i*age Four HOPE (ARK.) STAR \Voclnosday. September 25, 1974 Tulsa watches Hog horror movie By MARKY KING Associated Press Writer LITTLE HOCK (AP)-Tulsa Coach F. A. Dry has a 45-min- uie horror film that may have more showings than "Gone With The Wind." The movie shows Arkansas' pass defease for the first three quarters against Pat Haden of Southern California. It's enough to bring tears to the eyes of a pass-rninded coach like Dry. How many limes had he seen the film? "Too many," he said. Haden, whom USC Coach John McKay called the greatest passer he had ever seen, did nol complete a pass against the Kazorbacks until the final minute of the third quarter. He suffered four interceptions in a 227 loss. "II bothers the thunder out of you when you see them shut down a combination that went lo the Rose Bowl," Dry said. Dry, whose team has thrown 62 passes while splitting with Kansas Slate and North Texas TenNapel gets nod By HERSCHEL NISSENSON AP Sports Writer Remember the name Garth TenNapel. It's TenNapel, no space; not Ten Napel. Pretty soon it may be Garth Twenty- Tackle. After all, the Texas A&M linebacker has made 20 tackles in each of the Aggies' first two games. He made 10 solos, assisted on 10 others and recovered a fumble to set up the winning touchdown in the 21-14 upset victory over Louisiana Slale Saturday night. For that performance, the 6- fool-2, 202-pound junior from Euless, Tex., has been named National College Lineman of the Week by The Associated Press. "It was the greatest game Garth ever played," said linebacker coach John Paul Young, aware that TenNapel also.nVade,' 20 tackles against Clemson a week earlier. Most of the Aggies' line- backing kudos the past two years have gone to Ed Simonini, a second team All-America selection last fall. So it was ironic that TenNapel had to move over to Simonini's strong- side position Saturday night when Simonini was knocked unconscious in the third quarter. "It bugs me sometimes that Ed gets all the publicity," Ten- Napel says, "but as long as the school gels recognition it's okay." The Aggie defense limited USU, ranked seventh in the nation at the time, lo 272 yards in lotal offense. Siaif, send.s his Golden Hurricane against the Razorbacks Scuurday at Fayetteville. "This seems lo be one of Ihe best secondaries ihey have had," Dry said. "They did an excellent job of giving Southern Cal different looks and pressuring Haden ... forcing him lo scramble." How does Dry plan to at lack Arkansas' secondary. "You have lo use your backs quite a bit more in pallerns and try lo occupy people," he said. Arkansas was upset by Oklahoma Slale 20-7 last week and Dry was asked if Tulsa's task rnighl have been easier had Arkansas won. "I don'i really think along ihose lines," he said. "I think about who we're playing and what kind of football team they have. Our task has always been a tremendous one against Arkansas." Dry was asked lo explain Arkansas' loss lo OSU in light of Ihe victory over USC. "A lot of limes you can'l explain Ihe reason why," he said. "Arkansas has an outstanding ball club and lhey'11 keep getting better and better each week." "It was critical turnovers thai caused Ihem some problems. When you have bad field posilion, lhat really puts the pressure on your offense. It's a lot easier lo move from the 50 lhan from your own 20. Poor field posilion limits your offense." Dry also said OSU's three down linemen—Carl Devorca, Phillip Dokes and James White—contributed to Arkansas' problems. "You could come off the ball with a lot of velocity and still have problems when you hit a mack truck. Those are three of the largesl people I've seen on a same college team. We'd have to melt two and put them together lo get one that size." Dry says Tulsa's biggest problem is a young and crippled offensive line. He said the offensive line includes two sophomores, two r^edshirts and ..one squadman and that three of Ihe five were injured last week. Tulsa lost its opener to Kansas Slate 31-14, but trailed by only three points and was driving in the fourth quarter when a busied assignment killed a drive and resulted in a punt that was checked. Tulsa wiped out North Texas State 31-7 last week. Tulsa's offense features quarterback Jeb Blount, a junior, who has completed 29 of 52 passes for 275 yards. Blount, who became a starter late in the 1973 season, completed 61 of 109 for 849 yards last year. Dry is hoping Blount's debut against Arkansas does not result in a sequel to the USC movie.

