NU Harriers Prep
Travel To (-State
By JIM COURTNEY
Staff Sports Writer
The Husker Harriers almost
traveled to the wrong place this
weekend as there was an error
In the spring schedule.
Head coach Frank Sevigne was
led to believe that their was a
track meet with the Iowa State
Cyclones but a phone call from
Kansas State shattered this week
end's plans for a trip to Iowa.
The phone call set straight the
fact that Nebraska was to meet
Kansas State this Saturday and
the Huskers were to invade Ames,
Iowa for the contest with Iowa
State this next Tuesday.
With eveeything now arranged,
Sevigne has been readying his
cindermen for the upcoming con
test with the Wildcats of Kansas
State. Goose Gausman is back aft
er a short vacation from the squad
for disregarding curfew when the
Nebraska crew was in Colorado
last month. The addition of Gaus
man once again could and should,
prove an additional boost to the
Husker scoring punch as the high
To Wildcats .
By 8-4 Score
The Kansas State Wildcats
downed the Nebraska linksters 8-4
Wednesday afternoon at Hillside
Country Club here in Lincoln.
John Butterfield was the outstand
ing golfer on the links as he fired
a two-under par 70.
The K-Staters had enough team
balance to win all the other
Ron Young (KS), 75, defeated
Mike McCuistion 77, 2'2 to k.
Dave Fluetze (KS), 75, defeated
Warren Christenson, 78, 3-0.

Jerry Moore 77, 2 xk to
John Butterfield (N), 70, de

jumper has been jumping around
the 6 feet 4 inch level. A jump of
that distance this Saturday should
earn Gausman at least a second
or third place ribbon. Dale Kno
tek, Nebraska representative in the
Kansas and Drake Relays has
been consistent this year with his
6-4 jumps. A jump of that ceiling
earned Dale a third, place position
behind Wilt Chamberlain of Kan
sas and Don Stewart of Southern
Methodist who won second and first
respectively. Knotek did not earn
a place in the Drake Relays.
Ken Pollard is back in the vault
ing pit after a short stint for
Sevigne with a relay crew for the
Drake events. Another thinclad
that will be seeing plenty of action
this weekend and Tuesday will be
the Jamaican Jet, Keith Gardner.
The lad from Jamaica who sped
to numerous firsts for the Indoor
squad and was high point getter
at the Big Seven indoor meet this
year will be featured in the
sprints for Saturday.
There are also the other mem
bers of the thinclad crew who
have placed with regularity this
season and will be seeing action
this Saturday. Some of these are
Knolly Barnes, Bob Elwood, Bill
Hawkins, Bill Marten, Dick Jahr,
Al Rosen and Chuck Wollaston.
Last year when the Huskers met
the Wildcats in a dual meet the
Nebraska crew fell to a 71-59
defeat. This year in the indoor
competition, however, the Husk
ers blistered the Kansas State
squad with a 62-42 victory.
The Huskers are rather weak in
depth in shot put and javelin
events but that should, not be
enough to hinder their chances of
winning this Saturday.
The Lithuanians and Latvians
defeated Gus I for the Indepen
d e n t Intramural Volleyball
;!iampionsliip. The scores were
10-15, 17-15 and 15-10. Manager
for the winners is Paul Kunzins.
The games were played on
April 11 but due to a protest,
the results were delayed until
Southern Tradition , . .
Tomorrow, the country's best three year olds will parade to the
post in the 83rd running of the Kentucky Derby.
Down through the years, this event has continued to be one of the
top thrills of the sporting world. This is the race that horse owners
dream about. This is the race that the country's top trainers work for.
This is the race which tells whether the horse has endurance, guts and
a true racing heart or is just an also ran among the greats. This is
the race which stamps the winner of it a colossus among thorough
breds whether it ever wins again or not.
What is it about the Derby that holds so much excitement? Other
races have more money offered, although not much, and many of
these same horses have raced against each other before and will race
against each other later. The answer to this question must lie in
tradition. In past years, horses that have won this race went on to
more fame and immortality. Yet even in the Derby, the longshot has
nipped the favorite to gain the winner's circle. Exterminator, a 30-1
shot in 1918 and Dark Star, who handed Native Dancer the only loss
of its career in 1954 are two of the most notable.
This year's field appears to this writer the best that has come
upon the Derby scene in quite a number of years. Wheatley Stables'
Bold Ruler, Calumet's twin entry of General Duke and Iron Liege,
Ralph Lowe's Gallant Man, Travis Kerr's Round Table and Federal
Hill all appear to be able to go the distance. But as has been seen
in the past, any horse entered in the mile -and a fourth classic is
liable to come away with the $125,000 first prize.
This writer's choice? BOLD RULER.
"Sugar" Ray On Top ...
"Old boxers never die, they just try for comebacks." This can
certainly be true of Sugar Ray Robinson who captured the middle
weight title for an unprecedented fourth time Wednesday. He knocked
out rugged Gene Fullmer In the fifth round of their scheduled fifteen
rounder. A solid left hook did the job. It only goes to prove the
adage that determination will in the long run pay off be it sports,
school work or succeeding in life.
Cops Only Win
The Kansas State netters spanked
the University of Nebraska netmen
6-1 yesterday as Bill North gar
nered the only win of the after
noon for the Huskers.
North lost his first match 6-4 but
came back to win his next two
sets 6-4 and 7-5. Bill also played
a doubles match with Art Weaver
but they failed the bid and were
defeated 7-5 and 6-2.
The Huskers seemed to have an
off day all the way around as the
rest of the men lost the rest of
their matches. Art Weaver was
defeated 6-4 in his first match but
in his second match he evened the
score by downing his opponent 11-9.
The effort was in vain, however,
as he went down in the third match
with another 6-4 loss.
Tom Stitt lost to his opponent as
did George Fisk, Charles Kress,
Art Weaver and the doubles team
of Weaver and North. Nebraska's
only point came from North' win.

