Dillard Named Star
For Washington Tiif
By DEL RASMUSSEN
Benny Dillard, last year side
lined for the entire season on the
opening play of the game, started
off his grid season last week by
gaining the respect of the Wash
ington State College players as
well as the JIusker fans in last
Benny was lost from the Husker
football roster in the Indiana game

bore down on the little halfback
and the resounding tackle relieved
Dillard of his football chores for
the rest of the season.
This year the little Texas speed
ster got off to a good start by
earning the Star of the Week
award for his part in the Husker
loss to Washington State last week.
Benny had not been slated to see
much action during the game but
his first few lugs with the pigskin
proved his potential to the team.
Other than Carroll Zaruba the
little Texas rambler covered more ,
ground, on the average, than the I
rest of the backfield. Benny's j
ground gaining went to a cause i
in vain, however, as the Washing-!
ton State boys swamped the Husk
ers. After the game Gary Morrell, !
halfback who covered the only 1
touchdown distance via turf for the
Cougars, stated to reporters that
in his mind the top offensive threat
for the Husker squad was the small 1
package of dynamite from Mt. j
Pleasant, Texas. Quarterback, j
Bobby Newman also sided with his
cohort halfback to single Dillard'
out for game laurals.
Benny Dillard hails from Mt. ,
Pleasant, Texas, is a junior in !
college and is 20 years old. He !
stands five feet seven inches from
the ground and weighs only 159
pounds, the lightest man on the ,
Husker squad. '
Since Benny was injured on the j
first play of the 1956 football sea-:
son he was voted another season's '
Nebraska's cross country hopes
bolstered by the addition of a
strong crop of sophomores, are
running higher than at any time
in the last two years, according
to Frank Sevigne, Husker track
For the first time, Sevigne will
have a solid squad backed by
the veteran, Bob Elwood, who fin
ished fifth in the Big Seven last
year. Elwood, a senior, has
turned in some outstanding dis
tance performances for the Scar
let and placed in the mile at the
Big Seven meet in Memorial Siad
ium last spring.
Behind Elwood is junior Knolly
Barnes. Barnes had a good year
as a sophomore trackster last
and probably Naviaux also. 1 " ut m
