twin wins over Kansas State and
over Missouri. The Husker con

Kansas State and the University
of Kansas. The Huskers' lone loss

ship. Both games start at 3 p.m.

Colorado that saw the Buffs fall
twice to the Nebraskans. The
hosts forced the Huskers all the

E(U Frosh Trackmen
Rated Best in History
By Shirley Murphy
Kansas University's freshman track team is the postal in
door champions of the Big Seven conference, according to the final
tabulations of Coach Bill Easton.
This track team is rated as the best in the history of the KU
freshman squads. The meet was a comparison by mail of the
times, heights and distances of the freshman who have not been
eligible for varsity competition because of a conference ruling.
The Jayhawkers took the meet with 57 points to Colorado's
52 as runnerup. Oklahoma scored 37 and two-thirds points; Mis
souri, 15; Nebraska, 13 and one-third; and Iowa State, five.
K-State did not participate.
Colorado netmen have been playing a fine season. The Buffs
defeated Iowa State 6-1, and Nebraska, 7-0. Their most recent
game was against Colorado college. In the meet against the col
lege last year, the Buffs were defeated 7-2. Thus Colorado col
lege gained the honor of being the only Colorado school to score
points against the Buffs in 1950.
Ray Wauthier as coach of the K-State baseball team is fin
ishing out his first year as a K-State mentor. He is an experi
enced coach as well as an experienced player. He began par
ticipating in baseball seriously when he played with several
ami-professional teams around Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Dur
ing World War II, his baseball career took place in the Marine
corps. He had previous college work that made It possible to fin
ish school after his discharge within one year. He was infielder
on his college team and coaehed a boy's team at the same time.
He was head coach at Iowa Wesleyan until 1949 when he moved
to Kansas State.

roiling Monday night with six
games on tap. They were all con
tests that had been slated for the
previous Monday but held up by
rain. Tuesday saw the completion
of the frat first round.
Darre!l Heiss clouted a mighty
grand-slam home run In the sixth

seven-inning fray, the Pi Kaps
were holding a sum 6-5 lead.
Dave Jones pitched all the way
for the Aggies in winning. He
allowed eight hits, struck out
two and walked three over the

him with a 5-0 lead after three
and a half innings, but he rah
into serious trouble in the Pi Kap

for four tallies in that frame and
went ahead for the first time in
the fifth with two more runs.

Pi Kaps, giving up 11 hits and
walking three. He struck out

way for the victors and allowed
but four hits in the five inning
game. The Ag delegation bunched
three of these in the fourth to
score three of their four tallies.!
Skalla struck out four and
Landgren hurled the first two
innings for the losers and then
gave way to Scheerger who was
only a little more effective. The
Delts clouted the two hurlers for
11 safeties. "
Kennedy led the harrage with
three hits. Goth, Paynich and
Richardson all collected two, one
of Goth's was for the circuit.
Linscott bagged a triple for the

Fisher for the Phi Delts. No
more could be obtained from the
Zeta Beta Tau got only two
hits in their first round contest
compared to six for Pioneer

count. The Zates took advantage
of several walks and errors on
the part of the Pioneer fielding
Pioneer Jumped to a 2-0 lead
in the first Inning and then
watched the ZBT's take the lead
with three runs in their half of
the initial frame. The losers
added two more in the second to
regain the lead once again.

ers in the third stanza and
stayed in the lead from there on
out. They added another in the
fourth and then clinched things
in the fifth with three more.

Baker, sprinter; Herb Hoskins,
high broad jumper; and Virgil

Irving Thode in the KS-KU in

shape for the Husker duel. Sev
erns has cleared 6-7 during his
tenure at Kansas State.
Bob Barchus and Jack James

Nebraskan Rex Barnev of th
Brooklyn Dodgers has been sent
deep in the heart of Texas in
hopes that we will find his pitch

Omaha" has found it impossible
to find the plate during his en

He finally requested to be
placed on the voluntary retired

26-year-old right hander to Fort
Worth of the Texas League.
"The first step down is a hard

first step up."
