minutes of football against Kan

The Iowa Staters have already
broken their record for touch
down passes In one season with
eleven money tosses breaking
the 1950 mark of ten.
In the Wayne game, young
Mann tied a record held jointly
by Ron Norman and Weeks by
tossing three touchdown passes.
Thus far this season, Mann ha6
made ten passes good for touch
downs to wipe out the mark set
by Weeks in 1950.
To show his versatility, the fab
ulous youngster from Spencer,
Iowa intercepted four passes last
Saturday in the Cyclones loss to
Assistant Sports fcrtltor
it is quite impossible for these fingers to type out a diagnosis for
a winning football team, but it does impress me, after my few
years of observation, that an essential characteristic of a winning
eleven is its desire to play football.
Some sihletes are born with this inherent characteristic and
desire for body contact and live for the fall months when they can
match their grit, prowess and football finesse against opposition
spurned by similar traits. :
Such an athlete is George Gohde. George is a handsome sophomore
at the University of Nebraska whose desire to play football deserves ber g
special praise auring ue pieseui unuiuaMi woms oncan..

The Iowa State passing coupled
with a substantial ground offen

reason for worry over the Husker

an "I don't give a damn attitude."
There are men who were not in possession of this football desire
we speak of; men in the same situation as George Gohde who quit
the game or went off to play for other schools. That's why you'll
not see names like Gasson, Anderson and Hoppens on any jNeorasKa
football grid roster.
To men like Levendusky. Sommers, Westih, Dale, Goll, and Tang-
dall whose spirits have likewise been undented for lending their serv
ices for B team games, is their much deserved credit due.
It wasn't too long ago that a pudgy 155 pound guard from Kimball
was wasting away his talent on the Nebraska Nubbins team. His
determination, desire and guts, landed him a starting berth of the
1950 scarlet team.
After his final year, Don Strasheim was awarded a place on the
all-conference football team and will go down in Nebraska
annuals as one of the finest lineman.
Let the Strasheim spirit guide you men and let us all hope that
