12 Lincoln Eveninj; Journal & Nebraska State Journal Monday, Oct. 19. 1970—P.M. I r May Be Wrong By Don ForsytJie Journal Sports Editor Anglers Getting o Prizes Quarterback Helps Eagles Snap Slump ^ Turman *s Return Revitalizes Chadron If there’s a panic button in the Nebraska football camp it hasn’t been found yet. Chances are it won’t be if it wasn’t punched at Kansas Fall turns the thoughts of Saturday. When a team puts 20 points on the board in less many sportsmen to hunting, but than seven minutes there’s good reason to get rattled. Split end Guy Ingles, who had a big hand in easing the pressure on the Cornhuskers when he hauled in an 80-yard touchdown pitch on the first play after Kansas had gone ahead, 20-10, says the Cornhuskers have the winning “feeling.” “It was something which came at the end of last year,” explains Guy, “and it’s coming quicker this year. There was Just a feeling at halftime that you knew you were going to do okay.” Mutual Trust liiiportaiit Ingles says one of the factors is that the offense has confidence in the defense. “The way the defense has played whole I have as much confidence in these guys as as a the Black Shirts at the end of last year,” he says. That’s one part of it. The same goes on the other of the street, too. The defense has confidence in the offense. side It all adds up to one of the healthiest team situations the Cornhuskers have had. In seasons past there have been cases when the feeling between the offense and defense borderd on rivalry. No doubt about it, the Cornhusker offense and defense will have to lean upon one another a few more times before the Big Eight season is completed. Do Y ou Play Like You Practice? Kansas coach Pepper Rodgers, on the eve of the Nebraska game, indicated that the Jayhawks had enjoyed a good week of practice. “But I’m not sure what it means,” he claimed. “A pro golfer will hit the ball great off the practice tee and do it out on the course. A guy like me will hit it great off the practice tee and kick it around the course.” The Jayhawks landed somewhere between the two illustrations. They certainly didn’t “kick it around,” on offense. As most observers thought before the season started, the Jayhawks have a lot of ammunition In their offensive platoon. But the Kansas defense isn’t good enough to get the job done without a break or two. The Cornhuskers had some penalties, but lost no fumbles and had no passes intercepted. Look what Colorado might have done Saturday had it had similar avoidance of mistakes. The Buffs had 24 first downs to 12 for Oklahoma and rolled up 359 yards on the ground. But they lost three fumbles and had four passes intercepted. Take those away and the Sooners might not have even been in the game. Nebraska Vacations i Await Two Families Families from Michigan and Louisiana are looking forward to “perfect vacations in Nebraska, thanks to the Game and Parks Commission and Discover American Travel Organizations. The trips, won in a September drawing by Mrs. A. Stedry of Bridgeport, Mich., and Mrs. David Banning of New Orleans, La., were arranged by the Game Commission. The two Nebraska vacations were then given away by DATO in its “100 Perfect Vacations” promotion, a nationwide campaign to convince Americans to see more of their own country. Mrs. Lanning was drawn for the 14-day Nebraska “Old West Tour,” which focuses on the NEBRASKAland Days celebration and Buffalo Bill Rodeo in North Platte, courtesy of the North Platte Chamber of Commerce. Next on their itinerary will be Ogallala, with three days of fishing, swimming, boating, and water skiing on Lake McConaughy and a tour of Front Street, all courtesy of the Ogallala Chamber of Commerce. The Wildcat Hills and Scotts Bluff National Monument will follow, with arrangements handled by the Scottsbluff Chamber of Commerce. Their tour of the state will finish with a six-day stay at Fort Robinson in the historic and scenic Pine Ridge, compliments of the Game and Parks Commission, the state’s official travel agency. Mrs. Stedry and family will also see much of Nebraska, but with a slightly different twist. Starting with two days in Omaha as guests of the Omaha Chamber of Commerce, the Stedrys’ tour will take them to Bad Luck Slays With Blue Flame Wendover, Utah (^The Blue Flame streamliner now holds a handful of speed records but the most important one—the world land speed record—continues just out of reach. For the second time in four days, the rocket-powered racer Sunday became the fastest vehicle ever to run over the Bonneville Salt Flats course one way. But a fueling problem thwarted efforts to make the return run needed to establish an official record and the 621 miles per hour clocking was washed out. Then, with darkness gathering over the 10-mile long race track, the natural-gas powered rocket car made two more runs but failed by just four m.p.h. to break the land speed record. the State Capitol and Sheldon Art Gallery in Lincoln as guests of Ramada Inn, then to Beatrice to visit the nation’s first homestead, courtesy of the Beatrice Chamber of Commerce. A comfortable evening’s stop in Auburn will be assured by the Palmer House Motel and Tiny’s Cafe. A trek west highlights the rest of the trip, with stops at Grand Island, Kearney, North Platte, and Ogallala, Crawford and Chadron are the final destinations of the Stedrys’ vacation, with accommodations at Fort Robinson State Park, Three Nebraska families will also take off on DATO “Perfect Vacations” to other parts of the country. Daniel R. West and family of Alliance garnered a six-day stay in Iowa and the Robert A. Butterys of Omaha will take a 14-day tour of Texas. Irene Mason of McCook and family will take a 15-day fly- drive adventure through Old- West Trail country. dyed-int-he-wool anglers are still out on Nebraska’s waters and many are hauling in prize catches.

