i'age Four (Attk.) STAR Wednesday, September 18, 1974 Hope Star Sports Brock keeps stealingbases JL . ..i-^nir nilrhini? — fl-nm Winston gets top SWC nod FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Dennis Winston, a sophomore linebacker at the University of Arkansas, hangs a new picture on his wall each week — like a bounty hunter of the old west. A picture of Southern California tailback Anthony Davis has been on Winston's wall since he arrived here for fall football practice. Winston got his man last week when the Razorbacks put the quietus on Davis and USC in a 22-7 upset. Winston was credited with 12 unassisted tackles and helped on eight others. For his performance, Winston was named The Associated Press' Defensive Player of the Week. Washington s get national honors BY HERSCHEL NISSENSON AP Sports Writer Washington ... first in war, first in peace and first in the nightmares of defensive coaches.. There's Joe Washington, Oklahoma's junior halfback, who carried 17 times for 156 yards, including a nine-yard touchdown run in the final period that sealed the Sooners' 28-11 victory over Baylor. And there's little brother Knnnv Washington, North Texas Slate's freshman quarterback, who made his varsity debut by rushing for 118 yards on 21 carries and completing seven of 15 passes for 101 more as the Eagles barely lost to heavily favored Southern Methodist 7-6. For those performances, the brothers Washington from Port Arthur, Tex., were named to share National College Back of the Week honors by The Associated Press. Millwood named federal waters LITTLE ROCK — Last month the Game and Fish Commission conducted a public hearing to help determine the waters within the state that would be designated federally controlled waters. After that hearing and with concurrence of the U.S. Coast Guard, it has been decided that the following reserviours and streams will be considered federally controlled for the purpose of the Commission enforcing federal boating safety regulations for recreational boats. Reservoirs are Beaver, Reservoir, Table Rock Lake, Bull Shoals Lake, Norfolk Lake, Greers Ferry Reservoir, Dardanelle Reservoir, Ozark Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, Nimrod Lake, Lake Ouachita, Lake Hamilton, Lake Catherine, DeGray Reservoir, Lake Greeson, Millwood Reservoir. Navigable Streams are White River from mouth to Dam No. 1 at Batesville, Black River from the mouth to the Missouri State Line, Mississippi River from the Louisiana State Line to the Mo. State Line, Arkansas River from the mouth to the Oklahoma State Line, Ouachita River from the La. State Line to the port of Camden, Red River from the Louisiana State Line to the Oklahoma State Line. State boating regulations apply on these and all other lakes and streams in the state. (State regulations, in most instances, are less restrictive than the federal regulations). Federal boating regulations require that all motor driven boats regardless of size or horsepower be registered and numbered and follow all of the other provisions of the law. All boaters using federally controlled waters should request single copies of a two page leaflet that covers the federal regulations. All of these regulations now apply to designated federally controlled waters and will be enforced by the State Game and Fish Commission's Wildlife Officers.

