Tough Defensive Tilt
On Tap Tomorrow
From the Stick
... by rick akin
Just rambling on this week. Some jottings thought up,
some swiped, some prompted by this Homecoming Week,
designed to lighten the burden on the library, flunk out
freshmen and snatch up colds so we can walk around to
night for something to do. Never did like College Nights
The Series should have provided enough thrills to last
you through the basketball season. I don't know who
won, but its been a 61st session of clutch play by both
league champions. My early predictions: The Cards in
six. . .
Speaking of basketball, it's arrived and Coach Joe
Cipriano and aides have a black gadget with an orange
top, that's supposed to develop Cornhuskcr rebounding.
That's off the backboards but it may help that rebound
to Big Eight respectibility, started last year with a 5-9 tie
for sixth. NU was 1-13 in conference play the year be
fore. . .
Just I'd pass along how defensive right end Langston
Colemen chose Nebraska, thanks to Wally Provost's Mon
day World Herald column.
Langston's mother worked for the family of Ted Sor
enson, aide to the late President Kennedy. Sorenson's
brother Phil, a Lincoln lawyer up for lieutenant governor
in the Nov. 3 fiasco, befriended the Washington prep star
on visits to his brother. In their talks Phil Sorenson helped
Coleman make up his mind. With the red tape of scholas
tic requirements out of the way, Langston hitchiked all
the way from the Capitol City to play ball.
How glad we are. He pressured South Carolina quarter
back Dan Reeves last Saturday like a dog after a felled
pheasant. . .
For those that tuned KFOR for the Iowa-State-Nebraska
fray, had one of those always-thought-of-but-never-happening
incidents. Announcers Dick Perry and J i m
Huge, exHusker right end, differed on the air over who
scored on of NU's two touchdowns. Tube Rookie Huge
won. . .
Speaking of broadcasters, somebody poked Lindsey
Nelson in the Benchwarmer a few weeks back, stating
he voiced a partisan game on the side of Minnesota in
the Huskers poised 26-21 victory.
Having spotted for the respected NBC sportscaster
at that game, I can assure this Nebraska-prejudiced soul
that Lindsey Nelson has many more things to worry about
during the broadcast then to cheer for somebody. His is a
fine sportscaster, unbiased to all, a gentlemen in his field
Onto the Huskers. . . Kansas State offers a scare after
being edged only 7-0 by a highly touted Missouri club.
The Wildcat offense hasn't rolled yet, but let's hope it
doesn't Saturday. Count on that defense that held South
Carolina to a mere three yards rushing for a NEBRAS
KA 21, KANSAS STATE 20.
Now after reading this, don't you wish you'd voted to
abolish the Rag in the Student Council opinion poll.
The Cornhuskers will put
an e 1 e v e n-game winning
streak on the line Tomorrow
against Coach Doug Weaver's
Kansas State Wildcats.
The Homecoming week con
test will see a tough defen
sive contest as Kansas State
held powerful Missouri to a
single touchdown last week
end, while losing 0-7.
Kansas State is a much im
proved team this year as an
increased emphasis has been
placed on football by that
school. They own a 16-14 vie
tory over Colorado who held
Oklahoma State to a 14-10
victory last weekend.
Their other defeat is to
Wisconsin by a respectable 7
K-State boasts the nation's
top punter in left halfback
Doug Dusenbury. The senior
upped his average against the
Tigers last weekend with four
punts for a 49-yard average
Going into the Nebraska
game, he has toed the ball
thirteen times for a 48.2 yard
Coach Doug Weaver is ex.
Dusenbury . . Top punter
pected to have his defensive
unit intact Saturday. The
Wildcats' defense ranks sec
ond in the conference to Ne
braska. The line includes standouts
Bill Matan, a 231-pound jun
ior end who was the top line
man agaihst Missouri, and
Bob Mitts, a 204-pound senior
guard, who continues fine
play well each week.
The last Kansas State vic
tory over Nebraska was in
1959, when K-State produced
a 29-14 win. In the series
which began in 1911, Nebras
ka holds a 37-9-2 won-loss
margin over the Wildcats.
The Huskers go into the
contest relatively healthy.
Bobby Hohn is on the doubt
ful list, but should be ready
for Colorado on the 24th.
