STAR Monday, October 28, 191 Hope pulls off surprise, Panthers fall in 14-7 win By JOHN MAY Star Sportswritcr The Hope Bobcats stretched their winning streak to four as they upset the Magnolia Panthers, 14-7, last Friday night. The first quarter was scoreless as both teams failed to mount an offensive threat. Hope jumped to a f>-0 lead when Slick Davis scored from the one to climax a 77-yard drive. The drive started when Ixionard Brown intercepted a {'anther pass on the Bobcat 23. The point after attempt by Jud Martindale failed and with 10:51 left, Hope led 6-0. I^atcr, Magnolia intercepted a Mark Harris pass at the Panther 29. The Panthers then marched 71 yards with Paul Ross punching it in from the one. Konl Summerlin added the extra point as Magnolia led 7-6 at the half. The third quarter was scoreless as both teams had opportunities to score, but couldn't cash in on them. In the fourth quarter the Hope defense provided the big play. The defense held Magnolia and forced a punt. The snap from the center sailed over the punter's head and Hope's I^arry Johnson recovered the ball on the Panther 4. After Harris picked up two yards, Slick Davis carried in the winning score. The Bobcats elected to go for two and were successful as Harris found Davis on a short pass to make the score 14-7. But Magnolia wasn't finished. They carried the ball to Hope's 27 before the Bobcats stopped them. Hope ran out the clock to preserve the 14-7 victory. Magnolia outgained Hope, 197 to 183 for the Bobcats. They also had 10 first downs to Hope's 9. For the third straight game, Jim Rhodes intercepted an opponent's pass. Rhodes snagged one against Stamps and Crossett in previous games. Quarterback Mark Harris completed three passes in nine attempts for 74 yards. Harris had four picked off by Panther defenders. The victory gave the Bobcats a 5-3 season record with a 3-3 record in the 7AA conference. Friday, Hope meets the Camden Panthers at Hammons Stadium in 7AA conference. Game time is 7:30. Cardinals rolling along with undefeated record By KEN HAPPOPOKT AP Sports Writer After Sunday's 23-20 success over the Washington Redskins, the St. Ixmis Cardinals still look like supermen in the National Football league. It was the seventh straight victory for the irresislable Birds, the only unbeaten team in the NFL. Two of the biggest plays made by the Cardinals were touchdown passes by Jim Hart to Earl Thomas and Donny Anderson. It was no easy task, considering that the Redskins are one of the top defenders against the pass. "The biggest thing was giving me time to get rid of the ball," said Hart, having an extravagant season for the Cardinals. "Our offensive line did a fantastic job." Hart, who has been hot and cold throughout his NFL career, is currently hot —- the precise reason that the Cardinals are flying so high these days. While improving their sparkling record, the Cardinals tightened their hold on the Na- tional.Conference's Eastern Division while the Redskins dropped further down the ladder with a 4-3 record. The Redskins, off to their worst start under Coach George Allen, remained tied for second place with the Philadelphia Eagles, a 1-1-10 loser to the New Orleans Saints. In the other NFL games, the Ix)s Angeles Rams beat the New York Jets 20-13; the New Kngland Patriots defeated the Minnesota Vikings 17-14; the Buffalo Bills trimmed the Chicago Bears 16-6; the Miami Dolphins stopped the Baltimore Colts 17-7; the Oakland Raiders whipped the San Francisco 49ers 35-24; the Houston Oilers upset the Cincinnati Bengals 3421, the Cleveland Browns stunned the Denver Broncos 2321; the Dallas Cowboys downed the New York Giants 21-7; the Detroit Lions nudged the Green Bay Packers 19-17 and the Kansas City Chiefs turned back the San Diego Chargers 24-14. The Pittsburgh Steelers, leaders in the American Conference's Central Division, meet the Atlanta Falcons tonight in the weekly televised game. Rams 20, Jets 13 Lawrence McCutchfon scored two touchdowns 31 seconds apart in the fourth quarter to (xnver the Hams over the Jets. New York led 13-tf going into the fourth quarter before Mct'utcheon scored the gaint 1 - wmning points for I<os Angeles, the NFC's Western Division leaaer. Patriots 17, Vikiugs 14 .Jun I'huikett threw a 10-yard S'.'Oring pass to Bob Windsor with three