Nebraska varsity swimmers
scored a moral victory at the
Coliseum pool Saturday aft
ernoon as they tuned up for
the Big Eight Championships
to be held at Lincoln High
March 7-9.
Due to a technicality the
Huskers lost to Iowa State
who last week upset the Big
Eight Champions, Oklahoma,
50-45. The Huskers lost to
Iowa State on a disqualifica
tion charge, 52-43.
The Husker swimmers were
behind going into the final
race, the 400-yard freestyle
relay, 43-45. A win would have
meant an upset victory for the
squad. The race was nip and
tuck throughout but in the end
anchor man, Phil Swaim,
touched out ISU swimmer
Dan McQuillen.
But the squad forgot that
KU was still swimming as
they jumped into the water
before- KU finished swim
ming the race. In the official
rules book there is a rule
stating that no one can enter
the pool until the race is com
pleted by all swimmers com-

Standout swimmers for the
Huskers were Phil Swaim and
Vern Bauers. Bauers swam
the breaststroke against de
fending champion, Bill Mur

who touched out Bauers at
the Big Eight last year. The
pair traded strokes through
out the race but Bauers won
the race, setting the new
varsity record in the proced
ure. Both swimmers were
timed in 2:24.0.
The 100-yard freestyle
was one of the best races of
the day as the first three
swimmers finished within .6
of a second behind each oth
er. Rol Wellman won the
event in 51.0 seconds, b u t
Huskers Phil Swaim and
Keefe Lodwig were right be
hind with times of 51.3 and
51.6 respectively.
Kansas University managed
to win just one event; that
was the 500-yaid freestyle
which was won by Mike Cal

As Bush Bows Out
Coach Jerry Bush saw his
home finale as a Husker men
tor drift from victory to de
feat in a matter of minutes
Saturday night as iue Okla
homa Sooners rallied to top
Nebraska, 77 to 75.
The Huskers, riding on the
crest of a powerful first half
performance, kept the home
crowd smiling with a thirteen
point lead and 11:43 to play
in the second half. With
only 6:50 left, Daryl Petsch
and Jerry Spears contribu
ted a pair of baskets apiece
to maintain the lead at 71 to
Then the series of Scarlet
errors began. Oklahoma capi
talized by scoring 18 points
in the six-plus minutes while
Nebraska could muster only
four. Speedy Eddie Evans led
the Sooner surge with six im
portant goals and ballhawk
ing afl over the court.
Big JHarvey Chaffin was the
hero, though, as he converted
a stolen ball into the go-ahead
basket for the visitors mak
ing it 73 to 72 with 1:46 show
ing on the Coliseum clock.
Jim Gatewood then drew a
foul from Husker Charlie
Jones and converted both
charity shots to put victory
out of Nebraska's reach.
GlartnS"3errors popped up all
over. Neil Nannen, pushed up
a hasty shot that barely made
the rim; Ivan Grape muffed
a vital lay-up with the Hus
kers ahead by three; Spears
missed a jump shot from
five feet out when Nebraska
trailed by one. j
In the first half, Nannen
led the Scarlet with 12 points
and Ivan Grape covered ,
the boards well against his !
taller opponents.
The game marked the last j
appearance for three seniors,
Ivan Grupe, Jim Huge, and
Jan Wall. Coach Bush also
put in his last night on the
Cpliseum floor.
Nebraska will finish the
1963 season on the road with
games against Colorado on
Monday and Missouri on

It's now a fact: every Ford-built car In f63 has self-adjusting brakes
"Give us a brake," Ford Motor Company engineers were told, "that
will automatically compensate for lining wear whenever an adjustment
is needed and make ii work for the entire life of the iining."'
Tough assignment but not insurmountable. Today, not only does
every Ford-built car boast self-adjusting brakes (Falcon extra-duty
bus-type wagons excluded), but the design is so excellent that adjust
ments can be made more precisely than by hand.
This Ford-pioneered concept is not complex. Key to it is a simple
mechanism which automatically maintains proper clearance between
brake drum and tining. -
Self -adjustment takes place when'the brakes re applied while backing
up. "This adjustment normally occurs but once in several hundred
miles of driving. The brake pedal stays up, providing full pedal
reserve for braking.
Another assignment completed and another example of how Ford
