New England--Coach Chuci Fairbanks- was trying to sor through about a 100 candidate for his team and wasn't tha impressed with his returnin veterans.

For the first time in several ;easons, gridiron prog nos lien- OTS have been acting with not7 Pble in assessing the Volunteers' outlook. One maga- ziiv wc"t so far as to suggest Tennessee might lose five of its "irst six games, projecting a lypothetical victory over Tulsa as the only break in an otherwise uninterrupted string of defeats. Turning their predictions to ieagiie Warfare, the clairvoyants have picked Bill Battle's iroops to finish anywhere from third to seventh in the Southeastern Conference. Alabama and LSI! have been overwhelmingly selected for the top two oerths. An uncertain defense, still licking wounds inflicted during an unaccustomed assault on its goal line during the 1973 season, is the source for most of the skepticism concerning the Vols' prospects. Battle's chief goal in spring practice was to reinforce defensive unit that was a little too pliabls by Big Orange standards. Understandably, Ihe experts chose. not to crawl out on a limb in predicting great achievements for the Vols until evidence was in hand that the defense had remedied its woes of last year. The opportunity to measure improvement will be afforded in short order as explosive UCLA comes to Knoxville September 7 for the season opener. FORMIDABLE DEFENSE Tennessee backers had their hopes for a more formidable defense bolstered when Trainei Tom Wall reported that senio: linebacker Hank Walter has [ully recovered from a knee injury that sidelined him mos of last season. The coaches think Waller, who was brillian early combat and even snared nalional lineman-of-the week honors against Auburn las the capability to set Ihe tone for a more slubborn defen sive effort.

"That's the longest slump I've ever had and it has been the hardest one," Perry noted. He was taken out of Thursday night's game after walking the leadoff baiter in the eighth inning. He had given up just five hits. "I didn't want to come out," Perry said. "But you can't say it was a bad move from the way it worked out." Frank Duffy's two-run single provided Perry with his winning runs. With the score tied 1-1 and two out in the Cleveland sixth, John Ellis doubled. Miiv nesota starter Bert Blyleven, 11-14, then walked Oscar Samble and Tom McCraw to load the bases and set the stagi tor Duffy's single to left.
