PAOB H* ONttttAl N01TV TUESDAY, JANUARY 19, IIIO 77-52 Dutch Miller Sets Pace With 29 Points; R. Poe, Jones Hit for 16 and 14 By DON PLAMKI Telegraph sports Writer Little Toot, Mighty Mouse, or Captain Marvel Jr. hasn't got a thing on Shurtleff College's Dutch Miller. The little guy runs around in fast company when he steps on the floor (or a basketball game. And what he does with the round ball proves there is plenty of room left for the little man in this day and age of cage goliaths. The plnt-stsed basketeer came within four points of breaking record Monday night at East Junior High School as he punished the rims for 29 points to lead his Pioneer point pursuers over McKen dree, 77-52. Dutch, who is all business once he gets on the floor, treated the hometown fans to some fancy shooting last night. He hit just about all kinds of shots. First the crowd saw him hit for three or (our running one hand shots, then the fans saw him drive in for a couple. Once or twice he was on the (ront end of a fast break, and of course there was the couple of times he stole the ball to make easy lay-ups and the other times when he just nonchalantly stood way out and tossed in some two handed set shots. While all this was going on, few realized that he was well on his way to a record. What's the record? Well, the first yeor the Pioneer Conference was formed some hot-shot had a field night at the buckets by pouring In 32 points. The record has held ever since. So Near, So Far Last night it was in grave danger, though. Miller, tossed In 13 field goals and three charity shot* for 29 points. Twice In the second half Dutch missed easy lay-up •hots when he broke Into the clear. Had he connected safely the conference record would have been rewritten today with Dutch Mill• er's name on the dotted line. Fire chief Jim Lewis was one of the fans at the game last night, but whether he was there for precautionary measures had no effect on the Pioneers. They went right ahead and burned up the place with their terrific shooting. And right In front of Lewis' eyes. About the only guy that stayed within the fire laws was George Gaunder. Last Saturday against Eureka, Gaunder might have been thrown in the clink had Lewis been at the game. He hit. for four straight long set shots before, he missed. Last night it was a different Gaunder that took the floor. His first four shots bounced off the rim. Then he finally hit one of his deadly set shots and the ice was broken. But that brief spell of prosperity lasted just one shot. He had all kinds of trouble finding the range. The two big rough tough boys on the Shurtleff squad, Rob Poe and Bob Jones, teamed up last night to prove slightly less than a couple 1 sticks of dynamite. The duo exploded for 30 points between them. Poe pumped in 16 points on four buckets and eight free tosses, while Jumpln' jack Jones rained in the same number of (Ield goals and half a dozen foul dips. You Bad, Bad Boy Jones just about didn't make It. He had two fouls in the first minute of the game and three In four minutes. Coach Merle Pearce yanked him after the third one and cooled him off. Later when he went In the game his hands didn't get in the way of a loose McKendree wrist or back or rib. Sometimes they look so Inviting. Maybe he just couldn't resist the temptation In the opening minutes. If John Logan makes It through this season he's a better man than his physique indicates. John stands about six feet (our Inches and weighs 165 pounds. Picture that In your mind. If you can't, frame in your mind how an overgrown pool cue would look, then you get a reasonable Idea of "Hobo". Like most of the other games this season, Logan took a beating under the boards last night. II seems the other teams pick on no one but him. The small McKendree team used his ribs as a step ladder to grab rebounds. They used his face as a punching bag. And they used his back as a cushion coming down (rom grabbing rebounds. "Hobo" stuck In there. He managed to sneak In four field goals and a foul toss for nine points. The height advantage that Shurtleff had was bound to come sooner or later. It came near the end of the first half, when the Pioneers pulled away to a ten point, 33-23 lead. They grabbed rebounds like they Bowling ACME Knights «( Celamtnts Commodores won 3 from Captains.

They had their plays down pat and didn't attempt to hurry. Heart Failure In the second half, the Pioneers spurted to a fast 41-26 lead and then McKendree tried some of the hustle-bustle Shurtleff style and found It worked. The visitors scared everybody In the place but the fans who had journeyed down from Lebanon to witness the game. They shot from way out. every time they got their hands on the ball. And what surprised everyone was the fact that they were going in. The cagers from Lebanon closed the gap to six points, 52-46. But then the dynamite due, Rob Roe and Jones, took command of the situation and snuffed out the valiant rally by the hot shooting McKendree baskctballers. High man for the invaders was Beaty, who used his wicked two handed push, Jump shot to cash in on seven field goals for 14 points. Re was the main troublemaker when the McKendree cagers started their rush. Twice the action got so furious In the late stages of the game, that the referees had to separate Grant of McKendree and a couple of other Pioneers. Grant was no big man by any measures. But his fiery attitude under the buckets and his roughness gave the Pioneers a lot of trouble. Maybe too' much for some of the Pioneers. The victory was Shurtlcffs ninth of the season and third in Pioneer Conference play. The Alton collegians are now the undefeated leaders In their conference. On the loss side they have dropped three.

The teams In the Alton area will participate In (our regional!. At Belleville will be the holt Maroons, Belleville Cathedral, Dtipo, East St Louis, Central Catholic of East St. Louis, Marls•a, oration, and the winner of the Waterloo district which includes Columbia, Freeburg, Mascoutah, New Athens, Okawvllle, Red Bud, Valmeyer and Water- too. At Colllnsvllle's regional will '• Alton, Western Military Academy, Colllnsvllle, EdwardsvlUe, Granite City, Madison, Wood River, and the winner of the Roxana district which Includes Bethalto, Lebanon, Marine, Roxana, St. Jacob, Troy and Venice. At the Glllesple regional, Bunker Hill, Carlinvllle, Gillespie, Hllls- boro, Litchfield, Mt. Olive, Staunton, and the winner of the Brighton district are entered. The Brighton district Includes Benld, Brighton, Medora and Shlpman. And at the Jerseyville regional, Brussels, Carrollton, Greenfield, Hardin, Jerseyville, Roodhouse, and White Hall are entered along with the winner of the Eldred dis- rict, which will Include St. John's of Carrollton, Eldted, Grafton, Hillview, Kampsville and Kane. Out of those (our, we'd say that the Alton district teami have tho toughest row to hoe at CoUtntville. Edwardsvllle, Wood River, and Colllntville are battling It out (or the southwestern Conference flag, and we think that pairings will make the difference. It all three are bracketed together, anything can happen. If two are In one bracket and one In the other, the team in the bracket by Itself (of the three) should have the edge. Granite City looks like the toughest of the other five teams, but Alton, Madison and Western aren't to be overlooked. And the Roxana district could produce a challenger, either the Shells or the team that beats them. At Belleville, we'd say that the Dupo Tigers will have their handi full getting by the Belleville Maroons and East St. Louis Flyers, But Dupo, on the other hand, is going to be tough to beat, for any team in the tourney. We figure that the district winner won't have too much of a chance. At Jerseyville, the host Panther: and Carrollton are going to bs rough along with Grafton, if the Grafton crew wins the Eldred district, which seems probable. The Gillespie regional should be rough also, with Bunker Hill definitely an underdog with such teams as Gillespie and Hillsboro in the race. But Benld might prove rougher than expected.