seconds left to give "v w England a dramatic victo r, over Minnesota. Plunkclt led tin Patriots on an S(3->ard drive Hi ihe closing minutes. A 55- \aici pass from Plunkett to Riiidy Vataha, his one tune t. animate at Stanford, sei up the winning score. Dolphins 17, Colts 7 heuiy Malone and Don Nottingham, a pair of little-used naming backs, took ciiarge in the second half and helped Miami beat Baltimore. Nottinj;- h.iin replaced injured fullback u- : rry Csonka late in the first h.Jf and scored on a two-yard plunge in the third period to give Miami a 10-7 lead. Malone roared 23 yards around left end late in the fourth period for the score that put the game away for the Dolphins. mils 16, Bears 6 Substitute I^arry Watkins ran one yard for a touchdown and John Ix3ypoldt kicked three field goals to propel Buffalo past Chicago. Buffalo's 0. J. Simpson was held to just 62 yards, one of his lowest days in the pros. Raiders 35, 49ers 24 Oakland turned two San Francisco fumbles into touchdowns, with rookie Harold Hart running 40 yards to score on one recovery, as the Raiders beat the 49ers. Oilers 34, Bengals 21 Dan Pastorini's passes ripped apart Cincinnati's defense and Houston, a loser in 32 of the last 35 games, jumped on every Bengal mistake to pull off an upset. Browns 23, Broiicos 21 Quarterback Brian Sipen who entered the game in the fourth quarter, scored two touchdowns to lead Cleveland to a come- from-behind victory over Denver. Sipe, making only his second appearance of the season replacing Mike Phipps, scored the winning touchdown with 1:56 remaining in the game. Cowboys 21, Giants 7'.... Drew Pearson, the NFL's leading receiver, caught one TD pass and threw another to help the Cowboys beat the Giants. Lions 19, Packers 17 Errol Mann, who had a 27- yard field goal blocked with 1:58 remaining, kicked a 41- yarder with nine seconds left to propel Detroit over Green Bay. Chiefs 24, Chargers 14 Veteran Len Dawson combined with rookie Woody Green on a 67-yard scoring pass to trigger Kansas City past San Diego. Saints 14, Eagles 10 Jess Phillips rammed over from four yards out with 1:10 left in the game to carry New Orleans over Philadelphia. Rams proved correct as Porkers 9 breather LITTLE ROCK (AP) — The Arkansas-Colorado State game ended slightly more than four minutes deep in the first quarter. Arkansas had second down and seven at the CSU 27. Ike Forte carried for four yards and was hit hard. The ball squirted loose. Against Oklahoma State, Baylor or Texas, the ball would have been bounced wrong. But this was Colorado State — Arkansas' 1974 breather. Tight end Doug Voder caught the ball on the first bounce and made seven additional yards. Three plays later, Forte scored the first of his two touchdowns and the Razorbacks were on their way to a 43-9 victory. After losses to Baylor and Texas, the triumph was much- needed. The week prior to the CSU game, members of Arkansas' No. 1 offense worked against players on the No. 1 defense arid the No. 1 defense practiced against the No. 2 offense. Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles said he could not remember following such a practice routine in his previous 16 years at Fa- yt'tteville. "The results of the ball game convinced us that we did last week was right," Broyles said. The obvious drawback is the possibility of an injury. ••We felt we had to take that risk to get back to the fundamentals," he said. "We talked all week about individual battles. You're not going to win every individual battle but we tried to teach them to come back and win the next one. We tried to make that part of their personality." For example, Jon Rhidd- lehoover had not been blocked all fall by a member of the "B" team. Last week, Rhidd- lehoover lined up opposite enter Richard LaFargue. "LaFargue blocked him unmercifully the first time," Broyles said. "Then, Jon came back and wanted to take his head off." Broyles said the problem is one of numbers. He said the Razorbacks probably have 40 fewer scholarship players on campus than they did a few years ago. The scholarship limit was reduced from 50 per year to 30 per year two years ago. Broyles said the Razorbacks would follow the same practice routine this week in preparing for Southwest Conference opponent Texas A&M. The Aggies whipped Baylor 20-0 Saturday night to remain unbeaten in league play. •"They are physically as strong a team as has been in the league in a long time," Brovles said.

