Drake on Nebraska Diamond
Coach Tony Sharpe's Univer
sity baseball team makes its 1951
debut at 3 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m.
Saturday when it meets Drake
University in a two-game series
On the Husker home lot
The Cornhuskers, defending
Big Seven champions, will be
without the services of ten let

However, Sharpe will have
veterans Bob Diers of West
Point, Bill Jensen of Denver,
Kay Mladovich of Omaha and
Del Kopf of Lexington to bolster
the sophomore studded squad he
has assembled this spring.
Pitching is Mentor Sharpe's
biggest worry right at the mo

Sharpe believes he will have a
fair defensive club, especially
down the middle, with Grand

AROUND THE LOOP...
Lovellette Rated First
In Final Tabulation
By Shirley Murphy
The Daily Kansan's final scoring tabulation shows, to nobody's
surprise, that little Clyde Lovellette took the lion's share of con
ference title's this year in basketball
Lovelette tops in field goals (245), personal fouls (97), total
points (548), and scoring average (22.8). He left the free throws to
Marcus Freiberg from Oklahoma who scored 147.
George Hess of Iowa State made the biggest late season climb.
He moved into 19th place in final tabulation. Bob Pierce of Ne
braska stands in second place of the list with a 16.7 average. Husker
Jim Buchanan is fourth in tabulations with a 12.9 average.
"Most valuable wrestler" title at Iowa State goes to Bob Wilson,
137-pounder. The honor was founded this year by Walter Smith, a
former conference champ, who offered an engraved silver ring to go
with the title.
Wilson was conference king last year in the 137-pound division.
A junior this year, he captained the team and wound up second in
the conference. He received the title by election of the freshman and
varsity wrestling squads. Wilson was second in individual scoring
with 23 points.
The award was based on the team spirit, wrestling skill, good
sportsmanship and ability to "pat teammates on the back when
spirits were low" that Wilson showed throught the season.
Bud Wilkinson, Oklahoma football coach, is considering using an
all -sophomore secondary defense this fall composed of Larry Grigg
and Billy Bookout at defensive halves and Jack Ging at safety. They
lost their secondary of last year with Tommy Gray and Ed Lisak at
defensive halves and Buddy Jones, Ail-American safety.
Ernie Barrett of K-State was one of the big factors in the West's
decisive victory over East in basketball.
Three life passes were issued
this week to Robert Cerv, basket
ball and baseball; Elroy Gloy
stein, baseball, and Dick Geog

Harold "Red" Grange, the "gal

most a unanimous choice for one
of the halfback slots on the all

The fabulous runner with the

704 points which was more than
other such standouts as Jim
Thorpe, the old Carlisle Indian;

Johnny Lujack; Michigan's Tom
Harmon and Willie Heston and
Chicago's Jay Berwanger re

he was graduated he had scored

yards rushing and 643 passing.

THE BENCH WARMER
By Bob Banks
Assistant Sport Editor
April Fools Day is over. So
Harry Filley went back to his
stable, the board of regents re
turned to their accustomed duties,
Clyde Lovellette is still 6 feet,
nine inches tall and the gambling
case was solved.
Best of all, Bobby Reynolds re
considered the KU offer and de
cided to stay in Cornhuskcrland.
Likewise, the sports staff, after
racking its brain power to the
limit for corny ideas, can resume
a usual pace. All of our budding
Grantland Rices thought it was a
lot of fun, but everyone chimed

First thing' on our docket to
day concerns Phog Allen's state
ment that he was a victim of
"bad journalism" concerning his
story on an Eastern school offer
ing Bob Reynolds $10,000 and a
Cadillac to come and play for it.
"Bad journalism" maybe so,
maybe no. But it is not too likely
that a wire service with the repu
tation which the Associated Press
has could deliberately twist and
distort a story to the degree which
the eternal Allen claims.
We do not claim to be in the
same crystal-ball-gazing league
with Lolly Parsons, but we will
bet that a forthcoming grid movie,
"The Hero," will be just as much

Just a few months earlier an

Wonder what Davis has to say
Last year just before the major
league baseball campaign began
a sports magazine carried an ar
