' From the 1948 dedication of the stadium, the state's ''largest! with a seating capacity of '35,000, to the very last game of the 1951 uarn- palgn, the Razorbacks won only three games.; And those weren't major tilts— two being out and out and out breathers,' Abilene .Christian in 1948 and North Texas stale.

All the while, Arkansas managed to win its share .of big games at Fayet.teville and out of the state.

Much of the Golden Bears' e-c- cess may be attributed to a' pair of speedy sophomore halfbacks— L, G. Dupre and Allen Jones—who have OTowded the brilliant and experienced Don Carpenter ^nd Jerry Coody right out of the headlines. The latter two, however, still are listed as starters. ...« Also.

The Razorbacks, upset two weeks ago by Houston end one-louehdowTi losers to defending champion 'TOO last week, hope a revised offense will lift them 'back Into the win column. New Formation Coach Otis Douglas has been working on a new formation, which might be called either a deep split T or_a winged T, .and' is toying with the idea \ of getting three quarterback* Into the game at the same time. '•'.*•. At first, Douglas was using Lamar McHan, heretofore a quarter, at fullback, former fullback Lewis Carpenter at one end and Bob St. Pierre at quarter. Now he is trying St. Plerr* at the other end and Ralph Troillett «t quarter. Also, Jim Roth, a good blocker, has moved .up to replace Tom Oar- Hngton at offensive left tackle. Another factor which may help the Porkers Is the return to action of Jim Sperrlng, the junior tower of strength on defense. Sperring, who plays at either tackle or the man-over-center post when the opposition has the ball, missed the TCU game because of tonsilitls. A crowd of 25,000 is expected for the scrap.

All Agree: Scarbath Is Fine Quarterback By GEORGE BO'.VKN COLLEGE PARK. Md. Wl — Maryland coach Jim Tatum has »t least one area of agreement with coaches ot the teams he/s defeated so far this year—all arc convinced that Jack Scnrbath Is one terrific quarterback. The country's football writers and broadcasters lined up with Tatum, and the others by selecting Scarbath as back of ths week in the first weekly Associated Press poll. "There may have been some Just as good playing football around the country, last Saturday, but I know there were none better," Tatum Enid. "Everything he touched turned to gold. J jiist hope and pray he has as'good a day against Georgia this Saturday." Coach Prniik Howard of Clemson, defeated 28-0 by Maryland In last Saturday's game, said of the arylftnrt senior: "Truly tops for All-America-." Coach Don 'Fnurot of Missouri earlier had cist his All-America vote for Scnrbath afler Maryland edged out Missouri, 13-10. "I have said,'before and I am stil),convinced t'hhl he Is the finest split T quarterback I have ever seen," said Falirot who invented the offense and should know a good operator ot it. Maryland has won 2 out of 23 games since Scarbath, a mediocre high school football'player, took over as quarterback In 1959. But he's never stood out more than in Maryland's three triumphs this year as (he Terps piled up«a record of 15 straight victories. ' Against Missouri, he completed two.long passes in (he las{ three minutes to vLn the game. He pulled the same stunt the next Saturday to beat Auburn, 13-7. "That Is what makes an All- America quarterback — when he can pull nlmost certain defeat into a victory for his team," opined Coach Faurot. That's characteristio of Scar- bath, says his own coach, Jim Tatum. "Scarbath seems to play just as good as he has to—terrific when the opposition is tough Just taste it! You'll agree it's... tflft A sip, a taste, a.jiggerful —or mix it as yfiu like it! See for yourself why this "cheerful'. 1 whiskey has become the "world's largest selling Kentucky whiskey."

KENTUCKY and-sb-so when it's "easy." ' Against Clemson he rose-to the heights as it figured to be a battle He ran over for the first touchdown, passed for the next, set up the third with a 42-yard lateral play and the fourth with two straight passes good for 67 yards. He was in for only eight plays in the second half. By -that time he had carried the ball 13 times for 17 of the 146 yards gained rushing by .Maryland, -ancl- com- pleled seven of nine passes for 128 yards. "His passing broke Clemson's back," said Tatum. Strangely enough, passing Is the lesser of Scarbath's fortes compared with his faking and running on option plays. He bats Just about 600 on completions, but as one observer remarked, "He's the kind of player who hits a homer with the bases loaded in 'the cluicn."
