day evening and left Monday on
an informal tour of the state with
Athletic Director Bill Orwig. They
planned to visit promising track
candidates and attend the National
AAU meeting at - Colorado this
been track coach
at Georgetown University since
1949 and was named to the Nebras
ka post last week by Orwig.
Th 12 grants-in-aid available to
the track team will be awarded
to those who warrant aid, Sevigne
said. He said that it would take
time to bring the track program
up to the level of the other three
so-called majc sports, football,
baseball and basketball.
Orwig pointed out that track -was
the only major program in which
Nebraska was not among the con
tenders for top Big Seven honors.
Sevigne said that the support of
alumni and other persons through
out the state would be a necessary
part of the success of the Univer
sity's track program. It is neces
sary, he said, to sell the state's
top track talent on the University
and its athletic, program.

Red Leads Black
In Collegiate Poll
Red was declared the "sexiest"
color by 66 per cent of those
sampled In a poll by the Tufts
College Weekly. Slinky black gar
ncred 25 per cent of the votes.
Nine per cent of the voters all
men gave their preference to lav
ender. Women polled by the college
weekly were almost unanimous In
voting for "fiery, brazen, and ac
tive" red as the most sexy color.
Analysing the data, the Tufts
Weekly concludes that "the bold
red color of the Stars and Stripes
still represents courage, as it did
In the days of Betsy Ross."
