Weir Counts Heavily On Frdsh
To Give Cinder Squad Depth
" By CORK BIEMOND
Sports Staff Columnist
Rumor has it that this game of golf is a wonderful opportunity in
disguise for coeds. Not only do its devotees develop superb muscular
coordination and a beautiful suntan, (or burn) but they meet the
most interesting people on golf courses.
Supposedly the winner of a match completes the prescribed
course In the least number of strokes, bet I am here to tell you that
it isn't always so. It has happened in a number of cases that the
highest score has won, to wit and viz.
Recently I was party to a fine foursome of persons who decided
to play a round of golf. The party consisted of two college men and
two gals. The men were excellent golfers and the girls were not too
skilled at the game.
The girls, however, were playing for much larger stakes than
was visibly apparent at first glance.
One of the young ladies, an attractive blonde, was obviously in
need of some instructions. It. of course, was only natural for our
hero to offer help to this young lady by demonstrating how to hold
the ciuo properly ana now to swing it lor best results.
After some valiant attempts on the part of the fair lady, it be
came obvious that she was leading; up to something- of a slightly more
serious nature. The natural result of this game was of rourse an
other session at golf, and a follow up coke-date.
Strangely enough this disarmingly simple pattern developed into

general and the Nebraska team
A gymnastic meet involves six
events. Each team can have three
men entered in each of the six
events, which consist of the side
horse, the high bar, parallel
bars, rings, tumbling, and the
trampoline. The events are run
off in this order.
Each of the gymnasts per
forms one original exercise.
This must be his cvn idea.
The performer is then judged
by three judges on three points:
form, continuity, an difficulty.
Judging on this basis, the judges
award individual points to each
man. High point man is the
winner of the event.
To get a team champion, the
individual winners are given
team or placement points. These
points are awarded as follows:
six for first, four for second,
three for third, two for fourth,
and one for fifth place. The team
with the highest placement total
is the winner of the meet. These
placement points are also used as
criteria for award-gymnastics let
ters. The requirement for a letter
at Nebraska is 45 points.
Coach Geier will have four
lettermen back from last year.
The numeral winners are Ira
Epstein, Paul Hughes, Bob Yar
wood and Jerry Tnbbs. These
men will be the core around
which the 51-5? squad will be
built. Geier hopes o have eight
on the team.
The squad will choose its cao-

The hardies, which have been
a Nebraska strong point in past
years, will be in the capable
hands of lettermen Don Bedker
and Dan Tolman. When the foot
ball season ends Dick Westln,
sophomore, will also report for
duty as a hurdler. .
In the absence of Jones, mono
