SUNDAY, DECEMBER 22,1957 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and 10GANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE NINE HILLSDALE'S STRING RUNS OUT, LOSE 27-26 Kansas Eleven Nips Them In Bowl Game ST. PETERSBURG, Fla UD — Pittsburgh (Kan). State College just barely staved off a last minute passing attack by Hillsdale College's brilliant Doug Maison to squeeze out a 27-26 victory in the Holiday Bowl football game Saturday. Gene Waynbcrg intercepted a Maison pass in the end zone as the gun sounded to preserve the Pittsburg victory. An attempted conversion by Wayne O'Shaughnessy that went wide only a minute and a half from the end lost Hillsdale a tic and broke its 34-game winning streak—longest in the country. A crowd of 7,500 saw the nationally televised (CBS) for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. (NAIA). Power packed -Pittsburg used passing in the pinches to win. Hillsdale had virtually nothing except the passing of Maison. Maison passed for three Hillsdale touchdowns and scored the other one on a sneak of a few inches after passing set up that score. Pittsburg seemingly had the game sewed up 27-20 when Jim Reynolds blocked a punt on the Pittsburg 48. Maison struck for one quick touchdown but couldn't quite pull it out. Pittsburg 20 0 7 0—27 Hillsdale 0 13 7 6—26 Hillsdale scoring: Touchdowns— Maison (1, plunge), Foe 2 (7, pass-run from Maison, 5, pass- dash run from Maison); E. O'Shaughnessy (14-pa;-s from Maison).

Vessels Would Kef urn To Pros EDMONTON, Alberta W> - The Journal says Billy Vessels is definitely interested in returning to professional football and quotes him as saying that "Edmonton is at the top of my list." The Journal says Vessels, named Canada's most outstanding football player in 1953 while with Edmonton, said in a telephone interview from his home in Miami, Fla., he has not been, approached by the Eskimos regarding a 1958 contract. Vessels played for Baltimore ' Colts of the National Football Lea- I gue in 1956. He now is a salesman iwith a home-building firm.

Hennon Scores 45 As fill Nips Duke 87-84 (PITTSBURGH W) — Don Hennon poured in 45 points for the Pitt basketball team Saturday to set a new individual Pitt scoring record for one game as the Panthers trimmed Duke 87 to 84 in a thrilling contest that went into two overtime periods. Hennon's scoring spree exceeded the previous Pitt individual scoring mark for one game by five points. The previous mark of 40 had been set by Ed Pavlick against Ohio State in the early part of the 1954-55 season. • Hennon also set a new individual scorig mark for games at the Pitt Field House, shattering the old mark of 42 that had been set by Robin Freeman of Ohio State in the same game that Pavlick set his mark.

Diz To Quit TV In 1958 LOS ANGELES (ff^Dizzy Dean says he plans to quit in 1958 his $S2,500-a-year job as CBS broadcaster of tile major leagues "game of the week." Dean's three year contract expires at the end of the 1958 season and since he will be 47 on Jan. 15 he wants to make next season his last "because I'm going to enjoy life, it's my time no\v," said the former St. Louis Cardinal fireballer. He osvns a grapefruit ranch in Phoenix, Ariz. It's a five acre deal and last year yielded 3,000 crates, just enough to keep "ol" Diz" busy in his spare time. Here to appear on Dinah Shore's television program Sunday night, Diz remarked that he will get more for that one appearance than he did' for his first entire year in the majors, when he won 18 games. His wife. Pat, affirmed that and commented: "The first- year we were married Diz earned $3,000 and we saved $1,200 of it. Furthermore, it's still there in the bank. We never did go into that saving." McCORMICK HURT LAFAYETTE, Ind. Ml—Purdue University's number one basketball reserve, Ed McCormick, is undergoing X-Rays tests to determine the extent of injuries suffered in a locker room fall Friday. McCormick, a Vincennes senior, plays forward and guard. He suffered a badly bruised side in the fall following practice. Afghanistan, in southwestern Asia, has an area oE 245,000 suare miles. U.S. Makes New Bid In Cup Play MELBOURNE Iff)— The United States makes another bid for the Davis Cup Dec. 26-28 with faithful old court warrior Vic Seixas, 44-year-old Gardnar Mulloy, and Earry Mackay, power - hitting young giant who has never played in a cup match before. In the last year Australia has lost its famous Davis Cup twins, Lew Hoad and Ken Rosewall, to the professional ranks. This tennis mad continent, which turns out talent on assembly line basis, will defend the international trophy with two new racket precisionists, Ma! Anderson and Ashley Cooper in singles. Cagy left bander Mervyn Rose, who lias been removed from his longtime official doghouse, teams with Anderson hi the doubles. The draw is scheduled Wednesday. Opening singles matches are slated Thursday, the doubles Friday, and the final singles Saturday. Harry H o p m a n, Australia s captain, enters the match apparently less sure of himself than in recent years. He predicts a 4-1 triumph for his charges, but warns "we are in for a very tough match." Bill Talbert, U. S. captain since 1953, is belligerently refusing to concede any ground until Hie last ball is hit. 'We have had our problems," Talbert says, "but we are a fighting team. Our morale is high. We may surprise." The' Australian campaign appears cut and dried. Hopman, barring accidents, is certain to use Anderson, the wiry Queens- lander who won the American championship this year at Forest Hills, and Cooper, 21-year-old Australian champion, in the singles and pair Anderson with Rose in the doubles. Rose is rated the best amateur, doubles player in the world. The Americans will rely on Seixas, 34-year-old veteran of five previous challenge rounds and dose to 60 Davis Oup matches, and .Mackay, 22-year - old former University of Michigan player from Dayton, Ohio, in the singles. Kush Gets Coach Job TUCSON, Ariz. »)—The Arizona Board of Regents Saturday pointed line coacih Frank Kush as the new head football coach at Arizona State College at Tem]>e.

Kush, a native of Windber, Pa., was given a one year contract, the maximum permitted by Arizona law for officials at state educational institutions.

NATIONAL LEAGUE W Keitzer's 37 Bollei & Farrer 3314 L 11 14V4 Meet The Cass County Coach JERRY AND ANNE MILLER, Twelve Mile Staff Photo (Fifth In a series of weekly ar- ttclcs recognizing Cass county athletic coaches.) Twelve Mile's new athletic coach has two distinctions. Jerry Miller was a high school teammate of the fabulous Don Schlundt, Indiana's all-time great, and a member of the 1956 Venture for Victory team on tour of South America. Jerry, who won three awards, for basketball and two for baseball at Washington Clay high school of South Bend, worked at forward as a junior, while Schlundt handled the pivot duties.' Washington-Clay that season reigned as South Bend sectional tournament champions and reached the finals of the regional before tawing to the Elkhart Blue Blaz- ers. During Miller's high school career, Washington copped three consecutive St. Joseph county basketball crowns. Jerry's athletic memories also center around the South American journey in 1956 when he joined Coach Don Odle's Venture for Victory mission. The team was victorious- in all 57 games scheduled, which included sometimes as many as six games in a single day. Miller matriculated at Wheaton college in Wheaton, 111., where he earned four varsity basketball letters. In two of those four campaigns, Wheaton ruled as king pin of the College conference of Illinois. Entering the NAIA college cage tournament in 1956, Wheaton battled its way to fourth place from a bulky and talented field of 32 entries.
