    That's Bill Werber - died at 100 today. Former baseball and basketball player at Duke University - first Duke basketball All-America. Connected to a well-kown athletic family in the Duke/Durham area. His daughter, Susie, later became Duke head cheerleader in the late 60s. Susie married Dan Hill III, captain of the Duke golf team, who was the son of Dan Hill Jr., former Duke football player, member of the Iron Dukes football team and the College Football Hall of Fame. Both of Susie and Dan's sons later played golf at Duke as well. Dan is also my insurance agent here in Durham. My thoughts go out to them and I'll talk to them in a few days. Never got to meet Mr. Werber but he was apparently quite a character.
