Pete Elliott confirmed yester
day that he is considering offers
of a Job elsewhere for next sea
on. Elliott, who completed his fresh
man year as a head coach with
won-lost record, has report-
Being Contacted:
O An n n
edly been offered $17,000 to be
come head football coach at the
University of Washington.
George Briggs, athletic director
of Washington University, said
Tuesday, "I will not confirm or
deny any thing about our coach
ing position. I am not at liberty
to make a statement."

Briggs, however, also stated that
Elliott was one of the men being
considered for the head coaching
Washington's coaching vacancy
was created when Darrell Royal
resigned to accept the head coach
ing position at the University of
Texas. Royal had played and la
ter coached for Bud Wilkinson at
Oklahoma before taking the Wash
ington Job.
Briggs said his school was look
ing for a coach in Roval's mold;
"a young coach, one schooled in
the split T, preferably a Wilkinson
man." Elliott fills these require
ments periectiy.
Dee Andfos, Elliott's line coach
and one of his closest friends said
in an interview with Bill irinir
KLIN newscaster, during the half
of the Colorado-Nebraska basket
ball game Monday night that a
head coach should keen him.ulf

Andros also stated that the inter
views did not necessarily mean

JENNINGS ling, he said that there was still
a challenge to meet and fab
to do at Nebraska." He marf it
clear, however, that a coach should
take advantage of chances to move
Elliott, contacted in St. Louis
where he is attending a coaching
conference, had little to say other
than he did plan interviews in
St. Louis.
He did not rule out the possibil
ity that he is interested in more
than one school. There was
strong possibility that the Univer
sity of California was also in
volved and there are seven other
major colleges and universities
hunting for head coaches.
Bill Jennings, Husker backfield
coach has also been contacted for
a coaching position. Jennings' job
would be an assistantship compar
able to the one he presently holds.
A Southwest Conference school,
possibly Texas, is said to have
contacted Jennings, who, like El
liott, has just comDleted his first
year at Nebraska.
Elliott's decision aoDarentlv will
not be determined primarily bv
salary. The University Board of
Kegents, aware of the Job offer
since before the Christmas holi-
days, boosted Elliott's salary to
$14,500 and upped his assistant's
salaries by $500 apiece.
They felt by splitting the differ
ence between Pete's original sal
ary at Nebraska and the $17,000
offer, Elliott's decision would be
made on a basis of his coaching
The attitude of the Board at pres
ent appears to be one of wait and
see. It was learned that the Board
felt it had done everything possible
on Elliott's salary and that no at
tempt would be made to further
increase it to match any other

A Campus-to-Career Case History
Grapplers Open Season:
U 9'
Staff Sports Writer
Vacation is over for coach Don
Strasheim's wrestling team. The
grapplers open their 1957 season
thia week with two appearances
in Minnesota.
Tomorrow night they make their
debut against Mankato State
Teachers College at Mankato and
Friday night travel over to Min
neapolis to tangle with the Univer
sity of Minnesota.
Last year the Nebraska squad
was defeated by both Mankato and
Minnesota by large margins. This
year it should be a different story
according to Strasheim. The young
head coach, who doubles as as
istant football coach under Pete
Elliott, feels that his squad will
be much improved over the 1956

Nebraska's very able Director of Athletics. Bill Orwitr. has thia tn
say on the subject. "I don't think an athletic director should receive a
larger salary than the football coach because a coach has much more
pressure applied to him than an athletic director."
There was an inference in Jensen's editorial that the salaries of
tne protessors would be closer in line with those of the athletic staff.

The salaries of the members of the athletic department are paid out
oi me earnings oi tne aepartment. as long as teams can draw upwards
of 35,000 people at an average of $3.00 a ticket, the athletic forces will
have more money for salaries than the academic departments.
Also, there are very few instructors that must subject their teach
ings to such a critical group so often. Although the salaries of most
cuiiee prmessurs are mosc inadequate, mat aoes not mean mat tne
aalariees of the football staff should be lowered to provide equality.

Frank R. Hoffman, B.S. in Liberal Arts, Hampden-Sydney College, 'S3
Meet an Assistant Manager-Hampden-Sydney, '53
Frank Hoffman is Assistant Manager
of the telephone office at Newport News,
Va. Frank's office has about 25,000 ac
counts, and handles $360,000 worth of
business a month.
He joined the telephone company in
1953, only three years ago.
"My wife worked there first," says
Frank, "while I was still in college. What
she told me, along with what I learned
from friends in the business, pretty well
sold me on the telephone company as a
place to find a career. And the interview
clinched it. The job opportunities were
too good to refuse.
"I began in the Commercial Depart
ment, which takes care of business con
tacts with customers. The training was
continuous and excellent. One of the most
rewarding jobs I had was working on
revenue studies involving estimates of
population and telephone growth. Thia
experience is really useful in my present
position as Assistant Manager.
"I supervise the personnel who handle
customer contacts. And I assist in the
handling of our public relations work in
the community. In the Manager' ab
sence, I take over.
"It's a great job, full of opportunities
and satisfaction. I like working with
people, and I like to see my work con
tributing to the betterment of the com
munity and the company. Choosing a
career in the telephone business was the
best move I've ever made."
Frank Hoffman chose a career with The Chesapeake
& Potomac Telephone Company of Virginia. Inter
esting career opportunities exist in other Bell Tele
phone Companies, Bell Telephone Laboratories,
Western Electric and Sandia Corporation. Your place
ment officer has more information about them.
