K2200.3 EASON GLASS 44 77 Buddy Pi-arro (in 12X) and Pete Leufkins Rattle It Out At Speedway Modifieds Run Tonight By JACK HARPER TALLAHASSEE (AFN) Coach Bill Peterson is hoping his shakeup among players at Florida State will give his Seminoles the incentive to regain their early season momentum and stage a eomback against Mississippi State this Saturday. "The older players are steamed up trying to get their positions back and the younger ones are working hard to prove themselves," Peterson told a news conference Thursday. "They're enjoying the competition and there seems to be a new enthusiastic spirit out there." Peterson aimed most of his changes at the Seminole defense which has allowed 68 points in the last two games, although earlier in the season it was rated number two in the nation. Placed on the defensive first unit were tackles Dukes Johnston and Robert McErchern, linebackers Bobby Burt and Steve Gildea, along with backs Mike Page and Clint Burton. Demoted were tackles Harvey Zion and Frank Vohun, linebacker Chuck Elliott and Joe Benson plus backs John Pell and Chuck Eason. The only change to the starting offensive team was a move elevating Jim Tyson to split end over Chip Glass. Tyson nabbed two passes in the Virginia Tech game and Glass dropped a couple before he was taken out. Peterson hinted Thursday that he may also give some members of the offensive team some competition from the second unit. "We want to let Tommy Warren play some at quarterback," he said, "and maybe we'll liven that first offensive team with some changes, too." In the second offensive unit he has moved fullback John Pitt-man to number two running back behind Bill Gunfer. The Seminoles carry a 4-2 record to Scott Field at Starks-ville, Miss., while the Bulldogs are 0-6-1. Last week FSU suffered its worst defeat, 40-22, against Virginia Tech. Mississippi State had its finest performance of the season last week when the Bulldogs made Alabama fight for Its life before bowing 20-13. The tie came earlier this season when South West Conference Co-leader Texas Tech was surprised, 28-28. Dodds spent last weekend at the stale modified championships in Tampa and possibly could line up several other lop modified drivers for this Friday's feature event. Drivers expected lo run include Will Cagle of Tampa, who was second lo Rullouuh in Ihe Tampa 200; Billy Gill of Sarasota, who was third at Tampa; Dave Scarborough, Largo: Wimpy Veile, Miami; and Wayne Keutiman.

"Right now Jackie Eckdahl is my only starter in the offensive backfield," Coach Ray Graves reported after the Florida Field workout. "I don't know who will be the other starters." Injured players include second team quarterback and punter Larry Rentz, bruised foot; fullback Larry Smith, sprained arch; and Fullback Jerry Vine-sett, sprained toe. With Rentz slowed, Paul Ma-liska and Guy McTheny will handle the punting and Harold Peacock has been moved up to quarterback behind Eckdahl. Working out at tailback has been Tom Christian, a probable starter and Garry Walker. Peacock has also been practicing at this position as well as at fullback. Probable starter at fullback if Smith can't go is Brian Hipp. Vinesett might see some action and Bill McBride has been brought up from the B team for added insurance. VINESETT ECKDAHL Tight end Jim Yarbrough, another key to Florida's offense, has not worked out this week due to a strep throat. George Dean has been filling in for him on the first team, but Graves said Yarbrough will start Saturday if he gets doctor's clearance. Graves said Thursday's workout was dedicated to a complete review of the Gator's game plan and continued work on the kicking game. He designated Ma-liska, a second learn flanker, who has had a good week's practice, to return klckoffs with Hipp. Asked to predict what it would take to beat Georgia, Graves said he is looking for a "defensive game with a lot of offense" and 17 points should win it.
