Not Serious Commentary
Considerable research has gone

Kinsey Report on Female Sex
Previewed in Redbook Article
The forthcoming book, "Sexual
Behavior in the Human Female",
Morris L. Ernst and Davied Loth
viewed in a recent article by
by Dr. Alfred C. Kinsey, is pre
appearing in the May issue of
Redbook magazine.
Under the title of "What Kin
sey Will Tell", the authors be
lieve Kinsey's report will show
that the sexual development of
women is slower than that of
men. Only about twenty-five
percent of the females have ex
perienced the climax of emotional
excitement by the time they are
fifteen, as compared with ninety
two percent among males. Wo
men's experience in this respect
does not become comparable
with men's until the age of jiearly
thirty, the article states. -Educational
This problem poses as a diffi
culty for our educational system,
which is geared to handling
students by age, the article con
tinues, and goes on to declare
that women, unlike men, retain
their maximum sexual drive over
a period of five or six years.
The Redbook article says that
"petting" increases with the
amount of education attained, but
it states that one third of college
women who marry never attain
complete sexual satisfaction. This
is true, the article says, despite
the fact that in recent years, col
lege women have been taught

ever sponsored by the organiza

field of photography.

Council Issues Last Call
For Organization Reports
The Student Council student
activities committee today issued
a final warning to campus or
ganizations which have failed to
turn in their constitutions and
activity reports.
Report forms were mailed
during March to all active clubs
on the Council's records. The
reports call for the following in
formation; requirements for
membership, number of mem
bers, initiation fees, dues, special
assessments, officers, headquar
ters, purposes, aims and activi
ties. "
The Student Council constitu
tion prov ides for the annual
check of organizations. Groups
which fail to comply with the
Council's directives can lose ths
that it is possible for wives to
achieve the same goals as their
mates in this regard.
Sexual Relations
A greater precentage of women
who-, have had a grade school
education or less have sexual re
lations, and when ttie modern
college graduate fr "s to achieve
the satisfaction with her mar
riage partner, the authors state
that she is likely to blame 'either
him or herself. This' dissatisfac
tion is said to contribute to the
Increase in divorces.
One of the greatest destroyers
of marriage, the magazine article
declares, is the inability of a
couple even in the intimacy of
matrimony to tell each other
what they really feel about sex.
The article also discusses the
effect on sexual behavior of
changing customs, the relative
frankness of men and women in
talking about sex, comparison of
what is sexually stimulating to
each of the sexes, and the inci
dence of homosexuality among
women. Also the differences in
sex behavior patterns of the un
married woman as compared to
the bachelor, the variations in
sexual patterns in the light of
differences in race, build and
color, the attitude of women
toward children's sex activities
and the differences in the sex
activities of boys and girls are
pointed out by authors Ernst and
Theatre to
'School for Scandal'
With only five rehearsals re
maining until the opening per
formance, cast members of the
University Theatre's fifth play of
the season. "The School for
Scandal," are putting the finish
ing touches on a peculiar type of
movement and dialect.
To be presented May 8, 9 and
10 at the Nebraska theater, the
comedy written by Richard B.
Sheridan, will highlight a form
of characterization which typi
fies eighteenth century Britons.
Strongly satirical, the drama
will poke fun at the stereotyped
actions of oversophisticated Lon
don inhabitants.
Dallas Williams, director of the
Theatre's final play of the year,
said, "The play will be produced
in the style and manner of the
period in which the play was
written. We are not attempting
to be at all realistic in the stage
work. We are attempting to use
the style of acting that was used
in 1777 in London. England," he
"Our modern style," added
Williams, "is quite different. It
is realistic and more straight
forward. However drama of the
eighteenth century stresses arti
ficial and unrealistic action.
British Dialect.
"A unique feature of the com
edy," related Williams, "is the
use of British dialect which will
be employed throughout the en
tire play. It has been difficult to
attempt to train 15 midwestern
dramatists to use the British
"In order to obtain the correct
diction, a native of England,
Rita Shaw, has he'ped by serv
ing as diction coach," said Wil
liams. She has also been of great
value to us through her theat
rical experience."
"One of our greatest prob
lems," stated Williams, "has been
to affect the manners of the peo
ple of this period. In Sheridan's
time, they behaved quite differ
ently. Men and women both
were very affected in their
movements. Men were so sophis
ticated and serious in movement
such as bowing that they ap
peared almost feminine."
It is necessary in the play to
protray over-exaggerated man
ners that still appear virile and
not feminine. In this period, men
dipped snuff, wore long silk
handkerchiefs, and lace on their
clothing. Both men and women
wore powdered wigs.
Cast members are:
Sharon F r i t z 1 e r as Lady
Teazle, Mike Shanahan as Jo
seph Surface, Donald Sobolik as
Sir Peter Teazle, Don Nichols as

Jack Wenstrand as Careless, and

"The play is full of situations
which prove embarrassing to the
characters in the play," said Wil
liams. "Some of the scenes pro
duce complications which are
excruciatingly funny to the au
dience." Plot
"Many intricacies make for
extremely clever comedy," com
mented 'Williams. "The plot of

"Joseph Surface, supposedly a
moral young man, actually dupes
Sir Peter Teazle into thinking
so when he attempts to win the
hand of Maria, a fair young
lady living under the guardian
ship of the Teazles. However,
there is method in Joseph's mad
ness since he knows that Maria
will fall heir to a fortune at the
ago of 21."
Schemers Lady Sneerwell and
Snake, a professional forger, plot
to place Charles Surface in dis
favor with Sir Peter Teazle.
Snake forges a letter to make it
appear as if Charles was writ

is quite affectionate in its na
ture and it later falls into the
hands of Sir Peter as Lady
Sneerwell had hoped.

Palmer Reports
Business Loss
In Small Towns
Many small Nebraska com
munities face possible extinction
unless they "face squarely the
issue of declining population."
That is the conclusion reached
by Dr. Edgar Z. Palmer, head of
the University business research
department, who has just com
pleted a study of factors respon
sible for the decline of business
and population in Clay Center
and in Clay county. This survey
was made at the request of Clay
Center business men.
Seven specific things "which
need to be done to renew the
fading life of the small city, as
exemplified by Clay Center,"
were suggested by Dr. Palmer.
His recommendations are as fol
lows; Suggestions
1. The diversification of agri
culture in the surrounding areas,
especially the more intensive
types of farming such as live
stock production, should be stim-'
2. A city-wide program for the
improvement of store fronts and
renovation of interior displays
should be inaugurated to make
the city's stores as attractive as
the same sized stores in larger
3. The city should be adver
tised widely over the county by
means of billboards and illumin
ated signs, especially at strategic
corners where signs would helo'
lead trafiic into the business dis
trict of the town.
Improve Retail Trade
4. The town should make an
effort to overcome any specific
weaknesses in the retail trade
5. The towns should try to en
list the aid of the state division
of resources and industries and
other agencies in attracting new
small factories to the city.
6. The towns should stimulate
local men's efforts to establish
7. Full co-operation of all city
leaders is essential to any efforts
for the goods of the city. The
cities where this is possible prob
ably are the ones which survive
bs the general population level it
lowered in the region.
