CAP Wlrepho(o) UA Athletics Topic For Chamber Luncheon F o o t b a l l , 'basketball a n d women's athletics were topics of discussion for University of Arkansas Athletic Director Frank Broyles who addressed approximately 45 area businessmen at the Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon Mon day at the Holiday Inn. Commenting on tlie task of recruitment, and (he new athletic Facilities at UA, Uie emphasis of Broyles 1 talk concerned the promotion of advance ticket sales to Razorback football and basketball games. "Tho image has been, around a long time that you can't get Ra/orback tickets -- that isn't true," stated Broyles. He went on to point out t h a t on the day of the ballgame one may not be able to purchase a ticket but 6,000 sideline scats to Fayetteville games and 10,000 seals lo Little Rock games are available at Ihis time. In an effort lo inform persons in the area who may want to attend Ihe games but have fell that tickets fire impossible to dbtain, Broyles explained that coupons will be enclosed in all Slow Pitch Softball Action continued Monday evening in men's slnv" pitch Softball with tlirce games on the schedule. In the first game Lazenby Real Estate defeated SEC Sheet Metal 28-13. Jim Shreve was the winning pitcher and Bill Rowe the loser. Boh Bohunnon homered for SEC while Rowe produced three RBIs. Ted Doak had five RBfs and five r u n s for Lazenby. 1 4 1 S t Signal Company dropped EPC 12-15. Bill Bottoms was the winning pitcher and Johnny Johnson the loser. Virgil Bradshaw had three RBIs for 141st w h i I e Johnson produced three RBfs and Larry Mays two runs for EPC. In the final contest Br'er Frans whipped Yamaha Cycle Inn 20-10. Jerry Taylor picket! up the win while White Hensman was charged with the loss. David Ray and David Johnson each had four RBIs for the winners while Hensman produced three RBIs for Yamaha. Randy Stratton arid David Ray each scored three runs for Br'cr t'rans. Fayelleville July bank state menls which may he mailed t the athletic department fo advance ticket ordering forms. The coupons and posters wi also be located in Northweb Arkansas firms for the couven ience of employes. Broyle added that the athletic depart ment hoped to get the name of 3,000-4,000 persons, wh didn't know that they could bus tickets, on their informatioi mailing list. Concern was also expresset by the athletic director, tha due to the energy crisis person would not bo willing to trave great distances to the bal games and more concentratio on ticket sales to Northwest Ar kansas residents is necessary. Recruitment and status of thi returning Razorbacks was also discussed by the director whr said t h a t most of the squad wil return a year older am amazing in their change in size "·We have had good recruit ing," Broyles, said in empha sizing the change in recruit ment from just a few years ago. In 1969 the team didn't have a lineman who weighed 201 pounds but today a scholarship isn't even given to a linema who weighs less than 230 pounds and doesn't run 4.b (seconds per 40 yards) or better Broyles said. This recruiting season there were only nine persons in Ar kansas who met those requirements to fill 30 positions thus Couple Files Suit In Auto Accident John L. and Mary f,. Dillard of Fayetteville filed a $87,000 suit Monday in Washington Circuit Court seeking damages against two Brinkley residents. The suit involves an accirtenl July 3, 1972 at the intersection of 1-40 and Hwy. 17 in Monroe County. The suit states that a p i c k - u p truck driven 1» Romona Jean Severe, am owned by her father, Wayne Severe, struck the Dillard car. The plaintiffs ask $75.000 in medical costs ant! loss of earnings for Mrs. Dillard and $22,000 for damages to the car and loss of consortium for Dill ard.

