Tho Mnroln Star 31 Thursday, Nov. 5, 1970 Mad sen Gets Hair Cut For Meet TO CONFORM WITH PBA'S GROOMING RULES UMBER LINES iV 1 By Randy Eickhoff Star Sports Writer Top Season November is the month eager hunters have long waited for with the two top hunting seasons slated to begin the first two weeks. The tournament's Pro-Am event starts Friday with five amateurs rolling one game with each of three pro-fessionals from the PBA tour. Squads will bowl at 3, 5, 7, 9 and II p.m. The pro portion of the some of the $1,000 prize money he earned in the Pro-Am.

But Madsen prefers his hair long and curly. So why the haircut? It's Lincoln Open time again and Madsen must conform to the Professional Bowlers Association's grooming rules if he wants to bowl. By TOM HENDERSON Star Sports Writer John Madsen, wfnncr of last year's Lincoln Open Pro-Am, got another haircut r. couple of weeks ago, only his second this year. It's not that Madsen.

14 for fircarms-and the woods will be filled with bright splashes of red from eager hunters out to fill their licenses. Sometimes eagerness can be carried loo far, however, as a recent example in Maine proves. Lot Of Hunters Maine, being further north than most states, has its deer season well in advance of any other and, consequently, the woods are well trampled by eager, well-meaning hunters. Hut accidents will happen and one hunter was accidently shot in the leg by a hunter who is probably blameless as high-powered bullets tend to carry a long way. Hut reports from the nortnern-mosl state indicate that about 250 hunters converged on one wooded area during the season with each hunter after the same deer.

A Fish and Game Department warden said about 30 were fired at the deer and one of accidentally hit one of the 250 hunters, Daniel K. Wood. The deer was killed and Wood was reported in satisfactory londition at a Portland, Maine hospital. Fortunately, Nebraska's deer situation is such that 250 hunters will probably not end up stalking the same deer, but it is highly possible that five could. With this in mind, it might be a good idea if a little hunting safety is practiced by hunters in some of the more densely hunted areas.

Remember Bunker Hill One of the better rules for hunters to observe would be the old saying that originated at Bunker Hill during the Revolutionary War: "Don't shoot until you see the white of their eyes." Of course, it's a little ridiculous to wait for an eycball-to-eyeball confrontation with some deer before you open fire, but it would at least be a good idea to wait until you can fully identify the target before blasting away. day. Last year Madsen was to howl in both the Pro-Am and the pro tournament, as one of five local bowlers included with 91 professionals. But the PBA Image Committee told him he couldn't bowl in the pro event unless he cut hfs hair. He got it cut just before the tourney, but this year he didn't wait until the last minute.

"I didn't want it to look too short." Madsen explains. "And I had to get it cut a little early because of that show on TV the Chamber of Commerce had a little show." Although Madsen prefers to let his locks grow between tournaments, he doesn't argue with the PBA rules. "I think it's for the betterment of the PBA," he says. ''The public sees them a lot and I think 90 per cent of the bowlers in the PBA are very well groomed. It's a very good rule.

Bowling comes first no maiter what." Madsen feels he is ready for this year's tournament. "I feel real good right now," he says. "My game's real sharp. I've been working out and I've been bowling a lot the last few weeks. I think I've got a good shot." The 22-year-old accounting major at the Lincoln School of Commerce says "The alleys have changed this year from extremely inside to extremely outside.

That gave me a little trouble for awhile, but I've been working on it and I'm really confident right now. "I think the alleys are in great shape and I look for some outstanding scores from the pros." Madsen, despite winning the Pro-Am last year, missed the first cut in the prop portion of the tournament by about 30 pins. "That gives me something to strive for this year," he says. "Now I know that I've got a chance." He sat out the 1970 season while a federal court in New- WASHINGTON (AP) Outfielder Curt Flood, bound to the Washington Senators by the reserve clause he despises, says he looks forward to his return to baseball and thinks his one-year layoff might have done him some good. "I'll return fresh and ready for action," the 32-year-old Flood in a statement made with Wednesday's announcement of his contract signing.

