Aerial Circus Here Friday- Carroll Shifts Schaben for Hawks The air ni?e will take over hero Friday night when the Carroll Tigers rntertnin Id;i Grove in a Homecoming fool hall same on the Carroll Athletic Field at 8 p.m. The Tiger?, in a familiar under- do? role, will trot out their freshman passing sensation. George Provopulos. for the benefit of old grads and the consternation of the visiting Hawks. Provopulos hit nine of 19 for 255 yards and a pair of touchdowns here last week when he came in as a substitute. This week he gets the starting call at quarterback. Scliaben at End John Schaben, former first string quarterback, has been shifted to end to augment the aerial show. With Schaben at right end and either John Helmkamp or Larry Cover at left end along with Roger Kaspersen at wing back, Carroll has three fine pass receivers to send downfield. The ground attack won't be overlooked. Leonard Snyder, who paces the Tigers on the ground with a 5.1 yard average, will man the right halfback post. Either Jon Lane with a 4.9 yard average, or Dave Wenck with a 1.7 yard average, will fill the left half spot. However, the emphasis will be in the air and Carroll won't be the only club throwing the football. Hawk Aerial Artist Ida Grove has one of the finest passers in the Midwest Conference in Curt Rupert. The Ida Grove ace operates at the fullback spot in the single wing formation which makes him the so-called spin back. Rupert is a dual threat at that post. He can throw with the best and he is a top ground gainer on quick bursts up the middle. The Hawks have done about the same thing as the Tigers. They moved Joe Dolejs, formerly a tail- 2 Times Herald. Carroll, l«. Thursday, Oct. 22, 1959 bark, to the right end position to] help the air game. Their wing back, in another shift that paral- j lels Carroll strategy, is Dave Hink ' who formerly operated at end. Carroll w i! 1 have a definate weight advantage in the offensive line. The Tigers weigh in at an average of 171 or 172 depending on 'vhr'hor Kon Edwards or Terry Kroeger slarl al left guard and on whether John Helmkamp or Larry Cover starts at left end. In any event, the Hawks will average either 161 or 162 in the line so it still figures out to about a 10- pound edge for Carroll. In the backfield, the visitors will average 164. In comparison, Carroll will average 153 if Wenck starts or Ifil if Lane starts. That amounts to a deficit of either 11 pounds per man or a deficit of only three pounds per player. In team weights Carroll will enjoy either a three-pound or a five- pound edge. The Tigers will average either 165 or IfiB compared to a 1fi2 or 163 average or the Hawks. Edge Nullified The weight comparisons actually are misleading since they are computed on the starting offensive units. When Ida Grove is on defense Howard Ehlers, 225-pound senior, will move into a middle guard posilion. Therefore his presence will nullify the 10-pound edge the Tigers would enjoy if they played againsl the Ida Grove offensive line throughout the game. Ida Grove is a veteran club with seven seniors and two juniors slated for starting roles. Coach Ralph Capitani, newcomer to the Hawk staff, has brought a pair of sophomores, Tom Stewart at right guard and Lloyd Miller at left half, up to the first team in an effort to curb the early season letdown that resulted in defeats | administered by Cherokee, Lake City, Jefferson and Harlan and a tie with Denison. The Hawks carry a record of one victory, one tie and four losses. Carroll has a mark of two wins and four setbacks.

But Burlington was a near- unanimous choice for first place, Burlington breezed past third- rated Ames 39-7 last week for its sixth straight victory. The Gray- hounds were ranked first on all but one of the 26 ballots cast by sports editors and sportscastcrs. The 25 first-place votes and the 258 points given Burlington were the most any team has received this season. The loss sent Ames skidding to coupled with an earlier loss to West Waterloo, ended their title hopes. East Waterloo, which has a five- game winning streak since its 3514 loss to Burlington in the season opener, didn't get a first-place vote but was second on 15 ballots and drew 191 points to move into the runnerup spot. Coach Tony Guzowski's team jumped from sixth place after its 27-7 victory over second-rated Mason City last week. The ranking marked East's first serious bid for the -mythical state championship. East was not in the top 20 in the first poll, was 14th in the second and 6th the past two weeks. Mohawks Slump Mason City slumped to fifth place after the loss, its first setback in six starts. Davenport, fifth a week ago, drew 144 points for third. Davenport defeated Clinton 32-0 last week and has only a tie with Davenport Assumption to mar its record. Undefeated Mount Pleasant made one of the biggest advances, moving from 10th to 4th with 109 points on the strength of its 52-0 decision over Keokuk. Iowa City, ninth last week, went to sixth with 100 points after a 33-6 victory over Cedar Rapids Jefferson. Iowa City was given the other first place vote. Cherokee and Sioux City East, tied for seventh last week, hole down the eigth and ninth spots. Despite the big shuffle in the lop ten, there were no new teams among the leaders.

