NO Edges Buffs, 66-65;
Seven New Records Meade
Bob Berkshire Sets New
Marks in Hurdle Events
(SMrl Kditor, Dully Nchrnnkui)
, Coach Ed Weir's trackmen
edged out the Colorado Buffalpes
Monday afternoon in Memorial
Stadium, 66-65, in a meet that
saw seven records fall by the
Nebraska thin-clads countered
for four of the new marks with
Colorado getting three, including
the relay which ended the meet
in a thrilling fashion.
Hurdler Bob Berkshire of Ne
braska and Bob Bruce were the
only double winners. The ex
Omaha Benson timber topper
clipped two-tenths of a second
off his old standard of :14.9 in
the 120 highs and four events
later, did the same in the 220
yard lows.
Berkshire won the highs in
:1 4.7 and the lows in :24.7. These
two times represent the fastest
time turned in by any Big Seven
hurdler so far this season.
Randolph Wins Jump
Ted Randolph captured the
broad jump on his last leap of
the day with a 21-7 effort. His
best jump up to then was 21-6,
halt an inch behind teammate
Jim McConnell. The Huskers
finished one-two in that event
to insure a meet victory.
George Fitzmorris came thru
with a 4:23.9 record breaking run
in the mile in a raging duel with
Husker Lee Moore. Moore had
held the lead for three laps and
the Buffalo took over the com
mand spot on the gun lap. Moore
made his challenge in the back
st-otch, but faded as the two
roundad the curve. The lithe
Coloradoan knocked six seconds
off his own record set in 1948.
Fitzmorris Close
Fitzmorris came very close to
becoming another two-event
winner, but decided to share the
blue-ribbon with two other of
his team. Milt Wiley, Wiley
Chance and Fitzmorris tied for
first in the two-mile in the slow
time of 10:19.2.
In the 100 yard dash, Harry
Meginnis was barely edged by
Bob Burke as the Buffalo turned
in a :10 second hundred. Megin
nis was leading the pack until
two-strides from the tape where
his sore leg-muscle played-out.
Meginnjs was forced to scratch
in the 220, costing Nebraska
some valuable points, but Bill
Baker came thru with a surprise
second in the 220, breaking up a
Colorado one-two finish. Bruce
took his second win with a :22.3
Loyal Hurlbert, pushed by
Harold Kopf, set a new standard
in the 440. Hurlbert covered the
quarter in :49.7, lowering the
old mark of :50.4 set by Bolen
of Colorado in 1947.
Lee Moore, after his gruelling
race in the mile, won the half
mile by beating Ken Jacobs to
the tape in 2:00.4 five seconds
off the record set by Bolen.
Jim Allen won the shot with
a 49-5 put. Charley Toogood
was good for third with a 47-5 lk
Sees Gels New Mark
Wayne Sees added almost an
other live feet to his mark in
the discus as he spun the platter
143-3V4 feet. He held the old
mark of 138-11, set in 1948.
McConnell added a point to the
Husker cause by taking third.
The strongest competition came
in the javelin where Ray Magsa
men and Les Gardner battled it

on his last throw with a record

the old record by a half inch.
In the high jump, Joe Gold
tound his golden opportunity for
a blue ribbon, taking first place
with a 6-2 jump. Huskers Dick
Meisner and Tom Mead tied for
second at 6-1.
Don Cooper's 13-4 vault record
set in 1948 still stands as the
current vaulters failed to better
the mark. Leonard Kehl tied
with Bill Hannum and Clare
Gregg at 13-3 for first.
Cooper, after having won the
Drake Relay's vault crown last
week with a record breaking 14-1
performance was bothered by a
re-occurance of a shoulder in
jury. He re-injured his shoulder
last Saturday as he won the
Drake event.

brought the meet to a close Vin

Shaffer and Charles Temple

oldest record on the books.

Pole Vault
By Knox Jones.
(Staff Mportu Wrltrr.
r Don Cooper, Nebraska's junior
pole vaulter, scored the only
Husker victory and topped the
only record Saturday afternoon
at the annual running of the
Drake Relays in Des Moines.
Cooper outlasted Don Laz, de
fending champion, and Bill Car
roll, Big Seven indoor and out
door king, as tie cleared 14-1 to
be break the 10 year-old-mark of
Beefus Bryan of Texas by 1516

On his second attempt at the
record height, Cooper brushed
the bar slightly but it held. Nei
ther Laz, who has cleared 15 feet
unofficially this year, nor Car
roll, who cleared 14-5 last week
at the Kansas Relays, could
equal the Nebraskan's effort on
the muddy' runway.
Cooper failed to receive a sin
gle vote for the outstanding ath
lete award at the 41st renewal
of the Drake carnival. The poll
of newsmen was taken before
the completion of the vault.
Shuttle Team Close.
Nebraska's 480 yard shuttle
hurdle relay team came within
a whisker of gaining the first
Husker relay win at Drake since
1934. Michigan Normal was
the winner over the quartet of
Ray Magsamen, Don Bedker,
Wendy Cole and Bob Berkshire
but the finish was so close it
took judges three minutes to
decide the winner.

NU Falls to Sooners
In Second Game, 8-3
The Nebraska Cornhuskers
were forced back into a tie with
the Oklahoma Sooners for the
runner-up spot in the Big Seven
baseball race because of an 8-3
shellacking handed them last
Saturday at Norman.
The Huskers were in a position
to assume sole possession of sec
ond place had they been able to
get by Oklahoma in the second
game. They won the first game
handily, 14-3.
The Nebraska batters were
completely off the beam in the
second contest. They were lucky
to manage two hits off Oklahoma
Pitcher Jim Kirk. .
Nebraska didn't manage a
single run until Harlan Powley
socked his second homer of the
two-game series with one man
on in the seventh inning.
Oklahoma's shortstop, Bob
Stephenson, ruined the Husker
hopes in the third inning. He
started the heavy artillery with
a three-run homer.
Double Steal
The Sooners added two in the
fourth when John Reddell and
Russel Hill raced home on Mor
gosh's single.
