Zurnberge tosses out the first puck of the 1973 UNL
Hockey Club season
UNL Hockey Club drops
season opener to UNO
UNL Chancellor James Zurnberge skated onto the ice at
Lincoln's Pershing Auditorium Tuesday night and dropped the
opening puck of the 1973 UNL Hockey Club season.
But after Zurnberge left the rink things went poorly for the
Hu'.keis as they dropped their season debut 3-0 to UNO.
Tuesday'1; game, which followed a professional exhibition
between Omaha and Des Moines, was the first of 22 for the
Huskeis this season, according to Steve Jacobs, Hockey Club
treasurer and team member.
The club was formed two years ago to promote hockey on the
UNL tamHis, Jacobs said. The organisation's constitution states
that "a team will be derived to compete inter-collegiately."
The club was 6 6 last year against teams from Iowa State,
Kansas, UNO, Creighton and Omaha. They compete under NCAA
rules, including one that limits the team size to 19 players
although there are about 50 club members, he said.
"We ex.'ct that even more persons will come out later when
the weather gets colder," he said.
Although they compete on an inter-collegiate basis, the
hockey club receives no money from the athletic department or
from student fees, Jacobs said. Money for the team's uniforms,
equipment and travel expenses comes from donations, Corn Cobs
and special funding through the intramural department.
Since Lincoln has no ice-skating facilities available for practice
on a regular basis during the year, the club must travel to Omaha
to practice at Benson Park.
The ice at Benson was ready for practice only four days before
the UNO game, so the Husker squad had little practice time
before the opener, he said.
Home games usually will be played in Omaha's Ak Sar-Ben
Coliseum, Jacobs said.

By virtue of the two victories Acacia's season record jumps to
5 0. placing them fourth in the weekly Daily Nebraskan poll of
Clu'i A team',.
Acacia quarterback Brian Nelson said his team boasts ten
returners from last year's squad.
"Changing our offense so everyone now handles the football
helped more than anything else," he said.
''Our league is probably one of the weakest. Thus, we have an
easier schedule than some teams. However, I feel we can compete
with anyone," Nelson said.
If his team plays up to its capability, the All University title
could I xi theirs, he said.
"The important game for us will be our initial playoff match.
If we win that, we'll be mighty tough," Nelson said.

The Dept. of Recreation and Intramurals again is
sponsoring the Century Club. Open to the entire UNL
community, its object is involving as many people as
possible in a physical fitness program, according to
organizer Phil Sienna.
Century Club was organized last year in an effort to
recognize individuals who achieve outstanding
accomplishments in their fitness programs.
Members strive to accumulate, in the course of a
semester, either 100 miles of running or jogging, 20 miles of
swimming, 400 miles of bicycling or 100 hours of walking,
which must be done continuously for at least one hour.
Those realizing their goal are awarded a Century Club
T-shirt, and certificates are presented to anyone collecting
300 miles of running or its equivalent. Those with 500
miles or its equivalent have their names engraved on a
"Of the 200 Century Club members last year, 140 of
them obtained T-shirts," Sienna said. So far this year there
are 96 members, 32 of whom are faculty.
"I particularly like to see faculty involved. Hopefully
another 30 will join this semester," Sienna said.
"People who have never trained before are as at home as
anyone in Century Club. Last year we had two
grandmothers as members," he said.
Exercise can be done anywhere. Members are
encouraged to exercise in pairs or groups for safety and
psychological reasons, although one may participate alone.
Neal Robinson, assistant professor of journalism and
Century Club member, called the benefits of physical
Last year Robinson, a self-proclaimed "nonathlete",
amassed 646 units, placing him tenth in the club.
"How fast one runs doesn't really matter. The only
important statistic is the total mileage," he said.
Sienna said he hopes to dispel many of the false notions
women have toward running.
"Running cannot harm any woman's figure; it may only
enhance it," he said.
Sienna, himself a club member, last year gathered 1190
units, fourth highest among members. His wife Susanne
accumulated 21 5 units to finish 44th.
The general philosophy behind the founding of Century
Club is "motivating people already involved in an excercise
program to work toward a goal, and those who are not in
an exercise program to get involved in one," Sienna said.
