— THE PARIS NEWS, FRIDAY, AUG. 25, 1972 Houston Wins, But Loses Lynn Dickey SPEED MERCHANTS - Larry Washington, left, and Larry Minor, right, halfback and wingback respectively for Paris High Wildcats, are two juniors who are showing speed to burn in early practice sessions for the Cats. Though young and with an entire backfield, save one, made up of junior players, the Cats anticipate having more speed this year, and Washington and Minor are two of the reasons why.

The Oilers were impressive in spots as they gave rookie Coach BU Peterson his second triumph in the pros, but Houston lost quarterback Lynn Dickey for possibly eight weeks with a dislocated left hip. "Getting Dickey hurt took away from the victory," Peterson said after the Oilers scored two touchdowns in 35 seconds and pulled away in the second quarter. "It looks like I won't have such a hard time naming a No. 1 quarterback now." Peterson referred to the keen duel that had been going on between Dickey and Dan Pastorini for the starting quarterback job. Dickey had proved a worthy opponent, completing 27 of 38 passes for 359 yards and three touchdowns. He had just scrambled 10 yards for a first down on the play that caused the injury. "We're beginning ,to get together," Peterson said. "We still made a lot of mistakes, but coaching will take care of that. The turning point was when we went ahead 13-10. The big play o the drive to that touchdown was the interference call." That was a 44-yard past interference call against the Cardinals' Roger Werhli. It set Houston up for Pastorini's 28- yeard touchdown aerial to wide receiver Kenny Burrough, who led all receivers with six catches for 102 yards. Only seconds later Oilers linebacker Floyd Rice picked off a pass by Jim Hart and returned it 29 yards to the Cardinal four. On the first play from scrimmage, Charlie Joiner scooted in on the end around play to put Houston ahead 20-10 at intermission. Pastorini connected for two more touchdown passes in the second half—seven yards to Dennis Hughes and 12 yards to Rhett Dawson for an outstanding average of 13 of 18 completions for 208 yards. St. Louis led 10-6 at one point in the second quarter on Hart's one-yard run and a 17-yard field goal by Jim Bakken. Houston scored first on Ward Walsh's three-yard run. Gary Cuozzo, obtained, from Minnesota this season, engineered two fourth quarter touchdowns to make it respectable on a seven-yard pass to Don Heater and a 35-yard bomb to Sonny Person. Both teams now have 2-2 preseason records. Torre and Bench Migrate 15-28th N.W. 784-3220 HOMER SMITH (left), owner of Westerm Oaks Barber Shop announces that D ALIAS DICKS ON is now working fuU time at the shop and wishes to Invite everyone out to visit him soon at tils new location. The shop is located In the Western Oaks Shopping Center and offers plenty of FREE PARKING! By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Look out, Joe Torre. Your switch from catcher to third baseman may be catching on. Torre, who blossomed into a full-fledged superstar when he gave up his chest protector and shin guards, may have given Johnny Bench, already a superstar, some ideas. Cincinnati's slugging receiver showed up at third base for the Reds Thursday and tagged his 29th homer of the year in a 6-0 victory over Montreal. That was the only game played in the National League Thursday. In the American League, Texas split a doubleheader with Milwaukee, winning the first game' 4-1 but dropping the nightcap 4-3. "It's tough to catch everyday," said Bench. "The bat gets heavy after awhile. I find it easier if I can play in t h e field. It's almost like a rest for me." The rookie has enabled Manager Sparky Anderson to let Bench work rapid development of catcher Bill Plummer elsewhere in the lineup. Mostly, the Cincinnati slugger has been in right field but he switched to third base Thursday and handled two chances including a bunt, flawlessly. The same couldn't be said of the Expos, who committed three errors to make it easy for the Reds and Jack Billingham, who tossed a six-hitter. It was the second straight shutout for the veteran right-hander and evened his season's record at 10-10: The Rangers scored three unearned runs in the first inning of the opener the last two on a misjudged fly ball which fell for a triple by Tom Grieve. Frank Howard homered and Elliot Maddox contributed three singles to the Texas attack. Mike Paul and Pete Broberg combined for the six-hitter. In the nightcap, Dave May clubbed a two-run homer, tying the score for the Brewers and then beat out an infield single in the eighth inning to deliver the winner. Dalton Jones' double drove in all three Texas runs. Taiwan LL Puts Hawaiians Out WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Taiwan's team in the Little League World Series prepares for a baseball game the way Republicans plan their National convention: everything is worked out in advance. There's no guarantee the other team will follow .the script, but there was no deviation Thursday when Taiwan propelled itself into Saturday's final against Hammond, Ind. Before their 94 victory over Pearl City, Hawaii, manager Lin Hsin-chang told his players: "Try to exhaust the other pitcher. Wear him out. Just try to hit the ball." The Asian youngsters did just that, pecking away for single runs in the first, fourth and fifth innings, and scoring twice in the second, third and sixth. However, of the team's 10 hits, only two were for extra bases — a home run by Chiang Fuch- eng and a double by Lin Chao- chin. Pitcher Lin hurled a masterful game, allowing only one hit — a home run by Kirk Sato — and striking out 15. He fanned the side in three of the six innings. Hammond reached the finals with its 10-7 triumph Thursday over San Juan, Puerto Rico.
