(AP) — Arkansas' surprising Razorbacks will seek their third straight victory of the 1954 football season here tomorrow afternoon against the tough, injury-hampered, Baylor Bears. but The Porkers, conquerors o£ Tulsa and TCU. are sure to meet a toucher brand of competition in Baylor, despite the fact that the Bears' best running halfback, L.G.

Duprc was hurt in Baylor's 19-13 upset loss last week to the Univer- Capitani Tops Small Colleges 150-Pound Fullback Is Offensive Leader NEW YORK Iff 1 )— Tiny Ralph Capitani of Iowa teachers, a foot- hall fullback despite his 150 pounds, if off to a flying start, in defense of his small college individual offense title.

A capacity crowd of 18.000 fans is expected to Jam Razorback Stadium for the Southwest Conference game, highlight of the third annual Dad's Day campus celebration. The weather outlook for the afternoon contest is for partly cloudy skies and mild temperatures. Arkansas will be at full strength for the tilt in contrast to Baylor's long list of injured stalwarts. Blocking back Bobby Proctor, end Walt Matthews and fullback Joe Bill Wilson, all reserves, were injured in the TCU contest, but Coach Bowden Wyatt reports that trio will play. Proctor, whose last minute pass interception set the stage for the Porkers' winning touchdown in the 20-13 upset of TCU, suffered a minor knee injury .Wilson sprained an ankle, and Matthews suffered a bruised arm. Arkansas will be striving to maintain a clean slate for 1954. Besides whipping TCU, the Razorbacks opened their season with a 41-0 triumph over Tulsa. Baylor, victim of an upset -. against Miami, won its first two" games, trounching the University of Houston 53-13, and edging Vanderbilt M-14. The Bears had been considered by many observers to be of championship caliber this year, but that was before Dupre was lost. Another Injured Bear who won't play against Arkansas Ls quarterbael: Doyle Traylor. while tackle James Ray Smith, halfback Ronnie Guess and guard Henry Rutherford hav'B been slowed down by less serious injuries. Arkansas' lineup will be virtually ' the same as it started against,. TCU. The one exception is at., strongside guard, where sophomore Dick Hardwick of Pine Bluff has been moved ahead of senior Way- .• land Roberts. Hardwick won the promotion for his excellent play • against TCU. The Razorbacks are expected to • open with Teddy Soutcr and Jerry McPadden at ends: Eddie Bradford and Jim Roth at tackles; Hardwick and Bud Brooks at ' guards; Jerry Ford at center; Preston Carpenter at blocking back; Joe Thomason at wingback; Henry Moore at fullback; and' George Walker at tailback.
