Saturdoy, Oct. 8, 1966 The Lincoln Star ft Osteen , Bunker Hurl In 3rd Series Came Today Baltimore —1 he confident Baltimore Orioles will send 21-year-old Wally Bunker after their third straight World Series victory Saturday against Claude Osteen, the veteran lefty who pulled the Los Angeles Dodgers out of a similar tailspin last October. Welcomed home in the wee small hours by a wild­ eyed crowd of 4,000 fans at the airport and feted in a parade through the downtown streets, the Orioles have turned Baltimore into a baseball crazy city. By beating Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax in the first two games at Dodger Stadium, the Orioles have moved from 8-5 underdogs to 3-1 favorites to take it all. Many are talking of closing out the Dodgers in four straight. A full house of close to 55.000 is expected for Baltimore’s first World Series game. The weatherman has cooperated by predicting a clear day with pleasantly warm temperatures. Game time is 1 p.m. EDT with the same network NBC radio and television coverage as the first two games. Sunday’s game, incidentally, starts at 2 p.m. EDT. The weary ball clubs, who flew in during the night from Los Angeles after Thursday’s comedy of six Dodger errors, visited Memorial Stadium on the off day. It was the first look at the park for many of the Dodgers wrho are more comfortable in their spacious home park. It is 309 feet down the lines in this park and 410 feet in deepest center. The way the Dodgers have been playing in this series they would be more at home in a hotel room with the shades pulled down to keep out the sunshine. They have made six errors and are hitting only .115 with just seven base hits. Baltimore is hitting .246, playing errorless ball and getting strong pitching with a 1.00 earned run average- If the Dodgers can come back after losing two at home they will be the first to do it. The other teams that lost the first two and then came back to win, had dropped the pair on the road. They were the 1955 and 1965 Dodgers and the 1956 and 1958 New York Yankees. In 1921 the winning New York Giants 1 o s t the first two to the Yankees in the Polo Grounds but all of the games were played in the Polo Grounds that year. “It’s not so much where you play,” said manager Walter Alston of the Dodgers. “We’ve just got to play better baseball.” The Dodgers had a meeting before their workout Friday, reviewing the scouting report on the Orioles with special emphasis on Dave Johnson and Boog Powell. “A lot of things happened to us this year that never happened before,” said Koufax. “This isn’t over yet.” Alston admitted he never had seen his club look as bad as it did in the two losing efforts at home. The record-tying six errors and the record-breaking three misplays by center fielder Willie Davis in one inning were shockers. Alson called on Osteen, the look-alike for television’s Gomer Pyle, to turn the tide. It was Osteen, a 27-year-old lefty with a 17-14 record, who got the Dodgers back into the series last year by shutting out Minnesota in the third game, 4-0, after the Twins had whipped Drysdale and Koufax in the first two. “Osteen is a great competitor,”' said Alston. “He has great spirit and great poise. I’ve never seen him upset- Most of his games are battles but he keeps firing.” Hank Bauer, the fighting Marine whose Orioles are riding high, picked the righthanded Bunker and Dave McNally, his lefty first game starter, to work the next two games. Undoubtedly he will return to Jim Palmer, Thursday’s shutout winner, if he needs a fifth game pitcher. “It’s gotta go four games,” said Bauer. “And we play again Saturday and Sunday. I haven’t thought about any fifth game yet.” The Orioles, of course, have a golden opportunity to close it out at home by winning two of the next three or two straight at Memorial Stadium. The sixth and seventh, if necessary, will be played at Los Angeles following another off day for travel. Bunker is the third young man from Bauer’s fuzzy- cheeked pitching staff to get a start. Palmer, 20, became the youngest ever to pitch a series shutout in the second game. Bunker was on the disabled list from July 27 to Aug. 15 due to tendonitis in his right elbow. He has won only one game since July 27 and owns a 10-6 season record with a 4.29 earned run mark. He worked five shutout innings against Minnesota last Sunday but his elbow still was sore. The big hitter of the series so far is Dave Johnson, the Orioles’ second baseman, with a .500 average. Frank Robinson and Powell, two of the big power men, are both hitting .375. The only Dodger over .300 is first baseman Wes Parker at .333. Maury Wills and Jim Gilliam are the only hitless regulars. 4th Quarter Explosion Lifts NWU Nebraska Wesleyan used one of its patented fourth quarter splurges to break open a close game and ring up a 20-6 triumph over the Colorado College Tigers Friday night at Magee Stadium. The win ran the Plainsmen's season mark to 4-0. Defense was the big story again. The NWU defensive unit didn’t give up a touchdown. They’ve allowed only one TD all season. Both Tiger scores came on field goals by Jim Garcia in the second period. Leading 7-6 with the fourth quarter just beginning, the Plainsmen ran a series of downs, but missed getting a first down by inches. But when Colorado College got the ball, quarterback Warner Reeser threw a wild lat- ral and Dennis Quick fell on it for NWU at the Tigers’ 23. Senior halfback Gary Meuhlhausen, who had his best game of the campaign with 67 yards in 15 carries, bolted 16 yards to the seven. Three plays later the former Southeast back drove in from the one with 10:56 showing on the clock. That made it 13-6 as Roger Sand’s kick went wide. After an exchange of punts, Colorado College put together a 30-yard pass play and a short run for a first and ten at midfield. Quarterback Warner Reefer went wide around left end on a sweep and was hit from behind by NWU’s A1 Riley and Larry Tiedje. Reeser fumbled and the ball popped Into coruerback Terry Monk’s bands. Monk, a former Northeast player, turned on the steam and scampered 61 yards into the end zone untouched to pul Wesleyan out of reach, 20-6. with 5:07 to go The Plainsmen's first score came on a one-yard plunge by fullback Bryce Doeble, another former Northeast player, midway through the first quarter.

