The View from Her* ED HAYES Thursday, Bob and You THERE IS NO ONE-I SAID NO ONE-WHO HAS MORE Inside information on the inside workings of the complete University of Arkansas athletic situation. I said it and I'm glad and I do not expect to be challenged. As sports information director, Bob Cheyne has a built- in intercom between UA coaches, Razorbacks and the public. In short, he's a walking walkie-talkie. It's mildly daring to state that Bob knows as much about UA football as-well, as Frank Himself Broyles. This is pointedly significant for football followers in this neighborhood, what with the Razorbacks in the swing of spring football and Bob's scheduled visit to Blytheville Thursday night. Thursday is the night of the Blytheville High all-sports banquet and you're invited. * * * I feel sure Cheyne will be willing to answer any questions about progress of football at Fayetteville-as if it were Frank himself standing up there in front of the assembly in the Junior High cafetorium. It's been said that Cheyne doubles as Frank's speech- writer but I believe that's exaggeration. The head coach isn't that eloquent. He's a captivating speaker but he does it with personality. You can ask Broyles what he thinks of ole Bub Gutz who played at your town's school, the former fullback who's now in the line at UA, and he'll reply: "Real good. We feel '-he'll make us a real fine football player." And he'll make it sound as though the words were placed in his mouth by Peter Roget himself. * * * Razorback athletics is Cheyne's life. He couldn't get^a job at any other school. No one would hire him. They'd know his heart wouldn't be in it. Bob is completing his 19th year as the sports bugle of UA. Which makes him dean of his peers In the Southwest BOB (UA) CHEYNE Conference. II he fails to win a national award foi 1 his football brochure—which could happen one of these years— they'll think he's slipping, slowing down. A graduate of UA, naturally, he wrote sports for two daily newspapers. Returning for some graduate work, he secured the sports publicity position and has held it since, working 187 consecutive football games and more than 425 basketball scuffles. * * * Next he was placed behind a microphone to announce the good tidings of Razorback accomplishments on the battlefields, broadcasting across a broad network. Four times he was honored as sportscaster of the year hi Arkansas. Last year, in order to better handle the increasing demands of the people in the press boxes at Fayetteville and Li'l Rock, he turned the microphone over to someone else. And some of the excitement of Razorback football went with him. He kept his tonsils in shape this winter, though, during the basketball season. He was one of the state tournament broadcasters. He made a free throw sound as exciting as Walt Hampton or John Linck dunking the bait ic * * Cheyne is married. The Cheynes have three children! Cathy, 19 (a student at UA, naturally); Bob, 15; and Gary, 12. Daddy Cheyne originated the Razorback Hall of Fame. In 1950 he founded Dad's Day at UA. This year he and George Cole were re-elected to positions in the national Football Hall of Fame. Cole, the assistant athletic director, is to continue of the national Honors Court, making final decisions; and Cheyne is to continue on the national screening committee, recommending top.nominees to the.Honors Court. .*...* * Get the picture that here's a guy who does his work well and loves every statistic he runs up? This, then, is the guest speaker at the 7:30 banquet here Thursday night. Should be a thoroughly enjoyable evening for Bob and his wife, the Chickasaws to be honored, and guests. Tickets cost $2.

