National Coaches Golf Tourny Tees Off Today On Hot Springs Course HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) Arkansas and Texas form the key matchup here today when Frank Broyles and Darrel Royal lead a 99-man field in the 10th annual National Coaches Invitational Golf Tournemcnt. The 6,285-yard par-72 DeSoto Kolf course is located at Hot Springs Village. Broyles. head coach and ath letic director at the University of Arkansas, won the tournament in 1967 at Cherokee Village. He repeated in 1970 Bella Vista when he established a tournament record of 70 for 18 holes. He has finished second three times in the tournament's history. Royal, who has guided Texas to six straight Cotton Bowl ap pearances, won the coaches tournament at Cherokee Village in 1968 and at Bella Vista in 1971. He finished second to former Oklahoma coach Chuck Fairbanks in the 1972 tourpa- ment at Bella Vista. Doug Weaver, a third-place finisher at Cherokee Village, is considered a strong challenger. Weaver, who is head coach at Southern Illinois University, was scheduled to arrive here late Sunday night from Omaha Neb., where the Salukis were competing in the NCAA World Series. Johnny Majors, head coach at Pittsburgh, and Ben Martin head coach at tlie Air Xorct Academy, also are among the favorites in the 36 entries of the coaches division. Majors is a former assistant under Broyles "I hit the ball pretty well, but I hit it a few too many times." Majors said a f t e r his Sunday practice round. Cliff Speegle, executive sccrc ary of the Southwest Confer ence, is paired with Royal Speegle has won the specia ;uest division three times anc is a favorite again this year. Lou Holtz, who guided North Carolina State to Liberty Bow r victory; Jerry Waggoner of the Bryan (Tex.) Eagle, and Joe Eason, president of the Astro- Blue Bonnet Bowl, are the ottv er members of the Broyles foursome. Eason is another top contender in the special guest event. Jimmy "Red" Parker, for mer head coach at the Univer sity of Arkansas-Monticello who is now in his second season Clemson, and Arkansas Gazette sports editor Orville Henry are the other members of the Roya quartet. Henry tied for seconc in the sportswriter-tclevision di vision in 1970 at Bella Vista. Tournament director Bob Cheyne said the Callaway hand icap system will be used for tb first time this year to "give ev eryone an equal shot." The system permits a playe to subtract from one-half of hi: worst hole to his six wors holes, depending on what he shoots. Cheyene said that unde the new system instead of hav ing scores ranging from 75 to 130 (hey now will range from 71" to 85. "But from my expcricnci with the Callaway. the bette golfers will still be the leading, contenders." he said. Nearly 15 inches of rain ha fallen on the DeSoto courS' since last Tuesday but thos playing Sunday practice round said that the greens and fair ways are in good condition. Predictions Fly On First Tee By GRANT HALL TIMES Sports Editor HOT SPRINGS VILAGE -"When are you coming out with your predictions." The questioner was Texas Tech coach Jim Carlen, and the questionee was Southwest Conference football expert Dave Campbell of Waco. The site was the first tee at the DeSolo Golf Course, where a temporary traffic jam of electric carts had occurred. The subject was the 1974 football race. ."I'll pick 'em as soon as T figure out who's going to win," said Campbeil. Carlen answered, "That's easy -- Texas." The two then agreed that Texas AM .should be ranked second, Arkansas third and Tech fourth, with Baylor heading the second division. But Carlen added, "Arkansas may be the best team in the league before it's over." Aside from the fact that Texas has won s i x " straight championships, Campbell and Carlen like the Longhorns' chances because they both think fullback Roosevelt Leaks will play. 'TVe t h o u g h t so all aong," said Carllen. That runs counter to what Royal has said, and to w h a t Leak's Austin based doctor says. Bill Morgan, the SWC in formation director, chicled Carlen a bit: "Lubbock is 380 miles from Austin how in the heck can someone in Lubbock speak for Leaks!" Morgan also . squelched the rumor that Leaks will opt for a professional cnreer in 1975 if he can't play this year: "Roosevelt told me he would return to play for Texas in 1975. I don't know of anyone who can speak for Leaks better than he can." But so much for football. Number one tee was f i n a l l y opened, and two groups moved toward it simultaneously. With a bit of cart-driving remcnis- cent of Little Current's stretch run at the Belmont, Lou Holtz of North Carolina State reached the tee first. Then turning to the group behind, he said "That really wasn't f a i r we'll flip you for it." The slow poke foursome consisted of Campbell, Morgan, Bolney Meece of the Daily Oklahoman and me. "Go ahead said Campbell. You had a good record last year." When we finally started, it became clear why Campbell · nd Morgan yielded to Holtz's group. By convention rules, neither is a threat to break 90. But conventional rules hold little sway with these two. My first drive traveled a long way, but found the right rough. After a brief seracfi Morgan located a ball. "This isn't mine I said." "It is now," he enjoined. On the second bole, neither Morgan or Campbell drove his ball more than 80 yards. They agreed that in such a situation the only thing to do was to tee up from the fairway. When we got to the green, Campbell prepared to strike a K foot putt away Dave." said Morgan "But you're already hent over so go ahead and putt." When Campbell's first put went six feet past, he remove the flag stick, "I'll just leave it out." With that, he droppcc in three inches behind the hoi giving himself a can't-mis back stop. On the par three fourth hoi Morgan .said. "This is wher I hit a shot last year that richo cheled off four cars and landc. in a front seat." At the fifth, Campbell hit left-to-left shot t h a t duck hooker, into the rough barely 75 yard off the tee. "Let me hit anothe one,',' he said. This one he depo- sicd into a creek 30 yard ahead. "1 wouldn't have believed it, said Meece, "Rut you're goin to like your first shot bettc than your second." Meec served in the capacity of chau feur, choosing not to play In rather to deliver the needle t everyone else. Morgan was most inviting target, what w the Dallas-based golfers banan tee -shop. Morgan was quite proud his banana, and had begun I groove the shot hy (he si.xl hole. After each drive, he woul yell, "Come body! Claw. that hill!" Then he would to Meece! "it's all skill." While all is vaudeville wa being played out, the TIMEE own Allan Gilbert was buildin a four-over-par 76 seven groups ahead. His opjwrUinisti baby, be some scratch, get birdieing of the and holes had become legendary b the time of the luau Sunda evening.

Just playing "Cops and Robbers". 2. Doing nothing more than chasing down youngsters that exceed the speed limit. 3. Simply walking around with a pistol on your hip and a star on your chest. IT IS: 1. Being knowledgeable and serious about law enforcement. 2. Being able to lead your deputies and command their respect. 3. Being able to perform the many administrative duties of the office. 4. Making no commitments or promises to obtain political support. 5. Possessing the qualities of honesty and fairness and the desire to be of service to all your fellow citizens. 6. Fully respecting the rights of those who come into official contact with the sheriff's office, while at the same time vigorously enforcing the law. But most of all it is having MATURE JUDGEMENT.