Furthermore, we will trot out the "once bitten, twice shy" expression insofar as upset predictions arc concerned. Last week's upset call failed to materialize as ; Glidden-Ralston was upended 2(5-1 Ji at the hands of Exira. On the other hand, Scranton slipped past Guthrie Center, 19-14, with a game' breaker in the second half. | So those two reversals kept the percentage mark under 80 again. The season record shows 74 attempts and 59 correct solutions for an average of .797, or 79 per cent. The sad part of this performance is the fact the critics, the downtown coaches and quarterbacks, contend anything under 90 per cent is strictly from hunger. They reason that half of the selections are automatic, and if you went eenie-meenie, etc. on the other half you would hit 50 per cent there. So by adding 100 per cent i'or the automatics plus 50 per cent for the coin-flips you get 150 per cent divided by two (presumably for two phases) and come out with 75 per cent. Any dope can do that, they say, and that might be where the expression "dope bucket" originated when somebody dumped a bucket of tar on the head of the "expert," and said, "There's a bucTcet, you dope!" Unfortunately this looks like the week the tar will be used and the feathers could be utilized to fly away to never-never land. Thirteen games, and this is how they might come out. SIOUX FALLS (CATHEDRAL) over Kuemper. Might as well start with one of the toughest on the list. My Kuemper cohort says this would be a nip and tuck toss-up, if the Knights were at full strength. But he goes on to say that Tom Champion is now out for the season with a leg injury. Steve Macke and Paul Collison are still out for the season. Dave Rettenmaier and John Martin are likewise gone for duration. And there are some others hobbling around. We hear that Sioux Falls has a huge team that has lost three games. They were beaten by Sioux City (East), 33-7; by Sioux j City (Heelan), 35-0; and they lost to Sioux Falls (Washington). Apparently this information was supposed to convince the progrostica- tor that this is a game the visitors can win here Saturday night. Suckered again! IDA GROVE over Carroll. The torrent of words emanating from Carroll High with the never ending refrain of "pick Ida Grove because . . ." can mean only one thing. It's Homecoming for the Tigers and the coaching staff wants a whipping boy to fire up the team. They want to say, "The expert picked the other team. Go out there and prove he's . a bum!" They might do it, too. But the facts reveal Ida Grove is a hard-hitting club that inflicts physical punishment on the opponents. The Hawks have had a hard-luck season and have started to jell with Curt Rupert at the controls. Since the Hawks have lost to Lake City, Jefferson, and Harlan and tied Denison, their only recourse is to pick on the other teams in the league. Look for an all-out, no holds bar-, red effort by Ida Grove here Friday night. HARLAN over Lake City. Another stumbling block. This should be an open-and - shut selection. But don't forget Lake City is the most surprising and most under - rated team in the Midwest Conference. The Eagles have a habit of turn- ing opposition mistakes and let- t'owns into victories. Only Jefferson has decisioned Coach Jim Yunek's lads and the Harlan Cyclone could be contained in an upset. DENISON over Audubon. Another cliff-hanger. This one has me in a quandary. Audubon is a better tr-am than the record indicates. The same thing applies to Denison. The Monarchs got a slow start but they have come a long way in a hurry. If they are still hurrying they will get past the Wheelers without a summons for speeding. JEFFERSON over Sac City. At long last. Here's a prediction that should hold up. But that isn't the way Coach Ray Brynes, of Jefferson, tells it. In his version the league leaders are due for a big let down and the loop's cellar club suddenly becomes a vorac ions tribe of Indians on the war path. They lifted the Jefferson scalps so scientifically there wasn't a trace of blood. At this point we tuned in on a different channel in search of a nightmare with a different plot. GLIDDEN-RALSTON over' Bayard. Yep, there he was. Coach Robert "Two-gun" Miller, of Glidden-Ralston, backed up against the dead end of a box canyon and Bayard's underrated pack was sealing up Ihe enlrance. But the script writer rushed in with the latest installment and the scenario called for a reversal of form by the Wildcats because they are still in the