THE BRAZOSPORT FAOfS nnd Brnenria County, Texas, Tueg., January 3, Hogs Go Back To Ozarks After Duke By GEORGE FERGUSON Facts Sports Editor DALLAS — A Williams twin, a lonesome end, a meek Arkansas defense late in the fourth quarter, and a fired up bun«i of football Blue Devils from North Carolina were important factors in Arkansas' loss to Duke in the Cotton Bowl here Monday afternoon. Duke edged Arkansas 7 to 6. The Razorhacks' Jarrel! Williams right half back, one of the Williams twrns playing for Arkansas was injured on the third play of the 25th annual Cotton Bowl Classic, played in the bright sunlight before 74,000 fans. Coach Frank Broyles of Arkansas said Jarrell's injury "changed our plans somewhat." Duke's All-American end, Tee Moorman, the Duke — lonesome end that Arkansas had been preparing all week to defense against, caught a pass from quarterback Don Altaian to score Duke's touchdown with 2 minutes and 45 seconds remaining in the game. Duke's score was the climax of a 73 yard drive in 18 plays, made possible by Arkansas' relaxing defense in what was otherwise a marvelous exhibition. The Blue Devils got all fired up at the beginning of the drive lor the winning touchdown and were able to complete several passes from Airman to Moorman. Arkansas' Harold Horton was attempting to fade Moorman but could not seem to stop him Iro.n catching the passes from Altaian. Duke's winning point on the Scoreboard came from the toe 31 208 pound Art Browning. The Hogs from the Ozarks pu on an excellent array ol footbal playing throughout the contest Left halfback Lance Alworth played an outstanding ball garni even though his fumble with two minutes and 10 seconds remaining in the game drowned the Hogs' chances for winning battle. The first quarter was strictly a defensive contest, plus a g o o c amount of just pure nip and tucl football. In the first period, Arkansas picked up one first down to Duke's two. Each team punted three times, each time they ha, the ball, and Duke led Arkansas in net yards from offense by a mere 5 yards, 31 to 26. Arkansas picked up the first first down of the game early the second quarter, but wer forced to kick after reaching th Duke 42 yard line. Also in the second quarter, Duke penetratec Arkansas territory once befor losing the ball on a fumble at th Hog three. Arkansas was in Duk territory three times :n the quar ter, to the Duke 14, 36 and 47. At halftime the score was tied at 0-0. In the first half fullback Paul Alberty was the leading rusher for Arkansas with a recor; of six carries for 23 yards net Left halfback Joel Arrmgton was tops for Duke with 5 carries o 14 net total. Arkansas' Georg McKinney attemsted 7 passes in the first half, completed three f. 47 yards and Altman attempted for Duke, completed four for total of 38 yards. One of the most beautiful plays by an individual in the game was with about three minutes remaining hi the third quarter, Alwcrrh backed up to punt was rushed by Duke, and while racing fo'.- ward at a fast clip, punted on the run to the Duke two. Duke was unable to move the ball to great advantage in two plays and kicked on the third down to Alworth on the Duke 49 yard line. Alworth, the Brookhaven (Miss.) Kid, twisted and squirmed ail the way for the 49 yards for a touchdown. This was Arkansas' only score in the affair with two minutes and 53 seconds left in the third quarter. Mickey CisselTs extra point kick was blocked and Arkansas was leading 6-0. The Hogs' lead apparently inspired Duke's Blue Devils, who turned on the steam hereafter to a fizzled Arkansas defense, and allowed Arkansas only seven plays arly in the final quarter. The climax of the Cotton Bo.vl ame actually came immediate^ ter the Duke touchdown. After uchdown, Duke kicked to Arkanas and Alworth took the kick in ie Arkansas 7, returned the ball i the Arkansas 32 yard lina, here he fumbled. The ball was 7-6 BRAZOSPORTS By GEORGE FERGUSON FACTS SPORTS EDITOR Faubus Thought About Guard DALLAS—The Arkansas Razor- that Governor Orval Faubus jcovered by Duke. Duke retained possession of the all for the remainder of the game, and as the final whistle ounded, the Blue Devils had the all on the Arkansas one yard line. Arkansas led Duke in all stalls- cs with the exception of yards gained passing. Duke had 93 'o ie Hogs' 71. Of course Duke lod n the Scoreboard 7—6. Downtown Dallas was quiet ;ain Monday night after two ights of merry making by all hose Hogs from Arkansas. Duke ook over with the merry making ast night. After the game Broyles of Aransas said "I was a little dis- ppointed in our offense — particularly in our passing game — nit then you've got to remember Duke played well." Said Duke coach Bill Murray: "It was truly a great victory for us." The sports writers on hand for he Cotton Bowl game selectee Lance Alworth of Arkansas as the most valuable back in the gams and Dvvight Bumgarner, Duke's eft tackle, as the best lineman Alworth carried 11 times for 33 yards net and returned a Duk' punt for 49 yards and the Hog score.

