Page 4 THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE Trojans Jelling Under £ Chemist-Coach Harding By Eldon Cage Tribune Sports Editor SHARPS VILLE — Tri-Central High School Basketball Coach John Harding has been working about 20 young Trojans in the old SharpsviUe school gym in a test-tube type practice on varied systems t>f offense and defense for the past three weeks attempting to jell a squad for the opening game of the season Saturday night with the Clinton Central Bulldogs at the new Tri- Central gym. Coach Harding has tutored four of the first ten players when they were SharpsviUe-Prairie team members last year. The other six were Windfall Dragons. But after watching the newly jelled Trojans going through a workout or two, Harding would have to be classified as a chemist in that be has taken the ten ingredients and made a nice Trojan product of them and also has several ingredients leftover, namely six Junior Varsity, players who can be inserted into the product when the demand is there and necessary to improve the total product. Any coach would find this a nice situation to be in, having three players to fight it out for each team position. The new Trojans do have some good size and some experience and only game experience during the next three months will determine just how good and strong this squad will be for sectional tourney play. > The first 16 team men are as follows with height, weight and class: Jeff Modisett 6' 2" - 180 - 11 Jeff Harlow 6* 1" - 185 - 10^ Rick Cyphers 6' 2" - 240 - 11 Dave Harding 6' -170-11.

Indiana's freshman football team will be shooting for its first winning season since the frosh schedule was started in 1966 when it meets Northwestern here Friday afternoon. Kickoff is set for 2:45 in I.U. Stadium with admission free to the east stands. The Hoosiers, 1-1 in 1966 and 1968 and 0-2 in 1967 and 1969, go into the final at 1-1 on a 14-6 loss at Illinois and a pleasing 5 T 0 shutout of Ohio State. The young Wildcats are 0-2 with Wisconsin and Purdue. The Hoosiers, who have gone to a Wishbone offense, pin their hopes for a 2-1 record on a running game built around workhorse fullback Ken St. Pierre, a bright . 6-1, 210-pound prospect from Danvers, Mass. St. Pierre carried 29 times to a net of 109 yards against the Buckeyes, giving him a total of 45 carries and 165 yards in the two games. Running backs Ken Starling and Lofell Williams have not been as consistent but have chipped in with the big play on occasion. "Walk-on" quarterback Steve Mason is also a dangerous running threat, grossing 106 yards in the two games. Another Hoosier asset is a big and agile line, both on offense and defense. The offense averages out up front to 216 pounds, while the defense, beefed up by 6-7, 280-pound Carl Barzilaus- kas, figures out a sturdy 230 pounds per man. Against Ohio State the defensive play of halfbacks Marc Bailey and Gary Powell, safely Larry Wright and linebacker Bruce Henderson also stood out. Pacers Lose Daniels Temporarily INDIANAPOLIS ( U P I ) Mel Daniels of the Indiana Pacers has left the team temporarily because of a damage suit against him in his hometown od Albuquerque, N.M. Daniels was named defendant in a $50,000 suit on charges of striking another player during a basketball game in the summer of 1968. The charges were brought by Terry Bland, also of Albuquerque. The Pacers were to leave today for a two-game road trip to Pittsburgh and Raleigh, N.C. Pacer general manager John Weissert said Daniels may be able to rejoin the team by Saturday in Raleigh, depending upon how long the trial lasts. League statistics released Wednesday show Daniels continues to lead> the American Basketball Association in rebounding with an 18.3 average per game. He has grabbed 238 rebounds in 13 games. Daniels ranks eighth in league scoring with a 21.6 average and Indiana's Roger Brown is 10th with 20.1. The leading scorer in the ABA is Mack Calvin of the Floridians with a 29.1 average.

The two rookies from the University of Kentucky calmly led a fourth-quarter rally that enabled the Kentucky Colonels to defeat the Virginia Squires 128-123 Wednesday night in an American Basketball Association game. The victory came after Colonels' Coach Gene Rhodes was notified that he was fired due to a dispute with General Manager Mike Storen.

Sonny IDove paced New York with 35/ points. ROCKINGHAM. N.C. (UPIV- It's a good bet the American 500 NASCAR grand national stock car race at North Carolina Motor Speedway Sunday will decide division championships in four categories. Cancellation of the Texas 400; scheduled Dec. 6, took care of that. The 400-mile event at Texas International Speed way in Bryan, Tex., was called off Wednesday because of financial problems. The track's board of directors said efforts were being made, to secure a $2.5 million loan. The cancellation left only two grand national races on the 1970 calendar—the 500-mile event here" Sunday and a 100. miler at Langley Field Speedway in Hampton, Va„ Nov. 22. Dodge pilot Bobby Isaac was virtually assured his first grand national point championship by the cancellation. Isaac, from Catawba, N.C, leads the .point duel by a margin of 85 over Bobby Allison of Hueytown, Ala., another Dodge driver. A victory here Sunday is worth 150 points to the winner, with the value dropping three points between places. The Virginia race is worth 50 points to the winner with a one-point spread between places. The point championship is worth about $100,000. Sunday's $100,000 race also probably will decide the top money-winner, manufacturers championship and rookie of the year. Richard Petty of Randleman, N.C., the winningest driver in NASCAR history, leads the earnings division with $137,000 in 18 wins this season. The Plymouth driver is closely followed by teammate Pete Hamilton, of Dedham, Mass., who has racked up at least $130,000 in winnings this year. The winner Sunday will add at least $18,000 to his moneybag. Dodge continues its hold on the manufacturers point race with 288 to Plymouth's 281. Ford is out of contention with 179 points. There's a hotly contested three-way battle for rookie of the year honors in the grand national division, and it may go down to the checkered flag at Langley Field. Joe Frasson of Golden Valley, Minn., Jim Vandiver of Charlotte, N.C, and Bill Dennis of Glen Allen, Va., all have a shot at the rookie crown. AMERICANS IN PARIS PARIS (UPr -Arthur Ashe, of Gum Spring, Va., defeated Cliff Drysdale of South Africa, 6-1, 6-3, Wednesday in a quarter-final match of the Paris Open indoor tennis championships. .Cliff Richey of Dallas also advanced by defeating Pierre Barthes of France, 6-3, 6-2 in a second round match.

Chamberlain had 27 points, West 25 and Goodrich 24 as Los Angeles handed Detroit its first loss at home this season. Dave Bing*s 35 points led the Pistons but Bing missed a shot in the last two seconds that could have tied the score. Archie Clark had 30 points to lead Philadelphia over Baltimore, the Bullets' fourth loss in their last five games. Clark had 14 points in the third period as the 76ers built a 91-76 lead after three quarters. Wes Unseldhad 28 points for Baltimore. Stu Lantz scored 38 points and Elvin Hayes had 29 before being ejected for fighting early '. in the second half as the Rockets beat rCincinnati.
