THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Coach Ed Weir of the Nebraska
track team heads southward with
his charges this week for the Big
Seven Conference Indoor Cham
pionships at Kansas City.
Coach Weir hopes for a first di
vision berth but, admits it will
take some inspired performances
to land his Scarlet-clad entry in
the upper division.
From championship stature twj
years ago, the Cornhusker squad
has been riddled by graduation
and service calls.
In dual competition this winter,
Nebraska has been able to win but
one meet, a triangular with Colo
rado and North Dakota. The Sear
let dipped its colors to Kansas,
Kansas State and Oklahoma in
Coach Weir recalls the 1952
meet when but two points sepa
rated second and fourth places in
the Big Seven carnival.
The Cornhuskers must depend
largely upon field event perform-l
ers and one hurdler, Dan Tolman.
Cliff Dale, shot putter from
Falls City is undefeated with his
best toss measuring 49 feet 4
inches. However, Larry Horine
of Colorado, has a toss of 50 feet ra
Tolman's best time in the high
hurdles is :07.8 which has been
matched by Pat Hindman, Colo
rado and Bill Biberstein, Kansas.
Dan's best in the lows is :07.1.
Gray of Missouri and Corky Tay

these barriers in an even :07.

match strides with the Big Seven's best Friday and Saturday at Kansas City in the conference

field events, but Tolman will be counted upon for points in the hurdle races.

Basketball Coach Harry Good
was unoptimistic as he antici

the coliseum Saturday.
"It's hard to make any predic

urday's game," stated Good.
The two teams will be battling
it out for fourth place in the Big
Seven standings. In the last game
between these two teams, the
Huskers won a hard-fought con
The coach went on to say that
in the last NU-OU game, played
at Norman, both teams were
pretty exhausted from their pre

game on the OU campus," said
Coach Good but he believes that

The Sooners started out the
season with three quick wins and
astounded the league by their
performance, but the picnic ended
abruptly. Oklahoma dropped their
next five games before regaining
their winning tactics against Col

from a third place tie last Satur
day by taming the Huskers,- 66-59,
