The Huskers' end situation,
which may be called "acute," if
one is speaidng in relative terms,
ian't any more so that way than
is Missouri's or Oklahoma's, in all
Missouri was plucked cleaner
than a singed hen when Blaine
Currence, Stillman Rouse and the
two Orfs were iost. Right there
went the four best ends the Tigers
had, with only reserves Norvalle
Wallach and Frank Amelung left.
Wallach is 6-3 tall and weight
204, and will probably be Jimmy
Starmer's main aid in catching
Paul Christ man's passes next fall.
Bob Steuber, a 190 pound fresh
man, who has played some time
in the backfield, and who i a
sprinter in addition, may get one
of the starting positions. Any way
you look at it, though, the Tigers
have only two experienced men
and men who didn't play much at
that. It will be interesting to see
what Paul the Chrissie can do
without his ends.
Oklahoma lost Frank Ivy, John
Shirk and Alton Coppage, three
of the best ends in the conference,
but they're not quite in at bad a
fix as Missouri. Two giant ends,
Louis "Tree Top Sharpe" and Lyle
Smith, who played a little as
sophomores last year, and got in
some competition may be the regu
lars. Tom Stidham, though, is try
ing Bill Jennings, a very capable
back, and Cliff Speegle, an out
standing center, at end. That indi
cates either that Stidham thinks
the end situation is pretty acute,
or that the Sooners have backs
and centers to spare. What with
Matthews, Jacobs, Martin and :
few more returning in the back
field, and with Marsee and Wood
back as centers, the Sooner coach
can at least afford to experiment
during spring drills.
Ray Prochaaka and Fred Pres
ton, two major lettermen return
ing for the Huskers, have been
playing regularly for the Harvard
squad, and look like the starters
next fall. The Husker ends, with
the exception of Bob Ludwick, lack
speed, and the coaching staff has
been shifting the ends around fast
and furiously to find someone to
pair up with the ex-Lincoln high
player, who turned in a good de
fensive game Saturday.

Harvards, but the Red guard
couldn't tie the score, as just be
fore Biff Jones sent the two teams
to the showers.
One drive halted.
The Yale firsts started against
the Harvard seconds, and with
Harry Hopp and Vike Francis
playing the leading roles, got to
the Reds, but were stopped for
downs there. Dale Bradley, tho,
punted into the stiff wind for the
Eli's, and the ball went out of
bounds on the 15.
Harry Hopp from that point
pitched one to Bob Kahler who
got the first Yale touchdown, then
kicked the extra point.
Later in the same period after
Bradley had kicked out of bounds
on his own 42 the Eli's started
their second scoring drive. A pass
from Hopp to Bus Knight, and
two consecutive first downs by
plunging Vike Francis, who was
ripping things up, put the ball on
the Reds' 8.
From that point Mr. Kahler
went into action again, and scored
on a reverse. Hop padded the sec
ond extra point.
The Biffer sent in hia first Har
vard team against the Yale sec
onds, and early in the period Butch
Luther got away for a 25 yard
run to the Eli 36 for the Har
vards. Don Rubottom passed to
him for a first down on the Z6,
another pass took it to the 18
and Wayne Blue made it a first
and ten on the 14. Blue couldn't
get his hands on a bad pass from
center, and Willard Bunker recov
ered it on the 20 for the Reds to
stop the first threat.
John Thompson punted out on
his own 42 three plays later
Luther got two yards on a reverse
then took the ball from Blue on
a reverse through tackle and sped
40 yards for the first Harvard
touchdown. Alfson made the extra
Hold for downs.
The second Harvard score came
after the Yales had held the Reds
for downs on the four yard line
Don Rubottom had punted over
the goal, and he returned John
Thompson's punt back to the
Yale's 45. Two Rubottom passes
were knocked down, then Wayne
Sindt, subbing for Walt Luther,
whipped around end on a reverse
to the 18. Rubottom went to the
14, but a fumble put the ball back
on the 27. Rubottom then shot one
toward Ray Prochaaka in the end
