recovery on North Carolina
Central's two-yard line to score
an insurance touchdown in the
third quarter and then held off
the Eagles for a 10-8 inter
sectional football victory
Friday night at Durham County

The fumble came when
Central's freshman
quarterback, Ricky Moore
pitched to running back
Nathaniel Glenn but missed his
target and A&M's Calvin'
Dismuke recovered. ' ,
Elijah Alexander scored on.
the next play and Howard Ward
kicked the extra point to give
the Braves a 10-2 lead with 14
minutes left in the quarter.
Central mounted its only
scoring drive of the, game in the
same period when Moore ran in
from the five-yard line with
6:03 on the clock. John
Patterson's run for the point
after failed. That ' fixed the
score at 10-8.
From then until the final
seconds a crowd . of 10,000
watched both teams slug it out
on defense although Central's
opportunity for a 35-yard field
goal by Tyrone Boykin feB
The Eagles' other two points
came on a safety in the first
period when Alcorn center
Dennis Thomas snapped the
ball over punter Eddie
McCune's head and through the
end zone.
Central's only touchdown was
set up when Maurice Spencer
took an Alcorn punt and
returned it 29 yards to the
Alcorn 39.
Moore hit Roger Hodges with
a five-yard pass and then a 15
yard penalty on A&M moved
the ball to the 21 where the
Eagles had a first down.
Another pass to Hodges on
the same pattern was
incomplete but Moore countered
with an U-yard run to the 11.
Moore called another pass but
both receivers were covered in
the end zone and he elected to
run, getting five yards. He then
followed on the next play with
the Eagles' TO.
On its first possession Alcorn
marched to the Eagles' two
yard line. After three
unsuccessful stabs at the
Central line by Bobby Huell,
Oscar McAdory kicked a 25-yard
field goal for a 34 Brave lead.
The score came with 9:46 lift
in the first quarter.
Following an exchange of the
ball, Alcorn was forced to pant.
But this time center Dennis
Thomas' snap sailed over
kicker Eddie McCune's head
and rolled through the end zone
for a safety.
That made the score 3-2
Alcorn with 4:56 left in the
opening quarter. :
Neither team generated a
threatening drive the rest of the
quarter and Alcorn's one-point
margin held up at halftime. ,
While the Eagles' defense
continued to come up with good
play, the offense sputtered most
of the first half.
There were some bright
spots, however, but none that
really did more than send up
smoke signals.
James Smith proved to be the
most successful Eagle runner
against the Brave defense. His
longest run of a penalty-plagued
first half was a U-yard gainer
Nathaniel Glenn had the other
long Eagle run, a 13-yarder.
A good defensive effort on the
part of Nathaniel Boykin was
instrumental in the Eagles'
getting the safety.
Central punted to the Braves
and Boykin raced downfield to
drop Howard Ward at the eight
yard line. Then three
successive runs by Huell gained
six yards, leaving the Braves
with a fourth-and-four at their
14. Then Thomas snapped the
ball over McCune's head.
Johnson's running and receiv
ing helped Cincinnati hand
Houston its 13th straight Na
tional Football League loss Sun
day 24-10, despite a 103-yard
opening kickoff return by the
Oilers' Bob Gresham.
Cincinnati snapped a 10-10 tie
with two fourth-quarter touch
downs, one a 35-yard pass from
Ken Anderson to Bob Trumpy
and the other on a three-yard
run by Bobby Clark.
Johnson, a six-year man from
Grambling, rolled up a person
al high of 131 rushing yards,
scored on a 10-yard run and
caught five passes for 49 yards
as the Bengals squared their
record at 1-1.

Hank Aaron ol the Atlanta Braves is best known right now as

What's Aaron's secret of success? Pride. "I take pride in
Mbat I'mdoing every day I'm out there." he says. "You really
have to have it in baseball."
Maybe that's why he admires newspaper carriers. They've
got pride, too. Determination to get the job done, to serve their
customers dependably and well. They earn good money for it.

from giving their best.

Bonds may help them go to college or launch a life's career

running back james Rackley
being bottled up all night, held
A&M to four plays with only
69 seconds having elapsed.
Rattler punter Gregory
Coleman received a bad snap
from center, tried to run, but
was corralled far short or a first:
down at his own 44.
Then strong armed Reliford
pulled the rabbit out of the hat
on the next play, spotting
speedster Art is Stanfield
streaking down the right
sideline for a spectacular
44-yard touchdown tally.
Florida's offense began the
contest offering A&T several
scoring opportunities before

pounced on their first gift.
Punter Coleman received a
bad snap early in the first
quarter and turned the ball
over to, A&T as big defensive

covered the ball.
From A&M's 11, two plays
netted three yards when

falling, for a 6-0 advantage.
Defense plagued both
offenses the next 18 minutes
before Florida's cornerback
Felix Williams intercepted a
Reliford pass at his own 40 and
raced 60 yards. The Rattlers
were on their way leading 7-6.
Then on their first
possession in the third quarter,
A&M sustained a 13-play drive
from their 46, thanks to the
quarterbacking skill of Kenny
Holt and strong rushing efforts
from Rackley and Ralph Kyles.
With 3:28 left in the stanze,
A&M's growing confidence had
erected a 14-6 score with the
Aggies seemingly fading.
An A&M lost fumble at
their 24 ended up in a 26-yard
field goal failure for A&T, but
th'e Rattlers coughed the
pigskin up again on the next
series at their 36.
This time Reliford took
charge from Mckibbins and
guided his fired up flock to
two quick touchdowns with
pin point passing and gutty
running on his own.

The progressive 60's have come and gone.
Today, as we find ourselves struggling with the

society" started, a decade ago.
In retrospect, community action projects have
not been the end-all solutions to the Black man's
And one thing has become very, clear. A clenched
fist is almost powerless, if it is empty when opened.
If we are to maintain the. forward thrust of our
struggle, there must be something more tangible
about our clenched fist. Something real inside it.
Something that represents a greater power base.
Political power? Yes. But it must be based ori
economic power. The power that comes from own
ing more businesses. Holding more high paying
jobs. Being able to spread more wealth where it
will do more good,
An easy accomplishment? You know the answer
to that. But if the evils of slavery couldn't derail
the freedom train, then we can surely pay the
extra price of time, training, education, and most
important dedication, to earn a greater slice of
our nation's economic wealth.
As a symbol, a clenched fist is right on.
.. But remember, a clenched fist can't talk. Like
money can talk.
