3D -July 27,1975* Sunday C»rlei.(w, Richmond Formidable Foe? Not many West Virginia U. football fans can justify the long series of games Red Brown booked with the U. of Richmond Spiders when he was athletic director at WVU. If the Mountaineers were to "beef up" their schedules -- as they have done in recent years -- then Richmond had no right to be there. Indeed, many of them felt that if they could play the Spiders, then they also could play Marshall. But, it's a foregone conclusion now that WVU and Marshall will never meet. But the Mountaineers will continue to play Richmond. And in these next few years maybe Richmond, itself,may justify being on the WVU schedule. At any rate, it can be said that the Spi- Junior Samples Here for Charlies Brown Harrah ders are trying to measure up by (1) leaving the Southern Conference and (2) trying to go big-time by booking some mighty formidable opponents. U.R. athletic director Clyde Biggers announced the other day that the Spiders, in'leaving the Southern Conference in June, would embark on a grid schedule that would include such formidable opposition as Wisconsin, Wyoming, Duke, North Carolina, Maryland, and, of course, the old standby -- West Virginia, and Virginia Tech. "We are going to play the type of opposition that the people in the Richmond area will want to see in City Stadium," said Biggers. Only hitch is that City Stadium is rather small (18,000) and is terribly run down. If the Spiders are thinking big time, they had better start with a new stadium. It is because of the stadium problem that WVU will be meeting the Spiders the next three seasons in Morgantown. By the time the Mountaineers return to Richmond in 1979, there is reason to believe that something will be done to correct the stadium problem... Let us hope so. . . Junior Samples Hee Haw Star Sears "Fanaers Night' 1 with special guest Junior Samples from television's Hee- Haw, will be held at \Yatt Powell Park Saturday, Aug. 2. when the Charleston Charlies take on the Syracuse Ciiiefs. All fans wearing bib overalls are eligible to join Samples on the field in 2. pre-game show at 7 p.m. Game time is 7:30 p.m. Cow milking, greased pig, wheel barrow race and barefoot races will be held with winners receiving prizes. Each fan will receive a photograph of Samples when entering the park. During the game he will visit with the fans and sign autographs. Samples is a resident of Cummings, Ga. He is a self proclaimed "World's Biggest Liar" for more reasons than one. He weighs 300 pounds which prevents some arguments, but says, "All the Samples lie a little, but I'm the only one that ever got paid for it." A sawmill worker most of his life, Samples terms fishing and talking as his main interests. He and his wife, Grace, have six children.

GRASS CATCHER with each mower SOLD STEEL BELTED SILENT GUARD 35,000 Mile Warranty Three-Umpire Crews Will Return Carl Steinfeldt, g.m. of the Charlies, says the league will return to the three-umpiring team next season. He says he has enough support from the other directors to vote out the present two-umpire crew. With three umps, the league's expenses will go up around $20,000 but Steinfeldt, as well as a majority of the others, feels it is worth this amount to have three umps again. "The league is well fixed financially now," said the Charlie g.m. who explains that the Honolulu "world championships" in 1972 had put the league in the red so far it is just now getting back on its financial feet. At the moment, Steinfeldt and his assistant, Regis Cole, are busy trying to get the ball park back together for the All-Star game here Aug. 18. Some 25 burned out lights will be replaced, the Scoreboard will be working in top form for the first time this year, and some other things will be done to whip the park into shape. The city had said something about panelling the pressbox walls before the All-Star but we understand this idea has been abandoned, probably because of the cost.. . I 0ld Timers' Will Be At It Again That annual baseball "classic" -the Old Timers' game is coming up Saturday, Aug. 2, at Watt Powell Park before the Charlies' play Syracuse. Game time is 4 p.m. A dinner will follow at the Bonanza. . . Martha Thornhill, the Charleston girl, teamed with Ted Russell, Phoenix stockbroker, to win the Arizona State Closed mixed-doubles tennis championship recently. They won the title match in straight sets of 6-4, 6-4. Martha, who is now the teaching pro