Grant Hall nniiiiiinniiiiniinHiiniitneiinininiiiiiDiiniiDiHiira How Not To Catch Up On Two Weeks' Work In An Afternoon Doyne Davis took one look at the mountain of mail and memos on his desk and just shook his head. "I'll never leave for two weeks again," he said. The new Fayetteville High School coach had spent the two weeks as an instructor at the Arkansas Tech summer football camp in Russellville. Not that that was an unrewarding experience, mind you. To the contrary, three Fayetteville players won awards. Bobby Martin of Ramay was named the outstanding junior high linemen, Scott Mundy was selected as the outstanding high school defensive back and Bobby Davis was voted the outstanding leadership award from among 107 high school players. . But now Coach Davis was trying to gain ground on a fortnight of work, and interruptions were keep- him five yards behind the line of scrimmage. A man arrived with a new movie screen. Someone called with an invitation to speak at a civic club. Two girls inquired about a half-time dance routine. Assistant coaches scurried in and out. The biggest time thief of all was the local sports editor, who wanted to get Davis' thoughts on the Arkansas Activities Association's spring practice proposal. ' ."· . · - . - ' · · ' When he finally^got a chance to sit down, Davis ·said, "I have mixed feelings about .the proposal. I haven't really decided exactly how I feel about it yet." Under the proposal, introduced by Coach David Alpe of Malvern, high school teams would be allowed to scrimmage for 10 days in the spring, beginning on . the Monday after the state track meet. "David Alpe is a fine coach," said Davis, "and I agree with his idea that we need .more football activity in the spring. But I don't think the answer is to work out in pads. SPORTS SECTION C FAYETTEVILIE, ARKANSAS, SUNDAY, AUGUST 4, 1974 Professional Baseball After Dairymen Eliminate Blytheville Alternate Proposal "What I would have preferred is a proposal allowing workouts until,4:15 every day. As it is now, we're not allowed to do anything in the spring after 3:15. That means" we only have an hour for working on weights, agilities and putting in plays." The problem ·with his own proposal, says Davis, is that many teams already practice until 4:15 and call it track. No matter that most of the football players never participate in track meets. "Technically, it's legal," he says. As athletic director, Davis would rather have a legitimate track program in addition to a strong football program. But he notes that probably 20 Bulldogs will want to take part in both sports, and therein lies . the drawback to the scrimmage proposal. "I'm not going to put these kids in pads two days after the.track season ends," he says. "It wouldn't be fair to them." ; . So while the new proposal wouldn't hurt the track program in theory, it could in practice. Ath' letes who see the prospect of 10 days of head-knocking may decide to conserve their energies by skipping track. Davis doesn't want that. "We encourage everyone to go out for track," he says, "and we've stressed that the ones who do won't fall behind in football." Another difficulty Davis has with the Alpe proposal is the possibility of injury. "I wouldn't want to get anyone hurt in the spring," he said. "In fact, I just won't do it. If they pass the rule, we might ; work out in helmets and shorts, but that's all." The Fayetteville coach continued, "I think most coaches feel the way I do. They want the extra iime after school for an off-season program, but not contact work." ; Voting Going On Now Voting is currently being conducted by mail, with results to be tabulated by the middle of this month. Davis won't guess how the others will vote, but says, "Since I can't have it the way I want it, I'll probably vote against it." Another proposal being voted on is whether to let ninth graders play high school ball. They can do so .how only if they attend school in the same building as the high school players. "This issue isn't really very important," says i Davis. "You probably won't have but one ninth grader in 15 years that you'd want to play. But sometimes a youngster will be a year older than the rest of his class, and for that reason I think it's a good proposal. We had a situation like that at-Morrilton." That out of the way. I had to sneak in the obvious question: How is Fayetteville going to do this year? "Our two biggest problems will be lack of size and inexperience," said Davis. "Most teams have at least one or two tall, rangy big kids to anchor the line, but we don't.'We had a 205-pound boy named Mike Bien who moved here from California, but he broke his arm and suffered lacerations around his eyes in a car accident, and is out for the season." The Bulldogs will have returning starters in Clark Lewis, Keith Striegler, Dayton Lierley and John McCutcheon, but "no nucleus of experience in any area," according to Davis. At that point, the interview ended. For through the portals of the coaches' office walked basketball coach Joe Kretschmar with a sophomore quarterback prospect who'd just moved here from Illinois. Now, if Davis can just find Kretschmar a tall, rangy big kid. . . By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AMERICAN LEAGUE East W. L. Pel. G.B.

