Most Valuable Smile
Why is this man smiling? Because he is Willis Reed, New York Knick center, and yesterday he was
named most valuable player in the recently completed NBA championships by Sport Magazine. For
Reed, it was the second time around and' no one else has done that.

thrive on trying to make other
people miserable."
"I can't do anything about the
mail," said Aaron, here with
the Braves for a series with the
Houston Astros. "I'd say that
the ratio is 60-40, that 60 per
cent of it is of a racist nature.
"It's very offensive. They call
me 'nigger' and every other bad
word you can come up with."
The Braves have a fulltime
secretary in charge of Aaron's
mail, which is increasing as he
gets closer to the record. And
Hank reads it all.
But why read such letters and
postcards?
"That's a good question, he
said. "I don't know why. Except
I always have, from the very
start of my, career. You get a
piece of mail and you have to
read it. I want to look at my
own mail. I want to read what
people are writing . . . what they
think."
Aaron doesn't like the slurs
he receives through the mail,
but they won't deter him from
his quest for the Babe's record.
"You can't ignore them," Aa-
ron said. "They are here. But
this is just the way things are
for black people in America. It's
something you battle all of your
life.-
He obvio'sly wants the record.
"I'd be lying if I said I didn't,"
he said.
