Last year, Little Rock Parkview knocked off top-ranked North Little Rock Ole Main and lost the following week to North Little Rock Northeast. Parkview whipped top-ranked Northeast last week, but stayed on the winning track with an 18-16 victor}' over Pine Bluff Friday night. The top-ranked Patriots are 5-0 for the season and 3-0 in AAAA play. Fourth-ranked Pine Bluff has lost two games by a total of three points. Leonard Clay carried 20 times for 220 yards to lead second-ranked West Memphis to a 28-6 victory over Germantown, Tenn. Robert Farrell kicked what proved to be the deciding points as third-ranked Little Rock Central edged ninth-ranked Hot Springs 14-13. Fifth-ranked Northeast crushed Little Rock Mills 36-14. Sixth - ranked Texarkana remained unbeaten against Arkansas opposition with a 24-0 victory over Jacksonville. Seventh-ranked Blytheville had an easy time with Brinkley, 35-6. Rogers quarterback Tim Gregory scored one touchdown and set up another as the Mountaineers upset eighth- ranked Fort Smith Southside 13-7. Hot Springs Lakeside, No. 10, crushed Altheimer 46-0. The difference in the Parkview-Pine Bluff game turned out to be a second-quarter safety that occurred when the snap from center sailed over the punter's head. The two points gave the Patriots an 8*5 lead. A 26-yard field goal by Scott Riggan made it 11-3, but Pine Bluff cut the halftime margin to 11-9 on a dipsy-doodle pass play that went from Scott Irwin to split end John Perry to Ken Gathright. Parkview quarterback Jerry Barnett made it 18-9 on a nine- yard run in the third period. Andre Jackson's 12-yard scoring run cut it to 18-16 with 9:34 left in the game. Larry Wallace had a chance to win it for Pine Bluff, but his 28-yard field goal attempt was wide left with six minutes remaining. Germantown got off to a 6-0 lead, but Clay put the Blue Devils on top on a 52-yard scoring run. Clay also scored on a 28-yard run in the third period. Michael Hall scored twice for Central on short runs. His second TD broke a 7-7 tie with 10:13 left in the fourth period and Farrell added his second extra point. Hot Springs' Dale Marlow rambled 77 yards for a touchdown less than a minute later, but Steve Yearby's extra point attempt was wide left. George Pree's six-yard scoring run in the third period put Texarkana on top 9-0. The Razorbacks scored 15 points in the final 69 seconds of the game on a 35-yard run by quarterback Joey Bettis, a nine-yard scoring pass from Bettis to Terry Youngblood and a safety. Blytheville scored twice in the final three minutes of the second quarter on a 12-yard run by Don Davis and a 12-yard scoring pass from Bruce Hay to Gary Holmes. The first unit played little in the second half.

(4P]p the Rochester Red Wings of the International League know all about no-hit games. They have been involved in three of them this season. Chuck Ross of Pawtucket blanked them 4-0 on July 21. Prior to that masterpiece, Wayne Garland hurled a no-hitter for the Wings and Hank Webb of Tidewater tossed one against Rochester. BROCK LEADS WILLS LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lou Brock appears headed for a new one-season stolen base record. At the All-Star break, the St. Louis Cardinal outfielder had 60 steals. At that point Brock was 20 steals ahead of Maury Wills who pilfered a total of 104 bases for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1962. Wills calls Brock "the youngest 35-year-old" he's ever seen. Ira Berkow Exposing the padded patsies By Ira Berkow NEA Sports Editor NEW YORK - (NEA) - On the goal line, the owners' union proved more solid than the players' union. "Why ' remains a pertinent question — especially since there may be another such confrontation next season when the players union will surely crumble again. The players are, underneath it all, patsies. Why else would they have to wear more equipment than an Alpine backpacker or a scrawny hooker? For so long now, fans and owners alike were fooled. All along we thought the football players were bigger than life; now we know that they've actually been hiding in that mountainous zoot suit of a uniform. It was startling to see the football players union fold after gaining virtually none of the demands they made, while the baseball players' strike of two years ago was eminently sue- One thought was that baseball players are less cowed by authority figures. Baseball players are more individualistic; fewer have gone to college than football players^and .there: fore, one theory goes, they feel less guilty or fearful about bucking the man who controls "the scholarship. Regardless, it is true that many football players wear as much as 30 pounds of equipment to protect themselves from nicks and scratches and turf burns. Whatever happened to the real he-men, the guys who would risk bruises and frostbitten ears and play without shoulder pad or helmet? One may understand why a bald guy like Y.A. Tittle would wish to wear a helmet, and why a slope-shouldered individual like Joe Namath excitedly dons shoulder pads, but what about those other milquetoasts? It