THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
By Jim Petersen
Staff Sports Writer
This Saturday Memorial stadi
um will be the scene of the sec
end annual Varsity-Alumni foot
ball game, which is one of the
features of the All-Sports Day.
The game will start at 1:30
p. m., and it should be a thriller
from the opening kickoff to the
final gun. Coach Glassford Is go
ing to employ a four-platoon
system instead of the usual two
platoon system. The four pla
toons will consist of two offensive
units and two defensive units. If
the same spring squad is still
around next fall, he plans to use
this four platjon system against
the University's opponents.
This game will climax spring
training, which will end next
Wednesday. Spring training was
previously scheduled to last til
. a week from Saturday.
Coach Glassford explained the
shortened drills, by stating: "The
squad has been faithful at prac
tice and worked hard."
When asked about the current
freshmen players Glassford said,
"The Freshmen have pleased us.
They are willing and they are
working hard at it"
Good Ball Game,
"It will be a good ball game.
The Alumni has a lot of experi
ence, which will be a good test
for our boys.
"The big problem with the
Varsity, is the lack of experi
ence. They need a lot of work.
We haven't got the polish yet,
but we expected to show a great
deal of improvement by next
The boys have been working
hard, and have been putting a
lot of effort into it"
While Glassford will employ
all four platoons, he stated that
he would wait until Saturday to
decide which unit would get the

matched and all will see plenty

than-noothing f ieldhouse annex.
To date the teams has been
restricted to a couple of intra
squad games and on the whole,
the results were encouraging. The
keystone combination of Jensen
at short and Reynolds on second
looks very strong.
Reynolds around the second
base sack has made much im
provement in his play. Difficul
ties with the important double
play which he had in earlier ses
sions appear to be ironed out. His
ability to get rid of the ball
quickly for the twin kill will be
an effective defensive weapon.
The pitching department has
had little opportunity to show its
stuff, so a question mark remains
Al Benjamin, a big righthander
from Michigan, has looked very
imnressive during his brief hurl
ing performances. The Michigan
lad, after suffering from a rag
arm. came up with a good fast
ball and a back-breaking cure.
