Thumbing the pages almo.st to the very beginning of the Corn­ husker history book, came a flood of pleasing memories of my first inspection of a Nebraska eleven in action on a chalk-lined field. The year 1893; the scene, a North Omaha gridiron; the date. Thanksgiving day; the game. Nebraska vs. Iowa—the classic of that cradle period in the annals of football at the two state universities. • * * * I N the lineup w'ere such Corn­ husker notables as Johnston and Wiggins at ends; Oury and Whipple at tackles; Wilson and Dern at guards; Hopewell at cen- 4er, and Flippin, Frank and the two Yonts—one “Big” and the other “Little”—in the backfield.

The mercury was hovering near the zero point and the final reckoning stood 20 to 18 in Nebraska’s favor when the 70 minutes of playing time had run their course. Flippin’s line-ripping plunges and spectacular touchdown runs by “Little” Yont and Oury, with goal kicks by Frank, accounted for Nebraska's scoring performances.

Uncle Sammy needs to sell war bonds. I could buy a lot of ’em if they’d let me fight. And the fans want it.” Uncle Sam Says No The war department has other ideas, how'cver, and Louis admitted that there is no present prospect of his being granted permission to fight. He said he doesn’t want to fight anybody out Conn, and thinks that Conn’s hand, tnjurcd in a kitchen brawl with his father-in-law, is now completely healed.” “That boy Conn deserves a fight and I’d like to give it to him,” Louis said. “However, Uncle Sammy is the boss man, I feel fine—never felt better in my life and never was in better shape. I’m going in for cavalry replacament in the army because I like horses.” The champ was in an exceptionally talkative mood, for him as he visited with reporters and Julian Black, his manager. He told how he had scored 134 out of a possible 150 hits with an army rifle, and said he is v€vy well satisfied with army life.

NEW YORK, June 25—(AP) — Those two hardy perennials, Ciaude Passeau and William (Lucky Bucky) Walters, are bidding strongly for the pitching leadership of the National league again. This year, most of the attention in the senior circuit has beeo given to Mort Cooper of the St. Louis Cardinals, with his five shutouts, and Lefty Larry French of the Brooklyn Dodgers, with his unmarred record of six victories and an earned run average of less than one per nine innings. But Passeau and Walters made their claims heard anew last night with standout performances. Passeau Bags No. 11. Passeau pitched a four-hitter for the Chicago Cubs to beat the Philadelphia Phils, 3-1, and attain his eleventh victory, the most games any pitcher in the major leagues has won. Walters, like Passeau, hasn't had much help from his teammates, with Cincinnati ranking last in the league in both batting and fielding, yet last night he scored his eighth success against five setbacks by holding the New York Giants to six hits over 10 innings to lead the Reds to a 4-3 decision in a twilight tussle.

Another brother, Jesse G., the “Big” Yont of previous mention, pa.ssed away several years ago. “I made the trip to Brock yesterday,” the Boston man said, “and the landscape everywhere affords an amazing spectacle of gorgeous greenery. Eastern Nebraska, I tell you, presents a picture of intense beauty. Positively, it was good for the eyes.” Then my visitor from the New England region reverted to football, to which it was apparent he had intended from the first to devote main attention. And this is what he said: “Since my four seasons of football at the university of near 50 years ago, I’ve witnes.secl numerous games, but the game of all games of my experience was that Nebraska-Stanford Rose Bowl battle of a year ago last January at Pasadena, “Stanford surely had some ex- eeptional backs, but” — the un- flinrhing Nebraska spirit still is •nursing through his veins — “I ihall always believe that the Cornhuskers had it in them to whip Stanford on Nebraska sod.’’ « « « « TN THE service of Uncle Sam * now' at the Lubbock, Texa>', Air base is a former Lincoln youth ^Glenn Greiser, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Grieser, 528 South Tenth.

