Coach Dale Snook swept his bench early in the one - sided fray. tJim Dick, a 6 - 1 senior, supplied most of the early momentum. He notched the first 7 points in the contest before cooling off to finish with 10. The southpaw guard opened scoring with a driving layup wiui w seconas gone. A minute later he connected with a jumper from the top of the key, then added another acrobatic layin and followed with a free throw to make the icore 7 - 0.

Reports from Utah indicated that Dye and Ralston might be meeting soon. Ralston's Utah State teams have lost just 3 games in the last two seasons, the latest a defeat in the Gotham Bowl by Bay - lor. There were no indications that Ralston was as strong a candidate as Foldberg had been. Dye said, "There are a lot of successful, good coaches and just because one goes by the wayside doesn't mean we won't get a good one." 4 Dye has indicated he wants a successful head coach, one not in the Big 8 Conference and one not from the professional football ranks. This would seem to eliminate many coaches. Some of the countrv's sur. cessful young head coaches besides Ralston are: Jim La Rue of Arizona U. Jim Miller of Detroit U. Bill Hess of Ohio U. Ray Nagel of Utah. Bill Eliai of Virginia. Bob Devaney of Wyoming. There are veterans from the East like Jordan Olivar of Yale and John Bateman of undefeated Rutgers. In the field of assistants would be men like Bob De - Moss, who was so successful at Purdue when head coach Jack Mollenkopf was hospitalized this year. There are also "name" coaches who have been let out this year. This list includes Harold Lahar of Hou - ston, Bill Meek of Southern Methodist, Jim Myers of Texas A. and M., Andy Pilney of Tuiane, Dale Hall of Army and Eddie Erde - latz of the Oakland Raiders of the AFL. Dye indicated he hasn't talked to all of the coaches he is interested in. He will not make the names public uuw auer me contract has been made. To make sure that Nebraska's recruiting activities continue until a head coach is hired, Dye has Cletus Fischer working along with George Kelly and Jack Bra - ley.
