NORMAN, Okla., Sept 20. (Spe

eighteen of them 1923 letter men,
and a score of membera of last year's
freshman squad start their fight for
places on the Sooner eleven, accord

of the University of Oklahoma.
Owen will be assisted in the task
of rounding out his team by Dr. Ed

known as one of the greatest foot
ball stars ever developed in Sooner

from the university, was coach of, the

The squad is captained by Gordon
"Obie"' Bristow, triple-threat full
back. Stiff competition for that
place, however, is promised by Lamb,
second year backfield man of the
past season. Shaefer, Wallace, Flem-'

pete for center, while Brockman and
Guffey return at guard. White ana
Pennick, 1923 tackles, and Hickman
and Price, veteran ends, will fight
with half a doien of last year's fresh
men for regular berths. Hunter,
Arbuckle, Hendricks, Steinberg and
Woodall loom as the most likely con
tenders for halfback. Eddie John

Henry F. VIndian" Schulte came
to Nebraska six years ago from Mis
souri where he had made .a wonder
ful record with hi track teams. He
is head track coach at Nebraska and
line coach for the football teams.
Nebraska has been known for strong
lines on its football teams and Schul
te has done much to build these
Since coming to Nebraska, Schulto
has won four successive Missouri
Valley track championships. Mis

the valley king on the cinder track,
but since losing Schulte it has tak
en Nebraska's dust
Schulte played football on "Hur
ry-Up" Yost's famous "point-a-min-ute"
teams at the University of
Michigan. There he became known
as a great lineman. His knowledge
of track athletics has been mostly
gained since then, and so thorough
ly has he learned that he is now
known as one of the foremost track
coaches in the country.
Perhaps the greatest work Schulto
has done since coming to Nebraska
is with the high schools of the state.
When he arrived track athletics in
the state amounted to little; now
through Schulte's advice and promo
tion, Nebraska ranks high among the
states in. this field.
The annual cross country run for
high schools and the pentathlon are
the products of Schulte's work. They
have stimulated interest until the an
nual state high school track meet is
one of the big events of the college
year. There are few high school
men in the state who do not know
To Broadcast Accounts
of All Football Games
Accounts of football games played
at Nebraska will be broadcast by the
University Radio Station, WFAV.
Football and radio fans within a rad
ius of 300 or 400 miles will be able
to hear a play-by-play account of the
games. A special microphone exten
sion will be run from the transmitter
in the Electrical Engineering build
ing to the side of the field.
Various programs consisting of
short lectures and music will be
broadcast throughout the winter un

in Coaching course
In the new four-yea course in
athletic coaching offered by the
Teachers College under the direction
of the athletic coaching staff, the
registration is heavy. The general
plan of the course is to prepare stu
dents to coach the athletics of a
school and at the same time teach
one or two other subjects. Instruc
tion will be offered in all sports. The
University of Illinois is the only oth
er institution in the middle-west that
has a well developed four-year
course in athletic coaching. The Uni
versity of Michigan has also attempt
ed some work along this line. A
number of courses will be offered in
this department next summer.
Dean W, E. Sealock of the Teach
ers College attended the county insti
tute at Minden last week.
Squad Round Into Shape Af
ter Week of Practice on
START AERIAL WORK
UNDER COACH KLINE
With the first week of football
practice over and most of the squad
rounding into good condition, some
stiff scrimmage practice is promised
for the second week.
. Blocking, tackling, kicking and
running with the ball have made up
the bulk of the practice so far. Coach
Kline was scheduled to put the squad
through some stiff practice in the
aerial game during the second week.
Due to lack of equipment, the
freshman squad will not begin prac
tice until Monday. The Varsity squad
this year has been so large that all
the football gear has been given out
A cutting of the squad to lessen this
difficulty was promised.
The freshman squad will probably
take some time to get into condition,
after which the annual varsity-freshman,
game will be played.
Captain Weir, Locke, Bloodgood,
Dailey and A. Mandery have been
showing up well in the kicking end
of the game. Captain Weir's kicking
has been going good. Should the
Nebraska leader develop into a reli
able kicker, his ability to run with
the ball might come in to better ad
vantage. From this group Coach
Dawson should be able to develop a
kicker who will be a real asset to the
Teom Ha Stiff Practice.
The first real heavy practice was
put on the last of the week. The
linemen toiled at the heavier tasks,
although the ends and backs were
also given their share of work.
Coach Dawson's greatest difficul
ty will b? in developing a backfield
from the green material at hand.
Locke, the speedster of the squad,
who played in several games last
year, may develop into' a fine back.
Avard Mandery has also shown
promise. Dailey, a speedy product
of the track squad, may show well.
Backfield I Lighter.
This year's backfield will not be
as heavy as those of former years,
but it should be 'somewhat more
speedy. Some of the beef will be
lacking from the line also.
With the Illinois game two weeks
from Saturday, the squad will have
to be put through the paces with
some speed. With a green squad this
is almost impossible at first, but

things should move with considerable
zip before long.
Al Bloodgood has been showing up
well Jn the contest for the quarter
back berth and Doug Myers looks
like a likely selection for fullback.
Myers is somewhat on the style of
Hartman, the bone crusher of last
year. "He isn't an open field run
ner; hell Just open the field," some
one remarked at practice after
watching Myers run over and down
a would-be tackier.
Rhodes and Robertson, of last
year's squad, are showing well at
ends and they should repeat in hold
ing the wing positions. Several oth
ers are displaying enough stuff to
furnish some competition.
. START GRIND MONDAY
Several Former All-State Star
and High School Men
When Head Coach Dawson sounds
first call for freshmen football can
didates, several former all-state high
school grid stars are expected to re
port to serve under Husker colors
for the first time. The Husker men
tor will probably issue moleskins to
the freshmen this week with the ini
tial workout being slated for Monday.
The local coaching staff will be busy
during the first two weeks of drill
with the inexperienced Varsity, al
though the grid assistants will alter
nate in tutoring the freshmen.
Among those who are registered
in school and have made known their
intention of bidding for berths on
the first year machine are John "Jug"
Brown, former Lincoln high pilot;
Vinton Lawson, Omaha Central stel
lar lineman; Lawrence Malm, Nor
folk high star; Oelrich, Columbus
halfback, and Rlesh, Grand Island
tackle. All these gridsters received
mention on mythical high school
elevens last fall.
' State colleges as well as adjacent
states are sending Nebraska the ser
vices of their athletes. Bob Steph
ens, Hastings college quarter, and
all-state conference selection, and
Armour of Wayne Normal are both
enrolled in the Husker institution.
Earl Voris, captain of the Greeley
Colorado state champs two seasons
ago, and his team mates James and
Benton are also found on the list of
promising college athletes. Voris is
a coming end while James dots his
stuff at center and Benton in the
Omaha Central sends Mutt Fetter
man and Harry Mays to' Nebraska;
South high, Rusa Townsend and
Jones; from Lincoln high comes Dor
sey Mclntyre. Leon Sprague, York
high wingster, is also entered in the
local knowledge foundry together
with Conklin of St Paul, Harbaugh
of McCook, Pika of Kearney and
Stiner from Hastings high.
