As the dog quietly draws the cart along tote roads, Jordan keeps keen eyes on surrounding woods. The veteran Eddington guide uses an old nuzzle loader with a single ball.

In addition. Sinkwich knocked down two Tech passes aimed at receivers on the goal-line. When the game was over.

(UP) — This city continues to celebrate -.vhat it conMders the biggest moment since the territory of Nebrask i became' one of ihe 48 states. Nebraska's football team has been •re3 \o the Ross Bowl and "there is not one citizen who, ;;ince the invitation came from Pasadena, •.as tailed to show his apprecia- ion.

The students yanked , down the order of business from the bulletin board, shouted a yell of triumph through the chancellor's window, and started parading through the streets to the tune of "California.

He appeared at a bedroom window in his pajamas and gave the rally his blessing. "Come on and join us." ihe thousands of students and townsfolk shouted, "we're up for the night and celebrating."

NEW YORK, Dec. 3 (UP)—Statistics usually make dull reading but a couple of Texans named Baugh and O'Brien combined this year to make the final learn figures for the National Football League interesting enough for any grid fan.

And as they talked, you :ould not help but feel that they were not going to California for personal glory, but rather to justify ill this excitement over their choice as n Ros-? Bowl team, all this civic diphtheria, all this howling by light and day. I'm not picking the winner of the Rose Bowl now. because I always reserve my judgment until I am fully convinced of the loser, but I would like to sav this: The STEAK SANDWICHES SERVED from the wind-swept, snow- swept, sleet-swept steppes and plains of Nebraska are either going to win, or they're going down vyith their long drawers on. They are not going to be scared. When you have to call the weather bureau to find out whether or not you can rim a flanker play, you're not going to be scared where you can see orange groves over your shoulder.
