# Advance sellout crowd cut down by snow. DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS
Supervising the steady growth and balanced development of one of the nation's top athletic programs is the Herculean task being carried out successfully by Bernie A. Shively.
Few who have observed the untiring efforts of the tall, silver-haired former All-America footballer in the service of the University of
Kentucky since 1927 and as Director of Athletics since 1938 will argue his fitness as an athletic Hercules. Not only has Shively guided the development of Kentucky as a nationally-respected power in major sports, but he has also gained personal prestige through a fair-minded approach to many problems.
During his tenure as Athletic Director, Shively has directly supervised major expansions in Kentucky's athletic plant resulting from the progression of the school's football and basketball teams to greater national promi-ISsB nence and increased patronage by the sports-minded public.
The seating capacity of Kentucky's football stadium, McLean Stadium on Stoll Field, has been doubled to bring the current number of seats to approximately 37,500 and on par with most other schools located in heavier-populated areas. Powerful lighting equipment also was installed during the 1948-49 construction to bring night football into new popularity. Partly to satisfy the overwhelming number of basketball devotees, who could not squeeze into the 2,800-seat Alumni Gymnasium, a long-planned
Chairman, NCAA Basketball Tournament Committee Memorial Coliseum was completed in 1950. Seating 11,500 persons for cage contests, the four-million dollar Coliseum also houses the Athletic Department and provided the frist permanent home for the school's many minor sports teams. More recently, Shively directed the acquisition of a pair of modern, ranch-style living units which have served as the home of the football team since 1954.
A large dressing room building and football practice field, used since 1955, was abandoned in 1959 to make way for a huge new men's dorm. Under Shively's supervision, a spacious new Sports Center has been prepared a short distance away on the University farm to take even better care of the footballers and spring sports teams.
All-America Guard At Illinois
A native of Paris, III., Shively attended the University of Illinois where he was an All-America guard in 1926 on the same grid team made famous by Red Grange. Demonstrating a claim to being one of the finest all-around athletes in Illinois' history, "Shive" also laid claim to the Big 10 heavyweight wrestling championship and annexed letters in track before graduating in 1927.
Shively came to Kentucky in 1927 as line coach of football under Harry Gamage. A shift in the coaching ranks in 1933 resulted in Shively's promotion to head of the UK Physical Education Department, a position he retained until he succeeded Chet Wynne as Athletic Director in 1938. During this period and the years following, he also served as track and baseball coach for several seasons and continued as a football assistant until 1944. The next year, 1945, he assumed full charge of the grid squad for one season before turning the job over to mentor Paul (Bear) Bryant in 1946.
The Kentucky Athletic Director served as chairman of the Southeastern Conference basketball committee for a number of years and for the past seven years has been president of the SEC Coaches and Athletic Directors Association. He is current chairman of the NCAA Basketball Tournament Committee, chairman of the NCAA Summer Baseball group and is active in numerous state and civic projects, including current direction of the Fayette County Recreation Board. Thousands of his friends honored his 30th anniversary at Kentucky by presenting him with a Cadillac at the Tennessee football game in 1957.
Shively and his wife, Ruth, have two children. Doug was co-captain of the Wildcat grid team in 1958 and now is coaching at VPI while daughter Suzanne was a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of UK in 1 957.
"Nation's Winningest Basketball Coach"
30 Years  Won 626, Lost 113  84.7%
For three decades, the sports wor Id^h^Tv^ched an amazing record being forged with near perfection our of meager raw material by a colorful figure in the Bluegrass country of Kentucky known familiarly to hundreds of thousands as the "Man in the Brown Suit."
He is Adolph Rupp of Kentucky and when the sport of basketball is mentioned today, a direct chain of thought brings out the name of this maker of champions who holds undisputed rank as the "Nation's Winningest Basketball Coach." The name of Rupp, feared and respected in opponents' hearts and beloved by the millions who have witnessed the remarkable success of his Wildcat cage teams, has become synonymous with the game of basketball.
Such unprecedented recognition for the fabulous mentor is only natural since his success in the past 30 years as head man of the fabled Kentucky cage thoroughbreds has been nothing short of phenomenal. It would take a book longer than his own technical bestseller, "Championship Basketball," to recite the record completely. Briefly, however, that record includes:
An amazing 626 victories out of 739 starts for an unparalleled wining percentage of approximately 85 percent against major competition.
Selection as the national "Coach of the Year" in 1959 for the second time in his career.
An unprecedented honor roll of four NCAA Tournament championships picked up by his Wildcats who hold the all-time record of 1 1 appearances in the national classic and can claim more victories in NCAA play (21) than any other team.
