\ Devastating Aerial Attack— Pirates End Grid Season With 26 to 7 Victory Over Batesville By DON AUSTIN Unleashinga devastating aerial attack, the Greensburg High School football team rolled up a 20-0 half time lead over an •outclassed Batesville eleven here Tuesday night and coasted to a 26-7 victory to end the 1965 season on a pleasant note. Senior quarterback George Lanning brought his high school grid career to a close with an impressive passing exhibition completing 12 of 13 tosses in the first half good for 170 yards and all three touchdowns. Although he didn't have as much success in the second half, hitting on only three of 10 heaves while having three intercepted, he also set up the last TD with an 18-yard pass play in the fourth quarter and then scored the six-pointer on a quarterback sneak. Although he had plenty of time usually and the losers' coverage of receivers was not good, Lanning displayed excellent form in leading Greensburg to victory in the last game of the year, in sharp contrast to last Friday night when he had "nothing but trouble" in the mud and rain at Aurora. For the game the 6-4, 185- pound signal caller completed 15 of 23 passes for 218 yards. Reserve quarterback Bob Barker also completed one aerial for eight yards. The 226 yards via the airways was just too much for the scrappy but undersized Bull Dog aggregation. In beating Batesville, the Eastern Indiana Conference champion, the Pirates of first-year Coach Bill Bless brought then- season record to 3-6. The visitors finished with five triumphs, three setbacks and one tie. An estimated 1,500 fans turned out in the crisp autumn weather for the finale and were treated to an entertaining halftime show by the combined high school and junior high bands, numbering 220 participants in all. Concluding feature of the "Band Night" show was a fine baton twirling exhibition by senior Sharon Wells, who has won numerous honors- in state and national twirling contests. Pirates Score Early Greensburg kicked off to get the contest underway but the Bull Dogs were forced to punt on their second series of downs and the Buccaneers scored on a drive from their own 40 in eight plays before the game was seven minutes old. After carries of 11 yards by halfback Danny Jones, 17 by fullback Bill Tucker and eight by halfback Larry McCamment Batesville was called for pass interference on end Daryl Smith in the endzone, producing a first down at the 10. On the next play Lanning hit McCamment with a pass at the sideline on the goal for the touchdown. The try for extra point failed when Rodney King was unable to place the ball down for Jones' placekick. The Blessmen marched 85 yards to their second TD, Lan- Antique R nutsea Now, quick - as - a - wink, old painted and varnished surfaces can be converted to the popular "antiqued look" with O'Brien's new, exciting Lite- chrome Finishes.

LANNING SCORES — Although he is obscured in this pileup on the Batesville goal line early in the third quarter, Greensburg quarterback George Lanning is underneath this "mass of humanity" with the football as he scored from one yard out after passing for three Pirate touchdowns in the first half. Other local players shown (in white uniforms) are Larry Mc- Camment (42), Dare Riedeman (61) and Bill Tucker (17).

After an eight yarder to McCamment, he threw to Jones "or 20, end Bob Lay for 18 and halfback Alan Goddard for 25, which moved the ball to the Satesville nine yard marker. A touchdown toss to McCam- ment on the last play of the first quarter was nullified by a 15- yard penalty for an illegal receiver being downfield, but Lanning then connected with Smith, ivho made a good over-the-shoulder grab in the endzone. This ime Jones' kick was good, making the score 13-0. A couple of 17-yard runs by the visitors' Gary Abplanalp and Bill Goldsmith, the latter on a "ake punt, gave the Canines a iirst down at the Greensburg 25 t the rugged local defensive unit halted the drive and the Pirates took over there. Lanning promptly threw a 28- yard strike to Jones and after Tucker's running had moved the Digskin to the Batesville 38 he completed his llth straight aerial, a 13-yarder to Lay, for a first at the 24. Goddard Scores Lanning then missed on his first aerial when G. Abplanalp batted down a pass in the end- zone but the Tree City ace came right back with a screen pass to Goddard that was good for the six points. Jones' boot for the PAT was good again, bringing the count to 20-0. The visitors had marched from their 37 to the Pirate 11 when the first half came to a close. Batesville's Bill Abplanalp intercepted a pass at the Dog 35 shortly after the third period began but the losers gave the ball back there when the hike from center on a punting down was fumbled. After McCamment picked up 10 yards and Tucker six, Lanning completed an 18-yard pass to halfback Mike See on the one, from where the talented quarterback sneaked across the double stripe. The placekick by Jones was blocked. Tucker recovered a fumble for Greensburg near midfield before the third quarter ended and the two clubs started playing ."giveaway" early in the fourth round.

