T Six HOPE (ARK.) STAR Saturday. November 2, 1914 Star orts A '6 Rollfe Fingers In MVP, the "P" means pitching High school football By The Associated Press The Big Shootout Ls still on...barely. Little Rock Central almost slipped up Friday night on its way to a Nov. 15 showdown with Little Rock Parkview. The second-ranked Tigers trailed fourth-ranked North Little Rock Northeast 15-10 with less than two minutes to play when Houston Nutt hooked up with Robert Farrell on a 41- yard pass play that netted Central a 16-15 victory. It was the Tigers' fifth one-point triumph of the season. "One point is not much, but it's enough to make one coach happy and the other unhappy," said Central Coach Joe Fred Young. "I'm happy." Central and Parkview are both unbeaten in AAAA play. The top-ranked Patriots continued on their merry way. Quarterback Jerry Barnett had a hand in five touchdowns as the Patriots rolled over Luue rtock Catholic 40-6. Third-ranked Texarkana demolished Little Rock Mills 484. Enoch Tims scored three touchdowns as fifth-ranked Little Rock Hall whipped Fort Smith Northside 27-16. Quarter- hack Ron Harris threw three Soutnside 7-5. Ninth-ranked Pine Bluff made a third-quarter touchdown stand up for a 7-0 victory over North Little Rock Ole Main. Bruce Hay ran for one touchdown and passed for two others as lOth-ranked Blytheville bombed Jonesboro 28-10. Nutt completed 12 of 20 Camden 35 Hope 6 touchdown passes as sixth- ranked Lakeside beat Arkadelphia 20-13. Seventh-ranked Paragould blanked Osceola 380. Quarterback David Reynolds scored the game's only touchdown and then turned in a key interception as eighth-ranked Springdale defeated Fort Smith BASKETBALL TIPS By Walt Frazier & Ira Berkow 'Rebounding is position and timing.' (Third in a series) I think that the inside man. which is the defensive man (he's supposed to be closer to the basket because he's supposed to be protecting it), should normally get the rebound. If you block out. But it' you don't block out, then the offensive player has an equal chance of getting the board, sometimes even a better chance, because he can jump higher. He's got a running start. You're just-standing there. Rebounding is position and timing. If I've got good position on a man, blocking him out right, it doesn't usually matter how much taller he is. 1 should get the rebound, because I'm in front of him, unless he pushes me. or climbs over me — in other words, fouls me. Rebounding is like good defense. You got to move your feet to block the man out. Then you meet the ball at the top of your jump with your arms fully extended. 1 usually rebound with two hands if I can, but sometimes you got to ^o up with one. If I'm in a crowd, 1 want to rebound two-handed, draw the ball into my chest, elbows out protecting the ball. But if there's just one guy behind me I rebound one-handed. In this way you can come off dribbling'right away. Rebound, snatch and whiz away. When it's the other way, when a guy gets the rebound on me and tries to dribble in a crowd, I can knock the ball away from him. So I come down and protect the ball first, then see where everybody is before 1 make a move. Check it out and see what's happening. 1 know when you're angary you can't play good. You re but of control. 1 remember Luke Jackson once when he was with Philadelphia and got this rebound and his elbows were flying and he was gruntin' and snortin' to scare people off and he swung his arms around and the ball accidentally flew into the stands. He was very embarrassed. Based on the book, "Rockin Steady A Guide to Basketball and Cool," Copyright (c) 1974 by Walt Frazier and Ira Berkow Published by Prentice-Hall. Inc., Englewood Cliffs, N.J passes for 193 yards and both Central touchdowns. Northeast quarterback Steve Sink scored on a five-yard run to give the Chargers a 15-10 lead with 3G31 left in the jjame. From the Charger 41, Nutt backed up and threw to Robert Farrell who caught the ball at the 20 and lunged into the end Mim with two defenders on his back.

