Thursday, Sept. 5, 1968 Saints Slate Drill At Fair Park Field ' By BILL McINTYRE Times Sports Editor The battle lines are being drawn for Friday night's National Football League preseason scrimmage between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings at State Fair Stadium, but if this rain doesn't come to a screeching halt the battle lines may be obscured come the 7:30 V. w 1.. 1- fl1 y. in. jmlkuli. Game officials and members of the sponsoring Shreveport Sports Foundation have spent the past two days looking skyward, and there was one big ray of hope. Reports indicate that this string of rainclouds should be gone from the Ark-La-Tex by game day. It was also learned that the Sports Foundation sponsors aren't armed with rain insurance this time out so this exhibition game currently stands at the mercy of the elements. The advance ticket sales, it may be added, have counted up some 15.000 pregame purchases which leaves 15.000 seats still available through the Sports Foundation or Palais Royal stores. "Last year's matchup between the Saints and St. Louis Cardinals, won by the Saints, drew 25,000 spectators. Arrival Times The Saints will arrive en masse between 12 noon and 12:30 this afternoon and will work out at Fair Park High School -beginning at 1:15 before checking into their quarters at the Shreveporter Motel. They will fly back to New Orleans immediately after the game. The Vikings will arrive at 4:30 this afternoon, following a morning workout in Minneapolis, and will be lodged in the Ramada Inn. They, too, will depart by chartered jet immediately after the game. OJ, immediate concern to both coaches, Tom Fears and Bud Grant, are the injury lists which will keep some half - dozen gladiators out of action. The Saints will miss running back Don McCall for some six weeks because of cracked transverse processes, tight end Monty Stickles is ailing with a sprained knee, defensive back Elbert c Kimbrough with , I 1 a hamstring pull KIMBROUGH and split end Dave Parks is doubtful with a pulled hamstring. Among Viking casualties are regular right guard on offense Larry Bowie, victim of a bruised shoulder, he'll be replaced by Jim Vellone, and running back Dave Osborn. Dave, second lead1 .g rusher in the National F ,otball League last season, underwent knee surgery yesterday morning after missing two previous games. Quarterback Gary Cuozzo, out with a pulled shoulder, is in the doubtful category. Much has been made of Cuozzo's first appearance against his former Saint teammates in the game here, but the Vikings have announced that Joe Kapp, who went the distance in a 31-28 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday night, will definitely start against the Orleanians regardless of Cuozzo's condition. But the revenge motive willl be present elsewhere as Tom Hall, another ex-Saint, backs up Paul Flatley at flankerback. Hall eaucht an 18 - yard pass from Bill Kilmer to launch last year's 23-14 uoset of the Cardinals at State Fair Stadium Also listed at flanker with the Vikings is 31 year - old Art Powell, a pass-catching great for eight seasons in the American Football League with New York. Oakland and Buffalo. Powell, a step, slower perhaps was picked up last week as a free agent. Karl Sweetan, backup quarter back for Kilmer, is ailing with a i. f MHi Tig : ... t I - SAINTS' PUNTER TOM McNEILL . . . StepKfft F. Austin product maizes good if She dime minor wrist injury so there is some concern among the Saints. They are now down to hist, twn quarterbacks since disposing of cuozzo to Minnesota and Gary Wood to the New York Giants. The Vikings got some pleasant news along with the medical charts. Veteran tackle Grady Alderman and Vellone, a holdover guard,! both signed their '68 contracts ' with team General Manager Jim Finks yesterday. The Vikings, who have averaged 33,397 attendance in four exhibition games, stand 2-2 with wins over Denver (AFL) and rnuadelphia and losses to Kansas City (AFL) and St. Louis The Saints are 2-3 with wins over Boston (AFL) and Cleveland and losses to Los Angeles, Houston (AFL) and Atlanta. Saints, Vikings Pro Clubs List Cuts For Game Times Sports Service me iew Orleans Saints Wednesday trimmed their roster to the prescribed limit of 43 by asking waivers on rookies Joe Blake and Tom Carr. Rookie defensive tackle Willie Crittendon walked out of training camp earlier this week and was placed on the reserve list. Crittendon, a 300-pounder out of Tulsa, will play for the Orange County (Calif.) Ramblers of the Continental League. The Ramblers have a working agreement with the Saints. Crittendon was the Saints fourth-round draft choice. "I'm disappointed in my pro gress," said Crittendon. "I'm not ready for the National Football League yet." Blake, a teammate of Critten don's at Tulsa the past season was the club's ninth-round draft choice. He was given tries at offensive guard and defensive end. Blake, a 6-2, 280-pounder, will probably join the Saints' taxi squad. Carr, from Morgan State, is 6-4, 267-pound defensive end. He had also tried out with the Saints in 1967. The Vikings made their latest cuts a day earlier as five players were dropped off the team roster Tuesday. They were tight end Mike Donohue, split end John Henderson, center Walter Ram sey and defensive backs Mike Freeman and Tom Sakal. All were rookeis except for Henderson, a four-year veteran acquired from the Detroit Lions in a trade. Donohue played college ball at San Francisco, Ramsey at Ouachita Baptist at Arkadelphia, Ark., Freeman at Fresno State and Sakal at Minnesota. Players cut Wednesday from the rosters of National and American Football Leagues: National League DETROIT Linebacker Ron Goover, Randy Winkler, Greg Kent and Solomon Brannam.

