By Kimon Karabatsos
(Sports Editor, Daily Nebraskan)
Coach Tony Sharpe's hard-hitting batters pounded
out a 6-3 victory over the Kansas State Wildcats Tues
day afternoon in the first of a two game series and took
over the lead of the Big Seven conference baseball race
by a half game over idle Oklahoma.

Score in First
Nebraska scored their first run

Hayes had flied out to left, Bob
Diers hit a pop up in front of
the plate and made it to sec

K-S Takes Lead
Kansas State came back in

short lived as the power of
Husker batters began to show.
Powley flied out to center be

Seven Records In Danger At

record and seven Kansas Relays
standards will be imperiled here
Saturday when top track ath
letes from the Southwest and
Midwest unravel the twenty
fifth annual show at 1:15 p. m.
in Memorial stadium.
Kansas, the host school, will
be involved in a three-cornered
clash with Michigan and Texas
A & M, in a co-feature of the
meet's most brDlant baton field,
the Four-Mile relay.
The Jayhawks, y th Pat Bow
ers, their terrific half-milor, con
tributing a 4:16 No. 3 carry,
smashed the Texas Relays rec
ord to bits two weeks ago, with
a blazing 17:20.9 performance.
Illinois' old mark was 17:40.1.
4.S Seconds Off
It should be noted that Rill
Easton's troupe was only :04.8
seconds off the American record
of 17:16.1 hung up by Indiana's
iron-legged foursome of Mel
Trutt, Jimmy Smith, Tom Deck
ard and Don Lash, at the 1937
Penn Relays. The Kansas' per
formance also was far under
their own Relay carnival mark
of 17:37.8, which that same Illi
nois team of Bill Gould, H .C.
Garrison, Bob Woolsey, and Paul
Evans erected here in 1931.
' There is only one older record,
Cy Leland's :9.4 figure in the
100, on the Mt. Oread books.
And the Jayhawks figure to do
better. Anchor-man Bob Karnes,
one of the nation's better milers,
traveled only 4:20.8 in the anchor
leg at Texas. Under pressure it
is a good bet he can better his
all-time low of 4:16.5.
He probably will be obliged to
do so Saturday if the Jayhawks
are to win. Running anchor for
Michigan will be Don Ewen, the
nation's premier sophomore dis
tance ace. The young Wolverine
already has kayoed records in a
march through the Big Ten In
door season. He set a new con
ference standard of 9:07.2 for the
Two-Mile and bettered even this
in a dual against Wisconsin with
a V:08. performance. He
thumped Don Gehrmann, Wis
consin's great two-time NCAA
mile king, 200 yards in the
Western conference cross-country
chase last fall.
Fast Team
Running in front of him will
be two more sophomores, Charles
Whiteaker and Aaron Gordon,
and a senior, Justin Williams, all
capable hands. The latter wan

Two-Mile. Whiteaker was third

Nebraska's last home run came
off the bat of Powley as he sent
the pellet over the center field
fence. Mladovich struck out and
Reitmeier forced the next two
batters to ground out to short.
Vrbka was a little wild in the
seventh as he vllowed two run
ners to get to first on balls.
Schumaker grounded out to
Hayes. Dave Bremner was safe
on first with a single and then
went to second on Cerv's error.
Reitmeier barely caught the
ball on the end of his bat to get
a fluke double into left field to
score Bremner from second.
Bob Remner grounded, out to
third and Scannell and Specht
walked. Vrbka forced Johnson
to fly out to short The seventh
produced one run for the Wild
cats and ended their scoring for
the day.
Double Play

