(AP) — Tommy Trantham was conspicuous as a defensive half- jack at Arkansas during the 1965 season and earned All- Southwest Conference honors. His play has not been as spectacular this season but he jas had Ear fewer opportunities to display his skills. "He has been great all season," saj's Arkansas coach Frank Broyle. "They just haven't thrown on us this year as they have in the past." Trantham intercepted four passes in 1965 and returned them for 158 yards. The yardage totals include a 69-yard touchdown return against Baylor but do not include a 77-yard TD run with a fumble recovery against Texas in that memorable 27-24 victory at Fayetie- ville. Trantham set up Arkansas' first touchdown against Tulsa this season with an interception and intercepted a Baylor pass that led to the Porkers' touchdown. He has also recovered several fumbles and set up Aransas' initial touchdown against Texas with a brilliant punt return. "He has been real consistent jail year," says Hootie Ingram, the Arkansas secondary coach. Andrusyshyn May Make Difference By JACK STEVENSON |went surgery.

TORONTO (AP) - The leading U.S. team boosted its lead to 75 points Monday by winning first and third spots in the International Scurry Stakes at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fail Horse Sow. Mary Chapot of Wallpack, N.J., riding Manon, placed first, clearing 13 obstacles in :54.2. Teammate Kathy Kusncr of Arlington, Vs., was third on Aber- ali, during th» MUIM in :58.e. Tommy Trantham 'Other teams haven't thrown on his side much all year. He had a real fine game against Texas A&M," Ingram said. "He played the option real well. He also broke up the out route twice against A&M and that is one of the toughest to cover." TrantSiam is listed at six-foot- three and 195 pounds. Ingram thinks he has a chance to play pro football as a safety. "You can play strongside safety if you are a good tackier," Ingrain said. "He's not only a good tackier... he punishes the ball carrier when nej tackles him. He's got good height and that helps." | Trantham doesn't have blaz- 1 ing speed, but Ingram says he makes up for this knowing where the ball is. | "He's got this intangible to; be there when the hall is," Ingram said "He doesn't have the real speed qualifications but he's faster than some of those guys playing up there." Tranlham was given shot at split end last year because of is sure hands hut was moved back to the secondary where he was needed more. He was in on 28 tackles last year, was credited with four passes broken up, returned two interceptions for 38 yards and recovered one fumble. . Not bad, for a lad,who was told he couldn't play defense while playing at Little Rock Central. McKay explained to the Southern California Football Writers that UCLA doesn't have to penetrate so far to put Andrusyshyn into position for a field goal, and his 46-yard punting average gives rivals a longer way to go when they get the ball. The sophomore from Canada ranks second to Gary Beban in UCLA scoring with 60 points, 27 on conversions and 33 on field goals. He tried a 58-yarderj against Washington last Saturday that hit the upright above the crossbar. He has failed to kick a field goal in only two games this season. Andrusyshyn suffered a cracked bone in his right hand late in the Washington game, but that won't keep him out of action. "We have to stop Beban and Greg Jones to keep UCLA from the 50 so Andrusyshj'n Can't kick the field goals," McKay commented wryly. Prothro declared his Bruins will face "the biggest, fastest college squad I know of," and lauded the Trojans' ace halfback 0. J. Simpson as "big, fast, agile and nifty."
