BURNEY PANTHERS — Front row, Charles Elliott, Alan Menefee, Danny McComas, Dannie Joerger, Mike Gross and John Elliott; back row, Steve Nugent, Ed Mulling, Coach Dick Naylor, Assistant Coach Buddy Busby, Steve Partner and Bill Barnes. It May Be Lean Year For Burney Panthers (This is the first in a series of pictures and articles on Decatur County high school basketball teams, presenting information on I the . personnel and outlook along with the schedule for the 1965-66 season.) By DON AUSTIN After having had three straight winning seasons, it appears the Burney Panthers may be in for a rather lean year in 1965-66. They will have no size and very little experience, which definitely makes it a tough row for Coach Dick Naylor to hoe in his third year at the Panther helm. With four of the five starters gone from last year's club, which posted an ll-won-10 lost record, there is a glaring lack of seasoned material to work with. Panther regulars who graduated last spring included big Ed Dance, the leading rebounder, floor general Winn Ison and shot- makers Burtis Hicks and Bernard .Vernon. Lone starter returning is Charles Elliott, 5-10 junior and a topnotch all-round performer. Other lettermen in the fold include Mike Gross, who saw some duty at guard last season, John Elliott, Danny McComas and Steve Nugent. All of the lettermen except Charles Elliott are seniors. There is one other senior on the roster BUI Barnes, who is described as a good jumper and rebounder. Others on the varsity are juniors Steve Fortner, Alan Menefee and Ed Mullins and sophomore Dannie Joerger, who is an excellent prospect despite his small 5-7 stature. Injured Hand Nugent, who is a fair enough rebounder for a six-footer, will probably be the starting center, although he has been hampered somewhat by an injured hand, suffered in practice. Charles Elliott will be at one forward and either his brother, John, or Barnes or Fortner at the other. Gross will likely get the starting nod at one back- court position with Joerger or Mullins probably teaming up with him. McComas will also see duty at guard. The Panthers are again prac- Gary Player Leads Australian Open ADELAIDE. Australia (UPI) — South Africa's Gary Player fired a world record 28 on the front nine today and went on to post his lowest score in an international tournament, an 11 under par 62 to take a four stroke lead after the first round of the Australian Open championship.

ANDERSON UPI Sports Writer SAN JOSE, Calif. .(UPI)-Auing Billy Casper, aiming for a $100,000 year In golf, set out today to defend his title in the 72- tiole $46,000 Almaden Open tournament. Sniffing oxygen between practice rounds because of a smog- caused allergy which made breathing difficult, Casper admitted he is not as sharp as he was last week when he captured the $20,000 first prize in the Sahara Invitational at Las Vegas. "I feel discombooberated," he said after shooting a three- over-par 75 in a pro-amateur warmup Wednesday: "My balance is off, my timing is off and I just plain feel lousy." But a sick Casper is like a sore-armed Sandy Koufax. Casper already has won $96,771.90 'this year on the PGA tour and with two tournaments yet .to play he hopes to join Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tony Lema in the front ranks of golf's leading money winners. '•Gasper was far back in the pack Wednesday when the pro scores were posted in the pro- amateur event.. The leaders were little Jack McGowan of Largo, Fla., and Jerry Steelsmith of Santa Barbara, Calif., both shol six-under-par 66s on the 7,035-yard Almaden Country Club layout. Steelsmith was a runnerup here last year with Pete Brown of Los Angeles and Casper. Casper finally won in a playoff. Long-hitting . Raymond Floyd of St. Andrews, 111., and Miller Barber of San Antonio, Tex., finished next in the pro-amateur tuheup with 67s while Bruce Brampton of Australia, a real threat to Casper's title, posted a 68 as did Rex Baxter of Houston, Tex., and Brown. While neither Palmer, Nicklaus nor Player entered the Almaden, the field does include Ken Venturi, the former National Open king, making comeback after a year-long layoff because of hand injuries. Venturi scored a wto-over-par 74 Wednesday but was happy with his game. - "It's coming back." he-said', "I'm just on the verge of playing good." The feature of the pro- amateur Wednesday was a net zero recorded by 18-handicapper Sekul Spaich of San Jose. He holed a seven iron on the 140-yard 15th hole and with his stroke recorded a nothing. CHICAGO (UPI) —.' Navy's twiceibeaten football team can expec.t no mercy Saturday .from tre Dame's fourth - ranked squad because the Middies showed ground gaining power n last week's loss to Georgia Tech. Irish Coach Ara Parseghian broke precedent Monday by working his regulars harrf, ihough not in a scrimmage, and pointed out they could expect Dne of their toughest games Erom the Middies because they gained "over 400 yards" against Tech. The Irish expected a more balanced attack from Navy' than from last week's rival, Southern California, who stayed on the ground en route to a 287 defeat. Navy, on the other hand, passed^ for 313 yards against Tech. 'Whether the Middies'will try as many passes against the Notre Dame secondary, which includes Tony Carey, Tom Longo and Nick Rassas, was questionable. Rassas has intercepted five passes this year, running one back for the key touchdown against Northwestern, and Carey two. Parseghian also was concerned because Navy's statistical leaders were not listed as probable starters.

The leading passer, John Cartwright, wil understudy Bruce Bickel at quarterback. Notre Dame's prospects for its fifth win in six games were high since the squad probably is in its best physical condition of the season, with no one reported seriously injured after the Trojan clash.. Parseghian was expected to start senior Bill Zloch at quarterback and place emphasis on the running of Larry Conjar, Nick Eddy, Bill WolsM and Zloch, instead of on passing. The Irish passing has been uncertain all season and Zloch has tried only 34 tosses. He has rushed himself 35 times, averaging 4.6 yards per carry. Conjar, who gained 116 yards against Southern California, is the leading rusher with 300 yards. WolsM's 5 yard per carry average is best on the squad. •Notre Dame's emphasis on rushing was best displayed by team statistics, showing "293 running plays, for 1,208 yards, and only 49 passes, for 363 yards. The passes have accounted for only two of the Irish' 20 touchdowns. Greensburg (Ind.) Daily News, Thursday, Oct. 28,1965 PACE* Bowling News West Bowl Lanes Wednesday Night League Pts.
