The number six team in the
university, Phi Delta Phi,
strengthened their hold on first
place in league XI by racing
past a good Alpha Sigma Phi
outfit, 40-22. The win bootts the
PDPhi record to 4-0.
The first quarter was a low
scoring affair from which the
victors emerged with a 5-4 lead.
A 19-point burst in the second
period while holding the Alpha
Sigs to eight gave the PDPhi s a
comfortable margin with which

Dave Mackey will replace Ed

has been facing the best of op

having trouble with them. Dave's

Chi's sported a 4-3 record.
The farmers jumped to an
early lead and stretched it to a
13-7 first quarter margin. The

18-10 at intermission. Even in
the third period the AGR's pos
sessed the upper hand, but it

had no comment.
Nat. Holman, coach of City Col

NCAA champions, said he didn't
know much about the Chicago
plans although his team played
at the stadium last week. .
"Nobody approached me of
ficially while we were out there,"
Holman said. "If other consid
erations were equal, some Mid
western and Western schools
might prefer to play in Chicago
because of travel situations.

Tigers to Present
Test of NU Track
The University of Nebraska
track team will meet its toughest
competition to date this Saturday
when Coach Ed Weir takes his
tracksters to Columbia to battle
the Missouri Tigers. The Tigers
perennially turn out one of the
strongest outfits in the Big Seven
or any other conference.
The Husker trackmen, riding
the crest of three straight dual
wins will find the going even
tougher than it was against the
defending indoor champions,
Kansas, last Saturday night when
NU downed the Jayhawkers,
The Tigers boast of 14 letter
men returning with at least one
spotted in each event except the
880. Coach Tom Bott's cindermen
seem to be shaping up into an
other league champion outfit. .
The biggest headache for the
Tigers is in the shot-put and pole
vault. The Huskers also are weak
in the shot, but sport perhaps the
two best vaulters in the league
in Don Cooper and Leonard KehL
Coach Botts feels real good
about six events in which his
entries are the same as last year,
spiced here and there by promis
ing sophomores. This is true in
the 60-yard dash, mile, two-mile,
high jump, high hurdles and
It's no secret, either, that the
Tigers with Captain Bill Mc
Guire, Bob Fox, and sophomore
Pete Gallup leading the mara
thoners hope to cut loose their
Sunday punch in the distance
