Oklahoma State moved into
sole possession of first place
chase with a doubleheader
victory over Nebraska while
runnerup Iowa State split a
twinbill with Kansas State.
The two Nebraska losses
stretched their losing string
to 10 games and dropped
the Huskers into seventh
place, only two games ahead
of the cellar-dwelling Wild
cats. The only conference
wins for the Huskers came
at the expense of Kansas
State in the opening series
of conference action.
Nebraska trails sixth place
Kansas by only one-half
game and the Jayhawks
come to Lincoln Friday and
Saturday for a three-game
series that will decide sixth
place in the standings.
Less Defeats
Oklahoma State and Iowa
State are even in the win
column but the Cyclones
have lost two more games
than the Cowboys. Iowa
State divided a doubleheader
with Kansas State Saturday
with the Cyclones winning
the opener 2-0 but dropping
the nightcapt 6-5.
The Kansas State victory
in the second game was the
first conference victory of the
season for the Wildcats.
Missouri and Oklahoma
virtually eliminated each
other from the race with a
twinbill split. The Tigers
won the first game 6-5 but

Two Games Out
Both the Tigers and Soon
ers are two games off the
pace with only six games to
play. Colorado is heading the
second' division with a 6-6
mark after losing two of
three to Kansas.
The Nebraska team pre
sents an nnnsual situation
with ten players hitting over
.300 but the Huskers have
lost ten in a row. Actually
there are eleven over the
.300 mark but one of them,
Larry Isaacson, has dropped
from the team.
Leading the Nebraska reg

Redmond (.500), Dick
Becher (.329), Ken Rusinger
(.333), Ron Cougill (.333),
Harry Tolly (.333), Dick Nel
son (.324), Don Vogel (.308),
LeRoy Zentic (.302) and Don
PurceU (.300).
Two of the players topping
the .300 mark weren't includ
ed on last week's traveling
squad to Oklahoma State.
They were Dick Nelson and
Don Vogel and another, Dick
Becher, saw only limited ac
tion. Jerry Harris continues to
lead the team in runs bat
ted in with 17 followed by
Phil Barth with -14. Barth
also leads the Huskers with
five home runs and in strike
outs with 17.

East Discards
South could have prevented
this misfortune by making
some fast discards. If he had
looked ahead to see what tha
opponents were likely to do
he would have seen the dan
gerous if dummy had as few
spades as West.
After winning the first trick
with the ace of spades, South
must cash his three high dia
monds, discarding two spades
from the dummy. Only then
can South afford to lead tht
queen of hearts.
East takes tha ace of hearts
and one spade, but men dum

over, dummy bis the king of
hearts to over-ruff West if
spades are led anyway. The
defenders cannot get a second
trump trick, and South can
draw trumps in safety to
make his contract.

J4 V1084 0 1098$
What do you say?
Answer: Pass. The opening
bid of 2 NT is very strong
and highly invitational, but
not forcing. You need about
four points for a response
and should merely pass with
this one-point hand.