at the Foothills Tennis and Swim Club in Phoenix, will be coming home in August to visit friends and relatives here. A real sweet gal, is Marni... In addition to the annual WVU Alumni golf tournament this year, to be held at Lakeshore Country Club in Morgantown Friday, Aug. 15, there will be an Alumni tennis tournament at the same time. And who else but Robert N. "Red" Brown will serve as chairman of the event? Dyke Raese, golf chairman, reminds that all reservations for the tourney and hotel space must be in by Aug. 10... Wedding bells will be ringing for Doug Huff, Wheeling Intelligencer sports scribe, on Sept. 20. He will marry -his long-time sweetheart, Jeannie Fox who is, just that, a sweetheart. .. Tennis magazine has named Australians Rod Laver and Margaret Court top players of the decade (1965-75) Ken Rosewall and Billy Jean King were the No. 2 selections . . . Dennis Harrah, the Miami (Fla.) U. Ail-American tackle from Charleston Stonewall Jackson, will play against the Pitt Steelers in the College All-Star game in Chicago Aug. 1. .. As far as we know, he's the first Charleston boy to play in this game. Denny was drafted by the L. A. Rams . . . ROUNDUP Jones Ties 100-Meter Record; Bryant Fights 'Rozelle Rule' The Associated Press Reggie Jones, a 21-year-old sprinter from Saginaw, Mich., equalled the world record for the 100-meter dash with a 9.9 second clocking at a track meet in Boston Saturday. Finishing behind Jones were Charlie Wells, at 10.0, and Houston McTear, co- holder of the world record for 100-yards. Shaw Eyes Medal Tim Shaw, his third gold medal taken away because of a disqualification, went after No. 3 again Saturday night on the next-to-last day of the World Aquatics Championships at Cali, Columbia. Shaw swam third leg on the ill-fated men's 800-meter freestyle relay, which set an apparent world record but was disqualified from both the new mark and the gold medal because Bruce Furniss left the starting blocks before Shaw touched the wall. Saturday night he was mining gold by himself in the 1,500-meter event. Bryant Fights Trade The attorney for Cullen Bryant said Saturday he will go to court if necessary to stop "National Football League Commissioner Pete Rozell from ordering the running back sent from Los Angeles to the Detroit Lions. Bryant was ordered to Detroit in a "Rozelle Rule" move by the commission: er for Ron Jessie, the wide receiver who played out his option with the Lions and signed with the Rams as a free agent last month. Bell Stays Quiet The Philadelphia Bell of the World Football League insists that Willie Wood is just one of many people being considered as the successor to former coach Ron Waller, but sources close to the team vsay Wood will beWfered the job. f p Grundy Wins Stakes Grundy, the winner of the English and Irish derbies, took the lead with about 300 yards left Saturday and then outdueled Bustino to win the fastest King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes ever run. Killer On Disabled List Detroit Tiger relief ace John Killer was placed on the 21-day disabled list Saturday because of an injury suffered in Friday night's 4-3 win over the Cleveland Indians. Killer, who left the game in the ninth inning after complaining of a twinge following a pitch, was examined at Ford Hospital, and doctors said the left-handed star pulled a muscle in the back of his upper left arm. Usai Improved Doctors said Saturday that Italian fighter Giancario Usai might be able to leave the hospital today after the beating he absorbed in a title bout against European lightweight champion Ken Buchanan of Scotland. Usai was taken to a hospital Friday night with a possible brain concussion. Doctors said he was much improved and that his brain was not affected. Spain Leads Davis Cup Spain's Juan Gisbert and Manuel Or- antes teamed for a 6-4,6-3,6-1 victory over Bjorn Borg and Ove Bengston of Sweden Saturday, giving the Spaniards a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five European Zone Group A final Davis Cup Tennis series. Gullett Awatts Word Cincinnati Reds Pitcher Don Gullett, sidelined six weeks with a broken thumb, said he expects to know by Wednesday when he can resume pitching. The 24-year-old left-hander, who was off to the best start of his career with a 9-3 record, said he will check with physicians for approval to begin throwing on the sideline* L BELT ' CORD PLY · 2 Tough Steel Cord Belts for Strength and Durability.
