FROM COLLEGE SPOR t
AMES, la., Feb. 10. A majority
of the Big Six conference wrest
ling coaches agree that profession
al wrestling detracts from the
popularity of the college sport ac
cording to a recent survey con
ducted by Hugo Otopalik, grap
pling mentor at Iowa State College
and United States Olympic wrest
ling coach in 1932.
In answer to the question, "How
has professional wrestling affect
ed the college sport in your sec
tion?" four agreed that the in
creasingly popular professional
sport has had some effect. Okla
homa, mecca of wrestling cham
pions, has not been affected in the
opinion of Paul J. Keen, coach at
the university. Collegiate wrestling
at Kansas State has likewise not
been harmed says B. R. Patterson,
grappling mentor there.
"To most people in this section,
wrestling signifies professional
wrestling," stated Guy Sapping
ton, coach at the University of
Missouri, "and more of them pre
fer it to college wrestling. They
have not been thoroughly educat
ed in amateur wrestling."

vor of eliminating overtime bouts

The grappling mentora were unan
imous in agreeing to do away with
overtime matches in dual and con
ference meets. The vote was four
to two favoring the elimination of
time advantage watcnes.
"This would seem to indicate."
Otopalik predicted, "that Big Six
coaches are In favor of speeding
up matches and 'nstilling more ac
tion into the bouts."
Another of the Cyclone tutor's
theories, that of discontinuing
wrestling for third places In the
conference tournament, did not
meet with such unanimity of ap
proval from the other coaches.
Four of the six answered aen

Kansas State has the largest
squad of varsity and prep candi
dates, 100. Nebraska and Iowa
State follow with 70 apiece. The
state of Oklahoma is strongest in
wrestling interest, Otopaltk's sur
vey shows. Fifty-five high schools
and colleges in that state promote
wrestling teams. Missouri ranks
next with 50, while Kansas boasts
45 and and Iowa, 35. NeDrasiia is
far behind her sister states as she
supports only 13 teams.

Full House of Tiger Jeerers
Huskers Win Anyway;
To Face Cyclone (Jninl
On Home Kink Saturday
A full house did Missouri no
good as Nebraska trumped her ace
43-33 in a torrid cage contest Sat
urday night at Columbia. It was
a full house that consisted of not
a cheering, but a jeering crowd,
that booed the officials, the score
keepers, and lulled the referees
with the "Three Blind Mice'' mere
ly as self concocted recreation.
The mob conduct is mentioned be
cause it was this that entertained
cash customers the second half
and not the ball game.
For half vthe playing time the
fracas was as expected, an eye
and tooth affair, but following the
curfew at the half Missouri was
never considered by the goddess
victory. All Big Six fans were
kneeling nightly by their bedsides
last week to strengthen the Husker
chances for a necessary win. That
is, all except Coach Forrest Allen
and the Jay boys. Had Nebraska
lost, as was far from improbable,
the Jayhawk would have had the
top conference rank undieputably
leased for the season's remainder.

No, Becky, a coach teaches
muscles, but he must have more
than muscle to teach with. Now
take Coach William Harold Browne
for instance. He graduated from
Morton high school, Richmnd, Ind.,
so he must have attended grade
school some place. Wc wouldn't
want to make any more conclusions
as to why he attended so many
universities. First there was Earl
ham college at Richmond, then
State Normal ut LaCrosse, Wis,,
and lastly the Normal college of
the American gymnastic union at
Indianapolis ,Ind., from which he
graduated in scheduled time.
He graduated with a bachelors
degree, but was soon the victim
of rice and old shoes. The lucky
lady's name is Mrs. Browne.
What it was, I know not. In the
present Browne house (painted
white) there are two little
Browne children (same color as
the house). Statistics show that
one is a boy and the other a gal,
Billy and Dorothy Jean.
The coaching idea came to
Browne when he was just a little
lad. His first tutoring duties were
in the Auburn high school in Au
burn, Ind. This quintet was run
nerup in the district tournament.
So you see, he stalled his pam
collecting at an early age. Then
he went to the Froebet public
school of Gary, Ind., for a spell.
From there to the home of the
Red and Black here in Lincoln.
Everyone is conscious of his rec
ord compiled in these portal.
His football team went thru all
their opponents like they were
green lights, losing only three
games in ten years. Among the
barriers overcome were Lane
Tech of Chicsgo and Waite high
of Toledo, Ohio. Now, in bas
ketball, three times Browne's
teams wore the championship
smile and had a .750 averap for

With Ray Ebling paving the
way, Kansas knocked off Okla
homa to remain in an antagonistic
lead over the Brownemen. The
Jayhawks displayed similar action
to that of Nebraska as they de
voted most of their minutes to of
fense, but came through with a
43-36 score. By virtue of this score,
Kansas can still carry a clean con
ference . slate into her next en
counter. Saturday will bring Nebraska
another tough assignment. That
Iowa State gang will attempt to
repeat a prized victory over the
Huskers. Earlier in the season, you
will remember, the Cyclones oozed
out a 40-41 win over the Scarlet,
but the slightly conquered have
improved enough since that time
to be the conquerors providing that
they let nothing slip.
Looking over the entire Big Six
set-up for the week, there is an
interesting; arrangement. The lead
ers, Kansas, play the bottom team,
the Haggles; the next to high
quint, Nebraska, plays the next to
low, Iowa State; and the two mid
dle fives, Oklahoma and Missouri,
tangle at Norman.
