Page Four IIOPK (ARK.) STAR Wednesday, Atigiisl 14, Both on Marshall couching stuff Hope twins have athletic monopoly By BOBBY HAWTHORNE Longview Morning Journal EDITOR'S NOTE: The following story is a reprint, courtesy of the Longvlew Morning Journal. The two subjects of the story are Hope natives, twin sons of Mr. and Mrs. Blant Jones of Southland Heights. Ken and Phil Jones beat the odds. According to the Encyclopedia Britlanica, the odds of the process that leads to the production of more than one offspring at a single birth, or twins, if you like, is approximately one in 80. Chances both twins will be male increase to around one in 140. These two are an exception. The pair, Iwrn and reared in Hope are now two of the five man Marshall High School varsity football coaching staff, of which Ken is head coach and athletic director. "I came to Texas from Arkansas in 1960," Ken said. "At that time, the salaries were better here than in Arkansas. I suppose that was the chief reason I came down here." Phil, who coached at Clarendon, Ark., and posted an 11-1-0 record in his first year out of college, followed his brother and came South in 1961, giving basically the same reasons for his departure from Razorback country. In many ways, the duo are alike in ways not related to the simple fact that they are biological twins. Both were high school football stars at Hope and later Henderson State. One is 15 minutes older than the other, although neither know which is older. "Mother never told us," they claim. Most importantly, however, is that both share the same „...-• • i»fi;/f7&^73 r**"' *"j Iff** -i ito*^ 3 * *•* "•''jmty&w&fr f'-^.^Smxi »jg^iiK£ respect for Texas football, for what football has to offer and for Marshall High football itself. "Texas football is the best brand of football in America today," Ken said. "There is only one other state that can even compete with the football we have here—Pennsylvania. California football is also highly regarded, he says, but much of the reason for that is its Hope Pirates' shoot down Reds with old-fashioned hitting By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer Sparky Anderson may put in for combat pay. "When Al Oliver hit his homer to make it 12-2, I yelled out: 'Tell Danny Murtaugh we surrender, '" the Cincinnati Manager noted with chagrin Tuesday night. But the Pirates didn't stop the heavy artillery. They continued shelling the Reds and went on to a 14-3 rout on 21 hits. "That was just good, old- fashioned country hardball," Anderson said. "The ball hit hardest all night was a single to center by Willie Stargell. If that would have hit concrete, it would have moved it three feet." But Stargell wasn't the only Red-killer. Richie Zisk drove in a run for the 10th straight game, and Al Oliver drove in five. Elsewhere in the National League, the Houston Astros stopped the Chicago Cubs 3-1; the Atlanta Braves stopped the Montreal Expos 4-3; the Philadelphia Phillies nipped the San Francisco Giants 6-5; the New York Mets turned back the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-0 and the San Diego Padres beat the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1. Zisk and Ed Kirkpatrick each drove in two runs during a five- run Pittsburgh first inning ami the Pirates kept punishing the Reds' pitching staff. The victory pushed Pittsburgh over the .500 mark for the first time this season and gave them eight victories in their last nine games and 22 in their last 31. Astros 3, Cubs 1 Cesar Cedeno's leadoff triple sparked -. two-run ninth inning Reprinted with permission of —Longview Morning Journal photo MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL has an athletic monopoly with Ken (right) and Phil (left) Jones who are Hope, Arkansas natives currently coaching at the Texas high school. Ken is the head football coach and athletic director of Marshall while Phil joined the coaching staff this summer. He is former head coach at Center High School the past three years. To help the athletes out Ken will have a "K" Jones on his cap and Phil will have a "P" Jones on his head. They are the twin sons of Mr. and Mrs. Blant Jones of Southland Heights, Hope. vast system of junior colleges, which feed extensively into the major Universities. "The University of Houston and Rice University are good examples," Ken continues. "They wouldn't even have to leave their city limits in recruiting to field a great team." And Lone Star State football is improving annually. "They've been given better coaches, better equipment and better facilities," Phil said. "There is no way they could keep from getting better. And they're going to continue to improve." As for football, the much criticized sport of alleged