THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
By CORK BIEMOND
Sports Staff Reporter
Saturday afternoon the Huskers
cave the Penn State Lions a ter
rific battle in Memorial Stadium
xne iinai tally of 15 to 7 was
hardly a fair indication of the
ability of the teams, since the last
touchdown made by Penn State
was a gift, due to a NU fumble on
the 4 yard line on which they
capitalized for 7 points.
After Penn State kicked to Ne
braska, Bob Smith and Nick
Adduci attempted to get Nebraska
running plays into effect, but it
was ineffective, so John Bordogna
kicked to the Penn 20.
Penn failed to complete its
required 10 yards and after a
five yard penalty they kicked to
the NU 45 yard line. Nebraska
was penalized five yards, then
passed twice but after a costly
fumble, Penn recovered the ball
on the Husker 40. They then
attempted two running: plays
and a forward pass which was
incomplete. They sprinted off
tackle to Nebraska's 14 yard line
where Don Boll smashed
through and hammered the pass
er into the ground, causing him
to fumble, which was recovered
The offense again failed to make
the necessary yardage and Penn
ran back a kick to the Nebraska
49. There through passing and
end runs they advanced to the 19
yard line where the Scarlet took
The second quarter was slow
for NU's attack and we kicked
. . . After a run by Shopa to Ne
braska's 19 yard line, Penn
passed and ran finally made a
touchdown but failed to convert.
In the balance of the second
quarter, Smith and Bordogna
made several runs that almost
got the Huskers rolling toward
pay dirt, but they lacked the
necessary drive and Penn took
over on their 30.
Pollard broke loose for several
nice gains for Penn State and only
heroic line play by Minnick, Boll
and Mullen kept the Lions from
Several losses were attributed
to NU linemen who continually
smashed up Penn plays before
they could get into action. A pass
from Don Norris to Frank Simon
in this quarter clicked for much
needed yardage when the offense
on the ground again bogged down.
The first half ended just as a
Penn State pass was intercepted
by Decker, but time ran out.
On the second half kickoff
Cederdahl made a fine return to
the NU 36 yard line. Bordogna
went around left end for five and
again the Huskers were unable to
make the necessary yardage. A
Penn State TD run was called
back after Bordogna kicked be
cause they were off side.
Bordogna then completed a
brilliant run to the Penn State
one yard line where he succeed
ed in scoring the second play
following. The conversion was
good and Nebraska led 7-6.
Simon kicked off and the
tackle was made by Levun
dusky on the 35. Penn then ad
vanced to the Husker 42 and
was stopped by Jim Yeisley,
Boll and Minnick for no gain.
A quarterback sneak for a first
down set up a pass play to Pollard
on the Nebraska 11. Pollard went
to the 3 yard line on the following
play, but was smeared for a loss
on the next attempt.
A fumble was then recovered
for NU by Shellbacker. Smith
broke loose off tackle for a beau
tiful 69 yard run to the Penn
State 21 yard line. The Huskers
were unable to sustain this drive
however and Penn State took over
on their 15 yard line.
Penn State then made two
nice runs, and passed to Pollard
on the Nebraska 34. A delayed
line buck took the ball to the
25. Two more p:ays and the ball
rested on the nine yard line

From a platform on the field,
band director Don Lcntz led the

the high school majorettes did
their stuff on the sidelines.
During the performance, the
card section displayed patterns
appropriate to the music.
The program started with the
huge band playing national an

formed an American flag. Next
was a circus number, "Barnum
and Baileys' Favorite." As the
band played "On The Mall," the
card section saluted the high
school bands by forming a trum
pet. Then the bandsmen formed a
huge "N" on the field, and the
card section answered with a
big "Nebraska." The bands fol
follwed this with "Billboard,"

