Nebraska's tennis team re

first victory of the year, a 3-3
decision over Kansas Wesley a a.
This is by far the best show

dropped matches to Kansas State,
the University of Kansas, and
Washburn. All of these teams
packed too much experience and
strength for Coach Slezak's
The men who won the matches
for Nebraska down at Salina
were Andy Bunten, Bod Radin,

Sophomore Andy Bunten has
been showing rapid improvement
since the season first started. His
forehand is becoming a very
potent weapon. Main trouble
with Bunten is his service and
the lack of seasoning.
Jerry Magee is beginning to
show some efficiency with the
racket He is the only senior
on the traveling squad.
Bob Radin will offer the Husk
ers considerable assistance next
year. He is becoming a much
steadier player with each ms H

The Husker number one m.
Jamie Curran, is the only re ¬
turning letterman from last year.
He has a strong service. His
main drawback seems to be in
consistency but he is gradually
becoming more steady.
The Huskers will make their
next home appearance this Sat
urday against the Iowa State Cy
clones. Nebraska will definitely
be the under dogs in spite of
their recent victory.
Coach Slezak states that his
squad has a slim chance for vic
