Eighteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Thursday Evening, December 19, 1957. Once-Beaten Elkhart At Berry Bowl Friday Stray Slants On Sports BY JOHN STBEY South Bend Central Wins No. 36 Frankfort Scribe Comments Len Beeghley. who pens the Frankfort Hot Dogs athletic fortunes, this week tossed' in some kind words about a pair of Logansport residents. He says: "Dynamic Larry Cart looks like an All-North Central Conference guard to these eyes. He can kill you in a half dozen ways before you can say Jack Robinson . . . Keith Showalter, the former Logansport coach, is now just a teacher in the school to which he brought so many trophies. There is a darned good coach going to waste." End of quote . . . Thanks for your comments, Len. We know they're appreciated. Frankfort, incidentally, may have a legitimate gripe if Larry Moudy doesn't repeat as an all-league choice. That fellow hits 'cm long or short . . . Moudy certainly fattens his average against Logansport. The 6-2 center connected for 21 points in leading the Hot Dogs to a two-point victory last year. So he hikes his production to 25 markers in this most recent Frankfort success. The Berries' repealed basketball failures in this Frankfort series now have attained the ridiculous stage. It doesn't seem to matter what kind of personnel perform for -the two NCC rivals. Frankfort just goes ahead and wins anyway In 68 previous meetings, the Berries have copped jusl 15 victories. Simple arilhme-tic gives the Hot Dogs 53 triumphs . . . Coach Showalter knew what he was doing when the home and home arrangement was reduced to a single Frankfort-Logansport conflict every season.

Only three of the nation's lop dozen teams were in action Wednesday night and two of them lost—on their rivals' courts. Un- ranlced Wichita whipped loth-rated UCLA, 83-68, at Wichila, Kan., and Illinois downed Rice, 85-82, in a thriller at Champaign, 111. . The loss was the first for UCLA but the third in five games for Rice which is rated 12th in the country. At the same time, ninth-ranked Maryland had maters all its way on its College Park, Md., walloping Navy, 88-58, for No. 5 in a row. And rugged Louisville whipped Marquette, 73-65, at Louisville, Ky. Wichita threw up a tight defense! n the second half to overcome a 41-34 halftime deficit and score its fifth victory in six games. Wichita went ahead of the Pacific Coast Conference title contenders, 62-61, on a free throw by Don Locke with seven minutes and 53 seconds remaining and never was headed thereafter. Wichita's Al Tate and UCLA's Ben Rogers shared scoring honors with 19 points each. Illinois, shaping up as a strong Big Ten contender despite the fact that it does not have a good big man, had a 45-41 lead over Rice at the half and was tied but never headed in the second half.

Hard Work Ahead for Buckeyes COLUMBUS, Ohio (UP)-Coaeh Woody Hayes, disturbed over a growing casualty list, today prescribed plenty of work arid sweat for his national champion Ohio State Buckeyes before meeting Oregon in the Rose Bowl. New Year's Day. Hayes pinned his hopes on the Southern California sunshine working its healing powers on the squad, which numbered eight injured players prior to Ohio State's departure for Pasadena. The Buckeyes' No. 1 patient •was halfback Don Clark, their top scorer and ground gainer, who suffered a groin injury against Purdue. Clark was the only doubtful starter for the Rose Bowl, however, barring further and more serious injuries. Not Indispensable Before Oregon supporters begin raising their hopes for an upset, it must be pointed out that the Buckeyes roiled over their two toughest opponents, Iowa and Michigan, without Clark. Although Clark's absence hurt, Hayes unveiled another standout running back for his grinding split-T offense. Taking over where Clark left off, sophomore fullback iBob White was a one-man wrecking crew against Iowa.

The only other time Oregon played at Pasadena was in 1917 when the Ducks beat Pennsylvania 14-0. In 1949, Oregon went" to the Coltor. Bowl when Norm Van Brocklin was its star and lost 21-13 to Southern Mehodist. Teddy Beats Mantle Afield CHICAGO, PUP) — Ted Williams beat Mickey Mantle again today —in tne fielding department, of all places.. Williams wound up the 1957 season a .995 defensive average, committing only one error in 218 total chances, according to official American League fielding averages released by the Howe News Bureau, while Mantle had a .979 mark, with seven errors in 337 chances. Only two regular AL outfielders posted better fielding averages ;han Williams.

He gamed 66 games Bill Gardner of Baltimore edged Nellie Fox of Chicago at second base by one point. Gardner fielded .987 and Fox .986. At shortstop, Joe Demaestri of Kansas City had a bigger margin over runnerup Gil McDougald of the Yankees. Demaestri compiled of the 68 yards covered in the drive. The trip to the Rose Bowl will be the second in four years for Hayes. His 1954 unbeaten powerhouse crushed Southern California, 20-7, in the rain and mud. Eight Straight Victories Hayes believes this Buckeye team has fewer stars but works better as a unit than the 1954 squad. Its record speaks for itself, eight straight victories after an opening loss to Texas Christian. The main ingredients for the Ohio State success werp the development of sophomores like White in the backfield, end Jim Houston and tackle Jim Marshall on the line and a slightly greater emphasis on passing with quarterback Frank Kremblas. The Buckeyes' secret of winning comes from the absence of damaging fumbles and pass interceptions. Kremblas had only one aerial intercepted all .season. The term "fawn" is used to de scribe the young of rabbits, caribou, mule deer, white-tailed deer, red deer and antelope.

Baltimore finished second with .981 and the Yankees 'and Tigers lied for third place with .980 each. The Yankees led in double plays with 183, while Cleveland committed the most errors, 153.

Coach Max Bell wasn't feeling chipper last Friday either, particularly after his Elkhart team lost its unbeaten status to neighborhood rival, Mishawaka, 65 o 54. The Blue Blazers previously had scored four one-sided triumphs without drawing a deep breath. Victims included East Chicago Roosevelt, 69-130; Nappanee, 57-34; LaPorte, 56-12; and Columbus, 6445. Leader of the Elkhart attack is a 5-B'A senior guard, Jim Swathwood. He's been consistent, loo, canning seven field goals in each of the five games to maintain an 18.4 point average. Joining Swathwood in the starting lineup will be Tom McDowell, 6-0 senior; and Steve Reim, 6-1 junior, at forwards; Jim Lichlenberger, 6-3M; senior at center; and hart's spacious gym, but couldn't find the solution to Larry Cart, who managed to snipe 22 points.
