', But in only one instance do I teams with perfect records meet i each other -> Austin Reagan at San Antonio Brackchridge in Class AAAA—and that means there can be only three at 'the . most left with undefeated, untied slates in that class when the firing is over Saturday night. Just two teams are undefeated and untied in Class AAA. where El Canipo risks its unsullied rec- 1 ord against twice-beaten, once, tied Silsbee. and Seguin throws an 11-0 mark on die line against | Donna, which also has lost twice. I The big game, however, cornes I in Class AAAA where Abilene Cooper, unbeaten and untied, j rolls against Amarillo Tascosa, 1 a four-lime loser. While Ihe Tas- 1 cosa record isn'l good, this learn has been coming on like Ihe wind of lale and Cooper should ! be worried about playing the ; Panhandle powerhouse on its | own field al Amarillo Saturday ' afternoon. Adams Tries Richardson Another unbeaten, unlied team goes against one that arrived late when Dallas Adams, with Scolty Miles passing high, wide and handsome, hits twice-beaten Richardson at Dallas Friday night. The winner will meet the Coopcr-Tascosa victor in the semifinals. The other AAAA game, setting up the Reagan-Brackcnridgc foe. matches Houston Bellaire with Beaumont llcbert at Beaumont Saturday night. The Reagan - Brackenridge clash Is Friday niglil. Class AAA also has a split schedule with two gamas Friday night and two Saturday. The headline! 1 throws Dumas against Brownwood at Amarillo Saturday night. It is the clash of two former champions who have had some ups and downs getting to the quarterfinals. McKinncy. with only a tic to mar its record, plays Palestine at Arlington Friday'night at the same lime that unbeaten, untied Seguin is clashing with Donna at Alice. El Campo Meets Silsbee BOB ROTHE , . . two-way tackle DOUG STRECKERT , .offensive tackle Sports Briefs MEXICO CITY (AP) - Expansion was expected to be the big subject today when American and National League club owners started their sessions during the 66th winter baseball meetings. The owners opened the day with a joint meeting presided over by Commissioner William D. Eckert, then split into league meetings which continue through Friday. They arc to end the discussions with another joint meeting Saturday. Expansion was expected to be the top subject for both leagues. The American League already has decided to expand to 12 teams in 1969 with the addition of Seattle and a replacement for the Kansas City Athletics, who moved' to Oakland. But it has not yet been decided which interested parties will get the Seattle and Kansas City fran-j chises or how the teams will be stocked, CITY KEG CHART Last week's results at Mer-' cury Lanes: YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN —Paul Sullivan 487-198; David Shoemaker 472-179; Larry Cline 453-176; Brenda Blanton 341-164.

National League, has said his : circuit probably will not entertain any serious expansion plans | | for 1969 and take a cautious ap- ! I proach toward the subject. MIAMI, Fla.

CLASS AA Friday night — Phillips over NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Amateur Athletic Union is pondering Ihe possibilily lhat the i United States and Russia may resume dual sports event rivalry. David A, Matlin, AAU president, said a proposition had been received from Russia for the repayment by Russia, over a period of years, of the some S125.000 in losses to the United Slates due to cancellation of the 1966 dual track meet at Los Angeles, Russia said its athletes backed out of the meet as a protest against U.S. involvement in the Vietnam war. Matljn said Ihe situation will be taken up by various AAU committees in track and field,! swimming, basketball, wrestling, boxing, gymnastics and other sports. The AAU's 80th annual convention here ends Saturday, Utah Apologizes For Damp Field SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The University of Utah has apologized to Texas at El Paso for the watering of the field prior to last Saturday's game between the Utes and the pass-happy Miners, The Miners, who lead the na- lion in passing wilh 301-1-yard average, overcame the sloppy field and passed their way to a 28-8 victory. The Utes ended the season 3-7' and UTEP 6-2-1. UTEP coach Bobby Dobbs complained after the game of "terrible" playing conditions. A Utah athletic department statement put the responsibility on head coach Mike Giddijigs, who was quoted earlier by Salt Lake Tribune sports editor John Mooney as saying, "1 don't know who ordered the field, watered, I don't know who even handles the sprinkling- of the field."

