THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
By BILL MUNDELL
Intramural Sports Columnist
Independent grid teams inaugu
rated their 1952 play Wednesday
as 12 teams "met to do battle.
Mustangs Romp ,
The Mustangs, composed mostly

holder City YWCA, took a giant
striae lor tnis season's crown. The
Mustangs trampled the Ag Men's
uud Dy a zb-u count.
Jack Mankemeyer was the biff
cog as he and his mates ran like
a herd of wild horses over the
Aggie crew. The Intramural spe
cialty, the forward pass, was
used only occasionally by the
visitors, as the victors ground
out long and consistent gains on
Mankemeyer tallied twice for
the Mustangs, pilfering an Aeeie
fumble and dashing 30 yards for
the first score and taking a four-
yard pass for his second tally,
.Lowell Hoyt climaxed a big 19
point fourth quarter for the win
ners by snagging a pass in the end
zone on the last play of the game.
The Navy ROTC spotted the fa
vored Rockets a first quarter
safety and then fought back with
a six-pointed in the second period
to win, 6-2. Dick Grant fired a
perfect strike to Verone Gibb for
SO yards and the tally.
Buss Snyder fired four touch
down passes to lead the City
YMCA to a 25-0 rout of the Ag
College YMCA. Snyder's tosses
pel led doom for the Aggies
from the outset His passes ac
counted for lone scores in the
first and third stanzas and two

Darrell Avers was on the re

while J. Jones gathered in the

Newman Club Wins
Newman Club scored seven
points in each of the two middle
periods to down the Methodist
House, 14-0. Inter-Varsity and

Smith Sparks DU's
One fraternity "B" struggle
Wednesday resulted in a 12-2 vic
tory for Delta Upsilon "B" over
Beta Theta Pi. With Ken Smith
passing to touchdowns in each of
the second and third periods, the
DU Bees were too much for the
John Randeker was Smith'
favorite target during the after
noon and gathered in both scor
ing tosses, the first for ten yards
and the second for a big 60
yards. Keith Mumby provided
the only two points for the
losers as he blocked a Smith
punt that roiled out of the end
zone in the second canto.
Sig Eps Drop Delts
Friday action was again taken
over by the big boys. Defending
champion Sigma Phi Epsilon won
its second straight contest of the
young season by downing their
chief contender to the crown,
Delta Tau Delta, by a 19-6 tally.
The Sig Eps were unstoppable
In a blazing first half that saw
them cheered to 19 points by
nearly 250 rabid spectators.
Thundering Ted Kratt engi
neered a 60-yard Sig Ep drive to
open the game that saw the
same Kratt crashing over center
the last two yards to score.
The Delts saw one play that
quarter that resulted in a Keith
Skalla pass intercepted by the
rampaging victors. Leading off the
second period, Kratt pushed the
Bill Anderson and still before the
halftime recess Kratt had the third
Sig Ep tally in the form of an endj f
run for 15 yards. I
After a scoreless third stanza,
Delt Skalla sharpened his firing
eye and began to lead bis men
in a fruitless task of overtaking
the winners. One Skalla-led
drive wass topped eight yards
short of paydirt but before the
Sig Eps had time to collect
themselves, the Delts were
knocking again. This time they
cashed in as Skalla fired a per
fect strike to Bert Sample In a
scoring play that covered 25
As the final whistle sounded,
the Delts were back again. Two
plays resulted in no score, how
ever, as the Sig Eps held and took
home a coveted victory.
SAE's Beat Phi Delts I
Sigma Alpha Epsilon in general
and Bill Shamholtz in particular
stopped the Phi Delta Theta win
ning streak at one as the SAE's
romped to a 20-0 win. Smarting
from their 6-21 setback at the
hands of the Sig Eps on Monday,
the Sfg Alphs struck with light
ning in the form of speedy Shain
holtz who scored all three of the
Early In the first period he
took a short pitchoot and
streaked down the sidelines for
62 yards, outrunning the entire
Phi Delt team. Twice in the
fourth stanza he was on the re
ceiving end of scoring passes,
running the final six yards to
the double stripe for the first
and snaring the second in the
end-zone on a pass that traveled
40 yards in the air.

of five years back, who now
coaches football at Mexico high.
At 172 pounds, Skimp is about
at safety last season.
From a technique standpoint,
Backfield Coach Clay Cooper is
sold on Merrifield's play at safety,
"Skimp does the basic things
that are required of his position
well," Cooper says. "He reacts
quickly in the proper directions
as the play develops. He's not
a guesser and knows how to key
off the ends for passes. He co
ordinates his position in good
shape with his halfbacks."

Bordogna snuck over for the score.

On the first play after the
kick - off, William Schabacker
pounced on Dick Cox' fumble
on the Iowa State 32.

the ball on downs.

Nebraska led 7-0 at half time.

second half saw Tackle Jim
Oliver ejected from the game on
a personal foul.
The aroused Huskers moved the
ball from their own 34 to the
Cyclone 27 only to lose the ball on
Iowa State could go nowhere
and Barney Alleman booted to
Reynolds who signaled for a fair
catch on the Nebraska 40.
Reynolds and Cifra moved the
ball to the State 42. Cifra took
the ball through left guard and
with nice blocking sped into the
secondary where he ran through
one tackier and out-ran two
more for the second tally. Reyn
old's try for the PAT went wide.
At the last of the third and be

braska marched from their own
42 to the Cyclone 12 where Smith
fumbled and State recovered.
Iowa State nicked ud a first
