the PEG-Board
By Peggy Speece
The Big Eight Indoor Track Meet.
After three years the magic of the event
still grips as tightly as ever and the thrill
of watching great athletes is ever new.
This meet had the greats it had the
Huskers' Charlie Greene, it had Mis
souri's Robin Lingle.
But the truly rewarding thing about
any meet is the sportsmanship displayed
by the contestants. That certain some
thing that makes an athlete an "over-the-top"
athlete call It desire, spirit, integ
rity, it's spelled sportsmanship.
And this meet had that.
There was Colorado's fabulous hurdl
er, Jim Miller. Defending champion in
both the high and low hurdles, Miller
was disqualified from the high hurdle
semi-finals for false starting twice and
pulled up lame in the lows.
It hurts to see a great performer get
hurt like that and his competition in the
events were truly sorry for Jim.
Saturday morning as Jim limped
around the lobby of the hotel, every ath
lete who saw him stopped to say a few
consoling words.
There were the guys who ran their
hearts out for their schools, for them
selves and for the satisfaction that comes
from a job well done. Guys like Nebras
ka's Jim Wendt who wasn't given any
chance at all in, the 880 and came through
like a champion, guys like K-State's Don
Payne who faced a similar situation in
the 440.
There are the athletes who are
great team men maybe they're good and
maybe they are average performers but
they want everyone in their team to do
their very best. Guys like Oklahoma's
Don Ellis, who encouraged his teammates
In the pole vault up to the very last second
before he himself had to run in the mile
relay. Guys like Missouri's Ron Peters
and Kansas' Bob Hanson who tried to
give encouragement to every teammate.
There were the leaders of the teams,
and the greatest of them all has to be
Tiger co-captain Robin Lingle. No one who
watched the slender athlete Saturday
night could help but admire him. A great
runner, yes. For two years Robin has won
both the mile and 1,000-yard runs. But a
great leader, too. Robin made sure each
member of the team received the need
ed encouragement and he was there to
see each event.
It was evident to the onlookers that
Robin went all out to set a record in the
1,000-yard run.
What the fans didn't see was the Rob
in Lingle who glanced over at the high
jump pit the minute that 1,000 record was
his. Teammate Steve Herndon was still
leading the high jumpers.
And there were the sophomores. The
youngsters trying to negotiate the difficult
turns of the board track for the first time,
the guys trying not to be impressed by
the big crowd and the outstanding ath
letes. These rookies will be the Robin
Lingles, the Charlie Greenes and the Jim
Wendts of next year's meet.
Guys like Nebraska's Lowell Stratton
who finished back in the pack of the mile
run but who went all out and ran his
best mile of the season. Guys like Mis
souri's Steve Halliburton who failed to
qualify but vowed that next year he will
know those boards a little better and will
be able to do something about it.
Over-the-top athletes, every one of
them. And there were others just like
them, many others. These are the kind
of performers that make track worthwhile.
Attendance Mark Set
Nebraska's football Cornhuskers offi
cially played before 230,446 fans at Memo
rial Stadium during the 1964 season.
NU ticket manager Jim Pittenger an
nounced the all-time Husker record, follow
ing completion of the annual ticket audit.
The 1964 crowd total at Memorial Sta
dium shattered the old five-game record
of 179,444 set in 1951. The 1964 total also
exceeded the former six-game record of
226,036 set hi 1963.
Coach Bob Devaney's Big 8 champs
also set an all-time season attendance rec
ord by playing before 211,587 fans in five
road games, bettering the 10-game sea
son mark of 396,147 set in 1956.

