illy Terms Should m m Chicago Daily News Special . Sun Valley, Idaho Jean-Claude Killy, the handsome French "Broadway Joe" Namath of skiing, tells you he's now doing the most exciting racing he has ever done and back of his judgment is trophies, including three Olympic gold medals. "Zizz. I know nothing like it," Killy says, grinning boyishly. "This shoulder-to-shoulder racing is unbelievable." ; Killy, now an ancient 26, retired from official competition last year, but he signed up with United Air Lines and Chevrolet in a three-year contract that should bring him a million bucks, to do almost what he was doing before for free. ' ; The difference, as will be shown in "The Killy Challenge," a CBS series that premieres , Sunday afternoon, is that the racing is done in pairs, not one at a time against a clock. ' "Nobody does this in official competition, but I predict, I think, this will change after people see how great it is,"r Killy puffed, seconds after he won a race against Austrian Christian Pravda on a steep slope at Sun Valley. Killy said that what made the new double competition possible was a new electronic clock that times both skiers down to. the split second. ; "Any other way, it's too easy to cheaf ," ' Killy winked. Now, he says, when he' crosses that starting line and zooms down the slopes, it isn't just against the slalom flags or a timer clock somewhere he can't see, but it is against another visible skiier. ' "I keep my mind on just one thing. To ! get space between me and the other skier and to keep it," he says. Each weekly episode features Killy and four challengers. The challengers come down to one and that one faces Killy, and if he wins he pockets $10,000. The courses are a slalom and a giant slalom and they are at such great snowspots as Aspen, Park City, Solitude, Jackson Hole, Squaw Valley, Heavenly Valley, Breckenridge and Son Valley. ' , In Heavenly Valley, Killy's competitiors are girls. At the other spots, they are men. The sponsors won't say whether Killy is or is not beaten by any of his challengers. But the king of every ski slope in the world admits that he was bested in at least one race. Where? , "Heavenly Valley. A charming, charming girl," says Jean-Claude, the mischievous grin returning. , . . . " , . .

Demons lltli Foe Of NU The bonus sixth home football game for - University of Nebraska football fans in 1970 will match the Cornhuskers against Wake Forest. . . Verbal agreement has been reached between Nebraska and the Atlantic Coast Conference contender and University of Nebraska president Dr. Joseph , Soshnik indicates that the Sept. 12 game will be recommended to the Nebraska Board ' of ' Regents at its next meeting. ' The university faculty com-m i 1 1 e e on intercollegiate . athletics discussed the proposed 11th game permitted by re- , cent action of the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. and gave approval to the contest Friday. . THE NCAA gave the green light for college teams to play 11 games, primarily as a means of meeting the spiralling costs .of intercollegiate sports competition. In ne a r 1 y all cases, football revenues support the " entire athletic program. Nebraska football coach and athletic director Bob Devaney sought a home game for the obvious , reasons: to give Nebraska fans another op- portunity to see ; the , Cornhuskers and to get the financial benefit from playing in one of the country's largest stadiums. Wake Forest and Nebraska have not met previously in football. V The Demon Deacons, in a rebuilding program under ex- - Michigan State assistant Cal Stoll, finished 3-7 in 1969. The previously announced home schedule includes Army " (Sept. 26), Missouri (Oct. 10), Oklahoma State (Oct. 24), Kansas State (Nov. 14) and Oklahoma (Nov. 21). The Cornhuskers will be on the road against Southern Cal (Sept. 19), Minnesota (Oct. 3), Kansas (Oct. 17), Colorado (Oct. 31) and Iowa State (Nov. 7).

Adams : Brothers Pace SE Upset Win By DON FORSYTHE Southeast's whole basketball team was standing 10-foot tall-Friday night, but even the big kids were looking up to 5-11 Randy Adams and his 5-7 ' brother, Roger. It's not that they had any more to do with the 46-39 upset of top-ranked Northeast than any of the other Knights, but they did supply the backcourt leadership so vital to any club hoping to crack Northeast's sound defense.

' In an upset match : earlier, fourth-seeded . American .Bob Lutz of Los Angeles was surprised by Jim Osborne of Honolulu, who took a 6-1, 6-2 win. In the Richey-Nastase match, a controversial line call upset Nastase in the eighth game, second set, and the Rumanian lost his serve as Richey took a 5-3 advantage. '. ' Osborne, a graduate of the University of Utah, used a big serve and fine slicing cross court returns to overturn Lutz. Thomas Kich of Brazil sidelined New York's Clark Graebner 9-7, 6-1. Graebner, who wore his contact lenses for the first time in an indoor meet, said, fourth-seeded : foreigner Koch played . an outstanding ground game.

With three wins in a row the Knights have won four of six games in January. 'The last time we played Northeast we had 11 inexperienced kids. The Christmas break really helped us. We did a lot of scrimmaging and saw what we could do if we played together," he related. i "Things went so bad for us the first game that it's hard to imagine.-We shot 19 per cent the first half and were behind . 22-5 after the first quarter.

