Franklin Noses Out miuei in Nip-and-Tiick Net BattleBulldogs Show Power During Part of Contest; Cline Leads Grizzlies to Win in Late Rally.aBY DICK MILLERButler and Franklin staged one of their old-fashioned basketball struggles Wednesday night at the Bulldog lieldhouse, with the Baptists gaining a 31-28 verdict by a late game rally. Those who remembered the old Franklin Wonder Five and the Butler teams of the same time when WTaily Middies-worth, Hal Griggs et al. served the wonder boys their lone defeat one season thoroughly enjoyed the free scoring battle staged by the two teams and left the fieldhouse with a feeling of praise for the winner and loser equal.The delayed offense, generally called the stall, was absent and everybody was happy.Cline, a freshman forward, listed on the score card as a sub, scored six field goals and three fouls for fifteen points. Allen and Christopher were the big guns for Butler.The Hinklemen cut an early Franklin lead to 17 to 16 at the hail.Then the tide turned to Butler as soon as the haif opened, and the Bulldogs soon were in front, 25 to 17. Cline swung into action again, aided by Shirley and Wooden, and the count was knotted again at 25 all. A couple of foul goals gave the invaders a lead they hung on to until the gun.The drive staged by Butler in the closing minutes of th“ first half and the start of the second, when they ran fifteen points while the invaders stood on one count, was a great demonstration of basketball. Butler outscored Franklin twelve field goals to eleven, but the Grizzlies connected nine times in thirteen attempts from the free throw mark while the Bulldogs were making good on four out of seven.
