Sports Editor. Daily Nebraska
The Nebraska Cornhuskers
were looking forward to their
Homecoming contest with the
University of Missoui this com
ing Saturday with a tasty victory
over Kansas under their belts."
The Tigers, also victors last
Saturday and in second place in
the Big-Seven standings, are
currently riding high. The Mis
sourians toppled Oklahoma A&M
Saturday by a 27-0 score.
Their conference record to
date shows one win and one tie,
so the Cornhuskers will have the
opportunity to hand the Tigers
their first cor :eronce loss of the
year. Their w.- was a 28-7 vic
tory over Kansas State and the
tie was a 20-20 affair with Iowa
The Huskers advanced from
sixth in the conference to fourth
Saturday by virtue of their 33-26
win over Kansas University. At
the same time the Jayhawkers
were tumbling from first place
to third with a 2-1 record.
.500 Percent
The Huskers climbed to a .600
percentage with a combined
powerful ground and passing at
tack at Kansas, along with some
good defensive play in crucial
The passing of Fran Nagle
and Bobby Reynolds appeared in
prominence for the first time
Saturday. The Huskers, using a
potent ground game for most of
we season, iouna me going a
little easier in the air.
Nagle tossed to two touch
downs Saturday while his and
Reynolds flips kept the Jay
hawkers on their guard the
whole game.
Dick Regier took the first Na
gle scoring toss in the second
quarter of the game and chalked
up the touchdown that put the
Huskers in front for the first
time during the hectic afternoon.
Simon Terrific
Frank Simon was on the scor
ing end of the other touchdown
Jiil with a beautiful leaping
catch. From all reports, the catch
by Simon was definitely one of
the finest ever seen in the Kan
fas htadium. This touchdown
boosted the Husker total to 10
points with but a few moments

Top Leagues
Delta Tau Delta and Sigma
Phi Epsilon are the top offensive
and defensive intramural foot
ball teams going into Monday's
playoffs. The Delts have scored
111 points while the Sig Ep de
fense has not yet been scored
upon. Both teams have played
six contests to date.
In the averages, however, the
Pbl Delta Theta "B" team ranks
at the top. The Phi Delt Bees
have competed in only five
game and have scored 102 points
for an average of 20.4 markers
per contest. The Delt average is
18.S points per game.
In the individual divisions the
top offensive and defensive out

as follows:
The fraternity "A leaders are
the same as the All-U leaders,
Delta Tau Delta and Sigma Phi
The Phi Delt Eees have 102
points in the fraternity "B" di
vision and also are the top de
fensive unit, allowing only seven
points to their opponents.
Presby House also holds down
both leading positions in the In

Presbys have scored 96 points
and allowed their opponents
but 13.
in the Independent division
the City YMCA leads the of

workhorse of the Huskers at
offensive fullback Saturday
afternoon. He scored once and

where Bobby Reynolds shot
across for his touchdown.
Hoy Scores
The fourth Cornhusker touch
down came from the NU defens
ive platoon. Early in the third
period the defensive ends, Pay
nich and Prochaska, who had
been rushing so great ell after
noon, hit the KU quarterback
before he could pass, the ball
bounding out of his hands into
the arms of Husker guard Rex
Hoy. Hoy grabbed tight and set
out for Kansas' goal and with
good blocking, went all the way
a 66 yard run.
Nebraska's terrific left-half,
Bobby Reynolds, was the main
concern of the Kansans all af
ternoon and concentrating on
him they were vulnerable to at
tacks by the rest of the Husker
team. Quarterback Fran Nagle
handled the team very fine in
this situation, giving the Husk
ers a .700 percentage for the
year to date.

l-M Football Playoffs Begin
Monday; Six Games On Tap
Twelve fraternity "A" teams
journey to the Ag College foot
ball fields tonight to begin the
intramural grid playoffs. Thirty
two teams gained the playoffs
and one-by-one, 31 of them will
taste defeat, some of them maybe
for the first time this year.
Six championships will be
doled out during the playoffs but
a couple of the teams will grab
more than one title. The fra
ternity "A" crown will go to the
survivor of the 16-team single
elimination tourney; the fra
ternity "B" title will be awarded
the winner of the 8-team "B"
tournament; the Interdenomina
championship will be the reward
of the winner of that four-team
tourney; while a four-team tour
ney will also decide the Inde
pedendent champion.
At this point in the competi
tion the fraternity "B" champs
will put away their footballs and
admire their newly won trophy;
they will not enter into the play
offs for the All-University Cham
pionship. The intramural depart
ment, . deciding that . the "B"
teams were in reality the fra
ternity's , second string, ruled
that those teams were not eligi
ble for the All-U title.
The other three champs will
continue, however. The newly
crowned Denom champion and
Independent title holder will vie
for the All-Unaffiliated Cham
pionship. Then in the finale, the un
affiliated champ will meet the
fraternity "A" champ, the win
ner being declared champion of
the University,
Every day except Thursday
will see the teams in action this
week. Thursday has been de-
clared a "day-off" due to the
ROTC parades scheduled then.

