Nebraska Thinclads Face Buffaloes
In Indoor-Outdoor Cinder Meet

Staff Sporti Writer
Boulder, Colorado will be the
icene of Nebraska's final indoor
track meet as they pit their cin
der talents against the Colorado
Buffaloes. The Sevigne mentored
thinclad crew will begin their
outdoor season the same day, as
the discus and javelin everts will
be held outdoors in the afternoon,
Court ty Lincoln Star

but the completion of the contests
will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the
Nebraska will be opening its out
door track season after the Colo
rado competition. The Huskers
downed every opponent during the
regular indoor season and in the
Big Seven Indoor Track meet, held
In Kansas City this year, finished
third netting 30H points. That was
great improvement over the 1955-
1956 showing in the same meet
as they finished a dismal last.
Coach Frank Sevigne has mold
ed the Cornhusker crew into a
powerhouse that should be in top
contention for the outdoor crown
throughout the season. The second
year coach at the University has
been especially proud of his Ja
maican Jet, Keith Gardner, who
ran a total of 12 races in indoor
competition this year and was first
to break the tape in everyone of
these events. Although Keith was
the stellar competitor of the Husk
er squad, mentor Sevigne was also
blessed with the cinder talents of
many other fine performers. Oth
ers are Bob Elwood, distance run
ner from Elliott, Iowa;' Knolly
Barnes, Trinidad's contribution to
the Husker 880-yard force; Bill
Hawkins, versatile veteran per
former; Ken Pollard, top-notch
pole vaulter; Bill Marten, stylish
performer from Beatrice, and high
jumpers Goose Gausman and Dale
When Colorado and Nebraska
met during the indoor season, the
Nebraska boys edged the Buffs
by a score of 56-48. They nipped
the Buffs in firsts by 7-5.
Colorado, however has bolstered
their chances of defeating the
Huskers by the addition of the
two outdoor events, the javelin
and discus contests. They boast the
talents of Ken Yob, last year's
Big Seven champion in the jave
lin throw while Jim Blackwell and
Gene Weil show great promise
in the shot-put event. Nebraska's
answers to these two events will
be found in the arm of Dean Britt
enham of Brady and Bill Lafleaur,
of Madison for the Javelin event
as Dick Skold and Al Rosen will
support the Husker's chances in
the discus contest.
The Huskers might salvage a
few more points in the mile relay.
The Buff's squad won the event
during the meeting of the two but
in the Big Seve.i meet the Huskers
nipped the Coloradoans at the tape
as Keith Gardner ran for the quar
tet as the anchor man. Another
thing in favor of the Huskers
is the steady improvement of Knol
ly Barnes in the half-mile run.
Barnes was slighted by Colorado
junior Bob Greenfield in Lincoln
as he set a new meet record of
1:57.3. But in Kansas City Knolly
ran a full three places ahead of
Meet records in the most Jeop
ardy are the 51-3 shot put mark
of Colorado's Wally Tanner in 1951

Buff sophomore heavyweight Jim
Blackwell has thrown as far as

Saturday with a 51-4'4 toss. Ne

Last spring the Alumni squad
surprised the x Varsity footballers
in the annual All-Sports Day clas
sic by winning a 14-0 decision.
The contest was played before
some 5,000 fans in a light drizzle
at Memorial Stadium.
This year the Old Timers are
planning their strategy early. Some
. .'..,-.:,a-cy;.-..;... v. s I
Wagner.. Alum Gridder
26 ex-Huskers have already, an
nounced that they will participate
in the contest slated for the aft
ernoon of April 6.
Tom Novak and Robert (Moon)
Millen willl again coach the squad.
Novak, the All-American center,
will probably handle much of the
linebacking work along with his
coaching chores? Mullen starred
for the Cornhuskers in 1948-51.
Among those already slated for
duty are three players who are
or have recently been on the ros
ter of professional teams. Ed
Husmann, the big tackle from Ogal-
lala, is slated for action at his
old position. Husmann spends his
winters playing ball with the Chi
cago Cardinals. Ed also was a
top notch college wrestler.
Jon Mc Williams, who is back' at
the University, is scheduled for ac
tion at one of the flank positions.
The Sidney lad played in the Cana
dian League in 1956 and had a
very successful rookie season.
Bob Smith, from Grand Island,
is the third professional player on
the early list. Smith started last
season with the Cleveland Browns
and later on was traded to the
Philadelphia Eagles also in the
National Football League.
This collection of ex-greats also
includes five of last year's Husker
team. Max Kitzelman, LaVerne
Torczon, Jack Fleming, Bob Ber
guin and Larry Jones for the nu
cleus of what could be a fine line.
Quarterback Gordie E n g 1 e r t,
from last seasons squad, also is
on hand. The Sioux Falls, South
Dakota lad is being counted on
to share the signal calling.
Rex Fischer, Gerald Ferguson,
and John Bordogna are three oth
er backs slated for duty. Fischer
who was a top halfback in 1955
for Bill Glassford scored one of
the two touchdowns last season.
Bordogna also hit paydirt last
spring with a two yard plunge.
Bordogna will probably run at the
quarterback slot although he can
Ferguson is a top broken field
runner. With him and Smith
at the halfback posts the Alumni
could score from almost any place
on the field.
Big Ted Conner from Hastings
is slated for tackle duty. Dick
Thompson will again see action
at quarterback. Thompson is now
a sporting goods salesman at
North Platte and he also does quite
a bit of officiating.
Bill Taylor, .an ex-assistant
coach, will be at a guard post
along with his old .unning mate
Bob Wagner. These two men were
together much of . the 1955 cam
paign. Dennis Korinek is back for an
other try. The six-man graduate
from Ulysses is another threat
to go all the way. Darrin Sales
trom, Frank Simon, Joe Ponseigo,
Dr. Ardie Means, Ralph Dam
kroger, Rex Hoy, Red Golan, Den
nis Emanuel and Verl Scott are
other linemen slated for work.

Danny Hodge, three time Big
Seven wrestling champion from
Oklahoma will be trying for his
third straight intercollegiate 177
pound title at the -NCAA meet to
be held in Pittsburgh tonight and
He will also be trying to gain
the honor of .being chosen the
meets outstanding wrestler for the
second straight year.
Danny hasn't lost a college
match, winning 41 straight. He has
pinned the last 19 opponents he has
faced and 30 of the 41 he s beaten.
He went to Melbourne for the
Olympics and took the silver medal
for second place. Actually he
should have won being far ahead
of his opponent on points but
Olympic rules state that if at any
time the shoulders touch the mat,
a fall is awarded and Hodge,
manuvering for position allowed
his shoulders to brush the mat.
His second place was the highest
award the U.S. received in wrestl
ing. He also went to the Olympics
in 1952 and advanced to the quar

Off season, Hodge weighs about
191 pounds and has to reduce con
siderably to make weight. His
coach, Port Robertson would
rather have him wrestle at 191 but
Danny insists on going down be
cause he feels that he can wrestle
better at that weight.
Hodge's best praise comes from
Rex Perry, coach of the University
of Pittsburgh team and former
intercollegiate champ who says,
"He's too good for college boys,
he's head and shoulders above
anything we've got."
