Section A-Page Eight. - EL PASO HERALD-POST, Saturday, June 1,1974 The Missouri Valley Makes Move For Football Prestige ByPETECICCARELU HeraW-Posi Spcrtsvvriter LAS CBUCES, N.M. — Ever since David felled Goliath with history's first duly recorded knockdown pitch the confrontations between giants and lilliputians have replenished annals of literature worldwide. Here in this farm-shrouded southwest community this week another major assault on the well-endowed is being meticulously prepared as a rapidly diminishing "core group" of universities, banned together in the Missouri Valley Conference, hold what has now taken on more "than the proportions of just another country picnic", as one delegate so aptly phrases. The "Napoleon" of this armament is no little man to be sure, although MVC Commissioner Mickey Holmes resembles a Walt Disney character all grown up. jMaa^MMl^ ._ _ _ ._ , ^^ Fighting An Age-Old Battle When Ammo Is Low "UNLESS SOMEONE drowns in the pool before we break camp Saturday afternoon I'd have to say these meetings have been the most successful discussions the •'Valley has conducted in years," Holmes, an enterprising and charming leader confides. "There are really no surprises in these meetings because everyone knew when they got here Tuesday that this would be an important week. We can no longer maintain a Status quo, it's either time to advance ... or, retreat. I don't back up very well." Holmes began the meetings by taking roll, a sometimes useless task which became vitally important to the MVC this week. St. Louis University, a 37-year member of the MVC, answered its call only out of etiquette and on the institution's first stand on the floor school officials announced their withdrawal from the conference. "There was no surprise behind St. Louis' move," Helmes indicates. "The past several years their only sports were baseball and basketball in 'Valley competition. The school's two biggest sports are soccer and hockey. Maybe they waited to announce their decision until they came here so they could make one last check of Pan American Center for a hockey rink." "Our association with the Missouri Valley Conference has been both profitable and fruitful," SL athletic director Larry Alus says. "It simply came down to black and white. We may look for another conference affiliation where we can more successfully market eur positive aspects like hockey and soccer." ST. LOUIS' DEPARTURE, coming on the heals of Memphis State's withdrawal last spring, reduces the MVC to ,a "core group of eight members" Holmes maintains. "The 'Valley stretches from Louisville, Ky. to Las Cruces and there are some pretty strong schools in between which could strengthen our conference. We've been contacted by some schools and we're definitely interested in furthering discussions. We plan to expedite this matter and although we're far from panic over our membership we still are seriously concerned by the situation." Current members of the Mo- Val include meetings' host New Mexico State, Bradley, Drake, Louisville, North Texas State, Tulsa, West Texas State and Wichita State. Among applicants most seriously discussed for expansion are Southern Illinois, Cincinnati, Southern Mississippi and Florida Stat». It is the presence of the latter two schools on Holmes' secretive expansion list which stir up the most deliberations in Valley meetings. "Let's face it," the boyishly red-headed commissioner laments, "if we're going to go big we've got to do it with football. Sure several of our schools have turned a profit on their basketball program but those cases are few and unfortunately far between. Bradley (a school without football) has done exceptionally well in basketball but they can afford it under their circumstances. At many institutions football must underwrite other activities and that's the way it is with us. Many of our schools must meet rapidly increasing expenses with a diminishing revenue. It's time we started working for ourselves and the national recognition football can bring us will aid our conference." THE "BIG TIME" image of football in the Valley actually began a year ago when floundering North Texas State hired deposed Southern Methodist coach Hayden Fry. "I wouldn't have taken the North Texas job if the school officials hadn't indicated an interest in furthering its athletic program," Fry contends. "To start an athletic program you begin with football ... the 'moneymaker'," he adds without attempting to conceal a special reverence. "Now is the time for the MVC to make its move in football," Holmes observes. "With the NCAA 30-man limitations on recruiting our schools are now exposed to a girth of talent they've never seen before." "If you bring a boy in and show him that you're genuinely interested in his welfare you're bound to make an impression," Fry contends. "To do that you need the help of the community. I didn't march into Denton and say 'help me. please!' I showed people that we at NTSU could in turn help the community by growing together. I'm not asking favors. I plan a return on every dollar I rece.ive and right now I've raised $160,000 this past year. Before that the largest sum ever to be raised by the NTSU athletic department was $7,000." Tying for the conference football championship in his first crack didn't hurt, either. "Winning does help ... a little bit," Fry adds sheepishly. "These are tough times everywhere," Holmes continues. "Money is tight and everyone here knows it. We're going to have to spend money to build but that's understood. You can't go to war without ammunition." Fry and Holmes further their mutual attitudes on the subject of promotion. "You've got to sell yourself," Hayden states. "You've got to learn to cooperate with others, that means the press. I wasn't four- time Texas football coach of the year because I hung up on sportswriters when they called "WE'VE GOT TO con- centrateon an image," Holmes surmises. "If we're going to go big-time we must conduct ourselves accordingly. With all; due respect to the success of basketball in our conference it is still football that will get us the headlines." Such stalwart realizations have made giants out of many a man. SF's Bryant Ends Spring Training ByJACKSAUNDERS tIPlSpcn Is Writer If you took on the calendar today, you'll find it says the first of June, but for Ron Bryant it only marks the end of spring training. The San Francisco Giants lefthander, who won a National League-leading 24 games in 1973, injured his side in a swimming pool accident in March, which required 17 stitches and four days in the hospital. Bryant was able to pitch only six innings in spring training, whereas he completed between 40 and 50 innings last Spring. Yesterday Bryant went six innings, giving up five hits and two runs but striking out six, in the Giants' 6-2 victory over Philadelphia,, for his second victory against four losses. On June 1 last year, Bryant picked up his eighth triumph. "This game brings me up to about the last week of spring training," Bryant said. "I still didn't have good stuff. They were hitting me pretty good— I had no breaking ball. "But 1 finally pitched a ball game instead of throwing. I used a little knowledge, changed speeds and walked only one, which is good for me. "I still don't have the confidence I had last year; that's going to take me some time. But I did get out of several jams and that's good.

