COURIER MEWi PAGE EliETEN Narleski Slips, Yanks Pick Up Game On Indians; Chisox Fade By ED WILKg The Associated Press Ray Narleski, Cleveland's fire-balling fireman, finally made a slip — and with it, the Indian's may have lost their footing in the race for the American League pennant. Washington revived the Indian sign it's had on the Injuns for one parting shot last night, handing the 26-year-old right-hander his first defeat of the season while dumping the Tribe 3-2.

Washington, only club to best Cleveland over the season (13-9), was stopped cold by Narleski in Poholsky's three-hitter. At Milwaukee, the Braves clubbed the and George Crowe.

By ADKKN COOPER FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — University of Arkansas Coach Jack Mitchell has said quite frankly he is pleased that his Razorbacks have been picked to finish sixth in the Southwest Conference by league sportswriters. Mitchell obviously hopes the newspaper clippings will goad his Hogs into an all-out effort to convince the writers that winning last year's championship was no fluke. On paper, it's amazing that the defending champions have been dismissed as title contenders.

Studio at 628 W. Main Phone 3-8890 Mitchell Pleased Porkers Ranked Low reasons lor laclc of confidence in the Porkers: (1) Arkansas has had soma famous flops in the past few years; (2) a defending champ almost never repeats in the South- West conference (the Texas A&M team of 1939-40-41, Texas in 42-43, and SMU in 1947-48 were the only teams to win the title twice in a row); (3) the Razorbacks are learning a new system the split T under a new coach; and (4) except for the 41-0 conquest of Tulsa, the Porks didn't run up any one-sided scores last year. Of course, those four factors are onJy mental blocks—but very real just the same. Here's how the Razorbacks look two days before their opener here with Tulsa: QUARTERBACKING — It's a new system for letterman George Walker last season's single wing tailback and Soph Don Christian lacks seasoning, but both have made rapid progress. Buddy Bob Benson, switched from haliback at the start of fall drills, fell farther behind in training when he suffered a leg injury. He'll miss the Tulsa game. i Waker. is a fine passer,'a somewhat slow but clever runner, and he is cool In the clutch. He is a leader and uses good judgement on the field. Christian seems to possess all of these qualities and, in addition, is a fine runner. He will probably get the experience he needs in a hurry. PASSING — Even though the ends were inexperienced at the start of last season, Walker connected on 45 of 35 passes and Benson hit 19 in 30 tries. The overhead game should be even better with six capable ends — including five lettermen—available for duty. They are Ted S^uter, Billy Lyons, Walt Matthews, Jerry McFadden, Olan Burns and Soph Charles Whitworth. Souter, 5-11, 175, is the only "little" man among the half dozen. RUSHING GAME — The Hogs will make more yards—and more mistakes—in 1955. The carriers, led by Preston carpenter and Henry Moore, are experienced and talented, and they'll gain momentum as they learn more and more about the split "T". Right halfback Carpenter is considered an All- America candidate because of his all-around play. Moore, an All- Southwest Conference fullback, is five pounds heavier (now 190) with no apparent loss of speed. LINE PlAY — Here again, the same men will be doing a slightly different job. There are nine Letter- men available for the five positions from tackle-to-tackle. DEFENSE — Improved. Ther« aren't so many changes to learn here, and it could be the Porkers' strongpoint. Only one touchdown pass got past Razorback defenders last year. DEPTH — Better than In left*, although a little thin at quarterback and tackle. Mitchell plans to sub by units "if we are. able." KICKING — The Mitchell - style quick kick ie an odd thing to watch, but it should be almost as effective as the similar single- wing maneuver. Instead of the usual snapback, the ball is centered to the fullback, who turns 90 degree! and kicks a low end-over-end ball off the side of his toot. Moore and Nesbitt have become quite proficient at it. Now ... Four Roses introduces a companion... Four Roses BOURBON body, smoothness, mellowness.
