Lococo didn't even hit the head pin in getting his pileup to defeat Dee Eiches. It was a crossover that hit the 2 pin, and the timber rolled in reverse, finally bowling over the No. 1 stick.

Island, 25-0 Fourth win for Creighton Prep OMAHA. UP). Grand Island held a weight advantage but Creighton Prep won its fourth football game of the year, 25-0, here Saturday. Only Gordon Lucht, the state's shot put champion, offered much defensive help. He held Prep's Jim Eastman, the city's scoring leader, at bay until the last period when Eastman crossed from two yards out for the final Creighton touch down. Frank Mancuso carried the opening kickoff 41 yards to Grand Island's 28 to set up the opening scoring play. Three plays later Mancuso snared Eastman's pass and stepped over. Dick Dineen scampered 10 yards for the second score early in the second period and a mixture of first, second and third stringers provided another counter In the same period with Jack Haegan in the hero role. Prep gained 282 yards to Grand Island's 12. It was Grand Island's sixth straight defeat. Vanderbilt wins with three scores in first quarter NASHVIILE, Tenn. UP). Three flrst-q u a r 1 e r touchdowns gave Vanderbilt all its points In a 20-0 victory over Sewanee Saturday. Some 4,000 chilled fans saW the ouin renewal of the schools' half century-long rivalry. The Commodore took th vnrda In 15 plays and seven minutes for Its first score. An intercpeted jmna wnitn juiian uisen returned 57 yards to the 8ewanee 17 set up the second touchdown. Re covery of the succeeding kickoff FfanL Walker on the Tiger 21, paved the way ivr uie uiiro. Mountaiiieers whip hapless Jays, 21 to 0 Kansas makes single threat MORGANTOWN, W. Va. UP). The West Virginia university Mountaineers, starting slowly with a 15 yard field goal In the lint period, banged for three touchdowns In succeeding quarters Saturday to haul down the Kansas university Jayhawkera, 21-0. Playing in the mud before a homecoming crowd of fhore than 9,000, they retained control at all stages except late in the fourth quarter, when the Jayhawkers' Ray-Evans connected on successive passes to Dines Gibbens and Martin Vandaveer. The threat carried to the West Virginia 1-foot line, but Tackle Hank Goodman wrecked the only serious thrust the visitors made all day. The Mountaineers scored two of their three touchdowns thru the air. Start Rolling. First West Virginia points came on a field goal by Charley Schra-der after an exchange of fumbles ended with Spelock recovering for West Virginia on the Kansas 13. On the fourth play of the second period, Martin dropped back and put the clincher on a 75 yard rush by dropping a pass into McElwee's arms over the goal line. Immediately following the second half kickoff, McElwee, Schroder and Martin advanced to the ansas 22. The drive appeared stopped momentarily when Denzil Gibbens Intercepted Martin's pass on the 5, but the officials ruled there was unnecessary roughness on the play and Schrader drove for a touchdown from the 5. The final West Virginia touchdown, almost an anti-climax, came on a pass from Bell to Leone from the 24. POS. KAN8AS . W. VIRGINIA L.E. Bchrake Klmbell L.T. Meade Harris LG. Flutter Peellsh C.

(Continued from Page 3-B.) jor Jones this as the pair met on the field after the game: "I don't know how we won this one." Dallas Ward, who scouted the Nebraska team down at Kansas State last Saturday, was a picture of amazement. He wondered, after he saw the Huskers play the Gopb ers, if he hadn't gone to the wrong game last week. "This certainly wasn't the team I saw against Kansas State," Ward commented. The consensus on the Gopher side was that the Huskers were very much tougher than they had been expected to be. Dick Wild-ung, bulwark- in the Gopher line, praised the play on the Nebraska line. "It was an unusually clean game," Wildung said. "Of course, we always have a fine game with the Cornhuskers." Like Pitt Score. When the Huskers learned that Pittsburgh, their opponent next week, had upset Fordham, a battle cry was sounded. They liked that score. Dr. Earl N. Deppen, who checked over the players and found only a few minor bruises, perhaps signalled the Idea that was sweeping thru every mind. "Boy, what a ball game that will be next week:" Cuff notes: The crowd that saw this game numbered 42,893. . .This was one of the largest crowds ever to see Nebraska play in Minneapolis... In the past five years the margin of victory between the two clubs has never been more than nine points... The score In the 1938 game was 16 to 7 In Minnesota's favor... An impressive ceremony took place just before the kickoff when some 400 to 500 men in the army and navy service formed "IT. S. A." and "U. S. N." as the coated Gopher band played the national anthem. The Nebraska party left Min neapolis over the Rock Island road at 11 o'clock Saturday night. The return trip to Lincoln is scheduled to be made by noon Sunday. Individual averages . . ' MWRANKA.

