Thunder Strikes Sooners As Huskers Do It Again
By Hal Brown
The Huskers did it agafn.'"
Nebraska's unpredictable
gridders came up with an
other upset victory Satur
day against Oklahoma on
the strength of a strong
second-half performance.
The Huskers trailing 14-0
at halftime, battled back
with their strongest offens
ive display of the season
to overtake the Sooners on
two touchdowns by Thun
der Thornton and a field
goal by Ron Meade.
Nebraska's win made the
Huskers the first conference
team to win two games in
a row from the Sooners
since Nebraska did it in
1939-40-41-42. Nebraska broke
the Sooners' string of 74
conference games without
a defeat when the Huskers
scored a 25-21 upset tri
umph a year ago in Lincoln.
The Sooners, who hadn't
lost a conference game at
Norman since Nebraska
won, 7-0, in 1942, have now
lost two straight at Norman
with Missouri winning, 41
19, a week ago.
The Nebraska win gives
the Huskers a 4-6 season
record to match last year's
mark, and a 2-5 mark in
the conference. The loss
leaves Oklahoma with a 1-4-1
record in the conference
and 2-6-1 overall with Ok
lahoma State remaining on
the schedule.
Sixth Place
The Huskers are now in
sixth . place in the Big
Eight standings and can do
no worse than a tie for
that spot depending on the
outcome of the Oklahoma
Oklahoma State contest Sat
urday. If Oklahoma State
wins, the Huskers would be
AUF Student Drive
Soliciting Ends;
Collecting: Starts
The 1960 All University
Fund Student Drive ended
Saturday but not all the
money has been received by
the AUF according to Deon
Stuthman, AUF treasurer.
Money coming in through
check and mail transactions
will take some time, he said
"We did not receive all the
money last year until the
middle of January," Stuth
man added.
'Greatest Year'
"This is the greatest year
the AUF has and for a long,
long time!" stated Ron Mc
Keever, AUF vice president
in charge of solicitations. "I
see no reason why we should
not reach our goal," Stuth
man said.
The goal for the student
drive was set at $4,800. This
will not include the money
received from the Pancake
Feed which kicked off the
present drive.
The faculty drive will be
held next spring. The total
goal for the two drives has
been set at $5,500.
A Lincoln drive has also
been conducted to solicit from
Independent students. This
was especially successful be
cause of functions held by
some sororities and fraterni
ties, who helped canvass the
Lincoln area, McKeever ex
plained. Shoot High
"Every area we know of is
progressing even better than
usual," McKeever noted. "It's
hard to tell if we will make
our goal, but you always
want to shoot high in such
a drive as this," McKeever
Last year the goal for the
total AUF drive was set at

other organizations have even
offered to help us in the
drive," he commented.

