A versatile Indiana pridiron machine that Btruck with brutal fury Saturday roared past the Nebraska Cornhuskers, 17-0, in the Beason's baptism for both teams before 32,000 spectators. Stunned by a high-octane running attack and riddled by a sudden burst of aerial fire, the Scarlet grid craft finally went aground after riding into Indiana waters in a series of first-half touchdown threats.

Indiana clung to a narrow 7-0 margin at halftime, added a field goal in the third quarter and cinched the game with a long touchdown pass with four minutes remaining in the game. For eighteen minutes, the partisan crowd was disc-eyed as the spirited Huskers CHICAGO. (AP). Ken Johnson, 24-year-old Cardinal southpaw, brilliantly made his debut as a major leapue starter here Saturday by stopping the Cubs, on one hit, 3 to 1, before 10,469 applauding spectators.

Ji -Tr i i i I ACKERMAN TICKS IP SIX Bob Ackerman picks up six yards around left end in the second quarter, advancing the leather to the Hoosier 17, before being smeared by Indiana's Mel Groomes. (Staff Photo.) Huskcr-Hoosicr Statistics INDIANA NKnRAHHA gave iuu to me nope ana neiu the vaunted invaders scoreless.

Then with lightning swiftness, the Hoosiers struck with a ferocious dcadllness that took its toll. In less than three minutes, the powerful invaders had marched 48 yards to the first touchdown of the game. Nebraska had courage to spare, but lacked the line speed and barkficld savvy that was Indiana's. After paralyzing the Husker line with a heavy ground attack, the Hoosiers caught the Scarlet reeling with an aerial carnage that brought the final and decisive touchdown. The panoply of Nebraska offensive success seemed concentrated in the second quarter which ended with the ball on the Indiana 2-yard line the result of a 33 yard pass from Jim Myers to Ralph Damkrotfcr.

Myers' pass capped a quarter that was filled with "might have been plays by the Huskers. One near-touchdown occurred when swift Dick Hutton intercepted George Taliaferro's pass and danced 15 yards down the" east sidelines to the Indiana 23. From there, Ackerman moved to the Hoosier 17-yard line before the drive ended with Raven-burg's interception of Wiegand'i aerial. ANOTHER heart-breaking march was launched when Cletus Fischer caught a 37-yard pass from Wiegand. Only the momentum caused by his stretch for the pass kept Fischer from losing his footing on the Indiana 15-yard line.

Ackerman pierced to the Hoosier 13 and Fischer was spilled back on the 33. It was from the 33-yard stripe that the last Husker play of the first half, the Myers-Damkroger pass, was unveiled. Myers, a right halfback, received the ball on a pitch-out from Quarterback Wiegand. A vigorous Nebraska protest was registered when the clock ran out before the Huskers could launch a touchdown attempt. Officials ruled that, since Nebraska had used up its quota of time-outs, another respite would constitute a delay of the game.

rischcr figured largely In a first-period Scarlet drive that nearly ende.d in touchdown territory. FLEET CLETUS wing-footed 33-yards thru the Indiana line to the Nebraska 48-yard line where the last two Hoosier de fenders nabbed him. With the ball on the 48, Wiegand tossed a perfect pass to Bill Moomey, who had eluded the last Hoosier secondary defender. As the crowd loosened a collective groan, Moomey dropped the ball. A second Wiegand pass, at this point, was Intercepted by the Hoosiers' alert Taliaferro on the Indiana 48-yard line.

From here, the Hoosiers drove to their first touchdown. DICK DERANEK pun for 10, 9 and 7 yard' gains en route. Taliaferro carried to the 13-yard line with a four-yard advance. A five-yard pass from Frossman to Deranek brought the ball to the five. Dusky "Knocky" powered to the one-yard line.

After Nebraska was offside on the next play, Jagade blasted over center for the touchdown. Grossman kicked the extra point and the Hoosiers led, 7-0. That margin was to stand until late in the third quarter when a fierce Husker goal line stand forced Grossman to boot a fourth-down field goal from the four-yard line. Grossman's field goal ended a 75-yard drive that was started See HUSKERS, Page 2-P, Col. S.

