MCK SHULL , . , . clouted his first home run of the year for the
Huskers at Wichita to help Nebraska to a 12-8 win.
17 Texas Relay Champions
Invade Kansas This Week
At least 17 Texas Relays cham
pions will follow the gold-medal
Harvest north to the twenty-sixth
Kansas Games In Lawrence April
This roster includes both the
Ixmghorn double individual win
ners, Darrow Hooper, Texas A
& M's mighty weight-heaver, and
f aui i'auikner Abilene Christian's
pole vaulter-javelin thrower.
Hooper, holder of the national
high school shot-put mark of
68-10, erected a new Texas rec
ord of 53-1 in his favorite event.
He also collected the discus at
148-9, thus establishing himself
as an early favorite in both events
Faulkner dethroned Ray Marek,
the defending Texas and Kansas
champion, in the javelin with a
cast of 192-64. Marek won here
last year at 205-43,.
Meeks and Hoskins
Other individual Texas winners
scheduled to go after more glory
here are Charles Meeks of
Texas, who edged Kansas State's
Herb Hoskins for the broad jump
gonfalon; Hayden Fields, of Howard-Payne,
in the 100; and Jerry
Lemon, Oklahoma, and Jack
Simpson, Texas A & M, who tied
Faulkner for the pole vault crown
at 13-9.
This gang, along with most of
the relay teams, set the stage at
Austin for a revenge motif at
Lawrence, Some of the favorites
absorbed a lacing at Texas, and
their subsequent improvement,
plus juggling of various baton
quartets, is certain to unfold a
raft of spirited duels in the lee
of Mt. Oread.
Slight Edge
Hoskins, for instance, will take
dead aim at Meeks, the Southwest
conference king. The latter won
by of an inch at Austin and
the -winning distance of 29 3
"was -far below what the stream
lined K-Stater usually aecom-,
plishes. His winning leap at
Texas last year was 24-10y.
He reached 25-2M against Kan
sas in a dual last spring, and
whipped Meeks in the Southwest
Big Seven dual at 24-2. He was
fourth in the nationals at 24-8.
Marek is another potential
avenger. Faulkner, the Texas con
ference champ, didn't come close
to him in any of the three major
Midwest relay carnivals last year.
Relay Duels
There'll be some blood-letting
in the relays too. This likely will
be featured by double duels be
tween Arkansas and Kansas in
the distance hauls, and Oklahoma
and Oklahoma Aggies in the mid
dle distance trials.
KU and Arkansas traded blows
at Austin, the Jayhawks winning
the Distance Medley in the ex
cellent time of 10:14.4, just two
and a half seconds more than the
meet record, while the Razor-
Twenty-One Alums
Gather for Game

Iowa State alumni are really showing a big interest in the varsity-alumnae
game coiqihg up May 5. Twenty-one alums have in

Cyclone varsity,
Jim Iverson, third leading scorer for Kansas State's Big Seven
and Western NCAA champion basketball teahi, has had little time to
relax since the close of the' court season. Besides being the number
one pitcher on the K-State baseball team, the Wildcat junior has
been elected to the Student Council, one of the college's highest stu
dent offices. .
Colorado baseball coach Frank Prentup, a very rugged individual
whose nickname, "Chief," is a tribute to his Indian ancestry, has had
his dignity considerably impaired recently by Dr. Forrest B. "Phog"
Allen, notorious Kansas university basketball coach. .
"Phog" took to calling Prentup many years his junior, "Prentie,w
and the pseudonym was overheard by Prentup's colleagues at Colo
rado, who have since then made the gymnasium of the Buff campus
ring with "Hey, Prentie."
Lonny "Barrymore" Chapman, two-miler at Oklahoma in 1947,
is a successful player in Elizabeth B. Ginty's new comedy, "Missouri
Legend." Chapman is a graduate of the Sooner drama school.
Chapman portrays Jesse James, the Missouri outlaw who robbed
banks by day and attended Baptist prayer meeting by night. Vernon
Rice of the New York Post writes about his actions, "I doubt if those
who came in contact with Jesse's revolver found his as boyishly
charming as Lonny Chapman makes him, nor quite as likable, but
after all Jesse is the hero of 'Missouri Legend. Under Chapman's
thoroughly-winning portrayal, if you had a bank to be high-jacked,
Jesse would be the man you would want to do it."
No wonder the former Sooner runner fits the part so neatly. He
is a native Missourlan.

according to news received by the
University Agricultural Extension
Four youths, two boys and two
girls, from Nebraska have been
awarded the all-expense trips to

that can come to a 4-H club
member in Nebraska. They are:
Calvin Kuska of Omaha, Law

Alene Oschner of Madison and
Ruth Moritz of Lexington.
William C. "Bill" Smith, as

intelligent way to judge the mildness of a cigarette.
It's the sensible test ... the 30-Day Camel Mildness Test,

Alpha Tau Omega 37-36 to take
the team title and trophy.
Cech and Curran engaged in a
terrific battle before the Sig Alph

was his second runnerup in the
I-M badminton tourney in two
years. He reached the finals last
year also but was deprived of the
title by the independent whiz,

Curran, however, went far
enough to give the Phi Delts the