A nominal world's championship as co-coach of the successful USA entry in the 1948 Olympic Games which included members of Kentucky's NCAA champions.
A total of 19 Southeastern Conference titles since the league was organized in 1933.
Election to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1959 and previous selection (in 1946) by Helms Athletic Foundation as a member of their exclusive cage Hall of Fame. Recipient of the Governor's Medallion in 1959 for meritorious service to the Commonwealth of Kentucky and plaques of appreciation from the U.S. Air Force (1959) and Sugar Bowl committee (1951).
Election to the Kentucky Hall of Fame (1945), outstanding citizen of Lexington (1949) and twice honorary citizen of the City of New Orleans.
Coach of the winning East team in the Shrine East-West game 1959.
Development of more All-Americans (21) and more material for the pro ranks (20) than any other coach.
Four Sugar Bowl Tournament championships, a National Invitation Tournament title and four trophies from the first seven UK Invitational Tournaments.
Membership on the NCAA Basketball Rules Committee.
Rupp's Teams Play In Most Tournaments
Tournament invitations in pre-Rupp years were almost unheard of-Kentucky played in only seven sectional eliminations. In contrast, the Rupp-led Wildcats have the distinction of playing in more tournaments of all types than any other team. All told, his Bluegrass five has achieved the unequalled feat of 132 victories against only 35 defeats, covering action in 33 national classics plus 29 conference meets and the '48 Olympics.
Although the competition was nowhere near as rugged as the schedules played by today's nationally-recognized Wildcat brigades, Rupp's very first team compiled a respectable 15-3 record and Kentucky basketball has been on a winning plane ever since. The most games lost in a single season since Rupp added his touch was eight in 1940-41, but even that year was a winning campaign (17-8) and the remarkably low average number of losses per season in the Rupp Era is three.
His teams have finished as national champion in the polls four times in the last 11 years. They were unranked in the top 10 only in the 1952-53 campaign, when they were idle. Possibly his greatest achievement came in the 1953-54 season when the Wildcats rolled unchecked through a 25-game schedule of top-flight opposition to become the biggest-winning, perfect-record unit in all basketball history up to that time.
Rivaling that achievement, in the opinion of the sportswriters and broadcasters, is the tremendous coaching jobs turned in by the basket-
10 ball miracle man in the past four seasons. Four years ago, Rupp guided a moderately talented club to an 1 8th SEC title, third place in the polls and a ninth NCAA Tournament appearance while achieving a 23-5 record. The surprised experts, who had predicted UK would not win their own conference, voted Coach Rupp the runner-up spot as "Coach of the Year."
Even that effort went by the boards in 1958, however, as Kentucky's talentless wonders copped the NCAA title for an unprecedented fourth time. The Wildcats were unsung and almost unknown except by reputation and heritage. Not a single man had been honored on the All-Conference fives selected before tournament time and they had lost more games (6) in regular season play than any UK team in 17 yearsall of which added up to sure defeat except for the coaching genius of Rupp.
Wins National 'Coach of Year' Honor
If the experts thought that was tops in miracles, they reckoned without the amazing drive of this man Rupp. With four-fifths of his starting lineup gone, he re-built shattered foundations in such an astonishing fashion that the Wildcats rolled through the 1959 season almost unchecked. Although they failed to win the title in their increasingly-tough Southeastern Conference for only the third time since 1943, UK was generally conceded to be the nation's top team. Most experts agreed that the Kentuckians, who finished with a 24-3 record and ranked second nationally, missed a golden opportunity to pick up a fifth NCAA crown as they were upset by Louisville in the tourney opener. This feeling was given meaning as Rupp was accorded "Coach of the Year" honor by United Press International. The nationwide poll of 268 writers and broadcasters gave Coach Rupp twice as many votes as any other nominee.
Last year was not a great one by any standard as the Wildcats chalked up only an 18-7 marksecond worst season of the Rupp Era. However, many experts considered the outcome to be a tribute to one of the greatest coaching efforts ever turned in. Plagued from the beginning of the season to the end by adversity (sickness, injuries, eligibility difficulties and personnel problems), complete disaster was always imminent and avoided only by masterful juggling (16 different starting combos) and artful strategy moves.
Rupp is recognized by sports authorities with doing more than any other modem tutor to make basketball a national spectator sport. From the very outset of his career at Kentucky, which began in 1930,
1 1 he has introduced or popularized many new and revised trends in the game that have aided materially in making the country basketball-minded. One such innovation was the controlled fast break offensive pattern that has since become the crowd-pleasing trademark of Wildcat cage teams.
