Navy rescues crew off hurricane-damaged sailboat


.ay JO1 A. MGilvray

While transiting to Guantanamo
Bay, Cuba for refresher training, the Norfolk-based amphibious command ship USS MOUNT WHITNEY (LCC-20) rescued two stranded yachtsmen, the victims of Hurricane Kate.
Levie Farguharson, 43, and
John Paul Foo Seca, 54, left Grand Inagua Island in the Bahamas Saturday night, November 16. Hurricane Kate struck the
51-foot Bay Sailor "PASSION"
just off Crooked Island on
Monday morning, November 18.
The sailboat flipped over
twice, losing her mast on the second roll. A merchant vessel,


the "SEA ROVER," received her distress signal. A Coast Guard C-130 search and rescue plane
was dispatched, and combed for eight hours before locating the vessel, approximately 125 nautical miles north of the eastern end of Cuba. According to OS2 Andrew Gentry, MOUNT WHITNEY'S Air Intercept Controller, radio
contact was made with the C-130 at approximately noon on Tuesday,, November 19.

He remained in radio contact with the plane, while 0S2 Brad Hamilton, operating a Navy Tactical Data System Console, assigned a Distressed Vessel


Symbol to the frequency provided
by the Coast Guard and tracked her for nine miles.

Once it was determined just how the rescue would be accomplished, Deck Department launched UB-5, battling sea swells over five feet. The crew consisted of: BM1 John Prince, EN3 Terry McWhirt, and Seaman Joe Brown. Also aboard were MOUNT WHITNEY'S Executive Officer, Cmdr. R. Wrobel; HMC Dave Hicks; and Lance Cpl. Brian Dobson.
The two battered seamen were examined by the ship's Medical
Department and rode the ship here.

No agreement on arms control or human rights


(AP) -- We are still talking to each other, but the United
States and Soviet Union have failed to reach any concrete agreement on arms control or human rights.
That is the gist of the statements made by President Reagan and Soviet Leader Mikhail


Gorbachev as they ended two days of summit talks in Geneva.
The two leaders released a joint statement and made separate speeches as they filled in the world on their private consultations.
Their joint statement says the discussions were frank and

useful.
They also admitted that Washington-and Moscow remain divided on the big issues of arms control, strategic defense and human rights.
Among their accomplishments were agreements to accelerate
the arms talks in Geneva and to hold more summits very soon. The president and the general secretary agreed to visit each other's country, but no dates have been set.
As part of the closing ceremony, the foreign minister of each country signed an agreement to intensify cultural exchanges, including the creation of new consulates in
Kiev and New York. This is the sort of agreement that had been contemplated before the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979,
but which was derailed by that event.
On the very biggest issues, there is nothing concrete.

Inquiry: A caller wanted to
know if the Harbor Patrol will continue from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. during the week and 24
hours a day on weekends?
Response: I have taken a
look at why we have the patrol and have decided to continue it as currently scheduled. The patrol is used to maintain security of the bay, ensure compliance of boating regulations and render assistance to boaters.
I believe there is a need to provide this service. I would like to remind boaters to call Port Services if they intend to remain on the bay after 10 p.m. Please call

Old submarine needs repair,

local sailors help fix her


By J02 Neil Guillebeau

A decommissioned American submarine's rudder locking device broke near Haiti while it was being towed, and after temporary repairs at sea, the two vessels docked here late Tuesday.
The two vessels were on a course to avoid Hurricane Kate. The Ex-SALMON (SS-573), a 350-foot twin-screwed attack submarine, was being towed from Panama to Norfolk by the USNS POWHATAN (T-ATF-166) when the sub's rudder device broke in three to four foot seas.
Gaining control of the crippled sub "was like roping a wild bull in a small room," said Lt. Cmdr. Mike Freeman, Executive Officer, Mobile-Diving Shop Two.
He is a special operations community diving and salvage officer stationed at Little Creek, Virginia, aboard the POWHATAN with an eight man unit to oversee the towing. The ship is crewed by civilians.
About the danger and difficulty of securing the sub, Freeman said, "We were using 4"x4" boards to chock the rudder, but the power of the water and rudder kept splintering the boards."
Through the danger and


