(An — The Arkansas Razorbacks hud another mark in their victory column today, but they're probably glad they didn't play a leading South• west Conference contender here last night. The Porkers were cold in the first half, but ciimc back strong after t,he rest period to beat' the University of Pitt.sburgh, 41-36. Capt. Jimmy Cathcart, n-lin scored only four points before the intermission, was the difference. Switching from forward to center to fill in for the injured Bob Ambler, he dunked 16 points in the second half to put Arkansas across nnd grab individual scoring honors for himself. The Panniers had led, 18-13 nt half time. Arkansas Pos. Pittsburgh Cathcart (20) F.. (17) Mc.cro.ssin Hudspcth (2) P.... (i) Cecconi Brogsmiller (2) C. (2) H.ldosevicll Miller (3) ... G...
