Page Twelve Tankers: losers? By JERRY WORKER** REED Nelson Rockefeller ain’t poor Patty Hearst is still mis- sing and Muhammad Ali isn’t bashful. Everyone knows these things. However how many people know that Carlton cigarettes are lowest in tar and nicotine Baskin-Robbins has 31 different flavors and milk is not for everybody. Closer to home how many people know that the Ft. Hood Tankers have a great basketball team? I don’t reckon there’s too many. Grandpa once told me as part of some home-spun philosophy that everybody loves a winner. I don’t want to show disrespect to my elders but he’s a liar. Well if Ft. Hood’s any indication gramps went and told me a falsehood. The simple truth is Ft. Hood fans don’t seem to like winners much less love them. Each week I’m paid to re- port the games of the Ft. Hood Tankers but it seems that few folks believe my prose. Shucks I almost feel ashamed to pick up my pay check. All season long I ’ve been informing people how good the Tankers really a...

Friday January 10 1975 By JERRY REED Sports Editor Slowly but surely the Ft. Hood ankers are losing weight. In fact in just the last two weeks the team has lost 568 pounds. N aturally coach Willie Jones is most concerned. Jones has plenty of room to be worried. Here’s what’s transpired: First the Tankers’ top two scorers Kenny Levergne and Eddie Brown have departed to join the All-Army Team in San Francisco. Secondly Cliff Johnson a starting forward has apparently been dismissed from the squad. Jones’ problems don’t stop there. Two other players William Jinx’ Jones and Larry Miles are still ques- tionable members of the post team. Levergne who hits the scale at 185 pounds is the leading point-producer on the team with a 25.4 scoring average and Brown at 190 pounds and 19.8 points-per-game is also a big concern for Jones but the absence of Johnson perhaps looms as a bigger problem. Jo so a 193-pound forward has reportedly been held back from participation on the squad from his unit b...

Page Four-A Dear Editor: Last Saturday after having spent many boring and dismal Saturday afternoons I decided to do something different. I went to a Tanker basketball game. I missed the first half of the game but what I saw in the second half caught me by sur- prise. Those guys were really good. The Tankers came from behind and played a very sportsman like (even when they were antagonized) and exciting game. For the other people on post like myself who find it hard to come up with money a week or so after pay day and find most things around the barracks boring may I suggest one dose of a Tanker basketball game. I’m not sure when the next game is scheduled but I’ll be there. By the way why aren’t there some more games played during the week? A New Basketball Fan EDITOR’S NOTE: First we appreciate your letter con- cerning the Ft. Hood basket- ball team.

While this j) in itself might not be surpris- 4ng with recent inclement weather conditions this first sighting was perhaps three a j^weeks ago on a beautiful 70- K^degree day.
