It is hard to pick out one single
hero of the fifth World Series game
but in Milwaukee it does not mat
ter too much. The important thing
is that their Braves defeated the
New York Yankees yesterday 1-0
The hero could be any one of
several fellows. Lew Burdette
hurled his second win of the series
in giving the home towners a 8-2
margin in games won. Burdette
gave up but seven hits in going the
distance. They were well scattered
with one coming in. each of the
first four frames.
Or, Joe Adcock could be the hero.
It was the big first baseman that
drove the games only run home
with a single in the sixth inning.
Left fielder Wes Covington could
also be the star as he made the
fielding play of the game to save
a possible Yank run from scoring.
Covington also stood out defensive
ly in the second game of the se
ries with Burdette pitching.
The contest was a pitchers duel
all the way with Whitey Ford and
Burdette matching each other pitch
for pitch until the bottom half of
the sixth inning when the Braves
scored their only tally. It appeared
that Ford would escape trouble
again in this frame but three
straight singles, two of the fluke
variety, with two men out enabled!
the home team to score a run. I
Ed Mathews, who won yesterdays
game with a dramatic tenth inning '
home run, led off the parade with'
a infield roller, Yankee Second ;
baseman Jerry Coleman waited for1
the ball to come to him and then
hurried his throw but it was too
late to get the hustling Mathews.
Hank Aaron was next and the cen-
terfiekier hit a Texas leaguer in
front of Hank Bauer with Mathews
going to third. Then, Adcock got
the third hit in succession and for!
all practical purposes the game
The Yankees got one man on
base in each of the next three
frames but could not dent the scor.

gy backfired in the eighth inning.
The old professor sent the injured
Mickey Mantle in to run for Cole
man in the eighth with one out and
then brought up Elston Howard to
bat for Ford. Howard had tied yes
terdays garce with his ninth inning
homer but this time Burdette fan

was next but Mantle was thrown
out attempting to steal before the
leadoff hitter had a chance to do
The ninth inning saw Gil Mc
Douglad single with two out but
Yogi Berra popped out to end the
inning and the game.
The sixth contest and tie final
one if Milwaukee wins will be
played in Yankee Stadium Wednes
day. The Yankees must win two
games in a row if they want to re.
main the world champions for 1957.
Milwaukee also played without
one of it's stars for most of the
game. Second baseman Red
Schiendienst was injured in the
first inning and was forced to leave
the contest. Felix Mantilla filled in
for the redhead. Whether either
Schiendienst or Mantle will be
ready for the Wednesday contest
had not been determined at the
time this article was written.
Pitching plans also are incom
plete but a good guess would be
Bob Buhl for the Braves and Bob
Turley or Don Larsen for the Yan.

Basefeallitis Hits Campus . . .
Tbe University campus seems to have been hit with an epidemic
of flu or some orher type of contagious disease arriving with the
opening game of the World Series.
Instructors oa the campus have been deluded with excuses from
their pupils ranging from the flu to "slipprng in the bathtub." All of
the chronic injuries and illnesses seem to have a profound effect o:i
the attendance of the classes this past week and the beginning of
Shis week. Strangely enough, the mysterious bug doesn't strike until
the early afternoon and runs until about 3.00 p m. Doctors diagnoses
have found no cause for the strange illnesses of these healthy looking
hypochondriacs but from al! indications the rage should be past
in a day or two. Wish the World Series, the epidemic will pass from the

One "Big Man on Campus' stated that the football team had
no spirit and that an internal uprising had been develooing within
the ranks of tbe grid squad itself. This peerless superior 'could have

jerry crown, Au-c.g seven ruiioacK last year commented on
Ust Saturday's game on tbe Thursday before.
"No one bas given up. Remember, we've played two tough teams.
"I'm not a betting man but if I was, I'd put every cent of my
money on a Nebraska victory Saturday at Kansas State."
When tbe players took off for Kansas State last weekend a rally
wm held to give them a rousing sendoff. The cheerleaders. Bob
MarteU Daily Nebraskan Sports Editor, and a handful of unidentified
students displayed their school spirit by attending the rally.
Judging solely from the number of students turning out for the
rally to aend off the players, I would say the lack of school spirit
seems to lie in fault with the students rather than the team. The
matriculants of the University seem to be neglecting a traditional
school custom which is to stand behind the team whether it is
winning or losing. The infraction of this custom by the students mir
rors where the fault lies rather than with the squad itself.
Maybe the "BMOC" was misled by a few reports from his frie.ods,
but whatever tbe answer, the Husker football team proved-to him.
as well as the other students in school, that their spirit was good
enough to win. Their rousing 14-7 win over the Wildcats of Kansas
State proved their will to win. If the students of this fair school
eoulu display some of tLe same spirit maybe the -Nebraska football
fans would have a team to be proud of. What do you think?