difficulties, EMCS (SS) (DV) Peter Sykas was "instrumental in getting the rudder under control
and fabricating a temporary rudder locking device," said Freeman.
At pierside, workers from the Shore Intermediate Maintenance Activity (SIMA) here worked through the night to help repair the sub. According to Freeman, HT1 Steven Taylor, HT2 James Mason, and HTFR Donald Deckard did a "noteable job" helping the Little Creek unit fix the rudder.
Freeman also had words of praise for GSEC W. Howard Pepper, and Shop Two Alpha at SIMA. The workers in the shop worked Tuesday to fabricate parts for the sub before it arrived here, and they "really
helped us out," said Freeman. The SALMON's tow began at Pugent Sound Naval Ship Yard,
and it was towed by USS BOLSTER (ARS-38) for 27 days to Panama. Once the sub reaches Norfolk, it
will be used as a test platform for research and development of anti-submarine warfare techniques and equipment.
According to Freeman, the sub has been decommissioned about ten years.
The SALMON and POWHATAN departed here yesterday afternoon.

Halley's Comet


Once in a lifetime viewing, watch at Windmill Nov. 30

Charge, Naval Oceanographic Command Detachment. Guantanamo Bay has been designated as an official International Halley's Watch Chapter.
The program is under the auspices of the Jet Propulsion Lab, and the watch chapter here is sponsored locally by the Parent Teacher Organization and the Naval Base.
Windmill Beach will be the sight of the first official
Guantanamo Bay viewing. Several telescopes and "Big Eyes" from the-Marines will be set up for spectators to view the comet.

The watch will take place on Saturday, November 30, from 5 to 9 p.m. Lt. Whitehead says that if you have your own binoculars
or telescope, bring them along with you to the beach.

For those of you who want to see the comet, tonight it can be seen after sunset to the southeast about 50 degrees above the horizon, just below the constellation Perseus. The comet will move across the
sky like the moon and set about midnight.

He says the spring sighting will be spectacular, a once in a lifetime extravaganza.

Once again

By Lt. Mike bitehelad

ke was eight years old at the time, but Audley Marshall Stamreich was a fascinated viewer of the 1910 passage of Halley's Coumet. Born February 10, 1902 on Richmond Plantation in Natchez, Mississippi, she is the great, great granddaughter of Supreme Court Justice John Marshall and Isaac Selby, the first governor of Kentucky.
Late one spring night in 1910 her family gathered, via horseback and carriage, on the
banks of the Mississippi River to view Halley's Comet. For three hours they looked in awe across the river, viewing "an evening star the size of a silver dollar with a tail that went on and on." Although she rembers hearing that many people were frightened by this Pherncm to the point that "Comet Pills" were sold in large quantities to protect people against poison gasses, she and her faily were not afraid.
This little girl could only hold onto the memory, that Halleyas it hung in the sky, was simply "just beautiful."

What is a typical comet?


(Condensed from "Comet Halley Returns -- A Teacher's Guide," published by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.)

In the early 1950s, Dr. F.L. Whipple of the Harvard College
Observatory presented a picture of comets that, with some minor modifications, is accepted
today.
Whipple proposed that the nucleus is in effect a dirty iceberg, a large mass frozen water, and gasses, and other constituents, in which is embedded meteor-like solid particles of various sizes. When the nucleus is heated by the radiation of the sun, its ices sublime - that is, go from the solid state to the gaseous


state -- and as a result the nucleus is surrounded by a cloud of gas and the dust particles that were released. This cloud is the coma. The intense sunlight falling
on minute particles in the coma of a comet, when the comet is near the sun, pushes the dust particles out of the coma,
producing the comets tail which points "away from the sun."
A color picture of a comet shows the dust tail to be Yellowish, which is the color of sunlight reflected from the small particles.
The gas tail is blue, on the other hand, caused by
characteristic emissions of the iodized molecules present (predominately CO+).

