The Red ha"d to come back
from an early White drive to
take a victory, 21-15, from a
surprisingly stubborn White
The Saturday night intra-
squad game at Seacrest Field
climaxed 20 days of spring
practice for the Husker grid-
ders and was the only bright
spot in a dismal All-Sports
Day program.
Tony Jeter kicked off for
the White squad, a short kick
that rebounded off of R o n
Mlchka and recovered by Je
ter. The Whites converted the
Red error into a 41 yard TD
in 11 plays climaxing with
Frank Solich's five- yard
sweep around right end tally
ing the TD. Duncan Drum
split the goalposts for the con
version. Lightning then struck in the
form of Kent McCloughan,
Red halfback. M c C 1 o u g h
an grabbed the White kickoff
and raced 88 yards for a Red
tally. Quarterback Dennis
Claridge ran to the right on
a keeper which accountered
for a two point conversion and
the Reds led, 8-7.
In the second period Clar
idge went to the airways en
route to a perfect night's pass
ing, hitting 7-7. to score the
first of two Red TD's in the
second period.
The second Red TD came
just six plays after the White
punted at the start of the sec
ond quarter. Claridge used
everyone of his backs in the
Left halfback Willie Ross
hit right end for ten yards,
Claridge kept for six more,
fullback Gene Young boomed
for three and right halfback
Rudy Johnson blasted for
nine on a quick opener to put
the ball on the White 25.
Young hit for three more to
set up a Claridge to Larry
Tomlison pass for a 22-yard
TD pass.
Yearling halfback Ted Vac
tor took the Red kickoff and
nearly repeated McCloughan's
feat but Ross stopped him af
ter he had gone 52 yards with
the ball.
Tigers Nearly Blank Huslcers
As Missouri Remains On Top
Bornschlegl Run
Saves NU Smear
Nebraska's diamond crew
nearly ran into a blank wall
this weekend as they met
the nation's no. one team,
Missouri, in a head on colli
sL?i on the Husker field.
Mizzou nearly shutout the
Husker '9' but the Cornhusk
ers managed to push across
one run in the last inning of
the finale on a Tiger miscue.
In the Friday twinbill ac
tion the Bengal visitors
blanked the Huskers behind
the pitching of Larry Bohan
uon and Rich Peterson.
Bohannon blanked the Husk
ers in the opener for his fifth
win against two losses, giving
up only six hits and allowing
no walks while striking out
He received support from
the field and was backed by
ten hits from his teammates
including a 370-footer homer
by Dave Havey.
Peterson tossed a one-hitter
against the NU squad with
Dave May getting the only
Husker hit, a single in t h e
sixth. He walked five and
struck out five.
Friday's losses were
charged to Ron Havecost now
1-5, and to Jan Wall now 3-3.
In Saturday's finale the
Huskers managed one run in
the ninth when Larry Born
schlegl singled and moved to
third on a single by Dave
With one out Tom Ernst
hit a sharp grounder back to
third baseman Dave Harvey
who fired to second baseman
Bob Price who bobbled the
ball. Price picked it up in
time to get May but Born
schlegl went on home for the
lone Husker run of the ser
ies. The win boosted the Mis
souri record to 15-2 while
the Husker record slumped to
5-12. The Husker diamond
squad will meet Oklahoma
State at Stillwater. I
But the White attack, be
hind the guidance of Fred
Duda, bogged down on the
Red 35.
A Red attack bogged down
after a 13 yard pass from
Claridge to Dick Callahan and
they were forced to boot.
Henry Woods intercepted a
White pass and returned it to
the White 21. Doug Tucker
then intercepted a Red pass
in the end zone to stop the
drive on the seven yard line.
Dave Lebsack, freshman
quarterback from Lincoln
Northeast, set up the f i n a 1
Red touchdown with an inter
cepted pass and a 42-yard run
to the White three.
Lebsack then pitched to
Poggemeyer on the first play
from scrimmage to hit pay
dirt. Frank Solich scored the fi
nal tally of the game in the
third quarter for the White
team when he went in from
the four yard line.
Duda du-ected the White
drive that went 73 - yards
to end in paydirt.
Solich accounted for 37 of
the yards on a 20-yard scam
per and caught a one-hander
from Duda for 17 more.
Fullback Bruce Smith con
tributed two carries for 18
yards in the drive. Another
pass to Jeter was good for
six to keep the drive alive.
Duda added a two point con
version to end the scoring, 21
17. The Reds threatened to
score three more times, once
in the third and twice in the
fourth period, but failed to hit
Duda and Doug Tucker ap
peared to have the Whites in
a position to win the game or
at least tie it in the third quar
ter. The drive came to a halt
when defensive halfback Mike
Kennedy pilfered a T u c k e r
Claridge put the Reds in an
other position to score on two
passes to Callahan for 19
yards, a Young run for four
more, and two keepers for
another 16 yards.
The bid stalled on the 24

