Western League Is Ready TSS2&Z33BSlk The Wildcats of Kansas State, if as successful at home as on the mad, can move into fhe driver’s seat of the Big Seven title machine this week. The Wildcats, a definite threat for the title, have a 3-0 mark on the road, beating Iowa State, Missouri and Oklahoma, but dropped a fireball contest to Kansas at home. .Since it is conceded the team that can win on the road has the inside track, the Wildcats loom tough. t nlnradn H >'Hui K .una* S mi * I"»» Sidle N », MH C s K » I ikMhiima Fischer's decision to study medicine outweighs pro football ambitions In»a Stale ., ) H.inca« son* I nlnrado M .....

Rochester 103 j Bv LEO SCHERER JR. Journal Sports Writer The popular conception that professional football is a game for | gridiron giants is now a thought j of the past! Anyway, this is true in the mind of Rex Fischer, 160 pound Nebraska All-Big Seven halfback, who handled defensive chores for the West in the recent Shrine East- West battle at San Francisco. Fischer, smallest player on either squad, was contacted by Green Bay, Baltimore. San Francisco and Washington of the professional ranks while playing in the Shrine festival. The speedy Husker informer the scouts that he had decided to pass up professional football, but on his return to Huskerland he found a wire from officials of the San Fran cisco 49 ers. The wire insisted that Fischer come to terms with the member of the Western Conference of the National Football League. Why Not Football? “What makes a fellow with such a football background like yours pass up these offers?” Fischer was asked. With a broad smile, Fischer, who will enter Nebraska’s medical school in Omaha next fall, said. “This business of being a doctor was not a spur of the moment decision with me. “Ever since I was a small kid in Oakland, I have wanted to be a doctor. “I can remember when my folks would send me to see our family doctor and give me a couple of dollars to pay him. “instead of taking the money, he would stuff it back in my pocket and add 50 cents out of his own pocket to buy me a malt.” The confident Fischer, an All- State back in 1951 at Oakland High, continued, “After medical I'miHifi* (Mat* 'I Itwmii »,,, k.muk ...........

So Kansas State must come tl rough against Oklahoma Monday j r d Colorado Saturday to maintain is whip hand. The Sooners, with t ,ly nine players, should be rela- t vely easy pickings for the Wildt ts but the Colorado contest shapes up as the best of the week. Another top battle is scheduled for Ames on Saturday when Iowa fc sts Kansas. Nebraska returns to action Saturday after a mid-terin quiz layoff wilh Jerry Bush's eager* slated to met Emporia State at the Coliseum in a non-conference tussle. Other games this week include Oklahoma A&M at Kansas on Tues- cay and Missouri at Oklahoma on Saturday. There’s a good chance that the standings will be shuffled somewhat when the week’s firing ceases Saturday night. Kansas State, by winning both of its games, could take sole posession of first piace with a 5-1 mark. Links’ Bench Strength Outclasses Most AA Teams team like Lincoln could clean the 1 md. Possibilities Scottsblulf would undoubtedly be much less effective without Bob ! Rupp. Omaha South is a well balanced team But there is a limited supply of bench power to use as replacement for the five starters who usually go all the way. Central, a team Ihavt not watched, seems to fit a similar pattern, althought not as definitely bound to its starters. Northeast needs Rudy Stoehr an I W ayne Hester to win in .44. Boys Tow n is shy capable reserves as is Beatrice. Grand Island isn’t nearly as effective wiih Larry Feaster on the sick list, as he was last week end ! when the Islanders lost to Norfolk. Subs May Win Hastings has several tall and capable subs and may be tough by tournament time. This merry (at times), unpredictable (always! chase toward a State Basketball Championship may very well be won by the subs. Depth, rather than height, might be the J956 payoff. By JIM RAGLIN Journal Sports Writer Having seen seven of the Top Ten Class AA teams in action, one fact stands out in my notebook. None of the big schools is well stocked in reserve strength. Only Lincoln High seems to have more than eight players that the coach caPs on with any degree of frequency, despite how' the game is going. May Hit Jackpot The Links shuttle in and out of almost every game with seldom less than a dozen seeing some action. Coach Lyle Weyand works more combinations than a safecracker. His experiments may open the vault to a surprising finish for Lincoln High, too. Reliance on one or two key players, and (he possible loss of these standouts by fouls or illness, could wreck many teams rated higher than Lincoln. How the subs would stand up for a half or more of a game is a bridge not crossed by many coaches of clubs that stick to the starting five. It may work out that such a situation of substitution is unnecessary. But if subs are needed, a Yanks’ John Kucks Si<:ns Contract NEW YORK (UP> - Johnny K icks, a graduate of last year’s New York Yankees’ pre-training school, Monday signed his 1956 contract with the American League club. K u c k s. a right-handed pitcher, won eight games and lost seven in his rookie year. He won 19 and lost six for Norfolk in 1952 and then went into service.
