The Nebraskan nominates Bill Glassford as
the "Coach of the Year."
The Nebraskan also would like to nominate
the 1955 Cornhuskers as the greatest "guts"
team in Nebraska football history.
Rash statements . . . irresponsible charges
... unfounded support.
Pe-haps. But let's look, for a moment, at
what's happened this year.
Before the season even started, several key
players. were chopped from the squad by the
ineligibility axe including Don Comstock, half
back, and Jerry Peterson, tackle.
The Huskers proceeded to lose the first game
In pathetic fashion, 6-0, to Hawaii, a team which
they had smothered over 50 points the year be
fore; This defeat provoked the angriest of de
nunciations, which was directed at both Glass
ford" and his team.
Throughout the remainder of the season,
each" has continued to work under the pressure
of criticism, which has fluctuated proportion
ately to the score of the previous Saturday's
Guard Jim Murphy, End Marlin Hilding and
Halfback Sylvester Harris were lost to the squad
for the season through injuries. At many other
times during the year, first stringers Bob Ber
guin, LeRoy Butherus, Don Erway, Bill Taylor,
John Edwards, La Verne Torczon, Jack Flem
ing and key reserve players George Cifra,
George Mink, Bill Hawkins, Gene Haman and
Frank Nappi have either been seriously ham
pered by injuries or have been temporarily on
the disabled shelf.
With more than their share of outside pres
sures and internal injuries and a poor start to
boot, here's exactly what the Huskers have done
They were nosed out by Ohio State, 28-20,
now leading the Big Ten. Woody Hayes, Buck
eye coach, said "the Huskers weren't Big Ten
caliber, but they played like it."
They beat K-State, 16-0, the first time in
All the hum and drum seems to have settled
down on Ag campus and a return to normalcy
seems to have been effected. There will be a
Farmers' Fair and a Farmers' Fair Board.
The Ag Exec Board will again assume its
usual functions which, for the most part, seems
to be the sponsorship of the "Farmers' Formal."
A group of people will be selected to co
ordinate Farmers' Fair and the entire body of
agricultural students will join in fervent prayers
for good weather this spring.
In other words, the status quo of last year at
this time has been preserved. What will happen
this spring when Ag students and the Student
Council again consider the possibility of joining
the boards' functions into one bigger and better
board is a question that will have to be post
poned. One thing that might be considered if the
adherents of both sides are interested in the
promotion of a successful Farmers' Fair is the
possible addition of a "voting" representative
from Farmers' Fair Board to Ag Exec Board.
This would not leave Fanners Fair Board alone
in the - wilderness with the somewhat momen
Henry's mad. Just about everything went
fine at the Homecoming Day game, just about.
The Homecoming afternoon started out beau
tifully. Henry and Clara came to the game with
happy smiles and hot coffee. Henry had a red
plaid blanket tucked under bis arm and a white
N flower pinned on his coat.
Clara, too, was in the crisp Homecoming
mood with a white mum dangling from her
lapeL She had an extra pair of gloves for Henry
in her purse along with two Homecoming pro
grams. Clara always likes to save a nice un
By half time both were in good spirits.
' Pleased and contented they relaxed for the half
The band's "Buffalo Bill, and the queen
presentation were well planned, interesting and
fitting for the glorious Homecoming big day.
Then came the card section's performance. The
two narrowed their eyes and strained their back
muscles. Clara cleaned her bifocals on a corner
of her white muffler and stared again.
"Henry, what is Coral' Ink?" Clara asked her
b sab and, while gazing across the football field.
Henry frowned, jerked his cap down closer to
bis ears and shrugged.
"I don't know, mother. Sure wish that those
young whippersnappers would do something so
we could read it."
"Do you suppose it's a publicity stunt for
some ink company? They think of everything
sowadayi although it does seem rather strange.'
At the same time, in West stadium the par
ticipating members of the care section were
smuanj; themselves in varied pleasures.
A gfrl in a Hue chinchilla coat offered her
companion a stick of gum and said, "You know,

Nebraska lost to Texas A&M, 28-0, three of
the touchdowns coming on Husker fumbles. The
Aggies are currently ranked number 7 in the
nation and are atop the tough Southwest con
ference. They lost, 21-0, toittsburgh in a tough,
well-played game. Pitt, number 17 in the nation,
knocked off nationally ranked Duke and Satur

