It's not that the Huskers are leading the Big Eight, but the improvement shown since finishing last in the preseason tournament has been some what remarkable. Latest of the surprising feats was a 54-53 upset over Oklahoma State, former sole leaders of the loop last Mon day night before 4,200 fans at the Coliseum. Why all the sudden success? "We feel that our players arc getting more confidence in the type of game we use," says Coach Joe Cipriano, in his first year at the Corn busker helm. "Our offense and defense are now becoming second nature to them." "J think this is a problem of all coaches in their first year," he says of the change in philosophy from last sea son. Another reason for the good showing of the Huskers was the play of Charlie Jones. Jones, the leading NU scorer, hit totals of 23 and 14 points in the last two games. The 6-1 hustler from Wash ington, D.C., also teamed with his partner at guard, Grant Simmons for several defensive plays.

Downtown Lincoln just weren't ready to play ball." The Huskers began their rampage with a 55-5? win at win at Iowa State before getting belted at Kansas. The cagers moved into high gear with an overtime w i n against Missouri, 74-69, and a victory over highly regarded Oklahoma City. With the pressure of final examination staring at them, the Huskers lost at Missouri, 78-60, and in over-time against Kansas State, 73-66. "We were just starting to get an edge against Okla homa City," says Cipriano, "but we lost it during finals week due to lack of practice." But after finals and a 76-69 double overtime win against Oklahoma, that edge came back against the Cowboys as "we had our best night of basketball," says Cipriano. "We didn't use the fast break too much, but our pat terns worked well, and we hit the basket (the Huskers hit at a clip of 51.1 per cent). Anytime the ball is going in the basket, you're doing all right." - Bowlers'll-lMark Gives Them Lead Nebraska's bowling team with a tremendous 11-1 per formance at Wichita last Sat urday has taken the lead in their bowling league. Their record of 544 wins against 29' losses gives them a 3-game margin over second place Kansas University. Rounding-out the league are Kansas State and Wichita Uni versity. The final round of the sea son will take place on Mar. 14 at Kansas State with the league champion going to the national tournament at a date to be set later. KfcBEAKK TOT ALU Kmi IM U4 4 T'Hul Ai.

Ace Steve Wallenz, who last year contributed points in the NCAA and Big Eight meets, was a mid-year scholastic casualty. Adding further to Poach Argonaut Doubl-Daty What Atehesom W anted Many students are working their way through the Univer sity of Nebraska but Jeff Atcheson is the only one doing it with earnings from two jobs with the Toronto Argonauts left halfback on offense and corner linebacker on defense. The switch of being a stu dent and professional football player after not making the grade on the Cornhusker freshman team in 1962 is something Jeff explains with ease: "The trouble was that I wanted to play with the Arg onauts so badly that I couldn't keep my mind on my fresh man football work." Jeff enrolled as an English major at the University this week to resume studies he in terrupted last spring. During the interim he signed with the Argonauts and played in 21 games. "I came out pretty well physically," he reports hap pily. "I just lost two front teeth and broke my nose and one little finger." Originally Jeff came to Ne braska at the suggestion of Argonaut coaches in his na tive Toronto. "If I wanted to learn more football, they told me I should go to college in the States just like if somebody In the States wants to learn hockey, they should come to Canada," he recalls. He chose Nebraska because of the Devaney football repu tation and because Nebraska is very good scholastically, Jeff said. The way to the profession al ranks in Canada's tough, speedy football is different from the usual route in the U.S.. Jeff explains. "School football in Canada: doesn't get the attention it gets here, so if you really want to play, you try out for ; any of a number of amateur 1 teams associated with the pro fessional clubs. While in high school I played with the Sar borough Rams, a suburban amateur team. My big dream has always been to play with the Argonauts." He had a chance for an Arg onaut contract when he grad-; uated from high school but there were complications. "I would have had to prove myself in four exhibition games and that would have ; made me a professional, in-) eligible to play collegiate ball ; in the States even if I failed to get an Argonaut contract," j Jeff declares. I Rather than risk his avenue : to college, Jeff stayed out of the exhibition games and en rolled at the University of Ne-: braska and then reported ; back to the Argonauts last; (' - ' J if If .v . -"rr r.F.TTlNr, BACK TO SCHOOL Jeff registers for second semester classes after successful grid campaign. summer and won his contract. Now he thinks he has a good chance of making it all the way through the University. "And I want to get a col lege degree," he says, con vincingly. "After all you can't play pro ball forever. The day comes when you get hurt or get too old and when that day comes for me I want to be able to do something else like teach, or maybe adver tising." He has already had a taste of the latter with a Canadian agency. "What do I do for the agen cy? Well, I haven't told any of the guys down here but, well, I m o d e 1 you know, clothes and cars stuff like that. It pays real well." Mancuso's woes were the loss of sophomore sizzler Phil Mc Caffrey who sunered a broken foot after compiling a 4-1 rec ord, and heavyweight soph Art Raschke who also was a scholastic casualty. Husker hopes at CU Thurs day and Wyoming Friday will rest on a pair of undefeated sophomores: 123-pound Rick Allgood and 157-pound Dennis Kendall, both of whom claim four victories. Other entries include Chuck Martin, the only upperclass man on the squad, Clifford Dobson, Gary Richards, John Hallgren, Wayne Williams and either Roger Lott or Jim Brown. . Two NU Teams Travel Westward For Colorado Tilts Fresh from a big win over Minnesota last week, Coach Jake Geir's gymnastics team will see action in the west this weekend as will Coach Dick Klaas' tankers.