A few minutes before midnight on Sunday we finally spotted six- iiuiet people walk into the Baker lotel, Arkansas' headquarters, carrying Duke souvenir flags. 3thenvise, it was Arkansas all the way, keeping the downtown section and guests In the hotel 'n which we stayed up until the wee lours of the morning with their famous Arkansas yells. This was the second consecutive night for the excitement. Saturday night, no attempts were made to stop any of the wild New Year's eve celebrations. Buth nights Arkansas let it be known that they were here in force to win over Duke. Win lose or draw Duke had something wonderful to cheer about. It was Betty Johnson featured vocalist on the Jack Paar TV show appearing at the Statler Hotel. Betty is from Possum Walk N. C. At Saturday's sp o r t s writer's Hall of Fame Luncheon you couldn't tell players without a program-or the governor either for that matter. A man with a wide smile anc a flaming red shirt arrived late at the luncheon and didn't nave a ticket. It looked like for awhile might have to call out the National Guard again. "I'm Governor Faubus of Arkansas" he tcld the man at the door. 'Yeah I'm President Eisenhower" scowled the doorman. "But I am really Governor Faubus" Faubus pleaded. After Faubus was finally admitted the doorman had a face *o match the governor's shirt. Dallas has be e n well repre ented with sports writers since early Saturday also. Texas sports vriters from all over the sta:e vere on hand for the Hall if luncheon and a business meeting held Monday mornin».

Mrs. Broyles boarded a plane for Fs.y- etteville early Sunday and missed seeing the game. Late Sunday the daughter was reported to be doing fine. The Broyles have four other children all boys possibly future Razorbacks. By Associated Preii In the major bowl games Monday, it was a day of upsets all around. At Pasadena, Calif., the Washington Huskies, powered by quarterback Bob Schlorcdt, beat Minnesota 17-7, to register their second straight Rose Bowl victory. , In the Orange Bowl at Miami, Fla., Missouri stopped All- American Joo Bellino cold, allowing him four yards in eight carries, and defeated Navy 21-14. At New Orleans' Sugar Bowl, All-American Jake Glbbs scored two touchdowns to lead Mississippi to a 14-6 triumph over Rice and at Dallas Duke downed Arkansas 7 to 6. Ole Miss scored early in the first quarter and late in the game to win a 14-6 victory, but in between Billy Cox engineered a Rica attack that riddled the Southeastern Conference champs from Oxford Miss., but Rico could not come through for enough score to win. , Washington's remnr k n b 1 c Huskies unleashed a display of speed and fury in the first half of the Rose Bowl game, held off a determined second half challenge and rolled on to topple the national champions from Minnesota. Washington scored n field goal in the first quarter nnd two touchdowns In the second to lead Minnesota 17-0 at one point. The Orange Bowl was explosive all the way. Early in the game both teams came up with long touchdown productions. Thereafter, Missouri controlled the ball. John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. will not lack for a football when he reaches the age ol such play. A football for the President-Elect's son wns given Kennedy yesterday before the Navy-Missouri teams squared off In the Orange Bowl.
