Changes Made In Lineups for Little Rock Red- White Game A well-conditioned sriuad of 76 Arkansas Razorbacks go to Little Rock Saturday for the, second "Hed-White" game and the last day of spring practice for 1952. After that--it's back into moth balls for Olis Douglas 1 gridders until September 1, when the Hngs start Fall drills. As was thn case last Saturday in Razorback Stadium it'll be all offense for the. Porkers at Little .Rock.- The Whites will be set to avenge a" 54-24 trouncing at the hands of the Red team. Douglas has announced a few changes in personnel will result from observation of the first game --most important of which are probably in the backfield. Sophomore Bob St. Pierre will go over to the White team to match passing with Ralph Trolllett. The Red team will get soph Mack Warren in exchange to assist Lamar McHan. At fullback a su. prise success o the first game--Earl Kaisor of Atkins, will shift to the W h i t e team to strengthen its running game. As far as injuries are concerned, two men -Larry Hogue. senior from. Dermntt, and Bob Linc- barier. senior from Cnmrien--are listed as out for the spring. Hogue, a fullback, is in the infirmary with glandular fever, while Ruard Lineharier bas a slightly fractured ankle. " is not considered serious enough to affect his baseball this spring, however. He's a leading southnaw pitcher for the Hogs. The White team will gain the, services of r~H Frank Conway of I *'i, Mass., sidelined for the past 10 days, in the Saturday's closer. The Porkers will have to look sharp to improve on last Saturday's offense which saw the vic- tf-ioiiE Red-shirts gain 51R yard: 366 on the ground and 152 in the air--to the 'white's total of 361. The ground-gaining Red squad threw 13 passes, completing five: while their rivals threw 1!) and comoletr 1 eight for 10 more aerial yards. --.,, ,,..-a j| k j c k j n g was excellent according to Douglas. Triple-threat McHan averaged 44.7 per punt for the Reds while Red Warren and Charlie Lutes averaged 33.3 for the Whites. In all. 11 extra points -re attempted, with nine-going for the score. Soph quarterback Francis Long booted t'-ree straight and added a field goal the only one attempted, while sophomore fullback Carl Mszia converted six of eisht. The leading ball carriers were more or les= according to form. For the underdog Whites Jack Troxell's speed carried him 110 yards on ~ght carries, and for the Reds Buddy Sutlon had 58 yards; - Lewis Carpenter added 64; pint- size Tommy Britt Had his best day with 100; and Kaiser topped them all with 119. Hoppe Rolling Along Toward Billiard Title San Francisco -.(/P) - Champion Willie Hoppe goes after his fourth straight ' ictnry in the \Vnrlrl Three-Cushion Billiard Tournament tonight w h i l e his rhinf rivals are playing cut - throat among themselves. Hnppe's opponent is Joe Chnm- aco, who already is virtually eliminated from the cha ipionship picture with two defeats. The Mexican pulled out a 50-35 victory over Japan's Masnko Katsura last night. Koppe alone is unde.':ated of ;h« 10 entered in the round robin event, Carter In Non-Title Scrap With Rawlings Chicago -(/PI- Rawbine Luther Rawlings of Chicago, tallert I'ghl- weight contender in the boxing business will try to overpower stocky Jimmy Carter, the IlKlit- 'weight champion, in a n o n - t i t l e · 10 round bout at Chkago Starlium tonight. Rawlings, rated the No. 1 challenger, may get a genuine crack at Carter's world championship this summer If he shows up well. Carter refused to put his t i t l e on the block this time bee-use he figured Rawlings could not make the weight. The Chicago boxer tipped 143 pounds in his last fight.

Oklahoma A. and M. is taking its top mei. to Colorado with the others of tne squad coming here.

