l(j 1 iiiLolii Muu Stale Jo.uiul Tuesday, Oct. 20, 1 Games Loom xo'offer In Smaller Prep Ranks By VIRGa PARKER Prep Sports Writer Hebron, Hildreth and Mead continue to pace the high school i football ratings for the Class and eight-man divisions this week. But some crucial tests are on tap for Friday that could cause some major changes within each classification nejd week. The biggest game of them all will be at Wymore where the No. 4 ranked Southern Raiders host Class leader Hebron.

It will be the fourth severe test for Hebron in as many weeks. Coach Ted Bears started the string against Class Central City. It resulted in a 20-12 victory over a team that has highly-regarded Class Seward its only setback. Then came Geneva, at the time the No. 2 rated Class eleven.

After disposing of the Tigers, 26-12, Hebron went up to Class again last week, squeezing out a 14-8 triumph over Superior. Now Southern. Coach Nebraska Prep Ratings By Virgil Parker Class Cloud (6-0) (5-1) (6-0) 9-SheIton (6-0) (4-2) 1-Hebron (6-0) (6-0) Bergan (5-1) (5-1) (6-0) Comment Lots of shuffling and one new team from a week ago. A big group of challengers waiting in the wings. Platteview, Sandy Creek, St.

Mary, Dodge, Arnold, Scribner, Coleridge, and North Loup Scotia lead the list. Class (6-0) St. Ann (6-0) St. Agnes (5-0-1) (6-0) wood (5-1) (5-1) (5-1) (4-1-1) (5-0-1) le-Wolbach (5-1) tumbles to ninth in the biggest change from a week ago. Bruning replaces Polk, though the latter along with Lyrnan and Falls City Sacred Heart are the closest challengers to the top 10.

Eiglil-Maii 1-Mead (5-0) 2-OdelI (5-0) (6-0) 4-WheatIand (6-0) 5-Shelby (6-0) (5-0) (5-1) Valley (6-0) (6-0) (6-0) seven teams in the same order as a week ago. Trenton replaces Cedar Bluffs, Adams slips to 10th. Stapleton, Humphrey, Willsonville and Giltner threaten the top group. Jerry Raiders have swept to five victories against a single defeat, that at the hands of Class top 10 rated Auburn. Three of the wins have been over Class clubs.

Geneva, fighting to stay in the Class top 10, faces another stiff test. The Tigers opened with four straight victories. Then came losses to Hebron and Seward. Now coach Bruce club faces Wilber, a team that knocked Milford out of the top 10 two weeks ago and played Southern even before losing, 8-6, last week. Class No.

3 ranked Fremont Bergan probably faces the roughest outing. The Knights tackle Class No. 3 rated Omaha Cathedral. The big games this week in Class pit No. 2 Lexington St.

Ann against Class opponent Beaver City, Fort Kearney Conference Overton (No. 6) against Sumner, and defending state champ Wolbach (No. 10) against North Loup Scotia of Class a team which has won its last five in a row. The top eight-man game has No. 2 Odell at No.

10 Adams. Though each division has the same leader, each has one new face this week in the top 10, plus a minor amount or reshuffling among the remaining nine. In Geneva slips to 10th after its second consecutive loss and Shelton replaces Bayard on the list. Lexington St. Ann moved up to second in Class after beating Elwood, now No.

5, and Litchfield slid from second to ninth after suffering a tie. The change in sees Bruning replacing Polk. The eight-man list has the most stability. The top seven are in the same order as a week ago, although Trenton joins the select group as Cedar Bluffs falls from favor.

Coach Bob Devaney said Kansas banged up his defensive unit somewhat last Saturday but he thought everybody would be ready for Oklahoma State except middle guard Ed Periard, who has a pulled groin muscle.

The OSU Cowpokes made good use of the extra week of practice, coach Floyd Gas-s said, and two injured players have made good progress in healing. They are tailback Wayne Hallmark and defensive guard Tim Potts. has been running well in practice, but we know his playing status probably the last Gass said. is in the same Coach Chuck Fairbanks said his Oklahoma Sooners were bruised in their 23-15 victory over Colorado, but all should be able to play against Kansas State this week. Kansas State will have to go without middle guard Joe Col- (fuitt, who suffered a hack injury in the Iowa State game.

flanker. Sonny Yarnell, who play last week, worked out Monday and might see action Saturday. At Kansas, the Jayhawks worked out without Riggins, the big running back; Gary Cooper, offensive guard, and Rich Jones, No. 2 quarterback. Riggins suffered a back injury, Cooper and Jones ankle sprains aigainst Nebraska.

