Exhibition records indicate that Detroit has an. even stronger team than won the NFL title the past two years. San Francisco's 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams figure to give the Lions a battle for top honors in the Western division. In the East, Cleveland has been hit hard by injuries and retirement of star players. But the Browns still have Otto Graham, a great oasser, and Lou Groza, one of the op conversion and field goal kickers of all time. for five to pull the defense in and then Quarterback Bobby Jones sent Edgmon driving inside the right end 29 yards for the touchdown. Fisher kicked the- extra point, his first of three for the night. By this time the Rams found themselves sadly lacking pepper as Blytheville. linemen, in one of their better spurts of the night leaked through the Rams' line in twos jand threes and they were forced to punt at their own 40 after three fruitless efforts. The kick was a short 23-yarder which Akers promptly brought back to midfield.

Akers is shown on a 56-yard runback of the kickoff which opened the second half, placing the ball on the Frayser 35. One more block would have sprung the little halfback.

Fisher got an appreciated assist from a Frayser lineman on the extra point try as his low kick bounced off the unidentified lienman's helmet through the uprights to give Blytheville a 14-0 halftone margin. A pass interception by Abbott set up the Chicks' final tally with 8:04 remaining in the third stanza. The Chicks drove to the Frayser is a sign that something is wrong. ' ship. The Philadelphia Eagles, best of- ensive team in the league last r ear and bolstered by the addition 'f Notre Dame fullback Neil Wor- .eri, appear to be Cleveland's chal- enger in the East with the Giants n outside possibility. The only head-on clash of pre- eason favorites • in the opening ound of games is the Cleveland- 'hiladelphia game before an ex- ected 40,000 fans at huge Munici- al Stadium i n Philadelphia. It's a ame that could have an important bearing on the Eastern champion- ball on downs. Then Pickle, who stayed in the Chicks' hair all night, tried a bold, gambling pass play on third down but Abbott hauled the aerial in at the 28 to start the Chicks goalward again. Edgrmon Again Akers tightened the Rams' defense again with a two yard stab at tackle, then Edgmon, on a cross buck from the T, scooted through a gaping hole at tackle 26 yards to pay dirt. "Fisher kicked the 21st point with the clock showing 7:22 remaining in the period. Blytheville's substitutes started filling in at this point and Frayser's offense began to click again. However, the scrubs stood the Rams off, with the help of a few remaining first stringers, for more than 10 minutes before yielding Frayser its only touchdown. The Rams got their lone score on an 80 yard sustained drive that! started from an automatic touch back on a punt by Fisher, A 24 yard pass completion tha was batted into the hands of th. receiver by Danny Edgmon, wa. the spark that set the drive mov ing.

Smith; No. Little Rock Tops Camden By TOM DYGARD Of THE ASSOCLVTED PRESS In football they say if a play is run correctly it will go for yardage even if the opposition knows what's coming. . The Pine Bluff Zebras probably will vouch for that axiom today after using the same man on the, same play time and again to beat the Fort Smith Grizzlies 25-14 at Fort Smith last night. " • A back named Royce White found a play that couldn't miss- hit right guard and cut to the left— and he rode the play for two touchdowns and much of the Pine Bluff yardage. The victory gave Pine' Bluff its first Big Seven triumph of the season and handed the" slim Grizzlies their second conference loss, In other Big Seven games Little Rock lost to Istrouma High o f Baton Rouge 36-20, giving up the most points yielded by any Tiger team since 1916; North Little Rock slipped past Camden 14-7; El Dorado trampled Ouachita Parish High of Monroe, La., 34-13 behind the fired-up running of Bobby Bates; Longview, Tex., shellacked Texarkana 41-7, and Benton beat helpless Hot Springs 6-0. Came From Behind Little Bock suffered its second straight loss to out-of-state competition. Istrouma is considered one of the top Louisiana prep teams, j and they showed the Tigers their wares by coming from behind and handing the Little Rock defense its Pirates Top Trumann 19-0 for Second Win BURDETTE — Burdette's Pirates scored one touchdown in the first half and two in the last here last night to turn back Trumann by a 19-0 score for their second win in three starts this season. for the first down to the Blytheville 28. Halfbacks Bill Stacy and Wilson picked up more than enough for another first down to the Blytheville 15 from where Pickle, on the option play, elected to keep and circled end for the touchdown. Pickle also got the seventh point on a sneak. The Rams kicked off and the ball game ended with Eugene Stephens returning the kick to the Blytheville 40. Starting lineups: Blytheville Pos. L.E.

