Picking up the most votes of the outfielders with ZOO, the St. Louis Cardinals' base-stealing wonder was among the classy group voted in Monday by a nationwide panel of sports writers and broadcasters. Brock, who broke Maury Wills' distinguished record of . 104 steals with 118 this season, was joined in the outfield by Oakland's Reggie Jackson and Jeff Burroughs of Texas. Jackson polled 218 votes while Burroughs had 194 to make the blue ribbon team ahead of such illustrious names as Jimmy Wynn of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta's Ralph Garr, the National League's hatting champion. The major battles in the voting took place at shortstop and for the right-handed pitcher's berth.

The remainder of the team includes first baseman Steve Garvey of the Dodgers; second baseman Hod' Carew of the Minnesota Twins; third baseman Mike Schmidt of the Phila; delphia Phillies and catcher Johnny Bench of the Reds, all runaway winners. Along with his phenomenal exploits that broke Wills' record, Brock's season included a .306 batting average, 105 runs scored and 194 hits. Jackson blasted 29 home runs, knocked in 93 runs and batted .289 for the A's while Burroughs had his finest season at Texas with 25 homers, 111 KB I and a .301 batting average Concepcion drove in 82 runs and batted .281 for the Reds Jenkins, a former 20-game win ner in the Nation'al League, ha a 25-12 record for the Rangers and boasted a -2.82 earned run average while striking out 22E bailers.

Carew, the majors' best hitler with a .36' average, also was the Ameri can League's best vote-gette with 306. Schmidt drove in 116 run: and hit 36 homers for thi Phillies. Bench blasted 3 homers and knocked in 129 run to finish far ahead of the fieli at his catching position. In, Tightly Played Contest Chicago Drops Packers CHICAGO (AP) -- "It was strictly designed to be a short- yardage play," said Carl Garrett, "but Randy Jackson and Perry Williams threw super blocks and I could have gone all the way if I hadn't tripped." The play--one of many key plays in the Chicago Bears' stirring 10-9 victory over the Green Bay Packers--came in the closing minutes when the Bears were hanging on to their threadbare advantage Monday night. Garrett not only got the two yards for a clutch first down but rambled 18 yards to get the Bears out of a serious hole. Bob Parsons then punted out on the Green Bay four-yard line and still the Bears didn't clinch the triumph until Garry Lyle inter- cepted a Jerry Tagge pass in the doing seconds. Another key play--the game was full of them--came in the fourth quarter with the Bears leading 10-6. Tagge spotted Barry Smith alone in the end zone and fired. Craig Cleamons appeared to come out of nowhere 'at the last second to bat the ball out of Smith's hands. "Cleamons made it look tough because of national television," said Coach Abe Gibron. "He should have been there all the time." Cleamons credited Smith with making "a good move. I got there at the last second. Sure, we used six backs on defensive at times but remember, we were quick enough to come back and support on the run."

The Bears scored the firs vo times they had possessio the ball to take a 10-0 lea nd then hung on while fightin f three Chester Marcol fiel oals in the second half. Mirro Roder booted a 23-yar eld goal midway in the firs eriod and Gary Huff hit Char y Wade with a 57-yard touch own pass minutes later. It wa ade's first pro touchdown a lough he leads the Bears eceptions. "I was overdue, long over ue," said Wade. "And it cam n national TV too, that's wha iade. it great.

