Tipton Tribune (Newspaper) - October 10, 1964, Tipton, Indiana HAROLD J. BURTON AilChlV'ii ASSISTANT INDIANA STATE LIBH INDIANAPOLIS,� INDI ENTERED AS SECOND CLASS MATTER OCTOBER 4, 1895 AT POST OFFICE AT TIPTON, INDIANA VOLUME 69, NUMBER 6 TIPTON (IND.) DAILY TRIBUNE SATURDAY,'OCTOBER 10, 1964 7 CENTS PER COPY - 35 CENTS PER WEEK DNAPE REPORTED HOSTA Satans Seize CIC Lead On 41-7 Victory Tipton's Blue Devils, battling to retain their statewide recognition, urged into undisputed possession of first place in the Central Indiana Conference standings with a six-touchdown parade against Elwood last" night to drop the Panthers from co-leadership into third place behind Peru which tallied a 35-0 victory over Alexandria in another CIC headliner last night. Elwood battled determinedly for one half, leaving the field at intermission trailing by only 13-7, but in the second half the manpower in the Tipton backfield, plus the weight advantage of the Satan front line wore down' the Panthers and the Blue Devils swept t \v o touchdowns in each of the lasi two periods. -( It took Tipton just nine plays to dent paydirt after Danny Crouch returned Elwood's opening kickoff from the Tipton 15 yard line to the 34, despite a 15-yard gain on the first play from scrimmage by. Billy Moore being nullified by - a five yard offsides penalty against the Blue Devils. Tipton moved the ball from the 34 to Elwood's 22 via three first downs. Temporarily the going got tougher, as from there, Moore gained four yards and Crouch three and one for a situation on the Elwood 14, but from there Crouch barreled the last 14 yards for the touchdown. Lex Boyd's PAT try' was wide but he got new life wt^eh Elwood was offsides on the kick* and his second '. try split 'the , uprights for, ibe 'first of Jive ] extra points he booted enroute to the victory. Jim Rumbaugh, favoring a knee battered in the Cathedral game, didn't get into action with the offensive unit and got no opportunity. to carry the ball, but made a big contribution on defense when.he recovered an Elwood fumble on the Tipton 33 after the kickoff which followed the first Tipton score. Tipton penalties slowed the Satans and the two clubs closed out the first quarter on punt exchanges which ended with Moore returning an Elwood kick from Tipton's 40 to the midfield stripej and Crouch moving into Elwood territory at the 46 on a four yard gain as the period ended. Elwood gambled on a fourth down situation after a Crouch punt to the Elwood 10 was nullified by a 15 yard offensivchold-ing penalty against Tipton, and Tipton took the ball over on Elwood's 33. Jim Harmon sent a 19 yard pass -to Greg Haley which was downed on the Elwood 14. Crouch gained six but again Tipton drew a 15 yard holding penalty .to make it firs.t down and 25 to go on the 29 yard line. Harmon fired another pass which Lex Boyd made a beautiful fingertip C2tch on 10 yards from the goal line and, regaining his balance crossed jnto the end zone standing up. His second point try was wide and Tipton led 13-0.

By STEVE SNIDER UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI)-Back in the winning groove and their home park, the New York Yan- fired a strike to Beasley with the latter forced out of bounds on Tipton's four yard line. Lyle Robinson plunged over from there' and Alley kicked the extra point to make it 13-7, a score that stood up through the half. Coach John Moses' midweek strategy paid off in the second half with the versatile Moore moving into an alternating quarterback role from where, almost single handedly he rotated on keeper and role out plays to score the first touchdown of the second half with 6:36 left on the clock. Tipton held after Elwood received the kickoff and the Panthers -punted iback to Tipton on the 43 yard line. Here it took Moore just three plays to move the 57 yards for Tipton's second score of the quarter. The Yo-Yo carried for four and three yard gains to midfield, then rolled out around right end 50 ySrds for the touchdown. Both of Boyds third quarter kicks were> good and Tipton led 27-7 as the final quarter started. Back at quarterback, Jim Harmon fifed a perfect strike to Jim Hannah who raced from the Elwood 45 to the four yard line before he was downed from behind early in the final quarter. Hannah gained three to the one yard line on the first down, but after he was stopped for no gain on the second try Crouch lunged through the middle for his second touchdown of the game and again Boyd's kick was good to make the score 34-7. Elwood was unable to gain fronfscrimmage, losing 33 yards in the final quarter. Robinson punted with the ball rolling dead on Tipton's 30 yard line, and the Satans moved from there for their final score. Crouch set it up on a 54 yard run aided by. a beautiful block by Moore to put the ball down on Elwood's 16 ydrd line.

