Chicago RECORD CROWD — This is a portion of the crowd at Gosnell High'i iootball ,gam« last night. The turnout was estimated at 2,000 and probably the biggest crowd ever to see a game in Gosnell. Piggott defeated Gosnell 13-0. Gosnell, Wilson Defeated; Upset by Dragons SEMINOLES DRIVE TO 3 0 if David McCultar and his Wilson High Bulldogs were feel- Ing bitter after they pulled away from Marked Tree last night, It was understandable. But they weren't .The coach and hit youngsters got together and agreed to forget everything that happened. "The kids' attitude Is the only good thing .to, come out, of the ball jame," McCullar said. "But we're still wondering where our break Is." Wilson was closer than the 20-7 loss Indicates. In other area prep battles. P'Sgott defeated Gosnell 13-0 in 2-A: Osceola trumped on Tru- niann 34-13 hi a non-leaguer; I-'arrison High's Dragons of Bly- t'-eville whipped West Memphis In the last quarter, Marked Tree intercepted a pass deep in Wilson's territory with four minutes remaining and scored. Then Wilson's Terry Warhurst was called back on what looked like a TD run. "Our kids played a tremendous game," said the coach of the underdog Bulldogs. Next week is homecoming at Wilson. * * * Responding to a big turnout at Gosnell, J.A. Smith's Pirates fired out at the Piggott Mohawks but couldn't quite make it. . . Both Piggott scores were set up by pass interceptions, one in the first quarter, the other in the fourth. Mike Bare went -7-hi'Triple A; Shawnee was \ 21 yards for the first six-pointer bombed' by Parkin 40-0; and Caruthersville raided Hayti 43-0. The play that took the cake and-the icing at Marked Tree was still being talked about today. Evidently the officiallost the ball on a clever fake by he Wilson quarterback and when the Bulldog was tackled, the official blew the whistle. Meanwhile, the Wilson boy with the ball was about 30 yards downfield and ahead of the pursuing Indians but the whistle blew him to a standstill. McCullar said he asked the official for a ruling but did not get a reply. Marked Tree scored and it was 6-0 at halftime. Gary Gidcomb rambled two yards for the next TD. Edwin Brawner kicked the point. Smith was not displeased with the work of his defense. "It was the best defense our kids have played. .They were really hitting. I'm really proud of 'em." * * * As usual, Eugene Lee was the big stopper in the Gosnell line. "But they all did well," Smith pointed out. "They played heads up.' he third quarter when he Inter- epted a pass raced 85 yards. On the pass he caught from borrow in the fourth quarter, e ran 50 yards after catching Howard Cissell was pleased with the speed the boys dls- ilayed. The coach also pointed to his efensive line as one of the major reasons the Seminoles are undefeated in three games: 'oe VanCleve, Wayne Burnett, )ale Pendergraft, Dick Phaup, Tommy Beard, Barry Phillips and Gladden, also to the line- lacking of Bennett. Osceola pushed more than 200 yards On the ground. * * * Ira Young's Dragons led West Memphis 7-0 at the half but Curt Barnett couldn't escape notice or mention on defense first I for Gosnell. The gutty kid, an when a Wilson boy thought he had Intercepted a pass in his end zone but the pigskin skidded out of his hands and Into Bill Payne's for a TD. James Hamilton fired it. He's a great one. Wilson drove the ball 60 yards fa the second quarter to tie the score 7-7, Larry Stewart running the final 33 yards and Billy Bussey kicking. Wilson cranked up another drive with two minutes remaining in the half. They moved the ball 80 yards to the MT eight but a heartbreaking .penalty ruined that. A bad snap from center that went ov«r the Wilson punter's head but the Dogs in a serious position in the third quarter, Marked Tree took over at the four. The host Indians were held end, only weighs 125, but was in on more than his share of tackles. Gosnell marched to, the enemy 15-yard line in the second quarter and twice blasted inside the Piggott 20 in the last half, but couldn't hit the bulls- eye. Gosnell i due at Corning next week, a 2-A game. * * * Quarterback Phillip Morrow uncorked four touchdown passes to lead the Seminoles past Trumann in their home opener. In the first quarter Phil threw to Ronnie Curtwright, 16 yards; to Larry Gladden also in the first 25 yards; to Mule Bennett in the third, 25 yards; and again to Gladden in the fourth, 80 yards. Morrow also kicked the four extra points and completed nine for'two downs, then swept of 15 passes for221! yards. Glad .cross the end and into the end'den scored a TD by himself in six-point barrier to get the Harrison boys on the board in the first quarter. He ran 25 yards; lal Davenport contributed' the extra point, running. It was 7-0 at the break. A freak play enabled the favored West Memphians to draw even in the third quarter. At the six the Dragons stopped the visitors for a loss but the bal; popped into the end zone anc they dropped on it for six points. Alvin Clay added the clincher for Blytheville, running 30 yards on a handoff from Bur nell Williams. Al shook loose from several tacklers who hi him. With 3:20 left to play, Clay also ran for PAT. - - *. • * ' * defense was "Our super. again," Young commented.

