FALLON Worcester Evening Gazette Written for Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — The ABC television network is taking steps to give a new look to its coverage of National Collegiate Athletic Association football this fall. First the network named Keith Jackson to replace Chris Schenkel as the play-by-play announcer. Schenkel has been assigned to ABC's New York studio to serve as anchor man for the college grid telecasts. And this week ABC added a new touch to football coverage, appointing two college journalists to serve as feature report- ersm The network apparently hopes to add a contemporary look at college football and campus life to the more traditional broadcasting features.

ABC begins its NCAA football coverage Sept. 7 with the Tennessee-UCLA game from Knoxville, Tenn. Hunt gunning for Chris Evert By KAROL STONGER AP Sports Writer FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP) — Lesley Hunt says Chris Everl can be beaten and she wants to prove it. The 24-year-old Australian gels her chance in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open Tennis championships. Miss Hunt, seeded eighth, beat Sue Mappin of Great Britain, 6-2, 6-0 Sunday while the top-seeded Miss Evert advanced with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Patti Hogan. "I played my first three matches knowing that with each one I was one match closer to Chris," said Lesley. "I'm just delighted that we're meeting. I'd like to prove to myself that I can beat her after coming so close." Miss Hunt battled Chris through 46 games — with time oul for 12 hours sleep — in the second round at Wimbledon. Bui while Lesley slepl, Chris sludied a lelevised replay of the early part of their match, came back and posled an 8-6, 57, 11-9 viclory. Miss Everl, who has won 55 straighl malches and is seeking to add the U.S. Open to her French and Wimbledon crowns, keeps her opponents at bay with a steady baseline game. But thai doesn't bolher Lesley. "I may go lo the net," she said. "I don't think you have to slay away." Other women's quarler-final- isls determined Sunday were fifth-seeded Evonne Goolagong, who beal Katja Ebbinghaus of Wesl Germany 6-0, 6-0; and Fort Smith Southside is favorite By HAftRY KING Associated PfessWfitef LITTLE MOCK (AP) Coach Jim Rowland should be able lo supply authentic ratings on the Class AAA high school teams in the state by the end of the year. in the first place, he is the coach at Fort Smith Southside—favorite in AAA—West. in addition, Southside plays Blylheville, the favorite in AAA-Easl, and Hot Springs and Tekarkana, favorites ih AAA» Cehiral, during the regular sea' sort. lie may even be able to shed some light on the AAAA race since Southside's other non- conference games are against Fort Smith Northside and North Little Rock Ole Main. Rowland approached Blytheville officials about a game after he came up with an open date. Why not pick on someone easier? "We like to play good football Bengals are tough By NORM CLARKE AP Sports Writer CINCINNATI (AP) — Division champions usually stand pal. Not Ihe Cincinnati Bengals. "We're still developing our franchise," insists Coach Paul Brown, wily dean of National Football League coaches. But the 65-year-old veteran of four decades of football isn't fooling anyone. There'll be new faces, yes, but Brown is keeping his trump cards. And there are indications that the Bengals, youngesl team in the NFL, have drawn to a full house. Brown remains the perennial pessimist. "Last year's record doesn't mean a thing," says Brown as he enters his 40lh season of coachingm' 'Every football team is at Ihe mercy of Ihe injury bug, so you can'I put much bearing on records." The Bengals overcame an injury-plagued start to win the AFC Central Division with a 104 record, finishing with six straight victories including a 27-0 roul of Super Bowl runner- up Minnesota. "We know what we can do," says captain Royce Berry, one of Ihe unheralded mainstays on Kerry Melville, seeded fourth, who eliminated Carrie Meyer of Indianapolis, 7-6,1-6, 6-1. Although Ihree seeded men fell Saturday — No. 4 Bjorn Borg lo Vijay Amritraj, No. 10 Manuel Oranles lo Anand Am- ritraj and No. 15 Tom Gorman to Australian Ray Moore — the first of the favored women didn't bow until Sunday. Virginia Wade, the veteran Brilish player who was seeded sevenlh, was eUminaled by 19- year-old Ann Kyomura. The Ihird-round score was 7-6, 2-6, 7-5. Afler a day of upsels of seeded men Saturday, things went according to form Sunday. Favored Jimmy Connors, Chris's fiance who is seeking his third major title of the year, beat Ove Benston of Sweden, 6-1, 6-3, 6-3 in the second round. Defending champion John Newcombe, seeded second, led third-round victors by downing Tony Roche 4-6,7-6,6-3,6-5 in an all-Australian duel.

"There's nobody better in the NFL than Mike Reid at defensive tackle and Isaac Curtis as a receiver. And outside of 0. J. Simpson, we think we've got the best backfield combination." The bullnand-greyhound combination of AFC rookie-of-the- year Charles "Boobie" Clark and elusive Essex Johnson provided the thrust that propelled the Bengals into the playoffs against Miami. But off-season operations on Johnson, Clark and 1972 regular Doug Dressier cast a cloud on their effectiveness. Johnson and Clark accounted for 1,983 rushing yards in 1973, finishing third and eighth among the NFL's top 10 ground gainers. Ken Anderson and Curtis hooked up to bring the long-absent bomb to the Bengals attack. teams," he said. Rowland doesn't mind being . favored in AAA-Wesl. "We probably assumed that role because we won the conference last year," he said. "1 don't mind being picked, but we realize we're not going to repeat unless we go to work." Rowland preaches hard-nosed football. "Thai's what we try to Sell our football players on. We ilon'i run a high risk offense. We're not real fancy. We're going lo try to line up and run at you." Doing much of the running Ihis fall will be tailback Steve Mallhcws and fullback Mike Anderson who is on the rebound from a knee injury. Matthews gained 950 yards last year although fullback Jon Brown got much of the limelight. Rowland describes Matthews as a "lough inside runner." "He has big legs. He's tough and reckless. He'll make some yards." Rowland must replace quarterback Robbie Jones, a two- year starter. Other members of AAA-Wesl are Roger, Russellville, Springdale, Fayelleville and Conway. Rogers may be Southside's strongest conference opponent. The Mountaineers have six offensive starlers and five defensive starters returning from last year's 7-3 team. The defense will be built around tackles Greg Comfort and David ' Smith. Lewis McCollum, in his second year at Russellville, says Ihe Cyclone will be weaker. McCollum is pround of wide receivers Sieve Slory, Mike Baker and Max Hines. Tailback Jim Knighl and fullback Bryan McBryde should boost the backfield. Springdale is thin on experience but the Bulldogs have an excellent quarterback in David Reynolds. Much is also expected of tackles Doug Sprouse and Jerry Burton. Doyne Davis, who won two AA championships at Morrilton in Ihree years, has Ihe lask of rebuilding Fayetteville. BEST WISHES TO OUR BOBCATS FOSTER REALTY CO., INC. Phone 777-4691 512 E. 3rd.
