Nebraska failed in its bid to
move into third place in the

the three-game series Friday
and Saturday in Lincoln.

first, 4-0, and Nebraska com
ing back to take the nightcap,
10-0. The Wildcats won Satur

7-11 Big Eight record for sixth
place and a 9-14 overall rec
ord. Steve Smith captured the
batting title for the Huskers
with a .351 mark. Jerry Har
ris finished at .338. Don Schin

.290 to .333 during the final
series. Rex Swett finished just
below the .300 circle with a
.296 average.

Huskers' Grand Old Man
Memory of Schulte Lingers
On Husker Athletic Fields
By Cloyd Clark
If ghosts can feel good and look into
present day events, "PA" Schulte is no
doubt smiling and saying "I told you so"
as he looks down on Nebraska's high
school trackmen this year.
Henry F. Schulte, the famed grand old
man of Nebraska who coached conference'
champion track teams nineteen times in
his years as Husker track head predicted
in 1921 that the "athletic age" was going
to descend on the world and that not only
team sports, but also track would be taken
in by this era.
Schulte, the originator of the "full blue,"
"half blue" and high school penthathlon,
has probably done as much as anyone in
developing this state's attitude toward
track and field events.
"Always finish the race, even if you're
last, finish." Schulte's words are engraved
on the Omaha World Herald Schulte Me
morial Trophy which is presented each
year to the outstanding performer in the
Big Eight conference meet.
The All-American footballer came to Ne
braska as the head football and track
coach, but in 1919 and 1920 a 8-6-2 record '
wasn't good enough for a football coach
and he was delegated to spend his whole
time developing track squads.
Nineteen Crowns
Between 1919 and 1938 Schulte won 10
outdoor and nine indoor conference cham
pionships in the Missouri Valley and Big
Six, and coached some of the bone crush
ing lines which plagued the four-horsemen
and Red Grange in the 1920s and
Although the Nebraska spirit which fills
the stadium every Saturday whether the
Husker gridders win or lose can not be
attributed to any one man, Schulte would
no doubt rank with Bible, Jones and Daw
son in the final poll.
Schulte was here before the scholarship
and was often known to see a stout look
ing scholar and impress upon him that
he should be on the Husker football or
track team.
The miracle power of the old track
coach is described by Floyd Olds in these
words, "When the tanned, husky-voiced
coach put his hand on the shoulder of a

closing the polls.
The letter nominating Mc
Dole says, "McDole has fin
ish a fmir-vear college foot
ball career during which he
logged approximately i,uuu
minutes of playing time as a
Husker tackle."
The letter states that al
though he was hit by the
mono bug as a sophomore,
he went on to average w min
utes per game.
McDole started at aeiensive
tackle for the North in the
Senior Bowl Game at Mobile,
Ala., and for the Blue in the
Blue-Gray game at Mont
gomery, Ala. . -
The letter says, "McDole
was handicapped in the Blue
Gray game by the loss of his
trainer, Jim "Fitzsimmons"
Brown. Brownie was detained
by the city of Montgomery in
a definite Southern maneuver
to handicap the feared tackle
from the North."

Clatchey opened the inning
with back-to-back walks and
Schindel plated both of them
with a double. Schindel moved
to third on a sacrifice bunt
by Rex Swett and scored oni
Harris grounder.
Nebraska got only three hits
off Wayne Thummel in the
first game as the Wildcat
southpaw had the Huiker
swingers under control.
Swett led off with a bung
single for Nebraska, but then
Thummel beared down and
didn't allow another hit until
the sixth when Schindel sin
gled. Bill Redmond got the
other Husker hit in the se
Husker righthander Jam
Wall gave up only four hits.
He allowed only one nm un
til the seventh when the Wild
cats picked up three.
Thummel Tough
Thummel struck out nine
Husker swingers and walked
only two in picking up his
fifth win of the year against
three losses.
Kansas State got only one
earned run in Saturday's tilt,
but the Huskers gave up three
unearned tallies bo provide
the Wildcats with a 4-2 vic
tory. Tom Ernst started for the
Huskers and gave up only
two runs on three hits. He
was coasting along with little
trouble when Coach Tony

