Pour HOPE (ARK.) SfAtt Friday, September 20, ii&?4 Orioles move in to lead AL East By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer The Baltimore Oriole's 7-0 rout of New York Thursday night gave the Orioles a half- game lead over the New York Yankees in the American League East. Dave McNally pitched the Orioles to their 18th victory in the last 23 games as the Yankees, after a recent surge, lost their third straight game to the Orioles. The Orioles' pitchers gave New York just four runs in the three-game series at Yankee Stadium. McNally gave the Yankees only three hits. McNally, 16-10, stifled the Yankees on three singles in winning his fourth consecutive game and eighth in 10 decisions since July 31. It was the second shutout for the Orioles in the Ihree-uaim; sweep. Do/i Baylor opened the scoring, smashing the first pitch of the fifth inning from Hudy May, fi-4, far over the fence for his ninth homo run of the .season. The Orioles added two runs in the eighth inning on a run-scoring single by Paul Blair and an RBI double by Hobby Grich. They scored four more runs in the ninth, with Andy Ktehebarrcn, Mark Belanger and Tommy Davis each singling in a run and Grich knocking in another with a grounder. Tigers 3, Red Sox 1 Vernon Ruble pitched two-hit ball for seven innings in his first major league start and Al Kaline closed in on 3,000 life- lime hits with a run-scoring single, lifting Detroit over Boston. The Red Sox' loss left them in third place, three games behind the Orioles. Royals 4, A's 3 Amos Otis singled home the tie-breaking run in the 10th inning, giving Kansas City its victory over Oakland. The loss reduced the A's lead in the American League West to 4 ] /4 games over the idle Texas Rangers. Pirates 8, Cardinals 6 Willie StargelJ hit a two-run double and Richie Hebner added a three-run homer, keying a seventh-inning rally that lifted Pittsburgh over St. Louis. The victory moved the Pirates within a half-game of the first- place Cardinals in the National League East. Cubs 7, Phillies 4 Ron Dunn drove in three runs and drilled three doubles and Bill Madlock knocked in two runs and collected three hits, leading Chicago over Philadelphia. Dodgers 11, Padres 2 Sti'vi 1 Yeager smashed a ihree-run homer and Don Sulton and Mike Marshall combined on a six-hitter, leading Los Angeles past San Diego. Reds 8, Giants 4 Johnny Bench lashed a three- run double in a six-run, second inning and Cincinnati went on to an easy victory over San Francisco. HempiKsod County. Knife Star Sports Arkansas ranks as favorites LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Phillip Dokes' birthday celebration could be a drag. Dokes, a defensive tackle for Oklahoma State, will turn 19 Saturday. OSU and the University of Arkansas meet Saturday night in an inlersectional football game and the Razorbacks are a six-point favorite. OSU is running the wishbone for the third year, but the Cowboys' operator for Ihe past two years, Brent Blackman, is gone. He has been replaced by a sophomore, Charlie Wealherbie. The Razorbacks' offense should improve this week, although OSU plays the wishbone and practices against it. Arkansas is No. 10 in the nation this week and the Razorbacks aren't about to let that national ranking slip. ARKANSAS 17, OKLAHOMA STATE 10.

Milwaukee Hogs, Pokes meet Saturday By HARRY KING Associated Press Writer LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Pity George Palmer and the other Oklahoma State seniors. One more year of eligibility and they would have enjoyed a natural earplug for the Razorback crowds at Little Rock. Arkansas plays OSU at Stillwater next year—the first time the Razorbacks have played in Stillwaler since 1952. The opposition was then called Oklahoma A&M. Saturday night, its Arkansas vs. OSU at Little Rock. Palmer and the Cowboy veterans know what that means. "Playing in Little Rock is a monster with all those people calling the Hogs," Palmer said. "1 was so nervous playing there my first two years, both times I went the wrong way on the first play. Last year I kept telling myself over and over I was gonna go the right way but the first call was '45' and I ran a '44.' "Their fans really back their team," said offensive guard Gene Ritz. "It's an experience seeing over 50,000 people in the stands calling the hogs." The 1973 Arkansas game also brings back fond memories for OSU. The Cowboys wiped out the Razorbacks 38-6, OSU's first victory over Arkansas in six attempts. Arkansas, coming off a 22-7 upset of Southern California, is a one- ouchdown favorite. OSU crushed outmanned Wichita Hope to entertain Badgers tonight By JOHN MAY Hope Hi-Lights Sportswriter Last Friday, Lawrence Hutson recorded his first win as head coach of the Hope Bobcats. The 20-0 victory came at the expense of the defending Class A champions, Prescott. Asked about his first victory, Hutson replied, "It was a good victory. We played well. I just wish the win would have come sooner!" "But our win was marred by an injury to Larry Butler, our starling tackle. It was a freak injury. Larry was jumping for happiness after our first score and he came down wrong on the leg. He will not dress for the game Friday. We hope to have him back for the Fairview game. But he did play a heck of a game while he was in theere!" "Also Mike Butler, our starting center, suffered a knee