All that is required in or-

if the Sooners win, then
Nebraska would have to
share the sixth spot with
me Cowboys.
Nebraska's first tally
Saturday came early in the
second half when Thunder
Thornton rammed his way
into the end zone from the
one-yard line.
The drive began on the
Oklahoma 46 where Ronnie
Payn punted the ball dead
for the Sooners. Nebraska
needed 10 plays to get the
score. Clay White picked
up six yards on two carries
and Bernie Clay got a first
down at the Oklahoma 35.
On the next play Clay
bolted for 15 yards and a
first down at the 20-yard
line. Bennle Dillard picked
up five on two carries and
then quarterback Pat
Fischer found White with
a pass good for 10 yards.
Three charges into the
line by Thornton netted the
touchdown. Ron Meade
came in for the conversion
attempt but Fischer stood
up as he took the snap and
looked for a receiver. When
he found everyone covered,
Fischer raced into the end
zone with the two-point con
version and the H u s k e r s
trailed by only 14-8.
Oklahoma opened! the
third quarter with a quick
kick by Bobby C o r ne 1 1
from its own 14 to the Ne
braska 17 to set up the ty
ing score by the, Huskers.
White moved the ball to
the 25 with two plays and
Fischer picked up two
yards and a first down at
the 27. An offside penalty
advanced the ball to the
Nebraska 32.
Thornton Goes
Thornton, who has been
hampered by a jammed
neck nearly all season, took
the handoff from Fischer
and broke through a hole
over his own right guard
and raced 68 yards with
the tying count. The long
run was the second of the
season for Thornton as the
Husker sophomore romped
57 yards to score against
Minnesota earlier in the
Meade's extra point kick
was blocked by Oklahoma's
Ronnie Payne and the score
was knotted at 14-all.
Oklahoma took the ensu
ing kickoff and immediately
began a goalward drive.
Fullback Ronnie Hartline
and left halfback Mike
McClellan drove from the
Oklahoma 36 to the Ne
braska 28 where Clay and
White broke up a Sooner
pass in the end zone.
The Sooners then pushed
to the 17 before a pitchout
from quarterback Jimmy
Carpenter to McClellan
went astray and Noel Mar
tin pounced on the loose
pigskin at the Nebraska 22
with 8:11 remaining in the
The Huskers moved to a
fourth and one situation on
their own 45. Thornton
rammed three yards for the
first down with five min
utes left.
Fischer rolled out on a
bootleg and scampered 23
yards to the Sooner 29. Ne
braska needed five plays to
move to the 10-yard line
and on fourth down, Meade
raced onto the field with
the tee in his hand.
The ball was teed up on
the 18 by Fischer and
Meade booted it between
the uprights for the win
ning points.
The Huskers reached a
season high in rushing yard
age as they gained 277
yards from the doublt

FiveQuizless Days
To Talk Turkey, Kids
By Norm Beatty
It's here at last! The official Thanksgiving vacation
starts Wednesday.
After two full months of studying, cramming for exams,
worrying over quizzes, reports, themes, speeches and grades
in gejieral, the nearly 10,000 University students and faculty
will have five full days away from the classrooms.
For some the five days will mean five days of work.
For others it will, mean a chance to get caught up on class
work that book I should have read three weeks ago, a re
port that was due day before yesterday and that term paper
which is due before Christmas.
Hunting will undoubtedly fill the majority of the vaca
tion hours for a sizeable number of the male students. For
these ambitious people the day usually starts at 5 a.m. and
runs until dark.
For most of us it will simply mean five days in, which to
do little or nothing except watch TV, talk with parents and
friends at home or entertain a friend at our homes.
The mid-term examinations are finished and will be
forgotten for nearly a week, regardless of how the grades
came out it's water under the bridge. '
Thursday is Thank giving day and in most cases it is the
"turkey day." Food, food and much too much food. Turkey,
dressing, cranberries and pumpkin pie (with whipped
cream). The list goes on and on.
Friday, for most, will be "recouperate day" as cries
of "I ate too much" fill the air. This is one time of the year
that most of us will agree that "America is the land of
Besides hunting, the traditional Thanksgiving Day foot
ball games on TV and the Thanksgiving church services
are about the only forms of activity some will have.

AWS Rules
The Associated W o m e n's
Student rules governing fe
male students on the Nebras
ka campus will be studied by
a special Student Council
George Moyer, Law College
Council representative,
brought the motion before the
council to set up a committee
"to study 'the AWS rules,
compare' them with similar
rules at other schools and
recommend to the Council
their findings and suggestions
for changes in these rules."
One reason for the study,
according to Moyer, is the
possibility of extending the
girla hours during the week
for study at the library.
Sherry Turner said that a
recent poll of female students
showed that most of them
were "satisfied" with the
present rules.
Susanne Tinan noted that
Panhellenic is presently in
the process of a similar study.

Committee chairman
George Moyer said the com

Shugrue, editor of the Daily

previous Council-Faculty eval

Shugrue brought to the
committees' attention the
fact that both the speech

evaluations and the results
of these experimental tests
