Some doubt has arisen as to
whether or not his hesitation pitch

his success was his overhand

schedule, Miss Airedale feels. "'I
hope the new athletic director
will emphasize it," she said.
She also indicated shyly that
if prizes were awarded to official
yo-yo champs, there might be
more incentive to compete. - She
suggested a four-year scholarship
as a possible reward. J'If awarded
a scholarship. 1 would even be
willing to eat at the training
table," she added.
Coach Henry McGulligan told
us that Smith and the chess team
will participate in ten meets next
year. The current spring training
practice will end at the close of
the semester with the 1954 sched
ule beginning in the latter of part
of September,
Included on the ten-game slate
are matches in Moscow with the
Russian Academy of Athletes
which last year were upset by the
Nebraska team. Another meet
will send the squad for a two
game series with the Texas State
College for Women. I guess we
can't blame Bob too much.
The Loehr incident came as a
shocker to the Husker coaches
and to his many friends. No one
really knew too much about the
rugged end"s romantic life, but
it was a complete surprise when
his pal, Nick Adduci, informed
Coacn Glassford that Loehr was
in New York, happily married
and unable to return to school.
According to Adduci, who many
believed palled the same stunt
several years ago only to have
I niversity officials find out that
the Army got him, Loehr mar
ried a miss rleulah Betindorter,
a former coed at Slippery Kock
'leachers and up to Monday, a
Elgin Watch C., employee.
Loehr, a tough, glue-fingered
end for the Husker football team
the last few years, had been
counted on heavily by Glassford.
Glassford summed up the situa
tion by stating: "We certainly
can't let football interfere with
Andy's married life. We wish him
the best of luck."
