I hope others will demonstrate a positive attitude in this respect. I believe in Tangipahoa Parish (and all the Florida Parishes) and the people living here. When all act together, there is no limit to the good that can be accomplished. Because of the great early and positive public awareness and sup- port of this project your paper has helped create, I am forwarding to you a copy of correspondence I recently received from Dr. Mohanty. I believe you will agree that, to quote your article, "Quiet progress is being made., " 1 am happy to play a small role in helping TangJpahoa Parish in secur ing the location of the World Medical Center that will provide both re- search facilities and Medical Doctor Degrees. l'm glad your paper has demonstrated the same attitude.

Under the first year coach Danny Dufrehe, the Lions tackle a rugged schedule with just 10 returning lettermen. "We're going to be a little better than we thought at first, but we're still very inexperienced on the mound," Dufreche pointed out. "However, we hope to utilize our speed and defense to offset some of the lack of experience." "The fact that we don't have any seniors on our roster emphasizes our youth," the new Lion coach pointed out. / Key returnees for the Lions include outfielder Kurt Griffon and catcher/outfielder Andy Allain. Griffon, a sophomore, led the team last year with a .313 average. Allain hit .307 and in just two years has established a school record for career home runs with 24. Four other starters return including sophomore outfielder Darren Raspino, who led the team in stolen bases a year ago; third baseman Max Lewis, second baseman Brent Dugas and catcher Mike Hymel, a top gloveman with a strong arm. Bruce Thompson, a back-up behind the plate a year ago and also a designated hitter, has been shifted to first this spring. Reserve players Shane McCrory and Scott Perrilloux are also back. The inexperience shows on th-e mound where only one veteran--" sophomore lefthander Darryl Powell--is back. 1 p.m. Pineville 1:30 Baton Roue 1 p.m. HAMMOND 1 p.m. Lake Charles 1 p.m. New Orleans 1 p.m. HAMMOND \\; 1 p.m. Baton Rouge 1 p.m. Mobile, Ala.
