Coaches' Wives Maintain
Strong Interest in Athletics

University of Nebraska coaches'

and go to all the games they
JttoDDies ana interests vary
greatly, however. Mrs. Alma
Glassford is especiaHy interested
in tennis, swimming and her lit
tie son, Gary.
Mrs. Ann Good likes horseback
riding, golf, ping-pong and bridge
During the summer, the family
goes to Indiana to spend a vaca
tion swimming and fishing. Mrs.
Good rates one of three titles in
the sports world. She is either
the coach's wife or Joe's or
Larry's mother. Coach Good is
the University mentor and Joe a
varsity player. Larry is a high
Interior decoration is the main
interest of Mrs. Josephine Weir.
She collects antiques and is a
gardener, too. Mrs. Weir says
that a coach's wife becomes truly
interested in the boys that her
husband works with.
One bashful boy who frequently
visited the Weir's home didn't
feel as free to call out, "Hi Mom,"
like the other boys did when
they saw Mrs. Weir. The Weirs
tried very hard to make him feel
at ease, but he was just too bash
One day, Mrs. Weir went to
the train depot to meet the team
and her husband when they came
in. The bashful boy leaped off
the train and greeted Mrs. Weir
with "Hi Toots." He was as sur
prised as she.
"I didn't know anything about
baseball until I met Tony," said
Mrs. Ruth Sharpe. Now she, too,
loves the sport and attends every
game. Her interests center
around home and the children,
and sports at the University.
A coach's wife really gets to
know the boys on the team," she
said, "gets to meet and know
them." At one of the football
games, Mrs. Sharpe found a re
semblance to her husband, "That
boy kicks like Tony bats," she
cried, "straight up!"
Mrs. Helen Higgenbotham says
that any coach's wife's life is full

Mrs. Mary Ellen Franklin's
main interest is the children, but
she shares her husband s enthusi
asm for golf and is an ardent par
ticipant in the sport.
Sports, especially golf and
swimming, are hobbies of Mrs.
Judy Davis. She is a reading fan,
too. Her favorite type of books
include historical, romance and
adventure stories. Mrs. Davis is a
fairly new Lincoln resident. When
she first moved here, a salesman
appeared at the door trying to
sell a cemetery lot.
Said Mrs. Davis, "But my hus
band is a football coach and we
don't know how long we will be
The salesman smiled as if to
say, "That proves my point."
Mrs. Joan Prochaska is the only
one of the wive's that attended
the University with her husband.
As a result, she is very interested
in the University's sports.
Her husband and she have
many memories to share includ-;

to go to all the games and ner

Mrs. Hanscom Comments
"After 25 years, you should en
joy a sport," commented Mrs.
Hazel Hanscom. She does enjoy
sports and couldn't imagine her
husband doing anything else.
"Coach's wives hear many dif
ferent comments at games," she
saia, "ana think they're all a
joke." Mrs. Hanscom's other in
terests are painting silhouettes
and doing needle-point work.
Mrs. Helen Fife agrees that
many jokes are pulled in the
bleachers. In regard to her hus
band and his sport, she said,
"Once football is in their blood,
it's there to stay." She knits and
plays golf as hobbies.
This is Mrs. Genevieve Partin's
first year at Nebraska. She be
lieves that supporting her hus
band is the only part a wife can
play in his sport's career. Her
main interest is centered around
their small baby. She also likes
tennis, swimming, spectator sports
Mrs. Janet Clark is a earden
and antique enthusiast. She likes
Lincoln and likes snorts and at
tends every time she can. Sorry
to say, Mrs. Geier, Mrs. Lepley
and Mrs. Janetos could not be
reached at home. Probably they
would have shared the definite
likeof their husband's profession.

The Big Seven has-been
charged with "sacrificing all
ideals for which college athletics
are supposed to stand."
The accusation has been made
by Fritz Brnnecke, athletic di
rector of the Colorado School of
Mines. He also aimed it at the
Southeastern and Southwest conferences.
Dr. Earl Fullbrook, chairman
of the conference and dean of
the Nebraska college of business
administration, gave an answer
and an explanation to the
Brennecke termed "unorin-
cipled" a recent Big Seven deci
sion to allow board, room, books
and tuition fees and incidental
expenses not to exceed $15 a
month to athletes.
Dean Harry Carlson, athletic
director at the University of
Colorado, stated that the pay
ments would not exceed $75 a
month. He also said this would
be the top amount, and in all
probability Colorado would not
offer that much.
75 Offer Aid
In reference to what Bren
necke termed an "all-expense
scholarship" io athletes, he stated
"obviously there are many
schools which can not afford
this scholarship program. In fact
oi tne o4 colleges that sponsor
intercollegiate football, theia are
probably not more than 75 who
can carry such a financial
In addition to this Brennecke
asserted that "by legalizing the
all-expense scholarship the Big
oeven, ooutnwest ana other con
lerences will have to match it
or they will get only the athletes
oi mienor caliber."
In reply to thip Fullbrook an
swered that the scholarship pro
gram of the Big Seven would
not have "much, if any, effect,
on other colleges and universities
in the area." . ,
"The Big Seven felt it
establishing a maximum aid pro
gram, and that it might result
in less subsidization of athletes."
"After all, the primary con
cern of all colleges and universi
ties is scholastic achievement,
and it's a pretty well established
fact that a man can't give full
consideration to his scholastic
program, compete in athletics,
and earn his way all at the same

Against Drake on April 6, 7
By Marshall Kushner
Nebraska's baseballers will
open their 1951 baseball season
against the Drake Bulldogs Fri

The Huskers may not be used
to the brisk outdoor air as yet
"Monday was our first day
outside and we're trying to get
as acquainted as we can with
working outdoors," said Coach
The Husker diamond dazzlers
have been working out in the
fieldhouse for the past month.
Coach Sharpe has been sched
uling intra squad games to give
the boys the feel of actual play.
During these games, Sharpe has
been able to get a fairly good
idea of who he can call on for
duty this year.
Sharpe will open the initial
contest with Johnny Rego at the
hot spot corner. The third base
man will also act as lead off man
for the team.
Bob Reynolds will handle the
keystone sack and will bat sec
ond in the Nebraska lineup.
Bob Diers, swift centerfielder
gained this position and will bat
third in the lineup. Jerry Dunn
will patrol the left field gardens
and will take his place as clean
up man on the team.
Ray Mladovich will take the
initial sack, and Bill Fitzgerald
will play right field and will take
the fifth and sixth spots in the
Shortstop will be handled by
Bill Jensen, and Bob Lohrbere
will see starting duty behind the
plate. These boys will bat 7th
and 8th, respectively.
Sharpe plans to use three,
pitchers for the Drake game. H
will send Bill Anderson, Dick
McCormick, and Del Kopf for
three innings apiece. Sharpe
called his mound staff "a good
potential crew" but would know
more about them after they got
actual game experience. .
In the intra-squad games held
thus far, Mladovich, Dunn, Rego,
and Reynolds have shown con
siderable power at the plate.
Mladovich smashed a towering
home run Tuesday afternoon.
