SPORTING SECTION THE LINCOLN SUNDAY STAR FOURTEENTH i'EAR N E B R A S K A ' S B E S T N E W S P A P E R LINCOLN. NEB,, SUNDAY, Al T UL r ST (i, J91U. SUNDAY EDITION FOUR PAGES S ATHLETES 11 Two-Baggers By Latty Lattimore and Irl Chester Morse Turn the Trick. Error Enables Drummers to Tie Score, But Lincoln Grabs Game, 5 to 4. St. Joseph, Mo.. Aug. 5.--The Ducklings outlasted the Drummers in the heat today and bagged a 5 to 4 victory after a torrid contest of eleven innings. Jack Halla started the pitching for the visitors and lasted ten innings, when he wilted from the hejt and gave way to Carl East. Roy Patterson, veteran pus- timer, hurled eight innings for the Drummers and then was superseded by Borer, one of Jack Holland's newest pitchers. The Holmes clan had compiled a comfortable lead of 4 to 2 when the n i n t h Inning rolled around and all Hulla and his pals needed was to blank the Drummers in one more round and the aigu- ment would be over But that was -nhcie the Ducklings failed to perform ui to the requirements of the situation. Honolulu Williams, a pitcher, was substituted to pinch-hit for Patterson and poled a single to right. Wright grounded to Tony Smith nt short and Williams -RJS forced at second. Keating popped to Lattimore for the second out, but Jourdan thumped a triple to the right field fence, scoring Wright. Klrkham hit to short and Jourdan scored the tieing run when Ton.\ Smith hea\ed high to first. Sullhan filed to Lober for the third out. The Drummers looked more dangerous in the tenth, when McClelland led off with a three-base hit. Otto Williams fanned and Fusner, the Joetown catcher, then tried the squeeze b-nt. Jack Halla smelled what was coming and fielded the bunt so s-n Iftly to Hick Johnson that McClelland was nailed at the plate. The eleventh saw the Ducklings ramble away with the victory. Latty Lattimore and Irl Morse were the most potent factors In the Lincoln triumph. Latty landed on the leather for a two-base blow and Morse came through with another two-sacker, sending Latty over the plate The Drummers worked East for two passes to first in their slice of the eleventh, but the Lincoln hurler steadied and kept the Drummers away from the platter.

This light heavyweight received a more decided decision over Moron than did Jess Willard, who is tho;nt ^r^. | heavyweight champion. / Gus Christie, the other man of Murbargcr's duet, is a promising middleweight of irS pounds and yet managed to hold Ins own in a five-round bout with Dillon.

Daily recently bumped I n t o a stroke of misfortune by losing 40 acres of fine wheat on his Kearney county faun near Mindon. The wheat lacked only a few days of being ready for the harvest. Then onmo a hail utorm and every straw was driven into the earth. The. wrestling ('·hampion carried no hail insurance ana he estimates his loss at Jl.OOO. A jolt of that sort has made the lightweight premier anxious to get back into the game to defend his laurels as champion and to bid for a fat stake on the side. The agreement for the Dally- Maurell match will specify winner- take-all, which means that the loser, in addition to his stake money, will draw riot one cent from the gate. These Caddock-Hussane ;oiA Daily- Maurell bouts will be finish contests in the full sense or no money for the Srapplers. The articles of agreement in both instances will call for a decision on points, and any stalling, such as was done by Strangler Lewis in the Fourth of July match with Stecker, will mean a referee's decision of defeat for the "staller" and a verdict ot victory for t h e aggressive grappler. This plan is u n i q u e in wrestling circles, but the policy of evasion adopted by Ixswis wns a reflection on the game and calls for something stringent in the way of rules in order to prevent grapplers of the Lewis type from gettins: by with draw decisions Legg Wins Fifth Trans-Mississippi Golf Championship PLHIER5 TUMBLE Cornhusker Authorities Are Now Making Ready For the Gridiron Season.

Fquteen "N" men will be back to aid Dr. Stewart, Assistant Coach Dick Rutherford and Captain Tim. Corey , towards another all victorious season. Although graduation and the three- I year rule cost the Huskers the ser- vices of some of Its greatest players, no coach ever had a better assortment of material at his disposal than Dr. j Stewart will find waiting him at Ne- j braska. ' Captain Tim Corey has spent th« I summer In Lincoln and is In the pink of condition. The big tackle tips th» scales at 215 pounds and it Is all brawn. Corey confidently expects to have the greatest year he ever had the gridiron. Tim and his assistant* have been busy during the summer la putting Nebraska field in shape. Much new sod has been secured and th« gridiron Is In superb shape for the opening: of tho season. Prospects of a 4,000 mile Jaunt to the Pacific coast, where tho' strong Oregon Aggies eleven is played, shall serve to enliven · competition for the places on the team. The coming of new ooach which means that ev«rjr man will again have to prove his t\£- noBs for the place -will also act as a stimulant for the new men. ' No Lack of Material. Dr. Stewart will have a. -world of material to plug- the holes in the line caused by the loss of "N" men. Captain Corey and the veteran Ed Shaw, who played a smashing: game on the opposite side of the line, are expected to solve the tackle problem. Both are heavy and fast and shine equally ot defense or offense. Allan Moser, last year's center, will aga'ln bo bback but may have strong competition In Roy Cameron, rated as one of the best centers who ever has Played on a Nebraska team. Cameron was placed at tackle his first year on the tcum and at center the second. I l o did not play last season. He Is heavier than he ever was before and puts a lot of scrap in his 180 pounds. Should Cameron try for a tackle position, he will give Shaw a stiff run. It IB possible that Stewart will ug« him for ono of the guard positions, where his experience would make him an Invaluable man. Maloney, a recruit from "the fresh- majti squad of last year, is expected to try for the other position of snard. Maloney IB touted as a cornrner--a big- man who knows how to us a every ounce of his strength. Haberslaben and Ed Kosltsky, two second-string- men last season, are back in school and will both be eligible. The loss of the mighty Chamberlain leaves one of the end positions open. Ted Riddell. who played hla first uea- son last year, will again b« on hand. Enfrstrom, an Omaha man, Is fast and mlKht work into an end -with proper coaching-. At quarterback Loren Caley and Johnny Cook will both be available, griving- the Huskera two first class men The same is true of fullback as both Doyle and Otoupalik will be on the squad.
