Jennings Opens Spring Football;
Huskers Prepare For All-Sports Day
By BOB MARTEL
Pigskins filled the air yesterday
afternoon as Bill Jennings put his
charges through their first session
of spring practice.
The Husker mentor's big prog-
lem will be filling the middle of the
line vacated by Jim Murphy, Bob
Berguin and LaVerne Torczon.

Jennings has lettermen available
at all positions with the exception
of left halfback. Five sophomores
will be battling for that position.
They include: Carroll Zaruba,
Don Patton, Jerry Schroeder, Dale
Siefkes, Doug Watkins and Roger

seem to have the early inside
track. George Harshman, Roy Stin

second unit fullback, and Jim

squad, are the leading candidates.
George Cifra has returned to
school to help bolster the fullback
spot. This position seems to be
the strongest on the squad. With

spring drills because of an injury,

Yankees Picked To Win
As Spring Practice Opens

Who can stop the New York
This seems to be the big prob
lem again in 1957 in the American
League. Casey Stengel and his big
bombers are now in St. Peters
burg, Florida, in spring training
and the entire squad is in the
fold. Don (perfect-game) Larsen
igned his contract and thus be
came the last Yankee to do so.
Stengel seems well set at this
early stage, in the game for the

upcoming season. Every position
seems taken except third base and
left field. Last spring it was short
stop and Gil McDougald filled
that position very well.
Andy Carey is again the lead
ing candidate for the third base
job. Carey must improve at bat
or surrender his position to an
other hopeful. Stengel indicated
earlier this year that first base
man Bill Skowran may get a trial
at third. Another possibility is
Billy Martin if young Bobby Rich
ardson improves at second.
The leftfield job could go to any
number of mem Top candidates
are Norm Siebern, Tony Kubek,
Bob Martyn, Enos Slaughter and
others. Siebern, spent about half
of last year with the Yanks but
didn't produce to well. Kubek and
Martyn played at Denver last
season and are presently in the
Yankee rookie school in St. Pete.
Slaughter returned to New York
from Kansas City in the final
months of the season and was a
great asset in the pennant .firive
and in the World Series. The old
war horse stands a good chance
of starting this campaign in the
Others expected to start the
coming campaign are Yogi Berra,
behind the plate; Skowron on

base; Martin, second base; Mc
Dougald, shortstop; Mickie Man

old head in the lineup.
On the hill Casey has all of last
year's stars back plus two he
picked up from KC in the big
player trade of two weeks ago.
Southpaw Whitey Ford tops the
list of candidates. He is followed
by righthanders Larsen, Bob Tur
ley, Tom Sturdivent, Bob Grim,
Johnny Kucks, and Art Dittmar.
Dittmar was the key to the Feb
ruary trade and figures to become
one of Stengel's regular hurlers.
He posted a 12-22 record with low
ly KC last season. Bobby Shantz
also was acquired in that deal.
Shantz will probably spend most
of his time in the bullpen and
probably will be a spot starter.
The Yankee bench will also be
strong as usual. Joe Collins, Jerry
Coleman, and the versatile Elston
Howard top the list of reserves.
The Yankees also hope to come
up with a top rookie or two from
their early school. This school has
produced such men in the past
as Grim and .Kucks.
Some of the kids who could come
through are Kubek, Martyn, Marv
Throneberry, Al Cicotte or one of
the lesser kr.owns. Throneberry is
a first baseman and Cicotte a
right handed pitcher. j
But whether, any stars develop
or not- it looks like it will be the

These men have staged a close

Another Lepley hope should be
Carl Bodensteiner who is a top
free syler in the 220 and 440 yard
distances. Carl has scored consist
ently against Big Seven foes and
Charlie Arizumi and Fritz Helms-
doerfer are two more tankmen
who have scored consistently this
year. Arizumi 's event is tne 200
yard backstroke and Helmsdoerf
er's the 200 yard breaststroke and
200 yard butterfly.
Jerry Farrell and Ron Renter
should provide the spark for NU
in the 50 and 100 yard freestyles
along with Tagney who has done
quite well in these events. Other
expected to see action are Doug
Schoor and Jim Pokorny.
Coach Don Strashime of the

an improvement over last years
tail end finish. His prayers will
rest with Gil Nielson 123 lbs, Ken
McKee 130 lbs, Gail Baum 137,

some needed points.