NU Tennis Squad
Bows flo K-Stafe
By Bob Banks
(Staff 8porU Writer)
The Cornhusker racketmen
found the flavoring of their open
ing tennis contest a little bitter
They were forced to their
knees by a determined band of
Kansas State Wildcats who won
six out of seven matches to rec
ord a final score of 6-1.
A handicap to both- squads
was the state of the weather
which forced all matches but
one to be played in the limited
quarters of the Coliseum.
Victories in Singles
The Kansans took a unanimous
verdict in the singles event by
emerging victorious in all five
matches. They simply clawed
they way to the win column with
their slashing services, arrow
straight shots, and slamming vol
leys. Among the Huskers looking
best in the singles were Andy
Bunten and Bob Radin.
Bunten won his first set and
put up a strong argument for the
other two. His service is im
proving and he- possesses a sharp
forehand. Only a sophomore,
Bunten could make a name for
himself in tennis before he hangs
up his racket.
Radin Fights
Bob Radin also put up a good
in the half.
The Cadets will be anchored
by J. D. Hampton, the South
west's top distance horse, who
turned a 4:15.0 closing leg
against Kansas at Austin. They
own two other capable milers
in Julian Herring and John Gar
many. Here are the other Relay
marks which are even bets to
feel the axe:

he has during the early work

treatment in the doubles. They

Wildcats to accept a tie in this
The men turning in the win
ning performance for Nebraska
were Radin and Jerry Mage3.
They were in the driver's seat
all the way, taking the nod in
two straight sets. The two men
work well together and have
good timing and coordination for
so early in the season. They also
defeated an Alumni team last
Saturday to post the Husker's
only victory in that contest.
K-SUte Favorites
The Huskers need not feel too
badly over the rough handling
accorded them by Kansas State.
The Kansans have been estab
lished as one of the favorites for
Big Seven honors. They have a
team star-studded with sopho
mores who. will 'be even more
dangerous in the next two years.
After the matches were over
Coach Slezak was still quite well
satisfied with the overall show
ing of his men. They have been
ened will depend on how hard
Wisconsin's great Don Gehrmann
is pushed. The defending cham
pion has broken that figure four
times, the latest being the 4:09.5
in the Bankers Mile.
Top favorite in a brilliant hieh
jump field will be Kansas State's '
Virgil Severns. He beat the pres
ent Kansas Relays record by a
fraction at Texas with a leap of
6-8 V4.
Denver's Jerome Biffle is the
major threat to Gordon's ancient .
broad jump mark. He spanned
25-7 at the Colorado Invita
tional Indoor trials two weeks
fltfn This ia S Inrhps hpvnnH the i
present Mt. Oread mark. Biffle
will have to be at his best to
beat such worthies as Herb Hos
kins of Kansas State, and Okla
homa A 8c M's John Voight.
Bill Carroll, of Oklahoma, and
Minnesota's Harry Cooper, de
fending Relays pole vault kings,
will at least graze Bryan's stand
ard. They both hit 14-0 here
last year and Carroll has done
an inch better.

Play Opens
Intramural softball opened
with a bang Monday evening
with nine games inaugurating
the season.
Ted Kanamine lined a home
run with a mate aboard in the
first inning in the Student
Union's first contest to give the
Union a 2-0 lead over the City
YMCA, but they couldn't hold
it and lost a close one, 5-6. The
Y men came right back in the
first with two runs of their own
when Union pitcher Eddie Mi
yahara forced two men in from
third on bases on balls. A run
in the third gave them the lead
and they never fell behind.
Sigma Gamma Epsilon had
things all their own way Mon
day as they walloped A.S.M.E.
by the score of 10-0. Due to
the unavailability of the score
books today, further details of
the contest were not to be had.
Tomorrow's paper will carry a
full account of all games not
presented in full in today's issue.
I.V. Wins
The Interdenomination de
fending champions, InterVarsity,
kept on the winning track by
handing the University YMCA a
15-5 setback.
Other Denom contests saw the
Lutherans smacking the Meth
odists, 9-2, and the Baptists up
setting Newman Club by the
score of 8-7.
Preby House went on a scor
ing spree in trouncing Cotner
House by the score of 20-9.
Seven errors marred the play of
both teams, Cotner getting their
nine runs on only two hits. The
Presbys' batting eye was not
stilled, however, as they banged
out 21 safeties.
Al Short and Bob Shuler were
the hitting stars for the winners,
getting five for five and four for
five, respectively.

There wiU be a lot of balks

major league season if the spring
