"Nobody is ask- "ing about Portland." *«. If they did. they'd find out that Portland is wintess in six games, while the Blazers have won five of six. Portland is in last place in the Western Division and Flori da is in first in the Eastern Division, but the Blazers are also in limbo, with persistent rumors of the franchise shifting to Atlanta. And that kind of Ealk made p r e p a r a t i o n d i f f i c u l t f o r tonight's \Vorld Football League game against the Storm. "If we play like we practiced today, we'll be embarrassed by 40 points," Pardee said.

He said the worked quite a bit defense pass Several fans stayed around in the gathering darkness to watch Little kick and Woods catch punts. Broyles noted, "Woods returned nine punts or kickoffs for touchdowns last year, and I've never heard of anyone else doing that." "ONLY SEVEN" Later, Woods corrected his coach. "It was only seven," he said. Tex., That was at High School, Anglelon, a AAAA 5-1, baltle the Detroit Wheels, who have lost their six games. defense since the players were not in pads. "There was a lot of enthusiasm," he noted. The Arkansas coach acknowledged that in the Wishbone, there is less to retain. "One play is really three plays in 'the triple option," he said. Asked what kind of shape the players reported in, Broyles said. "We really didn't pusli for conditioning today. We'll be able to tell more after the second or third day. But none of the upper-classmen came in overweight. If anything, they're underweight. It shows they pushed away from the table this summer, and that's hard to do with home cooking." All the freshmen worked out with the varsity Tuesday, with such celebrated performers as Tommy Woods. Steve Little and Sammie Singleton f a k i n g their regular turn right up until team-work.

In the second game of the second set, Connors demanded hat Carnahan be given credit or an ace that had been called long. Three volleys later, Carnahan attempted to return the 'avor but head umpire Ted Reed refused. After the first point was played in the third game, both men started to walk off the court. Connors shouted at Reed, "Either you bet linesmen on all the lines, or I quit." After an argument, a 20-min- utc intermission and a conference, two extra line judges were brought out. Carnahan defended Connors action as justified, saying, "He's not being an ogre this time," The No. 2 seed in th $50,000 event, Alex Metieveli of the Soviet Union, also won his first- round match Tueaday.
