I: t-B LINCOLN srXlAT'JOntXAL AND STAR j y , I iff .- We received a note from a coward the other day . . He signed himself "L. Skragg" without an address. There i3 no such name in the city directory. - It is usually best to ignore this anonymous-type letter,, but this one stirred up more than a normal -, armwnt of disgust. L. Skragg doe not believe in aid to footballers, nor the methods of giving such aid. He said, "A hearty "congratulations . is in store for all the men of the Big Red Club (alias such . things as the '0 Street gang,' and ' the Century Club) who had their Erst meeting of the season last Thursday.' Again, our state is to, be rewarded by a gathering of these public spirited citizens . who meet each year for the purpose of giving illegal financial aid to the football coach and the team of Nebraska University." For the benefit of our mys- -terio-t-.-. itiudslinge)--. wih ..... the sneaky prose, the Big Red Club was in existence just one year. It was formed by the Nebraska Alumni Association for the express purpose of helping finance the new football scholarship program. This was done through. University officials and was entirely legal. The Century Club no longer exists. It was not a part of the University, but was a groiipof "Nebraskamnrtro helped athletes entirely on their own. The group has be"en disbanded. The meeting L. Skragg is mis- JnfQnie(Labouiw.a group of " University boosters who had dinner with the football squad, to welcome the boys lo Lincoln. If was held en the campus. All outside help for the athletic department will now be chan- " ncled through the CorhhuSker Touchdown Club, which is being formed. This group will have membership for all interested " Nebraskans: " It will be intror -porated and under the direct supervision and control of University of Nebraska officials. University Boosted - Another shot from L. Skragg declared that "A few prudes always raise the old objections that the giving of this money is illegal, against all rules of the Big Eight Conference, and what is perhaps more important inimical to the best interests of the University of Nebraska and its students. But of course it doesn't matter to these gentlemen" how ":: many educations are ruined on the professional gridiron or how Omaha Soulli, Central Iii Bis; Power Fight By JIM RXCLIN A crucial ciasSf ot umaita'povbers ...highlights the upcoming prep ,oot- baE week. t Omaha Central and Omaha South mix in a battle that could i see the winner emerge as favorite An the Intercity League Central- opened crashing Lincoln .uT"i' turned the tables on Creighton Prep and won by a touchdown.

On the contrary, the only really important thing is that these men are entertained in their own selfish way every Saturday afternoon." .. As has been explained, all money spent in the athletic pro -gram is spent completely within the rules of the Big Eight and the NCAA. The wielder of this blue pes does not say what . harm ia caused by football. If he thinks football is the ruinatioa of the sehooifr,- luuW check- with I "sonie of the most successful institutions which have had and will have excellent football programs. You ca hardly say schools like Michigan, Michigan State, low a, Oklahoma, Notre : Dame, California and so many others have been ruined by a successful football program.

Skragg, college football has done much to put its house in order. . Culmination -of plans for the Touchdown Club will see another step in the right direction. I'm sure that Nebraska's athletic department is working closely with the University administration in all matters pertaining to aid to athletes. And fans of Nebraska, contrary to L. Skragg, can be extremely proud that their athletic department Is not dependent on tax funds, as are so many schools, but runs on a self-supporting basis. And if having loyal backers who put their money where their mot-th is, is bad, then L. Skragg and I disagree. We've got too offer no better solution, no better program, and don't sign their letters.

BONDED FOR QUALITY EVERVESS "CUT" 51 In Sparkling Woter REXT PARTY Fall ! . IWiUe IJ-j ALo Hdy f . Brttif t 2SS i PPSUQLA Bomm CO. um.,- naii Washington State College's football team pays & visit to Memorial Stadium Saturday to open the 1957 season for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. And the situation is loaded with many ironies and memories for NU fans, Only once before have the Cornhuikers and the Cougars met on the. fields of battle, in 1920. But Nebraska coach Bill Jennings is no stranger when it comes to tangling with the Pacific Coast Conference team. In- 1938 Bill was a sophomore at the University of Oklahoma and the Sooners played the Cougars, lacingUiem, 28-0. Jennings remembers t game well be broke his leg. Bill won't say anything about it, but he might feel that broken leg prevented Oklahoma from winning the 1939 Orange Bowl game. The Washington State game was the last of the regular sea son and the all-victorious Sooners sailed up against Tennessee in the Miami classic and were whitewashed, 17-0. . Bill Absent It's significant that Jennings who alternated between wing- back and-nd on "the- great- Sooner team was absent, still I homa that yegtolheloss ! to Tennessee. The Sooners eked out a 7-6 win over Rice in the opening game and Tulsa tallied once in a 28-6 loss. Otherwise the Sooners were invulnerable,. blanking Texas (13-0), Kansas (19-0)', Nebraska (14-0), Kansas State (26-0), Missouri (21-0), Iowa State (10-0), Oklahoma A&M (19-0) and Washington. State (2W. . On that Nebraska team were sophomores who two years later would carry the Husker colors into the Rose Bowl against Stan-ford. Adding additional interest to the', upcoming Washington State . game is the strange quirk of fate which tosses twO-debutir.g coaches against a common foe in their respective openers.

' The 19.0 Husker-Washington State game was the finale for Henry F. (Pa) Schulte later to win fame as a track coach as bead football coach. And he departed on a sad note as the Cougars nipped the Cornhuskers, 21-20. Washington State rallied for 14 points in the final quarter to overcome Nebraska's 20-7 advantage. The Cougars were sparked by L. Gillis who tallied three touchdowns. CUl'u " was tabbed at the -time -as -'great line plunger, end and off-tackle plunger as ever played on the Nebraska Geld." Husker touchdowns were scored by Fred Dale, Leo Scherer Sr., and Ernie Hubka. Capt. Bill Day kicked two extrapoints. Members of the starting team . were; Clarence Swanson, left end; John Pucelik, left tackle; Wade- Munn,-left- guard; .Day. cent"' ,?ful?D' n?' guard; Adolph Wenke, -right tackle; Scherer, right end; Dick Newman, quarterback; Verne looreTTefnraTiDabk; DaleT right-halfback; Floyd Wright, fullback. Dale scored when he intercepted a pass and thrilled the crowd of 6,000 with a 75-ya-d gallop. Scherer traveled 40 yards " arid" Hiibka three. Sub Scores Hubka, now a Beatrice attorney, came off the bench to register a TT). Other subs that day- were Bub Weller, Chick Hartley and Andy Schoeppel, later to become governor of Kansas and currently U.S. Senate? from that state. PS: When you talk about the "dumb football players of the old days," skip the 1920 Husker team. Success in later life was commonplace for these fellows. The list includes a state supreme court justice (Wenke), governor and senator (Schoep-pef); two attorneys (Hubka and " Wright l,a -dentist f Pucelik prominent realtors or insurance "men (Day7ewrrnannd Scher-er), successful businessman (Swanson), bank examiner (Wade Munn) and college science 'professor" tUaleJ.
