Through the courtesies of Bobby
Newman's deft right arm and Jack
Farming's sticky fingers the Wash
ington State Cougars completely
anialated the Nebraska Cornhusk
ers Saturday drubbing the home
team by a score of 34-12.
There were 31,000 fans who wit
nessed the onslaught which proved
to be one of the poorest played
games by a Nebraska team in
From the very outset of the con-
: test the Washington State club
j completely dominated the stadium
scene wlith its passing techniques
. and did not relent until the final
Although Washington State was
the victor, it was quarterback Bob
Newman who remained solely re-
j sponsible for the Husker defeat.
Newman was second in the Pacific
Coast League last year in passing
and Saturday began a seige of ;
passing- for this season that could j
,net him the top notch in that de-!

Ties Prominent In Openei
Iowa State Dovns Denver

Staff Sports Writer
Iowa State, rated to finish in
the Big Eight cellar, was the only
team other than Oklahoma to sal
vage a victory in the conference
in last Saturday's season openers.
The Cyclones made their debut
as a single-wing team a success
with a 10-0 victory over a fumbling
Denver University team. Iowa
State looked like a much different
team than the one which finished
in the cellar last year with a 2-8
Iowa State tasted first in the
second period on a 37-yard field
goal by tackle Lyle Carlson. The
Cyclones gained their field goal
attempt by recovering a punt
which was bohb'ed by Denver on
their own 30-yard line. Iowa State
could not advance the ball in three
p'.ays so Carlson calmly stepped
back and booted the field goal.
The Cyclones came back after
the halftime break to start a 62
yard touchdown drive. The drive
was sparked by a long pass from
tailback Dwight Nichols to end Jim
Stueike. and a deceptive reverse
by halfback Jim Lary. Nichols
capped the scoring drive by cir
cling the end for the final six
yards. Carlson converted to make
the score 10-0.
It was Iowa State's first shutout
since it blanked Drake, 33-0, in
All-Big Seven end. Jim Letcavits
made a spectacular catch on the
last play of the game to spark
the KarjS-as Jayhawk's to a 13-13

muddy 12-0 game to Arkansas.
The Cowboy's staved off several
Arkansas scoring threats in the
first half, but Arkansas was not
to be denied as they came roaring
back to tally two touchdowns in
the last half.
Arkansas played a conservative

running and Newman's passing
put the Washington State club on
the 2'i yard line with seven min
utes to go in the half. A familiar
combination teamed up to earn six
more points for the Cougars. New
man passed to Fanning in the cor-
ner of the end zone to run the
' State total to 13.
Next it was Bunny Aldrich's
turn at the Cojgar helm. Aldrich
was in just long enough to add to
the Cougar scoring total. After a
50 yard punt hy Jerry Brown of
the Scarlet and Cream, Aldrich
flipped passes to lead the WSC
crew to another six-pointer. His

kickotf, Tolly recovered a fumble
created by a Jerry Brown tackle.
Three plays later the Huskers
tightened the score hy six points
when Tolly crashed over from the
one inch line. Naviaux's kick was
no good to leave the score re
maining at 20-12.
From this point on the game
turned into a free-for-all highlight
ed by fumbles, interceptions, and
sloppy playing. With one minute
left in the third chapter of the tilt
Newman again found Fanning in
the end zone to chalk up his third
TD pass of the game. His point
after touchdown pushed up the
Cougar point total and pushed
down the Husker spirit.
The fourth quarter playing con
sisted of every infraction of basic
football fundamentals on the part
of both teams. Mid-way in the
quarter Moreil of WSC charged
over from the four yard line to
conclude the scoring for both
sides as well as to break up the
monopoly of pass touchdowns.
Jones kicked the conversion to
give Washington a total of 34
pints to 12 tallies for the Huskers.
AH tolled, the statistics show the
story of the game very well, other
than firt downs of which the
Scarlet and Cream netted only one
less than the Washington team.
The stellar players of the game
were most of the Washington team
plus McCashland on the line for
the Huskers and Dillard in the
backfiekl for the Jennings crew.