injury. Mike's isn't as bad as lorry's. But he will be slowed. We will use Mike only on offense. Curtis East will take his place on defense. Also, David Flenory will start in place of Butler." Hutson praised the defensive secondary by saying they were "greatly improved". "There was gang tackling and that's good. Its hard to single one person out. It was a team effort." Looking to Friday's game with them as being "a dangerous, explosive ball club." "Their quarterback, Levi Garland, is a fine athlete. Also Donnie Anderson a halfback has good speed. Mike Ferrell and split receiver Ricky Smith have speed. Overall they have more speed than Ashdown or Prescolt." Arkadelphia is 0-2 "don't that fool you" warns Hutson, ''They have been beaten by close scores. Prescotl beat them 1814, and Ashdown beat them 2720. They can score with the ball." The Bobcals will be looking for revenge after last year's defeat at the hands of the Baders 17-0. Game lime against Arkadelphia is 7:30 at Hammons Stadium. NFL has full week-end By FRED ROTHENBERG AP Sports Writer The National Football League has dipped into the collegiate ranks for almost all its players, some of its coaches and at least one team's defense. The New England Patriots went to school on the defending Super Bowl champion Miami Dolphins last Sunday with a defense Coach Chuck Fairbanks developed on the campus. Fairbanks, hired by the Patriots in 1973 after a successful tenure with the University of Oklahoma, installed his "stack" defense against Miami, and the Dolphins — undefeated in 1972, twice beaten in 1973 — are 0-1 in 1974. The new defense, which employs three men on the line and four linebackers, held Miami's running backs to 71 yards and gave a new look to the offense as New England quarterback Jim Plunketl completed 14 of 24 passes for 177 yards and one touchdown. Fairbanks hopes to give les- so.is in the successful operation of the "slack" to the New York Giants Sunday, when the two flubs meet in New Haven's Yale Bowl and Ihe bell rings for the second week of the NFL season. The rest of Sunday's schedule has Miami al Buffalo, St. Louis at Washington, Pillsburgh at Denver, Kansas City at Oakland, New Orleans at Los Angeles, Minnesota al Deiroil, San Diego al Cincinnati, San Fan- usco at Ailanla, Ihe New York Jt'tS ai Chicago, Houslon al Cleveland, and Green Bay at Baltimore. The Dallas Cowboys iravel lo Philadelphia to face ihe Eagles in a nationally televised fame MoncluN night. u.J.

Mercury Morris, Miami's speedy outside running ihreal who did not play last week, will start Sunday. St. Louis, 1-0, kept Philadelphia's potent passing attack out of the end zone last week, but the Redskins, 1-0, with Larry Brown, Larry Smith and Duane Thomas, are known to iravel best on land. Quarterback Joe Gilliam justified his status as No, 1 Pittsburgh quarterback, throwing for 257 yards and two touchdowns and leading the Steelers to a 30-0 rout of Baltimore. The Broncos, 0-1, dropped a 17-10 decision to Los Angeles but hold a 3-0 edge over Pittsburgh in previous meetings. Kansas City, 1-0, and Oakland, 0-1, each hope to tilt this classic series its way after battling to a 14-14-2 standoff over the past decade and a half. Los Angeles, 1-0, brings its offensive festival back home against ihe Sainls, 0-1. John Hadl direcls the Ram attack lhal fealures Lawrence McCuicheon and Jim Bertelsen by land and Harold Jackson by air. Archie Manning is New Orleans' quarterback. National Football League By The Associated Press Sunday's Games San Francisco at Atlanta Miami al Buffalo San Diego at Cincinnati Houslon at Cleveland Minnesota at Delroit New England al New York Giants St. Louis al Washinglon Green Bay at Baltimore New York Jets al Chicago Pittsburgh at Denver New Orleans at Los Angeles Kansas City at Oakland Monday's Game Dalia.i a, Philadelphia Minnesota, 1-0, has tamed the Lions the past six years, beating them 12 straight times. Cincinnati displayed an explosive offense against the Browns in last Sunday's 33-7 victory. San Diego, 0-1, rolled up 411 offensive yards despite losing to-Houston 21-14. San Francisco, winless in preseason, used a late-game blocked punt that set up Sammy Johnson's nine-yard TD run lo beat New Orleans. Atlanta, with quarterbacks Pat Sullivan and Bob Lee both seeing action, generated little offense in a 24-0 loss lo Dallas last Sunday. Jets quarterback Joe Namath threw for 210 yards and two touchdowns, but had four passes intercepted in New York's 24-16 loss :to Kansas City. Chicago, 1-0, found a game-breaking passing combination in quarterback Gary Huff to Charley Wade, who grabbed two passes for 116 yards. Cleveland, 0-1, is 8-0 against the Oilers, 1-0, but the Browns never beat them with Ronnie Coleman and George Amundson in the Houston backfield. Quarterback Marty Domres was hurt in Baltimore's 30-0 loss to the Steelers last week but is expected back against the Packers, 0-1. Green Bay quarterback Jerry Tagge threw three interceptions last week against Minnesota, Dallas won its ninth straight season opener as quarterback Roger Staubach had the Dallas offense rolling with 205 rushing yards and 206 yards in the air. Philadelphia quarterback Roman Gabriel hit on 23 of 39 passes for 208 yards against the Cardinals but four in- completions inside the St. Louis 10 in the final 30 seconds put the wraps on a 7-3 loss.

