These phases express an idea that the present coach
ing staff has instilled in the football team until nothing
else seems important.
It is not an unusual idea; these phrases are platitudes
that have been worn out by athletic teams throughout
the nation. It just so happens that Bob Devaney and
company exploit this better than most. This idea is the
importance of winning.
Has the football fever ever made you wonder whether
It really makes any difference if certain athletic events
go one way or the other? Will life go on if Nebraska is
struck by Minnesota?
If a student rpally thought about it, he could prob
ably come up with plenty of items influencing his life
more directly; instructors won't give harder exams be
cause a Nebraska defeat shook the campus.
Why not be practical and worry about things that
really matter?
While we're being practical, consider these juicy
items: The University Athletic Department boasted a to
tal operating income of about $1,100,000 for the fiscal year
ending June 30, 1966. This income was almost entirely
from football; no other sport finished in the black.
If Nebraska football were now a losing venture, it
would seem likely that the finances of the athletic de
partment would also suffer.
This money brings top athletes from all parts of the
nation, builds all sports, not football alone, and adver
tises the University of Nebraska. This is hardly the
budget of a large corporation, but its effect is impressive.
Why should we want the team to win? The athletic
department spends $300,000 annually for grant-in-aids; it
should be almost a department of the Nebraska Founda
tion. This winning team advertises Nebraska; it makes
the nation take notice of a rapidly-advancing university.
Across the state, the public is made aware of the
importance and needs of the University; it seems unlikely
that the building boom on campus is completely inde
pendent of football.

Gophers Gunning To End
Bevanefs Big Ten Wins
Minnesota's Gophers will
invade Memorial Stadium
Saturday remembering
there's always a first time
for everything.
Minnesota will attempt to
become the first Big Ten
crew to defeat a Bob De
vaney Comhusker football
team after five earlier fu
tile attempts.
Minnesota has twice bow
ed to the Huskers, 14-7 in
1963 and 26-21 in 1964, but
both those contests were de
cided in Minneapolis. The
last visit the Gophers pad
to Lincoln was in 1960 un-
der the Bill Jennings era
when Minnesota tromped
Nebraska 28-14.
Even with those past two
victories the Huskers have
a long way to go before the
Minnesota-Nebrsska series
is equal. The Gophers hold
a commanding 29-8-2 lead
in the series stretching back
to 1900.
Those past statistics and
scouting reports of Minneso
ta's opening 13-12 victory
, over the University of Utah
last Saturday have caused
Nebraska coach Bob De
vaney to eye Saturday's Lin
coln opener with caution.

after talking with assistant

"Minnesota is a big foot
ball team," Devaney con
tinued. They are tough to
run against, especially in
side, but Utah ran well
against them outside."
Utah rushed for 225 yards
against a defensive line
averaging 237 pounds and
passed for 153 yards, bring

Devaney also said that
Minnesota throws the ball
well and "they throw it al
most as much as they run
with it.
The Gophers gained only

up 129 passing as they

University Of Nebraska Students Have
Access To Over 200,000 Paper Back Books
Mr. MacDougdl, General Merchandise Manager for Nebraska Bookstore
states that "during the past year over 200,000 paperback books have been
purchased and shipped to the Lincoln, Nebraska location. This is in addition
to the normal large stock maintained in the paperback gallery, upper level
of the store. Thousands of these books are shipped to other stores through-
out the country. However, a large portion of these books are retained and
made available to the University of Nebraska students at greatly reduced
prices of 19c, 39c and reductions as hgh as 75'
A sale is now in progress with thousands of books available at 39c each. 7
These books represent a fair number of the 43,300 paprback book titles
now in print.

NU Wins Soccer
Sports Ealtor
There's nothing like starting
play in a brand new league
with a win.
The University soccer team
can attest to that after their
opening victory in the Mid
west Soccer League's first
season with Sunday's 74 boot
ing of the Offutt Air Force
Base team in Omaha.
"It looks as though we have
. a lot of good players to make
into a team," Tim Rickard,
club president" said after his
team divided scoring honors
among four players in the
opening game triumph.
Steve Mwamba, an inside
left forward from Zambia, led
scorers with a three goal hat
trick, while Rickard's two
goals and one apiece by John
Deyloff and Mehmet, Unsal
provided the victory margin.
The local group rebounded
from a 2-1 deficit to gain a
3-2 lead after the first 4fi-min-ute
half and then banged
home four goals in the second
half to seal the victory.
"At times we looked good
and at other times, we looked
scrappy," he said," although
we started off in a much bet
ter position than last year."
"Now we've been going a
year, while last year when we
began we started with noth
ing," he explained.
The club has 20 members,
including natives of Algeria.
Biafra, England, Kenya, Sing
apore, Uruguay and Zambia,
but only 13 players journeyed
to Omaha Sunday.
"We also played four Amer
icans who had never played
much before they joined the
club," he said, "but now
they're good team members."
He said that the club's goal
ie Bob McMann from Massa
chusetts has played high
school soccer and "performed
well against the Omahans."

Three Goals As
The team practices twice a
week for their ten-game home
and away schedule in the six
team amateur league.
Teams forming the new
league include JFK College in
Wahoo, Offutt AFB, the Oma
ha Kickers, the Omaha Inter
nationals and Des Moines.
Although the team practices
at the field behind University
High School, they play their
five home games at a field
provided by the Lincoln Job
Corps at the former Lincoln
"We're grateful to the Job
Corps for the field," he said.
The team erected goal posts
and marked the field with
lime last spring, he said.
Although six players re
turn from last year's team,
problems still plague the soph
omore squad.
"Our main problem is that
we have to pass the ball a
lot quicker," Rickard said.
"This is something funda
mental to soccer."
Moves Up
In Ratings
Last Saturday's Husker
open date and several upsets
have moved Nebraska up
several notches in the week

The Huskers are rated
sixth in United Press Inter
national's poll and seventh
in the Associated Press rat

active top ten teams were
either beaten or tied last
AP also lists Colorado in

The Bobo, the

27, 1967
With an open date Sunday,
the team will face the JFK
team Oct. 4 at 4 p.m. at the
Lincoln AFB field.
While posting a 2-3 record
last year, the team blanked
JFK 7-0 and also beat Omar
ha's Creighton University
team, while dropping a . con
test to Des Moines and two
games to the Kickers. .
"It's hard to say how we
compare at this stage, with
last year's team, but when we
blend together into a team,
we'll be all right," he said.
Like several other Univer

the University, although it is
recognized as a club by the
Nebraska Union. .
Without University financial
support, the soccermen must