Hartford Whalers. The Jets sent defenseman Dave Babych to
Hartford in exchange for right winger Ray Neufeld.

Murray Bannerman turned in
this eighth career shutout, as the Chicago Black Hawks blanked the Vancouver Canucks 2-0. Chicago's defense was outstanding, with Bannerman facing only 17 Vancouver shots on goal.

What better name than Wilder for a player taking the hard
knocks they dish out in pro football?
In this case it is James Wilder, the all-purpose running
back of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Wilder is a hard loser, and he has had to bite the bullet of defeat 10 times this year. Tampa Bay has only one victory.

This is Wilder's fifth year with the Buccaneers, and he is rated one of the toughest men in the league to bring down by the people who count, the opposing players.
He likes to run over people, and has the power, 225 pounds on a 6-foot-3 frame, to do it. He also goes outside on sweeps, with long strides that eat up turf, and he is an exceptional pass-catcher.

Wilder is not a household name
in the NFL, but he would be if he played for a contending team. He did make the pro bowl squad for the first time last year, and the chances are good he will be back for an encore in January.
His wife, Barbara, says he is a daredevil, and she is more afraid for him off the football field than on. Wilder, although not the boastful type, says, "I'lltry anything twice."
That remark surfaced after his first attempt at scuba diving.


He jumped into the water and panicked. James recalls that he
could not breathe, and he could not wait to get back on dry land.

After reaching the shore he began to think about it, and he
got angry. So he put the scuba diving equipment back on, and jumped back into the water. He likes it so much he now is taking lessons.
Last year he gained 2,229 total yards, to fall 16 yards short of Eric Dickerson's record. He pounded out 1,544
yards of that on the ground and added 685 overhead. Wilder played his college football at the University of Missouri, where he holds the
all-time rushing record with 2,616 yards.
James, Barbara, their daughter Courtney and son Chris live in Tampa, although husband and wife were born in Missouri.
He says that, until he signed with Tampa Bay he was a
meat-and-potatoes eater. Now he goes in heavily for Oysters,
squid, fish and, hold onto your knife and fork, alligator meat.
As a teenager he had an idol,
pro football star Larry Csonka, who played for Syracuse and later became a star running back
for the Miami Dolphins.
What Wilder liked about Csonka
was Larry's talent for running over tacklers. James has a lot of that, and he also is a much more dangerous pass receiver than Csonka ever was.


SPORTS WORLD w Best start f or Lakers as they whip Clippers


(AP) -- The Los Angeles Lakers are off to the best start in franchise history. "Magic" Johnson scored 22 points and added 20 assists, as the Lakers whipped the Los Angeles Clippers 122-107. Marques Johnson of the Clippers led all scorers with 34
points. The Lakers are 11-1, while the Clippers have lost seven straight.
Earlier in the day, the Clippers watched an offer sheet extended by the Seattle Supersonics to free agent guard Norm Nixon.
The Detroit Pistons whipped the New York Knicks 109-98, thanks to Kent Benson's seasonhigh 21 points. New York's Patrick Ewing sat out the game with a sprained ankle.
The Pistons also announced they have reached a compensation agreement with the Sacramento Kings for free agent forward Terry Tyler. The Kings signed Tyler to an offer sheet last Monday.
The Boston Celtics had balanced scoring in a 115-106 overtime win over the Utah Jazz. Larry Bird led the way with 27 points, while Robert Parish added 25, followed by Dennis Johnson and Kevin McHale who each scored 22 points.
Moses Malone scored 28 points, leading the Philadelphia 76ers to a 117-113 win over the Golden State Warriors. "Sleepy" Floyd led the Warriors with 27 points.
Despite the win, Sixers owner Harold Katz was fuming after the game. Katz said the team is "playing slow-motion basketball" and added "I'm skating to lose my patience." Sixers forward Charles Barkley responded by asking "Why doesn't he couch the team then?"
Houston's twin towers propelled the Rockets to a 126-97 win over the Indiana Pacers. Akeem Olajuwon scored 28 points, while Ralph Sampson added 26 for


the Rockets. Rookie Waymon Tisdale had a season-high 27 points for the Pacers. Atlanta's Dominique Wilkins scored 28 points in the Hawks' 116-101 win over the Chicago
Bulls.
Elsewhere, the Washington Bullets tripped the Cleveland Cavaliers 101-98. Milwaukee rolled to its fifth straight win, as the Bucks beat the Seattle Supersonics 116-106. The Phoenix Suns scored their second win of the season, in a 121-100 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.


