Blocking Ragged; Adduci
Walking; Clark Returns
by Bill MuncfeU
For the third straight day of
Tain and cold, Coach Bill Glass
ford sent his Cornhuskcr grid
dcrs into a rugged practice ses
sion against the freshmen. But
Thursday's drill was anything
but pleasing to Bill and his as
sociates. Poor line blocking was caus
ing the biggest headache of the
clay with the downfield variety
not too much better. Missed as
signments by both the linemen
and the backs netted the varsity
very little yardage against the
The first part of the practice
session was spent indoor with
the boys getting an idea of In
diana's plays, then it was out in
the cold for the Huskers again.
Good at First
At first the varsity looked
pretty good against the frosh
who were wearing aprons to
protect them from injuries. Bill
Mueller, Bob Reynolds, and Ron
Clark were making pretty re
spectable runs. Clark returned
to action with the varsity today
alter a few days absence with
an upset stomach. He still is
suffering from a few bruised
The good showing by the var
sity was short-lived, though. The
frosh discarded the cumbersome
aprons and gave some really
spirited opposition. Many times
the backs were caught behind
the li'ne of scrimmage and many
more times they made only a
yard or two.
A brief flurry of passing prov
ed to be the only ground-gaining
medium during the day's activ
ity. Quartcrbt, k Fran Nagle re
ceived plenty of time to get the
pass away and hit his receivers
A bright note during the day
besides Clark's return was the
fact that Fullback Nick Adduci
has discarded his crutches and
appears to be on an early road
to recovery. At first, Adduci was
feared to be out for the season.
r Running in the backfield dur
ing Thursday's practice were
Nagle at quarter; Reynolds and
Clark at left halves, Mueller at
right half, and Curtis and Win
gender at the fullback slot.
Seeing the majority of the ac
tion in the line were Ferguson
and Regier at ends, Toogood and
Spellman at tackles, Bauer and
Strasheim at guards, and McGill
It Thursday's drill is any indi
cation, Saturday's full dress
scrimmage between the varsity
and freshmen should be quite a
battle all the way.

Freshmen Will Encounter
Varsity Eleven Saturday
By Jimmie Kostal

Between five and ten thousand
fans are expected to be on hand
at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln
Saturday for the Second Annual
Varsity-Freshmen Football game.
Rain the past few days has made
the field rather soggy, but clear
skies Friday and Saturday would
leave the Stadium field in top
Kickoff time is set for 2:00 p.
m. Observers hope the game will
give further indication as to
what's in store for the Corn husk
ers, who face one of the most
rugged schedules in the history
of the school.
The varsity, with such linemen
as Wayne Handshey, Charlie
Toogood, and Don Boll finally
rounding into shape, are expect
ed to be in top shape for the
Tussle. As usual, Franie Nagle
will lead the Husker passing
while the running chores will
be handled by Mueller, Reynolds,
Curtis, and Clark.
John Bordogne, has been
sparking the freshmen attack,
but may see limited action be
cause of a leg injury. Don Norris,
Omaha, has proved a capable re
placement. Leading a host of
former All-State backs for the
Freshmen are Ray Novak, Dick
Westin, Tom Carodine, Bobby
Decker, Bill Noble, and Cliff
Hopp. Coach Ike Hanscom's sixty-five
man squad has had a
limited amount of injuries.
The freshmen have been play
ing defensively against the Var
sity the past few days with little
success, but were considerably
hampered by the use of blocking
aprons to protect againt injuries.
Coach Iuinscom admits his boys
aren't expecting to win the game,
but they are determined to tally
against the Varsity's rugged de
In Coach Abe Stuber's books
Iova State is going to have to
make its spirit and team hustle
count for a lot against Colorado
when the two teams open the
1950 season here Saturday.
"We'll give away experience,
weight, and speed," Stuber
pointed out. "We'll have to make
our spirit and team hustle be the
equalizers in the game with a
greatly improved Colorado team.
Colorado has been wanting this
game ever since last fall. We
certainly want to win, too. So I
feel that our spirit and hustle are
going to have to be mighty im
portant if we win."
A check of the Colorado squad
revealed a total of 122-year
lettermen and only seven men
with a single year of lettered
experience. "That means a lot of fall and
spring practice sessions together,"
Stuber pointed out. "This veteran
strength will be a strong Colo
rado weapon Saturday."
Speaking of the Colorado at
tack, one thing is ccrtain-the
Buffs will take to the air. The
travel plans call for the Buffs to
leave home at 2 p.m., Friday and
arrive in Des Moines 2 hours
later in time to work at Drake
field. They'll arrive at Clyde
Wiilliams Field at noon on Satur
day. The return trip will start
immediately after the game.
Two-a-day drills were ended
for the Cyclones yesterday. In a
rugged morning session Stuber
gave its squad its last rough
workout before the opener
Rag Sports Head
Kimon Karabastos has resigned
his position as sports editor of
The Daily Ncbraskan to assume
a position on the Lincoln State
The Committee on Student
Publications will meet today to
appoint a sports editor for The
Daily Nebraskan and also fill the
vacancy of Cornhusker manag
ing editor, the position formerly
held by Sarah Fulton.
By Kimon Karabatsos
(Sports Editor, Daily Nebraskan)
Looking over the past year, it looks as though Corn
husker athletics are definitely on their way up. That state
ment has been repeated many, many times the past three
years, but this time (baring any drastic, action by Uncle
Sam) it looks like its here.
Coach Harry Good, "the Master of the Maples,"
brought two Big Seven basketball crowns to rest in the
trophy room of the Coliseum the first two consecutive
titles in Huskerdom history. With those two crowns, two
all-time greats made their debut Milton "Bus" White
head and Claude Retherford.
When sports history is finally written here at Ne
braska, historians will have found that these two players
have etched their names deep into the columns that sup
port the Coliseum. Another name that will not soon be for
gotton is Ceach Harry Good.
A long and perhaps disastrous season taces oood.
Last year, he was faced with the same problem but he
pulled through. If he can do it again, all sports writers
wil probably hang their heads in shame. If he can not do
it, you can rest assured it will be a sound warning to
Husker opponents of 1952.
On the other hand, let s take a look at the gridiron
picture. Coach J. William Glassford, the fellow that taught
Nebraskans Cornhusker spirit, is between the devil and
the deep blue sea. A victory drought set in on Huskerland
following the Rose Bowl team. It has been amongst us
for 10 years, but we still can't forget the Huskers of
The resurging Huskers will not assume the role of
just another team. The listless, spiritless teams of the
World War II age are gone. Glassford has taken green,
young men and developed them into a fighting body that
won t give up until the final gun has sounded.
Oklahoma, the present wave of the Missouri valley,
looks like the team to again capture the Big Seven foot
ball crown. Missouri should be right on their heels with
NEBRASKA not far behind.
Kansas University will be strong, but they will lack
the spirit to get past fourth place. Colorado, with Merwin
Hoedel, will ride into fifth while the two state colleges
Kansas State and Iowa State will again battle for the
Those are my predictions for the 1950 campaign. In
51, look for the Huskers to slip up on the rest of the field.
Our sophomores of today will have had a year's experience,
making up the difference between third and first.
"Going out on a limb?" You might ask that, but after
viewing the Huskers in scrimmage, I feel that I'm safe. An
injury or two could throw a monkey wrench into the whole
Glassford machine, but when you pick the winners, you
have to ligure that injuries will hurt all of the teams
This will be the last Press Box Views written by me
for the Daily Nebraskan. It has been a pleasure and honor
to report to the students of the University what is happen
ing on the athletic front and it is hard for me to leave.
I have accepted a position with the Lincoln Journal news
papers effective Friday.
In parting, I have this to say. It has been a pleasure to
serve you and I sincerely hope that you have enjoyed the
sports page as much as I have enjoyed giving it to you.

