In his career at Ohio State

COMMUNITY OF THE SUN
Official puck named
At a meeting of the NHL owners held early this month in
Mellville, Saskatchuwan, the world-famous "Quaddieburger" was
designated the official hockey puck for the 1976 season.."The}
consistency and texture were unsurpassed," remarked GuyI
LeMandupierre, owner, general manager and third string goalie
of the Saskatoon Dolphins.
Walton jumps to SLA
Bill Walton, controversial center for the Portland Trailblazers
of the National Basketball Association, has jumped to the SLA
for a hitherto unofficially reported amount.
A source close to the red-headed, free-spirited youth estimatest
that the Rebels, the San Francisco franchise of the SLA, was
able to lure the star from the NBA with a promise of "a quantity
of mung beans, two acres of land in beautiful Horizon Springs,
several pounds of Lebanese Red and complete political asylum."
Michigan tabs recruit
Assistant Michigan basketball coach Jim Dutcher has an-
nounced that he is "extremely close" to signing one of the
nation's top young schoolboy prospects for the Maize and Blue.k
"We'll really solve our future center problems if I cafl nail
this kid," Dutcher quipped.
The kid, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Horace Debussey Jones,
of Altitude, New Mexicd, promises to be one of the biggest
sensations in Blue roundball history.
Mr. Jones stands tall at 7-2, while his wife is 6-6. Their son,
still unnamed, should reach, as estimated by Dr. B. B. Blade-
thorn, a height of 7-6 at maturity.
The Jones boy obviously tired from all the recent new
experiences and attention, remarked, "Ooohwaa," and was im-
mediately returned to the incubator.
