Grant Hall SPORTS SECTION C FAYETTEVILU, ARKANSAS, SUNDAY, MAY 19, 1974 Paul White, Marvin Delph Make Arkansas Fans Happy With the signings this week of Paul White and Marvin Delph to national letters of intent, the University of Arkansas has enhanced its athletic, reputation in three sports: White of Russellville is a 6-6, 270-pound offensive lineman and the nation's leading high school shot putter; Delph is a 6-4 basketball wizard from Conway who received letters from 150 colleges. Arkansas hasn't always won the recruiting contests for its native blue chippers in recent years. For one reason o ranother, stars such as Karl Salb, Jackie Ridgle, Robert Lee Steward, Walter Rowan, Major Jones, Dexter Reed, Phillip Dokes and James White have gone elsewhere. For a time, it appeared that Delph and White would join that list. That they didn't is probably the result of the U of A athletic department's accelerated efforts to upgrade in all sports. Those efforts are clearly visible to prospects, what with the current activity toward better facilities in football, basketball, track and baseball. "At first," said Delph, "I definitely wanted to go out of state. But 1 was very much impressed with Coach (Eddie) Sutton and Coach (Pat) Foster. They convinced me that Arkansas can have a good team, and that I can get national exposure." Marvin picked the Razorbacks over a field of contenders which he had narrowed to Oklahoma, Tennessee and Arkansas State. White had to decide between a track scholarship to Kansas State, where he could also play football, and a football agreement with Arkansas, where he could also participate in track. He opted for the latter situation, after "Coach Broyles told me he wouldn't let me come unless I threw the shot every spring." Paul added, "I'm not sure, but I think he was joking." Why Not A Trim 270? This isn't the first time White has weighed 270, but he notes, "Before, I was a chubby 270. Now I'm a more solid 270. My goal is to be a trim 270." Toward that end, he has planned a summer of workouts which will be geared toward track in June and football in July. On June 22, he will compete in the Golden West Relays in Sacramento, Calif., the nation's premier high'school track meet. "Karl Salb had his best shot put there, a 69-6," said White. vSalb's best previous throw had been 65-8V4, which stood as the Arkansas record until White achieved 65-10% on his last throw in the recent Meet of Champions. "I had thrown 67 feet four times in practice, two days before the meet," said Paul. "But under tho circumstances, I was satisfied just to get the record." He had missed Salb's mark by three quarters of an inch in the state AAA meet the week before. White hopes to be invited to the junior men's AAU meet at Gainesville, Fla., the last week of June. The qualifying standards are 64 feet for the 12-pound shot and 54-6 for the 16-pound ball. Paul has thrown the 16-pounder 58 feet in practice, and would love to try it at Gainesville. The top two finishers will be eligible for a three-week tour of Russia, Poland and West Germany. Sometime in June, Paul will begin working out with Ricky Dixon, his Russellville teammate who has signed an agreement with Arkansas Tech. Their common objective will be to get in shape for the Arkansas All-Star football game on August 10. While White is doing that, Delph will be getting another dose of city basketball. In past summers, Marvelous Marvin has matriculated on the city playgrounds of Detroit and Kansas City. He stayed with an uncle in Detroit, where on occasion he found himself going up against the likes of Dave Ring and Bob Lanier. At Kansas City, Marvin stayed with an aunt. "I played against some rookies for the Kansas City-Omaha team," he said, "but you probably haven't heard of them. I never had." Likes Bill Walton's Emotion Delph pulled for the Milwaukee Bucks in the recent NBA championship series. "1 wanted to see Oscar go out a winner," he explained. "But Boston has a great team. Milwaukee was relying on Jabbar too much -- one man can't do it by himself in the pros." Asked to venture a comparison of Jabbar with Bill Walton, Delph noted, "Jabbar has the most offensive talent, but for an all-around game, Walton is the best. I like the way Walton plays -- he hustles on both ends of the court. He plays with a lot of emotion." That sounded strange coming from Delph, whose own court manner is an unemotional one. "1 iust