Delts leading, 9-7.

and company pulled away from
the Delts who could not seem to
start rolling. Dwight Siebler sunk
a couple field goals for the Delts
to keep them in the game but 'the
Phi Delts had an 11 point lead at
The play got rather ragged in
the third quarter and Ed Higgen
botham, Intramural Director, had
to caution the Phi Delts on their
aggressive play. At the end of the
third quarter, the Phi Delts had
lengthened their lead to 37-24.

ing from Kjeldsen and Moon Mul-

and a fast break which kept the
Delt's defense loose. In the fourth
quarter, the Delts attempted a full
partment is assisting with the
Rifle Club's program.
Personal Opinion
Surprisingly enough, I passed
bowling! It was a struggle, how
ever. The favorite summer sport, golf,
has begun rather early for me and
the mpmhers of mv P. E. classs
this semester. T,ast. Thursday we
dressed in our airy regulation j
an(j shorts and prepared our-1

Next week I will include a de
tailed account of the information
which our teacher gave us.
We even got to handle a golf
club! Of course, we didn't get to
hit anything . . . except each
other. Today, little green rugs
have been spread out on the floor
of 'the dancing studio. Also little
fake putting cups have been placed
on the little rugs. All we have
to do is putt little golf balls into
the little cups . . Should be quite
a challenge!
Nebraska will, play Missouri In
the Coliseum tonight at 8 p.m.

The two wins gave Brand a sea
son's record of five wins and one
draw. The big fellow is improving
steadily and. Ls expected to make
a determined bid for the Big Eight
heavyweight title. If "he makes it,
he will be the first Husker to hold
a Big Eight title since 1955.
Brand's h igh school grappling
experience is typical of a Nebras

Only three of Smith's first string
ers this year have had any high
school wrestling at all.

track. In track, he ran the half
mile and threw the discuss, which
may account for his mat co-ordination
and strength. He enrolled
at the University five years ago
and played freshman basketball
but did not become interested in
wrestling till he had acquired jun
ior standing. Since Brand is a
mechanical engineering major,
which requires a five year course,
re still had three years of eligi
bility left. Thus his academic
standing is that of a five year
man but athletically, he is a sen
ior. When I walked into the wres
tling quarters in the NU Coliseum,
I found Brand and ex-Husker grid
star, Ed Husman, pulling and tug
ging at each other like a pair of
bears. Though they both looked
like they could go 15 rounds with
Floyd Patterson, they seemed glad
of the interruption I made in what
appeared to me an attempt at dou
ble suicide.
Husmann is now a pro with the
Chicago Cardinals and he and
Brand were keeping in tone by
working out on each other. As they
'both rose to their feet, I could
see why no one else was willing to
go a couple of fast periods with
either of them. Brand towered 6'5"
and must have weighed in at about
205, while Husman didn't look a

row. The first time it was Sam
Salerno and he was really rough.
I brought up the coming Iowa
State meet and Dan said they
would be rough. "They blanked
Mankato, a team that beat us, but
if I can beat their heavy, it will
get me a long way toward that
Big Eight title," he said.
Speaking of his success as a
wrestler this year while last year,
he had only an average season
Dan said, "A guy can get by on
strength and experience for a
while, but it takes technique to
be really good. I used to think the

vantage but Smith taught me that
wasn't so. I work out with him and
he ties me in knots."