The outstanding success of this man as a basbetball coach is matched only by the personal fame he has attained outside the sports world.
The masterful story-teller is equally renowned on the banquet and coaching clinic circuit and is in constant demand as a speaker in the off season. He annually appears in more than a dozen states to make speaking engagements and believes he has missed only Alaska in tours throughout the 50 states. Rupp undoubtedly has conducted more coaching clinics than any other tutor. Overseas assignments for the Army and Air Force have taken him to the European theater, Hawaii and Japan.
Internationally recognized for his avocation as a registered Hereford breeder-enthusiast, Rupp is currently in his seventh term as president of the Kentucky Hereford Assn. He owns and operates one of the largest farms in the Bluegrass area and serves as a director of the Central District Warehousing Corp., world's largest tobacco marketing organization.
The coach is active in Shrine affairs, being chosen in 1950 as one of the 1 0 outstanding Shriners of the nation and holding honorary memberships in temples throughout the country. He is a Past Potentate of the Oleika (Lexington) Temple and serves as vice-chairman of the board for the Shrine Crippled Children's Hospital in Lexington. Two years ago, he was nominated as one of five candidates for the Imperial Outer Guard of the Shrine.
He has his own television and radio shows during the season, has produced two film shorts ("Basketball: Individual Offense" for Coca-Cola Co. and "Parade to National Championship") and written books on virtually every phase of the game.
Born in Halstead, Kansas, Sept. 2, 1901, Rupp attended University of Kansas where he played guard under Phog Allen. Following graduation in 1923, he coached high school ball one year at Marshall-town, Iowa, and then at Freeport, III., four seasons before coming to Kentucky in 1930. His fame as "The Man in the Brown Suit" stems from his superstitious preference of brown as the color of his game-night wardrobe.

Assistant Coach
When Harry Lancaster finds a spare moment to reflect on his days as an all-around star athlete at Georgetown (Ky.) College back in the early thirties, he can recall with a degree of dismay how close he came to never pursuing the "round ball" sport that in the days since has earned him a highly respected position in the basketball world.
An All-Conference halfback for three straight years and captain during his last two seasons, Lancaster's football career almost overshadowed his play on the basketball court. In the cage sport, he was equally successfulwith three All-Conference nominations and two team captaincies to his creditbut considered himself a better football player than eager. Experience, however, proved him a good student and teacher of the sport of basketball as he began his coaching career and he now has no regrets over the choice he made.
Lancaster bosses a promising group of yearling cagers and holds down the position of assistant varsity basketball coach and general right hand man to Adolph Rupp.
Born in Paris, Ky., in 1911, Lancaster attended Paris High School where he played four years in all sports, being coached at one time by Kentucky's current Head Football Coach Blanton Collier. Following graduation in 1928, he continued his athletic career at Georgetown College and gained star recognition in football, basketball and baseball. After finishing at Georgetown in '32, Harry remained on for the next school year as an assistant coach in both the grid and cage sports before moving into the high school field. He coached several sports, mostly basketball, for nine years and was a high school principal for six years before coming to the University of Kentucky in 1942 as an instructor in physical education.
14 Soon thereafter, the war intervened and Lancaster saw 26 months' Navy duty, rising from apprentice seaman to Lieutenant (Senior Grade). Returning to UK in March, 1946, he became a part-time assistant to the Wildcats' famous cage mentor, Adolph Rupp, in addition to carrying on his teaching duties and gaining his master's degree. He also served as Kentucky's baseball coach in 1946-47 and picked up the assignment again starting with the 1951 campaign.
He was promoted to full-time Assistant Varsity Basketball Coach in 1948 upon Coach Rupp's recommendation. In addition to his coaching duties, Lancaster manages to sandwich in a large slice of traveling. Besides checking on the nation's best high school cagers as potential material for future Wildcat national champion crews, his travel stems from a plan to extensively scout upcoming opponents. Coach Rupp was one of the first in the country to inaugurate this widespread scouting system in basketball and believes it has contributed materially to Kentucky's past success in carrying off championships with almost reckless abandon.
Lancaster also traveled to Greece in the summer of 1951 on a special athletic assignment for the U. S. State Department. The mission called for the Kentucky aide to act as an advisor to Greek Basketball Federation officials on Olympic procedure and other matters. He also conducted numerous clinics, coaching schools and gave public lectures on the cage sport as played in the U.S.A.
