Great Paper!

PITTSBURGH ()-No one else
in baseball may get psyched up
quite like excitable Steve Blass,
who'll officially become a 170-
pound bundle of raw nerves by 1
p.m: today.
That's when the Pittsburgh. Pi-
rate righthander takes the pitch-
ing mound against ,the Cincinnati
Reds in the first game of the Na-
tional League playoffs.
The Reds will send 21-year-old
left-hander Don Gullett in the first
game at Three Rivers Stadium.
The 21-year-old Gullett posted
a sub-par 9-10 won-lost record
this season, but he was out much
of the spring and summer, re-
covering from an attack of hep-
Blass said he was especially
concerned about Cincinnati's first
three hitters-Pete Rose, Joe Mor-
gan and Bobby Tolan.

"The thing that makes them so
tough is that they not only have
speed, but they can hit the ball
out of the park," Blass said.
"If you let one of the first three'
guys get on base, it's hard to give
your total concentration to Bench
and Perez," he said, "and that's
Nonetheless, Cincinnati also has
high esteem for Blass, whose
two victories against Baltimore
helped Pittsburgh win the World
Series in 1971.
Perhaps a crucial factor for the
Pirates in, the series will be the
hitting of Willie Stargell, who went
0-for-14 in a playoff with the San
Francisco Giants a year ago.
Stargell led the Pirates with 33
home runs and 112 RBIs this sea-
son, but he managed only four
hits in 14 times at bat after Sept.
15 and he hasn't homered since
Sept. 4.
In sweeping the series three
games to none in 1970, the Reds
held Clemente to three hits and
only one run batted in for 14 at-
bats. Stargell's only extra base
hit was a double although he reg-
istered six hits. He also had only
one RBI.
"I guess, when you come down
to it, you've got to get both
Clemente and Stargell," Cincin-
nati team captain Pete Rose
said. "You've got to get to the
guts of the order, and they are
the guts of the Pirates."
"Without Clemente, Pittsburgh
isn't the s-me club," Anderson
said. "He's jest a great hitter. To
be honest, I don't think you can
stop him from getting his hits but
his hits usually aren't the ones
that beat"you."

Williams said, "I don't need to
know it until we walk out to home
Williams won't find any surprise
in the No. 9 spot of the Tigers' bat-
ting order. Portly left-hinder Mick-
ey Lolich, 22-14, will be the start-
ing pitcher in today's opener
against the A's Jim' "Catfish"
Hunter, 21-7. -
Hunter was 3-0 against the Ti-
gers in the regular season and
Lolich was 0-2 against the West-
ern Division champion A's.
"I'm not saying this to criticize
our hitters, but I pitched three
times against the A's and we scor-
ed a total of four runs," said Lo-
lich before the Tigers practiced
yesterday at Oakland Coliseum.
The Tigers batted .217 against
Oakland this season, losing eight of
the 12 games in the series.
"I'm worried about all of them
who come up with bats in their
AP Photo hands,, said Hunter.

Enjoy It,!

WHY ARE THESE men laugh-
ing? It's obvious. Jim "Catfish"
Hunter has just succeeded in
putting a bear hug on Mickey
Lolich, quite a feat considering
the Mick'serotund girth. Mean-
while, Lolich makes plans to
dump Catfish while popping his
next wheelie. But alas, only one
smile will endure after Lolich
and Hunter toil in the tangle
'twixt the Tigers and the A's.