don't let if show," he explained. Like Walt Frazier? "That's my man," said Delph. "I pattern myself a f t e r Frazicr and Dr. J." At 6-4, Marvin played all three positions for Conway. His standing vertical jump has been estimated by coaches at 38 to 39 inches, just three inches .below that of the legendary David Thompson. He anticipates playing guard for Arkansas. When not playing basketball, Delph might be found swimming, playing tennis or racket ball, sinking in church or "talking to the girls." He gave up Pony League baseball because it interfered with his basketball. At Arkansas, he plans to major in either business management or-phys ed. Marvin's finest moments in high school came in the state AAA tournament at Conway this year. He remembers the Hot Springs game best, because it meant the championship. But I remember the semifinal game against Texarkana, in which Marvin overcame a nosebleed and four fouls to fuel a pulsating Conway comeback. In the final seconds, guard Hal Crafton sent the same into overtime by snatching a rebound from two Texarkana players under the basket. When the buzzer sounded, Delph betrayed his unemotional demeanor He hugged Crafton all the way to the bench. They knew they would win in overtime, and they did. Cannonade Far Back In Third Place Little Current Wins Preakness BALTIMORE (AP) -- Miguel Rivera gunned Little Current through a hole on the rail approaching the eighth pole and tie charged to a runaway victory in the $209,000 Preakness Slakes Saturday at Pimlico. Outsider Neopolitan Way was second and Kentucky Derby winner Cannonade was third ahead of Jolly Johu. who was another tongshot. For a lime in the upper stretch it appeared Cannonade might keep alive his chances for the Triple Crown, but those chances evaporated in the final eighth of a mile as Little Current simply ran away. Buck's Bid's hopes for the Pro alt ness vanished when he stumbled coming out of the gate and threw rider Don Mac Belh. MacBnth apparently was unhurt. Little Current, who had fin ished fifth in the Kentucky Der by after making a big stretch run, beat Neopolitan Way to the finish, by a widening seven engths. Neopolitan Way fin- shed a length in front of Cannonade, who was three quarters of a length better than Jolly Johu. The time of 1:543-5 for the 1 3-16 miles tied the clocking of Nashua in 1955 and made the 99th Preakness the third fastest. Cannononero II won in 1:54 flat in 1971 and Secretariat was timed in 1:542-5 last year. Little Current, owned by John Galbreath, returned $28.20, S15.40 and $7.80 to his backers in a crowd of 54,911 on a sunny day. Neopolitan Way. owned by Elizabeth F. Thomas, paid $82 and $10, and John M. Olin's Cannonade paid $4 to show. The victory for Rivera was sweet, coming on the heels ol his lOlh-place Derby ride Rube The Great, and the Puerto Rican earned the victory with a beautiful ride on the chestnut son of Sea Bird. It was the first Preakness victory for Galbreath, who had seen his Darby Dan silks carried to triumph by Chateaugay and Proud Clarion in the 1963 and 1967 Derbies. Little Cur- ·ent's win was worth $156,500. Both the gross purse and the winner's share were Preakness records. In spoiling Cannonade's shot at the Triple Crown, Little Current, who had been ridden by Bobby Ussery in the Derby, won his second race in the eight 'starts as a 3-year-old and third in 12 outings in his career. He now has earned $198,022 this year and $207,192 for his career. Trainer Lou Rondinello missed the Derby after being hospitalized for a kidney stone two days before the race, but he was on hand to watch his first Preakness starter bring home a victory. Completing the order of finish after Jolly Johu were Kin Run who had run in claiming races n three of his four previous I ,tart ; J. R.'s Pet; Derby run 1 ner-up Hudson County; Rube The Great; Silver Florin; Destroyer; All Game, ond Buck's Bid. ' Each starter carried 126 xmnds. Destroyer, who docs not like off tracks and Pimlico Track was listed as good Saturday after a morning rain, set the early pace. Then as the field approached the turn, it began to bunch up. Turning for home, Cannonade was in the middle of the track and got his head in front briefly. But then at the eighth pole. Little Current shot through on the rail and left the crowd gas- ling as he simply ran away 'rom bi rivals. Little Current was bred by Galbrealh, a 77-year-old- construction magnate who also owns