NEW YORK (P) - Louisiana
State's Pete Maravich continues
to roll along at a 47-points-per-
game clip as the nation's top scor-
er in major college basketball.
Rudy Tomianovich, Michigan's
star forward, moved up one po-
sition in t h i s week's listings to
eighth. Tomjanovich, who is av-
eraging over 30 points per game,
is one of three Big Ten players in
the top ten.
Maravich was among four in-
dividual department leaders w o
held firm last week in figures re-
leased yesterday by the National
Collegiate Sports Services.
Artis Gilmore and Pembroke
Burrows of high-scoring Jackson-
ville remained on top in the re-
bounding and field goal accur-
acy, respectively, and Harvard's
Matt Bezek held his edge in free
throw percentage.

Jacksonville continued to set the
pace in team scoring with a per-
game average of 104.9 points,
highest ever this late in the sea-
son. Army, bidding for a third
consecutive crown, lowered i t s
per-game yield to 52.4 points per-
game, best in the nation.
Maravich scored 564 points in
12 games through Jan. 17. Runner-
up Austin Carr of Notre Dame had
518 in 15 starts for a 34.6 aver-
Gilmore average 25.8 rebounds
per game, teammate Burrows had
a .687 field goal percentage and
Bezek was 60 for 66 from the foul

_________________Bill Cusumano_____
Faithful followers of Michigan basketball have had a great
time during the past two seasons watching the Wolverines run
and shoot and pile up bunches of points. Johnny Orr has his
crew flying up and down the court anid the action never stops.
But, believe it or not, no matter how fast the Wolver-
ine pace is, it can't even begin to compare to that seen in
the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
The CIAA, for those who don't know, is a group of predom-
inantly black schools in Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and
South Carolina. If Michigan can be called a group of road-
runners then the CIAA schools have to be considered cheetahs.
Man, they fly. And po'ints? You've never seen so many. Two
guys are needed to operate the scoreboard down there, one for
each team. No itian could keep up by himself.
The CIAA believes in scoring and the word defense has been
struck from all existent dictionaries. A team that doesn't aver-
age 100 points is a disgrace. For instance, take Norfolk State.
Led by Bob Dandridge, last year they averaged in the neigh-
borhood of 120 points per game.
Such averages are not unusual among the conference lead-
ers, though, mainly because it takes about that many points to
win. Quite obviously the .team that can get off the most shots
has the best chance to win, and to be able to do that CIAA
teams have developed a definite formula of club make-up.
The first requirenivnt is raw speed. It Is absolutely nec-
cessary that a team have at least one man who does the
hundred in 9.7 or so. His Job is very simple: when the op-
ponent shoots he takes off for the opposite end and hopes to
get a long pass that he can turn Into a layup.
For that play to work the team must first, of course, get
the ball. That task falls to the mhan who fulfills the second re-
quirement. That Is, every team mpst have at least one monster
who Is a minimum of 6-6 and 250. Preferably he can't shoot
either, so he'll devote all of his energies to rebounding.
But if the break doesn't work -there must be other ways of
shooting quickly. Thus everyonie must own a player who spec-
ializes in 40-foot jumpers. Of course it is desirable that he be
capable of making a few. If he can't, then it is the job of the
monster and the other front line men to tap in the shot. For
this it is required that a great leaper be on the team. In the old
days such a player was really good to have because he could
dunk a lot of shots.
Only one other thing is needed, a fancy ballhandler. A play-
er who dribbles between his legs and passes behind his back is
an absolute necessity, because, you see, in addition to the scor-
ing, the CIAA is also a spectacle.
The show starts before the contest. Usually everyone on
the club can dunk and the crowd gets its kicks out of count-
ing the stuffs. A few squads even throw in some Harlem
Globetrotter warm-ups.
Sounds like fun, doesn't it? And fun it is, but no one should
confuse that with being a joke. The CIAA teams have some
great talent and are usually quite capable of kicking around a
lot of the major schools. One of the finest teams that I have
seen for sheer raw talent was the Winston-Salem State crew
that Earl. Monroe led to the NCAA Small College title.
In addition to the Pearl (who was also affectionately called
Black Jesus by his fans) there was a center named William Eng-
lish who possessed a brilliant hook with either hand. There was
also a big, strong forward, James Reid, who played for the '6ers
for awhile and a smooth, quick guard named Eugene Smiley.
Smiley got down the floor as quickly as anyone Ive ever seen
and Earl or English usually got him the ball.
Winston-Salem was great to watch, both for the fans
and the team. They gave you a total show on and off the
court. The scoreboard kept blinking and the fans loved It,
and, what's more, showed their appreciation, It wasexcel-
lence of play combined with a lot of fun.
But that's the way the CIcAA operates anyway. You get a
lot more for your money when those teams take the floor. The
only defect is that after the game your neck feels like it has been
watching a tennis match because the ball changes direction
so rapidly. That's compensated for, though, by the light show
that is created by the ever changing scoreboard.
What would Spiro say-

Answer that one and you'll open up a
whole new field of solid state physics
that just might come to be called
"excitonics." Because the most excit-
ing thing about excited molecules in
solids, right now, is that no one knows
what to do with them.
This intriguing state of affairs came
about after physicists began firing
photons into molecular crystals and
observing the results. Which were:
An exciton is a conceptual entity that
has more "stateness"than "thingness"
about it. When a photon strikes a
molecule in an organic crystal with
sufficient energy, it bumps an electron
to a higher energy level, leaving a
"hole" in the molecule. In the brief
interval before it falls back into its hole,
the electron releases the energy it re-
ceived from the photon, which propa-
gates another hole-electron pair in a
neighboring molecule, and thus on

through the crystal.
This phenomenon is called the
"singlet" excited state: or the singlet
exciton. Du Pont scientists have pro-
duced it with a 150-watt bulb. In the
singlet, an electron is excited without
any change in direction of its spin or
magnetic moment. It dies quickly, and
a blue light emerges from the crystal.
But with an intense light source, such
as the laser, an even more interesting
excited state has been produced: the
In the triplet, the spin of the excited
electron is reversed, a magnetic field
is produced, and the excited state lasts
a million times as long-about a hun-
d redth of a second. Du Pont researchers
have also found that two triplets can
combine, producing a singlet exciton
with greatly increased energy and a
life span of a hundred millionth of a
second. Of promising interest is that
this tendency of triplets to merge can

be sensitively controlled by applying a
magnetic field to the crystal.
Perhaps the next step will be the
engineering of devices that manipulate
light signals directly, bypassing the
present need to convert them first into
electrical signals and then back into
light. Perhaps too this line of research
will lead to greater understanding of
the mechanisms of light-energy trans-
fer itself, such as those involved in
photosynthesis by living plants. The
possibilities are many.
Innovation-applying the known to
discover the unknown, inventing new
materials and putting them to work,
using research and engineering to
create the ideas and products of the
future-this is the venture Du Pont
people are engaged in.

It's called alonger-lasting engine.
Longer lasting than what?
Longer lasting than our old engine, which in case
you didn't know, was one of the toughest engines
The new version is more powerful.(Top speed:
81mph vs. 78mph.).
It has better acceleration.
And most important, it weighs the same as the
older version. So it doesn't have to work as hard to
getyou where you're going.
But that's where the generation gap ends:
The new engine will still give you a good 26
miles to a gallon of gas.
It still takes pints of oil instead of quarts.
It still abstains from antifreeze. (Because it's still

better traction in mud and snow.
