Last week I had the oppor
tunity to hear two University

were speaking as authorities

the United States team as a
heavyweight wrestler. And
bow at 235 pounds he was one
of the lighter heavyweights
Bob attended the University
C Wisconsin before trying out
for the Olympics. At Nebras
ka he hopes to compete in foot
ball, wrestling and track next
year if at all possible.
Soft-spoken Lynn Headley, a
junior member of the Husker
track squad, spoke about his
experiences as a member of
the Jamaican Olympic squad.
Lynn is toe defending B i g
Eight 100-yard dash champion.
NCAA Champ

The Big Eight conference

power by virtue of Missouri's
team championship and Okla
homa State's second place in
the same event.
At the United States Track
and Field Federation's meet
in Milwaukee, Charlie sped to j.
a victory once again. He tied
the meet record in the 50-yard
dash at 5.2. Jim was fifth in
the 1,000-yard run. a longer
race than he customarily

Todav we begin the All-Intramural selections with the
announcement oHhe All "C" team selections. The AH-"B"
team selections will follow on Thursday and the AU-Intra-mural
"A" selections will be announced on Friday.
The selections have been made solely on the basis of
votes by competing intramural teams. No team was
allowed to vote for members of its own scuad.
Nearly three hundred votes were received on ballots
from nearly sixty intramural teams, so we feel we have
a reasonably good cross section from which our all-star
players emerge.
It should be pointed out that the independent teams
played single-elimination in the "A" tournament, and the
fraternitities played double-elimination. Since an import
ant factor in a player's garnering the opposition's votes
is playing against as many different teams as possible, the
independent teams who lost early in the tournament are
at a natural disadvantage. There is nothing that can
be done to rectify this situation under the present form
of tabulation.
If a player from an independent team which did not
finish high in the tournament received enough votes o
qualify him for an honorable mention slot, the chances
are good that on a more winning team he would have re
ceived more votes.
The compilation of the squads was a good deal more
work than it might first appear.
Thanks should be extended to Joel Meier, intramurals
director, for his help in distributing the ballots and his ad
vice in the management of the voting: James Pearse and
Bob Gibson who helped with the vote-counting, writing, and
other jobs: and Don Voss. who is doing the work on the cer
tificates which will be given all players who receive men
tion in the selections. .

We received a letter from Jack Frost of KLIN Radio
clarifying an error in the story about Bob Zenner being
the receipient of the Oustanding Nebraska Sportscaster
award. It reads, in part, as follows:
"Eoo Zenner operates as Sports Director of KOLN-KGIN-TV
and KLIN Radio. KOLN-KGIN-TY and KLIN Ra
dio are under separate corporations, yet we cooperate as
members of the Comhusker football as well as basketball
game information and entertainment medium. AH of the
Nebraska Cornhusker football as well as basketball games
were broadcast live over KLIN Radio, not KOLN-KGIN-TY.
The film reports were aired on the TV medium, but
the live coverage was provided through the facilities of
KLIN Radio. It was Bob's broadcasting on KLIN Radio of
these sports events which, in a large rart. merited his
coveted award."
The article Mr. Frost refers to implied a connection
between KOLX-KGIX TV and KLIN" Radio. Our apologies
