Outdoor Report liy AUBRKY SHKl'HLKD TIMES Outdoor Writer White River proved a worthy · opponent for intrepid duck boat floal trippers Peggy Frinzc-ll and Grant Hall, who battled white water, rocks, slumps, and downed trees to a draw--and survived--on a Sunday flout - near Thompson Gap. Handicapped by a lack ot appropriate equipment, the two river enthusiasts did not catch a fish, even though they several times dipped up a boatful of river water, apparently intending to snatch out a finny freak that way. In a rematch, Peggy reportedly rescued a cane pole from the waves, prnbaly expecting to get some line on the nexl Irip. Several bass Iruck Teeny Twisters fished by Bill Kennan. Some longear sunfish and green sunfish also fell for Bill's 1 angling tricks. Becky Hum: phrcy made Bill's fishing easy by doing a lot of paddling while ; he was casting. Bob and Allison Kramer enjoyed the same While River floal trip, but did more scenery-watching than fishing. Afler-sunset swimming attracted Tim and Susan Bull to the chilly waters of the upper White River last Sunday evening. The very wet floaters leaving the low-walcr bridge at the time when the Bulls were · about to swim were amazed to think that anyone would voluntarily enter the water so late in the day.

WOOLWORTH'S G o r d o n Davis reports thai Jay Taylor McAfee Says The Team Has To Come First Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Friday, Oct. 25, 1974 FAVETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS 1 CSU Coach Arslaniait Says It Will Be A Shame If Willie Miller Left Off All-Star Lists Hal McAfee started at line- cker last year for the Arkanas Razorbacks, but since the .art of the '74 season has seen mch less action. Most players wild be bitter or defeated by uch a turn of events, but the unior letterman is neither. '1 don't worry about whethei r not I start," he says. "I ave faith in the coaches. They now who grades out the best ncl who should gel the starling ssignment." McAfee was plagued by nee injury sustained in spring rills. The knee required siu 1 ,ery, but Hal was able lo prac ice from the beginning of fal rills, The knee injury could hi a good excuse for the fact Ilia "VIcAfee has not played as mucl his year, but the pre-law majo .enies that. "I did a lot of extra worl or my knee, and didn't let the njury get me down," he noted. 'I can't say that my knee has ·cept me out of Hie starling ineup. Bill Burns and Dennis Winslon are great players. 1 can't take anything away from hem." After three losses in six panics the Razorbacks look to je all but out of Ihe Southwest Conference race, but the Little lock Catholic product has not ost faith yet: "I Ihink we are slill a good team. We can come Dack and win the rest of them." McAfee said he woujd like to personally take part in the resurgence of t h e Razorbacks if it indeed happens. However, lie would not feel hurt if he does not, "1 have faith that we can make a comeback. I would like lo start; there's no question aboul thai. But it wouldn't bother me if I didn't, as long as we win. The team comes first as far as I'm concerned," stated the 205-pound linebacker. The former all - star- wrestler is only a junior, and will return next year. McAfee is the kind of player who will put out 100 per cent this year and next year regardless of whether he gets a starting assignment. He is a great asset to the team, both on the field and off. FORT COLLINS. COLO-- yards and seven touchdowns, Quick now, guess who has including a Ram record of three caught more career passes than scoring receptions in CSU's 65- active collegiate 17 win over Nevada-Reno here ny other receiver. If your answer Colorado State Willie Miller, you were right. to be the nation's lop collegiate The 27-year-old Vietnam War receiver," said second-year veteran lias know he is Ihe finest I have varsity career"at CSU for 2,171 ever seen or C9ached during pusses during been 29 ast Salurciay. "Without a doubt, Willie has Ram Coach Sark Arslanian. "I my years in this business." Miller, the Rams' co-caplain and leading receiver the past two seasons, credits his teammates for his success. "There is no way 1 could have caught those passes without help from those other guys," he said. A winner of the Soldier's Medal h a s and Silver Star, Miller not earned much recognition for his football feats, except for all-Western Athletic Conference honorable nention notices. "It will be a shame if he s ignored this year," added Arslanian. "Willie is a tremendous asset to our program on- and-off the field. He is a very remarkable young man." The holder ot all 11 CSU pass receiving records, Miller has not been disappointed about the lack of recognition. "I am not disappointed. Not at all. 1 feel I'm more a team player than an individual," the Birmingham, Ala., native added. .Nobody really knows how fast Miller is. As he has said: "Times aren't really important, I just want lo be fast enough to get open." Open he lias been as Miller has the nation's best average per reception at 21.3 yards per catch while performing on the country's No. 1 passing team. CSU is averaging 252.3 y a r d s p e r game with completions and 16 touchdowns. "Willie's statistics are really remarkable when you considei thai be is double-teamed mosl o! the time," said offensive coordinator Doug Gerhart, "anc he really knows what lo do wilh the ball once he catches it." As for the future. Millei really docs not know. He wouk like to give professional football a try, but his age is a factor. If not. he mrghl return to bis hometown lo work with the riisadvantaged after graduating from CSU. Now that we have answerct the question, maybe Willie Miller's name might become a household word United States. If across it does llv not one might wonder what it take. to receive recognition. But then does Willie Miller really can aboout fame? Field Goal Is Winning Margin Ram ay Tops Central has been taking a. lol of flathead catfish. Jay caught an eighteen pound striper Wednesday.