The Pirates were supposed to play the Cubs again today, but the Cub management, perhaps out of kindness, came up with possibly the earliest postponement in baseball history, calling the game in the seventh inning Sunday because of snow forecast for today. * * * Sunday's game was played In 37-degree weather and rookie Norm Gigon's homer accounted for three Chicago runs. The Cubs scored four unearned runs in the fourth Inning, with Adolfo Phillips singling home two of them. Elsewhere In the National (League, Philadelphia won a pair from New York 10-6 and 3-1- Cincinnati took Houston 5-3, Los Angeles bombed St. Louis 9-3 and a doubleheader between Atlanta and San Francisco was rained out. * * * Donn Clendenon and Roberto Clemete hit homers for the Pirates, but Cub starter Ferguson Jenkins settled down to his second victory, striking out 10. BOSOX LOSf: IT'S JAKE WITH YANKS Chi Leaves Pirates Cold By RON RAPOPORT Associated Press Sports Writer The Pittsburgh Pirates discovered that Chicago left them cold and are happily leaving town a little ahead of schedule, no doubt relieved that neither the Cubs nor the Mets appear on their schedule for a while. In their first nine games, the Pirates, everybody's preseason favorites to win the National League pennant, have faced only New York and Chicago, the tailenders last season. The Pirates, now move on to a series with front running Philadelphia and St. Louis, hoping to fare better than they did against the doormats. Rich Allen hit a pair of home runs, one in each of the Phillies' victories and Dick Ellsworth gave just seven hits to the Mets in his first appearance of the season in the nightcap. Phil Linz' two-run double in the eighth inning of the first game put the Phils ahead for good. Milt Pappas held off the Astros, though he needed late-inning help from Ted Abernathy. The Reds got five straight hits in the first before a man was put out, Deron Johnson's single driving in two runs. Ron Davis hit a three-run homer for Houston. Ron Fairly drove In five runs for the Dodgers with a double and the club's first homer of the season. Claude Osteen kept the Cards in tow on 10 hits, picking up his second victory in three outings. Lou Brock continued his torrid hitting pace with three hits for the Cardinals. AM&N Flashy State Miler Cuts Mark LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP)—Arkansas AM&N's mile relay team and Harding's Jim Crawford set two Arkansas records in the Kansas Relays Saturday. AM&N clipped off a 8:07.5 in the mile relay, bettering the relays' record of 3:09.2 set by Texas Southern in 1963. The best time previously recorded by an Arkansas team was 3:07.8, by AM&N earlier in the season. The relay team was composed of Henry Smothers. Henry Francis, Walter Smith and Elbert Stinson. * * * Crawford lowered the Arkansas record by one tenth of a second with his 4:04.2 time in the mile run. Crawford ran 4:04.3 in the Texas Relays. He was beaten Saturday by world recorder Jim Ryun (3:54.7) and Richard Romo of Texas (4:02.6). AM&N also finished second to Texas Southern in both the shorter relays. Texas Southern ran the 440-yard relay in 40.0 and the 88-yard relay in 1:22.8, both meet records. AM&N was clocked in 4.7 and 1:25.3. w - . 12 innings and 2-1; Baltimore Fran]c Ro binson hit his second splita twin bill with Kansas homer of the two bill for Balti- City, winning the opener 5-2 be- more, fore bowing 8-7, Minnesota topped Detroit 4-2 and Washington whipped Chicago 5-1.

Not with Elston Howard and Al Downing around to divide the job. The New York batterymen sparkled in relief roles Sunday — Howard with a decisive pinch-hit double and Downing with a near-perfect pitching performance — as the Yankees came from behind to stun the Red Sox 7-5. Howard, whose two-out single in the ninth inning ruined Boston rookie Bill Rohr's no-tlit bid 10 days ago, capped a five-run go-ahead rally in the fifth with his two-run double — the Yankees' first extra-base hit in seven games. * * * Downing came out of the hull- pen with New York trailing 5-1 in the fourth and allowed just one hit the rest of the way for his second victory in two relief appearances — both against Boston. The little left-hander blanked the Red Sox over the final five innings in last Sunday's 18-inning marathon, won by the Yankees 7-6. 'He may be ready to put everything together," Manager Ralph .Houk said of. the 25-year- old strikeout artist who appears to be rebounding from two straight losing seasons. Downing fanned seven Boston hitters Sunday. In other American League action, California moved into first place by sweeping a Bou- bleheader from Cleveland, 9-6 in *e Senators infant to stay. third run home before Howard, who had come through wifii a shutout-breaking single off Rohr in the Red Sox' 6-1 victory Saturday, looped a double in to right center. The two-base hit, wMch snapped an extra-base famine of 67 2-3 innings for the one-time Bombers, gave Downing a 6-5 lead. Gibbs' sacrifice fly in the eighth produced an insurance run the new relief ace hardly needed. * * * The Angels completed their sweep at Cleveland with an unearned run in the ninth inning of he nightcap, pinch runner Mar- iellino Lopez scoring on third baseman Max Alvis' wild throw o the plate. Reliever Jack Kraick was charged with the loss, lis second setback of the afternoon. Kralick departed with the score tied 6-6, two on and one out in the 12th inning of ttie opener. Bobby Knoop, Jose Cardenal and Paul Schaal then raked Dick Radatz for run-scoring singles. Jimmie Hall had singled home the tying run for California in tlie seventh.

' "A lot of players are afraid to try to be good putters," he told the press:room Sunday after he had slammed into first place at 54 holes with 23-seven under par. . "They want to be known as hitters and neglect putting. 1 believe that since putting is the most important thing In golf, one should concentrate on that I practice a lot."