This week, Winston said, a picture of Oklahoma State University back George Palmer will be on his wall. "When we finish the season, I'm going to have the outstanding running backs we play against up on my wall." Winston was asked about tackling Davis, who netted only 74 yards on 20 attempts. "I saw him coming, and I Shreveport on WFL team mayor hints SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) Shreveport Mayor Calhoun Allen scheduled a press conference today at which he said World Football League officials would announce plans "I'm just real pleased with." Allen declined to indicate whether the league would reveal plans to move the beleaguered Houston Texans here, saying "that's up to the WFL." Shreveport has figured in reports of WFL franchise movements for several weeks with both the Texans and the similarly troubled Detroit Wheels pegged to find a new home here. Mickey Cox, sent to the Texans by WFL management to aid with trades, said Tuesday in Houston that he was searching for a buyer for the Houston team that is both physcially and financially hurting. "I believe I can find one in Louisiana in two weeks and the chances are good the team will move there by then," Cox said. Cox, from Monroe, La., played under former Louisiana State Coach Paul Dietzel as a member of his famed defensive squad tagged the "Chinese Bandits." He said he has territorial rights to Louisiana for WFL franchises. just went to him. I think it was a great honor just to hit somebody like Anthony Davis. It just felt great when I hit him." UA defensive coach Frank Falks has said Winston has an "evil streak" in him on the football field. But, Winston said, he just likes contact. "I'm not really like that," Winston said. "I just change on the football field for some reason. I'm not the type that goes around picking fights.". UA defensive coach Jimmy Johnson said he doesn't think he has ever seen anyone come on to the field "in such a bad- type mood. "Dennis is probably the greatest I've ever seen anywhere at making a tackle full speed in the open field," Johnson added. "This type of hit picks up the crowd and the players and it has to discourage the ball-carrier and the opposing team. It makes that 1 runner a little bit fidgety about running in an open field because he never knows when Winston's coming." Of his explosive style, Winston said, "I was just trying to put them out of their misery. I guess I do play reckless every now and then." Davidson pleased with ASU workout JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) — Coach Bill Davidson indicated that he was pleased with his Arkansas State University Indians' passing game and de- , fense during a workout Tuesday. "You would think we were getting close to game time the way these guys are getting after it," he said. "And I guess we are, but we are still 10 days away from the opener." Davidson praised the work of cornerback Lloyd Walls, who had been sidelined two weeks with a sprained ankle. Davidson said the Forrest City native "made some super, super plays." By BERT ROSENTHAL AP Sports Writer Even in a tired condition, Lou Brock, the St. I/>uis Cardinals' base-stealing wizard, can outfox the slyest pitchers in the National league. Brock used his feet and his brains to weave his magic against the Pittsburgh Pirates and Jerry Reuss Tuesday night, and his feats of prestidigitation produced a 2-1 St. Louis victory in 13 innings that stretched the streaking Cardinals' lead to 2% games over the slumping Pirates in the NL East pennant race. That was the Pirates' problem in the 13th—they couldn't keep Brock off the bases. He opened the inning with a single, and after Reuss threw six consecutive times to first base, he stole second easily. It extended his single-season record to 109 stolen bases and lifted him into second place on the all-time list with 744, one ahead of Eddie Collins, who played from 19061930, mostly with the Philadelphia Athletics. The all-lime stolen base leader is the immortal Ty Cobb with 892. Meanwhile, in the NL West first-place Los Angeles and runner-up Cincinnati both lost, leaving the Dodgers 2% games ahead of the Reds. The Houston Astros beat the Dodgers 7-0 and the San Diego Padres whipped the Reds 6-1. Elsewhere in the NL, the Chicago Cubs downed the Philadelphia Phillies 4-2, the Atlanta Braves topped the San Francisco Giants 4-3, and the New York Mets at Montreal Expos game was postponed because of wet grounds. Astros 7, Dodgers 0 Houston's Tom Griffin handcuffed NL West-leading Los Angeles on five hits for his third shutout of the season and 14th victory. Lee May drove in three Houston runs with his 24th homer and a sacrifice fly, and Doug Rader smashed his 17th homer. Padres 6, Reds 1 San Diego also received Palmer pitches Birds to crucial victory By FRED ROTHENBERG AP Sports Writer h As Jim Palmer . painfully found out this season, the Cy Young Award doesn't do anything for a