hearsal Saturday afternoon and the
results produced both some good
ana had news.
The Red sauad outscored the
Whites in the scrimmage, 19-7 and
the contest was bright from the
fact that the number of fumbles
was cut from about thirty of one
week ago to a dozen, a number
which xs about average for a spring
On the bad side was the fact the
Huskers have lost two of their
brightest prospects for the remain
der of the spring drills.
Roger Krhounek, brilliant frosh
ace from Lincoln, who was working
with the first White team, suffered
a badly sprained ligament in his
right leg after being tackled. A
cast was placed on the leg and the
young speedster was to undergo
surgery early this morning. His
future with the Huskers is greatly
The other injury was suffered by
Rich King of Baden, Pa. King, a
center for the White team suffered
a severe ankle sprain. His ankle
was also placed in a cast
The White team scored its only
touchdown in the first period for
a 7-0 lead when George Harshman,
junior quarterback, went over
from the one yard line on a sneak.
Harshman also booted the extra
The Reds got back into the game
in the second period when Dick
Prusia intercepted a, pitchout and
went eight yards to acore. Claire
Boroff converted and the score
Leo George and Larry Naviaux
scored the final two touchdowns
for the Reds in the fourth period.
George scored from the one to
cap a 70-yard drive and Naviaux
went over from five yards out.
Each time a conversion try by
Naviaux was bad.
Naviaux had the longest run of
the game, a 34-yard gallop on a
pitchout which set up his touch
Darrell Pinkston, ex-Grand Is
land whiz, was one of the games
standouts. The speedy halfback won
nine letters during his prep ca
reer in the Grand Island city. He
was running with the number one
backfield and looks very much
like a top prospect for next season.

The time Is Bearing ...
All-Sports Day is just around the corner and Cornhusker fol
lowers will be given an opportunity to see the Husker athletic squads
Leading off the day's sporting events will be a baseball game
with Offutt Air Base furnishing the opposition. Game time is set
for 10 a.m.
At 11, the Nebraska tennis team will play host to tht Iowa
At noon, the Stadium will be the scene of the varsity-freshman
track meet. v .
. Here the fans will have the chance to see the cinder crew of
next year show their talent against the varsity squad. All eyes will
be focused on the outdoor running of freshman sensation, Keith
Gardner. The youngster showed great running ability on the indoor
The highlight of the all-day affair will be the varsity-alumni foot
ball tilt. Assembled for the alums is a crew that could rank with the
tops in the nation.
Included on this list are such names as Charlie Toogood, Bob
Smith, Torn" Novak, Don Strasheim, Fran Nagle, Bobby Reynolds, Bob
Wagner, John Edwards, Moon Mullins, Bob Oberlin and a host of
Never in the history of this tilt have the alums emerged vic
torious. However, taking everything into consideration, I feel almost
safe in predicting an alumni win.
At 4:30 p.m. Jake Geier's gymnastics crew will give an exhibition
at the Coliseum. This will be followed by a swimming demonstration
that will end the day's festivities.
So from ten in the morning until five at night, Husker backers
will be treated with sporting events from almost every phase of
athletics. It promises to be a fine day and the men who are respon
sible for this ensemble are to be highly congratulated. A good way
of saying thanks for their efforts will be to get out and support these
teams. One ticket will allow a spectator to all the events.
Give them time ...
A small tidbit was found in one "of the area newspapers that
set me to thinking.
A so-called Nebraska booster commented after watching the
scrimmage two Saturdays ago that the Husker football bosses are
in for a long winter.
After watching the two squads fumble throughout most of the
workout he felt the team wouldn't be able to field eleven players of
If this man was a real booster, he might have realized that this
is really too early to draw any conclusions, good or bad, about the
Coach Pete Elliott said, "These" boys have the desire to play and
never seem to give up. This is one trait you can't teach a fellow, it
has to be inside of him."
This editor only hopes that the "big" backers don't forsake the
new mentor in midstream.
I feel that if they stick by him and work with him instead of
against him, the former Oklahoma assistant will bring the Huskers
to the top where they belong. The Nebraskan staff will be in back
of him 100 per cent, win, lose or draw . . . let's hope the rest of the
