HAPPY AT LAST .. .is Arkansas fullback, Marsh White, pictured on one of his 35 assaults on the Southern Cal defense. White was plagued with injuries in his first two years at Arkansas, but rambled for 69 yards against the Trojans White Enjoys Last Laugh On Southern Cal A hciillhy Marsh White in 197'1 nilyhl mean a happy Arkansas Hararback foolball team at Uic end of the season. Marsh, who has been plagued with injuries throughout his two previous seasons at Arkansas, shook the injury jinx and played his best game as a Kazpr- back last Saturday night, helping the Hogs break a two-game losing streak against the Southern California Trojans by a score of 22-7. "I feel that it was ray best, game, but only because we won," said White. "I've still got a lot to improve on. This game was satisfying to me because we had been beaten twice by them (Southen Cal) but this time we got the last laugh." The 6-2, 209-pound senior fullback from Ravenna, Texas,, had 69 yards in 15 carries for an average of over four yards per try. When asked the difference between this year's game with Southern Oal and the two pre vlous ones. White answers dtha the execution was much better "We did riot make as manj mistakes. We didn't fumble th ball a time and only had om pass intercepted. The only thini that bothered us was not beini able to put the ball into th end zone when we got dowi close. That's wher it counts. "It didn't bother us at th time, because we got field goal out of it. But If the game ha been close! it could have cos us the game. We have to star doing a better job when we ge in that close. As an offensiv unit we did all right, but tber is still a lot of room for im provement." Marsh then talked of his run ning mates in the backfield, Ik Forte and Barnabas Whit "Ike and Barnamas did a fin job for it to have been thei first varsity game. We all spect each other for what w can do." Earned Defensive Player Of Week AP Taps "Bounty Hunter' Winston Moved From Sept. 25 To Oct. 23 Foreman's Gash Postpones Show Of Shows KINSHASA, Zaire (AP) -You can cut George Foreman, but you still can't push the heavyweight champion around. "We'll fight when he's healthy and not before." said Foreman's trainer, Dick Sadler, whose admanant posture now raises the most serious of several obstacles to the rescheduled fight between Foreman and Muhammad Ali. The government of Zaire re- gretfully announced Tuesday the postponement of its show of shows, the title fight between Foreman and All, trom Sept 25 to Oct. 23 because of the deep one-inch gash the heavyweight champion suffered over his right eye Monday. But, with the heavyweight championship crown hanging in the balance, Sadler was not committing himself to a particular date, just a healthy George Foreman. 'Don't put too much co fidence in that Oct. 23 date Sadler told a news conferenc here Tuesday, adding that was "too early to say" wlic his fighter would be read "We hope it can be around th 23rd or the 30th" of Octobe but he later told reporters ' could be two (months)," whi would push back the fight the end of November.