Coach Pepper Rodgers hinted that halfbacks Vince and Jerome Nelloms might see more action against Iowa State this week. Coach Eddie Crowder said his Colorado Buffaloes sustained no serious injuries in their loss to Oklahoma, and should be in top shape for the Missouri game. Two Iowa State regulars were on the sideline Monday. Center Dave Pittman and quarterback Dean Carison have lame knees and are doubtful starters for the Kansas clash. Eric Lowder, Missouri offensive tackle, has decided to drop football the rest of the season because of a bad knee.

He was injured early in the season and hurt the knee again in the Notre Dame game. Lowder, a senior from Kirkwood, will talk with surgeons about a possible operation. John Burns, a junior, probably will take place. Rocket Harriers Triumph Again The Lincoln Northeast Rocket harriers filled the top five places in a cross-country dual with Lincoln High at Pioneer Park over the 1.94 mile course Monday afternoon. Ron Greeno and Cliff Karthauser finished in a two-way tie for first place with a time of 9:44 to help boost the undefeated Rockets to their ninth straight win.

In the reserve meet, Northeast again won, 19-37 as Steve Landenberger took first place with a time of 10:36. 1 Ron Greeno, Cliff Karthauser (tie), 3. Jerry Kirkland, NE, 4. Roger Ems, NE, 5. Bernie Olson, NE, 10:03.

The 19-hoIe tournament had been postponed the weekend of Oct. 10-11 at request so people be drawn away from the World Series, and in hopes it might snow, forcing cancellation.

Class tnclosed Atokad SEPT. oa. 3031 TWO EXACTAS DAIUf grandstand beatad in chilly waather. South Steux City, Nebraska. Post Time; 2:30 PM 1:30 PM next weok Ljseo Liseo isi msbq isi ijseo Trailsmoke By Bob Munger Journal Outdoor Editor To most folks frustration is watching your mother-in-law drive over a cliff in your brand new station wagon.

To those who hunt the 1,500 acres of the Plattsmouth Waterfowl Management Area, it is something entirely different. Frustration is sitting quietly in a goose pit within a half mile of 5,000 geese and not being able to shoot them. It is a necessary evil of the public hunting system that is in effect here. Public hunting means public shooting, and when the public is involved that means people. People stray.

Geese do not. Geese travel to feed, to water, to rest all the things that geese normally do. People do not. Without restraint they wander all over everything, and this is not allowed on the Plattsmouth Waterfowl Management area. Fact of Life The refuge system, per se, receives a lot of criticism.

Almost every duck and goose hunter has heard complaints about the fact that waterfowl are sitting in relative saftey in a zone of quiet while hunters are waiting to kill something. This is a fact of life. like the sun coming up in the morning, or the weather changing in Nebraska. Basically, this breaks down to the fact that hunters are harvesters and game management people are producers. We as hunters want to kill a bunch of game, and the management people are trying to help us do this.

Without a refuge, the ducks and geese yould be over-flying the areas which we hunt. The sloughs, the back water areas, the small lakes. Hunting With Friends It is relatively easy to get sold on an area where you have no competition in hunting, where you know who has shot which goose, where three or four people hunt and know what each hunter has done, with no competition from anyone. This is waterfowl hunting as it should be done. With friends, but alone.

A refuge is a resting place. A spot where waterfowl ran gather, and talk together, and drink water, and gabble about all the places they have visited and all the areas they have seen. Fortunately, however, the Game and Parks Commission has seen fit to allow public hunting here at Plattsmouth, and it is an excellent way to spend a day. It is a chance to watch, and listen to geese all day long. It is frustration.

It is sitting in a pit blind all day long within a half mile of five thousand geese and hoping that some will fly over your blind. And, it is also ecstacy. one of two buffalos, and other said and showed the other end. The idea was to play two rounds, finish the beer and then play a 19th hole, which was determined by a draw from a fish bowl. The winner, a was John Torpey of Spokane, who with a hidden handicap of 12 and after his worst three holes, were deleted (known as the Usk equalizer), netted a 64.

Torpey received a genuine buffalo collar and a promise that the children of Usk would be informed of his feat at the Usk Elementary school, which was closed several years ago.
