4B Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Sun., July 21, 1974 FAVETTIVILLI, ARKANSAS With Or Without Striking Players In- NFL Teams Approach Preseason ;,£y THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ,,-,. With or without their striking veterans, National Football League teams move toward '·- their full-scale exhibition sea'"son this week with at least two meetings of league teams on "the schedule. J". The highlight of the week is I 70n Saturday, when the St. Louis ''Cardinals and the Buffalo -Bills meet in Canton, Ohio, in the an- iiiual Hall of Fame game. The .I'jrame, which would have follow- : jed by one day the now-can- :· called College All-Star classic, is going ahead even though clubs will field teams of rookies and free agents. The first paid "exhibition" of the season was Friday night in Washington, where a crowd of 14,207 showed up at Robert F. Kennedy Stadium to watch the Redskins in a "controlled rookie scrimmage." Quarterback Joe Theismann, the former Notre Dame standout who signed with Washington after playing in Canada, completed 15 of 35 passes for 209 yards and one touchdown. The Houston Oilers, who scrimmaged in a prison last week, were to meet a semi-pro team in San Antonio on Salur day night. This Thursday night, rookies and free agents representing the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears will meet at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Adults will be charged $1; kids 60 cents. Neither the Bears nor the Packers have many veterans in camp, the most notable being Green Bay linebackers Jim Carter and Larry Hefner. FAME GAME IMPORTANT The Hall of Fame game in Canton is important because it is the first official exhibition game, and also because it will be carried nationwide by ABC- TV, which has already lost the All-Star game. The Bills have 48 rookies and free agents-in camp, but no veterans. On Saturday, 15 veterans, led by guard and player r e p r e s e n t a t i v e Reggie McKenzie, walked a picket line outside the Bills' camp. The Cardinals also have a squad of «, and it includes only two vets, linebacker Larry Stallings and defensive tackle Bonnie Sloan. The National Football League claimed there were 104 veterans in the 26 NFL training camps as of the weekend, but many of them are not regulars Teams with the most veteran in camp are the Cincinnati Ben gals with 17 and Super Bow champion Miami Dolphins wit: 14. . Among the most notable vet crans in NFL' camps are Jak Scott, Jim Mandich, Howar Twilley, Jim Langer and Ear Morrall of the Dolphins; r Bo Johnson, Al Beauchamp, Bo Trumpy and Horst Muhlman of Cincinnati; Tommy Nobis o Atlanta; John Unitas of Sar Diego, and Ralph Neely of Dal las. Roland Martin (Continued from 3B) Super-R-Rebel in crayfish colors -- trie same sort 6£ lure reportedly used by the eventual winner of the tournament, Tommy Martin. I did not have such a lure, but experimenting with various baits I managed to catch a few small fish. After spending several hours on the north side of the lake -- especially in Ventris Hollow -- we crossed the rough channel and fished some protected water in and around Shaddox Creek. In this area I learned of Roland Martin's secret talent -- he is an excellent cripple fisherman. Using the same large billed crank baits that had been catching bass, Roland caught several very large crappie. But these bragging-sized crappie -- 15 inches and longer -- had to be put back into the lake. Only black bass count in a B.A.S.S. contest, and I had to put back the few crappie I caught. Yes, Roland outfished me in the crappie category as well as in the bass category! While in the cove near Shaddox we heard a siren; we looked at one another and speculated about whether a tournament boat had been involved in an accident. Later we were-to learn that an ambulance had picked up two tournament fishermen who had sunk their boat: But at the time I worried more about some of the fishermen we had seen.earlier in small rental boats. As far as I know, none of the rental boats sank that day. But most of the people using them had the option of staying in protected water. The tournament boats were compelled to return to the marina by weigh-in time or lose points from their day's catch.

All told, Brickhouse worked five All-Star Games. But it wa that first televised contest 25 years ago that stands on clearly in his mind.

As Brickhouse remembered. "Quite a hit was made of the fact that the game was teitrg transmitted coast-to-toast and also to Cuba." In those early days oi baseball telecasts, long before such sophistications as the instant replay, slow motion, isolated and hand-held cameras, and two or even three announcers in a broadcast booth, Rrick- house worked the 1KO All-Star Game alone- But how times have changed! At that initial All-Star telecast 25 years ago, the basic camera complement consisted of three black-and-white cameras. This year, at Three Rivers, nine stationary color cameras and a pair of PCP-90S, the 75-pound hand-held "creepy" cameras, will provide the pictures. And whereas only 48 television stations received the feed of Jack Brickhouse's account in 1950, this j'car's classic will he carried by some 220 stations -and viewers will benefit from a three-man television announcing crew headed by Cu,rt Gowdy. Tony Kubek and Joe Garagiola will also be on hand to lend their expertise to the colorcast. world mark for an li-dive, five- judge contest.

Later, veteran diver Cynthia Potter came out of retirement Id capture the women's three meter springboard event witfl a a total of 460.25. Boggs was far ahead of Tim Moore, six-time former natjona: champion from Columbus, Ohio, who had 544.30.
