Coach Bill Shepherd expressed do'-'bt at mid-week as to how his foung Greyhounds would respond this weekend to their heartbreaking loss last Saturday to Noblesville. "They wanted that game awfully bad and right now they're a pretty de jected bunch of kids. The loss hurt . . . there's no question about it. They led most of the way and to have the game taken out of their hands with seven seconds left was a bitter/blow! Even then they didn't give up, but with time running out young Bill (the coach's son) had to let fly with a long one. It caught the rim but bounced out and the game was over. He felt pretty 'bad about it . . . they all did." Another Big Foe But boys are pretty resilient. A lot can 'be forgotten in a week and with the reminder that they'll have another crack at Noblesville in the Sectional, coach Bill Shepherd should have no trouble pulling them out of the doldrums and firing them up for another Sectional contestant. Despite the fact that.there's one junior and one freshman on the starting five, this is just possibly the best team of Greyhounds .that Shepherd has ever floored True they've dropped two straight games since earning the rating of the 30th best team, in the state, but one of them was , to an undefeated Zionsville club in a battle of un- beatens, and the other was to always tough Noblesville which hadn't lost to a Carmel team in 11 years. Not Related The Greyhounds' two big boys are Dave Edwards, a 6' 3" sen- tor, and Jack Edwards, also 6'3V and a junior. The boys are no relation. The other bay. who teams with Dave "Edwards 7 Is Mike Wiggins, short for the battle of the" boards but a lad who nailed down the post by beatif* out bigger fellows with speed and positioning.

The men are to bring a 50 cent gift exchange for a man and the women to bring a 50 cent gift for a lady. Pickard Birthday club was entertained for their Christmas party in the home of Mrs; Herman Pickard recently. A pitch- in dinner was enjoyed at the noon hour. Highlight of the social hour was an exchang of gifts. The January meeting will be with Mrs. Judy Marcum. -Mrs. Jennie Wood attended the Woods family Christmas party on Sunday at Sheridan Community house. Harold Boyer, who has been ill for several weeks, is sldwly improving. the team are Scott 'McKinney, a senior guard who stands 5'9V4" and young Bill Shepherd who is 5' 7". Worth Watching In their seven outinss' McKinney has scored 127 points for a '18.2 average whUe Shepherd has totalled 90 for a 12.9 average, and the latter, for a freshman, is doing mighty good. Rival coaches who have watched the Shepherd boy predict future stardom. Practically born with , a basketball in his hands, he exercises perfect command over the roundball and he's getting his baptismal experience with the older ihoys now. In summer league play against kids his own age he stood out head and shoulders over the rest and though eivin? away a lot of years and experience now in varsity competition, ability-wise he's more than holding, his own. It is going to take a mighty, capable guard to hold him in tow although he's just as content to set his teammates up with baskets as he is to sink them himself. Same Lineup Tipton coach Dick Barr anticipated no change from the lineup which he's sending into action against Peru tonight, although he indicated that the starting unit was subject to change in the event any of tonight's starters came up with an unsatisfactory performance. He's got the bench now to make that threat stick and knowing it, the starters should be hustling their heads off against the Tigers in today's CIC tilt.

A very welcome Christina* card in yesterday's mail reads "Looking, forward to seeing you up here\during the .holidays. It's "open house", here. Hope J can get tickets to see the games. .Hope you are • doing real well. Best to you ... Virginia Weger." We'll bet; one .thing. Virginia will get a ticket if she has to sit with us at the press bench. We know-all "Mrs. Weger's friends will want to take time to look her up and say' hello while in Hammond for the holiday tourney.• ' Just A Suggestion A number of fans may not have noticed it, or may have forgotten, but one. thing that today stands out more lividly than even Tipton's defeat in the Sectional last year was that when Tipton's state-rated Blue Devils took the floor that afternoon for their semi-final .game against Noblesville, the entire Carmel cheering section 'rose to its feet and applauded the'boys as they entered the gym. That token of Irecognition is something this Sideliner will never forget," and we hope that tomorrow night, despite the fact that the Blue Devils will be battling bitterly to win the game, the Tipton fans will remember that fine sporting gesture from the Carmel fans 'last February and return the compliment. This is a mighty fine Carmel team on top of everything- else, so a good hand will be well deserved. Darlings of Island University of Hawaii's varsity isn't capturing any headlines but latest word from the Honolulu press, which has practically adopted the team has it that the U.H. freshmen are taking the Island by storm. In their latest game, playing a service club that included four big time college stars, the Hawaiian frosh .scored a tremendous victory with Tipton's Harvey Harmon leading the way -on 24 points. His freshman buddy Bruce O'Niel, a 6'6" lad from Oregon added 18 and the other of-the three scholarship imports which coach Red Rocha was able to recruit this year, a Chicago boy, had 17. The Honolulu newspapers are already starting to talk about what they'll have next year when the three are eligible for the varsity, and by the,'time they are-juniors, with Red. Rocha noiv'having the "go-ahead" for additfonal scholarships after his success with these three, the University will be mingling in the big time. Harvey will arrive home .Sunday afternoon and will be here long enough to take in the holiday tourney at Hammond. We know his Blue Devil buddies will sure be glad to see him. , Pure Rubbish ' A neighboring scribe apparently running out ol copy material because his own team is idle tonight, grasped -at a straw to fill one paragraph by speculating that there is "dissension" on the Tipton ball club. That is pure and simple poppycock. These Tipton kids are everyone of them smart kids. They're all good friends and they know that individualism never lead any team to victory. Because Donnie Curnutt was held to 13 and 12 points respectively by Wabash and Frankfort, the writer implies that his teammates didn't try to get the. ball to him or help him get a shot. He didn't witness either one of those games. When an opposing coach sends three players out to block one shooter, the boy isn't going to get very much of a chance to get off the good shot, and that is just exactly what Wabash was doing to - Curnutt who several times was trapped at the edge of the floor with no place to go except out of bounds, way to get the. ball through six bands and legs - to one of bis teammates. -.- In the Frankfort game Donnie got 20; shots, not perhaps as coach Barr would like to 'see;'.him- taking, and being pressed hard, a couple that he got,off were of the forced variety, not good shots, but the nights will be few and far between when Donnie hits only five of 20. And Donnie passes off to teammates' as much as he shoots. That writer will be in the stands tonight to see for him self,- and we'll assure the fans now that he won't find any signs of dissension. Because of the importance of this game in the conference standings, a whale of a crowd will be on hand, and the crowd will be swelled by several out of town sportswriters covering the tilt, including Bob Hammel, who was the originator of the Central Indiana Conference Sports Writers Association during his tenure on the Huntington Herald Press. Bob's now doing his jottings for the Morning Times in Kokomo but still retains a sentimental spot for the CIC. B-Team Tourney Windfall's Dragons step up •a notch' in class when their B- team takes part in a tournament . tomorrow at Logansport A four-game affair, it will see the Dragon B-teamers meeting Twin Lakes (a Monticello school consolidation) at 12:30 noon, after which the home town Berry B-team meets Rensselaer. The afternoon losers will meet for consolation honors at 6:30 p.m. and the title game will be played at 7:45. Coach Jim Stewart who handles the yqjjng Dragons lists Stan Conway, Randy Bryan, Larry McElfresh, Gayle Barr and Steve Eltzroth as his starters, with Troy Heath and Danny Mc Elfresh as certain to see action. The tourney ithould attract a lot of Windfall followers inte rested in future varsity material, Stewart, admits the competition is a bit tougher than what the B-teamers have been meeting but wants to :see what the boys can dp in that kind of company.
