Rams Win CIAA Golf Title
The Winston-Salem State Col
lege Rams have won their sixth
Central Intercollegiate Athletic
Association Golf Tournament, by
a margin of 46 points.
The defending C. I. A. A.
Golf champs finished their re
gular golf season play last week.
The Rams won 4 out of 6
matches this year. They defeat
ing Livingstone College, St. Paul
College, Howard University, and
Morgan State College. The two
teams who defeated the Rams
were Howard and Morgan, in a
triangular meet in Washington,
D. C.
The Rams will lose Ostell Mc-
Knight a senior, but Sam Pur-
year, Earl Puryear, Everett
(Doc) Payne, and George Mc
Clendon will return next year.
Sam Puryear of the Rams won
medalist honor in a sudden death
playoff with teammate Ostel Mc-
Knight.
He copped the championship
trophy with a bogey on the 394-
yard, par four, first hole, Win
ston Lake Golf course. McKnight
recorded a double bogey on the
hole to lose. Puryear a native of
Winston-Salem, fired the lowest
round of the tournament, a 79 on
the opening day. He closed with
an 84 for a total of 163, matched
by McKnight, who recorded 81-
82. McClendon had 180 for two
days, while the latter Puryear
had 175.
Other team scores were Liv
ingstone, 727 for the second
place trophy, Morgan State, 756,
Howard University 761. and St.
Paul’s College 813.
Ted Blunt, the Little Magician,
and Richard Glover, the big
pointmaker and rebounder for
the Winston-Salem State Rams,
climaxed a good 22-4 season for
the Rams by being selected for
the Olympic tryouts in March.
Both players were picked for
action with the NAIA (National
Association of Intercoll e g i a t e
Athletics) team in Kansas City,
Mo. Neither made the final Olym
pics team, however, but both of
them showed well. Along with
Ernie Brock of Virginia State,
they were the first CIAA players
given the opportunity to seek
Olympic berths in basketball.
Glover and Blunt, however, did
achieve recognition as all-CIAA
players. Blunt was also the most
valuable player in two tourna
ments. the Georgia Invitational
in Atlanta, Ga., and the Holiday
Festival in Winston-Salem. Both
tournaments featured national
competition.
Glover and four other seniors.
Mickey Smith. Willie Curry.
Louis (Left Hand) Parker and
Charles Simmons, played their
last games for the Rams this
past season.
The Rams ended the season
with the best won-lost record,
17-3. in CIAA competition, but
finished in second place to A&T.
15-5, based on the Dickinson Rat
ings. The Rams also won two
tournaments, the Georgia Invita
tional and the Holidaj^ Festival.
They beat A&T in two of three
meetings this season.
Blunt will return to the team
next season. Other returnees will
be Joe Cunningham, Ted Ratch-
ford. Earl Monroe and Gilbert
Smith, among last season’s let-
termen.
The Rams once more will be
eligible for post-season tourna
ment play after a one-year sus-
p>ension.

Don’t worry if your job is small
And your rewards are few,
Remember that the mighty oak
Was once a nut like you.
Ram Track Team
Finishes Season
The Winston-Salem State Col
lege track team did not have a
winning year this past season.
Coach George Walker predicted
a better record next season.
Coach Walker said, “Leon Cole
man has proven to be the most
outstanding man on the team
with Thomas Gomillion and Ken
neth Sheppard running a close
second. Horace Webb would have
proven himself very valuable but
he was out with a leg injury.”
The Rams participated in the
following meets:
Quadrangular meet at North
Carolina College March 25, with
Johnson C. Smith, A&T, North
Carolina College.
Virginia State Triangular meet

North Carolina College.
South Carolina State Relays,

Fayetteville State Invitational,
April 25, with State and Living
stone competing.
C.I.A.A. Championship meet,
May 8 and 9.
In all these meets, State scored
points in the hurdles, relays, and
dashes. They did not win any
meets, however.
They will travel to Raleigh for
the A.A.U. Track and Field
Championship meet in June.
Coleman, Gomillion and Ray
Wiles will make the trip.
Coach Walker said, “It has
been a long, hard season. How
ever, there will be a lot of new
faces next season, and our best
men are returning.”
