All three times the neighbors
from the Western Conference were
baffled by a tight zone defense.
Since Purdue is the fourth team
the zone will be tried on, it's prob
able the coaching fraternity in the
Big Ten has given many tips to
Purdue Coach Ray Eddy on the
make-up of the Husker attack.
Tne Boilermakers finished in a
surprise tie for third in the con
ference and have a firm nucleus
to repeat their 1955-56 finish.
The key man is Lamar Lundy,
6-6 center who serves as end on
the Purdue gridiron squad during
the fall. Lundy is an excellent re-
bounder and when he gets his
court legs back, he contributes
heavily to the scoring attack.
Purdue will offer height in oth
er positions, too.

more. Purdue has plenty strength un
der the boards and on defense
but at times in the early season
has trouble mounting a strong of
fense. Their defensive strength
shows up in last year's statistics
when the Boilermakers tied Iowa
for defensive honors in the con
ference. The Huskers have overcome
their troubles that plagued them
all through the previous campaign.
First, they have a consistent bal
anced attack. The Bushmen have
had five different high point men
in five' games.
Secondly, they have been able
to keep the foe on its toes at all
times instead of suffering obvious
mental lapses during crucial mo
ments of the game.

The Sports Illustrated awards will honor 25 senior letttermen in the
year 1931. Its purpose is described by Managing Editor Sidney L.
James of Sports Illustrated: "This time the honors will got, not to the
dashing youngsters of 1956, but to a nationally chosen group of their
football predecessors of 25 years ago who have most distinguished
themselves in their chosen fields of life. We believe that our Silver
Anniversary All-America will do much to emphasize the pursuit of
the rounded human values in which athletics and education are joined."
One of the 81 nominees is Charles M. Justice, industrial relations
analyst for the Atomic Energy Commission in Albuquerque, New

Nebraska and Minnesota will
resume football relations in. 1959,
according to Athletic Director Bill
The series will be resumed on
Sept. 26, 1959, at Minneapolis, with
the Cornhusker campus the follow
ing year on Sept. 24. Both games
will be Minnesota's opener but the
1959 contest will be preceded by
an encounter with the Texas Long
horns for the Cornhuskers.
While the Golden Gophers hold
a heavy edge in the long series
between the two rivals, dating
back to 1900, some of the great Ne
braska games of the past were
played with Minnesota.
In the 30 games that have been
played since the first one in 1900,
Minnesota has won 23, while the
Huskers have been victorious in
five. Two games have ended in
The last Husker victory was
in 1950 when Bobby Reynolds and
Ron Clark paced the Cornhuskers
to a 32-26 win in an offensive
Nebraska's Orange Bowl-bound
1954 team was downed by the
Gophers 19-7 in the opening game
of the season. It was that game
that several members of the coach
ing staff called Nebraska's best
effort of the season.
Two non-conference dates in
1959 and one in 1960 remain to
be filled, Orwig said.
