come the Cornhuskers back from
Kansas City and the Bushmen
showed their appreciation by drub
bing a tired Colorado quintet 74-52.
Nebraska jumped into a quick
10-4 lead shortly, after the opening
tipoff and from then on it was a
one sided contest.
Little Gary Reimers was all over
the court as he poured 16 points
through the hoop and held the
highly touted Dave Mowbray to
just three field goals.
The loss of center Jim Jocheros
and captain Bob Helzer was very
apparent in the Buffalo attack.
Don Walker and Leo Hayward,
who replaced Jochems at the pivot
post could only tally two field goals
The Husker one-three-one de
fense worked like a charm. Colo
rado had to do most of its shooting
from the outside and with Mow'
brav tied in knots they did not
pose much of a threat.
Lyle Nannen, junior guard from
Syracuse, got the starting nod over
Jim Kubacki. "Chink" looked very
good in his home debut. He was
all hustle on defense and added
eight points "to the Cornhusker's
As usual, Rex Ekwall was his
brilliant self. He was a demon
off both backboards and led the
Nebraska scoring with 18 points as
he burned the nets with amazing
regularity. The Holmesville, Ne
braska senior is on his way to his
finest season and should break
Jim Buchanan's scoring record
without too much trouble.
The Buffs, who have been on the
road the last couple of weeks,
showed signs of being road weary.
"Sox" Walseth's crew left Boulder
several weeks ago and headed for
the west coast. After playing a
pair of games with Washington,
they embarked for Kansas City
where they dropped the champion
ship contest to Kansas. The
Walsethmen then made a beeline
for Miami where they defeated the
Hurricanes and then jumped on a
plane and arrived in the capitol
city last Friday.
Jim Cadle, 6'4" senior from
Newton, Kansas led the Buffalo at
tack with 17 points while Leo Hay
ward chipped in 12 points, all of
which were free throws.
Ekwall and Reimers were high
men for the Cornhuskers with 18
and 16 points respectively while
Ron Parsons and Nannen helped
out with nine and eight points to
Nebraska returns to action on
Saturday night when they journey
to Boulder for a rematch with the
The Cornhuskers' next home
appearance on the Coliseum hard
wood. In the preliminary contest, the
Freshman Reds defeated the
Freshman Whites 76-72.
Jack Johnson with 26 points, Bill
Lundholm with 15 points and Willie
Fitzpatrick were )hps for the Reds
while Herschel Turner, Ron Raver
and Bob Mayo were bests for the
losers with 25,

Although the Big-Seven Basket
ball Tournament in Kansas City
was far from a success for the
Cornhusker hoop squad, they were
able to finish among the leaders
in practically every department.
For the tournament, the Huskers
finished in sixth place with a one
win and two loss record. The win
came at the expense of Missouri
70-65 while the two losses were
suffered at the hands of Michigan
State and Iowa State by the scoros
of 79-65 and 89-69 respectively.
The bis factor in the disappoint
ment of the Husker showing was
at the foul line.
Nebraska opponents scored 95 of
their 233 Doints at the foul line
While the Huskers could only man
age 60 of their 204 points via the
Considering that the team was
outscored by 35 points for the
three games on free throws and
only 29 total points, the Husker
weakness in the tournament can
be clearly shown.
There were many bright spots
on the Huskers record. They out-
scored their opponents in total
field goals 72-69. Their 72 goals
was good for fourtn place, oniy
six behind Kansas U. the leaders.
Their shooting percentage of 36.0
was also good for fourth as
Kansas again led with a 42.6
The 204 total points was only
good for a sixth but only two
teams outscored them by more
than eight points. Michigan State
was the overwhelming leader in
this deDartment with a total of
242 points. Iowa State finished sec
ond with 220.
In total rebounds the Huskers
finished fifth with 118, but this
total was only 11 behind t leader
Kansas. Nebraska opponents
cleared the boards for 120 against
In individual statistics, Nebras
kans finished in the top ten n
both scoring and rebounding. Gary
Reimers finished eighth in total
points with 48. Rex Ekwall had t
total of 41 points which was good
for 14th nlace. In rebounds, Ek
wall tied for eighth with 25. Don
Smidt finished a close 11th with

In a special interview with Ath
letic Director Bill Orwig, the Ne
braskan learned that the rumors
that Elliott was investigating other
job possibilities were true. "We
know that Pet had some feeler
and that he is investigating them,"
said Orwig who was Elliott's back
field coach in the latter's playing
days at Michigan.
"I think that it would be foolish
for him not to investigate them in
the light that it is always a good
idea to look over other job oppor
tunities. On the other hand, we
hope that we will realize that Ne
braska wants him to stay," re
plied the director.
Over the weekend, Elliott was
pranted a pay increase of $2,500
jiving him a total salary of $14,500
per year. This grant came at the
monthly meeting of the Board of
Regents and was unanimously ap
proved. This pay raise came out of the
funds of the athletic department
and not out of the tax funds as
some people think. All salaries
and improvements in that depart
ment come out of the departmental
In an effort to find Elliott, the
Journal called his wife who would
not divulge his whereabouts.
There are 10 major universities
looking for a head football men
tor. The Citadel, Harvard, Boston
University and Iowa State are con
sidered as remote possibilities
while Missouri, Houston, Califor
nia, Southern California, Washing
ton and Indiana. Elliott had been
offered the Missouri job while still
an assistant at Oklahoma.
It was also reported that Bill
Jennings, Nebraska backfield
coach has been offered a similar
position at a Southwest Conference
school. The most likely place
would be Texas where a former
pupil of Jennings, Darrell Royal,
recently took over the head reins.
Orwig said that Jennings had
received a feeler but would not re
veal the institution. Said Orwig,
"Bill Jennings also has received a
feeler, but that is his problem to
work out and I'm sure he'll come
up with the right solution."
The increase in pay meant that
Elliott is now receiving more than
Orwig. When Orwig came to Ne
braska, a university official seated

Nebraska's head football coach
Pete Elliott and his entire staff
last week received raises in their
salaries for the 1957 season.
' Elliott's salary was boosted from
$12,000 thousand to $14,500. The
raise places Elliott's salary as trie
highest on the athletic staff at
the University. It is $1,200 higher
than that received by Athletic Di
rector Bill Orwig.
When Orwig first came to Ne
braska it was believed that his
salary should be higher than the
football coaches. The situation has
just changed in the past few days.
It is believed the 30 year old
football mentor received the sub
stantial boost so that his salary
would favorably ' compare with
those of head coaches of other
major colleges in the Big Seven,
Big Ten, etc.
Elliott now has a three year con
tract at Nebraska. Last year in
his first season with the Huskers
his team finished with a four win
six loss record.
Elliott came to Nebraska after
serving for several years as top
assistant at Oklahoma under Bud
Wilkinson. The Sooner head coach
counted high on Elliott and hat
ed to see him leave.
