The Husker baseball record dinned to 7-20 following c
doubleheader loss to intrastate campus rival University of
Nebraska at Omaha Tuesday. Losing by scores of 3-0 and
5-4, veteran UNL baseball coach Tony Sharpe felt his squad
"may have been pressing too hard."
The losses mark only the second time in Husker baseball
history UNL has lost as many as 20 games in a season (the
only previous time came in 1971).
Sharpe expressed concern in his teams inconsistent
hitting. "Against Creighton last week we had 12 hits each
game, today we could only muster five hits in two games,"
he said. -
In the second game Wally Knight, Warren Poldberg and
Jim Kantor combined on a 1 -hitter for the Mavericks.
The Husker runs all came in the fourth inning when they
were able to capitalize on wildness by UNO starter Knight
and Poldberg. Three bases on walks and a single by Bryant
Akisada brought on the replacement of Knight. Poldberg
also proved wild and delivered another three bases on walks
and Kantor was called on to finish the inning. Hs pitched

The first threat came in the fifth inning when the Huskers

designated hitter Doak Fowler to end the inning.
In the sixth, a single by Norm Glismann and walks to

is tavern alternative
With times as they are. finals, term papers and other pressures
that confront UNL students this part of the year, there seems to
be an occasional desire to get away from it all.
One of the usual sanctuaries for students seem to be the local
taverns. But there's another place that's close to campus,
inexpensive and open seven days a week.
The place is the Nebraska Union games room. For those who
like to avoid the morning after hangovers and the dent a night on
the town makes in the pocketbook, the games room offers the
second largest assortment of games in the area and a 10 lane
According to Pat Scanlon, program adviser for recreation tn
the Union, "The game room offers poorman's entertainment."
"The bowling alley is the cheapest bowling in town and
starting Friday the lanes will be open every night for the rest of
the semester," Scanlon said. The cost is three lines for $1 on
weekends, 45 cents a line before 5 p.m. on weekdays and 50
cents a line after 5 p.m.
Presently the games room boasts eight billards and two
snooker tables, five foosball tables, about 12 pinball machines,
airhockey and about five other games.
"We're open most of the time and general activity has
increased, so our overall profit is up," commented Scanlon. "This
profit goes into the general Union fund to finance furniture,
equipment, salaries and depreciation to name a few'
Because of the increased use of the games room, new machines
have been bought and remodeling and expansion are planned for
next fall. "Once we get remodeled our game room will be as nice .
as any other university's," Scanlon said.
Scanlon observed that participation is usually 90 male and
10. female even though the number of women seen using the
game room has steadily increased. Making women fee! like they
want fo come to the games room Is another thing Scanlon hopes
the remodeling will accornpjish.
As far 8$ the program ever the summer session is concerned,
Scanlon said, "We'll try to have a complete program this summer.
We're ready, willing and eager to set up anything the students and
