If the varsity-frosh games of
1949 and 1950 are used as a
measuring stick for the current
varsity team, then the 1950 squad
is 7 points better than the 1949
The 1949 varsity scored a 40-0
Win while last Saturday's game
ended 60-13.
The 1950 squad showed a lot
of raw ability. This was occasion
ally obscured by faulty ball
handling, fumbles, and mix ups
in play executions.
Ball carriers were sprung loose
through the correct hole only to
be knocked down by some stray
frosh tackier. The blocking was
erratic. At times the varsity ball
carriers were able to get plenty
of yardage. Again the frosh line
men dumped them on their pants

they did tn m t.'.c h'.e thirties
and early forties. Louis, the boy
with the atomic fists, no longer
hypnotises the public as he used
to do.
This is due partially to the re
tirement of Mike Jacobs. During
the Louis era, Jacobs made his
boy a human goldmine. He was
the wizard of promotion. He
billed third rate fights as champ
ionship or near championship
matches. And this was but one
of master promoter Jacob's tricks
of the trade.
Another reason for the present
lack of publicity is that Louis
himself has been past his peak
for a long time. He is nearing
his fortieth year, an ago at which
most men are thinking about

Louis Heavy
Louis will go into the fight
weighing about 220 pounds. In
his prime he tipped the scale at
...bout 200. It is rumored that
roost of the excess fat has gone
to his waistline.
In Ezzard Charles he will meet
a good heavyweight who isn't
quite thirty. The very fact that
Charles isn't recognized as a sen
sational fighter probably has a
let to do with the lack of public
ity. Charles ian't universally re
cognized as the world's champ
ion. He is no John L. Sullivan with
his fists. He himself admits this.
He has been heard to say that
he would rather win a fight on
points than he would to win by
beating his opponents brains out.
Charles will weigh in between
185 and 190. He will undoubtedly
be in top physical condition.
Among bis assets as a fighter
are bis speed, and fast thinking
He possesses enough punch that
nobody is going to stand still and
let Charles hit him just for the
fun of it.
Charles is the champion., Louis
the challenger. Louis has said
that actually both of them are
mere challengers for the title.
This is a contradiction on Louis'
part. After he retired he pro
moted a fight betwee Joe Wal
cott and Charles which he billed
as a championship bout. Charles

Carodine had an opportunity
to go the whole length of the
field for a touchdown on a kick
off. The only thing that stopped
him was dropping the ball.
Ray Novak did some nice run

standing offensive weapon for the
frosh. He was on the throwing
end of a touchdown pass and hit
his receivers during the entire
game. Dick Westin contributed
plenty of yardage.
The varsity is still weak in the
pass department. Both frosh
touchdowns came by way of the
airlanes. End Bill Giles was in
the varsity's defender's hair

