Gymnast Bruce Riley Captures
Third 'Star Of Week Award'
By BRUCE BRUGMANN
Bruce Riley, versatile Husker
gymnast, has captured the third
Nebraskan "Star of the Week
Award" on the strength of a ter
rific one man show in the All-College
Invitational Gymnastic Cham
pionship Meet in Denver Saturday
to spark the NU squad to a smash
Riley, in copping three first plac
es on the high bar and flying rings
and winning a fourth in the side
horse and third on the trampoline,
eneded up with 66 placement points
12 more than the entire .K-State
gymnasts could muster for second
Paced by Riley, Dan Fogel, Don
Hodge, Wayne Strickler and Bert
Linn, the Husker squad placed first
r second in all but one event and
compiled a 150 point total. Colo
rado had 53 points and KU took
third with 27.
Throughout the year Riley, a
husky, medium-sized junior, has
been a vital cog on the most un
noticed, but one of the best, NU
teams. The gymnastic squad has
a 10-1 record, losing only to Iowa,
a power in the Big Ten.
Riley is a versatile competitor
and enters all gymnastic events.
His pets, however, are the free
exercise, hiehbar, the parallel bars
and tumbling. Garnering most of
his points in' these events, though
still placing high in the flying rings,
the sidehorse and the trampoline,
tue agile junior has been beaten in
total points in only one meet this
year. Sam Bailey, a transplanted

Sorry but there just is not any
more Rifle Club this year, so there
you are. You see, the sergeant
seems to have another duty that
night, and you just cant hardly
find them sergeants no more. Fun
niest thing, be seemed to think his
armv duty had precedent over Rifle
Club. Really cant understand it.
If you happen to be a house rep
resentative, you had best be at the
n mwtintf tomorrow at 5:00.
Quite important, actually, because
filings are going to be discussed
and also this will be the time you
will receive a list of people in your
house who are eligible to vote in
the W.A.A. election.
Finger of scorn upon me. Humb
lest apologies to one Sarol Wiltse
for my inferring in my column
that she was a loser by making
eight points. Actually you see, I
was referring to the Council as a
whole as losers, and Sarol was
really the best of the losers; there
fore, makingher almost a winner.
Sorry Sarol, wouldn't want to break
tip a happy home.
U of Nebr. will certainly be heard
from at the AFCW Convention in
Omaha March 4th and 5th. Dot
Frank will be a discussion leader
on "How to Stimulate Interest in
Officiating," Buzz Bazant will sum
marize the discussion in "Co-operative
Sports." and, of course Miss
Mulvany will be guest speaker.

Riley himself once mentioned his
philosophy before a meet. "What
always do," he said, "is never
try to win. I just try to do my
best and hope that I'm perform
ing up to my capabilities."
The "Star of the Week Award"
is the third in a series which will
be, continued throughout the semest

to recognized anoutstanding
achievement and to give more

Floridian at Iowa University and
the top gymnast in the Big Ten
as a freshman, nipped Riley in an
earlier meet this year.
Riley, an Omaha boy, was
wrestler in ihigh school. While
watching the high school gymnastic
crew work out, he developed an in
terest and did some work on his
own. In 1951 he came to the Uni
versitv and watched a match be
tween Minnesota and Nebraska.
Nebraska lost the meet, a close
one. but Riley liked what he saw
in Geier's squad and decided to
come to Lincoln in spite of at- j
tractive wrestling and gymnastic
scholarships from many other
Wen-Liked By Mates
A cartoonist in his own right,
Riley is a quiet, unassuming lad,
well-liked by his teammates. "He
always works out on his own and
knows exactly what to do," com
mented Geier. "And he is never
too busy to help the other members
on the squad or some high school
fellows watching him."

Big Seven swimming records are
expected to fall like domino rows
as Iowa State and Oklahoma, na
tionally ranked swimming teams,
will compete in the annual Big Sev
en Conference Swimming Cham
pionships to be held in the Coli
seum pool Friday and Saturday.

place laurels with Colorado and
Kansas. Captain Cal Bentz of the
NU tank clan said the meet should
provide "razorsharp competition"
with the University squad prospects
for a third place slot "very good."
Last Saturday the Huskers sub
merged the KU swimmers in the
Coliseum nool by a 63-21 margin.
Because of the times already
posted by swimmers this year, few
conferences marks are expected to
stand. At least two national rec
ords in the 400-yard free style re
lav and the 100-yard backstroke
will face heavy fire.
The Iowa State mermen, rated
by their Coach Jack McGuire as
breaststroke time in the nation, an
Sandy Stewart and Jim Velleau,
two brilliant sprinters. McKevitt
has clocked such outstanding times
as 2:06.6 in the 2?0-yard free style;
32.9 in the 150-yard individual
medley; and a 50.8 in the 100-
yard free style.
Oklahoma, swinging into Lincoln
with one of its finest swimming
teams in the school's history, builds
around a corps of five South Af
ricans, Granam jonnston ana ret-
er Duncan in the distances, Lin
Meiring and Mel Van Helsdingen
in the backstroke and Ernst De
Jong in diving. qTom Gilbert and
Wally Snow, of Colorado University,
two of the Midwest's top divers,
will renew old rivalries in the three
and ten foot diving categories.
