SEOUL, SouHi Korea — Kang Razorbacks Seeking Three Final Wins By Frank Ellis Courier News Sporls Editor "The kids are still keeping their spirits up, we keep beating ourselves and we are not a strong enough team yet to make mistakes and not get hurt by them." Boh Cheyne, sports publicity director at the Univerisity of Arkansas, was asked to comment on last week's 33-21 loss to Texas A&M and about this week's clash with Rice and the above words were his immediate reply. "We are not a real bad team," Cheyne continued, "but we are not the caliber of past Razorback teams either. November, the '63 squad that went 5-5. The Razorbacks played in six bowl games in the past eight years and had an 8-2 team last year that passed up a bowl invitation. Broyles said after last Saturday's defeat that he could not find it in his heart to criticize his boys, the effort has always been there and that is the mjst any coach can ask of any player. Cheyne repeated this statement and added his personal agreement with it. Looking forward to Saturday's i battle in Houston, about the only | thing left for either team is a' chance to finish in the conference's first division. Last week's "If we can win these next two losses (Rice fell to Texas Tech, ball games (Rice and Southern Methodist, both on the road) it would clear the air for the final game with Texas Tech, and the boys would like nothing better than to close out the season with three straight wins." The loss to the Aggies gave the Porkers a season mark of two wins, four losses and a tie and • removed the charges of Frank Broyles not only from the Southwest Conference title picture, but eliminated any chances the- Hogs may have entertained for a post-season bowl bid. Only one Arkansas team in the last nine years has been out of the bowl picture in mid- 25-19) shoved both teams well behind the leaders, Texas A&M, Texas and Tech. "Quarterback John Eichler (injured against Texas) is the only serious injury we have right now," Cheyne added, "so! we are in pretty good shape for this weekend. "Tommy Dew,, 202 pounder, may be starting at defensive right end in place of Bill Ketcher, but that is the only line-up change we anticipate. It is just a question of Dew playing a little bit better than Bill and he seems to have earned a promotion to a starting assignmnt. "Rice has been hurt by a few tough losses but we are expect- ing a good battle from them' especially in Houston. "They have Robert Hailey! who is a great passer even if not in the same class with the Aggies Edd Hargett and he had an outstanding day last Saturday, getting some 370 yards in total offense against Tech." Cheyne had reason to fear the j Owls on their home grounds. For 36 years in the series, the Texans kept their Houston record virtually unblemished, showing 14 wins and two ties! prior to 1955 when the streak' was snapped by a 10-0 Porker i win. Since then Arkansas has won four of the six games played in Houston. With this home field | advantage, Rice holds a 25-15-2! lead in the series but the Razorbacks have won seven of the last ten and 10 of the last 15 encounters with the Owls. Cheyne advised that the Rice game tomorrow will be the 275th SWC contest for the Hogs since becoming a charter mem-! her in 1914. The Razorbacks, in spite of a 48-16-1 record under Broyles since 1958, are still slightly, below. 500 in conference play with a record of 127-137-10. Tomorrow's clash, the 43rd meeting between the two schools since their rivalry began in 1919, can be one more step toward evening the record. UMJUllig,. vjj/n.i. .1 *\v........ .j...,—.

Top-ranked Southern California received the good news Thursday that running back O.J Simpson, out of action last week with an injured foot, will be able to start against Oregon State. The Trojans survived Simpson's absence last week and beat California, but Oregon State is another matter entirely. The Beavers beat Purdue earlier in the season when the Boilermakers were ranked second in the country and last week they tied UCLA, also No. 2 at the time. Simpsons return makes Southern Cal Coach John McCay about the happiest man in Los Angeles. Already this season O.J has gained 1,050 yards in 203 carries. Also on the West Coast, ourth-ranked UCLA tuned up or Washington at Gary Beban | completed 15 of 17 passes in a ! scrimmage Thursday. The Bruins are 6-0-1 while the Huskies are 5-3. Second-ranked Tennessee. 5-1, meets Tulane, 3-4, and third- ranked North Carolina State, 80, has a tough opponent in Penn State, which is 5-2 and is riding a four-game, winning streak. Purdue, No. 5 with a 6-1 mark, is another team with a battle on its hands. The Boilermakers meet Minnesota, which is 6-1 and unbeaten in Big Ten play. The Gophers have won five straight. Indiana, ranked sixth and unbeaten in seven games, faces another potential barrier to ite Rose Bowl dreams, meeting Michigan State, which is dangerous despite its 2-5 mark. Wyoming, No. 7 and 8-0. plays New Mexico, which has lost seven in a row after its opening- game victory. Okalhoma, No. 8 and 5-1, meets Iowa State, 2-6, in a Big Eight .game. Ninth-ranked Notre Dame, 52, travels to Pittsburgh, 1-6, and 0-ranked Houston plays Memphis State, 5-2, at night. It may sound a little reidcul- otis but there was an actual case of a land owner putting such signs as above on his cattle to keep the "city-slickers" from mistaking his animals for deer. He might have About the hottest fishing spot in this area last week was Tulot. Several limit catches have been reported and most days the limits were fairly easy to come by. The cold weather seems to have driven the fish up around the stumps and trees seeking food. * * * .
