''It all started at the state tournament at Newport this past summer," said Dick Harris, the ccach ol Fayetteville College Club. "A lot of ;people talked about how they've never played in this area and would like to come here. Of course, the new field had a lot to do with it." : Harris noted that except for ·perennial power Fort Smith "Kerwins, Northwest Arkansas had never ,bee nknown fo rils good baseball until last summer. "Kerwins is always .strong, but I don't know if you really consider them in Northwest Arkansas," he said. "If you do, we had two of the top three teams i nthe state this year.' ' Kerwins won the championship and Fayetteviile finished third behind Camden. "Northeast Arkansas has traditionally been the strongest baseball area, with Blytheville, Newport arid Jonesboro," said Harris. '"It's a natural area for the slate tournament because the fields and facilities are better there. . "Newport's field must have « capacity of .200 fans. I know that on the night we played Newport, more fans saw us than did all year at Fayetteviile." But the completion of the U of A field started several .coaches and players to thinking. "Most of the teams ' don't get to travel much," .said Dick. "I'm sure they'd -like a nice trip." BROYLES FOR IT Fayetteviile will likely bid . for the tournament in January. The project has the full -blessing of Arkansas Atheltic -Director Frank Broyles and .baseball coach Norm DeBriyn. ' the recruiting, benefits for Dc- Briyn are obvious. That gets us to the bottom line: how much will it cost? : Harris answered, "Edmond Todd, who's in charge of the · L e g i o n program here, estimates that we'll need to heve $600 in .hand or ..pledged. That shouldn't be too much problem in a town this /size. What we'd do is form a committee to raise the money. We could sell advertising for the programs-- · Fayetteviile raised over $2500 that way with its football programs." If Fayettevilla gets the bid, College Club will automatically be one of the eight tournament teams. The cost of feeding and housing the other seven is estimated at J1200 a day, bu.t it'may not go that high. "After two days, there are just four teams left," said Harris. "Plus there's the possibility of housing all the teams in one University dorm close to · the field. Jim 'Gibson of the University is willing to work with us, and he says the cost of feeding and housing one boy may be only $6 per day. At other places, It's been $10 a day. "At the gale, the tournament is usually a break-even proposition. But I think it would be a big boost for this area." Harris thinks Fayetteviile will have as good a chance as any team to win the tournament. "We'll have six IB-year-olds back, and all of them are college prospects," he said. "That gives us a good nucleus!" : The six are pitcher, Lawson Osburn, catcher Larry Atha, first baseman Rick Karnbach, shortstop Bob Stephens, thicd baseman Mark Prenger.and left fielder Rick Taylor. There will also be five 17^year-old returnees: pitcher Brian Holt, s e c o n d basemen Larry Compton and Tom Coker and outfielders Clark Lewis and Rick Turner. "Without question, we'll have two of the best pitchers in Osburn and Holt," said Harris. "Lawson was 13-4 last- year and Brian was 8-3. When you have 21 wins coming back, that's a pretty good start. "Most of the coaches at this year's tournament picked N e w p o r t , Camden a n d Fayetteviile as the favorites for next year. Newport returns 14 of its 18 players. Camden beat us twice to eliminate us from the tournament." Harris noted that "a few good 16-year-olds can help us," but emphasized that "we want to have two teams this year. We already have two sponsors, "if we can just get the players. ROYAL INTEREST Doug Parr, t h e v i c e p r e s i d e n t a n d general manager of College Club, in a good backer. He gave us. a team banquet the other night. College Club Is affiliated with Millgrarn's Foods of K a n s a s City, a n d Milgram's is a stockholder in the Royals. So you know they're i n t e r e s t e d in There has been talk that the Babe Ruth League will add senior devision play in Fayelteville next summer, and Harris welcomes the prospect. "I hope there s enough enterest to support both leagues," he saicl. "There's a big group dropping out after junior Babe Ruth now, and we hate to see that." He acknowledges that part of the reason is the desire of many boys that age to work in the summer. "In the past, some coaches have prevented American Legion players here from working. Kerwins still . does it. But I don't agree with that. We Just have to work around it, and practice when the guys are off work.' They worked around it last summer well enough to compile a 33-10 record. With a little support and a hometown field advantage, they might work around it for a slate championship next year.

(AP) -- The Texas Longhorns let the rest of the Southwest Conference know Saturday that they are still an explosive force to 'be reckoned with, but coach Darrell Royal said he never expected otherwise. Even after Texas Tech shacked Texas 26-3, Royal said Saturday in the wake of Texas' 387 thrashing of Arkansas, "I didn't think we were out of it." Sipping a soft drink in the dressing room.

