Invading

Blue

By HUD ENGLEHART
Down in Durham, North Carol-
ina they make slow burning
cigarettes and slow-talking people
who rarely. push the accelerators
in their mouths.
Generally there are only two
things that make life hectic for
the easy-going city. Both things
are housed on Duke University's
beautiful campus.
Football is one of the two things
that excite Durham's populace
but the other one - the most
important one - puts a mass of
burning desire in the hearts of
' the Duke fan.
On a given night in 'Durham,
the polite Southerner will sud-
denly turn into King Rabble at
the sight of a Mike Lewis charg-
ing the boards and coming up
with a key rebound.
Basketball. That's what they
wait for all year and by the time
the season gets under way the
game is almost as precious as
secession was in 1860.

Michigan fans are going to find
out why basketball has such a
rousing influence in Durham as
Duke's Blue Devils invade the
new University Events Building
tonight at 8:00.
"We've scouted Duke," says
Michigan Head Coach D a v e
Strack, "and, as always, they have
a tough team."
Not only will Duke be tough
as always, they'll be fast as al-
ways, too. In their practice ses-
sions Vic Bubas, the Blue Devil
head coach, likes a lot of run-
ning. -There is nothing like dur-
ability when it comes to winning.
Sweet
Bubas' formula for victory must
be a good one as he has yet to
suffer through a losing season as
head mentor of the Blue Devils
and many of his teams have en-
joyed national ranking.
According to Bubas, however,
finding the winning combination!
will not be easy this season.
"We only have one chance of
having the kind of team we've
been accustomed to having," says
Bubas, "We're just going to have
to outbattle our opponents. We
don't have the Vergas or Reidys
or Heymans that we've had in the
past. Those guys could carry you
through a game even if the rest
of the team was a little bit down.
Hustlers
"In our first game with VPI
we won Wvith a lot of hustle and
good defense and that's the way
it will have to be all season if we
expect to go anywhere," Bubas
continued."
Bubas calls his team a "strange
one" because he hasn't been able
to decide on one unit to carry
the Blue Devil hopes for the '67-
'68 season.
"I have nine players who I
wouldn't be afraid to play at any

Devil
and we're watching them every
day. That'll give you some idea
of how close these boys are."
Strack's main concern about
the game tonight is Duke's re-
bounding strength.
"There boys are a little huskier
than ours," he says, "but if Ste-
wart and Tomjanovich can dupli-
cate their performance against
Detroit, we might be able to
match their power."
Bubas is particularly concerned
with the offensive punch that the
Wolverines displayed in Detroit
on Monday night.
"We know that Tomjanovich
can shoot the eyes out of the
basket and we'll certainly be try-
ing to contain him. Stewart was
very effective against Detroit and'

PRO CAGE:
Pistons
By The Associated Press

Let's face it. There are some
things that have to be done. In
that we differ from no other
priest.
But - the Paulist feels he can
rise above the everyday tasks
that must be done. Because he
is an individual and is treated
accordingly, he is free to de-
velop his own innate talents to
achieve his goals. Individuality
is the keynote of the Paulists.
We depend on the individual

Follett's pays you,

your used books
Comes the end of the semester, you really
appreciate extra money. Follett's can give you
more hard cash for your used books because
we're part of a big operation and can afford to
share our volume-buying savings with you. We
buy all kinds of Textbooks, even those not
currently being used on the campus or being
used next semester.
So, as soon as your exams are over, bring in your
books and get good pick-up cash for that after-
exam let down. And, next semester buy your books
at Follett's (we sell them for less, too) and take
good care of them so you'll get a good buck for
them come next semester's end.
It's a lovely, vicious circle. And cents-able, too.
