Jim Barnes and Len Chappell shared New York scoring honors with 20 points apiece. The Hawks were unable to pick up any ground on the Los Angeles Lakers, however, as the Lakers scored a 126-120 overtime victory over the Detroit Pistons. Detroit came from four points behind with only four seconds remaining to'knot the score Ill- Ill in regulation time, but Jerry West and Elgin Baylor got the Lakers a quick lead in the overtime period and Los Angeles held it to win.

Eikenberry had i8 in that one including seven field goals and four of five from the foul line. And Coach Bob Biddle has great bench strength too this time around with 6' 0 senior Gayle Bomar, the 180 pound quarterback, and Bob Rockenbaugh, a good six-footer who weighs nearly 200 now in harness after a football injury. Other relivers are 6'2" senior Ralph Danielson at 175 pounds, Dennis Hunt, a 6' 2" 165- pound junior and Jerry Yentes, 6' 2" and 175 senior. Kenny Day has not to date been a high scorer, although he hit 13 points in the Tigers victory over Hartford City, but at 6' 4" and 185, he's a very rugged offensive-board rebounder who is going to give Keith Smith, spotting him a three-inch height advantage, a real problem. The Tiger guard; are not big, but they're fast. And both can hurt you as Tom Hays showed with 19 points against big Marion. Bomar, who had 10 in a relief role against Alexandria, can also pop that ball into the bucket. Coach (Barr is hoping for a better defensive effort against Peru than his 'boys showed against Frankfort ... or a better all-around effort. In most of the games, the fcoys who have shown well on defense have failed to score, while the lead-- ing scorers have shown no defense worthy of the name. A little improvement toy each in their weak departments is what the coach is hoping for'in this one jmd he feels that the boys realize the importance of this game and are ready for their best efforts. heart-breaking overtime loss to Logansport Tuesday after lead ing for all but the final seconds on the Berries' home court, in vade Tipton Friday night looking for a quick recovery from that setback, in a battle that will give the winner undisputed pos session of the conference lead and dump the loser into third place behind Elwood. The Blue Devils are equally determined, after an unexpected loss on their own court to visiting Frankfort last week but know they are facing an even tougher foe in the visiting Ben gals. ' Coach Bob Biddle's boys have always* been tough for Tipton to handle. Four years ago, whan Ben Hobbs and Jim Long were the only seniors starting while Wally Murray and 'Mike Baker were juniors and Dick Mcintosh was starting his varsity career as a sophomore, The Blue Devils won but had to battle all the way for a seven point victory, 65-58. Murray tallied 20 points, Mcintosh 15, Hobbs 13 Baker 12 and Long 4 in that'one while Bill Gossard had one to round out the scoring. A year later the Bengals re versed things, handing Tipton a stunning 58-54 loss just prior to the holiday tourney that ended a five-game winning string. Mur ray, in his senior year had 28 for Tipton that night but it was not enough as Baker scored only 8, as did Bill Moore, while Mc- Ihtosh was held to six and Harvey Harmon got four. Last year, with coach Barr's team already having seven victories under their belt, the Sa tans had to fight all the way for an 89-77 victory that was close until the last minutes. In that one Mcintosh with 35 was Tipton's leader while Harmon had 19, Curnutt 14, Smith 12, Moore and Crouch, Butch Meyers, and Van Horn each had two. Their big headache that night came from a tall young junior named Mike Eikenberry who, guarded by Harmon, pumped 37 points through the hoop. And Eikenberry will be back Friday to continue his assault on the Tipton baskets. This time coach Barr has assigned Lex Boyd the job of stopping the big fellow who will have four-inch height advantage on Boyd. And the Bengals have been strengthened this season E Give her the best A WATCH BRACELET POSTPONED HEARING WASHINGTON (UPI) — A State Department hearing on charges against security officer Otto F. Otepka has been postponed until Feb. 9. A department spokesman said the hearing, scheduled to start today, had been postponed at the' request of Otepfca's •attorneys to give them more time to prepare their case. Otepka is charged with giving -. secret personnel information to the Senate- internal security subcommittee in defiance of regulations. BY HAM RKi 4. Dick Barr sounded full of the old "vinegar" when we talked with him yesterday on how his boys were reacting to the Frankfort loss. "The kids are working real hard, their spirit's good and we all feel that these two games will make us a nice Christmas present to take into the holiday tourney." Scouted Peru "Peru looked real good, last night'", Barr said after scouting the Bengals in their two-point overtime loss on the Berries' floor . . '•. "And playing Logansport on their own floor is about as tough as trying to beat Elwood in its own gym," Barr added. He said he was real impressed with Rick Inniger, the 6'1" forward who transferred to Peru this season after leading Berne in scoring last year, "He's a real hustler and a fine ball player." "Who you going to put on their big boy" (6'6M>" Mike Eikenberry) we asked Barr and he replied he was going to assign the job of stopping the outside hot-shot to Lex Boyd. "And how about Inniger, you going to put Smitty on him?" "No," Barr replied, "I'm going to put Moore on him." We commented that it would be a real challenge to both the Tipton boys and Barr allowed that it would but said that if they do the job they are capable of, he thinks all the Tipton faris will be satisfied. "They're just kids, and all we can ask them to do is their best, but I'm sure the way they're reacting now that they want this one even more than the fans. It should be a good game, anyway, for Peru's a good ball club." Two Tough Teams 'We've got a real tough weekend ahead of. us. Carmel has one of its greatest teams and after having its own victory string broken, will toe trying to get back in the saddle against us. We'll have our hands full," Barr concluded. Tourney Tickets Tickets for the holiday tournament will be put on sale "at one of the downtown locations next week ... in all probability, just"at Carneys, since too many tickets haven't been given us in advance by Hammond authorities.
