Students who do poorly on hour exams and finals now have a
place to vent their frustrations. That place is a boxing ring in the
basement of Schramm Hall, according to Mike Wilson, president of
UNL's boxing club.
"Boxing provides an outlet for frustrations," Wilson said. The
26-year-old has been boxing professionally since 1972.
The boxing club is one of the newest clubs at UNL. Three
months ago, Wilson attempted to have the club recognized by the
Council on Student Life (CSL). He said the club would need no
activities funds during its first semester of existence.
CSL voted to allow the club to operate on a three-month trial
basis. That trial period ended last weekend when Lincoln's Golden
Gloves Tournament marked the close of the boxing season.
Club went well
Wilson said the first three months went well and the club will
begin regular practice sessions again next September.
Wilson said the club had about 11 regular participants and
several others who attended one or two sessions to learn the
fundamentals of boxing. He said no women have joined the club.
The club entered nearly all. of its regular participants in the
Golden Gloves Tournament last weekend. The tournament was
divided into 11 weight classes, ranging from 106 lb to
Two club members won their divisions. Bruce Pearson won at
156 lb. and Ron Stutzman was named the tournament's
outstanding boxer after winning the heavyweight division.
Open to all students
According to Wilson, the club will be open to any UNL student
next fall. Students pay no dues and are required to supply only
their own handwraps and mouthpiece.
Equipment at the Schramm boxing ring includes heavy bags,
speed bags, sparring gloves, jump ropes, robes and trunks. Wilson
said boxers can run wind sprints in the basement halls in the
Wilson is assisted by a boxing friend, Monte Cady. Wilson and
Cady, both professionals, own 2-1 records. Saturday night they will
be in St. Louis fighting their fourth professional fight.
Students interested in the club should contact Wilson at
477-1392. He said he will help students set up a training program

Freshman two-miler Harold Stelzer is planning
a withdrawal from the bank Saturday.
He'll spend his savings at the 47th annual Big
8 Indoor Track Championships in Kansas City
where Nebraska's 12-man team will compete
Friday and Saturday.
Don't be mistaken. The Scituate, Mass., native
isn't withdrawing any money. His savings are in
the form of potential energy.
Stelzer, has missed some practice time in the
last two weeks because of tonsillitis. He said,
however, that his energy savings account wasn't
"People think if you don't work out for one
week you lose everything," he said. "But you
don't lose anything. I just haven't gained
Stelzer said he plans to 'spend' all his savings
Saturday. His 9:02.6 clocking is eighth best in
the Big 8 this season but he said times are
irrelevant because they are recorded on different
tracks and against different competition.
"Times, to me, are really nothing. Our track
isn't really one of the best around," said Stelzer.
"If you can get in the low 9:00's on our track
Stelzer was a Massachusetts and New England
champion miler in high school. His 4:17 indoor
time and 4:14 outdoor time are Massachusetts
Despite its limitations, Stelzer said, Nebraska's
dirt packed indoor track is better than nothing,
which is what he had in high school.
"I ran outside in the cold," he said. "Meets
weren't much better." Stelzer said they held dual
meets in the Boston Armory where sometimes it
was colder inside than outside.
Large crowds were also rare.
"I was shocked when I learned you had to pay
to go to a meet here. Back home you have to pay
them to go," Stelzer said.
New meet site
The Huskers, who finished their regular season
Saturday by beating Wyoming 83-48, should
perform before a large crowd at the Big 8 meet,
in Kansas City's new Kemper Arena. Municipal
Auditoirum held the meet for the past 35 years.
Husker coach Frank Sevigne said unbeaten
quartermiler Chuck Malito and sprinter Mike
Thompson should lead the Huskers. Malito has
the Big 8's second best 440 time of 48.2 and
third best 300 recording, 30.8.
Thompson has run the 60-yard dash in 6.2
seconds and trails four others who have run 6.1.
Shot putter Steve Millard is recovering from the
chicken pox and will not compete.
Sevigne said it shouldn't take many points to
win the team title this year because the teams are
?o evenly matched. Kansas appears to be the
favorite, he said.
The Jayhawks, who won the team title at the
U.S. Track and Field Federation Meet two weeks
ago in Oklahoma City, have the top
performances in six of the 1 5 events.
Kansas State won the title last year. Nebraska
