injured Bedlam Continues as Dodgers Nip Giants Coming Back players, including By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Key players who had been sidelined with injuries were back in action at a couple of Big Eight Conference football practice sessions Monday. Missouri, which could muster just 82 yards rushing in its 19-0 loss to Stanford last Saturday, welcomed the return of Jack Bastable, the junior tailback who missed the opener with an ankle injury. But Coach Al Onofrio said he wanted a further look at Bastable before deciding whether to start him Saturday at Air Force. Several place kicker Reggie Shoemake, were taken off Iowa State's long injury list as the Cyclones began their final week of preparation for the opener Saturday with Idaho. Shoemake was recovering from a bout with mononucleosis. Getting Better "Our injury situation is getting better, but not as quickly as I would like," said Coach Johnny Majors, who held seven players out of Monday's two- hour workout because of their wounds. At Kansas State, Coach Vince Gibson reported that middle guard Charles Clarington would be out for the season after undergoing knee surgery over the weekend. •• Kansas, Colorado and Oklahoma State, all of whom showed more strength than anticipated in opening week victories, turned their attention from past successes to next week's challenges. Colorado Coach Eddie Crowder staged a light, but closed- door workout in preparation for Wyoming Saturday. Kansas put in two hours on the practice field Monday, and Coach Don Fambrough said another intensive session wqs set for today. Starting Wednesday, the Jayhawks were to begin easing off in order to be in top shape for the Baylor game Saturday. Coach Floyd Gass at Oklahoma State warned that the Cowboys, surprise 26-7 victors over Mississippi State Saturday, would have their hands By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "It was just the Giants and Dodgers," Charlie Fox shrugged. "It's always been that way." It was that way 20 years ago when the Giants called the Polo Grounds in New York their home, the Dodgers caroused barely 10 miles away at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn and fans called their pennant race one of history's greatest. And it's still that way although the Giants have moved to the windswept Candlestick Park in San Francisco and the Dodgers bask in the Los Angeles sun 350 miles away. "That way" is the call-'em- every - dirty -name - in - the book, stomp - on - 'em - when- they're - down, get - away with - all - the - murder - you- can, don't - turn - your - back- on-'em-way — and that's the way they played it Monday night—although played is hardly the right word. Any way, the Dodgers won 5-4. And fans are calling this pennant race one of the great ones. In 1951 it was the Giants who came on like gangbusters to catch the Dodgers, then beat them in the playoffs on Bobby Thomson's incredible home run, the "shot heard 'round the world." Now it's the Dodgers' turn— and they've turned what barely a week ago seemed like a boring, let's-get-the-schedule-over- with season into sheer bedlam. They've won seven in a row and 12 games in 14 while the Giants have lost eight of nine. An 8^-game San Francisco lead in the National League West has dwindled to two—and the collision at Candlestick is only half over. Elsewhere in the National League, Pittsburgh opened a 6%-game lead over St. Louis in the East, beating the Chicago Cubs 5-1 while Philadelphia was beating the Cardinals 6-5 in 10 nnings, Houston edged San Diego 3-2, Cincinnati slipped by Atlanta 2-1 in 13 innings and ,he New York Mets beat Monreal 4-2 in a rain-shortened 'ive-inning contest. AH Homers Two-run homers by Richie Allen and Willie Davis and a solo shot by Willie Crawford gave the Dodgers all their runs while Jim Ray Hart had a round-tripper for the Giants — jut that's only technical stuff. What really happened is that Bill Singer