"We don't need just one good quarterback. We need at least two to make that position competitive next year," commented Towers after the Salukia ended the season last Saturday with a 41-7 decision over Southwest Missouri State. The victory gave SIU a 5-5 record for 1969. First stop for Towers was Kansas and a look at a couple of junior college quarterbacks. "I'D also be searching for somebody who can catch the football," Towers said. Fight set HALIFAX, N.S.

Teens on Wheels By Michael Lamm Decal remover will fake off racing stripes w 1 Vt - T 1 - 4 ATA I La J lU." Dear Mike: I have a 1960 British Ford Anglia 015-E. I recently had the clutch cover assembly, clutch disc, and release bearing replaced. The car now runs fine except on initial takeoff. Whenever I put the car in low or reverse, as I let out the clutch, I get a metal-to-metal rasping sound. This noise goes away once I let up on the pedal and the car is underway. The rest of the gears shift perfectly. The mechanic who overhauled the clutch took it down a second time and reexamined it, but everything looked okay. Any ideas? RASPER Dear Rasp: Possibly the clutch disc was put in back ward. Possibly you've got the wrong throw-out bearing, or maybe it wasn't put in right. Have any readers had similar experiences? Dear Mike: In 1956, I bought a new Chevrolet and have used it only for city driving. The car will soon have 19,000 miles on it. In all this time, I have never driven over 40 m.p.h. I would now like to give the car to my son, but my garageman tells me it will fall apart if it's driven at high speed. My question is this: Can anything be done to assure this car's continued smooth, safe, reliable running? GRANNY Dear Gran: There's no reason your Chevy should fall apart, exactly, but it might be a little stiff in the joints. If I were getting this car, here's what I'd do: 1) Have it checked by a diagnostic center, same as any used car purchase; 2) take it easy at first. But if you've had the car serviced regularly and have taken good care of it, there s no reason why it shouldn't be just fine. Dear Mike: Not long ago you asked for reader suggestions regarding the removal of racing stripes from car hoods, trunks, etc. Rubber-cement thinner should do the trick. You can trickle this under the striping after lifting a tiny edge. Try it first in an inconspicuous spot to be sure it doesn't raise the paint. Also realize that if the stripe has been stuck to the car for any length of time, it's possible that the sun has faded the nearby paint, so actually you'll never really remove the stripe. Anyway, good luck, Stuck. HELPFUL Dear Helpful: Thanks, Yet a other reader suggested something called Decal Remover, sold at dime stores. Dear Mike: Blue smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe doesn't necessarily mean bad rings or worn valve guides (you recently suspected valve guides in a reader's car). I have a 1961 Plymouth 318 that also smoked blue. I found though, that the oil-return holes under my rocker covers were plugged. This made tiny amounts of oil drain down the valve stems into the exhaust system. I poked out these holes with a coat hanger, and the engine hasn't smoked since. How 'bout that? CURED Dear Cured: Good of you to write. Thanks. (You can write to Mike Lamm at Room 601, 50 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, N.
