Dallas Williams, University The atre director, who will direct Nebraska fought stubbornly, the team balance and ability of the Hoosiers. Led by All-America candidate George Taliaferro and the haul charging Harry Jagade, the In diana eleven outplayed the Husk ers in every department while running rough shod over the Me morial Stadium turf. Indiana opened the contest and advanced the pigskin to the Ne braska 25 before the Huskcr line held. But Nebraska's offense sputtered and the Hoosiers again backed the Scarlet to the goal post shadows before Cletus Fischer broke loose on a 32-yard scamper up the east sidelines to midfield. Once out of the rut, Nebraska battled the Hoosiers on even terms throughout the remainder of the first period. Jagade Scores Taliaferro, Indiana's dusky triple-threater, intercepted Del Wiegand's pass at the quarter. On four plays Coach Bo McMillin's boys had racked up three succes sive first downs and had the ball on the Husker five-yard stripe. After staging a brief goal line stand, the Huskers wilted as Jagade rammed over from a half yard out for the game's first points. Quarterback Rex Grossman's placement was good to boost the Hoosiers lead to 7-0. When both of Grossman's kick off attempts after the initial touchdown went out of bounds, the Huskers took over on the In diana 40-yard line, but the Hoo iers stymied Masterson's "T" guid ed students and took over on the 20 as Myers' kick missed the cof fin corner and rolled into the end zone. Fischer, Myers Spark Sparked by Fischer, the Husker T warmed up late in the second canto. Cletus intercepted a Hoos ier fumble on the 46 then ad vanced 39 yards on a pass from Wiegand. With only seconds re maining, James "Squat" Myers flipped at strike to Ralph Dam kroger on the two-yard line. But the gun sounded ending the half (See HUSKERS, Pace 3.)
