TIME FOR A CHANGE Area Grid Champs Flounder Chenoa Only Team Likely To Retain Title By ROGER CUSHMAN Pantagraph Sports Writer It's been a bad season for last year's area high school conference champions. Chenoa, riding the crest of a 19 game winning streak, appears to be the only school likely to repeat last year's title performance in the Midstate Conference. New kings have already been crowned in the Corn Belt and Illini Valley conferences, and the four other area leagues figure to follow suit. St. Joseph has replaced Fisher as the standard bearer in the last year of the six-man football Illini Valley. Trinity, which like Chenoa had won 19 straight games and two Corn Belt flags, succumbed to Normal Community last week to give the Ironmen this year's title. Gibson Reign Ends New champions are assured in the Vermilion Valley and Wauseca conferences, although both races could end in ties. Onarga Community has clinched a tie for the V. V. title, and has only to defeat Piper City this week for a clear cut title. A loss, how ever, could open the door for defending champion Chatsworth, which would have to win its remaining three games for a tie. Forrest could also gain a tie if , Onarga stumbles. The two year reign of Gibson City has come to an end in the Wauseca Conferece. The Grey hounds are buried in fourth place with two losses and have no chance at catching the two front runners, Rantoul and Paxton. The race may end the way the ' Rantoul-Paxton game ended early in the season tied. The pressure is on Paxton in its game with Hoopeston this week, because Rantoul has only last place Onarga Military School in the way of an unblemished conference slate. Two Have Hopes Farmington of the Illio and Mt. Zion of the Soya still have chances of repeating last year's titles, but their hopes are slim with undefeated teams ahead of them in the standings. Chillicothe and Maroa can clinch shares of those titles this week by winning. Both will face tough opponents. Chillicothe has a 5-0 mark in the eight-team Illio, and Maroa is 1 " in the seven-team Soya. Maroa faces Lovington, tied with ' Mt. Zion for second place in the Soya, and Chillicothe will meet Tremont. Chenoa appears to be in no danger of losing its Midstate title. It hasn't lost a conference game since 1951 and should hold that record for another year, at least. The Redbirds include two of the weaker conference teams in their three remaining league games. Boston Celtics Edge College All Star Squad BOSTON (JV-Easy Ed MaCau- ley dunked in a set-up with nine seconds remaining to cap a 43 point fourth quarter surge as the Boston Celtics edged the College All Stars 107-106 Monday night in an exhibition baksetball game at Boston Garden. The Celtics, trailing as much as 16 points midway through the fourth quarter, went ahead for the first time since before the half, 105-104, on a pair of free throws by Bob Cousy, who got 17 of his 25 points in the final penod , . Rib Injury Sidelines Washington Player ' WASHINGTON, D. C. (U.P.) Chunky (Slug) Witucki, Washing- ton Redskins' offensive guard, suffered a cracked rib in the New York Giants game Sunday and will be out of action for at least two weeks. The Redskins also feared that halfback Harry Gilmer may be sidelined indefinitely with an ankle injury. X-rays revealed no break but Gilmer was limping badly continues to grow in stature. And as it does, so the conviction con tinues to grow that a remarkable group of young men are operating in red lersies at the Teachers College this fall. Latest accomplishment, of course, is a 19-6 victory over a De Kalb team that had just licked Southern and Beloit and which was always dangerous, although never seriously in the running after Nor mal had scored its first touchdown and converted successfully. Surprising Redbirds Point To Trip to Mt. Pleasant Normal's coming of age process something out of a football club and the fact that Central will be smarting lrom their unexpected loss to Western State. Struck is very likely to feel the full impact of the latter. Teams as fast as Central, don't have two bad days in a row. However, Normal has always been able to score on the Chips and if their defense is as tight as it was Saturday, the Jelley clan may not run as wild as they have on some occasions. THE REDBIRDS refused to let De Kalb's early counter worry them, but immediately went to work and went to town, it could be added. Coach Edwin G. Struck achieved this victory without the services of his captain, Roger Francour of Cnvitz, Wis., one of the finest competitors in the school's history and Boone Hammond, his big sophomore center from Quincy. Francour may be ready for the game Saturday at Mt. Pleasant, and likewise Hammond. That will give him two more able hands. THIS is the BIG ONE for the Birds although as matters now stack up, it is very likely that 5-1 will at least get any club with that rating, a share at least of the conference banner. The tough part of this week's assignment is the long trip to Mt Pleasant, which usually takes THERE is a lot of emphasis on defense everywhere today and that will be the picture at McCormick field all week as the Birds drill for their Saturday afternoon en gagement. It "used to be that a football team would encounter only two de fense but today a coach must re- pare for a dozen. The two old de fenses, seven-box and seven-dia mond are now only two t)f many that every football team must face almost every Saturday and must be ready to adjust their offense for each week end. This means that more and more coaches are now devoting two-thirds of their time to combating all the tricky offensive moves. The Normal squad didn't get its customary day of rest Monday, Struck workiner for an hour undpr the floodlights a rather unusual j bm-tPm1 .C.0.?f procedure at Normal but a wise one. Beal Maintains Corn Belt Loop Scoring Lead Bill Beal of Normal Community continues to set the pace in the Corn Belt Conference scoring race with 26 points. However, NCHS has finished its conference schedule and Beal could be overtaken by Ed Powell of U, High, Bill Bartosik of Trinity. Bob Polston of Clinton, or Chuck Lind- quist of Pontiac. All four backs have one more league game to play and all are within striking distance of Beal. Wilbur Hany, Gridley halfback. is still out in front in the Midstate individual race but had his margin cut last week by runner-up Lcm Clark of Chenoa. Clark scored three times against El Paso while Hany was held to one TD at Minonk-Dana. Hany has a lead of 20 points but Clark has two conference games left in which to overtake the Gridley ace while Hany has but one. Virgil Van Derryt, Piper City end, has a five point bulce over Dave McKinley of Chatsworth for the Vermilion Valley scoring honors. John Lannon of Saunemin is in a three-way tie with two Onarga players for third place. Bob Wise of Rantoul seems to have cinched scoring honors in the Wauseca Conference while Henry LeGault of Chillicothe is far out in front in the Illio.

"I never get to bed be fore midnight because of my work and that's where the bowling comes in. I have to rush around on Mondays and Fridays to make it to the alleys but I'd go nuts from my work if I didn't bowl," explained Kincaid. Just a Normal Bowler "I've never done too well in the tournaments. Buck lever I guess. And I don't try anything different from the average bowler when I'm on the line. I use a four step approach something between a walk and a waddle. I'd probably quit if I could see myself," joked the 47 year old Kincaid. ihree splits in the lb game spoiled Kincaid's bid for the 600 series. He also missed the fourth frame in both 200 games. Three consecutive strikes is the longest string posted by Kincaid in the three games. Jim Sebeny, who bowls for the Silver Dollar in the Evergreen League at Savidge Bros, on Friday evening, was another kegler who was way above his -average last week. Sebeny sports a 158 average but had games of 184, 213, and 171 in compiling a 568 series. Phil Swadley, McDonald Manu facturing Co. bowler in the Ever green League, spoiled his chance for a 600 series with a third game of Ids last Friday. Swadley started with 200 and 199. The Pabst bowling team from Saybrook continues to lead the Sportsmen League standings. Fabst has now won 18 of 21 games. Pabst topped Wichman Produce of .Anchor by one pin, 776-775, last week.
