Sport By This coming weekend, another Big Eight city-Colum-bia Mo., to be exact-will be hit by approximately the 57th coming of the Redcoats and a typical interview with one of these red-clothed persons might go like this: , - Q-Wno invented football? A Well, I think It was some guy named Jumbo' Steam or something like that, but the sport wasn't real-ly perfected until a lew years .ago. by an Irishman, who came from out of the mountains. qHow long have you been wearing those red duds? . A Ever since they resumed playing football at Nebraska after having given up the sport for a few years in the late 40s and through the 50s. An Attention-Getter Q What caused them to resume football after all those years?

A-The school noticed, a lot of colleges were getting their names in the paper for. being investigated by the . NCAA and Nebraska officials decided they should do something to reapa bit of this free ink.- -w Q What was their first step in that direction? A They brought this smiling Irishman in and as soon as lie hit the state, he told the people that he didnt plan on winning every game, just enough to be. investigated. iQr-Did he succeed?" ifou bet, Di nrnuari ha is tin miracle man. I think we could TT lUt. 11 &WTVU V " v ..... - have gotten someone else, who could have gotten us investigated sooner than that.

But we have some very friendly bankers and loan companies in town. My bank has gone a third mortgage on my house and the bank doesn't know it, but a loan company has a second mortgage on the same" house. Q-Isn't that sort of risky ? A It sure is, but we Huskers go all out. Let me tell you about the time we gambled with a fourth and one from our 29... Q Do you take your wife to all the games with you? A Generally, although one time I told her I was going hunting, but instead I went to the Colorado eame atBoul- when I left the house. That s one of the great advantages of wearing red people don't know whether you're going fox-hunting or to a football game.
