(AP) - Arkansas Coach Duddy Wal« ler was still looking for his first Southwest Conference basketball victory on the road when his Razorbacks took the court against SMU at Dallas Satur* day night. With less than a minute to play the Razorbacks still had not secured the victory. Then sophomore Robert MeKenide stepped to the free throw line with five seconds left and dropped in two free throws to push the Razorbacks past the Mustangs 70-68. "Along about that time I didn't have any feeling," Waller said. "I'm probably a pessimist but I was trying to figure how we were going to get the ball and what we were going to do." Four days earlier the Razorbacks had knocked off TCU 6867 on a free throw by James Eldrldge with 10 seconds left. "I'd rather it be this way than lose," said Waller. "We've won two gamos at the free throw line but we almost lost the SMU game when we missed some free throws late In the game." Arkansas, which entertains Texas Tech tonight, is in a tie for second in the SWC with Texas. Both are 4-2 and Baylor is 5-1. "We'll play them one at a time and go from game to game," Waller said. "We've gained some confidence that we needed and that sure won't hurt us. When they walk on the floor now they feel like If things go right they can win." "I've talked with some of the other coaches and some of them feel 9-5 could tie," Waller said. "I'd sure take 10-4 right now." Both Eldrldge and McKenzie rank among the top ten scorers in the SWC and both are sophomores. "We didn't have any idea what to expect out of these kids," Waller said. "They've been progressing real good." Tonight's game completes the Porkers' first trip around the conference. Any element of surprise will be eliminated the sec- o'rtd'Yime around and the Razo© backs will .have to continue to improve to remain among the conference leaders since four of their final seven games are on the road.

Avery Brundage, president of; the tnternatHnal Olympic Com*; mlttee, heard the decision and' immediately called an emergen*, cy meeting for today of his 10-,' man executive board to discuss!, the problem, Earlier In the week, the Ski: Federation had said that trade"; marks would be barred from the Olympics and Brundage, a > disciple of complete amaterur-* ism in the Olympics, said that! any athlete breaking the rule', would be thrown out of the; Olympics. But about an hour later, the. Ski Federation, under pressure; from team captains, reversed itself and said It would allow' trade marks to be used. Rumors spread around Greno-, ble that It was possible that skiing events— instead of being: Olympic events—would be^ called world championships. ' In championships outside the,' Olympics, skiers are allowed to! use the names of manufacturers' on their skis without any prob-, lems. ; Brundage refused to comment and simply said: "we have oun meeting arranged and you must wait to see what the decisions; are." , At another meeting— called by" the Russians—Yuri Mashin, president of the Central Com-; mittee of Soviet Sports Delegations, told more than 100 news-; men preparing to cover the; games: "The Soviet sportsmen are profoundly disgusted by the" American aggression In.
