End Home Stand:
Nebraska Wins 9-4;
Gleason Wins First
By BOB WIRZ
Staff Sports Writer
Nebraska baseball coach Tony
Sharpe shifted his lineup yester
day and some of the younger
squad members responded in good
fashion. The final outcome had the
Huskers winning a 9-4 game from
Drake and an even break in the
two game series. Drake won the
Monday game 7-2 in 14 innings.
Sophomore hurler Bob Gleason
picked up his 'first win of the- sea
son. Gleason started, on the mound
for Nebraska and hurled six in
nings giving up six hits and four
runs. Two of the markers came
on a long home run blast by third
baseman Jim Deets with John
Frangos on first base in the sixth
inning. This was Gleason's second
start of the season and he racked
up six strike outs ,in the six
frames that he worked. Another
sophomore Dwight Siebler came
on for the Huskers in the seventh
and did not allow a Drake hit the
final three innings.
Nebraska was paced offensively
by Frank Nappi, John Douthit, Al
Newbill, and Gary Reimers. Nappi,
who is finally rounding into shape,
continued his hitting streak with
three for five. He scored two runs
and also came up with two bril
liant plays at third base.
Douthit getting his first big
chance of the season doubled his
first time to the plate driving in
Larry Lewis with the Huskers sec
ond run. Newbill drove three Husk
ers across the plate with a triple
in Inning number three. Reimers
was shifted from leadoff position
to the number three post and drove
in two runs with a clean single
over snort in the big Husker sev.
enth. Reimers scored two runs as
did Nappi and Jim Kuback.i.
ine Dig change in the contest
was defensively where Nebraska
were playing flawless ball after
making eight miscues in the open
ing game or the series.
The Drake squad did not give up
without a battle. The Huskers
opened scoring with two runs in
the first and Drake got the same
amount in the second inning on
two hits and a passed ball. Once
more Nebraska countered in the
fifth with NewbilPs big triple. Jack
Kaley's squad bounced back again
and scored on Deets homer in the
Nebraska rounded out the scor
ing with a four run burst in the
seventh. All Nebraska runs were
scored at the expense of .Drake
starter Bill Fain. He was lifted in
favor of lefty Dale Bennett in the
seventh inning upsurge. Bennett
had been working in the bull pen
most of the afternoon as well as
most of the time yesterday and
Gene Torczon greeted him with a
long double to left.
The contest was halted for about
ten minutes after the seventh in
ning when Lincoln was blessed by
a short thunder shower.

The University of Oklahoma spring football report arrived at the
office over the weekend. The Sooner brass is taking no chances and
lists the 1957 outlook as "uncertain."
Wilkinson has lost 18 lettermen, seven of whom were starters.
Gone are quarterback Jimmy Harris, left halfback Tommy McDonald,
fullback Billy Pricer, left tackle Ed Gray, center Jerry Tubbs, right
tackle Tom Emerson and right end John Bell. Also Wayne Greenlee,
starting left tackle, who broke his leg in the opening North Carolina
game. The Oklahoma coach will have to build his team around left
end Don Stiller, left guard Joe Oujesky, right guard Bill Krisher and
right halfback Clendon Thomas.
In addition to Big Seven schools, the Oklahoma 1057 schedule will

