Jim Murphy, of Columbus, has
again been chosen as "Star of the
Week" by the Nebraskan Staff.
Murphy atood out for the Husk
ers in their losing cause to Kan
sas State. He was his usual self
on offense in opening big holes in
the right side of the line for such
men as Larry Naviaux, George
Harshman, and Jerry Brown to
On defense Murphy once again
was great. Several time after
Husker punts Murphy got through
to spill the Wildcat backs for lit
tle or no gain at all. He also was
in on a lot of stops in the line.
He was called on for even a bet
ter performance the second half
when his running mate at guard
LaVerne Torczon was on the bench
suffering from a injury from the
first half of play.
Art Klein, a junior letterman,
relieves Murphy occasionally but
the extra experience makes Murph
a little rougher to contend with."
Coach Pete Elliott said that the
movies again gave the Columbus
senior a high grade for this game.
Elliott once said when asked why
Murphy and Torczon didn't get
more praise that they always play
a good game so he looked for
someone else to praise.
Murphy is a terrific competitor
and always has been a fellow who
liked to play football. Murphy says
that he would rather train and
work hard all of the time rather
than not have anything to do. When

Sugar Bowl Loses Prestige ...
It looks as if the Sugar Bowl will become a post-season meeting
ground for strictly southern teams. . .
The Louisiana legislature has passed a bill forbidding white and
Negro athletes to perform together or against one another.
That will undoubtedly limit the schedule of LSU and other Louisiana
colleges to that of playing southern schools.
Many of the major colleges have already cancelled scheduled foot
ball games with LSU and the Sugar Bowl Holiday Basketball Festival
has been thrown into a turmoil with the withdrawal of most of the
Cerv To Kansas City . . .
Former Cornhusker athlete Bob Cerv has been sold by the New
York Yankees to the Kansas City Athletics. The price is undisclosed.
Cerv batted .301 on the season and had one hit in one trip to the plate
in the '56 World Series.
Bob, who makes his home in Lincoln, is one of the few men In
baseball history to hit a home run as a pinch hitter in a World Series.
This was accomplished in 1955.
I believe that if given the opportunity to play every day, Cerv will
be of great value to the "A's."
Hoop Squad Looks Better . . .
Optimism is always at a high point when an athletic team begins
its pre-season workouts but it looks as though this can be justified in
the case of Jerry Bush's basketball squad.
Last season lack of height and strong bench strength hampered the
Huskers. Although it is too early to analyze the depth and strength of
the club, it looks as though Rex Ekwall will have some help under
Terry Howard (6'7"), Ron Parson (6'8"), Bob Karry (6'6") and

Fall "Spectacular" . . .
The most outstanding half time entertainment of the football sea
son is on tap this Saturday. Band Day, which was originated at Ne
braska when John K. Selleck was business manager of athletics, will
be one of the features at the Indiana-Nebraska game.
There will be 66 bands comprised of 3,686 young musicians to pro
vide the annual splash of color at half time. It should be tremendous
to see and hear so try not to miss it.
