NEW YORK (AP) - Third baseman
raig Nettles dazzled the Los Angeles-
)odgers with four brilliant defensive
iays, and Thurman Munson and
leggie Jackson broke open a tight
lame in the seventh inning, leading the
few York Yankees to a 5-1 victory in

pitches, but he hurled New York to its
first victory in the best-of-seven series.
The Dodgers won the first two games at
home.

Nettles brought back memories of the
glove work of Baltimore's Brooks

against Cincinnati with some
miraculous stops that short-circuited

threebodgers threats.
TWICE WITH the bases loaded, Net-
tles gloved shots that seemed sure
doubles past third base and turned
them into harmless forceouts, bailing
Guidry out of jams and protecting a 2-1
Yankee lead.
Then, in the seven, Munson and
Jackson - who had failed the Yankees
in a clutch ninth-inning showdown in
Game 2- delivered run-scoring singles
that helped New York build a comfor-
table lead.
Guidry struggled throughout,

allowing at least one baserunner in
every inning and walking a season-high
seven batters. He surrendered eight
hits and managed only four strikeouts,
but he left 11 Los Angeles runners
stranded - thanks mostly to his third
baseman.
NETTLES BEGAN dominating this
game in the third inning. Bill North had
opened the frame with a walk and stole
second on the first pitch to Steve
Yeager.
Then North advanced to third on
Yeager's ground ball to shortstop.

s Yank
Davey Lopes lined to Nettles for the
second out, but Bill Russell legged out a
single to shortstop, barely beating the
throw to first as North scored the only
Dodgers run.
Then Reggie Smith sent a shot down
the third base line. Nettles backhanded
the ball and threw to first for the in-
ning's third out. With Russell running
on the two-out play, had the ball gotten
past Nettles, it might have meant a Lot-
Angeles run.
Nettles cost the Dodgers more than
one run in the fifth and sixth innings.

EAST LANSING-John Olver's fluke
oal at 6:03 of the second period proved
o be the game winner as the Michigan
ockey team defeated the Spartans of
4ichigan State in exhibition action, 6-3,
t Munn Arena last night.
The Michigan right winger scored his
oal from behind the net as he blanked
n an attempted centering pass off a
partan defenseman's skate. That goal
rave the Wolverines a 4-2 lead as cap-
ian Mark Miller, Dan Lerg and Bill
heeler had scored earlier.
The Spartans pulled within one, 4-3,
fter two periods but Gordie Hampson

and defenseman Dave Brennan scored
to put the game out of reach.
It was obvious from the play on the
ice thattthis was only an exhibition,ras
neither team looked particularly sharp.
However, the Wolverines highly-
touted freshamn Terry Cullen was out-
standing. It was fancy stick-handling
by Cullen that set up the Wolverines
final goal. The Michigan center skated
around three Spartans, getting off a
fine shot on goal. Although his shot did
not go in, it was his centering pass off
the rebound that enabled Brennan to
score.-

Yost Ice Arena Friday night against
Bowling Green.

WITH THE Yankees still nursing a 2-
1 lead built on a first-inning home rin
by Roy White and Bucky Dent's RBI
grounder in the secondi the Dodgers
made their first concentrated run at
Guidry in the fifth.
Yeager walked with one out, the fifth
base on balls Guidry allowed. Lopes
followed with a single to left, moving
the runner to second. Guidry got
Russell on a pop fly, but then Smith sent
a shot into Nettles' neighborhood:
The third baseman knocked the ball
down behind the base, holding Smith to
a single on what seemed at least a two-
base hit.
Now, though, Los Angeles had the
bases loaded with cleanup man Steve
Garvey at bat. Again the ball was hit to
third and again Nettles made a brilliant
stop and turned the hard shot into an
inning-ending forceout.
IN THE SIXTH, the Dodgers went
shopping for runs in the Nettles' area
again, and again it turned out to be a
big mistake.
With one out, Dusty Baker and Lee
Lacy singled. North flied to left, but fir-
st Baker and then White made blunders
on the play. At first, Baker went half-
way to third on the hit-and-run play
before stopping and retreating.
White, instead of throwing to third,
threw to second. By then, Baker had
tagged up and advanced to third on the
play.

