Kansas Indoor Winner
At the nresent moment. Nebraskan sports staff writers are busy
doping out who will win the 1952 Big Seven indoor track meet.
From all indications, the Kansas Jayhawks look to be a solid bet.
But don't count your chickens! The form chart for the meet
will come out Thursday, so the coaches can relax during the meet
since they'll know how they'd come out Thursday.
Knix Jones, last year's tabulator on the conference cinder carni
val, selected Ed Weir's trackmen to upset Missouri in the Kansas City
affair. Sure 'nuf, the scarlet team brought back the bacon. So, don't
look that big chart over too lightly.
Ed Weir's Husker track teams have won ten out of a possible
25 indoor and outdoor conference championships since 1939 when
Weir took over the helms. Do I hear 26?
Old Huskers Never Diel
Put a big red circle around April 5. That's the date of the gigantic
All-Sports Day. And what a day it should be!
Heading the festivities again this year will be that football
fiasco between the Nebraska alumni and varsity football teams.
It should be a sight to see Coach Tom Novak's marauders last 60
strenuous minutes against the varsity crew. Since Nagle's married,
the team will have to use the T-formation. (They were going to use
the "single" wing.) Lawyer Mueller will be stiff-arming his clients
ana letting tne defense rest when he gets too tired.
Attention All Chancellors!
Bill Callahan fMissouri nublicity chief) sends along a little
scholastic report from Columbia.
Trackster Mylon Buck and footballer Bill Schoonmaker led the
way in the scholastie field for Don Faurot's Saturday heroes. Buck