A crowd of 59,444 watched the Bucks stage touchdown marches of 75 and 84 yards, with Fullback Joe Whlsler, 220-pound Junior from Willard, going over for the two markers. IN BETWEEN those Ohio on slaughts the Tigers paraded 78 yards to send Sub Fullback Ed Quirk of St. Louis over from the five for the score giving Missouri a 7-8 lead which it retained until two minutes and 40 seconds before the finish. Altho Wblslfr scored the touchdowns, It was Alex Ver-dova, substitute right halfback from Lakewood, whe carried the Bucks practically single-handed to the winning score. The 186-pounder, who has been on the sidelines during much of the training with an Injury, wheeled Into the game In the final minutes when the Bucks had the ball In mid-field.

His first run, a stuttering, whirling trip around end, was good for 27 yards. Whlsler went for five, and then Verdova drove over tackle for another 14 yards. That put the ball on the seven, and the Bucks made it in three more plays.

Purdue 11 Surprised By Badgers MADISON, Wis.

(UP). A surprising University of Wisconsin football team, scoring In every quarter, Inaugurated the Big Nine season here Saturday by blasting out a 32 to 14 victory over Purdue before a crowd of 41,000 fans. THE GAME had been heralded as a battle for last place between the two supposedly weakest clubs In the Western conference with Purdue rated as a slight favorite. Wisconsin however scored In the first four minutes and then went on to pile up an impressive margin. Wisconsin had no trouble In stopping the passing of Purdue's star aeriallst, Bob De-Moss, the conference's leading passer last year and held him to only one touchdown pass.

For Wisconsin two veterans from last year, rfalfbacks Wally Dreyer and Clarence Self, carried the brunt of the attack. Dreyer scored twice and threw a scoring pass to Tom Bennett. Self and Lisle Blackbourne scored the other touchdowns. Dreyer opened the scoring after Wisconsin had intercepted a pass by DeMoss oft the Purdue 22. Wisconsin piled up 17 first downs, 15 by rushing, to only seven for Purdue and gained a net total of 418 yards to 193 for the Lincoln high and Scottsbluff, both undefeated in three starts.

A second quar ter 48-yard pass play gave the highly favored Colorado Buf faloes a 7-0 victory over the Iowa State Cyclones Saturday, and the Buffs were happy to get by with that slim margin.

For a lighter, but gritty Cy clone eleven, starting on their own 20 in the closing minutes of the garrfe, moved to the visitors' one-foot line before they were stopped on downs with about 15 second of playing time remaining. THE CYCLONES piled up 13 first downs to their heavier rivals' eight and outgained them by rushing, 133 to yards to 72. The lone score came about midway of th second period with the ball an Iowa State 48 yard stripe. Quarterback Dick Schrepferman tossed to Ed Pudlik, who took it on the 10 after it had bounced off the fingers of the Cyclones' Don Ferguson. Pridlik went over standing up.

John Zlsch converted. IN ADDITION to their final drive, the Cyclones made only one serious threat, piling up most of their yardage and first downs in midfield. Near the end of the second quarter Iowa State moved 25 yards Irom the mid-stripe, but the attack was bogged down. The Buffaloes weren't even in the ballvfame the first quarter, never getting to midfield, but after their touchdown they threatened again twice in the third period. It was the pltchlne arm of Ron Norman, Cyclone halfback, who Drougnt tne estimated 8,500 rooters to their feet in the thrilling finish to the game played under dark skies and with a chilling south wind blowing.

From the Cyclones' 23-yard line Norman heaved a pass to End Dean Laun who was hauled down on the Iowa State 48. Norman again threw an aerial which six-foot-three Bob Jensen took on the Buffalo 15. After two running plays lost three yards Norman flipped another to Laun good to the seven, and Norman pusnea to the five to. make It iirst ana goaL Colorado ia. gi.i.
