Coach Bill Glassford's gridders
have a limited number of practice
sessions remaining in the 1952
spring football training period.
For this reason, the Husker
mentor has a series of hard
scrimmages en tap for his Scar
let squad. The April 5 deadline
for the annual alumni-varsity
rame is drawing- near, and the
Nebraskans have paid no heed
to the unfavorable weather con
ditions the past few days.
The spring scrimmage system
set up by Glassford and his staff
this year places .the squad mem
bers on different teams, ranging
from A to I. .These teams compete
against each other daily, and every
squad member strives to work up
to an A team position.
Coach Glassford's A team

The men Glassford picked as
having shown the most improve

practice sessions were Connor,
Emanuel, and Bill Schabacker.
All three are currently playing at
end positions on the Husker
Connor has played both tackle
and end for the Cornhuskers,
and Schabacker was primarily
used as a linebacker last fall.

Jack Andrews of Delta --'jma
Pi and Howard Herbst and Lyle
Altman of Sigma Nu are the 1952
intramural handball champions.
Andrews climaxed his parade
through 122 university men by
downing Leonard Singer of Zeta
Beta Tau to take the individual
championship. Herbst and Altman
proved themselves the best of 49
teams and emerged as doubles
champs. They defeated Bob Bab

had little opportunity to survey
his candidates outdoors. The

a total of 39 points scored by
their heavy entry list. Beta

with 29 tollies.
It is interesting to note that the
two individual finalists were prac

organizations. Andrews was one
of two Delta Pi's entered in the
tournament while Singer was the
only representative of the Zetas.

Cerv bounced the homer off

but reliable hurler of the Braves.
Cerv is a "rookie" candidate,
even though he held a short
term lease on the Yankees cen
terfield gardens last year.
The Yanks manager, Casey
Stengel, is on the lookout for a
replacement in centerfield for Joe
DiMaggio and Cerv might solve
his problem. The competition will
be tough, however, as Mickey
Mantle has been receiving top
billing for the job.
DiMaggio stated that he pre
ferred Gene Woodling to Mantle
for his replacement, which throws
a new light on the story. Stengel
will probably be forced to switch
Cerv into left field.

With his West Point back
ground, Rowekamp should fit
readily into the Mizzou line-up
somewhere. The 6 ft. 1-inch
junior from Marietta, O., let
tered one year as a defensive
end for the Cadets but will be
given a thorough trial at offen
sive fullback here.
Coach Don Faurot hopes Rowe
kamo will make the switch
smoothly, and chances are ne win.
Ball-packing won't be any nov
elty for him, since he once played
halfback for the Army plebe
team. Chief amone Rowekamp s
top rivals in the fullback fight will
be: Al Androlewicz, lone return
ing letterman from St. Louis; Tom
Fitzgerald, B-teamer from Coffey-
vil e Kan.: and Bob tsauman,
raw-boned freshman from Ste.
Genevieve who made the varsity
travel squad last fall.
Rowekamp's whirl at full
back could be this spring's most
significant experiment, despite
the fact that there should be a
blazing scrap for both wide
open halfback 'berths. Loss of
Junior Wren and Harold Car
ter will create the gapsat both
halves, but right now Faurot is
hot on the trail of a fullback.
"Split T teams need that big,
powerful fullback as a running
and blocking threat," the M. U.
gridmaster points out. "Look at
Maryland and Oklahoma last year,
for instance. They had fine per
sonnel aE the way 'through, but
fullbacks like Modzelowski and
McPhail made them extra tough
. . .And before McPhail, the Soon
ers had Heath. Kansas also ran
Split T plays last season, and had
an ideal fullback in Laughlin."
Just a few years back as
Faurot well remembers Mizzou

ing finesse. The Mizzou ground
game has never been quite the
same since he left.
Like Carter. Rowekamp doesn't
meet the "real big" speculations,
but he's tall enough at 6-ft. 1, and
will weieh more than 190 pounds,
even on jtaurots iigniweigm
scales. He's solid, tough dead seri'
ous about his football, and excep
tionally fast.
Despite Faurot's prererence
for a two-platoon system, the
Ohloan would be a good bet for
double duty if he measures up
sive halfbacking role.

With his practice schedule set
back a week by foul weather
and muddy grounds, Faurot an
nounced a change in the date of
his final spring game. It has
been re-scheduled for April 26,
he said.
For the first time in Coach Don
Faurot's regime, the Mizzou foot
ball boss will go into the 195?
campaign without a seasoned cen
ter. Ever since he came to Colum
bia In 1935, Faurot has had an
endless stream of topflight cen
ters. When spring ball gets
under way Monday, however,
he looks in vain for an experi
enced ball-snapper. The cycle
ends with the June graduation
of Roger Klnson and Bill Fuchs,
his offensive-defensive combi
nation for the past two years.
Top-rated in the new batch of
centers are Lloyd Brown, husky
junior-to-be and Charles Sode
man, who lettered as a defensive
guard last season. Also in the pic
ture are George Ekern, a squad
man in '51, and Don Luckey.
It'll be up to one of this group
to keep alive the tradition of
standout centers at Missouri.
