Minister' Joseph Modupe John son will drive round the town with a local medicine man lo "persuade people he is on our side,' he told newsmen. The 221-pound minister hopes to give a needed boost to ticket sales for Ihe fight in Ibadan's Liberty Stadium. This is Nigeria's rainy season and when it rains in Nigeria it really rains. 'People aren't buying tickets because they think the fight will be washed out," the minister said 'Of course I don't believe in rain doctors myself but there are still a lot of Nigerians who do.' Johnson said it was customary for Nigerians to engage a rain doctor on the eve o! a wedding to make certain there was good weather for the ceremony. "I did it myself," he recalled. 'It still rained but at least guests could not blame me." There is * well remembered precedent for enlisting rain doc- ors said. Before the independence celebrations of 1960 the gov emment gave the DBA of Lagos, Adele Adenjii, $2,800 to distribule among them. The OBA is the Iradilional city chieftain. Princess Alexandra represented Britain's Queen Elizabeth the celebralions and we didn't want her to get wet," he said. Despile the rain docs she still got soaked and no one looked shimmer lhan the OBA," Johnson recalled. "It was the biggest blow to the superstition ever." What happed to the government money?

Somerville completed its sweep of Fall River 1Z-2 Saturday. * *• * Dartmouth Coach Bob Blackman Isn't a man who gives up ensily. Blackman's Big Green football learn gained an undefeated season last year and took the Ivy crown partly because of the coach's three-platoon system, * * + Then the college rules were changed to allow only two substitutes on fourth down or after the ball has changed hands. That, of course, ended Ihe platoon system. So sly Blackman is putting 13 men on hia first team. ¥ * * The new rule forbids our three platoon system of the un defeated 1962 campaign," he said today.

"One thing is certain," he continues, "our fans will be seeing a pro-lype offense Ihis year. Andy with Songin throwing often, our backs like Griffin and Meeks will be that much more effective when they do carry the ball," Delirium Takes Sanford Stakes SARATOGA SPRINGS - Delirium, owned by \he Greentree Stable, scored an impressive victory in the 50th running of Ihe $?5,000 added Sanford Stakes that Featured Monday's program al the Saratoga race course.

(AP)—The fact she is 6 feet, 2 inches tall isn't the only thing that will distinguish Miss North Carolina at the Miss America Pageant. Jeanne Swanner, 19, probably will be the only enlry who can boast a 37-point basketball scoring average. The tall and lovely Tar Hsel beauty put the high scoring average together in leading the Graham .High School learn to the Eastern 3-A Conference crown during the 1960-61 season. There will be no lalk ol frail femininily if this girl becomes Miss America. She's a Red Cross waler safety instructor, a lifeguard, plays a good tennis game and holds an associate umpire's certificate for Softball. Despite this, she's sweet and feminine. The talent which helped! her win the Tar Heel beauly crown has nothing to do with muscles—it was her ukulele-strumming and singing. But il's in basketball thai she has shined. She already stood 6 feet 2 when she was a freshman at Graham High—a -basketball natural.She quickly won a starter's berth and averaged 20 points that first school year. In her sophomore year her average rose to 30 points a season. Opposing teams began assigning two girls to guard her. Graham reached the finals of the conference tournament—and lost. Next year the tall beauly tossed points left and right. Graham had an 18-1 record and Jeanne was top scorer with her 37-point average. Three times she scored 49 points. In tournament play she scored 44 points twice, once in the championship game, "My favorite shots were a lay- up and a modified hook shot," says Jeanne. "You couldn't really call it a hook. It was just something I worked on myself." Jeanne played basketball for her sorority team the past two years at Auburn University. There were 13 teams in the league and she was selected on the all-star squad bolh years. Her sorority learn won the championship both years. Scott Defeated By Young Shomo NEW BEDFORD, Mass.

Craig Breedlove Seeks To Break His Own Record BONNEVILLE SALT FLATS, Utah, (AP) — Craig Breedlove thought today be could go even faster lhan he did Monday in his jet-powered car when he set a world record of 407.45 miles per hour. In fact he powered his car, "Spirit of America", to 428.37 m.p.h. on the first run. The second run, back over the same course on the western Utah salt flats, was at a 388.47 m.p.h. rat*. His average speed was a record 407.45 m.p.h. The old mark was 394.196 m.p.h. set on the Hat? in 1947 by the late Sir John Cobb of England. Breedlove, a one-time hot rod- der from Los Angeles, said he had been after the record ever since he began tinkering with cars when he was 14. That was four years after Cobb set the mark. Breedlove is 26. But Cobb's car was contentions! piston powered. The drive shaft was connected to the wheels. Breedlove's car is more like a jet airplane on wheels. In fact it is powered by a modified J-47 jet airplane engine. The wheels are not turned directly by the engine.
