Mix-up at Nebraska GRID TICKETS SHOW TWO GAMES ON SAME DAY SPORTS c«;vri, , ind TrlBun* Comnnv vri«M, i»«, DM Mttnn Riniftr TrlBun ***** WIREPHOTO (AP) JIM PBTTINOER We all know how far Nebraska's football program has come in recent years. There are capacity crowds for every home game in Lincoln. There are bowl games. There are national championships. But this is a new one. Now t li e C o rnhuskers seem willing to play both Iowa State and 0 k 1 a- homa on the same Saturday afternoon. Well, that's what the tick- fits say anyway. That's right, tickets issued by Nebraska for the Iowa State game — all 76,000 of them — have a Nov. 22 date on them. Trouble is, Nov. 22 is the day the Huskers are supposed to end their regular season at Oklahoma. The Iowa State game at Lincoln is Nov. 15. "I made-a-mistake T ^~Jim- Pittenger said tersely from Lincoln Thursday. PITTENGER IS Nebraska's assistant athletic director and ticket manager. He doesn't make mistakes often. In fact, he thinks this is the first time the wrong date has ever been printed on a Nebraska ticket in his years at the school. "It was a copy error," Pittenger explained. "The printer sent a proof of the tickets to our office, we proof-read it and sent it back. "No one noticed that the wrong date was on the Iowa REGISTER REPORT By Ron Maly State tickets until a girl in our office spotted it. There are no mistakes on tickets to any other home games. "We didn't print tickets to the Oklahoma game, of course, because it's in Norman." WEST STADIUM-lOtMt fa*™ Sfr. NOV. 22, 1W5 • WOMK NO »IW)NO - H016 »OU« OWN TICKtr tUsi Mi u>> T! ' 1> ]u»!;u-l mmm MEMORIAL STADIUM 2 Erroneous Ducat A Future Collector's Item? PITTENGER SAID it was impossible to try to correct the mistake after the error was detected. "Some of the tickets had already been mailed to fans," he explained. Dan Alford, Iowa State's ticket manager, said he wasn't even aware the wrong date was on the tickets. "Oh, God, we're not playing them on Nov. 22, are we?" was Alford's first reaction from Ames. Alford was perhaps fearful Iowa State had made a scheduling error, since Nov. 22 is when the Cyclones are supposed to be at Oklahoma State. "A mistake like that can happen," Alford said, "but I imagine Pittenger is a little embarrassed about it. "We did have it happen with tickets to a basketball game once, but only because the date of the game was changed later." YOU CAN SEE it happen now. Earle Bruce, the Iowa State coach, won't need to paste any newspaper stories on the locker-room wall to fire up his players the day the Cyclones play at Lincoln. He can merely paste up a ticket to the game (if he can find one) with this message attached: "Boys, the Nebraska players are in the locker room flipping a coin to see if they want to play you before or after Oklahoma this afternoon." Hang onto your ticket stubs, sports fans. Someday they may be collectors' items. No hex nor hate-Gullett just keeps beating Cards DON GULLETT -CINCINNATI, OHIO (AP) Don Guilett said he has no he> nor holds no hate for St. Louis He just enjoys winning. "I have no reason for my success against them. It's just one of those things," said the Cincinnati left-h a n d e r Thursday night after firing a f i v e-hitter to stop the Cards for the fourth straight time this season, 4-0. Gullett owns a 13-3 dominance over the Cardinals and has not allowed St. Louis a run in the last 14 innings. Idled nine weeks with a broken thumb, he has returned in stunning style, firing his first shutout since May 31. "As far as endurance, I'm pretty well there," said Gullett (11-3). "But my arm's not 100 per cent. I still have a little way to go." He got help from light-hitting Darrcli Chancy, who cracked a solo homer in the fifth for the only run the Reds needed. With the loss, the Cards fell 3'/ 2 games back of idle Pittsburgh in the National League Eastern Division. Chancy crashed his homer leading off. the fifth inning against Mike Garman (3-5). Garman had replaced starter Bob Forsch, who left after four , SB—Bench. .Forsch arman (L.3-5) rabosky j|len k ?W,ll-3) innings because of torn skin on . H -£T 2 7& A-' the middle finger of his pitching hand. Forsch Had checked the Reds on one hit, by Chancy, before leaving. Cincinnati erupted for three insurance runs in the seventh. Pete Rose beat out a two-out infield chopper and scored on Ken Griffey's triple. Griffey then came in on a wild pitch by Al Hrabosky. After walks to Joe Morgan and Tony Perez, Johnny Bench delivered a run-scoring single. Gullett's shutout lowered his earned-run average to 2.07, best on the Reds' staff. Morgan added three walks to his league-leading total and now has 108. Perez failed to connect in three official trips to the plate and had his hitting streak topped at 18 games. The loss was the Cardinals' entb in the last 30 games. They have yet to beat the Reds at Riverfront Stadium this sea- ion. sr LOUIS rock If I endei avis rf CINCINNATI ab r h bl ab r h bl 4010 Rose 3b 4110 'Iffey rf 3111 - 1100 National tournament opens today Tonight's Games FIRST ROUND « p.m. — E.R.v. strikers (Chicago, II, Mich) °'' Ve Elec1rlc ' B enton Harbo „/ i?i1Jv ^m C 2 C L',' S f a ,*? .(Marshalltown Minn ) (Columbia Helflht 8 p.m. — Saxon Lodge (Gsrv, Ind ) v Bin Banio Bruins (Chlcaao, III.)! .A. p i m - ~ Sammy D's (Mlnneapoli 1 Minn.) vs. Masco Machine (Clevelahi By PHIL MALY Staff Writer MARSHALLTOWN, IA.

WP-Hrabos- GOPHERS HIT WITH CHARGE ST. PAUL, MINN. (AP) Minnesota's huma.n rights commissioner Thursday charged the University of Minnesota with race discrimination in its selection of a new basketball coach. William Wilson said his charge was based on "what appears to be reliable information" that Bill Cofield, an assistant coach at Virginia, was passed over for the Minnesota job because he is black. The Board of Regents is expected to give formal approval Sept. 12 to the appointment of Jim Dutcher to replace Bill Musselman as head basketball coach. Dutcher. who is white, was ,'j.ssistant coach at Michigan the past three years. The commissioner indicated Cofield was not contacted fore the charge was filed. mation provided by persons close to the selection process who "felt they would be unduly harassed" if they filed charges themselves. Stanley Kegler, a university vice president who headed a committee that interviewed candidates, confirmed that Cofield had the most support among its members. The committee chose three candidates to recommend to Athletic Director Paul Giel. Kegler said all six members voted for Cofield, five voted for Dutcher and four voted for Ron E k k e r , a former assistant coach at the university who now is at West Texas State. Under the selection process, Giel was free to mate the final | MANKATO , MINN.
