It's amazing to note how the
University of Nebraska campus
every summer becomes the refuge
for hundreds of Nebraska prep
and college coaches.
These determined gentlemen
swarm over the Teacher's Col
lege area with that hungry an
ticipating graduate student look.
It's a good thing for all concerned,
and especially for the school kids
The athletic coach today has
grown into a position of respect
on all school campuses and it Is
a grand sight indeed to see these
same coaches going past the basic
courses usually associated with
Athletes and stepping Into more
advanced study, primarily In the
field of school administration.
With the help of a great deal
of coaches attending this year's
summer session here, we came up
with a pretty thorough list of
coaches doing" advanced work.
From the length of this list it can
be assumed that what the Ne
braska coach today is searching
for is security in his Job and a
better understanding of the prob
lems of all-round school admin
istration, quite a Jump from the

A FAMILY OF SPEED ENTHUSIASTS Bob Rager Is not the only race-minded member of his
family. Ills son Roger, 4, is the proud owner of a four-horsepower Cushman-powered car which
he prizes as highly as his father does of his "Lone Ranger." Father and-son are pictured in their
sleek racers (Roger's travels at a speed of 20 miles an hour) while Roger's grandmother, Mrs.
Sylvia Coons (left) and his mother also pose for the family picture. Rager will race in the July
4 program at the Fairgrounds.