Gonzales Triumphs Over Aussie Roche By WILL GRIMSLEY FOREST HILLS, N.Y.

The aging Mexican-American from Los Angeles, playing a fierce opponent 18 years his junior, fought off four set points in the opening set, rallied from 1-4 in the second and broke Roche's high-bounding left-handed service in the third. It was one of the most magnificent performances ever seen on the center court at the West Side Club. A crowd of 8,000 gave the Arkansas Evens Playoff Series LITTLE ROCK, Ark.

In the women's division, Maria Bueno of Brazil, four-time U.S. Women's Amateur champion, gained the semifinals with an upset triumph over powerful Margaret Smith Court of Australia 7-5, 2-6, 6-3. The result reversed the score of the U.S. Amateur last week in Brookline, Mass., where Mrs. Court won the title for the third time. The big Australian's service failed her against Miss Bueno Wednesday. She served seven double-faults and double-faulted at match point. Miss Bueno will play the top-seeded Billie Jean King of Long Beach, Calif., the Wimbledon champion, who had trouble with what she called Maryna Godwin's "garbage" and defeated the unseeded South African blonde 6-3, 3-6, 6-3. "Maria dinks the ball over and hits a variety of shots like a net cord that cost me my service in the eighth game of the second set," Billie Jean said.

PAUL (API Gary Bell stopped Minnesota on six hits and drove in the tic-breaking run with a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning, pacig Boston to a 10-2 Bossier at Minden Flyers, Tribe Kick Off Season Tonight By PESKY HILL , Defending Class AA state champion Jesuit goes up against District 1-AAA power Fair Park and Bossier's growling Bearkats invade the home field of the Minden Crimson Tide as the curtain on local high school football lilts. The Flyers will enter tonight's fracas with a 13 game win skein held over from last season when the Jesuits of Coach C. O. Brocato were undefeated. Fair Park meanwhile was ending up the '67 season with seven straight wins and just missed the playoffs by a hair. Brocato's Flyers were rated the top team in Louisiana by the Associated Press in the pre-sea-son poll and he had this to say about it late last night, "We feel pretty good about that but the game tonight will be tough." Halfback Lenny Lewis, who did not play in the jamboree last week due to an injury, is not expected to see action tonight either according to Brocato. "We may use him if he is needed, ' was the 1967 AA Coach of the Year's comment. Despite not having the fleet Lewis in top shape the Flyers do have a strong runner in halfback Tony Calantone (185). Returning for his senior season is all-state guard Sam Gregorio (185), one of the finest lineman in these parts. Also doing respectable jobs for the Flyers in the trenches are guard John Reslovich and tackles Nick Elina and Pat Payne. Fair Park on the other hand has one of its stronger teams in recent seassons and is billed by many as the team to beat in the tough District 1-AAA. Coach Gene Dcrveloy, in his initial season as top boss, has plenty of depth and the usual big, tough linemen. Carrying the most beef up front are tackles Nick Wibben (215) and Joey Rossler (200). Southpaw throwing quarterback Richard Cain showed that he is a capable passer in the warm-up last week and Cain is always a threat to put the ball in the air if it is needed. If the weather is what it has been the past few days then the Tribe may have to use their running backs more than usual. In that case Steve Forrester, Richard Hester and Darrell Kendrick should carry the