Scarlett Gridders
Mueller and Adduci Score
Twice as Naglc Sparkles
By Bob Banks
(8tff Sports Writer)
Cornhusker Head Professor of
Gridology Bill Glassford put his
footballers on parade for the
second consecutive Saturday
with a fair amount of improve
ment being shown during the last
He paired his team into two
squads consisting of the Cream
and the Scarlet.
The Scarlet were In rnmplete
control of the game all the way.
During the regulation playing
time of four quarters they
crossed the goal line six times
while the Cream were held
scoreless. In an extra period the
Scarlet marked up two more
touchdowns to make the final
score read 52-0.
After the Cream had been
forced to punt twice, the Scarlet
proceeded to rack up their first
seven points. Bill Wingender had
punted to the white forty yard
line. Here Fran Nagle unwound
his arm for a 15 yard heave
to Dick Regicr who outraced the
Cream backs to the goal line. The
try for the extra point was fum
bled but Nagle cnlmy skirted
left end to make the score 7-0.
The Cream attack again bogged
down and Wingender punted to
their 47. Cm the first down a
Nagle to Regier pass put the ball
on the Cream 38. Gerry Fergu
son made a first down to the
29 Bill Mueller picked up eight
more yards. Then Nagle found
Mueller with a 21 yard effort
for his second touchdown pass
of the day. Nagle converted to
make the score 14-0.
Alert team play on both teams
halted the scoring momentarily.
Rifcnbark intercepted a Nagle
pass and Grimm recovered a
Scarlet fumble to squelch the
However, the Red Sweatshirts
w eren't to be denied In the third
quarter. Verl Scott recovered a
Cream fumble on their 22 yard
line. On the first down Clark
scooted for seven yards. Then
Mueller got his second touch
down of the day by circling right
end for 15 yards. The attempted
point was no good and the score
was 20-0.
After the Cream again failed
to do anything with the ball the
Scarlet took over the ball on
the Cream 40 yard line. With
Mueller, Ferguson, and Schreiner
reeling off some nice gains the
Scarlet ground attack began to
function. Schreiner bulled his
way through right tackle for the
fourth marker of the day. Nagle
again failed to convert and the
Scarlet led 26-0.
The Scarlets took little time
in going to work in the fourth
quarter. Dick Goeglein recovered
a Cream fumble on the 36 yard
line Nagle then uncorked a
thirty vard spiral to Paynich
down to the Cream 6 yard line.
Nick Adduci then took two
cracks at the Cream line and
went over from 3 yards out.
Nagle's conversion was good giv
ing the Scarlet a 33-0 advant
age. The Cream's were still unable
to make any substantial gains.
They mixed running and passing
but just didn't have the right
After an exchange of punts the
Scarlet scored their last touch
down of regulation play. It was
all ground work this time. The
Scarlet took over on the Cream
"8 yard line. Mueller picked up
eight yards. Ferguson added
seven to make a first down on
the Cream 13. Then Nagle made
it to the two yard line on a
quarterback sneak. Adduci went
through center for the marker.
Nagle's conversion was jwd ana
the regulation game ended i0-u.
Glassford allowed his boys to
go into an extra period. This
was meat for the point hungry
Through penalties the Scarlet
were forced to start deep irr their
own territory. Mueller made
runs of 13, 10, 11, and 5 yards
to lead the Scarlet assault. Fcr-

JOINS PRO RANKS Mike DiBiase, Cornhusker heavy-weight
wrestling standout, has announced his decision to enter the profes
sional bone-bending circuit. Prof. Adam Krieger, Lincoln rassling
impressario hopes to have the Scarlet stalwart in his fairgrounds
arena in the near future. Mike has consistently figured in the Big
Seven conference heavyweight title picture and captained the Ne
braska squad during the 1949-50 mat campaign.
52-0 Saturday
RON CLARK The sophomore
jinx didn't bother, this little
"piece of fireball." He was one
of the best backs in the Big
Seven last year. Clark is the
most versatile Husker back
with his fine running, passing
and punting.
guson assisted with spurts of 7
and 5 yards. Then, with the ball
resting on the Cream 17 yard
line, Ferguson bowled over right
tackle and crossed the goal line.
No conversion was attempted.
After something of a see-saw
battle Art Bauer intercepted a
Cream pass on the Cream 32.
With Ron Clark showing the
form that made him one of the
best sophomores in the Big Seven
last year the Scarlet again added
to their total. A varied attack
was the reason for last touch
down with everyone contribut
ing. Clark made the last touch
down of the day from 4 yards
Coach Glassford stated that the
Cornhuskers had shown im
provement over the previous
scrimmages. He thought the run
ning and passing were better. He
feels thought that there is still
plenty of room for improvement
in downfield blocking and tack
ling. Glassford would mention
no particular outstanding player
of the day but he continued to
say that all of the boys are will
ing and eager to play football
for Nebraska.
Eckcrt Wins
Harry Eckert of Lincoln be
came the 1950 table tennis
champion of the University of
Nebraska Thursday night. Eck
ert defeated John O'Neal in the
finals, four games to one.
Eckert took an early lead bv
copping the first game. 21-19.
but O'Neal evened the best four
out of seven series by taking the
second game. 23-21.
The champion led all the wav
in winning the third game bv
a score of 21-17. but the fouilh
was a different storv.
O'Neal took a commanding
in that contest and held a 15-10
margin at one staye. Eckert
wielded a blazing paddle from
that point, however, and shot
by to win his third. 21-17.
The fifth and final game was
a nip and tuck affair all the wav.
Both men held scant margins at
one time or another, but the
champion , rallied at the end to
edge tre firing ehalleimer. 21-19.
Oklahoma Loses
Most of Team
The Oklahoma Sooner football
team, defending Big Seven and
Sugar Bowl kings, have their
work cut out fur them during
spring practice. The Oklahomans
lost their entire fust eleven ex
cept fu'lback Leon Heath. Many
valuable reserves were also lost.
The spring drill will be largely
to decide the top 55 boys on the
squad and the positions they
will play.

