Weir, freshman football coach and
assistant track coach at the Uni

forward and be recognized.
Ed, a leading figure in Corn
husker athletics for a number of
seasons and twice captain of Ne
braska football teams, started his
career at Superior high school
where he was an all around star
in football, basketball and track.
He shone as a backfield performer
in football, was an outstanding
center in basketball and an all
around man in track. Weir won
the interscholastic pentathlon title
and twice captured all event med
als in the high hurdles and once
won the pole vault in the big state
Upon entering university, Weir
divided his time between footbal
and track. On the gridiron Ed
played a tackle position and rates
the distinction of being one ot the
few modern football men to twice
win the coveted All A mcrica
honors. E;d was a unanimous
choice bis junior and senior years.

Coach D. X. Bibie was wearing a
broad smile at the conclusion of
Wednesday's practice. His second
string ball carriers had finally ex
ploded, and with such devastating
efiect that they blasted through
me rresnmen almost at will.
Fred Murray, one time, pride of

blocky Jack Miller ripped through
the frosh defense to score two
touchdowns against the yearlings,
but it was the manner in which
they did it that elated the Husker

Miller, Murray, Overstreet and
Staab will undoubtedly get an op
portunity to go against Iowa Sat
urday. It looks as if the first
string backs may have a chance to
rest for awhile, after a lone- snell I
of hard games.
Contrary to popular belief, a boil
isn't always an indication of poor
physical condition. Corwin Hul
bert, who was released Wednesday
from the infirmary, is in the best
shape of his varsity career, or was
until that pesky boil placed him on
the sidelines for the Kansas State
game. It seems that the boil de
veloped from a bruise just below
the elbow of the arm Hulbert uses
so effectively in smashing through
for a tackle.
Although he lost some weight.
the veteran tackle will probably
see some action against the Hawk
eyes, but just enough to put him
in fine fettle for the Pitt Panthers.
