THE LINCOLN STAR-FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 1931 Victory for Freshmen In Battle SIXTEEN Yearlings Go Across to Only Touchdown On Forward Pass Plays BY GREGG McBRIDE. "Veterans" of the 1934 Cornhusker football squad ara looking sharply toward a spirited defense of their varsity positions when Coach Dana X. Bible assembles the University of Nebraska squad next September. An enthusiastic band of freshmen served notice on the vets Thursday afternoon when the Blue team of yearlings slapped a 6-0 defeat on the Reda in the final game of the spring training season. Yearlings Score On Passes. Two well-executed pass plays, with Henry "Chief" Bauer on the throwing end and Lester McDonald. Grand Island tall boy, and Lloyd Cardwell, Seward's versatile athlete, covered 78 yards and netted the touchdown. The spectacular flips came In the dying moments of the second quarter, the final pass to Cardwell covering 28 yards and giving the Seward boy an opportunity to sprint 12 yards across the final chalk-mark. While the Blues resorted to the a'f lanes to produce the winning touchdown, their margin of superiority was even more decisive than the score Indicates. At no time was the Red team able to get nearer than 20 yards of the Blue goal, while the frosh on at least three occasions were In position to file strong scoring bids. - Going into a stiff wind, the Blues chalked up two first downs during the first quarter, Cardwell breaking away for 12 yards and then taking a pass from Bauer for 13 yards more. The veteran line stiffened at this point and a punt soon had the Blues back In their own territory. Cardwell Goes Across. Given the wind advantage during the second quarter, Douglas passed to Cardwell for a 52-yard gain to start the second period. The Blues were headed toward a touchdown, but Johnny Williams broke up the rally with a pass interception on the Reds' 15-yard line. The first half apparently was due to be finished without a score, that is, until the last two minutes of play. Fourth down and eight to go, Bauer faded back and shot a pass to McDonald, which the Grand Island boy caught and carried to the Reds' 40-yard line. The next play found Bauer passing to Card-well for the touchdown. The Blue threatened again In the third period, Howell breaking loose for 20 yards after fumbling a wild pass from center. Howell's sprint gave the Blues the ball In midfleld and Bauer slipped through center for 15 yards and Scofleld took a pass for 15 yards more. The Blues faltered at this point and the threat faded when a pass intended for Hale missed connections in the end sone. A recovered fumble gave the frosh another opportunity and Bauer picked up a first down on the Reds' eight-yard line, but running -plays failed and - the - Reds opened the final period with the wind advantage. Bin Line Stands Test. The fourth period found the Blue line putting up a great defense and the best the Reds could offer was a last-minute pass, Skewes to Benson, which placed the ball deep in Blue territory as the game ended. The best Red threat was early In the game when Lanoue and Benson gained two first downs on running plays, advancing the ball well Into Blue territory. Bauer Intercepted a pass to turn the tide. Standouts In the Blue forward wall Included McDonald, Scofleld. Ellis, Ugal, White and Stenten, while Howell, Cardwell and Bauer looked good In the backfield, with Douglas backing up the frosh line In good style. Meier, Justice, Thompson and Echerer looked best of the Red linemen, with Skewes. Lanoue and Williams doing most of the work for the Red backfield, which had a rather bad afternoon. The Thursday victory was the first win of the spring season for the Blue team. The Reds won two games by close margins and the other contest resulted In a 14-14 deadlock.

DUNLAP KEEN TO TACEE BRITISH American Champ Anxious Get to Going In 1934 Golf Campaign. BY BOB CAVAGNARO. NEW YORK. .April 13-rO?) George Terry Dunlap, Jr., Is not given to making predictions, but the TJ. S. amateur golf champion said today that he feels "especially keen" about the British amateur crown, a title that has been won by only two Americans Jess Sweet-ser In 1926 and Bobby Jones in 1930. By "especially keen" he meant that his game as well as his eagerness to win, was at a high pitch. "I never forecast my chances before a tournament," the sandy-haired champion said. "There are some tournaments I know I should win, for instance the North and South amateur at Pinehurst. Usually, however, I play the best I know how and let fate decide the rest." It was the reigning British champion. Hon. Michael Scott, the 56-year-old wonder, who was the fate in Dunlap's first bid for the British title last year. Giving way more than 30 years In age, Scott cut down Dunlap In the semi-finals. Gives Scott High Rating. "I personally think Scott is very much under-rated as a golfer," Dunlap said. "He's every bit as good as his game was In the championship last year, and undoubtedly he'll provide plenty of trouble In the Walker cup matches - next month." George feels that he's better armed for his second foreign invasion, which Includes the International team competition as well as the amateur championship. His game struck a new all-time low last winter at Pinehurst, where he won the North and South title for the third time. In one of his rounds, he recorded a breath-taking 63. It might have been a stroke less had not his first putt on the last green hung tenaciously and stubbornly on the lip of the cup. Brought Up On Golf. Instead of the proverbial silver spoon, Dunlap was born 25 years ago with a golf spoon In his mouth. He has spent the winters of his life at Pinehurst and when he was a toddling youngster of two he puttered around an improvised green In the family's backyard. He had his first view of a golf course at seven, when his father allowed him to play one full round a week. By the time he reached 10, he played almost dally during the winter months with his chums, Forbes Wilson and Walter Swope, who went on to become Yale aces, while George starred on the links for Princeton, twice winning the intercollegiate championship. Taking On Needed Weight. Nine years ago, he struck out for the big time and it wasn't long before - he - found - that -his frail phySique was a handicap. Try as he might, he did not succeed In putting on weight until 16 months ago. "I weighed 115 pounds then," he said, "and now I tip the scales at 145. That extra weight has given me considerable more strength and has added to the power and distance of my shots. "My game is better now than It ever has been and only occasionally does a weakness show up. That weakness usually is a loop at the top of my swing. Every once In a while the fault appears, but It does not worry much because I know the remedy for it."

