Dickey in the dirt
as Wildcats topple
in Big Eight clash
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17,
University of Nebraska students
Peaceful protest moves
marred by militant action
An estimated 300,000 persons
peacefully paraded their protest against
the Vietnam war at the Washington
Moratorium observance Saturday. About
100 University of Nebraska students end
faculty were among the crowd.
Trouble flared five blocks away as
about 5,000 demonstrators threw rocks
and bottles at the Department of Justice
and then at po ice lines. Demonstrators
retreated when police fired tear gas.
Another marr to the peaceful massive
antiwar rally was the trouble amid a
match organized by the Youth Interna
tional Party lYippies) to protest the
conspiracy trial of the Chicago Eight.
Dr. Ivan Volgyes writes Hanoi;
4We are not aiding their cause'
by Sara Schwleder

North Vietnamese support of the anti
war demonstrations has been rejected
in a letter to the Hanoi delegation writ
ten by a University of Nebraska pro
fessor. The letter by Dr. Ivan Volgyes, NU
political science professor, to Xuan
Thuy, Hanoi's chief negotiator, in reac
tion to North Vietnam statements back
ing American anti-war efforts.
The letter asserted that "We, honest
Americans, citizens of the U.S., are in
disagreement . . . with our President
. . . This is a quarrel in which, we
feel, you have no business intervening."
Volgyes indicated that although pro
testors are "morally repelled by the
corruption and brutality of the Saigon
government." they also "do not consider
the government of North Vietnam and
the Viet Cong worthwhile supporting."
Volgyes ended the letter by noting
that "Those of us who demonstrate for
ending this war do ttot want to destroy
America, the government of the U.S.
or even its President; we just want
our country to follow course . . .
which is bused on justice and truth."
Volgyes expounded upon his letter
Sunday in an interview with the Daily
helped canvass Lincoln Thursday and
David Dellinger, 54, a defendant In the
Chicago trial, had taken a microphone
at the rally to urge the thousands to
participate in the Yippie march.
Demonstra'ors smashed a window at
the Department of Labor and hauled
down the American flag at the Justice
Department and replaced it with that
of the Viet Cong. Police replaced the
Rock throwing and tear gas followed
and helmeted police formed a wall
across Constituilon Avenue and advanc
ed slowly to force demonstrators away.
When demonstrators tried to regroup,
"We don't need Hanoi's help and we
don't want their help either," he said.
"We are not aiding their cause."
Volgyes felt that only a very few anti
war protestors are Communists.
"The peace movement and North
Vietnam agree that the U.S. must get
out of Vietnam, but similarities end
there. Our argument is with our govern
ment who doesn't want to be influenced
by public opinion."
Volgyes said that he doesn't think the
demonstrations will have an effect on
foreign policy because, "Nixon just
refuses to listen."
Volgyes was also concerned about re
rent statements made by Vice-President
Spiro Agnew. He asserted that Agnew's
remarks were tinged with communist
"In communist countries, people are
allowed to freely express their opinions
if they happen to favor government
policy. When Agnew said that protestors
"Should be discarded like rotten apples.
he was saying that those who disagree
with government policy must be done
Volgyes said Agnew 's remarks reflect
elements of a backlash that will further
repress dissent if it b allowed to continue.

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Nearly 10,000
Big Red fans journeyed south Saturday
for the Kansas State-Nebraska clash and
their cry throughout the game was
"Dickey in the Dirt." The Nebraska
defense responded with a 10-7 victory.
The Huskers stopped the Purple
Power, as well as the Big 8's leading
quarterback Lynn Dickey, in what
everyone thought would be a high scor
ing affair. The Wildcats had been
averaging 35 points a game, but the
game turned into a bitter defensive
struggle with both teams being stopped
several times near the goal line.
The Husker defense, which is improv
ing week by week, stopped KSU players
seven times behind the line of scrim
mage. The biggest was a nine-yard loss
sustained by quarterback Dickey. At
other times, the Black Shirts forced
Dickey to scramble for his life.
"Lynn Dickey is much quicker than
people give him credit for," NU Coach
Bob Devaney said. "He's almost as good
at finding his receivers under pressure
than at any other time."
It was Dickey who nearly turned the
game into a Wildcat victory.
With little more than a minute re
maining, KSU took a Dan Schneiss punt
on the K-State 40. Dickey passed for
12 yards, then for 18 yards and the
Cats were on the NU 30.
On fourth down at the 27, Dickey pass-

