Hopp's kick from placement gave the Blue shirts a 7-0 lead that they held thruout the remainder of the period. . Harvard, battling desperately to tie the count failed on a field goal attempt early in the third period when Francis' kick was wide from the 33 yard line. Later on with the Crimson seconds in the lineup, George Porter spotted Willard Bunker, former Lincoln high wingman, in the end lone and flipped him a 22 yard pass for the touchdown. - Harm Rohrig, who was in sweat clothes on the sidelines, was rushed In to try the extra point and his kick was good. With the count deadlocked at 7-all both teams waged a merry battle the rest of the route. Har vard got a break when Warren Alfson, running interference for Walt Luther, scooped up the Cambridge boy's fumble behind the line and ran 23 yards to the Yale 25. . .Boots From 16 Yards; Francis and Luther lugged the mail to the 15 but here the Blues held and Francis was forced to try a kick from placement , on the fourth down.

Scoring in every event, taking first place medals in nine of them and tying for the top In another, Coach "Cy" Yor-dy s Lincoln high school track squad romped away from all foes in the - York - college invitational meet here Saturday afternoon. Genoa captured class B. The point total of 80 V4 amassed by Yordy's ambitious cinder clan was the highest score ever compiled in the York affair. 'Big boy Howard Debus won the pole vault, javelin and discus, and placed second in the shot to grab individual honors. Neligh Second. Neligh, in second place, ended just 50 points behind the winners. A stiff gale out of the south whipped by a dense dust storm toward the end of the meet and marks generally were slow. Only two meet records were broken. ' , Leonard Bornschlegl of Ohiowa set a new mark In the high jump when he cleared six feet five-eighths of an inch.? The other new standard was set in the 4,40 yard dash when Laveme Clabaugh of .Nelson pedalled around the oval in 53.1 seconds, three-tenths of a second faster than the mark by Btuhr of McCool last spring. Genoa Wins Class B. While Lincoln was galloping away with the class A title, retaining the crown won last year, Genoa moved to the top in class B by taking second place in the 880 yard relay. Ohiowa paced the field until the final event, when Genoa's sprint quartet finished second to Ohiowa to pick up three points and gain a one and one-half point margin over Coach Jenkins' one man Ohiowa team Bornschlegl.

IVARNEKE- HANDS F UNO Lon Slams Double With Bags Loaded to Drive Home Three of Runs. ST. LOUIS. (JP). Pitching a brilliant four hit shutout against the Chicago Cubs wasn't enough for Lon Warneke. The lean son of Arkansas made himself practically the whole show by smashing out two bits,. oneof them a double with the bases loaded, as the St. Louts Cardinals downed the Cubs, 9. to 0. Plainly disgusted after two of his teammates had failed in the pinch, Warneke strode to the plate in tbe second inning and slammed the ball up against the fence in left center field to drive In three runs, more than he really needed to win. Except for that one slip against Warneke, Southpaw Larry French checked the Cardinals during his seven innings on the mound. He was removed for a pinchhitter in the eighth. Cards Pound Root. The Cardinals went on a bat ting spree against the veteran Charlie Root, who . replaced him. Mickey Owen led off with the Redbirds' first homer of the year and, before the inning was over, six runs had crossed the plate. Terry Moore hit a double with the basea loaded. Warneke also figured in the rally, getting a single and scoring a run. Long Lon meanwhile went thru most of the game without any trouble. Dick Bartell doubled and French walked to third, but Stan Hack filed out and Billy Herman hit into a double play. , Another double play checked the Cubs in the ninth, Hank Lieber ending the game after Herman and Jim Gleeson had singled in succession with one man out. The other hit off Warneke was Hack's harmless single to start the first inning. .

Two veterans, I.

N Leonard kept half a dozen hits scattered no more than one to an inning to richly deserve his triumph. He had trouble, however, with Tommy Henrich who tripled in the third to score Red Rolfe. The latter reached first by forcing Frank Crosetti, who had walked. Henrich also had a double and a base on balls in his first start of the year, for the Yankees. Triple Follows Double.

PERU, Neb.: Superior man power enabled Omaha Tech to take the 1939 M-I-N-K track and field meet here Saturday afternoon, but It was the pluckiness of a pair of Humboldt youngsters, Bill Arnot and Orville Yocum, that .captured the fancy of the fans. ': Arnot, all around athlete, accounted for a -new record in. the broad jump, and came back to tie the 23.2 furlong record established by Dick Beal of Omaha Tech. Hi jump was 21 feet 10 inches, considerably surpassing the 21 feet 3 mark of Hickey of Abraham Lincoln. Yocum shattered the discus mark of 124 feet held by Bill Pfeiff of Lincoln with a heave of 130 feet 5. The two gave Humboldt 23 points, but it wasn't enough to beat Omaha Tech, which finished with 44 4, Waterloo, third with 13, produced another record breaker in Ralph King, state class D champ, who was clocked in 16.2 for the high sticks.

Then he heaved the pellet 52 feet Hi inches for one of the three new marks established at the windswept 17th annual University of Kansas relays. Beefus Bryan, the Texas skylark, cleared the pole vault bar at 14 feet 2 inches on his first trial for a new record in that event. He and Don Bird, of the host Kansas team, battled all the way up the ladder and Bird scraped off the bar with hia chest on his third trial.

The Kansan, .whose record of 4:12.7 was set in 1934, led by a yard. Michigan State's star sprinter, Wilbur Greer, pulled a leg muscle in his "rubber" encounter with Mozel Ellerbee, national collegiate champion from Tuskegee institute, in the 100 yard dash, and the dusky speedster sneaked just inches ahead of the limping Greer in the final strides.
