But the Dray Relays do not offer
Nebraska's individual track stars
a chance to show their ability.
Such men as Lee Moore, ace dis

be held on the track.
Sickness and injury of several

dampened the Husker mentor's
hopes of fielding several good
relay teams capable of running
against the to s red competition
offered at Drake.

Are they better husbands and wives? Is a
sheepskin really worth all the effort?