They beat Missouri at Columbia, 18-12, the
first time since 1938.
They racked Kansas, 19-14.
The Huskers broke the Iowa State jinx to
take a 10-7 "battle.
Saturday they whipped Colorado, 37-20, in
convincing fashion to win their first Homecoming
game since 1950, compile the best Nebraska
conference mark since 1940, give Bill Glassford
his best coaching record in loop play, 5-0 and
set the stage for a showdown with the nation's
top team, Oklahoma, this Saturday. t
This is a pretty nice array of statistics for
any football team let alone a team plagued
with injuries, ineligibility and a battery of sports- 1
writers, fans and alumni who are so interested
in Nebraska football that all they can think
about is getting rid of the coach.
It's pretty good evidence that at last Ne
braskans have, a football team of which they
can be unreservedly, justifiably proud.
It's pretty good proof that the current edition
of the Scarlet and Cream is one of the gamest
teams to ever play on a Cornhusker gridiron.
It's enough to show that Glassford and his
staff have been doing a mighty fine job this
season; in fact, a remarkably fine job when you
figure that most people, after the Hawaii game,
didn't think the Huskers would win another
It should be enough to make a lot of people

are named and created.
As all Ag campus is interested in the success,
of Farmers Fair, it would seerr only logical
that the representative group of Ag campus,
the Ag Exec Board, would be the second most
interested group in the promotion of a good
Farmers' Fair second only to Farmers' Fair
More than likely, many of the problems that
the Farmers' Fair Board has had in the past
have been caused by a poor liaison with other

ping off the gum and nodded. "However, I sort
of feel badly about losing the cards. Oh well,
no one will know anyhow."
Both contentedly chewed their gum. "I told
my three little sisters to come for the next game,
we can easily sneak them in," the girl in the
blue chinchilla coat added. "Last time they
ripped up all the cards for confetti, but I told
them to take it easy next time."
After the game, Henry and Clara elbowed
their way out of the stadium. Each was quiet
and thoughtful until Henry suddenly muttered,
"Never heard of coral ink." B. J.
One Nebraska student didn't make it to his

He didn't have his theme ready to hand in,

her husband from having his Sunday bottle of

and clubbed her husband with a two-by-four.

Nebraskan Letterip '
To The Editor:
There seems to be an idea preva
lent among us students and voiced
editorially by The Nebraskan that
we students "have a right" to be
consulted in matters relating to ad
ministration of the University.
Nowhere in the regulations gov
erning the administration of this
state institution are there provi
sions for student participation in
the actual governing process.
The fact that students serve on
several faculty committees as vot
ing members is a privilege ex
tended by the faculty.
It is fortunate indeed that some
administrators are interested in
what the students think or desire
witness the Cornhusker Round
table but there is no pretense of
representative democracy (in the
sense of student participation) in
the governmental organization of
We must face the fact that we
don't now have a right to be con
sulted as some students seem to
believe, whether we think we
should or not.
We are misled by what some
times seem to be overtures to stu
dent opinion from certain admin
istrative officials. What usually is
being solicited is student leaders'
support for policies already etab-
lished by the crown without con
sultation with student opinion.
To cry abridgement of our
"rights" is not realistic; we are
heard at all only through the ef
forts of a few faculty members.

In a recent series of tests, Clark made a
critical appraisal of literally hundreds of
color-filter materials to find the ones that
produced maximum results but were still
suitable to high-production techniques, prac

experimental work also had to take into
account all the information on human per

1949, he already knew the work he wanted
to do. Like each of the 23,fX)0 college-graduate

just seems a little strange when
the most surprised people on cam

selves. Now, as we understand it, house
displays were supposed to have
been judged on originality and
workmanship. "Wha hoppen?" To
be blunt, the judges' decision made
the display competition a farce.
We would like to ask the judges
the following questions: (1) Just
what were the displays judged on?
It is quite obvious that originality
and, workmanship didn't enter into
(2) When was it announced that
there be a "grand championship"
or was this innovation made by
the judges or the announcer at th
dance? (3) Also, where were all
the honorable mentions?
It is quite obvious that there will
be no incentive to work on a house
display if the displays are to be
judged on some undefined "in
tangible" quality. Is it too much
to ask for some statement 'rom
the judges to support their "con
clusions?" A Slightly Dis-Organized House