On the next play Tucker tore around right end and went all the way to pay dirt, but his fine run was nullified by a clipping penalty against the Pirates. This proved to be the first of no less than three fourth-quarter local TDs called back by penalties. The others were a brilliant 79-yard gallop by Jones following another pass interception by Tucker at the Pirate 21 and an eight-yard touchdown toss from Lanning to McCamment in the final seconds. A total of 155 yards in penalties was walked off against the locals, 110 of which came in the second half. Batesville lost only 15 yards via the penalty route. Pat McCarty, Buc guard, was evicted midway in the final stanza for unsportsmanlike conduct. Batesville Scores The Bull Dogs averted being shut out when quarterback Zane Koester threw a 15-yard pass to Tom Walsman, wide open at the Greensburg 35, who went all the way untouched with 2:06 left in the match. Fullback Bill Gardner, who had been stopped well by the Pirate defense all evening, plunged successfully for the point, making the final score 26-7.

PAGE 2 Greensburg (Ind.) Daily Newi/WeJnetjay, Oct. 27; 1965 Cards Swap Groat, White to Phillies ST. LOUIS (UPI) — The St. Louis Cardinals traded Bill White, Dick Groat and Bob Uecker to the Philadelphia Phillies today for Art Mahaffey, Alex Johnson and Pat Coralles. It was the second major trade in a week for the Cardinals who dealt Ken Boyer to the New York Mets for Charley Smith and pitcher Al Jackson. The Cards now have traded three members of an infield which started the 1963 all-star team for National League. Groat and Boyer are former most valuable players in the National League. Heffner Feels Reds Can Win By ROBERT WESTON CINCINNATI, Ohio (UPI) — New Cincinnati Reds Manager Don Heffner disagrees with the old Leo Durocher philosophy that "nice.guys finish last." Heffner, 54, will have a chance to prove Durocher wrong under a two-year contract given him by Reds President BiU Dewitt Tuesday. He became manager of the Reds one day after Durocher returned to baseball as new manager of the Chicago Cubs. Heffner succeeds Dick Sisler, who was fired after the Reds' disappointing fourth-place finish in the National League. "There have been a lot of nice guys who have won pennants," Heffner said in his introduction to newsmen. "I'm with Durocher on one point— I'm not out to win any popularity contests, either. I want to win as much as he does and I think I've got the club to do it." The former American League infielder and a coach for the New York Mets the past two seasons did not apply for the Reds' job. "He's one of the few guys in baseball t v ' o didn't, laughed Dewitt, who added he had six men ur.der consideration but declined to identify them. Heffner's salary was not disclosed. Huddle on Trades Heffner huddled with Dewitt today to discuss the new coaching staff and also possible trades to strengthen the club. Mentioned as possibilities for the coaching staff were Johnny Sain, . who helped fashion the Minnesota Twins' staff into a pennant winner, and Mel Harder, who recently was dismissed by the Chicago Cubs. In 1962 and 1963, Heffner was manager of the Reds' San Diego farm club. Several of the. present Reds played under him there, including Deron Johnson, Jim Maloney, Sammy Ellis, Billy McCool, Joe Nuxhall, John Tsitouris, Don Pavletich, Tony Perez and Tommy Helms. "I think the Reds are as strong at all eight positions in the field as any club in either league," Heffner said. "While some of the pitchers did not come up to expectations this season, they could come back and have .big years." Heffner, a slender, grey- haired resident of Arcadia, Calif., got his first managerial job in baseball from Dewitt. He played second base for the old St. Louis Browns when Dewitt owned the club and the two became personal friends. Dewitt hired Heffner as manager of Aberdeen, S.C., in the Northern League in 1947 and the former Brownie infislder responded by guiding the team to the pennant in his rookie season. He has been in baseball as a •manager or coach ever since, although this is his first chance as manager of a major league club.
