High Point Enterprise, The (Newspaper) - June 15, 1976, High Point, North CarolinaJunior highs revisited several months ago the problem of Protection of visiting athletic teams was covered in this space indicating the High Point schools had poor to no Protection. At least one of the three local Junior High principals said the controlling and identifying offenders at sporting events was an impossible problem. Youngsters throughout the conference have a reputation of stoning visiting buses threatening athletes and generally causing disturbances that until this year had gone unpublicized. At least one school in the Piedmont triad conference apparently has found a Way to handle its discipline problems and is to be commended for action taken. The school is Salisbury Knox and the incident involved was the final track meet of the season this Spring. One of the High Point Junior highs had bus windows broken As it was leaving the meet. That kind of reaction on the part of Home team fans hns been typical As stated before. But what came afterwards certainly is not and that is what separated the rest of the league this year. Even though Knox has a Large enrolment the two youngsters who heaved rocks were identified after the offended school sent a letter of protest to the Salisbury principal. It did t end there though. Letters of apologies were sent b the students. In addition checks covering the amount of the damage were mailed from the parents of those involved. All in All it was a Quick cleanup to what has become a Messy situation Over the years. High Point s end of the problem May be helped some in the coming years with the addition of an extra principal at each school. But Knox action on the incident gives pause to two students who cause trouble can be rounded up so quickly at one school Why can t they at the others and what about making parents responsible for their children s actions in such matters someone commented after one of the earlier stories about the parents roles in Junior High discipline make the parents responsible for their kids actions. Instead of taking up so much time with the principal trying to discipline people go straight to the parents with the complaint and make them take care of the idea of parents responsibility for the actions of their children would be a Good one to apply in sports As Well As the other schemes Young people pull off. Maybe if a Parent had himself or herself embarrassed before Peers or had some Money taken from them to cover damages the head of the House might do a better Job of disciplining his child at Home where it should be done instead of leaving it to the school where the administrators and educators have to do double duty. Along with the report that Buffalo of the Aba wants to move to Florida in the new setup proposed by the league comes a report that Greensboro s Robert Mcadoo will not be there for the move. Mcadoo who starred a year at Carolina before turning pro has been the most valuable player in the Aba and is a top scorer for the braves. And that is part of the Buffalo problem. Management is reportedly convinced it can t win in the playoffs with a big scorer like Mcadoo. So look for a Trade Between Buffalo and Detroit for big Bob Lanier. It would mean the Exchange of two of the Well known names in the league and no doubt will cause a lot of controversy. But. Apparently Buffalo feels it needs the intimidating Center of a Bulky Lanier More than it needs the smooth scoring slim Ness of a Mcadoo what with merger talk in the air those players who formerly toiled for All the teams in the Aba Are worried that their pensions May be knocked out if a consolidation takes place. That would mean people like Gene Littles who played of his five years for the Carolina cougars would lose maybe All of his benefits under the new program. Nobody knows All the details yet but if Only the players who have been with the Aba since its beginning 10 years ago Are included in future pension plans there Are probably less than half a dozen left. Maybe More on that later three top Golf pros Heck with open Atlanta a the in creasing value of regular tour events and the three week 72hole hassle involved in gaining a spot in the .

On june 17, 1974, Frazier stopped Quarry in five rounds surprising him with jabs straight lefts and rights All of which made the famed left Hook More potent. There was pressure again on Frazier to quit after he was stopped following 14 grueling rounds against a last oct. 1. When it came time to reach a decision on whether to quit or not. Joe locked himself in his Philadelphia gym with Futch and Benton and went at it with someone described by Futch As a Good Young Joe impressed Futch enough that the Trainer advisor let it be known that Frazier would fight again for the right kind of purse and the kind of opponent that would earn him another title shot he did t need to work his Way said Futch he s been there. He s a former Champion of the world the Money canc up As million the same purse As Foreman s and the oppo nent was Foreman tonight comes the Challenge possibly the last of Frazier s fighting life Futch left Little doubt Mon Day about what will happen if his fighter Friend loses there would be no reason to go on Futch said he will never be just another of a loss would severely damage Foreman s career Loo butt probably would t end it since George is Only 27, five years younger than Frazier. George is confident. I know that whatever Joe Frazier does in this fight it will be what i let him do but.
