Indiana University also lists soccer as an inter-collegiate varsity sport. Currently, six Hoosier schools compete in the Midwestern Collegiate Soccer Conference. A high school league has been formed in Northern Indiana. This leads to the indication that soccer may be renewed as a high school sport. At least, interest is indicated. Long before soccer was played to any extent as a high school sport, Greensburg had a soccer team. The British equivalent to American football was introduced in Greensburg in 1911 by J. Winchell Bare, a high school instructor in Latin. An Englishman by birth, who invariably wore a derby hat, Bare was responsible for stimulating interest in soccer here. Four separate teams were organized for play in an intermural league. A varsity team played games at the old fairgrounds near the Indiana Odd Fellows Home with some other schools, including Shortridge High School of Indianapolis. With the advent of basketball and the departure of Bare, soccer was abandoned as a high school sport here. Several members of the 1911 soccer team still reside in Greensburg. They include: Frank Marlin, Mose Levenstein, Harold Doles, Dr. William A. Meyer and possibly others. Soccer is a rough, fast-moving game. While not quite as hazardous as football, it requires that participants be in top physical condition. It is an economical sport, as a soccer player can be equipped for less than $20. And, in 1911, the Greensburg participants played the game at a far jess outlay. Possibly not as thrilling as football, soccer attracts interest on the part of spectators. The Earlham coach, Charles Matney, would like to see added interest in soccer in Indiana. He hopes to develop the Earlham program so that the Quakers can make a respectable showing in international competition. It could happen that there will be a renewed interest in soccer in the years ahead and that a sport which was pioneered in Indiana at Greensburg over a half century ago will again prove popular.