Another intramural basketball
season is just about over. Only
the All-University playoffs in
volving the four league cham
pions remain to be played, be
fore the round ball is put away
for another year.
Your editor would like to take
this opportunity to congratulate
the Intramural Department on
a job well done, on producing
basketball season this school has
perhaps the finest intramural
ever known.
Some highlights of thi 'best'
season as this writer sees it
are as follows:
There have been fewer injur
ies in the game this year than
in any previous years, and not
to restrict this only to the cage
sport, there have been by far
fewer injuries for the whole I-M
season, thus far.
Added precautions were taken
this year by the I-M department
to insure a safer year for the
sports' participants. In basket
ball specifically, the demanding
of wearing of floor shoes has cut
down on the many foot injuries.
Your writer would like to see
the University allow the I-M
department funds with which
to supply guards for glasses.
Judging from the extent of the
injuries on the floor this year,
broken glasses seem to have
caused the majority of them.
The department realizes this
fact, too, and Is working on a
Referees Improved
Discussing a sore spot in a lot
of fans' thinking but neverthe
less true, the referees in this
year's contests were much im
proved over the years previous..
The I-M staff can be congrat
ulated for having selected cap
able men to do the officiating
and instructing these men with
the know-how.
Congratulations are also in
store for those men who did the
officiating during the season. A
job well done, men.
Sportsmanship seemed at Us
highest this year. Only a few of
4hi to-be expected skirmishes
spoiled the scheduled contests.
The boys seemed to be playing
for the fun of it this year, which
after all is what intramurals are
So once again a tip of the hat
to all responsible for a very suc
cessful basketball season. May
the ensuing campaigns be even
When the final stages of the
basketball season get under way
with the All-University playoffs
this week, four of the newly
crowned divisional champions
will be vieing for the top honor.
Alpha Tau Omega and Sigma
Gamma Epsilon, respective
champions of the fraternity "A"
league and Independent league,
are currently tied for first place
in the AU-U ratings. Both are
undefeated this year and possess
powerful scoring machines. The

Lutheran Rally Falls Short
In Losing Finals, 41-49
By Bill Mundell
The Newman Club is the 1950
Interdenominational basketball
champion of the University. The
Catholics won that honor Friday
night by running over a good
Lutheran outfit to the tune of
The game was not really as
close as the score would indicate,
as the winners were led by Jack
Wallentine, Bill Griffin, and
Jack Bcechnm made bucket after
bucket. All told, these three men
scored all but six of the New
man Club points, Wallentine get
ting the most with 18.
The scoring story was the
same for the Lutherans, too.
Three men. Glen Johnson,
Woody Bohn, and Lee Stauffer,
scored all the losers' markers,
Johnson getting 17.
Late Rally Fails
A late Lutheran rally closed
the gap from a 46-32 score to a
46-40 score but time ran out on
the 1 e s e r s, and Wallentine
bagged a two-pointer to ice the
Instrumental In this Lu
theran rally was Glen John
son, who netted all of the los
ers' last seven points, six on
beautiful long shots from the
corners. Stauffer had started
the uprising with a one-hand
push shot from the circle.

For a few moments in this
rally it appeared that the Catho
lics might fall apart as their
ball handling grew weird, to say
the least, but time and Wallen
tine were on their side to pull
them through.
Beecham Hot
Jack Beecham started the
Newman ball rolling at the start
of the game as he chalked up
two quick baskets to give his
mates a 4-0 lead. The Lutherans
stormed back, however, on goals
by Stauffer and Bohn. This was
to be the last time the losers,
would be that close in the con
test. Mike LaTispa dropped one in
on a set shot, Beecham got
loose under the hoop for an
other, and Bill Griffin potted
the first of his beautiful hook
shots to give the leaders a 10-4
lead with only three minutes
The tempo slowed consider
ably for the rest of the half but
not Beecham, as he poured the
rest of an evening's total of 11
through the hoops. This was to
be the last scoring by Beecham
for the rest of the game.
Wallentine, at halftime, had
only three points to his credit,
one, a free throw just as the
halftime horn sounded. Half-

The second half was person
ally taken over by Griffin and
Wallentine who together ac
counted for 22 of the 24 Catho
lic points scored. Wallentine
was by far the star as he poured
ten points through the hoops be
fore any of his mates could arch,
the ball through.
In fact, the third quarter
scoring read like this: Jack Wal
lentine, 10; Lutherans, 6.
Lanspa broke through for an
other goal and then Griffin went
to town .
With a hook shot that was Im
possible to stop, he upped the
winners' total four more points,
waited while Wallentine scored
three and then added five more
markers, four on the same hook.
Not Idle
Meanwhile, however, the Lu
therans were not idle. With Bohn
and Johnson at the helm, they
were matching point for point
with the Catholics.
Bohn, who had set a new
University scoring mark of 38
points in his previous game,
showed how it was done, as
he sent impossible shots swish
ing through the nets. On set
shots, it was a sure two points
with Bohn.
The Newman Club defense
tightened with seven minutes to
go allowing themselves to grab
a 14 point margin, setting the
stage for the closing Lutheran

The Newman Club had earned
the right to meet the Lutherans
in the finals by walloping Inter

score of 53-43.
