"All the kids did a good iob.

we got to the finals our boys

Francis Allen won the paral

March is near a gusty end, basketball, indoor track,
gymnastics and wrestling are over, and everyone begins
to think of balmy Spring days.
. Spring sports come to the fore as the tennis racquet!
'and golf clubs start to appear.
For fcotbaU Coach Bob Devaney, Spring football Is
"just around the corner."
April 6th, first Monday after Spring vacation, marks
the opening date for the drills.
A major reconstruction job faces the Husker mentor
if he is to repeat last year's Big Eight championship.
Nebraska fans are likely to have every faith that Devaney
is entirely capable of producing another champion.
In two short years, this wonder-man has brought Ne
braska from the depths of the Big Eight conference to
the status of a national football power.
Devaney's first year, 1962, saw the Scarlet and Cream
win eight of 10 regular season games, then whip Miami
36-34 in a Gotham Bowl thriller.
1962 proved to be just a warm-up season, as the Huskers
stormed to an undefeated conference season last fall, and
stunned a competent Auburn squad 13-7 in the Orange
Aa spring drills open, Nebraska and the nation will be
wondering "Can the Devaney do it again?" If he can't,
then no one else can.