violent psychopaths and "big business" associations, Phil predicts, "You take athletics out of the school system and you talk about having problems, it'll be unreal. There are things taught by athletics that just can't be taught anywhere else." When asked to predict the 1974 Marshall season, Ken, who is going in to his third year as Maverick head honcho, confesses, "We'll be inexperienced. We lost 25 seniors off last year's team and then two lettermen who aren't going to play for us this fall so in all we lost 27 players." One of those lettermen was the starting center last year, who has been plagued by knee injuries. Don't count Marshall out, though. The fact that two Hope twins could grow up to coach East Texas high school football on the same staff is almost a miracle in itself. Anything afterwards looks quite possible. HEAD KNOCKING has returned to Hope High School as football practice began this past Monday. The Bobcats will return 19 lettermen to rookie head coach Rock Hutson, but only seven are starters. However, Hutson is optimistic and in ARKANSAS FOOTBALL —Barbie Hendrix photo with Star camera magazine said "that the offensive and defensive lines should be strong." Tackle Larry Butler has already been selected to one pre-season All-State team. He was all-district as a junior. Might be difference for pennant Palmer's rebirth lifts Oriole hopes By ALEX SACHARE AP Sports Writer Jim Palmer is alive and well, Star Sports Player opinion feels NFL strike now over that carried Houston over Chicago. Milt May followed Cedeno's triple with a single to snap a 1-1 tie. Braves 4, Expos 3 Dusty Baker belted his 14th home run of the year and an RBI single that highlighted a three-run fourth inning, leading Atlanta over Montreal for the Braves' fifth straight win. Atlanta's Ron Reed, 8-fl, scattered eight hits for the victory. Phillies 6, Giants 5 Mike Schmidt ripped a pair of towering home runs and drove in three runs, leading Philadelphia past San Francisco. Schmidt hit a two-run homer in the first inning and a solo shot in the third, his 27th, as the Phillies built a 6-1 lead against San Francisco starter Jim Barr. Mets 3, Dodgers 0 Left-hander Jon Matlack tossed a four-hitter and Jerry Grote's first home run in three months helped New York over Los Angeles. Matlack, 11-9, struck out eight and walked none in recording his fifth shutout of the season. Padres 2, Cardinals 1 Dave Winfield knocked in two runs with a single and double, leading San Diego over St. Louis. San Diego's Lowell Palmer, 2-4, called on to replace injured starter Vicente Romo with two out in the first inning, halted the Cardinals on six hits, including Reggie Smith's 16th home run. American League scores: Baltimore 8, Chicago 2; Kansas City 6, Detroit 2; Milwaukee 5, Texas 1; Oakland 6, New York 1 and Boston 3, California 0. Trevino after second win with stunning PGA victory By BOB GREEN AP Goll Writer WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (AP) — Lee Trevino, a notorious streak player, goes after a second, consecutive victory this week in the Sammy Davis Jr. - Greater Hartfora Open Golf Tournament. The flamboyant Trevino, winner of the PGA National Championship last Sunday in Clemmons, N.C., heads a strong field arrayed for the Thursday start of this $200,000 event that offers a 140,000 first prize. "There's no reason I ought to have a let-down," Trevino said. "I've always been a streak player. When I get it going good, I usually keep it going for a while." I>ast season he won twice— both within a three-week span. And, of course, in 1971 he achieved that unmatched, one- month sweep of the American, Canadian and British Opens. "Besides," Trevino continued, "I usually play real good here." Again, the record book supports him. He won this tournament in 1972 and tied for third last year. And, while he's fresh off a victory in a major championship, he's taking a dead-serious approach to this tournament. Papa Evert won Canadian Open 27 years ago By RON SUDLOW Written For Associated Press TORONTO (AP) — Twenty- seven years ago, a collegian from Notre Dame named Jimmy Evert beat Emery Neale of Seattle in five sets for the Canadian Open tennis title. "We were strictly amateur in those days," Evert recalled Tuesday. "1 got my room and board and $25 expense money." That was in Vancouver, B.C., in 1947. This week, his daughters, Chris, 19, and Jeanne, 16, are prime contenders for the women's singles crown in the same Canadian Open, but now the prize money totals $130,000. The Fort Lauderdale, Fla., sisters could divide $9,600 if they meet in Sunday's singles final, a good possibility. Top-seeded Chris, reigning Wimbledon and U.S. Clay Court champion, rolled past Marie Nasuelli