The 1954-55 intramural All-University
all-star team is dominated
by outstanding performers from
Delta Tau Delta. The Delts, cham
pions in Gass A, Class B, and
the eventual victors over Dental
College for 'the All-University
championship, placed four men on
the All-U A team, two each on
the first and second units. It
was the same story on the All
U B team as the Delts placed
four men on the first unit and
one more on the second team. All
totaled, the powerful Deltmen land
ed nine out of a possible 28 po
sitions. Alpha Tau Omega followed the
Delt balloting on the A team while
Phi Gamma Delta was the runner
up on the B squad.
The first string on the All-U
team was "cut and dry." There
was no doubt after the first few
ballots had been, counted who was
going to make the first unit.
Most Votes
Ray Mladovich, Delta Tau Del
ta, was the top vote getter on the
first unit. Ray played outstand
ing ball throughout the entire sea
son on the line to spark the Delts
on to the record accomplishments.
He played Varsity baseball for
the Huskers and was a three year
letterman. Ray stands 6'1" and
tips the scales at 185. He is a
Law School freshman from Omaha.
Close behind Ray was Bob
Brown, Alpha Tau Omega. Bob
Is a Bus Ad junior from Fairbury.
An outstanding basketball player,
Bob was named to the second
team, All-U cage team last season.
As a first year man at NU Bob
was a member of the freshman
basketball team. He is a big boy
standing 6'5" and tipping the scales
at 205 pounds.
Welsh Repeats
Gene Welsh, Phi Kappa Psi,
was one of the Phi Psi repeaters
from last year's All-U champions.
Gene was a feared man in every
one of the Phi' Psi games. The
Phi Psi went through their entire
regular season play undefeated
but were thumped in their initital
play-off outing. Gene, a freshman
in Law School, weighs 165 and is
5'10" tall.
Rounding out the forward wall
on the first string, first team, is
Gus Lebsock, Sigma Alpha Ep
silon. Gus was one of the spark
plugs of the Sig Alph team through
out the season. He is a Law School
student standing 6'3" and weigh
ing 190 pounds.
Grant Tops Backs
Each one of the backs have a
team mate up in the front wall.
Again the top vote-getter in the
backfield was copped by the Delts.
Quarterback Dick Grant edged out
a very close field for that honor.
Grant, 5'10, 180 pound junior in
Bus Ad from Columbus, litterally
passed the Delts into their cham
pionships. The Grant to Mladovich
combination added up to many
points for the Delt A team.
Duane Rankin, Phi Kappa Psi
Lincoln senior, is the second re
peater from last year. "Rank"

