What is Cornhusker spirit?
For many years we have heard of the Cornhusker
spirit of days gone by and how it was known the nation
over. We were told of numerous episodes of school loyalty
and tne synonymous use
and "spirit." It was always, "School spirit reaches its peak
When we arrived at the University three years ago,
we came with the typical enthusiasm of high school seniors.
But more important we also had the feeling of wanting
to be a part ot that cornhusker spirit.
We were sadly disappointed in the years that followed,
For as far as we could determine the Cornhusker spirit
, we naa neara so mucn about was apparently lacking. Our
imaginative thoughts of shouting students and tremendous
rallies were not converted to realism on the campus. There
just wasn't proof for all the stories we had listened to so
Then we began to wonder what Cornhusker spirit is.
What is the intangible Something that presents itself on
and off the football field? What motivates 2,000 people
to trek to Minnesota, 3,000 to Colorado and 5,000 to Kan-
- o Tirv.i. . i i iittt , ... . ....
sas; vYnat mases peopie say, - wait until next week, in
stead of, "Well, we lost again." What places the prospects
of Nebraska football in the conversation of everyone?
What gives the feeling of belonging to a good University?
We still do not know the answers to these questions.
We cannot point directly to one or two things and label
them as Cornhusker spirit. . It is a multitude of factors
blended together and each contributing its full share.
. Whatever it is, everyone of us is experiencing its
revival But actually the spirit of this University never
disappeared completely. For manv war and cost-war
years it nas lam dormant ana untouched. It has taken
the combined efforts of a winning team, outstanding play
ers like Bobby Reynolds and a respected and capable man
namea rsiu jiassiora to awanen the spirit known to Corn
huskers ten years ago.
What is Cornhusker spirit? We don't know. But we
. are extremely proud that we are a part of it.

Since 1928. the bell has been
presented to the winner of the
Nebraska-Missouri football game.
Since Missouri won the bell with
a 7-6 victory in 1927, Nebraska
has won the beE 11 times, while
Missouri has taken possession 10
times and the Huskers retained
the bell on two occasions because
of a tie.
Nebraska has gained possession
of the bell only once since the
Rose Bowl-bound 1940 team de
feated Missouri. That was in 1944,
when the Cornhuskers upset the

taken from a country church near
Seward. Others say that it was
the bell which hung in the old
University hall. Still others in
sist that it was taken from a
boarding house which used the
bell to call it tenants to meals.
At any tate. the bell was a
source of conflict between the
fraternities for more than 30
years. One or other of the two
groups would forcibly take pos
session of the bell periodically.
In the spring of 1928. the two
groups staged a hand to hand
fight in a local hotel for the bell.
Suggestion by Schulte
Henry F. Schulte, track coach
at Nebraska, and formerly a
coach at Missouri, saw in the bell
a possible symbol of football riv
alry between the two big seven
opponents. He suggested the mat
ter to the Innocents society, who
agreed to sponsor presentation of
The motto, "Tiger-Huskers,
who win or lose gloriously," was
inscribed on a plaque and placed
on the bell. The bell itself rests
on an oak platform, which has
the final score of every Nebraska-Missouri
game since 1927
carved on it.
Fritz Daly, Secretary of the
Nebraska Alumni association and
at that time president of the In
nocents, presented the bell to
Frank Knight, president of the
Missouri student body federation,
on Oct. 27, 1928 to begin the riv
alry. The Missouri and Nebraska
captains shook hands over the
bell before the game began. After
the game had ended in a 24-0
Cornhusker victory, the Missouri
captain carried the bell over to
the Nebraska team.
A rope was attached to the
clapper to allow it to be rung. It
was rung loudly at the first pre
sentation in 1928. Bob Raun,
president of the Innocents society
will make this year's presenta
tion of the bell to representatives
of the Missouri student body.
This will be in recognition of
Missouri's 21-20 win over the
Cornhuskers in 1949.
The bell will be presented Im
mediately before the game, fol

A number of smaller replicas
of the bell have been made and

Campus Cop Reminisces
From dashing cow-hand to

One of the
reasons that KNU is going over
so big is the Friday show "FOOT
BALL REVIEWS." Reviews is
co-authored, produced, and nar
rated by Dick Root and Clarence
Wundinger. The program is a
good one for the parley card
players to listen to since -Dick
and "Clar" predict eight foot
ball scores of the week. Usually
the predictions are for Big Sev
en games, in addition to other
outstanding games of the week.
To date the men are riding on
the high average of .816. "Re
views" also give the probable
starting line-ups for all the Ne
braska games, and also the
starters for the opposition. To
show the football team that their
feats do not go unnoticed, Dick
features a story of the player
of the week. Also, to show that
the teams that the Huskers have
not been push overs, the men
give the statistics of the oppon
ents of the previous game. So
that the program is not all chat
ter, "Football Reviews" plays a
University fight song. If you like
