*wt HOPfc (ARK.) STAR Friday, September 2t, Hope to face Cards The Hope Bobcats will travel to Camden Fail-view to take on the Cardinals in a 7-AA conference game. The Bobcats will try to get back on the winning track following a 19-7 loss to the Arkadelphia Badgers. The Bobcats are sporting a 12 season record and 0-2 conference mark. The lone win of the season for the locals came in a 20-0 shutout of the Prescott Curley Wolves. "We're expecting a real tough ballgame because we're kind of injured up. We have four captains who will not be suiting out because of injuries," said Coach Lawrence Hutson. Mike Powell with a back injury, Willard Willhom, Larry Butler and Larry Johnson, all with knee injuries, will be out of uniform for the Bobcats. According to Hutson, the locals will have a total of ten players not dressing out for the Pair- view game. The game will pit the 7-AA's top two rushing teams against each other. Fairview's offense is based on Terry Alexander who rushed for 219 yards on 45 carries last week in the Card's 7-0 victory over Ashdown. Ashdown defeated Hope in the opening game season opener, 17-0. Tjfe Fairview running backs have accumulated 586 yards on the ground to lead the 7-AA conference. Hope is second with 568 yards. "Fairview has got a strong defense. They have given up only seven points in three games," Hutson said. Those points were given up to Camden in the Cards' only defeat of the year. Camden won, 7-0. In addition to the Ashdown victory, the cards own a 20-0 decision over Gurdon. Starting a quarterback for the Bobcats will be Mark Harris. A pair of sophomores, twins Slick and Curley Davis, will be alternating at tailback to replace the injured Larry Johnson and Bobby Jones. James Robinson, a back-up quarterback, will see action at the flanker position. Hope ^ Star Sports Bucsiiiove to top takes on OSU, Bucks by 7 points Arkansas portraying Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde LITTLE ROCK (AP) Which will it be this week. Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde? Arkansas looked like world- beaters in the season opener, whipping Southern California 22-7. Last Saturday, the Razorbacks looked like something less, losing 26-7 to Oklahoma State. Arkansas takes on Tulsa Saturday at Fayetteville. "We've got to come back and be' the team that we were against Southern California," said Arkansas Coach Frank Boryles. . The Razorbacks' defense performed admirably last week, but the offense kept the pressure on. Tulsa will throw a bunch. The Golden Hurricane has thrown 62 passes while losing to Kansas State and beating North Texas State. Tulsa Coach F. A. Dry calls the pass a "basic part" of the Hurricane offense. Arkansas' defense has allowed only one touchdown— that late in the OSU game. The secondary was superb against Pat Haden, Southern Cal's fine passer. Maybe this is the week the offense' gets going;' «; ARKANSAS 21pTULSA 14. Arkansas State University will have incentive galore this week. The Indians play Louisiana Tech Saturday at Jonesboro. Tech is No. 1 in the nation in the college division poll. The Bulldogs have not lost a Southland Conference game since joining the SLC three years ago. And, the Indians are opening their new stadium. In addition to incentive, the Indians have ability. An upset in the making? ASU 14, LA. Tech 13. An early line on the Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference race is expected this weekend at Russellville where Henderson plays Arkansas Tech. Henderson is the preseason choice in the conference. Tech showed promise with a 17-14 victory over Northeast Oklahoma last week. Henderson will not give up its title easily. HENDERSON 14, ARKANSAS TECH 10.

(AP) — Fond memories are a no-no for football teams. ,,Let Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles explain: ;"We were a little bit bullheaded last week because of our success against Southern Cal," Broyles said. "We won't be bull-headed this week." Arkansas threw only twice in a 22-7 upset of Southern California in the 1974 season opener. The Razorbacks threw one pass in the .first half last week against Oklahoma State although the running game was nonexistent—41 yards on. 26 ; finishing plays in the first Half. In fact, Arkansas made only two first downs on its first 12 possessions and lost 26-7. "We were very conservative on offense," Broyles said. "We've got to throw more on first down." The Razorbacks match 1-1 records with Tulsa Saturday at Fayetteville. Broylesi had trouble explaining Arkansas' reversal. "Oklahoma State had a good team, we knew they had a chance to be a great team. We had hoped that the momentum that we got from the USC game Baseball Scores By The Associated Press National League East W L Pet.

W 8 6 5 5 L 4 6 7 7 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Southern Methodist can add to its reputation as a college football giant killer Saturday when they take on No, 1 Ohio State.'' 1 The Mustangs have stunned nonconference opponents the last two times they have faced top-ranked powers. In 1963, No. 1 Navy, with Roger Staubach at quarterback, fell to SMU, 32-28. Two years later, top-ranked Purdue, with Bob Griese at the helm, settled for a 14-14 standoff. "It would make SMU's season if they could beat us," admitted Ohio State Coach Woody Hayes. "We're simply not going to let that happen." Oddsmakers agree. The Buckeyes are a 37-point favorite to make the Mustangs their 14th victim in Ohio Stadium, ready for another sellout of more than 87,000. In other Saturday games involving top-ranked teams, Purdue visits No. 2 Notre Dame; Utah State plays at third-rated Oklahoma; Vanderbilt travels to No. 4 Alabama, -and Navy takes on No. 5 Michigan. No. 6 Texas will be at Texas Tech; No. 7 Arizona State faces Missouri; ninth-ranked Texas A&M is at Washington; No. 18 Southern California plays No. 8 Pitt, and Northwestern takes on No. 10 Nebraska. For SMU, the defensive problems are numerous. "You can elaborate on any phase of their game," said SMU Coach Dave Smith. The foremost Ohio State weapon is tailback Archie Griffin.

