. Just 'as Hitchcock took league
laurels during the regular season
and in the playoffs, they lead in
al 1- state, placing two on
the first team and one on the sec
ond Other houses placing men on
the first team are Bessy, Mac
Clean and Manatt.
Leading the all-stars in ballot
'ng was Duane Buchtel of Manatt
house. Following in order were
Gary Spear, Hitchcock House,
Marshall Cook, Hitchcock, Ernie
English, Bessy, and Don Becker,
Buchtel was. the 1955 Nebraska
Athlete ot the year and a Hiisk
ker football player. Although play
ing for the fourth place Manatter's,
bis playmaking produced many a
close game for his house.
Gary Spear was one of the
standouts on the fine Hitchcock
team which swept league honors.
Gary, a 57" pepperpot guard had
roe of the best outside shots in the
league as well as being its top
hustler His s c o r i ng was also
among the leaders.
Another Hitchcock man, Marsh
all Cook was also one of the key
factors in the House's success.
March was among the taller men
in the league which was all to
H tchcocks advantage as Cook was
the leagues top rebounder and
center. He also found time to
put quite a few points through
tne hoop. ...
Ernie English of Bessy House
earned the fourth position on the
first team by virtue of his excel
lent shooting and top rebounding.
Ernie is a former Husker foot
baller and all-state player from

. This season was an exciting one
in the league asthree teams re
mained in contention up to the
tinal week. Hitchcock led all the
way with Bessey on its
heels. With two games to go,
Bessy tied Hitchcock each hav
ing a 6-2 record but they lost
their chance losing in the next
game to let Hitchcock take the
title. MacLean finished two game's

Must Replace Greenlaw, Brown, Coufal:
Shame Readies Husker Baseballers
For April 5 Opener Against Drake
The Cornhusker baseball squad
will swing into action on April 5,
hosting Drake University. Tony
Sharpe, Nebraska diamond men
tor, is faced with replacing four
of last year's key men.
Gone from the squad are pitch
ers Willie Greenlaw and Dick
Geier, third baseman Don Brown
and shortstop Norm Coufal.
Brown, leading hitter for the
Kuskers last season with a mark
of .446 graduated along with Coufal
who hit .338. Greenlaw, who played
the outfield when not pitching, hit
.311. So, the balance of team power
and overall hitting is lost.
Frank Nappi of football fame,
seems to have cinched the vacant
third base job, while Gil Dunne is
the leading candidate for Coufal's
The top three moundmen thus
far are Charles Ziegenbein, Roger
Bottoroff and Dwight Siebler. Gene
Torczon and Bob Gleason are also
expected to see plenty of hill ac
tion. Sharpe has eight returning let
termen with which to form the
nucleus of his club. They are: Al
Karle, second basemen; John Bet
deck, first baseman;
Gary Reimers, outfielder; Larry
Lewis, outfielder; Jim Kane, catch
er; Don Erway, catcher; Bottorf
A" change in Big Seven schedul
ing calls for a single game on
Friday and doubleheaders on Sat
urday. The first Conference clash
for the Huskers will be on April
12 when they meet Kansas State
here in Lincoln. "
Hacker, Meyer May Help:

AT QedBeUer Pitching
Staff Sports Writer
Cincinnati's success in the Na
tional League in 1957 depends on
how the pitching staff develops for
Manager Birdie Tebbetts. Last
season the squad had everything
but a dependable staff of hurlers
and the problem remained the
same as spring training opened
Hal Jeffcoat and Brooks Law
rence top the list of men back
from last year. Jeffcoat (8-2)
pitched well in the final
weeks of play after starting slowly
last season. He ex-outfielder
hopes to retain this form when
the new campaign gets under
way. Lawrence, a ex-Cardinal,
had a 19-10 record last season.
The first 13 victories were won
before the big guy lost.
Tebbetts will select two or three
more starters from Tom Acker,
Art Fowler, Don Gross, Joe Nux
before the big guy suffered a loss,
hall, Warren Hacket and R u s s
Meyer. Acker had an impressive
2.38 ERA with the Reds last year.
Eeing only .in his second big
league season, Acker might im
prove his 4-3 record considerably.
Gross is up from Havana where
fie posted a 1.67 ERA. The crafty
southpaw also won three straight
for Cincinnati in late season with
Nuxhall, another of the squads
ix lefthanders, won 13 and lost
11 last season. He was hot at
times and then would turn cold.
Hacker and Meyer are ex-Chi
cago Cubs. Hacker- was acquired
after the 1956 season was over.
His 3-13 mark with the lowly Cubs
doesn't look too good but Hacker
had a operation during the winter
on a foot and his work could im
prove. Hersh Freeman will again head
the Redleg bullpen staff. Freeman
threw his weight around very
well last season in posting a 14-5
Also trying to make the staff
are Pat Scantlebury, Jerry Da
vis, John Brechin, Charley Rabe,
.end John Oldham. .
This is the make or break de
partment for Cincinnati It will be
i case of Cincinnati moving, just
as the hurlers perform. Good per
formances might mean a pennant.
It looks like the Reds nay need
more hurling than tfcey have now
in order to become champs. Third
place is a more likely finishing
The catching department is well
fortified. Ed Bailey and Smokey
Burgess will do most of the work.
Should Burgess be traded off for
a pitcher, youngster. Don Pavle
tich could probably move into the
No. 2 position.
The infield is also set with the
exception of third base. Ted Klus
zewski will be back at first base.
Unless he has more hip trouble,
Kluszewski should be ready for an
other good year. He hit .302 last
Once again Johnny Temple and
Roy McMillan will form perhaps
the best keystone combination in
the senior circuit or in all base
ball. They missed a combined
total of four games last season.
Both are All-Star performers.
Don Hoak or Alex Grammas
will play third. Grammas was sta
tioned at the hot corner the final
months of last jeason . and was
good defensively, but is a weak
hitter. Hoak, also acquired from
Chicago, may win the job He hit
only .215 last season although ca
pable of doing much better
Rocky 'Bridges, George Crowe
end bonus baby Bobby Henrich
will provide utility strength
Power will again be the No. 1
feature in the outfield. Gus Bell,
Wally Post, and Frank Robinson
will probably be the staners This
trio socked 103 homers last year.
Bob Thurman, Pete Whisenant,
Jerry Lynch and Art Schult are
bidding for the remaining positions.