More action should be in the
offing for Frank Solich who
saw limited action last week,
and Harry Wilson. Lighthorse
Harry pleased the coaching
staff last week with his im
proved blocking and over-all
back Bob Churchich goes in
to this Big Eight encounter
with a little more experience
and can be expected to at
tempt to throw more short
After Ten Years
A Kansas minister recent
ly cleared his conscience for
In 1951 he lived in Manhat
tan and attended a basketball
game on a student pass.
Naturally, only students are
allowed to use student tickets
to attend Wildcat games in
Apparently weighing heavily
on his conscience for these
past years, the matter was
cleared when the minister
wrote James A. McCain, K
State president, to explain the
illegal entrance and to en
close $1. This dollar and the
one he obviously paid to ob
tain the student ticket
amounts to the cost of a
general public ticket.
McCain sent the dollar to
the K-State athletic depart

Boeing's world leadership in the jet transport field is an indication of the
calibre of people you'd work with at Boeing. The forward-striding attitude re
sponsible for this leadership has, since 1916, provided a steady succession
of pioneering achievements: first twin-engine, retractable-gear, low-wing,
ill-metal airliner; first four-engine, pressurized airliner; first modern, high
performance bomber; first large swept-wing, multi-jet bomber; and, of
course, America's first jetliner, the 707, and the 720 and three-jet 727.
(Right now we're designing a variable-sweep wing supersonic transport,)
Boeing is one of the nation's major manufacturers of heavy transport heli
copters (Vertol), and for more than two decades has pioneered most of the
world's applications of the small gas turbine in aircraft, industrial, marine
ind vehicular fields.
And the space age? Boeing's contributions here include major contract
responsibility for the Minute-nan ICBM and NASA's Saturn V Booster the
bunch vehicle destined to send America's first lunar landing team to the
noon. We're also working full blast in all other phases of space flight,
Including a manned earth-orbiting laboratory and a lunar orbiter.
Projects underway in Boeing's extensive Scientific Research Laboratories
tncompass basic and applied research in celestial mechanics, solid state
physics, nuclear and plasma physics, terrestrial and space flight sciences
and allied human factors.
Engineers and scientists at Boeing work in small groups, under supervisors
picked for ability to inspire and promote the ideas of their associates.
Individual initiative and ability get plenty of exposure that way. (The com
pany encourages graduate studies at leading colleges and universities near
Boeing installations.) Boeing is an equal opportunity employer.
We're planning to Interview engineering and science seniors and graduate
students on campus on the date listed below. So drop in at your campus
placement office and arrange an appointment. We'll be looking forward to

Yearlings Tackle KS
Nebraska's freshman foot
ball team, riding a five-game
victory string dating back to
1961, opens its 1964 season
Friday afternoon against Kan
sas State at Memorial Sta
dium. Game time is 2:30 p.m.,
and ticket booths will be open
on both the East and West
sides of the Stadium. Admis
sion is $1 and tickets will be
available only at the Stadium
prior to the game.
Coach John Melton will
field a big club against he
K-State yearlings. The first Melton, whose clubs have
unit line averages 219 and the won four-straight terms the
. . n, 1964 Husker freshman team
backs 203- "a pretty good club."
"We will not platoon the
same way the Varsity does,"
Melton said. "At this stage
we are most interested in
finding out just who our best
football players are. So we
don't want to spend a lot of
time on offensive or defen
sive specialties. We'll go both
ways with our players. We do
plan to substitute by units, but
they'll be two-way units."
"Albert Fierro has been
throwing the ball very well
and looks like he will be a
fine quarterback," Melton
said. "And Charlie Winters,
for example, has been look
ing very good as a running
back. We have a lot of play
ers who appear to be fine
football players, but we'll
know more after the test from
Mr. Thomson . . . .please! "
Please tell me how you manage
to make me look, so great on campus.
The only thing I can't pass now
it a crowd of boys. Those vertical
stretch pants follow the
sleek line of most resistance.
And guarantee the least resistance
on campus. Then, total recorery
(only the pants, Mr. Thomson, not the boys).
The reflex action of your
proportioned stretch pants
is second only to the reflex action
of that Psych major I've had my eye on.
And the fit! Mr. Thomson, please,
how did you get them to fit so well?
I adore you, Mr. Thomson!
