"We've got two or three run ners that are ailing, and that can kill your chances in the relay events." BULLDOG SPRING In addition to an impressive track program, Faycttcvilic High School is also running off competitive schedule in both tennis and golf. The tennis team, coached by Ray Brown and sparked by David Beauchamp and Randy Jackson, has scored recent victories over St. Anne's and Ben- tonvillc. Coach Joe Kretschmar is handling the golf team which has a 4-t record at this writing. Dick Anderson. Rick Kro- ton. Andy Lewis and Monty Fulton are the top point leaders on the links teams. Both the tennis and golf units will compete in the state tournaments later this month.

Gary and former Southwest Conference half-mile champ Bige Wray are doing their practice teaching at the high school. Bige hasn't played too much ping pong, but he has been known to battle Ray Brown on the banks below the Lake Seauoah dam.

Former Fayetteville High nth Cubs Keep Cardinal Hitting At North Pole letes Bob Gardner. David Parish and Bubba McCord have been assisting Coach H o l t along with the athletic staff. The entire program, which gives a lot of kids a chance to participate and represent their schools, will be climaxed by the Exchange Club Relays which will he held Inter'this month. PORKER ENTRIES The UofA spring sports program for 1909 is the largest and most active in the school's history. The four sports involved, track, baseball, golf and tennis, are competing in a total of 80 individual events during the 'C9 season, and includes 85 athletes in competition. By sports there arc 40 men competing in track with an Il-cvent: b a s e b a l l h a s a t t r a c t e d 25 athletes and covers a 30-game schedule, the longest in UofA history; there arc 11 men taking part in the golf program with 17 scheduled events.: and tnnnis involves six men over a 22 match schedule. Considering the fact that each is a non-revenue sport, the total program is supported by a successful football program. Each of the four sports is also staffed by a ton man in his field, former Razorback distance star Tom Hardin in track: Wayne Robbins. onetime pitching aco with Missis- siipi State, in baseball; for mcr NAIA All-Amcrican Danny Mason in golf: and state singles' champion Dave Koss- ovcr in tonnis.

Springdale basketball coach Phillip Sanders has also resigned to become principal of Southwest J u n i o r High i n Springdale. Phillip also tloos well as a fisherman, landing a 10-pound bass recently. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS There was a pretty good rea- sun why Bill Stoneman wasn't nervous. The situation was completely unfamiliar "I never even came close to a no-hitter before." said the Montreal Expos' chunky little hurler after baffling Philadelphia with a 7-0 masterpiece Thursday night. The main reason for this is simple: Stoneman was consigned to an apparent life of oblivion in the bullpen until rescued by the Expos in the expansion draft. Thursday's brilliant effort was his first complete game in the majors, and only the second in his entire pro career. The first was with a minor league team two years ago. That, explained the 23-ycar- old rightrhandcr, was probably why he didn't "think there was any pressure. The n e r v e s weren't, there. T wasn't as nerv ous as I should have been. I had good stuff and T was getting the ball where I wanted it." Before the Expos drafted him from the Chicago Cubs. Stoneman generally was a reliever because. "I'm so short (5 Toot- 0) that my managers and coaches always said. 'You're n ·clicvcr.' I was successful at it so I staved there." But Gene Mauch. Montreal manager, grossed with i d he was im Stone-man's ap- a team lie managed for nine I edged San Diego 5-4. I.os An years until he was fired last summer, and decided to give him a shot at being a starter. He lost his first two tries this season, against night. but the was untouchable Phils Thursday Stoneman. who said he threw a fastball and curves with a few change-ups, walked five and struck out eight for the nine- game old Kxpos. marking the first time an expansion team hurler has pitched a no-hitter in the team's debut year. The closest Philadelphia came to a hit came in the first when Dcron Johnson smashed a liner down third that was foul only by inches, when center fielder Don Bosch made a shoestring catch on Don Money in the second, and when Rusty Staub made a long running catch of a line drive to risht field by Tony Taylor in the third. Stonernan didn't have to face tho Phils' top slugger. Richie Allen, who sat out the tame with a bruised rieht shoulder. Meanwhile. Staub backed Stoneman with a homer, three doubles and three RBIs. In other National League samps, the sizzling Chicago Cubs boosted their record to 9-1 by blanking St. Louis for the second straight night ?,-0. Pitts burgh slopncd the New York Mcts 4 0. Atlanta ripned Tlnus- ·arnnces against Philadelphia, ton 9-3. and San Francisco San Kranciscu used a two-run double by Jim Davenport to break a tie in tin- sixth inning and went on to hand expansionist San Dit-go ils sixth straight gcles and Cincinnati were idle. St. Louis Manager Red SchoeneJienst. in an effort to revitalize bis defending NL champs' miserable hitting, shook up his lineup by benching three of last year's stars--I.ou Brock. Julian Javier and Tim McCarvcr. But, it didn't heln a bit. The Cubs' Bill Hands and Phil Regan teamed to stop the Cards o n four hits, handing them t h e i r ! fifth home loss in f i v e games. | Hands. 2-0, didn't permit a| runner past second and yielded three hits during his eight-inning stint.
