Shooting At Sports
Board Of Regents
Sports Editor
The University of Nebraska's publicity-packed athletic situa
tion in many respects has been caught in the middle of a whirl
pool the last few. months. Everything and everyone has been going
around and around with nothing being quite done on the whole
On Wedesday the menacing whirlpool was slowed down some
what as several definite policies pertaining to the future of Corn
husker athletics chiefly involving football, were laid down and
officially approved by the Board of Regents.
Probably the most important accomplishment which came out
of Wednesday's session was the adoption of a new grants-in-aid
progTam to provide for aid for 109 athletes at a cost of approxi-
This should have been done several years ago. The Huskers

have long rested on the bottom of that department in the Big
Seven Conference. The old grants-in-aid plan has long been out
moded especially connected with football. As the policy continued
to remain the same, athletes, who might ordinarily go to Nebraska,
were going everywhere but there.
THE LONG-needed new plan simply is this: There will
now be 74 football grants-in-aid instead of usual 55. This is an
noticable increase of 24 which brings Nebraska "a little above the
middle bracket" in comparison with other Big Seven schools.
Other sports have been affected by the new policy. It pro
vides for 20 in basketball, 12 in track and three in baseball. No
provision for aid in such sports as swimming, gymnastics, wrestl
ing, tennis or golf is included in the new setup at present.
The new system has junked the old "Job" setup. Present plans
call for $60,000 of the proposed $89,100 to come from the athletic
department with the rest from friends of the University.
Coach Bill Glassford has previously stated that requirements
for a grant-in-aid at the Cornhusker institution will coincide with
Big Seven rules.
THUS A potential football player or any athlete involved in a
grant-in-aid must rank in the upper two-thirds of his graduating
class or if he fails to qualify on this requirement, ht can take Uni
versity placement tests and providing he falls in the upper 50
cf this group, he is eligible for a grant-in-aid.
All football grants-in-aid will be recommended by Glassford
after a detailed screening process. For final approval they will go
to the Committee on General Scholarship Awards. To hold the
grant-in-aid an athlete must maintain the University standards for
THERE WAS other action Wednesday. The Board of Regents
officially okayed their support of Coach Glassford, approved con
tract renewals of John Bentley, publicity director; L. F. Klein, as
sistant director and concessions manager; Ike Hanscom, assistant
coach; Bob Davis, backfield coach; and Ray Prochaska, end coach;
and also approved the temporarily assignment of A. J. Lewandow
ski as athletic director.
The adoption of the new grants-in-aid policy at Nebraska is a
step in the right direction toward getting- the Huskers back on the
road to the top, a position tbey once enjoyed and ean again in time.
Next on the agenda should be the selecting of a permanent
athletic director, the gentleman who will have much to say on how
soon Nebraska football reaches its pre-war peak. The wheels are
now in motion thanks to Wednesday's long-awaited action.

The Board of, Regents took

The report stated that the med

the administration of novocain by
individuals other than physicians
and that it has never authorized
the use of novocain to ret an ath

acute injury.
The report also said that the

that if any unauthorized injec

were administered over two years

Good's Club Needs Victory Badly
To Stay In Big Seven Title Chase
Saturday night will be one of
reckoning for Coach Harry
Good's University of Nebraska
basketball team. A win over their
rugged foe, the Kansas Jayhawks,
is a "must" if the Huskers want
to stay in the thick of the scram
ble for Big Seven honors.
Nebraska is currently resting
in third place with a 4-2 while
Dr. Phog Allen's Jayhawks are
settled in second on a 5-1 mark,
having losing only to surprising
Colorado, a team that knocked
the Huskers off 75-67 in Lincoln
Monday night.
The first-place Buffs are idle
Saturday, but swing back into
their bid for their first Big Seven
basketball title with a Monday
night skirmish with Iowa State.
Other Saturday action includes
the Cyclones at Kansas State and
two non-conference games, Hous
ton at Missouri and Oklahoma at
Oklahoma A&M.
Good will probably start the
usual five in an attempt to get
the Scarlet back in winning style
after two straight setbacks. This
means Don Weber and Willard
Fagler at the forwards, Bill John
son at center and Charlie Smith
and Fred Seger at the guards.
The Jayhawks will open with
Harold Patterson and Larry Dav
enport at the forwards, big B. H.
Born at center and Allen Kelley
and sophomore Dallas Dobbs at
the guards.
NU Mermen Busy
Friday, Saturday
Coach Hollis Lepley's Univer
sity of Nebraska swimmers hit
the pool for two home dual
meets this weekend. The first
is this afternoon at 3 p.m. when
they entertain Colorado and
Saturday afternoon the Husker
mermen take on the Jayhawks
again beginning at 2 p.m.
Several varsity marks were
broken in their recent loss to
Iowa State. The medley relay
team of Lloyd Reed, Dick Hlidek
and Gordon Peterson swam the
distance in 3:11.4 to better the
varsity mark of Fenton-King-Draper
in 1948 of 3:14.5.
Cal Bentz also broke two
Nebraska records in the 120-yard
individual medley and the 440
yard freestyle. Bentz swam the
former in 1:16.8 to break Buele
Balderson's mark of 1:17.6 and
covered the latter in 5:09.4 to
erase the 5:15.4 record set by
Jim Pixley in 1935.
Going into the weekend meets
Bentz is the top scorer with 32
points. Sophomore Dick Hill is
second with 18 followed by Dick
Hlidek, 17; Lloyd Reed, 15; David
Gradwohl, 11; and Gordon
Peterson, 8.
Other scorers include George
Gohde, Jack Trabert, Bob Sand
stedt and John Lightle.

How College Students Can Get More Information
long before they graduate and at no cost
through this newly developed NAS career plan
If you're like most college students,
you probably haven't made up your
mind what you're going to do after
graduation. There's no more reliable
source of advice than your own Col
lege Placement Bureau.
To further clarify your thinking, to
help you decide where your particular
skills will find the greatest opportuni
ties by comparing one field against
another, NAS has opened the way for
you to secure first hand information
from leading companies in the fields
that interest you most.
NAS can do this because, as adver
tising representatives of more than
700 college newspapers, we are in
daily contact with many of the most
important and progressive companies
in America. These companies not
only constantly seek college-trained
men and women, but often plan far
ahead in competing with one another
for the most promising prospects.
So, you see, this new NAS career
plan is a service both to college stu
dents and business leaders. Here's
how it works:
The coupon below indicates the
fields in which the greatest opportu
