Some Exhibitions Already Off Talks Resume Today NEW YORK (AP) -- Negotiations resumed today between baseball's owners and the Major League Players Association but the spring training exhibition game schedule has already been disrupted. The Pittsburgh Pirates announced Wednesday that their three-game exhibition trip to Mexico City has been canceled and at least four other games-two apiece between the New York Mets and Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins and Detroit Tigers--will also be dropped. An agreement between the players and owners calls for no exhibition games to be played until 10 days after teams report to training camp. If an agreement were reached today, the earliest players could report would be Friday. The 10-day period would then take teams to March 5 as the earliest date For Last Indoor Track Test Hogs Enter Triangular Colonel Phelps notes that the Air Force also sponsors .clinics for baseball and basketball, recalling that former New York Yankee pitcher Whitey' Ford and North Carolina basketball coach Dean Smith have each participated. Former Washington Redskins coach Bill McPeak and his quarterback Sonny Jurgensen have also taken part in the football clinic. Phelps once had a similar job in Japan, snd remembers, "Adolph Rupp didn't want to come back." Texas coach Darrell Royal also made the Japan tour. Contacted yesterday, coach Broyles said he is looking forward to the trip, and expects to receive an itinerary in the next two 07 p t h r e e weeks. Broyles apd his staff are currently working on "isolated prospects" in advance of the national signing date in April, and are looking at film in preparation for the start of spring practice on March 20.

A two-game exhibition series jy the New York Yankees in Nicaragua scheduled for March -4 had been canceled earlier jecause of the December earthquake in the Central American country. Calvin Griffith, president of he Minnesota Twins, predicted hat an agreement would bs reached between the owners and players by March 1. "I've got a feeling we will b« back in business by then," said Griffith. "We have only eight days until then...something has :o give." Meanwhile, talks continued between Marvin Miller,. executive director of the Players Association, and John Gaherin, chief negotiator for the owners. A shroud of secrecy hung over the discussions with both parties maintaining terse silence over any progress. Several players came 19 terms with their clubs Wednesday. Willie Davis signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers for $100,000, becoming the fifth player in club history to hit that plateau. The New York Mets enrolled left-hander Jerry Koosman and outfielder Rich Chiles. Outfielder Jose Cardenal agreed to t e r m s with th« Chicago Cubs. · It's Do Or Die For Bulldogs Fayetteville Meets Rogers By GRANT HALL TIMES Sporis Writer Aftftr Tuesday night's games, the AAA-West post-season picture has simplified somewhat. Springdale, by defeating Kay- etteville, has become the sixth team to qualify for the slate tournament. T h e three teams which are not yet exempt from worry are Texarkana, 5-10, Rogers, 4-11, and Fayetteville, 3-11. With Hot Springs' road victory over Conway, there is still a slight possibility of a tie for first place. Conway, 13-2. would have to lose to Fayetleville here Fiiday night, while Hot Springs, 12-3, would have to defeat Benton. The only position in the standings which is already set is third place, which Russellville occupies with a 10-5 record. Fort Smith Southside is currently in fourth place with a 7-7 record, Springdale is fifth with a 6-8 mark, and Benton is sixth at 6-9. Texarkana could sew up a berth in Ihe state tournament by defeating Fort Smith Southside tonight. Even if the Razorbacks lose, they are assured of at least a coin flip for eighth place. And if Fayelteville heats Rogers lonight but then loses to Conway tomorrow night. Texarkana could lose and still make the tournament as the seventh-place team. In that event, Fayettevjlle and Rogers would tie for eighth with four wins each. If Rogers beats FayCUCville. the Bulldogs will he eliminated .whether they beat Conway or not. On the other hand. Fayetle- ville could eliminate Rogers by seating both t h e Mountaineers and Conway. The possibility of a three-way tic is out, since Texarkana has won five games and either Rogers or Fayetteville will fall short of t h a t Lolal. But each of the three teams could still tie one of the other two. The Bulldogs defeated Rogers earlier this year, 68-66 at Fayetteville, and would have to sweep Ihe season's series to slay in Ihe running. However, should they do so and then wind up in a tie with Rogers, their two wins over the Mounties would not give them the tournament berth. According to Fayetteville coach Joe,Kretschmar, there would still he a coin flip. The same coin flip procedure applies to lies for all other positions in the race, in determining the teams' positions in tournament brackets. LINEUPS Tonight at Rogers, Fayetteville will likely go with the same starting lineup it has employed for the last five games: Charlie West. Mike Krelschmar, Tony Childress, Neil Bruton, and Terry Gulley. West leads the team in scoring with a 10.31 average, followed by Kretschmar with a 10.26 mark. Bruton and Gulley are third and fourth, averaging 8.2 and 7.6 respectively. In number of games started this season. West leads with 25. followed by Gulley with 22, Burton with 17, Childress with 13. and Kretschmar, who was injured for 14 games, with 11. Rogers' coach Bob Brown will start Mark and Mike Jones, Mark Branscum, Jim Leis, and either Mike. Stophlet or Kurt Klein. On February 6 when Fayetteville made up a 10-point deficit in the last three-and-a- half minutes of regulation play and then won in overtime, the Jones twins combined for 40 points, Branscum scored 15, and Leis added seven. B o t h Klein and Stophlet were held scoreless. By winning, Kayetteville expanded its lead in the all-time series to 64-26. Game time tonight is 7:30, following a 6:00 contest between the two junior varsities. The Bulldog jayvees, 19-5 for t h e season, defeated the Rogers junior varsity 51-45 earlier, also in overtime.
