Masterson Greets 87 ‘Giants ...Plenty of Beef at Thirty Lettermen Report for Drills BY NORRIS ANDERSON. It was Hollywood day in the University of Nebraska football camp Saturday as the heftiest collection of muscle- sn-the-hoof seen in Comhuskerland in many moons strutted before the photographers. Eighty-seven gridders, including 30 lettermen of wartime and pre-war years, answered GOMER JONES TALKS IT UP— Pictured with the new Husker line coach are four of his prospective linemen, Jack Evans of Grand Island, who might be used in the backfield; Bus Pfund of Norfolk; Harold Ansnes, Lincoln, and Carl Samuelson of Grand Island. (Staff Photo.) Puma Bags $1,000 Blue Border The Puma, a 10-year-old bay gelding and the oldest horse in the race, topped off a highly successful fairgrounds campaign by beating out American Oma and Dallas Flash in a photo finish to take the $1,000 Hotel Cornhusker handicap Saturday as the Nebraska State Fair’s 16-day racing session came to a close. Jockey Leon Hall moved The Ppma to the front on the first lap of the one mile and 70 yards event and fought off the challenges of the field in the stretch to win by a head. The Puma, who won three times in five starts at the Lin- ^^coln track, paid $8.40, 4.80. 3.00 and was timed in 1:47 3-5. Second-place American Oma returned $9.00, 5.60 and Dallas Flash paid $3.40. Jack Sparks, 5-1 outsider, ran away with the seven furlong sixth race to set a new Fairground record for the distance. Ridden by D. Barnett, Jack Sparks romped under the wire in 1:24 to clip two-fifths of a second off the old mark set by Jubilate Boy on Aug. 22. The J. Farhart and R. E. Stewart owned horse gave its backers a handsome $14.20 for two while San Loyal, the favorite, and Hard Life finished second and third. • • • A NEW HIGH of $117,175 went thru the mutuel room windows Saturday with $103,470.20 being returned to the bettors. C. L. Sisson’s Hard Life was claimed for the $1,250 price, but the owner refused to turn over his horse and was suspended for the duration of the meeting. The case was turned over to the Nee braska State Racing Commission. Mad Time, who finished second in the fifth event, was claimed by Mrs. Vern Gentry for $600.

Ben Hog^n, golf’s mighty atom, continued to pulverize par Saturday in the second round of the Golden State Open golf tournament, posting a two-under 69 to go with his first round 66. • • • HIS 36-HOLE total of 135 put him two strokes ahead of his nearest competitors, stocky Herman Barron of White Plains, N. Y„ and Jack Gage, surprising San Bernardino, Calif., professional, who tied with 137. Barrow had the day’s best card of 67 over the California Country Club course. Hogan, national PGA champion, slashed out a half-dozen birdies, four of them on the first nine when it appeared he would open an even wider margin on his rivals. The Hershey, Pa., 135 pounder lost some of his wiz- ardy on the bark nine, however, going from 33 to 36. The former Texan increased his first round margin by a stroke. Herman Keiser of Akron, O., who was only one blow behind at the end of 18 holes, slipped back to par 71 to wind up in the fourth spot with a 138 total. • • • GROUPED AT 139 were Tony f’enna, Cincinnati, who shot a 70 to go with his earlier 69, and U. S. Open champion Lloyd Mangrum, Chicago, who posted 69 on top of a first round 70. Clicking for duplicate 70’s again were Jimmy Demaret of Houston, Tex., and long-driving Chick Harbert, Detroit, both totaling 140 for 36 holes. SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y. (A*). John R. Bradley’s favored Blue Border Saturday won the 42nd running of the Hopeful Stakes, closing day feature of Saratoga’s richest meeting. • • • FAVORITE IN the betting off his track performance in the Grand Union Hotel Stakes a week ago, Blue Border held on in a long stretch drive to nose out William Helis’ $29,500 yearling, Cosmic Bomb, and win the same two-year old feature his daddy, Bimelech, captured in 1939. Carrying 112 pounds and piloted by Cuban Abellardo de Lara, Blue Border rattled off the BVi furlongs in 1:17, equal­ ling the track record the swift Boojum chalked up 27 years ago. Cosmic Bomb failed to get the $6,(KIO second money when he was disqualified after a claim of foul. As a result, Mrs. Isabel Dodge Sloane’s Grand Admiral, who finished half a length back of the leaders, was second, with lightly regarded Johnny Dimick, from the barn of A. J. Sackett, taking third money BLUE BORDER returned $5.10, $3.80 and $3.20 to his supporters in the crowd of 23,944 on hand for the card. It was announced the stewards disqualified Cosmic Bomb because his jockey, Shelby Clark of McLeansboro, 111., had “grabbed the saddle cloth” of Blue Border thru the stretch. Clark was suspended indefinitely and the case was referred to the stewards of the jockey club. Nrw York 4, Washington 9. Boston 4. Philadelphia 2. Cleveland 3, Chicago 2. Detroit ll, St. l<ont* 3.

Jack Seizer and Junior Collopy, both ex-Scottsbluff backfield stars and top guns In the 1944 Husker attack were naturals for a picture together. It was old stuff to the pre-war lettermen in camp. Veterans of 1941-42 like halfbacks Hank Reichel, Marv Athey, and Roy Long, center Joe Partington, quarterback Fred Metheny, and ends Ed Nyden and Jack Hazen had charged, grinned and stretched for that birdie before In those wartime days of cellar- subterranean football at the university, the interest sagged too low to merit a full day of flash bulbs and sideline quarterbacking.

