Husker-Buff Tilt Rated Even Match in Big Seven Opener By DICK BECKER Staff Sports Writer Two teams, which must rely on the fundamentals of basketball, get the Big Seven Conference basketball race underway at the Coli* seum Monday night. Without benefit of 7-fcK)t centers or hoop phenoms, Nebraska and Colorado will square off to settle things on about even footing. Both clubs use the same ingredients in cooking up their basketball concoction—team balance and hustle. * Neither club has an outstanding star in the Wilt Chamberlain or Gary Thompson class. Neither has a man over 6 foot 8. But both have provided some top basketball in the pre-conference activity. Coach Sox Walseth, making his debut in the league as successor to Bebe Lee, has taken a club tagged for the cellar and come up with a fancy 9-2 record. The Buffs worked to the finals of the pre-season tournament at Kansas City where they bowed to Kansas. Walseth, like Nebraska's Jerry Bush, has to get a hustling performance from his kids each night. His main worry right now is injuries. Center Jim Jochems, 6 foot 8, and Guard Bob Helzer will not suit up for the Nebraska game, according to Walseth. Injuries are hobbling both players and they may not be able to play when the two teams meet in a re-match at Boulder next Saturday. Sophomore Don Walker, who did an excellent job filling in for Jochems at Kansas City, also has a sprained ankle. But he will be in the lineup when the whistle blows Monday night. Colorado, probably the most traveled team in the country, will be well acquainted with the Coliseum. After a trip that carried to the West Coast, Kansas City and Miami, the Buffs arrived here Friday morning. Buffs Suprise Of the Buffs, Bush says, “They are the most improved team in the league. They are a fine ball club and will be tough to beat.** Walseth is quick to answer with praise for the Comhuskers. “Nebraska has a real good ball club. They have a fine offense and as good ball handlers as there are in the conference.” And if you ask both coaches, they will tell you that the Big Seven Conference is at an all time high in basketball. Both agree that any team able to win on the road will have a good jump toward the title. Lineup Changed Bush will send a revamped lineup'’against the Buffs, changed at least from the last time Lincoln fans watched the Huskers. With the season about at the halfway point Nebraska has a 6-5 mark and four of the five losses have been to top rated teams— UCLA, Vanderbilt and Iowa State. Bush will open with Lyle Nannen at guard in place of Jim Kubacki. Gary Reimers will be at the other guard with Ron Parsons at center and Captain Rex Ekwall and Don Smidt at forwarda. Nannen can also play forward and will see duty at both positions. Hot Race The Big Seven race promises to be a hot one with everybody eyeing a shot at Kansas, the nation’s No. 1 team. Right now they line up with the Jayhawks the favorite with Iowa State and Kansas State the leading contenders. Colorado and Nebraska come next with Missouri and Oklahoma toward the end. But everyone agrees that the Big Seven has better balance than in past seasons and that upsets should be the rule rather than the exception. The Monday night game will begin at 8, preceded by a freshman intra-squad game at 6:30. This w'ill be the only home appearance for the Huskers in Jai>- uary. The next game at the Coliseum will be Feb. 9 against Kansas. Wesleyan Trounces Westmar mu Wim 7th In Ron, 80-68 Nebraska Wesleyan’s sharp- shooting Plainsmen had an off night Saturday, but still had enough guns to blast Westmar of LaMars, la., 85-68, at Taylor gym. It was the seventh straight win for Coach Irv Peterson’s lads after an opening loss to Iowa Wesleyan. For Westmar it was a third defeat against seven wins. The lo- wans had previously bowed only to South Dakota and Creighton and were expected to furnish a rugged test for Wesleyan. But, in an ice cold beginning for both teams, Westmar went seven minutes before scoring. By that time the Plainsman had ground out an 8-0 lead and West­ mar never got any closer. Sub Guard Dick Evenson pepped Wesleyan through the rocky first 10 minutes, getting 10 points to spark his mates to a 43-30 halftime bulge. It was never close in the second half as little Lowell Johnson began pestering Westmar with his set shots and deadly accuracy at the free throw line. Johnson hit 14 of 15 free throw attempts and wound up his evening’s work with 26 points, high for the contest. Actually, the work at the free throw line helped the Plainsmen pad their margin. Field goals were close with Wesleyan holding the edge, 30-28, but at the NEW YORK Jackie Robin- charity line the Lincoln club pot- ^ first-person copy- Wilt Outscored—KU Belts Missouri, 92-79 VIeek to SMU Grid Job 10-Year Pact Settles Issue DALLAS, Tex. ij?>>-Bill Meek, University of Houston coach, Saturday night accepted a 10-year contract as head coach of Southern Methodist University, Matty Bell, athletic director, of SMU announced.

