Arkansas Soph Shines as Cager PAYE7TEVILLE W) _ A Many, La., sophomore candidate for the University of Arkansas' basketball team sparkled in yesterday's workout with a nifty shooting exhibition.

The first such occasion I can recall was in 1033—when, like a lot of other kids, I slipped under Ihe fence around (he old Razorljaeic stadium, which stood .whore the University's Fine Arts Center is now. Arkansas needed (o win to finish first In the conference race. Just before the half a field goal by Elvln Gelser gave the Razorbacks a 3-0 lead. The Mustangs, with the Southwest's original aerial circus, came out throwing In the third quarter. Twice In a period of less than five minutes SMU's Hay Fuqua, a big and fast end, was behind the Arkansas secondary when he caught passes from J. R. (Jackrabbit) Smith. Each time Fuqua 'seemed on his way to a certain touchdown. But each time, a.fter a chase of odd yards. Porker quarterback om Murphy hauled the flying ustang down by the shoulders i the Arkanses u. The final score was 3-0, Arkansas l>ped the conference; Murphy, ala runner-passcr-punter deluxe these days of '60-nilnutft men, as voted the league's most valu- >le player, and any of the 8,000 llnesses —capaclt ythen — would cfy you to this day to cite a better efcnslvc play than Murphy's gems Two years later SMU's Rose Bowl 'am, one accustomed to walking /er all comers, visited Fayette- lle nnd was happy to get out Itli Us scalp, 11-6.

Pro Football Bows Out After One Year in Texas DALLAS (AP) Dallas was without professional football today just 11 months after it brought in a-franchise with fanfare and ballyhoo that said the game couldn't miss in big, The Arkansas Razorbacks, preparing for their game with Southern Methodist In Payettevllle, learned yesterday '• that .their ace fullback, Lewis Carpenter, definitely would not see action In Saturday's E»me. Larry Hogue Is due to replace Carpenter in the game with the Mustange. Meanwhile, end Ron Forrester, like Carpenter hurt in the game Nov. 1 with Texas A <fe M, ook part, yesterday in the offen- ive scrimmages against SMU plays.

Graves received a bruised lp last, week in Hie 21-13 loss to Besides Graves, the Aggies have free-spending Texas. The Dallas Texans, who Jost seven games out of seven and almost a quarter of a million dollars, were orphaned yesterday when the 16 stockholders turned the franchise back to . the National Football League. The Texans become a 'road club" and play no more games In Dallas. Coupled with the announcement that the Texans were quitting with little more than half the season completed was the statement that bid would fae made to buy the I club back when It came up for disposal probably next month. Group Ready to Go Financial aid was obtained with group ot moneyed men willing to take over and operate on a three-yp/ir basis but John Coyle, one of the Texans' trustees, said Interim financing" could not be obtained. 1 He. explained 'that the Texans didn't have the'money to operate during three weeks or more that would be required to effect legal transfer of the club to the new group. There were 40 bondholders who held. In effect, a mortgage on the franchise. That created the legal technicalities. Giles Miller, young Dallas textile operator who bought the New York Yanks franchise last winter and formed a syndicate to operate It here, said that while a small minority ot the owners wns willing make funds available to operate fitrther "«e were unable to obtain necessary co-operation from any others."