'1W' harriers glitter
Michigan's rapidly improving cross-country team staged another
exceptional performance yesterday in a Postal meet held at their own
newly surfaced track.
The purpose of the meet was to get official times for the three-
mile event and combine the best five for a national ranking service,
which Michigan placed third in last year out of about seventy teams
from all over the country.
This year, however, they did even better as they turned in an
impressive combined total time of 71:03, thirty seconds faster than
last year. Based on last years ranking this would move them into
second, ahead of Bowling Green. Oregon State won the title. Interest-
ingly enough, the average time per man was 14:12.5. This time was
good for fourth place in the Big Ten outdoor track meet last year.
Coach Dixon Farmer was naturally very pleased about the meet,
and stated afterward, "The thing that makes me most excited about
the meet is that it came three weeks earlier this year than last year.
Keith Brown led the way for Michigan with a 13:50.8 clocking,
two seconds faster than his last year's performance. Brown appeared
to pull away at the sixth lap, and turned in a 9:13 clocking at the
two mile. Bill Bolster knocked 18 seconds off his best time with a
14:09.5 clocking in second place.
Close behind him was George Khouri with a 14:23, which was 40
seconds faster than his best. Rounding out the top five were Mike
Taylor 14:22 and Jon Cross 14:29.3. Mike Pierce appears to be getting
back in shape as he turned in a 14:33.7 for sixth place.
Next action for the Harriers will be the Notre Dame Invitational
next Friday.

All-star catcher Bill Freehan
was one mystery man on the
Tigers' roster. He broke his
right thumb with 11 games left
in the season, but is back in uni-
form for the playoffs.
"He's ready to catch," said Mar-

the best-of-five series.
"I've been platooning my play-
ers all season. I'll do exactly the
same thing in the playoffs," Mar-
tin said.
Williams set his starting lineup
several days ago and said yester-
day, "Naturally I'd be interested in
knowing Billy's."
The A's will have three left-
handed hitters - Matty Alou,
Reggie Jackson and Mike Ep-
stein - facing southpaw. Lolich.
Oakland's Dick Williams and
Detroit's Billy Martin both are
managerial veterans of post-season
play. Williams guided the Boston
Red Sox to a World Series title in
1967, while Martin previously

in 1969.

parents read?
In the first grade, when you were taught
to read "Run Spot Run," you had to read it
out loud. Word-by-word. Later, in the second
grade, you were "asked to read silently. But
you couldn't do it.
You stopped reading out loud, but you
continued to say every word to yourself.
Chances are, you're doing it right now.
This means that you read only as fast
as you talk. About 250 to 300 words per
minute. (Guiness' Book of World Records
lists John F. Kennedy as delivering the fast-
est speech on record: 327 words per
The Evelyn Wood Course teaches you
to read without mentally saying each word
to yourself. Instead of reading one word at
a time, you'll learn to read groups of words.

and it grows
when it rains
With training, you'll learn to use your
innate ability to see groups of words.
As an Evelyn Wood graduate, you'll be
able to read between 1,000 and 3,000
words per minute . . . depending on the
difficulty of the material.
At 1,000 words per minute, you'll be
able to read a text book like Hofstadtler's
American Political Tradition and finish
each chapter in 11 minutes.
At 2,000 words per minute, you'll be
.able to read a magazine like Time or News-


week and finish each page in 31 seconds.
At 3,000 words per minute, you'll be
able to read the 447 page novel The God-
father in 1 hour and 4 minutes.
These are documented statistics based
on the results of the 450,000 people who
have enrolled in the Evelyn Wood course
since its inception in 1959.
- The course isn't complicated. There
are no machines. There are no notes to
take. And you don't have to memorize any-
95% of our graduates have improved
their reading ability by an average of 4.7
times. On rare occasions, a graduate's read-
ing ability isn't improved by at least 3 times.
In these instances, the tuition is completely

Then take a free Mini-Lesson.M The
Mini-Lesson is an hour long peek at what
the Evelyn Wood course offers.
We'll show you how it's possible to
accelerate your speed without skipping a
single word. You'll have a chance to try your
hand at it, and before it's over, you'll actually
increase your reading speed. (You'll only
increase it a little, but it's a-start.)
We'll show you how we can extend your
memory. And we'll show you how we make
chapter outlining obsolete.
Take a Mini-Lesson this week. It's a
wild hour. And it's free.
