The Huskers came up with
three ingredients of a good
football team Saturday in
their remarkable 26-21 victory
over Minnesota: courage,
poise, and leadership. All
three ingredients were some
what in question before the
game, but not afterward.
Courage was shown by the
entire team when they didn't
Jet down after a seemingly in
surmountable lead of 21-12
was compiled by Minnesota
with only seven minutes thirty-one
seconds remaining in
the game.
Poise was shown by the en
tire team, and especially by
Fred Duda whose play calling
In this period was excellent;
by Freeman White who made
a fantastic catch on one of the
crucial fourth down plays In
the come-back drive; by Kent
McCloughan who made an un
believable catch of a de
flected ball for the winning
touchdown; and by Frankie
Sollch who ran beautifully all
day long.
Leadership, an especially
unknown quantfty before Sat
urday, was demonstrated by
Quarterback Fred Duda who
proved that he can pass ex
tremely accurately in clutch
situations, call appropriate
plays, and run the option with
facility that would make a
Bud Wilkinson quarterback
blush with shame.
Most importantly however,
Fred showed the team t ii a t
when the chips are really
down, and the team can de
pend only on its quarterback
to raise them to the occasions,
Fred is not only capable he
is fantastic!
The nationally televised
game was played in a brisk
wind which figured important
ly in the strategy. Nebraska
won the opening toss and
elected to take the wind. Min
nesota elected to receive. The
first quarter ended in a stand
off 0-0.
Minnesota scored first on an
eight yard pass play from
John Hankinson to gigantic
end Aaron Brown. The pass
play culminated a 65-yard
drive in which the Gophers
completed five of eight passes
against Nebraska's secondary.
Nebraska's first score
came when Fred Duda kept
from the one yard stripe. Lar
ry Kramer had recovered a
fine punt by Ron Klrkland

that the Minnesota safety
man bobblcd on his own seven
teen. Nebraska was bothered
by placement troubles and
Drum's kick was blocked.
Minnesota still led 7-6.
Nebraska soon recovered
another Minnesota fumble on
the Minnesota thirty-two. Ne
braska lost little time in capi
talizing on this break as Fred
Duda, running the option per
fectly, pitched to Kent Mc
Cloughan who roared down
the sideline like the Cannon
ball Express and made the
score 12-7 Nebraska.
The Huskers went for the
two-pointer and failed as a
pass went incomplete. The
half ended Nebraska 12, Min
nesota 7.
In the third quarter, facing
a fourth and one situation,
Minnesota Quarterback John
Hankinson looked to pass and
found his receivers covered.
It looked like he was about
to be smothered but all of a
sudden he ran to his left to
escape death and in the space
of 32 yards, he found himself
In the end zone. Score: Minne
sota 14, Nebraska 12 at the
end of three periods.
In the fourth quarter Ron
Kirkland got off a beautiful
punt of about 50 yards. Ray
Whitlow and Bill Crockett
pulled a high school reverse
on the catch and the results
make one wonder why it is
usually limited to high
schools. Crockett took advan
tage of many fine blocks and
darted 80 yards for the
score. After the placement,
the score was 21-12 in favor
of the Gophers. The game
looked all over but the (Min
nesota) shouting.
Nebraska and Fred Duda
rose to the occasion! After a
rare kickoff where Minnesota
attempted to catch its own
kick-off and interference was
called, giving Nebraska the
ball on the Gopher 4,r, Duda
hit Solich with one of the most
beautiful pass-catch combina
tions one could hope to see.
Forty-five yards and the
score. Remarkable as the
beautiful pass was the com
pletion of the extra point. Ne
braska 19, Minnesota 21 with
7:31 remaining on the clock
After fine defensive play
by the Huskers and especial
ly Walt Barnes and Sophomore
Scnkbeil, and a poor punt,
Nebraska took over the ball
on the Gopher 44 yard line.
With less than three minutes
remaining in the contest, and
a fourth and thirteen situation
Duda hit Freeman White on
a pass of 13 yards. Freeman
White made one of those shoe
string grabs that gave the
Huskers added life and hope.
With a play that must be
seen to be appreciated, Duda
hit Kent McCloughan with a
pass that was deflected off
the helmet of a Gopher de
fensive man. McCloughan
battled Into the end zone for
the winning score. Drum's
kick made the final outcome.
Nebraska 26, Minnesota 21.