Charles retorted to the Louis

Sports Editor, Daily Nebraskan
Another season of Huskerland's athletics is now in
full swing with the hope that this year will produce more
victories and championships
than ever before.
Already king football is riding high while on the Corn
husker campus, baseball, track, gymnastics, and wrestling
have received a share of the spotlight.
Coach Bill Glassford is sending his charges through
rough daily workouts in preparation for a rugged schedule
and for the opening game with Indiana in particular. And
though, not being overly optimistic, this writer sees Bill's
Cornhuskers winning their share of the contests and
finishing no farther down than third in the Big-Seven.
Three of the conference victories should come about
through the defenite superiority of the Husker gridders
and their coaching while a fourth could likely be the result
of the players ability, their determined fight, and the spirit
stirred up and kept burning by the Nebraska loyal.
Non-confernce foes will find the Scarlet and Cream no
soft-touch, also, and unless extremely keyed-up for the
game, may find themselves dn the short end of a final
Coach Tony Sharpe and his baseballers have begun
practicing for the defense of their Big-Seven championship.
Long, a weak spot of Nebraska sports, the Cornhusker
diamond men have come into their own the past few sea
sons, taking the coveted conference title twice in the last
i three years and it doesn't appear that they are going to
slacken their pace this year.
Al Partin, taking over the reins of the Nebraska
wrestling crew, has started his charges on the road of an
other sucessful mat year.
; Coach Ed Weir is setting about the molding of a track
squad that will carry on the Husker tradition of good teams
iand well conditioned men. Championship teams are 'old
stuff to Ed and his indoor and outdoor squads.
Coach Jake Geier of the Husker gymnasts is expect
ing a good team ace high in experience to represent the
Scarlet and Cream this year.
And then, too, Coaches Harry Good, Hollie Lepley,
Marv Franklin, and Higgenbotham who have not yet begun
work on their basketball, swimming, golf, and tennis teams,
can be expected to do yeoman jobs on furnishing good
teams for the Cornhuskerland.
As for this end of the line, I only hope I can continue
what others have started and serve you readers by print
ing a sports page you will like and appreciate. So as we
roll into another sports season, lets all get behind the boys
and show some of that good old Husker spirit and keep
Cyclones Take Early Lead in
Bisr Seven Conference Race
The Big Seven got their out of
conference games off on the
wrong leg last Saturday. Kansas
State fell to the Washington
Huskies 33-7. In the other non
conference game Texas Christian
splattered Kansas 14-7.
The only conference game on
deck found Iowa State slipping
by Colorado by a similar score
of 14-7.
It took everything Texas Chris
tian had to give before the Jay
hawks finally flopped. A pass in
terception put Texas deep in
Kansas territory in the first quar
ter. The Horned Frogs took quick
advantage of the opportunity and
scored the first marker from the
2-yard line. The conversion gave
Texas a 7-0 lead.
Kansas struck right back on
the next kick off. With the highly
touted Charley Hoag leading the
way, Kansas drove 66-yards for
their marker. Hoag passed to
John Amberg for the last 23
yards and the touchdown. The
conversion split the uprights to
tie the score.

The Kansas State Wildcats
were no match for Washington.
The Huskies meant business right
from the start. Washington scored
once in the first quarter, twice
in the second, and once in the
third and fourth quarters. Quar
terback Don Heinrich set a new
Washington passing mark of four
touchdown passes in one game.
The Wildcats went 70-yards in
the second quarter for their
7 points. Halfback Tee Maupin
went through right tackle for
the score.
The Iowa State Cyclones as
sumed an early lead in the Big
Seven race by smacking Colo

behind in order to get the victory.
Colorado got off to an early

their early lead.

Ioiva State Faces
Tough Wildcats
Iowa State's squad, fresh from
an opening win from Colorado,
faces one of its toughest non
conference foes in years when
it plays Northwestern Saturday
at Evanston, 111.
The Wildcats are rated as the
most likely team to surprise all
the Big Ten experts. Coach Bob
Voigts' crew has all the power,
speed and depth to cause upsets
every Saturday around the con
ference. The game at Evanston Satur
day will mark the fifth time
the two teams have met. First
time was in 1895 when Iowa
State won the game, 36-0. So
great was the upset that a Chi
cago writer wrote:
"Struck by Cyclone. It Comes
from Iowa and Devastates Ev
anston Town."
The name Cyclone became the
official nickname from that day
In 1937, 1945, and 1946 the
Cyclones tried it again but came
up with 0-33, 6-18, and 9-41
Northwestern will be in its
season opener. A contingent of
three scouts were at Clyde Wil
liams field to watch the Cy
clones against Colorado to give
Voigts a pretty fair idea of what
to expect from the Iowa State
Colorado and two plays later to
score. The conversion was good
and the game tied at 7-7.
The Cyclones got their second
touchdown on a pass interference
ruling which placed the ball on
the Buff 6-yard line. Schnell
picked up three yards and Weeks
two. Then Congiardo went over
for the winning touchdown.

test of the day as Inter-Varsity
squeezed through with a 2-0
victory over the Ag YMCA. Th
two-pointer, coming in the sec
ond quarter, might not hav
been the only scoring in the
game, however.
Both Threaten
Both outfits threatened tim
and time again. The YM men
came the closest in the second
period when a pass interception
took them to within a whisper
of the double stripe, but the I-V
boys refused to budge any
Inter-Varsity threatened thret
times but couldn't quite push

Newman Club was the fourth
victor of the afternoon, getting
their victory without working-up
a sweat, by virtue of a forfeit.
The outfit failing to make an ap