Hoople Peerless Prophet Egad, friends, do we have a big one for you this week! In fact — kaff-kaff — we can hardly wait to share the surprise with you. After computing and recomputing our scouting reports and all available statistics, The Hoople Football Forecast predicts the Fightin' Illini will jolt the powerful Ohio State Buckeyes in their 63rd meeting in Columbus! Yes, indeed, Bob Blackman's fine club will prevail over Archie Griffin and Company, 31-28 — har-rumph! Also in the Big Ten, Michigan will romp over Indiana, 34-9, and Wisconsin will win a cliff-hanger, 34-28, over a revived Michigan State team. In Philadelphia, Tom Clements, Notre Dame's running-passing whiz, will continue his Heisman Award drive as the Irish prevail over host Navy, 40-13, in this storied rivalry. Oklahoma and Nebraska looking forward to their head-on collision three weeks hence will both be victorious. We foresee a relatively easy 28-14 win for the Sooners over Iowa State, and a very close 17-10 triumph for the Nebraska Cornnuskers over Colorado. In a long-time Pacific Eight matchup, < *the Trojans of Southern California will thump invading California, 35-7. Meanwhile, at Seattle, the Washington Huskies will give UCLA a tussle before succumbing 30-17! Elsewhere around the country Alabama will defeat Mississippi State, 30-6, Yale will take Dartmouth, 27-6, Texas A&M will finish in front of Arkansas, 28-12, and Penn State will edge Maryland, 25-21 — um-kumph.

Only because in the final, crucial fifth game, Mike Marshall of the Los Angeles Dodgers served up a home run, and Rollie Fingers didn't, the Oakland Athletics became champions of the world for the third straight year. Fingers is a tall, mustachioed dude who could have played the romantic heavy in the movies of the 1930s with his jet black hair, handlebar upper lip adornment and aquiline good looks, and he only became a short inning relief specialist some- • what by accident in the summer of 1971 in Yankee Stadium. As Rollie remembers it, "We were having a see-saw slugfest and Bob Locker (the A's relief specialist at the time) was hurt. I put out the fire and we won and it was my first save of the season. I ended up the season with 17 saves." Increasingly since then, as the A's proceeded to American League championships in 1972-73-74 and ensuing World Series triumphs, he has become the major crutch of the Athletics. This pattern shows up in his pitching over the last three seasons as he saved 61 games, won 27 and holds the all-time World Series record for relief appearances (16) and saves (6). Now in his garage in Danville, a suburb beyond the smog line of Oakland where many of the A's turn out to pasture in the off-season, Fingers will put a third car — his prize as the most valuable player in the series — to go with the two tars he already has. That'll mean clearing out some of the junk which clutters one-third of his three-car garage — and figuring out how two people can manage with three cars. As a relief specialist whose salary is likely to skyrocket close to the six-figure bracket along with such A's as Reggie Jackson, Sal Bando and Catfish Hunter, Fingers has a 2 quarterbacks try out new turf Sunday By BRUCE LOWITT AP Sports Writer A couple of old quarterbacks get a chance to show what they've got in starting roles with new teams Sunday—and one or two others may have to sit out the action because they haven't quite got it. John Hadl, acquired by Green Bay from Los Angeles Oct. 22, could get the starting nod over Jack Concannon when the Packers host the Washington Redskins. And Craig Morton, who spent several years riding the Dallas bench behind Roger Staubach before the Cowboys dealt him to New York at about the same Slippery Rock getting smiles SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. (AP) — Slippery Rock has a 6-0-1 record this year, but Coach Bob DiSpirito says everyone still smiles at his school's football team. DiSpirito, however, is not smiling about never having made the Associated Press Small College football poll. In fact, he's steaming. "We are very upset," he says. "We have won two straight state championships and we're driving for a third, and we still can't get any recognition." But opponents give the Rockets lots of recognition. Slippery Rock has notjost in its last 29 games against Perm.. sylvania competition, has a 20- game home winning streak and an 11-game non-losing skein going into Saturday's game at Lock Haven State. The Rockets won last year, io-y. "We feel we can play with anybody," says publicist John Carpenter. The venerable Dunkel rankings have Slippery Rock rated ahead of mnrp than a dozen major scnools, incluumg new Mexico State. It says the Rockets are 1.5 points better the 5-3 Lobos. "Look, we might not beat Penn State if we played them, but we sure wouldn't lose 55-0 like Wake Forest did, either," says Carpenter. me UOCKCUS uave uiea i« 6 ~. some bigger-name oppponents. "We wrote letters to about 250 schools, including everyone in the Yansee comerence, says DiSniHto. "Almost no one answered." School officials blame tha» silly-sounding name, which brings a smile to the faces of millions of college football fans. But, they feel, athletic directors at places like Massachusetts and Connecticut have a dread of finding themselves on the wrong end of a Slippery Rock score, as laugnlingly announced around the nation. uur of tensive une weigm 241," says DiSpirito. "No one is going to laugh about them." The line helps running back Ed O'Reilly, who has gained over 100 yards his last 11 games.