By STEVE GUSS They can strike up the band at Chadron again, the director is back. Eagles coach Bill Giles welcomed the return this past weekend of the school’s all-time passing leader, quarterback Tim Turman. “We didn’t play him too much (2-7 throwing and one touchdown), but he gives us a lift and direction again,” noted Giles who is unaccustomed to losing after 8-1 and 6-3 seasons in 1968 and 1969 respectively. Turman led Chadron to a pair of early victories, then broke a small bone in his wrist. A cast was placed on his arm and he was supposedly shelved for the year. The Eagles promptly lost three straight including a pair of key Nebraska College Con- Scrimmage Scheduled For Frosh Nebraska’s freshman football team, fresh from a 35-6 triumph over McCook Junior College, won’t put their 2-0 record on the line until Nov. 6 at Iowa State. But Jim Ross’ club won’t be without competition in the interim. The freshmen will scrimmage the varsity “Commandos” Friday in a game which has been designated as the Commandos’ homecoming contest. The individual statistics from the Saturday night McCook game: Rushing ference games to Kearney and Wayne. Then radiologists decided the break wasn’t that serious or wasn’t there at all and the 6-0,' 175-pounder senior, who threw for 1,013 yards last year despite missing three games with an injury, was pronounced fit for - South Dakota Tech Saturday. Though he didn’t play much, the spark was there and Chadron blanked the Hardrockers, 27-0, thanks- mainly to the running of 6-0, 180-pound tailback Stan Labertew. Unherplded among a group of hard-running backs in the state this year like Kearney’s John Makovicka, Sam Singleton at Wayne, Mike Sallier of Doane and Omaha’s Phil Wise, Labertew gets the job done. He rushed for 185 yards on only seven carries, scoring on « Kentucky 121, Virginia 103 , Floridians 125, Indiana 134, Boston 133, No. Yds.

Mustangs Lose To San Antonio Omaha Lf)—The Omaha Mustangs gave the ball away five times on interceptions here Saturday night and were defeated 31-14 by San Antonio in a Continental Football League contest. A crowd of 5,860 watched the Texans build a 24-0 lead by the end of the third quarter. Omaha quarterback Bob Churchich had four of his passes stolen in the first half. Girls’ Swiiiimiiig Lincoln High 41, East 36 “They shut-off our inside game so we went to long runs on the outside off pitchouts,” explained Giles. Directing much of Chadron’s attack as he did in Turman’s absence, was 5-11, 160-pound quarterback Jack Gutierrez. The sophomore will prove to be valuable in years to come. Chadron also has the premier pass catcher not only» in the state college ranks, but in the nation in 6-0, lOO-pmund flanker Rick Watson. Going into the South Dakota game, the Bridgeport ace had snared 37 passes for 655 yards ranking him third in the country. Giles, lost five starters with injuries before the 1970 season began, also praised 6-2, 225-pound defensive end Mike Parks and 5-11, 210-pound offensive guard Bill Kuester for their play to date. Chadron, which has Peru, Mayville, N.D. and Black Hills, S.D., left on the schedule which could give Giles another winning campaign, did not play badly even in its three losses. “Our kids played well against Kearney (a 27-23 defeat), but with Makovicka, they control the ball so much on the ground and don’t have to rely on passing,” says Giles. “We also played well against Wayne (a 14-7 loss), and even with our regular quarterback, the outcome wouldn’t have been different. Against Hiram Scott (a 42-6 thumping), our defense made six costly mistakes,” the coach added. The Standings NIAC Conferenc« All Games W L T Pet. W L T Pet.