police again resorted to tear gas. But
the winds drove the fumes back on
the police and to the Justice Depart
ment, sending Atty. Gen. John N.
Mitchell running for cover.
During the confusion the
demonstrators replaced the American
flag with that of the Viet Cong and
then ran off with the American banner
so that police could not replace it.
While the moratorium marchers mov
ed peacefu ly police broke up a fight
between SDS members and members
of the more militant Weatherman faction
near George Washington University.
Thousands rallied in protest of the
war in Golden Gate Park in San Fran
cisco. It was the largest rally of the
year ou the West Coast with the
mobilization committee claiming 250,000
and police estimating 85,000 people.
The rally followed an orderly somber
march from the San Francisco Bay
waterfront where 10,000 early arrivals
mobi ized. Led by 20 Vietnam war
veterans carrying a banner reading,
"Not One More Dead." the crowd grew
steadily during the seven-mile march
through the city to the park.
At the rally, Ralph Abernathy. head
of the Southern Christian Conference,
got a big ovation when he said-
"Who is the one calloused individual
who is going against the current of
history and social change to reinforce
the myth that American supports the
war? Nixon's the one. We catuiot rest
until the American government learns
that the people of the world will hav
no part of imperialism."
In London, about 1.000 demonstrators
carrying antiwar placards marched In
front of the American Embassy. In Paris
police picked up potential marchers by
the hundreds preventing all but a couple
of small demonstrations.
In Randolph, Mass., 600 people mostly
teenagers, jeered 90 peace marchers
Friday night. About 7$ policemen kept
the two groups separated.
In New Orleans about 40
demonstrators marched to the fifth floor
of the Federal Building and found the
Selective Service office locked. About
300 staged a brief rally outside the
J lu halfback Ma.k Herron who drop
ped the ball, but officials called
Nebraska for interference and KSU had
a first down on the 15.
With 16 seconds left, Dickey passed
complete to flanker Bob Long who tried
desperately to get out of bounds. But
KSU had no time outs left, and the
clock ticked off the final eight seconds
before the Wildcats could run another
The white-shoed Dickey, who admits
that his hero is New York Jets
quarterback Joe Namath, completed 19
passes in 35 attempts. The running game
netted K-State only 73 yards.
Devaney praised the Husker defense.
Tackle Bob Liggett, according to
Devaney, had his finest game. Other
people like tackle Dave Walline, end
Sherwin Jarmon and middle guard Ken
Geddes were superb.
Even though the final score and
statistics don't show it, K-State started
out as if they would move the ball
almost at will.
Two early Nebraska drives resulted
in missed field goal attempts by NU's
Paul Rogers. Then KSU took over and
moved 80 yards in 12 plays for their
only touchdown of the game.
Several runs by tailback Russell Har
rison, a native of Omaha, and a pass
interference call on the six yard line
against Husker co-captain Dana
Stephenson highlighted the drive.
That and several other calls by the
ASUN may hire
lawyer for study
The Associated Students of the
University of Nebraska may soon hire
a lawyer to investigate the current
method of allocating student fees.
A reliable source who wished to re

hired, will be used to determine exactly

responsibility of students to work con

ahead, we must know where we stand

Randy Prier, member of the ASUN
Legal Rights Committee, said Thurs
day that a proposal is under study
to hire a lawyer to represent students
in emergency situations.
The lawyer would be retained by
ASUN and students would be able to
call him when the necessity arose.
Prier continued. A lawyer might also
be hired to handle legal problems for
students that do not Involve arrest

"A number of other universities

officials raised the ire of Dev&aey, who
promised after the game to write a
letter to the Big 8 commissioner.
"I did not agree with some of the
calls," he said. "Although they were
strictly judgment calls by the officials."

right tackle for the touchdown, and Max

and a field goal try from the 10 was
wide to the right.
Later another Wilcat drive was blunted
when All-American candidate Ken Ged
des intercepted a Dickey pass and
returned it 24 yards to the NU 45.
The second half ended with KSU's
kickoff man Bill Bridges failing on a
50 yard field goal attempt.
"People had trouble with field goals
in that open end of the stadium,"
Devaney noted. The open end of the
new KSU stadium created a twisting
wind which resulted in two missed field
goals by each team in the first half.
The Huskers began to move in the
second half with sophomore Van
Brownson at the controls and junior Dan

