, I1 By Dick Becker Des Moines, la. AH the Big 8 Conference football coaches predict a great scrap this fall not a Kansas boat race but a horse race all the way. Despite being picked overwhelmingly to win the championship, Kansas' Jack Mitchell provided the rest of the mentors with their most encouraging news of the 17th annual pre - season session with the press, radio and TV here Saturday. Mitchell said that Bert Coan, the Jayhawks tremendous halfback, definitely will not play at all this year. Coan in School Coan, whose recruitment brought about probation for Kansas, was sentenced to miss the first 5 games this fall by Big 8 dons. He could have circumvented the punishment by laying out of school this year. But Mitchell said Coan would go to school this fall arid, because of a broken leg, suffered in spring practice, wouldn't play this season and maybe never again. Nebraska's Bill Jennings told the group he would definitely stkk with Bill (Thunder) Thornton at left halfback. 'When we have him at left half, fullback looks weak and when we have him at fullback, halfback looks weak. But we are definitely committed to playing him at halfback,' Jennings said. "We're going to throw the ball more,' Jennings added. "We're not going to extremes, but oOr quarterbacks will Mi throw dropback and, running passes. We feel we have both the throwers and receivers necessary this year. 4We didn't look too good in our passing in our Alumni game but we still are going to go ahead with it out of necessity," Condition Important In listing the things needed to put the Cornhuskers over the hump Jennings said:. "Our success depends on the condition of the players when they report back this fall. We are inviting only 52 or 53 back and this isn't many when you start eliminating players." "We have both fullback Noel Martin and guard Ed MitcneU recovering from Knee ogerayons, lftftjne it of them can play we will be lucky but we certainly need them both." 'We have some players in summer school (Bernie Clay, Rudy Johnson, Willie Ross) who we need badly." Jennings said the first two games would be the most important on the schedule. "So many factors enter into the game of football," he pointed out. "You must approach games with North Dakota and Arizona just like we did Texas and Minnesota last year. Everyone you play is a good team. "We are counting heavily on some fine sophomores. Included in this list would be quarterback Dennis Claridge, tackle Bob Brown, end Chuck Doepke, center Lyle Sittjer, (Smmhm mm South Minus ee But Oh, That ayers Strong Arm k ir ir Throivs to Speedy Legs South Quarterback Rusthoven pitches. Casper Shoots 69 To Maintain Lead Chubby Golfer Tops Thin Paul Harney by 2 Strokes Silver Spring, Md.

That sent him into the final round today with a two - stroke lead over the thin man from Worcester, Mass., Paul Harney. Casper weathered a storm of subpar rounds by others, including a course record 64 by Ted Kroll of Fort Lauderdale, FJa. Harney was one of 4 In the field of 93 to shoot 66 and it gave him a total of 208. Kroll's conquest of the 7,031 - yard course, one stroke lower than ever shot before in its 5 years of existence, moved him no closer than a 7th. Casper for the second straight day couldn't get the most out of his usually reliable putter. He battled to stay even with par through the first 13 holes before knock ing in two straight birdies.

Rebels Thrash North 32 - 0 in Shrine Bowl By Conde Sargent North - South battles have been relived throughout the U.S. In this Civil War Centennial year but Nebraska had a new outcome S aturday. The South was an overwhelming 32 - 0 victor in the Shrine Bowl's gridiron war between the state's top prep football players before 17 ,000 fans at Nebraskas Memorial Stadium. General Robert E. Lee would have been a proud winner had he had the brilliance on offense as Omaha Central's Gale Sayers or the stubbornness and meanness on defense as the Shrine's South line. It was victory No. 3 in a row for the South in as many tries. And the big winner yet has to receive the benefit the Twin Cities Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children which should be blessed with more than $60,000 from the profits of the contest. Sayers, a speedy 183 - pound - er with great balance, scored 4 touchdowns and progressively became more impressive as the game went on. It was his last touchdown, a 27 - yard jaunt, that created the largest stir among the spectators. Sayers ran around left end and seemingly was stopped 3 times when he broke back to the center and waltzed into the end zone leaving a string of white - shirted North players on the ground. His other running TD was a 43 - yard untouchable. The North never got off the ground, mainly because the Rebel line wasn't about to be budged. The South crew, led by Lincoln High's Basyl Hulewicz, Superior's Larry McCord, Co - zad's Walt DeWitt, and Omaha South's D w a n e Novak, didn't let anyone (including Broken Bow's heralded Kent McCloughan) through to t h e secondary. Only in passing did the North compare with the South. Rebel passers Bill King of Omaha Tech and Frank Spencer! of Crelghion Prep managed 88 yards with 7 completions in 11 tries. That topped the South aerial production by two yards, all thrown by Omaha Westside's Terry Rusthoven. Two of the South tosses, however, were hauled in by Sayers for touchdowns one that opened the scoring early in the second period for 51 yards and another for 26 in the 3rd quarter Hushing statistics was a horse of another color. North managed only 29 net yards while the South was marching for 263. In fact, the South moved so well that Rusthoven punted only once on the first series of plays. Sayers, as suspected, was the big ground gainer, getting 95 yards in only 6 carries. Heady Jim Tederman, of Hol - drege whose only trouble was Continued on Page 4Dt Col. 2.

The Chiefs outhit the Foxes 9 - 4 in Saturday night's curtain raiser but a 5 - run inning was too much for the Chiefs to overcome.
