Roberts, a strong AU-Amerl-can

End Gary Knafelc, Colorado's
pass-snagging wizard and Mis
souri's hard-churning fullback,
Bob Bauman round out The Ne
braskan's conference selections.
CO-CAPTAIN NELSON and
Burris teamed up with Roberts
nd Boydston to make the
ooner line what it was, mighty
ough from end to end. Grigg,
the great defensive back of a
year ago, was the Big Seven's
leading scorer and ground
O'Boyle was the line standout
of a Kansas State team that sur
prised everyone while Switzer,
a defensive selection last year,
climaxed his football career at
the Manhattan institution with
his best season, both offensively
and defensively. Connor also
found two-way football right up
his allev with a fine season at
Nebraska while Bordogna wound j
up as the league's second best ;
Burris and Bauman are the :
only two underclassmen en the
quad. Both are juniors.
THERE HERE several play
ers who were just a step behind
the leaders. They included End
Ed Pence, Kansas State; Tackle
Jerry Minnick. Nebraska; Guard
Bob Hantla, Kansas; Guard
Terry Roberts, Missouri; Back
Max Burkett, Iowa State; Back
Carroll Hardy, Colorado; and
Back Gene Calame, Oklahoma.
Pence, hampered by injuries
at various times, was as tough

Minnick team np with Connor
for the. coaferrwe' bwt-tackle
combination. Hantla and Rob
erts were easily the line stand
outs for their respective teams,
Kansas and Missouri.
Burkett, another line-busting
fullback, was Iowa State's big
show while Calame was Okla
homa's smooth ball handler at
quarterback. Hardy' easily one
of the conference's best runners,
was also out for a while with
injuries which probably cost the
Colorado ace a first-team berth.

game of the season).
2. Hit 40 per cent of its medium

But meeting those requirements
will be a difficult assignment.
Minnesota has balance good
height and weight coupled with
consistent shooting, particularly
from outside, and a strong de
fense. "THEY HAVE tremendous
board work it will be some rf
the best we meet all season,"
Good declared. "That comes
from the fact they have two or
three good rebounders and also
because their boys usually are
the rugged, sturdy-legged type
whose extra weight favors them
in underbasket work.
"Our players are more of the
wiry type. Lacking sufficient
weight, they will be more easily
knocked out of position when go
ing up for rebounds."

Kalafat, both All-Big Ten choices
Mencel averaged 18 points a
game for 21 contests last season,
bucketing 24 against the Corn
huskers at Minneapolis. The
Gophers won 71-62. Kalafat aver
aged 1S.5 for a 22-game total of
341. He scored 15 against Ne
braska. IN THAT game Johnson and
Joe Good, who graduated, regis
tered 13 points apiece, while Se
ger added 11 more for the Husk
ers. Kalafat also contributed more
than one-third of his'team's re
bounds in the fray.
Last year's team scores and
the game total of 133 points were
the highest during the 22-game
series between the schools.

LUCKIES LEAD AGAIN
Last year a survey of leading colleges
throughout the country showed that
smokers in those colleges preferred
Luckies to any other cigarette. jf
This year another nation-wide survey '
based on thousands of actual student
interviews, and representative of all I
students in regular colleges shows that
Luckies lead again over all brands, regu
lar or long size... and by a wide margin!
The Na 1 reason: Luckies taste better.
Smoking enjoyment is all a matter of
taste, and the fact of the matter is Luckies
taste better -for 2 reasons. LS.M.F.T.
Lucky Strike means fine tobacco. And
Luckies are made better to taste better.
So, Be Happy Go Lucky!
Where your (ingle?
It's easier than you think to
make $25 by writing a Lucky
Strike jingle like those you see
in this ad. Yes, we need jingles
and we ply $25 for every one
we use! So send as many as you
like to: Happy-Go-Lucky, P. O.
