e's Last-Quarter TO Trips Hard-Luck Pirates, 20-13 By DON AUSTIN Shelbyville's Golden Bears came up with a fourth-quarter touchdown, set up by two passes by their quarterback, Mike McKee, to break a 13-13 deadlock and hand the Greensburg Pirates their fourth straight setback, 2013, in a South Central Conference football game Friday night on the victors' field. Approximately 200 Jocal fans were on hand in the chilly 45- degree weather to see Coach Bill Bless' hard-luck crew battle back to a tie from a 13-0 deficit late in the first half, only to be edged out in another close affair that wasn't decided until Greensburg lost the ball on downs near midfield with about a minute to play. It was an exciting and evenly matched contest, as indicated by the statistics, the difference being an advantage in passing yardage to the hosts. This was a little surprising as the Pirates had demonstrated a better aerial attack in previous tilts while Shelby stayed on the ground mostly. A realignment of the locals' defense, which was so sorely lacking in the last two outings, paid off and resulted in only 158 yards rushing by Shelbyville, compared to 262 by Martinsville and 401 by Franklin last Friday. The switching of linemen and use of offensive standout Danny Jones as a defensive halfback shut off all but one of the long touchdown runs that cost the Tree City eleven the last two bait games. Ground Game With Jones and fullback Bill Tucker doing most of the carrying, the Buccaneers' ground game also looked better, netting Ker-Wood Music Exclusive Distributor For The Beautiful Wurlitizer IN DECATUR COUNTY • PIANOS . • ORGANS • RENTAL PURCHASE PLAN • GOOD USED ORGANS See Oar Selection Today Ker-Wood Music Shop South Side Square — Daily News Photo. SCORING JAUNT — Lorry McComment (42), Greensburg' halfback, is pictured as he crosses the goal line at the end of his 78-yard kickoff return behind fine downfield blocking late in the first half at Shelbyville Friday night. A Golden Bear pursuer is visible just behind him and another defender is on the ground behind them after being taken out by a block. Official in the background is just beginning his signal of a touchdown. 164 yards from scrimmage, but ace quarterback George Lanning, a topnotch passer, threw only nine tunes, completing five for a paltry 29 yards. Shelby quarterback McKee went to the air only eight times but completed four for 59 yards, including one for the Bears' first TD and the two in the fourth period for 18 and 13 yards that made the difference in the outcome. Longest run of the night, which provided the biggest thrill from a local standpoint, was a 78-yard kickoff return for a touchdown just before the end of the first half by speedy halfback Larry McCamment, who first fumbled the ball momentarily at the 22 yard line and then streaked untouched down the sidelines after the interference had formed in front of him. The downfield blocking on this particular play cleared the way well for McCamment's sprint, longest of the season for Greensburg. Jones' placekick for the ertra point was blocked by a hard- charging Shelby lineman, making the score at intermission time 13-6. The hosts, now 2-1 in conference play and 2-2 overall, scored their first six-pointer early in YOU r, INSURANCE A public service column about Property, Casualty and Auto Insurance By Maurice Moeller Decatur Insurance Agency, Inc. INSURANCE FOR FLOODS EXCLUDED A reader asks: "Can you please explain why flood and wave wash damage is not covered under my homeowners insurance policy?" Certainly; but first, let me say that the flood water damage exclusion is standard for practically every property insurance policy. It states that the policy does not cover damages caused by flood, surface water, tidal water or waves, overflow of streams or other bodies of water, or spray from any of the foregoing. Since flooding is a problem only to those persons who live near an ocean, lake or river, those who own homes away from the water have no need for such coverage. As a result, the cost of sharing the risk for flood damage would have to be apportioned among those living in highly vulnerable areas, making the premiums prohibitively high. Your automobile which can be moved away if flood waters threaten is covered for flood damage if you have a comprehensive automobile insurance policy and various marine insurance policies cover damage to watercraft caused by flooding. This column will be glad to answer questions you may have about property or casualty insurance.

