As I See It
BY JUNE BIERBOWER
The time has come for gridiron
talk and such so a look at the
Husker team is In order.
As yet, things are a bit in the
air while Royal Kahler attempts
to clear his eligibility. Kahler, one
of the biggest men in the Husker
line, was drilled as regular left
tackle last spring, but his scholas
tic standing is doubtful as yet.
This is one case where a single
player can make a whale of a dif
ference in a team. The Husker
aren't any too long on experienced
tackles, and as Link Lyman said
the other day, Kahler's replace
ment, Clarence Herndon, is in the
position Kahler was last year
good," but green.
Time and again it's the tackle
spot where the heavy traffic is.
No team ever went anywhere with
out tackles, and without Kahler,
we're wondering what the pore in
N. U. tackles will do up against
the big bad brutes from Oklahoma,
where a tackle under 200 pounds
is called a shrimp.
Then, just to make it a bit
worse, Ralph Whitehead, sopho
more candidate from Minatare, is
in pretty deep water with his
books. He wasn't counted on as a
starter, but capable reserves never
hurt any team. Ah me, we'd better
quit, or things will look bad.

yard pass to Luther in the end
zone that was good. Rohrig booted
the extra point.
The Greens then began a goal

Rohn hit the
