Gunter Paces Mack in flvpr Tiffpre HP W By JOHN STAMM Clarion-Ledger Sports Writer ' T.Y. Gunter enjoyed the Jackson Mack Truckers 5-0 victory over the Jackson Tigers probably more than the rest of his teammates . Gunter, mired in a slump since mid-season of the collegiate season at Ole Miss and hitting only .111 for the Truckers, back snapped to life Tuesday night at Legion Field with three hits. "I didn't hit the ball too well tonight," Gunter said somewhat shyly. "I think I'm hitting the ball better but I was pretty lucky." Gunter's line single to left in the fifth broke open a pitching duel between the Tigers' Winston Madison and Harvey Luby of the Truckers. Designated hitter Ken Fisher led off the inning with a single to left and first baseman Joe McCaskill was walked next by Madison. Robert Street initiated the scoring with a timely double to left scoring both Fisher and McCaskill for a 2-0 lead. Gunter's single followed after John Graham popped out, to bring Street in to score the third run of the frame. The Truckers added insurance runs in the seventh on a leadoff double by McCaskill, who scored on an error and Gunter's single scoring Graham, who walked. Luby and relief ace Doug Grantham completely stymied the Tigers' bats, holding them to only two hits and striking out 17 in the process, Luby worked the first 523 innings and fammed 10 before leaving after walking Willie Lloyd with two out. "His arm kinda tightened up," Trucker coach Willis Steenhuis said. "We only planned on having him go six innings anyway because we wanted to keep Doug sharp. And sharp he was, fanning seven over the last3-l3 and allowing only one hit. In fact, over 16-23 so far this season Grantham has yet to be scored upon and has fanned 30 over the span. "We depend upon him," Steenhuis added. As part of the Jackson May Oilers round-robin tournament, the Truckers and Tigers meet Thursday night at 8 p.m. at Legion Field. The May Oilers kick off the tournament with a 6 p.m. date against the Homestead Greys. Three games are scheduled Saturday and the finale between the Oilers and Truckers is set for Sunday at 3 p.m. Tigers 000 000 OOO -0 2 1 Mack Truckers (KM 030 20X - 5 7 0 Madison and Owen.

"I really didn't know until recently that coach Vaught was interested in remaining past retirement age," said Cooper, "But I'm glad he is." With the toughest schedule in Ole Miss history awaiting the Rebels, Cooper will be glad to get any help he can from Vaught who served as head coach of the Red and Blue for 25 seasons since 1947 interrupted for two campaigns by Billy Kinard. In another development regarding Ole Miss on a "non-athletic" level, it was reported Tuesday Bruiser Kinard has been named Assistant Dean of Student Personnel. It is the first official duty given Kinard since he was fired along with younger brother Billy on Sept. 25, and ended speculation about his future at Ole Miss. Kinard, the most awarded gridder in Ole Miss history, had a contract as Athletic Director which was to run until 1977, and although "out," still expressed a desire to be "in." "I've got a contract and I still want to remain in some capacity in the athletic department," Bruiser stated on occasion, "But I won't accept just any job that's offered." Kinard was in Spain Tuesday and unavailable for comment, but according to Ole Miss Chancellor Dr. Porter Fortune, he had changed his mind. "I spoke with Bruiser and he is happy with the position," said Fortune, "And we (Ole Miss) are happy to be getting his services restarted." It is essentially a change in position for Kinard according to Fortune and he will retain his present contract and salary. There has been speculation too on the unexpired contract of Billy Kinard that Ole Miss is paying at the rate of approximately $28,000 annually, and it was learned f ' ""HP" " " ' "''As, Cleveland Browns Put Leroy Kelly On Waivers 'BRUISER' KINARD ... New Rebel Duties that the College Board through the urging of the state Attorney General's Officehas requested Ole Miss to contact Kinard and verify his position with the Green Bay Packers. According to sources, a possible problem exists since Kinard's contract wasn't terminated when he accepted a job with the NFL team in January. CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Browns said Tuesday they have asked waivers on running back Leroy Kelly. The 10-year veteran had announced plans to retire after last season but later said he wanted to continue playing. The Browns' player personnel director, Bob Nussbaumer, said whatever happens, Kelly won't be with the Browns this year. Nussbaumer said the Browns have been contacted by several clubs interested in Kelly. Confederate Yankee had raced seven times coming into the Kentucky Derby and was always in the money. In the Derby he finished 12th in the field of 23. Kelly was overshadowed by Jim Brown during his early years with the Browns. His rushing yardage totaled more than 1,100 yards three straight years from 1966 to 1968, but in recent years he has been hampered by knee injuries.
