(AP) - The Miami Hurricanes, who usually rely on a brawling defense, finally found a scoring punch Friday night against Pittsburgh, trampling a weak Panther team, 38-14. Quarterback Bill Miller, sidelined two games back because his wild passing was giving Coach Charlie Tale a bad case of nerves, came off the bench and probably won his job back with * sterling performance. Miller hit 13 of 16 passes tor 195 yards, threw for one touchdown, ran for another and allowed no interceptions in two quarters of work. When he turned the job back to David Olivo, the score was 31-0. A * * "This is tiie first game since Colorado that we didn't have to sweat right down to the wire," He regained his confidence and poise." Scoring only one touchdown to each of the last five games, Miami still managed to beat fifth- ranked Southern California and then undefeated Georgia. And all the credit belonged to one ot the country's finest defensive units. And the defense again was impregnable against Pitt, until Tate dipped into his reserves didn't have much back there, i faced Big Ten rival Indiana. awcai iigiii uuwn tu me wucj icue ut^pcu imv ma *^.u\**»ou said Tate.

"1 can hit Clay and I can take him out with either hand," said the 33-year-old challenger who wrapped up his training with a light workout Friday. "Clay's fast, but I can move with him," added Williams. I can jab and also hook off the jab. I can hit with either hand." Williams may be prompted in his optimism by his peppery manager, Hugh Benbow, who has been conducting a verba" ence with a 2-0 record, but the Rebels must face the two most | w i(h a whi ~ h h highly regarded league teams | h ft box Oyf ' fice Arlrancae RlatA anrt T.amar . .. , . . . -Arkansas State and Lamar Tech.

Osceola High's football Seminoles played like champions last night in their 1966 finale. In fact they looked more like champions than they have all, year in whipping Gosnell's Pirates 34-12 In Osceola Osceola previously had clinched the 2-A crown. In other prep action last night, Wilson's Bulldogs edged Hughes 14-13; Shawnee slugged Earle 33-6; and Caruthersville surrendered to Kennett 27-7. Osceola played a good game against Osceola but the Pirates were up against a determined band of Seminoles. The Bucs couldn't set a a guard and monster man Fred tra point didn't loom too big 6 ' _i il-_ 1! Hendnx. Fred has made a great comeback after absorbing a broken When they did, Osceola quarterback Phillip Morrow went boom- boom and zoom-zoom in the air. The tricky, pucky quarterback set a new school record with his scoring passes. Three went for touchdowns and that put him at 24 for one season, ahead of the late Ray Mann Jr. Barry Phillips peeled off the first two Osceola touchdowns. He ran eight yards in the first first quarter, then snarled one of Morrow's aerials, a 20-yard- er, in the second period. And Phillips had to run 10 yards of that on a tight rope. * * * Gosnell pushed right back into the picture here with a TD, uarterback Craig Pierce heav- ng to Mack Warner for eight ards. But before the half terminated. Osceola had struck gain. Morrow to Larry Gladden with a picture-perfect pass. The play measured about 40 'ards, Gladden running the final 5. Morrow kicked the extra po- nts and it was 20-6. The Seminoles sacked two more touchdowns In the third quarter, Ronnie Curlwright running five yards, and Teddy Prutt catching a Morrow flip of 20 yards. Pruitt tacked on five nore yards as he raced into the end zone. And Morrow pinned up two more extra-point boots. Pierce sailed his second TD or Gosnell, clicking In the ourth quarter with Chuck Gentry. » * * In all, It was quite a successful Moms' Night for Osceola. Singled out for top praise were Osceolans Larry Poynor, defense, collarbone on opening day of hitting practice. Curtwright, Phillips and Mule Bennett ran well for the winners. Osceola coach Howard Cissell said he was very impressed with the play of J. A. Smith's Gosnell boys. "They were very much improved over last year," he said. "Our experience more than anything else told the story in the second half." Osceola finished with a 9-1 record, Gosnell 5-6. * * Billy Wayne Bussey's extra- point'kicking told the story at Wilson even though David McCullar's Bulldogs charged to a 14-0 lead in the third quarter. Larry Stewart, sophomore halfback, posted the first six- pointer fo rthe host Bulldogs scoring in the first quarter on a 50-yarti pass play from Danny Cissell. ' Bussey's blast made it 7-0 and that's the way she read at half- ime. The combo of Cissell-to- lewart was successful in the hird quarter also.

A prune source of concern has been the 'ticket scalper". In a continuing effort to jrack down of these violations, the UofA athletic department is working closely with state and local law enforcement officials to bring ticket scalping to an end, In line with this strict enforcement of an Arkansas state law, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney William R.

However, Hughes ran for two TDs in the fourth quarter and the extra-point attempt after the first failed on the ground as the Bulldog goal-line defense dug in. * * * Jerry Rowsey was Wilson's tackling leader. He played a Sremendous game. Backs Lynn Smith, Terry Warhurst and Bill Bussey, of course, delivered vital contributions. Wilson thundered to the Hughes six-inch line at the end but an in-motion penalty killed the drive. Nevertheless, the Bulldogs had broken their five-game losing streak and still managed a respectable 5-6 season record. The game also vaulted the Bulldogs into a final third-place tie with Luxora in 3-B. Shawnee kept Earle from advancing into a three-way tie for third when the Indians blasted the invading Earle Bulldogs.

The Big Cat was a tough customer in the late fifties and the early sixties. His insides were ripped up by a pistol inflicted wound during a scuffle with a highway patrolman on Nov. 30, 1964 and lidw he even recbvered is an amazing comeback in itself. The .S slug still Is somewhere in Williams' body but the strapping challenger says it doesn't bother him and that he's as fit as ever. He returned to the ring on Feb. and in four fights of his comeback has beaten four nobodies. He knocked out Ben Black in one, outpointed Mel Turnhow and Sonny Moore in 10 rounders and stopped Tod Herring in three. The opponents are in the same class with Candy McDaniels, Babby Booze, and Graveyard Walters, characters he stiffened in the early fities when he was building up a at knockout record.
