Twelve Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Monday Evening, November 25, 1957. Stray Slants On Sports BY JOHN STKEY Busy Turkey Week Net Slate In Area Wmamac Meant Business The Berries are in the basketball books at 1-0 and Coach Jim Jones is mighty thankful for the results ... We asked him before the tipoff Eriday night if he had the customary first game jitters. Jones ^ retorted: "Not jitters, I'm just scared'to death." ... Doe Baker's best Winamac quintet wasn't fooling. The Indians controlled the ball game until the third quarter was a few minutes old. It took that long for the hosts to set down the visitors. * * * • In a pre-season analysis of his Loganberry performers, Coa<!h Jones labeled Larry Jones as the "most consistent player on the gquad." Butch showed the Berry fans what his coach meant and at Wlnamac's expense . . . The 5-11 senior touched up every phase of the game, He tallied 17 points, rebounded effectively and above all was able to lift the faltering Berries by the bootslrinjrs •when they had to push over the hump . , , Butch appears to have come into his own. * * * Nothing surprising about Larry Cart's contribution to the Lonan•berry cause, however. He finished with 20 points, 15 of them coming after the intermission . .. .. North Central conference toes will :!ind Cart more poised and more menacing than ever ... We believe next time the rest of the Berries, including all-conference center Ron Jcnes •will 'shake their "shakes" and lend a little assistance to Butch Jones • and Cart. * * • 9 In the event the Jonesmcn scrape through the next two co:n"". fllcts against Rochester Wednesday and Central of Fort Wayne . Friday, they should be better prepared to face the NCC campaijpi . . . The local coaches don't believe Central of Muncie and Frankfort can muster more threatening gestures than Logansport's • • opening three foes . . . Rochester warmed up for its Invasion of :; Berry Bowl by blasting Marion. Fort Wayne also collared an NCC :• member, taking Anderson, 71 to 60, and followed up Saturday night with a 57 to 38 conquest of Fort Wayne Catholic. , * * Keep Boxing in Ring The manly art of self-defense would be a worthy addition to any Big Ten athletic curriculum. But so far only two members—Wiseon- . sin and Michigan State—think enough of, boxing to recognize the sport • and actively participate on an inter-scholastic basis . . . From all • accounts, however, Purdue and Indiana boast some athletes who • probably would give excellent accounts of themselves in the ring. The • trouble is these boys wear football suits for the annual Old Oaken Bucket attraction. * * * It's unfortunate these incidents of fisticuffs continually pop tip • io mar the attraction, which was billed as Big Ten football . . . Anyway, the blood-spattered Bucket in safely deposited in Purdue's trophy, room for another year or perhaps another decade. The chant "Break up the Buckeyes" hasn't been heard in Big Ten circles yet, but the Big Ten is beginning to hate Ohio State just as • the American league clubs regard the New York Yankees . . . Three I perfect conference slates in four seasons against the toughest football opposition in the land is remarkable ... And what's more, l:hat . Columbus gang runs against defenses stacked to halt its crunching •ground attack. Few ever succeed.

Brown Sets Yardage Mark vastly improved football club next year. Only three players who started the game for Indiana last Saturday were seniors—end Del Gales, guard Don Howell and wingback Jim Yore. But despite this encouraging outlook, the Hoosiers won't find Purdue any easier next year. Jack Mollenkopf will have 26 of 37 players he used in the "Bucket" game back. Among Purdue's major losses are Kenny Mikes, a power-runner and top ground gainer last Saturday, plus such stout linemen as Neil Habig, John Jardine, Ron Sabal and Gene Selawski. The scrap, almost completely dominated by Purdue, ended in a brawl after Purdue's Erich Barnes intercepted a pass by Tom McDonald and Phil Kuebbeler blocked Indiana's John Razmic.
