Northern Iowa rallied from a 14- point fourth quarter deficit to score a 41-38 first-round playoff victory over Eastern Washington in Cedar Falls. Quarterback Erik Meyer threw for four touchdowns, two each to Eric Kimble and Raul Vijil. 20 Years Ago Nov. 30, 1995 A rally at EWU to draw atten- tion to a recent series of rapes on campus drew approximately 200 people who marched from Pence Union Building to Showalter Hall. The proposed staff cuts at Cheney City Hall became reality amidst a projected 13 percent bud- get cut for 1996. The first reading of that budget was held at a City Council meeting.

Strong citizen participation was lauded by Cheney Mayor Gerald Blakely in recent discus- sion of the city's proposed 1976 budget who said this was, "The most productive budget hearing I have experienced." Former Cheney Blackhawk Del Spear, a junior, became the career leader for touchdowns scored with 19 for the University of Montana. Spear also repeated as the Grizzlies' leading rusher, but no numbers were reported. 50 YearsAgo Dec. 3, 1965 The Cheney City Council awarded a $30,323.50 contract to Holman Drilling of Spokane to drill a 550-foot well in Sutton Park near Washington Street in Cheney.
