By BOB M ARTEL
ebraskan Sportt Reporter
A cold second half again plagued
,e Nebraska Comhuskers Satur
day night as they fell prey to the
Kansas Jayhawks 60 to 56.
Nebraska led 35-25 at the half
,nd seemed well on their way to
upsetting Phog Allen's Lincoln f are-
Led by J"1 Kubacki's set shoot
ing and Rex Ekwall's inside play,
the Huskers thoroughly outplayed
ty Kansans during the first half.
Chuck Smith's jump shot from
the side with 13 minutes gone in the
grst half knotted the score at 10
jH. Don Smidt followed with a
jong set shot which put Nebraska
ahead 12-10. The Huskers held on
to their lead although Gene Els
tun's foul shot with three minutes
left narrowed it to 27-25.
A pair of set shots by Kubacki
a basket each by Smith and
Smidt gave the Nebraskans their
half time margin.
A tight Kansas sone plus a pair
of Jawhawks by the name of Mau
rice King and Elstun helped spell
after-intermission disaster for the
These two Kansas forwards com
bined their talents to erase a ten
point deficit and take the lead in
just ten minutes of the second
half. From then on the Jayhawks
were in control.
Kubacki's foul shot and Ekwall's
tip in with 32 seconds left in the
contesj, making the score 58-56 was
the best the gap could be closed. A
Kansas stall in the last five minutes
of play was effective in keeping
the ball away from the Huskers.
Ekwall and Kubacki finished the
contest with 15 points each, while
King and Elstun led the victors
with 17 points apiece.
Nebraska will close its home sea
son Saturday night, playing host to
the Sooners from Oklahoma.

Wonderful green years? . . .
As the basketball season heads into the twilight of another year,
I is evident that the Nebraska Comhuskers are heading for one of their
worst seasons in a long time. With only three games left, it seems that
fee best the Huskers can come out with is a 7-13 record.
Oklahoma seems to be the only team the Comhuskers will be
tble to down. Their other two games, one with Iowa SUe and one
ith Missouri are both on the road.
Though this editor stands behind the athletes and coaches at Ne
braska one-hundred per-cent, be can't help but take a pestemistic at
Cade. What reason or reasons lie behind the unsuccessful campaigns of
fee Huskers? I feel the answer is evident.
All's well . . .
Hy answer, lies in the fact that the Huskers haven't been able to

Despite the fact that they copped
five firsts, the Nebraska freshmen
bowed to the Kansas yearlings in
a postal meet, 56V4-47V4. It was
their second postal reversal. They
bowed to the Colorado freshmen
earlier to the year. They tied Mis

Keith Gardner put on his usual
one-man show by gaining four
firsts. He won the 60-yard dash
with a time of :06.S. In the 60
yard high hurdles, he won with
the clocking of :07.5 and broke
the tape with a time of :49.8
in the 440. He climaxed his twenty
point performance with a winning
leap of 22-11 in the broad jump.
Kansas earned two firsts from
their highly publicized freshman,
Wilt Chamberlin. The lanky Kan
san won the shot put with an ef
fort of 47-2 and came back to win
the high jump with a 6-5 mark.
KU's Bill Bidwell came as close
as anyone to beating the yearling
from Jamacia in the 60-yard dash
by tying Gardner. The Jayhawk
copped a first in the mile with Tom

the Coliseum last Saturday night.
Failure of the Huskers to offer
competition in the 123 and 137

In the matches in which they
participated, Nebraska broke even.
Captain Arnold Morton remained
undefeated in the 157-pound class
by decisioning Don Mortimer, 7-4.
