This is a crucial series for
Coach Sharpe's crew. The games
with Iowa State can either make
or break the Huskers.
The Husker hopes will also be
riding with the outcome of the
double header between second
place Colorado and third place

State are always tough. The Cy
clones always give Nebraska a
rough go but I hope we can break
the jinx this year." Those words

The Nebraska squad is in good

Welcome to the University of Nebraska's campus!
For the next two days you, students and athletes from
various high schools throughout the state, are guests of
the University. We hope that your stay here will be pleas
ant and to the seniors, we hope that you will return to
our campus next fall.
To those who are competing, remember, there can: be
only one winner the rest must lose. Tom Daley, former
sports-caster for WOW, used a quotation to sign off the
air. I'd like to use part of it to tell you what the Univer
sity's policy is in regards to athletics.
"Its not whether you won or lost, but how you played
That one little sentence tells the whole story, barring
nothing. Sometimes its very hard to lose. Americans are
great winners, we pride ourselves in our accomplishments
and sportsmanship. We are also good losers.
A good example of an American loser is Barney Ewell
who, along with Harrison Dillard, was competing in the
Olympic games in London last year. You all remember how
Dillard hit a hurdle in the Olympic try-outs and did not
qualify, but how he came back in the 100 meter dash to
Getting back to the Olympic games, you well re
member how Ewell thought he had won the 100 meter
dash, but the judges had picked Dillard by a hair. Ewell
was disgusted, but he had no malice in his heart he was
happy that his friend had won.
To those who are winners, I congratulate, to those
who were not fortunate enough to win I congratulate and
to all, I sincerely hope that you will look over our campus,
our school buildings and our athletic department and then
decide to come to Nebraska U and make it your school.
