Sports of the Dall
Hide and seek
The Michigan Sports Information Department has no new
information concerning the Wolverine basketball's team's trip to
Egypt. The only semblance of a report received over the week-
end was a dispatch to the State department from Bangui, the capi-
tal city of the Central African Republic, that the team would
be visiting there later this month.
Prior to leaving Ann Arbor the team had made no plans to
visit either Bangui or any other city in the Contral African Re-
public. Both the State Department and the Sports Information
Department were confused by the dispatch.
Tum pane 'de-canonized'
The New Orleans Saints of the National Football League cut
seven players yesterday, including rookie tackle Pat Tumpane.
Tumpane was a starting offensive tackle for Michigan's 1974 Big
Ten co-championship football team.
Too much bread

STORRS; Conn. - A would-be football player at the Unlver-
;, sity of Connecticut won't be playing this season because he fol-
lowed his coach's instructions to the letter.
Y_ At the end of spring practice, Coach Larry Naviaux en-
couraged Bob Chauvin of Leominster, Miss., to get a sum-
mer job that would build up his strength and at the same time,
be financially rewarding.
Chauvin, entering his sophomore year, moved in with an
uncle in Anchorage, Alaska, got a job as an assistant bricklayer
and is earning so much money he decided not to return for fall
AP Photo football camp.
"I am making over $600 per week and by returning home in
time to get in shape for camp I would lose about four week's
rday. Or- pay; and I must think of financing first," Chauvin told Naviaux
o win the in a letter.

THREE GAMES, AHEAD:

Forbes case dismissed
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. WP) - Hennepin County Atty. Gary
Flakne said today he will not seek a second trial of Boston Bruins
hockey player David Forbes on an aggravated assault charge.
Flakne said he felt fully justified in bringing the case to
trial.
"I feel that the jury said loud and clear that they do not feel
that an athlete involved in an athletic contest should be exempt
from the criminal laws," Flakne said "I wholeheartedly agree
with that position."

Pirates stretch lead

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA - Pittsburgh left-
hander John Candelaria limited
Atlanta to four hits in six in-
nings and Manny Sanguillen

ninth inning with a two-run dou-
ble last night as the Pirates
bombed the Braves 8-1.
The victory halted a five-
game Pittsburgh losing streak.
Candelaria, 6-2, didn't allow a
Braves runner past second base
before leaving the game at the
end of the sixth inning after de-
veloping a blister on his finger.
He was replaced by Kent Te-
kulve who surrendered a home
run to Darrell Evans, his 19th
of the year, in the eighth.

victory over the Philadelphia
Phillies last night.
T h e Dodgers posted their
fourth consecutive victory in the
nationally televised b a s e b a Itl
