Predictions j
on the line Saturday
by Randy York
Ncbraskan Sports Editor
Both Nebraska and Kansas
State football tears have
been winding up all season
for Saturday's showdown in
The game pits a surpris
ingly solid Wildcat outfit
against a Nebraska club with
,i revenge motive. The
Huskers, dumped 12-0 by In
state in their Homecoming
date last year, must win to
keep alive their Big Eight
Conference title aspirations
as well as prospective bowl
Likewise, Kansas State,
with a mathematical chance
to capture the league cham
pionship, seeks a post-season
bowl berth. Representatives
from the Gator and Liberty
bowls have indicated an in
terest in each team.
The Wildcats, who have
p ressed nationally-ranked
Penn State and Missouri to 3
point decisions, feature an
explosive offense and an ex
perienced defense.
Quarterback Lynn Dickey,
mentioned as a possible
Heisman Trophy candidate,
triggers the Wildcat machine
which has averaged 35 points
in eight games.

and passing pacesetter.
Dickey has passed for 1,821
yards for a 227.6 yard per
game average. However, he
also leads the league in
throwing interceptions,
misfiring 17 into enemy
hands in 276 passes.

the key to beating the
Husker harriers
to run in NCAA
The Nebraska cross country team's schedule
has been expanded to include one more meet this
The Huskers, after a vote of the squad Wednes
day, will be competing in the NCAA championships,
according to Coach Frank Sevigne. The meet will be
held on Nov. 24 at Manhattan College in New York
Sevigne said that there are no requirements to
be met by individuals or teams to compete in the
NCAA cross country meet like there are for the track
"It's up to the individual school to decide if they
want to compete," he said.
This will be the first time a Nebraska cross
country team has competed in the NCAA champion
ships, Sevigne said.
The Huskers will take a second place finish in
the Big Eight conference meet and a 31 dual meet
record to the national meet.
Sevigne said he would take his top five runners
to New York: Pete Brang, Greg Carlberg, Jim Lang,
Mel Campbell and Bob Tupper.
"The guys are real anxious to go," he said. "If
everyone is right we should be able to finish in the
top 10."
Sevigne indicated there wa some hesitation
involved in making the decision to compete because
of the status of Tupper.
"He has been hurt and hasn't been running up
to par," Sevigne said. "This was the question mark
in deciding if we would go or not."

K-State also owns an im
pressive rushing game
despite Dickey's affinity to
passing. Mack Herron has
accounted for a 58.0 per
game rushing average while
Mike Montgomery has 335
net yards, a per game output
of 41.9. Fullback Russ Har
rison, the ex-Omaha Tech
standout, is responsible for 34
ground yards per game.
The Huskers thus must
meet a balanced rushing at

game. Both K-State coach

the game to develop into a
passing duel.

Although Nebraska's bas
ketball team returns 97 per
cent of the offense it gener
ated last season, Husker boss
Joe Cipriano still says de
fense remains the key to a
high conference finish.
Cip foresees a tough pre
conference schedule as more
of a challenge than a head
ache. Much of his optimism
in facing such foes as Du
quesne. Houston and Arizona
is rooted to the Huskers' de
fensive improvement.
"We seem to be improving
in every practice defensive
ly." he says. "If we keep
improving like we have been,
we're going to be a much
better defensive team than
last year."
"What everything boils
down to is basic fun
damentals," Cipriano says.

Purify water
with the fiber
that made
men whistle.
Nylon. Reverse osmosis.
A fiber that started making girls' legs more beauti
ful some 30 years ago.
And a process that's been around a lot longer.
But when Du Pont scientists and engineers look
at them in a new way, they combine into an idea that
can change the world.
Reverse osmosis is a purification process that
requires no phase change. It's potentially the cheap
est way to desalinate water.
Du Pont's innovation ? Hollow, semipermeable ny
lon fibers much finer than human hair. Symmetrical,
with an outer diameter of .002 inch and a wail thick
ness of .0005 inch, with an accuracy of manufacture
maintained at close to 100. Twenty-five to 30 million
of them encased in a precisely engineered unit 14
inches in diameter by 7 feet long.
The result: a semipermeable surface area of about
85.000 square feet the size of a 2-acre lot and up
to 10,000 gallons of desalted water per day.
So far "Permasep" permeators have been used
experimentally to purify brackish and polluted water,
and in various industrial separations. But the po
tential to desalt seawater, too, is there.
So Du Pont scientists and engineers are even now
working toward improved fibers, units and plant
designs that should make it possible to get fresh
water from salt at a price that any town or nation
can afford.
Innovation applying the known to discover the
unknown, inventing new materials and putting them
to work, using research and engineering to create
the ideas and products of the future this is the
venture Du Pont people are now engaged in.

Satchell Paige couldn't have said it any better
when he once offered, "Never look behind; someone
may be gaining on you."
The Huskers' are tied for the league lead with
Miccnnri uith 4.1 rpfnrrl Kansas State, saddled with
two conference setbacks, still has a shot at the crown,
providing the Huskers and Mizzou stumble in their
last two games.
It's doubtful that he was talking about Kansas
State's revitalized football program, but the wisdom
can nevertheless apply to the Wildcats.
Nebraska looked behind K-State somewhat last
year. The Wildcats capitalized, registering one of the
biggest conference upsets in the last decade, a 12-0
shutout in Lincoln.
Nebraska, however, can't afford to look behind
this season. K-State has changed roles and, perhaps,
for the first time last week was caught looking behind
itseif. Oklahoma State dampened the Wildcats' title
hopes with a 28-19 hijack at Stillwater.
Stumbling is not completely out of the question
either. This corner missed the Oklahoma State- sur
prise last week despite advance warning from fellow
staffers John Dvorak and Steve Sinclair. .
The blunder lowered the season batting average
to .767 with 33 correct picks in 43 guesses. This week's
effort calls for:
Nebraska 27, Kansas State 17 Both teams be
lieve in life after death. Each entertains bowl bids.
That is, providing it wins. K-State has been flashy,
but, at times, defensively deficient. The Husker Black
Shirts get stingier every week. Lynn Dickey and Mack
Herron were somewhat frustrated last week. Saturday
they will be frustrated.
