Buffs Lose
Two in Last
Few Minutes
Coach H. B. (Bebe) Lee is
spending his time this week
trying to figure out how to keep
his Colorado basketball team
from running out of gas in the
closing minutes of the game.
Colorado plays Colorado A&M
twice this weekend.
The Buff basketeers dropped
two close verdicts in the Utah
Invitational "double-header" at
S t Lake City last weekend.
Utah State recovered to topple
Cciorado, 46-43, in the first game
and Utah out-lasted the Buffs
in the second contest, 63-60. The
tourney was the first outing of
the season for Colorado.
"oth, losses to the Utah teams
were due to lack of team depth
and experience.
Buffaloes Fade
After leading at the half, 23
2", the Buffaloes rolled to a
36-1 1 lead over the Utah Staters
bjfore things started slipping.
Tie Utags got hot and surged
a tad to 39-36. Colorado never
rejained the lead as they failed
to hit in the last six minutes
while the Aggies stalled their
way home.
Frank Gompert, 6-4 sophomore
forward, Bill Clay, letterman
center, and Jim Armatas, 5-10
letterman guard, led the Colo
rado scoring. Gompert was high
man with 11 points on five field
goals .and a free throw. Clay
and Armatas each tallied 10
Utah blasted away early to
move ahead of the Buffs in the
second-evening fray. Before the
contest was over, three Colorado
first-stringers were benched by
the foul route: Armatas, Clay and
Kenny Koop, 6-4 sophomore
No Reserves
The Buffs were unable to mus
ter enough adequate reserves to
overcome the loss of their first
Ftring floormen but still made
h battle of it before losing the
three-point decision.
Gompert again led the Colo
rado scorers. He tallied six field
goals and three gratis shots for
15 points. Roger Stokes, two
year letterman forward, totaled
12 points.
Colorado did not play the
Colorado A&M cage squad in last
year's scheduling but the games
this weekend are expected to be
hot ones.
The first tilt, Friday night,
finds the Buffs going to the
Aggies home floor in Ft. Collins.
Saturday night Colorado hosts
A&M in the Boulder fieldhouse.
Champ Easton
When Herb Semper, KU's
barrel-chested distance ace, cap
tured the NCAA cross-country
title the other day, it marked the
third time in the meet's ten year
old history that Coach Bill Easton
has produced a champion.
At Drake, KU Coach Easton
developed Fred Feiler, who won
the title in 1944 and 1945 over
the same East Lansing coifrse.
Semper, who is blind in his
right eye, the result of a child
hood accident, got a major assist
from a long-time rival and
friend, Michigan State's Warren
Dreutzler. Trailing the Jayhawk
redhead only 35 yards a half
mile from the tape, Dreutzler
kept his rival from taking a
wrong turn. "Left, Herb, left,"
the Spartan captain shouted
when Semper started down a
pathway dredged out by a snow
plow. Herb immediately swung
back on the course to win by
25 yards.
Bob Karnes, great Kansas dis
tance runner of the past four
years didn't enjoy the same luck
' in 1947. Leading only a quarter
mile from the finish, the Over
brook Flyer took a wrong turn
and wound up fifth.
Only a junior, Semper already
hag few titles left to seek. He
set records in both the Big Seven
Indoor and Outdoor conference
meets last year, won the Fall
two mile title last month and the
National Junior AAU 5,000 meter
crown last June. He finished
third in the NCAA two-mile In
0:15 0, fastest time every un
ravelled by a Jayhawk distance

