77)'s Win Foot of Sod;
Extra Point Club Grows
. . . Campus Collects More r,,han S600
By Ann Mover
The Kappa Deltas will be the proud pos
sesrors of one square foot of sod taken
from the football field at the end of the
The sod Is the prize offered by the Ne
braska Extra Point Club to the organiza
tion on campus which sold the most Extra
Point pins.
The KD's sold $103 worth, while Delta
Tau Delta placed second collecting $100
and Farmhouse sold 76 pins for third place.
The total collected on campuc was more
than $600, well above last years sales total.
To Draw Planter
Kappa Delta will draw from among the
groups who did not sell any pins to de
termine the planter of the sod.
The Extra Point Club idea was origin
ated over coffee cups by a group of Lin
coln businessmen headed by Joe Yetman.
The idea was approved by "the University
and the Chib was incorporated in 1957.
The purpose of the Club is to allow per
sons to contribute to the University grant-in-aid
athletic program. Membership in
the Club costs $1 annually.
Supporters who felt they were not finan
cially able to belong to such organizations
as the Touchdown Club welcomed the ad
vantage to contribute in smaller amounts
through the Extra Point Club. The club
also makes it possible for people of all
ages to participate, Club officials added.
The name of the group evolved from the
dollar membership solicitation. When par
alleled with football jargon it led .to the
name Extra Point Club.
Coordinate Activities
A five-member Board of Directors co
ordinates the activities of the club. Presi
dent of the board is Lou Roper, Lincoln
businessman and former University foot
ball player.
Roper reported that in the first year of
operation, 1957, the club contributed $4,500
to the athletic scholarship fund. The
amount increased in 1938 to $6,000.

This year's goal has been set at $18,000.
According to Roper, $4,500 already has
been turned in and $7,500 more collected
clubs throughout the stale.
The eventual goal of the Club is to col
lect $50,000 annually.
Roper explained he felt the growing in
terest in Nebraska sports, especially foot
ball, was becoming more evident. He
cited the expanding size of the Point Club
and the growing crowds at the games as
When asked his opinion of the import
ance of the University's grant-in-aid pro
' gram, he replied, "If the University wants
to compete in athletics with major col
leges, money for athletic scholarships is a
necessity. Without it, Nebraska will be
forced to compete with smaller schools."
Jenning's Praised
In regard to the University's athletic de
partment. Roper commented that he felt
Coach Bill Jennings had done a "wonder
ful job."
He said Jennings had initiated a positive
attitude among the team members, not
only toward scholastic ratings. Roper also
cited Chancellor Clifford M. Hardin's en
thusiasm for sports as an important fac
tor in the improvement of the department.
When questioned about the part school
spirit played in the performance of the
team Roper said, "Although the players do
not actually hear the cheering, they can
feel the excitement and enthusiasm of the
crowd. If this feeling is present a team can
almost do the impossible." i
Roper was a varsity player at "the Uni
versity from 1947-1951.
He said he had been greatly disappoint
ed by the team's reception at the airport
after their Minnesota win last week.
He estimated only two hundred persons
were present and said he recalled the
team's return from a similar victory in
1951. They were greeted by a crowd of
4 000 and the University band.

Shannon Voices Views
On Religion in Politics
By Harv Perlman
"The fact that there are a
number of prominent Catho
lics, including Sen. John Ken
nedy in particular, that are
mentioned for the presidency,
brings ,to our attention the
role of religion in America's
politics," says Dr. Jasper
Shannon, chairman of the po
litical science department.
Since the defeat of Catholic
Al Smith in his try for the
presidency in 1929, religion
has been a major issue in any
political platform, Dr. Shan
non said. Now the religion .' c
tor comes to the spotlight
again in the political future of
Sen. Kennedy, he added.
Not As Prominent
Religion will not be as
prominent a factor in the
coming election as it was 32
years ago, Dr. Shannon said.
The difference, Dr. Shan
non said, is the difference be
tween the two men, Smith
and Kennedy. Smith personi
fied characteristics that ur
ban people didn't like, he said.
"Smith was somewhat un
couth and had a lack of cul
ture and education while Ken
nedy is a member of a
wealthy and cultivated fam
ily," Dr. Shannon comment
ed. More Sophistication
Another reason he gave for
the difference of feeling to
wards religion and the presi
dency was "more sophistica
tion on the part of the Catho
lic Church with regard fo pol
By bringing the problem to
the Midwest, Shannon said he
felt that perhaps the religion
question will affect the vote
more in this region.
Looser party ties will influ
ence this area. "The farmer,"
said Dr. Shannon, "is inclined
to vote Democratic because of
the Republican farm policy,
but the religion factor may

A more rational and less
emotional approach to this
question is expected by Dr.
Shannon on evidence that sev
eral Catholic governors have
come out against Kennedy
and other prominent Catho
lic politicians are supporting
non-Catholic candidates.
Dr. Shannon also said that
if Kennedy does not obtain
the nomination for the presi
dency he may accept the nom
ination for the vice-presidency.
"In this fashion," said Dr.
Shannon, "religion will play
a prominent part in under
cover consideration of both
parties. It doesn't appear now
that the same bitterness will
be aroused as in 1928."
