Rally Draws 3,000
Senior Staff Writer
Chants of "Beat Oklahoma" and All the Way to Mi
ami" resounded through the city of Lincoln last night as
an estimated 2,000-3,000 students paraded in a spontaneous
Lincoln police escorted the horde as they made their
way from the campus, down "O" street and to the Gov
ernor's Mansion.
What started out to be a snake dance, planned by the
Kappa Alpha Thetas, broke into mass bedlam as stu
dents filled with enthusiasm demanded more action. A
crew of seven bandsmen led the group as they went
from living nnit to living unit, growing in size. The rally
was planned to end at Selleck Quad where there was
singing and cheering for the football team.
When the team did not appear, chants of "All the
way to O Street" broke out and the group headed out of
the Quad court.
From Selleck, the rally headed down 16th street to
O Street where Thursday-night traffic had to be stopped
to allow passage of the growing mob. After a two block
tour of O street, the still-unsatisfied students started north
on 14th. The idea of visiting the Governor's Mansion grew,
and soon students were yelling for leaders to lead them
By this time Lincoln Police were escorting the stu
dents in order to prevent accidents from occurring. There
was no attempt on the part of the police to turn the stu
dents back.
Upon gathering on the Governor's lawn, the mob de
manded an appearance of the Governor and sang Ne
braska songs. After learning that Governor Frank Mor
rison was in Omaha, chants of "All the way to Omaha"
broke out. However, this did not materialize and the
group made its way back to the campus where they gath
ered in front of the Nebraska Union for more cheering
and singing.
Most of the rally up to this point had been executed
at a run, and dripping, worn-out students were witnessed.
However, the group was still not tired enough to quit and
headed to the Coliseum where police asked them to break
up and go back to their living units.
Most of the group drifted back to the Union and from
there the weary enthusiasts broke np and headed home.
No major injuries have been reported, and the only
property damage seen occurred when a few students ran
on top of cars.
The Lincoln police had received no complaints last
night, and Det. Capt. Robert Sawdon had praise for the
students for confining their actions to enthusiasm and do
ing no damage.
"We are glad to help the students blow off steam,"
said the captain. "Our only concern is that nobody gets
hurt and there is no property damage. If tonight is an
example of their conduct, more power to them."
"We were real pleased and don't have a complaint in
the world," he continued. "We know this is going to hap
pen and hope that all demonstrations are this orderly."
Sgt. Kenneth Markle of the University Police estimat
ed that about 3,000 took part. He pointed out that a lot
dropped out along the way tut that the enthusiasts kept
picking up more recruits on their journey. "They ended
up with about 500 high school kids," he said.
The Thetas, overwhelmed at the success of their ral
ly, said that they wanted to do something to help pro
mote campus spirit. They had received permission from
Curt Siemers, University activities coordinator, to have
the snake dance and rally at the Quad. They credited
Karen Fejfar with the brainstorm, which they said grew
out of a house retreat last Friday.
The Thetas had asked the seven band members to
have dinner with them and started the rally after dinner.
The bandsmen were Roger Hudson, Tim Fischer, Doug
Adler, Dean Rasmussen, Mike Stafford, Jim Johnson and
Eric Elster.
'Day Off Decree Delayed
Many rumors have been circulated through the campus
about an extra two days vacation if Nebraska beats Okla
homa Saturday.
Vice-Chancellor Adam C. Breckenridge stated that it
would be presumptuous to say anything on the matter un
til after we have won the game.
Breckenridge felt that it would add undue pressure to
the team if it were announced before the game that a va
cation would follow if we won. Because of this, no an
nouncement will be made until after the game.
and a bon-fire will be lighted into which a "Sooner" will
be thrown.
The Saturday noon rally will be ushered in by the
parading of the Victory Bell around the campus. Stu
dents are to gather at the northeast entrance to the
field house. The team will arrive at 12:15. The Pep
Band will play at both rallies.
These rallies are just two of the many signs of spirit
on the NU campus.
On Thursday night students spontaneously gathered to
watch the team have its last practice before the Okla
homa game. Signs have been up all over campus during
the week with proclamations such as "Tap the Bud . . .
"the Sooner the Better," and, "2 Reds Clash, Big Red
Will Flash." Orange tennis shoes have been prevelant
on coeds' feet, and orange clusters and orange mums
also have taken over the campus as the orange fever
reaches its height.
In honor of the big game a new fight song has been
written by Dr. Royce Swain, an Omaha dentist. Students
are asked to sing this song as the band plays it on
Saturday at the game. The lyrics are:
Stand up and shout Nebraska
It's Huskers that we cheer
Let's tell the world we love our state
Let's let 'em know we're here.
We'll win her every battle
No matter what the test
Stand up and shout Nebraska
Nebraska, yes, yes, yes.
The track team will wear their Big 8 championship
sweaters for the first time to the game in order to en
courage the football team to win their Big 8 champion
ship game. Nebraska took the Indoor Track title last
March to earn the sweaters.
Meanwhile the Sigma Alpha Mu bonfire, lighted last
Monday, burns steadily.
