The star-studded Alumni cage
crew will be lavored to take a
second straight victory over the
varsity when the two teams meet
Saturday night at 7:30 in the
j-iast year the Alums were
forced to go all out in order to
gain a 64-61 victory even though
they were favored by 20 points.
The main headache for Coach
Harry Good will come in the
form of skyscrapers Milton "Bus"
Whitehead and Bob Pierce.
Whitehead measures 6-9 while
Pierce stands 6-6. v
Both men are among the all
time Nebraska greats. White
head set a new seasonal record
of 360 points during the 1949-50
season, but Pierce bettered this
mark by 24 points last season.
They are also highly effective
in the rebounding ano aeiense
departments. Whitehead played
amateur basketball wim tne
Phillips Oilers last season, and
Pierce will graduate this June.
The guard positions will be
well manned by Joe Brown, who
is with the Standard Oil com
pany in Grand Island, and Neal
Mosser, basketball coach at Oma
Other grads who will be on
hand for the contest are Bob
Gates, assistant coach at Omaha
Holy Name; Anton L.awry, coacn
at Cairo; Bob Schleiger, assist
ant coach at Omaha South; Don
MacArthur, freshman law stu
dent; and Bob Cech who is still
Members of the 1950-51 team
who will play against their old
teammates are Paul iupper, uar
rell Brandenberg and Jess Sell.
Good said there -,re still some
other players who nave not an
swered his invitations to partici
pate in the game.
Five lettermen win spars uiu
varsity cause. They are Jim Bu
chanan, Fort wayne, mo.; joe
Good, Lincoln; Bob Mercier, Lin
coln; Bud Ward, Plainfield, Ind.;
and Norman Wilnes, North Platte.
Backing this group up will be
a host of freshmen who are get
ting their first taste of varsity
ball. But Good does not consider
his frosh team as outstanding.
Frosh Add Strength
Some of the players who may
add definite strength to the var
sity are Jim Abernathy, 6-1 for
ward from Scottsbluff, Don Web
la.; Fred Seger, 6-2Ms guard from

Omaha; Bill Johnson, 6-7 cen

Other frosh who will bid for
varsity berths are Dale Bottom,
Norwood, Colo.; Mack Frymicr,
Albion, Ind,; Danny Kuska, Chad
ron; Pat Mallette, Uehling; and
Bennett Martin, Lincoln.
Squadmen from the 1950-51
team who will add depth and
experience next year are Jim
Snyder, Cecil Voils and Bob How
ey, Lincoln; Dean Brittenham,
Brady; Al Blessing, Ord; and Al
Benjamin, Milan, Mich.

Coach Good believes that Mer
cier and Buchanan should pro
vide him with two stellar guards
next year. Both men have a great
deal of ability and should im
prove with experience.
Joe Good could provide the
scoring punch in the future. He

The Husker coach asserts that
Nebraska's greatest need is for
more height and experience at
the center and forward positions.
Johnson will try to replace
Pierce at the pivot post. His main
asset is his height, 6-7. But he
still needs a lot of work on de
fense and rebounding.
No Make-up On
The two-game series between
the University of Nebraska and
Iowa State baseball nines will
not be rescheduled, Husker offi
cials have stated.
They said Big Seven rules pro-
! hibit making up of a series that
has been postponed .
The teams were scheduled to
play a double-header here Tues
day but rain forced the cancellation.

Battle 'Old Men'
By Shirley Murphy
The "youngHtcru" and the "old men" of Iowa State football
lire battling each other with a "war of nerves" before the big
vamity-alumni squabble Suturday night.
"We'll do things to those tackles of yours you never dreamed
of" is one warning flung out by the alumni team. The "old men"
refuse to give details, but smile in a satisfied way.
The "youngsters" retort with "Weeks will never get a puss
off all day." Coach Abe Stubcr hasn't overlooked the stars of
the 1930 team.
One thing seems certain the alums will be bigger than the
varsity. It isn't expected to be a weight advantage however. Gen
eral reports have it that many of the old stars are some 20
pounds above their college playing weights at the moment,
Acceptances arc still flowing in for participation In the game.
New play scries are being sent out each day on request from new
members of the squad.
The University of Oklahoma sponsors the biggest high school
bancball tournament in the world. Scvcnly-three teams entered
the 47th annual Intcrscholustlc baseball marathon for 1051. The
teams played slmultantously on six diamonds with 32 of the
Sooner varsity and freshmen players acting as "umpires. Base
ball noteworthy such as Carl Hubbell, Wllcey Moore and raul
and Lloyd Woner got their start in this tournament originating
in Norman bark in 1905.
Coach Abe Stubcr and his assliitants, Hurt Moore, Herb
Cormack and Bob Lfimoon have listed the longest lint of "players
of week" In Iowa State football as a result of one of the best
crirnrnages last week.