"There's no way you can get a picture of your team's real ability unless you play against a team of equal ability," Stanley said. "I'm proud of any victory and the score," he said. "But you've gotta look at it like it is, Wichita State didn't compare to us physically. "After looking al the film, I was sick. 'We're certainly two steps away from being quick enough, we weren't getting off the ball, our backs don't run near hard enough for our type of offense and our tackling was sloppy. The film proved if we play like that against Arkansas we'll gel beat three touchdowns." Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles, in response to a question, said he did not think his learn would be reliving the USC game Saturday night. He was asking to compare OSU and USC. "We were playing a finesse team Saturday," he said. "This is more of a jaw-to-jaw type offense and defense." Both OSU and Arkansas will use the wishbone offense. Brent Blackman, the super-quick quarterback who operated the Cowboys' attack last year, is gone. His replacement is Charlie Weatherbie, a sophomore. He was an excellent passer at Fort Scott, Kan., and reportedly surprised some observers when he chose the run-oriented wishbone of OSU. The fullback will be George Palmer who rushed for 75 yards against the Razorbacks last year. He will be flanked by speed. Leonard Thompson, who runs 9.7, will start at left halfback. Terry Miller and Kenny Walker, the right halfbacks, are faster. Didn*tget away —Hope (Ark.) Star photo Alexander West of Hope displays the bobcat that he bagged while hunting a squirrel.

Notre Dame goes to Northwestern By ALEX SACHARE AP Sports Writer Top-ranked Notre Dame goes into Saturday's game against Northwestern following an impressive 31-7 victory over Georgia Tech Sept. 9, while the unranked Wildcats dropped their opener by an embarrassing 41-7 score to Michigan State. Nevertheless, Notre Dame Coach Ara Parseghian has found something to worry about as he prepares the Irish for Saturday's game before an expected capacity crowd of 55,000 at Northwestern's Dyche Stadium: quarterback Mitch Anderson, the leading passer in the Big Ten Conference last year. "We still don't know how our green secondary will respond against a good passing team" said Parseghian, who left the head coaching job at Northwestern in 1964 to take over at Notre Dame. Of the other Top Ten teams in The Associated Press poll, only third-ranked Oklahoma has the weekend off. In day games, No. 2 Ohio State plays host to Oregon State No. 4 Nebraska journeys to Wisconsin, No. 6 Michigan entertains Colorado and Navy visits No. 8 Penn State, In night action, No. 5 Alabama meets Southern Mississippi at Birmingham, Ala., No. 7 Louisiana State plays host to Texas A&M, Wyoming visits No. 9 Texas and Oklahoma State opposes No. 10 Ar- kansas at Little Rock, Ark. Second-ranked Ohio State is heavily favored over Oregon Stale in a major intersectional battle. Ohio State rolled up 486 yards in beating Minnesota 3419 in its opener last week, while Oregon State is 0-2, having lost to Syracuse 23-15 and Georgia 48-35. "Nobody comes easy these days, especially when you're highly rated," warned Ohio State Coach Woody Hayes. "It would make their season if they could beat us in Columbus." No. 4 Nebraska comes off a 61-7 rout of Oregon last week which made quite an impression on Wisconsin Coach John Jardine. "Nebraska is much better than last season," Jardine said. "With Tony Davis shifted to fullback, their attack is much more diversified than a year ago. And as for their quarterback, David Humm — 1 don't think there is a much better player in the country." Fifth-ranked Alabama squeaked past Maryland 21-16 in its opener last week, and Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant is approaching the Southern Mississippi game very cautiously. "We got whipped physically last week, and Southern has at least as big and strong a team as Maryland," Bryant observed. "We'll have to get better this week, or we certainly could get beaten." RAZOKBACK FOOJBALL FACTS The history of the University of Arkansas' football program is a rich and full one. The Razorbacks played their first game in 1894 when their coach was a Latin professor and their nickname was the Cardinals (this is the reason for the school colors). They began their long climb to the top in obscurity, and the climb was not an easy one. Over the course of 78 seasons, Arkansas has won 383, lost 278 and tied 32 games. Only in 1909 when Arkansas had its first undefeated season, did people start referring to the team as the Razorbacks. Although Arkansas was a charter member of the Southwest Conference, the Porkers did not win their first title until 1933, and they have won 9 conference crowns since that first one. The Razorbacks have been to 13 bowl games; they have won 4, lost 7 and tied 2. This will be a year of experiment for the Razorbacks as they shift their offense from the pro passing attack to ground oriented Wishbone. Some yell of encouragement should come to mind.
