September 5th. Baker. the Charlotte, N.C., driver who won the Firecracker 400 in the Wood Brothers’ Ford, will be seeking his second Southern 500 triumph on the 1.366-mile oval that the drivers say is “too tough to tame.” The Southern 500, “The Granddaddy of Stock Car Racing” and the most important race on the second half of the WinstonCup schedule, gets the green flag at noon on Labor Day and culminates a great weekend tripleheader at Darlington. It starts with the Komfort Koach 150 NASCAR Darl- ington Dash Series race at 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 3rd. Then comes the Darlington 250 NASCAR Winston Racing Series event for Budweiser Late Model Sportsman division drivers on Sunday. September 4th. And it concludes with the Southern 500, the oldest superspeedway race in stock car racing.

New Year’s Eve: When a wife sits up till twelve for the New Year to come in...and till four for her husband to come in. There was a sale on nylon stockings and a tremendous line formed at the counter. One man was standing in line for an hour and making no headway. He kept being pushed and shoved farther and farther back. He finally got mad and began to push and claw his way forward. ‘“Can’t you act like a gentleman?” asked one of the customers. “I’ve been acting like a gentleman for an hour,” he replied. “Now I’m going to act like a lady.” The lawyer was advising his pretty client. “When we go into court I want you to wear a short skirt.” But they’re not in style,” she protested. “Do you wdant to be acquit- ted?” asked the lawyer. “Or do you want to be in style?” The gossip reported to the millionaire on the activities of his spouse. “While you were away I saw a tall dark man kissing your wife.” Women are the quickest to learn the three R’s.

Marriage may be the real road to happiness, but there are a lot of good side trails. Well, enough of that, uh. I'll try and do my best at picking the prep pigskin games Friday night. I usually get off to a slow start, then PICK UP STEAM! The big game in the Gaston County area tonight is Ashbrook at South Point. Ashbrook mov- ed the football against East Gaston last Friday. It was just a case of the Green Wave not be- ing able to stop the Warriors and their new wishbone attack. South Point has an inex- perienced team that may well get things going later. But later is not now. The pick is for an Ashbrook victory, 20-7. And looking at the other games, here’s how I see them: Shelby 20, Hunter Huss 7; Crest 24, Lincolnton 14; Kings Moun- tain 26, Burns 6 (the Moun- taineers have a terrific backfield); East Rutherford 20, Burns 6; North Gaston 14, Bessemer City 6; Cherryville 16, Charlotte Latin 10. See you next week. Go out and cheer for your favorite foot- ball team Friday night. They need your support. GOOD ONLY AT KFC STORES LISTED BELOW entucky Fried Chicken.

UNC, Maryland, Duke From Page 1-B A LOOK AT THE ACC: ACC football over the past several years has become more interesting to me than ACC basketball. The football programs at most conference schools have improved by leaps and bounds. There are two predictions on ACC footblal that I guarantee will come true. Clemson will not win the conference, nor will be Tigers play on television. North Carolina should have the league’s best running attack with Ethan Horton and Tyrone Anthony returning. Kings Mountain’s Kevin Mack should have his best year at Clemson, and even though Clemson games will not count in the conference standings, the Tigers will beat most of the ACC teams. Duke quarterback Ben Bennett should be a first-round draft pick and if new coach Steve Sloan can develop a defense to hold the other teams to under three touchdowns a game, the Blue Devils could win the ACC. Quickly picking the finish: 1. North Carolina. 2. Maryland. 3. Duke. 4. Virginia. 5. Georgia Tech. 6. N.C. State. 7. Wake Forest.
