Six Rookies To Start:
Tony Readies Crew For
Reports Baseball Team
Baseball Coach Sharp Tony an
nounced last night that six rookies
will be in the starting lineup this
afternoon as the University of
Nebraska open their campaign
against Drake U. on the Husker
The rookies will form the best
looking infield and battery that
Nebraska has seen in years. All
are beautiful prospects and the
squad is shaping up as the con
ference's No. 1 team of the year.
The main reason for Sharp
Tony's enthusiasm is a young
pitcher from Monoco. The good
looking sophomore Grace Keily
came to Nebraska after being
highly recommended as a curve
ball artist and model. No doubt
everyone has heard the cry "throw
him the old Kim Novake ball," the
one with all the curves, well this
is Grace's most used pitch. She
also has an excellent fast ball
which she contributes to excellent
form on the mound and every
where also for that matter.
Grace is supposed to arrive in
time to continue to work out for
the rest of the week with Coach
Tony's boys. It is rumored that the
signing of the new star has done
much for the moral of the ball

everyone raving about her talent.
She has received a lot of publicity
in the past few months.
The strong arm of the infield
is the rookie Stretch Eckbury from
the Virgin Islands. Stretch is
pegged to start at first base. She is
a bundle of fire. Not only does her
height and form help in pulling

This event was held in front of

it also helps her batting average.
Miss Eckbury is a 6'8", 28-20-26
it helps her batting which was a
rosy .500 last winter when she
played for the Boston Pink Pants
in the Snowb.aU League.
Miss Eckbury atributes part
of her success to her fellow team
mate the former Mrs. J. DiMaggio
who has been doing an excellent
job at the "hot Corner". Miss Mul
rose has a fine throwing arm,
which she is always throwing
around someone. Marlyn has been
having a little trouble fielding
grounders which Sharp Tony atri

last winter while playing in the

very very close play.
