Twe strong young right, handrrs, Bob Miller of the Phillies and Erv Palica of the Dodgers were deadlocked In s hot scoreless duel when the Brooklyn Ion ball power exploded for the first time in the fifth Inning for four runs. The jittery Phillies now will have to go with the heavily worked staff ace, Robin Roberts, in Sunday's game, while the Dodgers 'can rely on their big Negro star, Don Newcombe. ELSEWHERE in the senior circuit, the New York Giants dumped the weary Boston . Braves, 5-3, and Cincinnati turned back Pittsburgh, 5-2. The St. Louis Cardinals, behind brilliant pitching, swept a twi-night doubleheader from the . Chicago Cubs, 2-0 and 4-0. Gerry Staley gave up only three hits in winning the first game. Red Hunger was the vie tor in the finale. He allowed only four hits. The World Champion New York..

EVERETT "Sonny" Crandelius, 195-pound Spartan halfback, took a pass in the first quarter for the first touchdown, and Crane scored the clincher after Jesse Thomas had carried a Michigan-punt back 23 yards to the Michigan 19. Crane went over on the third play. A huge delegation of Michigan State followers swarmed out of the stadium seats to congratulate the Spartan crew that finally made the grade. The Michigan squad, which hann't lost an opener since its 19-14 loss to State in 1937. walked dejectedly from the field. Michigan suffered the loss of its star performer, Chuck Ort-mahn, early in the game. After the Spartan touchdown, Ortmann ran back the next kickoff 35 yards to his own 36, where he was hit by Bob Carey and Thomas. On the next p(ay, when Ort Hastings Trips Kearney, 12-7 HASTINGS, Neb.

Pollock's run was just one of jv several long gallops that pro- lded the one-sided score. Fullback Gil Stephenson gal loped 55 yards to set up the opening touchduwn in the fir.-t quarter.

My kids played their hearts out." , It was Coach Bill Glassford talking after his Nebraska Cornhuskers had "field a favored Indiana team to a 20-20 tie Saturday, "Dont mention me, but say plenty about ' e blocking I bad," modestly commented Bobby Reynolds, the fuzzy-cheeked Grand Island sophomore who scored every Husker point. Oldtimers were priming their memories in effort to find a more auspicious debut that Reynolds made. The 19-year-old kid average 8.5 yards per carry in picking up 187 yards. In the doing, he performed cooly as an old pro. His punt average, despite one 17-yarder, was 33 yards. "His record today speaks for Bobby," said Glassford. "I can't add av more " He added a word of praise for Halfback Rill Mueller. Among Reynolds' rooters were his brother Tom. a photography student in California, his ' par- ents, Mr. and Mrs. Gil Reynolds of Grand Island, and his uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Carl I Olson of Lincoln. i ' ' - j THE 31-YEAR-OLD mentor 1 thought the liuiker tackling and Top Games BIG SEVEN Nebraska 20, Indiana 20.

(A California, obviously saving its punch for worthier days, brushed past Oregon Saturday, 28-7, , to set a record of 18 consecutive coast conference victories. It was the opening conference game for Coach ' Pappy Waldorf's California Bears and it definitely established them as a prime candidate to repeat for the conference crown. CALIFORNIA husbanded its strength, opening up only when Oregon presented opportunities that could not be ignored. Three of their touchdowns resulted directly from Oregon fumbles, the Bears then driving, 22, 15 and 48 yards to score. The other touchdown came after a weak Oregon punt and California took just six plays to go 54 yards to the score. Oregon's score came minutes before the half. An Oregon fum ble squirted over the Cal goal fell on it for a touchdown. Credits pass defense were the weakest points. The aerial barrier was softened with the return of George Prochaska and Nick Ad-duci who just returned to the lineup after being on the sidelines due to injuries. Ron Clark's alert defending drew plaudits from the coaching staff,. Ills two pass Interceptions and fumble recovery In Husker territory halted Indiana drives. On his punt return fumble that led to the final Hoosier touchdown, Clark said he "did not see those guys coming." The ball was, jarred loose as-Jton was hit hard by two Hoosierr the instant he fielded the punt. There were no real injuries on either side, aside from the usual bumps and bruises.

The University of Washington flicked a 200-pound rapier named Hurryin' Hugh McElhenny at the University of Minnesota Saturday and punctured "a seven-game jinx with a 28-13 football triumph. A record crowd of 49,500 was groggy with joy over a victory they had waited 14 years to witness. Washington had never won in the long series starting in 1936. M'ELIIENNY returned Minnesota's first punt 19 yards to set his-style.

Sophomore Quarterback Johnny Scarbath was the difference Saturday as Maryland dedicated its $1,000,000 football stadium with a 35-21 triumph over Navy. The 20-year-old Bultimorean put Maryland out in front, 21-0, at the half by running fur one touchdown and passing for two more. Then Maryland, rebounding in style from last. week's upset by Georgia, banged in two more speedy touchdowns early in the fourth quarter to sew things up. Navy got one in the third and . l.. .1 M .

I Reynolds scored all three Nebraska touchdowns and made good on the two conversions he attempted. ONLY a couple of unfortunate "breaks" late in the final period prevented the Scarlet from romping off with the bull game by a 20-14 margin . The first tame when Ron Clark elf ctcd to field Bob Robertson's punt with a couple of Indiana tacklera waiting to bring him down. The Ravenna ball ioter fumbled and Indiana -gained possession when Joe Kalahon pounced on the ball on the llusker 41.
