It's really sort of silly.
All this talk about Glassford ... the game Saturday ... the
apathy of the fans ... the sluggishness of the players ... the myriad
of reasons for the defeat ... the concern over the "disintegration of
the Husker- football machine" . . . the general incompetency of the

A psychologist would say it was "typical hys
terical behavior identified with the mass." A sports
writer gleefully terms it "good copy." A professor
would call it "damn foolishness." '

But, acutally, all this chatter does have some
I say It has replaced the hiccoughs as the
"great leveler" in Nebraska.
Until now, it used to be that everyone, whether
he greased the politicians' rubberstamp or patched
thatched huts, would some timei or other contract hiccoughs.
Now most everyone would be perfectly glad to admit that he
knows nothing about the trouble in the Balkans, the Smoot-Hawley
tariff act of 1920 or submarine racing, but I have yet to meet a man
or woman who does not claim to cure hiccoughs.
The most retiring fellow I know (I must confess most of my friends,
however, are rather loud and boisterous) becomes impossibly obnox
ious in the presence of someone who has the hiccoughs.
"C'mon now," he says, nudging youx arrogantly in the abdomen,
"lay your head on your right knee and tap it lightly against the cap
as you drink from a glass of water on the left side of your mouth."
As my system seems to be especially conducive for hiccoughs,
advice directed to me has ranged all the way from putting my head
against a car exhaust and inhaling deeply twelve times to rolling down
a flight of stairs, taking a chunk out of the carpet with my teeth on
The point of this all is, of course, that just about everyone knows
what should be done about hiccoughs.
And, by the same token, just about everyone you talk to these
days knows what should be done about the Cornhusker football problem.

Is quite simple. Glassford should pull a disappearing act . . .- and they

Other groups scream lustily about the apathetic fans . . . the

Enthusiasm reigns high at Ne
braska in the eyes of gymnastics
coach Jake Geier. The head gym

be optimistic, with the return of
the veterans Bruce Riley and
Wayne Strickler. .
Riley last year was the sole re
sponsibility for the ninth place rat
i n g of Nebraska in the- NCAA
standings. The wiry senior won all
his events in dual meets last year
and went all the way to the na
tional finals. This year the ex-Marine
will again compete in all
events. This will consist of the
trampoline, side horse, horizontal
bar, parallel bar, rings, mats and
Strickler, Geier's number two
man will rely on the junior letter-
bar, parallel bar, rings and free
exercise. Only a junior, the head
coach is confident that by his
senior year, Strickler will fill the
shoes of the amazing Riley. He has
already shown much" improvement
over the 1954-55 campaign.
Two first year men that Geier is
relying on are Phil Hokenberger
and Jerry Landvier. Hokenberger
holds the upper hand in the fact
that he already has two events, the

A FLIGHT OF IMAGINATION prompted the Droodle
above it's titled: Flying saucer with Lucky-smoking
crew. But it's a down-to-earth fact that Luckies taste
better than any other cigarettes and for down-to-earth
reasons. First of all, Lucky Strike means fine
tobacco. Then, that light, mild tobacco is toasted to
taste even better . . . cleaner, fresher, smoother. So,
"Glurg shrdlu!" (In saucer language, that means,
"For taste that's out of this world, light up a Luckyl")
