conference has to offer when they
tangle with Missouri's red-hot
Tigers at the Coliseum tonight.
The Huskers' last three games
have been against Kansas State
(1st), Kansas (2nd), and Okla

going into Saturday night's acuon,
were tied with the Sooners in
third piace. Missouri bumped off
the second place Jayhawks, 39

Buchanan, one of the area's out

shot, is seventh high Big Seven
scorer. Buchanan has racked up
88 points in conference games for
a 12 plus average. Beyond Pierce
and Buchanan the Husker offer
little threat, although Joe Good

THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Ohio State students gave every
indication of keeping their repu
tation of being the nation's col
lege football hot spot Friday.
Athletic Director Dick Larkins
blasted big-time football, declar
ing "It's getting completely out of
hand. It's a Frankenstine. Foot
ball l killing itself."
Larkins, in turn, was blasted
by a group of Buckeye students
who still want Paul Brown for
Want Him Out
The students demanded the re
moval of Larkins, who, according
to a petition circulated on the
campus, "has personally been
bitterly opposed to Paul Brown
as head football coach."
Ohio State's Board of Trustees
will meet again this week to con
sider a man nominated for the
coaching job by screening com
mittees. The nominee is reported to be
Wayne Woodrow (Woody)
Hayes, now coach at Miami,
Student factions also sent let
ters and telegrams to Hayes
urging that he withdraw.
Larkins said he had read one 1
of the ouster petitions, but had
Taking cognizance of a resolu
tion passed by state representa
tives asking that all Ohio State
games be televised, Larkins said
he thought saturation of the
airways with football might be a
good thing for the game.
TV the Answer?
"Maybe television is the an
swer," he said. "Maybe it will
kill off football as we have it
today and we can start over and
build it up again without all this
overemphasis. Amputation is
sometimes the best cure."
"If we are forced to televise
next fall, well eventually have
crowds of 25 thousand and 35
thousand in the stadium."
"The resuU is inevitable.
When you have a drastic reduc
tion in gate receipts, other sports
which are supported by football

luminaries like Nebraska's Loyal

brawny endurance engine, out
of fifth place indoors, but was
disqualified in the process. He
gave Kansas leadoff leads in both
the indoor and outdoor mile re
lays, as the Jayhawkers nudged
out Nebraska for an important
second in the winter meet and
won the outdoor crown by inches
in a rank surprise.
Jones ran a highly creditable
:51.2 in nipping Schutzel last
week in Lincoln. The tiny Kan

KU's 6-9 scoring marvel, Clyde

the road to his second consecu
tive Big Seven individual scor
ing title. And he may exceed
even the blazing pace he estab
lished last year.
Through his first seven games
the All-American Alp has canned
170 digits, never hitting less than
18 against any conference foe.
This is good enough for a 50
point bulge over his nearest
rival, Colorado's Wayne Tucker,
and 17 tallies more than he col
lected at the same stage of the
league race last year. With five
games remaining, Lovellette
needs 107 points to match last
season's record outpour of 277
over the 12-game conference
This means accumulating an
average of 21.4 points per game
in his closing five. His current
league mark Is 24.2. Lovellette
needs 123 points in KU's last
seven games to equal his over
all output of 545 for his sopho
more season last winter. He
broke past 400 last Monday by
rimming 24 against Missouri to
raise his 18 game total to 422.

Nebraska tankers sank before
Iowa State by a score of 58 to 26

at the coliseum. Four new pool
records were established and
four Big Seven records were ex
ceeded. Buele Balderson stroked to
victory In the 200-yard back

new pool record. The old time
was 2:28.8 which Balderson made

event was Nebraska's only record
breaker in the Friday meet.
Eddie Craren copped diving

Sigma Chi upset the dope sheet
Friday night in intramural cage
play by dropping a "cold" Delta
Tau Delta outfit. The upset was
registered by the score 22-18.
The contest was a slow mov
ing affair all the way, the Delts
missing shot after the shot. The
Sigs, sensing a victory, played
a slow cautions game and
though they took much fewer
attempts at the hoop, they
made their shots count.
The Sigs jumped to a 6-4 first
quarterx lead and then were held
scoreless during the secona pe
riod while the Delts captured the
lead by a 8-6 score. Another
slow quarter produced a 12-12
tie going into the final stanza.
The tempo increased somewhat
toward? the end. The Sigs
grabbed the lead and maintained
it from there on in.
Jim Thomas hit for nine
points to lead the Sigs while

Tom Maine streaked past the
Big Seven standing and barely
clipped the pool record in the

set by Wilson of Michigan State
in 1948 which was 2:88.4.
Bob Brown, star tanker for
the Cyclones, gave the spectators
a sensational performance by

Marvin Grimm's 1947 pool rec
ord of 24 seconds and his own
1950 Big Seven shot of 23.7 sec
onds. Brown, one of best tankers in
the league, holds the American
record of 27.3 seconds for the
60-yard. The old record was 27.5.
Brown chalked up a time of 50 9
seconds for the 100-yard in the
National Collegiate meet at Illi
nois last week. World's record of
this event is 49.7 seconds.
The amiable Iowa merman said
he started his swimming career as
"teeney" boy. Now he is a col
lege junior majoring in journal
ism and making swimming rec
ords. Brown also aided the Cy
clone 440-yard relay team as
anchor man. With tank buddies,
LaBerge, Russ Thomas and
Schmidt, Brown helped break the
pool record of 3:44.6 set by Iowa
in 1947. The team swam to win
and bested the Big Seven topper
in the process. Time of the Cy
