Hunters were reporting lots of birds but far too much cover for “easy” hunting. As a result the birds per man ratio was not overly encouraging. Top report was from North Platte, w'here warden Sam Grasmick reported 4 birds per man. Grasmick said he had check^ 70 resident hunters and' 25 non-resident hunters, a 11 reporting more birds than last year. Roy Owens of Crete reported an average of 2 birds per man with the advice that many hunters were quitting too soon. He said he noticed many birds came out of the heavy cover just before nightfall. Lee Bower of Benkelman checked 76 hunters with '42 birds, with the hunters reporting “plenty of birds.” Bower also reported one hunter, Corby Stroup of Benkelman, was bitten lay a rattlesnake.

It was a bruising Big 8 Conference contest that supplied suspense until the final moments when the Buffs added frosting after Ne-braska failed to register the tying touchdown, despite two good chances. Speedster Teddy Woods’ kickoff return, plus Nebraska’s inability to move the ball in key situations against a strong Buff line, settled the issue—but not until the final quarter. 10 yard touchdown in the final seconds, h i s effort wasn’t needed. .All Colorado needed was supplied the second quarter by a 20 year old junior halfback. Nebraksa, after spotting the Buffs 6 points, took advantage of a fumbled punt and marched to the tving TD with 2:30 left in the half.

Teddy Woods, a 6-0 187-pound­ er, gathered in Archie Cobb’s kickoff on the Buff 5 and sped 95 yards to stun the Cornhus­ kers. Woods was a member of the 1960 .American Olympic team’, but he never ran at Rome because Glen Davis was given his spot on the 1.600 meter relay team. But run he did this day, moving to the 30 where Don Fricke knocked him off balance. But Woods regained his feet and only had Husker John Faiman between him and the goal line. Faiman made a vain effort at midfield and Woods changed from halfback to sprinter, easily outdistaming Husker pursuers. That made it 12-6, good enough for a 3rd straight Big 8 win and a 4-1 season record. But frustrating as Woods’ Birr IS *-20 3 S-38 0 . 40 Tfxas 12 140 103 5-12 2 3-34 4 4« , , .

Houston '-4^ — .A second unit headed by Alvin Hartman did most of the damage Saturday night as the .surprising but alert Rice Owls ground out a second period touchdown for a 7-0 Southwest Conference victory over the University of Texas. .An overflow crowd of 73,000 saw the Owls maintain their perfect conference record with ball control and an alert defense that intercepted 3 passes and pounced on 4 Longhorn fumbles. The 3rd ’ interception came with less than two minuses to play as Max Webb gathered in a Mike Cotton pass in the end zone after the Steers had driven 70 yards to the Rice 7 on their most serious threat of the Hight. Hartman’s unit was denied a score after driving 79 yards to the Texas 1 in the second period. But the long surge setup the lone toucliaown. Texas took over but on the 4th play James Saxton covered for the Owls on the Steer 24. Billy Cox, a rophomore, moved around right end on a keei>er 7 plays later for the touchdown. Webb converted.

While Woods gave Colorado life, Nebraska had two fine chances in the 4lh quarter to produce the tying touchdown and possibly t h e winning point, The Cornhuskers w'ere unable to come up with the key offensive play. On the first play of the final period, NU’s Gene Ward intcrcepti*d a Gale Weidner pass on the Nebraska 38 and returned it 10 yards. With Thunder Thornton doing most of the work, the Huskers moved to the Colorado 30 in 6 plays. But quarterback Pat Fischer missed a 4th down try for a first down by a half foot. Nebraska made a fine stand against the Buffs at the .N'U 3) a few minutes later, halting a 4th down plunge by 3rd stringer Dave Rife, top gainer of the day. The Huskers took over on their own 30, with 8 big minutes left on the clock. Some 4.800 Nebraskans among the throng urged a tide turning drive, and for a while it looked like the Huskers might oblige. Get Going Fischer hit Clay White with a 7 yard jump [lass to get things rolling, and Thornton came through with the first down at the NF 41 on a 4th down gamble.