sore arm. Palmer helped salvage some of what's left of his long season with a masterful seven-hit shutout Tuesday night, pitching the Baltimore Orioles to a 4-0 victory over the New York Yankees. It was a crucial game for the Orioles since a loss would have dropped them 3% games behind the high-flying Yankees in the American League East. Elsewhere in the American League, the Detroit Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 5-3; the Kansas City Royals edged the Oakland A's 2-1; the Milwaukee Brewers shaded the Cleveland Indians 3-2; the Minnesota Twins punished the Chicago White Sox 8-0, and the California Angels-Texas Rangers game was rained out. Palmer's victory, his seventh in 19 decisions, moved the Orioles within 1% games of the Yankees. The pressure shifted back and forth Tuesday night as Palmer and Yankee ace, Doc Medich, 18-14, matched zeroes for six innings. But Elrod Hendricks doubled with one out in the seventh, took third on Mark Belanger's bunt single when Medich was slow covering first, and just beat leftfielder Lou PinieUa's throw to the plate on Al Bumbry's sacrifice fly for the only run Palmer needed. Tigers 5, Red Sox 3 Al Kaline would love to end his career this season but before he does there's a little matter of seven more hits. That's all Kaline needs to join a very exclusive club, the 3,000-hit club. So far only 11 U.S. wins Cup in four races NEW PORT, R.I., (AP)., - "It's'Very hard to come to a foreign country and take away something that has been here 123 years." That was Australian Alan Bond talking Tuesday after his challenger Southern Cross had met defeat for the fourth straight time in the America's Cup yacht racing series. "We will be back, however, and you can be sure we'll be tough," he assured the sponsoring New York Yacht Club. "We learned a lot, and we'll learn more." _ •,• The American defender, Courageous, walloped Bond's challenger by a horrendous 7 minutes, 19 seconds in the fourth outing of the bestof-seven series Tuesday and assured that the most prestigious • trophy in yachting wll remain on its permanent pedestal in the New York Yacht Club. It was the worst defeat handed a foreign challenger since Constellation beat the British entry Sovereign by 15 minutes, 40 seconds in 1964. BEST WISHES FOR A WINNING SEASON FROM YOUR WHOOPING & HOLLERING BACKERS AT ROBERT A. ARNOLD CONSTRUCTION CO. BUILDER OF QUALITY HOMES players hold keys to the fraternity. Kaline's 2,993rd hit sparked a sixth-inning rally which lifted the Tigers to their victory over the faltering Red Sox, dropping them 3^ games behind the first-place Yankees in the AL East. Royals 2, A's 1 Steve Busby's 20th win, a tidy three-hitter, stopped the defending champion A's in their tracks. Busby, 20-14, yielded two singles to Bill North and one to Joe Rudi. George Brett's run- scoring single up the middle in the seventh made Busby a winner over Jim "Catfish" Hunter, 23-12. Brewers 3, Indians 2 Darrell Porter's 12th home run and a pinch single by Bob Hansen produced two seventh- inning runs to tilt the victory in Milwaukee's favor. Twins 8, While Sox 0 Vic Albury scattered six hits and Minnesotan helped by a wild pitch and a pair of errors during a six-run first inning, blanked the White Sox. It was the Twins' ninth triumph in their past 11 games and hiked Albury's record to 78. Stan Bahnsen,'lM5, took;the loss. strong pitching — from Bill Grief — in beating Cincinnati and jolting the Reds' pennant hopes. Grief allowed only six hits. Meanwhile, the Padres, led by Dave Winfield, tagged Cincinnati's 19-game winner Jack Billingham for five runs and eight hits in less than three innings. Winfield cracked a two- run single and his 18th homer. Cubs 4, Phillies 2 Don Kessinger was virtually the entire offense for the Cubs, either driving in or scoring all of Chicago's runs. He walked in the first inning and came home on Peter Lacock's double. Then in the fifth, he doubled in two runs and scored on Jose Cardenal's single. Braves 4, Giants 3 Atlanta's Buzz Capra pitched a seven-hitter for his 15th victory and Marty Perez knocked in the winning run with a seventh- inning single. HopeB wins, 12-0 The Hope Bobcats B-team defeated the Magnolia Panthers B-team 12-0 last Monday night. The Bobcats scored on a 70- yard run by Curley Davis and a 5-yard dash Jim Byrd. 700 ROUNDS A WEEK GREENPORT, N.Y. (AP) Island's End Golf and Country Club, 80 miles from the New York City line, is enjoying its busiest season in history. Golf pro Frank Zeray reports the Greenport course on Long Island's North Fork has been averaging 700 rounds a week. A number of women have been playing the well-manicured 6,708-yard course, many of them beginners who get a break because their red tees make the layout an enjoyable 5,101 yards. The most picturesque hole is the 16th, a par three that is reminiscent of Pebble Beach. The hole stretches over a gully, with Long Island Sound on the right.