Alan Goddard broke through to block Pat McKinny's attempted placekick for the PAT. The winners scored again late in the second period, after first being stopped at the nine yard marker by a fine Greensburg defensive stand. A local punt just after that traveled only out to the 30 and on the second play of the next series Bass took the ball on a reverse that fooled the Buc defense and scampered 26 yards to pay dirt. This time McKinny's boot was good, making the score 13-0. Second Half After McCamment's kickoff return had narrowed the difference to seven points, the Blessmen got a break early in the third stanza that led to the game-tying TD. A local drive stalled at the Bruin 35 and after two punts that were nullified by offside penalties against the Pirates, Goddard's third boot was fumbled at the 25, Mike See recovering for the Bucs. The Bears were then penalized for piling on, producing a first down at the 15, and after a three- yard run fullback Tucker swept his right end for the touchdown. Jones' placekick split the uprights and it was 13-all midway in the third canto. Shelbyville recovered another Greensburg fumble at the 27 later but gave the ball right back when Tucker upset McKee with a jarring tackle and McCam- ment fell on the pigskin at the 15. The Pirates moved to firsts on the 26, 42 and Shelby 49 but lost the ball when a gamble on a fourth-down-five situation failed, and the Bears marched to the final touchdown of the match from there in seven plays. An 11-yard carry by their John Chesser, a sophomore, took it to the 40 and after another seven- yard gainer McKee passed 18 yards to Bass for a first down at the 15. A 13-yard aerial to end Eddie Griffith moved it to the two yard marker, from where McKee sneaked over in two more plays. The kick by McKinny was good, making it 20-13, and that's the way it ended although almost five minutes remained on the clock. Greensburg's last-ditch effort carried only from 'the local 35 to the 47. After a one-yard running play at that point, Jones faked out two Shelby defenders at their 25 to take a pass from Lanning but dropped the ball. On the next play Lanning . was smeared for a five-yard loss and a fourth-down aerial to Jones was completed but was short of the important first down by a long yard. Only 50 seconds remained when the Bears took over on then: own 44 and two line plunges ran the clock out. The loss drops the Pirates' South Central Conference mark to 0-3 and the overall record ,to 0-4. The next game is another loop tilt at Connersville next Friday. : Greensburg players: Quarterback, George Lanning; halfbacks, Danny Jones, Larry Mc- Camment, Bob Barker, Alan Goddard, Mike See, Bud McNutt, Phil Shutters; fullback, BUI Tucker; ends, Boy Lay, Bruce Baldwin, Daryl Smith, Mike Dodds; tackles, Jim Klene, Tom Ogden, Ed Parker, Steve Boyd; guards, Rick Phillips, Pat McCarty, Steve Chitwood, Dave Riedeman, Rodney King; centers, Frank Hamilton, Ted Thornburg.

Missed Three LAFAYETTE, Ind. (UPI) —Maybe he should have stuck to basketball. Swedish exchange student Tom Aberg was looking for the basketball coach when he ran across Rensselaer High School football coach Bill Siderewicz who invited him to kick a couple. Impressed, Siderewicz made Aberg the kicker of the squad. Last night Rensselaer downed East Tipp, 18-0, in the Swede's debut but Abert, who had never before played football, missed all three of his extra-point attempts.

