r é.- t Contact Begins For NC By VIRGIL PARKER “It was a pretty sharp workout for the first scrimmage of the fall,” University of Nebraska football coach Bob Devaney said after the Big Red had their initial head-banging session Wednesday morning. “We’ve been worse in other seasons at the outset,” the Husker boss said, but then he tempered the enthusiasm by adding, ”I sure wouldn’t want to play a game today, however.” Devaney said the scrimmage was “typical”, in that there were several outstanding plays by both the offense and defense, but that “neither unit showed enough consistency.” Devaney thought the first offense moved the ball quite well against the second defense, whereas the second unit offense didn’t go anywhere against the first defensive group. The two first teams didn’t face each other during the initial day cf contact. “Unless we have made a mistake in the evaluation of our personel, that’s the way it should be,” Devaney explained. “The first offense should move well, while we’d be disappointed if the second group gained much against the Black Shirts (first defense).” Quarterbacks Van Brownson, Jerry Tagge and Dave Humm all came in for praise. “All three threw the ball pretty well,” Devaney said, “although Jerry had one intercepted and Humm had two of them picked off.” Jim Anderson made a .sensational diving interception of one Humm aerial. Joe Blahak drew special comment for his grab of another. Bill Kosch made the defensive theft of one Tagge toss. “The pass protection was pretty good,” Devaney noted. “But we didn't generate much of a running game. Of course v\ e passed a greater percentage of the time than we would in normal game conditions.” The failure of the running attack was due to the outstanding play of defensive middle guards Rich Glover and Monte Johnson, Devaney said. “Our centers couldn’t handle them,” he explained, “and if we don’t block the middle guard the running play just isn’t going anywhere.” Brownson opened the scrimmage session with the longest gainer of the day w^hen he hit tight end Jerry List for a 40- yard bomb. The biggest ground gainer for the tirst unit came on a Brownson keeper, although the next time he tried the same play, linebacker Bruce Hauge and end John Hyland crunched him simultaneously with a bruising tackle for a loss. Tagge and Humm alternated with the second group against the Black Shirts. Tagge hit fullback Bill Olds over the middle for one big gain and was on target to Glen Garson for what would have been another, but the toss was dropped. He wound up his performance with three straight completions on sideline patterns. Humm suffered his two interceptions when he first took over, but recovered to complete four in a row, mixed around 20 and 11-guard gainers on keeper plays. Records Tumbling To Hammerin’ Hank UP! TELEPHOTO Although California’s Mickey Rivers beat this throw, Washington’s Frank Howard shows how much effort a first baseman can give. By Associated Press Just about every time Hank Aaron plays, it seems that he breaks a record. It seems that way becau^ he does. Aaron, who passed Ty Cobb on the all-time list of total bases Monday, barged by Tris Speaker Tuesday night in career runs scored as he helped the Atlanta Braves beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 15-5. “Records just mean that I’ve been playing a long time,” said Aaron, whose 37th homer of the year produced his 1,882nd iifetime run and placed him in sixth place. Aiming at 50? And he has his sharp hitting eye on more production. “I said before the season I’d like to hit 40 homers,” said Aaron, “but I probably should pass that now.” Does he think he can hit the 50-homer level, something he’s LINCOLN. NEBRASKA WED., AUG. 25, 1971-P.M. PAGE 39 never accomplished in his fabled career. “No, I have no ideas of 50,” said Aaron, modestly.

He noted that horse racing, bingo and lotteries have been incorporated in the Constitution as leginiate gambling enterprises through citizen petition efforts and then approved by the electorate, when it had the chance. Barnett and Sen. George Syas of Omaha were the ones who suggested greyhound fanciers go the initiative route, rather than making another legislative stab. Also: Brother Boy) 112; AAr.

