Also presented was the NCAA track championship trophy to Bill Easton, of the Jayhawk track team. Sorry, Lady First rhubarb of the day came when a gal reporter for the Hutchinson. Kans., News tried to gain a seat in the press box. The paper has been trying to breakdown the rule of the Football Writers Association of A m e r i- ican that prohibits lady scribes. Don Pierce, ahtletic publicity director at Kansas gave her a reser\’ed seat in the stadium and a program but she failed to gain admission to the pressbox. Woiv! Kansas home uniforms are robin’s egg blue shirts and pants. Lawrence, Kans. — Jack Mitchell, who had just belabored one of his former coaches at Oklahoma, made a stern defense of the Nebraska team that his Jayhawkers had flattened. Praising the Huskers as being just a “hair away from being a good team,” .Mitchell said Nebraska’s coaching staff is sound. But he echoed Bill Jennings words of earlier in the week, saying: “I don’t see how they could play at all with ail that turmoil outside t h e coaching staff — that outside griping and writing with hardly ever a pat on the back. “Nebraska looked like it was all shook up by that outside criticism.” To further his kindness to Nebraska, he declared: “This is by far the best football game for Kansas since I’ve been here. “We have improved a little every ball game. We haven’t gone d ownhill as some people believe. When you play schools like Syracuse and Iowa you are bound to look bad at times.” Mitchell, who like Jennings shifted his left halfback to quarterback at the start of the season, praised his signal caller John Hadl. “He had a great day passing today but he has been improving every game and just more consistent now. “When your team improves a little eac*h ball game, you reach a peak. We may have reached our peak today. If that is so we will go downhill. “As happy as we are now, we could still have a catastrophic season if we lose our last two games • • • The Jays wind up with Colorado and Missouri. Mitchell had special priase for Hugh Smith, the big halfback from Guyon, Okla., who flunked out of the University of Nebraska two years ago and transferred to Kansas. “Smith played a real good game,” Mitchell said. “This was his first chance to play a lot and he had more confidence. You can’t praise him enough for his job today.” Smith filled in for injured Bert Coan. Mitchell revealed that he knew before the game that his kids were ready for the game. “You could see it in the s q u a d.” he said. “They were mentally up for tliis one. We were as high today as we have been ail q 4Í im 4 season. I just hope we can maintain this mental peak for the next two ball games.” The former Sooner quarterback also praised one of the Huskers. Of Pat Fischer he said: “There’s no question about Fischer. He’s one of the greatest defense backs in college football. He’s probably one of the best backs we will see in a long time.” With those words of praise for his club and backing for his close personal friend. Bill Jennings, Mitchell called it a very successful day. Big Teams Round Out Prep Schedule The big teams just about have Nebraska’s football action all to themselves this week. Those big guys, the ones that field 11 players at once, dominate the last week of the regular prep football schedule. Only a few 8-man games will be played. Two of these are playoffs involving some Gene Littler 1st At Half Coronado. Calif. .?) — Gene Lit tier of PJ Cajon, Calif, fini hing before the wind came up, stroked into t h e half-way lead of the $21,000 Coronado Pro-Am Golf I Tournament Saturday, i Littler shot a 68, 4-under par, for a 36-hole total of 134, two strokes ahead of Bud Holscher of the L a k e s i d c Country Club at Los Angeles, who had a 66.