Colorado College quarterback Warner Reeser, 17, is dropped for a loss by Wesleyan defender Dave Grifin as Lex Towns, 22, of Colorado College, races in to help. By KENT SAVERY Star Sports Writer Fremont — Lincoln Pius X, its powerful running attack in high gear, rambled to an impressive 19-0 victory over Fremont here Friday night. Fullback Roger Jochuro was a thorn in Fremont’s side all evening. And he had plenty of help from halfbacks Bill Rierden, Rich Shibata. and Bill Hussey, a swift aggregation which Fremont’s defenses were never able to contain, either outside or inside. The Thunderbolts kicked off to open the game, then forced Fremont to' punt. A short 19-yard effort into the wind by Eric York, gave Pius the ball at its own 44. Then the state’s second- ranked team marched 56 yards to score in twelve plays, all on the ground. Shibata got the TD on a ten-yard sweep to the right after quarterback Joe Glenn had been thrown for a five- yard loss with a first-and-goal situation at the five. The kick failed, and it was 6-0 with 5:45 in the first quarter. A blocked punt by the Bolts’ Bud Darnell, recovered by Rierden at the Fremont 33, set up the second Pius tally. After eight running plays it was 12-0, as Glenn sneaked over from the one on third down. Rierden converted to make it 13-0 with 6:33 left in the half. The third quarter was a see-saw affair with neither team able to score. Pius, however, struck again the fourth period Rierden burst through the left side of the line and slanted 29 yards, entering the in Huskers Hoping Today Is The Day end zone almost untouched. Fremont made just two penetrations inside the Pius 20 and crossed mid-field only once in the first half. The hosts came up with a pair of exciting plays, however. On the first play from scrimmage in the third quarter, Tiger quarterback Steve Chandler hit end Jerry Dickmeyer on a 48-yard pass play which went to the Pius 32. In the final moments of the game, John Gumb nearly shook loose with the final Pius kickoff, but was stopped at the Thunderbolts’ 48 after a fancy 27-yard broken-field run.

The crowd, expected to he 62,000, will fall far short of the 77,248 capacity of Camp Randall Stadium. A prestige struggle between the Big 10 and the Big Eight conferences also is at stake with a streak owned by Husker coach Bob Devaney being the most important I item in the conference power struggle. Devaney has never been beaten by a Big 10 team. Wisconsin is the only Big 10 outfit owning a win over a Big Flight foe this season with its 20-10 victory over Iowa State. In other Big 10-Big Eight clashes this fall, Kansas has beaten Minnesota, and Missouri has defeated both Minnesota and Illinois. That 20-10 Badger w i n over Iowa State when stacked alongside Nebraska’s 126 victory over the Cyclones has given Wisconsin hopes for an upset. “I’m really anxious to look at those movies,” Badger coach Milt Bruhn exclaimed after hearing of the Huskers’ narrow win over Iowa State. Whether he found anything in the films will be known this afternoon. Wisconsin has changed its offense from the one which a year ago was able to gain only 54 yards rushing and 88 passing against the Huskers. The Badgers, primarily a passing team with quarterback Chuck Burt a year ago, have moved Burt to a pass receiving spot and are now working out of a ball control, unbalanced line attack. One reason for Wisconsin’s improved outlook is sophomore fullback Wayne Todd, a 6-2, 227-pound bruiser who gained 79 yards in 27 hauls against Iowa last week, a game won by the Badgers, 7-0. The Badgers also are happy with sophomore Tom Me- , slender 6-3. 185- of respect for the Huskers. passes for 119 yards against Iowa.