misconstrue what we are trying to do,"
the source said. "This is not the attempt
of students to make trouble.
It is a valid and necessary function of
students to work for a better University.
"There is no reason for anyone to
fear investigation if there is nothing
wrong with their activities. We feel there
is a definite need to know how student
fees are allocated and hiring a lawyer
may be the only way to find out."
The lawyer would also be used for
other functions necessary to ASUN.
ASUN is a corporation and thus has
certain powers under its articles of cor
poration. However, these have never
been clearly defined.
"It will probably be necessary to have
legal assistance in defining exactly what
the powers and limitations of ASUN
are." the source added.
The source said that there is also
no clear definition at present of what
rights student organizations have in
relation to other University activities.
The lawyer would also be charged with
defining these relationships from a legal
Committee on Student Affairs.
The Council has been created
as parent body of the subcom
mittees, and plans to review
and revise the boards, one Coun
cil member said.
Several student members
also indicated to the Daily
Nebraskan they plan to in
troduce legislation to authorize
studying several important
areas of student life, including
the University's court systems,
student self-determination and
equality of rules governing
possibility that we will be able to
do them here."
He said the Legal Rights Committee
has been studying the student
government's capacity to provide
funds and researching the project with
the National Student Association
Legal Rights Director.
"We hope to get this thing going
during the second semester," Prier
He added that the project was not
funded in this year'3 ASUN budget,
but that it might be able to draw
on the student government's general
fund. "We hope that we can get the
service funded on a regular basis next
year," he added.

22 yard line. A 39 field goal by Rogers
put the Huskers on the scoreboard.
Early in the fourth quarter the
Huskers had a fourth down on the KSU
14. Rather than try a field goal, Devaney
elected to go for the first down. "We
thought we would catch the defense off
guard," Devaney commented. Brownson
threw a pass behind Schneiss however,
and the Cats took over.
On the first play of the next series,
however, Schneiss ran an option lateral
34 yards to the KSU 14. Brownson hit
Schneiss with a pass at the three. After
. two plunges by tailback Jeff Kinney,
Brownson pushed in for the score.
Roger's extra point ended the day's
Devaney had nothing but praise for
Schneiss .The 6-2, 222 pound junior
fullback has not started a game this
year, but he rushed for 92 yards on
12 carries, a 7.7 average. He also caught
three passes for 44 yards.
"Dan is not as speedy as Mike Green,"
Devaney said, "But he is fast, he keeps
his feet moving and he has good power."
Schneiss also had his greatest day
as a punter, keeping KSU constantly
in a hole with his 49.1 yard average
on seven kicks.
According to Devaney, Schneiss did the
"finest job of kicking in a game since
we have been at Nebraska."
Devaney also observed that Saturday's
victory, the 101st of his 12 year career,
ended almost identical to the first win
as a head coach at Wyoming in 1957.
"We were playing Kansas State in
the first game of the year," Devaney
recalled. "We beat them something like
12-7 but the game ended with them
on our three yard line."
Devaney will shoot for victory number
102 next week at Norman, Okla. As
a Cornhusker and Wyoming head coach,
Devaney has never beaten the Oklahoma
Sooners at Norman.
"Oklahoma has always been tough for
us," he observed. "They have Steve
Owens, a Heisman Trophy candidate and
sophomore quarterback Jack Mildren,
an excellent scrambler, although not
quite as good a passer as Dickey."
Owens, who ran for 201 yards against
Kansas Saturday and scored three
touchdowns, can run over and through
people, Devaney noted. He gets even
tougher when hit and he is elusive,
the Husker mentor said.
Owens is the leading scorer in college
football, and also one of the top five
rushers as well.

The Nebraska football team seems
almost assured of getting a bowl bid
following the 10-7 victory over Kansas
State Saturday. The question is 'which
It appears that Notre Dame might
be the key to the NU bowl scramble.
The fighting Irish have followed a no
bowl policy in recent years, but in
dicated some weeks ago they might
change that policy.
If Notre Dame decides to accept a
bowl bid, they would possibly play Penn
State in the Orange Bowl. That would
mean Tennessee and the winner of the
Texas-Arkansas game would probably
meet in the Cotton Bowl. The loser of
the Texas-Arkansas clash would pro
bably meet Missouri in the Sugar Bowl.
In such a situation, Nebraska would
probably be pitted against Florida in
the Gator Bowl on Dec. 27 In Jackson
Nebraska is also thought to be high
on the list of the Sun Bowl and the
However, if Notre Dame does not go
to a bowl, the Orange bowl is expected
to go with Penn State against Missouri.
That would leave the Sugar or Cotton
Bowls open for a possible Nebraska bid.
The situation should be somewhat
clarified Monday afternoon. NCAA
regulations forbid any formal bowl bids
from being extended before noon CST,
"If the bowls want to talk to us
we'll listen," Nebraska Coach Bob
Devaney said Saturday. He added that
he felt his players would like to go
to a bowl.
