(AP)-Tiie light heavyweight championship in the world of boxing still belongs lo Dick Tiger who today nude secretive plans to take it back to the new republic of Biafra in strife-torn Africa. Tiger, almost as amazing at" the age of 38 as another ageless former light heavyweight champion, Archie Moore, successfully defended his crown Friday night when he scored a 12lh round technical knockout over a game fighter and the No. 1 challenger, Roger Rouse of Anaconda, Mont. Tiger Weighed 16814, Rouse 174'/2. Referee Jimmy Olivas didnt bother to count to 10 when, after 22 seconds of the 12th Roger ran into a solid, short righl hand that dumped him to the canvas —!iis third and final trip to the mat-and spelled finis to his long quest for the 175-pound division championship. * * * Tiger turned tiger in the ninth round in Ihe Las Vegas Convention Center, flooring Rouse with a powerful left hook lo the jaw. Rouse slruggled lo his feet al about Ihe count of six and took the mandatory eight-count. He absorbed a bad healing bul lasted the round. He also came up with a horrible cut over the right side of his mouth from the left hook. It was to gush blood from then on, masking his face in crimson. Rouse hit the deck in the 10th, this one from an overhand right; again Ihe mandatory eight, but Roger was still trying to get back. Quick, in the 12lh, it was over. Rouse was dropped, rolled over on one shoulder lo put an end to Montana's first bid for a world boxing title. "The only punch that hurt me was the last one," he managed to say later before he was hustled over to a hospital to get his lip sewed up. * .* * • But for eight rounds it was close. One judge had it dead even. A second judge had Tiger by just one. Tiger got a morale boost just before the nationally televised fight. He learned for the first time in nearly six weeks that his wife and family were safe in Biafra, and that he was the father for the seventh lime—a girl, seven pounds, born seven days ago.

In Cotton Bow/ Razorbacks Face SMU In Dallas By Frank Ellis Courier News Sports Editor The University of Arkansas Razorbacks will be in Dallas this afternoon for their next to last game of the season, a season which has been one with high moments and low moments but one which has provided exciting football for thousands of Porker fans in and out of the Land of Opportunity. Frank Broyles' men have produced an unsatisfying 3-4-1 record (2-2-1 in league play) but one that should be viewed in light of the fact that 1967 has been a rebuilding year for Broyles and his staff, a fact Broyles himself often pointed out throughout the spring and fall practice sessions. Bob Cheyne, sports publicity director for the Hogs, pointed out earlier in the week that "as incredible as it sounds, the Southwest Conference race is so jumbled that Arkansas, with its 2-2-1 record, pan still .tie for the '67 championship. "It would take a little arm- twisting," Cheyne said, "starting with two Razorbacks wins over. SMU and Texas Tech at Little Rock, then both Texas (against TCU) and Texas A&M (against Rice) would have to lose this weekend, and wind up playing their Thanksgiving Day game to a lie. "You can throw the SWC record book away if this happens," Cheyne commented. * * , * Today's battle with the Mustangs, the forty-third time the foes have met, finds the Razorbacks trailing in the overall series by only two games, 1921-2 while SMU holds a 14-6-1 advantage at Dallas. This Hogs have been able to garner eight wins over the Ponies in the last nine years and 10 of the last 12 to come very close to evening the series. Cheyne pointed out that the teacher-pupil rivalry between j Broyles and Hayden Fry of ; SMU will continue into its sixth j year with Broyles holding a 4-1 lead.. They first met when Broyles was backfield assistant (under Bob Woodruff) at Baylor in 1947-49 and Fry was the Bear quarterback. Then Fry joined Broyles' Arkansas staff as his offensive backfield coach for one year (1961) before going to SMU. Broyles won first meeting, 9-7 in 1962; Fry grabbed the next one at Dallas, 14-7; and Broyles has won three straight, 44-0, 24-3 and 22-0. + * + The Razorbacks will be making their second straight trip into Texas and they will be trying to keep alive their chances of finishing the year above the .500 mark following last Saturday's 23-9 victory over Rice. In that battle, David Dickey added to his SWC scoring lead with two more TDs lo give him 11 for the season and 19 in the last 12 Porker games. With another year to play, Dickey is only five TDs short of the Arkansas career record set by Bobby Burnett in 196465. Dickey might become the seventh U of A player to produce 20 or more touchdowns in a career on Saturday, joining such stalwarts as Burnett (24), George Cole, Garland Beavers and Dick Miller (each 22), and Leon A-.- C- oimetic (D BY FABERGE Tigress Woodhue Aphrodisia FOR MEN Brut Woodhue BY REVLON Imtimate Aquamarine BY CORDAY Fame Toujours Mol Possession MAX FACTOR Hypnotkuie Primitif Golden Woods Promesse BY COTY Emerude Imprevu L'Amant I/Origan Paris BY DANA Ambush Tabu 20 Carats Emir Platine FOR MEN Canoe Pullman Other Fragrances Chanel No. 5 Wind Song Old Spice Old Spice Lime ,, British Sterling English Leather Chanel For Men Black Watch Passport 360 Jade East Russian Leather Signature Karat* • •••••to*********** Come In And Brows* Mali Drugs DAY SHOPPING CENTER Campbell and Billy Moore (each 20). Defense told the tale in the win over the Owls and Broyles is looking for a repeat performance from such men as Gary Adams and Tommy Trantharo who sparked the Hogs with their punt returns and interceptions in Hoston. More than defense, however, will be on the minds of. the Rozerbacks. The team rushing leadership is still up for grabs and he leader for 1967 probably won't be decided until the final game. At the moment, five players are bunched together within 90 yards of each other, with only the injured John Eichler ruled out of contention. Tailbacks Russell Cody (294) and Mike Hendern (292) are running one-two with Eicher third at 228. Dickey is fourth with 211 and Fullback Glen Hockersmilh By runs fifth at 204. Passing Ronny South is challenging the Arkansas school record as he moves into the Cotton Bowl this afternoon. The senior from Russellville has connected on 52 of 86 at- temps for a .605 mark, close on the heels of the record. 625 held by Jack Robbins since 1935. BIG JOB—Center Bob Johnson, All-American candidate for the University of Tennessee will handle the ball-snapping chores for Coach Doug Dickey's gridders as the second- ranked Volunteers tangle with Southeastern Conference foe University of Mississippi at Memphis' Memorial Stadium in what ranks as one of the lop clashes of the football weekend. A win will all but assure the Vols of the conference title and a probable invitation to the Orange Bowl.