All even after the first two games in St. Louis, the Cardinals countered with veteran left hander Curt Simmons, who will be making the first start of his career in series competition. Simmons was a member of the National League pennant - winning Philadelphia Phillies in 1950 but was in the Army when the World Series rolled around. The weather was expected to be clear and warm and the crowd was expected to be about 69,000, including ' Lynda Bird Johnson, daughter of the President. Although many teams have seen their World Series hopes disappear because of the problems created by playing in Yankee Stadium, Manager Johnny. Keane likes the more expansive playing area than Busch Stadium afforded. Have Speedy Fielders "If anything, this � park will help us," he said. "We have outfielders who can go and get the ball." The Cardinal manager also is hoping that Bill White and Lou Brock, tl'.e two hot-left-handed-hitting sluggers of the late St. Louis flag drive, will zero in on the "short right field porch" of the, stadium. Right-handed hitters such as Ken Boyer have a much more difficult target because the left field fence slopes rapidly away to 461 feet. The Yankees usually play better at the stadium than anywhere else because .their pitching is tailored to the. parki Manager Yogi Berra's pitchers keep the. ball away from left-handed pull-hitting strength and induce rival hitters to hit into the deeper areas of the park. Berra Is Optimistic "Any time you split on the road, it's all right," said Berra, summing up the Yankees' view of the division in St. Louis. "We're in a good spot with three games coming up at home." Bouton is a smallish, boyish-featured right-hander who won 18 games and lost. 13 for the Yankees this season. He throws a variety of pitches and moves the ball around a lot but does not have an exceptional fast ball. A former $65,000 bonus speed-baller, Simmons was. regarded as'washed up in 1960 when he was unconditionally released by the Phillies. He was given a chance by the Cardinals, however, and in the last four and a half seasons has won 59 games. Now 35, Simmons has lost the big fast ball of his youth and has substituted curves, sliders, changeups and razor-edge control. He won 18 games and lost nine this .season. Second - baseman Julian Javier's bruised left hip creates the only doubtful starter in either lineup.

De Gaulle For Third Force' MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (UPI) - French President Charles de Gaulle pushed his independent "third force" theme Friday as he plunged into a 14-hour working schedule beset by continued inclement weather. Toasting Uruguayan chief of state Luis Giannattasio at a state banquet, De Gaulle called for an assembly of nations "to lead on man's great struggle to free himself from hunger, want and ignorance." He said France and Uruguay will be among the first of such nations. The 73-year-old statesman, on the next-to-last stop of a 10-na-tion .

Drinking Hit MOSCOW (UPI) - The young Communist League's newspaper said Friday that prohibition is not the answer to Russia's drinking problem but putting alcholics in labor camps might be. Prohibition, the newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda said, is "a hypocritical bourgeois policy." But it said alcoholics who ignore public opinion and do not respond to treatment ought to be given labor camp sentences. It called for legislation to make this possible. "There is too much free time," one writer said. "Vodka provides the simplest and cheapest means of entertainment." T. H.

