FOCHT Telegraph Sports Editor The Wood River Oilers had n trouble adding victory No. 11 to their string Saturday night a Wood River High gym as they top ped Roodhouse by a score of 50-15 The starting five for Wood Riv er, Lowell Petitt, Norris Dorsey Bob Mutz, Don Capron, and Mel vin Sheets, played the first quar ter of the game and took a 10-' lead. The second sfrinucrs played the second period and boosted th' margin to 23-8. At the half, th- first five dressed in street clothe and the second and third teams «1 ternated for the second half. The score at the end of the third quarter was 31-14. Th* Roodhouse five, an Illinois Valley Conference aggregation was consistently unable to cope i'lth the Oiler defense, regardless of which Oilers were in the game, The visitors' offense could not click to get off good shots and sel dom controlled the backboards. Consequently, after the final buzzer sounded, Roodhouse had racked up only five field goals and five free phots for its 35 point total. Only four Roodhouse boys broke into the scoring columns with Ransom leading the point getting as he accounted for 40 percent of his team's points, Betting two field goals and two free throws. Crabtree hnd four points on two f'eld and Copier added four on a field goal and two free throws. The final Roodhouse point went to Bell on a free shot. As far as scoring was concerned, the Oiler varsity took a seat far behind the reserves. In the one quarter the first five was in the game, Lowell Pctltt did most of the scoring, racking up three baskets for six points. Bob Mutz hit a field goal for two points, and Don Capron hit twice from the free throw line for the final two markers scored In the first per lod. Among the .reserves, Jim Scoggins led the point making with 10 markers on four baskets and two free shots. Dick Fisher hit for eJKjit points on four buckets, and DnrreJl Reid and BUI Grable had six points on three buckets each. Reid also played a great rebounding t;ame and fed off well from 'the pivot. In all, 11 Oilers broke into the scoring columns as Coach Chick Summers spent the last half taking a player out of the game every time he committed a foul. The play was rather slow throughout the game, however, as Roodhouse frowned on fast breaking and quieted the tempo considerably. The slow play made fouls infrequent and when the contest ended, the Oilers had committed only 17 ' p. m. Wednesday the lower bracket personals (with 15 players In the game) while the Roodhouse crew committed only 11, < Wood Hlvcr <J«I Kondhoutt (It) PUyec Is (t V>t Flaw t( (I pi Mutz rihhrr ShceU Kins PC lilt Held Caproa Rook Doctor GrabI* 8cog(lna Teat Perrln Scjnhoven Smith I 0 1 Ransom 4 0 IR.CrabtrM 0 0 OScever 1 0 2Beai 3 0 IBell 3 0 2K.Crabtrtt 0 3 OCoplor t » OSillon 0 0 1 3 0 1 4 3 3 1 II 1 0 n 1 002 0 0 1 joo DOS 0 0 1 0 1 0 003 1 I 1 0 0 1 SPRINGFIELD, III., Jan. 9. W>— Mt. Vernon ruled a topheavy favorite today In the Associated Press third weekly poll of sports writers to guage downstate prospects for the Illinois high school basketball title. Thc Rams won the No. 1 tag In each of the first two polls, also by a wide margin. West Aurora clung to the No. 2 spot It seized a week ago, and Flora retained third. Darvllle took over fourth place from Kankakee, which dropped to twelfth. Mt. Vernon, the defending state champion, roared along unchecked over the weekend. The Rams captured a 20-point decision from West Frankfort and then flattened Salem, 63-29, to run their unbeaten string through 13 games. The Blackhawks from West Aurora also registered a double triumph, whipping East Rockford 34-29 and Barrlngton, 50-43. Tripped in their season opener, the Aurorans now have amassed ten straight victories. Once beaten Flora won Its thirteenth in a row from Olney to lighten its grip on the No. 3 berth. Danville's advance from eighth o fourth position was traceable to ts 6fi-57 verdict over Champaign, .•ombined with Kankakee's prior showing In n 57-3fi setback by Ar- Danville's speedy Streaks now wn nine victories compared with e reverse. Three teams which failed to win op 15 listing a week acjji crashed nto the select circle—Wood River, Crystal Lake and .Rock Island. Wood River started out the season like a house afire, hut lost, prestige after a defeat in the East St, Lquls Holiday Tournament. A 53-42 weekend conquest of Collins- vllle, Wood River's tenth In 11 outings, boosted the Oilers' stork again and landed them :he No. 13 spot, One perch behind was crystnl Lake, unstopped In 14 contests. The Lakers' latest victim was Lib- ertyvllle, which fell by a 58-20 count on Friday. Rock Island grabbed the tallend position In the rating after weekend triumphs over Galesburg and Sterling. The twin triumph gave the Rocks a 10-3 wort and lost record for the campagln. The trio of newcomers displaced Mollne, a surprise loser to weak Kawanec; Athens, battered 60-'10 by Springfield Cathedral after 12 consecutive wins; and Pekin's Chinks. An eight point triumph Saturday over Peoria' Central np- larcntly failed to make up for Pekin's defeat by Streator ihe night before. Decatur and Hillsboro, ranked 'Ifth and sixth respectively, -con- teams meet when St. John's of Carrollton goes up against Bunker Hill in the 7 p. m. encounter, followed by the clash between Medora and Brussels at 8:30 p. m. Thursday, the upper bracket winners will come together at 7 p. m. and the lower bracket victors clash at 8:30 p. m. And Friday, the semi-final losers will meet for the consolation prize at 7 p, m. while the semi-final winners clash Street Baptist topped Twelfth Street Presbyterian, 21-7; Calvary Baptist edged First Baptist, 20-15 in the closest game of the night, and College Avenue Presbyterian showed off Its defensive ability by shutting out Cherry Street Baptist, 15-0.

