By BOB MAR TEL
Statff Sports Writer
With Nebraska the only team
playing a non-conference club, the
Big Seven standings should under
go a slight change this weekend.
The first place Colorado Buffs
will journey to Ames, Iowa, to
oppose the last place Iowa State
Cyclones. From a Cyclone point
of view there has been little joy
in the past two meetings, Colorado
winning 20-0 and 40-0. The Buffs,
riding along as surprise leaders
in the conference, have defeated
Kansas State S4-0 ; and Kansas
Iowa State has been beaten by
Nebraska 9-7 and Kansas 25-14. In
both losing causes, the Cyclones
looked good but were beaten by
last minute tallies. Colorado is a
point favorite to annex its third
straight conference victory.
The nation's number one foot
ball squad will descend upon Law
rence, Kansas, tomorrow to buck
heads with Chuck Mather's Univer
sity of Kansas eleven.
The Oklahoma Sooners, just a
jump ahead of an excellent Mich
igan State team this week in the
national ratings, approach the Kan
sas tiff protecting three precious
consecutives: 54 conference games
in a row without defeat, 109 -straight
scored in, and 33 consecutive vic
tories. The Sooners have only one Big
Seven tilt under their belt in
which they dumped Kansas State
66-0. The Jayhawkers have a one
and one conference record on the
season. They dropped a close one
to Colorado 26-25 and defeated
Iowa State 26-14 last week in Ames.
Oklahoma is an odds on favorite
to whip the Jayhawkers.
The "close one" of the weekend
should be at Manhattan, Kansas,
where Missouri tangles with Kan
termen returning for the Huskers.
As a sophomore in 1954 Ekwall
was a regular and was one of the
big guns for Jerry Bush in his
first year as coach of the Huskd
Last year Ekwall played an ex
cellent brand of ball and at the
close of the season was chosen as
a member of the All-Big Seven
This is quite an honor for any
one and he did the trick despite
the fact that he had to fight off
a cold the biggest part of the sea
son. Ekwall also won honorable
mention on some All-American
teams across the nation.
Bush is expecting great things
of him in his senior year. The
coach said that he should be a
great leader for the Husker five
this year. His experience and great
desire make him a very capable
Ekwall and seventeen other cap
able hoopsters began their work
outs this week. The squad is still
working mainly on conditioning
and fundamentals in the early
Bush said the squad are all look
ing very good for this early in
the workouts. One big difference
in the team this year should be
that five lettermen who last year
were sophomores have picked up
some very valuable experience.
The coaches seem to hink that
some of them who were very ner
vous and tense last" year have
picked up a lot of poise.
Bush said that a lot of the suc
cess of the squad would depend
on the development of the big guys
as Ron Parsons of Cleveland, Ohio;
Bob Harry, of York; and Terry
Howard, of Elkhorn. Parsons and
Harry are both sophomores while
Howard saw limited action last

be playing their first Big Seven
contest of the season. In non
league battles, the Tigers have
defeated North Dakota State, 42-0,
while losing to Oregon State 19-13,
Purdue 16-7 and SMU 33-27.
Against Purdue and SMU, the

Four High Schools
Four high schools were awarded
N Club scholarship trophies for the
school year of 1955-'56, Bill Orwig,
athletic director at the university,
The winners were Walton,
Dodge, Neligh and Lexington.
Awards are made on the basis
of a comparison of the grades of
the school's lettermen figured
against the average grade of the
In each instance, the athletes of
the winning schools had higher
grade averages than the school av
erage. The N Club scholarship trophies
were first awarded in 1927. They
were given annually until 1943-'44
and then discontinued because of
the war. The awards were revived
a year ago.

advised to sign up in the office
in the basement of the Union.
Working days are Monday, Tues
day and Thursday.
So far the squad has shown a lot
of enthusiasm and hustle. With
several positions open everyone
will be fighting for a place on the
The Husker head mentor looks
for the Big Seven to have another
good season with a tight race for
the title. Kansas looks like the
team to beat with Wilt Chamber
lain and a host of other fine soph
omores plus several lettermen
from last season. Bush also looks
for Kansas State and Iowa Staet
to be especially rough.
The Nebraska freshman squad
begins its formal workouts on the
first of November. When they be
gin conditioning they will practice
in the afternoons with the varsity
practice being held in the evenings
prior to the season's opener No
vember 30 at UCLA.
Some of the top frosh expected
to show are: Bill Lindholm, who
owns a very accurate jump shot;
Hershel Turner, from Shortridge
High School in Indianapolis; Willy
Fitzpatrick, 6'4" from Sedalia, Mo;
Wayne Huster from Lincoln North
east; Don Raver of Craig; Dick
Shipwright of Pender, and Bob
Mayo 67" from Brooklyn.
Fitzpatrick and Mayo both have
a lot of experience from playing
ball in the service. Fitzpatrick was
stationed for a while at the Lincoln
These men and many others who
will try out for the sport should
give the Huskers an o t h e r fine
bunch of freshmen.