College Golf Champ Wins Pair Matches SOUTH BEND, Ind., June 25— (INS)—Medalist and Defending Champion Earl Stewart and 15 other survivors faced a double round of match play today as they began the third round of the forty-fifth national intercollegiate golf tournament on the Chain O’ Lakes course. Stewart, from Louisiana State, has to eliminate John Holmstrom, captain of the Illinois team, in the Vnorning play in order to reach this afternoon’s quarter-finals. The Louisiana red-head dispatched John Ward of Svracuse, N. Y., 1 up, and W. E. Beckford of Yale, 3 and 2, yesterday. Holmstrom moved up with a 5 and 4 victory over Dave Doud of Stanford, and then conquered Charlie Lind, Denver’s “Big Seven” champion, 3 and 2. W. R. Kuntz of Yale, who defeated George Traphagen of Stanford, 4 and 3, today faced Manuel De La Torres of Northwestern. Other third round matches scheduled today included Bob Kuntz, W. R.’s twin brother, of Yale, vs. John Kristo, Ohio State; Ray Brownell, Stanford, vs. Harold Gjolme, Washington; and Frank Tatum, Jr., Stanford, vs. Keith Welts, Washington. NEW YORK, June 25—(INS) —I.arry French, who at the of 34 had enough ambition while boi.ing the hours away in Havana to add a knuckle ball to an already extensive lepc’toive L now sailing along serenely in the forefront of the National league with six victories to his credit The large Californian wa!=n’t content with the curious antics of a well-trained screwball—he .'e- sired and obtained by industrious practice the eccentricities of the “butterfly pitch.” That the combination of the two has been a baffling success no rival baisman will doi'bt, particularly since he ha.4 been extremely niggardly with hits. Amazing Record That he is still undefeated is not the most remarkable th'.ng about the man who won but five and lost 14 with the Chicago Cubs in 1941. When he completed the subjugation of the Pittsburgh Pirates 6 to 2, Tuesday niPht after Whitlow Wyatt had chr^n to retire, French had tossed 55 innings without yielding any more than five earned runs. This, the equivalent of six full games, is slightly on tne extraordinary side, because it means that Larry’s earned run average is as low as 0.82. Or to make it sound even more impressive, eight-tenths of an earned run per game. Two of the five earned runs charged against his account were made by the Braves in his first appearance of the season--a relief job that lasted but two-thirds of an inning. So, since ihat slut- tery beginning he h.is permitted but three earned runs over a stretch of 54 sessions. Wyatt Needs Sunshine It is not likely that Wyatt will be assigned to another 7 o’clock game. It was very evident in the cool of the evening that the gentleman from Georgia had nothing smaller to throw at the Pirates than cantaloupes. In other words, he had little or nothing on the ball and was smart enough to request a replacement after he had pitched two innings in which the Frischmen frisked him for four hits and two runs. Wyatt said his arm was tight and, although he is just a month younger than Larry French himself, it is evident that he needs the hot sun of af’ernoon to start the sap in his oíd soupbone.

June 25—(AP)—How high will the highest flying human fly from the ground under his own steam? And just what is it that stands between him and a new all-time record for the pole vault? These were a couple of things that buzzed through what passes for our alleged thinker the other day as we watched, very closely, the preparations Cornelius Warmerdam made for his assault on a strip of wood that hung some 15 feet 9 inches over the turf at Randall’s Island stadium. BAR SLID INTO PIT. O “Corny,” as he is called, was trying for a new world record at that height, as one of the features of the national A. A. U. championships. He had gone over each successive height during the regular competition on his very first try and seemed to be in the best form he has showm here since coming from San Francisco last winter to show the rest of the w’orld the way to fly. On his first two attempts “Corny” tipped the bar roughly and failed. On his last, a magnificent leap, he soared through the air, cleared it and started down. Whatever happened, we W’on’t ever know, but some slight portion of his jersey must have barely scraped the bar for it wavered and slipped off, crashing to the sawdust pit a split second after the champion had landed on his shoulders. “That was a tough one,” said “Corny,” afterward. “1 thought I had made it.” THINKS HE CAN MAKE IT. “I still think I can make 16 feet and maybe 16 feet 2 inches on the proper runway,” said War­ merdam. “The footing was mushy at Randall’s Island stadium and, though it was much better than the basepath on which I ran at the Polo Grounds in the sports carnival a couple weeks ago, the vault of 14 feet 8 inches I made that day was better than the 15:2 I did Saturday.” Warmerdam says the lift you get from the runway is the main thing in vaulting and if you have a lightning fast runway and a good, high grip on the pole, your Total* 35 11 21 10 Total* 26 4 21 10 Kolb ran for Chubbock In the fourth; Lutz ran for Chubbock in the fifth.

While there are scarcely three other vaulters in the nation who figure to do 15 feet this year, “Corny’s” tips might do them some good. POLE SHOWS WEAR. “I hold my old pole (which is full of tape and rapidly showing signs of old age) 13 feet 8 inches from its base,” said Warmerdam. Since most vaulters can jump about three feet above their grip, “Warmy” figures, with a go<^ runw’ay and the maximum effort on his “push-away,” he someday might make 16 feet 2 inches. He goes not attach too much importance to his “pull-up” or “pole climbing,” as he calls it. “The sprint, take-off and push aw'ay do it,” says “Corny.” Keep ’em flying!

