Keith Gardner, the Jamaican
Jet, is the Nebraskan's Star of the
Week for his world record tying
high hurdles time against Okla
homa Saturday.
The record still awaits certifi
cation by the AAU, governing body
for American intercollegiate ath
letics, however, Gardner said
Tuesday that all signs pointed to
AAU approval.
Gardner pointed out to me that
if his opponent in the 60 yard
Frank had been hired by the Uni
versity and requesting Gardner to
come up for fall registration. Keith
wrote back that he would be there
and then got out a map to look
for Nebraska.
We got to talking about high
school experiences and Gardner
told me he had attended Black

mate in the hurdles, Keith Young,
had not forced him all the way in
both races, his times would not
have approached the excellence
which they did. "I would have run
the dash in about .06.2 and the
hurdles about .07 if it hadn't been
for them," Gardner said.
Gardner is an example of the
recruiting skill of his coach, Frank
Sevigne. Gardner relates that he
saw Sevigne once in New York
after the British Empire games in
Canada in 1955. Sevigne talked him
into coming to Georgetown Uni
versity and Keith returned to Ja
maica. In the interim, he got a
letter from Sevigne saying that

How many times over the years
have you glanced at the sports
! page of your favorite fish wrap
' Der in search of a bit of fas
cinating news on Hoaglie Vlan
i dowshlidy, your favorite squash
: player, and found in its place an-
other tirade on the death of
school soirit at NU? (Remember
you read that paper every day for
Then again, how many times
lover the years have you gone to
! a NU football game or basket
I ball game to find the place full of
people standing on each otners ieet
and hollering for a victory?
If you are a died in the bleacher
sports fanatic, probably both things
have happened to you many times.
This is all fine and to the full
credit of you and the university.
But, (and here's the Cadillac
question) bow many times have
you gone to watch the swim team,
tennis team, wrestlers, golfers or
gymnasts? This is not a claim
that we should bave pep rallys
for these people. The sudden pub
licity would kill them. It isn't a
claim that Cobs should be ex
pected to attend all of these events.
The schedule would kill them.
Last of all it isn't a plea that you
go watch my favorite sport. My
spot in the armchair is a great
place for impartiality.
It is a quick look at some of
thp reasons why people trot off
i into the cold of night to watch a
bunch of people throw a basket
ball around.
To start with it is unaouoeaiy
great deal of fun to go to a sports
event. Generally there are lots of
people running about to see. Then,
too, it's sometimes quite interest
ing to actually watch the game
itself. And it's very relaxing to
lose sight of your own overwhelm
ing troubles in the excitement of
the game.
Besides the purely selfish const
of entertainment and re
there is the duty that
manv feel to go and watch the
results of many of their friends
hard work. Translation: Mary
tilrixl tn CO and watch that big
hAantiful brute John run around
nut there on the floor.
Last of alL although certainly
nnt last is the desire to watch
the team because it represents the
University. It is this last reason
which so interests the outside
sportswriters and which has been
recognized by some of our lead
ing University citizens.
All of these are good reasons
for attending the big three in
sporting events: football, basket
ball, and track. Often however,
we lose sight of the fact that they
are equally good reasons for at
tending baseball games, wrestling
meets, etc.
Consider entertainment. For
those who know what is going on
there is nothing more fascinating
than a good wrestling match. It
is an exciting exhibit of the old
est sport known to man, hand to
hand combat, and far more
thrilling than any TV or movie
Tennis matches, gymnastics
meets, baseball games, and swim
meets all have their own excite
ment and fascination. The enter
tainment value of these sports is
recognized the world over.
Certainly the individuals in these
sports put in as much time and
effort as participants in other
sports. Certainly they deserve to
be recognized and supported by
their friends for the fine job that
many of them do.
In their final function of repre
senting the University the parti
cipants in these sports do a job
which deserves the support of Uni
versity students just as much as
those of the better known sports.
The only thing minor about the
events and the job that they do!
is the support that they get from!
the University at large It is I
strange that an athlete of the sta-
ture of Dan Brand or Frank
Thomson do not receive the rec
ognition from the student body
that they so obviously deserve.
River High in Jamaica. "We had
track in high school and we had
all-island championships at the end
of the school year. You know, I
never won a thing in those races.
I went once and didn't win any
thing," Keitn cnuckled.
"When I left school," Gardner
continued, "I started running for
the Jamaica Amateur Athletic As
sociation. Philander Smith College
traced me there through my times
ana onerea me a cna-ce to go
up there for school. I went, and
that's how I tost this year of eli
Gardner is regarded as a senior
by the AAU. He is certainly a
senior college student as far
age goes. Keith is listed on the
information sheet as 26.
' When I asked how he thought
be would do in the upecming dual
at Colorado Friday, he replied,
"Well you know they have this
Chase fellow. I just barely beat
him last year, we went out there
last year undefeated and they beat
us to death. We aren't going to
relax for this one."
Gardner certainly won't because
he is not the relaxing type. His
schedule for the rest of the year
calls for a term at Nebraska
Boy's State as a councilor after
school is out and hen he plans
to attend the British empire games
in Europe.
