A thought to remember during the coming
football campaign is that - in the end - it is
usually the healthy teams that win titles!
Coach Eddie McGirt will meet the 1976
candidates for the Johnson C. Smith University
football team Sunday, August 22. Practice will
begin the following day at 5:45 a.m. The veteran
mentor will send his players through two
workouts daily through August 27. His first
scrimmage is set for Saturday, August 28. The
Blue-Gold Game will be staged at 9 a.m.
Saturday, Septimber 4. The Golden Bulls will
open the campaign against Lenoir Rhyne at
Memorial Stadium the next Saturday.
' Two Charlotte golfers played well in the 12th
Winston Lake Pro-Am Golf Tournament recent
ly. Alvin Grier finished in a three-way tie for
second place with 143. John Crawford shot 146 to'
finish fifth. Grier collected $350. Chuck Thorpe,
former assistant pro at Winston Lake, captured
the event with a 36 hole score of 139.
The rumbling you hear coming from a
northwesternly direction is that of the Winston
Salem State University supporters, who are
shouting loud and clear that their beloved Rams

the Orange Bowl in Miami, will pit the Fighting
Wildcats against Texas Southern on September

that Ali caught a left hook in the fine print of his
contract with promoter Bob Arum and his Top

Arum failed to produce the money necessary to
fulfill the announced guarantee. He promoted
the Ali-Dunn fight, also.
Ray McDougal will call out his football
Broncos of Fayetteville State University Mon
day, August 9. He expects 90 candidates for the
opening session.
