(AP Wirephoto) Court Battle Could Result From NBA-ABA All-Star Court Game NEW YORK (AP) -- A court battle may result from efforts by the rival National and American Basketball Associations to block an unsanctioned Porks Conduct Final Regular Spring Drills The Arkansas Hazorbacks went through their final regular spring football practice Thursday in preparation for Saturday's Red-White intrasquad clash at Little Rock. The game gets under way at 7:30 p.m. at War Memorial Stadium. The Red team and the White team battled to a 16-16 tie last week at Fayetteville. Coach Frank Bcoyles said his staff would be checking for correction of mistakes made in the first game. "We're hoping to see improvement of our mistakes, especially a lot of improvements in the younger players in a g a m e-like situation," said Broyles. He said there had been no '. player change, but light end ', Danny Crawford and fullback Don Fuicher mignt not play Satturday. Both players have received minor muscle pulls. May 18 All-Star game involving 22 of the lop players -- 11 from each league. Commissioners Walter Kennedy of the NBA and Mike Storen of the ABA said Thursday they would attempt to block the game, set for the 12,046-seat Civic Center in Providence, R.I. The game, sponsored by the NBA and ABA players associations, is to be shown nationally on ABC TV's Wide World of Sports. NBA OPPOSED "The National Basketball Association vigorously opposes any game or national telecast promoted by the NBA Players Association." said Kennedy. He indicated that league officials were looking into the possibility of taking legal action. "We are notifying our players lation of their contracts," said Storen. Adding that ABA owners supported him 100 per cent, Storen said he might seek a court injunction to prevent the game. Television receipts from the game, the third such unofficial contest since 1971, are to go to the players associations to support the pension and injury funds. DONATIONS Gate receipts are to be donated to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the United Negro College Fund and the Edwin Gould Services for Children. The two 11-man official rosters reflect a poll of NBA and ABA players to select the top athletes. Only center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar of the Milwaukee- Bucks declined to play due to a prior committment. NFL Installs Sweeping Grid Rule Changes NEW YORK (AP) -- Faced with increasing criticism that i!s game had become dull, the National Football League has struck back with the the most sweeping set of rule changes for professional football in 40 ye, vs. "It's an exciting package," said Commissioner Pete Rozelle, unveiling the changes t h a t are designed to open up offenses and reduce the ever- increasing roll field goals have played in the pro game recently. Besides introducing a 15-miii- utc sudden death overtime period to settle ties, the NFL moved the goal posts lo the enti line meaning that field goal kickers will have to boot those three- pointers 10 yards farther than they have been. Also, missed field goals will return the ball to the line of scrimmage or 20- yard line, which ever is farther from the goal line. RECEIVER PROTECTION Other changes also were adopted to protect wide receivers from the downfield battering they have been exposed to for offensive holding, tripping and illegal use of hands from 15 yards to 10 yards, and making back blocks that have caused many injuries. Not since 1933 when the league moved to allow forward passing from anywhere behind the line of scrimmage have such widespread alterations been made in the spoil. That was the same year the goal posts were moved from the back of the end zone to the goal line to encourage field goal kicking. WAY BACK WHEN "But in those days, guys weren't kicking 55-yard field goals," noted Jim Kensil. executive director of the NFL. Field goal kickers reacted predictably. They are less than thrilled with the changes. "These changes are going to make t h e game even more conservative than it is now," said Miami's Garo Yepremian. "Moving the goal posts to the back of the end zone is one of the worst rules they could possibly have put in. Despite Early Stumble Judger Fares Well In Derby Prep LEXINGTON, Ky.

The Razorbacks beat ORU 6-3 and advanced to 22-4 for the year. "This is the first time we've ever beaten ORU twice in one season," said Arkansas Coach Jeff Cook. The Titans aren't quite as strong this year as in past seasons, but still boast a 22-12 record. Arkansas led 4-2 at the end of singles play, but Gool and Toncic began the doubles by breaking Sakey's service in the first game. Vogl responded with a series of backhand winners that keyed wins in the next three games. The ORU duo broke Sakey a 'second time, however, and sent the set to Arkansas Sweeps Past ORU Tennis Team To Up Record To 22-4 For The Season TL Leaders Snap Off Victories By The Associated Press Ninth-inning dramatics highlighted Texas League victories Thursday night by division leaders Arkansas and San Antonio. San Antonio maintained its one-game lead in the West over Midland with a 4-2 victory over El Paso as Gary Ratliff knocked a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth. Arkansas, which shares the East lead with Victoria, won 4-3 as Rudy Kinnard hit a run-scoring double in the ninth that gave the Travelers a three- game sweep against Shreyeport. In other games, Victoria beat Alexandria 4-2 and Midland bombed Amarillo 13-3. San Antonio trailed 2-0 going into the bottom of the eighth inning and El Paso lefthander Sid Monge was breezing along. But three Diablos errors and f o u r San Antonio stolen bases led to two runs in the eighth before Ratliff's game-winning blow. a tiebreaker. The Razorback pair jumped ahead on a topspin crosscourt backhand by Vogl. and won the tiebreaker 5-3 with three consecutive volleys. They won the second set more comfortably, 6-3. "We hit the best returns we've ever hit in the first set," said Sakey, "but I just couldn't serve. That's the first time I've lost my service twice in a row in doubles all year." Sakey and Vogl are now 21-1 for the year, having lost only to Mike Collins and S t e v e Bailey of Oklahoma Slate- "Our whole team was off that day, and their whole team was on," said Vogl. The Arkansas twosome has since avenged that loss. Tom Grisak and Bruce Clark heat Steve Gallagher and Glenn Stipe 6-4. 7-5 in the number three doubles match, but George Okalidis and Jeff Williams spilled Joe Hickey and Randy Jackson at number two in the final match completed, 7-5, 6-7, 7-6.
