Scarlet Drop Deeper Into
Loop Cellar as Cats Romp
Nebraska's cagers took a les-
eon in basketball artistry here
last night, a lesson that cost them
a 50-79 decision. Kansas State,
still riding undefeated atop the
Big Seven conference, walloped
the Huskers with a smooth, flaw
less brand of basketball.
Nebraska managed to grab the
lead by a 1-0 couat after both
outfits missed five free-throws

gain a 3-3 tie with four anri a

the Husker faithful, they too
played terrific basketball.
The Kansas outfit netted six
quick markers and then matched
Nebraska's output until the score

Finish First Drills
By John Re?o
(Staff Member Snprts Writer.)
At "Little Florida" (the Husk
ers' new Field House), home of
the University of Nebraska varsity
baseball squad, all aspiring pitch
ers and catchers have been going
through light conditioning drills
the past week before settling
down to the task of getting their
pitching arms in shape.
while head baseball coach
Tony Sharpe ' continues working
with the Freshmen baskeball
team, assistant coach "Ozzie" Os
sino has been putting the. boys
through the proverbial mill. Os
sino is a master in the art of
pitching, so to the many inexper
ienced moundsmen he will be
worth, his weight in gold.
No Predictions .
As to the strength or weakness
between the mound and home
plate this season, Sharpe and Os
sino are reluctant to predict any
thing. In the hurling department,
there are only two boys, Dick
Curley of Greg and Del Kopf of
Lexington, who have had some
varsity experience and even here
the experience is limited.
Curley looked great against
Washington University last year,
showing a very effective wide-
breaking curve, and a hopping
fast ball. With a little more self-
confidence, Dick could come
along strong this year.
After Kopf s brilliant perform
ance against a respectable Kan
sas State team in the final game
last season, it is hoped that he

left by the loss of Linus Vrbka.
Optimism in McCormick
The greatest source of optim
ism on the basis of last year's
performances lies in "Pinky" Mc
Cormick of Silver Creek. McCor
mick has the makings for becom
ins one of the top chuckers in
Nebraska baseball history, and if
his -ailing arm heals sufficiently
he will probably receive Sharpe's
nod for the tough ones
Behind the plate, also, the big
problem to be faced is inexper
ience. The loss of Tom Novak, a
top receiver and power hitter,
left a wide gap which will be dif
ficult to fill. With a man of No
vak's caliber behind the plate,
the handicap of an inexperienc
ed mound crew would be greatly
Bob Lohrburg of Lincoln and
Bob Steinberger of Schuyler ap
pear as the most likely prospects
at this time. Another lad that
bears watching is Nick Adduci.
Although the Husker footballer
hasn't caught since his high
school days, it is hoped that after
the cob webs are shed he will
prove to be a valuable receiver.

And that test is . . .