of Los Angeles and Juan Marichal of San Francisco staged a beanball war, Billy Buckner tried to talk to Marichal on the mound with a bat in his hand and the umpires decided several players would be better off outasight ... of each other. "The wind blew me all over the place early in the game," said Singer, who hit Willie Mays and Chris Speier with pitches. "I was just trying to throw strikes. It was obvious I wasn't trying to hit anyone." Nevertheless, Marichal brushed Singer back twice in the next inning, the fifth, then repeated the act with the next batter, Maury Wills, and finally hit Buckner with a fast ball. Out to Talk "I just went out to talk with him," said Buckner, who had to be restrained when he rushed the Giants' ace right-hander. "I don't need a bat to handle him but I couldn't lift my arm after being hit and I needed the bat in case somebody wanted to take a swing at me." Players from both teams poured onto the field, and al- Joins Exclusive Club O's Frank Robinson Belts 500th Homer full this week with sixth-ranked Arkansas. "The important thing is that we're going over there as winners," he said. "The people of Arkansas think we come over there every year just to play well, but we're going over there to win." While Nebraska's number-one ranked Cornhuskers were beginning preparations for Minnesota, Coach Bob Devaney told a luncheon audience at Lincoln, Neb., his team's 34-7 win over Oregon was "as good an opening game as we have played since I've been at Nebraska." Countryside Golf Prizes Awarded By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ' It flew through the air with , the greatest of ease and rattled ; in the left field ghostland. The ball wasn't hit as well as he would have liked and there weren't many to witness its historic flight, but Frank Robinson will nevertheless take the 500th home run of 'his career. "I thought about standing there and watching it, or doing cart wheels or shaking hands," said the Baltimore Orioles' star after belting No. 500 Monday night off Detroit's Fred Scherman and joining an exclusive club with only 10 other mem- '' bers. Robinson didn't do any of those things, but h£ did clap hands as he circled the bases with his two-run . clout in the ninth before a few faithful fans who remained to see the Orioles drop a 10-5 decision to •Detroit "in" the second game of a twi-night doubleheader. Robinson had belted No. 499 in the first game as Baltimore won 9-1 and moved closer to Robinson, "but I do want to keep this ball." Oakland just about cinched the West with its victory over the runnerup Royals as Jim "Catfish" Hunter joined Vida Blue as the A's second 20-game winner. "I feel like I'm a pitcher now that I've won 20," said Hunter, "winning 20 is always a pitcher's dream. This game is worth more to me in every way than the perfect game I threw in 1968." Rick Monday knocked.in the winning run with an llth-inning single to' break up a duel be- though no punches were thrown, it took the umpires quite a while to remind them that the idea was to play ball, not brawl. When the game resumed Buckner, Marichal and Giants pitcher Jerry Johnson, who charged home plate Umpire Shag Crawford, were out of it. And except for the fact that it was only the second time the Dodgers had beaten Marichal in 23 Candlestick decisions, it was your average baseball game. And they play another one tonight. 45 For Stargell Willie 'Stargell of the Pirates snapped a scoreless tie with his 45th homer in the seventh inning before the Bucs pulled away as Steve Blass recorded his 14th victory with a five-hit- Page9 The Hutchinson News Tuesday, September 14,1971 Baltimore American League East W 89 L 52 Pet. .631 GB TIMES ARE TENSE — An almost riot occurred between the San Francisco Giants and the Los i Angeles Dodgers in the fifth inning of Monday night's game after Bill Buckner of the Dodgers had a ball thrown by Giants' Juan Marichal come a little too close.

