LOUIS (AP) -- Right- inder Alan Foster, although o longer a Los Angeles Dodg- r, still feels the tug of his West Coast National League roots. "1 think Walter Alston said he other day when talking about Don Sutton that one of he pitchers' problems is trying o work out everything between tarta and throwing too much," he blond pitcher noted Tues- da ynight. Moments earlier, in authenticating his former manager's theory, a rested Foster stopped he San Francisco Giants 3-0 on ive singles for the St. Louis Cardinals.

The throw from Giants catcher Dave Racier was a bit oft target and Brock look advantage of it to steal his 42nd base of the year and bring his career total to 677 Broyles Won't Try To Replace Trull -- Frank Broyles, head football coach at the University of Arkansas here, said Tuesday that he did not plan to hire a replacement for Don Trull, an assistant football coach, who resigned to play professional football. Broyles said adjustments would be made within the present coaching staff. Trull, a 1962-63 star quarterback at Baylor, was hired by the Houston Texans of the new World Football League. He had worked out wilh them since Monday. Trull joined the UA staff in 1972 as a freshman coach, scout and parttime aide with the qar- terbncks. He stepped up last season to become coach of quarterbacks and receivers. He also called most of the plays from the, prcssbox. f Commenting on Trull's resignation, Broyles said. "We have Mervin Johnson, Richard Wil- .iason and Kenny Turner who worked with our offense all spring along with Gordon Norwood, who worked with the receivers after coming to' us at midterm from Clemson." SPKAYBERRY H I R E D Fie sajd Steve Sprayberry. a starting tackle for Alabama last year, has been hired as a graduate assistant. "We're very impressed · with him," Broyles added. Broyles said that most of his staff members are on vacation and he said he would not go into areas of responsibilities until he had met with them again. However, Broyles said lhat both Johnson and Williamson could work in the pressbox. Trull, orginally from Okl hoina City, set the NCAA passing records as a four-yea junior and a fifth-year senior a Baylor. He capped his collegiate ca rcer by signing a bonus con tract with the Houston Oiler during the NFL^AFL war. Trull was with the Oiler twice -- from 1964-66 and 1968 He played for Boston in 196 and. with Edmonton in the Canadian League in 1970-71. Texans' coach Jim Garrett said in Houston that his team needs experience. "I look at Trull and see a quick delivery and other ingredients for a good quarterback, " he said. "I also see some rustiness, but that's to be expected, of course." , . . Northwest Arkansas TIMES, W«T, Juiw 19, 1974 rAVETTIVILLZ, AIIKAN*** T7 St. Louis Blanks Frisco his spot in the Cards' starting rotation May 28 when blasted 11-5 by Los Angeles. And the performance, embellished by seven strikeouts to go with a single walk, was his best of the season on the heels of a 13-9 campaign in 1973. "It was a lot of little things," Foster said of his faltering start, during which he'd surrendered 67 hits and 58 runs for a 4.97 earned run average. "None of the problems was major." he added, "but all of them added up. When you start going bad, maybe one of your biggest detriments is thinking too much about it." Foster, mixing speeds effectively, delivered 113 pitches and kept the Giants off balance with sweeping curves. Chris Speier and Dave Radcr singled for San Francisco's second and third hits in the second inning, and afterward only Speier and Tito Fucntcs connected. Meanwhile, Lou Brock, celebrating his 35th birthday, .twice singled and stole second base while carrying home two of the Cards' runs, Joe Torre's single produced the first St. Louis laily, and Mike Tyson's hit drove home the second in (he fourth inning off Giants stiirter Ron Bryant, 2-8. Curiously, Foster's last start against the Giants had been a 1-0. three-hit triiimpli in September of 1970 while with the Podgers. "Bryant was pitching, he recalled. "We were fighting for second place and there was. a big crowd. lie walked me .with the bases loaded to score the w i n n i n g run. You don't forget that kind," The victory was relished by the 27-year-old Foster as his first since.April 20 but was kept in perspective. - "Let's face it." ho said, a smile escaping his lips, "if I'd fouled up tonight I'd been in the old doghouse for another three or four weeks. "When a club has a chance to win a pennant like w enave," he added, "you just can't wait fo ra guy fo pilch himself out of it wilh problems like I've been having."

Acknowledging negotiations vi th both Den ve r and the MBA's Houston franchise, Jones said, "T felt I was as secure coming here as at Houston." Jones, a forward who averaged 16.1 points and 9.9 rebounds a game at Worth Carolina last season, originally was selected by the Carolina Cougars of the ABA in a special 11173 draft. When Denver signed former Carolina General Manager Carl Schcer and Coach Larry Brown on June 3, the Rockets also obtained negotiation rights to Jones in exchange for "future considerations." Houston chose Jones in the first round of this year's NBA draft, but their negotiations ended Saturday night. Ray Patterson, Houston Rockets president and general manager, said his team was withdrawing its contract offer to Jones because the bidding had placed the team in "an untenable position." Denver owner Frank JI. Goldberg called the signing "one of the most significant in ABA and Rockets history , . . ." Jones was a starter on the U.S. Olympic team in 1972, and was named to play in three major post-season all-star games in 1974, including the Coaches East-West contest. greatest peddlers Over the years, more and more individuals have discovered one of Ihc greatest little peddlers of them all . . .
