8-1 Wrestling Record
iryainift Woos Award
r 'Ster ff Week'
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
one loss.
Decisions Blume
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
Week" award.
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
ed two years in football and re
ceived many grid honors for his
'54 play. Among them were All
Big Seven and honorable mention
All-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.
The fairer Side'

but to do or die.
Since the basketball tournament
is double elimination, there is ac
tually nothing definite set on who
stands where. Also ping pong has
not been in progress long enough
to tell anything. So much for that.
It was really nothing.
This is the moment you've been
waiting for when again the in

and not even tell you but that
would make this column awfully
short so here goes: KAPPA ALPHA
Although he lettered in football and
basketball at Kearney, his main
interest remained with track and
the pole vault.
"My biggest disappointment
came in my junior year at Kear

vault for the State Meet, I broke
my kneecap and couldnt compete
at Lincoln. It was really a let
down after I had been working to

dividends his senior year. He

his childhood ambition of compet

where he placed second in the
When Jim entered the University,
Don Cooper, first collegian valuter
to clear 15 feet, was still at Ne
braska completing studies towards
his graduation in January.
"That was the best break I had,"
the 21-year old accounting major
said. "Don Cooper taught me more
about pole vaulting in a semester
than I had picked up in all my
previous practice."
As a sophomore for the Huskers,
Jim remembers an incident which
didnt help his vaulting any.

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. "Ifs Toasted'1
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.
