ALL OUT — Bruce Bateman, Blytheville High School senior, receivec t trophy at the BUS all-sports banquet last week for his 100 percent effort in football last year. A three sport standout, Bruce has accepted an invitation to play his college football at Arkansas State College. (Courier News Photo) ** Defenders OK** Frank-ly He's Disappointed FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Coach Frank Broyles had praise for the Arkansas defense .. after a game-type football scrimmage Friday in which the No. 1 offense outscored the second unit 13-10. But overall, he said, the game scrimmage—second one of the spring session—was a bit disappointing. The No. 1 offense faced the No. 1 defense and the No. 2 offense played against the No. 2 defense. Broyles said the defenders turned in their best job of the spring. * * * In the first half, only freshman Steve ?ffltz could provide any points, scoring a field goal for each side with kicks of 46 and 36 yards. He kicked another one, this one good for 25 yards, for the No. 1 offense in the last quarter. Broyles praised Miltz' lack- Ing, the running of David Dickey and Bruce Maxwell and the 'defensive play of linebacker .David Cooper. Maxwell scored for the No. 1 unit on a 10-yard drive and picked up about 45 yards. Dickey ran for 86 yards in 14 carries. * * . * The No. 2 offense .scored its touchdown on a 35-yard pass from John Eichler to split end Tommy Jacobs. Broyles said tbe receivers dropped more passes than any day in the spring practice. The usual Red-White format "of the scrimmage was discarded as both offensive units wore ..white jerseys. T Formation Has Problems FAYETTEILVLE, Ark. (AP) — The I formation offense, '.which Arkansas used as the nation's highest scoring team last year, has its problems, a Razorback coach said Friday. .. Bill Pace, offensive backfield coach, discussed the offense Arkansas adopted two years ago —a span which produced one loss in 22 games—at a coaching, clinic here. One of the first problems the Arkansas staff encountered, he said, was "that it was conducive to too much offense. The plays we can use off this are .almost limitless." By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer Frank Robinson has replaced George Strickland as the No. 1 driver in the American League. Strickland drove Manager Bidi Tebbetts to and from the ballpark during Cleveland's 1 game unb-aten streak, but the Chicago White Sox ended the streak by defeating the Indians 4-1 Friday night. Robinson, meanwhile, steered Baltimore to its eighth straight victory, driving in the runs with a triple and a home run in the Orioles' 8-1 victory over Detroit. * * * Using Strickland, an Indian coach, as a chauffeur was part of the routine Tebbetts refused to change as long as the Indians were winning. He also passed up barber shops and ate breakfast at the same table in the sme hotel with the same waitress serving him. Strickland earned the transportation job after driving Tebbetts back to his hotel following the Indians' opening-game victory. And every time they drove to the hotel :hey made an illegal turn. * * » There's nothing illegal about ZERO FOR WILLIE BE SAFE LET US PROTECT YOUR PRECIOUS PURS AND WOOLENS IN OUR BONDED STORAGE VAULTS. BESTWAY Laundry Cleaners PICK-UP * DELIVER! m PO 2-2408 2012 MEMBt* Sadecki Stops Giants Birdie 'Clipped' Robinson, even though the other AL teams would like to think so. His two hits against the Tigers raised his average to .474, and he maintained his streak of having scored in every game by increasing that total to 16. He also has five homers and 10 runs batted in. With the help of Robinson's bat, the Orioles pulled even with the Indians at 10 victories in 11 games, the best records in the majors. The only other scheduled AL game—Minnesota at Washington—was rained out. * * * Gary Peters and Bob Locker scattered eight hits in Chicago's victory over Cleveland. Peters hit a home run before leaving for a pinch hitter in the seventh inning. Th pinch hitter, Danny Cater, drove in a run with a sacrifice fly. Robinson's two-run triple drove Detroit starter Bill Mon- bouquette from the mound and brought Terry Fox on. Boog Powell then climaxed the seven- run outburst with a two-run homer. Wally Bunker gave lip 10 hits, but the Tigers scored only on Don Wert's homer in the fifth. W. Pittsburgh .. 10 Los Angeles . 11 Atlanta 10 San Francisco 10 .214 6% Philadelphia iouston .