By GRANT HAM, TIMES Sports Editor "The most coveted trophy we ave at Creighton was the one r ;most charging fouls taken uring the season." The speaker was new Arkan- is basketball coach Eddie Sut- n. He was explaining why he ad interrupted the Razorbacks' xth practice session f o r a eriod of running., "Jack Schulte stopped a fast ul," said Sutton. "That's po- ntially a four Â· point play. e took a w a y the other am's opportunity to score and ave his own team a chance. ut only three or (our players apped. "When someone makes a play e that, we want to hear some nthusiasm! Taking a charge is ne of he great plays in basket- all. It develops great pride in ic defense. When one player oes it, others look for the same lance. The play goes unappre ated by the average fan, and hat's why we want, the players heering it." Sutton continued, "In five /ears at Creighton, the record 'or most charges taken In one game was 11 by the team and seven by one player. We've set a goat to break both of those records this year." NO CRITICIZING Another play the team is supposed to cheer is a good pass. . "Again, the average fan doesn't always notice good passes,",sai dSutton, "but the players should, We're trying to promote enthusiasm on this team. Just as we don't allow any player to criticize a t e a m m a t e , w e encourage cheering for good plays." Concerning t h e t e a m ' s progress so far, Sutton noted. "The most impressive thing is the general attitude of the squad -- their desire to play the game. All of them have been Very intent. We've averaged practicing three hours a day, with an hour's chalk talk at night, "Sometimes on the court, the players don't have the fluid motion you'd expect. They look mechanical, because they're trying to thinkwhat to do while moving. But they'll get o v e r hat as they learn the system. What's important is that they're comprehending team defense well." Asked if Arkansas might have eight players who will share rcughly an equal amount of claying time, Sutton said, "I Â·ope we can find eight. Our nest teams . at Creighton were those that had seven or eight players averaging a lot of minutes. 1'iaying a man-to-man defense, as we will most of the time, it'i very seldom that a player can go all 40 minutes. "What we'll ask is that no player pace himself. We want our kids giving 100 per cent while they're out there. I have a rule that if a player takes himself out of a game, he can put himself back in any time he wants. But if he waits until I take him out, he has to wait to go back in. "If we play a zone, it might be possible for guys to play 40 minutes. But otherwise, the starters will average 30 minutes or -so."

Portland plays in Thursday light's nationally televised VFL game, hosting playoff- ipund Memphis. In Wednesday light's action it's Birmingham at Shreveport, Philadelphia at Southern California, Florida at harlotte and Hawaii at Chicago. . The league said Monday ight that eight teams would nake the playoffs. At the start of the season, the league said our would make it. Then, several weeks ago, it was expended to six. Now it's eight, neaning only two of the 10 clubs still playing (two have suspended play) will sit out the postseason action. The Storm is hoping the national TV game will be a showcase for football interest in. Portland and that it'll draw a sellout crowd to 33,000-seat Civ- ,c Stadium. If it does, it'll virtually triple .ast Wednesday night's showing of 11,032 fans, a season-low, who saw the Storm slip past the Hawaiians 3-0. "If they want a professional football team here, we can't go drawing only 11,0(10 per Â»ame," says Storm owner Bob Elarris. "If we continue to draw that number for these last two games the team closes out its lome schedule Nov. 6 against Florida then we might have to give some thought to moving." Harris said the Storm had to draw about 28.000 fans per game to break even this year, which means they're far from it. They've averaged 15,433. So :ven two full houses for its nal two games wouldn't bring the hooks into the black. The Memphis Southmen, 14-2 and leading the Central Division, seem to have nothing btil rushers, with three of them in. the top 10. J.J. Jennings leads the league with. 1,189 yards, John Harvey has 802 and Willie Spencer, who will - probably miss the game against the Storm with a knee injury, has 788. Still, the Southmen can also move the hall in the air. John Huarte, back in the starting line-up after missing 3% games with an injury, has thrown for 20 touchdowns and Ed Marshal has caught a league-high 15 scoring passes. Birmingham's Americans are 12-4 and trail the Southmen two games while Shreveport is in the Western Division scramble with Hawaii and Portland. The Steamer's main playof hopes rest on Jim Nance, 88 yards away from rushing into the 1,000-yard club, and Rick Eber, No. 1 among WFL re ceivers with 58 catches for 696 yards. Southern California, 12-4, ha already clinched the Western title and faces a tough chal lenge from Philadelphia, 6-10 The Bell is four games behind second-place Charlotte in th East. It figures to be a war of big bombs between rookie Ton Adams of the Sun, the No. passer in the league with 3,216 yards, and Philadelphia's Jim Corcoran, No. 2 with 3,002 James McAlister and Dave Wil Hams have, teamed for 10' Southern California catches good for 1,562 yards and 13 TDs, while John Land is Corco ran's main target. First place in the East is at stake when the Florida Blazers. 11-5, visit Charlotte, 10-6 They're as close as their firsl meeting, when the Blazers pulled out- a 17-15 victory over the Harnets. The Hawaiians, 6-10, and Chi cago, 7-9, are thinking wile card and the Fire is hoping foi replay of its 53-29 battering of [awaii earlier this year.
