"We did about as well as we ex
pected to do." That was how Ne
braska track coach, Ed Weir,
summed up the recent Big Seven
maoor track meet.
"Our dope sheet called for us
to score 25 points." As it hap
pened, the Cornhusker cinder
men netted 25 710 points. "It
would have taken so little to
take second place," said Weir.
- He was referrins t.r thp fart that
second place Kansas State scored
oniy zu a5 points and third place
Colorado 25. The Huskers need
ed less than two points to take
runner-up honors.
When asked what happened
to Nebraska's top broad Jumping:
prospect, Glenn Beerline, Weir
plainly stated, "it was Just one
of those days."
1 Beerline got off several good
umps, but they were disqualified
lecause he "scratched" on them.
"He is one of our best all-around
trainers and no competitor ever
felt worse about losing," stated
Words of praise flowed from
the cinder mentor's lips when

'Non' Title To
M Streeters
Amid frequent outbursts of
temper, the M Street Manisoi'
ran the Chi-O-Pa's into submis
sion to the tune of 56r47 Sunday
at the P. E. gym. The game de
cided the "Non" titleholder.
M Street presented a well bal
anced scoring attack paced by
Jim Evans and trailed only in
the first quarter. Evans led both
teams in scoring with 14 points.
He was followed by Bob Decker
.. who netted 13 points for the
Chi-O-Pa's led throughout the

failed to find their basket eyes
and held a 16-14 margin as the

Emanuel wound np with 12
points and cleared the boards
well. -With
M Street leading 47-33 go
ing into the last quarter, the game
began to get a trifle rough. Temp

hen spoke of Don Bedker, Lee
Moore and Paul Grimm.
Bedker "gave a remarkable
performance. He didn't lose one
race in the preliminary, semi final
or final heats." Bedker has been
consistent in his timings over the
hurdle routes in the indoor seasn
and Weir summed it up," he didn't
letter his sophomore year out. He's
come along far enough to not only
win both hurdle races, but tie the
conference mark in the highs and
miss the record by 110 of a sec
ond in the lows.
Grimm's Improvement was
categorized as "amazing" by
Weir. Last year Grimm wasn't
hitting- much over 44 feet and
this winter, "Cherub" has been
heaving the iron ball up and
over the 50 foot marker.
"Lee Moore's 1:56.3 timing in
the 880 yard run was a very fine
performance from the improve
ment standpoint." Moore ran the
fastest half mile in his career on
the Kansas City boards.
Clayton Scott took a seventh
place in the mile and was far
behind the field in the two mile.

It gave this writer a real thrill
State basketball team during their
was of even greater pleasure to be invited at the Wildcat head bas
ketball coach's invitation.
Gardner sent me the invite after I had boldly passed on to
him several of my masterpieces of journalistic suicide opposing his
ruthless tactics in the basketball
When I received his reaction
set to battle the fiery mentor with
fact, I had my list of contentions
And Then
Just as I was leaving the Nebraskan office to meet Gardner and
his cage cohorts, I picked up the morning papers which blared head
lines of Kansas State and NEBRASKA'S chastisement by the Big
Seven conference for shady recruiting procedures.
What was I to tell Gardner now! Gadzooks!
He could nail me to the cross by simply showing
me the conference officials' decision. I was a
cooked goose.
Gardner didn't come close to snapping my
head off as I had visualized him doing.
I meekly asked him if he had seen the
morning papers and I managed to force a smile
to hide the nausea I felt in my stomach. "Yeah.
I knew it all the time!"
I breathed a sigh of relief as he had just
emancipated a frustrated mind with that state
ment. For this was the time that he could have
kayoed my arguments with "why don't you guys
at Nebraska look into your own
someone else.'"
It turned out to be a wonderful experience for this scribe who
found out he was still plenty wet behind the ears. I was fortunate
to get involved with a man like Gardner.
The Tom Carodine Story Unfinished?
A report from a San Diego, Cal., newspaper reports that Tom
Carodine, quarterback and halfback for Loyola and later Nebraska,
is in training at the Marine Corps recruiting depot, where he s ex
pected to join the depot's grid squad this year.
Carodine will play under contract to the Los Angeles Rams.
The 6 foot 1 inch, 185 pounder was former mayor of Boys Town
and came to Nebraska after dropping out at Loyola.
He was dismissed from the Cornhusker grid team by Coach
Bill Glassford for neglecting to come to a practice during the early
part of the 1951 season.
Sharpemen Getting Sharper
Don't look now, but this is Nebraska's year to win the confer
ence baseball crown. The Huskers have a positive response for win
ning in even numbered years. They won the crown in 1948-50
The Husker baseball prospects have never been so good. Not
only does Sharpe have the veterans to give him a solid nucleus
with which to work, but he has the young, die-hard hopefuls who
are pushing the big boys plenty for their positions.
Keep your eye on two freshman pitching potentials that will
have this conference rocking come their senior years. Bob Gleason
and Francis Hoffmaier.
Gleason is a Fullerton, Neb., freshman with plenty of stuff in
his throwing arm. He's a right hander and one of the Husker's top
mound nrosnects in many a moon.
Hoffmaier is a freshman hailing from Mission Hill, S. D. He is
a southpaw with plenty of "zits" in his fastball.
Infielder AI Karle received the first major Injury of the year.
He was the victim of a hard hit ball In a "pepper game." It
knocked Karle out and forced him to miss practice for several
Coach Tonv Shame has a fine trio of young catcher hopefuls
Jim Cederdahl, Murry Backhaus
to watch.
Cederdahl is a left handed hitter, which makes him valuable
for a well-balanced team. Backhaus has handled himself well in
early practice sessions and Ficke is the only player on the roster
that is a switch hitter.
Tf th nrespnt influx of hieh school diamond dazzlers to Corn
huskerland continues, Coach Sharpe will find the Huskers winning
the loop crown on even and odd
