Daily Nebraskan Reporter
Despite threatening weather Saturday, a record num
ber of screaming females jammed the mall for Sigma Chi
Derby Day.
Early Saturday morning the shrill squeals of sorority
pledges could be heard as they ran from paint-bearing,
brush-wielding fraternity pledges. They were fleeing be
cause only the brand of the host fraternity would count
as points to help their house win Derby Day.
Taking honors for the second year were members of
PI Beta Phi sorority, who won the overall Derby Day
point contest and the new spirit trophy. Members of Gam
ma Phi Beta and Kappa Alpha Theta were second and
third respectively in overall points.
Winners of the events were: Egg Relay, Pi Phi team;
Dressing Race, Gamma Phi team; Whipped Cream Special,

The Iowa State game will
be the conference opener for
both clubs. The Cyclones,

Michigan Game
Well, anyway, there is this
Michigan game. The first
half was about even up for
both clubs with the Huskers
leading, 7-6.
But then Nebraska came
storming back in the second
half and stunned the fans
with a splurge of power.
"Man, we hit 'em in the
second half," said Ron Mich
ka, the Huskers' starting
And there is this other guy
named Dennis Claridge who
quarterbacked the Huskers
for most of the game and
played a whale of a game.
Claridge ran for 42 yards in

is to be put in the Innocents

The Highwaymen drew
record-breaking crowds at

the University last weekend,

ize the game right after it
has been played, but we sure
wanted to win, especially for
ourselves and for the coach

the 1962 campaign a success

downs and doing some fine
When asked about playing
again, Thunder said, "It feels
good to start hitting again.

It was kind of hard to get
used to after the layoff, but
after I got going I felt all
Concerning the game,
Thornton said, "Michigan
was tough, but we just out
played them. That first half
was too close."
Ifusker Line Tough
Michigan had trouble get
ting their ground game going
during the second half due
mainly to the fine defensive
play of the Cornhusker line.
The Wolverines gained only
i 63 yards on the ground dur-
I in8 ine second halt,
In on manv of the tackles
during the second half was
Al Fischer, senior right tackle
who said, "They were run
ning toward my side of the
line quite a bit during the
second half. We had a lot of
spirit." Fisher also re
marked "Iowa State is going
to be tough."
And then there was J i m
Huge who was slated for
only spot duty after a slight
concussion in the South Da
kota game. Huge came off
the bench to become the top
pass catcher of the day, grab
bing three passes for 61
Neck Is Okay
"They didn't hit as hard as
I thought they were going
to," said Huge. "My neck,
which was bothering me dur
ing last week's practice ses
sions, didn't bother me at all
during the game."
Tyrone Robertson, from To
ledo, O., "enjoyed playing
against some of the boys
from my home state."
Concerning the diffeience
between the first and second
halves, Robertson said, "Mi
chigan had to work for their
touchdown in the second half.
We gave them the one they
got in the first half."
Key Reception
Dick Callahan, right end
who made a key catch of one
of Claridge's passes in t h e
final touchdown drive, sum

"I don't think anything about
the game. All I know is we
Coach George Kelly felt,
"The difference in the game
was the determination of the
boys in the sec -id half. Kel
ly singled out Lloyd Voss and
Bob Brown for their fine de
fensive play.
"I sure hope there are
some people at the airport to
welcome these guys home,"
said Kelly.
Airport Rally
And "some people at the i
airport to welcome these
guys home" was just what
there was.
An estimated 3,500 Nebras
ka students and football fol

cheerleaders" met the Husk
ers at the airport upon their
return Saturday night.
All kinds of enthusiasm
was shown at the airport
with signs flying, students

'Baby Crop' Hits Campus
Enrollment Boom
Reported at NU
Nebraskan Staff Writer
The post-war "baby crop"
has hit the University with
all the reverberations of a
herd of elephants as the total
student population of the Uni
versity has skyrocketed to
Chancellor Clifford Hardin
said the record enrollment
shows an overall gain of 955
students over the previous
year, or a 10.1 per cent in
Although final figures are
still not available, the Junior
Division has counted a fresh
man class of 2,480 up 320
students, or a 15 per cent in
crease over last year.
This year's enrollment re
flects the largest numerical
increase since 1946, when the
war's end flooded the Univer
sity campus with returning
war veterans. The enrollment
in 1946 skyrocketed to 9,669
from the previous year's total
of 4,284. In 1947, the enroll
ment climbed to the peak of
10,153, an enrollment record
which had stood for the past
15 vears.
Dr. Hardin said the 1962
enrollment breakdown, which
is still incomplete, shows
7,183 men and 3,208 women,
the highest coed enrollment
in the history of the Univer
sity. Compared with last
Extension Classes
Set New Record
The University Extension
Division announced Saturday
that 2,612 high school students
have registered for 4,649 cor
respondence courses since
July 1.
During the 1962 fiscal year,
a record was set with 13,911
persons from all fifty states
and eighty foreign countries
enrolled in 22,595 courses.

year, the male enrollment Is
up 571, and the coed's total
is 384 higher.
There is a feeling among
the admission people that the
lack of on-campus housing
probably caused at least 100
to 150 new students to cancel
their applications this fall,"
Dr. Hardin said. Now under
construction on the city cam
pus is a 960-student dormi
tory complex, which may be
ready for occupancy next
Looking at the over-all in
crease, Registrar Floyd
Hoover . speculated that a
larger percentage of Nebras
ka high school graduates is
attending college. He said
that state-wide figures show
an increase of about 300 in
last June's high school grad
uates over 1961.
Dr. Hoover believes that
the University's enrollment
increase is slightly higher
than the national average.
Last year, the University
showed an eight per cent
climb, compared with national
average of 7.5 per cent.
Also, the University has re
ported an additional 944 stu
dents none of whom are
counted in the regular en
rollment in the evening
classes; 215 at the Nebraska
Ag High School at Curtis;
and 272 at University High
School. The Extension Divi
sion expects to match its
last year's off-campus enroll
ment of 720 for the first se
mester. This year's off-campus
courses are now being
organized throughout the
Including off-and on-campus
and evening students, the
total enrolled at the Univer
sity is 12,542.
