I draft choice. Jones, a member of the 1972 U.S. Olympic squad was originally drafted in the ABA by the Carolina Cougars but his rights in that league were recently transferred to the Denver Rockets. Houston Rockets' president and general manager Ray Patterson said money was the reason for his team's withdrawal in bidding for Jones services. "The bidding for his services has placed us in an untenable position," Patterson said. "History has proven that only one rookie in the 28-year existence of the NBA has immediately turned around a franchise into a champion. That, of course, is Kareem Abdul Jabbar of Milwaukee. Recent developments have accelerated demands beyond even what that superstar received for his first professional season. by Dill Kay Sports Editor Beware, Tar Heel foes, Carolina's bats are alive and well. Aided by homeruns from Bill Lee and Ronnie Merritt, UNCs Tim Collins coasted to his second consecutive complete game victory in the Summer League in besting Campbell College, 7 2, here Friday night. In scattering ten hits, the bespectacled rising sophomore from Fayeteville led the Heels in their third straight win and undisputed possession of first place in the Summer League race. UNCs record now stands at a respectable 5-3 as they take on Appalachian Wednesday night in Boshamer Stadium starting at 7:30 p.m. It looked as if it would be a long evening for UNC as Collins loaded the bases in the first on a hit and two straight walks. Shortstop Bill Lee, who played faultless defense in handling seven chances successfully, ended the threat with a defensive gem behind second base, beating the runner at first by one step. Collins, an obscure pitcher on the junior varsity with only 12 innings under his belt "missed low" in the first and didn't get his curve or knuckler in as much as his last victory. "1 got stronger as the game progressed," Collins said. "1 use my knuckler as a change of pace pitch and 1 was mixing my pitches well, relying mainly on my fastball." The burly Collins could have played Legion ball this summer but decided on the Summer League because of better competition. Carolina produced all the runs Collins needed as they exploded for four runs in the top of the first inning on six hits. The big blow was Bill Lee's leadoff homerun to straight away left. The Heels then added a single run in the second after a walk to Marty Rasnake, an infield hit by Early Jones and Bobby Guthrie's run producing double (which came within 2-3 feet of clearing the fence in left). Ronnie Merritt's roundtripper in the sixth with Charlie Spivey on board accounted for the final two runs. Collins surrendered single runs in the fourth and ninth innings, but the outcome was already determined. Carolina continued its torrid winning 1 r 0 ij i, . r i .,.,,.. - 9 1 i r 1 1 nj:,:! . l r :n r " 'vi'1 ""J mm VEEJLAQES By The only place in Chapel Hill where your rent dollar buys so many features: O Clubhouse O 3 Swimming Pools O Tonnis Courts O Platform Tennis O Sauna Oaths O Dilliard Room O Ping Pong O Foos Ball O Sunday morning Continental breakfast O TV Lounge O Hourly Bus transportation to UNC; Special service to sporting events, and shopping centers O Dry cleaning pick-up O Guost suites available on a nightly basis O Convenience storage in basement O 1 -Bedroom studio O 1 -Bedroom mezzanine O 2-Bcdroom flat O 2-Bodroom townhouse O Fully electric kitchens with dishwashers O Somo apartments with fireplaces O Some apartments with washerdryer connections O 24-hour security O All utilities included in your rent O Furnished apartments available O Beautifully landscaped courtyards O Interest returned on your security deposit We have chosen Mohasco to furnish our models. t.NNr.V.v.v.v.v.v.v.v.vXvX-X-: Located Smith Level Road, Carrboro, TJ.C.