K-State was unable to mount any offensive threat the hard-hit- against the Golden Buffs at ting Missouri Tigers, in what should be a tight defensive battle kicking off at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Both teams have as yet to exhibit potent offenses in three starts, the Cats standing fifth in the Big Eight with 237.7 yards per game and Missouri last at 194.7. K-State is seventh with 88.3 in passing per conest and Missouri holds the same position in rushing with 98.7, although the Bengals’ rugged non-eon- ference slate of Minnesota, Illinois and UCLA makes them solid favorites. Already this season Missouri’s defensive unit has produced three touchdowns directly, with linebacker John Douglas and halfback Jim Whitaker returning intercepted passes all the way j las and John Spengeil. In order to take their initial conference outing and third victory in four games, the Tigers will have to stop K-State fullback Cornelius Davis, a 198-pounder who has blasted through Army, New Mexico and Colorado for 354 yards rushing, tops in the Big Eight and 58 yards more than the entire Missouri team for the season. Tailback Ossie Cain is another running threat and Cat quarterback Vic Castillo has kept defenses honest with 23 pass completions in 45 attempts for 220 yards. He took over the No. 1 job when Bill Nossek suffered a lung injury against New Mexico. Wingback Dave Jones completes the backfieid. Linebacker Danny Lankas was in on 25 tackles against Colorado to win the Big Eight Lineman of the Week award. A crowd of between 16 000 and 17,000 is expected in Memorial Stadium on Parents Day. K-State, which will be looking for its first victory in Boulder last week, but turned back the Herd on the three, | 12 and five to keep the outcome close. The Missouri backfieid will be switched around, with elusive Charlie Brown back at left half after recovering from a knee injury, Ray Thorp at the other half and Mike Ewing at full to team with signai-ealler Gary Kombrink. Regular right half Earl Denny suffered a back injury against UCLA, while starting fullback Barry Lisehner was lost in the Illinois game via Injury. The Tigers’ offensive line will see two new faces in left guard Bob Parker and Jim Anderson next to him at tackle.

Wachholtz 36 “Nebraska is a strong team.” coach Bruhn says. “They’re big with a lot of strength and it’s just a matter of their jelling. I’m sure that offensively they haven’t hit their stride.” Husker followers are hopeful Bruhn is correct in his last statement. The big Cornhuskers had trouble getting their offense untracked in wins over Texas Christian and Utah State. Then when the offense rolled to 432 yards in the victory over Iowa State, fumbles, interceptions and penalties stopped the Huskers. Bruhn, while pointing out that “Nebraska is tough on defense, and inside, they’re big and strong,” doesn’t plan to give up his ball control tactics. iLiiuiiiiiMi'iHHiimninmmmmnmmtiimiiiiiHr I SPORTS I | MENU I Saturday FOOTBALL — Big Eight: Nebraska at Wisconsin, Madison, Wis., 1:30 p.m.; Kansas at Iowa State; Missouri at Kansas State; Colorado at Oklahoma State; Oklahoma at Texas; State Colleges: Omaha at Bradley; Dana at Midland; Hiram Scott at Midwestern; Wayne at Kearney; Chadron at Peru: Hastings at Doane; Sioux Falls at Concordia HORSE RACING— Atokad, South Sioux City. 1:30 pm Sunday Nothing scheduled Monday FOOTBALL- Nebraska Extra Point Club Quartet back Luncheon, Lincoln Hotel, 11:45 a,m _ GOLF—Nebraska PGA Championship, Hillcrest Country (Tub.

Bellevue Rolls Over LSE, 20-0 Lincoln Southeast couldn’t find the offensive drive it needed Friday night at Seacrest Field and fell to the Bellevue Chieftains, 20-0. Southeast played the game without the services of its No. 1 signal caller, Craig Lutz, who is out with an injury. Scott Dworak did an exceptional job of filling in for the Knights but the tough defensive rush put on by the Chieftains was too much for him to overcome. Lincoln was able to compile only two yards on t h e ground and added only 39 total yards via the aerial route. Dworak was thrown for several large losses of 10 yardi or more. Bellevue pushed across a TD with 9:15 remaining in the second quarter on a drive that was given a boost by a roughing the kicker penalty. With a fourth and two situation on the Bellevue 24, Jim Patterson received the snap and booted thè punt. Southeast defenders reached him before the kick was off and it gave Bellevue a first and ten on the Chieftan 39. -From-tter* Chieftain quarterback Mike McGuire put together a touchdown drive that covered the 61 yards to the goal-line in only eight plays and put Bellevue in the lead, 7-0. The Knights were still in contention and looked as if they would go into the halftime trailing only 7-0. But the Chieftains, took over with a first and ten on tbe Southeast 16 following a bad punt by Jon Roberts. With only one second remaining in the half, McGuire hit Kirk Koehler in the end zone for the Chieftains’ second touchdown. Southeast’s only potential scoring drive was stalled on the Bellevue 45 late in t h e fourth quarter. Southeast took over on its own 40 and moved to the Bellevue 45 with a pass interference penalty. But on t h e next two plays, the Chieftains’ defense buckled down and stopped Dworak for two straight 10-yard losses Bellevue O 13 O 7~4D f« I Southeast OOO O— 0 Bellevue—McGuire 1-yard run (Koehler scoring ***<• b Bellevue McGuire tb-ywrd para to Koehler.
