Ninth-ranked Hot Springs Lakeside beat Camden 42-7 Thursday night. Parkview's first trick play did not fool Tyrone Short. An end-around pass by Charles Clay was intercepted by Short and returned to the Patriots' 37. Mike Scott's second touch- down of the game put Hall on' top. Parkview took the ensuing kickoff and moved 55 yards in 16 plays for the winning touchdown, i Hall's Doug Parrish missed a 33-yard field goal attempt in the second half. Central's Michael Perry scored twice from seven yards out to give the Tigers a 13-0 lead.

I.ee Prultt's 34-yard field goal accounted for all the scoring in the first half of the Northeast- Ole Main contest. The Chargers iced the victory when Andrew Love raced three yards to complete a 38-yard drive with 1:12 left in the third quarter. The drive began after John Houser recovered a fumble. Kirk Miller's 19-yard touchdown run late in the third period and a 23-yard field goal by Mike Conway were too much for Hot Springs. Mayflower 36, Arkansas Deaf 0 By Murray Olderman The tipoff: Next clamor for rule change in the NFL will be to outlaw the three-man defensive line, a strategy which is sweeping pro ball (it's already the basic defense in Houston and New England) and" complicating life for quarterbacks. Joe Namath calls it the greatest threat of all to offensive football. Q. Could you list the top teams in professional football with the best won-and-lost records, starting with the original NFL and going through the All-America Conference and finally the merger with the AFL? - R. P. Arata, Oakland. Calif. That sounds like a tall order but the records show that the most successful team in the history of professional football has been the Cleveland Browns, with a combined record (regular season and championship games) of 264 victories and 92 defeats (excluding ties) since they were organized in 1946. That's a winning rate of 74 per cent. In second place, rather surprisingly, are the Kansas City Chiefs with a compilation of 119 wins, 67 losses for a victory percentage of 64. Third are the Chicago Bears with 63 per cent but whose 407 victories are the most in the history of the game. The Oakland Raiders (112-73) are fourth, followed by the Baltimore Colts (166-109) and the Green Bay Packers (373-247). Q. Friends and 1 disagree on scoring in softball rules. 1 say, credit for a sacrifice fly can only be given when a runner advances from third to home. They say it also can count for advancement from first to second and second to third. What's your opinion? — Bob Rice, Cincinnati, 0. Your'friends are wrong. As in major league baseball, a sacrifice flv results only from advancement, third to home. Ned Shaheen, a movie producer who heads the Western Softball Congress, advises me that only differences between baseball and softball are the distances between the bases (90 feet vs. 60 feet), between the mound and home plate (60 feet 6 inches vs. 46 feet 6 inches) and the fact that in softball, no runner can take a lead on base until the ball leaves the pitcher's hand. Q. What's holding back Pat Sullivan as a pro quarterback? They say he's too small but he's listed as six feet tall. And that's the same height listed for such successful veteran quarterbacks as Fran Tarkenton and Bill Kilmer. — Jack Alexander, Birmingham, Ala. The difference is in how they throw the ball. 1 don't mean the accuracy of their pitchers — as a Heisman Trophy winner at Auburn, Pat showed he could deliver the ball. But he takes an ultra-long stride when pitching, the net effect of which is to diminish his lane of vision against big rushing linemen. The Atlanta Falcons still have some hope he'll come through for them. Theoretically, as a third year man, he's still in the learning stages. Q. 1 understand there are two Bukovich brothers, Tony and Michael, honored in the Hall of Fame instituted for hockey in 1973 at Eveleth, Minn. Could you tell me where Tony played as a pro and what their salaries were at that time? - William White, Anaheim, Calif. Tony Bukovich, a native of Painesdale, Mich., came to the Detroit Red Wings in 1943 from the amateur Parisilian Hockey Club. He played three games as a left wing that season and scored one assist. He got into 14 games the next year and scored seven goals and two assists. The pay in those days was about $5,000 a year. Q. What ever happened to Luis Aparicio of the Red Sox and Tommie Agee of the Astros? — Russ Graham, Tucson, Ariz. Luis, released this spring after a grand 18-year career, went back to his native Venezuela, well-heeled and able to indulge his passion for hunting and fishing. Agee, who lost it all mysteriously at the relatively young age of 31, was released by the Los Angeles Dodgers'the same day Aparicio was cut (March 26 of this year) and has plenty of time to run his bar