Deacons Stili Rebuilding Stoll Sees Improvements By DON FORSYTHE Win, lose or tie Wake Forest’s Demon Deacons are assured of one record as they meet a Big Eight opponent for the first time at Nebraska Saturday. A Wake Forest team has never played befoi« a crowd of over 60,000 and Cornhusker ticket manager Jim Pittenger is expecting a sellont mark of nearly 67,000 for the Nebraska home opener. Two years ago the Deacons played before S7,694 as they bowed, 28-27, at Purdue. Former Michigan State aide Cal Stoll, in his second year of a rebuilding program, believes his club is stronger than a year ago. He points to improvement at quarterback and in the recievers and more depth as factors which help the Deacons improve on a 3-7 finish of a year ago. Stoll is going right down to the wire on his a decision as to who his starting quarterback will be. Incumbent Larry Russell, a jupior lefthander, and sophomore Jim McMahen are the contenders. Early in fall practice Stoll said he’d base his decision on * how many times each one got the ball over the goal line in scrimmages. But he’s had to come up with a new tie-breaker because both Russell and McMahen have accounted for eight touchdowns in the Deacons’ pre-season scrimmages. Russell is regarded as a better runner and McMahen a better passer. A pair of junior college imports, fullback Larry Hopkins and halfback Ken Garrett, are being counted on to pace the ground attack. Nobody’s certain what Garrett will mean to the Deacons, but the 6-2, 200-iwund transfer from national junior college champion Northeastern of LINCOLN, NEB., THURSDAY, SEPT. 10, 197d-P.M. PAGE 13 Miami, Okla., carries impressive credentials. He has :09.6 speed in the 100 and :04.4 speed in the 40. He joined the Deacons this fall, but suffered a sprained ankle in the second day of contact work and hasn’t taken part in any scrimmages. Bruner Stock Champ Norm Bruner of Brainard, Neb,, jumped into the lead from the outside position in the front row on the first lap and led all the way to win the 25-lap Nebraska State Fair stock car championship Wednesday. It marked the third time in as many race programs at this year’s fair that a driver won the main event leading from wire to wire, torint drivers Ron Perkins of Wood River, 111., and; Ralph Parkinson, Jr., of Blue Springs, Mo., did it Sunday and Monday respectively. Bruner’s victory earned him the $400 first prize money, but Terry Richards and Dean Burling had to work harder in their battle for second place. Stoll hopes to have him ready to go against the Comhuskers. The primary targets for Russell and McMahen will be tight end Gary Winrow, last year’s top receiver, and sophomore split end Junior Moore, who was the top rusher as a halfback on last year’s freshman team. _ The area of concern on the offensive unit is the interior line. “We’ve got guards playing tackle,’’ explains Stoll. He’s shifted 6-5, 250-pounder senior Gerald McGown from the defensive unit to bolster a small corps of tackles. The defense is more settled with eight starters returning. Thisincludes outside linebacker Carlyle Pate, a 6-1, 215-pound senior. Pate skipped last season after having been the team’s leading tackier as a sophomore in 1967 and seeing limited duty because of an injury in 1968. Pate’s return, along with that of veterans Ed Bradley and Ed Stetz, gives Stoll an outstanding corps of linebackers. “They give ijs what we consider the strongest position on this year’s team,” he says. The Deacons, who use a four- man front, ask a lot of their linebackers. Bulwark of the defensive line is 6-3,239-^pound senior end Win Headley. Veteran observers in the Atlantic Coast Conference are booming him as an all- America candidate. The only rookie to crack the defensive alignment is right end Chris Teague. With starters Pat McHenry, Dick Bozoian and Terry Kuharchek returning Stoll says *‘we should be in good shape in the secondary.” Another strong point is the kicking game, handled by Tracy Lounsbury. He averaged 37.7 yards on 73 punts last year and tied a school record with ' six field goals. KNOW THE Larry RusstH Wake Forest I Links, Northensl Home; East, Southeast, Pius X Atvay Prep Footballers Open With Full Slate Ken Adkins ... LHS pass catcher. By VIRGIL PARKER Prep Sports Writer Capital City football fans are in for a full dose of their favorite sport as a new season kicks off this weekend. Normally the high school squads start the action a week ahead of the University. But this fall the Nebraska home opener is sandwiched between the first two Seacrest Field prep clashes. Lincoln High plays the lid- lifter Friday night when hosting Hastings, while Northeast entertains Fremont Saturday night. The other three Capital City teams are on the road with defending city and Trans- Nebraska Conference champion East at Grand Island, Southeast travels to North Platte, while Pius X goes to Beatrice. Each Lincoln team has played the same foe on opening weekend for several years, but Southeast coach Frank Solich thinks this could be the toughest test. “Every one of our opponents seems greatly improved,” Solich says. “Redding (North Platte coach Crump Redding) is always pessimistic about his team. Except this year. He’s really talking up his chances. His son is a darn good quarterback, yet he moved him to an end position. You know that if he can afford to do that he must have a lot of talent.” East' coach LeRoy Zentic agrees. “Grand Island has traditionally been a football power in the state,” the Spartan mentor notes, “yet they’ve been below their normal standards the last couple of seasons. They expect to be back full strength this fall. I don’t look forward to this trip at all.” Bob Els, wiw assumes t h e reins at Northeast this fall as Lincoln’s only new coach, commented that Fremont coach Jack Bryant, with senior halfback Ritch Bahe spearheading the attack, will have his most potent offense in years. “I'm just glad we’re playing them at home,” El.s admits. Beatrice was a first-week Class A victim of Class B Pius X last fall, and ’Bolts coach Vince Aldrich knows the Orangemen will be try'mg to prevent a repeat at their home opener. Hastings will be aiming for its first win over the Links. Lincoln High has won 14 of the 17 previous meetings, though Hastings has managed a tie in three of the last five encounters.

