INDIANA 46072 Muncie Burris 74 Tipton 57 Muncie Burris Wins tie Game By Eldon Cage Tribune Sports Ed tor * Tipton High School Gymnasium — A tall, hot shootinj Muncie Burris basketball quintet invaded the Satan' Lair Friday [night and captured the Central Indiana Conference game 74-57 before about 2500 fans. - j Shannon Kennedy, the Owls 6*1" Veteran Guard centered 13 of 31 field goal attempts and hit 4-5 at the free throw line for 30 points to offset the Devils Jim York's 22 points gathered on 813 from the field and |6-8 from the charity stripe. Tim Clouser had 13 hard earned points, Bob Richardson and Jeff Juday 8 each, Sullivan 4 and Mike Jackson 2. Burris collected 42J rebounds to the Satans 30, but the most damaging factor was the Devils 16 errors against Muncie's 8. Too, the Owlshit30-6Sjforateam average of .434 while jthe Devils hit only 22-62 for a.354average. York opened the scoring with a fielder 10 seconds jafter Bob Richardson controlled the initial tip from 6*6" Howard Blood. The lead changed hands four times and the score was tied five times until Kennedy got a J3iree -point play just before the'end of the First Stanza to make the count 22-19Burris. This three pointer helped the Owls keep a slight lead in the second quarter and the half ended 40-38 Burris. j Tipton led the scope at 40 to open the third quarter and then the basketball turned to butter for the Satans and six turnovers aided Burris to a 57-44 lead, which they were not only able to protect but increased during the final quarter as the Devils shooting kept turning colder. This leaves Tipton with a 1-2 record as they tune up for three consecutive weekend double-bills. The Owls are 2-3 for the season. Marion's tall Giants invade Tipton tonight (Saturday) and Coach John Moses and his crew will be magicians to hold the Giants, but it just could be done, Tipton has conquered bigger games before. .

This made the sixth straight win for the new Trojan basketball team and they are after their seventh in a. row tonight (Saturday) against visiting Marion Bennett. Twine-tickling twins, Dave Harding (23 points) and Jim Martin (21 tallies) paced the Trojans to a 19-12 first quarter lead and then ; teammates Rick Cyphers, Jeff Modisett, Steve Vandiver, Jeff Harlow,- Roger Whitehead, Steve Butler and Rod Johnson chipped in with the sweets to make the big Sugar Pie 92 points. Too, Coach Harding inserted Tom Reese, Martin Funkhouser, Roler and Watkins to make the lucky 13 roster. The Trojans probably . could have gone over the 100 point mark against the real good Taylor team if Coach Harding had not been looking ahead to other games and other years by giving more boys experience. After the 19-12 first canto lead, the Trojans pulled to a 16 point margin 47-31 at the half and then with new faces in the lineup kept the increase to the 19 point win. The little Trojans had tough luck hitting the hoop and lost their battle with the Taylor reserves. TAYLOR TITANS Masonic Temple j ing, December 7:30 o'clock.

Parking Policies Change At By Kathy Heatoh Teen Reporter During activity period Monday, the principal of the high school, Mr. Dorman Rogers spoke to those students who drive to and from school. Mr. Rogers congratulated the students saying that as a whole they have done a good job keeping down conjestion in the parking lot and following rules. He attributed part of this to the relief of the paved area. Some problems still exist however. Students were asked not park next to the building or in the drive directly in front of the school and not to purposely block- in other vehicles. It was also stated that some students have reported missing valuables that had been left in the car. Drivers were reminded that cars should be locked when valuables are left inside. A change has been put into effect concerning students who work and all-day students. In the past all students have parked in the north parking lot. As of Monday, those who are on the ICT program are to continue parking in the north lot, exiting by Park Road only. Those students remaining at the school all day are asked to park in the east parking lot, exiting by way of Park Road or utilizing the south exit. Ample space should be left between the building and the front row to allow for truck delivery. Students parking on the east lot are asked not to park south of room 122 and are to follow the buses from the premises. Mr. Rogers told the students that upon completion on the new school to the south of the high school, all parking lots will be paved and completed. Lights will also be installed at that time.

Jehs, Indianapolis, has been appointed Field Agent for the Indiana Division, Indiana State Library. Mr. Jehs received his B.A. and M.A. degrees from Indiana University in 1964 and 1965, respectively. He is now completing work on his doctoral dissertation for the Ph.D. in American history. He began his duties at the State Library on November 16. Mr. Jehs explained the duties and the goals of the Indiana Division as follows: The Field Agent of the Indiana Division is responsible for the collection of Indiana source materials. These are added to the Library's collection and made available to its many and varied patrons. For example, Mr. Jehs has Just recently returned from Washington, D. C. where be helped organize the congressional papers of Rep. E. Ross Adair for shipment to the State Library in Indianapolis. With regard to the collection of manuscripts, however, it is important to note that, by themselves, papers and letters outlining the ideas and activities of prominent historical figures, while very important, are no longer considered sufficient in historical research. Recent trends in the study of history require an ap-. proacb which takes into account the thoughts and reactions of the com man man to historicalevents. The Indiana Division is therefore especially interested in manuscript material that will interpret the lives and events of the average Hoosier as well as those of prominence. Records from fraternal, religious, social, economic, and political organizations; diaries; business records; maps; and photographs all constitute manu­ script materials which have value in terpreting our Hoosier heritage. Letters are quite valuable no matter what their date. If anyone wishes to donate such manuscript materials but does not want them opened to the public, the materials can be sealed for a specified number of years, according to the wishes of the donor. ! Fewer and fewer Hoosiers, however, preserve their impressions or record their activities in written form. With the advent of modern means of communication and travel, writing long letters or keeping a diary are no longer practiced as they were In the 19th century. The Indiana Division, therefore, has begun a program of oral history interviews in which the reactions and reminiscences of Hoosiers are tape-recorded. Everyone, from a soldier of World War I; to.a Vietnam veteran, an observer or participant in the social or political activities of the Twenties or Thirties, or of some event of historical importance which occurred as recently, as yesterday, is potentially valuable for ah oral history interview. j i l The Indiana Division has facilities for copying materials by. Xerox or microfilm should a donor wish to keep the originals. Such records are preserved in a fire-proof vault and made available for the researcher. If anyone has materials that he feels should be preserved, or if he knows of anyone who could be the subject of an oral history Interview, he can contact Randall W. Jehs, Field Agent, Indiana State Library, 140 North Senate Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana 46 204.
