University students stream in
to Memorial Stadium for the
first football game of the year,
lost by Nebraska to Hawaii, 6-0.
The Huskers bounced back, how
ever, to post a five-wins, five
losses season mark, and take
second in the Big Seven Confer
ence. All conference selections
included halfbacks Rex Fischer
and Willie Greenlaw, and tackle
Lavern Torczon. In posting a
5-1 conference mark in losing
only to Oklahoma, the Univer
sity had their best Big Seven
record since 1940, when the con
ference was the Big Six. In beat
ing Colorado, the Huskers won
their first Homecoming game
game since 1950. This file of stu
dents was a familiar sight dur
ing New Student Week, which the
game climaxed. Freshmen and
transfer students found them
selves in lines which seemed to
spread from the Coliseum to the
Law Building: New students
were hustled in and out of the
Coliseum,, Grant Memorial : and
the M&N . Building, until their
arms ached and their eyes wept

The first semester of the school
year 1955-56 was, to say the least,
a year of changes.
The biggest change was in foot
ball coaches, as Bill Glassford
stepped down after seven years,
and Pete Elliott was wooed away
from Oklahoma to fill his place.
Elliott stepped in . immediately
aftre Oklahoma won the Orange
on the student scene when the Ctu
dent Council reversed a rule set
last spring for the limitation of
This year's Council dropped the
limitation from the books, but kept
a 5.7 minimum average necessary
to hold an office in a campus
. This reversal grew out of a
storm of protest at the ruling last
spring, and another mild temptest
was raised over the retention of
the 5.7 minimum average.
Even the Faculty Senate got in
to the picture when they changed
a decision made last year to cut
down the final exam period to one
week. Without having to try the
shortened period, the University
is back with two-week exams.
Perhaps the biggest change of
the year is one that happens to
every student at one time or an
other. This is the change from high
school or prep school to Univer
sity, a change calculated to drive
one stark staring bewildered.
This change manifiesed itself in
New Student Week, when freshmen
themselves standing in endless
lines, filling out endless forms and
going to endless wrong buildines
and wrong rooms.

the University, with a change when
they banned the annual Kosmet
