After a limited market ing campaign, the red-colored drink faded away. Now, t he Coors distributing com pany is trying again this time with a cola. "Cornhusker Cola" appeared in several Lincoln stores after Labor Day. The drink, with cans designed for each Big Eight team, is also on the market in each respective state. The crimson and crcme colored, 1 2-ounce cans feature Herbie Hus ker and the 1984 schedule and sell for 50 cents. A Big Eight Pack featuring cans dedicated to each of the confer ence schools also is available for $7.99. Billy Henry, the Norman, Okla., branch manager of Coors Central told the Oklahoma Daily that the cans could become collector's items. Ken Johnson, Coors dis tributor for Nebraska said the winning ways of Nebraska foot ball should help sales.

When he competes internationally, he participates in the 10-meter tower and three meter springboard. Castro did not know if he would participate in this year's games until midsummer. "I have not been back home for two years now and have not been diving for them for that long either so I was not sure if I could participate in the trials," he said. Diving coach Jeff Huber was pleased with Castro's performance in Los Angeles. "He only missed one dive," Huber Joel SsrtoreDaSly Nsbraskan Deting in said. "He showed a lot of compete tiveness and if he would not have missed that one dive, he would have been in contention for the finals." Huber "discovered" Castro in 1880 while he was competing in an international meet in Canada and it was then that he began recruiting him. Nebraska wasn't the only school to recruit Castro. He said at least five and maybe six ether schools recruited him. Among those interested in Cas tro were Michigan, Michigan State and Indiana Castro has goals both in inter- 1 i . 1 I .

The Sports Beverage Company of Illinois began marketing the cans after an experiment with Illini beer and Badger beer in 1983. "We had some pretty good suc cess with those products," said Rick Higginson of the Champaign, 111., company. Higginson said each Big Ten school also has its own special can. Johnson said major outlets have been slow to pick up the sports cans, but he was confident that business would improve as the season goes along. The Big Eight Pack and single cans of Cornhusker Cola are available in Lincoln at Jack's Two, Wendelin's and the N Street Drive in. An employee at N Street said sales are slow except for game days. "If it were beer it would sell bet ter," she said.

"The 1988 Olympic Games are possible. It depends on a lot of things and I am willing to try for it, but I just do not know how far I will be able to go with it," Castro said. He also said his main short term goal is to participate in the World Games. His main goals in international competition are to participate in the University World Games and the Pan-American Games. "If I go to the Pan-Am games, then. I will know that the Olym pics are possible," he said. J His goals for his last year as a Husker are to try to perform bet ter in the Big Eight and make Ail American in NCAA Division One competition. Castro's participation in the Los Angeles games will, Huber said, "help his diving because he will be willing to work harder. I think that he knows how good he is though it takes a lot of time for divers to realize that." Since the Olympics, Castro has taken a small break from diving to prepare for school. "Nebraska is a good school and I am happy to be able to partici pate in a good program like Ne braska has," Castro said. - Htssxd ksux4 mamSl t tuJ i - i f i 3 M avion IQiLindlQlitlincdri 9 H V t'i ' 1 i 11 1 H Reg. 3.00 each NOW $2.50 12 Dozen Reg.
