head as he opened the door to Martin Luther King
To open the third annual one-on-one, he had lured
Alderman Larry Little and assistant recreation director
Thomas Gavin to the basketball court.
Shedding their ties and coats, the two former jocks
returned to their days of glory as they joked with each
other before the match began. The seriousness was still
there, however; for once you are an athlete the will to win
and the competitive spirit never fade.
Gavin had already worked up a sweat by 6:00, having
| beaten a challenger easily. Little, who had a Board of
u Aldermen's meeting at 7:30 p.m., had arrived in such a
L hurry that he left his headlights on outside as he worked
hard in the gym searching for the magic that made him
one of the city's finest players in the late '60's. ?
