' Hooks: NCAA Pi
By RUTH ELL HOWARD
Staff Writer '
NAACP Executive Director Benjamin Hooks said
recently that the organization may* lake legal action
against a National Collegiate Athletic Association Division
I (NCAA) ruling that will require college athletes to
score at least 700 on the Scholastic Aptitude Test in 1986.
Almost 50 percent of blacks who take the SAT score
below 700, a fact that prompted Hooks to question the
"Things can be race-neutral in their effect, yet, they
may be racist policies/' Hooks said during a visit to
Winston-Salem two weeks ago to speak at the NAACP
Freedom Fund Banquet.
Condemning what he called a "death penalty" clause,
Hooks questioned the NCAA's motives for enacting the
legislation and said the NAACP will consult with its
lawyers on the matter.
Hooks also criticized violence involving police and
blacks in Miami, where the shooting of a young black
man by a white policeman led recently to marches and

The Rev. Ellis C. Austin said this week that the deacon
board at Dreamland Park Baptist Church on Dunbar
Street has voted to remove him as pastor of the church.
Austin said he does not want to elaborate on the
specific reasons he was asked to leave the church but says
"they didn't need my services and I didn't need theirs."
He says further that the church is in a "big mess now"
and that members of the church are "still in an uproar."
According to Austin, the deacons decided among
themselves, without a full congregation vote, to remove
him as the pastor. On Sunday, Jan. 16, he said, they locked
the church doors.
Austin added that he is not sure specifically why he was
asked to leave, but noted that "it all boils down to personality
"As I see it, they couldn't get along with me. They
wanted to run the church," Austin says. "The deacon

The trouble between Austin and the deacon board at
Dreamland Park Baptist Church has been brewing for
some time, Austin Says, noting that he has been asked to
leave once before. Both times, Austin says, "the deacon
board decided 1 should leave and not the full congregation.*'
? "I don't see how they (the deacon board) can vote me
out without a full church vote," he says. But Austin says
the church has never had a constitution, so he is not sure
what the rules of the church are.

said. "Yet, we can understand how some people are
driven to the extremity of their wants and they may react
But he added that the organization (4will not change
our position that violence is not the answer."

Hooks also reported that progress in the ' 'Operation

blacks have equal employment in on-the-screen and
behind-the-scenes positions should be concluded by the
end of 1983.
The NAACP in 1981 drew up a 4'white list" of movies
that it felt did not employ adequate numbers of blacks

him but they "voted to go with the pastor. I didn t split it

4'Many of the members felt that they had no say-so.
This is where the conflict comes in. They felt like they
didn't wanna go back."
"Right now, things are pretty tough, but I intend to
survive," Austin says. The church offered Austin a salary
for 90 days but he says he declined.
"It's not fair to the people to get their money and give
it to me when they didn't have a vote to give it to me," he
Fred Montgomery, chairman of Dreamland Park Bap

did ask Austin to leave the church but "would not like tc

Montgomery says he does not want to speak for th<

Montgomery also says he does not wish to comment 01
any of the allegations against Austin and says, "I don'

The board does not have anything against the Rev
Austin. We have no hard feeling against him."

? Carver Avenges Loss
With Convincing Win
By EDWARD HILL JR.
The script was written and the stage was set for the
long-awaited rematch between Carver and Atkins, two
powers in the 9-10 Division.
The last time these two met, it ended with Atkins on
That contest was a spinetingler, and many expected
this one to be a carbon copy. The fact that a share of
first-place in the division was on the line gave the game
The only problem was that Carvei;)s Brian Howard and
his teammates forgot to follow the script.
The 6-5 freshman put on what sportswriters like to
refer to as a "clinic" and personally led his team to a convincing
67-55 victory. But final scores are virtually meaningless
when these two clash, whether it's in football,
marbles, ping pong or tiddlywinks.
After nearly two minutes without either team scoring a
basket, Howard finally broke the ice with a short tur
naround in the lane that set the tone. From that point on,
it was sit back and enjoy the action.
The "breathing-room-only" crowd that packed the
Carver gym and lined up against the walls was on a rollercoaster
ride through much of a first quarter that featured