Elchebarren's squeeze and Baltimore's climb to the top of the AL East look some of Ihe glamor away from Detroit's Al Kaline, whose fourth-inning double made him the 12th player in major league history to reach 3,000 hits for his career. Elsewhere in the American League, Milwaukee nipped Cleveland 4-3 in 11 innings, California defeated Kansas City 9-3 and Oakland trimmed Min- nesola 5-1. Chicago's doubleheader al Texas was rained out. Trailing 4-3 afler seven innings, Ihe Orioles tied the score on doubles by Don Baylor and Robinson in the eighth. Robinson moved to third on a wild pilch lo set the stage for Etchebarren's bunt. Elchebarren, who has played in just 58 games this year and had only one previous sacrifice, laid his bat on the high curve- ball from Tigers relief ace John Hiller and tapped the ball down the first base line. There was no play on Robinson, who scored with the winning run, and Elchebarren even beat it oul for single. The 39-year-old Kaline, playing in Ihe 2,827lh game of a 22- yeais career; is Ihe first player "to reach'3,000 since the late Roberto Clemente did it on the final day of the 1972 season. It's been nearly 50 years since an American Leaguer achieved the feat. Red Sox 4-4, Yankee 0-2 The New York Yankees were depressed and frustrated after being slopped on six hits by Luis Tiant in the opener and on Kaline hits No. 3000 BALTIMORE (AP) - Al Kaline achieved baseball immortality before the emotionally drained fans of his native Baltimore, but the Detroit Tigers' superstar was perhaps the calmest person in Memorial Stadium. The game was halted for appropriate ceremonies honoring the occasion, but Kaline kept his cool. He delivered a run- scoring single in the sixth, forging a 2-2 tie with the Orioles. Afler Baltimore rallied for a crucial 5-4 victory in the American League's tight Eastern Division race, causing another oul burs I by the fans, Kaline said the defeal was Ihe only damper on the whole evening. Referring to Ihe reaching of his goal, Kaline said: "I'm happy it's over with, but I'm sorry we didn't win. That would have capped it perfectly." The Tigers, last in the division, have seven home games remaining but Kaline said he didn't want to take a chance and wail until getting back to Detroit before going for hit No. 3,000. Detroit's designated hitter, once one of the game's best outfielders, had said this would be his final season if he reached the exclusive milestone. He didn't want to risk having a freak injury stand in his way. "I would have much preferred lo have goilen Ihe hit in Detroit," he said. "But since it couldn\ be Delroil, I'm glad it was here. My parents, my sister, my wife's parents and a lot of friends were here." Immediately afler the gi.me, Kaline Lt'lephoned his wife who was hospitalized in Detroit follow my surgery on Monday. She hail listened <.o the game on Ihe radio seven hits by Roger Morel in the nigh lea p. The Orioles have seven games lo go and Ihe Yankees six in the regular season, which ends next Wednesday. Boston, in third place, is 3'/2 games behind the Orioles. A's 5, Twins 1 Gene Tenace's third grand- slam home run of the season helped Ihe A's stretch their lead in the AL West to five names over the idle Texas Hangers. Oakland's pennant- clinching magic number is now four. Angels 9, Royals 3 Nolan Ryan boosted his record to 21-16, scattering five hits and striking out nine. He now leads the majors with 352 slrikeouls, and should have two more starts lo try to match his record of 383 set last year. Brewers 4, Indians 3 Dave May belted two home runs for the Brewers, but it was Bobby Mitchell's llth-in- ning blast which provided the winning run for Milwaukee against Cleveland ace Gaylord Perry, 20-12. Pirates lead Cards., LA needs only three By BRUCE LOWITT AP Sports Writer Willie Slargell was playing hurl. Bui that was nothing compared lo the pain he was inflicting on the St. Louis Cardinals. "This time of the year, you've just gol lo play with pain and forget about it. There's no tomorrow," Pittsburgh's huge slugger said Tuesday nighl afler his three-run homer helped power the Pirales pas I Ihe Cards in more ways than one. His 24lh homer of the year not only contribuled mightily to the Bucs' 7-3 victory, but it helped vault them over St. Louis and into a one-half game lead in the National League Easl. In Ihe West Division, Los Angeles' comfortable lead got even cozier as the Dodgers beat Allanla 2-1 in 10 innings. They remained five games ahead of Cincinnali and reduced their pennant-clinching magic number lo Ihree. In olher National League games, Cincinnati beat Houston 5-1, Philadelphia downed New York 6-3, San Diego edged San Francisco 3-2 and, in a doubled header, Chicago beat Montreal 6-4 before the Expos bounced back to romp 11-2 in the second game. Dodgers 2, Braves 1 The Dodgers can clinch a tie for the West Division crown in their last home game tonight. "It would be great to do it at home," said Ron Cey, whose eighth-inning home run brought the Dodgers into a 1-1 eighth- inning tie, Braves knuckleballer Phil Niekro had one-hit Los Angeles before Cey homered. Then, in the lOlh, Sieve Yeager doubled wilh Iwo out, the Dodgers loaded the bases on two walks and Yeager dashed home when catcher Johnny Dales couldn'l handle one of Niekro's flutter- ing pilches. Reds 5, Astros 1 Johnny Bench signaled for a hil-and-run play, Ihen did both, breaking a tie with a triple in a three-run fifth inning to help the Reds defeat Houston and keep alive Cincinnati's flickering pennant hopes. Phils 6, Mets 3 Shorlslop Larry Bowa banged out three hits and knocked in two runs while Greg Luzinski hit a three-run homer in the Phillies' victory over New York. Padres 3, Giants 2 Pinch-hitter John Grubb's sacrifice fly in the seventh inning lifted the Padres over San Francisco. Cubs 6-2, Expos 4-11 Willie Davis knocked in four runs, three wih a homer, and Gerry Carter drove in three to give Montreal a split after Rick Monday and Bill Madlock hit Iwo home runs apiece in the Cubs' first-game win. Shreveport team tabbed Steamers SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) The Shreveport Steamer, formerly the Houston Texans, faces a rugged opening in this new home town tonight against ) a WoHd Football League powerhouse, the Memphis South-;.men. "It's a tough group to open .againstj" said new Coach Marshall Taylor, "but we'll find out where we stand real quick." The Memphis Southmen whipped the former Texans 45-0 Ihe last time they met. Taylor said he has had only two days of practice with his squad. He was named head coach last week in Birming- ham, Ala., after James Garrett was fired for remarks deemed delrimenlal to the league. Garrett reportedly referred to Shreveport as "rinky-dink." Shreveport has a metropolitan population of 335,000 and a team spokesman said he expects 30,000 to show up for the opener tonight. The Texans averaged only 16,000 fans while they were compiling a 3-8-1 record, dropping lo an all-time Astrodome low of 6,000 in their last Houston game. "Coming to Shreveport has been a tremendous lift," Taylor said Tuesday. 25 26 27 28 29 Solunar Tables The schedule of Solunar Periods, as printed below, has been taken from Richard Alden Knight's SOLUNAR.

