WINAMAC INDIANS POISED FOR INVASION OF BERRY BOWL Jim Jones unveils his first Logansport high school basketball team Friday night at the Berry Bowl against a skillful Winamac Indian contingent that already has three scalps dangling from its belt. Indications point to a capacity ihouse for the two rivals with Winamac fans urgently requesting ticket:; in excess of the 203 ducats sold earlier in the Pulaski county city. The new Loganberry coach suffered his opening rebuff even before the opening tipoff when Jim Fiedler, a 6-6 senior center was counted out of the Winaroac encounter. Fiedler has missed classes all •week and is still confined to hlsj home with influenza.

Three previous trips to Berry Bowl have ended in defeat for his Winamac basketball units ... But his current unbeaten Indian varsity squad, poised for its Friday engagement against the Loganberries, seems to possess one 'trait more than all the others—shooting proficiency. Winamac even in the season's opener at Camden two weeks ago managed to register a good 30.3 per cent from Hie field . . . The Indians then warmed up to the task at hand and clouted the Mnnon Railroaders with a 44 per cent mark th« following week . . . Two nights ago. Baker watched his charges approach the 50-50 figure by banking in 29 field gnals in « nunimum of 61 shots. That's 47.5 per cent accuracy. Carl KcNulty, the old Washington Township favorite now coaching the Elwood Panthers, may have to vie with his former school— j Rochester—for the top prize in (he Central Indiana Conference this winter . . . Big Carl, who won more friends when his Elwood quintet made such a gallant stand against Crispus Altucks of Indianapolis in the regional tourney, directed the Panthers; to a 66 to 53 conquest of AlexandriEi in a CIC game last week. Coach Dee Baker talks over strategy to his Winamac Indians' basketball squad on the eve oj its invasion of Logansport for the Ilerrlcs' 'Friday opener. Front row, left to right, are Jerry .Alexander, Robert March, Allen Dunfop, RomiJd Depoy, Kcnton Planck and Robert Lewis. Back row, left to right, are: Ronald Hunter, James Freeman, Jerry Mangold, Earl Bcrger, Charles Hcinsen and Victor Healer. (Pharos-Tribune Photo-Engraving.)

This development leaves the bulk of the rebounding chores' to .6-5 center Ron Jones, North Central conference scoring champion last year, and Jim Moss, the nigged football tackle, who will start at forward. Moss is 6-2. Only other returning regular in the starting lineup is Larry Cart, E-ll senior guard, one of the Berries' most reliable performers dur. ing last year's 12-14 season. Cuppy Gets Chance Coach Jones figures to pair Cart with Billy Cuppy in the back court. Cuppy, a first-class ball handler, will be the only junior of the five that will be on the floor at tipoff time. Larry Jones, 5-11 senior who is an able rebounder and good shooter, draws the other forward assignment alongside Moss. Available for reserve duty are| John Gibson, a senior and Tom Iowa Hawkeyes appeared to have individual honors in two Big Ten departments sewed up today but the remaining individual titles are up for grabs Saturday. In conference' statistics released today Handy Duncan, his conference season over, had a cinch lead h total offense with 747 yards, 695 of them from passing. His teammate Jim Gibbons had a wide lead in the pass catching department with 26. Ohio State's Don Clark apparently held, the key to rushing honors.. The Buckeye star did not play last week because of injuries but held on to an 82-yard lead over Wisconsin halfback Danny Lewis. Clark had 522 yards on Ii7 rushei; for a 5.9 average. Lewis ha;i Sacked up 451 yards on 71 attempts for a 6.1 average. The Michigan-Ohio State game Saturday also contains the key to .he individual scoring title. Clark and Wolverine Jim Pace are tied Hayward a junior, in the fronl line. Dave Dickerson, a regular last year and Jim Sweet, a speedy junior, are set to spell the starting guards. Winamac is rolling ahead in high gear after three consecutive triumphs. The Indians slipped by Camden, 51 to 49, while shaking out their kinks, in the season's debut. They lowered the boom on a tall Monon Railroader quintet, 68 to 32 last Friday and this week stopped the Rochester Zebras with a fancy 47.5 shooting average. The score was 69 to 64. Mangold Improves Coach Dee Baker's squad with Jerry Mangold at 6-3 the only performer with any substantial size shows up creditably on the backboards despite the height deficiency. Winamac's other four starters all are "shorties," Forwards Ron Hunter is 5-11 and Jerry Alexander stands only 5-10. The back- court guardians Bob March anc Allen Dunlop measure 5-8. March, who tallied 15 points against the Berries last year, is working on a 20-point average for his first three outings. He hit 21 at Camden and followed with 18 against Monon and 21 in the Rochester game. Baker is particularly pleased with the improved scoring of Mangold, who riddled Monori's defense for 22 points and netted 15 against the Zebras. Sophomore Charles Heinsen, 6-1 youngster is Winamac's top relief man. He tallied 11 points to help the Indians beat Rochester. Also ready for action Friday night are Earl Berger, 6-2 sophomore; Rorald DePoy, Jim Freeman and Victor Heater. Officiating the "B" team preliminary at 6:45 o'clock will be Larry Foster of Kirklin and Gerald Sweet of Logansport. Varsity game referees are Jack Small of Lafayette and Jim Davidson of Muncie. at 48 points. Another Wolverine, Jim Van Pelt, will be bidding for the conference passing crown agains 1 : the Buckeyes. Van Pelt, helped along by six touchdown tosses, was hard on the heels of Jim Ninowski of Michigan State for the honor in the weighted ratings. Ninowski completed his ccnfe::- ence season with a passing average of .604 good for 450 yards and four TD's. In team standings Michigan State lead the league in both cf- fense and defense. Conference leader Ohio State was second in offense, fifth in defense and Iowa, third in the standings, was second on defense and third on defense. Illinois and Michigan rounded out the top five on offense, Purdue and Wisconsin led Ohio on defense.