BOWLING/ Dodgers Find the Key By TAB AWOIATED PRESS What pennant race? There was, or at least there seemed to be, one In the Na- tonal League only a few days ago,but now you can't be sure. The first-place Los Angeles Jodgers, using the same tactic hey used In capturing the pennant last year, increased their ead to Wi games over Pittsburgh and four over San Francisco Friday night by defeating he Pirates 5-1 while the Giants ost to New York 5-4. The tactic the Dodgers used ast year was simple—win, win and win some mare. Now they're doing It again. * * K Just one week ago the Dodg- ;rs were tied for second with ian Francisco, each 114 games behind the Pirates. Since then Los Angeles has von all seven Of its games— the winning streak is eight over all — while Pittsburgh has dropped four of five and the Giants four of seven. That combination has been enough to open for the Dodgers' ;he biggest lead since the Giants ed the Pirates by four games on June 28. In winning the 1965 pennant, the Dodgers, who were 4H games out at this time, won 13 straight games and 15 of their last 16, while the Giants managed only a 9-8 record In that time. * * . * Perhaps, It's such a situation that prompted Friday night's losing pitcher, Bob Veale, to say: "We're npVout of it yet. They have 11 games to play on the road. Who knows, maybe they might lose eight or nine of them." And maybe they won't, at least rtot while they have Sandy Koufax pitching. The brilliant left-hander stopped the Pirates on five hits and posted his 24th victory, most in the majors, against eight defeats. "Sore arm my foot," Pittsburgh's Roberto Clemente muttered after the game. "I not Say his arm not stiff after game, but it can't be hurting when he's pitching. If it did, he couldn't throw that hard. He threw as hard at he ever has." * * * In other NL games Atlanta' whipped Cincinnati 7-0, Houston " topped Philadelphia 6-4 and St. Louis swept Chicago 3-1 and 4-0. Bob Gibson became the majors' fifth JO-game winner in St. . Louis' opening • game triumph; over Chicago. He received help . from Curt Flood, Whft drove In,"" all three Cardinal runs. Mike Shannon's three-run' ~ homer powered the Cardinals irt'~ the second game. The eighth- inning blow -roke up a score^".,. less duel between St. Louis' AT Jackson and the Cubs' Rich Nye. THE LIGHTS GO OUT There seemed to be no way to turn off the Kansas City Athletics... so Washington turned off the lights. Actually, the Senators were innocent bystanders Friday night when a power failure blacked out their game against the Athletics, who have been ablaze in the closing weeks of the American League season. The A's went into the game with a seven-game winning Streak and designs on a first- division finish for the first time in 14 years. Their young pitchers were working on a string of 27 scoreless innings and had allowed only six runs In the last 60 innings. Kansas City's Lew Krausse and rookie Barry Moore of the Senators were locked in a scoreless duel in the third Inning when four of the eight light towers in D.C. Stadium went out, the result of a fire in the transformer. Repairmen checked the damaged system and deter- mined it would take 48 hours to- get the lights working again. The game was suspended, to be resumed before the clubs'; scheduled game Sunday. The A's and Senators already' were in the dark when the lighfe dimmed for New York's Jim Bouton, who pitched 7 1-3 innings of perfect ball but was beaten by Minnesota 2-1. Meanwhile, pitchers Joel Hor^ Ine of Chicago and Hank' Aguirre of Detroit stepped out of the shadows as the White Sox blanked first-place Baltimore 4^ 0 and the second-place Tigerj whipped Cleveland 3-1. Elsewhere, Boston edged California 54 on Carl Yastrzemski's two-run double in the ninth. : BATTING — Bud Harrelson, New York, socked two triples,, scored one run and drove in another before stealing home in the ninth inning with the winning run in the Mets 5-4 victory over San Francisco. •• HUNTERS' LOG.

' .Coach Frank Broylei will have five sophomores in his starting linwp tonight when the *ork«rs ep«n their season h«rs against Oklahoma State University. The kickoff Is set for 7:30 p.m, before an expected capacity crowd of 47,000 in War Memorial Stadium. » * « Exactly one-half *f Arkansas' varsity players are sophomores, but the return of such stellar performers a» quarterback Jon Brittenum, wlngback Harry Jones, tackles Loyd Phillipi and Dick Cunningham *nd linebacker Joe Black have placed the Porkers on the spot In the SWC race. The shift of All-SWC defensive back T«nmjr Itaittum to split end should partially offset the I yards and ran for 224 last year loss of Bobby Crockett, who teamed with Brittenum In the last four minutes when Arkansas scored a 27-24 comeback victory last year over then top- ranked Texas. Brittenum and Jones, a pair of All-SWC backs, are the danger men in the Razorback attack. "I think Brittenum is as good • quarterback as there Is In the country," says Broylei. "He'i proven that he can lead a winning football team and this has to put him ahead, In my opinion." BritUnyn parnd tor 1,101 leading Arkansas to 10 straight victories. He suffered a shoulder injury in the Cotton Bowl game when Louisiana State stopped Arkansas 14-7, snapping the then longest winning string in college football at 22. Broyles says Jones will handle the ball more this year. The swift 204-pound senior averaged 7.7 yards on 82 carries last year and pulled In 16 pam* for 297 yards. Broyles iay« Jones' greatest asiet li hi? knack of cutting at full speed. "I think Iw «q BUMUV* At full speed better than most outstanding backs," Broyles says, Phillips, an All-America, wil' be the team's defensive leader, He was in on 100 tackles lasl season and added 17 more in the Cotton Bowl. Broyies says the 241-poum Phillips just has to be one o the top candidates for the Out land Award, given the nation's outstanding Interior lineman. Arkansai hai plenty of quality among its 21 returning letter men, but a better balance 1 conference will probably de mand outstanding efforts from tht sophomore*.
