They defeated the team of Charles Thompson and Erie Smith 63, 7-5. wmner m The Tuskegee 1976 Sum- mer Tennis Tournament was a succeuful one. Sponsored by the Tnake- gee City Recreation Depart- ment, the Tnakegee Tennis Club and Tuskegse Insti- tute, the tournament had over 60 participants. In the men's single event, the winner was William King, the No. I seeded player in the tournament. In this event, the best tennis was not reserved for the finals. In the opening rounds Melvin Minner and William King put on a dazzling display of tennis fundamentals. It was one of the best matches of the tournament, finally won by William King. II II The women's singles were won by Vanessa Bellamy who had to get past a talented array of women competitors. In the mixed doubles, Jackie and Ernie Montgomery defeated Shir- ley and William King 6-3, 7-5. In perhaps the biggest surprise of the tournament, William Harvey and Ernie Montgomery played almost flawless tennis to capture the men's doubles title. One of their most exciting matches was played in the semifinals against the top seeded duo of Willie Adger and William King. Harvey and Montgomery won this match 6-3, 6-3 before a large crowd at Logan Hall. III II I WILLIAM KING ...... .....

Mumford from the 1930's through the early '60s. Oh, Mumford had some great teams, he had three national championship squads, three consective years, 1948-49-50. The le- gendary caoch also won six Southwestern Atletic Con- ference titles and three co-titles. However, a young coach by the name of Charlie Bates, the present Southern mentor going into his fifth season is bringing that national prominence back to the Baton Rouge campus. Bates inherited a losing team in 1972 and has since then improves his record each year. The 1975 season was his best with a 9-3 mark and a 15-12 win over South Carolina State in the Pelican Bowl, putting the Jaquars in the national limelight. In the past four years Bates has gone from 2-7-1 in 1972, 6-4 in 1973, 8-3 in 1974 and of course that great 1975 season. Last season, the Jaquars stayed within the top 10 national black college rankings. Bates has com- pleted one phase of his rebuilding program and the upcoming '76 campaign will mark the second phase. "Yes, we are into a rebuilding year-the big question is, 'How fast can we rebuildT We were behind in nine games last year and that situation didn't allow us to play many subs," said Bates. In simple terms, the Jaquars have to put together an entire new squad. The defense has only three returnees, Noah John- son strong safety, Johnny and Andre Jones defensive ends. The offense was also wiped out by graduation with only two returning senior starters, Lorenzo Scott center, and halfback Larry Burnett. The offen- sive line is a real problem for Bates and his staff because there is lack of depth. So QB saekL Jack u will be making a rmt at AILAmerica honors this amm.

Top recruit Herbert Williams (Fr., 6-2, 190) from Baton Rouge's School Write: can By LEONARD HUFFMAN Extension Service Squash and Cucumbers: When Mother Nature is beating you, it's better to retreat, regroup and try again. Insect and disease problems on squash and cucumbers sometimes reach the point that control may be more trouble than the crop is worth. Late summer production of these crops is so risky that it's better to throw in the towel and plant another Vegetable on these rows. Chemical control of in- sects and diseases on squash and cucumbers late in the season is very difficult because the foliage often gets most of the chemical, and good coverage of the stems and runners is what's necessary to get rid of insects. The average home gardener does not have the equipment needed to do a thorough job. Squash and cucumbers are prone to get rootknot nematodes, too. When you pull plants to make way for the next crop, check the roots for nematode injury. This pest causes galls or enlargements on the roots. If you see any signs, fumigate these rows before planting a second crop. The lesser cornstalk borer is another problem that strikes late summer vega- table crops. This pest attacks the seedlings just below the soil line and bores into the plants, which wilt and die shortly thereafter. But by this time the worm has moved to a new feeding site. If your garden has lesser cornstalk borers, treat newly planted rows with three-fourths pound of two per cent Diazinon granules per 100 feet of row. Mix the granules lightly into the surface of the soil. Tomatoes: You can pre- vent blossom-end rot on tomatoes by taking two elementary steps. Lime and fertilize the crop according to soil test recommendations and mulch the tomato crop to insure a fairly even soil moisture supply. Blouom- end-rot is caused by drought stress and calcium deficien- cy. You can help correct this disorder by spraying plants with 4 teaspoons of calcium cloride per gallon of water. It normally takes about one quart of this mixture per plant to correct this condition. Commercial preparations of this chemical for use undiluted are nsually too expensive for home use. nc PI, No. i August 10, He pledges to work and efficient g to represent all clt (Pd. Pal.
