In the Friday. ADrll 18 issue of The Daily Nebraskan, the sport
page carried a story concerning the Nebraska track team and the
difficulties they were expected to encounter in traveling to their
dual meet against Missouri and the Kansas Keiays.
It can now be reported that Coach Ed Weir et al, conquered
the roaring Missouri by journeying down to Kansas City and cross
ing the river at that point. It took a little extra gas, but the Corn
huskers arrived in time to partake in the dual meet (and ret nipped
by H of a point) and take some third place laurels in the relays.
All in all. it was a rather busy weekend for the Nebraska thin
clads, who are busy planning their itinerary for the Drake relays in
Des Moines this Saturday.
Climbing The Ladder
iim v. The Kansas state college atnietic teams nave
t jf 1 made an amazing comeback from the nightmarish
t , f days ot tne War and post-war era. Not only can
' I . Manhattan teams be counted on for good battles
I '-,. j in football, basketball (and how!) and track, but
1 1 "" r , they have also expanded and improved their entire
' - . athletic department
Kansas State inaugurated gymnastic competi
tion last season. They have improved their base
ball facilities and have "loosened up" their athletic
fund for supporting and better equipping their
tennis and golf teams.
The K-State officials apparently possess the
idealistic belief that the primary purpose of ath
letic competition is to induce narticination and
skills of various athletic talents and to- improve the participant so as
to make him a better all-around student and develop better sports
manship (not that Kansas State stands alone in this belief).
This could be the explanation for all the West Point's "naughty
cadets" enrolling at Manhattan ... (it could be but . , .).
You Too Can Take Benzedrine!
Speaking of Kansas State, they've got a whale of an athlete
down there. He goes under the name of Verl Switzer.
This fine Negro athlete not only is an all-Amerlcan football
halfback, but doubles as a star trackman on the Wildcat cinder team.
His football fetes are numerous, but his reputation In the pig
skin sport is built around his tackling and blocking ability. His
tackling is the hardest this conference has seen since the days of
Tom Novak and Johnny Rapacs of Oklahoma.
In track, Switzer broad jumps, pole vaults and probably could
run the sprints if they put Hadacol on the training table. He won the
conference broad jump title from the Sooner's Neville Price and has
recorded a leap of 24 feet 3y4 inches this year.
As The Old Saying Goes
"Monkey's is the craziest peoples." That's the way the old saying
goes. We contend that if that's true, sports fans are the next in line
for the honors.
We've had two guest columnists this semester on the sport
page, Norris Anderson, sports editor of the Lincoln Star, and June
Beirbower, sports writer for the Lincoln Journal.
Both professional sports sportsographics (describers of sports
events to those of you who don't have the latest sport slang diction
aries) mentioned the lack of Nebraska spirit and prescribed the
medicine to cure the dreaded disease.
I can recall a very lucid example of this during the past basket ball
season. Several "Joe College" arm-chair generals were loqua
cious in their shouts of disapproval for Bill Johnson in the first
quarter of a game.
They verbally crucified Johnson, who was having a rather bad
first quarter. The shouts of antagonism certainly and apparently
weren't providing Johnson any encouragement to shake off his bad
fortune that evening, but he finally shook-off the curse and played
fine basketball for the remaining three quarters.
This is a typical example of what seems to happen in most all
Nebraska sports, including criticism of coaches. This is probably
a typical example of what occurs in most colleges throughout the
country. You might call it "sports nature."
Oh well, we're not going to solve the problem in this writing and
we don't plan to dedicate this space for preaching good sportsman
ship, but many fans forget good sportsmanship is good sense and

Forbes Field rooters were rhythmically pounding their tootsies
against the floor in hopes of inspiring Hank to pound one over the
fence and win the game. As it turned out, Hank struck out on four
