for the Huskers with wins in the

times without a defeat. In the 60

meet record of :7.5 and tied, the
stadium record with a dazzling
:7.4. Officials said that his race

i In winning his two hurdle races,
I Gardner beat last years Big Seven
Champion Gene O'Connor. Only
inches separated the two in the
high hurdles which really put the
overflow crowd in an uproar.
Bob Elwood was another Husker
stalwart finishing first in the two
mile and second in the mile. Bob
ran a close race against Tom
Rodda" but lacked enough kick at
the ending, to catch the fleet Kan
Ban. The race appeared to be a
warm up for his next effort; how
ever, as he ran the fastest two
mile of his career and the fastest
a Cornhusker has ever covered
His time was a lightning 9:44.3.
This was also a meet record, the
former mark being 9:47.4. Husker
Lee Carter took second..
Bill Hawkins, Don Phillips and
Chuck Wollaston combined to give
the Huskers a clean sweep in the
broad jump. Hawkins's leap was a
creditable 22'9 while Phillips and
Wollaston jumped 22' and 21'9"
The high jump produced another
complete domination as Dale
Knotek and Larry Gausman tied
for first with jumps of 6'4" and
Bob Lammel took third with a 5'9"
Knolly Barnes ran a beautiful
race to win the 880 yd. run in
J:58.6. He was paced by Bob Nie

twenty yards over Tom Rodda of

Coach Hollie Lepley saw his
pre-match perdiction borne out as
the Husker mermen eked a 44-42
triumph in action against Colorado
A&M at Fort Collins last Friday.
Lepley had predicted the meet
would be extremely close.
It wasn't until the final event,
the 440-yard freestyle, that the
NU tankers bagged their narrow
margin of victory. Charlie Arizumi,
Bill Tagney, Jerry Farrell and Ron
Renfer brought home , the bacon
in that one at a clocking of 3:57.3.
Gene Cotter and Tagney added
another to their long string of wins
in the diving competetion. Cotter
finished first and Tagney second.
Cotter's winning total was 259.35.
It was hoped that Husker Carl
Bodensteiner would capture a
double in the 220 and 440 freestyle
events. But A & M's captain, Lee
Effner broke a five year school
, record with a clocking of 5:29.2.
That was S.3 seconds under the ojd
mark. Bodensteiner's hopes were
further crushed when he finished
3rd in the 220 freestyle. A & M's
Ruddick got first in that event in
2:28.5 and Bodensteiner's team-
Now that all but two teams have been eliminated from the Co-Rec
Volleyball tournament, interest is centered on the finals Tuesday 'at
7:30. Apha Xi Delta-Sigma Chi and Alpha Omicron' Pi-Sigma Phi Epsi
lon will vie for first place honors.
Last Monday in the semi-final round of the tournament, Alpha
Omicron Pi won a 2 point victory over Kappa Kappa Gamma-Beta
Theta Pi. Final score was 31-29. Kappa Alpha Theta-Alpha Tau Omega
lost a 35-26 game to Alpha Omicron Pi-Sigma Phi Epsilon.
Speaking of tournaments, the' WAA is in its second round of tennis
doubles now. Ping pong is just getting underway, as so many are
eompetmg in that tournament. '
Nancy Mehuron of Alpha Omicron Pi led her house. to a 21-2 bas
ketball victory over Pi Beta Phi February 12. The next day, Zeta Tau
Alpha scored 14 points against 6 for Delta Gamma. In a 19-13 game,
Liz Jacobs was high scorer for victorious Kappa Delta No. 2 team, over
Gamma Phi Beta. !
Dance Club in Rehearsals . . . '
One of the most important events on campus next month should
be the Orchesis show. The modern dance club is in rehearsal now for
. a production on March 29 and 30.
"The West in Modern" theme will be carried out in numbers which
Maxwell, Orchesis sponsor, tells me that featured numbers will be
an interpretation of a gold rush, an Indian ceremonial, a house-warming,
and other events typical of the early days of the west.

Willard tossed the iron ball 48'U"
to take first place honors. Ben
Grosse heaved the ball 46'4tt for
second and Husker Clarence Cook
threw the shot 45' for third.
In the. 440, Dave Burton ran

The victory over K. State repre
sents a terrific job on the part of
Coach Frank Sevigne. He has taken
over the Husker track team and
built it into a contender for the
Big Seven Championship to be held
in Kansas City, Friday and Satur
day. He has done this in one year, a
remarkable job for any coach.

Kansas hyhavihs Beat Huskers 87-60
ik'jall Set Afeiv Career Scoring Record
The Nebraska Cornhuskers
stayed with Dick Harp's Jayhawks
for eight minutes and 25 seconds
and then fell apart.
From that moment on the Kan
sans, with a show of power, forged
ahead to an 87-60 victory.
The Bushmen matched the na
tion's number two team basket for
basket throughout the early part
of the first half and it looked as
though the Nebraska quintet might
make a close game of it, but then
the roof fell in.
Kansas led by Wilt Chamberlain
got hot and drove to a 44-27 half
time margin. Many of the Jay
hawk subs saw action in the .sec
ond half with Chamberlain sitting
out the last 10 minutes of play.
It was Don Smldt's sharp shoot
ing that kept the Huskers in con
tention the first eight minutes, but
the Helena, Montana, junior could
not hit a single point in the dreary
Captain Rex Ekwall upped the
Nebraska career scoring record to
828 points as he poured 15 markers
through the hoop to lead the Big
Red scoring. Terry Howard was
the only other Husker to hit dou
ble numbers as he scored two field
goals and six free throws for 10
As usual it was Chamberlain
who led the Kansas attack. Al-
through sitting out half of the sec
ond stanza he managed to pour 30
points through the basket.
Gene Elstun and John Parker
each chipped in 10 points for the
Howard led Nebraska in re
bounding as he gathered nine
nine misses off the boards.