The Tigers have suffered worse defeats — by numerical margins — but no team since the 1916 Memphis Central outfit had made more than 45 points on the Tigers. Central won the 1916 game 52-0. Oddly enough, another team that made 45 points on Little Rock was beaten. That was in 1951 when Clarksdale, Miss., Was outscored 48-45. North Little Rock's Wildcats led in only one department—scoring— to beat the Camden Panthers. The Panthers were the whole show in first downs, yards' rushing, yards passing— but they bogged at the goal line. One of North Little Rock's touchdowns came on a 35- yard pass and an aerial play covering 71 yards set up the other.. El Dorado's Bobby Bates, an all- Southern prep halfback last season, ran wild at Monroe. He scored four touchdowns with runs of 48, 14, 63 and 25 yards. He raced 85 yards nto the end zone on another occasion, only to have it returned by , penalty. He also booted four xtra points.

Champion Ray Pirctt Totals 41 100 2.44 The Texans coasted through the irst half, scoring only one touch- own, and then lowered the boom in the last two periods with five scoring shots from midfield. Hot Springs fell to Benton 6-0, marking the Trojans' third consecutive game without a score. In District 1AA competition, Van Buren won an important 32-13 victory over Rogers, which shows that a year can make a lot of difference. Last year the Mountaineers of Rogers were undefeated and Van Buren failed to win a game. The Deweil Basham to Pete Collier passing combination clicked for three touchdowns. Subiaco Wins Subiaco edged Fayetteville 26-25 in the other 1AA game, despite a tremendous one-man show'by Fay- tteville's Donny Stone. Tailback Stone scored all the Fayetteville ;ouchdowns and racked up a net yardage gain of 218, in contrast with Subiaco's team total of 199 Jonesboro lost to Clarksdale, Miss., 32-20 in a game that coutns m the Golden Hurricane's 2AA re- :ord and Russellville beat Conway ;4-7 in the only 3AA game this veek end.

T. Langley, the single wing Pirates pushed across a score midway in the first quarter when Langley broke loose at the Trumann 20 to go all the" way. Then the Pirates hung on with some fine defensive work that three times stopped Truman touchdowns bids. 55 Yard Pan Play After scoreless second and third periods the Pirates broke away for two touchdowns in the final stanza with scoring one and passing for the other. A pass play that carried 55 yards from Langley to end Don Payne, accounted for Burdette's second touchdown early in the fourth. Then late in the period after stopping a Trumann bid on the Burdette 30, the Pirates drove 70 yards for their last counter with Langley running the last 30 yards. The Pirates will be at home again next week when they play host to Osceola's Seminoles. • For their final two games against the Chicago White Sox, the Orioles had four, that's right four, managers — Rogers Hornsby, who hasn't been near the club in two seasons, Marty Marion, who also runs the White Sox, Jimmy Dykes and Paul Richards. As of Sunday it will be Richards all alone. Hornsby has had his last payment on a 3-year contract with the old St. Louis Browns and Marion, fired last season, has finished his contract. Dykes, working on a 1-year deal, has been replaced by Richards. The seventh-place finish is one notch higher than the club finished a year ago when it operated in St. Louis. But the won and lost record will be exactly the same unless the Orioles win today. The crowd total of 1,046,155 through last night is 333,237 above the all-time St. Louis record. Richards sat in the press box last night as his new team beat his old team 2-1 on a five-hitter by bonus rookie Billy O'Dell, his first major league victory. Elsewhere in the majors yesterday" the Detroit Tigers whipped the pennant-winning Cleveland Indians 6-4. Philadelphia surprised the New York Yankees 5-1. Washington won twice at Boston, 1-0 in 11 innings and 6-4. Milwaukee finished out its protested game with Cincinnati and won 4-3, then defeated St. Louis 4-2 in the first three-team doubleheader in baseball history. Brooklyn shaded Pittsburgh 6-5 ^ and the champion New York. Giants split at Philadelphia, winning 1-0 and" losing 4-2. Cleveland's loss left the Indians only two games in which to break the all-time winning record of 110 games in the American League. Arnold Portocarrero of the Athletics, one of the only bright spots in the, Philadelphia picture, held the Yankees to five hits while Jack Littrell and' Lou Liminer hit home runs. Stabbs -Beats Boston Chuck Stobbs of the Senators beat his old Boston mates for the fourth time this year as he went all the way in the 11-inning victory. The double defeat dropped the Red Sox into a fourth-place tie with Detroit and left Washington only a game away from first division.- WASHINGTON (ff>)— Marty Fur- jol was deadlocked with Gene Littler today for the lead in the $40 000 "World Series of golf."

Terry scored on plunges of three and four yards in the second and fourth quarters. Billy LaForge kicked one of his two extra point attempts. . The versatile Terry, who oiily became eligible this week when his parents moved from Keiser to the Shawnee district, played halfback, quarterback and defensive end as he led the Indians to victory. Powerful Punt Terry also uncorked a beautiful punt when he kicked from the Shawnee 46 out of bounds on the Marion seven. A hustling Shawnee defense bot- tled'Marion's running attack, which penetrated Indian territory only three times during the evening. Regular quarterback Harvey Seymour sat out last-night's affair. The Indian starter is expected to be out with an injury for about six weeks. Starling and Terry took over at his slot.
