Adduci's Condition Still
Main Husker Headache

Coach J. William Glassford
took it easy with his 1950 crop of
Comhuskers Monday night and
it wasnt because he felt they
were in shape.
The master of the gridiron was
worrying over the injury hex
that hit the Huskers 11 strong
the past week.
One major change was being
anticipated by Glassford. Gerry
Furguson was working out with
the ends Monday. Furguson was
in full uniform for the first time
after laying off for a spell with
a knee injury.
Don Boll was working out with
the defensive squad under as
sistant Coach Neal Mehring. Boll
had been on the injury list.
Nick Adduci, the number one
worry of the Husker camp, still
is on the doubtful list. The hard
charging Chicago fullback might
be lost for the season.
No new reports were available
on Adduci because the swelling
had not gone down. Officials de
clined to make any comment on
George Paynich was out run
ning, but he was not in pads.
Ron Clark, of Kansas State
fame, was still nursing his rib
injury. Clark tore some muscles
loose from his ribs, making it
hard for him to breathe and run.
Trainer Blaine Rideout had
him under the sun lamp for a
while Monday afternoon. Clark

Hoosiers Might Have
Two Starting Sophs
Going into the third week of
preseason preparation, Indiana's
resurging Hoosiers appear likely
to have two sophomores in their
lineup when they face the start
ing whistle at Lincoln on Sept.
30 against much-improved Ne
braska. One position quarterback
is a certainty to be filled by a
first year man. All five signal
callers on Coach Clyde Smith's
squad are sophomores. The other
is right halfback.
Final selection at quarterback,
likely to be in doubt up to game
time, shapes up to be between
Lou D'Achille. a 5-8, left-handed
mite, and Ray Petrauskas, a
sharp-passer of more substantial
proportions. Another pair of
yearlings, John Zuger and Dick
Ashbumer. are close enough be

"I hated to move him," ex

best running backs and we feel
we need to have them both in at

On the basis of early work
outs Stuber is expected to stick

most spots. He has shifted some
men from the defensive unit to

As a result the defense for the
Cyclones is likely to be almost

With the old theory firmly in
mind which the past master of
Nebraska Cornhusker Cinder
ology, Henry F. Schulte, handed
down to him that championship
teams spring from team depth
Coach Ed Weir sets about the
task of molding a 1950-51 squad
that will carry on the Husker
tradition of good teams and well
Coach Weir is counting heavily
on the Nebraska wea'her to
string along on his side this year,
something which hasn't been true
in other years. The squad lost
a lot of valuable time last spring
because climatic conditions
wouldn't permit them to practice.
They are going to up the lost
time this fall in the early work
outs. The squad is planning on
getting in six weeks of solid
work outside before they pack up
their gear and move indoors.
Hit by Graduation
Another hairpin which makes
Coach Weir scratch his hair and
frown is the tremendous loss by
graduation last June. Out of a
total of 105 points scored by the
Husker outdoor conference
champs, 64 were racked up by
men who received their degrees.
Replacements are expected to
come mainly through a fine frosh
squad from last year. However,
these men are untried in confer
ence competition and the old
bugagoo, the "sophomore jinx,"
has ruined many a good man in
his first role as a varsity per
former. In looking the situation over
Coach Weir says, "Last year's
team won the outdoor track
trophy on the basis of all-around
team strength. This is shown by
the number of men that each
school qualified. After the quali
fying was finished, Nebraska had
17 men who had tickets for the
final events while our nearest
rival had 12. In amassing the
105 points, we scored only three

same prescription to carry the
Huskers along this year.
