Baseball, Track
Difficult Slate
Assistant Sports Editor
Nebraska's track and baseball
teams, hampered by lack of good of Murry Backrhaus, Jim Ceder weather, will both face'dahl, Ray Novak, Dick McCor
crueial road tests this week end. mick, Bob Reynolds, Bob Decker,
Coach Tony Sharpe's Husker
diamondmen will encounter the
Oklahoma Sooners at Norman
on Friday and Saturday, and
Track Coach Ed Weir will take
a limited squad to the Drake
Relays Friday and Saturday.
Coach Weir announced only six
men who are certain to make
the trip for the Drake Relays, al
though he indicated that he may
add one or two more squad mem
bers before the end of the week.
The track mentor listed Don
Bedker and Don Tolman for
the hurdle events. Glenn Beer
line and Hoppy McCue will
compete In the broad jump,
Cliff Dale will enter both the
sohtput and discus events, and
Paul Grimm will also throw
the shotput.
Nebraska will not enter any
relay teams in the Des Moines
meet. Their excellent chance for
a place in the distance medley re
lay folded when Clayton Scott,
top-flight distance runner, was
slow in recovering from sickness
In time to compete.
Since there is no Individual
distance event in the meet, Lee
Moore will not make the trip
with the Husker thlnclads.
Moore is one of the better milers
in the Big Seven. He broke
Bobby Ginn's dual record at
Missour last week.
"We're pointing toward the dual
with the Colorado Buffaloes on
Monday," Coach Weir said. "Due
to lack of team depth, partly be
cause of sickness and injury, our
performance at Drake will be al
most entirely individual."
The Colorado dual will take
place place on the Husker oval,
and the entire squad will be en
tered in the meet.
Coach Sharpe plans to start
Ray Novak on the mound
against the Sooners at Norman
Since Novak is the regular
starting first-sacker on the Scarlet
lineup, Bill Giles will handle the
first base chores.
"Our showing against Kansas
last week proved that we are not
yet rounded into top condition,"
coach fanarpe commented.
"Nebraska's team last year
had much hitting power, but yet
they hit Stonestreet hard. This
year he held us to two singles.
This Indicates how unprepared
we are to meet a hard throwing
pitcher," he said.
Fifteen men will make the trip
Cyclones Plan
Football Game
The third annual Iowa State
college varsity-aiumni spring
lootDau game will be held In
Ames May 10 under the sponsor
ship of the varsity I Club.
The announcement of the
date came jointly from Stan
Campbell, 1951 captain, and Mai
Schmidt, who are acting as co
ordinators for the game.
The two men said that invita-
tions had been sent to some 40
former Cyclone lettermen to take
part in the game. Only eight sen
iors from the 1951 squad will be
"We would like to make one
.thing clear from the outset,"
said Campbell. "Any former
letterman is eligible to play.
Failure to get an invitation does
not mean that he isn't wanted.
We want everyone from Burt
German on to turn out for the
squad. Any former player who
did not get a letter and wants to
play should contact us at State
Gymnasium by mail."
The Varsity won the first game
in 1950. 36-12. The Alums scored
a 14-7 win last year.
The game will be played on
the Ames high school field at
night, as it was last year.
The eight current seniors avail'
able for the game are Campbell,
all-conference guard who played in
the East-West game; Schmidt, all
conference end; George Hess, quar
terback: Mel Meling, halfback;
Maury Schnell, fullback; Bob
Voetberg, end; LeRoy Beal, end;
and Jim Foster, tackle, bod
Jackson, tackle, is the ninth let
terman available but will not take
part since he is a member of the
varsity baseball pitching staff.
Spring Rain
Slows Down
The intramural schedule has
been Jumbled almost completely
as far as the Softball games are
Rain and muddy diamonds
have caused a complete change
In the slate. Only a few ball
games have been played off,
and many of these have been
called off at the end of the first
few innings, and thus cancelled.
The problem looms before the
Intramural department concern
ing the rescheduling or cancelling
of the games.
If the games are completely
called off, not to be replayed
at any time during the season,
many teams will have only ft
few games played. This would
allow a mediocre team to have a
good record If they have played
only weak opponents.

to Norman, leaving early Thurs
day morning by bus.
The squad list was composed
C'ristoir, Fat Mallette, Lhariey
Wright, Frank Hofmeier, Bill
Giles, Ray Mladovich, Mike Frei,
Bob Diers and Jerry Dunn.
The team's batting averages
dropped considerably following:
the Kansas game. Dunn and
Baokhaus lead Nebraska bat
ters with averages of .385 and
.318, respectively. Novak has
knocked in 12 runs to lead the
runs-batted-in department.
Wright still tops the pitchers
with two wins and no defeats.
Mallette has a 1-0 record, Novak
also has 1-0, Hofmeier 1-2 and
Bob Gleason 0-1.

IM Tennis
A new timetable was assigned
to the intramural tennis-doubles
tournament today. Because of the
failure of any of the games hav
ing already reached a decision
which apparently would lead to
overloading the courts just before
the deadline dates, a new setup
has Deen instigated.
All first round matches must
now be played on or before
April 26. The tennis courts
have been reserved for I-M
match play all day Saturday,
tne 26th. Six matches have been
assigned to the courts at 8:30
a.m., 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 3 p.m.
and 4:30 p.m.
If matches have not been
played before Saturday, the teams
must report at their scheduled
times to meet their opponents.
The times have been posted on
the tourney sheets in the PE
building and should be checked by
all participants to make sure of
their schedules.
If neither opponent shows up
at the scheduled time Saturday
and the match has not previ
ously been played and the re
sults reported, both teams will
be dropped from play. If the
same situation prevails and one
of the teams shows tip Satur
day at the scheduled time, they
will be awarded the forfeit.
Should the Saturday times con
flict with classes, etc., of any of
the teams, they may arrange to
play their opponents at any date
prior to Saturday.
The second round deadline is
May 3 with the third round slated
to finish by May 8 and the fourth
round by May 10.

Beta Theta Pi and Sigma Phi
Epsilon splashed their way to the
1952 intramural water-basketball
championships Monday night. The
Betas and Sig Eps capped un
beaten seasons with the deep-
water and shallow-water titles by
dunking Phi Delta Theta and Phi
Gamma Delta, respectively.
The Betas found the going
rough In the deep-water finale,
but finally outlasted the Phi
Delts in a low-scoring 6-3 tri
umph. Both teams were loaded
with varsity swimmers which
indicated a possible free-scoring
affair, but as it so often
happens, the torrid- scorers are
also great on defense and so
the defensive play prevailed
Beta Bill Greer led the scoring
output with two baskets and four
points while Dave Mackie and
Jack Greer each garnered a free
toss. Tom Harley got the only
bucket for the losers while Wei-
land added the third point on a
gratis shot.
Both the Betas and Phi Delts
were unbeaten going into the
title fray. The champions had
earlier established a new I-M
record by thrashing Phi Gamma
Delta 35-0 in the first round of
playoffs, the largest shutout
ever registered and the only
shutout ever to occur in the
playoffs of ithe rough water
sport. Offense was the keynote in the
snauow-water championship con
test. The Sig Eps rolled up a
10-0 first quarter lead and then
froliked to a 30-14 victory and
the title.
B. r.ussell got the champions
off to a flying start by pouring
eight counters through the meshes
in that opening period. He potted
two more in the second stanza
