Hinkle Likes Underdog Role Butler Plays "Tune-Up" Games for Big 10 Clubs INDIANAPOLIS (UP) — Every time Butler's Bulldogs trc. on the basketball floor against a Big Ten quintet, they're classed as "under- dqgs." But they don't mind it—it takes' some of the pressure off. What happened to touted Ohio State last Saturday could very well happen tonight to unbeaten Illinois. For years, Butler has served as a "tune-up" outfit for Western Conference teams which start playing for keeps in January. Now and then coach Tony Hinkle's club comes through, t,'nd this could very well be the year for it to register at least a .500 average against bigger foes. Ohio Stale was cut down at Columbus in an overtime thriller, 77-73, and although Illinoi: is difficult to beat at home, Butler has a height advantage and absolutely schools finished tearing each other up in a busy round of basketball surprises. And the pair which nurses per- or 17.2 averages, appears to be going wide open with eight player? hitting above the 20-m-ark -at this stage. tt Herb Banet, Fort Wayne Central,! nessey ..with 3,376 pins and 76.26 Our kids,'said Hinkle, "can give :s independents; Claude Weeks Hart-!

McKinney Pleads For Support From Indianapolis Fans INDIANAPOLIS (UP)—Baseball mogul Frank McKinney predicted Tuesday night major league 1 expansion to Indianapolis is possible "in three years" if Hoosier fans support the national pastime. He told a baseball session a proposed big-league expansion to Indianapolis is being considered. Baseball Commissioner Ford Frick, said McKinney, rates Indianapolis only behind the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and ..Montreal as possibilities for major league teams. "We can be in the major leagues in three years in my book if we can convince the majors we are a major league territory," said McKinney. First, though, the former Democratic National Chairman warned, Indianapolis area fans must show solid support of their American Association entry which ran into, financial difficulties during the past season. "If we're out o fthe minors when that (expansion) comes," he said,! "we're dead." „ 'senior Bobby Plump the "liero of] KJi riiih in NPW Ynrk Milan" when the Ripley County !