race if somebody can surprise Exira. However, to remain in the race they must get past Bayard. EXIRA over Manilla. W h a t else? Glidden-Ralston beat Manilla and Exira took the Wilde a t s. That's what the ouija board said. But the carping critics cried with alarm and said watch out for Manilla. This is the team that can make Howard Justice wish he had stayed home (Manilla) instead of trekking off to Exira to coach. MANNING over Scranton. You can't even find a sure thing anymore. Look what Scranton did to Guthrie Center. If they can do it to one, why not another? Yet when the facts are shunted into the right slots the Bulldogs look triumphant. OGDEN over Coon Rapids. The only sound basis for this guess is the fact Ogden gave Bayard a fairly close game and Bayard gave Coon Rapids a 27-0 setback earlier in the year. That seems to indicate the visitors might have a slight edge. PERRY over Guthrie Center. This is one of the games Guthrie Center invariably points for, but Coach Graydon Lappe has too many horses at Perry and Coach Jerry Martin seems to be shy on bronc busters at Guthrie Center. AR-WE-Va over Dow City. The coaches who have played against Ar-We-Va say the Rockets have a big team that's a betler team than the record indicates. Those who have triumphed over the Rockets profess they were glad to get off the field with a victory and were satisfied with any margin. So we flipped the well worn coin and it came up Rockets. WALL LAKE over Lytton. For two long years those Comets have been waiting to light a victory bonfire. This could be the week. Crestland defeated Lytlon, 46 - 0, and Crestland defeated Wall Lake by a 36-6 score. That indicates Wall By ED WILKS Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)—The American League, having vetoed another franchise shift and Ignoring the National League's stand-pat attitude, today turned to the possibility of expanding to 10 teams. An expansion committee, set up on the spot after representatives o! the eight American League clubs heard a franchise plea from Minneapolis Wednesday, held ifj first meeting here today. Toronto reportedly will receive top consideration by the three- man committee as an expansion partner for Minneapolis—already staked out with St. Paul by th'a proposed Conlinenlal League. While no announcement was expected after the initial session of the expansion committee, it is understood that half of the AL club owners already are in favor nl expanding. League rules call for three-fourths approval—six clubs —for expansion. Just this week American League owners barred Calvin Griffith's bid to move his Washington Senators to Minneapolis in an informal poll by the Washington president That action, however, did not snub Minneapolis as a possible I franchise site. Instead, it could he ! looked upon as appeasing some congressmen who have, in effect. j said major league baseball would be found a monopoly if it quit th« capital. j Bill Dewitt, new president of the Detroit Tigers; Hank Green| berg, vice president of the C'hi- l cago White Sox, and George Weiss general manager of the New York Yankees, comprise the expansion committee. The National League has no such committee, although President Warren Giles said the owners have discussed it two or three times. Cuban King Gets Nod Over Logart MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP> The manager of Cuban welterweight champion Luis Manuel Rodriguez is calling for a crack at the world title on the heels of his boy's 25th straight victory, a 10-round decision over Isaac Logart of New York. Ernesto Corrales set up the clamor after the unbeaten Rodriguez closed strong for a unanimous verdict from the judges and referee in a nationally televised bout Wednesday night. "Luis kayoed Charley Scott who is now the No. 1 contender so now we want the champion, Don Jordan," Corrales declared. Logart, also originally from Cuba, carried the fight to Rodriguez for the first four rounds but weakened and Rodriguez came on strongly with authoritative lefts to the body and head. Lake was a shade tougher than Lytton and that's the basis for the prediction. LAKE VIEW over Lohrville. We will round out the week with a tossup. The two teams are fighting for the Bo-Coon lead with Lake View i and Crestland hampered by a tie. That means the Black Hawks must win. They are playing at home and Wayne Smidt should be back in action. The incentive is present and j the Black Hawks could prevail in one of the season's best games.