The tour then goes to Oklahoma State Thursday, Oklahoma Friday, Colorado Saturday, Nebraska Monday, Iowa State Tuesday and Missouri next Wednesday. After Tuesday’s practices, most coaches had words of praise for their squads. KU coach Don Fambrough was happy with the work of his defense, saying it “is No. 1 in our minds this year. It was the reason we had trouble last year.” Will Undergo Surgery Two sophomore defensive halfbacks will undergo surgery and may miss the Jayhawk season. The left knee of Denny Lantz of Atlantic, Iowa, will be operated on and Alan McCoy of Shawnee Mission, Kan., needs internal surgery. Kansas State coach Vince Gibson termed the Wildcats’ practice a “typical first scrimmage with a lot of mistakes.” However he said three players, fullback Tim McLane and defensive linemen Dennis Weinhold and Norm Dubois, showed a great deal of improvement over last season. Don Lareau, sophomore linebacker, will be lost about four weeks due to a cracked bone in his ankle. At Stillwater, coach Floyd Gass said the OSU Cowboys’ “physical output was terrific, considering the conditions,” which included a 95-degree temperature. Lauds Keywortli, Davis Tom Bevans moved into the top offensive center spot in the major shuffle at Colorado. Coach Eddie Crowder also liked the running of backs Jon Keyworth and Charlie Davis. Missouri coach A1 Onofrio said, “We are not happy with the polish but then we are just trying to learn everything rij(ht now.” Running backs Mike Fink, Pete Buha and Bruce Berry, and defensive back Lorenzo Brinkley were hobbled with various ailments or injuries, none of which were believed serious.

Backlund’s second shot on the last hole soared over the green, struck a parked car and bounced back into play. He then chipped to about 10 feet from the hole and sank the putt to edge out Juan Elizondo by one stroke. “If that car wouldn’t have been parked there, my ball would’ve gone out of bounds and cost me the tournament,” Backlund figured. The Fremont Golf Club’s parking lot is to the right and behind the 18th green and resident pro A1 Beister said Backlund’s shot was allowable. “As long as the ball strikes an object and bounces back into play, the shot is allowed,” Beister explained. “The car is considered to be the same as the trees which line the sides of most our fairways.” Backlund’s 36-hole total was 139, three-under-par, while Elizondo, Omaha’s Sunset Valley Country Club pro. finished at 140. Both fired par 71s Tuesday over the 5,920- yard course as scores ballooned. Most golfers attributed the inflated scores to the wind and the pressure of winning. “There was only a slight breeze Monday while the wind was pretty stiff today,” Elizondo said. “And of course the pressure of the last day worked against most of the golfers.” Defending champion John Frillman, Omaha’s Happy Hollow pro, finished third at 142 despite an ace on the 117- yard No. 17. First-day leader Matt Zadalis, Omaha’s Spring Lake pro, came in with a 76 and finished fourth at 143.

Giants’ Webster Gets Even More Bad News By Associated Press New York Giants coach Alex Webster, who’s had his share of troubles lately, got some more bad news Tuesday. Ron Johnson, who rushed for 1,027 yards from his halfback position last season, will be sidelined for the remaining three weeks of training camp because of a thigh injury which will require surgery. The injury, a deep bruise on his right thigh, was suffered two months ago when Johnson was playing a pickup basketball game in Ann Arbor, Mich. Some blood which collected within the tissue has not cleared up, so doctors will have to operate to drain it off. Dr. Anthony Pisanti, Giants’ team physician, said Johnson might be ready to play in the team’s final preseason game, against Pittsburgh Sept. 12. New York opens its regular season against Green Bay one week later. Running Game Newest Worry So Webster, whose team dropped its first three exhibition games and who has watched players — including quarterback Fran Ttarkenton, the key man in the team’s offense — come and go in training camp, now has to worry about his running game, too. Webster cut four players from the squad Tuesday, including veteran Willie Townes, a defensive end. Townes was once a regular on the Dallas Cowboys’ Doomsday Defense, but lost his job to Larry Cole. Another veteran to get the ax was safety Goldie Sellers, who was dropped by Houston. The Oilers also