from the Big Six, was favored by

It is of interest to note that
205 of the individual ballots were
yes on all three questions. The
organized houses, representing the
largest category of returns, were
very slightly opposed to question
II, withdrawing from the Big Six.
It is evident that two main
groups returned the ballots, those
interested in pushing the proposal,
and the organized houses includ
ing fraternities, sororities, co-operatives,
and the smaller women's
residence halls. .
Pending final returns in the
Daily Nebraskan vote on Big Six
racial discrimination, a personal
opinion survey was conducted on
the campus Thursday afternoon.
Two hundred and two students
were interviewed by reporters
using the questions on the poll

Fischer Scores.
After a scorless first period the
Huskers' Cletus Fischer brought
cheering Nebraska rooters to their
feet with a sixty-two yard pass
interception that shot the Scarlet
and Cream into a 6-0 lead. Fischer
grabbed a pass thrown by Darrell
Royal, Sooner halfback, on his
own 38, raced up the East side
lines, shook off four or five tack-
lers and with aid of a timely block
by End Jack Pesek, raced over for
the score. The vital kick for the
extra point went wide. Until tKe
interception the Sooners had
shown lots of power but the Husk
ers had managed to hold their own,
forcing the punting toe of Darrell
Royal into action. Royals first
boot went out of bounds on the
Nebraska 13 but was nullified by a
backfield in motion penalty on the
Sooners. His second attempt was
blocked by Charlie Toogood, bur
ley Husker tackle and the Husk
ers took over on the Oklahoma 36.
After Adams gained thru through
the center big John Rapacz inter
cepted a pass by Dick Thompson
on the visitors 36 to end the
After the first Husker score the
Oklahomans came right back
down the field on a 73-yard march
to tie. With George Brewer, Char
lie Sarratt, Jack Mitchell, and
George Thomas in the saddle the
Sooners put on the strongest of
fensive drive of the game which
was climaxed by Thomas' four
yard plunge for the touchdown.
Sarratt contributed a nifty thirty
yard end run that accounted for
a good share of the distance. Dave
Wallace's kick for the extra point
gave the Sooners a 7-6 advantage
which they held until half-time.
