But Coach Still Not Happy Under A Watchful Eye FHS running back Rick Taylor- cuts through traffic during a Bulldog workout Mon- day afternoon at Harmon Field. In the background is head coach Doyne Davis, giv- ing careful attention to every detail. (AP Wirephoto) He's 'Free Agent' Due To Mix-Up Cage Star May Come To Arkansas - University of Arkansas basketball Coach Eddie Sutton said Monday that 6-7 forward Kent Allison has narrowed his choice of colleges to "probably three," and that Arkartsas is o n e of the three. Allison is one of 27 athletes from the .Ohio Valley Conference who have been declared ineligible in that league by the NCAA. "It's no fault of the athletes," said Sutton. "What happened was that the commissioner of the Ohio Valley Conference made a mistake three years the l.B grade-point applied. He in- ago, when guideline correctly allowed SAT scores to be converted to ACT scores. "It was an infraction, but the conference approved it. Now, every team in the conference, has had a player declared ineli-! gible. But so as not to peanlize the players involved, the NCAA has waived the transfer rule in their cases and made them eligible this year." In effect, the players are college free agents. 50 SUITORS "There have been probably 50 schools after Allison," said Sutton. "Here's a proven major college player, who averaged 15.1 points and 1 rebounds a game for Western Kentucky last year." Arkansas had previously announced six signees, the new one-year limit. But with the decision by Ronald Brewer of Fort Smith Northside to attend Westark College, the sixth posi- :ion reopened. Sutton wouldn't guess the identity of the two schools in the running'with Arkansas fo Allison, but said that Nortt Carolina State had been tryin, to sign him and that he wa to visit Kansas State today. Allison played his high schoo ball in South Bend, Ind. "What he would give u would be more depth." sai Sutton. "We've only signed on guard, Marvin Delph, bu Charles Terry can play eithe forward or guard. And in ou system, we'll have one pos man and four outside people with no real distinction bctwee what you would call guards an forwards." --GRANT HAL ASU Cager Inks Contract With European Pros JONESBOHO, Ark. (AP) --, Steve Brooks, Arkansas State University's basketball standout for the.past four years, has signed to play with a Trieste, Italy professional team, during the coming year. The 6-foot-9 native St. Louisan led the Southland Conference in scoring and rebounding last season, league's most He the valuable player while pacing the Indians to the title. He was drafted by the Houston Rockets of the NBA and the Utah Stars of the ABA. He chose instead to play European basketball because of a lucrative contract. ' The one-year, no-cut pact includes a car, an apartment, travel and expenses. It also includes possible bonuses such as S50 for each game the team wins and $1,500 if the t e a m doesn't finish in last place. Brooks hopes to see action at center and forward. "It's a lot better than either of the offers from the NBA and ABA clubs," Brooks said. "I'll be able to save a good bit of money, and after a year I'll be a free agent. I could sign then with an American club or sign again with the Italian team, if Everything works out. Dogs To Work Under Lights Fayelteville Coach Doyne Davis said Monday that the Bulldog football team will have a controlled scrimmage under the'lights at Harmon Playfield Friday night. "It won't be like a full game," said Davis. "We just don't have enough depth to risk ' But we'll Sprained Wrist Sidelines Razorbacks' Mike Kirkland By GRANT HALL TIMES Sports Editor Mike Kirkland has suffered a setback in his bid to regain the starting quarterback Job for the A r k a n s a s Razorbacks. He missed practice Monday with a sprained right wrist, and doesn't know how long he'll be out. "I fell on the wrist Saturday morning in practice," said Kirkland. It didn't really start lurting until the afternoon scrimmage, but it stiffened up after that. It's pretty painful back snap ;oday, and it nearly killed me." Kirkland quarlerbacked eight possessions during the Saturday scrimmage, leading his team to a touchdown on the final one. Kirkland, Scott Bull and Mark Miller all wore yellow target jerseys, but Kirkland said, "I got hit on the wrist once." Bull missed the season last I can't bend it at all. I tried to take a m i s s e d because of practice Monda registration at th University. "We only have tw or three who haven't finishe registering," he said. Asked if either Mickey ingsley or Doug Yoder gained an edge in their con- petition at tight end as a resu of the Saturday scrimmage Broyles said, "No, there wer no surprises. Yoder blocked little better, but they grade out about alike." HAMPTON PLEASES Broyles noted that coaches were pleased with th play of Harvey Hampton . offensive guard.

Coach Frank Broyles said Monday that a review of .the film of Saturday's scrimmage showed that Lee King had his best practice since returning to offense in the third game of last season. He . added, "Allen Petray also did well." 10P TACKLES ' King and Petray are listed one-two at right tackle. Broyles said King weighed 270 as a sophomore, but dropped to 230 when he was switched ; to defense and lost some strength. "He weighs 250'now, and has more strength," said Broyles. "The grades for the whole offensive lines were higher than we had anticipated, and that's encouraging," said Broyles. i Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Tues., Aug. 27, 1974 rAVtTTEVILLE, ARKANSAS Bengals Pull It Out Again y THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The undefeated Cincinnati cngals have always been lead after the game was over is pre-season, but rarely lile it's been going on.

"I didn't, read beyond that, Driesell said, "because the res was on a make good basis."

The pins were emplaced about two years ago to prevent developing hip bones from slipping out of the sockets. Doctors called Monday morning to say the surgery had to be delayed until Sept. 10 because of another case that required immediate attention. Her surgeon said that after surgery, six to eight weeks would pass before Linda could bear full body weight on either leg. The Owls' nine-game season would be over by the time she healed completely.
