Cowboys Dump Huskers Stillwater (J*)—Nebraska apparently saw any hopes of a Big Eight baseball title crumble as it dropped a single game to Oklahoma State, 2-0. as both Missouri and Iowa »State swept three-game series. The Cowboys rode the four- hit pitching of Richard Frank and an inside-the-park home mn by Tony Sellari to the victory after losing a twin- bill to the Huskers on Friday. Sellari’s homer came in the second inning. The Pokes’ final tally came in the sixth when Fred Moulder tripled and scored on Ron McCord’s single. Frank struck out three and! walked only one.

T—1:50. A-900. By DON FORS\THE Missouri’s Big Eight indoor track champions tuned up for next week’s outdoor championships in Lincoln with an 8263 dual meet decision over Nebraska Saturday. The Tigers, who haven’t lost a dual or triangular meet since 1962, used a 17-1 advantage in the hurdle events to pull away from the Cornhusk- ers. Nebraska’s swift Charlie Greene and Missouri’s ace miler, Robin Lingle, limited their work to their specialties and relay appearances. Greene breezed home ahead of Missouri’s Charles Allen in a :09.5 hundred, erasing a dual meet record of :09.6 established in 1926 by Nebraska’s Roland Locke and equaled in 1963 by Ray Knaub. Charlie also anchored the winning 440-yard relay quartet, but skipped the 220, won by Allen. Lingle, who last week ran 4:01.7, was content with a 4:12.2 Saturday and it broke the 1963 record of 4:13.3 by Nebraska’s Mike F’leming. The Philadelphia senior also contributed a leg on Missouri’s mile relay team which upset the Cornhuskers. The Nebraska bid fell short despite a brilliant :46.3 anchor leg by Dave Crook, who had earlier shattered a meet record with a :47.5 win in the 440. Tre Cornhuskers lost ground when sophomore Dennis Walker had a recurrence of a muscle injury midway through his leadoff leg and hobbled in some 25 yards behind Missouri’s Steve Halliburton. Lingle’s absence in the three-mile run enabled the Cornhuskers to make their best showing on the track as Jim Scherzberg and Larry Toothaker ran 1-2 ahead of Missouri’s Joe Charleville. A second Missouri entry, Dan Dykstra, recorded a track rarity when he jumped the Continued on Page 2C, Col. 8 A Love-ly Leap BY CURT MOSHER A year ago In the Nebraska spring football finale a young sophomore named Harry Wilson stole the offensive show. He w’ent on to prove a valuable hand and starred in the I Cotton Bowl. I If that started any kind of a pattern, the next man in line is Dennis Richnafsky. “Offensively, the star of the game was Dennis Richnaf- sky,’’ said coach Bob Devan- j ey, who witnessed the Reds’ i 33-27 victory over the Whites ! before 7,000 fans from the i press box. I “He caught the ball better i than anyone I’ve seen in this stadium since I’ve been here,’’ Devaney praised. Playing with the Reds, who were made up of the top defensive unit and the No. 2 off e n s i V e team, Richnafsky caught four passes for 35 yards and two of the catches were genuine circus ,grabs. | And what’s more, Richnaf-i sky. 5-10, 170-pounder f r o m | Clairton, Pa., was playing i with a bad thumb. When reminded that Rich-1 nafsky was playing on a squad; loaded with good ends, Devaney said: “If he catches the ball better than the rest of the fellows, he’ll be playing.” The No. 1 split end, Freeman White, who played for i the Whites (the top offensive unit and the No. 2 defensive ! Los Angeles team), caugbt five passes for 101 yards. “Freeman made one tre- Reds Prevail, 33-27, In NU Grid Windup By HAL BROWN The Whites had the top individual stars but the Reds displayed superior overall strength to rack up a 33-27 win in the annual intra- squad game winding up Nebraska’s spring football drills Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium. A crowd of 7,000 that watched tlie proceedings with one eye on the field and the other eye on the darkening skies got out of the stadium just before a downpour hit. The intrasquad contest made the switch of Freeman White to split end and Tony Jeter to right end look like a wise move on the part of the NU coaching staff with White on the receiving end of two scoring passes from veteran quarterback Bob Churchich. The full-game scrimmage also gave Cornhusker fans a good look at another glue­ fingered end in sophomore Dennis Richnafsky plus a bundle of sophomore backs who showed they might help as the Scarlet and Cream Standings SECTION C, MAY 9, 1965-PACE 1C gridders go after a third straight Big Fhght crown next fall. Among the sophomore backs standing out were Mickey Ziegler, a Pius X graduate who has gained little mention thus far in his stint at NU, along with Charley Winters, Ben Gregory and Ernie Sigler, all of whom have attracted attention during last fall’s two-game slate and in earlier spring drills. One of the key factors in the Red victory was t h e defensive secondary work of veterans Ron Poggemeyer and Larry Wachholtz. Wachholtz intercepted a Dennis Morrison pass as the Whites were knocking at the Red end zone in the fourth quarter that stopped that threat and Poggemeyer came through with one pass interception and a fumble recovery for the Red defensive unit. Both Wachholtz and Poggemeyer were effective returning punts and Poggemoy- er handled the Red punting chores adequately. But the top individual stars were veterans Churchich and VVTite with Churchich hitting seven of 13 passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns. White was on the receiving end of five of them for 101 yards. He got both of Churchich’s TD flings. The Whites, with Churchich at the controls, moved downfield quickly after taking the opening kickoff to score in 11 plays from 80 yards away. Big plays in the drive were a 12-yard pass to White, an 18-yard scamper around the left side by fullback Pete Tatman, an eight- yard pitch to White and the final pass to White that covered 16 yards to the end zone with 10:29 remaining in the first quarter. Duncan Drum’s extra point kick was good, giving the Whites a 7-0 margin.
