The South Benders should have no trouble registering their 35th consecutive victory and fifth this season at East NI'HSC foe Goshen Friday. Seven-game winder Madison likewise was favored over Madison the same night, but the records of such outfits as Evansville Lincoln, Gary Emerson, Lafayette, Indianapolis Shortridge, Terre Haute Gar-field and Vincennes appeared in jeopardy. Lincoln clashes with city foe Central Tuesday. Emerson tangles with Gary Roosevelt the same night and is at West N'lHSC rival Lafayette risks its mart, at North Central Conference foe Anderson | to start too! Stray Slants On Sports BY JOHN STREY Berries Don't Panic Easily It's always gratifying to win the first one that pushes your team off in the right direction in the difficult North Central conference competition. That sentiment is echoed by everybody connected with the Logansport basketball setup . . . But it's like "icing on lhe cake" when the victim is Central of Muncie. For Logansport athletic teams don't whip the Bearcats into line very often m any sporting activity . , . The basketball record has been particularly in the red with only two triumphs in lhe last 14 years. •a * * Berry fans had better become accustomed to frenzied finishes such as they saw Friday night. This crop of Berries obviously doesn't panic easily. They'll make some mistakes and stumble around for a lime, but don't write them off until the final horn . . . Have you ever seen a youngster with more ice water in his veins than Ronnie Jones at the free throw line during clutch situations? . . . That certainly was one with 46 seconds left and the score tied 69-all. But Ron calmly converted his sixth and seventh free toss without a miss to clinch It. » * .