Powell said last week that it wasn't realistic to expect his Muleriders to stand toe-to-toe with Henderson's veteran team. Henderson blasted Southern State 33-6 Saturday at Magnolia in a showdown that wasn't. "I was right, but I was a lot more right than I wanted to be," Powell said. "I was disappointed that they whipped us so bad in the trenches. I knew we'd have to play a devil of a game to have a chance, but I never figured they could blow us off the field like that." Southern State emerged as Henderson's top challenger in the Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference by beating State College of Arkansas 27-7 the previous week. Henderson is 3-0 in league play. Ouachita is 2-0-1 after playing a 14-14 tie with SCA. Southern State is 1-1 and SCA is 1-1-1. Harding, idle last week, is 1-2 in the standings. The University of Arkansas at Monticello raised its league mark to 1-2 with a 7-3 victory over Arkansas Tech, now 0-3 in league play. "It begins to look like we've got two divisions in the AIC," Powell said after the game. "Henderson, and then everybody else." Henderson, shooting for its second consecutive AIC title, is No. 3 in the NAIA rankings and has now won 10 straight games going back to last November. Henderson plays Livingston, Ala., State next Saturday with revenge in mind, Livingston spoiled a perfect season with a 14-0 victory last year. Southern State plays Ouachita next Saturday and the loser apparently will be out of the league race. Nathaniel Daniel scored from five yards out to put SCA ahead of Ouachita 14-7 midway through the fourth period, but the Tigers came back quickly. On first down after the kickoff, Bill Vining Jr. sprinted out and threw to tight end Gary Reese who made the catch at the Ouachita 35, eluded a tackier and raced into the end zone to complete a 76-yard scoring play. Russell Daniel's extra point tied it with 7:24 left }n the game and neither mounted a serious threat the rest of the way. SCA's first touchdown came on a blocked punt by tackle Larry Clark. Vining evened the score three plays after OBU recovered a fumble at the Bears' nine. UA-Monticello intercepted four passes in the victory over Tech, which lost its fifth straight game of the season. The game's only touchdown came on a one-yard run by quarterback Rodney Jones late in the first quarter and capped a 55-yard drive. Tech got on the Scoreboard in the third quarter on a 23-yard field goal by Tommy Short. By HERSCHEL NISSENSON AP Sports Writer Although the college football season has been chock full of upsets, the status seems to be quo in most of the major conference races. To be sure, Texas A&M leads the Southwest Conference, Maryland tops the Atlantic Coast Conference, Yale and Harvard share the Ivy League lead and surprising VMI heads the Southern Conference, but elsewhere the old, old standbys are still in the driver's seat. Ohio State, the No. 1 team in The Associated Press ratings, and No. 3 Michigan are atop the Big Ten and heading toward another showdown Nov. 23 while the same holds true in the Southeastern Conference, where fourth-ranked Alabama, 3-0, and No. 5 Auburn, 2-0, tangle Nov. 29. Oklahoma, runner-up nationally, is the only unbeaten team in the Big Eight; sixth-ranked Southern California, despite a sluggish start, is leading the Pacific-8; Arizona State, 14th nationally, is No. 1 in the Western Athletic Conference; Miami of Ohio, rated 19th, tops the Mid-American Conference; San Diego State heads the Pacific Coast Athletic Association and Tulsa leads the Missouri Valley. All won or shared their conference titles last year. In weekend action, Ohio State buried Northwestern 55-7 as Archie Griffin ran for 173 yards on 19 carries and tied the al- Itime college record of rushing for 100 yards or more in 17 consecutive regular-season games set by Oklahoma's former Heisman Trophy-winner, Steve Owens. Steve Davis and Joe Washington led Oklahoma to a 35-0 half-tune bulge over Kansas State and the Sooners demolished the Wildcats 63-0, their second triumph this season by that score. Gil Chapman scored twice and Rob Lytle and Gordon Bell combined for 289 yards on the ground in leading