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.

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:

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
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
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. '' ' ' . '
And what fan would forget
the 1959 game against Okla
homa when the Huskers upset
the mightly Sooners 25-21 for
a perfect NU Homecoming?

ATOs Edge Gus I 14-12
By Mel Hester
Alpha Tau Omega topped
Gus I 14-12 Wednesday to
earn themselves a spot in the
All-University finale against
Dental College tonight.
With Gus I leading 6-0, and
only one play left in the half,
Elmer Walin, ATO quarter
back, sprinted half the field
and tossed a short pass into
the end zone for a score. The
ATu's completed their extra
point to make the half time
score 7-6.
Alpha Tau Omega, with
their slim one point lead, took
position of the ball in the sec
ond half. After a few short
running gains, leaving them
on the 50 yard line, the ATO'i
sprinted the right end once
more making it to the 10-yard
line before being stopped by
the Gus I defensive safety
man. Two more runs and the
ATO's stretched the lead to
eight points.
Don .Whit of Gus I com
pleted a long pass to the ATO
10-yard line in the last quar
ter. Whit, fading back once
for a short touchdown pass.
Once more the extra point at

Bright futures in data transmission at W E.
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
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.
