Sulphur Springs Cowboys and Colts to Clash Wins Two Games SWC Campaign . . . Aggies, Cougars to Clash By MIKE RABUN UPI Sports Writer Texas A&M and Houston are the kind of schools that produce a natural rivalry. The only trouble is that until now that rivalry has not been renewed very often. That has all changed, of course, with the entry of Houston into the Southwest Conference this year and the first meeting of the Cougars and the Aggies in league play comes about Saturday night on the humid astroturf of Rice Stadium A crowd of 70.000 is expected to cram in for the Cougars first SWC appearance in their home town — if not their home stadium. “I expect a super game,” said Houston coach Bill Yeoman. “It should be the kind of game you expect when neighbors get together.” It’s less than 100 miles from the center of one campus to the other, but the two teams have not met since 1964 when they ended a 14-year series. During Houston's campaign to enter the SWC, Texas A&M was one of the holdouts in the Cougars efforts to schedule conference clubs. The A&M-Houston affair will be the only conference game on the schedule this week while most of the rest of the league teams take themselves out of town. Texas Tech (1-0) will come back from a week off against New Mexico in Albuquerque and this one will be watched to see if the Red Raiders can put on as impressive a display as they did against Colorado two weeks ago. SMU (1-1) will go into the Dallas suburbs to meet North Texas Stat in Texas Stadium; Rice (1-0) takes its passing attack to LSU; TCU (0-2) will make another likely sacrificial trip to Nebraska; and Baylor (1-1) goes to Illinois. The 11th- ranked Arkansas Razorbacks (2-0 and winners of eight in a row) will be at home against Tulsa. Texas A&M carries a No. 9 rating this week and after wins over Virginia Tech and Kansas State the Aggies will be a heavy favorite against the Cougars. “But I know Houston will be a very emotional team for this one,” said A&M coach Emory Bellard. “Of course I think the Aggies will, too. “Their, quarterback (Danny Davis) is very dangerous. He scrambles well and has a strong arm. They have excellent receivers and they put a great deal of pressure on the perimenter of the defense Our defense will be severely tested. But A&M’s defense is used to being tested and used to being successful. The Aggies led the country in total defense last season and are back on top in the nationwide statistics after two games this season. Houston already has a conference victory in its sack, having upset the Baylor Bears on the opening weekend, 23-5. But last week the Cougars were the victim of a 49-14 lashing administered by Florida, which gained more than 600 yards. “Florida had a lot of good backs,” said Yeoman, who spent one year at Texas A&M before receiving an appointment to West Point in te mid 1940s. “But I think Texas A&M's Curtis Dickey is as good as anything Florida has ” Dickey, the prize freshman from Bryan, will make his first start at halfback this week. Dickey, teamed with fullback George Woodard, who gained 177 yards against Kansas State, give the Aggies a potent running attack. A&M will also start David Walker at quarterback. Walker came on to replace David Shipman last week with the Aggies trailing, 7-0, and quickly rallied A&M to a runaway win. The Sulphur Springs junior varsity and freshman football teams gained a bit of revenge for the Wildcats here Thursday night as they swept a football double header from Bonham's JV and frosh The Sulphur Springs frosh romped to a 36-6 win over the Bonham first year men and the Wildcats’ JV edged Bonham's Braves 21-14. Major League Standings By United Press International National League East W. L. Pet. GB Phils Drawing Nearer . Five is Magic Number Now By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer Five is the magic number for both Philadelphia and Kansas after the Phillies defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 7-3, Thursday night and the Royals lost to the Oakland A s, 8-1. Should the Phillies win five of their remaining 11 games they would finish the season with 97 victories—one more than the Pittsburgh Pirates can achieve if they win all nine of their remaining games. By winning five of their remaining nine games, the Royals would wind up with 93 victories—one more than the A’s would have if they won their last nine games. The difference is that the Phillies have no games left with the Pirates while the Royals must face Oakland three more times. And so the pennant races go into their final stages with the Phillies and Royals nearing FLOYD HAS A PAIR - Floyd Blair of Bonham manages to hold up 22 pounds of channel catfish caught at Lake Bonham, The largest one weighed 19 pounds and the other just four pounds. their pennant-clinchers and the New York Yankees stumbling at the finish line. The Yankees lost to the Baltimore Orioles, 21, Thursday night, for their fourth straight defeat but still have a magic number of three. Steve Carlton allowed seven hits in eight innings and raised his record to 19-6, with the ninth-inning relief help of Ron Reed, as the Phillies won their third game in a row. Carlton, a late-season candidate for Cy Young honors, struck out nine and walked three. “It looked like the way it was the first part of the season,” said Carlton, referring to the support he got from his teammates. “They are starting to play again like they know how ... it’s like old times ...” Tim McCarver’s two-run Hofheinz Sells Astrodome to 2 Corporations HOUSTON (UPI) - Judge Roy Hofheinz brought major league baseball to the South’s largest city with the dream of the first domed stadium. He convinced the major league owners Houston should have a team and he convinced the public the city should have the domed stadium. Hofheinz made additions to his sports domain — an amusement park and hotels all coming under the umbrella of Astrodomain. But Hofheinz’ organization started unraveling last year. He surrendered his dream Thursday by selling Astrodomain and the Houston Astros baseball team and relinquished control of the Astrodome to two lending corporations. T.H. Neyland, board chairman for Houston Sports Association, Inc., announced the purchase by General Electric Credit Corp. and Ford Motor Credit Corp. two of the creditors with whom Hofheinz refinanced his failing sports domain. Philadelphia Pittsburgh New York Chicago St. Louis Montreal homer was the big blow of a three-run fourth inning, which gave the Phillies a 4-0 lead. McCarver and four other players had two hits each as the Phillies dealt Andy Rasmussen his 12th loss. The Pirates remained six games behind the Pirates despite a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs, achieved when Ed Ott doubled in the winning run in the 10th inning. Reliever Dave Giusti won his fifth game while Darold Knowles suffered his seventh setback. Mike Torrez pitched a five- hitter for his seventh win in his last eight decisions as the proud A’s, five-time winners of the Western Division, cut the Royals’ lead to five games. The A’s were aided by eight walks, a hit batsman, three wild pitches and six stolen bases. The victory raised Torrez’ record to 15-11. "The last time we were running, pitching and hitting like this we won nine straight games,” said Manager Chuck Tanner of the A’s. “That’s what we aim to do now.” Ken Singleton singled home Paul Blair with the winning run in the ninth inning as the Orioles swept their four-game series with the Yankees Mike Flanagan pitched a six-hitter and struck out eight for his third win for the Orioles while Jim Hunter suffered his 15th loss against 16 victories for the Yankees.

With just two seconds left in 67 87 435 31 Mi the half Sulphur Springs st0pped the clock to try a field goal which was partially blocked. The ball fell into Welch’s arms and he hestitated for a few seconds and then headed for the sideline and picked up good blocks from his teammates and won the race to pay dirt. Bonham had taken an 8-0 lead on the first play of a second quarter on a 5-yard pass from Jim Dale to Northcutt and a 2-point conversion run by Milton Brown. Sulphur Springs knotted the count with 6:28 left in the half. Sulphur went ahead 15-14 after recovering a Bonham fumble on the 15-yard line. A short punt gave the visitors a scoring chance midway of the fourth quarter and a 1-yard quarterback sneak got the six points.
