Hot Bulls Tangle
With Barber-Scotia
By Nathaniel Myers
Post Staff Writer
Coach Jerry Fitch will lead
his Golden Bulls of Johnson C.
Smith into this weekends Tip
Off Tournament with all eyes
on the Championship Tro
phy The Golden Bulls go into
the tournament, which is be
ing played at Charlotte's Park
Center, with a 2-1 record.
Their only lost coming last
weekend at the hands of Le
noir-Rhyne College, 83-82. It
was a last second lost in a well
played game But the Bulls
have two very impressive
wins under their belt to date, a
102-82 win over Belmont Ab
bey and a 115-78 victory over
arch-rival Barber-Scotia.
Friday night at 9 the Golden
Bulls go up against defending
Tip-Off Tournament Cham
pion and Arch-Rival Barber
Scotia College of Concord. The
action starts at 7 with St.
Augustine College going a
gainst Allen University of Co
lumbia, S.C.
Even thnuph Fi»rh'« OnlHon
Bulls have defeated Barber
Scotia soundly already this
season, Scotia's Assistant
Coach John Thomas says “we
will be ready come Friday
night." “Johnson C. Smith is
our rival and our boys will be
up for the game." “There is
never a problem getting up for
Smith" said Thomas. He also
added that Reggie Williams
should be ready, “Reggie has
been plagued by a injured
knee that has been giving him
, problems." The big 6'9” Se
nior from Atlanta, Ga. has
been badly missed by Barber
Scotia this season. Last season
Reggie shot 50 percent from
the floor and 74 percent from
the free throw line with 492
rebounds, a lofty 17.6 average
per game, while adding 12
points per contest.
So far this season (thru Dec.
12) Reggie has played in only
three games scoring 10 points,
and collecting only seven re
bounds. Thomas said “with
Reggie hurt, we are playing a
lot of freshmen.” "It’s just a
. matter of finding the right
combinations." Thomas fault
ed last weekend loss to the
Golden Bulls on just being cold
from the floor and “rushing
things,” (not waiting to get
into our patterns). Anyway
Thomas assures us a good
defense of the title from the
Sabers of Barber-Scotia.”
On the other hand Coach
Fitch and his Golden Bulls are
noi taking the Sabres ngntly,
even though Barber-Scotia
has a record of 1 win and 5
losses. "We will be working
jusf as hard if they were 5-1”
says Fitch.
The Bulls feel they have the
power to take this years tour
nament. Herb Entzminger
leads the team in scoring with
a 26.1 average. Followed by
playmaker Sonny Proctor
with a 16 point per-game
average Charles Stewert is
shooting at a 15.1 clip. The
Bulls are also blessed with
balance scoring with Char
lotte’s William “Duke” Harris
is chipping in 14 points a game
and the fifth starter, Robert
Terry is averaging 10 points
per contest.
The Golden Bulls are exper
ienced, quick and talented.
One observer said last week
en4-during the WBTV Caro
lina Qassic that “Johnson C.
Smith Golden Bulls are so fast
that they could cut off the
lights and be in bed before it
gets dark. " Any way the Bulls
do look impressive and will be
hard to beat on anybody's
court this year.
On Saturday the losers play
at 7 and Friday night’s win
ners will play afterwards for
the coveted title.

Mr Charles R.B,
Why do stylist always
change hairstyles'1
ANSWER: Customers
come to a stylist to take
advantage of their skill,
training and experience
in designing hair to fit
their features, bone
structure, hair weight
and length; also living
and working conditions,
social activities and en
vironment To do this
means you must change
the style. You can not
change and remain the
same To better a condi
tion means to change it

Dear Members & Friends:,/
Have you ever stopped to think that you can’t
serve God too much? Sometimes, we may feel
that you are being called to service too much, but
remember with all the different types of services
going on the Word of God is the most important
part of the service.
I’m to be in Richmond, VA. for a week, but the
Lord said for me to gather the saints together on
December 15th. There will be two services held
in the main auditorium. Time 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.
You are to fast from daybreak until 12 noon.
Prayer is very important. We must be praying
from 11 a.m. until 12 noon and the Word of God in
the 7 p.m. service. Elder Moore was very upset,
but I told him I had to obey the Holy Ghost. I will
lose a considerable amount of money by leaving
the revival early, but I must obey God. The Lord
is saying so many good things to me on this
Thursday, the 8th of December, as I write to you,
that I wish it was possible to share all of them
with you; but unfortunately it is not possible.
Everyone of you that will receive this letter you are to go out and invite
24 persons in your community to attend the 7 p.m. service, air of which
must be non-members of the Cathedral. INVITE ALL NATIONS TO
COME. Use your telephone, feet, and your car to get this message
across, for it is very important. Let me say to each of you again, that will
receive this letter that you must be present in both the 11 a.m. and the,7
p.m. service. No excuse will be accepted, your failure to attend will cut
off many good things God has enstore for you. Someone will say, “I
never get anything out of these services.” But, you must ask yourself the
question, “Do I really carry out what the man of God says?” Upon
receiving this letter repeat the following prayer 30 times, before next
WOE UNTO YOU if you fail to obey. But, everyone that will obey will be
lifted from oppression, depression, and burdens. If I asked you to bring a
certain amount of money and told you that you would be blessed for
doing so, many of you would do it. I am asking you to be obedient to this
letter, and watch God bless you for it. \
Many ot you wun good jods leei very secure with them, but except you
give God more time, than you have been giving - you are going to lose
everything. That goes for members and friends as well. The Bible
teaches us to obey them that have the rule over us (Heb. 13:7). There are
some of you that will not be able to get off your jobs for one of the
services depending on the time you go to work. But, don’t let that hinder
you from going through the consecration or attending the service at
which time you are not working. It is for the best that you attend both
There are three reasons most of you can’t receive the blessing from God
that you desire. They are: gossipping, deceitfulness, and forgetfulness
of God. Read your Bible Truth, you will see that you need to be covered
in the blood of Jesus. This is a warning, it is up to you to heed it.
Please, continue to pray much for me and my ministry, as I pray for you.
Until Thursday, December 15. 1977.
YoursTor the Master’s service,
Pastor Karl C. Cannon