Nets pop Pistons in debut

By ALAN FANGER
Special to The Daily
PONTIAC-The Detroit Pistons
may have ushered in their new 1978
NBA season with a new coach and a
new arena but their style of play had
the sloppiness of yesteryear in a 107-105
loss to the lowly New Jersey Nets.
A crowd of 13,699 watched the Pistons
drop their Pontiac Silverdome debut
under new coach Dick Vitale.
Like so many times in the past, the
Pistons beat themselves by committing
careless tur.novers, shooting poorly
Ifrom all parts of the court and permit-
ting the Nets to get postion on key inside
shots.
The statistics bare out such a poor
performance. The Pistons managed to
connect on but 41 per cent of their floor
shots and turned the ball over 29 times.

Both teams started sluggishly
although the Nets managed to make a
few inside shots which propelled them
to a 28-19 first quarter lead.
Detroit regained its shooting touch in
the second stanza, hitting a respectable
48 per cent from the field.
But Bernard King and John William-
son continued to penetrate the Piston
defense, and their efforts kept the Nets
on top, 52-46.
Former Michigan star guard Rickey
Green, acquired only five days ago,
shifted the Piston offense into high
gear, as Detroit even the score at 75-75
after three periods.
However, Williamson and King were
able to double-handily vault New Jer-
sey into a 10 point 95-85 lead with six
minutes left.
Refusing to play dead, Bob Lanier
went on a scoring rampage and shot the
Pistons back into a 101-101 tie with un-
der two minutes left.
The two teams exchanged buckets
and the Pistons brought the ball down
court with a chance to take the lead.
But. in a most ironic play, newly
acquired guard Kevin Porter, recently
re-acquired from the Nets, was called
for charging into Eric Money, who the
Pistons had sent to the Nets in ex-

change for Porter.
Money dropped the two ensuing free
throws, giving the Nets the game.
Detroit's loss overshadowed a record
21 point fourth quarter performance by

Lanier, who earned game honors with a
total of 38 points.
Williamson led New Jersey scorers
with 35 points while King added 25.

"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?"
Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25

Probably Dr. Campbell Morgan was one of the past
Generation's greatest Preachers and Teachers.
"Repetition", he said, "is exceeding effective and fruitful in
education and teaching. It is said that John Wesley's Father
once remarked to M rs. Wesley: "Think you told that child the
same thing 20 times!" "Maybe so, but he did not learn it on
the 19th." the English speaking peoples, yea, and all man-
kind owe Mrs.Wesley a debt of gratitude for the results of her
boys John and Charles.J
The following is a repetition and reprint of a recent article
in this Column which as a result of recent Christmas Mail
Confusion failed to get in some papers it was due - glad for
the correction it makes as well for its repetition.
"YE ARE MY WITNESSES!" Isaiah 43:10. Again "YE ARE
MY WITNESSES!" So spake Christ in Luke 24:48 just as He
was about to ascend back to Heaven.
in 2nd Chronicles 16:9 The Spirit of God says: "FOR THE
EYES OF GOD RUN TO AND FRO THROUGHOUT THE
WHOLE EARTH, TO SHOW HIMSELF STRONG IN THE
BEHALF OF THEM WHOSE HEART IS PERFECT
TOWARDS HIM!" May I ask what does the Lord see when
running around your whereabouts to see what sort of
Witness you bear these days.
Have you taken the vows and joined some Evangelical
Protestant Christian Church? If so, have you taken heed to
Christ's instructions where He said: "TAKE MY YOKE UPON
YOU, AND LEARN OF ME!" Taken heed sincerely enough to
know, to learn, to strive to testify and establish "the things of

