Those of us in the latter category may have rrdssed something. At least that's the impression I got while visiting with the former Cornhusker and professional football star this week. And he was a star, make no mistake about that. He was such a star that he was just last week inducted into the Professional Football Hall of Fame at Canton, Ohio. Lyman, who played for Nebraska in 1918, 1919 and 1921 has covered more ground than your grandmother’s caddy. And most of that ground was on football fields. For many years the record books carried the fact that Lyman played in the most games and logged the most playing time (303 games and 268 hours). Glad to Be Out Based on that last statistic it is interesting to note that there was one time Link was glad to be out of a game. It came up in some razzing between Lyman and Clarence Swanson, the NU regent who played alongside one another. ..The occasion was in 1919 in the opening game against Iowa which had Duke Slater, a giant of a man who was one of the greats of his day. Swanson recalls that coach H. Schulte warned the squad: “They’ve got a great player, but if you’ll work on his shins you won’t have any trouble.’’ ' The advice wasn’t too effective. The game hadn’t been on long before Lyman, playing opposite Slater, was Duck-Pi 118 New York (UPD—The game of duck-pin bowling was originated in the spring of 1900 by two baseball greats—John McGraw of the New York Giants and Wilbert Robertson of the Brooklyn Dodgers, who were co-owners of the Diamond Bowling Alleys in Baltimore, Md.

We gave the franchise back to the league." “He said I could. 1 gave them some drills and the guys loved It. The next day Halas (Cieorge, the Bears' owner) called and wanted to know what I'd done. He said the guys loved what we'd done the day before. Chevy, Md. (UPI) — Fred Mcl^od, PGA professional at Columbia country club here, won two national •'hampionships 30 years apart. He won the U.S. Open in 1908 and the PGA Seniors title in 1938. Another Venture James D.

That was the only time I was ever glad to be out of a game Lyman said, remembering that it was played in the mud and Iowa won, 18-0. He feels now that it might not have been a very schrewd move to give the club back to the league. It was sold several times and eventually brought $6 million the last time it changed hands. That franchise is now the Detroit Lions. “He wanted to know what I'd take to join the staff, but I told him I was already committed to Nebraska.” O hium I Train Lyman, now a semi-retired insurance executive near I^s Angeles, had a fantastic career in the pros, playing with Canton, Cleveland and the Chicago Bears. Lyman and four of h i s teammates even bought the Canton franchise at one time for $3,5(X). “The first two weeks of the year we had good weather and made enough money to pay everyone off," he says. “But after that the weather was bad Cnuf'liiii^ Innovation As much of his exploits on the football field Lyman takes pride in his part in helping advance coaching theories. Lyman, who coached at Nebraska from 1935 until 1941, says he was at the Chicago Bears training camp the summer before he joined the Husker coaching staff. “Clark Shaughnessy was coaching the Bears then and he was working with the backs. The linemen were just standing around. 1 asked Shaughnessy if I Not Hurting Game Lyman is still an avid fan and normally watches Nebraska play a couple time a season. Last year, however, he saw them play only on television in t h e Orange Bowl. But he was well versed and rattled off the Husker players with ease. Speaking of television, Lyman said that he didn't feel the additional televising of professional football would harm the game. “That makes pro football," he says. “And I think also the college teams are affected by it. It gives the college teams a chance to see good teams play, too.’ Even on Elephant Can't Remember All the Deductions for INCOME TAX Our people are trained to prepare your income tax returns, giving you every allowable deduction.