USE OUR DRIVE- UP WINDOW Knych Wins Third Gotf Title in Row MUNOIE, Ind., (UPI) — Ed Knych of Ft. Harrison had his name in the Indiana PGA record book today but it took a tough battle with five-time winner Bill Heinlein of Carmel to collect his third straight title. Knych downed Heinlein, 2-up, in the 36-hole final at the Green Hills -Country Club here Friday to become the first man ever to win the championship three successive years. Several others, including Heinlein, had won two in a row. Knych built a 4-up lead over Heinlein in the morning round, played in a drizzle and in temperatures just under 50 degrees. But Heinlein whittled away at the lead in the afternoon and cut the margin to 2-up after 27 holes and then won the 28th to make it 1-up. Knych built it back to 3-up by taking the 30th and 32nd holes but Henlien came right back to win the 33r dand 35th. Knych finally won it with a birdie four on the 36th hole. The victory was worth $600 to Knych while Heinlein collected $400 for his runner-up finish. Tucker, Chitwood "Linemen of Week" Co-winners of the Lineman of the Week award were selected by the Greensburg High School football coaching staff following Friday's 20-13 loss at Shelbyville. They are Bill Tucker, 175- pound junior who was chosen for his outstanding play as a linebacker on defense, and Steve Chitwood, 185-pound junior who was named for the second straight week. Coach Bill Bless called Tucker's defensive effort his best of the season and a major factor in the improved overall local defense that stopped Shelby's wide game cold. A fullback on offense, Tucker scored Greensburg's second touchdown on a 12-yard end run in the third quarter. Chitwood, a tackle on offense who was switched to guard on defense this week, was cited primarily for his offensive play, opening holes in the line for Pirate ball carriers hi the stepped- up ground attack. Tucker and Chitwood will share the belt provided by Greensburg Jaycees signifying the Lineman of the Week until Friday's game at Connersville. "Miss Madison" In Lake Tahoe Regatta STATELINE, Nev.

Daily News, Saturday, Sept. 25,196J. Here's Giants' Book On Minnesota Hitters By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — The first thing they do before all those World Series "summit" meetings is make sure they shut the clubhouse door. These skull sessions are something of a ritual prior to every World Series and the ballplayers laughingly refer to each of them as "the daily win." That's because no ball club ever loses during these meetings. All they ever do is win. Only the other side loses. No outsiders are permitted. That's why they shut the door. Standing there on the outside you occasionally get the feeling they are discussing some deep, dark state secret inside, but all they ever do is go over the strong points and weak points of the rival hitters. That's traditional. And since it's also traditional that no one really has any lock on the information, here, straight from the feedbox, is pretty much the way the San Francisco Giants will kick it around when they close the door and catalogue Minnesota's hitters two weeks from now: Good Hitter Tony Oliva—As good a hitter as there is in baseball. That's right, in all baseball. . . hits to left, right, center and even backwards. .. bust him in on the hands and take your chances. . . extremely difficult to fool... only weakness: speaking English. Zoilo Versalles—Twins' best all-around player. .. shows best power on high pitch. That's the one he'll occasionally hit out of the park. . . keep him off the bases. He's always a problem on them. Jimmie Hall—Good hitter but somewhat weak against left- handed pitching. . . move the ball around on him, keep it away and don't give him anything he can pull. Harmon Killabrew— Eats up fastball pitchers. Has enough power for three men . . . sliders give him the most trouble. Bob .Allison—Weak on breaking 'balls ... hits the fastball and change-up without too much trouble, though ... throw him curves and sliders and keep them all down. Earl Battey—Hang a curve or get behind him and he'll hurt you . .. hits the pitchers' mistakes . .. much more effective against off-speed pitches than he is against the good hummer. ... No Bob Hayes getting down the line. •Richie Rollins — Keep jamming him . . . doesn't handle the real good fastball in on his hands .. . likes the ball over the plate. Don Mincher—One of the better hitters on the club and a tough man to pitch to ... hits everything, fastball, curve and change-up . . . weaker on defense than he is on offense. Sandy Valdespino—Try to get him off-stride 'by moving the ball around on .him . . . doesn't take too many pitches. Will swing at all strikes . . . runs well and always hustles. Frank Quilici— Still troubled •by hard-throwers ... not much power . . . hits curveballs better than fastballs at times. Joe Nossek—Fair power with average speed ... platooned a lot so he's far stronger against lefthanders than he is against righthanders. Jerry Zimmerman—Good receiver ibut weak offensively and has little power ... if you keep the ball in and tight on him, he'll rarely hurt you. Sports Briefs Jerry Kindall — Fine, team player but one of the weakdst hitters on the club ... breaking balls bother him and he can be overpowered by fast- balls, so take your pick. That's the whole kit and ka- boodle except for 23-year-old first-year man John Sevcik, who has warmed Minnesota's bench all year but still'is eligible for the World Series. If he ever gets in it, the Giants most likely will be at a stage where they won't have to worry much what to throw him, anyway. Dry Clean Your Carpet and Save Clean 300 sq. ft.
