Frank Sevigno takes hU track
men to Oklahoma this Saturday.
The Huskers will participate in an
All-Sports day quadrangular meet
with the Sooners, Colorado and
' The pre-meet prediction sheet
chows the Huskers have a good
chance to cop second, behind fa
vored Colorado. Arkansas is fig
ured at third and the Sooners
should wind up in the cellar.
Colorado is picked because of
their recent 88 2-13-55 11-8 victory
over the Huskers in an indoor
outdoor triangular meet at Boulder.
The Scarlet and Cream won here
earlier in the season 56-48. Al
though Nebraska finished third
and ahead of the Buffs . at the
Big Seven indoor meet in Kansas
City, it remains to be seen wheth
er the thinclads can accomplish
the feat outdoors.
Again, Nebraska will rely heav
ily on Keith Gardner, the Jamai
can Olympian. At Kansas City the
fleet Gardner was high point
man. He ran the 60-yard dash in
6.3 and came in second in both
the high and low hurdles. Last
Saturday, Gardner piloted him
self to a 48.5 quarter.
The Colorado team should have
more depth than Nebraska. The
Buffs recently set school records
in the 880, the mile and the sprint
medley relay in the gigantic Texas
Relays. Javlin star Ken Yob won
his specialty with a meet record
of 221-1 which stands as the second
best throw in the nation this
spring. He is backed up by Jim
Blackwell, who was fifth in the
6hotput at 51-9 while Jesse Und
lin got a fourth place tie in the
pole vault at 13-0.
Oklahoma, figures to be last on
the basis, of a 71-32& drubbing
at the hands of Nebraska in an in
door dual. The Sooners will offer
little competition although they
will stage an interesting fresh
man pre-meet exhibition. Among
the Okies' frosh material are
sprinter Dee Givens who ran 9.6
last week, Hi Gernert, respon
sible for a 48.6 quarter; and Gail
Hodgson of South Africa who gal
loped a 1:53.5 half mile Monday.

The" Major League baseball season is now less than one week
away from starting time and the lineups are all pretty well set for
openers. This is always a happy time for athletes and fans as the
weather warms up and they can go see their favorites in action.
However, for many rookies it is just another disappointing spring.
They go south with high hopes of sticking in the majors only to get
their pink slip a week or two before belltime.
Usually get another try . . .
Many will be back the next season but for. some it is their, last
try. Men like Dick Stuart, Howie Goss, and Bennie Daniels, who all
tried out with Pittsburgh this spring after a good year with Lincoln
in '56, wil be back after another year or two of seasoning to stick
as stars. ,
Fellows like Lynn Lovenguth may not get another try. Loven
guth was sent down to Omaha by the St. Louis Cardinals. He is a
33-year old, minor league vet who won 24 games for Toronto' in the
International League last year. At this age you don't get many more
tries. The lanky right hander said he didn't get a chance with the
Cardinals pitching only a few innings this spring. It certainly is too
bad that they don't get a better opportunity but with 40 or more men
in camp it is almost impossible to see everyone a lot.
Training Is important ...
This is where constant training is valuable. If a rookie goes to
camp with a big league club or even a minor league team in any
sport he must be in top physical condition. If not in shape, it may take
two or three weeks to get physically fit and then it is cut down date
and back down you go. . '
Managers cannot emphasize conditioning in any sport enough.
Probably 50 percent of a team's success depends on conditioning and
being in the right frame of mind when working out. The case of the
veteran is even more important. When past 30, it is harder to get into
shape once you let yourself go.
The winter banquet trail also hurts many athletes. They over do
it going out night after night for months and then they cant do a
thing but puff in the springtime and try to work off 15 or 20 pounds
of fat. i
Back to Lovenguth . ... '
Lovenguth refused to report to Omaha since he didnt want to
switch from the International League to the American Association.
Lynn pitched for Lincoln a few years back and many people will re
member him as one of the top hurlers they have seen here in
Cannot jump from Triple A... . .. a
Many of these athletes move very fast from Class D ball to AAA
but then cannot make a comparatively small jump to the majors. Many
of these athletes could be mentioned like Lovenguth, Mo MozzaU, and
maybe, Pacific Coast League home run champion, Steve Bilko could be
in this class. Bilko had several chances but couldn't hit. well enough
to stick. Then, he goes back to the PCL, the league next to the
majors, and blasts the cover off of the ball. It is something hard to
explain but just human nature and the fact that there is some taut
to everyones' ability. Maybe even to the great Stuart is limited. Who
