illuminiti Tigers Fall... 3t Michigan Upset... 8C . Now Harry’s really in a jam (6) but breaks the tackles (7). He gets more help (8) and it’s smooth sailing (9 and 10) for a touchdown. Inspired Iowa Earns Draw LINCOLN, NEBR., OCTOBER 2, 1966 12 PACES SECTION State Nearly Lost Weight Signifies \ ‘No More Dog House 9 I By CURT MOSHER Ames, Iowa — Harry Wilson has been in a shedding mood lately. And the shedding he’s been doing the last couple of weeks helped him put on a terrific exhibition of tackle shedding here Saturday which preserved Nebraska’s unbeaten record at three. “I think,” said the Steubenville stomper, “that weight I’ve lost has helped me.” Wilson, in the dog house for reporting overweight, moved out of his canine quarters with a 102-yard effort, which included a bruising 36-yard touchdown blast with 3:45 left in the game. ‘‘It was a trap play,” Harry said. “We had been running it in the first quarter. The hole just opened up and there I was. Jim Osberg got a good block and so did Kelly Petersen. “I just saw the goal line and said ‘It’s time to do something’.” So impressive was the run to everyone, the team, which had given the ball to him a dozen times during the game, decided to give it to him just one more time. Only this time it was for keeps. “The linemen told ’em to give me the ball.” Harry and the Cornhus- kers had the game ball be- Dodgers Cinch At Least a Tie By Associated Press The Los Angeles Dodgers clinched a tie for the National League pennant Saturday as the San Francisco Giants s w e p t a doubleheader from the Pittsburgh Pirates, 5-4 and 2-0 on Bob Bolin’s one- hitter. The Dodgers were rained out of their single night game at Philadelphia but will play the Phillies a doubleheader Sunday, Just a split will clinch the Dodgers’ second straight league title. San Francisco still has a mathematical chance for a final tie and playoff with Los Angeles if the Dodgers lose twice Sunday and the Giants can beat both Pittsburgh Sunday and Cincinnati in a makeup game Monday that will be 1 played only if necessary. The Giants’ first-game victory gave the Dodgers the tie and the n i g h t c a p triumph eliminated the Pirates from a shot at the flag. Bolin allowed only a single to Bill Mazeroski in the second inning. Rival hurler Tommie Sisk, who walked and was erased via a double play in the sixth, was the only other Pirate baserunner. The Giants scored both runs Juan Marichal Snares 25th game triumph in which t h e Giants came back with the winning runs again in the eighth. Brown’s two-run homer gave San Francisco a 3-1 lead but the Pirates grabbed a 4-3 margin entering the fatal eighth. The Giants scored the winning runs on a single by Jim Hart, sacrifice, Brown’s run- scoring double and a clinching single by pinch-hitter Jim Davenport. Juan Marichal went all the cause Rick Coleman, the 208-pound senior linebacker, is a sneaky thief. Coleman’s theft was a cold, calculated and carefully planned affair. Coleman said that early in the week, defensive secondary coach Jim Ross had told him how to play a certain passing situation. On the play where Iowa State quarterback Tim Van Galder throws to Kppie Barney in the flat, Ross told Coleman to stay in tight until Van Galder had looked at Barney. Then, after Van Galder had looked, he was to race to Barney and help double cover him, and, if all went well, intercept it. ★ ★ ★ Who Mined The Field? Ames, Iowa — Police said after the Nebraska- lowa State football game Saturday they still were at a loss to explain who mined the field. A home-made mine exploded on the 46-yard line of Clyde Williams Field about 10:30 a.m. some three hours before the game, after a sod-rolling machine passed over it. No one was injured. The blast tore a hole in the turf about six inches across. The mine had been planted beneath the turf. Officers took possession of its remnants — two pieces of board about a foot long connected by pieces of metal and wired to a battery. Police said they had not determined what explosive was used. “I tried to do it all day,” Coleman said. “But Van Galder would always catch me.” His perseverance paid handsome dividends as he finally got his chance. It was funny later as Coleman came out of it all right, but he almost grew the goat’s horns a split second after he became a hero. “Wachholtz (Larry) came up behind me and called to me. I thought I would try to get the ball to him.” Coleman said. He failed in his attempt and the ball went squishing out to the ground. But Carel Stith was tfiere to recover (Continued on Page 5C, Col. 4) Arkansas Plasters TCP , 21-0 Statistics Arkansan TCI?

Fort Worth W—'Harry Jones shredded Tejías Christian’s defense for three touchdowns Saturday night as Arkansas opened defense of its Southwest Conference football championship by crushing the Frogs, 21-0. The seventh-ranked Razorbacks, s h o o t i n g for an unprecedented third straight exclusive crown, rolled on unbeaten with their eighth straight triumph over the bewildered Christians. Quarterback Jon Brittenum collaborated with Jones for aerial touchdowns of 48 and 72 yards and guided the Hogs into position for a five-y a r d scoring d a s h by the f 1 e e t wingback. The swift Razorbacks four times called upon their defense to stifle serious TCU scoring thrusts and, on each occasion, the Porkers responded magnificently. Twice, Arkansas repelled TCU on downs, once at the Razorback three, and used a pass interception and a fumble to silence two other Texas Christian uprisings. A near-record crowd of 44,* 415 witnessed the contest on a crisp, clear autmn night.