University Student Nife
Set For Sherman Field
Saturday night will be University
night at Sherman Field home of
the Western League Lincoln Chiefs
Each spring the Chiefs reserve
two nights which are designated
especially for University of Ne
braska students. Saturday night
May 4th is one of these times
with the Des Moines Bruins as the
visiting team. On Saturday eve
ning a University student needs
only his ID card and 35 cents for
admission to the ball game.
Lincoln won the pennant last
season and they are fielding an
other strong team in 1957. The
Pittsburgh affiliates are especial
ly strong on the hill and have ade
quate batting strength.
General Manager Dick Wagner
wants everyone possible to attend
these games and see the Chiefs
in action. They play good base
ball and you cannot find better
entertainment for the price any
where, he said.
This will be the third meeting of
the season between the Chiefs and
Des Moines. They met twice the
past week and split a two game
series. Jim Duffalo the early
season Lincoln ace, will probably
be on the hill and everything makes
it appear that the game should be
a good one.
Remember that is at 8:00 Satur
day evening May 4, at Sherman
Field. The location of Sherman
Field is at 2nd, and South Street.

Husker Baseballers Idle;
Nappi Set At Third Base
Now that the baseball season has
passed the halfway mark for the
University of Nebraska's Corn
huskers, it appears that the Husk
ers are able to give any team a
"battle" as long as they can control
their error doldrums.
The Huskers, holding their mis
cues to a minimum on their early
season swing in the west, were
rewarded with five wins while los
ing only once.
When the travelers returned
home, they hit the skids on de
fense and succumbed to Iowa
State. They fought right back the
next day and swept a doubleheader
from the bewildered Cyclones, who,
at the time, were lading the con
ference. Tight defense and a heal
thy hitting barrage provided the
The same "teeter-totter" course
of events prevailed when the Husk
ers entertained the Drake Bulldogs.
In the series opener the Huskers
fell apart at the seams and lost;

however, they fought back the next
day and bombed the visitors,
without committing an error.
The hitting department thus far
this season has shown pretty good
power, with Al Newbill, Jam Kane,
and Gene Toroczon providing tb
early season punch.
Now with the stretch drive ahead
of them, the Cornhuskers first, do
battle with the University of Mis
souri. Coach Tony Sharpe will en
ter this important series with an
infield including Frank Nappi at
third base. Frank appears to have
shaken his slump so will get th
starting nod. Versatile Jim Ku

veteran Al Karle will continue his
tenure at second-base.
