Saturday the 1947 Cornhusker team will take the field
for the first time.
The Huskers open against highly-touted, heavily-praised
Indiana. But Nebraska teams have never been beaten by dis
couraging press notices. And they won't be tomorrow! This
squad is ready to play football. And they'll play a lot of it
before the result goes into the records!
The only question is how

much support will they get from
those east . stands while they
fight? Will these '47 Huskers
make their effort for a "fair
weather" crowd? Or will they get
the sort of inspiring support that
made past Husker teams unbeat
able on Memorial Stadium soil?
Can Be Done
Will you give them the kind of
helping hand that led other Ne
braska teams to "impossible"
feats and upsets? We think you
will! We think Nebraska spirit
has never been higher! No one
has illusions about the task. But
no one will admit it CAN'T be
Ordinarily, you get a chance
to show your colors at an open
ing rally. But Friday is All-University
Church night. For this
reason no football rally can be
held before kick-off tomorrow.
But that doesn't mean you'll
have no chance to let the team
know just where you stand! The
"rally is, after all, only a pre
liminary. You don't need that to
fan your spirit and enthusiasm!
We think it's strong enough to
When the Cornhusker players
first come on the field, we think
they'll be greeted with a recep
tion that will leave no doubt. We
think that famous Cornhusker
spirit will roll out of those east
stands all afternoon! We think it
will be so genuine that every man
on the field will feel its contagion!
The stadium wil show Nebras
ka's spirit. Cornhuskers will be
out in full color red sweaters
and skirts, red feathers and chrys
anthemums. Cornhusker yells will
shake those east stands. When the
going gets rough, Huskers will dig
in with plenty of vocal backing.
Anyone can sit in the stands
and cheer touchdowns. It takes
that famous Husker spirit to
show which side you're on when
the going gets tough.

When toe meets leather at 2:00 p. m. in Nebraska's Me
morial Stadium Saturday, the curtain will be officially
opened on the Huskers 1947 grid campaign.
Coach Bemie Masterson, hopeful of stopping the win
ning ways of Bo McMillin's Indian Hoosiers, has put his
Scarlet and Cream footballers through a gruelling week of
practice in preparation for the
Fearful of injuries prior to the
initial test, Masterson has removed
contact work from his practice
routine this week. Instead the
"T" master has drilled his backs
on pass defense and his linemen
on blocking assignments.
Although the touted Ben Rai
mondi, who heaved the Hoosiers
to a 27-7 decision over the Husk
ers in Memorial Stadium last
year, is not in McMillin's back
field, Nebraska still respects the
Indianan's air game. With such
pass grabbers as Lou Mihajlovich
and Bob Ravensberg on hand, the
Nebraska backficld will be cov
ering every corner of the stadium
turf to shackle the Hoosicr's
But the airways will by no
means constitute the only serious
Indiana threat. With George Tal
iaferro, sensational f reshman star
in 1945, back in the Hoosier camp
after a hitch in the service, Ne
braska's burly forwards will get
a supreme testing.
Masterson and company will be
counting on the slippery running
of CletusTischer and the break
away dashing of Dirk Hutton to
skip around the Hoosier forward
wall. Dale Adams will be counted
on to test the strength of the mid
dle of McMillin's line.
Should the Husker's "T" sput
ter on the ground, Masterson may
surprise with a strong aerial at
tack. Little Del Wieand has been
grooming his right arm all week
and may be' filling the air with
pigskins more than the Hoosiers
may like. Joe Partington will also
be counted on to toss the leather
