Yesterday the Huskers finished
their rough work but there was no
scrimmage. They worked at polish
ing their offenses and defenses
which will be used against the
visitors from Ames.
This marks the first conference
game of the season for both teams
and it is a important milestone
for the Huskers in their bid for
a trip to the Orange Bowl.

Bennie Dillard are back at full
strength and both are slated to

field situation considerably as both
men were originally slated for
starting berths before being in

Probable Husker Starting Line
up: Marlin Hilding of Red Oak,
Iowa, continues to be at the num
ber one left end position for the
Huskers. A junior, Hilding current
ly ranks fourth in the Big Seven
in pass receiving. He has grabbed
three tosses for 56 yards.
Don Kampe, also of Red Oak,
Iowa, will once again be at left
tackle. Kampe is going after his
second varsity letter. In the first
two contests Kampe has looked
very good on both offense and de
and has drawn some fine praise
from the Husker coaching staff.
Co-captain LaVerne Torczon will
be one of the big cogs in the Husk
er forward wall. Torczon was voted
star of the week after the South

shoulder' injury in the Ohio State
last Saturday he showed up very
well. "Tarzan" was slightly in
jured last week but the left guard
is again running at full speed.
Bob Berguin, also a- Husker Co
captain, has done an excellent job
the first two weeks of the season
at center and will be called on
again Saturday to carry a heavy
load with Kitzelman out of action.
The third Co-captain Jim Murphy
of Columbus, will start at right
guard. Murphy won star of the
week honors last week as he
looked like the outstanding Husk
er in the Ohio State game. Murphy
is doing real well considering that
he set out most of the 1955 season
with a broken leg.
Big Jim Wheeler, 240 pounder
from Milan, Illinois, again gets the
nod at right tackle. Wheeler won
this job shortly before the season
started and has been doing a very
creditable job. Despite his weight
the junior letterman has very good
speed and always makes it rough
on the opponents.

two contests for a .600 percentage
and 84 10181 yards.
Bill Hawkins will start at left
halfback. The speedy Beatrice man
has been very successful in shift
ing from tackle the position at
which he lettered last fall. In two
games he has carried the ball
15 times and has gained 143 yards
good for second in the conference.
Hawkins also is tied for second
in the scoring department with 12
points to his credit.
Phi Psis And Sig Alphs
Advance In IM Football

Phi Psis 25, Farmhouse 0
Phi Kappa . Psi scored its sec
ond shut-out of the season with
a 25-0 victory over the Farmhouse
Thursday. In its first outing, Phi
Psi shut-out Kappa Sigs 12-0.
Farmhouse with its traditional
running game failed to dent the
Phi Psi defense.
Phi Psi on the other hand, scored
all its touchdowns on passes.
Quink Moore passed for two,
both to John Haessler. Jack
Irwin also threw two, one to Jon
Appleget and the other to Heas

Psi featured Moore, Irwin and

Larry Naviaux another fine
sophomore will start at right half
back. He ranks third in the con
ference in rushing behind Hawk
ins and Floyd of Kansas. Naviaux
has gained 112 yards in two games.
The hard running Jerry Brown
again gets the starting nod at
fullback. Brown has a lot of desire
and a lot of drive which helps him
in gaining yardage. He also is a
fine defensive man and works
very well as a blocker to help
spring his teammates loose on
The Second Husker unit.
Clarence Cook, a MXcCook jun
ior college transfer, has looked
very well at left end in the first
two games. Cook stands 6'4-' and
has a lot of desire. With a little
more experience he should develop
into a fine college end.
Mai Dohrrnan, of Kearney, has
been running at Peterson's left
tackle position this week and may
work there Saturday. Peterson is
listed as doubtful because of a
case of tonsilitus. Dohrrnan was
an all-state fullback at Kearney
and was shifted to guard while
playing on the freshman team last
year. Later on he was shifted from
guard to tackle.
Done Rhoda another big guy is at
left guard on the second unit.
Rhoda does a fine job of receiving
Torczon and is a good replacement
for the all Big Seven tackle next
season. Rhoda lettered as a tackle
Bob Lyall and Dick Prusia will
alternate at the number two center
position which as been vacated by
Kitzelman's injuries. Both men
were squadsmen last season but
didn't play enough to letter. How
ever, they have a lot of hustle
and could develop fast.

In one of the best played games
Wednesday, the Sig Alphs edged
the Phi Gams 13-6.
The first quarter was a score
less tie with both teams batting
hard. During the second period
the SAE's put on a drive that car
ried them to the Phi Gam 10
yard line. On the last play of the
half, Wally Bryans passed to Bob
Falk for a touchdown. The half
ended 6-0 Sig Alph.
Walt Murphy intercepted a pass
in the third quarter and ran 25
yards for a touchdown to put the
Phi Gams back in the ball
The SAE's iced the game in the
fourth quarter as Bryans again
passed for a touchdown. This time
to Mike Sht.';to.
The Phi Gams showed three
fine blockers. Bob Benter, Walt
Blore. and Jerry Dirks. Murphy
played a good game in the back
Wally Bryans threw two touch
down passes and did some fine
running for the Sig Alphs. Mike
Shatto and Roy Mierhenry threw
some timely blocks.
B. Palace 0
Farmhouse scored its second
win of the season with a 27-0
whitewashing of the Brown Palace
Wednesday. The Farmhouse at
tack centered around the running
of Jerry Svoboda and the passing
of Ron Geiszer.
The first half was a fairly even
game. Geister threw a touchdown
pass on the last play of the quar
ter to give Farmhouse a 6-0 lead.
The second half was all Farm

third period and added 14 more
in the fourth.

coaches for his fine right end

ice in the next two seasons.