mail capably. Forrester (170) sat out in the jamboree due to an injury to his back. He will be in uniform tonight and his quickness should be a factor. Hester electrified the crowd last week with a glittering 88-yard run-back of a kickoff He is always a threat. Kendrick on the other hand led the Indian ball carriers in the iam and showed to be an efficient runner. Bossier's Bearkats, a team that was hot and cold last year, is expected to come up with a sronger team in '68 than last season when the Milforcf An- Victory victory over the Twins Wednesday night. Bell also drove in an insurance run with a single in the eighth when the Red Sox pushed six unearned runs across as the Twins' defense collapsed.

JERRY GRIFFIN, a 175-pound running back for Bossier High School's Bearkats, will be one of Coach Milford Andrews' leading touchdown threats in the season-opener against the Crimson Tide at Minden tonight. The senior galloper piled up 88 yards rushing and scored once against North Caddo in last week's Bossier Jamboree. See Story. (Times Photo by Billy Upshaw.) y vr drews coached Greenies were in contention for a playoff berth until meeting up with District 1-AAA co-champion Woodlawn in the season final. Andrews said despite the wet weather that his club had worked out in the rain. He also commented that "We expect them to utilize their quarterback (Jerry Haynes) on the sprint out pass." "We also understand that they are good defensively." The 'Kats are heading into their fourth year under Andrews after a successful run in '67 and although losing two top players who moved away, Bossier should be in the running for the District 1-AAA title again this campaign. The two lads who transferred were halfback Jack Fraser, now toiling for the No. 1 ranked LaGrange Gators, and tackle Tim Smith, who plays for No. 2 ranked Holy Cross. Smith's father ironically, is a Baptist minister. Although losing the fleet Fraser the Bearkats still sport an explosive backfield led by bruising tailback Jerry Griffin. Griffin completely ran over the defenses in his team's impressive 12-0 win in the Lions Club jamboree. Fullback Joe McNeely and wingback Chris Caplis are also fine runners but didn't have much of a chance last week as Griffin was the big story. Quarterback for the Bearkats was supposed to be a problem this fall but Andrews may have found the right signal caller in little Joe Gay. a junior. Gay was three for four in the passing department last week for 46 yards. He also sneaked in for one touchdown. Bossier's line is strengthened by all-city candidates Bobby Wyche at center and Logan Killen at tackle. Wyche is a linebacker on defense for the 'Kats and turned in a sparkling performance in the jamboree as did 255-pound Lewis Frost. Travis Smith, a running back with good speed and a defensive standout for the 'Kats last year, is still recovering from a bruised leg and will see limited action. Coach Billy Roach's Crimson Tide returns four starters to its backfield and quarterback Jerry Haynes (130) is the leader of the sprint-out passing Minden eleven. Mike McCrimmon, a 175-pound fullback is considered the best ground gainer for, the Webster Parish gridefers. Roach says of the Bearkats, "We respect them and we'll need an all out effort to beat them." The other local high schools will play either Friday or Saturday. Friday's schedule has Byrd at Ruston, No. 3 ranked Woodlawn at top rated LaGrange of Lake Charles, and Captain Shreve visits West Monroe. Saturday's action has Airline at Lake Charles High and North- wood hosting Logansport.
