' Congress has already made our
position on involvement in
Angola clear with the passage of
the Tunney amendment which
prohibits further U. S. military
involvement in that country.
The hiring or recruiting of U. S.
mercenaries by CORE is in
violation of U. S. law and
Rangel, who termed the
CORE recruitment "a divisive,
unwise action that threatens to
prolong the fighting and
bloodshed in Angola" said that
the failure of the Ford
Administration to take any
action against CORE'S activities
' raises the question of U. S.
government support of CORE'S
mercenary recruitment efforts".
I call upon the administration to
join me in denouncing this
activity, Rangel concluded.
Dr. Lerov Walker, former
track coach of North Carolina
Central University, along with
three others, was inducted into
die North Carolina Sports Hall
of Fame. The event marked the
thirteenth annual induction
ceremony for the occassion. The
other inductees were Harlem
Lemon; baseball star, Buddy
Lewis, and former Duke
University basketball coach, Vic

In a letter to Attorney
General Levi, Congressman

appalled by what appears to be a
public flaunting of U. S.law by
Roy Innis." While Innis

"As you are aware," he said,

coached national teams both
from the United States and
abroad as well as five foreign

on with Walker's numerous

two other hall of fame
inductions. It almost appears
that Walker was overqualified
for last Tuesdays induction in
the sense that he was ready for
the honor a long time ago before
now. Afterwards, one spectator
shook his head saying, "When
you're black, you've got to be
better than better."
There is no doubt that the

not been fairly afforded the
black coaches. Clearly there are

COINS AND CAllUUt
ffiffiiiS; By HERMAN MATHEWS
(SING TO THE TUNE OF LONDON BRIDGE)
Are you going
to the MEAC, MEAC, MEAC
oh, are you going
to the MEAC, or
will I see you in Hampton?
The Fifth Annual Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC)
Basketball Tournament will be held at the Greensboro Coliseum,
in Greensboro, February 26-28. Before one goes flailing at the
nearest ticket booth, he or she should note that an equally
attractive event, the 31st Annual Central Intercollegiate Athletic
Association (CIAA) Basketball Tournament, will be staged during
the same weekend in Hampton, Virginia, at the Hampton
Of course, many of us have succumbed to the fact of both
tourneys being held simultaneously. Yet, the late hour blues set
in when I have to finally choose between seeing North Carolina
A&T, Wintson-Salem State, Morgan State, or Norfolk State wrap
up their magnificent seasons. To see them all in one tournament
would be more than ideal, it would be a REAL pleasure. A
second choice would be to view both tourneys at different times,
which doesn't sound like a bad idea, but....?The last alternative
would be for the tournaments to be held, at least, whether at the
same time or not.
How the MEAC and CIAA tournaments will continue to fare
while being staged at the same time in different places is anyone's'
guess. Someone was guessing very seriously last year when it
proposed to hold a combined CIAA-MEAC basketball
tournament in Greensboro this February. It was reported that
plans were being made Oast year) for each of the two conference
to bring their four top teams to Greensboro for a super
tournament. Such an event was to draw all of the vital factors
into a neat economic package. Attracting fans was marked off as
the least important obstacle to be faced.
Most optimistically, the proposed CIAA-MEAC venture led
some observers to feel that a rich television pact could be possibly
obtained, if the tournament achieved the success envisioned. It
was also speculated that the super tourney champs would be
more readily considered for major tournaments.
What was planned and what is to be are two different things.
The fans were ready and the markets were too. (CIAA-MEAC
schools are located in 6 of top 100 markets.and are nearenough
to influence more than ten others, such as New York,
Philadelphia, Atlanta, Greenville, S. C.: and Charleston). Who
knows when the NCAA is ready?But, we all know that those
with the authority to put a CIAA-MEAC tournament together,
ARE NOT READY.
Well, I am looking forward to enjoying one of the
tournaments. I cannot be in two different locations at one time,
and I know of no one who can. It does seem that some people
think that such a thing is possible, or maybe the thought never
has been considered by them. To my fellow CIAA-MEAC fans, I
will see you there where?
