Î-INCOIA SI VnVY JorKN Vl, \M) STVH, IM TOIU K 20. 1<H0 THKHF.—R May Be Wron "M day” is an army term meaning the day when mobilisât on takes place. It might be applied to next Saturday, too. because Missouri come* here and the Com- hURkers are suffering the tortures that accompany two .^^traight lickings at the hands of Paul Christman and his mates. They call Paul the Merry Magician. It's a pat name, because as he plays with that football, now you see it and now you don't. Plainly, the hand is quicker than the eye. One of the things that helps Paul most, probably, is his ability to pass without moving his feel. It isn’t necessary for him to take a step forward. He can throw-, just as a catcher pegs to second base. That gives him another fraction of a second to spot a receiver. With the poise which the Merry Magician possesses he takes advantage of things like this. His record against the Com- huskers for the two years indicates h i s efficiency. He has throw-^n 28 again.^t Nebraska, completed 15 of them for a percentage of .535 Nebraska has picked off five and eight have fallen incomplete. Here’s a significant figure: Christman’s 15 passes have resulted in four touchdowms and a grand total of 347 yards in the two years WALTER "BUTCH” LUTHER found the Kansas right end good for three yards on this scamper.
