t - B LINCOLN SUNDAY JOURNAL AND STAR Missouri ' Waltz' Hits Sour Note Full Game Effort Pleases Host of Happy Huskers By JIM RAGLINf Staff Sports Writer Early in the first quarter Missouri' football forces were mustering a potential scoring drive. "Drive all the way to Florida, shouted a Tiger on the sidelines. Shut up!" several teammates yelled. Even a coach turned to the spirited sub and frowned. But it was apparent the Missourians had a wee bit of Miami on their minds. After the game ended, dejection and bitterness, sorrow and fury masked the Tiger players' faces as they trudged to the dressing room. You, Too An assistant coach was shouting invectives against the officials, bemoaning the "bad breaks' and giving vent to his disappointment. This time the "shut up" was yelled by a raft of Husker fans in the vicinity. Across Memorial Stadium the Huskers whooped it up. Yoo can't beat a good team all the time, said Fullback Jerry Brown, fighting back a more enthusiastic appraisal of the triumph. There were some bone crunching bear hugs being applied by the NU coaches and players to one another. 'Portland Day' Frank Nappi and Willie Greenlaw, the Portland, Maine, products who teamed up for the winning touchdown, were on the receiving end of many a whack on the back or other convenient parts of the anatomy. . ' 'The ball was thrown (by Greenlaw) just right. I had made up my mind I was going to catch it when the play was called. "There were a couple of Missouri guys around me, but it was right at me and I got it," said Nappi. It rates as one of his top thrills in football, as well it might. Other NU player comments: Center Bob Berguin "We kept going good all four quarters this game. Their quarterback Jimmy Hunter is a fine player and Paul Browning, their right guard, is tough." Tackle LaVerne Torczon "They had as good a defensive linebackers as we have met. Hunter is the best passer we have played and a good runner on the option. They are better than Colorado offensively. "It was the best four quarters we have played all year." Quarterback George Harshman "All field goals count three points, but it sure was nice to get another one." (Harshman booted the winning field goal against Iowa State earlier in the season and added one against the Tigers Saturday.) Tackle Jack Fleming "We fought all the way. One point may not look like much, but we beat those guys!" On that happy note, we go to press. f T ' I I - - I t a Oregon Speed Spills Favored Bears, 28 - 6 Ducks Hold Early Lead For Coast Loop Upset BERKELEY, Calif. OPI - Halfback Leroy Phelps' 39 - yard scoring run the first time he carried the ball started Oregon's light brigade to a 28 - 6 football victory over California in a Pacific Coast Conference upset Saturday. Oregon's speed and California errors led to three quick touch downs from which the Bears never recovered. A crowd of 32,000 saw the Ducks take a 21 - 0 lead before the second quarter was six minutes old. Despite a 20 - pound per man ad vantage along the line, the Califor - Oregon State Hits Huskies, Smells Roses PORTLAND, Ore. (INS) - Ore gon State's Rose Bowl - hungry - Beavers unleashed a powerful task force of jet - legged running backs in Portland's Multnomah Stadium Saturday to defeat the Washington Huskies, 28 - 20, in a Pacific Coast Conference football game. A crowd of 32,890 fans roared their approval as the well drilled Beavers of Coach Tommy Pro - thro set tbe stage for a show - down battle against Stanford in Palo Alto next Saturday which may decide which of those two teams will represent the Coast in the annual Rose Bowl classic. The talented Beavers took command over Washington early, punching over two touchdowns in the first period and one each in the third and fourth quarters. Washington, held scoreless in the frist quarter, chalked up a touchdown in each of the last three periods. " Oregon State drove 83 yards in sixteen plays for its first touchdown. The drive was a beautifully executed combination of end sweeps and power plays through the middle of the Huskie line that ground out gains of 5, 6 and 7 yards at a crack for the Beavers. The drive included one pass play, good for 22 yards from Tailback Joe Francis to Halback Earnel Durden. The Beaver's 183 - pound senior fullback, Tom Berry, drove over the goal line on a one - yard plunge for the score. In the closing minutes of the second quarter the Huskies finally got their attack moving and they powered 58 yards in ten plays for a touchdown. Halfback Jim Thomas rambled eight yards around OSC's right end for the score. Oregon State scared again in the third quarter with an end sweep by Durden to climax a 76 yard drive in fourteen plays, Washington" struck back quickly after the following kickoff with a 65 - yard pass play for a touchdown. The Huskie quarterback, Talbot George, although severely rushed by the charging Oregon line, spotted his hilfback, Mike McCluskey, all alone in the Beaver secondary. George flipped the ball to McCluskey who gathered it in on the OSC 35 and ran it into the end tone for a touchdown. In the final quarter Durden put the fame on ice for OSC as he burst through the right side of the Huskie line, cut to the sidelines and raced 44 yards to score. nians could not stop the thrusts of Oregon's fast backs. Halfback Leroy Phelps started the scoring fireworks in the opening quarter when he burst 39 yards Pacific Coast the first time he carried the ball. Early In the second period, Don Gilkey lofted a punt that carried only 13 yards. Taking over at the California 38, Oregon scored in six plays. Quarterback Tom Crabtree went over from the 1. California, emulating a giveaway program in this contest before rgional television audience, gave up another second period score. Quarterback Joe Kapp fumbled and Chuck Austin pounced on the ball for Oregon at the Bear 21. Califor. nia gave up J5 on a holding penalty and Fred Miklancic rammed f .... ! yarns over his right guard to score. California produced Us only scor - ing drive early in the third quarter, going 85 yards in 15 plays with Jack Hart tallying on a 4 - yard buck. The Ducks wasted no time getting the touchdown back, going 67 yards in 10 plays. The finale was a 28 - yard dash by halfback Jim Shanley. Fullback Jack Morris converted three times to run his consecutive points after touchdown to 18, an Oregon record. r?tm , t M 7 flu - aa Cljfrn! 0 0 6 0 S Oregon acwmg Touchdowns: Pttelpa J3. run); Crabire u, run); Mlkllancic w n); - Sh8nl'v 2, run).

