Tricks from all sources were responsible for the Delphi surge here. Tim-Clouser started the Devils rolling against the sticky Delphi zone defease with three fielders in the first three minutes of play. Bob. Richardson, Jim York and Bill Sullivan added swishers for . the Devils first stanza points. Tipton's own defense, was tougher and the touted Delphi Soph, Pat Manahan finally got his first points at 1:33 to go in the first quarter. Jim York pushed in eight tallies in the second quarter, Sullivan and Richardson four each and Clouser two. Manahan broke .loose too, in the second period for 11 tallies and Dave Huttonhit for four. Joe Achenbach got into the sco- 'ring act with six tallies in the t third period to help keep the Devil lead. Then in the fourth and blood, pressure pusher period, the Oracles went ahead 50-49 with 5:25 to go and here is where the class paid off. York tied the score at 50, then bit a jumper, Richardson canned two free ones, York meshed two freebees after Dan Isley drove for a fielder, York hit another two pointer and Tipton had a 61-54 lead. However, the clock still had more time and Isley and Manahan kept the pressure on the Satans with tallies to bring the count to 62-58 before the hard nose tutoring of control ball by Coach John Moses wrapped up the win. The Devils finished with 22-52 from the field, made seven errors had six steals, 24 rebounds and had 19-28 from the foul line. The Devils and Tri-Central Trojans now are in the challenging position for the Tipton County High School Championship as they play Friday 7 p.m. in the semifinals. = Summary DELPHI Roberson Yates Hutton -Blickenstaff Isley Groninger .

I hope Ui&l in nrj answer I may be able to give you a few words of comfort. We must be resigned to the fact that we shall never be able, to understand the ways of Almighty God - the crosses which He sends us, the sacrifices which He demands of us. We must have faith in His plans for our salvation and for the salvation "of our loved ones, and we must leave our lives and our future to His inscrutable Providence. .•<• God never sends us a cross too heavy for us to bear. He knows pur weakness and our strength, and He is all compassionate and all good. Life is not easy for any of us, but it is a challenge and it is up to us to pray, to resolve to be erect and strong and not be a burden to our family and our friends. If we.keep busy mentally and physically, we do not have time to dwell on the past and on what might have been, but we are filled -with a consuming passion to accomplish something worthwhile for the futurel In this way we turn our' heartaches into constructive efforts to lighten the sorrow of others. I am sure, dear Mrs. Shook, that God in His wisdojh and mercy will bring you solace and peace. I shall remember you in my prayers." Very sincerely, Mrs. Joseph P. Kennedy Mrs. Margaret L.
