Berries Outlast Peru Tigers In 75-74 Squeak Third Period Spurt Needed to Nip Bengals Larry Jones Rescues Locals With Clutch Rebound and Free Throws in Final Minute. It was a game of rallies and was a game counter-rallies that could have gone either way at the finish. It was typical neighborhood basketball struggle between Logansport and Peru. The Berries, visiting their Central Indiana conference foe Tuesday night for the annual get-together, escaped with a 75 to 74 conquest of the Peru Tigers. Logan was forced to call on all their resources, after discovering it had a Tiger by the tail and went to the dressing room at halfMme with a five point deficit at 36 to 31. But Coach Jim Jones brought his cagers out hustling to start the er 30 to 18 and took the Junior- third quarter and with the aid of j Varsity match 36-5.

Stray Slants On Sports BY JOHN STREY The Berries unfortunately are scheduled to play at New Castle this year. That means one more game in the tiny YMCA gym which the Trojans call home . . . Coach Jim Jones was hoping the new million dollar goal hail would be ready for the January 24 North Central Conference attraction. But construction was delayed until the bond issue to build the physical education plant was sold. Successful bidder for the $875,000 bond issue was an Indianapolis-Chicago combine at an interest rate of -1.29 per cent . . . Completion of this business was a signal for the contractors to prepare excavations at the 42-acre sonthside campus on Parkview Drive in New Castle.

Only 28 second remained when Larry Jones batted home a rebound to give the Berries a 73 to 70 cushion. But it wasn't, enough. Grandstaff hit for Peru and the Scoreboard clock blinked 73 to 72 and eight seconds left. Larry Jones again came to Logansport's rescue and pitched through a pair of free tosses. Peru still wasn't finished battling. Fred Fechtman banked one in from mid- court and quit only when time ran out. Coach Ray Geyer's Tigers, winners only once in five previous starts, didn't shoot like a downtrodden ball club. They fired a 49 percenter at the Berries on 29 baskets in 63 tries. Logansport settled for 38.5 percent with 32 of 83 field goal attempts. Peru also outshot the locals from the foul line with 16 of 23, while the Berries tallied only 11 of £0. Cart nipped Grandstaff for scoring honors, 21 to 19. Other double figure possessors were Ron Jones and Larry Jones, 13 for the Berries; Ernie Ran-ge, 16, Dick Westafer 15 and Fred Fechtman 12 for the Bengals. The Bee Berries rallied after trailing Peru 21 to 16 at the half and finally registered a 41 to 32 victory in the preliminary. Mike Tuberty showed the way with 16 Logansport R. Jones B. Jones points.

Prior to the start of the varsity show, Coach Patacsil introduced members of both squads by weight divisions and had two of the Berry performers give a demonstration on how points are counted in the sport for the enlightenment of the crowd, most of them watching such a show for the first time. Apparently they found it much to their liking, The Broncos, also state finalists last March, received two first- place votes. Indianapolis Tech, with an even 100 points, was fourth and high- scoring Jeffersonville, with the three other first places good for 10 points each, completed the upper bracket of the "Big Ten" in fifth place with 82. 24 Are Nominated Next, in order, came Fort Wayne South, Terre Haute Garfield, Kokomo, Evansville Bosse, and Madison. All with the exception of Kokomo went into this week's action undefeated. The experts nominated 24 quintets for the initial poll, the same number as in the first roll call Berries' Football Coach Harvey Roberts was pleased to learn the New Castle football stadium will be ready next fall by the time Logansport makes the long haul to Trojan town for an October 10 ball game ... It was difficult playing at New Castle under poor lighting conditions in recent years.

Erection of the new structure will be welcomed by all North Central Conference schools and particularly by New Castle fans themselves. For they've struggled along through the years with but 2,200 seating capacity . . . Such limited facilities forced school officials to set up a ticket draw for home games.

However, he said th withdrawal 5f California, UCLA and Southrn California will not have any effect on the Big Ten for "at least a year" because the teams will remain with the Pacific circuit until 1959. He said the contract for the next ;wo Rose Bowl games "would remain intact" and that any differences in standards between the ,wo conferences would not prevent them from playing one another. Reed said this was because the Big Ten did not try to set standards of conduct for other leagues.