"Half of my hang-up could be contributed to the fact I was mentally fatigued. "Ballplayers lay off a few months between the end of the season and the start of spring training," he said. "I've been out longer, of course, but I don't believe it's going to be any problem getting in stride again." The Senators said Flood signed the standard contract containing the reserve clause that binds a player to a single club for life unless the team trades him. The team said the new contract, approved by Commissioner Bowie Kuhn, contains an York ruled against him. His appeal is pending.

Flood signed the contract in. New York Tuesday night after Robert Short, Washington Senators owner, cleared the last technical obstacle by getting Kuhn to approve a trade with Philadelphia that sent Greg Goosen, a first baseman, and two minor leaguers, Gene Martin Jeff Terpko, to the Phillies. In the nation's capital, Flood will join the second controversial player signed by Short in the last month pitcher Denny McLain, the former Detroit 31-game winner who was suspended twice last season for gambling and other offenses.

SE Champions Stage Top Smoker Attraction Madsen Enters Lincoln Open Pro-Am Tourney John Madsen of Lincoln, who picked up the $1,000 first prize agreement that the pad would not affect the outcome of Flood's against baseball. Flood, a 12-year veteran, was traded to Philadelphia last year in a seven-player deal that sent another stormy player, Richie Allen, to St. Louis. But Flood refused to play with the Phillies and filed his suit challenging the reserve clause. But the sliotgunncrs should remember that at close quarters, the shotgun is twice as effective as a rifle and a hundred times as murderous.

Most of the hunting accidents reported during a year are the result of shotgun injuries. So, naturally, more hunting safety is needed in those ranks. Whatever your sport is or what you favor during the various hunting seasons be safety conscious the life you save may be mine.

By RANDY EICKHOFF Star Sports Writer Two Southeast District Golden Glove representatives met in the seventh bout of the first Lincoln Boxing Smoker of the season to provide the roaring crowd with the fight of the night.

Wilson, weighing in at 135 for the Roberts club, opened the first round with a quick flurry of left jabs that scored on Kreifels and forced the heavier fighter to move back throughout the round.

A hard right hand by Kreifels spun Wilson around and raised a welt on the 21-year-olds face, but Wilson shrugged it off and countered with a quick bomb that caught Kreifels on the jaw and dazed the stocky counter-puncher. In the second round, Wilson slipped a right counter and bombastcd Kreifels with a hard right cross that wheeled the slugger into the ropes. Another quick right caught Kreifels on more' experience and it Wilson, fighting for over two years, said his right hook helped him the most in the bout. "I think the two right hooks I threw in the second round really set up the win. Both of them caught him and hurt hi.m.

I knew I had him then. There wasn't any doubt in my mind at all about the outcome then. Not that there was at the first," he laughed. All totaled, six of the sixteen bouts ended in either TKO or KO with Rick Olsen, 155, Aamco, bringing down Karl Cox, 164. Stromsberg, in 1:30 of the first round for the fastest KO.

Olsen connected with a hard right cross after hooking off a left jab to take out the Stromsberg fighter. Randy Nelsen, coaching and fighting for Lincoln Saylor, met Leader for individual honors in the race has to be Kansas State's Jerome Howe, the defending champion who is making a comeback this fall after missing all the indoor and most of the outdoor season last year because of a broken leg. However, very much in contention have to be Iowa State's Dennis McGuire, who. won the Big Eight's three-mile title last spring, Oklahoma State's Peter Kaal and George Stewart, Kansas' Jay Mason, and Nebraska's Greg Carlberg. Kansas' package, built around the seemingly tireless Mason, includes Dave Anderson and Jon Callen, who finished back of McGuire and Mason in the three on the kickoff unit," Devaney said.

"If it's not, we'll have to come up with somebody else." The NU kickoff unit has been the subject of more juggling of personnel than any other Husker unit this season. "The thing you've got to do with a kickoff team is get people on it, who are anxious to play and who want to go down and hit people," Devaney pointed out. NU 8th In Scoring Nebraska with its 34.5 points per game, ranks eighth nationally in scoring, according to NCAA statistics released Wednesday. The nation's scoring leader is Arkansas with a 42.4 per game output. In total offense, the Huskers rank 13th with a per game average of 410.4 yards with Notre Dame the leader, averaging 544.5 yards per contest.