He did not name any of the candidates. DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Lions have released four- time all-pro defensive tackle Alex Karras on waivers, a spokesman for the National Football League club announced today. Karras, 36, was one of four players cut to bring the team down to 40 players for the start of the regular NFL season. "The decision on Karras was the roughest one I ever had to make," said Lions' coach Joe Schmidt. No reasons were announced for the dropping of Karras, long the bulwark of the Lions' defense. A member of the team since 1958 when he was drafted from the University of Iowa, Karras was the oldest Lion both in ago and years of service. He underwent surgery to his right knee following the 1970 season. Under NFL rules, Karras is available to any t. e a m that wants him, but cannot be recalled by the Lions. Sooiee Pig! Football a Religion in Arkansas By BARBARA CAYWOOD I've been to a lot of football games in a lot of places, but I've never had an experience like last weekend when husband Bert and I went to Little Rock for the game between the University of Arkansas and the California Golden Bears. Football, Razorback style, is a combination of a disease and a religion. The entire state mobilizes on Saturday if the Razorbacks are playing in either Little Rock or Fayette- vilte. Wooo Pig! Sooiee! is a sacred chant 'and sitting in the midst of 54,176 pig callers can be deafening, to say the least. The whole idea of the trip to Little Rock was to see the former Hutch Juco Blue Dragons who now play for the competing schools, Jack Morris for Arkansas and Donnie Wilcox and Lonnic Grit- tenden for California, It was disappointing to the extent that Jack was the only one of the three we saw in action. Donnie, a quarterback who came, to Hutchinson from Plains, has a bad case of ten- donitis in elbow of his passing arm and is unable to throw without much .pain.. Lonnifi, originally from Newport News, Va., is getting the eligibility run-around from the Cal coaches and didn't even suit up for the game. However, we did have a long visit with both young men Saturday afternoon. Both are rather disillusioned with West Coast football and as Lonnie put it, "Hutchinson sure seems like heaven." Jack Morris, who came to Hutch from Shawnee Mission and who is married to the former Cindy Bontrager of Hutchinson, was defensive captain for the Razorbacks Saturday night. Jack has had one injury after another since going to Arkansas, but was all healed and ready to go to the opener against Cal, won by Arkansas, 51-20. Morris played a fine game in his new free safety position (he had formerly been, a cor- nerback) and recovered a fumble that set up a 52-yard field goal by all-American candidate BUI McClard just before halftime It was a very poignant scene at (tie conclusion of the game when the field cleared and the three former Blue Dragons met right at midfield. It was the first chance the three had to see each other. Meanwhile, back in the mania, the kids were all wearing pig heads, the women were carrying red pocketbooks with pigs all over them and everyone had cushions with pigs. We got our tickets from Lonnie and they were on the 50- yard-line. Before the game, we could have sold them for at least $30 outside the stadium as ticket seekers carried signs or just held up money. The crowd of 54,176 was a record, topping even that of last year's Texas game. The broadcast of the game is piped In to every store or restaurant that has an intercom, prices jump at all the motels for football weekends, the Razorbacks arc extolled in every sort of souvenir imaginable from tic pins and earrings to pennants, aprons and "piggy" banks. There is a doll, dressed in Arkansas outfit, called "Little Soo." All of the motels and many organizations and clubs run buses to the gamo (sure beats trying to fight that mob for a parking space). There is only one topic of conversation on the bus—how badly the Razorbacks are going to beat, in order, tonight's opponent and Texas. Texas is the thorn in the side of Arkansas and beating the Longhorns is a year-round project. Just to show how far this "pig" mania goes, the motel where we stayed had red Razorbacks and Wooo Pig! Sooiee on the plastic glasses and napkins, the plucemats in the rcstuarunts had the same thing as did doormats in the grocery stores. Banks and department stores have permanent red nigs on the sides of the buildings. As wo were inching through the traffic on the way to the stadium Saturday evening, Bert glanced at the policeman trying to direct the mob commented, "Arkansas is probably the only state in the union where the police are proud to be called pigs." And' Wooo Pig! Sooiee to that! Julin Malous The Dragons open their home season Saturday night when they meet the Coffeyville Red Ravens. It is also the first Jayhawk Juco Conference game for the Dragons. Malous said the only injury in Saturday's game was a twisted ankle suffered by corner- back Richard Chisum. Running back Keck Kimbell, who injured an ankle in the Alurnni game, did not play against Ellsworth. "The conference is really what counts," Matous said, "and we didn't want to take any chances before Keck was ready." Matous said he was pleased with the two freshmen wide re- c c i v e r s, Tom Ruane (who caught three TD passes) and Dan McClurc. Hawks Face Southeast Here Friday The Hutchinson High Salt Hawks, flying high after last Friday's upset 20-18 win over Wichita North, go from the frying pan to the fire as they prepare for Wichita Southeast. Southeast, another of the "huge" Wichita teams, comes to Gowans Stadium -for the Hrnvks home opener Friday at 7:30 p.m. Tha Hawks did not suffer any serious injuries in Friday's game. Coach Glenn Percy has indicated there will be some changes in the starting lineup, but will announce those later in the week.
