Fourth Place Finish:
Ekwall Shines In Cage Finale;
Bushmen Top Cyclones 67-58

The Jerry Bush quintet shackled
the Iowa State Cyclones last Sat
urday night to openly flout their
national basketball rating of num
ber fourteen in the nation and

And so it was that the 1956-57
Cornhusker cage crew closed their
regular playing season with a
67-58 win over Iowa State. Led
by Rex "The Horse" Ekwall who
finished his collegiate basketball
seasons by scoring 19 points, high
for both teams, the Huskeis

Bo Sox To Keep Fourth Spot;
Parnell, Nixon Question Marks
By BOB WIRZ
Staff Sports Writer
The best outfield in the Ameri
can League and a fair pitching
staff look like the Boston Red
Sox high spots in their bid for a
first division finish in 1957.
Manager Mike Higgins and his
squad finished just two games
ahead of fifth place Detroit last
season and will probably end up
in the same place this year.
An outfield of Ted Williams,
Jimmy Piersal, and Jackie Jen
sen is all that any skipper could
ask for. Last year they got a
combined total of nearly 500 hits
and drove in nearly 270 runs plus
being above average on defense.
While Williams won't play in all
the games Giggins has quite ade
quate replacements in men like
Gene Stephens, Dick Gernert, Faye
Throneberry, Tommy Umphlett,
and rookie Marty Keough.
The pitching staff has three good
Etarters and some other good pros
pects. Tom Brewer 19-9 last year,
Frank Sullivan 14-7, and Ike De
lock 13-7 are the regulars. Delock
was the surprise of last season.
They are backed up by Dave
Sisler, George Susce, Tom Hurd,
Willard Nixon, Mel Parnell and
Bob Porterfield. The latter three
all had their troubles last year.
The Red Sox infield is the big
problem for Sox brass. Only at
first is anything at all clear.

non will probably no aeainst the

When Thompson potted a two
pointer with almost 11 minutes
remaining that brought the I.S.C
cage club within a two point differ

contest were the cheers of N the
Nebraska fans the faintest but
the Cornhuskers were not to be
denied their final victory for the
game captain and for Bush. -
On to victory they went and in
fine style. Arwood hit three con

Sooners Dominate Meet:
OU Wins Swim Title;
Huskers finish Fourth
By STAN WIDMAN
Staff Sporti Writer
The Oklahoma' Sooners swam to
one of the most convincing victor
ies ever recorded in a Big Seven
Swim Meet as they won 14 of 16
events and piled up 161 points for
the three day tournament held at
Norman. Iowa State finished sec-
onw with 80 points, Colorado third
with 52, Nebraska, fourth, with 49
tied for fifth with 27 points each.
Dick Thatcher was outstanding
for the Sooners winning three
events. His victories were in the
100 and 200 yard butterfly and
the 200 yard individual medley.
Jeff Farrell and Mel Van Helsdin
gen of Oklahoma both came
through with doubles. Farrell won
the 220 and 100 yard freestyles
while Van Heldingen posted his
victories in the 100 and 200 yard
backstroke. Farrell participated in
the winning 400-yard freestyle
relay also while Van Helsdingen
was on the winning 440 yard med
ley relay team.
Another outstanding Sooner was
Julian Dyason who won the 200
yard breaststroke, was on the win
ning 440 yard medley relay team
and finished second in the 100 yard
breaststroke. Dyason staged a hot
dual with Ron Mlnarik of Iowa
State in both breaststroke events.
Dyason set a new Big Seven re-

as candidates. Don Buddin, who
had the job last year is in the
Klaus, Lepcio and Consolo also
will bid at the hot corner. It looks
like Klaus and Malzone could get
these last two jobs.
Catching also presents a prob
lem to Higgins. Sammy White
hasn't been too strong the last
two years and may lose his job.
He hit only .245 last season and
batted in just 44 runs. Pete Daley
(.267) and Haywood Sullivan may
get the nod. Sullivan has been im
pressing. the skipper in early work

After that the Bushmen had only
to wait for the final gun and their
sweet taste of victory to avenge
the earlier shellacking suffered at
the hands of the same team which
they humbled last Saturday.
If anyone of the Husker quintet
were to be singled out as the
outstanding player of the game
it would have to be Ekwall with
his 19 points and his usual out
standing floor play. Next in line
for point totals were Reimers with
17, Smidt who aided with 13 and
Nannen who contributed 10 points
to the win. High for Iowa State
was Crawford who potted 17 points.

day by speeding the 200 yard dis
tance in 2:30.9.
Bob Leonardt, also of Oklahoma,
took part in two wins, coming in
first in the 50 yard freestyle and
taking part in the 400 yard free
style relay race. He also took a
second in the 100 yard freestyle.

Wossmuth won the one meter
diving. Mlnarik also finished sec
ond in the 200 yard breaststroke
while Wossmuth added to the
Cyclone total with a third in the
high board diving.
Top men for the Cornhuskers
were as usual Bill Tagney and
Gene Cotter, the diving duo.
Tagney finished a close second to
Wossmuth in the one meter diving,
349.50 to 345.85. Cotter finished
fourth in the event.
The tables turned on the high
board however as Cottner came in
second to Oklahoma's Jim Griff is,
375 to 357. Tagney finished fifth.
Jerry Farrell enjoyed a pretty
productive meet as he took a third
in the 100 yard butterfly and a
fifth in the 200 yard individual
medley. Carl , Bodensteiner and
Bill North both gave the Huskers
points as they finished fourth and
fifth respectively in the 1500 meter
Other Huskers who got into the
scoring act were Charlie Arizumi,
fourth in the 100 yard backstroke,
Fritz Helmsdoerfer, sixth in the
200 yard butterfly, Ron Renfer
fourth in the 50 yard freestyle,
Paul Schoor, sixth in the 200 yard
backstroke and John Holeman,
sixth in the 200 yard individual
