Since the beginning of the
Michigan State Relays only
one team had been afcle to
win three major relay events
until last Saturday night
which saw the Huskers take
the shuttle hurdles, the
mile, and the two mile re
lays. Nebraska wen all thre events
with ease barely missing records
In the shuttle hurdles Keith
Young, Bill Hawkins, Bill Marten
and Keith Gardner won In- :29.5
only a tenth of a second off the
record and far ahead of second
place Michigan University.
Nebraska also won with rela
tively little trouble over what had
been billed as a strong mile and
two mile relay field.
The mile relay combination of
Don House, Mike Fleming, Joe Mul
lins and Gardner posted a time of
3:18 only six tenths of a second
away from the record posted by
Michigan, the other school which
has managed to win three relays
in the contest. . -
The winner of the mile relay was
determined on a time comparison,
basis since the event was run in
two sections. In its section Nebras

State. Overall Kansas State took

Davis, who was an Olympic 400
meter hurdle winner.
At the end of Don House's lead
leg the Huskers were in third
place only three steps behind the
leading runner and one step out
of second. Fleming overcame this
slight deficit and handed a narrow
lead to Mullins, who, in turn passed
on a fat bulge to Gardner. Gardner

Mullins turned in the best ef

' The Husker wrestling team won
the first match of the season
Friday, as they easily defeated the
Great Lakes Naval Training Sta
The first scheduled match was
fori tted to Nebraska because the
Navy had no one to oppose Mar-
lin Luff in the 123 pound division.
Scrappy Ken McKee, In the 130
pound class, decisioned Marv Get
ty quite handily, 5-1.
Kent Walton, in one of the best
matches of the evening, pinned
137- pounder Bob Bocchino in 4:25
with a cradle hold. Walton, who
had not wrestled in high school,
has been improving steadily.
Popular Gail Baum thoroughly
defeated Larry Peter 8-3. This
147 pound match was a crowd
pleaser from start to finish.
John Anderson, a newcomer, won
the 157 pound division with a nifty
body press in 5:35.
Ken Lott, 167 pounder, was the
clutch performer of the night when
he came from a 1-4 deficit and
pinned Denton Smith in 5:58.
The Navy managed to salvage
3 points when Glen Rittenhouse de
cisioned Jim Novotny 5-4.
The final match of the evening
did not provide as much action as
the other matches. Heavyweight

pinned Bud Cutrell in 2:42.
An exhibition was held after the

enough time from nervously eyeing
the Husker hurdlers to deny that.
As expected the Big Eight Con
ference had the rest of the awards
well in hand. Kansas and Oklaho
ma added their efforts to Nebras

in top competition.
Oklahoma Dee Givnens won the
75 yard dash in :07.5 and the Soon

KU copped the distance medley
relay in 10:09.4 to compete the
Big Eight slam of the relays. In
individual events Kansas put on
an impressive display with Ernie
Shelby winning the broad jump by
leaping 24-4'4; Al Oerter pushing
the shot 54-7 for a first and Bob
Cannon tying for first in the high
jump. KU also won the two mile
run when Don Greenlee crossed
first in 9:30.
TAXI DRIVING, at best, is a checkered career. Some
days, nothing seems to click including the meter!
Traffic crawls, motor stalls, horns bleat, bumpers
meet. What a moment to reach for a Lucky and
discover (horrors!) you're fresh out. That's when the
most genial driver turns into a Crabby Cabby. And
why not? He's missing the best taste going ... a
cigarette that's light as they come. Luckies are all
light tobacco good-tasting tobacco, toasted to
taste even better. Try 'em yourself. And step on it!