INDIANAPOLIS (OP) — Despite the odds, there was rising optimism today in the Indiana University football camp as the undermanned Hoosiers got in tlistr last practice licks for Saturday's showdown clash against Purdue. It will be a real grudge battle for the "Old Oaken Bucket" at Bloorr.ing'ton, with the "side saddle" Hoosiers itching to avenge nine straight setbacks at the hands of the Boilermakers from Lafayette and to salvage some prestige from an otherwise disastrous season. Purdue, nevertheless, was a three-touchdown choice to nail another "P" to the resty chain of the moss-covered bucket emblematic of supremacy between the state's two Big Ten rivals. Indiana was expected to be pitched sky-high by its coaching staff, the student body and the tack built around Jim Yore, one of the hardest-running wingbacks in the conference, and a core of experienced ends." Coach Jack Mollenkopf said Purdue was "expecting and preparing for as tough a game as we have had all season." "Purdue long ago learned t o respect - Indiana as a foe in any kind of competition," said Mollenkopf. "This game can't be decided on paper—it will be decided on the gridiron with both teams ready for a top effort." Purdue .500 For Season Burnie Miller, the Indiana scout, said Purdue has a "big, slow line, a good football team that is exceptionally good defensively."

Rochester bounced back strongly to pull within two points at 60 to 58 with 3:21 left in the game. But Winamac survived the rally to win, 69 to 64. Coach Paul Rockwell's Zebras will visit Berry Bowl next Wednesday, hoping for another impressive performance Logansport remembers the last time a year ago when the Fulton county net snipers extended the Berries to a 71 to 69 score after a scorcher that could have gone either way.

"Gaining Confidence" Indiana bowed, 27-13, for its seventh loss in eight games this season. But its stand against the heavily-favored Wolverines was impressive. It was a far cry from some slaughters only weeks earlier- such as 54-0 courtesy Michigan State, 56-0 by Ohio State, 34-0 by Minnesota. "These kids are gaining confidence and finding they can d o some things and they feel in their hearts they can win this one," said acting coach Bob Hicks. "Thisj squad has proved to me its ability! to bounce back." With that kind of spirit "and 60 minutes of our best football, who knows?" he added. "We're going out there and give it all we've got..." Fritz at Fullback Hicks said he planned to start Tom Kendrick as tailback, replacing Norm Mackin, and Ed Fritz at fullback, replacing the injured Ken Hubbart. Either Tom McDonald or Steve Filipowski will quarterback the Hoosiers. The scouts, as usual, exchanged diplomatic courtesies. Purdue's Joe Dienhart warned: "Don't discount the Hoosiers."
