But ftetea couldn't get started last week and suffered a 73 to 41 thumping at the hands of a fired- up Washington Township aggregation.

Among the freshmen group John Williamson, 5-10, is considered the •best prospect. Riemensoheider figures to pull a few surprises on some of the area bigwigs, despite the fact that his Hornets will be out-sized in every ball game. Fowler, normally a guard, was installed as the Metea center. He stands only 5-10 v The Hornets have scheduled only three games — with New Wayerly Lucerne and Twelve Mile — in their .small gym. Other home games were transferred to Fulton and Royal Center. The Hornets will join Twelve Bulldogs to stage the. annual Fulton invitational tournament Dec ember 18.

The report bristled with criticism of the idea that college sports are still amateur. The time has come, the committee said, to realize that "skill in any form is marketable" and "whether we like it or not" it is "foolish" to think that athletes should be denied a part of the profits. The report was based on a study of Ohio State athletics but was aimed at college faculties across the country.

Not a single regular returned from the 1956-37 squad, which caught fire at tournament time, whipped Kokomo and Northwestern to win the sectional and drubbed Peru in the regional, before bowing to Noblesville. Jim Landis was the closest to a starting role and as No. 7 man, saw action in 20 ball games. Other reserves include Gale Cripe, 6-1 forward; Wayne Wentzel, 6-2 forward; Dean Slavens, 5-11 guard; and Bill Howard, 5-11 guard. Candidates striving for varsity are: Jack Hallam, 5-10% guard; Lonnie Woods, 5-10 guard; Paul Xollenweider, 5-914 forward; Tom Merrell, 5-1014 forward;; Bill Schock, 5-7'/4 guard; and Ron Galloway, 5-9'A guard. Mannies believes the Oracles' size will be fair. Landis will play the pivot with his 6-2% stature. Cripe and Wentzel will assist Landis on the boards.

We guessed it would be Bob Ford, Kokomo Tribune teams beng-one Ford opened the conversation with: "I've got some bad news for you, buddy! It looks like the conference lathers are going to meet later this week and declare Kokomo and Tech co-champs." . . . After convincing him that it made no iota.to us, we asked "What brought about this sudden departure from the intricate Dickinson rating system?" * * * It seems, according to Ford, that back in 1943, Lafayette Jeff and Muncie Central finished undefeated and were declared co-titlists, although the Bearcats had accumulated more Dickinson rating points than the Bronchos . . . Ford explained that as long as precedent had been established fourteen years ago, the NCC principals opined- that Kokomo held a talking point. * * - « Stray Slants agrees! Ford and Kokomo entertained a very strong case for a look-in on the throne room . . . The Wildcats can't be blamed if their schedule happened to include the five "patsies" of the league during this particular campaign ... But then, we've complained loud and long about th'e demerits of the fabulous Dickinson law, which in principle, gives more points to a team\for beating a first division team than a second division club. X* * * The pathetic part of the whale business is that nowhere in the complicated Dickinson data can be found a ruling on the situation such as exists in the North Central right now—two undefeated teams . . . Ford hints that perhaps the conference will approve an amendment to that affect when the brass gets together to thrash it out. Then there'll be something in writing, at least. * * • A better solution, many school officials believe, concerns junking the entire Dickinson set-up and perhaps dividing the conference into two divisions for the football season . . . Loganberry mentor Harvey Roberts told Stray Slants that representatives of Marion, Kokomo, Lafayette Jeff and Logansport, touched on the proposal when they met recently to arrange the pre-season football jamboree for next year. » * » One idea put Lafayette, Kokomo, Logansport, Tech of Indianapolis and Frankfort in the western division with New Castle, Marion, Richmond, Anderson and Muncie in the eastern division ... A far more reasonable assignment, to shorten traveling trips particularly, would switch Marion for Tech on a north-south basis. * * « Each school would play teams in its own division with clear-cut first, second, third, fourth and fifth place finishes established on percentage. Then on the final night of the campaign, the winner of the eastern division would play the winner of the western division for the conference championship . . . And on the same night, the second-place teams would vie and so on down the line . . . This carries considerable merit. The NCC fathers would do well to consider such a plan. * * « LHS ticket Director Bill Brown asked us to publish |a reminder to basketball fans.

"I always felt that Hackbart would be our first-string quarterback toward the end of the season. We've always felt he had more potential than Williams," Brutal said. "We used Williams the first half, but we felt all week that our first team after three tough ball games had lost its snap." Bruhn said he believed that Kackbart was a better passer than Williams had more poise under pressure and was a better runner than the man he replaced.

Oregon State 4 AA Balking On Denver NEW YORK ('UP) _ Officials of three minor leagues headed back home today to place some new franchise ideas before their members but the Arnericar Association's reluctance to give up Denver appeared to be blocking a quick solution. Presidents of the Pacific Coast League, American Association, and Texas League failed to reach any agreement in a'6% hour meeting Tuesday with Baseball Commissioner Ford \Frick and other officials. The PCL reportedly wanted to acquire the attractive Denver area as one of the replacements for the San Francisco and Los Angeles areas it lost to the Giants and the Dodgers. But the association talked at giving up one of its choicest franchises. Under baseball law, the 'Pdi las no rights to draft Denver without the American Associa- .ion's agreement. Although the PCL is technically rated a higher league with an "open" classification, it does not have the right to draft territory from the two Triple-A Class leagues — the American Association and the International League. "We made other plane at today's meeting and they now will be submitted to the leagues involved for consideration," said Frick.