The Board also boosted Athletic Director Bill Orwig’s salary from $12,600 a year to $13,200 and granted $500 a year increases to five assistant football coaches. Athletic coaches are paid from r e ce i p t s from intercollegiate events, not from tax funds. Chancellor Clifford M. Hardin plained. In recommending Elliott’s increase, Regent J. LeRoy Welch of Omaha commented that “Elliott’s outstanding success during his first year should bring him a salary more commensurate with his service.” Welch observed that the coach *‘has attracted nationwide attention to the University of Nebraska.” Elliott was out of town Saturday and not available for comment on the new agreement. righted story to appear in next Tuesday’s issue of Look Magazine, says he is “quitting baseball for good” because “I have to think of the future and the security of my family.” Robinson, the Negro who broke baseball’s color line and became one of the game’s greatest stars with the Brooklyn Dodgers, said he reached his decision before being traded to the New York Gaints by the Brooks last Dec. 13. In the Look article, titled “Why I’m quitting^^aseball,” Jackie said “I couldn’t tell Mr. “Horace” Stoneham (owner of the Giants) I was through with baseball forever because I had agreed long ago to write this story — when the time came ■— exclusively for Look. And as a matter of fact, I was working on the story when Mr. Stoneham called” to tell him of the trade. “I’m quitting baseball for good,” Robinson writes, “and there shouldn’t be any mystery about my reasons. I’m 38 years old with a family to support. I’ve got to think of the future and our security.” Robinson, who broke into baseball with the Dodgers’ minor league farm club at Montreal in 1946, added: “At my age a man doesn’t have much future in baseball and very little security. "I’ve been thinking since I was 34 that 1 should be thinking of my future. After you’ve reached your peak there’s no sentiment in baseball. You start slipping and pretty soon they’ve moving you around like a used car. You have no control over what happens to you. I Rookie of the Year iii 1947 and listed No. 3 among the league’s active life-time hitters with a .311 average at the end of ‘the 1956 season, kept his decision well hidden. While many of his close friends among sports writers suspected something was afoot, he did not officially disclose his decision until writing the Look article. And he apologized in the article for the secrecy. “I’m through with baseball. . . . I want to explain just how it happened because some people may now feel I haven’t been honest with them these past few weeks when they have asked me about my plans. “I’ve always played fair with my newspaper friends and I think they’ll understand why this was one time I couldn’t give them the whole story as soon as I knew it.” Robinson, who was not immediately available for comment (He was reported en route to New York from California by a Look | spokesman), apparently has junked any idea of becoming base-1 ball’s first Negro manager—for | the present, anyway. I Jackie, insisting in the article • that “I’ll just be another fan— a Brooklyn fan,” wrote that his wife, Rae, didn’t try to influence his decision. The Robinsons, have three young children and live in Stamford, Conn. The long-time star, who played in six All-Star Games with a .333 batting average and appeared in six ’World Series with the Brooks with a .234 batting mark, got his chance in baseball under Branch Rickey, then president of the Dodgers after an earlier try out | with the Boston Red Sox. an executive with a New York restaurant chain before his trade to the Giants. He will become a president in charge of personnel relations this March.
