The new champion successfully

STEADIES HUSKER INFIELD . . . Bob Reynolds, veteran second

the halves of one of Nebraska s
home football games next fall,
announced John Bentley, Sports
Publicity Director.
Weir was a member of the all
American team picked by Walter
Camp in 1924. Back in those days
it was an honor to make Camp's
all-American squad since he was
the only man picking a nationally
recognized team.
Mr. Weir still has a beautiful
gold football with a diamond in
it hanging from his keychain
with the words "All-American,
1924" engraved on it.
The following year an all
American board took over Camp's
place after his death, and this
board consisting of Knute Rockne
and Glenn Warner picked Weir
again for the second consecutive
Rockne, who coached some of
the greatest teams ever to hit
the gridiron from Notre Dame
payed Weir a great compliment.
"Weir is the greatest tackle I
have ever seen," stated Rockne
years ago.
Weir played against Notre Dame
when Nebraska beat the Fighting
Irish in 1923 and in 1925.
After completing a very suc
cessful college
career. Weir
switched to the Drofessional ranks
of football. He joined the Phila-jthe
delphia Yellowjackets and played
three years for the city of broth
erly love.
Gary "The. Champ" Chamber
lin, another Nebraska all-time
football great, stated that he
would quit football if a tackle
ever beat him down the field to
grab a punt. Weir did the feat
much to the amazement of Cham
berlin. Toting 190 pounds Weir lettered
three years in football at left
tackle and three years in track
running the low and high hur
dles. He held the Kansas Relay rec

When he broke the record he beat

Weir still holds the record from
the old Missouri Valley Meet for

Weir was assistant coach under
Henry Schulte in 1926, helped
coach football in 1929 and took
over as head track coach in 1939
when Schulte resigned. Since tak

competition. In 1940, '41, and '42
his teams took both the indoor
and outdoor titles. In 1949 and
1951 his Huskers took the indoor
championships and in 1950 gar
nered the outdoor crown.

having a dismal indoor season
stunned the other Big Seven
teams by taking third place in

Two Jayhawk Cagers Placed
On MebrasKcan All-Loop Five
The University of Kansas Jay
hawkers, winners of the Big
Seven basketball pennant and
worthy participants in the NCAA
Western regional tournament at
Kansas City this week, placed two
players on the first team of The
Daily Nebraskan's All Big Seven
cage squad for the 1952-53 season.
Four other clubs Kansas State,
Colorado and Iowa State were
represented on the all-star five.
Dick Knostman, who was
tabbed All-American on most
polls both this year and last,
heads the list of conference stars.
The high-scoring Wildcat center
scored 268 points during his final
year of competition for a 22.5
point-per-game average.
Knostman's point total is shaded
I by B. H. Born, 6-9 center for the
champion Jayhawk club, who is
tabbed for an all conference berth
by the Nebraskan. Born led
league scorers with 270 and a 22.5
average. He played second string
last year as understudy for big
uiyae Loveiiette.
Art Bunte, sensational high
scorer from Colorado holds down
a first five position, adding a 22.0
points-per-game average to the
powerful quintet. Bunte is just a
sophomore at the Buffalo school
this year, but his efforts have
snapped the all-time Buff scoring
Another scoring king, Delmar
Diercks of Iowa State, gains first
team recognition. Towering Del
reset Cyclone record books while
scoring 234 points for a 19.5 scor
ing average in league contests.
Another Jayhawker, Captain
Dean Kelley of the fiery Hawk
squad, was selected on the myth
ical five for his brilliant floor
game and team generalship. Al
though Dean was not among the
top loop point-getters, his con
sistently scrappy play gained his
first team recognition.
Five different universities are
represented on the second five,
which consists of hard-playing
Hobe Jones Hurt;
May Not Return
Coach Ed Weir's plans for a
successful outdoor track season
have received a disheartening
blow. It was revealed that Hobe
Jones, a top. prospect for the dis
tances for the university track
squad, injured himself and may
be sidelined for the entire out
door session.
Jones was limping after the in
tramural basketball championship
game that was played last Satur
day. Jones injured a cartilage in
his knee as he led his ATO fra
ternity brothers in winning the
championship game.
If Jones is out for the season
it will leave quite a big slot for
Weir to fill. The Huskers showed
a spurt of power in the Big Seven
indoor championships held last
month in Kansas City.
After failing to show much
power during the season the Ne
braskans upset the dope sheets
and ended up in third place. Jones
was not eligible to compete in
the Big Seven championships be
cause he ust recently returnea
from the service.

Ed Husmann, Big Seven heavy

captain of the Cornhusker foot

He did not attempt the mat sport
until he was a junior. Ed did not
wrestle in high school.
One of the standouts in the last
East-West football game at San
Francisco, Husmann had a season
wrestling record of 12 victories
and one defeat. He erased that one
loss by beating the one heavy
weight who had downed him dur
ing the regular season.
Husmann, in attempting a re
versal, fell into a pin hold against
Walden of Iowa State during the
regular season. However, Ed won
from Walden in the finals of the
Big Seven tournament at Norman,
Husmann has done a lasting
service for all aspiring freshman
football players at the University
of Nebraska. Because of Ed, Coach
Bill Glassford says he will never

When the Ogallala strong boy
was first playing football it ap
peared that his future in that
sport had come and gone. But Ed
is a silent plugger. He listens to
suggestions for i m p r o v e m e n t,