Roberts and stayed ahead on the running of reliable Ernie Zampese for a 28 - 12 Pacific Coast Conference football victory Saturday over Washington State. Roberts, a bruising junior, took the second half kickoff on his 4, brushed through a cluster of State players on about the 30 and sped untouched to the goal. Zampese, who scored twice for the Trojans, carried the ball eight times straight in the fourth quarter as the winners were content to eat up yardage in small chunks. Bearcat Underdogs Komp Detroit, 33 - 7 CINCINNATI CP - Three explosive plays produced first - half touchdowns Saturday as the University of Cincinnati, regarded as only a slight favorite, romped to a 33 - 7 football victory over the University of Detroit. The Bearcats killed off the Titans early before about 18,000 fans. KEEP FABRICS REFRESHED Send MEN'S Suits WalT.

It could be the successful Husker passing attack in the final quarter. It could be George Harshman's successful field goal. It could be a lot of things. But you can be sure that there were plenty of spectators reviewing the "open" offense the Huskers unveiled. For, Saturday, the Nebraska club went outside tackle. The team went around end. It passed or tried to more frequently than in previous games. There were still plenty of shots down the middle, but they were not the only method of attack the Cornhuskers used. This was a change from the past patterns when NU ground out its yardage on smashes inside the tackles. It produced some of the more drilling moments in the contest. And it caused Missouri to alter its defense. The Tigers couldn't concentrate just on stopping Nebraska in the middle. All in all, the more wide open Husker offense contributed greatly to both the victory and to the happy Homecoming.

But a spirited gang of Texans almost pulled the game out of the fire as quarterback Joe Clements and halfback Walter Fondren ran the Ponies silly in the second half.

W Texas Tech spotted Oklahoma A&M a 13 - 0 lead through the first 16 minutes of play before roaring back for two touchdowns before the half as the interstate rivals fought to their second successive 13 - 13 tie Saturday. Halfback Duane Wood raced 15 yards in the first with a punt return to open the scoring, but M. C. Odell missed the extra point. Quarterback Johnny Allen capped a 33 - yard Aggie drive after 45 seconds of the second quarter, plunging a yard and Odell added the extra point to insure the tie. Unable to get past their own 33 in the first quarter and completely stymied by the Aggies, the Raiders suddenly came to life. Halfback Duke Frisbie sparked the Raiders with a 72 - yard touchdown sprint and quarterback Don Williams added the point. . Late in the same quarter, the Raiders marched 53 yards on seven plays to tie up the game. Quarterback Buddy Hill's 43 - yard pass play to halfback M. C. Norths m featured the drive. Northam was in the clear on the Aggie 20, but slipped and fell at the 11. Four plays later, fullback Gene Bentley, whose 245 - pound bulk shredded the Aggie line, plunged over.
