New Fieldhouse Looms
On NU Sports Horizon
Even the sports world has
dreams hovering on the horizon as
the University quietly celebrates
its 86th year of growth and de
velopment. "It's only a dream," Bill Orwig,
director of Husker athletics said,
but someday I would like to build
a fieldhouse a big one with a
hockey rink, additional basketball
facilities, an indoor track and lots
of room for the baseball team.
Speaking In regard to the long
range athletic plans of the Uni
versity, the big, personable boss
of the NU sports program said as
part of this dream he would also
like to see the south end of the
football stadium convertetd in to
a half oval seating extension.
John Bentley, publicity director
for the athletic department, said
the stadium capacity could be in
creased by ten or 15 thousand with
the additional seating facilities.
The stadium now holds 40,000.
Orwig emphasized his hope that
some time the NU campus could
field a hockey team. He said
hockey and football were the two
sports at Michigan State (Orwig's
former school) and he said he
thought with adequate facilities
5,000 or more fans could be enter
tained around the iced oval.

No Joy In Huskerville
Monday was a bad day for many
For basketball coach Jerry Bush
it was an especially bad one. Not
only was he fighting a slight at
tack of flu, a 100-degree tempera
ture and a penicillin needle, but
he had to watch his cagers fight
to the wire before bowing to the
onslaught of the Missouri Tigers.
For the four seniors playing
their last game before home fans,
it was a heart-breaking defeat.
Will Fagler, Stan Matzke, Arnold
Boich and Gus Renzelman all
turned in magnificent perform

Matzke played his usual fine)
floor game and added three cru
cial fielders from his favorite po
sitions around the free throw peri
meter and the corners.
Even the referees found no Joy
in the land of the Huskers. Keith
Thomas, from Kansas State, while
sheltering himself from a barrage
of refuse from the stands in the
first half, was heard to remark,
"If I wasn't paid 50 bucks a nite
for this job, I'd be darned if I'd
be out here."