BETTER CHANCE TO REGAIN CUP U.S. Prospects Improved By Grass Courts At Wimbledon. PINEHURST, N. C, April 13 (INS) The United States has a better chance this year than last year to regain the Davis cup, Frank X. Shields of New York, the first ranking player of the country, be lieves. Shields wont say now Dig those chances look to him, but he does think a victory is more iikely than in 1933. "In the firsf place," Shields said today, "we're going to play on grass. and tnat's a big help to us over those French courts. "Then, too. we're being picked by the press to lose, which ought to mean something in our lavor. It s a big help not to be made the over whelming favorite, even before a match starts. With Vines out, we're rated as the under-dogs, and I thin it wen fight and play much harder."

MEET MAY HINGE ON CUNNINGHAM Number of Races He Runs May Decide Result of Saturday Dual. BY GREGG McBRIDE. Nebraska and Kansas, "Big Berthas" of the Big Six track front, will exchange shots Saturday afternoon in the opening event of the conference outdoor cinder campaign. The Cornhusker s and Jayhawkers will meet at Memorial stadium, the first event being scheduled lor S o'clock and the final relay being due to be finished by 4:25, thereby setting somewhat of a record for speed In conducting a dual compet. With the great Glenn Cunningham, the sensational Heye Lain-bertus and the versatile Clyde Coffman topping the team rosters, the meet Is certain to produce some brilliant performances. Cunningham and Lambertus, weather conditions being favorable, are expected to bid for records in the mile and low hurdle events, respectively, and a battery of timers will hold watches on these athletes In order that there may be no slipup in official recognition. Has Huskers Guessing. Coach Bill Harglss, Kansas men-torv has the Cornhusker followers guessing as to just what Cunningham will do during the Saturday meet. Bald Bill's dopesheet, announced Thursday, shows Cunningham winning only the mile, indicating that the Kansas flyer may confine his efforts to one race and not sap his strength prior to next week's me'etlng with Gene. Venzks during the Kansas relay carnival. The entry roster, forwarded by Harglss, however, lists Cunningham as a starter in the mile, half-mile and two-mile. Cunningham's decision may decide the meet. Coach Harglss, with Cunningham running Just one race, "dopes" Nebrajka to win, 12-59. With the Jayhawker ace performing in the three distance events, Coach Schulte "picks" Kansas to win, 70-61. Hurdles Set Around Curve. Lambertus' chance of setting a record in the 220-yard low hurdles is slltrht. The Saturdav race will be his first of the season at the fur- lnnc rllxtanre and the fact that me hurdles will be set around a full curve practically does away with any record-breaking In' the low sticks at Memorial stadium. Clyde Coffman, member of the American Olympic team. Is the third member of the stellar trio. He Is expected to carry off Individual honors, being entered In the 100-yard dash, vault, high Jump, broad jump, shot and javelin. Ineligibility bobbed up Friday morning to threaten the Cornhusker chances for victory. Everett Mead and Owen Rist, snot-putters, and Carl Nichols, vaulter, were having difficulty in clearing the scholastic parrier.

NEW YORK, April 13 (INS) Just for the novelty of the thing, not having mentioned them in any way for it least 24 hours, I'm going to write today about the New York Giants, who, according to the latest available records, are the champions of the world. I ketjp writing about this ball club, day after day and word after word, because they're the biggest story in baseball. Nobody knows that the Gianta aren't going to win again, but they're beginning to vaguely realize it themselves. Terry Alienates Frlendi. They're done. They're finished as far as this training period concerned. Only a miracle can save them the miracle of foolproof, A.-No. 1, can't-miss pitching without that, according to reports from the club, the Giants not only wont finish first. They wont even finish in the first four. That's the word today from those who have seen Bill Terry, the young manager, do a complete McQraw and not only alienate his friends on the club but leave the newspapermen without even the desire to communicate with him. This, no more than anything else I've written in recent days, is not an attack upon Terry and the Olants. but rather an attempt to keep informed as to what is happening on and with the ball club.

According to old-time ball players, no club can come off a lot of overwork unless the pitching is something that perfection doesn't quite know about. So far, it hasnt been. Forsakes Former Pals. Meantime, they tell me, Terry has somehow gotten out of touch with the gentlemen of the press and even with former associates of a rather close personal relationship, such as Hughey Crlts and Travis Jackson. This trio used to be something of dissenting minor ity that went off somewhere in a corner and politely sneered at Mc-Oraw. But nowadays it doesnt seem to have the old tlm prestige and authority. It lacks the presence of Mr. Bill Terry, who travels alone and eats alone and no longer wishess to have any part of the card games he once seemed to seek. The point Is that the whole club appears to have gone to pot, suddenly and 'completely. The news papermen understand this but, for some reason, they haven't seen fit to publish the fact. Nevertheless, the Giants, as they stand, are one of the worst ball clubs to come out of the south. They're so bad that only a miracle can save all the money that has been bet on them. The gamblers don't believe In miracles. That's one reason why they always manage to go to Newport for the season. Discouragement Grips Giants. LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 13 (INS) Here It is, Just a few days before the start of another pennant race, and the New York Olants, Instead of being pepped up and rarln' to go, are as discouraged a tesm as this city has seen in many a day. The world's champions so termed arrived here for another exhibition game with their traveling companions, the Cleveland Indians. Yesterday, the two clubs clashed at Ashevllle, N. C, and it took a snow storm in the ninth Inning to prevent the Clevelanders from winning another, the final score being 66, Carl Hubbeir ace of the Terrymen's staff, was baited from the box.
