OFFICIAL SIGNALS
5 Backing the Wildcats
GOVERNOR A. B. CHANDLER, long-time friend of education throughout the Commonwealth and supporter of the University of Kentucky, is widely known and highly respected on both state and national levels. Perhaps he is best known to the sports-loving public, however, as the former Commissioner of Baseball. He is an enthusiastic sports fan and has been attending Wildcat athletic events for nearly 40 years.
?
PRESIDENT FRANK DICKEY, who became the University of Kentucky's seventh chief executive in 1956, is an outstanding educator and avid follower of UK sports. With an interest dating back to days as a director of intramurals for a junior high school, Dr. Dickey strongly favors the continuance of University athletics on their present high level and in balance with the institution's academic program.
ATHLETIC DIRECTOR BERNIE SHIVELY, a former All America footballer at Illinois, is the guiding hand behind the development of UK as a nationally-respected power in the field of inter-collegiate athletics. Serving in a variety of posts at the University since 1927, including terms as coach of football, track and baseball, "Shive" has been Director of Athletics since 1938. ST

Away ADOLPH FREDERICK RUPPFor nearly three decades, the sports world has watched an amazing record being forged with near perfection out 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 28 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 584 victories out of 687 starts against many of the nation's top twenty basketball powers of the past quarter-century for an unmatched winning average of better than 85 percent. An unparelleled honor roll of four NCAA Tournament national championships, including last season's surprise triumph by the "Fiddlin' Five." Nineteen  Southeastern  Conference titles
since the league was organized in 1933. A National Invitational Tournament championship in 1946 that makes Rupp the only mentor to guide a team to four national
tourney titles in six years. Olympic Trials collegiate bracket laurels in 1948.
A nominal world's championship as co-coach of the successful USA entry in the 1948 Olympic Games, which included members of the NCAA champion Kentucky team.
Four Sugar Bowl Tournament championships.
Three titles from the first five U.K. Invitational Tournaments featuring the cream of national cage powers.
Development of more All-Americans (20) and more material for the pro ranks (17) than any other tutor.
Election to the Helms Athletic Foundation College Basketball Hall of fame in 1946 and selection as national "Coach of the Year" in 1950.
Recipient of first plaque of appreciation awarded by Sugar Bowl committee (1951) and twice made honorary citizen City of New Orleans.
Election to Kentucky Hall of Fame (1945) and as outstanding citizen of Lexington (1949).
Tournament invitations in pre-Rupp years were almost unheard ofKentucky played in only seven sectional eliminations. In contrast, the Rupp-led Wildcats have the distinction of not only playing in more tournaments of all types than any other team but also hold the record for most appearances (1 0), most games won (20) and most championships (4) in NCAA Tournament play. All told, his Bluegrass five has achieved the unequalled feat of 128 victories against only 33 defeats covering action in 30 national classics plus 29 conference meets and the '48 Olympics.
10 SUCCESSORS TO CHAMPIONSUniversity of Kentucky's entry in 1958-59 cage sweepstakes as successors to the National Champion ship Wildcats of last season includes (front row) Coach Adolph Rupp, Bill Lickert, Sid Cohen, Al Robinson, Johnny Cox, Dick Parsons, Bennie Coffman, Asst. Coach Harry Lancaster and back row) Student Manager Jay Atkerson, Bobby Slusher, Phil Johnson, Ned Jennings, Don Mills, Carroll Burchett, Howard Dardeen and Trainer Sam Pressman.   Not present when the picture was taken was Lowell Hughes who joined the team after the football season.

OUTLOOKLike all too many other SEC outfits, Tennessee's losses were very lightonly Leon Ammerman departed from the starting lineupand added experience plus good height and talent among newcomers adds up to greater toughness in '59. Coach Lowery should have experience that was lacking last season and good balance in lineup, but lacks the obvious hot shooter. Big man is 6-7 All-SEC center Gene Tormohlen. Should rank near top in title picture. Game to be televised nationally by NBC and will mark Kentucky's third and final appearance of the season on the "Game of the Week" series.

