i'age 4 •Coge-o/ogy Larry Matingly Tansy -Yeary C/C Wrestling ' Dr. Boyd Burkhart ,Vr* ww> By ElJqn Cage, Tribune Sports Editor' Larry Mattingly, Upton route 5, a farmer, former Basketball Referee from 1916 to 1935, and now on the Tipton County Planning Commission, was one of the great and dedicated referees in the era of one "whistle-tooter" per game and some times the one referee would call two to three games a night, if the school schedules called for Varsity, Reserve, Girls and or Grade School games. Too, Larry would travel several miles to call Independent and Semi-Pro basketball games in Indiana and neighboring states. To look at Larry today, you would almost believe he could still referee a game today as he appears in fine fettle and only wears glasses to read. He has hundreds of exciting and humorous stories about the "Olden Basketball Days." C-0 The February issue of the Hot Rod Magazine carries a full colored page (page. 68) on the Vending Machine of Steven tansy and Glen Yeary,, Tipton men. Tansy owns and operates the Speed Shop on Ash Street, in Tipton. The Vending Machine body is made from Coca Cola bottle coin machine boxes and the engine is a 1965 Corvette unit. The unit cost $10,000 to build and has been displayed a^many car shows. C-0 Tipton High School's varsity wrestling team placed seventh in last Saturday's Carmel Invitational.

Prelims are scheduled for. the morning session and finals for the afternoon. Tipton is the defending champion school.

FARM SERVICE BUREAU -Pm COMPLETE CAR CARE BERRYMAN PIKE TIPTON By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer • HEW YORK (UPI)— This is directed toward all the bleeding hearts. Relax.! Quit bleeding. Thi corpet gets-all messed up that way. J.)' I'm talking aboutv those bleeders over the Baseoali Hall of Fame's latest election. Or the non-election. You heard so much moaning or wailing in your life. From of the long faces and of I anguished questions rather .never many some downed South Alabama, 91-76; lOth-ranked Western Kentucky whipped Austin Peay, 117-72; llth-ranked Utah State defeated Long Island University, 82-74; 12th-ranked Oregon was upset by Pacific Eight rival Washing-' ton, 82-75; 13th-ranked Kentucky beat Alabama, 86-73; and 18th-ranked - Memphis State topped Loyola of the South, 8468. Jacksonville placed six players in double figures in turning back South Alabama for its 13th . victory. • ; in 15 games. Artis Gilmore, the Dolphis' 7-foot-2 center, paced his team with 15 points and also collected 19 rebounds. However, game scoring honors went to South Alabama's Andy Denny who had 22 points. Jim McDaniels, a ' 7-fobt center, | scored 31 points for Western Kentucky, which snapped a two-game losing streak by routing. Ohio Valley Conference rival Austin Peay. The Hilltoppers rolled to a 28-9 lead with less than two minutes gone in the first half and led by as much as 52 points in the second- half. Utah State connected on 63 per cent of its - shots in the second half to. break open a tight defensive battle With LIU and roiled to its 11th consecutive victory.j Marv Roberts paced the Aggies with 22 points. Washington never trialed in handing Oregon only its third loss in 13 games. The Huskies were led by Steve Haas with 24 points, but Oregon's Stan Love took game scoring honors with 35 points. Kentucky trailed Alabama by six points early in the second half but outscored. the,Crimson Tide 20-7 in the final six minutes [to post its 12th victory in 15 games. Kent Hollonbeck led the wildcats with 21 points." Don Holcomb scored 23 points and Larry Finch added 21 as Memphis State wpn easily to boost its record to 13-3. ' In] other games, Dayton downed St. Louis, 81-71; Niagara . topped DePaul, 83-72; * Mississippi State beat Georgia, 67-66, in overtime; Florida routed Mississippi, .106-86; Kansas State defeated Oklahoma, 78-7Q; and Oregon State edged Washington State, 78-73. ..' that greeted Bowie Kuhn, the baseball! commissioner, as soon as he announced nobody had been elected,' you'd have thought | h'e bad officially and permanently cancelled New Year's Eve. To begin with, Bowie Kuhn has nothing to do with the Kail of Fame J election. The actual electing; is done by members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America. . ' . I couldn't help but notice that those who were • the most worked | up by the fact nobody had received the -required 75 pr cent of ' the. vote, those who labored hardest to extract some manifestation of disappointment from Bowie Kuhn over -the result jofj the balloting, were younger'people. ' '•••!