Hawaii, Minus Quarterback, Ready to Test NU Hospitality Rainbow Coach Says Squad ^Much Better Thun Last Year^ By PICK BECKER jMrsirf SipmU EMtor Ntbriska^t Cornhu^era, t h 0 most traveled of collegiate football teams last year with jaunts to Hawaii and Miami, take over the role of host Saturday to entertain the University of Hawaii at Main orial Stadium. This opener of the 195.S gridiron season for Coach Bill Glassford*s lads will certainly test the hospitality of the Huskers who are favored so heavily that no pc^t odds are being given wi the game. Probably the final score will be decided by Glassford who will be the only person able to make the cnaritable moves necessary to hold down the score. Kickdf time is 2. Mock SU'onger The Rainbows are expected to be much stronger than last year when they absorbed a S(M) lacing. Addition of Skippy Dyer, a fancy­ footed halfback, is supposed to give the Hawaiians a more potent attack. The Hawaiians will be without the services of first string quarterback Dick Hadama who suffered PAGE 17 LINCOLN 1, NEB., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16. 1955—P.M. two broken fingers. His place will be taken by Fred Nagata, a sophomore. Coach Henry Vasconcellos says his club “is much better than last year.” “We learned a lot playing Nebraska last fall,” he said. Next Week • Nebraska, looking a bit past this game to next week’s rugged test i against Ohio State, will have a j hard time coming to a peak for the battle. ! ★ ★ ★ 20,000 Orchids For Lady Fans A flower for madame! There will be 20.000 Vanda orchids passed out to the ladws at the Hawaii-Nebraska football game Saturday at Memorial Stadium. The University of Nebraska Tassels will pass out the pc»eys which are the gift of the people of Hawaii and the Hawaii Visitors' Bureau. Glassford has indicated his main worry this fall will be over the depth of the squad. ............... The backfield has talent galore in Quarterback Don Erway, Halfbacks Willie Greenlaw and Rex Fischer and Fullback John Edwards. Bolstering this group since his return from the Army is George Cifra, a two-year letterman at fullback. Sophomores But in the line Glassf(n*d will station some strangers to collegiate' activity. The ends are LeRoy Butherus and J(m McWilliams, both veterans. Tackles will be * sophomore Don Rhoda of York, a big but green hand and junior LaVerne Torczon, shifted over from center chores last year. Guards will be Jim Murphy, a junior who saw a great deal of service last fall, and sophomore Dom Kampe of Red Oak, la. At center will be Bob Berg jin, junior who picked up a year’s experience last fall. Ahnriage The Huskers have been bothered by an acute depth problem at the halfback spot during fall camp but that situation appears to be somewhat relieved now. At last report, only two will miss the Hawaii game, Frank Nappi and Leo Scherer. Nappi suffered a fractured foot bone injury last week and will be (Hit of action for four weeks while Scherer has been bothered by a troublesome tooth. If last week’s intra-squad sciim- mage indicated anything. It revealed a Cornh'isker team with a much more p(Hent air attack than the Rainbows faced last year. Ekjth Erway and Harsh man were able to connect with a fleet of receivers. The end corps, under the direction of John Kovatch, formerly at Northwestern, was bolstered this week with the return of George Mink, a letterman in 1952. Mink, an Omaha Benson grad, has not received his separation papers from the Army yet and. in onier to, get them, will most likely have to return to California next week. The Naval Cadets drill team from Pensacola will ^ntertain at halftime. i — ! I’enka mri i F*f 1ÎW» : shiAuni 1*<1 j An?mW 1%.', !

Only one of them, Wird, was among those who was given a good chance to win the title when play started and tiie beUing was that the former British champion would come through.
