Mays referred to a 78-yard dnve thai took 11 plays, climaxed by his pass to Willie Frazier. "It was a great effort on the part of the offensive line," Mays said. Hi took over for starting quarterback E. C. Nobles in the third quarter after Nobles fumbled while trying to pick up a first down near midfield. Mays played the rest of the game. Shreveporl look a 7-0 lead on the first play from scrimmage on 63-yard pass play from Nobles to a wide open Rick Eber, who caught the ball at the Wheel 30 and went in untouched. It was the longest scoring play in the Steamer's history, and head Coach Marshall Taylor said it was planned ahead of time.

Parkview was superb last week, thrashing top-ranked North Ijttle Ro k Northeast 27-6 to lake ovtr the No. 1 spot in the slate. Parkview's offense is sirnpk—fujlback inside, quarterback off-.ackje and tailback o-jviide—but it is giving opponents headaches.

I.R PARKVIEW 14, PINE BLUFF 7. Ole Main and E! Dorado are each 1-3 in league play. El Dorado is coming off a nortconference loss to Texarkana. Ole Main may have found some much-needed of- fcast in last week's 21-20 victory over Little Rock Hall. I^st week's record was 35-12, a .744 mark which raised the .-x.-a.son record lo 135-58, a .700 mark. Hope Star Sports Goodbyes said to vear Detroit Coach Danny Boisture said it was "a wellpconceived play and Eber simply beat our safety man." When the Steamer powered ahead for the winning touchdown in the final period, "our defense just wore down," Boisture added. Detroit went ahead late in the second quarter with a 21-yard scoring pass from Bubba Wyche to Perry Phillips and a pass to Billy Sadler for the extra points. Then, on the first play of the fourth period, Detroit's Rocky Izmt4 ran a Steamer punt back from his own 22 to the Stamer 21 and set up a field goal by Eric CJuthrie. Shreveporl's Charlie Durkee had missed on a 52-yard field goal attempt with five seconds left in ihe half. Steamer Jim Nance was the game's leading rusher with 137 yards. Shreveport now is 4-9-1 for the season. Detroit dropped to 1-13. The victory, before an announced crowd of 22,012, came after five consecutive losses, including one to Memphis last week in the Steamer's first uame since moving from Houston to Shreveport. Porkers FAYETTEVTLLE, Ark. ,'AP; — Waymon Hawkins, who spent one day at fullback, was back on the Arkansas Razorback defense Wednesday at his own request. Teddy Barnes will fill the vacancy at fullback left by Hawkins. The Razorbacks went through a short drill Wednesday preparing fo. tHir Southwest Conference football game with Texas Christian University Saturday night in Fort Worth. The team wore pads but went through mostly noncontacU work with emphasis' on the^" kicking game. "We worked on all phases — field goals, punts and kickoffs," said Coach Frank Broyles. "I think the team knows what has to be done." The Razorbacks also spent some time on the passing phase of the offensem They have completed passes for a total of only 19 yards so far this year. "I feel confident we will complete passes when we have to," said Broyles.

They said goodbye to Al Ka- Ime. finishing 22 illustrious seasons. And they booed ferociously when the goodbye came prematurely. They said goodbye to Ken Aspromonte. about to be replaced by Frank Robinson, major league baseball's first black manager. And they said goodbye to the season. There were 24.812 fans on hand. Not a bad crowd for a baseball game. The only problem was, it was the crowd that , showed up for the entire American lyeague Wednesday, But then, that's what happens when everything's tied up in a couple of neat little bundles when nothing counts — except for the record books, the drives for the post-season awards, the pushes for next year's salary boost ... and for those hardcore fans. Orioles 5, Tigers 4 Baltimore, relaxing after Tuesday's pennant clinching, used plenty of reserves and still beai the Tigers. Enos Cabell, whose two-run, lie-breaking double in the seventh inning enabled the Orioles to conclude the regular-season with their ninth consecutive triumph. Kaline was happy to see his career concluded. "I'm glad it's over. I really am. I don't I'll miss il." He got ovations in UK first and third innings when he bat*ed. In the fifth, the crowd sorted booing loudly. They had spotted Ben Oglivie in the on- deck circle instead of Kaline. It turned out that Kaline's noi ...