Dodgers Idle, But Qain By Cardinals* Defeat V’EW YORK, June 25—(INS)—Brooklyn was nine full games ahead today in its runaway race for the National league pennant. The Dodgers, idle yesterday, picked up a full game on the Cardinals when Boston defeated St. Louis twice, 6 to 2 and 3 to 1. Jim Tobin, who notched his first victory in more than a month, pitched the Braves to their opening triumph. Rookie “Wild” Bill Donovon scored his first major league win in the nightcap, yielding only five hits. Frank Demaree and Chet Ross hit homers for the Braves in the first tilt. REDS SLAP DOWN GIANTS O ------------------------------------------------- the end of the first nine. He picked up another hole on No. 10 but Reed, who h; d been definitely “out of the groove.” then began to hit the beam. “Whitey” whittled aw'ay and, going to No. 16, the match was all square. Alter added Nos, 16 and 17 to his string and Reed, w'ho is home from the army on leave, was a beaten man. Reed ea.sed out of the tourna- mi lit with a “well, it was fun while it lasted.” He wa.s scheduled to depart next Sunday night for hi.s army post at Fort Ord, Calif., but received w'ord today that he mu.st leave Saturday night. So, Thursday he forfeited his first consolation match to R. B. Scott. Second prime upset w'as registered by “Lum” Doyle. Doyle took out Don Albin, University of Nebraska linksman, by a 1 up margin. Albin shot a 38-40—78, which was two strokes better than Doyle had for the layout, but it w'as a different matter on holes won and lost. FOLSOM WORRIES PHIL. Young Burton Folsom almost had the No. 1 upset of the day in his grasp in his battle with Phil Aitken. Folsom fired even par golf on the first nine to go three up on Aitken, who is one of the tourney favorites. Aitken rallied to win No. 10, but on No. 11 Folsom sank a 35-footer from just off the green to par the hole for a half after Aitken had rammed home a putt. Aitken took No. 12. Then on No. 13, Folsom barely missed his approach shot for an eagle three and took a four. Aitken stayed in the buggy, though, halving the hole with a 10-foot putt. Folsom bogeyed No. 14 to Aitken’s par and the match was all even. Then, on No. 15, Young Burt watched three tee shots go out of bounds and had to concede the hole. His game fell apart right there and he lost the next two and the match. But Aitken knew he had been given a battle. MEGINNIS TRIPS MALONE. Harry Meginnis had one of the day’s biggest galleries watching him as he overcame a three-down disadvantage to trounce Bob Malone, 2 up. Erv Rucklos, who accounted for the low round of the day, was only one over par in beating Hugh Mooney, 3 and 2. Don Pegler measured Fred Aldrich, 4 and 3, while Ted Sick ousted R. B. Scott, and 6. Herb Deurmyer, who twice has won the city title, defeated Phil Debus, 4 and 2. Keith Powell, who well may be the most overlooked darkhorse, was even with par figures for the first nine, then only one over from then on, as he beat Ed Maul, 6 and 5. Powell was to meet Emil Frank in the second round. Some of the day’s better scores: BEST WED.YESDAY CARDS. Par out .............4 4 4 4 3 4 4 5 4—36 Fisher ............ .4 4 4 5 3 4 5 5 4—38 B.

Johnny Murphy, the Yankees’ ace relief pitcher, saved the verdict for Marvin Breuer, entering the game as the Browns threatened in the seventh frame.

Milnar allowed only five hits in scoring his fourth victory and also contributed a home run to the 15-hit Tribe attack. Tom Turner belted a home run with the bases jammed in the eighth stanza to give the Chicago White Sox a 6 to 0 win over the Washington Senators.

Lyle Holland, playing in the third flight, turned in the shot Thursday that had witnesses on the eighteenth green all agog. Hol- Ir.nd had defeated Ron Shuman, 7 and 6, and merely was finishing out the round. His tee shot was long on the “L” shaped hole and on his second he was some 145 yards away from the hole. Using a seven-iron, Holland put the ball about a foot past the cup and the backspin carried it right back into the cup for an eagle-two. Bob Malone, who wilted on the back nine to lose to Harry Meginnis, had a luck shot on No. 6 which gave him a two-up lead at that point. His approach shot hit Goodman v. Kraft In Trans-Sipp Battle KANSAS CITY, June 25 — (AP)—A Denver schoolman added finals flavor to a second-round match of the Trans-Mississippi golf tournament today when he faced Johnny Goodman, three- times champion. John Kraft, physical education director of Denver schools, is rated the best putter in the tourney and given an even chance to upset the Omahan who once held national amateur and open crowns. The winner of the Kraft- Goodman battle will pause briefly to catch his breath, then tackle Jim Walsh, 230-pound Kansas City railroad engineer, or Art Wangler, Kansas City. Walsh and Wangler tangle while Goodman is seeking to dispose of Kraft. First- round results included: Olenn Osttnan, Hlllcrest, Kansaz City, defeated Paul Cottlngha,m, Happy Hollow, Omaha. 3-4.
