Sports enthusiasts got a real
shot in the arm Sunday when the
Fellowship of Christian Athletes
visited the Nebraska campus.
Among the big names visiting
the University were Bob Feller,
Carl Erskine, George Kell, Clen
don Thomas, Billy Knisher and
Jimmy Joe Robinson.
These gentleman toured the re
ligious houses on campus 1 a s
night and also appeared before
tne "N" club, where they spoke
to the Cornhusker athletes.
They talked of the association
between athletics and Christianity
and how they are making use ot
these aims to combat juvenile de
linquency. Don McClennon, former Eastern
Oklahoma Aggie basketball coach
and founder of the group, told a
fathering at the Lutheran Student
House that J. Edgar Hoover, FBI
chief, sttributes the bulk of juve
nile delinquency to the lack of
Back Coach On Inside:
spiritual training in the home and
that 60 of the nations youth had
never been in a church.
McClennon stated that industry
had been using athletes very suc
cessfully as endorsers of various
items such as razor blades and
group hoped to reveal, primarily
cigarettes and that by making
use of this hero worship theory
and linking it with religion, the

portance of spiritual happiness in
It was not all religious talk,
however, as the athletes told of
various experiences during their
Kell, comparing Ted Williams,
Stan Musial and Joe DiMaggio,
rated Williams as the best hitter.
He called Musial a better fielder
and base runner but claimed that
the Splendid Splinter held the edge
at the plate. DiMaggio was termed
the better of the three and one

liott should suddenly change his
mind, then the graying former aid
to Bud Wilkinson might still
leave. But with the announcement
uthat Elliott will leave about to
break it appears doubtful that
Jennings will go.
Jennings played with the 1939-
1941 Oklahoma teams as an end.
He still holds the pass-catching
record for the University of Okla
homa. The problem of selecting a staff
will confront university officials
immediately after Elliott's replacement.

The Cornhusker Swim Sauad
won its second straight swim meet
at the expense of Kansas State,
56-25, in the Coliseum pool. In
amassing their 56 points total,
the Nebraska tankmen took first
place in all but two events.

first places, one in the 50 yard free
style and the other in the 100 yard
fritz Heimdoerler also Had a
part in two of the Husker firsts as
he won the 200 yard butterfly and
was on the first place 400 yard free
style relay team. A pleasant sur
prise for the Huskers has been
the diving of Bill Tagney. He has
beaten Big Seven diving champion
Gene Cotter two straignt times
and will probably be giving Cotter
a run lor his money in every
match. It's quite possible that these
men are the two best divers in the

second in the Big Seven tourna

of the team's' chances against the
Staters basing them on the fact
that Iowa State lost eight of their
ten best swimmers through gradu
A terrific diving battle should
take place as the Cyclones have
two outstanding divers to match
Cotter and Tagney. Outstanding for
the Cyclones should be Mlarnik in

The Baltimore Oriole third base
man who holds a lifetime batting
average of .312 told the gathering
that he did not intend to remain
in baseball after his playing days
Feller, who recently retired from
the game after pitching for Cleve
land for 20te years, called the left
field fence in Boston's Fenway
Park "The green monster." The
Van Meter, Iowa fireballer claimed
that every time a right handed
pitcher threw sidearm at the Red
Sox ball park, his hand would
scrape the wall. He called the no
hit, no run ball game he pitched
in 1946 against the New York
Yankees, his greatest thrill.
Erskine, who pitched a no hitter
against the New York Giants this
past season, picked the Dodgers
to repeat in the National League
this season. The veteran right haiyf
er called both Milwaukee and Cln
cinnati definite threats and in
stalled the St. Louis Cardinals as
a possible dark .horse cIud.
Robinson, former halfback at
Pittsburgh and the first draft
choice of the Cleveland Browns in
1949, could not understand why
the Bobby Layne-Ed Meadows in
cident received so much publicity.
He called this rough type of play
an everyday occurence in the Na
tional Football League.
Oil wells and yachts were the
topics of conversation for Thom
as and Krisher. These All Big-Seven
Sooners claimed that . all the
oil in the world could not lure
Bud Wilkinson from Norman.
The fellowship was horied in
Lincoln by Dr. Rex Knowles of
the Student Presbyterian House.
A Campus-to-Career Case History
Claire Hruska (left) discusset progrest of a new telephone building with tht contractor.
What's a civil engineer's job
in the telephone company?
Claire Hruska graduated in 1953 from
the University of Washington with a B.S.
in Civil Engineering. Today he's with
The Pacific Telephone and Telegraph
I supervise construction at every
stage," Claire says. "Every telephone
building is designed around the equip
ment that will be in it. When a building
is needed, I work closely with the archi
tect to make sure his plans fit the needs.
Then I check the contractors' bids. When
the contract is let, it's my responsibility
to see that the builder sticks to the plans
"Right now I'm handling the construc
tion of several telephone exchanges, a
large office building in downtown Seattle,
and additions to other buildings. It's
satisfying work, because I'm on my own a
lot, and getting the jobs done is up to me.
"I've got a career .that offers big as
signments and responsibilities, and real
opportunities to get ahead in a business
that's growing rapidly. That's what I
was looking for."
Claire llruska is typical of the many young men
who are finding rewarding careers in the Bell Tele
phone System. For more information on career
opportunities in the Bell Telephone Companies,
Bell Telephone Laboratories, Western Electric and
