· Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Tues., Oct. 22, 1974 . . .. · FAYITTKVILL1, ARKANSAS After Big Friday Night By HARRY KING LITTLE HOCK (AP) -- Des Arc quarterback Ronnie Elam s passing less and his coach, ohn Rollins, is enjoying it more. Elam was throwing about 20 imes a game last year and the Eagles went 5-4-1. This year, Elam is averaging 4 passes a game and Des Arc s 5-2 and unbeaten in District A competition. Des Arc took the conference ead Friday night with a 28-6 victory over previously unbeaten Barlon. Elam completed six of 12 passes for 101 yards and ran 21 aids for a third touchdown.

(AP) -The Arkansas State University Indians will have to play the remainder of the football season without cornerback Joe Qollimon. . Coach Bill Davidson said Monday that Hollimon had suf- f e r e d - superficially torn liga- ments in his knee during Satur-j day's 10-6 loss to Lamar. Davidson said the senior from Trumann must wear a cast for five weeks. Davidson also said safety David Hines is doubtful as a starter for Saturday's game at Southern Illinois University. The junior from Little Roc' twisted his knee on a punt re turn and will be held out o contact this week,. Davidso: said. The Indians, 2-2 for the sea son, will continue recognitio work on Southern Illinois' for mations through Wednesday 1 drill. Des Arc Back Voted AP Laurels For his performance, Elam was named High School Player of Hie Week in Arkansas. Rollins said Elam had cut back on his passing because the running game had become more effective. He said fullback Danny Burnett, tailback Terry McMillan and the offensive line had taken some of the pressure off Elam. "The thing that has really improved this year is our offensive and defensive line," Rollins said. "We had some things going last year, but didn't do a good job in the line sometimes." Elam completed 49 per cent of his passes last year for 1,392 yards. This year, he has com- pleted 42 of 84 for 687 yards. He was injured in- a 19-14 loss to Augusta and missed the England game the following week. Elam is a sophomore. He failed the seventh grade and started for the varsity as a, ninth grader. "He wasn't eligible for junior high ball," Rollins said. "I don't care what grade he's in. If he's good he can play and lie can throw the ball as well as anybody in the state." Rollins was asked if it bothered other team members to have a sophomore calling the plays. "He performs better than most .12th graders," Rollins said. "The players have con- fidence In him. All tha players have confidence in each other.'.' Rollins said Elam can throw any type pass. "He knows .when to throw hard and when to throw soft," he said. How about finding secondary receivers? "Usually, the primary receivers are open," Rollins said. Elam is one of the few Des Arc starters who does not play both ways, although Rollins said Elam was a good defensive player in junior high, He also said Elam was quicker than he was last year. He was 5-foot-8 and weighed 183 last year. Now, he's 5-foot-10 and weighs 175. Rollins said Pro Hockey By The Associated Press NHL Monday's Games "o games scheduled Tuesday's Games Atlanta at New York Islanders Philadelphia at Los Angeles ..Detroit at Washington Minnesota at Vancouver .

CAP) - The frost is on the pumpkin. The leaves are turning gold. The kids are back in school. Still, it's baseball season in Union. It's always baseball season at the home of Larry 'Luebbers, seller of country hams and baseball fan extraordinaire. For, while the 33-year-old Luebbers is ruler of his domain, he is also umpire, groundskeeper and, often, the only fan at his own major league ballpark. Luebbers is the proud owner of all that js left of Crosley Field, until 1970 the home of the Cincinnati Reds. "All I really ever wanted to do was walk on the field," said Luebbers. "Then when they auctioned off parts of the stadium, I. thought I'd pick up a few seats and one thing kept leading to another." Four years and $29,000 later, Luebbers has a barn full of seats and his ducks now peck at the pitching rubber once trod upon by the likes of Jim Malo ney, Johnny Vander Meer and Ewcll Blackwell. "I didn't think It was right that they should just rip the stadium up and cart it away," said Luebbers. So, he did something about it. As you enter Union you can see Luebbers' stadium up on the hill. It's really a skeleton of a stadium now. The fences, the foul poles and the dugouts are all in place, but there are no grandstands. Luebbers has only 408 seats, but that's enough. "There are only 250 people in Union," grinned Luebbers. "If I tried to rebuild the place with all those decks, every person in Union could have his own section." The old Scoreboard is going back in place as soon as the steel arrives and signs with 1970 prices grace the 'outfield walls. Luebbers s p e n t $9,000 terracing his pasture and seeding it with bermuda grass. In the past three years, local knothole teams have used the park. Luebbers himself -is a coach. His team was 2-10 this year. ' "Last winter the infield froze over and we ice-skated," saic Luebbers, settling into one of the box seats which gives him a view not only of the field but out into the surrounding Blue Grass countryside. ^ "I hope that I can get this thing finished. It's becoming al most a compulsion with me." "Then again, sometimes I ge the feeling that I. hope I'll nev er be able to say I got it all." lam lost most of the flab help- ng his brother farm during lha summer. Rollins, who has been coach- ng at Des Arc for 10 years, reused to compare Elam to other college prospects from Des Arc. His measuring slick includes Cliff Harris, now of the Dallas Cowboys; former Ouachita running back John Wayne Cunningham, and Tommy Harris, safety at the University ot Arkansas.
