Brock eyes SB record

Can he break the record of
104 stolen bases in one season?
Maury Wills thinks "he can
do it."
The "he" is Lou Brock of the
St. Louis Cardinals, who is
ahead of Wills' own record-
setting pace of 1962, when the
former Dodger shrtstop (now an
NBC sportscaster) set the stolen
base mark at 104-breaking the
old standard of Ty Cobb's 96.
which was established way back
in 1915.
LOU HIMSELF says, "Fans
can spur players on in situa-
tions like this. Sometimes they
challenge the player, especially
if they egg him on. The adren-
alin starts to flow." Otherwise
Lou, at this point, is calm about
challenging for Wills' record.
Though Lou is 22 games ahead
of Maury's 1962 pace-through
Sunday, July 14, Brock had
stolen 56 bases in 88 games,
compared to Maury's 56 SB in
110 games-his chore figures
to get tougher as the season
goes into the final third. In '62,
Wills stole 48 bases in his last
55 games.
BROCK SAYS, "The record
would be a great achievement
for anyone. But you have to
take into consideration the im-
portance of each game. You
must be able to rise to the
.occasion and meet the chal-

Wills says Brock is "the
youngest 35-year old I've ever
seen. Be's just as young at
35 as I was at 30. Players take
better care of themselves today.
They stay in condition all year
'round and use Spring Training
to tone themselves and get their
timing, instead of getting into
shape. Lou has always taken
care of himself. Ile is in great
Maury cites one thing about
Brock's going for the record.
"If Ted Sizemore is out for any
length of time, that could hurt
Lou. I had Jim Gilliam batting
behind me and having a batter
of that type helps you in steal-
ing bases."
LOU ALSO HAS a shot at be-
coming the all-time base stealer
in National League history.
Through July 14, Brock has
stolen 691 bases in his career.
Ie was fifth all-time at the
start of the season. The current
N.L. mark is 738, held by Max
Carey, which was established
from 1910-29. Wills stole 586 in
a 14-year National League
career. He's sixth on the all-
time list.

LOU BROCK, the biggest name in theft since John Dillinger, was up to his old tricks again
Tuesday night in the All-Star game. Here, while Oakland shortstop Bert Campaneris watches
helplessly, Brock begins his triumphant slide into second, just before Squatty Munson's throw
skipped by Campaneris and allowed Brock to take third. At least Bill Freehan would have held
on to the ball.

Gervin freed on bail
YPSILANTI-Anerican Basketball Association star George
Gervin was released yesterday after his arrest Thursday night
cn a charge of carrying a concealed weapon.
A preliminary examination was set for July 31 in Chelsea,
Mich., before District Judge Thomas Shea.
Gervin, 22, was picked up by Ypsilanti police Thursday
night after officers were summoned when gunshots were heard
in an apartment building.
Police said they arrested the 6-foot-7 Gervin as he got into
his car. Gervin admitted firing four or five shots from a window
in the apartment building, police said.
Gervin spent the night in jail in lieu of a $1,500 bond, which
was posted yesterday afternoon.
A former standout athlete at Eastern Michigan University,
Gervin was suspended from the Huron basketball squad in
March, 1972, after he hit an opponent during a game.
He signed with the Virginia Squires of the ABA in the middle
if the 1972-73 season, and averaged 14.1 points a game as an
ABA rookie. He was sold last January to San Antonio for a
reported $225,000.
Jones, of Indiana, pleads innocent
BLOOMINGTON - Indiana University quarterback Willie
lanes pleaded innocent yesterday to a charge of visiting a
common nuisance.
The arraignment of IU defensive end Maurice Osborne,
charged with delivery of a controlled substance, was postponed
suntil next week.
Both were arrested Thursday after state police undercover,
agents raided Osborne's apartment near the IU football
Osborne, of Louisville, Ky., was charged in connection with
the sale of cocaine to an undercover agent. Jones, of Memphis,
Tenn., was visiting Osborne's apartment when the state police
search warrant was executed, agents said.
Parseghian cites fair hearings
SOUTH BEND-Notre Dame Coach Ara Parseghian said yes-
terday that the dismissal of six Irish football players came after
a "fair, full hearing."
"They broke a rule. I was hopeful that the penalty wouldn't
be so severe. But a student did the same thing last year and he
was dismissed. So precedent was established.
"That's the way it is here. Athlete or non-athlete, it doesn't
matter. We have rules. Everybody is treated alike."
The expulsion loss of defensive end Ross Bornwer, safety
Luther Bradley, defensive end Willie Fry and running back Al
hunter, followed serious injuries suffered by running back Eric
Penick, guard Steve Quehl and defensive back Tim Simon.
Parseghian said he had the general feeling the athletes want
to serve their suspensions and reapply for admission which would
be no earlier than the fall of 1975.

It was the fifteenth time the
band had played that number
today, and Herman VanDer-
Zee was upset. Those twice-
cursed obbligatos, that ca-
denza which never seemed to
end, and the doe-eyed clar-
inetist who shrieked on the
high notes, made him wish
the g****m team was going to
lose every game they played.
They wouldn't, of course.

pitched forward into the dirt.
He swallowed. It tasted good.

Criminal Law.
If those words intrigue you,
you're reading the right ad.

For the first time, The Institute
,for Paralegal Training is offering
a course in Criminal Law.
Lawyer's Assistants who
graduate from this particular
course will be working in
District Attorney's offices,
Defender Associations, and
state and federal offices of the
Justice Department, doing
challenging, responsible work
that will enable them to put their
intelligence to some meaning-
ful use at a good starting salary.
The course is thirteen weeks
long and delves heavily into all
aspects of Criminal Law--
both the defense and the
prosecution-all the way from
constitutional rights and
limitations through post-trial
appeal. We think it will be a
siper course.
Requirements for entrance
include a Bachelor's Degree

and a good college record.
As a student at the Institute,
you would be spending three
months in Philadelphia studying
with lawyers who practice in
the criminal field.
We can't tell you evertyhing
about a career as a Lawyer's
Assistant here. But we'll
forward the appropriate
information on request. There's
a session starting in the fall, so
why not mail the coupon today?
