Rainbow's Humiliation Of Nebraska No Fluke, 'Boys Turned Into Men' HIT 'EM HARD—Coach Rex Lulz and Barrel Genzlinger send several of their Beatrice High reserves thru some blocking drills. Coach Lutz, at left, looks on. (Sun Photo). Sad Opening For Schools Of Big Seven Conference 11s Drop Five Games, Mizzou Impressive By SKIPPER -PATRICK KANSAS CITY Iff)—Off to a sad start in their first set of openers, Big Seven Conference football teams this week face the unpleasant task of an all-major league slate headed by games with three Big Ten powers. The -Big Seven lost, all five of its games last Saturday. The shutout could be partly explained, however, by the fact Oklahoma and Colorado did not play. Missouri, still smarting from a 74-13 lashing handed them by Maryland last Thanksgiving Day, scared Jim Tatum's Terps before losing 13-12 at Columbia, Kansas was beaten 47-14 by TCU at Fort Worth, Iowa State lost 19-7 to Denver at. Ames, Kansas State was shorted 38-20 by Wyoming, at Manhattan, and Nebraska embarrassed 6-0 by Hawaii at Lincoln. Except for the prospects of Oklahoma beating North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Colorado trimming Arixona at Boulder, it looks like another unhappy weekend for die Big Seven. Missouri goes against Michigan, a Big Ten championship favorite, at Ann Arbor; Nebraska meets Ohio State, the defending cham- "pion and Rose Bowl titlist, at Columbus, and Kansas State has an engagement with rugged Iowa at Iowa City. Iowa Slate has an open date. Nebraska's collapse before Hawaii, a team it: had beaten 50-0 in the islands last year, and Missouri's strong showing against Maryland were the most surprising development of the opening games. Apparently it was a well earned victory for the TTawaiians who had been expected to provide little more than a good workout for tlie Cornhuskers. After spotting Maryland a 13- point halftime lead, Missouri got exceptional performances from its young brickfield and its tackles and guards. .31.