Six Games on Tap
For Cage Inaugural
The curtain goes up today on
the 1950-51 Intramural basket
ball season, and judging from the
first day's schedule it promises
to be one chucked full of sur
prises. For the teams this year
seem to be more evenly matched
than ever before.
The top game of the evening
will be the Phi Delta Theta-Al-pha
Tau Omega contest. The
Taus are defending All-Fraternity
and All-University champs
and the Phi Delts were one of
the league titlists last year. By
coincidence, it was this same
ATO team that knocked the Phi
Delts out of the post-season play
offs last year, and the Phi Delts
are out to avenge that defeat to
night. The Taus will again rely heav
ily on the services of Mack Rob
inson, stellar guard, and the. two
Jones', Hobe and Knox. The Phi
Delts will counter with such boys
as Farmer, Battey, Roper, Heck-
enuvely, and Graef.
Another match will pit an im
proved Sigma Alpha Epsilon
team against Sigma Nu, which
finished second in All-University
ratings last year. Although
they didn't reach the Fraternity
playoffs, the Sig Alphs, paced
by big Don MacArthur, played
steady ball throughout the sea
son and with a few breaks could
have been title contenders.
Nu's Offensive
The Sigma Nu's, sporting one
of the best offensive teams on
the campus, started slow but at
the end of the season were al
most unbeatable. If they can
continue where they left off last
year, they will be hard to stop.
Delta Upsilon and Kappa Sig
ma meet in another game that
promises to provide some thrills,
for very little is known about
either team other than the fact
that both are supposed to be
vastly improved over last year.
Phi Gamma Delta, the surprise
To Attend Meet
NUCWA board members will
represent the University at the
Nebraska Collegiate World Af
fairs institute Saturday, Harold
Peterson, NUCWA president, an
nounced Tuesday.
The fnsttiute, which will be
attended by delegations from 15
Nebraska colleges, is being held
to organize a state-wide college
world affairs organization.
At the same time advisers for
the visiting world affairs groups
will meet together to solve prob
lems which they have encount
ered In their field.
The Saturday meetings will be
held at the Union. Between 75
and 100 delegates are expected.

With the winter sports season
upon us, the average University
fan will get more than his share
of watching his favorites in com
petition. Besides basketball, now
foremost in everyone's thoughts,
the Cornhusker faithful will
have swimming, indoor track,
gymnastics and wrestling to
which to turn for excitement.
Basketball, under the able di
rection of Coach Harry Good, has
already sprung into action. The
Husker cagers have two of sched
uled 23 contests behind them
and currently are sporting a .500
The Gophers of Minnesota took
them into camp in their season
opener by a 55-41. score while
the Huskers bounded back in
their next fray, routing North
west Missouri Teachers College
to the tune of 61-39.
Four-Game Trip
The cagers are off on a four
game road trip this Friday which
calls for two battles with the
University of Washington at
Seattle on Friday and Saturday
and games with the Universities
of California and Santa Clara at
San Francisco on Monday and
Tuesday evenings.
Twelve Big Seven games are
on tap for the Good-men not
contributing valuable points from
team of last year, faces a good
Beta Sigma Psi team in what
promises to be a thriller all the
way. The Phi Gams reached the
semi-finals of the All-Fraternity
playoffs last year and have prac
tically that same aggregation
back again this year. The Beta
Sigs didn't reach the playoffs last
year, but nevertheless fielded a
strong team.
AGR's Improved
Alpha Gamma Rho, which fin
ished far down the list in league
standings last year, gives early
indications of fielding a potent
team this season and their first
outing will be with a good Sigma
Chi club. The Sig Chi's played
a firehouse brand of ball last
year that kept the opposition
alert at all times.
Another game which should
prove a thriller is the Delta Tau
Delta-Sigma Phi Epsilon clash.
The Delts were rated best in All
University standings for the first
half of last season, only to suffer
a couple of heartbreaking de
feats at the close of league play
which put a damper on their
title aspirations. The Sig Eps,
led by center Jim Walsh, played
the Phi Delts to a standstill in
league play, but lost to these
same Phi Dflts in a playoff for
the league title. . ,

A pair of University of Ne
braska standout gridders Mon
day night received and accepted
invitations to play with the West
team in the Shrine East-West
football game in San Francisco's
Kezar stadium Dec. 30.
Tackle Charley Toogood and
quarterback Fran Nagle will
represent the Huskers in the an
nual classic, proceeds of which
go to the' Shriners Hospital for
crippled children.
Toogood, a former All-State
prep star from North Platte, this
year was named to the All-Big
Seven first team. He also re
ceived the honor in 1949 and
1948, and was named on Inter
national News Service's All
Midlands team this year. He's
been a mainstay of the Nebraska
line the pasts four years.
Nagle, one of the Big Seven's
top passers, also gained All-Big
Seven recognition. Following
the Nebraska-Oklahoma game,
Sooner Coach Bud Wilkinson had
high praise for Nagle.
Best By Wilkinson
"He's the best I've seen this
year by a big margin," Wilkin
son 'said. "His selection of plays
against us was fine and he is
one of the best passers I've seen,"
he added.
The West Lynn, Mass., signal
caller first played football un
der Coach Bob Davis at the Uni
versity of Massachusetts, coming
to Nebraska following Davis' ac
ceptance of a position on the NU
coaching staff. Like Toogood,
he's been a standby during his
Husker career.