WASHINGTON (UPI)—American combat deaths in Viet Nam, keeping pace with the increased U S involvement in the fighting, are now above the 1,000 mark. The disclosure came Thursday almost at the same time Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara announced at the Texas White House that American military strength in Viet Nam would be bolstered still further beyond its present level of 160,000 men. It also came almost precisely at the time that McNamara had once predicted could be the end of "the major part of the United States military task" in the Southeast Asian country. The new information about the total number of American deaths was included in a speech in Los Angeles Thursday by Lt. Gen. Andrew J. Goodpaster, assistant to Gen. Earle GM Wheeler, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Goodpaster said that American forces now have suffered more than 1,000 fatalities in the Cause of Blackout Unsolved By MICHAEL POSNER ' WASHINGTON (UPl; — Federal power investigators attempting to diagnose the power paralysis which seized the northeast examined various theories today, including one that it was caused by a nervous breakdown" of an electronic brain. The team of experts named by President Johnson to search out the cause of Tuesday's big blackout discounted the possibility that a mechanical breakdown of equipment triggered the chain reaction power failure. Instead of a physical breakdown — such as a broken generator or a fallen transmission line — some sources suggested the entire northeastern power complex may have had a failure on its automated electronic system. The investigators, headed by Federal Power Commission (FPC) Chairman Joseph C. Swidler, continued their inquiry today. They held a long session Thursday, working late into the night. The federal power and legal experts were gathering their information for testing theories through questioning of top officials from 23 private and public power supplies from the Eastern United States and Canada. The investigation was shrouded in secrecy, Swidler supplied only the barest details of the close door sessions. He was expected to file a preliminary report to Johnson on the .blackout, possibly this weekend. "There's no easy answer to this," Swidler said. "We're jus.t plowing ahead." Utility industry sources said the investigators were trying to nail down why power suddenly surged toward Canada seconds before the massive breakdown started at 5:16 p.m. EST Tuesday. X-Rays (Continued from Page One) Mrs. Harold French, Mrs. Ivan Bailey and Mrs. Karl Walker; Thursday, Mrs. Carl Hellmich, Miss Gladys Aldridge, Mrs. Ed Dodds, Mrs. James Miller, Mrs. Brad DeArmond and Mrs. Dorothy Shannon; and Friday, Mrs. William Hunter and Mrs. Don Wickens. Persons with any of the following tuberculosis danger signals are particularly urged to have an x-ray: A cough that persists, coughing or spitting blood, unusual loss of weight, afternoon rise in temperature, prolonged hoarseness, recurring chest pains, unusual tiredness or persistent indigestion. It was pointed out chest x-rays also uncover conditions causing or leading to other respiratory diseases besides tuberculosis. The program is sponsored, by the Decatur County Tuberculosis Association, in cooperation with the State Board of Health, and is financed through the annal sale of Christmas seals. Quick Stop DETROIT (UPI) — A Detroit area inventor has figured out a way to save Detroit supermarkets the $500,000 they lose each year in stolen shopping carts. A magnet is attached to each cart and others are placed strategically around the market. When the shop,per steps too far, the cart stops dead and can't' be moved. Ill course of the war against the Communists, but gave no exact figures. It will probably be several days before it will be known exactly when the 1,000 mark was reached. Announcement of the names of men killed in action usually is delayed for several days to allow necessary reports to be made and next of kin to be notified. As of Thursday, the latest official figures available were for Nov. 8, showing 987 servicemen had been killed in Viet Nam since Jan. 1, 1961. But it was said at the Pentagon that casualties since then would lift the total well above 1,000. Drop Item On Nuclear Stockpiling VATICAN CITY (UPI) — A phrase implicitly condoning nuclear stockpiling "as long as international institutions give no adequate guarantee of peace" has been dropped from a key document under study by the Ecumenical Council, it was announced today. A revised version of the decree on the church in the modern world was distributed to Ecumenical councilmen in St. Peter's Basilica. The old version stated that "as long as international institutions give no adequate institutions give no adequate guarantee of peace, the possession of these nuclear armaments, exclusively as a deterrent for any enemy equipped with the same weapons, cannot be said to be in itself illegitimate." The official Latin version of the new draft ignores the problem. Instead, it urges close attention to the studies of interna tional disarmament commissions and meetings considering the problem. Council sources said some American prelates were upset by the dropping of the stockpfl; ing fprmula which Auxiliary Bishop of Washington Philip Hannan urged the council to adopt in 1964. North Europeans and some English prelates had argued for a more pacifist approach. Religious Diet Ends In Death CLIFTON, N. J/ (UPI)—Designed to produce "a beautiful mind in a beautiful body," the severe religious diet produced death instead for a 24-year-old woman artist. A grieving father and a county prosecutor today wanted to know why. Mrs. Beth Anne Simon died Tuesday of "acute malnutrition," nine months after embarking on a thrice-daily diet of brown rice, a cereal called kasha, and tea. She was buried Thursday. The dead woman's father, attorney Samuel Wiener of Paterson, N. J., said she and her husband, Charles, 24, began the diet last February in connection with the practice of Zen Buddhism. He said her husband was told the religion and the diet would cure his migraine headaches. But Simon, whose weight has plummeted from 135 to 105 pounds, still has the headaches, Wiener said. Passaic County Prosecutor John Thevos ordered a thorough investigation. Sources said a grand jury inquiry might follow. Medical officials said the 5- foot-4 Mrs. Simon weighed about 70 pounds when she died—50 pounds less than she weighed when she began the diet. Wiener said his daughter and her husband practiced Buddhism "to attain oneness wih the universe and eliminate all diseases." Neither of the two was regularly employed. Wiener said his daughter was an artist and her husband a writer. Graveside Services For Infant Daughter NEW CASTLE, Ind.—Jennifer Lynn Osting, 17-day-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Osting of Lewisville, died Thursday in Robert Long Hospital. Survivors with the parents are two sisters, Cynthia Ann and Susan Marie, at home; grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. James Correir of New Castle and Mr. and Mrs. Howard Osting of Lewisville; two great-grandfathers, Jessie Ailes of Clarksburg and Frank Osting of Greensburg; one uncle-and:one aunt. Graveside rites were held here at 10:30 a. m. Friday. The Rev. R. E. Pavy of New Castle and the Rev. Vernon Taylor of Lewisville conducted the rites. Fistfight Explodes In Japanese Parliament TOKYO (UPI) — A wild fistfight erupted in the lower house of 'the Japanese Parliament early today when Conservative deputies broke a Socialist filibuster and rammed through a controversial treaty establishing normal relations with South Korea. l House speaker Naka Funada, 70, center of the. stormy session, collapsed after it was over and was hospitalized with high blood pressure and a heart ailment.

The jury received the case at 11:30 a. m. and returned its verdict at about 3:30 p. m. The case was that of Hubert Gene Brooks vs. Elmer H. Behrman and the plaintiff had sought $25,000 in judgment for the loss of an eye in a farm accident.

At one minute after 'midnight Funada mounted the speaker's rostrum, gavelled the meeting to order and announced an immediate vote on the treaty. Conservative deputies leaped to their feet and Funada declared the treaty approved. Pandemonium broke loose. Conservatives formed a human 'barricade around Funada as deputies from both sides of the aisle converged on the speaker's chair.