(AP) Arkansas State University Coach Bill Davidson is worried about first-game jitlers...again. The Indians were scheduled to iron oul any lillle problems againslSoulhweslern Louisiana Sept. 7, bul Hurricane Carmen scrapped Ihe plan. Now, ASU's opener is Saturday at Jonesboro against Louisiana Tech, winner of 14 straight—the longest winning streak of any NCAA team in the nation. The Indians already had plenty of incentive. La. Tech has not lost a Southland Conference game since joining the SLC three years ago and then there's the opening of ASU's new stadium. "There's no way we won't be mentally ready to play a ball Wheels flat, Stars moving NEW YORK (AP) - The De- lroil Wheels and New York Slars were too stunned to pay any attention to the outcome of their World Football League game Tuesday night. Before the Wheels dropped a 37-7 decision to the Stars, losing for the 12th time in their 13- game history, they were informed that the club had filed a bankruptcy petilion in U.S. Dis- Iricl Courl. Afler Ihe Stars recorded their eighth Iriumph in 13 starts to move within one-half game of the East Division-leading Florida Blazers, they were told by Coach Babe Parilli that the club was being purchased and moved to Charlotte, N.C. "I still don'l believe it," said New York defensive end Gerry Philbin. "You would think this team could make it in New York." Philbin wasn't distracted by the fact that there already are two pro football teams here, competing for the inflation-riddled football dollar. The shock of;, lhe;;;pr,e-ganie _.,., _...-.„_,..-_ announcement showed" in "the ~thrhine'leading ladders from yame," Davidson said. "I think our players want to have a tjood-season. I think they're aware of our situation with Louisiana Tech and the stadium. "The thing we're concerned about is making the kind of mistakes people make in the first ball game. We're afraid of jumping offsides, not being real sharp, not reacting- to stunts and being unable to sustain an offensive drive." Davidson described the Bulldogs as the "kind of football team that takes advantage of any mistake." ASU had no game film to trade since it had no game, but the Indians scouted La. Tech in a 16-7 victory over Illinois State and last week's 42-15 romp over the University of Texas at Arlington. "I think they've got a pretty good book on us, anyway," Davidson said. "There's no way we can have a closed practice with this construction going on. There may be somebody in a hard-hat watching us." Gone from the Bulldogs' 1973 national championship team is quarterback Denny Duron and wide receiver Roger Carr, a first-round draft choice. Davidson said tight end Mike Barbeer had succeeded Carr as the Bulldogs' big-play man. "He has the same kind of speed Carr had. Because he's the tight end, they can get him in a mismatch against a linebacker or strong safety and he can run pas I you." Sieve Haynes, a sophomore, has replaced Duron. "We Ihink he's a good one," Davidson said. "They just never have a bad one." Tailback Charles McDaniel and fullback Roland Harper do most of the runner. Davidson has great respect for both. McDaniel, who is called "Quick-six," has scored four touchdowns this year and has 41 for his career. "He runs inside as well as he does outside. He is a complete football player." --.-Davidson's .defense-includes Wheels' play. Stars' runners cruised for 277 rushing yards — nearly three times the total offense Detroit produced. Don Highsmilh scored Iwo touchdowns for New York, both on one-yard runs, for enough points to beat Detroit. "The players were upset before the game when they learned the team had gone bankrupt. It was a bad bal- Igame all around," said Wheels' Coach Dan Boisture. "We are defunct or something, but I think we will slill play our nexl game if Ihe WFL keeps picking up the tab." Ike Thomas rambled 38 yards for a touchdown after recovering a fumble, Jim Ford scored on a Ihree-yard run and I^ee Bouggess bulled for a one- yard lally for Ihe other New York, er, Charlotte scores. 1973 ^ sn °uld be sound.