Horses from all parts of the county have been pouring on to the fairgrounds to contend for the $2,400 in purses to be offered each day. This is a new all-time high for money given for this type of racing in the middle west. Owners and horses who are on the grounds now are, D. W. Wilson from Iowa who will race four horses, Peter Shippman of Iowa along with Art Berry and Holis Regar, also of Iowa. Phil Had- speth has arrived from Colorado, with three head and B. E. Baker from Kansas will race two. Har ley Bratton from Lawton, Okl will have four horses on the track. All these owners and drivers have been racing on the east or west coast in such places as Santa Anita, Roosevelt Raceway, May wood park and other famed tracks. The fair board has named the following officials: • • • OFFICIAL STARTER will be Fred Ronan of Decorah, la., who has been approved by the United States Trotting association.

Altho he had to retire in the ninth after making a one handed catch of a hot Sam Chapman liner, Bill Zuber pitched and helped bat the Red Sox to 4-2 victory Saturday, Boston’s third in a row over the Philadelphia Athletics. Zuber singled sharply to center field with the bases loaded to score two runs in the Boston three run second inning. The fourth Boston run was Lee Culberson’s third homer of the year into the screen atop the left field fence in the eighth. Ted Williams went hitless and was booed by the crowd in the sixth after he failed to run out a tap to shortstop. Major: Norval Barker, Aurora; Albert Brown. Lincoln; Robert Davis, Milwaukee.

Berg, Rucker In Women's Links Finals “THEY’RE BIG, but awfully green,” was the Masterson appraisal after the photographers had gone. “I hate to think of the head start those Big Ten teams, Iowa, Indiana and Minnesota, have on us.” This all proved that the new Husker mentor’s foot and mouth have no visible affinity.

Ken Keltner’s 14th home run of the season gave the Cleveland Indians a 3 to victory over the Chicago White Sox Saturday before a ladies’ day crowd of more than 7,000. The Sox assumed a two-run lead in the early part of the game, but the Indians tied it up in the sixth after getting only two See YANKEES , Page 3-B, Col. 3. Neb. City Ousted From Tournament COLUMBIA, Mo. (A3). Missouri football Coach Don Faurot said Saturday he feared that Bernard Pepper, an outstanding pre-war tackle at the university, will be unable to return to school this fall. Faurot did not say why Pepper might be out of uniform this season. Missouri, however, has good tackles in second-team All-America Jim Keweis, 295- pounder, and Ed Hodges, 210- pounds, of the 1942 champions. Don Christ, another pre-war tackle, is expected to put in his appearance early next week. The Tigers will continue their twice daily workouts Monday. OMAHA. (IP).

Patty Berg, Minneapolis professional, defeated Betty Jean Rucker, Spokane amateur, 3 and 2 Saturday in the semi-finals of the National Women’s Open golf tournament. BETTY JAMESON, San Antonio, Texas pro, defeated Dot Kielty, Long Beach, Calif., I up in the other semi-final match. The two professionals will be playing for a $5,600 first prize in the 36-hole finals. Patty was 2 up over Betty Jean at the 18-hole intermission. Miss Berg won four holes to one for Miss Rucker on the first nine of the afternoon round. She was deadly with her putter thru most of the round, while Miss Rucker played into the woods on occasion. SOUTH BEND, Ind. (IP), Coach Frank Leahy of Notre Dame, pessimistic as usual, Saturday said he failed to understand why the Irish were being so highly touted for national football championship honors this season. “Never in my coaching experience have there been so many positions open on the team as is the case this season,” he said. This is because we do not know what to expect from the returned servicemen. The Notre Dame squad will be composed largely of returning servicemen. Certainly there are a great many lettermen returning here, as elsewhere, but each of these boys coming back from the war represents a definite individual question mark.” WEST POINT. (IP). The great Army football team of the past two years—one of the truly fine gridiron machines of all time— has been hard hit by losses from graduation and other causes, and the replacements ' are not too promising. Chances are that the Cadets will have only the best backfield in the country this fall, instead of the two best backfields and the two best lines. Their forward wall will be only good, instead of wonderful, and their shortage of reserves might catch them where it hurts before the season is over. That is how Coach Earl “Red” Blaik sizes it up after two days of practice, but he wishes it clearly understood he is not “singing the blues.” The others still are going to have to come and get the soldiers. They will take considerable beating. BETTY JAMESON had squared her match with Dot Kielty, California state amateur titlist, at the end of 27 holes. Two down at the start of the afternoon round, Miss Jameson won the 20th hole with a seven- foot putt for a birdie three. Trap trouble cost her the next two holes, but she won the 23rd with a five-foot putt for birdie three. She got par four on the 24th to win the hole when Miss Kielty missed a two-foot putt. Miss Jameson squared the match on the 25th when Miss Kielty dubbed an approach. They halved the next two holes. Rig Nine Bosses Gather in Chicago For Conference THE CADETS expect no real help from their plebe squad. No matter how “loaded up” some of the other teams are supposed to be, it is to be seriously doubted that any starting college backfield in the land will quite measure up to the quartet of ‘Doc” Blanchard, Glenn Davis, Tom “Shorty” McWilliams and Arnold Tucker. What they can do from the T-formation is a thing close to football murder. CHICAGO. (ZP). Athletic officials of the Western Conference will assemble here Sunday to compare their anti-recruiting policy with prir-riples of amateurism recently enunciated by representatives of more than 200 college leagues. The Western Conference feels confident it has operated within the scope of pure amateurism, but Sunday will study details of project scholarship plans to determine their conformity. The athletic directors and faculty representatives also will reconsider the conference stand on basketball double-headers and legislation banning athletes from appearing on sponsored radio broadcasts, and determine the eligibility status of University of Illinois students at "extension centers.” Baseball's Big Six K ah r h pct.
