(Courier News i'lioto) Steers Forego Off Day For Full Scale Drills By JOB BENIIAM Of Tin: Assiii'lalcil I'rcss Condi Eel Price of the Texas Longhorns nrderetl a full scnlc work out yesterday, a day when the usual roulinc is an easy drill. Amazing Razorbacks Have Firm Grip on SWC Top Rung Unbeaten Hogs Were Early Season Choice for Cellar By RAY STEPHENS FAYETTEVJLLE, Ark. (AP) — A band of young Arkansans who had been picked to hold up the Southwest Conference from the bottom today are riding atop that tough football loop with a record oi' four straight triumphs. The astounding University of Ar- kansa.s Ra/.orback.s .soundly thrash- qd (he university of Texas 20-7 at Austin HnUU'cluy to maintain their undefeated, untied record and rate seventh among the nation's top teams it the Associated Press Poll of .sports writers and sports-casters. Coach Bowden Wyntt's crew actually has n five name winning siren k, starting with the conquest of Tulsa University in the final game of the 1953 season. So fiir this year, Arkan.Mi.s had dawned Tul::a -51-0; Texas Christian 20-J3; Baylor lil-^O. and Texas. Before the .sei^on opened, Wyati tokl new: nu-n that seven of the to Razorback foes would he the physical Mippnors of;. Won Only 3 Last Year "We miylit be a.s strong by the end of the year a.s we were at the of last season," said the coach. Arkansas won only three games while losing seven in 1953. WysiU, pointed to inexperience at tailback and center—where only .sophomores hold forth—and lack of talent at the ends, where there were no lettermen available, as weak spots thai- Ayksuir.ns would find impossible to overcome. Furthermore, Arkansas had lost by graduation the Southwell's top scoring punch of tailback Lantar Mclliin and end Floyd Sagely, both all conference .selections. Wyatt's green sophomores have played this year above all expectations, and two ends, Teddy Soutcr and Jerry McPaddon, have I developed into first line performers, j Arkansas' alert defense has been the secret of the Porkers' success.. [ In four games, the Razorbacks j hiive intercepted 12 passes and re! covered 112 of 16 fumbles by their j opponents. Virtually every miscue by an [opposing team has been turned into i nn Arkansas score. While the 61- j has shown only flashes oi '.real po\ver, it has been <j,ood enough j to capitalize on the breaks pro- j vided by the defense. ^OIIR: Hun i Against Ti-xjus. the Razorbacks' first touchdown came on a 20-yard runback of an intercepted pass by blocking back Pre.sion Carpenter. Another imerccpUon, this time by Henry Moore, stopped a Texas drive and set the stage for Moore to gallop 82 yards for a touchdown. In edging Baylor, the Porkers pulled off only one sustained drive, and scored their other two touchdowns—and a field goal—after obtaining the ball by covering Baylor fumbles. Lending the offense has been Moore, a 185-pound junior who has both speed and power. Moore leads the conference in scoring with 36 points and is the team's top rusher. I Ayainst Texas, the big fullback i curried 13 times for 125 yards— an averugc of 9,6 per carry, Another important factor in Arl' success lias been ihe play j of .sophomores George Walker and I Buddy Benson at tailback. Walker Hops ihe Southwest Conference as I a punter with an average of nearly j 43 yard-s per kick. Kicking Was Key An example of, the youngstefa ability is the Texas game. As a, result of Walker's kicking, the Lon^horn.s started their iirsl four scries of plays on their own 3, 20, 15 and 13. Walker put the Steers deep in their own territory with a 67 yard quick kick. Benson is second to Moore m rushing:, but has been forced to play with the second unit because of weak passing and kicking. Arkansas' line is well-manned with a veteran crew of light, but fast, lettermen, led by guard Bud Brpoks. Brooks, who switches to tackle on defence, drew this comment Iroin Wyati, who i.s reluctant to cUscu&s his athlcic.-* umil ihe season is over: "Brooks is all that any coach could possibly ask in a lineman." Only one of Arkansas starting linemen, sophomore i^uai'd Dick. Hardwick. tops 200 pounds. Arkansas' victory-hungry fails, who haven't rooted for a winner since 1946. celebrated the triumph I over Texas with cries of, "We're in the Cotton Bowl." ••we still have six tough games to play," replied Wyatt. Fullback Bob Davenport of UCLA carried the ball 113 times last season as a .sophomore. He gained 438 net. ysu-db for a 3.8T average and scored seven touchdowns.
