tournament named its semi-final-Ists
'n three contests Monday
while its counterpart in the fra
ternity division saw two of its
four semi-final outfits named.
Nine more contests remain in the
next six days before the All
University champion for this sea
ton has been crowned.
Defending Independent cham
pion Ag Men's Club gained this
year's semi-finals with a wild
16-12 victory over Vocational Ed
ucation. A pair of eight-run in
nings by each team highlighted
this fray and held the score
knotted at 9-9 before the Ag Men
cut loose again in the fifth with
seven tallies to clinch the victory.
Dick Jiskra, Aggie hurler who
pitched a no-hitter last week, was
coasting along with a two-hit per
formance and a comfortable 9-1
lead at the end of four innings
before the Voc-Eds found their
range. Six hits and five Ag Men
errors made it a new ball game
in the top of the fifth as the un
derdog Voc-Eds crossed the plate
Four hits were all the winners
need in their half of the same
frame to put the game on ice.tother hit off Boich
Coupled with two errors and two
walks, the Ag Men tallied seven
runs and then held the losers to

Jiskra surrendered nine safe
ties, two each to Leo Johnson and
Keith Kreycik while striking out

fair. Rodger Bell, hurling for the
losers, was touched for 14 hits, in
cluding four by right-fielder San

All-University champions of
1951, Practical Arts, won their
fourth of the year and gained
a shot at Ag Men in the semi
finals of the Independent struggle

pitching of Arnie Boich.

way for the victors, one of Cifra's
going the distance. Don Weber
also poled a homer for the PA's.

During the entire indoor season the Huskers were being con

C3 and were figured to be lucky to come out sixth in the seven team
race for honors.
The Huskers gave the spectators something to talk about when
they upset the dope sheets and came in a strong third.
Once again the Cornhuskers are facing the same situation.
They have been cursed during the outdoor season wilh another
plague cf injuries.
At different times during the season the Huskers have shown
occasional spurts on the track and throughout the indoor and out
door competition the fieldmen have definitely kept the Huskers
