2-B ' UNCOLN SUNDAY JOURNAL AND STAR March 11, 1945 Ov nTHIS Is Lincoln'! "Responsl bility Week!" The week when the flower of Kebraska'i high school youths will congregate in the state capital city to vie' for Championship basketball , laurels at the ur Lincoln versity coliseum. Farina A "responsibility" . M iii that amounts to an A"MlU" obligation that there shall be no lagging, no shortconv lng on Lincoln's part, in making aure that the annual cage carnival achieves a financial as well as a porting success. . The state hish tournament of a year "surpassed all previous at tendance records and there are unmistakable portents that the approaching carnival, if favored by fair weather, may produce another record-smasher in the de partment of box-office receipts The box-office phase is im portant, too, inasmuch as the in come in dollars is devoted to cov. ering the traveling expenses 01 me 22 comtJetine teams. The present federal tax on admissions to sports and amused ment projects represents an In crease compared with a year ago, which accounts for the admission scale fixed by the state high schooj activities association at 60 cents on Thursday and Friday, 8a cents lor tne aaxuraay nigm finals and $2 for a season ticket good for all games, either alter, noon or night. BACT that the Washington JT Senators and the Chicago Cubs opened their spring training camps during the past week, plus the assurance that other clubs will be following the lead of the Cubs and Senators at . an early date. 1 alfr Are Doing Their Part apparently si lences the fears of the major league owners that the war ad ministration at Washington might be in the mood to order suspen iion of the diamond sport in or canized circles. The oft-heard suggestion that baseball leagues should not try to operate during war-time, has its rebuttal by spokesmen for the or ganized circuits, Who assert that baseball would be perfectly willing to say "quits" if other forms of amusement were included in a seneral ban. Meantime, Sports Editor -Bill Leiser of the San Francisco Chronicle proclaims boldly that to single out baseball as an unde. airable enterprise is discrimina tion. In which connection Editor Leiser makes public definite sta tistics in substantiation of his claim that professional baseball clayers are making their contri. bution doing their part toward winning the war. Gander the figures compiled by the far western writer: 1941 Players active in baseball leagues, 5,298; players in the serv ices. 300. 1944 Active In league, 1,753 players in the services, 4,075. . npAKING note of the explana tion emerging, from Iowa U, that the declination by the Hawk eve Dlayers to compete In the . i . ii i : 1N.V. UHSK.CIUUU iiiauiuiuu Ship finals at New York was based mm mm on their expressed Jem iinj desire to respect IfnirlcpiiPf classroom re t j m spons ibilities, saw former Iowa news Jiaper man comes in with the fol owing remarks: "Classrooms, my eye. Iowa U. Wasn't interested in the national - iinals for a practical reason the Connecticut railroaded in Last additions to NCAA card NEW YORK. (UP). A "weak ling" University, of Connecticut team which has won only five of its 10 games found itself In the fastest of company Saturday night ai the last ditch choice of the New England district tor a representative in the "blue rib bon". N.C.A.A. basketball tourna ment . The team hasn't accepted a bid as yet. and is reluctant to do so because of its mediocre record but because Brown university passed up a chance to compete there were no other eligibles in the area. Because the national collegiate meet generally ii considered the fastest of the three national elimi nation tournaments, the entry of Connecticut into the eastern playoffs might prove embarrassing, particularly if the New Engend ers knocked off one of the other highly regarded quintets in the field, Kentucky. Ohio State or New York university. If the New England district failed to qualify a team, N.C.A.A. tournament rules have to be waived to permit selection of a quintet from another area as a substitute and since most of the top squads already are thru for the season or in other tournaments, this also might be difficult. THE N.C.A.A. was assured of a fast bracket in Its western meet which begins Friday, March 23, at Kansas City, Mo. Three teams are in the field, Arkansas, Okla homa A. & M., and Utah's defend ing champions and the fourth team will be the winner of a Pa cific northwest playoff series between Washington State and Oregon next week. One team remained to be named for the National invitational meet which begins at New York next Saturday, March 17. The selection committee was awaiting the out come of the game between unde feated Rensselaer Poly and Ca nisius at Troy Saturday . night If R.P.I. wins it will get the bid, if not the committee will decide from a field including Valparaiso, Pittsburgh, Albright City College of New York and Long Island university. The teams already named for the invitational are De Paul St. John's, - the defending champion; uowung ureen of. Ohio, Muhlen berg, Tennessee, Rhode Island State, and West Virginia. The third tournament, the Na. tional intercollegiate at Kansas City, Mo., begins Monday with a iuu Bracket of 16 teams.

Luther was a great "climax" runner, pulling several games out of the fire and being responsible to a large extent for the success of his team In their bid for Rose Bowl honors at the end of his senior year. In his sophomore season Butch was relief man for Galloping Jack Dodd. As a Junior he shared the rirht halfback post with Bob De- Fruiter but In his final season tne former Cambridge ace was a finished performer. During his vanity career uapt. Luther scored nine touchdowns and was responsible for numerous other long runs from scrimmage and punt return. In 1939 he scored the touch down that tied Indiana. 7 to 7; he raced 21 yards to score against Kansas State; ran seven on a reverse to tally against Missouri and 14 to beat Iowa State. Butch marked . up two touch downs as Nebraska walloped Mis souri in 1940. 20 to 7; ran 27 and 25 yards to help beat Kansas State. 20 to 0 and his 57 yard sizzler against Iowa State put the Huskers in the Rose Bowl as tne NU squad wiped out a 12-0 half- time deficit. Nebraska football fans will long remember Butch Luther. He was great football player and a grand guy. Henry Shenk, who starts his third season as head football coach at the University of Kansas this coming fall has announced the first spring practice session of this year s Crimson and Blue football squad for Monday, March 19.

Both of these players have a 4-F classification, There Is a slim chance that Gordon Reynolds, a V-12 trainee from Washington State, will be back this year for another season. Reynolds, all Bix-Six basketball forward this past season, plays end on the gridiron. Several other possibilities depend on the V-12 program.
