BY NORRIS ANDERSON. Sports Editor. (By Special Leased Wire.) IOWA CITY. Even the dull chill of this cloudy afternoon failed to cool the accurate right arm of Tom Farmer, flipping Iowa halfback, here today. Farmer unleased the heaviest aerial barrage thrown a Husker team in a decade and when the raid ceased, the Scarlet and Cream floundered in the throes of a 27-0 defeat.

An exchange of punts midway in the third quarter gave Iowa possession on the Husker 41 yard line. Slippery as a two-bit steak, Curren slithered his way 13 yards for a first down. Then fullback Uknes blasted his way over the Husker right guard for four more yards. Curren slid away for 10 yards to the 18-yard stripe and the stage was set for Farmer to toss 15 yards to the rampaging Curren on the 3-yard stripe. One brief Vvnicti thru tackle bv Curren was enough for the second Hawk marker. Big Vic Schleich, a constant power at left tackle, stopped Farmer's conversion with his chest. Score was 13-0 and Husker fans hopefully started to remin isce. The 1941 Scarlet and Cream eleven had overcome a 13-0 Hawk ye lead in'Lincoln to squeeze thru with a 14-13 decision. But it wasn't in the cards Saturday. 65 Yard Touchdown.

The Hawks offense progressed to the 35 yard stripe then Mr. Farmer took over. Farmer took the center pass, looked for a receiver, then spotted end Bill Burkett who had slipped behind the Husker secondary. A' quick cock of the wrist, a firm spiral over 25 yards of green sward, and the pigskin landed squarely in Burkett's mitts. His momentum carried him five more steps, over the double stripes See HUSKERS, Page 4 800 Attend YV, " YM Mixer Friday Over 800 students attended the big Y.W.C.A. and Y.M.C.A. mixer last Friday evening in the Union ballroom.