18 19  HARRY LANCASTER, Freshman Coach, Assistant Varsity CoachWhen 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 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.
Lancaster bosses a promising group of yearling cagers and holds down the position of assistant varsity basketball coach and general right hand man to the fabulous Adolph Rupp. He was made a full-time assistant by Coach Rupp in 1948. Born in Paris, Ky., Lancaster attended Paris High School, participating for four years in all sports.

A 22-year-old veteran with an enthusiastic love
of the Kentucky style of basketball based on his playing days as a Wildcat is the newest UK cage coach. He is a   son   of   Kentucky s
ffamous Governor, and it
he prefers to think more about his basketball future than his political heritage. Dan has a solid background

termined to make his
own way as a teacher of the game. The small and scrappy former Wildcat guard spent three seasons here before going in the service where he got his first taste of coaching. Chandler replaces Bill Wireman as assistant freshman mentor and also will handle some scouting and recruiting assignments.
22 University of Kentucky, Lexington  Coach Adolph Rupp says, "At Kentucky I specified that Seal-O-San must be used. I've recommended it many times to other coaches."
Murray State College, Murray  Coach Rex Alexander says, "Seal-O-San provides good traction and a lasting finish to our gym floor. It's easy to keep clean, too."
Western Kentucky State College, Bowling Green  "I have been using Seal-O-San since I started coaching here thirty-six years ago," say Coach E. A. Diddle.

Morehead State College, Morehead  Head coach Bob Laughlin says, "I found that Seal-O-San keeps our floors looking good and makes a safe, nonslippery surface."
Eastern Kentucky State College, Richmond  "Seal-O-San does a wonderful job in improving the appearance of a court, as well as protecting it," says Paul S. McBrayer.
Read why these five Kentucky schools use Seal-O-San.
Hundreds of coaches and school officials in Kentucky and all over the country prefer Seal-O-San gym floor finish. It provides a nonslippery surface that is durable and glare-free. It is easy to care for and reduces maintenance costs. Most important, Seal-O-San is resilient enough to give a player's foot the "extra spring" needed for fast action. Specify Seal-O-San the next time you refinish your gym floor. Write today for more information.

25 Only a little more than a quarter century ago, the University of Kentucky provided its basketball team with its second homea magnificent new Alumni Gymnasium seating 2,800 spectators.
A great many persons freely suggested that the arena would prove to be a "white elephant" which would never be crowded to anywhere near capacity by the sport that then was considered little more than an innocuous winter-months' pastime.
But the hardwood game blitzed the nation and Kentucky teams forged to the national forefront in such a crowd-pleasing manner that the "huge" hall soon could not begin to accommodate the large number of fans seeking to whet their newfound interest. In fact, the situation soon developed to the point where only the student body and faculty were admitted and for several years about all that Kentuckians at large knew of their state university's famed cage teams consisted of information gleaned from the press and radio.
In 1941, when Dr. H. L. Donovan became president of the University, one   of   his first
recommendatiors was for a building "that will properly take care of our athletics, our health service, physical education, and recreation." From this beginning came the plan that culminated in the construction of 1 1,500-seat Memorial Coliseum, an unparalleled edifice costing S3,925,000 by fhe time it was completed in 1950.
The huge building, which serves as a memorial to the nearly 10,000 Kentucky heroes who lost their lives in World War II and the Korean conflict, covers an entire city block and contains as much space as a seven-story office building. Situated along Avenue of Champions, the Coliseum is used primarily for basketball games but also serves as the site of a sellout community concert and lecture series as well as numerous physical education classes and conventions.
In sharp contrast to the early days in Alumni Gym, the present hall plays host to more than 100,000 Kentuckians annually for appearances of the famous Wildcat cage teams alone and interest is increasing with such strides that even this splendid arena may soon be outgrown.
