Under the leadership of_-
KSR Recreation Director, Mr.
W. Wilson, and resident in-
structor, W. G. Rudy, the KSR
tennis classes and intramural
tennis program cleared their
first obstacle. the inclement
weather, and got off to a very
exciting and impressive start.

In the tennis classes. the

attending residents are taught ‘

the basics of tennis play: the

forehand stroke, backhand

stroke, serve and lob, rather,
than play and game strategy. -

In the advanced seeded
position, and because of the
non-existence of a KSR varisty
team,‘ the top seeded players
are as follows in alphabetical
order: R. Bishop, C. Cook, D.
Elliott, K. Forley," Forid L.
Hamilton, J. Horpring, ' C.
Harrison, K. Hayes, C.
Kimbrough, L. Lenston, B.
Longest, J. Matthews. J.
Pickney, R. Pilon, W. Rudy,
G. Taylor and C. Vandyke.

In the intramural tennis
league, there are three

teams—“The Balls” coached
by”W. Rudy, “The Nets”
coached by K.’ Hayes and
“The Rockets” coached by L.
Lenston. In the first figame of
the‘season, The Nets were
pitted against The Rockets. In
the singles matches, J.
Horpring defeated The Nets’
K. ‘ Forley 6,-0, 6-1. C.
Kimbrough of The Rockets
defeated L. Hamilton of The
Nets 1-6, 6-3, 6-4. In the
doubles «matches, The Nets-
K. Hayes and'Lr Hamilton
defeated The Rockets’ B'.
Longest and R. 1Pilon'6-0, 6-2.

In the second match of the
season, 4 The Balls’ J.
MattheWs defeated J. Pickney
of TheNets 3-6, 6-3, 7-5. R.
Bishop of The Balls, defeated
'K. Forley 6-3, 7-5. D. Elliott of
The Balls, defeated [Lt-{Hayes

. All things that don’t seem right or comfortable,
Stem From ignorance,

Or the extent of being the unknown factors,

. .The Old adage fear of the unknown,
Yet lastbut not least there is also fear
0f the known factors,
All we seem to find is temporary relief,
No absolutes in this world as we know
It at the present,

' All we can do is to seek the temporaries
In the world as 'we know it,

But the aim is to find the absolute solution,

T 0 all stress problems,

To find it in the world as we know it
Seems an impossible task, .
But to find it is really bur every striving endeavor,
To perfect the pie, the only real logic,
Perhaps to put all the temporaries together in a collect sense,
Is the real answer, ' ‘
And the stepping stone pathway to perfected pie,

Is first to philosophize and continueto seek,

.For out of the seeker,

- Surely comes the temporary perfections,
And he who continues to seek,
This absolute Elysium, ’

Shall surely one day 'be part of it, .
And his contribution to the absolute perfection,

The ’measureIof his position in it.

John Wesley [1703-1791]

I had the opportunity to
observe the game of basket-
ball now in progress here at
Kentucky State Reformatory. I
decided to write this article
about seven basketball players
with a remarkable and smooth
game. -

With some difficulty, I
chose seven basketball players

‘ from the many talented play-

ers here. I chose these seven
because each contributed
something different to the
game as well as they are just
“too tough.”
A good place to start is with

the shooters or scorers. The

three that I chose can make or
break any. gamnze If either one
is “hot” or ’he Will blow
a team right out of the gym.

Julius Pickney, a quick and

among defensive players. He:

the hoop.” 0n the, court'thef
fellows call him- "‘Doctor‘

With his smooth and fluid”
jump shot, Mike Mundy would

be my clutch man. I would
want him to take the deciding

_ shot; whether I was ahead by

one or behind by one; He has
excellent body control. This is
one reason that he is so
effective. He is a great power
guard. 'With his “Downtown”
jump shot, his friends, 'call
him “Star. ”

George Gervin is GeOrge

George Gervin. This young, .

quick, tough and marvelous
basketball player has so many

moves that he keeps them 1n 3. *

trick bag. Sometimes, he even

surprises himself. The best _
thing about his game is that he- -

is left-handed with a terrifying
slam dunk. Besides being a

consistent soorer,‘ he can re-’ ,
bound and' pass. He . is a

complete ball player.

All magic, it goes without
saying, is illusion. The effect"
of the illusion is how it appears. '

ones, and I would be lying if I.

is very flexible. His passes are,
not impossible, but the'yrun a '

Tragic or magic—the ball is

see on television. Ifirst heard
the term “Shake and Bake”'in

' , thoughts. I finally came to the

Conclusion that he has'a
conservative game. He has a



He plays a small center, but he

' is really a power forward. His ~

favoriteshot' is the hook, but
he would rather slam on his

opponent. His friends call him
" “Too Tall", but his name is

Milton Ray. I
' “The. Intimidator” is the
only word that I can use to

. describe “Big Tom Payne.”

He is so big and awesome in
'the‘ middle that he makes a
player‘give him "the .ball. He
'will block a shot from any-

, where He destroys an inside

game, but he has one small

problem. He has a tendency to‘
reject a. shot so hard that the‘

ball goes out of bounds.
Besides he slams Ivery hard—
too hard. :He loves to catch a

ball in from of the rim and

.slam it. I am expecting him to
-, pull a ball apart on a Irebbund

.. someday.

Our basketball program he-

"re at La Grange, has many, ,

good and talantedI players. I
am sorry that I could not write
about each and everyone. Yet,
I chose these seven because
their games are liked and

respeCted So, IIIhope that each .
, ' player keeps on with the
things that works for his ~

, personal game and his team.
