Illinois coach Bartow

expects
URBANA, Ill. (A') - Coach
Gene Bartow says if fans give
him the time, he will build the
Illinois basketball team into a
Big Ten and, possibly, national
contender.
"Naturally we think we can
win, and may be win big this
year," said the former head
coach at Memphis State. "But
you've got to be realistic. They
(the Mlini) won five games last
year."
Bartow, 43, was named head
coach in March, replacing Harv
Schmidt, who was fired primar-
ily for failing to recruit black
players.
Bartow made some impres-
sive catches on his first try.
His biggest was Audie Mat-
thews, who was named to sev-
eral All-America high school
squads as a 6-foot-4 forward
from Chicago Heights Bloom.
"Matthews was one of the
top four or five high school
players in the country," Bar-
tow said. "He's probably not
going to jump in and domi-
nate any league, but he can
very definitely contribute to
our program here"
Hartow said Matthews was
sought by more than 300 col-
leges and narrowed the choices
to three-Illinois, Purdue and
UCILA.
I think we wore kind of a
ntral for Audio.' he added.
'We're 100 miles or so from
Chicago Heights. and I think he
wants to give the people back
there a chance to see him play.
I think he's the type of a guy
who wants to be part of a build-
ing program."
Returning to the Illinois
squad will be Rick Schmidt,
whose 21-point average at for-
ward last year put him third
in Big Ten scoring, and Otho
Tucker, a 6-foot-6 guard who
sat out last season with an
injury.

"I think we'll be able to con-
tend in a year or two or three,"
Bartow said. "We're not that
fa r from being a contender
now. But I think we have to be
realistic about our chances. A
good year will mean 14, 15, 16
wins in 26 games."
Bartow's first year at Illinois
puts him in much the some po-
sition as when he started at
Memphis State. Illinois was 5-18
last year and 2-12 and last in
the Big Ten. Memphis State
was 6-20 the year before Bar-
tow took over, but lie led them
to an 18-8 mark the next year.
Hawks sign two
ATLANTA (A') - G u a r d
Tom Henderson of Hawaii and
center Mike Sojourner of Utah,
both first-round college draft
choices of the Atlanta Hawks,
signed multiyear contracts with
the NBA team yesterday.
Henderson, 6 feet 3 and 195
pounds, was the seventh play-
er selected in the NBA draft.
lHe was a member of the 1972
U.S. Olympic squad and last
year at Hawaii averaged 20.3
points per game.

)rogress
The Hawks were able to pick
Sojourner, the 10th player cho-
sen in the draft, because they
had acquired New Orleans'
first-round selection as part of
a deal that sent Pete Maravich
to the Jazz.
Sojourner, 6-8 and 220 pounds,
averaged 17 points and 13.4 re-
bounds as a sophomore last
year. He was eligible in the
NBA draft as a hardship case.
Dark a Knick
NEW YORK (P) - G u a r d
Jesse Dark of Virginia Com-
monwealth, the New York
Knicks' top draft choice, hat
signed a multi-year contract
with the NBA team, General
Manager-Coach Red Holzman
announced yesterday.
Dark averaged 23.1 points
per game last season in leading
Virginia Commonwealth to a
17-7 record.

Next time you see
someone polluting,
poin it out.
It's a spewing smokestack. It's litter
in the streets. It's a river where fish
can't live.
You know what pollution is.
But not everyone does.
So the next time you see pollution,,
don't close your eyes to it.
Write a letter. Make a call. Point it
out to someone who can do something
about it.
People start pollution. People can stop it.
