Friday, Nov. 3, 1961 The Daily Nebraskan Page 5 Sport Shots Wohlfarth By Bullet The tension is mounting in the Nebraska football picture. The Huskers have won only two games so far and could wind up with a 2-7-1 record unless they snao out of it. y The Huskers should be 4-2 right 1 now, with losses orJV to Swacuse and Missouri. The ma terial is there but in the last three weeks Nebraska hasn't shown it. There seems to bo internal problems among the team as well as poor coach-player relationships. Something is missing somewhere when a team continues to lose'. This could have been the year that Nebraska beat Kansas. The Jayhawks sputtered at the first of the season but started clicking after the Colorado game. Last week Kansas trounced Oklahoma State, a team which beat Nebraska. The Huskers are due for heir annual big surprise and home coming would be the perfect occasion but it's my guess that the Huskers would rather be after pheasants then Jayhawks this week end. Let's call it KANSAS 27 NE BRASKA 7 and hope we're wrong.

By Jan Sack Strong and not so strong Nebraska football teams have played on the Memorial Stadium gridiron before "crowds of cheering and de jected Husker fans. But how old is the Stadium? Where did the football team play before that? Memorial Stadium, as the students and fans know it to bay, has existed only since 1923. Actual construction of the massive structure seating 40.000 began in the spring of 1921, according to A. J. Lew andowski, NU athletic busi ness manager. Financial backing of George Holmes, then president of the First Trust Company, made the Stadium possible. Con tractors at that time would not work unless an influen tial person with some money backed the project. Bonds were floated and later retrieved from sales of football and basketball tick ets, Lewandowski said. An other source of revenue came from contributions from per sons throughout the state, Holmes said. 'No Tax Money" "No tax money whatever was used to pay the original cost of $502,900. The stadium, made of poured concrete, would now cost $1,250,000 to build," said Lewandowski. There is more to the Sta dium than just the football field. Below the stands in the East Stadium is an indoor track, formulated and in stalled by Henry Schulte, then Nebraska's track coach. The ova!, finished in 1924 and first used the following year, was 'also used for indoor football i practice before the Field: : tr - i :i c : ! i nousc a uuiii. ocaimg ca pacity in the East Stadium is 1,400. Some years later in 1940 the Field House was made possible by receipts of the 1941 Rose Bowl game. That year the Huskers traveled to Pasadena to meet the Stan ford Indians. Steel Problem "In 1942 we had the steel to go ahead with the Field House, but we turned it back to the war cause," Lewan dowski said. "It was 1947 be fore we got enough steel to complete the structure. In 1949 the final payment of $70,000 was made on the Field House." , After the completion of the Field House, shrubs, trees and the cyclone fence to the north of t h e Stadium was erected and the old wooden fence to the south of the sta dium was replaced with the present one. But where did the Nebraska team play before Memorial Stadium was built? To wle Recalls Field According to Cax T o w 1 e, former Husker football player in 1912-13, the field he played on ran east and west and was located just south of the pres ent field. "The shaky grandstand, lo cated on the north side of the field, was only filled with 7,000 fans even when we beat Minnesota 7-0 m 1913." - Only half of this field was sod and the other half was just plain dirt, Towle said. Before that, the f o o t b a 1 1 field was located on 10th street and ran north and south. Ail-Americans What about the All-Ameri-cans who fought and earned glory on the fields? Most loyal football fans re call the names of Guy Cham berlain, Sam Francis, Tom Novak, Bobby Reynolds, twice Ail-American tackle Ed Weir and others. Such immortals as Red Grange from Illinois and the Four Horsemen of Notre Dame also played in the Stadium, but as Husker foes. In fact in three meetings between 1923-25, the Scarlet; and Cream whipped the Fight- j ing Irish and the Horsemen twice: 14-7 and 17-0. Memor ies of those games are still fresh in the mind of John Bentley, director of athletic news who was formerly a sports writer for the Lincoln Journal. '' ' ' .

New engineers with initiative who can meet Western Electrics high standards are offered many exciting career opportunities with our company in data processing devciepment work as it relates to communications. For example, Western's engineers w orking closely with Bell Telephone Laboratories have solved develppment and manufacturing prob lems connected with the Bell System's new DATA-PHONE Data set (made by Western Electric). DATA-PHONE service lets business machines, such as computers, "speak" to each other in a language of numbers and symbols over existing telephone communication networks. This represents a tremendous boon to business; and consequently, it is estimated that some day there may be more machine talk than people talk using telephone hues. Of course, data co&miunications is only one of many rewarding career areas that await you at Western Electric. Here are just a few of the others: electronic switching . . . solid state electronic devices . . . microwave radio relay. . .computer-programmed production lines . . . solar cells , . . optical mascrs . . . futuristic telephones. We need high-caliber, forward-thinking en gineers now to help us transform these plans into realities or to work with us in scores of other key communications areas. Your future, the future of Western Electric, and the future of America's communications could well de pend on your first career connection.