But the St. Louis skipper still can talk about taking it all ... as long as the front-runners keep playing giveaway. “We’re going to win the pennant,” Schoendienst proclaimed, with a straight face, after his Cardinals knocked off the plodding Pittsburgh Pirates 6-4 Wednesday night. The Pirates’ third straight setback cost them undisputed possession of the top spot for the first time in 5% weeks. But the New York Mets, given an opportunity to pass Pittsburgh, could do no better than split a twi-nighter with Philadelphia for a share of the lead. -And the third-place Chicago Cubs remained one game back after a 3-2 loss to last-place Montreal.

The Twins-A’s nightcap was rained out, along with the Milwaukee-Kansas City single game. . The Cardinals erased a 4-0 Pittsburgh lead with three-run rallies in the fifth and sixth innings, Ted Simmons’ two-run double keyed the first uprising and ex-Pirate Carl Taylor pinch hit a run-scoring bloop double in the middle of the second burst, enabling left-hander Frank Bertaina to pick up his first victory of the year. Willie Montanez, just recalled from the minors, stroked a run- scoring pinch single in the ninth to send the Phillies past the Mets in their opener. But southpaw Ray Sadecki earned the home club a split by taming the Phils on four hits and striking out 12 in the nightcap, Duffy Dyer provided the margin of victory with a bases- loaded single in the sixth. Light-hitting Bobby Wine beat the Cubs with a two-out, run-scoring single in the ninth and also contributed a pair of defensive gems at shortstop. Rookie Milt Wilcox fired a five-hitter for the Reds, whose magic number dwindled to seven en route to clinching the NL West title. Lee May drove in two runs with a double and his 30th homer. Bob Tillman’s leadoff homer in the 11th triggered a three- run Atlanta flurry in the opener at San Diego, but the Padres rebounded behind Earl Wilson, who hurled four shutout innings of relief for his first NL victory and rapped his 35th career homer — two short of Wes Ferrell’s record for pitchers. Willie Mays slammed his 25th and 26th homers, good for five RBI’s, to carry the Giants past Nebraska Workouts Go Light Nebraska football coach Bob Devaney started tapering off procedures with his Com­ huskers Wednesday as they worked just 90 minutes in preparation for Saturday’s home opener against Wake Forest. Light workouts are scheduled Thursday and Friday with the primary concern being that of having the Comhuskers fresh for the opener. The quarterback situation cleared somewhat Wednesday in that Jerry T a g g e ’ s availability looked certain and Van Brownson’s availability looked doubtful. “Tagge looks better, but we haven’t had him running much. Brownson looks more doubtful all the time,” said a concerned Devaney, who says that Van’s ailing elbow is not improving noticeably. Devaney speculated that Wake Forest would throw a stunting-type defense at the Comhuskers. ’’They have stunted quite a bit in some games last year,” he observed, “so we’ve tried to work against every stunt we can imagine they might use from an even front.” The Cornhusker coach added that the Deacons could spring some surprises on offense, too. The Deacons ran with a full house backfield in 1969, but have gone to a pro set attack this year. Feature Racen At Belmont Football Two veteran plac*ekickers, George Bianda of Oakland and Lou Michaels of Baltimore, were put on waivers. Bianda was not claimed and will be kept by the raidws. Hous'ton cut former Cornhusker Carel Stith; Dallas traded defensive end Willie Townes to New Orleans for a draft choice; San Diego ()btaineJ kicker Jerry DePoyster from Detroit; Atlanta obtained former Kansas State tackle Lynn Larson from Chicago and Denver put John Huard on the reserve list.
