Broyles Lauds Three Porker Running Backs Arkansas C o a c h, Frank Broyles praised three of his running hacks Tuesday as the Hogs finished preparations for Saturday's Red-White game at Little Rock. The three were Marsh White. Barnabas White and Holland Fuchs. The Porkers went through an extended goal-line scrimmage at the end of Tuesday's 2% hour workout. During that time, Barnabas White. Marsh White and Fuchs scored numerous times against the first and second defensive units. In addition, reserve quarterback Larry Brown and quarterbacks Scott Bull and Mark Miller connected for several touchdown passes. Miller quarterbacked the first five goal-line sbries. negotiating pay dirt on the first four. Marsh White blasted over from the two-yard line on the first scries and Teddy Barnes scored from the six on the second by juking Floyd Hogan. After Barnabas White scored from the eight, Miller bit tight end Doug Yoder in the right corner of the end zone for the fourth score. Linebacker Wayman Hawkins, the outstanding defensive player in *he drill, blunted the f i f t h try by forcing Miller into a forward lateral. Larry -Brown then directed the offense to two scores in two .tries. On the first, halfback · Barry Campbell crossed the goal line just before fumbling. Brown hit Mickey Billingsley for a scoring pass after Yoder took care of a safety blitz with a good block. Scott Bull continued the pattern of success by quarter- .backing three scores in three assaults. Alan Watson got the first, and Bull hit Yoder for the second. Fuchs got the third on a third-and-eight trap plav that fooled the defense. - Miller then returned to lead x three more scoring thrusts After Garnett Smith tallied on fourth and inches. Marsh White scored from the eight-yard line by bowling over three defenders. Barnabas White also blasted in on fourth and one. : Brown fumbled on the next series, but the drill concluded with six more scores for a total of 18 touchdowns in 20 attempts. Fuchs scored on a sweep and another trap, Brown scored on two sweeps, J. R. Ross wiggled in from the five and Brown hit Yoder in the corner of the end zone again. In fairness to the defense Broyles noted that it was "experimenting with a few things on the goal line, for purposes of summer study." Broyles added that Ivan Jordan and Brison Manor bad outstanding performances in the Red-White gaine Saturday, and that "Tommy Harris played the best since he's been here."

(AP) - Arkansas Tech signed Hal Crafton of Conway to an Arkansas In- ercollegiate Conference basketball letter of intent here Tuesday. Crafton, 6-foot-l, scored 376 oints during his senior year at Conway High School for a 15.1 =eason average. He led the Warnpus Cats to be Class AAA state basketball itle this year. Craflon was twice named an All-Stater. ball Association title. However, Boston Coach Tom my Heinsohn guardedly warnei his charges against looking be yond the Knicks, noting: "We still have to win one more ii their series." The Knicks were put on th brink of elimination in a 98-9 loss in the fourth game in Ne\ York Sunday. Things don't loo] much brighter for them, a! though the record shows tha the visiting team has won the last three games in the Easteri Division final playoff. MUST WIN New York is faced with a "must win" situation -- fo three games in a row. And nc one in the game thinks thu Knicks can win three in a row from Boston. The Celtics won five of seven regular season en counters before taking com mand in the playoffs. "We know what we have to do," New York super star Wai Frazier said. "We're not con ceding anything. If we play as well as we did at home Sunday we can win." The Knicks, though, jus don't appear to have the muscle or the speed to cope with the Celtics. Boston captain John Havlicek is haying a bal as the team's leading scorer Dave Cowens. Paul Silas Co are dominating the boards. With center Willis Reed and veteran forward Dave DeBuss chere hurting, the Knicks hard ly resemble the same team which won the NBA title by de feating Los Angeles after elimi rating Boston in seven games last year.
