SECOND IN NCAA'S:
A. LEE KIRK
TO CALL THE RACE last year in the National League West a
dogfight would be an understatement. To call it a source of
great national excitement would be an overstatement.
While the world marvelled at the achievements of Balti-
more's 'super team' and got knocked on its derriere at the ac-
complishments of the Mets, the NL West quietly went around its
business with a five-team race, a baseball first and a real mir-
acle considering there were only five teams in the division.
Nowhere was the impact of the frenzied face lost more than
it was in Houston. The Astros and their fans had always con-
tented themselves with the world's first domed stadium for base-
ball and the world's first carpet of Astro-Turf. To have a win-
ner in stch a glorious palace was something so magnificant
that even an egocentric Texan would probably tell you that
it was too much to ask for.
Yet it nearly came to pass. Houston overcame a bad start
and moved into the thick of it far sooner than even the Mets.
q'They were only two games off the pace in early September be-
fore they collapsed to finish in the fifth-place slot unanimously
accorded them before the season began. This Astro surge be-
comes even remarkable when one recognizes that they didn't
hit for beans. Jim Wynn led the team with an anemic .269, and
Houston batters in general seemed to swing with clubs more
suited for whiffle balls. Houston thrived on the strong young
arms of pitchers like those of Larry Dierker and Don Wilson,
and it is hard to believe that these arms will fail the Astros
this year. Equally inconceivable is a repeat of the collective
misery the Astros endured last year at the plate.
Ex-Yankee Joe 'Pepitone could respond in style if the As-
tros can generate a winning atmosphere, and rookie John May-
berry shows promise of blooming earlier than even the most
optimistic Houston rooter had hoped. Wynn, Dennis Menke,
Jesus Alou and a host of mediocre but solid players give Hous-
ton a solid line-up, and it is more than likely that the ball club
will at last outdraw the stadium.
Predicting a winner in the NL West is the epitome of
optimism. Outside of the Padres of San Diego, any of the
other five teams is fully capable of taking it all or dropping
out of sight into fifth.
ATLANTA seemed as'good a bet as anyone when spring
training began. Then Ron Reed got a longer suspension than
Denny McLain when he injured his shoulder and went under
the knife. He could conceivably miss the entire season, and the
questionable Atlanta pitching ceased to be a question. Reed won
his last eleven starts last year and without him, the Braves have
only Phil Niekro. Carrying a faceless pitching staff is more
than even Henry Aaron can handle.
CINCINNATI will hit. For most of last year they had five
or six .300 hitters, but they had just about the worst pitching
around. The shaky status of the entire division allowed them to
survive most of the season without this essential, but in the
end, when the hitters faded just a bit, Cinsinnati died. To al-
a leviate this condition, the Reds traded some of their hitters,
notably Alex Johnson, to strengthen the pitching, but even now
the Reds' pitching is laid low by injuries. Cincinnati could win,
but to pick them now is to assume that a whole lot of unproven
assumptions will become realities.
SAN FRANCISCO is someone's pick every year, and invar-
iably, they are by September someone's disappointment. Such
habits are hard to break. The Giants are trying a little minor
face-lifting (like cutting Jim Ray Hart) but still, it is a team
that Bay residents will unenthustically recognize. Outside of
Mays, McCovey and Marichal, the Giants' players wallow in ob-
scurity. They seem every year to possess enough good men to
get them to the top, but not enough of them to stay there.
Something will have to give if this is to change.
LOS ANGELES possesses superiority in mediocrity to their
northern neighbors, and they have two 20-game winners in-
stead of one. Indeed, of all the teams in the west, they appear
to be the soundest. They have enough good players to fill the
nine positions and there will always be a few good ones left
on the bench. Still, they lack the one or two players who can
really excel and breathe fire into a team. For the Los Angeles
crew to take it in the West, all the other contenders would have
to fail in finding answers to their question marks. This makes
them as dubious a winner as anyone.
All the preceeding brings me back to Houston. There is no
way Houston can win it - right - and there's no way anyone
else can take it - right? Would you believe San Diego???

CAPE TOWN, South Africa (4)
- Prime Minister John Verster
yesterday indicated he will not
give way to demands that South
Africa desegregate sports.
"No onu has done more to keep
the traditional sporting ties of
South Africa than I," he, told a
political rally. "I went out of my
way and I will go out of my way
in the future, because I value
these ties and I am a sportsman
myself. But ... no one should ex-
pect me to knuckle down to the
demands of Communist countries
He said the reason why South
Africa was barred from the 1970
Davis Cup tennis tournament was
not because she refused a visa to
a black United States player
(Arthur Ashe) but becausp "the
Communist c o u n t r i e s Poland,
Czechoslovakia and Rumania re-
fused to play with us."
They wanted "mixed sport in
South Africa in all spheres-school
sports, tennis, cricket," he said.
He asked his audience: "Do you
want to open your tennis clubs
to people of all colors?"
When several. listeners shouted
"yes" he retorted:
"Why-haven't you done it. You
have had plenty of time to do it."

Oi a single charge.
The Norelco Rechargeable Tripleheader
Shaver was made to do two things:
To shave you as close or closer than a
stainless steel razor blade.
And to give you up to twice as many shaves
per charge as'any other rechargeable shaver.
Here's how it works.
The heads actually float, to follow the.
curves of your face.
They go in where your face curves in, and
out where your face curves out.
And because the blades are rotary, they
shave your beard in every direction at once.
(If you don't think that means anything, feel
your face. Feel how your beard grows in different
directions on different parts of your face?)
The Norelco Tripleheader also has a
pop-up trimmer, so you can see exactly what
It has a Charge Indicator that lights up
when it's charging.
It has a Shave Counter to countyourshaves
And it gives you nearly twice as many
shaves per charge as any other rechargeable.
So if you're shaving with a blade,
feel around your chin and neck and upper lip.
If it feels like you could use a closer
shave, get yourself a Norelco Rechargeable.
And shave your whole face for a change.