The Indians open their season Saturday at 1:30 p.m. against top-ranked Louisiana Tech in ASU's new Indian Stadium. Davidson said the Tribe had been working on recognition of Tech's offensive and defensive sets all week. He said his team has nearly everything down pat. Most of the drill Thursday was devoted to the kicking game and Davidson said he was pleased with all aspects of it. The Indians will losen up in a 15-minute drill today to complete the week's practice schedule. RAZOKBACK FOOTBALL FACTS The Razorbacks' 16-2 triumph over Georgia in the 1969 Sugar Bowl remains Arkansas' most surprising bowl victory. Although the Hogs were co-champions of the SWC, they were heavy underdogs to a more experienced Georgia team. The Bulldogs were Southeast Conference champions with an 8-0-2 record. Georgia figured to completely snuff the sophomore laden offense of the Razorbacks, but it was the Arkansas defense that rose to the occasion by intercepting four passes and recovering five fumbles. Early in the second quarter, Chuck Dicus grabbed a 27 yard Bill Montgomery pass for the game's only touchdown. Georgia retaliated by dropping Bill Burnett for a safety, but Bob White kicked a field goal to give Arkansas a 10-2 halftime lead. Neither team was able to score in the third quarter as defense dominated the game. Bat White put the young Razorbacks out of reach with two fourth quarter field goals.

Greene has hit 11 of 15 for 157 yards. The Mustangs' upset hopes will revolve around quarterback Ricky Wesson, a sophomore who guides SMU's Wishbone attack. "Wesson has 9.7 dash speed," said Ohio State scout Dick Walker. "They try to free the quarterback to the outside. Our defensive ends will have to play a great game." Walker called the offensive line SMU's strength. However, it suffered a blow this week when center Mike Smith's NCAA suspension was upheld by a district court judge. Smith had started the first two games with a temporary injunction. The NCAA charged him with accepting a rent-free apartment for himself and his expectant wife in 1973. NEW YORK (AP)-- The Pittsburgh Pirates were shot, mentally and physically. They had lost a gut-busting game in St. Louis Wednesday night, with the Cardinals scoring four runs in the bottom of the l.lth inning for a 13-12 victory. Now it was Thursday morn. ing — 5 a.m. EOT, to be exact — and the Pirates were just getting into New York, a second-place team again. They trailed the front-running Cardinals by one-half game in the National League East. And they were coming to Shea Stadium, scene of a series of nightmares last year when they had folded and helped the Mets win the title. But Manager Danny Murtaugh put the whole matter into perspective in about 10 seconds, just before the Pirates went to sleep in the predawn hours. "Forget last night... forget last year," he told them. "Just think about tonight." And on Thursday night, the nightmare belonged to the Mets, thanks mainly to Al Oliver and Willie Stargell. Oliver, batting third in the Pirates' lineup, went 5-for-5, with a run-scoring single and his 10th and llth home runs of the year, each a two-run shot. And Stargell, batting fourth, drove in four runs with a single and a three-run homer, his 25th of the season. And with veteran Juan zarro, a refugee from the Mexican League, turning in eight solid innings of pitching, the Pi- .Meanwhile, in the National League West, the Los Angeles Dodgers reduced their pennant- clinching number to two* beating the San Diego Padres 5-2 in ifl innings.

The A's clinched at least a tie for the American League West Division title. Thursday's victory coupled with Chicago's 5-1/ 7-2 doubleheader triumph over Texas took care of that. Oakland now leads the Rangers by six games. The A's would have to lose their last five games and Texas win their last seven in order to force a playoff for the division championship. The champagne is on order for tonight's game. Elsewhere, Boston beat Detroit 5-3 in 10 innings and Kansas City swamped California 101. Catfish Hunter hurled a seven-hitter for Oakland to notch his 25th victory, the most for an American League pitcher since Mickey Lolich won 25 for Detroit in 1971. Hunter, who has lost 12, struck out seven batters and didn't walk a man. Oakland picked up its first run off loser Dave Goltz in the first inning when rookie Claudell Washington singled with two out, stole second and scored on Sal Bando's single. The final A's run came in the fourth. Joe Rudi singled and came all the way home when Minnesota third baseman Eric Soderholm threw Gene Tenace's ground ball into right field. Hunter lost his shutout when Bobby Darwin homered with one out in the ninth. Chicago 5-7, Texas 1-2 "I don't feel good about anything right now," said a dejected Billy Martin, Texas manager. Jim Kaat posted his 20th victory with a five-hitter in the opener and Jorge Orta drove in three runs. Red Sox 5, Tigers 3,10 innings Bob Montgomery sent the game into overtime with a two- run homer in the ninth and then ended it with a two-run single in the 10th. Both of Montgomery's hits came off Tiger relief ace John Killer. Royals 10, Angels 1 Hal McRae clubbed a. grand slam home run and Steve Busby notched his 22nd victory for Kansas City. Busby, who has lost 14, struck out eight batters and walked two. ^ To-Day-Sept. 27,1974 Our '75 Models are here come by and look them over or just visit with us at— HOPE AUTO CO.
