Stray Slants On Sports BY JOHN STRETT Confusion at Logansport, Muncie Coaches Max Bell of Elkhart and John Longfellow of Muncie Central had sufficient pre-game conversational material when their respective teams met Saturday night at Elkhart You see, both were the "victims" of confusing finishes the previous night when ElkhaM bowe'l to Logansport, 56-54, and the Cenrtal Bearcats blew a 42-41 thriller to Anderson. Bell was visibly upset many limes during the Berry Bowl fracas and his displeasure reached thc breaking point in thc fading seconds when officials whistled a fonl on Elkhart on the last of three Logan rebounds after a missed free throw Nobody heard thc whistle, however, Elkhart had grabbed thc ball and hustled it down the court for a last-second desperation drive to break the 54-all deadlock.

'Coach Bell, too, began picking up towels and diet defeat now that Oklahoma is a member of the losers' fraternity. Only Bowl Win to Gain Oklahoma has little to gain by seating Duke Jan. 1 at Miami -x- cept for a third straight Orange Bowl victory. In 1954 and 1956, the Sooners were determined to beat Maryland to keep their record- breaking winning streak- alive, and :hey won both times. In its last bowl contest before .he two Maryland clashes, Oklahoma had a Si-game winning streak snapped by Kentucky in the 1951 Sugar Bowl. Looking toward its battle with Duke, the Oklahoma squad has been going through a variety of practice maneuvers. One day last week, Wilkinson drilled the team on downfield blocking, punts, quick kicks, pass scrimmage, ball carrying and punt return defense. "We're just trying to keep in shape," Wilkinson said. "We try to make our practices enjoyable and not work the team too hard." Injured Players Mended Wilkinson closed out a 9-1 season with four players, including United Press All-America halfback Clendon Thomas, on the injury list. Thomas didn't miss either of the last two games, however, and all four squadmen were running at top speed when the coach opened final home field drills here last week. Although Wilkinson's creed proclaims that "defense wins football ?ames," he isn't banking on Oklahoma's, regular season yield of only 1,347 net yards to win in the Orange Bowl. Neither is he counting on Okla- loma's tendency to score in the :hird quarter,' as contrasted to Duke's late-game scoring weakness. "It's like baseball. One good inning can't win the game. It's scoring when you need to score that counts," Wilkinson said. "Duke is perhaps the best team we've met with the exception .of Notre Dame on the day we played Notre Dame," Wilkinson said. jackets and flinging them down lo the floor No technical fouls were assessed Elkhart, undoubtedly because time had rim out Tie Ball Game,They Insist For the Anilerson-Muncie Squabble, let us turn to a couple ol eye-witness accounts First, here's Bob Barnct's version in the Muncie Star: "Anderson beat Muncie Central in a tie basketball game and please Mr. Frinler, don't change that line, because that's exactly what happened A scorckecper's mistake cost Coach John Longfellow's varsity a foul goal in the third period and what should have been a tie, '12-12, will go down in the records as a 42-41 victory for Anderson. Spartans Only Unbeaten Club In Big 10 Loop Michigan State Seeks Fifth In Row at Iowa Slate CHICAGO (UP) — Michigan State, Big Ten's basketball pride and joy, goes after its fifth straight victory tonight when it visits Iowa State. The Spartans, rolling along as the league's only unbeaten team, added a fourth victory to their string Saturday night by beating Notre Dame, 79-72. But they are likely to find Iowa State the biggest menace thus far. The Cyclones from the Big Eight Conference lost a close one to Minnesota in their first foray into the Big Ten.