the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team, at Galbreath's Darby Dan Farm in Kentucky. He raced only four times as a year-old, winning once. This year, he had raced only in stakes and had never been closer than fourth except when he won the Everglades, Rivera said after the race, "I d a great horse and I never was worried about the inside. It the shortest way home. I never had any trouble on the rail all the way. A! the eighth pole, we-were flying and I hit him only once. I w a n t to thank all the people in the world and say thanks to everybody." "He just couldn't get ahold of the track." said Cordero of Cannonade's performance. "I moved him up in the stretch but he didn't run his race." Ismael Valenzuela, who had won the Preakness in 1958 on Tim Tarn and in 19G8 on Forward Pass, said of his decision to send Destroyer to the front: "I had to send him early be cause he was on the outside. J got position in the lead am then tried to save something vith him. But he started slipping on the turn and at the half mile pole he couldn't get hold of the track." Destroyer led for the first lalf mile and then Silver Florin stuck his head in front. After three quarters of a mile it was lolly Johu who held a head lead over Destroyer. Then, in the upper stretch, Cannonade took the lead by a liilf length over Heir to the Line with Little Current another length back, Then the field hit the eighth pole, and Little Current ended the race. Little Current, Cannonade and probably some others from the Preakness field now will take their road show to Now York for the Hi-mite Belmont Stakes J u n e 8 ;it Bcltnont Park. There they will be joined by others such as Cannonade's stablemate Jurtger who skipper! the Preakness after finishing eighth in the Derby. Indy Field Virtually Complete Foyt Holds Pole Spot INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -A. J. Foyt, on the hot seat for a week, held on to his front row pole position Saturday as a field of 33 starters was virtually completed for the May 26 Indianapolis 500 mile race. Foyt, a 39-yoar-old Texan who is making a record 17th start at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, had compiled a four- la]) speed of 191.632 miles an hour in first round trials last Saturday. Though conceding the No. 1 spot to no one, the battle- scarred veteran admitted he didn't expect anyone to beat him. But there were 10 drivers remaining in his group of pole position eligibles going into Saturday's final round of trials, and he grabbed himself a grand stand scat to watch them fire away.

Cur' and Nicklaus--were the onlj ones in the select field of desig nated players able to break par for three rounds of play in a swirling wind that Saturdaj gusted to 30 miles an hour.

DALLEMiACH QUALIFIED Dallenbacb qualified a Patrick Racing Team eagle at 189.683 m.p.h., but must start the race with a gas-gulping, oversized turbo-charger. Fifteen drivers had made the ineup a week ago, and there iyas some reshuffling of positions in the first half of Saturday's runs. Gordon Johncock, the 1073 ivinncr, and 19(i9 champion Mario Andretti both made the second row as Mike Mosley, a front row qualifier last week, lost three positions in the shuffle. Johncock, 37, from Phoenix Ariz., had been considered the most likely challenger to Foyt But the stubby, 14-year driving veteran could do no 'better thai 186.027 m.p.h. for his four laps. Later, however. Chief Stew ard Tom Binford ordered John cock's Patrick Racing Tean Eagle, impounded. He said ; "tell-tale" gauge indicated the possibility that Johncoek's ma chine had exceeded the max Binford said tests jn Sunday bcl'ore would be any an- louncrncnt would be made of whether the car was legal. "We needed much more prac- ice time," the out-spoken Johncock said. "The Speedway shorlencrl the practice time allowed this year, and every- ime I looked around, it was raining." Andretti, a three-time national driving champion, qualified a backup car, a new Eagle, Tfler working all month to bring a newly-designed Parnelli (for car owner Parnelli Jones) up to speed. His four-lap average was 186.027 m.p.h. Mosley, victim of wo serious crashes at Indy, ^·uv his 185.319 average of a week ago hold up for sixth place. THIRD HOW The third row will have 1968 winner Robby U.nscr on the outside, with ex-school teacher Tom Sneva, a rookie, riding in the middle, and Britisher Davic Hobbs on the outside.

