DEVANEY NOTES LANE Nebraska Coach Bob De
vaney points out that the Tiger offense is stronger this
year with quarterback Gary Lane.
Rood Awakening

Even the word Missouri around campus triggers many
a cringe or frown. For it was just last year on Homecoming,
on television, on Memorial Stadium turf that the Tigers hu
miliated Nebraska.
The score was 16 to 7.
It was especially disheartening because the Huskers
had strong six straight before the Tigers' invasion. This
fact, is itself, had instilled a certain pride in Husker fans
and players alike. After years of mediocrity, winning was
a charming habit. The Missouri loss destroyed that habitual
pride much quicker than it had been built.
Kansas helped Nebraskans forget somewhat, just as Colo
orado has lifted us from the Air Force loss this year . . .
And the pride is very much alive and vibrant.
The Missouri Memory is also very much alive. But one
will overcome the other one can aid defeat, the other vic
tory. Dennis Claridge can't forget the hard-charging Tiger
lineman; Willie Ross won't forget that tough pursuit; Dave
Theisen probably doesn't want to remember that fatal fum
ble; the whole darn team that saw Missouri action last year
won't forget That's just it.
This year it's going to be different. I would venture to
say that this is the game the Huskers have been waiting
for. They are literally, "up for the game."
It was back in 1956 when Nebraska last beat Missouri,
15 to 14. It's going to happen again in 1963. Make it NE

Living units who have pushed red apparel and hats at
Nebraska games have indicated a real spirit. The sight
from the press box "at Minnesota and at Kansas State (away
games) was real impressive. One Minneapolis scribe said
he had never seen so many visiting fans in the Gopher's
stadium. Red color was sprinkled liberally through five sec
tions of seats.
Word has it that Coach Devaney gives the idea his full

Big Red in a big way. You know, the red suit, the red tie,

This week's Star of the Week pick was more difficult
than usual with the Colorado game showing the best team
effort to date. Bob Brown was chosen for his game saving
plays, but indeed there were others. John Dervin played
one f the best defensive games for a Husker this year with
five unassisted and three assisted tackles. Back Dave Thei

1962 TIGER TROUBLE Dennis Claridge fumbles then gropes for the ball last year against Missouri at Lincoln. The fumble, one three the Huskers
lost, was typical of the Homecoming game last year Nebraska couldn't do one thing right. Claridge and most of his mates are back tthis year to
avenge ine liger loss next Saturday.
Favored NU Hopes
To End Tiger Wins
For seven long years Ne
braska has not been able to
beat the Missouri Tigers in
a grid contest. Back in 1956
the Husker squad, then under
Coach Pete Elliott, pulled out
a 15-14 win.
Last year's 7-16 Homecom
ing loss represented the first
time Nebraska has even
scored in those years.
According to Comhusker
Coach Bob Devaney, Missou
ri's offensive attack presents
even more problems than that
of a year ago.
Last year Missouri didn't
have a passing attack; now
they have a good passer in
quarterback Gary Lane.
The Tiger signal-caller has
gained more yards in total of
fense than any Husker back.
He ranks fifth in the confer
ence with 487 yards. He has
hit 29 of 59 passes for 337
yards and has run for 150
yards m 64 carries.
Nebraska's Dennis Claridge
is right behind Lane, however,
with 460 yards total offense.
Claridge has passed for 345
yards and has gained 15 yards
Devaney compares Lane to
Air Force's slippery signal-
caller, Terry Isaacson. He
presents every bit as much
of a problem to defend
against, said the NU mentor.
The Husker coach feels that
the loss of Monroe Phelps
early in the Iowa State-Missouri
tilt definitely hurt the
Tiger offense but cautions
that Missouri has had all
week to build up an offense
without Phelps for this Sat
urday's clash.
"They have Phelps out but
we have three key players
who are doubtful," Devaney
The status of halfback Wil
lie Ross, tackle Monte Kiffin,
and center Lyle Sittler still
remains doubtful.
Kent McCloughan is con
tinuing to run from both half
back positions in case Ross
is not ready. Devaney said he
was pleased with Dave Theis
en's running at left half
against Colorado, but that
due to Theisen's problems
with leg cramps the past two
years he hesitates to depend
on him entirely.
Devaney reported that
Frank Solich, NU's punt and
kick-off return specialist who
was injured in the Minnesota
game will not travel to Missouri.

Does a man really take unfair advantage of women
when he uses r.ennen Skin Bracer? (
Ad depends on why he uses it.
Most men simply think Menthol-Iced Skin Bracer is the best
after-shave lotion around. Because it cools rather than burns.
Because it helps heal shaving nicks and scrapes. Because ft
helps prevent blemishes.
So who can blame them if Bracer's crisp, long-lasting aroma
just happens to affect women so remarkably?
Of course, some men may use Monneti Skin Bracer because
of this effect
