LOUIS (AP) - Lou | i; Brock has become a sort of \spiritual leader to the St. Louis C a r d i n a l s , who--after the ' speedster's divination--took a one-half game over the Pittsburgh Pirates in the National League's Eastern Division. .:· "B r o c k was really a ··, cheerleader." said Ted Siz- .-emore, who was exhilarated by '~a 13-12 victory over Pittsburgh In 11 innings Wednesday night. "He kept walking down the .bench and kept telling us, 'We can score four,' " the Car fielder recalled. And whether the spell cast by oracle Brock o some more earthly force, Cards did just that in i coming a 12-9 Pirates lead. "It was a storybook finish all right," acknowledged Brock more soberly, "but what it was mainly was the difference between two games and none." Brock's reference was loss column as the Card Pirates headed for two each to wrap up their seasons. St. Louis, with an 83-73 mark, After Freak Injury Postpones Bout Foreman Says Hell Be I .

"I'm confident the healing is under way," he said. "If everything continues going on way, fend seems to have gotten back to where it was most." But at that first news conference, Foreman refused to say definitely that he would defend hit title on Oct. 30, the new date announced by promoters. Three hours later, however, Foreman faced the newsmen again and said flatly: "I'm fighting Ali on Oct. 3 0 . . . . I'm contracted to the promoters to fight on their date.

Foreman said he was mentally ready to fight AH the day tomorrow. Although hasn't been seen outside his hotel here Foreman the last insisted, two days, 'I haven't let up on my conditioning." He gave no schedule for how he would resume training or when he might begin sparring again. The fight was first rescheduled for Oct. 23, then set back to Oct. 30.

Bake McBride's bunt single moved pinch runner .Larry Herndon to third and pinch hitter Jim Dwyer drove a sacrifice fly to right field for the victory "People say that a certain game makes or breaks you,' Schoendienst said in the Cards clubhouse. "If there's an: game that makes or breaks you, this was it." But in the Pirates' clubhouse an unruffled Manager Danny Murtaugh said, "It can't be a make or break ball game if .w win four in New York." The Pirates had taken a 5- lead in the opening inning wit! the aid of a three-run Bangui: len homer, but the Cards retal ated with six runs in the third. Al Oliver's double forged a G 6 tie in the fifth only to have S' Louis take a 9-6 lead. "This was the best game I'v ever seen or played in," Olive said.

DALLAS -- There is more 'of a similarity "between the Texas national championship season of 1969 and the Texas Aggies today than their unblemished won-lost records. It's down there in the rushing column,' where the Aggies are dominating things like Street. Worster and Co. did five seasons ago. At the end of the 1969 season, all four Texas starters were ranked among the top ten Southwest Conference rushers. Through the first two weeks of the 1974 season, Aggie runners rank first, third and fourth. All three have gained more than 100 yards in each of their starts as five SWC rushers are averaging better than 100 yards a game and .a sixth is missing out by exactly a yard total. Despite carrying the ball fewer times than seven of 'the SWC's top ten rushers, Bean is averaging 15.4.5 yards per game, while teammates Bucky Sams (114.5) and Skip Walker (108.0) rank third and fourth behind Larry Isaac of Texas Tech (119.0). Texas freshman Gralyn Wyatt is averaging 105,( yards per game and Texas Tech fullback John Garner has rushed for 199 yards in two Table Tennis Tourney The Arkansas · ranking table tennis tournament will be hell .

Cook has hit an average ol passes per game, while Reec ame off the bench to play jusl little over two quarters in ice's 28-21 loss to Cincinnat and take over second place with 12 completions. Jeffrey slipped to third with 9.5 completions »r game. But back to tlio rushers and their torrid start -in the '74 season. Bean is averaging 9.7 yards a carry, yet that ranks only second to the H.I yards Wyalt gains with each effort. Seven of the ten leaders are averaging five yards or -better a crack. Walker is gaining at 7.2 yards a try, Sams at 5.9 -- and Ronnie Hubby, the Aggies' alternating fourth running back who doesn't rank among the leading ground gainers, is gaining at a 6.1 clip on 16 carries. · The eight SWC schools hava a combined total offense average of 303.7 yards per game, and 74.3 per cent of that (225.6) has been gained on the ground. And so far, the Aggies are playing the best percentage. Just A Reminder From Man's Land Inc. We have the finest alteration Department .In Northwest Arkansas!
