ledker Takes Hurdle Races
The Nebraska track team took
it on tne cmn baturday from the
Missouri tracksters when they
dropped a 65 to 65 dual meet
to the Tigers.
It was Missouri's Bob Fessler
who pulled the win out of the
bag for the Bengals with his
second place Jn the 220-low
hurdles. Previous to this race,
the Missourians were leading,
6526 to 60, with only the mile
relay race needed to complete
Fessler came through as did the
.weDrasKa miie relay team; but it
was too late and the victory was
Lee Moore's performance in the
mile was the highlight of the
meet from the Nebraska stand
point. Moore clicked off a 4:18.8
timing to break the meet record
held by Bobby Ginn of Nebaska
Moore has been improving
steadily all year and should be
a strong threat to the Kansas
and Oklahoma distance men
when it comes time for the con
ference meet at Norman, Okla.,
Don Bedker was another beam
of light for the Huskers. He
topped Fessler in their clash for
nuraie supremacy and swept both
the high and low hurdle races.
Bedker topped the lower tim-
bers in 24.7 over the 220 yard
route. He flashed through the 120
highs in :15.0 flat. Fessler was
runner-up to Bedker in both races.
Missouri's Adam Fischer won
two blue ribbons for the Tiger
men with victories in both sprints.
He sped through the century in
iu.i ana traveled the 220-yard
dash trail in 22.2 seconds.
Nebraska's Brien Hendrickson
followed closely on Fischer's
heels in both races. The Tigers
picked up valuable third places
in both races with Tom Mintree
in the 100 and Bob Messengale
in the 220.
Messengale picked up top
laurels in the furlong race. He
took the 440 vard dash in 50.5.
The Tigers were able to shut-out
Nebraska's prime hope in this
race, Buele Balderston, to sweep
all three daces.
Jerry Piper also set new meet
standard m tne two mile run with
a 9:39.7 effort to break the old
mark of 9:52.9 set by Dale Garrels
of Nebraska back in 1941.
In the field, Coach Ed Weir's
broadjumpers swept the kan
garoo event. Glenn Beerline led
the way with a leap of 23 feet
24 inches, and Irv Thode and
Hoppy McCue gave second and
third place support respectively.

Riding on a beautiful two-hit
pitching job by ace righthander
Jack Stonestreet, the Kansas Jay-
hawks copped a 6-1 decision over
a stymied Nebraska nine at the

In a game which was played
on a soggy field after having
been delayed while groundkeep

the Huskers were baffled at

hard-hitting Scarlet nine pop