The science of relief pitching is really no science at all. Fingers figures he won't have to work more than three innings any time he goes out to the mound so he just waxes the end of his mustache a little firmer, gets a tight grip on the ball and with total concentration, fires it just as hard as he can. Normally, his repertoire includes that most valuable asset of the modern pitcher, a slider (or fast mini-curve), but if Rollie gets in a jam or his arm is feeling the twinges of fatigue, he just discards everything else and throws accurate Fast balls. Best example of this was in the Dodgers' series finale when he had to protect a one- run lead and he had already pitched the previous two days. ''Normally," admits Rollie, "it would have been a good day off for me. During the season when my arm gets tired, they're able to sit me down for a day. But this was it man." He went out to the mound feeling a deep ache in his right arm just above and behind the elbow. "I knew I couldn't throw breaking pitches," he admits, "because I couldn't get enough on them and control them. I tried one to Joe Ferguson and he hit it five miles foul into the upper second deck. So it was just fast balls, the only pitch I could control." The tiredness also showed up in his delivery. At one time, Coach Wes Stock had to come out to the mound and caution him. "I was dropping down," says Rollie. "I wasn^ following through. I was whiplashing the ball to the plate." Normally deadpan at work, Rollie relaxed just one moment when Von Joshua, the final Los Angeles hitter, bounced one right back to him. Fingers gloved it, gave a couple of gleeful hops and finally decided to turn the ball loose to Gene Tenace at first for the last out. Then it was time for cham- E agne again, a California rand. "Every bottle," says Rollie, "tastes a little better every year." They must age right — like a 28-year-old relief pitcher. time as Hadl switched teams, will be calling the signals for the Giants when they begin play against the Chiefs in Kansas City. Sonny Jurgensen, who has been quarterbacking Washington for the past few weeks, may have to give way to Billy Kilmer if his ailing legs don't hold out. Mike Phipps wasn't very effective last week calling Cleve' land's signals. So Brian Sipe took over, scored two touchdowns and rallied the Browns to a 23-21 squeaker over Denver. 'And on Sunday, it'll be Sipe on the field and Phipps on the bench when Cleveland visits San Diego. In Sunday's other games, the St. Louis Cardinals try to remain the lone unbeaten National Football Leaeue team when they invade Dallas, Buffalo is at New England in an American Conference East showdown, Oakland hopes to widen its AFC West edge with a victory over Denver, Pittsburgh hosts Philadelphia, Minnesota is at Chicago, Detroit hosts New Orleans, Miami takes on Atlanta, Cincinnati is at Baltimore and Houston is at the New York Jets, . On Monday night, Los Angeles goes against the 49ers in San Francisco. Hadl saw no action last Sunday in the Packers' 19-17 loss to Detroit and Green Bay Coach Dan Devine says he won't make up his mind until game time whether he'll go with Had! or Concannon, who completed 17 of 30 passes for 237 yards in the losing effort. 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Solunar Tables ,* ^ The schedule of Solunar Periods, as printed below, has been taken from Richard Alden Knight's SOLUNAR TABLES.
