Four Relay Teams Entered In Sunflower Production;
Return Of Mullins Boosts Two Mile Baton Chances
Friday and Saturday, April
18 and 19 are the dates set
for one of the year's most im
portant track events, the Kan
sas Relays.
Coach Frank Sevigne an
nounced that he plans to send
four Husker relay teams to
the meet.
Return to top form of Joe
Mullins, sophomore middle
distance ace, has made it
possible for the Huskers to
enter a 2-mile relay team.
This team will be made up
of the same foursome which
won one of the three relay
crowns at Michigan1 State's
Indoor Championships earlier
in the season. Knolly Barnes.
Ken Ash, and Mike Fleming
will back Mullins in this
event.
Kansas Relays runners win
also meet the team of Keith
Young, Tom Hodson, Don
Phillipps, and Keith Gardner
which won the 400-yard re
lay crown at the Texas Re
lays. The 800-yard relay team
which won second place at
Texas is also to compete.
Gardner, Hodson, Dick Jahr
and either Young or Don
Ficke will run this event.
Sprint Medley
Coach Sevigne also plans to
enter Gardner, Jahr, Hod
son, and either Ficke or
Fleming in a sprint medley.
Among the individual com
petitors taking part in the
events will be Kenneth Pol
lard, who did 14 feet in the
pole vault, Bill Lafleur, jave
lin thrower; Bill Marten and
Bill Hawkens in the 120-yard
high hurdles.

51, to win the Big Ten In
door. Henry must defeat Iowa
State's defending champion
Phil Delavan and Al Oerter of
the Kansas Jayhawks if the
ribbon is to move outside the
Midlands where it has resided
for the past three years.
This trio wont be the only
potential champions in the
field. Oklahoma will present
a brace of 54 footers in
George Church and Dan Er
win. Baylor's Larry Cowart
was just below the mark in
finishing third at Texas with
a peak of 54-91"!!. Also, Paul
Schumann set a Texas varsi
ty r e c o r d of 52-1034 at the
Longhorn games.

Husker Soccer
Club Beats RAF
The University Soccer Club
scored three goals in the last
seven minutes to take a hard
fought 3-2 victory Sunday
from a Royal Air Force club
stationed at Offut Air Base.
The visiting Britishers
scored twice against a watery
Husker defense and left the
field leading 2-0 at halftime.
Like an old hen, the Husk
ers got tougher with age,
however, and the second half
told a different tale. Nebras
ka scored for the first time
when Manshur banged a loose
ball through the net with sev
en minutes remaining.
With four mmutes to go,
Bowden drew the RAF goalie
out of position and fired the
second Husker goal. The win
ning tally came with only sec
onds left on a nice bit of
teamwork.
Carrencedo broke tip the
RAF att? - and fed to Bow
den. Bowaen's cross field punt
to Manshur was good for the
final tally and earned the
Huskers their first win of the
campaign in their first league
start.

If Oerter can bring off a

A few days before Minne
sota's Bud Edelen was run
ning 9:05.4 for fifth in the
fastest NCAA two-mile field
of all time last June, an un
known Colorado Freshman
was clocking 10:06.8 for
15th. in the Big Eight year
ling postal derby.
Fantastic as it sounds, that
same Coloradoan will hurl
a firm challenge at the Go
pher veteran at Kansas next
weekend when the two meet
over their favorite distance in
a new Kansas Relay event
The lad's name is Bernie
Frakes, a sophomore who
ripped out of obscurity six
weeks ago when he dethroned
Kansas' Jerry McNeal in the
Big Eight Indoor games.
From the looks of things,
the Kansas relays will easily
uphold its reputation for being
one of the top-notch track
events of the year ....
Coliseum Beat
. . . b y george nwyer
The professional all stars played before a much less
than packed house at Pershing memorial auditorium Monday
night. The western all stars took a 108-105 victory from their
eastern counterparts before about 2,000 fans in a contest that
was not always professionally played.
In spite of often sloppy action, it was a wonder that the
pros could play well enough together to net the fantastic
scoring totals. Except for the six members of the two squads
who had participated in the NBA playoffs, most of the men
hadn't seen action in about three weeks. Moreover, the two
combinations had never played together as team units before
their Pershing appearance.
In spite of these drawbacks, the all-stars put on a good
show. Bob Cousy, the Boston Celtics smooth ball handler and
showman, came up with many crowd pleasing plays. Bob
Pettit of St. Louis, who scored 50 points in the final NBA
playoff contest, dumped in 22 points on a soft as silk jump
shot to take top scoring honors for the west
Pros Kid
The crowd got a big kick out of the Informality of the
contest as the pros frequently kidded with hecklers in the
stands and each other. Perhaps the highlight of the contest
outside of Cousy's ball handling was an out of bounds play
the east used in the second half. The easterners lined up like
a football team to form a screen for a Cousy long shot. The
west club lined aip facing their eastern counterparts, thereby
turning their backs to Tommy Heinsohn who was playing the
ball in from out of bounds.
Weird Play
Heinsohn took advantage of the situation to bounce the
ball off the back of one of the western defenders. Stepping
in bounds and retrieving the ball, Heinsohn dropped it in
much to the amusement of the west team. The referees
frowned on the play .however, and the bucket was not counted.
Lovellette Liked
Although outshone in ball handling by Cousy and scoring
by Pettit, the big favorite of the evening was the west's
monstrous Clyde Lovellette. The big man (6-9, 240 lbs.) led
tne wests rebounding efforts and, moving with amazing
agility for his size, stole the ball neatly two or three times.
Late in the contest he engaged in a playful attempt to steal
the ball from Carl Braun and when replaced in the lineup
after sinking a 20 ft hook shot, he trotted off the -court
grinning broadly to the applause of the crowd.
Playing To Win
In spite of their humor, the pros were playing to win
so much so that Slater Martin -and Cousy were both injured
in a last quarter tussel for the ball.

For a bunch of freshmen
members, Oklahoma State's
Cowboy's are being darn in
considerate of the older Big
Eight clubs.
The Cowboys swept a three
game series from Kansas
State last weekend to jump
into the conference lead.
Coach Toby Greene got excel
lent pitching from Roy Peter
son, Don Soergel and Joe
Horlen to take the three
games 31, 5-0 and 54.
The wins left Oklahoma
State the only unbeaten club
in the conference as Colorado,
Nebraska and Iowa State each
managed to save one of their
three games. Colorado downed
Oklahoma in the first half of
a double header, 1-0 but lost
the other two games of the
series 2-1 and 12-0.
Kansas surprised defending
champ, Iowa State, 13-4 and
8-3 after dropping the series
opener 5-1. Standout flinging
by lefty Larry Miller helped
out both victories.
Missouri's muscular Tigers
got five home runs, three by
Sonny Siebert and two by
Hank Kuhlman, to bomb Ne
braska in a double header
9-6 and 12-5 after losing to
Hnsker ace, Dwight Siebler,
6-3 in the Friday opener.
