The Frankfort Hot Dogs—always formidable basketball foes for'Logansport—will visit the Berry Bowl Friday night. Despite their unimpressive 0-2 North Central conference record, the Hot Dogs figure to extend the Berries, who are shooting for a.second league conquest to accompany last week's, memorable triumph over previously unbeaten Central of Muneie. fort's biggest weapon, several other performers bear dose watching, particularly a little 5-9 guard, Raymond Wilson. Scouts report Wilson is an accurate shooter and clever ball handler and feeder. Joining him in the back court will be either Larry Good, 5-5, or Jirn Hackard, 5-8. Moucly's assistants up front are a pair of 6-1 boys, Freshman Doug Reid and Senior Tim Unger. Frankfort may be better than its 2-3 record indicates. The Hot Dogs hit 42 percent to down West Lafayette, 61-56 and knocked Crawfordsville from the unbeaten ranks last Saturday, 45-44, although banking in only IB.5 percent of its 68 shots. Frankfort's two conference setbacks were administered by a red- hot Kokomfl quintet, 81-41, when Jimmy Ray! clipped 33 points and by potent' Tech of Indianapolis, 7759. The other loss came on opening night to Zionsville, 55-54. The program will be the final NCC appearance for Logansport 'this year. The Berries won't take up the chase again until January 10 when a visit io Kokomo's Memorial gymnasium is on the docket. Officials for the varsity contest will be Walt McFatridge of Xoko- mo and Tom Dean of Wabash. Whistling the "B" team prelimi- The Berries know they must contain Larry Moudy, Frankfort's all-conference selection last year, if they expect to prevail over the visitors from Clinton county. Playing his fourth season of varsity ball, Moudy at 6-2V 2 has registered 112 points in five appearances. The senior, who is deadly from the corner, scored 15 against Zionsville: 28 against. West Lafayette: 19 against Kokomo: 22 against Tech of Indianapolis; and 18 against Crawfordsville. • Moudy was instrumental in Frankfort's thrilling 57 to 55 defeat of Logansport last year at Howard Hall. He rammed home nine field goals and three free tosses for 2.1 points- in that one. Berries Beady But Coach Jim Jones reports the Berries sailed through several satisfying practice sessions this week and appear ready to turn their high powered offense against Frankfort's customary zone defense. One change may appear in the Logansport lineup Friday night, unless Forward Jim Moss recovers from *an injured muscle. John Gibson, a sensational relief performer in recent games, will draw the starting nod in that case.

Area Cage Results MARION STOPS PERU PERU—Marion's Giants, apparently on the beam after a rocky early season star", rambled past the Peru Bengal Tigers in a free scoring basketball show here Wednesday night 67 to 40. The Giants, rebuilding this year much as the same as Peru, worked into a 16-7 first quarter lead, made it 29-12 at halftime, winged on to a 49-27 third period ed g e and swept to victory.

We regret ,o say that for the first time since taking over the position of secretary for the conference sports writers and radio broadcasters association, there will be no AK-NCC team selected . . . The reason boils down to this fact—only five all-star ballots out of 20 were returned to us by members in other cities. We figured that number would scarcely produce a representative list of outstanding football players. said. have too much sentiment for Michigan State. I don't believe I could leave Michigan State and go anywhere." Daugherty made his announcement brief. "I don't ha-e much to say," he told newsmen assembled in a hotel corridor, "except that I'm going to stay at Michigan Stale." "I think the .Texas A&M job is a wonderful opportunity," he said, "and I would recommend it to another coach who wants a great opportunity, someone who might not be completely satisfied where he is. There are no finer people than those down there." Daugherty said that he ha.d "pretty much" made up his mind Tuesday night to turn down the A&M job. He received the offer Monday when he was in Houston for an appearance at the A&M quarterback club meeting, and Tuesday night spoke in Rochester, N.Y. He said that he did not talk to Stray Slants On Sports BY JOHN" STREY It's difficult to pin-point the apparent lack of return this season, because in previous years, about 90 per cent of tlie ballots were completed . . .

Daugherty is a professor of physical education, health and recreation at Michigan State and has no contract. "They could relieve me as football coach at any time," he said, "But I would retain my professorship." He said he did not want lo comment on reports that the Aggie offer might entail as much as $60,000 a year, but he said he believed the job would be "wonderful." The Aggie job was left vacant two 'weeks, ago when Paul (Bear) Brya'nt asked for his release so that he could become head coach at Alabama.