The NBA has fined New Jersey Nets center Darryl Dawkins and Dallas Mavericks center Wallace
Bryant for fighting in a game at Dallas last Friday night. Dawkins was slapped with a $750 fine, while Bryant was fined $500.
NBA Commissioner David Ster6 has denied a request by the LcW Angeles Clippers to void a sixplayer trade with the Milwaukee Bucks. The Clippers wanted to set aside the 1985 deal, because they did not know Marques
Johnson had gone through a drug rehabilitation program.

The won and lost columns will show you that the Chicago Bears already have clinched a spot in the National Football League playoffs. Their record of 11 wins and no defeats enabled them to clinch the Central Division title of the NFC with five weeks to go.
The Bears have to worry about keeping their competitive edge for the remaining five weeks of the regular season and then an extra week of idleness in the opening round of the playoffs. As a division winner, the Bears will not see action until the second round.
There is one other thing, of course. The physical well-being of quarterback Jim McMahon, a flaming competitor but one who gets injured a lot. The Bears are a much, better team with McMahon at the throttle than with backup quarterback Steve Fuller. Yes, Fuller was the
quarterback in last week's 44-0 blowout of the Dallas Cowboys, but the Bears dominated Dallas so completely that all Steve had to do was put his helmet on.
The Bears reached the playoffs last year, but were chased out
by the San Francisco 49ers, who went on to win the Super Bowl. The Bears had Fuller at quarterback. McMahon was sidelined with a kidney injury.
The 49ers shut out the Bears in that game, and made them look
bad. The Chicago club, earlier this season, ran all over the 49ers, and in San Francisco, as well.

DAILY GAZETTE Guantanamo Bay, Cuba -U.S. Navy's only shore-based daily newspaper -Navy rescues crew off hurricane-damaged sailboat .y JO1 A. McGilvray While transiting to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for refresher training. the Norfolk-based amphibious command ship USS MOUNT WHITNEY (LCC-20) rescued two stranded yachtsmen, the victims of Hurricane Kate. Levie Farguharson, 43, and John Paul Foo Seca, 54, left Grand Inagua Island in the Bahamas Saturday night, November 16. Hurricane Kate struck the 51-foot Bay Sailor "PASSION" just off Crooked Island on Monday morning, November 18. The sailboat flipped over twice, losing her mast on the second roll. A merchant vessel, the "SEA ROVER," received her distress signal. A Coast Guard C-130 search and rescue plane was dispatched, and combed for eight hours before locating the vessel, approximately 125 nautical miles north of the eastern end of Cuba. According to OS2 Andrew Gentry, MOUNT WHITNEY'S Air Intercept Controller, radio contact was made with the C-130 at approximately noon on Tuesday, November 19. He remained in radio contact with the plane, while OS2 Brad Hamilton, operating a Navy Tactical Data System Console, assigned a Distressed Vessel Symbol to the frequency provided by the Coast Guard and tracked her for nine miles. Once it was determined just how the rescue would be accomplished, Deck Department launched UB-5, battling sea swells over five feet. The crew consisted of: BM1 John Prince, EN3 Terry McWhirt, and Seaman Joe Brown. Also aboard were MOUNT WHITNEY'S Executive Officer, Cmdr. R. Wrobel; HMC Dave Hicks; and Lance Cpl. Brian Dobson. The two battered seamen were examined by the ship's Medical Department and rode the ship here.

