The Bronchos will play a tall Central Catholic of Fort Wayne quintet in one part of the doubleheader, while Carl McNulty's once- beaten Elwood Panthers figure to extend the Central Bears oE Etaer McCall in the other attraction. Logansport's final invitational is slated for Saturday afternoon and evening with the Loganberries meeting old rival Monticello, who last year earned the Berry Bowl regional tourney title. Also appearing on the program will be Kokomo's Wildcats versus the Flora Badgers in a pre-sectional test. Three conference quintets move into the Muncie fieldhouse Saturday for-a basketball show with unbeaten South Side of Fort Wayne. Leahy New Aggie Coach Agrees to Terms Via Telephone COLLEGE STATION, T ex., Lafayette's 40-39 squeaker at Frankfort earlier in the week pushed the Bronchos (3-0) a half game ahead of idle Tech of Indianapolis. They're apt to stay that way until .their scheduled January 17 showdown at Lafayette. The Greenclads, in fact, are booked for two other rugged 'road" struggles in defense of.their NCC honors. They must close the campaign February 14 and 21 at Kokomo and at Logansport. Both rivals are formidable on their home boards. Kokomo, an 88-85 loser to Crispus Attucks in a hot shooting spectacle last week, clings to third place in the conference standings with a 2-1,-just ahead of Richmond, Logansport and Marion, all bracketed at 1-1. The Berries gained stature by knocking over Elkhart after a one- point victory at Peru. And Richmond bounced back from a loss to Muncie by upsetting the powerful Mishawaka Maroons. Four NCC performers maintain an average of better than 20 points per game, headed by Kokomo's Jim Rayl with-28.0. Others include Larry Moudy, of Frankfort; Ron Bonham, of Muncie Central and Dale Foster, of New Castle. They are Muncie Central, Richmond and the. Marion Giants.

Aussies Take 2-0 Net Lead MacKay Good in Losing Cause MELBOURNE, Australia (UP)— Ygung Australians Mai Anderson and Ashley Cooper dealt two dcad- ;ame Americans bitter five-set singles defeats today to all but wipe out U.S. hopes of regaining . ihe Davis Cup. Anderson, opened the payoff challenge round by outlasting surprising young Barry MacKay of Dayton, Ohio, 6-3, 7-5, 3-6, 7-9, 6-3, although the losing Yank stamped himself a star of the future. And then the jam - packed crowd of 20,500 sitting under leaden skies at Kooyong Stadium saw handsome Cooper, and hometown hero, turn back 34-year-old Vic Seixas of Philadelphia, 3-6,,7-5, 6-1, us, 6-3, in what could be the crusher for the U.S. team. The 2-0 sweep left the Aussies needing only one more win in tlia three rmaining matches—the doubles and the pair of singles tests. They're expected to gel that ona more win right away in the doubles when they send Anderson and southpaw Mervyn Rose against the weary Seixas and either MacKay or 44-year-old Gardnar Mulloy of Denver, Colo. "We're down, 2-0, and must take a great gamble in the doubles tomorrow," admitted . L'.S. team captain Billy Talbert after today's losses. "I'm not saying what I jhave in mind — I haven't made my final decision on the doubles team — but MacKay will be a greater player after today's fine showing and any more Davis Cup he plays he'll be even better." Aussie captain Harry Hopman joined in praise of MacKay, who was a late substitute in Talberl's singles plans for ailing Herbie Flam. Said Hopman, "MacKay played really well and has a great tennis future." SUBE SIGN SYRACUSE, N.
