It's hard to play football for a student
If you're a football player, one minute you
may be the most popular man on campus.
Ten seconds later you fumble the ball and
If you're, a football team, you're appreciated
only as long as you win games or lose by
considerably smaller margins than predicted.
If you're a coach, every defeat is laid at
your shoes, but every win passes as just a
matter of course. If your team has a par
ticularly bad day or a weak season, you may
, see your name smeared around campus.
It's hard to play foottall for a student body.
And it's just as hard to play for the O
', Take the case of one of the players who
' works down town. Everyday a half dozen
persons ask, partly in jest but mostly in ser
iousness, "Well, Joe, you ever going to win

Cheerleaders had rounded up a fairly sizeable
group to meet the Huskers at the station
estimated some place between 50 and 150
persons, The next day a local newspaper re
ported that "only 50 students" were on hand
to cheer the team. "What type of Cornhusker
spirit does such reporting generate?
During a slow-starting season its easy to
lapse into the old cliche, "It doesn't matter
whether you win or lose; it's how you played
the. game," or into the oft-heard statement,
I just hope we can manage to live through
those long Saturday afternoons.'
You'd think the Huskers didnt know how
to wear shoulder pads.
The Varsity can play football and it has
en two occasions. Its performances against
Illinois and Pittsburgh were outstanding aft
ernoons of football for any team.
We have nothing to be ashamed of in our
team. We are not consigned to "long Satur

Beings From Space
Chalk one up for the devotees of Science
- Flying saucers are once again under dis
cussion. Ketired Marine Major Don Keyhoe, in a re
cent book, entertains the possibility that sau
cers are real and that some attempt to con
ceal the facts about then is being maintained.
' His thesis, in spite of official U.S. -Mr
Force opinion to the contrary, is that the un
solved and unexplained sightings are evi
dence that extraterrestial beings are conduct
ing a surveilance of the earth.
Let's suppose that con-earth bound beings
were watching us?
What would they see?
Looking at the XU campus, they might
vender at the abundance of so-called queens;
a "one-hit" charity drive which includes both
a pre-drive and a follow up drive, and a
faculty committee which spent 3 years trying
to revise the numbering cf courses, only to
report that the task was too involved.
They'd notice the city of Lincoln with
yearning for a city auditorium but unable to
build it beacuse of lack of agreement for a

the affairs cf the Stat? cf Nebraska, they
frpijld probably ponder over the fact that
everyone is for an equitable tax assessment,
yet if it means raising one's own assessment
it's a different story.
If our beings were not discouraged by this
time and decided to view the national scene,
they might find any number of paradoxes and
discordant concepts. In fact, they would
probably become confused themselves trying
to figure out all the confusion.
For the clincher, the extraterrestial beings
could take a look at the world situation.
What they witnessed would probably con
vince them that earthmen were beyond hope.
After their quick survey, the visitors from
space would no doubt conclude that "they
never had it so good," and return to their

It hurts us to say this but the Student
Council is on the ball.
At least in one matter.
Last year a member of the Council, elected
from the College of Arts and Sciences, served
a full term despite the fact that he had en

arose. An arts college representative entered

The team has demonstrated that it posses
ses the techniques for achieving victory. But
what about the spirit?
In both the squad and the student body we
need to generate the psychology of victory.
It is in part a frame of mind. Victory must
seem possible.. Victory must seem desirable.
Victory must seem all-important
It is time for the team and the student
body to get the scent of victory in their nos

impossible to play first-rate football week

We've got to approach the Miami game in

spirit contagious for the team.

The latest proposal from Washington, an

to grant immunity to a witness who takes

The effect of such a .law, .according to
Brownell, wood allow a second-rate Commu
nist, or fellow traveler, to be granted immun
ity from prosecution if he spilled the goods
on top-notch Communists.
Perhaps the goal is honorable. Undoubt
edly we would prefer to uncover the import
ant subversive leaders than no one at all, or
at best second-rate Communists.
But who knows who is a No. 1 Communist
and who is a No. 13 Communist? Suppose
a self -described "No. 13" Communist should,
after being granted immunity from prosecu
tion, turn cut to be the leader of an inter- "
national atomic spy ring. If he confessed
these sins to the investigating committee
under immunity he could not be prosecuted.
Of course, the attorney general would im
mediately answer that one of his jobs is to
determine who should be granted immunity
and who should not, thus implying that he
knows who the important Communists are.
Bat does he? Obviously not, since the pur
pose of such a prosecution-free investigation
would be to uncover these very persons.
The administration appears to be playing
with fire in this new suggestion. The entire
judicial system of the nation conceivably
might be jarred by the powerful device of administratively-granted

to determine which movie they

going to be disappointed this
week. If you read it for just

I didn't see a movie in Lin

there are tfro good ones you can

I assume. Go ahead and see
The movie I'd like to talk
about this week is "Story of
Three Loves." I missed this
when it was in Lincoln. An
Omaha theater played it last
week, so I went up to see it. I
was interested in seeing the
movie for two reasons. 1. Sev
eral people I consider having
opinions closely akin to mine
liked it, and 2. I tried to buy
the "Variations on a Theme by
Paganini" by Rachmaninoff,
which is used as a background
music in the film. All the music
stores had sold out and quickly
reordered more albums.

me. Why should copies of
Rachmaninoff's Variations gather
dust in the music house for
years, then all of a sudden sell
out because ot a movie using it
as background music?
Well, frankly, after seeing the
movie I don't know why the
public would rush down and buy
the music. The movie was su
perb. The music was likewise
done well. But still I don't
know why the appeal was so
great. When the movie "The.
Outlaw" came out, I don't re
member a rush on music stores
for "Tschaikowsky's 6th Sym
phony" which was the back
jrround music for that Howard
Hughes expose of Jane Russell.
There's no doubt about it.
"ory of Three Loves" was an
unusually entertaining picture.
I'd drive to Omaha to see it
again. But if you can figure
out why the music from it is so
popular hurry out to Holly
wood and tell them your for
mula they'll pay you millions.

tight because of TV).

In the column which was not
published last Friday I had de
voted most of the space to an
analvsis of coaching in general
at the University of Nebraska.
My main point was in essence
this: Athletic teams need for a
coach a man who takes a sin
cere interest in his players so
that they want to play and en
joy the game. A top sergeant
does not fit the needs of bigtime
football or other sports.
Nebraska athletics will be suc
cessful when the coaches can
make the game enjoyable for the
players, and when the players
want to play for their school and

The world's most famous towers are, left to
right, the Eiffel Tower, the Tower of London
and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
But in America, the tower-come-lately (ex
treme right) may rapidly become as familiar
as the old landmarks of Europe. It is one of
the Bell System's radio-relay stations which
speed telephone calls and television programs
coast to coast
In May, 1943, these towers connected only
five Eastern cities. Five years later, the TV
network included 93 towns and more are being
added all the time.
Being the first network of its kind in the
world, the pkoning, research, engineering
and construction requirements are providing
real opportunities for the kind of people who
like to pioneer.