The intramural cage tourney
is coming down to the wire
with the playing of many key
games Tuesday night.
The spotlight of the "A"
league centered on the Sigma
Phi Epsilon-Sigma Nu game
in the Coliseum, with over two
hundred fans eagerly awaiting
the outcome. What they saw
was a hottly contested, foul
marred game which the Sig
Eps finally iced in the fourth
The Sig Eps put the clamps
on iigma Ju s highly touted
offensive duo of Bob Witte and
Bill Zuspan, something no oth
er team had been able to do
throughout the season. This,
combined with Kent Beach
ler's hot hand (15 points) and
Tim S c h m a d' s nine free
throws and three field goals,
garnered the victory.
The Sigma Nu's fought hard
all the way only to see their
height disadvantage tell un
told damage for second and
third shot attempts. Two Sig
ma Nu s fouled out of t h e
game, one of them Witte after
scoring 15 points, and finished
the game with only four players.
The Beta Theta Pi "B"
team remained undefeated by
upending Delta Upsilon "B"
36-29. They did it this time
without the usual fine per
formance by their two guards
Van Vahle and Bob Samuel
son. The Beta's were ahead
all the way after compiling an
eiht point lead at half. Rich
Rockwell of the DU's and
Beta Jim Humphrey shared
game honors with ten points
Phi Kappa Psi "A" wore
their Hob-nailed boots again
Tuesday night as they ten
derized Alpha Gamma Sigma
A" 68-29. The Phi Psi's fought
hard to score their second
straight 69, but fell one point
short. They again had four
men in double figures with
Larrv Wachholtz scoring 19,
Bill Marshall 16, Jerry Webb
14 and John Jepson 12.
AGS could only manage one
plaver in double figures, John
Miller with 12 points, and capi
talized on only one of nine
free throws.
Neither Sigma Alpha Epsi-
lon "A" nor Sigma Alpha Mu
'A" seemed to be able to find
the range in their game which
the Sig Alphs won 26-22. Sig
ma Alpha Mu held a one point
lead at the end of three quar
ters oniytobeneidtoa
meager one point in the fourth
quarter and lose. Bill Johnson
was the game high scorer for
Sigma Alpha Epsilon with ten

The swimming team will
journey today to Ames, Iowa
for the three day Big Eight
Conference Championships.
The Huskers take a 6-6 dual
meet record into the meet
which closes the season with
the exception of the NCAA
Swimming is on the grow
in the conference and this
year will be the first time
that all eight schools in the
conference will be repre
sented. Oklahoma State added
swimming last year and Mis
soun this year. Both teams
will be present at Ames, but
should give little threat to the
more established teams.
ine pool at Ames is new
this year and will be used
March 25, 26, and 27 for the
NCAA meet which will fea
ture several Olympic gold
medal swimmers. Missouri al
so has a new pool and Colum
bia will be the s 1 g h t of the
1966 conference meet.
Oklahoma is expected to re
peat as champion as they
have for the past fourteen
years. Iowa State is the most
improved team in the confer
ence and should have an in
side track with the home
pool to take second place. Ne
braska and Kansas should bat
tle for third with depth and
relays providing the necessary
margin. Kansas State and
Colorado should battle for fifth
with Kansas State having
more depth than the Buffs.
Newcomers Oklahoma State
and Missouri will struggle for
points in the six places given
in each event, but they wfll
provide little threat to the up
per division teams.
Nebraska's only losses in
the conference are to Okla
homa 55-38, and Iowa State
52-43. Five of the Huskers
meets were determined by the
last relay including the meet
last week against the Cyclones
and the first meet of the year
against a very strong fresh
man team. (52-43).
The traveling list to t h e
conference and their dual
meet scoring totals for the
season are:

In the distance freestyle
events, Tom Nickerson, Tay
lor Withrow, Dick Frank, and
Mike Waldron should lead the
Husker threat. Last year
Nickerson placed in all three
events, the 500, 200, and 50
In the butterfly, Jon Burch
ill should be a good threat
in both the 100, and 200 fly.
Burchill holds both the var
sity and freshmen records in
the 200.
The sprints should be lead
by Ron Gabrielson, Ken Mil
ler, Dale Parker, and Harley
Barber in the 50 and 100 yd.
freestyle. Barber is also a
good utility fly man.
Diving will be Terry Tice
and Bob Gliesburg in the one
meter and three-meter boards.
Mike Jackson, Bob Frisch
and Gayle McAdams should
go in the 100 and 200 breast.
Jackson is defending champi
on in the 200 and was the
1964 winner in the 100 but was
Dave Frank should lead Ne
braska in the backstroke and
individual medley. Backing
up Frank in the back will be
Doug Sutton and in the IM
"Chili" Chambers.
The relays could be the d
terming factor in the tight
race for upper division places
Nebraska has a good chance
for second in both the medley
ana tree relays.
