Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Wed., Oct. 23, 1974 · 13 /As Exciting As You'll See 7 Broyles Praises CSU By GRANT HALL TIMES Sports Staff | A r k a n s a s Coach Frank - Broyles continued to sing the ; praises of the Razorbacks' next ! opponent Tuesday. ', "Colorado State is as exciting ' a team as you'll see all year," i he said. "They are something, * the way they can throw the ball, catch it and run with it. | They spread out all over the · field, use multiple formations J and send five men out on pass .' patterns. Their receivers are . leading the nation. · "Plus they have a freshman i running back, Ron Harris, who "| has already rushed for over 600 ; - yards. He could be as good a ' runner as we've faced this '· year. Colorado State has as ; many big-play people as I've V seen in a long time.", ·t In short, the Rams are hardly ;· the same team that led the Bot\ torn Ten teams in the country .; only two years ago. "They've ; done a good job recruiting since - then," said Broyles. I So what will the Razorbacks ; do to stop them? '; For one thing, Arkansas has '[ moved freshman Tommy Woods · from offensive halfback to ,' strong safety, replacing the njured Bruce Mitchell. Woods 'will stay there for awhile, anyway," said Broyles. "He ilayed both offense and defense n high school." The Razorbacks will also be rushing the passer, with Jon thiddlehoover and Mike Campbell each ready to play both nose guard and tackle. "Harvey Hampton also did a good job of rushing- the passer today," said Broyles. RHIDDLEHOOVER KEY "A let will depend on how well Rhiddlehoover's injured leg lolds tip. But it's likely that Leotis Harris will play more at tackle than nose guard." Linebacker Marvin Daily missed the Tuesday, workout with a slight knee injury, but should return to practice today. R.C. Thielemann missed the drill with a light ankle sprain. Also nurturing tender ankles were halfback Vaughn Lusby and center Richard LaFargue. "When either one gets his ankle stung, he has to come out for a play or two," said Broyles. "It will probaby be like that all year." Broyles added, "Lusby will start at left halfback xtnless be gets worse. He's ^ good football player." LA Pilot Voted'74 Manager Of The Year | NEW YORK (AP) -- Walter ' Alston, the Los Angeles Dodgers' unflappable general, was · named The Associated Press' ,'· National League Manager of ' the Year today. '·; The stoic Alston, who guided ^ the Dodgers to the National ' League pennant this season for ; the seventh time in his 21-year big league career, won in a rout. ; Alston oulscored Danny Muri taugh, manager of the National i League East champion Pitts- ·burgh Pirates, 290 votes, to 87. {Voting by the nation's sports I writers and broadcasters took · place prior to the league's play.; offs. Red Schoendienst, whose St. ; Loujs Cardinals battled Pittsburgh down to the end for the ·' East title, finised third in the · balloting with 26 votes. ' Finishing behind the top three were, Danny Ozark of the . Philadelphia Phillies with six ; votes; Atlanta's Clyde King , with three and Cincinnati's Sparky Anderson with two. YOUNG TEAM Alston took a relatively young ; team to the hefghts this year. It · was his tender, loving care that made champions out of the · Dodgers. "I know that the players have enough to think about on the field, so I try not to give them too many problems in the clubhouse," says the easy-going Alston. Known as a superb handler of ,meni Alston's tempered personality gave the Dodgers quiet 'confidence throughout the tough National League West battle with tho Cincinnati Reds. In modern terminology, Alston kept the Dodger ship "rocking steady." Once asked his philosophy the dean of major league man agers noted: "I pat most every body on the back and kick the rare ones that need to be kick ed." Alston was born in Hamilton Ohio, 62 years ago and one worked as a high school basket ball coach and science-teacher He entered the Dodger organ ization with their Trenton, N.J, team and also managed a Montreal before being namei the Dodger field boss for th 1954 season. ONE-YEAR PACTS Alston signed a one-year con tract that season, and unique!; has kept up the patten throughout his glamorous ca reer. "One-year contracts are i matter of pride with me," Al ston says. "!' wouldn't want t work anywhere where I wasn' wanted." Alston's accomplishment stamp him as one of the mos successful managers of a time. Only two men have man aged one team longer than AI ston has. Connie Mack man aged 50 years with the Phila dtlphia Athletics and Johi McGraw had -31 years with tb New York Giants. Alston has won four Work Championships, a feat sur passed in the game by onl; three other managers. And onl four managers in the history t major league baseball hav won more pennants. T980 Olympic Sites Awarded To Moscow And Lake Placid N.Y. - VIENNA CAP) . -- i Moscow nd Lake Placid, N.Y., were chosen today to stage the 19BO ;OIympic Games. · · t As expected, the Informational Olympic Committee Ichose Moscow in preference to ·Los Angeles, the rival : : candidate. ', Lake Placid was the only ap- ·plicant for the Winter.Games. · Lord Killanin, president of the IOC, announced the deci- 'sions in the crowded main room of Vienna's City Hall. He was handed a sealed envelope by an aide, tore it open and announced that Moscow had been chosen for the-Summer Games. Applause broke out and people swarmed around the Russian delegation with congratulations. Mayor Tom Bradley of Los Angeles, a 6-foot-4 former quarter-miler and basketball player, pushed his way through the throng to shake the hands of the Russians. ; As the hubiib died down, Kill- anin announced that Lake Placid had been approved, too. He said the voting was secret and rio figures would be given. But one IOC source said the voting was 39-22 for Moscow over Los 'Angeles, and unanimous in favor of Lake Placid. Moscow's victory was the cli- Beaver Level Beaver Lake level stood today at 1118.45 feet above sea level, up .03 from Tuesday.

