It took them just three days id nine workouts to overcome oach Frank Broyles' pre-prac- ce decisio nto list all freshmen n the third team or lower. Injuries opened the way for ve of the six. As a result of .inor injuries to Alan Watson nd Teddy Barnes, Vaughn usby and O.C. Jackson are al- ernating at second-team right alfback and Tommy Woods is sted as a second-unit alternate t left halfback. The other freshmen sharing econd-team status are split end oe Jackson, safety Doug Bar- ·egen and cornerback Howard ampson. Joe Jackson and Bar- ^ege'n moved up after injuries o Freddie Douglas and Bp Busy, but Sampson played his way nto the chart. Lusby is the only non-Texan f the six. He hails from Lawon, Okla., where he 'scored 66 ouchdowns and 26 in one sea- on. O.C. Jackson is from Dal as, Joe Jackson from Beau mont. Woods from Angleton and Jarwegen from Grapevine. Sampson's alma mater is Saytown Sterling, same as thai f freshman teammates Sam riie Singleton and Martin Le mond. Singleton was the mos allyhooed of the three, having een named AAAA player he year in Texas. FULLBACK OKAY "I played halfback, lineback and cornerback at Bay town," says Singleton. "They've ^ me at fullback now, bu it's all right. I played t h e r i unior high." At 6-2 and 215 le was strong enough in higl school to throw the shot 63 fee and tile discus 167. His sho put was good for the stzt championship. · Singleton and the other freshmen went through their first wo college practices in pads 'riday. Each workout featured n inside drill, pitting ibest a- ainst best. Broyles singled out senior tackles Jon Rhiddlehoo- er and Brison Manor as the nost effective performers. "We had more of a defensive Irill this morning, " he said, 'but this afternoon I thought oth the offense and defense mproved. Linebacker Marvin Daily, vho suffered a broken jaw last pring, had his jaw bruised Friday morning. "It's not broken, but he'll miss four or five days of practice," said Broyles. Sophomore Reggie Freeman, vho had been running second earn at nose guard, missed the workouts with a bruised shoulder. Defensive end Chuck McKinney returned to practice and intercepted a pass. He had pulled a leg muscle Wednesday. LIKES OFFENSE Harvey Hampton said lie was laving more trouble with head aches during practice than with new offensive guard posi Aon. "I played both ways ii ligh school, and really I like offense better," he said.' Hampton's brother William touted as perhaps the best high schqol lineman in Arkansas this year, broke his leg earlier this week at Forrest City. "I talke' to my mother,", said Harvey "and she said he'll recover al right. He'll miss the season, bu should be able to play collegi ball." Hiddlehover appeared e v e n quicker than in the spring when he ' dominated the Red White games. "It's a funn thing," he said, "My best time in the 40, 4.9, came when weighed 245 pounds. But las spring, I never could beat 5.2. "So this summer, Russ Tible and I worked put three imes a week at a junior college Grand Prairie. Tex., and I ost from 2-13 to 222. We worked t 'a water recycling plant on a government aerospace con- itruction site." W h i l e Rhiddlehover oosing weight, tight end Mickey Billingsley was gaining. 'I worked setting tiles in Saline County, and lifted weights," lie said. "I gained 10 pounds to 215." Billingsley started for the reshman team last year, and then pulled even w i t h Doug Yoder of the varsity this spring. Matt Morrison is the best pass receiver of the three of us," said Billingsley. "He'll probably come in on third-and-long." The Razorbacks will scrimmage this afternoon at 4 p.m., jut don't come unless you have a pass. Security is so tight at Razorback Stadium that when an ail-plane approached Friday, someone said, "Watch Coach Broyles look at it." Sure enough, from his tower perch, Broyles cast a suspicious eye toward the intruder. DEPTH CHART OKFKXSE SE--Craig-crBricn, Warren-J. Jackson LT--Skinner. Trihble . LG--Koch, Hampton C--LaFarftUC.

The margin between the National League division leaders was only a matter of inches as Brock's two - out ninth inning ground ball skipped under Marshall's glove and just out of shortstop Bill Russell's reach. The ball rolled into center field as pinch runner Luis Melendez sprinted home from second base for a 2-1 victory. Brock, who s t o l e his 87th base of the season in the fifth inning and now is 17 b e h i n d Maury Wills' record, came up against Marshall, who was making his 83rd relief appearance--nine short of his own major league record set last year.

Douglass, a lean, soft-spoken hut highly articulate man, had reached his peak some three years ago. He'd put together a couple of seasons in which he won some $80,000 to $90,000 a year, was winning one or two tournaments a year and appeared to be set. Then he was elected by his fellow pros to the tour's prestigious Policy Bard and almost simultaneously developed a mild case of tendonitis. "I could see my career going down the drain," Douglass said, "it's pretty hard not to get down when that's your life." He dropped out of an exempt category because of poor play two season ago and then -- the tendonilis no longer a problem -- managed to win only $9,000 last season, a two-year drop from 25th to 157th on the mon ey-winning list.