That is the gist of the statements made by President Reagan and Soviet Leader Mikhail Gorbachev as they ended two days of summit talks in Geneva. The two leaders released a joint statement and made separate speeches as they filled in the world on their private consultations. Their joint statement says the discussions were frank and A plane load of press and tours of the base. representatives arrived (Official U.S. Navy photo from America around 9 a.m. by J02 Neil Guillebemu) today for a day-long visit useful. They also admitted that Washington and Moscow remain divided on the big issues of arms control, strategic defense and human rights. Among their accomplishments were agreements to accelerate the arms talks in Geneva and to hold more summits very soon. The president and the general secretary agreed to visit each other's country, but no dates have been set. As part of the closing ceremony, the foreign minister of each country signed an agreement to intensify cultural exchanges, including the creation of new consulates in Kiev and New York. This is the sort of agreement that had been contemplated before the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, but which was derailed by that event. On the very biggest issues, there is nothing concrete. Capt. Condon'sOpen Line Followup Inquiry: A caller wanted to know if the Harbor Patrol will continue from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. during the week and 24 hours a day on weekends? Response: I have taken a look at why we have the patrol and have decided to continue it as currently scheduled. The patrol is used to maintain security of the bay, ensure compliance of boating regulations and render assistance to boaters. I believe there is a need to provide this service. I would like to remind boaters to call Port Services if they intend to remain on the bay after 10 p.m. Please call 4774.

While three to four foot seas. heading for Norfolk, the (Official U.S. Navy photo SALMON and tow ship had to by J02 Neil Guillebeau) Old submarine needs repair, local sailors help fix her By J02 Neil Guillebeau A decommissioned American submarine's rudder locking device broke near Haiti while it was being towed, and after temporary repairs at sea, the two vessels docked here late Tuesday. The two vessels were on a course to avoid Hurricane Kate. The Ex-SALMON (SS-573), a 350-foot twin-screwed attack submarine, was being towed from Panama to Norfolk by the USNS POWHATAN (T-ATF-166) when the sub's rudder device broke in three to four foot seas. Gaining control of the crippled sub "was like roping a wild bull in a small room," said Lt. Cmdr. Mike Freeman, Executive Officer, Mobile Diving Shop Two. He is a special operations community diving and salvage officer stationed at Little Creek, Virginia, aboard the POWHATAN with an eight man unit to oversee the towing. The ship is crewed by civilians. About the danger and difficulty of securing the sub, Freeman said, "We were using 4"x4" boards to chock the rudder, but the power of the water and rudder kept splintering the boards." Through the danger and difficulties, EMCS (SS) (DV) Peter Sykas was "instrumental in getting the rudder under control and fabricating a temporary rudder locking device," said Freeman. At pierside, workers from the Shore Intermediate Maintenance Activity (SIMA) here worked through the night to help repair the sub. According to Freeman, HT1 Steven Taylor, HT2 James Mason, and HTFR Donald Deckard did a "noteable job" helping the Little Creek unit fix the rudder. Freeman also had words of praise for GSEC W. Howard Pepper, and Shop Two Alpha at SIMA. The workers in the shop worked Tuesday to fabricate parts for the sub before it arrived here, and they "really helped us out," said Freeman. The SALMON's tow began at Pugent Sound Naval Ship Yard, and it was towed by USS BOLSTER (ARS-38) for 27 days to Panama. Once the sub reaches Norfolk, it will be used as a test platform for research and development of anti-submarine warfare techniques and equipment. According to Freeman, the sub has been decommissioned about ten years. The SALMON and POWHATAN departed here yesterday afternoon. Today is World Hello Day (AP) -Today is World Hello Day. If you did not know about Hello Day, you can ask Michael and Brian McCormack of Omaha, Neb., it is their idea. For 12 years, they have been getting celebrities, as well as just plain folks, to say hello. The brothers say that we can spread friendliness, and maybe even help world peace, by saying hello to 10 people we do not know. So, hello. Now it is up to you.

