No clear leaders in baseball
By Jeff Taebel and L. Kent Wolgamott
With 25 games remaining in the torrid 1978 regular
season, all four division races have become too close to
In the American League East, Boston's seemingly in
surmountable lead has dwindled to only five games be
cause they have cooled off considerably from their
season long .700 pace.
Under new manager Bob Lemon, the New York Yank
ees have avoided disaster and are now playing up to pre
season expectations. Led by 20 game winner Ron Guidry,
and assisted by the resurgence of relievers Sparky Lyle
and Rich Gossage, the Yankees seem to be in position to
give the Red Sox a strong challenge for the division title.
Milwaukee, Baltimore and Detroit seem to be out of
the running, which is unfortunate as all three would be
leading the American League West with their records.
In the West, Kansas City and California trade the divi
sion lead on an almost daily basis, with neither team play
ing well enough to draw away from the other.
The expected six team dogfight for the division crown
has turned into a battle of mediocrity with five of the
divisions's seven teams wallowing below the .500 mark.
The National League East race has become interesting
in a hurry due to the rampaging Pittsburgh Pirates, who
have won 19 of their last 22 games.
The division leading Phillies, who have the worst record
of any of baseball's division leaders, have lacked a strong
challenger so far, but the Pirates seem prepared to change
this situation. The Cubs remain in striking distance four
The National League West race seems to have boiled
down to a two team battle between Los Angeles and San
Francisco. Cincinnati's sliding Big Red Machine will be

Budget cut reduces
Love Library funds
By Cindy Coglianese
What would you do with $1.3 million? Would you buy
new cars, a vila in southern France or investments?
Love Library doesn't have to imagine they have $1.3
million, they have it. But according to Gerald Rudolph,
dean of libraries, that figure is not close to what they
need. Rudolph said the dollar figure should be closer to
A one and a half percent cut from the university's
budget will result in a $25,000 cut for library use. And
Rudolph said another $150,000 to $200,000 in pur
phasing power has been lost over last year due to the
reduced budget and inflation.
According to Rudolph, 57 percent of the budget will
be used to renew periodicals and 16 percent will be
available for specific requests. The request monies are
divided evenly between the faculty members and the
librarians who usually make the book buying decisions.
Rudolph said student input for specific books usually
emerges through faculty members or librarians.
"It is remarkable that not much money is available
for special requests," Rudolph said.
A portion of the budgeted $1.3 million will be used
to replace solen or vandalized books. Rudolph claimed
Love Library and C. Y. Thompson Library are major
areas for stolen or vandalized books. Before the new
security system was installed at Love Library, about
25,000 books were stolen per year Rudolph said.
Rudolph said he considers stealing or vandalizing
library materials as theft of the state. He said both
legal and university action can be taken against an indi
vidual for misuse of the properties.
Rudolph also said that all copy machines in the
libraries have been changed from Xerox to IBM. Rudolph
said the IBM machines will be easier to repair. More copy
machines may be possible depending on the use of the
machines. Rudolph said nearly one million copies were
made last year from the machines.