The Boilermakers of old Purdue came close to the promised land Saturday, but couldn't quite make the grade, and had to settle for a scoreless tie with Michigan State on a snow-sogged gridiron before 17,000 shivering spectators. Purdue had two grand scoring chances; Michigan State none The first Boilermaker threat came in the second quarter after Bob Chester, Tony Berto and Jphn Andretich had driven to the Michi gan State 12. There, an end- around play'' on fourth down with a yard to go misfired. - . v That was the only serious scor ing threat until the filial quarter when Bob Johnson, Purdue center, who has played every minute of the Boilermakers' six games, intercepted a pass thrown by Richard Kieppe on the Spartan 27. Purdue's Chance. It' looked like Purdue's chance. Johnson, however, made a bad pass from center, Walter Cook fumbled -it and Robert Friedlund of Michigan State recovered at his own 33. The game ended seconds later. Both teams were shooting for a .500 percentage in Saturday's game. Each has won two games and lost three. The Spartans made seven first downs to three for Purdue and gained 78 yards by rushing to 76 for the Boilermakers. On forward passes the Spartans picked up 60 yards to 26 for Purdue. POS.

Two quick scoring thrusts in the second period and a pair of clinchers in the third gave Omaha s Knights a 4-1 vie tory over the Kansas City Amer leans in an American Hockey asso ciation battle before 5,500 fans Saturday night. Kansas City's Stewart scored first in a close first period but the Knights retaliated in the second. Taking advantage of the absence of Mitchell, Omaha scored on a power play, Thompson taking a pass from Conacher. Before the Americans could re-set a defense, Omaha counted again, Conacher getting credit. The Americans gambled desperately lrfthe rmal period but Omaha's rookie Johnny Holota made a clean break, moved In close and eluded a lone defense man. Sodaks crush Omaha, 28 to 7 . VERMILLION, S. D. UP). The University of South Dakota Coyotes climbed into a second place tie with North Dakota university by building up a first half margin and then coasting to a 28-7 victory over Omaha university in a North Central conference game Saturday.

