8-7 Wrestling Record
raint Wins Award
it 'Stair ff Week'
By MAX KREITMAN
Sports Staff Writer
Charlie Bryant, an all-Big Seven
guard in football and an out
standing wrestler performer, has
been selected by The Nebraskan
as the second "Star of the Week"
on the strength of his excellent
season with Don Strasheim's wres
tling squad, compiling in nine dual
tests a record of eight wins and
The 177 pound performer was
considered for the honor last week
but his successful engagement with
Dale Blume in Kansas State meet,
Feb. 11, 1955, was overshadowed
by the sparkling cage perform
ances of Will Fagler, last week's
recipient of the "Star of the
Even "though Bryant and the
wrestling crew were not in action
last week, the staff felt his out
standing record of the past few
weeks, including a decision over
Iowa's John Winder, last year's
Big Ten 167-pound champ, was de
serving of the recognition.
Throughout the campaign Bryant
has been one of the double-barreled
sparks for Strasheim's matmen.
Arnold Morton has been the other
consistent winner for the Huskers.
He is the only other Cornhusker
batting over .500 in matches won
with a respectable 5-4 mark. Bry
ant's win over Winder in a jaunt
to Iowa University was his top
effort of the year and coupled with
his K-State victory brought him to
an 8-1 slate.
Wins Six Of Seven
Bryant began his grappling ca
reer as a sophomore, winning six
of seven matches. He shared 167-
and 177-pound honors with NebraS'
ka's Dave Ellsinger. His only loss
was to Bill Ong, Colorado's 177
pound mainstay and Big Seven
In his junior year, Bryant lost
four of ten matches but finished
third in the Big Seven meet at
Norman, Oklahoma, and third in
the Big Seven tourney. He bowed
in the semifinals.
A rugged guard bolstering the
center of the line for Glassford's
Orange Bowl squad, Bryant letter
fd two years in football and re
ceived many grid honors for his
'54 play. Among them were All
Big Seven and honorable mention
Ail-American honors and the tenth
The Start-early Theory
Hofstetter Used Hoe
Handle For Vaulting
Jim Hofstetter, Nebraska's finest
pole vaulter since the days of Don
Cooper, used the start-early theory
to develop into a top-flight vaulter.
The Husker senior made his ini
tial vault in his first years of grade
school. Using a hoe handle for a
pole, Jim's first performance was
over a cane pole placed across two
' "I tried a long time before I
got over that fishing pole," Jim
recalls, "but that really made me
interested in vaulting."
When he entered junior high Jim
naturally stayed with his pet event.

IN THE DARK about which cigarette to
smoke? Take a hint from the Droodle
above, titled: Two searchlight crews, one
asleep, qne enjoying better-tasting
Luckies. Your search is over when you
light up a Lucky. You'll find out why col
lege smokers prefer Luckies to all other
brands, as shown by the latest, greatest
college survey. Once again, the No. 1
reason: Luckies taste better. They taste
better, first of all, because Lucky Strike
means fine tobacco. Then, that tobacco is
toasted to taste better. "Its Toasted?'
the famous Lucky Strike process tones
up Luckies' light, good-tasting tobacco
to make it taste even better . . . cleaner,
fresher, smoother. So, enjoy the better
tasting cigarette. . . Lucky Strike.