near Shea Stadium, site of his greatest glories for the New York Mets. Parting shot: Whatever happened to the gracious old-fashioned sports event without commercial breaks, halftime stunts, or TV pitches by the participants? The same thing that happened to the nickel cup of coffee. a Berkow NBA Sports Editor The sun's morning rays were already growing warm as they spilled in an orange stream across the East River, and then onto the concrete promenade where Kathy Swiuer ran. A boat horn sounded; birds were in the trees. She felt easy and light. It was a beautiful morning. And when she heard the footsteps behind her she turned and looked, more out of instinctive curiosity than •' lo rfn. A hundred or so yards behind, she saw a man in sweatshirt and sweat pants in a leisurely trot — obviously a fellow jogger. Subconsciously she felt relieved about that. Kathy has had some uncomfortable experiences while jogging alone. Now, she always clips a pencil-thin aerosol can of "dog spray" to the drawstring of her sweat pants, to ward off some dogs and some people. One afternoon several months ago, while jogging through Central Park, five tough-looking youths jumped out of the bushes. As Kathy came up hill in her 18th mile, the boys made lip-smacking sounds, and said how they liked her long legs and supple body. She recalls now that she was too tired even to be scared, paid them no heed, jogged around them and continued doiyn.the hill. They were too stunned by her insouciance to follow. When she runs on the promenade, she runs along the iron barrier beside the river, as opposed to running close to the park area. It is similar to the precaution' of the gunfighter who always sits in a saloon with his back to the wall. The footsteps were coming closer behind her. She did not turn around this time. Just another case of fragile male ego, she said to herself. Men often pass her, she believes, because they don't like the feeling of running behind a woman. Anyway, she did not want to think further about those footsteps. Kathy was in training for an important race for her, the Olympic Airways- sponsored New York City marathon fun of 26 miles, 385 yards. In the last year she has made tremendous progress in her times. She says she has cut 20 minutes oft her time. With blue eyes smiling, she adds that she has lost 20 pounds, too. This marathon event is inv portant because she hopes to run it in less than three hours, a feat she equates to a tnilef breaking the four-minute barrier. And the satisfaction of such improvement over the year has been euphoric, she says. "The feeling - that you are doing all you can to be the best you can — is incredible," she has said. Kathy received national attention when she became the first female to run in the Boston Marathon, in 1967, when she was a 19-year-old college student at Syracuse University. She had signed the application form K..V. Switzer," and wore a hooded sweatshirt on this rainy day. She was finally discovered when the day brightened and she removed her excess clothing while running. The Marathon's co-director, Jock Semple, a white-haired Scotsman, believing she was desecrating the event, gave her hell with his brogue and tried to rip the number off her back. Fellow runners came to her aid, and she remained in the race to the finish. Later, the Amateur Athletic Union barred her and other women from competing with men (she had run distance on her college - team, too). She successfully fought that ruling, with the help of others. In 1972 she was running in the Boston Marathon again, but this time legally. Kathy Switzer has been striving since the Boston Marathon of 1967 to earn a place for herself and other women athletes in the male- dominated sports world. She feels women, even in athletic events, are always looked at as women first and athletes last, by officials, some participants and many spectators. She recalls in her first Boston Marathon when, after some 20 miles, she was so fatigued she could hardly keep her eyes open. Strangely, she heard clapping. She opened an eye and saw an elderly IN THE 1972 BOSTON MARATHON, a wire service photographer happened to catch Kathy fixing her hair in mid-stride. The picture made sports pages all over the country. couple alongside the road, and the lady was applauding. Kathy figured the lady was cheering her perseverance. As Kathy jogged by, she held her head high, and overhead the lady say, "Look dearie, isn't that cute — it's a girl and she's wearing earrings!" Now the slapping steps behind her got closer, louder. A sudden wash of panic came over Kathy. The man shot his arm around her neck. He stuck a steak knife under her ear. Kathy couldn't scream; the sound was caught in the pit of her stomach. "Gimme your money," he said. "I'm gonna cut you." He was about 