These vacations and jaunts to
Miami aren't the best things to
improve your basketball game.
Of course, myself, since Santa
Claus was unable to, squeeze
down my chimney with that mil
lion dollars he had planned on leav
ing, was not affected by this Mi
ami disease. What I'm trying to
say in a rather round about way
is that if your basketball team
would like to practice, you may
arrange to do so on Saturdays.
See Miss Mulvany to make said
arrangements. If you don't care
to get mad at your own team by
playing against each other, you
might arrange to have your most
hated rivals play against you and
have a real one.
The winnah and new champion
of that funny old crazy old Ne
braska Ball are the Delta Gammas
who defeated the Lutheran Student
Association 31-15.
New Default Rule
Did you all know that the bas
ketball tournament started yester
day? You really should have
known. Since this is goin to be
a double elimination tournament we
had to do some adapting of the
default rule to the situation. If the
first game is defaulted, this will
be counted as a loss and the
team can still play in the second
game. However, you can't get
off so easy, the next tournament
is no deal.
The Tri-Delts gained the duck
pin championship again this year
by defeating the Chi Omeagas 425
344. The new bowling champion
is Barg Ferguson, Lutheran Stu
dent Association. Second place
went to Margaret Hook, Kappa
Delta; and third place Sara Lehan
Sigma Delta Tau.
Mixed Tourney
These are the teams who fllay
tomorrow night in the mixed vol
leyball tournament: KAPPA AL
TA PI, ALPH PHI No. 2 and
were selected for the first unit
and one on the second unit, giv
ing them five out of 14 positions.
Phi Gams Second
The Phi Gams were runnerup
to the Delts as they placed two
men on the first unit and one man
on the second unit, while ATO
landed on man on each of the
units, and the Phi Delts, DU, Sig
ma Chi, and the Phi Psis each
were represented by one man on
th? second unit.
On the first unit, Merle Maupin,
a 5' 11, 170-pound Engineering stu
dent, received the most number
of votes among the lineman. He
was named to all-star football
teams four times and to all-star
basketball teams three times in
the past. His Phi Gam teammate,
Ladd Hanscom, was the top vote
getter among the backs Hanscom,
a track letterman, is a 5' 8 160
pound Teachers College student.
Those Delts Again
Three Delts complete the line.
They are Jack Folmer, a 6-foot-175-pound
Bus Ad student; Chuck
Thompsen, a 6' 1 inch, 185-pound
Agriculture Junior who was All
State at Minden High, and John
Beideck, a 6' 165-pound Bus. Ad.
Sophomore from Lincoln. Bill
Harm is the Delta representative
in the backfield. He is a 5' 10 175
pound Arts and Science Junior.
Keith Kuxhausen, a 5' 10 165
pound Sophomore from Torring
ton, Wyo., completes the first
string backfield. Kuxhausen, a
Bus. Ad. student, was All-State in
high school in both football and
basketball and became known as
an excellent passer for the ATO's.
Don Becker, a 6-foot 190-pound
Bus Ad student represents the
Phi Delts in the second string
line. Becker is a baseball letter
man. He is a repeater on all uni
versity teams and is an all-university
Doubles champion in hand
ball. Charles Betzelberger, a Phi
Psi, is a 5' 10 175-pound Bus Ad
senior who also was selected for
the line.
TAU's Represented
Don- Ficke, representing ATO, Is
another lineman. He is a 5' 11 160
pounder from Lincoln in Bus Ad
college. Ed Schmidt completes the
line. This Phi Gam stands 6' 3
and weighs 195 pounds.
Lane Birkal, a 6' 1 165-pound
physical Education Senior, is Sig
ma Chi's representative in the
line. Bob Dolezal, Delt, and Dick
Westcott, DU, completed the back
field. Westcott is a 6foot-170-pound
Bus Ad Senior, and Dolezal, stand
ing 5-9 and weighing 165 pounds,
is also a Bus. Ad. student.

open field runner. He trailed Grant
in the balloting by a single vote
which shows the closeness of the
backfield race for first team hon
ores. Dangerous Man
Joe Gilford, Sigma Alpha Ep
silon, was described by many play
ers and viewers alike, as the most
dangerous man in this year's in
tramural competition. His brilliant
quarterbacking was a great asset
to the Sig Alph squad. Joe, a stu
dent in the College of Geology, is
6' and weighs in at 175.
Second string honors on the
All-U first team were a little more
hottly contested for. On the line,
Dick Geter edged out Sam Bell,
Sigma Chi for the fourth line po
sition by one vote. Geirer, 215
pound massive guard for Delta Tau
Delta, is the 6'2" Bus Ad junior of
baseball fame. Last season, Dick
twirled a nifty no-hitter for the
NU diamond crew. Geier hails
from Lincoln.
Rod Schroeder, Alpha Tau Ome
ga Bus Ad junior, was honorable
mention last year for All-U honors
and this season was the top vote
getter on the second string. Rod

pass formations. Schroeder stands
510 and tips the scales at 165

huskers then began playing ball
control, and the Cyclones tried
desperately to take the ball away,
but with little success.
The Huskers were paced by
Ekwall, who tallied 17 points on
seven and three free throws. Ren