The Soviet cap tal and Los Angeles both los out four years ago when Mo treal was chosen for the 19' Samos. BIGGEST EVENT The Russians had stepped u :heir campaign in the last year seeking the Olympics as th biggest event for their nationa prestige since, the revolution. Los Angeles, meanwhili pitched its campaign in a lo key and pledged to stage a Olympics in the spirit of inte national friendship, emph sizing that all visitors an press would enjoy complel freedom in California. Mayor Bradley and his aid shook hands with one Russia official after another. "That is the spirit of fh Olympics," said Los Angele City Councilman Donald D. L renzen. The Lake Placid team, though virtually certain of su cess since they, had no riv candidate, admitted they fe relieved when Killanin a nounced the result of the vo ing. "After all, we could not b sure," said Senator Rona Stafford, one of the Lake Plac delegation. "There has been lot of talk in the IOC of scrap ing the Winter Olympics alt gether, and we set out to co vince the committee that could run the Games well." The last time the Winte Olympics were staged in th United States was in 1960 Squaw Valley, Calif. Th United States has not hosti the Summer Olympic's sini Los Angeles staged them 1932. Working behind tusby are ijah Davis and Jerry Eck- ood. How much Eckwood ays will be dictated by how ell he learns his assignments '· Thursday. Said Broyles We'll jjst have to wait and e i f ' h e knows what to do." Broyles concluded, "We Imc nother good practice. I was eased with the middle dril the defense is doing belter lainst the run now." The practice ended with side drill featuring non-var ty players. "We want every ne to be coached on our own fense or defense sometime uring the . day," explained royles. "It makes everyone el more a part of the team."

Tourna merit by defeating West Germa ny's Katja Ebbinghaus 6-3, 6-3 Yanks, Frisco Swap Stars NEW YORK CAP) -- Gabe atil is at it again. The president of Ihe Now lark Yankees looks like evcry- ody's grandfather, smiling and Iways affable. He is also al- rays ready to make a trade. Paul has remolded the ball luh with a series of major rades, the latest one Tuesday vhen he swapped Bphby Murer to the San Francisco Giants or Bobby Bonds, in an cx- 'hange of two of baseball's top lutfielders. The Bonds - Murcer swap nade on the first day of the inter - league trading period, ranks as one of the biggest one :or-one deals ever made in terms of the names -involved. T h e Yankees' Nationa League rivals, the New York Mets, also made a deal Tues day, sending reserve catcher Duffy Dyer to the Pittsburgh Pirates for outfielder Gene Clines. In the clay's other trade the Milwaukee Brewers sen second baseman John Vukovicl to the Cincinnati Reds for left landed pitcher Pat Osburn. Bonds and Murcer both are 28 years old, both earn more han $100.000 and both arrived i the major leagues at about he same time. Bonds was called up to the Slants midway through the 1968 ieason and hit a grand slam lome run in his first major eague game.' He set a major eague record by opening 11 games with home runs in 1973. Murcer came up for keeps in 969 and his 140 career homers Ashe Upset TEHRAN, Iran -- American Arthur Ashe, seeded seventh was upset 1-6,-6-7 by Andre\ Pattison of Rhodesia in the sec ond round of the $100,000 Arya mehr Pro Tournament. placed him 17th on the Yankees' alt-lime list.

Conversely, the Mets-Pirated deal was not for long-ball hitters. Neither Clines nor Dyer managed a home run last season or hit for high average. Clines batted .225 in 107 games with Pittsburgh, appearing:'"cs- tly as a pinch-hitter, whils Dyer played sparingly behind Mets backstops 'Jerry Grflte and Ron Hodges, and compiled a .211 per centage. Vukovich saw limited duty with the Brewers and will'* be assigned to Cincinnati's ;in- dianapolis farm club. Osburn collected'a 2-3 record and. 2.52 earned run average with 'Indianapolis, earning a- brief trial with the parent club but finishing with no decisions. · · -. " : .'