is the quintessence of sartorial puffery. There are some 25 different pieces of apparel these paper bruisers may tug on when they enter the locker room. There are, in fact, shoulder pads on top of shoulder pads. They are called auxiliary shoulder pads. Then the player adds rib pads in case an opponent tries to tickle him. , ,. Next come elbow pads, to prevent scuffing when crawling around in the dirt. Forearm pads are pulled on for similar l*a o c/"iri c True believers may doubt this one, but the football brute will next squirm into a girdle hip pad - to discourage a rival's pinches. Also, it makes the player look better. After all, some are a bit wobbly in places. And then, like the song, there are thigh guards connected to the shin guards connected to the knee pads . . . down to the male athlete's historic fig leaf. Those players with skin that chaps easily, they wear football gloves. Many linemen wear tape around their beefy mitts, to also prevent the gridiron equivalent of dishpan hands. . ,. Some players wear a harness. This is not because, as the canard goes, they are animals. It is because the player might have a crick in the neck. Or it's cold, and an outright handsewn muffler might just look too out-of-place on this alleged field of battle. Then the players tape their ankles, and put on sweat socks and hose - they call them hose - with the pretty colors of the team. Next, cleats. But with imitation turf, players are taking to rubber-soled shoes; because of the condensed heat they were developing blisters on their tootsies. Ask the Cowboys The face is a very special part of a football player's anatomy. He must be careful to protect his profile for the post- game interview television cameras, thus the special haberdashery. Not only does a player wear an impenetrable plastic helmet — for how would a head look on TV with a bunch of dents in it? — he also wears a face mask that looks like a steel muzzle, and a chin strap. Over all this they pull and yank on a jersey and pants: for decoration, there are insignias or fleurs de lis and horns and stars and lightning bolts and derricks and horseshoes and furry creatures and fish and fowl and wings and things, all adorned in colors from seal brown to Honolulu blue to shocking scarlet. As for his toilette, the player will blacken his eyes not with mascara but with charcoal or shoe polish to help shade his eyes, he claims, from the glare of sun or night lights. He wears a form of lipstick, a lip ice to keep pucker soft. Some players wear contact lenses. Many wear false teeth or have capped teeth or insert mouth guards to keep their teeth adorable. Some players with long hair fuss with braids. Once, a visitor to a clubhouse before a game was stunned to witness a player administering to himself a coat of fingernail polish. Upon closer inspection, it turned out to be only iodine being dabbed on the pinkie. The original assumption was not all that odd. After all, in this new age, heroes all over the place are being unfrocked. —Hope (Ark.) photo by Koger Head That maybe what this furry, little creature maybe saying to the photographer. The only shooting that this squirrel will see or hear will be the click of the camera. This resident of Hope's squirrel population was found foraging through yards on East Second Street in search of the nuts that make up his diet. He shares no fear with his country cousins who are the target of many hunters during this time of vear. By HAL BOCK AP Sports Writer It is written in the Good Book of Football Axioms that passing yardage does not necessarily touchdowns make. Just ask the Dallas Cowboys. Item: Dallas quarterback Roger Staubach leads all National Football Conference passers with 725 yards—over 200 more than the next best total. Item: Drew Pearson of Dallas is the league's leading receiver with 21 catches for 372 yards. Item: The Cowboys have managed just 40 points in their first three games, losing two of those contests. Dallas tries to turn things around as the National Football League season enters its fourth week Sunday. It won't be easy, because the Cowboys must face Minnesota, one of the NFL's three unbeaten and untied teams. The others are New England, hosting winless Baltimore, and St. Louis, which plays at San Francisco. Elsewhere, Washington plays at Cincinnati, Buffalo is at Green Bay, Denver visits Kand sas City, Oakland plays at Cleveland, Los Angeles hosts Detroit, Pittsburgh is at Houston, Philadelphia plays in San Diego, New Orleans visits Chicago and Atlanta plays the New York Giants in New Haven. The New York Jets play at Miami in Monday night's nationally televised game. Statistically, the NFL's first three weeks have provided few surprises. For example, the American Conference's leading rushers care record-smashing O.J. Simpson of Buffalo and Larry Csonka of Miami with 258 yards and 236 respectively. That's exactly the way they finished last year when Simpson gained 2,003 and Csonka 1,003. The leading National Conference rusher is Minnesota's Chuck Foreman, last season's Offensive Rookie of the Year.