Lancaster's coaching success with his freshman teams has been commendable. The yearlings have lost only 18 contests under his tutelage the past ten seasons against formidable competition that included the more elite junior college clubs and top-notch service quintets.  His record stands at 100 wins, 18 losses.

Assistant Coach
Recognized as one of the nation's outstanding young coaches, 31-year-old Doug Hines joined the Kentucky staff last August after a highly successful career in high school coaching and at Lindsey
Wilson Junior College, in Columbia, Kentucky.
In his new position, Hines will assist Head Coach Adolph Rupp by working with both the freshman and varsity teams, doing scouting and recruiting, and supervising the study program of the entire basketball squad.
Born in Science Hill, Ky., Hines graduated from high school there in 1947. He received his baccalaureate degree from Eastern Kentucky State college in 1953 after work there and and at Lindsey Wilson Junior College. The master's degree was awarded by Eastern two years later and he expects to receive his Ph.D. degree from Indiana University in the next few months.
The youthful coach began his professional career in 1954 at Crab Orchard High School in Lincoln County and posted a 54-22 record for three years. He moved over to Lindsey Wilson in 1957 and during his four seasons there he became recognized as one of the nation's outstanding junior college mentors. His over-all record there shows 85 victories in 126 starts and a Kentucky Junior College Conference mark of 43-1 1.
In three of the four seasons he was at Lindsey Wilson, Hines led his team to the conference seasonal title and a year ago took fourth place in the National Junior College Tournament. The 1959-60 Blue Raiders showed a 32-8 record, one of their setbacks coming at the hands of the Kentucky freshmen.
Hines produced no less than a dozen players at Lindsey Wilson who have been outstanding enough to gain full basketball scholarships at four-year schools.  Kentucky grabbed off Bennie Coff-
16 man, a 6-0 guard who was the KJCC leading scorer three seasons back, and this year signed another guard, Doug Pendygraft, who also led the league in scoring and attained JC All-America honors.
TED LENHARDT Assistant in Basketball
Newest aide on the cage staff of Baron Rupp is a Michigander, 28-year-old Ted Lenhardt.   Appointed last summer with the title of ^^^^ Assistant in  Basketball, he brings to the
^(HOJHk staff experience of two seasons in the high
B:r;'JBP^^\ school coaching field in his hometown of
* Coloma, Mich.   Lenhardt's teams posted a
23-12 record in two years. He graduated in 1 958 from Western Michigan State College where he played forward for two seasons before an injury sidelined him. At Kentucky, Lenhardt will assist in coaching the freshman team and perform other functions in a part-time capacity while working on his master's degree.

The safest way to phrase Kentucky basketball prospects any year is to say: "Don't sell Baron Rupp's Wildcats short!"
Perhaps more than ever before, that admonition may hold true in describing the outlook for the 1960-61 campaign. The famed and colorful Baron of the Blue Grass, basketball's winningest mentor, has spent a year on the sidelines looking into the throne room and is chafing at the bit to get his Kentuckians back in the national limelight.
Adversity, in the form of injuries, sickness and ineligibility, plagued the Wildcats all last season with the result that they were saddled with an 1 8-7 record that stood as the second poorest season ever in Rupp's 30-year Kentucky dynasty. And anyone v/ho knows the Baron and is cognizant of Kentucky's winning habits in basketball should realize that both Rupp and his men are determined to "get back in business."
While the Kentucky quintet of last season was universally recognized as one of the nation's strongest when at full physical strength and losses were not too severe, prospects for the coming season might not be considered good except for the anticipated boost to be given by a pair of junior college All-America transfers.
The new faces Rupp is counting on heavily to put Kentucky back into contention for the Southeastern Conference title (which they have held 19 times but missed the past two seasons) and an unprecedented fifth NCAA championship are Vince Del Negro, 6-51/2 center-forward from Northeast Mississippi J.C., and Doug Pendygraft, sharpshooting 6-3 guard of Kentucky's Lindsey Wilson J.C. Del Negro, a two-year All-American, has been the nation's leading junior college scorer in his first two campaigns while Pendygraft picked up Most Valuable Player honors in the National J.C. Tournament last season and set many new scoring records in tournament and All-Star play.
Kentucky opponents also look with considerable apprehension on the retrun to top physical condition of the Wildcats' All-America candidate, Bill Lickert. The versatile, 6-3 forward-guard repeated as an official All-Southeastern choice last season despite being incapacitated nearly a month in mid-season with calcification of a thigh muscle that required surgery. As a sophomore in 1958-59, Lickert had gained SEC Sophomore of the Year recognition and last season seemed to be
18 on his way to an even greater year as indicated by a 29-point