sportscasters voted him the

"Well-liked and cited for
his sportsmanship, McDole is
described as a team player.
Always concerned with the
other man and with the suc
cess of the team before his
own progress, McDole has
proved a Cornhusker in the
old spirit'," the letter con
tinues. The letter nominating Rus
sell points out that he led the
Huskers in points scored
with 300, rebounds with 250
and field goal percentage with
49 per cent.
The letter points to tne
game with Utah as an ex
ample of his prowess on the
of Ernie Bonlstall in the sev
enth. Kansas State opened the
scoring in the fifth when Bob
Jones doubled, was sacrificed
to third and scored on Dean
Pease's sacrifice fly.
Nebraska came back to tie
with an unearned run in the
bottom half of the fifth. Smith
was hit by a pitch, stole sec
ond, went to third on a fly
ball and came home on a
passed ball.
Error Helps
The Wildcats came back to
take the lead with an un
earned tally in the sixth. Dunn
walked, stoled second and
scored when Husker catcher
Harris threw the ball into left
field trying to throw out Dunn
at third.
Kansas State added two in
the ninth before Nebraska ral
lied for one in the bottom of
that frame. A walk, a single
by Harold Haun and two er
rors on Swett gave the Wild
cats two unearned scores.
Nebraska started a rally in
the last inning when Swett
and Harris led off with back-to-back
singles. But a double
play ball by Dick Becher
broke up the rally as Swett
scooted across the plate with
the final run.
Nebraska pulled off four
double plays in the three
games to give them 23 for the
season, an average of one per
pupil, the boy forgot all else and listened.
Pa would say in a kind of fatherly voice,
'Son, you have the makings of a great
hurdler. Just stretch out and lengthen
your stride a bit and you'll be a cham
pion'." In 1938 bad health forced Schulte to
retire from the Nebraska track scene and
on Oct. 18, 1944, Henry Schulte died, but
many of his philosophies on athletics are
still applicable.
Phamplet Printed
Shortly after his arrival on the Univer
sity campus he printed up a pamphlet
"Track and Field Athletics" which was
distributed to all the Nebraska high
school coaches.
Alng with his theories on the half mile,
the javelin and the California roll high
jump, were several fatherly comments.
"Whatever you do, don't be afraid of
being a dub. The world wasn't made in
a day. The expert in any field of endeavor
has behind him a long period of ap
prenticeship or dubdom.
"No matter how gruelling the race, the
real competitor will not fall or grandstand
at the finish."
In regard to the Husker football situa
tion in 1931 Schulte remarked, "It's a
bunch of damned fatheads who put the
Nebraska football team on a pedestal,
Cornhuskers unbeatable, who make it so
worsnip at its shrine and consider the
tough on the team and coaches. This was
at n t'me when the Huskers had suffered
several upsets. A time when Missouri and
OKla..onict were the underdogs.
'Underdogs Fight Hard'
"They're the underdogs and fight all the
harder," the old man commented before
the Lincoln Lions Club. "What's the re
sult? Look at last season's record, you'll
find it there."

Nomination of Prokop
Brings Total to Four
Bob "Porky" Prokop is the final nominee for the Daily
Nebraskan Outstanding Intramural Athlete Award.
His nomination brings the final total to four with Myron
Pepadakis, Chuck Arizumi and Al Cummins preceding him.
The winner will be announced in Friday's Daily Nebraskan
and will be honored at a luncheon in the Student Union Fri
day noon.
The letter nominating Prokop says, "He has been Mr.
Intramurals for the past six years. In the major IM sport,
basketball, he has been honored six times as an all-University
Prokop's teams have won 125 and lost five in intramural
competition. He was a quarterback for the Kappa Sigma
football team, catcher for the softball team, a member of
the all-fraternity volleyball championship team, a finalist in
his flight of horseshoes, a compeitor in badminton and a par
ticipant in other minor sports.
Since it is quite possible that Prokop will retire from
intramural activities next year either by graduation or by
self-imposed retirement, I feel that we should truthfully
and sincerely honor this great intramural player by select

an honor that he deserves for his contribution to the Univer
