Shooting At Sports
Jays Seek Ulh Straight
Over NU Cagers Monday
By GARY FRANDSEN
Harry Good's Nebraska basketball team, currently engulfed
in a jolting four-game losing streak which all, but shoved them
out of the Big Seven title picture, can soon accomplish something
that a Husker squad hasn't achieved in a long, long time and
that's whip the tar out of crafty Phog Allen and his Kansas Jay
hawks. Not since the 1949-50 campaign 'have the Scarlet conquered
the Kinghawk of the Kaw and his redoubtable clan of Mt. Oread
and then it was only by a mere point, 57-56.
Monday night, on the Coliseum maples, the Huskers get another
crack at ending the unwanted precedent. Maybe the eleventh at
tempt will finally erase the Jayhawks' mastery over the Corn
huskers in the game of basketball. We'll soon know.
During the ten-game drouth, the closest the Huskers cameto
victory was the 69-66 scare during the 1951-52 season. That same
campaign the Kansans inflicted the worst trouncing of the period
on the Huskers, a 90-52 lacing.
AS USUAL Kansas is near the forefront in the race for the
Big Seven laurels. This year they have a stubborn challenger in
the surprising Colorado Buffs, a Saturday night foe of the Huskers
and a squad which is still seeking its first conference crown.
Center B. H. Born, Forwards Harold Patterson and Allen
Kelley and sophomore Guard Dallas Dobbs are the ringleaders of
the Dr. Allen's current crew.
Big Born needs no introduction. Last season he made the
Helms Foundation Ail-American first team and won the Big Seven
individual scoring championship with a 22.5 average in 12 games
plus the setting of a new single-game scoring record of 44 against
Patterson has been a consistent scorer as well as one of the
team's top rebounders. , Kelley, brother of Dean, was All-Big
Seven last season and is a clever, skillful ball-hawk. Dobbs has
been nothing short of sensational in his first year. He, along with
Patterson, carried the brunt of Kansas load when Born was both
ered by injuries and Kelley had trouble finding the hoop.
Two members of the Jayhawk squad are Nebraskans and both
of them hail from Grand Island. One of them is John Anderson,
a junior letterman who is also two-year veteran in football. The
other is sophomore Jim Toft, a 6-6 center who has been used only
sparingly thus far.
ONE OF the more interesting aspects of the pre-season base
ball talk is the announcement that two old pros, Hal Newhouser
and Dick Wakefield, will attempt do-or-die comebacks this season.
After a service hitch Wakefield never could regain the form
which once made him one of the American League's outstanding
3oung batters. The Tigers soon dropped-him and since he has hac
trouble hooking, on with any major league club. Now he has
worked himself into excellent shape and hopes to catch on with
either the Phillies or his old club, the Tigers.
NEWHOUSER'S CASE is slightly different. After being an
established star pitcher for close to 15 years with these same
Tigers, something snapped in Hal's arm. The old left flinger just
didn't seem to have it any more as enemy batsmen started to en
joy facing the one-time 29-game winner.
After finishing with a miserable record in 1953 Hal drew his
outright release from the Tigers. Everyone said he was through.
Now Newhouser, at 32, says his once-talented left arm doesn't ail
him and has his sights set on a berth with the Cleveland Indians.

Coach Harry Good's Nebraska
basketball aggregation will at
tempt to break a four-game losing
streak in a Big Seven tussle at
Boulder Saturday night with the
University of Colorado. The Husk
ers are currently in third with a
4-4 record while the Buffs are
tied with Kansas for the league
lead with a 7-1 mark.
Colorado has beaten the Husk
ers once already this year. Sev

Kansas State, by a thumping 85

poured in 23 and 22 points respectively.

IN THE still of the night high above a sleeping American
city an unidentified aircraft is spotted. In a matter of
seconds a lightning-like jt interceptor takes to the air.
Unerringly, with an Aircraft Observer showing the way, the
Air Force F-94 Night Fighter speeds to intercept the
stranger. The Aircraft Observer is the man behind the pilot
the officer who keeps America's planes flying on course
and on target. Without him the Air Force couldn't do i.s job.
What is the Aircraft Observer?
HeVa Radar Officer . . . employing an all seeing eye that
penetrates where human sight fails.
He's an Aircraft Performance Engineer Officer. . . know
ing everything there is to know about his plane . . . keeping
it fit for the skies and ready for action.
He's a Navigation Officer . . . plotting his plane's course
. . . with an entire crew depending on hhn for a safe flight.
He's a Bombardment Officer ... in full control of the plane
over the target area ... the Air Force Officer who "lowers
the boom" on the enemy.
Wfiof the Aircraft Observer gets
He earns over $5,000 a year. His silver Aircraft Observer
wings give him prestige and distinction, and he wears the
bars of an Air Force Lieutenant. They mark him as the
eyes, ears, and brains of America's Number One flying team.
What it takes to be an Aircraft Observer
The Aircraft Observer must be sound of limb, keen of mind,
and above all, must have the determination to be the best.
To qualify as an Aircraft Observer you must be single,
between 19 and 26V4 years old, and a high school graduate.
However, it will be better for you and the Air Force if you
stay in college and graduate before you apply. Then you,
too, can be one of the best ... as an Aircraft Observer.