They combined a solid defense (not committing an error) and pounded out 12 hits (five extra base). Leading the offense were Bill Lee, a homerun and a single; Ronnie Merritt, a homerun, single and double; Early Jones, three singles; and Bobby Guthrie, two long doubles. Head Coach Harry Lloyd is encouraged by Carolina's current surge which has enabled the Heels to overtake ' both Campbell and Louisburg in the pennant race. "1 always expected the defense to come around," Lloyd admits. "We are being successful because we have had great balance more consistent pitching and more aggressive hitting. Playing together as a unit has added to" our confidence but we just have to see what happens Sunday (doubleheader at Appalachian), 1 hope we can keep it going." Lloyd considers an experienced Louisburg team as the team to beat this summer, judging from their victory here last week. With Steve Rackley expected back in the lineup soon, he pinch hit Friday night (swinging well) for his first appearance of the summer, Carolina's prospects look good with the pitching coming around and the rest of the team hitting well. Rackley still has difficulty throwing at full speed. Mike Wilkerson returned to the lineup Friday night, recovering from a high fever, and had one solid hit in four at bats.. .Bobby Guthrie has played second base the last few games, giving Charlie Spivey a rest because he's been in a slump. Guthrie has supplied an added dimension to the lineup with his quick bat. In case you missed it, the Tar Heels began their winning ways with a 9-2 victory over previously unbeaten Campbell Wednesday night at Buies Creek behind Bob Cook's three-hit complete game. Cook was buried this past spring underneath a wealth of talented pitchers on Walter Rabb's staff and accordingly his last outing had been way back in late July, 1973. He has been plagued with control problems over the last two years and even though he walked eight batters Wednesday night had no reason to complain. Cook pitched out of several jams; stranding two runners in the second and third innings, fanning Dav id Johnson with two on the end of the troubled fifth inning. Marty Rasnake in left handled eight chances flawlessly to lead a solid defense. Jimmy Baldwin, Dave Gursoy and Stuart Watlington ended with two RBl's apiece and Baldwin and Guthrie had three hits, Leigh ton two. Thursday night the Heels pulled outa 4-2 win at Wilmington when Jimmy Baldwin ripped a two-out. two-run single in the top of the ninth inning. The hit gave Mike Merritt his first win of the year who had a four-hit performance including eight strikeouts. Baldwin fouled off five pitches before delivering a shot over shortstop, scoring Dave Gursoy (who had singled) and Marty Rasnake with the game winner. Carolina was down 2-1 going into the ninth. Gursoy singled, Rasnake walked. Bill Lee moved them over with a sacrifice. Early Jones was walked, Bobby Guthrie struck out and Baldwin supplied the heroics. Summer League Standings V I.

III m-w m ?WI 111 ffllll f , Dr. Sfcatterly i r hick fog shrouded the wet cobblestone streets on LI that dark and fateful January evening in 1 896 when Dr. Vincent Shatterly, noted professor of bio-chemistry and amateur surgeon in the county of Nettle ton, England, began conducting the first of his' experiments! Goaded by the sneers and skepticism of his narrow-minded colleagues, Dr. Shatterly was soon confronted with an astounding discovery: THAT WHEN A FINELY POWDERED BLEND OF SELECT TOBACCOS WAS COMBINED WITH SUCH PURE ESSENTIAL OILS AS ATTAR OF ROSE BERGAMO! MENTHOL AND EUCALYPTUS, A NEW AND MYSTIFYING SUBSTANCE OF INVIGORATING QUALITIES WAS CREATED! Ceremoniously dubbing his triumph "my secret sniffing snuff," Dr. Shatterly pressed on as would a man possessed to perfect the formula making secretive notations and speaking to no one save himself. Then at last arrived the moment of truth. Taking a small measured pinch of the pungent, mind-boggling powder between his tired, trembling fingers, the good doctor held it momentarily under his proud nose. " Then sniffing quickly and deeply with both nostrils, he intoned loudly: "Let my toad-brained colleagues at the University scoff at me now!!!" The rest is history. Today, thanks to a band of dedicated followers, Dr. Shatterly s Secret Sniffing Snuff has been carefully preserved in its original unaltered form for those who dare seek its pleasure. And so, a word to the adventurous: if your mind seeks new nourishment ... if you say "Fie!!!" to those who insist that there are some doors that man was not meant to open ... if you, like Dr. Shatterly, are steadfastly convinced that the way to a person's head is through his nose . . . then perhaps, just perhaps, you too are ready to experience the unique stimulation, invigoration and gratification that only Dr. Shatterly s Secret Sniffing Snuff can provide. And there is but one way to find out. Heh. Heh. HA. -M Jim,--! t 0 J"H njf'ti Oil V J Available in original Olde English and Wild Strawberry Flavours at drugstores, headshops and the like. i