The only trouble last year was his slow start didn't end until the season did. But the 25-year-old St. Louis left-hander has junked his April jinx and some of the memories of last season's year-long ineffectiveness by putting toghether two strong performances, the latest a five-hit, 5-1 victory over San Francisco Friday night. A 20-game winner when the Cardinals won the National League pennant two years ago, Sadecki made one of the biggest nosedives in baseball history in 1965 when he was able to post only six victories while losing 15 games. But it's been different this season. After being brought along slowly in two brief relief appearances, Sadecki allowed only one earned run against Pittsburgh in his first start, then came back and matched that against the Giants while recording his first complete game. * * * He also throttled Willie Mays, who has been looking for a record-breaking 512th homer since Sunday. Mays returned to the iants line-up after sitting out one game with the flu but went hitless in three trips. Mays also lost his NL homer lead to Hank Aaron, whose seventh homer gave Atlanta a 4-3 victory over Houston. In other games, the Los Angeles Dodgers edged Cincinnati 3-2, the New York Mets downed Pittsburgh 5-2 in 11 innings and Phil adelphia whipped the Chicago Cubs 5-1. The Cardinals gave Sadecki more than enough working room by jolting Bob Shaw and Ron Herbel for six consecutive singles and four runs in the third inning. The damage was done by Lou Brock, Alex Johnson, Curt Flood, Tim McCarver, Charley Smith and George Kernek. ohnson also hit a ninth inning homer. * * * The Astros pulled into a tie with the Braves in the ninth inning when pinch hitter Ron Brand singled following walks to John Bateman and Joe Morgan. Aaron turned it around again with one swing in the bottom of the ninth, hitting a two- out shot over the lefHield fence. Dodger sarter Claude Osteen had the Reds shut out on two hits and led 2-0 on Lou Johnson's homer when Cincinnati scored twice in the ninth on a walk and singles by Vada Pinson and Tony Perez. The Dodgers then won it in their half on a double by Nate Oliver, walks to Jim Giiliam and Wes Parker and Ron Fairly's two- out single. * * * The Mets broke a 1-1 tie with four runs in the llth as Chuck Hiller and Roy McMillan each collected key singles. Killer's broke a 1-1 tie and McMillan's drove in two runs. The other run crossed on a wild pitch by Al McBean. The Pirates, shut out for six innings and Rot Gardner, had tied the score on a single by Jim Pagliaroni and Bob Bailey's double. Jim Bunning allowed nine hits but went the distance for the Phillies, running , his scoreless inning streak to 20 before Adolfo Phillips supplied the Cubs' run with a homer in the seventh.

There he was, standing in the post office on his day off, a mailman's holiday, mind you, licking hundreds of stamps and affixing them to circulars. The poor guy was Bill Hrabovsky, secretary-treasurer of Mississippi County Bowling Association, and he was dispatching news of the upcoming eighth annual banquet, and the least members can do in return is make reservations for the event and make it the best—I hate to say it—the best banquet ever. Date is Friday (roast beef AND fried shrimp), May 7, at the BAFB NCO Club. * * * Atlanta Cautious REMEMBER HOW THE PEOPLE OF MILWAUKEE flipped their flappers when the Braves moved in? They showered the Braves with everything from new suits to fresh (not the rotten kind you throw) eggs, bratwurst and sauerkraut. Fans and merchants in Atlanta approach the situation more cautiously although one jeweler offers a free watch for every homer hit. Hank Aaron was offered a house and a job in Atlanta if he'd move his family south but he turned it down, figuring his kids could get a better education in Milwaukee. The most popular Brave in Atlanta? I doubt it's Aaron, even though he is the home run leader in the National League.

Fewer and Rod gen Tie Littler and Mowry Fade SAN ANTONIO (AP)-A field trimmed to 71 tees off today in the third round of the Texas Open—with an elder statesman of the tour and a current hot player in the lead with seven- under-par two-round totals of 133. Jim Ferrier, one o" the oldest players on the tour at 50, and 28- year-old Phil Rodgers moved into a tie for the lead Friday after the previous leaders, Gene Littler and Larry Mowry, Faded. Ferrier shot a six-unde-par 64, conquering the 6,715-yard Oak Hills Country Club course with deadly chip shots and fantastic putting. Rodgers came in with a 65, what he jokingly called a "typical round." The La Jolla, Calif., pro made seven Birdies to continue his torrid tour pace. The original field of 144 was cut to the low 70 scores and ties. The cut came at a two-round total of,143. Ferrier collected an eagle and five birdies on his round and faltered only once all day— on four-wood second shot that hit a trap and led to his lone bogey. The eagle came when the Australian native played a four- wood over the trees and onto the front edg of the tenth hole. He sank the 80-foot putt, while "just trying to get close," he said. Rodgers was in and out of trouble all day, hitting trees and traps. He blasted out of one trap to within three feet for one birdie anJ came back after hitting trees on the first hole to make a birdie with a 30-foot putt. He also sank putts of 20 and 25 feet.