"The number given by athletes to choose a school is winning tradition firs and facilities second -- and \v are going to get competitivi with our facilities," Broylei said. The $4.7 million athletic building project now under con slruction includes a new track a baseball field and a foothal athletic building. "When the university gets through with th construction of the facilities w. will have a plant equal to anj in the U.S." claimed Broyles. BASKETBALL EMPHASIS Broyles added that the athle tic department is also trying to make basketball "a firs class citizen", with the new coach, Eddie Sutton from Nebraska, who came here with that in mind. He said that the goal for basketball profits this year is $100,000. In response to a question from the audience, Broyles sait that the trend is going awaj from junior college athletes because of lower grade poin' requirements at, larger univer sities. When asked if there are a larger number of injuries due to astrolurf, Broyles s'.ated lha [here is no conclusive evidence that supports this claim and added that the game hiu changed with larger and faster athletes who arc more likely to hurt each other. When asked about girls athlc lies, Broyles grimaced which brought a subdued roar o! laughter from the audience jhen went on to explain tha. it is improving and growing ministralive problem but tha. it is improvin g an d growin? leaps and bounds all over the U.S. Grain Crops Not Expected To Set Predicted Record WASHINGTON (AP) _ Banners are not going lo produce tlic huge grain crops predicted earlier by fobd-conscious s'ixon administration officials, Hit the Agriculture Department hinks wheat and corn harvests still wil] set records this year The USDA said Monday the -·orn crop will he down 27-i mil- ion bushels--about enough to a t t c n 6 million cattle in feed ots--from earlier forecasts be- :ause of extremely wet weather his spring. But the crop, now expected lo be 6.4 billion bushels, still mould be Ihe largest on ccord and about 750 million more than last year. Wheat production this vear vas trimmed 17 million bushels rom earlier estimates, but the ·op will total nearly 2.1 billion, . record, the department's Out- ook and Situation Board said n a special report. The figures, not scientifically collected from surveys, did not nclude reappraisals of the big 374 winter wheat crop now icing harvested in the Great 'lains whore yields arc rcport- d below USDA estimates. A full-dress review of 1874 wheat will be issued next month based on July I field in- ications. The reduced wheat-corn fore- asls were expected to be re- lectcd in higher costs for grain ext fall and winter, meaning vcstock producers--currently caught in a profit squeeze- may continue lo hold back on xpanding output.

Most other areas of the nation enjoyed relatively peaceful weather. Temperatures continued extremely hot in the West and unseasonably coorin the central stales. There were some scattered ,-ain storms. Florida's Gulf coast was .wept by gale force winds and high tides through Monday, causing flooding in low areas and minor damage. Tides were lushed two feet, above norrr-al by winds that reached 40 miles per hour. Clear skies but unseasonably c o o l temperatures were the rule over the rest of the Gulf Coast states. A record low for June 24 was set at Shreveport -a with 62. Other Gulf areas lad readings 10 to 15 degrees bclovy normal. " Rain and thunderstorms were scattered throughout most of : he Atlantic Coast states and soialed showers sprinkled New Mexico and Montana. The clear, cool weather ex- ended into (he Mississippi Va'l- ey, the Plains States and up into the Midwest. Most of Southern California and Arizona remained hot with overnight temperatures in the upper 80s and 90s. Headings before dawn ranged rom 39 at Marquetie, Mich to 103 at Needles, Calif.

(alley Lawyers Say Murder Case 'Was Manipulated 1 COLUMBUS, Ca. (AP) -William L. Calley Jr.'s My Lai murder case was manipulated "from the highest positions in the Army ... or possibly even higher," his attorneys claim. Attorney J. Houston Gordon told a federal court Monday that the military system poorly trained Calley and then conspired to leave him solely responsible for the 1968 My Lai massacre. He argued that Galley's constitutional right to call witnesses was violated when the military Judge refused to subpoena Gen. William C. Westmoreland, c o m m a n d e r of American- troops in Vietnam in 1968; former Army Secretary Stanley H. Resor, and former Defense Secretary Melvin R. Laird. "The purpose was to show their interest in the case and to show command influence. 11 said Gordon, one of Galley's original defenders. "Westmoreland, Resor and Laird all had things to say publicly about My Lai, and yet we were unable to get them as witnesses," he said. Army attorney David Shu- lingkamp said the argument was no grounds for reversing the military court. Gordon charged that "command influence" resulted in the Army decision to accuse Calley of murder rather than war crimes. "If he had been charged with war crimes, the idea of com mand responsibility would have been opened and those higher up would have been charged," Gordon said. Calley was sentenced in 1971 to life imprisonment for the murder of at least 22 Vietnamese civilians hut won a reduced sentence of 10 years through military appeal. Fertilizer Shortage Plagues Fanners; Fuel Supply Good WASHINGTON (AP) farmers in most areas are inding enough fuel to run tractors and other machines, hut supplies of fertilizer and baling k vire still arc tight, the Agriculture Department reports. The department's Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service said Monday Jiat both gasoline and diescl supplies were adequate in about 97 per cent of all agricul- ,ural counties. "Counties where fuel supplies were considered to be light arc ocated primarily in the South "rom North Carolina through Texas and Oklahoma, and in he Midwest," the agency said. 