0 Once a Halley's Comet Once in a lifetime viewing, watch at Windmill Nov. 30 By J02 Neil Guillebeau Unless you are old enough to remember events from 1910 or young enough to be around in 2061, you will probably get the opportunity to see Halley's ,et only once in your life. he view of Halley from here 1 be "very good" said Lt. Mike Whitehead, Officer In Charge, Naval Oceanographic Command Detachment. Guantanamo Bay has been designated as an official International Halley's datch Chapter. The program is under the auspices of the Jet Propulsion Lab, and the watch chapter here is sponsored locally by the Parent Teacher Organization and the Naval Base. Windmill Beach will be the sight of the first official Guantanamo Bay viewing. Several telescopes and "Big Eyes" from the Marines will be set up for spectators to view the comet. A large fuzzy star The watch will take place on Saturday, November 30, from 5 to 9 p.m. Lt. Whitehead says that if you have your own binoculars or telescope, bring them along with you to the beach. The first sighting will not be very spectacular," said Whitehead, and "Halley will look like a large fuzzy star." According to Whitehead, a few people have claimed they have seen the comet with their naked He says it will be easier e in December. und the middle of January, the comet will disappear until about the end of February. Then, it will reappear in late February or early March, sprouting a tail that, according to Whitehead, will "continue to grow until the end of April. "It will most definitely be discernible with the naked eye Guantanamo Bay is an official International Halley's Watch Chapter, and there will be a gathering to view the comet at Windmill Beach Saturday, November 30, 5 to 9 p.m. in the spring," said Whitehead. For those of you who want to see the comet, tonight it can be seen after sunset to the southeast about 50 degrees above the horizon, just below the constellation Perseus. The comet will move across the sky like the moon and set about midnight. Although this sighting will not be very spectacular, according to Whitehead, he said we do want to "welcome back our old friend" and track it until it departs our view in April." T-shirts with Halley logos and certificates for Halley watchers explaining Guantanamo Bay as an International Halley's Watch Chapter will be on sale at Windmill Beach on November 30. When the comet reappears in the spring, we will, according to Whitehead, "set up another official watch at Windmill Beach." He says the spring sighting will be spectacular, a once in a lifetime extravaganza. (Right) Comet Halley as observed in 1986 by an observer located 20 degree north latitude.

Mike Whitehead She was eight years old at the time, but Audley Marshall Stamreich was a fascinated viewer of the 1910 passage of Halley's Comnet. Born February 10, 1902 on Richnond Plantation in Natchez, Mississippi, she is the great, great granddaughter of Supreme Court Justice John Marshall and Isaac Shelby, the first governor of Kentucky. Late one spring night in 1910 her family gathered, via horseback and carriage, on the banks of the Mississippi River to view Halley's Conet. For three hours they looked in awe across the river, viewing "an evening star the size of a silver dollar with a tail that went on and on." Although she renembers hearing that many people were frightened by this phenomenon to the point that "Canet Pills" were sold in large quantities to protect people against poison gasses, she and her family were not afraid.

When the nucleus is heated by the radiation of the sun, its ices sublime -that is, go from the solid state to the gaseous state -and as a result the nucleus is surrounded by a cloud of gas and the dust particles that were released. This cloud is the coma. The intense sunlight falling on minute particles in the coma of a comet, when the comet is near the sun, pushes the dust particles out of the coma, producing the comets tail which points "away from the sun." A color picture of a comet shows the dust tail to be yellowish, which is the color of sunlight reflected from the small particles. The gas tail is blue, on the other hand, caused by characteristic emissions of the iodized molecules present (predominately CO+).

