Dewey Boel ter drew a free pass to first base, Bahr singled, sending Boelter to third and he scored as Bob Rausch grounded out. In the pitching department Del Kopf and Bob Camp were on the mound for Nebraska. They gave up three hits. Kopf whiffed six and Camp struck out three. Kopf got credit for the win. ( The Husker machine picked up a little more momentum in the second game on Saturday. Crrv Opens Up They started to work in the opening frame on a single by Bob Diers. Then Beltin' Bob Cerv opened the heavy artillery for Nebraska as he made the little piece of horsehide clear the fence for his first homer of the day. This made the scoreboard read 2-0. During the early inning Pitcher Ernest Behne keut the Lutherans well in check. His control was effective with strike outs and pop outs keeping Lu ther in hand. The Lutherans got their only run in the third inning. Behne issued a free pass. The second batter up sacrificed himself, ad vancing the first man to second. Then a double off Behne drove in the Luther tally. Scoreless Until Fifth Tony Sharpe's squad were held scoreless until the fifth in ning. Then Bob Jensen got things rolling with a smashing double.

Campbell sizzled the century Press Box Views ! BY KIMON KARABATSOS (Sports Editor, Daily Nebraskan) What did last semester's Daily Nebraskan mean you What does this semester's Daily Nebraskan mean to youi Last semester we were because of our half -sized paper. The tabloid was too small and consequently we had to cut many stories and the hstories that did get in were times these were abndged. This semester we have been able to print more stories. The one reason being a large newspaper which is twice the size of the tabloid. We have coverage of more sports. Maybe you just want to major athletics at our University. Perhaps you don't want full coverage on intra-mural sports as vell as golf, tennis, gymnastics, swimming and the rest. There are more students engaged in intra-mural sports than any other competition in the University curicuhim. These so called "minor"- sports have more students compet ing than there are in the major sports. Take all of these "minor" sports and add up you will find that a large number of students compete m them. To some of the students, the only sports whichl amount to anything are football, basketball and track; but there is a very large minority who follow these supposedly "minor" sports with a great deal of interest. It is only fair to them that the Daily Nebraskan be allowed to keep its present size. It means a lot more work for the staff as well as the reporters students, like you, who give a few of their hours to you every day. The re porters are not rewarded in any way for their work. They report to the office at 1 p.m. and are out on their beat for at least four hours a day and quite often longer." Sometimes they miss their supper hour and work on into the evening just so you can game when you pick up your How much is this costing you" Two-thirds of one penny. Not very darn much when you compare it to the cost of the state papers. Yes, state papers, but there are not four full pages of Univer sity news in any one issue. April 26, you will be given a ballot and a chance to vote "yes" and continue the present size newspaper. If you have decided to vote "no," think it over and I'm sure that you will change your mind, Your Daily Nebraskan one-third cents an issue a paper. Even though it means more work for us and no raise in pay, the sports desk is unanimous in their opinion for keeping the Daily Nebraskan a "newspaper" size student publication. Lutherans, Sig T 1 WW t The Lutheran Student Association blasted its way to a second consecutive Softball win Friday, trouncing the University YMCA by a score of 20-0. The Lutherans cracked out 18 safe hits in amassing their total while the two Lutheran chuckers, Aden and Stauffer held the losers to two. The win establishes the victors as a firm favorite to cop the Interdenominational honors. Pitcher Ray Bierber of Sigma Gamma Epsilon hurled his mates to their second consecutive vic tory Friday, the Sig Gams win ning 10-2 over the City YMCA. Bierber pitched two hit ball in chalking-up his second win of the season while the Sig Gam sluggers clouted YM chucker, Stewart Minnick for 11 safeties. Yelkin of the Sig Gams banged out a home-run in the 5th inning with the bases empty. Bierber hurled a no-hit, no run tame in the first Sig Gam rame of the year against ASMiS. Due to the unavaila bility of the score books, pro per publicity was not given the feat at that time. The final score was 10-0. Defending Denominational champion, Jnter Varsity kept its slate clean in taking their sec ond contest of the year, dropping the Presbyterian Student House by a 7-3 score. Lloyd Taplett, on the mound for the I-V men, al lowed the Presbys only four hits, one of which was a home run with one man on in tiie first inning by Glenn Beerline, Pres by third-sacker. Brown Palace Wins Brown Palace grabbed its first win of the year being handed an 8-6 win over Delta Sigma Phi by virtue of eight Delta Sig er rors. Only one of the eight Pal ace runs were earned, but the final score doesn't care how the runs were made. Keeping the Delta Sig batting silenced was Palace chucker, Mel Williams, whe allowed the losers only three hits, including Wilbur As ter's home-run on the first pitch in 9.5 last year and anchored the " Colorado half-mile Telay team to a record with a scorch ing 21.1 220 around the final curve. ' ..46.9 Quarter ' , , Bolen's 46.9 time in the quar ter-mile against: McKenley, then recognized as the world cham pion, established new school, track and regional marks which should stand the test of time for many years. Thrills like these should be repeated in all divisions this year. East Denver high , school, a perennial winner, is apparently coming to Boulder loaded to the hilt with talent in the prep Class AA slot. A host of Class A prep pers will be on hand, and the college division should see one of the finest fields in history. Team scores are counted solely on the basis of the relay events, but winners in the special events are awarded medals. . to forced to cut out many stories just the bare facts and many been able to give you better read stories concerning the the athletes out for them and get a full report on the late paper in the morning. there are more pages in the will be costing you one and fourth as much as a staie Gams Repeat; ilT WW.- 1 Xn.tiittor hurled by Williams. McDonald was behind the plate for the winners. Wallick and Eiberger were the battery for the losers. The Lilies started their soft ball season off the right note as they downed Nebraska Co-op in a 7-2 ball game and the Skunks did likewise in beating Alpha Sigma Phi, 15-10. Newman Club gained their first win in two contests in a wild scoring affair with Corner House. Final score was 22-14 for the Catholics. Baptists Again The Baptists scored their sec ond upset victory of the season and kept their record perfect by downing the Methodist Student House by a 10-7 score. The Bap tists, supposedly a sure bet for seventh place in the Denom league, dropped the Newman Club 9-8 in their opener and are currently tied for top h o n or s with the Lutherans and Inter Varsity. The Wheels amassed 28 points in their first contest of the year as they swamped Dorm A, 28-11. The final game of the day saw Practical Arts getting forfeit from the Air Cadets.
