Over 20 miles of 16mm motion picture film
will be processed to produce this year's football
films in the Photographic Production Laboratory
in West Stadium.
Two miles of football film per week, however,
is only part of the story. These movies tie into
an important development In educational films
where intercollegiate athletics and education walk
hand in hand.
A chartered plane carrying Kax Tada, Jack
RIggle and Jake Geier. had taken off for Law
rence at 9 a.m. Saturday. Richmond Lawrence
had gone ahead with the team on Friday. The
photographers, with their film, were back in
Lincoln at 6:30 p.m. and the negative film was
processed that night
Editors J. D. Allred, Arlene Stetina and Kay
Tada started work at 8 a.m. on Sunday and by
8 p.m. Sunday two complete work prints of the
game had been made. Geier and Lawrence had
finished a narration and sound engineer Ralph
Sogge had completed 1600 feet of optical sound
On Monday the production crew of ten per
sons completed processing, editing and sounding
and the film was ready for showing to a crowd
of 600 persons in the Coliseum at 7:30 p.m. Fom
there prints went on to circuits of high schools,
service clubs, quarterback groups, and television
showings over WOWTV and KMTV.
Films on home games are produced even
more quickly. Before the game is at the half
time, the first quarter film has been processed

Following the Missouri game two weeks ago,
Missouri coach Don Faurot took a copy of Ne
braska's game pictures with him before he left
Lincoln that evening.
Important as the football films are to Ne
braska's Huskers; production of the football films
is not the final objective of this organization ac
cording to Wendell L. Hoffman, head of the Photo
graphic Production Laboratory.
"The football films are a means to an end, not
an end in themselves," said Hoffman, who gives
Athletic Director George (Potsy) Clark and Coach
Bill Glassford credit for much financial backing
of the motion picture development. "They were
willing to gamble that we could make our home
made equipment work until we could get some
thing better. Even in the beginning they caught a
vision of what educational films and television
could mean for Nebrtska."
Photographic productions are made up of a
number of sections Including still photography,
motion pictures, an art department and a multi
lith offset printing plate section.
"Objectives of the motion picture develop
ment have been two-fold," said Hoffman:
1. Production of educational films at prices
which University departments can afford.
2. An organization capable of meeting t ie
time schedules of television.
"We are particularly interested in serving Ne
braska agriculture with timely information on
film. We want to be able to put a copy of im
portant films into the hands of every county agent,
and at a cost which the state can afford," said

are located in Canada, Puerto

United States. There are affiliated
clubs in Great Britain and Aus
tralia. During the year 1951-1952,
the Optimists contacted nearly
half a million boys of all ages
and spent fifteen million dollars
in youth work. And that is a
lot of optimism. The auxiliary
women's group, the Optimisses,
carries on the same work with
girls, but on a smaller scale.
Optimism provides the way for
boys to enter the college of their
choice through competition in the
Optimist's oratory contest. Mem
