A rugged University of Indiana
football machine guided by the ac
curate right arm of Gene "Chick"
Cichowski squeezed by a deter
mined Husker eleven last Satur
day before 39,000 screaming fans.
Indiana's ability to use the for
ward pass in setting up the touch
down plays really proved to be
the Huskers' undoing. .
Cichowski, whom Mel Allen calls
Cverated In the 1956 issue of Kick
off magazine, looked like the Sam
my Baugh of old days.
The 22-year-old senior from Chi-
Courtesy Sunday Journal and Star
cago, Illinois connected with 10
out of 13 passes for 103 yards.
Nebraska kicked off to Indiana
to open the ball game and kept
the Hoosiers from going anywhere
on four plays.
Cichowski's punt rolled dead on
the Husker 47 yard line and 10
plays later Jerry Brown plunged
over from the one yard line for
the first Nebraska touchdown. Lar
ry Naviaux added the extra point
end the Cornhuskers led 7-0.
Midway in the second quarter
44 yard drive spearheaded by the
tine running of Brown, -Frank Nap-

in Greenlaw's first tally of the

For the second time in three
years, the University chapter has
copped the Phi Epsilon Kappa Ef

Originated only three years ago,
the Nebraska chapter won the ini
tial award for the school year
2953-54, but was bested by Los
Angeles State College of Los An
geles the following year. Nebras
ka has again been named winner,

of "physical education for men and

The classes of 1936, 1926, 1916,

Indiana Beats NU On Last Half Passing
season. Naviaux again converted
and the score stood at 14-0 in fa
vor of the home team.
Cichowski then took to the air
to set up Dave Whitsell's one yard
scoring plunge. Cichowski's point
after touchdown attempt was wide
and the clubs took their half time
rest, with the scoreboard reading
14-6 in favor of Nebraska.
The third quarter was highlight
ed by some fine defensive work
by the Elliottmen. Early in thel
stanza the Hoosiers drove to a
first down situation on the Ne
braska two yard line.
Four downs later when the dust
had cleared the Huskers had not
only held their rivals but had driv
en them back to the seven yard
line. Jack Fleming, Max Kitzelman
and Nappl were very unfriendly
to the visitors during this series
Coach Bernle Crimmin's squad
closed the gap early in the final
peiod when Bob Fee plowed over
from the two yard line. Cichowski
made his conversion good leaving
the Huskers with a slim 14-13 lead.
Forcing Nebraska to punt, the
Hoosiers combined an aerial at
tack and the fine running of full
back Bob Fee to score the game's
deciding six pointer. This march
was topped by Fee's second touch
down of the afternoon putting the
visitors in the lead 19-14.

The final score was 54-12 with
Oklahoma ort the long end. They
set a modern collegiate winning
record of 34 straight, and extended
their Big Seven winning string to

Tommy McDonald and Clendon
Thomas, the touchdown twins, were
again instrumental in Oklahoma's
win. McDonald averaged six yards
per carry and scored twice; Thom

for one first-half touchdown, 38 for