Christ!" If not, and you are unwilling to sincerely undertake
to carry out His Instructions, this scribe would advise you to
go and resign your Church membership and get out!
"FORBEAR THEE FROM MEDDLING WITH GOD!"
All of us who are striving to be sincere Christians should
give attention to "The Cleansing of Christ's Church" begin-
ning with ourselves! In the Gospel of John 13:8 Christ said:
"IF I WASH THEE NOT, THOU HAST NO PART WITH ME!" It
appears that most of us are afraid to criticize or kick the
lawless out of the Church. Someone has said the Church has
gotten so evil and weak and run down she Is not strong
enough "to take a bath!" Did not The Apostle Paul speaking
by inspiration say: "DELIVER SUCH A ONE TO SATAN FOR
THE DESTRUCTION OF THE FLESH, THAT THE SPIRIT
MIGHT BE SAVED IN THE DAY OF LORD JESUS!" - 1st
Corinthians 5:5.
We now quote Matthews 22:11-14: "AND WHEN THE
KING CAME IN TO SEE THE GUESTS, HE SAW THERE A
MAN WHICH HAD NOT ON A WEDDING GARMENT: AND
HE SAID UNTO HIM, FRIEND, HOW CAME THOU IN
HITHER NOT HAVING A WEDDING GARMENT?'AND HE
WAS SPEECHLESSI' THEN SAID THE KING TO THE
SERVANTS, BIND HIM HAND AND FOOT, AND TAKE HIM
AWAY, AND CAST HIM INTO OUTER DARKNESS: THERE
SHALL BE WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH. FOR
MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW CHOSEN!"
"BE READY WHEN HE COMES AGAIN, HE IS COMING
AGAIN SO SOON!"I

PONTIAC
I T'S AMAZING the job the Detroit Pistons did last night in pulling off the
first professional basketball game in the Pontiac Silverdome. Managing
partner Bill Davidson, the thrust behind the Piston's move from their
Detroit home of Cobo Arena to this football stadium managed to find a way
to convert the Detroit Lion's 80,000-seat football arrangement into a com-
fortable 22,000-seat basketball arena.
rle didso by tucking the new $68,000 floor into the southeast corner of the
stadium, erecting two sections of portable seats and utilizing what is repor-
ted to he the largest commercial theatrical backdrop known in this country
at the 50-yard line of the football field.
I won't go as far as to say that the Pistons made it through the opening
night without noticable flaws. Much like a new house has leaky plumbing,
nicked walls and an abundance of dirt from the construction, so too did the
Pistons have their opening night problems.
The most noticable hazard that fans fought were the skimpy aisleways
on the main floor. When two people tried to walk next to one another enroute
to their seats, they cut off the traffic coming from the other direction. But
much to the credit of the first night's fans, most of the paying customers
were patient.
Another objection I found in the arena set-up is that those who forked out
the eight dollars to sit in the portable seats erected along one end-line and on
adjacent sideline were forced to take a long hike up to the concession level to
get some food or use the bathrooms. I lost track of just how many steps there
are to climb when the numbers reached 35. Port-a-johns and concession
tables were temporarily installed in the outer concourse for those in the
high-priced seats. This may have been done for convenience, but it created
the look of a construction zone. It didn't help matters to have three fork-lift
trucks next to the johns.
Yet, for the most part, the reaction among fans at halftime was that the
Pistons might have a charce to turn a profit now that they have moved to the
Silverdome. This crowd I speak of is drastically changed from the one which
used to take in the Cobo-era Pistons. Gone is the dominance of disco outfits
and high-heeled shoes on most of the women. Not as many men were decked
out in satin leisure suits last night, but arrived in more conservative
business suits.
There is a reason for all this. You see, the crowd at last night's Piston
game was predominantly white. It was the Birmingham-Bloomfield crowd
that supported the ballclub last night. This is exactly what the Pistons hoped
for when they announced their move-the financial support of the suburbs.
The argument for not supporting the Pistons at Cobo was that Detroit is not
safe at night. Well, now the more generally affluent suburbanites must feel
that Pontiac is safe, as they turned out in record numbers to the tune of
13,688.