Three College Teams in Top 10 Still Unbeaten Bob Jones Lifts Pioneers Over ConcordiaFive Justice Takes Job In Health Service By MILO FARNET1 NEW YORK, Jan. 9, UPl— Only three of the count^/i top 10 college basketball teams—Indiana, Holy Cross and Duquesne—still displayed all-winning records today. ' The season Is about one-third finished and only three other major fives are unbeaten: Cincinnati (six victories), Auburn (eight) and Army (three). Indiana (10 victories) ranked fifth in last week's first Associated Press poll, Holy Cross (11) sixth and Duquesne (9) eighth. The remaining seven of the top 10 all hava dropped one to three games. St. John's, ranked No. 1,. lost for the first time last week to CCNY. A listing of the best teams, section-by-«ectton, includes: EAST-^Loni Island U. (11-1), Holy Cross (11-0), Duquesne (9-0), St. John's (13-U and La Salle (7-2). SOUTH—Kentucky (8-1), North Carolina State (9-2J. Western Kentucky (7-3) and Tulane (10-2). MIDWEST — Indiana (10-0), Bradley (11-2), Ohio State (6-2) and Kansas State (8-3). Several others—Minnesota, Cincinnati, Wisconsin, Oklahoma and Michigan- could displace the top four here. SOUTHWEST — Arizona (9-1) and take your pick of a batch of mediocre Southwest Conference fives. ROCKY MOUNTAIN—Colorado (8-3) Utah .(10-6) and Wyoming (12-4). FAR WEST — UCLA (10-3), Southern California (9-2) and Washington (12-1). Saturday night's games ran according to form with these five exceptions: Duke upset North Carolina State, 58-55. Canlslus scored eight points In the final 90 seconds, to down St. Louis, 55-50.. La Salle Bob Jones, the Jumpln' jack of the Shurtleff College basketball squad, provided the spark as the Pioneers successfully Invaded St Louis and conquered Concordia Seminary College with a fine second half comeback, 63-55, Saturday night. Apparently the Christmas vacation didn't dull the basketball eyes of the locals. They hit for 24 field goals during the well played contest. Concordia wasn't hampered too much by the layoff, cither. The Concordlans had 21 buckets to their credit. The victory was the sixth of the season for the Pioneers. On the loss side they have three setbacks tacked on their schedule so far. The St. Loulsans couldn't cope with Jones and Co. as the tide changed In favor of Shurtleff in the final half. Fouling and free throws beat Concordia in the last frame. The Pioneers pulled the game out of the embers as they dropped in 12 last half foul tosse? in 19 attempts. Both sides had the same number of baskets In the second half, but as said before, the hosts couldn't stem the onrushing Maroon and Gold wave that just kept coming. Coin' Steady It was Jones' • steady work at the backboards and his free throw shooting that kept the .visitors from Alton 1 In the game. In the opening canto, Bob connected for five fielders, but missed on his only two tries from the charity stripe; In the next half, the tune changed. Jones was limited to only two field goals by the cautious Tea<*' ers, but In doing so, they had to foul him and that was what he wrote for the Missourians. Jones had eight more chances at the free throw line and made good on his flips five times. So. In all, he had seven buckets and five from shot? for 19 points. Some terrific shooting by the Pioneers kept the invaders close to the St. Loulsans In the opening half. They had 14 field goals, whereas the seminary boys had 12. Like Shurtleff in the final stanza, foul throws kept the MisJouri- ans lii the game In the Initial period. They made seven successful tosses and missed only four times. All In all free throw shooting was good on both sides. The Pioneers had 15 out of 25 and the Con- rordla Seminary lads had 13 out 21. Cut His Legs Off The Altonians had a lot of trouble with Concordla's strlngbean center, Goerss. - He had a total of six buckets and three free flips for 15 points to grab second place scoring honors for the contest. Ralph Miller was second high for Shurtleff with 16 points. Louts Hauser, who is rapidly im- nroving with each game came In for third honors with four baskets and a lone free shot' for nine points. George Gaunder ihd John Logan were tied for next honors, each grabbing eight nolnts. Gaunder's came on three fielders and a couple free flips, while Logan collected his total on a pair of baskets and twice that many charity tosses. The Pioneers will have a chance to improve their record Wednqs- day night when they are host to Quincy College. The game will be played at East Jr. High School gym and game time, as usual, Is 8 p. m.