By ODELL HANSON LINCOLN I.7v-Woll, it's Ohio State (shudder) next for Nebraska's Cornhuskers. And there's this to be said for that one: Whatever happens at Columbus, O., next Saturday can't humble the Huskers any more than what happened to them in the season's football opener on the green sod of Memorial Stadium here Sa tin-day. Hawaii's Rainbows, who'd been tabbed to give Nebraska little more than a warmup. humiliated Coach Bill Glassford and the Huskers with a solid 6-0 win. This was no fluke. Maskers Outplayed The Rainbows, who must have come to town on that Streetcar Named Desire after the 50-0 whipping they took from Nebraska on Oahu Island last year, simply outplayed and outhustled the foe. For three quarters there was no scoring. But oven had the game stopped here, it; would have been a 'moral Hawaii. Statistically Nebraska was trailing in just about every department. The Husker offensive was smothered at almost every turn and the defense had its hands full with Hawaii's sparkling halfback, Skippy Dyer, and his equally dangerous back- ficld mates. About mid-way in the fourth quarter, Reserve Halfback Bill Taylor broke loose on a 37 yard sprint to Nebraska's 7. Halfback Ed Kawawaki fumbled momentarily on the next play but recovered and advances to within inches of a touchdown. Senior Fullback Hartwell Fi'eitas threw his 200 pounds into the center of the line and that was the clincher. Don Botelho's attempted conversion kick was wide but it Didn't matter. Uso' "Sheer Guts" Coach Homy Vasconcellos had only 27 men in uniform - a lot less depth than a coach likes to have on a day that see's the mercury climb to 96. But Nebraska's superior depth didn't mean a thing, September heat wave or not. "They were boys turning 'into men," Coach Henry Vasconcellos said after it was over, "they used sheer guts." Said Coach Bill Glassford of Nebraska: "We didn't do anything. They outplayed us in every way." Statistically, Hawaii edged Nebraska 12 to 10 in first downs, and accumulated a net of 300 yards gained, to 210 for the Huskers. In rushing plays, Hawaii covered 264 yards, while Nebraska could make only 157. Three Carry riuil Rex .Fischer, Willie Greenlaw and Don Erway shouldered most of Nebraska ball carrying chores. Fischer averaged 4.8 yards in 11 carries. Greenlaw 69 yards in 8 tries, while Erway wound up with a net loss of one yard in 8 rushing attempts . ; The Nebraska passing attack showed, occasional signs of getting off the ground but a series of desperation passes in the waning moments, which got nowhere, cut Nebraska's completion average to 6 out of 15 for 62 yards, while Hawaii connected on 3 of 6 for 54 yards. Erway tried six passes and completed three for 28 yards, while Sophomore George Harshman managed one completion in five tries. Husker pass receivers included Fischer, who snagged three for 31 yards, and End Jon McWilliams who netted 24 yards in two catches. Dyer Standout It didn't take the 23,000 well warmed fans long to spot Dyer, State Prep Grid Roundup Associated I'rc'hs Kinda looks like that man Jerry Lee and his crew of Grand Island gridiron gallopers have set their sights skyward. The Islanders roared around Lincoln Northeast's Rockets in a 33-0 romp in the state's most brow- lifting high school football game last week. Struck twice from a long way out for touchdowns. And they threw up a defense that had the Rockets fizzling. Meanwhile, Crcighlon Prep of Omaha nailed down victory No. 22 in a row by trimming Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson, 28-18. The Prep victory streak extends over a two year period. Later on, the Islanders and Prep will tangle. Gangway! Lincoln Wins Other top games saw Lincoln, last year's state champion, slap down North Platte, 19-7, on two last quarter scores, after having been trimmed at home in the season's opener; and Fremont nipped improved Norfolk, 14-7. The Fremont-Norfolk game was the Big Ten feature of the day and went to the Tigers on two scoring passes off the arm of Bill Luding- lon. Norfolk made it's big bid in the third periotl when, two touchdowns behind, the Panthers scored once and then made another march that carried to the one before the ball was surrendered. Speaking of throwing the ball take the case of Larry Woods of Wymore. He threw four touchdown It Happened In NEBRASKA T> early Nebraska pioneers, bridges would have .appeared as much a limir) as today's modern, paved highways.

Fumbles Costly And of almost throwing it away Fairbury picked up a pair of touchdowns by scooping up York fumbles for runs of eight and 80 yards. But York marched 64 and 72 yards to gain a 11-14 tie. And of running - every touchdown came from at least 21 yards out as Nebraska City nipped Auburn, 19-12. John Christiansen had the longest run - a 08 yarder for Nebraska City. Then there was Ron McClat/- key who scored from 50, 45, 40 and ,30 yards as Meadow Grove trimmed Brunswick, 32-0. And Terry Carlson who went 'JO as his Wakefield team lost to Lyons, M-fj.

Scott.sblulf collared a 20-0 victory over Rapid City, S. D., but Alliance ran into a rugged Torrington team and was trimmed, 3-1-7, being saved from a shutout by Wade Kernper's G8 yard scamper in the last 22 seconds.

