Twelve Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Tuesday Evening. December 17, I95T. jury-Ridden Loganberries Invade Peru Tonight Line-Up Shuffled For Tiger Clash Logansport's Berries, nursing a rash of injuries to key players, invade the Peru Tigers' domain tonight, shooting for their fourth victory in six starts thus far in the basketball season. Jim Moss, out of school with a .severe cold, and Billy Cuppy, who suffered a sprained ankle during the weekend, will be missing from action in the annual clash with the Bengal Tigers. Ron Jones, 6-5 senior star, is still nursing a knee injury suffered in last Friday's loss to the Frankfort Hot Dogs, and Coach Jim Jones revealed Tuesday that forward Butch Jones suffered a sprained ankle Monday night, leaving him with a limp too. Although neither Jones is expected to miss the game, the wave of injuries has caused Coach Jones to shuffle his line-up to include his 6-6 senior, Jim Fiedler. Fiedler will start at center, with Ron Jones moving to forward •with Butch Jones. Senior Larry Cart will b; at one guard post, •while the other will be filled by either -Dave Dickerson or Jimmy Sweet, both 5-8 speedsters. The Berries: adversary for the night will be seeking to snap out of a losing habit which has seen them drop four of their five starts this season. Coach Ray Geyer's crew, which bowed, to Hartford City last Saturday, 71-54, will probably employ the same offensive weave NCC All Games Games W Lafayette Z Indpls Tech 2 Kokomo 2 Muncic Central 1 Marion 1 Logansport 1 Richmond 1 Frankfort ...........1 New Castle 0 Anderson 0 Games Tuesday Logansport at Peru L W 0 5 0 Dickens Urges Alumni: Hunt For Players Need Boys With Heart and Desire, Grid Coach Says INDIANAPOLIS (UP)^Indiana football coach Phil Dickens, ir. his ind"pl s Tech at Indpls Attucks Stray Slants On Sports BY JOHN STEEY Bronchos Eye Undisputed N'CC Lead 1 3 2 I ,2 3 2 3 first public appearance since he! won reinstatement by the Big Ten last week, Monday night urged Hoosier alumni to start hunting for personnel.

Hoosier High School Participation Rule Violators Punished INDIANAPOLIS (UP)—The first violations of Indiana's new high school basketball participation rule were reported Monday when the IHSAA meted out probations, to Bourbon and Hanover high schools. Hanover also was forced to for feit a victory. IHSAA Commissione L. V. Phillips said both schools reported using one player Dec. 3 for five periods in reserve and varsil.j games. A rule adopted by the IHSAA's athletic council Oct. 23 states a player cannot participate in more than four periods during one session. "We can't say too much -ight now," he said. "We have to get .ogether and view pictures of past ames and take a look at the reshmen." Dickens said the' planned construction of Indiana's new stadium, with a seating capacity of about 55,000, "can account for 30 or 40 per cent of recruiting boys." Assistant IU athletic director Bob Dro outlined three steps necessary to guarantee Indiana a winning football team; Locate a prospect, sell him on Indiana, trans- >ort him to the campus. "We need salesmen and saleswomen capable of selling prospective athletes on Indiana University," said Dro. Line coach Bob Hicks, who piloted the Hoosiers during the jast season in the absence of )ickens, praised has undermanned charges. "They gave us everything they lad," said Hicks. "We have no regrets."

(UP) — Jim Trimble denied a report today thai he will relinquish his coaching job with the Grey Cup champion Hamilton Tigercats to accept a similar post with the Chicago Cardinals of the National Football League. ; puted leadership will be the prize for Jeff of Lafayette, provided the Bronchos can slip past the upset- minded Frankfort Hot Dogs in a Wednesday night encounter at Frankfort's Howard Hall. Jeff is 2-0 in conference business and 5-0 overall, as a result oC last week's conquest of Ajiderson. But Frankfort apparently is jelling and has gained confidence since turning .back Logansport on the Berries' home court in a 61-57 struggle. * * * The only other NCC encounter will unfold Friday when the winless league, Fort ., Wayne Central to Marion and Greensburg to New Castle. * * * Three members dropped from the select group of unbeatens last week, but only one came as a real surprise.' That was Frankfort's shocking of the Berries, behind the 25-point production of Larry Moudy. Marion encountered even- geful Kokomo quintet and Richmond couldn't keep pace with hustling Muncie. Jimmy Rayl, Kokomo's "splendid splinter" unlimbered his firing arm for 29 points and maintained games won and two lost, his 28-point average for three! league contests. He has 84 tallies. the half. Both teams emerged from the game with 3-1 records. Wichita managed to hold off a final stanza rally by the Iowa Hawkeyes to salvage an 31-78 victory on their home floor. The Shockers held only a 37-36 halftime lead but opened up a sL\ point margin until the waning minutes of the 'contest when Iowa narrowed the gap to 79-78.

That headline fits John Strey, Pharos-Tribune sports editor. He slipped and fell Friday afternoon and fractured his left ankle. He missed the Frankfort game at the Bery Bowl Friday, his first sporting event since 1952. He will hobble around on crutches with a knee-high cast for several weeks.
