tilt between the Warriors and the
Tridents could not be reported be
cause neither team could be con
tacted. Thursday these squads played
and the final score was Warriors
28 and the Tridents 0.
The Warriors have a history
which is quite interesting. Three
years ago a group of freshman or
ganized a basketball team. These
same boys played basketball to
gether for the next two years and
today have registered for the in
tramural football season.
These same boys are also com
peting in the intramural golf tour

passed for two touchdowns, an
extra point and ran for another

for one TD and then passed to
Dick Wallintine for 6 points.
Later in the game Cast made
a 20 yard run for another touch
down. The extra point was made
on a pass from Cast to Jerry
The score was then 26 to 0,
but Strasheim still not satisfied,
blocked a kick by the Tridents
and caused them to down their
ball in the end zone and 2
The outstanding player of the
game was Scott Cast who was the
passing sensation for the War
riors. The first game played on Fri
day was the game between Phi
Delta Theta and the Delta Tau
Delta houses.
The final score was Phi Delta
Theta 6 and the Del'ta Tau Delta 7.
The Deits won in an over

Newmans emerged victorious.
In the first few minutes of play
the Newman club caught the
Presbyterian team behind the line
of scrimmage and forced them

Phil Eyen of the Newman club
sparked the win over the Presby

Also late in the game Eyen
passed to Ronold Dunn for an ex

The outstanding run of the
game was made by Glen Ostik

The Benchvjarmer
Sports Editor
Observing the national sports
writer's reactions to the Corn
husker defeat last Saturday
should be very interesting.
For it was these same individ
uals who gave Nebraska such a
tremendous buildup in their pre
season grid reviews. Scan back
through almost any national sport
publications, and you will soon
realize the tremendous amount of
publicity that came our way.
But since Texas Christian
took Bill Glassford's team into
camp so very thoroughly, it is
a good bet that many a noted
sports scribe will start revising
his original notes on the 1951
football campaign.
That, however, is hardly worth
mentioning except for a bit of idle
The main point to be consid
ered is the fact that the Corn
huskers should not have been so
highly publicized in the first
place. As we recall Glassford
turned a deaf ear to the many
who were predicting such great
feats this yea.
Furthermore, local sports
writers cast questioning .glances
toward some of the things their
colleagues on the national scene
were scribbling. And we believe
writers around this area nre in a
better position ta know the true
state of Cornhusker footbill than
are .their word-talcnted col
leagues, most of whom have not
even seen Nebraska play recently.
Unfortunately, though, many
fans chose to digest the glittering
words in the national publications
instead of the better-qualified
opinions of Glassford, Walt Dob
biris, Dick Becker, Gregg McBride
and Norris Anderson.
It was natural then that a lot
of keenly disappointed people left
Memorial Stadium Saturday. To
those who were disappointed, we
can only say it was their own
But there could .still .be a
brighter side to the picture. At
least a lot more people will have
their feet flat on the ground now
instead of floating about on a
sunbeam of bowl bids and unde
feated seasons. And that, to our
way of thinking, is definitely for
the better.
Despite the loss, a good deal can
still be salvaged from 'the 1951
season, as long as we do not ex
pect too much.
Eight games are still left on
the schedule in which the Husk
ers will have ample opportunity
to prove themselves. A lot of
questions concerning the relative
strength and weakness which
perhaps, even Glassford did not
know have been answered. And
the game gave an armful of
freshman and sophomores the
benefit of badly-needed expe
rience. It also gave the Nebraska
coaching staff an opportunity to
see exactly what its team did
and did not have.
Now that we do know some of
the answers, let's keep our feet
on the ground. Glassford was and
is doing a swell job for us.
As most of us remember, he
took over the football reins when
Nebraska was having some of the
worst seasons in its history. Both
his gridiron record and his repu
tation as an individual at the Uni
versity speak for themselves. He
has brought us a long ways, and
he will take us a lot further in
the next few years.

