also brought home a share of the

It is supposed to be a vastly
different story this season, how
ever, according to pre-season
dopesters in general and Husker
Coach Harry Good in particular.
The Huskers, hard hit by gradu

Blithely scampering across the
practice field for a 24- victory,
the Pi Phi's made good their
challenge to the Phi Cams

play, the "Rabbit" shyly ad
mitted, "Oh, It was nothing."
The Fsjis were plagued wjtft

Shotton Fired as
Dodger Manager;
Says 'Raw Deal9
Burt Shotton said Friday that
he was through with baseball
because of the raw deal he re
ceived from the Brooklyn Dodg
er head office this week.
Shotton said he might take on
a few "odd jobs" now and then,
but no more big-time stuff in the
big leagues.
Burt was fired as Brooklyn
manager this week and replaced
by Chuck Dressen, a former
Dodger coach who spent the last
two seasons managing the Oak
land, Cal., team in the Pacific
Coast League.
Shotton said he didn't like
being fired or the way he was
fired. He stated that he didn't
even know he was replaced until
a few hours before they an
nounced the appointment of
Walter O'Malley, the new
president of the Dodgers and
his assumption of command led
to the Shotton bounce. O'Malley
replaced Branch Rickey.
Rickey Men Oat
"I wasn't fired because of my
record," Shotton said. "It's just
that O'Malley wanted a new or
ganization without any Branch
Rickey men around."
Some baseball men think that
Shotton may join Rickey at
Pittsburgh although Shotton said
that he had no plans like that.
When O'Malley announced that
Dressen was the new Dodger
manager, he said he would offer
Shotton a job within the Brook
lyn organization when he met
him at the St. Petersburg, Fla.,
baseball convention next week.
Shotton left no doubt what sort
of answer he will give1 if he
attends that convention.
The Pittsburgh managerial po
sition is still open. Marty Mar
ion took over the reins of the
St, Louis Cardinals this week.

The entire University was saddened Thursday by the
death of former Cornhusker Dick Hutton. Those around
the U in 1946, 47, and 48 will remember cheering Dick on
ward in Husker football and track.
Dick was one of the most feared -runners in the con
ference during his football campaigns. As a matter of fact,
that was all Nebraska had in terms of a backfield Dick
In track, Dick excelled in the sprints and was a main
cog in the Husker attempts for conference glory.
But, even outside of athletics, Dick was a star. Every
one who knew him personally liked the guy. His personality
blossomed out over everyone.
In studies, too, Dick was on top. In all the conference
graduating classes in the spring of 1949, Dick received the
Big- Seven award for maintaining the highest average
grade in the classroom of any athlete.
Dick will be missed by all who knew him personally
and he will live in the memories of all Cornhuskers.
Indoor Track and Field Meet
Begins Tuesday; Neiv Events
The intramural indoor track
and field meet gets under way
this Tuesday with the prelimi
naries of the 50-yard dash and
one-lap run being staged. The
prelims will continue through
this week and all of next and
then the finals of all events will
be held in the first full week
following Christmas vacation.
A large turnout of entries is
expected for this first running
of the enlarged indoor meet. In
previous years there has been
both an indoor and an outdoor
meet, but due to the unavailabil
ity of the outdoor track in the
spring, the two have been com
bined in the big indoor meet.
All events previously held in
the indoor will be carried along
with the addition of the follow
ing events: 60-yard high hurdles,
440-yard run, 880-yard run, and
broad jump. There will be an
additional relay, also, the mile
relay. The winning times and
distances in these events this fall
will go into the books as records.
Three Champs
Three defending champions
will be on hand to defend their
laurels. The Student Union, de
fending Independent champs,
will try to repeat. Phi Delta
Theta, last year's fraternity
champion, is expected to throw
another strong team into the
Presby House, defending De
nominational crown wearer, is
also expected to have a lot to
say as to who will carry away
the title this year.
Student Union won their first
title last year by 43 'yj points
while Presby was out in front
by an amazing 86 points. The
Phi Delts had the roughest time
carrying off the crown, edging
Sigma Chi by a mere one and
one-third points.
Expected strength this year is
doped to come from Alpha Tau i

Omega, Sigma Phi Epsilon, and
Sigma Chi in the fraternity
group, besides the Phi Delts.
Methodists Strong
The Methodist Student House,
along with the Newman Club, is
expected to give Presby a run
for its money.
The Ag Men's Club is current
ly doped as the leading con
tender in the Independent divi
sion. No advance entries are neces
sary in order to be able to com
pete this year. All that is re
quired of a man is that he ap
pear some time during the run
ning of the prelims to get his
time or distance recorded.
There will be nearly three
hours for the running of the pre
lims on -most of the events this
year. That means a man has al
most three hours in which to
make it over to the indoor track
to get his licks in. This will be
especially helpful for those who
have football and ROTC classes
during the afternoons.
Against Time
The preliminaries of all runs
will be against time, each man
running will be clocked, so it
doesn't matter who else is in his
preliminary heat.

It was a torrid and terrific display of volleyball staged
by these two aggregations with everything under the sun
In the first game, Cosmo took
an early 2-0 lead, but ten min

Texas Coach
Ed Price was named head
coach of Texas University foot
ball team this weekend. Price
had been line coach at Texas.
Given the hot-spot coaching
post for two years starting Jan. 1
at 12 thousand dollars a year,
Price recognized he had a tough
job cut out for him.
He left for Nashville before
reporters could reach him for
comment. He will scout Tennes
see, Texas' Cotton Bowl oppo
nent, in its battle with Vander
bilt. Coach Price was promoted to
the top position, yielded by Blair
Cherry, on the unanimous rec
ommendation of the University
Athletic Council and by unani
mous vote of the regents at
tending the meeting.
Athletic Director Dana X.
Bible, whose advice to the Ath
letic Council had much to do
with Price's selection, commend-'
ed the 42-year-old Texas gradu
ate with these words:
"Texas is facing tough sched
ules in the future, but, if every
one interested in the university
will work as hard as Ed, there
certainly will be a lot of scor
ing, a lot of touchdowns, a lot
of victories, and a lot of credit
reflected on Texas."
