You're a Conhusker . .
Tomorrow shortly after noon, rain or shine, Bernie
Masterson will take his first steps in a new pair of shoes.
Not shoes exactly, but Seven League boots, boots, boots
that will take a lot of filling. Half a hundred grid-clad
Huskers have promised to fill the toes of those boots and
take the brunt of the wear and tear. Several thousand
LOYAL Cornhuskers are needed to strengthen the sup
ports and keep the pigskin leather oiled, to insure against
The path those boots must travel is a rugged thor
oughfare, crevassed by such potent foes as Indiana, Min
nesota, Notre Dame and Oregon State ... to name only a
few. There's a lot of winning to be done and there may
be a lot of losing to be done, the answer is not yet his
tory. Regardless of the record that will be posted for
posterity's sake December 1, there WILL be a lot of play
ing to be done.
Consequently t it's time the student body and pro
verbial John Q. begin to shoulder their share of the load
and play their part of the game. School spirit isn't neces
sary exemplified by the loudest yelling that can be mus
tered nor the clanging of an overworked cow bell . . . it's
also something that must be felt! A glimpse of a Husker
history gives valid proof that such a feeling has long been
a vital part of any Cornhusker worthy of the name.
Headlines in newspaper files screamed the spirit of
the school that half a decade ago followed to the famed
sod of the Rose Bowl; that a quarter of a century ago sent
the Four Horsemen back to South Bend a meek quartet
of ponies; that has supplied the conference with 50 per
cent of their coaches. The same school that permanently
etched a scarlet and cream border on the very words "Big
To you Bernie, the Rag staff pledges a win, lose or
draw spirit, a spirit that makes a Cornhusker and makes
a Cornhusker team a sixty minute threat. The same spirit
that lifts you to your feet at the kick-off and brings you
to your feet again in tribute as the team leaves the field.
To you the team, our team, we pledge a hell n" high
A spirit that should not fluctuate with the rise and fall
of team fortunes.
To you the student body, the real Cornhuskers of to
day, we ask this question.
ARE YOU A CORNHUSKER or a fifty-nine minute
The first test looms tomorrow.
Traditional Nebraska ' songs,
chants and yells will be a fea
tured part of the halftime fes
tivities at Saturday's Hoosier
Husker game, Yell King Martin
Pesek said Thursday.
One of the oldest traditions on
campus is the Cornhusker Chant.
Beginning with the Indiana
game and at every subsequent
game the yell squad will lead
the chant, which runs as follows:
(Chant, while the band play -U-Kah,
(Yell, the band atlent)
Go! Gang! Go!
Hall for the mlKhty team who fight to
win for the Scarlet and Cream;
For Varsity and Victory.
The mlKht men who wear the "If till
hold the key.
Halt the stalwart foes:
Keep up the fight 'till the final whiatle
Huskers cheer for the Huskers to
cinch the game and ralae their fame
The victory way.
The Manila will away, the band will play.
So carry on, we want to win today.
Hail to the team,
The utadlum ringa at everyone ilngs the
Scarlet and Cream,
Cheera for a victory
Echo our loyalty:
So on, mighty men
The eyea of the land, Upon tv'ry band,
re looking at you.
Fight on for victory
Hall the men of Nebraska tl.
Come a-runnin' boys.
Don't you hear that noise
I.Ike the thunder In the aky.
How it rolls along
In the good old song,
For the songs of Ne-bras-kl.
Now It'a coming near
With a rising cheer
That will sweep all foci away.
So with all our vim
We are bound to win
And we're going to wia today-
For Nebraska and the Scarlet
For Nebraska and the Cream
Tho' they go through many a battle
Our colors still are seen.
So In contest and in victory
We will wave them for the team
And 'twill always stir a Cornhusker
The old Scarlet and the Cream.
New Yells are:
1. You Red Huskers,
You red Huskers,
You red Huskers,
Fight! Fight! Fight!
2. Let It rip.
Let It roar.
Let It go once more,
Hit the Hooiiers!