'"What's it like to be
A PHYSICIST AT IBM?"
Fiva years ago, college senior Nick Himmtr asked himself this question.
Today, as Administrative Assistant to the Quality Control manager, Nick
reviews his experience at IBM and gives soma pointers that may bo helpful
to you in taking the first, most important step in your career a a physieUi.
"I was tremendously impressed;" says
Nick, "by my first plant tour. When
' you go throughvthe facilities meet
the men and get an idea of the prob
lems they handle you can't help but
become interested. Add the friendly,
informal work atmosphere, and you
know right off the bat these people
have a story to tell."
Nick came to IBM in 1951 with a
B.S. in physics. He started as a Tech
nical Engineer in Test Equipment
Engineeriifg working on an analog
bombing system. When that project
moved from the Endicott to the
Poughkeepsie plant, Nick followed it,
becoming first an Associate Engineer,
then a Project Engineer. As the lat-
tion of alloys ... or of the properties
of metals, such as the resistivity of
germanium. Then, there are the im
portant 'analysis of failure' and
reliability studies, in which you seek
to determine, for example, the 'life

Heading up Quality EnginMring
ter, he worked on IBM's first transis
torized electronic computer the 608.
By November, '55, Nick was head
ing up Quality Engineering in the
Quality Control Division of the
Poughkeepsie plant. Recently pro
moted to Administrative Assistant to
the Quality Control manager, Mick
now concerns himself with the funda
mental operations and policies of this
450-man division. Quality Control is
responsible for the performance of
IBM's vast array of business ma
chinesfrom simple sorters and
punches to the "electronic brains."
What an IBM physicist does
"The problems of Quality Contro
in this business are endless," 'Nick
reports, "and fascinating to the phys
icist. There's process control of the
manufacture of components such as
transistors and cores ... of the con
tents of a gas . . . of the concentricity
of an etch solution ... of the diffrac-

expectancy' of a device, the mean
time between failures, or perhaps
which step in a process has the great
est effect on the equipment involved.
You may be asked to control the
deposit of glass on X-ray tubes "to
avoid spillover, or microscopic spot
ting. Or you may be dealing with
arc-suppression, or gaseous electron
ics, the grass roots of instrumentation ;
or in the estimation of tolerances, or
tration and concentricity of colloidal
solutions?" "Present a job in terms
of actual problems," believes Nick,
"and you'll get the man's interest
for it's his career and his future that
have top priority."
How about further study?
Nick has taken full advantage of
IBM's extensive educational facilities!
to get ahead at IBM. He took at least
one course each semester on subjects
within his immediate' work area
courses on digital and analog com
puters and on their components such
as cores and transistors. He found
time to take management courses at
well. "If you want opportunity for
study," Nick says, "IBM will providi
all you want."

in correlation coefficients that is,
in physically sound numbers."
Nick has been instrumental in
encouraging many college physics
majors to come to IBM. "I find
they're interested in questions like
these," he says: "How would you go
about determining the 'life' of elec
trons in transition from the valence
to the conduction band?" Or, in the
manufacture of magnetic inks, "How
can the grain size of the iron content
be controlled ... or its viscosity regu
lated over wide temperature ranges?
How would you control the concen-
Promotion almaet inevitable
Asked about opportunities for ad
vancement at IBM, Nick says, "The
situation could hardly be better in
that respect. With sales doubling:
every five years on the average, pro
motion is almost inevitable."
IBM hopes that this message will help to
give you some idea of what it's like to be
a physicist at IBM. There are equal op
portunities for E.E.'s, MJS.'s, mathema
ticians and Liberal Arts majors in IBM's
many divisions Research, Manufactur
ing Engineering, Sales and Technical
Services. Why not drop in and discuss
IBM with your Placement Director? He
can supply our latest brochure and tell
you when IBM will next interview on
your campus. Meanwhile, our Manager