Camden Knocks Out College Club NEWPORT -- Camden defeated Fayetteville College Club 9-7 in the State American Legion baseball tournament Saturday night, advancing to the finals against Fort Smith Kerwin's. Camden, which edged the Dairymen 5-4 earlier in the tournament, completed the one-two punch Saturday. Camden will meet Kerwin's today at 1:30. Kerwin's is unbeaten in the tournament and could wrap up the championship by winning. IT Camden wins, it will force another game between the two teams. . Fayetteville advanced to the Saturday night contest by eliminating Blytheville 4-2 in the afternoon. College Club finished its season with a 33-10 record. Lawson Osburn improved his tournament record to 3-0 ane las season mark to 12-4 with a gutsy performance, in College Club's win over Blytheville Osburn pitched out of trouble ime after time, stranding 11 Jlylheville runners and twice escaping unscathed from one- out, bases-loaded jams. Blytheville entered the game as ' the tournament's hottest- lilting team, but Osburn held the Casons to just five hits. The Fayetteville righthander struck out eight, minimizing the effect of his nine walks and two Tors. . . . College Club; scored an unearned run in the first inning when Jackie Davis reached second on a hit and an error, and scored on a base hit by Larry Atha. The Dairymen made the score 3-0 in the third on a leadoff bloop single by Osburn and a two-run hornei by Handy Porter. Blytheville threatened in the fifth, loading the bases on a single by Mike Poff, an erroi and a walk. Osburn quelled the rally by getting second base man Phil Feiler on a pop fly and fanning center fielder Gary 3riley on a three-two curve ball. Briley is an all-around athlete who will play in the High School All-Star football ;ame this Saturday. Catcher Jerome Maxie of the Casons went into the game with eight hits in 14 trips including two home runs, but all lie did through five innings was strike out, ground .out and commit two passed balls:-He" led off the sixth with a "single, but Atha threw him out trying to steal and Osburn 'got the next two batters. Fayetteville went ahead 4-0 in its sixth on a single by Atha, a walk . by Rick Karnbaeh, a sacrifice by Bob Stephens and an RBI single by Mark Pren ger. Left fielder Randy Bray, who was hit in the mouth with a baseball before the game, entered in the seventh as a pinch hitter for Port. Osburn retired him on a fly ball, and I eventually got out of the i n n i n g ' )n a Stephens-to-Portor-to- (arnback double play. Blytheville loaded the bases again in the eighth, this time on two walks and an error by 'renger. one out, the Masons sent Rick Courtney up o pinch hit. Courtney, a good litter, is also the team's pit- ching'ace. who got the win Frid^y when-BIyth'eville eliminated Little'Rock Coleman Dairy. Osburn got Courtney on a pop fly and then struck out Bray :o end the inning. In the ninth, Stephens threw out the first two batters biit Osburn · Walked'the next two. College Club thought the game was over when Briley grounded into a forecourt at third, but the plate umpire made a late foul-ball call. Osburn then walked Briley to bring up the tying run in Maxie Maxie spoiled the shutou with a single that drove in two uns and sent Briley to third, That brought up Mike Hamrick, vho was nine-for-16 in the tour- lament up to then. Osburn 'got lim on a grounder to Prenger at third. David Cain, who pitched the first six innings and allowed six of the seven College Club hits 3ltis all four runs, was the oser. Bobby Alexander, who hit a grand slam homer Friday, liurlcd the final three innings.

Lurtsema said the need for a meeting grew out of the breakdown in talks Thursday to end the strike.

Riessen Earns Finals Berth In Cincinnati CINCINNATI (AP) -- Top- seeded Marty Riessen earned a berth in the finals of the Western Tennis Championships with a Saturday demolition of third- seeded Colin Dibley 6 3 , 6-1 in the first semifinal match. Riessen will face either second-seeded Bob Lutz or fourth- seeded Sherwood Stewart, depending on the outcome of a S a t u r d a y evening singles match. Dibley proved to be no match for Riessen, who has been run- nerup in the Western five times. Dible ylost his serve in the opening game and was broken again in the third game of .he first set. "I wound up breaking him five times," Riessen said, adding that before the game he was "hoping to break his serve once in the whole match." Riessen, ranked seventh in the 1974 Commercial Union Tennis Grand Prix, thinks that the eighth, it is his turn to win the $8,000 first prize in the Western. "I was in the finals of the Western five years in a row when they were held in Indianapolis and Milwaukee." Riessen said, "And I lost all five. Since I'm playing from the Western (section), I ought to win it once before I quit playing." The former star at Northwestern University has been ations," Simpson said. "T h last time I was here I was 9 per cent sure no one would'g into camp and no one did. No\ I think the chances are 50-50 and after Tuesday, they're 90 jer cent." The owners and players are scheduled to resume their talks with top federal negotiator W.J. Llsery Jr. on Tuesday in Washington. Meanwhile, the veterans were not the only ones boycotting the first full weekend of preseason games. Attendance w a s way down for the first set of weekend exhibition games and 'gave credence to Miami Dolphin owner Joe Robbie's prediction that, "the situation is grave, grim. .. .serious.

Ed Garvey, association executive director, said he hopes to ile charges with the National ,abor Relations Board Monday oncerning owner strike-break- ng tactics. Association officials charged hat some owners had offerred ome players as much as $10,00 to report, while some players who were injured were told hat they would fail a physical f they waited to report until he end of the strike. But while many players were expressing mixed emotions, the jwners appeared resolute in heir decision to stand firm. ·Labelling Garvey a "zealot. . . .who put the package together," Robbie said the gap Between the two 'groups was now greater than ever. "They want security none of us ever had," Robbie continued. "I came up from the dust and the depression and for these people to say they have no freedom is news to me. ''We're further behind the eight ball than we were in March." SEES NO END Buffalo Owner Ralph C. Wilson Jr. said he could see no end in the strike unless tiie players changed their demands. "If the owners were to givft in now to any of the freedom issue? it would be the end of pro football as we know it," Wilson said. "Buffalo would not have a team." Wellington Mara, owner of he New York Giants and chairman of the NFL owners execu- ive committee, said there had ecn no progress in negotia- ions because of a class action aw suit instituted in 1972 .by 'ormer Players Association head John Mackey against Minnesota. He said the players assqci- cation was awaitng a favorable decision, but the court will not rule on the case, involving anti,rust violation charges, until ,he current troubles are settled. "It's a real stonewall," Mara concluded. John Thompson, executive director of the NFL Management Council, described the owners as "disillusioned" at their failure to come to any agreement with the players but "resolute and unified" that the preseason and regular season would ba played.
