    SAY YOU SAW IT HERE...
Willie Walker is the sort of fellow who is
always in the "right" places at the "right"
time...He also has an exuberant personality that
bristles with enthusiasm when faced with a
strong challenge. Because of Walker's great
talents, abundant enthusiasm andoverwhelming
charm, the annual Charlotte Tip-Off Basketball
Tournament looms as a great attraction here the
weekend of December 3-4.
The Charlotte Chapter of the Johnson C. Smith
University Alumni Association has given Walker
a fjaee hand ^at selling the four-year old
touraament totne general public...And Willie is
a sure bet to excel beyond all expectations.
Walker and four potentially great basketball
teams give this tournament an aura of excite
ment. Anytime Johnson C. Smith, Barber-Scotia,
St. Augustine's and S.C. State get together on the
hardwood, the action is well worth the price of
admission...And then some!

—- ™ uut ι UOlllVO, dUUCllC
director at Morgan State, informs that the
football contest between Morgan and the Univer
sity of Maryland Eastern-Shore, originally sche
duled for October 9, will be played in Baltimore,
Md. this Saturday afternoon at Hughes Stadium
on the Morgan State campus.
Scoop Henderson, one of the nation's top public
relations officers, has some good words for
Charlotte native Joe Robinson, who is the head
basketball coach down at Fayetteville State
University.
According to "Scoop," Robinson had a fine
recruiting season and the Broncos should offer a
strong challenge in the race for the CIAA
championship.
Statistical-minded Henderson also informs
that no football team in the CIAA southern
division won its homecoming contest this season.
If you recall, Winston-Salem defeated Elizabeth
City, Fayetteville embarrassed J.C. Smith,
Winston-Salem stung Shaw, Virginia Union
downed Livingstone and Elizabeth City whipped

raines will add another notch to liis amazing
ecord as one of the winningest coaches in
basketball when he sends his Winston-Salem
Rams against Allen University in Whitaker Gym
on the WSSU campus Saturday night, November
27. A couple of close friends likely will be
paired-up in Durham Saturday night when North
Carolina Central hosts Livingstone College in its
Basketball opener. They are Ed Roper, who is
fighting for a starting berth with the Eagles, and
Everett Fulson, who has cinched a starting
assignment with the Blue Bears of Livingstone.
Roper, a sophomore, and Fulson, a freshman,
are both former Independence High School
sianaouis.
Talk about old rivalries! Howard and Hamp
ton have met 64 times on the football fields since
1908. Howard has won 32 games. Hampton has
been on top 31 times and one game ended in a
tie...And North Carolina Central's stunning
upset over North Carolina A&T gave the Eagles
20 triumphs in that time-honored series. A&T has
chalked 22 wins and there have been a couple of
ties. A&T will lose its top four linebackers to
graduation. Jerome Simmons, Lewis Alston, Joe
Crosby and Jearold Holland have carried the
Aggi^banner f<^r the final time on a gridiron.
; Rufs Seaton, the artful pitcher for Hampton
Institute, has established a new passing record
for the Pirates. The gifted young quarterback
has 1,193 yards through the airlanes this season,
snapping the old mark of 1,165. Remember Lary
Doby, the first Black baseball player in the
American League? Doby was given his outright
release as a coach with the Montreal Expos
recently.

ERNEST "WARHORSE" WILLIAMS
~~.Get* caught from behind
Ernest " Warhorse99 Williams
"The Spectacular Runner"
By Arnètte Barksdale
Post Sports Writer
Last year, those fans who
followed the Golden Bulls to
their 8-3 record probably
caught a glimpse of Earnest
"Warhouse" Williams, as he
evaded tackles enroute to his
excessive 1,200 yard total for
the season.
Most of those fans again
ventured to Memorial Stadi
um this year hoping that
number 32 would repeat the
spectacular running that boos
ted him to the leading rusher
in the CIAA, and led the Bulls
to a second place finish in the
conference.
But not only has the team,
which lost only three starters,
been a disappointment, but
the "Warhorse" has seemed
to have lost some of the
electricity he possessed last
season. Thus far he has gained
650 yards.
Several observers of the
Bulls blame the change in
Williams' running on the of
fensive line.
"The line is somewhat inex
perienced," said Williams, a
junior from Barnwell, S.C.
"Most of the offensive linemen
have never started before."
Williams added that the a
verage size of the line is too
small compared to most col
leges.
"It's not that the offensive
line isn't blocking, it's just
that most of them are too
small to really be effective
enough in executing plays,"
he said.
WBTV To Televise
UNCC-Tennessee Game
UTDftT ma 1Τ 4L - I tiin an/I P/wiwîrt
ketball game between UNCC's
"Forty-Niners" and the Uni
versity of Tennessee's "Volun
teers," Saturday, December
4th beginning at 7:55 p.m.
from Knox ville, Tennessee.
WBTV's production crew will
utilize the Jefferson Produc
tion Mobile Unit to televise the
game, which will be seen
exclusively on Channel 3.
Sports Director Jim Thacker
will provide the play-by-play.
Lee Rose's "Mean Green"
team had a spectacular sea
son last year, finishing second
to Kentucky in the N.I.T. Four
starters will be back this year,
including Charlottean Lew
Massey^ielvii^Vatkins^ie
bread" Maxwell, who was
named the Most Valuable
Player in the N.I.T.
The Tennessee "Volun
teers," coached by one of
America's outstanding defen
sive coaches, Ray Mears, is
rated second to Kentucky in
pre-season rankings for the
Southeastern Conference. One
of their great pluses is Ernie
Grunfeld, U.S. Olympic player
and Ail-American candidate.
Bernard King, the other half
of the team's 1-2 punch, is not
eligible to play in this game.
This first meeting between
these two exciting teams will
be a very strong early season
test for both clubs.
Speaking on the coaching
staff Williams said that he
believes the coaches have ta
lent and don't know how to use
it. "For instance," he said, "I
think some of the defensive
linemen have good qualities
for playing on the offense
line."
Then the 510" 185, Physical
Education major commented
that there's the problem of
everybody keying on him be
cause of his total yardage last
year.
"We've played some teams
that have defensive players
whose sole responsibility is to
make sure I don't break
loose," Warhourse explained.
Despite the odds, though,
"Warhorse" has managed to
stay injury free and has so far
run seven touchdowns with his
4:4 spree in the 40.
"A lot of people probably
picked us to win the confer
ence title this year," Williams
said, "but when we lost that
second game of the season to
Virginia Union, I think the
team's moral just went
down."
When asked why he chose
JCSU to further his education
and continue in the sport,
Williams said, "1 had offers
from several schools but for
some reason I just chose
Smith. 1 also wanted to go to a
predominately Black school."
When he first walked on the
Bull's practice field "War
horse" did so without a scho
larship of any kind. Now he is
on full scholarship.
The nickname "Warhorse"
was tagged to Williams be
cause the mascot of his high
school was "Warhorses."