Michigan to its seventh consecutive Little Brown Jug triumph over Minnesota, this one by a 49-0 count. Robert Fraley and Jack O'Rear, subbing for two injured quarterbacks, led Alabama to a 41-3 rout of Texas Christian while Phil Gargis passed for two scores and ran for another as Auburn belted Florida State 38-6. For a change, the upsets were few and far between as the first 15 teams in the rankings all won. Sixth-ranked Southern California whipped Oregon State 3110, No. 7 Notre Dame crushed Miami of Florida 38-7 and No. 8 Texas A&M blanked Baylor 20 P- i But it wasn't easy for all thd survivors. Ninth-rated Nebra ka needed a fumble recovery „. its own one-yard line and an in] terception at the 14 in the final 3Vfe minutes to turn back OklaJ homa State 7-3. Tenth-ranked Penn turned a blocked field goal tempt into a gift touchdown an. went on to defeat West Virginia 21-12. And No. 11 Texas Te blocked a punt in the final peri] od that led to the winnii touchdown in a 20-17 victorj over Southern Methodist. Texas, ranked 13th, trounced! Rice 27-6 and No. 14 Arizona I State whipped New Mexico 41-7.1 Nets, Stars surge to ABA victories By BOB GREENE AP Sports Writer The scores might go over the century mark most of the time, but any pro basketball coach will tell you defense is the key to victory. "We have been playing our best defense in our last few games," said New York Nets' coach Kevin Loughery. "In our last couple of games, we had held teams to under 30 points at the half." The Nets gave up only 37 points in the first half enroute to a 109-91 American Basketball Association victory over the Spirit of St. Louis. In the only other ABA action Sunday, Utah stopped San Diego 95-80. In the National Basketball Association Sunday, Los Angeles defeated Phoenix 123-116 while Portland crushed Seattle 120-94. Loughery said St. Louis mistakes and poor shooting can be attributed partly to inexperience, "but we have a quick defense and like to force those mistakes." St. Louis was able to pene-l trate the Nets' defense for only] 14 points in the second period! while New York, behind Julius! Erving, center Billy Paultz and! forward Larry Kenon, rolled to| a 60-37 advantage at half time. Erving ended up with 20 points and 13 rebounds to take! game scoring honors. Rookie Marvin Barnes scored 241 points, high for St. Louis. Guard Ron Boone fired in 17 points in the second half to lift! the Utah Stars to victory. Boone wound up the night with | 28 points, high for the game, while San Diego's Caldwell 1 Jones had 20 points, including | 14 in the last quarter. The Los Angeles Lakers slapped a tight defense on Phoenix for the first five minutes of the third period, running off a 13-0 spurt to increase their advantage to 21 points. Jim Price and Gail Goodrich tallied 27 points apiece for the Lakers while Charlie Scott got 18 for the Suns. Let's Get One Thing STRAIGHT ! No Matter What You Say Or How You Say It- The ONLY Issue In A Local Option Election Is: ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES Let us remind ourselves that vi!a as the bootlegger is, he is not more vile than the tavern owner who, under license, sells the same alcohol. It is not the bootlegger who kills on the highway, who destroys the home, who makes an alcoholic, but the stuff he sells — alcohol. .And alcohol, whether it is bought in the alley or the tavern, is a killer. Keep that in mind, and our thinking will be a lot less muddy. THIS ISSUE IS CLEARLY DRAWN BETWEEN THE CHRISTIAN GROUPS WHICH ARE OUT FOR A CLEAN, FREE STATE WHERE MEN, WOMEN AND YOUTH WILL NOT HAVE TO BEAR THE TERRIBLE WEIGHT OF FAILURE AND MISERY WHICH THE ALCOHOL TRAFFIC ENTAILS . . . AND THE ALCOHOL INDUSTRY, FIGHTING FOR ONLY ONE THING, PROFITS! The phrase "LEGAL CONTROL" is misleading. "Control" regulates conditions of sale, and nothing else. It does not control drunkeness. It does not control bootlegging, and it does not control disastrous consequences of over indulgence. When we grant a person license for any other activity under the sun, we insist upon his being responsible, but when we license liquor sales, we throw caution to the winds, sow the seeds of bitter tragedy, and contribute to the degradation and death of millions of unfortunate people — Alcohol is as uncontrollable as quick-silver and as deadly.