Slightly over a week remains before duck season officially opens
for the state of Nebraska. Friday October 19th at high noon to be
exact, is the proper time to unlimber the old blunderbuss and "Fire
Special note to pheasant hunters; you must wait one week before
shooting pheasants. The pheasant season doesn't start until October
26, at sunrise. ' - ' - - '
MOST IMPORTANT are these regulations concerning waterfowl
A valid current license is required.
A Federal migratory waterfowl stamp is required. (These
stamps are available at the local postoffice).
A plug is needed in repeating shotguns to limit their capacity
to three shells.
Bag limi is 5 ducks including one wood duck. This is a par
ticular species of the fowl and not a lumber decoy.
Daily limit of geese is five, including in such limit either two
Canada geese or two whitefronted geese or one each.
After the first day starting at noon, subsequent days shooting will
be allowed starting at one-half hour before sunrise, througn Dec. 7.
Motorboats are not allowed. Certain portions of this state are
game refuges and are closed to shooting at all times. These are
mainly on the Platte river and federal or state owned lakes, so be sure
and check around before you start shooting.
It is illegal to shoot from a public highway.
It is also illegal to shoot out of an automobile. It is illegal to have
any shells in the guns, or magazine of the guns you are carrying in
These above regulations are those most violated In recent years
so be warned in advance that the wardens are checking cars for
We are also warned that there will be extra law enforcement
officers In the field at the start of the season to check on those who
mistakenly believe the pheasant season starts on October 19th.
Latest reports on duck prospects indicate that there are great
numbers of ducks in the Nebraska sandhills.
Latest information on hunting follows: The war between the
states will break out Friday noon. Iowa has a week's head start
on waterfowl shooting, and consequently many Nebraska hunters who
wish to hunt in the Missouri river areas bordering the two states are
purchasing an Iowa non-resident permit with the hope of getting the
jump on the early duck and goose flights down the Big Muddy.
A check Monday in Omaha indicated that over 500 Iowa non-resident
licenses have already been sold and the big rush is yet to come.
The possibility of getting into the early goose flight is the big
reason for the rush. The earlier Iowa opening should just about
take in the peak of the goose flight down the Missouri river.
Non-resident pheasant hunters in Nebraska this year will have
no bag limit restrictions. Regular resident restrictions will pre
vail. This means that the non-resident visitor can take his daily
limit of five birds, and then come back another day and try for
his limit again. Last year non-resident pheasant seekers were
limited to four birds per permit.

Nebraska's Cornhuskers dropped the third game of their 1951
season, but it was a matter of taking the bitter with the sweet. The
Huskers looked a great deal better! 1
There were times when the heart beats of the throng of 38,000
could be felt way back in State College, Pa., the home of the Penn
State Nittany Lions. The Huskers were vastly improved!
The record books will show that the Huskers fell 15-7 to Penn
State on October 13, but to avid Husker fans, that date signifies
a decided show of improvement of what someday might turn out
to be Nebraska's greatest team.
The offense would go at full speed at intervals and then slow down
and finally sputter. But the fact that the Huskers were punching
that ball through for gains is, in itself, an improvement over their
showing against the first two foes.
The defense was charging hard at times and Penn State backs
found themselves attempting to make gains through seven vicious
The pass defense was finally a defense! The Lions completed
their share of the passes, but a good share fell and were knocked to
John Bordogna, you were great! Most of the fans in the stand
on that cloudy Saturday afternoon will remember you for that
sensational 59 yard run and the one yard smash to a Scarlet tally.
It was your presence that sparked the offensive prowess of the,
Huskers. Your fight and determination to make yardage,'
whether you were in a forward motion or running and spinning
backwards, was the most impressive display of running since
Reynolds' feats of last year.
Bob Smith was only superb! As
to compare mis urana island flash with Reynolds as a freshman.

