And so does the Big 8 Conference. As measured by the number of opponents rated in the preseason Top-20 polls .Missouri is the only team in the rmtion to play eight Top-20 teams in 1974 and eight in 1973. Missouri and Colorado, both Big 8 teams, play eight Top-20 rated teams this year, and in 1973, Missouri and Auburn played the toughest schedule with eight Top-20 rated teams each. These two teams met in the .Sun Bowl at the end of the season with Missouri laking home the victory. These facts are revealed the Preview of the Wyatt Summary of Prc-Season Pigskin Picks for 1974, compiled annually hy W. Judd Wyatt Director' of Advertising, MFA 'nsurance Cos., Columbia, Mo.

Kirkland RETURNS 595 56 39.6 [\volve pickers have submitted Top 20 entries in this, the 13th innual summary. Five of the 12 pickers mimed Ohio State to be the nation's 1 team, four named Okla- lonia, two picked Alabama and one named Notre Dame to repeat as National Champion. PERFECT RECORD Wyatt points out that never in the 12 years of the Summary has the team with the most preseason votes for first place finished the season as No. 1. Last year Southern California was picked for No. 1 by seven of the pigskin prognosticates. Notre Dame, the 1973 National Champion, got only two pre season votes for top spot. However, this year's UP: selection may be somewhat complicated. A selection joarc of the nation's, leading coaches make the pre-season am weekly Top-20 ratings for UPI And this year, in their annua meeting, the coaches of the lation voted unanimously to omit from the ratings any team .hat is on probation. Without his ruling, the coaches' selection hoard would certainly have lamed Oklahoma in thet Top-20 cincl might have picked the Soon- ers for No. 1. Not only do two Big 8 learns, Missouri and Colorado, play the roughest schedule in the nation the Big 8 leads all conferences with six, or 75 per cent, of its :eams mentioned Tor Top-20 iionors by one or more pro-season seers. - The Southeast Conference comes next with seven, or 70 per cent, of its teams so ranked. Other conference standings in this category are Southwestern with four; and the Big 10, Pacific 8 and Atlantic Coast with three teams each. The Western Conference has two teams, Ari zona and Arizona State, named to the Top-20. The Mid-America Conference showed up with Miami of Ohio getting one vote or a 15th place finish. The in- iependcnts had eight teams isted. LIGHT 'SCHEDULE As 'compared' with Missouri md Colorado's record of eight opponents listed in the pre-season Top-20. Ohio Stale named jy most pickers for top spot \onors. play only two teams in he Top-20 ranking. They are Michigan and Wisconsin. Of the other teams named for top lonors, Oklahoma and Alabama play six teams listed in the preseason Top-20. and Notre Dame, last year's No. 1 team, plays only three. Failure of a team to receive pre-season Top-20 ratings does not preclude it from a listing the season's-end final rat ings. Last year, four teams wound up in prestigious Top-2( circle without benefit of pre season picking. They were Missouri, Miami of Ohio, Mary land, and Kansas. Despite the fact that all o ast year's Top-Bo leums were lamed to repent this year by one or more picket's, only 11 ;ot all 12 voles. A lotat of 37 of Ihe 125 teams playing major college football got one or more I'otes, evidence of the fact that he prognosticates do more than just repeat the names of teams that finished the season n last year's Top-20 ratings.

The Cleveland Indians are expected to name Robinson as a replacement for the fired Ken Aspromonte. "I didn't chase this job and I haven't heard that I'm going to be the manager," insisted Robinson Tuesday. "But certainly I hope I will. I want to be a big league manager. "It isn't just becoming the first black. I want the job. I want to manage." Robinson's appointment will Ducks Unlimited Planning Session To Be Held A planning session of the Northwest Arkansas Chapter o Ducks Unlimited Is to be belt tonight at the home of Dr Glennon Horner, 2957 Whippoorwill Lane.

Hockey Star Resigns NEW YORK -- Goaltende Gilles Villemure, unable to con vince the National Hoeke League's New York Rangers t renegotiate his contract, resign eo", according to his attorney. Beaver Level The Beaver Lake level sloo at 1118,55 Wednesday morning down .02 from Tuesday' reported 1118.57. Engineers the dam site report that th generators are not currently i use. come 27 years after Jackie Robinson became the first black ballplayer. Since then, many black men, including Robinson, have been mentioned for a managerial post b u t , somehow, none of them were ever hired. "If it's true, it's fantastic," said former Dodger star Maury Wills, another of those men- ioned frequently as a possible nanager. "But I won't believe t till I see it. "My heart is still thumping," aid Braves' home run king lank Aaron, after hearing the lews in Atlanta. "I think I'll go mt and celebrate." The Indians picked up Robinson and his estimated $180,000- a-year salary from the California Angels in September. He las been used mostly as a des- gnated hitter and will probably continue as a player-manager next season. Lou Boudreau of Â·leveland and then Boston was I he last player-manager almost 20 years ago. The Indians also hold the dis- inctton of having the first i black player in the American .eague -- outfielder Larry i Doby, who joined the team l a t e , :n the 1947 campaign. Ironical-1 ly, Doby, now a Cleveland! :oach, is expected to be released when Robinson assumes command. Robinson, the only man named Most Valuable Player in both leagues, began his major league career with Cincinnati in 1956. He won the National League MVP with the Reds in 1961 and five years later, won i t ; in the American League with; Baltimore when he captured Mays. the triple crown with 49 home runs. 122 runs batted in and a .316 average. He was traded to Los Angeles in 1972 and to Calofornia last year. He carried a .298 lifetime average into the current season and has a career total of 573 home runs, placing him fourth on the all-time list behind Aaron, Babe Ruth and Willie Mays. AspromonU;. who many feel did a fine job with the Inri:ans this year, will be handling the club for the final tirie tonight when it jinis'iies up in Boston. He has been kept in the dark about the Robinson developments. "I don't know anything," said Aspromonle. "Nobody tells me a thing. I'm going to Cleveland, pack up and close my house and then go home to Silver Spring, Md." SHL Exec Resigns GREENSBORO, N.C.