Spring Grid Games Ruled Class B Chomps Of One-West Dayton Upsets St. Louis* In NIT, 68-58 i New York-7P)-The University j of Dayton basketball team, which . had its first fling at the "big j lime" in the finals of the National j Invitation Tournament last year, j wanted, to meet highly rated St. j Louis this year just as a measure ! of satisfaction. j Dayton got its wish last night j and the result was satisfactory not only to the Dayton players but to a majority of the 14,112 spectators in Madison Square Garden. Sparked by tall Don Meineke and chubby Leland ( J u n i o r ) Norris. the Flyers whipped St. Louis, the second-seeded team in the tournament, 68-58. Top-seeded Duquesne performed about as ex- nected in beating Holy Cross, 7868, in the second game of the doubleheader. As a result, Dayton will encounter St. Bonaventure and Duquesne will meet LaSalle in the semi-final games tomorrow night. Coached by cagey Tommy Rlackburn, a part-time golf professional, Dayton jammed the area under the St. Louis basket on defense, came up with most of the rebounds arid dominated the en- tie game. St. Louis, 1he Missouri Valley chamnion never was ahead. Duquesne's victory over Holy Cross may have been costly. Jim Tucker, the tall, springy Negro center whose leaps enabled him tn get the ball pff the boards nearly, every time, came out with a bruised shin. And sharpshoolitig Httle Al Bailey had a badly swollen knee. Prairie Grove's Tigers, who made it a successful scnsnn two weeks ago by winning the District One-West Chiss B basketball tournament, pose w i t h their trophy. The Timers downed Gentry tn tlie f i n a l s at Greenland, then lost to Hartford, runner-up in tlie stale tourney, in their first game at Prcs- cott in the slate meet. The Tigers left to r i g h t : (front r o w ) - B u r l Or, Ronnie A l l r n , Jack Curtsingcr James Cosby and Kcrmlt McFarland; (back row) Leon Beoty, Dale Reeves, R o n n i e Stone, Hobbj Sturclivant, Wayne Hall and Coach Jim Garlman. {Courtesy of Prairie Grove Enterprise). Tech Loses To SW Texas, 97-53, In NAIB Kansas City-WI-H's almost rrju- ·-- Out in PCC San Frnncisco-(/Pj-Another blow o Pacific Coast Conference spring football practice has been struck ay school presidents. They ruled out regulation intra- squad games which usually cli- nax spring drills. Previously they hart cut spring practice from 3D to 20 days. The PCC presidents said they wanted to confine spring practice tn its original purpose of teaching and experimenting, eliminating the publicity attached to public exhibitions. The ruling ends USC'a annual game for alumni in Los Angeles stadium; Washington's s p r i n g game at \vhich admission is charged; Stanford's same in which ports writers direct (he teams; Snnta Clara's fund-raising game and perhaps California's intra- squad game. California Coach Lynn Waldorf} said the Rear's game was used' as a clinic for PCC officials. H e j did not say whether that contest | would be cancelled. Eight players who were on the j roster of the St. Louis Browns last j November will be with o t h e r ; teams this spring. They have add- ! rd so von names since then, ' Ka-v Doody Goes After Second Win At Oaklawn Hot Spring. Ark.-tfP)-Mrs. J. L. Oglesby's Kay Doody went after ler second victory of the Oaklawn Park season today in the featured Little Hock Purse over a mile and 70 yards. Kay Doody faced much the same field that she trounced in he Velda Rose Motel event over he same distance last week. Others entered were Swap Out, _!ounl-A-Bit, Fine Art, J u n e Tlonus, Tria C, Battle H., and Con- 'idade. My Time registered his second consecutive win of the season, taking the Texarkfma Purse yester- dny. March Proudly, the favorite, was second, and Evidence was bird. My Time paid Sfl.60 straight ind was timed in 1:41 for the six 'urlongs over a heavy track. Williams Stops Gardner to Win British Crown Lnndon-i7P)-.Jnhnny Williams, new British and Empire heavyweight champion, talked today of a possible trip to the United States to see what he could line up in the way of fights. But first comes*a rest a f t e r the mauling he took in outpointing Jack Gardner for both titles in 15 rounds last night. Gardner, pretty badly marked up too, asked for a return bout. "I've whipped Williams before and can do it again," he said. He did beat Williams a couple of years ago and then went on to win the British and Empire titles from Bruce Woodcock. The general opinion was that Williams was lucky. The Associated Press score card gave each man six rounds with threee even. But Gardner had Williams groggy :inc that the favorites survive lirst round but the manner in which several of them did it in the 14th National Intercollegiate N A I B Basketball Tournament borders on the sensational. New Mexico A. and M., for example, hit 58.2 per cent of its shots in eliminating Mississippi Southern 86-70 in the first round windup yesterday. And at the same time the Southerners hi losing averaged 47.7 per cent. The Eastern Illinois Panlru-rs of Charleston tied the tournament MIC-team scoring record by beat- ng Huron (S.D.j College 113-78. The second-round set of eight games opened today. Quarterfinals are scheduled tomorrow night, t ; ic semi-finals Friday and finale Saturday. The champion will meet the NCAA t i t l i s t in thn flrsl-rniinri Olympic playoffs here March 29. In other games last night, the j Utah State Aggies handed Clarion I (Pa.) State its first Insp of the season 85-68; Lawrence Tech of Detroit, walloped Was'lburn University of Tppcka 97-130 and un- i beaten Southwest Texas State of San Marcos outclassed Arkansas Tech of Kusacllvillc, 07-53.