Frank Simon can't improve much, but he played his consistently
fine game at end for Nebraska. .Especially did Frank bring the
crowd to its feet when he caught a pass from Don Norris with no
less than two Lions all over him. The play ranks as one of the top
ones in the game.
Old number 22 will no longer be seen smashing through opponents
lines and taking those unorthodox short choppy steps toward
the promised land. Nick Adduci will be working out with Uncle
Sam's team. Nick received his army call and left yesterday.
The Huskers were hurt on several miscues and mistakes during

Don Norris deserves his share of

of plays. Today was the first time I've seen any Huskers throw a
pass on second down.
The team had a little informal get together for parting team

Speeches were made and gifts presented by the Nebraska team
members to let Nick know how much they thought of him.

always be one of the most popular team players to wear a Nebraska

Yanks Want Garver;
White Sox Also Bid
Although the 1951 baseball sea
son is all over, major league teams
have already started building for
tne coming battle next year.
Most of the big-time teams have
launched trading deals in an ef
fort to build Up the weaknesses
discovered during the past season.
The hottest trade on tap is
between the New York Yan
kees and the St. Louis Browns.
The Yank organization is anx
ious to obtain the brilliant
Brownie pitcher, Ned Garver,
who won 20 games last year
for a third-rate club. Besides
the Yanks, the Chicago White
Sox also rumored to want the
services of Garver.
According to reports, the Yanks
made a down-payment on Garver
when they sold Cliff Mapes to the
Browns on waivers. The rest of
the deal allegedly includes Gerry
Coleman, second baseman, and
four other players and a good
supply of cash to St. Louis for the
services of the stylish Garver.
General Manager George Weiss
of the Yankee organization ad
mitted he had a conference with a
group of St. Louis officials. "There
was no deal," Weiss said.
Other sources contend that
the White Sox will send several
players Including Jim Rivera, a
star in the Pacific Coast league
last year, and cash to the
Brownies in exchange for Gar
ver. Rivera performed for Se
attle under Rogers Hornsby, the
new Brownie manager.
But Garver isn't the only trade
Joe DiMaggio Decides
To Retire From Diamond
It is aDDarently official that
Joltin' Joe DiMaggio, considered
to be the greatest Yankee since
Babe Ruth, has played his last
season of major league baseball.
He informed Yankee President
Dan Topping that he had defi
nitely decided to retire from the
diamond sport. The two men
discussed the matter for two
hours, but Topping still wanted
the famed Yankee Clipper to
consider longer before making
up his mind.
Authorities on the national
scene believe that DiMaggio will
abide by his present decision to
call it auits. He asserted last
sping that the 1951 season would
be his last, but most fans turnea
a deaf ear.
And his 1951 performance in
dicated that he really is ready
for retirement. He hit .263, only
the second time in his Yankee
career he has batted below .300.
His rifle throwing arm lost the
power which once made it the
best in the majors, and he was
no longer the fast fielder as In
Immediately after the World
Series ended he announced that
"I have played my last game."
Despite the great feats he
performed during his .colorful
career, DiMaggio was especially
proud of the homer and doubles
he hit In the series because "it
will give them something to re
member me by."
Manager Casey Stengel said his
club could not have won the
series without DiMaggio, and that
he hopes the Clipper will change
"In a sense Joe was the Yankees,
and the day that he quits a part
of the Yankees will be gone too,"
Since be first started playing
in the house that Babe Ruth
built, DiMaggio has served as
the Yankee leader, and since
the departure of such stars as
"King Kong" Keller, Bill Dickey

the Browns have on the fire. They
have been reconstructing their
last-place club with minor leag
uers. Included Is the purchase ol
pitchers Hal Hudson nad John y
Hetki from Toronto, the Brown's
farm club in the Internaticnl
league, and they obtained Leo
Thomas, infielder, from Portland.
Thomas, an ex-Brown, was
traded for cash and pitcher Fred
Sanford and utilityman Jack Ma
guire. Sanford was bought by
the Yanks for $100,000 in 1949
and returned to St. Louis this year
on Washington waivers.
The White Sox also went via
the, minor league route in order
to strengthen their surging
team. The Sox got hurlers Marv
Grissom and Hector Brown from
Seattle for cash and five minor
Grissom, who won 20 games,
formerly played with the De
troit Tigers, and Brown went to
St. Louis through the draft last
year but was shipped back when
he failed to win.
Another player the White Sox
are anxious to obtain is infielder
Hector Rodriguez from Brooklyn's
Montreal team in the International
league who was the 1951 rookie
of the year in that circuit.

in the National league, have been