Y. \m — The Rochester Red Wings, having blasted Toronto out of the Governor's Cup four games to none, will meet the Minneapolis Millers in the Little World Series. The first game will be at Rochester Wednesday night. Rocky Eager For 'Cocky' Arch Moore Both Fighters Watch Chances Of Postponement By MURRAY ROSE NEW YORK l/D-Ione, a gal with a real big punch, had heavyweight; champion Rocky Marciano and Archie Moore more worried about her than each other as they idled away the hours. Trained to a razor-sharp edge, the fighters' long preparations for Tuesday's title bout in Yankee Stadium ended Sunday with short boxing sessions. Now they had nothing to do but peer at the skies and wonder if lone was going to throw a wet blanket over their plans, Tf it should force a postponement, the fight will be held Wednesday. Thursday is the next postponement date. The 38-year-old light heavyweight champion considers himself a cinch to become the oldest heavyweight king in history and doesn't want to wait an hour more than necessary for the crowning. Marciano is just as anxious to get at his cocky challenger. Rocky admits that Archie's taunts have sunk deep and while he won't make any prediction his followers say that he is burning to destroy Moore in the early rounds. Judging by his last three workouts, the 31-year-old heavyweight ruler may do just that. Never a "gym fighter," Rocky has been spectacular with bolt) the power, speed and precision of his punching. While training drills seldom are a reliable criterion, this observer, after watching them practice over the past week, picks Marciano to win on a knockout within five rounds. Rocky's body punching has been devastating and he has been unloading his blows in combinations of three and more within split seconds. Moore, asserting that he only svants to keep his "edge honed," went through easy-paced two-round drills in the past week. Rocky boxed four rounds in each session until the final two days. "I've been fighting too long to waste any of my strength in training," said Archie. "I know what I can do and it's just a matter of keeping my sharpness." The odds still favor Marciano by 3-1 to stretch his all-winning streak to 49. Moore has won his last 21 over the past three years and nine months.

St. Louis, 7 p. m. 1 By OR1X) ROBERTSON Assiiclntcd Press The New York Yankees have the Cleveland Indians on the floor and like the Bronx Bombers of old they are moving In for the kill. For years the Yankees have had a reputation for taking a mile once they were given an inch. And that's the way Casey Stengel's 1955 edition has been performing the past week. A week ago the Yanks trailed the Indians by IVa games and apparently had all the worst of the schedule. Today they arc roaring along two games in front. The Schedule favors them with the Tribe in the most, disastrous tallspin of the year. They have seven to play to only five for Cleveland. Both teams are on the road until the campaign ends Sunday. Yiutks Nip Sox Sunday the Yankees thumped the Red Sox 3-2 for their fifth straight victory. The Indians bowed to the Detroit Tigers 10-3, their fourth straight loss. The Chicago White Sox all but slid out of the picture, losing 8-1 to sixth-place Kansas City. The Sox need four victories In their remaining five games to tie for the flag even if the Yanks win only one. Bob Grim was Hie big man in the Yanks' triumph. He replaced fireballer Bob Turley in the third with the score tied 2-2, two runners on base and nobody out. He promptly shut the door in the faces of the Red sox and pitched hitless ball the remainder - of the way<. Only two got on base, Billy Klaus via Billy Martin's error and Ted Williams, who walked. The Yanks gave Turley a twor-run lead off Willard Nixon in the first but Jackie Jensen tied it up with a two-run homer in the ttiird before Grim came in from the bull pen. The winning run, scored off Nixon, came hi the fifth. Two singles and a walk loaded the bases. As Ted Lepcio tossed out Gil McDougald, Gerry Coleman raced lome. Miller Starts The defeat of the Indiana was ironic in that it came at the hands of 20-year-old Bob Miller, beaten by the Yanks last week. At that time there was considerable comment because Detroit Manager Bucky Harris used an untested youngster in a game involving the pennant. Bob Miller hurled six-hit ball for the Indians before he tired after seven innings and was relieved by Dick Marlowe. Pinch hitter Hank Foiles' two-rim homer was the only damaging blow off Miller. By that time the Tigers were out in front, chiefly because of a six-run sixth inning at the expense of Mike Garcia and Ray Narleski. Gus Zernial's bases-loaded homer off Chicago's Dick Donovan spiked the White Sox early in the game and they never were able to do anything with the offerings of Art Ditmar. The Baltimore Orioles pulled but of the cellar into a seventh-place tie with the Senators as they beat Washington 9-0 behind Jim Wilson. Braves Bag Second JThe Milwaukee Braves clinched second place in the National" League with an 11-inning 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. But the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Phillies remained in a battle for third place. The Giants dropped a 7-5 decision to the Dodgers while the Phillies split with the Pittsburgh Pirates losing the first 5-2 and winning the night game In front of the Phils. The Cincinnati Redlegs downed the Chicago Cubs 12-5. . YANKS SERIES TICKETS NEW YORK «»-The New York Yankees announced today they will begin accepting World Series applications immediately.