FOX United Press International TOKYO (UPI) - The Olympic games opened today to the sound of oriental gongs and the, spectacle" of 5,500 athletes marching.in rainbow-hured cos-1 tume to the delight of a proud! but rather reserved stadium j packed with 72,000 Japanese | and their overseas visitors. It was a perfect, sunny day for the start of the 18th Olympiad, first ever held in Asia.- Jet planes painted the five ring Olympic insignia in delicate colors in the sky. Doves in the thousands wheeled and circled above the vast crowd. Cannon boomed. A slender Hiroshima College boy in white ran gracefully around the rack and up more than 100 green carpeted steps to light the flame that will burn the; next two weeks. Sunday the athletes get down to the business they came here for -- competition in .rowing, basketball, boxing, football (soccer), weightlifting, field hockey, wrestling, swimming and. diving, riding, volleyball and Water polo. They are the first sports on the Olympic calendar for �'1964. ����).�", � ' f Pomp And Ceremony But today it was pomp and ceremony, music and speeches! Emperor Hirohito formally inaugurated the games in a one-sentence speech in Japanese: "I declare open the Olympic games of Tokyo at -the XVIII Olympiad of the modern era." The biggest cheers for the taams went, naturally, to the Japanese hots contingent and then almost equally to the United States, the Soviet Union and to Mexico - whose men and women in brilliant red jackets stood out vividly on the green field. The applause .in the vast arena was warm but certainly not thunderous and few spectators get to their feet. The Japanese -are noted for their re: serve. Until a few years ago", 'although wild about baseball, they would watch' a game in utter silence except to applaud mildly for a fine play or home run. Largo Number Participate There were 94 nations in today's opening ceremony. North Korea, Indonesia, Ecuador and Barbados withdrew at the last moment but it was still the largest Olympic turnout in history-surpassing by 10 the number of nations at Rome in 1960. They ranged from the huge German team, larger even than the. Russian and American contingents, to the entry from the country of Prince Rainier and Princess Grace. The manager of the "team" carried the flag of Monaco while a single athlete trudged rather sheepishly behind him._ The girls* looked lovely and honors for dress probably were taken by the British and German ladies, dressed almost identically, in all pink, and the Australian lasses in yellow. The American girls were in patriotic combine - blue bolero jackets, white skirts, red shoes and handbags with a few wearing red ribbons in their hair. The opening went without a hitch. Japanese police and members of the Ground Self Defense. Force (Army) were out en masse to control the crowds and traffic and squelch any would - be demonstrators. There was no worry. . Wears Western Suit Hirohito-dressed in western, morning suit-appeared in the. royal box shortly before 2 p.m. Japanese standard time. . A few minutes later, the Olympic team from Greece led the march into the stadium, the remainder coming in alphabetical order except for Japan, which as the host nation was last. Australia got a big welcome. The first of the Communist athletes were the Bulgarians. They waved' cheerfully to the 'stands ana were warmly applauded. When the 39-member Cuban delegation entered, it got a good cheer by waving individual little Japanese flags. On and on they came, until the 368-member United States team came marching in good rhythm. The American men wore cowboy-style hats. The flag bearer was shotputter Parry O'Brien. Right behind the Americans came Russia with weightlifter and poet Yuri Vksov carrying the hammer and sickle. Their women, sharp in cream colored suits, all waved red handkerchiefs to the crowd as they circled - the track and filed into line facing Hirohito. FACES TRAFFIC CHARGE David A.

Michael Smolen of Chandler, Ariz., from his doorstep here Friday. Particular attention was focused on the homes of friends land relatives of "Major" Maxi-imo Canales, a terrorist cop-killer implicated in previous "propaganda" kidnappings. Anonymous telephone callers told newspapers and radio stations Smolen is being held as a hostage for Nguyen Van Troi, a Communist terrorist sentenced to death in Viet Nam for trying to set a bomb trap for Defense Secretary Robert S. Mc-Namara. "One hour after we learn of Troi's execution, Smolen gets a bullet in the head," the callers said. The 45-year-old airman, deputy chief of the U.S. Air Mission here, was seized as he left his home with Col. Henry L. Choate, the mission chief, ani a civilian driver. None of ths three was armed. One bandit thrust his submachine gun into Smolen's abdomen .and the other pushed him into a waiting car. Neither Choate, who apparently was not recognized by the kidnappers, nor the driver was molested. (In Washington,, the State Department said Choate called ;";>r Smolen Friday because of "recent rumors" that the Communists were planning to kidnap an American official. ("Our'embassy came to | conclusion that Col. Smnkr [migM be one of several likf-v.-ivictims of a kidnapping plot'-' a State Department spokesin: v. I said. He did not explain v\::y .
