AUTHORIZED HEADQUARTERS SERVICE STOP HERE By NorrU Anderuon BY NDRRI.H ANDERSON. T^ORMAN, Okla.—(By Special Wire)—Make no mistake, the drawling citizens down h’yar are solidly behind the Sooners ...In this land of oil wells and 3.2 brew, the chatter in cafes, bistros and barber shops revolves mostly around Joe Golding and his Oklahoma grid mates.. .Oklahoma A (k M, nationally noted as a grid power, rates nothing more than “Oh, that's the school down at StlU-. water” in these parts. We heard several barber chair fans say that the Sooner victory over Missouri last week was an “Awful ‘disappointment.’ We had to grab their fumbles to even score,” explained the gentleman . . . Beating Missouri 27-7 cannot be classed as disappointing — anyway not in Husker annals , . . There still remains plenty of respect for pre-war Nebraska teams down here ... Up to the game Saturday, the all-time Sooner percentage of victory against Scarlet elevens was a war-boosied .727. We met a fellow named Frank Barrett in the lobby of the Biltmore hotel . . . Frank, a former Lincoln resident, is the brother of Art and Max, the official ... He remembers Bcr- nie Masterson from the days the Husker coach used to practice swimming at the “Y” where he was an instructor . . . Another present Oklahoman who was rooting for the Huskers was A. C. Brusn, ex-Lincoln business man ...Still another Lincolnite here was Charley McAhan, ex-shop foreman at The Star. Tht'y call Golding “Escalator Joe” in local newspaper yarns ...The handle describes how the ground-gaining demon runs smoothly enough to remind one of a man riding an escalator in a crowded department store while everyone else crowds and jostles on the stairs. A stage show, featuring Henry King, was the Friday night menu for the NU squad ...Oklahoma is home territory for Mike DiBlase, 230-pound Scarlet tackle . . . Mighty Mike played with the Norman Zoom- ers, a navy eleven, during the war . . . Fullback Gerry Moore was stationed near Oklahoma City as a pilot. Every Big Six school in our memory starts Saturday games at 2 p. m., except the Sooners, who persist in keeping that late 2:30 p. m, starting time . . . It’s especially tough on members of the newspaper fraternity with early deadlines . . . The Huskers were impressed by the size of Taft stadium, scene of the Friday workout . . . Although used as a prep field, the stadium is as large as most in the Big Six ... Oklahoma has a keen ear cocked to national grid honors in the near future . . . Most pre­ game stories on the OU-NU game were slanted toward giving the Sooners a comparison with the Rose Bowlers of UCLA, Nebraska’s foe in Los Angeles Saturday ... An amusing sidelight on the train trek into Oklahoma City was the conversation between Ad Lewandowski, NU athletic director, and an officer in the Chinese army... The Far Eastern gentleman sat near Lew and cropped up with a conversation that w’as a bit too broken for immediate interpretation. Dick Hutton was wearing his new “N” sweater, recently issued to the 1945 track lettermen ... Speedy Dick has been very much in the Oklahoma sport sheets all week . . . The word CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. The University of Georgia Bull- = dogs overpowered the stubborn; University of Chattanooga Moccasins for three quarters Saturday in win handily, 48-27, before anj overcoated homecoming crowd of 10 , 000 . The contest practically assured the Bulldogs, who played most of the game with the mighty Charley Trippi on the bench, of a post season bowl bid. Georgia meets Georgia Tech next week. Probably the most exciting mo­ menta came in the last quarter when little Chattanooga, still fighting valiantly, scored three touchdowns chiefly thru the air. Little All-America candidate Gene Roberts, leading scorer of the nation, and Passer Howard Derrick sparked the Moccasin comeback. Trippi, who rolled thru the Chattanooga line with ease, played only long enough to build Georgia’s lead to 19-0. Huskers (('nntinupd from Pagp ¡'It.) Goad who did the dirty work, fie snared a pass from Darrel Royal for 14 yards to put the leather on the Nebraska 16 and a moment later took another flip from the O.U. game captain on the 8-yard stripe and bucked his way thru three Husker tacklers to score. This time Marlin's kick was wide. Little Dick Hutton and Cletus Fischer w'ere Nebraska’s ground gainers and “Hut” was always dangerous. Carl SamueLson and Gene Wilkins were most effective in the line. The Grand Island tackle played 55 minutes of the game. The Sooners outdowned the Scarlet, 20 to 9 and gained 257 yards to N.U.^s even 60. The summary: Nebrmaka Pot.

Cornhusker Alumni Asked for Su[)[)orl . . . Achievement Fund in Need of Cash CÆK tÂtAU NEW TIRES BY WAI.LY PROVOST. The University of Nebraska’s Cornhusker Achievement Fund isn’t going to bring any Fred Shlreys from Latrobe, Pa., or any Bob McNutts from Colby, Kas., to strengthen Scarlet athletic teams. That’s not its purpose. As more than 7,000 alumni arc finding out thru letters recently mailed to them by an advi.«ory committee requesting financial aid, the fund has been set up to make possible the enrollment or continued attendance of male NE- TURKEY SHOOT SALT VALLEY GUN CLUB SHELLS FOR SALE at Grounds 8 miles North of Lincoln between 14th and 27th St. BRASKA prep school gr^ids at the state university. has traveled fast around the Big Six concerning the Husker scat- back star.. .Fi lly as busy as the proverbial one-handed paper hanger was Ed Weif, NU track coach, who photographs the football games.. .Ed had a hard time transferring his numerous gadgets during the two train transfers enroute to Oklahoma City . . .

Lenea nraach Of fie* 2719 N*. 48 HELP VS- BESIDES meeting four requirements which deal with scholastic ability, leadership qualities, moral character and "physical vigor as shown by interest in physical sports,” applicants for fund scholarships must be in need of financial assistance. Twenty-nine football, basketball and track athletes at N.U. have already received first-half payments on $200 scholarships and. as the alumni letter points out, completion of this initial grant will take more cash than is now on hand in the fund. To make it a little clearer to those who think the fund’s main purpose is to provide each football regular with a new limousine, the letter cites the case of a typical football player who must practice a minimum of three hours a day, six days a week in the spring and fall, at the same time maintaining satisfactory grades in 12 hours of college work. • • • SOMEWHERE along the line this hopeful letter-winner musti find time to earn enough money | for board, room, tuition, fees, books and clothes. ' To quote the letter, “We may be v/ry interested in the young ! lad, but we can neither do his I studying nor play his football. But we can make easier his task of finding funds for tuition, for fees and for books.” Such a scholarship as the fund provides for (similar to those given outstanding music students, artists, writers, etc.) might have kept at home a few of the dozen former Nebraska high school athletes now performing for schools across the country from California U. in the west to Cornell in the east. AT THE END of the committee’s appeal for aid is some very rich food for thought: A 1947 Husker grid schedule which includes, among others, such foes as Minnesota, Indiana, Oregon State, Oklahoma, Missouri and Notre Dame. Allho the fund is trusteed by the University of Nebraska B’oun- dation, it is backed by such familiar Cornhusker names as Vic Halligan, Blue Howell, Dave Noble, Grove Porter and Ad Wenke.
