'i "Little" refers only to., enrollments that are a little light. for football. Some of their basketball teams are big enough to bob for apples without picking 'em first. Bunker Hill, the Peru sectional winner last spring, -will have 6- foot-9 Gary Brown in u n iform again when it opens the new campaign at Rossville Tuesday night. He weighs a mere 250 pounds. Missing, however, will be big Jeff Blue of Bainbridge r one of last season's standouts regardless of school size, when Ed Longfellow starts a rebuilt team against ' Roachdale. Blue is at Butter U. Last year's state scoring champion,, another smaller school product, is back. Marion Pierce, who averaged 36.2 points last season, will be in the Lewisville. lineup Friday night, at Mooreland. He'-s ,6-4!/ 2 . Bloomfield, the Wabash Valley champion and ranked No. 16 in the state for the 1959-60 season, will open at home Friday nigh> against Solsberry. And 6-foot-7 Dan McGhee and a couple of 6-4 boys are still in the Bloomfield lineup. A couple, of first-time sectional winners will start Friday—Albion at Ligonier and.Waterloo at home against Riverdale. Albion lost key men but will be pretty big. Water- foo kept most of. its squad. Carlisle, sectional and regional champ last year, will-throw another strong team against Oaktown in a Friday night opener. Indiana State now has guards H i n k 1 e Hartsburg and Ray Riggs from the Carlisle team that ; had a 27-2 record last season, but returnees include 6-4 Allen Vanmeter, 6 ; 3 Ed Willis and five other veterans. Montpelier, another sect i o n a 1 winner will show gpod size again in a home opener Friday against Warren. Most major conferences will hold off action for two or three weeks but the Mid-Southern is 'an exception. Co-champions Corydon and Paoli will play road games Friday at Brownstown and North Central of Farmersburg, respectively. Paoli also' has a home game Wednesday with Ellettsville: Many of • the larger schools haven't even started practice yet. The "summer book" says Koko- mq will be the team ot beat.

The Tigers had a final season mark .of 6 wins, one tie and two losses. Both ,of the defeats were outside the CIC to Logansport and Kokomo. In the CIC the Bengals were hard to hold and only a 7-7 draw with Huntington, who finished .second, .with five wins and one tie, marred their league record. ( Gerald Sherrick, 155 pound senior halfback, ran wild_ against Elwood. He scored five touchdowns, three in the second quarter and two more in the fourth period.. His TD runs we're for 13 yards, 2 yards, 5 yards, 21 yards and 49 .yards. After his second tally, Peru spiced it a bit as quarterback John Atkinson hurled a 10 yard pass to end Tom Scott for a six pointer. Atkinson collected four extra points from placement. All of Elwood's scoring came in the third period as Jim Adams drove four yards and Tom Peters hurled a 25-yard pass to Ed Jones for the pair of six- pointers. Neither team scored in the first quarter and then the , dam broke. Peru scored four times in the second period, Elwood got its two TDs in the third and Peru climaxed the show with two more scores in the fourth quarter. Peru fans flooded the field as the game ended and paraded players and Coach Bob Larson on their shoulders. Incidentally, Coach Larson got a shower bath at the "hands of his happy players later.

The senior halfback from Winchester, Mass., teamed with Dietz and fullback Joe Matalavage midway in the fourth quarter in a 64- yard touchdown drive following a pass interception. It kept Navy's record spotless for the year. It was the seventh straight vie-, tory for the unbeaten Middies, ranked fourth nationally. Notre Dame has lost five in, a row since beating California in its opener. Except for the early first quarter doings and the final Navy drive, Notre Dame, a two -touchdown underdog, dominated the play in Philadelphia Stadium. It threatened a minute before the game ended by marching to Navy's four - yard line where the middies held. . . Late in the third period Notre Dame twice moved deep into Navy .territory but failed on field goal- attempts, of 16 and 31 yards by fullback Joe Perkowski. Halfbacks Angelo Dabiero and-George Sefcik sparked Notre Dame's'run- ning attack. . Notre Dame's • only score came when Bellino, apparently on a bad handoff from . quarterback . Hal Spooner, fumbled on his own 19- yard line and fullback Mike Lind recovered for the Irish. ' Four plays later, with the ball still on the 19, end Jim" Sherlock made a spectacular catch of quarterback George Haffner's pass just in bounds on the'three -yard line, outhustling two defenders. On the next play Dabiero circled left end for the touchdown. Perkowski added the extra point. Greg Mather added both conversions for'Navy." Navy's big break in the fourth quarter came when halfback Allen Hughes picked off a Haffner pass on "the Notre Dame 27 and returned it, to the Notre Dame 36. Then, with Matalavage and Bellino grinding out most of' the yardage and Dietz tossing a key 19-yard pass to end Jim Luper, the Middies .marched. The pass completion put the ball on the Irish 2. Bellino needed two tries to get over. Early in the quarter, Mather tried a field goal from the 13 but it was blocked. Dietz' play - calling on the final march kept Notre Dame's defense loose and gave the two hard-run ning ba'cks the openings they needed to get underway. The two scores for Bellino, who led all ground gainers with --113 yards, ran his season touchdown total to 13 and 80 points, adding to his own Navy record. . The 63,000 spectators were on the edge of their seats minutes before the game ended when a 60-yard pass by Haffner to halfback Bob Scarpitlo put the Irish on the Middle 13-yard line. Notre Dame drove to the 4 and then Navy pushed them back to the 11 and took over on downs. Bellino mafle the key tackle which pushed Scarpitto back to the 11. Navy tied an Academy record for consecutive victories with Saturday's triumph. With three season ending victories last year and seven this season, they now have won 10 straight. It was only the second time an Irish team has lost five in a row. The last time was in 1936.
