game complaining of headaches and
Munson was batting in the first inning
when apparently the dizziness began.
He stepped out of the batter's box and
bent over as Manager Bob Lemon and
trainer Gene Monahan came out of the
dugout to check him. But Munson went
back to the plate and grounded out.

CAMP DAVID, Md. - As the talks at
Camp David continue to plod along with
no real breakthrough thus far, many
government officials and political
analksts have become skeptical about
any real success from the summit.
Sources close to the talks between
Egyptian President Anwar Sadat,
Israeli' Prime Minister Menachem
Begin and President Jimmy Carter say
that the talks have stagnated over a
singular point, with feelings from Begin
and Sadat so strong that they have not
met face-to-face since last Thursday.
Diplomatic sources, who have
refused to be named, pinpoint the
problem as differing offensive
strategies for the upcoming Daily
Libels-vs. Camp David Recluses, slated
for action this Saturday. Sadat insists
upon heavy artillery aid from the U.S.
to help offset the strong passing game o
the Libels, while Begin supports the
infantry attack, long a mainstay of the
"Dammit, Menachem, we need to get
some help through the air to try to beat
their young defensive backs deep early
in the game," Sadat was quoted as
saying before the trio ducked into
"That wouldn't be kosher, Anwar,"
Begin quickly retorted. "It was because
of our ground game that we gained so
much yardage in 1967."
Carter has consistently attempted to
remain neutral throughout this bitter
controversy, simply reminding the
principals that a decision must be
reached by midnight Friday with all
their Gridde Picks to 420 Maynard in
order to be eligible for the coveted
small, two-item pizza from Pizza Bob's.
Carter's only offer of aid has been the
use of Billy to the Recluses for the
halftime beer-guzzling drinkoff with the