By Dick Becker Memorial Stadium —Lawrence, Kans—Taking a cue from head coach Bill Jennings, ‘ Nebraska’s dejected Gridders had very little to say outside of the usual platitudes in their dressing rooms Saturday. Here was a team fired up by outside criticisms during the week — but a team that couldn’t get over the big hump when handed the chance in the first quarter. After that everything went wrong. Nobody wanted to discuss the argument that occurred in the Husker huddle in the 3rd quarter. It appeared that end Don Purcell and quarterback Pat Fischer had words and then co- captain Don Fricke talked to Fischer off to the side as the Huskers took time out to get organized after two plays had been smeared for losses. Purcell said that somebody had been talking in the huddle and “I told him (the player) not to argue in the huddle.” Then as he got the impact of the question, Purcell said stoutly: “There’s no dissention on this team — 1 can tell vou that,” Fischer had nothing to say about the incident. His only declaration w'as “they beat us. They’re 31 points better than we are.” Fricke had nothing to say about it, either. You could tell these players thought they were in for a more pleasant afternoon. Some of them went up to Jennings individually for quiet words. Some appeared to be choking back tears. .About the only person who attempted to say any- I thing for the kids was a • Lincoln theatre owner who hosts the players every Friday night before home games at his movie. “I can see where they would get down” he declared “Do you know there wasn’t a single person other than coaches and players’ wives to see the team off when they left Lincoln Friday. .Not a single student showed up.” But the players w'eren’t alibing. “They’ve probably got StatÍ8tio8 the best backs we’ve seen,” said Fricke. “They were all pretty impressive, “declared Bill (Thunder) Thornton. “They were so fast.” How did Thunder like his trial at right halfback? “I’d never played it before, but it’s all right, just so I get to carry the ball,” Co-captain Ron McDole commented only that Kansas was “as tough as the rest.” End Jim Huge, returned to action for the first time since the Texas game said his leg “felt fine and didn’t bother me at all.” Big Archie Cobb, who got his first bad snap from center of the season, was asked how he liked to run mim with the ball. “I don’t believe I’d trade with them (the backs)” he decalred. Guard Darrell Cooper felt that Kansas “has got a real good line out they don’t stack up to Missouri.” The trainers reported no new injuries although tackle Gary Toogood was not suited up due to a groin injury suffered last week in practice. The team ate in Topeka before its bus trip back to Lincoln. Kansas Gets Hot ' * In Rout of Huskers Continued from Page ID often, the Scarlets couldn’t conjure up any scoring magic—although they tried. Thunder Thortnon was inserted a right halfback, with Noel Martin at fullback. Thornton who carried 3 straight times — just missed the first down on a 4th down plunge at the Kansas 34, and NU never got another chance. After holding the Jayhawks and getting the ball via a punt on their own 24, t he Huskers fumbled two straight times.' KU’s Larry Lousch fell on I the second bobble and plays I later John Suder kicked a 31- yard field goal. It was the Jayhawk senior’s 7th field goal of his ca! reer and gave him a new school record.

Then a bad pass from center — the ball bounced on the ground — prevented .Archie Cobb from getting off i a 4th dov/n punt and the I Javhawks had the ball on the 'NU 29. ' Momentarily stalled by a holding penalty, Hadl tossed i 3 straight passes for 23 yards ! and McClinton got a first down on the NU 13. Seven plays later — after a couple of fine stints by Smith — Doyle Schick drove over from the one with only 48 seconds gone in the second quarter, Suder’s kick made it 10-0, a great sufficiency as it turned out. With that bulge, the Jay- hawks rolled at will throughout the long afternoon. Kansas wouni! up the second quarter by marching 8.3 yards in 18 plays to score with 2:26 left in the half. Hadl’s 3 passes, some good running by Smith — including an 11-yard dash off a double reverse — and some key sprints by McClinton set up the tally. Hadl faked to Schick and dashed around right end for the score and Suder’s t o e gave the Jayhawks a 17-0 margin at the rest period. Nebraska opened the second half by losing 12 yards in two plays, took time out while co-captain Don Fricke calmed down Fischer who had stormed out of the huddle after and apparent heated exchange with another Husker, and then punted. Kansas took over on Its own 43 and took only 11 plays to score aga* . .\ 10-yard sneak by Had! and a pass from Hadl to Sam Simpson were the h:g gainers enroiile to the NU 7. Smith and Schick got to the one, from where Iladi jumped up and lobbed a pass to Simpson ail alone in the end zone. Suder’s kick made it 24-0 and Mitchell took pity, benching his first-springers with 7:01 left in the 3rd quarter. Late in the quarter, Kansas reserves drove 62 yards in 12 plays ■— the big one was a 25-yard pass from Roger McFarland to Jim Marshall —to score with 13; 15 left in the game. Third-team fullback Fred Rukaty bowled over two Huskers on a sweep from the two for the touchdown and Suder added his 7th point of the day. Nebraska flurried mildly in the final minute w-hen Faiman hit iJicK McDaniel with an 8-yard pass and Noel Martin with a 1.3-yard pitch, but the Jayhawks smothered two final aerial tries. .A fine Kansas team had simply clobbered a demoralized Nebraska team with ease.

Northeast upped its record to 5-.3-1 with the victory over the ponderous Vikings, and host powerful Omaha Central next week. It was the second win of the weekend for a Capital City team in Omaha, and was achieved with much the same dominance that Lincoln High held its 27-7 win over Omaha Benson Friday. The Rockets held North to only 18 yards rushing, and 53 more on two pass completions. But 3 interceptions by NFI helped stymie North. Gary Muelhausen’s 39-yard run on the first play after NE recovered a North fumble provided the win margin in the 3rd quarter. Curt Kjner added an insurance marker on a 5-yard run late in the period. A 29-yard pass by Dave Lebsack to Skip Peterson set up the TD. Lebsack led NE to its first score in the second quarter, getting off a 17-yard run during the 56-yard drive. He also ran a keeper for the final 11 yards. North got its only touchdown with 44 seconds left in the first half. A 43-yard Rookie Taylor-to-John Burger pass play gained to the 10, and Burger ran to the 1 foot point on the next play. Fullback Dennis Davey plunged in from there.