First Place
Oklahoma climbed into sole
possession of first place in the
Big Seven conference Saturday
with a 20-6 victory over stubborn
Iowa State. The Sooner win
coupled with Nebraska's 33-26
triumph over Kansas University
enabled the Okies to become un
disputed leader.
Missouri moved into second
place altho not engaged in con
ference competition Saturday.
They downed Oklahoma A&M
by a 27 to 0 score last weekend.
Nebraska climbed to fourth
place while knocking the Jay
hawks down to third.
Iowa State continued in fifth
place even tho losing to Okla
homa. Colorado sits in sixth place.
They journey outside the con
ference Saturday and were tied
14-14 by Utah.
Kansas State was idle Saturday.
Seven Flight Winners
Battle for Free-Throw Title
Seven survivors remain in the
All-University Free Throw tour
ney out of a beginning entry
list of 254. This was announced
last Friday by th' University
Physical Education Department.
With match play completed in
each of the eight leagues league
VII did not have a winner-Sigma
Phi Epsilon holds a seven point
lead over Phi Kappa Psi in the
race for the team trophy. The
Sig Eps have 110 points as com
pared to 103 for the Phi Psi's. In
third place is Phi Delta Theta
with 98 points. The Phi Delt
total is final, as they qualified
no men for the playoffs.
The only other team which has
an outside chance to beat the Sig
Eps or the Phi Psi's out of the
title is Sigma Alpha Epsilon with
a team total of 80 points. How-
Monday will find the current
leader in the football ratings,
Sigma Phi Epsilon, and Theta Xi
meeting in a feature battle. The
Sig Eps are unbeaten and un
scored upon in six games and
rank as favorites, but they will
have to be careful of the high
scoring TX outfit. This feature
will take plate on field 4.
Phi Delta Favored
Phi Delta Theta rank as
slight favorite over a good Theta
Chi team on field 6. The Phi
Delts are a potent outfit but
have tasted defeat on two occa
sions, and a sharp passer was
their downfall both times. The
Theta Chi's boast of such a
passer in John Futcher and this
could be the game of the day.
Field 3 will toss the Sigma
Nu's against Sigma Alpha Mu in
another potentially good game.
Both are in the top-ten in their
division and feature defense
over offense. One touchdown
here either way could take this
one. The Nu's are favored.
A very evenly matched pair
will battle on field 1 when Phi
Kappa Psi and Pioneer House
take the field. Both teams have
had their ups and downs this
season and the game could go
either way with the Phi Psi's
getting a slight nod.
Delts Strong
Delta Tau Delta rates as least
two touchdowns better than
Cornhusker Co-op. The Delts are
the highest scoring outfit in the
university at present and the
co-op boys do not appear able to
slow them down too much.
. The final game of the after
noon taking place on field 9 will
find Brown Palace as strong fa

Sigma Phi Epsilon is. still
perched atop the all-University
football standings going into the
playoffs. Altho idle during the
week, the Sig Ep record could
not be matched and their hold
on the top rung could not be
loosened. Teams below them rose
and fell in the standings over
the week s activity, but the lead
ers held fast.
The regulation play has now
ended for the teams; all play has
ended for 22 of the teams, but
32 outfits now turn their atten
tion to the playoffs.
Alpha Tau Omega jumped a
peg over the week and going
into the playoffs, holds down the
number two spot in the Univer
sity. The Taus added two more
convincing victories to their
string last week to run their
record to 5-1. They crushed
Sigma Alpha ' Epsilon by a 33 to
6 score and kept the same mar
gin of victory in their 27 to 0
triumph over Kappa Sigma.
Brown Palace took a big jump
in the ratings. The Palacers,
eighth last week, are occupying
the third position in these stand
ings. The co-op men copped two
contests by six-point margins in
competition last week. They
downed Farm House 20-14, and
stopped a high-flying band of
Theta Xi's, 6-0.
Delts I'pped
Delta Tau Delta also climbed
a considerable distance in the
ratings, from seventh to fourth.
The Delts accomplished this by
merely remaining idle while the
other teams were knocking
themselves off.
Another idle team over the
ever, the Sig Alphs have quali
fied two men for the playoffs.
Other teams and their scores
are Sigma Nu with 77; Sigma
Chi, 55; Delta Upsilon, 41; Delta
Tau Delta, 40; Farm House and
Beta Theta Pi, 39: Alpha Tau
Omega, 38; Theta Xi, 27; Corn
husker Co-op, 26; Alpha Gamma
Rho, 22; Sigma Alpha Mu, 14;
I and Phi Gamma Delta with 13.
Playoffs Begin
The playoffs, which have al
ready started, consist of three
rounds of 50 throws each or a
total of 150 throws. The player
who has the highest total for
the three rounds will become the
the All-University champion.
The seven men eligible for the
playoffs are: Bill Alexander,
Delta Upsilon, winner of League
I; Don Sampson, Sigma Alpha
Epsilon, winner. of League II;
Carr Trumbull, Sigma Chi, win
ner of League III; Dave Bran
don, Sigma Phi Epsilon, winner
of League IV; Dudley Saville,
Phi Kappa Psi, winner of League
V; Don Imig, Sigma Alpha Ep
silon, winner of League VI; and
Ronald Powers, Independent,
winner of League VIII.
Early first-round playoff re
sults indicate the new All-University
champion will have faced
pretty rough competition on the
way to the crowa.
How are these for first-round
playoff scores? Bill Alexander,
DU, and Carr Trumbull, Sig Chi,
have each made 48 out of 50. Don
Sampson, Sig Alpha, is close be
hind with 47 out of 50. So far
these are the only three to have
completed their first round.
Scoring for the playoffs will
! be as follows: The winner of
each of the three rounds of com
petition will receive eight points,
the second high scorer for each
round will receive seven, and so
on down to. the last place con
testant who will receive two
points, assuming that there are
supposed to be eight players left
in the meet.
