Ith Holey TtlHaM ·imvi Big Afternoon For Programs It's really going to be one afternoon when you can't tell the players without a program when the Arkansas Kazorbacks break up for their Bed - W h i t e scrimmage in Little Bock. Anyone caught near t h e practice field and not already hobbled has been declared open season by the injury list. With the addition iif Chuck Dicus and J o h n Eichler. the casualty mark now stands at 16. Eichler's knee injury has to be the most critical. With Bill Montgomery resting an injured shoulder. John opened practice as the only veteran in the Arkansas camp. John also saw his chance as a first- teamer wiped out in a single play, a hard moment especially after three weeks of tenacious trials. The quarterbacking duties now fall to rcdshirt David Lundquist of Fort Smith and utility man Steve Walters of Springdale. The only other quarterback, freshman Walter Nelson, also had his knee caved in. Originally. Eichler w a s supposed to go all the w a y with the Red unit with Lundquist and Walters sharing time with the White unit. Now both men will go all the way with Lundquist joining t h e Working in the backfield with Lundquist will be Paul Blevins, the whippet tailback. and Frank McGehee, a solid redshirt fullback. Letterman tight end Pat Morrison will lead the receiving 'trio. Bill Lively, who has played mostly at tight end. will replace Dicus at split end. Junior College transfer Don Brennan will be the flanker... . . F i r s t learners Rodney nrnnd. Mike K e l s o n and Ronnie Hammers will anchor the interior line for the Red unit. WHITE HOPES Walters, the Porker physical fitness expert, started the year in the defensive back- ficld and didn't join the offense until Nelson got hurt. He will be operating with a backfield that has never seen any varsity action. Freshman Steve Jones will Cct the call at tailback with Russ Garber. the Kansas powerhouse, running at tailback. The flanker will he Mike Schaufele. S t e v e Hockersmith. who has proved himself with some spectacular catches, will be the split end. Walters is also expected to seek help from his Springdale buddy Roy Fears, who will draw' the assignment at tight end. First-learners Jerry Dosscy mid Bob Stankovich will provide the blocking for t h e White team. Lcttermen Gary Parson, the Hunlsville giant, and DeWitt'Smith are also on the first unit. DEFENSIVE PROSPECTS The depth will definitely he with the defense. Linebacker Lynn Garner and tackle Dick Bumpass along with halfback Jerry Moore and s a f e t y Dennis Berner will furnish the experience for the Red defenders. Richard Coleman, a dynamite fullback, will also start at linebacker. This gives way for the new names like tackle Roger Harnish and end Bill Lewis. Red- shirt Robert Lewis will be at middle linebacker. The White team may have the advantage on defense. With a front line of Ronnie Carroll, Rick Kersey. Lyndell T h o m a s and Gordon McNully, the Red team m a y never get off a pass. Cliff Powell and Mike Boschetti are the veteran linebackers, hut Bobby Fields is the only Ictterman in the backfield Kickoff time is slated for i:00 at War Memorial Stadi- urn. The second Red-W h i t e game will be here next Friday, if no one else pets hurt. DIAMOND CREW HOSTS TWIN'BILL Needing seven wins in their next eight games in order to set a new Arkansas baseball record, the Arkansas baseball t e a rn will host Kansas State College of Pittsburgh tomorrow afternoon at 1:30. The Lions Clubs of Arkansas, who are holding their state convention here t h i s weekend, will be the special guests of the Porkers. The Arkansas team ROW has a Ki-5 record, but t h e y dropped a pair of games last week to Southwest Conference teams in Dallas and F o r t Worth. The Porkers are 6-1 on their home grounds. Butch Hopkins (5-2). Jerry Hlackwood (4-1) and T e r r y Verhage (3-1) will likely share the mound duties for the Porkers. The hurlcrs can expect support from second baseman Bill Dorothy who is among the top five hitters in the nation.
