pfdare. Sports pages this week have more closely resembled a medical journal, but there is still quite an athletic event planned at Memorial Stadium beginning at 2 p.m. At that time Nebraska and Oklahoma, both with key players either missing or hobbling, will decide which team will wear the Big Eight conference football crown and represent the league in the Orange Bowl In Miami New Year's Day. This, of course, is assuming Oklahoma will defeat Oklahoma State next Satur Coriilmsker Title Hopes Given Boost Claridge May Start Nebraska football coach Bob Devaney, sounding as relaxed as if he were getting ready to pitch horseshoes instead of play Oklahoma for the Big Eight title Saturday, had good news for NU fans Friday morning. VI have encouraging news about Claridge (Dennis, the senior quarterback who has been Devaney said: "He was running much better Thursday night and if he continues to show improvement we'll run him with a unit." The unit would be the starting unit, Devaney said.

He also said that fullback Rudy Johnson's status was still doubtful. Ron Michka The passing games are not nearly so easily defined. Both clubs can throw better than given credit for. Butthe Huskers jw 0 ujd seem to have ah edge in that both Claridge and Duda show up better statistically than any of the Oklahoma throwers. But there is one' item in the Sooners favor.

Their halfbacks are strong threats at throwing and Nebraska has yet to use this weapon thus far this season. Lantz Rentzel is the leading thrower in this category. The similarities of the two clubs are endless. The most important similarity of alL however, is that each has lost but one game. The loser likely will receive a bid to the Bluebon-net or Gator BowL Vacation coln taverns and liquor stores to close after the game Saturday.

"We didnf request it or even suggest it. But we would like to know which of them plan on staying open so that we can adjust our officers accordingly aft er the game," he said. Carroll said that he will hold two shifts of officers on duty through night if the Huskers win, but will release one shift shortly after the game if the Huskers lose. In addition to the city police, Lancaster County Sheriffs deputies, state troopers'and 15 University of Nebraska police will also be on duty. A Journal check of downtown Lincoln taverns Friday exploded the rumor that many of them planned on closing after the game.

Only one tavern said it would close, and that will at 2 p.m., John Kirby this department. Nebraska's kicker early this sea- son was but since his injury Dave Theisen has been doing the booting. Their- averages are- identic cal and both have been better than 34 yards a crack. This is four yards better than Rick McCurdy. But Oklahoma has been getting much more mileage out of the punt returning department than Nebraska.

Assuming Jackie Cowan, the ailing Sooner halfback doesn't play, Oklahoma still has three players with fancy marks at carrying the ball back. The extra point kickers on the two clubs are all good. George Jannan of Oklahoma has missed only twice in 25 tries and John-son and Theisen have missed only eight times in 30 attempts for Nebraska. downtown Lincoln to the Governor's Mansion. Although the rally caught the Lincoln Police Dept.

a bit off guard, -Chief Joe Carroll said the students were "orderly and well-mannered, causing little property damage." Carroll said there were reports that some students had walked over the hoods of cars, "but there are always a few people like that in every crowd." The students, accompanied by a band, stopped traffic in the downtown area briefly on the march to the Jovernor's Mansion. At "the mansion, a learning that Gov. rank Morrison was out of the city, the students began their returnmarch to -campus where the procession broke apart.

What they will see possibly will depend on whether Nebraska plays injured senior quarterback Dennis Claridge or goes with fast-developing sophomore Fred Duda.

And whether Rudy. Johnson opens at fullback" or not. And whether Oklahoma star Jim Grisham is at full speed. The gamblers say they will see a three-point victory for Oklahoma. That's indeed questionable.

And if they do, the two things which will likely decide the issue are the kicking games and the one big pass play. Neither team boasts a great kicker, but the Huskers have a slight edge in those two days and that other professors said they will if Nebraska wins. The University administration twice in the past five years has dismissed classes because of major sports victories on the NU campus. The first time was after Nebraska's basketball win over Kansas University in 1958 and after the Huskers' 1959 football win over Oklahoma University.

Meanwhile, enthusiasm over the Nebraska-Oklahoma game Saturday at Memorial Stadium continued Jo soar Friday in. wake of a massive but orderly student rally through downtown Lincoln Thursday night.

Alternates By DUANE SNODGRASS "If Nebraska wins, will there be classes Monday and Tuesday?" That's a question most University of Nebraska students would like to have answered. But Friday, NU officials remained silent on an answer. Vice-chancellor Adam Breckenridge said he a "nothing to say" when the question was asked him. A similiar statement was made Thursday by Chancellor Clifford Hardin. Since only two days of NU classes are "scheduled for' next week because of the Thanksgiving holiday, optimism soared high among students that in the event of a Husker victory, those two days of classes would be dismissed.

How many 0 you men can recall ever getting a haircut without also getting some vital conversation about sports? Probably not too many times.

And that isn't likely to change. But there may be a new topic among Lincoln's Associated Master Barbers.

This group of civic minded citizens voted Friday to res cue Lincoln's amateur boxing program. It marked the end of a long period of frustration for the fighters who were 'orphaned several weeks ago when the longtime sponsor withdrew.

The announcement opens several avenues for the fight ers, the first of which will be to get a smoker program started immediately. Association president Jerry Rittenburg and his group thus become associated with one of the finest programs of its kind in the state. Lincoln has always made a sizeable contribution to the state tnd national Golden Gloves tournaments and will now be able to continue this project. Current plans call for pos simy three smokers prior to the Southeast Golden Gloves tournament here tentatively slated for Jan. 31 and Feb.

At least three of last year's Southeast champions are in training at this time and pos gibly three others will be on the scene before the first smoker. Three boxing clubs are staging workouts at the train ing quarters provided by Roberts Dairy.

They include Gene Acosta, Larry Emery and the Larchick Brothers. Mayor Petersen Issues Victory Proclamation Lincoln Mayor Dean H. Petersen issued a victory proclamation for the Huskers Thursday.
