Goalward Drives for

Spectacular dashes by Fred
Murray and Jack Miller stole the
show from the first string Wed
nesday as this pair of reserve ball
carriers dashed thru for two touch
downs and a total of 34S yards in
thirty-three plays against the
freshmen. The workout marked
the final scrimmage before the
Iowa game.
Murray, former Omaha Tech
.star, climaxed an afternoon of
powerful offensive drives on the
part of the varsity with a great

If there Is any sport fan in Ne
braska that has not heard of Ed
Weir, freshman football coach and
assistant track coach at the Uni
versity of Nebraska, let him step
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
prep meet.

After leaving the college halls,
Weir kept on with his athletics.
For several seasons he was player
and manager of the Frankford

ball team in the National league.
He played end with this club and

Kilbourne has been bothered since

active duty.
Another Nebraska casualty,
Corwin Hulbert reported for duty,
but his activities consisted largely
of limbering up in a track suit. A
boil kept Hulbert out of the Kan
sas State game last week, and he
will probably see most of the Iowa
game from the bench.

Eighteen Thousand Tickets
Sold for Grid Classic
With Panthers.
One of the largest crowds in Ne
braska football history will attend
the Pittsburgh-Nebraska game at
Memorial stadium a week from
Saturday, if advance ticket sales
are any' criterion. Business Man
ager John Selleck declares that
about IS, 000 tickets have been
sold, with the classic still ten days
away. General admission seats
available the morning of the game
are expected to boost the attend
ance to 30,000, which would mean
a sellout.
Pitt, favored to represent the
East at the Rose Bowl this year
after blasting Notre Dame from
the undefeated class last week,
plays University of Pennsylvania
at Philadelphia Saturday. Also un
defeated, Penn is expected to Rive
the Panthers a terrific battle,
which would not put Coach Jock
Sutherland's men in prime condi
tion lor the Husker tilt at Lincoln.
Coach Bible's men vowed that
thev would avenge themselves thi.s
year after taking a 40 to 0 lashing
from the Smoky City crew at
Pittsburgh in 1931, and the Corn
huskers are already pointing for
the Pitt team. George Sauer, who
injured a thumb in the Minnesota
game, will be kept out of the Iowa
fray this week for the sole purpose
of giving his hand a chance to
completely heal. Corwin Hulbert,
regular left tackle, is taking things
easy awaiting the Panther menace
as is Steve Hokuf, who plays such
a powerful game at right end.
In resuming their annual grid
argument with Iowa U. this week,
the Cornhuskers find themselves
in a breathing spot for Ihe first
time this season. While Nebraska
is not taking the Hawks lightly,
there will be no effort to "shoot
the works" against Ossie Solem's
tea m.

The Thanksgiving morning re
vue last year consisted of ten acts.
submitted by fraternities and so
rorities on the campus. The
Kappa Kappa Gamma-Delta Upsi
lon combination musical revue was
judged the best act in the revue
j and awarded the Magee cup. The
I cup will be awarded again this
year to the act judged by the au-
Uience to be the best entertainment
j on the program.
The complete program for the
rortncoming revue will be an
nounced within a few days. Skit
applications are being judged by
the Klub at the present time, and
definite announcement will be ; made
made in about a week.
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
the freshmen almost at will.
Fred Murray, one time pride of
Omaha Tech's barkfiekl, and
blocky Jack Miller ripped through
the frosh defense to score two
touchdowns against the yearlings,
but it was the manner in which
j they did it that elated the Husker
coaching staff.
These two Omaha boys were
running fast and hard through the
line and around the ends. They
knew where they were going, and
it didn't take them long to get
there. By their fine play Wednes
day, the entire reserve backfield of
Miller, Murray, Overstreet and
Staab will undoubtedly get an op
portunity to go against Iowa Sat
urday. It looks as if the first j
string backs may have a chance to
rest for awhile, after a long spell I
of hard games. j
Contrary to pcpular 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- j
veloped from a bruise just below 1
the elbow of the arm Hulbert uses !
so effectively in smashing through j
for a tackle.

the veteran tackle will probably
see some action against the Hawk-'
eyes, but just enough to put him 1
in fine fettle for the Pitt Panthers.

skill that characterized his work i

Three of these groups were the
Iron Sphinx, so-called Sophomore
honorary group, Vikings, occupy
ing a similar position in the ranks
of the Junior classmen, and Green
Goblin, Freshmen organization.
Often these groups saw to it that
they cashed in on various social
functions, but no laxity is now to
be found which could make such
methods feasible.
Of course there is no room or
cause for doubt that individuals
gain funds in villous private en
terprises around the campus and
in the houses, by selling papers to
lazy collegians, selling tickets to
unsuspecting people at a higher
price than that which they them
selves paid for them and in many
other 'vays.
Student organization on the
campua of the University of Ne
braska is far from being that
"loosely-strung moss" which Miss
Zoretskie alleges it ts at other
schools, and those deiiving funds
from productive labor on the
campus are far from being just
one happy group of grafters as
one might be led to believe upon
perusing the storv in the Sunday
Journal and Star.
"And when thev are Graduated."
says Miss Zoretskie, "they start
selling bonds." Of course that re
mains to be seen.