loss in the finale although he
was retired after facing the
first eight Bengal hitters. Er

mound to quiet the Tiger
Rightfielder Tom Ernst was
the standout in the finale as
he made a couple of saves
that could have gone all the
way. He made a leaping over-the-shoulder
catch of McAr
tor's lone fly to end the sixth,
then robbed Jim Sevcik with
a shoe-string grab in the sev
enth. Missouri blasted the Husk
ers for 12 hits and played er
rorless ball. John Sevcik and
Gene McArtor accounted for
three apiece. All Mizzou hits
were singles with the o n 1 y

being Husker Don Schindel's
lead-off double in the first

there was considerable shift

when a new unit took the
helm and missed a first down
by a yard.
With 48 seconds left in the
game foggemeyer stole a
White pass and returned it to
the White 27. Lebsack then
picked up 11 yards on three
carries to run out the clock.
Solich was the game's top
ground gainer with 56 net
yards while Young was the
top ball carrier for the Reds
with 31 followed by Pogge
meyers 24 and Ross's 18.
Smith hit for 30 and Bob
Hohn went for 26 for the
Duda passed 11 times for
46 yards, hitting 4 receivers
and one enemy receiver.
Tucker hit one for ten and
one of his were intercepted.
Lebsack passed three times,
connecting one for 11 yards.
The White squad outfought
the Reds in first down pro
ductions but the Reds outdid
them on the ground, 189-139.
Coach Bob Devaney was a
spectator in the press box
during the scrimmage as his
aides handled the sideline du
Devaney thought the scrim
mage went well except for the
"basketball" tactics used by
the White squad during the
second quarter as they passed
resulting in a sloppy second
Devaney thought that this
year's team is ahead of last
year's pace. He commented
that they hadn't made any
great progress last week but
the hitting was good and the
gridders are in better position
than they were last year at
the end of drills.
He said that the main thing
in spring practice is to find
who can help you and what
positions you can use them to
best advantage.
Duda seemed to earn the
No. two quarterback spot be
hind Claridge as he led the
No. two team. But Devaney
said that the other quarter
backs still have possibilities.
Devaney cited Duda, Solich, j
Hohn, Smith and Chuck Doep
ke for turning in outstanding
performances for the White
Willie Ross, Gene Young
and Rudy Johnson received
the praise from the Red back
field. 0

Sports Day activity. Next

Nebraska's 440-yard relay
team smashed three records
at once when they clipped off
their event in :40.9. The stad-
i ium and varsity record was
:41.0 set by Keith Young,
Tom Hodson, Dick Jahr and
Keith Gardner in 1958. It was
also a meet record as h 1 s ,
was the first time this event:
has been run in a Missouri-
Nebraska dual.
Mike Fleming of Nebraska
set a new record in the mile;
as he was caught in 4:1.1.3
after a thrilling finish barely