Oilers defeat Canadians 5-4 (AP) -There were five games in the NHL last night. At the Forum in Montreal, Mark Messier scored in the first minute of overtime, giving the Edmonton Oilers a 5-4 win over the Canadians. The Winnipeg Jets knocked off St. Louis 3-1. Jets goalie Brian Hayward turned aside 35 of 36 shots on goal by the Norris Division-leading Blues. After the game, the Jets announced a trade with the Hartford Whalers. The Jets sent defenseman Dave Babych to Hartford in exchange for right winger Ray Neufeld. Murray Bannerman turned in this eighth career shutout, as the Chicago Black Hawks blanked the Vancouver Canucks 2-0. Chicago's defense was outstanding, with Bannerman facing only 17 Vancouver shots on goal. The Canucks have not won at Chicago Stadium since January 26, 1983. Craig Laughlin scored two goals as the Washington Capitols beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1. With the win, the Caps continued their mastery over Pittsburgh. Washington owns a 15-0-1 record over the Penguins, since last losing to Pittsburgh October 13, 1983. Bob Brooke had the hat trick, firing three goals in the New York Ranger's 7-3 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Detroit Red Wings say defenseman Harold Snepts is out at least three weeks. Snepts underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday. The Minnesota North Stars have called up goaltender Jon Casey from their Springfield, Mass., farm club. He replaces the injured Rollie Melanson. NSGA/CO"L" soccer champs By A. Del Valle Guantanamo Bay' s first Intercommand Soccer Season has come to an end. After a few very tense last days the regular season ended with NSGA/CO"L" as champions and NAVSTA White in the runner-up position. Coming into the playoffs the standings were as follows: (1) NSGA/CO"L", (2) NAVSTA White, (3) PWD Utilities, (4) W.T. Sampson and (5) Marine Barracks. The playoffs were filled with close games as well as upsets. On Tuesday, November 12, the playoffs commenced. The first game started the playoffs with an overtime game in which NAVSTA White defeated Marine Barracks 3-1. The second game of the night also resulted in PWD Utilities dropped out of the tournament, an action which automatically moved Marine Barracks into the next day of competition. On the same night though, the W.T. Sampson team upset NSGA/CO"L" 1-0. By now W.T. Sampson had upset the number three and the number one team and had put themselves in the winners bracket semi finals. Thursday, November 14 was an exciting night. The winners bracket semi finals was decided with NAVSTA White defeating W.T. Sampson 5-2. This night would decide who would represent GTMO at the Tidewater Navy Soccer Championship to be held at Little Creek, Va. NSGA/CO"L" posted a 7-3 win in overtime to be the first team that represents GTMO in the named tournament. On Friday, November 15, W.T. Sampson again defeated NSGA/CO"L" this time 2-1. This game eliminated NSGA/CO"L" and advanced W.T. Sampson into the finals. The finals came on Saturday, November 16. NAVSTA White defeated W.T. Sampson 5-2 to win the Intercommand Soccer playoffs. Congratulations for your success and good luck next year! By Charles Morey What better name than Wilder for a player taking the hard knocks they dish out in pro football? In this case it is James Wilder, the all-purpose running back of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Wilder is a hard loser, and he has had to bite the bullet of defeat 10 times this year. Tampa Bay has only one victory. This is Wilder's fifth year with the Buccaneers, and he is rated one of the toughest men in the league to bring down by the people who count, the opposing players. He likes to run over people, and has the power, 225 pounds on a 6-foot-3 frame, to do it. He also goes outside on sweeps, with long strides that eat up turf, and he is an exceptional pass-catcher. Wilder is not a household name in the NFL, but he would be if he played for a contending team. He did make the pro bowl squad for the first time last year, and the chances are good he will be back for an encore in January. His wife, Barbara, says he is a daredevil, and she is more afraid for him off the football field than on. Wilder, although not the boastful type, says, "I'll try anything twice." That remark surfaced after his first attempt at scuba diving. He jumped into the water and panicked. James recalls that he could not breathe, and he could not wait to get back on dry land. After reaching the shore he began to think about it, and he got angry. So he put the scuba diving equipment back on, and jumped back into the water. He likes it so much he now is taking lessons. Last year he gained 2,229 total yards, to fall 16 yards short of Eric Dickerson's