Jim Rayl and the Wildcats. If Rayl managed 39 points on the Berry Bowl boards, no telling how many he'll get at home.

"We are not in mid-season condition," said Hayes. "We havan't played for so long that i would be impossible to be in that iiood shape.

"Oregon has a well-rounded team," he poinled out. "And any well-rounded club is hard to beat." Hayes was close-mouthed about what he had planned in the way of a surprise for the Webfoots. "I note that Coach (Len) Casanova changes his offense quite a bit for every game," said Woody. "We'll have, a few new wrinkles "I think this is the fastest team we've had here and we average But Russ Brown at Royal Center would just as soon keep the situation status quo. His Bulldogs spanked Morocco and Wolcott for Nos. 10 and 11 in a row to win the Wolcolt tournament .... Same goes for Paul Rockwell at Rochester. The Zebras accomplished something that escaped Dec Baker's Winamac Indians— that of trimming North Judson's powerful Blucjays at the Knox invitational. Rochester earlier dropped a five-pointer to Winamac. Lowe Still Jumping A word about Ronnie Lowe, Washington Township's jumping jack, who is busy making a basketball hit at McMurray College in Abilene, Texas. Playing against junior colleges, freshman- units and other groups using some varsity athletes, Lowe has paced the McMurray frosh in scoring with 37 points in four games Varsity Coach Stan Burnham observed that "Lowe has tihe most spring I've seen i'v v l^ uu\j JII^LU alku we «>*;la^i* . , _ ., * i t • t . about 6-4 " he said Austin a six- m man y a d *y- its a real Pleasure lo watch him leap above the taller men.

Dickens Suspended Their new coach, Phil Dickens, was banished to the'sidelines before coaching his first game. He was suspended for violating the Big Ten's new code of aid to athletics but was reinstated before the year ran out. It was a sad year, though, for the undermanned Hoosiers in Bloomington. They won only from non-league Villanova and set a record for having more points scored against them in Big Ten play than any other team in history. East Chicago Roosevelt and Evansville Reilz, the best in the Calumet and the power in the South, tied for the mythical high school football title awarded by the United Press coaches' board. Both were unbeaten. It was a banner year, too, for the speed merchants at the annual "500" Memorial Day gasoline derby in Indianapolis where Lady Luck finally smiled on popular Sam Hanks. After 11 futile at- where the boys will be able to avoid New Year's Eve noise. Meanwhile, Casanova and the Webfoots slated a short session today and then planned to go into hiding.

At the peak of the golden era in sports, Gertrude Ederle slipped into the icy waters of the English Channel off Cape Gris Nez, France, in an effort to become the first woman ever to swim the channel. After 35 miles and 14 hours, 34 minutes on Aug. 6, 1926, Trudy emerged from the surf under the White Cliffs of Dover, England, not only the first woman four who went away. Fritz Oster- mueller, the former pitcher, was only 50. With him passed Ihree of Ihe elder slatesmen. They were sharp-eyed Paul Krichell, chief scout of the New York Yankees, at 74, excitable Dolf Luque, former pitcher and coach of the Giants, at 66, and 64-year-old Billy Meyer, the genial, easy-going man who formerly managed the Pirates. It will be a long time before basketball forgets florid-faced Pat Kennedy, the actor of the .hardwood who passed at 50.
