Paul Flatley's jump shot from the circle ended the with the correct score entered in the record books. Officials whistled 41 errors on both teams, but the players weren't the only ones hobbling. Scorerii called time out in the fourth period to determine the exact score . . . Then the Scoreboard clocks wouldn't operate ar.d nobody on the floor knew how much time remained ... At last, the climax, much to ihe embarrassment of Richmond center Dick Goins. Confused after a Muncie foul attempt, he batted a rebound shot through the wrong basket, bringing Burris to within a point ot the Red Devils at 43-42 ... In Coins' defense, however, he picked off 15 of Richmond's 43 rebounds and counted 15 points to share scoring honors with Larry Shook.

Area Cage Results METEA LfCKS WAVERLY TWELVE MILE—Metea's Hornets bounced back into the victory column here Wednesday night with some deadly shooting from far and near to down the spirited New Waverly Wildcats G8 to 42. The Hornets led at each quarter 18-11, 35-22 and 45-32 before hurrying to victory. Balanced scoring turned the trick for the Melea club as Bob Wagoner hit 18, Gene Moss evening and except for a scoring drought late in the second period and for much of the third could have made it a real bailie. Riley's height and heavier load of lalent finally told Ihe difference. The Poets led 11-6. 20-9 and 32-14 at the quarters before the Saints got busy in the final quarter and outscored the Poets 15-S.

Muncie did extra free throwing Monday night. Longfellow wants no repetition of 11 hits and 19 misses from the charity line as was the case against North Side. • Miller Wanderings Over? The puzzling case of Ken Miller, a (i-2 senior athlete, whose wanderings took him from Wabash to Rochester and back to Wabash since the opening of the fall school team, appears to be ended . . . Zebra Coach Paul Rockwell told this writer that Miller, who wasn't happy at Rochester, hud moved back to Apache land with his mother this week . . . Miller missed two days of school last week, probably planning future action and was suspended from the team. Officials reinstated him before the Logansport game and he performed against his former coach, Jim Jones. Rockwell revealed Miller would be eligible to don an Apache uniform upon clearance of the official school transfer papers ... By coincidence, Rochester and Wabash are booked to clash in a Central Indiana Conference game Friday at. the Zebra gym. But Rockwell doesn't believe Miller can work into the Apache lineup that soon to be used against Rochester The final twist will develop when the Berries invade Wabash January 3, making Miller the, first boy to see action twice against the same team in one season—while wearing different uniforms.

Logansport licked the Bearcats on their last visit to the Bowl two years ago to end a dozen years of basketball frustration.

Starters Depart All of Muncie's starters a year ago have departed for various reasons such as graduation, ineligibility and leaving school to enter service. So new coach Longfellow is working a completely new ball percent tin socking North Side. Even in defeat at Fort Wayne, the Berries were creditable marksmen at 34 percent. Earlier they hit 50 percent at Rochester's expense. Coach Jones was concerned this week about foot blisters -on Ron Jones and Cuppy.

By UNITED PRESS In the days when Colorado was struggling for football recognition, Byron (Whizzer) White provided a tremendous boost by winning All- America honors in 1937 and setting a national rushing record of 1,121 yards in '38. He was brilliant in the class room, too, and became a Rhodes scholar. Later, he played three season in the tough National Football League with Pittsburgh and Detroit, winning more acclaim. Whatever happened to Whizzer White? Today he's a successful attorney in Denver, married and the father of a W-year-old future halfback. ROBERT HERR f R. R. 2 Comden, Ind. j Ph.