Brownwood High School football coach Gordon Wood can move into a class by himself if his Lions can clear a big hurdle (Dumas) al Amarillo Saturday and then roll on to another state championship. ! No coach in Texas high school j football history has captured I five state championships. Wood, i Oscar's Skipper I Favors Frazier ! LOUISVILLE, Ky. (APy ! Oscar Bonavena fights Jimmy Ellis in a semifinal bout of the World Boxing Association's heavyweight tournament Saturday, but .Bonavena's manager says the real man to. beat for the championship is Joe Frazier. Frazier, the unbeaten Philadelphia heavyweight, elected to stay out of the WBA's eight-man tournament to select a successor for deposed champion Cassius Clay. "Frazier is Ihe mosl polished fighter around,." said Dr. Marvin Goldberg; Bonavena's manager. "He's a busy fighter and he never stops coming at you but Oscar would still beat him because of his superior strength," voted into the Texas High School j Coaches Association's Hall of Honor last summer, has the op- porlunily lo win his fifth crown this season. WOOD. THE LATE Paul Tyson of Waco and the retired Joe Golding of Wichita Falls are the | only coaches ever to win four! titles, Tyson won his crowns in J 1922-25-26-27 al Waco while Gold- i ing, currently athletic director | of Wichita Falls schools, \von the big ones in 1949-50-58-61. Wood has divided his titles betvveen Stamtord and Brownwood, winning back-lo-back crowns at Stamford in 1955-56 and at Brownwood in 1960-65, His current Brownwood team has been on a rampage of late, outscoring the opposition 165-0 over a four-game .span. If there's one big reason for Brownwood's charge down the stretch it has lo be just about the most improved defense in this part of the country. WOOD MUST HAVE had his doubts about the defensive crew earlier this year, especially after they coughed up something like 800 total yards in back-to- back games with Abilene Cooper and Breckenridge. But the Lions came on strong and right now the defense appears to be at the top of its game, SUckouls have been middle guard Mike Fuller, ends Kenny Thomas and Joe McCluskey, tackle Bob Rothe, cornerback panion Smith and halfbacks Edward Robinson and Lane Bowen who have accounted for most of the team's 19 pass interceptions. Junior Ricky Foster and senior Mike Davidson have developed into top-flight operatives along Ihe iront wall and Glenn Williamson has been a hard- nosed performer at cornerback and end. WOOP WAS shopping for line- backers in pre - season and sophomore Ricky Stokes and seniors Robert Smith and Harold Ephriam have come through in grand slyle. Stokes and Ephriam were the early-season discoveries, while Smith, a topflight offensive guard, was already rated a proven hand at backing the line. An underrated offensive line has also played a part in the title drive. A crisp ground attack featuring nothing fancy has allowed Wood lo keep his offense under wraps from scouts the last two weeks. AND THE KEY to the overland success has been the fine blocking up front from tackles Doug S t r e c k c r I and Rothe, guards Robert Smith and Thomas and Fuller at center. The Lions worked out in sunshine for the first time this week .Wednesday and Wood made the most of it -by!-, taking close looks at both the offense and defense. A similar drill was on tap today. The Lions leave aboul noon Friday for Lubbock where they will -stage a light workout and stay overnight. Young Aerial Team Fuels Card Affack ST. LOUIS (AP) — If youth, means anything, the Jim Hart- to-Dave Williams passing combination should be a vilal parlj of the St. Louis Cardinals of-! fense for years to come. Much has been written about the rapid development of the 23- year-old Hart into a starting quarterback in the National Football League. In his second year as a pro, Hart has completed 146-of-309 passes for 15 touchdowns. And one of the young quarterback's favorite targets is the speedy Williams, who was the team's No, 1 draft choice this year after a brilliant collegiate career at Washington. in 11 games, Williams has caught 23 passes for 367 yards and a le-yards-per-calch average. Five limes he has scored touchdowns, including two agajnsl champion Green Bay on Oct. 30 when the Cardinals lost 31-23, Williams is the first to admit that stepping into the offensive unit of an NFL. team is an awe- task. Catching a few touchdown passes is good for the confidence, Williams continued, adding with a grin: "But just when you think you know a lot, along comes a game like the one against the (Chicago) Bears and you feel like an idiot." The Bears soundly whipped the Cardinals and Williams failed to catch a pass. As a mailer of facl, the rugged Chicago defense limited St. Louis to only 14 completions in 42 attempts and Bear defenders intercepted seven. Last week in a 46-21 loss to Dallas, Williams caught two passes, including a 36-yard touchdown toss. "With each game," the blond speedster explained, "you see just how much more there is to learn." The Cardinals, after a fast start, have dropped to, a 5-5-1 record and third place in the Eastern Conference's four-team Century division. , IPH' ™ H\™ m^ * * - ^^ft -;cf ,-••'-•« - ^; ^^ iOCIATED PRESS 'nothing wrong with ms.° By tm ASSOCIATED PRESS -anything' wrong with ons of (he National this toe ,they njejrrily the seventh, straight victory for §an Frsneisco and the Warners within game tf j&eJirst-plaee § tiwto ta tb9 Wsrtwo Bi Vpwd 'm % &$m mm Oscar- R 5, New Yttlt scored, §, 0ioeip§y .and. fietrolt.