signed much- travelled place kicker Booth Lustig and dealt defensive lineman Russell Price to Miami for a draft choice. The Los Angeles Rams cut rookie wide receiver Andy (Rabbit) Vataha, a 170-pounder who was Jim Plunkett’s favorite target at Stanford. Nebraska City — The waters of the mighty Missouri will come alive Sunday as the river hosts the sixth annual Lewis & Clark championship canoe race. The race will begin at 9 a.m. at the state recreation area here and conclude thirty miles downstream at the Brownville state recreation area. “The race is a tremendous event. There’ll be canoeists from Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska,” Allan Maybee, originator of the race, said. The regatta also is expected to draw contestants from Missouri, South Dakota, Illinois, Minnesota and other states, according to Maybee, who notes that contestants “have come from as far away as Chicago and Norman, Okla., in the past.” “This is the only race in the country that hosts a three-state (Nebraska, Kansas and Iowa) championship at one time,” Maybee said. “It’s a championship race, but it’s not a professional race. There will be divisions for women, mixed couples, boys and three classes for men according to their experience.” A representative from the Nebraska Game Commission will be on hand to enforce boating regulations, and the Lincoln Coast Guard flotilla will have four power launches patrolling the race to ensure safety for all contestants. The U.S. Coast Guard office in St. Louis has approved the event, sponsored by the Midwest Canoe Association, and has notified all ports on the Missouri River that canoes will be out “in force” Sunday. Maybee indicated that the race is not only a good participation sport, but also seems to draw considerable spectator interest. Awards will be given to all participants, he added. Interested persons or teams are asked to contact Maybee at 3019 South 44th St. in Lincoln. San Francisco Giants trimmed the New York Mets 3-2. American League scores: Milwaukee 6, Oeveland 5; Minnesota 3, Detroit 1; Baltimore 1, Chicago 0; Kansas City 5, Boston 4 in 13 innings; New York 1, Oakland 0 and California 2, Washington 1. Among his varied accomplishments since he joined the major leagues with the old Milwaukee Braves in 1954, the 37-year-old Aaron has hit 629 home runs. That puts him in third place behind San Francisco’s Willie Mays, who has 644, and Babe Ruth, who had 714. How does Hammerin’ Hank feel every time they flash his record-breaking deeds on the scoreboard at Atlanta Stadium? “I don’t mind—as long they don’t flash my age, quipped Aaron. Has 96 RBI’s Actually, Aaron has been tired of late although you’d never know it by his long-ball pace of five homers in six days that’s boosted his RBI to 96 and his batting average to .322. “Sometimes you just get hot,” said Aaron, “but I was feeling tired before we came home. I got a couple of days rest and my legs feel much better now.” Mike Lum and Marty Perez joined Aaron in their hitting party that produced 21 safeties against the Pirates* shellshocked pitching staff. Lum drilled a three-run homer in the second inning and Perez belted a three-run blow in the third before Aaron unloaded in the fourth. The Cardinals took advantage of Pittsburgh’s loss to move up to a tie with Chicago for second place in the National League East, five games behind the front-running Pirates. Reliever Al Santorini came in with the potential tying run on third base in the ninth inning and threw a double-play pitch to Doug Rader to end the game. The clutch relief job saved the game for rookie Reggie Cleveland. Three Doubles Pete Rose ripped three doubles and scored three runs and Woody Woodward slammed three hits to lead Cincinnati over Chicago. Willie Davis slugged five hits, including a three-run triple, as Los Angeles stopped Montreal’s eight-game winning streak. Ed Acosta, a 27-year-old right-hander making his first major league start, hurled an eight-hit shutout for San Diego. Acosta, who was traded to the Padres Aug. 16, hurled three innings while with Pittsburgh last season for his only previous major league experience. Juan Marichal pitched a five-hitter and Bobby Bonds crashed his 25th homer to power San Francisco over New York. Bonds’ two-run shot gave Marichal the lead in the fourth inning and the Giants’ star right-hander was in command thereafter. Wednesday Baseball ~ V. Boston (KLIN).
