"All I've got to say is that I'm going to get out of the way."
This was the comment of one University woman Tuesday night
as she prepared for the annual onslaught of indignant males at Coed
It was a good thing that she did too because shortly after
ward an estimated 500 "rowdy pranksters" stormed into the
theater and scattered throughout the building. Lincoln and campus
police then began the all-night job of flushing them out.
The male invasion, which one city policeman called "high school
stuff," brought fights, costumes, songs and laughs with it.-
Several male students dressed in bizarre outfits in order to gain
admittance. They used wigs, bobby sox, .skirts, sweaters' and cos
metics to get some definitely realistic results.
But this was not the only way that men tried to crash the
gates. About 7:30 p.m. a gang of males paraded through the streets
to the theater, where they shoved their way past policemen, ushers
After the Initial breakthrough, one policeman dusted himself
off and said "I . wish I had my watch and badge back." "They
came in one door and I pushed them out another," he added, "I
must have pushed the same fellows out at least four times."
Then with a shrug of his shoulders, he explained there were
"just too many of them."
The first break-in, the largest single "attack," came before the '
Follies started and the program did not commence until most of the
obvious males were evicted.

One male who had spent half the performance under a seat,
walked out suddenly muttering that it was just "too hot up here."
After one breakthrough, the captured men were marched
through the lobby to the door. A cautious woman tried to check
the powder room to see if anyone was hiding there. When she tried
to open the door, she discovered someone holding it closed from the
Quickly she called a policeman. With an official motion the
representative of the law shoved the door open to find two coeds.
The officer backed away with a red face.
There were reports that some men did use the powder room at
one time as a hideout. Rumors also told of certain male attempts
to hide in dressing room lockers.
One group of three took to the dusty catwalk above the back
stage activities. Everything would have been all right for the trio,
which had been on the lofty perch since 5 p.m., if one of them
had not laughed.
But there was little to laugh about when the fights started and
both students and policemen got hurt. One policeman complained
of a hole in his ear wnicn ne tmnKs was Diuen out. Anomer naa
long scrape on his shin.
Despite all the excitement, the general opinion of the police
was that the men had a good time. Any preventive measures, they
said, would have to be taken up through the University.
How did the police feel to be lucky males legally allowed to
see the show that caused all the trouble? "Oh," one said, "it's our

to the wjdest variety of tastes in
art, Laging explained.
Resemblance of painting to ob

means of photographs of real

Laging has expressed hopes
that this arrangement of the
show will stimulate an apprecia
tion of art in many people who
heretofore have haul little un
derstanding of the close relation
between art and reality.
Many well-known masterpieces
and prize-winning works of art
have been borrowed for the show
from museums, dealers and pri
vate collectors in the East. Of the
150 pieces in the show, the
greater number are oil paintings,
but there are numerious prints,
watercolors, ceramics and pieces
The exhibition will be open to
the public from Monday through
March 31. Laging suggests that
groups, sucn as fraternities and
sororities, call his office to arrange
for special tours of the show.
