Ticket crackdown cracks up
The Board of Regents earlier this month
ordered a clamp-down on pate-crashers and
b lack -market" ticket sales lor Nebraska
football games this year, but the crush Saturday
was more than the campus police could kindle.
"Despite some help from Lincoln police and
the sheriffs office we ran out of manpower,"
said Gail CJade, chief of campus security and
AT LEAST two campus policemen suffered
minor injuries trying to stem the flow offence
jumpers at the Nebraska-Minnesota game, but
hundreds of unauthorized spectators
nonetheless crowded into Memorial Stadium
along with the stadium record 6X.1H7 paying
"They are getting real desperale," (Jade said
of the gate-crashers.
As usual, most of the fence-jumpers were
younger children, but there were older
teenagers and probably tickct-1css freshmen
included in Saturday 's attackers.
SOME OF THE illegal spectators used
effective strategy to decoy harried policemen
and ROTC students assigned to stem the tide.
In plains warfare tradition the attackers
would send a small contingent of crashers over
the fence and swarm over en masse when the
law officers pursued the decoys.
Spectators in the south stadium enjoyed the
tactics and maneuvers outside the football field
more than the pre-game activities inside the
stadium as they cheered the gate-crashers on to
victory after victory over the badly
outnumbered security forces.
Meanwhile, in front of legitimate en 1 ranees lo
the stadium, more affluent fans could buy their
way illegally into the stadium with comfort and
dignity, as student and non-si udent hawkers
massed outside the east stadium with tickets
and ID cards held high in their bands.