• I V : Rockets Unhappy By United Press International It hasn't been' a very happy new year for the San Diego .Rocketsj but their time for- celebration has - finally arrived. The Rockets snapped a. 10. game losing streak Monday night by | beating the Buffalo Braves, j 114-106, and the victory marked the return to action of guard Larry Siegfried, who had missed J29J games because of an ankle injury. : Siegfried put in a strong 30 minutes I |as he scored five points jaiid picked up five, assists while taking some of the pressure off the! Rockets' backcourt duo of Calvin Murphy, andjs:u Lantz. The Rockets, who have won' two games this month, trailed by nine] points' at the half but rallied Ibihind the shooting of Lantz and Elviri Hayes to overhaul the' Braves in the second half. Lantz was especial-. ly effective, hitting . for 37 points, while Hayes scored 21 points and grabbed 25 rebounds. . In"' the j only , other National Basketball Association' game, Cleveland jupset Boston, 117-116. In the piuy America Basketball .Association'contest, Memphis defeated Carolina, 115-107. Rookie Dave Sorenson's 25- foot shot rat the buzzer enabled the Cavaliers: to win their eighth, game of the season. Sorenson.j who came off the . bench tp score 10 fourth quarter.' points, took a . pass from Bobj Washington, who had picked . up a loose ball in the backcourt; and tossed in the winning field goal as the buzzer sounded. | ; "Have No Concept Now I have nothing against- young people. They are, after all, our hope and old people of the future, but listening to them question Kuhn I got the distinct feeling they wouldn't know country slaughter from country music, there was a good chance they had never seen fellows like Early Wynn or Ralph Kiner; play and they had little or no concept at all what baseball's Hail of Fame is all about. Bowie Kuhn* said yes, there always is a measure of dissapppointment when nobody is elected but that fact in itself, he added illustrates the integrity of the voting system and as such he's satisfied with it. I think his answer is perfect. Yogi Berra, Early Wynn and Ralph Kiner are all good men and true.The chanfes are all eventually will get into the hall and the fact it hasn't been easy will make them appreciate the accomplishment . all the more. Isn't that always the way -in life? Berra, Wynn and Kiner all were' disappointed by their failure to get in this time but if they stop and think about it a minute and put aside their own personal feelings, which is difficult if not impossible to to, they may be able to understand why they did not .get in this time around. As Yogi, on the ballot for the first time, said himself: "Even Joe DiMaggio didn't . make it the first time." Wynn . was truly a great pitcher, and is certainly a legitimate Hall of Famer. If he thinks, back however, he'll remember that as' good a pitcher as he was he still took the better part of five years to make it to the big leagues with Washington. And Washington was looking high and low for pitchers a the time because the only club in the league that was worse was Philadelphia. . Nothing Comes Easy Kiner also knows nothing comes easy. Nothing good, anyway. He didnT step into pro ball and begin hitting home runs right away. He's a fine sportscaster today but that took time, too. The key word is patience. It's a tough word for most everybody. Elmer Flick was 87 when he was, elected in 1963 and he said "1 figured I was too old for anybody • to remember me anymore." He wasn't though. Joe Medwick, after repeated disappointments finally made the Hall of Fame in 1968 and nobody was any prouder. "It was like a 20-year slump," he said. "I never had a slump like that before." But he snapped it because true worthiness generally is recognized in any field no matter how long it takes. Some of those bleeding hearts should bear that in mind and bind up their wounds. They won't mess up the rug that way.