Senators-Redox Swap ...
The player swap betweeen the Washington Senators and the Boston
Bed Sox could be beneficial to both teams. The Senators have one of
the better fielding shortstops in the majors in their lineup, but Milt
Boiling would insert a little more batting punch, Faye Throneberry,
a good hitter was very popular in Boston, and could become the key
player in the deal should playing regularly agree with him. Russ Kem
merer, who spent last year with San Francisco, is Just an incidental
in the deal, although he can do nothing but help the sagging Washing
ton pitching staff.
As far as "Pinky" 'Higgins is concerned, Dean Stone is the man
the Bosox skipper is really interested in. What with only two left
handers on the roster, the 26 year old southpaw should step into a
regular starting assignment. As far as I'm concerned, Bob Chakales
will be the big surprise for Higgins. Chakales was quite busy as a
reliefer last summer as he was called upon time and time again by
Charlie Dressen to try and save the floundering Senators. On paper
it looks like the Senators have the -best of the trade, but you can never
tell in baseball.
Big Surprise . . .
Everyone concerned received a stiff Jolt at the Drake-Nebraska
baseball game Monday afternoon. The Drake squad consisted of only
12 men dressed in battered uniforms. The first impression I got was
that Tony Sharpe would have a hard time keeping the score down.
After I found out that the leading hitter was left at home, I was ready
for an overwhelming Nebraska victory.
Once the game got rolling, however, it was a different story. Drake
took advantage of their scoring opportunities and fought the Huskers
on even terms for 13 innings. In the fourteenth inning, Drake tallied
five times to pull the big upset.
A big pat on the back U In order for Bulldog pitcher Frank Ander
son, who went the route to pick up his first win of the season. He was
very effective and seemed to get stronger as he went along. Dean
Flock and Jim Kubacki hurled creditable ball for the Huskers, but you
can't win ball games when you boot the ball around or take a third
strike when you have runners in scoring position. '

With the Big Seven outdoor
meet coming up in the near future,
(May 17-18), I was looking at some
old records that have stood as All
Time marks. In these records, the
Big Seven has to take a place be
hind no one.
Here's one: The record for the
century run held by Hubert Meier
of Iowa State with a time of :09.4.
Wes Santee holds two records that
will not soon be broken or that
will compare to any in the nation.
His are in the 880-yard run and
the mile run where he has been
clocked with a 1:50.8 and a 4:06.3
Action runs fast and furious in

play. The Beta Theta. Pi's earned
their berth by defeating the Delta
Tau Delta's 11-8. Alpha Tau Ome

The ATO's engaged in a high-scoring
game with Phi, Delta Theta
and won 15-8.
The fraternity "White" tourney
also gained a semitinalist when Al

The Story of
complete field of seven, will this
year be vying for top laurals in
the meet. The addition of many
new members to Coach Frank
Sevigne'i harriers has bolstered
the mentor's hopes greatly for a
fine showing in the Big Seven
Last year the best performanc
displayed by a Cornhusker was
Larry Smith's 158 feet 10 inch toss
of the discus which merited
third place. Len Rosen placed fifth
in that event. Ken Reiners placed
sixth in the shotput for the Husk
ers to add to their meager total
of points while Hugh Osmera ran
sixth in the mile. Dale Knotek
grabbed a tie for fifth in the high
jump competition and Nebraska's
mile relay group placed fourth to
round out the Husker scoring. Tha
total of these places brought tha
Nebraska scoring composite to
dismal 15 points.
Since the 1956 running of tha
Big Seven outdoor meet the Husk
er harriers have made many ad
ditions to their squad and Sevigna
now can boast that the Nebras
kans should place well in the up
per division. Such men as B o b
Elwood, Bill Marten, Bill Hawk
ins and Dean Brittenham have im
proved greatly over the past year
and have proved themselves perti
nent fixtures to the thinclad crew.
Probably the greatest asset to
the coach is the addition of Keith
Gardner to the squad. The Jamai
can Jet streaked to two seconds
and one first in the Big Seven in
door as well as running third with
the mile relay team to captura
high scoring honors of the meet.
The Jet will probably add many
points toHhe Husker total in this
year's outdoor meet.
Other men such as Ken Pollard,
Goose Gausman, Knolly Barnes,
Dick Jahr, Don Phillips, Al Rosen,
and Chuck Wollaston cannot be
denied their talents either. These
men have been scoring steadily
for the Husker crew and should be
in peak condition for the meet.
The University of Kansas who
have copped the classic for the
past five times have the edge over
the rest of the Big Seven schools
but they will be hard pressed by
Missouri and especially Nebraska,