'No counties reported the supply situation as acute." Officials said reports from 'telcl offices continue to show 'ertilizer in short supply, "with nitrogen supplies tight or acute" in about 58 per cent of .he counties in 47 states. Department estimates continue to show over-all supplies of nitrogen 5 per cent short of meeting needs, phosphate \2{ per cent and potash "about! adequate' 1 this season. And, prices for remaining supplies' are likely to go up still further. "On June 30 the fertilizer in-' dustry will be relieved of all. arice commitments made to the; t of Living Council," the rc-| L said, "Some companies; lave already announced fertili- ser price increases ranging! from $30 to $75 per ton to become effective on July 1." The supply of baling wire for hay producers is still crimped evcrcly. with nearly 70 per cent of counties surveyed reporting the situation tight to acute, officials said. Arfcoitm TtMIS, TUM. P Jun* 23, 1974 A R K A N S A S _ ^ _ Expending Communist Authority Closer Look At Detente Reveals Soviet Goals By WILLIAM L. RYAN AP Special Correspondent In this time of detente, the murky mist of mistrust that persists in Soviet-American relations seems to have deepened since last year. It dims the outlook for a result from this week's new summit in Moscow .hat might mean a genuine sense of security for both sides. The mistrust has many sources, not the least of which is the constant repetition by Soviet propaganda that real peace s impossible ideological warfare must go on until 'imperialism," meaning the camp led by the United States, ^s been wholly vanquished. Other sources include Sovet suspicion of America intentions, the recent jolts delivered by the Middle East war and its consequences, the continuing reality of the strategy arms race, the clash of national interests. President Nixon and General Secretary Leonid I. Brezhnev alike have stakes in a look of success for their Summit III starting Thursday in Moscow. Added t 0 his triumph in the Middle East, a Moscow success or the President would be a welcome antidote to pressures 'rom Watergate woe. For Brezhnev, it could promise something tangible to show hi critics from the policy for which he assumes full responsibility. WAVE OF EUPHORIA To live in peace," declared Brezhnev during the wave of euphoria emanating from Summit II in Washington last year, 'we must trust each other, and lo trust each other we must know each other better." But Moscow angrily denounces as intended subversion the West's proposal for freer exchange of people and information, and the 35-nation European Security Conference became snagged on t h a t point. The very genesis of Moscow's 'peaceful coexistence" policy ?ives the West good reason for nagging misgivings about Soviet motives. The official Kremlin line is that the detente ralicy was approved by a meet- ng in Moscow in June 1969 of eaders of 75 Communist par- ies from around the world It vas then reaffirmed at the 2-lth Soviet party congress in 1971. Why detente? Soviet statements strongly suggest that delente is part of tactics and strategy for expanding Communist authority around the world. Right now Moscow is campaigning hard to :onvince foreign Communists .hat yet another international meeting is needed to coordinate efforts at this time when "in- enstfication of political and conomic instability of capital sm opens unprecedented op- wrtunilies." Pravda made that assessment une 5. The Soviet Communist arty paper also noted the 1969 neeting had fixed "the main ireclion of the anti-imperialist truggle" and the ensuing five ears proved the effectiveness f the Soviet "peace offensive." Pravda noted that efforts to nakc the detente process "trre- ersiWe" would be difficult, but eld out enticing prospects to Veslern Communists of a oming collapse of the whole apitalist system, now a favor- e Kremlin theme. The press onstantly stresses what it calls ie "deep all-around crisis of le whole capitalist system" as dwells on Western economic voes. The implication: Detente is ie road to victory of world evolution under the Communist ianner. However, there are practical, non - ideological gains for t h e Kremlin to consider from the detente policy, just as there ars practical benefits in prospect for the West from lessened tensions. In the current situation of lha Soviet consumer e c o n o m y . detente has begun to look like a necessity, at least so far as Soviet civilian poliitcians are concerned. The problem is the extent So which ihe Kremlin intends or h o p e s t o turn practical necessity into ideological virtue. Americans and Europeans find themselves asking whether a policy heartily endorsed by 75 Communist parties intends any good for the Western system.
