Mrs. Jennings Acquainted
To Sharing
Mary Jennings, attractive
wife of the Cornhuskers'
head football coach, has to
share her husband with foot
ball these days, but she's
used to it.
The Jennings met during
the football season of 1938
when Bill was a sophomore
end on the University of
Oklahoma football squad.
Mary was the school's band
queen. Two years later, dur
ing Bill's third season as a
Sooner pass catcher,
they were married.
' Although Mrs. Jeniiiiirs
admits it's not easy at times
to be a coach's wife, she
doesn't seem to mind it
as much as being a player's
wife. At least she can enjoy
games now.
"When we were married.
Bill was still playing for
Oklahoma," Mrs. Jennings
said "and I was so worried
about him that I didn't go
to any more games that sea
son." Life as a football coach's
wife began for Mrji. Jen

ing the word "Band." In pre
vious shows the spelling dem
onstration was limited to a
three-letter word.
The bands will play six
numbers: "Band Day Salute,"
written by Lentz for the birth
day festivities; "The Star
Spangled Banner;" "Law and
Order;" "Hosts of Freedom;"
"March of the Cornhuskers,"
and "Dear Old Nebraska U."
Last year the musicians
formed on the field in one
minute. Lentz said he hopes to
waste less time this year.
Along with the bands, more
than 300 high-stepping baton
twirlers will dot the grass as
they go through their figure
eights, wrist and finger twirls
and body passes.
The bands will begin their
day officially with a 70-min-ute
parade through downtown
Lincoln at 9:15 a.m.
The parade route will
be: south on 10th to O St.;
east to 14th; north to R; west
to 12th; and north to the East
Stadium. The reviewing stand
will be on Penney's marquee,
on the northeast corner of 13th
and O streets.
Builders will serve the per
formers snack lunches pro
vided by the Lincoln Promo
tion Council. University Band
members will assist the indi
vidual bands during the day.
Parking on O St. from 10th
to' 14th and on lOtli from O to
the foot of the 10th St. viaduct
will be prohibited during the
morning, according to assist
ant police chief Willis Man
chester. There will also only
be two-lane traffic on the
east side of 10th St., he added.
Assisting the Lincoln Police
Department in handling the
crowds will be Boy Scouts.
The idea of a Band Day
was conceived in 1934 by John
Selleck, former chancellor of
the University, and at that
tiroe business manager of the
athletic department. Selleck
invited 15 community bands
to participate.
I Eleven bands attended the
j first all high-school band day
J under Lentz's direction. Since
I World War II, the number of
schools participating has
jumped from 30 to 70. This
rapid growth necessitated the
practice of inviting each band
only once every three years.