record. He pounded out 1,544 yards of that on the ground and added 685 overhead. Wilder played his college football at the University of Missouri, where he holds the all-time rushing record with 2,616 yards. James, Barbara, their daughter Courtney and son Chris live in Tampa, although husband and wife were born in Missouri. He says that, until he signed with Tampa Bay he was a meat-and-potatoes eater. Now he goes in heavily for oysters, squid, fish and, hold onto your knife and fork, alligator meat. As a teenager he had an idol, pro football star Larry Csonka, who played for Syracuse and later became a star running back for the Miami Dolphins. What Wilder liked about Csonka was Larry's talent for running over tacklers. James has a lot of that, and he also is a much more dangerous pass receiver than Csonka ever was. SPORTSWORLD Best start for Lakers as they whip Clippers (AP) -The Los Angeles Lakers are off to the best start in franchise history. "Magic" Johnson scored 22 points and added 20 assists, as the Lakers whipped the Los Angeles Clippers 122-107. Marques Johnson of the Clippers led all scorers with 34 points. The Lakers are 11-1, while the Clippers have lost seven straight. Earlier in the day, the Clippers watched an offer sheet extended by the Seattle Supersonics to free agent guard Norm Nixon. The Detroit Pistons whipped the New York Knicks 109-98, thanks to Kent Benson's seasonhigh 21 points. New York's Patrick Ewing sat out the game with a sprained ankle. The Pistons also announced they have reached a compensation agreement with the Sacramento Kings for free agent forward Terry Tyler. The Kings signed Tyler to an offer sheet last Monday. The Boston Celtics had balanced scoring in a 115-106 overtime win over the Utah Jazz. Larry Bird led the way with 27 points, while Robert Parish added 25, followed by Dennis Johnson and Kevin McHale who each scored 22 points. Moses Malone scored 28 points, leading the Philadelphia 76ers to a 117-113 win over the Golden State Warriors. "Sleepy" Floyd led the Warriors with 27 points. Despite the win, Sixers owner Harold Katz was fuming after the game. Katz said the team is "playing slow-motion basketball" and added "I'm skating to lose my patience." Sixers forward Charles Barkley responded by asking "Why doesn't he couch the team then?" Houston's twin towers propelled the Rockets to a 126-97 win over the Indiana Pacers. Akeem Olajuwon scored 28 points, while Ralph Sampson added 26 for the Rockets. Rookie Waymon Tisdale had a season-high 27 points for the Pacers. Atlanta's Dominique Wilkins scored 28 points in the Hawks' 116-101 win over the Chicago Bulls. Elsewhere, the Washington Bullets tripped the Cleveland Cavaliers 101-98. Milwaukee rolled to its fifth straight win, as the Bucks beat the Seattle Supersonics 116-106. The Phoenix Suns scored their second win of the season, in a 121-100 victory over the San Antonio Spurs. The NBA has fined New Jersey Nets center Darryl Dawkins and Dallas Mavericks center Wallace Bryant for fighting in a game at Dallas last Friday night. Dawkins was slapped with a $750 fine, while Bryant was fined $500. NBA Commissioner David Sterf has denied a request by the LoW Angeles Clippers to void a sixplayer trade with the Milwaukee Bucks. The Clippers wanted to set aside the 1985 deal, because they did not know Marques Johnson had gone through a drug rehabilitation program.

The won and lost columns will show you that the Chicago Bears already have clinched a spot in the National Football League playoffs. Their record of 11 wins and no defeats enabled them to clinch the Central Division title of the NFC with five weeks to go. The Bears have to worry about keeping their competitive edge for the remaining five weeks of the regular season and then an extra week of idleness in the opening round of the playoffs. As a division winner, the Bears will not see action until the second round. There is one other thing, of course. The physical well-being of quarterback Jim McMahon, a flaming competitor but one who gets injured a lot. The Bears are a much, better team with McMahon at the throttle than with backup quarterback Steve Fuller. Yes, Fuller was the quarterback in last week's 44-0 blowout of the Dallas Cowboys, but the Bears dominated Dallas so completely that all Steve had to do was put his helmet on. The Bears reached the playoffs last year, but were chased out by the San Francisco 49ers, who went on to win the Super Bowl. The Bears had Fuller at quarterback. McMahon was sidelined with a kidney injury. The 49ers shut out the Bears in that game, and made them look bad. The Chicago club, earlier this season, ran all over the 49ers, and in San Francisco, as well. Daily Gazette Thursday, November 21, 1985 The Sportsman I