AP Tabs Huskers Both football forecasters for The Associated Press, Herschell Nissenson and Will Grimsley, are predicting a Nebraska victory over Iowa State Saturday, Grimsley calling the score 36-7 and Nissenson simply forecasting an NU win. Orduna Needs Nine Nebraska I-back Joe Orduna needs only nine rushing yards in Saturday's game at Iowa State to become the top rusher in the Bob Devaney era at Nebraska. Orduna has rushed for 1,728 yards going into the Saturday contest, only e'ght back of Harry Wilson's yardage gained in the 1964-66 campaigns. By HAL BROWN Star Sports Editor Nebraska football coach Bob Dcvaney was happy with the weatherman, who gave his Huskers dry, sunshiny conditions Wednesday permitting them to work on their natural grass practice fields and the Husker coach was hoping for a similar break today. "We noticed some difference in going from our artificial turf to the grass at Colorado last week," Devaney said.

"There was some slipping that wouldn't have happened on our field. "I think one of the problems was that the players get accustomed to making sharper cuts on the AslroTurf that you can't make on natural grass." The Huskers also will work out on Iowa State's practice fields Friday afternoon after a bus ride to Ames, Iowa. "We're not going by bus because of any economy move," Devaney explained, "But it's just tough to get a charter since the airlines don't like to charter those short trips." Husker quarterback Van Brownson, who came up with a sore elbow earlier in the week, was throwing the ball Wednesday and Devaney said he was not concerned with Brownson's ailment as far as it being' a handicap to the signal caller. The Husker coach was contemplating some changes again in his kickoff unit today and part of the changes revolve around the condition of Woody Cox' sore shoulder.

Crosby stunned the Southeast District champion in the third round with a right bomb that started in left field, but the more experienced Nelson fought back to almost KO Crosby before the final bell rang.

Both fighters have fought their way to the state golden glove tourney with Wilson advancing to the semi-finals prior to Marine Corps service. Nebraska, the surprise second-place team last season, has unquestioned quality in veterans Carlberg, running better now than ever before, and Jim Lang, who was eighth last meet. Jim Hawkins and newcomers Bob Unger, Mike Fertig, Dan Speck; and Lynn Lincoln PBA Open Format Explained When the Lincoln Open gets under way Friday at Hollywood Bowl, many first-time fans who have never watched the pros bowl may be wondering what sessions are the best to attend. Tournament activities will actually get under way at 11 a.m. Friday with a practice and autograph session.

But that afternoon at 3 p.m. the pro-am portion of the tournament starts with squads running until 11 p.m. that evening. In the pro-am, viewers will have a chance to watch some of the finest bowlers in the Lincoln area bowling with the stars of the Professional Bowlers Association. On Saturday, the tournament proper starts with the entire field rolling 12 qualifying games the first day.

The action is divided into two six-game segments with one five-hour session getting under way at 10 a.m. and a second five-hour session starting at 4:30 p.m. The entire field returns for six more qualifying games on Sunday starting at 10 a.m. at the end of which the field is cut in half. The remaining bowlers return to the lanes at 7 p.m.

for still another six qualifying games at the end of which the field is cut to the high 16 scorers. On Monday, the finals begin with each man bowling each other once. The Monday sessions begin at noon and 7 p.m. with the action divided into blocks of nine and then seven games. All play is conducted on a match-game basis, with the winner of each game earning, in addition to his actual pinfall, 50 pins for victory, 25 for a tie.

After the 15th game, there will be a 10-minute break while all scores are tabulated. Then, there will be one final game a position round where the man in the first position rolls against the man in the second position. No. 3 faces No. 4 and so on down the line.

This gives each bowler in the field one last chance to improve his position. At the conclusion of this 16th and last match-game, final placings are determined.