The Knights HHn't . shoot much better (25 per cent) the first half Friday night, but they were doing exceptional work on defense and in the rebounding department. ' "Each one of the kids made some kind of contribution for us. When we needed bench help they did the job," said McNaught, singling out reserves Ron . Anderson and Harold Wegner for top efforts. With Joe . Harvey getting 20 rebounds, Anderson 10 and Kerry Erington seven the Knights had a 42-32 advantage over the Rockets. Links Continue On Omaha Metro Clubs By VIRGIL PARKER Prep Sports Writer The next time the Metro League standings are published in Omaha, they ought to include Lincoln High. .. Coach Aldy Johnson's Links took on their fourth Metro opponent at Johnson Gym Friday night, surviving a furious fourth-quarter comeback attempt to edge Boys Town, 62-60. 1 "We must play the toughest -schedule in the state," Johnson said after .. the hair-raising finish against the Cowboys. "Not only do we tangle with each of the Lincoln teams twice, but we still have Omaha South to meet this season after having already played Westside, Creighton Prep, Central and now Boys Town from Omaha." . ' The . Links evened their record at 2-2 against the Metro foes with the squeaker over Boys Town. By an eyelash the final buzzer kept the battle from going into overtime. Towering Tyrone Pryor, the Cowboys' 6-7 sharpshooter who dumped in 29 points for the night, almost had 31. But as he leaped up to send his last attempt on its way, the buzzer beat the release of the ball and nullified another swisher. " "He's some shot," Johnson said in amazement of Pryor, who tallied 13 of Boys Town's 17 fourth-quarter points. "Our Indoor Track Records Oklahoma City UP) Earl Harris, Oklahoma State speedster broke the listed American indoor record for the-300-yard dash with a 30.4 seconds clocking Friday night at the Oklahoma City Jaycee indoor track meet.

Forty of his pupils were scouts in the stands Friday night as Nebraska Wesley an shocked Wayne State, 57-55. . All the students kept shot charts and they'll compare their work against the game film next week. But they won't learn as much from - those figures as they did watching the strategy of their teacher. Peterson, in his 20th year as low key lead man of the PlElinsmen, has out-coached a lot of folks in his day. He did it again against Wayne's Dave Gunther. , ; Rick Boals jump shot from the key with three seconds left won the game, but you could just feel that Irv was calling the shots that counted from the bench. Wesleyan, which had. lost six straight to the Wildcats since a 93-76 victory in the -1963-64 season, won its fifth in a row at home and handed Wayne its fourth defeat (third in the last four games) in 19 games. The Plainsmen got a bad start en route to the victory, throwing the ball on bad "We just didn't do what we planned to do," said a disappointed Ed Johnson. The ' Northeast coach said "Southeast played well and we didn't. That's the story." , ;. Johnson noted that it was possible that the Rockets might have been : looking ahead to ; Saturday . night's game with East (6-2), but that the only game which matters is the one you're playing at the moment. "It's always possible that you might be looking ahead, but all that could be is an excuse," he said. "We just didn't have anybody . Aldy Johnson Wins Another Game defense was designed to crowd him away from the basket, but he can make them from anywhere." Most of Pryor's 12 field goals were jump shots ; from outside the perimeter of the key. . .- . .. "Our problem is a lack of depth," Boys Town coach George Pfeifer 1 said. "We've got a couple of kids who can play with anyone, but you don't win enough games with just two players.'' , The Links zoomed to a com manding 17-6 lead at the end of the first quarter. Though the gap was cut to six at 31-25 at halftime, Ron Peery and Sam Sharpe combined for eight , straight Lincoln High points early in the third stanza for a Harris and Everett Marshall of Oklahoma paced . 60-yard dash qualifiers, each being timed in six seconds flat.

Suddenly the margin melted to just six points and Pryor led the comeback which produced the game's first deadlock at 58-all with 2:48 left to play. "We didn't play as well as we have in many other games," Johnson admitted. "Because of the foul trouble we had to juggle our lineup too much."

Playing the waiting game, NWU edged out to a 41-37 margin, but trailed, 4744 with 9:33 left. Bob Beecham, Wesleyan's 6-10 sophomore center, who earlier had tied the score at 47-47 on a three-point play, then cashed in on two free throws for a 52-49 lead. A shot by Goodwin tied things, 53-53 with three minutes left, but a pair of free throws by Ernie Strasil at 1:53 gave NWU a two-point advantage. Wayne's 6-9 Dave Schneider canned a bucket at 1:10 to tie it. Wesleyan then had the ball with 58 seconds remaining and Peterson set up the winning play for his forces during a time out at the 41-second mark. Gunther, according to Wayne athletic director' Leroy Simpson, was too upset over the loss for comment after the game. The Wildcats have lost to Doane, - Hastings and Wesleyan on the road as well as Southwest, Mo. Baptist early in the year. "Not many clubs would have beaten either one of those two teams out there tonight," smiled Peterson as he celebrated his 310th victory as a college coach. NWU committed only six personal fouls. 1 "You like to win those kind of games, but even if we had lost, it wouldn't make me feel bad because the kids did everything I wanted them to do," added Peterson, whose squad meets Concordia at home Tuesday.
