The University of Nebraska football squad
went into the Kansas State game a seven poi.-.t
They came out the winner of both the game
and the respect of many who would have
buried the Huskers before the Big Eight season
Those who take the slaps on the backs from
folks around Lincoln land are probably the
same ones who looked down in the dumps at
the University footballers last week and the
It's not too surprising to consider the effect
victory has on the total population of the
University. Those who had been fans of the
Cornhuskers glowed with pride and pointed out
individuals like Gene Sandage who played
almost the entire game for the Huskers or
Bill Jennings, whose cool determinism inspired
the boys with a fervor to win.
Those who quickly turn into fair weather
fans when the scoreboard clicks the team into
favor glowed also at the Cornhusker victory.
We believe that taking the entire season into
consideration at least at this early date
well have to admit that the team has played
some pretty hard balL The team has become
more and more polished. They have finally
arrived In the league they were meant to be
is vying against squads like Kansas State.
On the distaff side the prophets of woe are
saying that the Huskers are in for another
trouncing next week at the hands of Pitts
burgh. Jennings admits that a couple of top men
might miss the game because of injuries.
But we'd like to make a prediction.
This newspaper believes that if the the Corn
huskers work as hard against Pitt as they did
this past Saturday in Manhattan, that if the
football enthusiasm of the students on the
campus rubs hard the players; that if the
alums would get behind the Huskers on their
jaunt to the East, this football team can do
as well as any other team Pitt will meet.
That means they wiii play hard, drive bird
and get some of that good old pioneer Ne
braska spirit into the game.
They may not win Pitt is top drawer stuff.
But they'll do their durndest for Nebraska U.
With one win under their belt the Corn
huskers may shock a lot of people.
They did it by thrashing K-State.
They did it by stirring a lot of comment
about what football spirit is and bow it in
spires or halts a team.
Maybe enough of the students at this insti
tution were shamed by the poor turnout at the
farewell rally Friday to think about what the
team means to the school and bow the honor
of the University is reflected by the prestige
the football team collects.
This may not be the purpose of a University
to raise great grid powers. But it is cer
tainly the measuring stick of the fame of a
university to those outside the educational
scope of a schooL
The kind of success we'd like to see the
football team capture is the kind that binds
the University together into a family which
can show the outside world that we play bard,
we win hard and we lose graciously.
Onoe again we can stress quite safely that
culture isn't quite dead out here in the wilds
As a matter of fart, as one English professor
commented Monday, "We've become an oasis,
it seems." S'jpT!

First the Theater. This season the number
of productions has been cut down. This move
is apparently being taken to cut the cost but
we can speculate that the quality of each pro
duction will be improved with additional re
hearsal time available.
The Howell Theater group is planning to do
four plays, two rather light ones this semester
and two more on a somewhat different plane

and what have you) is now being conducted by
As for the gallery shows, two University
English professots, Miss Bernice Slote and Karl
Shapiro, wIH conduct a poetry reading program
this evening at 8:30 in the Morrill Hall facilities.
This program, one of many which win be
sponsored by the English Department and the
Art Departments, will include the poetry of
University students. The evening's entertain
ment is free.
AH three of the above mentioned departments
are getting their skulls together to provide
another form of entertainment, a play reading,
which will be held in the Art Galleries.
As far as the Student Council nominating
committee is concerned the greatest part of
the battle is over.
The interviews are over. The nominations
have been made.
Now it will be up to the council to take
to heart the tons of advice handed out so
freely by all parties involved over the past
couple of weeks and pick the student members
of the Pub Board.
The choices which will be made will, we
believe, affect the future of the student vote
on faculty committees.
During the past week or so the Daily Ne
braskan has spoken of the added responsi
bilities which go along with student votes. Now
there is one more step which, if taken in the
food faith with which the nominees, applicants
and committee members took their respective
steps, we can be assured of a top flight pub
We'd like to see student votes reinstated on
the faculty committee. This seems to be pretty
We would also like to see the student mem
bers of the pub board take on extra respon
sibilities. Both go hand in hand, we feel.
So, as has been stated before and win be
stated again, it's up to the council.
What the council win look for in the nominees
and what they win give to the students should
be a matter of deep concern to all students
on this campus.
We would recommend that students start
talking to their council members and let them
know what they want and who they want for
the pub board. A good deal of lobbying might
change the minds of the council members. And
in any democratic society the representatives
have an obligation to listen to their constituents.
So from the final results of the pub board we
might be able to gauge a couple things: 1) the
interest the entire student body has in this
important action; 2) the acceptance of respon
sibility by the council.
Both results should be very enlightening.

a Migration announcement soon possibly this
week with the move almost assuredly being

Bus Mertes predicted (after K-State .overpow

to win against .Nebraska." Ee was right.
The Cornhusker victory gives Nebraska 33
victories in the 42-game series with seven for
K-State and two ties. The Huskers, incidentally,
played with an injury-pocked squad while the
Wildcats ran at nearly fuU strength.
This week the Huskers face the powerful
Pittsburgh Panthers, which boast a starting
line averaging more than 229 pounds, from end
to end. Coach Johnny Micheolsen modestly
claims "Depth is a terrific problem.""
The rugged Panthers this year kept 11 of 2a
lettermen but lost their two quarterbacks,
Corny Salvaterra and Darren Lewis, as wen
as seven starters. In addition they lost five
alternate-teamers according to pre-season re
ports. While we're on the football jag. North Caro

will have to say.
Poor playing by Kansas State?
Whatever is said, you can be
sure it win be a reversal of last
week's pounding on the door -of
the University in search for some
excuse to .explain away the Husk
ers'' previous losses.
On the .other hand I would be
Inclined to believe that the footban
squad won because it played bard,
because it had the desire to win.
The Daily Nebraskan noted Mon
day that very few persons turned
out to say farewell to the team.
That didnt seem to make much
difference to the boys 'ho got in
to the game.
And from an reports they didn't
make a lot of noise after the game
whooping it up on the occasion
of their first win. Whatever the
motivation for the initial win, I
think it is safe to eay that the
Huskers were batting in their own
league against Kansas State. One
local sportswriter had it pegged
right when he said that if we want
a top notch team well have to
go out and pay for it

Then, after a while of peace, a

hamburgers and television can be

seen that they bind tightly. Old
windows of conformity can be
opened so that one can get a
glimpse into new Moms of heresy.
Old ideas can be looked at in dif
