But I'm glad the season is here. We need to play a ball game." Even it it's against a team that returns f i v e of its six starting offensive linemen from last year. Tiger guards Harry Cabaniss and Robin Casey are back, as are tackles Chris Bentley and Dan Craig and - tight end Chuck Morgan. Center Joe Looney is the only neophyte. 'LITTLE BIGGER' Be'ntley weighs 220, Craig 205 and Morgan and Casey 190 good, but the defense worries me. Fayetleville will be iiarc to stop.' Said Davis, "I know Benton ville feels that this year's team can be one of their better bal clubs. I just hope we have a good group of fans from Fay elteville go to the game. "I've met with a lot of people in the last several weeks, and we think we're off to a good start with the fans.

"Plus they have live or six quick backs who can play." The most heralded of those is Scott Bailey, who averaged rushing over 100 yards a game after being moved-to fullback for the last five games of 1973. "He's had a leg injury this week," said Bentonville Coach John Biirgess, "but we hope he can play." Bailey will .share the ball- c a r r y i n g with quarterback Warty Casey, wingback Mike Conn and taibacks Alan Dean and Randy Thompson. Dean and Marty Casey are juniors, is starting split end Bob Burckart., Robin Casey and Craig will play b o t h ways, manning the tackles on defense.

The U.S. team, looking ex- ckptionally ragged at times, fell behind by as much as 11 points in the first half as Salnikov hit on five of nine field goal attempts. All-American David Thompson of North Carolina Slate failed on all four of his tries from the field for the American squad. Thompson had only three points at the end of the first 20 minutes. Mo Rivers and Ken Carr kept .he U.S. team in contention and helped narrow the gap to 36-33 at the half. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The New York Yankees are red hot. The Boston Red Sox are red-faced. Their individual predicaments have given some color to the American League East The Yankees won their 16th game in 20 Wednesday with a 3-0 decision over the Milwaukee Brewers and climbed into a first-place tie with failing Boston in the East. The embarrassed Red Sox made the tie possible by losing a 6-0 decision to the Baltimore Orioles, their sixth straight loss and their ninth in the last 11 James. The win moved the third place Orioles within two games of the top.