"Bud" Campbell of Little Rock, 51, was killed early today in a one-car crash at 9300 Rodney Parham Road in Little Rock. Campbell, who was sports director of Little Rock television station KATV, came to the station in 1966 after working for KARK radio and television stations at Little Rock for eight years.

Police said Campbell had attended a birthday party after his regular 10 p.m. newscast Wednesday night and was following an individual in another car to a Little Rock apartment after the parly when the accident occurred. Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles said today that he was deeply sadden by Campbell's death. He called Campbell a "close personal friend" and a "friend of everyone in Arkansas. "I admired his abilities and tireless efforts that he puts into his work. My family and my• self share the grief of his wife and family," Broyles said. Robert Doubleday of Little Rock, KATV president, said today that Campbell's death was a deep personal loss to him as well as the Arkansas sports community. "He (Campbell) was a real professional," Doubleday added. .

It was the Indians who, in 1947, bad the American League's first black player, Larry Doby. Robinson said goodbye to his 1974 playing days with a bang, driving in two runs, one of them with his 22nd homer of the year and 574th of his career. But it was Rusty Torres' homer, opening a two-run ninth, that enabled Gaylord Perry to finish at 21-13.

"I just thank God we were able to do it." The Lord may have helped but Chicago catcher Steve Swisher didn't hurt either as the Pirates clinched the National League East Division championship Wednesday night with a wild 5-4, 10-inning victory over the Cubs. Chicago had the game won with two out and a man on third in the bottom of the ninth. Cubs' right-hander Rick Reuschel struck out pinch hitter Bob Robertson for what would have been the final out but Swisher let the pitch get away from him for a passed ball and Sanguil- len raced home from third to send the game into overtime. One inning later Sanguillen drove in the winning run with a bases-loaded infield single and the Bucs were on their way to the National League playoffs. They wind up Hi games ahead of the runnerup St. Louis Cardinals who were rained out at Montreal. That game will not be made up. The Pirates start the best-of- five NL playoffs Saturday afternoon against Los Angeles in Pittsburgh. Chicago unloaded on Pirate starter Jim Rooker for four runs in the first and the Bucs spent the rest of the night playing catch-up. Robertson, who celebrated his 28th birthday Wednesday by turning in the game's big play — the clutch ninth-inning strikeout — drenched Manager 'Danny Murlaugh, a non-drinker, with a gallon of milk. Braves 13, Reds 0 . Hank Aaron closed out his eventful season with his 20th homer, No. 733 lifetime, but refused to say it was his last game.

CLEVELAND (AP) - Frank Robinson, for two decades one of baseball's greatest players and competitors, today was named the first black manager in the 105-year history of major league baseball. Robinson, 39, the game's fourth all-time leading home run hitter and the only player ever to be Most Valuable Player in both leagues, was named to succeed Ken Aspromonte as manager of the Cleveland Indians at a salary estimated at $180,000 a year. At the news conference at which Robinson's appointment was announced by General Manager Phil Seghi, the 39- year-old superstar received a telegram of congratulations from President Ford. The elevation of Robinson ended a years-long struggle by blacks to be elevated to a meaningful management position in baseball. It places Robinson in charge of a team which has a top white pitcher who has publicly criticized him and a black centerfielder who has been accused of being hard to handle. The announcement, made at a Cleveland news conference attended by Commissioner Bowie Kuhn and other officials, came 27 years, five months and 19 days after Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier as a player. Ii came almost two years after the greying, blinding Jackie Robinson made his last public appearance at a World Series, and said he wished he could one dav see a member of his race managing a major league team. Jackie, who was no relation to Frank, died soon thereafter, his final baseball dream unfulfilled. The telegram from President Ford called Robinson's elevation to the managing position welcome news. Ford said it was a tribute to Robinson "personally, to your athletic skills and your unsurpassed leadership." For Robinson, today ended a public struggle he began in 1969 to be a baseball manager. He often said it did not matter if he was ihe first of his race to gain the position; he just wanted to manage.) For the next five winters Robinson went to the Puerto Rican Winter League, managing the Santurce team to a pair of league titles. Three times during the past season managing positions came open, but neither Robinson nor any other black got them. Frustration appeared overwhelming on their part that they may never get one. But Robinson did today, and he did it saying he knew he faced problems and that his every action would be under the microscope of the news media and the public.
