SOUTHWEST CONFERENCE W L Arkansas Rice Texas SMTJ Texas A&M Baylor TCU Surprising Porkers Own 2 SWC Victories By RAY STEPHENS FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Alert defensive play paid jff again for the Arkansas Razorbacks Saturday as the Hogs ook the measure of Baylor 21-20. i.otx .oot .out .<xx .00 .000 .00 It was Arkansas' third straight riumph of the 1954 football cam- algn, and left them atop the South •est Conference standings with two Ictorles against no defeats. In running up a season mark of -0, Arkansas has shown flashes of ffensive brillance. Against an inept University of Tulsa squad, the 'orkers rolled at will on the at- ack. But in the last two contests, it has been the defensive play of Coach Bowden Wyatt's crew that has spelled the difference. An intercepted pass and a 64- /ard runback set the stage for the ouchdown that beat TCU. Saturday, reserve guard Wayland Ro- >erts broke through to block an attempt by Baylor to kick an extra >olnt. Thus, Roberts was the man who provided the margin of vic- ory. If Baylor had made that point, Preston Carpenter's IJ-yard field goal would have been good only or a tit. Arkansas has demonstrated a jonsistent ability for cashing in on .heir opponents' mistakes; of tak- ng advantage of every break. Baylor outplayed the Razorbacks i almost every offensive department Saturday, but the Bears umbled four .times, and Arkansas turned each of the miscurs to its advantage. The game statistics best illustrate [ust how much Baylor did outshine he Razorbacks offensively: Baylor racked up 17 first downs to 10 for Arkansas: led in rushing yardage 232 to 164; and gained )7 yards passing to Arkansas' 65. In all, Baylor ran up 329 yards on offense, while Arkansas could garner only 219. Baylor Coach George Sauer believes that the four Bear fumbles cost them the victory. "You just can't fumble that often against Arkansas," he said. Roberts, who was demoted from the first unit last week, was the game star for Arkansas, sharing honors with Carpenter, who scored a touchdown in addition to his iield goal. • Besides blocking that critical extra point kick, Roberts recovered two fumbles. Joe Thomason, a defensive stalwart against TCU, again turned in an outstanding performance, as did Bud Brooks, Eddie Bradford, Bobby Proctor and Jerry Ford. Arkansas was impressive in put- ling on a full-fledged drive to score the first time it got the ball. The Razorbacks moved 52 yards on 11 plays with Henry Moore plunging cross for the touchdown. Moore, jeorge Walker and Thomason did ( nost of the ball carrying on the march, and Walker completed two asses to keep the drive alive. Walker's 61-yard quick kick set he stage for the next Arkansas ally. On the first play after getting le ball, Baylor's Allen Jones umbled and Carpenter recovered or Arkansas on the Bear's 11. Arkansas socred on three running >lays, with Walker slipping off ackle to tally. Baylor cut the lead a Jew minutes ater on Billy Hooper's passes »nd .lien Jones' runs. Jones skirted end to score and Charley Smith converted. Arkansas added another touchdown before the half after recover- ng another Baylor tumble — this, me by Bobby Jones, the Bears' second string Quarterback. Ford covered the ball for Arkansas on he Baylor M. A pass from Walktr to Carpenter which covered 11 yards was good or the touchdown. ' Baylor really started moving after the Intermission. The 3ears pushed Arkansas all over the field o score twice in the third quarter and take a 20-18 lead. Reuben Saage, a big, bruising fullback, did most of the damage, and ended the game as Baylor's eading ball carrier for the day. iaage plunged a yard to score _3aylor's second touchdown, and Smith again converted. Arkansas couldn't move after taking the kickoff, and Baylor took ;he ball and drove for another ,ally. Hooper went around end from the two. It was after this score that Roberts blocked the kick. The Razorbacks were moving goahvard when the drive stalled on the Baylor four with fourth down and two yards needed for a first. Wyatt sent Carpenter in to kick and the junior blocking back put the tee down on the 12 and came through with a beautiful kick. Baylor started another drive, but once again the Bears fumbled. Arkansas got the ball and ran out the clock.

In past years the Lions just rolled .over and played dead icir the Rams, winning only 4 of 17 meetings since 1946. Yesterday the best the Rams, admittedly still shaken by the bruising tie with San Francisco's 49ers the previous weekend, could do was a field goal as Detroit rolled to a 21-3 triumph. Not once did Norm Van Brocklin the Rams' ace passer, get off one of his famed touchdown heaves. And when he tried to direct the Rams on a ground attack Detroit's defense bunched up to give up just 61 yards. The victory •— constructed on a 1-yard plunge by Tom Dublinski, a pass interception and Lew Carpenter's 60-yard scoring run—gave the Lions a 2-0 record in the Western Division and set them up for a Saturday night home encounter with twice-beaten Baltimore of the Eastern Division. The only other unbeaten team in the Western Division had a tough time staying that way yesterday. The 48ers found themselves seven points down in the final period at Grien Bay. but with the help of Y. A.

Philadelphia beat Pittsburgh 24-22 Saturday night. Tittle, injured in the Hams' game, rushed in against the Packers and 11 plays later the 49ers were only one point back. Again at work, Tittle tossed a 53-yard pass that carried to the 16 and five plays later he himself pushed over from the 2 for the deciding Dragons Have Three More Home Games Harrison High's Dragons will pla: three more home games during th 1954 football season.

(Courier Newt rhotoj They carne home from that one o a terrific welcome last night. Tecumseh Court in front of the midshipment dormitory was dark when the buses pulled in, but with- n seconds it was brilliantly lighted and filled with 3,600 shouting midshipmen. Some of the names they hailed were strange to last year's varsity roster. Some were buried among the jayvees or so far back among the varsity subs that only their parents knew they were there. Dick Echard caught public attention fast as one of these Johnny- come-latelies. Hardly anyone heard of him until the Dartmouth game, when an injury to first-string quarterback Qeorge Welsh gave him his chance. Echard threw two touchdown passes to pull Navy ahead. Echard had been playing football at the academy for three years, with the plebes (freshmen) and the junior varsity. He's no exception. There are two other seniors in the first- strinfr line, Len Benzl at guard and Bob Davis at center, who haven't earned a varsity letter yet. At tackle is Jim Royer. who also slaved on the Jayvees last year and at end Jim Owen, who •as fourth string on the varsity. At the start of the season, Coach Eddie Erdelatz admitted it sounded trite but said most of any success the Navy team had would be due to "a great desire to play football." Echard is more than bearing j him out. The 188-pounder from Peoria, HI., was described In Navy's publicity brochure as "determined Sporting Hews Names Mays And Avila Top Players of 7954 ST.
