Eighteen track men will re

twenty-third renewal of the Big
Seven outdoor track meet at Col

Coach Ed Weir's squad, with
injuries and service calls having
cut deeply into its ranks, is de

to walk off with its second
straight outdoor loop title.
Latest casualty on the Husker
list is Dan Tolman, Indianola,
who will not compete because of
a knee injury.

Kansas sorely needs this pair's
best punch to stake out a wind
fall in the running events, inas
much as field returns may be
slim. Last year at Lincoln, K. U.
placed third in the conference
with 83 V points, and 78 of this
total was amassed on the track.

much brighter this week. Unless

On the cinders, it's another
thing. Semper should be an even
bet against Mizzou's Bill McGuire
in the mile, and odds-on to de
fend his two-mile dynasty. As
for Greenwood's chances, hurdle
eggs can't be counted before their
hatched, but the smooth K. U.
stick specialist is a sound young
man on whom to rely.
Semper and Greenwood are the
only top -combination off the
same squad capable of cranking
out a double victory. Greenwood

Star Senior Athletes
Numerous in Big 7
By Shirley Murphy
Old seniors never die, they just fade away. , , . i
Big Seven senior athletes may fade away, but conference
records will never forget the feats they have accomplished.
One of Nebraska's noteworthy sophisticates (seniors, that is)
is Don Cooper, champion pole-vaulter. Cooper is the first col
legian to clear 15 feet out-of-doors in the vault. He holds the
world indoor vault record of 14-9 on a dirt runway. Cooper has
cleared the 14 foot bar, nine times.
Jayhawker Herb Semper has the title of greatest two-miler
in Big Seven history. The KU ace holds the Big Seven record in
this event, a record which even chalks us as being one of the na
Ernie Barrett of K-State paced his basketball team to Big
Seven conference champion's title. He and his teammates came
out second in the nation, while Barrett himself was Ail-American.
Among the outstanding senior sportsmen at Oklahoma is Harry
Moore. 'Moore was co-captain and star offensive center of the
Sooner football team. Sooners were Big Seven football champs
and rated top team in the nation. Moore is also all-conference
His high school coach said he'd never be a college jumper.
He just didn't have what it takes! Missouri's Laddie Stovall went
to college and really showed him. He is one of their best broad
jumpers and has neared 24 feet during his jumping career.
Billy Weeks is a senior star from Iowa State. He played quar
terback on the football team and gained recognition as one of the
best college passers in the nation last year. Weeks holds Big Seven
and national passing records. He received Ail-American honorable
Wayne Tucker is Colorado's all-conference basketball player.
He was this year's leading scorer with 288 points, and thusly an
all-time Buff great.
Many more Big Seven senior athletes rate recognition, too.
To all of them, we wish the best the future holds. Next year, other
conference stars will shine out as they did this year. We can look
forward to the feats of Clyde Lovellette, KU; Jim Buchanan, Ne
braska; Bob Brown, ISC; Elmer Creviston, K-State; Merwin HodeL
Colorado; Byron Clark, Missouri; and Sooner Bill Vessels.

Another chapter in the history
of Cornhusker athletics is rapidly
drawing to a close.
The only things that remain
now are the conference golf, ten

will be run off Friday and Satur
day plus a two-game baseball se

Nebraska has had a full year of
outstanding performers and out

Nebraska is very fortunate to
have as fine a grid mentor as
Glassford. We should do every
thing in our power to keep him
here for a long time.
The basketball team did not
fare so well as far as a high con

scoring record of 384 points.

Mantle had a .301 average and

The four standouts in the Na

five years on the Tigers' home

Both good dash-men, Vanet and
Clark have been troubled by leg
ailments. Vanet's occurred just
last week, while Clark pulled a
muscle just before the indoor Big
Seven meet, and hasn't run a
competitive race outdoors. He ran

Mizzou would field a solid squad.
The Tigers have enough depth
and talent to count in all but one
or two events. Their hurdling is
stacked four-deep, their distance
entries strong, and coverage in all
field events except the pole-vault
is quite capable.
