Eight Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Friday Evening, November 22, 19ST. NEW COACH BRIEFS HIS TWO TALI. REfibUNDERS Big Ten Will Vote Rose Bowl Berth After Saturday Games No Starters Above 5-11 Mark Peru Tigers Short On Size for Cage Campaign Jim Jones (left), the Berries' new basketball coach, looks up lo his two tall boys, Jim Fiedler (center) who stands 6-6 and Ron Jones at 6-5, hoping they will be able to control the backboards during Logansport's rugged schedule this season. Fiedler, who missed four clays of classes this week because of Illness, may be withheld from the Berries' opening game tonight against Winamac. PERU — The Peru Tigers are scheduled to open' their basketball campaign tonight at -Plymouth without a single starter reaching the six-fool mark. Coach Hay Geyer lost 6-6 Jim Rody by graduation, a measure which has forced him to completely change the Tiger's style of of- Cense. The Tigers will use inside and outside screens and work the ball for good shots this season, according to Geyer. Last year they worked off Rody on the pivot. Fred Fechtman, a clever 5-M junior, is the only returning regular. Given starting berths for Ihe opener were Ernie Range and John Cooke, both 5-la senior forwards; and Karl King, junior center, also 5-11. Rounding out the Peru five will be Eddie Carriger, 5-8 senior guard, although Jim Maverick one .o[ a fine sophomore crop prob | ably will see action.

Iowa-Irish Clash Rates lop Interest Wisconsin, Purdue Bid For Fourth Place in Big Ten CHICAGO (UP) — Iowa's clash with Noire Dame, Michigan Slate's with Kansas Slale and four conference contesls bring the Big Ten football season to a close Saturday.

Williams, who previously won the MVP plaque in 1946 and 1949, captured the league batting crown j this year for the fifth lime with j a .388 mark. He also topped Mantle in homers with 38 and came close in runs-batted-in with 87. Sicver's Third Sievers' third-place showing was one of the best in history by a player on a last-place team. It was a reward for winning the league home run title with 42 -homers and the runs-batted-in title with 114. Three baseball writers from each major-league city comprised the committee voting for the award. Mantle received the most firsl-place votes, six, and was placed no lower than fourth on any of the 24 ballots. Williams, on the other hand, received five first-place votes but was rated low on the list by two writers. One of them placed him ninth and the other 10th. Nellie Fox of the Chicago White Sox also had five first-place votes while Sievers and Gil McDougald of the Yankees each had four. - Fox, the Sox' scrappy second baseman, was a close fourth in the total vote with 193 and the versatile McDougald was fifth with 165. The rest of the field was distant. Already Michigan State has revealed lhat it will propose a rule nut's body and head. Official First Aid Kit Treat him to this full first aid kit.
