R and I department goes independent
Ticket managers have one of two problems, They either have
trouble selling enough tickets or finding enough tickets to sell.
Nebraska athletic ticket manager Jim Pittenger admits that the
latter is more desirable "bccuase it's always nice to be able to pay
the bills." But this situation doesn't make the ticket manager
At the University of Nebraska, 87 per cent of the students
purchase season football tickets. That's the highest percentage in
The athletic department, although sacrificing four dollars per
ticket per game, has always held enough season tickets for
students to purchase. Students are admitted at $2 per game while
other tickets sell for $6.
This year, however, a problem was created when the athletic
department was told that there would be an increase of only
1,000 students this fall. The athletic department reserved enough
tickets th handle the 1,000 new students, but later reports
showed that an additional 800 students had enrolled.
The situation has left 700 students on a list still wanting to
purchase football tickets. Pittenger said Tuesday that those 700
students would receive tickets.. .at least for the last four home
games. If tickets will be available for the first three home games
was still not known.
Other students who already have home football tickets may
run into ticket problems for the migration to Missouri. According
to Pittenger, Missouri is allowing Nebraska only 3,000 tickets for
the Oct. 9 game at Columbia, Mo.
It was decided by the student senate a few years back that the
athletic department be required to reserve only 20 per cent of the
tickets for a migration game for students. That means that there
will be only 600 student tickets available for the Missouri game.
If students desire to go to the Kansas State game at
Manhattan, there weill be 5,000 tickets available. But none of
those will be reserved for students because the Kansas State game
has not traditionally been a migration affair.
Nebraska I-back Jeff Kinney can move into sixth place on the
all-time NU rushing chart (since 1950) with 45 yards against
Oregon in Saturday's opener. If Kinney can perform the task, he
will drop NU defensive end coach Bill Thorton to the No. 7 spot.
Kinney has 1 yards while Thorton ended his fullback career
at Nebraska with 1,328 yards.
Quarterback Jerry Tagge can take over the No. 1 passing spot
(from Bob Churchich) with 45 yards. Tagge heads into his third
year with 2,891 yards throuh the air.
For the sixth straight year, the Kansas Jayhawks will be
represented in the running back department by the Riggins family
of Centralia, Kan. Third and last of the Riggins' brothers is Billy,
a 190- pound sophomore. Junior Riggins, a pro baseball player in
the California Angels minor league system, was a Jayhawk
halfback in 1966-67-68. John Riggins, a rookie with the New
York Jets, played with the Jayhawks in 1968-69-70.
Nebraska tightend Jerry List, despite an outstanding
sophomore season, will still be looking for his first touchdown
when the 1971 season opens. List hauled in 23 passes for 278
yards last year including 63 yards in the Orange Bowl.
Terry McMillan, former Missouri quarterback who lead the
Tigers to bowls in 1968 and '69, speaking about new Missouri
head coach Al Onofrio: 'Onofrio has unlimited football
knowledge. Coach Devine was the organizer, the planner, the
handler of men. Onfrio made the car. Devine sold it."

"We're going to have to
prove ourselves, and I think we
can," said Dan Stellar, director
of the revamped and
Department of Recreation and
Intramurals at the University
The department, which was
formerly under the direction of
the Department of Student
Activities, heads into the
1971-72 shcool year with new
personnel, a new location, new
equipment and facilities, and a
fresh outlook on its purposes
The chief new face is
Stellar, who came from Doane
College to head Nebraska's
Recreation and Intramurals
program, now headquartered at
Using his background in
administration and five year's
experience As Dean of Student
Affairs at Doane, Stellar will
co-ordinate the activities.
The office of Coordinator
of Men's Intramurals is headed
by another newcomer, Phil
Sienna, the former assistant
director of Recreation and
Intramurals at Oklahoma. All
of the organization and
planning for the competitive
intramurals programs for men
will be handled by Sienna.
Last year's Recreation and
Intramurals (R& I) director,
Kermit Mc Murray, is now
Coordinator of Recreation and
assistant director of the
department, andwill handle an
aspt of the Nebraska R & I
program that has been given
increased emphasis this year:
non-competitive sports and
A mong the projects
Mc Murray envisions for his
office are R & I Department
sponsored ski trips to
Colorado, hiking and canoeing
trips, a glassblowing course
which several students
expressed an interest in, and a
possible tennis clinic.
McMurray and Stellar both
pointed out that the success of
such activities and the number
of projects that will be
undertaken by the Recreation
Office depend on student
interest and involvement.
Both men urged students to
"come down and talk" about
anything they might be
interested in, because the
chances are that someone else
will be interested in the same
activities. A lounge area with
magazines and coffee has been
set up in the new office for
anyone who wishes to stop in.
The office of Coordinator
of Women's Intramurals will
once again this year be filled
by Nancy Sonner, who, in
addition to planning all the
competitive athletic offering
for women, will also
coordinate the year's
Another big boost for the R
& I Department program will
be the new athletic facilities
available for their use and the
ability to check out equipment
ranging from camping gear
complete with stove to
equipment for almost any
sport one might be interested
in, according to Stellar.
The new facilities are an
area at 17th and Vine, which
will include eight lighted tennis
and basketball courts and four
intramural football fields, and
an area between Harper and
Smith dormitories which will
include a grass area for
unorganized activity, 10
lighted tennis courts with
basketball facilities, and
Astro- turf putting greens.
You are an individual...
A unique person unlike any other.
Do your clothes reflect the real you? Or are you
dressing as others want you to dress? If you are, today's
the day to do something about it.
Come on down to the Hitchin' Post and Wooden Nickel,
both at 144 North 14th. There you'll find the real
clothes for that real you. The best of fall's great clothes.
Good feeling clothes that say you're feelin' good.
The Hitchin Post and Wooden Nickel care about you.
The real you.