of Italy 6-1, 6-2 in the opening round at the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club Tuesday. She has gone eight tournaments on clay-type surfaces without a single loss and even so says: "I don't think I'm playing ray nest tennis." Jeanne, the third seed who says she is "kinda honored" to be Chris' sister, beat an inconsistent Patti Hogan 6-3, 6-1. By HOWARD SMITH AP Sports Writer "There is no longer a strike," said Buffalo running back O.J. Simpson. "I hope they can get the negotiations over within the next two weeks." Simpson's opinion seemed prevalent Tuesday as National Football League players continued to pour into training camps across the country. The players association strike officially entered its 46th day Wednesday but it was fast becoming a skeleton strike. The majority of players entering camps under the Association's 14-day cooling off period, which is supposed to start today, gave no signs of wanting to walk out again in two weeks, regardless of the outcome of talks with owners scheduled to resume Thursday. "Maybe one or two individuals would leave," admitted Simpson, "but we won't leave en masse. I wouldn't leave." If the players' strike appeared to be crumbling, the association got some support from an unusual quarter when 12 members of the House of Representatives threatened owners with a thorough inspection of pro football's antitrust status if they don't deal fairly with the players. Rep. John Moss, D-Calif., whose subcommittee on commerce has jurisdiction in antitrust matters, said in a letter to the NFL Management Council that he hopes owners will play fair in dealings with the players union. "If they do not or if the union is significantly injured, we want it known we will undertake a complete review of the National Football League's antitrust status, and if the facts warrant, introduce appropriate legislation." A Management Council spokesman, in New York where an owners' group was meeting, responded to Moss' letter. "We know that the record of these negotiations will show that we bargained in good faith," he said. "We will invite Congressman Moss or any others to examine the record."

Palmer, 28, returning to the ^carting rotation after spending 54 days on the disabled list with arm trouble, tossed six strong innings Tuesday night in pitching the Orioles to an 8-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox. "I've got to be happy, he had good velocity," said Baltimore Manager Earl Weaver. White Sox skipper Chuck Tanner was more than impressed by the performance of Palmer, last year's Cy Young Award winner, "He threw free and easy," said Tanner, "and when he got in trouble he reached back and extended himself. This guy could be the difference in the division." Elsewhere in the American League, Milwaukee tripped Texas 5-1, Kansas City defeated Detroit 6-2, Boston blanked California 3-0 and Oakland beat New York 6-1. Cleveland and Minnesota were not scheduled. Boog Powell made Palmer's job easier by belting a grand slam in the first inning. "All I had to do was throw strikes," Palmer said. "There was no pressure on me at all ..." The Orioles scored seven runs in the first two innings. Brewers 5, Rangers 1 Johnny Briggs' two-run single keyed a four-run eighth inning that carried the Brewers to victory. Billy Champion, 7-2, pitched the first seven innings, scattering eight hits for the Brewers. Tom Murphy finished up. Victoria still leading Jravs in east division By The Associated Press Victoria dug in a little deeper in first place Tuesday night in the Texas League East Division by beating Shreveport while the second-place Arkansas Travelers were idled by rain. Victoria defeated the Captains 5-3 as the Toros' Brock Pemberton drove in three runs. In other action Amarillo dropped El Paso 8-7 and Midland defeated San Antonio 5-3. Alexandria at Arkansas was rained out. El Paso's John Balaz slugged two homers and doubled in the ninth to bring home four runs.

The Midland Cubs played catch-up in the sixth inning bringing in their five runs after trailing the Brewers for the first five innings. The Cubs' Tom Badcock spread out eight hits to raise his record to 2-5. Tonight there are no games scheduled as the Texas League All-Stars prepare to meet the American League Texas Rangers Thursday night at Shreveport, La. POTVIN WINS CALDER MONTREAL (AP) - Rookie defenseman Dennis Potvin of the New York Islanders of the National Hockey League has won the Calder Memorial Trophy. Royals 6, Tigers 2 Amos Otis drove in two runs with a pair of sacrifice flies to pace the Royals attack. Al Fitzmorris, 8-3, shut the Tigers out on four hits through seven innings, but gave up a two-run homer to Gary Sutherland in the eighth.
