'Dogs Work Hard Preporing For First State Tourney Tilt fsyeltevie .. ···} Against Lavaca 'Five Games On Tomorrow's Card At Field House .The Fayctteville Bulldogs went j Porker GriddersDivided For Red-White Game Spring foolball will share the* spotlighl wilh .Ihe stale basketball tournament Saturday. The first of two Red-White practice games is on lap for fhe Porker gridders Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock in Razorback Stadium. The finals in the state cage tourney are scheduled lor thai night al 8 o'clock in Ihe Razorback Field House. The : Arkansas foolball team, ,.,... ,,,, , s , _, enjoying Ihe best break inweath- Ihrough one of Iheir sliffesl drills I er " n?s na d in many springs, since early season yesterday as I ' ot * yeslerday off due lo rain Coach " Glenn Slokenberry at-" " J ~ ~ ' J ' ' tempted to remedy some of. the " shortcomings that cropped up in ' We'-District One Class A Tournament at Harrison. Taking special attention in the i. drills were' rebounding and de, fensive work, the lalter including ' . a pressing defense and work on stopping' a fast break. Coach Stokenbcrry admitted he was .7J more than, a little disappointed in ; '.the ' 'Dogs defcnseive showing against both Harrison and Rogers. Lei For Lambert and cold, but was still well along on its schedule of 18 days of drills to be completed in a 25- day. period as prescribed by conference rule. Coach Otis Douglas and his LARRY HEAD . . . May Start And Larry Head, a junior, · working into, a first string berth during the drills, replacing Kenny Crudup, who has been bothered by an car infection. Coach Stoken- bcrry said that he was hoping Head could take over the position adequately leaving Crudup for short spot appearances when he could deliver his best without tiring out loo rapidly. The Bulldogs were scheduled for another good workout this afternoon in preparation for theii opening round battle with Lavaca. winner of the District Four title. The FayctTevillc-Layaca game is slated for 2:30 tomorrow after noon. Coach Stokenberry said ihis morning lhat he did not feel the University's Field House court would offer any problems for his team. "The members of the team are familiar with the Field House," ho said, "and while they, have not competed on it the floor should present no great problems." The Bulldogs face a rough schedule if they are Jn remain-in the running for the state championship. To begin with they, are one of only four teams that have opening round games, and would need five wins to capture the crown. Their first round opponent, Lavaca, is a lough o u t f i t with 22 wins and four losses for the season. And Lavaca has a tall man, center Don White, who is fi-3 and a better than 200-point scorer for the season. Tall men have Riven the 'Dogs much of their trouble this year. If Fayetteville gets past Lavaca they must play Te.xarkana, a title favorite wilh one of the state's ' outstanding teams and an extraordinary tail man 'in Clint Otwcll, a 6-4 center being bonmcd us the best in his section of the state. And if Fayettevillu can survive this game it would probably play North Little Rock in the quarterfinals. And North Liltle Rock has the Big Six's leading scorer in big John Fortcnberry, a 6-4 lad. Tomorrow's schedule of games, there are five: 1. Emerson (W 7E vs. Clinton (W 5), 1 p.m. Wednesday. 2. Fayetteville (RU 1) vs. Lavaca iW-4), 2:30, Wed. 3.

Bay (RU 3) vs. Newport (W 2), 0, Wed. coaching . staff took the layoff yesterday as an opportunity to divide the squad into a pair of teams^for the Red-White fracas Saturday. An attempl was made lo divide the latent evenly, and Douglas indicated thai if Ihe Same Saturday is fairly close the two loams will remain intact for the game in Little Rock the following ' week.

Saddler Back In Dutch For Ring Tactics Montreal - (/P) - Featherweight Ch;impion Sandy Sadrtler toclny found himself in hot water for the .second limo Jn less than six nonths. The Hlnc New York Negro was disqualified between the third nnd 'nurih rounds here last night be- ·ause of his actions in a ichcclulcd 10-round bout against Armand Savoie. The disqualification produced a irsl-clfiss rhubarb. Fans milled bout the ringside, and when sev- ral fights broke out among them, hrcc carloads of police were hur- ied to the forum to stop the brawling. Saddler was suspended by the New York State Athletic Commission last October 5 as an aftermath of his roughhousc bout with Willie Pep. He was not .reinstated until December 5. Referee Tommy S u 1 1 i stopped the fight last night on orders from Emile Gauthler, president of the Montreal Athletic Commission, who climbed into the ring before the start of the fourth round. The referee disqualified Saddler for "fouling continually--holding, heeling, hitting on the breaks and .sending in low blows." The scrap Itself was largely an in-fighting a f f a i r a.* long as it lasted. Saddler weighed 130 and Savoie 134.