Orange Bowl Feature
Thousands View King Orange Parade As
Millions More Watch Spectacle On TV
The few Nebraskans who were
fortunate enough to attend the
Orange Bowl Festivities saw snow
flutter through downtown Miami
last Friday night, but it was all
man-made. Warm breezes rip
pled the skirts and shirt sleeves
of some 350,000 men, women and
children watching the "snow"
glide past on twinkling floats.
It was Miami's big fiesta for
New Year's Eve the 21s an
nual King Orange Jamboree Pa
rade. Girls Galore
Pretty girls nestled among three
foot hibuscus flowers, majorettes
pranced and twirled their batons.
Neil Miller, Nebraska's twirling
drum major thrilled the crowds as
he tossed his baton high in the
air, and executed many difficult
movements with perfection. Ne
baska's band was the first uni
versity band to appear in the pa
rade. It was followed by the Blue
Devil's of Duke, the University of
Miami, and Michigan's famous
marching band.
For nearly two hours, the pro
cession rolled along, a picture of
color and sound. Television cam
eras took the balmy scene into
homes heated by furnaces instead
of sub-tropic air.
'America Sings'
Ninety-three floats participated
in the parade. This year's theme
was "America Sings". The theme
floats depicted scenes appropriate
to this motif.
The most expensive "float" was
not really a float but a Navy F-9F
Couger jet, costing over $500,000.
The biggest float was that of the
Air Force Training Center at Mi
ami International Airport. The
float was 70 feet long but the
size was not the only attraction
it was decorated with the five
prettiest WAF's in Florida.
From well-meaning, but unpre
tentious beginnings in 1933, the Or
ange Bowl football classic has
grown into one of America's major
sports events a spectacle sur

thrilled more than a half-million
spectators this year.
Miami's New Year's Day foot
ball classic, a child of the de
pression, was a post-season contest
for the University of Miami Hur
ricanes, and the first two games
were billed as the Palm Festival.
Began In 1934
They were played at Moore
Park before a handful of spec
tators. The Orange Bowl itself be
gan in 1934 as a Miami Chamber
of Commerce project with the idea
of an annual post-season game be
tween outstanding Northern and
Southern teams.
Miami's Orange Bowl venture is
purely civic. It is not controlled
by, or connected with any com
mercial interest, nor with any com
mercial sport.
The Flamingo Hotel on Bayshore
Road in Miami Beach was the
scene of much activity during the
week long stay of the Nebraska
family. Included in the group were
the team, its coaches and trainers,
and several other officials of the
Celebrities Present
Vacationing at the. same resort
with Nebraska was the well known
Mark Clark, who obviously was
taking a short absence from his
military obligations.
From all aspects, the entire trip
was very fine with the exception
of New Year's Day. During an
interview following the game.
Coach Glassford said "We knew
they were quick They've got a
fine team, quick in the backfield
and a lot faster up front." When
asked if the heat hurt his team,
Glassford replied to the effect
that it hurt in the first half but
it was not a major factor leading
to Nebraska's defeat. In conclus
ion, Bill expressed his appreciation
for the fine treatment that the
team received while in Miami.
The Orange Bowl committee and
the people of greater Miami went
all out for the Cornhuskers.
Best Entertainment
Various forms of entertainment
were arranged for the team each
night of their stay. One night Paul
Schnieder, head trainer, went with
the team to the Cope City, one
of Miami's finest nightclubs. The
dog races were on the schedule
for another night, and the story
has it that Ken Moore and Pev
Evans put their money on the right
greyhounds. Those interested in
fishing went deep sea fishing in
the afternoon.
The Orange Bowl Dinner honor
ing both teams was truly an ex
travaganza. The "bill of faire"
included a fine dinner and show
at the fabulous Fontainebleu re
sort hotel, America's largesf re
sort hotel on the fourteen-acre
Firestone estate.
Governors Attend
Among the distinguished guests
at the dinner were Nebraska's Gov
ernor Robert Crosby, and govef
nor-elect Victor Anderson. On be
half of the University, Chancellor
Clifford Hardin congratulated tha
Duke team on its vistory and expra
sed thanks to the Orange Bowl com
mittee for the fine time the Ne
braskans had in Miami.
Bob Smith and Bob Wagner,
co-captains of the team accepted
the 62 watches presented by tha
Orange Bowl committee to the Ne
braska squad recognizing Nebras
ka as a participant in the 1955
Orange Bowl Classic.
After the presentation Vaughn
Monroe entertained the crowd with
his latest hits. Dick Haymes
rounded out .the program with
many popular hit recordings.
It might be said that Florida,
the land of paradise, was a won
