A successful stall in the last

scrappy Huskers with the win.
The victory, a fine team effort,
snapped a seven-came Nebraska

Jim Buchanan led the Husker

able assistance from Paul Fred

playing his best game at home.
Also deserving special laurels
were Charley Ott who dropped

Assistant Sports Editor
The advent of the New Year could not dim the resounding
shouts of protests leveled against the current avalanche of action
taken against the over-emphasis of college footbalL
Granted, football might be getting a little out of hand. But
let us not completely sacrifice the many beneficial attributes of
the sport that many or the de-emphasirers are entirely over
looking. The Big Seven officials got together and decided that they could
help in this, what is practically, "junking" of the gridiron sport by
placing a damper on conference teams to compete in any form of
post season activity. i
For football teams, this means no more bowl classics; For
baseball teams, there will be no more NCAA tournaments; and
basketball teams belonging to this conference won't be playing
in Madison Square Garden for the National invitational tourna
ment and the NCAA.
All Kansas State Coach Jack Gardner could offer was a bar
rage of adjectives describing his disgust with the action that would
not allow his Wildcat cagers to journey to New York to play in
the big tournaments if they could go.
Action, not words, is the battle-cry at Oklahoma where re
cent reports have it that the Sooners are mighty provoked about
the ruling that stands between them and playing In a New Year's
day bowl classic
Personally, the Sooners are not so unjust; at least not as bad
as the men who are tearing down the sport with uncompromising
rulings. How can anyone blame the Oklahomans or the Kansas
Application of some rational thought seems to be the answer
to the complex football puzzle. If the men who have the power to
apply it would use it, the solution might be close at hand.
COMPROMISE is the word that ad"ocaters of both schools of
thought must practice.
Instead of doing away with post season competition entirely,
the legislatures governing the sportsland should not abolish bowls
because they are too numerous. Let them abolish the "Salad Bowl,"
the "mist Bowl" and these little bowls that are constantly running
in the red.
Let conference officials retract their radical bowl ruling for
the good of the conference. No other major conference has taken
upon them to stick their necks out as far as the Big Seven. If
other conferences find that it isn't such a satisfactory set-up,
which they undoubtedly will, then the Big Seven will find them
selves out In the cold year after year, tournament after tourna
ment and bowl after 'bowL
Georgia Tech tackle, Lamar Wheat says, "I think it's a fine
honor to play in a bowl and a reward for a team that's done a
good job."

Lovellette Betters Scoring

All men wishing to go out
for spring football practice are
urged to contact coach Bill
Glassford before Feb. 20.
This does not pertain only to
those members of the fall
squad, Glassford announced.

would pluck grapes off a six-foot

a point he lifts the ceiling on

costly when Grancer picked up
four fouls and was taken out of

Fairbury jumped to an early