Craig, the defending mile lampion, lowered the SWC ecord to 4:03.2, breaking the :04.0 standard set by Texas' .ichard Romo in 1966. Berry, who finished sixth in ic 1973 met, set the long imp standard of 2li-0 on his fi- al leap of the day. Patton lowered Ihe three mile ecord to 13:56.8 in a race Riessen, Laver Achieve Finals LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - Jnsecded Marty Riessen otllled ff the biggest upset of the 150.000 Alan K i n g tennis (o... lament Saturday with a wind- )lown 7-6, 6-3 win over top seeded John Newcombc. It was the second upset in as many days for Riessen. who knocked off third-seeded Arthur \sbe Friday. The victory over Newcombc means Riessen will face Rod .aver in Sunday's finals with ;30,000 first place money and a S2I.OOO automobile at stake. Riessen has the chance to more than double his total prize money this year of $28,000 if he vins the finals and since he has never won more t h a n 310.600 in single tournament, he could still set a personal record with runnerup money of $15,000. I.aver gained finals with brilliant comeback, losing the first set 6-7 before dominating second-seeded Tom Okkcr of Netherlands 6-7. 6 3 . 6-2. When asked why he plays well in the winds that reached 35 miles per hour, Riessen .said, "My toss is short and the wind doesn't affect my serve very much. But probably because I don't let it Iwthcr me." Riessen also ended a remark able streak for Newcombe. who had played competitive tennis for the last seven days siraight anrl nine of «hc last 10 days beg i n n i n g wilh last Sunday's victory in the World Championship of Tennis finals. vhere the - firsl five finishers roke the record of 14:04 set y UT's Ricky Yarbrough The Longhorns. who ran up 64 points in winning last year's meet, did even tatter this year with 182 points, well ahead of u n n e r u p Texas AM's 73. STADEt,, I'OUXCY STAR Rice's Ken Sladol anrl Southern Methodist's Joe Pouncy Tiso were i n d i v i d u a l stars in the meet, each winning his spe- ciality for the fourth straight year. Stadel won the discus with -oss of 192-6 and Poimcy hit the tape a winner in the 220-yard :lash at 20.8, only onc-tenth'sec- onrl off the SWC record held by three sprinters. Starlc] holds the SWC rliscus record of 202-11 set in 1973. The Aggies' Doug Rredhearl finished as the individual scoring leader with 20 points, i l i j point total was bolstered when he upset defending 440-yan. dash champion Don Slnrgal ol Texas with a 4.2 clacking. Texas Christian's Bill Collins, the 100-yard dash champion was r u n n e r u p to Rrodhead with 18 points. SMU finished third wilh _ points, follower! by Bavlor with 50. Rice 46, TCIJ' 42. Arkansa. 21, Houston 18 and Texas Tech 6. Among Saturday's other tjual- fiers was David "Salt" Wallier, victim of a f l a m i n g crash during one of last year's abor- ive starts, Wallher qualified in the middle of the fifth row with a peed of 183.927 m.p.h. and :ommented: "It was my fault hat I didn't go faster; the car vas capable of doi:ig it. But I bink it was pretty good for a ;uy who is getting a second chance, one that the good lord gave me." Walther spent two months in mspitals recovering from near- atal burn after last year's accident and now drives with a part of his left hand missing. Hiss revealed that his McLaren ran the four laps somewhat short of the 80 iiounris of pressure allowed on -he exotic turbochargers the Indy cars use. "We used the standard, official 'pop-off' valve and pressure plates installed by track stewards in the morning practice," Hiss said. "We thought we were losing power then, "so we had the devices chocked bv the stewards before we qualified. But they marie us run with the devices without chnnge, and I know we were missing at least two pounds of pressure. I figure that's about four miles per hour."
