Nebraska Drops Tough
Oklahoma A&M Twice
Another fine pitching per
formance by lefty Fran Hof
maier and some lusty hitting by
Centerflelder J 1 m Cederdahl
highlighted a pair of Nebraska
baseball wins over a good Okla
homa A&M team In Lincoln
during the weekend. The Aggies
had earlier beaten their power
ful neighbors, the Oklahoma
..Hofmaler pave up a lone run
and eight hits In Saturday's con
test to pick up his fifth straight
triumph without a setback. The
Huskers won behind the ace
southpaw 3-1. In Friday's game
they dropped the Aggies 9-4. . .
Cederdahl rattled off four hits
In seven official trips to the
plate to pace the Husker hitters
during the two-game sweep. In
cluded In the barrage were three
singles and a second-game three
bagger. Fred Soger, Nebraska's
leading hitter and regular sec
ond baseman, had his 15-game
hitting streak busted In the sec
ond contest. Seger failed to get
a hit In five tries after getting
two singles In Friday's game.
In the opening meeting be
tween the two clubs, lefty Brian
Sleveri made his first start of

Shines At End
By now it is fairly certain John
Anderson will be playing his third
different position in as many
years in a Kansas football uni
form next autumn.
He has been running at rlfht
end during spring practice, where
he represents one of the most
important personnel switches
wrought by the new bossman,
Chuck Mather. Last year, the
brawny Grand Island, Neb. senior-to-be
was the Jayhawks third
ranking ball carrier and 16th
hlfh in the Big Seven with 331
net yards In 70 attempts from
fullback. And he did not assume
full-time first-string status until
As a sophomore, Anderson
started one game, and played in
eight others, at offensive center.
He had been a fullback as a
freshman and a senior at Grand
Island High. As a prep sopho
more and junior he was a tackle.
This means the broad-backed
two-sport hand ... he also is a
double-letterman in basketball
... likely will be the most ef
fectively versatile Jayhawk grid
der since Red Ettinger. The lat
ter started games at fallback,
center and tackle during the im
mediate pre-war and post-war pe
riod. He also saw service at end
as a yearling and now is playing
guard in the Canadian league.
Ettinger was good enough too,
to be named all-conference tackle
in 1947, and all-NFL with the
pros as a rookie guard in 1948.
Anderson isn't accepting his
switch of position at such a pace,
but his rapid improvement following-
a halting start is enough
to warrant opinion that he may
be a good end next autumn.
"John is beginning to enjoy
himself at end and has a chance
to be a good one," says Dick
Piskoty, Mather's lieutenant in

who are asked to handle new as
signments in their final season,
Anderson feels his previous ex.
perience at other slots will help
him at end.
"That year at center helped
me because It got me used to
line play," he explains. "Playing
at fullback last year got me used
to pass patterns and open field
blocking, which an end Is re
quired to do. I also had a lot of
outside responsibility as a line
backer and that has helped me on
the defense at end. .
"The things that are giving me
most trouble right now are keep
ing my head up in blocking and
learning to block without that
running start you get from full
back. But I m going to like this
position the more I improve.
Anderson is likely to be men
ace next autumn in the receiv
ing department. He is an excep
tionally agile basketball perfor
mer despite his 210-pound bulk
and proved last year at full that
he can run over hardy tacklers
in a scattered secondary. He did
not field a single pass all last
season as the Jayhawks used that
Anderson's shift to end is not
difficult to understand. With D: :k

Softball Meet In Full Swing;
Arnie Boich Again Hurls Well
By FRANK SORENSON
Sports Staff Writer
Only eight teams remain un
beaten in the Intramural Soft
ball tourney. Heading the list
of the victorious is the powerful
Industrial Arts team led by
Pitcher Arnie Boich.
Boich, who has twirled for one
of the top amateur teams in the
country during the summer, was
a unanimous choice for the most
valuable player in 1-M softball
He has pitched in one game
this year, allowing only one hit
and no runs while he and his
teammates were blasting Uni
versity YMCA 18-0. That game
was the fourth one-hit game
Boich has pitched and the hit
was the sixth he has allowed in
his two years here.
In the Fraternity A tourney
Beta Theta Pi pushed thejr way
to the semifinals of the tourney
with a close 3-2 win over the
ATOs. The winners had pre
viousely stunned the . Sig Eps
and the Sig Alphs while the
losers had edged the Sigma Chis
and the Delts.
Meanwhile, Phi Kappa Psl

Another one of the so-called
"Impossibles" of track and field
competition was broken over the
weekend. Husky Parry O'Brien,
a former Southern California
athlete, tossed the shot put an
amazing 60 feet, 5Vi inches to
break his own world's record
Saturday in Los Angeles. Earlier
in the week Great Britain's
Roger Bannister had become
the first distance ace to run ths
magic four-minute mile.

Chief Husker hope is Big Ken
Reiners, Indianola Junior, who
last Saturday against Missouri
heaved the shot put 51-feet-2

was a 51-3 toss off a board take
off during an indoor meet.
Ladd Hanscom, Lincoln broad

distance to 22 feet-6 inches
against Missouri. Jon McWil

leaped 22-9 indoors but has
done only 21-3 outside this
spring. Number two outdoor
jumper is Ray Kelley, Danbury,
who also is a high jumper. Kelley
has a 21-10y mark to his credit.
In the high jump, Phil Hel

against Missouri, while Merle

the scoring record for the year
while blasting Theta Chi 22-3.
Meanwhile, in the only lower
bracket game, Tau Kappa Ep
