Friday Evening, December 13, 1957. Stray Slants On Sports BY JOIIN STREY Preddy Has Mixed Emotions You can't blame the Berries' Student Manager Bob Preddy for entertaining mixed emotions about tonight's Logansport-Frankfort struggle. The likeable senior youngster transferred to LHS this fall from the home of the Hot Dogs . . . "No question who I'll be pu'ling for," Preddy said, "but I hope Frankfort doesn't get beat too badly." . . . Bob was a member of the Frankfort "B" team last year that edged the Bee Berries, 34-31. He contributed six points to the winners' cause . . . Logansport baseball coach Rex Hunter, meanwhile, is happy to have Preddy on our side. He led the Hot Dog nine in batting Icist year and is reputed to be a proficient second baseman.

Berries Nearly Upset Culver Wrestlers Lose 25-23 Decision A young Logansport high school wrestling team, learning new tricks each time out under the supervision of Coach Joe Patac- sil, nearly upset Culver Military Academy Thursday night at Culver, but eventually bowed, 25 to 23. The improvement shown by the squad as a -wliole was gratifying to the popular little mentor, who is working hard to give LJ-IS a good team in this newly added sport. It also served to buoy hopes of the Berries who will open the home campaign at the old gym next Tuesday night at 7 o'clock against Madison Heights of Anderson. The Berries tallied four pins in this third road trip of the season, Ronnie Shoemaker, 95 poundor; Buddy Moore, 103 pounds; Mike Bcrndt, 112 pounds and heavyweight Al Thomas scoring the pins. Shoemaker has been the most consistent of the Berry grapplers and now has four pins in a row to his credit. He got his fourth yesterday in jus 37 seconds. Culver won all the reserve group matches as their more experienced halted the Berry freshmen and ! sophomores, most of them working in competition for the first time. Results of the match: VARSITL MATCH 95 pounds — Shoemaker (L) sinned Hurjntz (C) 37 seconds. Phil Dickens Is Reinstated CHICAGO (UP) — Phil Dickens, Odle Speaks At Church Don J.
