P4GE TEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) .COURIER NEWS TOTSBDAY^DEC. *, Arkansas Sportettes Observers Are Wondering Just What Bear's Game Is By CAR I, BELL LITTLK ROCK (AP) — A lot of folks ru-e beginning to s aspect that Bear Bryant is using the University of Arkansas coaching vacancy to get a better deal at Kentucky and may lake the Razorback post only as a last resort. Arkansas authorities In position* ~ ' :~"~ to know have said the Job is Bryant's If he wants It. The Bear Is taking his own ewect time about giving a definite answer. The danger to Arkansas Is all this is thai, should Bryant decide and announce that he'il remain at Kentucky, the man who would have been Arkansas' next choice may already have been signed up by some oilier school. There were Indications that U, of A. .officials expected an answer from Bryant as soon as Ills Kentucky team closed Its season last Saturday. Still no word, ami Bryant has gone hunting with the governor of Kentucky. Arkansas' coach screening committee has announced that Bryant will visit FayetteviHc to look over v the situation. When? This week? It doesn't seem likely Inasmuch as the mentor said he would keep on hunting wildlife until Thursday. And, on Thursday, Arkansas Ath lellc Director John Bnrnlilll ,nnd Dr. Delbcct Swartz, chairman of the, screening committee, are to go to the Southwest Conference mect- Ing at Dallas. These two men surely would want to confer with Bryant if ant! when he visits the campus. There's a question as to whether Bryant acutally. is the top choice of the body which will do the final selecting, the Board of Trustees. Reportedly,' the trustees arc sharply divided on the subject. Whoever the new mentor turns out to be, he'll have a free hand to pick virtually all of his assistants. Reportedly,''all ol ttie resigned Otis Douglas'; staff—except veteran aide George Cote find freshman mentor Slncey booncy—have received reminders that their contracts expire Jan. 1: Even Trainer Bill Pencil is. said to have r<y- ceived k pink slip. • Jones, Akers, Abbott, Randle, Hall Place on All-State Squad Blythcville Junior High's Papooses, which haven't lost but three games in the past three years, placed their T Quarterback Bobby Jones on'sccondj string all-state and four of hie teammates on honorable mention.

NF.W YORK Ml—At first glance t might seem the New York Alh- clic Commission wns a little trlg- 3er-happy in shooting Sugar Ray off'hls throne In the Empire State, even if only for the lime being. But Chairman Bob Christenberry and his two helpers ha.vo dealt before with Monsieur Sucre, as he is known along the boulevards of. Gay Parce, and Manager jcorge Gainford. So their Impatience nnd irritation is quite understandable. In dealing with the peerless champ and his manager,.you start off with the premise (hat "A" is "Z" and vice versa. After traveling the short road the long way, a deal is sometimes made.- While discussing the commission's action In stripping Ray of his royal purple, Chrlstcnberry said thnt Robinson, had told him only a few days before that he wa-i "through fighting."

A. program of controlled football television t o d a y, b 111 remained very doubtful about what course should be followed in the future. Two questions- concerning tele-* vision were included in the As-' sociated Press post-season questionnaire about developments, in the Just - ended football campaign. One was: "Did the'.NCAA's restricted TV program have any effect on attendance?" The other: "What' do you think the 1053 TV program should be?". A comfortable majority of the experts answered "No" to Ihe first query although some said It. with reservations.-Most of 'the others who saw some effects gave the opinion that small, colleges .still were hurt by the televising of big college games. Only a few thought Ihe gnme-a;weckj restriction had Improved attendance anywhere -or bad prevented declines!••'•'.• It was when Ihe experts came to the second question that the tut, the words and the suggestions began lo fly. About four out of every five replies favored restrictions and controls. of some sort, but they were far from, agreeing on what restrictions and who should exercise the controls; . About 60 ballots, roughly one third of the total, put an OK stamp on Ihe 1952 program and suggested continuing It for another year. About 35 favored putting controls on a regional basis, either allowing each of the eight NCAA districts to sot up its own program, as proposed by Doug Mills of Illinois and Fritj Crlsler of Michigan, or under some similar system. Another 30 ballots proposed he was finished. Dr. Vincent Nardiello, Ray's personal physician, has . insisted all along ; that Ray won't fight again.

Now Ray says he'll have Just one more fight with Randy Turpln football television wide den on Thursday evening, Jan. 20. | and call It quits, win or lose. Could Entries will close Friday, Jan. 16.

BOSTON, 051 — Tough Tommy 'ollins of Boston found himself smack ln;lhe middle of both the ightweishl and featherweight boxing title sweepstakes today after lis spectacular' triumph over ex- lightweight King Lauro Salas of Monterey, Mexico. The wiry 23 - year.- old belter surged back to an unanimous 10- round decision before a packed Bosto'n. Garden throng of 13.909 after the durable Mexican all but tnocked him put in the first round. Catches Lcil A whistling left hook to the chin dropped Collins to one knee for the mandatory 8-cbunt at 2:05 of the opening, session and then .the busy Salas'slammed him-.with a tqtal.of al least 40 punches in n open either on a one-year trial basis or permanently. A number of observers favored broadening the present NCAA program to put several games on the nir each week, either nationally'or regionally. Others just wanted more games and several proposed changes in the programming method so thnt the "big" game could be selected each week as the season progressed. Other .suggestions included complete ban-on TV, limiting TV to sellout games or delayed midweek, showings of films, blacking out the immediate area of a big gnrne and limiting telecasts to the Immediate area. urious, two-fisted followup. That crushing attack left Collins iatlon his face 'and helpless as •eferee Eddie Curley tolled the count. But ' the bell sounded as iurley and Collins' handlers dragged him'to his corer. From thai almosL disastrous beginning, the clever and colorful Bostonian fought .back .' gamely. This year, Bill Williams Delta State boxing star and Golden Gloves finalist In the Southern and Mid- South Championships in handling the ringsters,; , • ' Coach Williams won the Southern AAU Middleweight Championship In 1047 at New Orleans. . The same year Williams was the runner-up in the Southern Golden Gloves Championships held in.New Orleans.

Anxious to -make some more fat paynights like the 514,000 he collected last night (Salas got 510,000), Collins won't be idle long.