Nl Roundup RANDY MOFFITT hurled three innings of two-hit scoreless relief for his 12th save, only two behind his total for 1973. Ed Goodson drove in the Giants' first run with his first homer of the season in the second, then Garry Maddox, who extended his hitting streak to 15 games, banged out his first double in the fourth and scored on a single by Steve Ohtiveros. His second double in the sixth drove in Bobby Bonds, who had doubled. Ontiveros walked and Chris Speier, Gary Thomasson, Dave Bader and Bonds followed with singles for the last three San Francisco runs in the ninth. Philadelphia scored in the first on a single by Larry Bowa and Greg Luzinski's triple and tallied its final run in the third when Dave Cash doubled, took third on Bowa's bunt and scored on Mike Schmidt's sacrifice fly. IN OTHER NL games, St. Louis Ranked San Diego 5-0, Cincinnati topped Pittsburgh 75, Houston beat New York 7-1 and Los Angeles whipped Chicago 8-3. Atlanta at Montreal was postponed because of rain. ST. LOUIS 5, SAN DIEGO 0 The Cardinals, taking advantage of the Phils' loss, used a five-hit shutout by Sonny Siebert to take possession of first place in the NL East by one percentage point. Siebert, 5-3, drove home Joe Torre for the only run he needed in the fourth inning with an infield out and was aided by Reggie Smith's 10th homer, with no one aboard, in the fifth. The loss by the Padres was their seventh in CINCINNATI 7, PITTS- BURGHS Johnny Bench, hitting .197 before he was moved into the third spot in the batting order early in May, blasted a bases- loaded triple to key a four-run seventh inning for the Reds, who remained seven games behind the West Division- leading Dodgers with -the second-best record in baseball. Losing 5-3, Cincinnati sent 10 men to the plate against four Pirate pitchers. Bench now has driven in 24 runs in his last 24 games and stroked 32 hits in his last 92 at-bats. Bob Robertson banged out his fifth and sixth homers for the Pirates. HOUSTON 7, NEW YORK 1. , Cesar Cedeno collected four hits, including his 10th homer of the season, in the Astros' victory over the Mets.

Last winter the Angels, sorely in need o£ a catcher who could hit, gave up one of their starting pitchers, Clyde AL Roundup Wright, to the Milwaukee Brewers for Ellie Rodriguez, a catcher who had hit .285 and .268 the past two seasons. The Angels didn't expect Rodriguez to contribute much power-wise, since he had hit only six homers in five big league seasons, but they figured he would be an every day player who would be somewhat more than the "automatic out" that Angel fans had been used to from the catching department in recent years. Now it appears the Angels may have gotten more than they expected. After going hitless in 18 appearances last week, Rodriguez has come alive at the plate with nine hits in his last 15 at bats, including a surprising show of power. His latest splurge came last night when he drove in four runs with a pair of homers and a double to lead the Angels to a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers. RODRIGUEZ, who has raised his .average to .265, doubled home two runs in the second inning, snapped a 2-2 tie with a homer in the fifth and capped a perfect 3-for-3 .night with another homer in the seventh. Rodriguez, who did not hit a homer last season in 94 games, already has four this season. "I haven't hit more than two •homers in a season since my rookie year of 1964," said fxe Rodriguez. "It was just one of HOUOHIOM: those nights when I got good f , mi . pitches. I was in a slump last : stock week and I credit Frank *" r ° Sci Robinson'and Whitey Herzog B* for helping me out of it. Herzog ? llvroc has been my hitting instructor since 1964 when I broke in. He noticed I wasn't getting my hands out in front of me when I swung. They were too close to my body." Rodriguez' hitting helped Bill Singer register his seventh win in 10 decisions. Singer, still bothered by a sore back that £ G Funs has plagued him all season, CM ml limited the Tigers to eight hits £"*S? INO and struck out six. Mickey Lolich, who had won his last five starts, was charged with his sixth loss in 11 decisions. Wood, despite giving up a pair of homers to Carlton Fisk,worked 8 2-3 innings to gain his eighth victory against six losses. . A's 5. BREWERS 2. Joe Rudi hit a three-run homer to highlight a five-run, fourth inning that enabled the A's to beat the Brewers. Dave Hamilton and Rollie Fingers combined on a seven-hitter for Oakland. TWINS 5, YANKEES 2. Tony Oliva collected four hits to help the Twins down the Yankees. Minnesota, which collected 16 hits, scored three times in the first inning off Dick Tidrow then held on to win behind the combined six-hit pitching of Joe Decker, Tom Burgmeier and Bill Campbell! ROYALS 4, INDIANS 2. Amos Otis singled .home tw<* runs and John Mayberry hit hi» 10th homer to lead the Royals" over the Indians. Steve Mingori turned in four innings of hitless relief to gain the victory while Steve Kline suffered his sixth- consecutive loss. RANGERS 7, ORIOLES 6. Toby Harrah's third hit of the : game drove home the winning run in the seventh inning, enabling the Rangers to defeat the Orioles. Steve Foucalt got the win in relief while reliever Bob Reynolds suffered the loss. Boog Powell had a three-ttm homer for Baltimore.
