They^re Still Talking About: Tommy McDonald’s Catcliiiiii Ability NORMAN, Okla.—Oklahoma fans had every reason to be proud of Tommy McDonald. The great All-American halfback is a magnificent runner, but Saturday they were talking about his pass catching. The little blond speedster put on a first half exhibition that left the Huskers reeling. He caught a 46-yarder from Jimmy Harris for a touchdown as he used his blinding speed to simply outrun the Nebraska defenders. Then as the clock was running out he made two other great tries. One he stretched out and dove for in a wonderful exhibition of the spirit and hustle that has made him an Oklahoma leader. Then on the last play of the first half he picked off another long aerial, leaping up to steal it away from the Nebraska defense which was right on the spot. The clock saved Nebraska that time. But the afternoon left no doubt about McDonald's rating as an All-American. Spartan TD Spree Hits K-Stale, 38-17 StatiiHics Mich. Hi. Kan. Si. F'lrst downs .... Rushin* J ifdajfe ...
