highly concerned over fullback

doubles as an offensive and de
fensive player will be out for

Breathing Hard
. They all complained of not
"being able to breathe well. Some
observers believed that the dif
ference in altitude between Lin

1,600 ft.) might be the cause of
the Husker's short-windness.

Glassford still has a long way
to go before the Huskers will
be ready for the powerful In
diana Hoosiers. With the game
only two weeks off and 11 play
ers on the injury list, the rope
is drawing short for Nebraska.
Glassford indicated that he
will probably work on funda
mentals the coming week as well
as breathing exercises.
Saturday afte-noon the var
sity and the frosh mix it up in
their annual game. After then, it
will be easier to see how much
the Huskers have improved over
last year.

Four Big Seven Schools
Will See Action Saturday
"The Call of The Cridiron"
will be the theme of the week
end Saturday around the Big
Seven conference when four con
ference schools pull the baby
blanket off of their infant foot
ball squads.
The conference sportlight will
focus on the Iowa State-Colorado
argument at Boulde r.
Whichever team goes home with
the victory laurels will automat
ically take over the lead in the
conference race since this will
be the only conference game. "The

themselves into the conference

itself any good raiding the cam

only forbid tampering with high

From the Yankee camp, Art

ledged that their club had
snatched the 19-year-old Chicago
youth, regarded, as one of the
best all-around athletes in the
Western conference.
Patterson said, "The boy is old
enough to make up his own mind.
What do they expect us to do
wait until these boys become
Supreme court justices?"
The reply, in my opinion was
about as stupid and as far from
a sensible answer that could have
been given.
Nebraska was faced with a
similar problem last spring, 'ex

and could realize his position.
A 19-year-old lad 'does mot

it is a lot of money. But he is

happens to him if he falls to
make the grade in pro ball. To
where does he turn?

until he was through with college
