First base is a slow man’s pos ition and that’s what I am. “The other infielders’ jobs are hard compared to mine. I d say my position is about medium difficulty. Sure, I have my job to do, but 90 percent of it is catching the ball. And that should be instinct. If you can’t catch the baseball, you shouldn’t be playing. ” Hawthorne is not restricted solely to first base. He is also the Aggies’ back-up catcher behind Buster Turner, a job that he said requires more work than playing first base. “Catching is rough on you,” Hawthorne said. “At first base you might be involved in almost every play, but at catcher, you are in volved in every pitch. It wears you out, but I like it. “When I’m playing catcher. I’m in control. I can set the pace of the ball game. Catchers have to know what each hitter can hit and how fast each runner can run.” Coach Tom Chandler appreciates the fact that Hawthorne has the abil ity to play two positions for the Ag- gies. “Kyle is a very valuable man, ” the Aggie coach said. “We need two good catchers on the lineup because it’s a tough position. And Kyle is a versatile athlete. He gives it all he has.” Not only is Hawthorne a defen sive leader for the Aggies, he is also a big offensive contributor. “He’s our hottest hitter,” Chan dler said. “Kyle is carrying our ball club right now. We really need 1J bat in the lineup.” In 34 trips to the plate, Ha»iij orne has had 13 hits to lead ttej gies with a .382 average i HBIs. He also has five hoi this season, just four off’thesenj record of nine set by Byron B in 1961. “You don’t ever plan homeruns,” Hawthorne saio. ift) ing to predict when he migl the 17-year-old record. “Yoiiji get into a streak where you cull the hall good — where yout confidence.” Chandler has confidencej Hawthorne’s ability toputthelj out of the park. “We have about nineg spring break,” Chandler said, ij I’d say he’ll have the recordi| those games.” ape rou suite YOU MlOH't MEED BA ft ME R ? :/ Vicl bar wor I T'5 A MIRACLE. 1 ORAL ROBERTS 5AVS THE STADIUM WILL BE READY FOR HIS C-AME5 NEXT WEEKEND/ WAIT'TIL NEXT YEAR HOUSTOM MINS Z Of S FROM R^M j khiicii QPd mdinj st, Ad ate tl is firs d No 8464151 UNIVERSITY SQUARE SHOPPING CENTER thankfu henry winkler toumamw T NOMINATED FOR 5 ACADEMY AWARDS Including Best Picture NEIL SIMON’S DAILY 7:15 9:20 II |PGn ^ .Starring RICHARD DREYFU 'MARSHA MASON J, ^ WINNER GOLDEN AWARDS FOR: BEST PICTURE (Comedy).

Some basketball coaches whose teams will participate in the NCAA playoffs have been openly critical of the early pairings, claiming that too many of the top teams have to face each other in the opening rounds. Not so Arkansas Eddie Sutton. He’s just thankful to be there. The NCAA committee heaped most of the power in the West and Mideast regionals with half of UPI’s Top 20 crowded into those re gionals, including No. 6 Arkansas. “First of all, we re just happy to have been extended an at-large hid,” Sutton said in a telephone interview Tuesday. But he admitted, “without doubt, the West and Mideast regionals have more quality teams than the other two regionals, although any one who makes it to the NCAA playoffs is a good team or it wouldn t be there. “The NCAA tou rnament commit tee has a very difficult job not only in selecting teams but also in placing at-large teams across the country,” Sutton said. “I think probably this WE’VE MOVED!
