The South Benders, second straight leam to win the state crown last March with a perfect record, downed strong Gary Roo' sevelt Saturday night, 53-42, to extend their string to 31 and an even .chance to eclipse Attucks' all-time '• record of 45 in 1956. • Lafayette, minus four starters ; from last year's state tourney ' finalists, opens against Lebanon Friday.

It wasn't just because Logansport plays Wabash and Kokomo on succErs- sivs week-ends early in January but here was a chance to scout both quintets . . . Youll recall Jimmy wound up a three-year eoEiching tenure at Wabash this spring when he transferred his allegiance to Logansport. and his family fled from the Russians. Tech opens against city foe Scecina Friday. Muncie, with John Longfellow Jr., at the helm for the first time at one of tKe state'st op hardwood teams, should also be among the best when it opens against Columbia City, also Friday. The South Benders, as expected, had their troubles with Roosevelt. It wasn't until the final period when the Panthers managed only two fielders that the champions pulled away after Roosevelt sniped into a 37-34 lead.

He contributed 11 points, despite limited practice since the end of football season ... Big Ed Thompson, the other new addition, came from Lagro in Wabash county.

We believe the Sooners would how sooner and more often playing a typical Big Ten schedule ... Big Ten coaches sounded off on' this idea a few weeks ago listing only two clubs—Indiana and Northwestern—as not capable of licking Oklahoma -this year. The other eight were classed as strong as the Sooners. Who's gonna argue over the selection of Terry Brennan as "Coach of the Week?" The spectacular conquest of Oklahoma and the end of the Sooners' 47-game .string without defeat surely will bring this honor to the young Notre Dame coach . .. Seems like it will stop the alumni sniping for a while, too! Ohio Rose-Bowl Bound liours earlier saw little or no action. Gridi star Joe Winston, for instance, played only a few minutes and got two freethrows. South Bend Central tangles with Hammond this Saturday. South is Loaded Fort Wayne South, also expected :o" be among the cream, opens against Bluffton Friday with four starters back. Don Reichert lost only Chris Stavreti from the starting five.

The Buckeyes accomplished their triple objective with v one football victory, a 17-13 triumph over favored Iowa Saturday. The victory was the sixth straight in the conference for Coach Woody Hayes' ground-hugging Bucks and White, a sophomore starred in the winning attack, carrying seven times for 64 yards in | a fourth period drive that pro-' duced the winning touchdown. The Spartan victory oveir Minnesota was almost effortless. Walt Kowalczyk, Michigan. State's candidate for All - America honors, scored two touchdowns.

Tipton Township, beaten only by Galveston, takes on a strong Bunker Hill cage unit, running at 2-1, at the Miami county school. Galveston hopes to stretch its winning streak to three after an opening loss to Northwestern, by nicking Prairie Township of Tipton county. Rochester's second, appearance of the w«ek Friday will feature the invasion of the Marion Giants, who were hard-pressed last week to nose out Eastern of Howard county". Delphi is slated to try again at North Manchester, after dropping its opener at Northwestern. The annual Carroll county feud between Flora and Camden is due to erupt Tuesday when the two rivals clash at the Camden goal hall. Royal Center and New Waverly, two Cass county teams, will be idle. .

But even that upset pales alongside Notre Dame's 7-0 conquest of >Io. 2 ranked Oklahoma, smashing the Sooners' record winning streak of 47 games and their r=cocc! streak of 123 games without being ihut cut. Oklahoma's loss does not disturb its hold on a berth in the Orange Jowl. Duke probably qualified for he other berth with its 7-6 win over Clemson on Wray Carlton's catch of a TD pass and extra-point tick.

The underdog Notre Dnm« team toppled Oklahoma 7-to-O, and ended the nation's longest collegiate winning streak at 47 games. The game, which was witnessed by 62,000 fans at Norman, Oklahoma, marked the first defeat for the Sooners since November 9, 1953, and the first time in 123 games in which they have been held scoreless.

Pick Kaiser Top Lineman EAST LANSING, Mich. (-UP)— Dave Kaiser was named "lineman of the week" by United Press today but you won't find his name on the enrollment lists of any college in the nation. Kaiser, who won the honor largely on the basis of his defensive work against Minnesota, is enrolled at Michigan State University under the name of David Kajzerkowski.

(UP) — Thieves who insist crime pays should ponder the forunes of a local underworld character. Police said a burglar broke into the Raymond Ball home, managed to find only a boltle of beer Although that play was the most spectacular of the game, it was really Kaiser's defensive work that won him the honor as the top lineman of the week. He caught only one pass during the game, for seven yards, but consistently broke in on Minnesota quarterbacks Bob by Cox and Dick Larson and threw them for losses when they were back to pass.