Five times, the 28,000 fans viewing the game here at Clyde Williams Field saw NU drives stopped inside the Cyclone 30 and the two teams appeared headed for a stalemate at 6-6 as t h e minutes ticked rapidly away on the scoreboard clock. But Wilson, who had regained his starting role only this week finally put the hay in the barn for the Cornhus- kers to salvage their third straight win of the season and the most scary one thus far. The 202 - pound Husker halfback took the handoff from Churchich on the first play after a Nebraska gamble with a fourth and two at the Iowa State 38 had produced a first down on the bulling efforts of third- stringer Paul Critchlow, Wilson hit into the line and appeared to be surrounded momentarily by red Iowa State shirts, but First downs ...........

He cut toward the husker side of the field and outran' his chasers into the end zone with only 3:45 left in t h e game. Larry Wachholtz’ extra point kick was wide to the left. Two Iowa State gifts helped lead to the winning touchdown for the Huskers, one gift from Iowa State coach Clay Stapleton and another from quarterback Tim Van Galder. Iowa State had moved to the Husker 39 with a fourth and one situation early in the fourth quarter and the Cyclones were ready to go for the first down that, if you care to speculate, could have led to a TD or at least could have put the Huskers into a deep hole. But when Stapleton tried to insert too many substitutes into the game, Iowa State drew a five-yard penalty, making it fourth and Standings National I.oa Angeles San Francisco Pittsburgh ___ Philadelphia ..

Five more yards were stepped off against the Cyclones when Stapleton then elected to send in his punter. This was one of the five times Nebraska was stopped inside the Iowa State 30 as the Huskers, after taking the punt, moved from their 34 to the Iowa State 27 with a 10-yard pass from Churchich to Tom Penney and a 12 - yarder frbrrt Chtntehich to Dennis Morrison taking up most of the yardage. But this drive was halted when Churchich was hit by ISU linebacker Dave Mayberry and fumbled. Larry CarweU fell on the ball at the Iowa State 25. Nebraska got its winning touchdown opportunity moments later when Van Galder fired a pass smoothly into the hands of NU linebacker Rick Coleman at the Iowa State 45 and after Coleman fumbled Carel Stith recovered at the Cyclone 46. Critchlow rammed for one and Churchich lost two before hitting Dennis Rich- nafsky with a nine-yard pass to set up the fourth and two situation that Critchlow responded to, setting up Wilson’s touchdown jaunt. The score will not indicate it and those fans sitting in the stands here likely weren't aware of it, but if you’re a statistics nut, Nebraska was a vastly superior team, gaining 432 yards against the Cyclones while (Continued on Page 3C, Col. 6) HOW THEY SCORED lime NU IS Left First Quarter 3-0 Wachholtz, 31 field mil'll & # iyy 6-0 Wachholtz. 38 field goal 2:30 Second Quarter 6-6 Graves, 16 pass interception 4:34 Fourth Quarter 12-6 Wilson, 36 run 3:45 Nebraska ............. 6 0 0 6—12 Iowa Slate ........... 0 6 0 0—6 Dana Falls, 16-6 in the eighth on Hal Lanier’s way despite giving up 13 hits, single, an error, Bolin’s RBI Donn Clendennon’s two-run double, a bunt single by Tito single capped a three-run fifth Fuentes and Tom Haller’s for the Pirates and gave them sacrifice fly. their 4-3 margin.

They’ve never beaten us,” Nebraska Wesleyan halfback Doug Dworak said in an attempt to explain the Plainsmen’s shoddy first half performance in a 16-6 victory over Dana. In six previous games the closest the Vikings have come to a victory was a 13-2 loss in 1962. Wesleyan didn't pose an offensive threat through the first three quarters of play and Dana held a 6-0 lead on a pair of second quarter field goals by Phil Vasby. But the Plainsmen exploded for two touchdowns and a field goal in the final period to scratch out the win. The first drive started on the Wesleyan 21 yard line after Dworak returned a Dana punt from five. On the first play from scrimmage halfback Bill Rohrig broke off tackle for 15 yards and five plays later took a screen pass down the right sideline to t h e Dana 25» Quarterback John Westland fumbled on the next play, but recovered the ball himself, setting up a 26- yard scoring pass to Dennis Quick. Quick gobbled up Westland’s toss on the 10, cut to the left and bulled through two Dana taeklers into the end zone. Roger Sand added the extra point and tne Plainsmen held the lead for the first time in the game, 7-6, with 9:48 to play. The Plainsmen scored again minutes later with Rohrig scampering 21 yards down the sideline to the Dana foui for Uut ky on a fourth and four situation from the 25. Dworak moved the ball to the one before Gary Muehlhausen carried it over. The extra point kick failed but the game was no longer nip-and-tuck. Rohrig completed the Wesleyan scoring with a minute and a half left in the game with a 34-yard field goal, set up by another Rohrig run, this one for 24 yards and a near touchdown. Rohrig slanted off left tackle, cut back to his right and appeared to have clear but he was caught from behind at the Dana 24. “We found a hole in tbeir defense that we could run through,” Wesleyan coach Ray Westover said. “So we just kept pounding it.” Rohrig slipped through the Viking defense for 147 yards on 22 carries, Dworak put the Plainsmen in good field position several times, returning three punts for 47 yards and a kickoff for 32.
