    Nebraska's Athletic Picture Continues to Brighten;
Pittsburgh-Penn State Football Victories Are Tops
By Norman Beatty
Athletics at Nebraska dur
ing the first semester have
continued on an upward
tred
Tbe top stories have been
two wins by the surprising
varsity football team.
If three teams were to be
picked out of the 195ft Husker
schedule as teams they
couldn't possibly beat they
would undoubted have been
Penn State, Pittsburgh, and
Oklahoma. True enough the
Big Red seemed to be lucky
to escape the latter contest
with their lives, but the two
formerly mentioned contests
are all history.
Three Quarters
A valiant Husker team
fought three scoreless quar
ters with the heavier and
more experienced Penn State
earn before they finally fal
tered and the Nittany Lions
scored early in the fourth
quarter.
Almost every fan in the sta
dium was in a state of shock
as they rose to their feet to
watch dimunitive sophomore
halfback Pat Fischer ramble
92 yards on the ensuing kick-
off to put Nebraska back in
contention.
The spirited Nebraskans
were not to be denied as they
recovered a Penn State
fumble and turned it into a
touchdown. Fullback Carroll
Zaruba scored this time from
one yard out. Quarterback
George Harshman kicked both
extra points to keep the Hus
kers breathing easy. Larry
Naviaux led the victors in
ground yardage.
Pitt Panthers
A highly rated Pittsburgh
football team trudged into
memorial stadium fresh from
a 14-14 tie with Army. They
faced a battle-scarred team
that had lost its last five con
secutive games.
Little did the small but
loyal crowd expect a good
game, to say nolning aoout a
possible win. But history was
in the making as the entire
Big Red team fought tooth
and nail for four long quart
ers against the overpowering
Panthers. When the smoke
cleared the never-say-die
Huskers were on top of the
heap with a 14-6 victory.
Varsity Basketball
The upset champions of the
previous season are as hot as
they were a year ago. The
basketball Big Reds hold a
8-5 record so far this season.
Their real potential was dis-
I v fry.-1
played in the Big Eight holi
day tournament when Ne
braska copped a third olace
and a spot on the AU-Tour-nev
team. Current victories
include wins over Marquette,
Texas Tech, Missouri, and
Oklahoma and a. possible
third place finish in the Big
8 looks very feasible.
Paring (he Huskers are
Herschel Turner (All Big 8
tourney team) Albert Maxey,
Jim Kowalke (recently in
jured). Bob Harry and Wayne
Hester.
Joe Mullins
The Nebraska cross-country
team went six straight
meets without a defeat before
bowing in the Bis Eight meet
held at the end of the season.
Pacing the Huskers was Joe
Mullins from Canada who re
mained unbeaten until he fin
ished eighth in the field at the
conference meet.
Mullins, one of the greatest
ever to wear the Scarlet and
Cream, will try to fill the
shoes of the "Jet", Keith
Gardner, during the indoor
and outdoor track and field
season in the very near fu
ture. Sigma Nu
The Sigma Nus furnished
big news when they won the
All-University football cham
pionship by defeating the Den
tal College 19-13. The Dents
were independent champions
by virtue of their 20-7 win
over Phi Epsilon Kappa.
The Snakes also placed Don
Wenzl and "Yogi" Hergen
rader on the all-university
football team. Other members
of the mythical team were
Chuck Greenwald of Sigma
Phi Epsilon, Charles Arlzumi,
Beta Theta PI, Bob Leigh,
Hitchcock House, Mike Ed
wards, Dental College, and
Wally Bryans and Art Dewey
of Sigma Alpha Epsilon.
Also in he fall sportlight
was the freshman football
team. The frosb compiled a
2-0 record for the season. This
includes wins over Kansas
State and Iowa State.
Depth
Throughout both contests
they, showed surprising depth.
This was something new to
Cornhusker fans who weren't
used to seeing a Nebraska
squad that had several units
that were of near equal
strength.
Husker followers in this
state and other states will be
looking for better things to
come as these newcomers
take the field for the next
three seasons.

The one game that sopho
more Jim Kowalke of Sioux
City. Ia., was looking forward
to playing was against Iowa
State. The cyclone bas
tetters
come here
Saturday
n i g h t for a
B i g Eight
test against
Nebraska.
But Ko
walke likely
will have to
sit this one
out. His right
wrist, badly Kowalke
swollen from a sprain suf
fered when he was cut down
with a body block in the Mis
souri game, probably will
force him to the bench. He
also suffered a broken nose.
Jim attended Iowa State be
fore transferring to Nebraska.
John Cahill
If Jim is unable to go, John
Cahill, junior from Dakota!
City, who played well against!
Missouri, will get the call.!
Cahill, another sophomore, is
getting his sea legs and pro-j
vides necessary depth at a
crucial moment, Coach Jerry i
Bush said.
Another player, Dick Ship-
wright, is also about ready to'
believes. Shipwright, a $-1
junior from Pender, has been
stepping up his cadence in
practice, Bush said.
Improvement in the play of
Bob Ham-.
by a wrenched knee but
George Swank has spelled
him in the last two games
which provided Bob with suf
ficient rest to make him more
efficient than ever.
Iowa State is the last team
able to whip the Huskers on
the Coliseum floor. The Cy
clones took a 57-52 decision
here Jan. 18, 1958.
Iowa State graduated five
lettermen from that team, in
cluding John Crawford, top
scoring forward in Iowa State
cage history.
