Man Says It'* the System — Douglas' Pro-Sty led Offense is Analyzed By CARl, BEIX LITTLE ROCK (AP) — A.passing parade: The Arknnsas Razorbncks arc the passingcsl team and the most pnssed-against team in the Southwest Conference, a league in which the boys like to throw that ball around. Metre Dame Using Psychological Warfare in Preparing for Sooners In seven games, the Porkers have passed ICO timos find their opponents 155 times, taking ndvnn- tnge of Arkansas' leaky aerlnl defense. That's n totnl of 321 tosses, or nn average of 45,8. per game. Rice, which meets the Razor- hacks at FnyetleviUc Snturd^y. Is second In lino — Its games averaging 43.3 passes. The Owls themselves have thrown 150 times. So, U's quite reasonable to assume those tennis will he in the air most ol the afternoon at Fay- ettevllle.

Rice 1ms 1 con- ncctecj on only 36.7 per cent of Its tosses; Arkansns on 39.8 per cent. under Oils Douglas , the Razorbacks have averaged 15.57 points ganie. In 42 under the punt- and-hbld'Barnhlll style, they averaged 17.19, The Douglas defense has yielded nn average of 18.37 a game, while the style of guarding brought to Arkansas from close-to-the-vest Tennessee by BarnhlH gave up only 13,04. Of course, no one can say how Lhe material varied over the two terms. But, at' least, Porker followers still are looking for offense — dj now, defense to go with It.

Notre Dame Will Be Test For Nation's Grid Greats Fred Balgh, owner of 'the St. Louis National League club, said last night he has protested the matter on two counts—the local American Leaguers either "tampered" with Brecheen while he still was a Cardinal pitcher or did so after he had an oral agreement to become or both. a Rcdblrd coach. Brecheen. 38, was signed by the Browns last week to pitch In 1053. Salgh satd he didn't "want Brecheen back on my club," adding that he did want "our neighbor to quit meddling in our affairs." Brownie owner BUI Vceck Immediately denied the charge saying: "We adhered to the rules and have nothing to worry about. He's Just trying to save face. I'm very happy to have him protest, because I've lost so. many protests, nnd misery loves company." Rules Violated? Saigh contends the Browns couldn't legally talk to Brecheen until Oct. 28. Brecheen said at his home in Ava, Okla., that Marty Marlon, the Browns manager, didn't talk to him until Oct. 22 or later. Salgh said his club nsked waivers on Brecheen Oct. 10. He Mid a seven-day period ' follows for other clubs to claim the pitcher. Another six-day period, Snigh snlrt, 'ollows, during .which Brecheen could reject -any claims on him since he is a 10-year ninn. "Then, Snigh added, comes another five : dny period before the club has to grant an unconditional release. Actually, Snigh added, Brecheen has never asked for or received release from the Cardinals. Cites Argument • To back up the second point of his protest to Prick; Shlgh.said Brecheen hnd agreed orally, the dny waivers were^ asked on him, to become n Cardinal coach.
