        Garry I have a hunch that you of all people know the answer but due to your non-amateur status on this board you are staying mum.

        If needed I will offer a hint tomorrow. And for a correct answer I'll want at least some small particular on the Butler guy as well.

        Sorry I called you a west coast dweeb, etc. Garry. I was just kidding, did not mean to sound contentious.

            As stated, that is not a good enough answer. You just might be guessing at Bert Nelson the same way you could have guessed Cordner Nelson.

            So if indeed Bert Nelson is correct,, who was the Butler athlete ?

                NO.

                The Butler connection is with Track and Field, not basketball. Without a valid Butler identification, the Bert Nelson answer is not valid. No, repeat no, points awarded to satch.

                And Bert Nelson is not necessarily the answer; but as a hint, the correct answer is indeed one of the two Nelson brothers, Bert and Cordner.

                    Bert Nelson is correct. When we were starting T&FN, a college coach wrote to Bert, congratulating him for his endeavor. The coach thought Bert was his friend, Bert Nelson the Butler high jumper.

                      And that is thew correct answer, whoever you are ! ( Seriously doubt you are "Cordner Nelson.")
                      \
                      Bert Nelson of Butler was NCAA HJ champ in 1932 with a leap of 6' 5 3/4".

                        MY ANSWER WAS BERT NELSON and was not a guess. Simple logic would have it that no one named CORDNER WOULD BE ATHLETE.

                          sorry satch but the "no credit" decision stands. You were unable to identify a specific Butler track athlete in juxtaposition ( hope that's not too big a word for you) to T&FN's Bert Nelson so no dice.

                            Bert Nelson is correct. When we were starting

                            And if that really IS you, Cordner, then it is our privilege to hear from you.
