Roy "Link" Lyman, Husker line coach, and erstwhile Grant county rancher, came to market Wednesday with a consignment of cattle. The Nebraska football squad lost a number tf its best men by graduation last season, Lyman said, but the team is going to have two great lines nevertheless. Any shortage of material will be in the backfield. "We could use more good backs," Lyman said, "but taking the squad as a whole, we ought to have enough power to come thru header from the St. Louis Browns, 3-2 and 7-2, and Washington beat the Athletics, 5-4.

Bob Feller limited the Browns to seven hits, three of them scratches, to score his third victory for the season. Cubs Trim Pittsburgh. Clay "Curly Hair" Bryant, pitched the Chicago Cubs to a 5-1 triumph over Pittsburgh and increased the Cubs' National league lead to 64 games over the idle Giants. Bryant allowed only five hits in besting Red Lucas. Galan hit homer No.

The Red Sox had to fight uphill in both games. They tied the first game, 4-4, in the ninth but the tension was too much for them. They cracked wide open in the 14th and the Yanks poured over four runs. In the second game the Yanks got away to a four run lead and the Red Sox fought valiantly to tie the score, 4-4. But the Yanks slammed over six runs in the sixth.

Never a Dull Moment. The Yanks always put on a big show. They almost precipitated a free for all in the tenth inning of the first game. Jake Powell got caught in a rundown between second and third and charged into Pinky Higgins. The players squared away but the umpires quickly quelled the uprising.

Myril Hoag crashed into Catcher Moe Berg in the first game, and Berg had to retire. Catcher Gene DeSautels was tossed out of the first game for protesting decisions on balls and strikes by Umpire Kolls, and First Baseman Jimmy Foxx had to go behind the bat.

CHICAGO. (Copyright. 1937, UP). One more broken bone and one more laceration and the Chi cago Cuba will break the mark lor injuries established by tne om Baltimore Orioles, the writer learned In an exclusive interview with the registered nurse who keeps the log book on the Chicago team. 'Yes" the nurse told me as she busily whitUed on a crutch, "when Rip Collins cracked his ankle sliding home two days ago, It marked our I7tn casualty oi uie season.

The Orioles' record is 19. We are tied with them on broken fingers, twisted ligaments, and snapped vertebrae, but are shy one broken bone and laceration, i don't want to appear boastful, for fear it will Jinx us, but I honestly believe we have a grand chance to set a new record." Gabby Chief Victim. The nurse dabbed her ears with a dash of Eau de Sloan's and asked if I would care to see the log book a handsoma tome bound in ad hesive tane and profusely illus trated with x-rays. As I thumbed thru its pages I Jotted down me 1937 Hub iniuries: Curt Davis, in jured arm; Tex Carleton, chipped elbow: Bob nana; Gabby Hartnett, strainea arm; Gabby Hartnett, injured shoulder; Gabbv Hartnett relnjured shoul der: Gabbv Hartnetx, rereiniurea shoulder: Larry French, broken rieht hand: Ken O'Day.

"A fine team spirit," I com mented. "Nearly every man on tne sauad has contributed something." "Yes," the nurse beamed, "the men have been splendid. Especially Mr. Hartnett Without a word or complaint, he has carried along the bovs who are in an injury slump. We are counune quite a du on Cavaretta and Hack.

I don't mind tellino- vou. Those two haven't been able to break a thing, but now that thev know we are so near a record I am sure they will come thru." Endorsement Offers. The nurse also revealed to me that if the Cubs win the pennant the players will make more money out of the National leajrue title than any other players in history. "Offers for endorsements are slmnlv rolllnsr in," she said. "Al mot a.s manv as requests for autographed x-rays'.

Here, are few of the offers that came In last week." Middle Illinois Iodine company: $2,500 for a group picture of the team admiring a bottle of iodine. Hiram L.