Glassford, who told reporters
the Huskers wereNbeing overrated
in most scribes opinions, will have
to battle over-confidence in Sat
urday's tilt again.
The Wildcats have absorbed
their first two setbacks against
Cincinnati and Iowa elevens. The
Wildcats are in a position similar
to Nebraska. Coach Bill Meek,
former assistant to Bob Neyland
at Tennessee, has been forced to
almost start from scratch with
most positions being left vacant
because of graduation
sive ball carrying power, but this
is not the situation. Similar to
Nebraska, the Wildcat offensive
line was not able to clear any
path for the backfield to follow.
Most pre-season pickers have
the Wildcats rated down close to
the bottom of the Big Seven rung.
This will be the big conference
initial contest for the Kansas
Staters, and it is expected that
the Huskers will be ranked a
slight favorite by most selectors
and parlays. The basis for such
action would be hard to find after
the disappointing showing made
by the Huskers last week.

Manager of the year: Leo Du
rocher. Team of the year: The New
York Giants.
Disagree? Probably there are
a few Dodger die hards who won't
like my picks but I'm sure all the
Giants fans will give me hardy
approval. Most valuable player
in the National League will be
Sal Maglie.
I thought those Giants would
come through and you darn betcha
they did. Of course, Brooklyn
helped a bit by crumbling those
last few days' but they didn't win
the games for Durocher's boys.
The Giants beat the Dodgers 3
to 1 yesterday, and I'm betting
that they do it again today. I
remember last week when I said
that the boys from the Polo
Grounds wouldn't quit till that
final day, and the final day may
show the New York Giants as
World Series champions.
Now I'm assuming a lot, and
you know it. It's quite possible
that that Brooklyn luck will come
through, and they will sweep the
next two games from New York
but from my viewpoint it will be
more impossible than probable.
The Dodgers were lucky to win
Sunday, but I think that strong
Giant hitting and pitching will
wither any four-leaf clovers that
Chuck Dressen's crew might have
The Yankee's will rate as a
7-5 favorite over either the Giants
or Brooklyn, according to latest
betting odds. And by all means
they should be given that honor.
But can they whip a fighting team
like the Giants? This would be
the first series for the Giants since
1938. and they'll be bound to take
the crown away from those talent-
loaded Yanks.
Never before in the history of
the National League has a team
been 134 games behind during
the season and come back to cap
ture the pennant. The Giants will
win the coveted flag. What do
some of you Dodger fans think?

Edge Over Dodgers

The baseball Giants of New
York City are in the driver's seat,
and nothing short of a small
atomic bomb will be able to knock
them off the lofty perch they oc
cupy after Monday's dramatic 3-1
victory over the faltering Brook
lyn Dodgers in the first game of
the playoff to decide the National
League pennant winner.
The Durochermen, playing the
type of ball that has characterized
their amazing late season spurt to
the top, defeated the Dodgers in
their own back yard, Ebbets Field,
before a hysterical crowd of over
30,000, as the most exciting base
ball season in the history of the
game drew near its climax.
Charlie Dressen called on Big
Ralph Branca to shoulder the re
sponsibility of halting the resur
gent Giants. Branca, one of the
seven chuckers paraded to the hill
in the Dodgers thrilling 14 in
ning 9-8 defeat of the Phillies the
day before, responded by giving
it all he had, but it was not quite
enough, as his old nemesis, the
gopher ball, proved to be his
Durocher countered with Jim
Hearn who owns record of 16-9
for the season. Hearn, winner of
2 out of 5 with the Dodgers,
pitched magnificently in the
pinches to hold the Bums at bay.
The Dodgers opened the scoring
in the second inning, as Andy
Pafko dropped a fly ball into the
lower left field stands with no
mates aboard to put the Giants
at an early inning "disadvantage.
The way Branca was pitching
it appeared as though one run
would be enough. But with Monte
Irvin perched on 1st base In the
fifth inning, Ralph grooved a fast
ball to Bob Thomson who prompt

unrelinquishable lead. Thomson's
homer, his 31st of the year, was
his second in two days which had
brought the New Yorkers from
In the eighth inning. Irvin,
Giant cleanup man, iced the game
for the Giants as he clouted a
homer into the far reaches of the

homers have been collected by the
Giants, with Irvin accounting for
