THE NEBRASKAN wo mm 12)US. i National, Big 7 Marks Threatened Friday 1 One Man Show Gymnast Bruce Riley Captures Third 'Star Of Week Award' By BRUCE BRUGMANN Sports Editor 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 ing victory. 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 place. 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. Unnoticed Team 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.

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.

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 er. The purpose of the honor is to recognized anoutstanding achievement and to give more coverage an recognition to some of the fine athletes participating in the University's minor athletic program .

RILEY 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 schools. 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." By BRUCE BRUGMANN Sports Editor 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. . .1 ill. il- J Tne Husxers wiu Dame ior inira 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.
