Green, 230-poiind bulldozing fullback, pounded for 102 yards, mostly up the middle, just as he did a year ago in a 19-13 loss to the Plainsmen. Friday, as in 1964, Wesleyan yielded all the way down the field but gave up touchdowns grudgingly. The Plainsmen also had an antidote in the running of Gary Muehlhausen and Bill Rohrig, the passing of Dave Lebsack CAMPBELL SCORES TWICE- Rockets Romp To Easy 26-0 Win Over Knights Senior Doug Campbell, the ond shutout of the young 1965 19-yard scoring strike only returning backfield regular in the Northeast lineup from a year ago. scored two touchdowns and helped set up a third Friday night as the Rockets rolled over cross-town rival Southeast.

Ketterer added the PAT with one of his two good kicks.

Southeast then put up its longest drive of the evening after taking the kickoff at its own 12-yard line. The Knights drove 84 yards only to be stopped on the NE four as time ran out in the first half. Big play in the drive was a 40-yard pass from Tom Kos to Dave McEwen. Ketterer and Campbell then combined for the big bomb in the third period. Four plays after taking the second half kickoff, Ketterer dropped back in the pocket and arched a to Campbell.

Southeast put up its second big march in the early fourth period going, but once again bogged down at the Northeast four. In this series Leinberger exploded with a 44-yard run and Kos passed to Bill Jennings for another 25 for a first and goal situation on the eight. But four plays netted only four yards and the Knights were forced to give up the ball, Northeast was unable to move and punted out of danged. Then Campbell intercepted an errant Kos aerial and ran to the 46. Tom Purbaugh, a promising junior, took one pass for 13 yards and ran twice for six and 22 yards to spark this final drive.

Then Ketterer plunged over on a keeper from two yards for the final tally with 3:36 to play. The Rockets hit the road Friday as they travel to North Platte seeking win No. 3 while Southeast will try to get rolling at the expense of invading Hastings on the same night.
