UCLA slashes Husker winning streak, 20-17

LOS ANGELES-None of them thought it could
happen. Even with one second remaining and the ball
40 yards from victory, Nebraska's football team
didn't think it could lose.
"I just felt like we would break from the huddle
and score on a 40-yard pass," said sophomore
quarterback David Humm. "We just couldn't be
Only two of them had ever lost a game at
Nebraska. Bill Janssen and Dave Mason were members
of the 1969 team that lost to Southern California and
"I never forgot that feeling of losing," said
Janssen, "but I just didn't think it could happen
The juniors and seniors on the 1972 Nebraska
team had been part of a football dynasty. After
winning back-to-back national championships,
plaudits came from every section of the country.
They won the Game of the Decade. Some said the
1971 Nebraska team was the finest assemblage of
college football players ever. They entered the 1972
football season as dehumanized as any athletic team
But things were brought back to earth at the Los
Angeles Coliseum Saturday night. UCLA slashed a
32-game unbeaten string and a 23-game winning
streak with a 20-17 win over the Cornhuskers.
Nebraska football is human again.
And it ended where it all actually started.
In 1970, Nebraska visited the Los Angeles
Coliseum to meet No. 3-rated Southern California.
Sports writers on the West Coast were still referring to
Nebraska as "big, but slow linemen," and "backs who
can run you over, but aren't elusive."
Nebraska and USC tied, 21-21. Nebraska knew it
could compete with the best in the college football

ASUN executives mounted a full-scale
attack on an administration-supported
proposal to raise tuition at a closed meeting
with the Board of Regents Sunday.
The two group$-ASUN and the
administration-are divided over a plan to
reduce resident tuition to $17 per credit
hour and charge students for each hour they
Currently resident students pay $18 per
credit hour up to 12 hours ($216). No
additional tuition charge is made until a
student reaches 17 credit hours. At that
point an additional $18 per credit hour is
According to Sam Brower, ASUN first
vice president, regents were urged to adopt
an alternate plan which would have students
pay $18 per hour up to 12 hours. For each
additional hour to 16 hours, students would
add $9 to their tuition bill.
An average student carrying 15 credit
hours presently pays $216 in tuition. The
proposed administration plan would cost
$255 Tho nlan rArnmmo nHnH hw ACI IM
would cost the student $243.
Regents appeared to favor the
administration's proposal until Bruce
Beecher, ASUN president, addressed the
board at their August meeting.
Brower said University administrators
have been trying to show regents that their
proposal is the best alternative.
One reason cited for the need for a
tuition increase is the change in state
residency requirements. There are provisions
now for former non-resident students to
become residents and pay lower tuition
The University administration is
predicting 20 per cent of the estimated
1,000 non-resident students will take
advantage of the change, according to
"All anybody can do is make a qualified
guess," he said, speculating the figure could
be lower than 20 per cent.
If 20 per cent of the non-resident
students who could meet residency
requirements make the changeover, the
University's tuition income would be
$145,200 less than the current per year
total, according to Daily Nebraskan
The tuition increase plan advanced by
administrators would cost UNL students an
additional $315,344 beyond loss sustained
by residency changes for the 1973-74 school
year. The plsn ASUN officers are urging
would raise the total UNL tuition bill
One reason Brower said he thinks the
administration is urging adoption of the plan
is because if the free tuition zone is not
eliminated by the regents, the state
Legislature will do so. j
Freshmen rap TAs,
accept large lectures
UNL freshmen are apparently more disgruntled about their
teaching assistants (TA) than large lecture classes, according to
results of a recently released survey.
The survey was administered last spring through freshmen
Five-hundred seventy-eight responded.
Nearly one-fourth polled said quiz sections (laboratory,
recitation and discussion sections) were not helpful.
Nearly one-third, 31 per cent, said they were dissatisfied
with the teaching assistants.
College of Arts and Sciences Dean M.D. George said it
"comes across very clearly" that more attention must be paid
to coordinating lecture and quiz sections, and to strengthening
the TA program.
George, whose office developed and funded the survey, said
structuring TA schedules so more may attend the lecture
sections that go with them may be part of the answer.
Often TAs cannot attend lecture sessions because of class
One expected complaint didn't materialize in the survey
results, George reported.
"We expected it to come through loud and clear 'I can't
stand large classes.' I just didn't see this," he said.
Forty per cent had no response when asked whether class
size adversely affected their learning.
Of the 80 separate courses cited by the remaining 60 per
cent, the largest percentage who noted their learning was
adversely affected by the class size was in Sociology 153.
There, 38 per cent complained.
Neither George nor Carolyn Lee, who compiled the survey
results, said they feet that figure was particularly sensational.
Lee said that based on the responses, the University's
