" You're asking us to crawl way out on the Hickory Stick, podner. Since you asked us to do just that, we'll mention a whole gob of 'em: V Terre Haute Gerstmeyer, Jeffersonville, Greensburg, Milan, Muncie Burns, South Bend Central, Attucks, Muncie Central, Logansport, Elwood, Washington's coming, Indianapolis Tech's no push- .over, Anderson needs more all-around scoring ability, and Fort Wayne has three fine clubs in North Side, South Side and Central. Some of the better small high school teams in this sector are: Middletown, Daleville, Mississinewa, Yorktown, Fortville and Eden. " . · ' . . · · * . * ANDERSON GETS 500 TICKETS Anderson will receive 500 tickets as its visiting team's share of ducats for the Indian-Green Wave at Tech's big gym next Friday night, reports Dave Barrow, AHS acting ticket agent. If the Indian followers get the Tech d,ucats in time, they may be placed on sale, at tonight's Bear-Redskin Wigwam party, otherwise they'll be offered over the counter of the AHS ticket office from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (as long as the things last). Coach Loren Joseph, -who stepped into the big shoes vacated by the elevation of Frank Barnes to the Shelbyville High School athletic directorship, has his problems with the Golden Bears*He has three players, Wilson, Cowherd and Brown who generally start . nearly every game, but his enigma is picking the other forward and guard. He has four boys, McNew, Cole, Mullen and Mitchell, from which to select the remaining Golden Bear starters. SPECIALIZE IN SLOW BREAK Some Anderson fans may get a bang out of the Anderson- Shelbyville short pants performers' performance tonight in the Wigwam. The present generation may not recognize the Golden Bears' specialty -- the delayed offense -- when they stack-up against the Indian five. Our modern version of basketball, meaning the souped-up variety that results in high-scoring games, has come into favor with a lot of bleacher'bugs. Shelbyville players, using a 2-out and 3-in brand, pass the ball around until its players get a reasonably good snot at the hoop. Devotees of the old-fashioned game -- dribble, pass and shoot when you get a blamed good shot -- should enjoy tonight's Bear-Indian hardwood party, * 4 + NEED MORE PUNCH There is one high school varsity cage team that two-fifths of it think the other three players, meaning two forwards and the center, should score about 60 points. Let's divide this scoring business up and carry our part of the point making, eh guards? New Plan Will Save Pupils Time Off From School INDIANAPOLIS Of--This year's Indiana high school basketball tournament will be run off with less interference with school time than ever before, despite anguished comments of vacation-minded pupils. ·Commissioner L. V. Phillips of the IHSAA; in announcing the sectional tourney plans Monday, said the Board of Control has revised the sectional schedules so ,as to conserve as much school time as possible. "We'll probably be unpopular with the kids," said the commissioner, "but we will have met the objections of school officials who have complained that the tourneys took up too much school time." Phillips pointed out that at 2J centers to which 8, 9, 10 and 1] teams are. assigned, no games will be played on school time. In 25 other tourneys only one- half day of school time will be used. Only in 10 other tourneys those to which 15 or 16 teams are assigned, will games be scheduled both in the morning and afternoon of a school day.

The Anderson-Shelbyville affair will be one of the many interesting games on an 11- game schedule of Madison county's nine high school quintets this week. The Redstins, shorn of their Big Four New Year's Tournament crown when ousted by New Castle in the first round of the Kokomo event, gamed some measure of satisfaction by kicking t h e daylights out of Kokomo's Wildcats for third-place consolation honors. The score was. Anderson 76, Kokomo 52. The Tribesmen are called upon to battle a team that specializes in t h e delayed offense tonight. The Shelbys haven't scored over 49 points in a single game this winter and that was their biggest total against Franklin. The Golden Bears' overall mark is 4 wins and 7 setsbacks, one of them being coming at the hands of the Franklin Grizzles" who had 56 points when the Bears put on their best scoring punch.

Elwood will be at home sectional tourney centers this year These shifts involve: Attica to Covington, Martinsville to Bloom ington, Bluffton to Ossian, Rock ville to Clinton, Goshen to Nap panee, Vevay to Lawrenceburg Monticello to Wolcott, Oxford to Otterbein and Rochester to Winamac. There are four shifts in regionals as follows: Bedford to Jefferson ville, Bloomington to Martinsville, Covington to Greencastle and Vin^ cennes to Huntingburg. There have been no changes in main at Bloomington, Fort Wayne Indianapolis and Lafayette. Phillips said it now appears there will be 751 schools in this year's tournament, four less than last year and the smallest number since 1929 when 754 competed. Consolidations have led to the decline. Changes in assignments of school concern the Bedford, -Jeffersorivill and New Albany sectionals. Campbellsburg was transferred from Bedford to Jeffersonville; Leavenworth, Marengo and Milltown from Jeffersronville to New Albany; and Paoli was moved from New Albany to Bedford. This places all the school in Clark and Washington Counties at Jeffersonville and all the schools in Crawford, Floyd and Harrison counties at New Albany.

The bat, made of pieces of hickory and ash and put together by a special laminating process and manufactured by a Chattanooga, Tenn., company will not split as easily as other bats, they claim. Corbett and Beck played baseball in this city shortly after the turn of the century, the former being a prominet scout and resides in Van Nuys, Calif., while the latter is general manager of the Chattanooga (Tenn.)
