There Is a gigantic "if to add
to that statement,
Mlsoari's team, currently
leadlnr the conference race with
a spotless record, has quite an
advantare over the Husker nine.
The Kansas Jayhawks, who led
the league earlier in the sea
son when they handed the Corn
husker their only defeat, have
dropped out of the picture.
Should the Tigers succeed in
winning every league contest
which they play until the Nebraska-Missouri
series, they would
need only a split in the series to
win the conference title.
The Huskers could win the Big
Seven crown by beating Missouri
both games of the series and win
ning all other conference games.
Another obstacle confronting
the Nebraskans is the fact that
the aeries ts scheduled to be
played at Columbia, Any team
ts at an advantage while play
ing on their home diamond.
Defensively, the NU team ranks
probably at the top of the Big
Seven ladder. Although many
teams will lag defensively when
they hold a great scoring ad
vantage over an opponent, the
Husker nine has been consistently
good on the field during many
lopsided games this season.
Nebraska's pitching staff, domi
nated by sophomore talent, has
been tops this year, Ray Novak
leads the pitchers with a record
of three wins against no defeats.
Shortstop Ray Mladovich is the
only senior on Jsharpe s infield,
while the outfield will require a
complete changeover next season.
With veteran battery men and in
fielders, the Cornhusker team
should be the team to watch dur

Intramural softball re-opened
the 1952 - season Monday with
seven first-round tourney con
tests reaching completion minus
any rain, showers or dew. Rain
and wet weather forced the aban
donment ot the regular season
play last week after 36 of the
first 46 scheduled games were
cancelled. A single - elimination
tournament, which is hard on the
losing teams, is now in progress.
Phi Kappa Psi put away its
softballs for the year as Delta
Upsilon came through with a
surprising- 7-6 triumph in that
first-round battle. The Phi Psi's ;
had taken two easy victories
during the abbreviated regular j
season and appeared to be one
of the better outfits, but the
DCs had other ideas.

In the wildest game of the day
Alpha Gamma Rho and Beta

before the AGRs emerged with
a 17-16 victory.
It was a see-saw affair all
the way. The Aggies started
things rolling with a five-run
first and then saw the Betas
roar back and tie the count. The
losers took their first lead in
the second frame, a two run
margin at 8-6. It was the Aggies

Nebraska's talented baseballers
racked up their fifth Big Seven
victory in six starts by drubbing
an outclassed Kansas State nine
16-0 Tuesday night on the Husker
diamond. f
Big Ray Novak and Freshman
Bob Kremke combined to stifle
the Wildcat's bats with three
harmless singles. Novak, the start
er, chalked up his tnira straignt
win of the season.
Nebraska clinched the contest
with a six run outburst in the first
frame. They added seven more in
a wild third inning that saw
eleven men parade to the plate.
A defensive collapse on the part
of the Kansas State infield led to
the lopsided score. Ten miscues
along with ten free passes from
the Wildcat hurlers, Gene Ku-
bickl and Bob Parker, allowed the
Huskers to waltz to the win.
Nebraska hitters combed the
Kansas State offering for a dozen
blows. Big stickers were Catcher
Murray "Merr' Backhaus and
Outfielder Milt Frei with two hits
in three trips. Backhaus, Bob
Diers and Ray Mladovich each
were credited with a pair of runs
batted in.
Novak completely silenced the
Wildcat regulars. Giving up only
two bingles in seven frames, No
vak had a no-hitter until Joe Ar
nold lined one past first in the
fourth inning. Third Baseman Don
Prigmore collected the other
safety during Novak's stint The
righthander from Omaha Tech
gave up four walks and struck out
Kremke, appearing in his first
Big Seven game, allowed Earl
Woods to connect for the remain
ing Kansas State hit.

commended Tuesday by baseball Coach Tony Sharpe for his im
provement during the last week. Bill plays the first base position
while Bay Novak is on the mound for the Huskers. He has looked
good both offensively and defensively against the Sooners and th
Wildcats, and has credit for one home run, which he hit at