Most of the avid baseball fans
are hugging their radios these
rainy afternoons following the
American League's three way
whirlwind race for the pennant
among the New York Yankees,
the Detroit Tigers, and the Bos
ton Red Sox. Let there be no
mistake about it Joltin' Joe Di
Maggio, Scooter Rizzuto, and
Company are going to be in there
against the National League
Phillies when the final tally
books are gone over.
But there's one person on the
Cornhusker campus who is
worrying more about Nebraska
baseball fortunes than he is
about the major league pennant
races. Tony Sharpe, alias the
Scarlet and Cream baseball
coach, is already laying blue
prints for his 1951 baseball crew.
He had his squad out getting
in shape for the coming cam
paign last Monday and expects
to keep things pretty lively for
them during the next few weeks.
That is, providing mother nature
will cooperate by putting a field
cover on the sky. The squad was
forced to cancel the scheduled
practice sessions for Wednesday
and Thursday because of the
About thirty men reported out
for the opening drills on Monday.
Sharpe states that any man who
is interested in going out for the
team is still welcome to report
out for the fall workouts. The
point is stressed that a man will
have a lot better opportunity of
making the Varsity club next
spring if he comes out for the
Sharpe plans on having some
intra-squad games in an effort to
find out what positions his men
are best suited for.
Ray Mladovich is the only
letterman that has checked out
equipment thus far this fall.
Coach Sharpe is toying with the
idea of converting him from a
first baseman to a catcher. As a
sophomore last year, he sparkled
around the first sack and wielded
a healthy bat.
One of the chief opponents of
Sharpe's tital aspirations for 1951
was the tremendous loss by grad
uation. Among the men who are
going to be hard to replace are
outfielders Bob Cerv and Harlan
Powley, infielders Hobe Hayi,
Bob Grogan, and Bill Diers, and
catcher Tom Novak. Sharpe will
depend mainly on men from last
year's squad who did not letter
plus men who performed on th
freshman team ,to fill the spact
left by graduation.
The biggest task staring him in
the face is the job of replacing
All American Cerv.
According to the latest news,
Cerv had a top year with the
Kansas City Monarchs of the
American Association. Cerv
jumped all the way from college
ball to the minor league Mon
archs, a triple-A team In the
farm system of the New York
Yankees. This means he is only
one jump away from the majors.
During his rookie year as a
pro, Cerv batted .304. hit the ball
over the fence 14 times, and hit
several doubles and triples. He
stole a number of bases and was
a big gun in the Monarch's of
fensive show. He batted clean up
during the last month and a half
of the season.
Cerv's defensive work was also
outstanding. He had few errors
and had a few assists from the
outfield. He rotated between
center field and right field. His
throwing : rm, which at one time
was reported to be too weak for
pro ball, is evidently going to be
strong enough to stand the strain
of the big time.
Rcticcoration of Swimming
Pool Near Completion
After two weeks swimming
lessons will be given daily in the
newly decorated Coliseum pool.
The painting of the pool will be
completed this week but minor
repairs on the equipment will
make the pool unavailable for
approximately two weeks, ac
