"The most fun we've had in
a long time" commented
Husker junior quarterback
Ron Meade when asked about
Saturday's 33-C victory over
North Dakota.
Meade seemed to reflect
the attitude of the entire
Cornhusker team in that they
were elated over the season
opener. He also was confident
about the future, saying, "We
can beat anybody."
Bill 'Thunder" Thornton
felt that the backs had a dif
ficult time getting footing,
and that the score might have
been higher if the field had
not been so wet. Thornton
said that the team was in
"great shape. We were right
in there all the time. We had
good passing and a tremen
dous defensive line."
When asked about the fu
ture, the Toledo star retorted.
'"We're going to be tough, real
Huge Optimistic
Jim Huge, who had a good
day for himself, recovering a
fumble, catching two passes
and intercepting another, felt
that "the rest of the teams
are going to be tougher.
We've sure got good chances,
Bill Comstock, who had a
six point afternoon, thought
that "We were a little rag
ged, but you can be sure that
we will win our share. The
line was great," said the jun
ior fullback from Scottsbluff.
Dick McDaniel, who snared
the pigskin five times for a
total of 52 yards, stated that

Texas Christian had some
thing under their sleeves
Saturday to nip favored Kan
sas 17-16, or, anyway, that's
what the predictors are say
ing. Kansas had their hopes
shattered when junior Jerry
Spearman kicked a 36-yard
field goal through the uprights
t clinch the game for TCU
with minutes remaining.
There was another shock in
Kansas but with a different
tang tied to it Kansas State,
which proved the predictors
to be wrong again by upset
ting Indiana 14-8.
Reigning at the top of the
Big Eight list is Iowa State
after their conference w i a
over Oklahoma State 14-7.
One man dominated the Cy
clones scoring column with
both touchdowns. Tailback
Dave Hoppmann gathered a
87 yard touchdown and a 40
vard touchdown to spark the
Cyclones to their second via
of the season.

"We've got it this year, if we
keep hitting, we'll have a

Sioux Coach Proud
"We're proud of our team,"
was the comment made by
North Dakota coach Whitey
Helling. Helling also stated
his boys had a little of that
old disease, stage fright.
"With the defense set to
stop the power of Bill 'Thun
der' Thornton we might have
helped some of the other Ne
braska backs and I know we
helped their air attack," was
another comment made by
the Sioux head coach.
Duane Breitling, North Da
kota center, praised the half
back Thornton and tackle
Bob Jones along with the
tricky traps Nebraska execut
ed for good yardage. Other
Cornhuskers who were pin
pointed by the North Dakota
club as being tough were Don
Purcell, Ron Meade and Pat
Bill Leifur, former Nebras
ka footballer who didn't see
action because of injuries,
commented that Nebraska
has seemed to open up on of
fense and have gone to the
air much more than in previ
ous years.
North Dakota, with their
first string center on the in
jury list with a broken foot,
had troubles with four of the
snaps. "Snapped it a little too
quick on that first one," said
Breitling, "I don't know what

Wilson, the commanding
signal-caller, was Arizona's
chief weapon against weak
Colorado State Saturday. He
passed for two touchdowns
one for 70 yards, the other
54 and scored a third TD
himself after he had set it up
with a 20-yard pass to the
3-yard line.

It happen even- day. A young man (wes off to college, leaving
his home town sweetheart with vow of eternal love, and then
he finds that he lias outgrown her. What, in such cases, is the
honorable tiling to do?
Well sir, you can do what Rock Sigafoo did.
When Rock left Cut and Shoot, Pa., he said to Li sweetheart;
a simple country lass named Te3 d' l"rbeville$, '"My dear,
though I am far away in college, I will love you always. I will
never look at another girl. If I do, may my eyeballs parch and
wither, may my viscera wTithe like aiders, may the moths get
my new tweed jacket"'
Then lie clutched Tes to his lioom and planted a final kiss
upon her fragraut young skull and went away, meaning with all
his heart to 1 faithful.
But on the very first day of college he met a coed named
l ata Morgana, a girl of such sophistication, such poie, uch
ta.oir-fnirf as Rock had never beheld. She sxAe knowingly .f
Franj Kafka, she hummed Miurt, she smoked Marlboro.
Now, Rock didn't know Franz Kafka from Paucho Villa, or
Mozart from James K. Polk, but Marilyn he knew full well.
He knew tliat anyone who smoked Marlboros was modern and
advanced and a studded with brains as a ham with clove,

This Roc k knew.
So all day he followed Fata around campus and listeied to her

to the dormitory and found thi letter from his home town

Well tir. Rock thought about TVs. and then he thought
al-out 1 ata and then a great sadness fell upon him. Suddenly
he knew he had outgrown young, innocent Tes; his heart now
belonged to smart, sophisticated Fata.
Rock, being above all things honorable, returned forthwith
to his home town and walked up to Tess and looked her in the
eve and said manlily, "I do not love you any more. I love
girl named Fata Morgana. You can hit me in the stomach.with
all vour might if you like."
"That's okay, liey," said Tess amiably. "I don't love yo
neither. I found a new boy."
"What ia his name?" asked Rock.
"Franx Kafka," said Tess.
"A splendid fellow," said Rock and shook Taw hand, and

game.' For Monday's workout,
Gary Toogood replaced the
injured Jones at number one
left tackle with Monte Kiffin
running number two.
George Haney and Ron
Michka, who saw plenty of
action Saturday, were the
top two centers. Tingelhoff
was still confined to Student
Health, Jennings added.
Jennings had plenty of
praise for the Huskers in
their opener and called the
ability of the Huskers to get
up even if they'd been
knocked down, "a good sec
ond effort."
He reported that quarter
back Ron Meade, "threw well
and ran the ball club well."
Claridge Looks Good
He also praised quarter
back Dennis Claridge, who
lived up to his billing in his
first game as a Husker, and
defensive halfback Warren
Linemen receiving praise
from the NU head coach in
cluded Bob Brown, Jones,
Toogood, Ed Mitchell and Ty
rone Robertson.
Archie Cobb's status in re
gard to his attempt for a
draft deferment is still un
known, according to Jennings.
Cobb, NU's punting special
ist, is scheduled to be draft
ed into the service Oct. 1.
Jennings said he planned to
use Cobb again this week.
Dick McDaniel, senior end,
tied a varsity record when
he caught five passes, a 1 1
from quarterback Meade, in
the Husker opener.
Coach Jennings swept the
bench during the game, us
ing 46 players, including five
quarterbacks, whom he said
he felt performed well.