"The real OSU Powers Past Mizzou In Big Eight STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -Oklahoma State rode the pow erful running ' of fullback George Palmer and an equally aggressive defense to a 31-* 7 victory over Missouri in tlv Cowboys] Big Eight opener Sat urday. Palmer smashed for tw touchdowns and rushed for 11 yards as the Cowboys took a 1 7 halftime lead. The lurnir point came in the third- perio when Oklahoma State made 21-7 on a 70-yard halfback pas from Albert Nelms to fello halfback Leonard Thompso circling out of the backfield. Missouri's only score cam on its first possession. The T gers marched 77 yards "in 1 plays pendulum swung shake" after Campbell blocked a punt for a 17-0 halftime lead. "The telling glow--the swing of the pendulum-- was th blocked punt," said Royal, Campbell also sprinted for 68 yards and a touchdown off a block by center Bob Tresl while toppling one tackier with a stiff-arm. GOOD TEACHER Campbell, 6-1 and 225, said high school Coach Lawrence McGuirc "taught me everything T know about holding a football." "Players used to tackle me around the leg and he told me to put my arm out to keep them o f f . When I'm one-on-one (with a defender) and he's anywhere close, I put my arm on him." On the blocked punt, Campbell said the defender in front of him went one way and he went the other--"I just ran on back there." Royal noticed .arnmie Mason, but laughed nd said "all 1 saw was the jail and I glimpsed some hands caching for it." Eight Razorbacks went to the idelincs with injuries and Ar- tansas Coach Frank Broyles said, "they (Texas) were very ihysical today." "They were so strong it was just like a tidal wave," said Arkansas fullback Marsh White. Royal was asked about the physical pounding Texas gave Arkansas and he said, "Ar- tansas was bruised and boned up coming into the game and we were in good health." Are you .on your way now to _ seventh straight SWC title English was asked. "Yes sir, "he replied, arid he didn't hesli- tate. quarterback Ste\ oil that blocked pujit," said Royal of Campbell's big play in the second quarter. . ' "Campbel.l was in then as middle guard. I think Campbell proved he is a total football player . .-. not just a ball earner, " Royal said. Royal said Texas used him to rush the -punter "because Earl was. so successful in high school (Tyler John Tyler). "Campbell effectively used a stiff arm on his long touchdown run and he said "if it comes down to a one on one situation and someone gets close to me 1 put my arm on them." Royal said "we're more of a factor in the conference race now--we played a complete football game and Earl was just outstanding." Pisarkiewicz hitting Don Mus on a three-yard scoring toss on] a fourth-and-one situation; But the Cowboys stormed back with an 88-yard drive on 14 plays, with Palmer bowling over three tigers en route to. a 14-yard scoring jaunt. After that the Tigers couldn't get their offense ujitracked against the Cowboy defense led by noseguard Carl Devorce and tackle Phillip Dokes. In its next five possessions in the first half, .Missouri gained only 15 yards, and lost the ball twice on fumbled snaps from center by quarterback Ray Smith, who /a*, subbing for Pisarkiewicz.

STIU, IN CELLAR TCU dropped to 1-5 and re- nained in the conference cel- ar. The Aggie running backs lubby, Bubba Bean and Bucky ams provided the first game core with a 12-play 75-yard rive all on the ground. Sams, a junior fullback, scored the ouchdown with an 11-yard burst off left guard on fourth lown. Walker left the game in the ourth quarter with seven completions in nine attempts four 120 yards and one touchdown. It was his first 200-yard performance since his first start, a year ago in a 35-16 victory over the Horned Frogs. Sams' touchdown effort was almost stalled on the five by two TCU defenders, but squirted away. As the first half ended Bean caught a 46-yard pass behind the TCU secondary, but could not tightrope the sidelines, so Randy Haddox came in to kick' 29-yard field on the next play with one second left. BEAN EFFECTIVE Bean finished the game with 22 rushes for 93 yards which was a little under his 6.6 average per carry coming into lha ame. However, by the end of the first half Bean gained enough yards to surpass the third and ;ourth all-time leading Aggis rushers. His performance now puts him ahead of fourth-place John David Crow, Ihe 1950s Aggie standout, and Glenn Lippman a 1949-51 star. Bean's career yardage now is 1,547. The Aggie defensive forward wall, trapping the scrambling TCU quarterbacks, helped set an 'AM defensive record by holding TCU to minus 74 yards rushing and minus six yards in total offense. TCU's most serious threat failed when Jackie Williams made up for an earlier interference call by intercepting a Cook pass in the end zone.
