Big News From Kreit ...
Max Kreitman, former sports editor of the Nebraskan, dropped by
the office to deliver a few choice words on the Kansas University basket
ball squad. Max was in Lawrence Friday evening and took in the an
nual Kansas Varsity-Freshman game. His description of the outstanding
play of Wilt The Stilt" Chamberlain was no news to us.
Kreitman seems to fell that the Kansas squad could take the Big
Seven championship even without Chamberlain. He also had plenty of
praise for the KU yearlings indicating that the final score did not reveal
the true picture. Putting himself out on a limb Max gave me permission
to quote him on the following statement. He said "From all indications,
I believe Kansas will win the Big Seven irown." With that enlightening
piece of news, Max bounced out the door.

Anyone who took in the Kansas State-Nebraska Freshman contest
last Saturday afternoon might have thought that they were watching a
hockey game and that on every play tse referee was dropping he puck
in the center of the ice and letting the players fight over it.
It wasnt a contest of who could carry the ball furthest, but who
could fumble for the most yardage. On one series of plays the K-State

fusion looking as though they may be able to give their big brothers
of the Varsity squad some help next season. Outstanding were Ben
Cacioppo of Omaha and Bob Brandt of Denison, Iowa. Both halfbacks,
they led the "Little Red" squad to victory, while Pat Fitzgerald of
Boys Town, Dan Olsen of Grand Island and Bob Fleming of Sterling
were bulwarks on defense.
