Kenneth Doherty (Left) Is Inducted Into Track Hall of Fame He Receives Certificate From Dr. Don Cohen (Center) and Frank Dolson HALL OF Former Miler Joie Ray? 82, Runs to Podium When Called By Danny Wells It was hot and humid during Saturday morning's induction ceremonies for 10 new members of the National Track and Field Hall of Fame on the state capitol grounds. .And for that reason, Robert Ray held an umbrella over his brother Joie's head to shield him from the hot sun as they sat at the main table on the capitol steps. Joie Ray earned his way into the Track Hall of Fame in the years 1915 through 1925 when he was America's predominant miler. Ray is 82 years old and may not be up to sitting in the heat for long spells. Thus the assist with the umbrella from his brother. But when his name was called after an ·introduction which cited all his accomplishments, Joie Ray RAN to the podium. It was one of many great and touching moments during one of the most impor- . tant days in the lives of the eight new hall of famers who were present and the families and friends of the two who are dead. DriE BECKMANN*tiie first athlete to be introduced, probably spoke for all the inductees when she said: "I feel like a young Joie Ray Touching Moment athlete with butterflies in my stomach." One of the most interesting talks was By Paul Wallace McCartney to Plav in Coaches' Game Charleston's Ron McCartney and two former West Virginia University football players will play for the East in Saturday's 16th annual Coaches All- America Game at 9 p.m. in Lubbock. Tex. McCartney was a star for Stonewall Jackson High School before playing his college ball at the University of Tennessee. He was recently drafted by the Los Angeles Rams. He will wear No. 57 and play defensive end. The two former Mountaineers are defensive back Charles Braswell and center Al Gluchoski. Braswell. who will wear No. 30, and Cluchoski, who will have No. 52. were two of W V U ' s main cogs in the Peach Bowl victory this past season. Frank Kush of Arizona State will coach the West squad. Navy's George Welsh will pilot the East team. McCartney Gluchoski given by Dr. J. Kenneth Doherty. an articulate man of 71 who has given his entire life to track and field as an athlete, coach, meet director and author. During a convincing lecture on the attributes of track and field. Doherty took issue with one of the best known quotes in sports which is credited to famed Green Bay Packer coach Vince Lombardi: "Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing." "Nonsense," said Doherty. "In track and field, personal development is more important than winning. Winning is not the end at all. It is a means to the development of the individual." Later in the morning, Forrest Towns, who gained Hall of Fame status as a hurdler in the 30s, disagreed with Doherty about the importance of winning, saying it nearly was the only thing. Which indicates the truth of Lombardi's quote wasn't settled Saturday and probably won't ever be. Doherty also noted that with the increasing violence in sports, track and field is "inherently nonviolent." He closed with this statement: "The real worth of any man is best judged by the degree of his adherence to rules that cannot be enforced." K E N N Y MOORE, a distance r u n n e r who writes for Sports Illustrated, gave an unemotional, yet touching talk about his friend Steve Prefontaine. lie hold e i g h t A m e r i c a n distance records when he was killed in a car wreck in 1975. "Ho touched us. infuriated us and challenged us." said Moore of "Pre." Steve's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Prefontaine, came from Oregon to attend the weekend ceremonies. Bob Hayes, who gained fame both as a sprinter and a professional football player, called his induction "an event I will cherish the rest of my life. If I could really tell you how I feel. 1 would be here all day." Other now members to the Hall of Fame who were present included Billy Mills. Hays Jones and Mae Faggs Starr. Another hall of famer. Charles Paddock, was killed in the World War II. He was represented at Saturday's induction by his two sons. Charles Paddock. ,Ir.. and Prisk Paddock M i k e Kniczck of Boston College and Parnell Dickinson of Mississippi Valley will be the East quarterbacks.