Assistant Sports Editor
Joel Meier, intramurals di
rector of the University, h.s
a problem. Because of the
new stadium addition to Me
morial Stadium which forces
the marching band to prac
tice on the P.E. Fields nor
mally used for intramural
football, all of the flag foot
ball games must be played
this year at Agriculture cam
pus. This arrangement is feasi
ble despite the unhandiness of
the location except for the
fact that because of the lim
ited field space, only three
football fields are available
for use.
Former intramurals direc
tor Ed Higginbothan and
Meier have asked for addi
tional funds to equip the city
campus P. E. field with lights
which would allow the foot
ball games to be played at

Last year, the problem of
re-scheduling rained out
games and double forfeits
caused the season to become
extended far into the fall. In
fact, because the weather
became so inclement, late
last fall, a co-championship
in the "A" league was
awarded to Dental College and
Beta Theta Pi.
Almost two-hundred flag
football contests took place
last fall, and last fall games
were played on both city and
agriculture campuses. It
seems that some new action
is needed if the University is
to provide the same opportun
ity for the playing of the very
popular intramural sport.
In a meeting with the intra
mural managers of the vari
ous living units last week,
Meier submitted the problem
to them.
Besides the problem of lack
of fields, the flag football pro
gram faces the dilemma that
there are certain times where
double forfeits are common.
During homecoming the liv
ing units are usually caught
up in the flurry of displays.
This year the intramural man
agers voted to have games
scheduled during this period
with the understanding that
absolutely no forfeits may
take place.
The meeting left open the
question of elminating "B"
football altoghether for this
year. There may be simply
not enough time and space to
have this program.
The remainder of the meet
ing was used to discuss the
rules changes of this fall's
flag football and other aspects
of the intramurals program.
A new rule that is designed
j to eliminate the line plunge
I or delayed buck which
amounts to a copy of Mis
souri's famous "student body"
runs is the rule that lateral
must occur before the ball
can be carried over the line
of scrimmage.
No person can play intra
morals who is not a member
of a fraternity or a dorm. This
does not include Dental Col
lege, Law College, N.R.O.T.C.
or similar exceptions, howev
er. 1 No person can play on two
different intramural teams
during the year.
A group does not have to
have living quarters to win
a trophy for a championship
or runner-up. The group can
have its choice between a
trophy or a medal.
It was also announced at
the meeting that the place
ment for the intramural free
throw contest will start doday
and freethrows can be shot
from 4 p.m. until 5:30 p.m.
Qualifying must be finished
before Saturday, Oct. 3.
Sheldon Gallery Features
California Sculptor's Art
An exhibition of 38 pieces
of sculpture in wood, bronze
and terra cotta by a young
California artist, Robert Cre
mean, opens tomorrow at
Sheldon Art Gallery. The ex
hibition continues through
Nov. 1.
Cremean's work is known
in Lincoln through tne pres
ence of his "Swinging Wom
an" in the University collec
tion which was the gift of
Mrs. A. B. Sheldon in 1960,
according to Norman Geske,
director of the Gallery.
The "Swinging Woman"
sculpture always has drawn
considerable interest due to
the novelty of the artists tech
nique which utilizes a combi
nation of unusual materials,
some of them clearly adapted
from other uses.
Apart from technical ex
periment and innovation, his
sculpture establishes a whole
world of forms which is quite
distinctly his own, although
there are echoes of art his
tory in bis subject matter and
His culpture is definitely
three dimensional in concep
tion. Cremean's primary con
cern is with the human figure,
seen in various positions
which impose a consideration
of spatial movements such as
riding, swinging, or falling.
Cremean's art has so far
shown a continuous expansion
and growth and has earned
him a position among the
strongest of American sculp
tors of the younger- genera
tion. Geske will present a gallery
talk on Cremean's work at
3 p.m. Oct. 4. A television
program on the exhibition
will be presented at 7:30 p.m.

that Mick's column was to ap

It was too much to expect
that the printer, the news edi

of the stories, the sports staff
and typesetter would all get
together and read the instruc

Rood Awakening all the way
The sports staff hid in the
corner Thursday afternoon as
the glowering form of M i c k
towered into the office. The
sports editor fell to her knees
in mercy and received only
skinned shins for her trouble.
Twenty people stopped in to
say that Mick sure wrote a
different kind of column than
he usually does. Rick thought
so too.
As soon as the smoke from
Mick's anger had faded in the
general direction of the Crib,
the sports editor hiked over to
the Coliseum to apologize to
Rick, who spends most of his
time as Sports Information di
rector Don Bryant's right
hand man.
Rick wasn't in. The secre
t a r y mumbled something
about Minneapolis and we
knew we wouldn't see Rick to
offer apologies until the Bench
warmer. We knew that as long
as we had inaugurated the
Benchwarmer we would have
to award the crown to our
selves. Friday we made restitution
to Mick by running his column
with his name. Rick will just
have to write another column
and we will give him two by
lines. The Benchwarmer will be
sitting on the shoulder of the
Daily Nebraskan sports staff
this week.

Iowa had loaned Nebraka its

none. Thus the Iowa coach
