Bill Kennan TIMES Sports Editor * * * -¥- * Porkers Try Baylor Tonight the Arkansas Razorbacks make tlieir final two-game road trip beginning tonight when they tangle w i t h the Baylor Bears in "The Pit" in Waco. As you probably recall the Hogs lost the first contest 76-70 in Barnhill Fieldhouse. After the success of Arkansas's three guard offense against Texas it's going to be interesting to see if head coach Lanny Van Eman tries the same ploy to ambush B a y l o r . T h e Razorbacks certainly could use a victory that would improve their 5-4 ' conference mark and their 12. 9 season record. The Hogs still have a chance to finish high in the standings but a. loss .-to Baylor would end all hope. A quick glance at the standings shows Texas Tech on top at 8-1 with SMU still in the race at 7-2. Then comes . Arkansas, Baylor a n d Texas AM all tied at 5-4. Hard to believe though it is, Texas is way down the list at 3-6. Rice and TCU bring up the rear. . Needless to say, Martin Terry is the k e y to the Arkansas offense especially after his torrid 31 point performance against Texas. If the Razorback sharpshooter continues this .pace several records are sure to fall his way' even though he's been a member o f ' the Arkansas varsity for only two years a f t e r transferring from Hutchinson Junior College in '·"'' Kansas. ; Dean Tolson has overcome ' the effects of meningitis to 1 become what all the coachers are calling a "premier * ' . player."

LOS ANGELES' (AP) - John Wooden didn't admit it but he was probably nervous about one ot two things, and maybe he's scared about both: the probability ot playing Long Beach State and the worry that Bill Walton's knees won't hold out. Friday night he took precautions against both by playing sub-center Swen Nater at forward at the same time that Walton was in the game. The outcome, a 93-62 UCLA rout of Washington, was almost cidental to the move by the coach. It was the first time the two 6-foot-ll players had been in the linup at the same time this year. "I've been playing Nater and Walton together in practice/' said Wooden. "There may be a situation against a big, tough opponent when (Keith) Wilkes is in trouble and I could bring in Nater." UCLA, winning its 65th n a row and 20th this year, is an overwhelming favorite to vin the Pacific-8 title and move ntp the Western Regional playoffs at Pauley Pavilion. There they'd most likely move through their first-round game nto a possible showdown with :hird-rated Long Beach State. One of the things that probably .. bothers Wooden is Long Beach's size. The 49ers are big and strong, with 6-11 Nate Stephens at center, burly 240- pound Leonard Gray, at 6-8, playing one forward post and 66 All-American Ed Ratleff, at another forward. Walton's knees may be the biggest concern. "Walton practiced only one day with us this week because of his knes," said Wooden. "His knees don't affect his playing- but he plays in pain. He has 'remarkable maneuvera 1 bility." Walton hasn't missed a UCLA game, leading the Bruins to 50 straight victories since he became a sophomore. Before each game the talented center warms up the knees with heat ng pads and ices them down after. Jacksonville, the nation's No 13 team, was the only othei ranked club in action Friday night.

Prairie Grove Whips West Fork WEST FORK -- The Prairie Grove Tigers defeated West Fork 73-55 last night in the regular season finale for .boll' teams.

Prairie Grove hit 44 per cent of its shots from the tield last night while West Fork hit only 28 per cent. West Fork attempted 21 more shots, 82 to 61, but was not able to penetrate the inside and therefore could not match Prairie Grove in the number of high-percentage shots. One good reason was the absence of 6-4 Terry Mahry, who was forced out of the West Fork lineup with the flu. With Mabry not playing. Prairie Grove moved guard Phil Smith into .the post in the third quarter, creating a mismatch underneath which opened the ·ay to a 23-12 advantage in the quarter for Prairie Grove. Smith had also worked effectively inside in a game last week. Prairie Grove led after one quarter, 18-15, and at the half, 35-27, thanks to a Hurry of six straight points just before intermission.