Durdan sparks Oregon Stale to win over UCLA CORVALLIS, Ore. (UP). Don Durdan, Oregon State college back, scored two touchdowns and passed for a third Saturday as he sparked his team to an easy 19 to 0 victory over the University of California at Los Angeles. A homecoming day crowd of 12,000 saw the game. UCLA got into Oregon State territory only three times and each time the sturdy State line turned back the challenge. Duke romps on v Davidson, 56-0 DAVIDSON, N. C. UP). Duke's big Blue Devils, defending a perfect record for the 1941 football season, overpowered Davidson, 56 to 0, Saturday in a Southern conference football game before 10,-000 spectators. Wallace Wade's team, said by many Duke followers to be his best in years, displayed not only crushing power, but the supply of reserves also had been tutored in deceptive, hipper-dipper style of play that kept fans oft-times guessing where the ball was amtil some scat back or another would break into Davidson's secondary. Huskers . . . (Continued from Page 1-B.) y in;. Thompson,.. : : . " Pass on Fourth. Toward the end of the first half. the Huskers started an offensive of their own, which picked up three first downs and moved the ball from their own 20 to the Minnesota 40, but a passing attack failed. The plucky Huskers were playing out the string and on fourth down elected to pass rather than kick. Bradley cut off one of Higgins' passes on the Husker 43 and on fourth down Bradley pitched a strike to Bob Ludwick who had relieved Thompson on the final play of the quarter. - Boa went skittering down the sidelines, keeping his feet and keeping in bounds by some elegant footwork but he was finally bumped out of bounds by the last Minnesotan on the 22-yard line. He kept moving forward on this play when it appeared no less than twice that he was either hemmed in or would be forced out of the playing field. A fumble gave the Huskers a chance in the second half when the ball got away from Higgins and Vic Schleich curled around it. Blue and Metheny, the latter using a sneak play thru center that brought yards every time he tried it, worked the ball to the Gopher 32 where a Husker fumble gave it back to the Gophers on their own 28. Punts Hurt N. U. A short Husker punt, followed by Higgins' out of bounds kick which rolled out on the Husker 3. kept Nebraska in hot water but they managed to stop a Gopher challenge on the 22-yard line so Bill Daley tried a field goal from the 30 but It was wide of the mark. The bouncing Higgins came back with Bradley's punt frbm Minnesota's 32 to the 46 and Bill Daley, showing more power than at any time during the afternoon, began roaring thru the middle until they had the Huskers pushed back to their own 13 with first down at that spot. Gamaas could get only a yard and Daley couldn't move farther than the 7 on two bucks so uar-naas fell back to the 13 and kicked a field goal so squarely thru the uprights that Referee Frank Lane signalled It good almost before the ball had reached the uprights " Minnesota had another chance when the Huskers suffered a lapse on the next kickoff. Athey, evi dently figuring the ball was going out of bounds, made little effort to field it and Herb Hein, Gopher end, grabbed it on the Husker 23 Wayne Blue snuffed this almost immediately by cutting off Gene Bierhaus pass on the Husker 17 The Huskers worked the ball out to their own 39. Final Pass Fill. Then the Gophers began swarm ing Bradley in his attempts to pass and a fourth down flip was in complete. There was time for but one play, Daley hitting center. It was a sight to warm the hearts of Nebraskans to watch the Hunkers immediately after that gun popped. Wayne Blue was so weary he could hardly get to his feet and no wonder from the num ber of plays in which the big fel low figured, both offenivly and defensively. However, Game Cap- . . . While the wolves Coach's wife , Says NEW ORLEANS. (SNS). Prob lem in football etiquet: What does the coach s wife do when her husband's team is out there getting its bumps and a loud gentlepian in the stands nearby keeps yelling, "The team's all right. They oughta fire the coach!" Mrs. Lowell Dawson, whose hus band, "Reticent Red," pilots Tu-lane's gridiron squad, says, "Well, the wives of the coaching staff usually sit together, and we just turn around and glare if the heckling gets too bad." Mrs. Dawson, young and pretty, also has found sensible solutions to most of the- other problems which beset that coast-to-coast sorority whose husbands are always on the spot. Wolves Howled. Last year Tulane had a mediocre season after the mighty 1939 team went undefeated to the Sugar Bowl and then lost a bitterly contested game to the Texas Aggies. "People would call me at all hours of the day and night," said Mrs. Dawson, "telling me or Red what a terrible job he was doing. They might say, 'There's a meet ing going on now to decide whether he keeps his Job. We'll let you know in the morning.' " This can be rather hard sometimes on the 25 year old mother of two children. But Mrs. Dawson still takes most of the calls from the wolves who love to howl after football coaches. "Coach Is pretty hard-boiled about that sort of thing now, and I'm getting that way too," she says. She really looks anything but mat. Adrienne Gottschalk Dawson, member of -an old New -Orleans family, is blonde, slim and blue-eyed. She talks pleasantly and laughs easily. No Grid Expert. She met Dawson, a native of Wisconsin, after his football play ing days. Red quarterbacked the Tulane team that went to the Rose tain Herndon and the others were shaking hands and exchanging congratulations with the Gopher players. It was an unusually clean game, there being but one 15 yard penalty all afternoon. Pitt Brings Roar. Word of Pitt's victory over Ford-ham bsought a roar from the crowd when it was announced, and probably added another furrow in Major Biff Jones' brow as the Panthers will be at Lincoln Saturday. Fortunately the Huskers came thru without serious hurts of any kind but whether the "iron men" who carried the load Saturday can rest up sufficiently between now and Saturday to meet an . eleven that has been getting steadily better, remains to be seen. It was said that a New York betting commissioner had sent $1,000 here to be placed on Nebraska and 26 points but there were no Minnesota takes.
