audience Oct. 16 in the Temple

dian Summer," and "The Lovely
Miracle," were all under student
direction and were effectively
' The most appreciated was "The
Lovely Miracle," a fantasy by
Phillip Johnson, which starred
Betty Laird and Jack McDonald.
Miss Laird, portraying a con
fused country girl on the night
before her wedding, and Mr. Mc
Donald as the amiable product
of her imagination who soolhv
her troubled mind, both showed
fine stage presence.
Supporting in the roles of the
mother ana neighbor, respective
ly, Charlotte Wilson and Mary
Francis Nelson amused the audi

We're having a rally tomor
row morning a rally to top all
rallies, including the Rose Bowl
celebration. The Chancellor will
be there to greet HIS team, the
Corn Cobs and Tassels will be
there to greet THEIR team . . .
how about you, will you be there
to greet YOUR team?
Although the administration
found it impossible to dismiss
classes and declare a rally holi
day from 9 to 10 a. m. tomorrow
there are a few thousand stu
dents who don't have nine
o'clocks and at least a few hun
dred more who could take one
of those "three cuts per course"
to greet a great Htisker football
team and a great Coach.
TO THE STUDENTS: The Rag
has taken the job of promoting
this rally because the entire staff
listened to a mighty good foot
ball team play a game that won't
be forgotten soon. The past
week papers all over the state
have tossed columnized remarks
around about the student's school
spirit at N.U. It isn't dead as
they claim, it's here so give the
great sports moguls some rally
attendance figures to really talk
about. Not in the hundreds, but
in the thousands. In other words
be there and blow the top off
the station with the noise!
TO THE FACULTY: Have a
heart and be a little human for
once . . . don't forget this is your
team too. The Rag wonders if
you actually have any school
spirit. You've got a good chance
to prove it tomorrow and just
for size, why don't you come
to the rally too? How do you
know, you might like it!
TO EVERYBODY: You gave
a swell demonstration Thursday
night, but now let's out-do our
selves. Bernie, Tom, Cletus and
Freddie all promised to play a
real game and they did just that.
Remember we said we were be
hind them. They lived up to
their half, now it's up to us. Be
there and prove that support