5-8, an inch or so taller than she. He weighed about 160 pounds, some 35 pounds more than Kathy. His arm around her neck was viselike. She heard her voice, coming from some distant place, sayifif ( sd absurdly rational in this monstfbus hloment, "Bat you can plainly see I have no money. "Come with me, he said. He began pulling her toward the cluster of trees and bushes. "I'm gonna aut you*" Sights apd sounds and thoughts swirled for Kathy. The trees, the sun, the concrete, the smell of the man, the pressure of his muscles, the squashing of her neck, the sparkle of the river, the knife point jabbing the flesh behind her ear. Thoughts of rape, of no help nearby, of being slashed and, how crazy it seemed later in the telling, the rage at how unfair that all her vigorous training for the marathon should be washed away in a pool of her own blood. She knew she had to get her hand on that aerosol can clipped to her sweatpants, and hidden under her warmup jacket. The man wasn't aware of Kathy's attempt to get the can. She knew even under this great pressure that she could not make a mistake, had to be precise, couldn't drop the can, had to get the hole pointed in the exact direction. She touched the can. And now everything went fantastically slow, like in a dream sequence. She brought the can up, spraying all the way. She remembers seeing the stream of spray — the sun filtering through it — rising from the man s waist to his chest to his neck to his chin and into his eyes. The man clutched his eyes and ran blindly off. Kathy dashed in the opposite direction. She got to a phone and called her friend Phillip at their apartment. He called the police. Kathy, shaken, soon pulled herself together and a couple of hours later was in her office, working at her public relations job AMF, a sports equipment company. And after work, before dark, she jogged her regular evening route of 10 miles. Kathy Switzer still had a marathon to run. Series opens today at L.A. By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — Center stage moved out of the Oakland clubhouse today as the colorful, controversial A's start swinging at the Los Angeles Dodgers in the opening game of baseball's 71st World Series.

The big question mark is Oakland superstar Reggie Jackson, an uncertain starter because of a pulled hamstring in his right leg. Jackson performed as a designated hitter in the playoffs, a position which doesn't exist in the World Scries, and said he would not know until game time whether he'd piny today. Jackson lined some good shots to the outfield in Friday's bat aiig practice, jogged easily around Dodger Stadium's red- clay (running track and announced that he felt little pain. "I was only running at 80 per cen. capacity, though," he said. The combative A's staged another of their clubhouse fights Friday. According to witnesses, pitcher Blue Moon Odom made a personal remark to ace reliever Rollie Fingers. Fingers ''barged Odom, blows were ex•-hanged and Fingers wound up wuh five stitches in his head. 1. was later learned by The Associated Press that Odom su Ifc red a sprained and badly bruised left ankle in the fight and his status for the World Scries was in doubt Friday nigh..

With Jimmy Wyrin having his finest season—32 home runs and 108 RBI—the Dodgers led the National League in homers with 139. They also hit .272, second in the major leagues. The Dodgers deal in power, pitching and speed, and their style closely parallels their formidable opponents. Both teams have superlative running threats in the No. 1 and No. J batting positions. Dave Lopes, the Dodger leadoff batter and cockiest of their young breed, stole 58 bases dur- inu the season. No. 2 man Bill Buckner batted .314 and stole 31 bases. Ben Campaneris, the A's leadoff batter, had 34 steals this season and Bill North was the American League bases- tcaling champ with 54. Both teams have explosive 34-5 hitters. Sieve Garvey was the Dodgers' big run-producer wuh 111 RBI and Sal Bando led the A's with 103. The Dodgers boast an effective and sometimes overpowering pitching staff headed by Messersmith and Don Sutton, 19-9. Mike Marshall, who made a record 106 appearances, is the equal of any relief pitcher in the business. The A's staff is similar, but they have three strong starters GETS NEW PACT AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — Coach Ben Martin's contract was to have expired at the end of this year. But it has been "torn up." Martin recently signed a new contract to coach the Cadets football team through 1978. Martin is in his 17th season as coach of the Falcon eleven.

The A's have a slight edge in defense in the outfield and infield, bui. will have to be careful with the infield layout at Dodger Stadium. It's crushed brick, and baseballs leap into the outfield.
