Goodwin described Jones inning style: "He looks like he's floating, e'll float and then put on a urst of speed. He has pretty od open field moves, but he's ot going to really punish a ckler. He doesn't know a liole lot about dipping his loulder. When he sees a tack- r coming, he usually finesses m." The fullback carries about 50 er cent of the time in the arkview offense. "Lasl year, our tailback only arried 55 times in 11 games, ut he averaged 7.5 yards a try nd he didn't have great peed," Goodwin said, ouple of years ago, in this ame offense, we would gel our ailback out there wide open lut he didn't have Ihe speed to get anylhing."

The Hogs Will Work In Pads Today By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Arkansas C o a c h Frank Broyles says t h e Razprbacks probably will practice in pads today and Tuesday in preparation for their season opener Sept. 14 against Southern Cal. Broyles said that Saturday's two-hour workout was a poor practice. "It didn't work out like I thought it would," he said. "I wish we had worked in the afternoon. I guess the morning is no time for football." Broyles worked the Razorbacks Saturday morning to let them watch the UCLA-Tennessee game on television in the afternoon. However, the coach said the team made some kicking game improvement. "We got it on film and we'll be able to make corrections," he said. "We'll be able to study every phase of it." Two previously injured Ha- zorbacks who returned to Saturday's drill were safety Bruce Mitchell and defensive tackle Jon Rhiddlehoover. Stecoiate hsavfe!
