enough team-balance to win the

by many as the outstanding

Gridders Fool Around;
Play Sharp Ball
By Shirley Murphy
The basketball game between the red and green squads of the
Husker football team at the Missouri-fJebraska basketball half-time
showed the versatility of Glassford's bojs. Verl Scott of the
green squad controlled the board most of the time, while the
full court passes kept team members, referee and spectator's heads
going from one end of the court to the other. The greens emerged
victorious 19 to 15 in a ten minute period, remarkable consid
ering all the fooling around. . .
Burt Moore, Iowa State football line coach, swapped his grid
ders for bowlers this semester. He is teaching the largest bowling
class at ISC of 279 members single-handed. This is his first stab
at bowling instruction. Previous to this, he had taught only foot
ball and basketball. . .
Four Missouri gridders have been drafted by professional teams
for 1951 tryouts. They are: Guard John Kadlec by the Washing
ton Redskins; halfback Ed Stephens by the San Francisco 49ers;
halfback John Glorioso by the Philadelphia Eagles; and end Gene
Ackermann by the Chicago Cardinals...
A total of $72,611.57 has been paid to the Big Seven confer
ence by the University of Oklahoma from its receipts from four
football bowl games during the past five years, athletic director
Bud Wilkinson has disclosed.
The Sooners' check for $26,611.49, representing the confer
ence's cut from the 1951 Sugar Bowl game, went to Reaves Peters,
conference executive secretary, just recently. Oklahoma paid
$28,570.16 to the league from its 1950 Sugar Bowl game; $10,429.92
from its 1949 Sugar Bowl game and the minimum guarantee of
$5000 from its 1947 Gator Bowl receipts...
Colorado sponsors a sport novel to the Big Seven. This is var
sity skiing. The Buff team bolstered by the return to action of co
coach Jim Griffith, entered their third four-way ski meet last week
end. . .
Virgil Severns, holder of the Nebraska-Kansas State dual record
in the high jump, will not perform with the K-State squad at the
meet Wednesday at Lincoln because he is in Buenos Aires for
the Pan American games. His best jump this year is six feet
four and, five-eighths inches. The dual record mark, set by hfm
in 1950, is six feet five and five-eighths inches . . .
Charley Hoag, ace University of Kansas sophomore player, is
living up to a heritage at Lawrence. His uncle was member of
the cage squad back in the 1920's. He is carrying on the tradition
as a double football and basketball star. Charley was a leading
member of the Jayhawk backfield and has broken into Phog Allen's
basketball combination. . .
The same, Gene Ackermann, Missouri end who was drafted
by the Chicago Cardinals, finished the 1950 football season with a
three-year total of 1028 yards in pass receptions. This is a career
record at the University of Missouri. . .
Mizzou's distance ace, Bill McGuire, holds three all-time records
at the University of Missouri. Outdoors last year he ran a 4:10.7
mile against Kansas and a 9:16.7 two-mile in the Drake Relays. Best
indoor mile mark of 4:14.8 was recorded in the 1949 Illinois Tech
