IOWA CITY, Nov. 21 Bernie
Bierman's slick-running Iowa Sea
hawks convinced their followers
today that they were one of the
nation's topmost teairfs by slam
ming a crippled Nebraska eleven,
46-0, in a great offensive display.
Punching over for two touch
downs in the first, third and fourth
periods, the rampant Seahawks
utilized superb blocking and pro
fessional ball-toting to undermine
the injury-wrecked Husker team.
Nine plays after the ref had
toted his opening message the
Seahawks possessed six points.
Swisher, Jankowski, Evashevski
and the powerhouse Seahawk
backs simply had too much of
fensive "oomph" for the Husker
line to hold.
A pass from Fisher to Evashev
ski capped another first-period

drive for the second tally. Svend
son failed to duplicate his initial
successful conversion and the
count stood 13-0.
Former Ohio State ace, Jim
Langhurst, sparked the drive for
the sole Seahawk touchdown in the
second stanza. After packing the
leather over a majority of the ter
ritory to pay dirt, Langhurst tal
lied on a seven-yard end sweep.
Wells converted, leaving the half
time count 19-0.
33-0 at Third.
Most sensational play of the
fray occurred three plays after the
third period started when Bobby
Swisher, former Northwestern
great, galloped 80 yards behind
perfect interference for fourth
score. Fact that not a hand
touched Swisher during his jour
ney reflects the effective Sea
hawk blocking. Svendsen's conver
sion attempt was partially blocked,

ing, plus Howard Debus' passing,
and Wally Hopp's plunging.

Evolving the themes of their
skits around the present war, the
majority of the participating fra
ternities kept in step with the
spirit of present day college life
and activity. Because of the rul
ing of no sororities participating
in the show, a departure from the
years past, the program included
an all male cast. To allow for the
vacancy left by the skits of the
sororities four more fraternities
were included in this year's show.
The championship skit, entitled
Chocolate Sunday, presented by
members of Alpha Tau Omega,
under the direction of Don James,
depicted humorously the nightlife
of a Negro cabaret. Coordinating
humorous Negro dances and antics
with some of the more popular
songs of today the audience judged
this skit the best by registering
their vote through the applauses-graph.
Other outstanding skits were
presented by members of Sigma
Nu, Phi Kappa Psi, Sigma Alpha
Epsilon, Sigma Chi, Phi Gamma
Delta, Sigma Alpha Mu and Alpha
Sigma Phi fraternities. All skits
were the product of the individual
fraternities and were adjudged the
best for presentation by members
of Kosmet Klub earlier in the year.
Acting as matser of ceremonies
for the afternoon's performance
was Romlo Soldevilla, senior in
the college of arts and sciences.
The show was the 3lst annual
performance of Kosmet Klub, the
first venture dating back to 1911.
